So it looks like the official site has a page for classes, so if you are still interested in the game despite the unlikely-to-be-anytime-soon-PC-port, check it here.  This is one of the last system sellers for me personally and I'm still not 100% sure it will be worth getting a PS4 for alone.

Looks like a play on the tank, wizard, rogue/ranger setup.  Based on the short vinettes I think the tank-like "Titan" speaks to me most.

Its funny - before now I didn't strongly see a Halo resmblance in the game but these short gameplay samples show a lot of move+combat animation simlarities that remind me of Halo and make it clear Bungie is at the helm.

Polygon and Kotaku have both released preview content from Destiny today.  They call into question some concerns about the game as they have seen it so far and I find some of their concerns and insight curious.  I'm still interested in the game because it serves to be a potentially impressive co-operative game that is not necessarily an MMO but more open than say Borderlands (maybe? Hopefully?)  We'll see though.

So for some reason Bungie has been cagey about just coming out and calling Destiny a console MMOFPS, or Halo + Borderlands, or things like that.  I don't understand why.  It sounds like it has dynamic events, classes, instanced content, levels, and now, with this video, loot.

I'm not saying that means I think it's a bad thing.  I'm okay with seeing how they handle all of those things.  Hell if their loot guns are designed and not randomly generated I'd be pleased because good lord the number of terrible weapons Borderlands generates for you is absurd.

Really wish I wasn't going to have to play this on console though.

Okay so honest question. With this coming out soon and a PC release unlikely in the near future, is anyone picking this up for their 360? I'm curious cause I may pick this up to play it with my brother at the very least and if others are gonna play it might solidify my purchase.

To be honest, I want to play Destiny, but I keep looking at it as "this is what will get me to buy a next gen console."  I feel like if I play the 360/PS3 version I'll spend the whole time going "I wonder how much better this runs on the better hardware."  That said though I still don't know that I want a PS4 yet.  I don't know what I'd do from it aside from play a game that Kitty can't even play.  So I... guess...getting it for 360 makes sense... that way I can still play it even if it will be on inferior hardware.

Damn it Bungie make a PC version.

So Destiny drops this week. Here's some gameplay of the first chunk of it from some Polygon guys. 

I'm still mixed on it based on what I'm seeing here.  On the one hand, the shooting looks really tight and fun, in typical Bungie fashion.  On the other hand I'm worried about how quickly it will get repetitive.

Sounds like Gabe is a fan of Destiny.  Here are his thoughts.

It's all the comparisons to "Halo + Phantasy Star Online" that make this game harder and harder for me to ignore.   I haven't figured out if/when I'm going to get it yet but the urge is growing.

EDIT: Tycho's thoughts as well.

I'm still waiting in vain for it to be announced for PC.

I really would rather play this on PC than any console.  Given the how far behind the Halo series is on PC though I'm not hopeful.  Then again, Activision isn't Microsoft so maybe... maybe...
