Bungie has just opened the Destiny beta to everyone

So far, the Destiny beta's been gated off from the public-at-large. Well, sort of. A pre-order would grant you access, and registering your code would get you even more codes, so it wasn't too difficult to find a way in. As of right now, that barrier's completely removed for everyone.

In a post on Bungie's site, the developer announces that as of this moment (July 24 at 4:00 pm PDT), the Destiny beta is completely open, provided that you have a console that's equipped with PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold. According to Bungie, there should be ads popping up on the consoles later today prompting the download. If you haven't jumped in yet, give it a spin. Walk a mile in a Guardian's shoes until the whole spectacle shuts down on July 27 at 11:59 pm PDT.

Smash sells 705,000 in two days, Destiny players flock to PS4

Super Smash Bros. 3DS is selling as well as you would expect. According to NPD data, 705,000 units in its first two days in the United States, good for fourth best-selling in September. This is close to Pokemon X/Y's one...more

Destiny has so much lore, it's sad that almost none of it is in the game

In-game, Destiny's story is probably the worst part of the experience. Constant Dinklebot "defense" missions and short exposes during load screens are hardly what I'd call a narrative, but that's what Bungie ended up giving u...more

Bungie recommends re-installing Destiny if the patch is giving you issues

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. The d...more

Here's why games can be the perfect social lubricant

It's really tough to get out there and meet people, whether it's online or in the real world. I remember that feeling as an introvert, always being nervous as to whether or not someone would be silently judging me basically a...more

Destiny's six-person raid was cleared by two people

Not content with beating the normal mode six-person raid in Destiny with three players, the same crew attempted it with two, and succeeded. As someone who has cleared it six times and knows the mechanics like the back o...more

Destiny's hotfix is underway, will return with the Iron Banner event

Destiny is getting a small hotfix patch today that will solve a number of connection issues and quick scope bugs. It's underway starting from 10AM EST for "a few hours" -- expect it to be up later this afternoon. Although the...more

Destiny's loot is now way less aggravating

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...more

Bungie explains that they're still working on Destiny's DLC, it's not on-disc

Over the weekend, it was uncovered due to a bug that Destiny had some placeholder content built into it. Two more raids and a number of Strike and Story missions were found, leading people to believe that some of it was ...more

Bungie is finally fixing the awful Cryptarch trolling in Destiny

It took a few weeks, but Bungie is finally getting around to addressing one of the major problems with Destiny -- the first thing on the table is loot. Currently, the "Cryptarch" NPC deciphered unidentified items in an incred...more

There's a replacement for Destiny's Loot Cave

In its update for Destiny that put an end to the oh-so-effective Loot Cave, Bungie noted that "shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played." That well-known spot is now less desirable ...more

We told you way in advance that Payday: The Heist would be free to download (and keep!) on Steam for 24 hours, but the original date has since been moved up to ... today! Claim your free copy here. You know what this game is ...more

If you happen to have EA Access, I highly recommend playing Garden Warfare

I keep forgetting about EA Access. Perhaps you can say the same. It's a $4.99-per-month service for Xbox One that gives unlimited access to select games from you-know-who along with other perks like early demos. One of my fav...more
