I've been playing off and on. Would like to try the raid lair at some point as I hear it's easily the high point of the expansion (which is otherwise kinda lackluster for content).

I'm game, let me know when you want to try. (Disclaimer: I'm not even max level yet, the PvP disappointment has really curtailed my Destiny habit)

I'll be free next weekend/Friday night.

I've done Eater of Worlds, it's short but very awesome. Hit me up via the PSN messenger when you guys want to plan to do it.

I've been enjoying D2 midtier PvE quite a lot (heroic strikes, nightfalls, flashpoints), but...

 

I played Destiny 1 customs (and a few surprisingly quick matchmaking queue time) clash matches last night. That game's PvP is so delightful and dynamic compared to the somnambulant sandbox of D2.

Man, I couldn't disagree more about D1 PvP. I actually enjoy D2 PvP, unlike D1 which I did as a chore. I like the slowed down combat, and it's actually somewhat tactical and requires timing and more skill. D1 PvP just seemed so randon to me with the unpredictable supers and and secondary weapons which were essentially power weapons.

D1 PvP rewarded individual player skill more than D2, which emphasizes team tactics to a greater degree. You could outplay and kill an opposing team solo far more often in D1 than in D2, and it gave a greater feeling of power fantasy.

Sharpe, are you only playing D2 on PC these days? You know Crucified and I switched over to PS4 for you right?

I haven't been playing it at all lately, too frustrated/disappointed by a lot of the decisions made in regards to loot and end game rewards.

So Bungie dropped a patch on Tuesday - I had basically stopped playing D2, I've played three straight nights. It's far from perfect, but it's a huge step in the right direction in terms of bringing back the fun/power fantasy.

 

All of these clips are from tonight:

That Dawnblade in the last video broke something.

I'm glad PvP players have a reason to come back, but man for PvE they need to do some serious work. The Nightfall loot is just not enough. Expansion 2 better bring the heat that Osiris fell extremely short on.

 

Also, why the hell does Bungie insist on these enormous gaps between patches? I've never seen a developer so content to sit back and watch people shit on their game over problems that can be fixed with a patch, only to do an update once every 4-6 months. It's so bizarre.

That first video was dirty bro, too bad your team lost the match.

Dual, that dude is not playing endgame content, he's also just trying to get engagement/enragement from people like me who think he's a jackass.

 

Every aspect of Destiny 2 is better, the progression feels better, every activity feels rewarding, and quick travel/maps are game changers. Cocop's team crushed patrol, it's legitimately fun and dynamic.

 

 

Dual, just take a look at the amount streams on Twitch and tell me if you think the game is really a dud. Everyone and their mother is playing, the other day there were 1.2M concurrent players online in Destiny 2.

 

I know you do some streaming, I'm surprised you haven't jumped in.

What happened? The game is already having articles saying the game is dead/dying not even 7 months later. Even from the little I tried of the game, it looks like a retread of the exact same enemies and bosses that we've already fought with the wonderful new mictrotransaction system. I don't understand why this had to be a new game instead of D1 expansion stuff. There really doesn't seem to be anything new worth the price tag.

I think they just need time to grow. Glad to see they are listening to feedback. Hope to see some great things coming soon.

 

 

I think they can get there again.

Guy on the left seems like he knows what he's talking about. Hyped (though sadly I won't be back in town to play for launch day).
