Over 2 Million Registered for 'Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn'

Square Enix announced today that over 2 million users (globally) have registered for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn accounts.

This title is now available for multiple platforms, including the PS3, PS4, Vita (with Remote Play), and the PC. It's also available for $39.99 on PS4 and PC ($29.99 on PS3), and requires a $12.99 monthly subscription fee.

Keep in mind this is $20 lower up front than any other new MMO release, and $2 less per month to boot (cough ESO cough). This is the way to get loyal subscribers, friends. This. Is. The. Way.

Xbox One Requires Day One Resolution Update for Trials Fusion

In order for Xbox One Trials Fusion players to enjoy 900p resolution they'll have to download a day-one patch.

Without this patch the game only runs at 800p, 60fps. If you are more of the 1080p type of player, then PS4 and PC have that for you. Honestly, it's not that big of a difference so go with whatever makes you happiest.

I'm still debating which platform to get it on. Which one are you buying it for?

'This is Broforce!' Highlight Video

Last night was wonderful. I decided to download Broforce, the latest title from Devolver Digital on Steam, and it couldn't have been a better decision. Absolute mayhem from start to finish, loved every second.

Check out the highlight video below to see some sweet Bro on Bro action...

Okay, that sounded weirder than I planned.

2-Minute Drill: Jogging is a Waste of Time

In this 2-Minute Drill I explain why jogging is a complete waste of time. Not only does it yield little to no results, but it's terrible for your joints, often leading to severe overuse injuries.

So stop spending 2 hours on the treadmill and start lifting some weights. You'll be much healthier and spend a lot less time becoming so.

Video after the break!

Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach Gain Their Own Wii Remote Plus' this Week

Nintendo announced new Wii Remote Plus' this morning, donning the looks of Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach.

Platforming their way to North American shelves next week (April 24th), you can pick up one of these lovelies for only $40. I've already picked up a Luigi and Princess Peach one. Can't wait to dig into my old library!

Too bad they didn't make a Yoshi one...

'Diablo 3' Legendary Crafting Drop Spawns per Act

If you're looking for that special piece of equipment in Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls and haven't had any luck finding it, you might be looking in the wrong spot.

This is luckily no longer the case as reddit user mr_irony has put together quite the list. In spreadsheet form you can view which Legendary crafting materials drop in which Act. Even down to the waypoint.

The list seems to be evolving as well, so if you have anything to add please do so in the comments section below. Now time get hunting. I need me some rare mats.

'Battlefield 4' Death Shield is a Glitch That Kills You While Shooting Your Enemy

If you've ever played Battlefield 4 then you've no doubt either heard complaints about hit detection or suffered from them yourself. Explanations range from bad net code to server lag and everything in between have surfaced, each of them seeming as relevant as the next.

However over on YouTube, jackfrags has found something very odd. An actual game-breaking bug that will kill you if you shoot over a revivable dead body. All you need to do for this to work is put an enemy down - don't kill them - and then shoot at another enemy. Their hit box is still alive and rockets and grenades will bounce back at you.

Take a look at this video to truly understand. Thank you jackfrags for figuring this out!

$100 for a Nintendo 2DS and Pokemon X... Yes, Please

Right now Target is offering a Nintendo 2DS with Pokemon X for only $99.99. That's a ridiculous deal, despite your feelings for the 2DS.

Keep in mind the 2DS usually retails at $129.99 by itself, so this deal is really, really worth it.
