    They say a rising tide lifts all boats, right? Heritage Auctions did a little digging and discovered that way more Pokémon cards were being sold on eBay in the weeks after the Pokémon Go craze started.

    Super Mario Run Will Hop Onto iOS on December 15

    When Nintendo made a surprise appearance at the iPhone 7 launch to reveal Super Mario Run, they weren’t ready to say when the game would be released and were clear that the game would rely on an up-front price instead of microtransactions. But, they did promise to deliver before the end of the year, and they’re making […]

    HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

    Click clack, click clack — the sounds a mechanical keyboard makes when you type on one. Typing on a mechanical keyboard is similar to typing on a typewriter, and the feelings your fingers get to experience is simply exquisite. The Alloy FPS mechanical keyboard created by HyperX is nothing short of phenomenal. The Alloy FPS was […]

    Super Mario Run for iOS Will Have a Free Trial, With a Fee to Unlock the Whole Game

    When Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto made a surprise appearance at the iPhone 7 launch, he revealed Nintendo’s biggest foray into smartphone gaming yet with Super Mario Run. It won’t be Nintendo’s first smartphone app — that was Miitomo (Nintendo was financially involved in, but did not make, Pokémon Go) — but it’ll probably become their most downloaded and played for some time to […]

    Gears of War 4 Multiplayer Review

    Earlier this month, we took a look at the campaign of Gears of War 4 and found a faithful and enjoyable return to the third-person cover-based shooter series — lots of chainsaws, lots of exploding enemies of subterranean origin, and lots of hiding behind concrete blocks. Like with any game today, it’s tough to review multiplayer before those […]

    Pokémon Go Stages a Comeback With Halloween Festivities

    When last we checked in with Pokémon Go, player numbers weren’t looking too hot. And, from the lack of stampede reports and decline in crowding of our cities’ parks, it appears that things haven’t gotten much better. If nothing else, alarm bells should have gone off when the nation’s cafes got rid of their team-affiliated […]

    After a five-year layoff, the chainsaw-ripping Gears of War series is making a return to the Xbox, with a little side trip to the PC thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere. The third-person cover-based shooter jumps forward a little further in the in-game world, taking place 25 years after the end of Gears of War 3, when Marcus Fenix […]

    SteelSeries Launches Arctis Gaming Headsets With Sleek Design and Bi-Directional Microphones

    For a good while, we stayed away from gaming peripherals because they were ostentatious. For whatever reason, the powers that be decided blaring red and jagged edges embodied gaming, and the whole market just went with it. We’re actually pretty far removed from those days, with LucidSound and Tesoro being two of many examples of companies […]

    Forza Horizon 3 Review (Xbox Play Anywhere)

    Have you ever watched a trailer for a game and wondered if the amazing graphics were a cut scene or actual gameplay? This is a question that you will not be asking yourself when you play Forza Horizon 3.

The 1.11 update is expected to go live sometime this week, and Mojang talked a little about what players can expect at Minecon, which took place in Anaheim over the weekend.
