Hello all - like many you, I'll be picking up Destiny tomorrow. In my case, for the PS4. Would anyone be interested making (an) SD GL group(s)?

I'm available tomorrow (Tuesday) and Thursday evenings 7-10pm EST and on the weekend. PSN in sig.

good idea. I'll be on the XB1 side though...hoping this game doesn't suck.

I've played some UC2 with you back in the day. You were good at that game and I felt bad for sucking. laugh out loud

Ha! If I recall there were 1 or 2 people who were annihilating everyone. I don't think I was ever that great at UC2. Thanks for the compliment though!

By the way, does Destiny have pick-up groups? And can you voice chat in the hub areas? I didn't want to spoil anything for myself so I didn't try the beta at all.

No story spoilers

l'm already on UPS delivered early. My short take after 12 hours. Don't call it Destiny, let me explain. To understand Destiny you need to understand Bungie. They took everything fun from Diablo 3 and Borderlands. And Halo and made a game. You get new guns but you are only level 2 but the machine gun is level 5 its gonna be frustrating until you can use that gun. Halo 3 AI enemies take cover and run for it just before you kill them. Very similar to Halo 3 enemies, Same guy who did the Halo 3 AI did the Destiny AI. You shoot until their shield drops. Then shoot some more until they die. Gets old very fast. Graphics wise there's no Tessellation or HDR very little Physics. Its like High end PC graphics from 5 years ago.
Its an MMO and towns are barren no people yet. A few shops or merchants here and there. Its all a big gear grind what will really kill this game fast are Micro transactions pay $1.00 for your new helmet or new pants which give you faster reload ability just waitnfor the DLC it coming. ts like Diablo in that fashion why do my new pants make my weapon stronger I don't know they just do. What happened to the weapons ? Its the future its Bungie where are the plasma cannons and lasers, and weird gun that shoots purple ooze and swords. Nope every gun feels like its an M16 and MP5 or a Sniper or a Machine gun that's all. With dressed up pieces of colored plastic around them of different colors white its an OK gun. Find the same gun but its not purple buts now and it shoots faster. And there's mods much the same way Diablo 3 let's you add a gem to your sword which gives it special abilities. In Destiny you can add mods to any gun depending on you Rank. But the mods are only menu based not actual attachments you can see. Like a menu let's you add more damage or let's your gun not recoil so much. I'm use to more tactical weapon attachments which you can see. But absent are the cool alien weapons all guns are bullet based but don't drop anynshells. No cool gear like C4 or mines or drones just walk, shoot get ambushed thanks to use of terrain. Pick up new guns rinse repeat. In 2014 after seeing what cool Melee move Titanfall and Halo 4 can pull off Destiny melees are sad. If sneak up behind someone or they come face to face the melee is the same animation. At least Halo 4 had context based melee assasinations. Its gonna be fun for a while especially the customization But when you realize its basically endless when you can pick up the same gun only now its a different color and does 4x the damage. And tons of DLC options your best armed and looking in game character will be surpassed in 1 second buy a kid with his credit card buying new armor and mods its all for naught. IMHO Advanced Warfare and FarCry 4 will deliver fun 1080p 60 frames per second story driven fun. 30 fps and MMO with waterd down graphics feels like a cash in vehicle.

EDIT: Wow, this guide is sick.

So does it have microtransactions that actually cause it to be pay-to-win? Your lack of punctuation makes that sentence very confusing. I'm sorry, but this "review" seems peculiar to me, something makes me think it's not very genuine. But, my copy is at home for me when I get off work, I'll see for myself.
