The spirit of Wii is alive and well in Hyper Sports R

Here's a story trailer with no story for Destiny 2: Forsaken

The email with a link to this trailer from Activision included the tagline: What. Just. Happened. Having watched the trailer, I have no fucking clue. Maybe the Destiny 2 players who have put more than six billion hours into the franchi...
