Ha. You should have been in the Strike I ran with Codey during the Beta. We spent the first two minutes falling off platforms. The random third guy who was with us probably thought we were both drunk.

Sounds good to me. -shrugs- 

 

Masterwork weapons sound like a lot of fun. I like the idea of straight up purchasing armour sets I want which will be very helpful with the Season 2 Iron Banner sets. The updates to Xur sound great. And getting more stuff is never a bad thing. 

post #705 of 1052

I'm just glad they're reducing Exotic duplication. I've had the same exotic weapon or armor piece way too many times. I think getting an engram which gives you an exotic only to receive a duplicate might be one of the most crushing experiences in the game. 

post #706 of 1052

QFT. Every time I get a duplicate Starfire Protocol I die a little inside...

post #707 of 1052
As payment for allowing so many exotic duplicates, they should give you an amount of silver when you break them down instead of gun parts.

Shipping update: It's going to be a week before I'm shooting aliens and falling off of things.

But not necessarily in that order.

post #710 of 1052

Due to appointments at work, this is the first Friday since I started playing Destiny 2 that I've not been able to log on at 9am and run excitedly like a small child to see what Xur is selling. Grrrrrrr.

 

#FirstWorldProblems

 

ETA: Arghhhh. He's selling everything I already have!!!!

HE'S SELLING SKULL OF DIRE AHAMKARA THE BEAUTIFUL CTHULU FATHER CHRISTMAS!!!
post #712 of 1052
I already have Lucky Raspberry, but not Sweet Business. I'll pick up the warlock and Titan gear as well. First couple of weeks I was only picking up Hunter gear. Then I was like "why the hell am I not buying everything?"
post #713 of 1052

/Sigh. Another week of Xur stuffing my stockings at least with sadness and disappointment. There are still three exotics that I'm missing which are the same three exotics that I've been missing for probably the last 6-7 weeks and Xur just keeps holding out on me. (fwiw those are the Nighthawk for the Hunter, the crown of arc goodness for the Warlock, and the Alpha Lupi for the Titan). All in good time I suppose. 

 

Figures that the expansion is dropping next week - I'll certainly play it - but damn if at this point I know exactly when. Who would of thought that a Destiny expansion would have taken back seat to Warframe (for me) but we're coming up on a time where there is just to damn much to do in Warframe that I'm just not sure when I'll be able to pull away for Curse - 

  1.  Starting today - Operation Plague Star hits consoles (where I play) and runs for the next 10 days - need to farm the **** out of that event and try like hell to complete my Hunter mod set (limited time event)
  2. Just as that wraps up, on Dec. 12th,  a new prime pack comes out which means a new Prime Warframe (by all accounts Mirage) along with two new Prime weapons to farm (and relics to farm for said prime parts) 
  3. Just about when that's done - the Stalker Acolytes are scheduled to return with a whole bunch of mods that  need to be added to the mix (limited time event)
  4. Finally, there's is the Winter unvaulting of ??? (early rumors point to Ember and Nyx) which means even more relic farming. (limited time event). While I have Ember, I don't have Nyx Prime and presumably there were a few weapons from either / both of those prime packs that I'm missing

 

Even when I do complete those sets - the duplicates from all of it go fairly quickly in trade chat - which means I can then pick up some of the very dope looking new skins that were released After all we all know by now, that FashionFrame is of utmost importance while fishing off Dick Rock (named after Richard who discovered it and not at all because it looks like a dick)

 

So seriously - why aren't more of you PS4 scrubs playing this? I need a better group for teralyst farming :)

post #714 of 1052

I tried to get into Warframe on the PC and it just didn't happen for me. I enjoyed the maneuverability of the main character and the character designs themselves are pretty great, but I just found the combat.... lacklustre? One of the reasons I enjoy Destiny so much is that I really love the gunplay in this game. All of the weapons feel distinct but, more importantly, they feel good to wield, and when I die, I know it's due to me and not the game. I'm sure I'll give Warframe another try at some point and maybe it'll finally click with me....

post #715 of 1052

Oh, no worries - Warframe certainly isn't for everybody - and with any / all of the concerns folks have with Destiny, the gunplay isn't one of them (not by a long shot). Having said that - Warframe does take some time to get your head around but once you do - I have found it to be far better than I ever anticipated it might be, there's just so much depth and customization available. Also, not sure how long ago you tried Warframe (or how long you played) - but the game has changed dramatically (for the better) over the last couple of years and I actually find the combat to be quite satisfying. If it's been awhile since you checked it out, I highly encourage anybody to take another look - but since this isn't meant to be a Destiny vs. Warframe (since really, outside of being a 'looter-shooter' they're not apples to apples) and I don't want to hijack the thread - my only real point was for Tzu in that with the Curse expansion, if my raid slot needs to be filled - feel free (unless one of the drops ends up being the OG Fatebringer in which case I'll figure out how to deal without sleep for a bit :) )

post #716 of 1052

Does Warframe still have such a labyrinthine crafting system that's confusing as fuck? Cause that, and feeling a lack of progression really killed my interest in it. 

 

Got my Warlock helm I've been chasing forever and Sweet Business for my Titan so I'm very happy with Xur this week.

If I were to ever non-ironically say Destiny was dead today would be the day.

Yes.  But the crafting system isn't nearly as confusing as you might initially think.  It's actually quite great.  As for lack of progression, just the act of chasing Warframes with a new set of four powers while playing the story was good enough to hold my interest for a long time.  I'll be interested to see how Destiny holds up considering the extreme lack of variety ability compared to Warframe.

post #719 of 1052

What I like about Destiny 2 is that it's simple. 

