The warlock helmet is ugly as sin

More places for you to dance with strangers

It can't come soon enough since there's nothing to do

[Update: The trailer is live.] Destiny has been lagging quite a bit lately. With no new content for the past few months, players in my group (myself included) have been quitting left and right. Thankfully we're about to get a...




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]




Destiny is getting more bank space soon, but the previous generation is already having memory issues


It's small, but telling
Mar 27
 
Bungie has detailed what we can expect from an upcoming April update for Destiny, and it's mostly slanted towards extra vault space. Now instead of 20 spots for armor, weapons, and general items all around, that number w...




Bungie actively working on vault space, raid fixes, and audio options for Destiny


Glad they finally acknowledged that latter bit
Mar 13
 
Bungie is ready to share a bit more of what it has in store for patch 1.1.2 and beyond, and as incremental as this game slowly updates over time, they all sound like good changes. Vault space is always mentioned every so ofte...




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...




Bungie implements patch 1.1.1 in Destiny, mostly changes weapon balance


Everything else is minor outside of the heavy ammo fix
Feb 26
 
Bungie has unloaded patch 1.1.1 into the Destiny world, which has a number of weapon balance adjustments, in addition to a new reputation window, matchmaking for weekly Heroics, and a fix for the dreaded heavy ammo bug. ...

Update 1.1.1

Reputation checking made easier

Along with the heavy ammo glitch fix and weapon adjustments, Destiny will get another minor improvement -- the ability to see reputation rank within the pause menu. Previously you had to go to the Tower and manually chec...




Samuel L. Jackson is the real Ghost we deserve


Don't be tellin' me about foot massages
Feb 06
 
One of the many knocks against Destiny is its story -- I mean, if you can call it that. And after earlier versions of the game, there was a vocal group of gamers who suggested that Peter Dinklage, the loveable Tyrion Lannist...




Bungie is overhauling some weapon types in the next Destiny update


But the new DLC timeline sounds pretty damn terrible
Feb 05
 
Bungie has posted its weekly update for Destiny, and surprise, it actually has some substance for once. New weapon changes are coming, mostly to the tune of auto rifle, shotgun, pulse rifle, and hand cannon adjustments. The f...




Praise The Speaker: Bungie to fix Destiny's heavy ammo bug


Though it isn't coming until the end of February
Jan 30
 
Destiny has had a major bug in it since launch regarding heavy ammo. Often times you'll straight-up lose ammo due to a variety of situations, especially when you equip some of the game's best armor. It's a huge pain beca...




This Destiny guitar medley is pretty rockin'


I think we can all agree it has great music
Jan 28
 
One of the best soundtracks I listened to all year was easily Destiny. For all the problems that the game had, it was a joy to listen to, especially while in orbit waiting for a group or a connection. Guitarist Ryan Abu...




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


The Season Pass buck stops in March
Jan 26
 
Before Destiny was released, it was hyped into oblivion. Hundreds of thousands of fans bought into it, and by extension, purchased the Season Pass consisting of the first two expansions -- the second of which, House...




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...

Bungie's post-holiday Destiny update is the best one yet for Dark Below


Lots of fixes/improvements
Jan 09
 
Bungie is updating Destiny next week, and it looks to be a massive improvement for both existing raids. Now, instead of getting a random Exotic weapon from a chest that can be soloed in Crota's End, the Ir Yut boss will ...




Bungie's Holiday gift for Destiny players was...a random legendary weapon


Well, they told you it would be legendary
Jan 08
 
Before the end of 2014, Bungie tweeted out that players would obtain a "small, but legendary" gift for their Destiny accounts. Most people presumed that it would be a Santa hat consumable of some sort, like the Halloween...

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...




Destiny is the most fascinating game of 2014, mostly for negative reasons


People love to hate-play it
Dec 31
 
I have roughly seven days of playtime logged into Destiny. I have a level 31 Warlock, Titan, and Hunter who are all one piece away from level 32 -- the current cap. I've completed the new Crota's End raid roughly 20 times, 10...




