A nagging animation issue made it so I couldn’t enjoy it... (Destiny)

But Zavala just outclassed 21 million of us.

One of the few times I wished I was a Titan. All the more respect for him now. :-)

Is it just me, or are these cinematics far too sluggish? Like everyone just slowly places themselves into position, and it kills the flow and tension for me. The pacing in so many “action”-filled cutscenes is painful, and made worse by the exaggerated poses that characters make in an attempt to hide it. Is it an issue with Mocap? It’s been a problem for Bungie ever since Reach (remember the terribly-animated Elites?).

Really takes me out of the moments. I watched it at 1.25x speed on YouTube, and boy is it so much better in most instances. You could even crank it up a little higher in spots.

Anyway, yeah. The story aspects of it worked really well though, for a bite-sized morsel.
