Destiny 2 Beta Observation: We’re Weak!

I played the Destiny 2 Beta a bit more last night and my observation is that we Guardians are weaker than we were in Destiny. Our guns are weaker, our abilities are less powerful, and our grenades are downright paltry.

I created a Hunter last night and played with both the Arcstrider and Gunslinger abilities. . . . → Read More: Destiny 2 Beta Observation: We’re Weak!

Destiny 2 Beta guns and abilities – different, but good

Having only played the Destiny 2 beta for a couple of hours last night, I found that I like the changes that I saw to guns and abilities, and for the few that I didn’t like, I can live with them.

Guns

There are still 3 gun slots, and 3 ammo types, just as before. . . . → Read More: Destiny 2 Beta guns and abilities – different, but good

The Destiny 2 Beta is good, but shows an annoying mechanic

The Destiny 2 Beta performed very well for me last night, with none of the problems I saw on Reddit or Twitter while I was at work impatiently waiting to get home to play. I didn’t get disconnected once, and all the activities provided worked just fine. Since I’m on PS4 and preordered, the beta . . . → Read More: The Destiny 2 Beta is good, but shows an annoying mechanic

Lack of gear diversity in Destiny makes it a chore to play

How can I possibly say there is lack of gear diversity on Destiny, when there are hundreds of items in each category, more than anyone can possibly know, and all of our vaults and gear slots are completely full? Well, I think the current light level scheme and rewards mechanism are forcing us into using . . . → Read More: Lack of gear diversity in Destiny makes it a chore to play

Done with Destiny, Back to LOTRO and STO

Between griefers and trouble finishing a Heroic Strike while wearing a Speaker mask, I’m just done with the frustration of Destiny and the Festival of the Lost. I’m tired of doing pointless quests for a random chance at crap. So I’m taking a vacation from Destiny (in fact, I nearly deleted it out of frustration, . . . → Read More: Done with Destiny, Back to LOTRO and STO

Finished Witcher 3 DLC, back to Dragon Age Inquisition

My poor non-multitasking brain can’t handle playing too many games at once, mostly because I get the controls mixed up, so I tend to try to finish a game, then move on (MMOs excepted). So I just finished the excellent Witcher 3 Blood and Wine DLC, and had to decide on a new game. Finishing . . . → Read More: Finished Witcher 3 DLC, back to Dragon Age Inquisition

My luckiest Destiny Crucible match ever

After I got all my Guardians to Iron Banner rank 5, I continued playing so I could keep getting that phat lewt Destiny was handing out (sometimes). Since I was just messing around, I didn’t have the pressure to win, which may have helped with my luckiest match. I was stealing kills (not on purpose) . . . → Read More: My luckiest Destiny Crucible match ever

Unsure about buying The Division after playing the beta

I played the beta of Tom Clancy’s The Division on PS4 over the weekend (not sure why they need to keep flogging poor old deceased Tom Clancy to promote the game, but I understand Red Storm Entertainment was involved). I liked it quite a bit. It was atmospheric and tense, and I felt like I . . . → Read More: Unsure about buying The Division after playing the beta

Enjoying the Heck out of Fallout 4

Since I last wrote, I played a lot of Destiny. I would even say too much Destiny, with the terrific Sparrow Racing League (getting all 3 characters a Class S license, but never getting any 320 gear), followed by Iron Banner where I got all 3 characters to rank 5. And that’s pretty much the . . . → Read More: Enjoying the Heck out of Fallout 4

Started the Destiny King’s Fall Raid on Hard Mode

Last night, thanks to a great bunch of Guardians, I managed to take my roughly 300 light level Titan in the hard mode raid in Destiny. While I was clearly the weakest player, we managed to do quite well up to the Deathsinger sisters. So this is not an article about the raid per se, . . . → Read More: Started the Destiny King’s Fall Raid on Hard Mode
