Personally I had a blast playing the Destiny Beta. I agree with some of the Gamespot concerns - most notably the repetition of environment use and that Devil Walker. Saying that, the Level 6 Strike was extremely satisfying in the most part. The combat is pretty special and although there's 3 instead of 4 in that strike team, it still felt like the right amount of players. It was a shame that when we got to the Devil Walker bit, we had to take potshots for about 10 minutes to take it down - although I ended up getting close enough to throw out a grenade and knock some damage off there.

Also love the Ghost Gun ability - activating that thing in the heat of battle felt very empowering, especially when you have those three thermal shots to play with. I also played the Beta on the PS3 (PS4 at work), and appreciated that Bungie did a great job with porting it across from the PS4 - environments still looked impressive and vast. Think the only issues with slowdown happened in the Tower, though might be a network thing.

All in all, I'm pretty much sold on the game. I have yet to get a PS4, though will definitely be picking up the Destiny bundle. It feels a lot like a modern PSO - even sounds a bit like it in the Tower too - oh, the music is incredible. Marty has left a strong legacy after been unceremoniously booted out of Bungie. I was super-obsessed with PSO on the Dreamcast and I'm getting the same kind of vibe with Destiny.

Glad I caught the Moon too :D

Getting many copies of this. Vigilante Edition for the cap and facemask will provide hilarious studio-based photo opportunities. Be sure to use the thing I worked on in the game! I can't mention what yet, but I will eventually.

Fucking UKIP. Slimy lizard racists. That is all.

Some nice logos knocking about here. Being a design whore, I love the subway stuff though you should use this excellent link for refining the idea and maybe getting some inspiration for alternate designs - http://thestandardsmanual.com/

Couple of weeks ago I was asking about why this wasn't a thing and now it is! You've made an old man with old ears and old bones very happy.

Quite enjoyed it - I think a majority of the important games got a nod, although the Number 1 spot seemed to be more of a trolling than anything. Plus that Jon Snow interview above kind of reveals the surprise. Some excellent things of note -

  • Jeff Minter's jumper.
  • Televised Space Invaders tournament.
  • Gary Whitta's bizarre accent.
  • Fat Rab not so fat any more.
  • ZX Spectrum vs Commodore 64 (Interesting that there was no mention of Amstrad - the third 8 bit)
  • An amusing masturbation joke about the Wii.

Also interested and a little saddened to see zero female game devs interviewed - a lot of female game journos though. Maybe that's the way of the industry, though it shouldn't be. Glad Parappa got a shout too. Also glad that shows like this are being shown on terrestrial television.

Show's up on the YouTubes although I think it's also hitting torrent sites too, so should be easy enough for everyone globally to check it out. It's definitely recommended viewing.

Is there a list of emoticons which already exist? Kind of envious at seeing images of the GB crew appear magically next to text of others.
