Tell us what YOU think of Destiny

Right, Destiny is out – which means many of you have been playing the game since yesterday. Very many of you are likely further than the point you got to in the beta. that means that not only have you gone to the Moon, but you’ve probably hit Venus and beyond.

I’m enjoying my time with it. For now, I’m trying to do as much of the campaign (largely solo) before I start entering in to group activities, but I’ve engaged in a fair bit of insanity with public events and one strike mission with my fuzzy friend, Garth.

I’ll be honest; it’s fun… but there’s definitely an element of repetition in the campaign mission structure.  Right now, far too many missions seem to be me guarding my Ghost while it gets info from some computer and swarms of enemies descend on the place. I’m definitely going to have to put in many more hours before I’m able to accurately review it. It certainly picks up a lot when you’re playing it with friends as opposed to going it alone.

User reviews at the moment – on sites like Metacritic – aren’t too favourable, with many saying the game’s boring, decrying its missions and the fact that it plays much like an MMO. The current user score for the Xbox One version is 4.8, with 5.1 for the PS4; it’s filled with this sort of thing.

Those of you who’ve been playing; what do you think of Destiny? Is it the best thing since sliced bread, or is it just another over-marketed, overhyped game?

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Guild

    I’m enjoying the game and I’ll be playing it for a long time. Best part is teaming up with mates and rampaging missions or hitting up the pvp. It’s a great social fun game to play.

    • Francois Knoetze

      you and me both dude. after you helped me with some strikes and leveling up in the beta I was hooked. I am probably behind on my leveling (7 right now) but if you are up for a raid and a couple of strike missions again let me know!

      • Guild

        I’m way behind. Got mates on lvl 16 last night and I’m on 4. Managed to get 2 hours in before I had to jump off. So I’m hoping to really get further tonight and this weekend. Definitely need to try organize some game time together again

        • Francois Knoetze

          can’t wait to get on that level! will catch you online during the week probably. you will have more than enough time to catch up

      • Sgt. M

        You people and your online play. I need to get internet at home before i buy this game it seems. Now to find the cheapest best one

        • Francois Knoetze

          I got 4meg uncapped internet just for gaming and series download o.O

          for years I have been offline and then a voice whispered in my ear: NO MORE! Thus I climbed the mighty mountains of financial growth and got my terrible telkom line that is now connected to my PS4 and TV! MAUAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAH!!! cough… “sits down behind desk and strokes cat.”

          best and cheapest don’t really fall in the same category. afrihost is pretty good from what I heard

        • Jordan Tom

          Xfinity is cheap and u get 50mps free the first year

        • Macc Mosley

          No online no play

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Never listen to people complaining how a game is bad because it’s not like another game.

    • Brady miaau

      Yeah, cause my house is not as good as my car at taking me to the shops.

      • Zhalen Xiphia

        I can access amazon from my house. The shops come to me?

    • Well said. Oh heck…

    • Jordan Tom

      Yet it is lie another game so how is that true. Let’s Matchmaking. COD. Moves bunch of other games including the run crouch from far cry. The Chinese armor form Halo 4. Shall I go on.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Yes, please do. In fact, if you could illustrate all the building blocks to show how all games are related to Pong that would be pretty cool.

  • Admiral Chief Assassin

    I hate it, can’t get the PC crack to work

    😛

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      You need to download the day-one patch from a helpful & completely trustworthy random stranger on a torrent site. #legittruth

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

        You might be on to something there

    • haxyen

      Seven m0nths ago I l0st my j0b and after that I was f0rtunate enough to stumble upon a great website which literally saved me. I started w0rking for them 0nline and in a short time after I’ve started averaging 15k a month… The best thing was that cause I am not that computer savvy all I needed was some basic typing skills and internet access to start… This is where to start——

  • WarframedSquirrel

    What I think of Destiny? I think it’s missing from my game library.

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      XD

  • KingKappie

    Destiny is the most Awesome best game ever made

  • Admiral Chief Assassin
    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      But can you get a cute little Rince? Who’s a good boy? WHO’S A GOOD LITTLE BOY! (refresh)

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

        Dawwwwwwwwwwww, so cute. Better looking that Rince though :/

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          She’s adorable right? I didn’t really call her Rince, that would be cruel. Just another day or two & she’ll be big enough to go with daddy all over the solar system & help slaughter those silly Grineer, Corpus & Infested like a good girl… or as I like to call it, walkies!

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Filthy Grineerses

          • WarframedSquirrel

            so THAT’s why you’ve been playing more than usual.

      • The Adventures of JJ

        hahahahaha

      • Something missing from your childhood man… Like growing from child to man ????

        • Zhalen Xiphia

          How is the mentality of a grown man any different than a grown child?

  • OVGrounded new game+++

    Its HALO with always on DRM.
    A brainless FPS game with no narrative or skill required for the ADD candy crush generation that love paying for added extra episodic content at full retail so they can brag about their extra skills at school.

    Yawn… ZZZZZZzzzzzzzz

    Expect this Hype Train to fizzle away after a month like the Titan Fail and Watch Dog snore fest.

    At least Borderlands had Humour and loot drops.

    Destiny is just 3D Mole Hunt.

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      Nice to see you comment!

    • KingKappie

      Haters gonna Hate

      • Weanerdog

        He is just sad because he does not have internet.

        • OVGrounded new game+++

          Hell, even If I had the internet I would rather play Borderlands.

