Destiny 2 fashionistas are thrilled and shocked by next season’s premium looks

Eververse, the premiere Destiny 2 fashion house, last night revealed its spring collection of street wear for Season Of The Worthy. Reactions from fashionistas have been loud and charged. I adore this collection, welcoming the option for some more casual duds, even if the Warlock outfit in the middle is so ludicrously, wonderfully, decadently uncasual (a look I think works for the class). The big…

Destiny 2’s Season Of The Worthy is about stopping a giant spacegun from crashing into Earth

The next season of Destiny 2 starts next week, and Bungie today revealed more of what we'll be doing in the Season Of The Worthy and why. Turns out, the dregs of the Cabal who survived our latest drubbing have a spiteful last-ditch plan to straight-up crash a miles-long superweapon spaceship into Earth. That'll be a problem. So off we'll go, powering up the defences…

Destiny 2’s new seasons have “too much FOMO”, the game’s director concedes

The director of Destiny 2 has dropped another of his sporadic 4000-word thoughtdumps reflecting on the state of the MMOFPS, its successes, and its failures. One big problem Luke Smith acknowledges is that the latest seasons, starting with Season Of The Undying, create a disappointing "feeling of ephemeral private activities and rewards that go away" rather than the exciting "evolving world" they'd wanted. Bungie will…

Trials Of Osiris is coming to Destiny 2 next season, and it’s gonna be sweaty

Guardians, it's time to build your sweatiest, most shameful loadout: Trials Of Osiris is coming to Destiny 2 next season. The 3v3 PvP mode is returning from the first Destiny, once again challenging players to run a gauntlet of increasingly tough matchups to claim loot with serious bragging rights. The announcement came overnight after players finally completed the communal challenge to donate 9,777,777,700 Polarized Fractaline…

Oh hang on, Destiny 2’s best gun is getting buffed

While some players are griping about Destiny 2's weapon balance changes coming next season, Bungie have missed a trick by burying the big news: Fighting Lion, already the game's best gun, is getting buffed. Is it a huge buff? No. Is it a welcome buff? Absolutely. Alice, is Fighting Lion really Destiny's strongest gun? Look, I said best, not strongest. Hand on heart, I adore…

Destiny 2’s next season will shake up snipers and The Last Word

Bungie still haven't even revealed the name of the new Destiny 2 season starting in three weeks, let alone what's new in it, but they are opening up about what it'll do to the old meta. On top of the sword changes discussed a few weeks ago, they have big plans for weapons including sniper rifles, long-range fusion rifles, and the exotics Lord Of Wolves,…

Destiny 2 will stop making you get new armour every season to use new mods

Some much-needed changes are coming to Destiny 2's 'Armour 2.0' gear system next season to reduce grind, most notably (to me) opening up the seasonal mod slots to also accept armour mods from the previous season and the next. This means you won't need to replace your gear every season if you want to use the new mods. As someone who plays too much damn…

Destiny 2 started the Crimson Days event with yet more downtime and another rollback

For the second time in a fortnight, Destiny 2 was last night taken down for hours of emergency maintenance after accidentally wiping some players' spacewallets of Glimmer, Bright Dust, and other spacecurrencies and crafting materials. Turns out, the fix last time didn't fully hold. Bungie have once again rolled back characters to restore lost valuables, which means anything your spacemen did between 4:30pm and 6:30pm…

This Destiny 2 exploit is giving Warlocks endless flaming swords

Destiny 2 is having a pretty tough time with swords. Just as Bungie announce plans to rework bladed weapons entirely, a new problem emerges with swords of a more supernatural nature. Dawnblade-specced Warlocks have discovered a relatively simple exploit allowing them to burn through their super indefinitely, letting them spit flaming blades 'til the sun goes out. Brilliant, until you're facing four of them on…

Bungie are about to sharpen up Destiny 2’s swordfighting

Slash. Slash. Slash. I adore my collection of Destiny 2 swords, but they're not exactly complex beasts. For Honor, it ain't. It seems Bungie have also noticed this blunt angle with blades. The boffins over at sword headquarters have shared some sharp changes to blades arriving with Destiny's next season, promising a more pointed experience when bringing a blade to a gunfight.

