We are a week away from the release of the first generational Pokemon games made specifically for the Nintendo Switch, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. Here’s the game’s newest trailer. Not everything in the trailer is gameplay footage but I think it succeeds in presenting the games’ world. Take a look and see for yourselves.

Gamers have been waiting for Death Stranding for years and at midnight tonight, their wait will be over. To hold you guys over, here’s the game’s latest commercial. It was made by the studio responsible for the hit tv show Rick and Morty and it is just hilarious.

We will try to do a midnight unboxing of the game after we get our hands on it. If you liked the animation I’m happy to say Rick and Morty‘s new season should be starting Sunday.

Death Stranding releases at midnight for the PS4. Its coming to the PC in 2020.

Gears 5 Title Update 2 Released November 7, 2019

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

A major title update with lots of bug fixes has just been released for Gears 5. You can check the entire list of patches and fixes here.

This is a much needed update due to the fact game stability in multiplayer has been an issue ever since launch. It’s also one of the big reasons I haven’t finished playing the game, the game would frequently ignore my player progress, even in the single player campaign. Microsoft and the Coalition have promised this will be accompanied by a server-side patch which will take place over the next few hours. If you happened to lose progress in multiplayer, you may not see your progress restored until after the server patch.

You might want to free up some system space for this update. For example, if you are using an Xbox One X and had the previous title update, the new one may require a download of over two GB.

Gears 5 is out now on PC and Xbox One.

iOS and iPadOS 13.2.2 Released November 7, 2019

A minor but VERY important update has just been released for the iPhone and iPad and I recommend all users who had version 13.2 installed to upgrade as soon as possible.

The new update comes with all the bug fixes and improvements that were included with 13.2, as well as the support for the new AirBuds, and fixes the issues that users were having with HomePod devices. No update is currently needed for the Apple TV, I’m assuming tvOS wasn’t affected by the HomePod bug.

If you already had 13.2 installed, the update shouldn’t weigh in at more than 60-80MB. You can install it right now using either your device’s software update option or iTunes.

The Making of Death Stranding November 6, 2019

We are days away from the release of the mysterious Death Stranding, a game directed by the creator of Metal Gear, Hideo Kojima. Hopes are high for this game and it’s previews have not yet revealed just how we will be expected to play this game.

Up until this point my favorite documentary looking inside of the work of Hideo Kojima was a forty minute documentary included in the MGS 4 Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray bonus disc. This video was produced by the BBC, and it has a really decent production quality. Hopefully in fifty years time this video won’t get deleted like the BBC deleted classic episodes of Doctor Who.

Death Stranding is coming November 8th to the PS4. Its coming to PC in 2020.

Mewtwo Codes for Pokemon Let’s Go Coming to Best Buy October 31, 2019

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

The Pokémon Pass app has revealed that the major electronics retailer Best Buy will be offering free mystery gift codes for the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo starting on November 4th. The Pokemon Company have very rarely offered mystery gifts for the Let’s Go games on the Switch and even though you can already obtain Mewtwo through normal means, many players can miss their only chance to capture him.

To obtain the Mewtwo Mystery Gift code, you need only visit a Best Buy retail store after November 4th and scan a special code on display in the store using the Pokémon Pass application. A similar event is going on as we speak at GameStop stores across the country. By visiting those stores and scanning their code before the 11th, you can earn a special Legendary code that could be redeemed in any GEN7 title.

I have to say that I’m very happy about the Pokémon Pass application despite the fact I’ve heard a lot of negative comments about it over the past few weeks. I’ve complained constantly last year that major retailers (other than GameStop and Toys R Us) have failed to competently promote free Pokémon promotions for as long as I could remember. By letting an application like Pokémon Pass take over for the role of an otherwise overworked and undertrained clerk, it saves Pokémon Trainers the hassle of asking random employees of major retailers questions the employee will likely be unable to comprehend. Yes you do need to create a free account on The Official Pokemon Website (your Pokémon TCG Online account will work!) and enable Pokémon Pass support in your account, but that is still less irritating than the former option.

Pokémon Pass is free to download right now on your Android or Apple device. Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee are out right now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

Death Stranding is shaping up to be one of the biggest PS4 exclusives this year. Directed by Hideo Kojima and starting Norman Reedus, it looks to carry on the tradition of games like Metal Gear Solid. I would tell you more but that might spoil the surprise.

Here’s the game’s official launch trailer edited by Hideo Kojima himself! Enjoy.

Death Stranding is coming to PS4 on October 8th, 2019. It is also coming to the PC in the future!
