There were a bunch of excellent games released this year - we are celebrating them with all our awards today. However, many of us are looking back on 2014 and wondering what happened. It was supposed to be an amazing year for gaming, but so much went so wrong.

I've always been too afraid to modify my tech. I'm sure it's perfectly safe or awesome, but I'm just one of those people who doesn't touch anything that could void a warrantee. Besides, if I wanted to modify my tech, why would I buy a console? Bungie seems to have the same feeling as they were swinging the ban hammer this week.

I’ve yet to jump into Destiny head-on. Because right now, I’m playing a waiting game, as I’ve got a R10 bet with Matty that we’ll see a GOTY edition of the game by September 2015 that packs in all the game DLC. That might be a wise move on my part. Because without that DLC which cost the prettiest of pennies, players are going to be locked out of certain in-game content.

Finding a group of like-minded, sufficiently levelled players to tackle Bungie’s arduous raids is a difficult task. If you don't have a group of friends ready and willing to raid, you’re left out. One of the most oft-requested features from people who don’t have a regular group of Destiny-playing buddies is for some sort of Raid matchmaking. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that’s coming. Bungie has said it has “no plans” to implement Raid matchmaking.

Destiny’s first expansion, The Dark Below, is coming next week. As you’re likely aware, those playing the game on PlayStation platforms will be treated to exclusive content that won’t be going to that other platform until "at least Autumn 2015." Sony’s PlayStation Blog has finally detailed that content.

Destiny fans, prepare yourselves. Because the game is about to unlock the potential of its exotic weapons. Those magnificent death-dealing guns that are pried from the dying hands of various high-level foes are about to be overhauled, and buffed to be even better than usual at the speedy delivery of lead implants into the face of your nearest nemesis.

Despite a mixed reception at launch, millions of you are still playing Bungie's online shooter, Destiny. The first major content expansion is on the horizon, with the Dark Below aiming to deliver on fan's requests since launch. That's probably why Destiny's greatest weapon has a much bigger role to play this time around.

With all of the review games of late, I just haven't been able to put much time in to Destiny. That should hopefully change with the impending release of the game’s first expansion, The Dark Below. In preparation for that bit of content, Destiny has has been on the receiving end of a rather large, 2.44Gb patch. It adds a bunch of things, fixes a bunch of things. Notably, there’s now an opt-in team chat, bringing voice coms to matchmade teams.

I haven't played Destiny in weeks, and I don't plan on returning soon. I do know that millions of other people are still playing though and loving every social second, and I'm glad not everyone found it to be a waste of hard money. So if you're one of those people, here's a heads up on some server downtime.

Just before the weekend, Bungie revealed a bit of news that’ll have the many of you still playing Destiny rather excited; they’re going to be a little more generous when it comes to handing out better gear. It’s just one of the many promised tweaks and tunes that’ll be coming for the game in the coming weeks leading up to the release of the game’s first major DLC, the ominously named “The Dark Below”.

Destiny is about safeguarding humanity, uncovering the lost secrets of our golden age and fighting back against the McDarkness that threatens to to engulf our species and snuff it out once and for all. It’s also all about the loot, which is infinitely more important, something that most number-crunchers can agree on with me. Here’s a look at all the lovely new potential gear on the way back into the game.

If I have to be honest, Destiny has been a massive let down for me. I've grown bored of Bungie's MMO-like shooter very quickly, and I know I'm not the only one. But that doesn't mean no one is playing Destiny. In fact, a lot of people still are - who are all looking forward to the first expansion which now has a release date.

There seems to be a new theme doing the rounds in the gaming community at the moment and that is that there is a large, and vocal, crowd of people who appear to just want new IP’s to fail.
