Bungie's Destiny ARG has been happening for years.

  • My God, people, stop calling phone numbers and trying to access websites. There is no ARG. All you're doing is disturbing people. And for the love of everything sacred, somebody go and set /v/ straight, please. These "connections" are inane.

  • Thats a cool video by Clone, never seen it before. I think some of the parrallels seen are a bit contrived, the ODST one and the end of Marathon are cool references though. `Destiny` being a reference to Marathon and ODST referencing Destiny (if that makes sense)

[url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1G-CbxgKKAk[/url][/quote]>CloneOutcast >ARG >lol The Destiny Awaits tagline has been noted since ODST's poster bearing the tagline in the game. I hardly think that guy's video is relevant. As for the image, most of that doesn't really depict an ARG or ARG evidence, just random connections from the past. I cannot accept anything from Marathon as being a "clue" to Destiny. Retroactive supporting evidence only works if the thing being explored was in existence around that time in the same form. The only real connection is Asklon. The Marathon "Destiny" quote is more central to Bungie's story principles, I think, where you essentially embody the same protagonist in every single game of Bungie's. Destiny is likely just a really fitting name that ties a lot of what they're doing together, harking back more as a reference than anything else.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CanineThewolvie I don't really understand how Microsoft could be involved in these things, Destiny was more a "pitch" when Bungie was making Halo 3, and i don't see them interfer during the dev by saying to the team "Yeah guys you can put some references of your next project at the end of ours" I can imagine it's more Bungie choice to put stuff here and there than Microsoft's.[/quote]You are missing my point completely. I'm not saying there is a reference at the end of Halo 3 towards Destiny, at all. In fact, I said just the opposite. I see no connection. And on an unrelated note, I agree with you with the part of Bungie has more of a choice when it comes to creative freedom, except with the end of Halo 3. To me, it makes sense that they wanted to make sure they can finish Halo 3 with the possibility of another installment of their multi-billion dollar franchise. I'm absolutely positive Microsoft wouldn't of allowed Bungie to kill off Master Chief if they tried. Microsoft definitely was making sure Halo 3 would end in a way that they wanted.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Switchfoot4 Yeah, I think Microsoft had something to do with the ending of Halo 3. The concept of a ship orbiting the planet at the end of Halo 3 isn't that great of a connection either. Most of that stuff was already know, or was put together once that trailer was out. The ending of Marathon has been known literally since the Destiny copyright were found. The logo stuff, I don't see the resemblance at all. I'm surprised who ever put that thing together thinks the outer ring of the Marathon is related to an alien ship, seems completely unrelated but he seems knowledgable on Marathon. It's way too distanced to think the outer ring is a symbol of an alien ship.[/quote] I don't really understand how Microsoft could be involved in these things, Destiny was more a "pitch" when Bungie was making Halo 3, and i don't see them interfer during the dev by saying to the team "Yeah guys you can put some references of your next project at the end of ours" I can imagine it's more Bungie choice to put stuff here and there than Microsoft's.

The inner circle is the alien ship and the outer circle was the earth. Its a long shot but I see how the connection was made.

  • That's fanmade... And whatever your second link is, is just, throwing a bunch of different things together. Halo 3 legendary ending was leaving things open. That was believed to be shield world. Maybe it was hinting towards Destiny, but I believe it was nudging Halo fans more than that. Hinting Destiny is totally different than an ARG.
