Jirachi Added to Pokemon Go August 21, 2019

The Mythical Pokemon Jirachi, which originally appeared as a Generation 3 Pokemon that could only be obtained through special means, has now been made available to Pokémon Go players through Special Field research. By completing various in-game quests, it’ll bring you closer to an encounter with the GEN3 mythical made famous in the animated Pokémon film, Jirachi Wish Maker.

This special line of research tasks has been done in the past to capture the Mythical Mew and Celebi. Here’s a look at the first set of quests you’ll need to complete.

If I may make one criticism about this quest line it is this. I’m fine with doing things like spinning PokéStops and capturing random Pokémon but seriously, by the time Niantic puts an end to demanding their players make new friends, it will probably require friending everyone on the planet with a smartphone.

Pokémon Go is out now for Android and iOS Smartphones and Tablets

We’re less than a few days away from the pending release of Control. Control is a game developed by Remedy, the creators of Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Quantum Break, and like many of the games Remedy developed previously, will be pushing the PC’s capabilities to its utmost limit.

Here’s a look at the game from Nvidia’s Gamescom 2019 show. Everything you’re about to see is done on PC with native Ray-Tracing.

Maybe it’s time I finally considered buying a new top of the line GPU…

It has been a long time coming, but we have an official release date for the upcoming re-release of Final Fantasy VIII. The game has been beloved by so many (except Spoony) for its unique story, original gameplay, and incredible soundtrack. For years we have been waiting for it to come to modern consoles like Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy IX did, and now we know it will.

The graphics look like they have been touched up, and the music’s quality is even better than I remember. Can’t wait to finally play this classic gem for myself!

Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (through Steam) September 3rd, 2019.
