Watch the music video for Paul McCartney’s Destiny song right here

Paul McCartney’s involvement was one of the first things we officially learned about Bungie’s Destiny. Since then, those that have played the game have discovered that the ex-Beatle is responsible for the game’s main theme, “Hope For the Future.”

Yesterday, Sir Paul released a music video of the song for everyone to enjoy and it’s… well… let’s just say Obi-Wan Kenobi would be proud.

The video drops McCartney onto the surface of Mars and Venus while characters from the game sit back and listen to his performance. There’s no lighters, but then, there’s no McCartney either. He appears in the video as a hologram that looks an awful lot like Alec Guinness in Star Wars.

The timing couldn’t have been better as Destiny’s first expansion, The Dark Below, is available to download today.

Daily Scoop: December 5, 2014 – Disney game sale at Steam

I’m off from work today, which means I’m just sitting around doing nothing, playing video games and surfing the Internet! HA! Just kidding. I’m cleaning the apartment, culling clothes that don’t fit anymore, and dealing with maintenance, who came to fix our ceiling, replace a light bulb, and fix the door in the hallway that keeps slamming into our door and scaring a year off our lives. GOOD TIMES, MAN. GOOD. TIMES.

Anyway, let’s talk deals! Steam’s Weekend Deal is all about Disney! Get up to 50% off select games, including Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes, DuckTales: Remastered, and TRON 2.0. The Daily Deal is Xenonauts, which is on sale for $16.74.

Daily Scoop: December 3, 2014 – Rain, rain, rain

I know it’s only been a couple of days, but it feels like it’s been raining in Philadelphia for forever. I almost forget what it’s like for it to not be raining. I want to be snuggled up under a blanket playing video games! That is the only cure for these rainy-day blues.
