I haven't played Destiny in weeks, and I don't plan on returning soon. I do know that millions of other people are still playing though and loving every social second, and I'm glad not everyone found it to be a waste of hard money. So if you're one of those people, here's a heads up on some server downtime.

The PS4 is gradually leveling up, gaining some of the features Sony promised fans all the way back at the initial reveal. SharePlay is one of the bigger features, allowing a friend to take over your game from another console. Thing is, they won't be getting the exact same experience.

A few weeks ago Riot Games revealed the latest champion to enter Summoner's Rift, Azir. Reading about his abilities gave me the impression that Azir would be an easy, crazy farming machine that was able to push lanes with his own towers. Easy wins, right? Well, Azir looks anything but easy to play.

Have you ever played RollerCoaster Tycoon? I remember playing the second one, and man was it a ton of fun! I built roller coasters that went on for days, only to have them shoot my guests up into the air. Oh, did I forget to finish the track? Everything is going according to plan! Park ratings went down but my park undoubtedly had the most legit adrenaline inducing rides. If you miss those good old days as much as I do, you’re in luck.There is a new game in the works.

Quake Live holds a special place in my heart. It's the only online game I've ever been banned from to this day, for apparently cheating. I really tried to understand how my a kill/death ratio lower than the temperature in Antarctica meant I was cheating, but I lost that case. Doesn't seem like it matters either, because Quake Live has changed.

Destiny is literally around the corner. I'm extremely excited to jump back into Bungie's online adventure on Xbox One with a few friends, but we're going to be missing out on quite a bit on content that only Sony players will get access to. Consider me jealous.

Riots Games have been a but slow in releasing new champions for their extremely popular MOBA, League of Legends. At least, they were earlier this year, with Gnar being unleashed just a few weeks ago. That holiday seems to be over, and already we’ve got our first look at probably the most broken new Champion I’ve ever seen.

Destiny might not have as many planets as, say, No Man's Sky, but that doesn't mean much if the planets themselves are large, detailed and fun to explore. We've seen Earth, a little bit of Mars and now Bungie has released the first look at a lush, tropical Venus.

Riot Games have been teasing their new champion for nearly a month now. The long lost relative to Teemo seems like an interesting new addition to the League of Legends roster. That’s probably because he changes from a cute little critter into a raging monster in no time at all.

As expected, EA Sports is taking up a big portion of EA’s Gamescom conference this morning. When you think of EA Sports though, FIFA is usually top of the list. This year, the world’s biggest football title is all about authenticity.

If you’re in the business of playing a MOBA there’s a pretty good chance you’re playing League of Legends. The free-to-play online title which launched before Dota 2 still has a respectable fan base, but one Ubisoft analyst says other studios shouldn’t learn how to make money from Riot Games.

It's been a while since Riot teased a new champion for their extremely popular MOBA, League of Legends. Before I was bitten by the DOTA bug, I was a massive LoL player, and I remember champion releases being a rather frequent thing. Riot could be getting back into that, with another Teemo-like character.

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.
