This week we talk about the Destiny 2 Cooldown Controversy that dominated the talk of Destiny fans this last week. We recap our experience with the Destiny 2 beta talking about our impressions of PvE, PvP, & the Campaign mission. We’ll explore the things we liked and the things we didn’t like in the Destiny 2 beta. The Destiny 2 beta did have SBMM for all forms of PvP, yes even quickplay, & Bungie responded quickly to the frustrations with PvE timers and lack of heavy ammo. They addressed the ammo and grenade side of things, but not the ability timers. Thanks for listening and have a great week.
The Destiny 2 Beta Week Is Here, plus we break down the brand new Sentinel Titan subclass in Destiny 2. It is looking like the most versatile subclass in Destiny 2 so far. We now know mantling is also in Destiny 2, is this a good or bad thing? The new Arcstrider Hunter has some new abilities we have learned about, the new Vostok PvP map revisits a familiar Destiny 1 location. We talk about the new Voidwalker Warlock with the updated doomsday Nova Bomb, plus we tour Endless Vale, the control map we’ll be playing throughout the beta this week. Thanks for listening!
Today we talk about Destiny 2 having a Harder Endgame, the new Locked Loadouts for certain activities, the new progression system that will reward players more, the brand new control gametype, the new maps coming in the Destiny 2 beta which begins next week, The Farm Social Space, & a whole lot more. IGN’s month long coverage of Destiny 2 has brought us new information on Destiny 2 Long Term Progression, and how Luke Smith, Mark Noseworthy, & Bungie are committed to rewarding player’s investment more than Destiny 1. Locked Loadouts for activities is sounding amazing, and will make Destiny 2’s raid and endgame activities even harder to complete. Bungie wants new players for Destiny 2 and wants to unhide the fun, with suggested activities and a heavier emphasis on telling players what is the next step for gearing up their character. The new control PvP gametype has been revealed as has a new map and the brand new Voidwalker. Check out how Nova Bomb will work in Destiny 2. Thanks for listening!
Will No Random Perks on Weapons Ruin Destiny 2 and the loot experience. It sounds like Bungie is pressed for time as Luke Smith says they have no promises regarding making repeat weapon farming rewarding. Is this a good or bad thing for Destiny 2 moving forward? Jump to 16:00 for our discussion on this. We also dive deep into the new Clan features and mandatory clan migrations beginning soon for Destiny 2, all of this in preparation of the new guided games feature. This week is our 3 year Destiny The Show Anniversary, we want to say thank you to all the listeners for the support and amazing 3 years of weekly podcasts! You rock! And have a great week!
