Bungie will be taking Destiny down today, 17 January, 2017, in preparation for a patch.  Bungie is preparing Hotfix 2.5.0.1 which addresses a couple of recent issues involving Xur and the new heavy machine guns brought to guardians during The Dawning.  Here is what Bungie has alluded to so far: Some Patrol missions in the Plaguelands are not reliably causing enemies to drop their respective objective items Xûr’s “Curio” inventory varies on a weekly basis, due to a limitation of his inventory space Weapon Stability on the Nova Mortis and Abbadon Exotic Machine Guns is inconsistent There will be full ...

I'm a huge fan of the Rock Band series and when Rock Band 4 was announced for this generation of consoles, I was screaming like a schoolgirl. Almost all of the tracks for the previous games and DLC would be available and wouldn't have to be repurchased - which amazed me since I've thrown around $600 towards DLC songs. I'm really not kidding either. I blindly purchased the full band kit and came home to find a key staple of the game missing - ONLINE MULTIPLAYER!  So yes, while the game actually launched on 6 October, 2015, it's not until nearly a ...

Last year was a great year for Xbox.  With the console holding strong in sales through multiple months and gaining ground on the competition, there was plenty reasons to celebrate.  With 2016 now closed, it's time to recap on how Xbox finished the year and they did it in style.  Some key figures reported on by corporate vice president for Xbox marketing Mike Nichols show that December 2016 was the highest sales month ever for Xbox One.  Even though the console launched in November 2013, three years later and the console sold more in that month than at launch.  On ...

Imagine you and your friend team up and were playing Overwatch.  You were communicating, playing the objectives, holding down choke points, and team shooting and winning fire fights just to have a round end and give the other team the win.  This is the unfortunate nature of what a new bug discovered by Reddit user Endjui is doing.  The video he posted showed his team up 3 - 0 with the round ending and then giving the other team four points.  This isn't an isolated issue as it has happened in Competitive.  Overwatch has always been focused on the fair ...

We all have heard the cliche of the New Year - "New Year, New You."  Well it looks like the folks at The Coalition are taking it to heart with title update 3 for Gears of War 4.  There are a couple of focus points on this update but a big part of it is punishing those rage quitters in online games as well as the normal fixes.  Here is what The Coalition had to say about their plan to reduce the amount of people who quit in the middle of games: Combatting quitting has been a top priority for us at ...

The folks at Media Mobile Technologies Global have developed many apps for Windows 10 and have now been tinkering around with a media player that is part of the Universal Windows Platform that works on Xbox One as well as Windows.  Called Media Player Ultra, the media player is listed to play hundreds of media formats and is great for anyone who wishes to use network media storage in part as a DLNA server.  What makes it best is that the media player is currently free for download.  Anyone who wishes to even test out media or connect a USB device to ...

Conan is a symbolic figure in a near prehistoric world where only might can help you survive.  The cunning of a building a base and fortifying it with everything to survive is just as key as the might you wield.  Funcom's Conan Exiles is looking to bring that world to life and is really starting to show some promise. In the style of Ark: Survival Evolved you will need to survive by gathering food and supplies while building a fortress worthy of the finest warriors.  This in depth building mechanic will immerse you into a world unlike any other and ...

What a way to bring in the new year than with video games.  They are always there when we need them and over time it just seems to get better and better.  How much longer do Xbox fans have to wait for that next best thing though?  It might not be very long at all. Once the new year hit, many Xbox heads went to Twitter and have been spewing out 2017 as the year of Scorpio.  Now we have been given very little information on the "most powerful console of all time" but there is reason to believe all ...
