Video game review: Destiny
The game became extremely repetitive after just a few hours of playing. There was no variety in the gameplay and it felt like I was doing the same thing over and over.
It was also impossible to play a player vs. player match because the games aren’t balanced. This means that if you’re a new player, you’ll have to play against people who have already beat the game, which means they have much better gear and can win much easier.
One cool part about the game is that Peter Dinklage is the voice actor for your ghost, which is a small robot that follows you around and helps you throughout the game. Disappointingly, he sounds really bored and his tone of voice carries a “can I get paid already” kind of feeling.
The story for the game explains how you are one of the “Guardians of the Light,” and your enemies are known as “The Darkness.” As cheesy as that sounds, I liked it. The “Light battling The Darkness” made Destiny feel like more of a sci-fi fantasy game and less of a war-based, blow-everything-up kind of game.
I loved jumping into Destiny, but by the end, playing the game took more labor and less fun. I would give Destiny a 7 out of 10 because the game had great potential, but the repetition and unbalanced player vs. player greatly took away from the experience.by
A Cure for Weirdness
The first thought that popped into my head after watching A Cure For Wellness was ¨what the heck did I just watch?¨I first wanted to see the film directed by Gore Verbinski after I finished binge watching Shutter Island and The Babadook. I wanted something that would send chills up my spine but wasn’t so demonic that I wouldn’t be able to sleep for the next week.
Roth carves new controversy
“In a galaxy powered by the current, everyone has a gift.” Carve the Mark is Veronica Roth’s newest YA novel, her first since the controversial final installment of the New York Times best-selling Divergent series. Boldly marketed as being the perfect read for “fans of Divergent and Star Wars,” it’s safe to say that Roth’s newest novel has a lot to live up to.
