Update: Watch the Google Hangout discussion here and the Xbox One stream above! At first, Joystiq said, "Sure, I'll check out Destiny. Why not? Bungie's made some good games. We like playing games." Then we played it. A lot of it. Then the beta went offline for a couple of days and Joystiq...

Joystiq Streams: Rambling down the Road Not Taken [UPDATE: Relive the stream!]

Road Not Taken, Spry Fox's new roguelike puzzler for PlayStation 4 and PC, is nowhere near as outwardly forbidding as The Long Dark, which punished Joystiq Streams earlier this week, but seeing its little hooded hero huddled up against a fire in the dark, trying to make it a little bit further,...

Joystiq Streams: Can Eternal Darkness still scare? [UPDATE: Relive the stream!]

The things that terrify us never fade - the dark, basements, isolation, bugs, lake monsters, Paula Deen -but time isn't kind to our scary stories. Some horror stands up, though. The Exorcist is every bit as freaky as it was 40 years ago, but is Silicon Knights' Eternal Darkness: Sanity's...
