  • Destiny

    Hello every one, I'm oquinn43 but most of you know me as Red Like Roses. I know I do not post on here very often or at all really, I let my guns do the talking and let my name on top of the leader boards serve as an example, but there is something I want to bring up for the Dark Side Alliance. As we all know, the next gen consoles are here as well as some pretty awesome looking games such as Destiny. As of right now there is not a platoon for any of the next gen consoles like the PS4 or XBoxOne yet, and I think that Destiny deserves to be the first on the soon to be long list of games to have such a platoon.

    Destiny is looking to be a success in many ways, It is developed by Bungie and published by Activision, it is a online multi-player action role-playing first-person shooter video game in a "mythic science fiction" open world setting (how can you not love that part?), and it is a whole new realm to spread the influence of the empire.

    I will leave a link you can follow to watch the E3 trailer for this upcoming master piece. http://www.destinythegame.com/media/...new-beginnings. The reviews and pre-orders already tell us this is going to be big so why would we not have a platoon for it?

    I would like to start and lead this platoon in the name of the Dark Side Alliance and for the glory of all that would follow me and the other storm troopers that are already cleaning their blasters in anticipation. You can ask people like JDEZ09 and KuroiStar if I can lead in battle not by orders but by example, if a leader leads form the back they will always get shoot in the ass. I can not do this alone however, a man is only as strong as those beside him. I need you all to show interest in starting a Platoon for Destiny, not just for the PS3 but also for the PS4. We are brothers in arms, following in the foot steps of the 501st, let our fires burn bright and our shields not falter so that our swords may strike true.

    And true they shall strike fellow comrade,

    I here agree with his zeal for the new game. I see some similarities between destiny and Dust that offer the type of deep, embedded experience that we looked forward to with these types of games.

    So I like the proper anticipation shown here, and I for one share the same excitement. I had not pre-ordered the game until I had the chance to get my hands on the alpha. It was exactly what I wanted to see from it, so much that I couldnt see myself passing up the chance to get into the beta. I have already paid in full for my digital copy. So next month, I can expect to hit the beta hard and full fledged with those who will stand with me.

    These next gen releases have been okay so far, but not entirely spectacular, however..

    Destiny is looking to be one of those over-the-top experiences. I want to give a shoutout to the DSA XBOX crew that has enjoyed bungies superb development over the years. It will be an honor to finally get the chance to play a game from the developers that have brought you all much joy and entertainment. I see on Bungies website that the xbox players are mostly welcoming the sony gamers into the community, and I believe that this type of game can really bridge our gaming passions in ways that most other games couldn't. I am noticing it already.

    As for the platoon, I would definitely like to see how well we can shape up a group of guardians. It will be interesting to see how each of our unique playing styles will complement one another both in the PVE realm, as well as coordinated multiplayer matches.

        Glad to see you're interested in leading. I'm sure we'll have something planned for Destiny depending on how many DSA get it. It doesn't seem like a competitive multiplayer game, but it will be fun nonetheless.

            Damnit. I actually am gonna have to retake that statement. Come to find out that the initial announcement was not supposed to be worded that way. Playstation plus users will have access to the crucible, multiplayer action while all other beta owners will have access to only the co-op strikes, just like how the alpha was.

            Video explination of what took place today.



            Looks like they jumped the gun on all of the article posts. I am not sure if this goes for the ps3 side of the beta, but from what Im gathering, the pre-order is still needed after all for access to the beta.

              This is an in-depth interview with Bungie's community manager for Destiny. Lots of good questions answered, especially CLAN Structure.



              Imagine that a DSA member can specialize in a couple of subgroups within our Destiny clan.

              So as stated here, the Dark Side Alliance can have our own Guild, with specific specialized platoon names within our guild for example (hypothetic).

