Comments Off on Pokemon Go! Trainer’s Log Day 6

Today, we went in search of more Pokemon (go figure, right?) We first went to the community center to go swimming, and then tried to take over the Team Valor gym that was there. We have been having a LOT of issues taking over other gyms – it either crashes and won’t let us into the gym, or we get the opponent’s pokemon down to 1 hp and it won’t let us do anything else. This has been VERY frustrating. Our pokemon are powerful enough to take the gyms, but the system just will not let us! We finally got over to the dam today, and of course, there were a TON of trainers there. That’s definitely the one thing that I like about this game – there are so many more people into catching pokemon and whatnot than I originally thought. We brought out bikes and decided to bike […]

Comments Off on Pokemon Go! Trainers Log

Hey guys! I figured it would be fun to do a daily log regarding my shenanigans in Pokemon Go! Hope you enjoy! I’ve condensed the first 5 days here – but after today, I’ll be doing a daily update to the log. Enjoy! Trainer’s Log – Day 1 Never thought in my lifetime that I would become a real life Pokemon trainer, but  here I am! I am starting out with Squirtle. There are a lot of grass types around here. I can’t figure out how to get shit from the Pokestops yet. Had a few pokemon appear in my car while driving, which scared the sh*t out of me.     Day 2 Paras was hanging out near the house, but ran off when I attempted to catch it. Don’t worry, you little shit, I’ll find you, and I’ll catch you! Joined a Team today – Team Mystic. Tried to […]

Comments Off on Pokemon No-Go

Playing Pokémon Go this week has proven to be pretty difficult thanks to a wide array of issues.Starting right from the get-go, given the lack of clarity from developer Niantic as to when the game would actually launch across various regions. Players were left guessing and frantically reloading their news feed on Wednesday in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, the game was out in that part of the world. Fans then started downloading other region’s copies of the game in hopes that it would work and also transfer/save their data upon the U.S. release. Once the game officially launched for US gamers at 9PM EST, the servers got so overloaded that it was impossible for many people to try the game out. I was able to play for a total of five minutes before Pokémon Go started crashing or freezing on me, if it was able to get past the server issues at […]

Comments Off on Disney Infinity 3.0 for Wii-U

Disney Infinity is an action-adventure sandbox video game developed by Avalanche Software and published by Disney Interactive Studios. It’s one of a million different Amiibo or Skylanders clones that’s come out and taken over shelves at your local game section, and I’ll admit I’m a little skeptical of the entire genre of obnoxious, scalper-ridden figurine games. I’ve never been fond of games that require me to keep pouring out money to access features I theoretically already bought when I got the disk in the first place, and I definitely didn’t think I needed another set of cheap plastic things to lose. “My pop vinyl collection has me covered, thank you very much.” I would say to myself as I routinely passed by the ever expanding shelf of competing plastic crap. Well, one bad week, a sale, and a tax return later, and there I was traipsing into the house with […]

Comments Off on Watch Dogs Review

When the cyberpunk genre of science fiction is intertwined in the realm of video games, the product usually comes out great. Deus EX, Fear Effect and Final Fantasy VII are the examples of the perfect balance of the two completely different realms. Now, we can add another game to that list: Watch Dogs.

Comments Off on The Legend of Zelda Wii U. Could it not be Link?

The new The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U looked great, didn’t it? But what as up with Link? He wasn’t wearing his iconic green tunic or hat. Why did Link look so weird? “No one explicitly said that that was Link.” That’s what Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma told me when I asked him about Link’s — or whomever it is — new appearance during an interview at Nintendo’s E3 booth. He said this with a smile and a laugh. Could the bow-wielding hero we just saw not be Link? Earlier in the interview, Aonuma told me that he was always looking for ways to shake up Zelda’s conventions. We saw this in the recent A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS, which let you explore dungeons in any order you wanted while renting items from a store. But a Zelda game without Link as the main hero? That would be […]
