Gaming Update: Destiny

In case you missed it, last month many things have happened in the world of video games news but one of the most impactful events was the new update to the Destiny, Bungie's first-person shooter game, and its app have changed the game from being lackluster to top tier.


Bungie rolled out an update for Destiny's companion app for Android, iOS and the web today that makes managing your in-game inventory a lot easier. Destiny's companion app now has the option to move items to and from the Vault. App users will just need to go into their gear and inventory tabs to move things around, however, the option to transfer items to and from the Vault can't be accessed through the app's Tower Map.


Today's Bungie weekly update also has details on a new type of multiplayer feature: Inferno playlists. These new playlists, which hit the Crucible on March 3, changes how some Control games work by removing the tracker that shows the location of nearby enemy players. Inferno playlists has has simplified the scoring mechanic in the game in an effort to emphasize kills and objectives. There's less heavy ammo in Inferno, as players will only get one drop per match, which makes for heavy ammo camping almost non-existent. Finally, in the Inferno Control games, capture points are captured faster than in previous game modes allowing the players to get back into the fight a lot faster than before.


Lastly, the update brought to Destiny was the new matchmaking system for weekly heroic mission strikes that previously required players to have friends or acquaintances in order to do these in order to obtain both engrams, but even more so the highly valued strange coins needed to buy better equipment from the tower, which is the games main central hub. The new matchmaking system allows players to connect two other people, which allows the game to have a more social feel to it.
However, with all of the updates, most fans are still complaining over no matchmaking system for raid missions as well as random drop rates for some of the harder to obtain weapons such as the Gallajorn, which for this seasoned Destiny pro is the only weapon missing from his arsenal, but that is for another time.


Keep on gaming!

Teen Review by Cheyenne K....Princess Ben

Publisher's Description: Benevolence is not your typical princess and Princess Ben is certainly not your typical fairy tale. With her parents lost to unknown assassins, Princess Ben ends up under the thumb of the conniving Queen Sophia, who is intent on marrying her off to the first available specimen of imbecilic manhood.” Starved and miserable, locked in the castle’s highest tower, Ben stumbles upon a mysterious enchanted room. So begins her secret education in the magical arts: mastering an obstinate flying broomstick, furtively emptying the castle pantries, setting her hair on fire . . . But Ben’s private adventures are soon overwhelmed by a mortal threat facing the castle and indeed the entire country. Can Princess Ben save her kingdom from annihilation and herself from permanent enslavement?

Princess Ben is a fairy tale about a princess who is not accepted in her world. She finds herself in a locked room when she defies the queen. With nothing to do she finds a secret room and in that room is a book that holds some pretty interesting things.

You have to read Princess Ben's story to see what she does for her country with that exiting book. It has mystery and suspense threaded all along the story plot. With her parents lost to assassins, she has to find out that all she needed to do was be herself. Her aunt, the queen, is desperate to marry Ben off to the first suitor who will take her but Ben will have none of that, if she gets a say or not.

You will find yourself liking this book even if you don't like fairy tales. Never underestimate what a girl can do. Prince Chamberpot and his father will find she is quite the handful and maybe you will too! 4 STARS!!!