 

Find abilities you like, find weapons that feel good to you. Find armour that looks awesome. Then go to town on them gleep glorps and the fun, if basic, PVP.

 

It's not a massive timesink, it doesn't consume my life, it never feels like work. It's just a great time I can jump into when I can.

Heh, I didn't say that I was "done" with Destiny :) I still quite enjoy the game, and playing the raids with the group remains some of the best time I've had playing video games period. Having said that - I've also been pretty clear that the raid in Destiny 2 is my least favorite of the ones released thus far (and yes, that includes the Dark Below) and the fact that the expansion's 'raid' takes place in the same "space" (but different rooms since its such a big ship) doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy. 

 

I'm sure I'll still run through it if for no other reason than the group interaction - but since Warframe has my attention for the next few weeks, I'm not going to grind hard to be 'raid ready' as soon as possible so if that means giving up my slot for the time being - that's a choice I'm willing to make

Heh... if y'all were using the app you'd have seen the announcement for that yesterday.

post #725 of 1052

I did see it but the PST time fucked with my head a bit. Thought it was supposed to be last night...

post #726 of 1052

Can my Titan buy the Warlock helmet from Xur and put it in the vault (in case I later decide to start a Warlock) or can characters only buy items for their class?

Yes. Always buy Xur gear on your highest character so it is at 270 when you get it. Xur will scale with your Power level.

post #728 of 1052

Really quiet weekend for gaming posts 'round here. Anyhoo, the first DLC hits tomorrow, right? Is that console and PC? Should I go ahead and get it even if I haven't finished the main quest? Also, I really need to finish the campaign, I guess.

post #729 of 1052

I was supposed to go play with Sax and Dalyn on Saturday but power outage prevented me from frollicking with them.

 

You certainly can get Osiris if you want! I'm looking forward to it personally and ready and willing. My Warlock is on 295, my Titan's on 291 and my Hunter's on 272.

 

I think you're only like two missions from finishing Jacob and those two final missions are the best in the game! Do eeeeeet! Then you can run some Strikes and Events with us. :D 

 

Also; I wanna Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaid! 

post #730 of 1052

Does the DLC hit tomorrow? I'd been thinking it was Friday so that's a nice treat. 

post #731 of 1052

It's tomorrow, but I'm not picking it up until I get paid on Friday.  I usually don't play during the week anyways, so no big thang.  Just got my second character to lvl 20 this weekend.  Now to do a Titan.

post #732 of 1052

I'm going to stick to just my Titan until I get bored of punching aliens or robots in their evil faces.

 

Which will probably be never. 

post #733 of 1052

Sweet Business + Actium War Rig = GOD OF BULLETS! 

 

So much fun. Although Titan is probably my least favourite class. Warlock remains my bae but Hunters are a blast to play and I love their armour and the knife throw on Gunslinger is AWESOME, the only downside is that they're so damn fragile. Damn glass cannon class.

 

Maybe I'm spoiled by my Devour Voidlock but the other classes just die too damn easy.

post #736 of 1052

I've just read that the PC download for the expansion is 68Gbs! That seems..... a lot? Was hoping to do my milestones today but I guess I'll spend half of the evening updating the game when I get home.

Jesus, I'm gonna have to delete some stuff again to make space.

 

Remember when the thought of filling a 2TB Hard Drive seemed impossible? Aaaah, a simpler time...

Anyhoo, here's a preview of some new Exotics.

 

That Chest Piece and Hand Cannon. HMMM! Sexy.

 

And Sax, I better see you running around with that helmet!

post #740 of 1052

That's a Titan helmet? Good grief. I'll keep an eye out for The Helm Of Demonic Unicorns, as its probably called.

post #741 of 1052

Also just noticed we're only 3000 XP away from reaching the third Clan rank. We can doooooooooooo it!

Pretty sure that resets today sadly...

Wut?

post #745 of 1052

Wut what?

 

ETA: Okay Polygon says the expansion itself isn't 68Gbs, but that the game will take up 68Gbs as a whole once the expansion is included. That sounds much better.

post #746 of 1052

I was wutting an expansion being 15GB bigger than your average large game at 50GB.  WoW in its entirety for me is 90.  60 plus for one expansion sounded insane.

post #747 of 1052

Yeah, that threw me a bit for a loop as well. 

 

Probably won't get to play much tonight anyway due to another round of server maintenance and the pre-load. Guess I could always finish watching Punisher even though it sadly bores me for the most part...

post #748 of 1052

This is what happens when you listen to stupid British tabloids talking about gaming, I guess. 

post #749 of 1052

68GB is the disk space requirement.

88 on consoles. We're going Back to the Future.

Also, you PC guys have screwed the rest of us. Because Bungie don't want the DLC datamined the pre-load begins only an hour before reset.

Which is probably more indicative of the content being ass. This DLC makes it breaks this franchise. The QoL improvements aren't gonna do it. The end game better be stepped up somehow unless Bungie is fine with its hardcore Twitch fan base running off to do other things after four weeks of play.
post #750 of 1052

On a personal level, I'm not really expecting the DLC today to do much to alleviate the current problems many have with the game, but maybe it'll be a start. I'm just happy it's bumping up the max level so I've got more to strive for (and therefore keep playing), and adding more exotic items for me to seek out. The fact it's adding another area so I'm not doing the same vanilla worlds over and over is also a bonus. 

 

Wish the expansion campaign was a little longer, though.
