A highlight from What Are PS5's Best Games So Far? - Beyond 727
"Show where we cover all the latest and greatest in the world of PlayStation and maybe provide a couple laughs along the way, but that's not a guarantee because sometimes we're very serious. Very, very serious, but maybe not this week. We'll find out what happens because I'm joined this week by Jada Griffin. Hello. Hello. To be back. Yeah, happy to have you back. Thank you. Thank you for joining us after your week off last week for your birthday happy birthday to you. Thank you, thank you. And of course on the show. Good. And we're also joined this week by Mark Medina. Mark, serious Medina. They know jokes today. This is a serious episode. Mark, you've never, you've never tried to make a joke in your life I heard. I've never joked in my life. I've never smiled, I'm smiling right now. We all took I was gonna say we all yeah, you never laugh but you laughed immediately, so I couldn't even. I can't stick to anything. We all took the week off last week. It was Thanksgiving in America. Oh yeah, the week before that. So yeah, I'm 52 weeks back. I don't know what time is anymore. I feel like I feel like I haven't worked in forever. I've been on vacation since last Tuesday, which, like, is it the longest amount of time, but still, it feels weird, but I'm glad to be back. Yeah, we're the first thing I'm doing as I'm back. This is my first order of business. So it's perfect. Well, it's gonna be quite an episode to have you back first for. And of course, yeah, we'll be back this week. There will be some time off toward the end of the year that will let you know in the next week or two to confirm. But obviously, with the Christmas and new year's holidays coming up, we will be a little quiet around the end of this year. But we've got a few more episodes before we wrap up this year. And before we get into that, what's to come? There might be some announcements at The Game Awards and whatnot. That will dive into after that show happens. But for now, you know, we our last episode, we took a look forward to the future of what might be with PlayStation studios. And the potential 25 games on the horizon. So what better way to complement that than after looking to the future to look to the past? Because that's how time works. And so this week, we're going to be jumping into trying to decide what the best PlayStation 5 games are so far. I'm sure we will all agree very easily very quickly there will be no contention whatsoever. It will be just fine. No, we thought, you know, as sort of a continued look back at the first year of the PS5 and also a lot of cross gen games in there. We want to take a look back and celebrate all that stuff and sort of figure out what our combined sort of favorite games are at the PS5 so far. I think it's worth noting, of course, like we do do a feature like this on IGN, this is not a duplication of that. There will be that own sort of list probably early next year that will produce and everything because that will be my job to do. But we're going to all hash it out here and see what tops are combined podcast beyond best PS5 games list so far. Yeah, this isn't IGN's list. No. This is the beyond wacky cruise list. Yeah, this is podcast beyond yeehaw roundup of games. And I at least be the head lackeys when I said I'm sorry. Anyway, before we jump in, I think it's important that I establish a few ground rules because I had told both of you some ground rules before we recorded started recording. And I've decided those rules are silly. I also don't plan on following any rules. So please waste your breath by telling me the rules. Perfect. Well, all I was going to say was originally we had talked, I was struggling a lot to do with things like definitive additions or games that had PS5 versions come out afterward, things of that nature. Yeah, we established yesterday. That we don't know what a PlayStation 5 game is. I don't think anyone does right now. We just don't write, because it's like, there's so many versions, right? There's something like Returnal. That is a PS5 game. There's something like Assassin's Creed Odyssey that is a PS4 game that got a PS5 hatch, but is not a PS5 game. It does not say PS5 on the dashboard. But then there's also Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which got a PS4 and PS5 version. So yeah, I think something like this stranding that got a definitive PS5. So I think the ground rule that I do want to allow, I do want to allow those directors cuts the chance to be here. Damn it. But I knew this would cause havoc for Mark. So what I am going to say is that the director's cuts are allowed. I'm going to say it needs to have a dedicated PS5 version of the game. So if it's just has to say PS5 on the dashboard. Yes, essentially, if you looked on the dashboard of your PS5, it said PS5 there. Obviously, this will include a lot of games that are available on PS4. There are RPS four versions of those games, but we're not talking about games that have that our PS4 versions running better. So something like ratchet and clank from 2016 got a PS5 patch as well. That was days gone.

