A new game and a new Filmaholic Gamer Review is in order. Destiny 2 is next for me, and I am so excited to share my experience with you. First and foremost, let me just mention that much like I relish the fact that I’m writing about new and exciting video games… I’m also excited to try out exciting games from the IndieGala’s vault. However, I disclaimer is very much in need here. Unless you count my very exciting Borderlands 3 experience (available to read here), I’ve never had that many first-person shooters (with RPG elements) to try out before. But I must say, I’ve never had that many free, online games either. Well in my Filmaholic Gamer Review repertoire anyway. All the more reasons to be excited am I right?
My Destiny 2 Experience Was Fun!
Oh yes indeed. Look, I know I mentioned in my previous Borderlands 3 experience that I had troubles with the aim/shouting aspect of the game. And because of my problems with the controller, I ended up playing the game on two different platforms. First on PlayStation 4 and then on my PC. Don’t get me wrong, it was a fine learning experience, but I didn’t want to repeat the same mistake here.
Hey, I need to overcome my problem, and Destiny 2 is a good practice for that. So, I thought just to suck it up and face my fears, and I’ll be fine. And wouldn’t you know it… It worked. Practice does make things perfect, and my play-through got better with Destiny 2. Oh, and please forgive me for skipping the first game. I have a weird tactic for choosing the sequels over the original game, but hey. I’m quite enjoying that. Oh, don’t let me forget. Destiny 2 is available for purchase here at IndieGala. Just click here and do your thing.
My Destiny 2 Experience: Choosing A Kick-Ass Guardian
Ah yes. My love for female characters is well documented in my Filmaholic Gamer Reviews. Whenever I have a choice to play with a bad-ass lady, you can bet your behind that I’m going to choose one yes. So, naturally, I chose to honor my long-standing tradition of playing with a female character yet again here. But from the three available classes, I did choose a Titan for my guardian class. Actually, the Titan pick was a wise suggestion from my long-suffering husband (Hi Martin), but yeah. I went with a Titan.
Of course, he’s already played it before (and to my shame so did my 13-year old nephew Michael). I know I know. I’m late to the party. But I had the best mentor in my experience. And he’s cheap too 🙂 So, according to his expertise, it’s apparently a bit easier class for a rookie like myself. Hey, I’m still a rookie by all accounts, so yeah. I picked a Titan. But here’s the thing. This is a review of a rookie that you should take with a grain of salt. It’s not a detailed review of the game, but mere an experience based opinion of it. Make of it what you will.
Oh, and just a side note. Just to give you an idea about the very cheap live-in „mentor“ I mentioned earlier…When I mentioned that I got Destiny 2 as a new Filmaholic Gamer Review to Martin, I made the foolish mistake of asking what the game was about… This is the answer I got…
–Honey, playing First-person shooters the story is like reading Playboy for the articles. You get my point, right? Yeah. I got it all right.
Great Armor And Difficult Bosses
Yeah, Destiny 2 for me was all about the visual presence. I guess he was right about that. It’s a visceral experience more than everything else. Sure I loved the basic story and the missions too, but the game was a bit more pleasing to the eye. For instance, the Titan’s armor was on point. But l like the weapons as well. Especially as I progressed through the colors. And by God, it took me a lot more than anticipated, but I got to purple legendary status (again, thanks Martin for your patience). I loved the missions as well, but for some reason, the upgrades were a bit more fun and exciting.
As you can guess, some of the bosses were a pain in my behind but hey, some of them were pretty manageable. Dominus Ghaul was a challenge, but I managed to get trough most of them. And yes, feel free to judge me, but I have no shame about this next statement. I had to turn to YouTube for help and guidance in most of my fights. And Reddit and well… Google too but hey. At least I asked for help, people. Oh, I have a gamer with 25+ of the gaming experience at home so that helped a lot. However, I must state that I played a solo PvE game here. I’m not still well equipped to handle a PvP.
A Visual Experience
At the end of it, I suppose Martin was right. Getting into the details and intricate storylines here is pointless. Since there’s so much visual beauty all around me. I mean the locations are just stunning and incredible. Heck, even the weapon and armors are beautifully designed. I couldn’t take my eyes of them. But I was entranced by the beauty of the locations more. Oh man, just take a look at European Dead Zone. I was so mesmerized by the rustic, nature-filled and shabby design, that at one point I wasn’t even paying attention to anything but the surroundings. But I wasn’t really sightseeing there so I snapped right back.
