Thinking back to my very first time playing an MMORPGit was one of the most thrilling moments in gaming. If you’re like me in your early 30’s, it has gotten more and more difficult to form long-lasting friendships unless you are an employee or student. Now I’m not saying this is the perfect science for making friends but it stands to reason it is usually easier to make friends where there are more people. Right?

My adventure into online gaming began back in 2014 when I first discovered A…

Can you handle the onslaught from Season of the Chosen?

Bungie released their latest chapter in the narrative and let me tell you it’s not for the faint of heart. That being said it is a whole lot of fun. Once you load into the battlegrounds you are thrown straight into the mix of things.

The Cabal will take everything by force

Just before the start of latest season, I had a Twitter conversation with some good friends. In this conversation, each person shared thoughts on upcoming gameplay and narrative features they want to see in Season Of The ChosenWe broke down elements each person felt excited about and thought could bring change to the current player experience.

But something had been on my mind. As I engaged in conversation I thought about the planets and whether Earth was the only planet we could expect to see an invasion from the Cabal. …

Nessus, the forgotten centaur

Yesterday evening I was tuned into a live stream run by my friend Kaz ( and a conversation came up about the mysterious centaur planet Nessus and why nothing “new” has happened on the planet so far.

In fact, it’s safe to say we have had no new lore or campaign-driven narrative taking place on the planet whatsoever. While Nessus continues to have open-world events, strikes, lost sectors, and regional loot chests, it is yet to be seen how Exodus and Nessus will play a part in the future of .

Rasputin is gone! At least up until this point this is assumed. After facing the Dark Pyramids, Rasputin hasn’t been able to do his usual activities; there are no Warsats (War Satellites) or access to Seraph Bunkers, no sign that he will return to us.

But ever since losing Rasputin my mind has been plagued by questions, questions about whether there are more Warminds? Last year I made a YouTube video titled ‘The lore reveals the last moments before the collapse (a cataclysm in human history that brought the species to extinction). In Exodus lore, two names come…

Darkness is on our doorstep! This rumbling tundra of black has returned having had a taste of humanities demise during the first collapse. Whatever the reason may be it wants more but why?


Towards the end of (Pyramids entered into our solar system there was no warning or sign of their presence, until Eris Morn awoke a dormant Pyramid on the Moon.

I should say it didn’t take long for them to arrive but due to COVID-19 games development almost came to a halt. For several weeks we watched as the Pyramids moved closer into…

Crow, open up the window, let the light in

Forgiveness is something I have struggled with in recent years. Whether it was overcoming a difficult relationship or learning to let go of many wrongs I felt had been committed against me, it has taken me a long time to realize that it’s hard work.

Though time passes, we bear the scars from such challenges. On September 4th 2018 we all discovered this after purchasing our copies of . This campaign unleashed a chaotic narrative full of emotional tear-jerking roller coasters, deep thought, and hours of riveting gameplay.

We made it! Today is the day, we have finally arrived on the shores of Season 13 and from this moment there is only mere hours until we take our next step into a new Destiny.

Last Thursdays we received a very meaty of the different gameplay systems that will be changing and evolving over the course of 2021. Whilst some of the changes further angered some aspects of the community I noticed we received no glimpse of what to expect from the lore of Destiny.

Some lasting for more than 2-3 months at any given time. Am I making any sense at all?

Destiny 2 launched on September 6th 2017. In this campaign, we lost our light because of an attack on the “Last City” due to the “Cabal” (a warmongering rhino-like race) lead by Emperor Dominus Ghaul.
