Who's the better Pokémon: Serperior, Emboar, or Samurott? photo
Who's the better Pokémon: Serperior, Emboar, or Samurott?
by Jordan Devore

The next distribution event for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will give us a chance to score Serperior, Emboar, and Samurott, each with their own Hidden Ability. You'll need to update your game to version 1.2 and redeem a Mystery Gift code. That's it! Here's the schedule:

  • Serperior: January 22 - November 30. Use code POKEMON497 in Mystery Gift.
  • Emboar: January 29 - November 30. The code will be revealed on Pokemon.com.
  • Samurott: February 5 - November 30. The code will be revealed in the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter.

With that info out of the way, this is your cue to fight about which of the three Pokémon is best. For me, it's unquestionably Emboar. Pokémon Black/White marked the first time I didn't start with a Water type because, sorry, Samurott, but we can't be friends. And Serperior is clearly evil.

Assassin's Creed fans' best guesses for Victory in painstaking detail photo
Assassin's Creed fans' best guesses for Victory in painstaking detail
by Brett Makedonski

There's a normal cycle of news for finding out about upcoming videogames. After a tightly-controlled reveal, details will trickle out slowly -- just enough at a time to barely placate prospective players, their longing for the game growing ever so strong until it climaxes at release.

Or, at least, that's how it'd always go if publishers had their way.

Assassin's Creed fans are taking things into their own hands. After a leak of the code-named (or actually named) Assassin's Creed Victory, the franchise's forums are ablaze with investigative speculation as to any and all possible theories about the game. These are some of the best talking points.

DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition goes above and beyond photo
DmC Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition goes above and beyond
by Alessandro Fillari

It's been just over two years since the release of one of last gen's most polarizing titles. Back in 2010, Capcom made a bold and wildly unexpected decision to hand one of its most-loved franchises to a Western developer, and ever since many people have been vocal about their opinion of DmC Devil May Cry. A common topic for debate among fans of the Devil May Cry series is the aftermath of Ninja Theory's attempt at rebooting Capcom's beloved action-brawler.

Was it worth it? Did it succeed in what it set out to do? And just what the hell was up with Dante's new look? While many of these questions are open for discussion, none of those belittle the fact that we're still talking about the game years later. And because of that, Capcom and the folks at Ninja Theory aren't quite finished with their reimagining of the franchise. With the surprise announcement of DmC: Definitive Edition last year, along with a revisit to Devil May Cry 4 on the way, it's clear Capcom has not forgotten about its devil-hunting trash-talker.

During a special hands-on session with the Definitive Edition, I got to experience DmC with a fresh coat of paint and a much-needed re-tinkering. And after seeing how this enigmatic brawler's makeover has turned out, this new outing might just make you a believer.
