Workaround for Pokémon Go anti-cheat update disappears as quickly as it’s discovered

After briefly finding a way to get around Pokémon Go’s latest punishment for hackers, some players are stuck with collections of “slashed” Pokémon. Pokémon obtained with unofficial programs are now designated with glaring red marks, something that is proving hard to remove. If you evolve a slashed Pokémon the slash disappears... pic.twitter.com/2D0bUfh1jd — jm (@clowncare11) June 21, 2017Reddit users also said that Pokémon caught with bots or spoofing programs didn’t show the slash if they evolv

Europe gets a way superior Metroid: Samus Returns special edition

Metroid fans have every reason to feel spurned by Nintendo time and again over the past half-decade, but the company’s treating Metroid: Samus Returns like a big deal. Comparing the sets hammers in how much this stinks for Metroid fans in North America, Japan or anywhere else. And then this is what the rest of the world gets:The rest of the world gets a soundtrack for the game. At least fans worldwide are getting a new adventure starring Samus Aran to play, fancy special edition or not. Samus Re

Game of Thrones finally gave Bran what he’s needed for six seasons

HBO released a new trailer for Game of Thrones’ seventh season yesterday and, while there’s quite a bit to take away from it, one of the best scenes features Bran Stark. When the Lannisters come to visit, accompanying Robert Baratheon to visit Ned Stark, Bran catches a moment of incest between Cersei and Jamie Lannister. In the new trailer, however, Bran finally gets a wheelchair, giving him a little more independence than he’s had in previous seasons. someone finally built a wheelchair for bran

An innocent lunch photo has led to a new theory about Iron Man in Avengers: Infinity War

When Robert Downey Jr., arguably Marvel Studios’ leading actor, tweeted an innocuous photo of him and a few friends hanging out and eating lunch on the set of Avengers: Infinity War, he probably didn’t expect it to lead to a new, big theory. When Iron Man 3 came out, writer Drew Pearce told SciFi Now that even though Stark would remove the arc reactor, he would still undeniably be Iron Man. “We take his arc reactor out, but I think we also make a pretty definite statement that he is Iron Man,” P

Paradox Interactive, the Swedish developer and publisher known for its strategy games, is scrambling to roll back recent price hikes on a number of titles internationally. “I have promised myself never to give in to mob mentality,” Wester wrote after spending a solid day reading through the company’s forums.
