First truly immersive video game hardware drains your blood when you get shot

Forget Oculus Rift. Of course, it took Canadians to develop a true break-through in video gaming immersion technology: Blood Sport hardware.

You can now play Destiny for free, and save your progress for when you purchase it

Destiny has been a big success so far, at least when it comes to overall sales, but that doesn’t mean Bungie is happy with the number of copies it has sold to date. The company is now letting curious players who aren’t sure whether they should spend $60 on Destiny try the game free of charge. Even more interesting, the free trial includes the option for gamers to save their progress and continue the game from where they left off as soon as they purchase the full game. More →

A year ago this month, we were introduced to the next generation of game consoles: the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Despite the lack of game releases, most of us were just relieved that new consoles had finally hit the market. We’d spent nearly a decade waiting for this moment and it was finally here.
