Destiny 2 is skipping Trials of the Nine for two weeks

If you're the type of Destiny 2 player who gets way into Trials of the Nine, it's time for me to play my part as the bearer of bad news. The PvP event will be absent from the game this weekend and next, and the earliest we'll be able to par...

Bungie has a fix for Destiny 2 social space crashes

Crashing in a loot-driven game stings, especially if it occurs as you're en route to collect rewards. You've put in the work and you need that sweet dopamine release, stat! Now's not the time for bugs. Some Destiny 2 players have had issues...

Destiny 2's prestige raid pushed to next week

Bungie intended for Tuesday to mark the release of both the Iron Banner PvP event and the prestige version of the Leviathan raid, but only the former is happening tomorrow. What's to blame? An exploit. The studio only described the exploit ...

Destiny 2's Iron Banner and prestige raid are incoming

The Iron Banner is set to debut in Destiny 2 next week, but much like the sequel's PvP in general, the Crucible event won't follow the same format as before. For starters, it's sticking with the game's four-vs.-four structure, and "your fig...

Welp, Dead Orbit won Destiny 2's first Faction Rally

Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, or New Monarchy -- who'd you pick? I didn't have strong feelings about any of Destiny 2's factions, so I went with Dead Orbit on a whim. It just felt right at the time. Also, crucially, Arach Jalaal was just too...

Destiny 2 will have yet another outage next week

Destiny 2 has been experiencing a lot of outages recently during prime time European periods, most of which have offered small bug fixes and no major changes for the game. Yet another one is scheduled for Monday too, so be sure to weigh you...

Tip: Join a clan in Destiny 2, even if you mostly play alone

I've seen many folks go clan-less in Destiny 1, and that was perfectly fine. Bungie didn't really have any incentives to join one, and the system itself wasn't even in-game -- but rather, relegated to the unwieldy Bungie.net website. The si...

Ears up, Guardian: it's a special Destiny 2 Podtoid episode

Bungie's loved/hated shared world shooter series just saw its second full release with Destiny 2. How'd it turn out? Jordan Devore, Darren Nakamura, and Ray Porreca gathered around the broken fountain on The Farm to talk about luminous engr...

Destiny Leviathan raid is golden, in more ways than one

[Update: Completed on 9/15! I really enjoyed the last fight and the raid as a whole. It'll probably take a while to marinate as I go for repeated runs but for now, it's one of my favorites.] Bungie has a pretty great track record when it co...

Destiny 2's Leviathan raid has a Power range of 260 to 280

Prior to any of the expansions launching for Destiny, I gave the game an hour or so before I moved on, never to return. This weekend, I spent most of my waking hours playing Destiny 2. I dig it. And now here I am, happily reading up on and ...

Review: Destiny 2

Bungie kind of promised the world when it gave us the original Destiny. The hype was astronomical, and the first preview event didn't even have a playable build. What we actually ended up getting was a very strong shooter with a weak RPG ba...

Video Review: Destiny 2

A little over a month ago I stumbled my way through the front door of Destructoid, knocking things over as I went, writing about video game news, with an original goal to write various tips and guides on current games. But then instead I en...

Very Quick Tips for Destiny 2

Last night my Destiny 2 Warlock hit Power Level 268, and I finished the Nightfall -- so it's safe to say I've experienced much of what the game has to offer, and at this point, I've started to work on my second and third characters Her...

Destiny 2's first month of events mapped out

One of Destiny's strengths is its ability to highlight and modify certain activities so playing the same content for the umpteenth time isn't quite as stale as one might expect. Destiny 2 is looking no different in that regard, and Bungie h...

Bungie stepped up its emote game for Destiny 2

One of the most shared elements of the original Destiny had to be the emote system, which took off over time and eventually added in actions and dances that aped popular culture, from "Thriller" to "Hotline Bling." Destiny 2 is ki...

The Japanese Destiny 2 trailer really understands the game

In all my time playing the first Destiny, the one thing I took away from the game is that people love their dance emotes. The lore or gunplay or even level design doesn't matter; you just have to dance at every possible chance. If Destiny 2...

Review in Progress: Destiny 2

Destiny was an odd, money-making beast. It was arguably one of the biggest and most polarizing games in recent memory, with the negative side of the coin winning out vocally -- and I was somewhere in the middle. I mean, I cleared every raid...

Destiny 2's first raid will go live a week after its launch

There's usually just one thing on hardcore Destiny player's minds at any given time -- "when's raid?" Well thankfully Bungie has given us the answer as we head into its launch next Wednesday. In addition to noting that the Nightfall challen...

You can go make your Destiny 2 clan

It's time to get the old Destiny gang back together. Ahead of Destiny 2's console launch on September 6, Bungie has opened clan creation and searching on its website. You can pick out your clan name, shorthand name, motto, and a "phrase or ...

Destiny 2's launch trailer has arrived a little bit early

Nevermind the fact that Destiny 2 is two weeks (and change) away from a proper release. The folks at Activision who were in charge of vanguarding this trailer had itchy trigger fingers. As such, we have Destiny 2's launch trailer well...
