The MMORPG juggernaut that is Destiny has some pretty cool graphics in-game, so it stands to reason that their actual cinematics would look even better. Proving this point is a new trailer for the game's upcoming expansion, known as "The Dark Below", that has been leaked online. To put it simply, it looks epic.

The expansion focuses on a long-forgotten enemy from below the surface of the Moon, and it will bring new story quests and missions, three new competitive multiplayer arenas, and a new Strike and Raid to the game.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's reign atop the Japanese charts has ended. According to the latest Media Create charts, both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare surpassed it, as did Pro Evolution Soccer 2015, knocking it all the way down to fourth.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker debuted at number seven and boosted Wii U sales by about 10,000 units, and Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax produced a similar sales surge for Vita. New Nintendo 3DS was still the top-selling hardware, selling another 47,000 units over the past week. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

Gamnesia Recommends is a ’new’ feature that has been revived from the bygone days of our sister site, Zelda Informer. Each week, one writer takes the podium to talk about a game you might have missed and owe to yourself to have a look at. This week, we’re looking at PAYDAY 2 (PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3).

I’ll say this right now: PAYDAY 2 is not a game for the impatient. I picked up the title following an intense energy drink-fuelled weekend of its predecessor PAYDAY: The Heist, a game that makes a serious effort at excluding newcomers with the complete absence of a tutorial, I was relieved to realize that PAYDAY 2 does what any good sequel does; it elevates the core concepts of the original and takes them to the next level without compromising on quality. In PAYDAY 2 terms, this meant more maps, more features, and more confusion

Destiny's latest update — a major overhaul to help usher in the game's first expansion, The Dark Below — seems to possess an item that suggests the use of swords in the upcoming raid, Crota's End, according to DestinyDB. It's only speculation at this point, but a certain pair of legendary boots — Tireless Striders — contain a buff called "Swordbearer's Touch" that is said to give Guardians "a temporary increase to Agility while carrying the sword of a Hive Swordbearer." Could this "Swordbearer" ability be something similar to what we saw in "The Sword of Crota" mission in the game? I sure hope so, because I think it's safe to say that it was one of the more unique missions in the game.

In December 2013, the Indian Supreme Court restored an old, previously shot down law from 1861 which dictates that homosexual intercourse will be criminalized. Because of this, Electronic Arts has pulled Dragon Age: Inquisition from selling in India. EA states that all orders of the game will be refunded regardless of purchase date or payment method.

After the highly successful The Walking Dead series of interactive adventures, Telltale Games announced a few exciting, new projects. Among these lies Game of Thrones, an episodic adventure revolving around the highly successful book series and TV show of the same name.

Interestingly enough, though, a Twitter account entitled @lifelower posted 8 images from the game that were promptly removed.

The PlayStation Network has grown by leaps and bounds since it first launched in 2006, and the experience is continually expanded with new features. However, nearly a decade (and a full console cycle) later, there's still one seemingly obvious feature that Sony's consoles still lack: you can't change your PlayStation Network account name. It's one of the most frequently requested features, but nothing has been done about it. Sony has finally revealed the reasoning behind this (and it is a feature they'd like to add in the future), but you might be surprised to find out what it is. Hit the jump to check it out.
