Episode #60: Catching up with the Fireteam on the Guardian Games, the State of Content, and Cheating in Trials

Tee is taking the hit on this one. He has been working hard on a lot of various projects as you’ll hear in the show intro, but yes, the Fireteam is back, and we are here to talk about…


Welcome back from what was an unintentional break. We did try out a show very no frills, very barebones, and it went well, but then demands reached a peak with Tee…and the episode was lost.


So the Fireteam assembled on Sunday, and we did this bare-bones approach, and this time, Tee set aside the time for edit and review. He also made sure the show got exported to the Fireteam’s YouTube channel…

On account of Tee’s current schedule, Happy Hour from the Tower is going with a simplified approach to show notes. We’re going to showcase the raw shows along with any YouTube features and URLs referenced throughout the show, but for now, some things need to get off Tee’s editorial desk.

So without any more set up, here’s a quick look at Episode #60…

Episode #060: Catching up with the Fireteam on the Guardian Games, the State of Content, and Cheating in Trials

This was what I dreamt about…
..but here’s the reality!
  • How the Guardian games feel a little out of place because the ALMIGHTY IS ON A COLLISION COURSE WITH EARTH!
  • A discussion on the demand for content — is is beginning to hurt the progress of Destiny’s storyline, and the gaming industry on a whole?
  • Speculation on how Guardian Games will end, and what Bungie is planning. Are we going to be seeing massive change in the world again on Forsaken level?
The Dangers of the Grind
  • Wait — we were talking about Guardian Games, and now we are talking about a sustainable market? What?!
  • Where is that happy medium?
