Bethesda  hosted a very late night press conference that lasted only 40 minutes. Bethesda is known for The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, but in the last few years have expanded into other series like Prey, Doom, Dishonored, and Woflenstein.

The short but succinct event continued to use the “Bethesdaland” theme to reveal new content for nearly every series and franchise, including Skyrim on Nintendo Switch, Dishonored 2 DLC, Elder Scrolls: Legends expansion, and a new paid mod system called Creation Club. Two new sequels were also announced: The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II: The New Order. All the announced games and content are coming later this year.

For the first time in years Ubisoft ditched their E3 host Aisha Tyler and stuck with CEO Yves Guillemot and some Ubisoft developers to show off their new stable of games. Ubisoft had one of the most exciting press conferences of E3 with many brand new announcements, including Skull and Bones, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and the shockingly fantastic trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2.  We also saw more South Park, Assassins’s Creed, Just Dance, a Steep expansion, and Far Cry 5.

Sony’s press conference was light on the sizzle and even lighter on the new games. We did get an announcement for a new Horizon: Zero Dawn expansion called The Frozen Wilds and Monster Hunter: World. Many of the games Sony showed during last year’s E3 have yet to come out. We got deeper looks into Detroit: Becoming Human, Spider-Man, and Days Gone. Sony had the largest VR presence, with several new games coming to PSVR.

Pokémon GO Fest and Solstice Event Celebrate One Year Anniversary

Posted by | Mobile, News | No Comments

We’re coming up to the one year anniversary of Pokémon GO, which has hit 750 million global downloads. Niantic will be celebrating with two events – one in-game and one in the real world.

The Solstice Event starts June 13. The in-game event will feature more Fire and Ice-type Pokémon as well as bigger XP bonuses for accurately thrown Poké Balls. The XP boosting Lucky Eggs will also be discounted in the in-game shop.

In preparation for an upcoming update that includes “collaborative group gameplay features,” Gyms will be temporarily disabled for a short period of time.

The real-world event is the Pokémon GO Fest, which will take place in Chicago, Illinois on July 22. Tickets will go on sale on June 19 at 10:00 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern. Actual details of the event should be announced before that time as well.

Japan is getting a “Pikachu Outbreak” event in August. European trainers are getting a Pokémon GO Event across the continent from June to September in partnership with a shopping center. Details and schedules for these events are still forthcoming.

Pokémon GO initially launched on July 6, 2016. It had a rocky launch full of server issues and bugs. Despite its near constant problems, Pokémon GO enjoyed a level of widespread mainstream success far beyond most video games. The combination of capturing Pokémon and an AR camera resonated with millions of people around the world.

In the year since Pokémon GO has provided updates and seasonal events. Earlier this year it finally added Gen 2 Pokémon. Some core features, such as trading, still aren’t available, however.
