5 ways Bungie can make Destiny 2 bigger and better

first_imgDestiny is about to enter its third year with the latest expansion: Rise of Iron. With each new add-on, Destiny becomes a stronger, more robust title. Also with each new piece of DLC, players ask themselves the inevitable question: “When is Destiny 2 coming out?” Given how much money Activision and Bungie made from this generation’s most popular game, a sequel is all but assured. But how can Destiny 2 be better than its predecessor?Though a success, there were many things about Destiny that folks (including myself) weren’t too thrilled about. The game seemed to be on the cusp of true greatness, but fell short of becoming the next big thing. Yes, it was huge, but it could have been much better.We don’t have an idea of when Destiny 2 will be officially announced, let alone released, which gives us time to think about what we want to see in the game. There is much that Destiny 2 can do to improve upon the original formula and give players a truly generation-defining experience. Below you’ll find the top five things we want most from Destiny‘s sequel.1. A storyI’m starting this off with the number one thing people have wanted from Destiny: an actual story. Originally, Destiny was going to feature an epic tale with a rich lore and memorable characters. Instead, we got an endless string of fetch quests that lead to more fetch quests with next to no story in between them.Sure, Destiny had a story, but it was handed out in small unsatisfying pieces. Even when it appeared that the game would finally give players some semblance of a plot, characters would spout lines like “I don’t have time to explain why I don’t have time to explain.” For a game whose developers made Halo — a franchise with one of the finest stories in gaming — this was borderline insulting.Yes, it’s supposed to be a multiplayer game, but if Bungie and Activision really want the franchise to become a cultural phenomenon, then Destiny 2 needs to have a central plot that blows everyone away. Again, this is Bungie behind the wheel, so there is absolutely no reason they can’t pull this off. If Destiny 2 has an engaging story on top of a fun gaming experience then it is almost certain that sales will be even more impressive than they were for the first game.2. Destiny on PCThis one is a bit of a no-brainer, but Destiny 2 needs to be available on PC. For a game that is so heavily influenced by MMOs, it is strange how Destiny is only playable on consoles. With the PC market becoming bigger each day, there is no good reason why Destiny 2 shouldn’t be on this platform.How does Destiny 2 benefit from being on PC? The most obvious gain would be with the graphics. Don’t get me wrong, Destiny is one fine looking game, but if would look exponentially better on PC, especially running at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Pardon the cheesy pun, but the game would be visually out-of-this-world.The other advantage is larger servers. For a game that is half MMO, Destiny felt very small even if you were in the game’s central social hub. Destiny 2 on PC could greatly expand the amount of in-game users. If the console manufacturers play nice with one another, we could even have the game be cross-play compatible across all three systems. That last part may be a bit of wishful thinking, but it is certainly possible.And of course, let’s not forget mods, which would no doubt produce years and years worth of content and memes for the game.3. An expanded universeBefore the launch of Destiny, we were told that it would be a game with an expansive universe full of diverse locations. The concept art backed these statements up with images that teased us with glimpses of strange alien worlds and technologies. From everything we were told and everything that we saw, it looked like we would be treated to a massive galaxy full of secrets and wonders.Instead, we got a game that featured only three planets: Venus, Earth, and Mars. Though the game would eventually let players explore the moons of Earth and Mars, every single location in the game was confined to our solar system. Going back and forth between three of the four innermost planets was a far cry from having an entire galaxy to explore. Having such a meager amount of locations to check out limited the scope of the game considerably. This wasn’t the grand space opera we thought it was.For Destiny 2, we need to have as many different solar systems and planets as the game can possibly contain. Destiny 2 will be exclusive to current-gen consoles so Bungie should be able to cram in more locations, and of course, more things to do in these places. With both Sony’s PS4 Pro and Microsoft’s Project Scorpio on the horizon, it is possible