New Pokémon Go update adds new Pokémon, cheaper storage

Niantic announced a new update this week that will add 80 new Pokémon from the second generation of games for players to collect and battle. The update will offer cheaper storage expansion for the next two weeks. New Pokémon from Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal coming to the game such as Chikorita, Espeon, and Umbreon will be found in the wild. New evolutionary items and berries will be added to enhance collections and increase challenge during battles. Additional features include Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries, which trainers use to slow Pokemon to prevent them from running away and collect double the candy on successful catches respectively. There will be additional customization features for trainers as well. Buying storage space will cost 50 percent less than normal, making upgrades 100 Poke Coins or 99 cents per purchase. The discount will begin from afternoon PST on February 16 and continue through February 28. Currently, maximum capacity is set to 1,000 Pokémon and each upgrade will give players 50 more slots. It will cost player around $15 to get maximum capacity. All Pokémon Go players will have access to the update by the end of the week.

Disney, YouTube drop PewDiePie over anti-semitic controversy

Disney and YouTube are distancing themselves from YouTube star Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, after a string of anti-Semitic videos. The videos, beginning in August 2016, featured images such as: the attempted resurrection of Adolf Hitler, a man dressed as Jesus Christ saying “Hitler did absolutely nothing wrong,” and, most recently, a video of two south-east Asian men holding up a sign saying “Death to all Jews,” which Kjellberg paid them to do. Sunday, Kjellberg made a post to his Tumblr, saying his videos should be taken as “serious political commentary” and he is “in no way supporting any kind of hateful attitudes,” though no apology was given in the post.

‘RWBY Volume 4’ sets up but lets down

Rooster Teeth’s hit show, RWBY, historically has had problems with pacing, storytelling, and its animation. Volume three had remedied many of these problems with an incredible season that had a real impact. However, volume four has returned to its past problems with pacing and storytelling, but in new aspects. While previous volumes had characters that felt too flat, this new volume tried a bit too much with its characters spread throughout the world of Remnant.

Remixed S1E2 – Gaga, Grammy’s, and Nickelback

With the Grammy’s fast approaching, we discuss the unique myriad of performers slated to appear at this Sunday’s award’s show. We also couldn’t help but notice that Nickelback wanted to put in their two cents (five cents?) on recent political issues in their new single Feed the Machine. Imagine Dragons’ new single titled Believer is what we believe to be better execution of lyrics and sound. On top of everything, one of our favorite bands Twenty-one Pilots have ended the Blurryface era with a music video for the song heavydirtysoul. We’re pretty hyped about that.
