Wow, what a night of Destiny


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   ;)

The jigoku sr3 is off the chain. The gun does head shots like no other. Highly recommended everyone was asking me what the hell I was using.
It's a canes thing... U wouldn't understand.

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.

Question for the colorblind folks out there ---- how the hell do you tell who's who in this game?  I've been watching videos and everyone is so colorful and the maps are purdy and all that but WHO IS ON MY TEAM?

Have you tried adjusting the color settings on your monitor? Maybe crushing one of the colors will make it easier to distinguish from others?

I've actually tried that Mist. It worked on a couple different games, but often times allows players to blend in with the background even more so than they normally do. Improves one aspect, but hinders me in another...

Bungie! Get those servers back up  :P


It's a good feeling being on the 2nd page of the Destiny leaderboards


This was the most fun game ever! Gaming to Rap God was epic. @#$% awesome song, especially played to an awesome game

http://www.twitch.tv/ninja/b/548927678 - Skip to 19:25 (I'm A-t-m-o-s). Best spot is at 23:40. Watch the activity line at 27:10. Then I get shutdown by someone with my name! lol


Engram guy?

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.

Only have a couple more months until the full game is released, and by that time XIM4 will be available  :) It will be an amazing experience

Anyone try the Beta on PS3 to see how the XIM is going to handle with this amount of aim assist?
