Destiny [P1]

After long thinking about what game to write about next, I came to my decision... Destiny! It's a console MMO, and I am sure you all have heard of it. In this post I am just going to give my first impressions. Each of them I went out and bought the Destiny bundle for the PS4. I was looking for something new and exciting.The game has 3 classes, Hunter, Warlock, and Titan. having sub classes as well. The most important part of the game for me so far, is the time consuming fun. Sure it's a sort of grind fest, but I haven't gotten bored with it. (Maybe it's because I am always with my friends, most of the time at least)


(The reason I got it for the PS4, and not the Xbone, was because my college buddies all have it for the PS4). For those of you who don't know about Destiny. It was created by Bungie, the people behind the Halo Franchise, and published by Activision. As of right now it is a console only game. (360, Xbone, Ps3, Ps4). There will probably be a PC release in the future, but I am not for sure on that. So why did I chose Destiny as my next game of choice? Well, a lot of my college buddies talk very highly of it, and have explained to me enough information for me to go out and buy a new system, and the game. (Bundle). My first few story missions were a blast, I haven’t played a console FPS since battlefield 3 for the xbox 360. So it was a new, but very familiar experience. I don’t think I would call Destiny a full blown MMO, I would probably call it MMO-Lite. Why exactly? Well, it’s not as massive as you could say FFXIV, or World Of Warcraft. Sure you have raids, and you can find random people during the maps and missions, but it’s nothing like going to a full Stormwind during peak hour.


Nevertheless the game is a ton of fun so far. “Josh it’s just your normal grinder: Sure is. I play the game for the fun factor, even if the game is a grinder, if the fun factor is there, I sure as hell will play it. I’m writing this in a different style to test it out and see if I like it better than the old way. Apologies if this post seems scrambled and misplaced a lot. I’m still improving on it. As you know I don’t really join hype trains anymore, due to the fact that it mostly leads on to the downfall of a game, and didn’t live up to the hype. All of my college buddies feel like the game was a huge let down, because they followed the hype train, and you know the believed it. Most of the people actually feel like that. Luckily I didn’t, and I sort of knew what to expect, but at the same time I didn’t. I hope you follow me on that. So I have my friends who talk highly of the game, then the people who are all “Eh” about it, and then the people that hate it. I don’t fall into a one of those right now, but I will say I am really loving the game as it is right now.


I guess you could say I’m used to the grind, not because I play a lot of MMOs, but I play a lot of Diablo III, and Path Of Exile. Known action RPGs, that have that repetition of a grinding game. If a grinding game such as these games have the fun, challenging factor then I can be okay with the grinding. (It goes a little different with full fledge MMOs of course). My final question I asked myself for I end this post is how much content am I going to be able to write about a grinding game? I guess it comes down to what I nit pick out of drafts and such. I think i’m going to do more live streaming rather than talking about the game. (On twitch). I still will write enough blogs to get my writing needs in, but I think I will be streaming when I do raids/strikes. I’ll let you all know down the road on what’s going down, and where it’s going down at.


My questions to you all though, is… Have you played Destiny? If so, what system, and what is your opinion on the game? Bad or good, I would love to hear what you all have to say about the game. Even if you haven’t played it and watched someone else play, please give your opinion. Till next time! Cheers!

Nice post man, I like where you state "I guess you could say I’m used to the grind, not because I play a lot of MMOs, but I play a lot of Diablo III, and Path Of Exile. Known action RPGs, that have that repetition of a grinding game. If a grinding game such as these games have the fun, challenging factor then I can be okay with the grinding." because I basically said the same thing to myself when all the hatred was popping around not having everything right away and not wanting to just play the game how it is. 

I played from release on ps4 =) and have loved every minute of it. I have a buddy I play with and ended up joining a clan too just to actually be able to access the community. I do think it's a little weird that I have to go to the forums to communicate. Anyway, I don't raid to much and really did mostly purchase it for the Crucible and that's where I've spent most of my time. The world is great and all that, story of course is short for now but the crucible is exciting for me and pvp has always made me stick around and be more sociable in MMO's. Hope you're having fun and I have a feeling it can only get better with updates to the story and world so enjoy yourself!! =)
