Let's get into some news and I guess we'll just start. This batboy. Final fantasy seven remake continues to look like a brand new game GR- skirt. I am granting the thing I oh my God okay so this right of comes up from cocoa could talk you. It's short but then I have course like my Britishness things. I WanNa like deep dive into okay so blinking. You'll miss some of the brand new additions to file fantasy seven four the remake as showcased in this new trailer square INEX- put out an honor the Tokyo game show this week. Oh Yeah we should start with that. It's not will be starting so we're recording this on Wednesday Wednesday evening and I'm sure whether time this show goes live on Friday. There's a whole bunch of news new stuff out but for now we'll just cover. We got so among other things. There's a new boss fight with Reno Reno some sort of dark mini game a brand new member of soldier hot blonde man. If I see bike sequence with the members of avalanche cutesy epilepsy call ups President Shimmering Hologram someone's effort and Sheva both of whom are obtained way after mid garden the original version of file fantasy seven five hundred seven remake comes out on March thirty twenty twenty twenty it will include cloud wearing a dress what what is that sentence about still in the Sir that because that's all that's all my notes okay so in the original final fantasy seven there is you are with earth and so air and aries. This is the same person but I think it was just mistranslation so air is the correct name for this girl Dino. Yes okay played part of this game. I just never have I've only I played like maybe ten hours of it. Oh so you've probably got through this part. You probably don't remember it so there's a part where you and I are just chilling and you see Tepa being in carried away in a carriage and you guys really joe like what the Hell's going on with that we should go investigate so the two of you go and look like chart figure out where she is or why she's in the back of a carriage rich and you go to the honeybee which I think is just like a brothel and talk to the guy you talked to the Guy Upfront and he's like Oh yeah tvos our new girl but if you wanted to see her you know she's not the dawned on Cornell's house having an interview. This is what we do with all of our new new girls so then you're like okay. Let's go to mansion so go to don tornadoes mansion and there's a dude out front and he stops from going in and saying like cloud. You can't come in because you're like a dude but Gareth you're cute you can come in and air turns a cloud. She's like hey hey. I'll just go in and I'll see how do we make sure she's okay and clouds like you're not going in there by yourself baby girl and so now they're in this predicament like what do they do so brilliant idea is let's turn you into a woman. Yes the old yes wrestling bids crossdressing yeah yeah so then it turns into this whole mission Shane where you get to pick out address you get a wig. If you go the extra mile you can get Kiara and makeup and some other stuff and you can actually be like the chosen girl of the Dawn that evening Ning may is saying yeah yeah so it's it's I mean we knew this coming back. I mean I think he's been confirmed for even a few years now but it's just cool to see more of it because you see Don Cornell Cornell like in his bed like saying hey gimme Gimme some sugar and it's like okay. That's creepy but what's interesting. Dan is that it looks like Tika and heiress are both with cloud when he's going to get this addressed. That's kind of what eludes needs to why this is interesting is because in the original it's only Eric you have with you. You don't have teeth with you right so it would be fun if Tebas along for that ride which kind of leads me into the squad squat many game which is why this is important because you go to a gym and then you have to compete and squat competition or to hopes doesn't squats or pull ups so squats the original so the polyps is new. Oh Yeah so yeah so what do you have to compete in a squad competition in order to get the Blonde Wig Egbert cloud wears so it's a game but then you see teeth doing pull ups which makes me wonder okay is not a mini game takes place later or is like she she along for that whole lakeside quest because it can't be too much later because the entirety of this first episode is taking place in mid Gar which is interesting because it only takes like maybe the average like four to six hours to get through mid Gar in the original final fantasy seven but anyway that's real good so other things that I unnoticed okay. Obviously we got the Turks Got Reno. He's a due to the red hair. He's he's very attractive man. Have you seen the trailer yet. No I haven't okay so yeah. Just wait a minute. I'm just GONNA play it yeah. That's just game good. I love you for it so I'm not going to. I'm going to stay away from spoilers. Am One of those people who like I think people if they can experience this for the first time they should so. I won't give anything away but at school that you get to see the Turks and let's see this other there. No I have oh yeah and obviously we're getting a few different story tweaks and additional scenes which makes sense because this game is supposed to be in line what was first installation in line with the mainland final fantasy game so like thirty ish plus hours kind of been like what's been said and like I said you know you can get through bid Gar in the first four to six showers so obviously there has to be a lot more to do here so we see his teen where ariff is with Marlene and if you don't know what I'm talking about I'm sorry but those who do not I'm talking about bill appreciate it and one of the Turks comes to get her and that's going to be new footage out. We haven't seen before because in the original file fantasy seven like she's. He's just like straight up like taken and I know I'm trying to avoid spoilers but this isn't anything major but you don't get to see how that confrontation went down so I think we're kind of getting an idea of where they're going to be exploring for more stories that we may have missed out on the first time we also see some paragliding which is new it shows bigs in Jesse and maybe this will take place ace after a certain thing is destroyed and comes down which might mean some certain characters might actually live in the scalp that would be kind of cool again. We got the new blonde hot boy soldier on a bike and there we go those are like my biggest takeaways. Obviously the summons look really great you could see Sheva and she's just like this beautiful ice goddess and I love her so much and I'm just very excited. I just love me. I should that's right. I mean I do the correct way but yeah yeah about that so also it's been kind of interesting interesting. Chatter is how this whole the whole honeybee scene is going to be played out because there's some controversy Chrissy because of the way the game the way the game portrayed certain things in the original final fantasy seven so on your quest to to infiltrate the Don kronos mansion and I hope was first name is I'm not making that up. I feel like I'm just saying that like pure habit saw on quick to it's really like straight darn. ESO In order to get in their cloud. You can get a membership key so you can actually get into the Bronco and Eric is like what are you doing in clouds as well. You know I for for research. I'm really going to be a woman. I need to be able to get in here and see what I can get done and whatever when he does get his makeup done in there but there's different rooms in there that you can pick and choose if you want to like okay so you can choose a real that I'm assuming it's supposed to be translated to like the the fuck room and I say that because in the game and it's all those like little symbols like the at symbol the exclamation point you know like in a comic instead of swearing they would just use all those symbols all strung together you okay so you can go into that room and cloud goes in there and he he kind of has like a weird like a vision. He's he's countryman balls a bit and then he wakes up and then he wakes up to being rubbed and then these are the ones that are being described. It's like Rub Rub thump pound point P. O. K. squish you here then clouds ow and then he wakes up dude on top of a dude wearing steeper tight wrestling outfit kind of thing and he's like pounded on him like literally and he's like