James Hetfield rocks out to Ghost

Metal Insider - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 13:32
Ghost is arguably more popular than ever right now, and with them having opened for Iron Maiden for the past few months, there’s probably a whole new audience that saw them live for the first time. On the other hand, many have been fans since the first album, Opus Eponymous. Among those people is Metallica’s James […]

Xbox One X Console Should Finally Be Available To Pre-order Soon

Just Push Start - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 11:34
Even though the Xbox One X console was first revealed at E3 2017, gamers weren’t able to pre-order it yet. Well that is about to change as Microsoft says things should be set in motion very soon. A Twitter user asked Phil Spencer (Xbox Head) when Xbox One X console pre-orders will be available. Spencer replied: “Our plan is set for this. All approvals are done so now just landing the announce with all the info, won’t be too much longer“. The console is of course an upgrade to the standard and slim versions. It is able to output some games at native 4K at 60fps. Not to mention some games will also get visual upgrades when it comes out. The console itself is out this November 7th, 2017. It might be only a matter of time until retail and online stores will open pre-orders. It will cost you $499 over in North America.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Beats Splatoon 2 In UK Game Charts

Just Push Start - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 10:30
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy continues to be a top seller in the UK. It has managed to beat out the debut of Splatoon 2 over on the Nintendo Switch. Reviving Crash was a smart move after all. As noted by GFK Chart-Track, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy took the top spot again as Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age dropped to number 7 on the list. Demand for Crash continues to be high which is excellent for a PS4 exclusive (at the moment). Splatoon debuted at number 2 and is the 3rd biggest launch for a Nintendo Switch game. It falls behind Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and of course The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. With huge sales worldwide, Activision will be crazy not to commit to an entirely new Crash video game. Hopefully a remaster of Crash Team Racing is on the cards too!

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Review

Just Push Start - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 09:02
Stormblood is the second expansion to the critically-acclaimed Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. The newly released expansion further explores the lore of Eorzea and the land of the Far East while adding a bunch of new content like new jobs, new scenario quests, and new raids. Compared to the last expansion released, which was Heavensward, Stormblood offers much more enjoyable content and jobs that adds more variety to those who play as a damage dealer, while staying true to what fans have loved in Final Fantasy XIV. The story of Stormblood starts off where Patch 3.57 ended. With the Scions of the Seventh Dawn now facing the threat of Omega and with the increased tension between the Empire and the Ala Mhigans, the Warrior of Light sets on an adventure with Lyse, and the rest of the Scions to liberate the city-state of Ala Mhigo while finding ways to take down Omega. The theme this time is much different as aside from the conflicted-war plot, there are a lot of emotions to be felt in the story and It’s much better than Heavensward. A lot of the stories told in the expansion tell more of the Ala Mhigan people and the people of the Kugane in the Far East and their customs. To date, Final Fantasy XIV still has that spot for the best well-told story in an MMO game, thanks to the well developed plot of Stormblood. Aside from the new story, there are two new jobs as well introduced in Stormblood. For those who are getting tired of the DPS jobs that they currently are using, the two new jobs; Red Mage and Samurai are available when you buy the expansion. From the two new jobs available, I enjoyed playing Red Mage more. While the rotation is much more bearable than Samurai, the Red Mage deals massive damage and conveys them in a stylish way. As for the Samurai, it’s currently one of the most strongest DPS class as of this moment, but sadly, I find it very hard to play as you have to build bunch of combos before dealing massive damage to an enemy. It takes time but if you are really looking to provide raw damage in FFXIV, consider leveling a Samurai up. Not to mention, the Samurai job quests has currently the most interesting story. In terms of main quests and reaching to the new level cap of 70, it can take you a long time, especially if you are doing sidequests that can be dull at times, though there are ways to speed things up liking running the dungeons over and over again or play through the Palace of the Dead, an instanced dungeon released in Heavensward. The end-game content like raids and extreme modes of the primal will not be playable until you do scenario quests, so regardless if you rushed yourself to 70, you still have to beat the story to see the end-game content. For those who have been...
