if this game fails i will lose all hope in shooters, haven't played a good one in half a century

There unreal tournament

That voice over better be placeholder, just horrible.

Looks like halo meets borderlands. AI looks same as Halo but maybe worse. Action is just so boring it hurts.

Hopefully the design and play style is a lot more different than BL2 because that game got boring and repetitive.

That public event went just like i imagined it would. A bunch of enemy waves incoming and you have to defend the objective.

Unfortunatly, the the AI seemed lacking, sometimes just standing there. I hope those public events have mor evariety, vuz otherwise i can see it getting old really fast. Specially when you considering the obvious mmorpg influences. Still alpha, but doesn't inspire much for me.

I think most of the complaints on this forum are short sighted.... that one video linked here is crap... you can go into any game... show one little crappy clip of an area with 2 enemies and call it boring, all it does to me is prove the point of this forum being casual chavs that need to see michael bay footage (even though we have seen more interesting footage of a destiny boss fight).

That and its a large scale shooter/RPG.... where the excitement of being alone in a leveling area will never match the large team of pvp battles against bosses/eachother ...

Oh wait, im on chavspot, you people don't know what multiplayer gaming is outside of CoD.

So yesterday when this was posted i didn't even bother watching the video and only presumed it'd bad cuz i was kinda very disappointed with the 7 minutes gameplay vid Bungie released couple of months ago. Now i watched the damn thing and... Seriously? Now i don't even want to get into the 'its just an alpha', 'its just a beta', 'wait for the final release', 'youtube video' and all of this crap because,,,,,,, well just look at Titanfall. Why was this so much fugliers, dumber (ai do nothing else but walk at you? rly bro???) and boring environment? The main reason i was hyped for this game was its art direction but this, this was... I r disappoint and this is the only shooter im hyped for this year

Huge Destiny Update on the Leaks


There's a lot of confusion here, and we haven't done the best job ever of explaining the game or its structure.

I'm Luke, and I'm one of the lead designers on Destiny.

First, Destiny is structured into Activities.

We've attempted to build a suite of activities that can suit a variety of moods (I want something challenging! I want to chill out with my friends! I want to see where the story goes next! I want to shoot other players!, I want the game to be a cruel dominatrix! et cetera)

These activities come in a bunch of flavors:

  • Story missions - soloable activities (you can still play them in groups of up to 3!), often with ties to the main story arc of Destiny (the campaign). These activities appear at various Levels (numerical, relative to the player) and choosing a higher level (relative to you) means you're opting in for some additional challenge.
  • Strikes - 3 player activities, with bosses and loot at the end. Their goal is a highly replayable activity that will - at higher levels - lead you into the loot game.
  • Explore - cruise around the surface of a planet in Fireteams of up to 3, taking odd jobs and tasks for the City. You can find minerals and resources out in the world that you'll have some use for as you find weapons in Destiny that you want to stick with. This is a lower intensity activity
  • Raids - 6 player, cooperative required, communication required gameplay. High challenge. We haven't talked much about this yet and I'm not going start that conversation here on NeoGAF
  • Multiplayer This is for the "shoot other players" mood.

Now, the second part is how the world has been built.

We've structured Destiny's world to have places where you will probably intersect with other players, and places where you won't. We're not going to have players drop into the climax of a mission, but the common landing zones for a given planet? That seems like a great place to see other players running amok in the world.

EDIT: Regardless of what activity you're playing (PVP aside), you'll see players on their own activities, i.e., players beginning a Strike might see a guy collecting Relic Iron on Mars, and a Public Event begins and suddenly everyone is distracted to take down a key Cabal target for a chance at powerful gear and materials to upgrade your best weapons and armor.

A bunch of folks are playing the Alpha now and we're already seeing all kinds of opportunities for places to improve Destiny. I have no doubt that in the Public Beta, we will learn even more from your feedback and experiences.

I'm not going to get into any of the recurring activities or gearing or class stuff today, but I imagine we'll start to try and explain stuff more soon.

Well, I hate MMO's and it's just another MMO. What I don't understand is SW usually hate MMOs so what happened now? Marketing and Big name publisher makes MMO acceptable everyone suddenly?

Bungie haven't exactly been graphic kings the past generation, and boy have cows made that known. Can't see how cows will enjoy this.

Was expecting a lot more for a 500 million dollar game.

Then again.. its still alpha..

its not a $500 million game all right now.

This game is to be supported/expanded for 10 years (shit load of DLC and expansion packs, MMO style), so that $500 million is to be spread out in those 10 years.

Out of all the things to care about, you only care about cows...

The fuck is wrong with some of these people around here?

Graphics look pretty bad.

they shoulda made it for xbox one first. sony gives devs outside their first parties the shaft all the time just like nintendo. i cant wait till sony goes under and we can move forward in gaming

Does not make sense, xbone is weaker system. Gaming with only MS is hell, this would be giant step backwards for gaming. GFWL is disaster. Without Sony, xbone would still be Sovietxbox with MicroStasi policy.

It's hard to preview a game like this. Borderlands doesn't look good in previews, either, but it's a lot of fun to play.

This game will be hindered greatly without Marty O'Donnel.

He finished he work before he got shitcanned and it will be in the game.

#66 Posted by R3FURBISHED (10319 posts) -

There are full HD videos out there showing Destiny in motion.

There are articles with hands-on previews from GameSpot and IGN among others.

@MBirdy88: For once I'm in total agreement with you. These guys want teh epicness explosions buildings crashing plane jumping b movie cheese 24/7 these days, or they turn into the "BORING!!!" muppets you see on Toyota commercials. I guess that's to be expected from the CoD and Battlefield crowd these days.

I laugh at anyone who likes halo that says this looks boring... its combat pace is identical. only this will likely have alot more going on in the later stages of the game.

Plus the game will constantly be improving. Despite the sour grapes this game will be a huge success, and damn fun.

Day one.

#73 Edited by lamprey263 (23104 posts) -

Wow, even the alpha takes a shit on the Borderland games, but it still has to improve more to be a great game.

#74 Edited by Sollet (7339 posts) -

Haters gonna hate.

This game will deliver, Bungie always does. Suck it.

Whelp, I'm still playing BL2 and if anything will make me drop that for another FPS co-op looter, me thinks it's be mah Density erm, I mean, Destiny. :P

That first gif looks pretty damn cool.

#77 Posted by MrYaotubo (2630 posts) -

Holy damn, that looks mediocre and extremely underwhelming.

Anybody going to try the beta? I think I'm just going to wait for game to release.

When does the beta come out? Is it a standalone or does it piggyback another game purchase?

If you pre-order you get a beta key and it's supposed to start this summer.

You guys are being way too critical about alpha footage.

PC for FPS.

#83 Edited by Motokid6 (5232 posts) -

@StrongBlackVine: Thats the best news I heard all day. Thanks.

So O'Donnel's music + Peter Dinklage = an amazing game. Hope is restored.

Now they just need to make this damn thing for PC so I don't need to buy a new console for one damn game.

Beta date is going to be announced at E3 - I'd bet at the Sony conference. Bungie will also reveal their PvP at E3.

Blame the Sony FPS curse.

What? Destiny is multiplatform.

#87 Posted by Daious (1112 posts) -

I have always love Bungie. Have Faith.

Also what we say was freeroam portion of the game not the story mode.

#88 Posted by Mr-Powers (213 posts) -

Look at these bitter Hermies trolling because they don't get to touch this great game. I'll be sure to stream it for you guys and you can watch on 2nd screen while port begging on your main screen.
