Destiny drops new details, screens

Many Bothans died to bring us this new information about the interstellar game Destiny. Seriously, what’s with the Bothans and dying all the time? Anyway, check out some new screenshots and details on the game while I sweep these corpses up of Bothans who died to bring me my lunch.

The Xbox One beta program is causing drive issues?

Back on the 27th of November I posted an article showing how to fix the problem with Xbox One not loading game discs. In essence you needed to turn it off and on again.  Then earlier in February Geoff posted a fix to the Xbox One black screen of death.

The Titanfall beta had two million participants

So how about that Titanfall, huh? The beta kicked off last week, most of us downloaded it and had a blast playing it. Developer Respawn Entertainment opened up the flood gates last week, stress-testing their servers and seeing just how far they could push the game. And after having two million folks participate, I think they did a swell job.

Wolfenstein: The New Order arrives May 20,includes Doom Beta access

The last Wolfenstein game was, quite simply, crap. Dull, generically designed and thoroughly boring. But you can’t keep a good franchise down, and it was only a matter of time before a new Wolfenstein arose. And this one looks like it has the reich stuff.

Titanfall will run just fine on a crap PC

Titanfall is a beautiful game. There’s no way around that fact, as the core focus on multiplayer action has resulted in a game engine that runs fast, smooth and looks good. Naturally, top of the line PC’s will crank out the best visuals. But how about more modest computers? How will the game run on that hardware.

What are your beta expectations?

I've been thinking a lot about betas recently. It started when I played the beta for FFXIV: A Realm Reborn, but it's come back after previewing The Elder Scrolls Online and preparing to play the Titanfall beta. I have certain expectations for Betas - do you have the same?

Titanfall Beta extended

We have been thoroughly enjoying the Titanfall Beta. Well, all of us except Gavin who has been suffering with lack of real internet thanks to his line being dirty - I don't want to know what he uses the internet for that has made his physical line that dirty. We were getting sad that the end was nigh, but now the end is less nigh as the beta has been extended.

Titanfall Xbox One Impressions

Over the weekend I was able to get hands on with Titanfall on the Xbox One. After playing it on the PC I had high expectations for a similarly excellent experience on the console. Is there much to say about Titanfall in regards to the two versions?

Titanfall PC Beta Impressions

I’m not normally a fan of first person shooters, especially modern military Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta style FPS’s. Titanfall is different: it has giant fighting robots. But is that it? Is it just Call of Duty with robots?

EA: Nothing wrong with BF4 launch

Games have been struggling at launch lately. Well, any game with online components, that is. Seeing as EA keeps pushing for an always online experience, it makes sense that their games keep failing at launch. However, they apparently don't see it that way.

The Elder Scrolls Online Preview: Tamrielly un-fun

It was a mission playing The Elder Scrolls Online Beta this weekend for a variety of reasons. In the end, I managed to log a bunch of hours with my awesome Red Guard character, but is this the next big thing or will the hype train pass us by on this one?

No-one knows the way into Titanfall Beta

Beta testing is a major part of a game's release, particularly any game with online elements. Even with beta testing, many games struggle with server issues and other glitches that simply couldn't be seen without a large enough testing population. Titanfall looks to be an enormous release for Respawn and EA, presumably running a huge beta test - yet with two weeks to go, many still don't know if they can take part.
