Gigglebit: An honest appraisal of Destiny

22 Oct 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

The Bungie game Destiny has broken all records when it comes to gaming from being one of the most expensive ever made, to one that has broken playing records since it first launched last September.

However, not everyone has been happy with the game, particularly YouTube channel, Smosh Games, that decided to recreate a trailer to the game, with a little more honesty.
