You’re not going bald, you just have invisible hair. [Ed: Is this a personal attack?]

Best story

Destiny has been in a bit of a rut when it comes to players lately, mostly through the rather convoluted progress system that makes for a daunting challenge to anyone looking to invest in the game. Want to join your friends for a raid? Well then, you’re going to need to do many many activities before you can even think of tackling Riven.

That’s all changing soon, as the year ahead doesn’t just have a new expansion lined up for Destiny 2 players, but a new path that’ll allow you to hop in and experience the magic of Bungie’s universe quicker than ever before. The fact that a large chunk of this content is going to be free to play? Well that’s just even better for the future of this franchise, as it charts a new path forward.

Worst story

Looking forward to playing The Elder Scrolls 6 in the near future? Well buddy, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for ya! With the lasagna-loving Starfield now Bethesda’s top priority, it’s going to be a long-ass wait before you can set foot back in Tamriel for a new adventure. Still, good things come to those who wait, right? Just think how much fun it’ll be to play The Elder Scrolls 6 during the middle of a global cataclysm caused by climate change. YAY!

WTF story

Ever wanted to smell like a mix of Cheetos and Mountain Dew? Well good news pals, because Xbox-branded deodorant is coming your way! Smell like team green, and tell your date that something exclusive is on the horizon…eventually. If you know what I mean wink wink.

Header image of the week


Not a header image per se, but a cheeky little joke that I left behind for anyone who felt like being observant regarding the rise of the Metaverse in DC Comics continuity. Fun fact: The original idea was to have my face flanked by two smaller Bat-faces. Giggle.

Comment of the week

Usually Hammer is the one rounding up comments for this article, but this week the fella himself managed to fire off a gem of a reply over on the Xbox body wash post:

I bet it’s backside compatible.

  1. Has nobody told the South African Black Twitter and BLF about the new Xbox Lynx yet?

    I do NOT like the new VO for Honest Game trailers. It sounds like a cheap knock-off.

      Apparently it is not permanent change, epic voice guy will still do a lot of the trailers with other people filling in

    Damn nepotism with comments of the week. In my humble opinion I think his Bran comment was better.
