Destiny 2’s familiarity is essential, not disappointing

The legend of Destiny is a tale of extremes. The game navigated the balance between dedicated adoration and overwhelming vitriol with a surprising amount of grace. Like pineapple on pizza or the Dallas Cowboys, it is impossible to pass Destiny by with nonchalance. Whether it buried its hooks deep into your soul or completely missed its mark, the game made a monumental mark on the gaming landscape and altered what we thought was possible from a console shooter. But this leaves its sequel in a precarious position.

3 ways Destiny 2 can bring back burned players

After a marketing leak courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Gamestop, Destiny 2 was finally revealed. The most obvious sequel in existence pulled back the curtain on its reimagined story via a cheeky trailer featuring Nathan Fillion’s Cayde 6. With a welcome emphasis on story being a response to much of the criticism of the original, it is fair to wonder what form the sequel will take.

The only thing that rivals the ire that season passes draw is, arguably, Nintendo. And luckily for us, these two juggernauts of vitriol crossed paths when Nintendo announced a season pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Destiny: Rise of Iron Review

Pay the iron price

 

As Destiny: Rise of Iron launches the third year of Destiny content, it is incredible to fathom the path that the game has taken to reach this point. Despite lukewarm initial reception that has dogged the game since release, Destiny has persevered thanks to passionate fans and incredible core gameplay mechanics. Rise of Iron provides a continuation of the progress made in last year’s The Taken King, but does little more than add sand into the Destiny sandbox. While it remains to be seen how long the content in the expansion will satiate the rabid community, what is here is a welcome addition to the Destiny universe.
