Destiny is one of the best Vita Remote Play games to date

Destiny is out tomorrow, but the servers are live today for people who got their copy early or are reviewing the game. I've had a chance to play quite a bit already (more on that tomorrow), but I wanted to touch on one thing ...

Xbox pokes fun at Activision with fake Destiny ad

Microsoft loves promoting Bungie games, you know. Unfortunately, that ship has sort of sailed. Activision and the erstwhile Halo studio are now cozying up with Sony, and the folks at Xbox UK seem to be handling the situation ...

Last-gen Destiny players can upgrade to current-gen for free this year

If you're planning to buy Destiny on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 and think you might migrate to Xbox One or PlayStation 4 eventually, consider going for a digital copy (I know) -- you'll be able to upgrade to the current-genera...

Destiny and Red Bull are teaming up for some unclear reason

"Brand synergy!" the executive shouted, confident that his enthusiasm would rally his employees. "Forward-thinking leverage!" he followed up, unsure about the mumbo jumbo coming out of his mouth, but hoping his tone would ins...

Like laughing at bad things? Watch this live-action Destiny trailer

Maybe with twelve tequilas and friends around I could laugh at this. As it stands, sitting home alone and horribly sober, I just kind of cringed at every embarrassing one liner (which is all of the dialogue, actually) and paused the video before it was halfway finished.  Share my pain.

Destiny fans create their own tools for endgame raid matchmaking

Destiny is going to have MMO-like raids. What do I mean by that? Well, you're going to need to manually find six people to access some endgame content, which will deliver the biggest challenge the game has to offer. As s...

Get a tour of the exclusive PlayStation Destiny PVP map

Last week Bungie put up a video explaining exactly what was exclusive in the PS4 version of Destiny. It's basically a PVP map, a Strike map, and some weapons and outfits that will likely be outdated after a few hours of play...

Pre-order Destiny at the Microsoft store, get a $10 gift card

Destiny is nearly upon us. Whether the hype was warranted is completely up in the air (no one has a copy yet as servers are not live), but if you're taking the plunge now regardless, you have another option -- the Microsoft S...

See everything exclusive to PlayStation for Destiny in one video

Destiny's loot will be bind-on-pickup, can't be traded

Destiny prompts you to become legend through lots of moon shooting

Conventional wisdom says that you put out a launch trailer alongside the release of a videogame. Activision and Bungie don't care for your norms and will do it whenever the hell they feel like it. That's why, despite being a...

Rocket No. 9, take off to the planet Venus...in Destiny

This Destiny trailer makes me want to get my ass to Mars

In Destiny, the tops of long-lost skyscrapers poke through the surface of Mars which means, presumably, we'll have to work our way down through them to reach whatever lurks below. I'm not expecting to find anything good down...

This Destiny player is better than everyone else

What's it look like when one player rises to the top of all others during a short beta that introduces the world to a game? That's a very nuanced question you ask, but this montage highlights some of the top-ranked Destiny player's moments during competitive multiplayer. Something tells me this isn't the first shooter that he's tried his hand at.

This is way too much to pay for the Destiny: Ghost Edition

Destiny's six-person raids sound like fun

Look, the word MMO is thrown around a lot these days as a buzzword, sometimes in the case of Destiny. Although it has MMO-like features, I wouldn't consider six-person squad-based shooter with a hub world an MMO. Similar to&n...

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 o...
