The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Six: Tackling the Strike's Co-Op Difficulty Spike

Got your back

All the way back in the hazy days of the Destiny alpha, complaints about the download's co-op based Strike mission were rife. Many argued that it was too hard compared to the other co-op activities, while others simply put forward the opinion that the big boss enemies of this hectic challenge were far too beefy, and that their total...

We would never have guessed

Tomorrow marks the last full day of the Destiny beta, and what a huge success it appears to have been.

How Do You Get in the Destiny Beta on PS4? You Don't Need a Pre-Order Anymore

Everyone's invited

Even if you haven’t spent the past week or so playing the Destiny beta, there’s a good chance that you’re probably a little sick of hearing about it.

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Five: Wasting Inordinate Amounts of Time at the Tower

The good life

When you really stop and think about it, Destiny's hub location dubbed the Tower is a beautiful thing. In a game where essentially all you do is shoot things in the head, the Tower provides a resting place where you can enjoy some downtime between stints of slaughter. You can introduce yourself to other players, buy new equipment,...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Three: The Crucible Presents Push Square vs. The World

We honestly weren't that bad

If there's anything that a modern game needs, it's a competitive multiplayer mode that's usually shoehorned into a single player title and treated like a second class component. Fortunately, Bungie is somewhat adept at crafting a solid online shooter, and it's clear that the studio's experience bleeds into Destiny's...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day Two: The Exploration of Old Russia

And not a stereotype in sight

For many, Destiny's biggest draw is its promise that you can explore huge, open areas with your buddies – or even complete strangers – as you scavenge the land for some lovely new loot. And I must admit, this is also the much hyped shooter's key component for me, as well. While I'm fairly confident that the story...

The PS4 Destiny Diaries - Day One: Why Wouldn't You Want to Be a Robot?

Harder, better, faster, stronger

In the back of our minds, we all knew that it would happen. It always does. Once again, we felt the PlayStation Network creak under the weight of thousands of users trying to access the digital store and download the Destiny Beta at roughly the same time. Even Bungie's website felt the crushing demand of eager...

So, Does Destiny Look Any Good on the PS3?

Judge for yourself

While the PlayStation 3 may command a much larger install base than the PlayStation 4, there’s no doubt that gaming mindshare has switched to Sony’s next-gen machine. As such, it’s pretty easy to forget that Destiny is even releasing on the Japanese giant’s age-old hardware in the first place – let alone that you can...

Hooah! Call of Duty Reloads with Explosive PS4, PS3, and Vita Discounts

Oscar mike

Call of Duty is a series that rarely ever goes on sale, so you should thank the war economy for these savings. Spanning various instalments across all three PlayStation platforms, these discounts encompass pretty much the entire property – well, aside from brand black sheep Call of Duty: World at War anyway. Honestly, there have been...

Easier said than done

After taking part in Destiny's recent Alpha, we were happy to report that we found the experience completely hassle free. We spent over 25 hours in Bungie's newly created world, and we didn't come across a single connection problem, big or small. It provided a promising glimpse of the full release, but as we all know too well,...

Destiny's Extra PS4 and PS3 Content Will Only Be Exclusive Till Next Year

Jumping jive

Timed exclusive content is a lot like the lottery: it's a constant source of bitterness, until you're on the receiving end. So, it's with great care that we report on recent rumours that the promised extra features on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 for hotly anticipated shooter Destiny will only be exclusive until next year.
