    In the Division 1, the story could (and should) have involved you hunting down and killing



    With that as the end of the fixed story, that doesn’t change the state of NY in any way, or the need for your services as a Division agent in the persistent world. But you still get a proper story, and closure.

    The fact that these developers haven’t taken that approach is something I find really annoying, and why I didn’t buy Destiny 2 and won’t be buying The Division 2.

    And a good story can absolutely enhance the gameplay in my opinion. So can something like good music. The way you add consequences, motivation, atmosphere, context, emotion... those are all things that can enhance gameplay, and that a good story can provide.

    I agree that agood story can enhance gameplay but if you have shit gameplay would you even hear the story? Ideally the devs can create a perfect storm and get both right.

    Forsaken was a great dlc, we got new zones with plenty of secrets to explore and find with a great raid.

    Black armoury feels like its a step backwards towards Osiris and Warmind. It has me a bit confused as to where its all come from (no I havent read any lore yet) and I can't actually recall what I did to unlock it all, most likely because I went back to the EDZ and Nessus for the umpteenth time playing rehashed content/zones in what is my opinion a weak attempt to prolong the games life with 'dlc' that doesnt really give us much.

    Yeaaaaah about Xol.... Toland would tell you otherwise, actually in game as well... this is like I mentioned earlier about it being kind of hard to fit all of Destinyís story into these quarterly instalments, we ďkillĒ Xol in Warmind but Toland asks us if we think we killed a worm god during Forsaken.

    I think thatís part of an issue with a shooter like Destiny and story, itís so focused on shooting that any kind of story or lore gets lost cause the player is more keen to shoot shit than listen about whatís going on in game. Unless you actually pay attention to the story or the cutscenes or NPC dialog during missions then youíre gonna miss out most of it. The text lore in the game is building the world around you and giving you reference as to what your actions in game are doing and whatís been done in the past.

    Marco creates good content. He had a few complaints but they sounded quite minor and would probably be tweaked.

    A lot of his complaints are pretty specific to him but he is upfront about that, ie the floaty feeling of running description. Movement was always going to be a little different as they rebuilt it to remove the chicken dance and stuff.

    It looks amazing. Can't wait to try it.

    So I think it's safe to say don't pre order the ultimate edition. The "extra" storage is not actually extra it's just early access storage. What a fucking joke. I can understand that they were getting crucified for pay to win storage, but shit I almost bought the ultimate for that reason.

    I'm going to have to watch this new MarcoStyle video again as it's pretty in-depth (RPG Mechanics Deep dive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h_0r0zNNiQ), but he reckons there will be an issue with the amount of storage.

    He also says that character building is a big step up from D1 which is exciting, but also intimidating haha. The game otherwise is looking really good. I didn't mind the sponge so much but it looks increased to me, rather than reduced.

    Would be pissed to pay for the extra storage to find it's only timed, but yeah it was ridiculous that they tried to sell it.

    Singed up for beta months back...

    Pre-ordered 7:49pm ... email with beta invite 8:32pm.

    I never do this, but I bought the gold edition. Felt reasonable having over 600 hours on Division 1 and buying it for $12 or something. Can use the early access too

    Haha, probably. Maybe they invited anyone with a certain amount of game time to entice them back and get more sales.

    Now to decide $69 physical or $99 digital. God Indian JB would sell codes as well

    I've received the email for beta but it isn't allowing me to access the "invite your friends"
    I've dug a little further through the site and it showing I'm not eligible. Is anyone else getting this?

    I think thatís probably why they picked that start time. Itís prime time for us, but for the rest of the world thatís a terribly inconvenient time

    Cant say Im as hyped for this as I am for Anthem, but will probably be picking this up to at some point shortly after release - if all goes well.

    I missed the launch for Div 1 and was pretty much behind the 8 ball for it entirely, as a result of that I just never could get into it as I could never get a decent group to do the harder endgame content.

    But my biggest problem with Div 1 was it just felt every week or month pvp meta's had too much impact on the pve content. Something always seemed to be getting nerfed or buffed and that change flowed through to builds you might have been grinding to get. Nothing more infuriating than spending any length of time grinding in a game to have it become irrelevant overnight. Hopefully Div 2 doesnt follow the same path.
