Destiny 2 - I don't have time to explain Bungie's MMO shooter 2.0


#1424

Still playing nightly on pc if any needs a body. Hoping to crack 290 with this week with titan and hunter. Baby lock in progress.

Hope to try the raid sometime after 295.

Would he mind if I appropriated the expression? It’s cool as (regular) shit.


#1426

Somebody please render a enormeous chest, and inside this chest 2 tokens.


#1427

I think he’d be fine with that. He’s no longer with us, but I doubt the phrase was original to him!


#1428

At least somebody wont be getting a xmas present from bugnie.


#1429

IGN India? How many IGNs are there?


#1430

You know I was just gonna post that. Who knew there even was an IGN india? And more importantly, why is there an IGN india? They all speak english.

Of course there are a lot of Indians, four times as many as the USA alone, so maybe the thought is a site specifically tailored towards them would have higher uptake or something.


#1431

Yeah this is probably true. Besides, a lot of countries just want to have their own sub-cultures like gaming, and not feel totally dependent on some mega-global-US-dominated experience.


#1432

I’m actually surprised by the author’s colloquial American diction. I work in IT so I talk to Indians all the time and they have a very distinct written voice. That guy could be a parangi in Topeka.


#1433

Not a single “do the needful” to be found, it’s true.

Edit: hey wouldn’t it be funny if IGN India outsourced their writing to contractors in Wisconsin or something?


#1434

Well, it would be an example of true globalization I suppose.

I still may pick up the expansion, depending on what other impressions report.


#1435

Lots of changes announced, some of which we knew about before today. Looks like it should all be here by the end of the year.

Of note is the new “Masterwork” rarity, which is somewhere between legendary and exotic. Looks like their goal is to put more interesting perks on those and give people something to grind for in the endgame. Also adding things to buy with shards, etc.


#1436

Definitely not all by end of year, they simply spent the most time on stuff that was due on 12/5 or 12/12. I’m happy about the engram Xur will be selling starting on the 12th that guarantees an undiscovered exotic.


#1437

I guess that’s cool if you don’t already have almost all the exotics. 😁


#1438

Yeah, I still have some that have eluded me. You will be mine, Sweet Business, do you hear me?


#1439

Well, I will reinstall the game for the Heroic Strikes.


#1440

Is that something available to everyone or just to people who buy the expansion?


#1441

Well, I really hope it’s the former.


#1442

I"m guessing they will have the light level / power requirements be Osiris based.


#1443

It would also fit the pattern of what they did in Destiny 1. The top tier Strikes could only be done by people who owned the latest expansions a few weeks after they came out. Before that everyone could do them.
