Bungie's gearing up for the biggest expansion to their enormous space shooter Destiny. The Taken King will release Sept. 15, but before that, they want to get people primed and ready.

This video should help.



The trailer is also somewhat notable because its the first time Bungie has showed footage of the ghost companion voiced by Nolan North, who took over for Peter Dinklage and what many think was a sub par performance.

Maybe you know what most of the words mean in that headline and maybe you don't. Either way, you should know today is a big day for a small selection of video game players.

For the first time since shortly after the launch of Destiny, Xûr, the mysterious Agent of the Nine who appears in different parts of the social areas every weekend to hock rare exotic wares, is selling the most powerful weapon in the game: Gjallarhorn.

Gjallarahorn (or Ballerhorn as it is colloquially known) is a rocket launcher and in the Bungie-developed shooter that's basically an MMO, it's really helpful to have something so powerful when bosses can take a while to beat.

The reason this is something of a bigger deal is because Gjallarhorn was a very elusive drop that became something of a necessity for seasoned players who ventured into Destiny's repetitive but rewarding grind day after day. For many unlucky people (myself included), the random number generator-based loot drop system employed by Bungie never gave up the Gjallarhorn goods. But today and through this weekend, they can purchase it with dignity.

It's a big deal. Hell, even Forbes wrote about it because who knows what their focus is anymore.

The Internet's reaction to this has been pretty fantastic. It was even trending on Twitter throughout America.



But the best reaction has been from the Destiny subreddit.

Mods there declared it a free-for-all holiday with a post entitled, "ATTENTION ALL GUARDIANS: TODAY, AUGUST 14TH, HAS BEEN DECLARED AN OFFICIAL /R/DESTINYTHEGAME HOLIDAY. IN THE SPIRIT OF "GJALLARHORN FREEDOM WOLFPACK PEW PEW BOOM DAY" THE MODS ARE BASICALLY DOING NOTHING. SH*TPOSTS, REPOSTS, NO-EFFORT, CLICKBAIT POSTS WITH MEMES ARE NOW ENCOURAGED."

All users on the site have been given Gjallarhorn flair next to their posts.



The banner image has been done up for the holiday.



And even the cursor has been turned into a Gjallarhorn for maximum celebration.

So if you're one of the unfortunate masses who have never heard the sweet destruction from a Gjallarhorn muzzle, head over to the tower, give Xûr 17 Strange Coins and buy one for yourself.

Every gamer knows that the bond formed with their virtual teammates is as real as any formed in the real world, and losing one of those friends is a truly painful loss.  After one of their clanmates passed away due to complications arising from a lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis, the Dads of Destiny clan found a truly touching way to salute their comrade. 

Known as TheSquashPhD in Destiny, Joshua R. Stokell of Charlotte, NC passed away on June 8.  He was 36 years old.  Josh had a PhD in Microbiology and was a Post- Doctoral Fellow at UNC-Charlotte researching Cystic Fibrosis.
