Pokemon Direct live stream (6/6/17)
E3 2017 is only a week away, but it already feels like the festivities have started. Today’s Pokemon Direct can be partially attributed to that since we should be getting some big news about the franchise very soon.
No live blog for this one due to how short it is, but you can watch the Pokemon Direct as it happens below in an hour from now (7 AM PT / 10 AM ET / 3 PM in the UK / 4 PM in Europe). Although it’ll only be eight minutes long, similar presentations focusing on the series have been equally short. We’ll put up any breaking news on the site right as it happens.

Splatoon 2 introduces new sub-weapon “robot bomb”
Posted on 1 year ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch | 2 Comments | 0 Likes
Just like the poison mist yesterday, the Splatoon Twitter account has introduced another new sub weapon in Splatoon 2 today. The “robot bomb” is a sort of walking homing missile. You throw it, and once it lands, it’ll detect the nearest enemy in a certain radius and starts walking towards them until it explodes.
One of the weapon kits that’ll have the robot bomb sub is the “Foxy”, a roller-type weapon that seems to be quite similar in appearance to the Octobrush from the first game. It will also have the Inkjet special.
Check out the robot bomb in action, as well as look at some screenshots of it and the Foxy:

As could be seen in the latest Nintendo Direct, ARMS doesn’t take itself and its lore all that seriously. Today, the official ARMS Twitter account posted the concept art you see above, which supposedly depicts the history of the mysterious extendable Arms. Apparently, the oldest known records of extendable Arms date back to about 1,500 years ago, although some experts argue that they have been around for about 4,000 years. They also weren’t limited to humans – even animals and plants were said to possess that ability.
