Live gameplay stream on right now: https://www.twitch.tv/bungie

Edit: Stream over, didn't actually show any live gameplay, though people at the event are getting the play the game now.

Story explanation of why you have to start over from scratch.

I had no idea they never added clans to Destiny but they will be in 2.

PC version will be on the Blizzard games network formerly known as Battle.net.

Beta this summer (they didn't say if that includes PC).

Edit 2: Capture of stream (while it lasts): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njsBWKymo7I

Actual start of presentation : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njsBWKymo7I&t=3265s

Came here when the part about Blizzard providing backbone/login support hit my news feed.

I've never played Destiny, as I'm terrible at FPS games on the console and completely wrote it off. Though I do recall a number of friends saying they enjoyed the game.

I guess I'll watch the development of this. Would be nice to have something proper to replace The Division tanking.

I'm pretty bad at FPSs too and I found the single player fairly easy to get into. It's basically sci-fi FPS WoW, I'm surprised you never tried it.

The story could be better and I wish they'd knock the price down so I can snag the last expansion. I had a fun time with what I played of it though. My dad is 66 and played it every damn day for about a year or so. He's terrible, but still managed to do most of the content because people have helped him get through.

One of the guys on my friends list is a retired Vietnam vet. He was kinda crappy but still came through in a pinch for nightfalls and other strike activities. We carry him a lot, but he knows when to get the fuck out of dodge and swoop in to rez our asses if we go down. The coop bits of the game with the exceptions of the hard mode and challenge mode raids have never been that hard if you weren't a total moron. With the addition of the guided content, I'm thinking it'll be even easier for people to get into D2.

Needless to say, Day 1.

Skill Up put together what I think is a nice "final version" review of Destiny 1. As someone who didn't give the game a vast amount of attention (mostly just read headlines about updates and plights), they did a good job of summing up the flaws of the vanilla and first couple DLCs, and how they atoned in subsequent patches.

As someone who 'did' put in a lot of time on The Division, I'm pretty sure this will indeed be up my alley. Think they'll let PC and console players cross-platform together?  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Well shit. PC has to wait until October to play :(.

Guess I'll just swing around in the Secret World until then.

By October we'll know if it's remotely good. The trailer during the Sony conference was terrible.

It seems like they blew their load on the event they held last month. There's wasn't anything "new"; they just put something together to show off the PS4 exclusive stuffs.

The game's now available for pre-order through the Blizzard Store/client. In Blizzard fashion, there's the standard and digital deluxe versions. Just so weird seeing a non-Blizzard game in the Bliz store  swamp poop

Dunno. Maybe Bungie doesn't know how to use a mouse/keyboard?  awesome, for real

Anyways, here's a bigger, longer, and now with mouse usage video on PC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArPP6_QXqyQ

Jason and Alex pioneered M&KB on the Mac back in the day. Of course, only Jason is still there at this point, but some of the old school Bungie folk remember. I hope.

This looks like The Division with a sci-fi skin, and I guess first person mode.

When the Division launched I thought the same about it towards Destiny.

I was pretty ambivalent about Destiny at launch, but I occasionally play it now. I'll likely check out Destiny 2 and wait on the EA similar game to see how they launch.

Looks like Destiny to me.  Should I play The Division?

+1. Maybe if they hadn't tried to reinvent the wheel for the billionth time in regards to loot and patched their buggy shit quicker, it'd be fine. But no, don't invest.

I think there is some mis-quoting going on, but I interpret the comments as "Do not play The Division."

I think my strategy is to just wait enthusiastically to see if Anthem is better than Destiny2

Then wind up buying which ever one my friends do.

Anthem is pretty, I'll give them that. I fear though that they're going to do the same exact bullshit that Bungie, Massive, et al have done with their shooter/looter games; re-invent the fucking wheel by making loot (good or bad) hard to get and hard to min-max. Massive took over a year to figure it out, same as Bungie and even Blizzard with D3. But even with the road well-paved by their predecessors, Bioware will try to do something stupid once again because "this time it'll be different, WE PROMISE. TRUST US!".  swamp poop

Destiny, from what I've read and followed, seems to be in a good place right now. Bungie's just taking the old working systems and applying more polish and constructive user feedback for Destiny 2. That's where my money's at right now.

I agree, betting on Version 2 is smarter than Version 1.  Greater chance of lessons learned.

If nothing else, I might get the remaining Destiny expansions on super-sale.
