Didn't know you could throw it, so that's great to know. Knew everything else though.

I saw some complaints on GAF about the shooting feeling off that I don't exactly agree with. The shooting, in my opinion, feels as good as ever. I would say that auto weapons feel more unweildy than they did in Destiny 1, but I think that's a welcome change given their role.

Positives:
- Game looks great
- An actual story hook is a much welcome addition
- Wide open areas in a Strike are a very, very welcome addition
- Scout rifles and hand cannons feel great as ever
- Being able to be both offensive and defensive with the Defender class as a Titan is a massive, massive improvement (going Captain America was a fun choice, just wish I could throw the shield)
- Music is pretty good overall
- Color schemes from the stuff I've seen look a lot more diverse and unique, something that will be furthered with individual armor piece shading

Negatives:
- Placing shotguns and sniper rifles in the power weapon category seems like taking the easy way out rather than facing a tough design challenge head on
- For a game that loves to have mobs that rush at you in high volume losing a shotgun class for crowd control is unacceptable
- Scout rifles feel like I'm throwing paper towels at people in the Crucible
- The decrease in player count for multiplayer is lame

Overall I'm more cautiously optimistic about Destiny 2 than I was before. Though I do still have some reservations most centrally around how much content is in the game and how you are rewarded.

Bravo to whoever did this menu music. It's pretty good.

Hoping Destiny 2 has a quality soundtrack.
