Destiny 2 is basically tomorrow night for NZ. Good lord I'm excited.
Binding of Isaac is also one of my favorite games of all time. For anyone that picks it up for the first time and is a little underwhelmed, I had massive buyers remorse at first. It's not until multiple playthroughs and unlocks until it all starts to make sense.

Knack was pretty boring for me, it's even a meme now. *Knack 2 will be the greatest game ever*

Playing Knack and it does exactly what it says on the tin, its a well crafted and family friendly platform - some of us have need of such things.

And of course the Destiny hype train is rattling through my station.
