Typically you don't get this kind of time to dig in with on cams. They want short and sweet.

I did about four more long form interviews like this, but I'm not sure when/where they'll pop up. One was for radio, which is perfect for me. ;)

Loved this:

we’ll have player missions so they can have new things to do every day. They’ll have new activities for whatever mood they’re in. Whether you’re feeling like you just want to soak in the view or find a cool, quiet spot to drink in the universe and learn more about the fiction of the world. We’ll give them cinematic storytelling that feels really unique and interesting. We’ll give them competitive modes and activities they can do if they’re feeling up for a challenge. So we’re going for all of that, absolutely we want you to explore the world and feel immersed in it.

Also, wonder if the interviewer meant Reach and not Halo 3 when he talked about riffing on space combat?

I thought urk handled the MMO question straight on.

Sup, Ap! Haven't seen ya around. Did you hate Halo 4 or something? Can't say I'd blame you, but it is better now.

This is true, I was active(?) on the HBO forum for a little bit, even though I'd lurked there for a while. I like the people there, though, and it's been fun to see many of the same individuals be excited for Destiny as well and develop good threads about what is known so far. Most people here and there (on HBO) know much more about games and gaming than I do, so getting different perspectives on things like the nitty-gritty of how MMOs (which I have never really played at a "dedicated" level) work and function has been informative for me.

Hey, Snipe! Yes, I'm excited for Destiny! I've always been a big sci-fi guy (like Bill Nye?), so the thought of romping around through the solar system with everyone sounds really cool in and of itself, to say nothing of the shared world aspect of Destiny, which also sounds like it will be (hopefully) really fun.

OT: I did enjoy Halo 4 while I was playing it, I just found I wasn't getting the same enjoyment out of it as I did previously. I'd say it was more of an, "It's not 343i, it's me," thing than the other way around. I'm not sure. It's been hard to precisely put my finger on the exact reason. I recall someone on the HBO forum once describing him- or herself as having "limited bandwith" when it came to gaming. My bandwith has been squeezed since the start of the year due to (good!) real life reasons, so I've unfortunately cut out a few things I otherwise might not have.

TL;DR:

  • I've been on the HBO forum before.
  • Hello Snipe!
  • I'm excited for Destiny!
  • Lost some interest in (and available time for) Halo 4, but I still like it (and everyone here and at HBO)

Achievement Unlocked: [Convert one Lurker]

Great to have you here!


There are lots and lots of things that are possible with the technology available that I'm not sure very many developers have tried.

At first, my hope was that we'd see Destiny do this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCzDKj3hjOE,

And while I'm not holding my breath for that exact result, the mere fact that we've seen the ways Bungie have stretched their abilities over their last several releases, it really does seem that they're poised for something great.

I think it's curious that we haven't seen much talk of how many players are supported in the gamespace, though. The Public Event we saw had multiple fire teams, but I wonder if Bungie is setting their sights on 16 players in a combat situation being the sweet spot for how they'll utilize the engine. Of course, many more than 16 players will populate the common areas in The Tower, and I would think space combat would be less resouce intensive than throwing 64 pairs of boots on the ground, which we know other developers have tried. I guess it depends on the particular scenario. Asteroid fields, etc...

But I digress.


It's always great to see new folks around these parts. Hope you stick around.

When I read the first articles about Halo I remember imagining a multiplayer shooter much like Starsiege: Tribes with massive pitched 64-player battles across open terrain. Maybe there will be a bit of that in Destiny, but the Bungie networking guys are definitely going to have their hands full just implementing all the ambitious seamless matchmaking stuff with a relatively moderate number of players. I'd rather see that done well.

Whether it be defending Earth or making landfall during a planetary invasion, this would be such an amazing experience. Do I expect it to happen? No. This seems like it would be a daunting undertaking pushing a network to its limits. If they can make it happen, and such an event is in the game, this could rival the whole of Mass Effect as my favorite moment in gaming.

I trust that limits will be pushed and we won't just end up with a shinier, MMO-ier Borderlands.

I dunno, I still hold out hope. They keep saying how much they are focusing on the FPS portion of the game. For all we know they want to put in pilotable ships but just don't have it working yet so they don't want to promise it.

I personally have it on the same list is PC version of Destiny.

It may be a feature we get in Destiny II.

More than anything else, that level in Reach always stood out to me as being destined for bigger things. It seemed like so much work for a 10-20 minute playable portion of the game.

Also, it was awesome.

Let's not forget that we had extravehicular ops on the outside of a Covenant ship, which happens to be a concept Bungie has played with since Marathon. The Cassini Derelict seems prime material for something in the same vein for Destiny at the very least.

How great would it be to look up from the hull of the ship you and your fireteam are assaulting and see several other fire teams engaged in a space battle above you?

Honestly, from everything I've heard about Halo 2 development, seems like that demo was supposed to sell themselves on the idea just as much as fans.
