Heads up! https://twitter.com/bungiehelp/status/477524586108428288

If you are in North America and want a Destiny First Look Alpha code for PS4: follow and tweet at this account, then watch your DMs.

Yeah, thanks for the tip! Only noticed the prompt for that today. Maybe it will still turn up. Maybe the system was upset by my PSN account not matching my current geographical location. Someone donated me a Key that seemed legit and that still didn't work.

Played a few hours after work on a friends account though, feels like Halo weapons and movement with a bit of COD style softness to other players in MP. Weapons felt good except the starting shotgun reminds me of the handcannon from Actionquake, point blank or GTFO.

Some dodgyness where the AI stands still staring at you now and then that I assume is lag/back-end hiccups (And probably the reason they need to shake down the servers), but otherwise it seems polished and awesome. Much smoother than some other co-op with AI games I've played.

Seems well beyond "Alpha" but for a few hundred million I imagine someone was smart enough to say "Hey, lets spend 5 times longer polishing this instead of the usual 3 weeks" and it shows.

Much like Halo, it doesn't seem like so much something new as something put together with care, attention and ambition. I've got a post history attesting to my rabid fanboi status but mostly I'm just gutted to miss out on the shared experience as despite having heaps of friends who game, getting them all in one MP session is a pain in the ass that only seems to happen every blizzard, gears of war release, LAN or free weekend of something and this game seems like it would be a sweet co-op jam.

Hmmm, didn't get a key. Must have stuffed up the sign up process somehow.

Wanted to get a taste before plonking down the pre-order, guess I'll wait for post launch feedback now.

At least EA knows how to send me keys! Battlefield Hardon looks alright from what I've seen so far.


Someone was claiming elsewhere that you needed to make sure your sony email address was verified. No idea if that was the case or not...finally got mine last night.

Pretty fun game. Definitely a strong borderlands feel with the shooter/rpg mashup gameplay.

If they succeed in putting out enough content to fill all the gameplay types they're aiming for (sp/co-op/mmo lite/competitive shooter) it could be awesome.
If it lacks content or if the content feels too spread out over all the styles it could get boring quick.

Well, that's one way of marketing. I'd be interested to hear impressions, as I've been pretty down on this both from looking at screenshots and watching gameplay vids. And I say that as someone who is a huge Borderlands fan, a game that was obviously an inspiration for this.

Ouch, sorry. I actually reregistered, as I've still not gotten a code yet (perhaps they've not gone out).

I thought Destiny looked really generic but after reading several positive gameplay impressions from people in the press who have similar taste to mine I have to admit I'm looking forward to checking it out.
