Quite true as I would be a dumb ass for falling prey to old traps like spending hundreds of dollars for DLC because the basic game mechanics get fucked with every six months when new content drops.

It bugs me that a game that is pretty much the perfect reason to actually talk to your friends online or the means to kill time until you can talk to your friends online costs so fucking much to play.

At the height of our Destiny play, we used to crash Xbox Party live chats because we were a shitload of people online at the same time actually being sociable..  That's the most important contribution this game makes.

Are there any "secrets" to find during the mission?

I didn't bother to go searching in corners or anything like for dead ghosts, etc...

I don't think there are but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask

Does a whistle protocol that was #broken for 3 years count as a secret or Easter egg?  As far as ghosts go, i haven't found any.

 

Part 3 is uploading to Xbox now, YouTube shortly.

I think I started out with it as a hunter.  

 

I didn't get a shotgun until my Titan (as seen below).

 

That being said, I do have a sniper rifle  (copperhead maybe?) on my Titan (as seen below)  that I got as a drop in crucible last night.

Part 3~!!

Spoiler

My HUNTER didn't die.  He did some HUNTER shit and got away.

 

My TITAN is fucked though...

Moral of the story, play crucible if you are looking for drops.  

I've gotten a piece of armor and a weapon from the strike, but it takes about 20 minutes (depending on randoms) give or take.  The crucible seems more econimical time-wise for drops.  

I believe there is only a set number of weapons that can drop right now anyway, and some might be more class specific (titan starts with a shotty, Hunter is a sniper, warlock is...fuck warlocks who cares)

So apparently - the PvE stuff in the Beta is really really old and Bungie has already made a bunch of changes to it for the actual game

Quote

The PVE game tuning has changed pretty significantly since the Beta build was deployed. The nature of a Beta of this scale requires that it’s based off a build of the game that is now months old. So, in many cases, your feedback is helping us validate changes that were previously made based on internal feedback and playtesting. For example, we too felt that ammo (especially power ammo) was too scarce in PvE. In addition to returning the drop rates, we built a system that guarantees power ammo drops for you and your Fireteam from certain enemies, giving power weapons a more reliable and predictable role in your arsenal. Other areas where we’ve made significant tuning changes include grenade effectiveness in PvE, Boss vitality, and weapon damage against non-player combatants.

Knocked out a good few hours of Crucible tonight. I was inconsistent at best. We'd either absolutely murder them, or get our asses kicked. A few things i picked up on while player:

When Hand Cannons were the meta back in Destiny i hardly ever used them, just couldn't get on with them (outside of Thorn). Now no one seems to be using them in the beta i am wrecking with them. I think maybe it's because of the smaller map. They do a ton of damage up close, and there are a lot of close range engagements at the moment. I don't have the consistency with an auto rifle that most people seem to be using but i was doing just fine once i settled on a hand cannon.

Heavy seems next to useless at the moment. I can probably count on one hand how many times I've actually been killed by a heavy weapon. My biggest problem is shotguns falling under that class. I was never the guy to basically use one as a primary but they were my go to weapon for close range, especially in something like control. It's taking some getting used to now they are gone. Even in PVE i'm noticing it's not there anymore.

Melee attacks in the Crucible are useless. Completely useless now.

In other news, the beta may have inadvertently saved my PS account. I was playing in offline mode and at the end of the night as i was about to turn the console off i noticed it had a message under my status saying i couldn't appear offline as i was logged into another account. I don't own any other Sony products and were't logged in on my phone or anything on the PC. So i changed my password, set up 2 step verification and had it kick every device logged in just in case.

Went through the story part of the beta earlier today. It was fun enough.

I enjoyed the beta but good God does the Inverted Spire piss me off. There's no checkpoint at the start of the part where you go to fight the Godzilla Vex. I'm talking at least 20 or 30 minutes of progression lost when everyone dies.

You sure about that?  I recall wiping there a few times and starting right back at the boss.  Might've been a glitch.

I feel like I had my best night in the new Crucible so far.  My team even won a Countdown match!  And we were down 3 vs 4 the last 2 rounds!  Abilities still suck, but I'm starting to get the hang of gunplay.  Fusion rifles are suddenly dope!

I've found the most useful ability on my warlock is the Voidwalkder perk where you hold down the grenade button to sacrifice Super energy in order to add power to the grenade.  It's a good tradeoff considering Supers are so rare anyway, and if you're fortunate enough to score a kill with that grenade, you get a big bump in Super charge.
