New Pokemon TCG Expansion, Evolving Skies, OFFICIALLY Announced

While we wait for Chilling Reigns to release next week, The Pokémon Company has officially released the next Trading Card Game Expansion: Sword & Shield—Evolving Skies.

Arriving worldwide on Friday, August 27, Evolving Skies seeks to focus on Eevee and its evolutions as well as numerous dragon-type Pokémon throughout the franchise.

Eevee fans will especially enjoy the fact that each Eeveelution will appear as a Pokémon V and Pokémon VMAX, along with some donning the ‘Rapid Strike’ and ‘Single Strike’ mantle introduced in Battle Styles. In addition, Rayquaza VMAX and Duraludon VMAX will make their debuts to the Sword & Shield series.

Like other expansions, Evolving Skies will be available in numerous forms for purchase: booster packs and 2 different Elite Trainer Boxes (one featuring Umbreon, Flareon, Jolteon, and Leafeon and the other featuring Sylveon, Vaporeon, Glaceon, and Espeon), with more likely in the future.

With this, Pokemon Company has also provide some more details on what exactly is in the series:

  • 15 Pokémon VMAX
  • 18 Pokémon V and 33 full-art Pokémon V
  • 24 Trainer cards and five full-art Supporter cards
  • A new Special Energy card

No announcements from major retailers have detailed any pre-order opportunities, so be sure to keep an eye out to your local shops!

GodStrike Impressions

Godstrike is an intense boss-rush game by OverPowered Team that will give any bullet rush fan a run for their money. The steep learning curve, paired with the various upgrades and abilities, can allure some players, but may have pushed a bit too hard for me to fully enjoy this adventure.

In Godstrike, you’re in control of Herald Yissia, the fast moving protagonist, where the goal is to defeat various creatures and beings through multi-phased boss battles. After defeating each boss, you gain more abilities and powers to customize how to progress and plan to defeat the other bosses.

Everhood Review

Question Everything

Each year, there seems to be more and more games published for fans to enjoy. Some people love first-person shooter games, others like big open-world games, while some love the abstract. I tend to lean towards the artistically different and thought-provoking pieces. Everhood was a game that I hadn’t even heard of until stumbling upon it on Steam. Happily,  I can’t stop thinking about the music, gameplay, world-building, and lasting verberation of its theme and what it accomplishes.

Arrog Review

Black and White and Awesome All Over

I have always enjoyed trying out smaller games that seem to offer an artistic experience that is unlike any generic AAA game. Gris, Hue, and Ape Out are on the forefront of those top-tier indie games that hit a style that is immediately distinguishable among the thousands of games released each year. Arrog, developed by LEAP Game Studios and Hermanos Magia, emerges onto PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 with an art style that can rival some of the best
