Destiny what do you guys think?

21 posts in this topic

I've seen a lot on Destiny from E3 and other sources. It appears to be Bungies next Halo, though it has its own feel you can definitely see some inspiration. It looks to be a very interesting game, not sure about the story yet. I am definitely interested to find out though. It seems like a fun game regardless if you play with friends or alone, but it looks like it will be better if you interact with friends and community. The RPG elements look very extensive with the ability to level up you and your equipment. I will be buying it, but what do you guys think?

I love it, it reminds me so much of a mass effect and borderlands combining what made both great. The massive amount of gun variety and a interesting and engaging story.

When someone asked why there's no PC port they said that they revolutionized FPS and that the best way to play it is with a controller because of them, thanks to their grand halo legacy. They almost said PC's were for spreadsheets(remember this classic?)I wouldn't play this game if I was given a free copy.

Gotta agree with Auron.

 

Even if they port it to PC, I won't be playing it.

 

Why? I don't really hold it against Bungie that they're ever trying to stay console loyalists, despite the shifting trend of FPS games to PC. Maybe it's my soft spot for Halo, but IMO some shooters do actually benefit from console dynamics. Perhaps it was just a shitty port, but Halo didn't feel like Halo when they ported it to PC.

A FPS that is better with a controller is not worth playing at all.

They are more than welcome to stay true to the consoles but i'm not handing them any of my money for a port they said we wouldn't get just because they want to cash in.

The Halo ports were trash and had bad sensitivity, it always looked like you were handicapped when playing it the right way(with a mouse!), Bungie didn't revolutionize shit either. The first successful console FPS was Rare's and it was also terrible when compared to contemporary Computer options*.  

Whenever I see a multiplayer stream of cod or halo championship on console it looks sad, it's a bunch of guys trying to aim with their bodies... Multiplayer FPS was actually in a rut because of these guys and activision. There was some movement with TF2 but it ultimately became a pug game, at least the new Counterstrike shook things up a little.

*I played Goldeneye the other day... Goddamn it didn't age well, Quake II is better in every single way imaginable, except there's no James Bond.

I honestly can't wait for Destiny to come out. But I don't think I'll be playing Online on the first days of it, Knowing how games function at the start usually ends up me throwing my controller or keyboard into the monitor or Tv.

Have you guys heard of a pc port? me neither. Thus, the game might as well not exist

You won't have a choice ... it's "technically" an MMO.

Bungie's the epitome of "PC gaming is dead" , do not listen to people who like their games.

See what I did there?

So one stupid employee reflects the opinion of a entire company, right. If you have read other interviews, you would know that Bungie actually did want to port Destiny to PC but it wasn't possible for the date that they created. Take into account that they have to make this for the 360, Xbox one, PS4, and PS3. that is a lot of work, even though I wish Destiny was on PC for the original release date. The point is Destiny is looking up to be a great game and if people like you want to use the excuse "it's not on PC thus it is bad ", go ahead.

It's not a "it's not on PC thus it's bad" situation .... some of us just don't think it looks all that great.

 

I don't feel like i'm missing out on anything by not having it released on PC.

Haven't seen much of the story info (because I hate spoilers) but the Mass Effect + Borderlands type gameplay and Bungie's reputation is exactly why i'm exited for this game.

I personally think Bungie is taking a bit to much inspiration from Halo, but if it was the exact opposite of Halo I wouldn't pick it up because I don't give a crap about the Xbox One or Playstation 4. Seriously people, like it or not PC is getting bigger everyday, so it just seems stupid not to port it, it's not like you can't use a controller on PC, so the controller argument is completely invalid.
