Okay, now I really need to play 1 & 2. Sadly didn't encounter the series until Bioshock Infinite, which is an excellent game.
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

Oh cool, you're in for a treat! It's been surpassed, but BioShock 1 is still one of the best shooters ever.

Not to be a tool, but it's almost like people haven't stopped breeding and there are more people buying games.
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

Fair, non-toolish comment ;-) if that were the only reason though, you wouldn't necessarily expect Bioshock's record to stand for five years.

These aren't really leaks, moneys on it being controlled viral information release.
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

Yeah, it was said that last year's Origins leaks were deliberate (would explain why there were so many). If it were me I'd wait until this time next year to hype a game that's coming in 2019, though.

May one be able to apply for the position to get first-time experience while already having the requirements of everything else apart from experience?
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

You're certainly welcome to apply! Prior experience is only desirable. Don't worry whether you're qualified - that's up to us to figure out.

Destiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fastDestiny 2 leveling guide: blast through the gear grind and get Raid-ready fast
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

That's probably not true; power levels are unlikely to change until the first DLC, which isn't due until December - well after the PC launch. Obviously we'll update this once Raid and Trials gear starts dropping, but that won't affect the earlier stages of progression.


Edit: turns out it hasn't affected any stage of progression, because raid set gear is no stronger than Powerful Gear. You can get to the 305 cap through weekly Milestones alone.

And i saw people with a 305 Handcannon and 296 Powerlvl overall already (on PC)... i have no idea how someone can have so much luck in one week.

The season pass is £29.99 / $34.99. The expansions aren't available individually yet, but we would guess £19.99 / $24.99 each, or something similar.

Ouch. Maybe worth waiting year or two and maybe you get most of released dlcs with the game. Similar to ESO.

"Shaders are now an ongoing reward for playing" says Destiny 2's director Luke Smith"Shaders are now an ongoing reward for playing" says Destiny 2's director Luke Smith

This is probably a bit hasty in fairness. Yes, it crosses a qualitative line into microtransactions affecting gameplay, but unless the impact of these mods is massive - which I doubt, given their descriptions - I wouldn't call it 'pay-to-win'.

An advantage is an advantage - big or small. And if there's a way to pay to gain that advantage over others - then it's pay2win, or at least pay2advantage

Here's exactly how much PvE content is in Destiny 2Here's exactly how much PvE content is in Destiny 2
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

All of them should be - that's how it was in the original, at least. It's the strikes that are specifically designed for co-op play, though.

Yeah, I played the beta so we did the firestrike thing. I was wondering since the only campaign mission wasn't coop (I'm guessing it's the first mission?) I was afraid that the coming missions wouldn't be either.
