China still isn't lifting their ban on Pokemon Go because it's 'too dangerous'

From the start, we knew that Pokemon Go probably wouldn't release in China. The government is just too paranoid about it, and as we've seen in other regions, they don't want folks wandering around where they shouldn't be roaming. As of this...   read

I woke up this morning to the news that the six Mega Man mobile games have hit both the iOS and Android marketplaces. They're $1.99 each, so $12 in total, and I thought to myself -- hey, $12 for all six classic games, on the go, whenev...   read

Ariana Grande is so into Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius

I always find it strange when there are celebrity cameos in video games. I'm not talking about something like the zaniness of Keith David being in Saints Row as Keith David (...after having voiced Julius in the first two games), but more li...   read

Android users can now pre-register for Super Mario Run

I'm really surprised an APK of Super Mario Run hasn't been crafted out of the iOS version and mass downloaded, but Android users hopefully won't have to wait too much longer to play. That's because you can now pre-register for the...   read

That Final Fantasy XV pinball game now has an expiration date

Justice Monsters Five, the pinball game created to promote Final Fantasy XV, kind of came and went. I mean, I played it inside of XV proper at random cafes and had a great time (I love the art), but I never really gave the sp...   read

With no new content for Super Mario Run, ever, is the base game enough?

A typical mobile strategy is to release a really great foundation of a game (usually a runner), to get people talking and push it to the top of the charts. Then, start monetizing the hell out of it, gradually adding in new stages and mechan...   read

Looks like Super Mario Run will require a persistent connection
