Destiny's development team just got a little bigger

It takes a lot to make a stew. Bungie, the main developer behind Destiny, hasn't been the only developer behind Destiny for a while now. Last year, High Moon Studios (the team who made Transformers) joined the effort. Now, a third...   read

Destiny's two new racing maps are more enjoyable than I expected

I'm not the Destiny dude around here. That'd be Chris or Darren. But I was the one at PSX over the weekend, so I am control of the #content around here and decided I was gonna try Destiny's two new Sparrow Racing League maps. Did I overcome...   read

Destiny's December event looks bigger than last year's

In December of 2015, Bungie shook its loot-shooter Destiny up with Sparrow Racing League (SRL), a three-week event that had Guardians hanging up their weapons for a bit to careen their hoverbikes down a couple of treacherous courses. It was...   read

Destiny's Aksis challenge, for once, feels like an actual challenge

That's all she wrote for Destiny's Wrath of the Machine raid challenges, at least for now. All that's on the docket going forward until Destiny 2 (?) is Vosik and Aksis, the latter of which debuted this week. The kicker is that it's ac...   read

If you run Destiny's Wrath of the Machine on Hard, you might as well do the Vosik challenge

Bungie kind of snuck up on us with the challenge mode for Wrath of the Machine (it's still running for King's Fall by the way, if you care, like clockwork), a mystery task that you can complete on normal or hard for extra rewards. Well, it ...   read

Destiny sure knows how to celebrate Halloween

When it comes to Destiny, I'm mostly stuck listening and nodding politely in response to words and phrases that, as a non-player, hold no meaning. But I can appreciate any video game that embraces the Halloween spirit, even something as ma...   read

Destiny's Wrath of the Machine hard mode doesn't change enough, but that's okay

Hard mode for Destiny's latest raid dropped this week. Some of you haven't finished normal yet (I'm a maniac, so I did my 15th clear this week). And that's okay! Because you'll have plenty of time to do it given that there doesn't seem to b...   read

Hard mode dated for Destiny: Rise of Iron's new raid

Having made my way through Destiny's Wrath of the Machine raid nine times so far (and completed the Exotic questline), I'm still loving it. There's several different ways to approach each fight, and discovering new strategies with my raid c...   read

Destiny's Trials of Osiris returns today, but only on PS4 and Xbox One

Destiny just got a brand new expansion, and of course, more events are on the way. The Trials of Osiris PVP mode that's been running since May of 2015 is back, and although we aren't sure what map it's going to feature (it's just one s...   read

Wrath of the Machine is the best Destiny raid outside of King's Fall

Raiding is my favorite part of Destiny. It's not even close. While some folks prefer getting friends together and casually chilling with Strikes or Patrols once a week, I'm firmly in the progression camp. It's partially due to my MMO upbrin...   read

People beat Destiny's new raid in two hours because of course they did

If game developers create it, it will be conquered: Destiny's new raid Wrath of the Machine has been finished by Clan Redeem two hours after it launched. Wrath of the Machine launched today at 1PM Eastern today, and at 3PM it became ol...   read

Review: Destiny: Rise of Iron

In the several days since Destiny: Rise of Iron launched, I've basically been doing nothing but play it. While it's meant to last casual players weeks on end, my raid group and I chewed through, and although we still have some SIVA Clu...   read

Review in Progress: Destiny: Rise of Iron

Four expansions later, Destiny is a better game than it was at launch. I fell short of claiming "it's come a long way," because a lot of the core issues with Bungie's philosophy have persisted throughout the game's now two-year hi...   read

Kicks and queues: Destiny's Rise of Iron expansion is having a bumpy rollout

Bungie seems to be planning a big pre-Destiny expansion ARG event

This past week streamer Mr_ Amplified discovered something odd in Destiny, and what seems to be a new ARG game. Earning the buff called "Splendor 2.6," a glittery aura appeared above their avatar's head -- an alteration that can't be r...   read

Here's a trailer for Destiny's Rise of Iron, out next week

Before there were Guardians, there were Iron Lords. I'm more of an Irony Lord myself, but I appreciate any culture that keeps cute huskies around. Destiny: Rise of Iron is out next week, September 20, and brings with it, "a new cinematic s...   read

Last-gen Destiny players are getting their final Trials of Osiris event this weekend

In case you haven't heard, Bungie is completely phasing out the old generations of Destiny -- that is to say, the PS3 and Xbox 360 editions. While they'll still technically be playable, they won't be updated, won't get new content, and...   read

Destiny: Rise of Iron's raid won't be as technical as King's Fall

Destiny players have gone through three raids now. Crota's End is generally considered the weakest, but there's ongoing debate about which is better between the first raid, Vault of Glass, and the most recent one, King's Fall. One thing the...   read

Destiny: Rise of Iron is shaking up the previously lame Relic game

Relics, an item slot added in the Destiny: Taken King phase, were a nuisance. Mainly they were just things that held players back from reaching the level cap of 320 back before the April update, with nominal stats and bonuses that were...   read

After this week, the previous generation versions of Destiny will not be updated

It's a small update (mostly dealing with bugs), but 2.3.1.0 is the last patch that PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will get for Destiny. As previously announced, Bungie notes that the current-gen versions (PS4, Xbox One) are the only viable options...   read
