After having played the game for a good few hours now, and apparently reached the level cap (8?), I can't really say it's a bad game but I don't understand why people would get excited about it. My preliminary impression was that the game felt very chopped up, but then I got to the open-world part and it has some good potential. Although I bet that's the part of the game most people will like the least. The thing I just don't get is what's supposed to be the hook. For a loot game it's really lacking, for a shooter it's good but nothing special, for an open-world game it's average at best and the story is nothing to write home about.

I've yet to do any of the real multiplayer stuff though (no ps+), but I guess I'll check that out sometime before the beta ends. I'm guessing that's what's hooking people ? The good old "play game with friends, game gets good". But when compared to similar games I can't see what makes it more interesting than say Borderlands. At best I would say it's Warframe with better combat, but that's not really saying much.

I did (as mentioned) enjoy my time running around in the open world clearing missions though, but that's gonna grow old fast. The more I think about it the more I come back to my old wish of the game being completely seamless. Remove the tower (which just feels like a convoluted menu anyways), make the story missions and strikes trigger by entering the areas and have some pvp enabled battlefields you could enter. It would make the game feel more cohesive over-all and would vastly improve the "open-worldness" of it all.

This times a million. Still waiting for someone to prove me wrong though, I'd love to have my mind changed and subsequently blown by how rock-my-socks-off awesome this game is... just hasn't happened yet.

After the Alpha i jumped into Defiance which is the only thing i could find which is an MMO shooter to get a feel of what missions could be like, and of course budget and quality aside its fun but i grew bored quickly. Why? No cover, no environmental destructibility and the challenge just wasn't there(just like Destiny). It was very left trigger, right trigger reload. Destiny could be more than what its showing, but hanging onto last gen has limited itself, but made the sequel what it should be this year. Does graphic quality alone justify a full price game vs ftp, or does a high res Borderlands excite you is the question? As for me ill skip and pick it up it a year or 2 at half price.

Maybe back when i was younger, but anything i start i always finish, on hard difficulty. The REAL minority in games today.

The answer always and will be Dungeons and Dragons.

I like more content, but most of it feels like filler. IF they would actually take interest in what they are showing, thats different, but i would guess a majority will never be played beyond the QL.

Agree. Nicely said. I ve been pretty much playing a ton of Ghost recon Phantoms, and its all strategy . I usually lay down and watch the flank or ill jump ahead. Its about position and team, and most of all fun.

Hard. I dont know the reason to play if there isnt any difficulty.

I will give Lebron this, and only this he as at least been an athlete in these days that has carried himself with class on and off the court. As for his move back to cleveland, it more of just about him trying to reach that MJ love he so elusively tries to get every day. That is always going to get in the way of reaching that legend status. A great player, but not a leader.

Just thought about something else, this will also show how mediocre Spoelstra is as a coach. Guess he and Riley wont look so "genius" after this year. There is nothing more overrated in sports than exec and coaches.

All i know is when i saw the price on steam for pre orders, i was befuddled. I thought this was a kick-starter indie game? I guess not, but ill still wait until its in my $$$ wheelhouse of 15-20.
