    [–] WE WELCOME OUR PEOPLE WITH PRIDE! Benjo_Kazooie 199 points ago in MURICA

    With “Danger Zone” playing softly in the distance.

    [–] [ME3 SPOILERS] Ultimate Survey about the Endings of Mass Effect 3 Benjo_Kazooie 2 points ago in masseffect

    I agree with you on every point minus Casey having no idea about what Mass Effect is. The series from its inception was his brainchild and I don't think one set of bad story decisions makes his contribution to the series irrelevant or any less important.

    [–] Having to re-grind for exotics that I still have in my Destiny 1 vault is getting kind of old... Benjo_Kazooie 6 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    Most if not all the D1 exotics (minus MIDA...) have been reimagined or improved versions of what they were originally. I don't see where it's lazy to bring back a small amount of the old gear as long as they bring something new to the table.

    [–] Evil giggle. Benjo_Kazooie 32 points ago in PrequelMemes

    Oof ouch owie my Mandalore planet and government that breaks all previous canon.

    [–] This whole “micro transaction-gate” has blown up beyond this sub. Benjo_Kazooie 1 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    Although I want the microtransaction issue to gain more traction, /r/gaming isn't really the place to go for balanced, well-informed opinions on the gaming world. It's perfect for reposting memes, nostalgia-pandering, and circlejerking about CDPR and Fallout New Vegas. It's probably one of the most toxic gaming communities on the internet next to your typical YouTube comments section.

    [–] The ELI5 Problem, or Why Destiny 2's Writing is so Unsatisfying Benjo_Kazooie 11 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    Kids can grow to have a great understanding of complex narratives and lore, it's why reading is so important early in life when it comes to the development of our learning capacity. I'm not saying Destiny needs to be some epic Tolkien or Shakespearean masterpiece, but purposely dumbing down the writing robs the narrative of so much potential.

    [–] The ELI5 Problem, or Why Destiny 2's Writing is so Unsatisfying Benjo_Kazooie 5 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    Not only are they insulting the intelligence of the adults playing the game, they're also assuming kids are stupider than they are.

    [–] The ELI5 Problem, or Why Destiny 2's Writing is so Unsatisfying Benjo_Kazooie 6 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    If we could get Shiro's lines with Fillion's delivery, Cayde would be so much more of a compelling character. Although Shiro had his quips now and then, he was always straightforward and serious when it came to the things that mattered in the world.

    [–] The ELI5 Problem, or Why Destiny 2's Writing is so Unsatisfying Benjo_Kazooie 13 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago) in DestinyTheGame

    The absence of narrative in D1 for better or worse is what made the universe feel larger, mysterious, and more compelling. The small glimpse into the wider lore made these stories feel more like actual legends that were passed down by these grizzled veterans and pioneers of the frontier, with many of the details lost to time. This gave so much more narrative weight than the upfront, jokey delivery of much of the lore in D2. Since D2 just seems so irreverent and lighthearted about its delivery of the stories in and about this universe, it makes everything that happens in Destiny's world feel so much shallower and ultimately less meaningful.

    [–] Dunkirk - Tom Hardy stand in front of a burning plane Benjo_Kazooie 17 points ago in Cinemagraphs

    I never thought Harry Stiles quoting Churchill would give me so many feels.

    [–] The publishing of The Communist Manifesto (1848) Benjo_Kazooie 71 points ago in fakehistoryporn

    It’s basically what would be produced if Ronald Reagan and the Iron Giant got nasty in the sack.

    [–] You were my brother,Anakin... Benjo_Kazooie 10 points ago in PrequelMemes

    Good soldiers follow orders...

    [–] I Glitched Into Saint 14's Tomb! Benjo_Kazooie 9 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    You're also probably not a revered hero of the last bastion of humanity left on Earth, with countless heroic feats and a seat at the side of humanity's leader. If I had the prestige of Saint-14 you bet your ass I'm getting someone to engrave my name on my armor.

    [–] I Glitched Into Saint 14's Tomb! Benjo_Kazooie 11 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    I guess he'd be Saint-15 at that point.

    [–] If it takes 3 years to flesh out a Destiny game, then a game reboot every 2-3 years will literally kill the game. Benjo_Kazooie 25 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    The difference here is that Mass Effect saves important things like player background and choices which have a major effect on the games’ stories, whereas our Destiny characters carry over appearance and some changes to the dialogue to reflect that we’ve played the original game.
