Latest Destiny 2: Season Of The Splicer Cutscene Is Heartbreaking And Beautifully Told

We previously talked about how Destiny 2: Season of the Chosen was a huge pivot for the team at Bungie with the narrative surrounding the space shooter. A true turning point for the ongoing story and a positive step into the future of what Destiny 2 will have to offer fans. With Season of the Splicer in full swing, the next step of storytelling has begun, this time giving us a closer look at the Fallen beyond just being enemies and the harrowing reminder that Savathun continues to grow in influence. That being said, the most recent cutscene for season 14 is truly art and showcases that Bungie is not letting that momentum from the previous season wane in the slightest. 

Because this article is talking about the most recent story scene, there are obvious spoilers. Please proceed with caution. 

The latest update for the MMO brought with it a promise to implement feedback from the community about some of the more overt epileptic triggers in-game and the highly requested Stasis nerf. It also gave us the next step of the evolving story, a step that is honestly stunning and has me excited to see how this season will play out. 

An 'Among Us' Chicken Nuggie Sold For Almost $100,000, Because What Is Life?

An 'Among Us' Chicken Nuggie Sold For Almost $100,000, Because What Is Life?

Food that is shaped like certain objects has always been a fascination in online markets. Toast with the face of Jesus on it, a Dorito that looks like the pope if you squint one eye and completely shut the other. It's a phenomenon, really. Very important stuff, truly. Adding to that pile of food that sold for exorbitant amounts of money is a chicken nuggie (nugget, I'm an adult) that looks like it came straight out of Among Us. This little fella sold for almost $100,000. I mean, we like a sus little astronaut jelly bean as much as the next person, but this is just getting ridiculous.

The seller that made bank off of processed chicken parts goes by Polizna, and they cashed in smartly when putting up a McDonald's nugget on eBay after noting its suspicious-looking design. Shaped like the little beans we know best from the whodunnit game, nearly 200 bidders competed to win this coveted prize of beauty and fame. However, only one could win, and that winner won a grand prize of being down 100,000 bucks. 

Bungie Shares Plans To Make Destiny 2 More Epileptic-Friendly

Bungie Shares Plans To Make Destiny 2 More Epileptic-Friendly

The gaming space has made major strides in recent years when it comes to accessibility, but there is still more work to be done. This work can be done without negatively impacting the gaming experience, but knowing how to do so is the first step. As someone that experiences seizures following an injury I received back when I was active duty, my entire worldview shifted and suddenly I saw entertainment in a different light. Games, movies, TV? All suddenly had this level of danger I was previously unaware of. You don't even need to have epilepsy to experience a seizure if the trigger is aggressive enough. That's why I was so pleased, so grateful when I saw the latest developer update from Bungie about a game I play religiously: Destiny 2. Following a few epileptic PSAs highlighting what are triggers so that Guardians can avoid them while still playing, the team at Bungie added in a new warning screen at sign-in while also detailing more changes going on behind the scenes to make this space adventure a little safer for all. 

In the most recent blog post from Bungie, the studio acknowledged recent reports about Destiny 2 and possible epileptic triggers. In addition to the in-game notice added this week, Bungie also added more details to its EULA (End User License Agreement) and a plan of action for future updates:

More Borderlands Movie Cast First Looks Include Claptrap, Tiny Tina, And More

Earlier this week, actress Jamie Lee Curtis shared our first look at Cate Blanchett as Lilith in the upcoming Borderlands movie from Eli Roth. While just a vague outline, the reveal does seem to hint that a full trailer could be coming soon with E3 just around the corner. While we ponder that notion, we do have a few more cast looks, including seeing Kevin Hart as ... um, as Roland. 

In case you missed it, you can see Blanchett as Lilith in the tweet below. We've also got Roland, Tiny Tina, Claptrap, Tannis, and Krieg images. Again, vague outlines, but could very well be teasing a full reveal soon, especially with Netflix's "Geeked" showcase running during E3

Square Enix's E3 2021 Showcase Will Highlight Babylon's Fall, Reveal New Eidos Montreal Title

Square Enix's E3 2021 Showcase Will Highlight Babylon's Fall, Reveal New Eidos Montreal Title

Now that we know what the entire E3 schedule looks like, Square Enix has gone ahead and pulled the curtain back on its E3 2021 digital keynote, detailing some of the big announcements it has in store. The 40-minute presentation airs June 13 at 12:15 p.m. Pacific on Square’s YouTube and Twitch channels and will feature, among other things, the debut of a brand-new game and an update on a long-lost title. 

First off, the stream will provide a new look at the long-awaited but seldom seen Babylon’s Fall. For those who don’t remember, this is the upcoming action game by Platinum Games that was first announced in June 2018. We don't know much about it other than that it's a stylish combat game that blends medieval and sci-fi aesthetics, and we haven’t heard a peep about it since its last gameplay showing in December 2019. 

The stream will also feature the premiere of a new title from Eidos Montreal. There’s no hint of what the studio has up its sleeve, but the last big title to come from the studio was 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Eidos also lent a hand in developing Marvel’s Avengers.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition offers newcomers and veteran fans alike a chance to enjoy the beloved BioWare trilogy on this generation of consoles with all of the previously released story DLC. With so many new players boarding the Normandy for the first time, longtime fans are getting to experience that excitement once more vicariously through a new wave of fans.

Days Gone Developer Reveals It Has A New IP In The Works

Bend Studio, the team behind Days Gone and Syphon Filter, has announced it's working on a new IP. The studio shared the news on Twitter yesterday with an open letter to fans. The reveal doesn't share any details regarding what sort of game it is, when it's expected to release, or much else beyond "we're working on something." The news comes after a recent report that the studio isn't moving forward on production of a Days Gone 2 (much to the chagrin of fans). 

Despite the lack of substantial details, it's always exciting to see a studio delve into something new, especially if you're a fan of its previous works. You can take a look at the announcement in the embedded tweet below.

Singularity 6’s Palia Is A Relaxing MMO

Singularity 6’s Palia Is A Relaxing MMO

We’ve seen countless MMORPGs all vying to be the one that excels in terms of giant raids, precision combat, and engaging progression. Singularity 6’s first game, Palia, taps into a different kind of loop. Instead of being focused on character progression by means of weapons, armor, and dragonslaying, Palia aims to get players invested in the charms of farming, relationship building, and decorative finesse. If Palia sounds like Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing meets MMO to you, you’re not far from the mark. Pre-alpha access is scheduled to land this summer, and you can sign up here. Check out the announcement trailer!

In Palia, you play as a human in a fledgling world ready for you to shape. And how can you shape it? It starts with your living space, naturally. Every player has their own plot to advance and customize, with over a thousand decoration items available at launch. Naturally, you can invite your friends over to hang out and take in the scenery. Whereas traditional MMORPGs have guilds or clans to join, Palia has neighborhoods. In Neighborhoods, you can group up with other players to take on bigger tasks and objectives and reap the rewards.
