Pokémon Go has revolutionized what could be done in a SmartPhone title. It has taken all of the platform’s strengths and used them to create a great game anyone can play. Since its release, it has become the most popular application on SmartPhones…an incredible feat given the wide array of applications out there.

When Pokémon Go was first revealed, the game’s developers also announced they app could be used in conjunction with the Pokémon Go Plus accessory, a Bluetooth enabled device that could help players catch Pokémon and in-game items in Pokémon Go without having to keep the application running.

It is my sad duty to inform all of you that the Pokémon Go Plus accessory, originally announced for release at the end of July, has been delayed until September.

The third trailer for the CG animated feature film KINGSGLAIVE Final Fantasy XV was released during San Diego Comic Con 2016 and it is without a doubt the best looking computer generated images I have ever seen. Square has once again pushed the boundaries of the medium beyond what any other studio has done and this trailer only gives a brief glimpse into it.

Along with this trailer we now know the film’s official release schedule.  KINGSGLAIVE Final Fantasy XV is coming to theatres August 19th, 2016 for a very limited run.  It will then release on digital platforms starting August 30th, 2016. The movie is going to be bundled on Blu-Ray Disc with both the PS4 and Xbox One  Final Fantasy XV Collector’s Editions on September 30th, 2016.

For those of you unable to get a Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy XV, KINGSGLAIVE Final Fantasy XV will get two seperate releases on Blu-Ray Disc, one of which will be bundled with BROTHERHOOD: Final Fantasy XV on October 4th, 2016.

If you’re like me and you enjoyed the original Halo Wars you were probably bummed out when the studio who made it was closed down by Microsoft. I had little hope that I would ever see what happened to the crew of the ship we helped command, it turns out my hope was not misplaced because Halo Wars 2 is coming early next year.

Now, straight from San Diego Comic Con 2016,  we have our first look at what happened to the crew of The Spirit of Fire, and what’s in store for players this time around. Enjoy.

Halo Wars 2 is coming February 2017 to Xbox One and Windows 10.

Let’s Play Batman: Arkham Knight DLC Harley Quinn Story Pack With Video Commentary July 20, 2016

Maniac has been playing Batman: Arkham Knight on the PS4 for the past two weeks and while we are not done playing the game yet, he decided to check out some of the game’s downloadable content (DLC).

The first DLC we are going to check out is the Harley Quinn Story Pack. Codes for this DLC mission were included with the initial run of the game and is included with the Season Pass. In it you take control of Harley Quinn as she tries to free Poison Ivy before the events of the main game.

Harley Quinn handles a lot differently than Batman, she has her own moves and her own gadgets.  Let’s see if Maniac can handle her.

Batman: Arkham Knight is out now for the PS4, PC and Xbox One.
