  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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: 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

  • 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

  • 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 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger Of The Ooze

    Activision released a new game today starring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, developed by WayForward. Did the studio behind games including DuckTales: Remastered, Contra 4, and Double Dragon Neon deliver a game worthy of the license, or does it keep the streak of disappointing Turtles games going...

  • Blog Post: Opinion: Destiny Feels Like A Free-To-Play MMORPG

    So here we are, nearly a month after the release of Bungie’s Destiny. Players are starting to hit high levels after exercising their preferred method of gear acquisition, from the slow but surefire mark/rep grinds to the roll of the dice at the loot cave.

  • Blog Post: Destiny: I’m Level 20, Now What?

    The road to 20 in Destiny can be a quick one, with story mission experience bonuses and bounties coming together to achieve the so-called “soft-cap” quickly. But what can you do once you’ve reached the “endgame”? Scoring some legendary or exotic gear pieces and ramping up... More
  • Blog Post: Destiny: How To Get Guaranteed Legendary And Exotic Items

    Since Destiny’s launch, I’ve seen tons of comments about those lovable legendary engrams that end up being rares or resources instead of a legendary item.
