Give it a go, it's fun
As previously mentioned, I think the King's Fall raid in Destiny is the best offering yet. It's clean, doesn't have very many bugs, and has a lot of variety within its walls. At this point I'm sitting on 15 clears, some for gear, some for fun, and others for quests and fragments (a collectible questline).
Whatever your reason is, here are some tips to help you through.
That's not a great thing to hear
Have you been playing Destiny's Nightfall Strikes recently and feeling like the rewards earned were not worth the time put in to earn them? Well, you're not alone. According to Destiny creative director Luke Smith, a lot of y...
Level your blues
Destiny has had a few major shakeups in terms of its mechanics recently, one of which is the way Motes of Light work. Now, they can be consumed to level up your gear (some players still don't know this). This individual ...
Don't panic, says Bungie
Hope you've got lots of space left on your console, Guardian - the latest Destiny update is inexplicably forcing some players to re-download 18GB of data.
"We are actively investigating why some players on the PlayStati...
Silver = real money
Yes, Activision has gone and done it.
In addition to charging $60 for Destiny (more if you bought either Special Edition), $30 for the Season Pass, and $40 (again, or more) for The Taken King, you're looking at $130 mini...
Also, Trials of Osiris for the weekend
I skipped over the Iron Banner appearances (week-long PVP events) in Destiny. By the time they hit, I always had the top raid gear anyway, and the concept of playing the same modes with a slightly different stat modifier wasn...
And hardly any bugs!
Raids are my favorite part of Destiny. As I sit here and write this, having killed Oryx nine times since The Taken King arrived, I'm trying to recall my favorite moments from the two raids before King's Fall, and I can c...
And other facts
Destiny might have a litany of issues, but it has tons of secrets buried beneath its veneer. Bungie seems to have taken more time crafting hidden little tidbits than balancing or creating content, but some of it is cool...
The way item rank works in Destiny's Year Two edition is a bit different than it was in the past. Now, you can infuse items with higher rank gear to ascend their Light level, but the whole process can be confusing for casual ...
There's more dependency on groups now
Destiny has noticeably improved since The Taken King dropped. This is partly because there's a lot more to do than just grind the awful Prison of Elders activity from the last bad expansion, but additionally, the game has gotten much more hardcore.
It's great news for me and my group of comrades, but I've been seeing a lot of people cut back on their playtime lately.
Wake Up, Guardians
When it comes to Destiny's vast collection of fancy space guns, exotic weapons are the fanciest of them all. Every exotic weapon has unique qualities and is usually designed to bend or break a rule that governs one of the gam...
I woke up this morning with the very specific goal of writing about something that wasn't Destiny. Then this Backstreet Boys music video happened and changed everything. The Destiny crew Husky Raid uses in-game dances, a...
Shake what the Traveler gave ya
The Special Order vendor Tess Everis is returning to Destiny, and bringing 18 new emotes with her. The downside? You won't be able to buy the new dances with Glimmer, Destiny's in-game currency.
Instead, players will need to ...
Or do. I'm not your mom
If you care about spoilers in Destiny's newfound story, specifically the bits about Praedyth, you might want to skip this one. A group of Destiny players have found a way to glitch themselves into a previously unknown instanc...
Here's what's new, Guardian
Destiny's latest Hot Fix has nerfed the Three of Coins Exotic Engram exploit.
If you'd been consuming a Three of Coins consumable and then hopped into the Scourge of Winter mission, only to keep rinse/repeating the final boss...
The beta period is over
Year One Destiny players got taken for a ride. It's very clear that Bungie shipped an unfinished game, riddled with questionable design decisions, a bare-bones story, and a distinct lack of content. Hell, the developer w...
Warlock is still the best class
It's almost been one week since Oryx got his claws into Destiny and things couldn't be better. The Taken King expansion, along with the 2.0 patch released earlier on, reworked Destiny's entire leveling system and quest progr...
You are Legend
You've seen the trailers, both in-game and live-action. You're either on the hype train, or are desperately staying out of the way of it. Whatever your position, not many can deny that an action-packed trailer starring your v...
That sure is some pretty music
Those of you who listen to the Destructoid UK podcast will likely already know I'm not a huge fan of Destiny. Don't get me wrong; it's a good game, it's just not for me. That said, the soundtrack in Destiny is something I can...
He just wants us to play this with him?
The live-action spot for Destiny's The Taken King is okay, but Japan does it better. Just watch this masterpiece. There's overwhelming enthusiasm (borderline verbal assault) happening in a laundromat. There's yelling in...
Until the big dude shows up
Equipped with a gun, an aloof attitude, and some one-liners, this Guardian dares to wander into the lair of Oryx, The Taken King. This murderous bastard holds a bit of a grudge because you killed his son. It's an understanda...
Bungie's bungled the bundle of updates
Bungie released Destiny’s 2.0 patch yesterday. Massive overhauls to the game were made, but with it came a buttload of new bugs and issues.
Ever since the update, people have been reporting inability to update the game,...
Two other ones updated, also
Destiny's The Taken King expansion has seen its share of excitement since its reveal. And, by "excitement," we mostly mean scorn. The one-year add-on has had people upset about its price, it has had people upset about a...
Codenamed Bungie projects unearthed
As reported by VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi, ex-Bungie composer Marty O'Donnell has won his lawsuit against his former company. As a recap, back in 2014, O'Donnell, famous for composing the Halo series as well as De...
Bungie offers preview of Crucible modes and maps
Destiny players will be able to access a taste of the upcoming expansion, The Taken King, for free next week.
Bungie confirmed that while you won't be able to test out any new super abilities or increase the level 34 cap...
When the last Destiny expansion hit, we got the recycled, poor excuse for endgame content -- the Prison of Elders -- instead of a real raid. Bungie claimed that a raid would be "coming later," leading many to believ...
It's a single line of dialog, but here's what Ghost sounds like in Destiny: The Taken King now that Nolan North is voicing the character instead of Peter Dinklage. Time to get worked up! Or not!
Resident Destiny fanatic Vikki Blake says "Northbot sounds just like Dinklebot." I'd tentatively call North's performance an improvement based on, again, just this one line, but we'll have to see.
Reveal will be on Instagram later today!
Quick PSA for those that care: Bungie will be revealing some of Destiny: The Taken King's all-new Exotics on Instagram later today.
Actually, it's Xûr, everyone's favourite worm-faced weekend trader, who's making ...
You must like static bags and zip ties
Destiny might be heading to PC.
A job posting on Bungie's website requires new staff to "evaluate PC hardware-specific features and ensure various systems work together across multiple PC configurations to provide a...
Hasn't been sold for months
If you play Destiny, you know the Gjallarhorn. It's a rocket launcher that fires a very powerful shot, and then extremely powerful (tracking) cluster bombs after it hits, doing solar damage the entire time. You know it b...
