Destiny 2 (PC and other things)
Live stream is in 10 minutes from now. Obviously won't look as good as ARMS last night, but we can give it a chance.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 12:53 PM

Overly dramatic music is playing while a countdown is on the screen. The music is not as good as ARMS.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 12:53 PM

I have a pie in the oven.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 12:59 PM

A second song has kicked in, even more dramatic. But I think they forgot to mute the first song. REEEEEEEEEEMIIIIXXXX

Can also hear people chatting to themselves.

Oh do fuck off.

'The 2 is a reminder'

Surprised it's not a reminder to take a deuce.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:08 PM

PVP is now 4 v 4 for some reason. All of it.

1 Raid at launch (WTF?) and matchmaking for it. Wait, not matchmaking, just LFG. Wait, no-ones actually sure.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:11 PM

First mission is on the citadel as it's blown up. Looks like Destiny alright.


Fignuts 05-18-2017 01:14 PM

lol why did you even make a thread for this?

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:16 PM

The boss has appeared. He has a yellow energy bar that is longer than other energy bars. Other than a double Snickers which is a long energy bar.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:17 PM

I think someone has left the FOV slider at like 5 or something

I legit thought that by getting away from the development issues the first one had and killing off the last gen consoles they could come up with something massively improved learning from the mistakes of the original. Now it looks like a DLC pack, except you start from 0 and they ruined the best part of PVP.

I saw a leak about half hour before the start time and just groaned as it seemed legit, even though it seemed stupid.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:30 PM

Ahaha the YouTubers will cheer anything, but that 4v4 cheer was damn muted.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:32 PM

The fact you don't have to go into orbit to matchmake or shit is the first good thing.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:34 PM

4 new worlds... Like Earth.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:39 PM

Social lead talking about changing peoples lives... Here's some clans.

Fuck me.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:43 PM

"We didn't have matchmaking for Raids because you're all garbage people"

Paraphrasing, but lol.

The Raids matchmaking shit is basically you can join a "guided game" and if the clan has a good rep, they can matchmake with people.

ClockShot 05-18-2017 01:47 PM

Sooooooo, no real matchmaking for raids. We can't just do them solo?

Clans with good rep that need a couple of extra people will post adverts and you can jump in with them. Apparently will make people less toxic.

ClockShot 05-18-2017 01:50 PM

.........that is so stupid.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-18-2017 01:51 PM

"Here's the gameplay trailer!"

With all those other Activision games like Overwatch. It's all the same family.

It works in World of Warcraft, so why not?

The question is, how long will they tolerate you in Raid if you don't know what the hell you're doing before they decide to boot ya.

This idea only causes more problems.

drave 05-18-2017 10:30 PM

My LFR experiences were largely positive. Players that "leet" won't need to pug.

Feel Wow has an advantage of a chat box that I don't have while on XBox 1. WoW is also super casual now.

It will probably work though. Just don't suck.

road doggy dogg 05-18-2017 11:17 PM

For as much shit as it gets, WoW has found that sweet spot of catering to both sides.

The raids (at least in MoP and WoD) were some of the best raids they had ever done. I haven't seen much of Legion's. But the content is challenging for those that want the challenge, while the "training wheels mode" (LFR) is super casual and you can basically drool on your keyboard and see the content. Win-win.

Xbox foregoes chatboxes for voice chat. They have made it easier than any point in the past to both find a group and jump right in to party chat with said group.

Between "clubs" and "Looking for more" feature released in the last update, there are zero excuses. Of COURSE there will be elitists. I would think said public groups LF1M will specify how hardcore of a group they will be in any description. This is not hard and the more of a player base that gets to see this kind of content, the happier the players will be.

I wanna see more of these subclasses. So far these abilities are from D1 subclasses tho there are new moves. The Solar Warlock sword super is wicked.

Similar to the first game, Bungie has no plans to develop a Switch port for the sequel. Also squashed the idea of them reconsidering the decision within a year.

The game's project lead stated its mainly due to the game being online-only and them thinking it wouldn't be a good fit for the system.


Talking with IGN, project lead Mark Noseworthy stated that the developer isn't working on a port and doesn't think that the game would work on Switch. "I think it's pretty unrealistic, given we're an online-only game, right?" he said. "[The Switch is] incredible, I love the console, but in terms of where it's at, I don't want to leave anyone with the possibility of, like, 'It's a thing we'll consider, maybe next year.' There's no plans right now for Switch."

Kalyx triaD 05-19-2017 11:29 PM

Fair enough.

Destiny 1's Grimoire Cards are getting ditched for this game according to Bungie. Same for having parts of the game's lore be locked away from normal ways of playing the game.

Bungie developer Steve Cotton told Forbes' Erik Kain that the studio "[Wants] to put the lore in the game. We want people to be able to find the lore. All the story is told through the Adventures, it's told through the characters in the world, it's told through the campaign and it's told through scannables you find throughout the world."

Good. Those cards were gay.

Bungie claiming issues with the PS4 Pro's CPU is the main reason why the Pro version of the game will be the same 30FPS framerate as other versions.


Speaking to Digital Foundry, Destiny 2 bosses Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy mused on the possibility, but stated that they just couldn't get it to work: "The console, the PS4 Pro is super powerful, but it couldn’t run our game at 60. Our game’s this rich physics simulation where collision of players, networking, etc, and like, it wouldn’t run… [there’s] not enough horsepower there."

While Noseworthy does explain that the GPU is powerful enough to push 4K upscaling, the CPU side is the one that's lacking. He explains, "Destiny’s simulation, like we have more AI, more monsters in an environment with physically simulated vehicles and characters and projectiles, and it’s part of the Destiny magic, like that, like 30 seconds of fun, like coming around a corner and throwing a grenade, popping a guy in the head, and then you add like five, six, seven other players in a public event; that is incredibly intensive for hardware."

Kalyx triaD 05-23-2017 05:55 PM

I expect similar excuses with Xbox Scorpio. All the the specs in the world and I've been saying for years it's the devs who gotta do something about them. Otherwise it's dead tech.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-24-2017 05:31 AM

Nah, AMD CPUs are hamstrung by 10 year old tech and shitty efficiency that has now been rectified with Ryzen, but not in time for Pro/Scorpio. All those consoles have done is boost the GPU to get a higher resolution.

They could tone down elements of the world to get the framerate up, but the CPUs are so hamstrung that just toning down the graphics to prioritise framerate just isn't that possible anymore.

Still, Ryzen is so fucking good that the next iterations should be a lot better.
