Re: Destiny

So, finished the story.

Overall, story is OK-ish. Not as good as halo but that's sort of expected really given that halo was a whole story and didn't have to include any end-game comment.

The combat so far is really really good, a lot like halo/borderlands but with much less loot. I think a lot of the loot customization only comes in at the very end, don't expect to be running around with any rares at all until ~lvl 12-13, and even then they're... well rare.

Re: Destiny

People have apparently already max leveled this game?

Also seems like the early review in progresses are mixed.

Re: Destiny

Max character level and max level are not the same thing. You begin grinding to max your dude once his "level" is capped.

Re: Destiny

crucible seems to be a good way of getting rare weapons. I've gotten 3 so far.

Of course, I could just be getting insanely lucky.

It can be 6 on occasion - notably the "endgame" raid. But also most of the PVP Crucible modes.

Re: Destiny

Been playing solo for a couple of hours trying to get a feel for the game. I have no idea wtf I'm doing but I'm having fun doing it.

Still haven't figured out if I should be doing all the earth stuff 1st(Russia) or if there's something in the Tower that I'm missing. Maybe I shouldn't have avoided the beta.

Really not sure how to add someone other than seeing them in the Tower and joining a fire team.

Re: Destiny

So I'm supposed to be on PS4 by now but UPS is the devil, so I'm still on XBOX One (don't ask why I have both).

Anyway, it's mykb0t on both. Come at me.

Not the face, but the armor / etc. will change with your gear changes, and you can use "shaders" to change the colors of your favorite gear.

Re: Destiny

Watched some streams and read some reviews, seems like this might be overhyped. The gameplay looks super repetitive.

Re: Destiny

Probably seems like I'm fanboying it up, but I'm really loving this. Much more fun with a Fire Team. YMMV obviously.
