Oh and I'll say this:

I managed to play through almost the entire campaign without ever seeing another player enter a campaign mission with me, even though I had my fireteam set to "public".

I don't know if there's some magic thing to enable to actually get people entering my game, but GODDAMN was the campaign lonely doing it all solo.

That was the only redeeming feature of D1, was that I played through all the co-op shit with other people. Don't know if it was cause console had a larger player base, or they just fucked the PC over on purpose. But that's kinda bullshit.

The game itself isn't essentially shitty, Bungie make good shooters. There isn't alot else going on, but the shooting mechanics are fun. And the PvP I've been enjoying.

However the late-game grind is RIDICULOUS. I mean if you've seen videos the only real way to get to level 300 light level (in order to have a hope of doing the raid) is to literally make a second, or ever 3rd toon in the same class so that you can do the very few missions that are guaranteed to give you +5 light level drops. You have to run through the entire campaign... so dumb

And you're encourages to not even get rewards from the vendors that you do missions for until light level 270 or so, because this is your only chance to get better loot, and you essentially "waste" your oppertunity by claiming them too early.

Fucked it up already?That's okay, just make another identical toon and play through the WHOLE GAME again.

I never did the raid on the first game, only because finding 6 people on console was too much for me to organize. I doubt I'll do it on PC because the leveling is just retarded.

We'll see how good the SP campaign is. It was Criterion yes, but also EA Motive which I think was the remains of Bioware Montreal that did the not amazing Mass Effect: Andromeda I believe.

Also, whatever the loot box shit is, I highly doubt it'll be worse than the perma-grind in Destiny 2. So much wrong with that game, and the whole structure of it is entirely built around perma grinding.

Juice is way too much sugar at once, it nukes your pancreas which going into overdrive trying to turn that sugar into fat as fast as possible to deal with it. You need the fiber associated with eating fruits to slow that process down, give the sugars something to bind to.

NO MORE SOYLENT IN CANADA!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Amazon has delisted them too.. .fuck meeeee I should have stocked up. So sad this week

Well, that would fall under the category of "tool-assisted" if you count multiple humans as tools

Also, that Attack on Titan game looks fucking tits!

I tried the official attack on titan console game, and it was dull as fuck. It had decent production values, but the combat was so hand-holdey. You just don't get the thrill of the fight with a controller, this new implementation using KM+M controls looks FAR more satisfying.

Here's hoping that the rights holders don't destroy this project like Nintendo would.

<3 this review on the Jesus gamer review... man I'm not religious, in fact I think it's a poison on society, but goddamn I can't help but have respect for these guys. That was an actual proper tasteful review. No they don't agree with the "morality" part, but at no point do they make any judgement calls, they specifically say: "if you think you might be offended at this stuff, you definitely will in this game" Which is totally true. At no point do they say "this IS bad, this IS tasteless"

Props Jesus guys.

It seems like a big list, but most of them are small issues for pretty niche setups.

This one, however Closing Application: When closing Destiny 2 on PC, players must close the application via mouse input. Controllers cannot select the in-game button to close the Destiny 2 application. is just freaking nuts.
Who the hell is using a controller in a FPS game on PC?

Actually, Destiny is probably the best-feeling FPS game I've ever played with a controller. Somehow they dialled the auto-aim assist shit juuust right so it's very satisfying, without feeling like you're being hand-held too much.

I'd consider it just to play the game from a couch with 110 FOV and 60 fps, 2 things which are currently impossible on console.

Also consider that the game is 90% PvE content (with co-op), so a controller is fine. I'm not really too stoked for the fucking 4v4 multiplayer zzzzzzzzzzzz. So using a quick-twitch KB+M setup isn't required most of the time.

My god your full of yourself Slick. Whatís the point of debating something and then shiting over any credibility you have with that disgusting attitude. Everything you said could have been correct, but it doesnít mean jack if your words are considered garbage. As a 3rd party reading this discussion Iím automatically on the other side just so that Iím not agreeing with a person like you.

Well, I should make a point for the record, as a 3rd party you might not know that this bitch has been hounding me for a week on this topic. And intentionally misunderstanding what I'm saying then demagoguing me, painting me as a villain. So that's what I'm up against. I know simply stating this fact (if you care to read it up for yourself in past threads) will probably just paint me as more of a villain for even "talking like that". That's a little trick that people with nothing but poison in their hearts use against their opponents, they can act so abhorrent towards you, that even the act of describing what just happened to you in any detail makes you sound like an asshole. It's very cute, but only works on weak minds.

NOBODY has given me a counter on 2 points:

1) RNG drops have been a part of gaming since gaming's inception

2) Convenience shortcuts have been around for a decade and no one has even blinked.

