Alex Pall Talks Evolution in the Wake of the Chainsmokers New Hit

When the Chainsmokers released 2016 single “Closer” Andrew Taggart picked up the mike to sing lead vocals. This was the first time the group, formed back in 2012, attempted to become part of the humanity within their music. EDM DJ’s rely heavily on other artists to provide the human element in their work. This element comes from the songwriting, and the vocalization. EDM DJ’s rarely provide that vocalization, but in “Closer” Taggart crossed that barrier. It is no secret the duo pushes themselves to achieve new limits in their medium. Both have attested numerous times that they no longer want to just make dance music. Taggart’s vocal turn demonstrate their willingness to challenge the norms and seek a different definition for their work. In an interview Alex Pall, the other have of the successful duo, talked about their quest for identity, and how they seek to remain relevant. “We don’t want to produce albums containing a random mix of songs,” Pall stated, “Containing a couple of singles, a few good songs, some dance tracks, and possibly an interlude. We want to create an album of connected songs that form a body of work”.


The Chainsmokers became known in 2014, with their first hit single “#Selfie”. Their popularity grew almost overnight and they skyrocketed to the mainstream. The success came so fast that four years later they still have not caught up. Earlier this year they released new single “Sick Boy” which is currently gaining popularity. The song carries a darker tone than their previous work, carrying with it a real world message. The main aim of the song is at the pressure of social media, the dependence upon it, and how it steals away people’s identity. The song also references Pall and Taggart’s own frustration with oversaturation on social media, leading to a lack of privacy. The song is the first of a group, and represents the duo’s newest evolution.

New Game Modes Confirmed for Black Ops 4

After the controversial announcement that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would not feature the standard single-player campaign seen in every other game of the franchise, Blizzard has just announced what will be replacing it: A battle royale mode.


In what many see as a rather shameless attempt to capitalize on the popularity of games like Fortnite: Battle Royale, the latest Black Ops has just been confirmed to feature its own battle royale mode during the live reveal event. Called Blackout, this game mode will likely work the same as its predecessors, pitting a large number of players against each other in a last-man-standing firefight.


While the addition of Blackout is arguably the biggest news to come out of the event, several other features of the new game were also confirmed at the same time. A franchise staple by this point, Black Ops 4 will feature the requisite zombie fighting mode, but with a twist – there will now be three different zombie modes to choose from.


As one would expect, there is also the traditional multiplayer versus mode that will be making up the bread and butter of this year’s release now that the campaign has been axed, pitting players against each other in teams using different weapons and strategy to kill each other. Finally, the game will also feature exclusively single player missions that, rather than compose a campaign, are simply small tasks to be completed using the characters from the multiplayer mode. More explicit details as to what the missions will entail has not yet been revealed.


Black Ops 4 will release on October 12 this year, available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. Additionally, the PC release of the game will not be on a distribution platform like Steam, but available on Blizzard’s own exclusively as a first for the series.


ID and Avalanche Studios Partner for Rage 2

The original Rage was released to mixed reviews from gamers and critics. The original game released in 2011 and is a post-apocalyptic first person shooter. Critics claimed the game had excellent gameplay, but it lacked in the story department.


ID Software, the developers of the original Rage, continued working on the first person shooter genre, eventually creating the commercial successful Doom reboot.


Avalanche Studio recently created the official Mad Max game, a game which was also a commercial and critical success.


Now these two game studios are teaming up to create Rage 2. With the announcement of Rage 2 came an announcement trailer. The trailer features bright, vibrant colors, and a loud soundtrack that fits the chaotic cinematic. The trailer didn’t give away much towards gameplay, as the trailer is purely cinematic, but it did showcase a new type of weapon. A boomerang of some sort can be seen in the hand of one character in the trailer. It is unknown if this weapon will be featured in the actual game.


Gamers seem to be taking to the trailer positively, excited for the team up between ID and Avalanche.


The original Rage was a unique experience. ID Games took the familiar apocalyptic settings and made it more beautiful than ever before. The game had an emphasis on fun gameplay, almost completely ignoring the story line and character progression.


The game also made excellent use of a wide variety of vehicles, providing gamers with a means to get from combat area to combat area. The vehicle combat is surprisingly fun even though the primary use of the vehicle is just to get to the next area.


The online competitive gameplay of Rage focused entirely on car combat; the cooperative online gameplay put two players together in order to see how long they van survive, ranking up points in order to get a high score.


Rage 2 doesn’t have a release date, but if the first Rage is any indicator, a Holiday release is highly likely.

