Decent but what's with the censorship?

I was into the latest podcast until the host beeped out a spoiler. I was interested in what the guy was saying but the host freaked out and beeped out the spoiler. I'm an adult and can handle it... weak to decide for me what I can't hear.

Great podcast

TWAB (Faction Wars)

Tim Williams: Each of the factions of the Tower is having a rally to collect resources for its cause. They’re recruiting Guardians to gather supplies for their faction and destroy enemy resources. They’ll offer a suite of rewards to help the Guardians rise up against any enemy threats. As an incentive, each faction has set aside a powerful weapon to entice players to choose their side. The faction whose Guardians collect the most faction packages will be declared the winner. The winning faction will offer the weapon to everyone, but all who pledged loyalty will receive it with a huge discount as repayment for their contributions to their faction’s cause.

Nightfall Controversy: Is the Nightfall worth it especially when the strike isn't fun? Also, why so buggy?

Rank #2: #85: The Displeasure Gardens

Podcast cover
Read more
This week, In Orbit discusses the story in spoiler detail and goes into the lore that leads into "The Leviathan" raid, Destiny 2's first raid featuring the Cabal and a story that is given background by an adventure on patrol on Nessus, but not directly involving the main story of Destiny 2's campaign. In Orbit gives a review on the game, what we liked, did not like, and think needs to be improved upon.

In Orbit also goes into a brief synopsis of the raid. "The Leviathan" is a gigantic spectacle that amazes with it's look and many parts are a ton of fun to play, but once again, the game goes through so many moments of inconsistency. One infamous room, "Pleasure Gardens" is giving many people are hard wall to overcome due to the inconsistent nature of the Royal Beasts that patrol the region. Stay tuned for next week's episode where we give a review of the raid and a final review of the game.

We finish up with Messages from the Reef!

Kyle Kimlick - What are your thoughts on the clan experience as a whole in Destiny 2?

Jarret Redding - Do you think Bungie will release multiple raids per expansion?

RaspNogar - Based on the beta and Playstation play so far, do you think Destiny 2 will be able to succeed as an eSport on PC better than Destiny 1?

Eli Ansara - What was your favorite moment from the Destiny 2 story?

LuminousLamma - Power weapons: Is there a superior option for legendaries? All on same level?

JVaz - What is the most efficient way to level up?

GuavaDude - Weapon Mods: how do we feel is the best way to use them, why? When? Etc.

MediumRarely: Is there any must have guns or equipment y’all recommend for the raid?

Rank #3: #84: Dawn Of A New Age

Podcast cover
Read more
This week, In Orbit goes over our initial impressions on Destiny 2 now that It's here! We talk about the graphics, music, cinematics, story, content, controls, and gameplay. As a whole, the podcast enjoys the game, but we have a few issues in terms of story pacing, delivery, and overall difficulty.

We also discuss the leveling system that has proven to be a tad more complex than the system in Destiny 1 which has lead people to believe that they are losing out on power (the term that replaces light in this game) when they infuse their weapons and armor.

The community is also up in arms with regards to the shader system. Previously in Destiny 1, the shader system was you get a single shader, you apply it to your character, and your armor becomes that color. In Destiny 2, the shaders are now individual consumables that are not reusable, but you get them from all forms of activities. Each item, such as ghosts, armor, weapons, and ships, can be changed using these shaders.

Very Frequently Asked Question: “What is the exact time I can dive into Destiny 2?”

The answer is dependent on where you live. Destiny 2 will have a rolling midnight release across the globe. You will be able to play the game as soon as it is 12 AM, September 6, anywhere in your country or in some cases region. In the US, for example, that means the entire country is live when the clock strikes midnight Eastern.

Messages From The Reef

Jason Buchan: Do you think they'll take away gun perks from armour like faster reload, more hip fire accuracy, faster ads, etc... and replace them with weapon mods quick draw mag, laser sight for better hip accuracy, grips for faster ads. And keep the armour perks relatively ability orientated?

Giving Quiet Signs: I have a question for all of you from the live action trailer. Is Cayde-6 a cat guy, or a chicken guy?

JustinYnolds: Is Dominus Ghaul the Shield Brother’s father? I am super excited about the improvements to ease of player progression, but my biggest concern now is that I'm going to blow through the PvE content, and since the grind for god-roll weapons is gone...as a Destiny grinder, am I going to be looking at trouble?

Lars Umlaut: Is Destiny 2 on PC an afterthought?

DEFCON 01: What is everyone’s launch day plan/routine? In regards to bungie saying engram’s power will be determined on drop, and that will be a MINIMUM power they will decrypt at, what are our thoughts on that?

ChikinFingaz: How authentic is wilhelm scream's ...wilhelm scream. What's the production value like?

Messages From The Reef

Juan Diaz - At the end of the mission we all played in the Beta when Gary kicked our faces out...what do you think will happen after that moment? In my opinion we will decide if we wanna stay with our same face,race look,etc or we restart as new guardians and then we'll see all the new options Bungie made for us. And what would you say if the only way to gain your light back is trough the Raid...?

