Lots of goodies, both in-game and out, are or will soon be available - go read for more details! The Bungie Store has special items available (history suggests you should buy soon if you're interested), and the post also contains some great-looking Forsaken-themed wallpapers. Happy Bungie Day!

MotS: A Poetic Adventure (Part 1)

OS_Epsilon stopped by with a pretty amazing fan creation, in celebration of Bungie Day - it might need a little explanation. When the Music of the Spheres was written, accompanying poetry was commissioned from poet Malcolm Guite. Because of the issues with the release of MoTS over the years, this poetry was never released... until now. With narration by My Name is Byf and Moonvald, and some very nice visuals, you can enjoy the first of these poems on YouTube (or above, embedded). Malcolm Guite wrote up his own thoughts of this release (and some more details about the poetry itself) on his website. There's a 17mb booklet that goes along with this release, containing the first poem (The Moon) - we've made a local copy available so that you don't have to navigate MediaFire.

Bungie Foundation Highlighted in Make-A-Wish Newsletter

Bungie Foundation

The good folks over at Make-A-Wish have decided to highlight the Bungie Foundation as a loyal supporter in their 30th Anniversary Newsletter. You can also get Bungie's account of the experience over at the Bungie Foundation's website. It's a great reminder of how our favorite developer gives back to the community with the help of their own loyal fans (you!).

The Evolution of an Interface

Last week, we mentioned that Dave Candland, UI Guru at Bungie, was giving a talk at the Game Developers Conference on Destiny's interface. The actual talk will likely be available at some point on the GDC website, but for now, you can swing by Kotaku to see some cool screen grabs showing some of the ideas the team went through before settling on what we currently know as the Destiny interface. Super-cool! Thanks again, Korny.

The Sounds of Destiny Discussion Panel - now on YouTube

If you hadn't gotten a chance to see the discussion panel streamed last week on Bungie's Twitch channel (and archived there a day later) - maybe, say, because Twitch is blocked at work - you can watch it now, on YouTube (or embedded below). All of the streaming content is stored on this channel, eventually (including, for example, the Bungie Bounty event that took place this past Monday) - bookmark it, and check back each week for new goodies! Thanks, Korny.

Tenacious Design and the Interface of Destiny

One of the Bungie talks to be given at GDC this year is a look at the UI design of Destiny, presented by longtime UI guru Dave Candland. The preview vid released to promote this is really fun (and contains lots of tidbits showing the evolution of the interface, for folks who want to pore over details) - go give it a look! Thanks, breitzen.

Bungie Appoints Pete Parsons as New CEO

Harold Ryan has stepped down as CEO of Bungie today, and Pete Parsons has been appointed as the new CEO. Pete issued a short statement about the change:

I want to personally thank Harold for his friendship, passion, hard work, and dedication in helping make Bungie the great company it is today. As a team, we celebrated many victories and weathered many storms.
To the players of Destiny, I want you to know that my number one priority, and Bungie’s, is and always has been to deliver great games that we can all share together. I believe that Destiny is a one-of-a-kind experience. I also believe you have yet to see our studio’s best work. My new role here at the studio will be entirely focused on fulfilling that promise. 

Congratulations to Pete! No word if Harold will be staying with Bungie.

Destiny: Six Years in the Making

Gamespot has posted the recording of Chris Butcher's talk at GDC this year titled "Destiny: Six Years in the Making." You can watch it over on their site or on their Youtube channel, and here is Bungie's own description of the talk:

At Bungie, we built games based on the Halo engine for ten years. However, by 2008 it was beginning to show its age and there were many core systems that were ill-suited to a modern game development environment. For our new game, Destiny, we sought to develop an engine that would last us just as long as the Halo engine had. This talk will cover the six-year development arc of the Destiny engine, from inception to ship.

(Thanks to uberfoop for posting about it on the forum, even if I didn't notice until after the fact!)

DBO Bounty Cashed In

The DBO Admin Team challenged the Destiny Community last night in the Crucible, and despite DeeJ's best efforts, we managed to deny most fireteams of the exclusive loot. One fireteam who did manage to secure the bounty though was from our very own forums! Beorn has posted the match on Youtube:

And Ragashingo has his own... interesting... take on the match:

"Last night a top flight fireteam from the website Destiny.Bungie.Org (not to be confused with Bungie.net, the official website of Bungie Inc. the company that created classic games like Marathon, Myth, Oni, and Halo) gathered on the aging Xbox 360 platform and hunted for what is known as the Bungie Bounty. In said bounty, a team needed to be randomly matched up with the designated bounty team and beat them in a round of Destiny's (Bungie's newest game) multiplayer mode known as The Crucible.

Defending the bounty (and representing the forces of The Darkness (THE DARKNESS! THE DARKNESS!) were Louis Wu (AKA: Claude, looooong time head honcho at Bungie.org (which should still not be confused with Bungie.net), Beorn (a webdesigner best known for DungeonGrid.com (that could be true!)), XenosKB (the fastest news gather in the north, south, east, west, and middle!), Gwath Gil (aka: Leviathan, perhaps best known for his new and ongoing indie comic Mayflower(www.mayflowercomic.com)), and Malagate (the guy not sporting a Bungie related emblem...). Also with them was DeeJ, Bungie's (.net's not .org's) esteemed community manager.

Representing the forces of The Light were: Up North 65, Speedracer513, BeardFade, ChaosSociety, iconicbanana, and the every popular, beloved, fantastic storyteller and all around great guy Ragashingo.

The battle between these two diametrically opposed forces was a tense one with the lead shifting back and forth multiple times. Fortunately, for all concerned, The Light, a team consisting entirely of Hunters as they were hunting for the Bungie Bounty, prevailed and banished The Darkness (THE DARKNESS! THE DARKNESS!) back to the shadows. Notable moments were where multiple members of The Darkness (THE DARKNESS! THE DARKNESS!) flung themselves off the play area realizing that it was the better way to go, and Beorn's especially bad aim with rockets that let at least three members of The Light live to fight on.

While things started out bleak for The Light, they eventually managed to rally in the third half of the match with their hero, Ragashingo, delivering the last kill of the game against cheating Mythoclast user Beorn with his trusty modified Tex Mechanica hand cannon "The Last Word."

It truly was the last word, at least for the forces of The Light who graciously stepped out of matchmaking giving those who sided with The Darkness (THE DARKNESS! THE DARKNESS!) a much needed, easy, soothing win."

Say goodbye, Ragashingo.

Bungie Pentathlon 2014-2015

Speaking of pentathlons, Bungie had their annual event last week. If you're not familiar with it, it's a long-running tradition of forming the studio into teams based on seniority and letting have at each other in a number of different games (by Bungie and by others). This Bungie.Net article will introduce you to the teams and the games, and you can look back on Bungie's Twitter to see who won what!
