Have you noticed those cool little sketches we include with some newsposts? Have you wondered about them? Our resident art generation slave, Leviathan, is responsible for them, and this afternoon he dumped them onto our forum for your visual enjoyment. Go check it out! (Gettin' close to the time when we kick off a Levi gallery here...)
Pick one of your favorite movies and boot up MS Paint - it's time for Week 2 of the DBO Challenge! Visit this thread on our forum for more detailed instructions and be sure to check out the bonus category winners for Week 1's haiku challenge. What are you waiting for? Start drawing!
Gamestop reports that the United States Patent & Trademark Office received trademark applications from Bungie for Cabal, Vex, Fallen, Glimmer and Hive.
If the USPTO grants Bungie the trademarks, the developer will be able to use them to create and sell interactive game software, graphic novels, Halloween costumes, TV programs, ringtones, and footwear, among a long list of other items based on the names.
The Cabal, Vex and Fallen are the known enemies in Destiny, but Hive and Glimmer have never been previously mentioned - interesting. Thanks to Bungie Informer for the heads up.

The site continues to grow, and evolve - just yesterday, we settled on a logo, and today, we launch the first of what will hopefully be a myriad of galleries (artwork, screenshots, fan creations, you name it). This time out, it's material you've seen before - we're putting up our copy of the announce assets. (You may not have seen these SIZES before; Fireteam is nearly 10,000 pixels across in its full glory.) Keep an eye on that new link in the header - we hope to add more content there shortly!
It may seem like we're light on news - and we are. But behind the scenes, things are coming together; DBO will begin to flesh out in the coming days and weeks, with more sections coming online, and more opportunities for fans to show off their love. Don't go too far away!
Wow - a Bungie.net denizen has created a really cool clay sculpture of a Fallen Captain... killer! (The guy's taking requests for his next project - go give him some ideas!)
Looks like the forum puzzle we mentioned last week has been solved by thebruce and the payoff is pretty neat. Steve Richey (steverrr) has faithfully recreated Bungie's first game, GNOP! It's hosted at gnop.bungie.org and you can read about the development process on Steve's blog. Very cool!
Yesterday, a strange image showed up on our forum. It showed up over at args.bungie.org, as well. Today, another one followed (in both places). Let's be clear - this is a puzzle. A solveable puzzle. And it's appearing on our site because it's relevant to Bungie fans. It is not, however, being brought to you by Bungie. If you only solve 'official' puzzles... leave this one alone. I'm telling you, though, it's got a pretty nice payoff. (More disclosure - I have nothing to do with this.)
The Guardians of Destiny took a look at the mobile device content in recent Bungie videos and did some serious speculating about what it might mean once the game drops. Some of their ideas are pretty far out there - but if they come true, what a game that would be! Go read. Thanks, Cambone.
mastrbiggy posted something interesting in the wee hours this morning for the community to play with. I wonder where it goes...
NartFOpc showed off his beading skills with a Tricorn perler. Funky!
MCV Nordic has an article talking about some middleware that will be integrated into Destiny - Umbra 3 is involved with automatic occluder generation (helping the game engine keep track of what's visible and what's not, so it doesn't have to draw stuff you can't see), and apparently many of the newest features were developed with feedback from Bungie directly. Fun!
Because it's good to have a record of these things, we've put up a copy of the Activision Press Release for Destiny - but you can find it on Activision's investor site, as well. (We'd put up Bungie's version, but I couldn't find one.) It's mostly stuff you've seen elsewhere - but there was one line worth pointing out:
Activision reiterated that although Bungie's amazing new world was revealed today, Activision has not included the launch in its 2013 outlook and there should be no speculation or expectation of a different result.
Wonga. (Amazon's got December 31, 2013 as a release date - clearly, that's just a placeholder.) Thanks to JDQuackers for the heads-up.
The Destiny media embargo has lifted and a slew of websites released articles and videos detailing the recent press event held at Bungie's Bellevue headquarters. Go check out what everyone is saying!
