Figured it was time to get an OT going for Destiny since some will be getting in the Alpha this week and Beta on July 17th on PS4.

This is easily my most anticipated game of the year. I loved Borderlands 2 but it left me yearning for something similar, but more serious/epic in tone and without cel shaded graphics.

Here's a 7 minute gameplay video from E3 with developer commentary.

Downloading now. Pretty excited for this as it and No Man's Sky were really the only two games from the e3 conference that made me super excited.

Got my code as well. This is one of my most anticipated games of the year. Not so much for the competitive multilayer but actually for the single player and the open world co-op. If anyone wants to play add me on PSN. PSN ID: QuantamPulse

It's just like Halo with Borderlands powers and damage counters.

Just finished playing for the night. Color me impressed. I I did not expect to much from the alpha but I was blown away. Customization is awesome and the whole thing is gorgeous.

I liked the armor customization and weapons. I liked that they actually visually changed when you equip them. Still not sure what those blue shards are for.

Ok.... After getting into the town and running around the future city in 3rd person mode.... I would love to have a full on space RPG from these guys.

I have a feeling this will sell plenty of copies, especially on PS4 ;)   

 

I maxed out my Warlock, i think Warlock is the best class.

Never really been much of a Halo guy but this was on my radar although nothing I was super excited for... I scored a E3 VIP code and gave it a shot last night and wow I am impressed. Dropped 4+ hrs exploring and doing PvP this is now my most hyped shooter of the year.

Maxed my Titan class and no doubt will max all types this weekend. That ground strike is crazy strong.

Played for about an hour. VERY similar to halo 3, which I poured 400-500 hours into before my 360 died for the 3rd (and final) time. Wasn't too sure about this, but probably going to pick this up now. I would like a new shooter this Fall.

Its basically Halo with other people. The sniper rifle I got and used had an aiming reticle almost straight out of Halo it felt like.

 

Played for a few hours, its not bad so far.

Looking forward to trying the alpha tonight. If it's anything like Halo I'm in.

Even just the alpha has confirmed that this will be a day one pickup for me on PS4. With most of the exclusive not coming out until next year, I could see this game taking up the majority of my gaming hours for the holiday season.

 

The only game I could see competing for my time personally would be DA: Inquisition. At this point though, I am not sure how much I have left in that franchise.

I only got an hour or so in last night, but I'm loving it so far. Looks great and plays just like the combo of Halo and Borderlands I'm was hoping for.

I'm playing as a Hunter currently. Hope to try all the classes this weekend and find the one I like best. I should be able to play all afternoon/evening today.

This game sounds right down my alley (Halo+Borderlands).

 

Will there be clan support? If so, maybe we should consider creating a CAG clan. Alternatively, we can create a CAG group (swap PSN IDs).

It has fire teams based on missions usually 1-3 for most with the strikes having up to 8. Pvp has 6v6 only option right now is control point.

What is max level I see there are items for lvl 20 so if people are lvl 20 after 4 hrs I am in shock.

I think 7 is the highest I saw while playing.

8 is level cap in alpha and of course all my rarez are 10-11. Also PvP interceptor = rape, get there first and hang on.
