Destiny 2 game play reveal trailer

I watched the Destiny 2 game play trailer and I pre-ordered the game straight away.

I have never ever pre-ordered a game after watching a trailer.

Seriously.

But I was simply impressed.

Destiny 2 looks to be the game that the original Destiny so desperately wanted to be but took 2 years to be fully realised by Bungie.

Check it out:



The lessons of Destiny 1 have been learned. Bungie has listened. They came right with the last couple of rounds of DLC. Destiny 2 is going to be the real deal.

For the love of Oprah Winfrey, this game better have a compelling campaign!

Can't wait until the Beta!

Speaking of the Beta, if you pre-order the game on Amazon, you can get into the Beta early.

Shane Salerno to write the Gears of War movie script


So how is going to play Marcus and Dom?


Deadline reports:

Universal and Microsoft announced their collaboration on the game in late 2016. At the time, Rod Fergusson, head of Microsoft subsidiary The Coalition that develops new Gears Of War content and the franchise co-creator, said the film would not be based on any particular game but instead be a new story set in the universe. 

That universe is the fictional planet of Sera, where a squad of beefed-up commandos living in a bombed-out postapocalyptic society battle swarms of alien creatures called Locusts.

The first game, developed by Epic and released in 2006, has spawned sequels that have put the game series at north of $1 billion in grosses. It is considered one of the most iconic video game success stories that defined the first generation of HD gaming and is played by more than 45 million gamers worldwide. 

Microsoft acquired the franchise in 2014, when co-creator Fergusson returned to lead The Coalition, the Microsoft development studio focused exclusively on Gears Of War.

Salerno’s current writing credits include the four sequels to Avatar for director James Cameron, which begin shooting in August, as well as writing and producing The Cartel for Ridley Scott to direct at 20th Century Fox, based on the bestselling Don Winslow novel. That film is eyeing a tentative January production start. His other credits include the Michael Bay-directed Armageddon and the Oliver Stone-directed Savages.

One question, if the story is not based on the three games will the movie feature Marcus Fenix or Dominic Santiago? And the rest of the gang?
