The actual song doesn't kick in until a minute into the video. That's when this team of Destiny players rocks their bodies to Backstreet Boys' "Everybody".

They really make the most of the emotes and new dances that the Taken King expansion brought to Destiny last month. And they also are awesome.

Happy Wednesday!

Destiny's new microtransactions will go to fund free DLC

This might possibly be the best of both worlds? Maybe?

Yesterday, Kotaku reported on rumors they heard about microtransaction coming to the popular social shooter Destiny. They also talked about Bungie using the money gained through those transactions to fund DLC, allowing the developer to give it away for free.

This is all part of a new plan that could start as early as this month, according to two people familiar with Destiny's development. Rather than sell big expansion packs like they did last year, Bungie is planning on giving out quests and missions for free, sources say. This will likely involve big drops every few months until the fall of 2016 but could also include trickles of smaller stuff throughout the year.

That means the game's next paid expansion will be Destiny 2 in the fall of 2016, as has been known for a while now. That'll be $60.

And then Oct. 6, Bungie confirmed it:

This coming Tuesday, October 13th, Tess Everis will return to The Tower with a new look, a new storefront, and some new items to sell, courtesy of Eververse Trading Company. Initially, Tess will offer eighteen brand new emotes. Like the trio of emotes offered via The Taken King Collector's Edition, these emotes are completely optional, and won't impact the action game in any way.

To acquire these items, you'll first need to pick up some "Silver," a new in-game currency that will be available for purchase through the store associated with your console. Images and descriptions for each available emote, along with pricing information for Silver will be made available Tuesday, October 13th, alongside the launch of the in-game storefront right here on as soon as the content is live.

So if you want to customize your guardian for a small price, you can!

If you want free DLC, you get that too!

If you don't want either, you don't have to worry about it at all!

See, best of both worlds.

Bungie's gearing up for the biggest expansion to their enormous space shooter Destiny. The Taken King will release Sept. 15, but before that, they want to get people primed and ready.

This video should help.

The trailer is also somewhat notable because its the first time Bungie has showed footage of the ghost companion voiced by Nolan North, who took over for Peter Dinklage and what many think was a sub par performance.

Xur sells gjallarhorn and Destiny players lose it.

Maybe you know what most of the words mean in that headline and maybe you don't. Either way, you should know today is a big day for a small selection of video game players.

For the first time since shortly after the launch of Destiny, Xûr, the mysterious Agent of the Nine who appears in different parts of the social areas every weekend to hock rare exotic wares, is selling the most powerful weapon in the game: Gjallarhorn.

Gjallarahorn (or Ballerhorn as it is colloquially known) is a rocket launcher and in the Bungie-developed shooter that's basically an MMO, it's really helpful to have something so powerful when bosses can take a while to beat.

The reason this is something of a bigger deal is because Gjallarhorn was a very elusive drop that became something of a necessity for seasoned players who ventured into Destiny's repetitive but rewarding grind day after day. For many unlucky people (myself included), the random number generator-based loot drop system employed by Bungie never gave up the Gjallarhorn goods. But today and through this weekend, they can purchase it with dignity.

It's a big deal. Hell, even Forbes wrote about it because who knows what their focus is anymore.

The Internet's reaction to this has been pretty fantastic. It was even trending on Twitter throughout America.

But the best reaction has been from the Destiny subreddit.


All users on the site have been given Gjallarhorn flair next to their posts.

The banner image has been done up for the holiday.

And even the cursor has been turned into a Gjallarhorn for maximum celebration.

So if you're one of the unfortunate masses who have never heard the sweet destruction from a Gjallarhorn muzzle, head over to the tower, give Xûr 17 Strange Coins and buy one for yourself.

Every gamer knows that the bond formed with their virtual teammates is as real as any formed in the real world, and losing one of those friends is a truly painful loss.  After one of their clanmates passed away due to complications arising from a lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis, the Dads of Destiny clan found a truly touching way to salute their comrade. 

Known as TheSquashPhD in Destiny, Joshua R. Stokell of Charlotte, NC passed away on June 8.  He was 36 years old.  Josh had a PhD in Microbiology and was a Post- Doctoral Fellow at UNC-Charlotte researching Cystic Fibrosis.
