Space WoW - What to Expect From Destiny

Josh of GeeksPodcast goes over his time with the Destiny beta and what exactly you can expect when diving into Bungie's latest shooter/RPG hybrid! (Destiny, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The fact that this says "space WoW" makes it lose all credibility...I mean... Really? Did you ever even play WoW..or Destiny?

I did indeed! And after playing through both of them there were a lot of parallels that jumped out at me. Minor things like dancing, a quest-like structure, player customization, and so forth of course but then larger elements like a 3rd person hub area to hang out with in your downtime, 'mounts' in the form of vehicles, and class-specific roles in combat jumped out at me the most.

I spent a good amount of time on the beta and have played WoW on and off ever since it first came out yet I find very little in common between Destiny and WoW. WoW was designed as a fully fledged MMO with a huge open world filled with charm, lore, interesting characters, highly diverse areas and far more stuff than I can be bothered to type. You're clutching at straws to find parallels. Not trying to criticize Destiny as I'm really excited for the full game but nobody who has spent a good amount of time on WoW would see enough similarities to even bother comparing the two.

Well, to be fair it's an opinion place and as an avid WoW player there were a lot of things that seemed similar to me.

Apparently I'm not the only one either-
