As Destiny winds down following the long metamorphosis into its final form ahead of the release of Destiny 2 in September, playing it has put me into a reflective mood. It feels like I’m saying goodbye to an old friend, one with whom I’ve had profound conversations and suffered crippling hangovers – one with whom I’ve debated and argued and occasionally fallen out, but one with whom I’ve always reconciled in the end. Now that friend is going away, and I’m going to miss it. I remember watching the E3 reveal and seeing the name Bungie attached to it and ... Read More »
A few months back we wrote about what we felt could be further expanded when a true sequel for Destiny would be announced. Now that we know Destiny 2 exists and the premise behind it, which we was something we predicted, we thought we could dive into the latest grimore cards to further speculate what’s on the horizon in Destiny 2. First, all the clues leading to the Cabal making a push to compensate for their defeats at the hands of the Guardians and Oryx is obviously the main story for Destiny 2. Lead by their commander Ghaul (while resisting ... Read More »
Since Titanfall 2 released last year, I’ve spent a good amount of hours both tearing apart the IMC in the campaign, and more so through multiplayer. Being an avid Titanfall lover, it’s the one title I was looking forward to most in 2016. But the past few months, I’ve also found myself returning to the original. You see, as excited as I was, and don’t get me wrong, the sequel is still a stellar release in its own right. It just fails to capture the magic, for me. Whilst we are bouncing around some excellent new maps in our shiny ... Read More »
Ghost Recon: Wildlands was available to a select few gamer's that had the opportunity to put the game through its paces in a closed beta environment. As with any beta offering, you can expect a mix of both subtle and drastic changes to the final product based on the feedback received. That said, the closed beta should still give us enough insight to understand enough to get a fix on what we can expect when the final game is released. One of our Twitch team, Chris Nis, recently broadcast his time playing the game for the first time. We caught ... Read More »
It’s easy to forget sometimes, games we all loved in the past. The industry is awash with endless sequels. Guaranteed releases year in year out (we’re looking at you Call of Duty and endless sports games). Last year saw the cult Mirrors Edge receive a prequel, eight years after the original was released on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. And that got me thinking. What would I like to see return? There’s many a game series, or one hit wonder I’ve enjoyed in my 25+ year gaming life. And as I thought of my own ‘wish list’, I thought ... Read More »
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 ...

Anyone who has played Tom Clancy's The Division from the start will know it's been a heck of a roller coaster ride through periods of unbalanced gameplay and glitches - insert Ubisoft jokes here.  The core mechanics of the game itself are some of the most fun I've had in a game.  I did however take a long break during version 1.3 until update 1.4 came out. For those unfamiliar with the lifespan of The Division, when the game was updated to version 1.3 rewards were not progressive to help players move on to the next harder difficulty or challenge. ...

Look, we get it. You're one of the cool kids. You'll drop something before it becomes uncool just in case anyone even hints that you, too, might be uncool. You got back into high-tops before anyone else, you decided it's okay to not like fro-yo, and you were the first kid on the street to microwave your Furby. You're a trendsetter. But, you know what's not cool? What just makes you look like the petty, entitled, smug fool that you are? "Does anyone still play that..." whenever anyone mentions the game that you no longer play because you don't want ... Read More »
Two weeks ago guardians welcomed back the Festival of the Lost to Destiny.  Festival of the Lost is fun live event created by Bungie for all to celebrate a Halloween like festival which guardians can wear masks of other characters while partaking in quests.  It's a simple event but last year's festival was a lot of fun giving players a reason to grind for cosmetic items.  Again this year the items are cosmetic but the event really failed in the eyes of the community.  Festival of the Lost this year is plagued with microtransactions while taking away reason to play ...