A highlight from Busted GTA Remaster Gets Big Patch, But How Did This Even Happen? - Kinda Funny Games Daily 11.30.21
"What's up gamers? You are watching kind of funny games dating for the 30th of November 2021. I am your host more Hussain and joining me. Once again is Gary whitta are you doing Gary? Good, third time hosting together. I've enjoyed the first two. Let's see how this works. We've been a good combo so far I think. Yeah, I'm enjoying it. It's good to have a like minded like voiced person to talk to every now and then. The question is, are we going to waste another as we've done both show some together? Weighs another 30 minutes to talking about a bunch of British bullshit, the 90% of our audience won't. I mean, people based on what I've seen people are like, I don't understand any of it, but it sounds cool and I'm enjoying it. But I think we've rapidly run out of multiple British things like earlier today I was looking at a new story about crazy frog. And I was like, is that a British thing? Yeah, crazy frog is coming back. Can you believe that? Which is weird because canonically they kill him off. Like he's dead. Crazy frog should be dead. No one's ever dead when there's still money to be made. They'll always find a way to bring those characters back. It's a crazy, I guess crazy frog wasn't a thing here. It was huge, though, not just in the UK, but in Europe and I think around the world, but maybe it missed America somehow. Yeah, I mean, like, if Jesus can come back for Christmas, crazy frog can come back for Christmas. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, ding ding crazy. Christmas? I know. I know but I needed to make it work for the sport at Christmas. That's the limit of my knowledge. Yeah. So he's making a comeback in December and literally the explanation on the BBC have done a long article on it, and it was like how was crazy frog spawn? And literally the article boils down to this lad wanted some money, so they brought it back. And I was like, okay fair enough. Yeah, I was reading the article. I remember so crazy froggers at one point, the number one selling of all time ringtone. Remember when ringtones were a thing? You would buy a ringtone? Yeah, the adverts for ringtones on the TV for people who don't know what crazy frog is for context. It was just really annoying frog that did a song called axel F, which is the Beverly Hills cop theme. And would just replace all the sounds with a ding ding ding ding ding ding and it was just really annoying. Infuriating like hyper high pitched vocalizations. It's hard to explain it. But that just don't, but if you wanted to, you can go to YouTube and see it for yourself. But he's coming back, apparently. He's coming back. And lord knows what ways. I'd love it if he did. What movie theme would you want him? I would love to see him do like ding ding on The Avengers theme, which is pretty good. Oh yeah. That would be that will be a way to sell it. But I want to kick off by giving you something I know you love. Because one, it lets us talk about your Christmas jumper. But two, because I know you love four guys, update for four guys. New seasons kicking off today. And the big update for me is Jin Sakai from goes to sashimi. Oh, that's right. In the game. There's a samurai outfit. And a ghost outfit, which is amazing. How are you feeling about fall guys? Now that new season started and tell us also about your Christmas jumper. This actually was said to me by the good people at media tonic. This is the official fall guys. Oh, Christmas jumper. And it felt appropriate. I saw you on Twitter early today to automate maybe wearing a Christmas sweater for the show. I feel like, you know, once we get past Thanksgiving, we can turn on the Mariah Carey. We can fully get into it, but you pre up, get the Christmas jumpers on, start drinking the you know all the peppermint drinks and what have you. We're actually gonna go out and get our tree later today. So I was going through my Christmas jumpers early today. I've got a bunch of nerdy ones that got like a Mario one on a Star Wars one at various other things. But this one, first of all, fits me the best because it's very baggy. But also forgo season 6 out today. I'm going to be playing that later today. So it felt like a double celebration. I've always loved fall guys. But in the last couple of updates, they kind of fell off a little bit. We want to know update comes out in this new round. You always want to go back and see what's new. So my daughter's very excited about it as well, she's a big fall guys player. We're going to check it out later today. So that is those brilliant. So I'm going to do an explainer of my Christmas Joe Parker. Who's that? Kind of. So as people who don't know, I'm a Muslim. Traditionally, we don't celebrate Christmas. However, I am also a child of the western world. And I had got no beef with Christmas, you know what I'm saying? I'm progressive when it comes like that. So very much I am a product of, you know, South Asian meets western kind of like traditions. And I thought what better way to kind of highlight that, then pick a jumper that represents the melding of two unexpected different sources of background in history. So I wore this special jumper that I'm sure anime fans will recognize. Go

"2021, when your host blessing, Adi junior, joining me is the lecroy poppy himself. Tim, my fucking gettys. We're back baby, and it feels good. The intro did that thing that does every once in a while where it was just a little longer than normal, and it's like. It's that one second of silence feels like kind of eternity. I don't understand how ever changes. It's the same button. There is no other button. I press the same button every day and sometimes sometimes for an unknown reason. It just goes a little longer. I like it because of toes. Yeah, that's why I like you to keep me on my toes. I've had it happening emotionally. It's so much Chanel. I'm like, don't let it faze you don't let it faze. You don't change the facial expression. Just keep eye contact and just keep that smile until he's revealed. I love it. Early whites, baby. How are you doing? I'm doing fantastic, man. I'm happy to be here with you. Today we have a lot of fun content. We're back California content is