Escalation Can Be Tiring

bia_tiny.jpgio9 has an opinion piece on genre storytelling in general, with a paragraph regarding Destiny specifically. The author thinks there's too much world/system/galaxy/universe-saving going on and the sci-fi and fantasy genres would benefit from more personal and relatable stories. It's also kind of interesting as the article uses DBO's own personal Twitter background as an illustration for the article, huh! Thanks to Malagate for pointing it out.

A Critique of Confusion

gameinformer_logo.pngThe speedy Cody Miller pointed out an opinion piece at GameInformer regarding Destiny - specifically what the author perceives to be a confusing narrative from the start. It's not a condemning piece - the critique is coming from someone who's actually enjoying the rest of the game and it's short and sweet so give it a gander!

Jack Handey would be proud

diehardgamefanlogo.pngDiehard GameFAN has an article entitled '10 Thoughts on The Destiny Beta' - they're solid thoughts. For folks following every snippet of content online, you probably won't find much new here - but for anyone who needs a quick refresher (or wants to read a summary of what we know so far from someone who's spent a little time putting ideas together), this is worth a read. Check it out!

Views from the Fans

If you didn't get a chance to play the Destiny Alpha (or even if you did!), several fans on our site have taken the time to write up their experiences, often including lots of screenshots. You can swing by and explore the perspectives:

  • Cody Miller talked about the good, the bad, and the ugly, in the inimitable Cody style. (No pics, but he also stayed away from his tendency towards hyperbole - a refreshing change.)
  • INSANEdrive only had a day with the Alpha, so he made the most of it.
  • Xenos went for an in-depth look at the UI - great to see if you're wondering how info will be presented to you.
  • Korny went screenshot-crazy, and got pretty in-depth with the gameplay analysis. (He liked what he saw, and it shows.)

While you're exploring personal opinions and screens, you might also want to poke your head into the Grimoire thread; it gives you a glimpse of some of the wealth of content you'll find outside the gameplay itself. Fascinating reading!

I'm pretty sure it's all a Shakespeare ripoff.

GenGame is unhappy that Destiny is just a retread of Halo, which was a retread of Marathon. (That, at least, is the premise of the opinion piece.) Geez, Bungie - couldn't you have come up with a more original story?
