Title: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Vatx on 05:08 PM - 03/02/14
Hey guys!

Are there any XIM members as excited as me for the Destiny beta arriving in a couple months? If the latest news and speculation holds true, the PlayStation community could get it in as little as 8 weeks! (May) With Xbox access coming a month later. I plan to be rocking it on the PS4 with XIM4 ;D (Pleaaase let XIM4 be ready -prays-) I haven't been this worked up about any game EVER.

For anyone unfamiliar with Bungie's new game, Destiny is essentially a MASSIVE multiplayer online FPSRPG taking place some time in our far future, after the collapse of humanities golden age. This was a time when civilization flourished throughout the solar-system, utilizing the knowledge and technological ability of the Traveler, a mysterious entity/being which upon its arrival, changed everything. (my speculation is the Traveler is some highly advanced, altruistic AI, practically a deity, that spreads it's wealth of knowledge and vast understanding with worthy races)  The Destiny universe will rival Skyrim in both it's sheer size, spanning across many of our planets and moons, and customization expertise, giving players near limitless choices with gear and weapons. Just to express the scope of this, there will be more weapons in Destiny than ALL Halo games combined squared, and then squared again! This is crazy considering every weapon has a vast upgrade tree, not to mention the effects of combining certain weapons and gear. The depth to this game, in practically every category, is going to be insane! Destiny is also very accommodating to how you like to play. Whether you enjoy powering through missions solo, prefer to play with friends, or are all about abilities competitive multiplayer, Destiny has it. Better yet, Destiny will span at least 10 years, possibly longer! It's not like the CoD franchise where each year you're practically forced to shell out another $60 for the new title, or face a dieing game, saturated with hackers.. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy CoD quite a bit. I play Ghosts every night, and before that, BO2 and MW3. But something I have always regretted, are all those maaany hours invested in each game.. They sorta become meaningless once the new titles drop. That's my life you're talking about. You just start all over again, and again. That's fine, since CoD is centered around profiting as much as possible (and has the power to since we race to pull out our credit cards every year :p), although personally I would prefer all my invested time show for a little longer than 12 months. Thankfully, Destiny will have no monthly subscription. You will pay for the initial game of course, and then for expansion packs every couple years, which sounds perfect to me! Destiny is on the path to becoming one HELL of a FPS, perfect for the gamer who enjoys continuously expanding their characters skills, weapons, vehicles, and other gear.

I can't wait to see how this game plays with XIM once the Destiny PS4 beta arrives! I'm keeping my fingers crossed XIM4 will be ready in 8 weeks! I wonder if there will be any advantages with simi-auto weapons ;)

Is anyone else out there as excited as me? I really have never felt such a desire to play a game before. I'm nearly sure once this drops, all other games will be shelved, except maybe CoD every now and then  ::)

I cannot wait for Destiny.


I've been onboard since it was announced last February, and follow the vast community that has already grown.  I read the forums daily, view any youtube content created, and also absorb any news that Destiny or the press release.  The game has the chance to rock the FPS world to its core. 

As a side note.... one of the best gaming podcasts around is Guardian Radio (all about Destiny).

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but the Destiny Beta won't get a smart translator since it's a beta, that being the case, YMMV with regard to how good of a profile you can craft for XIM4 purposes.

You're probably right.... but Destiny is considered the next biggest AAA title.  Activision is predicting it to set records for the highest gross sales new IP, and also become the next billion dollar IP in their portfolio.  So, I will hold out hope that a ST would be developed for the beta.

How difficult is it to build STs? I really hope Obsiv will find the time to make one  :o

As Choo said, Destiny is on the path to become a multibillion dollar game. Many people don't yet realize just how huge this game is going to be. Bungie is really going to hit it huge with this one  ;)

Glad to know I'm not the only member going crazy over this game  ;D I'm familiar with Guardian Radio. They do an awesome podcast! Was listening to the latest one last night actually. I can't believe I didn't add that in the original post D: Wish we could go back and modify posts after a longer period


BTW, thank you to whoever removed my "reserved" post. I hadn't realized yet there was a countdown till posts get locked, and it looked bad too lol.

Is Destiny going to be a multi-platform release?

I am using my XIM Edge on PS4 via WD and would love to play this game once released.

Building ST's is not trivial and since there have been games that alter their look mechanic between beta and retail we don't support betas.

There will be people testing various makeshift ST configurations during beta. You shouldn't have a problem finding a temporary solution until its properly supported.

That makes sense.

Just as long as we can aim straight for the beta  ;)

I was really looking forward to this game.
But i'm trying to ignore it's existence as i don't want to be let down! like most games let me down these days by not living up to the hype.

So i'm taking this stand currently:

Destiny? Never heard of it.

I assure you, this will be a game that lives up to the hype ;) Bungie began initial development way back on 07, and began making real progress in 2010. They had the option to split up the team and work on a few different projects at once, in case some of them failed, but they decided to dedicate the entire company on one game. Bungie is covering every angle with Destiny. They know this is a one shot, are are working tirelessly to bring a remarkable game to the masses. I urge you to go look up some of the recent Destiny news, because I promise it will only excite you. Of course nothing wrong with waiting till September for one massive surprise  8)

That would be great!  ;D I'll make a revision and send you a message some time in the near future. Thanks!

I hadn't heard of Division until just now. Checked out a gameplay video, and holy snap! That game looks legit! Kinda freaks me out though lol. Anything with huge viral outbreaks gets me worked up. There are a lot of scary things going on in that department in the real world. The W.H.O. say they expect something big to happen sometime in the next decade D: We can give a huge thanks to the incredibly massive amounts of antibiotics given to humans an many livestock. The drugs are doing their job.. killing all the regular viruses. Regrettably though, fluke viruses that have immunity are left behind. Super viruses are literally breeding in city waterways right now. Thankfully we have some seriously advanced technology and understanding now to decipher biological hazards, and can come up with solutions faster than ever, but still.. freaks me out

Kinda got on a tangent there  ::)

I can definitely see Division being a very successful game, though I think all my time will still be spend on destiny :p

I sincerely hope you're right. I'm not trying to be  Major Buzzkill, but I've heard that song before. It was called Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I was also making the same claims before the game came out. But then it did...

Gaming companies are more interessested in making money than decent games (Battefield 4 and so on are perfect examples). They create the hype, make a lot of pre order promises, create a TV series to go along with the game (Defiance and Halo soon I believe) and the bottom line are broken games like ToR, Defiance or BF4.

Don't make claims for your own sake. Not because you'll be called out or something, but ultimately because you'll feel betrayed by the company. I know I did...

Don't even get me started on that movie lmao. That movie freaked me the ****  out, and I knew it was going to. Hell, even WWZ did, and that was entirety unrealistic.

I'm glad all contagion movies are filmed though. We need more, with even more real science in them. They add awareness to an area of defense where a ton of improvements can be made. We are due for a supervirus :S

Bungie has specifically stated they will not be ruining their game with endless micro transactions, where players can simply buy their way to the top. I don't think you have very much to worry about  :) There will be micro transactions, although you will not be able to buy all the best gear with them. It just may make some of the grunt work, if there is much of that anyways (which I don't believe there is), much easier. And honestly, I will probably give myself a small monthly budget towards micro transactions if it means saving time at stuff I don't enjoy doing. Typically I play games to have fun  ;)

On another note, you may be underestimating how much saving there is in the long run with a $0 monthly subscription. let's be honest, with a game as complex as Destiny, with dynamic, living environments, as well as the massive complexity with multiplayer balancing due to the sheer amount of weapons and gear, Bungie will be dedicating a huge number of their team to Destiny after the game launches to be absolutely sure everything always stays a great experience for gamers. Very few games developers make this commitment! It costs a lot to keep writing the checks, not to mention any lost profit on other games they could be working on.

In short, I 100% guarantee you Bungie will not be taking a $h!t on their game by ruining it with MTs. They have too much riding on this title to make a mistake that stupid.

i had a lot of fun in Borderlands. Destiny is grabbing the "RPG elements in a FPS" and "drop in drop out co-op", evolving them a bit into more MMO-ish and letting Bungie do what they do best.. i hope it will be ok and i hope i have a lot of fun with it.. i'll believe it when i see it though, no pre-orders from me.


best case i think i'll really fall in love with the game.
worst case i'll try it and say "bye" to it.

I'm still playing Bordelands 2 with a friend that lives in Amsterdam... We have tons of fun. If Destiny is has good has that, with a good end game platform then I'll be more than sold. :)

You're absolutely right. A part of me is worried I'm making ignorant statements that I'll regret at a later time, but honestly, those concerns are continuously shrinking. Trust me when I say I have exhausted the web for every shred of Destiny news and tidbit of info. I am familiar with the ballooned hype of many games, and it absolutely sucks when it happens ;( but Bungie isn't your typical game company. Yes, their top priority is profit, but building a lasting gaming community who truly enjoys their creation is not far behind.  The Bungie team cares about this title more than anything they have worked on ever before. It's kinda like their baby. To me, there is too much evidence at this point to expect Destiny will be nothing short of an amazing, innovative game. There is of course that small part of me saying not to get overly excited for the very reasons you stated.. cause as we all know, low expectations are the key to happiness ;)

I think that is a big yes, yes, yes, yes and yes   ::)

All I know for sure is the Bungie team has specifically stated they want everything you do in the game to be meaningful. They hate long grind sessions just as much as you and I, and feel it ruins games. They are making it a point to keep that out of the game. In regards to being harder and more tactical, there will be an insane amount of weapon and gear customization and combinations. The developers themselves stated they don't even fully yet know all the weapon balancing. It's something that will always be changing. If any combinations prove to be overly powerful, and everyone starts getting annoyed from being beat by the same gear, it will be adjusted. I also hear there are some really tough raids, and other activities that are aimed at veteran players. The range of difficulty will include the whole spectrum

That's a good thing, halo is pretty fun, I really liked coop Halo ODST.  Borderlands coop was pretty fun too. Although I thought some of the quests drug on a bit. Sorting through massive amounts of loot with friends was not very much fun.

LOOOL! He is an actual person not an imaginary friend (of course if I was completely hallucinating that would be something I would say... :P). If you have BL2 we can play sometime. He's my "brother from another mother" that moved there a couple of years ago for work.

A more compelling, tactical (whether in PvP or PvE) and all around demanding game than BL seems to be the goal. In my head the game will be like a first person shooter WoW. #hope

yes. everyone thinks it's funny until i throw my 200 infinity clones in to the middle of terra's gifts (terramorphous loot) with that one singular gun they asked me for. and i'm not exaggerating on the number, i've thrown more.. then it's crying they don't find their little needle in the gunstack bwaah bwaaah while i try to not cry from laughing too hard.


Have you heard how the loot will work in Destiny? They have designed quite a great system.

back on the first reveal they had me at "everyone gets their own, no more fighting for loot or getting sniper when you are a gunner or a machinegun for a sniper blablabla".. everything was funny and cool in borderlands except the fights and madness of people trying to get the rare stuff when loot started to come out after raids. that sucked quite hard.

What ak said ^^^

Destiny utilizes a private loot system. This has a couple benefits. Most importantly, loot drops will be connected directly with your avatar and level. If you are a higher level, expect to get higher level guns and gear. You will not be pestered with low level items you don't need or want. And secondly, no one can steal your loot. Your loot stream is yours! Bungie wants loot drops to be special and fun. Expect big rewards less frequently than your typical RPG though. This is of course so all the best items don't flood the game to the point they become meaningless and annoying.

Something I'm really excited about are random events. The Destiny “living” universe is going to bring many new avenues to RPGs. For example, you could be minding your own business, exploring the landscape, when you notice some enemy troops up to something off in the distance. You can choose to sneak around, or confront them, most likely getting some reward in the process. You never know when or where a hostile group could appear, and it's your decision to attack or ignore them. I imagine you could possibly come across friendlies too, but this hasn't been discussed yet, just my speculation.  A public event is a little different, and was actually demonstrated in one of the videos Bungie released (It's in the gameplay video I linked in my original post). Essentially, when a large public event is occurring, or fixing to occur, a server dedicated to quality match making, could spawn you near the event, and you can complete whatever task is at hand with other Guardians who choose to take part.

Btw, thanks again for editing my post for me. Looks so much better! :D

i really value the decision to not let RARE loot become a "veteran badge", as in everyone not a noob has one.


that, for me which is someone that hates RPGs except Demon's/DarkSouls basically, is something i think should be mandatory in MMOs and MP RPGs.. Borderlands2 drop rates are cool in some cases but they are undermined by the random stats of the gun (which renders getting the better one's or the best suited to your gameplay jackpot or miss as it's impractical to repeat the raid enough times to get it) AND another layer of luck of the draw in some cases like mosquito raid boss spawn in max difficulty or once per playthrough enemies...


i don't want to feel cheated by the game's mechanics. if it's dumb luck then make them be dumb luck based for all. Destiny sounds theoretically very well though in the loot aspect, let's see if they really get the balance right.


and it's the same story for a lot of other details about this game. this is not my first rodeo and objectively the game sounds very right, but it's easier to be like that on paper. when the games are out and we check balancing and design or polish of everything THEN we'll see.





awww, but i am so good in seeing that one orange color in a sea of purple, blue and white :( :P

i'll make this short:

there are sites like wiki and such that are basically loot databases.
there are sites that let me custom build the loot so their parameters fit my needs or are at their best.
there are forums and sites with already built loot with a code i can just paste to get.
+
i can clone or make any loot
+
i'm a kind saddist
=
i have between 50 and 100 unique guns, nades, shields and mods in the backpack at all times that are basically the best items in game for my char and taste.

i mass clone each of those to give them to the people i encounter online. like 100 copies each infinity, 10 of the other guns and so on.




when people ask me for a gun, i make it rain... it's an entire water planet of orange, a sea of blue, 20 oceans of purple, 100 lakes of pink, etc. you won't be picking anything apart if i want to. and i normally do.. THAT's the fun part  ;D

Bungie is stressing they hate timesinks just as much as anyone, especially when it's highly repetitive and boring. In other words, they are keeping stereotypical timesinks out of the game! Of course, there are activities that are going to take a while towards getting a certain weapon or gear drop. You might have to kill a certain boss multiple times before you get the legendary weapon you are working for  ;)

Honestly.

I have yet to ever see a fpsrpg succeed. They are always hyped. Always begin well. Then get incredibly boring.

I mean maybe one day it will be done right. Unfortunay shooting other people will always be more fun than grinding npcs In a shooter.

Many have tried many have failed. Not due to bad mechanics or worlds or bugs. Simply due to theta t that running around and shooting aliens gets old.

At least in fantasy RPGs there is strategy involved.

I think I'll wait to see the dissapontment on people's faces. There was one not long ago everyone e here was playing...that lasted what? A week?

Tabula rasa is another. They all fail in the long run. However if its eer pulled off right it could've incredibly successful.

May e this one is it but my hopes aren't very high. Graphics are irrelevant.

We will have to see what happens ;)

There is tons of hype regarding Destiny. The game is going to have to be nothing short of amazing to keep up.

On the up side though, these are all things Bungie has factored in. One of their top priorities is create a universe that drives your desire to play more and more. They are attempting to achieve this with a hugely diverse amount of things to do, both solo, and with other gamers, whether they be friends, or random players around the world matched up for public events. From what I understand, the world map will show countless activities that are happening in real time around the game. You can choose to participate in whatever you like, and your personal ship will fly, and drop you off at the location.

Of course there is the competitive multiplayer too. Unlike many other RPGs with multiplayer, Destiny's multiplayer will be deeply tied into the entire game. This will be primarily through factions. Not much has been revealed yet in this area, but expect multiplayer and factions to be an integral part of the game.


You don't consider borderlands to be a fps rpg?

In fact, I think Borderlands 2 is the closest example to date of what Destiny is going to be. Although I believe Destiny will be expanding in many areas :)

There are a lot of free to play FPSRPGs out there and they mostly suck. That might be what Ninja is referring to.

That being said, if someone can spend 50+ days worth of hours playing COD for a year, I can see this being fun for at least a year. There's PVE and PVP elements in the game, so there's something for everyone.

Well, we will see how the beta goes.

Ninja I agree so much. But look at it this way, i'm not saying it will the best game ever.. Warframe is neat (not a fan myself) with pve. And bl2 is fun while co op pve , raids , dungeons .. I think its something hard to aspire yet worth the try, may, be insanely to mediocre fun ^^
Its something to play really..

The Bungie weekly update on the 1st was what pushed me into making this thread. All the hints suggesting the beta could arrive in just 8 weeks was too exciting to read.

One of my favorite Destiny news channels just uploaded a video over the weekly update. I've been waiting to hear what he thinks, and I'm really liking it  ;D

so it's always like this http://www.youtube.com/v/InsertVideoCodeHere&hd=1 inside of the stuff the "flash" button creates. it's the first button on the left in the 2nd row of post formatting/edit buttons, right before a pic of the monalisa.

and i suggest you change the size to 720,480 for HD stuff and less for stuff you want others to hear and not see.

you are welcome. you just need to isolate the video id, which comes after "watch?v=", and sometimes has stuff in front of it like "&hd=1". with practice you will get used to all the stuff that can be on the URL around the video id and it starts to be easy to isolate it pretty fast

New PS4 "sharing" commercial featuring Destiny, with 6 whole seconds of unseen gameplay :p

http://youtu.be/iTXN9uCd0mw


Speculation on just how massive Destiny's free roam world could be -

http://youtu.be/sVe28Nnw0Ow


Some good thoughts made in this video -

1. Skyrim had 100 employees working 5 years to create it
2. Destiny has 600 employees working 7 years, and many of these guys are seen as best in the industry
3. The game will include Earth, Europa, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Moon, Saturn, and more will surely be added.
4. Destiny could be 900km squared. That is 4 - 5 GTAV maps


There is also rumor Bungie could be preparing a pretty big news drop soon (1-2 weeks) :D

It's actually not ruled out that all platforms will share one world. Bungie has been tight lipped about it. Although it's very likely that PS4 and PS3 will share a server, likewise with xbox.


Yeah my fear is that I would need to buy a ps4 to enjoy it.....was hoping to not really need the ps4 lol....well we will see. Doesn't seem like you will be able to transfer characters either.

Definitely want to go with PS4  ;) The level of texture detail, not to mention increased resolution will be well worth it! Destiny is said to be pushing the limits of the PS3 and 360


Well lets see I might start getting excited around say late October? A little early at this point.

Prepare for TitanFall!

The beta will have been well underway by then. I'm sure we will know if Destiny is a win or a flop at that point.

But it's never too early to get excited!  :)

Don't get it twisted, I have been planning to buy a PS4 for some time, this just was a good enough excuse for me to plunk down the money (wife thinks the beta is around the end of March).

I'm not sure about the beta cut off. The current rumor on Bungie.net is that the PS4 beta is in May with the Xbox1 beta in June.  I dropped off $5 at my local Gamestop and on my recepit was my beta code. Easy as that.

Glad to see more XIM members as excited as me. If I was an Xbox guy I probably would have got a PS4 just for the early beta. Not to mention the graphical improvements you'll get. The more I learn about the game, the better it's looking.

As of now there is no cut off for pre-order beta access. I wouldn't wait too much longer though  ;)

i'm just trilled to see a "childhood" dream come true: an MMO i can have fun with because it's a shooter(FPS/3rd PS).


i never enjoyed MMOs because they have boring gameplay mechanics that would never stand on their own if the game wasn't filled with MMO depth.. but this feeling that Borderlands dropped the childsplay and got serious and badas$ is all i feel when the word "Destiny" is evoked. really hope this game doesn't disappoint!


game can't come soon enough, although i must say it getting out 3 days after my birthday seems like Destiny indeed.

i think so!

so we will never see you again come september huh? such a shame, you are still so low in post count and are such a promise (for interesting forum material) but RIP (respawn in peace) xD


Bungie is amazing with their marketing and hype building. i'm a very cynical and wary guy, and if you only take looks at Destiny via the mainstream gaming media you might be excited but no big deal.. however if one starts to buy in and looking at more thorough info about the game, dear Lord it's hard to resist the slow burn and siren calls that bungie instills..

and they worked so hard to crush the major flaws of the genres Destiny is taking from it really inspires confidence.. this game may be on its way to spearhead a complete new genre that casts a big shadow on gaming's future scene.



has bungie talked about procedural made levels/areas? or user generated areas? after halo i'm expecting the user made content to be a granted one..

Post by: Vatx on 01:51 PM - 03/21/14
It's a safe bet I'm gonna be on that game night and day lol. I may be absent from the forums for some periods, though as long as I own a XIM and use it, I'll be on the forums.  I haven't been on as much the past few days mainly cause I've been too busy enjoying the XIM4E  ;D Also going through a short addiction to the China Rising maps on BF4. Was up till 9am playing a couple nights ago  :o


I think Destiny is going to set so many standards for future games. Bungie is a very dedicated team. The developers are passionate about their game, and it really shows in the behind the scenes news. They are working every angle, marking sure every activity, from the huge raids, to getting around the maps, is a lot of fun. To anyone saying don't get too excited, I point out that the developers at Bungie are far from your ordinary team.


Bungie has mentioned they love all the fan based material their fans created with the halo series. While it's not confirmed (like so many other things), it's highly expected. I'm not sure what you mean about procedural levels. Areas of the game where your are on a predetermined set of steps to complete the mission?

You can count on it. I will be real upset if Destiny is a dud. Though I just have this strong feeling it's going to be the opposite. If I had the money, and balls, to back up what I thought was going to be successful, I'd be on a beach in Fiji.