But for some reason when you combine them together it's the shit storm of the century. We haven't even gotten to a debate yet, as we can't even seem to agree on what the fuck the topic is, or what the facts are. By just stating the above 2 facts is MORE than enough to get my critics riled into a right froth and start rending my words meaningless.

You tell me what I'm to make of it? And I should better defend myself against constant attacks? I'm all ears.

I've been bored out of my mind looking for new games to play, what are you referring to that is coming out this season?

Started South park today, pretty stoked, but it's a very mellow buzz, I can't wait to get back into the skies as a Starfighter in the new Battlefront for some adrenaline. That and the new Assassins Creed which looks like it's the first open-world they've done properly.

And JESUS CHRIST. Don't you love my band of groupies or what? They just can't help themselves! They're doing backflips into a mosh pit trying to figure out who can obfuscate the best ^_^ I type concise well-composed sentences, and I LITERALLY get guttural noises in response.

Such a swamp this forum has become. And I'm starting to feel like Yoda alone in the wet, hoping some Padawan will come carry the torch so some light can still permeate through these synthetic wetlands... cause I'm about to fucking up and die in this bitch. LOL

I agree, I think that the existing gameplay loops or "grind" are already the highest evolution of the gambling loop that exists today. It can work without even needing a monetary reward!

I'd be FAR more concerned if I EVER caught my kid playing World of Warcraft fishing in a remote village for 7 days straight in the hopes of a 0.004% ice gem drop that he/she could sell on the marketplace for n gold. This is based on a true story, the friend never caught the ice gem, and he fished 14 hours a day for 7 days straight.

So sure, let's have the conversation about addition in videogames, and developers exploiting reward loops in human behaviour. But you have to talk about it honestly, and not claim that it was just invented last week with loot drops. If you want to do the accounting I'm really here for you, but I will not entertain strawmen arguments.

It's a simple challenge of intellectual honesty. If you can't take me up on it, you simply aren't thinking clearly and have other motivations regarding your attacks towards me.

I can summarize your point of view in a way that you would agree with. I don't think you could do the same to me.

#Sad

Was my challenge too frightening? Hardly an IQ test.

If being consciously aware that you're being intellectually dishonest is reason enough to flee from a conversation, then I think it's pretty obvious the person has little to offer of value in civil conversation.

I'll leave the invitation open. I could detail Elf's position in a way they would agree with. They couldn't return the favour.

Yeah the problem is these loot boxes are rapidly becoming necessary, not just optional.

What is this nonsense? It's "not optional"? Come on. Give me one example of a full-price ($60 USD) game where you HAVE to spend extra money on convenience shortcuts?

I've spent money on free-to-play games before, where you PRACTICALLY have to spend some money at some point unless you just have infinite free time.

I've spent money on free-to-play mobile games (South Park: Phone Destroyer most recently).

This is totally different from what is essentially an XP boost in a AAA game where you can get all the same abilities/items/weapons by just playing the game. I've NEVER done this, never spent a dime on a game I already bought for $60 for fucking shortcuts. I've never even felt slightly inclined to cheat my way through the normal progression of a game in order to get unlocks faster than other people. And I've played almost every AAA game in the last 20 years.

If you're so impulsive that you HAVE to spend extra money because you HAVE to be first to have all of the things, and you don't want to jus tplay the game normally, then you have bigger issues. And FUCK YES if publishers want to eexploit your obsessive compulsive behaviour in order to give all DLC away to all players for free... then FUCK YESSSSSS keep it coming.

Ok I can't tell if you're serious or not with Step 3. If you are, do you not get how hypocritical you are?

Take me up on my bet Elf, I triple dog dare you.

You obviously haven't read the big news of the day that I submitted to Blue, about how Activision has gotten a patent to purposefully fuck players into wanting to buy shit in-game with real $$$.

If you for a moment think that this immediately indicts the entire gaming industry against any form of monetization, you live in a tinfoil-hat reality distortion field that no one can penetrate.

Again, take me up on my bet. You will lose.

Ech, I was happy this franchise came to PC, I'm still stoked to play through it eventually. The first one was some of the best fun I've had on a console. I just know that it turns into a grind-fest in the late game, and I don't have the time to commit right now. This will be a good game to revisit in early 2018, once it has a few patches.

Grindfest.... said the guy defending Battlefront II and Star Cards.
You're funny.

Exactly Elf, Hippocrates all of them.

How? Explain yourself.

D1 had a grindy ENDGAME.

Seems to be a different topic from "star cards" which is just another term for an old game mechanic.

Unless your severely porous logic would find incongruencies between not currently having time for a grindy end-game right now, and me not really caring if some people want to pay for convenience of getting shit early in a totally different game?

Is it that inconceivable for a human to hold these two thoughts at the same time?

PICK A SIDE MAN! WE'RE AT WAR! lol, give me a break.
