Check out these amazing realisations of “Kanto in real life.”

If you are a fan of the Pokémon games, these beautiful pieces of art will take you on a journey through Kanto, and remind you of how epic that first pair of games really were. Starting in the iconic Pallet Town, digital artist and game developer, Simone Maendl has been working her way through the region where the series began. Using inspiration from the real world, Simone is building a version of Kanto that is more believable than any shown before, in my opinion. Looking at this artwork takes me back to a childhood walking along rivers, imagining there were Pokemon everywhere, and I love that. You can follow the rest of the journey on Simone’s Instagram: @simonemaendl.

After that, it was the 45-minute car trip home, but back then we had the manual to keep us ticking over, long gone are those days. So, my question to you is what do you do while waiting for your games to update? Continue reading “What do you do while the game you are waiting to play updates?​”

In the wee hours of​ the morning, Pokémon fans got a big helping of new stuff to be excited about – here’s a round-up.

Last night I stayed up late to watch this press event, realised it was probably in Japanese and decided to just follow along on Twitter instead. Then my internet gave up so I couldn’t write about it. Basically, I wasted sleeping time, which I’m not overly happy about. What I am so glad about is all this new Pokémon news!

IOI now have complete ownership and creative control over the Hitman IP. This is great news for fans of big, bald Agent 47

There was much fear in gamers worldwide when Square Enix decided to part ways with IO Interactive. Who would be left with the rights to Hitman, and where would this leave the critically acclaimed and beloved latest release in the series? A second season was expected for the episodically released game, and it came as a shock to many, myself included, when Square Enix severed ties with the Danish developer.
