Great job John and Lnkn, and everyone else who helped with the OT.

D1 OT1 was already over. D2 must be a bomba.

Stoopid middle of the week release! Too bad I can't stock up on sleepy time now and trade today's wakey time for Wednesday mornings sleepy time 😡

Itís insane that Jumper isnít the default control scheme. Itís so, so much better.

Of course we could always switch to that other control scheme... The one that releases in a month or so *shudders*

Big 'ol spoiler-free interview just went up w/ Noseworthy on The Daily Star

Choice bits:

How much of Destiny 2 do you see as a springboard into further experiences or future games?


All of it! Destiny 2 is really a story about the Light, and what it means to be a Guardian, and we think Destiny 2 will cast a long shadow on subsequent games, and it will matter, and we are building towards something.

Weíre not going to say the story [from Destiny 1] is unrelatedÖ with every sequel, weíre going to take the opportunity to go back to a level playing field and introduce new players and get a fresh start.

And thatíll mean certain things narratively. But we certainly see the next few games and expansions tying together narratively in a way that they all build upon each other.

We donít want to get to a place where you canít play Destiny 3 because you missed some DLC and now you donít know whatís going onÖ weíd never do that. But certainly the big beats in the sequels will together tell a story that we think is pretty cool.

Weíve taken a lot of effort to make sure weíre not dumbing down the game: we have the same complexity that we had before, with many of the same mechanics, but rolled out in a way thatís more intuitive and can be followed in a way that they donít have to have someone explain to them, or where players have to go to the internet.

Will every Raid have just as much history to it as Vault of Glass and Kabr, delivered to players through items and Exotics?

Absolutely, yes. And we might have even more in store there, too, but we want to save some stuff for our players to discover.

But thereís definitely a cool story around the Raid, and we think people will appreciate that, especially as they play it more and more.

Exactly what happened to me as well. I was making so many mistakes since Destiny was the first I've ever used that control scheme. But now I'm used to it and I even use it in Overwatch.

Does anyone on PS4 use the Nacon Pro revolution controller? It's essentially a PS4 Scuff controller but cheaper.

I just picked up a PS4 Pro on the weekend (having sold my PS4 last month), and already have a Firecuda 2TB SSHD on order as DF found some good gains especially when it's cached game data correctly!

Can't wait for this on PS4 Pro, I'll be eventually playing on all platforms, which makes it a real shame about no cross platform character sharing or import/export.. but I've got good a levelling up quickly in D1 so it's not the end of the world!

Although I can see your point, it also doesn't properly illustrate the location of the patrols.

World's is accurate, as each location is on a world of its own. But a zone could mean one world with multiple locations.

I guess the best option is just calling it "4 whole new locations to explore across 4 planetary destinations."

I donít want to burn out on it, and I mostly plan to play the campaign on it honestly, so once that's done... . Thereís too many other games and not enough time to play all, and Siege is the only game I keep coming back to.

I like it.

I've for the most part stayed away from gaf threads on Destiny 2 to avoid knowing too much.

I'm really interested in how this ones going to be received and what kind of sales numbers it'll have.

I use the Horipad FPS Plus, which is way cheaper than a Scuff and it has a little button where a paddle would be under the left side. I use this instead of jumper, but am always screwed if I play with somebody else's controller!

Incidentally, this controller also allows for some sort of auto-shooting but I've never tried it. The instructions were in Japanese and I never looked into it elsewhere!

Decided to do warlock for PS4. Not going to make the other 2 classes on console.

Once PC hits, hunter first and then the other two. 100% commited to PC after that, and will likely only play PS4 warlock just to play with friends who are still there.

Shame we couldnt have cross save :/

Beyond hyped! Can't wait for Wednesday (uk gaf). Getting the edition with the season pass for PS4, looked great on the pro.

Interestingly enough, just ordered everything to build a PC and get a free code with my graphics card, so will at the very least try it out on PC. But all my friends are on console.

But I see some people talking about cross save. Is it hinted at? Game changer if true!!!

Can't see why it would be an issue, being saved server side etc.

Hope it's not just a one-time transfer thing like last gen to current gen was.

I'm doing all 3 and hoping for an eventual cross save or at the very least a character transfer like they did for PS3/PS4 - XB360/XB1

I'll just play one dude on the PC until that happens
