Destiny 2

Recommended Posts

So I've been busy doing my summer stuff, reading the Dark Tower series (down to the last one!), And finally getting into an active Destiny clan.

In the mean time IGN has been so kind to drip feed information most days about Destiny 2.

I love the look of the game play, and I'm going full time Sentinel Titan when it comes out!  Beta is coming!

I meant to do this yesterday, but we go a new dog, which has occupied my mind more so than Destiny Beta.

Happy console beta week! Looks like there is some cool stuff to explore even in the limited missions.  And PVP seems really fun.

See y'all on Xbox at 1!

I've tried to play a couple of times.  Keep getting an error message.  "destiny servers are down"

I was able to play for a bit last night.  I got in the Story mission and Strike.  I picked the Titan as it was my main in D1.  I love the changes to the striker subclass.  As for the Sentinel class idk.  I must have missed something because I couldn't see how to use the new shield.  I could only put up the ward (bubble).  Also, excited to get into some PVP.

So here's what I learned with the sentinel.

Hold LB and RB to get the word of dawn.

Tap LB and RB to get sentinel shield.

LB throw a shield like Captain America!

RB/RT dash melee attack.

Hold LT portable shield.  You can rez someone under the shield.  Super great during strike!

I played a game of control,  I got my super, saw a couple of folks, spurred, and missed evrleryone!!!  Was hilarious...

So after playing some iron banner, I can't wait for D2 PVP.  I really enjoyed the longer TTK, and how the guns felt.  I can also appreciate the super delay.

Last night, I went against a group of four with my randos.  We got smoked 20k-10k because they were able to chain their supers like a boss.  While I'd like better timing on Supers in D2, hopefully they are able to balance the number if supers that get run in you.  Getting supered 4x in a row from the other guys isn't fun.

I can't wait to get my hands on D2.  I'm really looking forward to how public events are getting upgraded.  Heroic events are going to be amazing! And I can't wait to explore the new world's.

And of course, actually play PVP from day 1 instead of waiting until year 3....

So today at Gamescom, a POO TON of stuff has been released about the European Dead Zone!

There's a basic trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqCJ9V7eVM4&t=3s

So that looks pretty cool!  There are also numerous gaming outlets (like IGN) who are releasing their game footage as well.

So my hope needle is over max right now.  My thoughts for the three people who follow this thread (I love you!):

-EDZ is HUGE.  Not only that, there are a lot of places to explore in the adventures and the lost sectors.  Then there is a TON of variety in the kinds of locations.

-Some of the bounties and public events are samey feelings.  No matter what it seems that standing in one place on a timer, collecting items off dudes you kill, and killing specific dudes will continue to be major points of interaction.

-The fact that you can do heroic modes of public events is GREAT!  More loot!  

-There is a LOT of loot, including what seems to be a fair number of returning by changed exotics.  I saw Hardlight in a video with void damage and more ammo.  

-Looks like shaders will be placed on individual pieces of gear.

-Humans look to be animated by Bethesda...

-The Human NPC, Devran Kay seems well voiced.  You will be able to exchange tokens with NPCs to get ranks in factions to get more loot.

There's more, but I HAVE to get back to work.  So I'm really amped up, ready to play!  While I get some people wanted a new game, I really enjoyed D1 so an evolution of D1 instead of a complete reinvention of the wheel is fine with me.  So long as I have reasons to play with my friends, color me happy!

Now they are releasing footage of the EDZ, European Dead Zone.  Looks amazing!  Super dense, multi layered, and TONS of places to explore.  I love the public events they have shown.  Adding a heroic modifier was a great move.  Sure, it's still the same public event kind of things, but the new wrinkles in mobs, in some mechanical changes, and new rewards make me really looking forward to jumping in with some guildmates and friends to go and kill dudes!

Oh mudda ov gawd!

So yeah, I've watched this a bunch!  For the Puppies!!!

So great!  With all of the action in the "ruins" of the City.  Maybe there are some missions there in the game?  That would be super dope =)

I'm going to pick mine up Wednesday after work.  By the 9pm release from GameStop (got the limited edition with goodies), I will hopefully be sleeping! (or trying really hard to sleep!)

After seeing the EDZ footage, I've tried hard to avoid the rest of the spoilers.  Apparently, someone posted everything from a game guide on reddit.  I only saw one thing, and that was enough for me to close it out!

Oh and from the TWAB:  Raid is a week out, Trials of the Nine is NINE days out....no that's not significant either!

Almost posted this in the new "Nerdvava" forum.  Should we start a new thread there or can we have this on moved?
