Out of all the games shown at E3, Destiny was the one we’re most eagerly awaiting getting our hands on. After the Giancarlo Esposito TV spot got us all riled up, Bungie and Activision made sure the hype would continue wIth a fantastic showing at E3. After knowing of its existence for nearly four years, we finally have a taste of how it will play. While the gameplay is akin to that of a basic FPS, it presents the mechanics in an incredibly appealing and streamlined fashion. With fierce boss battles, sweet weapons, and the hilarious “Ghost” orb, Destiny presents a very inviting world that is just begging to be explored. It remains hard to get a grasp on the exact scope or how it all comes together in a simple gameplay demo, but if implemented correctly, Destiny could prove to be a very important evolution in online gaming.
