Just got kicked out for the fourth and fifth time both during a mission. I’m done for the night. What I played was decent.
Same issue.

I’m in though. Probably will wait a few months to jump in though to see how quickly content is released.

I play the f*** out of the base game of these loot shooters and get burnt out and never come back haha.

I guess I am doing the roof top Boss area too early at level 2...? getting destroyed,tried about 5 times now...doesnt seem as solo friendly as the first,I will be on most of the day tomorrow,if anyone sees me online,even if I am playing Odyssey,shoot me an invite.

Loving it so far but man that fight is hard af.
Is that the one with the A.I helper? If so, shoot gun belt and shojld cause his weapon to jam forcing reload which gives you a nice window to lay down some pain. I assume you are killing the adds first.

Got 3 hour server maintenance today, hopefully will sort this issue.

This is the old man in me talking. I find the text/font really difficult to read sometimes on the screen. I wound up bumping the size and changing the contrast. It's nice to have some of those options, but it makes me feel old.

I did the same even before the game started when I was presented with the option at the start. My eyes are fine, but historically I though Divisions font was a bit small.

So, what's everyone's impression so far and what platform are they going with.

Me, without playing dark zone, I love scavenging and the encounters and grouping up with others to do the campaign. I haven't played Division in a long time and really missed the gameplay of it.

I'm still deciding between Xbox and PC. There's no cross-play with this, right?

No cross platform. I went with the X. My PC is now dated, and it's not hooked up to my TV in the living room anyway. I have a group of friends (real life) that are all getting the game on the Xbox. If they were all on PS, I would have got it for that. I just try to play where my friends play.

I am early in the demo, but so far I love that I have been playing. I know there are difficulty "levels", but I do which there was an overall game difficulty setting to make it easier for me in the higher up levels. It's why I didn't get much further in D1.

It's good but has issues. The biggest being that it doesn't really feel like a new game at all. Everything thus far is just a bit too familar imo.

The end game mission is available now, so I'm hoping to feel diffferefnt after this.

Menace, what is meant by "end game" in these games. I am so confused. So for me, the "end of a game" is when I reach the end of the story, finishing the story and the credits roll.

But clearly END GAME means something different in Division, Destiny, etc. What would be the meaning of it in laymen's terms?

That is where end game and games like these begin. Power, gear grind. New activities like raids open up. new gear becomes available. ,etc.

The story is just a glorified XP leveling mechanic.

That sorta helps. So are you told you have reached the END GAME and you can start? Does the end game START after the campaign essentially? Does the end game, end?

Not sure if it will tell you. But once you finish the campaign and hit a certain level ( level 30 I believe) the end game starts.

The end game doesn't really end.

Hmm...that means I probably have never done an end game. I know that in Destiny 1 I am level 40. Destiny 2 I am level 36.

This looks fantastic and I like the idea of toning down the bullet sponge enemies.
Don't be fooled. On hard some of these enemies are just as bullet spongy as even. I would say the dumb baton girls are even worse with their dumb adrenaline skill that they pop sometimes

If you carried on playing for a while after the campaign then you will have dabbled with end game.

Where is the end game?
You have to beat both main missions. Then log out. You should have 3 new character, each with a specialization. Choose one and continue and you should load right in front of the Invaded end game mission...this is all there is as far as I can tdll.

Game is good, but I’m going to cancel my preorder and just wait for a sale on down the line. I don’t have the time to put into a game like this right now plus I still have other games I’m playing right now.

If I had to choose between this and Anthem, I would definitely pick this.
