VideoVideo: Games with awful product tie-ins

And liberty and Red Bull for all.

I think it's fair to say that Bungie has had an interesting time of late. First, there came the controversy over the Taken King Collector's Edition making certain content unavailable to existing players without purchasing the game a second time. Then came a cross-promotion with Red Bull, asking players to purchase special promotional cans of the energy drink to access an extra mission in The Taken King expansion.

Video: Watch us play Destiny's exclusive new PS4 Strike from 5pm GMT

If there's one thing we know you all love, it's when we write about Destiny. If there's another, it's when we show preference for one platform over another. Well, have we got a treat for you today - from 5pm Ian Higton and myself will be running through the PS4 exclusive Strike introduced by the recently released Dark Below DLC, The Undying Mind. See you then!

VideoVideo: Watch us take on Destiny's Moon Strike

We're off to see the wizard! Live from 3.30pm BST.

Having been a bit lukewarm over Destiny after a day's play, it's really starting to gets its hooks into me. You know you've got it bad when you're debating whether or not there's room in the suitcase you're packing for the Tokyo Game Show for a PS4 - and whether it's possible to hook one up to a hotel's wi-fi.

The day of reckoning is here - today we learn whether Sony's sometimes flaky PS4 servers can hold up to the global launch of Destiny. There's also the business of actually playing the thing, which is quite exciting in itself. Ian Higton's bagged an early copy of the game and is jumping on now that the servers are live - he'll be streaming for you from 3pm BST for two and a half hours. If you're lucky enough to have got an early copy, message Higton32 and he'll try and get you involved.

Reading into Bungie's mercurial skyboxes.

Destiny is done, or the beta is at least, which is cause for outbreaks of moisture around your eyeballs. Ian Higton has marked its passing with a quick look at the game's majestic skyboxes, and giving you a handy guide as to what clouds there are whirling around the heavens of Old Russia and Venus. So what you're about to see, should you be bothered to click the black box below, is both silly and educational.

Destiny! You can play it in your own home right now! Somewhat surprisingly, the beta has launched with only a few hitches, and it's all running smoothly enough. Will that be the case when we attempt to stream 60 minutes of Strike action from 12pm BST today? There's only one way to find out! Click below for the chance of seeing three men being disconnected from servers. Or, alternatively, to just watch them playing some Destiny.

Something about the modern E3 vintage of which we very much approve is this trend of releasing stuff during the show so that those of us back home have something to play. It makes sense when you think about it: we're all in a heightened state of gaming readiness, so it stands to reason we'll be very attentive to anything that drops into our laps.
