Bleeding Cool's Game Of The Year 2015: #17 – #1

One of my great pleasures in doing a lot of my game's writing is playing as many games as possible and handing out awards at the end of the year. Game of the Year is something I look forward to immensely, allowing me to look back on the last 12 months of games and really […]

Destiny Adds Purchasable Item That Levels You To 25

My appreciation and adoration for Destiny is well documented on the internet. My displeasure when micro-transactions also entered the game is also well covered as well though. …and things just got a little more worrisome. As pointed out by Reddit, you can now buy level 25 characters in the game. This was a feature of the […]

Destiny's Micro-Transactions Have Proven Very Popular

While I have made my reservations of the newly implemented Destiny micro-transactions known in the past, on top of the others in the community who are a little hesitant about the new practice, it seems that that isn't stopping people flocking to buy the new Silver currency. As reported by VentureBeat, the micro-transactions have proven to be […]

These Two Have Beaten King's Fall Oryx Alone

The Oryx fight at the end of the Destiny's King's Fall raid is a rather tough proposition for six players. It's designed specifically with six players in mind, and even then, a ton of groups fail the final fight. Well, The Legend Himself and A Death Card have put everyone to shame by doing it as a […]

Bungie Say They Aren't Planning On Selling Game Changing Micro-Transactions

I've been very cautious about the micro-transactions in Destiny. They went into effect yesterday, and as of right now, they are only for emotes, which are pretty fun. I do worry that this will leave the door open to more game changing for transactions in the future though. As reported by IGN, worryingly some players […]

Destiny Will Be Offering Micro-Transactions For Emotes Soon

I've long talked about my love for Destiny. As some one who has put 100s of hours into the game, I especially admire the work Bungie did with The Taken King. I'm genuinely excited about how the future will shape up. This new post on the Bungie website has left me concerned though. The post, once distilled, […]

How Will Bungie Keep Building The Threat In Destiny?

Destiny has a huge universe with more aliens to shoot than you can fathom. However, as the game has progressed, one thing I've found interesting is the new 'big bads' that have emerged. First we had the vague Darkness, then the Hive god Crota and now, Oryx, Crota's dad (so I guess dad-god?), has been and […]

This Destiny: The Taken King Soundtrack Trailer Promises Good Things

I've spent all morning playing through The Taken King, and I'l reserve my opinions until I can do a proper review. One thing that is worth a highlight though, is the expansion's soundtrack. It is different from 'vanilla' Destiny, but plays with new ideas in a musical sense. I'm really into it. As I said […]

The Taken King is upon us, and with that, those of us who play will be taking all of our guardians into the depths of the Orxy's Dreadnaught to take him on. I'm pretty excited, I must say. To help promote the game, Bungie have released this neat little trailer, which takes your stats and […]

Bungie Have A 'Twist' Coming To Their Taken King Raid

The Taken King is just two days away, and I'm very excited to see what Bungie have done with the game. The new story content, weapons and more will be likely keep Destiny players locked in for a while. One of the big new additions will undoubtedly be the new raid, King's Fall. Traditionally raids […]

Destiny: The Taken King Soundtrack Getting Released Next Week

The Destiny soundtrack from last year had moments of pure brilliance on it. I staunchly believe that it had some of the best work by Marty O'Donnell to date and may contain some of my favorite sci-fi music in years. Obviously, due to recent events, he isn't back to score The Taken King sadly. None […]

This Japanese Trailer For Destiny: The Taken King Is Pretty Intense

I've always been interested in seeing how Eastern Culture advertises Western games. I see how it works the other way round all the time, but catching glimpses of huge US titles hitting Japan shores is rarer. Well, if this Destiny: The Taken King advert is anything to go by, it can get pretty intense. I […]

Destiny's Raid Unlocks Three Days After Release

Alright, crisis adverted. There was a bit of a stink brewing on the internet about the new raid in Destiny launching after the Taken King's release. I said at the time, if it was only a week or two dely, then it would be fine, but as it turns out, it won't even be that […]
