I have some gear for other characters, but I plan on just staying a Titan. Should I keep or dismantle it for the parts?

You can now try 'Destiny' for free and carry progress into the full game

Let's say that you aren't among the 3.5 million daily Destiny players, and you want to try the action out for yourself (for free) to see if its worth your investment. Well, developer Bungie wants to make your dreams come true. You can now download a sample version of the game on either generation of hardware and give it a go without dropping $60. Perhaps best of all, any progress made will transfer over to the full game -- something that members of the alpha and beta tests weren't afforded (but would have appreciated thank you very much). So really, there shouldn't be much stopping you from at least giving the former Halo-house's new jam a go by this point. Except maybe your data cap, that is: Sony says the PlayStation 4 trial weighs in at 40GB.

I salvage any gear I had for characters I wasnt going to play.  Good way to get shards/energy for upgrades.  I get like 3 shards from salvaging armor.

i love destiny but these stupid error codes are getting very annoying. i can't complete bounties without being kicked. 95% of these errors have nothing to do with my internet

i can play other games fine without getting kicked & you go onto bungies website to ask for help & get told off by a immature kid

Okay, thanks!

 

As of right now, I am getting DESTROYED in Iron Banner. Played for an hour and never got above .60 K/D ratio. I'm a level 27 and pretty stacked in gear as well.

Haven't played this for almost a month now, is it still a boring grind fest? What does the upcoming dlc add?

It really makes me laugh when people refer to Destiny as a "grind fest", its the same as any other game.

 

I want all the unlocks against a class in Battlefield 4, I have to play for hours as that class trying to get the XP etc to get there or complete tasks to unlock it. If I want that F1 car in Forza 5, I need to put in the hours earning money from races so that I can buy it.

 

If the good stuff was easy to get straight away, where would the fun be!

Not spending hours just to get to the point you bought the game for? I personally dislike that every game has artificially inflated its play-time by adding level progression / unlockables. Most of which (especially in BF4) aren't used for any other reason than exactly that. You don't get matched against people of the same level, it's not actually doing anything than preventing you from having some kind of content unlocked. What is the purpose of progression if you aren't playing with people who are at similar points in that progression?

 

I miss videogames that weren't trying to rob you of hours of play just to get all their content. There have for sure always been games like that in the past but now it is inescapable. And it's infuriating. This is exactly why despite all the BS with MCC's matchmaking I'm willing to wait it out and deal with them. Because it is a game I know I don't have to have had 100 hours in to get everything out of it.

I like Destiny, but I don't love it.  It has not lived up to the hype for me.  I was hoping for some kind of a MMO Mass Effect/Halo hybrid with a story of epic proportions.  Instead I got literally just a couple hours of campaign missions followed by, "The real fight is 'out there' ".  The multiplayer is kind of fun, but outside of that, once you finish the story mode, there's literally nothing to do except do repetitive daily side quests to grind for points to buy better gear, which doesn't even do anything in PVP except for when the Iron Banner is active.

 

I feel like I paid $60 for a game that is far from being a finished product.
