God Rolls - Outriders Wipes, Destiny Nerfs, Xbox Moves
Week of the nerfs for most of my games here.
Alright, another week and I am getting ready to head out on my first trip in well over a year after being half-vaccinated and extremely careful. I’ll be posting a bit less, but still want to make sure to feed you enough content to tide you over.
What I’m Playing: Mainly Outriders, two classes 100% campaign done, working on Devastator and Pyro still. Got to the Lighthouse in Destiny last weekend for the first time with uh, a lot of help.
What I’m Watching: Absolutely great episodes of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Invincible and The Walking Dead this week. Really impressed all around!

Okay, onto the recap. Going to lead off with Outriders again this time:
Outriders’ New Patch Has Made The Inventory Wipe Bug Worse - While I like Outriders a lot, this bug is hitting more and more players and the recent patch didn’t fix it. Restoration is coming, but people are worried.
‘Outriders’ Patch Notes: Free Legendary, Technomancer And Trickster Nerfs - This was the game’s first major patch and they decided to nerf a bunch of popular builds after barely a week.
‘Outriders’ Review (Xbox Series X): A Legendary Drop - This is my full, scored review of the game, and technical drama aside, you can guess that I really like it.
So What Can ‘Destiny 2’ Learn From ‘Outriders’? - Jokes on you, I snuck another Outriders one in here. And yes, even if they’re not live service competitors technically, Destiny could grab a few things from here.
The Two Biggest Voids In Destiny 2’s Announced Future Content Plans - Despite everything we know about what’s coming to Destiny, some things continue to be ignored.
‘Destiny 2’ Teases The Return Of A Unique Weapon Next Season - One very weird patch note implies something cool and Fusion-related is coming back next season, but it could be one of a few things.
As Diablo 2’s Technical Alpha Arrives, Memories Of Addiction Resurface - A personal piece I wrote about my own history with Diablo 2 and 3 in the face of the return of the game with the Resurrected alpha.
Sony, Don’t Remake ‘The Last Of Us’ For PS5 - A new report says Sony is working on what would effectively be the second remake/remaster of this game. Seems like a waste to me.
Xbox Game Pass Stuns With ‘MLB: The Show 2021’ Announcement - One of the wildest plays I’ve seen Xbox make lately and that’s saying something, getting a Sony made game on Game Pass day one.
‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Patch 1.2 Mostly Helped PS4 Pro, But Other Consoles Lag Behind - The new patch has been tested, and it mostly helped the console that was running it best already. And Sony still hasn’t let it back on the PS Store.
Talking through the coming nerfs to popular PvP weapons and perks in Destiny:
Devastators are being discriminated against in Outriders already:
My advice on how much of a chance you should give Outriders before deciding it’s not for you:
Was on DCP with GernaderJake this week, which was one of my favorite shows so far:
Destin and I talk about why Xbox is getting so much love as of late:
What’s that? You want an Evie photo? No Evie but here is a wild mongoose:
(the missing patch is from allergy testing! don’t worry!)
