I’ve been enjoying the hell out of Destiny since it came out as you can tell from this glowing review that I gave it. Still, even I have to admit that the game can get a bit repetitive at times. Thankfully, Bungie is setting up some new events within the next couple of days which should make things more interesting.

Between September 19-21 a new Crucible match called Combined Arms will be available. In this mode, a fireteam of up to 6 players will engage in vehicular combat with another team. From September 26 to October 1st, the mission The Queen’s Wrath will be opened. This will offer new bounties and mission modes. There are also Faction events happening in September and October for Dead Orbit and Iron Banner.

This is all great stuff. No doubt that we’ll see more of these events happening regularly in order to keep people playing the game. I have no problem with that. Keep the good stuff coming, Bungie!

Make sure to sign up for The Koalition’s Destiny clan.

Nintendo announced today that numerous DLC packs are coming for Hyrule Warriors in the coming months. These packs will add new characters, weapons, stages, and much more.

The first pack, which is free, comes to Japan on September 30 and North America and Europe on October 16. It includes the three Hyrule Warriors villains (Cia, Volga, and Wizzro) as playable characters. Also on October 16, a paid Master Quest DLC Pack will debut and add a new weapon, scenario, adventure map, and two costumes.

Three other packs will come later, including a Twilight Princess pack in November, a Majora’s Mask pack in January, and a Boss pack in February. If you pre-order all of the packs for $19.99/€14.99, you can unlock a Dark Link costume right now. There is no word on individual pack pricing in North America or Europe yet. See below for the full list of DLC:

Hyrule Warriors Characters (Free, September 30) – Three new playable characters (Cia, Volga, Wizzro)

Master Quest Pack (October 16) – New weapon, scenario, adventure map, and two costumes

Twilight Princess Pack (November) – New character, weapon, adventure map, and two costumes

Majora’s Mask Pack (January) – Two new characters, adventure map, and three costumes

Boss Pack (February) – Two new games modes

It’s unknown just what exactly an adventure map is, but considering the Adventure Mode in Hyrule Warriors is based on a map of the original Legend of Zelda with a stage representing each square, it’s possible that the new adventure maps could either be alternate versions of that map or maps from other Zelda games.

Hello Anime peeps,

Sentai Filmworks has announced their anime releases for the month of December. Some of these anime I’m pretty excited for, one of them just happens to be Reideen. Reideen has its typical setup of Robotics and a power that everyone wants, but it still has that edge of action and excitement that I like in anime. Don’t take my word for it, check it out if you like. Otherwise, look at the list below to see what you might like!?

The list of releases is as follows:

SYNOPSIS: Yui Komori has spent her life sheltered by the Church and the man she thinks of as her father, but now she’s going to a new home and there’s a very different kind of family waiting for her.  To her dismay, she discovers that she’ll be living with six very attractive young men, and not a single one is human!  And if trying to keep an entire brood of vampires at fangs’ length wasn’t stressful enough, there are even more sinister forces at work, threatening not only Yui’s life, but her very soul.  Drawn into her wildest fantasies, or perhaps her most salacious nightmares, one thing is certain: Yui’s life will never be the same once she meets the DIABOLIK LOVERS!

SYNOPSIS:  Yuta has a problem.  As one of the thousands of Japanese students afflicted with “chunibyo”, a state where they’re so desperate to stand out that they’ve literally convinced themselves that they have secret knowledge and hidden powers, Yuta spent most of his middle school years living in a complete fantasy world.  But that’s not his major problem now, as with a lot of work and effort, he’s finally managing to overcome his delusions to the point where he thinks he’s ready to start high school with all his cards in order.  No, his BIG problem is the girl he first encounters climbing on his balcony.  Because it seems that his own efforts to rid himself of his chunibyo have attracted the attentions of another sufferer, and SHE’s decided that this makes him her soul mate.  And since Rikka’s just moved in upstairs, now he’s being sucked into HER fantasy world!  Can a formerly wild and crazy guy handle being the focus of a completely delusional girl?  Or will his own chunibyo return with a vengeance?  Either way, the phrase “madly in love” is bound to get redefined in LOVE, CHUNIBYO & OTHER DELUSIONS!

Things start to get weird when mysterious dark forces and a gang of misfits called the Logos come after her. Luckily for Tamaki, she is suddenly surrounded by five handsome young men that come to her rescue and now act as her guardians!

