I played Vanilla Destiny Day One for about 2-3 Days but that was it, never got into it, so the thought of Destiny 2 was nothing but seeing everyone talking about it and seeing people play it, I'm here wondering is it worth the time?

Doubt it. If you didn't play the first one at all, then I highly doubt you'd care about this one. It's not different enough to assume you'd now be into it. I think you're just having a case of fomo.

Vanilla Destiny was a different beast than the game that exists today, and those changes have only gotten better in D2. That means there is a chance you'll enjoy this. However, it was just the systems that went through changes. If you didn't like how the game felt or the gameplay loop, then you probably won't find much to like here either.

This is an honest question lol I'm curious what you think. You're not of the opinion that they are preying on gambling and addictive personalities?


Hey Eve.
To the day, that I die. I will always stand by the view that "The Market Is Always Right". Meaning that as long Bungie and other's, can make money from it, then I will view it, as the right course of action for them.

The market only gives you something, if people are ready to pay for it, otherwise it crash and burn. I won't stand in the way of how other people spend their money, is it alwasy wise for people to spend so much money for the chance of getting a emote in video game ... No, however it is not mine, Bungie''s Activision's or Sony's responsibility to stop you from wasting all that money.

That will always fall back on the person that spends that money, becasue people have a responsibility not to become victims to themselves or for that matter to other's.

If the person is not directly forced to buy it by someone else, then I simply don't care whatever or not they spend their life savings on a video game.


I can see your "non-interference" point of view. I think saying the market is always right is too far for me because I think you have to consider morality and industry ethics. But I know there's a debate about how much a government should meddle with economics and we just seem to be in different points of the spectrum.

I don't trust people's good sense lol, and would rather the government protected addictive people from bankruptcy (or at least protect them from a lower quality of life).

Anyway. Destiny 2 is lots of fun and I love it portilloPure1 Not sure I'll put in 100h+ like the last one, but I'm happy with what I'm seeing

If at the end of a strike someone has almost double your kills it's not because of my power level or my weapons, it's because you suck.

A solid review for Destiny 2, however I tend to not agree with most of his points. One thing I do wish he had talked about, is how Bungie have don their best to hide away both our stats, and the medals we earn in the crucible.

Its fucking stupid to let me earn medals in the crucible, but at the same time don't let me view how many I have earned or how I earned them. But maybe I did not complete enough of the game to complain about that ?

It would explain a few things in regards, to just how bad people are at PvP.

Totally agree. While PVP feels like classic Halo MP when it's at its best, it's missing a lot of the extra stuff that made Bungie's Halo games extra special. Not just medals, but being able to view a wide variety of after-match and career stats. Stuff like your overall statistics, K/D, weapon/ability usage, etc. And I really miss replays. I had a particularly great game with some nice kills yesterday, and it occurred to me that I would have loved to go back and watch them. I know the game is PVE focused, but the PVP is quite good, so I'd love to see them put a little more TLC into it.

I'm just gonna say it, I want Peter Dinklage ghost back. Nolan North ghost is great and funny, but it's not the Destiny ghost I know. The dumb humor doesn't fit right with me. Say what you want but I didn't have an issue with the Peter D ghost.

Is Nolan the Ghost again? So he's playing the Ghost and Cade-6? Color me impressed. I actually like both performances and characters, though Cade leans a little too much into poor-man's-Deadpool territory sometimes.

Oh, maybe I'm wrong then. I didn't know he was Cade. I thought that was someone else. Maybe he isn't the ghost. I just assumed he was still. Either way my point is I miss Peter D. He will always be ghost to me.

Edit: Okay so I was right. He does ghost. But Nathan Fillion does Cade, not Nolan.

I even called their support line and was told they couldn't do anything about it. This wouldn't be as much of an issue if I wasn't trying to get the $10 reward certificate from preordering the game. So thanks to Best Buy's sudden piece of shit working website I get to lose out on that deal.

Awesome.

Finally got it to go through, but it seems I somehow still missed out on the coupon. Whatever.

Well it would seem I actually did get the coupon for this. I just checked my points and I had a lot more than I should. Sweet. Now I've got like $15 towards my next game.

Anybody else realize that Tess is voiced by Claudia Black, aka Chloe from Uncharted.

I was sitting at the farm and heard her talking, and immediately thought I was hearing Chloe. I think I remember knowing this from Destiny 1, but I forgot.
