No GravatarNew Pokemon are coming to the world of Pokemon Go as announced by Niantic.

Game Update Welcomes Pokémon Originally Discovered in the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver Video Games and Introduces Updated Encounter Gameplay, Evolution Options, New Berries and Expanded Avatar Items
San Francisco—Feb. 15, 2017—Niantic, Inc. and The Pokémon Company International announced an additional 80 Pokémon will begin to appear in Pokémon GO later this week. These include Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region from the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games, including Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Trainers will encounter these Pokémon “in the wild” as they embark on adventures and explore their neighborhoods and cities to catch Pokémon. In addition to Pokémon that will appear in the game for the first time, the latest update introduces new gameplay mechanics for Trainers to master, including new encounter gameplay, new Evolution items, two new Berries, and expanded outfit and accessory options for their Trainer avatars.

“Today is a momentous occasion for Pokémon GO as we welcome more Pokémon and build upon the encounter and capture mechanics for the passionate global community of Trainers playing the game,” said John Hanke, founder and Chief Executive Officer, Niantic, Inc. “Pokémon GO is a live experience which we’ll be continuing to support and evolve in new and interesting ways for years to come.”

“With Pokémon GO, The Pokémon Company endeavored to create a compelling game based on the concept of encountering and catching Pokémon in the real world,” said J.C. Smith, Senior Director, Consumer Marketing, The Pokémon Company International. “The amazing response to Pokémon GO by millions of existing and new Pokémon fans around the world is remarkable. We’re thrilled to keep the adventure going by welcoming these Pokémon to this engaging new way of experiencing the fun of the Pokémon brand.”

With the latest Pokémon GO game update, new Pokémon evolution options will give players the ability to use new Evolution items to evolve their Pokémon into ones that were originally discovered in the Johto region. While catching Pokémon, Trainers can use two new Berries—the Nanab Berry, which slows a Pokémon’s movements, and the Pinap Berry, which doubles the amount of Candy received if the next catch attempt succeeds. Trainers will also be able to customize their avatar’s appearance with a new selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items. Additional items will be available for purchase from the in-game Pokémon GO shop.

Trainers can download Pokémon GO from the App Store for iOS devices and Google Play Store for Android. A version of Pokémon GO for Apple Watch is also available through the App Store. Nintendo’s Pokémon GO Plus device, which allows Trainers to catch Pokémon and collect items with the push of a button without looking at their screens, is being replenished at retail locations in support of this latest update, while supplies last.

This is a big addition to Pokémon Go and may even cause the game to get a second lease on life. This has me very interested, and now I wonder what next they will bring. Are you excited for this? Will you resume playing if you had stopped?

Nintendo has revealed DLC is coming to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,.

There will b an Expansion Pass for the game at launch for $19.99 / £17.99 / €19.99. By buying it, you will receive three new treasure chests that can be found at the Great Plateau. One contains a shirt with a Switch logo that Link can wear, which is exclusive to the Expansion Pass. Nintendo has said that “The other two will deliver useful items.”

The first DLC pack launches around this summer. It will come with  the following: A Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode, & a new feature for the in-game map.

The second pack will come at the holidays. Thus DLC adds “new challenges that will let players enjoy a new dungeon and a new original story.”

Nintendo has stated that the Expansion Pass will be available for both the Switch and Wii U versions of the game.

Nintendo said the following about the DLC announcement.

“The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U consoles is one of the largest, most engaging video games Nintendo has ever created. While the main game offers players an engrossing quest that will keep them entertained for hours, as well as the freedom to explore the vast Hyrule at their own pace, the game world provides a rich canvas that offers the opportunity for additional adventures. As a result, the first-ever downloadable content for the main-line Legend of Zelda series is in development.”

Funcom sent out the following

 

Conan Exiles, Funcom’s new multiplayer open-world survival game, launched successfully into PC Early Access last week. The game has been dominating the #1 spot on Steam’s Global Top Seller List and Funcom is both thrilled and grateful to be able to share that the game sold 320,000 units first week and that all development costs have been recouped. Looking ahead, Funcom is working hard to live up to the Early Access goals and will be working together with the community to improve the game and update it with exciting new content and features.

