Aye Mak Sicur

Our repeated destination is revealed to be a Jjaro space station with the power to contain the destructive power of the Pfhor's Trih Xeem weapon and prevent the release of the terrible, unknowable and unpronounceable W'rkcacnter. Can Blackstar and Narcogen find and insert two uplink chips in order to save the universe?

Reflections On The Destiny Beta

Dumping on Story
I've seen this for Destiny as well as Halo before it... accusations of being silly, derivative, and obscure, and I don't really understand it. Some of it seems to come from those who either don't want any story in their shooters and so don't pay attention to it, or those who are used to the kind of depth you get in an RPG and are put off by things drawn with a broad brush. The Halo series supplemented its backstory with the novelizations, whereas Marathon and Myth used the in-game terminals and journal entries, respectively. I have high hopes that the Grimoire cards you get in-game and then view on Bungie.net will be the best of both worlds here, allowing those who want to explore the world in-depth a chance to do so without overburdening the game with backstory during gameplay or through traditional cutscenes.

ASE Destiny Beta Co-Op: The Devil's Lair Strike

See video
Strike: The Devil's Lair

We played co-op in the Destiny Beta! Join Blackstar and Narcogen as they go through each story mission, plus the strike, and point out the golden chest locations. (These may change before final release, though.)

This time, we enlist the help of Kermit7 to take on Sepiks Prime in the Devil's Lair strike. Some notes: Narcogen and Blackstar's audio is being recorded separately in Skype, so Kermit7's audio is unfortunately missing from most of this recording.

During the first defensive stand at the mesh generator, one failed attempt has been removed from the video in the interest of brevity.

In the interest of privacy, various XBL alerts featuring usernames of players not appearing in this video have been redacted.

No need to wait for strange aeons for Blackstar and Narcogen to die, even in a level with hardly any enemies! In this case, we're bringing the plot of Marathon Infinity to a close by completing the activation of the dormant S'pht AI, Thoth, so he/she/it can call in the S'pht'Kr cavalry to kick Pfhor butt.
