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 ...

How am I gonna get through PoE 35 now?

Destiny's 'Triumph' system requires a lot of work for a stupid reward


'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...




Destiny's Smith: 'My words made it sound as if Bungie doesn't care about their fans'


'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


Haha
Jun 24
 
As we all know, Activision is taking fans for a ride for the new Destiny expansion, and Bungie is getting really defensive about it. This is after the last expansion...well...sucked. Today they have announced that they a...

Looks an awful lot like it
Jun 03

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 was one of the weirdest releases in recent memory. It was so unbelievably ambitious, but when it dropped, it was basically a fraction of what Activision advertised. As time went on many tweaks were made to the ga...

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


Actual details are coming tomorrow
May 05

Strictly 3v3
Apr 29

You know those things we made you earn? Yeah, forget about them
Apr 24

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]

It's small, but telling

Glad they finally acknowledged that latter bit
Mar 13

Destiny will get one more update before the next expansion


Whenever that is
Mar 06
 
The last update for Destiny was pretty great. I logged in to check it out, and promptly quit because there really isn't anything to do. Bungie is teasing the next update however (1.1.2), of which it isn't giving details ...




Bungie adds support for moving Destiny items between characters online and in-app


Finally
Feb 27
 
Chalk this up to "it should have been in at launch," but you can now transfer items between characters in Destiny. The process isn't perfect though since it isn't in-game, but you can do it by way of the companion app or Bung...

Samuel L. Jackson is the real Ghost we deserve


Don't be tellin' me about foot massages
Feb 06

Though it isn't coming until the end of February

This Destiny guitar medley is pretty rockin'


I think we can all agree it has great music
Jan 28

House of Wolves might be Bungie's last chance to save Destiny


The Season Pass buck stops in March
Jan 26

Destiny's Crota's End Hard Mode is disappointing outside of the final fight


More of the same until the end
Jan 22
 
I have a stable of around 30 people I raid with in Destiny regularly, but yesterday I picked the five I play with the most and set a scheduled time for the brand new Crota's End Hard Mode. Everyone showed up, and te...

Lots of fixes/improvements

Well, they told you it would be legendary

Destiny Ghost Hunter is a really cool third-party site to track secrets


A third-party tool better than what's in-game? You don't say
Jan 01
 
Since I already explained why Destiny is both bad and good, let's cut to the chase without talking about the game's shortcomings, shall we?An individual has created a really nifty third-party site that allows you to loca...