Nothing has been said about entirely randomly generated levels, however it has been mentioned there will be maaany random aspects to the game. Enemies or friendlies could pop up anywhere at any moment. The weather could turn on you as your journeying somewhere. You never know what's going to happen.

I'm sure I'll get this game at some point, but likely not right away. I enjoyed what little of Borderlands 2 I played before Titanfall, and I'll be interested to see Bungie's rendition of an MMORPGFPS.

this sums it all up.


Vale i really have a good feeling about the game, it's easy to see the game has loads of potential. at worse it will be mediocre.. but the issue is it's very easy to break a game. turning a game from great or all time best to mediocre does not take much..


i have no idea the amount of content they will make but i know daily challenges and raids will keep things fresh. but apart from that it would be cool if the made an area dedicated to the engine randomly building an entire level with devs laying some guidelines for it to be hard - this as a way to keep veteran players with no way to feel that void of having "completed" every "mission/level" in the game

There is going to be a ton of content. There will apparently be so many things to do it will take even an experienced player a very long time to complete everything. They are designing every aspect of the game for tweaks and changes in mind. It's a platform built around flexibility, so expect things to evolve and change when it's needed.

As of now their is no news of levels that randomize each time you play them, though I think that idea would be cool too

one thing they get right is, no matter what you have under your belt, they will challenge every player from vet to noob and reward them accordingly ^^

any word on DLC, microtransactions and stuff? that's an easy way to break the game ahah

Post by: Vatx on 11:30 PM - 03/23/14
There will be expansion packs for sure, but I haven't heard anything about DLC. I think they are staying away from that. They want everyone to have access to the same, complete, world. The expansion packs would come out every year or so. Destiny will be a continuously growing world.

Micro-transactions are being included because there is no monthly membership fee. However, it has been stressed that you cannot buy your way to the top. They are very aware of how MT can mess up a good game. Most of the exotic gear you want will be won through difficult raids, quests, etc.

New Destiny update!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQmuFOc28Mk&list=UU-tncEziQJETCCgULaCEnyw&feature=share


Key points:

1. Virtually every item is customizable (some highly customizable), and upgradable. Your gear will stick around with your for the long-run, only getting stronger over time. Many add-ons/enhancements can be used on different gear.

2. Beta testers will be rewarded with gear that no one else can ever get.

3. Dynamic quests. These are quests that will be available for a limited time before disappearing. Apparently dignitaries and emissaries will arrive at The Tower (the central structure at the heart of civilization, your "home") from other planets. They will bring special missions that you must complete within a timeframe to obtain the reward. Players who miss their chance will be unable to get the reward items.

4. Future VR support built in, kind of. Destiny uses a visual rendering engine called Umbra (3.0). This makes it incredibly easier to generate a VR image since only one image needs to be processed, verses two independent, and gives the exact same effect. So if VR takes off over the next 3 years, which I promise you it will, expect VR support for Destiny rather quickly.  ;)


The beta is getting closer and closer guys. Preorder and get early access  8)

I would be happy about this if it wasn't for the fact no game designed from a 2D screen for a 2D screen will ever work or look correct in VR! These games need to be built from the ground up for VR in order for things to "look" correct in VR.

If you walk up to a doorway, and from 4-5m away in game it looks to scale, but then the closer you get to the door it looks to small! It will ruin immersion! That's one aspect, now take that and apply it to every piece of the game?

You can only hope they some how unknowingly built the game through a 2D screen and everything coincidentally just scaled properly when you stick a VR headset on.

Its either that OR they have been using OCVR to develop the game and just don't feel like sharing that information. I truly wish it would work, but the odds are stacked massively against it.

i'd be okay with gimmicky VR, it would be just a source of laughs to share with friends. what i would not accept is game making me puke, which is what tends to happen when a game is ported to VR half assedly..


we'll see @E3. if they don't announce anything then we're fine, as if the game gets VR it will be down the line and with enough time to get it right. if they do announce something so soon it could mean hit or miss.


you can have as low as a 2 man team working on scaling the whole game and they doing a fine job, but changing design and mechanics is hard. normal game mechanics are usually bad for VR. but from the images of the game i can see traits of VR design.. still i don't see bungie getting perfect 60FPS out of the PS4. how would they possibly manage that?! without that, no VR.


@Vale please report with special attention any info about the game's framerate. that will clue us in. even though it can be misleading as the game could have a VR mode where visual quality is toned down to allow for more robust framerate and other stuff.
also, if you see actions like "jumping 360º no scope headshot" or similar report back so we can dismiss VR for the game.

I would hope Bungie would release VR when it's ready. They only said VR is very optional if they want to do it in the future. There is no confirmation at this time, and the chances that VR come to the game even within 2 years is slim I think. It's just nice to know support is built in for when VR goes mainstream here in a few years.

@Yeesh - I couldn't imagine Bungie doing crappy VR that looks distorted. I definitely wouldn't use it, and I'm sure I would not be the only one. If they do VR, expect them to pull it off. You made a good point though. I'm going to keep an eye on that.

@ak - LOL! Your hype thruster post made me crack up. I've already been telling telling people to expect my disappearance around the beta and official launch. This will be a period of no life stuck to the PS4, I assure you. The key advantage to Umbra would be a high frame rate, but I see what you mean. 60fps is good for a monitor, but when you're talking VR, you honestly want closer to 120. I have no idea how they are going to pull off VR, but they have plenty of time to work it out.  ;)

@Slain - They really are the masters of building hype lol. Just got to deal with the trickle of information for a little longer. Apparently Bungie has been planning a blowout news event for weeks, and it's about to hit us.

@Od1n - *jab jab wink wink  Maybe you can sweet talk OBsIV or Orbital into making a ST early for the beta? I'm sure the movement mechanics will not change from the beta to official release, and if they did for some odd reason, not by much. It would be time well invested on their part. If it's in the rulebook not to do that, we need to get together and create the most natural feeling ST we can. I've learned just how important a good ST is since owning my Edge for a few weeks.  ;)

not doing STs for betas is an unwritten rule. don't get mist started on that..
you can try asking him (he's the one making it and all), if you do don't spare any sweet talking too, but i wouldn't get my hopes up. just hope the look mechanic is close to something else we currently already have..

i know exactly how those periods are. hey, some people travel the world, some do walkabouts, some go camping/hunting, some go sailing... we? we go be Heroes. Guardians of worlds and conquerors, bringers of death to realms. and we have quite the fun doing it to the point of mildly~severe addiction ^^


Sony announced the thing at GDC and i didn't hear no word or commentary on how they plan to specifically help devs or address the issue that a normal AAA game demands too much to get high framerates that are suitable for VR.

it'd be easy for Minecraft and heavy stylized games like 'No Man's Sky'. but Destiny would need to kill so much to get details down to the point they could pull something like 90fps. though, i have to say, that Umbra trick will be priceless. really it solves the issue of having to process an image into 2 and taking the hit from it..


anyway if they take their time with it then my confidence goes up from non-existent to relevant. as they can certainly pull it off with enough work. i wonder though if the investment isn't too large.. because bundling VR in for free is not too different than bundling, say, a port of a Halo game (if it was possible) in the sense that they work a lot to give us this big amount of content without any returns. when they could very well just present a fee to compensate the investment. regardless it's cool to dream of it. either way it's so far away that for now it's of little concern.


I'm fine that PS4 users get beta access and XB1 doesn't....but exclusive content? that's a bit much ....oh well, still sticking to xb1 for this....

it could be worse. Sony could have bought exclusivity rights and you wouldn't even have the game at all for your xbone.. you know, like MS did titanfall. you should be glad.

however though, one thing to keep in mind is, Intel, AMD and Nvidia had a panel on how OpenGL could have north of tenfold the performance with simple steps taken in the programming.



so it's not only something devs can do immediately, essentially netting OpenGL a free performance boost. it's also something VR will appreciate. (here is an example link: http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2014/03/20/opengl-gdc2014/)

That's true. This is a game I'm looking forward to enough that I might have ended buying a ps4 as well to play it if it were an exclusive. That being said, I may have to wait and see whether the player base on the xb1 is comparable enough to the ps4....
Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: ak-xs on 03:36 PM - 03/24/14
odds are player base in xbone will be quite fine. think about it, shooters are xbox's prime genre. no Halo5, no Gears before Destiny.. only Titanfall,COD and BF. so there should be plenty of space for a large player base really.


also i have an impression xbox owners favor western RPGs much like Playstation one's usually favor JRPGs.. if that's so, there's overlap for Destiny as it's both a shooter and RPG.


all that not mentioning the obvious: xbox owners = halo fans = want games from Bungie. particularly after some past fiascoes with Halo.

do we get several char slots so we can have one of each class or something? or is it one slot per player and we need to make choices?

currently i have no idea what class to pick and i can foresee how some might want to change class after investing some 100h into the game.. but changing from lvl X to scratch and losing all loot and all seems a bad idea.

I believe you can have several chars. I'm not sure if they had decided on static classes or classes based on weapons equipped. I would rather the latter.

The most exciting thing here is the incredible amount of customization. We already knew there would be a ton of different equipment and accessory items, however Bungie is taking it to another level and creating additional accessories and add ons for each piece, and on top of that you can change the texture of every piece. There will be more customization than has possibly every been seen in a RPG. This has me pretty excited honestly. Who whats to look like the player next to them? Lets hope it's as good as it looks.

I really just want the PvP to be solid and competitive, otherwise this is just another Borderlands style game to me.

I know that is pessimistic, but hey, I loved Borderlands. I just want more than repetitious PvE and co-op, that can only keep me hooked for like a week at most usually.

I am hopeful for the game though. It looks nice and since it is Bungie I think they know enough about good multiplayer to keep things exciting in Destiny. I do question their lack of a PC version though.

But sometimes they make these MMO's too big and then you have these "zones" that no one ventures to.

Then they become un-traverseable because there is nothing but high level mobs there and you have no one to help you out.

That may not happen in this game and I hope it doesn't.

Every player in destiny will have a personal vehicle to quickly get around the huge maps. If you ever find yourself stuck, and don't want to make your way back to a safe point, I believe you can call in your ship and it will pick up and drop you off somewhere.

This is not really an MMO though....Shared World Shooter is the term they are trying to push and it is much more instanced based I believe than most MMO's (though true MMO's have a lot of instances). I don't believe you can walk around in the world freely outside the city and see anyone else walking around...only people within your instance (matchmaking in a sense)

yup, got it. creating a "genre" means people will refer to "Destiny" as an example, instead of what currently happens that's associating Borderlands every time people bring Destiny up.. so it's good for Bungie to pull this off.


i think they deserve it if Destiny delivers... which i also thought was looking good, but recent news are shocking and will hurt the future of bungie a bit:

Obviously it is much bigger, better, and well designed, but it is something more akin to Defiance I guess.

Not really comparing the two, as Destiny is a much more quality title. But I'm just saying it's probably more comparable to Defiance than any other MMO.

that has bothered me since i first heard of Destiny. they require an always online platform anyway so no piracy no hacking issues, only a bit of a heavy cost for maintenance and PC developing but still would be investment made towards a much bigger market than next gen for instance..

i really don't get it. it's not a 1/2nd party game, it's not exclusive.. something stinks.

This is what they claim:
"We know there are a lot of people out there asking for PC and we know that there are a lot of gamers that would willingly give us money, but what we have to do is make sure we're focused enough to bring a good experience to any platform that we ship on. What we 100 percent are not going to do is spread ourselves so thin that it negatively harms the other platforms. So right now we have the four platforms, which is a lot to focus on."

Its not like porting a game to PC is that much extra work. They are developed on PCs and ported to whatever console. Add stability and testing for various video cards, etc, allow more customization, bla bla bla.

and Activision could pour a little more cash to outsource the PC port to another studio if they are really that pressed for manhours.

what i read from "spreading ourselves too thin" in my mind sounds "yeah game looks beautiful on those measly consoles so called next gen doesn't it? yeah, you know the time it would take to build a PC version and make optimizations for all that hardware PCs use? that's the time we needed to spend optimizing the game to make it look like this on those glorified Dreamcasts.."  ;D

Its not like porting a game to PC is that much extra work. They are developed on PCs and ported to whatever console. Add stability and testing for various video cards, etc, allow more customization, bla bla bla.

Spreading yourself to thin seems a weak excuse.


This is one thing that really bugs me. The PS4 and One are honestly both jokes.. They are just Sony and Microsoft playing it safe/smart. Our cell phones' will probably be more powerful in 5 years. I would much rather play a game like Destiny on a gaming rig.

Oh well  :-\ PS4 will do

5? next year's high end tablets should be able to compete. the year after high end devices will certainly be on par in terms of pure CPU and GPU.

console's only advantage will be memory and walled garden. if google came out with a dedicated game console in 1-2 years they could both undercut and overpower both consoles stacked with a mere mobile grade device.

they could also kill the dedicated handhelds at will. the sole reason these kind of firms don't smack the big 3 in the face is because their leaders have small narrow vision in the gaming industry.

Honestly i blame Valve. they could very well stop their non-hardware nonsense and blow everything else out of the water with 3 linux based device lines and a common double sided-platform (dividing into "mobile" and "desk", and with the games and apps marketplace sections)  to be born from steam.



i think even canonical could pull it of with crowdfunding if they wanted to. google is on the lookout for that though, wouldn't play ball.

It won't be until 2016 at least before we have mobile CPUs and GPUs as powerful as what's in the ps4. 5 years was a little conservative on my part. Technically we have them now, but they won't be ubiquitous in a year. Intel already has a 50 core mobile processor that is supposed to go mainstream in 2017 or 18. The Kepler k1 will be the most powerful mobile chip in the near term, and it is about 1.5x as powerful as the ps3 and 360 if I remember correctly.

But you never know! We are approaching the technological singularity faster than ever before

i agree but PS4/xb1 had chips from laptops custom tailored. if some big playa were to custom made a mobile chip the same way, we can get there a lot sooner than judging from the tablet/smartphone space. i have to say though, 2 antagonistic dichotomies meet in that idea: high end - smallest chips / mainstream gaming - lowest prices.

it would be hard, even for a Google, to low price such thing like the big 3 price their consoles until the chips used are found in highly demanded consumer devices. but, on the other hand, if i was involved in the process i'd target a linux custom build and a deal with the chip maker and enforcement on the content makers to set a scaling process rooted on the platform.


(what i mean by that is something like imagine if the game detected automatically your console version and adapted the settings to match the available resources, so that if you have a 1st gen device it would run the games on the equivalent of DX9 and if you had the 2nd gen device it would use DX11. meaning that, while it is a closed platform, software makers had proper tools so they could, with minimal extra work, design the game to run on several gens of the device thus allowing for smaller gens and broader reach.

in practice the gen cycle would be literally the same as PC and consoles, like a 5 year span of effective performance for each cycle. but instead of ONLY having 1 device in those 5 years, or the myriad of arrangements available to PC, there would be devices every 2-3 or so years and the key benefit on the new device would be better graphics,etc, but maintaining the ability for the previous gen devices to still play the same games without holding the newer one's potential back too much.

in terms of visuals this is relatively simple to imagine generically. but in terms of calculations it isn't at all, the upside is most games are not too demanding on CPU. the fact that it would be embedded on the platform at all levels and enforced should allow it to break the current status quo where making cross gen games is too much of a compromise. and for consumers a smart name in tick-tock fashion should prevent confusion and fragmentation while allowing for the poor to only have to buy new consoles every dozen of years like always, and the rich to be able to enjoy better more contemporary aesthetics by being allowed to upgrade mid way through the cycle.)


indeed. if we last 10 more years i feel like there won't be enough material to make electronics anymore due to them being literally in everything from clothes to walls, inside of us and in most tools humans use. it's a weird mix of exciting and scary at the same time ahah

Post by: ak-xs on 06:21 PM - 04/27/14
Games do this in a lesser amount currently, game engines now have optimizations for scaling and most do ok or even very well. but it's a far cry from what i was talking simply because of how the platforms now are: consoles low powered but stale and PC is fragmented to oblivion which means you can't scale easy since you have to account to a lot of variables... it's not that is it impossible, it just takes a lot of manhours and therefor money. closed platforms allow you full control of what you do on them and there are no variables, they are constants instead.


i'm not inventing the wheel here. you can see great examples of games scaling admirably by looking at the minimum requirements vs the recommended or the ones needed for full potential. engines like Unity and Unreal usually spawn games that scale in amazing ways. it's just a way for Sony or MS to make more money really, my theory. they would sell us a HD version instead of a Slim version of their consoles, and games would run on both just the same apart from graphics or loadings and multitasking. and to be honest all they would need to do is re-write their APIs to allow for a glorified SLI/Crossfire, where the HD version console had a 2nd GPU and the API divides the workload efficiently automatically with no need for manual work by the game devs.

the key factor are good API integration, enforcing it on the devs and since the HD version would be for the ones who can afford it, price would have a lot more leeway breaking the main issue that causes the current status quo.



even if the devs are lazy, things like Textures, Occlusion, Downsampling, resolution are all very easy to implement and would make such a difference it could justify the price. i don't believe Sony or MS would see numbers like >50% of the sales of the normal version by the HD version, but the premium cost and giving consumers what they want usually proves a good investment. look at the XIM, it's just a niche and giving people what they want but OBsIV is not exactly going poor from it and his profit margins are not like the big  3's.

kotaku is acting weird. they made a clickybaity title for their initial impression and filled it with amazing compliments to Destiny masked in skepticism. they also disclaim and almost rebut their own reasons for why they had some negative doubts about the game.. i think the article actually works pro Destiny more than any typical PR or shilling could ever. seems too fishy and elegant to be unintentional really. and knowing Buingie's MO i think they'd be ok with a move like that because marketing people probably can see and know how positively that will impact them. it's known to work if done right and ticks all the boxes of good PR (the article).

and in no way am i speculating that kotaku got paid or similar to play ball. just that the author might be doing this willingly. and there are a lot of ventures like this in marketing PR depite how moronic most game marketing is, some very smart people are to be found in the industry and their best tool is how convoluted and unnoticed they and their tactics are by the mainstream public.

Halo IP goes away from initial formula -> people rage and cry they want old Halo formula back with only natural evolution without losing identity completely.

Halo IP creators make game with Halo pedigree since it's still a shooter and made by the same people -> people rage and cry it's like the game they use to love and so they might not love the new game.

lesson: you just can't please all people. nitpicking will always have to point something out and there's always a good number of things to pick from.


(i don't mean any of that against anyone from here. just going by some of the reviewers or commentators of those "complains". some like willthetech just compare it without it being a complaint and other even mean it as a praise since they loved Halo and would give an arm to have a proper sequel)

you have exploration triggered events, "random"/"chance" events, raids, PvP, co-op and lone wolf modes plus some variations of the mentioned(at least PVP) so i think it ticks the WoW and BLs parts. everyone that played and unanimous viewer opinion is it looks and feels like Halo. so all in all i think it is.


i think the trope is cool and mixing myth, sci-fi tech, alien thread and post-apocalyptic scenery is is great. i won't vouch for it not being bland but i can't say the same for almost any other FPS in terms of story to a mild degree.. it's subjective though so salt..

you need to realize that low level enemies are boring in any RPG-ish. don't lose hope yet. expect borderlands like AI and design though, which is not a design known to be anything more than easy to face as long as you stick to your level enemies. facing +5lvl enemies in BL2 is a cool way to die in frustration though as no matter how good you are, you'll run out of ammo before killing the boss LOL


learned that lesson in BL1 and never tried that stunt again so naively. i had to use a friend as sacrifice, scape goat and bait for like 5 minutes before realizing if i didn't get us out of there we would just both die without accomplishing anything more. had already got some amazing loot and broke the game then and there for a few missions/lvls and just rushed to find one of the objectives which was collecting some crystals and ran out of there crying like a little girl, i was literally crying.. but from laughing though and my friend was quite pissed at the dog bosses and me.


man he was so mad even after a week he wasted ALL of his ammo and available ammo there killing those dogs and beating the corpses. i had to physically drag him out of there.. x'D

It has also been confirmed that Destiny is in fact a true free roam world. If you want to travel across the entire map seamlessly, you can do that ("Patrol" game mode). It might just take a little while even on a vehicle. You can meet other players you come across in the expanse. Raids, and strikes are closed off. Only you and your teammates can go into these game types. Public events in the free roam area are accessible to anyone, however there is a limit to the number of players involved.
Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: ak-xs on 10:03 PM - 05/05/14
i'm wondering if there will be massive public events. where teams (which have a max of 6, 3+3) can participate en mass, (lets say something like 3-4 teams, 3x3 or 3x4.) would be cool to have such high level raids to keep things challenging.


the reason i say that is i'm not very hard trying to get a score generally. DevilMayCry apart i'm always to numb to it and unmotivated. but fight or flight? i turn beast mode on automatically and pull stuff out of my behind xD
always perform better when my life is on the line, virtual or real.

I sure hope so. Massive public events would be too fun for them to leave out!  ;D

That's a good question. I'm going to ask Bungie!

