Jay-Z to launch ‘Empire’ Facebook game

Rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z is set to stretch his business legs in a new venture — Facebook gaming.

His beta version of ‘Empire’ has just been released. It shadows the story of his own life where players follow a ‘rags to riches’ tale where they see themselves rise from the Brooklyn projects to rap stardom and successful businessman.

“Make the right choices and you can have it all: money, fame, street cred, and good karma.”

Empire is available to play via Facebook.

Final Fantasy x Prada Spring 2012

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the popular video game, Final Fantasy, Arena Homme+ will feature a 12-page spread showcasing characters of the game dressed in pieces from Prada’s latest fashion collection.

“The Final Fantasy series is known for its creativity and innovation; so working with Prada, a renowned fashion house with such beautiful clothing, was a very exciting opportunity. The images we have been able to create together are vibrant and unique,” said Yoshinori Kitase, producer of Final Fantasy XIII-2.

The issue will hit stands on April 12.

Punch your lights out!

Ever wish life was a little more 8-bit? Thanks to the creative folk at 8 Bit Lit, you’re now one step closer to having your wish come true.

Like the game, this block-shaped light is lit up with a swift uppercut to the base. Switching it on or off will activate the classic coin sound and, for every eighth punch, you’ll receive that sweet, sweet 8-bit 1UP sound effect.

Made from plexiglass, the LVL Up Lamp uses energy efficient (powerful) LED lights.

Both ready made and DIY versions of the LVL Up Lamp are available from Lootiful.
