Marathon - 20th Anniversary Retrospective

See video

The Examined Life (Of Gaming) does an excellent and comprehensive retrospective on the Marathon series today. Not much new information in there for longtime fans, but it makes a great primer for those who aren't familiar with it, and gives a shoutout to Aleph One as well.

Out Here in the Wild w/commentary

Bungie unveiled a new ViDoc at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany last week. Not a whole lot of new footage or information, but Blackstar and Narcogen take a look and find some interesting things anyway.

Out Here In The Wild

See video

This Destiny ViDoc was released for GamesCom in August, 2013. Most of the footage and locations still comes from the E3 demo, and the footage that doesn't features locations that have mostly been shown in screenshots, but there are a few new tidbits here and there, including new enemies and weapons.

Brave New World: Bungie's New IP

See video
Bungie GDC Presentation 2013

GameSpot has posted the entirety of Bungie's GDC talk, given by Joe Staten and Christopher Barrett, about building Destiny's world and characters, over in their YouTube channel. Honestly, stuff like this-- showing the depth and breadth of thought that Bungie puts into making its worlds-- gets me a lot more excited about the game than trailers.

Bungie also has embedded a version of the talk over on their own site, but it's a Flash-only player that probably won't work on most mobile devices.

DestinyTracker (blog, YouTube channel) put up this copy of another video Bungie showed during the GDC presentation by Barrett and Staten; a short timelapse sequence showing the editing of a moon base location in Grognok, the Destiny world editor.

Super Marathon on the Pippin Console by Bandai

See video
Super Marathon (Pippin)

Before Halo on the Xbox, before Oni on the PlayStation 2, there was Super Marathon on the ill-fated Bandai Pippin.

Worth a mention today for a couple of reasons-- Bungie's David "Evil Otto" Candland pointed it out today on Twitter, and the Activision contract gives Bungie the opportunity to start work on a Marathon title if certain milestones are met...

For the curious, @Bungie's first console title was Super Marathon, released exclusively for the Bandai Pippin.

What Kind Of Game Is Destiny?

Why, the video kind, of course.

MoreConsole avoids the obvious answer and wonders what Destiny will bring us.

DvLZGaME Tours Bungie

@Bungie Studio Tour

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.
