Over the years, video games have made leaps and bounds in the advancement of technology. What was once simple pixelated graphics and monotone chiptune music, has now evolved to a display of near photo-realistic graphics accompanied with rich and powerful scores that stir the emotions within. Video game music has always been a crucial element in gaming, it has the power to extend far past the initial playthrough and infest our minds with it’s addicting melodies. It has become iconic, going hand in hand with the actual game itself.

This is the start of a new chapter for us and we are so thankful for all the support that we’ve received from the underground that has gotten us to this point in our career.”
Naughty Dog have officially announced they'll be porting The Last of Us to PS4
Moving our efforts to the PS4 has allowed us to remaster an already phenomenal looking The Last of Us in 1080p with a list of upgrades including higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, along with even more improvements. We love setting challenging technical hurdles for us when working on each game – and this is no different. We’ve been working hard on The Last of Us Remastered to release a next-gen evolution worthy of the 200+ Game of the Year awards, not to mention the acclaim and expectations of our fans. We will be revealing more detailed information about the upgrades for the PS4 version in the coming months.
The amount of money I'm trying to raise will pay for new podcast equipment which will bring better quality to the show, a small amount of CD's from my personal collection to a select few who donate, and also cover a portion of the shipping to get these things out to you. Most of the bonuses are coming out of my own pocket. No skimping here, my friends. If everyone reading this donated just $5-$10, we'd hit our goal within a day or two. We realize that there's little to no incentive to donating and that's understandable.
Whoever donates the most money within the time frame will receive a meet and greet/backstage access with their favorite band (within reason). Tell us your favorite band when you donate so we can expedite the process. Depending on how many people donate, we will have up to TWO winners for the meet and greet/backstage access. Everyone who donates WILL get a shoutout on the podcast and website. And just to sweeten the deal, the highest donator will get a 30 min Skype call with me (which could be made into a podcast at your discretion.) Please help if you can, even if "help" simply means reposting this on all of your various social media networks and telling all of your friends about it. The podcast/website cannot be popular until you decide it is. You don't want to be one of those people that didn't help out, do you?
Emmure, the controversial deathcore band, never fails to bring us that hardcore angry feel. Now they're back angry and even more controversial.
