More Destiny Alpha videos

Let's take our Destiny in our own hands is what we thought when deciding to show you more of Bungie's new title. The game is by no means perfect yet, there are adjustments to be made, but it is undeniably fun and extremely promising. Take a look at all our videos, but more importantly, try to get your hands on the game before making up your mind about it.

Great game with minor needed changes.

Like give the player more health and decrease the health of the bosses, they got insane alot of health to be taken down.

Make the loot much more specific on what it is and make them more Borderlands.

I know this is Alpha an this is why its there, but overal its great. Its basically Halo vibe with Borderlands rpg touch going online in a MMO style, but in a more serious tone to it all unlike Borderlands.

I think the bosses have good enough hp. Players are just being too run and gun. Not to mention many players are not using their l1+r1 ability. Since I've been playing , only one player and myself have used Nova Blast or whatever their particular class has.

If you have really good level 8 guns and you use special ability, bosses go down faster.

just run with people in your clan or friends list, that should get rid the run gun nubs that dont have clue how play effective

Confirmed my initial impression.
Vegetation still looks kind of poor.
Level design is very pleasing.
The lightning is and shadows are also very impresive (the shadows from the spinning fans are a great idea to showcase that)

Great game, addicting, gunplay is good.

The lack of GORE is very sad but I can deal with it.

No mention of a PC version as of yet.. but it wouldn't surprise me 6 months from now that they release one.

Out of all the footage I've seen so far ( roughly 40 mins) it looks pretty fun. graphics look good too, the vegetation is not the strong point of this game probably because it's supposed to represent a wasteland.

I do however have to say that industrial designs are very imaginative and well created. the colors and lighting are also nicely done. the countering factors of the content this game has kept it from being considered remotely generic.

while not being in the same graphical league as Crysis3, Evolve, or Metro, it does however sustain enough character to be a rather enjoyable game on it's own.

The dev's said it is a capacity problem, but only at the moment.
""It is [a good fit], and it's something we're talking about and looking at very carefully, and obviously it makes a lot of sense with the genre and the type of game it is," Hirshberg said. "No announcements, but it's something that's a heavy point of discussion.""

How the hell are so many people playing this?
Apart from the obvious E3

Al right I'm dumb....
Yeah this looks great, though I am a little concerned about the actual game play and the variety on how fights are played out, it just seems to me just an endless amount of shooting and the odd ability or whatever. Like it seemed a tad tedious to me and would get boring quickly, shooting endless amount of enemies dispatching most of them with one or two shots and the odd lets say big unit who basically is a bullet sponge. Obvious serious Halo Vibes, just didn't seem as fun or too fast paced. Also I hate the sound of the guys voice who talks over, really grates on me. One last thing the character creation seemed really limitedddd, hopefully that'll be improved considering this is alpha.

In PvP super-charged players should glow a bit or so.

The landscapes in this game look beautiful. Epic skyboxes as expected from Bungies Halo games (not talking from Halo 4 here...), smart enemies flankinh players, retreating and looking for cover, fighting in groups etc.

From a gameplay aspect it doesn't add anything(!) to the FPS genre. It's a BL with Mass Effect'ish skin. But I love science fiction games, I love open world titles and FPS and I love rpg-like character progression. And Destiny is the perfect combination.

I don't join or run with clans. Not my thing. I do run with friends and they didn't even know about the Destiny alpha. So yeah, I have to put up with players not learning to play more effectively.


There was a signup web page for the Destiny alpha. You gave them your psn id and if they picked you, you got a psn code sent to your psn registered email. You redeem code on ps store and boom, you're in. I also think codes were given out at some theaters where Sonys press conference was showing and some way,for whatever reason, codes were received from Amazon. Could be wrong about Amazon though.

Just looks like Halo to me but without the main character.

Playing it and looking back at previous Bungie vids they don't really compare well. Almost like two different games. Go get it cat.

I recommend playing the game before bashing it to the ground like SayifDoit does.

You may be waiting for a long time. Bungies a console developer.. regardless of what they've said I'd be shocked to see it on PC anytime soon
