Pokémon Go Adds AR+ Feature

Pokémon Go Adds AR+ Feature

Pokémon Go has added AR functionality for anyone running iOS 11 on iPhone 6s, fifth-gen iPads, and all iPad Pro models.

AR+ is activated in encounter mode, and it more accurately positions Pokémon, scales their size to the environment, and changes it and their perspective in relation to trainers.

This awareness to the trainer extends to one of the gameplay features of AR+ – Pokémon are aware of a trainer's proximity and may flee if they approach too quickly. However, you get a special capture bonus if you snare them, and you can also get a new Expert Handler bonus for more XP and Stardust.

The 2005 PlayStation 3 Killzone Demo Was Not Development Footage, Guerrilla Games Confirms

A core battle of the PlayStation 3 generation's console wars, the 2005 trailer of Killzone 3, has finally been confirmed as a concept trailer not representative of the game.

NoClip, a Kickstarter- and Patreon-backed studio that focuses on bringing behind-the-scenes looks to tell the stories of games, released their documentary on Horizon: Zero Dawn. As part of telling the story of the game's development, NoClip looks back at the evolution of the studio, which includes the 2005 PlayStation 3 reveal of the first trailer of Killzone 2.

Guerrilla's executive producer Angie Smets explains that the CG trailer was their vision for what they wanted Killzone 2 to look like, after initial planning for the game had it set for the PlayStation 2. After waiting a few months for their devkits, the team watched the E3 stage show intended to be Sony's coming out party for the PlayStation 3. Sony's now-CEO Kazuo Hirai introduced a segment where he said Sony had asked partners for footage.

World's Largest Mod Site Hopes To Start Paying Mod Creators

Nexus Mods, the largest site in the world for all sorts of game mods, has announced a plan to start paying mod creators for popular mods.

The system, which is detailed in this blog post, is a little convoluted at first. A donation pool set up by the owners with both Nexus owner and crowd-sourced donations will begin every month and then unique mod download numbers will be paid out proportionally. The system is created as a reaction to criticism of Bethesda's paid mods initiative and wanting to keep payment fair.

The donation point system is opt-in and only includes mod authors who want to take part. Even those who participate can still keep donation links up. The post mentions that no one will be able to quit their job from this payment, but it can help subsidize the cost of the mod work or buy a few extra beers a month.

New Fist Of The North Star Yakuza Trailer Shows Kenshiro Using His Words

A new trailer for Fist of the North Star Yakuza (Hokuto ga Gotoku, or Like A North Star, a play on Yakuza's Japanese title of Ryu ga Gotoku, or Like A Dragon) shows off cinematics, fighting, and...cabaret club management?

The trailer, which Sega released on a livestream earlier today, shows Kenshiro in Eden, a flourishing entertainment district. The game is most ways a Yakuza game, to the point where Kiryu's voice actor plays Kenshiro and DLC will allow players to just straight up replace Kenshiro with Kiryu.

In the new trailer, Kenshiro can take the captions from enemy death rattles and special move screams, wielding them as weapons or crushing them to turn them into items. He can also use his patented Pressure Point Punches by pressing circle with perfect timing during combos, causing enemies to explode in bloody messes.
