Destiny

In Orbit #45: The Future is in Sight

The Dawning is coming with more quality of life improvements, updated strikes, and changes. In the latest TWAB, other changes have been made — preparing us for this event. Changes to matchmaking settings seems to directly respond to the concerns the community clamored for recently, with a stronger bias on connection quality, and less emphasis on skill matching. China recently passed a new law that forces online games to publicly announce item probabilities. We discuss the impact that may have on future US legislation or company policy changes. Vicarious Visions is officially announced as a partner with Bungie & High Moon Studios to work on Destiny content Jason Schreier from Kotaku reported this in September.

We discuss the importance of this partnership, and why Bungie decided to announce this. Interestingly, we are starting to see some of the fruits of this partnership in The Dawning as a Titan Armor set was designed by Priscilla Landerer from High Moon Studios. We also give our impressions of the latest Iron Banner with the new matchmaking ruleset. David gives his impressions of this week’s Trials Of Osiris tournament in Shores Of Time, and we bring in your questions in Messages From The Reef!

Hosts

Born in the 80's, given a NES and Gameboy at a young age, Jorge grew up in gaming and experienced gaming in many cultures due to moving around the world. Now in New Jersey, an older Jorge continues his journey in gaming. Adobo included.

Been gaming since birth and he's not gonna stop now. Call of Duty was the first shooter that pulled him in and his love for shooters has developed into a love of Destiny. He's now a Guardian, proud to protect the traveler and slay my foes in Crucible.

A former professional cyclist, gaming has always been Jordan's preferred method of stress-relief. Traditionally an action RPG'er, he has recently been ensnared in the modern MMO/RPG/FPS genre, and talks about it as a host of In Orbit.
