Kirby Krackle had the unique honor of being the house band at Bungie’s Destiny: The Taken King release party last night at the MOHAI in Seattle. I got to meet a few devs and showered effusive praise on those who identified themselves as testers. I also got to dedicate our cover of AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell” to anyone who had ever “worked through a crunch, now or ever.” LOL I’m awesome.
I had to admit to those same testers that I hadn’t played Destiny yet, but I think I gained some respect back by mentioning I was still plowing through Alien: Isolation and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel so I’m basically a year behind.
We did all of this with Kyle basically in an illness-driven fugue state, having contracted some serious con crud from Long Beach Comic Con. How he pulls these events off in such a state we’ll never figure out, but I spent part of the post-show evening following him around waiting to catch him if he collapsed. Nerd rock life is hard.
