Destiny 1
Games

Bungie’s most anticipated open world multiplayer first-shooter role-playing video game, Destiny, is currently being played by millions of gamers, and its reviews suggest that it is a game that is loved as well as hated by most. Despite its repetitive structure, the game is full of absolutely beautiful sci-fi worlds to explore, and apparently many properly hidden Easter eggs to find, and it looks like one of these Easter eggs is the Master Chief From Halo.

Destiny is a game that is loved for its amazingly well-tuned combat, dynamic in-game worlds and technical features, but at the same time, it is hated for the structure that holds it and makes it repetitive. However, all that doesn’t matter when you are on a hunt to find Easter eggs, which Destiny is surely full of. Bungie has a glorious history of Halo games, and it is nearly impossible that the developer skipped on adding any Halo-related Easter eggs in the game.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 console will turn 1 soon, and even though we have seen several jaw dropping next-gen video games running on this leading eighth generation console compared to its predecessor, there are still years ahead to see what it is capable of. However, advancements in the world of technology are inevitable, and that is apparently why Naughty Dog programmer and senior member of Sony’s central technology group known as ICE Team, Cort Stratton, believes that the PlayStation 4’s hardware is “no longer top-of-the-line.” However, it doesn’t mean that developers won’t be able squeeze it in the coming years.

Sony ICE Team Dev Believes That PlayStation 4’s Hardware is No Longer First-Class, But Next-Gen Games Have Nothing to Do With it

The latest PlayStation 4 is the leading eighth generation video game console right now, and it might even stay that way in the coming time, but Cort Stratton, who is a member of Sony’s eminent technology group known as ICE Team as well as a programer at Naughty Dog, thinks that the hardware that powers the PlayStation 4 console is already out of date. His claims are worth consideration as working with PS4’s GPU driver/graphics API, he has a good know-how about the console’s hardware.

Destiny, which ranks among some of the most anticipated games of 2014, landed on the last and new-gen video game consoles last week with immense hype, and the strategic release of the in-game content since its reveal combined with the arrant strength provided by the bright marketing, the game was quickly picked up by millions of gamers and critics. During the time until now, several major video game websites have released Destiny reviews, putting forward their thoughts on the game, and no matter how hyped the game was, it is apparently still Bungie’s worst game until now by review score.

Destiny Gets Lower Review Scores Compared to All Previously Released Major Titles By Bungie

Developed by Bungie, the creator of multi-billion dollar Halo franchise, the open-world connected first person shooter title Destiny launched on the latest and last-gen video game consoles a week ago. The game sold-out almost immediately after its launch and exceeded its $500 million budget in sales, but unfortunately, it failed to put an appreciable smile on the faces of many gamers and critics. So far, many reviews have cropped up from many major video game websites but all of them rate Destiny below par as the game’s offerings are much less than expectations.

After much speculation, Rockstar finally provided PC gamers with a release date for GTA V, the upcoming next-gen overhaul of a blockbuster last-gen open world action-adventure video game. But as crashing it might sound, it will be only a couple of months after the publisher pushes out the remastered version of the game for the latest PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles that PC gamers will be able to enjoy it ultimately. The delay of GTA V PC version has sparked a lot of discussions, and Rockstar has now issued an explanation as to why the delay is in the best favor of PC gamers.

Rockstar recently revealed some new details about the next-gen version of its record-breaking GTA V title, including new trailer, screenshots and release date of the game. It was announced that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users will only have to wait two more months before the game launches on November 18. However, PC gamers will have to wait even more as they won’t be able to play the game before January 27, 2015. Of course, now that is not something that PC gamers were expecting, so players are pretty pissed, however, Rockstar has offered some explanation on the topic.

Cramping malicious software is something that every PC gamer might have come across once during the course of fooling around in video games, but encountering such a malware that wipes everything clean and leaves you with an empty online wallet is nothing less than nightmare. Unfortunately, a similar, yet unusual kind of malware is being advertised via the chat feature of an immensely popular video game live-streaming website called Twitch. The malware first tricks its target and then logs into the Steam account of the target and wipes everything including the linked wallet, and any valuable items.Steam OS First True Gaming OS

Internet is sometimes a very horrible place, especially for those who conform to acquire several valuable items in a linked online account, and then get tricked into giving that account away. Currently, something similar is going on at the chat forums managed by Twitch, which is an immensely popular live-streaming destination for players. Gamers are being targeted by a cruel malicious software that gets into accounts on Steam, which is a digital video game content distribution and multiplayer social networking platform developed by Valve Corporation, and spends their money without authorization.

