CCG writer, Adam, tells us his thoughts on Destiny Alpha.
I completely agree. I posted about this on another page.
I'm looking at the Alpha through Ps4 twitch. I don't like the boring announcer's voice.. I think people will play the game more on the MP side than the Story/MMO side. The game looks, to me like a blend between Halo and Titanfall. My first impressions.
Really I thought it was more like a halo and borderlands. Has anyone noticed that the multi player seems like a copy and paste from the halo universe
If you're a warlock and use the default shotgun the sound will be the same sound as the pistol in halo series. I also noticed the enemies have similar patterns in fighting as halo 3. I've played halo 3 countless hours, seen the vidoc multiple times and I notice some similarities between both games. Is it a bad thing, not for me. But for others it may be. I still only got a few hours in, but if you are a borderlands and halo fan. You'll like this game, I must say weapons and armor do not drop as much as borderlands does
I like it quite a bit. The game is a mix of pc mmo and an FPS. If you are not a pc mmo person I could see you not liking/understanding it. The story seems lacking but this is the alpha. Also this is an online mmo , you can't play this game for 20 minutes and understand it. It's a huge game and we are only getting a small portion. The multiplayer is great.
This is exactly what it is. It's an FPS MMO. I quite like it and I found it hard to put down. It's like Halo/Mass Effect/MMO all rolled in to one. I know a lot of people who will be in to this.
where the fk is my code ?. i live in europé... this is bs
I received a code last night (UK) so cant wait to try it later. Keep checking your inbox.
Damn i figured out why now. My PS plus Went out 2 Days ago and meaby they didint wanna give me it then...
You do need PS+ for the Alpha. As mentioned in Destiny's Alpha FAQ - http://www.playstation.com/... "Do I need PS+ to play the First Look Alpha? Yes." - :( I would give you a five day code, but I'm at work.
Same here, from UK, applied for mine 3 days ago, nowt..... Really disappointed, as this game is one of my most wanted, hopefully i can get into the beta.
If you don't like mmo's go back call of duty.
Uh oh. Combo burn. Both clever and intelligent.....
Obviously an Alpha is not the full game, so it will be missing large chunks. It seems to me that in this particular Alpha it is the fun that's missing. Everything else seems good, its just not fun. I look forward to the beta to see how that's improved.
Playing this now, just leveled up to the highest rank allowed the story section they allowed you to play was alot of fun imo. The strikes are fun as well but also extremely difficult all and all id say for an Alpha this is shaping up to be a great game.
I agree. This game is amazing, and it's just an alpha. I've been lone wolfing it so far. This makes me even more excited for the full version. For those who don't like it, you must be used to playing some unbelievable games if this is boring to you. I guess you would have to like open world games.
Seriously, this game is amazing. And in my opinion, the best looking game on ps4 (yeah, I've played through infamous second son twice, have the platinum). It's simply gorgeous the first time you play it.
I can't say it is just as good as Infamous. Two completely different games IMO. But Destiny Alpha does have some amazing graphics. I've climbed up cliffs or walked to edges to see the world. And holy-smackballs batman it looks GREAT! Mind you this is the Alpha, there still room for improvement. But by far this is the best visual FPS game today on consoles. Yes I know it's not a full game, but I cannot think another game that comes close to this.
Yeah that's what I meant when I said "best looking game". I was talking about the visuals.
I've been playing this game for the past 8hrs. & loved every minute of if. I missed the NBA playoffs because of this game. And there's still stuff I missed. Great job Bungie.
You didn't miss much, Heat were dominated the entire time.
Also I forgot to mention that this games AI is by far some of the best ive ever seen in any game fighting some of the enemies actually feels like fighting other human beings.
I have to disagree with that. I feel most the time the enemies either run blindly at me or do barely anything. Several times ive been standing right in front of an enemy who has been either completely unresponsive or looking the wrong way. I understand its an Alpha though so Im not expecting a final build or anything, I guess I should get on the Bungie Forums to report my findings.
Seriously, this game is gonna b crack for gamers. I can already tell. Its hard to get fully into an alpha b/c u know its limited but here are my thoughts. At first, it obviously feels tight and smooth like Halo's gunplay, which is awesome. It actually reminded me of all the things I loved about RAGE. It also felta lot like Mass Effect, except the areas are much bigger and more expansive. It is gorgeous and it IS obviously an mmo. When seeing a few ppl for the 1st time, my natural reaction was to look for my keyboard. BUNGIE...if u take 1 thing away from this...we NEED a chat ability!!! I honestly cannot convey just how awesome this game could be. U and ur friends are out adventuring, or u r by yourself, u come accross a friend and throw him a shout. U guys group up and soon u r a group of 5....which is what I wanted when the 1st dynamic event occured. Also, I could go on and on....the enemies felt great...even at low levels. I can only dream of end game content and just how epic it could be. And then there is PvP...the dreaded mmo PvP...that Bungie is gonna rule...giving legitimate longevity to this game. My only concern...and all u mmo fans out there know what I mean...how is content going to be funded. We already know that regardless of what is already being worked on, hardcore players will chew through content. So, maybe it is an annual expansion or paid dlc. Anyway, its everything I thought it would be. Now lets see how many ppl want to play a true mmofpsrpg.
Completely agree. Amazing game.
The game looks amazing and is fun but that 30fps for fps is hurt.
That 30fps runs very smooth, even for an aplha
I'm coming from Battlefield 4 mate and for me runs like s..t
The more i see of this game the more i love it. Destiny looks like my kind of game, i love being able to customize my character to make him/her unique, being able to do quest with my friends or solo and being in raids that can take 4+ hrs.....i see nothing wrong with this game so far.
Good points :- moon map, vechiles, feel of the game, atmosphere. Negatives - 6 vs 6, other level looks dull. sloW turning. Small maps. All in all its been cool. i thought id get rid of it quickly like i did with killzone trial, but this game has real potential. Pitty about numbers and map size, which arent a deterent.
Loving this so far, cannot wait for final release.
All I have to say is for an alpha this game seems very very polished and I have been in my huge handfuls of betas.
The Destiny alpha is a lot of fun. Don't know why many of you say its boring. I guess some gamers are infected with the Hollywood movie syndrome. screen blowing up every 3 seconds.
Started downloading it last night. Gonna play it later.
