So I have put in a couple hours with the Year 2 changes and it seems like they have made it so that the bounties are quicker to complete. As if they are trying to change the emphasis from grinding the same old bounties every day to doing more fun stuff like strikes and missions. I think this is a good idea, you still get the benefit of the bounties, but also get to spend more time on stuff that is generally more fun. An example would be the patrol bounty... doing 6 patrol missions was not tough, but took time. Now it seems like that bounty completes very quickly doing one or two patrols.

Cant wait to play tonight. Fired it up this morning to make sure it was all downloaded and ready to go. All good. Even got a new legendary ghost shell from the speaker for free.

Also just watched an IGN video about the new content... couple comments:

1. the Dreadnaught looks freaking awesome.
2. Sounds like the story is actually coherent... and possibly not shitty!
3. Exotic heavy weapon swords.
4. New warlock subclass has Emperor style force lightning. YOINK

There's more story in the opening three missions than the entire last game and expansions. Cayde-6 (the Hunter mentor) steals the show several times in the story and I'm not even done with it yet. This game feels like what Destinty year one should have been.

Agreed... and it seems like they loosened up, made it less overwrought and more lighthearted. Yeah yeah, it's still humanity on the brink of annihilation, but now with a lot more Malcolm Reynolds style smartassery. I like how they're willing to play with stuff, too, like the mission last night seeming to end and then, nope, you can't go quite yet. Or Cayde and the other Vanguards jabbing and interrupting each other during comms.

So to sum up, I guess, it's like they used their Nathan Fillion bat signal.
