Destiny's box art could have been so much more

I shouldn't let box art bother me like this, but I'm unable to stop wondering what other covers were rejected in favor of this one for Destiny. It's pretty standard, which is what makes it disappointing -- there's so much pot...

Hey gang! Here's that darn Destructoid Show again! Hooray!

The news: Steve Ballmer's gonna retire from Microsoft, Elder Scrolls Online has a subscription fee as well as a cash shop, there's some talk about exchanging your current-gen games for next-gen ones, Destiny is very pretty, a whole bunch of games just got release dates, and Grand Theft Auto V was clearly made by perverted teenage boys who have just no respect for Yoga. Hmph.

Destiny looks so goddamn gorgeous

I still have a hard time believing Destiny is actually possible given the scope of the entire project. You're going to have multiple worlds to explore, so many guns to play with, tons of enemies to kill, and it all looks gor...

Bungie's designing Destiny to deal with trollish behavior

With Halo, Bungie introduced a lot of what defines console shooters. Two weapon slots, stable online play, as well as whole host of other less than desirable online behavior. Speaking with Edge, Bungie's Chris Butcher admits ...

In a great interview with IGN, Bungie co-founder Jason Jones came out of the woodwork to talk about a wide range of topics, from Marathon to the studio's upcoming Destiny. One of the more interesting pieces of information is ...

Bungie artists walk us through Destiny footage

Remember last week when Bungie released footage of Destiny that was essentially the same thing shown at E3 2013? That was pretty cool. Or, it would have been, according to some of you, had the dialogue between players not fe...

Love it or hate it, Halo's iconic pistol will be remembered where so many other firearms featured in first-person shooters will not. Speaking to IGN in a rare interview appearance, Bungie co-founder Jason Jones recounted how ...

Again, in high definition: Destiny's E3 walkthrough

I'm really starting to come around to Destiny. While this is more or less the walkthrough we saw back at E3, seeing it in HD as opposed to on a live stream while mentally and physically exhausted has done wonders for my anti...

I'm officially getting excited for Bungie's Destiny
by Steven Hansen

We saw Destiny running, live, on multiple PlayStation 4's, and I'm suddenly a bit more into the whole ordeal. We began on a run down Earth in the same spot last night's Sony press conference featured. In the more intimate, closed-doors setting we got to take a bit more time to stop and smell the roses, which turned out to be just what I needed.

The game is ridiculously pretty. We were shown off the dynamic lighting system which will give areas different feels based on time of day, helping to sell the world as a livable, believable place. Every blade of browned grass rustled in the wind as the trees bent and creaked against the breeze. Both on the large and small scale, the game world is picturesque and alive.

After an amazing, third-person dance taunt, the team of heroes headed inside and I was sad to say goodbye to the sweeping vista -- until they walked into the beautifully realized indoor environments.

The Destiny debut we've been waiting for

Bungie took its sweet time before revealing the first gameplay of Destiny tonight during Sony's E3 press conference. Was it worth the wait? That remains to be seen, but I like what was shown. It came across as a mix of Borde...

Let's get straight to the news that's been a long time coming for Bungie's open-world shooter Destiny: we'll finally see what it looks like -- what it really looks like -- on June 10, 2013. Thank goodness for that! Specifica...

Bungie's Destiny to feature 'monetization' shenanigans

Monetization. It's an ugly word, especially to those aware of its implications. According to an Activision employee resume, it's also coming to Bungie's upcoming shooter, Destiny. You may be feeling a cold shudder running dow...

Halo, Modern Warfare 2, & Skyrim brought together

Musician Sarah Schachner did a little arrangement where she covered the Halo, Modern Warfare 2, and Skyrim themes back-to-back. The covers sound wonderful, and it's all even more impressive once you see that Sarah played every instrument herself. [Via The Awesomer]
