What is up with Bungie...

And making their games 500-700 years in the future? We now know that "Destiny" will be 700 years in the future Marathon was also 700 years in the future. and Halo was 500 years in the future. Are we missing something? Are they predicting the future? Are they ancient aliens trying to tell us something? Also is it possible that Destiny and Marathon are related?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] carby21 So let's judge from one picture, is destiny a shooter RPGMMO? Or is it just a shooter? I'm still hoping for an mmo. [/quote] I don't think it's an MMO, this is coming out for consoles and I don't think that would turn out well. I'm also thinking it's a first person shooter, from what we've heard people have said it plays a lot like halo.

    I've got to say, that I personally love Sci-fi, as soon as I read the leaked plot snippets that are out there, I realized that this universe is the exact opposite of the Halo universe and the Marathon series in that instead of humanity unifying and trying to colonize the stars, they are down to one last city with some [b][i]thing[/i][/b] just arriving and sitting there for so long we begin to believe that it's protecting us?!? Yeah, I am stupidly excited. Glad the darkness is almost over.

  • Becuase it's fun ^w^ I mean what kind of game would be based in the not too distant future,that'd be silly and would make it uninteresting because *sigh* OKAY THE PUNCH LINE IS BLACK OPS 2

Jones come to domine this world that's why he create Bungie with Seropian and he's trying to convert many people to rally his cause, the thing is he's succeeding. [Edited on 11.28.2012 12:24 AM PST]

  • The thing I find most interesting with Bungie's lore is that all of it, theoretically, could have existed within the Halo Universe. We have no idea how many times that Universe was restarted with the Forerunner or whoever came before them. Not that there is any strong evidence for this, though.

  • A long enough time that there are enough advancements in technology to have cool weapons and space type futuristic things. But not too far into the future, because you don't want to build that much history. Like if it were 5000 years in the future, Bungie would need a backstory for that 5000 years. I'm just glad Bungie doesn't center it's universe around America. In Halo, things on earth were set in Africa, and in Destiny the last city is somewhere in the Phillipines (it seems), more specifically Puerto Princesa (from Sonic John's thread).

Nano machines, life extension, anti-matter weapons and the like.

Let's make a bunch of colonies, then get overrun by Aliens who will murder everything save for one final city, and then hopefully we get bailed out by a giant floating ball."

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] acnboy34 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] acnboy34 I predict -- like their other games -- immense amounts of Marathon references. [/quote] I don't know, they've already used up a lot of the really cool ones.[/quote]Maybe they'll reference Halo. Since you can't reference Halo in Halo.[/quote] Is Bungie legally allowed to leave Halo easter eggs in Destiny? Would they have to get permission from Microsoft since they technically own the IP?

But hopefully, we won't have to worry about global armageddon, galactic annihilation, or intergalactic slavery...

  • Maybe Marathon is the Comet to Destiny's Destiny. Marathon == DLC?

  • A modern setting leaves less for the imagination, and artists, to play with.

  • The future can be anything you want it to be. It is easier and much more fun to tell a story when there is no limits.