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        You have no idea how much I hate this crap.
        Its up there with the XBone 24hour online check in reveal.

        This game better fcking fail bad otherwise it will be the beginning of the end of the off-line single player game with large budgets.

        • Weanerdog

          Nice to have you back, did you enjoy your trip.

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            Cheers bud, what made it worse was the fact that The Last of Us was advertised everyday on British TV but my PS4 was in South Africa 🙁 Felt a little better after knowing it was sold out at all the local stores including tescos. It was selling for 38 pounds.
            But low and behold, Musica at Canal Walk know their shit and had multiple copies on the shelf 🙂 Even the dude behind the till got on his knee when he handed the game over to me and said it was the best gaming experience he has ever had lol.

        • Yeah cus your immense experience makes me want to listen to you???? how many hundreds of hours did we jam BL2 ONLINE?

    • Ryanza

      I agree.

    • Hammersteyn
      • OVGrounded new game+++

        I can die a happy gamer after playing a game Last month that finally knocked my GameCube version of Resident Evil 4 off the TOP SPOT.

        FINALLY 🙂 After 10 years. Thank you Naughty dog. What a masterpiece. Grounded mode is THE BOMB.

        • Hammersteyn

          Couldn’t agree more if I tried, it really is that good!

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            Sad that these games are so far and few between.

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        Talking about being back, I have been catching up, and am SICK about Lara Crofts reboot having the sequel as an exclusive. WTF?

        Imagine if KINDLE owned the rights to the second Harry Potter book and the only way to read it was if you bought a KINDDLE?

        Only this industry gets away with this shit.

        • Hammersteyn

          They did admit to it being a timed exclusive so we will get to play it.

          • Ryanza

            They never said timed exclusive. It’s a duration exclusive.

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            Like Mass Effect and Bioshock?

          • Ryanza

            Maybe like Mass Effect. But the whole announcement was fucked up so it’s more of a wait and see what happens.

          • Difference?

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            While the hardcore fans of the reboot who supported the company from other platforms get shafted on the 20th anniversary.
            They have dug their graves over at CD and Squarepants.

            Unless the RISE or FAIL of the Tomb Raider gets 8/10 and is half the price 2 years after release. Then it might pick up profit on the other systems.

            FAIL

          • Sadly SOMY has not confirmed that and have admited at present they are still unsure

    • The Adventures of JJ

      Holy crap dude. You’re alive!

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        I had to get back on-line during lunch at work just to warn all gamers not to be indoctrinated into Activisions marketing bullshit.

        DONT SUPPORT DRM. FUCK DESTINY.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          lol. You’re so compassionate & selfless!

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            VOTE OVG

        • Hammersteyn

          Well colour me fucked

    • Guild

      Never played Halo because I never had an Xbox or was interested in one and I own Borderlands but still haven’t loaded it. So I can’t compare like everyone else has.
      I’m not a fan of single player games because I prefer teaming up and having a laugh with mates online. I’m very happy with Destiny and really enjoying it.

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        Different strokes for different folks.
        Good for you. As long as you are having fun then thats all that matters.
        But I can see a mob of old school gamers like myself who grew up and learnt how to enjoy gaming by ourselves. Off line gaming that needed strong narrative and FREE reward systems, that are defensive against this new work model because if it becomes a success then we can kiss what we know good buy.

        In my opinion this game is like that Youtube hit FRIDAY, Memes memes memes in place of quality. New age brainwashing.

        • Kromas of City17

          #Forever SP … Unless I dayZ 😛

        • Guild

          I agree different strokes for different folks. I’m hoping Destiny doesn’t go the same way as Titan Fall for obvious reasons.

        • Sgt. M

          For me and my brothers it was about 2 player games. Need for Speed, Tekken and such. But majority of the games have become single player with an online option which takes away the whole playing games together vibe. But thats just me

          • OVGrounded new game+++

            Good old split screen on a tube TV. That was how it was done. I think Gears 2 was the last split screen game that I played. No internet required.

          • Hahaha wow. Now playing with two large monitors is worse than playing on a shitty low res tube tv. We’ve missed your logic!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You young people of today don’t know what real gaming is. Back in my day we used to sit on the ground in front of a black & white TV that weighed more than a Beetle & our controllers only had 2 buttons & we had to make our own sound effects because the game only had American sound effects that were dubbed out.

      • ToshZA

        Borderlands has 4 player co-op, and the game really does get better with more than just solo. Saying that, even the solo experience is great, so it’s worth a look.

        • Guild

          Just never found the time to load it up and play it. Plus my PS3 got stolen so still need to get a new so I can go back and play my backlog. I have a rather large pile of unplayed games. Far Cry 3, Last of Us, Max Payne 3, Batman games, Final Fantasy, Dues Ex, etc. Hoping to get there one day

          • ToshZA

            Well you have good taste it seems. Lots to look forward to in that list, so I hope you’re able to get a PS3 soon man.

          • Guild

            I’ll probably pick up one end of the year. Got other commitments that are more important. Plus my wife would question why she bought me a PS4 if I’m buying a PS3 now.

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            *Deus Ex

            😛

          • Guild

            😛 I’m leaving it this time.

        • He actually knows that and has spent hundreds of hours with me and two other mates. He’s going on about how you HAVE to have the internet just to play single player. I half agree but times change. If they didn’t we would have new games like Last of Is that he goes on about.

      • Sadly IVG has never played online alone and when he has at mine he has loved every god damn second if it. So I le sigh at his opinion ????