There’s just one catch.  That “hottest ticket” is just a meal ticket, and beneath the makeup these ultimate headbangers are hired doppelgangers who don’t even LIKE what they do!  Jaggi is actually Wada, who wants to play Glam Rock, Camus is Nishida, an anime fan with an appalling weakness for curry and NSFW videos, and Krauser is… oh the shame…  street-singing Soichi Negishi, whose dreams of singing happy pop seem hopelessly doomed by the success of his rage-fueled alter ego!   Worse, he can’t even tell anyone who Krauser is.  Not even the girl he likes, who HATES DMC!  Will rage against the corporate machine consume Negishi’s tortured soul?  Is there life after Death Metal?  What it’s like to put your head in a jet engine and turn UP the volume?  Find out as angst, amps and anarchy collide in DETROIT METAL CITY!

Format:             DVD, BD

SYNOPSIS: Yoshiharu Sagara thought he knew his Japanese history backwards and forwards, but when he inexplicably finds himself in the past, everything he thought he knew was wrong and he’s in a very different history altogether!  Because not only is this timeline’s version of the legendary (and very male) Oda Nobunaga now the cute (and very female) Oda Nobuna, but one of the first things Yoshiharu manages to accidentally accomplish is getting one of the Sengoku era’s most important historical figures killed!  Still, when you’re stuck in the past, have a semi-reliable knowledge of one possible future and there’s now a vacancy in the history books, what’s your best present course of action?  Aligning yourself with someone with the potential to become one of the most powerful warlords in any of Japan’s possible histories might not be a bad start.  Provided, of course, that you can keep yourself from becoming too intimately involved in the cloak and dagger action during a time when the cloaks cover body armor and the daggers are paired with multiple swords!  But that’s just part of the risk you assume when your history becomes her story and you join THE AMBITION OF ODA NOBUNA!

A few days ago, Game Informer posted and then quickly retracted a story about a Final Fantasy XV demo. That act right there all but confirmed this story to be true but today, Square-Enix made it official. Come 2015, the world at large will get to test out the latest in the long running JRPG series for themselves.

The downloadable demo will be released alongside Final Fantasy Type-O HD which will be out on March 17, 2015 in North America and March 20, 2015 for Europe. The demo is called “Episode Duscae” and it will let players try out some of the opening parts of the game. The progression of these moments have been altered from those of the main game to make it suitable for a demo.

What’s interesting here is that players will be able to get the demo “for free” with a voucher code inside of Type-O HD. What does that mean exactly? Will those who don’t buy Type-O have to pay for the demo? That wouldn’t sit well with a lot of people I imagine.

So there you have it, a piece of Final Fantasy XV is within reach. As a fan of the series, I’m very excited to get my hands on this. If the trailers we’ve seen of the game are any indication, then this is shaping up to be one of the best games in the series. I guess we’ll see how it turns out whenever it’s released.

Last week, Kojima teased Twitter with new Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid V related items that would be revealed at Tokyo Game Show. Now that TGS is here, the veil has been lifted (somewhat) on what Hideo was tantalizing us with.

Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way first. The Metal Gear Collection isn’t a video game at all but a new clothing line. This collection will have jackets, t-shirts, shirts and more with the Metal Gear Solid V logo on them. This is similar to the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker clothing line.

I think I can speak for the majority of MGS fans here when I say that this is disappointing. This isn’t a new HD collection for the current-gen consoles and this clothing line probably won’t make it over to the West.

Now let’s get to the good stuff, TRAILERS. This first one is an extended version of the mini preview that was posted last week. In this, we see new character, Quiet drop down into Mother Base and be escorted away by Big Boss’ men.

Before that, it appeared as if there would be an altercation between her and the MSF soldiers (included in the bunch were Kaz and Ocelot) but Boss is able to calm everyone down. I originally speculated that Quiet was infiltrating the base with the soldiers. It turns out that she was handing herself over to Big Boss.

This video comes to us from YouTuber, Kagayaki TGS 2014.

 

This next trailer is a nice and long one which takes place in an African jungle. If you’re getting flashbacks to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater then you’re not not alone as this is very reminiscent of it.

Here, we see Big Boss using new abilities. We see him rock climbing by using cracks on the side to scale it. This is of course made easier thanks to his robotic hand which can also be used to create a sonic wave which shows possible locations of enemy targets and to knock them out with an electric shock. He can also place an inflatable dummy of himself to distract foes or even use it to knock them off ledges when the dummy is released. Boss can also blow up wooden bridges (useful for killing enemies which are on it) and throw molotov cocktails as well.