back. We've been gone last couple days. We just reviewed hawkeye episodes one and two. Those will be going up on YouTube dot com slash kind of funny soon. We got matrix and review starting later today. What a time to be alive. How excited are you for matrix? I'm very, very excited very. Okay. Are you a matrix fan? Yeah. I mean, I wouldn't say I'm like a super fan, but yeah, definitely a fan. Gotcha, gotcha. I might make this my opportunity to rewatch matrix 'cause that's one of those movies that I haven't seen since like the early 2000s. Since I was a kid, it's not an HTML max. All of them. The new one evens going to be on HBO Max when it comes to matrix. Oh man. I don't know. Dude, animatrix is my shit. I've never wanted to see it. I was promised that we were going to make that part of the review, but I guess it's not. That was fun because that was one of the ones where that was during, I believe I was like WB kids. And I was during the Saturday morning cartoons block of I think you're thinking something else. I think it was something else. No, you're right. I'm thinking of the Men in Black cards. It's very different. I don't know what? I don't know why the minute black cartoonist. I don't know why I got those things confused. I have no idea why. The Men in Black cartoon was on The WB kids on Saturday morning and that was my shit. But you never knew what to expect. Plus, two things. First off, I just threw my headphones down way too hard. Yeah, yeah. Suck it up. Suck it off. Okay, I hate you. I hate you so much. But I'm gonna go away in the matrix real quick. The bed and black out of it show was fucking awesome. It was great, wasn't it? It was really good. It was really good. Only two Godzilla the animated series. Those images wasn't a series. I mean, it was like it was like a anthology film. Oh shit. It was four. Maybe 5? 9. 15 minute, not no way. 9? I think so. No, that sounds wrong. That's what it was. It was like just anime stories from the matrix world that fill in things between one and two. That's crazy. All this whole time, I thought I'd watch any matrix. But it was Men in Black the cartoon. But the point I was making though, I'm just gonna shift it to Men in Black the cartoon real quick. I think it was called. The minute black the animated series. That was one of the ones where I would show up to WB kids to watch Jackie Chan adventures specifically. And static shock. And then everything else was like, okay, we'll see if this stuff slaps or not. Men in Black, the animated series was one that caught me off guard. Where I was like, oh, there's no way this could be. Even as a kid, I was like, there's no way this can be good. And I watched it and I was like, this is incredible. This is fantastic. So good. Fantastic content. But Tim, we got a whole bunch of fantastic content to get into. So let's talk about today's stories which include a new marvel MMO incoming.

A highlight from Halo Infinite Campaign Preview - Ep. 251
"It feels good to be back. It's been a long time since it's just been me and you. You and I. It has been. We've been having just a parade of wonderful special guests on the show and hopefully if you are just joining us if this is your first episode of what's good games, you should check out the last couple of weeks of shows, some really wonderful special guests and a big thank you to everybody who has taken the time to join us here on the show. It's been great and we look forward to having some more special guests in upcoming episodes. Secret plans. But Brittany, I do want to mention, you look like you've got a new set piece. What's going on? What are you sitting on? I really wanted to say something so fucking inappropriate just now. I'll keep it together. I'll try. I'll try it. I am sitting on a DX racer, air series chairs. So I've had my old chair the one that you're all very, very familiar with. I've had that share for probably 7 years. Wow. Yeah, it had been. Longevity for a chair. It is, and that was a lot of farts. It was just wet, probably like spit it for my kid, probably spit up for me whisky stains. Yeah, it took it like a champ, though. And they were like, hey, we have this error, you know, this little air series out. Do you want one? And I was like, yes, please, I would love one for review. And to sit on and far on, et cetera et cetera because it's all mesh in the back. And so it's really nice because I get kind of sweaty Betty up in this bitch. I have these lights on me. And you know, I drink when we record the show. And sometimes it gives me the whisky sweat. You don't say. The whisky sweats are real, I know you know what I'm talking about. But I do. Yeah, shout out to them. And I love it because it's pink. Look, I the surprise pink when you turn to the side, I was shook. I love it. And I know that there is a contingency of people out there that don't think, you know, it's okay to like pink things, but we're both here to be like fuck you. Love. We love pink things. Yes, absolutely. So yeah, that's my new set piece. Thanks for noticing. Yeah, no. I mean, how could I not? I think I've seen you in the other chair now 250 episodes worth. Well, okay, that's a lie. You haven't been in that chair for all 250 episodes. You came down to the studio many times. Oh, don't remind me. Someday you'll come back to the studio. Someday soon. Oh boy, I just wanted to call that out there because it was the first thing I noticed when you got on camera. I was like, oh, new chair. Very cool. Thank you to everybody for joining us and thank you to our Patreon producers to his godson, Alex or gopal is David ei kulu Ferris Justin faux she Matthew gooder and punk divide and welcome to our Patreon community Aaron west. If you want to support our voices and video games, you can do so by tossing us a couple of bucks at Patreon dot com slash what's good games. And Brittany looks like we have a couple new podcast reviews. We do, we have David new ladybug unicorn, which I was like trying to figure it out. What is a ladybug unicorn? Now Andrea, is it a ladybug with a horn coming out of it? Or is it a unicorn that looks like a ladybug in prince? Oh. I don't know. I feel like I would rather see a unicorn with like a ladybug coloring. That's cool. Me too. 