So I am usually out of the loop on new games. Refund came in and after getting the wedding bands we go into Gamestop and I hear about Destiny. Anyone think this will be worth a shot? I preordered as my girl likes fps and I am starting to get back into them myself.

Not even looking at this right now. The only Bungie game I played was Halo at Xbox launch. Activision announced today that it is not being released this year. Push it out of your head, you probably have at least 12 months of games between now and then.

Current release day is new years day. But yeah shame on me for even thinking of a game or anything that is so far from release date.

Halo was great, the rest were minor improvments and, to me, not worth buying or playing often. Activision being part of this I have higher hopes of a better game.

In Gamestop lingo, a 12/31/xxxx release date means "We have no freaking clue".

Fully aware of that. Not entirely sure why people are so set on knit nit picking things. So the game doesn't have a solid release date, hasn't stopped people from discussing what has been put out. The release date is not really known, again never stopped people from talking about the game.

Destiny aims to be a living, breathing world. You can hop from post-apocalyptic Chicago to Mars and back again and hang out in the various world hubs in between fighting against or alongside other players. They’re not using the word “MMO” or its variant, “MMOFPS,” but the terms “social” and “questing” are being thrown around enough so that the descriptors don’t seem entirely inaccurate.


Yeah we all heard the big claims and innovations for Halo that were put in slowly in its sequals. Personally hoping they can pull it off.

Actually, the way I read the description of the game.... it sounds kind of boring.

It may be pretty, but if I want pretty I have a whole catalog of FF games.

Maybe we'll get more information that will change my mind as release approaches.

It's in the back of my mind, but I won't be getting it at release. Right now, the only game I'm looking forward to enough to pay full price for is The Last of Us.

The basic description says its basically a Borderlands MMO. Not really on my pull list, but we'll see.

No, it's like Halo drugged Borderlands and then date-raped it. And Borderlands is Pro-Life.

No, it's like Halo drugged Borderlands and then date-raped it. But, Halo didn't leave marks and Borderlands' body didn't automatically shut it down so it wasn't a legitimate rape.

So I guess now we have a slightly better estimate of its release date?

Not really. They didn't actually say it would be a launch title, just that it's coming to PS3 and PS4.
