Bungie teases the days leading to Destiny Expansion II

Destiny's Expansion II might be coming late, but Bungie is making sure you'll be entertained, or at least informed, until that day arrives. House of Wolves, the title for the next big installment of one of the hottest MMO's to hit the console, is arriving on May 19. While gamers eagerly, and perhaps nervously, await that promised update, Bungie will be filling in the lull, not by spilling all, but by teasing bits and pieces that will make up Expansion II.

Bungie executive swatted by unknown prankster

The phenomenon of "swatting" -- calling in a fake threat to get a SWAT team sent to someone's home -- is both illegal and potentially dangerous. That hasn't stopped the "prank" from taking place in growing numbers, however, and newest to the list of victims is an unnamed Bungie executive. Law enforcement descended upon his Washington home in the wee morning hours yesterday following a call that was believed to come from the home making big claims: a family held hostage, bombs, and guns.
