3 Comments The Cursed Checkpoint #304 – Destiny Undetermined

  1. Indigo Pimp

    Nice cast!

    You guys really focused on the “loneliness” aspect (from both sides). One guy had friends to play with how actually sometimes wanted to play alone, while the other guy always played alone and wished he had others to adventure with.

    I’m curious as to how the game scales. By that I mean, if I start out playing solo and a friend joins me, does that ramp up the difficulty or challenge at all?

    I don’t own the game yet, but I’m seriously considering it.

    It seems like the game scaled a bit. When I was level 14 and my level 18 buddy jumped in, I feared we’d be overpowered. But like I said, we died pretty quick because we thought it would be easy.

    I do know the end game raid stuff really starts to ramp up the requirements for other team members to have the right gear and stick to their role in the fight to succeed.

  3. Aaron

    Once you reach the endgame, missions get a number of modifiers on them that make enemies tougher or ammo drops harder to come by. I’ve been avoiding a lot of that for the time being as a solo player, after coming across a single enemy with a stupid-strong regenerating shield that I couldn’t take down fast enough to damage its real health.

    I REALLY wished for matchmaking throughout the entire game at that moment.
