Five Years Of Reporting From The Last City – Iron Banter: This Week In Destiny 2

Just about every week brings something new to Destiny 2, whether it’s story beats, new activities, or interesting new combinations of elements that let players devastate each other in the Crucible. Iron Banter is our weekly look at what’s going on in the world of Destiny and a rundown of what’s drawing our attention across the solar system.

The story of Destiny 2 is one of evolution. Though the core of the game has always existed as it does now–it’s about shooting aliens, and the shooting of aliens is very satisfying–just about everything else that facilitates the shooting of aliens has undergone massive changes. Both on purpose and by accident, I’ve been covering Destiny 2 throughout the whole of its life, and I’ve been witness to every adjustment, iteration, change, expansion, season, and hotfix since its release.

There are very few games like Destiny, if there are any at all. I’ve never seen a game go through so much invention and reinvention, or to spend so much time discovering its identity and to grow into it so well. I’ve also never had a game stick with me to the degree that this one has. I haven’t always liked Destiny 2 over the course of its history, but I’ve always been impressed by it–its scope, its ideas, its ambition. In the second half of its life in particular, I think Destiny 2 has finally become the game that Bungie pitched all the way back in 2013.

Keanu Reeves Wants To Direct Netflix’s BRZRKR Film

In addition to acting in movies and video games, Keanu Reeves keeps busy with other ventures, including co-writing a comic book called BRZRKR. Netflix is turning the comic book into a film and animated series, and Reeves recently told Collider that he may want to helm the movie himself.

“I know how it’s a lot of work, but the film that I directed, Man of Tai Chi, was born, I became the director because I was part of the writing process, and I didn’t want to hand it over,” Reeves said. “I was like, oh, okay, I have to direct this. I’m not quite there yet on BRZRKR. I have to read the script, but I’m also interested in having a collaborator and what they could bring to it.”

The likelihood of Reeves directing the film seems fairly low even to the actor himself, who says there’s a 33% chance he’ll end up as director. Screenwriter Mattson Tomlin tweeted last week that he’d finished the first draft of the script Reeves referred to in the above quote. Tomlin is also working on a Terminator animated series and, most recently, the script for The Batman 2.

Overwatch 2 – Kiriko Hero Guide

Overwatch 2 is now here, bringing a massive update to the hero shooter. New modes, a new battle pass, and new heroes headline the new game, including a brand-new healer character, Kiriko. While owners of the original Overwatch will have instant access to Kiriko, new players will have to play to earn her, along with some of the original roster, or unlock her instantly by buying the premium battle pass. Here’s everything you need to know about the new healer, Kiriko.

Kiriko overview

Kiriko is a fast-moving healer with a high ceiling. She can continuously heal her teammates with primary fire, the Healing Ofuda. This sends out paper talismans that track down the teammates you are aiming at when firing them. These Ofuda don’t move particularly fast, but Kiriko’s kit is designed around sticking in the firefight, near your teammates. Her abilities give her the chance to move around a ton to avoid being taken down and while her secondary fire, the Kunai, doesn’t provide as much damage as some other healers, its quick fire and reload speed makes it handy enough to take down an enemy that gets too close.
