Hardcore Gamer: Destiny is a great game, but if you have sixty hard-earned American dollars in your pocket and a shiny new PlayStation 4, you can certainly get more value elsewhere.
Destiny isn't an exclusive...
No one said that it was....
And most people are probably playing it on PS4...
Destiny's presence is strongest on PS4. There is also the white PS4 Destiny bundle. Got one on launch day and I'm quite happy with the system so far. :)
Most are implying it is and the article as well as the tags are attempting to play it off as it is.
I think the title should also apply to xbox owners as well since it is the same game and a lot of people on both sides are not too thrill with the game, myself inclused. Already traded my Destiny copy for store credit for Forza Horizon 2..that is what I'll be spending my money on.
Played Destiny for 8 hours today. Most likely I'm going to squeeze out another mission or 2 before I hit the rack since I have no work tomorrow. I got mine for $40 but would've gladly paid full freight. I'm addicted to this game like I haven't been in ages. It is without question my favorite game so far this generation. All of my friends are loving this game and both of my friends list are filled with people playing it. It's pretty much all I see my friends playing on both consoles since it was released. So opinions definitely vary. I don't know one gamer that bought Destiny that is having a good time with it. It's one of those games, at least for me, that you want to call out of work to play. One of those games that when you're not playing it you're thinking about playing it. I can easily see myself putting a couple to few hundred hours into this game.
[email protected] isn't strong enough yet.
@S_D_F_Repellent Not really because if you actually bothered to look at the article, not all of the games he listed are available on the Xbox One. Derp.
The article lists child of light.....I thought it was a side scrolling game because every time I saw it advertised, there was side scrolling, and platforming. Then I see this article, and it says its a TURN BASED RPGS? (as in not action) what! I peed my pants. Then watched it on youtube, same misleading crap, then I find a battle clip, and it was a turn based RPG, with melodramatic music, and everything! Had I known that (thanks marketing for emphasizing the action, and platforming (sarcasm)) I would have bought it day one. First I'm going to see if disc replay, or gamestop has it for 15-20$, or less. If not I will come home, and download it for $15 bucks! Hurray!
^ This dude is trying to hard.
Lol, the people that disagreed... Do they think it is...? o_o
The article never said it was an exclusive, it's just a piece aimed at at PS4 owners.
@ValKilmer - I get that, but I just found the disagrees kind of funny because his statement wasn't wrong.
The main reason I mentioned that is because I was considering reporting the submission suggesting to add the Xbox 360, PS3 and Xbox One tags because regardless of what the author wants the readers to think Destiny remains a multiplatform game.
Right now, imo, if u like great fps play and loot hunting, there is no better way. I love ff14 and diablo 3 UEE, but Destiny has me so addicted right now. If it grows just right, I'll b hooked in a bad way.
I plan on picking it up in time. I don't want to wait too long, and be really far behind the curve. I broke my leg, and right before doing so had spent close to $300.00 paying off my preorders, so my money was looking a little funny. I decided to only buy one game this month, and went with Metro Redux. I definitely want to pick Destiny up along with my preorders in the first week of October, but with the emphasis on leveling up gear and the role that I've heard that plays in the Crucible I hope that I'm not too far behind. I don't fully understand how the full game works, but it seems as though if you don't jump in pretty quickly you'll find yourself struggling to keep your head above the water in PvP. For those that have played it, am I looking at a daunting task if I choose to jump in in a few weeks?
No one said that but plays perfectly fine on the one.
I paid €60 for Destiny on PS4 and i have got like 100+ hours on it. For that kind of money i would say it's a pretty good buy!
Amen dude. After about 50 hours in, I went on N4G and saw all these criticisms about the game, scratched my head, and went back to it. I'm really loving this game. The replay value is incredible.
Same here. Personal hygiene is taking hits :(
lol...yeah and damn stomach growling every other 6 hours wanting food in it or something.
Hopefully a good blow to internet reviews/critics that think they can make or break a game and reviews to go back to their primary role as to inform readers and help them make THEIR own opinion instead of just be essays pushing reviewers opinions
Or even worse, essays pushing publishers products (for a fee). After seeing the destiny review I've completely lost faith in reviews, it was childish of them to get so angry over no review copy lol
Agree, and after Gamergate I don't know how many blows mainstream video game journalism can take and still stand up as relevant.
Child of Light is pretty good but I had just play Stick of Truth prior to trying it and found it (child of light) a bit too slow.
How about keeping the opinion to yourself and let me worry about what I decide to spend my money on.
Well said sir
Anyone who follow gaming news knows almost everything about the upcoming and current games . So people in this site don't need articles like these. They know what they like even before the games released.
I agree, but Transistor is a F'ing amazing game. Definitely in the top 5 games I've played this year. I would argue that you can't compare Destiny to it since it is completely different. I've had a lot of fun with both, but from an artistic standpoint Transistor is more interesting, also has really unique gameplay.
What if they were planning on buying it for xbox?? What then??
Then you should have got a ps4. Hahaha just kidding
Actually i have one too
Lol! I love how people are disagreeing with your joke, it was funny!
Then maybe they'll have to wait for that article?
You can get most of these games on xbox too so at the parts where he says PS4, just imagine xbox.
Considering getting Destiny? Then make your own informed desicion and don't worry about what others think is "best".
But Destiny is clearly the greatest game ever made.
