Anybody else read these books? Absolute shame the second book in the trilogy absolutely annihilated (lulz) all of the goodwill and interest the first book created. I bailed before book three and I don’t feel like I’m missing much. Wonder how the movie will pan out.
Remember that sweet post about Destiny 1 art (you should, as it’s the post RIGHT BEFORE THIS ONE). Well, guess what? As Destiny 2 follows Destiny 1, so does the D2 art post follow (take a peep at Kotaku’s massive dump here). At this point, I’ve only explored maybe 30% of the game but so far I can easily say the art and design surpasses the first one in almost all aspects. I can’t speak to the lore yet (let’s see if there’s an equivalent to the Hive Book of Sorrows aka one of the coolest things I’ve ever read associated with a video game) but I’ve high hopes.
INFINITY GEMS (they aren’t Infinity stones, you hacks. Gems. They’re gems.)
Be still my black, black heart. Except…I’ve aged out of fighting games. I no longer have the patience nor the time to memorize combos and ultimate attacks for 30 characters at a clip. My muscle memory is shot! I mean, i’ll still give you a run for your $$$ if you want to break out Tekken (3 OR 5) or UFC Undisputed or Soul Caliber or WWE Here Comes the Pain or any SF2 iteration or World Heroes or Samurai Showdown…but I pretty much drew the line at MvC3 (or rather had the line drawn FOR me, as I I would get absolutely butchered on the regular)
Now get off my lawn and leave me to my Witcher 3 wanderings. Get too close and I’ll run you through. *shakes canesword*
Do I want to play this game? I don’t even know what this game is. Interest, though? PIQUED. Trailer below the fold!
The game (of thrones) we all need.
Say what you will about the (ed.note: absolutely horrible) Silver Dust economy, introduced in Destiny’s latest/last expansion, Rise of Iron, but it DID introduce a way to customize your favorite guns. A pain in the ass, incredibly grind-y way to customize, but dress ’em up regardless. What I didn’t realize is that there would be an ongoing rollout of ornaments for Legendary weapons but this week’s Bungie update set me straight with sick new looks for Bad JuJu, Red Death and Thorn coming by the end of the year (with Black Spindle and The Last Word still to come!). Thanks, Bungo, for not letting me move on to ostensibly better games (I’m looking at you, Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3). GRIND FOREVER *clap clap clapclapclap* GRIND FOREVER *clap clap clapclapclap*
