Dangerous Golf was recently patched to increase the frame rate and reduce loading times. After a few rounds, I can confirm it’s an improvement! Unfortunately, the rest of the game is still pretty mediocre—it’s no crash mode from Burnout—and a patch is unlikely to fix that.

Overwatch's D.Va Is So Good Now

Kotaku - Mon, 07/25/2016 - 19:00

Last week Overwatch got a big update with a new character and a bunch of balance tweaks. The new sniper Ana got a lot of attention, but some of the less obvious tweaks are just as big a deal. Chief among them: A remarkably involved buff to the mech-driving pro gamer D.Va, which has transformed her into the high-flying terror I’ve always wanted her to be.

Pokémon GO wird weitere Pokémon und neue Funktionen erhalten

Filb.de (German Pokemon Fan-site) - Mon, 07/25/2016 - 18:44

Auf der Comic-Con in San Diego wurden neue Informationen zum zukünftigen Umfang von Pokémon GO bekannt gegeben.

Wie IGN berichtet, werden die drei Teamleiter, die gestern enthüllt wurden, den Spielern später einmal wertvolle Hinweise geben. Niantic will Pokémon GO über Monate und Jahre vorantreiben und das Spiel mit neuen Pokémon und neuen Features am Leben erhalten. So soll auch die in einem frühen Trailer bereits versprochene Tauschfunktion definitiv noch kommen. PokéStops sollen in Zukunft noch weiter individuell angepasst werden können, z. B. mit Hilfe eines Items, das die Funktionalität eines PokéStops verändern kann. Auch Pokémon Center waren im Gespräch, auch wenn es hierzu keine genaueren Details gibt.

Jedoch sollte man laut Niantic seine Erwartungen derzeit noch zügeln, denn höchste Priorität habe neben der weltweiten Veröffentlichung erst einmal das Beheben von Fehlern, die das derzeitige Spielerlebnis beeinträchtigen. Angeblich sind bisher jedoch nur zehn Prozent aller Ideen der Entwickler in das fertige Spiel eingeflossen.

Weiterhin war von Easter Eggs die Rede, also kleinen Spielereien oder Tricks, die nicht offiziell enthüllt werden und nur darauf warten, von den Spielern gefunden zu werden. Es soll noch einige Dinge in Pokémon GO geben, die bisher noch kein Spieler entdeckt zu haben scheint.
