John Hanke, the CEO of Niantic, sat down with VentureBeat to talk about Pokémon Go, and revealed a few new facts that'll get you excited for the game his team is developing with The Pokémon Company.

For starters, Hanke promises the game will be fun even if you don't live in a big city: "If we’re going to build a game that works with location, it has to be fun for people anywhere to play, in small towns as well as San Francisco. If we designed something that only worked in San Francisco, it wouldn’t be a real success. We wanted it to work globally." If you're just passing through a location, you'll still be able to interact with it without fully engaging that place.

Hanke also revealed that the game will feature gyms, as well as loads and loads of wild Pokémon. The goal is to ensure that you'll run into at least one Pokémon within five minutes of leaving your house. I don't know about you, but I'm assuming that means Rattatas everywhere. Rarer Pokémon will obviously be harder to find, and all Pokémon will be location/environment specific, meaning you'll only find water types near water.

But if you're landlocked, fear not; you'll be able to attend events to not only battle, but also trade Pokémon with other players. Even more exciting, you'll be able to join teams. According to Hinke, "there will be teams to join in Pokémon, more than two. Those teams will compete against one another."

Fight me IRL (whenever this game comes out), bros.

The official Bandai Namco US Twitter account dropped a casual hint to some kind of mysterious game the company is set to announce on Monday.

The mysterious link in their tweet leads to a mysterious website that features a countdown timer, and occasionally, hints about the project.

So far those hints have included "can you feel the hunger," "the architecture resonates among the weak," "there's no way out," and "the garden of life will blossom in the sky."

There are a lot of theories floating around about what the game could be, but so far the game that's looking most promising is God Eater.


(Aw vnx)

If you missed out on playing PT when it was available, now's your chance to get your hands on the canceled project's demo. Follow a detailed guide here, but know that it's not exactly legal to do. Sony prohibits the use of third party/sharing apps, but your risk of being banned is pretty low.

Japan's Nikkei Newspaper is reporting that Hideo Kojima's days at Konami are finally done, so we can all be free from the emotional roller coaster that has been rumors of his departure from the game company.

After countless reports of mistreatment, weird branding moves that minimized Kojima's involvement in his own series, and that one time Konami tried to pretend he was just on vacation, it looks like Kojima's really left Konami, and he's starting his own company!

From Nikkei, translated by NeoGAF user Zefah:

Kojima Hideo, a famous video game creator known for the Metal Gear series has left Konami Digital Entertainment as of December 15th. He will form a new company where he will continue developing video games, with plans to release on platforms such as Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE)'s PlayStation. He is forming the new company with people who worked under him at Konami. The rights to the Metal Gear series, for which he is most known, remain at Konami, so he will begin working on an all new title. Final negotiations with SCE are underway for this new game to debut on PlayStation.


I for one can't wait to see what he does with a new series. What about you?

Surely you remember "the dress" from earlier this year? You know, the one that nobody could figure out the color of: white and gold or blue and black?!

Newly released Just Cause 3 is full of easter eggs, and this one is particularly meme-y. In a rooftop apartment in Citate Di Rivello, you can find two women wearing white & gold and blue & black dresses, because, you know, memes.
