You get the figure when you pre-order. My little guy is now sitting in between Aloy and Kratos on my shelf.

And of course, this is the game that they bring the RZ back for -- the only one I don't buy at Best Buy. :grumble:

Curious as to see how this will carry over to PC or if there will be any cross playing.

Pre-ordered for ps4 from gamestop. I wanted that Cayde-6 figure, may cancel and go digital

Pre-ordered the LE from Gamestop and got the figure. It's also nice that they put the beta code on the receipt.

I also picked up Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 while I was there. I totally forgot they were carrying the exclusive physical version.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
I'm sure I'll get it but the timing with Red Dead Redemption 2 scheduled a month later is going jam my gaming schedule....

Still want to hear about a lot of the details involving the classes, abilities and weapons. Still think Bungie ought and should look at adding more characters in the mix. I would even like to see the ability to use "AI Guardians" in solo play. If anything act as distractions and bullet/melee sponges. And of course the collecting resources you do need, then don't need and either cannot get rid of or use it for more stuff that you have plenty of.

But getting kicked and driven out of their city and world starting out new seems to be a good idea...almost a page out of Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. And maybe have more storyline and campaigns tied directly to the characters or leaders themselves...like Clyde-6 and his history....like playing him when he started out.

I love how everyone leaves off the Xbox one - even on sites like Amazon, you have to specifically search for the xbox one version :lol: WTF?

I'm going for the XBox One version, as that's the console I have.

I played Destiny nearly non-stop for a full year, and bought two extra XBox 360s so family could all play together in the same room. I've since sold all them and just have the one XBox One, but man, I love this game.

I'll buy "2" without hesitation.

Just a reminder that the Destiny 2 gameplay reveal will be streaming on Twitch today at 1pm ET.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
Also, anyone up in the air between the One and PS version should strongly consider PS4. We have a well established group here that make the game so much more enjoyable.

I'm at work, so I won't be watching it live. I'm really curious to see what they've improved on, so I'll be checking in later.

Man, I didn't realize they were doing this whole thing in L.A. Didn't realize this was going to be this big of a deal.

Me007gold 05-18-17 11:46 AM

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
15 minutes or so. Excited to see whats in store. Still up in the air about my pre order though

TheKing 05-18-17 11:49 AM

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
Wow, Lance Reddick is in the house. Maybe they got Fillion there too?

Reddick plays the gane, but has only done 1 raid. Must be weird for him to talk to Zavala in the tower...

Welcome to Battle.net, PC players :D

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
Yaaaa had a feeling this was gonna be Destiny 1.5 and from what they've shown it seems like it is

Me007gold 05-18-17 01:21 PM

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
It was nice to finally see what was behind those doors by the speaker. It matches the concect art in the "Art of Destiny" book just about perfectly

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
I'm in!

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
OK, having watched the whole reveal, I found it to be hit or miss.

Most of the changes are great and some are long overdue. Clan integration or being able to go from one location to another without going to orbit are good. More to do on patrol is maybe the most exciting thing I heard.

On the other end, I think they went in the wrong direction with Crucible completely. Making every game mode 4 Vs. 4 just sounds horrible. They should have went in the other direction and expanded to 8 Vs 8. So now it will be even less accessible to solo players.

It was very cool to finally see what's behind that big door in North Tower after all this time. Too bad itr's only as the Tower is crumbling. I figured the first mission would be the "escape from the tower" type thing.

Overall, I wasn't wowed by anything.

It looks like one of the crucible maps is set in the new tower area.

I'm disappointed as well with the 4v4. Seems strange to reduce the size of matches. If anything, you'd think they'd want to increase it to show off the power of the new hardware.

The new sub-classes seem cool, especially for the warlock. The one for the hunter basically looks like it plays exactly like the Bladedancer. Wonder if they will replace the existing subclasses, or act as a 4th.

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
I watched a couple clips of the interviews and they kept mentioning "a fresh start" for players, new and old. Wasn't the whole point of the Destiny that it was supposed to be a continued and expanding universe over 10 years?

slop101 05-18-17 05:35 PM

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
So do I delete the first Destiny when this comes out?

Battle.net launcher... interesting. I can't wait for the PC version.

K&AJones 05-19-17 08:59 AM

Re: Destiny 2 - 9/8/17 (PS4,XB1,PC)
I really wish Bungie would put new characters in the mix. This is a perfect opportunity to do so with this so-called Fresh Start storyline. There are plenty of games out there that have a constant flow of expanding the character universe yet Bungie is stuck on three...

I never played Crucible a lot but when IB came around I played all three characters and felt like I did decent. But I wonder what IB will be like in Destiny 2 or will it still be there?
