  1. Ingress, Niantic's previous real-world mobile game, laid the foundation for the phenomenon that became Pokémon Go. Armed with a warchest filled with the success of Nintendo's foray into bringing Pokémon to life on Earth, their next stab at Ingress seems to be going all-out. The game has an anime series, live-action teasers, and seems to be doing everything it can to create a self-sustaining player base. Ingress Prime brings players into a secret war between the Enlightened and the Resistance, two groups with opposing views on how to use the mysterious resource known as XM. Coming from portals all across the world, XM seems to hold massive power and the potential to reshape humanity on a massive scale. Players travel to these real-world locations to gather the resources for their particular faction and complete mission. In the past, some of these missions could mobilize hundreds of people - Niantic seems to be hoping Ingress Prime will reach even larger numbers of players. Ingress Prime is currently available for mobile devices. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  3. Pokémon Go released in 2016 as part of a collaboration between Nintendo and Niantic Labs, a game developer that grew out of a Google initiative designed to explore the potential uses of the technology used to create Google Maps. The mobile phone game caused an unprecedented fervor in the general public, gaining a worldwide following in the hundreds of millions. Though plagued by technical issues at release, becoming the subject of criticism for the public behavior of the player base, and botching some high profile events, Pokémon Go continues to receive updates and has maintained a consistent base of support from around 65 million people. Given the sweeping social impact Pokémon Go had, would it be fair to call it one of the best games period? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative Outro music: Pokémon Silver 'Lucky Coin' by Schtiffles (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03476) Kevin Slackie can be found on Twitter @KSlackie talking about game design and meeting Ray Wise.

  5. On Nov. 19 Niantic challenged the trainers of the world. Catch 3 billion Pokémon in a week. The rewards included short-time access to the previously region-locked Farfetch'd (worldwide) and Kangaskhan (in East Asia) as well as other in-game buffs. Players succeeded in the lofty goal on Sunday, catching 3.36 billion. As an added bonus, Niantic announced a surprise perk today, legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh can now be found at Raid Battles at Gyms. Ho-Oh will only be catchable for a limited time until Tuesday, Dec. 12. The Global Catch Challenge, as it was formally called ran alongside a campaign called Pokémon GO Travel. In the video series, enlisted community stars explored various locations in Japan hunting for Pokémon while giving the global community daily updates on the challenge process. This challenge was the first of its kind, but it's not the first time that legendary Pokémon have been in the game. Like Ho-Oh, these Pokémon are only attainable through raid battles and can be caught during a limited time. Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Lugia were available earlier this year. Raikou, Entei and Suicune are currently available until Nov. 30 in rotating regions. Mewtwo is available through exclusive invite-only raids. Have you caught any legendary Pokémon? Did you participate in the Global Catch Challenge? Let us know in the comments below.

  8. Alongside the quick reveal of a major update to its gyms, and announcement for the Solstice Event, Pokémon GO also set the stage for their first ever live get together: Pokémon GO Fest. The celebration will commemorate the first anniversary for the mobile game and takes place July 22 at Grant Park in Chicago. At the event, attendees will be fully immersed in the augmented digital Pokémon world through day-of perks. These include an increase in Pokémon sightings "including some that have never been seen before in Grant Park." Also, there will be challenges banding trainers around the globe together, the ability to unlock an exclusive Pokémon GO Fest Chicago medal (in-app only), "special" PokéStops, and team lounges. Tickets went live on June 19 and sold out in less than an hour. Niantic assured that the unfortunate souls unable to attend "will still be able to participate in rewards unlocked at the event." Tickets went for $20 each, but many are being upsold for significantly more. Do you still play Pokémon GO? Were you lucky enough to get a ticket to the event?

  10. Pokémon Go may not dominate the public consciousness the way it once did, but that hasn't stopped Niantic from improving the game with updates. The company announced two big (and free) updates are heading to mobile title. Gyms are receiving a massive overhaul to make "ownership more collaborative" and encourage players to interact with their gyms in new ways. Prestige and training no longer dictate how Gyms operate. Players can instead store Pokémon in six permanent slots, with challengers battling a Gym's monsters in the order they were assigned. A new motivation system impacts a Pokémon's CP by lowering it with each defeat. However, friendly trainers can boost motivation by feeding defending Pokémon berries. The Gym's Photo Disc can now be spun to obtain items (just like with PokéStops) and Badges can be earned and leveled up by interacting with your team's Gym. Raid battles allow trainers to face powerful Pokémon in 20-player strong battles with raid bosses. These timed events temporarily take over Gyms, and defeating these bosses will reward valuable new items as well as the chance to capture the boss. Players will also be able to invite friends into private raid groups using a custom code system. Keep an eye for these changes to start rolling out in the coming weeks. You can read more about the updates on the Pokémon Go blog. If you haven't opened Pokémon Go in a while, are these changes enough to lure you back in? UPDATE: Raids in Pokémon Go have now fully rolled out and are available to all players at level 5 and above! View full article

