GiantBomb review is up, for anyone interested.
Polygon has theirs up now

This is starting to pull lower scores than Watch Dogs.

Hey Roguetad, how did you join my fire team yesterday?  Are you able to just jump in friend games?  When I saw you in-game and waved I thought that was cool, but I thought you would disappear once we got to the no respawn area.  Very cool to do some coop and clear out that dungeon.  So much more fun in a group than solo.
I think you can join into any friends fireteams at any time, no invite required.

I'm favoring Scout/Sniper with grenades/melee, so Dead Orbit actually lines up well.

Pretty much just this, Minecraft with the kids and possibly Elite if my kids monopolize the tv.

Had a good little run yesterday and got a few levels out of doing bounties and a few crucible sessions.  I'm not great at it though, so just like normal.  Teamed up with Harpua for a bit, but ended on a bad note when the servers kept dropping me back to the lobby.

Wow, this is falling on a very busy gaming day.  Dragon Age and Far Cry 4.  Sorry, Rockstar, I won't be double dipping at this time. As much as I enjoyed it on the 360, I would play through again during a dry spell, like I did with Tomb Raider.

And the DLC has been pretty much price locked when on sale to $10. I haven't picked up Dawnguard for this reason.

I'm looking forward to hearing impressions on solo play, since that's likely how I'll be playing most of the game. I'm more interested in the story and the world than anything.

From what I've been hearing, the story is at Diablo 3 levels of crappiness, which is crappy indeed.

Yeah so far it's nothing special. 

so it's like Halo.

All they need now is repetitious level design and we have a clone with a different name!
Imho, it's like Halo in a good way, ie. you have a variety of enemies and their weapons and tactics to beat each one.  It's not as nuanced as Halo though, at least not yet.  The level design is much like Halo was.  Large open areas connected by corridors.  In that way, yes, it's repetitious.  I do miss the large scale vehicle combat though.

Unless I group up with someone near the same level, I'll be playing through the sp missions solo.  I think the strike missions open up at 5 as before I logged out yesterday, I swear I saw one of them available. 

The strike from beta shows on the map from the get-go it seems, but is rank 8 now.  iirc it was 6 in beta.
Ok, that makes sense.  I was a bit tired when I logged out last night, so I must have just missed the level requirement.

If you played the alpha or beta, you know what the core of the game is like, at least early on.  Same levels in fact. 

That Bungie put together as much infrastructure in the mmo aspects without having a server meltdown is a bit of an accomplishment.  I was preparing a post to the effect of how ironic it would be for me to go back to playing Diablo 3 on console when that games PC launch was such a disappointment and now had the same experience follow me, but instead, I've had only one drop due to server connection and didn't lose any progress when I got back in.  It's been very stable and responsive and I've had no issues with lag. 

If you didn't play the earlier access periods, it plays a lot like Halo's combat mixed with a mild Borderlands take on weapons with a more fluid approach to MP where you just kind of run across other players instead of joining a distinct game. 

One question for those of you who went digital.  With the disc, the PS4 install went fast like usual, then I launched so it would pick up on the update file.  After it downloaded that, it launched into another download queue where it got about 15gb of files, plus a separate download.  Did you have the same experience?

The LE box is nice and sturdy and the paraphernalia is interesting.  I've heard that there are more generic codes in the booklet, so expect more of those shortly.

I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm still amazed that either console launched without DLNA support.  I'm not big on using it these days, but I would use it now.

This is pretty much a reskin of Titanfall, so as long as you bought and liked that then you should have a great time with this.

Um.....no?  This isn't anything like Titanfall other than it's an FPS.

I am teasing ATB about his round by round updates of his debate on whether or not to buy Titanfall, with an extra meta level of teasing about him saying he goes dark on games he's anticipating since he didn't do so with Titanfall.  I'm also making the claim that he's so in the dark about Destiny that he wouldn't know whether or not it was a giant robot shooty shooty game.

Well now you ruined it with a lengthy explanation.  I'd like my money back.

Lengthy joke explanations make every joke better!  It's like a laugh track or applause sign; being told when to laugh makes it easier and more fun for you.

I am buying every copy of Destiny, including the digital versions so that ATB can't get a copy. I am even retroactively buying preloaded copies.

Damn you!  Khannnnnn!

Oh wait, you don't need to buy the PS4 copies as ATB doesn't have one.  whew

I still have a pre-order I never canceled on Destiny, and if it comes out to just glowing amaza-crazy reviews I may still consider it.

The reviews will come too late for you to reconsider a pre-order considering the sites are only getting their review copies today. Any sites coming out with reviews before the game's launch should be considered highly suspect.
I read somewhere that the reviews are embargoed until tomorrow morning at 7am pst. You should be able to see some streams before then once the servers turn on sometime today though.

No war.   I have been updating the release calendar, so when I see that Destructor hasn't posted it Sunday night, I fill in for him.

Well, other than a certain person who shall go namelesSLy left out of this post, the rest of the world awaits one of this generations highly anticipated releases.  No, not The Division (delayed), Evolve (delayed), Witcher 3 (delayed), Dying Light  (delayed), Battlefield Hardline (delayed), Arkham Knight (delayed), or GTA V on next gen (delayed?), or everyone's indie hit that keeps on giving Nada.  We have a bona fide heavy hitter this week boyos and it's name is Destiny.  But we also have this year's rendition of the best sport on ice.

So, let's get to it.

PS4
Destiny
NHL 15
Air Conflicts: Vietnam

XB1
Destiny
NHL 15

PS3
Destiny

Played more D3 and got the crusader up to 53 and at the boss fight of Act 3.  Loaded up Minecraft on the PS4 and started up yet another house in a hillside, but this time with my kids playing.  I find it disappointing that local co-op requires you to have PS+ though.

Because maybe he wants it on both?  Then you can play it with people who only have a 360 AND with people who have it on the XB1.  In my case I would much rather buy the 360 version, but have already ordered the XB1.  If I could buy the digital 360 version I can download it on my living room 360, then on my game room 360 and my gf can play on the one I downloaded on first while I play with her on the other one.  Also she can play on the 360 while I play on the XB1 with my friends.

It makes perfect sense, you just aren't seeing it.

It's a non-issue now for two reasons.  One, preload is only on the console you bought it for, ie, I couldn't use the PS3 purchase to pre-load the PS4.  Two, my copy from Amazon is shipping now. 

Oh well, at least the steelbook case will look nice on the shelf.
