Destiny 2 players are exploiting an old glitch to get the best new drops

Bungie launched Destiny 2’s latest season, Season of Arrivals, on June 9, alongside its reveal of Destiny 2: Beyond Light this fall. But since the season’s launch, players have resurrected an old glitch to help trivialize some of this season’s content. The Forges from Black Armory are now the most popular activity in Destiny 2, due to players exploiting this glitch, and some players feel cheated.

The AFK Forge farm has been a common Destiny 2 exploit for nearly two years. Normally, Destiny 2 has a pretty strict timer for how long a player can be AFK, or “away from keyboard,” and it will kick players for inactivity. But the Forges are activities with an inherently short base timer — when done correctly, the timer goes up as you progress. So, if you get a like-minded group of AFKers, the Forge will timeout and your group will fail before anyone gets kicked.

Fortnite Chapter 2 season 2 is finally about to come to an end, and a new event will mark the occasion. The event is called The Device, and while we don’t know too much about it, it promises to radically change the Fortnite island, and you’ll want to be there to witness it.

The Device itself appears to be the glowing orb that sits in Midas’ base. While Midas first seemed to be a spy and the head of The Agency — also a skin in the battle pass — it turns out he has grander ambitions and plans to use the Device on the Fortnite island.

Persona 4 Golden comes to Steam today in surprise launch

Persona 4 Golden, the definitive version of the lauded JRPG, is making its way to Steam on Saturday, in a surprise launch by developer Atlus. The game is available for purchase right now.

This marks the first time Persona 4 Golden has been available on any platform besides the PlayStation Vita, where it was launched in Japan and the U.S. in 2012. While 2012 was the Vita’s launch year, the platform has since languished, with Sony ending manufacturing and shipping in 2019. Golden added new characters, additional story and other features to the original Persona 4, which was released for PlayStation 2 in 2008.
