Ever heard of D4? If yo have a keen memory for games that really didn't have a marketing campaign, you might remember seeing the Xbox One exclusive back at E3 last year. Since then it hasn't really kicked up a fuss, which makes the surprise reveal of its super close release date so weird.

One thing that Destiny got wrong, in my opinion, was its skill tree – which wasn’t so much of a tree as much as a linear progression of skills. Borderlands does skills so much better, I think – by actually making it a bit of a branching tree. And now you can play with Borderlands: The Pre Sequel!’s trees from the comfort of your browser.

For a while earlier this year it looked like maybe, just maybe, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain would somehow make it to shelves before the end of the year. That's not happening, but there is some good news. While the Phantom Pain won't come this year, it'll definitely be out next year.

As an Assassin’s Creed fan, I’m really being spoilt for choice this year. There’s not one, but two very different games hitting shelves in December, with Unity set for current-gen and Rogue aiming at keeping older console players happening. One would expect that both would be coming to PC too, but that’s not the case. For now at least.

Before the local release of the PlayStation 4, we featured a series of articles looking into the history of PlayStation – so why not give it another go on the eve of the Xbox One’s local release? Let’s take a brief look at the history of the console that started it all for the Xbox brand.

One thing I found odd with the retail release of Destiny was the relative lack of public events that happened, at least when compared with their frequency in the alpha and beta. That’s soon changing – along with a few other things to make the game just a little more fun.

Quite probably the best selling football sim of the year is out next week, though its arguably better contemporary gets a demo release today. Most of the less casual FIFA players already know everything they need or want to know about the upcoming footie game, but for those who have a more casual stance to the game, here’s a new video from EA showing you things.

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.

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.

With everyone going absolutely bonkers over the launch of Destiny, it’s easy to forget that there are actually still a ton of games coming out over the next few weeks. Some are further than others, but most of them are less than a month away. Take Forza Horizon 2 for example. It’s looking like one of the most stunning games to launch on the Xbox One yet, and it’s out in really, really soon.

Destiny was released a few days ago and seeing that the game is so reliant on being populated by other people no media in the world received advanced copies. So here we sit a full 3 days later and there are only 8 Metacritic affiliated sites who have posted reviews yet.

Game streaming is all the rage. Steam lets you stream your own games from your desktop to your TV, but more ambitious folk like OnLive and the now Sony-owned Gaikai are planning to stream games straight to compatible devices over the internet. According to unsourced, unverified reports on Neowin, Microsoft is planning on doing the same – but going a step further, by beaming games to your browser.
