Pokémon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl Glitch Is Renaming Monsters

The latest batch of Pokémon games, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, are experiencing a handful of silly glitches.

Destiny 2 Is Deleting Its Best Expansion

Destiny 2’s Forsaken expansion, a high-water mark for Bungie’s loot shooter, is going away next year with the launch of The Witch Queen, the studio announced today.

This 2004 Interview With The Creator Of Pokémon Is Full Of Details I Love

One of my favorite ways to relax in the evenings is to watch this Twitch channel that streams subtitled episodes of the Japanese TV series Game Center CX. If you’re not familiar with the show, most episodes focus on comedian Shinya Arino’s desperate struggles to beat old console games.

As promised, Polish developer Techland put out a video today updating the world on the state of zombie parkour thriller Dying Light 2. and it’s an extremely concise look at one of the most toxic cycles underlying the video game industry. In the first half of the roughly three-minute video, various Techland developers read expletive-filled comments from fans demanding the release of the game or at least proof that it still exists. “FUCK THIS BULLSHIT!!!

A Twitch Streamer Unearthed Cards From A Fake ’90s Pokémon Ripoff, And Fans Are Pretending The Series Was Real All Along [UPDATE]

There’s elaborate performance art, and then there’s what renowned Twitch jester Jerma did over the weekend. In a truly inspired stream, he parodied the recent Pokémon booster pack craze by going out into the Nevada desert and pretending to excavate a chest seemingly full of unopened Pokémon cards from 1997.