    • Dude. I’ve missed you.

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        Hugs 🙂

      • Don’t encourage him…

    • joey

      This games isnt on par with halo in any way. Halos gunplay along with ai and basicly everything else is far superior.

    • OVGrounded is a bitch

      OVGrounded – Why are you comparing Destiny to Borderlands? ‘At least Borderlands had Humour and loot drops’ – I don’t think Destiny was made to be like Borderlands that’s probably why it different? Also, there is loot drops… Stop acting as though you’re a professional games creator and you think you know what people like. Your example of why Destiny was bad is pretty much like me saying ‘ Call of duty is rubbish – at least on crash bandicoot there are enough boxes. ‘ two totally different games bitch.

      • OVGrounded new game+++

        sexist

  • nick

    i still love it. having built up two characters in the beta i am finding it a grind to do so again. i was expecting people to go “boring” because it will be to start off until you can go further than where you were last time you played

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    If you look at Metacritic right now it’s pretty evenly divided between the greens & reds, with very few yellows, would need a bit more time for a reliable indicator there.

    • The Adventures of JJ

      I only take the user reviews on Metacritic seriously. Way too many times the professional reviewers gave things high scores that ended up being terrible.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Those are the ones I looked at, there weren’t any actual game reviewers reviews there yet.

      • Kromas of City17

        That is why I love steam user reviews. You can see how many games they have and how many hours they played the game they are reviewing.

        • WarframedSquirrel

          Except for the ones that state “Killed a chicken, got pork. 10/10″… while funny at times, there’s just too many of them.

          • Kromas of City17

            That must have been a review of Rust. Also Rust is not that good. 😛

          • WarframedSquirrel

            Lol, I think it actually was for Rust… just stuck in my mind as a “WTF!?” moment.

          • Kromas of City17

            Best one for me was Goat Simulator.

            Used a ladder. Works better than DayZ. 11/10

      • FoxOneZA

        It must be awkward for a gaming site with Destiny backgrounds and banners all over the show to give Destiny a 6 or 7 out of 10.

        • Brady miaau

          But the staff here seem to care about their opinions over the adverts

        • ToshZA

          The adverts are for money. The reviews are for us.

  • Ryanza

    To me it looks like the same shit over and over again. Land on planet, kill the same types of enemies on every planet, let your ghost talk rubbish, let the ghost look at something while you shoot at the same type of enemies on every planet.
    It looks like you just repeat the same damn thing over and over. But some people just like shooting the same stuff over and over.

  • JuJu

    Loving every moment. Agreed Strike teams have been amazing fun but I’m also going to enjoy my single player time where I can absorb the finer details of the story better.

  • Hammersteyn

    Couldn’t play it, kept getting a centipede error 🙁

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      As long as it is not the human variant
      o_O

      • Hammersteyn

        Paying for a game and not being able to play, yeah, might as well be the human version

    • Brady miaau

      A what? And you were looking forward to this for a while now

      • Hammersteyn

        I was played it five minutes, got kicked out and couldn’t get back in.

        • Admiral Chief Assassin

          You played PS2 after that, didn’t you?

          • Hammersteyn

            I hit the internet looking for ways to resolve the issue, but I drew the line when they mentioned messing about with your router.

          • Brady miaau

            Not a huge stress. Typically port forwarding, but the trick is it seems to me that each router calls it something different.

            I am sure many of the people here (Admiral, Rince, for example) know a bit about that stuff too

          • Lol

        • Brady miaau

          Ah man, so they let you touch the promised land and then, after a small taste, they ripped it away.

          Ouch

          • Hammersteyn

            Gaming of the future

          • Guild

            Shit budd. That sucks. I got disconnected twice last night and had some bad lag but I blame MWEB. All my mates that are with MWEB were having issues. So I switched to my backup line and had no issues the rest of the night.

          • Hammersteyn

            Ugh, I’m also using Mweb

        • Brady miaau

          Now that you mention, I left iBurst last month because the same happened whenever I tried to play Star Wars online. Fast, fast, fast, 20 000 ms ping. Dead. Also about 5 minutes, then essentially rest of night, too slow.

      • Hammersteyn

        Cheers, I checked this morning and I could log in. Hopefully I still can when I get home.

        • Saw a few people struggle with that but Bungie was one up

          • Hammersteyn

            Worst was seeing everyone online and playing Destiny.

          • that must have suck, i couldnt play last night because the exchange server where i live is broken so my ping was over 400ms constantly and couldnt log in to psn

  • Daniel evans

    im going to get it soon and im hoping its not as bad as what people are making out. if they built it like an MMO then it explains the bland story. when i played FFXIV the story wasnt very good either, but the game picked up a bit at end game(then got boring fast tbh). im hoping its the same deal here, get to end game then start having fun.

  • Anon A Mouse

    Completely off topic, but am I the only one struggling to get into lazygamer today? I’ve had an error 533, to just nothing loading, to the site loading but the articles all over the place, looks like a picasso painting.

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      Yes, some server issues, Darryn tried to upload his home made selfies again

      • Anon A Mouse

        Ahh so that’s the reason that it shows me to be able to connect to the cloud in Amsterdam but not to the website then.