for the game to take advantage of these powerful machines and deliver a game that truly lives up to its potential. There is no excuse for the next Destiny to not feature more explorable worlds — especially if Bungie wants to make it a space epic for the ages.4. Space battlesDestiny features a multitude of spaceships for players to choose from. Each one has their own unique aesthetic style, but aside from looking pretty during loading screens, the ships offer absolutely nothing in terms of gameplay. Destiny had players traveling between hostile planets in a spaceship with offensive capabilities, but never once did they have to engage in space combat. This is something that has to change in Destiny 2.These space combat sections don’t have to be small diversions. They can be fully realized missions where players team up with friends to attack enemy motherships and space stations while fending off thousands of smaller spaceships. These portions can take inspiration from space combat games such as Freespace 2, Descent, Elite Dangerous, and Star Wars: TIE Fighter. These have some of the very best space battles in gaming and Bungie would do well to try to base Destiny 2’s outer space engagements on them.Of course, these sections don’t have to limit people to inside their spaceship. For example, players can cut a path through a swarm of enemy ships to make it on board a space station where the game would then return to the standard FPS mode. Here, the mission continues with the players meeting their objective(s) before returning to their spaceships to engage in more space battles. This should be done seamlessly in order to not break immersion.Space combat during campaign missions would be amazing enough on its own, but it would be even more incredible if there could be Crucible missions where players fought against each other in heated battles. Blasting friends or random folks away online is something that Destiny players would no doubt find exciting. The game’s FPS competitive multiplayer is great already, but toss in PvP space battles and you’ll have one of the best multiplayer games on the market.5. A better single player experienceHave you ever tried to play Destiny by yourself? It sucks. Though the game can technically be played solo (raids notwithstanding), it is clearly designed to be played with a team of three people. While this is all well and good, some of us prefer to play games solo. However, not only do missions contain too many enemies for only one person to handle, but there isn’t even any sort of narrative reward when one completes missions on their own (because of the lack of story). Destiny 2 has to be structured in a way that makes it more appealing to folks who would rather play alone.This can be done by having A.I. partners who accompany players on missions. Think of Mass Effect where you always have two NPC characters at your side. It could even be that the others share some back and forth banter with you. This would go a long way to giving Destiny 2 more of a personality. These partners can even help revive you if you should fall in battle. In turn, you can help revive your NPC team mates. This would make it seem as if you are playing with others without actually playing with anyone.People don’t always have the time to coordinate their schedules to play online so it would be fantastic if Destiny 2 was more single player friendly. Adding an actual story (as mentioned above) can help in this regard as well, because you’ll know that after completing a mission you will be treated to a nice bit of exposition.What else do you think Destiny’s successor should have? Sound off in the comments section and let us know.last_img read more

Reports emerge that devices found on Barcos Caribe were explosive

first_imgPlaya del Carmen, Q.R. — A report by Noticieros Televisa says that the explosion on the Barcos Caribe ferry February 21 in Playa del Carmen was the result of an explosive device.The news station says that federal sources reported that the explosion that occurred on Barcos Caribe February 21 was caused by an artifact and not by accident due to mechanical failure of the ferry or by the accumulation of fuel.Authorities of the Navy and the Criminal Investigation Agency of the Attorney General’s Office found elements that prove the existence of an explosive device on the ferry.Carlos Loret de Mola of the television station reported that “Federal sources with access to the first results of the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said they found pieces of brown cardboard with a cylindrical shape and along with an explosive charge, there were five cardboard cartridges and a yellow wire connected to them,” he explained.He added that what was found had the elements