Instagram for Windows 10 Mobile gets a new tile and more in latest update

For those of you who have been accessing Instagram with 6tag, it might be time to start looking towards the official Windows 10 Instagram app. The app has received a new update recently, improving general stability and repairing a few features that weren’t working as intended. The update also replaced the black-and-white tile with a much better looking blue one, which is an extremely welcome change, considering just how awful the last tile looked.

The Windows Store page for the Instagram app isn’t showing us a proper change log, nor is it giving us a version number, but we’ve gone through the app to find some of the changes that are readily apparent. Here’s what we managed to pick out:

  • Tile redesign
  • General stability improvements
  • App startup significantly sped up
  • Faster video playback
  • The “shake to report issue” feature now works as intended.
  • You can now update photos from your gallery

If you discover any more improvements to the app, feel free to list them off in the comments section so we all know how Instagram is being tweaked.

China’s Anbang and Blackstone in $6.5bn US hotel deal

New York's famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel

China’s Anbang bought New York’s famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel from Blackstone in 2015

Chinese insurer Anbang has agreed to buy a US luxury hotel collection from private equity giant Blackstone for a reported $6.5bn (£4.5bn).

Blackstone is selling Strategic Hotels & Resorts, which owns 16 properties including the Four Seasons resorts in Arizona and Wyoming, just three months after buying the company themselves.

The deal marks the biggest US property purchase by a mainland Chinese buyer.

Anbang is also part of a group seeking to gatecrash a separate hotel deal.

US hotelier Marriott International said a consortium led by Anbang had made an “unsolicited” offer for Starwood Hotels.

Marriott and Starwood agreed to merge in November in a deal that would create the world’s largest hotel chain.

However, the Anbang-led consortium has offered $76 a share in a proposal worth about $14bn to outbid Marriott for the company.

Marriott said it was “still committed to the deal” ahead of shareholder votes on 28 March.

‘Diversify’

Chinese firms have been buying overseas assets despite the slowing economy.

Mainland investors have been snapping up prime US properties and other overseas assets to diversify their holdings amid concerns about weakness in China’s economy.

Anbang bought New York’s famous Waldorf-Astoria from Blackstone for a record $1.95bn last year.

The Beijing-based company also owns office buildings in New York and Canada and a South Korean insurance company.

It tried to buy Portuguese bank Novo Banco last year, but that fell through because of political objections over the sale of a systemically important European lender.

Last year, Chinese outbound acquisitions hit a record $108bn, according to data provider Dealogic.

However, that amount is on track to be overtaken, given that more than $84bn in deals have already been made so far this year, including the $43bn purchase of Swiss agri-firm Syngenta by ChemChina.

Page Analyzer extension for Edge on Windows 10 shown off in leaked screenshot

Just a few days ago, we were the first to bring you news about extensions on Microsoft’s Edge browser, specifically news that it would be arriving to Insiders very shortly. Here’s what our very own Zac Bowden had to say about it:

I’m told extension support for Microsoft Edge is now available in the latest rs1_release builds being flighted internally, meaning we’re mere days/weeks away from extensions landing for Insiders. This is great news for not only Insiders but for developers too, as it means work can finally start on porting over Chrome extensions to Edge.

A leaked screenshot of the upcoming Page Analyzer extension for Microsoft Edge has hit the internet (courtesy of WindowsBlogItalia). No details were revealed, except for a screenshot of the extension  — which is just like any other web service or extension that helps web developers check websites for proper standards, accessibility, and performance recommendations.

Extensions for Microsoft Edge are expected to launch officially with the first wave of updates to Windows 10 starting this June, so stay tuned! Keep an eye on WinBeta.org and we’ll let you know when extensions become available to Insiders for testing. From what we are hearing, there are very few extensions for Edge that are ready for testing with the upcoming desktop Insider build and will require developers to port or create them before we see an abundance of extensions available for consumers.

6 Things We’d Like to See in Pokemon Sun and Moon

image description

As we wait for the release of the recently announced Pokemon Sun and Moon, Game Rant takes a look at what features we’d like to see in the upcoming titles.

Despite the excitement of Pokemon Sun and Moon‘s announcement during Nintendo’s Pokemon-themed direct, very little has been revealed about the upcoming game besides the fact that it will be a new main series title.

Due to the lack of information in the company’s brief presentation, all we can do is speculate about the upcoming games, though some eagle-eyed fans have noticed that the presented concept art hints at the next adventure possibly having a tropical setting. While we don’t know much about what the new titles are going to be like, here are just some of the things we hope will be in Pokemon Sun and Moon.


A Better Rival

Pokemon Rivals

The original Pokemon games had great rivals that would occasionally pop up to test the player’s skills in battle. The Kanto region had Blue, Johto had Silver, and Hoenn had May/Brendan – as well as Wally. The thing is, as the games go on, The Pokemon Company seem to be diluting down the rival experience in place of allowing more characters to join the player’s journey. In the latest region, Kalos, the player has 4 friends that will turn up from time to time.

