Bungie’s Destiny revealed?

Looks…wintry?  Image via Bungie.net

If secrets were an ocean, the internet would be an especially leaky boat.

By accident (or design) early images of Bungie’s ultra top secret, post-“Halo” game, codenamed ‘Destiny’ by those in the know, have leaked online and prompted the presumably sanguine developer to post their own preview image by way of response.  And as that blog post I’ve just linked to suggests, further updates will be coming soon, suggesting that fans of the “Halo” creators action oeuvre might yet get an early Christmas gift to speculate wildly about.

As you can see, the image above suggests that Bungie haven’t gone nuts and come up with a cute IOS casual title – we’re still firmly in the realms of big sci-fi chaps with guns and esoteric hardware, whatever else the game might be about.  Rumours suggest that this universe features a future, space-faring Earth society beaten back to their home planet by a hostile Alien presence in the universe only to be defended by a mysterious alien ship which hovers above our humble blue-and-green marble world.

One to add to my ludicrous pile of shame once it appears in 2013 or 2014, wouldn’t you agree?

He’s NOT the UN Peace Keeper you’re looking for…

I know that times are tough for us all, but surely the BBC can afford to employ people who call the difference between the UN and some made-up dudes from “Halo”?

BBC News mistakes Halo UNSC logo for UN • News • Xbox 360 • Eurogamer.net.

Video game icon Master Chief, from the “Halo” series.  Not presently working for the UN.

Under-Secretary-General for UN Peacekeeping Operations, Hervé Ladsous. Does not have own, multi-million-selling FPS franchise.

I’m thinking that the difference between those gentlemen is wholly apparent, even to those zany funsters at the BBC.  Isn’t it great to know that your license fee money in the UK goes towards employing folks who know what they’re doing?

Give me five minutes and Google Image search and I’m pretty sure that I could find the proper logo.  Call me unduly competent if you must…

Flawless Victory!

I’ve blogged about Freddie W. and his awesome YouTube antics previously so I’m more than happy to direct to another equally talented gang of artists and all-out nerds doing splendidly nerdy, video game related shenanigans.

Meet Corridor Digital and their match-up video of combatants from various franchises doing battle to decide on supremacy.

The result may surprise…

Quick Geek News, October 6 2011

Today’s fix of quick nerd news goes something like this –

Slashfilm has an update on the upcoming Universal theme park attraction for the “Transformers” franchise – with the theme park operator dubbing it, as you might expect, “Transformers – The Ride”.  It’s scheduled for a debut in the Singapore park in December of this year and in the Hollywood park in Spring 2012, blending 3D live action footage and animatronic effects.

As long as it doesn't feature John Turturro in a 3D-thong, I'm happy...

There’s a blog for the ride HERE

SFX, meanwhile, have a story about Warner Brothers cash-mountain in-the-waiting, the making of Harry Potter studio tour, which opens its doors from 31 March 2012 – you can book tickets here from 13 October.

Can we get an endlessly replenishing breakfast, too? That would be sweet...

Mrs Rolling Eyeballs is even now F5’ing as though a Hippogriff’s life depended on it.

The dream team of “Iron Man” helmer Jon Favreau, “Star Trek” scribe Roberto Orci and “Robot Chicken” co-creator Seth Green are working on an ABC tv pilot set in an “X-Files”-like division working out of the White House.

I'm always down for a show which recalls "The X-Files"...

I09 pays tribute to Steve Jobs, who died today at the age of 56, after battling liver cancer. He leaves a legacy of innovative and elegant products, from Apple computers to Pixar films, which made technology accessible to a mass audience and created a proud and passionate fan base of Apple geeks the world over.

Making complex technology simpler.

The Guardian, meanwhile, has Apple insiders recalling Apple’s culture and product design focus.  Even the Metal world gets in the act, via Blabbermouth, with the likes of Wes Borland, Fred Durst, Bret Michaels and more recalling the impact that Apple had on them.

File this one under – “I’ll believe it when I see it” – French website, via Eurogamer, reports that Spielberg-produced “Halo” movie to commence shooting in 2012.

 

Does want?
