Yesterday afternoon during the Destiny 2 livestream, Activision and Bungie showed the world what was to come next to the world of Destiny. During the gameplay premiere live stream, the world got to see what was in store for guardians. Players do not have to wait much longer for additional information regarding Destiny 2. At E3 2017, Bungie will show gamers new features that we not shown during th...[Read More]
When Destiny was originally released in 2014, I was very much aboard the “Hype Train” as some may call it. I picked it up thinking it would become my new favorite game as it was looking to be a perfect hybrid of the RPG-ness of Borderlands (my favorite franchise) and the cinematic storytelling of Halo. Unfortunately, once the game released, I started to realize just how disappointed I was. Reviews...[Read More]
Bungie’s first gameplay trailer at the Destiny 2 Reveal shows just how much they have been listening to the fans. Best part about sequels in video games is just how much feedback developers have to use and how they implement that into future titles.
Well we all knew a sequel was inevitable for the extremely popular Destiny. It’s funny looking back at its rocky and controversial launch back in 2014. A lot of us, myself included, were severely disappointed with the product we originally received. I heavily emphasize the word “disappointed,” because while I was a little let down, there was no denying we had something pretty special here. I...[Read More]
Destiny is one of the most expensive games of our time, proving that the budget of a project will not reflect the final product. However, that business model wasn’t designed for a rigid game, but a flexible one, capable of expansions, patches, events, and sequels. This is what led to the critically acclaimed Taken King expansion, which added some much needed story to the game, while also showing o...[Read More]
Here at Marooners’ Rock, we’ve been spending some quality time with Destiny again. Face it, put Game of Thrones themes into a science fiction shooter and you have my attention, even if I never was a fan of Destiny as a whole, but we’ll save that for the full review. In other news, the latest raid has turned out to be one of the best, filled with crazy encounters and epic boss enc...[Read More]
Bungie recently held a Call to Arms weekend in conjunction with Stack Up to help find the military’s biggest Destiny fans. Their goal with this search was to find “deserving active duty or retired veterans with an honorable discharge” (they admit on their site that “deserving” is a subjective term), a group which they call the Air Assaults.
Amidst the Schwarzenegger v. EMA/ESA court battle, there is another battle that has been going on. That would be the battle between gaming industry giants, EA and ActiVision. Slightly less direct, but just as well known, EA and ActiVision have been battling it out through the use of press releases and interviews for some time now. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me weigh you ...[Read More]
After participating in the multi-player beta for Halo: Reach, I wanted nothing with the game. Now, thanks to the song “Mind Heist” from the Inception trailers, and the awesomeness of Transcendence Films, I want to play Reach right this second.
Today, for all you Halo fans, is Bungie Day. The creators of the Halo series, Bungie, have an affinity for the number 7. Since today is 7/7/09 that makes it Bungie Day! If you own Halo 3 and have an Xbox Live account, you can go into the special playlist “Bungie vs. The World” so that you can be matched up with some of the Bungie staff. If you win the round with them, you will be award...[Read More]
