I know I just said it earlier, but god damn Uncharted Lost Legacy looks spectacular on the Pro in 4k with HDR.

Anyone here play Destiny and and are excited for Destiny 2?



Yeah very excited. Destiny became a very good game after the Taken King expansion and Destiny 2 looks like it will continue that trend.

I want to like Destiny but I rarely play online with friends and I hate the grinding/loot drops of online shooters these days. I feel like I'm missing out on something though.

My friend is a serious Destiny player. I asked if I should start playing quite a while after it came out, and he said "Don't bother." Point is I think it's a game you want to start early, otherwise the player base just becomes too OP for newbs.

Yeah, I just don't have the time to grind for 20+ hours to get the good shit.

The grinding was fine after the Taken King expansion. It became very fluid experience, at least for me. You could sit and play a couple strikes and get some good loot and it would take a hour or so. I was pretty late to Destiny and it wasn't issue.

There wasn't anything OP about it.

But, are you good at the game? Because I will surely suck.

I'm okay. I enjoy the PVE more than the PVP so it's harder to judge 'good' in the PVE space of the game.

I kind of figured.

Also: I've noticed that video game podcasts I listen to are getting rather angry with Nintendo's SNES situation. Maybe I'm not as into the scene as I used to be but has anyone else noticed?

Yeah, I think pretty much everyone is angry about it.

What pods do you listen to?

I've been digging Achievement Oriented and the old standby Gamescoop!.

I guess I know everyone is angry about it, I just didn't realize the heights this anger was reaching.

Beastcast and Giant Bombcast. I listen more for the people than the news so to hear them lambast Nintendo on the Beastcast for about 10-15 minutes was kind of weird.

I wish Bombcast was like 30 minutes shorter.

I'm afraid to even mention that I got a SNES pre-order people get so angry. So I don't bring it up.

Dammit...the Best Buys here have Switches in stock but I won't want to order one because I'm so busy right now and I don't want to be all "SHINY" and fall behind on stuff. Ugh.

Seems like they've been in stock quite a bit lately. I saw four at my local Target last week.

They were at gamestop last time I went.. I was so pumped when it first came out to get it but it's months later and there hasn't been a new game I'm interested in so I'm glad I didn't get it