'cause like a beetle with a horn sounds, not great. Okay. And also to a nerve. Thank you so much for those lovely, lovely reviews. You know, we did get someone who said that we have a good podcast, Andrea and I know you saw this, because you tweeted about it. But they gave us one star because timer left. They said good podcast, but time are left here's one star. And so you stir madam I say a big fuck you. Please don't do that. It's not good for our little show here. You know, it really does affect our ratings in our spot in the little Apple algorithm. So ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, if you want to offset that person's tomfoolery, please, if you're so inclined, please leave us a 5 star review. It helps us a ton. And like I tweeted, I don't normally like to highlight that kind of negativity because here at what's good games, we're all about positivity and things were passionate about and that we love. But it was just, I think such a bummer because you and I are both exhausted because of small children in our lives. And I was just in a low place and when the email came in with the new reviews and I saw that review, I was like, I'm already devastated that she's gone. And then to give us a once to review for something that was completely out of our control, just kind of like sent me into this spiral. So thank you to everybody who reached out and who responded to my tweet and who took the time to leave a 5 star review, we do really appreciate them and are grateful. But we don't want to belabor it anymore. We know that there's some news that we have to get to. And unfortunately, we are starting with a rather melancholy story, so you probably have seen. That Activision Blizzard has been in the news for not great things for about the last four months now. When Brittany and I were on maternity leave is when it really broke bad when the lawsuit was first brought against them and we learned details about some ongoing and systemic problems happening inside Activision Blizzard. I'm not going to recap all of that news, because quite frankly, it's a lot to recap and there are sites that have done it far better. But the new report is from The Wall Street Journal, and it's about Bobby Kodak and how he had knowledge of what was happening when he had previously denied it. So the reports at The Wall Street Journal alleged that he not only knew about what was going on in the sexual harassment allegations happening inside the company. But he also partook in them, which is real bad. Real real bad. And it's just all around really gross. And clearly indicative of a leadership problem inside Activision Blizzard. Now, I think it's really telling that we have seen statements from PlayStation and we've seen statements from Nintendo and Xbox. There are three platform partners all rallying around this idea that it's distressing and disturbing what's happening inside Activision and now there are close to 1800 employees at Activision Blizzard that have signed a petition. That petition says we the undersigned no longer have confidence in the leadership of body Bobby Kodak as the CEO of Activision Blizzard, the information has come to light about his behaviors and practices in the running of our companies, runs counter to the culture and integrity we require of our leadership and directly conflicts with the initiatives started by our peers. We ask that Bobby coda remove himself as CEO of Activision Blizzard on that shareholders be allowed to select the new CEO without the input of Bobby, who we are aware on the substantial portion of the voting rights of the shareholders.
A highlight from The 100 Questions Challenge (2021 Edition)
"Hey everyone. And Justin Davis. Cat. And we ended up this has been a few years now. We do this hundred questions special because the week of Thanksgiving here in the U.S., we have a long weekend and don't have time to produce a regular episode of game scoop that week, but we can pre tape this, have it all ready to go for you and it's fitting. You can gorge yourself on a lightning round of 5 20 questions rounds as you gorge yourself on your Thanksgiving dinner. For us here in the U.S.. So got a great show for you this week. Got some great games. I've lined up. One of the games was released between the years 1980 and 2021. One of the games has graphics and sounds. So it's going to be pretty exciting stuff. But first, I'd be Guardians of the Galaxy just now actually very nice. Consensus. It hasn't really changed. Very, very fun game, great game, a little too rough around the edges to be top tier for me. It's probably not in my game of your shortlist. But it is one of the I think I only finished 5 or 6 games this year, I could actually finish, and that's one of the my list. Very, very fun game, highly recommended. I liked it a lot. A worthy one to finish too, very specific. Yeah. And looking forward to getting back to both seconds two and fortune. But with that out of the way, let's get to our hundred questions challenge. I've selected 5 games and they have a hundred questions to get through them all, so, you know, and if they guess, you know, the first one in ten questions. That means they still have an extra ten questions to use on all the other games. So they could end up spending more than 20 questions on one game if they need it. Yeah. We've never lost it. What's up? We've never lost this, right? I think you have. Oh, great. The gamesmanship of hundred questions always stresses me out 'cause sometimes it's like 15 questions and we're not close. Yeah. And then it's like, do we just give up? Do we pull the rip forward? It's true. You keep going. That's part of the additional strategy. You can give up and just let a game go if you just feel like you're just burning too many questions on it. You want to get to the next one. But here's a hint. There is a meta game at play here. Okay. These games are connect are connected somehow. And if we really, really want to give up, we can just leave. That's true. We're going to go. Where the user submitted? I'm not going to reveal that at this time. Oh, okay. Okay. So I think I know what the better is. Okay. They're all 5. They're all from Jared. Oh, yeah. No, it's gotta be something Thanksgiving Y, maybe a family game, maybe multiplayer games. We can get there. Maybe it's the 5 games Damon beat this year. Oh. Okay. Well, without could be it. Don't any further ado let the grand questioning begin. Oh, no. And that's why he's led to the episode just for that one gag. There's just to make sure. Guardians spend in there. Okay, well, I'm gonna start with are we starting? Yeah, let's start. Okay, I'm gonna start with my one of my theories, which is is this a multiplayer game? Oh my gosh. What a great start. Can you define? Okay, so not, I guess. What Damon define multiplayer? That's what I want to hear. But I think what he means is like, you know, more massively multiplayer. Go up. Some games have multiplayer, but you might not call them a multiplayer game. That's what I think that's why I'm trying to close. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So that's fair. Does this game have multiplayer? Yes. Oh, I see. It was just the able multiplayer game. Yeah. When Damon's making goofs at the start saying these games have graphics and these games were released in the last 40 years. There are a couple of video games that don't have graphics. So now we know exactly. That's true. Great hint. Not a point and click adventure or a text adventure rather. Is this game from after the year 2000? No. Okay. Is this from before the year 1990? Yes. Was this on the NES? Yes. Was the multiplayer co op mode? No. That's 5. Okay. Taking off competitive. This is such a good framed gat shot right here. This is like what you take your cat to school to get your school portrait shot. Yeah. Seriously. Don't make me laugh too much 'cause then she'll run away. Okay, okay, deal. Is that how cats work? Doesn't have a sense of humor. Yeah. She doesn't like too much movement. Okay, so it's on the NES, but it could be a tradeoff multiplayer or a competitive multiplayer which would be very unusual. But it could be something. Okay. Is this the game that was made by Nintendo? No. Was it ported from an arcade game? Yes. Bubble bobble. That's cooperative. Oh yeah. Hey, how about this? Did the arcade game that this was from come out before the year 1983? Yes. Okay, so we're talking about a classic arcade game boarded to NES talking about later. Yeah, this would be your millipede centipedes. You donkey Kong's you get is there a PacMan on the NES? There's three of them. Three just PacMan cartridges alone. And then there's a miss PacMan in a PacMan. And two versions of that. So let's see. Is this developed in Japan? No. Okay. Is this an Atari game? No, that's ten. Well, what about what about ten gun Activision? No, they didn't do a lot of Arkansas. Ten guineas Atari. Right, all right, but yeah. Be a bootleg Atari. Yeah, break in the room. Wait, can we recap what? 'cause we just like flew through a bunch. Yeah, we don't know anything about the game. We only know that it was like from arcades from 1983. It had an appearance on the NES. So it could be a game from gottlieb, like Hubert's probably Hubert. Or it could be it's weird that it's American made an arcade like early arcade era then later made its way to the NES. It would help to know if you're a human in our animal or something like that. That would be helpful or arguably either. What's the law? What's qubit loris? See an alien? I think he's a monster that swears a lot. He does swear a lot. Is this a gottlieb game?
A highlight from Giant Bombcast 713: Pokmon BDSM
"Jesse gold, Sanjay Singh hall and John Hopkins. I found myself in a situation where I knew I was going down the bad path and fortunately and around that time I heard about ayahuasca and I went through multiple ceremonies and it changed my life. I'm bipolar, it took a while for me to accept the diagnosis because back then it was still commonly known as being manic depressive. I thought, no, I'm depressed. I'm depressed. That was much more acceptable diagnosis. But, you know, emotional pain that's been there since childhood has definitely feeds into this music and I listened back that is kind of apparent. And I'm obsessed with this crossover point between sadness and beauty. Tune in each week as celebrities, artists, doctors and scientists share their psychedelic stories, be sure to follow field tripping wherever you listen to podcasts. What a baller's it's the giant bombcast. That's why that's my new intro, I got what you need to have a name for people that are listening to something. Can we bring back Jim Jones? Yes. Yes, we can. Yes. Hell yeah, absolutely. Hell yeah. Where's my cat? I've been waiting for this day this week. Yes. I don't get my job. Yeah, yes, go get up there. Get out there and get them. It's November 23rd and Jim Jones is back on the menu. Not that long. Jim Jones. Actually, he's not in the game. He's just on the soundtrack. I think that song is on the soundtrack. Or does he know he's in the game? I gotta look. Def Jam icon. E 40 is in icon that Jim Jones has to be an icon. Yeah. There's a lot of icons in depth John icon. There's a Jim Jones in yes, he is in Def Jam icon. The best or second best Def Jam video game. That's second best game with rap soundtrack. Of course, the winner being kingpin life of crime. Oh yeah, no, definitely. That's our Grand Theft Auto one. That's pretty good. I was talking to the guy who did the music for GTA one about that song yesterday. That is apparently that guy was a friend of somebody who went to Dundee university who was the only person they knew in Dundee who wrapped. He was just a sound like Manchester performed by this is the only guy we know who raps. But that didn't stop me and Ryan McDonald from taking the GTA one game disc that they sent over. It was like a burn. They sent over a burn of the PC version of the game for review purposes. And we listened to it in his Jeep because it was just redbook audio. So it was literally just the burned copy of the disk that thrown in the things over. This is the giant bomb that's just back colors here. How you doing? I'm doing all right. I can't complain a little bit of the anxiety starting to creep in about the holiday. You
A highlight from Nintendo Calls Out Activision Blizzard's Toxicity - Kinda Funny Games Daily 11.23.21