of a homemade explosive, explaining that in the affected ferry seats located in rows M, N and O, glued shrapnel and impregnated explosive dusts were discovered.The televised report said that the artifact found on the Cozumel Barcos Caribe ferry days later was more sophisticated as determined by the PGR, and in this case, was detonable by remote control.El Universal columnist Raúl Rodríguez Cortés, has reported that security footage from the February 21 Barcos Caribe explosion has already been reviewed and that it could be “the key evidence that it was a self-inflicted attack”.According to Rodríguez Cortés, the video is part of the evidence given to the Criminal Investigation Agency by the Quintana Roo attorney’s office. In it, one of the owners of the shipping company, Roberto Borge Martín father of the former governor Roberto Borge Angulo along with an unidentified person who accompanied him, are seen.He says the video shows the stranger carrying a backpack at the time of boarding the ferry in Cozumel, but when he got off in Playa del Carmen, he no longer had it. Borge Martín is seen leaving the boat hastily, confirmed Rodríguez Cortés sources who say they saw the video.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The court also ruled that the expansion of Medicaid is within Congress’ spending power. The court ruled that the law is constitutional by a 5-4 vote.“The court’s action in support of the ACA helps remind us what’s really important — enabling all Americans to obtain affordable, quality healthcare,” said AHA CEO Nancy Brown. “The historic decision handed down today will benefit America’s heart health for decades to come. Questions about the Affordable Care Act’s constitutionality have overshadowed the law’s progress. With this ruling, that uncertainty has finally been put to rest. We can now build on the significant advances already achieved under the act and truly transform our healthcare system.”ACC President William Zoghbi, M.D., FACC, agreed, but said it will take time to see what the full impact of the decision will be. He supports the overall goal of ACA in creating a sustainable healthcare system.“As we sort through the ramifications of this decision, it is important to remain focused on patients and overall healthcare delivery,” Zoghbi said. “The goal should be a sustainable healthcare system that rewards quality and that allows physicians and their patients to determine together what is the most appropriate care. The American College of Cardiology believes a system that measures performance and rewards quality is the best way to improve public health and reduce costs.”For the 122 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, including the 7.3 million with some form of heart disease or stroke who are uninsured, this decision will likely be met with a great sigh of relief, Brown said.“No longer will they be denied coverage or charged higher premiums because of their health status. Beginning in 2014, these Americans will finally be able to attain the lifesaving care they desperately need at a price they can afford,” she explained.The ACA is the largest expansion of health care coverage since Medicare and Medicaid were initiated in the sixties. The Supreme Court decision means that efforts already underway to implement the law can and will continue. To that end, the ACC said it will continue to support the policies and provisions with the law that are in line with its overarching healthcare reform pronciplesiples, including those that expand healthcare coverage, encourage preventive care, and foster innovative payment and delivery system models that reward quality and ensure value.At the same time, the ACC will also continue to work with Congress and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on provisions that affect cardiovascular care. These include:Implementation of the controversial Independent Payment Advisory Board, a 15-member board tasked with developing and presenting proposals to the president and Congress, starting in 2014, to extend the solvency of Medicare, slow cost growth, improve quality-of-care, and reduce national health expenditures. The ACC remains concerned by the authority granted to an independent body to determine payment cuts for only physicians, particularly in light of ongoing payment reductions as a result of the Medicare physician payment formula. Implementation of the Physician Payments Sunshine Act requiring that industry disclose payments to physicians and teaching hospitals, both direct and indirect. While the ACC supports the overarching objectives of the act, the ACC has rasied concerns regarding CMS’s interpretation and proposed implementation of the act. Final regulations are expected in the coming months.

