I want to love The Division, but I just don't trust it yet photo
I want to love The Division, but I just don't trust it yet
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

This marks the second E3 we've seen Tom Clancy's The Division, an ambitious online open-world RPG that sees a players dealing with a disaster after society has fallen. This is also the second year in a row that we could not get our hands-on with the game.

Instead, Ubisoft played through a build for us. First they showed us what you all got to see during Ubisoft's press conference (video above). Then we got to see the same area, but during a nighttime setting.

Watch us play an hour's worth Destiny's open world photo
Watch us play an hour's worth Destiny's open world
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The folks at Bungie gave Destructoid full access to the Destiny Alpha just before E3. You may remember that I wasn't all that excited for the game the last time I saw it, but having full freedom to do whatever and being able to discover things on my own has really changed my opinion.

I'm way more excited for Destiny again now, and you can see why as Max Scoville and I play nearly an hour's worth of the open world aspect known as Patrols. Plus we went and checked out the social space hub called The Tower at the very end of our playthrough.

For more on Destiny, check out Chris Carter's full hands-on breakdown, and we'll have some videos of the multiplayer PvP stuff later today.

This is the studio behind all those amazing CG game trailers
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Blur is the studio behind all the amazing CG game trailers we've seen over the years. Batman, Halo, The Elder Scrolls Online, Prey II -- so many to list here. So, just watch their animation/FX reel they released this past week, highlighting their work.

It's totally okay to laugh once you see they also made the Goldfish crackers commercials too.
