after all the trailers, dev speechs and game infos,.....i was mildly interested, but after a good 10-15 hrs into the alpha it totally make it a must buy for me, its an awesome mix between MassEffect, Memeland(borderland), Diablo, Halo and MMO.

it went from "meh" to Holy shit my nipples are hard and cant wait for the full game god dammit!!!"

...then spent pretty much all weekend lvling the titan, hunter, warlock up to lvl8, spent a good amount of time playing pvp even if im not THAT interested into competitive fps, enjoyed the shit out of the raid&random instances even if i hate mmos, and found tons of blue items that i couldnt equip due to the alpha lvl cap(such a cocktease)

man, im hyped for the full game, good job Bungie, im a believer now, the alpha changed my mind about the game!

Recently figured out that there may be more than a russia map on earth going to possibly even a futuristic Chicago (watch dogs Easter egg?).

i had it on preorder but i was still on the fence.
the alpha made me keep my preorder.

it has very strong MMO genes which i love

same here, in theory I was really liking the concept that bungie was proposing. It seemed like a good marriage of ideas from other games in a single package, but all the trailers and live demos were not doing it for me, they were not pushing me over the edge.

The alpha changed everything, definitely day 1 for me. I was left really wanting to play more of the game, the PvP i didnt really care, but ive never like Zone control modes, so ill have to wait what others they have.. but everything else was amazing.

TIP: you can preorder the game from amazon and you will get the beta code right away, then you can just cancel the preorder (though after playing the beta you probably will not want to do it lol)

Yup...I'm really excited for Destiny! I'm probably going warlock first, space magic and gunfire ftw!

It's an undeinably super polished game. I canceled my pre-order, but that's only because I want like 3 other games more and am trying to budget. Destiny is actually like a reimagining of Mass Effect in some ways. I hope the story is good, but the space faring nature and pure rethought mmo hooks make this game a winner.

Lawboy21640d ago

I feel the same way...The game cool just not my cup of there's so many games coming out I don't think I'll have enough money

JsonHenry1640d ago

I was really excited for it.. until I played the alpha. Even though I think it is a good game it still felt like an MMO to me. And I'm not much one for MMOs. I might still buy it and play it for a while with friends but I don't feel an overwhelming urge to play it.

I'm really hoping The Division doesn't leave the same bad "MMO" taste in my mouth.

"reimagining of Mass Effect in some ways"

Not next gen Halo?

The sense of exploration and even being under the wander on the last city has a strong citadel feel. Wiping around to different destinations feels like riding in the normandy.

GamersHeaven1640d ago

It was alot better than I was expecting it to be looking forward to playing the full retail version.

Yea the Alpha def swayed me into purchasing on day one.

gamerfan09091640d ago

I've played some of the alpha and I'm still meh on it, but then again it's an alpha. Nothing in it blows me away. It's very polished, but nothing about it makes me go damn I have to get it day 1. Maybe the Beta will change my mind.