  12. 2016 was a mind-blowing year in the world of games. VR, massive Kickstarter successes and failures, games that pushed the boundaries of what games can be, 2016 had it all. Jeremy, Daniel, and Jack bring their number one game of the year along with one honorable mention apiece. What games from the past year will be remembered as one of the best games period? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time.

  14. The Apple event today held an unexpected gaming surprise in the form of Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda, taking the stage. Miyamoto revealed that Mario games would be making their way to iOS in the near future, breaking Nintendo's mascot into the mobile gaming realm for the first time. The first title announced, Super Mario Run, was demonstrated live on stage. It features Mario traversing stages as players tap the screen to make him jump, collecting coins and avoiding obstacles within the stage's set time limit. The demo displayed at least six worlds for players to jump and jumble through. The iOS game also includes a multiplayer component. The mode, called Toad Rally, allows players to race one another through stages. Miyamoto stated that players can connect with one another from around the world. Miyamoto also stated that the app will sell for a fixed price and will not include microtransactions. No release date has been announced, but Miyamoto did reveal that players should expect Super Mario Run to release sometime this holiday season. This move by Nintendo follows closely on the heels of the smashing success of Miitomo, Nintendo's social app that became a mild sensation earlier this year, and Niantic's Pokémon Go, which generated an even larger sensation. Nintendo promised shortly after the resounding success of both apps that they would be looking more closely into mobile gaming for future investments. View full article

    Pokemon Go Events Coming!

    Hello Everyone! I wanted to give everyone a heads-up on some Pokemon Go events coming up in and around the OOgie stores in Western New York. The one with a solid date will be taking place next Thursday (August 4th) at the Eastern Hills Mall. I'm still looking for an exact time from the Mall, but it looks like evening. It should give us a chance to hand out recruitment materials while we participate. But that's just one of six. Most of the other stores are planning walks as well (the next one should be in Niagara Falls), so please keep an eye on the forums and I'll let everyone know when and where these are happening! If you're interested in helping with the Mall walk, please respond in this thread so we have a head count. Thanks! -Jamie

    Pokemon Go Meetup?

    Hey all, Would anyone be interested in a Pokemon Go meetup if I could arrange it with Maria Fareri's Children's Hospital? I'd like to make it into a guild event. Please let me know!
  24. Chances are you are either playing Pokémon Go or can’t seem to find people who aren’t playing Pokémon Go. People can’t seem to get enough Rattatas or Pidgeys. However, did you know that you can catch Pokémon while also helping your kids at the same time? If you’re playing Pokémon Go (which, let’s be real, you are), here are a few ways to play and benefit your local children’s hospital: Become a human billboard and wear your Extra Life t-shirt with pride while out hunting. You could also sport a Miracle Band (which you can snag for free). Use these as an ice breaker. “Why am I wearing this? Let me tell you a thing or two about Extra Life….” Drop off lures for the pediatric patients at your local children’s hospital. Kids in hospitals want to play Pokémon Go, too. Wait! Before you do this, ask. Make sure to communicate with the hospital’s security team and your local program director. While your intentions might be good, HIPPA and safety are extremely important factors to consider. If dropping off lures at the hospital isn’t an option, leave them at Dairy Queen locations on Thursday, July 28 for #MiracleTreatDay. When you meet new people around a gym or PokéStop, don’t be afraid to bring up Extra Life, invite them to a Guild meeting, or even your marathon event. Chances are Pokémon Go isn’t the only game they enjoy playing! Organize a PokéWalk with members of your community to raise awareness of Extra Life. The Albany Guild in New York recently organized a PokéWalk of their own and recruited — drumroll, please — 130 new Extra Lifers! If you are interested in organizing one at a park, be sure to talk with your local parks director to learn more about the rules and regulations of the particular area. Reach out to local businesses along your walking route, local PokéStops, or near your gyms. If they are already offering special deals for Pokémon Go players or seeing m more traffic from players, they might be more receptive to joining or supporting Extra Life in some way. Pokémon Go has brought people together in new and fascinating ways. What better way to enjoy the game than to bring Extra Life with you when you meet other people who are playing? Let’s get out there, have fun, and fight for the kids. View full article
