New SNES Classic Edition

If you have not heard let me tell you that Nintendo has done it again. Remember the Nintendo Classic? Well they will now be releasing the Super Nintendo Classic Edition. Unlike the predecessor this console will not have 30 games but 21. The games will include Super Metroid, Super Mario World, and the Legend of Zelda A Link to The Past, which all those 3 you should now have on your 3Ds. The console will be out on sale on September 29th for $79.99. This makes me think and hope that the next console may be N64! Check here for the full list of games.

Pokemon Raids Update

maxresdefault

After some days waiting and news circling around about the new enhanced Gyms, the new update has come out and well I can say I like it but there are some things I am not a fan of. The new alerts when there is a new Raid is cool, we can be walking in an area and get alerted of this Raid and we can walk towards that gym. There are 5 tiers of Raids with Pink Eggs the Level one Tier. Each tier will hold a certain Pokemon to be defeated, and of course as a higher Tier the tougher the Pokemon will be, the Pokemon that you can encounter will be different by Tier, they can range from Magikarp, Bayleef, Magmar, Arcanine, Charizard and Tyranitar, and more of course. Another addition to the Gyms that I like is the Poke-Stop spinner on top, I read that this was added for those that have less Pokestops in the area, so if you have a few Gyms you can head to them and spin the image above them and get free items.

How you defeat the Pokemon in the Raid is the same as a normal Gym battle, use a Pokemon that is strong against certain type of other Pokemon and done. When the Raid is completed you get a chance to capture that Pokemon. Tier 5 is what is kind of unknown right now, so far a list Pokemon has been released for Tier 1-4 but for Tier 5 people are speculating that this can be left alone for Ultra Rare Pokemon, like Mewtwo as seen in the promo video. Now what I don’t like personally is the level cap to start a Raid, Level 35. I mean if there are 5 Tiers (4 open at the moment) why make the level requirement so high? I am currently on level 21 only because I stopped playing due to the issues with the game. Looks like I have to catch up to enjoy the raids.

I think there are still things to be updated like Trading and a bit more enhancement to the game. I know those will come sooner than later, for the meantime lets enjoy what we have and have fun!

Alert Game Stop Credit Card Users!!

I know these are not actual gaming news but I think is good to share this kind of information in case someone that reads this may have been affected. As many of you know retailers have been a target of hackers and stealing customer’s information, we can say that no one is 100% safe from this. Recently GameStop announced that their customer’s information may have been stolen for those that wanted to place an online order on their website from August 1, 2016 and February 9th, 2017. If you are one of the users that attempted to order something only from GameStop please check your accounts, emails from GameStop have been sent out for those that may have been affected, but as mentioned, just in case some people don’t read emails then I hope this helps.

New Pokemon Go Events Coming Soon!

Is about to be a year since Pokémon Go launched, remember how it was said in that one E3 last year that the game was going to be launch in a week, everyone went nuts knowing the game they had been waiting for so long it was about to be launched. Several days later the game was launched in specific locations first, then it spread to everyone else. I remember when we first saw the launch video, trading, capturing Pokémon in the wild, battles, gyms and all that stuff, only to be received by an app that felt half way made. Well as time has passed we have seen new updates come to the game, new Pokémon from Gen 2, and more recently new events that give players more XP, candy and ability to capture specific kind of Pokémon on an specific date for a short period of time.

Well now we have heard that Pokémon Go since is closing to the year mark, will be having more special events, a couple of them Real-Live Events. Starting next week, we will be having what is called the Solstice Event, which will run next June the 13th, this even will allow you to capture more Fire and Ice Pokémon along with XP Bonus and discounted Lucky Eggs. As for the Real-Live Event, this will kick off on July 22nd, the Pokémon Go Fest Chicago will take place in…. Chicago. The tickets will go on sale June 19th, no pricing has been made available and no actual information on what is going to happen at the event. Other Real-Live events are planned to happen in Europe between July and September while in Japan will get an event called “Pikachu Outbreak” I am guessing by the name there will be a Pikachu heaven! I hope that with these new events they give us news soon about what is to be of the game, new Gym features, trades, and raids.
