Really good so far!

New PvEvP mode which is cool.

Story has been good... they went for a darker tone and nailed it I think. Just done main story and now to see what is next.

There was a massive backlash early in Destiny 2 because of the big push for microtransactions in game and lack of things earnable in game.

Most people didn't have an issue with paying extra for certain cosmetic items so long as the rest of the game had lots of loot to earn, which it didn't.

Happy to say now that the game activities now have lots of items attached to activities and the vendor you can spend real money with also has ways to earn that loot... just takes ages.

That is the right balance I think.

... just takes ages.- Lance

{{{Mmmm, how ages is ages?! If they make the grind so tedious you'll give up in the end and just pay up then its just the same really.
For me all micro-transactions should be purely cosmetic, no weapons, armours, power ups, special abilities or any of that- you should earn those by playing for them not buying them. But that's my take on it.

On another note I think I am ready for the rubber room and the fancy jacket that ties up the back! I have being playing Skyrim for a long time, years in fact, and I've been using chatty companions for most of that time, but in VR Ive taken of late to talking out loud to my companions when they talk to me and answering them back, or responding to their comments! Really weird thing is it feels even more wrong not to respond when they make some comment or observation, it just feels more natural (and unbelievable as it may sound, less rude) when they are standing right next to you to say something back. I'm not sure if its the immersive power of VR, or if I'm just going ever more mad? drunken }}

It is all cosmetic stuff from there. There is armour but it is more for pretty armour than anything. No special perks.

There is a new area called the Dreaming City. Figgy and Azreil would love it... Think you might like it too!

Recently started another playthrough of Fallout 3, the story, missions and world are neither as polished nor as expansive as New Vegas (well, in content anyway, the Fallout 3 map is substantial bigger) but I've always found it more atmospheric, easier to get into and just more enjoyable than the follow up, the grey and brown post apocalyptic ruins are more fun to shoot up than the endless desert...none of those annoying Cazadors or game breaking glitches either...
