Last week Nintendo announced that there would be two new Pokemon games headed to the Nintendo Switch in November. In addition to the new games, it was also revealed that there would be a new accessory called the Poke Ball Plus, a controller shaped like (as the name suggests) a Poke Ball.

'tablets' Section Removed From Android Website

'Tablets' Section Removed From Android Website

The last time we saw an Android tablet from Google was back in 2015 where they launched the Pixel C Tablet. The company did not launch anymore tablets after that and in 2017, it was reported that they had stopped selling it. This is why it doesn't really come as a shock to learn that Google has since removed the "tablet" section from the Android website.

Like we said given that Google hasn't really bothered updating the Pixel C Tablet since it was first launched 2 years ago and with Google keeping mum on Android on tablets, it almost feels like they've given up. To be fair Google isn't alone in this. Companies such as Samsung and Motorola have in the past put out a fair number of Android tablets, but this has waned in recent years.

Diablo 3 For The Nintendo Switch Listed On Retailer's Website

Will they? Won't they? That is the question that some gamers are trying to figure out because according to the rumors, Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch is in the works. However Blizzard seemed to have dashed the hopes of many when they said they had nothing to announce regarding Diablo on the Switch.

Despite the somewhat official stance, the rumors have persisted and now according to a listing on retailer Coolshop which is based in the UK, Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch has been spotted yet again. Now it is possible that Coolshop is simply listing the game based on the rumors and is trying to get ahead of the competition.

Gamers Can Now Post Reviews Of Switch Games On Nintendo's Website

Gamers Can Now Post Reviews Of Switch Games On Nintendo's Website

Online game distribution platforms such as Steam often display ratings and reviews of games by other gamers, letting customers know if a game might be worth their time and money. While reviews for Nintendo Switch games can be found online, they were never really in the same place, at least until now.

It appears that Nintendo is allowing gamers to publish reviews of Switch games on its website. This means that gamers who surf on over to the Nintendo website to browse for games will be able to see reviews and ratings of the game left by other players. At the moment the listing for reviews isn't as intuitive as other systems, although this is largely due to the fact that Nintendo's website also plays home to a bunch of other systems like the Wii U, 3DS, and more.

Amazon (briefly) Listed The Fujifilm X-h1 On Its Website

Amazon (Briefly) Listed The Fujifilm X-H1 On Its Website

If the rumors are true, Fujifilm is expected to officially announce the Fujifilm X-H1 mirrorless camera in the next couple of days. We have been hearing about the camera in a steady stream of leaks, with the most recent revealing the possible design of it. However none of this is official yet so there was always the off-chance that it could all be one massive hoax.

However it looks like the rumors have since been corroborated by Amazon, who for a very brief moment actually listed the camera on its website. This was spotted by the folks at Fuji Rumors who were quick enough to snag some screenshots before the page was taken down. The listings were for the X-H1 (body only), the X-H1 with grip, and also the vertical grip accessory for the camera.

God Of War Stone Mason Edition Spotted On Gamestop's Website

God of War Stone Mason Edition Spotted On GameStop's Website

Back at E3 2016, Sony took the wraps off the latest God of War title that they were working on. The game has yet to be officially released, but it seems that we could be getting closer because according to a post on the Reset Era forums, GameStop has recently listed (it has since been taken down) a God of War Stone Mason Edition.

Basically this is a special copy of the game that will be bundled with various goodies in addition to the game, and we guess you could call it a Collector's Edition. This will feature the game in question, a 9-inch statue of Kratos and Atreus by Gentle Giant, a limited Steelbook case, 2-inch Huldra Brothers carvings, an exclusive lithograph, a cloth map, Stone Mason's Ring, Mimir's Head Talking Keychain, and 2-inch Horse and Troll carvings.
