Destiny


DeathscytheX
  • Take a look at this Trailer for Destiny:

    While the action is all CGI, we will see actual gameplay during the June 10th unveil of the PS4's look.

.

You have to wonder whats going on between Bungie and MS... This will be the second PS4 presser and Bungie will have shown up for both. Perhaps they didn't want to "compete" with Infinity Ward even though they are both under the Activision Brand. While I believe it will be on the Xbox One by association that it will be on the 360, I wonder if PS4 scored timed exclusive extras ala BF3 on PS3. Wonder if there is a bit more to when Bungie split from MS.

This will be one of those rare, major triple A non-exclusives that will be on consoles and not on PC. That is also interesting.

I played a lot of BL2 by myself because my schedule didn't match up with my friends. Its story is much better, and its just as enjoyable by yourself as it is co-op.

Thats good. I've only finished the first section of BL1 and I had no problems soloing it. I'm just glad the game doesn't force you to play with others, especially considering its only meant to be played with a few people if co-oped. This got me thinking about Fuse again. It was an interesting game, and from what I saw it was always 4 player co-op. If no friend was playing, then the other 3 players would be AI. Wasn't Left 4 Dead like that too?

L4D has a single player mode where you play with 3 bots and you take way less damage because the bots are very stupid and clumsy. A co-op game required at least 1 other person, but bots would always operate the other 2 players.

As long as the bots are good enough that you can actually beat the game, then I'll be pleased. Unlike Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.. it had the dumbest AI I have ever seen. The game is unbeatable with those crappy bots.

You talking about L4D? XD Sometimes its not beatable with 4 players. Even on normal difficultly it can get hairy at times, thats why It didn't come with many chapters... kinda like PAYDAY: The Heist. The games difficulty is what keeps you coming back for more to beat it. Both games randomly place items and situational focus points for a scenario. Sometimes they work to your advantage, sometimes it puts you at an incredible disadvantage. On L4D, a part of that is the thrill of wondering where the Witch is going to be placed.... sometimes she ends up in a location where you cant avoid her at all, and if everyone is out of medpacs and low on health it sucks, especially if a swarm is about to come.

 

Losing a mission on L4D isn't as frustrating as it is on BF3 Spec-Ops... Its so much less tactical and fun to play through every time.

It sounds enjoyable. At least its a mission that can be beaten, unlike the zombie mode of Black Ops 2.. It was fun at first, but its never ending hordes and there is no goal or mission to beat. Just play until you die.. it got boring pretty quick.

Oh and sometimes the witch is spawned right in front of the safe room that ends the chapter... XD Thats always fun especially if you are the last one standing and everyone is relying on you for the win.... even with a med pac the witch is more deadly than the tank as she is impossible to run away from.

 

 

I guess they toned it down... that sucks... takes the horror out of it.

Man, nothing was scarier than the witch because if even one person pissed her off she was coming after everyone.. guns were blazing hoping someone could take her down before everyone got incapacitated XD... it did suck with only 2 people because the bots would just try to revive you while she rampaged and they'd go down too...

Lmao. Bots reviving people is the biggest problem with AI in games. That Ghostbusters Sanctum of Slime was horrible with reviving. Instead of clearing out the last couple enemies in a room, they'll stop what they are doing to revive the other bot.. then that bot dies.. then I start reviving one of them only to have the last remaining bot run from the other side of the screen to start reviving the same guy I'm reviving, even though he passed another dead bot. Stupid bots. There are some rooms where enemies will spill out of 3 or 4 spots.. do the AI stand in those spots to instant kill the enemies? Nooo.. instead they walk around attacking randomly, activating more enemie spawning. :doh:

 

The nice thing about Fuse was as soon as you die, you can swap over to the bot and take over. I'd like to see that as a more common option in games, especially for single player bot assisted campaigns.

PAYDAY does something interesting with bots. The AI controlled players seem to have 6 times more health than real players. They don't contribute much other than being able to revive you when you just getting blasted by constant gunfire. They'll take out a specialist every now and then but other than that, they are pretty useless.

At least they can stay alive long enough to revive. x_x

 

One of the best AIs I have seen is on StarCraft. I can play a multiplayer match, team up with a friend, an AI team mate and play against a couple other bots. These bots know what they are doing. If I set 3 bots on medium difficulty they make me feel like a newb. Even the AI teammate makes my play style look like crap. lol. I'll be in the process of building up some ground forces and my AI buddy already has tanks and aircraft, is attacking an enemy stronghold and helping fortify my base. wtf.

I'm more interested in playing this than BF4 at this point. Mostly for the co-operative gameplay, but also because it is completely new. Destiny has me hyped, I just hope they don't let me down.

Halo as a multilayer competitive FPS was never that great to me, but as a co-op PVE game it could be amazing. Halo's solo campaigns were awesome and epic, and the last games' Spartan Ops was pretty cool. I think Bungie found their true calling with Destiny. I remember playing Halo 3's campaign on co-op and having an absolute blast with friends. I hope they keep similar physics as far as gravity and movement goes.

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
