While the tagline might be about the player catching them all in Pokemon, it increasingly feels as if it's Nintendo, Niantic and The Pokemon Company who are playing gotta catch 'em all with hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Pokemon Go has taken the world by storm, and it's still yet to even launch in dozens of territories. Suffice to say, get hundreds of millions of people doing one thing, and craziness and stupidity inevitably follow. Here's the highlights of what's been a manic few weeks for  Pokemon fans.

For players of a sci-fi leaning the wait until No Man’s Sky finally arrives has been a painful one. Numerous delays coupled with wondering whether it was ever even going to come to PC has been enough to cause even the sanest minds to construct rickety spaceships in their back gardens in the hopes of one day blasting off. The best way to wait though has been to tuck into the already glorious space sims out there, with three reigning supreme over all - Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen and EVE Online. [More]

Blizzard’s usually stellar animation department must be tied up with all things Overwatch as its World of Warcraft: Legion animated short is a little on the basic side compared to its previous creations, despite the fantastic artwork. Created to build hype for World of Warcraft’s upcoming six expansion pack, it features Gul’dan neatly enough, he of recent Warcraft movie fame. [More]

AMD has released its Q2 fiscal year 2016 results and in a slightly shocking turn of events has actually managed to crawl into the black after years of losses. AMD’s revenue was $1.027 billion over the last three months, up 9% year on year and 23% from the last quarter. The launch of its eagerly anticipated first Polaris chip is partly responsible, with the Radeon RX 480 met with favourable reviews and keen consumer interest. [More]

Buying an HTC Vive is an expensive process. An eye watering £743.74 including shipping on the official Vive store. That’s just the start though, because replacement parts are also hideously costly. HTC Vive’s accessories store page has just gone live, letting Vive users pick up replacement controllers, face cushions, link boxes and base stations, but prepared to rinse your bank accounts dry.
