We've seen a lot of footage of the futuristic Earth in Destiny, and in the last trailer we got a good look at Mars. Now we're headed towards the other side of the solar system to check out Venus. In Destiny, it's said that "Venus was once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost." Are you excited to explore the galaxy in Destiny? Check out the gameplay after the jump.

Destiny is less than a month away from launching now, and the hype is really building up. Over 4.6 million people played the Destiny beta, and the game has become the most pre-ordered new IP in GameStop history. Most of Destiny will take place on a futuristic, apocalyptic Earth, but players will also be able to travel to the Red Planet. You can check out footage of Mars in a new trailer by hitting the jump!

Final Fantasy XIV had a rough launch, but a reboot in the form of A Realm Reborn changed so much that it's practically a new game, and it's been much more successful the second time around. Currently that success is bound to PC and PlayStation platforms, but it's not for lack of trying by Square Enix. Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida would love to have the game on Xbox One (and possibly Xbox 360), but he has one unbending rule that Microsoft will not follow: the game must allow for cross-platform play. As the game runs on a Square Enix server, the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC versions can all play together, and Microsoft would have to agree to allow the Xbox versions to join up with the others as well. At this point, no agreement has been reached to make that happen.

“One myth, countless stories, FINAL FANTASY XIII. The New Tale of the Crystal. Like the Light that shines through the Crystal, the universe shines with multicolored content.”

So reads the online description of Fabula Nova Crystallis, the mythology driving the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. It speaks of the heart of mythology: disjointed and fleeting snippets that can be hard to understand on their own, but together make a beautiful whole. That is precisely what a mythology is: a collection of stories.

Lightning Returns likes it clocks

I run among the busy townspeople as I pass the Clock Tower, but I’m not in Clock Town. I gaze up at what the citizens refer to as a moon, but I’m not in Termina. The on-screen clock counts down to doom, but this isn’t The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, it’s Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and I’m running through Luxerion gazing up at the Ark.

An earlier article published at Zelda Informer heralded Final Fantasy X-2 as the Majora’s Mask equivalent of the franchise. Psdeisgnuk described the piece as “bringing together two much-loved and much-maligned games in [a] way few have realized.” That “way” being as more spiritual counterparts than literal ones.

Whereas Majora’s Mask and Final Fantasy X-2 find similar ground by being sequels that are largely alien to their predecessors, Lightning Returns strikes much more direct and literal parallels with the 2000 Legend of Zelda title, as popular opinion is apt to point out.

Since the first game debuted, Assassin's Creed has grown immensely in popularity, and developer Ubisoft has greatly expanded its production of the adventuresome franchise. With Ubisoft increasing their development staff and focusing hard on the Assassin's Creed franchise, it quickly became an annual release, much like Call of Duty or Madden. The rate of release has increased again recently, and Ubisoft is now making two Assassin's Creed titles every year. Some fans are displeased with this change, and fear that the series is growing stale with an overabundance of games launching too quickly together. Ubisoft disagrees, calling these fans a "vocal minority" and explaining why the format of two games a year works. Hit the jump to catch the explanation!

We've just got wind that the daring duck Donald will be joining the roster for Disney Infinity 2.0. In his trailer, his cute animated form is revealed. Not only is he cute as hell, but his skills and personality are unique assets to his character. The trailer leans towards the silly side, showing off what the duck can do with horses, enemies, and space ships!

Two days ago we saw the surprise reveal of a new game called Life Is Strange from Dontnod Entertainment (Remember Me) and Square Enix. This self-proclaimed "AAA indie game" (the game is very much not independent, but Dontnod aims for an "indie" style) stars childhood friends Max and Chloe teaming up to investigate the mysterious disappearance of their former classmate, Rachel.

Max is the main protagonist, and she soon learns that she has the special ability to rewind time. This factors into the gameplay in a major way, as you can redo sections of the story if you don't like the direction you're heading in. Life Is Strange will be released episodically, with five episodes currently planned. You can check out a gameplay video and some new screenshots by clicking below!

The Evil Within, an upcoming survival-horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, launches in two months, and DLC will soon follow. Publisher Bethesda Softworks announced three DLC packs today, as well as a season pass. In all three of the extras you'll be playing as someone other than main protagonist Sebastian Castellanos. Hit the jump to see what's in store, and how much it will cost you.

The Media Create hardware and software sales numbers for Japan are in, and Yokai Watch 2 continues its reign at number one for the fifth consecutive week. Eight brand new games cracked the top twenty this week, but none of them came close to Yokai Watch 2, which sold another 120,000 units and top 2 million total sales in just a little over a month. The launch of Dragon Quest X: All-In-One Package boosted Wii U sales slightly, but Nintendo's console (and all home consoles, really) continues to struggle in Japan. PlayStation 4 has yet again been outsold by PlayStation 3 this week.