        • Admiral Chief Assassin

          Indeed, its not the volume of the selfies, but the quality, that broke the server

  • Morne Nell

    Best game ever, enjoy every moment. There is just something and when it bites you, you are hook. Love playing it on the big screen with the amazing sound. Also a good social game. The game just work people tend to forget it is the only game in many, many moons that did not crash the servers on day one, well done Bungie.
    It is better than Halo. What is irritating is the fact that this game is Data hungry, use about 200mb per hour. It is definitely better with a friend and I think a good way to introduce people to multiplayer concepts.

    • Anon A Mouse

      “Also a good social game”. Think I’ll pass thank you very much.

    • Kromas of City17

      So you never played The Last of Us, Mass Effect or The Witcher. I feel sad now.

      • Morne Nell

        Who said I did not, played every game that came out on the ps4 so far. The last of us was good but there is no replay ability. Kill zone was ok but not great. BF4 had nice single player missions but multi player I did not enjoy

        • Kromas of City17

          Ah so your official standing on best game ever is
          1. It must have MP and
          2. must be repayable.

          Not really my criteria but oh well I can still be sad about ME then cause it has everything on your list.

          • Morne Nell

            Eish dude to me it sounds that you are grumpy because the rest of the world is enjoying it and you are not part of it. I do believe that you can’t have an opinion on any game if you did not at least played it.
            Just because the game has elements that you might not enjoy is no reason to dish the game. I actually don’t play multiplayer much but enjoy it in this game there is a nice transition between multiplayer and single player that is enjoyable. Also Experience gained is shared between multi and single player campaigns.
            This game definitely has elements that is unique and has not been tested or tried before. It is not the same old same old multiplayer type game

          • ToshZA

            He was actually just suggesting other games for you to try. Mass Effect really is worth it. 1 – 3 can be replayed many times, with different game experiences.

          • Kromas of City17

            This.

          • Kromas of City17

            Not grumpy at all but from what I have heard is that the game is not that good and very repetitive. I am not judging but you saying it is the best game ever is a bit of a stretch for me this early on. Also while The Last of Us may not have re-playability it is still voted as the best game in the last few years.

            So to iterate what I have said.
            Don’t really care about Destiny but it will be a long while before I believe anyone saying it is the best game ever.

  • The Adventures of JJ

    Ambitious, but it doesn’t pique my interest at all

  • Metacritic people are a bunch of depressed lithium deprived asswipes. I don’t even think people from South Africa can complain so much about the ANC as these people make it sound like Destiny is worse than WW3.

    • L337J1MB0B

      …. or.. maybe your game really does suck

  • Dawid Eduard Roestorf

    I am loving the game. Truly is the best game I have played all year, and will be my top game for months to come

  • Destiny is fun, just wish there were more loot and gear, all the gear seem the same but with more damage but other wise, the game is good no doubt

    • Morne Nell

      It all change at level 20, the reward system only start at level 20

      • oh ok, will check when i get there then

        • Guild

          I bought the Ghost edition of Destiny. The book that comes with it, Arms and Armament, has a lot of different weapons in there. And some very cool and unique weapons. There is a lot of stuff still to unlock

          • ive been taking my time with the game, doing bounties mostly so when i get to 20 will be great then i guess, though i have no real problem with the game as it is fun doing patrol and random people help with the missions

  • Ir0nseraph

    The question should be what do you think of destiny, after you have played it for 10 hours or more ?, not what do you think of Destiny.
    This game really shines once you have played a bit and played a strike mission with friends.
    As always thou there will be many comments from people judging the book by it’s cover, I love this game it’s awesome.

  • Mielies the Magnificent

    I’m only on level 3 and have had some difficulty to stay connected. Centipede error. Which I am told by Bungie is setting up my router’s Forward ports. Not a tech genius so that kinda sucks. And I was really hoping the story to be a bit deeper. Not sure if it gets better, but at the moment its just view the map and do a quest. No dialogue or background…

    • Mielies the Magnificent

      Also, my PS4’s NAT type is 3. And according to Bungie in order to have a better online experience it must be Type 2 or open.

      • Jonah Cash

        Yip!! Same thing happened to me when I started to play Fifa online…
        I bought a new router that could put an IP in DMZ, and that fixed it very quickly. You log into your router through your PC or phone and do the port forwarding there or if your router can just put your PS4 in DMZ and you should get Type 2….

        • Mielies the Magnificent

          Thanks for tip. Does this still apply even if the connection is mobile broadband? Will give it a shot tonight.

          • Guild

            Yes it does, I setup my MTN LTE router with port forwarding to get round the Type 3 issue

          • Mielies the Magnificent

            Thanks so much!

        • Brady miaau

          Why put PS 4 in the DMZ? Hard code IP on PS4 (Using Router) and port forward should be sufficient?

          • Jonah Cash

            I don’t like port forwarding…. I am lazy like that 🙂
            Gave the PS4 static IP and put it in DMZ, runs like a dream!!

          • Hammersteyn

            Gave mine a static IP and it’s NAT 2. Still nothing. The hell is DMZ?

          • Jonah Cash

            Demilitarized zone…. It pushed traffic to the device you put it in without firewalls! So it basically makes you an easy target for hackers, but if you hack my PS4 you won’t get anything so I think I am safe.

            Could you play last night?

          • Hammersteyn

            Nope, I tried disabling the firewall on my router but it wont allow me.

          • Mielies the Magnificent

            Also got it to NAT type 2. Same issues. Seems only to occur during peak times (18:00 onwards) Tried this morning and was immediately logged on. Might be server side then?

