    Game looks and plays great (have had a few frame rate drops my new monitor I'm playing with has spoiled me with 100Hz gaming). Need to get hooked up with some people to get further.

    BTW thanks PhazeDelta 1 for the key.

    According to these guys it's a frame-pacing issue, the game is actually locked at 30FPS.

    Ustream or Twitch TV both have streams from Alpha players, if your looking to see how it plays.

    Game feels like something between Borderlands 2 and Halo.

    I've never played any of the Halo games before. But there is definitely a Borderlands feel to it.

    Very much a Borderlands feel, I agree. The multiplayer does have a Halo feel to it. Hovercraft vehicles seen in Halo mulitplayer, how the guns handle, etc. Destiny seems to have taken ideas from Mass Effect, and COD too. I'm not sure it knows what it is.

    Yes it is from the limited time I've had with it. At times the game looks stunning.

    Reminds me of Brink, Borderlands and Huxley.

    The ships you see are only used when changing to different places, or planets? The videos I've seen only use them as placeholders for the loading screen. Do you actually get to fly them?

    Looks quite nice! Thinking of getting a bundle with it, but I hope there will be a black one too. It was a bit of a bummer when I found that it is not actually an open world experience, but a HUB like structure. Also it is a onetime purchase? No monthly fees or something?

    I think they are the "mounts" of this game, aka vehicles you can summon when you want and ride at the open world to get faster to your destination. They can get weapons too i think, but the one i had in alpha didn't have.

    Well the city is a hub, but when you go to planets and adventure, you can, and will come across other players you can either ignore, or do events/missions with. Strikes and raids(3 and 6 player) are instances though. No monthly fee either.

    It is fully online, but you can allways ignore players you come across in the world. Except for the events(boss spawns, protect area ect) that happen every now and then, here and there, anyone can take part in those, and also everyone will get the reward, as do in groups. But you won't get the best gear if you just solo.
