Destiny-13

I’m kind of excited for you guys who jam on PC. You’re not just getting Destiny this month: You’re getting your first proper taste of it outside of a beta format. People to meet! Places to go! Cabal to shoot in their ugly fat faces! More than that, I have a feeling that Destiny 2’s Crucible will strive on PC. It’s tight, the four on four format keeps the action manageable and it has a focus on team-based action now, a far cry from its single-player that gives a solo player multiple moments of glory.

October 24 ain’t so far away. But is your PC ready to handle Destiny 2 at its best? As a reminder, here’s what the game looks like with every setting cranked to the max:

And again, with every setting down like a clown with the downs:

If you want to hit that 4K sweet spot, you’re going to need some hefty hardware. Also around 68 gigglebytes of hard drive space to store everything on. Here’s the list of final PC settings, via Bungie:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Admiral Chief

    In similar, yet better news…PLAINS OF EIDOLON is live on PC (looks like 3.3GB download if your game is up to date)

    YUSSSSSSSSSSS

    • o/

      • Admiral Chief

        Gaan jy jam die naweek?

        • Ja ek sal probably n paar ure die naweek insit.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Let’s paint the town pink!

      • Dresden

        Random question. Do you know of any South African groups for this game? A good friend of mine started playing the game again, but is frustrated because all the groups (or whatever you call it) he joins are either French or some other European language, incapable of talking English.

        • Admiral Chief

          WF or D2?

          • Dresden

            WF

          • Admiral Chief

            As Otto mentioned, clans are your best bet

        • If it’s clans then there is probably a local clan out there somewhere. But for 99% of the game I just use my clan as a way to access a dojo. Since there is so many locals and peeps right here who play I always have someone online to group up with.

    • MonsterCheddar
      • Admiral Chief

        Even that bokkie is licking his lips in antici——–pation for the awesomeness!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      My frame is ready.

      • Admiral Chief

        Nice!

        I’ve forma’d my Supra Vandal now twice….and I dunno why I haven’t used it that much before, thing is a beast

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I threw a few on there as well, that thing is deadly with punch through,

          • Admiral Chief

            Yeah, hallway full of enemies? PFFFFFF PRIMED SHRED THROUGH ALL THE THINGS!!!!

          • Hammersteyn

            Sounds like our last Destiny 2 Raid run. Clapped that in two nights and including the Nightfall.

      • MonsterCheddar
        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Don’t be jelly. Enjoy your Netflix.

          • Admiral Chief

            xD

          • MonsterCheddar

            XD

    • Original Heretic

      Any idea when it hits PS4?

      • Admiral Chief

        Couple of weeks likely

    • Hammersteyn

      Never heard of Plains of Eidolon, is it a RTS?

      • Admiral Chief

        Really Technical Shooter? Yes, yes it is!

  • Frik van der Hewerskink

    Is destiny 2 a subscription based game ? or only a once off buy ?

    • Once off with many many expansions to come and lootboxes.

      • Frik van der Hewerskink

        paid expansions ?

        • If it’s anything like Destiny 1 , It’s gonna have lots of expansions at the same price of the base game.

        • Hammersteyn

          DLC essentially. Fortunately the loot boxes are cosmetic shit. If the DLC in Destiny 2 is half as good as what we got in Destiny 1 then Destiny 2 will be pretty decent when all’s said and done.

  • Hammersteyn

    PC player’s minds are in a Frame of War, not sure how well this will sell.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      With the update that just dropped we can go fishing! GOTY!

      • Hammersteyn

        No way… I mean that’s all I did in FF15 near the end. I caught one so big three of the four had to hold it up so that a photo could be taken.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Yeah but you had to play FF15 to do that. I don’t like fishing that much.

          • Hammersteyn

            FF15 is everything we didn’t despise about FF13.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I played FF8, supposedly the best, and that was more than enough.

          • You played it. And here you are 18 years after release still talking about it. That’s all that matters 😛

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Cos there’s no such thing as bad press?

