Will The Taken King Rekindle Interest In Bungie's Destiny?

I don't know about you but I've been hearing a lot of the same over the past few months:

"I used to be really into Destiny but it just got boring after a while. I'm hoping The Taken King will get me back into it."

A lot of people have made similar statements online and it makes me wonder: Will the new expansion, as big as it is, rekindle flagging interest in the year-old game? It's probably not coincidence that the title's single biggest add-on to date lands on almost the exact same day as the full game's launch in 2014. And the sheer amount of hype surrounding this expansion makes it seem like a completely fresh adventure, and even Bungie has said The Taken King is indeed "like a whole new game."

It's true that we're getting a new location and the expansion details are impressive. They're also making an awfully big deal about that special PlayStation 4 bundle. ...who ever heard of a unique piece of hardware for an expansion? Well, like I said, The Taken King is, for all intents and purposes, being billed as a new game, or a new entry in the franchise (if we can even call Destiny a "franchise," and I don't think we can).

But I also know that a lot of former fans are still skeptical. They're not totally convinced that The Taken King will resurrect their enthusiasm, which died out earlier this year. Are you one of these fans and if so, are you psyched for the new expansion? Or has the game receded into the shadows for you?

Not a chance for me. Destiny was completely disrespectful of my time with their ridiculous rep systems, grinding for loot that never came and not even able to gain XP while doing it.

Go F&#$ yourself, Destiny.

The Taken King at an eye wateringly expensive $69AU. I buckled and pre-ordered it last week. This will keep me going for a good few months I hope (until Star Wars Battlefront). You do seem to get a good dollar versus gameplay hour ratio.

I like the new leveling system and the vibe. Bungie seems to have listened. It seems a long time since I was grinding materials on Mars trying to get to level 28. Here's hoping!

I get the hate for this game. I understand where it's coming from. So, unlike other fans of any game that disrespectfully try to defend a game they love being trash-talked, I won't XD.

That said, I do hope people would give Destiny another chance with TKK. Again, I do understand if the hype and desire has dwindled. Mostly because of the effed up pricing. I do agree that it has been a pricey ride for many.

As for me and my fireteam, though...

We're gonna play the heck out of TKK and have fun with it just like we had with the other two expansions (firstonesuckedabitthough xD) !!!

Yup, love the new changes so far, like the Ghosts now give you abilities and are called "Shells". (I see what you did there, Bungie)
But there are still some other things that need to be improved or adjusted... e.g. Sparrows are all the same still, some weapons perks are discontinued (Field Scout) but still show up on the gun and selecting it does nothing, etc.

Short answer is... Yes, I've already purchased TTK, and will play the heck out of it! =)

ive mentioned this before, i have been disappointed from the way all these dlc's have been handled with price tags. ttk is the last dlc i bought and depending on its outcome will determine my future spending on this game.

My sons and I are ready for The Taken King...

The price "seems" a bit high, but no game has brought us as a family more bang for the buck then this one.

i havent played Destiny for a while but im sure that TTK is going to get me back into it for a good while especially since i dont have any other games for me right now.

the price may be high but if what bungie is saying is true then it should be an entire games worth of content which would be fine with me to justify the price

This is probably the only time I'm going to break my personal rule and advertise this game:

The story alone is worth it!!! They outdid themselves with this DLC. It now seems like the "real" Destiny just released yesterday, and we've been playing (and paying) the beta for a good year. LOL.

(take with a grain of salt, story is still subjective, I know xD)

I'm done with it. Bungie did all they could to bloat the time it takes to grind through what little content there was. Now here we are at the point of the year where there are many games releasing. I imagine by the time Fallout 4 hits, I'll forget what this Destiny is.
