Destiny review: It's a small world after all [SideQuesting]

"Destiny follows a main story, but after those missions, your character will only get better if you put enough time and effort into improving it through a series of PvP matches, challenges, and special events, all of which become extremely repetitive."

Or not. Though I will say that mmos, rng and me do not mix at all.

Of the 10 purple engrams I have got, 0 have been purple. And I've been stuck on level 23 for 3 days b/c nothing had higher light level. No reflection on the game, as many do get them. It's me and I had the same results in DCUO and!

Loot system sucks. Needs more weapons and armor like borderlands instead of being a halo generic with mmo element. This way everyone has more chances to get good items that increase their light and unique look. Having cool weapons and all. Even have an option to customize the weapon look.

The mechanic where purple Engrams usually resulting in blues is absolutely soul crushing.

Yea that's because they are obviously lower budget then most mmos. So they don't have the content there so they make the grind longer with moves like that

DanteVFenris6661492d ago (Edited 1492d ago )

That's the difference between the hardcore and casual. Dcuo I'm a couple points from top gear level. And wow I was too. Almost every mmo I've played. In every game you grind in some way. You just choose your grind. I prefer to grind and have something to show for it. Ect against players. Where I can woop ass after all the hard work. Though destiny doesn't offer that as pvp is pretty balanced despite level differences. Though higher levels definitely do have an advantage it's not dcuo. Where I can kill a weak level in 1 punch and they can't kill me no matter how hard they tried.

Do dailys collect the coins and buy the legendary from store... problem solved.

yeah loot system is crap.
the amount of blues i have got and they been greens,i even had a few purples that turned out to be anything but purple.
nothing for defeating the bigger bosses is also stupid.

plus in PVP(crucible) the loot is totally random to the point the worst person gets 2 items and others get nothing.

but regarding strikes if u kill a end boss u should get soemthing

bryan81001492d ago

Yea. Freaking working your a** off to kill spider tank or the moon boss is a b*tch and I get crap for all that work. Get a rare engram n turns uncommon. So blown.
