    Bungie Changes Nightfall Strike Due To Bug

    October 18, 2017 // 0 Comments

    Yesterday’s weekly reset in Destiny brought Exodus Crash back as the Nightfall, and just like the first time it was the Nightfall there was a bug in the Prestige version were certain mission objectives would not spawn. As a result, Bungie today has changed the Nightfall to The Pyramidion with the modifiers Torrent and Time Warp: Zero Hour. To mitigate issues encountered by players in the Exodus Crash Nightfall strike, this week's Nightfall has been changed to Pyramidion. — [...]

  • Visceral Games
    Sad day in gaming today as EA has announced that it is shutting down developer Visceral Games. Visceral was of course responsible for the Dead Space franchise, but also the fun hack and slash Dante’s Inferno. The former EA Redwood Shores studio, which was active from 1998 until its closure here in 2017, last shipped Battlefield: Hardline in 2015. The studio had been working on a single player, story driven Star Wars game that was being headed by Uncharted 2’s director Amy Hennig. [...]

  • Patriot's Playing
    It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these for the site, and so now seems like a good time to bring back this weekly blog series. Over the past week, and continuing on to this week, I’ve been playing a lot of Warframe. If you asked me a month and a half ago what I’d be playing at this time in October, I would’ve probably said “exclusively Destiny 2.” Destiny 2 is a very good game, and a very fun one. I’ve spent over 100 hours in it, and have [...]

    Destiny 2 Weekly Reset 10/17/17: Exodus Crash

    October 17, 2017 // 0 Comments

    It’s Tuesday, and that can only mean the weekly reset in Destiny 2 has rolled around. There are milestones to be completed, clan XP to earn, and raid loot to acquire (probably via tokens). Of course tomorrow is a big day in Destiny 2 as well. The Prestige version of the Leviathan Raid goes live tomorrow at 12pm CT. Of course there will be no power level increase with the Prestige release, but it is an additional challenge to conquer and will have its own armor set and likely some [...]
  • WWE RAW 10/16/17
    Tonight, WWE brings RAW to the Moda Center in Portland, OR for the final stop before Sunday’s big TLC event. Last week, RAW Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins officially reunited with Roman Reigns to reform The Shield. The trio took out their TLC opponents Miz, Cesaro, and Sheamus, and then later in the night took out Braun Strowman. As a result, the six-man TLC match has been turned into a four versus three handicap match with Braun Strowman joining Team Miz. This week, [...]

    Destiny 2 Review

    October 16, 2017 // 1 Comment

    Destiny 2 has been out for over a month, and I feel like it’s the time for me to finally get this full review out even if it is “late” (although the PC version doesn’t release for another week). I came into Destiny 2 as a hardcore, dedicated Destiny player with over 2,500 hours logged in the first game. It’s because of my love of the game, or franchise, that this review will be the longest one we have ever published and will tackle the game from different [...]
