Destiny is finally out!
There’s been no question that Bungie’s upcoming “Destiny” is, ahem, destined to be the marquee title of the new console generation. But the game has turned out to be a gold mine even bigger than publisher Activision could have dreamed.
Bungie has reportedly put $500, 000, 000 million dollars into the making of this game, placing it as the most expensive game to make so far. However with that in mind Destiny plans to run its games story with ten years worth of content and easily allowing players to switch between consoles and even PC. With droves of hungry gamers lining up all over Edmonton for a midnight release, it should come as no surprise that gamers on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and the Xbox One have had their consoles spinning the games disk since launch. we could very well be seeing a new juggernaut in the gaming

In second place was not so old but not so new Evol who played his bison all the way to he clashed with the king.

Who will rise above and usurp the current past King of AE? Will Evol run it back? Find out this wednesday as 2 Perfect streams Edmontons First ranbat on Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Azure Striker Gunvolt : The first trailer
This game oozes mechanical prowess and insane style. It's 2D platforming run-and-gun where you dash about, finding optimal ways through screens filled with lovingly crafted hazards. The twist here is Gunvolt's weapon: he shoots enemies and then activates his powers to zap anything he previously shot, dealing damage and building a combo counter. Screen-clearing "supers" seem to be the reward for fighting well, though I'm not entirely sure how they're earned or even if they're a good fit in this type of game.
Really appreciating that 3DS I was initially skeptical about. I'll be watching Azure Striker Gunvolt's development closely.
