@  DBMgamer : (28 July 2014 - 03:42 PM) When Activisions marketing Onslaught of Destiny Begins I expect to see a Destiny Premium service that has all DLC's, sort of how Franchise titles work these days.  The full game rumor is 32 story missions (complete with what wasn't shown in Beta so sh*t makes sense), 23 strike missions, 11 pvp maps (Playstion), the one Raid map (the Vault of Glass on Venus), and 5 explorable areas (we have been on 2)
@  Dbl Incertion : (28 July 2014 - 01:10 PM) Just gonna put faith in Bungie. I know they can pull off a decent game and great story. But all their marketing seems to indicate "on going story" i/e we will keep putting out new DLC content hopefully that doesn't mean the $60 vanilla game is a tiny piece of their DLC MMO puzzle.
@  Dbl Incertion : (28 July 2014 - 01:08 PM) Frankly they said something like the beta is 10% of the game and each planet has 1 general area to explore of which weve seen earth and the moon. (More to come with DLC) Im hoping im not lv 20 maxed out and bored 1 week in. Was Suprised we dont fly our own ships around in space and land ala Mass effect style - just buy a ship for cosmetics click a and watch it zoom around.
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (28 July 2014 - 11:18 AM) To be clear, I am not criticizing your point of view, merely stating that you are not alone in your thought. In your shoes I would also hope I were wrong considering how much this game has been hyped. I remember how much BF4 was hyped and how many egregious errors EA made from the outset. I hope Bungie is a little smarter.
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (28 July 2014 - 11:17 AM) @twentyONE, I see a lot of people online echoing your sentiments and still others saying worse things. I for one am super excited about the game because of the cooperative element of it. I'm still not super sold on the Crucible, but with more experience I think I'll come to enjoy it.
@  Dbl Incertion : (27 July 2014 - 04:22 PM) Sadly one I've been trying not to feel that way. But after a weekend of pvp and maxing all the classes all of my crew feels hmmmm meh about it. Still buying but not ground breaking experience just get. The story seems great maybe halo worthy
@  twentyONE : (27 July 2014 - 12:49 PM) Having said that, I've tempered expectations greatly. Enjoyed the beta but I can't help but feel very underwhelmed and disappointed overall. I'm very 'meh' on the weapons and maps in PvP.  Pretty 'meh' on the PvE as well and feel its going to be very repetitive/tedious. Hopefully I will feel different at launch ...
@  twentyONE : (26 July 2014 - 06:06 PM) That moon mission is freakin SWEET!
@  Dbl Incertion : (26 July 2014 - 05:19 PM) No iron banner team gameplay for you!
@  Dbl Incertion : (26 July 2014 - 05:19 PM) Not surprisingly Xbox one friends list is crashed immediately following 5pm eastern 2pm pacific I wonder what happened at that time.......
@  TheBMT : (26 July 2014 - 01:07 PM) Im probably getting the game as well.  Tho just for the 360
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 July 2014 - 10:23 PM) Also - f**king china https://gma.yahoo.co...topstories.html
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 July 2014 - 10:23 PM) BMT I'm on it a lot if you want to hang - certainly getting the game too
@  TheBMT : (25 July 2014 - 09:19 PM) Sooooo Ive been loving Destiny, even tho most of my experience has been solo.  People on the same journey as I am on missions, just is neat lol.
@  DBMgamer : (25 July 2014 - 05:30 PM) Tomorow Bungie is going to open up the Moon for 2 hours and here is the Beta test banner that you get to carry into the full game: https://lh6.googleus...apture_Beta.JPG  Just get some rounds in after 2pm PDT and its yours!
@  twentyONE : (25 July 2014 - 11:10 AM) Crucible + Music Unlimited filthy Trance custom playlist = WIN!
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 July 2014 - 07:12 AM) Yea, I've turned my KD up to about 2.0 switching to auto rifle and fusion rifle sight than. I just avoid long lines and do ok.
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (24 July 2014 - 08:24 PM) Something I have learned: it is very useful to keep at least one weapon handy for ranged combat. Make sure you have at least one of the following: scout rifle, sniper rifle, rocket launcher. I love running my Titan with auto rifle, shotgun and machine gun, but against foes I want to keep at a distance I find myself wanting.
