Bungie Unveils Its Destiny

The studio that brought Halo into this world has said farewell to Master Chief and the highly praised 10 year project and unveiled their newest endeavor: Destiny. Today Bungie released a CG teaser of their newest first person shooter. In a few weeks, at E3, actual gameplay footage will be shown of the “always-on” massively multiplayer adventure.

Destiny will be released in 2014 and will be available on 4 platforms: the next generation of Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as as well as the older PS3 and Xbox 360.

The trailer was directed by Jon Favreau, of Iron Man 1 and 2, and is exceptional. It’s Halo, Star Wars, and GUNS…lots of GUNS.

New Halo 4 Video @ E3

Its finally here.  Opening the E3 convention in Los Angeles, Microsoft unveiled a juicy video of Master Chief in action.

I love how similar this footage looks to the trailers for the new movie Prometheus.  The two share the same sense of alien horror and similar style in spacecraft/alien hardware.

I also love how similar this game is to Halo 1.  It begins with a crashed UNSC ship.  The player and the Master Chief share a sense of wonder as they explore the new planet, coupled with an atmospheric sense of mystery.  Does anyone else appreciate how cutie the grunts are while simultaneously acknowledging that you have no problem slaughtering them?

Welcome back, Chief.  We missed you.
