So…the Bungie Weekly Update was released yesterday, 1/21/16.
And that’s about all you can say about it…it was released. There was high anticipation for this update, built up by Bungie itself. They went dark from the end of December through yesterday. After Bungie announced there would no no DLC until Destiny 2, we were all worried. We were worried that we spent so much time in this game and the company behind it seemed to have lost faith, desire, or both to deliver. We were assured that while no DLC would come out, that they would have world events sporadically thrown in that would assuage our desires for new content.
Then Bungie dropped “Crimson Days” on us, releasing the week of Valentine’s Day. I know I run the risk of sounding like a spoiled brat, but so be it. While I’m sure work went into “Crimson Days”, I’m not so sure it will do much to quell the need for new content even from the most casual of players.
It just feels like Bungie isn’t trying anymore…what happened to the creators of Halo?! What happened to this game that was hyped up so much that we were foaming at the mouth?
SRL was good because it was different. It introduced a new aspect into the game that was fun and took us away from point and shoot. Crimson Days is just a repeat of other events that have been released, only with a splash of red overcoat so it’s “different”.
Sure, I will probably play during the event, but really only because the time I’ve spent in the game now is too much of an investment to just let it die. However; there are so many things coming out this year that will quickly pull me away if “Crimson Days” is the best the Bungie can offer.
