Destiny continues to look amazing, but I did get the sense that some folks were a little disappointed with its last showing. Our own Patricia Hernandez worries it might end being a little boring. It looks like Bungie is striking back, and is on the offensive with a brand new dev diary focusing on loot, armour and upgrades.
To my eyes, Destiny looks a lot like a shooter with RPG elements. Yep, that’s about as obvious as it gets, but what excites me is that it’s a shooter by Bungie with RPG elements. No-one quite gets shooting people in the face like Bungie, particularly in the console space, and that’s the bottom line here. When it comes to getting that core loop down no-one does it like Bungie.
The above video focuses a little more on the RPG elements, which is perhaps the unproven aspect of Destiny in terms of Bungie and its pedigree. Hearing Bungie employees talk about ‘loot’ and ‘upgrades’ is always a little strange, but I’m ready for something a little different here and hope the game lives up to the promise.
