Leaderboard: Are you playing Destiny 2?

I was super worried about losing my whole guild to Destiny 2’s PC beta last week, but after the beta fling, they’re back to chattering about Guild Wars 2 and plotting adventures there. I’m not sure it’s a slam on Destiny 2, either, just that we’re chiefly PC fans, so the console launch isn’t much of a draw, and the PC launch is still almost two months off. Meanwhile, Guild Wars 2 is very much live, with an expansion just a few weeks away.

For today’s Leaderboard, let’s see whether you’re like my guildies — are you playing Destiny 2?

I will be playing it on the PC, but only because I got it with WoW gold through the token process. I did play Destiny 1 on the PS4 While I did enjoy my time there while my friends also played, the fact that I knew next to nothing about Destiny after many hours of play since the story wasn’t really in the game like it should have been at launch, I had no desire to go back. But since I’m essentially getting it for free, what they hell, why not. Can’t be disappointed at this point by anything lol

Not for me.

First, it’s not an MMO. Second, not out yet on PC. Third, the first Destiny sounded pretty awful and it looks like they’re sticking to a similar formula for the new one.

Yep, little bit, finished the story and now on the gear grind, think it will be a while till my friends are even close to being ready for the raid so I am not in a huge rush

Basically switching between Destiny 2 grind and Elite Dangerous grind haha, what a time to be alive :D

No. I am not playing it. I do not consider it to be a true MMO, much less an MMORPG.

Playing console right now with one group of friends and I will no doubt play the PC version with another. I’ll pick one to main though depending on who wants to keep playing. Sometimes my friends can be pretty fickle.

Undecided. Strikes against it are that I already got my chosen shooter for now (MEA, while I do SP of it at least), and that D2 isn’t really that compelling looking of a title to me (but more than D1), and that there is no strong D1 gameplay recap (game or D2 mode) for PC players and I prefer to start ‘from the beginning’. Points for it are that I had some fun in a preview, I would be good with joining friends if they’re playing, and there’s more story this time (meh as it might be). Summary: drag me into it, and I’ll sigh and try it out, ha.

I’m still up in the air on this. It looks good, and I do like shooters, but I already have enough other game goodies to play. I got plenty of time to decide so I’m in no rush, shooters on console don’t do it for me.

I’d like to, but I can’t since PC version isn’t available yet. Sure, I also have a couple of consoles (both XBOne S and PS4) but I much rather prefer playing with keyboard + mouse, so I only use those consoles for console-exclusive games (especially the PS4… I use XBOne mostly as a streaming media player).

Reader

I have two xbox one’s in my house but I only use them to play games with my family. As for Destiny 2 I already paid $100 for the digital deluxe edition on PC so that I get all of the DLC plus all the extra goodies.

Yeah got a PS4 myself, but i knew as soon as they announced a PC version that would be the version id be getting. Went ahead and got the full hundred dollar package as well. Ill pick it up for the PS4 later to play with friends on that platform, but my “main” is going to be PC.

Reader
Sray

Right there with you. I could be playing it right now as I have both consoles, but I tried Destiny 1 on the PS4 and felt that it was lacking… a mouse and keyboard. Plus after playing in the PC beta, there’s just no chance I tolerate the toned down console version.

This is the one and only game that any of my friends play online as a group anymore (or the first one was, but I missed the boat), so I pre-ordered to play with them. It’s been two days and I’m already way behind them, heh. It’s definitely more MMOish than the first one with the open areas having repeatable quests, public events, explorable secrets and whatnot. And man did they double down on jumping puzzles if that’s your thing. The entirety of the Titan play area is a non-stop jumping puzzle. *twitch*

Reader

Not my type of game, how ever I respect a quality product; hopefully it fits into the MMO genre.

