COD is COD; laser straight weapons and fast respawns. BF offers a nice range and lots of shenanigans but most of that isn't fun solo at all. I think that's where BF has its draw. Its pretty much the only shooter I won't play solo unless I'm working on an assignment.

I really like the DT DLC. I think the few tanks and chopoers it has is great. Way, way better than Final Stand. Though the FS maps are cool as far as terrain goes. Why tf won't they put all the maps in one giant rotation...??
I've put so much time into Destiny that I don't feel like I can just drop it (or is that just the addiction talking). I will say that 3 weekly strikes, 3 Nightfall strikes, 3 Crota raids, and 3 VoG raids is hogging all of my gaming time and it's a lot of work. I shouldn't feel like gaming is work. For some reason I'm just hooked and I can't get the evil tendrils out of my brain.

I liked Dragon's Teeth for that exact reason, I was really looking for some good infantry maps and they are excellent. Minimal tanks/choppers (not that I dislike either) and great gun-on-gun action.

I'm also peeved by the way all of the maps are separated. It discourages you from playing the DLC because there are only 4 maps in the rotation and they get repetitive. Compare that to the 8 or so vanilla maps and it's easy to see which rotation most people are going to play. It's a shame because most of the maps are pretty good.

In searching deep for some semblance of a reason on the map rotation, I can only guess the DICE wanted to mitigate the quitting ratios. You know what you're possibly getting if you play DLC, but if a map comes up in the full rotation nobody likes and 25 people bail it's not good.
Even that is a weak argument.

Its the addiction...let it go lol. Said it before and I'll say it again. The day I tried playing golf and didn't enjoy one bit of it because I felt guilty over not playing Destiny was the beginning of the end. There's no easing off you just trade the dam thing and rip the bandage off. Your life will be better and you'll thank me.

I bought the limited edition so I'd feel stupid for not playing content that I already purchased. But, I guess that's my fault. Shouldn't buy that kind of stuff for a game that I haven't played.

I want to be able to play Destiny and other stuff, but I'm struggling to find the balance. Maybe I need to ditch my alts and make three of the same character to make it all easier. I think you may be right. I'm a lost cause. I have so many excuses.

You have your moneys worth...let it go; then take a shower, shave, and for Pete's sake clean the formunda out of your chair. Then we'll see you on the battlefield, race track, and flying in the skies of Lego land rather than languishing in your own fluids because of so many characters...

I'm stating it here. One week, NO DESTINY! Starting tonight. If I can go a week, I can go two, if I can go two, then I can quit. I have to take this one step at a time. It ends now. So, are we playing BF4 or Drive Club tonight? I guess I also have Infamous First Light and Lego to play. I'm going to discover new games again! There's just too many games out there that I'm missing out on because of Destiny.

Destiny, I'm going to miss you...

I'm not a huge college football fan. If the Badgers aren't playing I don't feel a big urge to watch. I think it's cool that 'Bama isn't playing, for once, but that's not enough to get me to watch. I like pro football more.

I don't think I can help with Shmoopys intervention tonight. I poured my heart and soul into the first one and it failed. I just don't think I have anything left to give. My heart can't take another failed intervention.

Man, what sealed the deal for me on destiny was grinding my azz off in iron banner to get higher level gear only to have it obsolete a week later. Then on top of that if I wanted to upgrade my exotic weapons to be equivalent to the vendor purple weapons I had to buy an upgrade then re-grind all the unlocks that I already grinded to get. That sealed it for me.

Destiny, I'm going to miss you...

I did it for a 8 days man. Then on the 8th day I thought I'd pop on for 45 minutes....


Honestly I think just casually playing 2nd DLC will be more fun than anything TDB related.

I'mma go get Curse, he's the best chopper pilot I've ever seen, maybe can't handle the viper like MPH, but his Little Bird skills are crazy.
What lego game?

Yeah, found out today the 2nd DLC will up the max to 347, so I agree 100% there.
But it is also only making the weapon 14% more damage.

Anyway, I platinumed BF4 before Final Stand, and actually had fun doing it, maybe 10% of it was a grind.

Below video: substitute "can I have a beer man?" with "Shmoopy, let's play another game." "Shmoopy, back away from Destiny!" "Shmoopy, back away from Destiny man!!"

Yeah, I think I'm going to make it this time. You really can't play Destiny casually and I'm missing out on so many games due to the constant grind. I'm not looking forward to having to re-grind all of those exotics and making my armor obsolete. I'm not looking forward to more RNG. The entire game was simply a barrier to progression. With all of the things I hated about the game, I don't know how I played so long and so much. I guess I just got caught up and got enough carrots to keep following along.

Lazy, Nexus, Trail, mph, Hapi... I'm not going to let you guys down! I'm glad so many of you joined my intervention tonight.

Most gaming protagonists are pretty bad people it seems.

It's Day 2 and I'm feeling strong. Recent Destiny news has soured me to the game even more and I'm not feeling the itch so bad. Bring on more Drive Club and BF4!
