    Destiny 2

    I saw in the other thread that people were talking about it. Thoughts? I was sorta noobish on the first game and barely played it. I jumped in at the Taken King expansion and put maybe like six hours in before I got sidetracked elsewhere. So far D2 has been enjoyable but I haven't plugged too much time in. I'm like Level 9 and have barely done anything which is concerning. I've seen people talk about how quick the endgame happens which makes sense when you see how early they're pushing the DLC. The world we live in now.

    The real question is who's playing on PC and who is down to blast through this? I've been playing with my brother but our schedules don't mesh well and it's hard to get consistent playtime in. I actually want to experience the game while it's fresh and not have it fall by the waste side like so many games.

    Re: Destiny 2

    I got it on PS4 and haven't really touched it in a couple of weeks. Let me start by saying that Destiny 1+2 I have put a lot of my life into. I had 3 400LL characters on both PS4 and Xbox One.

    This could be one of three things, either I am burned out on Destiny having put a lot of time into it, or that I am starting to not enjoy gaming as much as I used to, or that I just really didn't like Destiny 2 as a game.

    I got really bored with it really fast. The campaign was okay, but at times it seemed to just be 90% filler. Plus, there is no indication of when to do adventures in between the main story. If you do the adventures as they pop-up, then they might spoil the story for you. Some of them assume you are further in the main story than you might be. I got my main hunter to 305, I have done everything on her at least once. And then I went to work on another character and it felt like a grind to do anything in the game. That was when I realized that I wasn't actually enjoying Destiny 2, I was just playing it because I've played Destiny for three years.

    The raid is what would keep me around playing, but this time around the Leviathan raid just isn't that good IMO. Out of the four encounters, 2 of them are just rehash of previous raid encounters and one is overly complicated to the point many teams just don't do it.

    I say all this with 200 hours into Destiny 2. So, I cannot complain about it having nothing to do. 200 hours for a 60 dollar game I think is well worth the money. I might pick it back up when the DLC comes out, we'll see if they make changes that make it worth playing again.

    Re: Destiny 2

    I have zero idea what Destiny is about or who I am or why I'm doing what I'm doing. I just shoot the things that pop up and take my loot afterward.

    Even Borderlands had a more diverse and engaging story lmao.

    Re: Destiny 2

    Borderlands 2 I thought had a pretty good story for being just a kill n loot game.

    Destiny 1, the entire story was online. You had to collect "Grimoire Cards" in game and then go to the bungie website to read them. The story is "ok" if you like reading mini books at your computer instead of in game.

    I was honestly the exact same way for that game. Usually had it on mute while I listened to podcasts and just shoot up some Hive turds.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    Yeah Destiny was my go-to game when I had a new album I wanted to listen to while needing to keep my idle hands busy.

    Unfortunately(?) the score in this one is greatly improved and makes me feel a little worse about turning the volume all the way down, but I'll get over that eventually.

    Re: Destiny 2

    Finally starting to get into a groove with the game. I dig it. I can see where things get stale after grinding out all the adventures and shit because I'm level 13 now after only doing a few extra. Still trying to learn the loot and inventory system because it doesn't really make clear if you can upgrade shit.

    Been watching some crucible and it looks awful if you have to rely on shit you find in the main game. Like that seems off but idk if that's how it actually works or not. Looks it.

    you upgrade stuff by fusing them together. say you have a purple/legendary item that has good perks but as you go along it gets underpowered. you can fuse a blue item that has a level-appropriate power into your purple item so that your purple item takes on the power level of the blue one. the cost of doing this is that you have to pulp other purple items that you dont want in order to generate crystals that allow you to fuse/upgrade the stuff you actually wanna keep.

    ive found the campaign to be a boring slog (havent finished it yet, people i know irl keep telling me not play too far ahead and wait for them ) and have much more fun in the PvP mode. you can survive in the crucible even if you dont have the best guns as long as you pick guns with perks that suit your playstyle and you play with good teamwork and awareness. all the power levels are equalized in the crucible so you dont have to worry about that, but there are some guns with really good perks which you have to slog through the campaign to get (i.e. origin story, the MIDA tools, etc.) there really arent that many weapons in this game that can one hit kill so sticking together as a team and everyone shooting at the same target is very important, since you never want to engage in a boxing match with 6 titans a man down.

    Re: Destiny 2

    so you would need two items. say you have a yellow helmet that is power level 100. then you have a blue helmet which is power level 150. first you make sure you have enough purple gems (which you get from breaking down purple items you dont want/need). then you right click your yellow helmet. on the bottom left of the item page, theres a black box thingy showing you options for fusing. put your mouse cursor on that and it should show you the blue helmet is fusable with your yellow on. press F to make it happen. voila, your yellow helmet is now power level 150 or close to 150.

    So all in all people like this? Saw some gameplay for it before it came out and thought it looked cool.

    Re: Destiny 2

    I'm really starting to dig it. I didn't think I'd get much long term enjoyment out of it but I've played it pretty much daily since release. Even redoing public events and stuff is fun because I'm still increasing my light level so finding new cool shit is addicting. Once I cap out that might change. But the combat is fun and it's just a dope coop experience.

    I do have to say that the campaign felt do much like Halo CE to me though. One section in particular hit the same beats and it was sorta weird haha

    I saw gameplay and thought it looked boring AF but it is actually pretty neat. Doesn't feel as fun as it could be (knowing Halo and how much fun that was) but it's definitely a solid game with a decent amount of things to do. Would feel a little better about it if the upcoming content were free but it is what it is.

    The PVE feels just slightly less fun than Halo's whereas the PVP seems miles away, but still interesting in its own way. The grind-y part of it is a bit of a slog but it's perfect for listening to podcasts while "getting stuff done." If you are at-all on the fence about it, I would suggest waiting for a sale so you feel an enhanced sense of value with your purchase.

    I'm having a ton of fun in Destiny 2 on PC. I just hope they tweak a thing or two in the upcoming patches and continue introducing new content.
