Xenophage, the Destiny 2 machine gun with a bug in it, is also bugged

Xenophage is a sweet-looking exotic machine gun in Destiny 2 that dropped earlier this week. As we explained in our recent guide to getting the thing, its magazine capacity is relatively small but it fires explosive rounds that can chew through waves of enemies with an alarming quickness. But players have noticed that despite its ability to mow through trash mobs, the actual damage is relatively lacklustre, and outperformed by most power weapons in the game.

The retro horror game Faith is coming to Steam with a brand-new chapter

The top-down retro-adventure Faith, we said back in March, is one of the best horror games to come along in recent years. You play as a priest, armed with only a crucifix, who must banish spirits from a haunted property—spirits who, it bears mentioning, will tear you into pieces if you're not careful. Faith Chapter 2 has a similar setup, with improved pixel art and "memorable sequences including the game's surprisingly violent death animations."

Crucial adds a capacious 2TB model to its budget-oriented BX500 SSD line

Mechanical hard drives still offer more capacity for the money, but it comes at the expense of speed and performance. They're also more delicate due to having moving parts, though NAND flash cells wear out of time/use, so there's a different debate to be had there. As it relates to capacity, though, bigger SSDs exist and they don't necessarily cost a king's ransom. Case in point, Crucial (a division of Micron) has added a 2TB model to its BX500 SSD series.

This week's Epic Games Store freebies are excellent Halloween fare, but they couldn't be more different. Costume Quest and SOMA will both keep you company during the spookiest part of the year, one comforting you while the other tries to freak you out.

AMD's comments on CPU design reflect it is in a very different place than Intel right now

AMD just wrapped up a quarter in which it generated the highest revenue since 2005, and that in and of itself is impressive. The real story is not in the sales numbers, though. What I find more interesting than anything else, as it pertains to AMD's current situation, is how it finds itself operating in a much different mindset than rival Intel, which for years offered up the most advanced processor technology on the market.
