Destiny 2 review: No longer a guilty pleasure

Reviewed on Xbox One, copy supplied by publisher.  I feel bad for how much I enjoyed the first Destiny. Despite all the issues, I found enough nuggets of fun to last me an absurd amount of time. But Destiny 2 makes the original and all its expansions look like nuggets of shit. I suppose that’s good for a sequel, but it just seems to show how rocky the launch of Bungie’s franchise was, with a ‘cine...[Read More]

Destiny 2 on PC: Beta than console

I covered most of my general thoughts about the Destiny 2 beta in my analysis of the console beta, so I’ll keep most of my focus on how the game performs on PC.

The PS4 version can keep all its exclusives, and Xbox can keep its nothing of value; the PC is where the game runs smoothest and is the most visually stunning. I’m not ...[Read More]

Destiny 2’s Beta analysis – The good, the bad, and the beautiful

There wasn’t much to do in Destiny 2’s console beta, but there’s plenty to talk about. From PVE to PVP, let’s start with the good.

The Cabal are invading, we meet Gaul, and spoiler alert, we lose. Destiny 2’s plot is looking to be stron...[Read More]

Destiny 2’s beta should appeal to new fans

I’ll be the first to admit that the original Destiny left me with a resounding meh. Personally, I found the game to fall flat in terms of narrative and gameplay, but this was back in the early days of release. To say the least I was hesitant going into the Destiny 2 early access beta – which is now live on PlayStation 4 and will be live on Xbox One tomorrow ahead of the open console be...[Read More]
