GamesBeat's Dean Takahashi interviews senior environment artist Jason Sussman on the making of Destiny's art.
They looked at Halo
Wrong! They looked at Borderlands
It's a cross between Mass Effect and Borderlands. The guy in blue clearly has the M29 Incisor sniper rifle
Wrong! They took the look from Halo, the games concept is like borderlands
Unique look? The game's got some nice visuals, but thematically, it looks very familiar...
I was about to say the same thing. It looks nice but not unique
True, but no one does sci-fi skyboxes like Bungie. Some of my screenshots- http://u.cubeupload.com/Luk... http://u.cubeupload.com/Luk... http://u.cubeupload.com/Luk... http://u.cubeupload.com/Luk... http://u.cubeupload.com/Luk...
Wow thanks for the share Luke! The fourth one down is my favorite of the bunch. I won't let myself play the beta when that drops, so I very much appreciate you sharing some gorgeous screenshots!
....... Are they serious?
still wonder how this game work! open world ? or like mass effect?
open world really big
There will be multiple planets, and each planet will have multiple areas. Each area of each planet will have missions that you can do alone or with friends/strangers. There will also be a separate story mode that im guessing will take place across multiple planets too. Then there's The Crucible (multiplayer), which has around 6 or 7 separate modes if i remember correctly. It's kinda like an FPSMMO with a traditional multiplayer component also.
It's a multiplatform halo ;)
Game looks exciting and unique !!! Day one buy, Take my money Bungie and welcome to Playstation.
Wrong thread, not one person here mentioned that they wouldn't buy Destiny because of similarities it shares with other games.
Meh, Your opinion doesn't matter.
This game looks terrible. It looks like Halo. The animations and guns don't look interesting. It looks like Borderlands in space with Mass Effect powers and Halo reticles and seasoning. Wake me up when next gen is here.
If there's one thing ive learned from the beta, it's that playing the game with friends is MUCH better than watching video's of people playing it. I'm not sure why, but the game looks so boring when you watch someone playing it.
Fantasma, you must be used to playing some unbelievable games if you think this looks terrible. Did you play the Alpha? Even for an Alpha, the game looks and plays amazingly. To me it doesn't look like Halo or Borderlands. It'd be tough for you to judge if you haven't played it.
It's totally unique. If you have never seen Borderlands or Halo or Mass Effect. Other than that it's totally new. Kind of. Not really.
Honestly I was expecting better It looks just like a copy of halo- understandable considering it's the same company. To me though it just looked like a cheap copy.
Ughhh, you're back? I thought you were perma-banned. On topic: You should try actually playing the game before saying it's a cheap copy of anything. Cheap it is NOT. The UI, the feel of the guns, the graphics, the level design, the multiplayer...all are of the quality you would expect from Bungie. I was reminded by Mass Effect and Borderlands more than Halo in the time i played it. Apart from the Halo-esque menu music and the fact it's a sci-fi FPS, i don't think it's like Halo at all.
There is nothing unique about the look of Destiny. They've just taken obvious inspiration from many different, well known and established sources, then smashed them together and called it unique. And the gameplay looks just as generic and non-unique. This game is incredibly overhyped!
You mean like how Killzone is basically just the Aliens Colonial Marines vs. the Jin Roh Wolf Brigade with CoD cutscenes? http://cdn-static.denofgeek... http://animedepot.net/wp-co... Or how Uncharted is just Indiana Jones/"Tomb Raider with a dude" meets Gears of War ? God of War is just Devil May Cry with Quanchi meets Clash of the Titans. You can high concept almost anything. Welcome to video games.
It would be cool if when you see other players in the game world, you could rob them at gunpoint. They can choose to fight back if they want or surrender. Especially if they see that you're a level 20 and they're only a level 5 or something. You could choose to help them or rob them. But you have to suffer some sort of severe penalty if you fail a robbery. It would add an additional element to the game of being aware of the alien races as well as other survivors. That's how I think it'd be for real.
Uhmm no. The Guardians are humanity's last hope to survive the Darkness. It makes zero sense for them to be robbing each other when they have to all work together or face extinction.
They took Mass Effect, a little Halo, and slightly cell-shaded it, BL-style, if you look at it in the right lighting.
It's not cell-shaded in the slightest.
Look closely in some scenes and you'll notice it; trust me.
Anyone else try the beta? It was just ok for me. Is this going to be a f2p gam or sub? I fear they may have invested too much $ in it.
