Destiny Takes Us Inside The Devils’ Lair

The latest gameplay trailer for Bungie’s shared world shooter, Destiny, goes inside The Devils’ Lair to highlight one of the game’s Strike scenarios, cooperative side missions that task a Fireteam of Guardians to venture into dangerous locales and gun down waves of alien baddies for special rewards.

There seems to be a lot of negative buzz about Destiny floating around the Internet today, but I don’t really get it. The game looks fun to me, like a cross between Halo and Borderlands with some kickass buffs and special powers thrown in. Sure, the Strike mission shown in the footage doesn’t appear to present much of a challenge, but I hope people realize that for gameplay demos developers generally set the game to low difficulties just to show off how the game operates without interruption by a lot of game-overs.
