What is Destiny? Better question is what isn’t Destiny? It’s an RPG FPS MMO. The developer, Bungie (of Halo fame) is calling it a “shared-world shooter.” It’s also got speeder bikes like the ones from Return of the Jedi. And character art that reminds me of Robotech, especially The New Generation, which also had a similar aliens-in-the-backyard premise. The FPS looks a lot like Halo. A 30-second Playstation share “commercial” is out and my brain is still repeating, “Titanfall, Titanfall, Titanfall….”
But what is fascinating is the “alive” factor. It creates a dynamic environment where the unexpected can happen. Not sure exactly what that means. Procedural? We’ll see in September.
