Game Idealist take a look at what gamers should and shouldn't worry about with the lack of pre-release Destiny reviews.
Pretty solid opinion article. Nice job.
All I want is for Destiny to be a more refined Defiance. If that is what Destiny is then I will be fine, judging from the beta Destiny will be that at least. As far as reviews are concerned, there isn't any reviewers that I trust anymore so I am not bothered that some corrupt game journalist won't be able to give me there useless opinion before the game comes out. Also, considering Destiny is basically a mmo the initial experience that the player has will not be the same as the one a month from now. Case in point, ff14 has evolved in amazing ways. So yeah I am fine buying a game that I think will be good without reading some corrupt game journalist review score. To those who feel that they really need a review of the game beforehand, I say wait and watch people play the game on Twitch or some streaming website first. Check out some streaming footage of the game and wait a week to decide if the game is for you or not. If anything, you wont miss much as their is bound to be server issues initially.
Quite honestly.. I think twitch removes the need for reviews entirely. Why listen to anyone's opinion? Watch the game for yourself.
^ I think both complement each other. You see the micro and the macro pictures by the streams and the reviews.
@n4rc if I watch the game while it's being played then that game is spoiled to me. I rather have written reviews.
* Trying to review this game without it being "Live", is like trying to review New York City, minus all the people. New York IS the people, and so it's the a large majority of the experience of this game. * The things I could see them complaining about are the very things that would be "fixed" if they just waited until tomorrow to play this game and then review it.
I just wanted to say I like that analogy
I'm not worrying because there's no way this game won't be amazing
I'm not worried because they gave us a Alpha and a Beta to try out before we buy. I'm still on the fence but ill let "destiny" work its path, and if that path is at a best buy on Tuesday, well so be it...LOL
Very similar to GTA V I guess. I mean that game received the reviews also on monday and they were very good. I think Destiny will be good as well. And even if it don't hit the 90s it will certainly receive highly critical appraise in the high 80s. But I still think this game will do 90+ and receive a few GOTY awards.
Well I am not sure what to think of this, but I don't recall anyone releasing a statement like before a launch. http://www.gamespot.com/art...
im worried for the fact that there were some sites even gamestop who had some pretty concerning things that they experienced when playing the beta. other people also brought up concerns. lack of reviews is kinda disappointed. this could turn out to be another watch dogs. lots of hype but ends up mediocre.
Hmm as far as I know people who played the beta really liked the game. I am one of them
Definitely not... We got to review this game in the form of alpha and beta... Overall reception was superbly positive... Watch dogs on the other hand.... Well we all know how that went
"this could turn out to be another watch dogs" lol are you serious? That game was basically a bait and switch that people got to try out towards the end. We have had two play test so far for Destiny, and both have been superb
Well I actually played the beta so.....
I don't think you should ever "worry" about videogames
Not worried what so ever! I thought highly of the alpha and beta can't wait!!
my opinion? all you have to do is wait a day, a single day, if its good then buy the hell out of it because im 100% itll be in stock :)
Or download it if for some reason someone can't find one in a store (I doubt it will be fully sold out)
Not worried at all, the beta was great. Much rather have gameplay betas than early reviews.
Not worried loved the beta, game will be good.....
They don't need early reviews to market the game
I can't wait to win that 20 bucks when you guys flip out about how it was "overhyped" like you do with every big game release.
im sure a bunch of people will, but that happens with nearly any game.
I already played the beta and I'm convinced. Don't need any review.
I'm not worried since I have business to attend to and I'm patient, sometimes, I'll see how it goes for the guinea pigs ;).
I hate articles like this,trying to tell us how we should and shouldn't feel.Played the beta,loved it.Preordered.End of.Not clicking these pathetic websites.
Anyone that played alpha or beta will get the jist of this game and if not you've got 7 days to try it out then return it to ebgames if you dont like it.
does need solid 8.5 to 9s across the board tho
