Tom Phillips by Eurogamer: So, Destiny's Reef hub is identical to the space shown in a trailer for the main game back in Feb 2013
Yup. There it is. Proof of how royally we got screwed over.
It's pretty damning.
I expected some DLC BS from Activision but for Bungie to go along with it is just saddening. My respect for Bungie really went down the sink. **** YOU Bungie/Activision
Damning is being generous. You've got to have some serious balls to show your final DLC as one of the first pieces of gameplay footage.
been saying since day one half the content held back and sold on later instead of make the game and then additional stuff. my respect for bungie has gone due to this and activision,well its whats we expect from them isnt it. destiny could of been huge and one of the best games made imo but they killed it with half assed lore(seperate from game)and cutting a huge chunk of the game on release. that was probably alreayd on disc.
Yup. There it is. Proof that things change. Content gets removed/cut by the time the game releases. Deadlines aren't met. This is the way game development works. Would you have preferred a 1-year delay?
For a fully fledged package? Hell to the yeah!
Would you rather pay an extra 40 bucks to get half the game now?
That is shocked.
LOL!! My modzilla dictionary found other word...
I am shocking.
You must be Thor.
And you're ThunderPulse!
More proof that both DLC were part of the game and that were taken from the last build. With the content they cut this game could be much better, but we all know who is behind this.
I knew this was the case from day one, that's why I sold destiny after a week. Bungie sold their souls to Activision, their Halo glory days will never return.
yeah it was pretty obvious from launch day they had taken chunks out. People still play it though some how which is beyond me as i got bored within a few days due to terrible story and mission design... To me Bungie were never that good as I never really thought Halo was anything special and Destiny is the same for me nothing special.
@wellyuk, I would've agreed with you but you had to add that bit about halo at the end. :(
nope.. more proof you assumed something you saw in a video almost 2 years before release was part of the main game when they said no such thing. it might as well have been a concept piece... you arent being sold a trailer at that point, its simply a teaser showing the tone of the game etc. taken out? you mean never included dont you? just because you didnt get something doesnt mean it was cut.. it was never included and was always planned as DLC (imo anyways) DLC is planned along side the game... why is this shocking to anyone? im honestly confused lol
Makes me wonder how often the DLC is actually developed together with a main game but later marketed as extra stuff and sometimes cut from it because the extra money.
Probably more often than we'd wish to believe.
all the time
Kinda like Star Wars Battlefront Space Battles included in your $60 premium. Just you wait.
And I feel like even more a fool for buying the $90 digital version .
same here man...never again
I don't. I've gotten over 800 hrs into the game. I got more than my money's worth from this game
One simple cannot get their moneys worth out of a plastic disk. You've already parted ways with the bill. You ain't seeing it again lol. OT: this is why I don't preorder, don't buy season pass etc. Hell a dev will be lucky if I buy the game first day unless it's exclusive, and one that I can trust.
Time put in =/= not equal value,
I tell u... I love playing this game.. But C'mon bungie.. Stop sticking it to us already!!! Bad enough were playing ur unfinished game.. Give us decent sufficient content already.. If HoW doesn't live up to the hype I'm done with u..
Not much hype yet. Today they are streaming the reef and how weapons will be upgraded on their twitch channel @ 2:00pm Eastern. We also really have no idea of the Arena. I have no hype right now, but just curiosity. I love destiny since I enjoy loot driven games, but this DLC needs to be beefier then TDB because May to September waiting for comet is going to be a long time.
I also bought the $90 version. Not even motivated to do house of wolves.
Omg wow... This is sad, I stopped playing this game after 3 weeks. Biggest regret getting this digital. Hopefully some of you still have fun playing this
Bunjie were clearly stuck in the past. The gaming world had moved way too far ahead by the time Destiny came out. Besides people should not expect great gameplay from very dev. Some are bound to fail.
