You wouldn't if you don't like it.

Loot loot loot. If you don't like games like Diablo 3, you're not gonna like this.

It's all about leveling your character and opening up the exclusive stuff like nightmare strikes and the Raid. Not like Bungie didn't warn you, they did say it was similar to a MMO. Those games where people go kill 20,000 pigs in a forest farming something or other.

That said the story is utter shizzle. I have no idea if they messed up and went with what they had, or if they never even planned on a character driven story and Activision swooped in and told them for $500 million, they better put something together.

I think it would have worked better if they just pushed the lore and some in game story telling via missions and items and tossed the character central narrative out the door. Could have kept mission / mission trees as separate contained stories. Sort of how Demons/Darks souls did it, where there's zero character driven stories and event.

Sold back to Amazon for $32

Bought Diablo III, Lords of the Fallen & Shadow of Mordor. I will be good until The Witcher and Bloodborne come out.

Patch 1.02 made some nice changes. The drops from doing the Weekly and Daily Heroics are nice, I got a legendary engram within the first five minutes of playing a game last night and I even had a rare go legendary with the Cryptarch. I had feared that they'd nerfed legendary engram drop rates, but that didn't seem to be the case last night.

Looks like you can now look through and equip stuff through the Destiny website at bungie.net. The models also seem to be updated and closer to whats in game, although not as good looking or textured.

Still none of that functionality on the android app. Hopefully they do bring it there soon.

I think we all can agree that that is LOL funny and pretty spot on. I'll still be playing this game for a long time though.

Agreed. The first game in a long time (other than Demon's Souls and Fallout 3) that I know I'll be playing for months.

It's funny how bad the reviews and hardcore opinion is on it. I totally get being disappointed that the marketing was pure bullshizzle dizzle and the charicter driven story an after thought... but damn, the gameplay and fun I'm having with you guys. Ultimately the game also isn't bad or broken upon release like so many.

Could it have been more / better? Yup! But I'm getting my $60 out of it as far as I'm concerned. Loot hunting and taking on the Raid, daily, and weekly challenges together is fun stuff.

I've certainly gotten my money's worth and then some. I do hope that they add more locations, and I assume they will in December, but they have added new content- Queen's Wrath, Iron Banner....but they're the same locations.

That is one of my fears. With the DLC I want to see new locations. I don't want to be playing new missions in the same areas we've been running around in for the past few months.

That one glitch video someone posted with the new missions, I can't see that being the DLC since they were all on the same locations (i.e. Earth, Moon, etc). I'll need to look at the video again.

They were on the Earth and Moon, but I thought they were in new locations on the Earth and Moon. I'd be fine with that, but I do want to see Mercury or a Jovian moon or something. I'm still convinced we will.

This game runs near flawlessly. The community will stay as long as fresh content is promised. And because of that, I expect them to release it.

I think the only new location is a strike / vault in the asteroid belt. The rest are new areas of the same planets / moon.

The cards on the website have placeholders for Jupiter, Saturn, and mention Mercury though

Tried PvP for the first time yesterday; it's pretty much all shotgun one-hit kills, special ability one-hit kills, and melees.  Anyone like Crucible?

Nope. I'm getting my crucible rep to lvl 3 and never going back.

Next patch is supposed to severely nerf shotgun range and increase the scout riffles. Won't fix the lag or punish the lag switchers though.

Is lag switching really a thing, or do you think your experience is because of your internet service?

I've admittedly only played Crucible a handful of times, but I only experienced a very little amount of lag. I need to try some of the other game modes.

I think I can tell who's just lagging and who is probably switching.  If you're jumping around right when you come up against me, but not other times, and you are not jumping around and I can easily and normally take you down when I flank you and you don't see me, I get suspicious. It doesn't happen often, but I have noticed it with some top scorers every now and then.  They move around the screen normally, unless under fire and attacking and boom it's lag/ghost city.  They they run away on the kill cam normally.

I've been not so quick to think most are switching, but I've heard from several AVS'ers that were big on XBox the last few generations that Bungie games were rampant with them since the HALO days.  So guessing Destiny might have brought them over

A lot of it is just normal lag though. Crucible was working much better for me in the Beta and first few weeks. It's a lag show 90% of the time now.

I actually didn't mind Crucible in the Beta, but I'm not sure whether that's because people hadn't learned all of the one-hit kill exploits yet, or the servers were handling the player load more effectively.

I enjoy Crucible, although I've been focusing more on PvE elements in recent weeks. No lag for me, although I have run into 2 people who were practically unkillable, just ghosting around all over the screen.

I do wish there was a Crucible mode with no supers though.

Is ranking up on crucible or vanguard solely related to completing bounties?

I feel like I have played a lot of both of these, yet I am still level 0. To buy something from those dudes I need to be level 2 or 3. Seems a long way away.
