Review: How the Beta Made Me a Believer
With the Destiny Beta right on the horizon, here is an IGN reviewer’s take on how the Beta changed his view of Destiny for the better.
Bungie takes us on a tour of Destiny’s Blind Watch map on Mars. Watch as they show us the new location and dive into some strategy with a walking tour of the map with Bungie lead designer Lars Bakken. Lars explains that if you are at least 20 meters within your teammate who picks up the heavy ammo, you’ll also receive it. Watch a Titan take on a team that obliterates the competition in this first gameplay video of Mars: Blind Watch in the Crucible.
Bungie takes us on a tour of Destiny’s Rusted Lands map on Earth. Watch as they show us the new location and dive into some strategy for this Crucible location with a walking tour of the map with Bungie lead designer Lars Bakken. Unfortunately as confirmed by Lars, Control will be the only Crucible gametype available to play in the Beta. We also find out that there will be day/night variations in the Crucible maps. Warlock gameplay video of Destiny’s Rusted Lands crucible map. The map is located on Earth.

I’ve always been a sucker for a good montage and that’s why I’m sharing this awesome one made by XeroPain. It has great clips, good editng, and most importantly it’s fun. Impressively enough, it looks like the whole montage was created using the PS4 sharing feature. [yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zi3m399BosY’] Featured image courtesy of Ztemde
New Destiny B-Roll Footage
A new video of predominantly B-Roll gameplay has surfaced on the NeoGaf forums; thanks to MoreConsole for re-uploading it to his channel. In it you will see a Fallen Archon Priest (On the Moon!), a Vex Gate Lord, and even a barrel rolling Pike. Enjoy.

Battling the Sepiks Prime
The Fallen House of Devils in the Cosmodrome sustain their strength through a single, exalted Servitor known as Sepiks Prime. MoreConsole found where this keeper of souls resides and destroyed him. I really enjoyed watching this 20-minute Strike gameplay, hopefully you will too.
How to find a Hive Ogre
Searching all of the nooks and crannies in the Destiny Alpha can be not only time consuming, but it can also lead you into some dangerous territory. Some players have managed to stumble upon a Hive Ogre who hides in the depths of caves. While this is a tutorial on how to find the Hive Ogre it is not a tutorial on how to kill them.
