GamesBeat: Bungie needs to show more about what will make Destiny unique

GamesBeat's Dean Takahashi wants to see more of Bungie's Destiny to see why it's going to be good. (Destiny, E3, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I don't think Destiny needs to be "unique". I think it simply needs to be good. The quasi-MMO features (like meeting other fire-teams in "public areas" and encountering public events) seems pretty unique to me.

Nothing new. Well, it IS new on consoles. But nothing new to a majority of gamers that have ever played an MMO on the PC. I agree with the Author- it just needs to be good/fun. They don't need to reinvent the wheel here. Just bring a game to an audience (console players) that has never had it available before.

I love that the newest consoles are so MMO/f2P friendly. It really is going to open up the market and expose a lot of players on consoles to new genres while showing PC gamers like myself how we can enjoy the same experiences on a console.

Halo was nothing new either but it did bring some new things to consoles so it doesn't need to be unique to do well.

Do you think this next gen consoles will bring PC and Console gamers together, or is it going to be the same old thing.
JsonHenry  +   970d ago
@Felonycarclub8 - I think every generation of consoles since the PS2 has brought the PC and the consoles closer together and this is certainly no exception. Just look at how many free to play games, MMO/OnlineRPG, and streamed content is being pushed onto the consoles.

Then look at the hardware that is inside of the consoles. A lot of it is just modified off the shelf PC parts. Which is a good thing for all gamers because games will be more optimized for your platform of choice regardless of whether you choose MS, Sony, Nintendo, or the PC of your choice.

exactly im luv that console are getting mmos now. its funny cause most people was bashing mmos games on this site for the longest. i guess if strategy games make its way to console they gonna act like its something new too.

I think it looks great already. What I hope for most, is that it runs great. In other words, I don't want to see a lot of lag when multiple fire teams are on the same screen.

LOL i see its a bad thing you point out how much people flip flop on this site

Looks awesome to me
I'm sold
I dunno, those private and public spaces within the game is pretty unique.

The coop-play with my brother is the main reason for buying Destiny, if you read about their influences on the gamedesign, you will be dissapointet. Let's cross the fingers.

The game feels ambitious and quite unique, so I'm already sold.

It looks good but I kind of don't like Bungie's "THIS GAME IS EPIC, WE WILL MAKE IT FOR TEN YEARS AND YOU WILL PLAY IT FOR TEN YEARS" approach. IS it good?

Calm down, we are to much of a "I need to know everything, and I need to know it now!" society.

Some of the magic of what made Halo 1 and 4 so good is the fact you knew nothing about it. No one told me about the flood before I got Halo, and I deliberately stayed away from Halo 4 news before I played it so it was a new experience.

Why would I want to ruin the mystery? What is the point of playing a game you know everything about?

Oh right, you just want multi-player. Sorry if I care more about the campaign...

Bungie don't have to do anything but make a good game they have a good track record I don't see why it wouldn't be good
WeAreLegion  +   970d ago
They're Bungie...

That's like telling Daniel Day Lewis to "spruce it up a bit" in his next performance.
sdozzo  +   970d ago
I Think They Have More To Show.
ThatsGaming  +   970d ago
Destiny is a good game, but I don't think it is near as good as it should be.

When I heard Bungie were going on their own I thought excellent! We will see some crazy new concept IP...

Destiny is essentially an online Halo meets Borderlands. Is that bad? No... Is it great? It will be OK... Did I expect Bungie to go third party for more than this? Absolutely...
