We know where it comes from at the following link.

We can only guess at what the process has been like for Bungie in the years they’ve been working on Destiny.  There’s sure to be a lot of stories that would generate sympathy in critical circles and further devotion among the fans.  But there are no doubt also troubling things we could learn from the sausage making, and plenty enough of it to put us off our games…for a while, at least.  For now, there’s just no stopping; bounties and heroics won’t clear themselves, and there’s always more Hive in the cave.

 

We’re back on our feet again at the following link.

We’re not entirely sure now what Destiny means to us as players, or what it might end up meaning to the game playing public at large.  There are a lot of opinions about what the game has and hasn’t done right, and there are a lot of emotions invested in those opinions.  We’re still trying to muscle through the story, such as it is; we’re hard-bitten guardians slowly fighting our way through the various ruined landscapes of the solar system.  We might be able to offer a consensus in a few days, but it’s a frustrating game to think and to talk about, even while it’s perfectly entertaining to play.

We take a break from infighting and the dispensing of career advice during the second hour to share some time with Casper Van Est of Double Dutch games, maker of SpeedRunners, the finest friendship destroyer I’ve played in ages.

 

We’re on the mend at the following link.

Scott has, as usual, returned home from PAX bearing the gift of pox and illness for us all.  There are nearly as many strains of plague attacking his system as there were indie games and discussion panels for him to lost track of.  He had a swell time, allegedly, so I’m sure it was worth it in the end.  He has also returned having borne witness to a long list of desirable and sadly far-distant games, most of which we’d love to own and cherish right this very minute.  Until we can, rambling stories from a sick man will have to do.

 

We have a different point of view at the following link.

There was most definitely a show last week, but there was no Scott to host it or to help it on its way from the studio to the internet.  He’s back now, and all is right with the world, so we apologize for the lateness of the post and the strangeness of the episode it contains.