  • DOA

    Enjoying it so far. Great game with some fun elements, hidden loot if you take the time to look for it. Quests are ok, for me its the overall gameplay that makes it fun to play.
    Anybody found the soccer ball in the tower? (seriously) Don’t know where it is found in the tower but myself and few others (somebody else found it) were kicking it around last night, pretty cool.
    Looking forward to hopefully joining with some Lazy Gamers for the harder stuff 🙂 on XB360. Bored of people saying its not good because it does not have Borderlands tongue n cheek yada yayda. Its not Borderlands, get over it (which is a great game in its own right). Its just the beginning, looking forward to playing it daily at this point.

  • Jonah Cash

    Seeing as I have been the one who has told the whole world that Destiny is THAT good and it will be huge I guess it is up to me to clarify some things…..
    Firstly I have noticed that over the last 2 months or so that more and more random haters have emerged!! As with all things in life, if it is good and maybe too good you will find people who hates it because it is THAT good… Or it is people who need to go buy a f*&#$ng dog to get attention and not look for it on the net!! I saw the same thing happen last night with Apple, their products aren’t as shit as people on the net would like you to believe!! I own a few apple products, and the way they work together is just bloody awesome!! So hate it if you want, but it wouldn’t sell so well if it didn’t work not even with all the hype in the world!!
    Back to Destiny. Of course there will be people who don’t like it, there are a lot of things out there that people like that I think is complete and utter crap!! But that is the good thing about opinions, everyone has one and it won’t always fit with yours but so be it… It is a good thing we differ, otherwise life would be boring!!
    Secondly the game is bloody masterpiece in every sense of the word!! The gameplay is solid, the graphics is very good if not great!! And what is this about repetitiveness? So you had to scan shit with your ghost and protect it more than 2 times… WOW, please no not that!!! Come on, so what!! All games have repetitive missions… ALL of them!!! You will be done with the story mission in a week or two’s time and then you will come back to shoot people in the face in the PvP!! If you don’t play at least 50 hours on this then you bought the wrong game, and if you bought this game and stopped playing after 50 hours it will still be 35 hours more than most single player games you played over the last few years!!
    The game is great, but only if you want to play online with yourself, your friends or random people!! This is an online game, it says so on the package!!
    Also I hate people, people are idiots and it makes me sad!!
    Jonah out…………………………

    • Guild

      I agree budd. I think the game is awesome and I can’t get enough. Looking forward to jumping on tonight. For me the replay value is great, single player and PVP. I probably did the Devils Lair strike mission over 10 times during the Beta and I’m keen to do it tonight again.

      • Jonah Cash

        I went to the Devil Walker alone and killed it just because I could….. *Puts on shades and walks into sunset….

        • Guild

          Nice budd. Exploration mode?

          • Jonah Cash

            Yip, took a wrong turn and ran into the bastard!! I was level 12 and I decided lets see how you like it when I also have big guns…. Took me 20 minutes but I got him!! He dropped absolutely nothing, not even a single bloody thing!!! Hahahahahaha

          • Guild

            Nice. Awesome feeling taking out a big guy by yourself. And sneaky bugger for not dropping anything. I took him on with mates in the exploration mode during the beta was fun and he also didn’t drop anything

    • L337J1MB0B

      “But that is the good thing about opinions, everyone has one and it won’t always fit with yours but so be it”…. I’m finding it hard to reconcile this statement and the rest of you rant at people who’s opinion happens to be that Destiny isn’t hot shit.

      • Jonah Cash

        Hahahaha!! The difference with what I said in my rant and that sentence is I really don’t give a shit what your opinion is!! I am leaving you to have yours, but don’t just try and stir the pot to get attention!! The 0/10 reviews is obvious idiots or do you really think anything should get 0/10?
        Have your opinion, if it isn’t obvious flamebait I won’t even reply 🙂

  • 1whiteguy

    Played it for about 10 hours on day one alone…..very fun game. Will be replacing my current ‘Game FOR 1 YEAR’ Battlefield 4.

    Got to max level in BF4 (lvl 130) so for the next year I’ll play this game for at least 200 hours.

    • Guild

      I packed away my BF4 and COD Ghosts. Done with them. This is my new game to pour time into

      • 1whiteguy

        Don’t get me wrong I’ll play others games as they come out (looking at you GTA5 on PC!) but Destiny will be my new home.

        • Guild

          Same. I’m keen on evolve, shadows of mordor, dying light and DA. So in the meantime everything is Destiny

          • 1whiteguy

            I was in the Evolve alpha….I’ll pick that up when it hits $20-30. Looking forward to Dragons Age and Assassin Creed

          I’m also with MWEB. Got a 4MB uncapped package bought a Netgear router. I’ve had no issues with centipede errors as of yet. I do occasionally get put back into orbit during a mission. It’s happened 4 times over the 2 nights of gaming.
          I’m sorry you are having so many issues. Maybe you should look at a new router if you can’t find any fault with the MWEB line. But I have had issues with MWEB before

      I’ve spent just under 200 hours in Terraria in the last 3 weeks. One year my ass. 😀

      Edit: Correction – 209 hours. Daym.

      • 1whiteguy

        Well I have a good job, great kid, and a happy marriage. I’m not a basement dweller.

        • ToshZA

          Yeah, I work from home, earn a great income, have a wonderful child and loving partner too. Insomnia isn’t the same as being a basement dweller. Now fuck off and go judge somebody else. Your wife maybe?

