Sega Says Goodbye To Historic Old Headquarters

This month, Sega is moving its Japanese headquarters for the first time in decades, leaving behind their Tokyo office near Otorii station and moving north to Osaki, Tokyo. The new building has Sega Sammy branding over it, rather than the classic Sega logo on the older building, the land for which Sega sold for the equivalent of $47 million dollars.

The building is said to be torn down.

Yuji Naka, former Sega developer and head of Sonic team, tweeted wistfully from the front of the building about his old place of employment with his kids in tow.

New Overwatch Hero Baptiste Revealed

Blizzard has abruptly revealed the newest hero for Overwatch, teased recently in a lore release a few days ago. Baptiste, the battle medic, appears to be medic who believes in healing for some and bullets for others.

You can check out Baptiste's backstory trailer below.

There's no other real information on the character so far, but it does mean that Lucio is no longer the only male support character, so that's certainly growing the roster.

Smeargle Is In Pokémon Go And Is A Little Harder To Catch Than Others

Smeargle Is In Pokémon Go And Is A Little Harder To Catch Than Others

Smeargle, the painting Pokémon, has been introduced into the realm of mobile augmented reality title Pokémon Go. But unlike every other Pokémon in the game, where you meet them during events or finding them on the map and throwing pokéballs at the Pokémon you were lucky enough to find in your area. Not so much for Smeargle.

To catch Smeargle, you need to use Pokémon Go's recently released snapshot feature, which lets you take pictures of the various Pokémon you have in your possession. When you're taking photos of your Pokémon, occasionally Smeargle will appear in the corners or blocking your shots by way of photobomb. When you exit the camera mode, Smeargle will just be on the map for you to battle and catch.

Don't worry, amateur photographers, you will also get a Smeargle-free version of your photo without its intrusion.
