God Rolls - Early Halo, Exotic Buffs, GTA Disaster
It is a good and or bad week for video games
Welcome back to another God Rolls, was out of town in Chicago last weekend so it fell by the wayside. But I am back and deep down a number of rabbit holes. Is Halo releasing tomorrow? How did this GTA mess happen? Will I ever play Destiny 2 again in November? Answers to follow.
What I’m Playing: I have pretty much 100% converted over to Forza Horizon 5 at this point, though that will get cut short if Halo does indeed launch multiplayer Monday. I love it, despite not being a huge racing person. It’s like happiness the video game. Except when you lose…
What I’m Watching: Succession is literally appointment viewing every Sunday. Arcane continues to be one of the best shows I’ve seen all year. I caught up on my missing 1.2 seasons of Yellowstone and am now current with that megahit. I don’t think I can watch Invasion anymore, it’s too bad.
Okay, onto the recap:
The Top 10 ‘Destiny 2’ Weapon Buffs Coming In The Anniversary Patch - Bungie announced a metric ton of buffs and only a few nerfs coming this December. Here are the ones I’m most excited about.
There’s Finally Good News About Destiny 2’s Missing Catalysts - My good friends at DCP made some news by getting Bungie to say the deleted catalysts are returning for Witch Queen.
Destiny 2’s Vex Mythoclast Needs Better (Or Any?) Bad Luck Drop Rate Protection - Whatever Bungie is doing with Mythoclast drop rates, it ain’t working. Time for a change.
The ‘GTA Trilogy’ Isn’t The New ‘Cyberpunk 2077,’ The Definitive Edition Is Worse - This is shaping up to be one of the worst major releases of the year, and honestly, I think it’s worse than Cyberpunk’s launch in proper context.
Evidence Mounts For Early ‘Halo Infinite’ Multiplayer Launch On November 15 - I have been tracking the spreading rumor/theory that Halo is launching multiplayer tomorrow for the series’ 20th anniversary.
‘Outriders’ Is About To Reveal A ‘Colossal’ Content Update, New Horizon - Yeah uh, check back tomorrow. I got a lot of stuff to talk about with this thing. Embargo lifting.
Microsoft Reveals Massive ‘Forza Horizon 5’ Launch Numbers - Forza Horizon 5 is dwarfing past games in this series, and this is a monster launch for Xbox.
Ah right, I forgot I also played the Lost Ark beta this past week, which was great:
Talking about reflecting on a month without playing Destiny:
Lotta good buffs coming in December, but it did feel like some things were missing:

See you guys soon! Maybe in Halo! Or maybe not!
