This Week In Games: It Is Your Destiny

Oh boy. It's Destiny week. Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Who else dares compete? Who else dares go toe-to-toe with Bungie's latest juggernaut. No-one really, asides from the usual suspects on Steam and some cool DLC. Wise move other video games!

Destiny (360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4)

What is it? Oh God. It's happening. Should you care? Hold me. (Yes, I think this will be a good game).

Fable Anniversary (PC)

What is it? It's Fable in full HD with all the trimmings. Should you care? Meh. I don't care. You might be nostalgic for that game, I can't muster it.

inFamous: First Light (PS4)

What is it? It's the DLC for inFamous ya dingus. Based on a completely different character. Should you care? I made the mistake of writing off The Last of Us DLC, maybe I shouldn't make the same mistake twice.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution Rivals Edition (360/PS3)

What is it? Man this Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series is really still going isn't it? How many subtitles can one game have? Should you care? A general rule for me: the longer the title, the less interested I am. This goes for any game based on an anime ever.

NHL 15 (360/PS3/Xbox One/PS4)

What is it? It's the annual update to the hockey game that hockey fans play. Should you care? Are you a hockey fan? Or one of those people that plays all sports games regardless of the sport? THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU!

planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ (PC)

What is it? A 'legendary' Japanese visual novel, available for the first time in English on Steam. Should you care? I don't care. Seems incredibly niche, but whatever floats your boat.

Velocibox (PC)

What is it? This game is all about sheer speed and the sensation of speed. It looks cool. Apparently it's difficult. Extremely difficult. In a good way. Should you care? This is exactly the kind of game I could fall in love with. Reflex, twitch based manoeuvring. Insane speed. Leaderboards. Yep. This looks cool in my book.

Are you buying Destiny this week or — gasp — other games? Let us know in the comments below.


    It is my density...

      I watched those on the weekend :-)

      That's... not even really interesting... BTTF is just something you have to share, though.

      More codes to redeem for those interested on the Bungie website in addition to the 17 that have been floating around for ages:
      CODE 18: 7F9-767-F74 (Emblem: Sign of the Finite)
      CODE 19: FJ9-LAM-67F (Emblem: Binding Focus)

        I probably won't even touch them in-game but the completionist in me says thanks. =P

    You wrote off The Last Of Us DLC? Hmmm.

      I am not usually a fan of DLC in general. Can't think of many I've bothered with.

        You should play BioShock infinite DLC. Burial at the sea. Such a good story wrap up.

        I can think of one you should :)

        lol you might not like Destiny much then as there will be much DLC :P

      what DLC is this?

        The Left Behind story DLC. Significant gameplay changes and provides solid backstory for Ellie.
        It's awesome.

          isn't that old? sorry I thought you meant new DLC, I just started left behind last night actually, its taking a while to get any action.

          EDIT: sorry didnt read article properly, carry on.

    Preloaded and ready to go with Destiny. Roll on tomorrow!

    Tuesday I stop being a part time Bee keeper and failing uni student and become legend.


      Coldbin I'm proud of you! I was at the end of my uni course before I realised I was failing.

    I found the Destiny beta quite frustrating, like, there's this wizard that appears half an hour in and they never go into his back-story, more specifically where he came from?

    Ladies and gentlemen, prepare your butts for the Destiny hype backlash on the interwebs.

    I look forward to the Networks crumbling as everyone tries to play Destiny tomorrow.

    Danganronpa 2 : Goodbye Despair is out this week for those waiting for the physical version... picking that up on Thursday, can't wait!

    Picking up inFamous : First Light also...

      I've been told that I can pick up Danganronpa 2 today at EB Games, wicked!

        They got it in early! :) I'm playing of right now, love it so far.

    Oh, just another mouth breather, couch cretin title this week you say? Game over. :)

    Not feeling the Destiny hype, honestly. :\

      Same here. I grabbed Metro Redux last week for a virgin play I've got Madden 15 to chew through.

      My gaming needs are ok right now. Destiny looks ok, but I'll wait to see if its playable in 6 months time when the numbers dwindle significantly.

      I'm not either but after playing the Beta I do like the game enough to make it a day one purchase.

      @ferret I'd recommend going with it now rather than waiting. Playing today with populated servers it should be woth the money. Even if it doesn't fizzle long term you're probably going to get a lesser experience going in even three months after launch when everything is decided. Today I can pick and choose what I do and how I play without having to bow to all that MMO "rogues are OP this week so it's impossible for hunters to get a group" crap.

    I am so glad I'm not the only one who doesn't care much for Fable. I just don't see the appeal, and after playing Fable 3 with a friend... Ugh.

    Argh. I really wanted another month with Diablo III before Destiny. Enough spare time for a PC run of Fable Anniversary would have been sweet too.
