- Bungie welcomes gamers to Destiny on July 17
Bungie was founded in 1991 and right from the gate it delivered Halo. This single game that changed a genre and helped put Xbox on the map. Bungie always combines latest technology with uncompromising art, captivating storytelling, and deep gameplay. Over the past twenty years, Bungie created a bunch of fun games, including the Halo Franchise, the Marathon Trilogy, and the first two Myth games. Now the employee-owned independent outfit is preparing to unleash their newest creation, Destiny.
“As we prepare to launch our first Beta on multiple console platforms around the world, we are excited and eager to open the flood gates. We already love to play Destiny, and with your help we can be ready for our launch in September.” ~Harold Ryayoun, Bungie’s president
In Destiny you play as Guardians of the last city on Earth. You explore the ancient ruins of our solar system from the red dunes of Mars to the lush jungles of Venus. You have incredible power that will help gamers battle humanity’s enemies. Your goal is to reclaim all that was lost during the collapse of mankind’s Golden Age. Destiny unfolds through great storytelling and grand adventures. Bungie has always done a great job of immersing players in a universe. They are the same folks that created the story rich and action packed Halo but this time think more Action-RPG like Mass Effect. The anticipation for this game is as high as a Gran Theft Auto game. Bungie has finally confirmed the date for the Destiny Beta. The Destiny Beta will give gamers a small taste of the full game. If pre-order Destiny at a retailer, I got good news for you. You are guaranteed access into the Beta.

I personally think it does not matter if you were born here or not. Once you drink that American Kool-Aid so to speak, you are for all intents and purposes an American. Technically speaking the only real Americans are Native Americans. Our founding fathers were British but I digress. The faces of America are many different shades and hues.

- E3 Day 1: Recap in Official Trailers
E3 is like the CES of the game world. Every year video game companies come together to show off their new products. Last year was all about the new hardware. This year it is about the games. Microsoft and Sony both came out swinging with games on top of games. There was few hardware news but why should there be? We have the boxes now its about what to do with them.
That said, it was disappointing that Microsoft had nothing to say about the cost drop for the Xbox One. Also the only way they could get the price cut was to remove the Kinect from the system. At least Sony said they will have a new white PS4 soon. Any who, back to the games. Here is a recap of some of the best new games at day 1 of this years E3.

- The Guinness Book of World Records video game collection is up for sale
I had a one point a very big comic book collection but some how through the process of growing I lost track of their location. Michael Thomasson however did a better job of keeping track of his collection. He now has a massive video game collection. His collection is so massive in fact it has earned him the Guinness Book World Records 2014 Gamer’s Edition for having the largest video game collection in the world.
Michael Thomasson became game collector at the early age of 12. It all started with a game as a Christmas gift. The game he got was for the Colecovision. This is not the first time that Thomasson old off his collection. He once sold his collection to buy a Sega Genesis and again to help pay for his wedding. Guys should bring this up next time your girl tells you to stop playing video games.
Michael Thomasson now has over 11,000 games. The Guinness folks has already stopped by to verify that he in fact has more games than everyone on earth. They also say his collection is worth between $700,000 and $800,000. Michael Thomasson said that he only spends $3,000 a year. Why is he selling all his games? He said that as an adult family man he just does not have the time to keep up with it.
