Pokemon Go Plus or PokeBall Plus – What Should You Buy January 7, 2020

Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have announced the year’s first Pokemon Direct video will broadcast on Wednesday at 9:30am EST. That leaves me little time to give my thoughts about which currently available Pokémon Go accessory you should buy!

After Pokémon Go launched, Nintendo released a companion Bluetooth accessory called the Pokémon Go Plus which allowed players to make use of certain Pokémon Go features without having to actively run the app on their device 24/7 without putting it into standby. It cost $35US and uses a 2032 battery. A year ago, Nintendo released a new Pokémon accessory, the PokéBall Plus. It has a price of $50US and functions as a Nintendo Switch Controller (but only for Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee), a PokéWalker, and a Pokémon Go Plus.

What should you buy? Watch below and find out.

If you’d like to see more information about the Nintendo Switch functionality with Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, you can watch it here.

Pokémon Go is still free to download right now for compatible Android and Apple Smartphones and Tablets.

We love the PlayStation VR headset very much but we weren’t happy with the audio headphones that came with it. Thankfully the GEN 2 PSVR has a standard headphone jack that can support any wired headset plugged into it. After scouring the Internet for headsets that would comfortably fit over the PSVR I found the perfect headphones to complement the VR headset, the Sony PlayStation Gold.

We are going Let’s take a look and see what’s inside!

We might do a review of how this works in the future.

I Got a Free Stadia December 18, 2019

Just wanted to follow up with a off the cuff comment I made during my review of The Game Awards 2019. In that review, I mentioned I might or might not have gotten a free Google Stadia for attending that event. Turns out I did.

I didn’t know for certain if I had actually gotten a Stadia due to the fact that the units themselves were not being passed out at the event. Instead, we were given credits to receive them for no charge. I was unsure if I wanted to really make an announcement like “I got a free Stadia” unless I actually had the unit in my hand. Well, I got a free Stadia.

The Google Stadia Founder’s Pack consists of a Chromecast Ultra (capable of 4K streaming), three months of 4K streaming support for Stadia games, and a Stadia Controller capable of connecting to Chromecast over WiFi or a PC over provided USB cable.

Stadia content will be coming to the site soon. As for what that content will be, we currently have a few ideas in mind but post a comment below with all of your own.

We are less than a week away from the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield on the Nintendo Switch and we decided the time was finally right to do a new how-to video about Pokémon.

The Poké Ball Plus released almost a year ago and is the exclusive controller option for Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. However, most users may not be aware of all the functionality the controller actually has. Here’s a quick rundown of some features you can use right now.

Not enough for you? From what we’ve been told, the Poké Ball Plus will be compatible with Pokémon Sword and Shield when those games launch.

Pokémon Go is out now for Android and iOS devices. Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee and Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu are out now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

It has been no secret to most long term visitors to this site we are super fans of Bawls high-caffeinated soda. It has been a staple of LAN parties everywhere for nearly two decades. Earlier this year, the company announced a new flavor was being added to their soda lineup, Cherry Cola.

Bawls was nice enough to provide us a case of their soda for this review. What do you say we try it? Just be aware we are going to say Bawls a lot…

Stay tuned we might be doing more game streaming this week with our supply of Bawls at our side!
