Wow that's a lot later then I expected. Hmmm, now do I still go through and buy my PS4 when I originally planned to (sometime in March) or do I wait till right before Destiny comes out? I'll definitely have to think that through (though I most likely will buy it earlier, only because I want Watchdogs).

Thats basically a year from now. O_O It better not have any issues considering the late release date. I'm really looking forward to this game, but they need to make sure they get the bugs out. Defiance was so buggy I have no interest in buying another game from Trion.. period. I've never owned a Bungie game and my initial experience with them will be this game. I hope they don't drop the ball. I'd rather they keep delaying it until it has solid functionality and gameplay.

Of all the Halo games I've ever played, none of them had game breaking bugs at launch. However, this is their first time going multi-platform. I think a summer beta test is a good move so long it's June or July, and not August. A good 8-10 week test would do some good.

I think the multi-platform option all these developers chose was stupid. BF4 should have been a next-gen release only game. Instead they're splitting their support teams into fixing a broken game on 5 platforms instead of 3.. and its a noticeable issue for DICE/EA right now.

 

Watchdogs is probably delayed because of current gen system errors. If not for ps3 and xbox 360, they could have focused on getting the game done and released by now.

Obviously COD Ghosts had no problems with supporting 5 platforms.. especially considering that game was all based off old tech. It wouldn't surprise me if the next COD after Ghosts was still released on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as next gen. But some of these developers are shooting themselves in the foot. They have all this new tech at their disposal and they have to make 2 versions of the game and turn down effects, graphics, change controller layouts, etc. all to release the game on even more outdated systems than initially thought, because of all the delays.

 

Destiny coming out for PS3 and Xbox 360 almost a year after the next gen systems came out seems pointless to me unless the games are cross platform like DC Universe, with the old gen systems still playing in the same servers, but with restricted graphics.

If it's as good as they're promising and as good as it's been looking in gameplay videos I don't doubt it'll see that many sales. Look at WoW, at one time it had over 10 million subscribers plus who knows how many people outside of that actually bought the core game and all it's expansions (more then 10 million and it's been out for 10 years this Nov). The only thing, as I said, is if they can deliver what they promised. That will be the main deciding factor on whether it can move that many units (I know I'll be one of those 10 millions sales).

If anyone can do it it's bungie. Although I was never a huge fan of Halo, I do respect the fact that each game was unique and different from the previous unlike the cookie cutter approach that most fps seires rely on. They aren't afraid to delve into the unknown and take chances. I can't wait to see what they have put together.

I depends on the testing period. The first few days are going to be a wreck... there are going to be so many people trying it out, but as I've said, this is the best possible thing that can happen. Destiny is going to get a true stress test, unlike every AAA multiplayer experience out there. Open beta use to be common, and one day everyone got stuck up and hired "professional testers"... why pay for something you can get for free?

 

I'm not looking for something thats going to blow my mind, I kinda want that to wait for the actual game, but I would like an epic small taste of what is yet to come. I'm sure there will be plenty of fire team public events. I'm looking at 3 level cap increases, a minor boss, and some pvp testing.

Professional testers will test exactly what the company wants them to test, hence why they use them. Plus they use an extremely rigid template as to what can be considered a bug, something your everyday average joe has no idea about. Open betas are the way to go but sadly companies want a true test, not just 1 million+ people to send them random reports about what they think is a bug (to be considered a bug in a professional setting the tester must be able to provide proof  the bug exists and proof that said bug can be replicated, something not all open testers are willing to do). This is the reason there is a game tester job in most companies, they want a professional tester who's done this more then a few times to test and find these bugs. Open betas these days are used more as server stress tests then anything else hence why you only see open testing in the last 1-2 months before the game is released. The things you learn when you go to school for this.

 

I'm with DX. I'm not really looking for a mind blowing experience. What I'm looking for is just to see if they are going to be giving us some of the stuff they promised on launch or not (like the public events) and I want to get my hands on each of the classes so I can learn how each plays and what one I like the most. Outside of that I'm already sold on everything else.

After watching this a few times, you know what I noticed that I really like? Its so simple, yet I haven't seen it done before. The mini map points out where you are being attacked from. I like that sooo much better than the edge of the screen method. I utilize the mini map in any game I play that features it. I much rather refer there than 4 different corners of the screen. I tend to have tunnel vision when I'm focused on an objective and I'm never able to tell where I'm getting hit from otherwise.

I'm glad the loot will be separate. I really like how they are incorporating MMO style elements into an FPS. Elite armor, individual loot, co-op, but then it lets you have your weapons available across all classes and that is great. Depending on how I end up playing this game, I might switch back and forth between sniping and being a tank that rushes into the mass of enemies.

Yeah thats a big plus for me because I'm digging that red revolver I keep seeing in the videos. I'd definitely rock a pistol and a shotgun.... I'm interested in seeing a shotgun, they mentioned it, but I don't recall seeing any so far.

      The two best anime this season so far are Goblin Slayer and SSSS.Gridman. Goblin Slayer caused a huge uproar over its first ep.. which honestly is stupid. Plenty of acclaimed anime have had an uncomfortable rape scene. A heavily censored scene that took up all of 10 seconds of the episode. However, whether intended or not, it got everyone talking about it. After that, it resumed as a normal but violent anime. It also wasn't random, it established the goblin's as pure evil. SSSS.Gridman is your standard over the top Trigger mecha anime... but it starts out off the rails. I don't see how they can get much more bat shit crazy. That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, Zombie Land SAGA, and Double Decker: Doug and Kirill have all been fun and quirky though. Overall I'm enjoying this season even if I'm skipping on a few of the shows.

      I got my new fridge hooked up over the weekend. Built in water and ice maker is amazing. I never realized how convenient that really is. Thanks goes out to the inlaws and aunt for the amazing gift.

      This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done.  ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.
