Destiny is a pretty great game. For it to become the rock ‘em sock ‘em hit it aspired to be, these qualities needed to be at the top of their game.
Not have like 7 different type of currencies not be repetitive and grindy more weapons and cool weapons like in Halo
Make it a real open-world and find some real characters to get behind – or a villain we love to hate.
was going to trade in today but decided to keep hold its a pretty unique game. I wish the crucible points stacked up week after week, we don't all have 100's of hours to spare...
Crucible points stack, but you can only earn 100 a week.
Its fine, beside fixing bugs and glitchs. The game is good and keeps growing. The grinding part isn't a big deal if you're use to playing mmo's.
Don't mind the grind if it leads to something. There are not enough guns and they shouldn't be selling all of the guns at Xur
They aren't. Particularly, Gjallarhorn. Yes, they did on week two, but havent since.
The world's most expensive game? Half-life 2 it was not. I love Destiny's graphics, the art, the audio and the atmosphere. As a complete game though it was a nightmare to play, how could Bungie and Activision do this? They almost made cod seem intelligently designed and we know that's rarely happened since 2008. I can see the idea, taking inspiration from mass effect, borderlands and possibly fable the realisation though was heartbreaking, the game that never could quite become the sum of its parts. Also the mandatory online or fail, failed epically. I felt cheapened and sullied after a few hours playing and had to return it.
Not a bad article. Too bad you had to use a flamebaity title. "Destiny needs to Evolve in these 3 ways to make the Game Better." I initially read the description in order to see how Destiny wasn't a success. Then I clicked on the article and found that you aren't talking about it being a success, just how to make the game even better.
I agree with the point of the Narrative being a complete mess and the game would benefit greatly if it improved. The game is rich in lore actually, but Bungie made a very strange choice to make it only accessable on a website. At least put it in the game for heaven's sakes. Most of the content is soloable. The Raid isn't (unless you are a very skilled player on Crota's End..VoG you could two man the whole thing). Nightfalls can be soloed for above average players. Weeklys can be soloed as well for solid players. I can understand the highest level content being "Co-op." I would like to see some more of the exotic weapon bounties (like thorn) be utilized more. Some small story arc and solo content. Lastly, streamline the currencies and once something is grinded up, don't take it away from the player and have them regrind it for a damage boost. That happened with CE. It was a very strange choice. Sure, lets grind up to get that damage boost, but no need to take away the work already put into the gun.
Just give me match making for the Nightfalls and Im good!!!!
