Less catching up, more improvements Destiny was a functional game at launch, but a number of design choices were made that left all of us scratching our heads. The Cryptarch system in 1.0 was horrible in that it allowed players to earn legendary engrams (r... read feature

Bungie rolled out a controversial patch recently (which wasn't even that big, honestly, as auto-rifles are still really effective in PVE), and some users are reporting issues with the game after picking up the download.

Here we go. The patch that fixes -- or, at least improves -- how loot works in Destiny.
Chris already detailed the patch, which is out now, at length. But the short of it is that Legendary (purple) engrams will now always awa... read

Man, Destiny. I seriously can't remember the last game that I felt so ambivalent about, but was so completely hooked on. Here's me and Bill dicking around on the Moon and discussing our general thoughts on the game, and killing the Moon-Princes with a big dumb sword.
