Very excited for this game

mewhy321155d ago

I can't wait!! This game has had me since E3. Look amazing, with drop in and out multiplayer, public events, awesome graphics and, what sounds like, a great story. I'm really excited for this one.

"You see other people on the horizon, hear gunfire over a hill and see space magic flying behind some trees, and you know… there are other people out here, that [changes everything]. Borderlands right now is: ‘I’m going to walk into that space and we’re going to clear them out and keep going"

This is very very true. This is part of what makes DayZ so great. Adding human players to an open-world game makes everything more unpredictable and exciting. It also allows for plenty of anecdotal situations to happen

I'm not really into Halo like I was before, but this game has me very interested. It's something that seems just fresh enough to make it worth while.

Garbanjo0011155d ago

That's my argument, I haven't even played Halo 4 yet, and from what I saw my buddies playing I was just kind of like "meh, it's another Halo game." Destiny looks fresh and awesome in all it's entirety, I can't wait to get into that game, create my character and job class, and start blasting shit. Going to be stellar.

Destiny is one of the reasons why I am buying a PS4.

thrust1155d ago

I know what you mean, it's one of the games am looking forward to most on the Xbox one after watching the vids on the site.

XB1_PS41155d ago

I'm getting it for Xbox One, mostly because of the dedicated servers Microsoft invested in.

I imagine the graphics will be slightly better for Ps4, but online gameplay is what I'm concerned most about.

thrust1155d ago

The gfx will be the same.

FlameHawk1155d ago

@ sofresh412 , LMAO, again people with the dedicated servers, tell me, don't you think they will already have dedicated servers for the game?

mxrider21991155d ago (Edited 1155d ago )

@sofresh its an mmo it will be a dedicated server lmao
and most of ps fp titles have had dedicated servers for years kz has had it mag had it idk if socom did or not never played it im pretty sure uncharted did as well even driveclub is having dedicated servers

C-Thunder1155d ago

I'm almost certain Bungie already confirmed they are using their own servers.

DeadlyFire1154d ago

@sofresh412
All MMOs utilize their own server setups regardless of platform. Its easier than navigating through other's servers to make the game changes you want.

Microsoft's servers are mostly for cloud features. Dedicated servers maybe in the future, but I am doubtful they have full scale dedicated servers for all their games on their platform.

Virtually the same comment with the exception of console preference and look at the difference. Definitely know we are on n4g. Why can't people just accept ones choice in console. The whole agree/disagree system needs to be replaced with a similar one like GameSpot have and just have a like button. If you "Agree" with them or Like what they say the click like if you don't and you disagree then take the time to comment and voice why you disagree

100 times better then any halo will ever be. destiny is all you need its the new next gen call of duty but 10 times better. it also makes titanfall irrelevant. also there will be 10 times more people playing this on the ps4 with mics then on the xbox one. ps4 nation baby!

also this game does everything better then borderlands. the realistic graphics alone and shows you that and look at those boss battle enemies.

ps4+destiny= the best of next gen

The_Sneauxman1154d ago

For me the big sell point is that you can seamlessly play with others in the game and see them far away and you get the choice to help or leave them be

Benchm4rk1154d ago

There will be plenty of players on both systems for one to enjoy the game online. COD sells way more on 360 but I have never heard of people complaining on PSN that there is no one online to play with.

showtimefolks1155d ago

Make the world more interesting

Please please please reward your players better, borderlands 2 has one of the worst rare system. To get a good gun you have to beat one boss 20 times and even than its a risk. I love the first borderlands and in anticipation I pre ordered borderlands 2 and season pass and was very disappointed

Reward got everyone, in borderlands 2 who gets to the loot first picks up everything so it would be nice if each player gets his or her own loot after a encounter

More diverse open world with more interesting characters with a back story

Also if there is driving please make he driving a fun thing not just get from poit. A to point b

No doubt for sure i am excited for this but part of me is even more excited for the division.. The division will set the bar high for online multiplayer this next gen i believe.

Thehyph1155d ago

I'm getting both, that's for sure.
I'm a little more excited for the division though I think.

bf4 will defo set the par for the upcoming gen

Paytaa1155d ago

Sshh I think it's trying to communicate.

The_Sneauxman1154d ago

woahhhh buddy, I think you had one too many.

elhebbo161154d ago

I dont think BF4 and Destiny are in the same field to be compared. yes they're both FPS but both play differently

Knuckle Duster1155d ago

Destiny & The Diivision in 2014..........gaming is going to be so "GOLDEN" next year!

sAVAge_bEaST1155d ago

This whole next-gen is going to be "GOLDEN" ,,. I have a feeling we will see more games, than on the Ps2,. every genre will finally be covered again -through ease of development.

MilkMan1155d ago

Now, to find the time to play.

Benchm4rk1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

That's been my dilemma for the past few years. Between being a shift worker and father of 3 I rarely get to play my games like I use to. I have enough backed up to last me well into next gen

CRAIG6671155d ago

The thing about Borderlands that makes it so much fun is the fact it doesn't take itself seriously whatsoever, and if it does it has it's tongue firmly in cheek, Bungie will no doubt have missed that.

mxrider21991155d ago

borderlands is just boring its just grinding on bots

CRAIG6671155d ago

Totally depends how you play it. I can see you are correct at the simplest level, but you could break ANY game down like that and make it sound crude. The true joy of Borderlands is playing online with friends doing missions, but farming awesome guns./shields etc is sooooo good when you finally get what you wanted.

mxrider21991155d ago

exactly farming/grinding for gear that cant even be used in pvp your stock killing meaningless bots in boring missions the most fun i had was driving a car that was only for a limited time i mean i can see y people like it its customizable and doesnt take much skill to be a beast at it i just find it like WoW except WoW is better bc of the pvp aspect it has and the raids are cooler but in borderlands its all about grinding
