  1. Im sure somebody at 343 thought the same thing about advanced mobility. Maybe it's a Halo game focusing on battlefield sized matches but in the style of traditional BTB. But I doubt it.
  2. Yeah. I edited my post because I didn't really do justice to the whole situation from Marty's perspective.
  3. If you haven't already heard: Music of the Spheres, which is both the "musical prequel" and the full soundtrack to Destiny we were supposed to get, composed and ordered by Marty and Michael who both consider this their finest work, has finally leaked after 5 years of Activision and Bungie refusing to release it out of NOTHING but spite. This is the Music Activision removed from the very first E3 trailer. This removal was when Marty had finally had enough of Bungie bowing to Activision's every whim. This is the music that ultimately led to Marty being fired as he fought for Bungie's artistic integrity. EDIT: Credit for leak goes to Reddit users OS_Epsilon, Tlohtzin123 and the anonymous holder of one of 100 CDs given to Marty's family and friends. Marty himself expressed in a tweet that he finally was able to tell his 93 yo father this Christmas, who has heard it and had always wanted the music to be public, that this was now the case. In a email to Kotaku he also expressed that his mother who had passed a few years prior and who was also a musician, never understood why it wasn't released to begin with. This isn't just a great moment for gamers, this an amazing moment for Marty and his family. Please enjoy this small but amazing piece of the the Destiny we could and should have experienced. https://youtu.be/WYz3tQb77y4
  4. Watch his arguments with Favyn if you wanna waste some time and some braincells when you are short on cash.
  5. I don't know what is worse, xGLLx videos or the comments on his videos. Him and his entire fanbase are the comical stereotype of a "343 hater" that just hurt the community as they spout incoherent and illogical misinformation due to a total lack of understanding of what they are outraged about.
  6. That's not what I took from that piece at all and I agree with everything he says. The AI in games like Destiny and Warframe are boring because they are easy to kill, not becuase they are literally stupid (which to be fair was poor wording on my part). If I compare Destiny AI to Halo AI, I can think of plenty of similarities in their flanking and behaviour. The issue with Destiny (and Warframe) AI is that they aren't a threat. They are almost all trash tier mobs (grunts/jackals) that die quickly, move sluggishly and kill you slowly. Destiny and Warframe are like playing a prequel movie where the Jedi are invincible gods against machines *designed specifically for combat*. I never feel in danger so the combat is without weight. It's hard to buy that the Vex are super powerful when I can take on 20 at time and not even struggle. I'm not asking for super tactical AI that have the the art of war and decades of combat experiance programmed into them, I'm asking for AI that can do more than tickle me. Instead of 20 sluggish Vex that individually tickle me, give me 10 somewhat evasive Vex who can actually kill me 1 on 1 so I have to pick my battles. Give them slower projectiles that I can dodge. MAKE ME FEEL ENGAGED IN THE COMBAT. 20 grunts on easy Vs 10 skirmishers on heroic, what would be more engaging to play against? I think it's a simple answer. Furthermore, what Halo (and Borderlands) got right was the variety. you have the sluggish fodder in grunts, the evasive fodder (skirmishers/drones/jackals), the "tanks" (Hunters, Cheiftans, Generals), the jack of all trades (Elites/Brutes) and so on. On top of that, different enemy ranks have different abilities and evasive levels. Destiny and Warframe mostly have grunts, grunts with more health then grunts with even more health and a shield.
  7. "The abilities change the game but you gotta adapt" Spoken by people that the game changed for because they couldn't adapt. https://goo.gl/images/DUM7K8
  8. I'm talking purely about gameplay. Its not about MMOs or that style in particular as I love Borderlands, which looked at in a vacuum is a similar premise. There's something about the lack of life in Destiny and Warframe AI that just makes them boring to kill over and over that isn't present in Borderlands.
  9. Played Warframe for some time, untill I could play endgame content and frankly I think it has many of the same issues as Destiny. To name a few: Boring, repetitive and grindy gameplay/content. ******** hordes of AI instead of smarter small groups. Stupidly easy except when it isn't then it's just annoying because it's hard for the wrong reasons AND the AI is boring to fight. The only AI that was fun to fight was the Stalker guy who drops dread. Games like Destiny, Warframe and Diablo are the gaming equivalent of chasing the dragon.
  10. You have made a grave but fixable error. Step 1: Take it back Step 2: Pick up the Witcher 3 with all expansions Step 3: Present it at Christmas instead Step 4: lose communication with your Dad for at least a month.
  11. In PvP? Not really. R1 spam can get you plenty of cheeky kills because it's still far to effective. As well as the roll, estus and parry spam. The video is a great comedic exaggeration of the genuine issues with Dark Souls 3 PvP.
  12. Sigh..... That, that is such an accurate depiction of DS3 PvP outside of fight clubs and arena.
  13. The only other one I can think of is Destiny which is hardly a good example.