I bet they will have large ones, they will just come less often then the regular ones. Maybe once a week, once a month, or even daily. Who knows. I don't remember that question ever being answered in a mail sack. It would be awesome if they answer me!
Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: ak-xs on 12:36 AM - 05/06/14
from my very crude and limited grasp of their system, it is my understanding a lot of effort was put in place to control loading times and in and outs of players to make it a seemless experience.

the reason they limited the teams to 3, i'm sure has something to do with pure design, but was, as said by them, also conditioned to the limits of the platforms in order to maintain that level of seamless experience.

so, with that in mind, i'm sure big raid events will not be easy for them to manage. despite that i think they can do it no problem. and very much like you just said, it would be great if it's not a common event in order to really convey a sense of scale and lengend feeling.

can you imagine we talking in 2-3 years like this:
"so Vale are you going to the fallen mass invasion event next month? some people said it won't be as epic as the massive faction clash last year, but it will still be better than we had that Mars World war.."  ;D

Activision places $500 million bet on its next blockbuster franchise

Activision Blizzard Inc intends to spend $500 million developing and promoting "Destiny," potentially breaking industry records as it seeks to build the sci-fi role-playing videogame into its next multibillion-dollar franchise.

CEO Bobby Kotick revealed the number, which dwarfs Hollywood spending on some of its biggest firms, during the Milken conference in Los Angeles last week. A company spokesperson said on Monday the number was accurate but also included marketing, packaging, infrastructure support, royalties and other costs.

Activision, eyeing the flagging growth of its long-running "Call of Duty" action-shooter franchise, is eager to lay the foundation for its next multi-game blockbuster series.

Investors hope that "Destiny," scheduled for release on September 9 from Bungie, the same studio that created Microsoft's best-selling "Halo" franchise, could re-invigorate Activision's revenue, which slid 6 percent in 2013.

The company signed a 10-year contract with Bungie in 2010 that gives it worldwide distribution rights and significant control over the potential franchise's development.

"If you're making a $500 million bet you can't take that chance with someone else's IP," Activision CEO told the Milken conference. "The stakes for us are getting bigger."

"Destiny" is a cross between a traditional shooting game format and a role-playing game in which gamers play characters in a real-time online world. The title allows gamers to play "Guardians" who protect the last city standing on a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Analysts said $500 million would likely be a record spent on a single game - especially one without an established track record. To break even, Activision would have to sell about 15 million to 16 million units of a $60 game, analysts said.

"It's a head scratcher, said Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia. "For brand new IP, it's tough but it could post a big surprise."

Bhatia expects the game will sell 8 million units. "Grand Theft Auto V," which hit stores last September, was a runaway success with over 32.5 million units as of February this year. But it was the fifth installment of a critically acclaimed series that had become an indelible component of popular youth culture.

RECORD BY ANY NAME

Some analysts estimate that Take-Two Interactive, the publisher of "Grand Theft Auto," spent over $260 million to develop, produce and market the fifth installment, though it's unclear whether that's comparable with Activision's own $500 million figure.

GTA is on track to reach $2 billion in retail sales, according to analysts.

"Bungie's very ambitious plan is designed to unfold over a 10-year period, "said an Activision spokesperson. "The depth of creative content, scope and scale is unprecedented and is required to bring Bungie's vision to life."

The spokesperson added that investment in the next generation engine and a "robust backend infrastructure are upfront expenditures that should reduce future product development costs."

"Over the long term, we expect the ultimate product costs to be roughly in line with other Triple-A titles."

Activison's big bet comes as hits are getting harder to come by. The industry is struggling with a years-long sales slump, the result of increasing competition from free-to-play games on smartphones and tablets. Video game software sales plummeted 11 percent last year from 2012.

Sales of Activision's 2013 title, "Call of Duty: Ghosts," proved weaker than its 2012 installment.

Over time, Activision's "Destiny" could hit large numbers "but there's no way they would come close to Grand Theft Auto," said Mike Hickey, an analyst at the Benchmark Company.

Still, Activision's executives say they see franchise potential in its new game.

"We expect 'Destiny' to be Activision Publishing's next billion-dollar franchise," Kotick said when the company released its fourth quarter earnings on February 6.

The company, which reports first-quarter earnings after the closing bell on Tuesday, saw earnings slide 12 percent to $1 billion in 2013. Its revenues dropped to $4.6 billion, from $4.9 billion the year before.

It generates significant revenue from its franchise properties, but many of those are several years old. "Call of Duty" has had a decade-long run while "World of Warcraft" was first released in 2004.

Franchises enable game publishers to generate steady revenue from several iterations, as well as digital sales from additional downloadable content.

Activision could use another money-making shooter game franchise, said Hickey, the Benchmark Company analyst.

"It's up to management to create new experiences to drive forward growth over a game that could be aging a bit," he said. "I'm not saying 'Call of Duty' is like that, but everyone is concerned about fatigue and competition."

Game looks great, pre ordered mine awhile back, can't wait for beta.   

I think people are maybe getting a little too excited though,  Its a progression based game.  world of warcraft with guns. Which is fine it's gonna be really fun, but I probably wont even need my mouse for this, casual controller style. At least from the trailer footage I've seen.  Is there PVP? I haven't seen any, and it looks like all the players are on the same side.  Games like this are awesome with different factions for players to side with and go to war with each other.

PvP is going to be demonstrated and playable at E3 (June 10-12th). We will learn nearly everything on this date, and hopefully some sooner.

I will play PvP just as much or more than the rest of the game. It's supposed to be a pretty complex PVP. Tooons of different combinations. Bungie isn't sure what's going to happen, and plans to make a lot of adjustments during the beta.

Currently I only play PvP shooter games. So I'm very excited for the Destiny PvP ::)

Theres a way to get beta access with a simple trick. I found a loop by accident and realized it was already posted on YouTube.

Preorder the game through Amazon.. this will require a credit card of course. Youll immediately get an email containing the beta code. Cancel your pre order. Done.

Your credit card does not get charged.

e.g not posting the beta codes until closer to the beta release date..

i wish Sony would let us hear our own mp3 while playing Destiny. i find that a Fury of the Storm or Through the Fire and the Flames or 2 are in order to summon the true Dragonforce in-game.. even something as calm as Imagine Dragon's Radioactive should be great for stomping PvE early levels until PvP unlocks and upgrades unfold..



man i need to decide on a class to start with (even though i'll nail down all 3 eventually if the game's good) and can't settle between Warlock and Rogue.. we should poll it maybe..

I highly doubt you would get in trouble. It's not illegal. Just wait a few days to cancel. I'm going to do the same through Amazon, just not going to be obvious and cancel it immediately. I'll wait a couple days.

Asilver, the beta will most likely be available in June for Play Station users, and July for Xbox. There is also a chance it could be July and August. But that would make me angry at Bungie lol.

Is it confirmed the ps4 beta will last a whole month before xbox one beta? I read that the ps4 beta will come first, but it didn't say for how long...

How will this game be hosted? Bungie doing servers? Or will the xbox version run on Microsoft azure network? I think I might rather play an mmo on microsofts network vs whatever sony's network is, although destiny isnt a real mmo, more like a mmo simulator. But I might wanna play the beta on ps4 if its a whole month longer.
Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: Vatx on 06:14 PM - 05/21/14
It is confirmed the beta will arrive for PS users a full month before xbox.

I believe the servers will all be managed by Bungie themselves. They are investing $500 million into this game, and will have staff on duty literally 24/7 to deliver new game content every day. Bungie is going all in on this one

The real question is; what was the last hugely successful MMO? How many have there ever been? Three? Is an MMO really worth a $500 million investment right now? I would say not and Destiny better have a lot more going for it than I've seen if they want to make a profit off of this game. 
Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: Vatx on 09:28 PM - 05/21/14
Lol, it would be realllly bad if that happened. But too much has been invested in this game to fail. It's already close to beating the current record of most preorders ever sold.

But like you said, it probably isn't going to fail  ;) The more I learn, the better it looks. I really cant wait to step into the world!

The Division looks like it may be better, 2 different factions for world pvp is a must for an mmo. I'm looking forward to both games though. Titanfall, destiny, division are the only games I have any interest in.

Ya but those 7 factions are not the same thing. Having 2 or more dedicated factions at war with each other, i.e world of warcrafts's Horde vs Alliance is awesome, and is how the Division will be I believe.  The division is the line between the 2 factions at war with each other, correct? (line looked like a river), body of water)We saw in one of the first teaser trailers a group of players run into an opposing faction and engage in world PVP. Destiny will not have world PVP as it's not a true MMO, so factions are not so significant in that aspect.

Destiny will have the best raiding, as raid bosses and stuff will be way better with a sci fi/fantasy background to allow for all kinds of different giant boss fights.

Division being based around a virus stricken apocalyptic New York, has no background for any type of big traditional raid boss, its just humans running around scrounging for supplies and stuff for survival it seems. I think its gonna focus more on world pvp than any kind of end game raiding.

"The Division" is a special government task force called to action in a time of national emergency. It's not a literal division between two factions.

I think Bungie has too much riding on this game to allow it to flop. It's also very close to breaking the most pre orders record.

If certain aspects of the game suck, Bungie has designed the code to be very easy to change. One of the main things they keep saying is, Destiny will be very adaptable. It will change with the community over time. If something really sucks in Destiny that no one likes, expect it to get removed and replaced pretty quickly. 

The upcoming beta will be perfect to test the waters. I can't wait to get on some multiplayer :p

And I realllllly hope the aiming isn't as slow as Halo. If it is, that would be a deal breaker for me. Though I believe this has already been addressed. Someone from Bungie said aiming is quicker if I remember correctly.

E3 is so close now! Just 5 days till there is a huge Destiny conference. Be on the look out for lots of new info in the 9th and 10th. They will be releasing footage of all the areas you can travel to, among many other things. So far we have only seen Old Russia.

The first video explains a question brought up a few times in this thread. Will you be able to run into other gamers when you are free roaming? Yes. Apparently, within the entire world of destiny exists seamless  bubbles. Private areas are used primarily for missions with your squad, though public areas are in large abundance also, and you could run into anyone. From what it has been sounding like, the vast areas in Destiny are pretty incredible. It is truly a "next gen" game.


Here are a couple new videos to watch for the latest news-


Secret Areas, Lightbar Prompts, Destructible Scenery, Customizable Ships, Sparrow Stunts, Loadouts, Massive Levels

I was running around in a small group, blasting @#$% left and right with a sick gun. Dreams like that make me want full immersion VR immediately haha.


Here is another leaked video. This time of a small public event.

The full 20 minute video of the other leaked footage is also available to download.


It's also been discovered the beta could come only 4 days early for playstation. I was really hoping to get it a month in advanced.. But whatever. That's good for you xbox people :p


After watching all this footage, I'm a little underwhelmed at the PS4 graphics.. My main fear all along was the graphics would get dialed back, or the physics engine wouldn't be exciting. A lot of the maps look very static, and some textures are dull. Granted, the video quality wasn't exactly the highest, but you can kind of tell. Just another example of how crummy "next gen" really is. Still, for $399, it's not bad. The original PS3 cost Sony $890 to manufacture.. Now that was "next gen" for its time. However as soon as Destiny is made available for PC, I'll be playing it on a gaming rig.


The game looks fun for sure. I really want to see some competitive multiplayer. Just 1 or 2 more days  :)

I wouldn't be concerned about eye candy at this point. Things to look for are gameplay, art direction, animations, interaction, combat. It reminds me a lot of Defiance. People are comparing it to Borderlands but I think those people have never seen or played Defiance.

God, I hope it's nothing like defiance, bored after a week, same @#$% over and over.

I don't think it will be though, this games been invested in Heavily!

Yeah, those are good points. I hope they boost textures a little over the next few months. Good looking graphics always make a game more immersive for me.

The idea with Destiny is, you will be able to highly customize your character and equipment to your liking. Bungie wants you to appreciate your character. Most of the game will be FP, but in small instances like some specials, and at the tower, you will be able to look at your own gear setup.

I personally think it's neat getting to see yourself do a special move. I would rather see the effects from a slight distance, vs having all the swirling lights in my face.

This may sound bitchy, but i'm being honest when i say:

I love your enthusiasm for this game. I really wish i could still get this hyped for games again..
I've just been burned way to many times now though.

I want nothing more then for this to be a really good game, but so far anyone worth there salt that has touched this game has walked away feeling a little underwhelmed, the jury is out, and no matter what they show at E3 i wont be moving a inch until we get to play the beta!

I can see how on paper this game should be amazing, but lets see if they execute it properly!
Its less about little hand gestures and more about the fun your having while on raids or PVP..

The Tower features and everything you can do there should be looked at as secondary.
I don't want to hang around in a Tower making gestures or sitting cross legged on some futuristic astro turf like some sort of EMO ECOOL EJIT..

I want to shoot bishes in the FACE GODDANG IT!

YEESH,

Haha I don't blame you. I do not play too many games, but I am aware of how many are hyped to max, and don't perform. I really really hope Destiny does not turn out to be one of those. Like you said, this game looks and sounds perfect on paper. But for how long will it be fun to play?

I've been wowed a few times by trailers, but things are getting stale. I'm ready to see more of the game. Looking forward to something good tomorrow.

Thanks I have a better feel for this game after that last video. It's definitely halo meets defiance meets borderlands. I'm still getting a stronger defiance vibe over the other games though, hopefully they found ways to keep it entertaining. It could be fun with a group.

I believe Obsiv has said the touchpad will be looked at after launch. I'm hoping for at least touchpad pass through to be one of the first new features post launch. Some games just can't be played without it.

Use the Halo 4 ST, it's almost identical. Acceleration is off but micro movement, angles and overall feel are on point. It's faster than Halo too.. hip is somewhere between Halo4 and BF3. ADS is at least CoD ADS fast, maybe faster? I don't play a lot of CoD lately.

ROFL..

Love the game so far, wish it was 60fps! 30fps is hurting my already tired eyes..
There are little hidden boxes here and there, not as many as you would expect to find in a MMO..

But i got one or two pieces of "OK" gear in them.
Got some Lv9 loot, need to get my dirty little rank on though.

I've followed this game like an obsessed fanatic since last February.  Can't even begin to tell you how many hours of video and twitch stream I've watched this week....


For any in the Alpha... how are the handcannons and scout rifles in PVP?  Bungie stated in the Podcast back in September that a handcannon in PVP was a two headshot kill.  I was wondering how the primary slot semi auto precise guns were playing in PVP for the XIM community.

The shotguns and assault rifles seem to be the favorites for quite a few people I've been watching on Twitch.


Side note, the kill times of this game looks like it is smack dab in the middle of CoD pace and Halo 2 pace (faster than any Halo game, just a tad slower than CoD (excluding supers)).  Anyone in the Alpha care to comment how they feel playing it with a XIM?

Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: Choo on 08:46 PM - 06/12/14
Another important question for those in the Alpha....



How is it switching into the Sparrow and driving around the maps?  Seems like Sparrow summoning and riding is going to occur a lot.  Players can even summon their sparrow in PVP to traverse the map quickly (it doesn't shoot, but it is like 3x faster than running).  I was watching a PRO halo player (controller) getting around the moon PVP map quickly, going from capture point to capture point.  My concern is it will be hard for a xim player to maneuver quickly around in the sparrows.

bummer on the hit detection if true.. halo 3 was my least liked halo.  2, CE, and Reach for me.. oh ya.. then 4 :-/

As for 30 FPS, as long as it is consistently 30 without any drops, i probably won't care.  I played so many days worth of Halo :)

I've played the ALPHA long enough to have both a Hunter and Titan at or near the max level of 8 for this particular testing period, most of my time was spent in PvP, although, I have done a few hours worth of what PvE was / is available.  My brother and I killed this giant robot thing (Forget the name), it took us well over 30 mins to kill the bastard without getting any reward for the effort other than to be able to say we have killed it.  The PvE is lacking only because in this build of the game there does not seem to be any penalty for dying, we died countless times trying to kill that big bastard and most of those deaths were us purposely killing ourselves because we ran out of ammo and had no idea where to get more without there being any smaller NPCs to kill (They drop ammo).

The AI for PvE seemed decently challenging, at least it surpasses what my expectations were after hearing so many people claim it was / is easy.  The game needs  to punish people for dying, other than that the PvE was more engaging than Borderlands 2 (The only game I could  compare it to)

PvP wise the game is fun, the one forest map is rather unbalanced though given that the walk from A to B is all of 5 seconds while the walk from C to B is a good few seconds longer with no opportunity to engage from a distance.  The team that locks down A & B wins that map, I found myself simply walking back and forth defending those locations because I could do it easily with little risk of being surprised.  The other map located on the moon has a better layout if only because each location is about the same distance apart, it's harder to lock down and with them spread out far enough the near instant re-spawn counter doesn't bother me as much as it does with the forest map. (Sorry I'm terrible with names)

The special powers I feel need to be looked at, the Titan ability seems to be almost too much of a "get out of jail free card" due to the clutch nature of the slam ability.  At least with the Hunter you need to aim, the Titan slam people can use in a panic and still get favourable results quite easily.  No comment on the Warlock since I have yet to try playing one.

Most everyone plays as a Hunter (Random fact I've noticed)

Overall great experience, must buy for any next-gen owner.  Most fun I've had in an ALPHA / BETA for a long time, I generally get sick of them fairly fast but with this one I didn't quite reach the point of boredom.

I was actually kind of worried about the assist fighting against me when XIM is finally released like it did with Defiance but going by a few posts it looks like it won't be too bad.

I've tried for many headshots as it keeps going for the enemies chest.

I haven't played it... But watched a TON of stream...

Vehicles in games just add another element of gameplay.  For us ximmers, we usually all prefer non vehicle play, but i can appreciate these vehicles a lot based on my gaming with halo and battlefield. 

I watched ninja (pro halo player) dominate the moon map.  Just kill the intercepters and put your self in power positions.  He had 44 kills and and 3 deaths

I'm using Halo 4 settings and they are pretty spot on.

I'm also using Halo 4, it seems perfect to me. My only problem is in mapping the buttons properly since it's a 360 ST.

I'm using XIM4E and I've mapped every button just fine except jump, I want jump on my second trigger button on my Sony Nav (the inside smaller trigger).

Being that I'm looking at 360 buttons on my mobile phone it confuses me. I would just leave it on my BF4 ST but the aim is to slow and the Halo 4 one is perfect to me. Now to just figure out how to map jump to where I want lol.

Amazing game BTW, best game of this genre I've ever played. It's that polished already in alpha.

pull up the halo4 ST on manager and then map an action to a button on your setup. Press that button to see what it does, then map to the button you would like.

I can't give you my settings off the top of my head because I'm at work.

But what you're describing is what my controls felt like when I tried using the BF4 ST. I switched it to Halo 4 and it went away. Mine turns lightning quick now.

I think I'm gonna love the PVE in this game. I cant wait to strike and raid. I really am not feeling the MP though....  It's slow and basic,  I mopped kids up so easily..  Like it was call of dooty or something..  Like Halo but inferior shields on players.. and that stupid high jump everyone has just makes them easier to shoot lol. The Warlocks is the worst.... Its like... "HEY SHOOT THIS!!!"

Titanfall will be my pvp game, I'll play Destiny for PVE.

The new COD looks interesting though, increased movement with dashes and jumping It might actually warm that noob fest game up.

There is one of these "bosses" or enemy in a cave / tunnel just below the road leading upto the radio tower..

There is two lesser enemy standing outside you kill them then you notices the small hole in the cliff face, with a couple of shrubs and bushes guarding the entrance lol.

Thank you.

At first glance it may seem confusing but it's really easy. If you ever had and used it on Edge it's the same method just instead of PS3's start+select combo it's options+touchpad press.

Options + Touchpad button - Will enter edit config mode. You can edit hip/ads sensitivity with the dpad in this mode.

Guide - Pressing the guide button, or PS button in edit config mode will enter button bind mode. In this mode you press a DS4 button and then assign it to one of your peripheral buttons. Example: push square on the controller then push R on your keyboard.

Options + Touchpad to exit out of edit config mode. Sensitivity and Button changes are saved.

played a good amount of hours now, and personally i need to say, what a disappointment
game in its current stage brings me close to cancel my preoder

PvE is ok, but PvP is worse than much F2P i played lately...

- insane amount of aim assistant, never played a game with more
- half turnspeed while running, what an odd idea
- slightly less turnspeed while jumping, what sense does that make...
- cannot shoot while gliding
- general movement is extremly clunky, you just cannot develop a proper movement flow because each jump is taking away a noticeable amount of your running-pace
and jumping is required left and right, means you deaccelerate quite often
- gliding is a toggle feature by default on the controller instead of a hold feature, and since i cannot shoot while gliding i need to double click in order to shoot again after a double jump
so much potential wasted if you want to be competitive, wow
- vehicles are too strong and too much on the map
- Special Attacks except for the Golden Gun are a guaranteed "get me out of this situation" card even for the biggest noobs
but seeing how much aim assistant there is even the Golden Gun is an almost guarantee
- movement speed is too low, even Halo 4 was faster i think

if the beta isnt going to change at least the movement to be more fluid and responsive ill cancel the preorder
i had really high hopes in this game, and while PvE is enjoyable for me, the PvP is simply one of the worst AAA shooters ive played so far

This is Alpha, and although you know that, it's mandatory that i tell you! (*interweb rules!*)
I completely agree with everything you said about movement.

I don't really use the Special ability so i can't comment lol.

I've reached maximum level for the Beta so i may try some PVP tomorrow. (had some awesome Lv9 gear that i wont get to ware :( )

The amount of auto aim feels just right for me using a controller, which is what the game is intended to be played with..

There are some murmurs of this coming to PC, we'll see I'd love that more then anything,

I'm really enjoying the Alpha tbh. I've scoured every inch of the available map..

Using the homing beacons to do missions on another section of the map gets a little tiresome travelling backwards and forwards.

