Because ‘squee’ is totally a thing. Just ask the misguided teen legions stalking whining wiener of pop Justin Bieber, waiting for him to inadvertently post images of his shriveled mini-wang onto the internet.
Since its appearance at the PlayStation 4 reveal in February, the science fiction-y, open world-y shooter Destiny has been among the most hypetacular games of the upcoming ‘next generation.’ After all, at this very moment, it is being fed through the Badass-Game-o-Matic by the wizards at Bungie; last seen busting their nuts to create the original Halo trilogy. Which surely means that, as today’s young people like to say, shit is about to get real. Real awesome.
When 343i took up the mantle for Halo 4, there was much lamenting that the ‘Halo-ness’ of the franchise had been lost. Loadouts and suchlike gave it a Call of Duty-esque feel, at odds with the unique elements of previous Halo installments. Pitchforks were raised, torches lit and flaming sacks of dogcrap left on the doorstep of 343i’s offices. As such, the question is: will Destiny prove to be the spiritual successor of Halo 1-3, a new masterpiece?
We’re going to need some actual gameplay to decide that. At, for instance, the wang-waving gamestravaganza that is E3 2013. In the interim, enjoy the most recent Destiny showcase above, with the Law of the Jungle trailer.
