@  twentyONE : (17 September 2014 - 05:50 PM) I have to admit that I am enjoying Destiny much more than I thought I would...especially the PvP.  Yes the missions are repetitive and there isn't much replay factor for me but overall I am really enjoying it.  Although, how long I and many others stick around for the PvP remains to be seen.
@  DBMgamer : (17 September 2014 - 03:09 PM) Hey Red I think the source of the "Destiny Derailed" reviews came from the combination of the disjointed story and the lack of content.  The gameplay is great for me personally but I don't get why Bungie sandbagged the content (there are 3 areas just on Russia we can't play yet).  I think should Polygon review it after the 2nd DLC lands and more areas of the game are accessible it would score better
@  twentyONE : (17 September 2014 - 01:30 PM) That nostalgia, that thirst: Headlong, Relic, Terminal....Rat Race, Damnation, Hang 'em High.....Avalanche, The Pit, Sandtrap....Longship, Burial Mounds, Waterworks, Valhalla....
@  kubucjuszowy : (17 September 2014 - 04:15 AM) Holmboy, give me my RB back! :)
@  DBMgamer : (16 September 2014 - 06:22 PM) Updated the Destiny Unlock codes, got 3 more free emblems
@  TheBMT : (16 September 2014 - 05:13 PM) Well I guess it was bound to happen.  In my rush to respond to messages and delete one.  I blocked communication of a friend... and have no idea how to fix it lol
@  Dbl Incertion : (16 September 2014 - 09:56 AM) Maybe in a year or two.
@  Myelencephalous : (16 September 2014 - 09:25 AM) get a PS4 dbl!
@  Dbl Incertion : (16 September 2014 - 08:40 AM) I've found it quite difficult to group up. Missed out on the weekly strike due to only having 1 friend still playing.
@  TheBMT : (16 September 2014 - 08:29 AM) Does anybody see any similarities with Destiny to the game Too Human?
@  TheBMT : (16 September 2014 - 08:25 AM) haha, I havent had any one to play with the entire time.  It has been challenging, but ive been lucky so far. First time with the Vex was like "f*ck ME"
@  Myelencephalous : (16 September 2014 - 07:28 AM) @BMT, you will now realize how difficult the game gets if you don't have friends to play with that are at the same level!
@  TheBMT : (15 September 2014 - 10:12 PM) kinda enjoy ranking up to 20 prior to continuing the missions too much in the story.  Feel more like a proper guardian.
@  TheBMT : (15 September 2014 - 10:11 PM) I just now hit Venus in Destiny after hitting lvl 20.  Having the extra difficulties unlocked is a nice addition for doing it solo.
@  Myelencephalous : (15 September 2014 - 10:12 AM) I shot this vid yesterday for all the train lovers - one of the largest steam engines in the country; it creates a mild earthquake as it passes and was setting off car alarms  https://www.youtube....h?v=aa5kBWk01xE
@  Myelencephalous : (15 September 2014 - 09:58 AM) coooool  https://www.youtube....h?v=dVGaIJEGZSI
@  TheBMT : (14 September 2014 - 06:06 AM) I didnt really get over hyped for destiny, tho I think I was just hyped in general to get my hands on a new Bungie game.
@  Dbl Incertion : (14 September 2014 - 01:18 AM) I'm gonna agree - ryse, watch dogs, destiny,  wolfenstein, and others have just been .... Average. I'm hoping shadows of mordor is good. Especially since it's not been over hyped. Also IM LOOKING AT YOU HALO 1-4 Xbox one collection!!! That's gonna be sweet. +gta V
@  Andrew6679 : (13 September 2014 - 09:42 PM) I feel like the hype games get now days is just too high for them to meet. It's devistating to games and their sales.
@  Andrew6679 : (13 September 2014 - 09:26 PM) Ouch. This isn't what I wanted to hear. Well alright.
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 September 2014 - 07:03 PM) Fun for a short while particularly just because it's new but that wears off the 7th missions that's cut/pasted. Multiplayer is imbalanced like crazy and strikes are fun once or twice.  Overall playing it because nothing else out yet I want to touch.
@  THE RED DRAGON : (13 September 2014 - 06:05 PM) It's growing on me - but i'll be rdy to move on as soon as the next game hits.  Its fun to play something new and its a lot better with friends.  Not GOTY
@  Andrew6679 : (13 September 2014 - 12:11 PM) How did Destiny turn out eveyone? I have been trying to isolate myself from it since i had to cancel my order.
@  Chilli2627 : (12 September 2014 - 12:25 PM) art of the instakill  http://youtu.be/QwNVQvygCNQ
