Me too! Provided ping isn't gonna murder me. 

 

Always liked the look of Destiny so I'd like to try it out. 

post #4206 of 4276

Its a lot of fun! Just don't take it too seriously.


Then it is less fun.

post #4207 of 4276

It's lots of fun!  You don't even have to be like most people who are all about the raids and gear and whatever.  It's fun to play like I do.  Just turn your brain off, shoot some aliens in the face, and if you get some cool loot out of it, awesome!

post #4208 of 4276

Hooray alien face-shooting!  

 

Always liked where they ended up going with the design and world-building, and I'm happy to not have to buy a new console to play it!

post #4209 of 4276

Heh. Good trailer.

Did my eyes deceive me or was Tzu playing Destiny last night?  I've been all engrossed in Mass Effect but thought I saw that pop up.

I don't think so.  Last I played was a few weeks ago with you and Amos.

My favorite part of the presentation was where the guy excitedly exclaimed "WE'VE GOT ALL NEW UNIQUE WEAPONS FOR YOU..."

 

I would fucking hope so.

Whichever class has the 'fly around with a flaming sword' ability. 

 

I want to go to there.

You know if it's too awesome they'll just nerf it after a month or so.

post #4219 of 4276

Not that I needed much selling, but I'm sold. Matchmaking for raids is a huge plus. I still haven't done two of the four AoT raids thanks to real life getting in the way of shit.

post #4220 of 4276
I haven't watched the whole stream but if matchmaking for Raids is random like Strikes then I cannot wait for either the dumbed down Raids or the epic rage posts on Reddit.

It's not. If you have say five people in your in-game clan and need a sixth, randoms in-game can choose your opening to fill.

post #4223 of 4276

I liked the little bit I saw.  Didn't watch the whole thing.  I should be playing it in just under 4 months.  I'll just figure it out and enjoy the new missions then.

post #4224 of 4276

I might be officially out after watching this Strike footage. I was thinking I would at least give the Beta a go but this is ridiculous.

 

The writing is godawful atrocious. The Vex and Cabal I have seen before.  Protheon? What, Atheon was an amateur? The guns seem way overpowered against the enemies.

 

AND WHY THE EVER LOVING FUCK DID THAT GUARDIAN HAVE A FUCKING GHOST FOR AND WHY THE SHITSNACKING HELL IS HE USING GOLDEN GUN?!?!?!?!?!!??!!?!?

 

Did the Traveler not get paralyzed?  Isn't the central tenet of the game that the Light has gone out?!?! Why are we listening to that sorry shit who replaced Dinklebot still? Why is leveling still termed Light?

 

The strike was beautiful but I don't think Bungie will deliver on their promise to not make this a second job again.

post #4225 of 4276

Glad to hear you're excited :)

post #4226 of 4276

Anybody still playing Destiny 1 on Xbone? I'm a noob, still finishing the expansion stories, about to hit level 40 soon. I don't have any Xbox Live friends yet, so it'd be good to have other people to do strikes with or whatever. I'd also like to try raids at some point.

post #4227 of 4276

I checked the CHUD clan page on Bungie and it appears ShaolinMK was the only Chewer who was playing on 360.  I think D.T. might have played with a few folks but I have no idea if Shaolin moved on to the Xbone or what console D.T. was on if he did play.

 

At some point they apparently combined the Clans but no one on the roster is listed as an Xbox player, all PS. 

 

That just means you'll need a Pro to play D2 I guess. :D

I was out when they announced they will have NO dedicated servers.

 

Fuck that noise. Which is a shame as I'd like to try this game.

Apparently that is going over in the PC community like a lead balloon.  I don't know what the difference between that and the P2P system they have always used is, but I assume it has something to do with ping/latency and lag but the arrogance with which they flat out said,

 

 

is stunning only if you hadn't been listening to them talk to their player base for the past three years. The amount of money they made off the game, GOY releases, DLC and microtransactions should have put dedicated servers at the top of the list.

 

An additional gripe is the fact that they are introducing so many ways to matchmake and increase the Clans system so people will be able to meet more people to play with BUT.... are reducing all the Crucible play lists to 4 people from 6 is typical Bungie stupidity. WHY MAKE IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE TO MEET PEOPLE SO THEY CAN PLAY TOGETHER BUT THEN MAKE IT HARDER FOR ALL OF THEM TO PLAY TOGETHER?!?!?!

Pretty much. P2P systems are just a massive pain in the ass when it comes to matchmaking. Which pretty much kills PVP in the cradle. As seen most recently with For Honor. And when you're outside of North America, Europe or Asia like myself (or many others) it makes PVE fucking unplayable. Ping with something like Overwatch for me can be harsh (150-200ms) but I can still play the fucking game. Even if it isn't competively. But this is more like Mass Effect: Andromeda's multiplayer. Which IS fucking unplayable for me, despite actually enjoying that gameplay. 

 

So yeah, thanks for saving me some money Bungie.

