New Pokemon Go Phone Game Takes Place In "Reality"

New Pokemon Go Phone Game Takes Place In “Reality”

by Peter Paltridgeon September 10, 2015
Until now Nintendo’s dabbles in the phone market have been a couple of cheap freemium titles that haven’t attracted much attention. This is the first effort that’s making people’s heads turn: Pokemon Go, an augmented reality game that lets you catch them all — in your own neighborhood. Produced by Niantic, a company that’ previously […]

Make Some Mario In This Week’s Nintendo Download

by Peter Paltridgeon September 10, 2015
This week in the Nintendo Download, you might have heard of a little game-slash-creative tool called Super Mario Maker. It’ll be out tomorrow in physical form, but it can also be downloaded as well if you can’t find it anywhere. Personally, I prefer the actual physical item, especially since it comes with a book. Because […]

Marvel’s ultra-gritty Daredevil series was an instant hit when it debuted on Netflix earlier this year, becoming one of the streaming service’s most popular and critically acclaimed shows.

Star Wars Rebels Out of Darkness

Review: “Star Wars Rebels” Season One Blu-ray – Return of the Force

by Ed Liuon September 10, 2015
Star Wars fans disillusioned with the property in the wake of the prequel movies and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV show can take some solace in hard economic fact: Disney didn’t pay more than $4 billion to Lucasfilm to leave it on a shelf or screw it up. Exhibit A in the anecdotal […]

Guitar Hero Live Announced For Apple TV

by Peter Paltridgeon September 9, 2015
This morning during Apple’s live presentation, the curtain was taken off the long-in-development Apple TV. Many features were shown off, few of them surprising (of course it has Siri), but there was also the news that Apple was serious about getting high-profile video games to come out for their television. Don’t expect Call of Duty, […]

Apple Finally Targets Artists With iPad Pro

Apple Finally Targets Artists With iPad Pro

by Peter Paltridgeon September 9, 2015
When the original iPad made its debut at the dawn of this decade, my first thought was that it would make waves in the art community by finally making Cintiq-like drawing screens ubiquitous and easy to find. Then it turned out the iPad did everything BUT drawing. Your only options were to fingerpaint, or to […]
Regular Show: The Movie

Review: “Regular Show: The Movie” – Just Another Day in the Park

by Ed Liuon September 8, 2015
I had some doubts whether Cartoon Network’s Regular Show could successfully make the leap to a movie with a running time almost six times longer than their usual 11-minute episodes. Thankfully, while the pacing may be different and the scale is a lot bigger, Regular Show: The Movie ends up a whole lot like a […]

That was fast. Shigeru Miyamoto, game designer of legend and creator of Pikmin (and over half of Nintendo’s cast of characters as a whole) spoke to the website Eurogamer last July. “It’s actually very close to completion,” he said. “Pikmin teams are always working on the next one.” This news item was embargoed by the […]
