PS4Daily: "Destiny is on everyone's mind these days. Is it the shooter we need?"
Really don't know if it's the one we need but it's definitely the one I want. That game is mad fun.
yeah I love it
I think your thoughts on this are pretty sound. I worry about the longevity of the game as well. I think we all hope it's going to be the game we need, but there is so much hype it's hard to really know till it's been a few months.
I actually think its being built with longevity in mind...thats the point. Now, longevity always depends on how much ppl enjoy the game...but its being made to entice ppl to go after rewards that will require a time investment. Add PvP and there will be plenty to do. The question is, like many mmo's. Can it create a community that continually coaxes ppl back each and every time new content releases?
Well that's sort of his/my point. Although it may unfold better down the line (10 yr plan) but is it going to be that enthralling? Will we just wade through it? So far all I know is that we are to become legend. That we have been almost made extinct and that this is our last chance sort of thing. Without a character protagonist it could lack for some.
I feel what u r saying. But i have to ask, i have watched the feeds and all i saw was shoot, loot, customise, then repeat. Then to top it all off no real story mode to enjoy. I have a problem with that because i love a good story and Bungie is in my eyes a hell of a story teller. I felt the same way with Titanfall's so called campaign. I get to play in a couple of days but the feeds i'v seen haven't shown me that i need Destiny. This will be the first Bungie game that has me not that excited. Not trying to be funny, just looking for some other opinions about it, maybe im just not seeing it! Check my history. Gamertag=SHINROCK
I am excited more for the game play than the story at this point. So I can relate. That could be a weird balance. Is it both story and gameplay? I think that's the question we are all waiting to find out. I am excited but not as much as I thought I would be.
Ah, you should play it. There is a story but it's the beta so obviously you won't see much. For me the explore missions are the best part.
The player count in each of Destinys game modes trouble me. 3 player co-op is ok, but the count in the other MP modes are troubling imo.
as good as destiny can be and as much as i like FPS online MP, a major part seem missing, we need great FPS campaigns games like half life 1/2, perfect dark/ge007, Quake 1/2, time splitters, DOOM(can't wait for the gameplay), bioshock, turok 1/2, halo 1/CoD 4(those two are the best in their style), The World is Not Enough etc....
Time Splitters is all about mp though, strange choice there.
It's not the shooter we need, but the one we deserve.
If you didn't do it, I was going to. Well done.
I came just to read someone write this.
It's a good shooter for non casuals. I didn't like it much during the alpha but I'm starting to like it more now that I'm playing it more. I'm glad is not being hyped up as "the next big thing".
Played it on PS3 & PS4... Stunning for a beta on PS4! It's pretty sweet! Looks and plays so well. Cannot wait to see what the retail version brings to the table.
I'm not talking about hype here, but after briefly allowing myself to play the beta(my buddy didn't want anything spoiled so I was going solo), Destiny is exactly what I wanted it to be. Other games have sounded like this, and time and time again I was left disappointed. I haven't played a Bungie game since the LAN parties an old friend of mine used to have for The first Halo game. Having only played story mission/grinding until I got my super(to help myself decide which class I'll be when the game launches), I can say without a shadow of a doubt, Destiny is the real deal. I won't be playing the beta beyond what I've already played. Also I cannot discuss *this with my buddy, out of respect for his wishes. But dang, all you people out there that have played it know what I'm feeling. It's not hype anymore, it's genuine excitement.
Exactly, I went into alpha just to kind of check it out, and wasn't expecting much. But when Alpha was over, it was a long wait for beta. People are super excited about this game.
The fact that destiny is online only will hinder sales in some countries
I don't think so....finally played some MP in the beta didn't play in the alpha....but now I can see why ppl say it is a lot like halo because it is....but to me it's similar to when ppl said titanfall was just call of duty with mechs (which it's not)....it's like gamers are searching for a new FPS experience that is different but everything has already been done...I feel the game is very polished and very fun but for some reason it's just not for me....ima huge MP shooter fan....but destiny just doesn't do it for me...I probably will continue to play it to see if I like it more but right now I feel it's good but just not for me....but hey I felt the same way when I first tried bf4....I hated the game but now I kinda enjoy it especially since they fixed all the bugs
No, the Shooter we need isn't releasing before 1 - 2 years currently.
Remains to be seen. So far not too impressed with the game. It does everything well just not groundbreaking or new. It's a good game but not seeing a great game. Will wait for reviews of full game before purchasing.
Fully agree JB.
This is one of those things that I feel we are going to have to rely mostly on the experience of our friends/company to help push it along. However we may also have to play the whole thing through in order to know. So I will give it a fair shot, but I think we are on the same page.
Destiny is the shooter PS4 needs, while Halo compilation is the shooter Xbox One deserves. True statment.
I think I'll take both Halo compilation and Destiny....oh and halo 5 as well, wow I'm so satisfied.
Maybe some people needs these kind of games but personally I think we would need more like S.T.A.L.K.E.R kind of "FPS" games. Not just shooting, grinding, and making simple tasks with heavy hand holding. As the guy says in video he likes that items are easy to find and get. It is pretty much opposite what I would like to have. I think it would be much more interesting to have games with complex game play, discover world with the map you have drawn to paper with pen, etc. I feel I'm way too old for these kind of games already (35). Unfortunately.
Okay, I can go with it not being a good fit for you, but I don't think age has much to do with it, I'm older than you, and still find the game mad fun. Destiny has plenty off the beaten path, it's just typically occupied by ??lvl baddies.
Got another Beta code for anyone interested (PS4, America) HF2C-MBNM-F4PK
No it is not. The game is very dull and boring from what I played. The PvP is boring, the maps are too big, vehicles everywhere, and no one plays the objective. This is just a worse version of Halo in MMo form. I believe this game's hype will be the downfall of this game. Destiny was fun at first but than it felt the same, and will die very fast I believe (like Titanfall).
I have been playing it on PS3 and there are always people on my team capturing objective points, the maps are well sized for 12 players (moon has some size however the objectives are very close) and fairly well layed out, and I find the PvP pretty fun even though Im rolling solo until Xbone beta. I think the story and missions are bland however, but the gameplay is superb. The game could use a in game map and better tutorial though who knows the final game might. The difficult of the last mission was unfair but everything else had a pretty good balance and the AI seemed pretty good. I look forward to the final game but I think people may end of disappointed. I see a lot of people loving it or just hating it. The biggest problem I have is it will lack the community content of Halo and probably game mode variety it provides due to low player count only, which is actually something I think is wrong with TF. Its attempt at being an MMO almost seems like a limiting factor for custom games. At the end of the day it I can't help but wonder how is the game going to be popular a while because as of now I don't see it
I think Destiny is a step in the right direction... after playing COD for far to many years... Destiny is like a breath of fresh air... lets all see how it pans out... but looking good so far... keep up the good work Bungie...
Not necessarily the right direction. It is interesting how the online works but I don't want to see others attempt the same formula
Cancilling pre order after playing beta.. same old same