The most exciting thing about this trailer is that Quiet is actually one of your allies and can help you during missions. She can be sent to any vantage point and mark targets for you. She can snipe your foes and can even do so at your command so that you two can simultaneously take out foes and not raise alarms. She can also snipe grenades you throw into the air which will be deflected and hit targets (in this case, an attack helicopter).

This comes to us from Rajman Gaming HD on YouTube.

 

These trailers show us that The Phantom Pain is going to be a very big game, bigger than we even could have imagined. Kojima and company have gone all out to make a game that has a ton of features which will let players have a wide range of ways to complete their missions. It’s hard to tell exactly what is happening in the trailers because they’re both in Japanese but the footage speaks for itself: this game is going to be massive.

Great news my fellow PC gamer elitists, the Final Fantasy XIII series is coming to PC starting with Final Fantasy XIII itself. Final Fantasy XIII will hit both the Square Enix online store and Steam on October 9th, 2014.

Currently the Europe prices advertised are £10.99/€12.99 and you can pre-order the game right now. Pre-ordering will give you 10% off the overall price, so it’s definitely worth it. There’s no word on when Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will release on PC, but I’m sure we won’t have to wait too long.

Square Enix has been generous to the PC audience over the past few years, releasing older Final Fantasy titles along with Final Fantasy XIV on both Steam and the Square Enix store. With the Final Fantasy XIII series releasing on PC I’m going to make a prediction that we may see a Final Fantasy XV PC release alongside the console versions.

Here are the real questions; will these games be well optimised for the PC? Will we get to play around with graphics settings and make the game look as beautiful as ever? Will there be mod support? If Square Enix can give us a yes to all these answers then this could be something special. They’ve already confirmed the game will support Steam trading cards and achievements, which is a step in the right direction.

If you haven’t already then be sure to check out the brand new Final Fantasy XV trailer.

Final Fantasy XV has suffered a long development cycle since its 2006 announcement, and at times it seems like there will be no end in sight. Every now and then, Square Enix has released a stylized trailer to help fans rekindle their interest for the game, but these videos usually aren’t packed with bombshells of information. At this year’s TGS, however, Square Enix announced three new developments that should make things interesting for fans of Final Fantasy XV: a new director, an upcoming demo and  a new trailer.

According to Kotaku, Square Enix decided it was time for a new director because Nomura was juggling two ambitious projects at once: Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III. Since Square Enix claims it wants Final Fantasy XV to be “the highest quality Final Fantasy title to date”, and both franchises are considerably popular, the company decided to hand the directorial reigns over to Hajime Tabata. This is good news considering Nomura had originally put off development for Kingdom Hearts III until he finished Final Fantasy XV.

Next, Square Enix announced that players will soon be able to play a demo for Final Fantasy XV (about time). The catch is that players can only download the demo if they purchase the upcoming PSP title, Final Fantasy Type-0. Interestingly enough, both Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type-0, originally called Final Fantasy Verus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII respectively, were announced alongside Final Fantasy XIII as part of the Fabula Nova Crystalis series; it seems like a fitting way to introduce players to the demo. According to DualShockers, who pulled the info from the long-since deleted Gameinformer post, players will be able to get their hands on Final Fantasy Type-0, as well as the demo for Final Fantasy XV, on March 17, 2015.

Finally, Square Enix released a brand new trailer for Final Fantasy XV. No words are required for this one; just sit back and enjoy the polished visuals that you’ve probably come to expect from Square Enix’s trailers. Square Enix plans to release Final Fantasy XV in 2015 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Last week, we posted a story about how Destiny had shipped over $500 million to retail on day one. While that number was impressive, it wasn’t how much was actually sold to customers or how many copies the game has sold. Today we have an official answer.

Activision says that sales for the FPS/MMO hybrid have topped over $325 million which averages out to about five million copies sold. This puts Destiny on par with the other big Activision franchise: Call of Duty. The publisher also says that players have logged in over 100 hours for online play. Considering that this entire game is online-only, this last fact isn’t surprising.

Overall this is great news for both Bungie and Activision. It’s also good news for players since Destiny‘s success means it will continue to receive the support it needs. Bungie has a 10 year plan in place for the game and with sales like this, it looks more than likely that we’ll see the entire thing play out over the decade.

