Having missed the PlayStation Plus signup opportunity for the Destiny alpha, I had resigned myself to waiting for the beta taking place next month. The email I received stating I had gotten in was, therefore, a complete surprise. Rushing over to my PS4, I immediately downloaded the early version of this MMO shooter and spent a good chunk of the weekend enjoying it. What I found ended up surprising me, delighting me, disappointing me and impressing me all in one giant package. Let’s take it by each separate reaction and go over my time with the Destiny alpha.
One of my least favorite things about gaming on a mobile device, like an iPhone or iPad, are the inclusions of in-app-purchases. As such, when I saw TownCraft for iOS proudly proclaim that contained no such transactions, it attracted my attention. Not sure what I might be getting into from there, I found myself playing a game with one such a deft touch, I had be impressed.
