  1. Hello everyone, EK here, and I'm conducting a poll to see who's getting Destiny for what platform and when they're getting it. Please do participate, it's important cause I got nobody to play with on launch day :c Kbai.
  2. Bungie's next hit FPS Destiny will be available on the Xbox One market place for gamers to pre-load on their system before launch! Last week, Microsoft heralded in a new feature to the Xbox One with the launch of Madden 15, pre-loading. Pre-loading allows you to download the game to it's fullest on your system before launch and when launch hits, play it with no waiting hassle. IGN.com reports that Destiny will be the next game to receive this feature, and will be available to pre-load soon. A microsoft spokesperson commented, saying, "We’re thrilled to make Destiny available for pre-order and pre-download . . . this option was available for a short period of time before the official pre-order window opened. We’ll have more details to share soon about the pre-order and pre-download window for Destiny." So far no confirmed pre-load window as he says, but I'd expect it to be open around the launch weekend, September 5th, 6th, and 7th. So far this feature for Destiny has only been confirmed for the Xbox One, however I'd expect the PS4 to also receive the game for pre-load with an announcement coming soon. The game launches in just 2 weeks on September 9th. Are you going to pre-load Destiny, or is a physical copy a must for a game like Destiny? Discuss below! Thank you very much for reading everyone!

  3. It's a bit later in the day then when I'd usually write the wrap-up, sorry, had a buddy over through the night and got very little sleep so I slept during the day. Anyways, let's get on to the wrap-up! In the aftermath of all the gamescom announcements we have some exciting news so stick around! New content, timed exclusives, and more! Tomb Raider 2 is a Timed Exclusive Says Phil Spencer The most controversial announcement from Gamescom was without a doubt the announcement of Tomb Raider's exclusivity on Xbox One, with many flipping out and taking to their blogs and YouTube Comments Section areas to rage at Microsoft and Square Enix, some even going as far as sending death threats to Lara's voice actress and Microsoft as a whole. Eurogamer.com reports that these angry people can ease up, as the game is only timed and will come to PS4 and PC eventually. In an interview with Eurogamer, Phil Spencer said, "I didn't buy the IP. I didn't buy the studio. It's not mine. Where this thing will go over time, just like Dead Rising or Ryse, we'll see what happens with the game. I don't own every iteration of Tomb Raider." He shared his sympathy with people on other platforms, understanding how they would feel alienated from a long-time franchise suddenly moving. He does confirm however that he doesn't own Tomb Raider as an IP, and once the deal is over he doesn't know where it could go. Note: For the love of god don't read the comments section to this article, you'll lose a metric ton of brain cells. What's your take on Tomb Raider being a timed exclusive to Xbox, should it be a full on exclusive or is sharing it with the rest of the community the right thing to do? Debate below! Destiny DLC Leaked in 2013, Just Realized Now Something that might surprise you was in 2013 when Diablo 3: The Reaper of Souls was announced, the name 'The Dark Below' was brought up as a possible name for the expansion or something related to Diablo, turns out it was for Destiny, as we now know. GameInformer.com reports the story, also saying DLC was also trademarked before a World of Warcraft DLC, linking it to World of Warcraft as well. Activision handled the situation well, not getting involved, as it would've likely tipped off the fact it was Destiny. Theories included the name of a new World of Warcraft game and possibly a new Blizzard IP. The Dark Below was officially announced when the Ghost Edition, Limited Edition, and Digital Guardian editions of the game were announced, and it was confirmed at Gamescom it would launch in late 2014. What do you think of the fact that something so wrapped in shadow and essential to Destiny was leaked so early in it's development? Please do discuss it below! Titanfall: IMC Rising DLC Announced We started this series off with the first Titanfall DLC, then continued recently with the second, and it seems we're now ending the Titanfall DLC trilogy with the final add-on announcement! Titanfall.com officially announced the DLC to the rest of the world, it first being revealed at Gamescom this year. The DLC contains what each DLC before it has, 3 maps, Backwater, Zone 18, and Sandtrap, details on each scant. It will run you $9.99 or $24.99 for the season pass to get all three for a value. A release date has not been announced yet, though I would estimate the DLC should launch sometime in October or late September at the earliest. This DLC pack and Frontier's Edge (the last one) seem to have an increased focus on the IMC rather than the Militia, as the only DLC pack to showcase the Militia on the cover was Expedition. This could be a hint at the direction of future titles, possibly IMC winning the war? Do you own the Season Pass and are you picking up this DLC? Let me know below! Thank you very much for reading! Thank you again everyone for reading the wrap-up, I do hope you enjoyed it. I hope to see you all next time on the next Weekly News Wrap-Up. We'll be right back after the break, take it away Jimmy! *Conan reference here for Yoshi* This post has been promoted to an article
