Editor’s note: This review was originally conducted in a podcast format, available as a video above or right here as an audio file. A summary of the review follows. Note that after this review was recorded, Bungie announced that it would begin including the previous DLC releases, Curse of Osiris and Warmind, in the Forsaken package on October 16.

It’s becoming a tradition for Bungie to release a Destiny game with some persistent issues, then hammer those issues out into a smoother, more pleasant shape with a major expansion a year later. Just like The Taken King made the original Destiny a more interesting, rewarding game, Destiny 2’s big 40 dollar add-on Forsaken has done the same for the sequel with dramatic improvements to loot and character progression, a more intriguing story and set of new areas to explore, and a major new multiplayer mode. Most importantly, all these pieces fit together more seamlessly than they did in the release game. It’s easily the best Destiny 2 has been so far.

Forsaken picks up the story of the Awoken, the wispy blue space people who live in the asteroid belt, after they were all but annihilated by Oryx’s Taken fleet in the previous game. The Queen’s whereabouts are still unknown, sniveling Prince Uldren is back and more deranged than usual, and he’s backed up by a distinctive rogues’ gallery of especially nasty monsters, drawn from a new enemy faction, who you’ll spend much of the campaign facing down in unique boss fights. The Forsaken campaign spans two new patrol zones: the ramshackle Tangled Shore, a thieves’ den made up of a bunch of lashed-together floating rocks, and the Dreaming City, the mystical ancestral home of the Awoken which has a distinctly fantasy-like bent and houses the most secrets and side activities of any Destiny zone in recent memory.

The flow and design of the campaign’s story missions take a lot of creative liberties with Destiny’s mechanics and structure, resulting in what’s probably the most consistently surprising and entertaining chunk of story content Bungie has created to date. Forsaken dispenses with wisecracking robotic series regular Cayde-6 early on in a dramatic fashion, but the game doesn’t get much lasting material out of his death. The more enduring storyline around the Awoken’s quest to retake their homeland works much better, and weaves through every bit of the content here, from the initial campaign through post-story world missions, the new (and very tough) raid, and even on into the weekly loot grind, which now revolves around a bizarre metanarrative in which the characters themselves are trying to understand why they’re repeating the same actions over and over again from week to week. There’s ethereal Awoken magic and strange goings-on at every step. The story content isn’t just wide-ranging and weird, there’s also just a huge amount of it, certainly the most Destiny has packed into an expansion to date.

Due to a number of design missteps, Destiny 2 came and went for a lot of people. Thankfully, the changes Forsaken makes under the hood are what really prop up all the new story stuff and give the game more staying power. Bungie has made loot meaningful again by… making it more like the loot in the first game, which is to say every weapon and piece of armor once again comes with a random set of perks. So if you get three of the same scout rifle, they’ll all have different firing characteristics that make it worth comparing them and picking your favorite, instead of just trashing all your duplicates. There are dramatically more “powerful gear” quests day to day and week to week that give you chances to get better items. The new collections interface lets you keep track of and reacquire all the old gear, cosmetic items, shaders and so forth you’ve found so far. There are even new ways to earn in-game currency for cosmetic items that you would have just paid real money for back at launch. It’s just a tighter, friendlier game in nearly every way.

If you ever wished they'd cram a little MOBA into Destiny, Gambit is for you.

The new four-on-four Gambit multiplayer mode mostly does a great job of rounding out the usual assortment of strikes, Crucible, weekly challenges and so forth. Taking a few MOBA cues, it tasks your team with killing enemies faster than another team who’s playing on a separate map, with both teams racing to hit a quota that spawns a boss you have to kill first to win the round. Where Gambit gets interesting–and wildly exhilarating or infuriating, depending on which side you land on–is that your team has limited opportunities for one player to invade and kill the other team, which can massively hamper their progress toward spawning their boss (or will just heal the boss, if it’s already out). There’s the potential for massive swings in match momentum, depending on how you invade or get invaded, how you strategically use your super ability to clear enemies quickly or wipe the other team, and so forth. You can pretty much singlehandedly gain an insurmountable lead for your team or stage an improbable comeback with a crucial play. Gambit is full of extreme highs and lows, though due to the 20 to 30 minutes it takes to finish a match and its reliance on competent teamwork, it tends toward lows in the same way MOBAs do. Feeling like you just wasted half an hour due to a boneheaded team or one ruinous invasion from the other side is awfully demoralizing. Gambit is best played with a squad of friends who know what they’re doing.

At its heart, Destiny 2 is still of course a loot-based game, with all the inherent drawbacks of a genre that functions largely like a capsule machine. You might play it compulsively, or stay up late trying to grind out weekly activities before you lose them. You might spend an evening grinding out Crucible kills only to get three equivalent sets of the same boots. But at least the structure is now intelligently designed, and the content is creative and varied enough, that it’s actually worth coming back to the game even after you’ve finished the story. Bungie has clearly learned its lesson after Destiny 2’s missteps, and finally found a winning formula that sets up a brighter, more enduring future for the franchise. Hopefully this time that lesson will stick.

    One thing I can say without reservation about Doom Eternal is that it's ambitious as hell. The devs at id weren't content to just pop out a new set of levels with one new weapon and a couple of enemies (which, ironically, is how the original Doom II came about). Instead they included an enormous roster of new ideas both obvious and unexpected, and took these additions and enhancements to over-the-top extremes. Eternal may not have quite the same purity of focus as its predecessor, but it's so relentless about throwing everything in its toolbox at you at a thousand miles an hour that it's often hard to stop and notice.

