Destiny 2 director defends its shaders as one-time use items

@davetobin So I too am a Destiny player, and when reading about all this microtransaction crap I instantly got a refund on my digital copy.

From your 26 hours experience, how in your face are the MS? Are the loot box engrams dropping regularly? Are they dropping decent things?

I really want to play, but I don't want Microtransactions shoved down my throat. I've never brought one, I will never buy them, yet I'm getting content held back through a bias RNG system that is fuelled by greed.

That's cool. I know it sounds weird, but this seems like the "next-gen" of achievements. Just seems very new and polished, unlike the standard "bleep bloop".

As I said, sounds weird...

It's such a shame Lionhead is gone. I was fortunate enough to do work experience on Fable 2 and meet some incredible and inspiring people there. Definitely a big impact on the way I view the Xbox brand, Fable and Halo were the two reasons I got into the brand. They definitely inspired a then 17 year old me to aim high with the dream of being in the creative tech industry. Thanks to the guys at Lionhead, you lot were the best!

Shameless Promotion incoming!
If anyone is interested, I've created a Fable t-shirt on Qwertee. If anyone is a fan of the series (and art) please give it a vote! Would love to see fellow 'Chicken Chasers' wearing it out in the wild!

Fable Legends bids farewell

VivaLaJam26

2 years ago

This is such a sad thing. I bought into the Xbox brand for two reasons; Halo & Fable. Now Halo is very competitive focused (being a filthy casual I have no time for this now) and the story being awful, Fable was the only exclusive for me until today. Sure I can replay the originals (come on MS, bring Anniversary to BC) or Microsoft will reboot the series, but you know it will be nothing compared to the unique British feeling the original 3 had, hell I'm half expecting a reboot sent in a middle age-esque area full of american voice actors (nothing against them, but Fable was a very british game which somehow appealed to the international market)

Such a shame to see such a unique company get dropped like this. Microsoft really fucked up with this series, instead of giving the game people wanted, one full of choice, consequence and kicking chickens, we got a kinect game (which had the perfect art style for Fable) and Legends.

I hope the guys from Lionhead move onto better and brighter things, and if any of them are thinking of, I don't know, creating an RPG with a moral system that changes your characters appearance as well as effecting the world around them, let me know ;)

Fly now, be free!!!!

Bungie president out less than a week after Destiny 2's reported delay

VivaLaJam26

2 years ago

@Supersonicboom Hope not. I really enjoy Destiny, and it has SO much potential. The lore and universe Bungie has created is that of Star Wars, it's really in depth and full of cool things.

The only problem is that Bungie isn't topping it up, or keeping the community informed. EA did a great run down of what the year is looking like for Battlefront, Destiny needs that.

Also, as much as I hate it, Destiny could really benefit from merchandising; Books, encyclopaedias, real world items would be a great addition to help it.

@DX12 The ten year deal they signed with Actvision means they are under the thumb of the very definition of corporate control. I don't think a Bungie employee can wipe their own arse without having to ask a committee of higher-ups if it's okay to.

At the end of all these I think Bungie might be absorbed into the Activision hive mind, a real shame as the company, was at least, filled with great characters and influential members of the team.

Someone made Princess Peach's Castle in Halo 5

VivaLaJam26

2 years ago

I love the gameplay of Halo 5, probably the best it's ever been since Halo 2.

Aside from the shocking campaign, I'm a tad disappointed in the way assets are textured in forge, man made assets don't seem to just be solid colour, or very bland.

Just the req system absolutely killed any sense of reward or progression, but that's a rant for another day. All in all the arena mode is great.

Probably the best Zelda game. I'm not saying it's my favourite, but it's the best one that immersed the player into the world of Hyrule and made it feel like a living breathing universe.

Great game, and I've enjoyed playing it. But the moment Destiny and Halo MCC come out, then Titanfall will take a back seat. I've always been more of a Halo player than COD/BF/Titanfall, so the fact I can play all the multiplayer means I may never need another game again.

It's stuff like leaving little things out and features being patched in later that make me not want to go next gen.

Surely the One should have EVERYTHING the current 360 has and more? Not a half arsed attempt at trying to do it.
