Destiny’s House of Wolves expansion launches May 19th

    
36

Destiny fans ready for a new expansion after last December’s The Dark Below have to wait until only May 19th for the release of House of Wolves. Players who’ve purchased the $34.99 Expansion Pass will get this expansion as the final installment of that deal, and those who want to get House of Wolves separately will spend $19.99.

Previously leaked information indicated that this expansion will add a third raid, another Fallen strike, three new Crucible maps, and a new Awoken storyline. The official prologue trailer below confirms that players will be able to travel to the Reef to claim the mysterious treasures awaiting there.

Rozyn Benthalak As a part of the MMO crowd, I really appreciated how the Destiny raids are different than what I’m used to. I ‘m not particularly a shooter fan, but that physical skill element makes them scale much better. It’s a shame that the best, most unique and interesting content in the game is in those raids that apparently most players never get to.

Benthalak Honestly, I have friends who played the living hell out of it and don’t consider it wasted time or money and were begging me to get a console lol. Sure, it may not have resonated with the MMO crowd, but it seems to have pleased at least some people. /shrug I never played though so I can’t speak for myself.

Carthoris Don’t buy it, it sucked, check all the popular review sites rather than bother asking here imo. This is an mmo site and Destiny is a watered down shooter. I bought it played a week and sold it.

Still some very basic things they would need to add to get me to give the game another chance, the most important of which would be a group finder.  Without that, there is absolutely no chance I’d be willing to come back.  A friend of mine still plays this game on and off, and that is his biggest complaint about the game.  Being unable to complete content due to not having friends on psn who still play.  I also think the addition of trading and the option to duel would do this game a world of good, but that may just be me.

Carthoris ihatevnecks You really don’t get why you get those responses? That’s unfortunate. “That’s not at all what I said” is a hallmark of poor communication. What you think you said doesn’t matter! The skill you want is the ability to predict what people will hear. And in this case, those responses were highly predictable.

You address a group of people based on something they like (“Alright, Destiny-lovers”), assert that the thing you’ve defined them by is bad (“REALLY bad”), and act as though it’s a great privilege (“here’s your chance”) for them to convince you otherwise.

It also seems like you’re being dishonest in order to make your point. You’ve played every FPS ever and don’t understand how physical simulation can feel better or worse in different games? That’s odd.

Carthoris ihatevnecks Simple: when you tell people to sell you on a game and then immediately follow that up with 1) things they’re not supposed to tell you, and 2) a statement that the community’s already failed to do it, you come off as a trollish, sarcastic dick. Not someone who’s generally interested in possibly playing the game.

Smiggins Plenty seem to as the game’s population is still healthy when I log in occasionally.

ihatevnecks Carthoris That’s not at all what I said. 

I’ve asked in the PS4 sub on reddit several times and have yet to receive a positive reply about the game. Everyone basically says “the game sucks, don’t get it” but there are SO MANY PEOPLE playing it that I’m wondering if there’s something I’m missing about it or that they aren’t saying. CoD is about as deep as a puddle but it’s a fun game, people can easily point to the good things and explain that well of course it’s not competitive or serious, but it’s a great arcade shooter to mess around in. I’ve yet to see anyone explain what’s so good about Destiny that causes so many people to play it months after launch, when in the overwhelming opinion of *** literally every single person I’ve asked*** there’s much better games to play.

The only good things I hear are that it’s good if you have a bunch of friends to play with, which is true of practically any game, and that it has “tight gunplay” which makes no sense whatsoever. I’m in my late 30s and have played virtually every widely-released FPS that exists on PC over the years and I’ve never heard a more meaningless statement than “tight gunplay”. The only possible thing that can mean in my mind is that the bullets don’t have a wide spread or that recoil isn’t insane, which could be described equally well by saying the guns are all super accurate and I’m sure is not what people mean.

This was sort of a last-ditch “one last try” before I completely write the game off. I don’t know why you and @imkc30 are acting like I’m being a huge jerk for being honest and frank when I asked why play the game, nor do I understand why your knee-jerk response to someone saying they’re interested in buying the game is basically “fuck off asshole”.

Dorkish I’m missing the words “PC gamers” in the title of this website. Care to point them out?
