any of the old crew tempted to double dip and bring your guardian into the future (or rather present) on PC? I miss you lot. 

 

Never got on with mouse and keyboard, also prefer gaming on the couch. The PC visuals are tempting though!

Just a note regarding this - if you haven't finished Forsaken you might need to finish levelling to 50 before you can use the 690 stuff! 

 

That's cool. I have a sneaking suspicion I'm already there. If not I'll just do more Forsaken content until I am. I had plenty left to do.

Yeah, the Wealth of the Emperor buff stock reset last night as well, so you can pick up another three. Odd time for a reset, especially since after picking up the first three the vendor text said you'd reached your weekly limit.

Yep, and if you do the nessus kills while ascendant and then do a nightfall, it gives the nessus map fragment again for some reason, so you could skip one map fragment if you wanted to, as I still have that second nessus map fragment, even after completing the quest and getting Truth :lol:

 

Sadly, I did the other 3 fragments then did the nightfalls, so it didnt help me at all :facepalm:

Interesting interview with Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy on the future of Destiny. Some pleasing comments about their resistance to big budget sequels and keep the game right for the current fanbase and if they can bring in new players along the way then great but they aren't worried about the GTA and Fifa crowd in the same way that Activision obviously were.

I'm looking forward to being able to move my game from PS4 to PC in September. I just tried my copy of the base game on my PC and it's frankly delicious. That m/kb action combined with 4k/60 is "lip smack".

 

Given it looks like we can just buy the bits we want I might just grab Forsaken (Since I never finished it on PS4) and whatever the new stuff is come september.

Sorry for being dense here, but there will be no cross play with any platform. It's cross save. Will Stadia players be able to cross save?

I miss my PS4 Clan (hi Pete, Bish, Col, Punk :)  ) but I moved to PC. Hopefully this move may tempt them over to the PC side....

Yeah, that sounds like a really good change. When it says "Unused Eververse items" what does it mean? All the armour/shaders/insert other thing I can't remember here without turning the game on? EDIT: FOUND IT! "armor, Sparrows, shaders, Ghost Shells, transmat effects"

I've just got back into this after @Tetchy forcibly making me sort my gear out. It's bizarre how the simply act of having to sift through your gear and bank is a massive barrier to playing something.

 

Anyway I quite like the gameplay loop now. I'm never going to raid, and I presume at some point I'll just burn out again, but it's nice to pootle about shooting things and having goals to grind towards. Crucible is still a bag of fucking bullshit dicks with garbage connections, especially when you're restarting with very little decent gear.

Yep, I'm guessing all those armour pieces with 10 value, shaders, sparrows, ships. May be worth keeping hold of certain armours/ghosts depending on perks though.

 

If you've already unlocked them on your account you'll still be able to buy them for shards and glimmer come September.

Is there any way to just buy Forsaken on Xbox? They seem to not be on the store anymore.

 

It doesn't look like it. You have to buy the collection which is currently £36 quid :/ Some people are saying the option appears if you have bought Warmind and Osiris.

 

EDIT: the collection with Warmind, Osiris and Forsaken is £28 on CD Keys but the Xbox store collection has the annual pass in it as well. Fucking hell, they don't make it easy, do they?

The Forsaken complete collection has been reduced in price by 60%, though, to £35.99. So if you want to look at it this way, you're not really paying for everything again - Forsaken itself, plus the annual pass, cost significantly more than that new, and this contains all of that. Well, it contains everything to date, really.

 

Alternatively, you could just wait until September and buy that bits that you want then. The free 'tasters' from Forsaken onwards that you get in the free-to-play version won't contain much more than the patrol zones, strikes, and crucible/gambit activities. The quests, and raids, and the hidden adventures and stuff from Forsaken onwards will all have to be bought if you want to play them. But obviously we don't know the per-item cost of those things yet.

 

If anyone's waiting to see what comes in September and is thinking about what bits to buy then, or is even thinking about buying anything right now, I would recommend Forsaken itself - the single best release in D2's life - but also the current third of the Forsaken annual pass, Penumbra (sometimes called Season of Opulence). So far at least, it's easily the best third of the annual pass content from this year, though two of its three major new repayable activities - the raid and the forthcoming heroic version of Menagerie - do require a pre-made fireteam of six. The normal version of Menagerie itself is pretty great though, easily the best matchmade activity they've introduced in Destiny, with a lot of raid-lite mechanics in it. The addition of the Chalice, which lets you refine and target the rewards you get, is pretty much the best mechanism Bungie have come up with for taking away the pain of RNG while still leaving some randomness in there (for good/god rolls) to ensure the whole thing doesn't just feel perfunctory.

 

It's a shame you can't just buy Forsaken and Penumbra now - the pairing of those two would be my recommendation as the pick of this year's crop. But fuck knows what they'll cost when bought separately after September - or if you will even be able to break off each individual bit of year two content like you will be able to with year three. And by then, of course, we'll also have Shadowkeep, and if everyone's playing that and it's as good as the best stuff this year, it might all add up to a fair bit of money if you've only got the free version as a base.

 

@moosegrinder - DIM is found at https://destinyitemmanager.com and has been around since March 2015. It was the first third-party item manager to come out for Destiny. It's similar to Ishtar et al but, in my opinion, better. It just does more, and (usually) does it better. YMMV.

Agree that this season is a good one. I've never bothered to get to max light as quickly as I did this time.

 

I don't even want to play another round of Iron Banner. I managed to complete the quest but it became seriously tedious. Thankfully there's a cheese/bug for the final step, which they lazily made just "play more rounds".
