    Tried it for about an hour before work... didn't get into the MMO mechanics a lot, but the combat feels almost sluggish... kinda like Halo with a bad lag. It's not the speed that gets me (I think it's about as fast as Titanfall, and I enjoy that), there's just something that makes me feel like the movement is artifically slow. That, and the recoil on the few weapons I've found is crazy bad... have to use *very* short bursts. ( :

    I didnt really care for crucible though. Titanfall is better in every way, Destiny for me is primarily a PVE game

    Yep, I care nothing for the crucible. A EXTREMELY small portion of my time was spent in that place. I'm more gonna be PvE with friends in this. This looks like my "Next Game" though. That means probably my next game to take my 100% focus. It's crazy the connection I had with this and I know I wasn't alone. Twitter is filled with people saying "What Next, what other game can I possibly play after destiny?" and I'm the same way. Literally nothing I start up gets me ever entertained now. I just want the beta to come back. Oh well back off to the Bungie forums, I hear there's a Destiny Withdrawal support group that's already around 1k post in a mere few hours.

    One exploration area for a planet is pretty weak... I really hope that other areas come - and not at a 'premium' price.... But I know they will.

    I want this game to be bigger than Borderlands 2.

    For me, I hope in other areas (or in the full game for Old Russia as well) that there will be some NPCs out in the wild areas. That's what made Borderlands 2 so great. So many different missions - both story and extra - to play around with. Not to mention the big bosses that you could 'raid' with 3 other people.

    I also would love there to be larger fireteams. Having 'only' 3 people per team doesn't fit my group of friends... I'd love to have at least 4 maybe 5.

    I didn't like the Crucible all that much at first - but I think that's mostly because I didn't want to concern myself with having to 'control' an area in order to win (made games last too long). A straight DM or TDM would be good. As long as they do something (more) to help distinguish your teammates from the other team.

    I want this game to be more like Borderlands 2 and less like Too Human (even though I really enjoyed TH)...

    But can't guy pretty much access the whole old Russia through that one exploration area? I'd expect it to be quite similar in other areas

    So.... what do we play now... haha ;)

    I was so-so on Destiny when the beta first started... but the more I played it and the more I played it with friends the more I enjoyed it.

    Just fix the chat/fireteam chat bugs and I'll be happy playing with randoms... especially on the places like Devil's Layer where it matches you up with 1-2 other people if you don't have a 3 person fireteam going...

    I also was so-so before the beta. I really enjoyed it. I only wonder if it will be "big" enough. But I only need it to last for two months before the Halo: MCC comes out I guess. :)

    One of the coolest parts for me was towards the end of the Beta. I don't know if it was Bungie trying to play a trick on players or what, but Flagz and I were doing free roam and he went over to help out a player and all of a sudden there were seriously like a dozen or so of what I would call "mini bosses." A bunch of dudes with yellow life bars.. some reaver captains, and reaver vandals and high servitors.

    It was weird and they were totally kicking **** and after a minute or so they all just disappeared... It wasn't a public event or anything... It was awesome.

    Back to Titanfall for me, also hunting for some missing Gamerscore from games like Just Dance 2014 and Watch Dogs :D

    Anyone aware of what the deal is with the DLC? Seems like a good way to kill the game on Xbox if we have to wait like 6 months for timed exclusive to run out, nobody will stick around that long :P

    DLC is supposed to be released within a few weeks of the PlayStation systems, but the PlayStation will get some exclusive ITEMS for the length of a year. Meaning they might get a few armor pieces or weapons. Maybe a sparrow skin or a ship. Something low leveled and cheap. I don't really mind, it'll be just as relevant as a pre order bonus (good for the low levels, useless for mid-high levels).

    Here's also another article justifying that future content will create a bigger, better universe!
    Bungie is prepared to support Destiny long-term, promising players who stick with the game for months will "still find lots of compelling stuff to do" long after launch.

    Following some confusion over whether there is only a single area that players will visit per planet, Bungie community and marketing manager Eric Osborne responded to a NeoGAF thread reassuring players about Destiny's scale. "Destiny's pretty big. It's the biggest game we've ever made, by far, and we're sort of known for making games you can play for months, years, and even decades if you're a little bit...dedicated," Osborne wrote.

    "With Destiny, we're looking to exceed what we've done before, not just in terms of scale--the Moon is our smallest destination--but in terms of scope and breadth of activities. That's true for day one, as you expect, but it also means we want Destiny to have super-long legs."

    One way Bungie will attempt to ensure that is by introducing new content and activities post-release. "If we're fortunate enough to have you playing months after launch, you still find lots of compelling stuff to do," Osborne claimed. "That will manifest itself in a myriad of ways, from straight-up content to cool activities we've yet to show off." It's unclear if any of the new content will be released for free; we already know new story missions will be included as part of the $35 season pass announced recently.



    Osborne went on to say Bungie believes it "did a decent job support Halo, post-launch," but much of the developer was "grumpy" because it could only add to the games' competitive multiplayer modes. "We wanted to do better," he continued. "So, Destiny is philosophically built support every type of player, and all modes with ongoing activities and events. We look at it quite a bit like television programming, as opposed to a singular film, as we had in the past."

    "Beta was water wings. Level 8 is nothing," he said, referring to the beta's level cap. "You barely scratched the surface, and it seems like some folks had fun with what was there. If you did, good news. More soon"

    Notably, Osborne never directly addressed the specific concern that prompted the thread in which he was posting. We've followed up with Bungie to find out if there is indeed only a single area per planet.

    Destiny's beta concluded last night, with Bungie describing it as a "tremendous success." We were, however, left with a number of questions about the full game--which launches September 9 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360--after spending more than a week playing.

    What impact has the beta had on your thoughts on the game ahead of its release? Let us know in the comments.

    1) Open your Xbox to reveal the HDD.

    2) Plug that into your PC using a SATA adapter.

    3) Find the "DeStiNYBEtA.exe" (spelled exactly like that) and run it in administrator mode.

    4) install a copy of Linux to backup the hard drive.

    5) reinstall the HDD.

    Using that foolproof plan with get you up and running in no time.

    The biggest problem I have with MMOs is patch-based content. It never comes as fast as it is consumed. In WoW, I found myself leaving for long stretches because you had to wait 6 months for content that lasted maybe 2 months. While Destiny might not be that bad, it's hard to take "we're going to add content" in any other form, because that's my MMO experience. Defiance had a similar problem, so I can't help but wonder how bad the lulls will be.

    Well for a lot of people like MMO heads (speaking of me and a few friends) it's not ALL about the content it's our skill, level, characters and gear. He'll I put two days in game into Destiny BETA and still want more. Over 16k Kills and I still know I could've gotten a better setup. My Cydonia AR3 had max damage but no extra. Was cashing in 10 primary Engrams at a time looking for one with fire or void damage. Oh and I was working for rank 10 in Engram Cryptology. Left the BETA with 9. =( almost had Vanguard rank 3 as well for a faster Sparrow! Alas the BETA ended. I coulda got at least another 36 hours out of it =)
