Divinity Original Sins 2 is a loooong game. I'm still not done with Reaper's Isle... and I just now realized that I have to get back on the boat and go to a couple of other places too!

It would be, but I've played non-multiplayer games on my phone that require a WiFi connection to logon before you can start playing (which is really silly). I was hoping it would not be the same for the Switch!

What video games can teach us about strategy and leadership

EDIT -- also attached directly, as I just noticed pdfs are acceptable attachments
Thanks for sharing. It's very interesting and well written. Looking forward to your next article

Destiny 2 announced that cross-platform saves will go live on Aug/21, meaning you can migrate your progress from one platform to another. In my case I'll be going from PS4 to PC after abandoning the game for a bit over a year (I really feel like the season pass post-forsaken wasn't really that great), anyone else excited for this/the new upcoming update?

So this is only save progress, right? I would have to buy the game again to play on the other platform, but just use my save? Bought for PC a long time ago but haven't played through any expansions. Would like to play on XB1 for a more relaxing time with friends, but wouldn't want to have to drop more money on it :/

I find myself going back to Destiny 2 every couple of weeks. Each time, I feel like I'm falling behind more and more. But I can't quit it (although I have completely quit the crucible). I've only paid attention to high level news (like the switch to steam and going semi free to play), but the guys I play with have been really excited about the Bungie/Activision split and the upcoming changes. I'm guessing I'll get a little time in this weekend.

Does Destiny 2 have a single player campaign? I'm interested in trying some FPS games, but i'm not gonna play online.

Thanks -- it combines two of my passions: video games, and obscure, tortured metaphors!

Most of the lessons are things my company struggles with, but when I shared it with the other execs, they each focused on a different one, which was interesting.

It does, but I think you still need to be online to play, and the social area is mandatory to progress. You should do a quick Google before you get it, because I think a lot of the single player stuff is going free to play next month.
