It’s a normal urge as a writer and a reviewer to put out reviews at a very quick pace after a game’s release, and usually it’s an efficient plan. To the ones who have released reviews about Destiny… it was the wrong time to do so.
It seems to be a knee-jerk reaction to demean Destiny’s storyline, the monsters you’ll inevitably face, and the ease of obtaining levels. The fact of the matter is, everything before level 20 is simply a tutorial. To the dedicated players that continue to put in time to their level 20+ characters, the game has really just begun.
But I’ll go ahead and address the usual impressions and flaws every person seems to be focusing on in Destiny. Read the rest of this page »

The PlayStation Network, which was slated to go down for maintenance tomorrow, has apparently been struck with a sudden DDoS attack that has left the entire network unavailable for users. Sony has managed to begin responses to the public as they try to fix the problem, but there is currently no timetable as to when the service will be restored. Fortunately for users, Sony has revealed that no user information has been revealed in this security attack.
An update on the PlayStation Blog states, “Like other major networks around the world, the PlayStation Network and Sony Entertainment Network have been impacted by an attempt to overwhelm our network with artificially high traffic. Although this has impacted your ability to access our network and enjoy our services, no personal information has been accessed.”
Other similar attacks on League, Path of Exile, and Blizzard games have also been reported, but it seems that Sony is the only one having issues.
This page will be updated once more news is released.

On Twitter, I asked all of my deliciously awesome followers (yes, you’re all delicious in a maybe-I’m-a-little-creepy-way) what games they would make HD Remasters of. Read the rest of this page »
