Some players came back when the game added gen 2 Pokémon to the mix, and now there will probably be another bump in the number of players. Niantic is rolling out an update today that adds gen 3 Pokémon to the game, as well as dynamic weather conditions that can affect gameplay.

Crows Crows Crows disrupts the means of food production in its debut game 'Eat: The Revolution'

You may not have heard of the developer Crows Crows Crows before, but that's alright, because before their release of Eat: The Revolution I too had no idea who they were. Apparently, this development company is headed by The Stanley Parable co-creator William Pugh. If you have ever played through The Stanley Parable, you should be quite familiar with the high-concept game design of William Pugh. Eat: The Revolution is no different in this regard as it offers something very distinctive when compared to the average game on the Play Store.

Navigate royal politics and intrigue with a swipe in Reigns: Her Majesty from DevolverDigital

Running a kingdom is probably a lot of work, but it's a breeze in Reigns. Actually, it's a swipe. The original Reigns put you in the role of king, but Reigns: Her Majesty places you in the (presumably luxurious) shoes of the queen. Can you keep the king from screwing the kingdom up or will you find yourself at the end of a pitchfork?

Pocket for Android introduces highlighting feature in latest update [APK Download]

Okay so this isn't the most mind-blowing news story you'll read today, but it's a useful new Pocket feature that's long been requested by users. To someone who hasn't used the app for a while, I must say I'm surprised to learn that highlighting wasn't already a feature. Not that it matters, now, as the latest update includes the ability to make passages of text a little bit yellow.

Instagram makes your Stories last forever with Archives and Highlights

There's a point in every person's life when they give up on trying to be the cool kid and surrender to their fate of scoffing, "kids, nowadays!" at every opportunity. I reached mine a couple of years ago when Snapchat became a thing, Twitter started being about politics and news more than fun conversations, and everyone (and their mom, dad, kids, and grandparents) was on Facebook.
