    Lovded hearing the pc community get salty for getting outgunned by a controller. Im sorry but if you still can't outgun a controller with AA, you're probably not very good at mnk to begin with.

    Since the game went live already in New Zealand I had to basically turn-off Reddit. The spoilers over there on r/DestinyTheGame have gotten out of control... I already know too much about the game as is, and I really would like to experience it fresh for once! haha

    I have heard that the first few missions can't be completed in co-op, which I think is a great idea. I like to take my time, look around, pay attention to the voice-overs and cut-scenes. The problem I find with doing co-op is that too many people are yapping the entire time and even when the cut-scenes play they just jabber on through them.

    I'll be on tonight at midnight (east coast) while I'm smoking a pork butt and some chickens later on in the morning. Looking forward to a long night of fighting the Cabal... really hope the story unfolds nicely and peaks my interest. I'm excited to see the final product (still not a fan of the 2 primary weapons, but I'm trying to be open-minded) and get sucked back into the game.

    Make sure to check for updates after you download; there are two day one patches. My version is 1.02.

    Bungie can eat a dick with their west coast love I gotta get up at 5:30 so not staying up to 11 for this. Although when Fallout New Vegas came out I sat my clock to go off at 11pm so I could drive to Gamers to pick it up and get a couple hours in before work. That drive to work sucked lack of sleep plus driving 120 miles one way on Interstate 35 in Iowa in the middle of deer rut.

    Picking up after work tomorrow. Spent only about 20 hours in the first one (mostly alone - never did raids or anything) and didn't follow the second at all so I don't know what to expect, but if it's at all like the first I'll be good.

    Hopefully I can get @TeTe on board this time around. I think he'd enjoy it since he loved the FPS loot drive of Borderlands - I think we put a few hundred in on that series alone.

    The AA in Destiny 2 is very strong, and people were using it with KB+M so add the super strong AA and it gets annoying.

    You'll have to do a few missions before co-op becomes available. After the mission, Spark, you guys can play together.

    Turns out Amazon didn't send some of the copies to Royal Mail until yesterday so me and few other annoyed customers won't be getting our copies until tomorrow now. Supposedly has happened with some Game customers too.

    I am a nerd for owning the physical copy, so I don't get mine till after work today, then I have to install it still.
    But I put literally thousands of hours into D1, so in the grand scheme of things, I don't care that so many guardians are playing before me. I booked tomorrow off.
    No one fucking talk to me.

    After like 3 hours of installing I finally started, chose a human, played through the prologue and once I got to the farm and saw how fucking dumb humans look in 3rd person I restarted with my old exo from d1.

    Sat there kicking the soccer ball around for a good ten minutes then did a couple of missions.

    I don't understand the shader frustration. I mean yeah, it's low on Bungie's end - but never in a game have I said: "This weapon is fucking awesome, but I wish it was blue".

    Does it kill shit better is all I care about

    Jokes on you as the story is pretty damned cool and well done. I am having a blast right now and the progression is rewarding and fun. Overall very pleasant experience and much better than D1.
