SSX and Reckoning Get Online Pass

For those of you who are unaware, an Online Pass is a way for game companies to manage the rights of their games that have online functionality. This pass usually comes packaged with a new game and allows the gamer access to online features and bonus content. The brilliant minds at Electronic Arts have decided to put online passes into two of their upcoming games, SSX and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. The latter, a single-player game, includes an online pass that grants you access to the an additional quest line giving gamers all the more reason to buy it new. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning drops Feb 7 and SSX Feb 28.

What these passes boil down too is a way for the company to reduce the sale of used games while still being able to make a profit if it is bought used. Do you think more companies will begin to adapt this business model? And what do you think of online passes in general?

Final Fantasy XV - Death Caster Spell Trailer

Final Fantasy is known for their powerful spells among other things. Death is one such spell. This iteration of the powerful one-hit KO spell, when it hits, does it abit different. From the trailer you can see Noctis equip the Ring of the Lucil. I'm not sure if this is same ring from the KingsGlaive movie but it seems to be going by the items description.

This Death Spell literally sucks the life out of enemies until the die in a puff of smoke. The drawback to this spell, is that it leaves you completely open to attack and takes some time to cast. I completely understand for limitations on such a powerful spell and can't wait to get my hands of this game. November cannot come soon enough.
