Are You Ready For Bungie’s Destiny?


Damn, that’s a cheesy title. But nonetheless, I hope you’re ready for a big splash of Bungie in your face because their latest project, Destiny, will be unveiled February 17th. As in this Sunday. Destiny Screenshot

A Facebook page and Twitter account have gone live, so make sure you follow that shit for the latest and greatest. But if that won’t hold you over, try this game Bungie has created that has something to do with Destiny. Just don’t ask me what, because it involves thinking and quite frankly my brain is toasted for the day.

Over two years ago I ran into a Bungie employee right after they had signed their publishing deal with Activision. I remember having a conversation with him, but unfortunately I didn’t have the balls to dig too deep and ask the million dollar questions — but nonetheless, I blogged about it on my IGN Blog. (It was before the birth of!)

This is dated September 29th, 2012:

“As a friend and I were chit-chatting at an outside table (did I mention the weather was GORGEOUS?) he pointed to a man sitting behind me with two children and I noticed the man was wearing a shirt that had the infamous BUNGIE logo on the back. For a second I was internally debating with myself whether or not I should say something, but like I said that debate only lasted a second. 

I asked him if he worked for Bungie, and he said he did. I then congratulated him on Reach which prompted him to politely thank me and ask if I had played it yet. I sheepishly said no, but that it was on my list of things to play (just like a thousand other titles from past-gen consoles as well—but I didn’t make mention of that). I asked if he was ready to move onto “bigger things” (aka hinting around Bungie’s multi-plat publishing deal with Activision) and he said something to the effect that it’s a little scary moving on, which is understandable. 

He then pointed to the image on the FRONT of his shirt and said, “Actually, this shirt is from our upcoming game.” Unfortunately for me, the image was obstructed due to the bagginess of the shirt.

I could have demanded that he show me stretched out his shirt to give me a better look (and maybe that’s what I should have done) but I didn’t want to be (what I thought would have been) obnoxiously nosey seeing as I had shown no interest in his shirt before. I managed to sneak a peek but unbeknownst to me I was nearing the point of exhaustion and suffered delirious-short-term-memory loss. I glanced down at it and said, “Oh! I was wondering what that was!” ::awkward chuckle:: 

After a few more casual minutes of chit-chat, we said our goodbyes. 

Looking back on it now, I wish I would have taken a better glance at the image. The best description I have is that it resembled a luminescent hand (and here is where I know I am 100% completely off of my rocker) that, I kid you not, looked like it was throwing up the shocker.  Of course this can’t be true but is only a result of my delirious, albeit perverted, state of mind and an obstructed image, but I gave you the best I got. 

Because I seriously doubt the motto for Bungie’s new IP is going to be “Two in the pink, one in the stink”.

Ummm, looking at the logo I can’t really say I see the resemblance …::tilts head:: Yeah. I must have been totally delirious.