@  Dbl Incertion : (12 September 2014 - 11:24 AM) 3 buddies bought the game already down to 1 friend left playing it.. . f**king blows...
@  Dbl Incertion : (12 September 2014 - 11:23 AM) Man.... Why is destiny just Peter Dinklage opening locks and doors and us fighting off waves of enemies. .. . . And why is every boss fight a "Hey look over here while 2 other guys shoot you in the balls" .... =-(
@  Dbl Incertion : (11 September 2014 - 01:53 PM) Xbox streaming sounds super f**king AWESOME!
@  DBMgamer : (11 September 2014 - 12:11 AM) @BMT none of the Heroic or Nightfall stuff has happened yet, those will challenge you once they start up
@  TheBMT : (10 September 2014 - 09:37 PM) Dissapointed Bungie doesn't have a "Legendary" difficulty option in Destiny
@  Myelencephalous : (10 September 2014 - 11:52 AM) Just don't forget about mastering the crucible... more to come on that one!
@  Holmboy : (10 September 2014 - 08:47 AM) I agree Myelencephalous, tons of fun with you guys yesterday! The best part is hearing everyone scream like a girl whenever a high level enemy sneaks up on you and you have to run like a bitch to regenerate for a bit.
@  Dbl Incertion : (10 September 2014 - 08:46 AM) Strongly agree holms, the group/party system blows, cant talk to others to form up strikes, bunch of shenanigans. . . . Most fun was playing with a friend and realizing my titan helm had a huge "Horn" coming straight out of it lol. Game play is ok, WHY CANT WE FLY OUR SPACE SHIPS! missions are reptetitive and they re use caves and dungeons like this is Dragon Age 2.
@  Holmboy : (10 September 2014 - 08:43 AM) I'd be lying if I didn't say that Destiny's story and variety of missions is a bit underwhelming. It's strengths lie in having fun with freinds online, which it does come through in spades. Onto Venus we go...
@  Myelencephalous : (10 September 2014 - 07:30 AM) Thanks to Holmboy and Silent for the all day gaming session yesterday.  The game definitely starts to get hairy on the higher levels and is a ton of fun.  We earned a bunch of trophies, awards, and glimmer!
@  DBMgamer : (09 September 2014 - 04:26 PM) Ok got an Updated Code list for Bungie.net Destiny redeem portal
@  DBMgamer : (09 September 2014 - 04:22 PM) @BMT lol
@  TheBMT : (09 September 2014 - 03:59 PM) Dammit bungie... I cant resist your games.  Picked up Destiny on the way home from work.
@  Dbl Incertion : (09 September 2014 - 11:11 AM) Lol here's my review of your review of their review.... Brrrrrrrrrrrrt
@  Dbl Incertion : (09 September 2014 - 11:03 AM) http://www.gamezone....eeds-to-go-away
@  twentyONE : (09 September 2014 - 06:59 AM) FYI: official reveal of "Final Stand" tonight.  Leaks/rumors show it as a prequel to '2142' ..and there's Effin' SNOWBOARDS!! ...so pumped!!
@  Dbl Incertion : (09 September 2014 - 12:36 AM) Coming from a mmo background I don't want to just face bash into the same 2 heroic raids of a launch title due to nothing else besides a 6v6 pvp game.
@  Dbl Incertion : (09 September 2014 - 12:35 AM) Maaaaan..... I hope this game doesn't fizzle out due to lack of content. http://www.goodgameb...hours-complete/
@  DBMgamer : (09 September 2014 - 12:15 AM) oh nevermind Grumpy already answered it
@  DBMgamer : (09 September 2014 - 12:14 AM) @21 its from Young Frankenstien
@  Myelencephalous : (08 September 2014 - 10:35 PM) My Destiny is downloading!
@  Grumpy Joe : (08 September 2014 - 09:31 PM) @21 being old i remember "young frankenstein" And gene wilder  as being a great oscar worthy actor
@  TheBMT : (08 September 2014 - 08:51 PM) really want to play Destiny, but got too much goin on to be distracted by it.
@  twentyONE : (08 September 2014 - 08:41 PM) DESTINY, DESTINY...no escaping that for me!  (Bonus for not Googling that and know what it's from)
@  Dbl Incertion : (08 September 2014 - 07:52 PM) Destiny in 2 hours! Woo
@  Holmboy : (08 September 2014 - 01:14 PM) I'll be picking up Destiny and NHL 15 tonight at Midnight, took the day off tomorrow so if I'm too tired tonight, I'll be up early to play all day. Hope to see you guys out there!
@  Chilli2627 : (08 September 2014 - 11:16 AM) IGN livestream of Destiny right now! http://www.twitch.tv/ign
@  Chilli2627 : (08 September 2014 - 09:09 AM) I'll be away from home till thursday :(
@  Myelencephalous : (08 September 2014 - 08:07 AM) soooooo who else called off work tomorrow?

