News: Destiny: House of Wolves launching May 19, no new raid

Bungie have confirmed that Destiny: House of Wolves will launch on May 19. The new expansion will not include a new raid, instead it will add a new three player cooperative multiplayer arena mode, called "The Prison of Elders".

Patch 1.1.2 is now live and is roughly a 6GB download. This will contain most of the content for the House of Wolves expansion.

Arguably the most hyped FPS game of 2015, Star Wars Battlefront, developed by DICE, will be unveiled at the Star Wars Celebration (April 16 - 19). The new entry will be the first game in the franchise since Star Wars: Battlefront II in 2005. It will launch later this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

News: Uncharted 4 delayed until Autumn 2016

Naughty Dog and Sony have delayed Uncharted 4: A Thief's End to Autumn 2016. Naughty Dog explains "since we showed you our first gameplay reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, more of the game and story have come together, and it’s become clear to us that this game is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned."

Hopefully it will be worth the wait.

2014 Year in Review

2015 is almost here, so it's time to take a look back at everything that happened in 2014!

2014 has been a great year for BTG mostly due to the release of Destiny. The past couple years the clan hasn't found a game where everyone has been able to enjoy it. For the past 3 months, the majority of BTG has been playing Destiny on a daily basis, often into the early hours of the morning. 2014 has also seen the clan gain new members, while a couple of long-time clan members left. 2015 will be a huge year for games, as the PS3 will finally be retired, with most games only coming to the new-gen consoles. There will be a feature on the big games posted in January.

[April Fools] Announcing our new clan name, [BTGC] Beyond The Grumpy Cat

After months of discussion, we have decided to change the clan name to Beyond The Grumpy Cat. As many of you would have already seen Grumpy Cat on the internet, we decided to use the internet sensation as our new logo. We have also decided to adapt the new clan tag [BTGC] (yes, very original we know) for use in the games we play. The clan will also celebrate by sending out a Grumppucino to all members (the drinks on us!). Please visit www.drinkgrumpycat.com and choose your flavour! Tell us in the comments below so we can arrange this ASAP.
