Yeah Bungie's local around here. So you see a lot of Destiny shirts and swag - I would say every other time I go to the grocery store, I see someone else wearing Destiny shit. Never the same people, never the same shirt twice. So on the one hand - they might be getting paid for it. On the other hand - there be a lot of XBox tryhards up here.
Friend of mine's dad actually codes Destiny. So I can bitch and say "why is it that you have made this game unplayable for people who aren't doing it like a side hustle" and she'll say "preachin' to the choir, dude, I don't even log in anymore." They know? But it's like a casino. 80% of your revenue is from 20% of your peepz and the folx showing up with two fingers of scotch on a Thursday evening that bought the expansion 'cuz it was 80% off on the Playstation store? They ain't a profit center.
Riskrunner tho. There's a way to stack stormcaller armor where that thing basically ends up with unlimited ammo. Or there was. They probably nerfed it. But yeah it was great you'd do one of those timed events or whatever and you'd load up riskrunner and you'd basically just firehose the shit out of everyone without ever letting up the trigger.
I miss Sleeper Simulant.
