    It is only in Alpha, and set to release September 9th?

     

    I'm excited for this as well..was really hoping for a PC version, but now I am stuck on which console to play it on.

     

    I've got a PS3, and not sure if it is worth getting a PS4, or Xbox One!

    It's just this weekend right? I'm bummed I can't get over to a buddies place to see it.  No biggie next round will be on all three systems.  It looks awesome though from what I've seen!

    Though it will be on ps3, best bet is to get it on ps4...my buddy pre-ordered the white PS4 Destiny bundle!

    Lol, you really need to question which console to get it on isn't it obvious?

    Question to OP (and anyone who is in Alpha) :

    Are you a Borderland fan? 

    How would this compare to it?

     

    --

    I'm asking cause I never really got into Borderlands.. only reason I finished the 2nd is because of Coop, and I was bored during the last few nights we were playing (got bored of the 1st one after like 3-4 nights..).

    I've been afraid that Destiny would be just like it, except with a central hub to buy/sell and show off to more than just your coop partners.. ?

     

    Thanks!

    yes it is absolutely amazing. this game has been what i've been waiting for. it really is impressive. 

    to answer your question. It really is nothing like borderlands or defiance. 

    When you log in, you are started on your story. It's single player but kinda open world. I don't really understand the technology but at level 2 starting out, i started to see people all over the place in the zones i was in. Really cool, makes it feel mmoish but not like too much. By too much, i mean 100's of people fighting the same mobs etc.. It was done just right giving it a social feel but not a overly crowded feel.

    You finish up your intro and are taken to the tower. Kinda like the social districts in APB. BIg safe hub for weapons, mail, faction quartermasters...etc.. It' also switches to 3rd person , which gives you a "how do i look" in my new gear view. Love this idea and it really goes a long way in my book (that little extra effort). The tower also gives you bounties daily/weekly mission terminal for pvp, pve etc..

    While in the tower or anywhere you can choose to go to orbit. in orbit you can select a planet and choose from storyling, fireteam (raids/dungeons), exploration mode. 

    I have been doing pvp and exploration mode pretty much. Exploration is kinda whatever you want to do. I dropped down and there are these beacons that give you various missions of kill x, scout y, analyze z etc.. it is constant combat, the enemies rain from ships nonstop. There are good places to leave combat and not get tracked but most of the area is heavily congested with mobs. They also have pretty solid ai. 

    while in the world , whether story mode or exploration, public events happen. The only one i've had happen was this huge space ship comes and drops off this big tank that we had to kill. It wasn't easy and we didnt kill it. Was 5 a.m and only 3 people chose to join in the zone. Was fun nonetheless.

    fireteam, devils lair is the only dungeon available. it's not a cake walk and probably the closest thing in this game to borderlands. devils lair is a dungeon but it's really challenging. I didn't do many fireteams.

    As your character levels up you unlock, traits, talents, ablities etc.. so there is character progression. Items also progress and equipment can be broken down , and there is engrams (unindentified equipment). Too much to explain. I've dragged this out long enough.

    Other than being an fps there isn't much else i can compare this game too. It's a sci-fi shooter with pve + pvp. Think defiance done right and on a much much much larger scale. The game is leaps and bounds ahead of anything i've played in the past 20 years. if you have any specific questions ask away.

    You don't need a pre order for alpha. Just a ps4. Preorder is for July open beta.

    I like the idea of a run and gun game like this with huge multiplayer (I won't call it a MMO) but I didn't care for Defiance all that much.  I never liked the way guns handled which seems like the whole point of a game like this.  Now Bungie does FPS very well but I'm still wondering how this game compares with their other titles or stands against a game like Defiance which at least on the surface seems to have a lot of similarities.

  • Demmi77Demmi77 Member UncommonPosts: 229
    It's a fps. Defiance is not. The combat is very halo feeling. By defiance I mean the premise surrounding the game not the physics.

    I didn't get an invite? I'm so mad.

  • Literally I can't stop playing. Amazing... And this is just the alpha. This game is nothing like Borderlands or Defiance. I didn't play anything like this before. I'm so glad that I bought it already. Thanks a lot Bungie...

    I've got a PS3, and not sure if it is worth getting a PS4, or Xbox One!

    Well its comes down to what you like. Do you like the sony controller or the xbox controller? Where are your friends playing? If no one has the new consoles and they'll be playing on PS3 then stick with ps3. 

    I would also look at what games you want to play. Does the ps4 have the games you want or does the xbox one have the games you want. I wouldn't choose one system over the other for destiny as it will run and look the same on both console.

    So if you decide to get one of the new consoles look at the pros and cons as both are okay but nothing special.

    Its console for the moment as they will most likely bring it to pc after they get it out on the consoles. They are putting it across 4 systems so I can understand why they're holding off on the pc version and its the first time they've worked with playstation in over a decade so I don't blame them.

  • alexhpy98721alexhpy98721 Member UncommonPosts: 264

    Ah lol well then they can keep it i can`t stand console controllers... 

    Not trying to start a war but the PC is just better for games even if its slightly more expensive...
