Can you believe that Naughty Dog has been around for 30 years now? The popular studio may now be known as the Sony-owned developer in charge of games like Uncharted and The Last of Us, but their history stretched back decades before those days.

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."