I’m already getting my sci-fi shooty-hack’n’slashy-space-magic fix for free from Warframe :)
I might be more interested if not for everything I’ve heard about the first game’s expensive DLC packs and lacklustre story, so if Destiny 2 improves on those and I hear good things maybe I’ll give it a look sometime next year…

Reader

When on sale maybe but currently meh at the “next big thing” which will probably burn out quickly as per the norm these days.

Destiny got one more chance (from me) because of its potential, I got in on console completely expecting to be disappointed but I ended up walking away pleasantly surprised. My big issue with the first one (pre-taken king) was the story/lore and every mission ending with a horde mode type of scenario. All that has pretty much been fixed with D2 from what I’ve seen so far. Everything has purpose or at the very least, you know why you’re doing what you’re doing.

That said, there are some parts that look really good on console and some that look like complete shit…cant explain it…im hoping on PC I can amp up the settings to its maximum potential, some of the environments are really impressive.

End of the day, I think its good…I don’t really care about the p2w stuff cause I don’t/won’t do the grind, I don’t care about gear or raids or running strikes to infinity and back like kids do these days.

I said I wasn’t going to because it doesn’t seem like a new game it seems like an expansion.. but I did end up buying it and playing it. The story has been good so far and the changes minimal. Its as good as the first one and the first one was good but it isn’t mind blowing.

Reader

I bought the PC version and decided I didn’t want to wait 2 months so I’m playing on the PS4 for now. Nothing else comes close in the loot shooter space and it’s been a blast to play, even with a controller.

PvE shooters don’t do much for me. Destiny is not the game that is going to change that. Although Anthem might be when it comes out…

Bhima Jenkins

Would love to play this, but Bungie sorta bungled the game design in that, PvP is 4v4, but most of PvE is 3-player. Wouldn’t it make obvious sense that a group of 4 friends would probably like to PvE AND PvP together?

Reader
Kawaii Five-O

3 player? Really? That seems like such a bizarre number to design cooperative play around.

Reader

This! When my husband and I play non-MMO multiplayer games we usually play with friends, another couple. This makes it really tough. :(

Exactly. Its also why I and 3 of my friends will not be buying Destiny 2. Sad, because it looks to be a very polished game.

Reader
A Dad Supreme

Yeah playing right now.

Bought it for the kids but they are in school so… borrowed the disc lol.

Reader
Sray

Yup, yup… “borrowed” I’m sure. hehe…

Are the kids actually getting it back, or will it suddenly become “inappropriate for them”?

Reader
A Dad Supreme

Heh yeah it’s theirs. I don’t like first-person games generally.

I just downloaded the disc and played on my PS4 which you can do, but when the DLC comes out, I’m only buying it for them, since that part of continuing the game will require a code.

I’m more of a The Division fan of playstyle rather than the jumping/flying style.

Nope. Not a fan of the exclusivity deals that they seem intent on doing for content. As companies talk more about cross platform game play with each other I don’t want to be hypocritical and support bad business practices so we see them as common place in the future.

deekay_plus
Reader
deekay_plus

the tech on cross platform play is still being devved. as simple as it should be it’s not quite as such, and the tech dev has languished since shadowrun on 360 back in 2007.

Reader
Arktouros

Yes but I don’t want a future where “Totally Awesome Unicorns” is coming out for PC, XBox and Playstation and Playstation gets the “Rainbow Fields” raid DLC three months in advance before everyone else, XBox gets the “Totally Horns” cosmetics exclusive for the first year and PC getting the shaft cause no one is paying the developers for exclusive Unicorn content goodness.

What we do and what we support sends a message of what we find acceptable. When people buy Destiny 2 they’re saying the timed exclusives that Sony was able to buy was OK. When we see more of it in the future in other games it’s because we financially supported in the past.

