I always automatically assumed it was an old Quakeworld clan, I knew of a S.I.D. Destiny so it was one of those automatic things, I didn't stop to think it might be a nick.

If anyone gets a spare EU Destiny key (I hear people are getting 3) I'd be grateful for a PM.

Edit: Got one, thank you

I was going to ask for one too but then I remembered I don't have PS+ so couldn't play it anyway

As opposed to, in Borderlands, find weapon, pick it up, use it right then. I didn't try the online, though. Actually I thought it was supposed to be a game where others just showed up, but I guess that's not really the case. It's possible I didn't play the fun part, but I sure hope they have big plans for improving the single player as it was pretty bad.
The Tower is a bit disjointing, as far as pace goes. It switches to Mass Effect mode for some reason and as you mentioned the load to get there is pretty long. Finding they reuse areas a bit too much too, and even though there's aspects of the past through the storyline the environment itself doesn't really have a story of its own to tell (although pretty). I liked the feel to gunplay but I didn't overly enjoy the enemies and outside they seem to respawn at Far Cry 2 rates which kills feeling of that immediate progression. Bike is cool but super vulnerable.

There is a lot of Warframe in here as well, the main missions feel more like side missions and everything's comes across like a compendium of things to do rather than anything overly engaging. For a beta it's pretty generous, there's some parts I enjoyed but soul and pacing are lacking.

Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong thread.
I have a Destiny beta code for both PS4 and Xbox. Anybody interested? PM me!

Crucible and Strike missions are quite fun in Destiny, the only option for Crucible I've unlocked is 6v6 3 point Domination and is pretty stock standard but plays well nevertheless. Strike is a bit of a grind but opens the game up for that MMO type quest gameplay.

I'm teetering on whether or not to buy it, some aspects are nice and it's going to be one of those games you can keep revisiting, on the other hand I'm not sure how quickly it will get old.
