Last night, I watched my housemates try to clear the “Eye of a Gatelord” mission in Destiny on their PS4s. They couldn’t. Maybe they’re just not good at shooters in general. Maybe I’m just too good at the game.
The PS4 controller is certainly an improvement on the PS3 controller for two reasons:
- I don’t feel like I’m going to break the damn thing while using it and,
- the thumbsticks on those things is a vast improvement over the previous generation.
But, I picked it up and without too much fuss–or dropping the boss battle for that matter, and cleared it no problem. It’s amazing what you can do when you can circle-strafe.
So, when I woke up this morning to a bit of a snow day, I pushed a change for a client and then fired up the Xbox One… to play some Destiny.

I played through the Heroic Daily on “The Black Garden” at 30 and the Heroic Weekly on “Valus Tu’arc” at 30.
And that was it.
I suppose I could’ve gone on to play my other two characters, but there’s a point where the addiction and compulsion would return and I’m not quite sure I’m ready to return to that level of constant disappointment.
Ugh. I’m screwed to repeat this whole Destiny thing, aren’t I?
