The most expensive game ever and I've only just heard of it? Seems to be a crazy mix of Warframe, Defiance, SWTOR, and Planetside. Comes out in four days.

From what I've seen, PVP is dull and the game itself is nothing special. They dumped Halo for this? Still a chance it may appear on the PC at a much later date.

I played the PS4 beta.

The combat is absolutely feckin superb! I mean the best FPS combat you are ever likely to experience in a very long long time. It's Halo on crack...it really is. Top stuff. However...It's nothing new. The core of the game is very small. 1 big-ish area on 4 different planets is all that'll be out at launch. I completed Earth (the first zone) in about 4 days. Also, Bungie have made up loads of little marketing quips to make it all sound like a big new revolutionary thing in gaming, for instance 'aspirational goals'. They've marketed this particular quip to death, but in reality it's simply just levelling up enough to be able to beat harder enemies.

I think the average lowest common denominator gamer, who spends al his time on 2 dimensional games like CoD, FIFA etc will be blown away. It's something new for consoles, that's for sure, but to the rest of us gamers It's nothing that we haven't seen before. I'd give it a 6.5/10

Oh and instead of releasing a full game and adding in content on the fly a-la MMOs...wob wobbbbbb...the're doing it via paid DLC expansions and sequels. So if you want to experience the Destiny, err experience, you'll need to commit your wallet for a good 10 years (which is the lifespan Bungie have given it). It's the newest, latest and greatest gaming swindle.

Apparently they just released a live action trailer for the game (looks like a good TV series?) which is confusing people, because while the trailer has numerous elements that are meant to be funny that same humour is completely missing from the game...

Good taste in classical music though

Kryo, was that a bit of dubstep I knew you'd like that genre

That has worked pretty well for Borderlands I guess, Defiance does it, Guild Wars did it well too so it can work. Not sure about that timescale though. Guild Wars ran for a good few years but 10 is a long time and having invested all that cash do you reckon it will be Playstation 5 compatible? Will it fuck as like!

The console pussies in our office are all wetting their knickers over this one. These are the guys that the hype merchant love the most.

I asked how many of them were still playing Titanfall as they were all gushing over that not so long ago. Funny thing, no one is still playing it

I was surprised to see that my FIFA 14, Killzone and Knack games gave me upwards of 30 quid to spend on trade-in, so thought feck it and decided to give it another chance for 20 quid.

I still stand by my initial opinion after playing a lot more though. The gameplay is great, combat is exhilarating with loads of 'did you see that!' moments. The game itself is a bit threadbare. already halfway through the story after playing it for about 5 hours. In story mode, there's only 2 actual story missions per planet and 2 side story-ish missions. It's worth the 20 quid for a good multiplayer blast and the general combat/gunplay side of things, but not worth much more than that, especially with 2 (TWO!) 20 quid DLCs incoming soon
