There's really no way to turn the music down? It's either full blast or silence? What the super fuck?

One of the audio options mutes music but that doesn't work for the title screen  Ohhhhh, I see. There's more options coming with Warmind tomorrow, no idea if those help.

I subbed to Humble Bundle this month to pick this up. Got a warlock up to about level 9 yesterday. Sorta fun, in a fever dream-y kinda way. Hasn't truly grabbed me yet, though. What am I missing?

You are missing New York. I am killing time with it too and it's polished, but as I said before this feels like a less interesting The Division to me. (I know, FPS vs 3PS). Or some post-apocalyptic humour as this is also a duller Borderlands.
Such generic Science Fiction is hard to swallow these days.

This is the featured game on the Humble Monthly this month so I bought it. $12 for a $60 game felt like a good enough proposition.

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.

If you have the Humble Monthly, you can unlock Destiny 2 now.  I also have a spare key since I bought it when it came out.  Wish I had waited until now, though. Facepalm  If anyone wants it, send me a PM.

You're not missing New York. As much as I love my hometown and the Division. They're not the same. Even with the expansion of the Dark Zone, I still can't see my home. (That's the New York part.) The two games on my most played list for the last two years have been Destiny and The Division. That said, the Division is an amazing game right now and arguably better than D2 but the devs have basically all but turned out the lights on it with the exception of a couple of small minor updates in wait for The Division 2, which I fear will make some of the same mistakes Bungie did with Destiny 2.

I'm confused about this though ;  I can unlock it now for 12 quid, right ?  But it seems to suggest that I'll still get billed next month ?  Or is it a 'pay your month in advance and not next month' thing ?

It's pay this month's in advance. You won't be billed twice. Either pay the 12 quid now and play it now, or it charges at the regular time of the month and the game doesn't unlock for you until the end of the month.

Agreed about The Division. I pray they build on it with sorely learned lessons for the sequel, so we don't have to wait 2 years after release for a playable game.

My point was that Destiny 2 lacks personality, which The Division has in truckloads. The setting is incredibly generic super-heroish sci-fi that is hard to give a fuck. Without at least a bit of charisma, these games are just shooting galleries. Which can be fun for a while, but I think it's telling that they are all having a hard time retaining players no matter the hype or the production value. I am still looking forward to The Division 2 though.

I've only played it a little and it seems decent enough. It doesn't seem like much of an upgrade over the first one, only more of the same.

"More of the same" seems to be the big criticism of this.

I've played a couple of hours of this and I thought the intro where you lose your powers was a great into... until you get them back 2 missions later. Yey I was almost interested!

I'm not actually sure why I didn't play it again, to be honest. There was nothing wrong with it as such.

This game is basically a pretty version of 'Duck Hunt'.

Ages ago, when I played the first Halo, I found it soulless and mindless and boring.  Now I found myself playing something that reminded me SO strongly of Halo, I was forced to comment on it.

To which the audience said 'You know this is by the guys that did Halo, right ?'  I did not.  It surprises me how little they've learned.

The levels are boring.  The loot is boring.  The characters are boring.  The combat is boring.  The enemy AI is slightly north of 'Utterly Retarded'. 

I suspect this might be a fun game with friends.  Alas, I have none, so I think I'm just gonna put it away in it's wee box and ignore it ..... Once I've got my character all mad purp gear.

Yeah, I played endless hours of the original Halo multiplayer with friends.  We use to get 4 xboxes together and get 16 player action going.  It was amazing.

I think I spent all of 10 minutes trying to play the actual game and gave up out of boredom.

I bought this at full price and got my money's worth, but I had a regular group of six to raid with. Once we stopped playing together regularly I immediately lost the will to log in.

Leveling through the teens was definitely the worst. It gets better once you settle into a set of weapons you like and can start chasing item levels in earnest.

I mean yeah

If you're not raiding and if you don't want to shoot the same three aliens for hours so that you can make your numbers go up (not the numbers that matter; those get auto-scaled to wherever you are) then this game is not for you.

But the raid itself is garbage. It relies too much on mechanics and is a shitty situation to run noobs and weaker players through.

It’s like they took all the worst parts of the Destiny 1 raids and rolled them into one and said, “good luck, you fuckin’ tryhards!”

Twofer post because the Year Two reveal just dropped.

It's looking like they might have actually listened to the more sensible players instead of the tryhards.

Destiny 1 Weapon choices, random rolls on weapons, moar story. new supers.

Keeping my hype level down considering year one, but it looks promising.
