Battle Bards Episode 117: Destiny

Try it out.

Two Destinies for the price of one! For this episode, the Battle Bards are gearing up in their favorite space armor to take on highlights from both of the Destiny soundtracks. From buyer’s regret to confusing the gender of a key character, there is all sorts of on-air therapy happening with this kooky trio!

Battle Bards is a bi-weekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

Lulz, Amanda Holladay is the pilot who picks you up in the first mission, cutscene flies through all the enemy fire and delivers you to the enemy flagship. Afterwards she becomes a vendor who sells you ships so she doesn’t have to give you rides anymore, ya lazy bum.


Hello, Battle Bards! It is your fave Dragon supporter here. Yes, “Sip”. It’s me. But I think I will just call you by your nom de plume, at least around here, Justin.

I realized a lesson from this edition of Battle Bards. Something that I think we all know but rarely discuss and that is that external experience impacts our opinions of music.

You see, I too have played both iterations of Destiny. And if I’m honest, the OSTs are pretty good given the game and what it was supposed to deliver. But, I can’t divest myself from the game’s failures. You listed only a few, btw. And therefore, I can’t enjoy the soundtracks without bias.

I think that I would rate the Destiny soundtracks much higher if I had never played Destiny 1 or Destiny 2. LOL! It is what it is.
