On Friday night, I earned the “Raider” trophy as I finally beat Atheon. I was in a 6-main raid with an acquaintance of mine met through our own Jonathan. I was brought in as a ringer, since their slot was open. How can I sum up my experience running the Vault of Glass?
Intense. From opening the vault door, and making my way to Atheon, the entire raid didn’t drop in intensity. It simply changed form. From defending, attacking, hiding, and even platforming, the entire dungeon blended seamlessly to form one of the best MMO dungeons I’ve played in a long time. Not to mention I got 2/3 raid gear armor pieces on my first try :).
With that in mind, I can probably say that Destiny is the standout GOTY for me. I haven’t had this much fun playing a shooter in a looooooooooooooong time.
In other news, my Extra Live team, “Team Kupo Yo”, reached its fundraising goal! We raised over $1000 for the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Big shoutout to our very own Abe, who was participating in the actual stream from the get-go, Jennice for being the team captain and getting the whole thing organized, Thanh for running the away operations, and to all the teammates and people that donated money, thank you!
What’s next for SSB? More Destiny, more humor, and hopefully more comic. Admittedly, I’m still working on the last part.
