In FIFA’s Ultimate team mode, Trade offers were a way for players to directly exchange items with one another, bypassing the need for the thing’s built-in auction system. that’s cool, as it allowed for a sort of barter system or for people to share items with friends. As is typical for this sort of thing though, it was abused by scammers. It’s now being yanked out of the game.

Far Cry is never shy of dabbling in the slightly insane. In the last entry, that was almost entirely encapsulated in Vaas alone, but Far Cry 4 seems to sprinkle this insanity all around its mechanics. That's why instead of a fancy new weapon, Far Cry 4 has weaponized elephants. Oh, hey PETA!

Bungie’s Destiny is one of the more hyped and marketed games in recent history, joining the likes of Titanfall and Watch Dogs. It’s the first game the studio’s made since it created Halo; the game that redefined the shooter experience on consoles. Destiny was meant to change things, to redefine the genre anew. Unfortunately, like those games, it fails to live up to the hubbub its created.

The original Tales of Xillia stands as one of my favourite entries into the long running JRPG franchise. Don't get me wrong, the game was flawed, plagued with odd story pacing and bland environments, but none of that deterred me from falling in love with the loveable cast and awesome battle system. Fast forward a year and the sequel is looking to carry on its predecessor's legacy, flaws and all.

Destiny has, for the most part, had a relatively smooth launch, which is extremely rare for games that require a constant online connection. Those alpha and beta tests earlier this year definitely went to good use, but there are a few little hiccups swimming around here and there. Bungie is working hard to fix them most, including an oddly named error affecting PS3 players.

Gone are the days where Resident Evil actually felt like a horror. Most of the franchise’s core titles have leaned more on the action side of things, and I’d even go as far as calling Resident Evil 6 a straight up third-person shooter. Revelations, previously only a 3DS exclusive, went back to basics. People really loved it, which is why Revelations 2 looks no different.

Destiny kicked off what is bound to be a very busy, and expensive, few weeks. After a boring and quiet Winter it’s now time for literally all the games to come out, mostly starting in the first week of October. One game coming out during that week is Alien: Isolation, and it doesn’t look like you’ll need too much PC power to ruin sleeping with the lights off for the near future.

According to many, Activision has spent – or indeed will spend – half a billion Dollars on the development, production and marketing of Bungie’s latest game, Destiny.  That’s a heck of a lot of money to pour in to a video game. Activision’s quite bullish about it though, expressing that they have faith in the product. It may be well founded faith; according to a delightful press release we received yesterday, Activision has already sold-in more than $500 000 000 worth of Destiny stock.

Right, Destiny is out – which means many of you have been playing the game since yesterday. Very many of you are likely further than the point you got to in the beta. that means that not only have you gone to the Moon, but you’ve probably hit Venus and beyond.

There are some times where having to play games for a living becomes a chore. It usually starts with a game, one that makes me regret every waking moment I spend with it. I want to stop playing, but I can't, because I have to finish it to see if there's any shred of value that someone like you can find in it.

We already know that we'll be taking Paris by storm during the French Revolution in Assassin's Creed Unity later this year. Assassin's Creed Rogue will finish off the Kenway saga, finalizing the events in the Americas and wrapping up the story. However, Ubisoft is releasing a collection of all the games in the Americas, but I'm wondering at whom this is targeted.

Yes it’s finally here, the day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. Destiny was released this morning and you can virtually hear the entirety of Activision and Bungie's staff holding their collective breaths to see how the game is received.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is a new start for the franchise when it releases later this year. It’s a PC and new-gen only game, with new visuals and gameplay ideas. But that doesn’t mean that the older generation of consoles will be left out this year, as the series takes one final stab on a pair of platforms that helped shape it. And this time, the game has lived long enough to see itself become the villain.

Happy Destiny day! Sure it might not be the 9th just yet, but Destiny's servers go live a little later today, meaning you and your Fireteam can jump into this year's most anticipated shooter a little early. If you're playing on an older console, Destiny's world might not look as beautiful, but Activision want to help you with that.