          • Hammersteyn

            Trump agrees

          • Hammersteyn

            Bought FF9 the other day. Missed that completely when it released. Can’t wait o/

        • Download Fishing Planet on PS4… currently my addiction to it is insane xD

          • Hammersteyn

            Been eyeing that like a 20 pound bass eyes a fisherman’s corgi, ignoring the plastic R5 lure dangling in the water.

          • The game does not wall you anywhere with MT’s needed. I dropped some cash on it for a nice looking outfit 30 hours into the game.

    • Admiral Chief

      Best thing about the new expansion? THE PRICE!

      • Hammersteyn

        Lemme take a guess. It’s a F2P game on PC, the stingiest gaming race on Earth so……. nothing?

        • “stingiest gaming race on Earth”

          …not even going to deny that xD

          • Hammersteyn

            Haven’t triggered the Master Race thing in a while. Forgot the sound of superiority.

          • We just laugh with the joke. We don’t go into super salt mode because people hate our platform 😛

          • Admiral Chief

            ^^^^^^^^^^

          • Admiral Chief

            I like my salt like you like your Warframes

          • Himalayan Pink salt o/

          • Admiral Chief

            Praise the mountains

          • Hammersteyn

            Not all of you laugh.

          • Admiral Chief

            Not all of us are called the short version of Robert

          • I know…some of “us” have AMD. It’s no laughing matter.

            *runs*

          • BakedBagel

            Steyn is right, i dont laugh… but i dont get mad

            I get this feeling of anger internally, that i have to chase away because its Hammersteyn the bait.

          • A well timed bait makes for a fun few hours xD

          • BakedBagel

            He almost caught me too…. i scoffed and was about to anime type my reply like a fight. But i saw it was steyn :3

          • Hammersteyn

            XD

          • “He who stays calm in a flame war. Will always have fun”

            …also,he who points out a spelling mistake instead instantly loses xD

          • Hammersteyn

            Now who would go and do taht in teh comentz section?

          • Admiral Chief

            *twitches*

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            That’s 99% of your wins.

          • Yes cause I stay on topic instead of whipping out my oxford dictionary 😛

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You… stay on topic?! Now I KNOW you’re talking kak. 😀

          • tsek!

          • Admiral Chief

            Indeed, we spent One Hundred and Fifty Ten Thousand Randelas on our rigs already, no money left for games

          • Technically WF is my most expensive game in steam xD

          • Admiral Chief

            Well, yes, you are correct. Same here. I’ve spent close to R600 on it 😛

          • My pretty little scarf alone was R900… fork…I am part of the problem O.o

          • Admiral Chief

            Hahahaha, at least you didn’t GAMBLE on the scarf

          • Indeed. It was like picking out a t shirt and buying it. Not spinning the rack and the one that stops in front of me I HAVE to buy.

            WF you just buy what you want and that’s it. No paid for gambling addiction needed.

          • Admiral Chief

            LOL imagine going to the underwear store, and you want boxers but end up with a g-string
            /tableflip

          • Hammersteyn

            Or going to McDonalds and getting a vegan meal

          • Admiral Chief

            Or going to McDonalds and buying ANYTHING

          • Hammersteyn

            I’ll admit, being open 24/7 is tempting after you help close the pub early Sunday morning. It’s that or something from the garage.

          • Admiral Chief

            Or go home and open a can of BULLYBEEF and chomp down on that glorious substance

          • Hammersteyn

            You want me to handle a can opener and a tin with sharp edges after countless beers and tequila? Also, I’m not nearly domesticated enough to have canned foods in my house.

          • Admiral Chief

            Nee man, it comes with a little tool, no can opener needed!
            Besides, you are big, don’t you just eat the whole thing?

          • BakedBagel

            You speaking about little tools like you have experience XDDDDDDDD

          • Hammersteyn

            Oh, you want me to thread that needle while I’m close to being blackout drunk? I’d rather mash a junior cheeseburger in my mouth and call it a night.

          • *3 junior cheeseburgers

          • Hammersteyn

            Yeah……. 3………

          • With extra ketchup dripping out of it with each bite

          • Hammersteyn

            I love the little gherkins

          • They are like little angel hugs for your tongue.