          • 1whiteguy

            I’ll keep judging you….I sleep fine at night. You should see a doctor about that sleep issue. There is 504 hours in 3 weeks….if you spent 200 hours playing a game then you are in need of some help ASAP!

          • Brady miaau

            Yeah, while I may not put that amount of time into games, I get the possibility of being able to do that, if I prioritise it right. I would get bored doing the same thing for an extended period like that, but I get it. I spend a lot of time on games and books, by myself. While still spending quality time with wife and kid. I sleep a lot less than they do, plain and simple.

  • Francois Knoetze

    It is nuts. experienced no lag and there are so many people playing! the world feels alive and after a days work there was nothing better than finally going home, cracking open a beer, making a roasted chicken mayo and pesto sarmie, slap on my Gold headset, remove pants (bec no epic journey should ever be handled with pants) and get lost in the world of Destiny.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Never mention nuts & no pants at the same time 😉

  • HisDivineOrder

    Enter Titanfall 2.0.

    The Hype Train is really taking a beating this year, what with Watch Dogs, Titanfall, and now Destiny all showing up at the station being duds. It’s interesting, but it is happening because these games are screaming how next gen they are while being made for 360 and PS3, too. Hell, in Titanfall’s case, the 360 version had virtually no differences.

    What we need is a game truly built from the ground up for next gen without concern for the limitations of the ancient 360 or PS3. Looks like we might need either Assassin’s Creed Unity or Batman Arkham Knight to do that for us. Unfortunately, AK is more than six months away.

    Hm. Titanfall had that easy, “Titanfail” name to describe the disappointment and dismay. What will Destiny’s “fail” name be, though? Dudstiny? Dullstiny? Failstiny? Dustiny? Hm.

    Only history can decide.

    • Assassins Creed is bleh. Batman Arkham Knight will be spectacular!

  • L337J1MB0B

    What do I think of Destiny? Don’t know as it’s not my kind of game. But I’m hearing a lot of “I’m enjoying it” from people who are playing it, which sounds like quite a mediocre impression.

  • MP join is a bit of a issue , waiting and waiting before it tell my fireteam that it took too long

  • bungie fuck u

    I wish I could play the Goddamn game I bought it and I get booted off every time I try and play a mission. Its fucking bullshit they better give me some free DLCS or something.

  • joey

    The game is a huge let down. It tries to be to many things and fails at them all. Pvp is so boring and generic and the rest of the game isnt any better. This is a skid mark on bungees resume

    • Jordan Tom

      Preach it brother. F Ada u CoD fans

  • Shawnlogan

    Level 9 and like everyone says IT IS repetitive and not only the gameplay but the places as well. I was expecting a lot more out of this game and so was the majority of my friends but I guess it’s ok I can just add to the collection of gay games that I’ve had since the ps1 😀

  • AJ

    Do destiny graphics change based on the internet connection that you have?

  • Blue

    I am so confused to why there is bad reviews of this game!? It’s absolutely brilliant, it’s call of duty speed first person shooting with Halo scenery, fun exciting alien waves, missions, bosses & random adventures you can create yourself. MMORPG which changes to third person back at the tower and you can interact with online players. You choose a planet, fly there – Roam the planet, find and collect rare materials – upgrade armour become strong – PVP and complete missions with friends or random people you see online. If you seriously think this game is bad then your clearly not happy with anything in life – enjoy it fools.

    • Jordan Tom

      Inzacly ur talking about BUNGIE here not some overly advertised to be good game for little children.

    • “It’s absolutely brilliant, it’s call of duty” That right there is a problem. You enjoy COD so you lost all credibility there.

  • Jordan Tom

    If ur a bungie halo fan I’m sorry this game is not for you. Bungie has ruinedbits reputation with this game. The campain is alright but only 3 members at a time and hard to find a team if u have no friends O and worst of all the copied moves from other games but made them crappy. The cotomizations for how ur player look is bad theres not very many options. The armor Japanese style just like Hao 4 really fun looking.

    Now about the matchmaking I’m really disappointed with Bungie for this. After how bad Halo 4 was, I know that wasnt bungie I was so looking forward to a great matchmaking, but what did bungie do they made it Cod style wtf Bungie how stupid can u guys be. Just a terrible terrible matchmaking.

    And my final thoughts on the game NO FORGE their you go.

    • Jordan Tom

      O yeah invisible walls what happens to ur explore the map concept

  • J1bber

    Destiny is ok, but its like Borderlands with all the fun sucked out of it… Firstly… yes, apparently there is a lot of loot to be had in Destiny with a lot of customizations… and admittedly I’m only lvl 10 right now… but I don’t seem to come across lots of loot that often… only some loot chests once in a while and it seems all items are bought, but you get currency rarely so pretty much you’re stuck with the same gear for a while… Even when you get more gear, its usually just a lvl increase from the same thing you just had… meh… Borderlands is a loot-topia… If you don’t like you’re gun, pick up another one and keep going… you can go through lots of combinations of guns and armor and gear just in a single firefight… its awesome… Also the destiny skill tree seems to spoon feed you, its not like Borderlands were you can build out different classes within the same tree… also, can you reset and try different skills? Anyway.. in Destiny the skill tree seems to be just a simple reward for reaching the next level. In Borderlands the skill tree is almost like a fingerprint. It lets you decide how you want to fight and everyone seems to have their own little tweaks to the skill tree, so its not a one size fits all… Lastly… the look and feel of Destiny is very generic, very vanilla . The look of Pandora was diverse, and there was some character to it… It was almost a character in the game itself… And don’t get me started on the characters in Borderlands, Moxxi, Jack… Butt-stallion… As far as I know there is no “face” to destiny unless you count that pale version of a clap-trap they call Peter Dinklage… err Ghost… and wtf is up with dead ghosts? To sum it up… The multi-player is seems very Halo, the scenery seems very Halo, the gameplay seems very Halo… but you’ll be able to add a mod to your guns once in a while, just try to stay awake until that happens.

