Destiny 2 Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2018 by getbent57

Played the open beta for Destiny 2 when it was out last summer (July 2017).  Back then like the smooth movement but it was very boring to play.  Felt very generic.  Well gave it another try now that is one of the free game for PlayStation Plus members (September 2018).  The open levels of the game are the same from the beta.  Forced myself thought that again.  Wanted to see what happens after that.  Once you get passed that the game becomes much better.  Only played about three story missions and one public event.  Must say this was very fun.  Think I will be keep playing it.  Well until Red Dead is out.  If you are a PS Plus member and have the hard drive space (80 GB’s or so) it’s well worth the download.

Destiny 2 Open Beta

Destiny_2The early access beta for Destiny 2 has been on going since July 18, 2017.  Tried to get into that but not luck.  Filled out a from on GameSpot.com for a chance to win.  Well it is know big deal.  Because the open beta for PS3 and Xbox One runs from July 21 to 23, 2017.  I do believe you can pre-download the file.  Which is about 13GB.  Plan to give the beta a try.  Remember the first games beta.  While I thought it was cool.  Just never sold me on the game.  Destiny 2 looks a lot better.

[Update] Gave it a try.  The beta let you play an opening mission.  Once that finish that you can play the co-op raid or the deathmatch modes.  Didn’t try those.  Just wanted to see how the main game felt.  Well it felt like your standard fps.  The movement was nice a smooth.  That’s the only good thing I can say about it.  It just was pretty standard and boring.  Am sure the full game will have lots to offer.  But it is not for me.

DestinyYesterday (July 24, 2014) spent part of my day watching Now Playing on GameSpot.com.  They have a two part video were three people playing the Destiny Beta.  Part one > here (or below).  Part two > here (or below).  Wanted to watch these because have been interested in this game every since they show it off a few years ago.  After watching the videos the game looks really good and fun.  They were giving way codes to the beta when they lived streamed those videos.  The other way to get into the beta was to pre-order the game.  Not a fan of pre-ordering games.  Only did that once and it was a waste of money.

Before I went to bed that night.  Took a look at the GameSpot’s new section and there is an article > here saying the beta is now open to every one.   Provided you have PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold.  The beta is on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.  The beta is set to end Sunday night (July 27, 2014).  This is awesome news.  So before going to bed fired up my PS4, went to the PSN and started the download.   The file is about 10GB and then about 15GB when installed.  One of the great new features the PlayStation 4 has, is standby mode.  So you can download, change up the controllers stuff like that with out leaving it fully powered up.  So that is what I did.  let it download and install overnight.

Thought the game look really good in the videos but it’s even better in person.  The controls are nice an smooth.  The shooting is really fun. The RPG elements are pretty sweet as well.  About to reach level 4 as I am typing this post.  You can play the game by yourself but it is all so co-op.  Think you can team up with two other people (may be more).  Can’t wait to play some more.  The game will be out September 9, 2014.  Think I might just buy this game.  There are some may good games coming out this fall it will be hard to decided what to get first.
