A recent data mine of Pokémon GO!'s coding revealed a picture of the iconic, Master Ball.

Before we all get too excited, you've gotta wonder whether there'll be any downsides to the Master Ball in this game? -- will an errant curveball toss end up wasting the Master Ball altogether? I guess we better take a page out this dude's book, and opt for the safest, most surefire way to achieve success, and catch 'em all...

The video above shows a newly announced realm called "The Hollow," in which players bring the world to life by performing songs to add color, light, and characters to the scene. Disney also announced a cooperative multiplayer mode and a set of tracks that will appear in the game that might make or break it for you:

David Bowie - "Ziggy Stardust"
Antonin Dvorak - "Symphony No. 9 from the New World"
Lorde – "Royals"
Nicki Minaj - "Super Bass"
White Stripes - "Seven Nation Army"

I don't know about you, but I'm not sure I want to light up the world of Fantasia to Nicki Minaj. Are you excited for Fantasia: Music Evolved?

According to Finnish newspaper Kaleva, Lizard Squad member Julius “zeekill” Kivimaki has been convicted of 50,700 computer crime charges including data breaches, felony payment fraud, and telecommunication harassments in relation to his work with the group of hackers. Lizard Squad claims responsibility for last year's Sony PSN and Microsoft's Xbox Live DDOS attacks. He has also performed acts of SWATting, and harassed people by leaking their personal information and destroying their finances. Kivimaki, who is 17, has been given a two year suspended sentence and will have his internet activity monitored by authorities. 

In Finland, a suspended sentence delays a person's imprisonment while placing them on probation. At the end of the probationary period, if that person has not committed a crime, they may not be subject to imprisonment. Kivimaki's age is likely a factor in his sentence, though many feel the sentence is entirely too light for his crimes.

Daybreak CEO John Smedley, who was a victim of Kivimaki, had some choice words for the hacker on Twitter:



You tell him, Smedley! What do you think, should Kivimaki face jail time for his cyber crimes?

Game looks solid though, and a good choice for the trailer song. But really, this comment right here sums up how I feel about the trailer as a whole:

Microsoft held an imaginatively-named Windows 10 Devices event in New York Oct. 6. While they showed off some impressive new phones, a new Surface and a new Surface laptop, we were most interested in seeing new Hololens stuff.

We were super-impressed with the E3 Minecraft demo and have been salivating for more mind blowingness from the augmented reality helmet.

During today's event, they introduced Project X Ray and for the first time, let us see a wearable 'hologram'.



That's when the robots started bursting through the walls.



As with the Minecraft demo, we find this type of interactivity with the surrounding environment super fascinating.

Unfortunately, it's going to come at a price.

Microsoft set a developer kit price at $3,000, shipping in the first quarter of next year.

Time to start saving pennies.
