Washington DC, 100MB down and up, no cap. Bundled with a TV package and the bill is inscrutable as to what the internet alone would be, but together it's about $100/month. No interest in Stadia, at least at the moment.

Eh, it's no different from Blizzard eventually rolling all the WoW expansions except for the most current into the "base" game. You pay a premium to experience the content early, prices fall over time. Not really anything new.

As someone that has bought every expansion on release I'm happy about this, hopefully it will bring in some fresh blood.

Jan and Ben did a frame-by-frame analysis of the announcement trailer in Ben's Lens to determine if there was any dabbing in the trailer, so honestly I would say GB's coverage has been more than comprehensive.

They removed timers for nightfalls pretty quickly and loot got much more interesting with Forsaken. I'm not saying your grievances with launch D2 aren't justified (I had plenty too) but Forsaken feels more like a continuation of Taken King/ROI with vanilla being an unfortunate detour.

Hmm, well I'm way into the co-op side of Destiny so it's hard for me to say for you specifically but Forsaken is one of the best releases in the franchise (including D1) so if you're enjoying D2 it's probably worth picking up. Both of the new planets are great; the Dreaming City is one of the best environments Bungie has created for Destiny and it will take a fair amount of time to get to it and see what it has to offer. I will say though that fairly early in the Forsaken campaign you'll need to be around 400 power to progress so you may be just a tad under-powered (the max in Warmind, which preceded Forsaken, was 385). Shouldn't take too long to get to the power necessary though.

Edit: Either way, I would pick up Forsaken rather than going back to D1 DLC. D2 has seasonal events every couple months, usually with unique activities, and a fairly vibrant community. D1 is never updated so it feels pretty static at this point. And I don't think the DLC for D1 is discounted very much so it will basically be the same price for Forsaken.

I think Randy might be on drugs. That the head of any company thinks this is an appropriate tweet is just baffling. Someone at Gearbox needs to stage an intervention.

Edit: Also, tweeting about dark impulses and how you feel something other than "negative reactions" to an abusive video mayyyyybe isn't the best idea when a lawsuit alleges you're engaged in CP. Just saying.

I don't see how comic books are winning if we're including Marvel movies. Those things are bigger than Jesus.

Well I for one certainly hope MS doesn't transition out of the hardware space because I shudder the day I need to use a Dualshock over an Xbox controller for my console gaming.