    • Jordan Tom

      For being built by Bungie this game is a complete fail. Give a month everyone will be bored of it.

  • Zach

    i just beat the solo as far as i can tell and the ending really fucking sucks there isnt even a cut scene they just kinda go cool u won here’s some cap item bye. like wtf. they have this huge boss fight i take 45 mins doing for that? what shit.

    • zach

      i meant story nto solo

    • Sh0werGel

      You know there actually is a cut scene at the end
      But I will give shit to one thing you are not getting cap items after the last bossbettle

  • fer

    After just recently reaching 20, im angry. Why? B/c once again iv been fooled and played by a greedy money hording ,lieing , leech of a company. Dystiny has been talked up and strait forward lies have been said. The hype wasnt even close to how endgame content really is. Enjoy lvling up ur measly 20 short lvls, bc after that the game dies and becomes boring . If they told me i get 20 lvls of story rich fps fun,fine ; but they didnt. Words out of there mouth ” GAME STARTS AT 20″ was a deliberate lie. It was in fact there tricky way of hiding its greatest flaw. Ty Xbox , Bungie and other affiliated comanys, i no longer am bound to buy ur crap , overhyped games, bc what little hope i had for the truth to be said and a equal exchange of goods and currency to take place has been abolished. Enjoy ur throne of lies ,and the cash money u have duped players and good ppl out of. Greed consumes and destroys everything. Dont fall pray for them with this game.

  • Aaron

    Okay, honest review (coming from a level 22)…

    The good:

    -Decent battle systems. Some of the main boss battles are insane (especially when you start doing the higher level strikes).
    – It looks pretty.
    – That’s it.

    The bad:

    – Completely broken class system. No real difference between the classes minus a special attack and a few extras. Literally nothing else separates them.
    – Completely repetitive game play.
    – A generic, if not laughable, town in which you claim/buy/transact everything.
    – All three planets (and moon) are pretty much nothing but barren wastelands with little or no reason to explore. I mean that, no reason: yes, there are chests, that give you a small amount of money and maybe a worthless loot item.

    The Ugly:

    – Complete and utter lack of any useful loot. Also, there is no loot above level 18, except for legendary. Anyone who calls this game a loot game really, truly doesn’t know what that is. Borderlands? Loot. Diablo? Loot. This? Pathetic, at best. What’s worse? If you replay the missions, you get loot when the mission ends. If you select a higher difficulty (like 20, in my case) you get jack when it ends. I mean no loot rolls at all (or at least I have never gotten one). Add that on to the fact that most people (like my friends) get stuck on the two item drift: where you end a level with 5 helmets (that you got from enemies)and nothing else. Seriously, why would I spend 45 minutes killing a huge boss for absolutely nothing?
    – Factions that are so time consuming and boring, for very very very little reward, that it literally takes you weeks just to get one piece of equipment. It’s completely stupid that you can’t even see how high you are in a faction without actually talking to a faction member (seriously, they couldn’t have added this in the pause menu?). A cap of 100 faction points a day, plus it takes thousands of recognition points to level up, yet hit 3rd level to actually buy anything. Anyone who said “the end game is where it’s at” is delusional. There is no end game except constantly grinding the same 3 or 4 strikes in hopes of actually getting a single piece of equipment, while hopefully getting one piece of faction equipment every three days. Unfortunately, you probably won’t.
    – Remember before when I said barren wasteland? I meant that not only as the low amount of enemies and things to encounter, but also that there are maybe one or two people in the world with you, even in patrol. The most I have ever seen is 10 during an instance. That’s it. Well, in town, maybe 10 at a time, too, which doesn’t matter because you can’t talk to anyone. The lack of communication available between the players is pathetic.
    – The story is literally forgettable, but not as forgettable as the NPCs. Completely lifeless.

    Well, that’s it. Like it or not, this game has some HUGE flaws. Even though I don’t think Bungie or Activision specifically said this was a MMO or RPG, but it is neither. This is a lackluster FPS with barely anything to hold on to after 20 or so hours of play.

    • John Richardson

      Yep I agree with most if not all of that.
      Barren, boring and a grind. My mate won’t shut up about it. By the time he has some “really cool” gear, the rest of us will be over this game and onto something else – 10 year plan? What a joke.
      It’s just too grindy for what you get, but without a reward I can’t see how the game can last.
      People are comparing this to Halo FireFight but I disagree. I used to play that on my own and with mates simply because it was fun – not to get anything. Destiny is just not like that I reckon.
      It doesn’t worry me though because there are plenty of games to come when this one just dies – except for my mate and all the other dudes that just like mindless rinse and repeat on boring activities.
      I need it to be fun. Without rewards, this game is not fun.

  • Zero

    Not so great, very bland and liner story, with the usual get mission, go here, kill/fend off these, done. The gear alone is not worth having as a defence stat seems to be just a number, and weapons don’t seem to be any more significant from the last. Played for a number of hours now and I will admit the first few hours were fun, now after covering the ghost for the 6th time in a row fending off Fallen, I’m starting to think Bungie stepped out of there comfort zone, and fell hard on this one. Have played worse, but this does come close, considering $99.95 au, pretty disappointing game.

