In this episode, Jorge, Jarret, and John explore the past month and explosion of news that was presented by Bungie on the path to The Taken King. We first explore the disappearance of Tess Everis, the Nepal shader and emblem, discuss Crucible once again, and then jump straight into the changing tower, the new strike, and the Court of Oryx public event system. Peppered throughout are questions about the upcoming weapon balancing 2.0 (which Jarret has his doubts on), our take on certain events happening within Destiny (such as dailies, weeklies, and nightfalls now being behind a paywall known as The Taken King due to having to complete the raid for them), and our general excitement level for all of the different changes including the big one to a lot of people: the beloved Thorn.

John Waldraff

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.
