I’m playing a lot of Destiny lately, and today went adventuring on my first strike playlist. This is a shorthand for a set of hard missions the game sets up for a set of players. I have been reluctant to go on these missions because I’m sort of an asocial social gamer, but really enjoyed the games we played thorough, me and two other strangers. Getting over my initial anxiety about the multiplayer matchmaking was good for me and produced some fun times.
Also, I picked up a great bit of loot on the run, and learned that the so-called 1000-yard state special weapon really is all that.