          • Admiral Chief

            Sadly….I agree. I make my own ULTRA KING STEER type burger with those 3x cheesburgers stacked

          • BakedBagel

            Ill shamefully admit that i go full American when drunk and at McD’s

            I dip my chips in my milkshake :’C

          • Hammersteyn

            LOL!

          • Hammersteyn

            O_o

          • BakedBagel

            Paying R900 for a piece of fabric.

            Bruh. My gran makes them for FREE.

          • Hammersteyn

            My gran would stab me with a knitting‐needle if she heard I dropped that much cash.

          • Admiral Chief

            *me
            or
            *you

          • Hammersteyn

            yes

          • Admiral Chief

            Can you repeat the question?

          • Hammersteyn

            I only know the answer to the question.

          • Admiral Chief

            42?

          • Hammersteyn

            Winner is you!

          • Price to hour ratio. It’s much cheaper than most of my AAA games, since I have 700+ hours in it.

          • Hammersteyn

            This is a reasonable argument. If you’re that invested in a F2P game the by all means, support the developer. BUT MT SHOULD NOT BE IN AAA GAMES

          • Admiral Chief

            Totally agreed

          • Admiral Chief

            700 hours? THOSE ARE ROOKIE NUMBERS!

          • BakedBagel

            GOTTA PUMP THEM UP

          • Admiral Chief

            xD

          • Stuff happened, not going to say any name… SPECTER OF THE RAILS UPDATE!.

          • Hammersteyn

            Does the game kick AFK players? That’ll get the numbers up.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            T3D fo lyfe!

          • Admiral Chief

            Bwahahaha.

            Worst about that, I spent quite some time there getting his NikanaP blade for him, bastard probably hasn’t even built it!

          • That blasted thing had the Ash Chassis… so… much… FARMING!!!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You can always go back to ODD.

          • I did. Like a month ago. It was traumatizing…

          • Admiral Chief

            Oh yeah, ODD, that was where I got the blade

          • The week before Ember P got pulled…50 runs a day…

          • Admiral Chief

            More runs than a post expired garage pie

          • Admiral Chief

            o_O

          • Talking about Ember P. I swapped my Nova to her as my main for PoE

          • Admiral Chief

            I was spending a lot of time with NekrosP but messing around with VoltP now

          • Ember P is now 4 formad with an Exilus slot. Paired with a 5 forma Ignus… my body is ready

          • Admiral Chief

            Ignus Wraith is lyf

          • Ney. I cant change the colour of it, so I am not using it xD

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            YOU CAN! It’s in the new update.

          • MF…er

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Wraith & Vandal weapons can be recoloured. 😀

          • I am not 5 forma’ing another wraith…

          • Admiral Chief

            Just the appearance, flames can still be pink for you

          • Original Heretic

            I’m running with Volt (not the prime, though). Enjoying it immensely.
            But I am still working my way through the game. Just recently arrived at Saturn.

          • Admiral Chief

            In a way, I’m kinda jealous, you still have a LOT to collect and level and play and experience!

          • Original Heretic

            I know! It’s so awesome when you’re seriously enjoying a game and you know that there’s still SO much content for it.
            I mean damn, I’m only on rank 4 at the moment. Some quests I try, I just get my ass handed to me. Even when I play with a buddy.

          • Admiral Chief

            PC? If you want, I’ll help out and just play bodyguard for you while you do the quest? I’ll murderrrr all those that oppose you

          • Original Heretic

            PS4.
            The only game my laptop can play is solitaire.

          • Original Heretic

            And it’s a damn shame I CAN’T jam it on PC. Would love to join you guys for some sessions.
            Especially now that I have my shiny new DSL (installed just this week). My PS4 has been in constant download mode!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I’ve just realised something… I’ve been messing around with Saryn P a lot lately & my build has a fooking long spore range!

          • Admiral Chief

            Toxic mf

          • Lies. A charred steak has all toxins burned out

          • Admiral Chief

            BUT THE SPORES REMAIN

          • Everything remains except meat

          • Admiral Chief

            ^^^

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Sometimes other people don’t even get to play, we just run after the popping spores & vacuum up the loot. 😀

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Baie dankie! I remember getting mine the last weekend, and telling an Egyptian guy that his soccer team would beat ours. 😀

          • I actually remember that. Geeze, we talked so much crap in ODD since we knew the waves inside out by then xD

          • Admiral Chief

            Won’t almost ANY soccer team beat ours?

