Well Christian, thanks for the info. It's good to know people directly involved in things read this forum (and not just the bungie forum regs).


First off, am I to understand that the PC Action and PC Games movies are two different movies? If so, then because of no web distribution, we Americans aren't going to get to see the PC Action movie EVER, and the Europeans won't get to see the American movie? That doesn't really seem fair to either party...
...anyway, I think this whole limit on web distribution's not like the game isn't FARTHER into developement than it used to be (this is why bungie didn't want the first oni movie distributed). It forces people to buy a mag for ONE article in it (this being a PC mag, I doubt there will be anything else in it we Mac users will find worth buying), and cuts those who DON'T buy it out of the loop.

What gives? This is NOT standard Bungie-like THIS the effect Take 2 is having on them? Woe is me, I hope not!

I sure hope Bungie doesn't get worse and lose my trust. Otherwise, the only game company LEFT for me to trust will be Ambrosia (and I'll never be able to be 100% sure again).
(: Jägermeister :)