don't get so suppressed. He says don't get so depressed over thing like this happens to me all the time and then you get lingerie from the room attendees Asari Prize which goes on to like the Don Cranial mission and that was like a little weird but like it's nothing crazy right but I think where people get a little uncomfortable is when you go into the bathtub room and so cloud goes into the bathtub room and he's standing there and he's just like I said Rimsson and brothel and these like nine burly men with like these really tight like little outfits. There's same dudes that are from the gym where you have to do the squats to get the blonde wig like they come in and they're like hey we're gonna rub you down and like clean you up up and all that kind of stuff in cloud says I have no time to be messing around with you and then the watch it again today. The one of the main guy says loosen up bubby. Let's wash off our sweat and dirt together gather and then it shows cloud kind of backing up like as close as he can to like the player in terms of the camera angle and then it shows all these crowding putting him and then a screen kind of fades and then you hear the sound of his clothes being taken off and then you hear the one we'll look at that and then it pans over and then clouds back back in the bathtub but like nine of these men and its head all you can see the top of his head and the main guy asks him like how do you like this and you can either respond by saying nothing or you can stay it hurts and if you select it hurts cloud says it's too stuffy in here and the main guy says oh you'll get used to it. Try counting to ten and so then clouds counts to ten and meanwhile this guy is like saying kind of creepy stuff to him. He gets to ten and the guys like why don't you stick around and play. Daddy is so lonely and then he like leaves so I don't know if you've heard about the honeybee store controversy in how can we played out but that's more or less. It sounds like there's just some hints of nonconsensual will rubbing shirt. Obviously this game came out in the nineties. Things were just a little different in terms of like what's appropriate. What's not to make light of you know in terms of culture pop culture and stuff like this but anyway I kind of went on a tangent but that is like I was like this is a lot to digest? This is like what people are talking talking about like how the crosshairs house. It's going to lead to the honeybee seen anyway. I know down the thing but that's okay but that's the thing that people are talking about and I apologize. Guys got it all right now. I know now stories so boring but fine do the next to you get one okay that is fine apple arcade release date price games at everything else you D to know this is from tech radar so as you may know apple had their event this week and it talked about a lot of shit there was apple watch garbage if you like they're great but there was a lot of light. There's a ah one of those things also apple arcade so the gaming subscription service will release on September nineteenth and costs four dollars us and ninety nine cents U s that is of course different pricing for other regions but the apple arcade subscription service for Games is just the latest sign of Apple Getting on the Gaming Bandwagon with a curated list of exclusive titles also come to your iphones IPADS macbook computers and even Apple TV at an affordable monthly cost. It's apple take on the whole net flicks for gaming approach tying gamers into a monthly subscription that gives of access to top quality video game adventures that aren't available anywhere else. Apple Arcane has a good heritage behind it was arguably the first company to take mobile gaming seriously and make it financially viable and as a result. It's now got the backing of some of the most important names in mobile game development. It's also great news for owners who have always played second fiddle to gamers when it comes to finding topnotch gaming experiences says on their platform Apple Arcade boasts over one hundred unique in the story it says read indie exclusive to Apple's devices including beneath a steel sky a remake of the classic adventure game with art by Watchmen Comic Book Legend Neil Gibbons and in addition. The collection of cames games available is set to be cured by experts and we'll be updated monthly and will include original releases from renowned creators hero Nobutaka Gucci. I'm so sorry a Ah Ken Wong will write anymore so I personally obviously a huge game. I played a few things on my phone like Florence and Lego Tower but this is definitely one of those subscription services. I will be opting out of not bothering sorry. That's not what I was expected really. Okay 'cause you're like this is one of the service I will be a good deal right like five dollars and you get like these reoccurring during games deal if not going to blame them if you're not gonNA play it no no as you are. I'm looking at this list of developers to our support pledge and you got like Sega devolved digital. Ross Fury Game Lofts in apprentice in there. I think they were Yep yeah. They have their one game Konami. Yes there's a lot of good. It all looks very interesting but I just know my set and that's not for me Capcom Screen TV softball no same here. I'm right with you. I think this is awesome. It seems like good bang for your buck especially since you can share among your family members like that's real. This is what this is. What ticks me off? This is what grinds Mike years baby girl. It was talking about this with Fred. We were both commiserating about the fact that they're always like with any of these subscription services right there like you can share it with your freely and I'm like it's just me I am my family. This is all our gut. Where's my cheaper price because I can't split the cost between the people and justify it like if I had four people in my family? Oh my God a dollar person amazing. It's just me I have a single person tax and I don't appreciate it. I I mean listen Sam. I'm your family and I'm not blood related. We you and I enjoy a family plan and could on your cell phone players enjoyment Nintendo's switch membership yeah. Actually I do have a family planning though sorry okay wow what a tease I know I know it sounded again. I realized I had nothing to offer you just like every other man in my life. I love you like this. Is I mean I'm sure sure they're gonna be I mean I looked at some of the Games. They looked fine but like Sammer. It's just doesn't do it for me if I have my phone. Chances are reading about video game news or I'm looking at some stupid stupid. Article and buzzfeed are checking my email. I just don't play Games on my phone. Yeah actually there is a few games that I play in a what's it called. I talked about got it on a show. Maybe last year and I can never say the name of it. hold on. I gotTA pull it up. It's it's like it's supposed to look like a normal last phone. It's it's basically you're finding a phone. Ashtrays yeah called the loss phone. I thought yeah there's a a normal loss phone in like another loss but the one I'm talking about particular and I could never say it last time. Similar KARA SIT S IONA CA-CAR S. I M. U. L. A. SIMILAR LA fuck. I don't say it anyway. There's a new one coming out and these ones are fun because it's mostly about the phones being possessed and like people are dead and it's my kind of thing. Oh yeah that shit that's kind of games. I like to play on my phone but and he'll yeah good for you. Guys do a thing get. If you want it yes but not for us the right girl right and are you the next one and I can just grunt. You'll be grunting a lot because guess what everybody eighty project resistance revealed as team based resident evil game this comes to us from Polygon so project resistance has been revealed ahead of Tokyo game show as a quote brand new teammate survival horror experience. Perhaps similar to resident evil outbreak. The game looks like a four player cooperative game using online multiplayer and features the variety of characters going against a robot man who seems to be in control and the relevant looks similar to Mr X. Resident Evil too but we can't really be sure if it's him or not yet well being teased. The new game was dubbed Project Resistance though it seems like the game will be keeping this title fans will be able to watch game play at the Camp Capcom boost during Tokyo game show at at times Japanese