Aye, admittedly I haven't played Dark Souls, and my knowledge of the 'franchise' is garnered from a 30 minute session with Demon Souls. By loot I meant items that are obtainable and offer character customisation, and in that respect it looks like I was correct judging from the new materials.

Are those the kinds of features that get advertised for an MMO, or a single-player game? I feel like they're implied with MMOs.

According to the documents, Bungie has agreed to create four "sci-fantasy, action shooter games" in a project code-named "Destiny" (for which Bungie filed trademarks last year). The first will be an Xbox exclusive (360 with the option for its successor) in fall 2013 (versions for other systems would follow one year later) with followup games on Xbox successor, PS3 successor, and PC in 2015, 2017, and 2019. Four DLC expansions, code-named "Comet," are included in the deal, due fall 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020.

If Wii U owners express interest in the game, I'm sure they will include the platform in their plans for release.

Which alien are you talking about? The ones on the poster? Or the figure? I think the figure guy looks like something out of John Carter tbh...

In terms of ball breaking challenge and theme.... no, definately not.

In terms of innovative online interactions, i don't see why not. We know the themes of Destiny are more T rated.

Challenge is an open question and honestly, it's one of my biggest concerns about destiny. Halo does a great job of opening up lots of rewarding difficulty paths, mostly through skulls, and meaningful challenge settings. Bungie obviously believes they have a possible massive success here, can they make sure to carve out an area for the fans who loved the challenge of Halo legendary?

Dark Souls isn't a loot game, but it is a (mostly) open-world game with fully integrated co-op and competitive multiplayer modes, which is I think part of what Bungie is trying to shoot for with Destiny.

Not sure how retailers handle this kind of thing though. It's been a long time since I've pre-ordered, and I've never done it with a game that might be cross-gen.

You can just put down deposits on X platform. For something like Skylanders and Disney Infinity people could pre-order X, Y, Z character with no knowledge of what they would be; they just play an order on however many characters they wanted.

Yeah, this has been my work desktop since the day it was released. Bungie's art is just absurdly good; coming off Halo 4 it's just striking how great their designs are for Destiny from what we've seen.