Destiny 2’s Empyrean Foundation brings a quick way to farm Timelost weapons

The last two big additions on the calendar for Destiny 2's Season Of Dawn arrived today: a new final boss in The Sundial and, more practically, an easy way to farm squillions of the seasonal weapons and get your dream rolls. Saint-14 and Osiris today launched the Empyrean Restoration effort, asking Guardians to donate leftover Polarized Fractaline to help charge the Tower Obelisk so it…

Destiny 2 needed to roll back characters after emptying spacewallets

Last night's new Destiny 2 patch had the unintended consequence of deleting many players' hard-ground cash and upgrade materials, causing Bungie to take the MMOFPS offline for nine hours while they fixed it. Their solution was to roll characters back to their state before the patch, which has the unfortunate side-effect of wiping out everything players did between the patch launching and the emergency maintenance…

Destiny 2 players have solved a vast secret map made of thousands of parts

After five-and-a-half days, Destiny 2 players have solved the new mystery in the Corridors of Time and found new loot. This was a huge communal effort, with innumerable hundreds of players sharing thousands of map fragments to build a route through an alien time machine. The map is ludicrously huge. The effort is remarkable. I followed the newly-revealed route this morning and can tell you…

Game devs and players continue banding together to help the Australian bushfire crisis

Australia is still burning, but over the last couple of days they've actually had some rain! While this is a big help to certain areas, there are still 83 fires blazing around the country, and there's a lot of people and wildlife still in trouble. It's good job then that there are even more game devs, companies, and communities banding together to help out our…

Destiny 2 has a new mystery deep in the Corridors of Time

In the middle of a relatively straightforward season of straightforward content, Destiny 2 has quietly snuck in a big puzzle that has sent players exploring the Corridors of Time. We last went through there to rescue our old pal Saint-14 from his fated death, and now I'm starting to wonder if changing history was the best idea. (Of course it was: he's a great mate.)…

Game developers big and small are offering donations to aid Australia’s bushfire crisis

Bungie, Infinity Ward and Ubisoft are joining the list of developers donating money to help combat the bushfires devastating Australia. It's been announced that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare will be donating money from purchases of special "Outback Relief" packs, while Destiny 2 will get an exclusive t-shirt with profits going towards the country’s firefighting efforts and animal rescue and conservation.Ubisoft Australia aren't creating incentives…

Destiny 2 will fix Wish-Ender’s damage bug next week, and it’s about time

One of Destiny 2's oft-forgotten Exotic weapons, the Wish-Ender bow, has been unusually popular this entire season thanks to a bug. Since the Season Of Dawn started in December, Wish-Ender has been dealing almost triple its intended damage, making it deadlier than most weapons in many modes. After an odd silence, Bungie now say they'll fix it next week.Some players aren't best pleased because bows…

Destiny 2’s latest Exotic quest is unusually simple

Last night, Destiny 2 launched a quest for season pass holders to get a new Exotic-rarity gun, Devil's Ruin. It's weird. Many recent Exotic quests have involved grinding through a whole lot of busywork, and this mostly skips that. You can get Devil's Ruin in twenty minutes. After just one Sundial run then a short object hunt, your reward is a shiny new gun and…

But you do know one thing: they love to play those videogames. That’s enough to go on, surely. You can just type “gamer gifts” into the cybervoid and see what comes out! No. Do not do that.Here are the 8 worst…

Feature: The best games in the whole wide world

The 32 best PC games that demand to be played in ultrawide

There's an old saying in gaming monitor circles that once you've gone ultrawide, there's no going back. Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I'm inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It's one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your…