  4. I found this playing through the campaign, again, who knew that Bungie has been making the game that long!
  5. I have a couple extra codes for Xbox. First come, first serve - so don't come whining to me if you did not get it . If you take one, reply saying you did so. If anyone else has some to share, please do so here. Have fun! J9JXY-V96HH-7G3G2-RVX3V-9YJGZ 36HTW-XJDPR-FKMY6-23C67-GQDCZ
  6. In Bungie's Weekly Update this week, they showed off juicy details for Destiny like Achievements, a hint at a Collector's Edition, and more announcements coming up, it's all here! In this week's Bungie update, Urk filled in for the typical Community Manager Deej, as he tore into some rather important questions in large detail. Heading to Bungie.net, the first question had to deal with the whopping $500 Million price tag for marketing, as Urk explained how this wasn't near the cost of development, and very little of that actually went into Bungie's work on the game, the majority was just to get it advertised and marketed. The next was relating to the heavily controversial Ghost dialogue heard in the Alpha, voiced by Peter Dinkleage, where it was revealed work is being done right now to redo some lines and more will be done after the Beta, as Bungie tries to clean up the mess. A more humorous question asked about the 'That Wizard Came From The Moon' shirts in the Bungie store, as Urk cleared up that they are still available. A huge announcement, the Achievements and Trophies for Destiny were revealed, there are a total of 40 of them, too many to list individually, but some stand out ones are definitely Ghost Hunter, where you must discover 50 deceased Ghosts, Inspector, where you must inspect another Guardian, and Blink of an Eye, kill 5 enemies in 3 seconds. The full list is in the picture below. View attachment: Destinyachievements.jpg To finish it off, we have three more questions, there are a few more after, but they are mainly jokingly and give us no real info. One question was asked as to how long the beta for Destiny in July will run, to which we were told that it's all still in the works and no finalized date has been decided upon. The next, if there will be a Collector's Edition released alongside Destiny, as Urk responded teasingly, "It’s almost as if we’re planning to drop all the information you need, and more, ahead of Beta on an auspicious date in the very near future." Finally, someone asked if it was official that Destiny is rated T for Teen by the ESRB, as it was confirmed by Urk. Destiny will launch with a T rating to broaden the audience, and contains only 'Animated Blood' and 'Violence'. They also linked to a Polygon piece on the problem with Halo being rated M for Mature, which I highly recommend you look at, as it is featured in the article linked above. View attachment: 2508271-destiny1.jpg To end off on a question, do you wish to see a Collector's Edition for Destiny? If so, what would it need to have to sell you on it, and how much could it cost? Discuss below, and thanks for reading the article! Note: Remember in the last Weekly News Wrap-Up where I promised I'd do one on Friday and not Saturday? Well, I'm skipping a week, yay! They'll resume at regular time next Saturday, the 5th, for now, enjoy... This.
