With the addition of Battle.net and authenticators, one would think that the age of mass password hacks would be over, sadly they are not. With virtual gold that’s often times worth more than some actual real world currencies, hacking a World of Warcraft or Diablo account can be worth a lot of REAL money. For instance in China, the average person is currently making around 665 Yuans a month or $104 U.S. (source) . This would mean that the theft of $100,000 WOW gold could net a Blizzard account pirate a month’s pay in China (as the average exchange rate is $10 for 10,000 WOW gold). If no market existed, the hacking wouldn’t be half as bad as it is today
Our old friends in Anamanaguchi haven’t been lounging around while not doing interviews with us. No not in the least, instead they’ve been releasing new music. I know because I’ve heard it and it’s awesome. The new album’s production value has gone way up. The sounds are cleaner and bigger without losing that classic NES feel. Included is a few tracks below to wet your appetite then on to the store you must go to pick up the latest album titled Endless Fantasy.
They also put together a kickstarter, but this one is a bit unique. Instead of funding the album, they are funding add ons to the album. Better tour visuals, vinyl, nintendo cartridges loaded with music. They have already absolutely destroyed their goal of $50,000 by reaching an awesome $191,625 as of the publishing of this article. They still have 13 days to go and fantastic stretch goals. If they hit $250,000 they are going to make a game based on the album. Go support some good dudes making not just awesome music but an awesome experience around their music.
Here are two tracks:
