Nite Owl of the Week

Nite Owl

I came so close to being Nite Owl this week. SO CLOSE. Unfortunately, the honour was snapped up by Darryn, who just doesn’t seem to be content with being Batman basically ALL of the time.

Header of the Week

Xurve

Darryn has brought back his ‘Where is Xur’ series thanks to Destiny: Rise of Iron, and with it, one of the best headers I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. Amazing!

Most Comments
