Video gaming: Destiny is so much like Halo it almost feels strange

During the Destiny Alpha, my major take away from the experience was that the game felt very similar to the franchise that arguably made Bungie and built the Xbox brand - Halo.

Destiny thrills, but the big picture rings hollow

Destiny , Bungie's attempt to one-up the latter's Halo franchise by a country mile, has sold a whopping $500 million worth of copies so far, says publisher Activision. But hold up: that's sold-in, not through, which means the company's really reporting a record-breaking relationship with retailers, not customers.
