Niantic has been working on the next update for their Pokemon GO game, and the update when it arrives will make leveling up a bit easier thanks to the new Buddy system they are planning to add to the game.

Our friends over at errorsevendev have announced that their newest game for Android, called CELL 13, is now available for download today.

Telltale Games has announced the release date for Episode 2 (called Children of Arkham) of their new Batman series, but only for PC and consoles. Why?

The good news is that you will have a few days to play through episode 1 before the second episode arrives for PC and consoles.
