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.

Release dates are almost irrelevant for games that require a constant online connection. Sure you could physically get the game on launch day, but you’re at the mercy of the servers when it comes to actually starting. So with Destiny on the horizon, when exactly will we be able to hop in?

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.

We haven't had many video game adaptations of The Walking Dead, but there's only really one that actually works.

Well, that game's being made now.

I will be perfectly honest. The last Call of Duty I dedicated a fair amount of time to was Black Ops, way back in 2010. I hadn’t really paid any attention to the upcoming entry, at least not until I was whisked off to the multiplayer reveal, shortly after landing in Cologne, Germany. Will this be the entry that shakes up the formula?

Last week 2K began teasing something to do with BioShock. Many of us thought they were ready to continue with the franchise after the closure of Irrational Games earlier this year. Not only did their announcement yesterday shoot those rumors down in flames, they revealed a port that no one really saw coming.

Well, sort of. MOBA’s are very definitely the in thing at the moment, with just about every single development house on the planet busy on some form of MOBA. And of course, Borderlands developer Gearbox wants in on that action too. Where most MOBA games take their roots from Real-Time strategy games though, Gearbox’s Battleborn finds its inspiration in, where else, first person shooters.

The people over at id Software made many nostalgic fans weak at the knees during E3. They released the first teaser trailer for Doom 4, which has now been conveniently named back to just Doom. Just to get everyone all confused when actually trying to talk about the game without referring to the original.

Destiny's website got an update, giving us all kinds of new information about the lore, environments and classes. There's a ton of new information, and it's making the game look even more appealing - and less Halo-esque, sort of.