Destiny patch ups base stats of Crota raid gear, adds a mission back


And some minor fixes
Dec 17
 
It's only a week out from Destiny's Dark Below expansion, and a small patch is upon us. The biggest change is definitely the buff to Crota raid gear, including the base light stat of +30 to all raid armor and 300 attack to al...




What do you think of raiding in Destiny?


Do you want matchmaking still? Is it fun?
Dec 15
 
If you follow Destiny but don't play it, you've probably heard this line a lot: "the raids are the best part." But that's basically all you hear, and then you move on because of all the other negative word of mouth. So I...




Review: Destiny: The Dark Below


The dank between
Dec 12
 
Having basically played the new Destiny expansion The Dark Below nonstop since launch, I've experienced everything it has to offer. That in itself is an issue, because although I have played more than the average pe...




You can carry over your progress to the Destiny sequel


Sequel? Yep
Dec 09
 
Many people have misunderstood the "$500 million" and "10 year plan" comments that Activision has made in the past in regards to Destiny. Those numbers encompass the entire franchise over time, not just one game. That plan in...




Completing the new questline in Destiny is complicated, here's how


More than just the three story missions
Dec 09
 
After booting up the new Destiny expansion The Dark Below this morning, I completed the three new story missions. Upon finishing the questline I saw that the weekly Heroic and Nightfall missions were blacked ou...




Destiny's latest patch notes are a disaster in terms of communication


Walter Peck was right: that's some shady shit!
Dec 04
 
Man, Bungie. Now instead of a collective of the community being angry at Destiny's glitches and issues, you have pissed pretty much everyone off right before the launch of the expansion. It's something that could have easily been avoided with better communication -- a lesson a lot of other people in the online/MMO space have learned with experience. So what went wrong?




Destiny 1.1 patches exotics, resource collection


It's good, but it needs more
Dec 02
 
After dragging its feet for a few months fixing guns that were basically broken at launch, Bungie has released one of the biggest updates yet for Destiny. A great deal of Exotic weapons have been overhauled and fixed, making ...




Destiny's new DLC is 'sexy' 'awesome' 'bacon' says horrible trailer


Also, just horrible and bad and not good
Nov 26
 
"Boom, daddy's home." "Call me when you level up, bro" "This is like a-Sasquatch-and-a-unicorn-had-a-baby exotic." Please stick to over serious trailers. I've made a point to ignore Destiny because I know it ain't ...




Destiny expansion video teases what players will find in The Dark Below


Hello my baby, hello my honey
Nov 21
 
We have known for a little while that the first expansion to Destiny would be called The Dark Below, and that it would add a healthy-sounding chunk of content. Bungie has now released a trailer showing off the moon excavatio...




Destiny now has a free trial promotion on the PS4


Free up 40GB
Nov 20
 
Destiny is still trucking. I'm currently sitting on a level 30 Warlock, 30 Titan, and 28 Hunter who has been stuck at 28 for over a month. I'm basically just running the Vault of Glass three times per week (my group has ...




Destiny's child: Work has started on Destiny 2


And expansions, of course
Nov 04

Coming December 9
Oct 29

If Bungie envisions Destiny as an MMO, it should start acting like it


Less catching up, more improvements
Oct 27
 
Destiny was a functional game at launch, but a number of design choices were made that left all of us scratching our heads. The Cryptarch system in 1.0 was horrible in that it allowed players to earn legendary engrams (r...




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


Moneyballs
Oct 16
 
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...




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


Check out this redditor's awesome lore posts
Oct 16
 
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...




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


After hotfix 1.0.2.2
Oct 15
 
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...




Here's why games can be the perfect social lubricant


One adventure in Destiny
Oct 10
 
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...




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


Watch the run below
Oct 09
 
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...

Downtime for a few hours
Oct 07
 
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...




Destiny's loot is now way less aggravating


The club is full of ballers and their pockets full grown
Oct 01
 
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...




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


Those two expansions are still coming
Sep 29
 
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 ...




Bungie is finally fixing the awful Cryptarch trolling in Destiny


Hey, you have a purple there? Blue would look better on you!
Sep 26
 
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...




There's a replacement for Destiny's Loot Cave


Another 'black hole' to shoot into for hours on end
Sep 26
 
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 ...
