If they would only announce the  release date of DLC 2 , I still play everyday , I did find something interesting to talk about  , I'm going to start a new thread about !!!! 

 

 

Watch the first couple minutes of this.  Unconfirmed but DLC drop believed to be May 8th.

 


Now I'm hearing May 8th will be the update, DLC drops May 15th with the trailer release the Monday before.

 

Again. ALL UNCONFIRMED...

Considering Curse of Osiris was revealed six weeks before release, I would expect to see an official reveal for this some time this week or the next. Who knows? Maybe they'll say something about it in the Bungie Bounty livestream.

I think we'll hear something in tonight's TWAB.  As Kingdomville stated, they usually let us know with enough time to get hyped.  Plus we have to give time to those trollers who hate the game, but are the first to tweet "dead game".  Why do you pay any attention to it if it is dead.

 

Anyway...

 

I'm still loving Destiny 2 .  It has some issues (Golden Gun) But I still enjoy it.

Called it! They spoke a little bit about Expansion 2 in the livestream, and it seems like we should be getting some more straightforward information soon. Interesting to note that Deej said they don't want to 'name it' just yet. Not sure what that means, but I'm still excited.

Michael, the reason "trolls" like me pay attention to the "dead game" is that we want it to be great and are on the outside waiting for it to be game changing like it should have been from release.  I haven't poured salt on the forum for a while because I made my thoughts clear where the game needed to go before I would jump back in. 

 

The sad thing is the "dead game" is not a inaccurate statement by any stretch.  I haven't seen anyone in my clan play this game in weeks.  Our Discord is being blown up by other games (The Division, ES, Fortnight, Basically anything other than D2).  Now I know there are trolls who have no intention of providing positive feedback or playing the game but on the flip side there are also trolls who have general interest in the game returning to the glory of D1. 

 

So in other words, lumping all "trolls" into one big troll bag is unfair.  Kinda like saying everyone still playing D2 are fanboy's who give Bungie a pass and are going to drink the kool-aid of all things Bungie spits out.  I'm not saying everyone is like that just using the analogy.

 

That is why I have been waiting on the sidelines for the game to be something that interests me.  It unfortunately is not close to being there and I'm hoping that by the year 5 mark they will start to turn it around. 

 

On a side note, I've been playing games that I haven't played in years.  Picked up MLB The Show 18 and it is phenomenal.  Far Cry looks good but waiting for more feedback before I sink money into it.

sgtcoy!!!!!  I was just thinking that I haven't heard from you and wondered how you were doing...  

 

I don't lump you into the "troll" category.  You comment and back up your comments with valid points.  My "troll" comment was meant for those Twitter fools who literally, the second a tweet about Destiny hits, they're first to comment "dead game" and then you don't hear from them.  No back up, no nothing.  That's trolling.  The destructive comments, not a constructive comment.  Even a negative comment with back up can be constructive. 

 

I don't think Destiny is a dead game.  But it's on life support and I do believe they'll fix it.  I'm still enjoying playing. But again, I'm an enigma.

Still being a creeper and following the forum daily.  Waiting for you to provide gamechanging details on how D2 has transformed unto the game of the decade.  I figured you wasn't talking about me directly but I have, maybe once or twice, trolled the forum spewing hate and discontent.  But overall, I know that that clan of trolls are out there running their troll mouths saying nothing positive and just being ugly.  I honestly don't follow any youtube updates or watch any Bungie videos as my cluelessness on here shows. 

 

I hope they do fix it and I'm glad there are people enjoying the heck out of the game.  I wish I was (secretly).  Keep us informed because my source of knowledge and information is coming from you guys!!

