E3 is now over... but there were plenty of interesting bits that appeared during the week that we haven't mentioned. (Thanks to our forumgoers for keeping us up-to-date!) Here's a quick roundup:
Bungie CEO Pete Parsons sat down with WWE superstar Big Show to talk Destiny. There's not a lot of NEW info in this one - but Big Show is clearly a real fan, who knows his stuff! It's a really fun discussion. Thanks, CrisTheeCrappy.
Kotaku hosted a podcast with Luke Smith as one of their guests - and the Destiny discussion is fascinating. If you're looking for some honest behind-the-scenes views of the development process, this one is a must. Thanks, electricpirate.
Giant Bomb hosted some evening streams, and Luke Smith joined one of these, as well. The discussion was pretty entertaining (Luke was one of 5 guests on this one). Thanks, cheapLEY.
Lots of people have been posting 4K Destiny 2 PC gameplay, so that you can get a sense of how much more impressive this content is at 3840x2160 and 60 frames per second. Blackt1g3r pointed out some footage from ArsTechnica, and Xenos let us know about Digital Foundry's offering.
That ought to do it! I'm sure there are more goodies out there - but this should get you started.
One of B.Org's Senior Field Correspondents, Hedgem0ny, Tweets a lot of great Destiny fanart made by a number of individuals from across the globe.. Here's a blatantly-shameful stalking of some of his recent aggregations:
Hedge is apparently the acting cryptarch of Destiny fanart through his Twitter. When a game is first announced, you see a lot of fanart inspired by what its art direction brings to the table. Now when a game launches, you get to see a slightly different breed of fanart created by personal experiences with the game, which is always fun! Maybe Sundays should just become a fanart roundup day?
Well, it looks like we, as a team, are falling down on the job these days; there's been quite a bit of Destiny news released since Monday, but nobody's found time to keep our front-page readers informed. For this, I apologize. Let's see if we can quickly bullet-point the stuff that's been mentioned...
Guardians of Destiny released Episode 68 of their Guardian Radio podcast - this one has DeeJ as a guest, and he discusses lots of stuff, including how Clans and Alliances will work in-game. This one is definitely worth listening to! (Thanks, roland.)
IGN posted a walkthrough of "Rusted Lands' Crucible map, along with gameplay on that map - this one is set on Earth. (If you played in the Alpha, or watched gameplay video from the Alpha, you've already seen an older version of this map.)
The Guardian posted their review of the time they spent in Bellevue recently - it's full of fun tidbits. (Lots of them have been seen in other reviews - but some are unique.) It's pretty hefty, overall.
Gamespot put up a piece discussing the lack of a PC option for Destiny (at least at launch), and the reasons behind this decision. Sort of nice to see an honest discussion of what ISN'T happening - usually, those are made impossible by marketing realities.
