The Reef

Published on: Aug 26, 2014 @ 15:58 This article may contain spoilers! Update – Reef cutscene: The Reef, in the Asteroid Belt, isn’t a place often discussed by Bungie. The Collapse, caused by the Darkness, left The Reef to deteriorate in the way that it has. We know it’s now shattered and torn apart, filled with debris from ships and ruined structures. This may be another small third-person space, similar to the tower, a sort of social hub. The Reef is home to the Awoken, who fled there after the Collapse. It’s been speculated that Humans fled there during the Collapse, and the Darkness

No Custom Games at Launch?

It doesn’t appear that we’ll be able to have custom matches in Destiny at launch, which worries a lot of people. In a recent interview, Eric Osborne was asked, Will we see more unique modes like races or oddball? EO: “It’s definitely something our team is interested in. Step one for us was to get a really competent game up and running, making sure it was meeting our expectations and all the modes players demand from their shooters. In the future who knows, we’ll be having a lot of fun and there’s plenty of opportunity for us to do new stuff.”

Xûr, Agent of the Nine

Published on: Jul 26, 2014 @ 10:12 Xûr, Agent of the Nine is an ally that can only be described as a black market figure, selling extremely rare and useful items. As we can see from many of the Exotic quality pieces of equipment, Xûr plays an important role in acquiring these items. While some Exotics are earned randomly in PvE/PvP, and others through their respective Exotic Bounty, the only way we can purchase Exotics is through Xûr when he arrives in the Tower (Fri-Sun). We have an in-depth text/video review for all the Exotic weapons! Xûr sells objects of legendary power. He accepts his own currency, in

Destiny Focus: The Halo Influence

You can take the Bungie out of Halo, but you’ll never take the Halo out of Bungie. The Halo series will always be one of Bungie’s most crowning achievements regardless of future successes. This was a group of games that not only revolutionized an entire game genre, but also provided us with a science-fiction epic that spanned all manners of media, even coming within a fraction of finally being recognized on the big screen. But although Halo physically lives on in the grateful grasp of 343 industries, its legacy is something that will forever remain encased within the walls of

Destiny Focus: Tricks of the Trade

By now, you may have sampled much of what the Destiny Beta has to offer. Old Russia is no longer an uncharted, desolate wasteland, rather it’s your own personal stomping ground in the never-ending quest to find the best loot that the game has to offer. You’ve killed Riksis the Devil Archon, Sepiks Prime and the Devil Walker several times over, whilst dancing over their defeated corpses without hesitation. You’ve been killed after driving a Shrike off a cliff, been vaporised by an Ogre’s face-blast and even torn asunder by a Hallowed Knight, and inevitably, you’ve been left wanting more.

Destiny Focus: You Beta Believe It

Perhaps it was inevitable that the Destiny Beta would play havoc with the PlayStation Network. After all, a stiff breeze is usually enough to take down PSN for an entire afternoon. But after much persistence and a bit of luck, I made it through the storm and came out on the other side in one piece, my Beta now downloading at a slow but bearable pace. And as the concept art showcase that accompanied the download faded to black, the Destiny Beta had a last breathed into life, my nine day holiday in the clutches of Bungie’s shared-world shooter now

Destiny Focus: The Alpha

The Destiny alpha disappeared almost as quickly as it had arrived. After three days caught in the clutch of competitive multiplayer, the cooperative campaign and simply wandering the wastes aimlessly, I was ready for more, with the prospect of waiting for the beta seeming absolutely torturous. But as the wrought iron doors of Old Russia closed once again, our collective time had ended, the alpha now a mere memory that served only to tell us what we already knew; that Destiny, is something special. The Multiplayer For three days, I immersed myself completely in Bungie’s technologically decadent universe, not once
