So dumb. I'll be boycotting this one too, and any other BF games until 2143.

It's not really free if I'm required to pay my attention to your newsletter, or pay my effort to signing up for your newsletter.

Getting tired of the "Free" word.

You remind me of reddit's choosybeggars sub. The other day, someone was ranting that a free piano listed on Craigslist wasn't really free if the person needed to come pick it up - to be free, it should be delivered to the home of whomever wanted it.

Culture of entitlement. It's the new norm for the "You're all #1 winners!" generation.

LOL, you beat me too it. Was going to say something very similar to that. Millennials!!!

I'm not a millennial, and that's an invalid analogy, Beamer. Do us a favor and post something with value.

Destiny 2 can't make a comeback if they're being boycotted (which I hope all of you are doing), unless Destiny 2 can finish everything that was supposed to be finished (and do it now), undo all the mistakes they made, reimburse players, and bring back all the loot Destiny 1 players had and make that viable again.

Is that what happens in a corporate environment? Once you reach a high position, you cannot request demotion back to the stuff that you like to do. Would it not be a better to demote and keep the stability of Blizzard employment instead of trading in all that seniority for ground-floor uncertainty?
No. Game designers do not want to work for someone else. They want to make their own games. He's got enough now to take the risk to make a product that will sell well, and profit. And he's not trading in seniority. Seniority is a permanent record.

Blizzard is really working hard on all sorts of ideas to make back the tons of money they lost during Titan development.

The thing about these PVE modes is that they come with official difficulty modes, and so you typically desire to play/beat the highest one, of course.

The problem is though that, again, drama amongst your team. Your teammates' skill varies, and therefore complaints will come about each other's performance and it just puts a bad taste in your mouth for the whole game.

They really need to stop with the 4-man, and 6-man team stuff and start making more 16-man, 32-man clusterf*ck stuff.

I have no interest in these PvE events anymore because beating Legendary mode requires so much team work and coordination, that team drama is inevitable.

How do you have a shot spread flaw in a game whose credits page lasts for 30 minutes, and has had competitive tournaments?

News Comments > Destiny 2 Quitters to be Punished
8. Re: etc. Mar 23, 2018, 13:18 deqer
 
Bungie continuing to be bad, as usual. Waiting for players to complain about quitters before implementing a punishment system for quitters. Like they didn't expect that to happen. Bright...

Companies who think trolls and leavers don't exist and develop their game based on that, are bad at game design. Or if they knew it existed, but waited until after the fact--are still bad.

Please get out, and spare us already.

It's not free. You're paying your attention and time to this giveaway, and by logging into Origin you are filling up their stats so they can see how many people are still active.

GASP! God forbid! Inquisitive

As much as I'd like to, I still haven't even bought a SSD for my desktop PC, as I simply can't justify the ridiculous cost over a (much larger) HDD.
I was like this too, but then I got an SSD. Having instant boot times, and instant response times on everything was worth it and I feel I've gotten my money back from those time savings.

The thing is, I leave my PC on 24/7, and reboots happen infrequently. So the only way an SSD would make sense for me would be to get one large enough to replace my main drive, that also has all my software and games - which means 1TB at the absolute minimum, with a 2TB making me feel more comfortable. Otherwise, there would be no benefit and it would be a waste (ie. with just my OS on a smaller drive).

A 1TB M2 drive would cost me about $300 US minimum (and they can go up to twice that), whereas I can get a 10TB (!!) HDD for about the same amount (or a 1TB HDD for $45). There's just no way. Sure, I can afford it, but I certainly can't justify it.

I'm doing what Ozmodan said (below), somewhat. I use a 256mb SSD for primary drive that does not contain a lot of software on it. I use a 512MB SSD for my secondary drive which is for games.

I keep my installed games limited to only 20 or so. But yeah, might suck if you're installing big 60gb games like Doom.
