"Destiny" has been one of the worst-kept secrets in the game industry, what with the Bungie/Activision contract leaking amidst the "Call of Duty" court case last May, the story/art leak in November, and Bungie itself even teased the game deep inside of "Halo 3: ODST". But those were all just small pieces of the puzzle, and now we’ve finally been able to sit down with the studio and officially take a look at the game.

Well, at least we’ve seen pieces of the game. It’s a bit like Leonardo da Vinci showing you a palette, some paints, a brush, and a canvas, and then saying, “Here’s what I’ll be using to paint the Mona Lisa.” Because this was a first look at their new creation, it was very top-level, explaining the story, and blasting us with a lot of concept art.  There were some brief glimpses of in-game footage, but not nearly enough to satisfy us. After all, we are gamers, and every time we see a new game teased, our trigger fingers immediately start itching as we want to try it out.

But you probably want to know what we found out. So here’s a handy guide to what Destiny is all about…. so far.

Just in time for next week's Toy Fair, the biggest kids gaming and toy IP to hit the market gears up to launch a new game this fall... with a little twist. The trailer above (matched perfectly with Fatboy Slims' Weapon of Choice) shows off a whole new feature for the Skaylanders toys- swapabilty. By changing out the top and bottom halves of the new toys, you can create all new characters with the powers of both. It's a neat way to bring a little more interactivity to the line along with a more varied gameplay decisions.

An anonymous source speaking with Kotaku called Vicarious Visions’ development of Guitar Hero 7 “a disaster.”

“They all had big ambitions,” the source said of the development team, noting that development started strong with a demo that introduced new locations and dynamic new camera techniques that moved along with each song. “I didn’t even like the song, but the demo gave me goosebumps,” the source continued.

Eventually, though, the team’s ideas outpaced the time and money needed to implement them: the team wanted to create a new guitar peripheral with more buttons and strum bars, but the prototypes proved too expensive to mass produce. “The strings were unresponsive and loose, and the guitars cost a fortune to make,” Kotaku’s source said. “No one could figure out a way to make it so your average Joe could buy one.”

But rather than hiding behind sales figures and metacritic scores, they've come right out and said "We've heard you, and we're going to make the next game better." Read More...
