Destiny 2: Forsaken

There’s no denying that Destiny 2’s post-launch support hasn’t been the best. Lacklustre expansions, casualisation, and trying to keep the game in a beginner friendly state led it down a path longtime fans weren’t comfortable with, myself included. Destiny 2 was in dire need of […]
