Ignore me it's downloading now. I moved the game onto the internal hard drive over the weekend. Looks like something messed up as even with the disk in it wouldn't start. Uninstalled it, it's now reinstalling and a 13gb patch is downloading - hopefully this is an old patch plus the new expansion/4k stuff.


I've booted it up after the 6GB install (along with Osiris patch). First impressions...

-Not massively impressed with the 4k update. In fact, I can't 100% tell whether it's actually working (not a good sign).
-Secon mission takes you away from Mercury - I don't want to jump straight back to EDZ - weird decision
-Vault system is still the same - really hate this - it's so unwieldy I can't tell which duplicates I've got and so can't farm my doubled legendaries for shards / see what parts of amour sets I'm missing. Such a small alteration to this would make a huge difference.

+Sill looking forward to collecting more stuff and pushing up my numbers. Underlying games is just too moreish.

I can be on after work but I warn you I only just got in and it may be the same time tomorrow.

Don't worry, I'm just walking home now and don't have it installed yet. Tomorrow?


Ok but it looks like this week at work is going to be complete shite so I most likely won't finish until 10.30 so I won't be on until 11 after I've had something to eat.
I'm not working Friday though so that may be better.

Friday will be good. I might play beforehand but I'll make sure to leave my secondary character alone till then

Had my PS4 in rest mode but it didn't bother downloading the update :lol: It just started there when I woke the system up.

Normal for Destiny in my experience

New patrol area is both small and annoyingly large (without sparrow)

Decided to get tokens to try for new gear - 3 patrols (only 3 in there!), 1 lost sector (dittor) and 75 Cabal.



Took About 30 min (an episode of Just a minute) as pain to find Cabal.

One hand in from challenges, resource nodes and the event once.

Lincoln Green Weapon and Hiero Camo legs.

Both of which I have dozens off.

Never played it before, surely you can see it has zero jaggies?

It’s more how long it took for one roll of the slot machine and then that they laser it possible from their shiney new vendor to get just the old gooseberry fool.

They’ve put a new pulse rifle in that gains damage as fires rather than as hits. It’s going well in pvp

Imagine a world where Bungie could actually balance PvP and PvE separately.

EDIT: bloody hell did they not see the possibly problems with this weapon at all before launch?! https://clips.twitch.tv/NimbleZealousMoonBlargNaut :lol:

I’m conflicted about the new content. The most notable of these new features they’ve patched in, - specifically, buying engrams for shards and heroic strikes - are just things that should arguably have been in there from the start. The steady drip of stronger loot is undeniably satisfying, but where do you go with it? The raid? Awful things. Super-hard nightfall? Ugh.
I’ll probably do the missions and a bit mooching about the new area but I can’t see myself spending a huge amount of time on it. I think - if Anthem ends up being all that - Destiny could be in trouble in the not too distant future.

Given EA's recent loot box debacles I'll be staying away from Anthem.

The story for this DLC was kind of just there. A couple of glimpses of new landscapes, and some cool imagery, but ultimately most of the gameplay was pretty forgettable. A lot of fighting the vex/fallen/hive/cabal on cubes to open the door to more cubes. And I've lost count of the amount of times the game has pulled the "boss at the start of the level that you have to chase" trick now. Usually results in a wasted Ult.

When you finish it, there's a cool region crate that needs you to solve a puzzle to get at, and I'd like to see more of that stuff.

I guess the real draw is the new gear, cosmetics and modes. It's pleasing to be levelling up and making progress faster than a trickle again, even though I know in my brain it's a hollow enjoyment.

Just done the Pyramidion mission. Seems alright so far. That assault rifle you can chose from Ikora after one of the missions seems pretty great.

Haven't had any new exotics drop yet but I've seen on reddit there's another bunch of D1 armour ones been added (included Helm of Saint-14 :) ) I see there's a hand cannon version of Read Death for some reason. Would have been nice if they just added the D1 version since that's pretty much my favourite weapon ever.

Looks like there's a ton of new Eververse stuff :simper:

Reddit did the maths including everything (Sparrows, Ghosts, Amors, Guns, Shaders, Emotes etc) there's more Everiss stuff than you get elsewhere.

There's more focus on the CoO Launch trailer on Everiss Items than others (it's close though)