Destiny is currently available for PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

/// EA CEO Andrew Wilson Wants to Establish a “Player-First Culture” Within the Company

During the GamesBeat 2014 conference where EA CEO Andrew Wilson mentioned that the highest-rated games get the balance of innovation and polish “right,” the exec also cited one of the key priorities for the publisher with him at the helm, and it’s a “player-first culture.”

The first was really establish that player-first culture back inside the company…My belief is that in the future of our industry, in a world where there are more devices that play games, more people creating content to play on those devices, that the relationships that you have with the players are going to be the deciding factor between success and failure. Your ability to actually reach those players and deliver them entertainment is really going to be based on that relationship that you have with them.

Hello Gamers and Anime peeps,

Anime News Network has recently posted an article of an interview with, Hayao Miyazaki, famed creator of Studio Ghibli. This is not your ordinary interview with Miyazaki-sama, this interview was conducted last year in July of 2013 and recently transcribed on September 8th, 2014. Only with the approval of Studio Ghibli was this possible, the interview gives you a more in depth look at the creator/artist and his point of views with life, Japan and modern politics. In this interview, he describes his life during WWII, his father, his changing relationship with Japan, insights towards the Self-Defense Forces and postwar Japan politics and economy. He states these under the topics of:

  • I would have become a patriotic young man if I had been born just a bit earlier
  • My father produced parts for warplanes during the war
  • It was only in my 30’s when I took a second look at Japan
  • Since we have lied until now, we should continue lying
  • What is most important is how we change the structure of our economy
  • Do not do things that are in vogue

I am a huge fan of Studio Ghibli and its productions, as well as a fan of the man behind it all. This interview is long and extensive, and it’s interesting to hear his personal points on life, his experiences and what he thinks society should do and not take for granted. Because at one point in his life, he “came to truly hate Japan”, thinking, “I was born in a country that did stupid things”.

What do you think about Miyazaki-sama’s view? How has he influenced your life with his films? Let us know in the comments below!

Don’t miss out!

It’s always a good thing to stay on top of your health and well-being. Even for us video game enthusiast, we sometimes get so caught up in the games we know and love that we shut out the other aspects of our lives, some of which can be super important. Even when we know we have to take care of ourselves and be vigilant with our health, we don’t always move forward with that mindset. Late night gaming sessions with our friends and the thrill of online matches sweep us off our feet every time.

Have you ever wanted to build up a strong and fit body while still play online matches of Call of Duty as much as you want? Want to know what the best kinds of foods and drinks to help make your game skills better overall are? This is where I come in to help you out. I bring to you knowledge and wisdom to help you not only develop a stronger more fit body, but also embrace and blend together your passion for playing video games, anime, and everything otaku with living stronger.

This is what Gamers With Gains is all about. Helping all the video game players of the world become healthier and grow stronger in body and mind, and express the passion for their favorite hobby. I’ll be providing helpful tips and advice each week here on The Koalition that will give you the tools you need to be proud to be a gamer and live stronger.

So here are some videos that will help get you started moving in the direction of being a strong, focused, healthy gamer.

A Real RPG Elixir to Grow Stronger

Everything from body building, to creativity, to making top eight in a game tournament starts from within you and your being. Your body and what’s within it is just as important as your mind and how you adapt to different scenarios when playing your games.

What you put into your body can influence how you function, right down to your emotions and reactions. So I created a video about something that you can have every day that will help you grow stronger. Not only does it help increase your gaming skills both on and offline, but it also can rid your body of all the bad stuff that gets caught in in it each and every day. And the best part? This real Elixir is easy to obtain, much easier than you may believe.

 

Getting Your Gaming Posture Right

When we play our video games, we either sit in a chair or something similar, or we find a nice spot on the ground to focus on what’s happening on screen. We get so enthralled with what we are playing that we fail to notice what is happening to our bodies. Before we know it, we are stricken with heavy back pain and find ourselves walking around with a hunch-back posture.

Now, since nobody wants to end up like Quasimodo, I created a video with some ideas and thoughts on how to not only prevent being a hunch-back, but also give you the correct posture to have when playing your video games. Trust me, you’ll thank me later when you finish spending a few hours playing Destiny.

 

Training Begins. Time to LEVEL UP

Now we can’t have just nothing but talk when it comes to fitness. Growing stronger and physically fit requires ACTION. You have to build up a strong foundation for your body so everything else can fall into place nicely. A strong, healthy body leads to a strong and bold mind, which can also lead to more wins in the video games you play.

