Welcome to the New Year, Guardians, and December has been quite an end to an amazing year with Bungie!
- First, on December 5th, Bungie released Destiny 2’s first DLC, The Curse of Osiris.
- Then, on December 19th, The Dawning began!
- Meanwhile Tee launched the Dog Days of Advent here on the podcast feed…
- …along with his original novella, Omens, as part of a Fiction Friday special!
So, yeah, December belonged to Destiny.
On today’s episode, the Guardians take a look at Curse of Osiris and The Dawning. What did they like? What did they think could have gone better? What are they looking forward to in 2018?
