This looks boring lol, there is barely any gameplay. I still don't understand what it is about.

PS: yayyy Jeff got new mic.

Edited by Devildoll

@jeff

take a look at 9:40 - 9:50, your mic is cutting out.

this game sounds kind of like a mix of borderlands and diablo, i'll take that.

This sounds a lot like the early Halo talk, from back when it was a Mac exclusive. Interesting that they never really got away from wanting to make that game, I am glad that their tastes have matured though, I could never really get behind the big green space marine with the motorcycle helmet. The art looks fantastic, seems a very peculiar choice not to develop for PC though.

dude-bro guild wars?

sounds like it to me.

I tried to pre-order at Bungie.net for their 'special content'. They blocked my ISP. Good start Bungie. I'm off the bandwagon. It looks like Rage/Halo/Sphere integrated with bullshit social media. Ambitious? Yes. Moneygrubbing? Yes. Generic? Absolutely

It's so generic I couldn't wait to pre-order it!!!

This game seems cool and different with a great sci-fi setup. However, I'm not to into the multiplayer focus and focus on "dungeons" and other MMO concepts. With dungeons and loot comes grinding and probable micro transactions. I would much rather have a more narrative focus and a single player story with optional co-op. Thats just my opinion and I think this game should be able to find an audience. Also, activision would have to be insane to not port this to PC.

Man I hope the Sony meeting on Wednesday isn't this vague. Great video Jeff, more info than Bungie's video.

I understand the second and third episodes in this trilogy will be called Cinnamon and Fantasia.

Yeah, im in.

Also the audio is skipping and its FUCKING ANNOYING!

I wonder why they hate PC so much.

i am frightened a/o aroused :\

When they say "working on it for a decade" does that mean the game won't be out within the next ten years or is that the planned lifespan of the game?

Posted by Alekss

the sound issues in this video are maddening

Edited by Castiel

I guess my level of enjoyment depends on if you need to know the people you play with. If it's like Journey and it doesn't really matter who you play with then I might be interested. But if it's a game that's best when you play with friends then it's not for me.

I simply don't know enough people that are interested enough in playing videogames for that too be fun. If I had more friends that were into games then that might be really cool, but unfortunately I don't.

I wonder if the game will feature actual songs with lyrics now that Paul McCartney is attached to the project?

The more and more I hear about this, the more and more I wonder if this is what Blizzard is working on with Bungie, and is Titan.

I fucking love that Jeff literally just rolled out of bed and didn't even bother fucking with his hair. I'm not being sarcastic. That is absolutely exactly why I love these mother fuckers on GB. It makes me want to strip to my underwear while listening to @jeff. That was way less creepy in my head.

Posted by HyperionXR

Personally, after watching the ViDoc I'm pretty underwhelmed. No PC release? With such a focus on how our character looks, why first person perspective? Why did they show essentially zero gameplay for this "reveal"? Why not wait till you have something substantial to show? I love Bungie, but for me, this reveal was pretty weak.

Halolands with PSO2 style missions... Hmm... I want to believe.

The longer you play, the more cocoa butter and glitter accrues on your character.

Edited by RetroVirus

I am willing to give this game a chance. I also like "magic powers".

Jeff is getting ready for his Zell cosplay here.

Sounds cool but at the same time, what a waste of an event. They are going to be stretching this out hard.

Edited by Superfriend

Preview event seems like a total bummer. I mean, you guys could have learned all this crap from the vidoc they released. Yeah, must have been frustrating for you guys.

Might I suggest not going to any freaking preview events anymore?

The game seems really cool and ambitious from what I´ve seen in that Vidoc.

Edit: The noise cancelling/mic issues are pretty unfortunate too.

Edited by Rapid

In the way Jeff describes it, the game's setup sounds to me like Monster Hunter; central town with multiple zones you can then travel to. like which I would not be oppose to.

who wants to take bets when this generates a "paltry" 2 or 3 million in revenuei activision closes bungie down or relegates them to making COD maps?

Posted by MemphisSlim

A little weird seeing the excited press about this game. I'm gonna leave this here:

http://www.destinythegame.com/ So hyped.

For reference. It seems interesting.

Posted by Tomorrowman

While I love the wrapper surrounding Halo, I don't like playing it that much. I'm happy to see them trying something a little different just to see how Bungie can make a game feel when shooting something other than Elites.

Posted by Peve

Sounds interesting, shame the audio is being weird.

Posted by Falconer

I now can only experience video game previews in a video format.

Posted by DeanoXD

So activision will be releasing a online focused multiplayer first person shooter designed,built, and maintained for ten years by bungie. So this is just going to be CoD for halo fans? Which is fine if thats what halo mp players want, but to me at least it looks like the next ten years of gaming will look a lot like the last 8 years for gaming.

Oh can anyone say bungie elite, only $50 a year and you get all the dlc maps. which you will have to buy each time a new expansion is launched. And i have no problem with that either, but if it does happen people have to quit bitching about dlc revenue streams in all games because we as a hobby did it to ourselves.

@hyperionx3: No PC release is not a surprise. Also, the perspective a game has is related to gameplay. Not whether or not you can customize your guy. That's obviously there for the online differentiation like it usually is.

Edited by thatdutchguy

Something wrong with your mic Jeff.

Posted by lanerobertlane

Wouldn't have been more cost effective just to e-mail those images and the press sheet rather than ship the media out there considering they didn't actually see the game.

Posted by Seppli

Not much, but enough to get me excited.

Bungie designed the framework for the most satisfing and fun *Versus AI* FPS gameplay, and delivered a bunch of great games with the Halo games, which pretty much singlehandedly put the Xbox on the map.

Yes, I want to believe they'll pull off Destiny. The question weighing on my mind the most? How open-worldish will it really be... and what's going to be instanced and how.

Posted by I_smell

It's hilarious how sites like GameTrailers will have huge countdown features for this a week beforehand, and GiantBomb is so far in the complete fucking opposite direction.

I'm thinking sci-fi Guild Wars.

Posted by The_Nubster

This looks like Mass Effect and Halo got together with Planetside and Dust and had a wild orgy, resulting in two babies (one of Mass Effect and Halo, one of Planetside and Dust), who then grew up together, falling madly in love and having their own child, which is Destiny.

Posted by SilverTorch1

Nothing about this excites me, its not as big of a departure from Halo as I would have liked.

Of course, but this is Activision. They love their publicity stunts.

Posted by Cold_Wolven

I still don't know about this game, terms like raid make me cringe and and I prefer to go solo.

Posted by HarkinNecro

Show me something new and i'll get excited. Currently meh but it's early days

Jeff, your noise gate is set too low (or high). :)
