Why I love Sony for Buying Bungie

Greetings, Guardians!

“It’s been busy!” — cosmoblue86 has spent 880 hours in Destiny 2 since it was added to Sony PS+ in September 2018. Don’t check my KD though! It’s absolutely embarrasing, but I have a ton of fun nonetheless.

It’s complicated, but the Destiny 2 flame is burning more than ever!

Getting back into DestinyTheGame

Not gonna lie, I did the jumpy part to get through the secret passage that leads AROUND the massive spaceship only a few times. Most of the time, I just waited in front of the hangar door until one of my fellow guardians opened the door from the inside. Yet another great example, how Bungie designs co-op quests for players at different skill levels while still having fun together.
The verticality in the Presage quest is absolutely insane and a ton of fun, provided you have the right equipment and have mastered that fricking triple-jump on your Hunter!

A Master Class in Quest Design

Half-way through the mission, you have to fight your way out of a massive trash compressor. Sounds familiar? Yep, but this time you’re not just holding your breath while watching, it is YOU trying to find a way out before being squashed, or killed by a horde of exploding screeps.
No dice that I could have taken a screenshot during the final boss fight. This is the final scene where the spooky story of the Glykon concludes with the exotic weapon reward hanging underneath a not-so-lucky Guardian. You have to run the exotic quest several times to discover all secrets, logbook entries, and death traps. Trust me, even after ten runs it is exciting AF.
