God Rolls - New World Grind, Savathun Showdown, Squid Game Fever

RIP PC 2019-2022

Welcome to another installment of God Rolls, typed up on my laptop because my PC is *super* dead, and I am getting another one shipped out some time next week though PowerGPU, after many recommendations. No, I am not blaming New World, as I think it’s a separate issue and it didn’t blow my GPU or anything. Such is life. Anyway…

What I’m Playing: At this point, mostly New World, given that you can spend like three hours doing nothing but fishing, but it’s enjoyable in its own way. Doing a tiny amount of Destiny seasonal stuff. Playing a big AAA game that I don’t think I can talk about until Wednesday on console.

What I’m Watching: After doing a double dose of Squid Game and Midnight Mass, have toned down binging to just my weeklies. I do like Apple TV’s Foundation, but it just feels like it’s missing…something.

On to the recap:

Destiny 2

A ‘Destiny 2’ Character Is Going To Die, But Who? - Bungie has more or less confirmed a character is going to die, now that they’ve reissued Spoiler Alert (the gun), so who will that be?

A Theory About ‘Destiny 2’ Duplicate Drops That May Explain A Lot - There’s a theory being passed around about why RNG doesn’t always feel like RNG with some Destiny drops.

Some Important ‘Destiny 2’ Story News For Lost, Witch Queen And Beyond - Destiny’s narrative team has done a number of interviews lately which I think have made some news in a few important areas regarding the story of this season and Witch Queen.

Ranking Every ‘Destiny 2’ Seasonal Activity From Best To Worst - After a viral tweet, I sat down and made an actual list out of this. I expect disagreement.

Other Games

The new Stasis builds you can make with Ager’s and the new mods are truly insane:

My first impressions of New World as a whole, a game I am liking more than I thought, with a few exceptions:
