More News On Bungie/Marty Fallout, And Activision Is Still A Cesspool

New details come from the Bungie/Marty fallout.

Hello everyone, let me start with saying that I was always on Marty’s side, even when everything was hush-hush. I’m a trust the man, not the corporation type of guy. An article posted lately seems to bring to light some things that were rumors or even denied outright in conjunction with Marty O’Donnell being fired from Bungie. It’s a good read check it out but in a nutshell:

Why Are Gaming Wiki’s Like Destiny’s So Useless?

This is something that has bothered me for a good while, mostly because of how prevalent the subpar quality is.  I’m talking about the state of useless wiki’s for games.

Why are Gaming Wiki’s so Useless?

I don’t want to narrow it down to one thing, which is why I have to say general uselessness when it comes to information.  This wiki is suppose to be an end all location for any information on a subject, edited and based on many people using it. Duh. We all know that, yet here they are.

Part of it for me is just how general they seem to be.  For example, let’s say I want to look up a specific enemy in a game, I don’t want to just see, “This is the bad guy, you shoot him.”

Oh my God! Thanks for clearing that up I had no idea.  Such wiki much info.  Just for fun, how about:

Bungie Changes Most Everything about Destiny

Hello everyone, sorry this is a short entry today but that’s because I would like you to head on over to this reddit megathread and check out all the changes coming to Destiny in about 1 month. Bungie has basically completely remade the game.  There should be some video and Game Informer links in there well worth a read but in a nutshell:

  • Light levels are gone, it’s just exp to level 40 now.
  • Brand new “planet” in the form on a huge Hive Spaceship.
  • Int. Dsp. Str. now have a tier’d approach.  I saw armor in multiplayer that had stats: Int 9 Str 9
  • Some (all?) armor can flip Str and Dsp
  • New armor perks like “3x Arc”  for triple arc burn damage when activated.
  • Lots of quest lines.  Included are subjobs.
  • Marks as we know change.
  • Class items for rep gone.
  • Nolan North completely replaces Peter Dinklage as Ghost.

Go check it out, I still am!

Multiplayer Is Awesome, It’s You Who Sucks.

I’m calling out a small minority of players here

I’m writing about Mass Effects multiplayer (and multiplayer in general) after releasing this video yesterday.  And yes, while single-player zealots may be very loud and whiney, they are a small sect of gaming fans.  Do not be fooled by their constant complaining, how at every news article written they repost their same tired arguments of why multiplayer is bad in games.  I feel bad because they don’t realize that what they are complaining about is something even deeper.

Bungie Bans Cheaters In Destiny

I meant to write earlier but I got sidetracked recording a bunch of stuff, so just a quick note here that makes me happy.

Bungie finally started banning multiplayer cheaters.  Full article here.

We started with a look at the most notorious cheaters that had been reported by other players. After a cross-reference against our own player-data, we gave the Banhammer a mighty swing. Contained in its blast radius were hundreds of people who have manipulated network traffic. If you don’t know what that means, we love you. Never change.

Thank you Bungie.
