Review in Progress: Destiny: The Dark Below photo
Review in Progress: Destiny: The Dark Below
by Chris Carter

Destiny was released earlier this year, and like many hyped games, it failed to deliver on its promises. The good news? It was still a well crafted shooter, and practically everything involving the actual gameplay was excellent. In fact, I find it hard to go back to other shooters now -- that's how good Destiny feels.

Unfortunately, the folks over at Bungie made a number of design choices that prevent players from consistently having fun. There was also backpedaling over the past few months -- some of which led to changes to the raid -- that brought even more glitches alongside of the update.

So far in my testing, The Dark Below plays out similarly. The core of the game is still intact, but there's a lot of weird choices that prevent it from reaching its potential.

Microsoft is the publisher of Rise of the Tomb Raider

Ever since Microsoft's gamescom exclusivity reveal, there's been plenty of speculation about the state of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Although it was soon found out to be a timed-exclusive, there are still many uncertainties sur...

Completing the new questline in Destiny is complicated, here's how photo
Completing the new questline in Destiny is complicated, here's how
by Chris Carter

After booting up the new Destiny expansion The Dark Below this morning, I completed the three new story missions. Upon finishing the questline I saw that the weekly Heroic and Nightfall missions were blacked out, telling me to "complete the new quests."

Utterly confused, I ended up doing a few more bounties for Eris, the new NPC, and found out how to unlock them. It's not straightforward, but here's how to do it!

Our own Jonathan Holmes was on the Russian news to talk about Australia's GTA V

Just last week, Target of Australia announced that it would no longer carry copies of Grand Theft Auto V due to the game's violent content. No big surprise there; Australia, after all. But, some don't think that the mov...

Warface is noface, to be displaced and not replaced on the Xbox 360 marketplace

Crytek hasn't been doing so hot critically lately, with the recent releases of Ryse and Warface. I would have completely forgotten that the latter game had existed if it weren't for the ridiculous name, which immediately...

New Resident Evil HD remake priced and dated, and it's cheap!
by Chris Carter

Capcom has just sent word over that Resident Evil remake will be available on January 20, 2015, for $19.99. It'll hit the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and the Xbox One "all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft" (bwahaha they still have to do this with their PR).

For those of you who don't remember, this is a digital-only release, and will sport 1080p for current-gen consoles and 720p for past-generation systems. You'll also be able to flip between the 4:3 ratio or 16:9 widescreen options.

Yep, I'm in.

Payday doesn't have much to be thankful for in its Christmas carol

Crime doesn't have a slow season. You strike when opportunity presents itself. If that means getting your ass out of bed on Christmas morning and proverbially crossing the Delaware River, you do it. But, all that doesn't mea...

Here are some day-one thoughts on The Crew photo
Here are some day-one thoughts on The Crew
by Chris Carter

Ubisoft recently notified the press that it wasn't going to send out early copies of The Crew. Instead, critics would have to experience everything at launch and beyond, meaning there would be no reviews for the game at release. That's a bummer for anyone who pre-ordered and has no idea of what to expect.

But fear not, as Brittany Vincent and I have obtained copies of The Crew, and while she's hard at work giving you the full rundown in the future, I'm here to give a few quick thoughts for all of you who haven't picked up your pre-orders yet.

Another Telltale game, another set of screenshots. I'm still ambivalent about the oil paint aesthetic used in Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series. Some shots look fantastic, and others are blurry messes with weird kaleido...
