Grand Theft Auto V current-gen will launch on November 18, PC version coming next year photo
Grand Theft Auto V current-gen will launch on November 18, PC version coming next year
by Chris Carter

[Update: Rockstar has confirmed these details alongside of a November 18 release date for PS4 and Xbox One, and a January 27, 2015 date for PC. You'll get $1,000,000 in-game bonus cash if you pre-order, new vehicles are in, and GTA Online will have an increased player count (up to 30).]

According to a leak from an attendee of the GameStop Manager's Conference in Anaheim California, the current-gen rework of Grand Theft Auto V is going to be massive. After seeing 30 minutes of gameplay, the attendee gave us a few details, such as "completely reworked foliage," "insane" draw distance increases including traffic flow and lights that aren't pre-rendered from a distance (like they are on Xbox 360 and PS3), and a completely redone water system.

Animal counts and texture work is reworked, and Rockstar allegedly stated that they wanted to improve animal interaction a la Red Dead Redemption. For all these improvements to really take shape, development was supposedly started before GTA V's release.

New content was briefly mentioned such as a new set of songs and more radio stations -- this was already confirmed previously by an in-game DJ voiceactor who stated that she was going back to the studio to record more voicework.

No release date was given other than "soon." Of course, a lot of this could be pure hype, but it's nice to hear about details like real-time traffic and light effects.

Our Destiny review is coming along nicely. I just hit level 20 on my Warlock and I'm slowly making my way up to the soft cap of Light Level 25 to get raid-ready for next week.

Here are some tips I've come up with along the way to make everything easier.

Review in Progress: Destiny (update) photo
Review in Progress: Destiny (update)
by Chris Carter

[Since a large part of Destiny is found within the raid system upon reaching max level, we'll be publishing a Review in Progress for the game over the course of a few weeks. Here are our thoughts about the live version.]

Destiny finally landed this week, and based off my initial impressions, my first foray into the world Bungie built was mixed. Having worked my way up to level 11 at that point, I was mostly experiencing the basic game modes and enjoying PVP quite a bit, but I was very disappointed in the story.

I have a better idea of what to expect now after reaching the max level of 20, and while I'm having fun, I'm still not blown away with what Bungie has given us so far.

Review: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call photo
Review: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call
by Chris Carter

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy was a very nice surprise. After many people had become disenfranchised with the series due to a number of mishaps and weak core entries, Theatrhythm reminded us that Square still had reverence for all of its classic characters, and of course -- its timeless music.

As a sequel, Curtain Call doesn't really change a whole lot from its predecessor, shortcomings and all, but it does pack in a whopping 221 songs on top of the already winning formula.