residents will get to go hands on with the game but only if they've registered advanced project resumes will be released a playstation four windows PC and xbox this one at an undetermined time apparently this is. I wish that we got to get more information about this game before we recorded the show but we have not heard anything else else. We've seen the trailer so I'm GonNa break down the trailer and I won't talk as long as Jerry about fantasy seven. I promise it does it really does look like Mister. X It yeah because it is okay. Why did the article is like? We're not sure but I'm looking. I literally just looking at the thumbnail. I played not enough resident evil and I'm looking at it. IS THAT NOT MR ex- 'cause it looks exactly like him. Yeah I don't the robot man I think I think personally they may have just been a little confused because my my understanding my belief is that the person in the control control room is like a real person but he just puts on these like mechanical gloves which then allows him to control Mr X. Okay so the trailer for those of you haven't seen it. It's only the accident no okay okay yeah yeah so the trailers only like a minute half but it opens up an dude this this is the mystery man he walks into a control room. There's a billion monitors and like VCR looking tech and stuff so you assume it's kind of like probably set in the nineties my assumption anyway big control room and I was trying to sleuthing and I'm like looking on the Monitor to see you know like where are they and one of the areas did look like the parking garage from resident evil to she remake couldn't be totally sure just that out there so then he says Downing Pushes the whole bunch of buns and then you see the select five minute mission timer start clicking down or ticking down and then it shifts to the laboratory where you see people walking through looking all cautious like cautious Kelly and one guy has shotgun and one girl has like it looks like a wooden plank of nails sales on it so variety of melee weapons and then the dude starts flipping switches and we start slipping switches as they're walking areas different enemies come out so the first wave of enemies you get like eight or nine typical slow shambling zombies and if you look real close our favorite timer you understand us but our favorite resident evil two girl she's wearing a pink take top oppa the Jean shorts she makes a cameo and noticed her and I thought that was really cool so she's in there and then he starts flipping switches and then he unleashes a liquor and then once the liquors dead did he that's when he puts on like these gloves and then then it pans over to Mr X. who lifts his head up and then eyes start glowing red and then the guy's gloves start glowing join red so then you assume okay this guy is controlling mister x which isn't out of the rental possibilities all these things have been created you know with viruses and other weird things so sure why not why not Mr exit the tyrant and so there are a lot of tyrants so there's not just like Mr Exeter hearts but tyrants grants are aplenty tyrants like a specific thing in this universe or do you just mean yeah. It's it's in particular bio up new like liquor. It's like its own certain thing. I've got to think of it like that yeah so the question is what kind kind of game is this I like to I would like to think am I perfect Brit world. It's disappear co OP game but there is reason to think obviously that this could be a four V one. Oh yeah that would make sense yeah yeah and I. I hope it's not I mean. I just never really been unless I can play with style. I don't like plain in people especially you don't even like playing co op so the only person you're going to play this with this Jason Well Nia. I mean probably but like if I have have to play against with you. I guess we'll play with you. Don't even tonight at this point now. It's so I could it could go either way. I could see it being a forty one. I I would like to think it's just a pure co op shooter where you go throughout specific areas of raccoon city 'cause what the dude is wearing a raccoon city. Things have varsity jacket which is one of the things end end outbreak game so I like to think maybe post outbreak in resident evil two. It would be cool if we could get some stories in this that would be cannon this kind of show us what what that outbreak was like few weeks after it happens in raccoon city before everything gets blended smithereens but yeah we'll just have to see there's just we'll just have to it would be cool if that was whisker in that's like one of the old the main bodies of like the first five or five or six games you want to count like are easier and could and I'm getting back to find out what's what the sad part is. Obviously we're recording this on Wednesday and the show starts tomorrow so so we will probably have a much better idea of what this game is but if you google it right now I'm sure you'll find new information on exactly what project resistances live anywhere yet. It's cool. I think it's I think it's great didn't Capcom in a good position right now where they can kind of test not test their wings spread other wings there you go spray writings and try to not fall to their deaths. Please don't I'll be very sad. Killing Monster Hunter obviously double my credit really good Rosen evils in a really good spot so understand why people under nervous about nervous about this but it's you know we're going to get a we're still going to get our three remake. This is just them trying something new and if it works for them sweet if not they'll know about it right. This one's fucking crazy all right Nintendo teases switch peripheral focused on physical exercise. Have you seen this trailer. I I clicked on it before the show. Okay okay so this comes from Games Industry Dot Biz Nintendo. Oh has teased a new peripheral for its switch console which seems to amplify and extend its motion control functions yesterday Nintendo released video that shows the new controller and action the peripheral Israel is split into two parts a wheel and strap each of which can house enjoy con controller the video depicts people in various countries using the controllers with the wheel gripped in the in the hands and the strap attached to the by many of these activities involve physical exercise running stretching aerobics and adopting yoga like positions Nintendo will reveal more details on September Twelfth Aka Tomorrow for us but very yesterday for you every home side of this the worst instead it was always the worst this but the very fact that the name imprecise nature of the controller were not included is significant in itself a teaser preceding a full announcements tactic often employed with products considered to be a major launch the physical exercise depicted in the videos also familiar territory for Nintendo the most obvious example being we fit which was a huge hit back in two thousand and eight since then the Japanese company has made frequent references interest in promoting. I need help and quality of life through its product visually. If any of you have ever done pilates before the wheel is a pilates wheel almost exactly what it is uh-huh. I've used them before so it was into it when I watched it. I was like that's just the pilates wheel but like like with a thing in your controller so just to see how much this bad boy is yeah yeah and it reminds me of just all of the weird things intendo has done and it's like what is the world a better place. Britney are let people be fits yet and hey you know what the we fit the balance board. That was the first hour they're going to kill uh which fit oh my God the switch. It sounds fun switch fit. I like it but now the balance was the first time I ever did yoga and I learned about it and so actually not Jay scenario like twenty minutes of Yoga Day because we very we need to see we're not flexible at all so she's like naming off all these pose it like oh I learned that and and we are we fit yoga like six years ago thirteen years ago holy shit so speaking other weird things than Tun does doing they have. That's deep tracker so summer. This news broke. I think when we were in London so I think we I I kind of missed. It and I didn't really hear a lot about it but it's called Pokemon sleep and you know what I saw right because I was I made a jet lag. Joke like can poke in monthly helped me get to sleep right now yeah yes. I remember that joke. That