this is different/ weird... destiny & google teamed up for a "google earth" version of the planets in destiny:

I loved borderlands, and to think that a halo-esque game from bungie will include elements of open world and customization (hallmarks of BL) makes my $#@! feel good.

Hmm well I'll keep an open mind and wait for the reviews. I still don't understand the whole MMO but not really thing and how that works for a FPS. I've never played borderlands so don't know what that experience is like
Is this like a FPS RPG? Like you level your character and equip stuff etc?
then throw in that they said the level cap is 20(granted you can level up based on equipment and such) and that the little ghost bot is a poor version of Guilty Spark 343 and I decided to hold off on buying this until I hear some glowing reviews.
its fun but sometimes you find yourself grinding or farming loot/enemies etc.
so again, keep an open mind. Bungie has hit homeruns since they launched...
Actually a decent breakdown for under 4 minutes. Can't stand the commentator?
Standard single-player mode with cutscenes, missions, etc. You can alternatively play with 2 friends to form a "fire team". The first part of the "mmo" trait comes here, where this mode can auto-populate others players into it (I have no idea how or if pvp will work outside of duels). This gives you the impression of an MMO while you're really just sharing your zone with others. Essentially you kill things, level up, gear up, etc.
This mode also has "Strikes", which are more difficult missions that require you to play with your, above, fire-team, a la co-op. They can take 20 minutes to an hour.
This is your standard multiplayer mode, similar to Halo, COD, etc. I imagine there will be deathmatch, team deathmatch, CTF, etc. You have 3 classes with their own strengths, none of which are restricted by weapon-type. Standard matches will balance character level so no one is grossly overpowered, but you can choose to play without the balance adjustments too.
Not much is known about these. Instead of a 3-man fire-team, you're playing with 6 men. I imagine they'll be end-game content, requiring cap level and much better gear to stand a chance at success. And the whole team-work thing. If it's anything like WoW's raids, they can take upwards of a couple of hours and plenty of whipes. They require a great deal of communication and planning, and Destiny DOES require these 6 be actual friends, no pick-up groups.
Then you have the standard lobby (tower) where you buy $#@!, $#@! around, MMO $#@!.

I imagine Strikes should still allow some sort of match-making, and that's probably the best way to chock up a few Destiny mates for those who keep their friend-list limited.
For those who are serious gamers and like playing in clans and what not check out Primeguard. A buddy of mine is in it.
live action trailer released:
my oldest son (6) thought it was a new halo game. i wish some concept artists would find a home outside the halo armor genre.
If you buy the physical copy you'll have to have the disc in the drive to play, correct? I think I'd rather deal with the inconvenience of not being able to play right away at midnight then have to bother with switching game discs, but I'm also a lazy ass.
The Bungie servers could be up as early as 7 AM CDT on the 8th but the Microsoft and Sony digital sites say it unlocks at 12:01 PDT. I know you can preload the digital versions starting the 7th. Not that the few hours is gonna make much difference in the long run.Bungie ✔ @Bungie
Destiny servers will admit Guardians as soon as it is September 9th somewhere in the world. When you play is between you and your retailer.
8:46 PM - 23 Aug 2014
It looks like the servers are already up, Engadget has a livestream on their site and it looks like there are others on twitch.
Servers are up, but if you pre-ordered the game digitally you have to wait for tomorrow.
Just ordered the PS4 Destiny bundle. Will I have to create a new PSN name or can I transfer my PS3 one?
Just ordered my headset right now to pick up tonight at best buy. I'm pumped.
I'll be on tonight after work. Can't wait.
Took the day off work. Playing now. This is the earliest I've woken up on my own in a long time.
Gonna grab it at lunch - thinking this is the answer to my summer game drought. Better buy some flowers on the way home..
Damnit men, some of us are at work and can't play until after 5 or later if we have kids (like this $#@!ing guy)....
Throw some of us a bone. How is it? Any major differences from the beta? They improve on anything? Is this $#@!ing game all it's cracked up to be?
I'm kicking myself in the ass right now for stopping on the way home and picking this up. I had just put in a 19 hour day though and was just ready to get in bed. Still had to get up at 4:30 this morning too so that pushed my decision. I'll get it on the way home today and get it loaded up. Hopefully get some gametime in tonight when the kids go to bed.
Played it last night for about an hour or so once it went live, but it was all stuff I already played during the Beta. I'll be on tonight after work (Xbox One).
I also downloaded the Destiny app for my phone and noticed there's a section for Groups. I'm not exactly sure how to start or join a Group, but I think there should be a Shaggy group once someone figures it out.
I'll be playing on PS4 - hit me up "Bagelbeard"
Ps4. Baumtrack. Hit me up or I'll hit y'all up. And yes, we should form a group. Can't $#@!in wait
App on phone? I thought this was just a FPS type game?
just to track stats and chat in forums and what not
Yeah the only app that was worth a damn was the bf4 battlelog app.
It was used for load outs, server changes and stuff
I threw a Shaggybevo one together but didn't take any real time making it loom pretty or setting it up, when I get a chance I'll make it look better. For now though it looks like it's both PS and Xbox: http://www.bungie.net/en/Clan/Detail/203136
I got a couple hours in, but I can't add anything to how it relates with the beta since I didn't play it. I'm really enjoying it, but regret playing on a 65". Input lag and only 30fps make it a little uncomfortable, but I got used to it. Personally, I wish companies would stop cutting framerate for better visuals, but I digress...
I started a hunter and a warlock, so progress was limited. While I expected the hunter to be my main, I had a blast with the warlock and dem vortex grenades and glide. We'll see.. Missions were fun, I was surprised with how many times I had to revive other players despite playing solo, which is a pretty sweet mechanic. The bosses added a good degree of difficulty, especially when you're a lower level and play on hard, though I feel the AI is a little lackluster. Obviously this can change substantially, but I've found the only time they're clever is their ability to vanish to other cover when I close for melee.
Weapons seem fair, but the semi-auto just feels abysmal, despite pot-shots in the face.
Again, I'm not too far in and new, so I imagine most of this will change in time.
Dat speeder tho..
I'm loving it so far. Only a level 9. Played last night and a little bit today. I'm using the hunter class. My group of friends has split the classes up pretty evenly. Have a representation from all of them.
Really enjoying it so far. Just got to level 7 as a Warlock. On PS4, kindalikemike
The app also lets you change out your guns/armor/ etc. (or so I read).
really wish you could change the button bindings, i keep throwing a grenade when i want to run
Heads up, Phogoth is a son of a bitch. It took me and Pug over an hour to down him, and I had to hide like a little bitch must of the time for respawns to pop.
