Gaming News and Info


Halo 5 Some old favorites will be added to Halo 5 later this month with the addition of three modes. Assault, Fiesta and Grifball will all be coming back. Yes. That also means the Gravity Hammer is being added to make Grifball like it was before. So get ready for some chaos. If you want to know a little more about each mode then read on.


Destiny We have vague information and very specific details for you this week concerning Destiny. Let’s get the stuff we know nothing about out of the way first.

Bungie has announced that there will be a larger update in the spring that will significantly increase the light level as well as add new guns and armor. It will also feature new challenges for PvE content. Also coming later this year is a large expansion, with another Destiny game coming sometime in 2017. This is barely even worth mentioning considering how limited the information is, but that’s all they gave us.

Now for the detailed information we mentioned before. Here are the patch notes for the February 2.1.1 update. It’s a long list worth checking out if you play quite often.

Also, Bungie will be sending out 320 Ghosts to all players that complete seven matches in the Crimson Doubles playlist before it ends. The drop rate was lower than expected so this is their Valentine’s Day present to the players.
