What Is Destiny Offering That's New And Different?

Imagine yourself, back in 2001, playing the spectacular Xbox space shooter Halo. Now, imagine swooshing forward in time, to here, to 2014, playing Destiny. (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

So at its core, its Borderlands crossed with Mass Effect while still holding a striking resemblence to Halo.

Its also an MMO that somehow is not an MMO lol

Everything I have seen "so far" does not scream innovative, ground breaking or a genre first well not entirely.

But hey visually it looks incredible, yet gameplay wise somehow still manages to come off dull.

I honestly don't know what to think of this game, it doesn't have me hyped like other games. I used to love Bungie games and they definitely do have the pedigree to create great worlds with interesting stories. I'm just not "WOWED" at all with Destiny. It kind of reminds me of a beuaitiful model, pretty to look at just no substance underneath idk maybe its just me.

Still maybe between now and launch they will find a way to entice me in to wanting to play Destiny who knows.

Good thing we will all get a chance at the beta to give it a try. I'm optimistic that it will be a fun game but definitely feel it's not really doing much to innovate.

It won't be any fun. I researched through YouTube videos and it doesn't look 1080p @60fps which is standard resolution for nextgen=fun and must buy. I will continue to monitor the on screen pixels counts and keep you guys updated.

I predict this game will not do as well as anticipated. In fact I feel it will do sell less than expected. Why?

1. It looks similar to Halo and I believe the world has out grown that franchise.

2. Looks generic and repetitive.

3. It lacks blood and realistic gun sounds. This is something that I feel is far overlooked in the gaming community. We are so past pew, pew, pew.

1. The world is far from out growing halo

2. What game doesnt look generic and repetitive

3. The game isnt meant to be realistic and how can you have realistic gun sounds if the weapons in the game don't exist in real life?

This game will do EXTREMELY well, like it or not

It is going to do perfectly well on Xbox one. That is exactly why bungie is catering to playstation fans. I have seen plenty of them that were not halo fans. And this games does look just like halo.

This game is going to be a success regardless of what anyone thinks.
