News Comments > Destiny 2 Free Trial Released

I posted this in the yesterdays thread this morning about my gripes but they're quality of life problems and not actual gameplay mechanics.

Missed one of:
-Clans limited to 100 players.

Games really fun.. gameplay you'll have a blast playing as the mechanics are well done.

That being said, I understand the gripes about it being big steps back..

There's very basic things that for whatever reason they didn't do properly. Quality of Life problems pretty much.

Examples:
-Lack of in game chat channels, they've said this is because they want to avoid trolling but that's some bullshit.
-This stupid +5 mod on weapons.. if you have a gun that's 290 power level and add a +5 legendary mod it will boost it to 295. Then when you get a gun drop thats say 294, you can infuse it into that gun thats 295 even though it says it is lower, but it's not because of the mod.. it's a stupid system and it should be obvious that you can infuse the gun with a lower power because of the mod.
-Challenges/Tasks are only viewable in the mission area.. Example is IRON BANNER challenges can only be viewed in an iron banner match.
-Challenges can only be viewed if you did not pick up anything.. second you pick up something it goes hidden for 20 seconds then it'll finally appear.. it's horribly done.
-Joining/leaving Fireteams are kind of a pain, especially if your fireteam member is in a tower and the instance is full. It shouldn't be this hard.
-Try disbanding a clan.. LOL!!!! What a nightmare it was for us to merge clans
-No ingame LFG.. This is 2017 people.. WoW did this back in 2007.
-LFG and other bullshit like easy transfer of weapons require their fucking mobile App to be streamlined.. They have an LFG in their mobile app but jesus fuck what the fuck.. PUT IT IN THE GAME DILDOS.
-The first missions kind of explain the mechanics of Region Loot Chest, how to find Lost Sectors, How to do public events but overall it doesn't actually spell it out. "LOOK AT THIS PICTURE ON THE WALL" doesn't actually translate to "These are the lost sector challenge locations" very well. I think it could have been done better on the challenge screen
-Inventory system is still as horrible as destiny 1.. Try sorting your bank.. OH WAIT THEY DON'T HAVE ONE.


That's the jist of it.. As you can see it's quality of life bullshit but it's like the game was released 6 months early.. we're in public beta release again.

Never played the other stalker games.. Only finished the first. I remember the ending being ridiculously hard with those Gauss rifle maniacs and a helicopter. Pretty fun times back in 2007 with it.

That XP thing is so scummy, I wouldn't pick up this game if it was 5 bucks.

My new 1070ti apparently doesn't come with Destiny 2, where pretty much all other Geforces did, so I'm being spared even the free version.

The XP thing is kind of scummy but it is for Shaders basically.. I didn't even care as I'm not playing Fashion Destiny 2...

I love steam.. Never had a single issue with it and it has greatly benefited my life.

Glad to see it's still counting upwards.

The biggest beef people have with it is always "I want to be able to sell the games I bought without DRM blah blah blah". Personally, I don't give a shit to sell my used titles.. so it's a win for me and a loss for plebs.

"That tow truck driver is in trouble" is a "fake" video.

They have a flat bed in the background ready to pick up the car right away.

Unfortunately, I clicked the click bait title.

That flat earther article first line is "1,800 feet high"

uhm.. that's barely off the ground... planes fly at 30,000 feet.. Even 1800 meters is paltry amount. 18,000 feet isn't high.. So what is the typo? is this for real that he expects 1,800 feet to be a good thing?

This Ajit Pai is completely fucking crazy.. the only logical explanation for his Wack job ideas is that he's getting huge sums of money and compensation for reversing these decisions and also net neutrality bullshit.

Darwin aoproves of the flat earthers rocket launch.

I seriously hope the guy doesn't die and he says "the earth is actually round" because if he dies, someone will say NASA blew him up to cover it up.

Part of me hope he dies, because fuck flat earth retards.

Macros and bots have been around for a long time but that analog bot for console makes me laugh. 280 Credits because you max out the matches..

I hate seeing these types of things in multiplayer versus games but all the power to him for arcading it and exploiting it up.

I don't have any issue with pay-for-progression. If I can't play a game for 300 hours to unlock all the weapons (re:Battlefield-type games) then I should be able to do that. Not Day 1, or, even Day 90, but at some point I should be able to. (caveat - I do enjoy playing a game for 300 hours to unlock everything, if the game is fantastic...like Bad Co 2.)

It is the randomness that is underhanded. Buying the boxes for the chance at the weapon or upgrade is unseemly and borderline illegal based on these stories.

The argument for this is that it shouldn't take 300 hours to do that.. They purposely make the grind so huge to make you WANT to pay for it. That's why this is getting press and exactly the reason it needs to be criticized.

Game is apparently like 6-8 hours long but a crazy visual and good story.

I'll end up playing it shortly here.

I mean, name me something else that you get 100+ hours of enjoyment out of that's 60$.

I can pick up a lot of books for $60 at a second hand bookstore that will provide me with 100+ hours of enjoyment easily.

$60 is the introductory price for most games. The books youíre talking about sell for $15 or more brand new. Letís not compare used, older titles to brand new.

Now you're moving the goal posts. You said "...name me something else that you get 100+ hours of enjoyment out of that's 60$". So I did.

Moreover, I can pick up several used console titles (but not from Gamestop) for that $60 that will deliver more hours than most new single titles will.

I don't read for enjoyment/fun anymore so I'll give you that answer as true... I read all day at work, 400 page engineering documents, 100 page measurement manuals, 100's of emails.. I don't want to read books when I go home.

Also, I don't remember the last time a book made my heart pound or my hair stand on end...

But it's still a valid response.. I prefer audio/visual to just plain visual.
