  3. So... I just red that the game Destiny that will be released in September will have 4 planets. I presume they mean Earth, moon, Mars & Venus (while the moon isn't actually a planet but w/e). They also said that each planet will have a meager 1 destination. In other words there will be no Chicago like swamp city for Earth atm. In September for Earth we'll roam the plains of Old Russia (again -_-') Now comes the real deal why I believe that it will be a money grabbing game. You see in the beta I have faced every enemy with level '??' and I found out a couple of things. Most zones where you encounter these beings were isolated, meaning that you couldn't progress, because some (garage)door was closed and should be open in order to advance. HOWEVER there was 1 zone that had a rather surprising outcome... You remember that secluded area with the broken ships and boats?? Well if you went to the north, there was a path that leads to the east. If you followed that path you would encounter 2 Dingos at level '??' I got past them, to encounter 6 more enemies with their captain and a 'stationary-defence-spewing-grenade-mechanism' called Shriek. After a fairly big amount of hilarious tries I finally got past them. So I entered the entrance of the alien space ship that immediately leads to an underground cave with a HUGE main hall full of enemies. I got past them fairly easy thx to the cover and darkness. I was super excited to see what was next, I couldn't believe what I was doing But then disappointment stroke me. I ended up in the area where you have to fight your first 'boss battle' in the strike mission (there where your ghost had to de-activate the lasers so you could progress to the next zone to battle The Devil Walker). It was freaking loophole. I was thinking why did Bungie do that? Do they want to make us believe there is SO MUCH MORE!! But in reality there's not very much to see or do. I mean all those caves with level '??' enemies where you couldn't progress further due to a closed (garage)door... Are these HUGE caves where you can actually get lost and/or they eventually lead you to an entirely new zone OR are those caves just like a cellar where there might be some good stuff to find. Since Activision publishes the game and has funded A LOT, looking at the regularity of DLC releases within their Call of Duty franchise. I presume they are planning to do the same thing with Destiny. 15€ For 1 extra destination... Sadly I think they are willing to do that and many gamers will be willing to pay for it. But stop for 1 moment and think about it... We know that Titan, the moon of Jupiter will be explorable. Concept art teases of a possible Chicago swamp like city on Earth. So I presume that each 'planet' will have multiple destinations. Let's take the average of 3 destinations. ATM we know of 5 different 'planets' to explore - > Earth, moon, Mars, Venus & Titan. In total there will be 15 destination whereas the game that gets released in september contains only 4 destinations. We'll have to pay for these other destinations in DLC. But how will that be? If you pay 60€ for the game that delivers 4 destinations... 60€ / 4destinations = 15€ for each destination. So each player (assuming he will purchase all the future DLC) will pay 60€ for the game and 165€ for all the DLC's. A total of 225€ for 1 player instead of the traditional 60€. Well played Activion... well played. For now I decided to purchase Destiny on PS3 as soon as I can get a second hand copy and then I'll be curious to see how the DLC policy will go. If I don't like what I see, I just play another game, period.
  4. I wonder if they really have this bus? I reckon they realise how ridiculous the hype has gotten and are poking fun at themselves and fanboys, with this not in the least subtle picture. http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/games/call-of-duty-advanced-warfare#fbid=D3Pu83S2Y7k?hashlink=roadtogamescom Believe the hype Get hyped Kill my wife Hide the knife Put her head on a spike Hoo rah, Hoo rah, Hoo rah, Hoo rah, Hoo rah, blah, blah, blah, blah...
  5. Hey. I need someone to please explain me this. On Steam you can by Call of Duty (the original), which is good, for 19,99 euro, which is the crazy part. The game was released in 2003 and they're charging us 20 euro (I can only check the euro prize) for it? Why? Is there something I dont know? Is there an actual serious legit reason for that prize tag. They're also charging the same for United Offensive (The expansion) and Call of Duty 2 (My favourite CoD of all time). And they're charging you 60 euro for Black Ops 2. Really? C'mon. What is going on in Activisions head?
  6. If it succeeds, can Destiny become as huge as WoW and Halo? Comment, discuss, video response, we will talk about it... next time.

  7. Ok, I think the title is quite self explanatory. I turn on my PC, I turn on Steam and look. - Oh good some new games! look Call of Duty Ghosts on sale. I think to myself it wasn't the best call of duty, maybe Activision will do a 50% maybe 60% discount. I mean they probably paid the game development on the pre orders. I see 33%, Ok not bad, then I look at the actual price 40.19€ (original price 59.99€ on steam), and then I think really 40€ for a a game that wasn't that great. And don't forget that this is without DLCs. I mean Batman Arkham Origins was like 24€ with 50% discount and was released around the same time ghost was. How do you guys feel about this? (I apologise in advance for any grammar error, English is not my natural language)
  8. Greetings everyone. I just wanted some opinions. As someone who is highly invested in destiny and has a presence in the community press scene for the game I have an exceedingly biased opinion. In the knowledge of this I wanted to ask what everyone's thoughts are on the game. Is it a big next step in the FPS genre with matchmaking on the fly, 3 weapons and a huge variety of player abilities or is it just another shooter, made by bungie so arguably a very good one, but nothing that will cause a revolution. thoughts?
