Hey. I started a Tumblr. You can follow there too.
The #Destiny 2 mission Zero Hour (heroic) has a sort of alternate ending that requires... an absurd level of simple-ish puzzle solving and tedious switch flipping and...
I think I’m offended? Yes. I think I’m offended at the absurdity of this.
(For those who care: this mission is to get and complete the catalyst for Outbreak Perfected pulse rifle, which I _really_ like)

- Glimmer cap up to 250,000
- Mods don’t seem expensive to apply (think I saw 500 glimmer in one example)
- Showed off a new Titan finishing move
- More stats return from early D1 like intelligence, strength, etc.
- Armor still has a damage element (void/arc/solar), mods had badges. But they either didn’t cover that or I missed it
Deej had a great line about not sharing too much: “If you know everything about this game when it launches on October 1, we’ve done you a great disservice.”
- Armor 2.0 looks awesome
- Armor perks will be applied via mods
- mods require slots, better mods = more slots
- armor they previewed all had 10 slots, I’m not sure if this is across the board
- You upgrade/masterwork armor to enable useable slots
- Mods are unlocked, not consumed (so once gained, you can apply them everywhere, reuse them, etc)
I’m kind of annoyed about the timing on these new PS4 controller colors. https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2019/8/15/20806849/sony-playstation-dualshock-4-controller-fall-colors-purple-red-rose-gold
My original white controller from the #Destiny 1 launch edition finally crapped out, and one of my only replacement options was the gaudy blue camouflage. 😕
My favorite line from Bungie's Armor 2.0 #Destiny stream so far:
“If you know everything about this game when it launches on October 1, we’ve done you a great disservice.”
They're previewing some things, but as it's been from day one, they want us to explore and learn and collaborate to discover the rest. I like the way he phrased that.
Btw, if you’re not a Nazi, a respectful person, and looking for a wholesome, supportive community to hang out, learn, and LFG with Destiny folks and for other games/platforms, I’m happy to put a word in for you.
One catch: it’s Slack, not Discord. But it really is full of great folks who are helpful, patent, and just great to play with.
A Slack chat about our wholesome 450+ #Destiny community (and for other games!), turning an icky Pepe frog situation into a happy chuckle, and realizing how unfortunately rare this goodness is.
Purple crystals = guardians, right? 😄

Had a rough run through Gambit yesterday, trying to finish my last triumph to get the Bad Juju catalyst so… yeah I feel this one. 😄
(I got it, btw. Now just need to kill *checks notes* around 14 billion enemies to unlock it. 😕)
Rocket League won’t have loot boxes later this year https://www.polygon.com/2019/8/6/20757348/rocket-league-crates-leaving
Epic owns Rocket League. The company also removed boxes from Fortnite’s PvE mode. Nice.
This video still makes me happy.
Failin' at Destiny with Hench & Friends
Hot #Ninja take: I bet Microsoft didn't have to pay him much at all, they just handed him an Xbox controller.
_Maybe_ they had to throw in a free coupon for the Xbox Design Lab.
(I'm not into the PS controller and don't like PC gaming)
Please support my Kickstarter to raise funds to launch a Change.org petition to make Bungie give us the ability to track more than three pursuits at once. #Destiny2
