Destiny Beta- Final impressions and some questions for the full game

As the Destiny Beta comes to a close, it’s left a few impressions with me I’d like to share, as well as a few questions I hope will be addressed in the full game. I spent close to twenty hours or so with the game, and tried to hit all of the modes. I tackled the five story missions on Earth, and was lucky enough to get to play the one on the Moon (which was only open for two hours on Saturday, July 26). I participated in Crucible matches, including the special Iron Banner events, getting to see maps on Earth (The Rusted Lands), on the Moon (Dead Sectors), and one on Venus (Shores of Time). I did the Strike mission against Sepiks Prime, and explored the Cosmodrome and the areas surrounding it in Old Russia...

New releases for the week of Monday, July 28, 2014

This last week of July isn’t overly big with new releases, but it does have a few of note. The Last of Us Remastered releases on the PS4, so those who didn’t have a PS3 can see what everyone was raving about, as Naughty Dog’s version of a post apocalyptic America is well worth your time. Rogue Legacy makes the leap from the PC to Sony’s platforms for those wanting a dungeon crawler fix, and there’s a new LEGO game for the handhelds. On the home video front, Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan, The Fountain) biblical epic Noah debuts, as does the Cameron Diaz comedy The Other Woman. Those who remember the delightfully bizarre David Lynch series Twin Peaks can dive in all over again with the release of Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery...

The announcement was made during the Skybound Entertainment panel at the San Diego Comic-Con. No start date was given for the third season, but it’s likely to happen in 2015, as Telltale Games has both Tales From the Borderlands and Game of Thrones still slated for this year. No details were given, and its uncertain as to if Clementine will once again return as the main character or if someone new will be the season’s focus...

The Walking Dead: Season Two- Episode 4 “Amid the Ruins”- Tough decisions during tough times

The penultimate episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two has arrived, and for the most part it’s a doozy. Picking up where the end of Episode 3, “In Harm’s Way”, left off, “Amid the Ruins” finds our heroine Clementine and her fellow survivors in dire straits, surrounded by a walker herd. A tough choice comes almost immediately, and they don’t get much easier as the episode goes on. There may even be times where you cringe at your decisions, making you wonder how you could decide such things. As it has for this season of Telltale Games The Walking Dead your choices always seem to be between bad and worse, and do you let morals dictate your pick or do you choose the more practical approach and base things on your continued survival...

Destiny Beta- Day Four

This will be a bit shorter than the previous posts, as I’ve basically exhausted what the beta has to show me for now. I’ve spent a dozen hours with the game, and so far it’s proven to be a lot of fun to play. Haven’t had any issues with the game. No lags, no crashes, no freezes. So hats off to Bungie for a smooth beta test so far. I created two new characters today, a male Exo Hunter and a female Human Titan. That gives me a character representing each class and each race. Gameplay wise there doesn’t seem to be a tremendous amount of difference between them, though that could change as you level up higher. For now the main differences seem to lay with the melee attack and your special attack. Warlocks seem to have the most powerful melee attack, using a Force-like push against enemies...