I will say this though, the maps and areas available need to be Waaaaaaaay bigger if they wish to keep me interested.

for those that want "no aim assistant" and a "higher turnspeed", maybe post there to bump it

Whats your dpi and hip settings? I'm on 4000 dpi with 30 hip and it takes me my whole mousepad to 180, and using vehicles I have to constantly pick up my mouse just to make a 90 degree turn. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just me?

I am using a G700 at 5700 DPI, 500 ms polling rate. My hip settings are 36.35, and ADS 35.27. But I am still trying to refine it.

Wow, those bastards never sent me a code. It's a good thing I just decided to buy one off eBay.. Cost me $22.50, not bad.. Worth it to me.


I have had a lot of fun in the alpha so far! It looks like there will be plenty to do in Destiny once it officially launches in September. I do have a lot of things I would like changed however.


1 - Why the @#$% does your turn speed drop to a 1/10th when you are running??!! This is my number one gripe. I absolutely can't stand it.. This has GOT to change.

2 - Movement speed in PvP is too slow. Feel really strange playing, especially on the Old Russia map. The Moon map is alright.

3 - Can't shoot while jumping.. Seeing as it takes like 3 seconds to jump, it would be nice to defend yourself.

4 - The Titan special can be hugely annoying. I can't tell you how many times now I surprised someone, nearly killing them, only to have them activate the super real quick. Very annoying. The Titan special needs to change to something that requires more talent. Not sure about the Warlock class, I haven't played it at all.

5 - The vehicles are sooo OP. Like, seriously?? I was watching that Ninja guy go 45/2 flying around in vehicles absolutely destroying people. If you are on foot, good luck.  You'll need it.

6- I'm assuming there will be MUCH more character customization in the Beta and final build.

7 - So many places you can't go. I was expecting Destiny to be a wide open world.


To everyone who has noticed the hidden dungeons with all the level ? ? ? ?. I have come across at least 6 or 7. I'm assuming they are just areas you are not supposed to complete in the alpha. I imagine they will open them up in the beta.



Does anyone want to play? I've gotten bored finally of running around solo. Destiny was meant to be played with friends.

Here are my settings

Max in game sensitivity

G502, 12k dpi, 500 polling

ADS - 15
HIP - 140 (this is to counteract the huge reduction in turning speed when running)

Vale, consider setting up a setting switch and set it's activation key to the same key as sprint. Set it to "hold" so that when it's released you are returned to your hip setting. The advantage of this is you can have a normal hip sensitivity and activate a higher sensitivity only when you are sprinting.

played a good amount of hours now, and personally i need to say, what a disappointment
game in its current stage brings me close to cancel my preoder

PvE is ok, but PvP is worse than much F2P i played lately...

- insane amount of aim assistant, never played a game with more
- half turnspeed while running, what an odd idea
- slightly less turnspeed while jumping, what sense does that make...
- cannot shoot while gliding
- general movement is extremly clunky, you just cannot develop a proper movement flow because each jump is taking away a noticeable amount of your running-pace
and jumping is required left and right, means you deaccelerate quite often
- gliding is a toggle feature by default on the controller instead of a hold feature, and since i cannot shoot while gliding i need to double click in order to shoot again after a double jump
so much potential wasted if you want to be competitive, wow
- vehicles are too strong and too much on the map
- Special Attacks except for the Golden Gun are a guaranteed "get me out of this situation" card even for the biggest noobs
but seeing how much aim assistant there is even the Golden Gun is an almost guarantee
- movement speed is too low, even Halo 4 was faster i think

if the beta isnt going to change at least the movement to be more fluid and responsive ill cancel the preorder
i had really high hopes in this game, and while PvE is enjoyable for me, the PvP is simply one of the worst AAA shooters ive played so far

Completely agree. The feel of aiming entirely ruins Destiny for me and truth be told it's nothing special to begin with. Destiny comes off as Warframe with much better presentation.

If they don't fix or provide options to fix the aiming mechanic by beta or address the issue by launch I'll have no problem giving this game a pass.

Post by: Od1n on 08:03 PM - 06/13/14
phil i found that the warlock feels much more sluggish than any other character, best movement has the hunter
if you happen to have played a warlock so far give the other classes a try

while its not as good as a fix it makes it at least enjoyable

Bolt, map on the fly in game without manager if that confuses you. Options + touchpad button, guide button, press desired ds4 button, assign to peripheral button, repeat, options and touchpad to save and exit that mode.

Boltman, FYI this did not work for me until I disconnected my XIM from the Android manager.

so from what i am grasping all predictions were on target. game with potential but skepticism is more than warranted. not as hilarious as Borderlands. Bland shooter. Not on par with Halo in respects to PvP. and they obviously didn't get the hand holding versus depth for the hardcore just right at first try...

sounds like a "wait for bargain" list candidate to me (for the record i throw good games there along with bad ones so it's not very telling. i just don't throw cult software,based on my tastes, in there).

thanks guys for the impressions. someone tell activision to throw a few dozen millions more at bungie, the more money they waste the less they have to perpetuate and expand their cancer on the gaming industry's body.

Boltman, FYI this did not work for me until I disconnected my XIM from the Android manager. So you'll need to set your Destiny ST to a hot key, reset your XIM (unplug it then plug it back into your PS4) hit the hot key and then do the option plus touchpad thing.

Note what your sprint key is bound to, you can also lower your hip sensitivity to something that feels comfortable.
(http://i.imgur.com/fI7Ybob.png)


In Manager scroll to the right past ADS and enter a name into the text box to create a new setting page. Set the activation key to whatever Sprint is bound to in your Hip setting. Set it's behavior to hold. Now when you hold sprint you will also activate this setting until you let go. Set the sensitivity in this new setting to a high value to compensate for the slow turning while sprinting.
(http://i.imgur.com/TOVL7Ss.png)

You can set this to either hold or toggle. Setting it to hold assures that you will always be brought back to hip if you let go of the sprint key. If you had it set to toggle and you died then you would have to remember to untoggle at some point when you respawn, otherwise you're stuck in your sprint setting. Another thing is if it's set to toggle, if you were to ads during a sprint it wouldn't actually activate your ads setting. You would still be in your sprint setting. Hold is the best way to do it if you don't mind holding the sprint key.

This is what a Destiny developer

"There's a rumor that the Destiny alpha might be extended to allow dangerous experiments. Play beyond the official close at your own risk!"

Wow.. So work was horrible slow. I made $0. Sat on my laptop all day watching Ninja stream Destiny PvP, longing to play it myself. I get home, log into the game, and 10 minutes later the alpha ends lol.


What a tease..


Anyways, the alpha was amazing. I really enjoyed the game. It will however take a LOT of getting used to the controls. I really hope they take everyone's advice and improve the turning speed while running, and find a way to boost frame rate. It was a huge adjustment from CoD. I'm used to a 2.8k/d, and I probably averaged 1.3. It got pretty frustrating at times, but no less the fun. I was definitely improving as muscle memory and experience set in.


Heres to the beta in 30 days!!  ;D

I think what he means is, Alpha is usually nothing like what we played these last 4 days or so..
 
This was most defiantly NOT an Alpha, it was a very polished part of the game, deployed as a marketing tactic to get more people to pre-order the game for the "beta" in July and full release in September.

Apparently what we played was "only!" 10% of the final game.. (or less then 10%)
I hope it was more like 1% because this game is going to be a lot smaller then i originally thought it was going to be.

PVP only happens when you opt into the gametype

So I will be wandering around a open world alone? Hmm sounds a bit dull, would have liked to bump into others players and make them squeal!

No you will see lots of other players in the open world but you wont be able to harm them in any way. You can join up as a squad etc to do raids and so on but no sneaky killing other players on site no

Yeah I agree the game looks awesome and I cannot wait but if there was open world PvP maybe kind of like Diablo 2 where'd you'd have to go hostile before you can attack someone that'd be hectic!!!

That was only the alpha

Sony does also get 10 days for the beta while apparently the Xbox only gets 4.

Technically 8... It'll be down for maintenance for 2 days. 22nd and 23rd?  Somewhere around there. Maybe 21st and 22nd

Yea I was thinking the same thing.

However since hearing it's pretty much just going to be a few more story missions depending on how many levels you can do I may not even play its duration and just come back on the last day for the emblem. Loved the game but there are only so many times I can go through the same strike getting a bunch of gear that I can't use while not being able to level up before I get bored.

Just got back from a vacation an hour ago. Haven't been able to update this thread with all the new info. Lots of new stuff!

First off, beta teaser video. Everything in this video will be accessible in the beta - http://youtu.be/TljtC5qnb-s

Looks pretty awesome  ;)


Beta PvP gameplay - http://youtu.be/BGkSExg7Sps

Really looking forward to more PvP maps. This one looks pretty fun


Destiny Ghost Edition almost sold out, or already sold out. MoreConsole cracks me up sometimes.. - http://youtu.be/BGkSExg7Sps

I'm definitely upgrading to this if I'm still able to.

Beta Schedule - http://youtu.be/I_ti_g4fJx8

Lol, the very end of this video is exactly how I feel

Don't forget! To play the beta you MUST get a market place code!

Go to Bungie.net, and log into your account. Under redeemed codes you can select your platform, and region. Then on the 17th you should be emailed your final code  :)


Also, check out this footage of the 2 additional maps we will get to play in the beta. Mars is definitely going to be one of my favorites! Venus looks sweet too.

I think I know what you mean. I couldn't imagine more than 12 people playing on Rusted Lands. That is one of the smallest maps I think. The Moon felt real nice. I think Venus and Mars will be comfortable too.

Just a few more days till we find out! :D Was hoping for a XIM 4 :c

The biggest thing I noticed about aiming during Alpha was that there was no need to ADS.

I was using the Halo ST, it was more than sufficient.

Alright, sweet. I never played any Halos with XIM. I didn't have any way to compare how consistent the aiming was. As long as Halo 4 is nearly perfect, that's good enough for me.  ;)

Although if Halo 4 is essentially the exact same ST, maybe profiles could be easily added for all the consoles for Destiny, without spending a large amount of time developing them.

Of course!  :)


and yes you can already do the two button binding, eg bind R1 + L1 to one key, i was already using that in the alpha
on the XIM4 and XIM4 Edge this is called "secondary binding", you just bind R1 to eg E and on secondary you bind L1 to E

I'm not sure I completely understand. If I want to make "Q" my super, how do I bind this without changing my existing L1/R1 keys?

If you are on PS4 you don't need a code.

Just go into the Uk psn store and pre-order the game, you will see the beta becomes available for download immediately.

After you get the beta download, just go into your account and cancel the pre-order.

p.s. You can pre-order with 0 balance in your wallet.
Don't try this with a US account, you will not be able to cancel the pre-order with a USA account

if that's the case they probably slowed it down because often you could see stuff being rendered at the edges of the screen. Where just on the sides it would flicker from white to what it's supposed to look like. Haven't had that problem in the beta.

Spent the last 6 hours playing with Ninja, Puckett and N3ac3y. We were all wrecking, and won every game  ;)


God this game is so much fun. The PvP is like crack!



2 best weapons I suggest leveling up and using are

Jigoku SR3 - Perfect for moon, and long range
Shingen-C - Very low recoil, and when zoomed in, bullets fire slower (conserving them), but do more damage.


Can't wait for another go at it tomorrow   ;)

Just watched some Destiny beta play on YouTube - cosmodome  mission 1 -  can someone tell me what I'm missing here? It could've been any generic shoot em up as far as I'm concerned...... Been spoon fed information with that floaty thing and the AI was terrible! The enemy just stand there letting you shoot them.

Ok it was only beta and not full on multiplayer but if that's what the missions are going to be like then I won't bother with Destiny. First impressions: 4 out of 10.

Yeah, you're not really missing out on much. Besides graphics it's nothing special and full of bad design. The PVP is alright in small bursts but you have to farm the story/exploration for decent weapons before going in there which makes me think that the rumored level 20 cap for retail is actually a good thing.

The one thing I'm already tired of is constantly going back to orbit and selecting a destination and all the loading times in between. Out of all of the major problems this game has this is one of the most obvious ones that should have been taken care of when they started. You'll definitely need to get an SSD if you value your time or don't have the patience.

I've been using the XIM Edge on PS3 with the Destiny beta; the story missions were enjoyable, although the PvP felt somewhat lackluster compared to other modern FPS games. The amount of auto-aim the game tries to force on you is also decidedly unpleasant.

Additionally, there's the issue of slowed diagonal movement when using a XIM Edge. You can see it quite easily when in port and your character is in 3rd person mode - moving left and forward or right and forward with the keyboard will make your character "jog" instead of run (by contrast, moving diagonally on the gamepad causes you to run diagonally.)

I'm sure it'll be remedied when there's an official profile, but if anyone has found an existing profile that eliminates the issue, please feel free to share.

Is he the one who identifies items for you? When you buy something off him it's like a lucky dip

Sorry, missed this. He identifies your engrams. When you spawn in the tower, your turn right, and he is 25 steps away. He has a low voice and is always muttering stuff.

How the hell are you guys counteracting the slow turn speed? I'm sprinting and turning is slower than a snail race.

Any suggestions?

The only way I counter it bumping hip sens up way high. Much higher than I'm comfortable with.

There was a method where you can make hip much more sensitive only while holding lshift, but it didn't work for me. It would be sweet if a fix could be built into the upcoming Destiny xim profile.
Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: roads on 03:19 AM - 07/23/14
Just do a subconfig that has higher sens and that activates with the Mbutton/Keboardkey you mapped to sprint while holding.

What roads described worked very well, but pay attention that while springting + airtime eg jumping you are back to 100% turnspeed, this can make your aim jump like crazy when holding the sprint button bound to a higher sensitivity
Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: FrizzleFry on 11:50 AM - 07/23/14
you could always make another subconfig triggered by the jump button...but you would have to hold it while you were in the air.

For those in the beta on last generation systems:

I tested the XIM Edge on both the PS3 and the XBox 360 versions of the Destiny beta. Despite attempting to utilize both PS3 and XBox 360 XIM profiles from 8 different game titles, the diagonal movement slowing issue always persists on the PS3. However, the XBox 360 does not suffer from the same problem. Thus, if you have both systems and plan on using a XIM Edge, I would highly recommend using your codes on the XBox 360 version of the beta.

As other posters have mentioned, the HALO 4 profile works reasonably well, turn speed and aim assist issues aside.

thoughts after a few hours play (not too positive, liked alpha more)

this game would be halo if the ar rushing bads and shotgun camping bads designed it lol

pure garbage compared to halo

7.5 as a  co-op shooter rpg

like a 5 for pvp, the easy stuff is just too easy to and too effective imho

class supers are silly.... guaranteed kills for warlocks/vangaurds and usually a kill for a hunter just to the point where its kinda dumb

shore level is ok but last few games were just ARs shotguns and melee spam, reminded me of low level halo matches

but those players aren't effective in rank based halo due to the fact you can't sprint in 2/3 so you can just back pedal and off em with a br


speaking of brs the pulse rifles are pretty bad  now :/, huge shame the scout rifles are good still but I likes my BR nostalgia

snipers are a bit fun, not a fan of the lens flair battlefield style but oh well just makes counter sniping other snipers so easy


ads taking away the hud and the god dang running turn speed throw me off so bad still, like the ads is just halo scoping with an ads animation... and slowed down movement, not a big fan





quick thing i like that I need to adjust to is the fact once you are going hard you can still fall apart horribly  god I start off real well in the first half till I get bored and then fall apart and make terrible mistakes

also comebacks are pretty possible so far

It's necessary they did that considering the distance that the map pings enemies. I usually ignore maps in MP shooters and feel they throw me off but in this game it's absolutely required to constantly watch your map and plan your approach to every combat situation.

I remember Halo 4's horrible radar and thinking that Bungie would have never done that but they almost did except it works a lot better here. Partly because it still doesn't ping half the map like in Halo 4 and partly because of the hud disappearing in ADS.

They changed/nerfed the vehicles for retail.

Interceptor:
1 per match that the teams fight for
RoF for rockets lowered
Explosion size lowered
The airburst function has been changed (doesn't say what exactly to or what they did)
Doesn't spawn until partway through match

Pikes:
1 spawns at beginning per team

Additional pikes spawn at various locations *this i'm not sure if it's 1 additional pike for each team or 1 pike to fight over*

-----------------------

Ground Pounder  What the hell are you going to do about that Interceptor?

It’s a beast. Ain’t it? The architects of the arena have some ideas. In the final game, it won’t be the menace that’s been chasing you into bases. Don’t take it from me. Listen to Bungie Designer Derek Carroll:

The Interceptor is a tank and should be treated with respect, but the Sandbox team made some tweaks to reduce the “apocalyptic firestorm” factor a bit. The largest change is a lower rate of fire, with an additional delay between shots. This encourages the pilot to take aimed shots instead of just spamming rockets. More subtle changes include reducing the rocket blast radius, and shrinking the “arming shape” that allows the rockets to airburst on flying targets.
   
Even with these changes, we felt that having two of them on First Light is less interesting than having a single Interceptor for both teams to fight over. At the start of each match, each team is given a single Pike, with another neutral Pike up for grabs.  Additional Pikes will respawn throughout the match near the Control Zones. The Interceptor will spawn on a delay. Ground Pounder  What the hell are you going to do about that Interceptor?

hey guys, just wanted some clearing up on the game since i never played a MMO before, after playing the beta for a few hours, I like it a lot but cant say Im in love with it yet.  the beginning missions almost all looked the same, except for the bosses of course.  I see the the potential thjough, reminds me of mass effect with halo n b-lands.  since there are really no other games out n having 200 hrs of BF4 already, kinda need something new until FC4, divison and such come out.  any help with these ?s would be appreciated.

1.  what is the difference between the modes explore, story and strike and how do u specifically select them?  are they tied into each other in anyway? I am mainly looking to play a campaign mode as the crucible mode doesnt really draw my attention, I like more present day MP shooters.   
2.  can u play this game offline alone or is it always coop?
3.  how do u upgrade your weapons, armor, powers, etc?  I was a warlock btw.... 
4.  can u ever really play this game alone?

I was able to do the first 5 missions and after that (being lvl 6), I had some special mission to do that was like impossible cuz I felt my weapons were too weak, almost all the enemy waves were lvl 8-9, especially the boss.  wht was that mission? 

Thanks again for any help....cant wait til tomorrow  ;D!

There will be two mode in the game when released. One in Player versus Environment or PvE (Campaign mode) and Player versus Player or PvP (Matching Player v Player). Strike(s) is the same thing as PvE with somewhat more challenging mission. You can go to any game mode to get Crucible gear and level up the gear you've obtained. Crucible gear is important because it determines if you Guardian can survive in PvE, PvP and Strikes. In the normal Crucible playlist every player's gear and weapons have even stats expect for that specific weapon's power ups i.e bottom half of magazine does more damage or on random bullet in magazine does bonus damage. In the Iron Banner Crucible playlist weapons and armor stat restrictions are removed. so if a person has a higher level and better gear and weapons than you he will destroy you easily.

2.  can u play this game offline alone or is it always coop?

No. Its always online.

3. how do u upgrade your weapons, armor, powers, etc?  I was a warlock btw....

Upgrading weapons, armor and powers is simple. you have use them. Get kills with the weapons, armor and powers while they are equipped to level them up. Another way to level them up is to complete bounties in PvE, PvP or Strikes.

4.  can u ever really play this game alone?

Yes but you will always see other players in game stealing your kills :P

Regarding question 3 that's not exactly the case... You level up your weapons and armor when you gain XP. that means you can upgrade any weapon/armor without using it. All you need to do is have it equipped when you deliver a quest (like those banners or crucible missions) and the item will level up. I've already did this a couple of times, only I'm not sure if it will stay like this in the final version. But I'm pretty sure it will because high level weapons and armor will need all the help to level up that they can get.

Wow, the beta was so much freaking fun. The PvP is addicting, and the PvE is better than most games I've played. The story seems very interesting, and the music is absolutely amazing.

I managed to hit #6 in the leaderboards at one point lol. Now I'm stuck at around 18.


Highly looking forward to launch on the 9th! Can't wait!


Hope everyone enjoyed the beta!!  :)

oh PLEASE just let the old hags die already. i still have a massive backlog on PS3, and i would like it really much if games stopped coming for it with no next gen version which, by now, should be granted. cross gen needs to stop asap too so devs can unleash their work and sweat fully focused on the best experiences.

that said i need a new pc. my laptop has fallen quite low.. and PS4 is... incomplete. not even just the library but i can deal with the rest of it.

man it sucks to be poor and having to support relatives. i need me a XIM4 to play stuff like destiny and actually figure out if i like it, instead of playing "well if i wasn't perma-disgusted with the controls and could actually shoot in a shooter, would i like it?"

im under the impression i won't like PvP unless a overhaul of sorts is incoming. it should be. but i'm also wary of grind. i feel this game is one of those where half my brain shuts off after a while playing it, i never liked warframe and rpgs because of grinding and leveling. much prefer stuff like CS, where your sole objective is to have fun and master what is available..

Lol, I forgot I made that rapid fire thread in the beta forum. That got out of control lol! Some people even got angry. Such a touchy subject apparently.

I see everyone's point of view. I understand why OBsIV won't include it into XIM. Was just wondering if it could be added.

Although I must say, The XIM technically allows us all to cheat. Though a rapid fire is taking cheating to another level.

My goal was to program an auto click for the scout rifles in Destiny. Unlike CoD, where you can fire rifles very quickly with a mouse (rapid fire is op), the scout rifles in Destiny have set intervals. It would not be as big of an advantage in Destiny to have rapid fire.

This is NOT intended to get everyone fired up again. Just wanted to give a response since I no longer have the change in the other thread.

