T’other day, Bungie did a big stream thing of the new content coming in April to Destiny.
Before you all slink away in disgust that this is one of those ‘reviews’ of what amounted to about 10 minutes of very stage-managed gameplay interspersed with awkward conversations with devs to fill the time, fear not – this isn’t an article about Destiny. Well OK: it sort of is in one capacity, but let me explain.
So this new Destiny content is out in April. That’s a whopping 17 months after the original release date, and it’s by no means the last content coming. And the way Destiny plays, it’s basically engineered to create months of replay by design.
Yet as soon as the news was out, many forums were full of people complaining that it wasn't enough, that it was too little too late and people had moved on, that they’d mislaid their PS4 in the meantime and now had to use a biscuit tin painted black as a console and why wasn’t this Bicco-2000X compatible and so on.
