    Ugh, this guy and his rules... :naughty:

    I'm interested in seeing the trailer and if anything looks that "different." I feel like we'll most likely get the same looking game with new planets and weapons...

    What "new" or "different" stuff would you be looking for?

    I'm personally hoping the sweeper bot gets a mop and or vacuum. Poor guy was been using the same broom for ages.

    I mean they ditched PS3/360 which was holding them back big time, so I expect bigger and better things.

    Will remain cautiously optimistic though, considering how hyped I was and ultimately let down from Destiny 1.

    I feel the same.

    I really hope they put in a better effort on story mode this time around. I think it's a really cool world that they just teased us with last time.


    The gun play was pretty fun last time, so I'm intrigued. Will wait and see.

    Will ships do ANYTHING (see: ANYTHING)... will they change the way guns work (instead of a pre-determined gun maybe you can customize pieces to make your own guns)... will there be a story... will they allow you multiple ways to have GOOD loadouts instead of always just one "must have" set of armour/weapons... will they let you achieve this being a solo/non-PvP player... will "raids" become raids where you have like 20 people instead of 6 (Destiny's version of a "raid" is very watered down and it kind of irks me that they use that term)

    Can you imagine trying to coordinate 20 people on console? There's just no way. 8-10, maybe. 20 people would be awful.

    Finally for the ****ing PC! Really wish they did PC for the first game.

    Sadly no gameplay shown in the trailer.



    Early Access Beta with Pre-order:

    Also, as a side note, I really ****ing hope they fixed the ping and tickrate issues of the first game (tickrates were way too ****ing low at 10Hz). Also, I want them to have dedicated servers to run games instead of ****ing peer to peer. Make it dedicated servers with 60Hz tickrates and all will go very well and smooth.

    What a ****** trailer... Tower is kill and the Cabal did it... (although I will give them, it's a good "story" for why we can't carry our weapons and gear forward).

    Them giving you the whole picture? Just look at the first game, no way that ****ing happens :laugh:.

    Also, Bungie, go **** yourself. You make the LE only available at Gamestop while every other version is available elsewhere. **** you *******s.

    They turned "the whole tower got destroyed and everything is lost" into "GARY" and "LOOT" memes. The tone flipping between Zavalla and Cayde was brutal. I like Cayde when you come across him in the game but this gives the game such a dumb goofy feel.

    Trailer had kind of a Borderlands tone to it.

    Cayde is just excited he actually gets to do something.

    I'd assume Activision is the ones to blame for that and not Bungie.

    Anyways, as someone that's still playing Destiny the trailer was fine. It gave me enough information to get my excited but it didn't reveal everything.

    I'm hoping that Bungie learned from their mistakes of the first year and the game is more like The Taken King.

    Even so, who the hell does this? I could MAYBE understand the highest end version being Gamestop only, because of it being even less in supply and demand than the other versions, but this is the middle version.

    The problem is, people are going to jump on the hype train and in the mean time fail to realize that the game is probably going to be more of the same of what made it successful in the first place. I'm sure the story will be improved and the game won't be as much of a grinding mess, but it is still going to be a FPS that requires repetitive things to get what you want. The DLC model also looks to be exactly the same.

    To be honest if you have a sour feeling about Destiny 1, stay the hell away from 2. Please.

    I absolutely loved Destiny's PvP. Might be one of my favorite online experiences of this generation. I never wanted to touch the raids because I didn't have a group of friends playing, not having built in matchmaking was ridiculous and every group of randoms I played with just wanted to beat it quickly some cheesy way. Part of the reason I stopped is it seemed like the game was forcing me into single player and raids just to stay on an even level with other people gear-wise. If everything was unlockable through PvP I would have stayed with it longer.

    If the campaign was less repetitive I would've absolutely loved this game.

    As it is I liked it quite a bit, and the PVP was indeed amazing. Will wait until I read reviews of the campaign being varied before I invest in this one, if I do at all.

    I feel like everyone's issues with the story/dlc shouldn't apply to Destiny 2. Destiny had all those issues because there was a redesign in the 6 or so months leading up to its release. Destiny 2 has been in production for a few years now and there has been no exodus of people, no rumblings of any major shifts.

    But like others said, it will still most likely be based on the things that made it successful. If you hate the way the game is organized right now chances are you won't like Destiny 2.

    Oh, I agree entirely and it's completely backwards but it's par the course for the things in industry. It only seems fitting that a game that blocks content to one of 2 consoles, I'd assume it will soon be 3 with PC coming aboard, has the distributer lock editions at a certain store.

    I could see that being the case but I'm willing to be a bit more optimistic. Bungie has stated that they intent on Destiny 2 having a different feel than Destiny 1 and it's part of the reason why people can't bring certain things forward. That being said I'm not going to automatically assume things will be different and I'll wait until the game play revels happen to make any judgments.

    I think it will still have the same core elements that any FPS RPG game would have but they'll be able to make the game world feel fuller. An article on Kotaku from Jason Schreier outlined some of the changes that they hope to bring to the game. My personal favorite is this:

    To me that sounds somewhat like moving around in WoW. Going from Stormwind to Goldshire and so on in a sort of seemless transitions and more NPCs you can interact with. It may not be to the same scale but that's the sort of thing I'd like to see implemented.

    I think if someone dislikes the core elements of any FPS RPG then they wouldn't like Destiny or a game like Borderlands. They should watch the gameplay reveals and check out some gameplay from the Beta and make the decision for themselves. Even if PVE isn't for the them I still think the PvP in Destiny is the best FPS shooter to come out in a long time. Overall, I do expect Destiny 2 will be an improvement on Destiny 1.

    True, but I expect changes to the old stuff also.

    Things like bigger and more flushed out zones, the ability to Que into things while doing other stuff - not having to go to orbit; breaks immersion for sure, having a lot bigger central hubs that are also more flushed out, having things like factions actually meaning something, etc. The first few were rumoured a few months ago by Shinobi on NeoGAF so I expect the core components to still be there, but the game being evolved on a lot of things; which it needs badly.
