The Queen rewards those who take up her cause, and take down her enemies.
With all new game's comeing out I dont see time to put in this game with all the hrs that need to go in and play 4 or 5 other games. Thats me.
Agreed, my pre-Christmas gaming plan went from 2 a month to 1 every two months after Destiny. Man its addicting.
Yeah but they badly need to add more Raids. It's so repetitive otherwise.
Got the DLC pass for free :D otherwise I would feel for you, kind of tired of the content in games being small, but by the time I make 3 characters, fully level them up, get every thing I want out of this game and hopefully platinum it (that deathless raid though) the next one will be out, hopefully with more content
@Conzul, you mean strikes as the only raid as of now is the vault of glass and what i have heard is it is a total b&%#h!!
My problem with Destiny is how unrewarding the game is. You can just push and push against higher level content, challenge your group and their ability in game, complete your goal and get basically nothing at the end. Maybe a blue, or some random gear dye. Then you run to the Cosmodome, shoot level 5 enemies that endlessly spawn out of a cave for literally 30 minutes and leave with more gear than you could have gotten after spending 5 hours in strikes/raids. Sure, it may not be useful gear, but it's STUFF. They need to reward people better for doing actual content. Bosses need to actually drop shit, period, always. Two Blue Engrams guaranteed, with a higher change to drop a legendary than a normal enemy (by like 20%).
@ScottyHoss The deathless raid is actually pretty easy. Just wait for a day where the bounty is to do a raid without dying. Everyone will be playing really carefully because they want to get the bounty on their first try. That's how I got the trophy for mine, and I wasn't even trying to get it at the time.
The problem with that is that if a teammate dies they'll leave and you'll be short on support. I'll probably just have to set it up with my friends to protect one player, then repeat.
Gotcha - well, if you ever need some help, I'll do a raid with you. I have it on PS4, level 27 Titan. If you're interested, send me a private message and I'll hit you up with my PSN.
I LOVED this game for the first week. PvP is really fun, but I'm thinking of trading it in already. * The same thing happened with GTA 5. Played the heck out of it for about a week, and then realized it wasn't as good as I was convincing myself it was. * Destiny is a good game, but it doesn't have enough for me, not with all the other games I want to play competing against it. * Once again....the Crucible is a hell of a lot of fun, and the sparrow is arguably my favorite video game vehicle of all time, but this game just isn't "doing it" for me anymore. And I was defending the heck out of this game the first week.....then I hit the "wall", and any desire to continue playing is lost. * I was addicted to the newness of it, but not exactly the gameplay elements themselves. I realize that now. I'm glad I got to experience Destiny for what it currently is, but I just won't have time for it anymore. * Smash Brothers 3DS, Forza H2, I still need to finish some Legend of Heroes games, Got COD & Halo coming up, along with Smash Wii U & Captain Toad. I just don't see where, for me, Destiny actually fits in. * I'm glad it exists, but it just isn't keeping my attention anymore. Just remembered STEAM FALL Sale & Holiday sale too... Probably another 10+ games that will occupy my time. Destiny was cool, but it got old REAL QUICK. I'd still give it a 8.5/10 for what it was though.
@3-4-5 I broke up with a girl for all those same reasons listed
@ byronimus "I was addicted to the newness of it, but not exactly the gameplay elements themselves." Did she want to do the same things over and over again like Destinys story?
Destiny is the first full price game I have EVER bought digital at release. Boy, do I regret it. Normally, the only games I buy digital at release are indie games or AAAs which are digital only. And I very much enjoy Destiny, but I am SO regretting the inability to trade it in. It's not quiite worth the steep entry price. I especially regret it with games which look REALLY worthwhile coming up, eg Shadow of Mordor, Alien Isolation, The Evil Within... My wallet...
Let me guess, student with no girlfriend or life ?
With everything that was on my list getting delayed to next year, I have all the time in the world to play this.
Ha, wish I could say the same... I've got a newborn daughter.. but I'm still finding time here to it a game in here and there.... :)
Wtf is the queens emissary? You do the same f n thing you did before they gave a name to it. Do these mutha luvas think we are stupid. The best part of destiny is that damn cave for gear. Forza horizon hurry the f up!
