Destiny's already made a ton of money, but you probably could've guessed that

Every now and then, when a videogame launches and does mega numbers, the publisher likes to toot its own horn a little bit. It should come as no surprise that this is the case with Destiny -- after all it was [...

Review in Progress: Destiny photo
Review in Progress: Destiny
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 initial thoughts about the live version.]

Bungie has a lot to prove coming off of Halo. It crafted a dynasty that really put console shooters on the map, and pretty much everyone reading this likely has at least one great memory with the franchise.

Here we are nearly seven years after the developer's split with Microsoft, and four years after its last game, Halo Reach. Destiny is quite an ambitious project, melding elements of MMOs alongside of the tried and true shooter-RPG formula -- so much so that it has created lingering doubts among the masses as to whether or not Bungie can pull it off.

While I am enjoying myself for the most part on my path to Destiny's elaborate endgame, I have to say the journey so far hasn't been quite as spectacular as I initially hoped.

Of course we checked out Far Cry 4's elephant booty physics at PAX photo
Of course we checked out Far Cry 4's elephant booty physics at PAX
by Brett Makedonski

Prior to this video being shot, Max may have taken a double dose of the assorted pills that truckers use to drive 36 consecutive hours. I can't be sure. It wasn't my day to keep track of him.

But, the point you should take away from this is how realistic that elephant's ass (probably) looks. With booty physics like that, it's no wonder Far Cry 4 ended up as one of our top games of PAX Prime.

I could've been a pirate ship but I was a disco ball instead in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel photo
I could've been a pirate ship but I was a disco ball instead in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
by Brett Makedonski

As I sat down for my appointment with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I had to make my toughest decision at PAX Prime. Running through Claptrap's capstone abilities, I was faced with the following dilemma: Do I want to become a pirate ship or a disco ball?

I wasn't exactly jarred by the wacky prospect. I mean, this is Borderlands we're talking about, and even more specifically, this is Claptrap. But, you seriously expect me to just select between those two like it ain't no thang?

I went disco ball. I can't say I regret my decision.

Cloudbase Prime alpha build available now, free to download photo
Cloudbase Prime alpha build available now, free to download
by Rob Morrow

Originally created for the 7DFPS Challenge in 2012, Cloudbase Prime is an attractive-looking low-poly FPS platformer by Tyrus Peace and is currently available for free in its 0.2 alpha state. You can download it here.

Set on a floating mining platform above a gas giant, you'll be tasked with destroying robotic enemies using your energy cannon and the Architect: a gizmo that can be used to manipulate the hex-based tiles that the mining platform is constructed from. 

The game reminds me a bit of Drunken Robot Pornography, and that's definitely not a bad thing in my book: It's got giant robots, high-flying platforming and first-person shooter elements. Oh yeah, did I mention that it's free?

For an idea of how the game plays, take a look at the developer's Walker Mech combat footage in the video above.
