The Destiny Beta was brilliant, but it has me worried…

VGU writes "Over the last week, pretty much anyone with a games console has been playing the beta for Destiny, the latest project from Halo creators Bungie. Expectations were high and most people have come away from the beta with those expectations met.

Personally, I have to be honest and say that I wasn’t particularly hyped for Destiny due to my utter loathing of the Borderlands series. Destiny just looked like Borderlands with a Halo skin and that was certainly not my cup of tea. Thankfully, Destiny turned out to be so much more than that." (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I definitely agree with the hype point. Destiny seems to be so hyped up as this 'next step in gaming' that it can't possibly live up to. Plus, I doubt its longevity. If Bungie don't update it regularly, consider it sunk.

well i dont think that many people are thinking its going to really change the gaming landscape, because its not really innovating that much, its just a really good game that is taking the best parts of many other games and combining them smoothly into a fine package.

I for one am REALLY looking forward to it, but i still see it as just another game doing its own thing, kind of like Evolve

Same hype just like Watch dogs. But this time we have actually get a taste of the game. AND its ok not perfect but ok. There is much more better titles coming soon but this will keeps me buzy until oct/nov.

But what a game if its supported with constant, regular dlc! And bungie will likely focus on destiny as it did halo.

This game gets hype because everyone loves a game that can fit to anyones play style. Bungie set up open world areas to just roam around looking at the amazing landscape you're in and killing dregs with one shot headshots. And if you're a hardcore enthusiast of the game you are going dive deep into the game and love every bit of what bungie has developed.

I honestly didn't notice the hype... Watch dogs was way way way more hyped... Yea people talked about destiny a lot... But once they played the alpha/beta, people's interest soared... TThere's a difference between unwarranted hype (watch dogs) and hype from a game people have actually played

Also, a little strange the writer loathes borderlands but likes... Borderlands goes much deeper with the content (from what we've seen as of yet... Which was only an alpha/beta)

I keep seeing these websites review this as a DEMO when it's a B-E-T-A! No one knows how much stuff was taken out of Old Russia, or areas blocked off. No one knows if Old Russia is going to be identical to the beta or if the full release will have meaningful side missions and other things to do. It's a beta, they gave you a BETA BUILD so they test functions/mechanics/server related issues/etc. This is not a demo in any means. It was a solid beta in the terms of content, but still, a BETA. Bungie proved themselves with the Halo series, their is no way we are going to be deprived of content or let down on that front.

I find it funny, it's these type of gaming sites where these types of authors create all this hype. The play the beta and they then say "what's all the hype about?" I wish people would stop hyping everything like it's the second coming. The game is a blast and I can't wait for September.

Bungie should have used the voice of the Robot from borderlands than the boring craptacular boring voice they have for the ghost.

Borderlands was a very cool game. Loved it. Although at times it felt like I was shooting up in a trailer park. heh.

This game looks to be very good in terms of leveling up. I would much rather play in this universe than borderlands.
