  • An Indian Desi on the Storytree

    An Indian Desi on the Storytree

    The flamboyant dilettante called me by name. I was shocked. My eyes danced over what was visible of his face, most of which was hidden behind the masks that we all wear. I didn’t recognize him. How did he know my name? A few moments later, I realized that I was still wearing my nametag. […]

  • How I Got My 2nd Dose of AZ

    It was about time for me to get my 2nd dose. We were told that we could register our appointments starting last week. My 1st dose was on 8/28, 2 weeks after the rest of my coworkers. For what reason, I don’t know. Probably because I’m younger.

  • Destiny 2: Iron Pain, the Saga Continues…

    I totally ripped that title off from a Sir Dimetrious video, but it’s more of the same this week. There are 4 pinnacle drops that are easy to get when playing solo, they can be painful to get, especially if you’re playing freelance, but still worthwhile, as the Peacebond, a new stasis sidearm, which is […]

  • Destiny 2: Season of the Lost S15

    Season of the Lost launched on time after a very interesting Witchqueen showcase. Most of what I saw in the showcase excited me. However, the release day was pushed back to 2.22.22, so it’s going to be a long wait. It took the usual crazy amount of time to log onto the game. Eventually I […]

  • Destiny 2: Master Difficulty Vault of Glass Raid

    On July 6, the Master difficulty of the VoG raid became available to all players. My light level was about 1346, and I went in with a team of mix-matched players of different abilities, the kind of group that I usually run with for VoG. Needless to say, we didn’t have a good time. We […]

  • Cyberbug 2077: The Most Disappointing Game of 2020 (Cyberpunk 2077)

    Like many fans of CD Project Red, I preordered Cyberpunk 2077 a while ago. It must have been August. I was getting hyped for the release. The PR machine made it sound like an impressive RPG, putting The Witcher to shame. Amidst delays over delays, the game finally launched on December 10th 2020, and was […]

  • Iron Pain: The Iron Banner Experience with no SBMM Destiny 2 S12

    Since S11, SBMM in Destiny 2 has been limited to comp and elimination in order to lower queue times. This made a lot of PvP mains happy because they get to stomp lower skilled players. But how much fun is it?

  • Destiny 2 Beyond Light: Deep Stone Crypt Raid S12

    While I wasn’t really ready to raid on day 1 of the release of the raid, 11/21, although I was close to 1230 light, I kept at it all week to make sure that I was near or on the hard cap before making any attempt. I had scheduled it for Saturday with a couple […]

  • Destiny 2: Beyond Light Impressions & Grind

    The new Destiny 2 expansion launched on November 10th. It introduced a “new” element called Stasis. It came after an extended season, s12 Arrivals, and after a long content drought. Did it live up to the hype and expectations? Read on to find out more.

  • Festival of the Lost 2020: We Made Your Least Fave Even More Grindy (Destiny 2 S11)

    With Beyond Light delayed until November, we got another year of the Haunted Infinite Forest, which is basically a cut and paste event from the last few years. Good or bad? Probably average. But what I didn’t expect was for this to become even more grindy, thanks to having to farm Cipher Decoders in order […]
