The B.net community will make an appearance in Destiny.

Some what of a long read. tldr; provided at bottom of post. Halo CE was the game that attracted people to b.net, but before it was released, Bungie did not have an official place for fans to talk and come up with really wacky, backwards-ass conspiracy theories. It would take several years for the community to grow to the massive size it is today. All the while though, the games they made grew and transformed into a whole new universe. By the time the Community had matured and gained it's own identity, the identity of the Halo universe was complete (or at least very limiting to new stories and information.) Since the game gained an identity before the community, the community took many queues from the games themselves. Just take a look at the name of our local off-topic forum for example. However, Bungie has separated itself (for the most part) from Halo. Now they are developing Destiny. While Halo's identity was already formed by the time the community hit its prime, Destiny's is not. The community has had its rhythm for years now. We are looking at Bungie's perfect chance to really integrate the Community into their new universe. This chance only comes once a universe, so it'll be years before they get another. We don't know if it will be big or small, or if at all (Rhymes lol), but considering their history with easter eggs and what not, I feel their is a good chance for the Community to make some appearances in Destiny. What do you think? How would they do this? What would do you think might add? Maybe, just maybe, a lone employee will read your post and bring it up in the studio. You never know. tldr; GTFO. Not sure if kidding. Anyways, new universe, more chances to integrate the community into it than the halo universe had. [Edited on 09.27.2012 2:26 PM PDT]

  • To be honest, I hope Bungie's new game gives the middle finger to their established following. Not in an offensive or ill-natured manner, but in terms of game-play and Universe. I don't want to see another company bend over and take it from the internet... I want BUNGIE's game, not [i]Bungie's game for YOU[/i].

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Kivell [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DE4THINC4RN4TE Imagine a large wall with tons of names on it. Vietnam memorial style. [/quote] That is actually a pretty neat idea and it is feasible.[/quote] Indeed.

  • Well I hope that bnet itself makes an appearance. Like some computer outside the map that has bnet open on it or something.

  • Great idea. The memorial should be hidden inside a vault.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SharkTooth__ [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DMX1337 I think every name of every character should be DMX1337. Despite the confusion that may or may not ensue, I think we can all agree that would turn up the B.A. factor of the game well past 10.[/quote] Agreeable to say the least. We need to relay this idea to the writers. [/quote] I concur. DeeJ, make it happen.

  • I heard that the community will actually be integrated into the gameplay to some extent. I think it was something about private groups. You're right, though. This is something they could possibly do. After all, they're just as much of fans of us as we are of them. (My apologies in regards to the last sentence. I wasn't sure how to word it)

  • I would like "Vinyl" etched onto a single rock in the game, could be a pebble, I don't even have to see it, but as long as it's there, I'm happy.

  • Have a cutout of [url=http://i.imgur.com/MfyBZh.jpg]this[/url] someplace hidden, just like they did the underpants guy in Halo 3.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MaxRealflugel What about a memorial plaque for some ancient war in their new universe? For those lost in times of great need... [i] Captain Burrito General Foman Sgt flugel SSgt Wolverfrog Captain A. J. General Duardo [/i] That would be nice.[/quote]It disturbs me that Colonel Crazzy was not on that list. If he isn't, this game will be bad.

  • So, um, Bungie. Just saying, I'm sure an easter egg with a single deceased neanderthal would do your game much good.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DE4THINC4RN4TE I just can't get my mind off Captain Burrito, who had a great stache, spherical head, and used burritarangs before falling in battle. He will be missed. DX[/quote]Hell, by the time Bungie's next game comes out I'll be set as a 2nd Lt. anyways (if I get the slot I've worked two years for) so Captain isn't far away. Still, anything less than Colonel Rito and I will be disappoint.

  • I'd love to see a wall or newspaper that says, "Good News everyone!" The general population would think its referencing futurama, but it'd really be me.
