Welcome to the Box, the Skinner Box. The depths that you may find yourself as you venture forward will bring both unbridled hatred and longing as well as pleasure.

So Destiny really is an MMO then. Despite not liking it you still can't stop playing.

(Now if you'll pardon me I have to get my Dragoon in FF14 up to 45 today...)

What?

And all it took was replacing Peter Dinklage with Nolan North.

You are Erin Stout, master of spite and wager of office warfare.

You have been taken.

Reality loathes you. Your every acquaintance is yet another obstacle, so few and far between are actual friends. So you wage war upon them with no clear progress. Abandon these petty feuds.

You are alone. Alone in life, alone in spite, and alone in death.

There is a knife for you. It is shaped like[never die alone].

Call forth the apparitions of your imagination. Make real the unreal thoughts that have haunted you for so long.

Take up the knife. Bring forth your imagined company. Take your new shape.

Just a shame it kind of lost me long before it got to that point. And it wants me to pay another full game price for all of its fucking DLC and then microtransactions.

What the fuck happened to you Bungie?

That's basically how I played through the first Hyperdimension Neptunia game on the PS3 before I lost all of my save data... Then, a couple of years later, Re;Birth happened...

Other than that, I also had that same feeling while playing Do You Like Horny Bunnies?... Enough said...

It's not so good that you'd want to play it if you never have, but it's not so bad that you want to stop playing it. It's just bland enough that you feel obligated to play it because you spent so much on it already.

Well of course Erin would call Destiny "good enough" as her highest compliment. Her ability to really like anything has long ago atrophied.

... That's actually magnificent, part of me wishes that Corey and Grey used this for the footnotes instead of what they did use.

Also, now I'm terrified of Taken Erin summoning all the demons of her imagination. It would be worse than The English Gland Massacre she caused.

Damn it, stop reading my mind.

What's sad is if this had been their launch game, it would have been hailed as the greatest new MMO IP in forever. But since I've already been "beta-testing" it for a year I'm non-plused.

That was magnificent. I'm giving you all of my imaginary upvotes right now.

OT: Yea... I don't get the whole "not bad enough to stop/its just a skinner box" argument, it normaly just reaks of people who dislike a game trying to convince themselves and others that no one "really" enjoyed the game, they are just "lying to themselves", which may just be the most grandiosely pretentious thing I have ever seen in relation to vidogames. Is it really that hard to accept people having different tastes?

They made a good shooter and then released DLC for it that is far better bang for the buck than the industry standard $15-$20 for mappacks? If anything Destiny DLC is less abusive than Halo. I think if Shivering isles came out today people would crucify Bethesda for something something anti-consumer.

Yeah, except Oblivion didn't come with a slip of paper that says "BUY OUR DLC!" Destiny did. 60 dollars worth of DLC planned when the base game was underwhelming, small, repetitive, and mediocre.

Also Oblivion had some meat to it, so you could play it without Shivering Isles and not feel ripped off.
