The Awesome Weapons of Destiny
The world of Destiny is a dangerous one, full of numerous races and species that want you super-dead. Luckily, it’s also full of badass guns that allow you to shoot up every alien that picks a fight. Check out the weapon classes and the awesome guns that you can use in Destiny. The primary weapons are going to be your bread and butter for Destiny. They contain the classics: Auto rifles, hand cannons, pulse rifles, and scout rifles. You’ll also probably be switching this weapon out the most, as you figure out which ones suit your style and earn more powerful versions. Our Favorites: Duke Mk.44 – Hand Cannon: Duke is not a fast weapon; in fact, it’s one of the slowest ones we’ve seen in the primary weapon slot. But damn, does it pack a punch. Few things are more satisfying than pulling out this little guy and blasting the crap out of some Fallen mercenary that gets too close. Viper P3 – Pulse Rifle: The Viper P3 is really comfortable. It’s powerful and accurate, and just an all-around well-balanced weapon, making it nice gun to have in any situation. It feels good in our digital hands, lending to many a satisfying kill. Red Death – Pulse Rifle: We’d love the Red Death even if the only thing going for it was the bloody bayonet on the front, which makes us feel super-badass. But the weapon also has the ability to regenerate your health, making it extremely handy.
Destiny: Which Class is Best for You?
Now that the Destiny beta has finally arrived, lucky fans have a chance to get hands-on time with Bungie's next science-fiction shooter masterpiece. One thing that will become instantly clear: Though the game follows in Halo's footsteps in some ways, Destiny expands the shooter genre significantly, introducing serious customization, leveling, and other role-playing game elements to the formula. Among those refinements is the introduction of a class system. Though each of Destiny's three roles is balanced with the others overall, each offers a distinctly different moment-to-moment gameplay experience. Not sure which one to choose? Let's take a look at the benefits – and drawbacks – of all three.

Two New Dragon Age: Inquisition Videos Get Bloody Exciting
During E3 2014 last month, Xbox Wire gave you a hands-on preview of BioWare’s upcoming medieval action-role-playing game, Dragon Age: Inquisition. But we know that’s not nearly enough Dragon Age, so we’ve got something more for you: Full video walkthroughs of the excellent E3 demo, hosted by creative director Mike Laidlaw.
In the first video, Laidlaw leads you through Inquisition’s Lake Luthias, showing off a single region that is bigger than the entire map from the original Dragon Age: Origins. It culminates in a battle between a mage and the High Dragon that perfectly shows off the game's cutting-edge graphics and beautiful visual aesthetic.
Part two of the Inquisition demo shows off some of the party system and dialogue trees that BioWare is well-known for. As the party works through a rescue mission in guard-filled dungeons, they encounter a dangerous adversary.
We can’t wait for Dragon Age: Inquisition – and after you watch these videos you’re going to be just as pumped as us for its release on Xbox One on October 7, 2014.