It's just more bounties asking you to do more stuff that you've already been doing in other bounties, except they change the requirements just a bit. Instead of going to mars to collect something, you can now collect stuff from enemies on any planet. That kind of "fun".
Looking forward to this, but if it's a new area, why in the world is it only open for a limited time? I love this game but good god.. Its repetitive enough.. Add things to do each week and keep them open! I've spent over 40 hours and got crap loot.. I know it's all random but this literally ruins the game's reward system when you see people running around with nice gear-not necessarily that they worked hard for it, they just got a lucky drop.
It's not a new area. It's just more bounties to do (the same one's we've been doing) and for everyone you do you get to replay old story missions for guaranteed legendary gear at the end. Yo dawg I hear you liked rehashed content...it's not even worth it :/
Whats the point in f** girding for the same looking guns but with better stats they didn't even bother to mix up models a little bit, same shit over and over again
The part that bugs me is when you do get a legendary engram to pop, it gets deciphered into a blue... That or in a friend's case, the legendary or exotic you do get is for a different class that you do want to play right now...
No legendary weapons or armor?
Yeah a bunch a crappy rares :(
Well, that auto rifle looks pretty dope though.. did you see the impact rating on it?
You get the good stuff from doing her missions we already got all the Queens Legendary Gear
Yeah, did a few today. Got the helmet and the chest plate. I just dismantled them.
I just got a new joystick Sunday. I was at level 2 when lasted played Destiny. I am already bored of the sp after reaching level 6. I being trying the mp but level 6 against 26 and higher player is a noob feast. I seen some level 27 guy floating in the air with a all gold Super Saiyan 3 Goku glow look. I just ran indoors. I knew a Spirit Bomb was coming next. lol
Most people don't seem to understand that the weapons in PVP are balanced evenly. The level advantages of each weapon are disabled, so every Auto Rifle will have the same damage level and so on. The only differences between players are the abilities, but those abilities don't make a huge difference if you know what you are doing.
Not quite... I love the PvP but it's not balanced at all. I have a legendary shotgun with extremely long range and every time I get a kill with it it does higher damage. It also reloads SUPER FAST when I melee someone. That's whether I'm playing Crucible or co-op. If they want to make it balanced then the weapon attributes need to be disabled whe playing multiplayer. I'm a level 27 and could out shotgun a lower level all day just because mine has better attributes for it.
The weapon specials/advantages are not disabled in pvp. The imbalance is horrendous.
@isa_scout Whats the point of having Legendary or exotic weapons if there not special in some way.
Lmfao all these people bitching about fairness and weapon stat modifiers in the crucible and being "fairly equipped". Booooo hoooooo. Has nobody played Call of Duty before? Ohhh the fuckin irony of some people who complain about this game.
LMAO... sorry to laugh, but that's hilarious, the way you describe it... sad, but true..
i PWN people in the crucible when im level 6. It mostly eliminates the level differences. You just have to be sort of awesome at FPS. Im no longer level 6, ive got 2 20's.
That loot is very disappointing.....
Now on this I agree with you!
I got a legendary chest piece for my warlock. I dismantled that goofy looking crap and used the shards to upgrade my sunbreakers. Thats the only useful thing.
I don't understand how people are saying there isn't enough to do. Every week so far they have released new content of things to do. This one even says it has new game modes, which means less repetition.
I agree when people make these comments I immediately know they aren't high level players in the 25 and up. They don't have top end gear for sure and the number one tale that they are playing it wrong is that they play it solo this game is super community team focused.
exactly. this game is a 10 in my eyes. shut up and take my money bungie.
There's not enough content to go to level 100. There should be though. This game should have been free to play like planet side.
@ion666 Well you proved that you don't know jack...level cap is 30 and someone just hit it. So what does your comment reveal about you...well if you don't know the cap then you most likely haven't hit lvl 20 which means that you have absolutely no clue about what content the end game contains. When you don't know what the hell you're talking about best to just move on because those that do will call you out just like I did...
it's not that there isn't enough to do... there just isn't enough verity in what you are doing or the mission types. doing the same strikes over and over be at level 10 or 28(which I am now) does get boring.. when they release a "new" event and basically all you are doing is the same strike mission again with the epic modifier on, it's still the same mission.