  7. In celebration of the all-holy Bungie Day in which we revere our gods and overlords in Bungie, they have given us three separate Collector's Edition announcements! Today is a big day for any Destiny buff, as Bungie has been widely hinting (not very subtly) about massive announcements to come today, July 7th, Bungie Day. The biggest comes from Bungie.net, where three different Collector's Editions were revealed on the site, and I'm going to go through them one by one. The first is the Destiny Digital Guardian Edition, which comes packed with Early Access to the Vanguard Armory and a pre-order bonus Player Emblem, the Destiny Season Pass (or Expansion Pass as it's labeled) which comes with the two add-ons for Destiny, The Dark Below and House of Wolves, and all of the Digital Content included across the three Collector's Editions, the skin for your Ghost, and the Player Emblem and Ship Skin. It is unknown what this edition currently retails for. Next, we have the Limited Edition, which includes a Steelbook showing off a matte grey image of the star chart and the Destiny logo, a 'Guardian Folio' which encases a field guide of a variety of weapons in the game, a star chart that acts sort of like the map included in GTA V's retail, and postcards, and of course all of the digital content in the Digital Guardian Edition. It retails for $99.99 USD. View attachment: ghost.jpg Finally, there's the Ghost Edition. This includes everything above in the Limited Edition, as well as a scaled replica of a Ghost drone, with working audio and visual display LEDs, along with a small packet of patches, stickers, and slides with images of the traveler on them. Finally, a small letter containing your introduction to Destiny. This edition retails for $149.99 USD and is not available currently on Xbox One. View attachment: ghostedition360.jpg Which edition are you picking up, and are you disappointed or angry that the Guardian Edition isn't on Xbox One? Let me know in the comments below, thanks for reading!
  8. I'm not late, it doesn't count! We have your usual three articles today, tried to spice it up by making them a bit more diverse this time around. So sit down, get your popcorn, and prepare for- What? I need to leave the premises? Why? I don't work here anymore? That's insane! You're getting the swat dogs, okay I'm out! Before we start the link in the article below does contain coarse language, viewer discretion is advised. Ashley Johnson (Ellie, The Last of Us) Responds to Ubisoft Female Assassin Controversy Ubisoft has been under heavy fire from Gaming Press, Gamers, and men and women alike in the gaming media for their decision to not include a playable female Assassin in Assassin's Creed Unity. Ashley Johnson, best known as Ellie from The Last of Us, is one of those women, as she has fired at Ubisoft according to Polygon.com. Leaving out Ashley's choice words likely too mature to be fully stated here, she is completely against the decision, saying, "It's 2014! How many video games do you have to make to realize maybe have an option to have a female be in there?" Her co-star in the game, Troy Baker, has made a much less volatile statement, cautioning the idea of forced inclusion of females. Ubisoft has tried to quell the massive response of angered gamers, but even their wide array of efforts have done little to stop people. Ubisoft is composed of a diverse library of employees, men, women, foreigners, and for the most part anything in between. They were also under similar fire for controversy over the Far Cry 4 cover art showcasing a lighter skinned man holding down a darker skinned man. What's your take on this ridiculous controversy? Debate below! Sony announces two new PS4 bundles in Japan: Custom Destiny Bundle and The Last of Us Bundle PlayStation 4 bundles have been popping up in massive degrees lately, between the Driveclub bundle announced and the recent questionable Frozen bundle, Japan has a wide variety of different PlayStation 4s to choose from, and now we can add two more to that list. IGN.com states that Sony has announced a Destiny bundle with a custom console, and a The Last of Us Remastered bundle with a custom TLOU: R themed PS4. The Destiny bundle is the same as it is here in United States, save for the Destiny logo imprinted unto the console. The Last of Us Remastered bundle includes the game, the PlayStation 4 with the two main characters on the cover, and the DualShock 4, all in their signature black. Destiny is slightly different sporting the Sony logo on it's bottom right corner as well, as it is a PS4 exclusive in Japan. The bundles will likely be the same price as your typical game/console bundle. Do you think either bundle will come to any other country, and would you purchase it if it came to yours? Let me know below! Xbox One Summer Update Features Mobile Purchases, 3D Blu-Ray Compatibility, and More The Xbox One has received quite a few helpful updates following it's launch about a year ago, including a helpful video editor. Major Nelson, or Larry Hyrb, reported on Xbox.com that an update will be available next