On September 28, Square Enix announced that Skrillex and Hikaru Utada will be collaborating to write and produce a new song for the upcoming — and highly-anticipated and long-awaited — JRPG, Kingdom Hearts 3. The track, titled ‘Face my Fears’, will open the game when it comes out early next year. Some minor background: Grammy Award winning Skrillex has been a long-time fan of the game franchise and has produced remixes of Hikaru Utada’s previous songs, including ‘Don’t Think Twice.’ Continue reading “The Opening Theme to ‘Kingdom Hearts 3’ to be Penned by Hiraku Utada and…Skrillex?!?!”
So, if you pre-ordered Fallout 76 at a participating retailer, then you’re very, highly likely that you’ll get a shot to try the beta once it rolls out this October. The beta — cleverly referred to as the “Break-it Early Test Application,” or “B.E.T.A. — will clearly provide an eyeful of its testers, since Bethesda announced that the beta “will be the full game and all your progress is saved for launch.” That. Is. AWESOMESAUCE!!

Rockstar Games is removing a number of songs in Grand Theft Auto IV due to music licensing issues, as a pretty-large patch for the game started to go live this past weekend, resulting in eliminating A LOT of songs across all the radio stations. For example, the Vladivostok FM station was predicted to be particularly hard hit, and that turns out to be very true. In the place of some of the missing tracks, Rockstar will add a few more newer, lesser-known Russian songs, mostly by Seryoga.

Huh? Whaaa? What happened? What did I miss? Ok, this is one of those things that’s both FOR me and NOT for me. You see, I was a fan of the Sega Dreamcast (despite not owning one; I played on a friend’s console) and of Shenmue when it was released (again, I played it on a friend’s Dreamcast). I even got my hands on the Xbox port of Shenmue II despite not having an Xbox at the time; yeah, I had it pretty bad. based just on that alone, imagine how much I fanboyed when the Shenmue III crowdfunding campaign was announced a couple of years ago. Anyway, SEGA recently announced at FES 2018 that HD ports of Shenmue and Shenmue II are being brought over to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in North America and Europe, while being exclusive on PlayStation 4 only in Japan.

Given the lack of attention that Valve gives to the Half-Life game series, it comes to a minor shock when at least ONE HUMAN BEING at the company is keeping an eye on the iconic and legendary 1998 first-person shooter. This past Tuesday, the original game got patched, and before you ask, it looks to have NOTHING to do with Half-Life 3, an announcement of Half-Life 3, or the existence of Half-Life 3. **teardrop**
Google is soon going to introduce an update on June 28th (for consumers) to its cloud storage service Google Drive, which will allow you to backup your data by selecting certain folders on your computer and syncing them to their respective folders rather than copying them onto one folder on Drive. The service is being called Backup & Sync, and if you don’t have an offsite cloud backup storage plan (you should have one; I’ll get to that later), you’ll have little-to-no excuse. While more higher-rated data backup services like Crashplan and Backblaze exist, Google’s offering is more accessible and easier to dive into.