Yes, but people are overlooking the fact that new content, so far, has been released every week. Very new, different, and FREE content. This new content this week is even supposed to introduce new game modes, which means MORE VARIETY! Are people just impatient, or do they play this game all day long? I've played every day since release for about 3-4 hours and I'm Lvl 21, I haven't even played all the strikes, as I've helped friends level up and done some things with them. In fact, I still have 2 more story missions left. I haven't even scratched the surface in the Crucible. I've played maybe 8 or 9 Crucible matches. So, if anything, I'm behind on the content, and I think I've put a fairly reasonable amount of time into this game already. It just seems to me that if people have jobs, and spend 8 hours a day at work 5 days a week, then there is only so much you can get done by now. Like I said, I still have plenty to do, and they keep releasing new content, lol. I love it.
@ ion666 Please point me in the direction of any online multiplayer gamer game that has a level 100 cap on release. I don't know of any that even comes close. Most top out around 50 or so.
For the way I'm playing at the moment I've renamed the game Destiny 1.5 - Farming Simulator.
shoot the cave!
Best fun I've had playing Destiny, sure beats the storyline. This is not meant to be trolling, I am genuinely enjoying the cave. Killed about 1500 acolytes today alone...still only shitty green or blue friggin' equipment though :(
i hang out at the cave when im bored and waiting for friends to log in. helped me level my alt easily from 4 to 20 in a day. that said, i much prefer playing strikes or PVP with my friends. the game is really enjoyable. the story is there, but its purposely shrouded itself in mystery with the hopes of keeping you interested for future expansions. I wish they had done that a bit differently. it was a bold move, and i dont think it payed off.
So a good portion of your player base has run out of content after completing 90% of whats on offer and gathering a full purple armor set with maybe an Exotic or two... Then you release a bunch of blues for new content... Win
no not run out of content. As of now only 2 people are level 30. As for the Raids, they are not repetitive. Show me a group who has beat it on hard. Not ONE. Raid resets tomorrow. Every week it resets for each new instance you get a guaranteed legendary drop at each checkpoint. My group got Raid specific gear and weapons designed for the raid itself. We maxed it out and are trying to complete the armor set to take on hard. Really? There is so much to do, so many ways to farm. Clearly this game isnt for kids, since they can't grasp what they are supposed to do once they hit Level 20. On top of that, the PVP is off the chain. Has anyone who hates the game tried to play with a full party? Probably not. Crucible is definitely Raid practice and builds teamwork. Agent of Nine on weekends for exotics, public events, new multiplayer modes every weekend, new bounties to accept in 2 hours. I have sunk over 3 days in this game, (in game time) and i still havent beaten the story because I got caught up with my FRIENDS because you can't be a fedora wearing antisocial douche and have fun. You have to party up and talk. I've gotten 30 new friends in 2 weeks and guess what? They are still playing. This game may not be for you, but it's story takes longer to beat than halo 1 on normal. The strike missions are a lot of fun with friends and as for legendary loot randoms, that shits awesome. Glad you can't easily just get a bunch of legendary in one day and beat the game. You have no idea what those blues will be from the queens bounty yet or how they will factor in. Quit crying for free updates. Go defend Titanfall which has wayyyyyyyyyYYYYYyyyYyy less content than this and cost the same and is boring as fuck. Those that complain make me sad, because they have no idea how to play this game. Its not COD, not Halo, nor Borderlands. Its Destiny. Its own IP. Go back to your shitty games that only add maps for the same regurgitated BS you've happily bought this past decade. Go ahead and trade your shit in, because those of us who do enjoy would gladly not see the haters at the tower. Here's what you do. Enroll in Jelly School, because bro, you are mad salty.
And yet, no one cares. You know how those two people made it to 30? By grinding. You know how the raid was beaten? By grinding. Do you know what most people are complaining about? The #&@$+/"=& grinding. I have a level 28 Titan and a level 23 Warlock and I am about done with all this grinding. It might have been bearable if Bungie knew what a playlist is but grinding random strikes when the same one comes up 3 times in a row, it starts becoming a joke. It's said that the definition of insanity is doing something over and over while expecting a different outcome. I think that sums up Destiny pretty well.
