Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Will Hold a Hefty Hunk of Your PS4's Hard Drive Hostage

You'll need lots of Spacey

The PlayStation 4 may come packed with 500GB of internal storage, but if you're like us, and enjoy indulging in as many games as possible, this probably isn't enough room. Joining a recent cavalcade of absurdly large downloads, Call of Duty's latest annual outing will hold approximately 43GB of your PS4's hard drive space...

Destiny may not be this editor’s favourite game in the world, but your humble host will always accept when something’s awesome – and this is awesome.

Wait, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Is Cross-Buy on PS4 and PS3?

Advanced incentives

As amazing as the initiative is, cross-buy has largely been reserved for smaller digital games thus far, outside of some big first-party forays like PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. Despite this, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – arguably one of the biggest releases this holiday – will be...

Power Is Everything in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4

Thank goodness for that

Considering it’s arguably the biggest video game franchise on the planet, it’s been a bit of a shame to see Call of Duty slip behind its peers – both in terms of stale gameplay, and practically rancid visuals. This new trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, however, aims to prove that power changes everything –...

This Dude Has Played Way More Destiny Than You Have

First in the world to hit Level 30

We figured that it was impossible for any one person to have played more Destiny than our very own Robert Ramsey, who currently has images of his tough looking Titan tattooed to the insides of his eyelids so that they’re never apart. However, it turns out that it’s true, as American gaming god Mark Edward...

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. However, if you’re not a fan of standing in the same place slaughtering helpless enemies over and over, then you’re...

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. But what if the game adopted a third person viewpoint? What if you could see your Guardian at all times, essentially...
