With the release of the PS4 version only a month away, we know there will be many new faces on Eorzea. Here's how to not look like a n00b even though you are one.
Choosing a server (world)
There are only two datacenters, North America (located in Montreal) and Japan. Pick a server from the DC closest to you. If you want to play with the Gouki team, pick Malboro (NA).
Choosing a race
Hyur (Human): Really? Zzzzzz.
Elezen (Elf): About the same size and shape as human, can get a bit taller and has pointy ears. Good wizarding material. You think Legolas is the star of the LotR and fantasize about Spock.
Miqo’te (Cat people): A tiny bit smaller than humans, but not annoyingly so. Have cat ears on top of their heads and whiskers. You’re probably into furries and/or MLP.
Roegadyn (Giants): Big, muscular. Great for tanks or if you really want to see the detail in those armor pieces and have poor eyesight or a small monitor. You like bodybuilders, Muscle magazine is your porn.
Lalafell (Hobbits): Tiny, round, cute, and annoying. If you are a pedophille or just like trolling people, this is your dream race.
All kidding aside, the race you choose doesn’t matter much. We’re talking about 1-2 points in your base stat. If you REALLY are in to min/max when you MMO and you can’t live without those 1-2 points, follow this rule: Tanks should pick Roegadyn and choose Sea Wolves for the sub race. Melee DPS should choose Hyur Highlander. Archers should choose Elezen Wildwoods. Casters should choose Elezen Duskwights and Healers should choose Miqo’te Keepers of the Moon.

Gameinformer reveals their April cover, and we finally know what Rocksteady's been up to for the last couple of years.
Another Arkham game? Yup. But this time Rocksteady's back... also, drivable Batmobile. Oh, and did I mention, no last gen support... PC, PS4, and Xbox One only.
Check out the cover art:
In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever.
Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
Be The Batman.
And another surprise... It's due out this year. There's a trailer up too... it's just CG, no actual game play. It does show the roster of villians and the Batmobile though, and pre-order bonus of playing as Harley Quinn (in the challange maps).

Strider makes his return on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC this week as a digital download.
From the description:
Strider features the same franchise hallmarks of fluid, lightning quick side scrolling combat and free-flowing traversal through the expansive interconnected metropolis of Kazakh City. Perform breakneck acrobatic jumps and mid-air flips while slicing through Strider's varied enemy types with Hiryu's indestructible 'Cypher', a plasma charged weapon that can take on a number of properties. Alternatively, use the climb sickle to gain the high ground, and hit enemies with a surprise Kunai attack or call on support companions for some extra muscle when the going gets tough. Strider is developed by Double Helix Games, in conjunction with Capcom.
Once players have mastered the art of performing breakneck acrobatic jumps, mid-air flips and sliced their way through hundreds of enemies there's plenty more fun for the ultimate ninja hero to have. Players can put their skills to the test in Beacon Run -- a "speed run" race style mode that gives players a white-knuckled experience challenging them to hit consecutive checkpoints whilst slicing through enemies in the shortest amount of time. Survival Mode tests players' combat skills with a variety of different item and ability load outs, as waves of progressively difficult and diverse enemies converge on Strider Hiryu.

A new feature has been announced...
In this Spring/Summer's upcoming release of Ultra Street Fighter IV, we'll be getting more than just new characters and balance. Capcom just announced a new feature for the game.
Now you can take any of your online matches and upload them straight to youtube.
"You’ll be able to select any match from your battle log of online matches, and choose whether to upload it in low or high quality, directly to your own YouTube channel! Whether it’s the best comeback since Daigo VS Justin Wong, or perhaps you had an encounter with a pro-player you want to share, this feature is great for those who are yet to own a direct capture device, and want to show off their favorite Ultra Street Fighter IV moments!"
I guess this is in part to make up for not having a next-gen version with their built-in sharing and all..
Capcom's GregaMan and Tristan sit down for an exclusive look at some Strider gameplay, featuring a battle with everyone's favorite robo-gorilla, Mecha-Pon. Footage is taken from the livestream held at twitch.tv/capcomunity.
