The Eternal Bond

The Ceremony of Eternal Bonding was announced for Square Enix’s growing MMO, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, back at E3 2014. After a few months, the ceremony was released in the game; players were able to start getting hitched when “Dreams of Ice – Patch 2.45″ was released in December 2014. The marriage system has no restrictions outside of the fact that you can only bond with one person. Otherwise you can marry anyone regardless of his or her race, gender, or Grand Company alliance. It also is a completely free service to all players but of course, there are premium packages available for those who want a bit more.

The String Arcade: Enrich your Gaming Experience

Free Track Sample (“Grasswalk” – Plants vs Zombies) Music is a vital part of our lives. Regardless if you consider yourself a music lover or not, I can guarantee that nearly everyone has at least one or two songs that they hold near and dear to their heart. Music entertains us but it also enlightens us. A stroke of a bow or a few strums on a guitar can tell you more about an individual’s deepest thoughts and emotions than any words can. Even if you are not musically inclined, the songs you share with others reveal more about you...

[Opinion Piece] A New Generation of Devotion

Adult humor in children’s cartoons is not anything new. For decades, sexual innuendos have existed in the confines of animated shorts and films. Typically it is believe that hidden sexual content is meant to appeal and keep the interest of older audiences to help drive the studio’s revenue by appearing to have a sense of depth and maturity to its plot. It has been also said that such content is sprinkled in to entertain parents who are watching these programs with their children. Or perhaps the start of sexual innuendos spawns from the show’s creators just having fun with their...

[Review] Abducted: The Ultimate Mindf*ck

Whether you are an adrenaline junky or just want a pretty girl to grab onto your arm in fear, humanity is drawn to horror films. The twisted stories keep us guessing while the sick situations entertain our darker sides. We enjoy watching every day, normal individuals unexpectedly be forced into a terrifying predicament as they fight for their survival. However, horror movies as of recent have become a bit stale, at least in my opinion. Nowadays we have a lot of mockumentary-style films with over exaggerated paranormal phenomenon, overused zombie plots, and generic hack ‘n’ slash gore feasts. The films...

Miscommunication: Gaming Headsets and the PS4

Earlier last week, news regarding the compatibility between gaming headsets and the PlayStation 4 surfaced. Multiple gaming headset companies  have come clean in saying that most of their current products would work with Sony’s new system, but not right at the system’s launch.  While the PlayStation 4 does come with Blu-tooth support, there are currently some issues that need to be worked out before certain products will be able to connect. At least, that is what we have been able to discover from reading between the lines with Sony’s indirect response to GameInformer regarding concerns about being able to use...

[Review] Sharknado: Everything You Never Knew You Wanted

When it comes to entertainment, people want one of two things. They either want an artistically masterpiece that leaves them in complete awe and inspires them or they want something that kills time that is better than watching the grass grow. Sharknado is going to give you a loving marriage between both desires but not quite to the degree that one might expect. This Syfy made-for-TV movie will never go down on record as one of the great films, but it is becoming social media phenomenon. It is a simple film that gives viewers exactly what they want.
