Bungie continues to hype its Destiny shooter post-launch, with the latest bit of messenging courtesy of COO Pete Parsons and an interview at GamesIndustry.biz.

Ubisoft's The Crew: Not pre-screened for critics

I used to love reading movie reviews in the local paper when I was a kid, though sometimes it puzzled me when a film was listed as "not pre-screened for critics."

Stick and Rudder: Oh yeah, Star Citizen is a game I'm following!

I actually said the title of this piece out loud the other day.

Stick and Rudder: What if Star Citizen fails?

As Star Citizen's crowdfunding totals spiral ever higher, so too do the cries of the naysayers, negative nancies, and the ne'er-do-wells who seemingly exist to rain on the space sim sandbox's parade. Some of this hand-wringing is probably justified since with each new stretch goal, fan expectati...
