Niantic Studios, the same studio behind the augmented reality mobile game Pokemon Go, is now making a Harry Potter augmented reality game. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, puts you in the role of a wizard in the world of Harry Potter, letting you wander around and learn magic in the process. By exploring the real world such as your neighborhood or town or city, you can go on various wizarding adventures, learning a variety of spells, encountering magical creatures, and also meeting familiar characters. While there isn’t a lot of other information about the game, hopefully it’ll be better than Pokemon Go, with more content. While Pokemon Go experienced wild popularity when it was first released, a lack of other Pokemon, plus dodgy server connections and unsatisfactory mechanics, caused it to fall by the wayside almost as fast as it rocketed to the top. The Harry Potter universe has a lot of things that can be put into a mobile game, especially since a new Harry Potter film … [Read more...] about Niantic Is Developing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, An Augmented Reality Game

Peanut butter and jelly. Bacon and eggs. Rum and Coke. Simon and Garfunkel. Harry Potter and deckbuilding. These are all two great tastes that taste great together, with the latter combination coming together in the form of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, a fun legacy-lite deckbuilding game from USAopoly. While you can’t eat it like you can the others, it will still leave you satisfied if you are a fan of deckbuilding games, and especially if you are a fan of the Harry Potter movies. I suppose you can’t eat Simon and Garfunkel either or, at least, you shouldn’t … anyway, let me tell you about Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, and why you’ll probably want to play it rather than eat it.I’m great at analogies.I’m going to (mostly) avoid spoilers in this review, not because I don’t want to spoil the story of Harry Potter, but because a big part of the fun in the game is discovering what each new box adds to the experience. This game is actually … [Read more...] about Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle Review – Cistem Aperio!
If it's not a movie-related game, then it isn't getting a retail release this week, because the only two titles coming out are linked to big blockbuster films. The first, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, sticks to the tried-and-true formula of third-person action that has dominated the seven previous games. In case you're unfamiliar with the Harry Potter universe, this game follows the final confrontation between Harry and Lord Voldemort. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II is due out a day after the movie, arriving on the 14th of July on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PC, and DS. Captain America: Super Soldier is also a third-person action game; however, it's not directly tied to the plot of the film. Instead, Sega has opted to bring on renowned comic writer Christos Gage to pen a completely new plot for the game. The first Avenger's target remains the Nazis, but the setting is slightly different, and he's going after more than just Red Skull. Keep an eye … [Read more...] about AU Shippin’ Out July 11-15: Harry Potter
If there's one way to stop a box-office slump in Hollywood, it's releasing another installment of a fun-for-all-ages franchise. The Harry Potter movies, based on the J.K. Rowling books, have never had problems filling the seats and selling popcorn. With the inevitable blockbuster movie comes the obligatory blockbuster game based on it.

There's a lot going on in Harry Potter's life, thanks to his penchant for trouble and the minor irritation of always being in mortal danger. When you throw in a vast catalogue of friends and foes, as well as an intricate web of interpersonal relationships, it's no surprise that turning all of this into a dialogue-free video game was not an easy task. But it seems the Traveller's Tales team is managing fine. Using its past experience in Lego titles--including Lego Star Wars and Lego Batman--the team said it relied on humour and the undeniable charm of coloured interlocking plastic blocks to transform the complex world of Harry Potter into a toy kingdom. We chatted to associate producer Vince Grogan about the challenges of storytelling the Lego way, a new level editor, and the interminable appeal of the boy wizard with a lightning-shaped scar. GameSpot AU: This game only looks at the first four years in Harry’s life at Hogwarts. How was the decision made to break the games … [Read more...] about Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Q&A