month. These features include a refined Activity feed, a whole area dedicated to your friends and their activities on the hub, mobile purchases allowing you to buy Xbox items from your device or computer, a low battery notification that pops up on your screen, the ability to turn off notifications during video playback, an enabler for 3D Blu-Ray, an old feature returning from the Xbox 360 allowing you to see what your friends were last doing and when, and OneGuide in a slue of other countries. The countries that will offer OneGuide include Brazil, Mexico, Ireland, and Austria. What do you think of the new updates, will you be utilizing any of them? Discuss in the comments! Thanks for reading the Weekly News Wrap-Up everyone, I'll see you next time! This post has been promoted to an article

  10. Hello everyone and welcome to this week's issue of the Weekly News Wrap-Up! I'm your host Edward Kenway and tonight we have some awesome games for you! Let's check them out! Halo: Broken Circle Announced Halo's novel have given the community a deeper and more meaningful insight into the events that occur in the main story. One of the most infamous of these, the splitting of the Covenant by the end of Halo 2, is getting a novel adaptation according to HaloWaypoint.com called Halo: Broken Circle. It will be written by John Shirley and release November 4th, 2014. The story will center around an Elite Splinter Group fighting back, as well as the story of an honest and true Prophet stuck in a dangerous situation. The cover shows three Elite ships (notice the green lighting and powering, not blue like normal Covenant ships) and what looks like a destroyed shield world of sorts. Since the Arbiter has been announced to hold a place in terminals, this could be a sort of side-story concurrent to the main one. Are you going to be picking up Halo: Broken Circle and does it interest you? Let me know below! Titanfall Available for Free for 48 Hours on PC Titanfall, Respawn's hit multiplayer title exclusive to Microsoft platforms, is going to be available for free for 48 hours on the PC only. This deal comes to us from Origin as one of their new goodwill projects, Origin.com says. The project is called 'Game Time' and while no information has been released on what products will be available next, we can likely expect larger titles like Battlefield 4 or Mirror's Edge to hold a place in it. If you decide to purchase Titanfall after your trial is up, your progress in-game will be saved so long as you're on your account. EA has stated that this is just beginning today, so it isn't available in every country yet, but will be soon. The time starts when you begin playing and ends after 48 hours, meaning that as soon as you activate the game, the clock ticks down, even when you yourself aren't playing. Are you going to be picking up Titanfall with this deal if you haven't already? Debate below! Destiny's Exclusive Content Only Lasts until Fall 2015 Destiny has a hefty load of fresh content coming to PS4 on day one like the Monte Carlo assault rifle, Hawkmoon handgun, new ships and armor, and an exclusive Strike and Competitive map. According to Polygon.com, an Amazon listing (now edited) showed off in it's detailings for the PS4 version the content and stated that it would only be available until Fall 2015. It seems odd that it would be such a short period of time considering how heavily all this content is being pushed on the PlayStation 4. If this amazon listing is to be trusted, Xbox owners can expect to get their hands on the exclusive content (likely) between September and November 2015. Are you irritated that the exclusive content is only available on PS4 for a limited time, or are you yourself a PS4 owner and happy with the decision? Discuss below, thanks for reading! Thanks for reading my friends, I will see you all next Friday (I'm busy saturday) on the next Weekly News Wrap-Up! Take care Guardians. This post has been promoted to an article

  12. After being in the dark for quite some time bungie shed's some light on how they are preparing for their next game Destiny and how they as a company are holding up. Nothing exclusive about destiny has been revealed yet but we are expecting something in late March. This article is from Edge Issue 250 of Edge, on sale today, features an exclusive profile of Bungie, the studio which cemented its place in videogame legend with the 50 million-selling Halo series and which is now working on its first project for Activision, codenamed Destiny. The game has been shrouded in secrecy ever since Bungie signed a ten-year deal with Activision in 2010 – until last November, that is. Art assets which had been handed to an advertising agency ended up in the hands of gaming websites; Bungie, to its credit, took ownership of the leak, giving fans a first official look at some of the game’s concept art in a post on its website. Speaking to us as part of an in-depth studio profile, writer and design director Joseph Staten recalls the day of the leak. “I was in a conference room,” he tells us. “And Pete [Parsons, COO] walked