Last week was Spring Break so digital learning stopped for a week and Tristan, 15, spent most of the week with us. Well, to be more accurate, Tristan spent most of the week playing Destiny 2 on my X-box. I know he is listed as one of my PlayStation experts, but he managed to survive using the Xbox since I don’t have a PlayStation running yet.
For all of you that played Destiny 2 with Granny Leslie last week, I offer my heartfelt apologies for acting like an adolescent … because it was an adolescent playing under my gamer tag. By the time it dawned on Tristan than my Xbox auto signs in as Granny Leslie he had progressed so far into the game he didn’t want to start all over from the beginning and he managed to talk me into letting him continue to play as me.
I asked him to review the game from his point of view and this is what he had to say.
” One of the things that I like about Destiny 2 is that all the players have to work their way up through the light levels, people can’t just buy their way up to the top levels of the game. It is a strategy based team shooter. You either play in 3×3, 4×4, or 6×6 teams trying to keep each other from accomplishing their objectives by eliminating members of the other team.”
“There are some things that I don’t like. As you get higher in level it takes longer and longer to progress. I’m at the point that it seems like it takes forever to level up. Also, once I get a weapon I like it gets ‘nurfed’ so it is not as effective and I have to find something else to use”.
Personally, I got a lot of enjoyment listening to Will and Tristan trash talk each other when they played. Often they would forget that I was in the next room where I could hear them calling each other names and bragging about their video game ability. There were times I had to bite down on something to keep from laughing out loud so I wouldn’t make them self conscious and interrupt their silliness.
A good time was had by all.
