destiny_by_ecodigital-d5vuqdxBungie took us on, arguably, one of the greatest science fiction of this generation with the Halo franchise. They proved to the world that a First Person Shooter could have depth and an engaging storyline while also rewarding the player for their skill, dedication and commitment to progression. When they handed over the reins to 343 Studios following Halo Reach, many wondered how you could follow up on such an astounding achievement. Then Destiny was announced; a cross between an FPS, a Massively Multiplayer Online and a Role Playing Game. It was a bold undertaking. How could Bungie successfully incorporate key elements from the three most successful and well-loved gaming genres and make them work? It has been tried before with varying degrees of success and failure. This was going to be a huge gamble on the developer’s part. Read more...

DestinyBungie are synonymous with high quality, well thought out, visually arresting and captivating video games with their most successful franchise to date beginning the Halo series. Halo revolutionised the first person for the Xbox in 2001 when it proved that the format could work on a console as it was previously thought that PC gaming was the perfect stage for such a game. The control system was weighted and organic to play, the mix of open world and linear gameplay was revolutionary, the graphics were stunning and the story was a brand new take on the space opera that caught the imaginations of gamers worldwide. Fast forward to 2007 and Bungie released Halo 3 which seemed to be the final chapter in their trilogy. The adventures of the Master Chief fell to 343 Studios and Bungie left to develop a new IP which they promised would be more evocative than anything gamers had ever seen. Read more...

sw leadOn December 20th, 2011, the world was first introduced to Star Wars:  The Old Republic.  It is a massive multi-player online game (MMO for  short) set within the Star Wars Universe, 1,000 years before the first  film. Prior to the game's release, it was expected that it would replace  World of Warcraft as the dominant force within the MMO market. However,  despite being hugely popular at the point of its release and having a  wealth of positive reviews by fans and critics alike, the game never  quite lived up to its expectations. Prior to its release, it was believed that Star Wars: The Old Republic  had cost Bioware (owned by EA) over $150 million to produce. The  stockmarket remained optimistic about EA's shareprice as, at the time,  it was expected that the game would launch with over 3 million paying  subscribers (roughly $30 million per month). This, when combined with  EA's continuing dominance with sports related games and their newly  revived Battlefield franchise, resulted in a bullish outlook of the  stock.   Read more...

turtlesT.U.R.T.L.E. Power It’s Back to School Week at eXpertComics and there’s one particular favourite memory I have from the Good Ol’ Days (yeah, they’re pretty far back now!) – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! I’ve mentioned them in many a column previously – as well as a love for all things Eighties & Animated – and one of the things that stands out was rushing to LaserQuest on a Saturday morning to hammer the joystick on the TMNT Arcade Game that was released in 1989. This was one of my first experiences of co-operative play (I say co-operative; it was once everyone had realised that because I was the first there, I got to play as Raphael!) and the game, as a whole, was pretty damn perfect. With a rebooted Turtles cartoon for 2013, it was only a matter of time before the issue of a video game was addressed once again... Read more...

destiny-bungie-3The first big game that will usher in the Next Gen of video games is Destiny, developed by Bungie (the original developers of the Halo franchise) an Activision. Destiny will blend RPG and First-Person Shooter genres like never before and in a revolutionary twist, the Destiny in-game universe will always be "alive"! Meaning the game will change and your character will be existing even when you are not playing it. When you just can't handle not knowing what's going on with your character, you will be able to check in on your game via mobile device apps. Giving us yet another reason to check our phones, right? I've never heard of anything like this before...can you imagine when we were kids if Link or Mario (or...Crash Bandicoot or whatever for the younger readers) were still saving princesses and storming castles even when we were not playing? We never would have imagined it being possible! Welcome to the future, I guess. Read more...

He's Michaelangelo, the orange bandana'd member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and he's the first of the Turtles featured in a trailer for Out Of The Shadows, the upcoming new video game that aims to return the 80's fan favorite franchise to gaming greatness! You will be able to harness Mikey's nunchucking skills to deal justice to the menacing Foot Clan, and don't be surprised if you hear his trademark battle cry, "cowabunga!" along the way! Read more...

pg01Growing up in the 80's and 90's, one of the biggest franchises was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and while I loved the cartoon, movies, toys, comics and even bedsheets (yes, I had the bedsheets), the market that The Turtles dominated more than any other major franchise was probably video games. The Heroes on a Half-shell have such a rich video game history, especially on the original Nintendo console. From that very first console game (I never was able to get past that darn swimming level), the world of TMNT just always seemed fit for video games. Only the last few years, there haven't been any great Turtles games to carry the tradition. Read more...
