Destiny, the eagerly awaited sci-fi MMO shooter, has finally been released into the wild, and I’ve spent every bit of free time available playing, exploring, blasting, and sinking my teeth into the universe the fine guys and gals at Bungie have built.
My character is currently sitting at level 19, so I’m at the cusp of the “soft level cap”. Bungie has repeatedly stated that the game truly starts after you reach level 20, and what I’ve heard from other gamers, that is very true.
I’m not entirely sure I’ll ever give a “final” review of Destiny. It’s one of those really strange games that feels like it hasn’t reached its potential yet. I still have so many questions about it. There’s so much more coming for it (Bungie and Activision said it’ll have a 10 year life span), so right not, Destiny’s a baby that has taken its shaky, unsure first steps into the huge world.

“Are we ready to be swept off our feet,
And stop chasing,
Every breaking wave…”
It’s no stretch to say that Destiny is my most anticipated game of the year. The minute it was revealed by Bungie I knew it would be something I wanted to play, and each new look into the game only added to that excitement. Getting to play the game in both its Alpha and Beta stages justified the massive hype I placed upon it - Destiny is going to be something special. Featuring solid shooting and RPG mechanics, as well as blending open, social play with an incredible sci-fi world, Destiny is incredibly ambitious. Its success depends upon how long gamers stay in its world, and based on the excitement I’ve seen across the community, I think Bungie’s got another massive hit on their hands.
Destiny’s servers are live in parts of the world right now, and go live in the US in less than 24 hours. It’s been a long time coming, but the barriers are coming down, and Bungie is finally setting us free into their massive world.
I’ll be playing on PS4, so feel free to add me (I’m AudioSuperHero on PSN) and join my fireteam.
See you starside.