"What up everyone, you are watching kind of funny games daily for the 23rd of November. I'm your host when I'm saying, I am joined by Gary whitt the boys from Britain are back. How are you doing, Gary? Good, good. I'm glad to be back with you. That first show that we did whenever it was some weeks ago was really fun. So I'm glad they put us together again. It was a good time. I think we were vibing off each other as British people, and I want to try and keep that energy going, so I'm going to bring you something that I know that you love. So we can start off with that and that is four guys. A great British game. A great British game truly truly, it is the most British game I would say. It reminds me of previous shows. Are you old enough? You're not old enough to have grown up with it's a knockout on. It's a knockout. Oh, you did? Yeah, yeah. Everyone when they talk about four guys, the old reference takeshi's castle, but I think given that the game was developed in Britain was probably more influenced by its a knockout, which was like the great British version of that. I think when I watched there was reruns as well as like, as well as I think they tried to do like a newer version of it, but it didn't catch on. So I remember watching a lot of reruns of it. And there was like occasionally there would be like when they couldn't get new episodes going, they'd get like the Australian version or the other version. And it was never as good as the British one. I don't know if it's on YouTube, but for anyone who's not familiar with it and wants to have a good time, maybe maybe do a YouTube search for it to knock out on YouTube and maybe there'll be some clips of the old British TV show. I mean, I think a lot more like fall guys than anything else and that they would dress the contestants up in these ridiculous, massive costumes before us to kind of run around and negotiate these obstacle courses where then the announcer was famous for cracking up laughing because it was so ridiculous. It was a fun show. It's like I haven't thought about it to knock out for so long, but you mentioned it because I do my streams on Twitch. Where I usually start off my streams by watching crystal maze. The old school, the old school ones, and like my brain, my emotes are of like Richard O'Brien's face. And I learned so much. I just love watch that and fort boyard, a lot of as well, which I describe as horny crystal meze, which because they're basically is. But I had no idea that Richard O'Brien wrote the rocky or picture show. I didn't discover that until, I mean, he was he obviously already had a great resume before he even did the crystal maze. That's what he continues to be most famous for, you know, road it created is in the movie. And was also a great host of the crystal maze. They brought it back recently with Richard Leo. Did you see that? I've not seen that yet, but I think I'm going to give it a shot and work on my way through the old seasons and it's real real good. So I'm watching and there's a lot of Americans watching my stream because I'm watching streaming on Pacific time and they're like, this is wild and it's so cool. And there's a lot of people who are now fans of crystal maze because of it and I'm just like, I'm glad that this great British classic is it's a very good U.S. also since I've got you and I feel like we're going down the same British digression corner we did last time. But you'll appreciate this and it is actually relevant to our podcast. Did you see that they're bringing back games master? I did see it. I did see it. Yeah, I saw a few clips, and I know some of the people that are working on it. And it looks interesting. Games master back in the day was so much fun. You know, I was on it. I used to be on it. I was one of their guest reviewers when I was like a tiny baby game reviewer late 1926. Amazing. Clip this clips out there on YouTube of like very reviewing games on games master. I'm gonna find those. They replaced, what's his name? As the actual games master. So I saw a trailer with like a Scottish guy in like an Obi-Wan Kenobi robe. And I was like, did they bring back Dominic diamond, or is this something? It's not Dominic diamonds, rabe Florence. It's rad Flores. And they've got what's his name, the news anchor Trevor, the classic BBC McDonald? McDonald's. Yeah, he's a new Patrick. Oh, really? And it's really good. It's really good. He's really good, yeah. I might have to watch this. Yeah, they've got some real good time. I know Frankie ward, who's a well-known eSports commentator and analyst is working on it as well. And she's incredible and there's a bunch of great people of them. It sounds like they might be bringing it back more into the old show was, which was kind of a grab bag of reviews and it was like a magazine show. I guess it sounds like they might be leaning more into the competitive eSports and it is now? Yeah, so they have it's mainly around the competition element of it, and you do get that slight explanation of what a game is. So occasionally you'll see Trevor McDonald talking about, I don't know, Super Mario Brothers. I got to say Donald is the new games master is my brother. He's the same way that Patrick maro was back in the way. He's incredible. And like, it seems like I know a bunch like they've got like current content creators who make sense there like MC fixers on it. And that kind of stuff. He's a kind of funny best friend and various other people. So it looks like they're doing it right. I've not actually seen a full episode. I've only seen a couple of clips and there's also an Instagram filter where you can be the game's master and record yourself. How far we've come. It's incredible, but getting back to the original story for guy season 6. Yes, launching in November 30. So a week from today and they're doing the reveal of what season 6 is later today, correct? Well, I think it might be out. So I've already seen will be tumbling into a festival themed blunderdome on Tuesday 30 for 2021 with their launch of season 6, party spectacular. All right. So the details were revealed in a stream event. You can so you can watch that after this that you can get caught up on it. But it looks pretty cool. 5 new rounds, 25 new costumes, 50 tiers of fame, part rewards, sack

Unpacking the Apple vs Epic Ruling