The thing is, while Blue and Silver’s teams would fill up and develop alongside the player’s, even the last time you encounter your friends in Pokemon X and Y, they still haven’t caught 6 Pokemon. Not only does this make them easier to beat but it actually serves to remove almost all of the threat in them challenging you to a battle. Here’s hoping that Sun and Moon brings back that same intensity that we saw when facing Blue in the Pokemon league for the first time.


Original Pokemon

Pokemon Rainbow

One thing that made Pokemon X and so great was the inclusion of classic creatures, as well as the new additions to the Kalos Pokedex. While Generation 6 delivered a range of fresh and unique Pokemon, the power of nostalgia is strong, especially for Pokemon fans. With the inclusion of the brand new Mega Evolution, old favorites suddenly became important and usable creatures again.

Of course we’re all wanting to see what The Pokemon Company delivers in terms of new creatures, but adopting X and Y‘s method of blending the old with the new might be the best tactic to ensure popularity of the new games. Maybe Sun and Moon will once again give players a second starter Pokemon, this time in the form of the second generation’s Cyndaquil, Totodile, or Chikorita.


Higher Difficulty

Pokemon Red Versus Giovanni

Despite Pokemon being a game generally aimed towards children, Nintendo has always been good at making its titles fun for all ages and the older fanbase isn’t about to abandon the franchise, especially during the Year of Pokemon. That said, it would be nice to see the Big N raise the difficulty just a little from it’s level in X and Y. The original games had just the right amount of difficulty to add a challenge while still keeping the game fun.

In the last original title, however, players had access to an exp. share that simultaneously levelled up all of their Pokemon at once, regardless of whether or not they were ever sent out in battle. This resulted in the player having a high level team with very little effort and led to many complaining that the game’s ultimate challenge, the Elite 4, required almost no preparation to beat. While an easy Pokemon game does remove the need to grind levels, it takes away from the great sense of achievement that we felt after finally beating a difficult gym leader or challenging rival fight.


More Evolution/Mega Evolutions

Pokemon X Y Mega Charizard Blastoise Venasaur

It’s almost guaranteed that we’ll be getting a new range of Mega Evolutions in order to capitalize on the new feature that was introduced in the past couple games, but a few new regular Pokemon evolutions would be welcomed also. Pokemon such as Dunsparce, Farfetch’d, and Shuckle are long overdue a new form in order to make the creatures relevant and worthwhile in battle again.

In terms of new Megas, it’ll be interesting to see if the developers give any more starter Pokemon a Mega Evolution in much the same way as they did with Gen 1 and Gen 3. A Mega Typhlosion or Empoleon would be sure to be met with a great reception, due to the popularity of the two. It’d also be interesting to see creatures like Dragonite, Flygon, or Rapidash get a Mega form because, frankly, it’s upsetting that they haven’t already received the upgrade.


Return of the Roller Skates

Pokemon skates

Pokemon X/Y’s addition of the roller skates was one of the things that made the game stand out in comparison to the other main series titles. Ever since the series began, trainers have been confined to a blocky movement pattern that only allowed them to move in 4 different directions. Then out came the roller skates and suddenly every Pokemon master could move fluidly and quickly at a push of the CirclePad. Yes, bikes are available too, but there was just something fresh and new about the skates that made them so much fun to use.

Not only were the skates practical but trainers could also learn tricks including a stylish “Cosmic Flip”. Sadly, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby removed the option to skate in order to stay true to the original games, but with Sun and Moon on the way, Nintendo should certainly consider bringing back the transport method.


Pokemon Followers

Pokemon Walking

Something that nearly every Pokemon fan wants to see is the return of the Pokemon follower. First seen in Pokemon Yellow where Pikachu could tail behind its trainer and be interacted with to check its mood, the Pokemon follower feature has been vastly underused ever since. Only appearing once more in Heart Gold/Soul Silver, Pokemon followers are well overdue a comeback.

Of course, it’d require a lot of effort to implement such a feature now, both because of the sheer number of Pokemon sprites that would need to be produced and because of the 3-dimensional movement but it’s sure to be very much appreciated by almost all of the Pokemon fanbase.


Conclusion

Still Play Pokemon Mid Twenties

Despite the first Pokemon titles coming out 20 years ago, fans of the series are still playing the games today, and this is reflected in the success of Nintendo’s second most popular franchise as the sales increase with each generation. While the old classics still have a great deal of replay value, it’s important that the Big N learns from its successes and puts a great deal of time into making sure Pokemon Sun and Moon are remembered as fondly.

