Cliffy B is one of the most overrated developers out there... even more than Randy Pitchford.

It's possible but would surprise me since they weren't any kind of leaks or hints about RAGE 2 up until the other day.  Would be nice, though.  I would even consider 30% off'ing it depending on the changes they made.  RAGE was very solid... which is surprising for me to say for a AAA game these days.

We might have a RAGE 2 Trailer on Monday:

I was disappointed w/ both Splinter Cell: Double Agent and Conviction. While I still liked both - eh, they both had some issues IMHO. Not the best ones in the franchise.

Rage 2, eh? Oh, heck yes - the first one really needs a follow-up with an actual ending!!! Hopefully, they can get performance under wraps for Rage 2, since that was the real issue w/ Rage 1. The gameplay, gunplay, and (somewhat) open-world stuff for an Id game was awesome.

 

I'm really stoked for this, as I wasn't sure if we would get another one.

 

EDIT:

Also really stoked to see Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Borderlands 3 on there.

Yeah, I'm hoping for some good reveals too. A Bungie game on Battle.Net isn't very exciting to me and I have yet to skip a Humble Monthly since I started with them.

 

And then there's stuff like this:

"Is Destiny 2 dead?"

 

Destiny 2's campaign IMHO was awesome, which I mostly played alone - but if we're talking EndGame stuff, right now, it's a barren Wasteland. And with everyone else hitting Level 20 or 25, it's a waste to do Crucible unless you are those higher levels.

 

With just the base-game, there aren't much to do and/or not much incentive to really to just keep going. Like Diablo 3 base-game (before ROS's adventure mode and Season), there's no real end-game in Destiny 2 right now.

 

If they can't put out a great expansion soon and players pretty much quit - they better just make the game work in offline mode and add some bots or something.

what should my game #2000 on steam be? 

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (Classic 2005) if you don't own it already.

Or any other Star Wars game you're missing.

 

Just seems like a fitting trap, Admiral.

I'm not sure whether I should sell or keep it. If a complete edition is released for PC and is 50-75% off eventually, I'd probably rather wait since I doubt the DLC alone will ever be cheap. But if the DLC ends up being bad or isn't sold together, then playing now wouldn't be a bad idea.

That's certainly one way to go at it: wait; buy it Complete later; and then play it all at once later.

 

Depends on if you want to do that...or get playing now to complete the base-game and (maybe) get to Level 20, I'd guess...so you don't have to do all of that later at once.

 

Took me around 16 hours to finish Destiny 2 PC base-game. I hit Level 18. Ain't hit 20 b/c...well, don't feel there's much reason to do so right now. IMHO: there isn't a ton of interesting stuff for End-game, once you beat the campaign.

So is Destiny 2 any good as a single-player experience?

Great. I played most of it solo-style.

 

Should take you anywhere from 8-20 hours per playthrough. Depends on how much of main stuff and especially side stuff that you do. This is what the game's great at, IMHO.

 

Also game-time length depends on if you have any interest in the Crucible PvP, which I think is lacking. Everybody seems to be level 20 cap (from base-game owned only) or level 25 cap (i.e. 25 is max w/ Osirus DLC) - so, doing this early isn't a good idea at all. You just won't have a chance w/ low-level characters and especially w/ low-level gear. At level 18, still got pounded. So, I threw the towel in on the PvP, for now.

 

When you do most main missions here, they're alone missions/instances; especially often for the first time you actually head to a new planet. That often starts w/ new solo instance/mission to introduce you to the entire planet (or a fair deal of it).

 

I think the missions, combat, gunplay, loot-craze addiction, technical performance, and graphics are all fantastic. Story and character stuff is nothing special (but would you expect that in a game like this?) - but all of the other stuff related to gameplay and gunplay is something special TBH.

 

When the game tosses you onto the open-world part/hub combat areas where you run around, do mostly side missions, and do some solo missions - you'll be on with other players. In some ways, it felt like a mini-instances of The Secret World - players are in the middle of missions or just killing monsters for loot and XP, so they might help you out for a second and then go off to go back doing their own thing. I experienced that a lot on Destiny 2 PC.

 

On servers when in the open-world part/hub combat areas, there are public events. Game tells you when and where it'll arrive. So, it's pretty cool when players all pour in, waiting for a few moments for this big event to go down. It's cool to see say a big ship arrive and enemies pour out or a big machine boss fight happen, as the rest of the players on the server come in to help out and take down the public event. It's a lot of fun and reminds me of Guild War 2's public events that are boss fights.

 

Also, if you are looking to meet-up w/ players - you can use Friends function in-game or go to The Farm area (or the new area after you finish the main-story) to find more players. I didn't really utilize that stuff for the most part, TBH.
