Destiny: Six Years in the Making

Gamespot has posted the recording of Chris Butcher's talk at GDC this year titled "Destiny: Six Years in the Making." You can watch it over on their site or on their Youtube channel, and here is Bungie's own description of the talk:

At Bungie, we built games based on the Halo engine for ten years. However, by 2008 it was beginning to show its age and there were many core systems that were ill-suited to a modern game development environment. For our new game, Destiny, we sought to develop an engine that would last us just as long as the Halo engine had. This talk will cover the six-year development arc of the Destiny engine, from inception to ship.

(Thanks to uberfoop for posting about it on the forum, even if I didn't notice until after the fact!)

Gameplay from Gamescom

You may have already seen pieces of this, but here's a gameplay video that fell through the news-cracks last week. There's definitely some fun moves in here ready to be recreated in Septemeber!

Thanks, INSANEdrive.

Gamereactor Interviews DeeJ

Gamereactor interviewed DeeJ at Gamescom about some things to expect in Destiny when it launches. Interesting information in there, such as the confirmation of checkpoints in Raids, but the checkpoints won't last forever.

Fallen Got Run Over By a Sparrow

Gamestop posted a video of the exclusive red Sparrow you get for pre-ordering on youtube. Not anything new really, but if your pre-ordered from Gamestop you can see in detail what your ride will look like.

'Shotgun blast to the face beats just about everything'

Playstation Access sat down with DeeJ at Gamescom to  discuss the beta as well as the future of the game. Some interesting tidbits in there, including that Destiny will launch with 10 competitive multiplayer maps!

The Dark Below

joystiq.pngBefore he was DBO-fied, Xenos let us know that Joystiq posted a little interchange with Bungie's Jonty Barnes, Director of Production, mostly concerning the first Destiny expansion, The Dark Below. There's also a few other details about the Beta, and how Bungie will keep upgrading and growing Destiny consistently as opposed to just releasing it, a few DLC, and moving onto the next project.

We're going to change the game after launch in a frequency that we think makes sense, and that isn't going to be dependent on The Dark Below."

Another Hands-On Preview

earth-day.pngXbox Achievements posted a short little write-up detailing their experience with Destiny at Gamescom. Nothing really new here, but if you're in a Destiny drought, here's a few more words to help keep the pain away.

Gamestop 'Exclusive' Pre-Order Sparrow

Gamestop has a new Destiny pre-order "exclusive" today: a quicker, faster, more durable, specially-painted Sparrow (and apparently it's back to "Sparrow"). petetheduck found the news over on GAME.co.uk, and JDQuackers was quick to notice some important small-print in our forum stating the limits of the exclusivity. It sounds like the pre-order bonus will grant you a quickly-upgraded Sparrow that everyone else can obtain by end-of-year. You can check out the 40-second ad spot here:

Games has your Destiny Deets

If you're looking for the next info drop, swing by Games™ Magazine - they've got a nice 8-page spread on Destiny in their January 9 issue. There's not a boatload of new info - but it is a nice summary, and the pictures ain't bad at all! (If you're looking to buy a digital copy, and you're not in the UK, you might have trouble with both the Amazon and iTunes options... but Google Play works nicely.)

Big Entertainment

Pete Parsons spoke to GamesIndustry International - it's a great interview for showing how high Bungie is shooting with this IP. They're not planning to build the next game - they're planning to build the next DECADE of games, and they're pretty excited about it. (Our forum is a bit skeptical, all told - but maybe that's healthy. Make 'em earn that respect!)

Inside Gaming talks to Urk

insidegamingextended.jpgAnother interview recorded at Gamescom has surfaced (thanks, Xenos) - the crew at Inside Gaming took some time to talk to Eric Osborne about the crowd-pleasing awesomeness of Destiny (340,000 attendees at Gamescom this year, baybee), and what should be lighting your fire. Definitely worth a watch!

Majestic Maverick's Destiny Impressions

Majestic Maverick shared his thoughts on what was shown of Destiny at Gamescom - he seems thoroughly impressed. 

Not since the original Halo have Bungie captured such a feeling, but with Destiny, it looks like they’ve successfully created an exciting and intriguing universe, one that could potentially be the next big industry changing title, and I really can’t wait to experience it first-hand.

Consider me thoroughly excited!

Private eyes, they're watching you

awake.pngWe hired a private eye to investigate the Gamescom Destiny booth. Our first choice was private investigator Gene Parmesan, but we felt a little uneasy when he kept showing up as Claude. That's when we called on our German informant, Hypertrooper, to scope things out. We see your every move!

A view from the front

ttl.pngTTL Bjorni was able to experience the latest Destiny goodness first-hand, at Gamescom this week - and he wrote up his experience at Tied the Leader. There are even some codes from the trading cards Bungie was distributing (though I'm not sure what you're supposed to do with them). Go live vicariously! (Then tell him what you thought on our forum.)

Urk Abroad

More news from Gamescom: Urk sat down with Shaun McInnis of Gamespot to talk about how Destiny empowers players to explore the game and create their own story. The two briefly discuss a tidbit from the new (and still unreleased) ViDoc - it sounds like players will have some sort of "super attack". Fascinating!
