The Court Of Oryx Detailed In Latest Bungie Live Stream

Today, we got a first look at the Court of Oryx, a new activity set aboard the Hive Dreadnaught in The Taken King. The arena-based combat space was shown off with a fireteam of Bungie players, along with the help of online personality and game streamer, Laced Up Lauren. The live steam showed off how these new public events are triggered by players, as well as how the different tiers of arena fights can be attained.

The stream starts with a brief look at the new Raze-Lighter, a solar exotic sword, the new weapon type that is premiering for the first time, and clarified that we will indeed be getting at least one exotic sword in the mix when The Taken King launches.

After exiting the inventory, the fireteam started off in the Dreadnaught, where they came across a Taken Blight. When attacking this swirling rift, the Taken swarm the area, and you’re suddenly engaged in a fight. By completing the Blight, the fireteam was able to get one of several unique rune items that can drop. In this case, the fireteam got the Agonarch Rune.

Transformers: Devastation’s Peter Cullen On Playing Optimus Prime Then And Now

It was a Sunday morning in 1984, and I had been anticipating getting up early all week long. I had seen commercials for a new cartoon called Transformers, and was instantly excited. With cereal in hand, I experienced one of the most formative moments of my childhood.

To this day, Optimus Prime stands out as one of the most important hero figures of my youth. He is as much father figure to the Autobots as he is their military leader, and that is in no small part thanks to actor Peter Cullen.

In the video below, Cullen discusses his role in the upcoming Transformers: Devastation. He also reminisces about his first time reading for Optimus Prime and how he approaches the character.