“We are deeply humbled and very grateful for the initial success of Conan Exiles,” says Funcom CEO Rui Casais. “Funcom has gone through some challenging times in recent years and seeing the game we have poured so much time and effort into gain this amount of traction so quickly is very invigorating for everyone who works here. This is just the start of the Early Access adventure and we will do whatever it takes to make sure Conan Exiles turns into a fully-fledged game that has something to offer new and old fans of both Conan and survival games.”

Funcom today also released the custom Conan Exiles Dev Kit allowing creators everywhere to develop modifications for the game. Anyone can now create and upload ‘mods’ to the Conan Exiles Steam Workshop, whether it’s small changes and quality of life improvements, or total conversion mods introducing new creatures, characters, and worlds. To get started, head over to UnrealEngine.com and download the Unreal launcher to access the dev kit.

Funcom is also excited to share that it will reveal the future of Conan Exiles at this year’s Game Developer Conference in San Francisco. Here press will get a glimpse at what is coming and will get an exclusive first showing of new content and features the team is working on. Funcom will also be present on the showfloor at PAX East in Boston, where gamers can drop by to play the game and chat with the developers. Funcom will also be handing out exclusive print copies of its custom Conan Exiles comic book produced by Dark Horse Comics.

The sudden high influx of players immediately from Early Access launch was higher than anticipated, and the team has been working around the clock since launch to iron out the teething issues. The official servers had to be taken temporarily offline due to issues with the original provider, but new official servers are now being brought online and players can also jump onto over 12,000 privately run servers. The developers have patched the game many times the past two weeks, and going forward the team will be divided into those who focus on fixing issues and optimizing performance and those who add new content and features.

These are all really good things and good news for the game. I think I will have to re-review the game sooner than I thought. If you have not yet seen it, my review is here. I hope this continues to be a great ga,e

After its disastrous launch, and sales far lower than what Capcom had been anticipating, Street Fighter V has had a hard time. There may be a silver lining here however, as the game has been approved for release in Mainland China.

This could be a big new market and considering how online competitive games are a major business there, this could actually help Capcom turn around Street Fighter V’s fortunes. If done right, this could end up ensuring a season 3 and even more fighting games from Capcom, should the audience bite. I hope the esports scene in China embraces the game and makes it a success. We need more fighting games and one horrible launch shouldn’t destroy all of the Street Fighter series.

No GravatarCapcom has released a new trailer for Street Fighter V, this time to show off the second character of Season 2. Spoilers for those who have not played story mode yet.

Kolin, the assistant of Gil, the leader of the illuminati, makes her debut as a playable character. She has an ice theme to her moves and looks really fun to play as.

The trailer has a new song, called “It’s Not Design” by Lupe Fiasco feat. Salim

It’s time to take the big leap and become a homeowner … in Tamriel.

 

Today PC/Mac players of The Elder Scrolls Online receive the first major DLC of 2017 – Homestead – a free update that will allow them to buy apartments, homes, manors – and even an island – in Tamriel. Available for both in-game Gold and through the Crown Store, homes can be customized with more than 2,000 decorating items, including furniture, décor, books, barrels and a whole lot more.

 

Homestead will release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on February 21.

 

Tons of Homes!

Homestead releases with nearly 40 instanced homes to choose from, each styled after one of the game’s 10 playable races. Anyone who would like to grab their own Tamriel digs can get one for free through an initial tutorial quest. Once that introductory quest is completed, players can move on and up, owning multiple homes of various sizes that can be shared across all of their in-game characters.

 

Not Your Friend’s House

Owning a house is only the beginning of Homestead – it’s not truly a home until you decorate it. Players can make their new residences truly unique by acquiring and placing more than 2,000 items with the game’s new Housing Editor. Furniture and other décor are available through in-game vendors and the Crown Store, but players can also craft their own using existing crafting skills. Available décor includes tables, chairs, chests, beds, bars, counters as well as decorating items like books, food, barrels, paintings, light fixtures, plants, trees, and more. Looking for more utility? Players can also place items like combat dummies, crafting tables and assistants in their homes.

The Elder Scrolls Online has had a lot of work done since its disastrous launch and has truly come into its own. With great add on content, and the upcoming Morrowind expansion, now seems like a great time to get into it. It may not be Elder Scrolls VI But it is good in its own way.