    It's good enough that its host of technical problems feels like an affront to what the game could have been, and to the hard work and talent--and there's a considerable amount of talent here--of the people who made it.

    On paper, these elements add up to one of the most elaborate and original Star Wars games in a very long time, but poor performance, a multitude of minor bugs, and a pervasive sense that swaths of the game are just lacking in refinement all undermine what would otherwise be an easy game to recommend.

    • 80Critic Score
    The game looks really great and has a deliberately brighter and more varied color palette than most of the previous games. While I think the open-world stuff is flat and could have been way better, there are moments out there in the nothingness that just look straight-up incredible, including a late-game weather sequence that, despite not being great gameplay, was worth seeing a couple of times just for the visuals alone.

    Twice on PS4, the game crashed so hard that it literally powered down my console, forcing me to repair all my storage devices before I could boot it back up. A game making you worry about damaging your hardware is just inexcusable. I don't remember seeing this many big and small technical issues in a major release since, well, Mass Effect: Andromeda. How that reflects on BioWare's recent track record doesn't really need to be said.
    • 59Metascore
    • 40Critic Score
    Anthem needs more than just new content. A lot of work needs to be done on a wide variety of the game's fundamental elements before it can join the ranks of other redeemed loot games like Diablo III, Destiny, and The Division. Whether EA will give BioWare the latitude to overhaul the parts of the game that need it--and whether it's even technically feasible for them to do that in the first place--are questions with uncertain answers.

    Crackdown 3 shows very little in the way of learning from the past or learning from the other open-world games that have graced consoles over the last nine years. Instead it feels slight, mindless, and dull. It feels like a gussied-up first-generation Xbox One game. Like the sort of game you might have expected to hear about back in 2014. In the here and now, though, there's... way less room for this sort of game on store shelves.

    It is an incredible achievement in open world gaming, an intricate machine that disguises its machinery better than just about anything else that's come before. In addition to its lengthy and engrossing campaign, it delivers moments of emergent storytelling more compelling than anything I can ever remember playing. Graphically and aurally, it is top-to-bottom stunning.

    This big year-two expansion irons out most of Destiny 2's wrinkles and offers some of the most mysterious, enjoyable content the series has seen so far.

Bomb 2 giant destiny

Twitter Confused by Giant Bomb Trend

By Dalton Cooper

ShareTweetEmail

With WWIII being the top trend on Twitter right now, it seems some Twitter users are confused about why 'Giant Bomb' is trending.

The top trend on Twitter right now is #WWIII. With well over 1 million tweets, it seems many are worried that the recent airstrike attack that killed Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani may escalate into an all-out global conflict. Considering this, it's no surprise that many Twitter users, and even Twitter itself, seem to be confused why "Giant Bomb" has been trending today as well.

It's easy to forgive people for assuming "Giant Bomb" is trending due to recent events, especially since Twitter has grouped it in with other trends like "Russia" and "China." At this point, the Giant Bomb Twitter trend may very well be tied more to those keywords, but the reason it started trending has nothing to do with global warfare - it's in reference to the video game website Giant Bomb.

RELATED: PewDiePie Deleted His Twitter Account

Dan Ryckert, a longtime video game journalist who worked at Game Informer before Giant Bomb, is leaving the website to work for the WWE. Ryckert made the announcement on Twitter earlier this morning, which is what caused Giant Bomb to start trending. Ryckert's initial post on the matter has thousands of likes as well as hundreds of comments and re-tweets at the time of this writing.

For those wondering why Ryckert is transitioning from his role as a video game journalist to working for WWE, it's because of his passion for professional wrestling. In a follow-up tweet, Ryckert explained that his "two biggest passions have always been video games and wrestling." However, even though Ryckert will be working at WWE in Stamford, Connecticut, it doesn't mean he will be involved in programs like Monday Night Raw or Friday Night SmackDown.

While Ryckert may very well have the charisma to be an on-air personality for the WWE, he will instead be working behind the scenes. More specifically, Ryckert will be producing podcasts for the WWE, including popular WWE podcasts like After the Bell (hosted by Corey Graves) and The New Day: Feel the Power.

WWE has been more serious about pursuing podcasts in recent years, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the company expand into making even more podcasts starring various superstars on its roster.

Similar news:

Earlier this week, longtime Giant Bomb employees Brad Shoemaker, Vinny Caravella, and Alex Navarro all announced they would be leaving the site. Today, May 7, is their final day, and Giant Bomb is holding a special stream to celebrate their legacy.

The "See You Next Game" stream is happening now, and it follows the final Giant Beastcast from the previous day, which saw an appearance from former editor Dan Ryckert. We expect to shed some tears during the stream, as Caravella and Shoemaker have both been at Giant Bomb since the very beginning, while Navarro joined in 2010. Previously, all three also worked at GameSpot, of which Giant Bomb is a sister site.

You can watch the stream directly at Giant Bomb, on Twitch, or right here via the stream embedded above.

Despite the three longtime members' departure today, Giant Bomb is not ending. Founder Jeff Gerstmann told GameSpot that there's a "collective vision for what the future of Giant Bomb is and it involves both familiar and new faces," and that the team "already in talks with creators" about what comes next.

Giant Bomb was founded in 2008 and came back under the same roof as GameSpot in 2012. It is your sole source for videos of people playing Mario on 3DS while riding a roller coaster over and over again.
