Pokémon Go Fest 2018 has wrapped and rewards from the event are live in Pokémon Go until July 23rd. Trainers will find Pokémon Eggs will hatch in half the distance it usually takes (provided incubation starts during the promotion), and double candy is being awarded for caught and hatched Pokémon. Also, a special Summer variant Pikachu is out in the wild and should turn up in higher frequency all over the place. Trainers playing Pokémon Go will not need to do anything special to make use of these rewards.

Now’s the perfect time to get back to hatching your eggs. If you’re like me, you’ve probably changed the batteries on your Pokémon Go Plus.

Pokémon Go is out now for Android and iOS SmartPhones/Tablets.

Do I really need to post anything else here? You’ve got Nathan Fillion, the star of Firefly and Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, playing Nathan Drake in an Uncharted fanfilm. Give yourself a fifteen minute break and watch it now!

After years of false starts, incorrect assumptions, and poorly hired directors, I can say that finally, there’s someone in Hollywood that actually “gets” Uncharted.

We’re pretty excited about the recent announcement of the arcade game Halo: Fireteam Raven. The interactive shoot “em up game will be exclusively offered in Dave and Buster’s arcades all across the US later this summer and will offer a one-hundred and thirty inch 4K screen.

Today, Microsoft announced they’ll be integrating gameplay and statistic tracking for Halo: Fireteam Raven with Xbox Live. That means Halo players with an active Xbox Live account will be able to link their account to their game each time they play. You can read all the details about how to link your arcade gameplay to your Halo Waypoint profile here. Essentially, you will need to log into your Xbox Live profile on a smart device, select Halo: Fireteam Raven from the Halo Waypoint Website, and scan your profile’s uniquely generated QR code when prompted by the arcade machine.

Halo: Fireteam Raven is coming later this summer exclusively to arcades.

A minor update has been released for Apple iDevices today. The new update, iOS 11.4.1 is available for all iOS 11-powered iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch portables. Lots of new bug fixes are in place, including an important Exchange mail update and fixes the ability to find lost AirPods using the Find My iPhone app.

However, those minor bug fixes are probably not the reason you should download the iOS update right now. The new update also includes a security feature which will prevent illegal defeat devices from breaking through your phone’s security without your password.

You can download the update right now using your device’s Software Update feature or through iTunes. Depending on your device and what version of iOS your device is currently running your device will need to download about 250MB of data.

The guys at Remedy made a big splash when they announced their next major game at the Sony E3 2018 Press Event. Since that announcement, we’ve been following the latest news about the game to the best of our ability. Earlier in the week, Remedy revealed that they had created a series of Developer Diaries about their next game, Control. Now, the first of Control‘s Developer Diaries has been released.

The focus of this diary is to describe the game’s story. We learn a little bit of background about the game’s protagonist Jessie, played by Courtney Hope (Quantum Break).

Remedy has promised more Developer Diaries are on the way and we will keep you posted on when they become available.

Control is coming to the PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2019. The game’s information notes it is expected to be enhanced for the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X.

Halo Series Finally Coming to Showtime June 28, 2018

The day the Xbox One was first announced back in 2013, the only Halo related announcement Microsoft chose to make at that event was that a Halo television series was in the works between Microsoft and Steven Spielberg. In the years since then, several Halo games have been announced and released, and we’ve heard nothing further about the project. Most people accidentally confused it for the Halo: Nightfall series which was included with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, but that project and the project first unveiled at the Xbox One announcement event were entirely different.

Today, Microsoft, 343 Industries, Steven Spielberg and Showtime have announced that a new Halo television series is coming to Showtime. The series is being produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and CBS. You can read the full official press release here.

Production of the show’s first season, which is going to be comprised of ten episodes, is expected to start in early 2019. No distribution method was given but the series will likely air on Showtime. Showtime is already included in most cable provider’s premium channel package.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit Released For Free June 25, 2018

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit was announced during E3 2018 and I’m happy to report it is now out on digital marketplaces completely free of charge. The game is part of the Life is Strange universe and takes place after the events of the first game and serves as a prequel to the recently announced upcoming sequel, Life is Strange 2. The game is 4K enhanced for the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, but sadly does not make use of trophies or achievements.

If you’re like me and have been waiting for any news about Life is Strange you need to give The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit a download right now. While the game has been officially released on most digital marketplaces (with the exception of PSN Europe, European PS4 owners will have to wait until midnight to play it) it is currently difficult to find. We found it on the Xbox One Store simply by searching for Captain Spirit. It’s currently a bit tougher to find on the PlayStation Store. I recommend searching out Life is Strange 2, the PSN considers Captain Spirit a demo for that game.

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is out now for the PC, Xbox One and PS4. We’re planning to stream our Let’s Play of the game later today!

Friends Lists, Gifts and Trading Added to Pokemon Go June 23, 2018

We’ve got some big news from Niantic to start your weekend, trainers. One of the first updates promised for Pokémon Go was the ability to trade Pokémon with friends. It’s been over a year and two generations since Pokémon Go was released and I’m happy to announce that feature has finally arrived!

Pokémon Go players starting at Level 10 will be able to create a Friend List with their peers. It works similarly to the friend codes from Nintendo’s 3DS or Switch handhelds. Friend Codes are uniquely generated for each Pokémon Go player. To get a friend added to your friend list, simply provide a friend your friend code, and accept theirs.

This is the first step players will need to take to make use of the new Trading and Gifting features. For right now, Niantic has revealed that Pokémon Go players will be able to gift special Alolan-Pokémon Eggs from Alolan Pokémon that have not previously been seen in the game. This includes Pokémon like the Alolan Meowth.

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