I admit, this made me laugh.

I thought the whole point of the character transfer was to do it before Destiny 2 was taken off Battle.net?

They're not gonna take away the game from everyone who bought it and then didn't keep up with it and missed that it moved to Steam.

Destiny series will always be weird to me. Launch a bad game with almost no content, and players still reward it by spending even more money for content that should have been there at launch.

This game and warframe have nothing in common aside from SPACE, and those gifs look nothing like what you can do in Warframe.
I honestly don't know why people insist on constantly drawing that comparison.

They're both loot shooters where you use abilities in addition to guns. Those super gifs are flashy in a way that some Warframe abilities are and some of them pull out to third person, making them look more like Warframe.

Sure, they're different games, but it's not like they have absolutely nothing in common.

Everyone wishes vanilla D1 and vanilla D2 had been better. If you're going to boycott its expansions as a Lesson to bungie that's fine, but most people would rather just play the fun game

They're both shlooters, and that is about the extent of their similarities.

If they were any more alike, people would've dropped destiny long ago at the thought of having to build each and every weapon and character.
You see the people that post in all the destiny threads, do you really think all of them have the patience to wait 72+ hours for their Sleeper and Hunter to build?

I dismantled a truly amazing number of Erentils trying to get a stupid comedy roll (torch+projection+firmly planted+rangefinder).

Never did get it, probably for the best.

I did eventually get a god roll trust, I think I averaged two chest opens per day all month just for trust.

I still have really no idea of what is coming in Shadowkeep other than finishing moves and a Moon zone but I went ahead and preordered it anyway.

I mean I don't know anything about databases, on account of how hard they are, but yeah, seems the characters and such are stored on bungie's servers, not blizzards (or sony's or microsofts). it's the entire basis of how cross-save can work

just because the game is taken off blizz launcher, doesn't mean the characters are taken off bungie.net

I think that Forsaken-era Destiny 2 is one of the best-looking/best-playing games of all time and though I wish it were a little less grindy/had a little less FOMO at times, Bungie is near the top of my list of developers whose games I will buy just about sight unseen.

I just wish they had handled the initial launch better because I had a few RL PC gamer friends that I talked into getting D2 at launch and they refuse to give the game another chance no matter how much I try to convince them that the game's good/great now. Oh well, that's what HOTDOG and the PC LFG discord are for!

Yeah, the FOMO thing is hard to deal with, but that's how many things work today. It's all over. I missed out on the reverse Reese cups with more peanut butter than chocolate. I missed out when Dunkaroos did their limited edition return and Twix did their cookies n creme version. I missed it. Life is tough. None of it really matters, though.

The moral high ground in gaming is dumb. Just play games and let it ride.

It's consistently gorgeous. Still.

If there's anyone on the fence about the free version, I'd say it's worth jumping in just to bum around on pretty scifi landscapes.

right in the middle of one of the titan story missions the action just stops while you proceed through a series of Extremely Pretty Hallways and it's honestly one of my favourite moments in the entire game

I haven't played since Warmind, do people do old raids? If I were to get back into Destiny and play with goons, should I also be getting Forsaken or can I just skip it?

Old raids will be very popular once the initial rush wears off. They drop gear worth getting in the post armor 2.0 world, so I personally will run a few and I expect others to do so as well.

Btw nerds join the Serious Overchill discord if you want into clans that aren't HOTDOG, they process requests in there.