              The Dark Side Alliance: (DSA)
              -- Dark Side Crucible Elite
              (slayers squad of high ranked DSA, best overall skilled players)

              -- Dark Side Strike Operations Unit
              (PVE specialists)

              -- Dark Side Marksman Elite
              (Snipers unit, Can assist the strike ops team during raids and multiplayer)

              -- Dark Side Stormtroopers
              (General Infrantry learning the ropes and/or earning their spot in other specialized groups as well)

              -- Dark Side "Berzerkers/Fetts"
              (Can protect other subgroups by focusing on the dirty work, such as AV or Machine gun support on the frontlines. They are always on the hunt for heavy ammo when it is made available)

              -- Dark Side Hunters
              (Registry of the hunters in DSA)

              -- Dark Side Titans
              (Registry of the Titans in DSA)

              -- Dark Side Warlocks
              (Registry of the Warlocks in DSA)

              Brainstorming for specialization or more generalized groups
              -------------------------------------------

              So it looks like there is going to be an organized clan system (like planetside 2) that can be adjusted as we see fit. According to whatever scale of organization we will need.

              Some Crucible maps are 6v6 while others are twice the size. So when we roll out in our space cruizers, we can organize our squads to be very well rounded by having these various roles to choose from.

              -----------------------------------

              PVE is hopefully going to allow for more of us in each squad soon, with a possible multiple squad effort for raids and freelance journeys on the different planets.

              Multiplayer gaming will call for advanced strategy and coordination. Having that sniper unit on certain maps can help the stormtroopers move in with cover while the elite squads can handle other objectives with the skill to work other parts of the map effectively on their own.

              Each squad can be assigned a berzerker, who has dedicated their role for specialized frontline ability to take out vehicles and supress zerg rushes with their machine guns. In Destiny, vehicles are a huge pain in the ass if your team is not prepared for them. Staying close together is going to benefit our team if we have all the right pieces.

                So now that the Alpha has come and gone, we have learned a huge amount of information about the three classes to choose from in Destiny. Each with their own strengths and special abilities.

                Choose wisely
                ----------------------------------------

                Titan Class: Striker

                ----------------------------------------
                Warlock Class: Voidwalker

                ----------------------------------------
                Hunter Class: Gunslinger

                ----------------------------------------

                I announce that I will choose the hunter class. Note that the subclass in each type of guardian can be changed to a different subname at higher levels.

                Knowing what each one does before the games release will help our DSA brethren/Sisteren feel right at home the moment they first play the game. Whatever your choice may be, we can all compliment one another's playing styles, to lead us to victory.

                  I think I'll be part of the Berserkers with The Titian: Striker as we all know that is my style on DUST514! Rush in and rip heads off lol!

                    Sounds good. Titans take quite alot of damage when you upgrade the armor to full capacity. Ive seen them take out a whole squad with their smash attack. Youre gonna have alot of fun with that.

                      I know right?! This Titian is like a character that I played in a side scroller action game before. The character in DNF (the game that I played) also had a move that is exactly like the Fist of Havoc

                        When I played online multiplayer in the alpha, titans took the longest time to kill. They weren't nearly as fast as the other types, so it might fit your playing style from DUST really well.

                          Keeping it fresh here,

                          Subscribe to this thread to hear about more news, developments and gameplay videos as the release draws nearer and nearer.

                          First video: A quick explination about the timed exclusive content coming to Playstation consoles. This helps clear up any questions that people may have about the time gap.



                          -----------------------------------------

                          This has been under speculation to be one of the hardest final levels in all of gaming. Best part is, were gonna have to beat this thing together. Be excited.



                          So when we do beat the game, its possible that it is only the beginning. I gotta say I like the sound of that.

                          -------------------------------------------

                          Neebs from battlefield friends brings "Recon" aka Thick44 to try to explain destiny alpha footage but sucks at it lol. Recon chooses the warlock class.



                          He brought up a good point about the warlock in that if you dont double jump fast enough, you just fall back down. Some footage of this seen here. I hope the jetpack for that class can be adjusted to be better at higher levels. I hear that my hunter class can get triple jumps later on , can't wait for that!

                              I am very interested in this game. I've played most all of the Halo series games and loved them. I will more than likely purchase it for the XBOX One. Anybody else going to get it on the XBOX side of the house?
