RazzyMagoo – Grenades sucked. Abilities sucked. What can Bungo do to make them usable; still balanced and not spammable.

Richard Jenkins – Do you believe that some or all weapon drops will be locked into a specific class?

Do you believe we can jump straight into the Crucible in D on launch or will it be like Destiny 1?

Hosts

Born in the 80's, given a NES and Gameboy at a young age, Jorge grew up in gaming and experienced gaming in many cultures due to moving around the world. Now in New Jersey, an older Jorge continues his journey in gaming. Adobo included.

Been gaming since birth and he's not gonna stop now. Call of Duty was the first shooter that pulled him in and his love for shooters has developed into a love of Destiny. He's now a Guardian, proud to protect the traveler and slay my foes in Crucible.

A former professional cyclist, gaming has always been Jordan's preferred method of stress-relief. Traditionally an action RPG'er, he has recently been ensnared in the modern MMO/RPG/FPS genre, and talks about it as a host of In Orbit.

I'm not going to lie, film is what I love. I can talk about it all day. I also appreciate art, and that's where I see games. I'm no authority on the history of gaming, but I certainly have appreciated a good story and fantastic gameplay. I love how a good game brings friends together. I represent the casual player, and during my podcasts don't be surprised when games become a movie discussion.
