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.

What’s inside the cube?

Peter Molyneux, the mastermind behind the Fable franchise, announced today the release date for his newest game Curiosity. Molyneux quit Lionhead Studios after the newest Fable game, Fable: The Journey was released.

Since then, Molyneux has been focusing on his startup company, 22 Cans, and their first release is imminent.

Curiosity is coming to iOS and Android and will have players chip away at a black cube in the middle of a bare room. The main draw of the game is the mystery of what’s inside the cube. Players will be able to purchase DLC of higher quality chisels to, presumably, chip away at the cube in larger quantities. Only the player who chips away the last piece will be able to see what is inside.

Keep up to date at 22 cans Facebook page, or Peter Molyneux’s twitter.
