Bungie Makes Fun of Call of Duty’s Fishes with its Bird Simulator in Destiny Commentary Video

One of the most mocked parts of the reveal of Call of Duty: Ghosts during the Xbox One presentation was the “intelligent fishes” engine showcased by Infinity Ward, coming second only to Riley the SEAL dog.

Today Bungie released a new video of the Destiny gameplay reveal showcased during Sony’s conference at E3, and hilarity ensues as the devs make fun of the Call of Duty fishes. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

You know what's sad? The casuals will probably be like " WOAH!!!! The fish move!? No way!!!"
With no sarcasm intended.

The term "AI" is too advanced for that kinda player.

with fish that reacts to you and move away.

Lol that's mean.

@Alithesnake1 I'll show you a 2 N64 games that shows fish reacting to you. On PS3 The Last of Us has Monkey's, Cranes, Birds, Deers, Dogs and Giraffes etc reacting to you as you get closer.

It really surprises me that they even mentioned something so trivial.

Like, c'mon COD, we know you don't innovate, but it's getting ridiculous.
cell989  +   949d ago
they also announced you can now hop over obstacles so the action never stop, Ive been doing that shit since Battle Field 3 and I know there are other games out there that did it before

I wish I could pull up the video I saw on YouTube - it was a guy reviewing the MS E3 show, and to highlight his lack of excitement for COD:Ghosts he showed some very old Mario (3D?) gameplay where fishes move out of your way...

I'm shocked no one at the COD studio wasnt like "guys this isn't really something we should be bragging about"
Abriael  +   950d ago
yeah I saw that one, It was hilarious :D

I think it was from Mario 64

That fish AI sure is advanced tech.

Lol nice one "Our bird simulator" "You shoot at them they fly off". "And that's about it for gameplay."

Just shows COD has to be more inspiring than what they've been doing for the past 6 years.

Destiny, Day one for me.

@Ali, the damn point is that it's a completely meaningless feature, it's not something you want to highlight when you reveal your game. It came off like the most innovative thing they've come up with in like 5 years, well fish and dogs.

Ha ha, go bungie. Even though they're great developers, they never take themselves too seriously. You could see that during the destiny demonstration at E3 as well.
Roper316  +   950d ago
I wonder if they tried real real real hard if they could get 2 schools of fish to swim away at the same time! That would bring the gaming world to it's knees at the sheer awesomeness of such a feat.
Campy da Camper  +   950d ago
After watching that again, I gotta say it looks pretty damn fun. If those public events are seamless this could be a perfect sp/mp hybrid.

That was awesome about the birds simulator... I don;t know what the COD people were thinking when they said that about the fish... I mean that has been around for a long time ask Mario in mario 64 and the fish in the fountain and that...

so excited for this game, its a definite purchase for my PS4. Apparently Bungie has made the game in such a way where you can travel to the worlds from which the new occupiers of the Earth are from and you can fight them there on their turf as well as on Earth's frontiers. This allows Bungie to create new worlds in the future as the add to the experience. They've announced that they will be supporting this game for a long time to come so I am very content with Destiny. It will probably be my first full game purchase unless Infamous comes out before them.
Edit: the ghost is the voice of the short guy from Game of Throwns!! (: he is my favorite character.

Yeah I'm really looking forward to the community aspects of the game. It looks like Bungie is putting their all into this game and, so far, it's shaping up to be an epic masterpiece.
dlocsta  +   950d ago
What is amazing is someone can write and have published an article with the word, or non-word, "fishes". I am no grammar expert and don't claim to be, but we have fallen so far as an intellectual nation we have news reporters ending their sentences with prepositions. How far do we have to fall before we realize there is a problem?

So one company that recycles games makes fun of another company that recycles games? They both suck but at least COD has Zombies and has been recycling for less amount of time, even though they've had more games. Bungies been beating the same horse since 2001!
LAWSON72  +   949d ago
I think it is funny when people judge a company for making sequels. SOme games have such great worlds and stories they can pull off sequels or spin offs. I understand the yearly rehash whining, but Halo is far from that.
Halo 1 (2001)- badass couch coop and lan/local multiplayer and introduced a very good universe

Halo 2 (2004)- Online matchmaking and graphical overhaul along with big changes to the multiplayer

Halo 3 (2007)- Supported by bungie and user content on a whole new level on consoles with forge maps, video recording, photos, and gametypes.

