Destiny 2’s Season Of Dawn has begun, returning to Mercury

Our old pal Osiris has once again done something daft in Destiny 2, so here we come to fix his time-travelling mess. Season Of Dawn, the second season since Shadowkeep, started today and it sends us to Mercury to deal with a giant weird Vex machine Osiris slapped together. He wanted to save his friend Saint-14 from the Infinite Forest, he accidentally gave the Cabal…

Destiny 2 begins the Vex Offensive’s Final Assault

After a six-week Blue Peter appeal asking heroes to send in any Vex parts they might have kicked off time-travelling robots, Destiny 2 has finished building a gadget to begin the Final Assault of the Vex Offensive. It's a very Guardian-y plan to stop a foe who exists in myriad timelines: just keep killing them until you've got them all. The reality is a little…

Destiny 2 finally nerfing Recluse and One-Eyed Mask next season

Two of Destiny 2's most clearly overpowered items, the Recluse submachine gun and the Titan class's One-Eyed Mask, will get long-overdue balance tweaks next season. As a player who owns and has used both: man, to hell with them. Recluse and OEM are powerful enough that in many situations you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't use them, they're frustrating to play against, and…

Feature: Forever and ever, amen

Steam Charts: Schteam Schmarts Edition

The results are in! The links between the longevity of Steam Charts and the decreases in violent crime, the improvement of sanitary water supplies, and sudden global drops in serious health issues, are no coincidence at all! To quote from the paper recently published in Nature, "Causal links have been shown connecting Rock Paper Shotgun's Steam Charts articles to a remarkably number of positive worldwide…

Feature: Dream Hearts

Steam Charts: Recycled Air Edition

There is nothing worse for a world-leading chartologist (PhD) like me than a Steam sale. All sense is lost, all decorum thrown to the wind, as the same few games come stamping all over everything like an uninvited six year old whose parents let him go to bed whenever he wants. And we're entering Sale Season, people. It's going to get stampy.

Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The best FPS games on PC

The best shooters endure. While other genres warp beyond recognition, there is something solid about the first-person shooter that makes it as dependable as a nice big AK-47. Maybe it’s the gung-ho simplicity - look down a barrel and pull the trigger. It's as fun to fire a double-barrelled shotgun from an early 90s FPS as the slick shotties of today. For that reason, this…

Destiny 2’s Altars Of Sorrow understands sometimes you’re an idiot who wants to spawncamp moonmonsters until it rains candy

Along with a new dungeon and Halloween event, yesterday's Destiny 2 update slipped in a surprise new open-world public activity on the Moon, named Altars Of Sorrow. It is a beautiful demonstration of how, sometimes, the saviours of humanity are so drunk on loot they'll idly blindfire into an enemy spawn point until the ground glitters with goodies. This is how Altars Of Sorrow goes.…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your…

Destiny 2 starts Halloween event and opens new dungeon today

A whole lot of haunting hits Destiny 2 today, with the start of its Halloween event and the launch of a new dungeon. Festival Of The Lost is for all players, sending us back along branches of the Infinite Forest to mash monsters and grab sweeties to swap for rewards. Destineers who own the Shadowkeep expansion get even spookier treats: a new dungeon diving into…

I am partially sorry for interrupting Destiny raids to take screenshots of this magnificent spacegarden

Dear fireteam, Last night we finished Destiny 2: Shadowkeep's Garden Of Salvation raid for the seventh time, and once again I held everyone up while I paused to take screenshots. I am sorry. Ish. Sorry-ish. As I told you when I paused beneath the vast paddlewheels churning up canals of liquid consciousness to take snaps of a cherry tree, it was definitely necessary for work.…

Steam Charts: Free Diving Edition

People, I face a dilemma. (Great cars, them Dilemmas. - Ed) This week Destiny 2 takes up an astonishing five out of ten spaces on the Charts. So what's a professional games journalist of 20 years experience to do? Write ten octopus facts in less detail but with more jokes, or six more involved entries perhaps better celebrating our cephalopod friends? I've opted for the…

Feature: Moon's still haunted.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep review

To be a Destiny player is to consume. To voraciously devour great wads of Content, like one of its giant inter-dimensional space worm gods gorging on a planetoid, and then, never sated, moving on to the next. The newest feast is Shadowkeep. It’s as beautifully crafted as ever. We get to eat the Moon! It looks stunning and it’s fun and weird and I love…

Destiny dancers pull serious lunar shapes in a new music video

Back when Destiny was only on consoles, I knew three things about it: random words are turned into grandiose proper nouns; a wizard came from the moon; and the spacemen love to dance. Now Destiny 2 has come to PC and won me over, I can say yes, I was entirely correct. I am delighted to see a new musical extravaganza from Husky Raid, a…

Destiny 2’s Season Of The Undying now giving time-travelling robots a kicking

Following the Shadowkeep expansion and free-to-play New Light edition launching on Tuesday, Destiny 2 properly kicked off its next season of live content with a new raid and a less-serious new cooperative mode on Saturday. Season Of The Undying is about those naughty milk-filled robots, the Vex and their vexatious plans. Swarms of them are now invading the Moon in fun public events, we take…

I adore Destiny 2: Shadowkeep’s spooky moon guns

Moon's haunted, you've likely heard, and in Destiny 2's Shadowkeep expansion we're sent to bust those ghosts. I adore the tools we wield to do that. A new set of Shadowkeep weapons salvages chunky vintage lunar hardware from the golden age of humanity and purifies it with magic rituals, leaving weapons bristling with magical talismans. These are the guns I need to pop phantoms and…

Destiny 2 dusts off servers after crashing into Moon

Though Destiny 2: Shadowkeep was the first time I'd been playing an MMO around expansion launch time, I knew what to expect last night: surprise; spectacle; excitement; confusion; discovery; server queues; connection troubles; servers going offline; waiting until the next day to play. Reader dear, it delivered on all counts. Following a string of disconnections, sign-in problems, and other datapipe wonk, Bungie took their MMOFPS…
