Latest Destiny Articles

So I have written about two articles discussing recent events in Destiny 2.

The first one here is about the weekend event where The Almighty explored in a blaze of glory. It was a rather important event in accordance to both the lore and concept. It was a great thing to see but I have some reservations about it. You can see that one here.

But due to this being a 2 for 1 special, I am going to include my second article here about the start of the Season of the Arrivals and my first impressions of the start of said season. I do have to catch up on some elements but it’s so far a really strong start to a season that will follow to the next major expansion. You can read that one here.

I know, I said last week that this one would be a bit more laid back, but I have failed to do so.

I had a lot more to write about this topic, but my writing was already 6 pages long. Talking about lore and other addictive practices would have turned this into an all out dissertation. I’m usually cool with that, but it’s been a really rough week of me forgetting what day it is. So please hit the link up top and let me know what you think.

Years ago I used to wake up at the crack of noon, grab myself a drink from the local convenience store, and binge the hell out of World of Warcraft (WoW).  I’m not talking one or two hour sessions, I’m talking about days!  I would play WoW like it was my job.  I spent a good part of my 20’s leveling and getting raid ready, year after year.  It wasn’t until the Cataclysm expansion released that my life in WoW became somewhat stagnant.

I can’t blame Blizzard at that time, but today I very well could say that thing.  Cataclysm was just the start of the inevitable downfall of one of my most favorite (and most played) games of all time.  How often I dream about going back to the game but I just cannot seem to attach myself to what is essentially an abusive relationship, especially the state that the game is in now.
