Pokémon GO updated again with minor bug fixes

Posted on August 8, 2016 by Jason Nason

Niantic announced today that mobile game sensation Pokémon GO has been updated to version 0.33.0 for Android and 1.3.0 for iOS devices.

Below are some release notes and comments from the development team.

  • Added a dialog to remind Trainers that they should not play while traveling above a certain speed.
  • Trainers must confirm they are not driving in order to continue playing.
  • Made improvements to the accuracy of a curveball throw
  • Fixed a bug that prevented ”Nice,” ”Great,” and “Excellent” Poké Ball throws from awarding the appropriate XP bonuses.
  • Fixed achievements showing incorrect Medal icons.
  • Enabled the ability for Trainers to change their nickname one time. Please choose your new nickname wisely.
  • Resolved issues with the battery saver mode on iOS and re-enabled the feature.
  • Added visuals of Team Leaders Candela, Blanche, and Spark.
  • Currently testing a variation of the “Nearby Pokémon” feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
  • Minor text fixes

I haven’t taken the app out for a GO since the update, but just a quick look inside the app after the update doesn’t show a lot of cosmetic difference, with the notable exception that the “nearby Pokémon” screen now shows a bit of grass behind the character.

We’ll let you know more as we experience the update.

Blanc + Neptune Vs Zombies & Trillion God of Destruction Coming To Steam

Posted on August 8, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Idea Factory International’s two most recent PlayStation Vita releases, Megatagmension: Blanc + Neptune VS. Zombies and Trillion: God of Destruction receive a bump up to 1080p as they head to PC this Fall.

Blanc + Neptune Vs. Zombie is a spin-off game from the main Hyperdimension Neptunia series that sees regular protagonist Neptune partner with Blanc & Co to take on Zombies while trying to save GamesIndustrie academy from being closed down due to low attendance while also producing a film that also happens to include the undead. This mixture of the series’ signature humor, real-time battles and a high school twist on the existing Neptunia formula makes Blanc + Neptune Vs. Zombies one class that you will want to enroll in this semester.

Trillion God of Destruction’s setting takes place a thousand years after a mythical battle that took place among the heavens. In the present day. demons remained in the underworld but things were quite peaceful until the powerful demon god, the titular Trillion appeared with a thirst to conquer not only the underworld but the entire world.


In this strategy RPG players will have to perform their best training montage while Trillion God of Destruction sleeps because they’re going to need to hone their strategic skills to eliminate his 1,000,000,000,000 HP! Along the way, players will be able to recruit six Overlord Candidates to lead the armies against Trillion. Should you lose in your quest against such a daunting foe, stats carry over through multiple playthrough thanks to Trillion‘s New Game+ mode.

Special bundles for both Blanc+Neptunia Vs Zombies and Trillion God of Destruction will be available at launch. As soon as we havbe more details about the launch date for these two games on Steam we will let you know.
