I'm sure there will be, but maybe not in Old Russia. That seems to be Fallen territory even though the Hive are lingering around... The Wizard seems to be the most powerful of the Hive we've seen so far and he only seems to be the equivalent of a Fallen Captain.... We've seen nothing from the Vex, or those that await us on Mars.

 

Because of my shit ass work schedule the only time I've been on at the same time as Strider is when I was downloading the beta. I have yet to play any game with him.... This is exactly why I took a whole week off for launch. I look forward to finally doing strike missions together with all 3 of us.

Yea, you need to fix that damnit. The last time I got to play a game with you was the WaW beta. Gah, damn screwy ass work schedules (I know I hate mine, only gives me 2 hours at most to play with Sledge when I do get on before work).

 

I think the Vex are on Venus so once we're able to start doing storyline missions on Venus we'll get to see them. Same goes for the Cabal, I believe they're on Mars solely so we won't get to see them till we start playing on Mars. I really look forward to release. Even though the beta did get old I still had fun and if that's what we get to look forward to for release this will be an amazing game (hell it's already an amazing game). I'm hoping there's more to Earth then Old Russia because we have a huge planet to play on and if all we get is Russia I'm going to be really pissed.

Maybe its staggered. Old Russia is all we'll have to start with and after you visit other places, you get called back to Earth for another location. 

 

The Wizard is more of an annoyance than the Fallen Captain, so I'm looking forward to seeing what the stronger Hive monsters are like. The Cabal look like a bunch of bad asses. The Fallen take cover, but the Cabal look like more in your face brutes. In the Beta, each enemy type AI had its own behavior... it's going to be interesting to see how these other races act during combat.

The Wizard was nothing compared to those Captains. :nod:

 

Turns out that Moon mission was short, but the explorable area was actually pretty big if you ignored the mission. I didn't get the chance to explore, but you can see some of that area in this video:

This looks like it could be a mission or a new hub of operation later in the game. I'm going towards a Mission.

 

Yeah there are story missions, grinder missions, and strikes... but Bungie said the hardest challange would be the Vault of Glass... and this is called a vault so perhapse there is 1 vault per planet/moon?

Ah now it makes more since why Wizards seemed so weak compared to Captains. I always used Solar damage weapons. If this stays the same I guess I'll set my loadout to always have one of each type of damage.

That was a very informative video. Thanks for posting it. Most of my weapons were solar or void damage. Those fallen captains were a bastard because we had no arc / blue elemental weapons.. This also makes another distinction for the three classes. Titan's super does arc / blue damage, Warlock's super does void / purple damage and Hunter's super does solar / red damage. Now that I know this, when I play as a hunter I'll make sure to have a blue and purple weapon and then save my super for when I see Wizards.

Ok.. so this got me thinking and I checked a video I uploaded from the alpha. I remember 1 hit killing a wizard and now it makes sense. I shot it with a rocket launcher that had a solar / red element. If I pause the video I can see the red element damage number too.

 

Go to 6:39

 

 

The elements make much more sense now.

Walmart and best buy have both started canceling destiny ghost and limited edition pre orders because of over selling. I haven't heard anything from game stop so I'm assuming those orders will be fine.

I wonder how many ebay sellers bought the hell out of them just to resell. It's like they are concert ticket scalpers.

Gamestop should be safe because they sell a very limited quantity to begin with. I'm pretty harsh on them but I think they're pretty well organized when it comes to these types of things. I assume they order a certain amount, and allot them accordingly to each store based on market reserving a large portion for online orders. If you don't claim a copy within the first few days, they run out. As I've said before I missed out on a few special editions waiting too long. I remember picking up the MGS4 limited edition a few years ago only because someone cancelled out on their preorder on launch day. Wal-Mart doesn't surprise me, but Best Buy does... that piss poor managment for a company that has been losing sales against Amazon.... whom I believe also stopped selling them within 24 hours. I believe Gamestop and Amazon are atop the priority chain, and if they start cancelling, I'd have to put the blame on Bungie for either production issues, or a miscalculation in what they promised to retailers. Wal-Mart is definitely at the bottom of that chain... never preorder from Wal-Mart... EVER.

