Rise of Iron is in our hands, so it's Destiny time on this week's Kotaku Splitscreen, a podcast in which we travel through space shooting aliens with thermal paste. Today's episode sees the introduction of two new features — Weekly NFL Picks and the Roomba Report — as well as a deep dive into the good, bad and ugly in Destiny's latest piece of downloadable content. The short version: We dug the campaign, although the story was sort of a mess. (Would you expect anything else from Destiny?) The new Supremacy PVP mode is great, and we're stoked to check out all the new exotic quests. We're also very, very excited for the next raid.
