New Destiny content update drops next month

At long last, Destiny is getting some new content. It's just too bad it's coming at a time when practically the entire player base has abandoned the shooter for that hot new Tom Clancy jam. "As promised," Bungie says, the update "will ...

Bungie admits drop rate for Destiny's new event item is too low

Destiny
When Bungie announced the Crimson Days event for Destiny, my heart sunk a bit. I mean the notion is nice, but really, we all know that the Tower makeover is basically just an excuse to sell more microtransactions.

Based on math, without challenges, it would take 'a year of raiding' to nearly get 320 in Destiny

A redditor decided to crunch some numbers related to gear in Destiny, and the results are pretty hilarious. For those who aren't aware, the max "level" (Light level) in Destiny right now is 320. According to him, if you don't...

Bungie's approach to Destiny in a nutshell

Destiny has undergone a lot of changes since its inception -- some for the better, but a lot of it was altered for the worse in "Year 2" of the game. For starters, there's a massive gap between leveling weapons and armor (to the point where...
