God Rolls - Crow Redeemed, Outriders Hype, Fake Captain America
Oh and I'm still waiting for that Cyberpunk patch
Another week down, and this spring has been pretty busy for my little realm here, quality Destiny content, non-stop Genshin events and now I’m gearing up for the release of Outriders next week, which will likely consume a whole lot of my time over the next month (at least).
What I’m Playing: Did the new Proving Grounds strike/quest this week in Destiny, FINALLY got a good Keening roll. Daily Genshin Windblume chores. No more Outriders demo, time to set that down and start from scratch at launch on Xbox.
What I’m Watching: A ton this week actually. Fully caught up with For All Mankind on Apple TV. Did the first three Invincible episodes. New Falcon, Superstore finale (which was great!). My wife is watching some cheerleader drama on Netflix that desperately wants to be Euphoria.

Alright, so what happened this week? Here’s the grand breakdown of the highlights:
How To Be Less Bad At Destiny 2’s Trials Of Osiris, As Taught By The Pros - Ascendant Nomad and illPhysics spectated some practice Trials games of mine and gave me advice on how to be better. It really helped!
The Best ‘Destiny 2’ Seasons, Ranked: Chosen Wins - I ranked all the Destiny 2 seasons so far and I deemed Chosen the winner, which was controversial for some, though others agreed with me.
‘Destiny 2’ Comes Full Circle On Uldren Sov With A Brilliant Mirrored Moment - The storytelling in this season has been off the charts, and the narrative team drew a ton of parallels in the peak of Crow’s story this week.
The Growing Sense That Outriders Could Be ‘The One’ - One of my most popular articles of the week, I explore why Outriders may be the game to get a lot of its looting right at launch, unlike its competition.
Ten ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Free DLC Names May Have Leaked - Allegedly the names of ten future Cyberpunk DLCs have leaked which may give us a clue about what’s on the way after patch 1.2 (if that ever gets here).
Why Is ‘Fortnite’ Hiding The Rock’s Starring Role In Season 6? - The Rock appears to be playing a major character in this new season of Fortnite, but both he and Epic appear to be hiding it for some reason?
‘Genshin Impact’ Update 1.5 Leaks: Everything We Know From Release Date To New Characters - We’re still in 1.4, but Genshin Impact 1.5 is shaping up to be a big one, and here’s everything we know from leaks and datamining about what’s coming.
‘The Falcon And The Winter Soldier’ Starts Its Battle With Racism - Disney appears to be letting Falcon take on racism directly in this series, which is something we have barely ever seen in the MCU so far.
Amazon Prime’s ‘Invincible’ Premiere Makes ‘The Boys’ Look Tame - Since I wrote this, I have watched all three of the debut episodes and man this show is something else.
You Must Watch Netflix’s ‘Formula 1: Drive To Survive’ Even If You Hate Racing - I stray out of my lane here to tell you to watch a Netflix show I thought I would hate, but I absolutely love it, and now I am literally watching a live F1 race today because I am that into it now.
Talking about why PS5 is annoying me to the point where I’m mostly switching to Xbox Series X for future games:
Watch me play through the new Proving Grounds strike and give my thoughts on it:
Talking about where my expectations have landed for Outriders just a few days ahead of launch here:
