Bungies "Destiny" - Page 3

post #101 of 4274

I'd appreciate one of the PS4 codes, if you've still got them.  Mongycore, looks like someone's already nabbed your PS4 code.

post #102 of 4274
Here's 3 PS4 ones up for grabs:

EEJL-DQNB-3EA9
ER6B-RFN5-8ABQ
TMKN-M2N5-N6EA

I'm really confused. If you have to purchase the preorder to be able to redeem the code, what's the point of giving away more than one code?
post #104 of 4274

Money for preorders, and hype from having extra people playing the beta.

Right, but when I try to redeem these codes, it tells me I need to purchase the full game first. How are extra people playing?

I'm sure I am missing something.
post #106 of 4274

Hm, that is weird. There's nothing outside of the code that would establish that the game was pre-ordered.

post #107 of 4274
Never mind. I figured it out. I didn't see the "Redeem Codes" PSN option before downloading the beta.

ETA: thanks, Shaun!
post #108 of 4274

You still need one, Azazel?

post #109 of 4274

I used Shaun's second code - so Michael can ignore my PM.  Thanks guys!  Weird that the 13 Gigs downloaded in about 3 minutes

post #110 of 4274
Sorry--I should note I used Shaun's first code.

Sure do, all the ones that getposted around seem to get used up in micro seconds, so a pm may be best.

post #112 of 4274
That last one of mine should still be good, unless someone ganked it. Tell me if it doesn't work and I can get 6 more.
post #113 of 4274

Couldn't get the last one to work, kept getting the "incorrect or not valid error."  Do we know if these codes are region specific at all?

post #114 of 4274

I think they are region specific.

post #115 of 4274

I think I have a bias in favor of this game that I didn't know I would have...  I've been playing the beta in short bursts here and there and it hits me in a nerdy place that makes me happy.  I guess the Bungie cloud looming over this is already making this seem like a pretty special game.  And in the end, if it is all an illusion of my Halo-addled mind, then I'm not gonna care, because the chemicals in my brain are going to be too busy firing fun juice for me to notice. 

 

ETA: Also, not that it matters much anymore, but I'm not sure if I have other beta codes (or ANY really) to share.  I did a pre-order direct from the PS4 AFTER the beta had already started.  I waited to see if I'd get an email with some codes, but got nothing.  I eventually just went back to the PS4 and tried to download the beta and was able to do so.  I didn't redeem any codes or anything, so it must all have been tied to my PSN account in one way or another. 

post #116 of 4274

Does anyone here no the point of Grimoire cards/points? I'm assuming they're just like Steam collectible cards.

post #117 of 4274

No one really knows what the cards are for. We'll see...

 

I have one more Xbox 360 code if anyone wants it.

post #118 of 4274
Got an email saying they finished early and the beta is back up. See you on the battlefield!
post #119 of 4274

Currently at 50% on the X360 download! Thanks to Shaolin!

No problem man! FYI - the Beta is live for everyone right now, XBL and PSN users! I probably won't be on until tomorrow because of my job. But if you are on Xbox 360, my Gamertag on there is SnakeEyez601

post #121 of 4274
I used Shaun's third code just now. Thanks Shaun!
post #122 of 4274

Not entirely sure how it works, but I believe I have 2 PS3 codes to give. PM me if you need one.

 

It's pretty fun so far. I'm horrible at aiming with sticks, I could barely get through Halo 3 on Medium difficulty, forget about going online. The super auto-aim and default sensitivity feels nice in this though.

 

The PS3 graphics are kinda hilarious, but that wasn't unexpected. With the fuzz-filter they use, everything more than 3 feet ahead of you looks like it's made out of voxels. Character models are detailed when you get up close for melee, though. It runs relatively stable, more than I expected, so I can't complain. Still, it's basically a derezzed tech demo of the PS4 version.

post #123 of 4274

I've got two extra PS3 codes if anyone wants em. Gotta say I'm really impressed with Destiny. Can't wait to see what the full game brings. Lets get a couple PS3 people together for a fire team when this shit comes out and do some damage.

post #124 of 4274

Hey guys, Bungie opened up the beta to everyone! No codes needed anymore, just download it and get to it!

post #125 of 4274

Play tomorrow after 4pm Central and you'll get some kinda special emblem. Lame, but free. I imagine they're wanting to push the servers hard with a high turnout.

post #126 of 4274

So after watching my son play some I played a Hunter up to level 5. It's not really bad, but mostly it makes me think I should play through Borderlands again. So many reused passages and textures and areas, and every time I'm in the open world I genuinely get the very MMO feeling that I'm looking at a 3D version of a bunch of us rushing to Hogger. From what I've seen so far it just feels short of charm and fun and a little too heavy on the MMO-ness.

