Destiny's Story Is, Uh, Hard To Explain

There's the Traveler, and you're supposed to be fighting the Darkness, and also there's something named Rasputin that speaks Russian and, uh, look, let's just shoot things okay?


Critical reactions to Bungie's slick new MMO-shooter have varied drastically, but there's one thing we can all agree upon: the story is a mess. Comedy group Mega64 captures that well here. Meanwhile, we'll all keep shooting things and hoping for a more coherent narrative in the sequel.

The Rasputin thing was mentioned in the third level, and then forgotten about, and then mentioned again in one sentence in the second to last mission, and I thought it would be some twist like he was the main villain, but, like most things in Destiny, it didn't go any where. Sigh.