I'll probably buy this game, but I am truly amazed that they somehow spent half a billion dollars developing it. It's really baffling. Where did all that money go?

The PvP is a total mess. An unholy hybrid of CoD, Halo, Unreal Tournament and (insert crappy free to play title here). It's beyond generic feeling.

I'm hoping it's just the beta, but everything looks kind of awful. I know the release version will run at 1080p, but are they going to add any AA? I'd rather have 720p with AA than all of these freaking jaggies. And it looks like there's a haze or film over everything and the colors are all washed out. Enemies have no detail and just look like moving jagged blobs at anything other than point blank range.

$500 million.......... Seriously? I feel like someone must be embezzling a massive amount of money, hahaha.

Title: Re: Who's excited for the Destiny BETA on XIM4?
Post by: ak-xs on 02:57 PM - 07/28/14
but they've spent a LOT of it already. little things add up a lot, more is spent sometimes before getting final assets than getting to it, example: xbone controller. so much money thrown at redesigning the 360 controller, which was already a beast, and to what? make a basic clone with subtle differences. which means they spent it on trial and error and studying it. Destiny involved a lot of trial i can assure you. plus the budget for the art should be perplexing even though the bland result.. - Peter Dinklage voice controversy anyone?

and making games that cross mix several iconic gameplays is always very costly and hard, i see why even the mighty bungie struggles. but their plans at least are sound, a lot of studios and investors are stuck in 90s-00s line of thought that a game project is static (bear with me). todays modern games and studios just know, what counts more is post-release rework. you just cannot make something of the scope of the most famous OMP at first try or in a couple years, you need to let it go into the world, see how it fares and then balance. they intend on doing just that, fine by me. the "alpha" and "beta" that destiny had need new names, because their are not what classic concepts with those names were, ignoring the major similarities.

One of the Exotic Scout rifles have a perk that turns it into an automatic.

Another one I liked was a Fusion rifle that removes the charging but fires 1 shot per triggerpull.

Woah, no charge on a fusion rifle? How does that work?? Was the damage the same on the scout rifle? I didn't come across either of these weapon variations.

They are both exotic weapons I found on the database they created on it.

The fusion rifle has no charge but is only 1 bullet per triggerpull so pretty much turns it into a semi auto weapon

I do completely agree with the 720/60fps. I would probably still choose to play in 1080 at a lower framerate, but holy flipping hell. I want to be playing in 4k already! Not 1080 at 30 miserable fps. And definitely not going back to 720 any time soon.

Bring on true next gen already!


Even at 30fps, I thought the beta was a ton of fun. I have liked almost everything about this game

i think the art style is too much on the bland side. also that it is what he means.. but to put it in perspective, the number of games i think are not like that are really too few and art style is the least of my concerns really. any word on paid DLC about destiny? i hate the pay to win, or Battlefield pay to enter extra modes debacles. (not saying Dice should work for free, but i would gladly replace the SP mode with a couple DLC MP modes)

720p is very muddy to me

720p is very muddy to me

i think there's plenty of color ever since the first reveal. color isn't the issue to me it's how forgetful the designs are. think about the destiny logo, it's defining. unique. it has a soul. enemy design? some are just as appealing. have identity. but the overall game... you could change some assets, put a different name on the cover and voila, "no one would tell" you it was from destiny (so to say).


let me put it in perspective, you think about BF, instantly lens flares, blue filters... Deus X = gold filter madness. Borderlands? sure cell shading spawns some amazing games and art, Jet Set/Grind Radio anyone? but BL still has it's twist on it. so on so forth. all the iconic FPS have their tone to them in the art and artstyles. Destiny's is just... less unique. exotic. more... "normal".. i think it's even intentional partially. i bet they wanted to recreate a landscape and models that are close enough to today's and today's sort of classic view of future to ground players, make them feel at home.. while at the same time making everything as dystopian and original as the Halo1 universe. MasterChief is just a suit of armor, not even that different from any other future armor.. BUT he's so iconic. so easy to remember. and that's 90% helmet. color. yet army green is standard. the gold visor however gives it the color flare it needed. and design is just as close to reality as it is far way into fantasy. it's marvelous to find such a balance. and Destiny kinda lacks that..


again, nitpicking is nitpicking. and i'll never be satisfied so i literally don't care. it doesn't really matter much. gameplay is king, queen and prince,so on so forth...

i love anime style, completely extravagant design, but i also easily dislike it when people go overboard with it. i love realist style but it also gets old real fast. so, the best thing is to find a soul that belongs to you a stick with it, because even if people don't love it they can respect it and grow fondness for it, acquire the taste. but to cater to everyone dilutes the flare that inflames those feelings.

just my way to see it.


vaaaale. paid dlc on destiny. any info? plz!

1.  what is the difference between the modes explore, story and strike and how do u specifically select them?  are they tied into each other in anyway? I am mainly looking to play a campaign mode as the crucible mode doesnt really draw my attention, I like more present day MP shooters.   
2.  can u play this game offline alone or is it always coop?
3.  how do u upgrade your weapons, armor, powers, etc?  I was a warlock btw.... 
4.  can u ever really play this game alone?

I was able to do the first 5 missions and after that (being lvl 6), I had some special mission to do that was like impossible cuz I felt my weapons were too weak, almost all the enemy waves were lvl 8-9, especially the boss.  wht was that mission? 

Thanks again for any help....cant wait til tomorrow  ;D!   

1.  what is the difference between the modes explore, story and strike and how do u specifically select them?  are they tied into each other in anyway? I am mainly looking to play a campaign mode as the crucible mode doesnt really draw my attention, I like more present day MP shooters.

There will be two mode in the game when released. One in Player versus Environment or PvE (Campaign mode) and Player versus Player or PvP (Matching Player v Player). Strike(s) is the same thing as PvE with somewhat more challenging mission. You can go to any game mode to get Crucible gear and level up the gear you've obtained. Crucible gear is important because it determines if you Guardian can survive in PvE, PvP and Strikes. In the normal Crucible playlist every player's gear and weapons have even stats expect for that specific weapon's power ups i.e bottom half of magazine does more damage or on random bullet in magazine does bonus damage. In the Iron Banner Crucible playlist weapons and armor stat restrictions are removed. so if a person has a higher level and better gear and weapons than you he will destroy you easily.

2.  can u play this game offline alone or is it always coop?

No. Its always online.

3. how do u upgrade your weapons, armor, powers, etc?  I was a warlock btw....

For a supposedly social game, they seem to err every time on the side of making sure nobody will ever have a bad experience with anyone else in the world.  No proxomity chat, no communication in social zones... I wish they would just let us talk and give people the option to mute single players or everyone if they didn't want to mingle.  Yes, sometimes people will say nasty words or be jerks, but these things happen.  You can't control the world, and it's not a very social game as it is.

it's a social game aimed at a lot of people who cannot deal with socialization. either for being the jerk or being bothered by them, it's people who are socially awkward. that's the stereotype of gamer these days.
i very much agree with you, CS' old days were people talking freely and semi-anonimous on pubs and those were the days.. even in private servers i rarely had to pull out my admin powers because of chat, people would just man up. granted, trolling those days wasn't like now. but we would also punish trolls hard..
oh the rage i had because people would start to yell on their mics for someone (me) to shut up instead of muting me in 2 seconds.. i would make them climb walls until they learned to mute others, then proceeded to quit acting like a buffoon and returning to being nice. didn't always work, but at least it was fun.


i just don't get people. Dark souls has basically non existent communication and control, people are the biggest jerks to each other on a common basis and yet... no one cries about it. everyone gets it, deals with it their way, moves on to have fun. Borderlands has the proximity chat and i don't see jerks talking there, they may act like idiots but rarely bother talking like one. and if they push their luck - kick, next - solved.

these days it seems educating others, or punishing them for their offenses is violent. it's like people putting trolls and jerks in their place are sacrificing jews. and then the consequence is israel massacring palestinians in a way hittle would be proud. it's an uber fail and stupid. all on the account of goo'old fashion greed..

Here is a video with some good information in it. One of the biggest misconceptions with Destiny is your level cap is 20. Technically you continue to level your guardian's "light" far beyond level 20.

I will continue to update this thread with the latest Destiny news. The beta has passed, but it is only the beginning of Destiny. I've been hoping for a couple weeks a mod could change my thread title for me. Could someone do that? I would PM over the updated title

Hey guys I've made a post already but in case its missed I'm going to post it on a couple of Destiny threads as I think it will be beneficial !

Hey there XIM community and fellow Destiny players!
I don't know how many of you are following the Destiny updates closely but just recently they interviewed one of the Devs who basically said that Raiding in Destiny is going to be HARDcore. Due to the difficulty and the huge rewards for completion there will be no matchmaking in game for Raids, only for Strikes. Therefore forming a competent Fire Team of 6 people will be totally dependent on your consoles "friends list" or people you meet in game... as you can imagine this will quickly become an annoyance as not all of your friends etc will be able to raid when YOU can.
To try and relieve some of this I've created an FB page open to all platforms to assist in forming raids/fire teams and clans, as well as discussing Raid strategies/gear/abilities etc.
More importantly I think it would be a HUGE advantage  for fellow XIM users to be able to form groups mainly consisting of mouse/kb users and really hit/take out the content ahead of the rest.

So all of you Guardians out there jump on FB and give us a "LIKE" at:
https://www.facebook.com/Destinyraiding

Personally I am on PS4 and have years of experience in not only FPS gaming but leading raids on MMO's such as WoW and Rift and to say I'm keen to dismantle raiding in Destiny would be the understatement of the year!

Thanks for showing us the page. I've already liked it.

I hope the endgame is Molten (hard)Core... :P This will allow for good PvE players to stand out. I've played also a lot of WoW and one thing I've learned is that just because someone's at the level cap doesn't mean that they're any good at the game... PvE's all about team play and usually good PvE teams also fair well on PvP.

I will continue to update this thread with the latest Destiny news. The beta has passed, but it is only the beginning of Destiny. I've been hoping for a couple weeks a mod could change my thread title for me. Could someone do that? I would PM over the updated title

thoughts after a few hours play (not too positive, liked alpha more)

this game would be halo if the ar rushing bads and shotgun camping bads designed it lol

pure garbage compared to halo

7.5 as a  co-op shooter rpg

like a 5 for pvp, the easy stuff is just too easy to and too effective imho

class supers are silly.... guaranteed kills for warlocks/vangaurds and usually a kill for a hunter just to the point where its kinda dumb

shore level is ok but last few games were just ARs shotguns and melee spam, reminded me of low level halo matches

but those players aren't effective in rank based halo due to the fact you can't sprint in 2/3 so you can just back pedal and off em with a br


speaking of brs the pulse rifles are pretty bad  now :/, huge shame the scout rifles are good still but I likes my BR nostalgia

snipers are a bit fun, not a fan of the lens flair battlefield style but oh well just makes counter sniping other snipers so easy


ads taking away the hud and the god dang running turn speed throw me off so bad still, like the ads is just halo scoping with an ads animation... and slowed down movement, not a big fan





quick thing i like that I need to adjust to is the fact once you are going hard you can still fall apart horribly  god I start off real well in the first half till I get bored and then fall apart and make terrible mistakes

also comebacks are pretty possible so far

Pretty much this, it's Halo reach(not to be confused with halo 1,2,3), but instead of Armor abilities you have supers..

the jump comes from me aiming ahead of the building to land the plasma grenade on the driving ghost

does this hint that you are an under aimer when going for predictive fire? (you jump to as close as end of building possible but slow down near the end to get more precise with it) or it's just a random thing with no relation to your aiming habits ?

Od1in or anyone else making a Xim destiny guild?

this sounds really good. better every second i think about it.. i would beg for a US/EU | XB/PS fronts so we can sort out play without lag for the usual ropes, while still being able to take a shot or 2 in more laid back situations with our mates across the blue rift. sounds a lot of fun..

maybe having level tiers events ongoing regularly if we are many so people are matched appropriately, but more likely we'll be few and we'll just get cozy with each other pending on compatible schedules.

Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: ak-xs on 07:08 AM - 08/02/14
my plan would be to get a class for PvP and another for PvE. armor, guns and attributes are not necessarily compatible between vP and vE. - anyone who has played DarkSouls in a minimal manner knows just how bad things can differ. even Borderlands was always like so - so i haven't tried the beta, not really, but i expect for PvE to pick either hunter or warlock since to face PC you are always better off having a high DPS char and honing skills to stay alive, than having a massive tank that doesn't die but shoots peas..

i haven't seen enough about hunter, but i also seem to be joining the club to use it for PvP. like predicted, "no one" likes titan class AHAHAH

Hunter all the way.   Tried all 3 classes, and this fit me best.
Prefer the jumping style, and Golden Gun focus power.
Warlock n Titan have AoE powers, but Hunter has a "precision" power, which is going to be great with kbam control.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: mist4fun on 02:04 AM - 08/03/14
I'm leaning toward the Hunter too. I came to the same conclusion and for the same reasons. I want to like the other classes but I played Vanguard in all three Mass Effect games so I'm a little too familiar with the Titans ability. The only thing that interests me about warlock is blink but can it compete with a three shot golden gun and triple jump? I'm not so sure.

Double jump wad the first thing that pulled me into destiny.
Blink almost was enough for me to trade double jump in for then I learnt about triple jump and the hunter getting blink.
I honestly don't think I could be persuaded to go anything other than Hunter lol just looks the best fit for me. Speed and precision.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Od1n on 06:07 AM - 08/03/14
when comparing classes dont forget what future skill tree unlocks bring to the classes
eg the warlock gets a teleport functionality which can be pretty OP depending on how it works out
the hunter gets an AoE effect ability instead of the golden gun eg

for the alpha and beta the hunter was the best PvP class though, but the worst PvE one

Post by: Tonester on 07:35 AM - 08/03/14
Class # Rankings:
1 - Best
2 - Medium
3 - Worst

Hunter:
Mobility: 1
Regen: 3
Armor: 2
Best single target DD
Rewards crit shots... especially streaks of them
Can be unforgiving
Fave Weapons: Sniper Rilfe, Hand Canon, ? Scout Rifle ?
(Probably the best class for good XIM players)

Titan:
Mobility: 3
Regen: 2
Armor: 1
Best melee-range AE
Great at chokepoints
Has some good engagement/combat initiators
Fave Weapons: Rocket Launcher, Machine Gun, ? Shotgun ?

Warlock:
Mobility: 2
Regen: 1
Armor: 3
Most versatile (can adapt well to particular maps, bosses, etc)
Good all around damage (single, AE, melee, ranged)
Best "cover" character due to fast regen
Fave Weapons: ? Fusion Rifle ?

This is based on my readings, playing, etc.

As an old-school FPS guy with an XIM, I'll be playing Hunter.  If you can get headshots reliably, this character is crazy good.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: RML on 09:13 AM - 08/03/14
^ Seems like a pretty good breakdown, I have a couple Gamer tags, one clan one not. My Clan character will be a Warlock becuase that's the role I volunteered for. It's also the Strongest class for PvE (IMO) which is primarily what we'll be doing.

My other tag which I play mostly with Ximmers and solo will be a Hunter because it will be geared more towards PvP.

My tags are, Clan - "BG JIMMY BONES" BG - "Brutal Gamers". If anyone in the US is looking for a clan or some support with Destiny raids and such hit me up, we're an Xbox One clan only, currently have 10 members and growing, so we're on all hrs. day and night!

Other tag, "RockyMtn Legend". Also for support, non-clan related, mostly PvP.

Well, I'm pretty sure there is little chance beta progress will transfer over to the release. Bungie said this in their latest weekly update


"Next month, we’ll all start playing Destiny for real. You might even think you’re ready.

You’re not. (wink)"



To me, that screams everyone is starting with a blank slate.

Drat.. I was really hoping to keep my progress  ::)
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: mist4fun on 01:39 PM - 08/03/14
Didn't they say from the start that progress wouldn't transfer? The experience progression was increased in beta. I think they would want to have a fresh start and to progress linearly as intended.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: ak-xs on 01:42 PM - 08/03/14
i think the FPS-fan in people is really showing here with how no one is mentioning factoring teamplay into their class choice.

guys, hate to break it to ya but say you form a clan with fellow XIMers or so and you all pick hunter because it's what suits you individually best..
now say, an enemy PvP team decides to study a map, study moves and tactics and decides to bait you to play along while they hook you and then give the mercy blow. sure it sounds like something more at home in theory than practice. but ask any MMO vet, or RPG fan - depends on the RPG type tho - and they'll tell you that coordination and teamplay go a long way.

honestly i think in controversy with the above, destiny is not very teamplay relyant. numbers are too small and roles are to "bland", not original or necessary enough. but, in competitive play, or if raids get serious, it'll be important enough to make a difference for those who want to have all advantages possible. and knowing the level of play of some people here, you might want to give it some thought BEFORE this all gets mainstream and plastered in every faq,guide and walkthroughs out there. my 2 cents only.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: ak-xs on 01:46 PM - 08/03/14
Borderlands favored teamplay and how much classes complement each other. particularly for PvE (EDIT: remembered BL only had duels so no teamplay for PvP). which reaffirms the concept of dedicating avatar slots to different ends from the get go.. but that's ofc if you are going serious enough for it to matter...

No they said they weren't sure, that's pretty much why everyone kept asking if they are going to transfer or not.

AK beat me to it. Bungie wanted to see how the beta went, and go from there. Surprisingly, about 60% of people want to start fresh. I'm sure they are factoring that in too.

I wish they would give you the option. Though I guess I don't mind starting everything over for a 3rd time lol


And you are right AK. Having a clan of all Hunters might not work so well if you are up against a clan with Titans & Warlocks. Most of the time it probably wouldn't matter, it's just when you are up against a really good clan that understands the mechanics of the game.

Explore mode just lets you explore while having random sidequests you can take scattered on the map if you want.

Played the Beta (PS4) and loved it.  Not used to open world types and i got a little confused at times but doing the story in co-op was really fun and then seeing what MP could be like gave us food for though (i got wrecked using a controller and alot of stuff seemed OP).

Customization looks huge in this.

For some reason I remember seeing $14.99 for each dl. It could be as much as 19.99 though.

Here is something I have been wondering since the Alpha. This short video explains the different type of weapon damages, solar, arc, void and kinetic, and how they affect different enemies. Very useful to know

It has been confirmed in the weekly update that beta progress will not transfer.

Deej - Step away from this update and take a walk. Have a good cry, or howl at the Moon. We’ll be here when you’re done…

Welcome back.


Deej - Right now, you’re lamenting the loss of your starter gear, those pearls of mayhem of destruction that you carved from the wastes of Old Russia. Look beyond that horizon. We have exotic arms and armaments secreted away – adventures you can barely imagine right now.


I was hoping we would get to keep a few things, but I suppose this is for the best; everyone starts fresh. And come September 9th, everything will be for real
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Aiken_Drum on 11:21 PM - 08/08/14

yeah this is the right thing to do, Bungie are smart! this is probably why they wanted to give beta people unique, one time only edition, icons, banners and whatnot. they wanted the beta people to have something to deposit the braggin' rights and thus eliminating the bigger issue of forcing a fresh start.
and just like people said, being in the beta itself was the best advantage.

It just depends on your background. You obviously have a PC background, where as I don't even own a PC (mac) and have been console gaming for EVER. As a lifetime controller user I'm very familiar with using left trigger to ADS and stick anolog movement. I will admit the Nav is a bit small, but I got used to it faster then I did using a mouse for aiming. It was familiar atleast.

I've tried using a keyboard for movement and it is the most unnatural mind boggling thing ive done gaming wise. I'm not saying its worse by any means, I can see its possible advantages like straffing and tons of buttons. However, there are three primary reasons I haven't forced myself to use it.

- I like playing in my recliner! Yes, I have a recliner infront of my desk. I could use a nostromo or something like that someday, but a KB won't work on the arm of my chair.
- As normal as using Right click to ADS may be to you its extremely awkward to me. Im so used to that @#$% trigger!
- Lastely, I'm happy with my gaming performance. I initially came to XIM because I sucked at FPS's and was a consistant 1.0 player. I've never been the type of player that could stick to just one game for months on end. If I was I would've probably done better. Now, with XIM I can play a different game daily if I so choose and still perform well.

I don't believe one form of movement is better then the other. There's arguments supporting both. IMO whatever you're used to is what matters most. Its just one more thing I love about XIM, the freedom to use your own gaming style.

I hope that answers your question.  :)

I do use a nostromo and have a small desk on wheels i can move infront of my TV
However im currently looking for a smaller "gaming monitor" for my PS4 and have no idea what to go for.... i dont wanna spend $300-$400 and have a monitor that is only going to really be worth it for a highend pc as opposed to a console... So many technical details i have no idea except that i know i need lowest response time possible...

I use nav & mouse, it's far from uncomfortable. In fact, it's all I've ever used. I tried a few keyboards (some nice, high end ones) and returned them all.

It's second nature, my left hand can go anywhere during Gameplay.

Post by: Aiken_Drum on 05:17 PM - 08/13/14
I agree that it feels pretty weird, but analog movement (vs. digital on keyboard) is quite nice in some situations.  It's not a bad tradeoff.  But yeah, it's weird.  I'm trying to get used to it myself.

honestly, when i got it with xim3 for bc2, it was very weird at first to the point I almost gave up on it.  but after being convinced here and a few days of practice, it got better until eventually, being a lifelong console player who appreciates the power of mice aiming, i consider the ultimate hybrid of controller/pc gaming.  its da kat denning tits!!!! 8)

I've never been the type of player that could stick to just one game for months on end. If I was I would've probably done better. Now, with XIM I can play a different game daily if I so choose and still perform well.