You have to walk the walk if you are going to talk about growing stronger and body building. So here is the first official Training Video that not only has some exercises that you can utilize in the gym to grow stronger, but has a nice dose of video game talk to compliment everything, including some topics on the new Resident Evil remake and Collectors Editions. What good is fitness for helping gamers without any sort of application or relation to video games? Seriously, what good is anything of the sort without it? But I digress.

As an added bonus for you all (and because this is the first official post here on The Koalition), I have a neat surprise at the end of the Training video that many of you may find interesting, and even appreciate if you are a fan of martial arts movies and nunchucks. Yeah thats right people… I said NUNCHUCKS

 

But that’s all for this week guys. After all, you can’t train and build up your body and skills without the most important part of training, which is that Rest Time. Check back next week for even more videos with tips and info to help you on your journey towards becoming a stronger gamer.

I encourage you to leave feedback and questions in the comment section here on The Koalition and in the videos, that way I can answer your questions in a new video and help you become an even stronger gamer than you could ever imagine.

Till next week everyone, Train Hard and Play Hard so we can all become Gamers With Gains.

Variety is the spice of life, and I’m applying that cheesy motto to this week’s issue of the Kickstarter Weekly. Each week I’ve tried to devote each issue to a specific theme, be it genre, style, or anything else; however, too many of these articles are RPG heavy. And while yes, one game on this list is an RPG and another has RPG elements, I believe this issue will be a return-to-form survey of what Kickstarter has to offer, all with a sense of style.

Poncho is a 2D puzzle platformer designed to make you reminisce on your childhood, Noct is a survival horror game about viewing survivors battling the darkness via a satellite’s view, and Age of Grit is all about making enough money to survive in a Steam Punk, Wild West setting. While I’m willing to provide more variety in my Kickstarer Weekly articles, I’m also curious to known which genre you would like to see more of.

 

Noct

Noct

Project by: c3sk

Goal:$22,000 (CAD)

Current Funds: $17,282 (CAD)

End: September 24, 2014

There is an interesting quote featured on Noct’s Kickstarter page that comes from Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Graham Smith: “Style does matter.” While the idea that gameplay takes priority over graphics still holds true today, I also wouldn’t want to play Gears of War if it had the same cover-based shooting but everything in it was placeholder graphics or rectangles. That’s a slight exaggeration, but I think that a sense of style can help distinguish a game tremendously, giving it its own identity even if it doesn’t look like it will break any genre conventions.

When I look at Noct’s kickstarter trailer, I see a game in which I can easily become lost in just because of how c3sk presents it. The world has been overrun by a group of hostile shadowy creatures known as the nocturnal, and unfortunately, the survivors must make their stand in a land of suffocating darkness. Since this world is so dark, players see it from a satellite which is capable of displaying each life form, human or shadow, as white outlines; the result is like watching the conflict between predator and prey on Animal Planet or a car chase on the News.

Of course, this view from the satellite ties in well with the top-down shooter aspects of Noct. This desolate wasteland is yours to explore, and as with similar RPGs, you need to find weapons, food, water, and other survival supplies. Oh, and while you’re at it, watch out for that giant skeleton thing that’s coming straight for you. These monsters are huge, and, unfortunately, mechanics are in place to limit your abilities. For instance, your field of vision is limited. Fortunately, you can gather a band of survivors to help you out in online and local multiplayer, although from the satellite view, I’d imagine it looks like ants trying to take down a larger insect.

But to me, it all comes back to the presentation. I love the satellite view, as it outlines just enough of the wreckage and inhabitants, protagonists or antagonists, to let me know that something terrible has happened in this world. This limited vision looks far more bleak than any Fallout game; it even reminds me a little bit of Silent Hill. It makes this top down shooter look otherwise unique, and I can’t wait to see if Noct can somehow balance the scares with the RPG mechanics.

Poncho

Project by: Delve Interactive

Goal:£22,500

Current Funds: £2,945

End: October 1, 2014

As with zombies, the post apocalypse is in, and I’m not sure if that will ever change. As always, you’ll find your games that adapt a similar view to the post apocalypse: a desolate wasteland where everyone becomes deplorable sociopaths with the exception of maybe the sole righteous protagonist, depending on his or her ability to make decisions. However, when done properly, the post apocalypse can be an interesting, colorful setting to explore, and Poncho follows this mindset.

