One more quick Destiny post

There are a growing number of reviews of Destiny out there but here’s the first one I’ve seen from one of the big outlets. It’s a good review of a mediocre game. I think even people who like Destiny are feeling a bit let down. The Microsoft store is selling Borderlands 2 for $4.99 — I downloaded it last night after trying to enjoy Destiny for the third night in a row. For a tenth of the price, Borderlands is twice as good. Destiny is really disappointing.

Destiny review: no fate

In the terminal at LGA. Waiting for a delayed flight to take off. CNN is on, showing a dramatic live shot of marchers in Ferguson, Missouri. There are a couple of hundred people at the gate — and yet as I look around, there are three, maybe four tops, watching the newscast. Everyone else is buried in their phones or watching soccer or at the bar. Metaphor?

It’s easy to be cynical about Disney — until you experience Disney. The Disney Cruise with my family was easily one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done.
