Bet You Haven't Found This Totally Obscure Location in Destiny

Arbiter go there now

Bungie promised that Destiny would come alive once you reached its level cap, as has seemingly been evidenced by the number of players scouting for legendary engrams at a recently uncovered farming hot spot.

Dark Souls-Esque Action RPG Lords of the Fallen Will Look Best on PS4

King of the consoles

Many of the PlayStation 4’s advantages over next-gen competitor the Xbox One have become common knowledge of late, but it’s worth reiterating that the system is still playing host to the best versions of most multiformat games.

A set forged in the stars

With the release of Destiny now long gone, you’ve probably already purchased a vanilla version of the first-person shooter. As such, you may be curious what the top-tier special edition looks like.

Would You Play Destiny in Third-Person?

Out-of-body experience

There's absolutely no doubt that Destiny is an incredibly smooth and polished first-person shooter: its controls are silky, its aiming is snappy and fast, and its gunplay in general is immensely satisfying.

Killzone Creator Guerrilla Games Finds a New Horizon in Fascinating PS4 Exclusive

Jurassic park

There’s no doubt that the Killzone franchise has divided gamers, but Guerrilla Games has never disappointed from a technical perspective.

Sammy Barker is struggling to turn back time
