    Late to the party but hyped for the Shadowkeep release. I will get it on PC for the first time. I'm breaking up with my PlayStation for this.

    Afternoon all. Played the hell out of D1, finished the campaign of D2 but not played any expansions. Just picked up Forsaken. Where should I start?

    From the beginning.

    But nah, just do the story missions. There's quite a bit there and a couple of new areas to unlock through them, the latter of which will keep you busy for ages.

    @SolidSCB

    Roger, thanks man, Iíll start up with the first expansion. Enjoyed the campaign of D2 more than D1 tbh.

    The main missions were pretty good but I played through on my Titan recently to get up to date and the lack of Sparrow makes it utterly tedious.

    Why don't you simply transfer a sparrow from another character?

    Three seasons later, I still say the biggest problem in Destiny 2 is the way they manage daily bounties. It's annoying that I need to complete a bounty in 24 hours or lose all progress on it. Even worse when weekly bounties require completions of daily bounties. It has forced me to play more than I would want to, in several occasions.

    They should change them to be like D1 again: no time limit, but you couldn't get the same bounty twice until you finished the one already in progress.

    That is indeed annoying. At least you only have to complete them within 24 hours, but can wait to redeem them indefinitely. I simply put off acquiring the weekly bounties that require you to complete daily bounties until I have enough daily bounties.

    I only tend to pick up daily bounties if it is part of a requirement of a weekly bounty/bounties, quest or Ikora for powerful gear. Yeah it sucks that bounties now have a time limit. D1 wasn't like that at all when it launched.

    Is there even a point to the MIDA combo anymore? It made sense before Forsaken, when you could only have two primary weapons, so a long range scout rifle and a short range submachine gun was a good choice. But now, I can't imagine sacrificing a special weapon for one of the mini-tools.

    I guess it could still be good in the crucible, but high damage scout rifle seem to be favored now. Actually, pulse rifles make scout rifles irrelevant, but nevermind that for now.

    Please, please don't tell me it displayed as locked simply because I didn't have one until the reward at the end and I could have just transferred one over 🤦‍♂️

    This is my Half Life hovercraft moment, isn't it?

    Just played through the Red War campaign for the first time. Really good fun. Much better than the campaign in D1.

    I find some of the graphics really odd in this though. Sometimes they look amazing, and other areas and assets don't seem as good as Destiny 1.

    If I'm correct the maintenance is something to do with the cross save feature for when Shadowkeep arrives.

    Keep meaning to ask - is the awful load time for the "pause" menus just for me, or does everyone get that? Seems to take ages to pull up the maps/gear screens.

    It seems a lot worse with an HDD compared to an SSD (on consoles at least). But from what I've heard, yeah, it's a bit annoying.

    No trouble for me here but I noticed many more framerate drops during heavy action lately. However, I could also just chalk that up to the insane heat. The GPU must be struggling - it's one of those reference cards with horrible coolers (last time I buy one of those).

    I must admit also that I haven't noticed any real jump in speed when I switched the game over to the SSD. Even back on the HDD it was still fairly immediate, and my 8 years old HDD must pretty slow compared to the modern average.

    So, the Moments of Triumph and Solstice of Heroes.

    Grindy as usual, I must admit, but seems doable. Calus boons bounties can be annoying though (since you cannot die while completing them). And the new EAZ activity seems like Bungie's take on wide arena PvE.

    The plus side is that you get a glimpse of the new armor system if you can masterwork the Solstice gear. Shouldn't take too long... hopefully.

    I swear bungie have no ideas, well no decent ones. I recently got the season pass because it's cheap and a friend's still play.

    My god everything new is dull as fuck and the worst of the worst type grind. Nothing exciting just the most boring ideas on how to make players play longer.

    I've been off for eight months and enjoyed lots of incredible games with incredible ideas. Destiny has good gun play. Nearly everything else is shit. Zzzz.

    I honestly haven't looked back since picking up Forsaken earlier this year. I'm still catching up with the season pass and have about 2 pages of pursuits, a lot of which are exotic bounties, to chase. This is how it should have launched really.

    We just finished Last Wish the other night. Hands down the best raid since Vault of Glass. Really looking forward to doing the other 2 and getting most of it boxed off before Shadowkeep.

    Maybe I'd have felt differently if I'd been keeping up to date. I think Gambit is pretty naff and probably would have been a bit disappointed waiting for new content and then being given that, but as it is it's just a little extra to dip into for the odd bounty or whatever, just like Crucible always has been.

    Still catching up as well after picking up Forsaken about two weeks ago, it still has the best gunplay of any FPS on the market currently which I think is what keeps me playing.

    Me and a few friends are planning on doing the raids this week and I'll be super happy if any of them get close to how good VoG was.

    Truthfully I think Last Wish is actually equal to or better than VoG. VoG will always be special and my personal favourite, but Last Wish mechanically is probably the best co-op activity I've ever played.

    Got to the second stage of armor refreshing (that took a lot of playing today). As expected, it's grindier than the first stage. I also took a glance at the masterworking objectives and they seem kinda annoying... but I guess just like last year, I really only need to master one piece, not the whole set. So whatever.

    Also, I have to say this: they should put the item lore in the preview window again.

    By the way, all these new larger maps are getting heavy. When jumping around on top of the buildings in the EAZ, my framerate plummets to the 40s...

    my problem with the dlc stuff is it's overly mp focused, i managed to get a lot of enjoyment from the base game lone wolfing it, finally tried the forge stuff and it is timed team-up bullshit. and making a dlc based around gambit? fuck off, bungie.
