Reading this I'm glad I didn't dive into Destiny 2 (having spent 100+ hours in Destiny). It sounds like the game has become even more repetitive and exploitative.

@FASELI Yup, that's the same experience we've had over the course of 500+ games.

It's hugely irritating.

Fatigue can affect the game. That makes sense and I can deal with that. What doesn't make sense is when the game feels rotten from the first whistle.

Often online (I play exclusively seasons coop) you'll find a game isn't going to go your way from the first kick. Your players feel dumbed down and the AI is all over the shop. This will be despite using the same team in the same formation for the last 15 games.

If we lose to better players so be it, that's not a problem. But when you're fighting you're own team AND the opponents then it's a nightmare.

We've been sitting in div 2 for a fortnight now. Previous to that we had been here and then dropped like a stone to division 4. Almost all the way back to 5. It didn't seem to matter what we did or what level of opponent we came up against. When that happens FIFA smells very fishy.

Not only that but it makes you question the times you win. Was it skill or was the opponent having the same issues we had experienced.

Despite all this we are 550 games deep and still come back for more. We are our own worst enemies.

@tehgamer2014 Because it's only 5 more on Live than it is in store, and saves you swapping discs whenever you fancy dipping into tens of hours of content?

I'm actually starting to think this was more about trying to preserve the marketing launch date. The MP portion wasn't quite ready and needed a few more weeks polish so they shipped without it on the disc.

Tonight's Strategy:

1) Wait for wifey to allow me access to the TV in order to play video games.

2) Fall asleep due to being up too late yesterday evening.

3) Spend all Wednesday F5ing EG reading other people's experiences of Destiny.

Downloading and playing Destiny until 1.30am and then having to tend to my 4 year old with leg ache at 3am = tired me.

Curse you, Bungie.

Very easy to judge the big bad company, but there's got to be more to this than meets the eye. Someone as talented as Marty wouldn't just be let go, surely?

Why online shooting peaked with Bungie's decade-old Halo 2

binky

4 years ago

Yeah - I think I spent more time with H1 and H3 than H2. As good as it was, Halo 3 was a much better package overall. Halo 4 didn't keep me interested though - I disliked that it had been tainted by other shooters.

I like CoD et al, but if I want to play them, I'll play them. Keep Halo, Halo.

Microsoft and publishers talking Kinect-less Xbox One performance boost

binky

4 years ago

If the option was, say, for certain games that required the extra oomff to have a disclaimer that says "Snap TV not available" I'd be alright with that. If it means we then can't snap party/friends then it becomes a little silly.

If the only difference is a few pixels here and there then it's not worth it for my money/eyes. It gets more important when we're talking frame rate though, I agree.
