I absolutely believe we’re going to advance the genre
On Console YES on PC NO cause so far everything I know about Destiny I'm already doing in Firefall or other PC FPSMMO's!

But still I'm very excited to see what Bungie can do besides Halo and Destiny looks Great so far!

Also Bungie doesn't want to say "FPS/MMO" cause most consolers ONLY think of World of Warcraft when they hear the word "MMO"

NOT ALL MMO's play like WoW, MMO just means Massive Multiplayer Online and MMO's are ALL Genres including my favorite FPSMMO (First Person Shooter Massive Multiplayer Online) like Planetside 2 or Firefall and maybe one day Bungie's Destiny!

Quote refers to the gameplay machanics. No MMO rant needed.

I can think of a few unique thing they could do, what if every player could build so many things like forge/minecraft depending on level and class and when i got so big a near by opposing force could be given a mission to do with that building within the persistant world, money for doin this could be though the main story like a regular mmo.
And people would join forces/clans to build bigger structures

Not if your going to make people be always online your not.

MMO games are generally online only are they not? Or am I missing something here?
Root  +   921d ago
Yeah but they aren't really a MMO company are they

These are the guys that created Halo and a lot of people played Halo for it's fantastic single player

For their next game to be always connected to the internet without any off line play or single player is off putting

It's a waste of Bungies talents...I wouldn't be bothered if it was just another game because you'll always think what they'll do after but TEN YEARS they are going to spend on this. It's depressing.

^ There are also a lot of people that play Halo for it's multiplayer. The pendulum swings either ways with that argument.

I think Bungie has a better idea of what is and isn't a waste of their talents.

I don't understand the logic here. The point of the game is to be online...
Septic  +   921d ago
Exactly what I'm thinking. This game revolves around the social aspect and staying connected with friends and a community through your console or your phone etc. How on earth then would you have a constantly 'living' world?
nirwanda  +   921d ago
It sounds to me like the world is evolving all the time by the community.
I.e people building stuff and if you needed certain class to make certain bits then you would need the social aspect

It won't be how you think it is...Let's wait and see what they have planned. So many surprises ahead.

I wouldn't called the game overhyped, I mean the game is ridiculously ambitious so naturally the hype is going to be through the roof. MMO/FPS on consoles, made by one of the greatest developers, a game that will be supported over the course of 10 years, it all a massive undertaking.

Sounds really cool and exciting. But so far this just looks like a FPS version of Eve Online. So I am not seeing any new concepts just yet and the whole how can you make anything bigger than "Halo" thing worries me. Because lots of games have fiction and worlds a lot more detailed than Halo. Halo was a revolutionary console game but it was old news on PC from day 1. Still this could be the first great console MMO.

Hope its really fun. I remember how fun DC Universe Online was and I wasnt even a big fan of MMO's. It had its share of problems with loading issues at times but it did not stop me from enjoying it on the ps3. Now with Destiny, Im sure it will be one heck of a game on all NEXT GEN SYSTEMS. I also hope they come with a new dc universe online game for all next gen systems & maybe they can have cross platform play. That would be cool.
I think they will advance it because they're not making a MMO. People still haven't wrapped their head around the idea that they're using elements from MMOs but the game itself isn't a MMO.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   921d ago
I hope they do I look forward to this game.
akaakaaka  +   921d ago
so this guys made a casual fps and introduce casual features like regenerating health and now they think they can do or change anything? lol
halo was fun because it remind me of power ranger but is very outdated.. and their MMO fps will bring microtransactions and etc i can smell it from the start activision are not saints.
plus did you guys saw the gameplay? lol it look really ugly.. i love the art but grfcs and the model this game will play are a no no for any hardcore gamer and sadly sheeps will fall for it.

I would call introducing proper enemy A.I a casual feature, before halo fps's were prescripted i.e it was the same game everytime you played it.
You walked so many step and enemy would appear here or they would always walk the same path.
Halo was different because it started life as an RTS.
Regenerating health changed the behavour of you and the enemy forcing both to make use of cover and also how enemy/squad responded to someone in cover so every game played differently.
Also it was one of the first game were if you increased the difficultly the a.i. became better, the old way of doing it was bullets did more damage

I bet Halo did not invent difficulty FPS (meaning is not the first game that make you think) difficulty where in other games, even in CS it was a online game but it was a fps that make you think, HL ring a bell? come on! don't act like others games where not there.

plus what else have they done after that? o yeah right nothing new to the table.. and now this?

so they got away from M$ which i don't like to join activision and got away from HALO to made a clone of it? want to buy their freedom to get lock for over 10 years with activision lol

I smell B#$#$%$ in all this and sadly sheep will fall for it and thanks to brainwash propagandas and commercials they will sale a lot.. just got emails form gamestop about the game, loging on facebook and first propaganda i see is yeah you guess it right.. well why if your game is soo good don't let the fans talk about it without so much propaganda? well they know no one will buy it and is a fact.
