say's **** game that just released and not "free-2-play?!!
I'm enjoying the hell out of Destiny 2. Bungie/VicariousVisions really nailed the feel of the game, it plays perfectly. They also did a hell of a job optimizing the game, it even plays well on my work box with an old GTX 780. Even on that computer the game is gorgeous.
And I've seen no lag in the PvP.
signatures are annoying, right?
It's pretty sad how.much destiny borrows from Warframe, the mission select (map of Galaxy) and even the loading screen for a mission with the drop ships flying. They have some major differences but the similarities are undeniable.

Today Bungie announced that they have acquired the full publishing rights for the Destiny franchise from Activision.
As for what changes, that remains to be seen. This handover does not necessarily mean scheduling will change or the Eververse will be nuked from orbit, but it’s hard to see this as anything but good news, which is how the vast majority of fans will receive it. Bungie has made plenty of mistakes that likely had nothing to do with Activision’s influence to be sure, but without the megacorp breathing down their neck, the thought is that the game will have room to breathe and grow the way Bungie and fans want. To say Bungie is excited about this is an understatement, as according to Jason Schreier, employees were cheering and popping champagne when the news was announced.
More big news from Destiny.
They are partnered with Google Stavia so you can truly play anywhere through a Chrome browser.
They are also implementing cross-play and save across all platforms- console, PC/Stavia.
They are moving the PC client from the Blizzard(/Activision) launcher to Steam!
They are releasing the majority of the game for free! You will have almost all of the currently released content except the main story missions from the expansions, those will be purchasable separately. It will in include their next update that's free for everyone, Shadowkeep.
Going forward no more season passes, you will only need to buy the new content you want when it launches and none of it is required for future releases.
Love Destiny or hate it, this is pretty big news.

This video just shows the NEW stuff from Warframe
Honestly most AAA developers (EA, Activision and even Microsoft) are SUCKS at doing GaaS game. Currently the best free-2-play games are Warframe and Path of Exile. Go play these with your friends.

I have played a buttload of Warframe. The main issue with it is that they don’t explain anything and many of the systems are incredibly convoluted. Also, it gets repetitive super quick.
That being said they have done an amazing job making a F2P game fair and balanced with their item shop. Everything can be acquired through playing and it’s really not too grindy or burdensome. I have bought platinum from them when I get a good daily login sale code because I wanted to support them. They are the only developer so far that has struck the perfect balance.
