Bungie’s new first-person shooter Destiny, is a decidedly lonely experience, but it shouldn't be. Destiny needs a better voice chat system.
I'd have so much more fun with Destiny if the voice chat system wasn't so flawed.
Exactly. If they r gonna b an mmo, and they r...YOU ARE BUNGIE AND A GREAT ONE FOR A LAUNCH!...gonna need chat box and proximity chat. We r gonna make clans and probably get some kinda hall so we need a chat box so we can shout and communicate w/ those friends we r not in a party W/. Maybe they don't realize just how important that is for community. And w/ the ease of keyboard use on ps4 and possible PC port, it only makes sense.
One would think they farmed out the voice work to Nintendo.lol
When I see lonely and voice chat in the same sentence I can't help but think of BF4, at least in 99% of the CQ matches I'm in. These strangely oblivious companies need to put an EASY way to quickly find other people that want to communicate and work as a team, it's a lot more fun that way.
Destiny is a bad game. Voice chat doesn't fix a bad game lol.
"Destiny is a bad game." Neither the scores nor the sales agree with you.
Destiny needs better gameplay first of all.
What fps game has better gameplay? Seriously. I'd love to know. It's gameplay and gunplay are amazing and it will only get better.
I haven't played it yet, but everyone I know who has loves it. I'm confused by all the hate.
loll gameplay is tight and perfect, you must have paws instead of hands.
I think you misread the reviews
Anyone still playing diablo 3 on ps4?
Love Diablo 3, bit don't mention it in a Destiny comment section. It's repetitive and had no content lol!
I didnt mean anything about it towards destiny i was just looking for a active section for a response.. Forums and other searches seem to be no help. Have you done bounties? The one on ruins of corvus when you beat adria, how the hell do you leave that arena? Same with the other guy in the bell tower.
First on a long list.So many things missing that could make it better.It's a shame really.Feels rushed.
No offense, but other than the lack of cutscenes, which are not prevalent in mmos, nothing about this game feels rushed.
So many simple things that you would expect from a so called AAA title are missing.3man squads,no voice chat outside your fireteam,lack of story,tacked on pvp,all been done better before from devs with less skill than bungie.Your obviously easily satisfied.The game lacks in quite a few departments.Simple features that should be there from day one,that you would expect to from a such a massive game.
I agree that its missing some stuff like more variety to weaponsand missions, and npcs out in the world, but tacked on pvp??? what? Also the no voice chat outside of your fire team, why? Id rather not have to hear every 12 year old idiot that walks buy. If I want to play with someone coop and chat, ill invite them to my fireteam.
I'm thinking Bungie will work on things like this. I trust they will add a lot to the game and update with patches on a regular basis.
Yeah, that's the point of an mmo.
usually paid sub mmos though
Oh boy more hate for a fun game.
On X1 it would be nice to have a working voice chat system let alone a better one. It's impossible to use game chat because not everyone can hear each other.
I'm wondering about this very thing. Are the bad reviews not for the PS4 version. Other than proximity chat, I have no problem conversing with other players on my team or in my party. Of course, I mostly game with people in my clan and we all have mics so that makes it tons easier.
I have the ps4 version and the fireteam chat has worked great for me, but I mostly just use ps4s party chat instead.
Destiny needs a text based chat as well just in case for those that are unable to put on a mic.
the ps4, xbo, and 360 all come with a mic and texting during a fps seems pointless.
Be that as it may ( I have my mic yes ) but still would be nice to see some sort of chat function for clan chats across worlds or at least a chat in the tower.
I'm using my mic & people are running away. : ( I don't think there is anything wrong with my voice though. I'm still trying to join a fire team. So far everything has been a SP experience. Now LV 10 That's a lot of killing for 1 person you know.
That is alot, What system are you playing on? I'm on ps4 I will join your fire team if you want.
PS4. My PSN id is cloudsend. ; D
I must admit that i didnt initially understood what was the issue , since from day one i solely played with friends and party chat ... but yeah other options are needed
To all of the people saying that Destiny is a bad game, what are you playing. I can understand if you're disappointed or if you believe it doesn't live up tot hrhype - but it by no means a "bad game".
It needs a basic chat for The Tower as well. I am surprised there isn't one. If they want to emulate an MMO with raids and strikes (mini raids, lets face it) then this should be a must.
The game in my opinion feels incomplete. I mean, don't get me wrong, I have fun playing Destiny and my friends as well. We're all currently around level 24. The gameplay and multiplayer are solid. The only thing that bothers me are the numbers. Only 3 in a Fireteam for stories and strikes. Only 3 stats (strength, intellect and discipline). Only 3 classes. Only 2 builds. The variety in guns and the skill trees are lacking too. The numbers are all too low in my opinion.
More doesn't mean better. WoW as example had 6 or 8 stats and for whatever class you played you ignored 50% because they wouldn't apply to your class. Each class had 3 skill trees with plenty of different options on how to spec and if you wanted to do more than casual play you had basically to pick one of two specific specs, because everything else wasn't great. Some games offer tons of different stats, but what it comes down to in the end is that if you play as example a mage you will just go for the stats for that and ignore all others or the other way around if you go for a meele. While it might look like you have a great amount of choice in the end if you want a class build that works you will ignore all other stats anyway so you are not really given that much choice and instead you have an illusion of choice since your freedom stops once you select a specific class. Sure you can go for strength and play a mage, but that will make your character very inefficient in the end.
I would say it needs a text chat. I'm against a voice chat outside of grouped teams. Fire teams and PvP teams should have a voice chat that works well, but there shouldn't be a general proximity voice chat in my opinion. Many MMOs don't offer one and in the ines that do nobody uses it.
just like i said Before and i got disagrees?. better voice chat system !
