Atari released a “new” game today that has an Android version available, but older PC gamers may recognize it as being a classic game. The new title is RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic and is based on the original RollerCoaster Tycoon and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 titles for PCs. The game brings a similar visual experience and gameplay from the classic titles to the mobile platform.

At this point, there isn’t too much about the OnePlus 3T that hasn’t been revealed over the past few weeks. It’s known that the OnePlus 3T is an updated version of the original OnePlus 3 (reviewed here), and will almost certainly be unveiled later today at 1PM, as alluded to by OnePlus itself. This gives us a while to wait still but the handset maker has thought of this and has placed a nifty little flying game on the OnePlus 3T’s product page.
Pokemon Go, like any other popular mobile game, started off strong then slowly waned in popularity. It’s still doing well, but Niantic is going to have to put in some extra work to give the game legs now that the initial burst has worn off.
Earlier this year Sony launched a new subsidiary to start work on transitioning some of their biggest titles from their console lineup to mobile devices. The subsidiary, ForwardWorks, has committed to bringing at least five titles from the Sony portfolio of games to both the iOS and Android platforms according to an announcement from Sony today.

Pokémon Go may have just launched in July, to much success, but Niantic’s leadership team is already looking ahead to how they can add to the title to keep players and fans engaged.

If you haven’t heard about the Pokémon Gocraze or seen the multitude of young, and not so young, people wandering aimlessly on the sidewalks trying to catch Pikachu and friends, you may well have been in a coma for the last few weeks. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the game, developed by Niantic and licensed from Nintendo, has taken the world by storm, earning more than $1.6 million in profits every day since launching on July 6th. But how popular is the game really? Join us after the break to find out.

Bad news for Pokemon Go fans. While the Pokemon Go Plus accessory was originally slated for a late July release, Nintendo has announced that they’ll have to push back the official launch until September. There’s no word on why the delay happened, but considering pre-orders all over the web have completely sold out it probably won’t affect how long it will take for the average person to walk in a Gamestop and pick one up.
Nintendo has been riding the swell of success since the release of Pokémon Go, with its market value almost doubling, having reached a $42 billion valuation just two weeks after the game launched on July 6. But, while Nintendo’s name is the brand most readily associated with Pokémon Go, it didn’t develop the game itself. Instead, the game was actually developed by Niantic, the same company behind the Ingress game that used to be part of Google. This realization, along with Nintendo’s announcement that the Pokémon Go app would have limited impact on its profits, has seen its share price tumble.
Gaming peripherals company Razer has been working on its very own chat app for Pokémon Go, according to a report from The Verge. This instant messenger will be called RazerGo, and it’s set to launch very soon.
