Tune in wherever you feel most at home to watch three developers from Bungie build their ideal Titan, Hunter, or Warlock. They’ll apply Mods, Artifacts, and Ornaments to build their own version of the perfect monster killing machine. Then Bungie will be testing those builds in the new Sandbox.

RECENT NEWS (via Bungie.net)
Aug 01: Shadowkeep – New Launch Window
As I have mentioned I will be moving to playing on PC primarily once Borderlands 3 and Shadowkeep arrive. If any of you would like to you may feel free to add me on Steam and join my Discord server. I will be using this Discord to keep in touch with my community, post infographics and other content, and other things like giveaways. Overall I really want my Discord server to mainly be somewhere people that enjoy the content I make can gather as well as be a fun and laid back community where people can chat and find others to play games with. I hope to see you all there!
Have a great week everyone!
