The Electronic Entertainment Expo isn't all fun and games. Well, maybe it's all fun - but it isn't all about the games. I'm risking my life telling you this, but there is a secret buried deep within the Los Angeles Convention Center, a secret that four members of the DBO admin team were able to discover with the help of a few friends. Attached is a 3,300 word exposé that reveals the truth about gaming events, conveniently disguised as a rambling collection of stories from my summer trip to E3. I hate to be a whistleblower, but it's only a matter of time before the next major event takes place and the sooner we get word out the better. Good luck.
Bungie Week just keeps on giving! There's a new video up on Bungie.net today, titled Destiny: Building the E3 Reveal. Join Bungie vets Ryan Ellis, Marke Pedersen, and Michael Zak as they watch the E3 gameplay reveal and discuss the visuals and gameplay in next year's highly-anticipated avian simulator! There are certainly a few new tidbits in here, so be sure to keep your ears open! (Thanks, Mid7night)
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!
For the second day of Bungie Week festivities, Bungie has posted the Official Destiny Gameplay Reveal video to their YouTube page in all of it's HD glory. Also, be sure to check out the news post on Bungie.net.
The bumper at the end of the video also teases a "Building E3 Reveal" video, with a placeholder that says "Coming Soon". Hmm, I wonder what that's about... (Thanks, SigbiasSilva).
Kotaku's Stephen Totilo wrote up his private walkthrough of the E3 Destiny demo - if you've been following E3 coverage, you likely won't learn TOO much new, but you never know. There are lots of tidbits. Go read!
It seems that interviewing Chris Butcher is the popular thing to do these days - New Zealand media outlet 3 News posted the video of a chat they had with the expatriate Bungie employee during E3. If you're too distracted by the background noise (i.e. the booming rotunda speakers on the other side of the wall), the interview is also available in text form. (Thanks, marmot 1333.)
Australian gaming site AusGamers recently interviewed Chris Butcher, a former New Zealand resident we now know as the Engineering Lead at Bungie; the resulting transcript is chock-full of exciting details about Destiny. I get the feeling this article will spawn a wave of discussion on our forum, since Xenos has already kicked things off with a thread highlighting his favorite quotes. Read the AusGamers interview, then speculate away!
Lou Kesten, video game reviewer for The Associated Press, wrote a short article focusing on E3 showdowns and Bungie's new game came out victorious in his "Titanfall vs. Destiny" category! (He only provides one short paragraph of justification, so unfortunately there's not much to go on. I know the Bungie E3 crew had a lot of nice things to say about Titanfall though.)
DeeJ and Urk play the part of good cop/bad cop in this high-energy interview that "Angry Joe" shot during E3. Despite the recent deluge of E3 videos, this chat proved to be highly entertaining; check it out! (Thanks again, Xenos.)
The E3 interviews continue to surface, as tech site Digital Trends releases a chat they shared with the ginger-bearded man we call Urk. The conversation sticks to the same topics we've grown fond of over the past two weeks, but it's always nice to get yet another chance to hear about the game we're eagerly awaiting. (Thanks, Xenos.)
ncsuDuncan, GrimBrother One and Bed Errera sum up their E3 2013 experiences. My only question is, what exactly does Claude need to build up before Destiny comes out?
Gametrailers is running a 'Best of E3 2013' awards ceremony - Destiny was nominated in the following categories:
Unfortunately Destiny didn't win best new IP or best graphics, but the nominations are still pretty neat. Gametrailers will announce 'Best of Show' today at 4pm PST.
We caught up with community member Stephen Laughlin and asked him to share his thoughts on Destiny and E3 overall. Check it out!
E3 2013 was home to many incredible sights, but the Destiny rotunda or 'ronut' experience was probably the most impressive part of the show. The theater provided a sensory overload - air would blast in your face as space ships flew by, the floor would rumble, the screen filled your entire field of view and the audio penetrated your earlobes from every direction. Watch as the Traveler enters our solar system...
If you're interested in just the audio, that's available by itself, as well:
Dean Takahasi, writer for Venturebeat, shared his thoughts one Destiny's E3 reveal. He has a lot of positive things to say, but he also expected a little more from Bungie.
This is one of the tough things about operating an MMO. The technology will eventually start lagging behind single-player games. And when that happens, the MMO has to have its hooks in its players, or it will lose them. I don’t see the hooks yet for Destiny. They might be there, but Bungie has to show them.
Space magic, Dean… space magic.
E3 is over and there are only 19 shopping days left until Bungie Day. If the recent gameplay reveal left a few questions rattling around your skull, be sure to deposit them in this week's Mail Sack thread.
Joystiq's Alexander Sliwinski posted an video interview with Chris Butcher, engineering lead at Bungie, about game concepts and how the social components of Destiny work. Check it out!
Greenskull put together a Destiny E3 recap video - if you need to catch up on Destiny news then this is worth checking out.
The guys at Guardian Radio sat down with DeeJ during E3 for a chat about everything Destiny. It's a great interview, with DeeJ demonstrating his skill at crafting elegant descriptions of potential game sessions. (Thanks, roland)
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!
A third behind-the-scenes video has been posted to the Bungie YouTube channel; this one focuses on the away team responsible for showing Old Russia to a horde of lucky E3 attendees!
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!
Destiny Updates dropped by the forum to let us know that he's put together a roundup video covering pretty much everything we learned about Destiny from E3. Turns out there was quite a bit!
