God Rolls - Destiny Un-Sunsetting, Outriders Endgame, Falcon's Cameo
Guardian Games next week pledge Warlock or else
Alright it has been a long week of Outriders grinding and a bit of Trials of Osiris struggling to get the damn Hunter cape for transmog. Have been getting a lot of game time in before I head out on a trip next week (my first in a year), but I’ll still be writing. And maybe filming.
What I’m Playing: Mostly have been rotating through all four Outriders classes now that they’re in the endgame, getting up in Challenge Tiers. I also went back to Genshin Impact for what might have been its best story quest since launch.
What I’m Watching: Falcon and the Winter Soldier had a great episode this week. I started Snowpiercer on HBO Max which is ehh, okay. I watched Nobody, an incredible action movie I wrote about further down.

Alright, here’s the list:
The Case For Un-Sunsetting ‘Destiny 2’ Pinnacle Weapons (With Exceptions) - Why I think Bungie should un-sunset most of the old pinnacle weapons outside of a few highly problematic ones.
‘Destiny 2’ PvP Is Still Crippled By Stasis, Five Months And Many Nerfs Later - No matter what Bungie does to Stasis, it does not feel like they’re ever going to make it work in PvP.
‘Destiny 2’ Wants You To Pick From 12 Exotics To Get New Ornaments, Time To Rig The Vote - Bungie is having us vote on which overlooked exotic we want to get an ornament uh, next year.
Here Are The Problems With ‘Outriders’ Endgame Expeditions - Outriders needs to do some clean up in its endgame so people don’t end up bouncing off of it.
Here’s The ‘Outriders’ Pyromancer Anomaly Build You’re Looking For - The Pyromancer build I finally landed on for my campaign clear, and into the endgame.
Why ‘Outriders’ Doesn’t Have Solo Self-Revives - People Can Fly has addressed this question directly, and I don’t love their answer.
TV and Movies
The Pandemic Messed Up That ‘Falcon And The Winter Soldier’ Episode 5 Cameo - Falcon got its promised episode 5 cameo, but it was supposed to go differently because of Black Widow’s release date.
Netflix's 'The Circle' Season 2 Hurts Its Core Appeal With Guest Stars - Lol I really do not know if anyone here watches this show but it is my secret reality pleasure and I wrote about it.
‘Nobody’ Is The Rare Film Worth Its Premium SVOD Price - Quite possibly the best action movie you’ll watch this year, Bob Odenkirk is the action star you never saw coming.
I made an entire “live service scale” where I can put games on it from Outriders to Destiny to Cyberpunk
Here’s the scale, for reference:
