How To Easily Evolve Eevee Into Umbreon Or Espeon In Pokémon Go

When Pokémon Go first launch, crafty players quickly figured out that if they renamed their eevee Sparky, Rainer, or Pyro then the little 'mons would evolve into Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon, respectively. A similar trick seems to work for the recently released set of generation two critters.

The Silph Road ‏recently reported that if you rename your eevee Tamao before you evolve it then it will evolve into an Umbreon. Likewise, if you name your eevee Sakura it will turn into Espeon. We were able to confirm that this trick works when we tested it ourselves. Hopefully you stockpiled a few extra eevees. Happy Pokémon hunting! – The Feed

Reader Discussion – What Game Would You Like To See Adapted Into A Television Show?

Today news came that Amazon was greenlighting an animated show of Double Fine's Costume Quest. Costume Quest might not necessarily be a game that the masses have been clamoring to see a television adaptation of but it's definitely got potential, I think.

Anyway, I started thinking about games I'd love to see adapted into shows and I think both a straightforward serialized version of Grand Theft Auto IV or a prequel to Bioshock based on John Shirley's Pretty Good Tie-In Novel would be my choices. I also would dig a Saw-inspired take on Zero Escape.

What about you, readers? What games would you like to see adapted into shows? Let us know in the comments below. – The Feed

FTL: Faster Than Light Studio, Subset Games, Announces Into The Breach

Subset Games burst onto the scene with FTL: Faster Than Light, the roguelike space simulator which fulfilled our dreams of being captain of an advanced starship. After knocking it out of the park with FTL, Subset is back with a new title in a whole new genre.

Into The Breach is a turn-based tactics game, calling to mind the likes of genre classics Final Fantasy Tactics and Front Mission. It's mechs vs subterranean monsters in a battle for control of planet Earth. The narrative features a unique time travel twist, where failure has the player traveling back in time and trying again in an alternate timeline. We're not yet sure what effect this mechanic will have on gameplay, but we're confident that Subset has some clever tricks up its sleeve.

The game has been announced for PC, Mac, and Linux. According to Subset, Into The Breach will release "when we feel it's ready."