Bob Reina Gets It Done In Order To Give Back

Bob Reina’s Mantra

Bob Reina’s Mantra is “I will”. He feels these two words are so powerful once you understand what they mean and put them into action. Bob Reina wakes up each morning and says those two words to himself. Reina never looks back, for him, life is about moving forward and bringing others forward with him. He learned from building his team at Talk Fusion that everyone has strengths and can use help from others. This to him defines a team, a group of people that come together to accomplish something bigger than themselves. This mantra has not only helped create a global business allowing people to talk to and see others worldwide, it’s also helping local communities. Reina believes in giving back and he’s proud to use himself as an example to inspire others.


How Bob Reina Sees Giving Back

Bob Reina has two visions when it comes to giving back. From one angle he sees giving anonymously as a commendable dignity, but then, on the other hand, he feels that using your own public platform to give can be very influential to others. He is more inclined to be open and public about his philanthropic efforts. He believes that if he goes around himself and sees what he’s supporting he can learn more awareness in life. He feels that if he uses his platform to make the public donations he can spark interest in others and then his philanthropy is going even further. Reina feels that his actions are just about helping people in need and he’s blessed that he’s in a position to help. Charity differs from the bottom line constraints he faces in the boardroom because he can give them the help that’s needed right away and not put something off until the next quarter. Another thing Reina feels that reflects who he is in his work is self-improvement. By learning all that he can outside of the boardroom and experiencing life as it is, he can do new things and open up new ventures and see where his help is needed.


How Bob Reina Inspires Others

Bob Reina says good time management is the way to get more done in your day so you can get more out of life. Reina feels that his “can do” attitude is enough to get him through the day. He says there is nothing more important than your mindset when it comes to propelling you in the right direction. His end goal in all that he does is to make people live easier lives. Giving back is what ultimately drives the entire machine. Learn more:

Upcoming 2K Games Title Postponed Prior to Announcement

Take-Two is the parent company both of Rockstar Games and 2K Games, together responsible for some of the best games to ever hit the market. For quite some time, fans have been teased as to an upcoming 2K Games title, supposedly a new entry into one of the company’s “biggest franchises” without actually confirming what the game could be. Turns out they need a bit more time to work on it, so fans are just going to have to keep waiting.


New reports from the company indicate that the currently unknown game will be released sometime in fiscal year 2020 (April 2019 to March 2020) if current plans do not change further, rather than the original 2019 fiscal year (April 2018 to March 2019). When announcing the delay, 2K said that they are still as excited about the game as ever and believe that the extra development time will improve the end product players get, even if it takes longer than expected.


However, the CEO of Take-Two, Lainie Goldstein, made sure to mention that some amount of money has been reserved for marketing this upcoming game during the 2019 fiscal year, indicating there may be a reveal on the way in the near future.


As one would expect, speculation as to what this new game could be has been going on since it was first announced. Many believe it could be Borderlands 3, the latest in the popular Gearbox Software-developed Borderlands franchise. However, Gearbox president Randy Pitchford has claimed that, while a new Borderlands is currently in development, it likely will not be done in time to present it at the upcoming E3 (though it’s still a possibility).


There has also been news of a “top secret” BioShock sequel in the works for at least some time now. With how long this has allegedly been in development, it would make sense for them to announce it sooner or later.


If this question is answered soon, it would likely be at E3, so stay tuned for more information.


Chainsmokers Along With Halsey Honor Avicii at the Billboard Awards

The 2018 billboard music award took its tribute to the great producer and DJ through the Chainsmokers along with Halsey. Before the presentation of the Top Hot 100 song of this year to the great singer of Despacito, Luis Fonsi, the Chainsmokers stated to the thousands of audience in the building that Avicii was a great artist who inspired a lot of people. He did so by the by his ventures in the music industry as well as the contribution he made to the entire community.

Halsey added that any person who has worked with Avicii could ascertain that Avicii is among the most joyful people to work. The message was clear that it is a reminder to people to support their friends and families who might be struggling with illnesses such as mental illness.

The Chainsmokers also paid tribute to Avicii through the Top Dance act award they received that night. Taggart said that the award was dedicated to Avicii, a person who made them believe that music was something they could do forever in their lives. He also added that Avicii is an inspiration to all the people who were in the building, through the influence he brought to pop music in general. “we miss him, and I hope he has finally found peace”, said Taggart.

