I too was kind of underwhelmed with the latest Destiny video. I’m thinking Bungie has built up the hype for this game so much, that releasing such a basic video is rather disappointing.

In all honesty though, I’m still pretty excited for the game. There is just so much we don’t know about the game. I’d say if we are still feeling “meh” about the game after E3, then Bungie should be worried.  :scratch:

I’m going to have fun with the game. I still have yet to have a lot of quality time to really sit down and play, but I’ll be playing a lot of PvE and PvP.

I am enjoying the graphical upgrade from the 360 to the XB1.

The graphics are absolutely amazing on the Xbox One, I’ll give it that. The lighting effects – – never seen anything like it. The little ghost dude will fly around in dark spaces and the objects in a room will light up because of him, and it’s really, really well done.

That being said…

Gawd, I feel like such a bitch lately, nag nag nag, nothing positive to say! Halo sucks, this sucks, that sucks! lol. But yeah, not digging Destiny. And here’s why:

Only being able to party up with three people sucks. First off, it’s really hard to find out who is already partied up, and when you can only party up with three people, all of a sudden you have a ton of tiny parties instead of a few to check. Now, I did notice this little arrow thing, that I guess lets you know if you can join? Not sure about that, but it still doesn’t negate the former sentence.

Secondly, I do not like PvE. Wait, what is PvE? I don’t know, I’m just copying Darth, and I know it’s not PvP, lol. But I don’t like it. If I liked it, I would’ve spend more time playing campaigns and Spartan Ops. But I didn’t.

So off to mm I go. Well, guess what? It’s laggy as balls!! WTF! I thought dedicated servers were supposed to take care of that shit?! I mean, I’m getting shot by people who aren’t facing me, people are jigging all across the map, people are getting dropped offline, a guy in our party last night couldn’t hear Mike but he could hear me halfway through the game, so he left and came back; then he could hear Mike but he couldn’t hear me O.o

Now, I’ll be the first to admit I’m not always the easiest to ease into change (well, I am if it’s AWESOME! lol) so I’m giving it a chance, and it doesn’t feel like an itchy sweater, but it was summed up pretty well on Twitter earlier: it’s just missing something.

And I stand by that “It’s retarded if it’s ‘social’ and you can only party up with 3 people, and you can’t talk to randoms in the tower” statement.

I actually feel like it’s going to kill social gaming, not encourage it. And I’m not afraid to admit that I get the bulk of my after-hours socializing via my gaming habits, so for me that’s not a good thing.

In short, I’m considering going to play Halo tonight, if my experience doesn’t improve.

Join Destiny Diehards and get Halo Diehards out of clan probation at Bungie!

Darth, I know you’re a member of the group, but apparently I hadn’t created the clan yet, so I’m the only member.

I’ve yet to try PvP as I wanted to let things calm down with the servers before trying it out. I hope to get some time in the Crucible this weekend.

We still have a lot we’ve not seen – according to Bungie. I also think it will be more interesting once you get to level 20 and can start using the legendary and exotic loot. Also, you have the option at level 15 to start working on your character’s second subclass, so that will be interesting to me.

However, I like this kind of thing – building characters and finding new loot, even if it means replaying levels and missions over and over.

Launch day was really buggy for me, but last night was much better in terms of getting booted to the home screen.

BTW, PvE means “player versus environment” which typically means you are playing against the game’s baddies instead of other people (PvP).

Had a ton of fun last night with Darth and Biscuit (gaming random BigBadMike and I picked up over in Battlefield 4), it was probably my second most fun night in Destiny including Beta. The level we went into on the moon – – stunning. Stunning and very, very fun.

Listening to the Diehards podcast as I type this, I realize that Bungie still has a good grasp on epic-ness. Some of those caverns we saw last night O.O Definitely gives the impression that there is waaay more to explore, unlike the Halo 4 campaign which felt like a linear walk through like Hollywood (buildings with faces, no depth, like Blazing Saddles, lol)

Some of the new monsters we found were cool too. I was getting sick of the same-o same-o. Gives me hope that things might stay fresh for awhile?

 

Edit: and if I think of the PvE as campaign, I’ve got to shut my mouth on the complaining, because there is not lag, and it’s great to “play campaign” with friends.

Chaos, have you done any of the “Patrol” missions yet? Basically it allows you to just free roam and pick up random side quests and participate in public events.

I think the “campaign” is rather short if you just blast through and don’t bother looking around for stuff. However, if you actually take the time to enjoy and explore then there is more to do and find.

Also, not to mention playing through and leveling up multiple characters and their respective subclasses. I’m very interested in trying out the Sunsinger subclass for Warlock once it unlocks at level 15.

How do you know about all this stuff?  :wuh?:
