booted this up this morning prior to heading out for work.  You can see a lot Assassin Creed/Batman in this game.  I've already took down two captains I think just by chance as they seem to wander a lot. 

Anyway, I am happy with the purchase

Same here, minus the taking down two captains.  I'm most interested in playing this as a quasi-stealth game, although I'm thinking this will be very difficult to do considering the amount of enemies and I'm guessing it wasn't designed to be played that way.  At any rate, I'll try and see how successful I can be playing that way if I focus on taking abilities that are geared toward a stealth-style gameplay.  I seem to want every game to be Splinter Cell, even if it isn't designed to be.   icon_neutral

I listen to TotalBiscuit podcast this morning and he had a review build and he indicated that some mission require stealth as a condition, so this should please you.  Also with perks you might be able to make this happen.  He stressed that this a heavy focused combat game and if you don't like that mechanic you might want to hold off on purchasing

I will admit I'm losing some of my passion for playing especially since my gearing has plateaued at 25.

Are you not interested in levelling up the other two classes?  I'm a few levels below you and still happy with my progression rate, but if I stall out enough to get grumpy with my Hunter I'm really looking forward to seeing how Titan and Warlock play.  As much as Bladedancer really clicks with me, it's hard to not also be jealous of some of the feats I see the other classes pull off in PvP.

Honestly, I'm only logging in to play with you guys, but not seeing positive movement for my Warlock just irks me.   Anyway, I like the game just wish loot dropped more frequently like D3

PSA: Apparently you can reroll your queen missions as much as you want by returning to orbit.  If you want to cheese them, reroll until you're given that easy early Restoration mission on earth.

Hopefully, I can get a group for some today..

Joystiq does award half stars, so it's more nuanced than you think. On the other hand, I agree that Metacritic is a blight on the industry. If it were me making something like that, I'd turn it into something like Rotten Tomatoes. Either you give a game a thumbs up, or you give it a thumbs down. Final score is the percentage of total votes that are thumbs up. The current review systems are garbage anyway, especially since the gaming press can't agree on a single scale. Even a 1-10 scale means different things for each publication, and even between reviewers in the same publication. It's a mess, and games with a niche audience suffer the most for it.

This whole gamersgate issue is making me re-evaluate my reliance on reviews by journalist and sights like metacritic.   
Not to turn this into a Gamersgate thread, but have you read past the hype? I thought the same way, but then did research and found out there was nothing to the original claim.

Hype ..  Yes, but there is still an issue nonetheless and lets not go there here, please.

Oddly enough, i didn't.  I did get a ! on the Strike Playlist showing Level 24, though.  Anway, at least I know where it is.  I'm still confused why forgeforsaken has a 5th space for an icon on the map and I do not.  The icons are Queen, Crucible, Weekly Strike and Daily Story (can't remember the order) and then what is the other?
.

Queen's Wrath Bounty.    Just turn in one of her bounties and it will unlock Oh that should be Nightfall the 5th one
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 23, 2014, 11:59:20 AM
so the Queen's bounites equals

Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Handcannon
Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Scout Riflt
Collect items from Fallen
Run two strikes and kill specific mobs

So, after all this is done a special mission is supposed to open?

So the black market dude allowed you to buy a strange coin with glimmer this morning. Then exploiters, as exploiters will do, realized if you switched characters you could get another one. Then create and delete characters if you have a slot available and you can do it over and over and over...

You can no longer buy a strange coin from the black market dude.

LOL...  Should have been tested before rolling out.  I guess roll backs are incoming

So I hit 15 and have unlocked the subclass.

I do I now have to unlock everything again for the new class? Is the idea that I play through this again with the same character t ype but with different abilities or is the unlocking expedited because I'm already 15?

Yes, once you unlock the suib-class you need to level it up.  One thing to increase it is only equip when you turn in quest and bounties.   Remember XP goes to your currently equipped gear and this includes your spec

btw,  once you unlock the sub class all other subclasses are unlocked.  So you can start a new toon and select a different subclass

Little bar at the bottom of the gear icon.. also check the details to see the unlocks

here's a tip not sure if it was mention but before turning in bounties equip any gear you want to level.  Don't give XP to gear that is fully leveled that your don't plan on keeping

Anyone have a dummies guide to all the daily/weekly game chores I should be doing?  

  • I should be getting 100 marks every week before the cap resets on Tuesday
  • I should be doing a "daily heroic?"  What's that, the strike mission?
  • There's also a "weekly heroic?"
  • Raids are different than the strike missions, and not yet in the game?  Are they going to have time limits?
  • Other stuff?

Try to clear all your daily bounties.  Consider them like dailies in WoW
Daily Heroic is a story mission pushed up to level 20+.  Can be done solo or with a fireteam.   I suggest finding a FT.  
Daily Strike Mission  is for a fireteam.  If you click it you will be placed in a group
Daily Crucible is just a rotating PvP game type
There is a Weekly Strike that gives 3 strange coins (vendor only appears on Friday and Saturday.  He was gone on Sunday)
Vault of Glass just unlocked today and is a Raid.  Light level 26 minimum

Seriously, just jump into party chat with us and we'll set you straight and you will normally find a group do some runs

I think it will be interesting to see if people are playing this in 2 months.  Everyone will be level 20+ so I think it will be up to Bungie to keep creating reasons to load the game back up.


They have to add content quickly if they want to treat this like a MMO

The Samaritan Samuel L. Jackson movie.  The plot twist is very similiar to another movie, but no less shocking.  I didn't see it coming which is a change for me

Nymph()manic Vol.1 & 2   Actually did a google search on this before watching and I am glad I did.  Very good movie about a women dealing with her addiction and the consequences it has on her life .

I've been ignoring story missions since circa level 7, and last night I tried one scaled to level 20 (the one with the sword).  The first 90% of the mission was not scaled, so every enemy was still level 8 or so.  It wasn't until the very end that the enemies finally got bumped up to 20, right when I got to the no-respawn warning.  Even with the enemies at 20, the difficulty level seemed on the easy side.  Maybe it was because I had so many more abilities and equipment perks at 20 than you'd expect to have at 7-8?

I think the reason the beginning part is 7-8 is you are thrown into the greater wrld with other players.  It seems like once you get to the part where you can't respawn, that is where it becomes instanced and I'm guessing that is where the levels of the monster went up to 20.

This is correct.  Once you hit the "Dark Zone" mobs will spawn at your level

PvP is much better on an organized team.  I'm a very poor pvper (not my cup of tea) BUT I have tons of fun with Hark, Teggy, Mikagami, Otterchaos/Zinfin and the rest when we team up.   Game is so much better when you have your mates calling out targets and giving battlefields updates
