Pokemon Go was the most searched term on Google this year

Odds are, you know someone who has played Pokemon Go. I mean, you might not have partaken in the craze, but you probably caught a co-worker who doesn't know their Pichu from Pikachu playing it, trying to make sense of it all. Google backs u...   read

Super Mario Run challenges are now live on My Nintendo

Super Mario Run is set to arrive today, but My Nintendo already went ahead and pulled the trigger on their special Platinum coin challenges. Many of them require you to own the "full game" (read: spend $10), and merely beat all of the game'...   read

Pokemon Go's 'nearby' feature should be available in 'most of the world'

Looks like Super Mario Run will require a persistent connection

I knew there had to be a catch to Super Mario Run. While we originally thought that was going to be microtransactions, it looks like the game will require an online connection at all times. That shouldn't be the biggest issue for a mobile p...   read

[Update: It's real, but not nearly as cool as it sounded. The below beverage exists, but doesn't grant anything in-game, it's just branded. As of 11AM PT today, most if not all Starbucks locations will roll out nationwide in becoming a gym ...   read

Transformers: Forged to Fight is 30 years in the making

When I first saw the trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Forged to Fight I thought it looked kind of bad-ass. When I got the end and saw that it was for mobile, I still thought it looked kind of bad-ass, but would rather have a stra...   read

Apollo Justice is finally heading over to mobile devices

For awhile now, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney hasn't been available on iOS or Android. You could have most of the story with the other four games, but one of the most divisive (and important) chapters was absent. That won't be a problem any ...   read

Rip and tear (pin)balls in Bethesda Pinball next month

Zen Studios had runaway success with its Zen Pinball series. While the first game wasn't too widespread, Zen Pinball 2 has been ported to more devices than I can count. It even has a Wii U port, which is basically just for show with most de...   read

Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia delayed

Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia kind of came out of left field, and is yet another of Square Enix's many spinoffs for their existing properties (this is a spinoff of a fighting game spinoff franchise!). If you aren't aware of it yet it'...   read

In an attempt to get people up and at 'em, Niantic is rolling out another Pokemon Go event that offers some XP bonuses (again, to the point that they should be normally). The previously announced daily bonus feature will be applied goi...   read

Mobius Final Fantasy is coming to Steam, maybe some of you will actually play it

Playing a fully fledged Final Fantasy game on a mobile device probably doesn't sound like fun to a lot of people out there. I know for a fact it didn't around these parts, as many sounded off around the launch of Mobius Final Fantasy t...   read

Pokemon Go's gym overhaul and catch bonus update rolling out

Pokemon Go had two updates in the hopper -- one that was relatively tame and should have been in by default, and the other, a nice change to a system that naturally required fan feedback and adjustment. Operative phrase here being "had," be...   read

Oh god, Japan made a horse dating game

Remember Hatoful Boyfriend? The pigeon dating game? Thought that was weird? Almost as if it were a competition, now Usaya Co. has released a dating game where you play as a girl (oneigh-san, if you will) and suddenly meet a horse ...   read

This boring Pokemon Go update will probably appeal to hardcore players

Niantic has been taking it easy these past few months when it comes to sweeping changes. They seemingly have things down pat when it comes to server stability (no doubt due to the massive exodus of players), and although "big things" are pr...   read

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is getting a smartphone game

Madoka is one of the best shows I've watched in the last five years or so. What starts off as a standard slice of life/magical girl narrative becomes so much more, and I won't spoil it beyond that. It's also the kind of series that would tr...   read
