I know it’s only a Beta. We’ve only received a small piece of the pie but it’s so reassuring that I wouldn’t be surprised if pre-orders take a dramatic hike between now and the end of August.
You make that determination despite: 1. It actually coming out yet. 2. It only being eight months in the generation so far. 3. Tough competition from CoD, Rainbow 6, Halo, Evolve, Battlefield says this competition is wide open. But I'm loving this Beta nonetheless and this generation is going to have some really great shooters.
It's polished as hell, the game when it launches will be even better.
Rainbow Six won't be for a while. COD is COD. Halo is a ways out. Battlefield Hardline is just a BF4 expansion pack and nothing more. When a BETA is competing with finalized games, you can only assume the final game is going to be amazing.
you sir, win the comments.
I'm reserved to call this game amazing but I understand your point. This game is getting much hype and I'm not saying that isn't good but that same thing happened with Watch Dogs. People get super excited their expectations are too high and they get disappointed. Not saying the same will happen with Destiny but I tend to not hype games too early.
Tbh this beta feels lika finished game performance and glitch wise, which is the opposite of bf4 release like it or not.
My exact thoughts. We haven't even reached a full year of the generation (sorry Ninty), and this will be the best, huh? I hope not. I'd like to think that something that hasn't even been announced yet will come along and blow us away further in the cycle. Or Halo 5.
why halo 5? last time i checked halo 4 wasn't anything special
Beta capped at level 8 but im having a huge blast with it. Don't know if its a day one for me, have to see what else they do with this game
The max cap for the full game, from what i've read, is level 20.. I'd expect Bungie to raise it as the years go on considering it's planned to be supported for a decade...
Seriously? but is it level 20 with tiers? That seems awfully short, what is gonna keep us from going elsewhere?
The cap is 20 but you can continue to lvl up with things called motes of light
I wish the character customization was deeper but the models look fantastic, especially the female models ;) Def picking this baby up, i even like the crucible part
I am loving but I really wish it was 60 fps. I would rather have 720p then 1080p in competitive shooter (primarily this genre for me at least) if it means 60 fps.
That would have been icing on the cake but its still so gorgeous
I am playing on PS3 until Xbone beta and it does not look bad just blurry and jaggy. I just wish it was 60 fps.
Agreed and I usually hate fps
why do u hate'em?
cause there boring and usually all about pvp mp
Oh man...if this is the premire shooter then the gen is in trouble.....30fps? Don't get me wrong, I've been playing the beta a lot. But the premire shooter for the gen? Let's see what Mass Effect 4 does before we go jumping to conclusions
You think ME4 will have a online portion that rivals Destiny's?
its not about the "online" portion. Its the "gameplay" Destiny has a level cap of 20, and feels very similar to games we've played before. Mass Effect is going to have far more powers, classes, abilties, and better story. I just want the game to come out first before we claim what the definitve shooter of the gen will be. Not to mention, Splatoon looks really cool to. And it is far more innovative from a gameplay standpoint.
Mass effect 4 is a RPG with shooter elements. Destiny is a RPGshooter
Mass Effect is an RPG TPS Destiny is an MMO FPS
If Mass Affect 4 is a shooter there will be hell to pay.
Agreed. Mass effect 3 was leaning that way though unfortunately.
Shooter?this is an mmo.That just tells how this game is generic for my tastes
Lol bro play the beta, it's awesome even for a mmo
A game can be more than one genre, you know...Ever heard of an action/rpg, shooter/rpg, action/platformer, shooter/mmo? I guess all of those are generic by your standards.
It needs to ditch the auto-aim assist BS. Then I'll consider it a serious shooter.
that doesnt bother me, it doesn't make it any less fun imo
The auto aim is ridiculously strong, if an enemy moves it drags my aim along with them. Depending on the gun I'm anywhere from 50-75% headshots. It shouldn't be this easy with so little practice.
I haven't tried it yet, but i've seen some footage, i don't think it'll be the top shooter for me, i just dislike sci-fi futuristic space shooters in general, the shooter i'm lookig forward to right now is the new Rainbow Six game .
i get what yu mean but seeing footage doesnt say the whole story man
I like what i have played but i really,really hope they fix the frame-pacing because its ruining my enjoyment by causing stuttering.Its very odd that Bungie havent yet fix this from the Alfa to the Beta hope the final release dont come with this problem;if it comes with it i will pass because i just cant stand this technical hipcut.
what games are you playing right now? all games have problems like these, its pretty common.
Sorry but its not pretty common!The frame-pacing problem in Destiny is annoying and very discernable,even more discernable because the game framerate target is only 30fps.Right now im playing Wolfenstein:NW ps4 and i dont see any stuttering..yes the game runs at 60fps but im also playing Halo 4 on the Xbox360 and that game target is 30fps and i cant see any stuttering too.Stuttering cause by frame-pacing like the one seen on Destiny should be a priority fix,because its annoying and break immersion because the game dont feel smooth when its stuttering, some people probably can handle i cant.
You realise its the beta right...making a scene by judging unreleased products.
Its a beta thats the reason it should not have this kind of problem!This is the last time possible buyers have the chance of testing a game they probably want to buy,and since 90% of the time a Beta reflects the finnish product this problem with frame pacing should not be in it!
IT'S NOT OUT YET! But yes, it could be.
your right, some pople crazy saying this game is as good as it is with it only being in beta. i remember playing resistance 3 beta and thinking it was the greatest mp ever and the game came out and sucked donkey balls. we should hold out but i still think this will be a 8/10 game.
The Earth russia missions is so boring. I really hope in the single player there is more too do. I want a great storymode for singleplayer and a great multiplayer experience. And i hate that i must have a fking ps plus to challenge other titans out there in pvp. Stupid
I have my doubts. I went to my cousin's house and watched him play the alpha; it was so boring I was falling asleep and had to leave. I wasn't tired before I arrived, and he wasn't just standing around doing nothing; he was speed biking around, fighting, and doing a mission (his class is Warlock if curious). This game just isn't interesting to me. I suspect a lot of this game is built on hype as it can blind people to the true worth of a game. A lot of what I hear is, "This reminds me of Halo" & "This reminds me of Borderlands," both quality shooter franchises but what this also says is that "Destiny" is just an amalgamation of good elements pioneered by others. That's not a bad thing, it's just unoriginal. I prefer to hold off for "No Man's Sky," that, I predict, will be the epic sci-fi game this generation and may be 'the' game this generation. "Destiny" I see selling well due to hype out the gate; after several months its sales will plateau, a year in sales will decrease, and after 2 years it will be forgotten. But "No Man's Sky," while starting relatively much slower will only grow bigger, being comparable to only the likes of "Mirror Moon (Ouya)" that I'm aware of.
