I play Destiny every day. This past weekend I even started an Alt character. Now I have my level 27 Hunter as well as a level 5 Titan. Whenever I have a bit of free time I am in there playing. Kids taking a bath? I can do a story mission. 30 minutes until I have to leave for work? I can knock out a bounty or two. The Seahawks are playing? I’ll just play Destiny on my Vita all afternoon while we watch the game. Playing games is my job and so kara sees this a lot. I’m always playing something but even she commented the other day that I seem a little obsessed with Destiny. I can’t deny it either. This game has its hooks in me and I can’t stop.
I got pulled in to help beat the final boss in the Vault of Glass last week and had a blast. It was just the final Atheon fight but it was like nothing else I’d seen in the game and I loved it. I’d like to do the entire raid tonight but I’m gonna need a team to help me do it. If you have some experience with the Vault and you don’t mind helping a newbie through it, I’d love to give it a go. My plan is to log on tonight at 9:00 PST and just open my fireteam to friends. I figure the first five folks that join will be my Vault of Glass crew. My PS4 handle is GabePA so feel free to shoot me an invite. Assuming I can get a group together I’ll try and stream it on my Twitch channel.
There’s some stuff coming out soon that I’m pretty excited for. I don’t know if any of this stuff will break my Destiny obsession but I’m looking forward to it all the same.
I don’t normally play games like this but I sunk a ton of hours in to Civ 5. I never played any of the previous games but I got hooked on the last one. The idea that now I can do all that shit in space with aliens has me super excited. It comes out tomorrow and I leave for Australia on Monday so I’m thinking this will be the perfect game to burn up some hours on that ridiculously long flight.
My oldest son is 10 now and he loves Halo 4. It was the first Halo game he played and it really captured his imagination. The whole idea of Spartans just got a hold of his ten year old brain and would not let go. I’ll never forget driving home from seeing Pacific Rim with him and he started telling me why he was pretty sure a Spartan could beat a Kaiju. He’s never played any of the other ones though because they either came out before he was even born or when he was just a baby. So now I have an opportunity to play back through all those games again with him as my co-op partner. I don’t know, I think that’s gonna be kinda special. It looks like this should land on the 11th of Nov. and I can’t wait.
I’ve always really enjoyed the multiplayer component of the CoD games. It’s generally a game I play with my friends here at the office but this generation we’re all split up across different consoles. My fear is that if I get it for the PS4, which is what I prefer these days I’ll be playing it alone as most of the other folks in the office have all chosen the Xbox One. I also don’t know if it will be enough to drag me away from Destiny. I guess we’ll see when it drops on Nov. 4th.
Farcry 4 and Assassin's Creed Unity are also in November. I’m not a Dragon Age fan but Inquisition comes out in November as well. It’s a pretty ridiculous month in terms of games. When all the dust settles in December I wonder if I’ll still be collecting Relic Iron and yelling at the Cryptarch.
In unrelated news the limited edition Carl pin goes on sale this afternoon at 2:00 PST. This is a run of just 1500 pins so you’ll want to jump on this one. Page two of Silverside should hit the site very shortly, we just have some technical difficulties.
