It would have been hilarious if OBsIV gave us a sneak peek of a USB port! That post suddenly became hilarious

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.

yea, that seems to be everyone's main complaint right now that it seems similar to Halo x Borderlands....but i mean it is Bungie...i'm not really surprised.

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)

so it's like Halo+Borderlands+WoW?

an MMO set in the future might be cool.  Thought I watched some gameplay and didn't see anything that really stood out and grabbed my attention.  not yet anyway.

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..

I seen the devils lair footage, i was yawning.. Not a good sign.
The music felt soo cheap.. The gun play seemed so linear..

I feel the game would have been much better sticking with the Halo movement and control scheme!
And i hated Halo MP lol..

I hope it turns out good, but from what i just seen i feel a little let down.

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
