If you’re on Facebook or Twitter then you know that nearly everyone has been playing and loving the Destiny Alpha. Though the portion of the game that’s in the alpha is sizable, there is a lot more to it and some secret areas have been found.
I had to stop playing b/c I was getting hooked and despite knowing it was an alpha, part of me hoped I could just find ways to keep playing. The wait will be terrible. I dont know if I will put myself through this again in July.
I know exactly how you feel. Dont think I can have my heart broken twice over destiny in the space of a month, september feels so far away too. I'm torn!
Me and some buddies tried climbing that giant tree at The Tower to see if we could get a peek over the wall lol. Then we tried finding ways to get over it. Sadly we failed. Did anyone else go through the area where they have shown most of the gameplay videos of Old Russia? Edit: http://www.youtube.com/watc... This area. No enemies came up though.
I went to old Russia a few times but there were never any enemies there. I found all the secret areas mentioned in the article plus some smaller ones not mentioned.
I've found all of these areas as well, plus I've been reviving a ton of those guide things (your companion orb) all over the place (so far at least one in every area), what do they do?
@icanplaygames2 They just unlock grimoires as far as I can tell which yuou can check out on alpha.bungie.net but this is bungie after all... anyone know if you find them all, then walk a lap backwards through all of old russia, then hopscotch across all those rusted cars, before hitting a complex button combination, does it unlock a skull?! Classic Bungie.
I know because I feel the same way, but at the same time I won't be able to wait knowing that other people are enjoying the beta. This is the first game I've played that had a real next-gen feel to it. Crazy ambitious, and after playing this Alpha I think Bungie may well have made the most robust well realized FPS ever.... Who would've thought that Halo,Mass Effect and MMO gameplay would mix so damn good.
I'm still on the fence despite putting a lot of hours into the alpha and maxing out all 3 classes. The one aspect I just can't get over is how easy the gun play is. I shouldn't be able to master 6-8 weapons in just a few hours such that it's rare that I don't get a head shot. I normally give up on a game once it's gotten too easy and I feel like I'm already there.
Come on mate.. Your on the fence because you think it's going to be too easy after head shotting level 6 enemies all day? Thats like me saying I am not sure about getting skyrim because I tried a demo and the only enemies were mud crabs and I could one hit everything. you really going to judge the game off such a limited experience?
Not only is it sizable its freakin huge. I think a cool touch is not giving the player a world map. Makes the exploration fun and mysterious.
At first I thought it was stupid, but yeah, I agree. The more I played it the more of an explorer I started to feel like.
I didn't find all those areas but I did find the area from the first demo. It felt so awesome finding out it was there. Later I led a couple of my friends there and the whole time we were talking about how amazing the Alpha had been. The fact that it is just a small part of the full game and yet it had so many areas in it and so much to do was mind-blowing. I really cannot wait for the beta just to see what else is added and I know once the full game hits I will be spending most of my gaming time with this game. I am even looking forward to playing more of the PvP and I have been focusing more on SP games lately because I got so tired of the same MP stuff in other shooters.
All I can say is that I miss the game already and cant wait till final release. Destiny was barely on my radar but after playing nonstop all weekend on a damn Alpha im beyond hyped for this game.