was a good job. Samia the vest it uses. Is this pokemon go plus plus which is what it's called and what it does is it monitors user sleep patterns rewards them for time spent sleeping quote. The concept of this game is for players to look forward to waking up every morning so my God that's so sad. I know this mission statement I ever heard I know that's the CEO of the company on one hand. I'm like Oh man other hand like hey. If it works for someone hey I know but like and then they twenty fourteen they had that quality of life platform they announced which is probably died. I think it's actually been rumored that has been dead for a while but what it was it was the sensor that monitored analyze you all you slept and it was just something you would stick like next to US radio waves they would check out your heart rate respiration fatigue and it just would like basically scope you out all throughout the night and even partnered with manufacturer who specializes in medical equipment and everything but clearly that fell through and then never forget get the we censor that never became a thing oh yeah it was just like literally a heart monitor clip yeah like you said I appreciate. They're trying to do good. Thanks for the world. She's like cool this silly I mean I will. I don't need this but other people. If this gets you interested in fitness cool makes it seem approachable cool yeah you do. That's right all right. This is called switch fit if it does it's not called Switzerland. I'm going to be upset. Are you going to boycott. I mean I'm going to boycott it anyway because I don't need it but you know I know Oh. This is your such a kind soul.

It's not too out of live and twenty eighteen cancelled fancy loves the gaming twitter account called. KFC Gaming the social media account is all over the place hurling music video clips all across debt. Oh my God this. This is the story of this week I agree. I think this is my favorite story. You've ever read I love you Colonel Sanders and finger licking good. I mean it's ridiculous and I appreciate that they are just I don't I don't love it. They ripped off for him. Daddy's art style but I them props for knowing that dream. Daddy was popular and for them trying to imitate but they should give some licensing question have you have you seen Colonel Sanders this young yes. Oh of course yeah okay okay. Would you hit it. Yeah really one thousand percent not really I think I would I would make him shaved the goatee part. If I with the mustache yeah he would have to do something so he doesn't look like himself because I can't see I'm not okay. I'm not trying to sound like an asshole. I'm kind of repulsed by Colonel Sanders as you should be. He pushes gross greasy chicken on everybody and this is the has anything to do with the physical appearance of them. It's just it's weird that you have this like dude who was like a cartoon character. Originally I don't know as origins now. He's like a real human human and now apparently I didn't date him and it's just too weird for me and I I'll end up playing. I mean this is to anime style for me to like. Get caught up on what you just said. I'm just like hot anime. Boy Only thing I would do is shave your chin hair because it looks weird. I mean that's what Colonel Colonel Sanders facial hair does look like but to me. I'm like it'd be much hotter if he just had the mustache and it would be better because in my opinion would be like will young Colonel Sanders exactly goatee part yet like he just had had the mustache and then later he got older he decided to for whatever reason grow this disgusting thing on his mind but yeah so are you. Are you goatee or the mustache team goateed if you want more this for this image depends on the person everyone's 'cause like sometimes the goatee is good if you have to like high level Russian but the for this guy in particular that I'm looking at on the Internet this Colonel Sanders lose the goatee. Keep the mustache some Sam looking kind of lose lose. I'm looking at it. Why don't you shave off then? He might look to you know because they've looked to you. I think the moustaches fine with him back back. I don't mind it at all. That is not a not a barrier for entry the mustache to me. It reminds me too much of old colonel. Colonel Sanders is where rights too much of it. I lost that then it would look like a young dude with a moustache. Maybe just shaved it all off. Though Oh look twelve I'm not into that. I'm not either but it'd be better than I would not be better better depicting adults as young children and is never a good thing. It's a very creepy thing I'm just saying in this case. I think you could shave off the facial hair and he would look at he would look eighteen nineteen and it would be okay. No you wouldn't be running a frigging culinary institute at Eighteen or nineteen. Hey Man I'm sure some people have I'm sure you're yes in the history of the world perhaps but are you saying you don't believe in Colonel Sanders. It's one of those shows as did you think of like grandma got run over by a reindeer lake. If you believe girdles enters but that's where we grab all we believe I don't know like like you can say you don't believe in Santa but you can say you don't believe in Colonel Sanders Okay and the the other saving grace. This anime character of Colonel Sanders is the little like black Bowtie doesn't look like his body you know. Have you seen those beams where it's like that looks like the Black Bowtie. It's just a big head on a big none of small body not seeing that no oh yeah it's weird weirds me out all right well. I think we've detected poor Colonel Sanders and fucking oh no looking at the logo and I see it I see it. It was released yeah I can't. I can't see that how that's unfortunate. I think maybe if his hair was white and he shaved something. Oh I like that the Harris White especially especially because the art style and because it's super animated I love it and that's great. It's nothing to yeah. It's nothing dude the direction it's just him I. I just can't think of old dude on the commercials again. I'm sure you're going to be old onto one day. God Sammer No. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA get in Jacksonville input test tubes and I'm going to be preserved forever and ever and it's GonNa be great and I'll come aww banks Malians all right ladies and gentlemen. It's it's time to move on so points to end this thing and we'll be back with some hands on impressions like years of war five I and other things that haven't read yes. We'll be right back. Welcome Back Ladies and gentlemen to segment of the what's good Games podcast retail you what we've been getting our grubby hands on number doesn't have grabbed my hands clean the are you always have beautiful manicured nails and this is Joe Polish off that they are bear. That's good I I need to get my nails done because their to their objects their weapons weapons of mass destruction right now because there are too long and we are not gonNA talk about our hands anymore okay so we have been playing video games so I've been playing gears five. I finished Blair. Ah finished gears five at finish Blair witch. I've been playing deadly. Premonition is short. It's like yeah like maybe five hours Oh yeah and a little bit of creature in the world but always talk about that until Andreas back because she has been playing. I think she finished it. I think she did good overachiever all right so I married well. You've playing gears I have but I started that because so I got this beautiful care packages. I believe you did as well well so thank you thank you to xbox sending us over you know obviously codes for the game and then they step us like consoles and controllers and all sorts of lovely things that I was not expecting leasing so it was it was super nice but I was waiting to install the new xbox before downloading the game and I had already started playing nights. Listen bike so I kind of put it off until I finish that but I got into gear last night. I'm obviously not super far into it but I just started act two. I'm like done with chapter one of two and although this may be a premature thing to say I'm hoping you will confirm or deny for me Brittany. I feel like this is feeling good. I I feel this feels more to me like the og gears did I did not like for the record I did not like yours for I did not finish cures for I felt it was a little boring boring. I didn't enjoy the level design. I