Destiny: Becoming Legend

Posted 08 September 2014 - 02:13 PM

First, has anyone played the beta? I only found out about it after it was already done...

How many people have pre-ordered it? Anyone excited about it? What class are you planning on?

I have been listening to the live stream that GameStop has had going all day, and it looks pretty sweet. A combination of MMO, FPS, and RPG. Overall, I am excited though I won't be missing work for it :)

I'm looking forward to being either a titan or a hunter, but I am not sure what to think about them, there isn't much information about them available on Bungie's site (that I have found, and I haven't had a chance to read through all the forums trying to find information).

If you are interested in getting together with other DIC heads then post your username (Gamertag?) when you get it set up.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Looked interesting, but I haven't read much into what was going on.

Hm, sounds like my "get it on launch day" copy of the game won't actually be arriving until Wednesday or Thursday... Guess my plans for tomorrow night just changed...

I hope I'm just being pessimistic here, but those codes look like gear unlocks, or something similar. Probably pre-order, or something to do with the beta.

If they are gear unlock codes, how long do you guys reckon before it'll have the usual cash store?

I greatly hope they don't go that route. From what I have heard their plan is to periodically release small expansions to the game and charge for additional content. From the sounds of it they are actually planning on either (a) releasing launch-day DLC, or (B) giving free access to the first 2 DLC/ expansions to users who purchased the $100 edition of the game (as well as having -- I believe -- cosmetic gear for those who got that edition of the game). So it wouldn't surprise me if that's what the codes are related to -- the DLC and/ or the cosmetics.

Though, really, as long as they don't make it pay2win, I don't have much problem with cash shop items. Especially if they are just cosmetic, instead of weapon variations/ new weapons that are locked behind a money gate.

When I first saw an ad on YouTube, I thought it was the next Halo. Wasn't sure why Halo was going planet to planet.

I mean, it's aliens, shooting, the little floaty computer thing...

getting a bit slammed in the reviews and i can kinda understand why. I mean great game, really enjoying it and the mmo aspect has added some fun....buuuuut it doesn't feel like the next big thing that it was hyped to be. Like it tried to be a lot of everything and only succeeds a bit

Yeah, some of the reviews are pretty harsh. I think there's definite room for improvement, but I have spent $60 on worse games in the past, so I am not complaining that much. I figure I'll get my money's worth out of it without too much trouble.

Campaign: Alright, not the greatest, and they should answer more questions, but I guess it is meant to be a 10-year epic, so that will hopefully fill in over time.
Multiplayer: Alright, though it seems overly fast paced, and the lack of built-in voice chat detracts from the social aspect. That, and the fact that character level can play a large role in how well a team does can make some games really annoying to play.

I haven't had a chance to try the strikes or raids, but I think those will likely be entertaining enough. I am still looking for a fireteam that is available at the same time I am... Up to this point I have played everything solo.

I actually held off because of the reviews. I was considering it as the tipping point for buying a next-gen console, but for me the scariest thing was the common theme of the game being sort of shallow. Still, I'm all about more co-op games being created, so I'm happy at least in that regard.

They just released the Vault of Glass (raid) today. It apparently has 9 levels in it and so far people have only made it to level 3. It is a multi-sitting dungeon which looks pretty epic. 6-person fireteam.

I was never considering a console so never considered playing, but I'm kind of amused by all the rage directed at the game.

If only it were a PC game as well. I have consoles, but I don't play shooters on them. I just can't do shooters with a controller. I accept that it's possible to, because people obviously do, but I can't make it work for me. Ever since I started playing shooters on the PC, I just cannot do it on the console. Which is a shame, because I think I could have fun with Destiny.
