I’m a very big Destiny fan but haven’t played this (yet?), but I’m disappointed in a few things mentioned here.
I watched some stream or video yesterday where the player character nodded strangely as a response, and I understood they removed the voiced character. Very strange! I’ve seen nothing so far that suggest the storytelling has improved over Destiny 1, in which it was fine, btw.
And the thing about “actually adding the lore into the game” was not true I guess? The Grimoire cards should’ve been readable in-game yes, but removing them completely is a huge mistake. And scanning things? That was in the first game too. Destiny 1 was just kinda cryptic, and people didn’t like that. So instead they turned up the comedy for some reason, which I can’t believe anyone seriously asked for? The heavy presence of Cayde-6 in promotional content has really turned me off.
And I hate that PvP is 4v4. I did not like it in the beta at all, and that every mode is that makes me genuinely sad. Can anyone share any impressions of this, how it feels now? And are there still 3v3 modes? That’s barely a difference, while before the change from 6 to 3 actually made sense and felt very differently.
I’m not thrilled about the changes to shaders and weapon loadout either.
Anyway. Sorry, since I haven’t actually played the game maybe my opinions aren’t worth much. But I’m bursting with pent up frustration about this game and the discussion around it and had to vent it somewhere.
