    I played the alpha, which while I was previously completely uninterested in the game, was enough to tip me into preordering it.
    Currently waiting on the beta to install, and super excited for it.

    The beta is pretty much the alpha, as I'm sure you've found out. There are some balance fixes, some more story mission, and a new multiplayer map, but it's all the same.

    WHICH IS AWESOME BECAUSE DESTINY KICKS ASS.

    It's back on if you guys weren't aware.

    I'd also like to discuss peoples favorite weapons so far. For the primary I've gotten to like the Scout Rifles. I've done better with them than I have with the other types. Haven't messed with the Special Weapons a lot. Mainly used the Shotgun and just started messing with the Fusion and Sniper Rifles. For Heavy Weapon I've started preferring the Rocket Launcher mainly because my Machine Gun was crap.

    I was a DMR guy in halo, so I'm Scout rifle all the way in Destiny. I tried switching to an Auto Rifle in smaller maps, but I ended up just doing better when I stuck to my Scout Rifle. I sparingly use a fusion rifle on small maps, too. I currently have gear that boosts my scout rifle ammo capacity and reload speed, so I'm a killin' machine.

    As of right now. I have over 13 hours of Destiny Footage from my PS4 and Xbox One Exploits.

    Dissecting it all into a montage is going to be a challenge. And we still got today and tomorrow.

    Iron Banner is back today. I'll be sliding on at 1pm est on the PS4 to catch it before I go to bed. And Saturday is the last full day with the beta. Iron Banner will be running again Saturday( same as today. 3 times each day, 2 hours only apiece.)

    Last time, the Iron Banner snuck up on me and I was ill prepared. I think I'm finally ready to get dangerous today!

    HYPE!

    Remember. Saturday. 2pmPDT/5pmEST. Bungie is doing something you need to be online for to get a PERMANENT REWARD for the full game, to show you Beta'd the hell out this past week.

    13 hours...of Strikes, Crucible, Soloing Public Events, Explore, Story Runs, Exploring those over leveled areas, messed with various classes on each platform, playing with friends, playing without them....my god. Full game I might as well throw my life in the garbage! And invest in a bigger Hard drive, fuck!

    Even with Xbone's issues(THE FRIENDS LIST COMPLETELY VANISHED YESTERDAY! OMG. NO INVITING, NO PARTY CHAT.). I did managed to run through the moon on both platforms(YES!) then went back to PS4 and ran that moon one time and went exploring. Short lived unfortunately. But it was awesome to go SOMEWHERE ELSE! lol.

    Rolled into the Iron Banner again...which I was enjoying more than regular Control.(Maybe cause the other 2 maps are seen more in rotation?) btw, did great on Friday's Iron Banner, sad I ran it solo. (Friend didn't wake up in time) and I got my Emblem and Armband on PS4. That same friend, I helped him get his Iron Banner cloak yesterday after we were done on the moon(should I say, when the moon was done with us :( )

    Is the beta actually ending today? Are we going to be able to keep any of the stuff were earned?(Like Iron Banner Rewards, Legendary Lvl 20 Stuff?) will our characters carry over?(I wouldn't be too hurt by this) Bungie. Awaken! GIVE US THE ANSWERS!

    It was planned to end today, but recent bungie posts have made it clear they'll be doing something similar to the Alpha, extending it and doing weird stuff to the game/networking to test things out.

    People keep hoping, but there's been no indication that anything will transfer over, save for the reward for playing yesterday at 2pm PDT. Bungie has never had anything more than a special banner or emblem cross over from a one of their betas, so there's precedent for a complete wipe.

    Also, my Titan:

    hey so are there any people getting destiny on 360? reading all this stuff about bungie (stupidly) only allowing end game raids to be done between friends makes me wonder if ill even be able to get 5 other people together to play with. lot of my friends have got xbox ones now so i wouldnt rate the chances of them buying a last ggen version of the game.

    Level 20, day one. Played for damn near 18 hours with two buds. Ate a lot of snacks. Felt amazing.

    + dat bungie DNA, the shooting action is fantastic
    + good enemy AI on harder difficulties
    + great design and art direction, stunning environments at times

    - barely-there story does nothing for me, or anything else by the sounds of it, so disappointing
    - the lack of voice chat outside of fireteams is kinda fucking stupid
    - "expansions" appear to be setting themselves up to use in-game but locked-out environments, meaning the DLC is maybe a cash grab :(

    I give it a 8 or 9, based on how much fun I had yesterday, but taking into account some disappointments.

    Getting passed level 20 is tedious so far. Part of it is RNJesus. Or if you want to try and get a ton of Vanguard/Crucible rank which takes a while. 22 right now. Slowly working my way up.

    I dont know how to do missions cooperatively and have few to no online friends in australia that have ps4 (all my friends are american xbox players except for like 1) so leveling is a struggle and not so fun because this game really does seem to be geared towards coop (which is great because co-op halo 1 is probably some of the funnest times ive ever had with video games)

    Go on bungie.net and search for some oceanic clans, then send a bunch of friend invites with the clan name in it to let them know that's why you're adding them. I made about a dozen new friends just from people sending me requests like that.

    I don't find it tedious at all, but that's probably because I really enjoy playing in the crucible. RNG is certainly a factor, but gear isn't everything. I played a few matched with my babby secondaries (level 2 and 3) and did very well. It's mostly about how you pull the trigger, and no gear will save you where you wouldn't have saved yourself. In that sense, I like getting new gear, it's fun and exciting, but it's not stressful or, "too slow."

    Well, I'm trying to get the better gear so I can be ready for the Raids and to do some of the higher level strikes. The worst part about the RNG to me is when I get have a great game and the guy who goes 4-15 gets a Legendary Engram.

    So I've heard Destiny is good, but not THE GAME THAT WILL CHANGE VIDEO GAMES as the marketing officials want you to believe. Same thing happened with Titanfall where it was supposed to be the shooter that would change shooters forever and it came out and yeah, it was good, I had fun with it, but it wasn't anything extraordinary that we'd never seen before. I have a feeling we'll see a lot of that this generation.

    I agree they both have that problem, but Destiny actually has legs as a long-term game, with extensive co-op and gear grinding. We'll see if things are still kicking after Call of Duty 2014 drops. I hope so.

    I have the Ps4 copy as well ^_^
     
  40. I'm currently on the PS3 version. I purchased the digital version to take advantage of since I have plan on getting a PS4 before Jan 15, where the free PS4 upgrade promotion ends.

    Already got a Warlock to 23 and got my first legendary!

    Which only a Hunter can equip. -_-

    Welp! Time to make a Hunter.