Have you played and enjoyed the previous Far Cry games? If so, I'd say 100% buy it. Playing it right now and I'm ~25% through the campaign over the last 2 weeks since release, and I'm loving it. It's more of the same Far Cry formula with direct (imo) steps forward in the franchise. The multiplayer (Far Cry Arcade) aspect has really surprised me. It seems to have endless possibilities, whether you want traditional multiplayer, co op, or off the wall community built maps. I'm not what you would even call a huge mp fan, but even I found myself getting lost and losing track of time in the arcade a few times. Great fun, and it appears you can squad up with up to 5 of your friends to jump into the more traditional multiplayer modes. I've heard some neutral to negative feedback about the storyline, but for me personally it's been fine thus far. But imo the stories of the Far Cry series generally take a back seat to gameplay and fun factor. The endless sandbox is where it has always excelled for me.

I haven't played FC5.  I have clan members who are. They're actually spending more time in the map editor making their own maps than playing the game. But they tell me it's a good game.

That is probably my favorite Halo game of the series.
I started up a campaign run yesterday. It was a lot of fun.

Had a few controller mishaps. Might have to repath a few buttons on my controller to keep that from happening next time I play.

@sgtcoy

 

Have you read this weeks TWAB?

 

https://www.bungie.n...s/Article/46754

 

Some good things coming down the pike.  The return of the grind to max power.  It's funny, a lot of casuals are griping now.  I am good with this change.  I always felt the D2 max level was way to easy to reach.  

 

Also, the new exotic changes look amazing.

From what I am reading and seeing, I'm excited about the future of D2.  
 
On the 24th we get the reveal of Warmind.

I'm not feeling it. 

 

Bungie are the Masters of hype. 

I'm going to stay in the dark on the next chapter o'destiny until I play it.

Let the game speak for its self.

I'm happy with what I saw.  I didn't want them to show everything. I like the modifications they're making to the exotics...

Speaking of Exotics, there are a bunch that I'm super happy to see returning in this expansion! Claws of Ahamkara (imagine a double Devour or Swift Strike melee build), the Armamentarium (double grenades are always a yes), Sleeper Simulant (an Exotic LFR, finally) and SUROS Regime (I don't think I even need to say anything here).
I'm also very excited about the Huckleberry, because we don't have an Exotic Kinetic SMG yet! Gah, May 8th is too far away.

I like what I saw in the reveal , they didn't show everything which is good , I don't understand why they have to bring the hive to Mars , all our enemies are trying to get a foothold on Mars , I guess it's our job to stop them . I looking forward to the new game mode , Escalation Protocol , it looks like a lot of fun !! Come on May 8th!!!

Oh, we get to fight the Hive ... again ... hmmmm ...

 

So that makes the conflict count

 

1 - Vex  (D1 Campaign)

1 - Cabal  (D2 Campaign)

2 - Fallen (House of Wolves, Rise of Iron)

3 - Hive 3 (Dark Below, Taken King, Warmind)

 

I'm tired of the Hive.  Frozen or not.  Frozen Vex would have been more interesting.

I am hoping that the Young Ahamkara Spine for the hunter gets it's double trip mines back. I

If you recall, the Hive had been trying to get into Rasputin in D1.  The first time we met that awful screaming witch was in the warmind bunker.  It's not a huge stretch to say they learned something and went to Mars where Rasputin was born.

Agreed. But I'm still hoping that there is a "new" enemy that we haven't learned about, yet....  The frozen hive are reskins, yes.  But they specifically stated a "new" enemy to face.  ????

No comment.

 

 

(edit)

 

Let me change this.  

 

I don't think Bungie has conned us.  I didn't watch his whole video. But I think his version of conned is flawed.  I think Bungie made poor decisions, based on their thoughts and feedback from the community and the game suffered because of it.  Did they screw up.  Yes.  Was it intentional as in ... they conned us.  No.  

 

I still feel the same way about D2 as I do about D1.  I payed $99.99 plus applicable sales tax for this game.

 

I have 563 active hours invested in D2.  

 

$100/563 = $0.178/hour played.  And I'm still playing.

 

I have a $60 game that I played 8 hours on and lost interest.  $60/8 = $7.5.hour

 

I know that the Warmind DLC will NOT fix everything.  But it's a huge start.  Heck update 1.1.4 was a huge win in my mind.  The game is getting better.  I still enjoy playing it.
