Destiny 2: Warmind

Destiny 2: Warmind review: A small expansion surrounded by bigger steps towards salvation

The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC for Assassin's Creed: Origins is Assassin's Creed at its best

"Egypt is under attack by mummies!" sounds like a bad setup, but Assassin's Creed: Origins Curse of the Pharaohs is a thoughtful, intriguing, and—above all—immensely creative expansion.

Radical Heights
