Is Master Ketchcrash Worth it in Destiny 2 Season of Plunder?

As has become standard for seasonal activities in Destiny 2, there’s a Master version of the Ketchcrash available in Season of Plunder. This version of Ketchcrash is considerably more difficult, with a higher Power, more enemies and Champions, and a whole host of restrictive modifiers. Oh, and matchmaking is turned off…

The Tired Gibbon: A Destiny NFT Story

“Well, if it isn’t my favorite Guardian,” Drifter said, getting up from his stool to greet the Awoken man with an irritated look on his face as he entered the bar. It was mid-day, and the bar was hardly occupied at all — a few patrons here and there, but…

I Hope ‘Witch Queen’ Adds a Nemesis System to Destiny 2

Bungie is set to reveal information about the next Destiny 2 expansion, Witch Queen, next week. And with the season effectively over, my attention has turned to other games, like Warframe.

Destiny is Finally Solving Its Protagonist Problem

I’ll be the first to admit it: I love Destiny lore. From the series’s beginning, I’ve loved digging deep into the fictional sandbox that Bungie’s writers have built. It’s a world where immortal Thanatonauts spend their moments between temporary deaths and inevitable resurrections in meditation about space magic. It’s a…

Destiny Needs to Stop Having its Most Impactful Moments Offscreen

The fall of the Cabal homeworld, Torobatl. The heroic sacrifice of Osiris’s Ghost, Sagira. The Exo Stranger’s journeys into a dark future. What do these Destiny moments have in common? They all happened offscreen, relegated to lore books — or worse, web-only short fiction. It’s not a new problem, of course — Destiny players…

5 Ideas Destiny Should Steal From Monster Hunter

With Monster Hunter Rise coming later this month, I’ve been reflecting on my experiences with the series. Monster Hunter‘s basic loop has a lot in common with Destiny, in that it’s a cooperative mission-based online game played primarily with small groups of people.

Bungie, Please Put JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure in Destiny 2

So, I’ve been thinking. Destiny is a franchise about superpowered warriors fighting each other using magical powers that operate on arcane, complicated principles. And you know what else fits that description? JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. This realization immediately prompted in me a powerful desire for JJBA-themed content in Destiny. And look: I hate Two Things as…
