Gamer Culture

Gamers have a unique and diverse culture within our society.  We tend to do things a little differently, and that's why we have this corner Cinelinx set aside specifically for them.  This section will feature articles dealing specifically with that culture and the integration of video games into every day life. 

Destiny 2 Beta Brings Promising Hopes

When Destiny first arrived in Alpha years ago, I was blown away. I was addicted to the Alpha and with all the promises Bungie made about the final game I was more than excited to continue my adventure. Well the story has been told and Bungie stripped a lot of the content from the initial release, leaving most of us a bit underwhelmed until eventual DLC expansions released. Luckily Destiny started to take shape, and it seems Destiny 2 is the release we’ve all been waiting for.

Hands on with || Middle Earth: Shadow Of War ||

The Warner Brothers Booth was arguably the most flamboyant and atmospheric booths at this years E3 show floor. Black walls that nearly reached the high ceiling enclosed the Middle Earth: Shadow Of War game demos and their preemptive theatrical walkthrough. A massive dragon was on display up front for fans to take photos with, and they hired the tallest actors they could find to play towering orcs that playfully harassed folks in line. To top it off, a red ambient light shot up into the ceiling and somehow animated itself like an evil and encompassing aura. Next door was the Lego Dimensions booth, and a live stage where WB’s showed off more of their featured games
