Destiny approaches. The Beta was a hell of a lot of fun. I remember playing with some random people on the beta Strike mission. It took us nearly two hours to clear it, including two battles against bosses that took 30 minutes each.

The best news is that the wife is at a medical conference Wed-Sun, so I'll have lots of time to play.

Saw my Amazon shipping confirmation last night!

Just curious, what class is everyone going to play as? I liked the Titan in beta, so I'll start with that.

yep, sweet sweet "Out for Delivery"

I played the warlock in the beta. I liked that guy a lot so I will probably start with it also. I carried a shotgun all the time in the beta for some reason. I think I will carry a sniper as my second gun.

I played Hunter (no not Fred Dryer) in the beta, so I'll probably start with that.

Same here. Now the countdown to the end of the day + install time.

BTW, that live action commercial is one of the best video game commercials ever. Second place: the Halo 3 war documentary commercials.

That was actually Jango shooting a rocket launcher and the rocket flew between my shoulder and my head and puddingized that knight.

I've played a lot of Crucible over the weekend, Clash is the Team Deathmatch playlist. It's pretty easy to get Crucible Bounties filled in this mode.

I also unlocked the Strike playlists, which loads a random strike mission scaled to Level 18, 20, 22, or 24. It's incredibly brutal.

So today the first raid mission opens up I think, though they recommend level 26? OK, not going to do that yet.

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...-raid-yet.aspx

Note the collected 1,605 deaths by the six-person team (calculated via K/D ratios). Maybe a little extra grinding wouldn't hurt before diving in.

Also:

Well maybe it's because we have our group here, I'm not feeling the lack of proximity chat to be a bad thing. I have no problem at all not talking to or listening to strangers on Xbox Live. Party chat was the greatest thing ever back when we were playing a ton of Halo because then we didn't have to listen to all the jokers, and that's 99% of the user base. I didn't want to talk to them then, I don't want to talk to them in Destiny, so I don't get why people are bitching that Bungie made it this way.

Bungie did it because they saw what was done in their last game. You want to point fingers, gamers? Point them directly at yourselves.

I love the silence. It makes it easier to hear the tears of frustration hit the controllers of all the griefers out there who want to sing into their mic and call us Hitler lovers but can't.

That moon strike mission was fucking hard as shit and that was a level 12 strike and we were level 15.

Pretty sure we are not ready for a level 26 raid.

Yeah, I didn't think we were going to finish that.

That strike playlist Jango mentioned up there sounds really ugly now.

Is that the one with the Summoning Pits? I played that in the level 18 strike list. It is not easy.

Yea that's the one. Level 18 of that would not be doable for my current character.

Yikes, no way. I barely made it through the level 12 strike without running away like a chicken.

If nothing else, though, they had time on their side. They made damn sure of that. "We had heard rumors of 16 hour raid tests out at Bungie Studios," explained Watts, "so we all took off at least a week from work and spent a ton of time with folks we cared about. Then we locked the doors to our battlestations and made it happen."

Uhhh riggggght.

I am liking the new Queen's bounties. Hope they keep stuff like this coming. Would be cool though if you had to go to the Reef to get them from her personally.

Could be worse, you could have to go to the Reef and get them from her douchebag brother.

I like the queen's bounties too.

And ugh, that guy. He's like Matt Miller from Saints Row wearing armor that gives him +500 Douchebag.
