There’s still several months before the general Pokemon Sword and Shield release window arrives, but Nintendo is already going full-steam ahead with its promotional materials. The company partnered with popular Japanese clothing retailer UNIQLO for its annual t-shirt design contest, with the winning Pokemon-based design set to feature as a wearable shirt in Pokemon Sword and Shield. This Monday, UNIQLO announced that Li Wen Pei won the Grand Prize for the Totem Gyrados and Magikarp submission shown above – but just two days later, UNIQLO released another statement informing consumers that Li Wen Pei had been disqualified. So, what happened? As per the contest rules, submitted designs needed to be made specifically for this contest. After Li Wen Pei’s design made waves, it was discovered that the designer had previously sold his Totem design on phone cases prior to UNIQLO’s call for submissions. Since that directly violated the terms set by UNIQLO, the company … [Read more...] about Pokemon Sword and Shield T-Shirt Contest Winner Disqualified
More Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order information continues to be shared leading up to E3 2019. The action game’s newest trailer once again shows off some of Ultimate Alliance 3’s huge roster of playable characters. However, rather than any single character, this new trailer introduces a group that some Marvel fans were wondering would make the cut or not. The X-Men are now confirmed to be returning in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Nintendo and Team Ninja had previously confirmed that Wolverine was playable in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, but today’s trailer shows there’re many more X-Men than just Logan. The trailer opens with a look at a picture taken from within the Xavier Institute, a photo of the X-Men team that’s likely to be found in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. As for gameplay, only a few X-Men characters are shown as playable including Storm, Nightcrawler, Pyslocke (unclear if it’s Betsy or Kwannon), and the previously-confirmed … [Read more...] about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Trailer Confirms X-Men
A couple of months ago, a gag petition to add Scooby-Doo’s Shaggy to Mortal Kombat 11 took on a life of its own, perpetuated by the viral Shaggy memes which depicted him as a godlike entity. The virality of the memes has since died down, and while Shaggy will never officially be added to Mortal Kombat 11, he has appeared in a few fighting games via mods. Jump Force got a Shaggy mod some time ago, but the latest to get its own Shaggy mod is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Thanks to Demonslayerx8, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players can get their hands on Shaggy and try out his power against a myriad of characters such as the Duck Hunt Duo, Link, Samus, Pikachu, and so many more. Those who are interested in the mod should know that it is currently only available for his Patron supporters and his Discord server, but there will be a public release of this mod on June 7, 2019. Demonslayerx8 posted some occasional updates on his Twitter about his progress making this mod including UI … [Read more...] about Crazy Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Mod Adds Shaggy from Scooby-Doo

Pokemon GO saw one of its biggest Gen 4 updates recently, adding not only new Pokemon and evolutions, but brand new Lure Modules as well. Pokemon GO players can use these Lure Modules to get some of the game’s most anticipated Pokemon, including the Eeveelutions Glaceon and Leafeon. However, there is another way to get Glaceon and Leafeon in Pokemon GO. Past Eeveelutions in Pokemon GO have let players use a “name trick” to be guaranteed a certain Eeveelution, with the names coming from the Pokemon anime. For example, if players want their Eevee to evolve to Flareon, they can nickname it “Pyro.” Alternatively, if they want their Eevee to evolve to Vaporeon, they can nickname it “Rainer,” and so on and so forth. Despite players being able to guarantee themselves a Glaceon or Leafeon using Lure Modules, they can also use the name trick to get them as well. Please note that the name trick will only work the first … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO: Does the Name Trick Work for Glaceon and Leafeon?
