Welcome to a uhhh 24 hour late version of God Rolls because I definitely forgot yesterday was Sunday. But never fear! There’s still plenty to recap and go over as we gear up for a very busy fall, despite a myriad of delays.
What I’m Playing: Another fun weekend of Destiny Trials, where this time it took a team of Swedes to carry me flawless. Solo queue went…less good. Also I took a break from live service and played a ton of Deathloop, which I enjoyed.
What I’m Watching: Emmy-winner Ted Lasso, though I don’t like this season as much as most people. I did all of the new season of Sex Education and the extremely wild Squid Game on Netflix. I also did Malignant on HBO Max.
Now, onto the recap:

‘Marvel’s Avengers’ Has Sold Better Than You Think This Year - Would you have guessed that Avengers is a top-selling game of the year? No wonder 2022 content is coming.

Why this season is really making me hate Mara Sov:
Evie continues to be improving with her paws! She is almost back to her old self! What a floof.
