    You could get the Legendary edition for $80 (only pre-order at the moment). You get Destiny with The Dark Below DLC (otherwise $20), the House of Wolves DLc (otherwise $20) and the Taken King DLC (otherwise $40).

    But me, I'm not bothering, I've kinda given up on Destiny at least on the DLC, I was actually happy to see weeks back a deal of $25 (I recall) for both Dark Below AND House of Wolves and I would of got it... except it then hit me that down the road in this "10 year plan" they're just going to continue to be more aggressive with their DLC, and already we have the Taken King DLC coming and it's fuckin' $40, so I didn't take the deal. I wanted to really like Destiny and be a big fan when it first came out and for a while I was, but with their aggressive DLC strategy and the fact that this will continue on for the next ten years is best described in one word for me, discouraging.

    Will be playing Halo 5 instead.

    You should give it some love, it's a pretty different game from the launch version.

    I might, I "beat" the game and then everyone I knew that had it stopped playing so it fell on the way side for me. Usually how online games go for me

    Yeah, what Rich said, get the Legendary Edition of The Taken King. You'll get all of the DLC and The Taken King, which is basically Destiny 1.5, adding a full new story mode, new mission area, new raid, and a shitload of new content. Mixed with the core stuff and all the DLC prior to it, I wish I could experience the game like that, just from the very start with all of that content, though it might be kind overwhelming. I have a hard enough time just starting a new character.

    If I didn't get Destiny prior I would for sure go for the Legendary Edition, I think this is what Destiny probably should of been in the first place (this much content for this price).

    Now I know though, when Destiny 2 comes out I'm not going to get it at first, I'm going to wait about a year later for the Legendary Edition of Destiny 2.

    Space Sweeper if you're still looking to do the Vault of Glass raid you have my Titan (both Striker and Defender subclasses at 100%).

    I hope this is to do with actor availability rather than Bungie caving to people's unfounded criticisms of Dinklage's performance, where they couldn't tell the difference between delivery and characterization.

    I'm not doubting Nolan North is a great performer, Nathan Drake is one of the most well performed characters there is in games, but Dinklage had this vast, introspective cadence to his performance where he would have these somewhat sarcastic moments of looking up from his virtual work desk (where he's no doubt crunching data beyond human comprehension) and observing what's going on in the real world with a dry comment of wit, feigned confidence, or even sometimes, sadness.

    Now we have a voice that is entirely familiar to everybody that's played modern games completely erasing that as if it never existed. Very weak, entirely disappointing.

    I didn't think there was anything wrong with Dinklage myself.

    Yeah, just, "thanks for being the voice of this game for a full year, now we're gonna erase all of that and replace you with the obvious casting choice, fuck you, byeee"