in with his laptop. Pete has this look on him when he’s a little nervous and his eyes get really wide; his entire body was quivering. “I think our response was typical Bungie. We just took it in our stride and, instead of making it a negative, we turned it into a positive. We initiated a conversation with our fans, which we hadn’t done in a really long time. And I think having done that, the great reaction that we got from it really made us all very excited internally. It motivated us.” The feature charts the history of Bungie, which began life as a Chicago-based developer of Mac games before Halo caught Microsoft’s eye, the studio upping sticks and taking up residence on the Xbox maker’s Redmond campus. Time magazine once described that office as “a low-rent nerd farm in the middle of a pumpkin patch”; now the company occupies a sprawling converted multiplex cinema in Bellevue, the Seattle suburb that Valve also calls home. And the similarities with Gabe Newell’s company don’t end there. All Bungie’s desks are on wheels – and have been since 2005, Parsons assures us, lest we think it was a change made last year after Valve’s workplace culture was exposed in a leaked staff handbook – and even the most junior staff are given creative input. It’s a remarkably stable company, too, avoiding falling into the hire-ship-fire loop to which so many big studios succumb. Success helps, of course, but stability is an important part of the Bungie philosophy, as music director Marty O’Donnell explains. “There was a very conscious decision when we went independent from Microsoft,” O’Donnell, the man behind Halo’s classic soundscapes, tells us. “We wanted to make a game company that didn’t get into the habit of swelling its ranks in order to finish a project, and then letting a bunch of people go. We wanted to figure out a way to make a place where people could come and work and stay.” And so it’s proved. Half of the team that worked on the original Halo is still at the studio. Staff are shareholders, so everyone stands to benefit from the studio’s success – which could hit new heights this year, given that Bungie, not Activision, owns the Destiny IP. For the full story of how Bungie is preparing for what looks to be a very interesting year indeed, you’ll need the latest issue of Edge. E250 is on sale now, and it’s a packed issue, with the inaugural Edge Developer Awards – our pick of the 50 best studios on the planet. There’s a 12-page feature on the number one studio, Valve, and reviews of the likes of DmC: Devil May Cry and Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch. Edge is available in print, on Android through Google Play or Zinio, and in award-winning, interactive form for iPad on Apple Newsstand.
  13. Destiny might still come to the PC. Bungie's project Destiny is still only being developed for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4. But a PC release is not off the table yet, according to CEO Eric Hershberg. "A PC release is a possibility and we're certainly looking in to it. It would be a very logical decision with this type of game. We have no announcement for it as of now, but it is being discussed," he sais in an interview. Hirschberg continues by saying that developing a game for 4 platforms is hard work as it is and adding a 5th platform might be a bit too much to handle. "Developing a PC game is completely different then developing a game for a console. We don't want to rush into things, we want to make sure that we are doing this thing right and make sure it is high quality. But I can see how a PC version can work out." So it appears to be that a Destiny PC version might come somewhere in the future if Bungie has some more time on their hands. If you're not buying the game for the consoles, would you buy it for the PC? Let me know down below! Thank you for reading!

  14. Sony's E3 Press Conference has revealed that there will be a bundle with a copy of Destiny on PS4 and a white console, controller, and 30 day PS+ Subscription card. Sony's Electronic Entertainment Expo this year kicked off with a large bang as Destiny content was shown straight out the gate, starting off with the announcement of the Beta date, the 17th of July, and of course early access for PlayStation users. What really kicked it off though was the reveal of a white PlayStation 4 bundled with a copy of Destiny, which can now be viewed on PlayStation's YouTube.com account. The bundle will accompany, as said above, a white console and DualShock 4 controller, the game itself, and a month's worth of PlayStation Plus. As was also revealed at Sony's E3, Destiny will have a ton of exclusive armor sets, missions, and other bonus content for the PlayStation version of the game. The bundle will ship on the same day as the main game, and the bonus content will be available day one, however it is unknown whether it is timed content, or if Xbox owners may never get the content. What are your thoughts on the Destiny PS4 bundle? Or how about the exclusive armor and weapons only available to PlayStation owners? Let me know below, thanks for reading!

