Re: Bungie - Destiny

Not a great first impression. It being compared to Fuse is definitely not good. I was on board and excited for that game and I couldn't even bother to finish it. From the articles so far it looks and sounds like a beautiful version of Defiance.
This new gen kickoff looks like its going to take a while to find a system seller.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

Thanks Chess for the codes and the Amazon pre-order tip. I'm all stocked up with the mystery codes and patiently waiting for the beta!

Re: Bungie - Destiny

I canceled my pre-order. The video didn't really show me anything new or unique and my backlog is too great to take on a game that isn't stellar.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

I think the game looks like........just another shooter.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

Destiny will be differnt and there is still a lot unkown. I wouldn't base a opinion...good or bad...on anything we'e seen especially fron yesterday. IMOP...I don't see Destiny as a pure shooter nor do I think Bugie will make it that way. It'll have more depth than just running around and killing bad aliens.

One thing though there has been little in way of a solid co-op style shooter/action game. The closest has been Warframe but nothing much else nor is anything soon.

Games over the past two years:
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare
  • Extinction mode in Call of Duty: Ghosts.
  • Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
  • Co-op mode in Far Cry 3 (which acts as a prequel to the campaign).
  • Spartan Ops in Halo 4.
  • Borderlands 2.
I'd consider Evolve the best example of a game coming soon that is nothing but co-op unlike Destiny.

Yea...I thought about COD but I'm sort of stuck between a rock and a hard place on consoles. I still have the 360 and could've got two to get the game but some friends ar on the 360 and some on the XO. I'd rather concentrate on the PS4 but most want COD for the MP part. Same with the Zombies...played it for awhile but some moved on. Really would like another COD like World At War. The four player co-op part on veteran was really good. Halo Spartan Ops was a blast with the weekly missions. We always had at least three of us doing that. And I played both Borderlands to the point of burnout....SP and co-op.

One game I did but again it's up in the air is Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. I've played the hell out of Diablo III on the 360 and co-op is a blast on it. Evolve is still a bit of a mystery but looks interesting. We still have Helldivers coming...sometime.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

I wouldn't write Destiny off based on impressions from a couple of games media jerkoffs.

That "profession" is less relevant by the minute, and I think they know it, because more and more you're hearing them complain about the way they are shown games and how limited their access is rather than talking about the games themselves. They're also finding themselves less and less aligned/influential over what consumers actually buy.

Bottom line on Destiny from my POV: The mechanics and aesthetics look phenomenal. The developer has a near spotless pedigree, particularly with multiplayer. And you'll have time with the beta before launch to make a final decision...a little more time on PS4.

Diablo III on the PC turned me off so much that despite all the glowing reviews, I have zero interest in revisiting it with the Reaper of Souls expansion.

Doesn't Starcraft II have co-op as well? I haven't touched it since weeks after its original release date... and I own Heart of the Swarm too.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

Destiny public beta starts in July

During an Activision Blizzard investor call today, the company revealed that the public beta for the much-hyped Bungie shooter Destiny is due out this July. We already knew that the beta was coming sometime this summer (and would on PlayStation platforms first), but this gives us a more specific month to wait for.

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/des.../1100-6419465/

And to add....another site mentioned that every year "Bungie Day" is July 7th in which they tend to release something special....

Looks pretty badass in the dev diary. I have total faith in Bungie, not jaded journalists looking for page clicks.

You should revisit the main game. It's completely different now.

I've been hearing the UI is more in tune with the console versions, correct?

If that's the case, I'll wait for the next-gen edition.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

Seems weird to me that because a few journalists weren't floored by the demo of Destiny they're all of a sudden jaded, irrelevant, or just looking for page clicks. Maybe that's the new complaint for the year after a couple years of everyone mad about publisher payoffs and bribes.

I don't know why it's hard to just believe that the presentation they were shown wasn't that impressive, but they were shown only a small part of an otherwise great looking game.

Right on, most of the time at this point before a release we're listening to early previews saying how great a game is. Getting us all hyped up and preordering. "This game is going to be great, etc"! Brink, Rage, others come to mind. Can't believe I blew money on some of those shit storms.
If some of the early non paid off reviewers weren't excited it does give me a pause cause usually every early review of big budget games says its "going to redefine gaming". Then you play it for a few weeks and trade it in for something different.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

Sorry, nobody thought Brink was going to be great.

As for trolling for page clicks, it was an off the cuff remark. Although it does seem like a slow downward trend.

Re: Bungie - Destiny

"BrinK'...a real shame because everything from that game leading up to the release sounded and looked good. the concept was good. I totally forgot about this game and frankly was part of highlighting and pushing the game based on what we were seeing. Several of us bought the game at the same time and all almost gave up at the same time which was about a month later. The AI was brutal...we thought it was stuck on "Veteran" setting. To this day the trailers still look good...from 2010

Brink sucked. I rented it from the library and still felt ripped off.
