Destiny - Community Thank You video


Quote:
This summer has been an amazing adventure for Bungie. We've traveled from E3 to gamescom to introduce the world to Destiny. Every step of the way, our community has greeted us with passion and enthusiasm. This is a thank you note to you, along with a hint of what is yet to come.

I hope this doesn't become a thing. It's nice of developers to thank the community, but I don't want this to serve as a reason to re-cut game footage we've already seen with footage of fans in lines at events just to get the game mentioned in another press cycle.

As game coverage gets better, about the only thing I want to see anymore are people playing the actual game. I love developer walktrhoughs and sneak peaks. Pre-release demos are also welcome, but cinematic trailers, live action trailers, thank-you cuts like this. . . they can all die in a fire.

I agree with you and this was a particularly cheesy variation. It's pure advertising and psychological manipulation. They show the sheep what the rest are interested in so the they follow the herd. You have to bump those pre-order sales every way possible. I'm glad Sci-Fi is making a come back I just wish it wasn't all the generic Mass Effect Halo hybrid unoriginal mass appeal shit like this game... Hopefully it plays well...

Something about the art-style doesn't appeal to me.

Yes! Word! (Sorry, I had to make my reply long enough)

The last scene with all the employees yelling is all they needed to show. Exciting-looking game, though.

dunno, just doesn't do anything for me, the combat seems flaky, reminds me of call of duty running around in circles. not that i've bothered with call of duty since it left ww2.

Marketing teams get absolutely catatonic if they don't feel their product stays as relevant as twitter feed with Parkinson's. Bungie is going to hype itself into mediocrity if they don't tone it down.

A real 'thank you' is new footage. Not this.

Maybe I haven't been keeping up, but alot of the footage was new to me.

Also, the guy in the red shirt in last scene with employees cheering was put on indefinite leave after the recording of this video.

But who wants to watch an 8-second video?

Also, what the hell is Vine?
