Bungie

Destiny 2 CE Includes Swag you Might Actually Use

This week Bungie officially lift the lid on the release of Destiny 2. It started with a logo, then continued with a cute little video showing off Cayde in the smoking ruination of The Last City, and today concluded with the full reveal/announcement of the forthcoming sequel release to the epic grind fest.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

A collection of four Halo games should have been a cause for much rejoicing for Xbox fans. However, somewhere down the development road the team behind the game collection forgot what made Halo successful the first time around: Multiplayer. Without a working multiplayer at launch (or indeed for a week afterwards) this game feels half-complete.

The Pros: 

+Halo 2's visual upgrade is nothing short of stunning.
+Having the ability to go through all 4 main Halo games again is awesome.
+The menu navigation and selection is slick and easy to use.

The Cons: 

-The game was released before it was completed.
-Multiplayer is still having issues getting started a week later.
-Playlists should be customizable, instead of just preset.

While we might not hit every single game for review, I'm sure some of you have been wondering where the Halo: Master Chief Collection review has been. It's understandable, especially considering the fact that we've live streamed several hours of the game on our Twitch stream. So here's the down low: We received a review copy of the game about 2 weeks before it came out, however there were issues with the multiplayer/co-op that were going to be addressed in a patch.

Destiny [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Destiny is a really good game that shys just short of true greatness by being a fairly standard feeling FPS game at its core. It has the potential to be a really great game franchise down the road, but the current iteration is held back by a lot of little things that annoy slightly, like taking a lovely family vacation but not being able to ignore the mosquitos. 

The Pros: 

+ Solid mechanics

+ Addictive 'bread-crumb' style gameplay

+ Large, expansive scenes to explore

+ Plenty of varity in game modes and play styles

The Cons: 

- Derivitive feeling story and characters

- Nagging UI/flow issues

- Character fatigue online (not enough customization)

The amount of hype that Destiny has been able to generate, for a new IP, is simply unprecedented.

Some of that is natural; the fans saw something new and exciting, and they flocked to it.

Some of that is manufactured. The amount that was spent on marketing the game was a little beyond ridiculous as well… But it all in all it’s paid off.

Bungie Shows Us Their Destiny

After opting to forgo their almost pre-determined path of being the latest development studio to enter the yearly installment route, Bungie has finally unveiled their new project.  Over three years in the making, Destiny is the latest FPS from the makers of Halo and it could go on to become the next big thing in the world of gaming. Either that or it’ll be this generation’s equivalent to Daikatana.

Music Legend Paul McCartney Is Creating Music For Bungie's Next Game

Perfectly fitting the “who saw this coming?” label, music legend Paul McCartney has revealed that he is currently writing music for the newest game from Bungie. The former front man of The Beetles, lead singer of Wings, and former lover of a crazy one-legged woman has revealed via his Twitter account that he is penning music for Bungie’s next big project.  So is the money drying up for Sir Paul or is he simply bored?

A Bungie Designer Reveals What The Studio's Next Project Is

Having developed one of the biggest video game franchises of all time, Bungie pretty much has free reign to do whatever the hell they want.  No longer directly attached to the Halo franchise (that honor goes to 343 Industries), Bungie was in one of those rare instances where they could go to a company and be given carte blanche to do whatever the hell they wanted to do.  After settling with Activision as a partner (much to the dismay of gamers and the industry as a whole), Bungie has finally revealed the first tidbit on their next project, which in the end could be disappointing f

Bungie's New Game For Activision Is Possibly A MMO FPS [Rumor]

Last year Bungie shocked us all when they announced a partnership with Activision to produce a new IP.  Not only was Bungie teaming up with Activision something that resulted in a combo of exclamation and question marks floating above our heads, but the fact that Bungie signed a ten year contract with Activision proved to be even more baffling.  Bungie didn’t tie themselves exclusively to Activision as they can still continue other projects, but there were still a lot of gamers o

Halo 5 Logo Spotted At A Microsoft Showcase

At a Microsoft presentation given to a Channel 4 Reporter at Microsoft Redmond's Offices concerning the future application of the Microsoft Kinect, a Halo 5 logo was spotted. Seen right next to logos for "Grandma's Room" and Project Gotham Racing, here's the main question about the Halo 5 logo: what happened to Halo 4?

Versus Verdict: Commander Sheppard Wins

After quite along debate between me and another writer, who will remain anonymous, and of course you guys helped us come to a conclusion. It's obviously Commander Sheppard. He is the ultimate soldier unlike Master Chief who was designed for war. Commander Sheppard had to earn his reputation for being the ultimate badass in the entire galaxy.

Versus: Commander Sheppard vs. Master Chief

We here at Shogun Gamer are starting a new feature article that will be released weekly. It's called, Versus. It's kind of like a deadliest warrior for gamers. We give you two characters from the video game universe, put them down in an environment that we think would even the odds and let you, the readers, decide the outcome. Of course you may have trouble deciding when it comes down to the crucial finale. So we'll also put some info up on the characters that we've decided to put face to face in their fight to the death.
