WTF/FTLOZ: Destiny – The Taken King / The ‘new’ voice of the Ghost


Well people as much and as many good things about the new DLC, The Taken King, has for us Destiny players; there is another side of this treasured coin. See the voice of the Ghost until recently was Peter Dinklage and his performance was just fine (contrary to the loudest minority and their baseless complaints). Throughout my adventure he was the ghost; adding commentary, dignity, and a little comedy to the story. However Dinklage was replaced by Nolan North (due to money or bungie cutting their losses, no one knows for sure) and as of now his voice is now the voice of Ghost. Nolan North is a vet video game voice actor who deserves all the respect in the world for all his work. At the end of the day  however he is not my Ghost, he is not the Ghost, and no amount of ‘ a better written story’ from the Taken King will change that. Maybe someday Dinklebot will return, but unlikely –  The age of Nolantron has begun.


GET HYPED: Destiny – The Taken King / Court of Oryx Reveal


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.
