This is a repost from our second channel. Back when Taken King came out, we had our monetization suspended for 3 months so started posting everything on our second channel, GLPtv. Chances are you might have seen it there, but if you didn't it's because we never were able to post here on the main channel. Felt like the perfect time with "Rise of Iron" coming out tomorrow!
Destiny has proven to be an enigma. On the one hand, it is widely acknowledge as a disappointment. It's storytelling was stale and boring. Content was limited, and you often find yourself grinding the same missions over and over again. On the other hand, it's still one of the most loved and popular games of the past year. It's game mechanics are amazing, and it's lore shows a lot of promise.
With the Taken King, Bungie promised to make major improvements, and give the fans what they want. They promised that the story would be deeper this time. Taken King delivers for the most part. The storytelling is better here, and the characters are more alive. It helps that there are some excellent cutscenes this time around. The boss battles feel much more varied and not as repetitive. This is a very enjoyable game movie in my opinion. The only thing that holds it back is that it ultimately a side story, and a lead up to the upcoming Raid. This doesn't have the grand scope that a main game would. All in all, we think you'll enjoy the story. It's short; it only took 4 hours to complete. But just in those 4 hours, you get 10 times the story you get in 15 hours of the main game.
As always, we used important gameplay, relevant dialogue and all cutscenes to make one fluid cinematic experience. We hope you enjoy!