          • Admiral Chief

            SA soccer is so bad, even the Springboks would beat them

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Galatine P is better & easier to farm too. 😀

          • Admiral Chief

            I quite like that new ARCA hammer thing. Makes me feel like I have MJOLNIR. HAMMER STRIKE!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            That’s what the Jat Kittag with the explosions mod is for!

          • Admiral Chief

            Yeah, but it doesn’t shock things. Hit after hit after hit chargers the hammer. I love the effect when you do a smash hit

          • Admiral Chief

            BESTEST UPDATE! Well, until today

          • Heretic!

          • Admiral Chief

            I think Heretic is here somewhere in the comments

          • Original Heretic

            And as heretical as ever.

          • BakedBagel

            WHERE?

            *Grabs jetpack and chainsword*

          • Original Heretic

            Right here, come at me, bro.

          • Original Heretic

            You called?

          • xD

          • Dresden

            Mine would probably do the same while cussing at me in a few languages.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Fashionframe is end game.

          • Indeed it is.

          • Admiral Chief

            Fun fact, the pretty things make your frame even MOAR effective

        • Admiral Chief

          Depending on your internet plan 😛

          Yeah, free expansion. And I’m already predicting it will be ten times more content in this free expansion compared to a paid for expansion from money hungry assclowns

          • Hammersteyn

            I don’t think expansions are quite raking in all the moola they wanted. So now we have loot boxes and don’t even start with the “oh it’s only cosmetic” crap. People that stoop to supporting MT in AAA games are the reason Shadow of War went from a 40 to a 60 hour game. Because you need to either grind for orcs or buy loot boxes.

            I don’t mind investing my time in a great video game, but if publishers are gonna purposefully waste our time while dangling a MT carrot in front of our faces then we’re no better than zombies.

          • Admiral Chief

            MT can GITMFS IMHO FFS

        • BakedBagel
          • Hammersteyn

            XD

        • MonsterCheddar

          XD

  • Craig “CrAiGiSh” Dodd

    Don’t know if I want this game anymore now …

    The price just seems to be out weighing what you actually get.

    • Hammersteyn

      The base game has more than Destiny 1 did. But wait a while if you’re unsure. It’ll go on sale like D1 did eventually.

      • BakedBagel

        I just cant justify splashing that much money on a game man.

        Im waiting for a special. All of my blizzard m8’s are highly addicted to pubg anyway (thank the pope, gives me some time to count pennies) XD

      • Craig “CrAiGiSh” Dodd

        Gonna hate missing the hype of the game but it really just doesn’t seem worth it.
        Will probably wait for a special.

        Even Ghost Recon Wildlands is now on special (50%), which is extremely tempting.
        So many games, so little time.

        • Admiral Chief

          50% “special” at R400, LOL NOOOOOOOPE

          • Craig “CrAiGiSh” Dodd

            BEGONE DEMON !!!

            XD

        • Hammersteyn

          Important thing though. You need friends, at least 5 if you wanna do the raid. There’s zero endgame if you’re playing alone.

          • Admiral Chief

            GRW or D2?

          • Hammersteyn

            Dunno what GRW is.

          • Admiral Chief

            Ghost Recon Wildlands…

          • Hammersteyn

            GRW is easy enough alone with AI friends helping

          • Craig “CrAiGiSh” Dodd

            Thanks, this helps 🙂

  • Admiral Chief

    Total Destiny relate comments, 30%

    GOTTA PUSH THOSE NON DESTINY RELATED COMMENT NUMBERS UP!

    • Today is WF day. “Loot box the game” has to much lime light.

      • Admiral Chief

        Hear here!

  • Hammersteyn

    That’s no moon… That’s a JASON MASK!

    • Admiral Chief

      No its not, it is a new helmet for the new Warframe!

      • Hammersteyn

        In a Destiny article? Then again, you did hijack the comment section nicely
