A dedicated Destiny 2 fan has discovered a way to get the game running on a calculator with the help of Google Stadia.

What started out as a tweet which read "I have time to kill before work. Let’s see if I can run Destiny 2 on a calculator," later turned into Twitter user and Destiny fan Delta806 somehow managing to get Destiny 2 running on a TI-Nspire CX calculator. 

This understandably garnered a lot of attention from other Destiny fans and resulted in more than one maths joke. One Twitter user replied to Delta806’s tweet that showed the game running on the calculator with "how do you shoot...your gun?" To which another replied, "by solving the Pythagorean theorem."

We’re not sure that this is the best way to experience Destiny 2 but it does give the game a lot more handheld potential. It turns out that Delta806 managed this impressive yet unorthodox method with the use of gaming streaming platform Google Stadia. Since the service is able to run on anything that has an Android OS, the possibilities of what you can play Destiny 2 on are pretty expansive. 

In fact, there’s even a dedicated subreddit called Can it run Stadia? that is exclusively made up of people using Stadia to run games in the most unusual places. For example, another Destiny fan who wanted to take the game on the go (sort of) managed to get it running on a treadmill. Another player got Assassin’s Creed Valhalla playing in their Tesla

As for what Delta806 is working on next, they’ve recently shared a photo of a Nintendo DSI with the caption "I’ve had another idea," so we can’t wait to see what else the Destiny 2-themed mad scientist will try next.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
