The Last of Us rakes it in on PS3, that E3 Destiny walkthrough makes its way online, Team Fortress 2 gets updated with community content and we preview Splinter Cell Blacklist all in today’s BG News Wrap.
Naughty Dog’s latest is an absolutely huge smash of a hit. Selling a whopping 3.4 million plus copies, the game has received an explosive reception from both fans and critics.
|So what’s the royalty check look like on 3.4 million copies?
With the PS3 in its final days and more than likely nothing like the extra-long life that its forebear enjoyed on the way, it sure did go out with a nuclear-sized bang. The Last of Us is actually not just a big hit, but it’s the biggest hit in the history of the PS3 console. Yep Naughty Dog’s little game about the fungal apocalypse is the best selling game ever for the PS3.
Bungie takes gamers on a tour of their Destiny
Bungie’s first multiplatform game since emerging from the Microsoft cloak is a first-person shooter with some very big aspirations… at least I think that’s what it is. Destiny almost feels like a futuristic Skyrim or a more serious Borderlands with its apparently existent ‘loot’ system; something I wan’t even aware the game boasted.
Actually, details on Destiny still aren’t the most, well, detailed and I’m not even entirely sure just how single and/or multiplayer the game is tilted. It is still a ways off in all fairness, so I’m sure we’ll find out some additional tidbits about it at some point soon.
Team Fortress 2 update inbound
Valve’s Team Fortress 2 is just one of those games that never seems to go out of style. Gamers love it and so does its creator, as the team-based shooter constantly is on the receiving end of updates and goodies like new crossovers and hats. Yeah… hats…
Anyway, the latest update for TF2 includes something very cool indeed- a pair of maps of the user-created variety. Called Process and Standin, the maps were built by Ian Cuslidge and, according to Valve, they might not be the last community projects to see the light of day in the game.
I am a Splinter Cell
Well, no I’m not a Splinter Cell, but Sam Fisher most definitely is. The world weary hero of Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell series is back once again in Blacklist and we had the pleasure of getting hands on with the game and previewing Sam’s latest.
Yes, it’s true that Michael Ironside is out as the voice of the title character, but so far the action title is shaping up quite nicely and spies vs mercs is still every bit the blast to play as it once was.
