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.

      YouTube bypasses Adblock Plus now. Ads are more annoying on PC than on the phone. I always wondered what those yellow lines were in the play timeline, they pop banners on the video at those times.

      My parents visited me over the weekend. Had a great time.  I wish I lived in the same state as the rest of my family so I could see them all more often.

      Finally got around to watching Black Mirror since, you know, I'm bored because I can't work (and as much as I try I just can't bring myself to play anything game wise outside of FFXIV and a little bit of Destiny (I'm stuck at 267 and have no urge to do the Exotic quests and I really don't want to level another character right now)).
      Gotta say this is definitely one of my favorite shows now. Really love how they're stand alone episodes that have no interconnection with each other (well they seem to all take place in the same year and same world (based on little hints I picked up in various episodes) but they're completely separate stories of their own). Some of the episode are really fucked up (the last episode of season 3, while not fucked up, is pretty fucking dark and has given rise to a new fear for me (saying what it is will ruin it if you haven't seen it), still one of my favorite episodes though) and some are really well thought out and emotional (the San Junipero episode is really fucking good).
      All around it's a great fucking series (better be it's British, yeah I have a thing for British television) and I highly recommend it. Figured I'd start Stranger Things this weekend since it sounds like I'll be out of work for another week (according to my surgeon's nurse when I talked to her on the phone, I'll find out more tomorrow) and be ready for when season 2 airs in Oct.