Poncho is a robot who wakes up and finds himself stranded in the aforementioned colorful, post apocalyptic world. Poncho’s goal is simple: he wants to find his maker; however, humans have long since vanished, and only tribes of robots without purposes remain on the planet. Ultimately, Poncho will find the remaining humans, but we still don’t know about their end-game fate.

Poncho is a 2D sidescroller with puzzles and exploration. Delve Interactive wants to elicit childhood memories of exploring outside, and that is exactly what you’ll do as you search for useful items in the game. All of the robots and creatures coexist in an ecology, and your actions will affect their behavior towards Poncho. The main draw is that Poncho can not only move from left to right, but also foreground to background. This is not the first time I’ve seen a game use this concept, but I will admit that it provides many possibilities for interesting puzzles to solve.

Like any other Kickstarter story, Delve Interactive quit their jobs at (freaking) Capcom in order to create their dream game. They’ve also released several games for the iPhone, showing that they have the experience necessary to release this game on time. If you’re looking for a game that will help you relive your nostalgic memories similarly to FEZ, then maybe consider throwing a few bucks towards Poncho’s way.

Age of Grit

Project by: iqSoup

Goal:$12,000

Current Funds: $11,074

End: September 9, 2014

I’m not sure if Steam Punk will ever go out of style. The artwork and design of ships, weapons and other items always seem more interesting than, say, the latest iPod, and it only becomes more intriguing when artists blend the style with the Wild West. Age of Grit looks like a perfect example of a Science Fiction/Steam Punk hybrid that might intrigue those who are fans of Firefly or Cowboy Bebop.

Age of Grit features the same sort of atmosphere that I enjoy most about those aforementioned series. While the ships and gadgets look fantastical to me, I also can’t help but notice that certain things look old and need either to be fixed or replaced. This attention to detail makes the Captain’s desperate attempts to keep his ship floating feel more believable, letting us know that this adventure is not as clean as what’s depicted in games such as Mass Effect and or shows like Star Trek. The struggles are not necessarily about saving the world but for simply earning enough money to keep going.

Age of Grit is an RPG that focuses on ship-to-ship combat, which may interest fans of Skies of Arcadia. The twist is that all of the gauges you see in Steam Punk actually serve a utilitarian purpose, and keeping your eye on them is crucial for keeping your ship flying. The combat itself is turn based, and rather than expelling SP or MP, you end up creating pressure for your ship–the idea is to strategically outmaneuver your opponent’s attacks in order to avoid overheating the ship. The rest of the system is standard RPG affair, but this system helps create a more believable turn-based experience.

With approximately $11,000 of its $12,000 funding goal accumulated, it looks like Age of Grit will successfully bring its Wild West vision of Steam Punk to life. Still, it will take some time for this project to come to life, and there are plenty of stretch goals to meet. At the very least, check out Age of Grit’s Kickstarter page for some art and music that will help you get in the mood to explore this world.

Markus Persson, better known as ‘Notch’, has decided to leave Mojang and Minecraft after selling both to Microsoft for $2.5 billion. He wrote about this in a personal blog post.

“I don’t see myself as a real game developer. I make games because it’s fun, and because I love games and I love to program, but I don’t make games with the intention of them becoming huge hits, and I don’t try to change the world,” Says Persson. “Minecraft certainly became a huge hit, and people are telling me it’s changed games. I never meant for it to do either.”

He goes on to say that he became some sort of symbol and that he didn’t have the connection to his fans that he thought he did. He is referring to the negative responses from Minecraft users over a EULA agreement that disallowed server owners to sell in-game items that could affect gameplay. Persson didn’t understand this reaction and tweeted this in frustration:

He went on to say: “I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don’t understand, that I don’t want to work on, that keeps coming back to me. I’m not an entrepreneur. I’m not a CEO. I’m a nerdy computer programmer who likes to have opinions on Twitter.”

Persson now wants to work on small passion projects. He also says that if any just so happen to catch traction that he will most likely kill the project immediately.

While I can respect Persson for doing what his heart tells him and doing what he feels is best for him, it’s very easy for him to make this decision now that he’s rich. The people who are left behind at Mojang can’t just up and leave like he did or abandon projects if they become big. Yes, his intentions are admirable and leaving all of that success and money behind isn’t something most people would do but it isn’t like he’ll ever have to worry about money ever again. That’s just the truth.

We wish Persson luck on all of his future endeavors.

