I'm a die-hard X-men fan and I want Destiny but I have a feeling the game is going to tank hard and it will be available for $20 very soon. Thanks anyway, OP!

Same. I don't have a good feeling about Destiny for some reason. Hope I'm wrong though.

Destiny has $10 credit, that probably wouldn't last if they matched, right? Either way I'm torn because for both of these games the Gamestop pre-order bonus seems like a better value. I'll probably just wait and get them for $30 in a couple months and hope the DLC gets put up for sale on the marketplace by then.

I pre-ordered Destiny at GS for the bonus (and to burn credit), so I'm good there. Spider-Man is tempting though -- I'll hold off to see if it gets matched elsewhere, but this is a good backup.

The last spiderman game was worth the 14.99 I paid for it. I doubt this is worth
$44.95. I'll eventually get this and x men when I play all the AAA titles.

I'm looking for a Shattered Dimensions price drop to 19.99 and I'll pick that up first. Thanks for the links.

Rather buy it in-store for the $25 gift card.

I disagree. I'm digging it so far. But I'd rather have the gift card as well.

Has anyone tried PMing at the store and seeing if the $25 Gift Card shows up too?

Reactions to the game online have been so mixed so far, I think it'd be interesting to poll people who liked and hated it as to whether or not they ever played X-Men Legends.

I'm pretty sure that anyone who hasn't played X-Men Legends would be able to enjoy X-Men Destiny as being a pretty decently entertaining X-Men game...but it's such a step backwards from X-Men Legends (it seriously feels just like Legends, only with less options), that I can't imagine anyone who had played that game not coming away disappointed with Destiny.

Picked mine up today, the $25 gift card was tempting.

Agreed.

Played about 2 hours of it and it's a surprisingly good game! So glad I decided to pick it up.

I got it for the $45 + $10 amazon credit - definitely worth it. Especially if i can flip it this weekend after beating it.

I got that deal too. Sadly I had it shipped home instead of to my campus address so I have to wait til this weekend to play. Definitely planning a quick trade in back to amazon though

The more I progress, the easier it is to get through to the bosses. However, theres one main boss I just don't understand how to kill at the moment. Also, sometimes the framerate dips to unplayable; things just jump around - like 3-5fps. At times cutscenes come out of no where too. for xmen fans it's a rental; such as I plan on doing by flipping it back in. Glad I'm playing/played it; already over it...hoping to break even.

A 7 rating from Game Informer is like a 5 rating from anywhere else. Maybe the game developers didn't grease their pockets enough. Either way that don't impress me much.

Yep this. Bought it tonight with the GC in store, beat it, and put it up on Glyde to sell. If you're a fan, rent it from Redbox for a night or two.

1 playthrough takes about 4 hours.

According to the Gamespot Forums a single playthrough takes between 8-10 hours for a single character for a single scenario.

But you have 3 characters / 3 power sets, and 2 paths (good/evil) each to choose from meaning there are mulitple scenarios to go through which means 48-60 hours to see all the endings.

They're wrong. Look at my gamerscore and raptr.com time. That's also with starting a new mutant to go Brotherhood and playing the first chapter with him, getting 2 of the 5 choice specific achievements I missed going full X-Men. My full playthrough was Aimi w/Shadow Matter. Once you choose your core set of powers right when the game starts, your only other core power choices are what you do when you pull RT and X/Y, and what your passive mutant power is.

Also there's only 2 endings, you have to choose X-Men or Brotherhood before the final 2 chapters, which the final chapter is just 2 boss fights.

i picked up xmen destiny in store @ tru yesterday. they price matched their website and i got the $25 gift card. no manager or anything. the guy did the price match manually and then the register prompted him for the gift card. so i guess it's worth a shot for anyone else thinking about it. after tax it was $48 and change out the door so i figure the game's gotta be worth $23 to me.
