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 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.

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. 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.

      I started Revisions on Netflix. The first episode has awful and janky CGI but it gets a lot better after that. The premise is great, but for fucks sake the main character is so damn annoying. He makes Asta from Black Clover look like a good character. Mecha series have the absolute worst main characters the majority of the time. I just don't get it. Mikazuki Augus, Sousuke Sagara, Lelouch Vi Britannia, and Van of the Dawn are the only ones I can think of that I've ever liked. But here we don't have your typical emotionless husk, or pacifist crybaby... you'd only wish for that once you meet Daisuke Dojima. He's ultra full of himself and a selfish idiot. Holy cow he should be a side character. All his friends aren't that great either as they all bicker with Daisuke's douchness. Why am I even watching this?

      Netflix put Code Geass up. Rewatching it reminded me what a badass Cornelia was (ultra best girl), and how savage Euphemia's death was. Damn it was so gut wrenching. It will always be the moment I'll never forget about the series. 
      Also, how I yearn for a return drawn mecha battles. Even the most degraded model quality in motion is so much better than wonky slow CGI. The Lancelot is such an awesome design.

      Eh, we got cheated on this short season of GoT. As cool as the winterfell battle was, the Night King's death felt so meaningless. And now Danny is insane?  C'mon... Yeah shes my favorite character, and I wouldn't have minded a descent into madness, but a flip in 2 eps? It's so forced it's sad. Just because Jon told the fam about his heritage and her friend got cut down. It made for an action packed ep, but it didnt make a lot of sense. The Hound and Mountain rivalry was resolved which is what I'm satisfied with... Mountain looked like bloated Darth Vader. 😂😂

      I"m loving owning a lawn tractor. I've used it only twice so far, but its great. I can get my entire lawn mowed in just under an hour and a half. The cup holder seems so pointless.. lawn tractors don't have shocks, its only the seat that has springs to save you from getting your ass and back wrecked.. I could only imagine someone putting a beer in that cup holder and driving off on the yard, that beer would last maybe 20 seconds before its all over the tractor.  Now I need to buy a weed trimmer to trim around the trees and the ditch.. and 3 ceiling fans. I hate the light fixtures in 3 rooms. Time for an upgrade.

      13 episodes into The Rising of the Shield Hero, and this show is pretty much taken the crown for this season... or last season depending.. I guess it counts for both as its still going. Unlike most Isekai, the main character is constantly getting screwed and is always at a disadvantage. The pure hatred you feel for all the other characters in this alternate world of douche is amazing. Literally everyone except a small handful of people are assholes. So the main character tends to go Mass Effect Renegade at times. The emotional vitriol this show invokes is outstanding. The animation of the characters and the dub voice actors nail it completely... as someone that it doesn't take much to want a character to die... I REALLY want 90% of the cast dead.