I think it will be one day. If you play that game for a while you'll start to see all kinds of cool ways they could expand that game, like hoverbike races, space battles, new worlds, new character types, more interesting loot, new multiplayer game types. I think the future will be interesting with Destiny. If you like Phantasy Star Online you should like this game.
wow is this really necessary? now we're advising people on not to buy Destiny? Can this hate-train stop already.
thats exactly what i thought... when was the last time a game came out, and there were articles simply bashing it, saying "please dont buy this game, look at the alternatives i found..." the "gaming media" really got butthurt over destiny, they still wanna see how many hits they can get to try and make up for not having early copies...
Yeah people need too Mooooove on... oh. God it started. Moooo moooooo mooo! I can't stop! :p
huh? i got $60 dollars and wanna buy a great game? why cant i just get destiny?? oh wait... because this guy couldnt cut it in the crucible..
So indies or Destiny hmmmm
Well, I probably would sink more hours into indies than I would with alot of AAA games as alot of them have quite alot of replayabilty or addicting nature.
Well they did say "on PS4". Jk jk jk :p
You can always just rent Destiny. I spent a total of $15.24 when I stopped at level 20. I got to experience Destiny without being too disappointed because it's better to spend $15 than $60.
"...I stopped at level 20...I got to experience Destiny..." Quiet, Conzul, you'll lose more bubs...
Ummm level 20 is when you finish the tutorial. You just started bub. The game totally changes after that
You DanteVFenris and Conzul can go on all you want about "tutorial," I was done. I don't like pointless grinding, I don't like the deathmatch/crucibal, and I can't play with my friends because they own a PS4 and I own a PS3. Once story mode is over, there's little reason to play on if you don't have friends to play with and hate grinding. So yes, Destiny is over for people like me. Have fun being trolled by the Cryptarch.
"The game totally changes after that" Sorry, but no. Its the same content over and over and they expect you to grind it ad nauseum. I enjoyed destiny for the few days it took to see everything, but I wish I'd rented it instead of buying into the hype. Far too little content for what I paid for the title. Imho it would have been a better game if they'd focused on single player with 4 player coop ie diablo.
Well, I certainly enjoyed every minute of the more than 5 straight hours I spent with a buddy on this game earlier today. Pretty sure I'm gonna be getting my money's worth with Destiny. In any case, I got it for $40, because I got BestBuy to (somewhat) price match BrandsMart's End of Summer Savings sale on it. :P
Well considering I don't see any games I want right now on my PS4 (PSN ID: BKaca) I'd say spend that $60 on an extra controller.
I know destiny is everyone's favorite game to hate right now. But if u have friends to play it with, destiny is pretty freakin awesome. For me it's like a solid 8.5 and well worth a purchase. Just my opinion.
It's sad when you NEED to play with other players just to make a game half decent.
Not when the game was designed from the ground up to be Co-Op and it's always been marketed as such.
^ funny thing is co-op is the weakest part of the game.
I keep reading this, but I found the Alpha to be terribly boring, and then 2 mates got the Beta so played as a Fireteam and all of us found it to be really boring too. There isnt many options for co op sadly, but I have honestly had more fun with Trine 2, Dead Nation and Diablo 3. Its a shame for me, Im really into co-op but from what I played of Destiny it didnt feel co-op. It just felt like other people were there, but we didnt need to communicate about anything. Im glad others are enjoying it though, I wouldnt want to see a big title like this flop.
IMO if you didn't NEED to communicate, you weren't playing at the right level... take that as a compliment, yall are just that good! LOL i'd like to see you take on the summoning pits on heroic without communication, or heaven forbid the vault of glass... teamwork is key on end game content. to each their own!
@ShowGun901 I imagine it gets alot harder, don't get me wrong. But if a game doesn't immerse me quickly, I'm not going to waste my time when I can dive into another game and have fun straight away.
10 hours too complete vault of glass, Thats too much. Wonder how those nerds looks like. Are they living in a Cave ?.
It's been beaten in under 2 hours
One of the most boring games ever played.I cant believe Bungie made such a crap.I finished the game at 16th Level and after that found nothing interesting to do in game.It is a huge trash "FOR ME"
Out if my library of Destiny, infamous, Tomb raider, TLOU, Diablo, Assassins Creed and Wolfenstein I've spent the most hours on Destiny already #justsaying
...This author is trolling for clicks. No shitty Indie game even comes close to Destiny.
I doubt any game on these next gen systems have anything better than Destiny for $60. IMO the game is very fun and gives me something to do everyday.
Destiny is crack
I got it for the XOne the coop is amazing but the mp is garbage nothing but modded controllers.Bungie has really went down hill on on it.When you play destiny online its hard to believe they made one of the greatest mp games of all time halo.Its a shame destiny could had been so much more if bungie would had stuck with microsoft instead of rushing out an unfinished broken online game with activision.Im guessing after 5 million sold it will drop off and it wont hit the 15 million sold that they was saying it would.After playing this im glad 343 took over halo because Halo 4 was the best in the series plus selling over 10 million copys.Goodbye bungie its a shame you guys went out like this
No one is going to be playing this on xb1 when the MCC launches. I got bored as soon as i reached lvl 20.
Destiny is the most traded game I seen in the store all year. One guy traded it and hit the bargain bin, left with 15 games.
I wonder if Destiny would have been more successful if there was no Open Beta..
