Let’s get one thing out of the way up front. Hyrule Warriors is not The Legend of Zelda. It has none of the exploration, indefinable magic, or innovation of the series from which this title is spun from. That’s not to say we can't love it though. See, while Hyrule Warriors might be a touch repetitive at times, it draws enough lore from a beloved franchise, and the hordes of enemies you'll be slicing through should keep fans of that particular subgenre more than occupied.

Is this video helping them out?

All three of Mojang's original founders, including Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson, will be leaving the studio after the deal goes through.
To the surprise of many, Destiny feels strangely uninterested in its own story. There's a huge amount of lore hidden away in the Tower and Grimoire, but overall, the game doesn't really spend a whole lot of time explaining things to you. By the end of it, there are way more mysteries than there are answers.
Well that didn't take long did it? It seems that Destiny's "level cap" of 20 can be reached well before the end of the story content. Luckily for those that want to stick with the game though, this isn't the end of your character's progression.

What a bargain! If you're looking for a new console, and to spend around $13,700, you're probably a crazy person (but you're also in luck). A store in Dubai (of course) is now selling Xbox Ones and PS4s with a rose gold case crafted by Italian jeweler Gatti (they assure us he is renowned).