GlobalTies highlights role of public diplomacy at 2015 Latin America Dialogue

Mary Ann Gatty/US Event PhotosWASHINGTON, D.C. – A Latino congressman from California, a respected pollster and Brazil’s top diplomat here were among speakers at the 2015 Latin America Dialogue recently held at the Organization of American States’ headquarters.Sponsored by GlobalTies U.S., the Feb. 4 event – “Strengthening Relations in the Western Hemisphere through Exchange” – attracted about 350 people. Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the U.S. State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program, its focus was the role public diplomacy plays in U.S. foreign policy.OAS Secretary General José Miguel Insulza, whose term of office ends this year after a decade leading the 34-nation body, opened the half-day event along with James R. Jones, former U.S. ambassador to Mexico and now chairman of ManattJones Global Strategies, a Washington consulting firm. José Miguel Insulza, departing secretary-general of the Organization of American States, welcomes delegates to OAS headquarters in Washington, D.C., as he kicks off the 2015 Latin America Dialogue. Mary Ann Gatty/US Event PhotosOther keynote speakers included Thomas R. Pickering, former undersecretary for political affairs; John D. Feeley, principal deputy assistant secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs; Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.); former U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutiérrez; David Decker, president of Ohio’s Franklin University; Rep. Joaquín Castro (D-Texas) and Ernesto Henrique Fraga Araújo, chargé d’affaires at the Brazilian Embassy in Washington.“What this administration wants is a Western Hemisphere that is democratic, prosperous, middle-class and able to use the fruits of its prosperity and growth for all its citizens, not just a select few,” said Feeley, whose overseas assignments include Mexico City, Santo Domingo and Bogotá.But continuing violence – especially in Central America – is eating away at that prosperity, even in full-fledged democracies.“Citizen security undergirds any society’s potential for happiness,” he said. “If you’re afraid to go out at night, if your small business is being extorted, you’re not happy. Colombia has shown us how to handle this, but still has a long way to go.” James R. Jones, former U.S. ambassador to Mexico and now chairman of the Washington consulting firm ManattJones Global Strategies, speaks at the 2015 Latin America Dialogue. Mary Ann Gatty/US Event PhotosSo does the U.S., he added, “with its Staten Island chokeholds and Fergusons” – a reference to two of the most glaring recent incidents of police brutality against African Americans.Jon Clifton, managing director of Gallup World Poll, said measurements such as per-capita GDP and unemployment are often poor indicators of true happiness. And even though incomes have risen dramatically, Latin Americans are no happier than in the past.“The Middle East is No. 1 in the world for negative emotions, but No. 2 is Latin America,” said Clifton, whose company’s Gallup World Poll covers 160 countries representing 98 percent of the world’s adult population. “In Latin America, there are very high negative emotions, driven by things like corruption. We can see it in our database. That is one of the single biggest drivers of pain and worry.”Cárdenas, who represents California’s 29th Congressional District, said six million U.S. jobs rely on trade with Mexico, and that products manufactured in Mexico contain four times as many U.S. components as those made in China. In addition, wages are 37 percent higher in export-related industries than in the rest of the Mexican economy.“The United States and all countries south of us should and need to do business with each other,” Cárdenas told his audience. “We should pay attention to each other. It’s in our own interest, and I dare say, there’s no need to go to China when you have Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia and Chile. There are so many opportunities.” Rep. Tony Cárdenas, a Democrat representing California’s 29th Congressional District, argues for greater U.S. trade with Latin America. Mary Ann Gatty/US Event PhotosCárdenas, who was who was first elected to the California State Assembly in 1996, went on to serve three terms in that body and was later elected to the Los Angeles City Council. After 16 years in public office, he made history by becoming the first Latino elected to represent the San Fernando Valley as a member of Congress.“I believe that in our subliminal psyche, it became uncool to do business with Latinos. Growing up, people tried to convince me it was not cool to be a Latino. And I wasn’t the only one,” he recalled. “But because I was able to overcome those lies, it wasn’t until I was 31 that a Latino activist hoodwinked me into running for office.”Cárdenas said boosting trade with Latin America is among his top priorities.