    So after getting buttfucked by Activision/Bungie on the first game, you're gonna throw down another 60-120 on Destiny 2? And it STILL will not have dedicated servers. Yet to be seen if the loot system will be fixed.

    Don't get me wrong, it has smooth fucking shooting but I'm not wasting my life on another Destiny game.

    They really do start you at the bottom. I like progressive music and rpgs so I don't see an issue with a good build up.

    Going warlock for awhile. Actually having a main character class seems important again if the story is lengthy. Unlike vanilla Destiny it seems to follow traditional video game story progression.

    Fun game: replace the word 'light' with 'cocaine' in all dialogue

    Grenade launcher seems like a joke weapon. Hopefully there are some good ones later on down the road.

    Is it true that you can't get a sparrow unless you get it out of a engram?

    I've only played about 2 hours but from what I hear its beating the campaign, level cap or engram for a sparrow.

    D2 is done by the same people who did the Taken King and you couldn't even use a sparrow on that planet. It seems like they've gone for the middle ground approach. If it wasn't for the fast travel I'd definitely find it pretty inconvenient.

    They probably have to figure out the PVP balance. The beta was pretty much just lol Hunter/Handcannon.


    Some people are seriously living on Destiny 2. I've put about 15 hours on it (10 on the campaign and a couple of side quests and 5 on the post campaign) and I feel like I'm behind like half of the game's population. I still haven't touched the strikes, Nightfall or PVP

    Sure, but everyone else is going to town, and here I am waiting for almost Halloween.
    They shut off the Beta early, so when me and by bud were going to go and do the dungeon, it was already gone.

    Eventually all of the hardcore players will go to PC I'd imagine. Its a lot more visually impressive.

    So here are my thoughts after a week of playing. My primary character(warlock) is a 272 power level character who has completed the Nightfall. 2nd character(Titan) is lvl 15.

    Storyline was certainly far more developed. Some pretty great visuals in the campaign events at the end. The story missions weren't terribly difficult which isn't really surprising. A LOT more cut scenes that were a LOT more interesting.

    I liked that they get rid of missions that you have completed. The fast travel is pretty nice as well. I liked that they simplified currency and rep building. It was needlessly convoluted in the old game.

    Completed 1 world quest which I liked quite a bit. Basically tells the story for the strikes.

    PvP is pretty good. Definitely better as a team than solo.

    Nightfall is pretty cool. I like that it is timed rather than resetting to checkpoints.

    All in All a good improvement to the original game without changing the core aspects to it.

    They seemed to have come up with some interesting new exotic stuff as well.

    Exotics seem to be a major highlight for me. Every gun and almost every armor I've run into has had something pretty useful.

    I'm not sure how the Raids are going to work because there are some seriously powerful builds out there right now. Nightstalker, Stormcaller and Voidwalker seem to all be really strong. A big factor for Raids is how much these reloading mechanics are needed. Nightstalker is an Orb factory and Warlocks have boots that reload the whole team when they hit the Rift. If thats enough reloading, Titans might get kicked to the curb.

    The Raid has dropped.

    New mechanics look cool but the lack of bosses (initially) might be polarizing.

    Haven't tried it yet.

    I don't really care about bosses. I'm more interested in game play. IMO, bosses are often a cheap trick way to make something challenging.

    I'm still leveling characters and trying out weapons. I'm in a clan and I plan on doing the Raid.

    For anyone seeing this, pick the Sunshot as your first exotic weapon. It has to be one of the best weapons in the game.

    It's pretty cool.

    LOVE the new Mida Multi Tool. Vigilance Wing is kinda kick ass as well. 5 burst pulse rifle. Tractor Cannon is fun as hell.

    I'm running out of things to chase. Only about half of the exotics do anything so it really limits the grind especially with Xur and the preorder giving out 3 of the more interesting weapons.

    Celestial Nighthawk, the Hunter piece the gives Orbs from doing the Nightstalker Super and the Sentinel armor piece that gives you ability recharge when you get hit or use Void weapons and the Raid Sword are pretty much the only things I need right now.

    They need a lot more viable PVP weapons.
