It’s probably not a surprise to most of you that I am a Destiny-aholic. Destiny was the very first FPS (first person shooter) that I actually took interest in. The mechanics of the game brought me in, the lore (yes there is a story) hooked me. I read countless Grimoire cards as I acquired them and fell in love with what the 10 year plan of Destiny could bring.  So far I have not been too disapointed. I have played the game a shit ton (roughly 2000 hours of game time) and I have yet to run out of content. I will agree that some of the content has gotten a bit old in the past month, but I still don’t have a 320 Guardian and Trials of Osiris draws me in every weekend. I am however, extremely pumped to receive this April update.

Bungie themselves have acknowledged the fact that there has been a bit of lull in the game, and they have even encouraged players to go and play other games. Probably one of the smartest things to come out of Bungie headquarters in the last month or so was the quote from Eric Osborne (@UrkMcGurk) “I’m going to play other games!” is such an odd thing to read as a threat. Play tons of games. Games are great. I will make recommendations!”.   Brilliant I say, if Bungie encourages us to play other games they have to make less content to fill the gaps. Which in my opinion means they can take more time to make better quality content. One thing we need to remember is that no other console based game has done what Bungie is doing. They have paved the road for games like the Division and I assure you that the team over at Division headquarters have been watching and listening to the Destiny community just as hard, or harder then Bungie.

Today at 2 pm eastern, Bungie will hold the second of three streams where they will be revealing parts of the new content. The first one featured the new activities, today’s will feature the new stuff we can get, which will be my focus for the rest of the article, and the last one will be the new background improvements that they are making to the game (no link yet).

 

Which brings me to the Glowing Shaders for Guns question.

Now I know it is hard to read but I have done my best to enhance it for you. The highlighted text reads “Activates a Red Chroma glow.” A small thing I know but an awesome thing at the same time. “COD already has weapon skins!” was the comment from my 13 yr old son, who plays both Destiny and BO3 on a regular basis. To him it is something that should have already been in the game, to me it shows me that the developers have moved away from adjusting all of
NewContent2 the little things to make this game run and have had time to branch out into making the fun things work, like Glowing Shaders for Guns! I do not expect it to stop there, I would imagine that the new gear will have glowing shaders (as shown in the picture) and we even see “Taken” skinned Guardians, I can’t wait to find out what that is all about. These are amazing, small, things to bring to this game. It shows that Bungie is still confident in their plan and though they have pushed back the release of the “official” Destiny 2, they are getting closer to the game that they want it to be.

I for one am very excited to see what today’s Twitch stream brings to light! Don’t forget to tune in at 2 pm EDT.