 

I do like the group quests that pop up though, I first saw those in Warhammer Online and they should be a staple of MMOs at this point. They're such a great way to make you feel like a part of a group experience even when you're just messing around alone.

This is pretty much my take on it, as well. It feels like MMO-lite, with almost non-existent story and plot (which may just be limited here because it's in beta, and they don't want to give too much away).

 

The gameplay mechanics are solid, upgrading your character is fun, but it's ultimately junk food in an attractive (if increasingly dull as time passes) presentation. Fun diversion for the weekend, but I'm pretty set on not needing to play the full release.

post #128 of 4274

Also, as a died in the wool PC elitist only in regards to FPS the aim is extremely forgiving. More than a few times now I've fired a headshot when I knew I wasn't quite on target because I knew the game would give it to me.

post #129 of 4274

Oh, yeah. I played a Hunter, and I was starting to feel like McAvoy in Wanted, whipping headshots around without even having to use the scope.

I fired this post off on another thread, but...if anyone is on the XBone and wants to hit up some Raids at some point, shoot me a friend request.

Here's the awesome live-action Destiny trailer that dropped yesterday.

 

Picking this up on Tuesday and honestly can't believe that it's time. Very curious to see how the public takes to this game.

So I just found out some cool news over on Bungie's site. If you purchase the digital copy on any current gen system you can download it free to the corresponding next gen system. A friend of mine hasn't picked up an Xbox One yet, but now I can play on both. And I'll have the same stats and character on both systems. They have a FAQ here: http://www.destinythegame.com/digital-upgrade
post #133 of 4274

I'm thisclose from pulling the trigger on a Xbone.  The deals they are having are insane.

I really wish I had seen that before buying the PS4 version yesterday.

Remember, that's only because they scared off their entire customer base with their bullshit.

Well, then it's great for the consumer. 

 

 

Besides the idiot that said "Deal with it"  who is fired, I kinda liked where it was originally going.  Even more so now when everyone is going digital anyway.

We now have a CHUD Destiny clan: Brotherhood of the Sewer. Open to PS and Xbox people. Will send out some invites if bungie.net will let me, but if you don't get anything submit a membership application and shoot me a reminder so I can approve you.

Fantastic! Thanks, Worky!

post #139 of 4274
I have no idea what's the deal with these card things, but you can copy/paste the codes from this SITE onto bungie.net code redemption for Destiny and it'll unlock cards/emblems for when you play the game. Pretty quick and easy, but you'll have to deal with bungie's web portal being hammered right now.
post #140 of 4274
Thanks for that Worky. I'll try tonight. Anyone know if the servers are worldwide or are they hived off into regions?
post #141 of 4274

bendrix, you're in. flint, are you Yellowhare (I'm useless at keeping up with handles)? If so, you're in too. Probably won't get to look again till tomorrow night so if anyone else sends in a request before then, apologies in advance for the wait.

 

As for the servers, there are regional ones (Even here for once!) but I don't think that would affect the clan setup at all.

post #142 of 4274

There is only one Hare. And it is I.

post #143 of 4274

Ah, cheers Shaun. You be in, sir.

 

Also as a general note: as mongy pointed out, bungie.net is flaky as hell at the moment ( I suppose the launch day jitters had to set in eventually) so people might want to leave it till later if they want to put in a request.

post #144 of 4274

I'm so jealous of you guys. I wish I could join in the fun on my PC.

 

I guess Destiny was never meant to be.

Nope, still RedFlint. Don't think I'm on anyone's friends lists here... *sniff*. I'll try and apply when I get home.

You shouldn't have any problems joining the clan, these things usually aren't friends-dependent. Also just sent you a friend request on PSN.
 

Am currently writing up some day-one impressions which will go up later. For now I'll say this though: this game is riddled with flaws, but damn it's fun. Am sitting at work and all I want to do is go back and play more.

My roommate just got this game for PS4, so I may join up with you guys...

post #149 of 4274
Spider Tanks. Fuck.

I am not at the point where I can take on missions above my level.

Having fun, though.
