X-Men Destiny looks sucky, makes me sad

Good Grief, who thought handing the X-Men franchise over to the guys that did Too Human was a good idea? I really want to like this game. The 2 X-Men Legends games on the PS2 were killer, but as that franchise morphed into the Ultimate Marvel games they lost a lot of the RPG elements and just became flashy button pushers.

In theory making X-Men Destiny a more traditional RPG in the vein of City of Heroes sounds great but I swear this game looks just like Too Human part Two. I'm one of the sad saps that actually played that game to the end and it really was as bad as its reputation. The fact that Silicon Knights still exists is befuddling. The fact that someone at Marvel decided these were the guys to handle their best intellectual property is mind bottling.

X_men Destiny hits the shelves later this month, hopefully it'll hit the close out bins around December when I'm flush with Christmas cash.