This is sort of my problem as well. I just play too many games (I'm still going through my backlog on X360, PS3, Wii, Wii U ...) and now with the PS4 (and PC, always) I just can't play a single game long enough to really learn it well (maps, weapons, etc).

The XIM4 seems to really allow me to keep playing all sorts of games and still be competitive in FPS shooters. Now I usually have the edge when aim determines the outcome, but still lose to players who know where to wait for me, have the proper weapon/class setup for a particular map - the sort of things you pickup when you play a particular game often.

I'm sorry to hear some of you are canceling your preorders. I thought the beta was a ton of fun. The gameplay is very exciting imo. You have more time to react and counter someone unlike in CoD. Though the Hunter class is the only class I could ever play. Maybe I'll use a Warlock for PvE.

The only good deal out there right now is the digital version that includes the DLC down the road + all the digital items from the ghost edition. 

for $100 I wasn't going to complain.  I love to collect physical copies but in this case the digital deal saved me nearly $30 so @#$% it I said.  That and the pre-load so I can play right at midnight.

I tried to get the Ghost Edition, but it sold out in less than 48 hours. The Limited Edition sold out a few days later, so as of now you can no longer buy them (unless you use eBay of course). I plan to get the digital edition now since I recently upgraded to an SSD.

The Ghost Edition comes with a functioning Ghost that senses motion.

Also included:

Limited Edition SteelBook Case and Game Disc
Guardian Folio
Postcards from the Golden Age
Antique Star Chart
Collector's Edition Digital Content including:
A Unique Ghost Casing
An Exclusive Player Emblem
An Exclusive Player Ship Variant
INCLUDES THE DESTINY EXPANSION PASS*


The Limited has everything in the Ghost Edition, except the Ghost. The download edition is essentially everything nonphysical.

does it make a difference if you load the map in 5 seconds and the rest of your team loads it in 20? and then you have to wait another 15 for the round to start anyways?

only time this would help is for going back to the tower but i don't go there often lol.

Load times don't really stress me all that much though to each their own :P

It wasn't the load times that bothered me but the amount of loading (does that make sense?).

Like going from your location to the Tower involved loading the loading screen that loads the Tower.
They pretty much had loading screens for your loading screen.

As for the SSD portion, yes it would increase the speed but like others have said you would just be waiting around for the others to load as well.  It would also be up to you though if you found the price to be worth purchasing when you won't even get the full benefit tossing it into a PS4.

From my understanding the speed is quite noticable between a regular HDD and a SSD in the PS4 but the difference between a Hybrid drive and an SSD drive is minimal in the PS4. You would pretty much be better off buying a Hybrid drive for much, much cheaper with a larger capacity than you would be paying a higher price for a smaller SSD drive.

Sif is correct. Your load times don't really matter if you are in a fire team loading into a PvP, since you you can't get into a game before your friends (like in CoD). But if you are loading into the tower (solo, or in a group), or connecting to a PvP match already in progress, an SSD should speed everything up, especially if it is digitally downloaded. I installed a Samsung 850 pro a couple days ago, and it has significantly sped up a lot of things. Boot up time on PS4 is 16 seconds vs 23.

I plan to get the digital edition of Destiny, so mix that with an SSD, and Destiny should be an even better experience.

But it doesn't matter if the system isn't able to take advantage of faster HD speeds.

It is able to make a difference, but no it's not worth throwing an SSD in there as it won't take full advantage of it.

The fact all games are installed will fill your drive up very quickly (depending on how many games you put in of course) and SSD drives are still pretty expensive *almost car payments* for the larger ones.

If I get an SSD it's going to be at least 500GB but I prefer larger, but I'm not buying a drive thats worth more than the PS4 itself to put in the PS4 and it won't even take full advantage of it.

Boot up time on PS4 is 16 seconds vs 23.

So, let's say you turn on your PS4 twice a day every day. That's 14 seconds a day you're saving, or about 7 minutes a month. Around 84 minutes a year. That's about 10 hours over a 7 year console generation. It really only makes sense to put in a 500GB or greater SSD, so that's going to set you back around $250 for a reasonably priced model. Let's say you make $15 dollars an hour at work. You would have to work nearly 17 hours to cover the cost of the SSD. That's just poor time management. You're much better off overall to keep the HDD and use the slightly longer load times to do some pushups or lunges or something.

Back to Destiny, I'll be getting this for X1 I guess. US, central time. GT: Jaximus Decimus

Not huge on Destiny's PvP, but I'm down for whatever. Even anal.

Post by: Vatx on 01:44 PM - 08/19/14
Facade, I read something recently that suggested the bluray drive could be a bottleneck, though I can't find it now. A test was done on some games (both disk and digital), saved to an SSD. When saved to the SSD, everything was quicker. I would honestly prefer to own a physical copy.  If it is true that Destiny, or any PS4 game, runs the exact same on both digital and disk (with an SSD), I'm going back to a physical copy.


Phantom, I completely understand why most people don't see the upgrade worth it. To me though, a 5-35% boost across the board is significant. Boot up time is one of the more affected areas, but nothing is made worse. When it comes to technology in general, I always prefer quicker over slower. I will only have a handful of games installed on my PS4. Space is not an issue for me. I also can afford to buy the upgrade. So similarly to upgrading my phone each year for the faster processors and better components, installing an SSD is important to me.

You are on to something with your seconds and minutes saved. It has been found that people who regularly use technology in general, waste many hours, sometimes days of their life each year while waiting for technology. You calculated the boot times alone, but factor everything together, and those numbers increase. Factor in all other technology in your life, and the rise much more. I love fast technology  :)

As for Destiny, I have had the LE preordered since it was announced.  Had the regular version preordered since October, but have since canceled that one obviously. 

Ended up netting 6 beta codes for preorders and got an additional 2 sent to me by Sony because I was in the Alpha.  I felt like Oprah when I was giving them away lol.

I took off work too lol. The beta was the most fun I've had since Bo2 came out. I play only CoD too, but once Destiny drops, I'll probably do 90% Destiny, 10% AW.

CoD to Destiny was the biggest shift I've ever made. Hip aiming feels completely different, and takes some getting used to. I had never played a Halo, or anything from Bungie. The first couple days in the Alpha was a consistent .5-1.2kd. Veeery frustrating for me, since I'm used to played pretty well on CoD. After the aiming mechanics set in though, it was 1.5-5kd most games.

Glad you were talked into getting it. Destiny is a ton of fun  ;)

It'll be at least a week after launch.  4 consoles to consider, folks.  He has to get physical copies for each system, set the trainer, let it do it's thing, do his wizardry, etc etc etc.  And the trainer needs almost a day each for both hip and ads for each specific system....you do the math.

Not to be too much of a negative nancy, since I don't actually dislike Destiny, but I couldn't help but notice that only two of the six glowing review quotes in that trailer were from a gaming organization.

Edit: Actually, maybe that's a positive thing.  I like it when the world at large considers gaming simply to be part of their environment now.

Its actually a good silly way for someone to make a fool of themselves and raise awareness be it for ALS or any chosen charity.  I for one am not on twitter or facebook but my brother still nominated me so i accepted and stitched up a few friends whilst donating and educating myself on something i knew little about.  Water may be precious but so is life and if people can have their lives improved by something like this then why not.

It's not really raising awareness for anything.  Most people don't even remember what disease it's supposed to be raising awareness for.  I've gotten so many people that think it's for autism.  They all know the name "Ice bucket challenge" though, because it's something silly that they see on YouTube, Facebook, and TV.

Just donate the money.  The challenge stuff is pointless and used to raise awareness more so for the person doing it than the disease research it's supposed to be benefitting.

You cant change ignorant people but for me personally when i was told it was for ALS/MND first thing i did was google it. 

Its just like paying it forward.  Some people will learn and be charitable and some wont but for those that did learn and donate would have been enough publicity to make it a valid approach.

of course you can donate without doing anything as silly as dumping water on your head and getting a hose in your face but that was the fun we took from it while also gaining some knowledge inbetween.

I am sure a lot more precious resources have been wasted for nothing before.  Do you drive a petrol/diesel car places you could walk to?

It's not as bad as all that.  A lot of the big names not only do the icewater dump, but they also donate money.  Given that they do it and then challenge another big name to do it, too, possibly in a one-upping contest, this does actually produce more than just YouTube videos.

I've heard the cut that goes to the actual research isn't so great, but some is better than none.  Nobody actually has to contribute anything, so I figure the researchers will take what they can get.  It's a net win, even if the method's inefficient and kind of annoying.

Earth's surface is 71% water. If you have a solar panel and an ocean nearby, you can generate clean water. If you live in a desert, with a solar panel you can pull moisture out of the air. There is plenty of water, we are not going to run out. So, if dumping a bucket of ice water on your head and posting the video to the internet spreads awareness of a horrible disease, why not. It's for a good cause. And even if a percentage of participants do it only for the “feelgoodhitofthesummer,” maybe they are having fun, and spreading awareness at the same time, even if they themselves aren't aware. I don't see the problem. I think you should go look up some material on just how awful ALS is, and be thankful you don't have it. It is a disease that no one should be cursed with. The ice bucket challenge is silly, but brilliant at the same time.

The entire point of a campaign like this is to raise awareness. I can guarantee you 100% more people know what ALS is today verses a couple weeks ago. Also, why would someone donate money if they have no idea what it's going towards?

The ice bucket challenge has been a huge success. They have raised millions of dollars in a very short period of time. I congratulate them on their success, and give props to the person who triggered it.

Ice bucket challenge is brilliant.

Exploit people's narcissistic tendencies on social media, competitive nature, and first world need to do something to make themselves feel less bad about how good they have it.

I, personally, find the whole thing irritating. But how could I possibly object to money being raised for a really good cause? I think it lies in the way it's being done. While millions are in actual pain from poverty, war, disease, here we have stupid fat first world people who are basically bragging “My life is so without trauma that I find creating moments of trauma exhilarating, and hilarious.”

We actually are in a historic drought. To say "oh if you have solar panels and the ocean" sounds ridiculously out of touch of reality. It is more than just procuring water to drink, it's for crops, food, etc. And for the millions who are affected, if it were as easy as sucking moisture out of the air, we really wouldn't have any villages perishing from crop failures. Even Matt Damon used toilet water instead of clean tap water, which he thought was just crazy to use.

I guess what I'm saying is...if we are so excited to be helping people and connecting with them, I think we need to be more aware of what people are actually out there, whose experience are nothing like ours. Whatever happened to quietly giving just because you care, without the need of screaming and yelling and posting up videos?

Even Matt Damon used toilet water instead of clean tap water, which he thought was just crazy to use.
They both come out of the same pipe to your house.  :)

Also, the water isn't exactly lost, and not much of it in any case.  Most of the people I see are either doing it over grass or in a shower stall.  Grass uses the water, and water that gets flushed down a drain is treated and sent on its way, or, in some cases, sent back for a second tour of ... doody ...

sorry  ::)

They certainly do, but one is already in the toilet ;)

He did it to raise awareness for lack of clean water as well, I believe.

“This is truly toilet water. I’ve been collecting it from various toilets around the house. For those of you like my wife who think this is really disgusting, keep in mind that the water in our toilets in the West is actually cleaner than the water that most people in the developing world have access to.”

I never said the water was lost, but it certainly is still a waste if you're dumping it over a tub. Obviously, this is more about the principle of the matter, not the actual amount used, which is usually just a bucket or smaller.

You are right.  It raised awareness.  For many brands, athletes, celebs, and wannabe celebs on the interwebs.  Congrats.

The Destiny Ghost does the ALS ice bucket challenge lol. Meant to post this yesterday


http://www.youtube.com/v/Oy0Uv7VDGyE&hd=1


It's great all this awareness of ALS is spreading. There are so many horrible illnesses and disabilities out there. Really look forward to future therapies

I'm so incredibly tired of seeing this challenge spammed on my FB page but I have to admit that this was cool.

Yeah, the ALS videos are getting to the end of their sustainable life. I'm glad they had their couple weeks, but just like the Harlem Shake, and all the others, it will soon fade. Glad you liked this one  :P

Ice bucket challenge is brilliant.

Exploit people's narcissistic tendencies on social media, competitive nature, and first world need to do something to make themselves feel less bad about how good they have it.

I, personally, find the whole thing irritating. But how could I possibly object to money being raised for a really good cause? I think it lies in the way it's being done. While millions are in actual pain from poverty, war, disease, here we have stupid fat first world people who are basically bragging “My life is so without trauma that I find creating moments of trauma exhilarating, and hilarious.”

We actually are in a historic drought. To say "oh if you have solar panels and the ocean" sounds ridiculously out of touch of reality. It is more than just procuring water to drink, it's for crops, food, etc. And for the millions who are affected, if it were as easy as sucking moisture out of the air, we really wouldn't have any villages perishing from crop failures. Even Matt Damon used toilet water instead of clean tap water, which he thought was just crazy to use.

I guess what I'm saying is...if we are so excited to be helping people and connecting with them, I think we need to be more aware of what people are actually out there, whose experience are nothing like ours. Whatever happened to quietly giving just because you care, without the need of screaming and yelling and posting up videos?

(On the other hand, quietly giving would probably not raise as much money as quickly as this ice bucket thing. But still, it rubs me the wrong way.)


I feel so much hate towards 1st world countries in your post xP I hardly think the whole ice bucket challenge is about people showing off their beauty, and bragging about their amazing lives in their great countries. Firstly, most of the ice bucket videos you have probably seen are the celebrity ones, famous YT people, or any other well known person. There are maaany other ALS videos that don't show up in your YT feed of just ordinary people being a part of the campaign. I really don't see anything wrong with raising awareness/money and connecting with other people in a fun manner.

Yes, there are many horrible issues around the world right now. Thankfully there are more organizations than ever before in every category that are trying to help. Thankfully many countries better off than others donate massive sums of tax payer money to help people overseas. Thankfully technology is reaching a point where more people can be helped than ever before. Right now, ALS has the spotlight. I say let them have a much time as they can get. The challenge has already lost most of its thunder anyways.

Yes, depending on your pov, my statement could sound very out of touch. The thing is, I am very aware of the droughts going on right now. It really sucks. It is awful to see miles of dead trees in the West. It is horrible there isn't enough water for crops. I live in Texas, and we are coming out of our worst drought in many decades. It was scary for a time there, some of our lakes were almost empty at one point. So many acres of dead trees. Strict rules went into place on washing your car, watering your lawn, etc. Thousands of acres of crops died. They even shut off public school drinking fountains. jk about the fountains  ::) The drought had a silver lining though. It made people more aware of water conservation. I'm sure it is doing the same in the West. The rain will come again, but we need to start preparing for global warming. It is really happening, and areas experiencing droughts right now will experience many more in the coming decades. We need to come up with technologies that can counter whatever the environment throws at us. We can now very easily and cheaply turn sea water into clean water. We just need to get more serious about it and adopt the technologies. Some times it takes moments of crisis to make those decisions. We are even working on controlling the environment. Hopefully in the farther future we can avoid droughts, hurricanes, etc. all together.

And yes, you are right :p If people only gave quietly, only a tiny fraction would ever be received. Sometimes humans need to see another person set a good example. That is why I love all these viral video campaigns. It is easier than ever for people to see other people being good, and this spreads more goodness and connectedness.  :)

Back to destiny, is there any word on the location of the servers destiny will be using? Being in Hawaii, I have a horrible time connecting to Microsoft's Azure network on games like Titanfall. Just wondering if there's any news on where servers are outside of the physical north america.

I have not heard anything on the location of the servers. I imagine some must be on the west coast though. I searched google but didn't find an answer. I hope you have a strong connection when the game comes out! I would go crazy if I couldn't connect to my favorite game >< 1st world problems

That is confirmed. There are dedicated servers, and apparently a lot of servers too. Maybe there will be one on Hawaii even.

Bungie talked about their servers in January, but haven't said much since. This article addresses everything bungie disclosed

Destiny was testing all their servers in the alpha/beta. I experienced huge amounts of lag in the alpha. It was so bad I would get completely disconnected every hour or so, and have to restart the game. The beta was much better. I experienced little lag myself, but I did witness many random players lagging horribly. Hopefully Bungie got some good results from their tests, and will have a smooth launch.

I spent more time at host migration screens and the pre-game lobby than I ever did in a match for that game. It was infuriating.

Host migration screens themselves seemed to take 5 min or so and when it occurred you might as well leave because normally it takes so long that people have all started bailing because it's faster to just look for a new match.

I never experienced any lag for either the Alpha or Beta when it came to PVE.  For PVP, I didn't experience any lag until it came to getting a kill.  Once someone gets killed it lagged big time and allowed some truly spectacular kills from the grave to take place.

Reminded me of SOCOM Confrontation, how every time you killed someone the game paused for a second.  What a shite show that game was.

That was probably one of my biggest gripes with the alpha and beta. The @#$% opponent wouldn't die when they were supposed to. There is seemingly no lag until he or she is supposed to be dead. This drove me up a wall because I was sill focusing on people that should be dead when there were others attacking me.

It will be a great experience on both consoles. Keep in mind though, Bungie is specifically designing the game for PS4 first. Then will scale things down for Xbox.

I did hear the xbox side of the beta did not go as smoothly. I imagine Bungie will have those issues sorted out by launch.

I honestly can't tell the difference on most cross platform games, especially while playing. I'm sure if you compare screenshots....but that being said, didn't the June update allow a bit more GPU power on the xbox, and bungie had said they were confident they could get 1080 graphics, if not pretty close. But then again, there's so much more to graphics than just output res.

In any case, lag is my biggest worry....just gotta hope....

I have it preordered for the PS4. I did get the beta invites but never even downloaded it to try. But I will definitely go play it at launch! I want as many people to team up with or play against as I can hence the PS4 and of course more graphic power. My xbone hasn't turned on in 6 months.

The CPU isn't the problem so much. Sadly, Microsoft put a GPU about 30% less powerful in the Xbox. That is where game developers are running into issues. Though Bungie promises the experience is good on Xbox too! I just believe the textures will be dialed back some.

I didn't initially plan on taking any time off for gaming since I didn't really feel it was worth it but since our company lost the current contract to another company I have 46 hours of PTO to burn.

Sure I could have them buy it out but then I'll get railed on taxes. Only issue is that everyone else had the same idea so already used their PTO which only left me with 2 days to be able to request off lol.
Probably do nothing but play Destiny on those two days though considering my friends all took off from Tues through Friday.

Each retailer only makes a fixed number of copies available for preorder. There will be more limited/Ghost editions that make it to the stores, but many of them will be scooped up on release night by people trading-up their standard edition preorders. Your best bet would probably be to show up at Walmart or some place similar right at midnight on launch night. Assuming Walmart will even be getting Ghost editions.

I'm just going to preorder the Digital Guardian edition from the Xbox store. I don't need a bunch of physical junk cluttering up my already cluttered office.

Question for you guys who did beta since I never downloaded it and played, too busy with life. Anyhow, is there a "healer" class or do all 3 heal themselves? If its anything like most other MMO's the healers are always short handed which means your more sought after and get geared faster. Anyhow, thought id ask, id like to read up more on it now that my XIM is somewhere in the fedex shipping system:)

Those digital copies may end up shooting you in the foot.  They won't go live until midnight PST so depending on your location you may have to wait until 3am to play.

I'd rather wait a couple extra hours to play than worry about swapping discs out for Destiny's lifespan. I plan on taking a nap around 10, getting up at 1:45, brewing a cup of joe and firing that bad boy up at 2am. 2 hours shouldn't make a huge difference in a game you're supposed to spend hundreds of hours playing.

I work Monday night so I wont be able to play till I get home from work anyways and like Phantom said rather not deal with switching discs
Makes me more inclined to replay games if I dont have to switch discs laziness = maximium

I remember WOW had 4 discs back in the day when it first launched, still a few discs vs waiting hours, no problem!

Thanks for the class video btw. Im thinking either the main DPS guy or the stealthy guy and be the douche rogue everyone hated in WOW....this time, it may be me haha. I hated those guys.

Post by: Od1n on 05:07 PM - 08/29/14
imo its the following

Best PvP class: Hunter
Best PvE class: Warlock and Titan (best in combination)

Hunter is actually so highly overpowered with its second skilltree for the PvP part that i highly doubt ill ever step more frequently into PvP
of course thats just from the theory, but if the game plays the way the second skilltree description looks like itll be a big boring PvP experience

as much as the hunter is overpowered for PvE its almost entirely useless for the PvE part
it offers close to no support for other players, its just a consumer unit
and it isnt even a good PvE damage dealer on top of that
id rather take an additional warlock (@ second skilltree) or titan (@ second skilltree) with me into the vault of glass than a hunter

i really dont get the idea that bungie had behind this class ballance
they most likely would have realized that too if the second skilltree was available for the beta as the community would have greatly abused it in the PvE part

Well eventually, things will be re-balanced as they always are. And there will be complaints and praises as there always is.

Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Vatx on 05:41 PM - 08/29/14
The Blade Dancer class on Hunter will be much better for PvE. I think all the classes are decently balanced in PvP. Hunter grenades suck, and the melee is weaker. The Golden Gun is strong in certain instances, but having a get out of jail card with the Warlock and Titan, they are pretty powerful too. I'm real anxious to see how blade dancer plays in PvP
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Od1n on 06:06 PM - 08/29/14
why would the blade dancer be good for PvE?
the slice wave you can do seems to be effective for crowds of opponents that are in line, basically nothing you cannot solve with a grenade or a weapon too
its effecitve for the casual stuff but when facing the strongest of the strongest it seems to be rather ineffective and useless

you need to get quite close to the opponent to reach him with the wave, and for the stronger MOBs this wont be a one hit kill on them, after the activation of the slice you might have dropped him a few HP and you are fully healed too, but then you are up close to a creature that might give one hit kills on close range left and right
and im not going to be the one reviving a hunter just because he/she felt like using their super for a few % of damage dealing that you also could have done from a save distance with a gun and a few seconds of shooting to the weakspot

the other blade dance damage area effect around you is also range related, so you need to be quite close to the opponent to actually get a use out of it
once again the same issue if you cannot drop the opponent with it
therefore good in PvP were it most likely will indeed kill your opponent but useless in PvE imo were you face opponents with several thousand HP
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Od1n on 06:13 PM - 08/29/14
the warlock and titan might indeed have a "get out of jail" card with the nova bomb and the titan stomp/superman comet but its usually only for one single opponent and a very limited range while the golden gun for a good player is usually two kills at least and just as much of a "get out of jail" card as the supers of the other classes
and that doesnt even consider the longer golden gun duration that you can unlock later in the first skilltree
and its even usuable on longrange while the other two supers arent

sure for a casual player a warlock or titan will look more appealing as it doesnt need any real aim skill to bail out of a fight you might lose by using your super attack, but a real skilled player will destroy much more with a hunter class than with any other class in PvE


i mean why on earth would someone play the supporter warlock/titan in a PvE when playing with random teammates?
im sure we can all agree on that random teammates usually suck, so why even bother making them stronger when they cannot make any use out of it?
(thats different to PvE Raid/Vault of Glass were you play with friends or players you communicate and know)

If the moves are too OP, general release will result in a great deal of complaining and a resulting nerf.  Beta-era player behavior is always really different from release.  For one, the griefers tend to wait for release because it's way easier to get kicked out of a beta you didn't pay to be in.  I'm interested to see if the player dynamic is different, six months from now.

Blade Dancer will be powerful in PvE because you can damage multiple enemies just like the warlock and titan. I can't confirm this, but I also think Bladedancer can have multiple uses. It might not be instant drain.

Not always for a single opponent though. I saw every match people getting doubles to quad kills. With the Hunter, max you can get is 3 (unless you have the perk where 1 bullet can penetrate multiple opponents), if you can find 3 people. Often I could only get 1 kill or two. Also, when a Warlock and Titan use their super, their health doubles or triples. You can literally kill a Hunter as he is activating his super. Makes me so angry when that happens lol.

I have seen good players destroy opponents with every class. If you are really good with a titan or warlock, you have an advantage at melee, and maybe the super if you know when to use it.

Ultimately I think Bungie did a great job balancing the classes. All the classes are very strong if you know how to use them. If anything needs more tweaking I'm sure it will be taken care of after launch
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Od1n on 08:21 PM - 08/29/14
yeah i get your point, maybe i just focused too much on the hunter (that im not going to play anyhow)
also im just judging from the theory, lets see how it actually turns out in the real scenario

something im also concerned about is the warlocks self-revive super ability
you can revive yourself and you come back with full health and all abilities boosted, could be pretty op too

but then as i said, lets wait and see how it plays out
im sure some adjustments have been made, eg im sure bungie will increase the health of the hunter while activating the super ability, that is indeed a disadvantage right now
or lower the health while going into super for the other classes too

id actually welcome that, gives you the slight chance of countering a guy going super infront of you

Bungie will be on the lookout for op skills. They vow to tweak things that turn out too powerful relatively quickly

Based on the beta, it sounds like you can use the Halo 4 ST until mist4fun finishes the official ST training, and then you'll have one that's actually set up for Destiny.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Vatx on 12:45 PM - 08/31/14
I kinda wish the STs could be released as they were made. Who cares about favorites  ::) Just release next gen first, then 360 and PS3


Based off Bungie's latest weekly update, it sounds to me like the final boss in the Vault of Glass will be a massive dragon. All the weapons and armor you have seen with bones and spikes on them, dragon gear your get from completing some VoG.  ;) Venus is where the VoG is located, and there you see dragons flying around in the sky.

Since were a week away the team needs to be spammed a bit to get the name on the front again and get any and all people who are looking to clan up in before they get sniped by others!

I cannot stand Ghosts anymore.. Exactly what you said.. @#$% just sit in corners waiting for anything that moves. It really pisses me off beyond belief. I cannot stand @#$% campers.. They ruin the game! I don't even understand how it's fun to camp. I can't stand in the same spot for more than 10 seconds before it starts getting boring..  It doesn't matter though.. Ghosts is almost dead anyways.. Once Destiny drops, Ghosts will collect dust on a shelf. It's much harder to camp in Destiny too. If you camp in Destiny, you will be killed within 30 seconds. I LOVE IT!

I can't lie though, I camp on the moon map sometimes. If you sit on one of the rocket engines, you can see more than half the map. There is almost always someone to shoot at :p But after a minute or so, someone usually gets me with a sniper xP

I'll have to play around with it then, or... I might shell out for a sony gold headset IF I can get it working with my stream setup

@#$% it I'm buying the gold headset on my way to work this evening.  For $100 you can't go wrong.  I hear the sound is pretty good too.

Second edit: @#$% it I'm going to go buy it right now

I wish every informative video could be this pace. Keeps me listening


in 1:50 of collapse video, the grimoire card is laid out very clever. Neat clue for Bungie to leave

And based off 4:00, I'm thinking Bungie is somehow in collaboration with ISIS

I dont want to start a new thread but I was just anticipating the drop for next week and with having limited knowledge of the game and only playing about 6 hrs during the beta, I would like for ppl to help out with some tips to start out, mainly for PvE as that is what I will mostly be playing.  This might help others as well....
1.  what did the different color shields on the enemies mean?  I remember datto saying something that certain powers were effective against certain shields?
 any other tips that u thinks might help will be useful, thanks...

OP, if u feel like im hijaking this thread, lemme know n ill start a new one

What!!!? Omg that's awesome!! I am very against stealing, but I might have snuck a copy x_x It would have been too tempting. I wonder if the servers are up yet. omg that's awesome. I'll have to start planning the Gamestop heist tomorrow.

That would have been amazing lol. I'll never forget, in 2003 a friends dad worked at UPS and a large box fell revealing a ton of Mountain Dew Pitch Black prototypes fell out. He apparently took a few and gave one to his son who brought it to school. Instead of the plastic wrap, they had cardboard wrapped around the bottle, and were clearly labeled "test product." That was sweet



Apparently bungie has sometime big planned for today. It is rumored they will release a live action trailer for Destiny. Check out their twitter //// Correction, as I was typing this, Bungie released the trailer! Here is it  :D

This is a formidable fanboi hype thread.  ;)

The game has a thrilling atmosphere and the graphics and UI are crisp.

I played the beta to level 5 on Xbone and loved exploring and loved the ad-hoc missions/quests that came up during my very brief foray into the game. I didn't even get a chance to pvp, but I watched some PVP on twitch and the domination style gameplay isn't my favorite (seems like everyone has to chuck a nade or noob tube the capture point these days in COD!)

What other PVP game types are there at launch?

What would you have had Bungie do to wow you? And don't say "release the game early" lol


I thought the video was great. It probably took them hundreds of man hours to produce, and it was sweet seeing HQ CGI of Destiny.

For anyone who has already purchased/preordered the game, this ad is not trying to get you to buy the game. It is a fun trailer targeting those who haven't made the decision yet. For everyone else, it's just supposed to be an entertaining bit to ramp up excitement.


I for one am glad Bungie made one of these. They are fun  :) More positivity people!

I am definitely helping hype Destiny. I can't help it lol. I honestly haven't been this excited for a game ever.

Game modes at launch are Skirmish, Control, Salvage, Combined Arms, Clash, and Rumble. Here is a short video explaining them.

Part of me really wants to preload it.. It's gonna be great playing it right at midnight! But I really need a physical copy for a few reasons. It's going to be a pain driving to Gamestop at 5pm just to wait in a line for a ticket, then go back at midnight to wait in another line for the actual game. ehh, it will be worth it  ::)

This is a situation where it is more advantageous to get the physical copy than digital. If you can find a retailer that sells it early, the servers will be up on Monday morning on the east coast.  Bungie has said they don't care if you play early.

Digital can be preloaded now, but you can't play until 12am PDT.

I'm in Texas. There are tooons of Gamestops around me. The location I purchased my preorder literally sits 200 yards from another Gamestop lol. The only thing is both these store are always crazy busy. Every time I go in there is a line. It's such a busy location they plan to have a Destiny truck out front full of consoles to play on (maybe I should bring my whole XIM setup ::) ) I wan't to get home 12:30 at the latest. I'm already going to be getting tired when I log on probably.

I have called everywhere asking if they will sell the game early, cause every business already has the Bungie boxes in the back.. One store owner even told me to bring him the receipt of anyone who sells the game early, and he will put them out of business lol. I think I'm gonna have to stick to the midnight release  :-\

Go check out Bungie's weekly update posted yesterday. They talk a lot about end game content beyond level 20. http://www.bungie.net/7_Bungie-Weekly-Update---09052014/en/News/News?aid=12096


"Q. What can players expect after they achieve Level 20?

Destiny really begins at Level 20. Afterwards, each player’s power is displayed as their Light Level – this is the yellow number in their nameplate post-20 in the Tower. The way to increase that Level? Get better gear.

Additionally, post-Level 20, players will unlock the Heroic mode progressions for Daily Heroic Story Chapters and Weekly Heroic Strikes. For example, in the Weekly Heroic Strikes, there are three recommended Light Levels and the first one, 22, will feature two modifiers."

I might eventually move down my PC itself but for now, the wires just cant reach it if its on the floor.

So there's a deal on right now that if you buy a PS3 version from PSN, you get comped the same PS4 version.  Same for 360 and XB1, I gather, but I know a lot less about that since I don't have an XB1.

BUT, there's a kicker... you can't pre-load the ps4 version if you do this.  Because your license doesn't actually activate until midnight PDT, the store doesn't recognize you as owning the ps3 version ahead of time and won't comp you the ps4 version until then.  Or so support tells me, anyway.

So if you take this deal, be careful not to run off to your ps4 and pick up that version too without reading carefully, or you'll end up double-billed and having to talk to someone in southeast asia about a refund.  Either wait it out and download at midnight, or don't take the deal and just buy the ps4 version.

I still love my antec case, more solid built and is still hooked up to my old dual core. PC works fine but not needed so it sits in the closet.  I wish the built in desk was a bit bigger but it works fine, the other side is totally empty for another person to setup etc. Im going to try streaming some in a bit to see how well it works. Ive been trying to use the twist ties to clean up some of the excess cables now that im basically all set.

Could also look into getting desk-mounted arms if you want the added flexibility. Considerably more expensive, though. You can also look into getting 4" legs from Ikea and mounting them to a shelf board if you want to stretch across the length of the table; or building something yourself.

This would give me a lot more table room too for stuff... Can't believe I've never thought of it... my wife is always teasing me about looking like a hunched back when I'm on my computer.

Could also look into getting desk-mounted arms if you want the added flexibility. Considerably more expensive, though. You can also look into getting 4" legs from Ikea and mounting them to a shelf board if you want to stretch across the length of the table; or building something yourself.

Oh the places we'll go...


@Zach, raise those guys up :p if you are hunching over your back will greatly thank you. There are very inexpensive monitor platforms you can buy

@Trick, I made that whole dest from Ikea parts lol. The 10ft wooden top was on clearance for $50, and I got 3 wooden easel things for $20 ea


Any experienced raiders (wow/everquest/lineage) etc etc who are up for going for the world first Glass vault clear? Going to try and get next week 2 days off for the raid, looking for budds who are willing to go hardcore once the glass vault opens up and go for that world first clear and get a statue ingame fo life ;p (I'm from the EU)

Used to play wow hardcore, multiple world first kills hehe havent played a hard core since then but im all hyped up for this man. after that it's back 2 family life.

You have to be level 25 to enter the VoG. It will be interesting how quickly people will reach that. I helped form a clan in the beta, though if I'm not playing with them for some reason I'm down  ;)

Still a fun vid hehe. The 3k Clan with Odin etc? Or are there more "xim" clans.

If leveling goes as fast as in the beta i don't think it will be long. they are opening up VOG 16th? I'm sure by then peep will be lvl 25 and all ready to raid hehe.

Post by: Vatx on 12:50 PM - 09/07/14
Don't forget, they sped up leveling in the beta. Also, as you grow in levels, you need more and more experience to reach the next level. It should take a decent amount of time from level 15-20. Bungie stated this game is not about leveling to 20, but going far beyond that. So it shouldn't take a tooon of time, but it will be interesting to see how many people are able to hit the VoG on the 16th :p

all the WOW games, kids would take off of work for an entire week, buy a few cases of energy drinks and try to cap out the first few days. I just did a few levels a night and always caught up to them by the following week. Funny because they never had anyone to do dungeons with for awhile as no one was capped out yet.

Sorry I should have clarified: The M$ pre-loads were meant to unlock at 00:01AM NZ time but im reading that it didnt. It's been 2 hours so I believe Australia is in the mix now at this point.

Anyone with a disc is golden. I have a pre-load myself so looks like ill be doing the Korean VPN technique when I get home from work.

I dont plan to buy from the HK store. I believe a simple region swap in the system settings. Reboot and thats it. If you purchase from the store with HK set, that should do the trick. It should ask for HK address and whatnot. Not exactly sure of the details.

I switched to Hong Kong, haven't preordered yet, but when I go to buy destiny it says unavailable.

The only one I can preorder is the DIGITAL GARDIAN EDITION, which is listed for 559.99$'s.... what the heck?

For those wanting to do it, I just figured it out after an hour of trial and error.


Switch console to HONG KONG
restart console
Go to settings, payment and billing
add address
Address Line 1 - 2 Hang Shing Street
Address Line 2 - City One
City - Shatin
Hong Kong SAR
Telephone - 26375922
999077 zip code

Add your credit card
Go to store
search destiny preorder or w/e it's called
Buy it for 360$HK which is 50$ US.

If you get an error about payment not being accepted your Credit Card company doesn't like it since it's a Hong Kong Purchase, either call them or try another card. I just tried another card and it worked fine.


Enjoy!

I would believe Amazon where given strict rules not to ship games out to arrive early for Destiny. In many case, they would be using their own in-house couriers to deliver the game, which is same day as release date.

I could understand that, but for two things:

1- They have shipped games earlier before when they should not
2- The dev and publisher have said that when you start playing is between you and your retailer.  They were very nonchalant about people getting this particular game early and have the servers up when it is 12 midnight somewhere, so if there was ever a game that Amazon should have shipped early, it should have been this one.

4 hours in someone is already level 20 and on his 2nd character

http://www.twitch.tv/suddoth2

LMAO

just canceled my pre-order. gonna give the HK store a shot when i get in

For those wanting to do it, I just figured it out after an hour of trial and error.


Switch console to HONG KONG
restart console
Go to settings, payment and billing
add address
Address Line 1 - 2 Hang Shing Street
Address Line 2 - City One
City - Shatin
Hong Kong SAR
Telephone - 26375922
999077 zip code

Add your credit card
Go to store
search destiny preorder or w/e it's called
Buy it for 360$HK which is 50$ US.

If you get an error about payment not being accepted your Credit Card company doesn't like it since it's a Hong Kong Purchase, either call them or try another card. I just tried another card and it worked fine.


Enjoy!

Zach are you using US CC ?

I agree with some of the other post that this game is just another Halo but much better and can be played cross platform.  I myself have never liked Halo or any futuristic war games.  BF4 & COD are modern/past time war games with the exception of COD Advanced Warfare that I don't currently play but if I had to choose that would be the one.  I mean no disrespect to all who adore this game Halo or Killzone, just not my cup a tea.  8)

That's brutal. I had to make a new character once cuz the one I made looked SUPER goofy, and so I just started it and went and did some things around the house while I waited. Came back, and it was just finishing up.

G502 user here.

Currently using Halo 4 ST.

DPI is 12k 1000hz
Hip is 16
ADS is 2
No other changes.  No boost, no curves.

Look speed is atrocious on this game lol.  ADS is pretty fast though.  It's very weird.  Look speed gets halved it seems when you sprint.

Have no idea what Bungie is on, but it is obviously good ish.

Glad i took 2 days off for the game hehe, best game since wow vanilla ( for me ). Really like what they did with the whole "wannabe mmo"/Fps mix. It's awesome.

Does anyone know how leveling past level 20 exactly works? I know it has to do something with light rating on armour but that cant be all. I went from lvl 20 to 21 without increasing my light more than it was when i was 20 but just by upgrading a piece of armor? (had 17 light and the game said lvl 20, did the weekly heroic strike and exp a piece of armour which could be upgraded but didnt change the light rating but still went from 20 to 21?

SSD users appear to load in before stock users, but only by 5 to 7 seconds (based off my SSD experience, and a couple friends I know who have them too). Though that's enough time to already be off 100+ yards on a sparrow. I'm glad I got an SSD. It speeds most things up 5-30%, and I notice those differences. Loading into PvP does not change obviously, and the tower is about the same, but everything else is improved.



Loving Destiny! Reached level 20 within 24 hours, and now just trying to get that light level up. Hope everyone is having a fun experience  :)

Turn assist? Is that in the options menu? I'm tempted to get out of bed and go look lol. Anything to fix the turn speed when sprinting. I tried the profile switching in the alpha, but it was inconsistent for me.

The did a good job fixing the Interceptor. All other vehicles feel the same. Sparrows are awesome

At 12k and max in game sensitivity, I prefer 31ADS, and 63HIP

You still accumulate EXP which gets you "motes of light." These can then be turned in for legendary gear with high light levels.

Since I haven't played with anyone its a bit slow and seems every building and mission is in the exact same space. I did some PVP and tore it up but kept getting stuck on scrub teams uggh.

There's no matchmaking in story mode. You are dynamically placed with a set of random players, which roam around the map you currently reside. You can then participate in 'events' which will automatically make you 'join in' when you attack that enemies of that event. Otherwise, you will need to join their fireteam via the options menu if they have their options set so anyone can join. If you don't join up into a fireteam, when you reach bosses in story mode (the bit where you get a message that respawning is restricted), you'll end up fighting on your own.

Competitive multiplayer is where you are randomly matched up with other players. To make the match ups fair, there is a level cap based on the lowest level player, and similar weapons will have the same damage, but you will retain your special powers.

This game is better when playing with a team, so it's best to find one as soon as possible.

is it weird I have been playing some of the first person stuff with my controller? lol Not all mind you as my aim isn't great but I have been wanting to get better with a controller and the PS controller is so easy to just grab and use. For PVP im right on my kb thogh, not taking a chance:) haha Im slowly leveling, in no real rush I guess, still getting bored.

Post by: Od1n on 06:10 PM - 09/11/14
so guys whats your oppinion on the game so far?
im Lv21 now and played all the missions and strikes now

personally im heavily considering to return the game
PvP is among the worst multiplayer experiences in a game i ever had, totally random, unballanced and casual especially in the 6v6 playlists
3v3 is usually the opponent quitting after 2-3 minutes, not fun either!
the maps are also far too close quaters for my likings, with the slow turnspeed and the even slower turning during sprinting this isnt a good combination imo
by the way i already had that oppinion in the alpha and beta, sadly the full version didnt come up with any improvement in that regard

the PvE is somewhat fun if the story wouldnt be so bad, i played The Last of Us directly before Destiny and this literally destroys the game for me, the whole narration and progress appears to be so dull and cold compared to The Last of Us
i dont want to spoiler anyone but im heavily underwhelmed with how the end plot of Destiny develops
i mean all you do is either protect point A or investigate point B and then a dropship comes, so much potential wasted, im actually speechless and have a hard time believing this game comes from the same creators that made Halo...

ill give the game another week, i want to finish the Vault of Glass at least on easy before i return the game
then i can say ive seen the whole game, since PvP isnt anything i fancy to play the game has no more excitenment for me to hold after the Vault of Glass is beaten
collecting the legendaries and excotics might look fun for some, but for me its just too much time to invest compared to the output you get
i mean it takes weeks or month to get a full legendary set and then another month to gather the needed materials to upgrade the set, all that has to be done from either grinding hours of hours the same boring strikes or playing the random PvP



overall rating from me:

PvE: 4/10
PvP: 2/10
overall: 3/10 - wouldnt buy it again, basically a bad combination of borderlands and warframe

We are so spoiled by TLOU. It's curse. Nothing will live up to that level of story telling, well maybe the next Naughty Dog game.

I didn't buy it for similar reasons in the alpha/beta. I do want to play it though because it's a bungie game. Maybe after a price drop and when more content comes out.

good lord, these wait times are destroying it for me. I wait a few minutes some days just to log in. bleh. I hear that star citizen game for the PC is just plain badass but I will have to wait for it to come out which might be next year probably. Like with most games I get a bit of fun and then they die on me, not like our days as kids when the games sucked you in with great content. The last huge game for me was WOW that did it for me. Its still fun to play that from time to time!