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 05:39 PM) fyi, Destiny's Beta is open to download, no codes required, this will be Bungies real stress test
@  Holmboy : (24 July 2014 - 01:32 PM) Anyone with an Android phone, tablet or gaming device like Ouya or SHIELD needs to pick this up. Classic! - http://ow.ly/zykHr
@  Holmboy : (24 July 2014 - 01:14 PM) The Iron Banner for Destiny returns again Friday and Saturday with some earlier battles added for Europeans: http://www.bungie.ne.../News?aid=11959
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 08:15 AM) and sadly I would like to point out that Destiny is in Beta and has Clan Pages *cough cough BF4*
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 08:02 AM) once the full game launches it seems as a clan you can earn rewards (don't know what that would be) and our BS logo should pop up
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 07:59 AM) @Josh, there is a Enable Clan button for each platform but no option to pull group members into clan members so you should have an option to get in the BS clan now for both Playstion members and Xbox members
@  Dbl Incertion : (24 July 2014 - 07:17 AM) Gonna research further saw some things about impact and improving that stat that gives advantage over range
@  Dbl Incertion : (24 July 2014 - 07:16 AM) Nah these are snipes or shottys they are like pulse rifles and auto rifles one burst dead. While I spam and connect with half my shots.
@  Chilli2627 : (24 July 2014 - 06:51 AM) *unless it's Iron Banner
@  Chilli2627 : (24 July 2014 - 06:51 AM) Snipers will drop you in 1 shot, so will shotguns if you let them get close enough.  It doesn't matter what weapon or gear people use in the crucible,  All damage there is the same, there is no advantage for anyone
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 09:10 PM) Dunno what I'm missing were all lv 8 with pretty decent weapons and gear but get like one shot by things in crucible left and right
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 07:10 PM) Ashame only 3 friends can play I have 5 of us that all play Biffle together
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 05:48 PM) I think we can creat alliances with our clans might do that
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (23 July 2014 - 05:28 PM) To be clear, in Destiny groups and clans seem to be 2 different things. I think we have a group for Battlestrats, but no clan, unless one has been created in the past few days.
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 05:00 PM) well Dbl we have a Destiny BattleStrats Clan if you like
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 04:57 PM) Made an Xbox One clan for destiny named Spider Monkeys for some friends and I if anyone else wants to join up that'd be cool
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 04:42 PM) Since the group focus should be to get the Xboxers caught up I put up 2 different location vids from the Alpha and yes nothing has moved, One will get you a Deactivated ghost (Hive Knight), the other gets you a random chest in his Lair (Ogre)
@  Myelencephalous : (23 July 2014 - 02:32 PM) :Crying:
@  dukebdfan980 : (23 July 2014 - 02:05 PM) Its not an accuracy issue, the lack of ammo becomes a problem when you are fighting a tough opponent like a fallen that takes a lot to go down but doesn't drop ammo as you go.  Even with 3 people fighting a fallen everybody is almost completely out of ammo by the time it goes down.
@  cbaker96 : (23 July 2014 - 01:56 PM) I will be on tonight hoping to level up my three people and do some exploring!
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 01:11 PM) And I am back, So I'll be up and running soon!
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 01:10 PM) I hope to see our Xbox Brethren chime in on their thoughts on Destiny in this shoutbox
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (23 July 2014 - 12:02 PM) Jeremy, I use the sniper rifle to engage a tough enemy such as a Captain or Wizard and do massive damage quickly before he can do too much damage. Your accuracy will improve with time and 14 bullets will be enough to be effective, especially if you aim for the head.
@  Myelencephalous : (23 July 2014 - 11:11 AM) the semi-auto sniper rifle is all i've used so far.  works great, but does run out of ammo a but quick.  however, it forces you to use all available resources, so i find it to be fun
@  Holmboy : (23 July 2014 - 10:59 AM) @baker - They're there just for show, they make your player nameplate look pretty. @duke -Haven't been using the Sniper Rifle in Destiny, but I get enough ammo for the Machine Gun.
@  dukebdfan980 : (23 July 2014 - 10:26 AM) Does anybody else feel like there needs to be a higher capacity to carry special ammo. 14 bullets for the sniper rifle isn't a lot against one of the fallen
@  cbaker96 : (23 July 2014 - 07:57 AM) Okay, what is the difference in emblems in Destiny for each class and what do they do?
@  Myelencephalous : (23 July 2014 - 06:58 AM) Destiny Beta was up and running as of late evening yesterday.  A small update file, and you're ready to rock and roll.
