    I'm in both the Alpha and Beta for Destiny. I'll try to posy my thoughts about the game here for anyone interested.

    I've heard very good things... Like a cross between halo and borderlands

    So far pretty good. I feel like I picked up the game at the wrong time in my life though. I'm starting to grow really bored of FPS. So I was bored after only playing it for an hour or so. I wonder if others will have the same issues. This is a game that feels like it should have been made 4 years ago.

    It does have an RPG feel to it. When Dio said Halo meets Borderlands he was spot on. I think that saves some of the monotony of leveling. You'll play a bit longer trying to get another level and then once you "ding" you want to play that current level to test out your new weapons and talents. I do like it though and even in Alpha it looks pretty awesome on the PS4. I haven't played PvP yet. I'm looking forward to doing some of that this week.

    I'm intrigued by the model that Bungie is going to do with it - My understanding is that they are aiming to release a 'new' Destiny every 2 years, and then in the off years produce a HUGE content pack.... and the goal is to support that model for 10 years.

    I'm kind of with you dply - I tried to get back into FPS on my X1 with Battlefield at Titanfall. Both games were fun, but I found that I'm just horrible at them now. I don't have the twitch skills with controllers anymore. I may try and play on my PC and see if I still have skills with the mouse and keyboard. That's why I loved Borderlands so much - it wasn't so much about FPS skill so much as it was about weapons and RPGing.

    This. Back in the day, I could crush a server nearly single handedly playing counter-strike.

    I tried playing it again a year or two ago. Mouse, keyboard, didn't matter. I was horrible. With fast twitch gaming, practice is crucial. I stick to RPGs (the ones that grab my attention) and strategy games these days...

    Hell, i'm even getting worse (a lot worse!) at sports games :lol:

    They need like an over 30 ladder, or maybe matchmaking that matches you based on time played or something

    Yes. So everyone who is playing can understand when you say "got to take this call" or "baby is awake" or "sorry, my SO is making me take out the trash"

    I hoped/knew this would eventually end up here. But I thought you'd hold off posting pictures of your mom until Throwback Thursday!

    That stripper pole is familiar, but photography isn't normally allowed in DBT's basement.

    I haven't forgotten about this thread. I just am unable to get on the servers. Every time I try they are down. I'll be trying all weekend because I have some dental surgery Friday afternoon. But I'll probably be opiated. :lol:

    I have been having fun playing the free version of Ace Combat on PS3 though. That has been nice until you hit the paywalls.
