Destiny is great, but it is missing some tricks

This weekend was the first time I’ve personally been able to put a good couple of hours into Destiny and the game is truly phenomenal. Bungie has done something incredible here and I truly think this will be the defining game of the next few years.

Why Destiny won’t let you cross play between PS3 and PS4

For those of you in the PlayStation world, this weekend was probably filled with lots of shooting and running around with your friends in Destiny. However, if all your friends aren't on the same platform, you can't play together - even if you're all on PlayStation. Bungie has a reason for this.

FIFA 15’s going for the heart

This year’s iteration of EA’s beautiful game simulator, FIFA 15, has a number of new features that purport to make the game even better. You’d be hard pressed to convince somebody like me that there are new things, but such is the nature of annualised games; those who play them every year will see them while the rest of us look on like confused muppets. One of those apparent features this year is one of emotion.

Microsoft shuts down Xbox Original programming

One of Microsoft’s big pushes with the Xbox One was that it was to feature original TV programming – much in the same way that digital streaming services Netflix and Hulu do. It would have had shows that catered specifically to the Xbox demographic. In fact one game, Quantum Break, even relied on it – using a live action series interweaved with gameplay as its hook. That whole division is being closed.

Magic: The Gathering finally allows custom decks

I used to play quite a bit of Magic: The Gathering in my youth. It was always social, never at any sort of competitive level -  though I stopped playing around bout the time I discovered how much fun boobs (and yes, the people they were attached to) could be. I’ve thus enjoyed the digital version of the game immensely; where it’s found a home on my tablet. It’s always had one rather big negative though; the lack of a genuinely customisable deck. That’s changed with Magic 2015.

Xbox One sales have doubled since the Kinect was dropped

Ever since Microsoft debuted the Kinect a couple if years ago, it’s been a hard sell for the company. The pinnacle of wiggle tech, the response to the device by gamers hasn’t exactly been overwhelming. And it received a less than enthusiastic welcome when the Xbox One initially bundled the hardware with the console. Times changed, and Microsoft eventually dropped the Kinect as a mandatory Xbox One organ. And that’s had a positive effect on sales.

Isn’t it about time Microsoft and Sony regulated clans?

I don’t need to tell you that gaming is big business and competitive gaming is breaking new ground at the moment and bringing a lot of money and corporate eyes into our nice little world. But with that comes responsibilities and that is where the main players are letting gamers down at the moment.

Lionel Messi is once again on the cover of FIFA 15

It’s a rare occurrence when the best player on the planet in a singular sport is also generally respected as one of the nicest people on the planet. So it is without any surprise that EA Sports have revealed that Lionel Messi will once again grace the front cover of FIFA 15.

Well fret not, wannabe five-star amigos, because you can join Trevor, Michael and Franklin in San Andreas for cheap thanks to an Xbox Live sale that currently happens to be on.

FFD: October is madness! What games will you be ignoring?

You may have noticed the dearth of noteworthy games being released this month, or indeed next month. We’re in that slump. That changes a bit in September with the local release of the Xbox One, and of course, Destiny. Then in October, everything goes balmy. Just about every game you’re waiting for this year is out in that one little month. With the price of games and the time investment, we’re all going to be forced to ignore a few for now. Which ones will be taking the backseat?

The Evolution Of – Halo

Microsoft may not have as many exclusives under their belt as Sony or Nintendo, but one thing they do have is a game franchise in the form of Halo. Since 2001, Microsoft, Bungie and the successor studio 343 Industries have been releasing Halo games, with would be competitors looking to earn the title of Halo. That’s a 13 year history, one that has seen the game evolve over the years.
