The Legendary Revival of Pokemon Go

20597712_10155009257533877_859629550_o

It has been a little over a year since Pokemon Go has come out and we here at Retrenders have played through all of its highs and low points.  When the game first hit our phones, tons of players from all over the world were playing together to catch Pokemon int he real world. Months went by and with a lack of updates, the number of players dropped drastically.  Right about the time of the one year anniversary, Niantic finally gave us a new big update introducing us to the Pokemon of the Johto region.  With new Pokemon, came the return of some players.  But the game was still missing one thing…  Legendary Pokemon!
During this years Pokemon Festival in Chicago which happened a little over a week ago, Niantic introduced the world to its first set of Legendary Pokemon, Articuno and Lugia! They also gave us a time frame for when the rest of the Legendaries would see the world. Articuno has been out since the 22nd and saw its last day yesterday on the 31st of July. But when one door closes, another opens. With Articuno gone, Moltres will take his place from [Read more…]

Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age

Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age is finally out now World Wide for the PlayStation 4.  In my opinion one of the best Final Fantasy games out there.  I was so excited to play this game that when I got it (a day early) I streamed 2 hours of it.  Maybe I’ll stream again when I get halfway through the story so you’ll see more gameplay than cutscenes.

If this is a game you passed on back in 2006, I suggest giving it a go.  With the bumped up graphics and even a newly recorded orchestral soundtrack, this game is a beauty to listen and watch.

Now watch me defeat the dreaded Rogue Tomato!!! [Read more…]
