Destiny 2: Forsaken may be too confusing to bother re-engaging with

If you were wondering what you've missed in Destiny, hardcore game fan and apparent self-appointed historian of all things Destiny, Byf, offers this gargantuan update.

Destiny was a fantastic game from Bungie, the folks who originally brought us Halo. After a few years of some really engrossing game play in a hybrid FPS/RPG type universe, they released Destiny 2. Everyone stopped playing. Now, Bungie is trying to resurrect their once amazingly popular franchise with Destiny 2: Forsaken, aptly named.

I have tried. I can not yet re-engage. They maybe fixed a lot of the early on complaints with game mechanics, physics and what not -- but Destiny is still chock-full confusing, poorly told story telling.

Destiny 2 is Destiny too!

Bungie's second installment in their Destiny series is a fun, vastly improved, next chapter in a video game we're well familiar with. Read the rest

Destiny's Sparrow Racing League is back

Bungie's massive online FPS/RPG Destiny has brought back it's holiday celebration, featuring one of its most fun add-ons: Sparrow Racing.

Destiny's guardians spend 11 months a year mowing down invaders from outer-space, and farming loot. For a few weeks, in December, Destiny turns into a crazy fast racing game, ala Wipeout XL.

Bungie also added a few new features, like scored and upgraded strikes, and brought back one of the favorite guns in the game, the exotic sniper rifle Icebreaker. I loved Icebreaker. Read the rest

Destiny: Rise of Iron launches tomorrow

September 20th, at 2amPST, Bungie's year three update for Destiny, their massively multiplayer FPS, Rise of Iron goes live!

Sporting some of the best FPS game play ever, and a huge online following, Destiny is seeing some major changes in Year 3. Private match-making in custom games is probably the most anticipated, and longly awaited community feature. Destiny: Rise of Iron appears to become a fantastic tournament platform!

A new story mode focusing on the Iron Lords, a legendary band of near extinct Guardians will provide ample opportunity for Bungie to confuse the incredibly disjointed backstory even more, but will likely be AWESOME. It appears Destiny is headed back to a Close-Quaters-Combat meta and the new adventures and weapons will encourage that.

Fans are super excited! There've been lots of community made videos made, eagerly anticipating the launch, but none as much fun as "Rise Up!" by Crucible Radio's Bones. If you play Destiny, the Crucible Radio podcast is a must!
