Love is in the air for Destiny's Crimson Days


Valentine's Day-themed event
Jan 21
// Darren Nakamura
After a long holiday, Bungie is back to work this week. For the first update of the new year, Destiny will be adding an event not unlike the Festival of the Lost from Halloween. Except since this one is coming in February, it...

PSA: Destiny's Nightfall is broken at the moment


Hey, get the door
Jan 12
// Chris Carter
[Update: Bungie has rectified the issue as of this afternoon.] As if there already wasn't a reason to do the Nightfall (hello useless multiple 290ish Ghost rewards!), Destiny's weekly event is now broken this week. After the ...

If you log into Destiny in the next few days, you'll net bonus rewards


Coins, Motes, and an Emblem

Bungie crafted an incentive for Destiny players to log on after a long winter break, and it's as easy as logging in and completing one activity (a PVP skirmish, for example). As of today you can pick up rewards, which in...

Bungie's approach to Destiny in a nutshell


'Year 2' rages on
Jan 06
// Chris Carter
Destiny has undergone a lot of changes since its inception -- some for the better, but a lot of it was altered for the worse in "Year 2" of the game. For starters, there's a massive gap between leveling weapons and armor (to ...

Halo Reach on Xbox One has a crummy framerate


Halo on Xbox One is 1 for 3

When Halo: Reach was added to the Xbox One backward compatibility list, I was mondo excited. Reach is easily my favorite Halo game, with a campaign that eschewed complex mythology in favor of atmosphere and more accessib...

Destiny's weekly raid challenge is the Warpriest again


Well that was short-lived
Dec 24
// Chris Carter
Over the course of the past month or so, we've seen the raid challenge mode in Destiny shift to the Warpriest, then Golgoroth, and Oryx. Now it's back to the Warpriest with the exact same challenge as the initial week, w...

For those of you who enjoy Destiny's Iron Banner PVP event, you won't have to sneak away from whatever family events you're doing this Christmas week to play it. Bungie has announced that it will start on December 29, ru...

Destiny's Oryx raid challenge is the hardest one to date


All 16 detonations at once
Dec 15
// Chris Carter
The seemingly final raid challenge has cycled in for Destiny's King's Fall. The first offering was Warpriest, last week was Golgoroth, and now, skipping Daughters entirely, it's Oryx's turn. I managed to down him three times ...

The 'experiment' is now live
Aw here it goes! For weeks now, Destiny dataminers have been hacking away at the game's code, looking for anything of note. Although they've found plenty of tertiary things, they figured out one huge addition -- paid exp...

Destiny with all the DLC is cheaper than just The Taken King add-on today


Savings that will have you over the moon

As we inch toward the end of the year, retailers keep doing all they can to turn their existing inventory into profit. Destiny is the beneficiary of the holiday sales creep today, as the legendary edition of the game is ...

Destiny's SRL Sparrow Racing is a middling and shallow diversion

Bungie has cycled in the new raid challenge this week for Destiny, as part of an effort to deliver a few pieces of guaranteed 320 loot to hardcore players, and keep them interested in the game. Instead of focusing on the War ...

Destiny's raid challenges are lame so far, but at least they guarantee loot

This week, Destiny's raid challenges debuted for both normal and hard mode variants. The gist is that each week, a new boss will have an active modifier that's designed to test player's skill, and reward them with specific bo...

Here's how Destiny's Refer-a-Friend thing works


'We can make it if we try!'
Nov 24
// Vikki Blake
Bungie has revealed what spoils you can score if you successfully convince a pal to play Destiny.  There are already 25 million registered players in Destiny, but that's not enough for Bungie. The publisher wants you to introduce a friend via the Refer-a-Friend website (your pal must be on the same platform as you to qualify).

On the next episode of "as the nerf turns," it looks like Bungie is making pulse rifles and shotguns less effective in its big December update for Destiny. This follows an update in the 2.0 edition that actually made pulse ri...

Destiny players experiencing 'Vulture' issues on Xbox One


These error codenames are rad
Nov 19
// Vikki Blake
Some Xbox One Destiny players have been encountering "Vulture" errors since the 2.02 update recently rolled out. You should only receive that error if you try to play co-op or PvP without a Xbox Live Gold (or PlayStation Plus, as the code is not unique to Xbox) subscription, but it seems players are triggering the problem even if their sub is active.

So this is a weird one. Over at the Destiny subreddit, they've uncovered something surprising, straight from Bungie. According to the official help section of the game's site, failing to go to orbit after an activity (re...

While Crota's End never quite duplicated the challenge of Destiny's very first raid, The Vault of Glass, those of us familiar enough with the second raid know all too well that it's the end that's the tricky bit. But then this guy comes along and solos it not just on the hardest difficulty, but also using a Rock Band drum-kit and wtf I don't even. Marvel at this:

Destiny's Hard Mode raid is pretty much the same, and that's mostly okay


It was a solid base
Oct 23

When designing the King's Fall raid in Destiny, the developers noted that they created Hard Mode first, then went to Normal. It makes sense, then, that the two would basically be the same. I just have mixed feelings about the loot system.
