In Topic: New Bungie game: Destiny

26 July 2014 - 06:08 AM

So the beta closes tonight, and I've had a chance to put in a little bit of time between the 360 and PS3, though I haven't played the PVP (not interested at this point because I'm not too good at Halo PVP).  I really like the game.  I like the story, the missions, the challenges for me, and the gear.  It's fun.  I haven't had a lot of luck with Fireteams, but then again, I don't have a ton of friends on XBL or PSN.  I just really like the game.

 

It's not for everyone.  The hardcore FPSers who gave the Halo community a terrible name are still there.  Check the bungie.net forums...ewww..  Some people don't like the amount of content (those who hate DLC), soome don't like the gear grind, and people have been finding all kinds of flaws in the game.  I do really enjoy my time.  I like the feeling of success when I beat a boss, and frankly some of the attacks like a Titan's punch or headshots with a sniper rifle, or the Warlock Nova Bomb are really satisfying for me. 

 

I look forward to getting my preorder and enjoying what I can when I can.  I don't have tons of time so the Xbox DLC delay isn't a big deal for me.  PC master race folks will laugh and scoff at me, but I look forward to enjoying some Destiny soon!

 

PS - Plus I love being able to manage my characters from the app...I spend a lot of time checking my dude out =)

So anyone with a ps4 play the alpha this weekend? Anyone check out the twitch streams or YouTube stuff?

For me, looks a lot like a halo game. It also looks like a mmo. I think it it could be fun, but there is little difference in the classes or races. The alpha gave little in the way of story.

I look forward to actually playing the summer beta in July.

Huge difference. Sony threw some TV and hardware stuff in after 45 minutes of awesome game reveals and demos, and then followed it up with another 30 minutes of game reveals and demos. MS said hey look the Xbox 1 will be the center of your entertainment and it does all this stuff not related to gaming, then showed Ghosts and a Halo 5 logo. 

 

I didn't watched a presentation.  I like to watch the highlights =)

 

That being said, Sony and MS are both going hard after your living room.  Sony did the smart thing and concentrated on the gaming aspects first, which is what they did with the PS3/Blu Ray drive.  Get them in the homes first, THEN go after the rest of the living room.  Hence why Blu Ray ran away with the HD Disc format wars.  Fundamentally, the difference is that MS went after it harder, and it was a poor move.

 

I think the thing that I'm really thinking about is the idea of the of the new Rainbow Six game and the Battlefield Hardline.  Not as much about wanton killing as it is about achieving a goal.

 

Oh, and I forgot Crackdown 3....Looks like we'll be able to really destroy things which looks like it will be devilishly fun!


In Topic: Hulu Plus question

Yep, it's primarily limited to Fox, ABC and NBC.  There is a strong representation of the BBC and other shows.  A lot of Anime, but that's not my thing anymore.  You usually have to wait 24 hours after the live showing before you can see it on Hulu.  As for how long it remains, well, that depends on the show.
