God Rolls - Ability Rework, Arcane Finale, Halo Live
But seriously watch Arcane I don't care if you hate League
Oh hello there. It’s time for a fresh entry of God Rolls as we head toward the tail end of what has been a wild month in gaming, and should be an exciting early part of December as well, given the 30th Anniversary/Halo launch happening more or less simultaneously. But I get to cheat because I got the Infinite campaign early heh heh.
What I’m Playing: I hopped back into Destiny for the first time in like a month to help my friend farm for a good Judgement roll in Prophecy. But mostly I have been playing Halo, both the early release multiplayer (I was right!) and the campaign I previewed this past week.
What I’m Watching: So I broke down and subscribed to Showtime, at least for the time being. My main impetus for doing this was the show Yellowjackets, which I’ve heard amazing things about. But I’m also watching the new Dexter which is okay, I suppose, and I did all of American Rust which I did not love. I also did Wheel of Time which I don’t think will be as big as Amazon wishes it will be. Finished Arcane and as of now, it’s my show of the year.
Alright, onto the recap. I guess I’ll still do a Destiny section even if things are pretty light these days.
The Five Biggest ‘Destiny 2’ PvE Ability Buffs Coming This December - Okay we did have a huge TWAB this week at least, which detailed some core changes coming to pretty much every ability in the game.
‘Destiny 2’ Is Pulling All Its Expansions From Xbox Game Pass On Console Soon - Destiny 2 is leaving Game Pass on console and it isn’t launching Witch Queen there either, so I guess maybe that didn’t go so great in the end?
‘Outriders’ Just Schooled ‘Destiny 2’ On A Proper Transmog System - Outriders just debuted what is essentially the dream Destiny transmog system, where everything is easy and free.
Screw it I’m doing a Halo section, it was a big week.
Microsoft Launches ‘Halo Infinite’ Multiplayer Three Weeks Early For Xbox Anniversary - Well, it wasn’t a conspiracy theory after all, they actually went and did it.
‘Halo Infinite’ Campaign Preview: Grappling Hooked - I got to preview the campaign and I can talk in depth about the first few missions and the open world.
Here’s How ‘Halo Infinite’ Is Changing Its Battle Pass, Plus How To Get A Free Reward - 343 already heard everyone that battle pass progression is bad so they made some week one changes.
‘Outriders’ Sees 1,000% Playercount Spike After New Horizon And Yes, You Should Play Again - Outriders is on sale and got a big new patch. Now is the time to get on board, and I swear it’s really fun.
If Sony Can Stop Selling ‘Cyberpunk 2077,’ It Can Stop Selling ‘Call Of Duty’ - My take on how Xbox and Sony can take a stand against Activision Blizzard if their board won’t remove Bobby Kotick and make major changes.
‘Battlefield 2042’ Has Entered Steam’s 10 Worst Reviewed Games Of All Time List - Battlefield 2042 has graduated from "rough launch” to “utter disaster” pretty quick here.
Part 1 of my video on the Forsaken Pack and all the nonsense that comes with it:
Part 2 where I go deeper into the confusion surrounding the Middle-Tree Subclass availability specifically:
Here’s my thoughts on the Halo campaign stuff I’ve played so far:
I always have to check my phone to make sure I have an exclusive Evie pic ready to go this week. I always do:
Back when she was Chicago-bound a bit ago. Her first trip there!
See ya soon.
