Groudon Now Appearing In Pokémon Go Raids

The legendary Ground-type Pokémon Groudon is now appearing in Pokémon Go Raids around the world.

Groudon was the legendary of Pokémon Ruby, the Hoenn region, and was part of Team Magma's plan to destroy the ocean and make the planet entirely land. It wasn't a super well thought out plan.

Like most Raid Legendaries, Groudon is only available for a limited time. You can start catching him now, but he's only available until 1:00 PM PST/3:00 PM EST on January 15, 2018.

Weekend Warrior – The Christmas Countdown

It's almost Christmas, guess we better get those presents wra – who are we kidding, we'll be repeatedly watching Star Wars all weekend!! Let us know what you're up to in the comments below.

Javy Gwaltney (@Hurdyiv) – I'm going to see some stars duke it out on the big screen and then spend a good chunk of my weekend trying to get that chicken dinner.

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – I’m hoping to finish Hollow Knight this weekend. It’s a big, challenging game, but the end appears to be in sight. I’ll also see Star Wars, but I bet I’ll be seeing Fernidand first. Hopefully the two are equally entertaining. Otherwise, it’s house-cleaning time to make way for the parents-in-law!

Eidos-Montréal, Developers Of Deus Ex, Switching Focus To Online Titles

Eidos-Montréal, the studio behind the Tomb Raider reboot and the modern Deus Ex franchise, released a statement on their website announcing a change in focus to online play.

Announced today, studio head David Anfossi released a new vision statement for the Canadian studio. Anfossi wrote "At Eidos-Montréal, we’re constantly working towards creating innovative and exciting experiences for gamers everywhere. In turn, we are placing an added emphasis on the online experiences in our games, striving to continually provide players with content that is memorable and impactful. Through the inherent interactivity of online play, our universes will have the chance to thrive both now and into the future. To achieve this, we are building the teams and tools capable of supporting our ambitions."

This change comes as a shock from the Square-Enix studio who had only recently released Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Shortly after that game's release, Square-Enix and Eidos-Montréal announced that the studio was partnering with Marvel to create multiple video games based on the Avengers.
