So I went into Destiny 2 knowing nothing. No videos, no articles, no freaking idea what to expect.
Character selection was all right. Not the best but certainly not the worst. At least I wasn’t doomed to make a totally fugly face which always happens for me in Bioware games. This is my alien warlock or something.
It glitched a lot. I couldn’t tell at first if this water was a spell or hiccup. It turned out a major hiccup. Freezing to the point I had to crash game and reload and it happened multiple times.
I had fun at first and reached level 4. It started like a single player game but by lvl 4 there was a hub with other players who ran around like in MMORPGs. We fought on some planet together but I never really got the purpose of it other than shooting bad guys, which was alright in fun. But was there anything really to get me to go back….meh. Perhaps or perhaps not.
I was intrigued by the locations. It did look beautiful. This area made me think it would be how Highmountain in WoW’s Legion expansion would look like in a less cartoony world.
This vista was awesome.
And here is my character talking to an in game character that I fail to remember the name of or what group she belonged to. (Bad sign being so forgettable.)
If I go back and the game plays more like a single player I could stay but if it’s entirely sub par pvp then nah.
I bought two games as they were a great deal. But I still feel shame for buying more games when I haven’t played so many others yet.
First games is a delightful indie game called Towards the Pantheon. On sale for 75% off making it $2.24! I already started it and really like so far. The maker did the music also. The soundtrack is delightful. Look at the llama selling me wears. Kawaii desu!
The next game is Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth. I’m pretty excited to play a game based on a book I read over 20 years ago. I loved the book but it’s been awhile so I know some minor plot points will still be fresh to me. The price is 60% off making it $17.59.
I decided to quick log into WoW just to get my anniversary gifts from the mailbox. But the thing that caught my eye was the Battle.net loader had a gift too of a free download of Destiny 2 for PC. So I’m downloading it now. What is kind of neat is that I know NOTHING about this game. Multiplayer, online, single player RPG…I don’t know but I don’t intend to read an iota about it before I play.
Let’s see how much I like it from a virgin standpoint. I’ll write my review in time.
I’ve learned a lesson from the last two expansions and that was to use the app to gain rep even though I’m not actually logging into BfA anymore due to boredom. I kick myself for not doing this during Legion. I didn’t achieve flying until the very end there since I dreaded the monotonous world quest rep grind.
Now I’ve been doing only rep missions for reps that I need for the Pathfinder Achievement. I expect when I log back in to have earned it. (whoop deedoo!) I’ve finally used up my resources so I’m done with Blizzard until the next patch comes out.
I love the game. I love the story and I’m enjoying my time spent but gosh I hate these texture issues. The different layers of clothes pop through. It’s a bit of a holey mess. Perhaps it’s my computer being a two year old cheezy gaming laptop with GeForce 920M. I took the photo with my cell phone as I couldn’t get screenshots to work, could be my bad as well.
I’ve noticed a lot of hype on ASMR videos on YouTube and mentioned on the local radio station. ASMR are sounds like just feel good. Like a tingling from the top of your head down your spine or just a relaxing feeling that could make you want to drift off to sleep.
YouTube’s MadSeasonShow is my ASMR. Not only does he make great World of Warcraft content videos his voice is just wonderfully dead pan. He even jokes about the mono tone in this video.
I like his channel. He’s not pretentious, informative and seems like the dude I would want as a guildie.
