Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris review: Infinite forest with finite fun

Reviewed on Xbox One.  Curse of Osiris is the first of Destiny 2’s expansions, which are meant to expand the story, gameplay, crucible and other features. Does this DLC accomplish this? Technically, yes. Does it expand on the fun? Not really. The campaign is only a couple hours long and it’s bland. Most mission are just fighting through Vex, some with different aesthetics like the fidget spinner H...[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 opening mission was one of the best ever As Charlie said in his initial impressions, the opening mission, ‘Homecoming,’ quickly set up Destiny 2’s story. The Cabal are invading, we meet Gaul, and spoiler alert, we lose. Destiny 2’s plot is looking to be stron...[Read More]

Destiny’s hellish Halloween microtransactions

Destiny’s Halloween event, Festival of the Lost, has returned, with significantly more rewards, and significantly fewer of them are free. Haven’t heard of these rewards yet? Don’t worry, Bungie and Activision made a trailer showcasing all of the exclusive microtransactions!

Destiny: Rise of Iron – A comprehensive Light levelling guide

As Aaron mentioned in his review, Rise of Iron is light on content, but gets heavy on Light levels. The infusion system itself is unchanged since The Taken King’s April Update, but earning stronger gear slows to a crawl once you hit a certain point, which means reaching the maximum Light is a little more complicated. There are three distinct phases to Light Level increases, so here is how to effic...[Read More]

Destiny: Rise of Iron review: Return to the light

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. Bungie’s divisive online shooter, Destiny, has its fair share of critics, with even hardcore players solidly invested in the sci-fi epic often bemoaning the game’s shortcomings. This was no more apparent than the game’s very shaky first year, in which many of the mechanics were shoddy, and the general content was bland and u...[Read More]

Destiny: Rise of Iron details – the Rise of Thorn

New details about Destiny: Rise of Iron have been released, courtesy of Game Informer. From what’s been gathered so far, ROI won’t be the overhaul that The Taken King was last year, but will further smooth Destiny’s edges and get it to the standard that Bungie had always intended. ROI won’t include an increase to the base level cap of 40, but will significantly increase light level, with 400...[Read More]

Destiny’s new expansion is next-gen only

During last night’s livestream, Bungie officially revealed Rise of Iron, Destiny’s upcoming expansion. It will mark the beginning of the game’s third year, and will most likely be the last DLC before Destiny 2 releases next year. With it, we will of course be getting new things to do, new gear, and a significant light level increase. If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you’ll be happy to see that ...[Read More]

Is the Destiny update light at the end of the tunnel?

– James Orr Destiny’s new update adds FREE content for owners of Destiny: The Taken King. That’s right, after six months of waiting, players finally have new things to do. Unfortunately, it’s only a couple of hours of content and one new exotic, Zen Meteor, which is a Playstation exclusive. But its unique effect, ‘Dynamite with a Laser Beam,’ is a Queen reference, so bonus points for that. T...[Read More]

Stop comparing The Division and Destiny

-Aaron Birch Okay, some credentials. I’ve been playing Destiny since the Beta. In that time I’ve done pretty much everything there is to do, and earned everything there is to earn. I’ve beaten all the strikes, raids and challenge modes, have three fully levelled characters, have done my time in the Crucible, and have all the exotics. I’ve put a stupid amount of time into th...[Read More]

Bungie alters the course of Destiny’s fate

Destiny: Sparrow racing and future DLC

  – James Orr The ‘Sparrow Racing League’ (SRL) arrived with the latest Destiny update. It’s the first event since The Taken King launched that includes new gameplay, unlike the Halloween event, ‘Festival of the Lost’ which, while enjoyable, was entirely cosmetic. Many players, including myself, were excited at the introduction of Sparrow racing, particularly as it’s free. It’s a featur...[Read More]
