    Default Today's Destiny Xbox update tweaks Raids, classes, weapons and the world

    Destiny is another word for "fate", and to paraphrase Sarah Connor from Terminator 2, "there's no fate but what we make... then gradually overhaul by way of downloadable updates". Yes, Bungie has once again taken a hammer and pliers to its first post-Halo shooter, tweaking the guns, missions, UI and whatever it deems necessary to ensure that you enjoy Destiny slightly more today than you did last night.

    There's more to follow. "We're still working on a larger update which will address under-performing Exotics and overall class balance," notes a blog post. What do you think of the new patch? Any other requests? A better representation of player power during Iron Banner events, perhaps? Raid match-making? A new planet? I could go for a new planet. Something like Endor with a touch of Douglas Adams, please.
