Destiny 2: Shadowkeep review: Ghosts of the past

October 6, 2019

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is the first major expansion for the popular MMO shooter since developer Bungie’s split from Activision Blizzard in January. Though Bungie has maintained a parade of events and updates for the game throughout 2019, they set themselves a rather high bar to jump over with the new expansion. Here was what Bungie’s […]

From Runescape to Overwatch: The gaming holiday events you’ve got to get amongst

December 20, 2018

It’s December! Which means presents, sales, friends, family… aaand End of Year Events across a range of games! It’s always great – developers preparing content to see the year off with their player-base, usually around a winter-Christmas theme, content to be playable and fresh through until the next year… it’s almost a tradition of online games to […]

This year marks the second year that The Games Awards have celebrated an ‘Ongoing game’ award, beginning last year and being won by Overwatch, to recognise “A trend towards games that continue to entertain long after their release and continue to grow and evolve with their players”, as last years presented made out on stage.

Games Review: Destiny 2: Forsaken (PS4, 2018) is the expansion you’ve been waiting for

October 1, 2018

It’s been three weeks since Forsaken, the latest expansion for Destiny 2 launched, and in many ways I’m still struggling to wrap my head around the enormity of it. I’ve got a life outside of my work on this website — I have a side job, I have obligations to friends and family, I have […]

Here are your free games with PlayStation Plus for September

August 30, 2018

Sony’s had a few up-and-down months with their PlayStation Plus freebies. After the 2018 high water mark of Bloodborne, they’ve haven’t really had another title come through that lives up to the same lofty stature. Until now. September’s offerings bring both Destiny 2 and God of War 3 Remastered into the PlayStation Plus freebie fold. That’s […]

Destiny 2: Forsaken drops September 4, aims to turn this spaceship around

June 5, 2018

It’s been a rough first year for Destiny 2. Despite a strong launch, its first two expansion packs — Curse of Osiris and last month’s Warmind — mostly failed to impress the community. Bungie has some work to do if they want to restore player confidence and, if the trailer for the September expac, Forsaken, […]

Games Review: Destiny 2: Warmind (PS4, 2018): Better, but not by a lot

May 17, 2018

Destiny 2‘s first expansion, Curse of Osiris, wasn’t a complete disaster but it sure as hell wasn’t a good move either. Already losing players to battle royale juggernauts of PUBG and Fortnite, Osiris cost the game a lot of momentum after a strong launch. A good chunk of content and activities were placed behind Osiris’ paywall and […]

Games Review: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris (PS4, 2017): A pile of weird decisions

December 12, 2017

There’s almost no reason for you to play Destiny 2‘s first expansion, Curse of Osiris. I’ve tried to find a nicer way to frame the expansion’s futile attempts at justifying its own existence but there’s no getting around it. In a game as massive as Destiny 2, especially one that is designed to keep players coming back, […]

Video Games Review: Destiny 2 (PS4, 2017) files down many of the original’s rougher edges

September 19, 2017

Destiny was the first game I reviewed for this site, back when the games section was still called VideAU Games, an offshoot of The Iris‘ parent site, The AU Review. On launch, it was an ambitious but deeply flawed experiment in the MMO space, hyped beyond almost any other game in recent memory. It weathered two major […]

Blizzard unable to make up mind, renames Battle.net launcher again

August 15, 2017

You might remember a story we brought you last year about Blizzard Entertainment retiring the long-standing Battle.net name it used for its program launcher in favour of the more generic name, Blizzard Launcher. The story changed earlier this year when the Activision half of the Activision-Blizzard family declared it would be bringing the Destiny 2 beta […]

Destiny 2 running at 60fps in 4K is blowing our minds

August 15, 2017

Bungie has released a new trailer for the upcoming Destiny 2 PC open beta and, because they clearly know what the PC master race values most, it can be cranked all the way up to 60-frames-per-second 4K and enjoyed in all its high res glory.

Bungie is opening up about what’s changing in the Destiny 2 PC beta

August 14, 2017

Bungie haven’t exactly been quiet on the topic of their upcoming MMO shooter Destiny 2, but now that the game’s massive open beta is behind them, they’re beginning to open up about the things the beta data made them reconsider.

E3 2017: Hands On: Destiny 2 (PS4, 2017)

June 16, 2017

My overriding impression of Destiny 2, admittedly accrued from a period of only thirty minutes, is that it is very similar to the original Destiny. This assertion will be cause for either concern or elation depending on how much you already like Destiny.

Destiny is getting a sequel in 2017

February 11, 2016

It would appear that Bungie’s wildly popular shoot-aliens-with-your-friends-simulator Destiny is still set to receive a full and proper sequel, but it’s likely we won’t see it until 2017. Destiny publisher Activision confirmed the unnamed sequel today during their earnings report for their 2015 fiscal year.