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 06:55 AM) http://news.xbox.com...izon-2-car-list
@  dukebdfan980 : (22 July 2014 - 05:42 PM) the Beta is back up for us too PS4 guys
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 July 2014 - 05:27 PM) Ohhhhh snap sticks finally the beta for destiny Xbox one is live there goes my week
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 July 2014 - 03:02 PM) I am going to go out on a limb and say EA knows Destiny will OWN through the holidays and hardline would be refreshing next year vs. this year considering there is still 1 more DLC for BF4
@  Holmboy : (22 July 2014 - 02:59 PM) Battlefield: Hardline just got postponed to 2015: http://ow.ly/zsZf9
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 July 2014 - 02:59 PM) https://movies.yahoo...-130001942.html
@  Myelencephalous : (22 July 2014 - 10:49 AM) i thought everything looked really solid and smooth.  i'm no expert, but i wouldn't have been able to tell whether it was 30 or 60
@  Holmboy : (22 July 2014 - 10:24 AM) It'll be a lot of fun getting Destiny back tomorrow, but after playing the Alpha and now this I really just want the full game so I can explore new locations and get past Level 8 finally...
@  Holmboy : (22 July 2014 - 10:21 AM) Framerate dips are the worst so a consistant 30fps is ok with me, but they need to really look into going 60fps once the engine gets optimized for Destiny 2 possibly.
@  cbaker96 : (22 July 2014 - 10:20 AM) Im starting to shake...I need destiny back! I had no issues with the 30fps, I saw LevelCap was complaining about it...
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (22 July 2014 - 07:11 AM) I see people are complaining about Destiny being only 30fps. Personally I think Destiny at 30fps plays much smoother than BF4 at 60fps. I just hope reviewers don't use 30fps as an excuse to give the game a lesser rating.
@  dukebdfan980 : (22 July 2014 - 06:50 AM) Day 2 without Destiny, how you guys holding up?
@  Sylnt1 : (21 July 2014 - 04:01 PM) been too long site looks way different!
@  Sylnt1 : (21 July 2014 - 04:00 PM) Hello!
@  Holmboy : (21 July 2014 - 02:10 PM) What I'm really excited for is the return of one of my all-time favorite video game characters Abe from Abe's Oddysee to the HD-remake New 'n' Tasty. It's cross-buy and releases for PS4, PS3 & Vita tomorrow!
@  Holmboy : (21 July 2014 - 02:05 PM) Great fun with Destiny this past weekend. That "noob" Silent Obsidian stuck out his head for a bit and I managed to finish the Strike mission in crazy fashion with the help of Michrule and DiGiovanni. Boy did I love that near-death ammo perk!
@  dukebdfan980 : (21 July 2014 - 01:28 PM) Same here Baker, I got on the other night and though I would explore for a few minutes.  Next thing I know 2 hours has gone by
@  Saansilt : (21 July 2014 - 12:20 PM) So what'd I miss?
@  Myelencephalous : (21 July 2014 - 11:33 AM) I also have some extra codes if anyone's been left off the wagon
@  cbaker96 : (21 July 2014 - 11:05 AM) Seriously, I am like a drug addict...give me my beta back now man!  Puff Puff Give!
@  Myelencephalous : (21 July 2014 - 09:06 AM) finally got into the beta; made level 5 last night thanks to Jeremy's help.  See all you there on Wednesday
@  DBMgamer : (20 July 2014 - 08:38 PM) Wednesday I am stuck on my phone till then
@  DBMgamer : (20 July 2014 - 08:36 PM) Yeah I'd rather use it than not even on one guy if he surprised you, and Josh I will look at the bungie.net site when I get back home from the lake wend at
@  Chilli2627 : (20 July 2014 - 05:17 PM) @twentyone, I gotta disagree with saving special ability and grenades, they both recharge, and fairly quickly I say USE THEM!
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (20 July 2014 - 04:57 PM) Also, the Bungie site seems to think I'm not in a clan, yet I got the notification that Gamer accepted me into the clan.
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (20 July 2014 - 04:56 PM) I haven't really gotten a good idea for how accurate hip fire is. It's much more accurate than in BF4 but so far it seems not to be accurate enough to be used at anything but close quarters.
@  twentyONE : (20 July 2014 - 04:47 PM) Tip: crouching makes you invisible to radar...also, get good at hip-firing while strafing. Save grenades and powers for multiple enemies or being outnumbered.  The Crucible (similar to Halo) is a "ballet" of sprinting, sliding, jumping, melee, crouch-walking, grenades & powers. Movement/feel/flow will become second nature with time as expected.
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (20 July 2014 - 04:46 PM) @Chilli, I had a few solid Iron Banner rounds earlier without using heavy ammo at all. I'll look for it next time.
