Three Things 'Destiny' Is Desperately Missing Even With 'Rise of Iron'
Destiny's final year is almost upon us when Rise of Iron launches on September 30th for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. With this final year comes a place where the former Halo developer Bungie could quite easily launch quite a few test items in this upcoming expansion. With Destiny 2 quite possibly already in heavy development, Destiny is getting a decent amount of content to hold us over for a year, much like the expansion Taken King was supposed to do, but in a much bigger way.
Microsoft Is Making Some Big Changes
For the past two years, Lionhead Studios has been developing their latest Fable installment, Fable Legends, with an anticipated Spring release. Well, it seems as though all that development and preparation has officially been shelved. Microsoft released an official statement (read it here) that explains the changes being made to Lionhead Studios and Press Play Studios - both European studios.
Day 3 Video Game Challenge: Time Is Valuable And I Spent So Much On This Game
Let me tell you my story... Many years ago - before marriage... before children... before a full-time career, I played far too many video games and I spent far too much money on those games, but it was my solitary place and I found joy in disappearing into the various worlds that I encountered through many games. Most of my games were RPG's because as you may have read in my Day 2 article, I was an only child. So, being an only child left a decent amount of games out of my collection because I had no-one to co-op with or join online. So I spent my days and nights building into my RPG characters. I played them all: Final Fantasy, Blue Dragon, Fallout, Borderlands, Infinite Undiscovery, Resonance of Fate, Fable, Dragon Age, Dragon Quest, Dark Cloud & Rouge Galaxy (a enitrely overlooked game by the way) and so many more over the years.

How To Build Mercy in the Pathfinder RPG
Angela Ziegler was a renowned scientist, doctor, and pacifist who believed in peace and healing, not in war. While Overwatch was clearly a militaristic organization, Ziegler managed to find a way to work with them, while still getting what she wanted. A guardian angel to some, and an angel of mercy to others, she saved countless lives during her time with the organization, and hasn't let its dissolution stop her from doing what she feels is right.
How Can HBO's Westworld Set The Bar For The Next Generation of RPG Games?
#HBO's newest ambitious epic series has finally arrived in the form of #Westworld. Combining science fiction and western genres into a truly beautiful fusion. HBO has brought to life the classic story written by #MichaelCrichton (Jurassic Park, Timeline, Congo).

The release of Mass Effect: Andromeda has brought BioWare a lot of attention, both positive and negative. Of particular note is the LGBT gaming community's concern surrounding Angaran squad member Jaal as a possible romance for Sara Ryder — and also for Scott.
5 Tips For Playing Better Monks
There is a place between skill and sorcery, where the hard lines of what is and isn't supernatural begin to blur. It is a place beyond the codified laws of magic, where will and spirit become manifest, and allow the impossible to become real.
Expanding The Languages of Thedas: An Interview With The Creator of the Thedas Language Project
Back in February I wrote about The Thedas Language Project, an enormous undertaking by a Dragon Age fan and language creator to expand on the languages of Thedas. The aim of the project was to help in deepening our immersion within the world of Dragon Age through its many languages.
Choose Your Path: Skyrim Adventures and Screenshot Obsessions
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came out on way back when in November 11, 2011. That was a little over four years ago and that makes the phrase "time flies" really hit home. The moment it came out, I knew the game was going to be something special. At the very least I knew it was going to be special to me. It was my first Bethesda game and you always remember your first, right?
You'll Be Amazed By What This Gamer Did With The Slog In 'Fallout 4'
I like to think that I can build a pretty mean looking settlement. However, every time I start thinking that I'm getting competent at it, the Internet goes ahead and shows me what else is possible and then it's back to the drawing board. Case in point, Tumblr user DionysusDreams has taken The Slog, a possible settlement in Fallout 4, and turned it into a thriving community with pretty sturdy looking defenses. When I saw the photos I had to reach out to her and find out what went into making this settlement into a defensible and cozy looking spot.
Fallout 4: Keeping Your Castle Game Strong
Late last year I wrote about my undying love for Spectacle Island and the amount of space and freedom it gave you when it came to building a settlement you can be proud of. I'm still tinkering with how I want it to look but for now I've turned my attention to The Castle, the one place I neglected the most.
Fallout 4: My Obsession With Spectacle Island
When I found out that you could build settlements in Fallout 4, I knew that my days were numbered. I loved the idea and I took to it like water. A lot of my hours of gameplay were dedicated to scouring for resources, building bigger and better settlements, and learning from the last one so that the next settlement would be that much more fun to build and see grow. Out of all of them, my favorite has been the entirely isolated and extremely large playground that is Spectacle Island. But how do you even get there? Well, the fact of the matter is that it's kind of a bitch.
