Finally got Destiny beta downloaded and have been playing on it. It's a little bit prettier than the alpha version and they've added in cut scenes to expand on the story line. The missions get a little more fleshing out and there's still that damn four legged robot thing which takes forever to destroy. With two strangers and a lot of dying, finally managed to take it down then followed the other two for a continuation of the mission. Even if you're not in a group, it will run the mission like you are in a group, so everyone present gets the accomplishment when mission is done.
Welp, the beta lasted a weekend, level cap is at 8. Thought the alpha level cap was higher than that but honestly don't remember. It had more story, at least, and I think I'll keep the pre-order up on Amazon, mainly because I can charge it to the Amazon card and pay it off in chunks. The beta is of course lasting longer than a weekend but I've maxed out the cap and only other thing to do is PVP which every fucking game does, so it's nothing special at all. I'm more into co-op missions than counting player kills.( Skyrim wanderings...Collapse )
Gamestop is offering a damn sweet deal for The Last of Us PS4: turn in your PS3 copy and get a $25 credit, making the remastered version $25. I, lacking reading comprehension, went in today to check it out and found out it doesn't start til the 27th. The manager took a cursory look at the disc and was ready to do the exchange so...I can switch my faulty game for a brand new game. Most likely it only needs to be properly cleaned to work. And I can get a new version with DLCs and pretty graphics, plus Naughty Dog is claiming it will release more DLC. Probably maps, big deal. I'd rather have a co-op mode or even insert Clickers into a mode to make it more interesting.
