Curse of Osiris drops in two weeks too, so there may be reason to keep playing.

We'll see.

It looks like Bungie isn't above treating it's players like shit just like everyone else does.  They were purposefully reducing xp gains for some activities after reaching max level when players were grinding out Bright Engram xp.  They've changed it now only because they got caught.  Fuck these guys.

So, obviously with all the experience gains uproar, and possibly dwindling (or lower than expected) populations, they decided they needed to do something drastic.. which means you now can try this for FREE with no limitation of time (but capped at level 7) on all 3 platforms!!

Additional Free Trial inclusions :
Campaign Mission on EDZ & Titan
Adventure and Explore two full worlds
PvP Multiplayer: Crucible Quickplay Playlist
Gameplay carries over to full game with purchase
Clan Functionality

Aaaaaand downloading  awesome, for real

They've also cancelled doing a live stream this week that was supposed to promo the first DLC to instead make way for a (live?) blog from the Bungie devs in an effort to clear the air about all the drama as of late.

Having fun with the trial. From a lore point, it would have been nice if they had spent a bit more time bringing new players to the series up-to-speed on the events of D1, but then I'm preaching to the wrong audience here on that point  why so serious?

Is there an easy way to ensure I've picked up all potential loot/ammo from a fight? I feel like I'm missing out on stuff after a firefight jumping and shooting everywhere.

Only loot you'll get to drop are engrams - purple ones will need an extra step. Otherwise, it doesn't matter much if you miss one or one falls off the map, those will all be sent to the postal droid on the Farm/Wall.

Ah ok, I get it. Thanks :)

Follow-up on drama, Bungie pushed the pledged blog, detailing changes with dates.

https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/46504

tl;dr:
- You fuckers win, we'll let you random God-roll talents and stats on legendary gear, but exotics stay stat-locked.
- We tried to be funny with XP, but we failed at coding it correctly and got caught. Mea culpa.
- We hear you on balance stuffs. We'll try and talk more with you about it and fix it in December.

Even at that price I don't know if I'm going to pull the trigger. Nothing I've read or seen seems like a substantial improvement over D1 besides "can be played with keyboard and mouse."

Save your money.  Two of my friends were diehard Destiny 1 players that swore they would be playing Destiny 2 for the next 6 months.  Both of them quit after 3 weeks.

Finished the trial content. Yeah, I'm glad I saved my $60. Assuming they pull through on what they posted in the blog, I could see picking this up with the year 1 content bundled in next year. But not now.

I pulled the trigger at $26.  Demo was fun enough to warrant that. 

Never would have gone in at $60.

Friend of mine gifted this to me when it was on sale this week, so I'm playing it. The shooty parts are good, but I can understand the complaints much more clearly now.

Aside from the new raid, the first DLC has apparently been received as well as a turd in the swimming pool would be. This video sums up it up well, and makes one wonder why Mercury didn't ship with the base game.

SkillUp, who did the magnificent 40 minute video review of all of Destiny 1, has officially thrown in the towel.

Each new planet will cost you another $30. That's why... it's the new hotness. $60 to get started and an additional $30 to keep up with the Jones'

Well, late to the party. Just completed the campaign.

I skipped reading the complains here to go in with an open mind.  Playing with a friend, just finishend the campaign.

Not sure if there is enough "meat" for longterm interest, but so far it's good.

It's not a bad game.  It's just not a vast improvement over Destiny and it's certainly not worth the price they are charging.

WAY more hype than value.

If there were no history behind it, it would be a good game. Unfortunately, there's Age of Triumph Destiny and this is a step backward from that.

Thankfully bought it for $30 and already got my worth back just with the "dress up your character" gameplay part.

Although that turned out more like > 300 different shaders and colours > end up going for for wood-camouflage & black-trenchcoat tacti-cool look anyway.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Snarky comments by Mr. Snarky F13 aside, yes people still play the game. I do enjoy the game and spend quite a lot of time in it at the moment. The recent 1.1.4 changes have helped as well, gameplay feels more crisp.

Six-on-six Iron Banner feels a tad crowded on maps tuned for four-on-four. I'll still take the crowding over the bullshit esports model they were trying to push.

The game is definitely faster, though TTK is still a tad long. I'm not rushing back into this but I'll definitely pop back in when Warmind drops to see what that feels like.

jesus, just noticed weeks later that autocorrect changed "warmind" to "warming".

That's odd, it's not on Steam.  Are they giving out Battle.net codes? So far everything in the bundle has been either on Steam or just a DRM free direct download as far as I know.  Weird.  I guess I'll find out in a month.
