When Destiny first shipped it didn't have much of a story to speak of. Years later, that's definitely changed. There's still plenty of ridiculous jargon, but also characters, conflicts and histories Bungie has spent nearly a decade diligently cultivating. With Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, it's all coming to fruition,…

Elden Ring is one of the toughest and best RPGs on PC, and it has a range of amazing boss battles that rank as some of the most challenging encounters in gaming - so when a player comes along and beats arguably the most infamous with a silly, non-traditional controller, it makes us all look bad. Now, here's a streamer beating Godrick the Grafted by caressing a bunch of bananas.
Streamer and modder Louis 'Super Louis 64' Hamilton has made a name for himself by creating various fantastical (and farcical) controllers and then humiliating everyone by beating really tough games with them. He beat Sekiro with the Donkey Kong bongos and has already taken down Elden Ring's Bloodhound Knight Darriwil using a Ring Fit controller.
Now Super Louis 64 has brought back one of his older tricks: the banana controller, which he previously used to beat the final boss in Dark Souls 3. He's now playing through Elden Ring with this controller (thanks, PC Gamer) and has already taken down the infamous Godrick the Grafted.Best Elden Ring settings, Elden Ring bosses guide, The best Elden Ring classes

10/10 review scores. Game of the year buzz. Nonstop hype from fans. After six years of development, FromSoftware launched Elden Ring to the kind of reception every game developer dreams of. Celebrated for delivering on the studio's promises and more, Elden Ring will generate discussions on open-world RPG game formulas for years to come.
Those discussions may, unfortunately, be plagued by the tired 'difficulty vs accessibility' arguments that have followed the Souls series since the release of Demon's Souls in 2009. It's a notoriously challenging series for newcomers, and the flip side of having such a high barrier to entry is that Souls games have earned a reputation for being inaccessible. Despite both the studio's efforts to address these concerns with Elden Ring, the same criticisms have resurfaced, and with them, backlash from fans against disabled gamers.
Disabled gamers have heard it all before. Predictable excuses, like the difficulty being 'the artist's vision', are followed by suggestions that an easy mode 'spoils the whole experience', and that 'the game isn't for you' if you want such a thing.Best Elden Ring settings, Elden Ring bosses guide, The best Elden Ring classes

Minecraft is undoubtedly one of the best building games on PC, and it's always a wonderful surprise to see what the community has come up with. Like, for example, a Minecraft mob bestiary museum that catalogues all the game's weird and wacky creatures in release order.
There's still a while to go before the release of the Minecraft 1.19 The Wild update, which will introduce several new mobs to the game - such as a creepy new monster called The Warden and a blue fairy with bat wings called Allay.
Before that happens, however, you may want to check out a full catalogue of every single mob added to Minecraft from the original "pre-Classic" 2009 version all the way to update 1.17. Made and displayed on Reddit by user HeeyMonster, the creator's little mob museum consists of a line that neatly displays all the creatures when the player walks down it - starting with just Steve and ending with the likes of Axolotls and goats from the recent Caves & Cliffs update.Minecraft console commands, Minecraft skins, Minecraft mods

In Chaos Theory, the third and arguably the best Splinter Cell game, there's a moment that's always stuck with me. I'm upside-down, shimmying along a pipe on the ceiling to cross over a fire that's burning below, like a very trim spit-roast hog dressed in jet black neoprene. When I'm about halfway along the pipe, a goon pokes his head through the doorway ahead of me; in a two-second storm of sheer instinct, I let go of the pipe with my hands, hanging completely upside-down by my legs, draw my silenced pistol, take a single shot - plip - and the man crumples into a pile before me.
What makes this Mission: Impossible moment memorable is its rarity in a game that's about 90% pure stealth. Sam Fisher has an impressive array of acrobatic skills, like the aforementioned upside-down shot, a split-jump that lets him straddle narrow corridors, and the ability to grab enemies while hanging from the ceiling like a Half-Life barnacle, but they feel special because he so rarely gets to actually use them. Fisher is constantly showing off his gymnast skillset in later Splinter Cell outings.
Chaos Theory came right at the end of a golden era of stealth games; one that more or less began with Thief: The Dark Project in 1998 and probably ended around 2006 with Hitman: Blood Money. Released in 2005, Chaos Theory was the last Splinter Cell game left untouched by the emerging trend towards action and explosions. Its combat is deliberately awkward; you have very little health, you can't run and gun, and you have to press a button to aim before firing.

While Square Enix has recently confirmed that its next big RPG game Forspoken is delayed to October, it has given a new look at some of the game's side missions and features - including the reveal of what looks like ultra-tough Forspoken dungeons hidden deep within its Break storms.
Square Enix is well-known for having some of the best JRPGs on PC, and the publisher's latest hopeful is Forspoken from new developer Luminous Productions - which is made up of many of the Final Fantasy XV team, suggesting why Forspoken is such an action-focused open-world game.
An open-world means there has to be a lot of side activities, and Game Informer has a look at a few of them. Square Enix has previously revealed some gameplay features such as the "Break" storms that sweep in, bringing in higher-level enemies. However, this latest look reveals that there will be challenging dungeon-type experiences hidden within specific Break-infected areas on Forspoken's map, called "Depths of Corruption".

The new Warframe expansion Angels of the Zariman will launch next month, according to developer Digital Extremes, and it'll bring with it a new 'frame too - the graceful Gyre, an electricity-based character, who will bring a bit of ballet to the live-service ninja game.
Warframe is already one of the best multiplayer games on PC, and it's set to become even more expansive with the release of the game's "direct follow-up" to last year's The New War expansion. Digital Extremes has now confirmed in its latest developer live stream that Angels of the Zariman will drop next month, April 2022.
The expansion is set aboard the Zariman Ten Zero ship, which was introduced in New War. It will feature a new main quest, new missions, and a new social hub called the Chrysalith - the first of its type in Warframe, where players can "seamlessly access procedural missions without load screens". There will be numerous NPCs to talk to and trade with, and players can even get their own customisable apartments on the Zariman.Play Warframe for free, Warframe builds, Warframe Duviri Paradox release date
