I was talking to you and Wes mostly since you two did very well in matches and seem to have a handle on the game but it can be answered by anyone.

This isnt the thread to have this conversation in. So i'll only say this:

Exclusives and the quality of them are subjective, what i might find notable you might not. And yes, PS4 hardware is better. You didnt say that earlier though, you said PS4 is better in every way. which, again, is subjective.

I had edited my post with what I meant to say before you posted.

Destiny alone is also better on PS4.

I tend to rant about things when I smoke, and I have to go anyway. So I will have this debate later if you would like.

Game is straight cash so far, the control game type (although only playable on two maps so far) does not get boring. On the ign live stream they said there would be a surprise for everyone on the 26th. My bro tells me that they might increase the level cap and add another story mission

To start with the gameplay itself, It plays really smooth and there isn't a ton of room for bullshit. It certainly exists, but it's not CoD/Halo level of retardation.

Maps play very well, even the moon map which I don't like has a fairly good flow to it. Overall I'm happy with the direction they're taking the map design in, they don't promote a ton of camping and the games flow very organically, generally you can go anywhere on the map and expect to find people to kill.

To some extent all the guns are viable. So far we've found that the best are the Scout Rifles (Single shot/DMR style weapon), Sniper Rifle, Shotgun for primary usage. Something I think they did that was a good idea was they gave everybody access to heavy/power weapons, but with a catch. You start with no ammo at the beginning of games, and the heavy ammo is VERY scarce. So they weapons are very good, but you rarely use them so they really aren't overpowered. It's like coming across rockets in halo once or twice a game. What's also nice is that when you die the heavy ammo doesn't carry over. So if you pick up some heavy ammo and die, it's all gone. But I've fooled around with a few of the other guns and I have experience getting roasted by some random ones, so if you're good you can get by using whatever you're comfortable with.

The class special abilities are fairly balanced, they're all very good but don't kill the games. They can be a bit annoying at times, though.

What I'm not happy with is the vehicles that are on the Moon map. They're a pain in the ass to kill and are pretty damn overpowered (the biggest one that is). The Sparrow (Destiny's equivelant of a mongoose) is fine, I have no problem with transport vehicles.

There's probably some stuff I missed but honestly there isn't a ton that I dislike about the game. I've had a blast playing it.

Had another sick game a few games ago, I love that I can pull off these kinds of scores pushing hard.

I liked the alpha when I played. My review is 9/10 for two days worth of play.

Rep.

jk.

But really, I'll definitely write something up once I play the beta in a few days. I am really looking forward to it...the alpha was pretty damn fun.

Got my highest kill game in the beta so far, 46 kills. Played with Gunman on here that game, and our team was horrible.

My highest kill game in the alpha was I believe 64 kills? Hopefully I'll pass that in the beta.

One thing is for certain, if you're not level 8 you're not going to win in the crucible.
