Grabbed it. Now can someone explain why a game with ridiculous glowy explosions and mini-guns is called 'Shadow Warrior'?

Also the first game came out 21 years ago, https://store.steampowered.com/app/238070/Shadow_Warrior_Classic_1997/ When crude jokes about racism were more acceptable than say 2018.  Also it came from the Duke Nukem 3d engine and that style of humour which hasn't aged all that well  but some of the bits have been the same, lots of blood/gore, good gun play.

Just a heads up that the base Destiny 2 game is free right now on Battle.net. I got it through the blizz launcher as a gift but I think you can just get it from the site too if you log in to your battle.net account.
Don't mind me. I'm just admiring the shape of your skull.

The way I read it it seemed like Destiny was only a free for 2 weeks.  Did I misread that?

Yes, it's free until the 18th. That doesn't mean that after the 18th you lose it. Just means if you don't claim (install) it by then, you miss out.

I didn't have to give any credit card details. Signed up for an account, clicked on the link, it was added to my library (the only thing there), downloaded the launcher. The only thing they asked for was my email address.

Yeah, I didn't have to give any info either. I just logged into my uplay account and it added it.

I think if you go through the web site it is a problem? If you have the client probably a better experience.  I had to put in the CC to complete the order.  Horrible design and web site and I should know as this is the shit I work on every day.
