I’m super excited! at first i was all mad because of the mmo issue,but today it was said that is wasn’t,but will be a “shared-open world” i’m hoping they take the good parts of mmo and leave out the bad ex.grinding,EXP etc. but have the ability to travel where the hell you want and have huge parties and guilds.From what i’ve seen i’m very impressed with Bungie and thought they could never out do Halo,but it’s like it might be on the same level if not better.Of course it’s too early to say,but i can’t wait for more!

<font face=“Arial, Verdana” size=“2”><span style=“line-height: normal;”>I’m kind of getting the impression that it’s gonna be like a Borderlands kind of deal, which by the looks of this, would be fucking amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I love Borderlands for all that it is, but I’ve always wanted a FPS/RPG experience that takes itself seriously in terms of story and presentation. This game looks like it’s going to do exactly that. And given Bungie’s excellent ability to create amazing stories and incredible gameply, this just might be able to top Halo. </span></font><div><font face=“Arial, Verdana” size=“2”><span style=“line-height: normal;”><br></span></font></div><div><blockquote class=“Quote”><div class=“QuoteAuthor”><a href=“http://forums.shoryuken.com/profile/6489/KillaFox”>KillaFox</a> said:</div><div class=“QuoteText”><font face=“Arial, Verdana” size=“2”>Destiny - Videogame Thread + SRK Clan SignUp it, I searched twice and nothing came up.

I agree.I personally don’t want certain mmorpg mechanics like i said like exp grinding/leveling.I do want a hybrid,but when it comes to combat   i think when you involve those mmorpg elements it becomes about who can grind the most exp other than like in Halo it;s who ever is more skilled so im also looking for that competitive side to it as well like a FPS should.
