News Comments > Destiny Still Destined for PCs?

I was playing hundreds of hours of destiny for a while there because the shooting mechanics was really fun and the raids were pretty good.

Now it's become a horrible, purposeful, grind fest for that illusion of in depth content when in reality it's actually extremely basic.

Pretty much, I feel like I won't be playing destiny again because they pretty much went the typical MMO Grind fest way.

I'd argue that this is exactly wrong. The grindiness that pervaded the earlier release is gone, and it's become far easier to get what you want.

The 2.0 update coming, along with the the next expansion pulls the game out of beta, in my mind. You still have to do stuff to get stuff, but it feels purposeful, with more varied choices on what and when you do things. They're doing away with the light-on-gear-to-level-up mechanic, and while light will still be there, you can hit max level without getting stuck (forever 29 is gone).

At the end of the day it's a progression-based shooter. Do you like shooting things and progressing when you do? Tada, Destiny. It's Diablo with trigger pulls instead of mouse clicks.

I don't like to shit on games, but thank god they killed this. That's a Modern Warfare trailer with more dystopian sci-fi skins, right down the "nuke going off not to far from you" sequence. The only way this could have been worse would have been if they'd opted to go mobile and called it Doomy Crush. Just... ugh.

After playing the Witcher3 how can anyone go back to this single player MMO turd?
What is this, Kotaku? What's with these stupid fanboy comments lately? More and more on this site. For the supposed "PC master race" you guys sound like a bunch of fucking 9 year olds.

Seriously, it's possible to enjoy Witcher and Dragon Age.

I like you. You're good people.

I unsubbed after getting through the main storyline of WoD prior to the first content patch. Garrisons seemed to hold a lot of promise, until it turned out it was FarmVille, even more so than the previous patch's actual Farm.

The neckbeard is strong with this thread.

Can't understand why Apple is popular? You probably like fucking with technology. For those out there who don't, it's gloss, shine, and 80% functionality. That remaining 20% is too fucking confusing (for them) to be worth it.

Don't you get it? It's great that you can change your dialer or swap out your web browser, or upgrade your video card... but for 9 out of 10 people that you meet they not only won't do this, but they actively will avoid it if at all possible.

It's embarrassing that you can't see it. It's shocking that you don't get why Apple is raking in money hand over fist. It's amusing that you think they're going anywhere any time soon.

It shows how very out of touch you are.

That's a shit trailer, the tone is completely off.

Just tell me the fuckwit who came up with the three-colour ending isn't part of this.

The tone is off... from what, exactly? The old trilogy? Guess what: it's not that.

Space cowboys are awesome.

Why any gamer wouldn't move to Win 10 and DX12 is beyond me.

I'm going to throw a word at you here. I want you to brace yourself and just try to take it in. It's a big one.

King's Quest made being stuck with a goofy name like Graham a lot easier as a kid. I sincerely hope this is the first of many new games. It looks fantastic and I couldn't be more excited.

Jay Wilson was wrong and you're wrong for bringing him up. Best to be silent and be thought a fool, friend, as you're doing a great job of removing all doubt at the moment.

Jesus how comes that everytime Rockstar announce anything PC related, they sound like they have a sarcastic smirk on their face?

Copy-pasting an apology, too... Fucking hell.

PS: Let me correct nin as someone who isn't even waiting for the game: It ain't funny. These last-second delays are a fucking joke and it should raise many eyebrows to their management and how this could be a sign to an optimization clusterfuck once again.

You should really chat with a medical professional about something to lower your blood pressure.

I picked up Grim Fandango on PS4 and I'm pleased for the most part. It's remastered... kind of, but good enough. The big change that makes it worth the money? Camera relative controls.

Seriously. $15 well spent.

Robb seems like his heart is in the right place, but just as that 2K representative lurked at the back of the room, a massive corporation with stock and investors looms over the whole operation.

Tells you all you need to know.

Hey, Robb? Think about who you shack up with next time, and maybe people won't think badly of you?

Did you read the rest of the article, where it points out that this project was rescued from the brink after THQ cratered? You think that maybe they didn't have a choice?

The judgement is strong here, but this to me seems like a good solution: sell the game, include all the maps, and sell optional characters to keep the funding going. Assuming that the DLC characters are priced reasonably I can't imagine why anyone has a problem.

Thar's gold in them thar titles. Seriously. How can they not update these? Same game + new engine = profit. While most of us don't want to see classic movies updated, it's the opposite with games. I'd be happy as a pig in poo to see almost the entire - early - LA library updated/redone. All the Star Wars games, Outlaws, Day of the Testicle, Grim Fandango - and no what DF is doing doesn't count - etc. That's just money waiting to be made.

All of my yes. All of it.

HotS will eat into the LoL audience; it's a similar model with a better client and characters that have a built-in audience. That's not to say that LoL is dead, but the schism will happen between HotS and LoL, not HotS and DOTA2.

If you're feeling punchy, you're gonna play DOTA2. If you're looking for more of a casual experience, HotS might be it. The only thing Blizzard needs to fix at this point is the pricing model - they either need to adjust in-game gold so that it's more rewarding or they need to lower costs. Right now their prices are untenable.

MoreLuckThanSkill wrote on Dec 25, 2014, 15:43:
Exp bonus... yeah a Legendary drop bonus would have made much more sense, and even been in theme with the Holidays.

Few people are playing right now, waiting for the next patch to drop, with a relatively large shakeup in the legendaries... at the very least, a legendary drop increase now would have led to more Forgotten Souls once the patch hits.

It seriously feels like Blizzard has their B or C team on Diablo 3 at this point.

On the plus side, Grim Dawn seems to be coming along pretty well, and it's moddable even if it doesn't turn out great on release.

*EDIT* Typo.

I guess you're really not accounting for everyone who got it for Christmas. I took a week off for D3 at launch (so many regrets) but I've just picked it up for PS4.

Oddly enough, it's more fun on PS4ľat least through D3 classic. The controls are tight. The PC version is more competitive and harder, but lying back in bed and playing on a 106" screen with a controller is a more enjoyable experience right now.

Anyway, this buff is great for people like me - and I think with the recent price drop on PSN there are going to be a lot of us.

Why did you fuck up Diablo you bastards?

It's really not that hard to figure out: it was in development hell for a decade when someone said "why don't we build a full-priced product with a weird f2p/auction house mechanic driving the loot system"

And instead of that person being booed out of the boardroom, they were put in charge of the project.
