  • It looks like there will be many possibilities in the Tower. I cannot imagine 100 or more players running around in that place at a time!! It will be interesting to see how a "shared" environment will work out. Are they going to have different faction "towers?" I like the 3rd person aspect in the tower; great to identify with my player better. I felt there were plenty of NPCs for me to shoot at but felt I had to stop every 200 yrds to take out 3-4 mobs as I explored. I did like how in landing zones I didn't have to wait too long for an event to begin. I did find a couple of times that I found myself alone in a public event and over whelmed by mobs after ammo ran out. More ammo drops off mobs and or possibility to carry more? Using mags as items requires stop of game play moving to item menu and selecting item then resuming game play. Option to assign "direction pad" buttons for item presets over social actions?? I'd rather be able to use items over social hand signals and dancing during combat. Graphics, amazing!! NAV Map....TBD. The Ghosts seem to be integral in the game. I'd like to see more interaction with it maybe crafting, farming mats, navigation? Another interesting situation occurred ask my strike team was headed to the start of the strike. We came across several other teams and NPCs were pouring in. As we cleared, I thought I was with my strike team but we were either delayed or others rushed into the strike leaving a man behind to team up with the other strike team. It was exciting because of the volume of action but also frustrating for someone who was already "in" waiting on those to finally catch up. I am excited for the Beta and for the final game!!

  • I loved the alpha, won't be buying the game because of micro transactions, always online, and no lan. Good game play, terrible execution, guess they could always fix it though

    • Don't like that you need to hit pause to cycle between weapons in a weapon class

    • Loving the loot mechanics, focus on exploration, and organic co-op gameplay. I don't like the fact that there's no dedicated button for consumables.

    • So far I love the alpha! I enjoy the free roam concept as well as the loot variant possibilities. But one thing I hope is that we get to keep the progress we make on the alpha in the full game when its released.

      • Absolutely love it. So far it's shaping up to be one of the best FPS I've played in years. And we're just in Alpha. :) Don't have any major complaints about it. Only bug I've run into so far was a fallen just spinning around on a ceiling. Was kinda amusing. Loving PvP as well. Feels a lot like Halo to me which is in no way what-so-ever a bad thing. Can't wait for more in the beta and of course when the full game drops. Looking like Bungie has a winner on their hands.

      • I really like it. Wish the titan had more defense in pvp though. I really like being able to explore anywhere and some having rewards, while others chasing you out. I'd rather be chased out or killed and given the chance than not even allowed to enter a place like most games do now days. I haven't ran into any bugs/glitches/exploits/lag/disconnections or any of that stuff at all. I've even looked for some.

      • I think I love it more than halo or any game I have ever played (and it's just the Alpha)! I have found two bugs. I really don't have any complaints.

      • I love absolutely everything. But pvp is meh. I'm having a hard time when i try to use unorthodox weapons.

      • Honestly I enjoy the exploration and multiplayer, they will have to add in a more competetive gametype if they want to keep people around I think. Only bad part I can think of are live events are basically un-soloble I've found a few times my weapon or armor will dissapear from a menu screen but thats it
