Finally, some of the big ‘Destiny 2’ questions are answered


There’s much we don’t know about Destiny 2. The raid is a (not at all surprising) no-show in previews, the system governing loot drops is a giant question mark, and the loot itself carries some inscrutable elements — such as mod slots — that will only be answered with the final game.

That said, this video clarifies how a huge chunk of the game works: PatrolsDestiny 2 brings back the original game’s open exploration spaces, but levels up the way those spaces work. 

Cooperative “Public Events” have increased in both number and complexity, which promises to make these public co-op spaces feel even more lively. Those events are also joined by new Lost Sectors and Adventures that function sort of like mini-missions — you can stumble into them just by wandering around and poking your gun into every dark corner, and you get loot drops and story development as a reward.

Netflix picks up new animated series from Matt Groening


Netflix is bringing another epic Matt Groening series to our lives.

The streaming company announced Tuesday it would be picking up twenty episodes of Disenchantment, a new adult animated comedy fantasy series from Matt Groening.

You likely know Groening as the brilliant mind who brought the world some of its most beloved animated series like The Simpsons and Futurama, so seeing what he stories he tells in Disenchantment’s “crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland” should be pretty entertaining.

According to a press release, the series will follow the misadventures of a “hard-drinking young princess” named Bean, her “feisty elf companion” creatively named Elfo, and her very own “personal demon” named Luci.  Read more…

Sansa is a rising power player on ‘Game of Thrones’. Here’s why that matters.


Game of Thrones has so many subplots going on, it can be hard to track of the constant question it poses. Namely: which character is most likely to end up on the Iron Throne — actually on it, not the power behind it — at the end of the story?

That’s the purpose of our ongoing power rankings, which we’re bringing you after every Season 7 episode. And the many events and foreshadowings of Episode 2, “Stormborn,” has produced quite a significant shift from the previous week’s rankings.

For one thing, you’ll notice Arya is no longer on the list. Her welcome decision to go to Winterfell wipes out the slim chance that she would end up on the Iron Throne by killing Cersei and wearing her skin, Walder Frey-style.  Read more…

Top pick: Marvel’s The Defenders Season 1

New York’s local heroes — Manhattan, to be specific (sorry, Spider-Man) — take on Alexandra (Sigourney Weaver), who claims the two sides are at war for New York. There are ripples from villains of Daredevil and Iron Fist, but what you need to know is that this is a high-risk alliance banking on the off-chance four reluctant misfits will band together.
