Destiny 2 Is Your Destiny, We're Armed for ARMS, and the Rest of This Week's Headlines

ENDING CREDITS | Taking a look a back at this week's headlines and everything else you might have missed on USgamer.

That about wraps it up for another week. It was a good week. Then again, I'm at the point where I consider any week we don't spend wrapped in nuclear hellfire to be a "good week."

There are worse ways to live.

After all, I could be a tuxedo-wearing cat forced to pose incessantly for the camera.

The week started off on a low note, but the reveal event for Destiny 2 made its last couple of days a bit frantic. In like a space-lamb, out like a space-lion, as they say.

Here are some highlights of our content this week, bundled good n' tight for easy perusal:

That's it for another week. Behave yourselves.

Oh, wait – We need ending music!

I've never played Xenogears. The classic PSOne RPG eluded me for some reason. I know a fuzzy creature called Chu Chu is crucified, and that's the extent of my Xenogears knowledge. Really, what else do I need to know?

But my Xeno-ignorance doesn't keep me from enjoying its ending theme, Small of Two Pieces. I've tried singing it a few times, but not with much success. Its notes are high up there, and I'm as alto as hell.

There's a special nostalgia attached to the themes that capped off a lot of PlayStation games at the time. Free of cartridge constraints, developers stretched their limbs and made use of their extra space in interesting ways. Sometimes they packed CDs full of ugly CGI. And sometimes they gave us vocal tracks.

Most PlayStation-era vocal tracks are middle-of-the-road, but Small of Two Pieces is a very nice listen. It's lead singer is Joanne Hogg, a musician from Northern Ireland. Hogg performed for a long time in the Christian rock group, Iona, until the band broke up in 2016.

It's worth noting Hogg's father was a minister, and as far as I know, she's religious herself. I wonder if she ever played Xenogears, and if she did, what she thought of its bonkers religious symbolism.
