IMG_2524The next generation of Skullcandy gaming headsets are here with the SLYR Xbox One and Halo Edition, exclusive to Xbox One both headset are gorgeous and perform as good as they look.

It’s been awhile since I’ve last reviewed the first wave of Skullcandy gaming headsets for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Which were all really good headsets so to be honest i was expecting the same products with a fresh coat of paint. Damn was i wrong, everything was improved from the mic boom to the the sound quality and everything in between.

Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 8.37.10 AM

Director Zach Snyder seems to want to accomplish in breaking the internet for DC comics fans and movie enthusiast alike. He took to twitter, something he is very known for, to reveal the official first look of actor Jason Momoa in his full Aquaman outfit for the upcoming and highly anticipated movie, Batman v. Superman Dawn Of Justice. In my personal opinion I think this take on the King of the Sea is fantastic. They are definitely keeping the “darker” motif Snyder established  ever since he directed Man Of Steel. Batman V. Superman is set for release on March 25th, 2016. Take a look at the picture of this awesome looking Aquaman and tell me our thoughts on it in the comment box below. Enjoy.

287192-BOIfront

If you’re a fan of Binding of Isaac then you’ll like this new that new DLC will be made. The DLC is being developed by co-creator and programmer Florian Himsl. This is really cool since the original is still fun, even after BOI: Rebirth is out. Many fans, including me will be looking for this. But sadly this is all the news out right now. From what I’ve read the game itself will be getting harder, and hopefully more enemies.

Twitch-Logo-720

Recently Twitch.tv has added royalty free music. This is the cause of last years ban of unauthorized third-party audio from saved VOD’s. This is good news for those people that like to blast music over their speed running broadcast. Now instead of playing third-party music, you have a library of over 500 songs to play. No sandstorm is not on the list, sadly.

With this comes Twitch’s new dedicated music streams. You can find this through the Twitch Music Beta page. Many people might use this, or maybe none at all. I for one will be using this, a lot.

Grand Theft Auto V PC Delayed

239381-G1

It shouldn’t been a surprise to most people that Rockstar has delayed GTA V for PC. The delay is all the way till March 24th, but in a way this is good, We won’t get a glitchy possibly broken game. With other games recently releasing and them needing patches on release day. Even with this delay, good news is here. We will still be getting Grand Theft Auto Online Heist. Rockstar says that Heist will be coming in the following weeks. This is a huge step in a way, at first PC was told that it wouldn’t happen. Now we’re getting a delay to sharpen the game.

Rockstar Has Re-Confirmed GTA V PC Release

239381-G1

Recently Rockstar has re-confirmed Grand Theft Auto’s PC release for January 27th. They made the statement when someone posted on the forums asking if the game is still coming out or if it has been delayed. Rockstar replied “GTA V will be coming out on January 27th. We gave not announced any changes to the date at this time.”

This seems like Rockstar might make some last minute changes to the release date of GTA V. Maybe fixing bugs in the game before release or just not thinking it is ready at last minute. Steam  still has the release date as ” Early 2015″ even though the games date has been announced. Maybe Rockstar doesn’t want to announce that it will be delayed yet. Or maybe Steam is having a mess up?

The simpler times of Borderlands might be returning onto next gen. Ever want to go back to the original? but don’t have last gen? 2k might make this happen. A shined up new version.

Borderlands Remastered Edition appeared on the listing on the Australian Classification Board’s website. The name indicates that the game will be a visually boosted version of the 2009 version that kicked of the loot-shooting franchise. Though this isn’t listed on Gearbox’ website under development. Gearbox and 2k are listed as the authors, the same authors behind Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Tales From The Borderlands. This will hold us all over for a possible Borderlands 3?

Also a few other sites emulators no longer work as well, along with their roms. Nintendo, like most companies want their money if people are playing their games.

A few smaller sites have been taken down completely as of right now, but I’m sure the people who really care about, having emulators and roms out for the public will keep them open. This post is just for some people who wanted to play the games from when they were younger. But now they can’t.
