    Destiny is working out for me. I only just bought forsaken and there's so much to do now!

    i found there was a ton "to do" but i kept scratching things off my list, not because i completed them, but because it felt like a complete waste of time trying to complete them

    So what are all the people that rush to the last page supposed to do in the meantime?

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    Destiny has great gameplay. Its a fun. But in the end it is a routine grind of the same stuff over and over and over again.

    Same with the Division/Division 2.

    And other similar game.

    And in a weird way it feels like more of a grind than more traditional MMOs.

    That seems fair. I just like seeing all the crazy lore shit and whatnot so I'm down for doing quests for pointless guns just to see the dialogue and get fun tidbits of lore.

    The new expansion looks interesting from a lore standpoint but seriously is Savathun just taking her sweet as time showing up or what?

    Also is the dreaming city still doing that time loop thing I heard about?

    Now is probably a great time to get into Destiny 2.

    I think Chanus's and my and a lot others apathy is because we played it to death at launch and through an expansion or two.

    i'm not sure, but the way that worked was each week is a new set of things, there's a three-week cycle and a six-week cycle that run at the same time (so two three-week cycles before everything is reset)

    and if you miss something in the six week cycle you have to wait six weeks to be able to do it again

    honestly as much as i love the gameplay as far as shooting mans, i am completely disgusted with what they turned that game into in the end of year one and into forsaken and black armory

    Destiny 2, to me, actually feels like a great shooter. Mooks have a reasonable TTK, bosses are bosses.

    I never got into the Division even though that aesthetic is my jam because the bullet sponging was rough

    I played the fuck out of Destiny 2 at launch and played a bunch of Osiris and Warmind and then stopped playing until a few days ago when I picked up the annual pass+forsaken for 40 bucks. I had definitely felt the grind hard with escalation protocols in warmind but now it feels like I have so many different fun things to do and work on that aren't just failing escalation protocols I'm really digging it again. Also Gambit is pretty fun.

    And I had forgotten how crazy fun the lore is in that game, o chat thread mine.

    I've been playing Outer Wilds after the chat hype. The 15 dollar price made it hard to say no too.

    I think I know what is going on with the time limit now, but not with the time loop exactly.

    People keep referring to puzzles, but I don't think I've seen much that qualifies as a puzzle. It's more a metroidvania. Except the only thing you get is knowledge.

    It's Frog Fractions or Candy Box but in space.

    I only touched Destiny 1 for like 8 seconds but Division's bullet sponge stuff makes me bored. I feel the same way about skyrim on normal difficulty. Shit just takes an awful long time to kill people. Even on easy some of the later bosses still have a large pool of health.

    Game as a service and no actual gameplay is a concern

    I'm also worried that they jumped in with multiple heroes rather than going for single-hero games with greater individual character depth. Designing a good action game with one character is very hard, let alone five plus multiple DLC characters.

    But if I can kick a guy through a wall, I'm in.