I got screwed by gamestop years ago when I pre-ordered Prince of Persia Warrior Within.. I was suppose to get an artbook with the pre-order. I went there after work, got my game.. which was actually opened.. they put the game back in the case and stickered it closed. wtf. and then they informed me they never received any of the artbooks and that I should have pre-ordered at their other location in the large mall instead because "all the pre-order bonuses are shipped there."

 

That game was for PS2 and it was the last game I bought at any physical gamestop location until I picked up Watch Dogs for PS4 a few months ago. If they screw up my Destiny pre-order, I probably wont buy a game at this store again until the Playstation 6 is released. :P

Yeah that was an actual practice back then that they eventually took a lot of heat for within the gaming media circles. They opened every copy and removed bonuses and what not if you didn't preorder from them. I remember those stickers. XD

I'm pretty sure I still have some games with those stickers. Last time I was there I bought their $15 a year membership for the magazine subscription. If not for the magazine the membership seems rather pointless. Aside from a small discount on used games it offers no significant savings.

Now they have powerup rewards. You get points for trading in and buying. I'm up to 18,779 points. I'm starting to think its a scam however... at least to get the bigger rewards. You can spend 16,000 to get $10 off a game... mind you that it took trading in all my systems, and buying 5 PS4 games, one that was Ghost Edition Destiny to get that far. However, back when I was at 10,000 there was a ClapTrap statue that went for 16,000 I could have sworn. When the clerk at Gamestop notified me that I was at 16,000, I go to log in and the statue is 19,000 -_-;. The ClapTrap is no longer available and now all the cool figurines are 22,000 points now... and there is a 24" Godzilla I want... but I'm sure it will be 26,000 when I get to 22,000. XD

lmao. That is just like the tickets system at the Putt-Putt arcade I always went to as a kid. I could have gotten a Super Star Wars game for SNES in their prize case for 8,000 tickets. It took me almost 2 years to acquire that many.. I played so much skee-ball. lol. One day the game disappeared. I don't think anyone claimed it. The manager probably gave it to his kid. I kept getting more tickets in hope of it returning. Other games popped up in that case over that time and the prices kept going up. By the time I hit 8,000 tickets the only SNES game they had at that point was F-Zero and it was 25,000 tickets. wtf. I stopped my pursuit and traded my tickets in. I got 2 crappy particle wood airplanes that probably cost $0.25 at the dollar store. Both airplanes broke that afternoon.

I enjoyed the multiplayer in the alpha, but I tried a couple Iron Banner matches in the beta and I doubt I'll ever play Iron Banner matches again. The regular crucible matches were somewhat balanced in terms of levels but not weapons.. but the Iron Banner matches were all players and weapons unbalanced with full level advantages. All the people sitting on their sh*t buckets that played 20 hours a day must have enjoyed it because I didn't stand a chance in that, at least in the matches I got into.

Bungie teamed up with Google Maps to make Destiny Planet View and if you view all the cut scenes in it, you can unlock an emblem code for your Destiny account. Or you can skip viewing everything and use the following code to unlock the emblem: 7F9-767-F74
 


 

Visit DestinyPlanetView.com

This is your chance to walk through the Moon, Mars, and Venus of Destiny, using Google’s familiar exploration tools.

Pre-order Destiny and prepare to take back what’s ours on September 9.


 

Upon redeeming this code, I noticed that the 17 trading card codes now show what they unlock.. Grimoire Cards. I'm waiting until the game releases before I click those "Use Now" buttons. If you haven't redeemed those codes yet, click Here for the full list.

      The two best anime this season so far are Goblin Slayer and SSSS.Gridman. Goblin Slayer caused a huge uproar over its first ep.. which honestly is stupid. Plenty of acclaimed anime have had an uncomfortable rape scene. A heavily censored scene that took up all of 10 seconds of the episode. However, whether intended or not, it got everyone talking about it. After that, it resumed as a normal but violent anime. It also wasn't random, it established the goblin's as pure evil. SSSS.Gridman is your standard over the top Trigger mecha anime... but it starts out off the rails. I don't see how they can get much more bat shit crazy. That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, Zombie Land SAGA, and Double Decker: Doug and Kirill have all been fun and quirky though. Overall I'm enjoying this season even if I'm skipping on a few of the shows.

      I got my new fridge hooked up over the weekend. Built in water and ice maker is amazing. I never realized how convenient that really is. Thanks goes out to the inlaws and aunt for the amazing gift.

      This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done.  ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.
