A Digital Pioneer on the Future of Music

Mike has a fascinating and wide-ranging conversation with Tamir Koch, the CEO of eMusic. eMusic launched in 1998 as the first legal, digital music store. As the industry pioneer and champion of independent labels and artists, eMusic serves 47 million music fans and has sold nearly one billion downloads. It relaunched in 2017, evolving from a discount digital music store into a full-featured digital music service. Now, eMusic is launching a blockchain-based platform that it says will include everything artists need to publish and distribute music and manage rights and royalties.

Tamir and Mike go deep on why and how blockchain technology could solve a lot of the rights, data, and royalty problems facing the music industry and, conversely, the limits of this technology. Tamir also explains why he thinks the streaming market is unsustainable and that pure music companies, such as Spotify and Pandora, will not be able to keep up with the likes of Google, Apple, and Amazon unless something changes.

Xbox Breach

It’s been about six months since release, but FNAF: Security Breach is coming out soon for more platforms. It launched on PC, PS4, and PS5 in late December 2021. While the game received praise for finally evolving its gameplay a bit, its release was not without technical issues.

Yesterday, developer Steel Wool Studios released a short teaser for the Xbox version of the game. It shows Monty Gator in a commercial for Gator Golf. After the reveal, there is a brief, but lengthy disclaimer for the death, dismemberment, and all around gruesome fates you may encounter in the game.

FNAF: Security Breach

Currently, all the main series Five Nights at Freddy’s games up to Security Breach are available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. FNAF: Security Breach is expected to come out for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S this fall. A collector’s edition for PS4 and PS5 is available for pre-order and will ship in December.

Sometime next year, FNAF: Security Breach DLC titled Ruin will be coming out. It will be released for free. Ruin supposedly takes place after the “Burntrap Ending” of the game, which is considered to be the true ending of the game.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach is available for PC, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch. It is expected to come to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in the fall.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 New DLC Lets Players Work at Biosyn

Jurassic World Evolution 2 Dominion Biosyn Improved Sandbox Experience

Jurassic World Evolution 2’s new expansion is going to be called Dominion Biosyn. It will allow players to play through the massive corporation’s first days. With that said, they will have an understanding on how hungry the company was at bringing back never-before-seen dinosaurs. That is, before everything takes a turn for the worse.

Fans of the franchise witness Biosyn working at full capacity in the movie Jurassic World Dominion. The corporation genetically created dinosaurs and other dangerous creatures at such an alarming pace. Jurassic World Evolution 2’s Biosyn campaign flows harmless from mission to mission. Players were successful with very little push back.

Some of the dinosaurs ended up getting sick while others tended to misbehave. However, gameplay was essentially a stress-free playthrough that allows players to interact with a lot of new dinosaurs. Examples of these new species are the Giganotosaurus, Pyroraptor, Quetzalcoatlus, and the Dimetrodon.

The campaign does not really ask that much from Jurassic World Evolution 2 players. Guest satisfaction is not a priority. The main focus is to build working habitats for the new dinosaurs. Players can build an invisible fence. However, this feature may be challenging to work with when the map is heavily wooded. These special fences look amazing in different habitats. Being able to see how the dinosaurs interact with the existing lot makes the game even more fun to play.

With that said, players may want to check their overhead heat maps first so they can see the perimeter. This will make it easier for them to apply any ranger posts and feeding stations. The game’s underground railway system may also be difficult to chain together.

Jurassic World Evolution 2’s Dominion Biosyn expansion expands the core game in small yet meaningful ways. Overall, the DLC hugely improves the sandbox experience.

ConcernedApe Has Plans to Improve Modding in Stardew Valley

The Mod Squad

Though the development of Haunted Chocolatier is well underway, Stardew Valley still has a massive active community. Developer ConcernedApe knows this and still has plans to improve the indie farming-sim. Though development has mostly slowed down, you can be sure there is more to come.

Last week, when asked about plans for Stardew Valley and Haunted Chocolatier, ConcernedApe gave a bit of insight. In the next Stardew update, 1.6 will not have very much in the way of new content, but it will be be more mod-friendly. Recognizing the modding community and their work, the next update will make it easier for modders.

As for Haunted Chocolatier, Eric Barone says that there will be some connections between the new game and Stardew Valley. It will not be a sequel, but it will have similarities, such as relationship-building with the NPCs. There will also likely be some shared world elements. Maybe a Joja billboard or something.

1) 1.6, yes. But it’s mostly a modding-focused update (makes modders lives easier). There will be some new content but it won’t be huge. 1.7? Who knows.


2) Yes, but I haven’t decided how deep the connection will be exactly. I want Haunted Chocolatier to have its own identity

Anything on update 1.7 or beyond for Stardew Valley is anyone’s guess. It doesn’t seem like even Barone has any plans at the moment. Stardew Valley is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
