Hello TAY! Here we are once again mulling over the crazy week we've just had full of turmoil, excitement, and heartbreak that is video games. As E3 has ascended back into the heavens now we're left curled up in our little balls of sorrow since many worthwhile releases are delayed til 2015.

But of course #NotAllGames! There's some GREAT stuff coming aboot. Smash Bros should be fun and I can't wait til Smash Club gets started. I'm sure many a 3DS will be broken in the rage along with some friendships. Alien: Isolation looks like it could cause some people to stay awake at night and I'm really looking forward to it.

Thanks to the partnership that was struck between PlayStation and Bungie I'm now absolutely HYPED for Destiny. The Alpha was fired up at every free moment available to me over the weekend. I created an Awoken Hunter who's throwing knife ability is OP. Since its an RPG/Shooter hybrid I don't feel overwhelmed by those of a better skill. I actually found it to be very addicting especially in the Crucible Mode which is their version of PvP. The knives and grenades have a cooldown time so you're not just spamming R3 at every chance you get.

I could go on and on about Destiny but instead I'll ask all of you: What's YOUR destiny? What do you feel is your purpose here on Earth? Maybe you're here to be a butcher or a baker or a candlestick maker. Or perhaps you're here to watch online communities grow and have a dissenting opinion when things don't go in a matter which you envisioned. As they say, the sky is the limit!
