Here, There, and Everywhere

A few days ago, Bungie rolled out a new update for their Mobile App. Android users have already been hit with it (you now have access to Bungie.Net Forums and Groups), while iOS users will be getting another upgrade soon. Bungie Mobile keeps slowly building - what will it be like when Destiny finally hits?

Personally, I'm imagining Guardians taking selfies in their bathrooms and throwing instagram filters on their photos of the Venus Gardens...but I think I might be wrong.

What do YOU fear?

In the last Mail Sack, Bungie challenged its fans to envision their greatest fear and fill a Destiny game space with it. The finalists are now up for your perusal - look 'em over, and vote for your favorite! (The winning entry will earn its creator a free shirt... so pick wisely!)

Claude Errera | Jul 23, 2013 08:06 pm | link Community Focus: The Black Garden

The Community Focus this week shines on The Black Garden, a 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!)

The Mail Sack Awaits

bungie_mailsack.jpgThe Mail Sack is now open for questions over on! Apparently tomorrow is Bungie's internal Bungie Day celebration, so perhaps some queries about the festivities are in order. If you have them, now's the time to ask any questions you might have about life on the other side of Jerome's desk!

It's Bungie Week in the Starside Lounge


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!

(In addition to streaming or downloading from our Starside Lounge page, you can also listen on YouTube and subscribe through iTunes!)

They've been spelling it out all along...

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!

Oatmeal, Tragedy, Castles, and Cliffhangers

ign.pngThe 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.

Herr Jones and the Gamble of Bungie


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.

Seven challenges. Seven prizes.

Bungie Day 2013

Bungie Day is here, heralding the midpoint of Bungie Week, and with it comes a handful of short-fuse contests on the 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.

Comforting words from! (Thanks, MrPadraig08.)

A unicorn setting mythology straight.

Jason Jones

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.)

Wake Up Your Ears

The 5th day of Bungie Week brings us musical tidings from the Bungie Maestros!

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".

How many BungieDays are in a BungieWeek?


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.

Wake me in seven days


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.)

DBO Interviews Chris Butcher - Plus Bungie Loves You!

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!

The Art of Ryan DeMita

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.

Sometimes, they make your heart swell.

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 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.

Wrapping up E3? Bork, Bork, Bork!

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...

It was the sack before E3, and all through the house


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.