Titan - Defender - 24

I'm still having fun, the story for it being a Bungie game is a let down but the PvP is fun.  How much fun it remains is up to what Bungie does next.  Lack of game modes + no private lobbies for competitive stuff will make pub-stomping get old quickly.

ok, pvp needs to be grouped with levels. Seriously all these 20 plus guys with killer guns literally one shot me and im putting burst after burst into them. yah I can kill them but if they get the first shot im already dead. I cant tell you how many times ive taken a corner and one or two shots im dead and they are in t heir 20s. The game needs to be divided up into levels say 5 levels apart like WOW does for BG's. I made level 11 and its ridiculous how fast you die. They meanwhile get like 20 plus kills with their one s hot guns....really bad design.

im currently on lvl 10 and I gotta say that although the pve has been fun (on hard mode) n rewarding, I kinda agree, I can see this game getting old by the time I get to 20 b/c of the repetitiveness.  the environments are beautiful (especially the moon) n the gameplay is easy and fun but like said earlier, it feels like u are constantly doing the same.  ill have to wait n see what the DLCs look like but with the next gen library starting to grow, they better be something real different....

the stats for attack and other stats don't carry over to pvp, the abilities do however and titans get a ton of overshield stuff later on which makes them annoying

the level of the gun is invalid but the gun model/impact etc is what its based on

pvp is awfully balanced though, agreed, the autos out dps or match a precision weapon, so you best just run full auto/shotty or fusion rifle

my 40+ kill games are with fusionrifle ...the model with the higher impact basically is just a longer range shotty for 1 hit kills.... then mix it up with hand cannon or fullauto

anyways i think im done with the game since pvp isn't all that great... the warlock/titan supers are obnoxious and used like panic attacks

some random thoughts.

sounds like bungie balanced the PVP for all level 20's -- in that case, why have a crucible option for those under 20-- bad design.

I'm just starting out and hitting the moon this weekend, but like someone said, fireteaming the PVE missions on hard difficulty was way more fun and challenging than normal which was a yawn.

Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: tuffrabit on 07:07 AM - 09/12/14
Yeah, under 20 PvP is hit or miss.  Some rounds I do good and some I don't.  I tend to get one shotted in the back A LOT... ABC just laughs at me.

I finally tried PvP last night.  I can't imagine what they were thinking, sticking a level 10 in with level 24's.  Even if there's actually some kind of playfield-leveling going on, the impression I got was of being utterly outmatched purely by firepower and shielding.  A level 24 would bungle into a room, I'd unload my AR into him, and eventually he'd react and turn around and OSK me like I'd been twiddling my thumbs waiting for it.

I kinda feel like they spent their entire budget on content creation and marketing, and practically nothing on the game's actual logic...

Headshots aiken... headshots.

I do understand the basic tenets of FPS gameplay and tactics, you know. :P

I just have lousy reflexes and people won't hold still to compensate for that.  Regardless, I saw several occasions where someone was at least as bad as I was, but at a higher level, and the fight was just brutally in their favor due to some combination of level and/or gear.  It's par for the course to be outmatched in skill, but this was something other than that.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: tuffrabit on 12:05 PM - 09/12/14
There's only a few instances where I feel I've been beaten by a higher level due to gear or stat differences.  Most of the time it's my fault for running around like a tard.

Gun on gun face to face = I win.  Headshots with a handcannon or autorifle kills plenty goot.

Were they level 24 and you level 11?  That's really what I'm talking about here.  I could cope with 13 vs. 11, or 23 vs. 21, but more than double my level just seemed ridiculous.

Even if they factor out level-based stats, people still get abilities along the way, and I've seen them in use, so I know they don't filter those out.

It just seems silly to me.  I really can't imagine what they were thinking.  You know, it doesn't even matter if they do manage to equalize all stats, including abilities, somehow, because the mere appearance of matching you to someone more than double your level makes a really, really bad impression on the player.

I get what you're saying. From what I understand some mmo's like gw1 and gw2 set everyone at the same level with the same amount of unlocks regardless of their pve level. I don't know about gear though. I see why they would let people use their pve gear in multiplayer though, it gives incentive to grind pve for better stuff.

Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Od1n on 12:56 PM - 09/12/14
as for the PvP you are best equipped with an assault rifle that

1) has a scope that says in the description it reduces recoil or adds stability
dont care for the graphic bars, the description says how good a scope is not the stability bar

2) has at least one perk (not scope) that adds stability to the gun

i have a green galahad lv6 gun that has both of the above and i do win almost all encounters as my gun has laser-like recoil and i can hit opponents much better
in iron banner PvP this doesnt work though as the PvE stats do 1:1 carry over, go with your strongest gear then
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Vatx on 01:07 PM - 09/12/14
I highly recommend a Shingen E for stability. It has an upgrade that completely maxes out the stability bar, and my favorite scope (rectangular yellow red dot). Absolutely NO recoil! Head shots for days baby


There are so many responses I want to make in this thread, and a few others. I've literally spent every waking momeny on Destiny though lol. The PVP is crazy fun! Blows any CoD game I've ever played out of the water. I'll be back in a few days  ::) Really excited for the ST. Also, I kinda like the BF4 ST more than Halo 4. Aiming feels snappier due to a tiny bit of acceleration. HIP feels smoother too.


Back to Destiny!
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: Aiken_Drum on 01:11 PM - 09/12/14
One reason why the Halo 4 ST may not be what it's cracked up to be is that Destiny was made by Bungie, and Halo 4 by 343 Studios at Microsoft.  They could easily have diverged from what would have been a common starting point in... um, Reach, I guess?  If anything, I would expect that to be a better ST than Halo 4, because I would not be at all surprised if 343 mucked with things, and Bungie left well enough alone.

From what I gather, the heavy weapon. Seems to destroy me in seconds. Problem is, you need to gather ammo for it, so you need to control those purple ammo creates.

Also, you need to stay in groups. PvP isn't too kind on lone wolves...

Pay careful attention to bounties. I make a bee line for them and blow them out ASAP whenever they pop up. Including the Crucible ones. I end up having the opposite problem and just end up doing the story missions on hardmode. Level 18 on my Bladedancer and haven't finished Venus yet.

yeah, like stated earlier, this game SHINES in 2-3 man fireteams on pve hardmodes for the story and strike missions, normal mode is just too easy.  in that aspect, its been worth every penny so far, even if it is a lil repetative but at lvl 12 n hitting venus, it was nice to see some new enemies, definitely some tough, rewarding battles.  but yeah, I dont think this game was meant to run thru the story as the the later missions will be too high level, u need to throw in strikes, patroling, and bounties.  im not even gonna mess with the pvp, after seeing a lot of youtube vids and hearing more than half of u guys saying how broken it is (and agreeing with a lot of the reasons from what I saw), ill stick with the pve stuff, me n my homeboy have been having a blast with it....so far, I give the game an 8.5/10

I personally find the game a ton of fun. You got to play with your friends though. This game is boring solo.


I managed to get my hands on an Exotic Suros Regime auto rifle :D Absolutely murders in PvP. Head shot damage is 45! Thanks to this gun, XIM4, and Mist's excellent Destiny ST, my Destiny Tracker rating is #5 in the world.


How many of you have finished the VoG? I got a legendary ship, and a green weapon lol

I prefer playing PvP. I have gotten all my legendaries and exotics from it. Your score does not seem to matter. Just as long as you finish the match. I got my exotic Suros last place in PvP 5 minutes before going into the VoG for the first time. lol it was great

You can get legendaries from Strikes, but playing them repeatedly is way too boring for me. There is a loot cave that a ton of people have been using on earth, but it's boring grinding.


Zfresh, the Suros is amazing. Play ton of PvP or wait for Xur to stock it. It is great for PvP

wished I liked the pvp more as like u said, engram farming is boring and frustrating.  b/w the commons area on venus, the "beyond" story mission on the moon by the fallen guardian and now the cave on earth, I rotate these to braek the boredom of farming.  the moon one has prolly been the less frustrating of the 3 as far as find stuff but after I would say 6 hrs of farming, neither has gotten one purple/legendary engram/weapon/armor yet!!!!!  My encryptor is at rank 4 although I have read mix stuff on this mattering.  Im at lvl 22 as a warlock with all blue gear and weapons and am dying to get to these raids.  just tryng to grind out these strikes and challenges to build up my VG marks.  How much more consistant would u say the crucible matches are at giving blue and higher stuff at?

Got the Suros also from playing PvP.  Was the Blue one and not Exotic, but it's still a good gun. I rotate it with my Blue Shingen-E and my Blue Galahad-E.  All 3 do very well in PvP.

I think you get better stuff from PvP to be honest.  I'm level 25 and have played a ton of strikes and have never gotten a Purple. I've gotten 4 Purple Engrams from PvP.  Unfortunately none of them turned out to be Legendary's lol.

So there was an update today.  I don't know if this is a coincidence, but in the newbie area... the one where you start on earth and do noob-level patrols, I got killed twice by a level 4 Captain during a live event.  He was beating the crap out of me with some kind of rapid-fire multi-rpg launcher.  I'm a level 27 with all-purple gear nearly maxed out on upgrades and he took me out in seconds both times.  I never actually killed him and failed the event.  What the fudge.

This is the only thing in this game I don't understand.  No matter what level you are everything has a chance to kill you.  Leads me to believe that mobs dmg is adjusted to your level.  No matter what level a captain is they hit me like a truck.

This only happens during a public event where "The Captain is the event". It's always been this way though. Don't pay much attention to thier rank as they have to make them excessively strong in order to remotely even make the event a challenge.

Absolutely best way right now is the Queen's missions. You are guaranteed a legendary every time. I got 5 legendaries last night (currently you can only get helms and chest plates), but broke them all down for my raid gear. Hoping to hit level 30 :p

I can't believe you farmed the loot cave for 6 hours with out a single legendary. That is really bizarre. I got a legendary there in 15 minutes, but it was too boring. One of the main things holding you back I think is your level. You should begin receiving more as you hit 24+. If you can get the legendary helm and chest plate from a couple queens missions, then upgrade those armour pieces, you should hit level 26 at least. That will help your drop rate of more legendaries. Also, don't forget you can buy legendaries from all the factions in the tower. That's how I got to level 28

I died a few times. They are relatively difficult thanks to the shields around many enemies. Brind the proper weapons to break the shields down, and have 2 friends with you. Should not take you longer than 20 or 30 minutes per mission. They are really just story missions on a harder level.

If you can aim HC is very viable and a lot of fun.  I don't know which one you are talking about specifically though.

The one I use, I got in the Crucible.  It has 9 bullet mag, ability to speed up reload, and ability for explosive rounds.  The impact is also almost 100%.  If the one you want to buy has only 6 bullet mag and slow reload, then I wouldn't, but if it has 8, 9, 10+ bullets and high impact, I think you'll like it just fine.

I love the map sizes. Though on the larger maps, 6v6 is not enough. It should be 8+ vs 8+. I like having a lot of people to shoot at.

Third Eye: Radar stays active while locking down the sights.
Damage 248
Mag size 12

I figured you meant that one.  Definitely worth it to me, and I will also be buying it.

With that many bullets in the cylinder and the impact that it has, it will be a great choice for PvP.

I've recently discovered the joys of the Hand Cannon in PvP.  My Big Chief melts faces.

Yep, it has to be the right HC, otherwise it gets frustrating since other players don't cooperate by standing still long enough to die. Ungrateful bastards.

Auto rifles are best IMO. ROF for scout rifles is terrible

Yep and OP, which is why 90% of the players in PvP use them, especially since most maps are pretty small.
I think the small maps are too small for 6v6. Anyone feel the same?

i feel like the maps are too small period.  I'd love bigger maps and higher player counts.  At least 10v10.

Maps way too small for Rumble. Everyone spams autos and shotties.

Oooh boost to scout rifle makes me happy. If they can increase the impact, I would choose them over the hand cannons....

Auto and shotty nerf is needed, we all know that. I hope it is more than just base damage decrease.....

Sorry Uber, I would help you but I'm only 22. Can't get new armor or weapons for a while even though I've been playing PvP like a mad man.

While you wait would you want to do the weekly co-op? It doesn't matter if you've already done it. I just need someone to join me.

Also, I take it the Queen's Wrath is co-op which means you need to go through with a team and they're not assigned like in strikes. If that's the case then I'm guessing I can't do the Queen's missions since I have no one else to do them with. :(

Which one, I'm a level 27 and have a few bounties of my own to cash in.

ORG, it's the weekly heroic strike, Ishtar Sink on Venus. But it's co-op and not a strike where you get placed on a 3 player team. Can't do it solo b/c the boss at the end regenerates health. It would take 10-15 mins with 1-2 other players.

I need this challenge to clear out a bounty requirement. It's 3:30PM Central and I'm on Xbox. I'd literally stay on all night just to have someone help me with this. Gamer tag is Woof Dah.

I'll be on tonight, between 10-12ET. I already completed this strike but I'll help you out if you still need it.

If anyone wants to add me for whatever, feel free, my tag is under my avatar. I've got a pretty stout level 27 (almost 28) Hunter. I almost always get the Flag in Crucible lol.. if you get my drift.

Anyways, would be fun to team up with other XIM players.

@#$% you, Bungie.  I had six of the damned things lined up, having recovered about five before, getting them upgraded once each before recovering them.  Now I'm out the six ascendant energy I should have gotten for them.

What's the point now of even doing the Queen's Wrath missions after you got the two pieces they give out?  You don't get Queen's rep for them.  They're difficult.  They give out nothing aside from the head/chest pieces.

What total @#$%-hats.  And, despite the talk, still no nerf for OP weapons, gear upgrades, or supers in poorly-matched PvP, when all it takes is some number tweaking.

This must be Bungie's first game.

I thought it was one weapon and one piece of armor?  I'm not talking from experience, I just now got my first piece I could actually use.  A Warlock Nintendo power glove.  I'll have both sub classes maxed out before I farm all the helium coils for it.

One thing about taking my time, I get to learn from everyone else.  Anyone know of a good primary to look to upgrade?  I keep going back to the Stranger's Rifle.  I've got more powerful blues, but the thing is just so very stable, I'm a stand back and snipe kinda guy and it does headshots so well.

That has been out there for awhile (the info about one piece) can't remember where I first heard it though.

I don't think I would be getting rid of pieces you could use, I wouldn't be surprised to see Bungie raise the rank up to 40 (or higher) in the near future and say "Guess what guys and Gals, you can now wear as much Exotic armor as you'd like. Aren't you happy you scrapped that @#$%!"

I mean as fast as people are maxing out the ranks and as much as everyone's complaining about it. I think the writing on the wall is pretty visible at this point.

I wouldn't doubt if they offer DLC like Fallout did several years ago. "Buy our DLC and you can then level up to 40, Yay!!"

A few months later...

"Buy our DLC and you can now level up to 50, woo hoo!!"

Oh thank you, thank you Bungie (uh um, Activision) how thoughtful of you!

"you're welcome, Bitches!".

Armor is class-specific and there's really no reason to play the same class twice.  So... thanks for the thought, but it doesn't help at all.  :-\

As ORG suggested, I'm just keeping both on the expectation that more levels = more exotic slots = DLC selling point.  Still, I could have used those motes for something else in the meantime.

I'll be extra pissed if it's not part of the season pass, though.

I called that Xur would be selling the Suros this weekend lol. It is already spammed in PvP. And soon it will be nerfed.

Xur was selling the two things I was hoping he would this weekend. The Emerald drive, and Hunter helm that keeps radar. I picked them both up. Now I really can't wait to get my hands on that lime green crucible sparrow   :P

Highly recommend picking up the Suros while you can!


I can't believe the queens armour doesn't give shards anymore.. I thought that was the POINT of the queen.. Do her missions, build up your favorite piece of armour. Stunned Bungie didn't foresee this. All legendaries should give ascendants! At least make them more rare or something, like every other queens mission. Luckily I was able to dismantle 6 pieces before the patch. Very stupid.

Same here, will be dumping Destiny b/c of the endless grinding it takes to upgrade weapons/armor. Hard to believe that Bungie saw this as an appealing part of the game.

I was bummed out that I didn't have enough strange coins to buy the Suros Regime from Xur this weekend.  That, on top off all the times that the Cryptarch turned my purple engrams into Green's had me ready to choke someone.

Then yesterday the Cryptarch turned a Purple into the Monte Carlo Exotic, and I felt better lol.

I've got strange coins up the wazoo. Too bad there wasn't a way to donate them before I sell this game back to GameStop for $40. The mind numbing hours of farming it takes to upgrade items was the tipping point. Now when I get a legendary or unique item it's more of a curse b/c of the time it'll take to get it ready for use in PvP.

Halo Master Chief can't come soon enough. By then Destiny will be a long forgotten memory.

I think as more and more players throw in the towel they may balance the game more and with the addition of new games releasing they may host events that appeal to users to keep them around. Tough call though, sell it now and get more money back or shelf it until they improve it.

This game hates me. I've been stuck on 24 for a week. I'm not getting anything except for greens. I turned in bounties.  Did a few weekly challenges and strikes. Finished off some missions with some fellow ximmers. No luck at all. Cryptarch not helping at all. I get purples and it turns out to be a green or blue that I already have. This game is driving me crazy.  I've given it a chance but it hasn't given back.

Don't turn in purple engrams until they issue the next patch.  They said they were removing the ability of them to give greens and blues.  I do fear this also means purple engrams won't give exotics on rare occasions, but that's a decent tradeoff.

when  you can put down a game and not play it for a day or two and miss it, for me that means its time to sell! That point was reached at the first week in. Hence the sale on ebay. I don't get bored on most COD's and for this brand new triple A game (supposedly) then that's pretty bad. When the big reviewers were slamming this game, you knew it was going to fall short. I guess I was duped and sold on something that never was (huge open worlds, mmo style game etc when none of it ever was. I am scared of this new COD AW about to drop as well, the last few CODs haven't been great and now your going to fly around like titanfall.....talk about a ripoff. Might be the nain in the coffin till treyarch has their last shot at it which might be the save Activision needs.

No point in keeping the purples now. Bungie mentioned that they will turn to Blue engrams after the patch.

here the best weapon in the game, for PvP too
you get it from finishing the Raid on Hard Mode, its basically a machine gun as a primary

It was on the release about the patch. Basically says use them as they will be downgraded to blue. They tried to make a joke out of it by suggesting that's what the Cryptarch would do anyway. No, I didn't laugh either.

Ah, yes, so it was.  Also this subtle note:

Quote
•Ascendant materials have been promoted to Legendary to closer associate them with the gear they are used to upgrade

Not pointed out is the fact that making them legendary probably makes them less likely to drop randomly.

This game is driving me crazy.  I've given it a chance but it hasn't given back.

There seems to be a real hump at that spot.  I watched the progress bar not move for what seemed forever at 24 and had only one legendary piece of armor.  I should have just started a Titan with all the titan gear I got. 

Then I hooked up with a couple of guys for the queens run and ended up with multiple purples with a full suit of legendary armor, a legendary machine gun and had enough juice for a exotic helmet.  I hit level 26 the next day, I'll probably hit 27 the next time I play.  Go figure. 

I'd still like to try out the raids and I might even pop for the expansion packs when they drop. 

But I won't be farming for upgrades, where's the challenge in that?  Yeah that spirit bloom was vicious, but with 1200 defense points and an exotic BFG, I managed to turn it into a FTD flower arrangement.  Watch out helium filaments, I've got a balloon with your name on it.

Would be surprised to see this change. Bungie randomizes the items to instill a sense of fairness otherwise the best players would always get the loot.

...and since loot == win in PvP, it would widen the gap rapidly.

As someone with little chance of ever besting the good players, due to aging reflexes and vision, I'm cool with this method, and I'd like to think I'd be cool with it if I were a good player as well.

If one is a good player, one can use their skills to get loot in VoG or something, or their plentiful pvp rep/cred with a faction to buy good loot.  It's not like skill does one no good.

Its slightly annoying that at a certain stage you just start repeating mission/strikes with varying level of difficulties but some battles are intense which can still make it enjoyable.

They do seem to have something else to offer on a weekly basis tho which could give the game some life leading up to DLC.
Title: Re: Who's excited for Destiny on XIM4?
Post by: nataku_0 on 01:18 AM - 09/30/14
I agree with you guys that it would widen the gap....but why not do something like...MVP of team is guaranteed an item, and the rest of the team has a random chance....it just seriously sucks to lose a match because of dead weight on your team, only to find that those dead weights get items and you don't....

That's overshadowed by the mind numbing hours of repeatedly farming the same crap in order to upgrade legendary/exotic items so that you can use them in PvP. There's no challenge to killing the enemies that are in the area so you just keep walking around in circles checking the same spawn locations for chests.

True the upgrades for those weapons need work but they are better from the off than some of the other weapons.

Nagh, even with a XIM 25 is way too low. For every level below the mob you are, you do 30% less damage and take 30% more damage.

Honestly, if you get a group of 27+ that aren't bad you can do the thing in like an hour and a half.

Got that sniper rifle too.  Pretty beast.  Does 13k precision damage  :o

You are guaranteed a legendary item for every Queen's Wrath.  The annoying thing is that I keep getting the same helmet and chest plate over and over.  Have 3 of each.  Just want gauntlets and boots.  I'll even take the Legendary ship at this point lol.

Will be 100 times more fun after the Fusion Rifle nerf.  So sick of dying without any chance to respond, because people charge them up while behind a wall so that as soon as they appear from behind the wall the shot fires and OHKs you.  Only thing I hate.  Don't even mind Shotguns.  Just the Fusion Rifle peekaboo.

I started doing the Earth-based "devil archon" QW kill order solo at around 25 or 26.  It's tough and takes time, but there's a ton of cover as long as you take out the shanks ASAP.  (They will come and kill you in cover.)  It's definitely the easiest of the QW kill orders, though I should point out that the chest armor doesn't drop much.
