I Play Destiny As A Warlock But Now Think I Should Be A Titan

I Play Destiny As A Warlock But Now Think I Should Be A Titan
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

As far back as I can remember, I, like Ray Liotta, have always wanted to be a Warlock. My daddy was a Warlock. His daddy was a Warlock. Warlockin’ is in my blood, I thought as I started up Destiny for the first time in 2014. When Destiny 2 was released three years later, I stuck to what I knew. I stayed a...

Sometimes It's Nice To Stop Mid-Game And Watch The Players Around You

Sometimes It's Nice To Stop Mid-Game And Watch The Players Around You
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

Yesterday I logged on to Destiny 2 for the first time in a very long while, intent on clearing out a chunk of the massive to-do list my character had accrued since this summer’s Season of Opulence update began. One of my many bounties and challenges involved killing a bunch of Fallen enemies on the game’s...

Destiny 2’s Latest Exploit Lets You Farm Materials By Doing Nothing

Destiny 2’s Latest Exploit Lets You Farm Materials By Doing Nothing

For the entire five-year span of Destiny’s existence as a series, players have been looking for ways to exploit it. Any old Destiny head will speak fondly of the days we had Loot Caves and cheesed bosses without shame. In the pantheon of cheap Destiny exploits, the latest Destiny 2 scheme for scoring loads of materials might take the cake for the amount of effort it requires, which is about...

Destiny Cosplayer Grinds Endlessly To Create Perfect Outfit

<i>Destiny </i>Cosplayer Grinds Endlessly To Create Perfect Outfit

Imagine if cosplay was more like Destiny. You find just the right fabric, walk to the cashier, pay your money...and open the bag to find a packet of nails.

Lucky it’s not, then, and Italian cosplayer Fred Props was able to actually make the stuff he wanted for this amazing Hunter outfit.

You should check out his Facebook page for more, because he’s also got some fantastic Halo and Skyrim...

Fancy toy company 3A are continuing to bring out some beautiful Destiny figures , with the latest being these very fluffy Titans.

Standing at 1/6 scale, just like 3A’s other Destiny efforts, these are probably a ways off (they were only just shown off at Wonder Festival...

Destiny 2's Newest DLC Embraces The Grind Even More

<i>Destiny 2</i>'s Newest DLC Embraces The Grind Even More

Today marks the release of the latest expansion for Destiny 2, a video game in which players travel through space trying to buy enough shaders to please Bobby Kotick. In the past, Destiny’s expansions have followed a certain familiar rhythm. The Black Armory is very different.

Rather than release individually priced expansions in Destiny 2's second year, developer Bungie is selling a $35...

Destiny Players' Best Guesses As To What A Mysterious Red Box Is

<i>Destiny</i> Players' Best Guesses As To What A Mysterious Red Box Is

If you're a Destiny player you may have run across one of these red boxes and never thought anything of it. But some creative players have taken notice and they sure do have some funny theories about what this seemingly random red box is.

This isn't the same as the Red Box farming area—one of the many replacements to the original Loot Cave that players have discovered—it's just an...

Destiny 2 Now Lets You Level Up Super Fast

<i>Destiny 2</i> Now Lets You Level Up Super Fast

If you, like me, haven’t had the time or patience to keep up with the Destiny 2 grind, here’s some good news on this day full of new Gambit modes: You can now get all the way to 640 power in just an hour or two, as long as you have the game’s year two Annual Pass.

Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Go to the Drifter. He’s hanging out in the Annex now, so use that fast travel point when you head to...

Destiny 2’s New Exotic Quest Brings Back One Of The Best Guns From Destiny 1

<i>Destiny 2</i>’s New Exotic Quest Brings Back One Of The Best Guns From <i>Destiny 1</i>

Destiny 2’s latest update has added a new exotic quest whose reward is a re-issue of one of the best guns from the first game: Outbreak Prime.

The new quest begins, like so many in Destiny do, with the hunt for a transponder. This one is located on Titan in a hidden room at the end of the Bad Neighbors heroic adventure. The transponder has six nodes, each with a different symbol that can only...

It's Nice To Have Destiny Back 

It's Nice To Have <i>Destiny</i> Back 

I, like many other hardcore Destiny players, have been lapsed for the past year but returned to the game yesterday for the launch of Forsaken. It’s a weird, wild, and comforting feeling, like slipping into a familiar pair of shoes. Or, more accurately, like getting on a familiar treadmill.

Some background: Between September 2014 and August 2017, I played roughly 600 hours of Destiny. Then came...

