Destiny is now available across the retail market and digitally. So far the press reactions towards the game has been some sort of a mixed bag but regardless, the game has gone on to do $500 million in business already.
Didn't watch. It's not perfect but, Destiny is fun as hell.
Why did you come here to comment that? Your comment is completely unrelated to the article or video, at all. The video is pretty funny, as alot of developers have said that about their games.
They disagreed with you. How is that immature?
I totally agree with you, the game is really fun, and playing with friends make it even better. Can't wait for the raids on tuesday!
@Neixus: I'm not defending Destiny out of no where, but i see alot of hate surrounding this game that just keeps me wondering, and yes i know it's not the best game ever made but the game is amazing, solid and most of all it's absolutely fun, it has its flaws and downs but it still fun to play especially with friends, i mean isn't that the point of video games?, to have fun and enjoy it with friends. And yes maybe the game was hyped up by the media and the developers, but this is something we consumers should pay attention to, i mean what do you expect them to do in order to reach for bigger audience and to sell more copies for a new ip, we consumers should maintain our hype until the game release and see for ourselves if the game is worth buying or not through videos and other buyers and then you decide if the game is for you or not. As for Destiny, my expectations was low until i tried the beta and then i decided to get it because it is fun and that is all i need.
Agreed. I don't see much wrong with it except that it's a pretty simple shooter but it's still fun so I have no problem with that.
The only problem seems that it's not an Xbox exclusive. I wonder how it would have been reviewed if it was?
Yeah, right because Xbox exclusives past gen or this gen are all rated 10/10...pfft, you sound even more ridiculous when the reality is coming off last gen ps3 had more higher rated exclusives. I'm a X1 fan and I think Ryse was reviewed very harshly as it still one my fave games this gen but I've also been pretty vocal that Destiny is being scrutinized to death due to unfair expectations place upon it to be some revolutionary next gen game. It's not, but its a really good game. You see the truth is some games regardless of exclusivity WILL be harshly judge based on our own opinion/bias and the general media expectations but fanboys will always cherry pick specific games to reinforce their hive-minded conspiracy theories because it helps them sleep better to assume any opinion different than there's has to be part of some evil plot to tarnish their brand of choice rather than rational idea that, some or alot of reviewers didn't like the game...Again I do think reviewers are being a bit overly critical but not for some stupid conspiracy reasons, they just had far too great expectations which frankly I never saw 1 trailer, 1 gameplay vid, or 1 technical spec breakdown where I thought WOW Destiny is a game changer so other than PR talk and the fanboy hype media the SENSIBLE MEDIA/reviewers should have just expected it to be somewhere between at least a solid game a good game likely or fingers crossed a great game at best, seems most reviews even the low ones acknowledge its mostly a good game, which I think rates a 7.5-8 out of 10; but hey that's just my opinion.
Whelp, I just wasted 30 seconds of my life.
Probably another 5 minutes to compose that sentence to share with us.
basically they oversold the game but you knew that from playing beta.
I expected so much more than the beta offered is the thing. Turns out the beta is all there is.
most people should know now if they didn't already that beta=demo pretty much. what you see in the beta is what the game is just polished
While I love Destiny I'll have to agree with this video. When I got to the Moon and did Patrol mission my Ghost told me "now you can go anywhere you want." so I looked around and saw a vast landscape behind me. I started walking and 10 feet later "TURN BACK" appeared on my screen with a countdown timer which ended my life when it got to zero. It was kinda depressing.
Agreed I hope bungie releases free planets as dlc and charge for new story content
Well there's bound to be limitations for paritys sake when you're developing for old and new generations. People seem to be picking apart any tiny thing they can it seems. Or peoples expectations were unrealistic to begin with. Either way this video was funny as hell!
reminds me of halo, get to the edge, jump, die. very pretty scenery though.lol
Is it so hard to not BS? Really? I get Ubisoft. Consoles weren't as powerful as you thought but really bungie?
His quote is slightly out of context and muddied up with PR speak, "If you ran out there" being the key part. I think a key part is missing from that sentence "if YOU COULD run out there" "IF" as in, "you can't run out there but it's all real geometry, is what I'm saying, not a 2d backdrop, isnt that cool? However I'm under PR oath to make it sound liek you actually can because POW BANG SHAZOW!". I've heard staten use similar PR gobbledy gook for previous Halo titles when discussing their scenic views. I've heard a lot of devs use this line actually. I wish devs would stop speaking for the laymen and just discuss the actual method in their design instead of the PR crap to try and make their vidocs "pop". Sadly thats never going to happen outside of Dev talk seminars for other devs.
yeah wii u isn't as powerful as they thought it was
ahah that was funny.
It should be all playable terrain with all time and money spent on this game
If it was playable the the same way it currently plays itd be boring
As much as I like everything Bungie does, they do say things that don't always come to be. I used to regularly read their Bungie update and think in awe what they'd described but the end result wasn't what appeared suggested from these. They're mostly hit more than miss with what they do but often I think they miss things souring the overall experience Then again I'm one of those that still thinks Halo1 is their finest work anyway and still much more of a pure form of their brilliance in a way that they never managed to repeat- aside from Halo2's multiplayer of course
Destiny sucks, only 4 small planets, WTF ?
Molyneux... is that you?
Open world? Sory when I read stuff saying that im thinking skyrim open world. Thiy should make it so you can go into town (not a tower) and make the AI feel more alive and ext....
Well where exactly do you want the game to end? I don't understand. Obviously it can't go on forever and ever. It's a game not Google Maps.
grouundlessvahn, is the name of youtube channel. with that being said, these reviews all over the place, i don't play alot of firstperson games however i love destiny. reviews latey been given good games bad reviews, and bad games good reviews. can't trust what someone else say just give the a try. are you really going to let people tell you what to buy
I got destiny on launch,I'm practically stayed indoors the whole weekend..stayed late during weekdays....I love destiny..make destiny 2..let reviewers give it a solod 2/10 I'd still get it n enjoy it as hell.I ve lost my trust in reviewers n some 2010 born gamers...they complain about everthying...i miss the days when i came to know about a game when i saw ot on a friends house,got it as a present or found in in the store.....pah reviewers
And fuck to anyone who corrects my grammar,punctuation or typo
Awesome comment!lol Agree
It's not an open world game. You should have found that out in the beta. There are also invisible walls. I love the game and this video was a bit funny.
Go jump off a cliff and see what happens.
This video says who cares about game play I don't I just want to run anywhere and do nothing
Bungie brought the expectations and subsequent disappointment on themselves with stuff like that. Destiny can be summed up by this: its OK.
