Pokemon Go PSA: You can pick how Eevee evolves

The internet sleuths over at Reddit have found, fairly convincingly, a way to guarantee your preferred Eevee evolution (or "Eeveelution," if you want to get cute about it). There is one obvious drawback and that is taking a hit to your Poke...   read

Nintendo's mini NES will only ever support the 30 included games

Nintendo is cashing in on nostalgia this November with a cute miniature NES that plays 30 games. The company has since clarified what the $60 system can and can't do, and it's about what you'd expect. The NES Classic Edition is not compatib...   read

You can request new PokeStops and Gyms for Pokemon Go

Review: Energy Hook

"No combat. No story. Nothing else like it." The trailer for Energy Hook, a high-flying new extreme sports game from the guy behind the beloved web-swinging mechanic in Spider-Man 2, does not lie. I've always been fond of games that priorit...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Descent

Armed teens used Pokemon Go to rob nine people
