This Week in PlayStation: Ghosts of Mars

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, SIEA

Destiny’s a hell of a game.

After having played the Alpha last month, I figured I’d drop into this week’s Beta to see what’s new, maybe max out a character and be done with it.

I’ve sunk ten hours into it so far.

If you’re reading this on Sunday, hop in at 2PM or 7PM Pacific, when the Iron Banner will open for a limited time. This Crucible mode features two maps that aren’t normally available in the Beta: Rusted Lans on Earth, and Blind Watch on Mars.

A few highlights from the last week: We got a look at the goods you can snag by pre-ordering Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, infographic puzzle platformer Metrico comes to PS Vita August 5th, we saw a new trailer for Sacred 3, Sid played The Last of Us Remastered, and we’ve got a bundle of 2-for-1 sales happening on PlayStation Store right now.

Well, back to Destiny for me. Who else is utterly, hopelessly addicted to the Beta?

  • I’m playing: Destiny Beta, FF14
  • I’m watching: Persona 4 The Golden Animation
  • I’m listening to: RX Bandits: Gemini, Her Majesty(!!!)

I’l loving the beta all over again… There is some differences over the Alpha but not by much…
Can we please have some stuff move over to the full game at least.
Make it happen Bungie

Speaking of Mars, has anyone here been watching Aldnoah.Zero?

The show is three episodes in so far, and I’d recommend trying all three (and sticking around until after the end credits on episode 3) before passing judgement on it.

While the show is on Crunchyroll (and can be watched using the CR apps), Daisuki post the latest ep for a week at a time on their YouTube channel, which I might suggest trying out for anyone with the YT app on their PS Vita.

I have been hopelessly addicted to the Beta all weekend as well. Lots of nice little improvements over the Alpha. Have you tried the Beta using Remote Play? It wasn’t available in the Alpha. Works great, I’d like more options for button mapping though…Have you tried climbing the tree at the Tower?
