Pokemon Go's first ever event feels like an afterthought

In the first trailer for Pokemon Go, we saw a lot of cool shit. Battling on the spot, trading, and a fight with Mewtwo in Times Square. We all knew that the reality wasn't going to be nearly as enticing, but I don't think anyone could have ...   read

Miyamoto shows how to eat a burger while playing Super Mario Run

In talking up Super Mario Run's one-handed game design, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto recently went on the record to say that it's possible to play the upcoming mobile title while "riding the subway or, my favorite, eating a hamburger." That...   read

Japanese teens, um, rap about Miitomo

This is...something. Non-English rap has always rung weird to me. It's like that hit Italian song that's meant to sound like hit American music, but the singer is just stringing together nonsense sounds. There's something uncanny about it....   read

Fantastic sci-fi 4x board game Eclipse is coming to PC

One of 2011's hottest board games was Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy. It blended classic space 4X gameplay with a European-style board game mechanic governing the economy. I was fortunate enough to get a copy during its initial print run,...   read

Lay Lady Layton; Or, first they came for the Ghostbusters and I said nothing

First they made the Ghostbusters into women and the problem is that they weren't, at first. And you laughed. Oh how you laughed (perhaps at the film itself, I don't know, I'm too poor to afford movie theatres). But this is what we're talki...   read

Find out how Pokemon Go's tech actually works

I've seen a lot of confusion as to how Pokemon Go works, and some people think it relies on a pedometer tracker of sorts. Well, no, it's pretty much all GPS-based, and that even includes the egg hatching mechanic, which for sure seems ...   read

Hearthstone's latest hero is a Murloc, but you'll need to do some legwork to get him

Man Murlocs are great. Their ridiculous rallying cry is equal parts cute and terrifying, and I'm ready and willing to accept any and all of their additions to the Warcraft series. That includes the new Hearthstone hero Morgl (a Shaman)...   read

Pokemon porn searches rocket up as much as 336%

Pokemon Go, absent other big releases and cashing in on the ennui-staving nostalgia of the 25-to-35-year-old demographic, has blown up to be this month's Overwatch, albeit with 20 years of brand recognition behind it. Naturally more people ...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 6 features big names from the community

After the most recent episode of Minecraft: Story Mode, I'm looking forward to the new direction for the series. Simple, one-off episodes seem to fit better than an overwrought multi-episode arc. The sixth episode releases next week beginni...   read

PopCap aims for the moon, ends up with Bejeweled Stars

It's actually been 6 years since Bejeweled 3 and a cool 15 since the series' first iteration, even if I still can't reliably spell Bejeweled correctly. One of the reasons King is worth $6 billion is its match-3 Candy Crush, which hadn...   read

First Pokemon Go footage revealed, looks not great

Namco's Dark Souls mobile spinoff looks like rubbish

Ah, so this is what Bandai Namco trademarked: an endless runner. Some of you were spot on. Slashy Souls is a mobile title made possible in part by GameStop -- a company supposedly "not attempting" to be a publisher -- that will release on A...   read

Telltale's Walking Dead characters are here for a limited time in Road to Survival
