Fun fact: I don’t own an Xbox One or PS4. My trusty PC is where the vast majority of my gaming happens. This means that when Destiny launched back in 2014, I missed that boat entirely. Actually, the reality is more dramatic than that. I practically tripped off the dock’s edge, fell into the ocean, and drowned hopelessly while I watched the good ship Destiny disappear into the horizon.
The thing is, I work with Tarryn van der Byl. Anyone who follows Tarryn’s exploits will know that for the last three years she’s been all Destiny, all day. She hosts Destiny tea parties, but only Guardians are invited. When she dreams, she dreams of Destiny. When she showers, she showers with her copy of Destiny, complete with a tiny waterproof speaker pumping out the Destiny soundtrack. In other words, she’s Destiny or GTFO.
I’ve felt a little left out, to be honest. So, like, sadface or whatever. But then Destiny 2 became a really real thing that’s happening for realsies, and it’s coming to PC. Sure, it’s coming late. But it’s coming. And the recent beta on PC finally gave me the chance to wear Tarryn’s undies for four whole days. Success!