"Versus epic. We kind of got the ruling after the whole lawsuit. We've talked about it before epic suing apple because they made them take out button that was leading people pay on third party site in apple. Obviously with their iowa store in their thirty percent. Cut doesn't want that to happen. so kind of is like Win lose lose more. Even though that's three parties there's only two parties associated. This seemed like everybody was not happy yet. Kind of kinda sorta so pretty much. The judge ruled that they're not being anti-competitive they claim. Success is not illegal and both apple and third party developers like epic have symbiotically benefited from ever increasing innovation and growth from the ios ecosystem. Fair feels pretty fair now they did also though and this is what kind of is a lose aspect for apple is that they They ruled there for permanent nationwide injunction blocking apple not only from keeping iphone users in the dark about alternate ways to pay but potentially allowing developers to stick their own purchase mechanisms into apps. So that's a win for developers. I'm yeah so initially that one rule that Epic was pretty mad about was that in-app purchases had to go through apple's payment method which automatically took a thirty percent cut and the argument was. Why should there be an only apple at purchase that there should be other options to be able to have our own in-app purchase methods. Should be offer alternates. Maybe some of them are cheaper because they don't have to go through a thirty percent cut from apple and this ruling is that apple will now need to allow other purchase methods for in-app purchases and there's a little bit of they're not quite sure how this is gonna work. What constitutes a button inside it and stuff so that'll be a little weird but so the reason epic doesn't really win on. This is because the way they started. This whole suit was by adding that and the judge also ruled that it was a breach of the contract and apple is allowed to continue to knock basically let four-night back into the not. Give them back their developer account. So while you are there blocking that and you will potentially be able to put a button in for this kind of skirting. The rules epa can't because they're not allowed back in apple store epic knew what they're doing when they broke the rules so developers win apple kind of loses epic really loses. Because they're not back on the ios store and they also had to pay some sort of a fine because of the money that they made in that process of breaching the contract. So that's super super. Te'o dr version of a all have links in the description. So you can read the full thing. It's super interesting But yet it's been going on for a long time and yeah it also seems like it's far from over anytime there's just like all right another year of like back and forth between like researching each other so that is a still developing but that's at least some development

Apple vs Epic Games Lawsuit: Apple Must Allow Other Forms of in-App Purchase
"Us judge yvonne gonzalez rogers came back with her ruling in the epic games versus apple fight on friday her decision to seen by most as a win for apple. Not an outright win. More of a. It could have been a lot worse win. Basically apple has to lead developers put buttons and links and their apps to take customers to third party. Payment options effectively says a piece from tech crunch. The judge has ruled that apple cannot prohibit developers from adding links for alternative payments beyond apple's app store based monetization remember the deal apple made with lawmakers in japan for outside payments for reader apps. Yeah this is basically that but for every app that wants to take advantage. According to the ruling apple can no longer stop developers from one including in their apps and their meta data buttons external links or other calls to action that direct customers to purchasing mechanisms in addition to end up purchasing and to communicating with customers through points of contact obtained voluntarily from customers through account registration within the app. Not what apple would have wanted but again could have been worse. The app store might have been deemed a monopoly. It was not according judge gonzales rogers while the court finds that apple enjoys considerable market share of over fifty five percent and extraordinarily high profit margins. These factors alone. Do not show antitrust conduct. Success is not illegal with that bart apple was

"Main topic for tonight guys patch eleven eighteen now right is calling this world's patch part one because the world championships are going to be on eleven nineteen so this is like preparation for it. Oh i forgot to highlight. There's an pen to kill album. Go listen to if you like metal. It's great it's actually hit or miss but it's metal so i'm still going to be like it's pretty good anyway eleven eighteen. We're gonna highlight little more than usual. But we're still gonna highlight some of the changes that either we think are going to be impactful or we want to explain because some of them are not clear at all. And i'm gonna kick it off with one. That is unclear because we had to have a discussion about it to work out. What the hell riot was even saying. This change was and that's phys the some of these changes are pretty straightforward. Fizzle does less damage just period. Ratios down its base. damages down. does less damage is passive is twice as strong against basic attacks as it was before. That's the flat damage reduction. He gets that means specifically does not serve minions doesn't say just says basically thais anything that isn't a basic attack is still at the same strength that was prior patch whether it works on minions or not. i'm going to say unconfirmed. The wicky specifically calls out that its enemy champions. And i had had heard it before. It was against enemy champions. Even though the patch itself doesn't say this again unclear patch notes. This is why we're highlighting enough. So the heart is weird is so this is supposed to be a power shift because riot list this has w base damage increased. Now they did increase. The base damage on one aspect of this is w on hit damage and that sounds great right okay. His on hit damages up. The only part that they changed is the on hit damage. After use your w and it did not kill the target and you now are on cool down. Get five seconds of bonus on image.

