News Comments > Destiny 2 PC Rumors
9. Re: Destiny 2 PC Rumors Sep 27, 2016, 22:19 MoreLuckThanSkill
 
I remember being pretty impressed by the pre-release Destiny videos, but all the console people I know who played are already thoroughly sick of the game. Too much grind, apparently.

Still, I'd pick up Destiny 1 PC version if they made it, for $9.99 or something.

I'll believe Destiny 2 will be out on PC when I actually see it, there were Destiny 1 PC rumors too, for awhile.

"What a shitty landing, clearly he should have also taxied off the runway afterwards." -paraphrasing half the comments

Looks gorgeous, but Battlefield is all about the multiplayer. This should be either icing on the cake or irrelevant to your decision to purchase, at this point.

So far the lowest I've seen the (base) game for is $52.99 on Greenmangaming, and that has the added hassle of being in the UK, which can flag some peoples' credit card fraud protection.

use code VIP3

I paid 45.39 and I always use paypal and have never had any issues with GMG

Hey, thanks a lot!

Hrm, I need to make a habit of actually logging in to greenmangaming before checking the price, apparently. Log in price: $46.79 or something, non-login price, $52.99.

Well, now I'm committed. Battlefield had better turn out to be really good.

*EDIT* With VIP3, it dropped to $45.39, thanks

Hrm, I've had my eye on Hyper Light Drifter for awhile, tempted to buy it on this sale, but the queue is utterly ridiculous at the moment.

I need to win the lottery and quit my job just to have time to play these games.

Jesus, what a gong show that debate was. I almost feel sorry for you America but you brought this on yourself. I guar-an-fucking-tee you nezt election - if WWIII hasn't happened - Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho *will* be President next!

Almost? I feel more embarrassed about this current crop of politicians than ever before in my life, and we already had Reagan in office with Alzheimer's, George Bush Sr. puking on the Japanese Prime Minister, and of course Clinton getting blown in the White House by interns. Politicians have been a laughing stock for decades.

Lower level ones are even worse, but these fools are supposed to be leading the country. Time to move to Antarctica.

I think I'll add that guy's book the queue; meth abuse started way earlier than most people realize, it seems pretty interesting.

Of course, they still give soldiers amphetamines even today in many countries, so behaviorally speaking, it's still relevant.

This looks fucking great!

Although, Jotun looks and sounds great also, but isn't that much fun for me when I actually play it...

Still, I'll keep an eye on this.

BF1942 is the best BF game ever.

BF:BC2, scoff.

BF2142... had some interesting stuff, but I sense some rose tinted nostalgia glasses here.

Rest assured though, there will be a BF2143 in about 4-6 years... they probably already made 100 million on BF1 preorders.

Ouch, people jumped in big time on GTA5 at $40? Not a good sign, for people hoping for better Steam deals, such as myself.


It's good to see D:OS2 on there though, although I'm probably going to pick up my Kickstarter key for that on Gog, not Steam.

I have some real doubts whether this is morally justified btw. As a KS project the models ought to belong to the Kickstarters no?

No way, I mean I understand where you're coming from, but in no way do any Kickstarter contributors own any assets or aspects of the finished game at all, except their promised backer reward, ie. a copy of the game, wallpapers, etc.

I have yet to see any Kickstarter project, or any crowdfunding project that indicates backers would literally have some ownership of created assets.

That's the way it should be, too. No one would bother crowd funding if the creators lost control of any part of the finished product...might as well go with a traditional publisher, they'll give you more money and steal everything.

And yeah, the nature of the Wasteland 2 models probably leads to them being a lot easier to resell for use in other games.

BFBC2 was pretty fun, but I think there are some rose-tinted nostalgia glasses in effect here.

BC2 also introduced: extremely low flight ceilings, and massive airborne fog of war to further limit choppers. Also because of map design, Uncap-spawn camping got completely out of hand on a lot of maps.

I can't remember if it was in BF2 also, but the tracking dart was also in BC2, which was arguably one of the worst additions to the Battlefield series, possibly the worst, until they added UCAV in BF4. Some hapless joker shoots your tank or helo with the tracking dart(as you MG his head off), then every no-aim RPG user on his team can lock onto your vehicle even from out of sight. Most annoying thing ever for vehicle players.

That said, I had hundreds of hours into BC2 and overall it was a great game.

Cheap, well made is good, but that also looks like it has no thumb or pinky finger buttons, ie. not really a gaming mouse.

I need a minimum of 4 buttons + wheel available, and my old brain likes to have at least a few buttons on the left and right sides if at all possible. Spider hand, attack!

I have Void Destroyer on Steam... I could never really get into it for some reason. Although I remember the original's graphics being a lot more realistic, or at least realistically colored. This is like a 1980's comic book palette.

Wtf, I could have sworn Road Rage was a trademarked game name by EA still.

This looks okay, but I'll probably stick with Road Redemption, to be honest.

Road Rash.

Oh yeah, right, right. Well it's only been like 25 years or so.

Interesting. I enjoyed Wasteland 2 quite a bit, and plan on going through the director's cut/enhanced edition or whatever when the queue clears up a bit, but I would not say their 3d models were the strong point of that game.

Functional, acceptable, somewhat generic, come to mind.
