    After Microsoft take Halo from the hands of Bungie and giving it to the 343 Industries so they could turn it into a CoD clone I thought they would close bungie down, but I was wrong.

    Bungie is a good studio. I liked the first Halo a lot -- a decent sci-fi FPS? Count me in. Didn't care much for the bloated sequels, but I don't fault Bungie for that. I'm interested to see what they can do next.



    Edit after reading game details/MMOpalooza: Nope.

    Nice concept art. Usual supervillian evil in the boardroom though.

    More concept art : http://au.ign.com/articles/2012/11/28/destiny-story-details-concept-art-leaked

    The better the artwork looks, the bigger the disappointment will be.

    Ambition usually leads to failure.

    Only if inexperienced, dumb or careless people embark onto something ambitious, it leads to failure.

    Knowing Bungie I'm ok with hub-based MMO. If there's one thing they know how to do is a fun multiplayer experience.
    The concept arts from IGN also looks pretty noice.

    They speak of ambition yet it sounds like exactly every sci-fi setting ever created in the past 10 years. Gameplay will probably be like a MMO CoD with facebook integration. Social media all over the place. Are the people who made Myth and Marathon even working for Bungie anymore?

    It does seem very derivative of Star Wars and Halo

    Concept art looks cool, but that doesn't mean a good or even interesting game. Activision is involved too, nothing good ever comes of that. Interest in this fell to zero.

    Jason Jones is a bro, but now that this BS is done with (they were contracted to do it) they can now make MARATHON!!! They'd better not fuck it up, though.

    Also, I wonder if that is Craig Mullins concept art.

    EDIT: I also wish Bungie would have made a single player RPG during their golden years. Pathways into Darkness was good and I suspect they could have made a really good cRPG setting albeit with sucky rules, no doubt.

    Well, Jason Jones, but otherwise, not really.

    The game shows potential for latex suit women a cool sci-fi setting.

    I dunno dudes. If it's competitive and grindy and no-lifey (think World of Warcraft), I will definitly play it. Because I like latex am a loser.

    As awesome as my 7-year-old self was, there's nothing that entertained me then that would entertain me now (besides masturbation).

    Shame they don't have the money or desire to go indie. I'm sure they could have kickstarted millions (although probably not the 50-100mill budget they will get from blactivision).
