With a little less than a week to go before its release, more screenshots have surfaced for The Evil Within’s second story DLC. The two new screens (Above and below), feature protagonist Juli Kidman over looking a ruined Krimson City.
Kidman still seems to be armed with only her trusty flashlight and nothing else.
The Evil Within: The Consequence will release on April 21, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. You can read our review of part-one, ‘The Assignment’ here.
We’re back from our brief Easter Holiday Vacation and we share our opinions on the goings on of the past week including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and what we think of it so far, Black Ops 3 and everything there is to know about it up to this point, Not A Hero from Devolver Digital + Roll7 and its current exclusivity to Steam, WB Games and Capcom arguing on Twitter over whether Mortal Kombat has more lifetime sales or Street Fighter (more like WB Games getting called out for false advertising the MK series in general, just by a hair), and our own confirmation that Yes, H1Z1 is still coming to PS4 (eventually), as well as some very inspiring news from the world of Tech as a brighter future approaches.

Hello there all!
We are happy to have you here again, this time to share a background story of one our staff members who’s life got turned around through gaming.
For one gamer it all started in 1995 with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Making hours on end with the Lion King set a path open for freedom of creativity, meeting well-spirited people and having tons of fun.
This is the story of ChronicGalaxy and his gaming past.
“I have been asked to share my gaming history with you, the reader!
As many of you know gaming goes back quite far now, and we have seen developments beyond our wildest dreams. From starting out with a basic concept in 2D to full open worlds in magnificent and breath-taking visuals, we as gamers have witnessed the beauty of development.
The gaming industry has had a lot of negative feedback from concerned parents across the world, yet it also has a wonderful side to it. For me this wonderful side changed my entire life.
Some people look at me as a geek, which I fully admit I am, which I’m proud of today.”
It wasn’t always the case for the young gamer, who sheds light on the introvert person he once was.
“Though proud as I am now to be a geek, I had my fair share of criticism in life for just playing videogames. People told me I was wasting my life away, while all I could think of was to get back behind the controller and into the magnificent virtual world I became familiar with. I can remember that I thought people were right in a sense at one point, because the more criticism I got, the more it started to feel as if I was indeed wasting my life away.
This alone had the effect that I didn’t feel the need to interact with people, because videogames didn’t judge you for what you loved doing. It took me quite some years to crawl out of this, which the games I played helped with. Games such as Final Fantasy VII for the Playstation 1, Kingdom Hearts for the Playstation 2 and Minecraft for the Xbox 360 helped me release the fury I had for the world, and helped me gain the creativity I have today.”
Though it wasn’t the end goal, this gamer in particular gained a lot out of gaming.
“I have played on most platforms, some platforms being frustrating and most being amazing. I have met people from different countries, learned about the good sides of humanity and learned to communicate through gaming. For me, this opened many windows of opportunities, including this one: Being able to write and share my story with you. This is my gratitude towards gaming, the lessons I learned and the people I met – it is truly a remarkable and beautiful thing which I plan to never give up.”
We could not agree more! Thank you for taking the time to write this, and as a viewer; thank you for taking the time to read this. We’ll see you next time!

Deadpool VS Deathstroke
MegaRan AKA Random is best known for his jump into the role of Mega Man and helping to launch Nerdcore as a genre alongside artists like MC Frontalot. When the album Black Materia came out, it shocked the video game world and blew up the world touring indie artist’s fan-base with Final Fantasy 7 fanatics who couldn’t get enough of Ran’s conversion of what was once a classic masterpiece video game saga into the feeling of that same story taking place in real life. Through voicing each character’s deepest unspoken emotions and embracing that exposure of FF7’s inner conflicts / spiritual themes, Ran proved that video games and hip hop belong together. If you haven’t heard it yet, take a listen below now:
Now the artist known as Random is offering the chance for your favorite game to see that same metamorphosis. One backer of the Mega Lo Mania Director’s Cut DVD Kickstarter has already purchased it, and I can’t wait to see which game they suggest for Random to bring to life.
An EP of 4-5 tracks will be created with executive producer credits given to the backer as well as copyright license ownership and the decision on blessing the project for mass release or keeping it for yourself (an unprecedented value proposition in music that you’ll likely never see again) for just $900 which also nets the backer Mega Lo Mania Director’s Cut, Random’s 2015 album, (digital downloads of both and physical copies), a shout out on Twitter (Random has tens of thousands of fans), and a bunch more (all on top of actually getting to executive produce and own your own MegaRan Video Games Hip Hop project)!!! You can bump it up to FULL ALBUM (9 tracks at least) for $2,000.
Or for just $250 you can get K Murdock and MegaRan to do a song about your favorite game!
(6 slots remaining)
Like I said this is the type of opportunity you won’t see twice. At the time of this writing, there’s only 33 hours left to accept such an awesome offer. Help Random distribute his Documentary to his fans all over the world, and become an Executive Producer of an incredible album at the same time.
Update w/ Disclosure: I decided to back the Kickstarter for MegaRan’s Documentary to hit Netflix and other distributors. As according to our new RGN Public Ethics Policy, I will no longer be reporting on MegaRan’s work in an Evaluative Manner (i.e. Reviews) and will have another author Reviewing the work whereas I will be allowed to continue Informative Reporting (non-evaluative, i.e. News). If you have any feedback on this Ethics Policy, please comment on this article below or on our Policy itself and we’ll be sure to take your feedback into high regard. – Jon Ireson, Editor-In-Chief at RealGamerNewz.com