“I want California to be a hub for continued innovation with Latin America. As a Latino former business owner, I want to see Latinos succeed not only in my community but throughout the hemisphere,” he said, complaining that many in the U.S. are basically “ignoring” the 30-plus countries to its south – even as China grabs all the attention.“When I was on the city council for 10 years, I had business people come up to me and say, ‘I want to go to China.’ Then I’d ask them why China, and they had absolutely no idea,” said Cárdenas. “In this country, for too many businesses it became cool and sexy to go to China. Well, I’ve got to say, Sofia Vergara is from Colombia, and she’s pretty cool and sexy.”Cárdenas vowed that as long as he’s in Congress his mission will be “to make dreams come true for Americans and all the people to the south of us. We have the resources. We can and should be the dominant region of the world, if we do what is right.”Watch Tico Times correspondent Larry Luxner moderate a panel on Cuba, at 2:24:52: One thing that’s not right, said Pickering, is the continued detention of terrorists – real and suspected – at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Pickering, a former U.S. ambassador to Russia, India, Israel, El Salvador, Nigeria and Jordan, said Guantánamo should be turned from a prison into an opportunity.“That opportunity is to create a first-class graduate institution focused on all of the subjects of interest to the hemisphere – economy, business development, health and education. Why not begin to think about that now?” he said. “I’ve often thought it’s time to close Gitmo anyway. We can all benefit from and be proud of this. Why not make it a center for the long-term future of the world?” John D. Feeley, principal deputy assistant secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, speaks at the 2015 Latin America Dialogue. Mary Ann Gatty/US Event PhotosCuba, in fact, was a focus of the event, given that the GlobalTies dialogue took place only seven weeks after President Barack Obama declared that the United States would re-establish diplomatic ties with Cuba after more than half a century of hostility.Asked about the announcement, the State Department’s Feeley said it “does not represent a strategic shift” in thinking, contrary to what many observers are saying.“The end state of our Cuba policy has always been about promoting the legitimate, democratic desires of the Cuban people, who have suffered from a totalitarian regime that does not afford its people the democratic rights every other country in this hemisphere affords its people. What’s changed is the tactic of diplomatic isolation.”Feeley added: “The re-establishment of diplomatic relations is nothing more than the very first step in the process called normalization. We all look forward to that day when a democratic Cuba is welcomed back into this hall, but we don’t have that yet. We are taking steps to get in that direction, but it will be very slow and tortuous.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Virgin Voyages said it was disappointed by the US

first_imgVirgin Voyages said it was disappointed by the US Government’s decision.The start-up cruise line, set to enter service early next year and operate sailings from Miami to the Caribbean, including Cuba, told travel advisors: “If you have a sailor booked on any of our sailings with a stop in Havana, we wanted to let you know we’ll be reaching out to them by email tomorrow. The entire Virgin Voyages crew is working hard on changes to our voyages and we’ll be back in touch next week with full details of Havana’s replacement,” Virgin said. Virgin Voyages’ plans scupperedVirgin Voyages’ website promoting some of its Cuba sailing options  Go back to the enewsletterOcean cruise operators have been left scratching their heads after the Trump Administration revealed plans to restrict non-family travel to Cuba. The decision by the US Treasury and Commerce Department will see all cruise ships operating from the US banned from sailing to any port of the northern Caribbean destination in an effort to starve the island’s communist government.It’s a backward step from the former Obama Administration which opened the doors for USA-Cuba relations three years ago and consequently saw an influx in cruise companies adding Cuba to their deployment calendars.Over 142,000 American entered Cuba between January and April, a figure that’s up 300% compared to the previous corresponding period.“Cuba continues to play a destabilising role in the Western Hemisphere, providing a communist foothold in the region and propping up U.S. adversaries in places like Venezuela and Nicaragua by fomenting instability, undermining the rule of law and suppressing democratic processes,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.