The ambitious sci-fi shooter Destiny has become one of 2014's biggest hits. With the new 'Dark Below' DLC released next week, Nathan Ditum talks to Bungie's Harold Ryan about the game's reception... and its future.
Most expensive franchise* Not most expensive game. How are such uneducated people getting articles on this site?
Are you sure this isn't the most expensive game ever? I was under the impression that it was. Please tell me a game that has been more expensive to make. How can it be the most expensive franchise if there is currently only one game?
the money they got, aka the "budget" was set aside to make the series (destiny, and its sequel, and all DLC) also, the budget included the marketing, which was extensive.
Didn't grand theft auto v break the record last year? It was some crazy number spent on that game alone. It literally broke a record. I don't remember hearing any mentions of destiny breaking records.
It excels at combat. Customization and graphics are good, although nothing overly impressive. It fails utterly at level design and story, ultimately making it a slightly above average sci-fi shooter, 7/10.
Nice opinion there. Pretty intense saying it "failed utterly" at level design. I don't think those words mean what you think they mean.
Haven't played it in about 2 months, I should really go back to it.
Best 62 dollar trade in credit I ever recieved.
I've enjoyed it but do feel that while there is quite an array of weapons many don't get used except for breaking up. I think it would have been much more fun to have collected and upgraded all the green auto rifles, get a trophy, collect and upgrade all rare autos, trophy, and so forth. There maybe 3m players still on but Ive found it harder and harder to run a raid with friends so the game is becoming redundant as there's no other items I need to collect from strikes, missions or crucible any more. Unfortunately the DLC bundle costs much the same as a full game in UK, (£35.00) so I'll be passing on that and I expect I'm not alone.
