Ep 136 - Exo

136_-_Exo.jpg

This week, the team jumps into the conversation on the enigmatic Exos and the new information that the Destiny community received as part of the Warmind DLC (and a hefty conversation at the end about the potential future of one of the community's favorite Exo in the upcoming Forsaken DLC). Get ready for a dive into some more psychological analysis of the science fiction genre, a look at some potential reasons why Destiny has Exos, and a good amount of home-grown spinfoil!

This week, get ready for a long chat with Beard and Green (Blue and Justin are there, trust us) about the information contained within the new Ares One information that was provided to the community in the Warmind DLC. And yes, that includes the big debate on the order of the entries, but also the underlying potential problems (if any) there are with the information.

Ep 134 - The Fry Files

134_-_Fry_Files.jpg

This week we answer the question of "would you like to know more" with a resounding YES - diving into the bread crumbs of information that are able to be gleaned from some of the new collectible scans in the Warmind DLC for Destiny 2. From a lengthy (per listener request) discussion on the nature of the Trolley Problem and how it relates to the figure of Rasputin, to chatting about the new revelations about Exos, the team dives into the information given to us by the files we fondly refer to as The Fry Files.

Ep 133 - Worm Gods

133_-_Worm_Gods.jpg

This week takes the team not just under the surface of the newly unlocked Mars, but also into the pages of Grimoire and information from Destiny 1 - because in order to understand the weight of the new information about the Worm Gods, you have to go back to the start and learn about their history. We'll take a look at things such as the pact with the Hive, the possible implications that Nokris and Xol's presence on Mars alongside Rasputin has within the story, and even thoughts on if Calus himself had any interactions - along with some jokes at the expense of the currently running Faction Rally (of course).

Extra Lore 27 - HALO (ft. pensHALO)

EL_27_-_Halo.jpg

This installment of the Extra Lore series brings the team together to discuss one of the arguably most division characters within the HALO series, Dr. Catherine Halsey. Taking her journal (available to players who purchased either the Limited or Legendary version of Halo: Reach as the primary source of information, pens leads the discussion through the controversial topics of Halsey's historical development into the character that we see in HALO today.
