yeah i think the time for a destiny 1 port has long since passed sorry. doesnt seem like they're interested in doing any more with the game. at least they're keeping it online right now, tho.

D1 is going to be a wasteland when D2 drops. D1 is already a wasteland. Putting it on PC wont help anyone

Here's a 90 minute video from Byf going over a shitload of Destiny Lore and Timeline shit from D1

PvE is the star of the show here. ROFLMAO at P2P in the year of our Trump, 2017. Come on, Bungle. If you're going to go PC, at least go all the way.

The beta is trash for PVP testing. Just wait until game is out and everything is unlocked

pvp was my favorite part of the original. I hope they go with standard balancing instead of keeping pve balancing this time. it was annoying having all the trend chasers and constant nerfing in d1.

revolver meta was fun

stuff like that is fine their problem in D1 is they let things last for way too long. So if ppl found something that worked, unless it was super broken, it was gonna last for months. They took forever to tweak and implement pvp changes.

good news is everything out there about D2 seems to suggest thats top priority this time and why they focused so much on QoL and infastructure type shit. So they could pivot more quickly.

Just tried the open Beta. Happy for the PC performance but the game is still not what i want. I suppose i could enjoy it like the original but i don't want to drop 60$ on what i consider to be a husk of a game compared to it's potential.

very pretty, the rain in the intro mission was fancy

you can't solo or even duo the PvE? spawned into a game where one guy was halfway through the mission and the other guy was riding around on hoverbikes at the start

kinda lame that i have to go through the intro again just to try out the other two classes since that area doesn't give you much room to do anything

and what's with not labeling any of the powers or whatever or telling you how to use it or what it even is, respawn labels all the crap for me, actually so does blizzard in overwatch, hey wait a minute here

am i missing something or is this mission actually designed to batter you constantly with fall damage? and the whole get past the giant drill part was lol

would be cool if they let you futz a bit with the loot even if was mostly meaningless outside the scope of the demo like being silly overly or under built in some direction like Borderlands weapons sometimes are or adding some elemental effect, it just gives you the same stuff over and over which you can't combine or whatever so it's kinda blah

what a weird demo, though maybe it's just more for those who are already fans of the game already

The beta is dogshit, as I said earlier in the thread. The main game is going to have so much more for you to do and explore and fuck around with.

i was mostly just trying to get that first part across among general thoughts after playing it a couple times, it seems really confused about what it wants to sell to people and how to go about it

they probably would do better to give it a free weekend (with maybe a progress cap imposed) around thanksgiving than whatever this is to pick up newbies to the series

because i can see a lot of what could be the great components of this, but all its giving me is a shooter, with a mission that tries to kill me with fall damage, it doesn't even make clear to you that you can change the scopes/sights/grips/mags/etc. on weapons and move the various armor bonuses around, and nobody i played with seemed to understand how to activate the abilities

actually, it doesn't even really tell you that you have a whole five other weapons in your inventory :lol

edit: the one smg is way better than the default and since the game drops gobs of ammo for the bullet guns it and the one pistol are brutal with the fast reload mags...made me feel like some of the shit i wound up with on the siren in borderlands 1

I'm pretty confident the full game will have a better form of learning curve and tutorial popups. The beta does go with the notion that you have played Destiny before.

weren't even bars that fill up automatically while idling that i could tell, it's like why do i even have weapons or heroes or am running a game

and the clicking was very situational, only on things that moved around, seems like an unnecessary addition to Time Clickers aiming innovation when you could just have the stuff to click on stay in one place

can't really see that kind of gameplay taking off to be honest, it doesn't even appear to progress further for me while closed

you guys who have been keeping up probably already know this but i did a little reading about the game to try and familiarize myself a bit more about the powers/abilities system before playing once more with the warlock before i uninstall and the thing i complained about the loot in the demo not being unique is actually intentional across the full game:
Quote
Random weapon rolls are no more

Unlike the original game, every weapon you collect will have the same stats as any other of that type (so every Sunshot Exotic will be as powerful as the next you find), director Luke Smith told Mashable.

This means Bungie can balance weapons easier, but on the flipside, it gives players less incentive to keep collecting weapons to try and get the perfect editions of their favourites - something which Smith acknowledges as a potential problem it hopes to solve in the game one day.
also from piecing things together i realize now that playing through the intro is intended not only for some familiarity with the basics but to give you an exotic drop for your class, they probably just swapped out whatever is supposed to be there storywise (without playing it again i assume it's where they give you your first weapon in the story) for it which explains why what you get looks absolutely nothing like it and in the case of the hunter is a pistol while the art asset is a rifle :lol

probably easier to just leave it rigged up this way rather than have to do multiple checks and stuff as i know ripping out stuff to wall it off for a demo can be a bitch

Are standard parties still capped at 3? Any matchmaking for raids?

I think I might actually have 6 people to play this time around so the latter isn't a big deal, but then the former is a problem.
