The Bungie.net Community Focus this week shines on The Black Garden, a B.net group devoted to writing. Go read the interview with its leader, Colonel Aloki - and help pick a winner in its fiction contest! (Bungie's supplying a pretty nice prize!)
Grab your favorite pair of ears and subject them to Episode Two of The Starside Lounge. Four members of the DBO admin team set aside their differences to discuss every Bungie fan's most coveted game: Wreckateer. Somewhere between tales of giant slingshots and crumbling castles, the group manages to sneak in a few Destiny-related thoughts about our Chris Butcher interview, Bungie Week, Jason Jones, fan creativity, and of course: SPACE MAGIC!
Looking back, the connection should have been obvious - but it took Ragashingo to put it together for us. Swing by his forum post to connect the dots between Bungie's Alpha Lupi mini-ARG (which concluded on the day Destiny was revealed) and the upcoming Music of the Spheres symphonic release. Very, very cool stuff!
After sifting through the multitude of entries in each image-based Bungie Day challenge, DeeJ has prepared a colorful gallery of finalists for your viewing pleasure. The winners are still being picked by Team Bungie, but in the meantime you can go see what made the first cut!
The third and final part of Ryan McCaffrey's interview with Jason Jones is now available over on IGN. Today's discussion covers the lack of replay incentives in Halo, sheds some light on the ill-fated Phoenix project, gives us a few more hints at what we'll be experiencing in Destiny, and ends in a bit of a cliffhanger! If you missed the first and second parts of the interview, be sure to check those out first.
Ryan McCaffrey asks Jason Jones about his 17-point design philosophy, his personal gaming habits, and the biggest gamble of his career in Part Two of IGN's interview with the humble co-founder of Bungie. If you haven't read Part One yet, be sure to start with that. Part Three will conclude the interview tomorrow morning.
Bungie Day is here, heralding the midpoint of Bungie Week, and with it comes a handful of short-fuse contests on the Bungie.net forum. Time is short - the deadline for submissions is TODAY. (Presumably midnight Pacific time, though you might be able to squeak by with an overnight entry.) Submissions will be judged by DeeJ's fellow employees, and each winner will receive a Destiny poster signed by Team Bungie. There are seven contests to enter, so visit the threads below for details on how to craft something legendary for each one:
If you were hoping for more on Bungie Day Actual, keep in mind that this year the festivities have been stretched to fill an entire Bungie Week:
Though today may be Bungie Day in the traditional sense, the event will continue beyond the Se7enth. And that is the Tru7h. Our celebration continues tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.
Bungie Week is in full stride, and IGN's Ryan McCaffrey has joined the celebration with Part One of his three-part interview with mythic Bungie co-founder Jason Jones. (Parts Two and Three will go live on Monday and Tuesday, so be sure to check back then for more of the story.) The article is a fascinating read, touching on Jason's role in the day-to-day operation of his growing company and how he approaches the design of a project as ambitious as Destiny. Discussion briefly moves to the legendary story of the Halo CE pistol and how Jason added some last-minute code to turn it into the deadly handcannon we love and fear. Blam! (Thanks, marmot 1333.)
The 5th day of Bungie Week brings us musical tidings from the Bungie Maestros! This new piece, Awakening, was featured at the rotunda theater at the E3 expo a few weeks ago, but now it's available for everyone to enjoy as part of this year's extended Bungie Day celebration. Be sure to give it a listen and then sound off in our forums!
The Bungie Week festivities are spreading to the Bungie Store with a second salvo of E3 shirts in stock and available for purchase tomorrow. The stylish tees are joined by a trio of Guardian banners and a limited edition lithograph of "The Buried City". (That last item is NOT part of a private loot stream - there are only 150 of them available, but each is signed by the artist, Dorje Bellbrook, and all sales benefit the Child's Play Charity!) If you're looking to save a few credits at the Bungie Store, everything will be on sale for 20% off from July 6th to July 14th!
The first slivers of Bungie-blessed loot have begun to drop in honor or Bungie Day - err, week. Follow DeeJ's lovingly-crafted prose on a splendid scavenger hunt befitting any new Guardian. What can you unearth from the City's oldest denizens? Time will tell...
Everyone's favorite summer holiday is swiftly approaching: that cherished time of year when you can grab a nice, frosty beverage from cold storage, grill up a spectacular steak or two, and laugh maniacally as a giant slingshot hurls your enemies into the sun. Yes, I'm talking about Bungie Day - July 7th. IGN's Ryan McCaffrey certainly seems excited, and the official Bungie twitter account has been alluding to an entire week of celebration! If you're not Twitter-savvy (I'm looking at you, Claude), check out this thread on our forum for a quick compilation of details and rumors.
Today might have been light on Destiny news, but fear not, for Bungie Day is only a week away. What wonders await us on the seventh day of the seventh month? If you care to speculate, kidtsunami has a fun thread for you, or we can all just pass the time by staring at this awesome new sketch Levi made of "that guy from the trailer". (Click for full-size.)
We sat down with Chris Butcher during the madness of E3 and asked a bunch of questions that were burning holes in our pockets (and our brains). He answered a lot of them. (Forgive us for the camera focus; our second unit had issues.) Go check it out - and then swing by our forum... if you have further questions, you might just find answers!
Bungie artist Ryan DeMita scored a spotlight at Kotaku today - swing by to see some awesome Destiny art (along with Reach art). There are also links to his personal site and his CGHub page, if you want to continue to explore. Nice! Thanks, INSANEdrive.
Bungie's not just a company that makes killer games - they also take care of gamers in ways that simply brighten my day. Swing by Bungie.net today to read about how Bungie is easing the pain at Seattle Children's Teen Center. It's not Destiny-related... but it's one of the many reasons I love these guys.
UncookedMoa wanted to share their fan-made Destiny trailer, "We Are Guardians", featuring "Final Hour" by X-Ray Dog. I think the result is pretty slick! Check it out!
Looks like we spoke a touch too soon, as Bungie also put up "That's a Wrap", capping off their E3 recap series. Go enjoy! I know the DBO community is especially thankful for all the magic that Bungie provided the world over this past week. Can't thank them enough, and couldn't be more excited to await our Destinies...
Bungie has put up their E3 Day 3 recap video. Go and check out SPACE MAGIC!
The ever-darling DeeJ has seen fit to bestow upon our awaiting earballs and eyeholes a minor trilogy of video featurettes chronicling the early goings of E3 setup and facilitation. Take a look at Booth, Press Rooms, and Rehearsal. May the Vanguard watch over you with vigilance and mercy as you view them.
When Hedge is excited, the birds fly lighter, the tides rise higher, the chocolate tastes sweeter, the kiss lasts longer, the love grows stronger. When Hedge is excited, we are excited.
DeeJ wanted to let us all in on a mission ever-so delicate. Join him on a magical journey through time and space, a journey that will come to a slingshotting head this Monday at E3. The end - nay, the beginning, is extremely nigh.
IGN contacted a bunch of game developers to ask them what they thought about the Xbox One. Eric 'Urk' Osborne responded from Bungie - and oddly enough, his response references Sony more prominently than Microsoft. I guess you can interpret this to mean that Bungie views the next generation as the next generation (rather than as individual consoles)... or maybe it's just that MS hasn't really involved Bungie in its rollout of the new platform. It'll be interesting to see how front-and-center Destiny is in the upcoming Xbox One promotional PR. If you have input on this, Mr Daax (who initially brought this article to our attention) kicked off a thread on our forum - chime in!
New mailsack. Go read it. Your cries for love and answers fall not on deaf ears, but on eager fingers. Go see what they type for you.
