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.

I think GTA5 had a bit to do with it as well. After all GTA5 destroyed COD's sales records. Watch Dogs looked horrible on old Gen models, so you're probably right about that

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 all to release the game on even more outdated systems than initially thought, because of all the delays.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.

It depends on the size of public events. I assume there are going to be some epic bosses and the devil walker just scratches the surface. The older gen can't handle more than 32 still.

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.

This game has so much hype.. 10 million life time sales..  I hope the beta is jaw dropping amazing. Because if it is, I think they will achieve that goal.

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.

      If there is one thing I despise about anime across all genres, its the damn "recap X.5" episode. Nothing makes me cringe more when I load up my funi app only to see this week is a waste of time for one of the shows I watch. I was really irritated that FMP had one after just 4 episodes, and Legend of Galactic Heroes has one this week. Seriously, what a waste of effort and time. Even if I missed episodes, I'd rather go back and see the whole ep rather that get caught up on some clips from it mashed in with everything I've already seen.
      On another note, My Hero Academia was freaking amazing this week. Any ep where All Might fights is seriously some of the best content of the series.
      And then Steins;Gate 0 just gut punched us in the feels this week with Okabe shortly going back to an alpha world line... oh the feels. The emotional level of this series is brutal. It's been a while since I've felt this much empathy for a character.

      When I watched Tokyo Ghoul season 1 and 2 a few years ago, I thought it was the most over hyped pile of shit I've ever seen. Apparently it didn't follow the manga at all. I've been watching season 3 just because its a simuldub, and while I find it more entertaining, it's so disjointed from the first two seasons, it doesn't make any sense as a whole. Apparently they somewhat decided to start following the manga after skipping a few arcs? Apparently they announced season 4 and it's going to skip more between 3 and 4? What a train wreck... They might as well start over.

      You could definitely tell this was the last E3 for this generation of consoles. Super small showcases for everyone this year. Next year's E3 will be back to the ultra hype reels for Sony and Microsoft unveiling the next consoles followed with the games that are being made for them. It will be an off year for Battlefield next year, but the first COD will be by C studio Sledgehammer, since MW4 will be the last COD this gen.

      Absolutely gutted and devastated to hear of Anthony Bourdain's death, turned an already shitty day into an extremely shitty day. I would of said something earlier but I had to come to terms and sort out my own thoughts on this (and of course get through a 10 hour work day).
      The world truly is a bit darker and a lot less interesting today with his loss. His passion, gift for storytelling, humanity, and all around awesome attitude were what drew me in when I first started watching A Cook's Tour (his first show) so many years ago and what cemented my love for this man during the run of No Reservations. Sadly I never did get around to watching Parts Unknown or The Layover but I can only imagine they were as good as the other two. This man truly had a gift for opening his heart and mind to people and their culture as well as getting them to open up as well.
      RIP Mr. Bourdain, not only have you opened my eyes to new things, given me countless hours of enjoyment, and been an all around awesome person you've also inspired my love for travel (that one day I will hopefully get to do) and my love for other cultures. You will truly be missed and my heart goes out to your daughter and family in this extremely tragic moment. I can only hope you've finally found the peace that so eluded you in life.
