‘Chicory’ Returns Color to its World With a Magic Paintbrush

Chicory solves puzzles, stirs up creativity, and creates friendships through painting its world back into colorful life. If you can help a certain dog get a handle on its magic, that is.

Some drab force has sapped all of the color out of the world, as well as the presence of its number one painter, Chicory. As Pizza (yes, that’s your cute name), you’re a big fan of their work, though, who finds themselves taking up that brush and trying to bring a similar talent into the world through your own creative hand. The animal folks of Picnic Town are counting on you, so now’s the time to let your fanhood spur you to your own acts of creativity and care.

Chicory is an adventure in a coloring book, having you explore black and white worlds, restoring color to them as you see fit. Not that you’re just playing around with this magic paintbrush, as you can use its powers to deal with puzzles or challenging areas. A little glow-in-the-dark paint could be just what you need to explore a bleak cave, or a few swipes of the brush could color an image that makes troubling blockades disappear. A mixture of …read more

New Baby Pokemon Card Needs 16 Energy to Pull Off Ridiculous Attack

A trailer shown at the Pokemon World Championships 2019 features a brand new type of card called Pokemon V, and while a new card mechanic is always interesting to consider, it’s impossible to ignore a particularly ridiculous card that was also revealed in the trailer.

Say hello to Togepi & Cleffa & Igglybuff GX, a new Tag Team card comprised of three adorable baby Pokemon that can nonetheless completely wreck the opponent’s board.

The Latest Addition to ‘SEGA Heroes’ Isn’t “Dragon” His Feet

No, I’m not going to apologize for that title. We already did the RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE thing the last time, so stupid puns were really all I had left. Anyway, the second character to be added to SEGA Heroes (Free) from the classic Altered Beast has arrived, and as predicted it’s another one of the Centurion’s animal forms. Spoiler warning for those who somehow got here without reading the title of the article: it’s the dragon.

Okay, not a dragon, if we’re being technical. It’s a weredragon. We’ve got a different Centurion this time around, but in his human form his abilities are no different from the Werewolf Centurion. He does have a leg up when it comes to his stats, however. Weredragon Centurion is a Legendary Green Striker, requiring 65 character shards to unlock. As such, he’s quite a bit stronger than Werewolf in most respects. His shards are available through the new Take to the Skies! event, or as a random pull from the Weredragon Release Chest. And yes, the odds of getting all 65 shards to unlock the character right now are pretty low, but slow and steady wins the race, right?

Pokemon Teases Giant ‘Dynamax’ Cards for Sword and Shield Expansion

A new teaser trailer for new Pokemon cards debuted at the Pokemon World Championships 2019 in Washington, D.C., giving players their first look at what to expect from the new Sword and Shield expansion — and it looks like something big is coming.

The trailer showed off “Pokemon V” as a new card type, although no details were given beyond the name and that Gen 8 legendaries Zacian and Zamazenta will have a Pokemon V card.

Their attacks were shown but other attributes like Energy cost, Resistance, Weakness and Retreat Cost were missing, as is typical for this kind of preview. Text at the bottom of the card reveals that Pokemon V will essentially be the successor to Pokemon GX — powerful cards that give up two Prizes when knocked out.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Trailer Reveals Epic New Abilities and More

A brand new Pokemon Sword and Shield trailer has been released and focuses on some epic new competitive abilities, moves, items, and much more that Pokémon Trainers around the world will be able to utilize when the newest Pokémon titles arrive on the Nintendo Switch later this year.

The first new ability revealed is Galarian Weezing’s Neutralizing Gas that cancels the effects of other Pokémon’s abilities and can even stop them from being triggered. For example, the gas will prevent Gastrodon’s Storm Drain ability from absorbing Water-type moves, and Rotom’s Levitate no longer protects it from Ground-type moves.

Some Pokémon, including Corviknight, have rare abilities known as Hidden Abilities. In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Pokémon caught in Max Raid Battles may have these abilities, such as Corviknight’s Mirror Armor, which will “bounce back any stat-lowering effects from an opposing Pokémon’s Abilities or moves.”
