It took until 12.00 BST for me to realise just how much I did not want to be in work that day. I was three and a half an hours in with five and a half hours to go. I whispered to myself, ‘Destiny really is awaiting.’
To me, Destiny is an mmos, a massively multiplayer online something – which I much prefer to Bungie’s self coined ‘shared-world shooter’. It is Bungie’s first new IP since Halo graced Xbox and PC in 2001. It is essentially Borderlands meets Halo with Peter Dinklage and
moon wizards. And I care for non of them.
So why am I so excited?
Maybe it is the lack of games I have for my ps4. Maybe it is because I am very unfamiliar with, and quite intimidated by, mmos and am therefore excited by this strange beast. Maybe it is because work is kind of dull.
Whatever it is, it is damn exciting. Now excuse me as I rush home, probably to find a launch-day update waiting for me. (Edit: Of course there was an update.)
