Final Fantasy XIV is my favorite MMORPG: it's stalwart quality shines throughout every aspect, representing one of the best online games ever made--and certainly the best MMO of our era. Square Enix has put so much effort into every facet of the game, and its expansions are games within themselves; the same is true for Stormblood, Final Fantasy XV's latest expansion, which releases on June 20, 2017 on PS4 and PC.

 

Square Enix revealed a ton of new info about Stormblood at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Las Vegas last night, and we've broken down the details in key bullet points below:

Tesla's latest Easter Egg sends your car to Mars

By: Lana Jelic | More News: Technology in Vehicles | Posted: Dec 24, 2016 3:35 pm

It's no news that Elon Musk likes to add Easter Eggs in the Tesla's software - from Mario Kart animation in Autopilot to making your Model S submersible (although only on the control panel, for now).

 

The latest Easter Egg, reported by Jason Hughes, is probably the best one so far and I can only imagine Musk smiling when thinking of this on. We all know about Musk's plans to colonize Mars.

Batman Arkham Knight devs hard at work on new project

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Dec 24, 2016 2:21 am

Now that Rocksteady Studios is done with Batman's four-part Arkham series, and the most-recent Arkham VR, the developers are "hard at work" on a brand new game...but don't expect any details for quite some time.

"We're very hard at work on our next project but we won't be releasing the details for a while," Rocksteady creative direction Sefton Hill said in a recent Reddit AMA. "When we do you guys will be first to hear as we want to get the community involved heavily in what we do next."

 

Hill also squashed any hope of a PlayStation 4 Pro enhancement patch for Batman: Arkham Knight, so we won't see the game rock enhanced features like 1080p 60FPS with extra graphical tweaks, or 4K 30FPS. "Unfortunately we are not planning a patch for PS4 at this time. I know that's not what you want to hear but better to be honest. We did release a patch for Arkham VR to support the Pro, which is a nice piece of tech. I'm looking forwards to playing it with my new 4K TV!" Hill said during the AmA session.

According to Variety, the 60 year old actress was returning to the United States in time for Christmas after touring London promoting her recently released book 'The Princess Diarist', which details her on-set fling with co-star Harrison Ford during the filming of the first 'Star Wars' film in 1976.

We learned that they aren't going for a conventional design and that Faraday Future decided to ditch the side view mirrors and instead install cameras.

 

However, the latest trailer posted on their YouTube page shows something much more interesting than the design. According to the footage, Faraday Future's first production vehicle is faster than Tesla's Model S P100D.

PC generated 442% more revenue than consoles in 2016

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Dec 23, 2016 8:21 pm

We now know just how well the PC gaming did this year, generating a massive $35.8 billion in 2016 - which according to SuperData's analysis of the interactive entertainment world, was "driven largely by free-to-play online titles and downloadable games".

 

pc-generated-442-more-revenue-consoles-2016_03

 

SuperData noted that games like League of Legends and even my favorite, Overwatch, "drive enthusiasm". They also noted that PC gamers recognized a "big improvement with the release of a new generation of graphics cards, offering a 40% increase in graphics power and a 20% reduction of power consumption" - thanks to AMD's release of the Radeon RX 400 series, and NVIDIA's popular GeForce GTX 10 series of graphics cards.

 

It we compare it to the relatively small console gaming market, where $6.6 billion was made - with SuperData noting the revenue generated through "add-on content, expansion packs, and micro-transactions", all dirty words to some gamers.
