Bungie’s new IP, Destiny launches today, bringing with it space battles on maps based off Earth, Venus, Mars, and the Moon — plus tons of character customization, weapons, stats and difficult raids as well as campaign missions. Honestly, Destiny is currently engaged in “hype train” mode, and as a result (along with clever marketing of review samples frm Bungie and Activision), reviews won’t be up on day one. That can — well — be both good and bad, depending on perspective.
We will have to play the game to find out if it can live up to Halo’s good moniker, as the other publications have or will. Meanwhile, me and my level 8 Hunter have some unfinished business to take care of.