Week 9 for rhymes. Another Monday, another ill compilation.

Setting this week off is TDE’s very own Schoolboy Q sharing the mic with his (and one of my) favorite emcees of all time, Nas. Q’s hit single “Studio” has been burning up the airwaves and Nas chose this opportunity to announce his new project is on the way. His verse isn’t anything exciting, but “Studio (Remix)” is a banger nonetheless.

Rittz is on the list for a consecutive week with “Bounce”, another track from his impressive album Next To Nothing. We’ll be discussing the full record on the next Knights of the Turntable podcast, so stay tuned.

Capping off The Playlist with the Video of the Week is one of the best to ever do it, Rhymesayers artist Brother Ali. Featuring Bambu and newcomer MaLLy, Ali drops a brand new track titled “Home Away From Home”. The track serves as promotion for his Home Away From Home Tour that just may be coming to a city near you.

Childish Gambino, Saba, Gitta Thomas, and more all make appearances this week, including a surprise remix of Sam Smith’s “I’m Not The Only One” featuring ASAP Rocky. Check it out and let us know what your favorite (and least favorite) cut is. Also, feel free to share tracks you think should make the list next week. Hit the comment section down below!

Microsoft today announced that they have purchased Mojang, confirming recent rumors that they were looking to buy the Minecraft developer.

No official price has been announced, but it is believed to be a deal worth over $2 billion. Don’t worry thought PlayStation fans of the game, Phil Spencer said in the announcement that they will continue to make the game available to all platforms.

Here’s what he said:

At Microsoft, we believe in the power of content to unite people. Minecraft adds diversity to our game portfolio and helps us reach new gamers across multiple platforms. Gaming is the top activity across devices and we see great potential to continue to grow the Minecraft community and nurture the franchise. That is why we plan to continue to make Minecraft available across platforms – including iOS, Android and PlayStation, in addition to Xbox and PC.

Two billion is a lot of money for a developer, you’d have to assume that they will make Minecraft 2 now, in order to make some more money from the franchise. It’s hard to think that even a successful Minecraft 2 will earn them their money back. I hope they have a plan!

What do you think of the deal? Is it worth the money? Would you have liked to see Microsoft use this money elsewhere? Let me know in the comments below.

The hype for the National Football League season was heightened recently following the release of the latest entry in the Madden video game series: Madden NFL 15.

EA Sports’ newest game was released on August 26th and features everything you’d expect from the football series – stunning graphics, realistic gameplay and hugely detailed analytics of each team.

Defense is at the forefront of this year's Madden NFL experience.

Defense is at the forefront of this year’s Madden NFL experience.

There are a few surprises this time around though. It would appear that Madden NFL 15 has taken inspiration from the former underdog turned champion Seattle Seahawks football team. The squad silenced doubters everywhere when they earned a stunning 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos at Super Bowl XLVIII earlier this year. The team’s motto – defense wins championships – is reflected in the gameplay, and playing defensively is just as exciting as playing offensively in Madden NFL 15.

Another surprise that has been getting attention for all the wrong reasons is one hilarious glitch in the form of Cleveland Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey. When players take part in the Tennessee Titans Solo Challenge within the Madden Ultimate Team, the star appears as a tiny, dwarfed version of himself.

In reality, Kirksey stands at a healthy 6’2” and weighs in at 235lb, but looks like something out of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory in comparison to his fellow players. The glitch quickly made its way onto YouTube and fan blogs, but EA Sports gracefully took it with a pinch of salt by releasing the trailer embedded below.

EA Sports also released a statement on their official blog telling fans: “This weekend only, Madden Ultimate Team players can experience the Tiny Titan for themselves. All you need to do is log into Madden 15 and look for the direct link to the Ultimate Teams Weekly Challenges. #TinyTitan will be waiting.”

Glitches aside, this year’s Madden NFL does well to address some serious gameplay issues that plagued its predecessors. Loading screens are quicker, presentation has been improved and players’ movements are far more realistic. Linebackers have also been improved, making a pass in the middle of the field is far more true to life, and defensive backs no longer tag along behind receivers at all times.

The game’s analytics also provide a very true to life sporting experience. Examples of this range from the defensive, such as how many yards a certain play has yielded, to statistics that help players decide which tactics will catch opposing quarterbacks off-guard. Akin to the betting sports culture of today, the game provides players with the opportunity to look at every move they make and consider how it will impact their odds of winning.

