This game is great; if you haven't played it. Pricetag seems high but if you consider time over dollars you'll get your money worth.

Just wish they'd gone for improved graphics.

This is the best thing to come out of the great Destiny 2: Forsaken Edge Transit debacle

1 Comment

If you spent any time playing Destiny 2: Forsaken following the conclusion of the main campaign, you’ll no doubt be aware of the great Edge Transit debacle.

Edge Transit is a new legendary grenade launcher in Destiny 2: Forsaken. Unlike most of the expansion’s new items, this particular weapon has been dropping from almost every activity at a rate that far exceeds that of any other weapon or gear piece.

If you have been making your way through Forsaken’s various Power grinds, you will have received over a dozen of these from your Powerful and Legendary Engrams, and as activity rewards. So many players got so many of them, in fact, that it became a meme.

Contributing to the proliferation of this meme is YouTube user Dragyn, who created this fantastic tribute to Edge Transit. The video is brilliantly edited, and generally well put together. They even went through the trouble of photoshopping all menus and titles in the game to read ‘Edge Transit’.

Dragyn’s video was featured in Bungie’s weekly blog post, and it’s well worth watching.

And, if you’re curious, Bungie did eventually fix the bug that caused Edge Transit to be this common of a drop in update 2.0.4, which released earlier this week.

They need to keep this game at least a year away from Last of Us 2.

Previews World Interview

DIE
1 Comment

The Wicked + the Divine was always about a monument to everything I’ve ever loved, which we proceeded to set fire to. It was always meant to end up with me kneeling in the ashes, looking around and whispering “What Next?” I knew I never wanted to do anything like WicDiv ever again.

I wanted to write something starring adults, ideally people at least as old as I am. I wanted to write something with more emotions nearer the surface. I wanted to write something sadder, believe it or not. I wanted to write something that was clearly by me, and a continuation of my obsessions, but touching on stuff I’ve never written before.

Die was my answer.

“Goth Jumanji” is my jokey description of the book, which entirely doesn’t give you the tone. Your references aren’t innaccurate. As you note, the Return To Narnia aspect of the book is right there. It’s forty-year olds dealing with the fantasy world they thought they escaped back as teenagers. It’s that midlife crisis “have I wasted my life?” kinda vibe, comparing your teenage fantasies with where they’ve ended up.

It’s a book with drama at the core, with six defined characters with their own compelling issues. Its mood leans dark fantasy to horror – I suspect my idea of dark fantasy reads as horror to most people. It’s heavily autobiographical, drawing on my own love of role-playing games and a whole mass of insecurities. It doesn’t skimp on the genre thrills, but it’s not what the book is about, and not why you’ll be coming back every month.

It’s also a lot. It’s very much the sort of book I can only do at Image, which tries to do everything. As well as this personal story around the cast, the whole thing basically is a Planetary-but-for-Fantasy-and-RPG deconstruction of the various elements that gave birth to the modern conception of games and fantasy. And as well as that, it’s also an entirely coherent, and hopefully enchanting fantasy world summoned by Stephanie. It’s a lot.

It doesn’t aim low.

I suspect that’s the most accurate answer in terms of “What’s Die About?”.

I just went ahead and set up a pre-order for this series at Image Direct.

Of note: When you go to imagecomics.com and set up an account; this isn't the same account that you'll end up using to get a print sub. For that you go to subscriptions.imagecomics.com and set an account up there. I guess they have two different systems, one for digital, one for print; which is super-dumb but whatever I really just want to read this comic already.
