The top set of replies to that tweet are pretty funny.

PSA - If anyone wants those Engram stress balls, they are preorder-able at GameStop in-store.  I don't see them on the website, but if you are interested they are item # 146508.

BALLS, this thread is dusty. Don't forget that the Beta started today at noon CT!

The beta is really good!  To me, its the perfect blend of 'feeling like Destiny' and a nice new coat of paint and enough new things to make it fresh.  I'm really happy with it and look forward to September.

 

Now, I still need to decide if I play D2 on Xbox One or PS4.  Anyone else switching?

I'll continue to play on :xb1:.  Why switch to :ps4:?  Do you have a group of friends on :ps4: or want day one access to the exclusives?

Staying on XB1 also but might not end up getting the game just not feeling it anymore:

You're staying on Xbox. I need somebody's gamertag for my wife to laugh at every time they come on.

I have it preordered on X1.  I played the beta briefly.  I really don't like 4 player crucible.  Yuck.

 

I haven't played actual Destiny in months.  Once no items carried over I didn't see the point any more.

 

But yeah, I'll be back for 2...

I'll be back too.  I'm really starting to get myself mentally prepared for it to be different though, like io said, with 4 player PvP and so on.  The beta was fun, though.

The one thing I look forward too is the rapid level gain/loot drops you get in the beginning of a game like this.   There's always something new and shiny to go after and that part will be exciting.  There was always a small amount of that with each expansion but with starting from scratch it should last much longer.  I hope they learned from the last expansion and introduce even more ways to earn loot (stuff like Court of Oryx, that arena thing I forgot the name of, etc).

Ah, yes, Prison of Elders.  How can you forget everyone's pal Skolas?

 

I agree, the early discovery is a lot of fun. 

 

Not sure if you guys follow a journalist named Paul Tassi, from Forbes, but he has good Destiny insight.  He had a good article this week questioning Bungie's decision to go 4v4 in PvP, but keep PvE activities multiples of 3.  Its a good read and, like Paul, I hope Bungie has something up their sleeves so you don't have to ditch a friend to run a different activity going from Crucible to a Strike or something.

Are we to expect that all PvP will now be 4v4?

Everything I have heard has pointed to that along with no Rumble mode at all, at least at launch. Even ToO will be 4v4 when it's finally added down the road.

There is also a rumor going around that it will launch without a basic Clash mode also.

I wasn't even thinking of Prison of Elders, actually, though that's another example.  I was thinking of the place where you use keys (or whatever) to start up challenges.  The one that's otherwise in a public area (not the Court of Oryx but the other one).  Wow, my memory is so bad I can't even remember what that was called...

^^  io, you're ok.  I completely forgot about Archon's Forge too!  Thanks for the reminder AJ.

 

 

I jumped on for a last go 'round with IB and had a really good time.  The first couple rounds I did....not so well.  But after I knocked off the dust I was killing it.  It reminded me just how damn fun Destiny can be.

I've actually gotten back into D1 lately. I must have missed where they made all rank up rewards go up to 400 LL because I probably would have gone back in sooner. I'm not going to go for any of the raid loot at this point, but I'd like to see what all the weekly treasures have in store for me.

The D2 hype has drawn me back in.  I hadn't really played much since winter and the gaudy new armor from the old raids didn't excite me at all.  But I was fooling around with strikes the other day and got the Snowglare helmet for my Titan and I got all excited. 

 

3 years later and this game can still get me worked up for a stupid loot drop.  I don't think I'll play all that much more prior to D2, but this has been a good refresher as to why I love this franchise so much.

 

Plus!  The Destiny Funko Pops are shipping to Gamestop!  Merch whores unite!!!

 

On that note, the McFarlane figures are incredible.  I picked up the Vault of Glass Titan and it is by far the most detailed action figure I've ever seen.  Great for display.

I did see the Xur and Lord Shaxx Funko Pops at GS and was tempted to pick them up but passed. Will definitely try to pick them all up if they ever drop to $5 each like a lot of Pops don't GS.