China Bans Under-18s From Playing Online Games for More Than an Hour a Day
"The gaming banned for minors in china. Now obviously it's a little bit more complicated but it's also not entirely unexpected this new law supersedes twenty nine thousand nine rules that allowed ninety minutes per day and forbade playing between ten pm and eight. Am with the justification back then being that well kids shouldn't be playing too many video games and they shouldn't be up late such that will affect their schooling. Which is i mean fair enough. But whether that is the rule of the state or the role of the parent is something that i think a lot of people would disagree about The twentieth nineteen measures also limited minors monthly spending on games to a maximum of fifty seven. Which appears to be unchanged. This new policy also enforces a policy requiring game companies to require players. Real names when logging it. I mean imagine. Imagine having imagine giving up your minor data protection laws in order to make sure that those miners who companies are now by law collecting information from are not playing too many video. Games that's That's an interesting double edged sword right there. The press release on state media said it is indisputable that indulging online games effects normal study life and teens physical and mental health. I could see that young. Chinese gamers are lashing out at the new rules. One objection sexual consent. It fourteen at sixty and you can go to work but you have to be eighteen to play games. This is really a joke. Know good observation as well. I don't think. I could have put it better myself now to be clear. There's nothing that the chinese government can do to prevent minor from playing a single player game completely disconnected from the internet. If there was. I'm sure they would be trying to figure out how to do that. In fact my understanding is that functionality. Like that could end up being baked into game platforms like the chinese version of steam. So that if you are playing a single player offline game Could theoretically be enforced. But my understanding is there's no actual enforcement or attempt to enforce any kind of rule like that. This is mostly focused on online

Facebook Gaming Makes Move
"Now Facebook gaming makes its move. The route they've chosen is more centered towards protecting their creators from copyright issues on their streams and they've continued to expand on that strategy as today they announced that they're expanding protections for its level of creators who are still below the partnered Facebook streamers. And that will enable them to play copy written music. Facebook has worked with record labels at universal Warner and Sony to ensure that they leave the way when it comes to making creators feel safe to stream almost any copywritten songs
China Is Limiting Kids Playing Video Games to 3 Hours a Week
"On wednesday. New rules took effect in china that severely restrict the amount of time. Young people can play video games online. Between friday and sunday gamers under eighteen years old will only be allowed to play between eight pm and nine pm the rest of the week. They won't be allowed to play at all. The regulation will also require all users to register using their real names and government issued. Id's it's of beijing's larger efforts to crack down on the growing power of tech firms and insert itself into the private lives of chinese citizens joining us to discuss how these new rules are being received. And what it means for. Gamers and gaming companies alike is the wall street. Journal's deputy china bureau chief josh chen hi josh. How are you so josh. This is the first time. China has restricted gaming for minors in two thousand nineteen limited playtime to ninety minutes on weekdays and it also limited. How much money they could spend on video games. So we're these new. Even more restrictive rules. A surprise was in wasn't a surprise last month. State media outlet published a commentary described video games as quote unquote opium of the mind and that triggered a pretty major sell off shares of gaming companies ten cent which is china's biggest gaming company. I think fell somewhere around. Eleven percent in prior to that china's leader xi jinping has taken aim at video games as a danger to the development of chinese youth. So we've suspected for a while it's something might becoming but what was surprising was just how strict and specific these restrictions were three hours is pretty miserly. Yeah these new restrictive rules. How is china planning on enforcing them in. That's a really good question. They haven't been specific about it and the way that things often work in china's at the communist party will come up with rules and then sort of leave it up to the internet companies themselves to figure out how to enforce