“This Administration has made a strategic decision to reverse the loosening of sanctions and other restrictions on the Cuban regime. These actions will help to keep U.S. dollars out of the hands of Cuban military, intelligence and security services.”The changes take immediate effect, from 5 June 2019.Additionally, the United States will no longer permit visits to Cuba via passenger and recreational vessels, such as yachts and private & corporate aircraft, the State Department said.Commercial flights from the US will still be permitted. And CLIA’s response?Currently, cruise companies including Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line and Carnival operate ships from the United States to Cuba.In a statement, Cruise Lines International Association said it was yet to fully comprehend the repercussions of the decision.“CLIA and its Cruise Lines are currently reviewing and working through the details of the Administration’s Cuba policy announcement to better assess the scale and timing of its effect on cruise sailings from the U.S. to Cuba,” the statement said.Lead image: Royal Caribbean’s Empress of the Seas in HavanaGo back to the enewsletter So why now?The State Department said “it holds the Cuban regime accountable for its repression of the Cuban people, its interference in Venezuela and its direct role in the man-made crisis led by Nicolas Maduro.”“”Despite widespread international condemnation, Maduro continues to undermine his country’s institutions and subvert the Venezuelan people’s right to self-determination. Empowered by Cuba, he has created a humanitarian disaster that destabilises the region.”“The United States calls on the regime to abandon its repression of Cubans, cease its interference in Venezuela and work toward building a stable, prosperous and free country for the Cuban people.”Ending Group People-to-People TravelThe new strategy will remove authorisation for group people-to-people educational travel. A “grandfathering” provision will continue to permit the select group people-to-people educational travel previously allowed but only when the traveller has already completed at least one travel related transaction previous to the new policy. These transactions include buying an airline ticket or reserving accommodation in Cuba.last_img read more

trending on social media across the globe Rajinikanth couldn’t be happier Related News The official teaser of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth’s Kabali saw some 40000 visitors in the first five minutes—that’s was at 1105 am onMonday morning and a total of 84 lakh viewers within 24 hours The popularity of the Kabali teaser has seen it go viral and it is trending on social media across the globe Rajinikanth couldn’t be happier What’s in the teaser Rajnikanth ridiculing lungi-wearing villains in Tamil cinema asks the villain if he expects him to obey people who are like the sidekicks of M N Nambiar the Tamil villain of yesteryear — and then delivers an ominous warning — “Don’t mess with me I am Kabali Da” The one-minute-six-second trailer shows the actor with wrinkles grey stubble and other signs of old age — he is reportedly playing an ageing don who leaves the country to build his dynasty The teaser of Kabali directed by Pa Ranjith suggests that this will be yet another movie portraying the larger than life image of the superstar If rumours about its plot are true this may be yet another Baasha (1994) in which he acted as a stylish Mumbai based don The Kabali budget is estimated at around Rs 100 crore Read More Leading analyst of the south Indian film industry Sreedhar Pillai said it was very important for Rajinikanth to make a success of it as he needed a hit “Unlike earlier the trailer itself is impressive and it presents the image of Rajinikanth in a way that caters to his fans” Pillai said Kabali will be released after the Tamil Nadu polls a few days after the new government’s swearing in at Fort St George It is almost fitting because he is one actor after MGR who had dabbled in politics in erratic way Even this time he had been expected to play a major role for the BJP until he suddenly developed cold feet and backed out He entered politics in mid-90s and boldly declared that “nobody could save Tamil Nadu if Jayalalithaa is elected to power again” at the peak of 1996 elections; he faced a tough time in 2004 when Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) attacked his movies for his smoking scenes in Baba (2002); he was later seen avoiding ‘bad habits’ in Chandramukhi (2005) In these elections Vijayakanth provoked Rajnikanth fans who burnt his effigies after he mocked the actor by saying “Vijayakanth is afraid of only good people with good hearts I will not withdraw like Rajnikanth” This superstar of Tamil Nadu who often celebrates with spiritual sojourns in the Himalayas is also different in another respect: he never appears like a superstar outside the cinema Leading actors in the south including Mammootty and Mohanlal are cautious of their appearance and always wear a wig; Rajinikanth always presents himself as he is “That is the magic of Rajinikanth and that is why people admire him He presents his larger than life image only in the movies because movies are meant for that He finds the idea of wearing wig for a public function
