First off, most people will probably associate Halo with Bungie. But this is about which game people think about when they hear Bungie. Halo, 2, 3, ODST and Reach. Stretching from 2001 to 2010. Destiny, 2 and numerous expansion. Stretching from 2014 to Present While originally creating this, I thought they were a little closer in terms of years. But Bungie appears to be trekking ahead with Destiny and will catch up no doubt.

Join me in looking after your family, friend, neighbors and all. Let's hunker down and wear these masks, incorporate them into our daily routines. Let's make history and use this little inconvenient device to prove our nation's commitment to doing the right thing. Be an American, a patriot, a decent human being and wear the mask." Dial it up or down a little bit as needed. Instead we got: " fuck masks, they are anti American, don't work and you're sacrificing your liberty and betraying your patriotism if you're a Beta bitch and wear one.

Thread What do you think is the best Watch Dogs game?
I like the characters of the first 2, but the tone change from title to title was wild. First felt dark and gritty, leaning towards lethal. Second felt zany and more leaning toward non lethal. The third one so far is okay. But unless you freshly get a good recruit that you like, it's hard to connect. The mains in 1 & 2 were real and developed. In Legion they are generated, so your experience may vary. Only the support and antagonist are written.

Sure. As long as it's fun. Fun is depending on the match making quality and performance. If it's newbies vs pro, than no. If the hit registration is poor, than no. If the competition is close, and the response is good.. Yes. Can't win them all.

I bought Valhalla at launch, then Watch Dogs a few days ago when it was $30 at Bestbuy. I was hoping Valhalla would have a sale. But it looks like they are just peddling Watch Dogs at this point. I bought the Season Pass for Watch Dogs 1 back in the day, and it was mediocre. I'm wondering if I should have waited longer for Legion.