didn't enjoy the set piece for the most part felt it miss it was missing something for me and I think a lot of that was variety and I hate to say it like soul soul or something. Whatever that intangible thing is yea? You sometimes are missing. That's what yours for was for me now. I know exactly what you're talking about. I think that's part of the reason why a lot of GOP Jeez these days they try to recreate cree of old like they're great but it's got a city like Tokyo. RPG factory they try to remake gop but they lacked certain something they're good Games. They just lack that fine technical game exactly a yeah like for me I just I don't know something about it was not not clicking didn't like it to finish it and it even has like one of the loves of my life Laura Bailey sorry. I really liked the character kate so to me that is what signifying how I have felt about gears before and so I'm very excited that now I am super into what's happening here sure and also gorgeous like what a walking they dave built some beautiful pieces for you to explore the lighting is par perf like it's just so so crisp and beautiful. It's like an uncharted game and some parts of it. It's just so so pretty and I lost my train of thought. So you pick something up. Okay I got you girl. It's currently sitting on the eighty five on metacritic so yeah people are people are digging it. So have you played all the other Aguirre's game steiner have finished gears one gears to I finished like three quarters of gears three the only reason I didn't finish that one was because of this is not a dig at you but a different friend not throwing shaded Britney different friends they would play with me while I was waiting for them and waiting for them away for them and then and then it happened just never happened. I never finished. I don't even promise anymore you you were fine yeah. I already know better until like count on you for that. Gears four didn't play because I wasn't enjoying it okay. That's totally fair. I've also played all of them. Including judgment so I like me some gear as you know after he spent after your five six games into the series of you include judgment you kind of have a specific bought an expectation from these games. I agree with timer that to neatest one feels like it takes everything from niggers series and just makes it better. There are a few things that I'm not sure about and I'll talk with you. Bottom up to it but okay so we'll keep spoiler free as well obviously so we will not spoil anything for you. Never you fear like Samra said thanks again to xbox in the Coalition for providing does those amazing care packages and the codes. I believe the game comes out on the sixteenth for everyone but right now if you had game pass ultimate I think it's out yet yeah out for a while right. Okay so the story of yours five picks up after gears of war for that said I think you can just hop into gears five you might be here's the thing I played all the gears. Here's games and I'm still a little confused so yeah I mean basically like big bad bugs came and back to Earth and there's this big weapon called the hammer of dawn that you're trying to like bring back so he can kill everything they hammer abs on is essentially a mega power laser by satellite yes but you need the satellites. It's to coordinate where the hammer of dot actually goes so and it's been a thing since you know the beginning right hammer gone so good though one thing that's interesting to me and so I didn't finish gears for but in gears five in acts one it basically recaps a lot of what happens in gears for or that was important and most of it. I've seen so like the fact that I didn't finish that game and I recognized all those countries I was like did nothing happened in the last part of this. I was so confused what it was yeah no yeah that's a good point. I forgot that they do. They do recap it so you can jump right into this this when you do not need to play gears for they will sort of loosely set up exactly what happens and yeah you'll be fine would worry too much about it. The bad guys you shoot them. Big Bugs getting even call them sometimes so yeah. I've always been a linear game in the story. Progresses is yes you do the levels. Will you have some dialogue you go to the next area of Rinse Wash repeat the writing and these images so beautiful facial animations. They are just like oh very very good. I was playing Jason. I played with Jason this whole game and he made the comment that he thought these were the best facial animations he's seen in a game. I think God out of wars better but still like these are really good yeah. We're not going to say that they're the best out of anything because I haven't sat down and like aired eared but they're very very good and even when they go back to show you the gears for cut scenes you can see how far they've come graphic which is kind of Nice. I thought totally so it's beautiful and you know it's good when you can just look at character and there's like a little twitch in their eyebrow or something as a thousand words so it's it's beautiful so in this game the something that's I don't remember this was in gears for over was I don't remember this many but there are a few open areas this time around and baby during the last one but I can't remember because that game came out years ago and I don't have that good of a memory but there's two for example. There's two towns and one of them was rather large and if you want to like walk around and check out everything and there's things to collect and conversations to listen in on one appears is actually one of the towns and that's pretty you find when you hear her talking and then there's the obvious open world mini open world sandbox. Whatever you WANNA call it areas that you explore on indistinct called a skiff and it's think of it like a jet ski but not like a very big long modified jet ski thing anyway anyway you could use that and you can traverse around the world the areas as well and by doing so you can find side quests and decide closer fund because obviously reward you you upgrades for your new Buddy Jack? He'll talk about in a second but it's great because it gives kind of that moment of rest for the characters were there. You're in something a little different where they can kind of have those dialogues that want to have in the in the regular campaign skelly overdoing this thing that said the side quests are all will shoot me waves of enemies you find thing of course but it is nice to kind of take them away from that main campaign and have them engage in dialogue that you went to hear otherwise like silly Cork Sui conversations so that's nice to put like those parts are good but I feel like gears greats is when it is kind of that okay linear. Let's go action action action dialogue. Maybe have like a five ten minute moment where you have some like Loki downtime where you're just exploring but then you throw you back in action. So have you come across any of those areas yet so the first one yeah the beginning of two is where you will find a lot of Pierce's character character and so I've heard her. It was cool but yeah I think granted again. I'm super early into this game but I way have enjoyed the pacing of it so much more than I enjoyed gears force pacing because even though yes what you do for the majority of this game is shoot things the cover shooter. What else are you going to do? I've found like they've been able to break it up so far in such a way where it doesn't just feel like walk into a room get get behind cover shoot walk down a hall right behind cover shoot it they didn't do that which I actually felt like gears for was at some some points and that was part of what was really frustrating me. I just felt really bored of it but they've really played around. Even they've had some fun with it. Which obviously I'm not going to tell you anything that happens but some of the missions are you can tell that the design team had fun figuring out the set piece battle and like how it would play out and they also have a lot of fun with the characters and the way that they are interacting with each other which makes everything so much better so much more interesting so much? It's more fun to breathe life into the game just the way that they all are bouncing off of each other and like there was just a twist that I hit and now I'm like Oh my God what's happening so so they're really coming to together as a really good story. My