PS3 Game: Destiny

Firstly, I would like to apologise in advance for my lack of blog posts as the long, long, long awaited release of Destiny happened yesterday. So I rushed home from work to find this waiting for me - YES I am a full on gamer!

I had already taken part in the Beta of Destiny so I was well prepared for this release. Unfortunately Bungie did not allow the transfer of your Beta characters into the real game so you had to start from scratch again. However what took me 3 days in the Beta, took me about 5 hours in the real game as I knew what I was doing and where I was going.

I'm currently at Level 7 and I'm exactly where I ended on the Beta when they closed it. So onwards into the game is all new for me :) 

For those of you who don't game or storyline - a quick version of the story - a 'being' (big round ball shape) known as the traveller arrived in our solar system and terraformed all the planets so they were liveable. Humanity took to the stars and seeded the solar system. Building libraries, and temples etc on all the planets. But unknown to everyone (although I bet the traveller knew) he was being hunted (as he had been for centuries) by a 'darkness' and this darkness finds him and basically destroys and kills all the beautiful buildings the humans built on all the planets and the most of the humans too. The traveller flees to Earth and (not too sure what happens) he fights off the darkness for now and magically protects 1 last city on Earth - where the Guardians live (that's us and what we're called in Destiny) - the traveller also created 'Ghost' little triangle-looking robots to guide and help us. It's our job to fight the darkness and bring back the 'Golden Age' we once knew ... 

I wrote all that from memory but from what I can remember that's a pretty good analysis :)

I have the PS3 version (as you can see in above picture) there is also the PS4 version, and the game is available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One as well.

The PS3 version cost me: £35.00 but I believe its not retailing at: £44.33 - that's Amazon - you might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.

I also purchased the official strategy guide - however I tend not to read it until I've completed the game or really, really stuck at a part and need some pointers. This was £16.34 on Amazon :) Link is here: - this was the hardback copy, there is a cheaper paperback copy available.

I highly recommend getting the game if you haven't already. If you like shooters with a bit of magic mixed in - then its definitely for you. The graphics and areas are stunning - a lot of time and money has gone into making this game.

Let me know if your on PS3 Destiny and I'll add you on PSN.

Happy Gaming
