Players are also able to battle andtradePokmon with other human players using the Nintendo 3DS's connectivity features. Like in previous games in the series, certain Pokmon are only obtainable in eitherXorY, with players encouraged to trade with others in order to obtain all Pokmon from both versions.

3DS Polygonal GraphicsPokmon XandYare the first titles in the main series presented in fully 3D polygonal graphics, allowing for more interactivity with the overworld and more dynamic action during battles. Players are also able to customize their Pokmon trainer's appearance, choosing gender, skin tone and hair color at the start of the game, and can later acquire outfits and accessories to change their character's look. Joining the previous generations of Pokmon are all new species, such as the new Starter Pokmon; Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie, and the Pokmon that are, within the fictional Pokmon world, described as legendary, namely Xerneas, Yveltal and Zygarde. Players will also be able to choose from one of the classic starter Pokmon fromPokmon RedandBlue later on in the game. The new Fairy-type is introduced for both new and old Pokmon, the first new type added to the series sincePokmon GoldandSilver. Game developers stated the addition was used to balance the Dragon-type.In battles, certain moves can interact with background objects, including rocks, bushes, and sand dunes, to uncover items that are difficult or impossible to obtain otherwise.


HOTTEST GAMING NEWSSo, is the Apple TV a PS4 and Xbox One killer?Technically, the Apple TV has the same 64-bit A8 processor as theiPhone 6 and 6 Plus smartphones, but without the M8 motion coprocessor as that's not required in a set-top-box. It is therefore capable of running games in as good a quality as you're used to on the current phones.It also has Metal technology support, which developers have been using to squeeze graphical performance out of the A8 chip for the last year. And as developers get better at data management, the games have gotten better over that time.Just look at recent iOS releases, like Unkilled from Madfinger to see how good games can be on the platform.The file size limit for iOS applications is 4GB, while triple-A PS4 and Xbox One games can be 10 times that or more. Forza Motorsport 6, for example, is almost 45GB in size.That said, games like the excellent and graphically impressive Real Racing 3 are very clever with storage management on iOS, fitting within the 4GB limit and also using the cloud effectively. And graphical fidelity is not the be all and end all with games, there are many indie games for consoles today that have been awarded five star reviews yet fit within a couple of Gigabytes.


BADASS CHARACTER OF THE WEEKThe WormsGame: WormsWe are convinced you will not find a group of creatures as bad ass as the ones in Worms. These blood thirsty creatures constantly find ways to blow each other to bits using tools, weapons, and tanks.


DID YOU KNOW?On Call of Duty MW3, though the enemy weapons have tac-lights, once the player acquires one of these guns, the flashlight disappears. This is due to the fact that the lights are attached to the enemies themselves; not the guns.
