    We were given our first look at Destiny 2: Lightfall back in August. Today, Bungie decided to share a bit more about a few aspects of that new expansion, but not too much. Today's focus is on Neomuna, a metropolis on Neptune, filled with big ol' skyscrapers and plenty of neon lights.

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
