leave a comment »

The next two games in the gaming giant franchise Pokemon were announced this morning.  Pokemon X and Pokemon Y will be coming out October 2013 worldwide for the 3DS, breaking some trends for Game Freak, the game’s developer, while continuing others.

For one, this will be the first round of Pokemon to have it’s international releases close together, something that is usually separated by at least a few months. Also, this round of games has finally broken the color streak of Pokemon game names, from Red and Blue to Black and White, Pokemon games have always had a color associated with them, but apparently no more.

However, some things never change. Players will have a choice to pick between three starter Pokemon – Froakie, Fennekin and Chespin, Water, Fire, and Grass-types respectively.

For a closer look at the recently announced games, check out the video above. Pokemon X and will only work on the 3DS, not any other type of DS, so looks like it’s finally time to grab one if you haven’t already.

leave a comment »

Rumors have been circulating for a  long time about a gaming console to come from gaming’s giant Valve, and now the rumors have been confirmed.

The ‘Steam Box,’ the unofficial title, will be announced at the Consumers Electronic Show in Las Vegas, which runs from January 8 to January 11. The company Xi3 has reported that they have received an investment from Valve and is developing the hardware which will ultimately run the Valve software, most likely a more specialized version of Valve’s already released ‘Big Picture’ mode for Steam.

The console will be housed in a chassis similar to that pictured above, which is about the size of a grapefruit and will be able to fit in the palm of your hand. More information will be revealed with the opening of the Consumers Electronic Show.
