Apple Music / iOS 8.4 Go Live Tomorrow Morning

Posted on June 29, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Apple’s much anticipated subscription based music service, Apple Music, will go live tomorrow morning alongside the launch of Beats Radio and an update to iOS 8 to enable support for both of these new products.

Originally revealed at this month’s WWDC Apple Music is cupertino’s Spotify competitor allowing subscribers to access millions of songs for a monthly fee. Priced at $10 for an individual account or $15 a month for a family plan Apple Music appears to offer some serious competition and surely the 90 day free trial will help Apple steal away subscribers from rival services.

Beats 1 is a 24 hour radio station that will stream music 24/7 for Apple Music subscribers from locations like London, New York and Los Angeles.

iOS 8.4 will roll out at 8 AM PST tomorrow with Apple Music and Beats 1 coming online at 9 AM PST.



Become a Legend With The Destiny Launch Trailer

Posted on September 9, 2014 by Rae Michelle Richards

Bungie’s latest title – the  MMO/FPS hybrid Destiny – is now available through both physical and digital retailers. To celebrate Activision released a live action trailer. This live action trailer was directed by Josepth Kosinki whom is probably most well known for helming TRON: legacy. He’s coupled his live action trailer with some Led Zepplin , which if you ask me is a pretty awesome choice.

Activision is trumpeting Destiny as “the most pre-ordered new video game IP” and according to them over 4 million people participated in the in the game’s beta this past July. Players take on the role of a Guardian on the last city on Earth. Adventures aren’t just limited to this planet of ours – the interactive world promises to span the stars with missions located on Mars!

Check out the live action trailer in the player below. Activision has provided Broken Joysticks with a PS3 copy of Destiny and we will be posting our full review in the coming weeks.

Posted on April 17, 2012 by Matthew Regier

After the recent announcement of Project X Zone, the collaboration project between Capcom, Namco, and Sega many fans have been speculating what the game is going to be about and what characters we will be seeing. We are now that much closer to getting more information revealed with the launch of the game’s official website which can be viewed here.

Unfortunately nothing about the story or game’s system has been revealed, but according to the screenshots found on the site we can see that it appears to be a fighting game with a sprite based art style and a very smooth manga-esque style for cut away supers (as seen by Ryu charging up a shinku-hadouken).
