Apparently the destiny 1 story is pretty good if you read all of the lore cards and then fill in all the gaps, but what’s actually in the game is terrible.

That's because it was essentially pasted into the game at the last minute: https://kotaku.com/the-messy-true-story-behind-the-making-of-destiny-1737556731

I already hate the monetization in games like Destiny (not being able to return after any length of time without shelling out $40) but I got into 1 with TTK and 2 with Forsaken. That’s the exact opposite of what most people do, but with games as a service or MMOs it seems to be the best bet: buy in for a discount after the patches / expansions fix all the problems.

Blizzard’s in the same spot with WoW. Battle for Azeroth launched unfinished and shitty and by the time the second year rolls around when all the fixes would typically be in the damage has been done.

Maybe someone will learn to release Games as a Service when they’re done, but more than likely we’ll just see more egregious monetization to try to suck even more money out of the shrinking playerbase.

it doesn't help that the new player experience isn't very good. the game doesn't bother explaining why you should look at item perks, the actual campaign is tedious and level gated and you end up running all the content over and over in the endgame anyway, and the grouping is impressively incompetent to the point of being entirely useless in game. all that aside, i really enjoy the game, but even with the recent discounts and including the old DLC with forsaken, it's tough to recommend to new players

Also, massive Black Armory story spoiler leaked. they really are moving the "story" forward in these small seasons instead of just big dlc

In some ways. The made the story weird space fantasy again, add way more stuff to do that is also rewarding, tons of secrets and side lore, exotics are exotic again, random rolls!

Even though Bungie is BIG and has LOTS OF MONEY, I'm still kinda blown away that they got the Destiny IP.

This isn't like Hitman where it's a small IP that barely sells a million copies these days and SE was disappointed in and was gonna can the franchise anyhow. Destiny is a multi-million seller GaaS that brings in tons of $$ each month to Activision. Like I'd love to find out some day how much that cost Bungie to keep the IP. Like 100 million? 200 million? More? How the hell can an independent developer afford something like that?

Bungie never signed the IP over to Activision, they always owned it.

Also the original deal called for four Destiny games along with four expansion packs through 2020. With various DLCs inbetween.

Original Plan was:
Destiny - Fall 2013
Expansion - Fall 2014
Destiny 2 - Fall 2015
Expansion - Fall 2016
Destiny 3 - Fall 2017
Expansion - Fall 2018
Destiny 4 - Fall 2019
Expansion - Fall 2020

ohhhhhh, ok now this makes a ton more sense. So they just had to buy out of their deal for the rest of the expansions/sequels.

Huh, Bungie was supposed to develop a prototype "Action-Shooter Game" for Activision termed "Marathon" after "Destiny Game" related income surpassed $375 million.

To compare what actually happened
Destiny - Fall 2014
Destiny expansion 1 - Fall 2015
Destiny expansion 2 - Fall 2016
Destiny 2 - Fall 2017
Destiny 2 expansion - Fall 2018


Anyhow Bungie got a pretty good deal and Activision desperately wanted the guys that made HALO to build them a universe.
Considering the rumblings of Blizzard this might've been the right move. Even if going independent doesn't work out they'll be able to land safely at Microsoft.

Never knew it was supposed to be this rapid, although I should have assumed as much.

Makes me wonder why their pipeline was so bad, then. Surely they can't have sandbagged this.

I believe it was their engine that was outdated and caused all sorts of trouble
Plus of course the rewriting and retooling of Destiny shortly before release because the first tests got less than a favorable reception.

My memory is kinda hazy on it but I remember the writing staff leaving and such.

So I installed this on PC since it was free and Anthem left me wanting to shoot stuff for loots. I assume it'll be a while before I need the DLCs or can they unlock stuff for me right away?

If all you have is Vanilla, then you are missing out on a lot to do.

Honestly at this point Forsaken is a requirement, since it includes everything anyway.

The "Annual Pass" content you could live without, don't buy unless you really want more stuff to shoot and loot.

Good to know. I may end up going to Anthem when it comes out if the PC performance isn't shit but it sounds like this'll have plenty to do. Didn't realize Forsaken came with the other DLCs too so that's nice. Guess I'll level up to max and see what there is to do after that.

While Anthem is out "bombing" - we're still trucking along here in Destinyville. Apparently the turn-off from Anthem is getting people to revisit D2 or even start it up.

Season 6 (Joker's Wild) starts on March 5th. Details about it are supposed to turn up today on the TWAB.

Anyway here's a 1v4 I did the other day while grinding for the Mountaintop in competitive.

Not in PvP unless they add custom matches. PvP in destiny isn't in world, it's handled like any old matchmaking competitve shooter. You select a playlist of gamemodes, and it sends you to special made pvp maps just like halo or cod.

If you wanna do co op stuff with your friends you can in groups of 3. Random people will be running around the hub world though but you won't have to play with them

Sure there is. There is matchmaking on some activities, and PC version has text chat so you can at least talk to the people there, unlike console where you're at the mercy of people using Mics publicly (nobody does).

kinda surprised that they're pulling the whole thing off of battle.net and going onto Steam at this point rather than just adding Steam

but if that means Steam Achievements and Trading Cards, then I'll wait to finally play the rest of this until then :success

should give me Forsaken for having the game before it went F2P :doge
