Welcome to your daily reminder that Destiny is a gorgeous looking video game.
Now that the Alpha is over, I’m having Destiny withdrawals. The above video is like methadone. A poisonous, weak-sauce replica of the real thing that I’m somehow still dependent on if I’m to function as a regular human being.
It’s funny how a simple Alpha has impacted my opinion on this game so profoundly. Before the Destiny Alpha I was having serious concerns about the game: would it be derivative of Borderlands? Was it just an RPG version of Halo? Post-Alpha I’m still not sure of the answers to these questions, but I am starkly aware of just how much fun I was having moment to moment. What I had underestimated, I think, was Bungie’s ability to make shooting things a rewarding experience in itself.
Regardless — this is some pretty new footage from the game. Enjoy.
