I’m only a few hours into waiting for my copy of The Division 2 to arrive today; here are my early impressions.
The graphics are solid. Frame rate is solid. No screen tearing. The sound is also crisp and clear.
There is zero gunplay.
So far I have found no use for cover.
The self care maintenance mechanics are tedious but realistic.
The in-game timer is slow, or at least feels slow.
There is no satisfying DING to mark personal progression; it’s disappointing.
In all seriousness, I can’t wait for my copy of the game to arrive so I can play the crap out of it! Wahoo!!
It probably goes without saying that I will be playing the ever living heck out of The Division 2 this weekend. I will also be playing more of the first Borderlands via PS Now, which continues to be a sketchy service at best. It never ceases to amaze me how poor the streaming can be when I have excellent internet and my system is hardwired into my router. It’s bizarre. I may also continue my lackadaisical pursuit of the Thorn in Destiny 2. I’m also going to indulge in some Horror Movie Friday antics by catching up on some horror movies I have but haven’t seen yet.
With that I ask: what will YOU be playing this weekend?
Full disclosure, the topic for today’s piece was suggested by my partner after I lamented not knowing what to write about. As soon as he said it I loved it.
Please be safe out there, friends. Cheers.
