I'll add this about the game, for an alpha build the thing runs amazingly great (already runs better then the final build of BF4).

There is an exploration area I think marked in green that isn't tied to the story. It's this games version of free roam and you can pick up a mission or not if you want. I had a few public encounters while I was roaming solo. One was kill the vip target, a brute sized alien spawns and you have to kill him in a set time limit I couldn't touch the vip with me at level 7 so watch out if he appears.

. . . but I did have a Random pop into my game on the 1st mission that you do (Doughnutsrule, or some such PSN name that had to do with Doughnuts). I ran to him and tried to get him to follow me, but he was more interested in trying out the hover bike and zoomed around that big outside area. So I continued on. As I was headed inside, he came over, we killed an enemy, and I thought we were going to co-op the mission like a true fire team, but he went off back outside while I continued on with the mission inside the radar station.

My point is that encounters with Randoms do occur--it must depend on time you're on and if someone else is in that same area in their instance of the game at the same time.

From a gameplay stand point, I'm basically like Delsin from Infamous SS after he gets his powers: "The only downsides I see are . . . nope, no downsides!"

I'M PHREAKING LOVING THIS!
If you approach someone, get close and hit R3. You can look at their profile, their gear, communicate, and invite them to your fire team.

Best thing so far is that you can do most things solo, without having to depend on a random person to progress or have a good time. Grouping up can be fun but I'm glad it's an option and not a requirement. That being said I did try to catch up to a few peeps on my friends list, wanted to run into them in the open world but I kept missing them. I wonder how many servers are running right now.

So apparently got my invite at 11:30pm last night, but had the PS4 turned off, forgot I had changed my account info, and didn't bother to check while at work. Came home, logged in and found a message from Playstation with my invite. Downloading now, but on a slow ass connection, so likley wont play until tomorrow.

If you are still waiting keep checking, might have gotten it directly on PS4.

Hmm.. I just checked my PS email and it shows a Destiny Alpha code for some reason. I guess I should give it a try. Hopefully it's not too late.

EDIT: I didn't sign up for the Alpha. I see I'm not the only one. It's downloading now. But things must be slow right now since it's showing a 15 minute download time for such a small file. It's only 6.7GB. Usually I see faster download speeds on my FiOS 150/65 connection

EDIT: So when does the Alpha end? It's really too late for me to mess with this tonight. I'll need to check it out tomorrow.

I didn't think to check my ps4 to see if I got an invite. Let's see...

Edit-nope nothing. Signed up Wednesday at 10pm EST. Where do the codes arrive to you guys, personal email, or through the PS4?

I played a campaign mission (solo) and then a few rounds of the competitive multiplayer.

I think the campaign will be fun and with some coop. Obvious reminder is borderlands. The controls felt more sluggish than I liked , but I admit I prefer the lightweight twitch COD feel.

The competitive portion was meh' for me. Every gun fight turned into a space jump dance. The hits it takes to kill someone seemed odd, but maybe I don't have a handle on the equipment yet. I felt like if lay into someone only for them to turn around and one shot me.

This is likely only going to be a game fly rental for the campaign.

The graphics, while not bad at all, weren't anything to praise. It's all sharp and the lighting is good, but it's not a showpiece by any stretch. Might be because of the PS360 support.

Peter Dinklage being the robot/orb thing is great. I didn't know this going in and all I could envision is Tyrion Lannister speaking into a microphone piloting this like its a drone.

Yeah, that was weird, I got an email from amazon, not sony. I did sign up at the site, I'm certain it was before midnight. I never got any confirmation though after I put my name in. It just went back to the same page.

I played last night for a few hours with Ben and Shmoopy. I really enjoyed the game but the missions/campaign got old fast. Not sure if its the alpha/beta or this is going to final. But going back and forth throughout the map for each "mission" got old fast. I know we will have more areas to explore later but the missions need to change a little as well. I don't want to keep going back and forth as that will get old fast. I do agree with some that the fire team needs to be more than 3. Thats just to small for this type of game.

Aside from all that I can see time being put into weapons/armor and in the tower. I am hoping a lot more is added if they expect this game to last awhile. They need to keep making it fresh or it will get old quickly. Looking forward to September.

I only had a tiny bit of time to play. I didn't find any online players but maybe I have to get through the first area. I played until a wizard and had to go. I explored some underground area as well prior and the bad guys disappeared, or maybe they were cloaked and never reappeared.

I wish we had a more interesting environment to play in, something alien looking preferrably.

Graphics are ok. I do like the sounds of the enemies so far. Gameplay feels like a Halo game. I'm hoping there ends up being lots of interesting powers.

Finally got to try it out this morning. I'm surprised how polished it is for an Alpha. Had a lot of fun in the free roam area with missions and randoms.

Was more curious than enthused originally. Now this might be a buy.

Wow, Amazing. I tried your code and it seems to work! I figured since you posted that like an hour ago, somebody would have snagged it long ago. Currently downloading. Thanks so much Mikazaru ! This must be some good karma coming back to me for some kind thing I randomly did for somebody. Sweet !

I can't wait to try this out, and my kids are HUGE Bungie fans, so I know they will enjoy checking it out as well. So much for watching the World Cup...

Why didn't you print the whole message? if you read the whole thing it makes sense.

Hi Anthony1,

Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately you did not meet the requirements to participate in the Destiny™ First Look Alpha. When we read your topic and posts regrading "there are no good games to play in 2014", we were very offended. You knew that Destiny was coming out in 2014, yet all you could talk about is how all the games worth playing are coming out in 2015. So we decided to give your alpha code to someone who is interested in, you know, playing a "good game".
kblee and Epyon415 like this.
