Vague Spoilers ahead (Destiny)

Gotta say, the momentum of this story is really hampered by the constant threat of network errors.


I heard it's good though. Like, actual character shit is happening.

It’s… fine.

They could have used a lot more of that “show, don’t tell” axiom.

For example, they try to build these deep connections with ghosts that should be really low hanging fruit, but they just need to show it rather than belaboring the point with words that have not been earned.

Zavala’s character has a crisis of faith that would make sense if the rest of the game wasn’t constantly proving that it isn’t warranted. Thus we have a character behaving out of character with a new voice actor that just kind of takes you out of it. I think they could have pulled off the the whole crisis with some better writing, but it just feels off.

Cayde and Crow talking is wonderful. They aren’t overwritten and there’s some poignant stuff in there.

I can talk more later, but those are my initial thoughts.
