Destiny is good and we like it. If you have a PS3/Xbox360 or the new generation, you can play.

Make a post with your online information and the platform on which you're playing Destiny, and I will add it into the OP.

Destiny is a stupid game because it looks fun, but they're releasing it on old ass consoles, but not on PC.

It is odd that they would release it on old-gen systems, but at the same time I'm not complaining. That just means I can hold off getting a PS4 even longer.

Well that's no fun. Either way, what's the premise for this game? Saw about 25 seconds of a trailer before continuing my query on MGS V. Also dat KDR

I actually want to try it out. Anyone have a key for PS3?

Deep isn't good enough to describe it lol. Probably one of the most philosophic conversations I've ever seen in any medium was hidden in that game. Was a bitch to find it, but worth it. Go DL it, along with the Shifter mod and you will not be disappointed.
Aforementioned mod doesn't change the story in anyway, simply adds some gameplay features that make it more robust. Not a necessity, just makes a great game perfect.

Have you actually tried it? It is neither of those things.

The beta seems a little linear, but only because you can't reach a high enough level to access other subclasses.

I pre-ordered from the PSN so I don't think I get any extra keys. If I do get emailed some by chance I will send one your way.

You mean like story premise or gameplay premise?

The story is you're a Guardian and you are defending the last city on Earth from the "Darkness" which has come in the past and is coming again. There's this thing called The Traveller which is now believed to be dead, but it imbued some residents of earth with its power called "the Light" and they can use it, and they are your Guardians.

It's played like an FPS but advanced through like an MMORPG. It isn't as open as a traditional MMO, but you have the RPG-like customization options of gear with differing stats and choosing different attributes and the like.

if you preordered on PSN you don't need a beta code, if I was a detective I'd be taking you in for questioning eGraham.

Bosses are bullet sponges, which is kinda annoying, especially when your team is inept. Multiplayer is surprisingly fun but a lot of the weapons are pretty useless there and auto rifle is the way to go. Shotgun too.

I played as a Titan and now that I'm max level with decent gear I might try out the other classes.

I used your code, played it, really liked it, and then pre-ordered D:

Their marketing was a success.

Bosses are also kinda dull at the moment like you said. Really just a test of endurance. I'm also a level 8 titan but I want to keep going on it because the passive skills or whatever keep levelling up.

I'm sorry, surely it has promise but it sounds like any another class based online shooter. I'll have to do more research when I can (currently on my phone at work) but it sounds very generic. Down to the use of Light against Dark. They just put some context behind it lmao. Is it a strictly online game or does it have story as well?

It's an online game but it has story too. It's basically Halo but not.

It's a unique game. It's going to be different and not for everyone.

But I should expect that type of response from a potato hater. You people can't be trusted.

Hmm.

It's borderlands with bland characters and pvp.

It'll do stupidly well. With the stupid amount of money put into it, it's destined to not be unique, it'd be to much of a risk to do anything out of the ordinary.
The beta was enough, I really have no interest in ever playing it upon release.

There's nothing in it that I can't go, oh, this is like that thing/mechanic in 'x' game.

Played a bit at a friend's house yesterday. It's basically Borderlands 2 but without the characters, crazy weapons, loot and fun. Plus we couldn't get it to run with keyboard and mouse and the gamepad controls are awful and an insult to any gamer out there (who the hell uses aim-assist? are you kidding me?). And it's so tediously serious, although I can't be sure if the story isn't a parody.

In the case of GTAO, about half the people who play it. It's pretty lame.

There shouldn't even be an option for aim assist in a online game that involves players shooting at each other.

What is the re-playability, and how much of the game is given in the beta? If the beta is only 1/20 or less of the game then any criticism thus far is not going to be accurate to the whole game.

Also, was that like a CTF post game report? I thought the game was more MMO like where you could just go to whatever world you want to and explore and stuff. Are there different modes where you can play stuff or like a place you go to to do mini games and stuff?
