We've known for a while now that the Japanese exclusive Great Detective Pikachu is being adapted to the big screen by Legendary Entertainment. While the concept seems strange, there's a ton of talent behind it, such as Alex Hirsch, Nicole Perlman, and Rob Letterman. Recently, Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton were cast as the film's male and female lead respectively. With a ton of big names going into the production of the movie, many fans were left wondering who would play the Great Detective Pikachu. One fan favorite was Danny DeVito, but it seems another actor has stepped up to the role instead: Ryan Reynolds.

Original: Attention, Pokémon Trainers!

Difficulty. It is something that no entertainment medium other than video games has to contend with. Our input as players defines our experiences with our games, in particular how challenging they are. One need only be present for a song or movie to finish in order to get the full experience. In order to get through a game however, one must be skilled enough to adapt to the requirements of whatever game is being played to "win" in the end. Some games give us fairer challenges than others, and it is in evolving game design where either frustration or satisfaction on behalf of the player are born.

So gamers, make the jump if you want to know what makes us tick when it comes to facing our virtual demons!

For a free game, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp accomplishes a remarkable amount: being able to appeal to millions of players who have never played an Animal Crossing game before, introducing new elements to the franchise, creating a streamlined version of seeing more design options and animal friends than ever before in a relatively short period of time, and simplifying gameplay for all ages and interest levels. Without further ado, let's go camping!

Read the full op-ed to understand why I think Pocket Camp is just right for a Nintendo mobile game for all parties involved!

Yes, there is actually a game behind all the controversy surrounding the microtransactions the world cannot stop speaking about. As a disclaimer, this review will focus solely on the microtransactions-free single player campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II. The multiplayer seems to be an addicting setup for Star Wars fans who have self-control enough to not spend their hard-earned cash on elements (with some time) unlocked otherwise through playtime, but for nerds like me, the single-player game is a refreshing break from the hectic, wily realm of multiplayer for a canon tale worthy of the famous brand.