I recognize and am realistic enough that I realize most people don’t care and just want to have a good time, and that’s fine, but damned if it isn’t annoying a few years from now when they’re complaining about the XYZ exclusive how did games get like this when it was their very own attitude that got us here in the first place. I’d rather simply not be a hypocrite and it’s not exactly as if I’m suffering from a lack of other games to play.

deekay_plus
Reader
deekay_plus

sure that’s a great future. but calling it hypocrtical is ignorant of the present.

and in dsitiny’ 2’s case it was never said to be a timed exclusive (it’s on both consoles at once which belies that) just for further bug fixing and polish to get it right by us.

so utlimately this is nothing to do with exclusive or else it would release on ps first and xbone and windows at the time later.

Reader
Arktouros

What I described is the present.

The content Sony paid to keep exclusive (cosmetics, dungeon and battleground) are done because the developers of the game took their guaranteed pay day from Sony and kept the content exclusive to Sony’s system. Now they also want me to pay the exact same price for the game on my platform, PC, with less content. I’m paying exact same amount of money for less of the game.

If I pay them that money, I’m letting them know it’s acceptable to take money from Sony cause they’ll still get their full pay day from me. I’m also letting other game developers know that I will support them regardless of what exclusivity deals they setup with other companies. And in 1, 3, 5, 10 years from now when they work out those cross platform issues you were talking about originally and every game has XBox exclusive this and PlayStation exclusive that I can say, without being a hypocrite, that I never supported exclusivity deals by never supporting the games who started them.

There are PS4 exclusive cosmetics, dungeon, and battleground. I believe that’s what they’re speaking about. I’d complain, but I’m playing it on the “correct” platform. Heh!

It’ s not so much that there is an exclusivity scheme on Destiny, it’s the details.

1: The exclusive content isn’t sold separately. It’s cut out of each game and expansion. Xbox, PC, and PlayStation customers all pay $60 for the base game and $20-$30 per expansion, but only Playstation customers get everything they paid for at the time they paid for it.

2: Most other games have 30-60 day exclusivity windows. Destiny’s window is one year.

3: Did I say “one year”? I meant “at least one year”. It’s not even a fixed term. After one year windows for the original Destiny base game and its 1st expansion, Sony and Activision put two year windows on the 2nd and 3rd expansions. And then, to put a cherry on top, they released Destiny 2 before those last two expansions’ windows expired.

Im still wary to try destiny 2, if only because i got burned bad with the first one. I was expecting an open world on the level of at least half of skyrim or fallout not a instance/phased based shooter. I also didnt like how they cut up the story in order to sell DLC, particularly on a console game where I was used to just paying the 60 bux to get at least the main story with DLC having side content.

apparently according to reviews there’s a whole solid sp game level campaign that can be soloed or coop’ed.

so that’s pretty positive news.

Pre-ordered and looking forward to playing at PC launch. There’s really not an alternative for a PVE FPS game other than The Division, and that game lasted all of about a week.

it does a bit especially if you don’t up the dificulty level while you adapt to it. i think that’s primarily why we stopped playing when we did, nothing i do think we’ll come back to it in teh future.

I fall into both of the first two choices: I’m playing D2 on console right now, and I will be playing it on PC when it launches there in October. So far I’m having a blast.

I got a free code for the PC version when I grabbed some new Nvidia cards for my new rig last week, so it’s like the decision was made for me: waiting until October 24.

i got a free code from nvidia too but checks for the hardware. in any case i preordered to get into the beta a day early and play with my guildies who did the same. so i am giving the code to a guildie so she can pew pew with us after work and school. :D

I am still sitting on the fence for this one for the most part. I do like a shooter but what I have seen streamed hasn’t lit the fires of my excitement as yet.

Honestly the biggest thing that is of interest to me is that it has Nathan Fillion voicing a character rather than the actual game play shown. So I think this will be a wait till it gets discounted game rather than a day one must buy for me personally.

Not playing. The Beta didn’t particularly impress me and I don’t have much time to spend on videogames. I might dip into it at a later date to a lower price but most assuredly not at launch and not in the near future.

Undecided. I’m enjoying Path of Exile, HotS and WoW enough that I don’t really feel compelled to jump into a new game right now. Maybe after I upgrade in January. But then something else cooler will be coming out.
