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: Hectocotylus

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…

Destiny 2 starts Season Of Opulence with new co-op mode

Loot-hungry heroes today return to a wacky Emperor's gilded spacehulk as Destiny 2 has just started the third season of its Annual Pass content. The Season Of Opulence brings a new cooperative activity, the Menagerie, as well as a new raid, the Crown of Sorrow. These bring new guns and armour glittering with all the tacky flair that our Emperor pal so adores. The season…

Destiny 2 gets in The Last Word

A revered weapon returned in a big Destiny 2 update last night, the honking great hand cannon of legend, The Last Word. It may be the fancy headline feature, and quietly nudge parts of the story along too, but the update's also notable for a huge number of balance tweaks. Some abilities are toned down, some powered up, and some somehow made even worse, while…

Bungie look towards Destiny’s “bright future” post-Activision

While we still don't know what Bungie plan to do differently with Destiny now they've wrested their MMOFPS series out the clutches out Activision, franchise director Luke Smith has muttered cryptically about seeing "a bright future, with roots in a memorable past." He drops a few references that have some fans dreaming real big about what might come, but it's still all hazy. In the…

Destiny 2’s final Black Armory Forge opened early after puzzle stumped players

After what was meant to be an exciting community challenge to solve a puzzle and unlock a new part of Destiny 2 turned into a frustrating grind, Bungie caved and unlocked it last night. All players with the MMO-y FPS's Forsaken expansion and its further season pass can now make weapons in Bergusia Forge, which also brings quests for new toys. The puzzle of Niobe…

Destiny 2’s fourth Black Armory Forge has… not opened for business

The rediscovery and reignition of Destiny 2's fourth and final Black Armory Forge, the climax of the current season of paid content, has stalled because the puzzle to unlock it has players stumped. Bergusia Forge will let players craft new weapons but it'll only be opened once players--any players--solve a long and complex puzzle sequence involving ciphers, runes, invisible ink, translating French quotes, and a…

Rich McCormick’s 5 best games of 2018

I realise, at the end of 2018, that I’ve spent much of the year digging back over games released in 2017 and earlier. That’s in part because I’ve been subject to the demands of evil overlord Graham, but also because I’ve been trapped in the gravity well of monster timesinks like Destiny 2 and Divinity 2. When I did reach escape velocity, I cherished my…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Overwatch, Destiny 2 and Heroes Of The Storm

They must have been shipping eggnog, mistletoe, tinsel and other festive goodies to the Blizzard store in bulk, as they're kicking off seasonal events in multiple games today. Team FPS Overwatch and crossover MOBA Heroes Of The Storm are getting especially daft for the season, while Bungie are playing it a little more straight in shoot n' looter Destiny 2. Not that they haven't found…

They explained this…

Destiny 2: Forsaken will start including prerequisite expansions for free

Upgrading from plain old Destiny 2 to its latest expansion, Forsaken, is an expensive proposition, requiring players buy the FPS-RPG's first two expansions as well. Thankfully that will change next week, as Bungie have announced Forsaken will start including those two prerequisite expansions. To upgrade, you'll only ("only"!) need to pay the £35 for Forsaken, not an extra £17 for Curse Of Osiris and Warmind…

Has Destiny 2 been improved by its updates?

Humanity is a self-destructive species, and Destiny 2: Forsaken is credible evidence that we’re probably doomed. Fortunately, Forsaken is also the best update possible for Bungie’s MMO-lite shooter, adding fantastic new modes, new weapons, new missions, and new purpose to a game that had fallen flat a few months after launch even amongst its most hardcore fans.So there’s some good news, at least. To understand…
