Episode #53: Farewell, Drifter! Yea, Opulence!

Two weeks ago, This Week at Bungie (or TWAB, if you didn’t know but you should be reading it) had the Destiny community in an uproar. Today, the community is gearing up for the Season of Opulence, and our fireteam is ready to talk about it!

In this episode, the Fireteam gathers round respective mics and looks back on the Season of the Drifter. While Gambit-centric (as the name leads on), there were some memorable moments to reflect over. The crew then look ahead to what drops today: The Season of Opulence.

Change is coming, and the Guardians are ready for it. How about you? We would love to get your thoughts on the road ahead, so drop us a line at 703.791.1701 or podcast (at) happyhourfromthetower (dot) com.
