A day of one with the Alpha (now with *lots* of Images!) (Destiny)

Or in plain – less artsy speak – I got to play the Alpha for a full 12 hours and change, and was able to make "leak quality" images in the process without violating any NDAs - like some sort of Jobless Boss! (Oxymoron?)

Fortunately I was able find a friend of a friend type deal to play the alpha in my own abode. I found a four or fiveish of ghosts (hidden both in the wilds and even in the tower), the already mentioned soccer/football, and even a few other things.

The above is found at the end of the fallen coast.Now you know Kerm.

Part of the fun of games – at least for me, is breaking them. What better place to do such then? After all It’s not like the Guardians can *oof*...

...That’s right guys and gal(s?), the mystery has only begun. If you go deep enough you will find the dreaded 10 second turn back indicator. Failure to do so creates a very cool effect - you go blind. Isn’t that NEAT! /s

By the time the countdown gets to one you can’t see anything – then you die. Geez Bungie.

Did I mention I love exploring? How much do I love exploring? I have 1000 GS on Mass Effect One love exploring. There was nothing but rock in Mass Effect One. Destiny less so.

So guess my sheer delight when I found this.

Gotta say... seeing this place for my self, dead bodies and all - was a pretty big "Wow/Holy Sh*t" Moment. It was dark when I first found it and it was very very windy. Man... we got beat. HARD.

Is it wrong that I want more of these environmental story elements that make me exclaim as described above?

Which reminds me - Would it really be so hard to have a flashlight that *I* can toggle? Or do I have to customize a switch for my Ghost so I can do that? Getting to that part was really really dark. Had to feel my way through at some parts.

Speaking of customization -

I was hoping for something abit more - controllable and less set, but C'est la vie.

Alright - less talking - MOAR PICTURES!

^One of these days this kind of thing will be the game, not part of it.

^Another piece of an already collected puzzle. Presuming I didn't mix my photos, it looks pretty cool too.

^HA! ... but on that note...

^Who broke the cheese /class

^So much Tease from the alpha. These are 9-12 levels with few rares.

^Its amazing what a little spec and bump can do. Or roughness and gloss. Wa ev.
