I’m waiting for Anthem too, but probably play both and see which one is better. Customisable armor suits, rocket launchers or sneaky sniper frame, sounds grea to me .
Finished Destiny yesterday, ok strictly today 5 am,… nothing that Coffee couldn’t cure.
I have to admit I’m a bit dissapointed. The gameplay is solid, lots to do and explore but the story… . The villain is the least threatening I ever encountered. They never let me experience why I should be scared of him, built him up with actual gameplay like they did in Mass Effect for example. They talk a lot, but the dialoges are kinda meh, like they are towarded to me rather then they have a real conversation. Who talks like this, beside Hollywood movies? His Sun Killing Beam comes out of nowhere, just like lots of other story elements. It feels very convoluted and constructed and not natural. The original Halo had a good story with some twists in it, and a great villain but this?I simply can’t take Naked mole-rats in oversized armor serious.
It seem like the story is full of plot holes too. For example when you get to the final mission and run through the city it seems like they didn’t notice what they did to the Traveller. Seriously? That thing is the size of a small moon, we have spies there and the didn’t tell you that shit?
They had so many years to deliver a convincing story, but what they ended up with feels rushed. I simply don’t understand how this could be any better story wise then Destiny 1, I really hope the DLC make things clearer. Maybe we explore the Traveller more, go into more depth what its origins are, thats the story I hoped for, but it seems no one in this universe cares about the origin of a mini moon which grants super powers…
On the other side, as I’ve said, I played all night. The final missions (last 4 or so) really hook you in with their dynamics, but in total nothing real blew me away gameplay wise. Its solid but nothing spectacular.
Right now I will gear up and do lots of side activites, the gunplay is really good. My hunters melee ability is awesome but I feel like late game not as useful for boss encounters!? I also have to unlock the last specialisation, if I remember right thats a bow with CC capabilities?! CAN"T FUCKING WAIT.
Side question, anyone set up a Guild yet in Destiny? If yes, Is that independent of the one I got invited to via Battle.net?
