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 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 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...

Bungie Already Tweaks Newest Destiny 2 Expansion To Reduce Grind

Bungie Already Tweaks Newest <i>Destiny 2</i> Expansion To Reduce Grind

A day after releasing their game’s new Black Armory expansion, the creators of Destiny 2 are lowering the power level requirement to participate in the new content’s marquee feature, a series of weapon-based activities called Lost Forges. They’re also acknowledging that the requirement reduction is small but the best they can do at the moment.

“It’s become clear that we made the initial Power...

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...

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

Destiny 2 Leak Reveals Shadowkeep Expansion, Set On The Moon

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...

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...

Destiny's Books of Sorrow Changed Its Lore For Good

Destiny's Books of Sorrow Changed Its Lore For Good

“Video game lore” seems like an oxymoron, at first. “Lore” suggests mystery, something known only to a few. Yet here we are, drowning in the stuff. So much of it taken for granted that it’s often a surprise when we look at a game’s lore and notice, like we did with Destiny five years ago, that some of it is really good.

In games, “lore” is the catch-all word we use for ancillary storytelling...

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...

Shit has finally gotten real in the Dreaming City, as Bungie has made good on its promises to regularly introduce cool new stuff to the latest Destiny 2 expansion, Forsaken.

Yesterday, the new Dreaming City location changed significantly, with Taken blights opening up all over the place and a couple of challenging...

Sources: <i>Destiny 2</i> Is Coming To Google Stadia, Getting Cross-Save

You’ll soon be able to transfer your Destiny 2 progress between multiple platforms: Xbox, PC, and the streaming service Google Stadia, on which the popular loot shooter will launch this fall. PlayStation 4 remains up in the air.

Right now, switching from console to PC for Destiny 2 means starting from scratch, as there’s no way to transfer your characters or progress. But this morning,...

Destiny 2's Branching Narrative Is Basic But Has A Lot Of Potential

<i>Destiny 2</i>'s Branching Narrative Is Basic But Has A Lot Of Potential

Back in 2014, when playing Destiny meant listening to a bored Peter Dinklage rattle off incoherent dialogue and meaningless proper nouns, it was hard to imagine that this game might one day do interesting things with narrative. Four and a half years later, here we are.

The new Allegiance quest line, which was added to Destiny 2 this week for Annual Pass owners, presents every player with a...

I Like It When The Numbers Get Big

I Like It When The Numbers Get Big
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

Video games are art. Video games can tell complex stories about the nature of the soul or bring players to tears with their honest belief in heroes. They also have numbers in them. Lots of numbers. And I am a big buffoon who loves when numbers go up.

I’ve been denying this simple fact for a long time. After all,...

Streamer Raises Almost $1 Million For Charity In Just Four Hours

GuardianCon, which began a few years back as a small Destiny con and has since grown into an all-weekend show held in July in Orlando, also runs a week-long charity stream. Which has just raised over $3 million for a children’s hospital in Memphis.

As Forbes report, the stream operated in four-hour blocks, with streamers, teams and even some companies taking part. Bungie, for example, raised...
