Pokemon Go Update Confirms Ditto Now in Game

For the last few days all over various internet outlets various posters have claimed to find the as yet unseen in game Pokémon Ditto. Today in an update notice posted to their official site and Twitter page, the rumors have been proven to be true. According to the post, there is a chance after catching a Pokémon in the wild that it will be revealed to be the shape shifter Pokémon Ditto. If the Pokémon is used to fight at a Gym it will copy the appearance, type, and moves of the first Pokémon it sees.

Pokémon Go is free to download and play on both Android and iOS.

Would you buy an Android Update?….

In all seriousness: That picture. This guy over at Znet, Mr. James Kendrick, thinks that charging a “small fee” for Android OS updates is a way to fix the Android platforms fragmentation. I know this isn’t gaming related at all, but being a firm believer and user of the Android OS I have to state once again:

<—“THAT PICTURE”

With all the mobile OS’s out right now, why would Android, the only open-source OS charging it’s users be the best step? That is the worst idea imaginable. His answer to pirating these paid versions is just as “I can count to Potato!” worthy as well, Hey… just check their Google accounts to see if it says they paid!. Apparently he doesn’t realize the reason piracy is rampant is because people are smart. You think software developers just release their work without any security at all? No, pirates crack open the code and take out all those little checks to make it work. why would you not think that would happen here?

Charging customer for updates is the single worst “solution” to anything, what is going to fix Androids fragmentation is for Google to throw it’s weight around now. With… what, a Billion Android devices out there, Google can easily lay the law down and say. “Alright, now that you all bow at the idle of Green… we have some rules that need to be followed!” enforce stricter update cycle times for Carriers and Handset manufacturers to stick to in order to allow them to keep using Android. And yes, “Allow!” Android is Open Source, the don’t really pay shit for it.

Facebook on Live and PS3

image390862226.jpgOn Tuesday. xbox 360 owners recieved an update that added a few new additions to there 360. Twitter, Last.fm, Zune Marketplace. And Facebook.

Well, Today, if the update hasn’t rolled out already. Then a little later today, Playstation 3 owners will get at least one of those same things. Facebook

I called social network intergration earlier this year. Saying. “although not neccessary or entirely useable. I see it happening.”

Well. Here it is. How does everyone feel about it so far?

Borderlands = Epic Win

image1880068940.jpgWell well, look at this.

When the great Mirrors Edge and the even better Dead Space where released last year to slow, lukewarm sales and average reviews. It was speculated that original IP’s where unwanted. Even though the gaming community where buzzing and clamouring for these games. And new game in general. It’s nice to see that a good, original IP is making waves.

Gearbox, developer of Borderlands says that the new IP is the fastest selling new IP of 2009. While PC number haven’t been released. Console numbers for the game have broke the millions which is a nice start.

Gearbox has already said a sequel is a no brainer. They are also set to release “Zombie Island of Dr.Ned” is the coming weeks for PS3 and 360. And a PC release will follow after that. With at least one more DLC next year probably.

Super Street Fighter 4 brings back Car Fight!

image36055530.jpgOne of my favorite bonus stages of any game would have to be the car brawling and barrel fighting in Street Fighter 2. I was excited when the Car fight was brought back for 3rd Strike. And I’m really happy that it will make a return. With the Barrel bashing! To Super Street Fighter 4.

You better watch out you god damned barrels. !

I’m still not happy that it’s going to be a full disc release. That’s ridiculous.

Wii to start offering demos

image167592784.jpgYep. Nintendo, later this month. Will begin Making demos of some of it’s WiiWare titles as a test run.

Following Nintendo’s plummet from there ivory tower of year over year profit since the Wii and DS where first released. Nintendo will begin dipping into the 360 and PS3 pool a little more to try and refill the ink on there money printers.

360 dashboard update adds….

image1333693431.jpg…nothing!.. Well, ok. Not “Nothing”. The update released today updates the system with support for the Wireless-N adapter that will be released in the next month (the 3rd). That’s pretty much it. No Twitter or Facebook yet. That’s not coming until mid-November still.

The N Adapter is set to be priced at the ever so low price of 100 bucks. Which is about 50 bucks more than a 802n, DD-WRT compatible router off of Amazon. Which can then be used to run 3 other devices at N-draft speeds. (like your ps3 and Wii.)