Jamie Broome - So you feel Bungie have revealed too much information and footage about Destiny 2?

David Schnoes - What is your opinion on the spoilers leaking, and coming out after the embargo?

DSB Overlord - Thoughts on the scope of character customization?

JDog_12345 - Will we ever see a Destiny porn parody?

JustinYnolds - Are we going to have the same factions? New Factions? More than 3 factions?

Defcon01 - With the hunter class ability being a dodge, what do you think they replaced that skill w/ on the Night Stalker subclass (assuming it IS indeed coming back)?

TWAB

Destiny 2 PC Beta
Early Access: August 28
Open Beta: August 29
Beta Ends: August 31

Elaboration on Quickplay & Competitive: Quickplay matchmaking times will be shorter with less emphasis on skill. Control winning score is now 100 (up from 75 in the beta) and mercy rule requires a larger points gap. Competitive will have a slower matchmaking time, but will emphasize on matching you up with players in your skill range.

Updates to the PC beta include: Removal of infinite super glitch, removal of warlock glide glitch, removal of infinite grenades glitch, warlock melee range brought down to match all other classes, reduced time of super recharge, increased grenade damage in PVE, increased power ammo drops in PVE (yellow bar combatants now drop power ammo guaranteed. Bungie said you can farm the ammo).

Returning Exotics & Legendaries?

The video for the competitive crucible showed off what looks to be a titan with the Taikonaut helmet, and the SUROS legendary scout rifle from Armsday leading people to believe that some, if not all, exotics will be returning to Destiny 2.

Sugar Rush Not only do we have Rockstar energy drinks, but Pop-Tarts are the latest powerups guardians around the world are using to get energy crashed and burned. Per reports, the Pop-Tarts will get you XP bonuses and the Rockstar cans will get you legendary gear.

TWAB

Destiny 2 PC Beta
Early Access: August 28
Open Beta: August 29
Beta Ends: August 31

Monster is the new preferred drink of choice for Activision this time around! Rather than continuing the partnership Bungie had with Red Bull around Taken King time, Destiny 2 is now on Monster energy cans and per reports, will provide legendary items with codes.

Destiny 2 PC Beta & Restrictions

Bungie’s Beta for PC is coming soon along with a new control map, Javelin-4

Bungie is placing restrictions on game capture software and streaming software. Fullscreen capture can be captured via hardware methods such as Elgato, AVerMedia, or a dedicated streaming PC, but software capture such as OBS and Xplit are not supported unless you are playing in windowed mode. Per Bungie, this is to prevent people from cheating or using malicious software to change code. Similar restrictions are being placed on voice communication software such as Discord or Mumble. While they will still work in the background, the overlays this software has (Who’s Talking) will be disabled. Another overlay that will be disabled will be framerate and statistic overlays.

Destiny 2’s 4 Player PVP vs 3 Player PVE

Forbes article linked. In Orbit discusses how this change will affect teams.

Messages From The Reef

Alex M. - Are you upset that there aren’t more elements or subclasses in the game? Even Pokemon added two new Pokemon types when they went from Red & Blue to Gold & Silver. While the new subclasses for the Warlock & Titan are cool, they seem like modified versions of the Sunbreaker and Bladedancer with a Defender bubble.

Jose V. - How worried are you that Destiny 2 won’t deliver on it’s grand vision? From the stuff IGN has shown, I haven’t seen anything that really stands out. The beta was fun, but didn’t seem like a real sequel. It felt like the DLCs we have been getting since the beginning of Destiny.

Rank #10: #77: The Beta & The Omega

Podcast cover
Read more
TWAB

The TWAB was spare on new information, but that's okay considering we just got a giant beta! One major thing did pop up:

Beta Design Lead Rob Engeln - "The PVE game tuning has changed pretty significantly since the Beta build was deployed. The nature of a Beta of this scale requires that it’s based off a build of the game that is now months old. So, in many cases, your feedback is helping us validate changes that were previously made based on internal feedback and playtesting. For example, we too felt that ammo (especially power ammo) was too scarce in PvE. In addition to retuning the drop rates, we built a system that guarantees power ammo drops for you and your Fireteam from certain enemies, giving power weapons a more reliable and predictable role in your arsenal. Other areas where we’ve made significant tuning changes include grenade effectiveness in PvE, Boss vitality, and weapon damage against non-player combatants."

Beta is live!

We go over the first story mission, the strike, and our thoughts on PVP!

Messages From The Reef

Conna Rice - What are your thoughts on the sound effects?
Nick Layton - What are your thoughts on the story?
Rob Von Sturcken - If Destiny 2 was a bottle of wine, what would you compare it to so far?
Taylor Gumbiner - How about new mechanics you see in the strike; how supers are meant to be used more accurately now instead of spawn/active. What are your thoughts on this?
Juan Diaz - After playing the beta, what is your worst fear you have for September 6th?
Captain McFly - What is the weekly ritual going to be like?
