When Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby arrive on the 3DS as remakes of Sapphire and Ruby from the GBA era, they'll be bringing along the contemporary refreshments we take for granted today -- like online play.

But it'll also arrive with a revamped returning feature -- Secret Base. It's basically a personal room for your Pokemon trainer that lets you create your own gym, set up traps for people who wander in, or create a custom decorative area. You can visit each other's creations by way of StreetPass or QR codes, which unlock new decorations or mechanics like faster egg hatching.

Yep, sounds amazing with the enhancements.

Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire get tin cases & pre-order toys in Europe

In the United States, if you buy both Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire at Toys R Us, you get a Charizard plush. In Europe, a GAME or Nintendo UK pre-order will net you a nifty tin case and a little toy when the game releases, November 28. I think Europe got the better deal, unless you must have both versions of the game and need a throw pillow or snuggle buddy. more

Pre-order Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire at Toys "R" Us to receive a Charizard plush

Toys "R" Us, as revealed in a print ad in the US, is currently running an in-store pre-order promotion where you can take home a cuddly new Charizard plush toy if you purchase both Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire...more

Mega Slowbro looks happier in motion

There are certain Pokémon who warrant getting a Mega Evolution for the ensuing stat increases, and others who you just want to see in a new form. Slowbro is unquestionably one I was curious about for the latter reason...more

Here's the official reveal of Mega Audino

The Mega Evolutions keep rolling out, with Mega Audino having leaked just the other day. But now there's a trailer to keep things official. Check out Audino's Mega Evolution, and a rundown on what the evolved version of this...more

Mega Evolution didn't need to turn Salamence into a UFO

I love Salamence. It started with a love of Bagon, whom I named Bacon, like most sane people. He was a cute little sassy dinosaur man like previous generation favorite Larvitar. And suffering through Shelgon (worse than Pupi...more

There are still more Pokémon Mega Evolutions out there

CoroCoro magazine has revealed a gaggle of additional Mega Evolutions to appear in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, including Mega Altaria, Mega Lopunny, and Mega Salamence. It seems that these are...more

All of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire's gym leaders have giant eyes now

The one thing that irked me about Pokemon X and Y was the 2D art, which seemed to shy away from the series' trademark look to a more homogenized anime blob style. Brawly's re-design has to be the worst. He wears those creepy toe shoes.  Compare for yourself below.more

I'm pumped to dress up Pikachu like a little fancy man

One of my favorite parts of Pokémon Black & White was the ability to haze your magical pets by dressing them up and having them perform musical theatre, so putting Pikachu in drag in Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby sounds awesome to me. If you want to watch the full Pokémon trailer in all its awkwardly-paced Nintendo-approved sterile family-friendly glory, here it is.more

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby's secret bases are the base-t

Somehow, the revival of secret bases is enough to have me considering Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I wasted ages originally seeking out the best laid out base so I could build a rocking pad with music mats, wa...more

If you haven't been paying much attention to the recent Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire details to come out of Japanese magazine CoroCoro and promptly appear online in blurry scans, not to worry -- it's pretty m...more

Persona 5 is coming to PS4, gets first trailer

Atlus' YouTube has our first look at Persona 5, which appears to have a ruffled brown haired boy protagonist and subways. Not a lot to get excited about aside from the fact that Persona 5 is exciting inherently. Though there was an announcement of a PS4 version of the previously PS3-restricted title. Makes sense. more

The latest Bravely Second trailer shows off the first in-game footage we've seen

This is only the second trailer for Bravely Second we've seen just yet, though with all the smaller tidbits of news surrounding the game, it sure seems like there's been a lot more. This time around we get to feast our eyes ...more

Costume Quest 2 is still cute, trying to be more engaging

Costume Quest, like every Double Fine game, is charming. It's a fresh-feeling, low stakes take on the JRPG genre, more Earthbound than Final Fantasy. Though, as Chad put it in his review, it's "RPG Lite," accessible...more
