[Revisited] A Possible Destiny

Well I finally caved and picked up a copy of Destiny 2; it was inevitable I suppose. I’ve only played a little bit so far, and I’m mildly surprised to say that I’m enjoying it so far. At launch, it’s far and away better than the original Destiny was at launch. So much so that…

It’s Not a Game. It’s a Service.

It’s finally taken hold, hasn’t it? This notion of video games as a service. It was only a few years ago that many of us were mocking the idea. “Treating games as a service? Like that would ever happen!” we scoffed. “Nobody will support that” we jeered. Yet, here we are. After years of getting…

I’m…still not sold on Destiny 2

Despite having some Destiny disillusionment, I couldn’t help but check out the Destiny 2 beta a couple weeks ago. I honestly wasn’t expecting much so I found myself pleasantly surprised by what it had to offer. The opening mission was engaging, the revamped Crucible was fun, and the “Inverted Spire” strike was at least new…

Relying on Lootboxes is a Mistake

Are you really happy with the lootbox system? I’m not. At first I thought they were fun. I mean, who doesn’t like the feeling of opening what is essentially treasure chest? The thing is though, almost all of the fun in a lootbox is found in the opening. Once it’s done, it’s done, and hopefully…

I’m Not Sold on Destiny 2…Yet.

So we’ve finally gotten a look behind the curtain for Destiny 2. Bungie revealed quite a lot at their Twitch reveal on Thursday and answered many of the questions that’ve been burning in our minds since the game was announced. Initially it was exciting to see the changes made to the Destiny formula and the new…

[REVISITED] Why Play Destiny?

With the “Age of Triumph” nearly upon us, the time has come for the greater Destiny community to make their return to the game, perhaps for the last time before the release of Destiny 2. With that in mind, now seems like the perfect time to revisit at least some of the reasons why so many…

Does it Have Replay Value?

Replay Value. It’s the last thing we think about when deciding whether or not we’re interested in a game, but it’s among the first when time comes to actually buy it. Having a reason to come back after the credits roll has always been important; it’s what the old arcade game literally banked on after…

Destiny’s 5 Best Hunter Cloaks

Destiny is a game about many things: exploration, reclaiming lost knowledge, uncovering the secrets of the Darkness, oh and it’s about looking as cool as possible while doing all that. I play as a Hunter, mostly for their class abilities but also for their cool factor. Titans have their marks and Warlocks have their bonds,…

Working to be Competitive

Destiny’s “Rise of Iron” expansion is finally out and with it comes new things to do and new gear to acquire! I’ve already played through the story and am looking forward to the new “Wrath of the Machine” raid, but what I’ve got my eye on are all the really flashy items to be awarded in…
