Welcome to the Joystiq Weekly wrap-up where we present some of the best stories and biggest gaming news from our sister-publication.
- If you're itching to get your hands on Bungie's post-Halo shooter, Destiny, before its September launch, a Playstation-only beta is coming for pre-orderers in July.
- Apparently a lot of people are into masochism -- the ultra-tough Dark Souls 2 sold 1.2 million copies in its first three weeks.
Flat surfaces, be they canopies or car roofs, give you a sky-high bounce with well-timed button press. You can grind on railings, Jet Set Radio-style, on top of power lines, or swing beneath them while your other hand fires a weapon into the snarling crowd below. You have to jump with effective timing and read the environment as a series of vectors – bounce on that car, hit that power line, flip over that billboard there and then whip out a baseball bat for a shocking ground-pound finale.
- Insomniac Games is bringing its colorful brand of frenetic action to a Microsoft console for the first time with Sunset Overdrive, and from the sounds of Joystiq's preview it could be pretty awesome.
Now that you're caught up on gaming, go spend some time with your mom -- today is her day! Check back next Sunday for another recap, or head over to Joystiq and catch the news as it happens.
