Hmmm, still not overly interested since the only way we'll even be able to fight Oryx is going to be in the raid. However, that Arc Lightning attack for Warlocks is freaking amazing and almost makes me want to purchase it just for that.

Looks like there will be a new campaign.. which if its like the original campaign, it'll take a couple afternoons.

That collectors set looks as elaborate as the set I bought for the base game. I'm still going to have to pass on it all tho. Too many other games are coming out this year that will leave me broke as it is. Still no mention of match making raids.. once september comes around, I'm sure the weekly nightfall and heroic will have their base lowest level raised which means I'll pretty much be done with the game once the new expansion hits. -_-

After playing the raids, matchmaking would be a waste of your time tbh. With a bunch of randoms not using a mic, the raid would never succeed if they make it like VoG where it's impossible to beat it as a last man standing. In game LFG would be a lot better so you could sort out your team before going in.

If they bring in an in-game LFG I'd consider buying this because matchmaking, as DX pointed out, would be rather difficult since communication is key to doing a raid successfully (yes even Crota requires communication even if it is easier then VoG).

 

Even a new campaign isn't worth going back for since you could honestly beat the original campaign in a couple of hours if you set the time aside to do so (I think in total you could do the entirety of Destiny Vanilla in about 3 hours, 4 if you actually took your time). Plus the trailer, with what little story it gave away, didn't look all that impressive (outside of the new subclasses) and they really need to do an expansion dedicated to the Cabal because I'm sick of Vex, Hive, and Fallen. I really want to know more about the Cabal since they're the odd man out (you only get one planet you deal with them on where as you get 2 for every other race (3 for Fallen)).

I saw this the other day. It does seem a bit ridiculous to buy the entire core game and previous expansions again just to unlock some emotes. Pretty ballsy of the of the bungie employee to assume everyone will pay that much just for a couple emotes. If they threw gjallahorn and hawkmoon into that package they'd have probably gotten some larger sales.

Iron Banner starts tomorrow. Ever since I made it to the lighthouse I've been like Meh on this game. I probably won't spend anymore time on it and I def wont spend any more money on it. I will buy Destiny 2. I can see what bungie tried to do. Last gen just crippled this game so bad. Hopefully the next game will be what this game was suppose to be and they can actually wait 2+ years to release a $40+ expansion. The next installment is probably going to be vastly different, and lack a god like weapon like Gjallahorn... of course they will sell a DLC with Gally in it, but it will never be as game breaking as it has been in this game. I tried to explain that to a co-worker and he just couldn't grasp it. In this game there is Fatebringer, Blackhammer, Gally > everything else in primary, special, heavy for PVE. PVP there is The Messenger/Thorn/Red Death , Pre-HoW Fellwinters, Truth > everything else.  Bungie hired one of Guild Wars' lead designers this past year... HoW was a clear sign that he was on board. I expect the sequel to have way more balance and a lot better endgame content... along with an in game LFG.

Heh, I got on the other day long enough to buy Red Death just so I could have it otherwise I haven't picked up the game since the last time we did PoE. I might get Destiny 2 if it's drastically different from Destiny because honestly Bungie is just recycling the formula they made with Vanilla and just, badly, trying to up the difficulty just to keep people interested. They need to learn that upping level through gear is artificial and limits the bounds of what you can do in the game (which most MMO's learn which is why quite a few are on a yearly or 2 year Expansion plan that increases level caps and changes things up (yes it does get stale, look at WoW, but at least it adds variety)). Honestly I don't think Destiny 2 will be any different from what we already have but if Bungie can figure out a way to present the same old thing as new and fresh just maybe 2 will be worth the money (even if we've technically bought two Destiny games already between the 2 old DLC's and the Vanilla copy of the game).

Destiny 2 should time skip 100+ years into the future so they can make a brand new campaign from scratch with only brief references to the original horrible campaign.

Did you see the dlc pre orders we can buy separately? Only $20 for some emotes.

It won't be long until gally and the other god weapons are left in the dust and are outdated by "year 1" limitations. With more dlc and a never ending level cap increase, unless they let ppl upgrade everything to "year 2" gally will be crapped on I bet.

      Anthem isn't perfect. It probably should have been delayed another 6-8 months, but its a hell of a lot of fun. I just find it funny how Destiny can rack up big review scores with the similar issues and significantly less content. The popular thing to do right now is crap on EA, and its justified... but it'll be a shame if this game gets the plugged pulled on it early. There is a lot of potential here to fill the gap until the next gen consoles come. Arekkz has the most realistic take on the game, the rest of the YT community is just spitting out talking points which is kinda sad too see since they're suppose to be the alternate to big game sites.

      Last Spring was an anime season of epicness. This season is of charm and adorableness. Meiji Tokyo Renka, My Roommate is a Cat, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and ENDRO have all captured my heart and they're not even my favorites this season. I'll def have my work cut out for me doing a full review at the end.

      I've been sick as hell for the last 5 days now. Damn sinus infection has wrecked me. At least I got some time in on God of War. Damn that game is amazing.

      I finally passed the anime in the AoT manga. This next half of season 3 is probably going to end before they explain everything, where the titans came from, the world outside the walls, and how everything happened. It's interesting, but I feel like it makes the series lose a major component which was the mystery of why anything was happening. The anime is about to get as intense as season 1 was, but after that I can see people getting bored with the next season unless the really fly through this section of explanations. I don't think they will though because the anime has been the manga verbatim.

      Totally hyped for the new expansion for FFXIV, Shadowbringers, after this mornings announcements at the Fan Fest in Paris. We're getting a 24-man raid devoted to Nier called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and Yoko Taro is overseeing its creation, fucking sweet. It's supposed to further the Nier story as well (and if the concept art is to be believed it's sometime after the Automata storyline).
      Say what you will about FFXIV but god damn do we get some awesome shit due to Square-Enix properties and their connections. I just fucking hope I can finally get my 2B glamour I've been wanting for my character. This just mean I need to quit being lazy and beat Automata before October (when this should probably launch since the expansion comes out in July).
