At this point Bungie has added a lot of cool things that can happen while you are patrolling in Destiny around the different planets. Some of the new missions will even send you on a patrol to kill taken champions that show up in a similar way to how the wolves would prowl in the House of Wolves. I’m actually not a huge fan of how the champions had to be killed within so much time mainly because there is sometimes not enough people around. The same thing can happen when you want to run the Court of Oryx higher tiers and nobody is around to help. So why do we need six man fire teams while on patrol? Continue reading
In previous reviews and videos I have said that the Court of Oryx, a new public event in Destiny The Taken King, was a lot of fun. I still stand by that as I have thoroughly enjoyed all three tiers of the event. However the event requires extra players and reasonably high light levels in order to even stand a chance in the third tier. If you are below a certain light level you actually can’t even do damage to the enemies that spawn. Now, none of this would matter if there were always people around to take part. Continue reading
A group of people from my stream and I managed to start the new King’s Fall raid in Destiny The Taken King and we got passed the Warpriest!
If you’d like to watch how we did it click here for an exciting time of us figuring it all out.
For a while those of us who have criticized Destiny for its shortcomings have theorized that Activision may have been the primary cause behind most of the game’s problems. A recent lawsuit between Bungie and composer Marty O’Donnell puts meat on the bones of a theory many of us had. Bungie was being sued for monies due to O’Donnell for work he did on the soundtrack for Destiny and for profit sharing as well as other contractual agreements. What is now undeniable, thanks to details outlined in the lawsuit, is that Activision caused significant turbulence with the creative staff at Bungie around the time that the game was significantly delayed and had the story substantially revised.

The marketing campaign for Destiny’s incoming expansion, The Taken King, is in full swing and players are weighing in about the updates and changes. Something I have continually heard is that the first year of Destiny was basically just a beta and that The Taken King with all the other content is the complete game we all should have received. Now I’ve continually said that the incessant and bothersome weapon balancing has made the game feel like a paid beta with the moving weapon goal posts. I cannot, however, align myself with the idea that the entire first year of the game was a beta and that the game is only just now becoming a complete $60 game. Continue reading
There was another Destiny leak on reddit recently, and Paul Tassi has already spoken about why he thinks the whole thing is bogus speculation. To a point I think Tassi is right as most of the things claimed in the reddit post aren’t that difficult to come up with just from being familiar with the game, lore, and reveals of the Taken King. Tassi was admittedly disappointed that the post was receiving so much attention, traction, and belief from the community. I happen to think this sort “leak” is potentially by design from Bungie, but at the very least, it’s the result of how they talk about the game. Continue reading
Destiny has been a problematic and confusing game since its launch. Fans have criticized the size of the game, the amount of DLC, and recently the pricing structure of The Taken King expansion. Bungie even went so far as to sell the digital pieces of the Collector’s Edition after the outcry from fans because of an interview with Eurogamer. In the midst of this controversy Bungie has assured the fan base that more details about The Taken King are coming that will excite the community. Prior to this the consistent language from Bungie has been that The Taken King will be the most substantial injection of content to date. However, I think something is worrying when we examine the recent update with details about the content. Continue reading
