We’re continuing our celebration of the Destiny 2 Beta and the upcoming release of Destiny 2 on September 6 with another video episode featuring gameplay breakdown.
This time, Tee takes you into the Crucible’s Control, a mode of Player v Player (PvP) where two teams battle for control of three designated zones on a map. This breakdown also doubles as side-by-side comparison between Destiny and the upcoming Destiny 2.
Want to see more gameplay from us? Let us know what you think at 703.791.1701 (reachable through WhatsApp) or podcast (at) happyhourfromthetower (dot) com. We’d love to hear from you!
Want to know where to find us on PlayStation Network…
Okay, I know it’s Summer Solstice and that joke didn’t even make sense, but when you get to chasing the Agent of the Nine every week, you get a little loopy. So, here we are with some summertime iced tea and chasing Exotics. Let’s see what Xur has for us this week!
This weekend, Xur is hanging out in the Tower, with his buddy, the Speaker (presumably for one of the last times ever). Here’s what he has available to Guardians.
Heart of the Praxic Fire (Warlock chest) – 13 Strange Coins
Monte Carlo (Auto rifle) – 23 Strange Coins
Legacy Engram (Body armour) – 29 Strange Coins
He also has these weapon bundles:
Monte Carlo and Royal Flush – 30 Strange Coins, 25 Silver Dust
Red Death and Steel Witch – 30 Strange Coins, 25 Silver Dust
Monte Carlo originated as a Playstation exclusive, and its featured power is that it grants quicker melee cool down. From what we’ve been reading, auto rifles may not be the #1 choice of all Guardians. Also, apparently, no one but me runs around punching everything. (After a long travel week, you can bet I’ll be doing that tonight!)
Thanks to the folks across the pond at The Sun for this week’s information.
Episode #003 of Happy Hour from the Tower: A Destiny Podcast was not supposed to happen for another week but let’s be honest— Bungie had a pretty jam packed week last week and we needed to get back to the Tower and talk about it.
What a week, indeed!
00:00 — Introduction
How about those new drop-in’s?
This is so NOT a weekly podcast…
…but HOLY HANNAH IN A HELICOPTER, Bungie is keeping us busy!
2:05 — The Age of Triumph: Week One
So what do we think?
Nick’s got some catching up to do…
What is up with that “From the Beginning” accomplishment?!
Tee sums up the Age of Triumph.
Brandon is closing in to the coveted 400 Light Level with his Huntress after five days. Five. Days.
Episode #002 of Happy Hour from the Tower: A Destiny Podcast is going “Cabals Deep” into what Bungie is calling their “Victory Lap” prior to the release of Destiny 2. Age of Triumph is a new record book—the biggest Bungie has ever released—and Tee, Nick, and Brandon are nostalgically looking ahead to what’s in store.
Welcome to Episode #001 of Happy Hour from the Tower: A Destiny Podcast. This is the first episode of a passion podcast featuring Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks. It’s three guys who just love the game and ant to share that with you. This is the “Meet the Guardians” episode where Tee, Nick, and Brandon give you a lowdown on who they are, how they play, and what they are looking to accomplish with this brand new podcast.
00:00 — Introduction
Once again? But this is our debut episode.
Happy (Belated) Birthday, Brandon Kelly!
Commit now, retcon later.
2:00 — What am I listening to?
It’s all Tee’s fault, starting with bad assumptions…
If you’re looking for an in-depth, hardcore, all-about-getting-to-the-Lighthouse Destiny podcast, we got bad news for you…
