Nope, not doing one.

Bungie's latest Mail Sack is up. Here's a highlight:

MastaSin In Destiny, can we play as the aliens or are we locked to the human race? And if we are, why are we locked to the human race? What's the reason?

Note by Recon54:

"by: Bryan "Brymen" Mendoza

A film homage to Marathon netplay, featuring the music of Underworld ("Cowgirl") coupled with rapidfire editing of net films, chapter screens and other artwork.

Remember, this is years before any Halo montages."

The title is in reference to the "security officer" protagonist of Bungie's Marathon series, who is the 10th and "missing" military cyborg.

David Candland of Bungie reminds all the fans via Twitter that there's only one place to go if you want to beta test Destiny, and it's here:

Arabic language gaming site DvLZGaME has posted a video tour of Bungie (okay, Bungie's lobby). The video is in arabic, of course, but is still worth a look if you haven't already seen some of the Halo memoribilia Bungie has amassed.

Incidentally, it appears that Bungie has a small but motiviated fanbase in the Arabic world that is using Twitter to lobby for the Arabic localization of Destiny-- I'm guessing that Halo missed out on this treatment.

Over at DestinyHub thesirchelios has written an article guessing at what we might expect from the different classes and factions of Destiny. So far there appear to be three known human Guardian classes (Hunter, Warlock, Titan) and five factions (Dead Orbit, Future War Cult, New Monarchy, Osiris and Seven Seraphs).
