Bungie talks Destiny: Rise of Iron's future events, wolves and raid

Stomp224

Check out all the friendless losers demanding matchmaking for raids. If you had played one of Destiny's raids, you would know that randoms would kill the raids, and Bungie would have to dumb them down into oblivion in order for them to be completeable.

Id rather the loners were left to whine than have Destiny's best feature ruined.

Destiny will soon get microtransactions

Stomp224

3 years ago

@simpleexplodingmaybe Does it suck? Bearing in mind development on Destiny (and most games now) is ongoing, and didnt stop once the retail disc was produced. People are basically paying for the game to have continued support. Dedicated players of Destiny may have shelled out a hell of a lot so far, but Im willing to bet a lot of them felt like they got their pounds-for-hours worth of play.

And these are optional, no one is forcing anyone to buy a twerk emote.

"According to Kotaku, Bungie will release free story content and missions every few months until the release of Destiny 2 in autumn 2016 instead."

Optional cosmetic items.

Im missing the rage-incuding point here, do people believe the game will become stuffed with game-breaking microtransactions like call of duty?

Oh, wait, those were cosmetic too

Finally, the true legacy of Demon's Souls is being revealed. What made those games great wasn't the difficulty, it was the discovery. The discoveries you would made would in turn make the game easier, and make you feel more powerful. I really hope we will see more games take this route, as this sounds great!

@Malek86 have you played the raid? Seriously, matchmaking would not be conducive to a good time. Nightfall maybe, but theres too much co-ordination involved to play with people not communicating.

Dark Souls 3 is familiar, and that's fine

Stomp224

3 years ago

@chischis I think there is a spectrum of Souls fans - at either end you have your solo players and lore buffs, and then on the other end of the scale you have PvP players.

DS2 made a lot of changes to core systems based off PvP, which is why i think those of us playing solo as an adventure game didnt like it as much. Where you fall on that scale seems to determine how good you felt DS2 was.

EDIT: Dumbass wording

Dark Souls 3 isn't the last in the series - but it is a turning point

Stomp224

@kinolurtz Maybe im not far enough in yet (7-8 bosses in so far), but ive not found much lore. Interesting item drops are fewer (mostly seem to pick up consumables), and the game is much tougher on mistakes in a way that completely turns me off - IE grinding health vials after a couple of failed boss attempts.

Im enjoying it, just not on the level of Demon's or Dark 1

Eh. I loved Demon's Souls - its one of my all time favourite games, and I loved Dark Souls 1 even more, its just a masterpiece. However, for me DS2 and Bloodborne havent hit the high notes of those first two games, and TBH I think the formula is wearing thin.

I'll still get excited by it when we hear more info, but the charm is definitely starting to wear thin for me. :(
