That sound you just heard was every single Pokemon fan in the world screaming in unison. Today Nintendo has announced the November 2014 release of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby, 3DS reimaginings of the original 2003 GBA games.

While no footage or screenshots have been shown of, it can be safely assumed that the games will feature the same graphical upgrade as last year’s Pokemon X and Pokemon Y.

Here is the second and final gallery of the cosplay pics I took at PAX East 2014. There’s some really awesome ones in this group, including a fun Animal Crossing trio, a family cosplaying Zelda awesomely, and the cutest Professor Sycamore. But the absolute best shot in here is the cutie who was cosplaying as Hawkeye — as in from The Hawkeye Initiative. He even did the pose! Loves it!

Make the jump for the full gallery of awesomeness!

Indie Darlings: Fist Of Awesome

Now and again we feature indie games of note, either for their content relevant to LGBTQ* communities, or just because.  Welcome to Indie Darlings:  Fist Of Awesome Edition.

Normally I’m quite skeptical of mobile games.  My instinct is not to like them, that chances are they’re shovelware, minimum effort for maximum profit.  But in Fist Of Awesome, rather than ads everywhere I fought my way through human zoos; rather than getting kicked in the crotch by the pay-to-win business model, I pummelled bears in the face.

I gave dozens of velociraptors uppercuts. Dozens.

Fist Of Awesome goes right for the part of you that still gets a little high off sugary cereal, the part of you that wishes they’d just get one – one – of those damn Transformers movies right (not counting the 80s animated movie with Unicron; that shit is for real).  And for the most part it’s a KO – and definitely worth the $2 it’s listed for on Google Play. 

Fist Of Awesome also (SPOILERS – unless you read our previous coverage of the game) lets you make out with a dude with a handlebar moustache at the end.  As those of you who’ve tried that before know, it rocks.

PAX East 2014: Cosplay Gallery #1

As always, one of my favorite things about PAX East is all the cosplay. And as always, I’ve got too many pictures for just one gallery, so I’ve split it into two. There were some really impressive costumes this year — in particular, I loved the Booker DeWitt who glued actual feathers to his hand for the Murder of Crows vigor. (He was cute, too!)

But my favorite cosplay in this particular gallery simply has to be the trio of Tingles. They actually had confetti that they threw up in the air that was completely awesome, but unfortunately, hard to capture in a still picture. (If you look for it, though, it’s there!)

Make the jump for the humongous gallery! Who were your favorites in this group? (And check back tomorrow for more!)

This week, I kick things off with a little movie review by sharing some brief thoughts on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 before jumping into the gaming of the week. Which naturally includes some more Disney Magical World before moving on to Infamous 2 and the purchasing of a two-fer RPG when I’ve already got more games than I have time to play them. Hey — I can’t resist a bargain!
