    I just heard shaders are a consumable. Lame, Bungie. Very lame.
    I thought it made sense to start an official thread for this new adventure.

    Consumable shaders are hands down the dumbest shit in the world.

    On a side note I finished the story on a hunter and got all the subclasses. The game is great, there is an actual story, and right now there is tons of shit to do. This game is an improvement on Destiny 1 in every single way so far (except those goddamn shaders).

    Whoops my statement was a little too much of a blanket, I haven't pvp'd at all outside of the beta.

    How is Nightstalker in this one? Pole Dancer is fuckin' trash so I want to know if Nightstalker is worth a shit before I grind away on Hunter.

    lol, it's ok. I seen the pvp on beta tho, didn't look like too much of a change. I really want to buy and try it out though. Hopefully it deserves the hype this time.

    Got a couple hours in and it's a huge improvement over D1 so far. But Bungie is always two steps forward, one step back. The shader business is clearly to push microtransactions since shaders can drop from those Bright Engrams. I'd be totally fine with that if I didn't already pay $60 for the game. F2P games have more tasteful microtransactions.

    I kind of hate Dawnblade and think it's a poor substitute for Sunsinger but I also haven't fully unlocked the class. I'm fiending to switch over to Voidwalker so I hope it doesn't take too long.

    One thing that also bothers me is your character still doesn't talk. I'm getting flashbacks to Dragon Age: Origins and the 90s with rpgs when characters say something to you and you just look at them with a stupid face. Dragon Age: Inquisition recorded 4 different voices for player characters and the amount of player character dialogue is absolutely colossal compared to what's in D2 and probably both Destiny games combined. Lazy, dumb decision in what so far is a pretty great presentation regarding the campaign.

    After the Homecoming mission....

    Hurt character slow walking....in 2017. When the hell are game devs going to realize this is played out and so fucking dull to play. I hate it when they do this.

    They unlock after completing the 10th or 11th mission.

    They're one time use and can drop more often now. Not sure if shaders are guaranteed in these but you get a Bright Engram for every level up past 20 like motes of light in D1. Not too bad....until you see these Engrams are also being sold for real money.

    Haha oh I definitely don't want a dialogue wheel but something, anything like "Shut up, Ghost" or "I'll take care of that." instead of silence and a wooden facial expression.

    I've played that exact same scene 20 to 30 times already in other games. It's such a cliché at this point that it has become offensive and I think less of the developers creative abilities. It's like orange and blue video game artwork....been done to fucking death.

    But, the game rules so far!

    PC is out Oct. 24th because it's "not ready" aka cash grab. It's night and day compared to the console version and by far the best version to play. If the beta is any indication, it'll be a great port even older PCs can run.

    But Bungie needs to fix people plugging in a console peripheral, xim4 or something, which gives players console controller aim assist (AA is crazy high in Destiny) while you're using kb&m. Pretty ridiculous. They need to just do away with aim assist all together on the PC version.

    Shadow shot comes with bloodbound automatically rolled in and does a shitlload of damage on hit. When paired with a vortex grenade it is just obscene. I'm using the spec with vanish in smoke and with gamblers dodge cooling down my melee on each dodge I can vanish extremely often, which is fantastic for pve. I haven't really paid attention to Shadow shot orb generation, so I'm not sure if it's as good as d1 in that regard.

    Nightstalker rules. I'm usually a titan and I do not regret starting with a hunter at all.
