One gamer’s thoughts on a Bungie classic and their newest title.
I fricking LOVE Reach, and is Bungie's masterpiece in my view. I havent played Destiny yet, as im getting an Xbox One next year. But i do share your love of Reach and its lore/story.
Reach was my favorite Halo game hands down. Loved the story. Playing Destiny now, it's pretty good. Am enjoying it, but not sure if it will keep my interest long term. We shall see what sorts of things there are to do once I beat the campaign.
I haven't played Reach for a while but I'd agree it's my favourite Halo. As for Destiny it's the only new gen game I'm interested in but before I shell out for a PS4 I want to see where they go with it in terms of new content and what the timeline is going to be between games, if it's going to be a yearly thing or have major expansions like an MMO.
I imagine it'll do what DC Universe is doing in which they put out paid expansions. Everyone can still play together, but you simply can't go to the new areas, or get the newest gear without buying said expansion.
i dont see why people are expressing distaste for destinys dlc, when they're perfectly happy buying season passes for BF, COD, freaking assassins creed even! and for BF and COD, those are just map packs. bungie said their dlc will be for the co-op AND mp side. it looks like there will be a few expansions a year, with new (lighter) content added weekly... sounds good to me! personally ive been having a blast with destiny, along with everybody i know who bought it. i'll cya in the crucible if you pick it up later!
Those Halo/Bungie days are LONG gone and they ain't never coming back. That era is over my friends.
Says the guy with the Killzone avatar lol. Halo is in a class of its own mate. There is a pile of corpses for the various pretenders to the throne that tried to usurp the throne (one of those games I'm sure you are aware of :D ). Mind you, it isn't the force it once was (and that's inevitable really) but it's not over yet for Halo. Oh no.
"Halo is in a class of its own mate. There is a pile of corpses for the various pretenders to the throne that tried to usurp the throne (one of those games I'm sure you are aware of :D ). " With killzone being one of those corpses...
In a few days Reach will be available through Games with Gold on 360... I played the demo when I couldn't get into Destiny Beta and was suprised at how silky-smooth the gunplay felt (never really played a Halo before, but I enjoyed the Anime). Also, it had actual, proper space combat! THAT was a suprise, especially after hearing that Destiny did not. So yeah, I'm looking foward to playing it. I like the whole 'team' dynamic, and it'll serve as a good taster for that Master-Chief Collection everyone is frothing over...
@poppinslops You are in for a treat.Halo reach was definitely a great farewell to hal. Inbox me if you need a wingman, Ill send you my gamertag..only a select few on N4G ever get that privalege! lol. I still have my X360 and all my games, even though I have moved on to XB1.And destiny has certainly left me frothing for some halo action. And once you have played a few rounds of MP with me and some of my boys. You wont accept less from a shooter ever again ;). It also improves your skill at other FPS, in a crazy way.
Reach beats the piss out of Destiny, no contest. Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying Destiny, but all of it's features are so underdeveloped in comparison with Reach, or even Halo 3 for that matter.
"Bungie let me be a lady Spartan and that meant so much to me. I’ve said in depth how important representation is and being able to insert myself as my own character in a franchise I loved was so amazing." After reading this I immediately knew this was written by a dude. "Video games are my escape from a very flawed world and having to pretend to be a guy in real life is exhausting enough." And there it is. My 1st guess was 42 year old fat pedofile living in Mom's basement, but I guess confused Emo teen works too.
