Over the past few years, video game livestreaming has grown immensely from a niche hobby to a full-blown profession. With sites like Twitch bringing in millions upon millions of visitors, it's no surprise that companies like Sony and Microsoft are integrating their services into the console itself. However, this has raised many questions about the validity of linear, predictable games in a world where you can experience them from any device for free via streaming and "Let's Plays".

Far Cry 4 creative director Alex Hutchinson has weighed in on the issue, and you can find what he has to say after the jump!

Earlier this month, we reported that Sony was holding a PlayStation event in Las Vegas this December. Dubbed the PlayStation Experience, the convention promises to feature "over 400,000 square feet of PlayStation games, panels, contests, signings, giveaways, collectible memorabilia, and much more." Sony recently announced that tickets to this massive, two-day event will go on sale starting tomorrow, October 24, here. Also, when it comes time for the convention, you'll want to get there early as the opening keynote address is only for the first 5,500 attendees! Until that time, Sony has provided a trailer for the gathering which you can find inside!

With the new generation of gaming consoles, a graphical standard for framerate and resolution has yet to be set. While some developers ardently vouch for fluidity over anything else, many maintain that graphical fidelity reigns supreme. With Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Naughty Dog has planted its foot firmly with the third option — why not have both at once?

Even though it has jaw-dropping visuals as showcased in this real-time trailer, A Thief's End is still going to play in 60 FPS at 1080p when it releases next year. Not only that, but Naughty Dog went on to say that (as showcased by The Last Of Us Remastered) they are aiming for this to be the standard in all of their PlayStation 4 releases.

Activision has raised the stakes for its upcoming flagship title Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The company has released a 4-minute trailer titled “A New Era of Multiplayer”. The trailer consists of gameplay footage showing off the new movement system, weapons and more, mixed together with commentary from various community members talking about their experience with Advanced Warfare.

Assassin's Creed Rogue is a new installment of the franchise that will take place during the Seven Years' War. It follows the path of Patrick Cormac, an Assassin-turned-Templar, as he sets out to wreak havoc on his former brothers. Recently, some new footage has surfaced that showcases some information about the open world side missions. It goes over some very useful details and is worth the watch for those of you looking to buy the game.

The Vault of Glass is without a doubt the toughest mode in Destiny to date — it requires six high level players to work together in near perfect synchronization in order to progress through a series of increasingly difficult challenges. And that's just the standard version we're talking about. Add in the "Hard Mode" modifier and players will be lucky to make it halfway through the Vault of Glass unless the majority of their fireteam is leveled up to 30. 

Yet, that didn't deter one player from soloing the Templar on hard mode. Make the jump to see YouTube user Venom Nommy take down one of Destiny's most arduous bosses completely alone. 

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, and it's a good week to be Nintendo! Like last week, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and New Nintendo 3DS continue to top the charts, and nothing else is even close. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sold another 327,000 units, and New Nintendo 3DS sold just shy of 90,000 combined units (between the regular and LL models) in its second week, bringing its two week sales total to over 324,000. Elsewhere numbers were slightly down across the board, except for Vita which got a small boost from Chaos Rings III: Prequel Trilogy debuting at number four. Click below for the full breakdown!

We're back with another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every Monday we pit two video games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes! Rayman Origins, as the name suggests, returned the series to its origins with classic 2D platforming. Sonic Generations blended 2D and 3D action together catering to both classic and modern Sonic fans. Which of these 2011 series refreshes do you like more? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join the debate!

So, you know how launch trailers usually come out at the time of a game's actual release date? Yeah, well Activision apparently isn't having any of that, as the launch day trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been released two weeks ahead the game's Nov. 4 launch date.

As one might expect, the trailer is packed full of military grade weapons, Kevin Spacey, and enough testosterone to make a Jean Claude Van Damme film feel like child's play. Oh, and Double XP. Never forget Double XP.

Bungie's latest weekly update outlines a variety of changes being made to Destiny this coming week, with a specific focus on Atheon, The Vault of Glass' final boss, and another update for the coveted Vex Mythoclast — a weapon only earned by completing Destiny's raid on hard mode.

Recently, videos have popped up on YouTube in which players demonstrate how to force Atheon to walk off the edge of the map (an exploit that Bungie isn't happy about). Thus, the developer will be adding in "baby bumpers" to prevent this tactic in the future, also noting that "Knocking a boss off a ledge is a bug. We will seek to address bugs like these as quickly as possible."
