Niantic set out to break down the barrier between purely handheld Pokemon gaming, and actually being able to train and battle, and capture Pokemon IRL, with their real world gaming platform Pokemon GO.

If these three images are any indication of what we might be able to expect from Pokemon GO and the platforms unique mobile location tech. / augmented reality gaming effectiveness; well then we are in for a mighty fine treat, indeed. 

Just like the game players can only catch certain wild Pokemon in certain native environments. You're not about to find a Wailord straight chillin' in a sandbox at your nearest park. And much like how the game works, you'll have to get those steps in to hatch any eggs you acquire.

I just can't wait for the battles to start up. Come at me bro. An early user field test hits Japan soon and there's no release date, so realistically it's probably time to cruise over there.

And just in case your juices were't already flowing, here is some footage from the SXSW Gaming Panel to give you a better look at Pokemon GO in action.

Watches video. Looks down at hands. Shakes head and disgustedly tosses controller...

No, but all kidding aside if players out there are willing to substitute pride and dignity and their GameCube controllers for wireless controllers, they'll be able to play with the Bidou technique. Granted, smash tourneys don't allow wireless controllers, but hey why not mess around with this during recess?

Bidou allows for players to near perfectly execute pivots/crouching pivots, sliding spot dodges, standing dash attacks, and sustain frame accuracy during wall jump attacks.

There have been some developments from Microsoft, since yesterday when we shared news of a woman winning $10,000 after suing the company for its 'shady upgrade system.'

Specifically, Microsoft told The Verge that it’s tinkered more with the upgrade prompt due to “feedback that some of our valued customers found it confusing.” The new prompt, coming out this week, will have “clear options to upgrade now, schedule a time, or decline the free offer.”



Your last chance for a free upgrade is July 29th, after that it'll cost you $119.
