Mega Ran 2014 Year In Gaming

On this New Year’s Eve Edition of #RealGamerMusic – This year was such a wild ride, from losses to gains, from good times to pain. Random AKA MegaRan speaks on everything 2014 as our industry’s heritage turns the next page to 2015.

“XBOX price cuts, but that Wii doe
had everybody out searching for Amiibos
Phil fish went ham on Twitter and snapped-
Used the classic excuse-” i musta been hacked
Speaking of hacked, we all got clowned
When Xbox live and PSN kept going down
Amazon grabbed twitch for 900 million
Shadow of Mordor was great, till the ending”

The Evil Within Comic Releasing This Month

Tew_boxman_670x300-680x365

On August 27th, 2014 Titan Comics is releasing a comic book prequel for The Evil Within. Written and illustrated by Ian Edginton and Alex Sanchez, it will be the first of a four-part mini-series preluding the game.

Surprisingly, the protagonist will not be Sebastian Castellanos of the main title, but a college student named Dana Robinson. Dana wakes to find herself alone in a world of horrors where she must overcome her fears and nightmarish enemies while continuing the search for a missing friend.

A New Elgato Gaming Capture Device Could Be On The Way

elgato2

Earlier today Elgato, creators behind the popular gaming capture devices, sent out a tweet teasing what could be the reveal of a newer model.

 

Now it could be anything but the current models can’t stream or capture content at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second.

 

 

Seeing as many gamers argue that 1080p and 60fps is the only way games should be viewed and played, as well as the meteoric rise is streaming gameplay online via Twitch and other sources. It makes sense for Elgato to get with the times.

Stay tuned to RGN, as soon as Elgato pulls back the curtain next Monday.

Quakecon 2014: The Evil Within Gets A New Release Date

The-Evil-Within-300x187

After getting pushed back from August and given an October 21 2014 release, players will be able to get their hands on Bethesda and Tango Gameworks’ upcoming survival horror title a week early. The game’s official twitter account sent out a tweet earlier, revealing the new date of October 14 for the game’s release announced at Quakecon 2014.

 

No details were given but the decision to have the game out a week earlier could be due to October 21st seeing the release of 4 other titles, including Battlefield: Hardline and the highly anticipated Evolve. Borderlands: The Presequel and Raven’s Cry are currently the only other games releasing on the 14th, so dropping The Evil Within on that day is a much safer move. Whatever the reason is, I’m sure everyone who is excited to play this will be happy with this bit of news.

MegaRan + K Murdock Announce The Opposite Of War Tour Hitting Down South August

The Opposite of War MegaRan South Tour 2014

Random AKA MegaRan is a hip hop artist and real gamer responsible for such hits as Forever Famicom (the gamer’s soundtrack to life as produced by K Murdock), Black Materia (the world’s most personal and introspective Final Fantasy 7 rap ever), and many more. As an artist constantly on the road these days, you might have seen him live at your favorite game industry event like PAX, SXSW, or even E3.

Fresh on the heels of the Odds N Ends Tour and the announcement of an upcoming September tour of the UK with Mr. Miranda, MegaRan has now announced The Opposite Of War Tour which will take place down south in the good ol’ US of A featuring K Murdock, Doug Funnie, and Tribe One. Not only that, TRAP 2 is still available to download until the end of the week for those true fans who would like to help fund that UK tour I just mentioned. This album was originally sold only on tour, and who knows when you’ll get another chance to buy it again after this.

The reason we talk so much about MegaRan is one of the hardest working Nerdcore artists out there and provides the music business with something more soulful than just empty rhymes about how Mario is cool or it was tough being a nerd growing up. Random (AKA MegaRan) is working on a number of projects that are aimed to drop this year and really provoke us to think about the world from a big picture viewpoint. Beyond that, his music is very well produced and rhymes are always on point. Take a look at the tour dates in the image at the top of this article and view some more detailed links to some of those Opposite Of War shows below.
