until_dawn-2599241

Just last month, we discovered that Supermassive Games’ upcoming horror title had a summer release window. Now it seems we may have an actual release date for Until Dawn. According to Hardcoregamer, who spotted listings on Amazon.de, MediaMarkt, and Spielegrotte, the highly anticipated title will release on June 24.

Until

For now even with three different sites having the same listing, take this with a grain of salt. At least until we have an official confirmation from Sony or the developers.

Stay tuned.

Stay your Blade, The Witcher 3 has Been Delayed…Again

Witcher-3-Wild-Hunt-Bild-9

Despite assuring fans their game would not see another delay, CD Projekt Red has announced today that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been delayed for another 3 months.

May 19, 2015 is now the new date to mark on your calendars. According to a prepared statement from the Polish developer, “The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production. Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected.”

You can read the full open letter to the fans below.

Dear Gamers, May 19th, 2015.

Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game. We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.

The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production. Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected. When we release the most important game in our studio’s history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly.

With this in mind, we took another look at current workloads and what they mean for the team. Even though everyone is working at full speed, we concluded that we need another 12 weeks, so we are shifting the release date of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to

We owe you an apology. We set the release date too hastily. It’s a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that. So, we apologize and ask for your trust.

Thank you for the all support you show us on a daily basis. We truly do appreciate it. It has fueled us in our passion since the start and will continue to do so.

This marks the second delay for the title, since the first announcement seven months ago. You can always play the board game to until then.

MegaRan The Philadelphia Way – New Song Released As Netflix Documentary Kickstarter 153% Funded

MegaRan The Philly Way

WOW! We have surpassed the goal in under a week! Thank you so much! I’ve set up TWO stretch goals and even dropped some new music to celebrate. read on for that.

So here’s the deal: I’d like to get vinyl going for the new album next year, and so with a stretch goal of $8000, we can do that.

THANK YOU for $7000 on Kickstarter!!

Music Arrangement of “Gonna Fly Now” from the Rocky (1976) Film
Lyrics Written and Performed by Mega Ran
Trumpet Performed by David Cholley
Artwork by Chris Flocco (flocco.deviantart.com)
PRODUCED BY MUSTIN™

As anyone who’s lived in Philly long enough knows, life as a fan of Philadelphia sports teams is full of ups and downs, and mostly downs. With the 76ers tanking, the Phillies and Flyers going nowhere for a while, and recent key injuries to a few Eagles, despite a great start, this season may shape up to be similar to most.

Philly born former teacher Raheem Jarbo, who records hip-hop under the name Mega Ran, perhaps best known for his “Jeremy Lin Rap” that hit scored viral success plus ESPN, USA Today coverage in 2012, is back with a new track that’s less celebratory, but just as heartfelt.

With references to The Curse of Billy Penn, Allen Iverson’s famous “Practice” rant, the demolition of Veterans Stadium and the 2008 Phillies World Series team, and a backing beat comprised of Bill Conti’s famous “Gonna Fly Now,” this rap song is sure to make the average Philly sports fan feel good, or maybe want to fight.

I ALSO have plans to release a new MEGAMAN album on Christmas Day for you guys, if and only if we hit $9000!

Mega Ran’s Director’s Cut DVD and a New Album for 2015

Hit up the kickstarter and either back, or share, I appreciate it greatly!