words are Oh. You don't like it's all coming together to be like Oh. This is a studio that Ken tell really interesting stories so I look forward to seeing where the rest of this campaign goes yeah and that's. I'm glad you brought that up because it's it's so true. There's hardly any there's not a lot of moments of silence and in good way. It's not like all those annoying banter back and forth but there's enough to always keep you engaged in the writing is so good that even the few sentence you get every year and every now and again. It's enough to tell you a lot. What about the characters and that you really understand like what they're going for like what their Mo is and I feel like no matter what we whatever we were doing? They would comment on it which is so so damn nice because that's one of my biggest pet peeves and gaming when something really cool happens but no one has anything to say about it like no this is the thing you're like. Ah Yeah so speaking of characters. Jack is the new buddy rose walk. New robot friend originally is dave the Dave's the other day and so you jack and what he does to combat is really fun so he has these abilities that you find oh components I think is what the name Lamar throughout the levels yeah and you collect them and then you can use to upgrade Jackie has like a skill tree of sorts of sorts and as side missions. I was mentioning gene earlier. You'd like you go explore those defined awesome upgrades for him and that's kind of like the whole point of doing though cyclists and I'm pausing because my computer just beeped at me. Are you there. I'm still here okay. Everyone's still here's everything still recording. I know yeah no beeping okay. We are good anyway so yeah like I was saying what he does is he has he's fun abilities. You can use in combat and have like a little bit of a cool down but they the really quick so the main ones I used was shocked traps which is really convenient. When you have a whole bunch people like running out you you just set him on the ground and it'll take electrify them sometimes even explode them and it's really good at slowing down the big guys like the wardens and whatnot and there's awesome ability that I just got that allows you to confuse enemies and it turns them on their own allies? ooh Can you talk about the big ones yeah target you can't target like the word ends and stuff like that but you can target almost anything else that you can't target the science but you can target target the bashes or sort of a little robots robots that shield them. It's it's at such a fun little twist to the combat and man the combat is super super intense excited saying it's it's a cover shooter but I think gears is mostly known for its amazing combat and it's so much fun and it's so intense I get three battles in particular where Jason I probably he died like ten times and it was a thing where it's like okay. What are we doing wrong and we figure it out different strategies? We figured out what worked what didn't it but it it always felt really rewarding and only one of them felt unnecessarily punishing but we played on intermediate so it wasn't you know we didn't have a hard time or anything like that but it's just the intensity of the battle is that they the coalition is really struck awesome balance of feeling like overwhelmed but it's not impossible to do yeah yeah. I'm also playing on intermediate so far. I haven't run into any too much trouble. I've been down a couple of times with a it will just pick me back up and yeah so so so far. It's fine again. I've met a few more acts Toco but I am excited like so. I actually got up earlier this morning and played before I had to go to work and then I was slightly late to work because I wanted to keep playing. I just WanNa play gears now something else. He brought up earlier that I also want to say it's just the level design in this game is just so amazing. There's one part in a game where you're in a kitchen and I was just marveling at it. Jason Thought I was really nerdy for this but I am you bad bro. It's just the fact that someone built like the most intricate kitchen for like a real that you're gonNA that. Most players are just going to run through in like three we seconds and never come back again but if you just stop and look around and look at the attention to detail this kitchen has fucking incredible and it's like whoa like someone took all all this time to build this even though players is probably gonNA run through it hardly ever take the time to look at it. Yeah I've been taking my time through all of the levels and I look around because I'm also looking for components opponents for the robot and I also actually had a similar thought Britain. I was like you know I feel like probably the majority of players just run through to the next subjective. I must take my time gonna like walk around. I'm GONNA see what they've put here and see what they tell stories obviously through what what is left around the world and like there's one part where you're in this area actually. I can't believe whatever it's just interesting the way like oh just setting up up some suitcases or something else can can show you what was going on there right before you came in and so if you are if you go low to play this game which I would suggest you do because you can do it with game pass. Just take your time with that like go through the levels. Take a look around and number one because you'll get components which is always helpful and then number two appreciate kind of what people taken the time to build the school. Yeah I know exactly the area you're talking about and that was also my thought to you and it's amazing when you look around you really digest what story is being told through the level design itself off. Your Shits fucked yeah his dark and twisted. This is a you appreciate the Banter Times two characters have because if you think about what's going on in this world of gears did it's really not good. Here's a war is definitely one of those and I don't. I don't take this lightly because I don't think suicide is the thing you should say Liley but this is a game and if I lived in this world I would kill myself one hundred percent like there's no way I want those leach things coming after me. I don't want any of these horrid things coming after like no this terrible. I don't think I could do it. I don't think I have the strength or resolve to make it through a world like this. It's yes I'm happy UPI so that too because it's I mean I don't want you to do that. I will never happening out. We're actually we'll never be in gears of words World Sarah. We'll that'll never gets here. They'll never happened but yeah. I think this is the first game in the series where it's like you know things you're screwed up but I think in all video games are screwed up but this is the first time in gears for I've kind of stopped and looked around and I guess not really ever realized how bad things were and that's just again like the level of Zion and of course we don't there's collectibles where you can collect pamphlets documents another the thing that little box stories and whatnot as well but yeah I mean I just I just really enjoyed my time with it and I think it's it deserves all the praise. It's getting I did have some connection issues the weekend after launch obviously but it's Kinda like what game doesn't have those issues like. I'm trying to play torchlight to you right now and I just can't because it just keeps keeps booting us so that was kind of frustrating and there was some bugs was like infinite checkpoint save and whatnot but I would say like the only thing about it. I'm still not entirely early. Sure how I feel about it. Are The open world ish type areas. I enjoyed them and I had fun with them. I just don't know if they were necessary and I I remember mostly optional yeah. It's all optional. You know the size of totally optional but you have to like get on the skiff and drive from point A. to Point B. and maybe if you I do that. It's not as intrusive. I don't. That's the right word but you know me. I wanted the triumphs thank you. I wanted to try out all of the side. Quests and I did all but maybe maybe to at the very which I knew it would have got me another Jack Upgrade Component as like this is fun and it's it's cool but I think again like I was saying earlier. I think we're gears. It's really shines is when you are in like those beautifully paced for the game forces you