What’s better than a bunch of PAX announcements? A bunch of announcements from before PAX! Welcome to another edition of #DailyHotTake.
Destiny 2 Forsaken calls for lost guardians
These hot takes are a bit negative, but Marcus is actually quite excited for Destiny 2 Forsaken. The new game mode Gambit is addicting and the story content may be some of the best in the series.

Nope. Not this Hunter. This hunter moved on to greener pastures and friendlier ecosystems long ago with no intention of returning. Good luck storming the castle, or whatevs. #DailyHotTake https://t.co/FQ1wdCz9kj

It particularly focused on the sexist work culture and the employee’s who were both directly and indirectly affected by it.

TowerFall climbs onto Switch
There are few games we’d consider perfect, but TowerFall comes real close. As Switch becomes the go-to console for local multiplayer, it was only a matter of time before TowerFall found its way onto the platform. Welcome home, little guy.

Spider-Man fans get pissy over puddles
Some people can never be satisfied. Eager Spider-Man fans have accused Insomniac Games of downgraded the graphics from E3 footage to the release build of the game, noting differences in the size of some puddles. People have too much time on their hands these days.
As someone who has been somewhat engaged with this community, let me confirm: Yes, people really are freaking out over this and yes, it's every bit as absurd as it sounds. #DailyHotTakehttps://t.co/XELktUfOKn

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is getting a physical release
Shovel Knight has released so much content over the last few years that it is unsurprising that it can release a full-fledged collection. It’s incredible what a small passionate team can do.
Shovel Knight has treated the world well, delivering on all their Kick Starter promises and give fans above and beyond what they've asked for. It's the game that keeps on giving. Thanks @YachtClubGames #DailyHotTake https://t.co/h4ufoEyHbT
