Logged in last night for the first time since v2, and boy is my plasteel tired.  So far it's an enormous improvement.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

I've been playing a lot.

It's super fun. There is a ton of content now. I haven't been paying attention to the min/maxer bullshit, so maybe that is why I am enjoying it more.

I think the people who are the most upset are the ones who have been playing a lot since release and now realize what release should have been.

Yea maybe.  I'll admit that I considered being upset about my Armamentarium dropping from 430(?) to 170 armor, and sort of cried a little looking at my Confluence, but just the improvements I saw while fucking around the Tower for 20 minutes looked like they would make up for it all.  I love the new iPhones.

I never played min-maxer style and enjoyed it the entire time. It's now So. Much. Better though.

The cutscenes haven't completely replaced the grimoire stuff and the lore has gone into fucking overdrive. The Books of Sorrow are fucking nuts.

I haven't really read word one of the lore as far as cards go I mostly just go from what the game outright tells me

at least the factions have a fucking ingame explanation for what they want now.

So if you haven't played the game since level 20something and were mostly doing quests (and dailies, etc) as a casual rather than many instances and no raiding at all, is there any point/content to play through?

If you liked the the shooting/combat mechanics of the game then yes. It's still the same game in that aspect so if not you'd probably not care that much for it. But getting to level 40 is much more like playing an MMO now except much faster then what is typical. A lot of quests on top of the story line, gear comes faster and more often. The third subclasses all seem to be pretty fun. Post 40 and leveling your light level is much better then the way is used to be handled. This really is what the game should have shipped like.

Quality of life improvements seem to exist in abundance.  Not having to carry or bank things like ships, bikes, emblems, and paintjobs (unless you want to switch out while in the field) is really great.  Being able to buy the exotics you've already unlocked is nice (but I'll bank my upgraded ones, I think).  No more '3 separate armor crafting resources' is great.  I really wish I had some time to play.

One more question for those with a PS4 and a digital copy - can someone who doesn't "own" TKK on their account play it on someone else's machine where it's installed? I know you can do this with most normal games, but due to the MMO-nature of Destiny, I'm wondering if it's tied to the account only and not the actual PS4 as well as other games are.

My wife and I have a PS4 each, and digital purchases and PSN are on my account, but I play on "her" machine with my account (keeping access to my PS+ and digital games), and she plays on "my" machine, which gives her access to all my digital games and PS+ access. We buy some stuff like this, but for TKK the money savings will be minimal because local retail prices for the physical copies atm are MUCH cheaper than PSN but the de-discing would be great.

It would appear to me that you can, as I was playing on my buddy's PS4 over the weekend.

Do you have the game on your own PSN account?

Do you own the game digitally on your own PSN account? Did you have to make a Destiny account? If no and yes, that's great!

I own the base game on my PS4 at home, from a physical disc.

Excellent. And so just to be absolutely clear (before I spend a hundred bucks), you were able to use your existing Destiny account from the base game and log in using your own account on your mate's PS4 who has a digital copy of TKK and play and access the full expanded set of content?

Yes.

I own a physical copy of base Destiny, and digitally unlocked all DLC up to TKK on my home system. My buddy was in the same situation with his own PS4 and Destiny stuff.

I was at his house, he bought and downloaded TKK using his accounts and played a bit. I later log into his PS4 with my own credentials, then log into Destiny and proceed to run a few TKK missions using my own characters and such.

Ah, so you already had TKK on your account before you logged onto his PS4? I'm trying to see if someone who doesn't have TKK unlocked on their PS4 can log in and use it.

Negative - I didn't buy it until I got home. My first TKK play was on buddy's console.

Anyone still playing this? I saw they had a new overhaul patch recently. I came back for TKK and enjoyed it for awhile but as a casual without interest in 6-hour raids or trying to make groups out of game with preset times and time allocations for higher content I eventually hit the grindwall and lost interest again.

Ehhh, we finished hard mode Oryx, plus challenge mode, so I dropped it.

Still hopping in and out occasionally. Also ran a HM Oryx. didn't do challenge because well, work and wife and sleep. Managed to trick my hunter out in a full set of Taken gear though.
