Ep 101 - First Reactions

Episode 101 brings Blue and Green together to chat with each other about their first reactions to the new worlds offered by Destiny 2 - and to discuss what's already on their wish list for the game. Blue brings up the idea of viewing Destiny 1 as an "episode zero" in the series - including his concerns with that approach as well. Altogether, the reactions are immensely positive - and we're eager to see what the communities thoughts are in the coming weeks!

Ep 100 - Return of Yes

Episode 100 brings Blue, Green, Justin, AND MEL back together to chat about the past 100 episodes and the hopes for the next 100 that the team has - and to announce the winner of the digital copy of Destiny 2! We sprinkled in a few tidbits of joy and hilarity from the past couple of years for everyone to enjoy as well - call it a small sample of the shenanigans that often occur during the game streams that the team has throughout the week when we're not working on the podcast or at work itself. A huge thanks to you all again - and we can't wait to explore the future with everyone!

Extra Lore 18 - Final Fantasy (ft. Damoel & BeardGrizzly)

Our 18th installment of the Extra Lore series brings Blue, Green, and returning guest co-hosts Damoel and BeardGrizzly together to chat about the amazingly complex stories involved in the universe of Final Fantasy. But don't worry - our guests have the information covered and are able to present it in a truly enjoyable fashion (albeit with a bit of slight disagreement on some of the finer points - which shouldn't be a surprise). Be sure to also stick around for the whole episode - as there are some good tangents (especially near the end where we dive into the Tactics series a little bit).

Ep 99 - Final Destiny Memories

Episode 99 brings together Blue, Green, & Justin to...well, give the floor to the community. This entire episode was a collection of Dispatches from YOU - and we absolutely loved getting to relive all the great memories from these past years as we read and listened to your best memories. We cannot wait for what the future holds - and while we are excited for what lies before us, we enjoyed this opportunity to look back and take in all that has happened so far.

Per audacia ad astra, Guardians.

Behind the Scenes: Storytelling w Jon Goff

Our sixth installment of the Behind the Scenes series gave the team a chance to sit down with Jon Goff to chat about the process of creating one of the common interests for our community in particular - the stories we experience via video games. As one of the writers responsible for the creation of the vast and richly detailed world we see in Destiny, Jon brought a wealth of information to the conversation - from discussion on the inspiration of the infamous Story of Yor to a brief explanation of some of the different mediums and their process of character creation. It should also be noted that there are a few trivia points in this episode concerning the stories that he's written (as well as a great discussion about the subtle differences in motivating players to do what they need to do in a game.

Ep 98 - Lore Update (New Monarchy)

Episode 98 brings Blue, Green, and special guest co-host Sir Wallen together to chat about those who seek to abolish the Consensus in favor of a new monarch - and who really like the color red. That's right - New Monarchy is on the chopping block this week...and, as we promised Green, we make sure to keep the salt out of the conversation (mostly). The team enjoys the opportunity to also chat about what they hope to see from the Factions as a whole in Destiny 2 - so be sure to stick around for that chat at the end as well!

Ep 97 - Lore Dive (Striker)

Episode 97 brings Blue, Green, Justin, and special guest co-host BeardGrizzly together to talk (or at least try to talk) about the infamous Striker Titans. Fair warning - Beard and Blue feed off each other when it comes to jumping into tangents (one of which is Team Four Star, apparently), so be ready for some hilarious connections and jokes galore. The team starts off with the general concept of what makes the Striker titan different (especially from the other Arc subclasses) before moving onto discussion which figures in the current game we're pretty sure are members of this subclass. Finally, we tackle the difficult question of the explanation of the upcoming changes in the mechanics of the Striker as seen in Destiny 2.

Ep 96 - Lore Dive (Stormcaller)

Episode 96 brings Blue and Justin back together to discuss the electrifying figures of the Stormcaller Warlocks. Blue also takes a few minutes at the start of the show to discuss some developments that had been posted about over on the website for those who might not be in the Discord chat (jump in if you're not!) - so please be sure to weigh in on that as well! As always, the pair bring a sense of humor to the topic, and we truly hope you enjoy the conversation about those wielders of space magic who have a strong tendency to make it rain.

Ep 95 - Lore Update (Dead Orbit)

Episode 95 brings Blue, Green, and Justin back together to discuss those in the City who look beyond. Beyond the walls, beyond the earth, beyond even the Traveler and the supposed salvation that it offers humanity. They see another future among the light of other stars. They see the Traveler and Earth itself as nothing more than celestial bodies caught in a dead orbit - a name which, appropriately they have taken for their own.

And yes, Justin and Green have decided to go with the themed names - so bear with Blue while he tries to keep up with the shenanigans that are happening in the Discord server.

Extra Lore 17 - Horizon Zero Dawn

Our 17th installment of the Extra Lore series brings Blue, Green, Justin, and special guest co-host InfestedPotatoe together to take an introductory look into the rich world of Horizon Zero Dawn. While most of this episode is concerned with a general summary of the title (small spoiler warnings), there is also a discussion on the details of the different types of mechanical figures, the various purposes of the subroutines experienced in the game, as well as a very brief look at the history of the story-world that led to the events that the players experience in game.