  15. Hello everyone and welcome to the the May 31st edition of the Weekly News Wrap-Up! I apologize for this being a few minutes late today, but I finally got my hands on Watch_Dogs for a few hours, and was getting very immersed into the game, and I just got to my PC again a little while ago! Don't fret, for the Wrap-Up is still packed with awesome content all in one place for your reading pleasure! So sit back, relax, and enjoy! The Order: 1886 Delayed to Early 2015 One of Sony's largest exclusives of 2014 was The Order: 1886, following a steampunk styled Industrial Revolution during the Victorian Era, and an unknown and ancient threat, a plot that seems to show promise. I say 'was' because it was recently announced over on PlayStation.com in a blog entry that The Order would be delayed to early 2015, likely February, with a heap of other triple-A titles like Metal Gear Solid: V, Dying Light, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to name a few. The developer, Ready at Dawn, gave the typical reasoning for the delay, explaining how more time was needed to craft the game to perfection. "we have decided to spend some extra time to deliver on the promise we made . . . you can expect The Order: 1886 to come exclusively to the PlayStation 4 in early 2015." They said. Are you pleased that The Order: 1886 has been delayed so that it can be adjusted and fixed to the appropriate state a game should launch in, or has this solidified your reasoning that the PlayStation 4 needs more games soon as it's running dry? Let me know below! Destiny 'Art of', 'Making of', and Poster Collection Books Revealed Destiny has had much hype leading up to it's fall release, but we're all left scratching our heads on scarce details for two main deals which Bungie has remained silent on, Destiny Books, and a Collector's Edition, and while the Collector's Edition has yet to be mentioned, we have received confirmation of three Destiny books! A Reddit.com user spotted the books in his June Comic Previews catalog and took a screenshot of them, showcasing the three different types mentioned above. Each is labeled as being ''Available only within the United States" which could be a complicated situation for those in outside countries looking for Destiny memorabilia. The Art of Destiny is 160 pages, the Poster Collection is 40 pages, and the Making of Destiny is 156 pages. The Artbook and 'Making of' run at $45 USD each and the poster collection at $24.99 USD. Will you be buying the three books, or just certain ones? Discuss below! Dishonored 2: Darkness of Tyvia Fact Sheet Leaked Dishonored was a huge game in 2012, and made a large mark in a year of innovative and new games that aren't widely known or have the biggest budget becoming large hits. It makes sense that reps from the development team would say things like, "We clearly have a new franchise" and this statement is further backed with the leak over on VG247.com, who's source leaked them a fact sheet for an E3 demonstration of Dishonored II. This sheet includes the information that the game will include a DOOM Beta access code, like Wolfenstein, and will be on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, as well as feature a new character with new powers hunting down the Outsider, possibly on a mission of revenge as the previous game's theme seemed to be. It will also include a Versus multi-player mode, run on IDTech5 Engine, and release sometime during 2016.

  16. Hello everyone and welcome to the the May 31st edition of the Weekly News Wrap-Up! I apologize for this being a few minutes late today, but I finally got my hands on Watch_Dogs for a few hours, and was getting very immersed into the game, and I just got to my PC again a little while ago! Don't fret, for the Wrap-Up is still packed with awesome content all in one place for your reading pleasure! So sit back, relax, and enjoy! View attachment: WNW 53114.JPG The Order: 1886 Delayed to Early 2015 One of Sony's largest exclusives of 2014 was The Order: 1886, following a steampunk styled Industrial Revolution during the Victorian Era, and an unknown and ancient threat, a plot that seems to show promise. I say 'was' because it was recently announced over on PlayStation.com in a blog entry that The Order would be delayed to early 2015, likely February, with a heap of other triple-A titles like Metal Gear Solid: V, Dying Light, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to name a few. The developer, Ready at Dawn, gave the typical reasoning for the delay, explaining how more time was needed to craft the game to perfection. "we have decided to spend some extra time to deliver on the promise we made . . . you can expect The Order: 1886 to come exclusively to the PlayStation 4 in early 2015." They said. View attachment: 2432359-the+order+1886+shot.jpg Are you pleased that The Order: 1886 has been delayed so that it can be adjusted and fixed to the appropriate state a game should launch in, or has this solidified your reasoning that the PlayStation 4 needs more games soon as it's running dry? Let me know below! Destiny 'Art of', 'Making of', and Poster Collection Books Revealed Destiny has had much hype leading up to it's fall release, but we're all left scratching our heads on scarce details for two main deals which Bungie has remained silent on, Destiny Books, and a Collector's Edition, and while the Collector's Edition has yet to be mentioned, we have received confirmation of three Destiny books!

