destiny = Steampunk?

[url]http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=32235[/url] Soldiers with futuristic body suits [i]and[/i] capes? And that giant vehicle/gun thing? For some reason that whole picture has a steampunkish tint to it, and it's disturbing. Steampunk and other, not quite similar styles (futurism mixed with things that just don't quite fit), just turn me off.

  • It gives me a warhammer 40k vibe when I see that picture.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Forcewielder The issue is the realism. HUD-featuring helmets and accompanying bodysuits adorned with capes which fall to the ground is in fact unrealistic and impractical.[/quote] I think we get your point. However, no one cares. I personally really like the capes.

  • Steampunk is more like Hellboy or Dishonored than Destiny. Destiny is possibly disaster-based future and not steampunk.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Dostoyevsky [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Ancient_Peelo Does the machinery in the picture look like it works on steam? You're missing the word "steam" in steampunk.[/quote]It doesn't need to use steam to be considered steam punk. But never mind, I've realized it's the lack of realism that bothers me. I should have thought about the OT more before posting my thoughts.[/quote] I know, it's just that usually when something is considered steampunk, it at least looks like it uses steam in some form or has a sort of goldish bronze and clunky look to it.

Best not to jump to conclusions this early ( I don't think it will be a superhero game it's just that this post came off as though OP is on some kind of high horse and knows more about Destiny than we do).

[/quote] Also to further prove my point [url=http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2012/11/32.jpg] here [/url]is another concept art picture with some one wearing a cloak to obviously represent a faction. [/quote]I wasn't arguing that you were wrong. I was arguing that that would be stupid. I love Star Wars but I also think the fact he's wearing a cape is stupid. Even so, his cape isn't long enough to impair movement, unlike the soldiers in the leaked Destiny picture.

The guy has a helmet with no visor. If he has a HUD I'm sure his body suit is capable of keeping him significantly more warm than a cape would. [Edited on 12.12.2012 1:24 AM PST]

But one of the things that makes video games better is the sense of possibility. It's difficult to role-play when there are obvious things that just don't make any sense at all. And a cape that goes to your heels on a future war fighter makes no sense at all.