Destiny 2: Forsaken Ruined My Guardian's Outfit

<i>Destiny 2: Forsaken </i>Ruined My Guardian's Outfit

Destiny 2’s infusion system allowed players to easily power up their favorite gear to use throughout their adventure. Forsaken has tweaked how upgrading is handled; the change shakes up player’s arsenals and encourages experimentation, at the cost of making customization and identity-building more expensive (and grindy) than before.

I approach Destiny 2 casually, spacing out more hardcore...

New Theory About Destiny's Universe: Time Is A Circle

New Theory About <i>Destiny</i>'s Universe: Time Is A Circle

Just playing Destiny as the shooting-grind it can often amount to won't tip you off to some of its cooler details. You might never guess the connections to the Dark Souls series or the impacts of some of its other lore.

But TerraMantis is back with more things about Bungie's latest game that you might not have known about, and they're just as fascinating, particularly the note it...

The Top Five Loot Drops In Destiny 2: Forsaken

The Top Five Loot Drops In <i>Destiny 2: Forsaken</i>

There are a lot of cool weapons in Destiny, which is one of the reasons it’s such a popular game. Here are the top five drops in the latest expansion, which launched last week for PC and consoles.

These are all guns that Kirk and I have gotten in the past week, screencapped from our own Destiny accounts. We’re pretty proud of them.

Here we go:

1) Edge Transit

A spanking hot new leak has revealed the next Destiny 2 expansion, and it’s set in the place from which wizards come. Shadowkeep, which will take Destiny players back to the moon, will go live this fall.

Bungie plans to officially reveal Shadowkeep during a livestream on Thursday afternoon, but word has leaked out today thanks to dataminers digging through the PC files in today’s big Destiny 2...

Building Badass Destiny Hand Cannons

Building Badass <i>Destiny </i>Hand Cannons

Say what you will about Destiny, I think it's one of the best-looking games in years, with some very cool weapons just lying around for people to cruelly and unfairly pick up. My personal favourite is the hand cannon, because I am a Titan, and that's just how I like to get shit done.

Protheon, the boss of Destiny 2's Inverted Spire strike, is a big guy! A glitch earlier this week made him a lot bigger, though. Terrifyingly so.

Imagine seeing this immense unit appear out of nowhere. No thank you.

Like the tweet says, the issue has now been fixed, so anyone with a fear of over-sized Destiny bosses...

Someone Made A Destiny Sidescroller And It's Actually Pretty Fun

Someone Made A <i>Destiny</i> Sidescroller And It's Actually Pretty Fun

In honor of Bungie Day, Destiny fan Brenton Whitwell made a sidescroller version of the vast online shooter. In honor of Destiny, it has no story.

Whitwell’s sidescroller—which he called Project Tiger, after Destiny’s original codename—is short but surprisingly fun, letting you gun down some shanks and hop around a 2D version of the Cosmodrome. Props if you can beat Sepiks Prime without...

Destiny's Best Rocket Launcher Doesn't Need Advertising

<i>Destiny's</i> Best Rocket Launcher Doesn't Need Advertising

Destiny players sure love the Gjallarhorn—and it's created a hilarious culture around the weapon.

Mr. Fruit Gaming Channel pretends to be a Gjallarhorn salesman here, and in doing so, jabs at all the silly things surrounding the Gjallarhorn, and the people that use it, including:

How everyone wants the rocket launcherAnd yet, people don't know how to pronounce the name of the rocket...

Destiny’s PvP Matchmaking Has Been Weirder Than Ever

<em>Destiny</em>’s PvP Matchmaking Has Been Weirder Than Ever

Along with the new Taken King expansion , Bungie fine-tuned Destiny’s PvP matchmaking. It’s not yet clear whether that has been an improvement.

I’ve been playing more and more PvP lately. It’s a logical progression—the PvE stuff has reached a predictable tempo for me, so I’ve been getting ready for Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner to come back next week. Generally speaking, I’m having a great...

Bungie Is Nerfing Destiny 2's Best Guns, And Players Aren't Pleased

Bungie Is Nerfing <i>Destiny 2</i>'s Best Guns, And Players Aren't Pleased

There hasn’t been much to complain about in Destiny 2 recently, which is perhaps why Bungie decided to spice things up last night and announce plans to weaken some of the game’s most useful gear, including Whisper of the Worm and Sleeper Simulant. Players are... well... let’s take a look at the Destiny subreddit.

The chaos started when Bungie put up its weekly blog post last night, previewing...