Avicii ended his life on April 20th at 28 years. The family of the legend later revealed that he took life. Rumours have it that the unreleased album of the star could be still released. That is according to the Geffen Records president. Geffen Records is the ultimate label of the star.

At the stage, Kelly Clarkson, The BBMAS host, took the opportunity to remember the shooting that was witnessed at Texas on Friday. He told people to take a moment of change rather than a moment of silence for them to be able to change the social evils taking over the society and affecting the beloved ones. It is excellent to understand that people are the owners of the changes they dream of and everything is on their hands.

Heal And Soothe Benefits

Heal and Soothe is a powerful dietary supplement that contains 12 naturally occurring healing ingredients. These ingredients were selected for their pain and inflammation-fighting properties. Its manufacturer promotes this product as an alternative for the treatment of joint aches and pains.


In developing this supplement, Living Well Nutraceuticals created a proprietary formula. Heal and Soothe combined potent proteolytic enzymes to help control and manage pain. The company claims that it spent seven years to create this product. All enzymes present in Heal and Soothe act by breaking down scarred tissues, relieving pain, and minimizing inflammation.


Is Heal and Soothe Safe?

Living Well Nutraceuticals willingly provides information about this health product. Doing so helps individuals make knowledgeable decisions about treatment. Typically, many people suffering from aches and pains lack accurate information. As a result, most are grappling with the side effects of prescription medications caused by a lack of information.


Nutraceuticals alleviates these challenges by providing information about the composition of its supplement. An advantage of this product is that science proves the effectiveness of its ingredients. Several clinical studies and evidence gathered from years of use prove the safety and efficacy of Heal and Soothe’s ingredients. This is why its manufacturer combined these ingredients to create a holistic product. Contrary to prescription medications, Heal has no long-lasting side effects.


Additionally, it contains no animal or shellfish elements. Although its potency derives from proteolytic enzymes, its other components are equally important. Research studies prove that systemic enzymes are beneficial to the body. In addition to that, these enzymes cleanse the blood, improve the respiratory, and immune systems.


See This Page for additional information.


Why Choose Heal and Soothe?

Nowadays, there has been an increase in the number of people depending on alternative therapies for their health needs. Why is this so? It is because years of use prove their safety and potency. Even so, herbal medications are potentially dangerous if abused. However, herbal medications are generally safer than over the counter medications (OTC).


With Heal and Soothe growing in popularity, it is an alternative well worth considering. With this supplement, you don’t have to worry about liver damage, allergic reactions, or addictions. Besides that, Heal and Soothe’s enzymes improves your body’s ability to heal while strengthening the integrity of body tissues.


When treating pain, controlling inflammation is just one phase of the process. To top that, Heal and Soothe is a form of Systemic Enzyme Therapy. During treatment, the body absorbs Heal and Soothe’s elements holistically in healing itself. On the contrary, this isn’t so for standard medications.



Cliff Blezinski Tweets Unused Game Ideas Following Studio’s Closure

Cliff Blezinski, founder of Boss Key Productions and best known for his work with the Gears of War franchise, has had a rough time of it recently. The studio’s last two games, LawBreakers and Radical Heights, where both critical and commercial failures by gaming standards, accused of being nothing but carbon copies of various fads of the time (Overwatch and Fortnite: Battle Royale, respectively). As a result, the designer has announced his departure from video games and the closure of Boss Key altogether.


However, Blezinski seemed to have one more treat for fans, taking to Twitter to post various game ideas and concept art that he and his company were never able to make for one reason or another.


First up was a game tentatively titled DragonFlies, which involved a sword-wielding player character riding dragons on airships to fight undead enemies. Blezinski compared it to Microsoft’s canceled Scalebound and to the poorly received Lair from Factor 5. Artist Shawn Lin was tapped to provide concept images, and quite a few at that, but Boss Key could never seem to scare up the $40 million or so needed to make the game from any of the seven publishers they tried to work with.


Next was to be titled either Rover or DogWalkers, a game featuring multiplayer tank combat set to be released in VR. Teams would be composed of five tanks, with five people controlling each one.


Lastly, there was Donuts, a lighthearted VR game in the spirit of Atari’s Toobin, where groups of birds would ride down rivers in Mario Kart-esque races while trying to stave of Seasonal Affective Disorder.


Blezinski made sure to say that these were only a handful of the titles the team was considering prior to the studio’s closure. He did not say whether or not his showing off the concepts on Twitter meant he had no intention of ever returning to them at some point in the future, though doing otherwise would only be complicated by the studio’s closure putting the IP rights of all three into question.
