I recently discovered that one of my British friends is a regular and consistent player of Destiny 2. It’s something I’ve ignored quite a bit over the years, playing in small bursts as my brother was willing to join me. The idea of at least having someone to play with from time to time set me to looking at how much it would cost to get caught up content-wise.
Much like Naithin over at Time to Loot, I took one look at the expansion prices on Steam and decided maybe I wouldn’t. I was only missing Beyond Light, but I just wasn’t interested in paying full retail. I usually don’t give up just checking Steam though, and also went to check on Humble Bundle. Partially because they’re running their own Summer Sale and just because you never know and it’s worth at least looking.
Since I had the first two expansions I ended up picking up Beyond Light plus the current season. Not really a big savings, I guess, but the timing worked out well for them, I suppose.
So far I’ve only fired it up long enough to half watch the intro cinematics and do the mandatory mission. I look forward to poking around in it a bit though. I also need to double-check all my progress and make sure I’m where I think I am story-wise. It’s been well over a year since I even launched the game, much less played it for any length of time.
One annoying thing I had forgotten about was the games penchant for just putting you into a mission it thinks you need to be doing, whether it be the first mission of an expansion or the season. It was quite annoying and something I wasn’t immediately prepared for. I was undergeared for one and it took several dozen deaths and close to an hour to get past it. Not a great first impression.
I did like the ghost rework they did at some point. Being able to customize them instead of hoping for get a good ability roll was a nice perk.
Y’all take care.
