The anticipation is building for the new Warmind expansion coming this May 8 from Bungie, so what do we at the Tower do to pass the time? Well, we get together and play some Destiny 2, of course…
…and yeah, we play other games as well.
Shocked, are you? You shouldn’t be. We love Destiny, as you know; but we play other games as well. Today on Happy Hour from the Tower, Tee, Nick and Brandon kick back and talk about other games they play outside the confines of the Cosmodrome. Doesn’t mean we think Destiny is no longer worthwhile. Variety, after all, is the spice of life.
What about you? What games do you play between Ion Banners? Do you play with your Fireteam, or with completely different people? Let’s hear your thoughts or feedback at 703.791.1701 or podcast (at) happyhourfromthetower (dot) com. We’d love to hear from you!