to go its pays yeah 'cause open world. The tricky part of Oakland role has always been pacing and storytelling storytelling because you can't dictate what the player does you just kind of like well hurry go. I guess I don't know literally where you're going to go. You could go anywhere and I have to make this makes sense but so yeah I haven't gotten to that part yet so I but I imagine I will likely err on the side of last aside quest because simply I find I get fatigued out of shooters relatively quickly and unless I'm playing co op and I'm not playing with anybody right now so it's just like well. I'll probably skip most of those died missions and just go through the story because so far the story missions have been very well paced and I've really enjoyed toward them yeah. It's great and characters are Great Dulles. One of my new husband does eggshells coup delco yeah and you know the game really does set you up for quite the intense ending so it's good it's really good and I would definitely recommend checking it out. If you know it sounds like your kind of thing so little props to the coalition you did great job great fantastic game a game. I will never play Blair witch. Yeah Okay Yeah so Blair witch and thank you for the codes as well for this so employees obviously Blair witch has been around since like the ninety S. I think it's one of the first one came out. Was the mid nineties or why are you asking me. I have no idea I'm trying to think of what the player was project. I came. I don't remember I was hugging and you get one. Let me the Blair witch project movie came out in Nineteen Ninety nine yeah and it's detain then then then is that a song not exact cadence but guess yeah so the movie release nineteen was supposed to take place as the nineteen ninety-four and the creepy. There's been a few different Blair. Witch is like since then but the creeping about the Blair witch is it's this area of woods and I play this game like a week and a half ago so memories aren't totally pristine but I've seen the movies anyways area of woods and there's some weird shit going on and there's like all the Blair witch. She's coming to get you but burn. The creepy thing about this lord of whatever is that. You don't really get answers if you've watched the first movie you don't really quite understand what happened happened or why and movies don't end on a happy note like the thing is never discovered or killed or anything like that so I was kind of expecting so then what are the movies. Is this just like wandering around like something killed me an end of the movie I mean that's usually how most movies and is like you think you've solved the problem and you think you're fine the new twist but in the first movie for example you know it just ends with someone finding their friends staring in a corner and then Oh my God and what are you doing and then the camera gets knocked away and then everyone said and then the movie and then it ends and the idea is this is found footage and everyone's like Oh my God what the heck happened Sunday. These poor college students goodness. That's they went into the woods. That's the problem they ought Lord. Don't go anywhere. Stay in your dorm room. Stay on campus Sunday GonNa say reports of people went out in the woods and this is going back to kind of the the movie people been missing in the woods or in thing where things have happened happen so these kids go out and they go camping and they wake up in the here like weird screaming in the ways to hear sounds they wake up. They're walking literal circles. They don't know how any something's messing with them and you'd never really quite get like the closer so which of the Blair on the Blair witch game developed by Bluer so again you bluer further the review code it. I was kind of expecting something more along that line of the game. It's spooky. It has its moments where like you know you're GonNa Pitch Black. All you have is your flashlight and you have your dog which is like a really good boy your dog. You have a dog in the know. Is the dog okay. I mean I can't remember the dog's name bullet. I will not spoil anything about the dog okay but I never playing this game. I don't care but yes obviously if you're listening and in her excited don't you have yeah so it's you. You're okay so you're a you're dude and you're going to the woods you have your dog bullet and we're going to try to find this dismissing dismissing kid so you go out into the woods just unbelievable and you so you go research. Can there's already like a search effort underway and you just go with your dog. You recently like you don't have relationship issues and you're thinking this is going to be good for me so you've got a nice Johnson. The Woods Woods. We'll all of our relationship issues going to die out here. It's fucking terrible double so you get out there and then like sure shit like you know kind of weird. Things are happening you know Y- Since the game takes place in the mid nineties while I believe and I say that because the phone that he carries with him and it's access year your Ui for everything it's an old like Nokia it's where it has some games on it and it has like the greenback screen green. That's like all lit up and those who are young probably are like what the heck are these kids. What are we talking about? That was the way the phones back at mcdavid old cell phones. Yeah battery lasted lasted for four days the best it was the best battery does last excrete of you know you go in there with your flashlight your cellphone some dog treats your wallet and a walkie talkie and you don't have any food for yourself now. I don't know this man stupid stupid great so I don't know what the standard is. GonNa have to eat dog treats and of course you ever Cam quarter will like obviously those kind of people guy's name is Ellis. He goes into the woods and you know then weird things. Start happening to them and I'm like okay like this is Kinda freaky. I can see this in the dog is great. You can tell it to go search but you can have a stay by your side. You can have it stay you. Can you can pet the dog like don't some the poor pauper out to search. He sees his Hugh at all times. I know four puppy the the the thing about it that kind of turn me off is the game more tells a personal story of the main character Ellis this and it seems more like he's struggling with his personal. PTSD because of the woods around him and while it is a very interesting story. I don't know if his story was right for the Blair witch game I when I think of what the Blair witch story and more of this guy's story right exactly and ah some people some people thought that was the most interesting part of the game but I think what I had kinda had everybody has the answers I know I think you're right. I'm someone like twisted. It messed up. I just wanted to go into the woods. I WANNA get fucked with. I don't want to know why I just wanted to quote for ages because Bluebird team is so oh good you know layers and layers if you're too observation like they're so good at these kind of games and I love them so much and the this is a fine game issues not kind of what I had wanted or expected from it but I will say you know in the Final Act while it does drag on a little long. That's really where I think it shined and really were the talents bluer stood out because you are in this area and you have your camcorder and you're like Oh. My God like this does feel like something that would have happened in the movie and that's when I found myself enjoying it the most there there are some weird design choices. You know there's one thing where you literally walk in a circle for like a few minutes if for no real reason you don't understand why you're doing it and it's weird. It's hard to explain without spoiling anything but it's just some of the things I'm like. Why would you do that and the combat just feels like it wasn't necessary to combat is essentially you point in your flashlight at these like would monsters who are trying to come after you and the only way you know where they're at is if your dog like if bullets like barking at them and then you kind of aimed your flashlight or the dog is barking and then you catch them then big bright flash goes off and then you do like three times and it's just an feel necessary? Sorry just wanted to die in the woods. I know I mean yes. Yeah I mean I I wouldn't have minded died in the woods. If it was like a weird like Oh