    Happy Xursday, everyone! We have some good news and bad news this week. Finally, Xur has exotic engrams again. You can roll the dice with your motes of light on helmets. Now for the bad news.

  • Blog Post: Six Places We Want To Visit In Destiny (But Can’t)

    If you’ve been playing a lot of Destiny, it’s likely you’ve come face to face with some locations that seem to indicate the presence of something cool to do or explore, but for one reason or another, that location remains blocked to your guardian. I’ve been wandering the planets... More
  • Blog Post: Destiny - Xur's Gear And Upgrades For The Weekend Of January 16

    Xur is back in Destiny’s Tower, and this week he's brought one of the most sought after weapons in the game. We hope you saved your strange coins for Icebreaker.

  • Blog Post: Destiny - Xur's Gear And Upgrades For The Weekend Of January 9

    Xur is back in Destiny’s Tower, but this week his offerings are a little lighter than usual. He often carries with him an exotic engram, but you won’t find one in stock this weekend. The Agent of the Nine can be found just inside the Hangar (go down the stairs and bear right). Warlocks will... More
  • Blog Post: Bungie Gives Out Free Legendary Weapons, Players Complain On Twitter

    As promised, Bungie has delivered a legendary gift to Destiny players. Contrary to our expectations though, it isn’t a cosmetic item. My package contained a void-powered fusion rifle. I’m pretty pleased with it, as it rounds out my arsenal a bit. You can check it out below. Unfortunately... More
  • Blog Post: The Games I Wasn’t Playing Over The Holidays (And Why)

    I had big plans over the holidays. And, as you can probably tell from the headline, I dropped the ball on quite a few of them. But let’s start with the successes. While I was on vacation with my family, I wrapped up one of last year’s best games. Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc was a delightfully... More
  • Blog Post: King’s Quest And Sierra: An Interview With Ken Williams

  • Blog Post: Destiny - Xur's Gear And Upgrades For The Weekend Of January 2

    It’s Friday, which means every Guardian’s favorite itinerant merchant is back in the Tower. Xur has with him some goodies for every class from The Dark Below expansion this week.

  • Blog Post: Opinion: My Paradoxical Love Of Destiny’s Grind

    For many players, the idea that anyone would still be playing Destiny three to four months into the game’s life cycle seems insane. Peruse any comment thread in a story about Bungie’s open world shooter, and you find your fair share of incredulous gamers, aghast that anyone would still be... More
  • Blog Post: Destiny: Evaluating Xur’s First Expansion Week And Looking Forward

    Destiny’s first expansion pack, The Dark Below, dropped on Tuesday, but key elements in the new upgrade system and even a quest was held up until Friday when mysterious vendor, Xûr, appeared in the Tower at his scheduled time. Today, we look back on the first weekend, analyze the pros and... More
  • Blog Post: Tips For Completing The Urn Of Sacrifice Quest Chain In Destiny's The Dark Below

    If you’ve been playing the first Destiny expansion, The Dark Below, this week, you might have noticed that one quest couldn’t be completed yet. Now that Xur is back in the Tower (look for him on the way to the Vanguard class mentors), you can purchase an item you need. For one strange coin... More
  • Blog Post: Tips For Coming Home To The Tower: My Return To Destiny

    I have rarely had a relationship with a game like the one Destiny has engendered. Through the campaign and the early strikes, I reveled in the experience, taking in as much as I possibly could. But something changed. Once I completed the story missions, I was stuck. I still got up every morning and ran... More
  • Blog Post: Stare Into The Dark Below – New Details On The Destiny Expansion

  • Blog Post: Fight For The Top 50 2014 – Skylanders: Trap Team

    Whittling down all of the year’s releases down to 50 is a difficult – some might say futile – task. The point of today’s challenges are to give editors a reason to spend time with a game that they might not ordinarily play. I can’t think of a better game for our annual Top... More

    Last week brought us a glimpse of the intro cinematic for The Dark Below, Bungie’s first expansion to its online multiplayer shooter, Destiny.

  • Blog Post: Why Can’t I Stop Playing Destiny?

    It’s hard to believe Destiny came out in September and I’m still jumping into it regularly. I’ve tried to pull away and try other games, but it keeps dragging me back. The upcoming release of The Dark Below expansion is only going to make that worse. I generally enjoy playing a game... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion - Twitch Viewership Data Has Little Value Without Industry-Wide Context

    Yesterday, we learned that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has become the most streamed console game on Twitch in 2014. While that's certainly notable in the sea of releases that have arrived this year, it doesn't really tell us much. "Most" is a great starting point for a conversation... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Assassin's Creed Unity

    With each successive entry into the Assassin’s Creed series, Ubisoft has pushed the boundaries of historic open world environments, and Unity is no exception. The war between the Templars and Assassins rages on and it looks better than ever on the new Anvil engine. Join Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves... More
  • Blog Post: Call Of Duty Should Always Have Single Player

    I know a good portion of Call of Duty players never fire up the campaign, opting instead to dedicate their time to the multiplayer modes. I agree that the multiplayer is the best part of Call of Duty. I don’t get the fascination of reaching prestige numerous times, but I’m a sucker for trying... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Part 2

    Join Andrew Reiner, Daniel Tack, and Jeff Cork as they check out some of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer modes, including the classic Kill Confirmed and offbeat zombie survival map Infected.
