Entertainment Fuse: So why in the world has Destiny fallen completely off for me after the beta? What changed in that few months away that has soured me on a very memorable alpha experience. The answer is nothing, and there lies the issue.
"till, I have hope that while each world has one map, there will be plenty to explore to keep the fatigue at bay, after all, Bungie knows how to make a video game." Article's like these annoy me to no end. Lure people in with a minority opinion based title then end the article with the biggest damage control you can think of. If you have an opinion stick to it.
Articles like this also fuel the idea that they AREN'T the minority... the only reason these articles exist is because they know theres a minority that want whatever we're talking about to fail, and they're likely to click on something that supports them. thats why we get articles that say one of the reasons to not get an x1 is the power brick (even though nobody really sees it), or one of the reasons to not get a ps4 is "no gamez" (even though theres plenty), or the thousands of other CRAPPY reasons to not support something thats pretty awesome. destiny will be pretty awesome... cant wait for the 9th! see yall in the crucible! (i really wish an article could be voted "click-bait" or "content-free" or "GARBAGE".)
It can be voted Click Bait. Select Lame, then write Clickbait in the description. Or Content free or Garbage.
LOL didn't ever look over there, cool! thanks!
My interest in Destiny is waning because Diablo on PS4
I lost interest in Destiny after playing the beta.
me too! :)
I need coop. My friend and I get tired of playing nothing but competitive so far in this generation. Diablo is something we'll get down the road. Destiny is the coop game I want. I will be all over Diablo at some point, it's just not the type of game I have the itch to play at the moment.
Personally, I can't wait. I've kept my hype meter quivering at 9.9 😀
Me too! destiny was fun, and the Co-op was pretty awesome! Really liked the MP also, it will probably be my go-to competitive shooter this year! come on, 9th!
I can't wait for the 9th! :D the only issue I had were enemy spawning, lack of customization and no split screen, but I'll cope if it doesn't make it in. We just need another good game to play with friends locally and destiny would fit that space perfectly (or treyarch could make zombies only CoD)
Yeh weird, I thought I was the only one. Considering I haven't had a good shooter in months, who knows maybe my interest will spark right back up, but honestly if I canceled my preorder I wouldn't be bothered.
My biggest concern with Destiny is that it will end up like Titanfall. Fever-pitch buzz/hype, huge pre-order numbers, the supposed '10-year' plan. Let me address that last one, because it's the most notable to me. Name a game that you're still playing from 10 years ago. WoW, maybe? Quake/Doom? Destiny is basically halo-borderlands. I'm not the first to say that and I won't be the last. 20 levels? C'mon, that'll take a week or two, tops.. then what. Get better loot? For what, ranked pvp? How long will THAT be interesting.. another week.. a month? What exactly does Bungie think is going to be compelling 9 years and 10 months later? I'm hoping/assuming when they discuss a '10-year plan', it means Destiny 2, 3... lord knows they put out enough Halo sequels and spinoffs. I'd be surprised if this current console generation lasts 10 years.
I feel like Destiny has a longer lifespan though, since it's both single player and multiplayer. Tintanfall got old after a while since you were doing the same thing.
The 10 year plan includes 4 full games and subsequent expansions. There will be new content with each game and expansion. They have also stated they will be supporting the game with new content everysingle day with their studios and servers manned 24/7 for the next 10 years. I really don't know how much more you're expecting here dude...
it's really really really dumb to compare Destiny to Titanfall. Titanfall is a pvp only shooter with bots. Nothing more. Destiny is pvp, pve, open/shared world exploring, sci-fi shooter with an insane amount of loot and gear and challenges to achieve. It's got co-op strikes and raids and single player story. So it's a BIT different than Titanfall. I understand the similarity in hype but c'mon. Also, level 20 is where the game really begins if you've been paying attention. And with more stuff to do and things to get why would you lose interest in a week or month as you alluded to? People play COD for much longer than that, and those haven't been good in years. I believe this will be the go to shooter until the next one comes out lol Plus, the 10 year plan is multiple games. So what FRanchises am I still playing after 10 years? Plenty. Halo's been what, 15? Destiny as a franchise has a long, long life ahead.
because you played it.....I'm sure a lot of people liked the games...but to me "bare bones" sums it up.
Like most every other big money game coming out it doesn't look like it's gonna be 'bad' but it's just not exciting. Of course it could just be me getting old and bitter, I'm 30 and have been gaming in some sense since I was able to hold the controller. Maybe I've finally just seen it all but I know up until this generation I've always been looking forward to something like, 'Wow, I wonder what it's like to actually PLAY that'. Nowadays most everything that isn't a low key Indie type game leaves me with an impression of 'Hmmmm, I kinda know how it's all gonna play but what the hell, it looks pretty and should pass some time'. The only future for me seems to be in the mid-level Indies. Stuff like No man's sky that look decent enough and have a decent idea behind them. Both the super retro styled 8bit Indies and the big name AAA games are doing nothing for me these days.
I feel the same, the only game I've seen recently that stands out is The Phantom Pain. But the big AAA are like big budget movies, all flare and no substance. I'd love if devs treated us like we're intelligent and give us great games that challenge us.
I enjoyed the Destiny beta. It had a nice Halo feel to it, but I did find it a little barren and slow. What really surprised me (and I know a lot of you will disagree) was how it felt going back to Titanfall after the Beta ended.... Titanfall just felt much more enjoyable! It is the complete polar opposite to Destiny. In destiny I would amble about for hours taking on (what felt like) the occasional foe here and there, whereas after 30 minutes of Titanfall, I needed a lie down! It's so crazy!
lol wtf? you're comparing exploring the open world in Destiny to the 6v6 pvp is Titanfall......ya, it's a bit different. But pvp in Destiny is obviously faster paced and more skill based than most shooters. I just got bored of Titanfall so fast with it being the same thing, plus the bots.....I mean, bots?
The bots are cannon fodder for the more inexperienced players. They have their place and make the game world feel more inhabited. I will buy destiny, but feel it will be a victim of its own hype. It has to be the most hyped game in history. They have been releasing details on a weekly basis for months.
@Gunstar75 it may feel like it's the most hyped but I'd say GTA V and even IV had more hype, and I think they're all justified in the hype. Titanfalls hype came from the early play session from journalists and such and jumped all over it, and yes for a quick play through and a few rounds it's a lot of fun. Destiny's hype though is coming from the fact that this is Bungie, one of the best and most well known studios out there. It's there first game since leaving MS, first multiplat game and added on that the Alpha and Beta were huge successes. So it's not like Titanfall or Watch-Dogs where the hype was a bit shallow. There's steam behind this hype train.
I'm suffering from Destiny withdrawal. 9/9 can't come soon enough!
Look at all the jrpg mommy's boys who suck at a real game. Everyone wants to play Destiny and no one REALLY wants to play Halo. At all. Really. This is just the HALO, BF, and COD guys whining because their games SUCK compared to ...... Destiny!!