  • Macc Mosley

    If you like playing an entire game of Firefight/horde you’ll love it cause that’s all the campaign is so repetitive it’s sad. I don’t know if their doing this for a reason or what but from what I can tell the entire campaign mode is all about ranking up to play online modes,super bland. But it’s fun I can say I’ve played the hell out of it ,Co-op games are my favorite so I’m having fun. I just think they coulda done so much more with the story it’s like a 5 year old wrote it.

  • John

    Basically, they copied Mass Effect (Awesome game) and turned it into a story-less FPS.

  • I want to love it.

    I was about 4 hours into Destiny when I started to feel guilty. Maybe its just me? Maybe I’m slowly getting over games? Am I being to harsh on it? those are a few of the questions I kept asking myself while playing. I feel a lot better seeing other gamers are sharing the same feelings about Destiny. Over-hyped and over-marketed is an understatement when it comes to Destiny, of course these two publishers could make toilet paper look epic and unbelievable. Even more so when you hear how much the budget was. There marketing team certainly knows how to grab your attention. At the point of writing this I am not enjoying Destiny. As Geoffrey mentioned above, the repetition is very disappointing. I also feel that I’m spending my campaign looking after my ghost doing what he does while I fight off insane hordes of enemy’s. The AI are very predictable. They pop in and out of the same cover asking for a round to the head and stay at the perfect distance to not over whelm you. Unless you are baby sitting your ghost, I find the enemy never really come for you. These so called “open worlds to explore” feel incredibly empty, I have spent hours looking around these maps and feel like there is no point to it. I did expect there to be hidden caves or alien ruins with great weapons and armor to fight for. Even one Npc to give me a side quest or story would of been interesting? And as for the multiplayer element and the social environment they promised I really feel let down. Unless you have a couple of friends online at the same time you spend must of the game by yourself. And patience help you if those friends are at a higher level then you, that’s when it gets really sad, as you have put two clips in to your first enemy to take him down and your friend has killed the boss and the rest with a few shots. I could go on forever but there is a point where I need to stop. It’s not a bad game, but I can’t stop feeling guilty about the cash I could of saved for something else instead of buying Destiny. Even though I’m about to play it once I stop here.

  • I Love You.

    I really need to stop giving 2 fucks what other people think about this, game, everyone on the internet is a tosser who hates shit for no reason. Fuck them.
    Looking at these comments, my faith in humanity is restored.

  • Hobotheclown92

    I love the game but to be honest and this isn’t just a problem I am having……I have never played a game with so many issues, getting disconnected every two minutes makes me dislike this game more than I like it.

  • Ben Shaw

    Boring is an understatement, anyone able to truly enjoy this game beyond the story and actually claim to not notice the repetition and boring nature is just lying. I would compare this to diablo 3 vanilla release, lets hope it doesn’t take as long to get it right though.

  • My Name is mud

    Its good for what it is. But damn is sooo freaking boring to playing. Beat the campaign took my time doing the side stuff been playing mp for a while also. I have no ambition to start a new character or to play mp anymore.

  • bob williams

    Just purchased Destiny?….Game errors just trying to access the
    game???…Xbox Live disconnect error messages?….Destiny game server access
    problems?….What!??….a game that relies on your ability to get to their
    database systems in outer space some place just to play it?..You mean
    you can’t play it without connecting to some place away from home?..too
    many users?….”the airplane seats have just been over sold”….its not
    you….the database manager for Bungie can’t be too different from any
    other database manager….too many users?…..just block or kick users
    off…..until you get enough capacity that is to entertain all…Brand
    new?…create a program…recognizes the new folks….wouldn’t want to upset a
    brand, brand new customer….play a little awhile….then, block or kick
    off old users until you get capacity. Old user? …2, 3 hours…maybe a day
    if your lucky of game play…then , blocked or get kicked off. To be or
    not to be….patience or refund? That is the question…..HHHhhhhhhmmmm?????
    All this….I have to fix my computer, my server, my internet service to
    run a game???? Really??? Are you kidding????? And you bought a $60 game
    disc from the local store…or worse…you bought the game
    online….waited…oh an hour or so…after passing out your credit card
    billing information….for the game to download…..but…can’t play the game
    because of someone in outer space? Again, to be or not to be….patience
    or refund? That is the question. Microsoft must be proud of it’s name
    and its association to Bungie……right about now. Remember…….the question.

  • Put like 24 hours into the game, beat the story, got to Lv 24, but I’m so bored of it…it’s the same damn missions over and over and over again. It’s not a bad game, but it’s lacking content. It feels like an incomplete game. There is like what? 10 species of aliens in this game in the whole “Universe”? It’s just a big let down. Also the multiplayer is a broken mess and not fun in the slightest.

  • Psum Wahn

    Really not what it promised to be.

  • Dc9789

    great game seeing as i spent $150 to get the f**kn thing and have spent the last 4 hours trying to play it but keep getting bullshit error messages and still cannot game. absolute waste of time and money will be returning it 2morrow

  • Guest

    It’s boring…the story is so shallow that it can’t take away from the obvious fact I’m in an MMO doing repetitive grind quests over and over.

    People are in denial. Especially those that bought the expensive pre-orders.
