God Rolls - Exotic Hammers, Halo Battle Royale, WandaVision Cuts
Next week is going to be nuts
Alright here we are, my first installment of God Rolls, my weekly article/video round-up so you can catch up on stuff you might have missed. I will likely be playing around with this format as we go, and feel free to make suggestions. Going to break it into a few different sections, and we’ll see how that goes. And I thought I’d try a few recurring features like:
What I’m Playing: Destiny 2, where I’m scraping together pinnacles to almost be ready for GMs this week, but I think I’ll be just short. Genshin Impact, where I just took Hu Tao to level 90.
What I’m Watching: Servant on Apple TV Plus, which had a hell of a performance from Rupert Grint this week. Nancy Drew on HBO Max which I’m watching with my wife. It’s okay.
And if you’re just seeing this post by itself and haven’t subscribed yet, feel free! This may show up in “promotions” in Gmail, so if you could drag it outta there, that would be great.
Now for the recap!

A Warning About ‘Destiny 2’ Umbral Engram Focusing This Season - You are probably not efficiently focusing Umbrals and missing a lot of good drops. Credit to Ehroar for this one.

Wait, Is ‘Outriders’ Launching On Xbox Game Pass? - This may be resolved by the time you read this, but there are significant hints that Outriders may be pulling a last minute fast one and showing up on Game Pass at launch.
Microsoft Stuns With Reveal It Bought Bethesda For Xbox Game Pass - Everyone seems shocked, SHOCKED that Microsoft bought Bethesda to give exclusive games to Game Pass, and they commented on that this week.
A ‘Halo Infinite’ Battle Royale Mode Makes Sense, And Isn’t ‘Trend Chasing’ - The case for why a Halo BR is perfectly logical and would not be chasing a trend for 343. Not a popular opinion apparently!
‘Anthem’ Post-Mortem: When A Dead Game Dies - Some final thoughts on Anthem now that it’s 100% dead.
Elizabeth Olsen Thought Evan Peters Meant ‘WandaVision’ Was Debuting The X-Men, Too - Turns out that even the cast thought Evan Peters showing up in WandaVision meant the great FOX crossover had begun.
The Walking Dead’s Daryl’s First Girlfriend Episode Is The End Of An Era - I was not wild about how The Walking Dead finally decided to explore Daryl’s love life after a decade of dodging it.
Here’s What Was Cut From ‘WandaVision,’ Which Made A Few Things Confusing - Back to WandaVision, a lot of stuff got cut over the course of the show, which explains more than a few loose ends.
