    I have to admit, I am feeling a touch of desire to go back to the original for a bit, even if just to potter about around the solar system for a couple of hours. I've not touched it since TTK, as I got to a point where I needed to group up to get any further.

    It's that need to play with others that just kills the game for me, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I don't have as much free time for games as I used to, and when I do it's never at consistent times - I'll just jump on when I can, so scheduling times to play with others is almost out of the question (you can ask the guys I occasionally play Overwatch with just how often I turn up!).

    Secondly, it makes the game feel more like an obligation than entertainment, for me. I want to be able to play other games without feeling like I might get left behind and thus miss out on all the fun stuff, and, as above, I don't want to have to draw up a schedule to get the most out of it.

    I know people will be reading this and thinking, "Well obviously the game isn't for you, fuckstick!" And I'd agree! Except for the fuckstick part, that was unnecessary. But some of you will know that I'm a frothing-at-the-mouth Halo fanboy, and others will know that I love and play a lot of RPGs. That what is effectively a Halo RPG is not really for me is a bit sad.

    Of course, it doesn't help that none of my 'irl' friends play it. Everyone I know dropped it shortly after the launch of vanilla, and none of them went back. Maybe I'll try and convince them to get stuck into D2...

    Looks like more of the same, which is no bad thing. So long as they've learnt their lessons from the huge improvements made across the DLC releases and tweaks this will be my go to game for a long while.

    Destiny 1 saved me huge amounts of money on other games over the past three years by being just so damn pickup and playable. Here's hoping for more of the same!

    I for one am pretty excited for this as is a good friend of mine. I loved 90% of Destiny and it seems they have addressed a good majority of the problems, for example, I never got to experience all the raids. So I will be there on day one without a doubt with my kickass Warlock!

    Just a question? Which class are you all planning to use?

    I was Hunter on XBO and Warlock on PS4 (after playing Warlock in the Alpha and both betas). Still not sure which I liked better. I really loved the Nightstalker Super, though.

    Man, I really want to play Destiny now :\

    Also, I didn't realise this until last night, but I was actually wearing a Destiny t-shirt while that stream was on D:

    I think I've played so much Destiny 1 that I've developed an allergy to it and possibly the series at large.

    Familiarity breeds contempt abso-fucking-lutely.

    I know! It wasn't even planned, as I didn't watch the stream live. I got in, bunged on a t-shirt, and got started on the dinner. I only realised when I had a shower later.

    To make things worse, it's the Alpha test Moon Wizard tee ;)

    I have switched mains each year:

    Vanilla: Warlock
    TTK: Titan
    ROI: Hunter

    Therefore it should be Warlock again for D2 but I am not sure what to go with.

    Hunter > then toss up between Titan and Warlock. I love the Titan jump but love a good voidwalker build.

    I've just decided to log in to the first game for the first time in about a year and a half and found a LV 9 Warlock on my account. I guess I'd decided to start a new character before I stopped playing it.

    Feels a bit slow after a year and a half of daily Halo 5, but I'm sure I'll adjust quickly.

    @cov well I did stop playing once I had completed all the WoTM challenges on hard so that must be about 6 months since I last played ;)

    I've just watched some more videos, it looks and feels so much like Destiny it resembles a big expansion. I know it's a sequel but they really didn't make an effort to push it forward, if you didn't like it before you probably won't like it now. No proper new enemy, no new element, no new class (a support heavy class would have been nice), no 60fps, no dedicated servers. I'll still get it day one but I will join some others in considering it more like a Destiny 1.5.

    They better carry over clan names.

    I should think so seeing as the clans are on bungie.net itself. In fact I'd more than likely guarantee it.

    Seen pro confirmed at 4k30 whereas no comment on Scorpio. Although I know its a Sony supported event and that may sound dubious, I can't see them splitting a console base so I imagine the same. The xbots will riot, there'll be cheeto dust all over the streets ;)

    Maybe faux 4K on pro and true 4K on Scorpio?

    @ChiefGB was confirmed right after the event, all consoles locked to 30fps regardless of resolution. Unlocked on PC.

    There's an interview on Fireteam Chat where they explain the PS4 Pro isn't powerful enough to run 60fps considering everything that happens on screen. Finger is clearly pointed at the CPU.

    Considering PvP is 4v4 and is practically a different game to PvE anyway they could have done 60fps a la what the Coaliton did with Gears 4.

    I look at what Blizzard manage to do first time of asking on console and it really casts shade on Bungie who used to be the great console space innovators.

    I still can't believe they dialled it right back, they could have expanded on vehicle combat so you can upgrade your sparrow. The reason the vehicle combat didn't resonate in the last game was because there was no carrot.

    It looks like they just abandoned any sort of actual expansion of scope and ideas and just gave everyone a shinier iteration with a few quality of life adjustments.

    Only Bungie could make a big deal over having a map.

    They are a bunch of fucking hacks.

    Usually I would agree but the rest of my 'clan' are of the same opinion so we may actually hold to our word.

    There has been too little said about the end game and Destiny 1s early days are still too fresh in my mind.

    Those 700 hours played don't make me feel any sort of pride, especially as they don't mean anything or won't be carried forward. It just all seems so pointless.

    More pointless than games usually are at least.

    Thank fuck for that. It was any higher than 30fpses LeD would have been livid.
