All I have to say is...
I wish this was an RPG (like Fallout). It feels like it may be a missed opportunity. We'll see, though.

The concept art looks pretty nice.

I'll need more info before I jump on the hype train.

Interested, but I hope it comes to PC, otherwise I will just get it for ps3. Pc though mainly because I think they can do more effects and other things with the increased specs. Should be interesting either way though!

ha ha....

People might want to research what bungie was known for before they were shackled to halo for a decade.

The name of the documentary is called pathways out of darkness for a reason.... or likely multiple reasons. Bungie HATES sequels, and being trapped under the darkness of halos shadow for so long was doubtlessly frusterating for them.

Bungies breakout game was pathways into darkness. A firstperson adventure/puzzle/rpg more akin to majoras mask in game design/progression than halo.

Welcome back bungie. Its been such a long, long time.

Oh, if you look at the earth in destiny from the right angle with that white sphere just above it... It forms the marathon emblem. Brilliant.

I don't think its the same Bungie anymore. Not many original staff remain just the past. Tho I'm glad to see something new from them and Halo at the same time.

Read the article, and I'm fascinated. This looks to be groundbreaking, but the lack of gameplay is worrying. They talked purely concept, not facts. I'm hyped, but I'm keeping it to a minimum. I don't want to get gameplay, and it's nothing like the concept.

Thats because this is all a direct response to a massive leak. Bungie never intended to show it off this early.

However, viral marketing from the pasthas suddenly become very apparant. I know bungie has een working on this since before halo odst since the put destiny promo material in that game.

How good this game is going to be is directly proportional to its early success. The game will be eposodic in nature, but not half life 2 episodic, but monster hunter event quests on super steroids episodic. It will be heavily integrated into social media devices and applications and the game will grow and grow and grow in size the longer people continue to play.

My biggest concern about this is very simply.... Whats the payment plan for this manner of content distribution? I abhor micro transactions for stuff like this....

There is only one that matters, Jason Jones. He IS Bungie. He is minotaur, pathways into darkness, and marathon. Alex Seropia leaving, and what hes made since CLEARLY show exactly what came from where, and its definately Jason we need for something like destiny, which happens to be his brainchild.

More of the same, that's the only thing i could make out of. If it's tailored for the xbox360/ps3 it will look lackbusting on top of it. The ingame material they showcased didn't looked appealing at all.

Yes, because marathon and halo are identical. And this is totally not the biggest, most brazen, most ridiculous confirmation bias i have ever seen.

For everyone playing the Beta, a new Crucible mode called the Iron Banner will open at 5PM EST and last for two hours. This mode doesn't balance players' stats, so your attack and defense will matter. Iron Banner has limited time awards too.
