Warmind - does anybody care anymore?
« on: May 14, 2018, 10:19:49 am »
So as my interest in Destiny 2 came to an abrupt end and nosedived off a cliff around the time of Curse of Osiris, I didn't even notice that Warmind had been released. I saw some advert tile on Xbox over the weekend, and also noticed that a few people on my friends list were playing Destiny over the weekend.

So as someone who foolishly bought the deluxe/gold/stupidly optimistic edition is it worth loading up and playing?

I see a mixed reception critically (no real surprise there), but are there any Oldg enjoying playing it?  ..or even just playing it?

I was adamant i wouldnt be turning it on due to my (well documented) dissapointment with all things destiny these days.

After the cries for help from a friend at the weekend i reluctantly updated and jumped in to help them out with the story.

I enjoyed it a tiny bit but thats just from the fact Destiny was good fun to play and i hadnt played it for months BUT i wouldnt recommend it as it just seemed lke more of the same drivvle.

The story annoyed me with its 'must appeal to teenagers' storyline (i can only compare it to the phantom menace :( ) and we got to the end battle in under 2 hours so for me thats nowhere near the length i'd expect for a DLC. i cant comment on the Boss battle as i wasnt a high enough level to enter it.

There are new weapons and armour which just seem like papering over the cracks of a broken game but from what i saw and how i felt playing it, Bungie would have to do something groundbreaking to draw me back into Destiny again...... Fool me once....

After watching the video below (a trusted opinion), I'm in no rush. I think this YouTuber gives a mature perspective.

I'll defo play through the story, but I have no appetite for the rest of it, as things stand

Cheers guys, thanks for the video Orbs. :)

"If you were foolish enough, like I was, to buy the Gold Edition of the game, it's my view that it's not worth logging on to experience this new content" - That's a brutally honest opinion from a Destiny YouTuber.

As a big fan of D1 (Dets made me get into it!) I was really looking forward to D2, but the Gold price tag put me off. My thought being that I may more in the long run if I bought all the DLC individually, at least I'm spreading that cost over a longer time. So cost made me just get the vanilla version.
The 1st DLC was a joke, so glad I didn't but it.
I was encouraged that I could just but the 2nd DLC without the 1st, but having seen the vid, I'm not sure I'm going to bother.

For me, Destiny was about achieving things with your friends, especially the raids. We've almost done the D2 raid, but fail due to lack of back players since we all have real lives. This also shows me that there are less and less people playing D2.
The 2nd DLC appears to show a very short campaign and then A LOT (many times a week, every week) of grind to get a better light level and frankly I can't be bothered and have other, better, games to play.

It does make me think about season passes. I'm struggling to think of a season pass where us giving our hard earned money for future DLC that we haven't seen has actually worked out....

Witcher 3 is probably the only season pass I can think of that was worth it, and although it gave a huge amount of extra content I could have just waited for the game of the year edition.  ::)

I'm done with Gold/Deluxe/Optimistic editions. I should have learned after The Division, but as a big fan of D1 I was foolish again. Now again, like The Division, I've lost so much interest in the game that I probably won't even play part of the Gold edition that I payed for at launch.

If it wasn't for Detski and Voodoo and other OldG, I wouldn't have got into D1. I then bought D2 (with expansion pass)...... because I enjoyed D1, besides, they got their shit together after D1: the Taken King, what could possibly go wrong?  :-[

Me too, Not only will I not be buying any season passes in the foreseeable future, I won't even be pre-ordering. I've been bitten too much by the hype-machines

Exactly this mate.

I have just started the Division again though since the 4K patch, i forgot how good that game actually is before end game, when you dont have to worry about gear score etc.
L4 green weapons all the way lol

After the disaster of D1 at launch I would have advised anybody not to buy anything other than the standard edition.  The problem most of you came to D1 after it's year 1 fix. I'm not even sure if D2 will make it that far.

I'll have a run through it when I can find a bit of time seeing as I got the Expansion pass but not in any rush
