A few quick deals for all you co-op lovers out there. Until Monday, July 25, you can pick up Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds for the 360, PAYDAY 2 for the Xbox One and 360, or Destiny: The Taken King for both the Xbox One and 360 at reduced prices.
In the States, the end of November marks the occasion for two things: the consumption of way too much food, and SALES SALES SALES! There are some choice Cyber Monday deals underway right now, but Microsoft offered up a few deals of their own on the digital versions of games like Destiny, Evolve, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime last week, and today is the last day you can enjoy them.
When I first started playing Destiny last year, I enjoyed my time with it but more often-than-not, I was let down by the experience. In the weeks leading up to Destiny 2.0 and the new DLC, The Taken King, I found myself getting excited to play Destiny again. Perhaps this would finally be the co-op shooter experience for which I was looking. While it still has its flaws, I can confidently say that it comes pretty close to being just that.
It's been teased and bandied about for some time now, and at long last, the biggest update to Destiny has arrived. All whopping 17+ Gb of it. This update undoubtedly includes much of the content for the Taken King expansion, which is due to arrive next week, but the big focus is the changes it makes to the game starting today. Let's review, shall we?
The new launch trailer for the upcoming DLC for Destiny titled The Taken King has been released and it looks glorious. Said to be the biggest expansion to date for Bungie's hit first person online shooter, fans could only sit back and watch the greatness unfold.
So if you’re like me and my co-op buddies Destiny’s newest DLC The Taken King which launches on September 15th was a day to be extremely excited about. A day that you knew would be spent with friends for hours. Well it looks like after an interview creative director Luke Smith had with IGN that is less the case. Reason being is that Destiny's new raid, King's Fall, won't be available when The Taken King launches. The interview goes on to say that Bungie has an idea of when the raid will launch but that it defiantly will not be on day one.
The first year of Destiny has been a rather bumpy road. There have been some good moments, like the content in the "House of Wolves" expansion, and bad, like having to level up all your gear again. Developer Bungie has been saying they've been listening to all the feedback, and it looks like they were telling the truth.
The one year anniversary of Destiny is fast approaching. Last year, we were pretty excited to see what all the game had in store for us. This year... well, we're a bit more tempered. There have been some highlights over the past year, but also a lot of missteps. Developer Bungie assures its community that it is listening and has some big changes around the bend.
