Destiny Calling

Destiny is nearly out, and now has a semi-live-action trailer. Very nice visually. And... the PCs in the video don’t seem to be taking this interplanetary battle against alien invasion terribly seriously.

It makes a change from the artsy quiet thoughtful tone of earlier publicity. Compare the opening cinematic with Bill Nighy providing wistful voiceover and the one whole joke Peter Dinklage gets in the final trailer to snarking their way across the solar system.

It might well better reflect how the game plays as it’ll be full of gamers chatting and showing off, but it makes me think that adapting it to tabletop would need more powerful PCs than I had previously imagined, and maybe death is off the table? (I don’t know how respawning works, but obviously it does.)