Thanks for checking. A PS4 Pro will probably be my next console purchase. I'll see how the deals are looking this November. I do really like the Xbone controller, though. Feathering that right trigger feels nice.

post #4232 of 4276

Strangely enough, my PS4 works just fine when I log on to shoot aliens in the face. But I guess that's because I'm just a filthy casual.

SOooooooo...


Thoughts on this Destiny folks?

 

post #4234 of 4276

I have no idea what Warframe is so ... my thought is that that video sucks without even watching it.

post #4235 of 4276

 For the price (free), figured I'd give Warframe a look before replying - and over the last couple of days put in probably 5-6 hours with more to come today. At this point I've progressed through the first two planets and should be pretty close to hitting my third with my first Warframe (class) getting close to max level (30). I do find it odd, that with a the weapons that appear to be available, I'm still using the three that I started the game with - less by choice, than the simple fact that I haven't opened up enough of the game to actually unlock (build) anything else.

 

To Warframe's credit, its a fun game and pretty solid. Also, looking at a few videos out there, it is from all appearances not as Pay-2-Win as I may have believed earlier. If a few of the PS4 Destiny folks were to go ahead and actually download it - I could see some good times to be had at least until Destiny 2 shows up.

 

I'll also quickly put out there - that with the amount of time I've put into the game, there's still a lot more I don't understand about Warframe than I do - but that's to be expected.

 

However, having said that - playing the game doesn't remind me of Destiny - the title it does remind me far more of, is a PvE focused Battleborn without all the silly MOBA style leveling in a PvE space. That's not a dig btw, I actually quite liked what Battleborn could have been. I say this not only from the 3rd person perspective, but also the overall mission structure. 

 

For the sake of time, I won't go over the VS. video point for point (and many of the video's 35 points are just silly anyway) - but at the end of the day, Warframe is NOT a "Destiny Killer". For the flaws that Destiny has (and it does have some) - it gets so many things right and as a package is still something really quite special. From what I've seen - Warframe has a long way to go before it can even begin to think about calling itself "better" than Destiny. Warframe is good and I'm intrigued enough to play some more of it - and really Warframe vs. Destiny isn't really apples to apples anyway - but just as Killzone didn't overthrow Halo, Warframe isn't about to overthrow Destiny any time soon.

A good pitch video that teaches some things the game does a poor job of.

post #4237 of 4276

So having crossed the 10 hour mark (indicated by the trophy) Warframe continues to impress me. I still stand by my impressions that the game isn't "better" than Destiny - but I also stand by my statement that comparing the two isn't really apples to apples in any event. I'm  at Mastery rank 3 and getting a much better handle on things (although there is still plenty that I'm sure I don't understand) and progressing (I'm guessing) fairly well. I'm just about to finish Mars hitting the Phobos junction but need to find two more of those blue clusters to scan on Mars before I can. I'll also open up the other junction on Mars after finishing the boss battle on Phobos since all of those other objectives are now met.

 

Now - if only I could get a few more PS4 folks on my friends list to download this as well..... Matchmaking with randoms is fine for some missions (mainly void fragment and boss battle runs) - but we all know that games like this really shine when played with friends.

By better I think the implication is significantly more content rich, with pretty deep customization and systems that destiny doesn't really have.

The more I play of Warframe and sink into it the more I LOVE IT.  It is crack.

post #4240 of 4276

PS4 folks need to step it up here people :)

 

Tzu has at least downloaded Warframe but I'm not sure if he's played beyond the 1st introduction mission at this point

RP is off for 10 weeks, but seemingly can't get enough of Overwatch to even fire it up

FC - well, is FC and I'll give him a little latitude as I presume he's banking game hours with his wife for D2 (be a man, Stan)

and the rest of y'all seem to be playing Injustice 2 (which I can't argue against, great game, but there is time for 2) or Friday the 13th

Luft at least has been playing - so there's that. Where he is during the week for the most part, however, I have no idea (Oh Luftiee Luu - where are you?)

 

Gah

Warframe just keeps expanding and expanding and expanding.  I just got my archewing researched which lets you do outside space jet pack battles, and I made a dojo my friends have joined and there's this Xcom like system of unlocking rooms and making this huge epic base together.  I built a sword last night that's waaaaay better than my duel heat swords just to make my friends jealous, and now I have a quest to get a dog companion which helps me fight and collects loot, and I built a little drone to help me battle.  I also just unlocked Mars and there's like a billion more things to do. It starts out as "OK, neat little F2P thing" but it just keeps... Growing.

post #4243 of 4276

Those of you Destiny 2ing better be ready when it hits.  Better have those FPS skills TIGHT.  Stay frosty...

post #4248 of 4276

I'm at 388 Light in Destiny. This crawl to 400 is gonna be epic.

 

I'm mainly using FWC Pulse Rifle with fast draw, and FWC sidearm pistol.

 

Crucible is a lot more fun than I thought it would be, since there are plenty of people as bad at aiming as I am. I can score in the middle of the pack most of the time. That FOV is killer, though. If somebody goes over your head or gets around your side, fuhgeddaboudit, you're dead. I tried setting my aim sensitivty higher than 3, but that didn't go too well.

As a guy who's never gotten the chance to play Destiny, I'm glad it's not next year.
