Destiny released earlier this week, and all you want to do is stay home from work/school and play, play, play. But life won’t let you, and we know exactly how much you’re suffering. We feel your pain. To combat, we’ve got five—albeit satirical—ways to help you get through your long day until Destiny hour(s).

1. Set your work/school desktop/phone/tablet screen to the Destiny poster wallpaper. The thing is so glorious, just staring at it gives you an out-of-this-world experience.

I grabbed this over at DestinyNews.net

2. Commence crying about your Warlock/Hunter/Titan waiting at home and all those other people playing and advancing without you.

3. Watch the live action Destiny trailer, and the hundreds of others, too. They are epic, and just as epic as the games. So take your pick, and watch away! (And don’t get caught.)

4. Read all the blogs about Destiny because you clearly don’t have to work/study. What is life when you have Destiny?

5. At the end of the day, or as you leave work/school (yay!), say to yourself, in the voice of Bane, I’m here to fulfill Ra’s al Ghul’s Destiny!

Now get home and show the Fallen who’s boss.

Whether it’s set in history, or set in the future, there are games that make us shiver and maybe even squeal (admit it!) in anticipation. It’s especially addicting and contagious when you see others keeling over in excitement. But who are we to complain? We fell in love with gaming because of the excitement disease.

Here are a few games we’re crazy excited for:

Assassin’s Creed Unity

Why I’m excited for it:
For one, I love Arno’s outfit, and I love the Paris setting. According to Ubisoft, the city will be huge, and the explorable field bigger than ever before. The ability to play with friends is even better, and let’s face it, that trailer just makes you shiver. My goal is to play the other games in the series before this releases though!

The Order: 1886

Why I’m excited for it:
The release for this one is way too far off, in my opinion, because I want it right now. The game logo (yes, those get me excited, too. What can I say, I’m a designer!), the graphics, the fact that myth and history will collide, and the whole technology advancing sooner than it does in our time: it sounds awesome. And it’s set in a historical time: Victorian-Era London. Cannot wait.

It’s also a Playstation exclusive, and one of the main reasons I went for that console rather than the Xbox One.

Shadow of Mordor

Why I’m excited for it:
Tolkien? Lord of the Rings? How can you not be excited? I’ve seen some complaints for the storyline, but I like when old stories are re-imagined and I’m quite excited to see more about this one.

Dragons and maps and fantasy. Fantasy! It’s my one-true love and the trailers for the game have been awesome so far. Definitely shiver-worthy!

Assassin’s Creed Rogue

Why I’m excited for it:
Sadly, this trailer doesn’t make me shiver in anticipation—vague, much?—but the fact that you play as a Templar has me excited. Play as the bad guy? Hear his side of the story? Yes, please. But as it’s slated for last-gen consoles exclusively, I doubt I’ll be playing it.

It’s here, it’s here! The legendary, white PS4 we’ve been dying waiting for! We’ve been holding off on the purchase until something special came along, and this counts for special, right? It’s, as they say, legendary. And it includes Destiny, so it’s a double-jackpot in my book.

But you’re not here for that, are you? You’re here for the unboxing!

First up, the package, in all its glory:

unboxing-1

Opened up (everything in the box):

unboxing-2

Out of the box (and a mess):

unboxing-3

The goods!

unboxing-4

DESTINY. I cannot wait to play it and set it up and gah. After days of thinking, I mostly purchased the PS4, rather than the Xbox One, because A) it’s white! and B) because of The Order: 1886, which is a PS exclusive. So much excitement!

Out Now will hopefully be a weekly feature, where you’ll find the week’s gaming releases, all in one place. This week features one of my most anticipated games of the year: DESTINY.

September 9th

Destiny for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One | Find it on Amazon | GameStop | BestBuy

destiny

About the game:

Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned our solar system, but it didn’t last. Something hit us, knocked us down. The survivors built a city beneath the Traveler, and have begun to explore our old worlds, only to find them filled with deadly foes. You are a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth, able to wield incredible power. Defend the City. Defeat our enemies. Reclaim all that we have lost. Be brave.

September 9th

NHL 15 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One | Find it on Amazon | GameStop | BestBuy

nhl15

About the game:

Every moment counts when your team takes the ice. You grip your stick tighter and steel yourself for the faceoff, ready to snag the puck and put your play into action. Your offense is razor-sharp, your defense is airtight and your enforcer isn’t afraid to bloody up the opposing team or take a few minutes in the penalty box. Once the puck is in motion the five men behind you burst into action, sending it through a series of intricate passes too fast to intercept. You shoot past other players and take control of the puck once more, a breakaway move that brings it all down to you and the other team’s goalie. This is your chance to reserve your place in the history books and lead your team to glory — do you have what it takes?

September 11th

Teslagrad for Wii U | Find it on Nintendo

teslagrad

About the game:

Teslagrad is a 2D puzzle-platformer, where you play as a young lad who suddenly finds himself embroiled in an ancient conflict that will shake the foundations of his entire existence, and bring a gruesome truth to light.

The game revolves around the use of electricity and magnetism, and your ingenuity will be put to the test as you employ the amazing technology of the Teslamancers to traverse the abandoned Tesla Tower. The game is completely devoid of both text and dialogue, and prefers to tell the story purely through visual means.

September 12th

intro

Game + uli
Pronounciation: game-oo-lee

Gameuli is a fresh start. A brand new blog by old time bloggers.

We’re a sister duo, and we’ve been blogging about books for quite a few years. It was something we were solely passionate about, until we started gaming.

So if we can share our love for books, why not share our love for gaming, too?

With Gameuli, we hope to feature new games and old games alike. Spotlight our favorites, share fun and exclusive stories, and of course, keep you updated on the latest happenings in the gaming world. As we’re fairly new to gaming ourselves, we’ll be featuring some gaming basics to help educate others on the jargon, fandoms, and more.

Our main goal is to stand out. So we’re going to keep it a little bit more personal than your typical gaming news site. More us. Another goal? Books and games are both an outlet to another world, an escape from our every day lives. Because they’re so similar, and because we love them both, another one of our goals with Gameuli is to mesh the two together.

We may be new to gaming, but we’ve been blogging for quite some time, so we like to think we’ve got this handled.

But we’ll see, won’t we?
