It is finished! I played a little over 30 hours of the Destiny Alpha and made this short mini-tage of the clips I remembered to record. All the footage is from my perspective but there may be a familiar face or two. Really wanted to go back and play while I was stitching this together, it just makes the wait for the Beta a little more excruciating. See you Starside on July 17th!

Tell us your favorite parts or how bad I am.

I don’t think you’re ready for this.

A small and fortunate group of Gunslingers had the opportunity to get their gauntlets on the Destiny Alpha build, and we did not let that opportunity go to waste. I won’t bore you with words, friend. Our very own Sunburned Goose put together an exhilarating montage comprising many pieces of the Destiny Alpha. PvP? Got it. Exploring the ruins of Old Russia? Check. Public Events? In there. Oh, and don’t forget to take a look at the Devil’s Den Strike on Legend difficulty.

Watch and salivate. Start some chatter on the boards. Soon enough, you too will Become Legend.

Hold on to your butts, Guardians.

The three man wrecking squad of Cute, Cozmo, and myself dove into the heart of the Devil’s Den in hopes of Becoming Legend. This is no montage. You will not be watching a highlight or blooper reel. You will experience the ENTIRE strike as we did, through each of our eyes and alongside our tactical chatter. Bungie built the challenge; it was up to us to overcome.

Ride along with us, and come talk about it afterward.

Tied The Leader started out as a Halo 2 clan, but over the last 9 years has evolved. One title does not rule them all any longer, and gaming communities have branched out across multiple games as well as platforms. A small squad of us at TTL spent a great deal of time in the DayZ mod gathering loot, hunting bandits, and dying in hilarious ways. I have been gathering small bits of footage from these shenanigans for the last 2 years and finally cut them together into a tribute to our time playing DayZ. Special thanks to the following people who have played DayZ with us, most of them were in the video somewhere.

As a group that was born in the Clan system of Halo 2, Tied The Leader has always been married to the Xbox console and its successive iterations. There was no need to venture out into the vast open world of PC gaming as all the killer apps were already on our chosen platform. But with the rise in popularity of Minecraft, and PC’s indie gaming scene along with it, a few Gunslingers started to take notice, splitting or making time for these new experiences that weren’t available anywhere else. That group has grown to a handful of gamers who now devote a good bit of their time to digging through the PC marketplaces and playing these games together in search of gold.

The majority of the Gunslingers are still firmly rooted in the console environment they’ve spent most of their gaming life in, as the PC experience can seem a bit rough to delve into to the newcomer. So, for you Gunslingers and readers who have yet to take the plunge into the relative lawlessness of the PC gaming-space  (or if you just want to catch up with what a few of us are playing), we’re starting up a video series so you can hopefully share in those experiences.

Here’s a bit of what TTL Plays:

Last week’s display of digitized dream machines focused on the sleeker, sexier side of Forza Motorsport 5. This week brings an entirely different take on the next-gen racing game.

Welcome to the blooper reel.

By now, you realize that the Gunslingers enjoy a variety of interactive online experiences. Most of them involve guns. Some of them involve magic. This, however, deals with neither. The explosions here are contained within combustion chambers. The only fire you’ll see will come from exhaust pipes.

It’s not magic, readers; it’s engineering, with an emphasis on “engine”. Welcome to Forza Motorsport 5.

What happens when a ragtag bunch of Gunslingers decide to get EXTREME?

Our merry band of ne’er-do-wells happily answered that question for you, dear reader. Cute, Balzy, Sandman, Nightmare, and I decided to ditch motorized transportation and move to a more man-powered method of mayhem. It was time for the BMX Gang to ride, and ride we did.

Let’s get right down to it.
