    Haven't touched it in 2 years but I will probably buy this.

    I'm personally excited for it. I haven't finished the first game, but I think it's great to see them expanding on the core game itself.

    Campaign looks promising, and that was the biggest issue with D1.

    I really like how similar it looks to D1, but it looks 5 years newer. Its a bit Jaring to jump back and forth between halo games and see huge differences in the engine and art style.

    Weapon slots look better, although I love to snipe and it looks like they are pushing to remove sniping as a viable tactic 24/7 seeing as though its in the heavy slot now.

    So glad they removed titan skating. That **** was rediculously OP

    I dont understand the cry about 30 fps and no dedicated servers. D1 survived perfectly fine without them. I have average internet yet never lag. I dont even notice the game plays at 30 fps.

    I love the scale of the strikes, it makes tvisually stunning. The one they teased reminded me of VoG but more casual.

    A lot of people don't pull host because of ping but have a higher upload and download speed leading to rage inducing bullshit. Dedicated servers are a must in any PVP game in this day and age. I hear that the PC version will be on Battle.net and have dedicated servers.

    I like the new heavy weapon system, but it feels odd to be able to have multiple primary weapons. I was thinking that the secondary slot could be stuff like fusion rifles, sidearms, and maybe a new kind of weapon.

    4v4 is awesome. Heavy ammo dropping to only 1 person is awesome. The graphics are incredible and the feedback is probably the best I've ever seen in a video game.

    I've always been salty about the gameplay reveal for destiny 1 where the guy looked out at the cosmodrome skybox and claimed that it would all be accessible. Hopefully we have something closer to that open world this time around.

    The new supers are easily the worst thing about the reveal for me. They are incredibly unexciting and all use recycled animations. I could think up 3 cooler supers in 10 seconds.

    The Destiny community is awesome and i'm already KnOwN there so i'll buy it day one and play it for thousands of hours. That is assuming it doesn't suck and fixes the issues I had with the numerous first.

    The reveal was okay. Need to see more new ideas and less iterations.

    I wouldn't count on an open world but it must be huge because D1 was tiny.

    That Captain America shield was so bad.

    Their forums were more toxic the first year than Waypoint and the Waywo combined. What a crying nerf fest.

    Bungie.net has been garbage since they updated the UI in 2013 and I don't go on Reddit because they slurp Bungie one minute and ***** the next. It's the smaller communities that I've had good experiences with.

    I'm just scared the game is small, unfinished and they keep the good stuff behind a big ****ing pay wall.

    We get one raid? Wooooo!

    No more orbit? Wooooooo!

    Clans? Woooo!!!

    I hate the managing of content these days. We get ****ed and say thank you.

    Btw I'm not poor. It's just the principle.

    Can't really do anything about that. Most likely Activision's plan to make sure the game gets done in a timely manner and makes back its investment. Their service model for the game is really archaic as far as MMOs go, which is weird for a company that used to be ahead of its time.

    Oh well. Assuming they don't botch the initial release and **** with sandbox balance, it'll be the best shooter on the market for a while.

    They will get their investment within 24 hours. After that it's just us throwing change at our TV.

    I still wonder though why Destiny is 30FPS, P2P, and now 4v4 across all game modes. It's like Bungie doesn't want anyone to take their PvP seriously. I played the **** out of it at launch before they started messing it up.

    I was seriously worried before the reveal. Would the visuals, effects, or AI degrade as they expanded their vision? Nope.

    They upgraded pretty much everything. Though I'm still cautious about the PvP changes...

    Yeah I like the change from 6v6 to 4v4... but no more 3v3? Sad!

    Jesus christ I just watched a 20minute gameplay of a stike. The way they are trying to make Nolan-droid funny is honestly stupid. He buts in like every 30 seconds to comment on something by making some shitty joke. For a game that revolves around Humanity being one step away from extinction they are trying to add waaaayy to much humor.

    I'm looking forward to the part in the campaign where he dies.

    I'm honestly suprised at all the positive reception, to me it doesn't look any different then the first. The UI and animations are still the same and are in need of a refresh imo. Cartoonish aesthetics, childish humor and plot... :\
