Who else is picking up Destiny?

Postby razorsharp » Mon Sep 08, 2014 6:39 pm

I saw a bit of gameplay of this upcoming game from Bungie and though " Im sold"

I pre-ordered it and will have it in hand this weekend. I purposely didn't read any reviews, watch any more videos about it etc so it will be a complete surprise to me.

Anybody else looking forward to playing this game?

I want to...but I'm not sold on it. I prefer the realistic shooters more. The only reason I'm tempted by this is because it's made by Bungie.
Most recently acquired: Native Chief, Shaman S90V, Para 3 LW, Ikuchi, UKPK, Smock, SUBVERT, Amalgam, Para 3 CTS-XHP, Kapara, Paramilitary 2 M390
Grail Paramilitary 2 M390 X 2! ACHIEVED!!

I pre-ordered it in May haha. I got pretty excited about TItanfall, and ended up loving the gameplay...for a little while. I find myself not playing it at all anymore. Just too much the same going on with it.

But Destiny, I played the Beta and had a great time. I think they did a great job making it unique and expansive. People are complaining it's basically just Halo, but I think it has the right parts of Halo exemplified and many many more aspects improved upon. I got sick of the COD series and don't bother anymore, and Battlefield is fun but don't find myself going back for some reason.

I just hope my game gets delivered tomorrow and that I don't have to wait another day or two.

I'm on the fence. Looks like an amazing game and Bungie is A+ quality. I'll get a review from my brothers prior to pulling out a credit card :).

Nope, picked up Diablo 3 again now that they did away with Auction House and finally got the loot system sorted out. Beyond that I still play some BF3 now and then, and I'm itching for GTA5 when it finally comes out for PC.

Oh and I just installed Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 the other night...lol. It's one of my favorite relaxing type games.

I spent some time playing it today, and I must say I really like it.

It allows you to run around battle bad guys and build up xp and what not, while also always finding missions and challenges to pursue.

So far I have only played around on Earth, despite having access to the Moon missions. It is a ton of fun, but I am curious on the level up system, because I ahve heard it is only 20 levels or so. They may just increase the xp to level up significantly from level to level, but we will see!

It is a ton of fun to explore and come across enemies and have a battle then continue on your way,or start up a mission and work towards completing it while hitting more battles and obstacles. The spontaneous group battles are cool too and a great addition to the game play as they can be pretty difficult, and really force you to up your game from running around head shot-ing guys.

How big is the download? I bought the disc copy and still had a 5gb install right when you put it in.

Played it for about an hour so not to far into the game, but it seems like a good game so far. I pretty picky about games.

That's not too bad, but the DLC to come will start packing it on I'm sure.

So far I have found it allows players of all levels to have fun, because missions around Earth tend to be easier, and get harder as you work your way through the story. I tried the first moon mission right when I could and it was a bit tough for my loadouts and character so I went back to the Earth missions for a while.

I got to play the beta, and I was not impressed by it. So, I didn't get it, and probably won't any time soon. Looking forward to other titles.

I hope this comes out for PC, I'm no PC Elitist, but I'd do anything to play Destiny on PC,

Maybe not an elitist, but the only games I'd rather play with a controller are racing games. The rest I'll take a keyboard and mouse over every time.

I've got it. It plays like a brother to halo with a MMO twist. Keeps it interesting with all of the items, and different monsters. So far so good

Im definitely enjoying it, and like how you slowly level up all your abilities. :D
