Today's Special Destiny Mission Took Players To The Moon

Videos: It’s where evil space wizards come from. Somebody should investigate, huh? A too-cool-to-miss event during the Destiny beta had been teased all week by developer Bungie and players finally got to sample it today.

The Best Games Convention I've Been To May Soon Be No More

We’re in San Francisco club called Stud, and there are people in fur suits everywhere. Coloured lights and crashing beats flash like fireworks in a thunderstorm. Everyone is sweaty and drunk, but most of all they’re happy. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you GaymerX, my favourite game convention — and also maybe the last of its kind.
