I'm thinking back to what it would be like if I had to choose between carrying a shotgun or a rocket launcher during a Crota run.  Me no like.

Totally. I'm really pissed about that. Sniping the boomers on the ledges and then switching to rockets to DPS Crota wouldn't be possible with the new setup.

Maybe I'd buy an excuse related to team diversity, but the encounters would have to accommodate that.  I'd still have to figure out if I was Shotgun Dude or Icebreaker Lady.

Has anyone else been seeing that you can swap between your console of choice, and PC, seemingly at will? So, for instance, you can do most of the content on PC, then swap over to PS4 for raids if most of your friends are on that platform.

At least, that's what I'm being told. I'm still trying to decide if essentially buying the game twice would really be worthwhile in order to play on both platforms.

Seems like a lot of work to make that happen. For all that effort, you think they'd just let console and PC co-exist, a la FFXIV.

It's a little bit different for shooters.  M&K is vastly superior to a controller.  They'd have to either place some kind of handicap on M&K players or give an advantage for controllers to make things fair in pvp.  I can't think of a shooter game that allows cross platform play.  The only one that comes to mind was that shitty Shadowrun game, and that didn't work out very well.

Or they could just allow consoles, which are essentially homogenized PCs these days, to be able to plug in a mouse and keyboard.

At least that's what I'd do. Not my fault scrubs don't want to learn to use a M&K; I've baked the support in. Get gud  why so serious?

I would play my PS4 so much more if they allowed that. The funny thing is, at least on PS3, you can plug a keyboard in to type stuff in but not to play games.

PS4 doesn't even support bluetooth headsets, so I'm not going to even think about keyboards.  I was happy to see that there was a HOTAS compatible with the PS4.

My bluetooth keyboard connects to my PS4. I believe it is text typing only, no controls.

I pre-ordered back in...(looks up in the thread)...May, and I got my code a week later to punch in Bungie.net.

Haven't heard or received anything since then, so I logged into Bungie again. Found that I could finally link my Blizzard account to Bungie, and I found a section on Bungie's site that let me generate a code for Blizzard so I could pre-load.

Having never played Destiny 1, I can see how someone who's never played can get overwhelmed at the start, esp. if the starter mission that the beta starts you off with is the very first thing new players will do. There was no tutorial, tooltips, or anything that explained how to utilize class skills, superpowers, etc. One minor hand-holding when it came to picking up a new weapon, but that was it. Pretty standard FPS fare though.

In regards to random loot, yeah, no: http://www.pcgamer.com/destiny-2s-weapons-and-armor-wont-have-random-rolls/

Combat movement felt really slow, nothing special about the gun play, enemies didn't feel interesting and the area design was linear. Biggest problem I had during the starter mission was that with everything glowing it was hard to know what to interact with, I ended up stuck because I had no clue there was a double jump and having to stand at the right spot to blow up generators.

Only positive thing I could say about the game is that its not a cover shooter.

This was pretty boring and bland. Not a great way to introduce someone new to the game.

I guess I'd play if a friend absolutely loved it or something, but right now I don't see a reason. I'd rather go back to Warframe or The Division.

I don't see how this is any better than Warframe, esp. with the upcoming open world expansion.

For the 1% who care, a hour and half video of the story behind Destiny: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2avSq-82oI

Too long for me to get through and I am left wondering why create such a convoluted complicated story for what  is NOT a role playing game. Somewhere near the half way point it starts talking about a big battle for a walled city. Why does a breach in the wall matter in a world with flight and space craft?

I like the first game well enough that I'm not going to brush this one off from a "beta" (demo) that was pretty light on content.  They even didn't let you play with half the game's systems.

The PC version isn't out for a few months anyways so I'll have plenty of time to see the console review before buying it.