@  Chilli2627 : (20 July 2014 - 01:56 PM) I have success in the cricible snatching up all the heavy ammo and use a heavy MG. It surprises me how much the heavy ammo gets overlooked. Went 30-6 last night with over 6k score
@  wojo10 : (20 July 2014 - 09:58 AM) Just waiting to hear back from some people if not I'll pass them along to you Gamer.
@  DBMgamer : (20 July 2014 - 06:44 AM) Wojo I can give them away pretty easily if you want
@  DBMgamer : (20 July 2014 - 06:43 AM) yeah i noticed a delay as well such as Melee a guy and he dies almost a full second later, Hopefully they tighten that up
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (20 July 2014 - 06:32 AM) Gamer, I have painfully realized that over the past two days. There's also the occasional case of lag; shooting a guy in the face with a shotgun and he dies half a second later, that kind of thing. It's just something I'm gonna have to get used to I guess.
@  wojo10 : (20 July 2014 - 05:03 AM) That's for PS4
@  wojo10 : (20 July 2014 - 05:02 AM) Does anyone need a Destiny code? I received some extras.
@  DBMgamer : (19 July 2014 - 10:43 PM) Josh you have to remember that there is no moving spread like we are used to, but head glitching works like a charm
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (19 July 2014 - 09:25 PM) I cannot for the life of me figure out how to succeed in the Crucible. No matter how well my tactics are or how well my aim is I'm always outgunned by guys running around like chickens with their heads cut off. My rage builds with every second spend in the Crucible.
@  Dbl Incertion : (19 July 2014 - 07:11 PM) http://t.joystiq.com...-free-anymore#1
@  Michrulejj : (19 July 2014 - 10:32 AM) And 70% on the Beta started last night at around 11PM... It's 12:32 now Lol
@  Michrulejj : (19 July 2014 - 10:31 AM) I applied for it, I hope I do because I hate to say it it's looking better than Drive Club.  You can't customize cars on Drive CLub at all and the crew has insane amounts
@  DBMgamer : (19 July 2014 - 07:41 AM) Any of you PC guys getting into the Crew Beta?
@  Dbl Incertion : (18 July 2014 - 10:13 PM) I know!! So funny it's our new catch phrase like something from Mike Myers.... Still laughing.
@  DBMgamer : (18 July 2014 - 04:36 PM) Dbl, I was good till the "Shark" appeared lolol
@  twentyONE : (18 July 2014 - 02:23 PM) @Josh -  Dude, I hear you!  I never used it in the Alpha but, wow, I love watching the enemies go flying back from the force of the impact!
@  Chilli2627 : (18 July 2014 - 01:58 PM) Wanna see it?? LOL
@  Dbl Incertion : (18 July 2014 - 01:26 PM) My friends and I have laughed extensively at this. Thought I'd share the silly. https://www.youtube....h?v=6mg-2Y3e0-I
@  Mister Maf : (18 July 2014 - 12:11 PM) If anyone's in the market for Wolfenstein: The New Order, it's already half off on Steam for Quakecon.
@  Holmboy : (18 July 2014 - 10:24 AM) It was nice last year when EA released the Madden Aniversarry Edition for $99 and it included PC streaming of Sunday Ticket.
@  Dbl Incertion : (18 July 2014 - 09:19 AM) Yeah that Sunday ticket keeps getting crazier I pay already like $175 mo for my direct tv before all that shenanigans
@  JoshLemTheAspie : (18 July 2014 - 09:15 AM) I...freaking...LOVE...the hand cannons!
@  cbaker96 : (18 July 2014 - 06:58 AM) Seriously, BF4 pales in comparison to this Beta...so sad!  I had such a blast just starting the game!
@  cbaker96 : (18 July 2014 - 06:57 AM) I was able to get it loaded and played a little late last night.  I will be on late agin tonight but I will be on longer!
@  Holmboy : (18 July 2014 - 06:57 AM) NFL Sunday Ticket is $240 for the season to stream on your console. Ouch! Now I have to do some serious "Bar Math"  :beer:
@  DBMgamer : (18 July 2014 - 06:24 AM) In all honesty tho I wonder how much traffic on PSN the Beta Download generated yesterday, i would think alot
@  DBMgamer : (18 July 2014 - 06:21 AM) U should have seen how bad it was for the first 2 hours after 1pm.  I was Lucky, to get it started in the first 20 mins, and it was a fight to get it.... whats my $50PS+ being used for again   :Winking:
@  Holmboy : (18 July 2014 - 05:39 AM) Last night's Destiny action was fun, hopefully tonight I'll have more time to really explore instead of trying to stay awake while leveling up. Was absolutely shocked the PSN was up and that it only took me 25 minutes to download.
