  • Greetings, My name is Blaze and I'm a Destiny addict. over the past few weeks I've hardly been getting by with what I have. I don't know how I'm going to make it to September. I can't be bothered to play anything else without instant boredom. The only game i can get slight satisfaction from is dishonored because I love the sword fighting mechanics (good thing it's the free game with gold for the month) but now I have already done everything to do in said game I have played through it 3 times for travelers sake so i find myself bored again. I cant bring myself to delete the beta and start it up around 4 times a day thinking I'll be able to play and i can't stop looking at destiny trailers regardless of the fact that they make the withdrawal worse, ironic considering that when if first saw one of the trailers for destiny I did not think i was going to buy it, I was uninterested (as crazy as that sounds it "was" true. "WAS" can't stress that enough) but then after returning from a 2 week vacation in Iceland, I tried the beta "unaware that i only had day to play it" and I was instantly hook the game play was phenomenal, the environment was breathtaking, I LOVED everything about it. Then the next night while hanging out in the tower playing with a soccer ball I got disconnected. I had thought the servers had possibly crashed or had been undergoing maintenance for the level cap increase i had heard rumors about. I logged on only to find the servers had been shut down and i had just bought a new sparrow. I was shocked, that might have been the best game i have played in my entire life and to think it was only the beta. i spent all the money i had to pre-order and now I'm bankrupt but it will be worth it. I've never been so hyped about a game before now. any way i could rely use someone to chat with who understands how i feel :(. my GT is "BlazeTC 69" and i have nothing to do until September 9th (I apologize for this being one of the biggest posts of this forum but i just can't find any way to express myself in a few sentences this is also my first time EVER posting on a forum I just feel that no one could understand me as much as you guys will :| )

    • I have found that after playing the beta I have not been able to play any other of my games as much in as not getting any enjoyment or satisfaction out of them. I slap one in the try and within 20 mins I just can not be bothered to play it. The only thing that I have been using my X1 for is DVD's and Netflix, I fined myself spending more and more time here in this forum that any thing else and really just can not wait for the game to come out in September.

        • Since the beta is gone, I can't stay off of these forums. I'm always thinking about it. I can't help it, its not my fault Bungie made such an incredible game.I've never been addicted to a game BEFORE release. I can't go an hour without checking in on these forums, its ridiculous!

          • My name is Raging Bullgod and it has been 48 hours since I last punched a Fallen in the face. I don't need to punch Fallen in the face. I'm stronger than this. I'm a mother -blam!-in Titan for Traveler's sake. Who am I kidding. I need to feel the bones break as my fist smashes into the face of a Fallen Dreg. I need to watch as their bodies fly through the air after my flash bang goes off. I need to feel the Arc Light energy explode around me dissolving all that was Darkness bred.

            • Hello, my name is SaintWolfheim, I was a clan leader in the Destiny Beta and I'll admit that I have DWS. Everyday, I look at pictures, vids and my Warlock, I still see his items in my inventory. But my coping mechanism has been prop-building I've made a Hand-cannon, designed a Ghost, a Hunter's knife, and a Warlock Bond. Just this might last me the month. I'll post these on deviantArt under my Bungie.net tag! Check them out if you want to get a high off some IRL Destiny props.

            • My name is WizeNDeadly, Most just call me Wize, or Deadly. I'm an Awoken Warlock. Like many others, I'm here today to help myself recover from whats known as DWS. I stopped counting the days, and continue to fall for the traps that the Fallen & Hive set for me in the forums. If I suddenly see "Beta now online!" I jump at my "Ghost," and hope for the best. Despite the inner knowledge of it being offline. I continue to take my daily dosage of start-screen music, in attempt to curve my relapses, but it hurts. I need my fellow Guardians, we alone will fall to the Darkness, but banned together the travelers light shines through us all. Till we meet again star-side Guardians....

            • Hi I'm ziFeanaro and I'm a Destiny addict. I have spent the past week looking at concept art, gameplay, and drawing my Awoken Warlock. I have been asking my girlfriend to draw the scenery from levels we saw in the beta. She thought the beta was fun, and my dad being the badass one he is, is getting me a copy of Destiny for PS3 (PS3 so I could play with my girlfriend) as an early Christmas present. I can't stop checking the forums. I can't stop looking at concept art and gameplay. I need August to be over. I don't even care if school starts in September. I need Destiny.

              Awaiting Rise of Iron! - 8/22/2016 4:57:04 AM

              It's only been 5 days..... It feels like an eternity. I've never craved a video game so badly, or been so disappointed to see a Beta end. I can't escape it, it drives me nuts. Lol seriously bungie might wanna start writing doctors notes to all the people who are gonna call in sick for this glimmering game.

                Hi, my name is Garrett and I'm addicted to Destiny. The first day after the beta wasn't so bad. I turned on my Xbox hoping that maybe the beta would start up, but it didn't and that's okay. I did snap on the cashier at the grocery store because the coupon I had expired. That's to be expected, I think. Day 2 after the beta I found myself watching rebroadcasts of Destiny on Twitch. This eased the shaking and spasms I began having this morning, but I just became angry at this guy who was streaming. He wasn't very good and it was like he was purposely not doing the story mission just to mess with me. It seems my mental state is suffering. I wanted to get on the Beta and forget about that fool, but ill just watch porn that will ruin my day again instead. Day 3 my Destiny T-shirts came in and I printed out Destiny photos to hang around my room. I've hung them like a timeline with which I will do first. 34 pictures seems like enough. The Awoken Female in one picture seems to keep eying me. I starred at her wondering what kind of things she would do to a human titan like me. I cant snap out of it and I think about her until I fall asleep. Day 4 the pictures on the walls are coming alive, there are shadows gliding, sniping, and sliding around my room. I can hear the cries of the Hive in the distance. I hear a ship overhead and I feel the room shake. The face of a Cabal came out of his picture and said "HAHAHA WHY DONT YOU TRY AND KILL ME, TITAN? HAHAHA" I ran to get my knife and I started stabbing him and then I opened my eyes and everything was gone. I took the picture of that awoken and put my juice all over it, 4 or 5 times, before I fell asleep. Only 40 more days until the full game is released. Day 5 What had I done in a previous life to deserve this sort of punishment and teasing from Bungie. REDRUM REDRUM REDRUM I'm now bashing my head against the wall to get these withdrawal symptoms to escape somehow. REDRUM I'm now bleeding. I'm going to go for a walk outside. I am naked, but I have the word "GUARDIAN" written across my chest, so people will still understand me...... REDRUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                • Hi everyone my name is Fenix28k (psn tag) and I am a destiny addict much like the rest of u for the past 6 days I have tried many things to curb my craving. From forum reading to gameplay bids on ign and YouTube. But finally I believe I hit rock bottom when I started playing thief running around crouching imagining I am avoiding motion detection in destiny and sniping at guards with arrows even though I don't need to. I don't know what to do anymore now that I have reached this point. I am afraid so very afraid mostly because I was e energy tempted to play the Wii u. (Shiver)

                • Ok....I caved....I know it's not the same, but its the closest there is. :sigh: Hubby activated Halo Reach & the music drew me. It was a weak moment, probably cause I've been sick today.... I took pics of my Destiny character so why not of my Reach character. ^_^

                  • I am lost. Making paper and cardboard replicas of my Destiny gear does not feel the gap left. Headshots on passing children no longer placates me. The Guardians are coming...................
