I enjoyed that Strike mission. But I hope they have more enemy boss varieties. I fought enough Devil Walkers and giant Robot Eyeballs, that I'm looking forward to something new.

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.

It was ridiculous. We were all capped at level 8 but ppl must have farmed the strike for the best level 8 gear there was and it made a huge difference in the iron banner matches.

      Holy cow there seems to be a subscription crate for everything now. AC Filters, Clothes, Bras, Candy, etc. I actually just signed up for Umai Crate. It seems to be the most unique and best value. Its just a box full of different Japanese instant ramens. I'll report if its any better than the cheap shitty ramen you can get at the grocery store. For $25 a month, the box seems to be full of 7-9 bags/boxes/cups of various types. If I'm not impressed with the first box, I'll cancel it and feel like it was worth trying something interesting. I watched a few youtube unboxings and taste tests and it seems to be pretty well received, even in the comments on their facebook posts. I recently had authentic ramen at a local hole in the wall and it was amazing. I always thought ramen was just that shitty Nissin stuff. Some of the videos I watched, its def a little more complex than just pouring hot water into noodles and a tiny spice packet. Some of them have multiple packets to enter in before and after water is added. And apparently there are suggested fresh add ons you can buy separately at the grocery store. Things you obviously can't dehydrate like hard boiled eggs.

      Being in the grocery business for over a decade and a half you see a lot of product flops, successes, bait & switches, and other flat out BS. In one year I watched Kellogg's decrease the size of their cereal box contents by .5oz-3oz multiple times. They kept the box height the same and made them marginally slimmer each time to make it less noticeable. When Eternal water first hit the shelves it was from "Natural Springs in Norway". One day a coworker noticed it tasted different, and then noticed the bottle now said "From a municipal water source in California". I've seen Edy's Ice Cream downsize their containers, and then return them to the old size a year later calling it "Now 20% more!" Nah, you just gave back what you took. The biggest scam of the century is Halo Top ice cream and everyone that's copying it. Halo Top is just jet puffed ice cream. Breyers makes their version, and now Ben & Jerry's is going to make their line of it. You're paying for deceptive portion control. The only reason they are "low calorie" is because there is less ice cream in the cup. Since a pint is by volume and not by actual weight, most people fall for the this trick. You're paying the same, if not more money for the ice cream version of a bag of chips half filled with air. Don't support this crap. Just get regular ice cream and eat less per serving. On a final note, Breyers doesn't even call their product ice cream anymore. Its "Frozen Dairy Dessert". WTF I'm glad I have access to Blue Bell. Its still a half gallon, and its still ice cream. http://www.mouseprint.org/2013/01/21/breyers-converts-ice-creams-to-frozen-dairy-desserts/

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.
