Complete Destiny Map Video

September 13 2014 by Sean Ayres

Most of you are probably too busy actually playing the game to read this right now, but for those who have taken a break from the amazing universe of Destiny, we have a video of the full map for the game right here. It covers all the planets, including Earth, Mars, Venus, the Moon, and the Reef.

The video comes courtesy of YouTube user DattoDoesDestiny, who managed to play unseen content before the launch.

Check out the video after the jump for the full map reveal!

A post on the official Bandai Namco Tales of Channel leaked that the series' next big entry, Tales of Zestiria, will release in Japan on January 22nd. The post with this information has since been taken down. The post showed off some of the Tales goods that will be available at Tokyo Game Show later this month. The game's official website also revealed two new characters and who voices them.

Hit the jump for information on the characters, battle system, and animation.

A few weeks ago Capcom revealed Resident Evil: Revelations 2, a sequel to the first game, originally made for the 3DS. It was revealed Claire Redfield, one of the most popular characters from the series, would be the main character, and today we have a trailer to prove it! The trailer shows Claire getting kidnapped by an unknown organization, who dumps her in some sort of prison island (a Claire classic). The trailer sure gives off a The Evil Within vibe, at least to me. Not that that is a bad thing. In fact, I believe it's a very good thing. The new enemy type in the game, called The Afflicted, were also probably the enemies shown in the trailer, and I just have to say, they look very healthy.

Hop in to see the trailer!

Editor's note: Bungie has released an official statement urging players and reviewers to keep in mind that Destiny is a revolutionary multiplayer experience, and that early reviews of the game won't properly reflect its true import. With this in mind, I will happily write an editorial or even a new review if time proves this one antiquated or inaccurate. But for the time being, I believe this review is trustworthy and complete.

I never played much Halo. I never played much Call of Duty. The shameful list goes on, but I’ve long felt it’s time to broaden my gaming horizons. And luckily, it turned out that Destiny is just the game for the job. With intrinsically enjoyable gameplay and a well-adjusted learning curve, no new experience has earned my love so quickly as Destiny. (And the bandwagon hype of the most successful franchise launch didn’t hurt, either).

With the release of Destiny coming to us yesterday, the question comes to ask, how does the game stand on its own? What would the game be like if you didn't bring friends into the equation? We've all come close to the idea that these games are inherently social, but what if we remove those aspects? What does that leave us? The experiences are bound to change, and they may very well alter your opinions, and how much it does varies on who you are.

If you are currently living on a university or college campus and wanting to play the recently released Destiny, you may be out of luck. Many people currently at these campuses have reported issues that don't allow them to access the game. Bungie is aware of the issues and sent a tweet early this morning saying that they are working on finding a solution. Head inside to find out more!

We all knew that yesterday's release of Destiny was going to be huge, and it was. The new IP from Bungie raked in a whopping $500 million in sales on release day alone. Destiny held over 11,000 midnight launches in 178 countries. Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, stated, "Since the beginning, we've been confident that our investment and belief in Destiny would pay off." And it certainly has. Find out what else he had to say after the jump!

Xbox One has finally launched in Japan, and the results are less than promising. Microsoft's new console did technically debut as the number one hardware model with just over 25,000 units sold, but combined sales of 3DS and 3DS XL (Media Create tracks them as separate products) beat out Xbox One by about 4,000. A little digging shows that in recorded history of Japanese launch weeks (going back to Dreamcast), no console has sold less in its debut week in Japan. That said, the new system did land three games in the top twenty, although no Xbox One title ranked higher than number seven. Hit the jump for the breakdown!

The details keep pouring in for Capcom's Resident Evil: Revelations 2! Following the reveal of story details, gameplay details, and images two days ago, Capcom has revealed more new information today, including the introduction to the game's story and release and pricing details.

In a surprising turn of events, Capcom has announced that they will be releasing the game episodically at first. Each week a new chapter will be released for digital download, and each chapter will end on a cliffhanger, enticing players to tune in the following week. After the episodic release has ended, the game will be available in its entirety both digitally and in stores. Hit the jump for more details!

Well, it's hardly surprising given the hype leading up to the launch, but Bungie's Destiny is now the United Kingdom's most pre-ordered new IP ever. The online FPS game launched last night at midnight, and some gamers are already diving into the action.

Since it was previewed by Bungie at E3 2013, Destiny was probably the most anticipated game this year. Over 4.6 million players playtested the beta, and Bungie estimated that up to 10 million players would join in when it launched.
