Music is a big part of games and of course Bungie's new game, Destiny, is no exception. The first track for the game, named Awakening has been released to the public.
It's quite different than from what I'm used to from Halo music, but it's still pretty neat.
It sounds like a mix of something I'd expect in Alice In Wonderland and Phantasy Star Online lol
Awakening was also the first Halo 4 track that was released fully before the game was released.
I was just about to say that. Pretty funny, isn't it?
I continue to be unimpressed by Destiny. I thought Bungie was going a completely new direction when they separated from MS. Turns out, all they have done is put Halo into a dynamic environment with more weapons choices... Every time I have seen Destiny, its mechanics remind me of Halo. Not, a bad thing, but, hardly a reason for them to totally separate from MS. I predict Destiny sells better on PS4 than X1 simply because PS has not had a Halo experience.
I disagree. You talk like they need to have mechanics that are completely different to Halo? Halo is one of the most loved games of all time and that is just plain damn fun to play. Taking those mechanics and putting it into a huge living, breathing 10 year MMO universe the way they have in my eyes is pure awesome. It looks like SO much fun, I want to be the magic warrior guy and play with friends. I think it's a great thing.
I said it wasn't a bad thing. I was just expecting something totally new and completely different. When, Bungie left MS I thought it was because they were creatively constrained. Destiny is not a creative leap over Halo. Destiny is another Halo in a dynamic environment and a large suite of weaponry. I just expected more from Bungie. Do I know what I expected? No. I just thought it would be more...
Agreed. I never got the appeal of Halo (I know, I know, no need for the hate), and I certainly don't get this one. I'm all for epic sci fi, my favorite genre, but the mechanics are all-halo, loose, fast, and not realistic at all.
well sucks for you then. I love the mechanics, wayy better, more fun, and more tactical than iron sight controls.