Regardless of whether any or all of the features on our list are added to the next Pokemon games, it seems hard for Nintendo to do anything profoundly wrong with this legendary series. With that said, it’s no stretch to say that we’re all very excited to see how Sun and Moon turn out.

I’m in My Mid-Twenties And I Still Play Pokemon

image description

One editor talks about why he still finds Pokemon a great series as he’s grown into his mid-twenties, and why it’s okay to still play the franchise after all these years.

It’s almost hard to imagine my childhood without Pokemon. The series hit North America on September 28, 1998 in the form of the now beloved Pokemon Red and Blue. I still remember heading home from school that day, walking in through the front door alongside my little sister, and being greeted by my mom and dad. There, on the couch in my living room was my little brother – still too young to go to school – and in his hands was a copy of Pokemon Blue Version. I immediately turned around and there, in my mother’s hands, was my very own copy of Pokemon Red Version.

I remember that moment so vividly for a number of reasons, but what I didn’t know at the time was just how invested I would become in this turn-based, monster-gathering series. Seven year-old Riley has since matured quite a bit in the years following his introduction to Pokemon, but one thing that has never changed is my willingness to play the latest installment in the franchise. In fact, I’ve picked up every core entry the series has seen to-date, and there are no plans to change that. Even as I settle into my newly acquired age of 25, I’ve come to accept that fact that I continue to enjoy the series and there’s no reason to stop playing.

I’ve heard it all during the countless hours I’ve logged in my build to become a Pokemon Master. People are quick to brand the property as a kid’s game that others aren’t suppose to enjoy once they cross the threshold into adulthood. Truthfully, I’ve always found this to be a rather stupid point of view. Pokemon has and always will appeal to a large demographic of gamers, and I know many people my age and older that continue to replay the older versions of the game – if only for nostalgia’s sake. Heck, it’s the exact same reason why the re-releases of the original games on 3DSwere so highly anticipated.

New Pokemon Themed Nintendo Direct Announced - Ash Ketchum and PIkachu Pokemon anime

There’s something comforting about the series now, and despite the changes or upgrades it receives it never loses its feeling of familiarity. Perhaps that’s what I enjoy most about it, as I’m intimately acquainted with the type of experience I’m going to receive. While striking that all too familiar chord, every new iteration manages to justify its existence with additional monsters and a brand new story arc to follow. That’s one of the most invigorating aspects of the games, as each new title defines itself by the characters it introduces, the region it takes place in, and the monsters that fill it. Of course, not all gamers approve of these changes.

Despite what fans that have since moved on from the series will say, the new games and accompanying Pokemon push the newer titles ahead of their predecessors. It’s true that the original 151 hold a spot in my heart, but that’s based solely on the fact that they were the first monsters I ever encountered in this universe. I’m sure that’s the case for many, but to dismiss any others because of some misguided sense of nostalgia would be a mistake. When I encounter those that are adamant about how a monster inspired by a garbage bag or an ice cream cone are lazy, I point to the likes of Voltorb. It’s essentially a Pokeball with menacing eyes, and its name is literally the words ‘volt’ and ‘orb’ sloppily glued together. The original Pokemon aren’t immune to scrutiny, which is something I’ve learned after becoming a critic within this industry.

Pokemon Red 2 Blue 2

Of course, not every new entry is perfect either, but the franchise has evolved (pun partially intended) accordingly. Going back to play through and review Pokemon Yellow, for instance, revealed to me just how far the games have come, with day and night cycles, breeding options, various types, new attacks, and more rounding out the series significantly in the time that has passed since I first booted Red Version up on my Game Boy. It’s an IP that has grown up alongside me, and (while it has changed) there’s no denying that it has always provided an experience that allowed me to continuously enjoy a familiar formula with a new and welcomed coat a paint.

Pokemon stopped being exclusively for kids in my mind a long time ago when I looked in the mirror and realized I’d grown up with it. Even if you joined in on the Pocket Monster phenomenon later in life, the fact is that The Pokemon Company and Game Freak keep churning out great games. In the end, those that actively try to belittle or frown upon people of any age that find joy in playingPokemon (or any video game for that matter) probably need to find something better to do.

In the meantime, go out and play what you want. There’s no other way to be the best, like no one ever was.

Fallout Shelter Adds New Rooms in Latest Update

image description

Publisher and developer Bethesda’s latest update for its free-to-play mobile game Fallout Shelter introduces several new rooms, optimization fixes, and much more.

It’s no secret that Fallout Shelter is one of the most popular tap-screen games of all time, especially considering the fact that Bethesda’s creative director Todd Howard recently revealed that it’s the most played game in the post-apocalyptic franchise. With that in mind, the studio decided the best course of action to celebrate the feat would be to reward its legions of fans in the title’s forthcoming Update 1.4 with the biggest batch of materials Fallout Shelter has received yet.

