Bungie's approach to Destiny in a nutshell

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 the point where...

Halo Reach on Xbox One has a crummy framerate

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 accessible multiplayer ...

Destiny's weekly raid challenge is the Warpriest again

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, which is rather ...

Iron Banner is coming back to Destiny this month

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, running for a wee...

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

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 today with the ...

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...   read

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

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 on sale for hal...

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

Bungie laid out its plans going forward for Destiny today. Instead of providing full expansion-like experiences, they're going to be focusing on micro-events, like the Festival of the Lost Halloween activity at the Tower a few months back. ...

This week's Destiny raid challenge forces every player to participate

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 Priest, this ti...

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 bonuses if they m...

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

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 fri...

Hold up: The MIDA Multi-Tool is coming back to Destiny

When Destiny made the jump to "Year 2" with The Taken King, a number of Exotics didn't make it along for the ride. A huge one is the Gjallarhorn, a notoriously unbalanced rocket launcher that nearly every raid group "required" for...

Bungie flip-flops, nerfs Pulse Rifles in Destiny right after buffing them

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 rifles not terrib...

New Destiny update features sword vendor, return of Iron Banner

Failing to go to orbit in Destiny after an activity will nullify postmaster rewards

Bungie finally addresses Destiny's weapon parts problem

Destiny's economy is in constant flux, and Bungie never seems to know what to do about it. This patch everyone seemed to be fine with the changes in The Taken King, but after a few weeks, some issues started creeping up. For one, players no...

It turns out that Destiny's raid challenges are time-gated

While Destiny is still missing a lot of features, and the loot system is never quite right, Bungie has a ton of variables to account for since it's so massive. Most notably, a millions-strong community that will datamine the living shi...

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

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.

It turns out that Destiny's terrible Iron Banner loot was due to a 'bug'
