This week for Video Game Tuesday I’m making a list, and no I’m not checking it twice. It’s Things I Expect to See in Destiny 2!

What do you mean expect to see?: I mean things that would make a huge amount of sense to be added to the game in the very near future in order to make the game feel even more alive and vibrant.

#1 Grimoire: The big problem with Grimoire in Destiny 1 was the fact it wasn’t accessible in game. It shouldn’t be hard to include something like the Mass Effect 1 Codex in the game. It’d really help flesh out the world of Destiny. This should’ve been a feature in the first game, so there is absolutely no reason that it shouldn’t be in Destiny 2 already.

#2 Reworked Matchmaking in Patrol areas: This is also something that shouldn’t be an issue, but it still is. I can zone into a public zone on Titan and be completely alone. This shouldn’t be the case, especially with 1.3 million players. I want to see the max amount of people in a zone often instead of never. I’d rather be complaining about getting my kills stolen by assholes than be completely alone attempting to do a Heroic Public Event by myself and failing miserably. The crowds you see in the social spaces should be what you see in every Patrol.

#3 Sparrow Racing: This was actually one of the better PvP activities in Destiny 1, because it was so different from the rest of the game where you are shooting everything that twitches. The fact that it happened only twice in Destiny 1 is a true shame, and frankly I’d like to see Sparrow Racing become a weekly thing like the Trials of the Nine. Of course the fact that I consistently lapped everyone on the track might make me a bit biased, but frankly I enjoyed being able to relax by racing in Destiny 1.

That’s it for this week’s Video Game Tuesday. Got something you want to see in Destiny 2? Leave it in the comments below!
