If any of you have read my various Destiny articles, you might have guessed that I have a love-hate relationship with the game. Well, you might walk away with more of the hate side of my feelings, but, I do LOVE the feel of the game. I stopped playing it for a while because I had nothing else to do in it. I don’t play the Crucible, and my son got tired of that part of the game, too, and I don’t do my own match-making in order to play the harder aspects of the game, so . . . there’s nothing to do in Destiny after a certain point for players like me. And guess what, despite what the trailer may have said or implied, House of Wolves only makes matters worse. You cannot level up without doing your own match making/team gathering. At least that’s what is known right now.
I had recently started playing again (and my son followed suit), gearing up for the new House of Wolves dlc that was to come out. I started a new character, too, leveling her up to 29. We stopped leveling gear up since we didn’t want to waste our materials prior to the dlc. So, my son has played today’s Destiny dlc a while this morning, checking out the new social area in The Reef, and doing a number of the dlc’s missions and strikes. The new crucible matches, called the Trials of Osiris, are only available Friday through Monday, basically, so he has to wait for those. He was able to get through the whole new story in a matter of hours.
