Destiny Beta Update: Where’s The Moon Wizard?

The Destiny Beta has kicked off for PlayStation users (with Xbox to follow next week) and players have been exploring the wasteland looking for gear and leveling up their characters. I think the biggest question on people’s minds however isn’t where to get the best loot, but more along the lines of ‘Is that wizard still from the moon?’

The answer my friends is…well, yes, but you won’t be hearing about it.

That’s right, the much talked about lines from Peter Dinklage’s character in the Destiny Alpha are no more. Bungie promised the lines would be reworked after the Alpha and indeed they have. In the following clip, you’ll get a good listen at how Bungie not only updated the lines but managed to enhance the audio effects making Peter’s ‘Ghost’ character sound more robotic. While the lines are exactly the same, he does sound more like an AI with a sort of robotic filter over the spoken words.

Honestly, I never really had a problem with the lines in the first place. Considering he’s suppose to be playing an emotionless AI companion, I felt like the lines were delivered exactly as expected. The filter definitely doesn’t hurt things in my opinion, but I will say I’m sad the fan favorite “moon wizard” line is no more. At least Bungie acknowledged it, right?

So what do you think? If you were unhappy with the lines before, does this satisfy you?

    I think it still needs something. Perhaps it needs some “bad recording” effects or a very slight, robotic stutter? At this point, it sounds too much like Dinklage + Filter, and not a distinct character.

    I kind of miss the line too, though I suppose it would make sense that they would remove it. They’re trying to go for a serious tone and that particular combination of words simply can’t be taken seriously.