  17. Bungie recently released a new trailer for their new game Destiny With E3 coming closer and closer Bungie wanted to give us a video that shows everything you need to know about Destiny. Here is is: This trailer shows us the idea behind Destiny. We, the gamers, are the last defenders of Earth. So everything is based around Earth. Familiar surroundings and atmosphere everywhere. And then to give the game their own twist they threw in tons of whacky stuff. Then they go into the abilities a bit more. Each class has it's own special ability. The Titan can lift enemies, the Hunter can double jump and the Warlock can slide. Not major game changing abilities. Then there is your super which allows you to deal tons of damage in a little amount of time. Supers are not class bound so when you find one you will be able to use it no matter what class you are. Destiny is designed to bring gamers together. You of course will all go your seperate ways but there are times when your paths might cross. These times are usually huge events where you can work together to bring down a huge force of enemies. Just fire a bullet in the direction of an enemy and you're in the game. Don't feel like it? Just ignore the choas that is going on right in front of your eyes and go your own way. 'Customising your guardian will not be through series of menu's and buttons. You will be in a central marketplace where every guardian has come together to see how they can become a legend.' This is still a bit unclear to me. Time will tell I guess.

  18. Custom Games Matchmaking [Waiting since Halo3] [Fixed] Halo 4 forge with more features = Adding Ai [Ai as in everything from UNCS Grunts, to enemies, to campaign bosses] New Forge Mode: Campaign Forge [Lets you go into a campaign mission, choose a checkpointed section, or area, and build there and complete the mission how you would've liked too, or just use that area to make a game mode in] Remove armor abilities from starting load outs and make them pick up if you still choose to keep them in. Make the DMR a pick up, not the BR. Dynamic Animations such as juking to the left or right as you hit jump. [Maybe] Graphics. Coop. Fun mode where you get to play as an ODST. [Maybe as an activated skull, or a custom setting.] In Custom Games allow you to play as: Forerunners, Elites, Hunters, Etc. Be able to use the War Sphinx in custom games.
  19. The Destiny loot system explained. As most of you know, the new game Destiny will feature some sweet loot. Now I heard some complaints of some of you that you were afraid that random players would just swoop by and steal all your hard earned loot. Bungie assured you that your loot is YOURS. Even the ammo they drop is YOURS. It drops only for you and the other players get their own loot (If they helped that is). So no Borderlands like weapon stealing. Here's a video on the matter Now for a little breakdown. At 0:36 you see in the top right corner that the player is participating in an event and is on the Gold Tier. So there are several tiers probably indidcating how much of the loot you will get. My guesses are that gold will be the highest. (But there's always platinum and stuff) Also, the higher the level, the better your armour will look. You will be really able to see the difference between a level 3 guardian and a level 23 guardian by the way their armour looks. The level 3 guardian will have close to basic armour and the level 23 guardian will have a lot of details and decorations. Then there's also the weapons. Destiny features a three weapon system. No this does not mean only 3 weapons, but three weapon categories. The first one is your Primary weapon which can either be a rifle or a hand cannon. Then there is the Special weapon which can be a shotgun or a sniper rifle kind of weapon. And then there is you Heavy weapon which features rocket launchers and heavy machine guns. Also, the weapons are not class bound like again for example Borderlands 2 that has specific items for specific classes. The Destiny armoury will be open to all classes. Whether you are a Hunter, Warlock or Titan. What are your thoughts? As always leave comments down below! Thank you for reading!

