The mobile game that is taking the world by storm is now available in Canada. Canadian gamers can now “catch ’em all” as Pokemon GO has hit their mobile app store. Pokemon Go has literally transformed the way how people play on mobile and has been downloaded by a TON of people (which is an understatement). Canadian gamers will no doubt experience some server issues as everyone in the county will be downloading the popular mobile game. Keep at it though as the title is pretty unique and is very fun to play.

Enjoy! Have you been playing Pokemon Go?!

NO MAN’S SKY – EXPLORE TRAILER

Your Universe Awaits my friends in the PS4 exclusive, No Man’s Sky.

There are 18 quintillion planets in the game. Even if each planet was visited at a rate of one per second, it would take five billion years to explore them all – by which the Sun in our solar system would have burnt out, essentially giving the game a near infinite number of worlds to explore!

No Man’s Sky has always caught my attention but I have always wondered if the game would be too expansive to truly enjoy. I hope that this one turns out nice as it seems to be very intriguing….I am just not completely sold on it.

What do you guys think?

Pokemon Go Sales Update: 7.5 MILLION People Are Playing

q-100

Pokemon Go is big. I could actually end this article there and it would be enough for this entire story. Pokemon Go is currently being played by over 7.5 MILLION people and it hasn’t even been out for a week. The game skyrocketed to the top of the app store charts and has already become the #1 grossing title as well. The game is so big it has caused Nintendo’s stock to go up in price by a staggering 25%. EVERYONE is playing Pokemon Go and it has only begun. In addition to these crazy downloads, Sensor Tower estimates that Pokémon Go is generating $1.6 million in revenue from iOS in the U.S. alone (this number doesn’t count Android sales).

The reason you keep bumping into other Pokémon Go players is because millions of people are trying to catch ’em all.

Approximately 7.5 million iOS and Android owners have downloaded Pokémon Go in the United States since Wednesday, according to app-market intelligence firm Sensor Tower. The rush to download it (and spend money on it) has pushed Nintendo’s stock up 25 percent on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The location-based augmented reality game puts digital pocket monsters into your real world using GPS data, which requires you to get out of the house and go walking to get the most from the mechanics. It is only out in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand — and it is coming to Europe and Asia in the next few days, according to The Pokémon Company. But while the rest of the world waits, Poké-trainers that do have access to the app have made it the No. 1 game in terms of downloads and revenues in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. Mobile gaming is a $36.9 billion business, but something like Pokémon Go could fuel further growth as it attracts different people to its appealing brand and different style of gameplay.

In addition to the downloads, Sensor Tower estimates that Pokémon Go is generating $1.6 million in revenue from iOS in the U.S. alone. That doesn’t even include Android. When you look at all three active territories and all platforms, the number is huge.

“Pokémon Go as so far managed to generate $14.04 million across mobile platforms since its release,” SuperData Research analyst Joost van Dreunen said in a statement. “[This puts] it ahead of other titles using the franchise, including Pokémon Shuffle Mobile which has earned an estimated $14.03 million since its release in August 2015.”

MORE GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE FOR WORLD OF FINAL FANTASY

Does anyone else think World of Final Fantasy looks insanely gorgeous? I am very intrigued but this game and I am excited to hear and see more every time something pops up. World of Final Fantasy was first introduced last year and I instantly was hooked by its art style and direction. I know I read that some people hate the “chibi-style” but I think it looks pretty sweet. Even though the video is in Japanese, it still should give you an idea on how combat will work.

Looks interesting to me…
