Destiny 2 Beyond Light takes you into the darkness on November 10

Bungie has been hard at work delivering new content to Destiny 2 year after year. Last year, we saw New Light, and the year before that we got Forsaken. This time around, the team at Bungie is going a different route, and exploring the opposite of New Light…with Beyond Light. Yeah, the title is a bit cliche, but Destiny 2 Beyond Light will take you to places where no Guardian ever thought they’d travel. You’ll be heading into the darkness because that’s the only way to defeat it.

Google Pixel 2 gets a $100 price cut at Best Buy on 2-year activations

From 9to5Toys

Best Buy is currently running a sale on the Google Pixel 2 that brings the price down from a total of $650 to $550 over the course of 2 years. This sale only applies to Verizon models as Best Buy obviously doesn’t sell the Google Store version. Remember, this has to be done on a 2-year activation through your Verizon account, so you can’t just buy it outright at the $100 discount. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have been riddled with minor issues lately, but Google is determined to fix them.