  20. The Destiny Beta has been confirmed to kick off in July according the Activsion/Blizzard first quarter report. The Beta for Destiny is coming in July, two months before the official release date as the report shows but no full date for the beta release has been given yet. There are speculations that it could launch on Bungie Day (July 7th) which is pretty safe to assume as it is Bungie's own annual festivity and what better way to celebrate it than launching the Beta on that day. But whatever the date is Playstation fans will be first to play it as Bungie announced last year that the Playstation will get early access to it. It is not yet confirmed how long Xbox fans will have to wait for it to come to the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One after it releases on the PS3 and PS4, it could possibly be something along the lines of a week or so. To gain access to the beta you have to pre-order the game to receive a code at participating retailers where you then enter it over at bungie.net. So are you going to be participating in the beta? Are you getting the game at all? Source: files.shareholder.com

  22. Bungie has just released a new Destiny gameplay video titled "The Devils' Lair" as it follows a team of guardians fighting their way through the ruins of Old Russia. In this seven minute long video we see a Fireteam of Guardians on a strike mission beneath the ruins of the Cosmodrome in a location called "The House of The Devils' Lair" in Old Russia as they take on the Fallen and the Hive, two of five enemy races Humanity will battle against to save Earth and their colonies. Destiny is a completely online game that encourages team play with co-operative modes that involves raids and strike missions as it is shown in the video. This has been the first proper video of solid full length gameplay since Bungie's presentation at last years E3. Fans itching to see more Destiny content will surely be tied over until more of it returns in just less than two months at this years E3. What did you think of the new gameplay, are you looking forward to the game? This post has been promoted to an article
  23. A new Halo 5 multiplayer mode in the making! Although we don't have much info on the upcoming Halo title we now do know 343i wants to implement a new mode in the Halo 5 multiplayer. 343i has started hirering for a person who can: -Implement and execute competetive multiplayer features -Fine tune the existing multiplayer experience -Create and implement a brand new multiplayer mode Now the last one seems highly interesting since even 343i doesn't know what it'll be. Although they would have to give their blessing first. What kind of mode would you like to see in Halo 5? "And now for something completely different." Destiny will have no initial PvP. Got the game and wanna shoot some other players? Tough luck, because Bungie has made it so that you'll first need to play a couple of hours before you can blast your opponents to bits. Now I know this sounds bad but there is logic behind this madness. In Destiny you will start without a 'super attack' and without this you'd be completely destroyed by opponents who do have this ability. And who likes getting blown up without defence? In order to 'unlock' competetive multiplayer you'll first have to complete several missions, get you super attack and find a special weapon. Only then you'll fully understand how the game works and you'll be on your merry way. See at as some kind of tutorial. There hasn't been much info on the competetive multiplayer side of Destiny so far. Keep an eye out on E3 this year. Do you like the way Bungie handles this situation? As always leave answers and comments down below! Thank you for reading!

  24. Bungie presented us with a new video of gameplay from Destiny yesterday. The video didn't really stand out all that much from what Bungie has shown us before over the last number of months in terms of gameplay. But there are some things that may be worth pointing out and discuss about, certain things that could raise a few questions regarding the lore. So while we wait or hope for something new to see at E3 let's see what interesting we can divulge from the latest video that could be of interest. So first up after the opening with the Bungie and Destiny logos the video quickly snapped to a cutscene of a squadron of Guardians in their personal ships, racing through the sky to commence a strike mission against the Fallen and Hive in Old Russia. As you can see from the picture we can get a good idea of how much detail and options are available for customizing our personal ships. The three ships are very different from each other, they are completely different in shape and have quite a difference in size and colour from each other. This image seems to tell us that we will be to choose from a variety of types or models of ships and of course, as expected, give them our own coat of paint. The video then fades to a map of a part of the Solar System showing the Earth, the Moon, Mars, another planet that appears to be Venus and The Traveler. The words that are placed between the planets may raise some questions. We can see the word "Tower" beside The Traveler and just before the screen shot was taken as the video was fading from the three ships to the planets the word "Reef" was above The Traveler and between the two other planets and a word that spelled "Crucible" to the right of the Earth. Now the "l" and "e" of the word are not seen in the shot as the video was blared at that moment as the video was changing scenes. So why are these words placed on the map? Could they be names of the controlled area's in space that the Guardians still have in their power? Here we have another map but it is only of the Earth this time. If you look at the shape of the land and the way it borders with the oceans, you will see that it is completely different from how it is today in the real world. Has the sea level risen? Has the continental plates shifted that much in as little as seven hundred years? That one is doubtful but who knows, it is a video game after all anything is possible. It will most likely be a big question fans will discover the answer to when they play the game. Again we have another map of different locations that border one another and makes up the place or a part of a plce called "Old Russia". The locations that surrounds The Devils' Lair are called King's Watch, Rocket Yard, Gateway, Blind Steepes, Delta South (I think), Moth Yard, Sky Watch, Dry Sea and along there is Forgotten Shore. These will possibly be all explorable locations in the game. So has any of this got you thinking about what you will discover in the game? This post has been promoted to an article
