See, didn’t I tell you I’d make sure this series continued on? I finally got the chance to take some screenshots from Nessus in Destiny 2 a few weeks ago and am just now getting the chance to truly kick off this series. But first, before I continue and start amazing* you with some cool screenshots, let’s briefly recap a few things. I’ve been playing some games lately, mostly Skyrim, Destiny 2, and Assassin’s Creed: Origins. Those have been a ton of fun to play and I’m sure I’ll have some more in-depth thoughts on some of them soon. I’ve been continuing the writing and co-podcasting for Frantic Talks, this is where I say you should go check out the stuff we have over there…well, you should. I was also able to finish one of my more serious posts and I’d like to draw your attention to it briefly. It was about a topic that is “near and dear” to me for many reasons, and I have to admit that I quite enjoyed taking a minute to write about something in a serious tone. Lastly, there are a few other things that I have hinted at that I plan on enacting upon soon.

Alright, so let’s get on to the pretty pictures. According to the folder I have all of these screenshots saved in, there are currently 49 files in said folder. That should be enough, right? When taking these shots, it was a different experience for me while playing Destiny and one I quite enjoyed. To find the screenshots, I simply turned off the heads up display in the games’ settings menu and just started roaming through the game world. It was kind of interesting when enemies started attacking me, but luckily I have the habit of always aiming down the sight to shoot at something so it wasn’t terribly difficult to overcome. Dregs are scary, yo. As I roamed through the game world, there was a lot more detail that I was noticing that I typically didn’t notice when playing through normally. Why is that? I have no idea really, if I had to guess it might be due to the fact that I’m more focused on going from objective to objective that I just simply don’t notice it. Man, I should take my own advice. However, that’s sort of the why I started this series; is to showcase some of the art that is present in the games we play on a regular basis but yet don’t notice so much. Ok, now let’s get into the images. Continue reading
