Posted by on 7:48 pm in Video Games | 0 comments

The next Pokemon Go Community Day is right around the corner. The event takes place this Saturday, June 16, giving players another chance to capture rare Pokemon and earn some extra bonuses. As Niantic previously revealed, the featured Pokemon in this month’s Community Day is Larvitar. The Rock-type monster will spawn much more frequently than normal during the event hours, and if past Community Days are any indication, players will also have a chance to encounter Shiny variants of the Pokemon. Any Larvitar that evolves into Tyranitar...

E3 2018: Xbox Is Investing In Its Future–And That’s A Big Deal

Prior to E3, things weren’t looking great for Microsoft. Booty says that he also has some “complete blank slates.” For the hiring of Darrell Gallagher, who heads up the newly formed Santa Monica studio, Booty gave him a “blank piece of paper,” and told him, “You go hire the team you want. You go work on the game you want. We’re going to get you a building you want, and we want to just start a studio from scratch.” The future of Xbox games sounds promising, but 2018 still feels light on...

Concrete Genie is E3 2018’s must-play game about bullying

In a convention about wars past, present and future, sports games and fantasy worlds set far, far away from our own, one game stood out to me with its strong grounding in reality and even stronger message of anti-bullying. It’s called Concrete Genie and while it didn’t get a trailer during Sony’s keynote, it’s something I couldn’t get enough of at the show. So how exactly did a game about a teenager with an oversized paint brush enthrall me? While soldiers are important to keeping the world safe and secure, and...

Samsung’s Chromebook Plus (V2) gets turbocharged with an Intel processor

Samsung has revealed a second-generation of its Chromebook Plus convertible, with the new spin on the 2-in-1 laptop getting beefed up with an Intel processor. The original Samsung Chromebook Plus ran with an ARM-based hexa-core CPU, whereas the new model goes with an Intel processor – just like its Chromebook Pro sibling – albeit not a Core family CPU, but a Celeron 3965Y. That’s a dual-core chip which runs at 1.5GHz with a TDP of 6W, and has considerably more grunt than its predecessor’s ARM effort. Samsung’s Chromebook...

Ubisoft’s AI lip-sync tech could have applications beyond gaming

We’re sure we’re not alone when we say that when someone mentions AI in games, our minds immediately jump to NPCs and enemies; their movements, their reactions, their, well, intelligence. All of it is part of a game’s AI. But, as it turns out, AI is so much more than that in games. After a conversation with Yves Jacques, the head of Ubisoft’s La Forge technology research project, we gained a much better idea of how AI is being used to make game development faster and more affordable, as well as improve the immersive...

Just Cause 4 Leaked Again Ahead Of E3

Just Cause 4 has now leaked twice. An ad served through Steam (via Kotaku) shows promotional art with a call to pre-order. This is the second retailer listing hinting at the existence of the game, after Walmart spilled the beans on several games with placeholder pages for several unannounced games last month. Clicking to pre-order reportedly bounced users back to the main Steam page, and the ad has seemingly been removed. We expect to see it announced at the showcase for Square Enix, the current publisher of the Just Cause series. That...

Facebook takes on Twitch with launch of new FB.GG game streaming hub

After announcing an exclusive game streaming program in January this year, Facebook has now launched its very own answer to Twitch and other popular game streaming services. The new hub is dubbed FB.GG and will act as a homepage for all the game streaming content found on the social media platform. It’ll also be home to what Facebook is calling its “gaming creators” – gamers that the social giant has paid to exclusively stream on its platform. While the creator program has been in action for almost half a year, this new hub is designed...

Fortnite Map Locations: Posters, Search Between Playground — How To Complete Season 4 Challenges

Season 4 ofSome of the rewards available in Season 4 That’s how things have worked in past seasons, but Season 4 also has new types of challenges. Blockbusters involve completing all of the challenges from a given week. Doing so earns you an additional reward on top of what you’d get from finishing those challenges anyway. The first Blockbuster challenge you finish pays out a loading screen, which serves as a clue that directs you to an in-game location where you can get a free Battle Pass tier. To find that, though, you’ll...

West Of Loathing Review: The Wild Bunch

West Of Loathing Review: The Wild Bunch

West of Loathing is not as simple as its art style might lead you to believe. Its black and white color palette, stick-figure characters, and crude hand-drawn art might appear to be devoid of personality. But in practice, its visual simplicity acts as a malleable canvas for its imagination to run away with reckless abandon. West of Loathing is an involved Western adventure game/RPG hybrid that embraces absolute absurdity with mechanical flexibility and comedic personality, making role-playing in its monochromatic old West thoroughly...
