Destiny?
« on: July 28, 2014, 08:47:59 am »
Anyone else play the Destiny beta?

I know it's on a console, but I had my PS3 gathering dust since the Move games never moved into a direction I liked and it was available this weekend. So I tried it out. It certainly doesn't seem to live up to the hype from the advertising, but I actually enjoyed it more than I thought. Especially since it's a shooter on a console. I only got about an hour in, but it was fun enough I wanted to keep playing, but the beta was already done when I got a chance to go back for more.

While it's an MMO, it really played more like a solo game in the beginning. Not sure if that continues or not. Each of the three classes seems about offense, so no real tank/healer/dps methodology. Not sure what else to say about it

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

I've been watching it, but slowly/surely I'm hearing its no where near the hype and since its a console game I'm not too terribly interested since we wouldn't be able to get a guild presence. And I see Pyl is already hating on it...
I'll try anything once and do it again for fun.

This forum is COMPLETELY empty. I thought it would make a nice 'first post'.

I'm suprised you keep some of these forums around. I figured you would have just blasted them or atleast consolidated them so it doesn't look so inactive and desolate when scrolling down.

I was looking up details on hooking a mouse / keyboard to my Playstation. Apparently it's doable, it depends on the game more than the hardware. Some games require the controller, some games work with KB/M.

If this works with KB/M, I can't imagine the amount of tears that would be shed from my opponents on inferior input controls. It would be worth playing for that alone. If not, I'll probably never spend the money... the controller is just so much more inferior to the mouse.

I do trim unused forums from time to time, but it is a gaming forum and I think a gaming forum should have a console section whether or not anyone uses them.
