News Comments > Destiny 2 Launch Trailer
3. Re: Destiny 2 Launch Trailer Aug 21, 2017, 22:50 Jivaro
 
I pre-ordered and beta tested the first one on PS4. It was a great game in many ways however I suck at shooters with a gamepad. Horribly. I gave it a good effort because I did like the game itself but I ended up cancelling the pre-order and bailing on the whole game because I knew I would hit my fun ceiling really quickly given my lack of gamepad skill.

If they released the first game on PC with mouse controls I would buy it in a heartbeat. Sequels aren't always better so I will wait until after release to see reviews and judge player responses. That said, playing a Destiny game with a mouse seems like a lot of fun waiting to be had.

Give MS a millimeter and they will try to take a mile.....when they can't take the mile they simply cut bait leaving paying customers hanging rather than actually improving the product to customer expectations. This isn't unique to gaming, this is how MS does business.

I don't care how many different game launching platforms I use but giving MS money for any game given their actions and failures of the last decade just seems like asking to be taken advantage of. Again.

This is great. The trip down memory lane is terrific. From what I have experienced so far they did a fantastic job with this remaster.

I am as streamer indifferent as anyone but streaming is part of the future of the gaming industry whether you, me, or whomever like it or not and the devs/pubs are just adjusting to the times in ways that acknowledge the wants/needs of their current and future player base. Can't blame them for that, they would be pretty horrible at business in general if they didn't adapt to industry changes brought on by the interests of the customers. Seems pretty no-brainer to do what you can to eliminate anyone who makes it their sole mission to ruin the fun of others, streamers or otherwise. *shrug*

Looks fun...love it when games I had no idea were being developed suddenly appear and they check multiple boxes on my "preferences" list.

I have no problem with calling it a sport. You have to train for it and it's competitive...good enough for me I guess.

That said, the name comes across as trying a bit too hard. I get that "games" is more immature sounding (in english) than "sports" but I can't imagine it makes much difference in terms of the target market.

Despite it's many flaws, I find this game to be fairly entertaining in bursts. I have no idea what "endgame" or guild content is like but leveling up and Foundry stuff was fun.

Heh, was just lamenting the lack of a good old-fashioned Star Citizen thread yesterday.

I should be careful what I wish for.

Was just remembering that post from yesterday as I was reading the headline... lol...

I wish I had a car that drove itself. Being physically disabled with a painful back condition makes driving for any real distance seem like torture and driving in California traffic becomes more like a descent into hell. I will be using a robot car as soon as I can afford it. People, generally speaking, suck at driving and my injury has made me hate doing it myself anyway.

SFV is easily the most disappointed I have ever been in a major fighting-game franchise release. This character isn't just bad..it's like "in the history of the franchise" bad. The DOA franchise doesn't even have a DLC character this bad and that is saying something.

That's a lot of assumptions but I can't say I disagree with any of them.

I do find myself wondering if that is only because I am desperately hoping that they are in fact actively trying to find a way to salvage the Mass Effect series rather than just shitcan it...or worse...double down on it's current direction.

It's definitely one of the first I remember playing on my Atari 800. We're old men in this crowd.

Atari 800? What the hell is this? Some newish artsy fartsy stuff? Is my Atari 2600 not good enough for you, you damned hipster?

B...b...but the 2600 doesn't have a floppy drive!

But there was an Atari console that did! The Atari XEGS was the half console/half computer hybrid. (finally found the name online) My friends had Nintendos and I had that. If anyone doesn't know what it was you should google it and admire it in all of it's pastel colors and big button glory. As luck would have it, it turns 25 years old this year as it was released in 87.

Damn..25 years...jeezus...

Old man Eidolon disapproves of these shenanigans.

So pleased I wasn't the only one who immediately thought of this. I think that may actually be the first game I played on a home computer.

It's definitely one of the first I remember playing on my Atari 800. We're old men in this crowd.

ahh..the 400/800, the ST, and that weird half console/half computer version of the ST...forget the number designation. I was the one guy in my group of friends that was an Atari user. Loved them. Most of my buddies were commodore/amiga fans. Good old days.

If you like D3 it's totally worth it, but I will admit that 10 probably would have seemed more fair. That said, if you are burnt out or never liked it I am not really sure any price would have been a good one.
