@ps3gamer1234: No, the Giant Bomb guys should definitely get paid for their work.

Jonnny Depp didn't need to be replaced, and it's a shame he resigned, but Mads Mikkelsen is a good choice for replacement.

Now if only these movies were actually good. : \

Bungie is really using every part of the Destiny buffalo with this expansion. At least on the new destination. They're eeking out a lot more content, progression and things to do in Beyond Light than they did in Shadowkeep (and maybe even Forsaken). Not all of it is great, but it's certainly better than where Destiny has been for the last couple seasons.

I'd really like to see Bungie create a progression system for the other destinations that's similar to new one on Europa. I'd also really like to see them rework the Light subclasses to be as customizable as Stasis appears to be. They've come up with some good ideas for Beyond Light, but that does make the rest of the game feel like it needs an overhaul.

@wiseman0: It really doesn't. All the locations that got removed hadn't been relevant for a couple years. They were content only in that you could go there and shoot things, but there hadn't been any progression tied to them in ages. Destiny has always been a game where only the newest content actually matters, and they removed four of the oldest destinations.

Also, and I don't know if this is a result of Bungie shrinking the game, it runs a lot better on my Xbox now than it did before the expansion.

@stunningham: Agreed. There are a couple of issues (activities still in the game - from expansions still on sale - drop gear that is largely unusable, and the Cosmodrome is totally pointless at the moment), but the new expansion content and the seasonal activities are all good. And Bungie is really using every part of the Destiny buffalo, eeking as much content as they can out of the new stuff (the notable exception being the Cosmodrome, for now).

And I don't care what the official forums say, I really like Stasis in PvP.

@scott_willy: Agreed. Rogue One was good, Solo was good with an asterisk, The Mandalorian has been largely good. Clearly, Disney CAN create quality Star Wars, but didn’t with the mainline trilogy.

@timthegem: I don't know, I felt like the first two acts of The Force Awakens was building Finn's character up to be one of the leads, right behind Rey. But in the last act Rey didn't need anybody's help to do anything, and that left Finn with nothing important to do and more or less just along for the ride.

It wasn't until The Last Jedi, when they introduced Rose (another character that didn't leave room for a meaningful partner), that Finn got relegated to the bumbling sidekick/comic relief).

Since John couldn't have read the script for The Last Jedi or Rise of Skywalker before doing The Force Awakens, I can totally see how he'd be let down by where his character ended up going. I was; Finn ended up being a victim of sloppy writing (along with basically everyone/thing in those movies).

I don't think Finn got sidelined because he was black, I think he got sidelined because those movies were increasingly poorly written. Watching the sequel trilogy, it was like somebody made an AI watch all the previous Star Wars movies then read social media for a while and spit out a script mathmatically designed to maximize profits. Fan service, representation, cool visuals, merchandizing opportunities; I'm pretty sure all this stuff was prioritized ahead of the writing, and the poor screen writers had to do their best to make a story that connected all the prescribed dots.

The prequals are still bad, and in some ways worse than the sequels, but at least you can tell that one guy had a story in mind from start to finish and made those films to tell it.
