The king has fallen

Raids, as this author understands them, are the uber-complex end-game missions in Destiny that are supposed to take weeks to conquer. It's no surprise, then, that there's serious online street cred up for grabs if you can come through them in hours – and one The Taken King gang will be lapping up the plaudits today, as they...

Year two of Destiny is well and truly under way with the release of The Taken King – the shooter's largest piece of downloadable content to date.

Destiny: The Taken King's Live Action Trailer Is Here and It's Still Not as Good as the Japanese Ad

We've been spoiled

If you remember back to the first ever live action trailer for Destiny, then you'll probably recall that it was a bit cringe-worthy - but it was still well done and quite entertaining.
