What even is Frog Fractions?

Unless you’re well-versed in long-running, cultish alternate reality games, you may not get why everyone’s so jazzed about Frog Fractions 2. But the sequel to the bizarro browser game Frog Fractions’s launch isn’t just the culmination of years of groundwork. More than that, it’s a reason to celebrate one of the weirdest games of recent memory — and finally try it out if you’ve never played it before.

Frog Fractions is a game better experienced than explained. That’s what those in the know will say when you, on the outside looking in, approach them about the cult hit. Developed by Jim Crawford of the one-man operation Twinbeard Studios, Frog Fractions arrived in 2012 to an audience who was none the wiser about its twists and turns. That’s the best way to go into it now, too.

A popular sighting that people have been tweeting about is the ability to import a Mass Effect 2 save file into Frog Fractions 2.

Pokémon Sun and Moon’s second global mission offers a chance at redemption

Another global mission is live in Pokémon Sun and Moon, and this one has a slightly less lofty goal than the first international contest. From now until Jan. 9, trainers have to use the Island Scan feature to find 1 million Pokémon collectively, or risk missing out on a nice bounty.

Island Scan, a tool which allows players to locate rare Pokémon across Alola, becomes available after using the QR Reader at least five times. (It specifically unlocks after amassing 100 points with the QR Reader; common Pokémon are worth 10 points, while special ones are worth 20.) After unlocking Island Scan, players can use it once per day to scout out local uncommon Pokémon.
