Posted by | News, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

If you’ve been wondering what the Skylanders developers, Toys for Bob, have been up to, here you go. Activision Blizzard and Toys for Bob have announced the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, containing HD remasters for the original trilogy of Spyro games. It’s coming September 21 to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“We’re deeply passionate about staying true to the legacy of the original three Spyro games with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy,” said Paul Yan, Chief Creative Officer, at Toys For Bob. “We’ve poured a lot of love into making the personalities and worlds feel just like fans remember them, while also keeping the game collection surprisingly fresh with lush, high definition detail. We’re bringing back the Spyro we all fell in love with 20 years ago.”

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy includes over 100 levels with improved environments, controls, graphics, and cinematics. Each level has been faithfully rebuilt from the ground up, but with modern technology and improvements.

As an added bonus, the original voice actor for Spyro, Tom Kenny, will reprise his role in the Reignited Trilogy.

The original trilogy of Spyro games released in 1998-2000 on the PlayStation, making this year the 20th anniversary of the franchise. They were well-received 3D platformers during the Golden Age of the genre. The series continued into the next console generation as well as on handhelds.

Spyro then acted as the ambassador (and blueprint) for the Skylanders series, beginning with Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure in 2011. The character maintains a starring role in the Netflix animated Skylanders Academy series as well.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy launches September 21 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It has not yet been rated, but all previous Spyro and Skylanders games were rated E for Everyone.

Big Pokémon GO Update Adds Quest-like Field Research

Posted by | Mobile, News | One Comment

A new objective-based quest system is coming to Pokémon GO. Starting March 30 trainers will be able to conduct Field Research by picking up objectives from PokéStops, while Professor Willow will show up to present Special Research, leading to the discovery of Mythical Pokémon Mew.

Field Research is gained from spinning PokéStops. Players will receive objectives, such as capturing certain types of Pokémon, or winning a certain amount of battles. There are no limits to how many research tasks can be completed in a day, and more difficult tasks grant better rewards, including items.

Completing Field Research tasks rewards up to one stamp per day. Collecting seven stamps will unlock a Research Breakthrough, which is a special reward that grants even more items, as well as a Pokémon encounter. This encounter could even be a Legendary Pokémon.

Special Research are more long-term tasks given by Professor Willow. These works similarly to Field Research, but may be leading to the discovery of the newly added Mythical Pokémon, Mew.

Pokémon GO is curently in the midst of celebrating the Spring-themed Eggstravaganza event. Until April 2, trainers will only find 2 km eggs, but these eggs will include Pokémon from the larger 5 and 10 km eggs, letting them hatch much faster. Hatched eggs will provide bonus Candy and double the Stardust as well.

Research tasks will be added March 30. The Eggstravangza event ends April 2.
