With unreal engine regularly making the news rounds. I am kinda glad it's something other than that.

Looking forward to playing Destiny tonight :)

Too bad it couldn't utilize some more inspired art design. Graphics are technically nice, much nicer than the beta but still so sterile.

Each environment is so bland and forgettable. Can't believe I'm saying this but it could use some elaborate set pieces. The sky is gorgeous but that's it. Some games can make a wasteland beautiful and strangely inviting. The world of Destiny on the other hand is bleak and depressingly bare.

Can't put my finger on exactly what it is but there's no charm to anything. The future and space should be more exciting. Mass Effect art designers did it, whether a city, barren planet, etc. Destiny feels like i'm in a space junkyard or dreary industrial area.

Great gunplay though.
