Nice. I'm placing my pre-order for Destiny tonight via the PSN store. I think I'm going to go digital for the majority of my PS4 games from here on out.

I'm hoping they really open up a lot more for us to do in the beta because the alpha, as fun as it was, was really constrained. Redoing all the same crap over and over got a little repetitive and dull (I had fun but those missions just get boring to continually grind). I'm not asking for a lot but I'd really like to see more story based missions and at least another Strike for us to take on (though I really want another shot at The Devil's Lair, as much grief as it gave us to get through I really enjoyed doing it. Want to try it on Legendary difficulty next).

I would like some access to the crafting station just to see what kind of basic stuff I can make out of the stuff I got from dismantling unwanted weapons.

I agree about wanting to see more than the grinding missions. I hope they let us see some plot and story line to experience more of the RPG elements of the game.

I have high expectations for the beta. Seeing as the alpha played like a finished product, the beta should be great. The xbox players are getting shafted by bungie. Lol. No alpha and only a 4 day beta.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are as many emblems in Destiny as there are dog tags and emblems in BF4. I'm ready for this beta.. Has Bungie mentioned anything about deleting the alpha off the PS4? Like would we save download time if the beta is an update for the alpha? Or maybe we should delete it off the PS4 for a fresh download.. hmm.. I never deleted it off my system yet.

I deleted my alpha. If they keep your play record, they dont need your console data. They collected a ton of info during the alpha. I don't think any of it transfers over though.

F'in whiners. I hope they realize that outside of the money Sony threw at Activision to get the special treatment for Destiny that Bungie is probably doing this as a slam in Microsoft's face for the way they treated them during their time developing Halo for them. Honestly MS screwed Bungie by taking the rights to Halo as part of the deal for them to leave but Destiny is already a much better game then Halo ever was (don't get me wrong I love the Halo series but honestly giving the game to 343 was, imo, the worst thing they could of done for the series) and I'm happy Sony is get preferential treatment with it. Make me even happier that I bought a PS4.

This is definitely one of those times where brand loyalty causes blindness. Halo Fans aren't getting screwed over. Certain Halo Fans stupidity to only own gaming devices from only one particular company is just bad decision making on their part.

This. Bungie stayed professional about losing all the rights to the IP they created. They parted ways without being nasty publicly. But if you read the articles at that time, everyone could see they got screwed hard. Sony swooped in, embraced them and it has paid off. It was a golden opportunity to finally have access to the company that revolutionized FPS. Bungie even had part in PS4's controller design, which means they were given unprecedented access to Sony's stuff in regards to next gen. Bungie felt the love and is returning it while Xbox One and 360 is just a cash cow for them as of right now.

 

It reminds me of Nintendo and Rare back in the 90s. I understand why MS did what they did... but they didn't go about doing it the right way. They were mad that Bungie wanted to go 3rd party, so they intentionally tried to hurt them. The fans have to suffer, but they should be blaming MS, not Bungie... they're too caught up in the fanboyism of it all.

Today Bungie posted an "Everything You Need to Know about the Beta". There is also a possibility that Beta progress could transfer over to the retail product... Bungie wouldn't say that it definitely will not, but won't commit on that it will. For more read the VG247 article below:

It would be great if or beta characters would carry over. I put in around 10 hours into the alpha and with the beta lasting a week, that could lead to some serious time. I don't mind replaying part of a game but numerous hours of repetition would get a bit annoying especially for campaign based missions.

The app is very detailed. But with the amount of graphics and 3D images in it, I can only assume it uses heavy bandwidth. I'll only use this on wifi. You can even see a 3D representation of your character in the app.. fully rotatable and zoomable to see your armor and admire your upgrades. Very impressive, but the weapon and ship models seem way too dark on my phone.

 

I'm not sure I like the Titan class so far. Its really a tank class, but with my weak armor at the beginning of the game, I'm hesitant to jump into a horde of enemies to utilize my smash move. If I don't kill a good chunk of enemies with it, then I'm a sitting duck. The upgrades for the class make alot of sense tho. The melee attack when upgraded can cause splash damage, has a chance of instant recharging and can also cause a significant cooldown of the special attack. Also, the special attack can cause more area of effect damage and can be upgraded to be aimable while in a lift jump. Which would be much better than what I've got now. I jump in the air, but when I smash I don't know if I'll land in the big group of enemies or on the outer edge of the group. I can see the devastating potential of this class, but I think I'll still prefer Hunter over it. I might scrap my Titan here soon and start over with a Warlock to see which one I prefer.

