Feature: Needs a stool

Halo: Reach review

I'm bad at liking old shooters, because I struggle to see through the ways they've been surpassed. Modern games look better. They feel better. They have bumslides. They are generally obliged to develop their protagonists into something more than a number and a helmet. These are all problems for the nine-year-old Halo: Reach, but I've ultimately enjoyed myself despite them. There is wisdom in the…

Feature: No chief? no grief.

5 reasons why Reach is the best Halo game

I can’t help but love Halo. It’s one of the few things that lodged firmly enough in my teenage heart to build itself a permanent nest there, and it still comes and goes freely, even though the iron gate of age has barred so much else from getting in. Ever since 2001, when I saved to buy an OG Xbox purely for the sake of…

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…

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.…

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.…

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…

It's a busy day for Destiny 2, today launching a new paid expansion, Shadowkeep, as well as making the base game free-to-play. Oh, and the MMOFPS has switched from Battle.net to Steam too. Bungie now invite all aspiring wizard to play a surprisingly generous amount of the game for free, while folks who buy the expansion are called to invade a spooky fortress on the…

Bungie plan to have a new non-Destiny game out by 2025

Bungie are busy today with the launch of Destiny 2's free-to-play edition and the new expansion, Shadowkeep, but it's not all Destiny round Washington way. The gang who also made Halo and Marathon have said they plan to have something new-new and non-Destiny out by 2025. I thought that sounded at least 17 years away but I'm now told 2025 is in barely 5 years…

Pack your bags, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is shooting for the moon in a new launch trailer

Here, whatever happened to that wizard? The one wot came from the moon? Has anyone checked in on them, are they doing okay? Is the Shadowkeep their house? It's an awfully nice house, that. I think it's time we paid the wizard a visit. Mind, you never know with these space rascals, so I think I'll pack a heavier kit this time around. Y'know, just…

Destiny 2’s Annual Pass content is now free to all Forsaken owners

If you played Destiny 2 through the Forsaken expansion but didn't buy the Annual Pass after that, good news: you can new play all of the Pass's modes, raids, quests, and that for free. With an update last night, Bungie set the Annual Pass content free for all Forsaken owners. There's some good stuff in there. That can more than occupy you for the next…

One of Destiny 2’s best weapons is now way easier to get

One of Destiny 2's most coveted weapons, a deceptively small grenade launcher named The Mountaintop, today became a whole lot less frustrating to earn. The Mountaintop is one of the most powerful weapons in the MMOFPS at the moment across both PvE and PvP but it's locked behind a long PvP quest involving grinding out hundreds of grenade kills. No more! Bungie have massively cut…

Destiny 2 shaking up seasons, introducing a battle pass dealio

'Seasons' in Destiny 2 have so far meant whamming in new things for keepsies, building the game up with new modes and quests and things. Future seasons, Bungie now say, will be more ephemeral but perhaps more striking. As Bungie wind up to relaunch the MMOFPS with a free-to-play 'New Light' base edition on October 1st, they've opened up about how seasonal modes will come…
