Destiny has come a long way from it’s original release in 2014, settling into arguably one of the most divisive games in the industry.

I couldn’t tell you any sort of narrative moment within the first Destiny, and quite honestly I pre...[Read More]

While remakes are going to implement a sense of nostalgia for fans of the original game, this remake also serves as a continuation to the fr...[Read More]