Upon the availability of Fallout Shelter‘s soon-to-be-released patch, fans will be able to take part in building their own items in new weapon and armor rooms — much like with Fallout 4‘s optional crafting system — customizing the appearance of Wasteland settlers with an actual barbershop, providing fresh duds for Vault Dwellers, and more. Fans can find the full rundown of what Bethesda plans to include in Update 1.4 in the bulleted list below.

  • Turn worthless junk into useful items! Introducing… crafting!
  • New Rooms! Build the new Weapon and Armor crafting rooms and use them to create your own items in game!
  • Lunchboxes now contain a bonus 5th card: Junk! Trust us – it’s more useful than it sounds. Lucky wasteland explorers may also find junk on their adventures.
  • Take the Overseer role to the next level. Build the new Barbershop and customize the look of any Dweller.
  • Keep up with the latest fashions! Find new Outfits and Weapons straight from Fallout 4in lunchboxes, or craft them yourself!
  • Because four-legged companions bring overwhelming happiness, we’ve added new Dogs and Cats, and are introducing… Parrots! Plus, new Pet bonuses!
  • Time of day is now properly reflected. Because authentic Vault simulation is our #1 goal!

Fallout Shelter‘s Update 1.4 will be the developers’ first major contribution to the game with fresh content in 2016, as Bethesda’s last big offering came with its addition of Dogmeat and cats as petsback in December of last year. However, the studio didn’t provide an exact date as to when the new materials will be available, for it said that Update 1.4 is coming “later this week”.

Considering the massive success of Fallout Shelter, Bethesda has proclaimed interest in making even more mobile games down the line, which is great news for fans of the company’s products. With the studio supplying the free-to-play title with plenty of fun additions and content drops since its release in the middle of June last year, there’s no reason for fans to not be excited at the prospect of other Bethesda franchises making their way to mobile devices.

fallout-shelter-update-new-rooms-pets

Plus, since Fallout Shelter earned $5.1 million in its first two weeks on Apple products, the studio would easily add buku bucks to its bottom line if it ported the Elder Scrolls series in some way onto Android and iOS platforms.

Even though Fallout Shelter hasn’t received Update 1.4 yet, Bethesda went on to say that it would be issuing “many more” improvements in the long run, which is a good sign we’ll see more holiday-themed add-ons in the future. As it happens, the construction and management simulation game celebrated its fair share of festivals in the past, from having Settlers spruce up the Vault withHalloween decorations to decking the halls with Christmas ornaments.

Nevertheless, in regards to the ingenuity of all that Bethesda has cooked up thus far for the game, it wouldn’t be surprising for the studio to have something much more fulfilling in mind than such cosmetic offerings as holiday-related content.

Nokia’s return to the smartphone market set in 2016, revealed CEO

Last month, on May 12, 2015, Nokia just celebrated their 150th anniversary, making it one of the longest-life smartphone manufacturers in the world. One month later, we have their Nokia CEO announced with the press about a promising coming back: Nokia’s return to the smartphone market with Nokia Android!! Isn’t it just exciting and worth waiting for the Nokia Comeback in 2016?

nokia c1

Nokia’s return to the smartphone battle has already been set to come. Although most of this Finnish technology company was sold to Microsoft in a multi-million dollar deal which completed last year, there are still parts belong to the long-standing brand. In the Nokia’s return, the Giant will be focusing on designing and licensing only.

Nokia’s return: Watch out, competitors! The Giant is coming back

They are thinking of partnering with some different third parties to provide Nokia’s design and let those companies manufacture and launch final products, said CEO Rajeev Suri to German Publication, the “Manager Magazin”, when announcing Nokia’s return. Under an agreement with Microsoft, Nokia is not allowed to use its brand on phones until Q4 of 2016. So if everything goes right, the world-famous Nokia will come back to the smartphone market in 2016. “We will look for suitable partners,” says Suri. “Microsoft makes mobile phones. We would simply design them and then make the brand name available to license.”

Nokia Comeback 2016: Promising a dream flagship?

Recently, even before the news of Nokia’s return was revealed, there have been leaking rumors about an amazing Nokia Power Ranger concept. The device is spotted with 512GB and Dual-Boot, which has drawn attention of huge amount of users worldwide. Now, together with the returning of the Giant, we have all the proof to hope that the dream device will come true soon. It’s been really long since we last heard the name Nokia in smartphone retailers and showroom. Hope the Finnish Giant will bring out something extraordinary like the long awaited Nokia C1 Android Smartphone!

5 of the best Huawei smartphones in Q1 2016

In this H1 of 2016, we bet there will be a lot of handsets getting launched, including Huawei smartphones. Some of them will be super cool with high-end hardware; some will be very affordable. Check out what Huawei has given and will give us in the first 6 months of the year!

huawei mate s2

1. Huawei Honor Holly 2 Plus: Affordable mid-ranger
