The Guided Gaming thing looks less like full-on LFR as it is "we're an established group that needs a sixth," so it probably won't dumb down/eliminate mechanics like LFR does in other games. It basically seems to be catering to "I'm good enough to raid but need a group right now" more than "I'm a dumb gently caress who wants to queue into coordination-based encounters with 5 other people who can't communicate with me."

Seems like a decent compromise, especially if they incentivize picking people up through it.

I love the obsession with hidden secrets people have online. Not just about Destiny but in general but in this case yes about Destiny.

Has Destiny ever had a real hidden secret thing? When was the last time anything had some secret ARG thing? Seems like forever.

Figuring out the outbreak prime thing involved ARG stuff iirc

Edit: specifically figuring out the canister puzzle

My point is that it wasn't fun to play the old content. You just steamroll it. And I know about infusion, but raising the level cap still nullified a lot of time and effort people put in to get their gear. I really want to know how they're addressing that.

If they hadn't, people would have used nothing but fatebringer/black hammer/gjallarhorn for three years and you'd be complaining they did nothing to incentivize using new weapons.

Nah, player created names are always the best.

Like "a-hole" to describe that broken hole in the wall next to A on rusted lands.

Or butthole on dungeons.

TF2 had a map with callouts of "house" and "poo poo house" which I thought were very accurate

They don't even know what the Darkness is.

Luke Smith posted:

We didn’t know what it was, and we, for a period, we chose [that] we’re going to lump all the races [in together], and you see this in the tooltips in the game. “Minions of the darkness.” And we had taken all the races and said, “Ah, they’ll just be The Darkness.” But that’s not what the IP deserves. It’s like, literally not.

I'll be honest, the story was entirely unimportant to my enjoyment of destiny. The moment to moment gameplay and doing strikes/raids with friends were what kept me interested. I don't even remember who Mara Sov was. The queen of the purple people or something.

Schizotek posted:

People who think a fourth element type would be based off the traditional "earth-wind-fire" poo poo or "the darkness" are dumb. The 3 current elements are based off three of the four fundamental interactions of matter. Void is gravity, Arc is electromagnetic, and Solar is the strong interraction. That leaves the weak interraction responsible for radioactive decay. Assuming they ever add a third element, it'll be based on radiation and will probably be green glowy poo poo.

I'm sure they put that much thought into it.

My theory is they'll start doing weapon perks as prizes so like you get:

Luck In The Chamber - works on hand cannons, sniper rifles

As a random loot reward and you can replace a perk from the regular tree with it. Only way I see them keeping the carrot on the stick.

They'll be like attachments, you can only have one on a gun, using it binds it to the gun.

Welp, I'm stuck in the first mission. Right after the part where you help Zavala. I ran to the speaker, and Ikora never showed up :/ so after thirty seconds I went forward, then Ikora starts doing her dialog. Apparently there are enemies I have to kill before I walk through the doorway. The door is now closed and I'm on the other side, where the boss fight is supposed to happen with no way to trigger the fight. Gg Bungie

Feels kind of average, like an expansion pack. Also, for some reason, the Scout rifle feels very weak in PvE. It's an odd feeling.

I didn't enter Destiny until Taken King and maybe I'll do the same here.
