Do guardians get PTO? Or just, like, time off for good behavior?

The 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)

In case you weren’t able to watch Bungie’s armor 2.0 preview for yesterday, a recap (

- 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.

My original white controller from the 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 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.

Bungie is about to start a livestream to preview how armor and customization will change in Shadowkeep. 🤩

A Slack chat about our wholesome 450+ community (and for other games!), turning an icky Pepe frog situation into a happy chuckle, and realizing how unfortunately rare this goodness is.


Heads up community: I have it on pretty solid info* that Jotunn is just a deep-fake. It doesn’t exist.

*whereas pretty good info = my bitterness over it STILL not fucking dropping from Bergusia

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. 😕)

Why does Bungie call their studio videos “ViDocs?” Documentaries are basically understood as videos, right? Seems weird to express “video documentary” when we know it’s a video.

Seems kinda like when people say “I need to hit the ATM machine.” The... Automated Teller Machine... Machine?

’s new Menagerie mode is *chef’s kiss* IMO, and I’m pretty hyped for Shadowkeep in the fall.

It’s still early, but Bungie’s split from Activision _seems_ to be turning out even better than I expected.

Now I just need to start more and more regularly. My group has a good time making each other laugh, and I’d love to share that if we can make it click.

is one of those games on which I oscillate. I thoroughly enjoy it, but occasionally burn out and sub in other games for some or all of my play time.

But recent additions like Forsaken and quests for unique weapons that actually interest me have seriously brought me back. I recently scored the Outbreak Protocol (still need the catalyst), Truth, and am now working on the Lumina.

I’m much more of a PvE than PvP player, but some Gambit Prime quests have got me.

One of my favorite silly moments from yesterday’s stream: you can’t take The Traveler into the Genius Bar 😄
