I was able to get in quite a bit after the afternoon issues settled down. The new 6 man activity is ok, but it is no Menagerie. Basically there's a mote gathering phase, and a boss fight, along with a couple other mechanics thrown in (hard to tell, as someone on my team knew what to do and took care of things). Not bad, but I think it is going to get old in a hurry.

Otherwise it seems like the usual, level up a maguffin and get umbrals.

Lots of good story elements early on with actual voice actors and not just a quick "oh by the way this happened". Try and get in before the internet completely spoils the minor surprise.

I was recently thinking of getting back in D2. But there's so much I missed that it was overwhelming and discouraged me.

But I've been curious as to what Bungie has been up to. I did a quick search and as expected its all Destiny related. I assume they have other things brewing in their secret pipeline but I haven't been able to find anything.

I guess for now at least Bungie is solely a Destiny developer like Digital Extremes is the Warframe developer. I guess the Destiny business is so profitable to them that they can continue with that one IP that supports such a large studio with hundreds of employees. I just wish they would release something new already.

I'm sure it's widely a different set of leadership / employees now, but it's funny how they left the Microsoft contract so they could do things other than "just Halo", and went off and turned themselves into a studio where they only make and support one franchise.

Bungie is working on some sort of new, non-Destiny game, but many years out and it hasn't even been officially announced.

Destiny 2 has content at least through 2023. The next big DLC (they moved from fall to Q1) is Witch Queen in Q1 2022, then they have what is hinted to be the last Destiny 2 DLC in Q1 2023, but of course that could all change.

The game isn't bad to jump back in. Everything really revolves around seasons now. You'll be way behind in story, and you'll need to level up your character a bit, that that usually goes quickly. As far as loot or anything, there's really nothing you need to get back in. I play every season and I miss lots of stuff.

The new "pinnacle" mission is ok, but nothing like Presage. It is short, and about 90% jumping puzzles. The jumping wasn't bad, just a few "that thing just moved after you jumped and now you die" kind of things that get old. it doesn't take long and doesn't need a fireteam. The boss at the end is kind of annoying but not terrible.

The mission doesn't give anything except a high stat roll armor. No pinnacle (in spite of the name), no exotic or anything else.
