Are you getting Taken King?

Yes, $40 is chump change 23 22.77%
No, way overpriced for DLC 39 38.61%
I will consider it based ... 9 8.91%
What is Destiny? I play real games. 30 29.70%

Having recently got back into Destiny, I have been interested with the Taken King expansion. No, Destiny is not perfect. The story is basically non-existant (especially with my expectation being Halo level) and it can get quite repetitive. However, with friends; preferably that you know, it can be a lot of fun. With that said, I find it hard to justify the $40 price tag on the new expansion. 

What exactly are we even getting? I've been playing around and learning the new 2.0 update; complete with new level system, maps, missions, layout, ect... That's basically most of what Bungie/Activi$ion has been advertising. Why would anybody pay $40 for some story missions unless they somehow end up being breathtaking. 

I'll at least wait for reviews.

Probably the most streamed ip on psn next to GTA, so yah it is very relevant...... And this expansion is probably going to sell gangbusters especially if reviewed well..... I'm hoping sony made hundreds of thousands of destiny bundles, because if stock is there it will be a bungie vs ex bungie fight come October for sales dominance.... I do expect destiny to be one of the biggest selling ip this holiday season..... 



If I had time to play a grind game like this I would. The controls are rock solid, but the idea of playing missions over, and over to level up coupled with the lack of a story (biggest flaw to me) tells me nope.

For those excited to play, hope it's fun for you.

I will buy a goty version with all dlc and wverything releaed for destiny




I haven't bought any of the expansions yet, so I'll be getting the disc version of TTK. GameStop's running a promo where you get $20 credit if you trade-in the original Destiny disc for the TTK disc, so that comes out to $40, which is the most cost-effective option. I've basically saved $40 by waiting until now to start playing again. I checked out the changes Bungie has made, and it seems like some of the more aggravating features that drove me away from the game in the first place (I stopped playing before The Dark Below came out) have been fixed. The Vault of Glass was fun, but having to repeatedly grind it just to get the gear needed to level up to rank 30 struck a nerve with me, but the new leveling system seems fine. The game honestly should have been more like this from the get-go. The core combat and gameplay of the game is fun, but that damn loot-based leveling system got to be infuriating. I don't want to feel like I need to play the game, especially having to repeat the same missions over and over, just to avoid falling behind. With lots of new missions released this year to catch up on and an improved leveling system, I think I'll be playing more regularly now.
