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 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

Pokémon Go has gotten me to explore just-around-the-corner places I'd never otherwise think to check out, and for that, I am thankful. But depending on where you live, you might not be so fortunate with Niantic's predetermined real-w...   read

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

Overwatch's Ana feels like a true sniper, and a welcome addition to the game

We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today. Yes, if you're so inclined, you can boot up your Battle.net client right...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Descent

The last time we checked in with Black Ops III's DLC, Treyarch started to slouch a bit. Eclipse was a great add-on all things considered, but it didn't shine in comparison to Awakening, which had some of the brighter maps in the e...   read

Armed teens used Pokemon Go to rob nine people

Pokemon Go is a security risk in more ways than one. In O’Fallon, Missouri, some enterprising stick up men have used the game's real world location-based hook to lie in wait and commit a series of armed robberies. "About eight or nine...   read
