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 all to release the game on even more outdated systems than initially thought, because of all the delays.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

      Been trying to up my soap game. I use to be a body wash person, but after obtaining some skin issues because bacteria can fester on those scrubbers, I swapped to good ole dial antibacterial stuff and it cleared it up in 2 days thankfully. My issue with bar soap is it doesn't last long, and you end up losing the last bit of it when it gets small and thin. I've been doing a lot of research and came a cross a few brands.
      Dr. Squatch seems to be the most popular, but that's mostly due to marketing from reviews I've read. When it comes down too it, it seems to be overpriced soap that doesn't last long or even smell good.
      AoS (Art of Sport) is another popular one, the reviews are mixed, but it seems to be pretty good for sweating. I'll def give this one a try in the future.
      Duke Cannon makes gigantic bars of soap. It lasts a pretty long time and they smell pretty industrial/economy if you now what I mean? I can see myself buying it again. Right now I don't see anything beating it, but the size is a bit inconvenient to hold on to. It feels like it will break a toe if you drop it on your foot.
      Next on my list though is Viking Revolution and No 63. I bought a bar of each off amazon to see what that's about. I have high hopes for No 63 because all the reviews said it lasts a crazy long time. That's mainly what I'm looking for. The smell is less important as no soap scent lasts more than an hour out of the bathroom, and even then someone needs to basically press their nostrils against your skin to smell it. That's what Cologne is for. Which is a whole other topic.

      Whew, that was a GRIND! Starting Monarch next because I have a fleet of the required ships to use for the XP farm. These priority ships are insane to unlock. I only have so many cog chips for her. I guess I need to start shelling out the 8k gold every time her large project rolls around. X_x

      I'm still getting PC crashes. I think its still my RAM, so I pulled another chip out and I'm testing it today. I've been having about 1-2 crashes a day lately and some days none, but the last 2 days its crashed 6-7 times each day. wtf. I'm down to 6gb of ram now assuming the 4 gb chip I pulled out was the bad one. I'd like to buy a new computer at this point, but if it is just the RAM causing these issues I'd be fine with dropping $50 or so on new memory. I just want my PC to be stable. x_x

      Random thought. How much is too much? I remember when I was young, and my parents had adult social gathering with friends, there was Budwiser, Miller, and Coors. Maybe some others here and there. When I came of age the selection got a bit more vast. I don't really drink beer anymore as the constant pissing and bloating isn't worth the small buzz it provides. Holy cow today there is so many damn beers tho. Like 6000 IPAs alone. How do you even decide? Especially if you're as adventurous as someone like me. You'd never be able to settle on a favorite because you want to try something new too much. There is so much that I'd forget something I liked after trying 30 more beers over the course of months. It kinda reminds me of damn yogurt. When I started in the grocery business there was 3 types of yogurt. Breyer's Cream Savers, Yoplait, and store brand. Now there's a 20 foot section of yogurt at every store... and let me tell you... MILLIONS of dollars go in the garbage every year from it going out of date. Its the biggest food waste in America. Anyways. Overall I don't drink anywhere near as much as I use to and when I do its bourbon/whiskey only. I have my tried and true, but I'd always like to venture out and try something here and there when something new would appear on the shelf... but now Bourbon is the same way. WTF My curiosity gets the better of me and I've tried nothing but new stuff the last 3 bottles I've gotten the past year. They've all been pretty good, but nothing mind blowing. I'm going to pick up something new again tomorrow for the kick off of Season 2 for COD. I'll stand there like an idiot for 20 min trying to decide, knowing that I won't be back for another 2 months. By that time 10 new bourbons will be out. I don't know whether to complain about it or be happy that the market is so robust after there was apparently going to be a bourbon shortage according to some reports a few years ago. I don't, and I never will drink cheap. If I can't afford the good stuff I go without. And now that I go through a bottle every 2-3 months rather than 1 a week or two like in my 20s. I'm willing to spend even more per bottle. I tried some Prichard Bourbon last time, it was pretty good but had some sweet tones like brandy I didn't care for too much. I like my bourbon to be rough and tough with that good oaky taste that incinerates your sinuses upon hitting your tongue. Before that I had Clyde May's Alabama Whiskey which was really good. There are a lot of staples that are releasing new stuff I want to try unless its that fruit infused crap. Uh damn Millennials ruining alcohol with there fruit flavors. White Claw is an abomination of mankind and shouldn't exist. /endrant.