I would like to see more frequent public events. I was glad to finally beat that drilling site one the other night. Tonight I did some data upload where you had to stay within a circle for the upload to progress while waves of stronger and stronger foes get dropped off. We beat it pretty easily with 3 people and got the max reward "3 star" I think it was called. I got vanguard marks out of it. I also performed my first bounty. I chose the kill 20 enemies without taking damage from them and crushed it fairly quickly.

 

I hope they raise the level cap to at least 15 just so we can have a taste of the other subclasses.

      Just finished season 1 of Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans. I enjoyed it, but man I can't help but notice the parallels with Gundam Wing. A young female working for peace, a semi-emotionless male pilot, an antagonist that disguises himself with a mask in a red mobile suit? Eh, maybe I'm looking too much into it, there are more differences than similarities. Since CN has the broadcast rights, I hope Funi eventually gets season 2 on stream... its the only Gundam they have. I will say I'm not the biggest fan of the designs on this one. I liked Gusion and EB-AX2, but that was about it.

      Fucking hell that was a ride. Just finished watching Steins;Gate and I have to say its an amazing show. I finally understand why people love it so much. Characters are pretty interesting (pretty bland and stereotypical but none-the-less interesting), story is completely bonkers (we're talking Serial Experiments Lain and Boogiepop Phantom levels of bonkers) and amazing, and the sheer emotional ride this puts you through is both terrifying and exciting.
      Sure it starts out pretty slow but once you get to the halfway mark it seriously starts moving at an intense pace. I normally don't praise anime this much but this is truly a great show, almost a masterpiece if I've ever seen one (probably one of the only shows I have rated at 10 on MAL that actually deserves the rating for all the right reasons, not just pure enjoyment). I highly recommend watching it if you haven't, it's definitely worth the time investment (and I'll admit it's not for everyone but if you want a show that tears your emotions to shreds and makes you think this is definitely one for you).
      Seriously can't wait for Steins;Gate 0 to start airing on Thursday (really hope CR has the simulcast for it). Now I just need to find time to watch the movie and the OVA before it starts. Also need to hope the VN this is based off of goes on sale on Steam so I can see the actual story that wasn't adapted for the anime (and to see all the other endings).

      I caught up on Overlord's season 2 simuldub. So far it's entertaining but all over the place. There isn't as much action so far which is disappointing. All these characters are so OP, but that was what was great about season 1. Especially since Ainz vs. Shalltear was an amazing finale with two ultra OP characters going at it like a chess game. However I figure everything happening now is leading up to something bigger. They're spending more time world building in season 2 in which they did very little of in season 1. Plus season 3 was ordered. People can say what they want about Funi, but I bet there are some series out there that would have never been renewed past it's first season 6-8 years ago. Props to netflix too even though their series are hit and miss. I finished A.I.C.O. Incarnation last night, while it didn't blow me away, I enjoyed it.. same goes for ID-0. It's come a long way from Toonami, spending days downloading stuff off Limewire and torrents, or staying up til 4am in hopes Sci-Fi played Akira or Vampire Hunter D

      So far Netflix is 1 for 3 on their new series. Sword Gai was ok, but it was more like a GARO/Guyver type clone. B: The Beginning could have been better written. Maybe its the story structure that is throwing me off as they are definitely more western in flow. I'll probably watch both for another season. Children of the Whales was pretty enjoyable and my favorite of the three. I definitely look forward for its most definite second season. It was pretty charming in a Studio Ghibli way.

      I ordered a new router, its an AC1900. It should be coming in the mail today. It'll be a big upgrade over the crappy very low end belkin router I've been using for 2 years. Maybe that steam link I bought over a year ago will actually work wirelessly now. That thing is a nice concept but ended up being pointless for me unless it has a wired connection. Instead I stream all my games to my laptop which works alot better. Maybe this router will improve that connection and fix some of the blockiness I get, especially while streaming netflix at the same time.
