A Brief Look at how my Character’s Look Influences how I Enjoy Destiny 2

Try as I might, I’ve always struggled with getting into Destiny 2. On the surface, I think the game is great, but I never find myself able to play for very long. The only times I DO play lots of Destiny 2 is when I am playing with friends. Mostly because I’m not very good at it. But one of the major issues I had was that my character looked, well, kinda crap. The reason why I looked like crap was quite simple. I was constantly cycling out better gear. In trying to reach the same level as everyone else,… [Continue Reading]

Things I Really Don’t Like in Destiny 2

This sounds like a stupid name for an article. If you look at my most-played lately, you’ll see that I’ve been playing Destiny 2. More than I’ve been playing Warframe. The only games I’ve played more of lately are Minecraft and Pokemon Go. But you can’t see Steam Stats for those. This article becomes even more weird when you realize I’ve completed content like the Leviathan raid and have a nice collection of exotics. I’ve spent a lot of time playing Destiny 2, yet somehow there’s something about this game that REALLY pisses me off. To the point that I… [Continue Reading]

Destiny 2’s Shaders Just Don’t Seem Right

I like being able to customize my looks in multiplayer games. In a world where there’s more than one ‘chosen one’ and you’re running around in public, you want to look good. After all, you don’t want clones running around, do you? Every game has its own way of allowing you to customize your character, while also making money in the process. Destiny 2 is one such game that allows you to customize your character and how they look. But how it all works in Destiny 2… well, none of it seems right. Well, first off, you’re only customizing armour.… [Continue Reading]

Destiny 2’s DLC System Feels Expensive for What It Is

I’ve always wanted to like Destiny 2. The premise seems awesome. It’s like a cross between Borderlands and Halo with a hint of Warframe. I completely missed the train on Destiny 1, but Destiny 2 having both an open beta and becoming Free to Play meant I could give it a go. But every time I do try and get into Destiny 2, I get frustrated. Half of it is that I find the platforming required to be atrocious. The other half is that, well, I feel like I might as not be playing without DLC. Please note that this… [Continue Reading]

Dark Spooky Forest Week: Destiny 2’s Spooky Halloween Forest

Destiny 2’s Halloween event this year is actually the same Halloween event I briefly played a year before. Turns out, when I started playing again, it had been almost exactly a year since I’d last started. Also turns out that the Halloween event is also pretty much identical. It’s set in a spooky forest full of spooky things and lots and lots of darkness. The haunted forest is also probably the closest thing to Warframe-like gameplay. The concept is simple: Kill, run, fight boss. So, this spooky forest isn’t real. It’s actually part of Osiris’s many simulations. You start in… [Continue Reading]

The Weird Dead State that is Destiny 2’s In-game Communication

Like all modern games, Destiny 2 has an in-game chat function and in-game voice chat. The default settings are push-to-talk, but voice is enabled from the start, as is the chat feature. It’s just a feature that’s always there. After all, parts of Destiny 2 require communication and timing to complete. It’s not just mindless shooting. You need a chat feature, right? In a normal game, of course! In most games, even if you can’t use voice chat, some people will use text chat. If you have a hub area, some people may chat in it. To be fair, most… [Continue Reading]

Literally Three Hours Doing A Raid

For the first time in ages, I had enough people around to have a party of six, including Spectre, our resident person who really really knows his Destiny 2 stuff. Spectre is the sort of person who will cheese a strike and nuke the boss with ease, leaving everyone else in the dust. And that poor bugger willingly decided to lead all five newbies through not one but two raids. I think we all underestimated how long that would take. Basically, it was hell. Okay, the first raid wasn’t so bad. Leviathan, Eater of Worlds isn’t that complicated. It just… [Continue Reading]

A Glance At Destiny 2 From A Newish Player Who Hasn’t Played Recently and Is Completely Lost

I played Destiny 2 a while back. In fact, it was nearly a year ago! I played during the 2019 Halloween event and picked up some cosmetics, including a cool mask, which was equal to my power level back then. Afterwards though, I found Destiny 2 wasn’t really keeping me interested, so I moved on. However, I ended up getting dragged back this year, after the siblings started playing it. Honestly though, I don’t know why, but it all feels like a mess. Punched in the face with announcements. So, as soon as I log in, I’m treated to a… [Continue Reading]

Why Do I Not Enjoy Destiny 2?

I don’t understand this. Destiny 2 isn’t a bad game. At least, it’s not the awful game it started out as. Destiny 2 had a very rocky start initially, however, it slowly managed to pull itself up. The game improved further when Bungie managed to get full control of the game. Right now though, Destiny 2 is in the middle of a massive story-based conflict. There’s massive evil dark pyramids that are threatening to destroy various places, and everyone’s preparing for war. Really, between the lore, the gun play, the setting and the fact it’s free to play (now at… [Continue Reading]

The current state of Destiny 2 – Content Removal Edition

As you might have heard through multiple news sources, Destiny 2 is getting a massive rework on November. One concerning fact is that 4 locations are becoming inaccessible after Beyond Light. Before we get into why is this happening we got to take a look at the bigger picture regarding how many barriers are set up for new players and how much relevant content you can play currently. A quick recap on the story: To address the elephant in the room, those monolithic Pyramids were part of the main plot on the Shadowkeep expansion. One derelict was found buried under… [Continue Reading]
