Bungie Shuts Down Destiny’s Infamous Treasure Cave

What's Your Tag?

destiny-loot-caveAs Bungie continues its efforts to tweak and improve Destiny, the “Treasure Cave” or “Loot Cave” has been closed. In a patch issued today, the exploit used to gain large amounts of XP and item drops has been removed.

The Hive of the holy “Treasure Cave” have realized the futility of their endless assault on Skywatch and have retired to lick their wounds and plan their next attack. – Bungie

Whether or not you supported this exploit, it stood out as an interesting phenomenon within the game. Even if you didn’t want to stand there and mindlessly shoot into a cave in the hopes of getting a random drop of loot, you could watch others participate in the pursuit and be entertained. Some would stand there in place for long sessions, while others would bore quickly. There were players that angered when others joined or left and some that…

Free PS4 Multiplayer… For A Weekend

What's Your Tag?

playstation-logo-21If you have a PS4 but don’t have a PS Plus subscription:

  • A – What is wrong with you?
  • B – Multiplayer will be free this weekend.

Unlike the PS3, multiplayer action is behind the paywall for the PS4 but all will have access to it from Friday September 26th at 12:01am until Sunday September 28th at 11:59pm.

This gives you a solid three days to play the Crucible and Vanguard portions of Destiny, or take your skills online in Madden 15 or whatever other game you’ve not been able to access the multiplayer for.

I want to talk to those of you that have a PS4 but don’t have PS Plus. Seriously, what is wrong with you???

Ouch… Sony Ups Prediction of Financial Losses

What's Your Tag?

sony-logo-001Despite its best efforts, Sony is raising the amount it is predicting to lose this financial year. The loss is now expected to be $2.2 billion rather than $1.7 billion. The company is also planning to layoff 15% of its 7,100 employees. The cuts will come mostly from its retail market related to mobile devices and tablets. In fact, the losses are so bad that the company will not pay a stock dividend for the first time since 1958 – a mear twelve years after its inception.

Unfortunately Sony as a whole is still not profitable and we’ve spoken of some of this before, both here and here. After spinning off its television and display division, Sony also sold its computer division to a fellow Japanese company. It also sold its corporate headquarters and is now renting space within the building. PlayStation has remained one of the few profitable sources…

Destiny Review

What's Your Tag?

Destiny-HDDestiny was one of, if not the, most anticipated games to be released in 2014. Now that the hype train has pulled into the station, let us begin our evaluation of what Bungie has given us. Spoilers will not be discussed as this is a review of the game and not a detailed guide.

destiny-travelerSet in a time after humanity’s golden age, you and your fellow guardians are tasked with protecting the last city on Earth from the oncoming darkness. From the onset, the story it is riddled with vagueness and ambiguity. Known for its adventure based stories and futuristic settings, Bungie poised itself to deliver the next epic space adventure, but due to the lack of detail the campaign is the weakest element in the game.

The Traveler (the protector of the city) as well as the darkness (enemy of The Traveler) are never clearly explained. The true details of these and…
