Why do you even go to the moon? I forget. All I remember is once you go to Venus you get an actual cutscene with another character, and she sends you on this whole Vex quest. Then you stop the Vex. Then everyone celebrates and she's all "we started a new video game franchise".
It's super weird. Like playing through an episode of a procedural TV show, but as if the fifth episode of the season was episode one. The Black Garden was fun though. Game needed a whooooooooole lot more of stuff like that. Like, every two missions should've had a big set piece like that. At least there are the Strikes for that (and I guess the raids).
The Vex seemed like they could've been interesting though. The whole stuff about being outside of space and time, or was it being backwards in time? Fuck it, I dunno. Tyrion was saying some shit while I was shooting aliens.
That wizard came from there so you are like "YO WHY IS THERE MOON WIZARDS? Oh it's the flood ok let's stop those guys." Then you stop them.
I don't even know why everyone flipped out about the Vex in the story. The cabal seem way more dangerous with their super power armor and space ships or shit even the flood with their demon zombies and wizards. The robots seemed to be the least threatening considering they have time travel. For all the "MY GOD THEY ARE ONE MIND LINKED TOGETHER THEIR BRAINPOWER IS INCREDIBLE!" they sure were dumb robots who walk single file into grenades. It just seemed like people should have been more interested in the fact that they can literally travel through time on a whim. I'm no expert but that seems like something that would sure be useful to maybe go back in time before the Traveler got fucked up and stop that from happening.
What is the Darkness? This is the biggest question I was left with. There are four bad guy races, I get that, but they seem to be at war with one another as far as I can tell, so are they part of the Darkness? If so then the Darkness shouldn't be that hard to beat, seeing as it's tearing itself apart at the seams.
They seemed to be implying that the Darkness was a literal thing like the Traveler only with darkness instead of light. I mean if you think about it they have all the powers that the players have with shields and elemental abilities. They are like different classes for the Darkness and they all kill each other sometimes like the Guardians do in the Crucible.