Had a thought and put it in the shoutbox but wanted to hear what you all thought....

How cool would it be if you could adjust your "Zero" or point of aim/point of impact in game? I think it would make shooting adjustments at ranges much easier, but you could only do it say when spawning or something. Has dice ever said what they use for a zero?

Anyways, maybe theres a way to graph it out, I mean if they can calculate muzzle velocity based on attatchments and how it affects bullet drop in game, I would think that this wouldnt be too hard to do. Maybe the calculations in a multi player game would smash servers from having to track all that, I dont know, just a thought.

I would love to see optics with adjustments, but to be honest the gameplay is too fast to use it effectively as its used in real world. Changing the zero is not a bad idea but with out a range finder it is still kinda useless.

The Mill dot scope is your best bet in the game as it allows you quickly range and sight in targets, then from there it is all trial and error and practice to get to be an expert which make it more of a challenge.

I can remember playing a hunting game on the PC years ago and had a drop chart for all the weapons. It was awesome getting the super long shots.

There are very accurate ballistic charts for all the weapons and ammo used in the game. If they don't already use them I can't imagine that it would be that hard to replace the data they use with the actual ballistic data. I have only played the Beta for BF3 (and watched many youtube videos) but it does not look like they include windage in the bullet travel. I would also like them to add a range finder. You don't do any real world long distance shooting with out it.

You can do this in Red Orchestra 2. Every time you kill someone, it tells you the distance of the kill to help players learn to estimate distance, and you have distance-adjustable sights that function exactly the way their real-world counterparts did.

I'd find you an example of the adjustable scopes, too, but YouTube is being dumb for me. Sniper rifles can also use their ironsights even if there's a scope attached, just like in real life (at least, that's how it worked back then).

RO2 is a very very unforgiving non-hand-holding shooter, though. People say you can't play Battlefield like you play Call of Duty - RO is even further in that direction; you can't play RO like you play BF.

See, it can be done. As far as real life goes, firefights tend to happen pretty quickly, and aiming down sights is aiming down sights. I can look at a man sized sillouhette down range and tell how far away it is, close enough to put steel on target anyways so thats not the issue for me. Maybe just have a buddy stand against a wall in a private match as I move further and further away. Find Poa/Poi that way.

Ya in the old school gaming work.. DELTA FORCE 2 and DELTA FORCE BLACK HAWK DOWN. I used to be a top sniper because I could snipe from ANY point on the map and do it spot on. They had a build in rang finder in the scope its-self. You could start aiming down rang and as you moved ur scope up or down it would tell you how far u had to make the shot. But you would have to use TWO keys on the Key board to adjust your signs Up-Down or Right-Left for wind speed. Made sniping a very deadly tool in the team and you could do it very fast. But this concept is NO GOOD on PS3 or X-BOX because of the amount of keys used and the amount you have to use. Its all give and take. You would have to give up something to make the keys do other things. That will never happen. PC maybe... but not on PS3 or X-BOX. Unless they make some MAJOR changes to the sniper and when you have the scope up the button layout changes to allow it to happen. Like FRAG and Sec. FLASH turns to the range adjusters.. I dunno. Maybe someday but not today =P

In BFBC2 and in BF3 they have a thing called marksman bonus. I am sure everyone already knows about this. But just in case the marksman bonus is a bonus you get from head shots at any distance. One point per meter your bullet travels. Very good at remembering ranges. If you have a good eye and can judge distance (yes I realize I am talking video game distances. lol ) you can figure the bullets drop and range of that from the marksman bonus and your own elevation from the target. At least that is what I use when sniping from insane distances. It is all about trial and error. Once I know the distance I can normally land hits from said range on a constant basis.

Ya same here.. I was pulling off some awesome shots even with the 4x scope.. that quickly became my scope of choise. Just have to watch whats going on and it will get easyer to judge as u get more exp with the game.
