Armchair psychology: Why we keep playing bad games

“Destiny is the worst game I can't stop playing” I keep hearing this, or variations of it again and again from my friends, all of whom seem unable to escape the jaws of a game they all claim to hate. And you know ...

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

"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

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...

Here's how to surf on your Sparrow vehicle in Destiny

As a result of "button spamming" YouTube user Freke Out has found a new glitch in Destiny -- the good kind. Apparently if you use a d-pad action (such as dance or sit) at the exact moment before you board your Sparrow, ...

Destiny's child: Work has started on Destiny 2

Activision Blizzard is making all sorts of money in its latest financial quarter. This is due in large part to the success of Destiny, which has 9.5 million "registered users," the average of which is playing the game for thr...

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

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 (randomized items) only to consistently find out they were rares.

There were bounties that were active for playlists that weren't even available to play. The list goes on -- these are things that Bungie possibly didn't have time to test as it was rushed out of the door by Activision to ship on time.

All of Destiny's patches so far haven't been actual improvements to the game -- they've been backpedaling "we didn't intend for this to happen" or "oops this was bugged" fixes. There have been no meaningful quality of life changes like an "Orbit to Tower" function, more bank space, a better user interface, or anything that would make the game more enjoyable.

Bungie needs to start making actual improvements to the game -- before the DLC in December and before people need to pay for it.

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

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

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

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...

Bungie's 1.0.2 patch for Destiny is a good start, but the game has a long road ahead of it

As you may have heard, Destiny just dropped a rather big patch recently. It increases the quality of loot in general for a Strike playlist, and allows players to earn better gear from random "engram" drops. Before the ch...

Destiny's loot is now way less aggravating

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...