@Elwenil I honestly simply do not understand this argument about doing things over and over. I know this isn't an MMO by Bungie's definition, but since everyone else thinks it is. That is what an MMO is. You repeat shit every day/week. What about any other FPS? You repeat shit every day/weak. At least Destiny is giving us new things to do each week so far (yes, I know it has only been 2 weeks). You can't say that about other games on consoles.
Ah yes, more things to do this week. I take it you mean the Queen's bounties? Yeah, some added content. Just more grinding the same tiny areas on a handful of worlds.
"Do you know what most people are complaining about? The #&@$+/"=& grinding." It's amazing that so many people didn't know what they were buying, even after numerous previews and the beta. I have no sympathy.
I played the Alpha and the Beta as well as looked at all the news from Bungie before buying. I believed Bungie when they said that Destiny, meaning this game, not all of them in their 10 year contract or whatever, was going to have a deep, immersive story and huge areas to explore. Instead we got one small circle to travel around on each planet. WTF happened to the rest of Earth? The Bounty guy even mentions The Gulf of Mexico in his ramblings, but we don't get to see anything except on small area in Russia. We can't even explore the city we are supposedly protecting. Where are all these huge expanses to explore again? Or are we expected to grind our exploration as well and just pretend we haven't all seen the Cosmodrome six ways from Sunday already? So while you may not have any sympathy for me, and I checked my bucket of f**ks and it's empty, so none to give on that point, I certainly take issue with this tiny farce that we were all beaten over the head with for the last couple years only to find out that I bought a luxury car with no seats, or a new house with no bathroom. So the next time I see you posting nonsense about some complaint that you have, I will in return have no sympathy. Simply because you seem to think your opinion is the only one that matters and you can't see past your rectum to see that many, many people are not happy with how this game was portrayed in contrast to how it actually is.
Bungie can't expect Destiny to stay at the top after the christmas period, sure a lot of people will be picking up destiny at christmas but shortly after Q1 the game will drop considerably, expect more free content and a level cap incrase then maybe even a 3rd subclass, Bungie needs to add more crucible game modes, allow matchmaking for raids and allow more in depth in game conversation.
no one will pick it up, because everyone already has.
That's what they said about Last of Us when they announced the remastered version.. How's that doing? There's still plenty of people yet to purchase the game. Over here it's quite common for people to get their paycheck at the end of each month, it's also when the clubs and bars do their biggest events :D So just there alone is a few people that have yet to pick it up :D
bounties, do alot of head shots. Maybe more is unlocked with rep. gain.
The comments about this game remind me of how i felt about watchdogs. So I understand when people say negative things about destiny. I like destiny though its really fun for me.
I didn't like Watchdogs either , was just bland to me . But I really do enjoy Destiny. Mayne it is because I play with my son and a few friends. I also like loot whoring like Diablo. I really don't like shooters , although I did enjoy Halo campaign with my son. If they add on more free content mixed in with DLC I envision playing this off and on for the next year or so . Do many new games coming out I will probably play them and when I want a break throw in Destiny for a raid or some PvP. It's a great game to me, most games have some sort of grinding , so a lot of what people fault the game for doesn't bother me. Not sure why people continue to hate on a game they don't play. Go play something else? Plenty of stuff out there for everyone's likes.
Do I need dlc to do these?
Nope, the bounties appear when you log in. I think it would have been DLC if the reviews were more positive and less about how empty the world feels. Activision have thrown us a bone! :)
I am still loving this game despite its flaws. No game is perfect and certainly never had it all one day one either. I am looking forward to future content in the game.
Sweet I love doing the same mission I must have done 20 times already to get some different loot after grinding it for ages. Sigh :( not even a new mission.
I am level 26 and the effort and struggle to get to even this point that people have been describing has not been my experience at all....its honestly the complete opposite. I didnt use the murder cave and i dont play all day everyday, i would if i could. I just made sure i had my bounties in proper order and made sure my rep went to where i needed it to be. I found my first legendary gun and boots during patrol on mars and bought exotic gauntlets from the shop on the weekends with all of the strange coins i have accumulated in crucible. I think people are playing this game like Diablo and thats not what they want you to do. I have about 27 motes of light now and plan on getting as many as i can for the weekend so i can buy an exotic helmet. Then i will have easily upgraded all of my armor to legendary+ status without any mindless grinding.
