After my initial reluctance to play through Old Russia for the fourth time I found myself genuinely enjoying Bungie’s new game Destiny. You can read my thoughts on my time on Earth and my frustrations with the social systems in last week’s review in progress. In this week’s I’ll talk about my impressions while traversing the Moon and Venus and knocking on the door of Mars.
Earlier this week Destiny officially released to tremendous commercial success. Lauded by Activision Blizzard as the biggest franchise launch yet in video game history, it achieved $500 million shipped on day one. These sales are to retailers and digital distributors not to the end users but it is pretty safe to bet at this point that Destiny is on a fast track to be Activision’s third billion dollar franchise joining Call of Duty and Skylanders.
