Anyone else having issues with Destiny after you shutdown the Xbox while still in the game? I went on last night and tried to run Destiny, but it sat at a black screen. Going out to the home screen caused seizure-inducing flashing from the screen, so it was time to pull the plug and start from scratch. Going back into Destiny from the reboot it then did an update. This is not the first time this particular sequence of events has happened, so I'm wondering if logging out at the end of a session by going into settings instead of just shutting off the Xbox while at the Tower or in orbit is the way to go. I thought about firing up Peggle or something that doesn't require a disc switch to force Destiny to close, but that seems like a pain.

By the time I got it up and running last night, no one was on.

Yea the game needs a "close and go back to main menu" command or something. I have had some issues with it not starting correctly when going back to the game.

PS: I'll be on tonight probably around 830 or 9

In the inventory screen, there's an option tab. The Log Out (maybe it's called "Sign Out?") button will take you back to the main Destiny menu.

You can force a game to close by going to the Home menu and while the game square is selected, choose settings and pick "Close".

My weird glitch that I get is if I shut the xbox down while the game is running, the game has no sound when it restarts. I have to go back to the home screen and select TV or something else, then go back into the game, which somehow fixes the sound.

I get that no sound glitch all the time... I just go back to the home screen and then right back to the game and it solves it every time.

Good to know that there is a log out function. Not sure how I never noticed that.

Yeah, I get the no sound thing all the time too. Jeez, I didn't realize you could close things from the home screen icon. Also good to know.

that is awesome, but I am still pissed off at this game for fucking me over on the reward last night. If you are going to give me an awesome piece of equipment that is useless because I already have that awesome piece of equipment, then make it worth something when I disassemble it.

@ the teabagging

And yeah, you got boned last night, though could be worse...

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/704532-destiny/70189910

8 Helmets, 6 Body Armour.

But yeah, make it actually worth something. I mean this stuff is called "legendary" after all. It'd be nice if you could sell it to the weekend black market guy, that should be right up his alley.

I figured out what Hadronic Essence is BTW... apparently it is a warlock-specific ingredient that is used to upgrade rare and legendary armor. I get it whenever I disassemble any armor. You guys probably get something different and specific to your class.

Nice, it looks like it may have a Firefly upgrade. I want a weapon with that.

Firefly - Precision kills with this weapon cause the target to explode.

May not be on tonight. The wife wants to go see Wilson Phillips.

Ha, Firefly sounds great.

Just imagine you're fighting to save the universe from darkness to this uplifting soundtrack...



Hold on for one more day, guardian!

The weekly strike is the Archon Priest one that Repo and I did last night. It's my least favorite.

Bonuses to Arc, Solar, and Void damages; so bring your fun guns.

Hm, interesting. They don't level out the equipment in the Iron Banner thing. So if you have a super pimped out scout rifle, you have a super pimped out scout rifle. That could be awesome or it could really suck. Not sure which.

I'm going to go with the suck option, but will reserve final judgment until, say, the 10th time I get headshotted from across the map by some guy with a pistol that shoots through schools and my head.

Pretty cool looking armor though.

I WANT IT.

It would be awesome if you got matched against a bunch of level 15 guys with shitty guns. What are the chances of that happening? Pretty sure everyone we went up against would have the Doctor Nope assault rifle that they only need think about firing before you are already dead.

Finished Iron Banner lvl 1 yesterday afternoon. Pick up the Iron Banner bounty "get 10,000 experience". I was able to get that in 4 matches. That bounty plus a few wins put me over the 100 IB rep needed for level 1.

Yeah, they seem pretty generous with the 25 points per match to reach 100 for level 1.

Scout Rifles
Base damage increased by 6%
Damage vs. Combatants increased by 6% - 25% (based on tier)
Improved target acquisition, plus additional recoil tuning.


I'm psyched about that.
