Destiny has come a long way from it’s original release in 2014, settling into arguably one of the most divisive games in the industry. I remember playing the original beta and thought this would end up becoming one of the best games I’d ever get to play. Although we all know how the mixed reception of the game had been received upon release. Destiny was never considered a “bad game” by any means n...[Read More]
First impressions are everything, especially in a huge RPG. So far I have sunk about 8 hours into Destiny 2 and in that time the game has made quite the impression. During the first several hours, Destiny 2 has managed to convince me that Bungie really did listen to their fans’ feedback.

Earlier this week, the beta for the highly anticipated Destiny 2 was released.

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.
