'Pokemon', 'Battlefield' reach new levels
By Reuben Gonzales - Video Game Warriors
Electrified mice and felines with rabbit ears are running around for you to befriend.
These furry little critters will be available for a lasting partnership on Nintendo's newest venture for The Pokémon franchise, Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu or Let's Go Eevee (depending on the copy of game purchased.)
It will feature the original 151 Pokémon and their mega evolution forms and the new Alolan forms.
The games will take place in the Kanto region, featuring connecting support for Pokémon Go, with capturing Pokémon being done the same way you do in the mobile game.
So instead of battling wild Pokémon to weaken them which players will have to either time the poké ball throw to capture it or feed it wild berries, players can find in order to make it easier to catch.
To throw a poké ball players will have to flick their joy-cons or use a special poké ball controller to make the catch. Players will get to run around the Kanto region with their new- found buddies that you can ride, or they can help find special hidden items.
Wild pokémon encounters have changed with it no longer being random but instead players can see the wild pokémon walking around and choose to go after them.
Players can also take on the regular gym leaders but also Master Trainers.
These trainers specialize in a certain pokémon, with an icon above their head and letting potential challxengers see what they are up against and allowing players to beat them to earn special titles.
The battle will be with only one pokémon and the use of items will not be allowed, so players will need to make sure that they have a game plan for the battles and be ready for special moves they can use.
Players can team up with their friends, take on gyms, and capture new pokémon together on the same console with just a simple shake of another controller.
It will also feature Pokémon Go support. These new features include sending caught Pokémon from your mobile phone to your game.
Players will be able to send gifts to their friends and Nintendo is also teasing a new secret Pokémon.
If you are trying to be the best like no one ever was then this game can be yours. It also comes in different bundle packs.
The game comes in two different versions, Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee.
They have the same features except the player's starting Pokémon is either Pikachu or Eevee, respectively.
Players can purchase either one for $60 or, for the greatest of trainers, the game can be purchased in a bundle that includes the poké ball for better immersion. This bundle costs $100.
Of course, since Pokémon is a huge franchise, Nintendo is releasing a special Nintendo switch, featuring bot title characters on the console for $400.
You can catch them all Nov. 16, so watch out for all bushes and be aware of Team Rocket.
Battlefield V, published by Electronic Arts. First-person shooter, battle royal, single-player, multiplayer. Available on Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One. $60 Standard Edition.
Take a tour through Europe and take in the sights and sounds of the world, just be careful of the landmines, bombs and burning tanks.
Battlefield V will push realism to its limits with its latest installment of the Battlefield franchise.
Battlefield V brings the series back to World War II with gritty, hyper-realistic graphics, allowing players to feel more immersed in the battles.
The campaign story will have three episodic stories told through different character's perspectives.
A majority of new changes coming to the game will be in the multiplayer area, adding new game modes and character customization.
Grand operations will be a tweaked version of Operations from Battlefield I, with the game taking place on a multi-stage map and culminating in "The Final Stand."
Players will have no respawn and only their main weapon with limited ammo to fight for survival.
Another new addition is Firestorm, EA's take on the Bat- tle Royal style games, the name comes from the giant literal firestorm that will kill players who don't make it to the safe zone.
The game mode will also fea- ture the largest map in franchise history and still use the destruc- tive environment that fans of the series have come to expect.
The Standard Edition, $60, comes with the game and if you pre-order it you will get a few extra goodies.
Pre-order specials include a Paratrooper outfit that players can use to customize their char- acter with, access to five weap- ons from Battlefield I, and Spe- cial Assignments that can help earn players rewards in-game.
The Deluxe Edition, $80, will include early access to the cam- paign, five sets of Paratrooper Outfits that include face paint, weapon skins, camo patterns, more special assignments than what players get for pre-order, and 20 weekly airlift items that contain one customization item.
So, get ready to drop in and push the Allied advance or spread the Axis power on Nov. 20.
