I haven't picked it up because the beta was really underwhelming and I'm glad I waited for impressions, because I think I'll pass. It feels like a step backwards from Bungie's Halo games in almost every way.

The gun play doesn't feel as good and the combat encounters are so much less dynamic as the enemies seem completely mindless from everything I've played and seen. The multiplayer wasn't fun as it was stuck in a no mans land between CoD and Halo. Story wise and delivery, at least it felt like someone was trying with Halo. Mission design, it also feels more sterile but I don't really know why. It might mostly have to do with level design as the destiny planets just feel like fancy combat arenas.

RPG elements are also lack luster, so they don't really make up for the other short comings. Skills and leveling seem pretty inconsequential. Loot has no variety, every person I've watched may as well have been using the same three or four primary weapons.

Definitely going to pick this up at some point. Too much on my plate right now, but looks cool!

WHy is it so late?

Guests occasionally are fine, like one every few years, but they need to keep a steady cast.

Why does it seem like everyone forgets about the helicopter game that Flappy Bird was obviously inspired by? http://www.play-helicopter-game.com/

Flappy Bird wasn't ripping off Endless runners, it was ripping off of a game from 2000.

Yeah, he was giving flappy bird way to much credit.

All I heard was middling things prior to release, but I was still hoping it turned out. Oh Well!

Looks decent, might pick this up since I need something to play on my xbone and ps4 since halo seems like shit.

Guess I'll wait for #DRIVECLUB on PS4

If they release it with the # in the title, I won't buy it.

Looks alright, but I'd never watched any gameplay besides a few snippets before and didn't realize how much of a Defender clone it is. I was hoping it would be a little more like Geometry Wars. I'll play it since I'm getting it with PSN+.
