Driveclub suffered a massive delay late last year, with developer Evolution stating that there were massive technical issues with the racer. After playing it last year, I think there was a lot more wrong than just technical issues, but that's hopefully why the delay was so long. We're close to the release date, and some players have already dived into Driveclub.

The Crew’s second beta PC beta goes live today, and runs until this weekend. We’ve got a giant stack of keys to give away, so that you can experience what it’s like to drive cross country… at 30 frames per second.

The Witcher 3 demonstration at Gamescom really blew me away. The game is highly anticipated, to the point where people may forget that it has a younger sibling in the works too. The Witcher: Battle Arena is a mobile MOBA from the same company set in the same universe, and it’s looking for beta testers.

I was booked in for an hour of hands-on with Destiny at Gamescom, and I was excited to get to play something new; some little bit of hitherto unseen bit of Destiny, and share that experience with all of you. My excited turned to disappointment when I sat down in my session, only to realise I’d be playing bits from the beta again.

The Destiny Beta was an awesome experience for most of you - you made your perfect guardian (or three) and go in on all the exploration and destruction. You maybe even bonded with your guardian; you did create him/her after all. Well, it’s time to shed a tear. Your guardian is dead.

Those of you who played the Beta for Destiny know just how slick and polished the game already is. It not only plays well, but it also looks and feels very ready. So, how much will it change before launch? Activision says not a lot.

The Destiny Beta sorta consumed people while it was open. It wasn't just a cool game to play, it was aesthetically stunning - visually and aurally. While we can't give you more gameplay before launch, at least we can remind you of how awesome it sounded while playing.

The Destiny Beta was a big deal. It's gotten tons of attention and helped the developers fix the game in ways they couldn't have anticipated without millions of people pushing capacity to its limits. Now Bungie has rewarded us with an infographic.

The Destiny Beta is now done and dusted, and many of you will be suffering bouts of withdrawal as you wait for the game’s September release. Though I didn't get to play it nearly as much as I’d hoped, I rather enjoyed the small sample of the game’s final content on offer. Just how much content will there be in the final game though? According to information data-mined from the beta, quite a bit.

The Crew made it really difficult for me to even start playing. This week’s beta was definitely a test rather than just a chance for players to get in on some racing action early. Issues aside, I finally got to play through a sizeable chunk of what The Crew has to offer, and the Ubisoft open-world formula is immediately recognisable.

With the amount of hype around this Beta, I can't even imagine how excited people will be when Destiny finally launches. It's a seriously fun game, and we gave away a bunch of codes so people could play. But now, you can get in on the action even without a code. Of course, there are still some "standard requirements".

You’ve already heard what Gavin has had to say regarding the early taste of Destiny. You’ve probably already ignored him, because what do Liverpool supporters know, amirite? I had a blast playing Destiny this weekend, an experience that I documented and went over. Here’s five things from the recent beta that impressed me, because you can totally trust a guy who has no strong feelings one way or the other to your favourite football teams.
