As we make our way to the Taken King let look back and reflect on the first year of Destiny. Haters hate because they can’t rate, and people can shout all they want about year one being a beta or this or that. At the end of the day Destiny is good and people play the game because it’s good – and this video is dedicated to our adventures in Destiny thus far and what sprang forth because of it. Here’s to more memories in year 2.
Now the thing about Destiny I wish there was more of is public events. You know, where you’re patrolling a planet to get resources or testing out a new loadout. Then all of a sudden the screen goes a little darker and a new prompt appears telling you something’s going down. Whether it’s a resource raid on the moon, chasing down a cabal scout on Mars, or stopping the vex from – doing whatever they’re doing on Venus; public events keep players on their toes in Destiny. Like I said however public events are few and far between overall, but in the Taken King they’re making a comeback with the Court of Oryx. It will be their first attempt at a multi-stage public event, where the more you challenge the court and survive the better the rewards become. Be careful though in order to win you’ll need the help of your friends & complete strangers – and sometime that might not be enough. On September 15th the Court will be open to you all – and I’ll see you all then.
Destiny hype keeps moving forward with the reveal of the newest strike “Shield Brothers” starring my favorite race: The Cabal. Now there are some that believe that the current stable of Destiny bosses are, and I quote: “Bullet Sponges”. To which I say: did those people ever play video games between the 80’s and now? Bosses are known for two things: impossible large health bars and impossible large health bars. There are very few video game bosses that don’t take a half a day to put into the ground (weak point bosses don’t count). However since this is Destiny, and since high, unreasonable, demands are constantly being thrown upon it – the Bullet Sponges have to change. So in the Taken King they’re trying to make their Bullet Sponges more dynamic and thus we have Shield Brothers Dreadnought Strike. Watch and see, I think they succeed, and they’re only the firsts bosses we’ve seen; imagine what Oryx is going to be like.
Time for another new segment called ‘GET HYPED!’ It’s like the game preview spots but they highlights one game’s features to, you guessed it, get players hyped for their upcoming title. This week will be all about Taken King, Destiny’s latest and possible greatest DLC to date. The new Dreadnought area is a place guardians will be exploring til next year’s event so it makes sense to show off the area. However for me I really appreciate them showing off the new class abilities (Sunbreaker 4 life), it good to know what your favorite guardian will be rocking on the 15th. This will be a glorious time for current and former Destiny players, and if you never played Destiny before watching this video may give you a reason.
