Just two days after Halloween, Activision’s spending a whole lot of money on candy—the publisher announced tonight that they’ve bought Candy Crush developer King for $5.9 billion. Yes, that’s BILLION.
In the summer of 2013, months before they were supposed to ship their next video game, the game developers at Bungie went into panic mode.

It’s a conversation anybody who grew up in the 90s has had at least a dozen times: “Remember when MTV actually played music videos?” Yes, yes—we all do. Those times are over. Well, those times were over: Activision is about to change everything. It’s launching Guitar Hero TV: a “channel” where you can not only watch…
Over at Pure Xbox they’ve secured what they say are leaked screenshots for a soon-to-be-announced Transformers brawler from Activision. Maybe, maybe not—all I know for certain is the shots depict a game I’d love to play.
“This is stupid,” I try to tell myself. “Weren’t music games just a fad?” For one long minute, I struggle to hit a single note on my plastic axe, as game developers and PR people fire eye-daggers into the back of my head. But then, all of a sudden, it clicks. I’m strumming up a storm. I’m playing the new …

"Hold X to review Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare." If only it were that simple.
I've played way too many hours of Destiny, and I still hadn't pieced together a lot of the intricacies of both its story and gameplay.
