I have watched level playthroughs.
Describing Destiny as the love child of Boarderlands 2 and Halo is pretty apt if you add to it that it takes the worst aspects of both.

It's like Boarderlands 2; except that the bad guys do not drop as much loot of either ammo or weapons, even when you're at a higher level they are bullet spongy so imagine how much more they will be when at or below their level, Guns have ammo pool types but you will run out of ammo faster than borderlands 2, at the end of each mission like Boarderlands 2 you can have one or several gun or item loot chests but the game only gives you 30 seconds to find it and take what you want before being booted back to the mission selection menu, and to get anything decent you have to grind.

It's like halo; except the bad guys are different in name only, the good guys no matter how you can customize their look will look like spartans, Well wait.. no it's just halo by any other name.

Are they going to share their patches to stuff like the open source radeon driver, the open source nvidia driver, and mesa to upstream?
They might just say 'we will give you all the source for our linux distribution, except the steam client(obviously), the streaming client, and any in house made performance enhancements.'

I used to think like this, but that was before I had a job at a major mail order prescription company.
Middle management tried to impress upper management by purchasing a one million dollar automated packing system, in theory it could do thousands of orders a day.
Far outclassing a single human packer at a packing station.
It only did that occasionally, why?
It was a dumb automated machine, ONE little deviation and it stopped working.
This was on top of other stuff on it not working like printing the wrong order's paper work, it throwing a fit if the rx's did not come down the line in the exact order it expected.
It also did not care if for instance the printers messed up, or the paper came out non flat causing the grabber arm to get it stuck on it.
This is the general problem with automation fantasies, physicly it may be possible to replace the human doing the job with a machine.
But the machine is no where near as fault tolerant as a human.
If one of these machines encounters a minor error such as product being out of order, or objects not being 'exactly' where it expects it to be, they stop at best and at worst ignoring it causing more problems.
For a human worker it's just a fraction of a second routine correction.

Many people write memos to tell you they have nothing to say.
