about X hours ago from

Reader Nick “Nick Brick” Jensen emailed us today to share his latest Lego creation, inspired by Bungie’s work on the Halo franchise. This 40-inch long, 15.5-inch wide replica of Halo: Reach’s UNSC Savannah is truly a work of art.

Jensen built the Savannah as part of the “SHIPtember Challenge” (that’s Seriously Huge Investment in Parts). The contest challenged builders to create a spacecraft at least 100 Lego studs (32.5 inches) in length.

Reader Discussion: What Were You Playing At This Time Last Year?

Put away Destiny for a little while. Shelve your hype for Shadow of Mordor. Ease your foot off of Forza Horizon 2’s gas pedal. We’re going to take a trip in the wayback machine.

Thing back to the end of September 2013. You didn’t have a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One yet. In fact, you may not have even seen one in person.

Even though you may have been looking ahead, there was something on Steam or your consoles that grabbed your attention. Were you dungeon diving in Diablo III? Perhaps you were exploring the vastness of the California countryside in GTA V. Maybe you were saving the world as one of the colorful, Wonderful 101.

Lego Imps, Cacodemons, And Revenants Head To Seattle BrickCon

If you can’t make it out to BrickCon, which is taking place at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall on October 4 and 5, you don’t have to miss out on this amazing homage. Heath put together a flythrough, so you can see the detail on the imps, cacodemons, revenants, and more.

Free Garden Warfare Update Adds New Characters, Tacos

EA and PopCap Games are releasing a free update to Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, which adds new playable characters, additional support characters, and – best of all – delicious tacos to the game.

The Legends of the Lawn update brings new characters, like a dino-bone-clad paleontologist zombie and a jade cactus, to the fight, along with more than 200 new customization options. It also adds the new Taco Bandits game mode. It's essentially capture the flag, only with the tasty food replacing the stale old banner. Zombies will have to trudge through heavily fortified defenses to wrest the three tacos from the leafy hands of the opposition. Take a look at the video below to get a guided tour of the new characters and mode,

'Yes, It's Gonna Work," Says Battlefield Hardline Creative Director

'Yes, It's Gonna Work,

EA has had a tough run lately. 2013's Sim City had a disastrous launch. Battlefield 4 took six months to become relatively stable. This year, The Sims 4 and NHL 15 were panned for missing content from the previous versions. 2015 is going to be better though, at least for the Battlefield franchise, according to EA.

Speaking with Game Revolution at the Tokyo Game Show, Battlefield Hardline creative director Ian Milham addressed questions about the game's stability at launch.

"What you're basically asking is, 'Is you're game going to work?' and the answer is yes, it's gonna work," Milham told Game Revolution. EA launched a Battlefield Hardline beta during E3, following that, the publisher delayed the game from fall 2014 to early 2015.

Wield The One Ring With Shadow Of Mordor's Season Pass

Wield The One Ring With Shadow Of Mordor's Season Pass

In a classic case of burying the lead, the season pass trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor takes a while to get to the point. OK, so you get access to beast hunting missions. And you can kill some orcs in leaderboard trials. Oh, and then there's this bit in which you get to wield the One Ring. Wait... what?

One of the bigger pieces of the DLC allows players to take control of Celebrimbor, Talion's wraith companion. Before he was a spectral avenger though, Celebrimbor was one of the finest craftsmen of the second age and was instrumental in creating the rings of power (unwittingly assisting Sauron begin is reign of terror).

If you opt into the season pass, you'll be able to play as Celebrimbor as he was in the second age. You'll even have the One Ring at your disposal. For those that aren't heavily into Tolkein, this is what we call a "big deal."

You can check out the trailer above and the season pass details here. For more, check out our review of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The game is out tomorrow, September 30, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Last-gen versions will be out on November 18. The season past costs $24.99.

Report: Videos Reveal Details Of Destiny's First Two Expansions

about X hours ago from

If you purchased one of the upgraded versions of Destiny, bundled with your game was access to the first two expansion packs. The two add-ons, titled The Dark Below and House of Wolves, will be rolling out in December 2014 and early 2015 respectively. Now, it seems, we know what to expect from them.

Two videos have appeared online depicting a bug that reportedly locks players out of all content, including the Tower "city" hub. A side effect seems to reveal story, strike, and raid content coming in the two expansions, though.

We won't spoil that with a list here, but if you are interested in seeing what's in store, we captured screengrabs in the gallery below and you can watch the two videos we've embedded from users Scott M and Kinsey_92. What we can tell you without giving too much away, is that there are six story missions, three strikes, and two raids included across the two expansions.
