One of this year's big releases for Square Enix is, of course, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII — and last week was the first opportunity of for a select few press to get see some early code. The event took place in the beautiful city of Paris, and as well as a great insight into how the game's development is coming along, none other than the game's producer Yoshinori Kitase and director Motomu Toriyama were on hand to answer a few questions. Needless to say, we tagged along… here you'll find our impressions of the day — and look out in the next few days for an interview with the main men themselves. The demonstration took place at a trendy screening room in the centre of the city, and when everybody had arrived we were ushered into the presentation area. Sinking into our cosy armchairs, we looked on at the projector screen displaying a large gleaming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII logo and waited for it all to begin. We weren't disappointed. The presentation began with a look-back by Kitase-san at the extensive Final Fantasy heritage. Over the past 25 years, Final Fantasy has grown into one of the largest RPG franchises in the history of videogames, and boasts a name that resonates with most gamers out there today.

Metroid Prime is a Story Arc offshoot of the Metroid series. However, it uses the Metroid Prime Trilogy menus, achievements, saving system, and unlockable soundtracks; and it has extended versions of the Bryyo music tracks to make them less repetitive. Here we present a collection of the game's music in crisp kbps MP3 format.
Ride the Lightning is the second studio album by American heavy metal band Metallica , released on July 27, , by the independent record label Megaforce Records. The artwork, based on a concept by the band, depicts an electric chair being struck by lightning flowing from the band logo. The title was taken from a passage in Stephen King 's novel The Stand. Although rooted in the thrash metal genre, the album showcased the band's musical growth and lyrical sophistication. This was partly because bassist Cliff Burton introduced the basics of music theory to the rest of the band and had more input in the songwriting. Instead of relying heavily on fast tempos as on its debut Kill 'Em All , Metallica broadened its approach by employing acoustic guitars, extended instrumentals, and more complex harmonies.