Halo 3: ODST (2009)- introduced firefight, different approach in the campaign, and included all Halo 3 multiplayer content on one disc. It also revived the community with many obtaining the dlc and everyone wanting to earn that recon

Halo Reach (2010)- Graphical overhaul and gameplay changes(both are kind of unnecessary IMO)and improvements to sharing content. also alot of new game modes

Each halo has introduced pretty big changes, except maybe 4 which IMO was kind of a step back. If any game and company has done sequels well it is Bungie with the Halo franchise.

I don't even like Halo that much. Burned out after 2, but I did enjoy firefight mode.
_FantasmA_  +   948d ago
Halo 1: Starts off with an alien attack aboard your ship. Last of your kind and mankinds only hope for survival? Simpsons did it (Half Life). The needleer? Simpsons did it (Half Life again).

Halo 2: Starts off with yet another alien attack on your ship/base. I stayed up til midnight to get this game and when I came home I was disppointed. I became a Halo fanboy and defended this game since it was announced but when I saw that it was the same beginning as Halo 1, I felt like a dumbass and embarrased that I had hyped up this game so much. Same enemies and ugly purple hallways as Halo 1. I stopped playing after like 2 days and ended up throwing the game away years later when I found it in a shoebox.

Halo 3: More of the same, sub HD graphics with the same enemies, guns , and more purple. Also threw the game away (I'm not kidding, I don't feel bad about throwing my money away.)

Halo Wars: Sorry not fooling me again

Halo Reach: Wannabe Call of Duty in space, with same guns and enemies from the previous games.

Halo 4: Bahahah! I'm not stupid. I had already left the sinking ship right after Halo Reach came out and had my eyes opened by the PS3. But I'm guessing its more of the same?

The only cool thing Halo 3 did was the theather mode. Terrible over rated series, but then again what else is there to play on the RROD box?

I don't think they said anything bad in the video. Also had Bungie been kept as the developer of Halo, it wouldn't have been such a recycled game. Bungie is actually a pretty talented developer. I like the worlds they create. In some ways I see Destiny as the new Halo. Its basically the next Halo, made by the people that created it in the first place.

I don't find Destiny very exciting based on this video. I couldn't push myself to finish the documentary to see their jab at the Fish AI cause it wasn't very interesting.

The jab came at the very beginning and it wasn't such a jab, the title is a bit extreme for what they actually said.

Everybody has different tastes and that's cool. I'm personally excited for Destiny. Its made by Bungie and they always create interesting worlds and Destiny is a mix of Sci Fi and Fantasy and I'm in the mood for something like that right now.
CartBlanche  +   949d ago
Its very nice that the water caustics are implemented etc, but come on developers, especially Bungie, Naughty Dog has shown that characters can walk into water and come out looking wet since Uncharted 1, probably earlier on PCs!!

What sort of dry water does this damn planet have? Just like the "bird simulator" has been around for years (checkout papers on boids), games today should also support pixel shader wet netness once they walk/run or are covered in water. If you are going to boast visuals, then implement all the other cool tech and algorithms that are already out there.

"More sad to me... is that Sony fanboys now love and can't wait for a Bungie game."

Know, whats scarier & sadder is that idiots like you throw around the "fanboy" word about others, when in fact, your post reeks more of fanboy-ism than the guys you quoted & "tried" to cut down, ever could.
Seriously mate, he said nothing to put down anyone else on here, or profess his lust for MS or Nintendo's blood & demise, like real fanboys like yourself do.
Your retaliation comments actually just make you look like a Sony hating, MS or Ninty fanboy deuche....Just get over it mate, he wants a PS4 & guess what dickhead, that is his democratic right, he is free to choose, which would not be the case if this world was run by see what I did there.
Just get over yourself & try buying all the consoles, yes, even your "evil babykilling, dog molesting, horse caressing, camel felating SONY", who we all know "obviously had Ken Kutaragi come to your house, sneak in your window, & touch your grossly undersized privates, when you were a little kid......a week ago in other words.

In short you soulless hack, he said nothing ill of anyone, or any company, so STFU & keep your opinions right up your ass, where they belong.
