Someone Used 'Destiny' to Recreate 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Scene

Destiny Producer Says the Game Only Gets Better After the End

The very start of Destiny might feel a bit like a standard shooter to many, but according to Executive Producer Patrick O'Kelley, the multiplayer-driven sci-fi shooter becomes an entirely different experience once a player reaches the level cap of 20 and can begin to experience the endgame missions and objectives. "I think what players will find is that the game unfolds and transforms over time," O'Kelley told Xbox Wire .

Why Microsoft is basically stealing Minecraft by buying it for only $2.5 billion

Some might wonder why Microsoft would pay $2.5 billion for a game with low-res graphics and no real plot-line - but the reality is that Minecraft is far more of an open platform for creativity than it is a simple game, and is likely worth much more than $2.5B So the much-rumored acquisition of Minecraft has finally come to pass , with Microsoft buying the game's parent company Mojang for $2.5 billion, and no doubt many people unfamiliar with the game are wondering whether the software giant has lost its collective mind.

Recently, Forbes contributor John Archer raised something of an Internet firestorm by pointing out something that's been common knowledge for a little while now: neither Sony's PS4 nor Microsoft's Xbox One are even close to the most powerful gaming machines on the market. Despite all the hoopla surrounding the term "next-gen," both machines will struggle to keep pace with modern display technology.

Ben Stiller stars in Tropic Thunder

What's It About? Media tycoon Elliot Carver sparks a war between China and the West so he can cover it in his TV, magazines and newspapers - and there's no prizes for guessing who's called in to stop him. Bond's showdown with the sadistic Dr Kaufman is 'delicious', there's a car park chase to die for and a motorbike scene that would have given Evel Knievel nightmares.

With the rise of digital storefronts and all-in-one gaming consoles, there are a few more options to distribute demos than bundling compilation discs with gaming magazines. The modern difference is particularly underlined with Steam's Early Access , where betas and generally-unfinished portions of games can be sold with the promise of eventual full admission to the final experience.

Licence to thrill at Bond exhibition

In Wellington Street, a trilby hat's throw from the Covent Garden Piazza, John Barry's unmistakable James Bond theme tune drifts seductively from the oblong entrance of the London Film Museum. Inside, behind a queue of British, French and Australian families, I'm faced with a split screen of crash-bang- wallop action clips from the 007 movies.
