  1. This is the game in pre-Alpha state, gameplay isn't even fully nailed down at this point. The picturesque beauti-scapes and the wizard-type code shooting into your retinae and running through your system will be post-Beta-licious by the time Destiny is complete.
  2. Good point about the summer release, I hadn't really thought about that. In the past their games have been primarily targeted for a much older audience. Betas I know nothing about but that also makes sense, especially with a summer launch. And of course we know we both have the same attitude about the fruition of the game and final release date.
  3. Found this in another thread I was updating: , Did some digging and found some more release dates worth throwing out there: Infinity:October 15, 1996 Durandal: November 24, 1995 (Macintosh) September 6, 1996 (PC) August 1, 2007 (XBLA even!) Marathon:December 21, 1994 Pathways Into Darkness:August 1993 Personally I don't think Activision, as powerful as they may be, can throw enough weight around to shake Bungie from a Fall/Winter release. Oni, as far as I know, was delayed because of Rockstar Games' involvement. It released for PS2 in March of 1997, and PC/Mac in January of the same year- much later than expected. I don't think Bungie had very much involvement in the development of Halo Wars at all, which released February 28, 2009. They really love their Fall/Winter release window, however as of now we have no real leads.
  4. Keep in mind this game is probably coming out next year in the fall. In that context they're amazing, they need something to playtest while they build, this is it. HAVE NO FEAH
  5. Yeah long night watching the Heat game yesterday, sorry about that.

  7. Never teabag intentionally but I have done it by accident in Team Snipers when taking cover sporadically whilst atop an enemy corpse, seriously. Feel bad about it every time. Whenever anyone teabags me I let my armaments do the teabagging for me.
  8. Hmm a lot of good character choices here. I'd have to go with either Beowulf...Or Déjà Just because I loved reading any passage from the books with them in it, so interesting to learn about all the other AI. Plus there's that whole thing about how cool they are.

  11. Hate to be that guy but just to clear this up, in this article this you can find the quote; Destiny is powered by a new, internally developed set of engines, the product of six years worth of development, according to engineering lead Chris Butcher. "Our engine is fully multi-threaded for performance on all platforms, both today and for the next 10 years," Butcher said. The Destiny engine is completely new, so before anybody goes into a frenzy about similarities to Reach, just remember Bungie has created a brand new engine completely from scratch. Please have faith in the people who brought you Halo -a game that in some of your eyes can never be equaled!- to bring you something glorious yet again.
  12. I'm right there with you guys, I really hope they are trying to go hard on Playstation so that new Sony fans will be hooked early on. However it is possible that Microsoft is choosing not to highlight Bungie, only time will tell I suppose. My friends are pretty heavy on Xbox and I've pre-ordered for Xbox, I'd be a little more than disappointed if Bungie didn't include some exclusive/matching content by at least "Destiny 2." I can't imagine they would simply blow over the Xbox fanbase, it doesn't make any sense. The question is why are we not seeing or hearing any hint of anything for Xbox?

  14. Bungie has not hinted at a release date, only announced Destiny will appear on next-gen consoles, not to be confused with it being a release title. But there is this; a leaked document which outlines a release schedule of titles every other year with successive DLC following games in even years. This would start with a fall release of 'Destiny 1' in Fall 2013 and continue into 2020 with the fourth DLC release. There is also this; a legal investor statement put out by Activision stating that they have "not included the launch in its 2013 outlook and there should be no speculation or expectation of a different result." However as we have seen, Destiny is not planned to be rated T as the leaked contract reported, it is expected to be rated Mature. This makes it appear as though this contract, which I believe was made public by legal proceedings regarding the Infinity Ward-Activision schism, has been reworked or at least is not completely accurate. Look forward to E3 for a possible release date. -Reach's reveal to the public was on June 1 for E3 2009, a full year before it's release- -ODST was first in 2008--Halo 3 was at 2006 E3--Halo 2 was revealed via in 2002--Halo CE was shown at Macworld way back in 1999- All revealed, usually at E3, at least a year before an autumn release. 2014 isn't too far from now.
