I've been fairly stoked for Destiny for quite some time - but when Bungie announced it didn't have plans to provide early-access copies to reviewers, my nerve faltered. I'd seen this kind of thing before, after all. Usually, a developer that doesn't allow for early access knows there's something terribly, terribly wrong with their game. Usually, they're hoping no one will discover that problem until after the game's already been released - until after the hype has hoodwinked thousands of consumers into buying it.
