  • Primal Carnage is an online multiplayer team-based combat arena. Now while that sounds incredibly specific it can be simplified down to a team-based first and third person shooter. Designed by Lukewarm Media and published by Reverb Publishing, this $14.99 PC game was released in October 2012 on Steam, Amazon, Gamestop, and more. Primal Carnage is running on the Unreal Engine 3 and does a wonderful job utilizing some of it's capabilities. And with dinosaurs running mayhem on a military controlled island, I can't think of a better engine to show exactly what Lukewarm Media was made of. Let's dive into the hard facts of the review.

  • If you're a Youtube watcher, I can assume you have seen many things. You have more than likely seen a hilarious Jenna Marbles video. Maybe you have seen Steve Kardynal dress as Katy Perry and lip sync to “Peacock”? And without a doubt, you'e heard the wondrous baritone singing of Tay Zonday. But for a little over a year, an incredibly talented violinist has played her way into the hearts of millions with medley from The Lord of the Rings, The Legend of Zelda, and The Phantom of the Opera. I am talking about Lindsey Stirling and those medleys are just the tip of the iceberg. Originally making it into the Youtube scene in 2007, her popularity didn't truly kick off until 2010 when she placed as a quarter-finalist on America's Got Talent. She was known as the “Hip Hop Violinist” and she earned that title with a very active performance and upbeat energy that teamed well with her musical style.

  • With the new year, people can expect several things: Resolutions, tax season, and best of all, video game announcements. This year is no exception with possibly one of the biggest titles, regardless of how far away it may be. The ever popular franchise Pokémon has just announced the newest additions “X” and “Y”.

  • After hosting what may have been the best eSports event in history, Riot Games is in a position to do anything they want. On October 13, 2012, in Los Angeles, California, Riot hosted the League of Legends World Championship, and it was incredible. From the live statues of League “champions”, to the amazing guest satisfaction, Riot made sure to make this event one worth attending. And 8,000 people couldn't agree more as they packed into the Galen Center on that Saturday morning. In only their second season,

  • New Orleans LA’s own Goatwhore has established themselves as one of the most diligent and ferocious workhorses in the American Metal movement.  This fits perfectly into Goatwhore’s breed of Blackened/Death Metal on their latest album “Blood for the Master.”  This is pure, unadulterated Satan being filtered into your ear holes.

  • I’m just going to say it. 2012 is the year of Metal. Between Anathema’s
soulful expression of emotions in Weather Systems and Meshuggah’s lumbering
monster of an album in Koloss, and just about every other metal album release I
didn’t think we’d get to hear a better Metal album.

  • When Dragonforce first hit BIG in the US, America couldn’t get enough of “Through the Fire and the Flames,” after beating Guitar Hero 3.  What made it so good was that it was FAST!  The entire Inhuman Rampage album was fantastic because it was FAST.  If there is one word I have to describe Dragonforce’s new album The Power Within it would be…  Well, FAST
