Sony's latest ad makes it look like you own Destiny on PS4 when you don't

Thankfully, it's easy to turn off
Oct 06
Yesterday, plenty of PlayStation 4 users stumbled across Destiny in their game library. That's unusual considering that they don't actually own Destiny. Is this some sort of free trial? Maybe, fingers crossed, a mistake ...

Microtransactions are coming to Destiny, but so are 18 new emotes

Shake what the Traveler gave ya
Oct 05
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 ...

Review: Destiny: The Taken King

The beta period is over
Sep 25
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...

Bungie knows the Destiny 2.0 patch is kind of broken

Bungie's bungled the bundle of updates
Sep 10
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,...

Activision is giving some last-gen Destiny players free USB drives

Are you an 'existing and active' player?
Sep 09
With Destiny's new expansion The Taken King launching next week, the game just received a new update that is too large to install on last-gen consoles with less than 20GB of storage built in.  When this was announced las...

Oh for goodness sake, Destiny's Taken King raid won't be in at launch

Aug 31
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...

Hear the new Nolan North-voiced Ghost in Destiny

RIP Dinklebot
Aug 25
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.

Bungie teases Destiny The Taken King Exotics

Wow, Destiny's Xur is selling the Gjallarhorn, the best weapon in the game

Hasn't been sold for months
Aug 14
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...

Destiny's Taken King is a real soul-sucker

Cinematic trailer for upcoming expansion
Aug 06
Or is something else going on at 1:20? Seems like some nice young cats come to wake the old man up and he responds by devouring their very life. Rude. The trailer also shows off the Taken King's massive (space) ship that was...

Destiny players have clocked up 2 billion hours

(Only half of that is me, honest)
Aug 05
Destiny has over 20 million players. Together, they have clocked up a combined total of two billion hours play time since launch.   That works out at around 100 hours of gameplay from each player. (Which is around half o...

Nolan North replacing Peter Dinklage in Destiny

Ghost's lines re-recorded
Aug 04
Prolific voice actor Nolan North (Uncharted's Nathan Drake) is becoming the Ghost in Destiny, reports Game Informer. He'll voice the AI companion in The Taken King and, no joke, the original game too -- the dialogue is being ...

Bungie shows off Destiny: The Taken King's Dreadnaught

It looks big, you guys
Jul 31
Bungie has released a crapton of new Destiny images, including a selection of concept art designed to bring The Taken King to life. "Conceptually, we’ve dreamed of facing the Hive on their own ground for a long time," said community manager, DeeJ, on this week's update. "With the development of Destiny: The Taken King, we’ve had the chance to fully realize the Dreadnaught."

Destiny players kill Gorgons in VoG raid, must be witches in real life

I don't even
Jul 23
This is just ridiculous. If you're familiar with the Vault of Glass raid in Destiny you'll know that it's arguably the harder of the two raids to complete, not least because every section (besides the opener) ships ...

Bungie nerfs Gjallarhorn, tweaks our favourite Destiny Exotics

How am I gonna get through PoE 35 now?

'Year One' fans suffered a beta phase
Jul 08
Having played and conquered every bit of Destiny for almost a year now, it's clear to me that the game was shipped as a beta. Bungie has provided a number of great quality-of-life updates, but the last House of Wolves&nb...

Limited edition Destiny: The Taken King PS4 bundle

Coming September, actually looks nice
Jul 07
I don't like Destiny, but this PS4 bundle for the somewhat controversial The Taken King expansion looks alright as far as skinned consoles go. Plus, white. Wish my PS4 was white. I wouldn't always lose the controller in my bl...

'That asshat was me'
Jun 25
When Destiny fans made their views on the pricing - and content thereof - of The Taken King's Collector's Edition painfully clear, Bungie didn't say much. According to the latest Bungie update, however, the reason for their i...

Destiny rubs salt in the overpriced expansion wound with Red Bull XP

Review: Destiny: House of Wolves

Den of puppies
May 22
I am convinced that somewhere, all of the new assets for the Destiny: House of Wolves expansion were lost, forcing Bungie to restart the entire process all over again. Why else would almost the entire $20 premium DLC be a reskin?

Review in Progress: Destiny: House of Wolves

Den of puppies
May 19

Destiny: House of Wolves' newest teaser trailer is needlessly vague

Actual details are coming tomorrow

Strictly 3v3

Badass with cerebral palsy beats Destiny's Crota with his feet

Kick ass!
Mar 29
This awesome guy uses his feet to beat Destiny's Crota raid, on top of living with cerebral palsy. I'm pretty sure that makes him a badass. If you feel otherwise, come fight me.  The ending is the cutest thing ever when they finish the raid and give each other high fives; made me a little teary-eyed.  Boy with Cerebral Palsy defeats crota with feet! [reddit]
