First introduced with The Taken King and reappearing over the weekend, Mayhem is a specialist mode within Destiny's PvP that basically turns everything up to 11. It's not available as a permanent game type, but it damn well should be, and every other FPS should have it as well.


Destiny, a video game in which players travel through space wondering why the hell they can't get new artifacts, has a brand new quest that might be the most complicated thing we've seen in the game to date. It involves completing the new raid, finding a whole bunch of secrets and... converting binary numbers to decimals. Destiny!


With every new Destiny raid comes all sorts of potential new secrets, and Wrath of the Machine, which launched last week alongside Rise of the Iron, follows the trend. Over the past few days, the raid has inspired countless Reddit threads about what might be hidden in the depths of the Cosmodrome. One thing that definitely isn't there: a coherent story. But there might be a cool chest.


We've had roughly a week with Destiny's latest expansion, Rise of Iron, and so far the takeaway has been generally positive. It's got one of the game's best story missions, and we're finally getting a sense of what Destiny can do when it doesn't have to accommodate for the 360 and PS3.

But are you having fun?


A lot of people have spent a lot of time playing Destiny, a video game in which players travel the galaxy watching internet commenters write things like "nobody plays Destiny." But what about Kotaku's staff? How much time have we wasted on this terrible, wonderful game?


Mark your calendars people: it begins today. I'm talking about the silly season of gaming that the last few months of the year becomes, and it begins today with the release of one of the biggest AAA titles around.

That game, of course, is the latest expansion for Destiny. And if you're planning on investing hundreds of hours into Bungie's new content, or you're looking to get into the game for the first time, then here's where you can pick up the cheapest copy.


If you're that rare breed of gamer who is dedicated to Destiny on the Xbox One, you deserve some credit. It's been a hard slog, and being shut out of exclusive content can't have been fun. But I have some bad news for you -- if you were hoping to finally get access to some of the timed exclusives from The Taken King, you'll have to wait a little longer.
