Oooh, okay, I just discovered the "Guided Nightfall" which becomes available when you hot 240 light.

So it's a way to get "guided" by 2 other higher level players through the nightfall. And it costs one "Nightfall ticket" to do.

You can also queue to be the 2 people who guide other noobs through it, which costs no ticket, but you have to be in the same clan.

Ugh, all these arbitrary systems to force me into consuming content the way they want me to. Taking choice from the player is never a good idea. While kinda neat, I'd far prefer to just queue in a public matchmaking to do all this shit. I hate having to jump through all these hoops.

In the beta I had randoms showing up in my game. I didn't even mess with the menu settings.

I guess you have to buy the super mega deluxe edition for $85 to get the complete game.

Yeah, I also had people showing up in my campaign missions in the Beta.

The only way I got it to happen in the retail version was to plead with some randoms to help me with my last few missions before the campaign ended. Was nice to find a couple carebears.

Also, I call it the "anti-social social game" (very edgy I know) because there's no "all" chat ANYWHERE in the game, even in the SOCIAL areas of the game. I literally have to invite randoms to my fireteam just to be able to chat with them, which is a pretty backwards way to go about it.

I also didn't even figure out how to interact with other players until day 3. You have to press G then F1. You know, the old "G+F1 combo that is so familliar to PC players... Rolleyes

You DO NOT WANT all chat. Evidence: the lobby/plane in PUBG.

Then they should give us matchmaking for all game modes, and not hide the MAJORITY of the content of the game behind forcing us to join with a full fireteam. This is a ridiculous trade-off

So far only PvP and basic strikes have matchmaking.

All campaign missions, sidequests, nightfall, and advanced nightfall is all hidden behind this stupid barrier.

So I just got the required 230 light level to do the "Nightfall" weekly hard strike, which I guess is a "heroic" strike. And guess what? there's no public player queue, you HAVE to join it with a full fireteam to have any hope of beating it. It's super hard, AND timed at 20 minutes. Fuuuuuuck.

I've been joining "normal" strikes for the last hour trying to find people who wanna do the nightfall with me, and so far I have zero people who've even chatted back in team chat. Jesus Christ.

I did figure out how to change the blocking global whispers to "open" from "closed". Not that it's made a difference, still no contact from anyone I haven't initiated.

And I totally agree that it's entirely to get rid of toxicity, which I'll begrudgingly admit is working.

If they only made it so there was a setting to let me queue up for main campaign missions with other players, then it would be good enough for me. It works for strikes...

And the "heroic" strikes do exist, I'm not sure if they're called "heroic" but you have to be light level 230 just to have the playlist even unlocked.

And I also agree that the game up to this point feels way too easy. I feel like it didn't get any harder when there were 3 people in a fireteam doing a campaign mission, I figured they'd add more monsters to spawn, or at least spawn high level baddies. The only benefit seems to just be making it easier to blast through, which doesn't help the feeling of perma-grind for me. They just felt like a downhill skiing race where my co-op "friends" just barreled through the mission as fast as possible, rarely waiting for anyone who fell behind.

8. Re: in other news.. people giving away their money. Oct 30, 2017, 21:27 Slick
 
All that being said, if anyone wants to add me to do stuff, I'm Slick#1980

I like the casual PvP (on like a 12 game winning streak at the moment), and the strikes are fun. Wanting to raise my level enough just to do the advanced strikes for now (light 240 recommended), not really considering going all the way for a max level for raids, at least not right now.

From what I remember, in D1, one of the DLC expansions came with a mode that made it a lot easier to grind for top level loot, ionno if I'll get that, depends if this game still holds my interest when that comes around.

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.

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. What’s 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 doesn’t mean jack if your words are considered garbage. As a 3rd party reading this discussion I’m automatically on the other side just so that I’m 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
