Downloading the Destiny alpha. Hopefully I'll be able to find some time to play it.
I've been watching some streamers and it looks a lot like Halo to me. So if you liked Halo, you'll like this.
Yup. Played the first story mission and a bit of the PvP Multiplayer (control points). Very fun, but it's basically a reskinned Halo game. Not that I'm complaining; I love Halo. Some people are going to be disappointed. Bungie's whole thing with leaving MS was that they wanted to move away from Halo. This is a departure from Halo in the sense that you make your own character so you're a bit more involved in the story, whereas Halo is pretty much stuck with Master Chief. Anyway, I'll keep my preorder (I had preordered on Amazon to get Beta access since Amazon doesn't charge you 'til it ships). I will enjoy the game.
I played as a Titan class, which is basically Master Chief. I'll have to check out the other two classes before the end of the Alpha.
