As far as Pokémon Go is concerned, only cheaters should be able to get massive amounts of XP in a short amount of time. Well, about that...
Over the last week, Pokémon Go underwent a couple of mechanical changes that players really, really don’t like.
In the course of a few weeks, Pokémon Go has gone from a mega hit, to a broken game even its most ardent fans cannot defend. This shift in the community is due to mostly one thing: a lack of communication from Niantic.
Uh oh. Those services show players where monsters will spawn in Pokémon Go? You know, the ones that eeeeveryone is using? Well, the creators of Pokémon Go don’t sound very fond of them.
All Pokémon are not created equal: some are definitely better than others. If you’re serious about creating a formidable team, or if you want the satisfaction of having some of the best monsters available in Pokémon Go, you’ve come to the right place.
Being the very best (like no one ever was) is surprisingly difficult in Pokémon Go. You can’t just grind your way to a strong Pokémon anymore: you’ve got to get out there and explore. We’ve got some pointers to help you make the best out of your journey.
For the last week, Pokémon Go players have been taking part in a secret battle to gain control of the most visible and coveted gym in the entire country: the White House.
Happy Wheels has been on the internet for a long time. You’ve probably played it, or watched a YouTuber play it, or at least heard of this gruesome ragdoll physics game. Well, now it’s on iOS—and I dove in to see whether or not it still holds up.
Nuclear bunkers are not meant to save people in the world of Fallout. Vaults are for experimentation, and even though Fallout Shelter gives you no built-in way to conduct experiments, creative players are still finding ways to do “research.”
In 2009, a strange Facebook account appeared out of nowhere and friended people en-masse. The name on the account was Junko Junsui, and she had a message for anyone willing to listen.
If you’ve been on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or Vine lately, then you’ve probably seen pictures or videos of strange, cartoony characters recently. Maybe they’re pole dancing. Maybe they’re singing Frozen’s Let It Go. Maybe they have a celebrity’s face. Or maybe they look like a monstrosity that shouldn’t exist.
On July 10th, 2014, a small, mysterious game called "Do Not Believe His Lies" was uploaded to the iOS app store. Since then, over 40,000 people have downloaded the app. Nobody has beaten it. Hell, nobody quite knows what it is, either.
Last week, we put out a call for the best games for killing time with your little pocket computer, and you, the time-wasters of Kinja, delivered. Here are some of your favorites—plenty of fodder for anyone who wants to up their subway commute game beyond Threes (which, yes, is still extremely popular).
Thirty years ago this week, Russian computer programmer Alexey Leonidovich Pajitnov created Tetris. Unveiled behind the Iron Curtain, the deceptively simple, maddeningly addictive game soon left the Soviet Union. It lived on dozens of platforms, but its Lennon-McCartney (Lenin-McCartney?) partner was Nintendo's Game…
It's been 25 since Stan Sakai's ronin rabbit Miyamoto Usagi, star of the comic book Usagi Yojimbo, graced the video game world with his katana-wielding skills. But now Usagi has made the leap to the mobile gaming platform in his very own game, Usagi Yojimbo: Way of the Ronin.
Games on Android have gotten really, really good. With phones regularly packing in 1.5GHz quad-core processors and 2GB of RAM, the games are fast approaching console-quality. The one thing holding them back? Touchscreen controls aren't nearly as good as a handheld controller. The MOGA Mobile Gaming System aims to kill…
Nvidia's just showing off now. Specifically, their next-gen Tegra quad-core chipset, code-named Project Kal-El. As you can see in the video, the 12-core Nvidia GPU includes support for trie dynamic lighting; the first time we've seen something like this. [Nvidia]
The light-spraying, shadow-bending dreamscapes carved out of our noir nightmares made possible by the latest version of the Unreal Engine are the reason why we're always looking for what's next in gaming.
The first tease of Xbox Live on Windows Phone 7 piqued my interest, sure. But after I had a little hands-on time with some of the games planned for launch, Microsoft's officially got my undivided attention.
By the end of 2009, computer and graphics chip designer ARM says we'll see the first sub-$150 cellphones using the low-power Mali 200 GPU, which will give devices greater graphics capabilities than the current-gen iPhone.
