5 Reasons You Should Care About Destiny

Game Punch: Since Bungie started leaking out details about Destiny in November 2012, I have been aching to find out more about this game. Bungie, best known for their innovative Halo series, have been a hallmark of Microsoft’s endeavours in gaming, so when they announced they were leaving Halo behind for brighter pastures many gamers wondered what they were possibly going to do next. An RPG? A strategy game?

If this is released at launch, I am willing to predict that it will dominate. This game will be unique and engaging from what I have seen. It will be lest Halo, more Mass Effect, yet it seems that the planets will be more populated and detailed than ME. This is the game and the Witcher-3 are the games I looking forward to the most so far.

I'm not so sure about right at launch with the next consoles. Bungie hinted at the possibility of launching Holiday 2013, but Activision quickly turned it around saying doubtful for 2013.

OT: There's only one reason I need to care about Destiny: "Developed by Bungie"

Totally, this game hopefully redifines the FPS genre I have total trust in Bungie.

1. Bungie is not changing what a MMO is!

You Silly Editor the PC has MMO's of every type and genre. Then you go on saying Bungie is gonna change what a MMO is BUT you provide NO FACTS as to how.

Matter of Fact Eve Online is completely controlled by Gamers and is the most revolutionary MMO ever.

Then you have the MMO OtherLand where all the worlds are Gamer created.

2. Now enough of that, I'm curious as to what Bungie's Destiny will be and hopefully it will be fantastic and give consolers an Excellent MMO/FPS/RPG

3. MMO means Massive Multiplayer Online! that's it, nothing more!

Doesn't mean it has to be WoW or Guild Wars 2. A MMO can be every Genre imaginable!

I'm very excited to see more of this, will be going straight into my PS4 that's for sure!

I'm excited but not liking the sound of the fact you always need to be online, especially with a game like this which would be as good playing solo offline.

After the SimCity thing I'd rather not be forced to stay online

SJPFTW1231d ago

what part of "Massice Multiplayer Online" do you not understand? LOL

Root1231d ago

and they can't make a single player to it after they created Halo....an amazing single player experience

I understand where you are coming from here, I really do, but I gotta disagree. This is one game where I don't want to see a purely single-player experience available. The fact that it is so multiplayer-oriented and connected is part of its appeal. Having a purely single-player experience almost seems like it would detract from this.

It's different from the typical shooter experiences as of late (CoD, Battlefield, Halo, etc.). This, being a good thing.

"It's different from the typical shooter experiences as of late (CoD, Battlefield, Halo, etc.). This, being a good thing."

Absolutely right. I would be much less interested in Destiny if it was a typical shooter. The "always online" game is something I want to see a lot more of. I don't want single player games to go away, but there is lots of potential here. Defiance is a bit like this but on a much smaller scale. I imagine something with the combat of Demon's/Dark Souls in a much bigger world with many players could be very cool also.

KillrateOmega1231d ago (Edited 1231d ago )

My thoughts exactly. There is so much potential here. I want them to take this heavy multiplayer/always connected focus all the way instead of half-assing it and falling into the realm of the typical.

On the matter of Demon's/Dark Souls, I would totally play a MMO-esque version of these games as well. God knows that there is a deep enough level of customization already there.

DigitalSmoke1231d ago (Edited 1231d ago )

There's not enough info on the game to justifie an opinion about it imo.
If its the fact that Bungi made another succesfull game, then i advice you to look at studio's who fail one after eachother after a succes.

Hope its good though.

Killing me with news. We are looking at 2014. Damn.