Glitches aside, Madden NFL 15 truly is one of the better entries in the series in a long time.

Glitches aside, Madden NFL 15 truly is the best entry in the series so far.

Of course, no new game release is perfect and Madden NFL 15 does suffer a little from some awkward movements that have limbs flying everywhere. However on a pure aesthetic basis, the graphics more than make up for most of these things. EA Sports still have a little ways to go if they’re to make their Madden series flawless, but by addressing last year’s errors, they are indeed one step closer.

Ariana Grand’s significant other has been MIA from the music scene for a good bit, but apparently he’s been working and has resurfaced under the employ of Roc Nation. Suddenly, the interwebz are now blessed with 4 new tracks from Detroit’s very own Big Sean and they don’t disappoint…mostly. The E40 featured “I Don’t Fuck With You” had Sean and E40 do fairly well on the mic, but the DJ Mustard/Kanye West production is a bit annoying. Specifically, the DJ Mustard part is trash if I’m correct in assuming Kanye supplied the beat switch at the end. The track would have been significantly better with that last beat being the dominant one.

“Juke/Jit” and “4th Quarter”  are the standout releases for sure, and he drops a pretty impressive verse at the end of the later. Ultimately, though, these 4 tracks are a neutral surprise for me. They’ll certainly garner some buzz for Bigity Big while under new management, so look for a new project to be announced in the near future.

Hello Gamers

Here’s a little something to help your awesome skills at gaming! iMP is proud to announce the release of their latest product innovation called “Trigger Treadz”. Trigger Treadz can be placed on to the original PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controller triggers which will provide you with increased grip and comfort during gameplay.

Trigger Treadz utilize a high quality material that provide the gamer with an enhanced gaming experience by helping to reduce the effect of sweaty fingers slipping off the controller triggers in heated gaming sessions and reducing pressure on trigger fingers. In my opinion, these would work perfect for me because sometimes I find myself emerged in a game so intensely that I sweat and grip the controller hard to the point that I need to take a break after an hour. Which sucks because I know I can keep going.

ps4_pack copy xbox_one_pack copy

Trigger Treadz are simple to apply and come in a pack of 4 with 2 styles per pack including a slicker Racing Rubber and a chunkier All Terrain grip. Trigger Treadz can also be switched easily if you feel like a change of tread.

Trigger Treadz represent a great add-on sale with all consoles, first party controllers and are a perfect added value bundle offer with selected game titles.

Get Traction on the Action!

Dean Harvey, iMP Managing Director said “Trigger Treadz are a great low-cost enhancement for your gaming controllers, providing improved comfort and grip during those heated gaming sessions! Response from gamers is that Trigger Treadz feel great and enhance feel and control.”

iMP Trigger Treadz for PS4 and Xbox One is available now at selected stores and e-tailers or direct at www.triggertreadz.com with FREE UK P+P for a limited time!

Starting retail price is about £4.99/€5.99/$6.99 for 4 Trigger Treadz. Make sure to pick some of these bad boys to help improve your skills.

In addition to this announcement, gamers can pre-order Dying Light from the official website will receive a free DLC mode called, Be the Zombie. This DLC is a competitive asymmetric multiplayer mode where you invade other players’ games as the Night Hunter, an ultimate zombie with a unique set of deadly skills. By playing as the Night Hunter, you turn into a fast, agile and dangerous predator, whose objective is to hunt down human survivors.

The creators of Dying Light recently explained the game’s revolutionary Natural Movement system in the first Dev Diary video, recently released (and included here again in case you missed it). Designed internally by Techland, Natural Movement empowers the player to traverse the fictional city of Harran with unprecedented ease and precision, seamlessly connecting parkour-style moves with brutal fighting.

Double Fine’s Hack ‘n’ Slash has been readily available on Steam Early Access for some time now, but yesterday the company finally released 1.0–the version that’s sold through the regular Steam store. To celebrate the official release, Double Fine announced a sale for the game as well as two new features.

The first new feature in version 1.0 of Hack ‘n’ Slash is the the rest of the game–namely the final tower. Players who have been playing the Early Access version will be able to immediately climb the tower with their progress in check.

The second feature for Hack ‘n’ Slash is the source code. The modding community will be able to mold the code into their own creations, which is fitting considering the game’s subject matter.

You can currently purchase Hack ‘n’ Slash for $13.99 (originally $19.99 with 33% discount). The sale lasts until September 16, 2014.