Looking at the already announced upcoming video games for the latest consoles, it seems like reviving last-gen titles and remastering them with improved visuals for the latest consoles has become sort of a trend, it is like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players are left with no option but to reluctantly pay for a new disc of some game that they have already went through completely. However, when it comes to the next-gen overhaul of Rockstar’s record-breaking GTA V, the case is not all the same. The game is so immersive and overwhelming on the last-gen consoles that its remastered version was more of a public demand than the proprietor’s decision.

Rockstar appears to have been anticipating the build logs, and maybe even the game, leaking out, because they have added a cute little preamble requesting PC Users to not get their hands on the build.  They were right about the leak but were slightly off on the time frame; because leak it did, after 2 years.

The wait is finally over as Destiny, one of this year’s most anticipated blockbuster games, is out today for everyone, and apparently an enormous horde of eager fans is already setting things up to enjoy this master piece by the multi-billion dollar Halo franchise creator called Bungie. Taking from its reveal to this point, the developer has released a lot of in-game content and details about the game, but it is always more amusing to see the final product before starting off with it. Below are tons of new ultra HD Destiny Screenshots from final retail version of the game.

After Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, Destiny is apparently the most talked about and boasted game of this year. Developed with a budget far bigger than even the most magnificent of blockbuster films, Bungie’s ambitious master piece is claimed to be everything that a role-playing first-person shooter video game set in an open world connected environment should be, and the developer believes that franchise will remain fresh and lively for as long as a decade. But it is yet to see that how far will Destiny itself push the limits of impressiveness for its fans.

[Op-Ed] The industry has evolved over the years to the point where getting reviews out the second the NDA lifts, or the product launches, is not only common place but required by publications. While this practice is all well and good for hardware, gadgets and even games with single player focus, it shouldn’t be applicable to online games. Bungie is now actively trying to discourage this norm via PR. However, even though I agree with the sentiments the developer has unwittingly created a Prisoners Dilemma of sorts.Bungie - Destiny Day One Review Featured

The Prisoners Dilemma – To Publish Destiny Review on Day One or Not

Calling this interesting development a Prisoner’s Dilemma might be an over simplification or an over complication depending on your viewpoint, but one that stands to logic. Before I delve further into this opinion editorial, let me first elaborate a little on what a Prisoner’s Dilemma is. This particular situation is a subset of the wider ‘Game Theory’ (this has very little to do with games) and one of the more rampant corporate scenarios, usually between two rival companies. It goes like this, say there are two prisoners who got caught without evidence. Prisoner 1 is offered 2 options. He can either stay quiet and go to jail for 4 or he can snitch on his partner and get only 1 year of jail time. Prisoner 2 is offered the same deal. The possible combinations of what can happen are as follows: 1) if both Prisoner’s stay quiet they will get 4 years each. 2) If one of them snitches on the other while the other remains quiet, the snitch will get 1 years while his partner 7 years. 3) If both of them snitch, both of them will get 7 years.

Sony’s latest PlayStation 4 video game console was launched back in November 2013, and soon it will be one year old, but thankfully during all this time, there have been no far-reaching reports regarding any heating issues blotting the console. However, it looks like the PlayStation 4 Intercooler, which is one of the very few useful PlayStation 4 third-party accessories available in stores right now, is still very beneficial for your console as a cheap and reliable cooling solution that distributes heat away from the system.

Nyko’s PlayStation 4 Intercooler Eliminates Heating Issues and Allows Better Air Circulation in Multi-Device Environment

Sony surely scored a huge point by creating an eighth-gen video game console that is considerably compact as well as alluring compared to its counterpart, and despite that fact that the power source of the console is built-in as well, it is good to know that it does not suffer with any major heating problems, as none have been reported on a large-scale. However Nyko Technologies, which is a US-based third-party accessories manufacturer, still felt the need for the PlayStation 4 Intercooler, a cooling solution for Sony’s latest console.

Chris Arbogast, Nyko’s marketing director, sent a press release to Gameidealist explaining why the PlayStation 4 Intercooler is beneficial for the latest console. According to him, the PlayStation 4 Intercooler serves as a cheap and reliable cooling solution that donates heat away from the system and provides better circulation even if the system is placed close to other digital devices. Here is why Chris thinks Nyko’s intercooler for Sony’s latest console is important and useful:

Bungie’s upcoming blockbuster online open world first-person video game title, known as Destiny, is only about a couple of days away from its launch, and everyone is eager enough to check their pre-order statuses over and over just to make sure they are getting the game as soon as it launches this Tuesday. Destiny is coming to PlayStation as well as Xbox, but thanks to Sony’s exclusivity deal with Activision, the game is more applauded on PlayStation consoles compared to Xbox. Shared below is a Reddit survey that shows that gamers won’t upgrade to new-gen consoles just to play Destiny, but majority of the fans will play the game on Sony’s PlayStation 4.

The universe of Destiny is said to be “alive,” this means that the in-game events that occur at different stages are not necessarily controlled or planned by the developer.