my God and then you like piece it all altogether any he'll yeah and there's multiple endings but the way did you look up the multiple innings after I finished the game because 'cause I wasn't happy and they were any of them satisfying to would you like. I wish I would've had that one. No I mean the one I had. I think was fine but there's tap capital of fine. The weird thing is to get if okay if you're going to go into this game and you. I don't know if you'd WanNa play it twice and you want to try. GotTa get like the better and Dean I would. If you WANNA consider a better ending I would say like just look it up because there's some things that the game really encourages you to do. It's like hey here's this thing right in front of you this. Here's a button prompts. You should do this and not do a once. You've ruined all chances and has happens within the first like I don't know like ten ten fifteen minutes of the game brierley shock when like the few killing dooms yeah and it's stuff that you win it it doesn't you would never even think about it. It's yard so anyway like Saul Mind Games. This is the mind gave you wanted this. I guess this really really been hammer yeah. I know it's definitely spookiest definitely creepy. I don't think the personal story needed to be told in this game. I think it would have been better saved for different Kinda game. I think Blair witch what comes along with that is a certain set of expectations but I mean yeah it's INDISP- UC things in us are scared of being in the woods and there's there's a puzzles in there that are like why are these admitting here. I don't know anyway I still live a game and not to walk necessarily later. I guess that's the thing they don't you don't need to maybe they don't look it well. I Love Bluer team but I don't think it was the right design choice fair enough but that's just my opinion but still there are great studio and you should support them all right Sandra. What's this one thousand bikes? You don't know about nights and bikes. I don't okay through this is from our good friends at double fine. Also thank you for the code so I love a lot of things that double fine does because they're cute and quirky and I think aesthetics of them always yeah nice and bikes aesthetically reminds me very much of like a costume quest sort of I'm not not for one for one by any means but just generally I guess and so it's the story of two girls girls who are relatively young I don't they don't really say exactly how young they are and I'm terrible with children and guess and agents so I'm not I gotta try but it's a story of friendship. Basically between these girls were going out on adventures together and they pretend to be like a centrally and the bikes are like their steeds and it's a really fun little game. It's the there is combat so it's not just like running around around. It's not walking seven. It's not anything like it has actual game play to it. At a lot of that is based on the fact that first of all Brittany you would love this game because it's Coop Yep perfect and so you either play as Demelza or Nessa and each of them have different moves for weapons as you go through the world. You'll power them up power them up. You will basically find you up for your arsenal. Let's do different things and it's sort of there's not a ton of this but there is is a little bit of the this part of the map will unlock later sort of thing once you get a certain scale. There's not a lot of it but there's it's very minimally there. It's like a little bit of like seasoning salt on on the steamer but it was really cute game and then explored friendship ship but especially at that age what it means and how relationships are and it also really explored some some more. I'm trying to super vague because I don't want to give away story but it does explore deeper almonds with one of the girls I think my own my main bummer is it doesn't explore the other one very much. She's he's just kind of like that piece. You get their relationship but you don't get any backstory on her or where she's come from or like why she's there and and that was sort of a miss for me I wish that they had explored both girls stories equally but maybe the sequel who knows and otherwise I think this game is also beautiful like the colors are super rich. The lighting is fantastic. There were a few moments elements were urinated because of the way that they were trying to send a medically do the camera made me feel almost claustrophobic. It was like a little too far in you would not be able to quite tell where he was. It goes through like running into walls and shit and you're like wait. I don't know if it's harder to explain exactly but I I put it at certain points. It was difficult to maneuver properly because they were so zoomed in and I couldn't figure out I was supposed to go. It doesn't happen a lot but it does happen enough times where I noticed that I was like annoying. Why are you doing this? Let me zoom out looks really cute. I'm loving the style. How long did it take you to you? beat it. I don't know how many hours I started over the weekend and then I put in a few hours every night so it's not super long. It's not super short art kind of somewhere in the middle. Maybe four to six okay something like that. It's not too bad and there are a lot of co oppa sort of puzzling things in the sense that you'll need to figure out which one of the girls should be doing whatever move to like help you move forward so it's like eleven environmental puzzles old and then combat you'll be fighting these curse things and start with Oh. Let's give you an idea. DEMELZA does a lot more of the we started more Malay kind of things ness was a little bit more arranged and so like a democracy has like willies as you can just like kick him stops and starts with the Frisbee where you just like toss it at people or you can charge them up and basically shotgun spread out and that was really fun. I really feel like this game has to shine with co OP. I'm super bad I played it by myself but even though I was playing thing alone I was having a good time with it because it's such a beautiful cute quirky little game it's again. I think already so this is part of why left double fine is that they make things like this. I and I just think they're really unique and special and you should support them. It looks it looks cute. Is it kind of like a feel the game yeah okay. The elements of the story are feel good like a deficit. It explores some tougher conversations but it doesn't bring you down yeah like live so yes it touches both light and dark. I would say and it does so fairly well L. Alexa durable. I had no idea if somehow this game completely yeah left my radar and it looks adorable. Yeah it is horrible. It's out out now. It was out on August twenty seventh. It's on playstation four xbox. I think you know pc all the usual spots. I played playstation four and then another thing I really love Baba's. I love the way they animated it. So is a little red headed girl who has like kind of to lay Ibans that just like bounce around the way that they had a Panamanian her. I like her faces. Throughout the game are the absolute best makes she makes faces. She makes oh my gosh. I should like a she's you. She's just realizing because like the face is so intense sometimes and you're Whoa Jewelry Nessa is supposed to be a little bit. It's hinted that Nessa is older than they don't. They don't really say how much or anything again so but you can really tell they animate them very beautifully sort of the top one who saunters a bit a bit more and then expanding alum. I God and it's so so cute so if you have somebody that you like playing cops co-op games with I would definitely pick this up if you have kids. I think this would be a decent one too. Few are looking for a thing to pick up and play. If you have daughters. Here's our health funds whatever but totally actually text raced in right now until him to get this downloading because this looks really cute because I've been playing like a lot of not dark but just kind of like looking for a little bit of a pallet cleanser. 'cause you know obviously gears. You know it's intense. It's not like a depressing but it's intense and Blair witch and I hopped into deadly premonition origins which is a ride all in itself and so I'm like I need something like little things right. Yeah yeah go nights as as in like knights of the round table is in the time of day nine hundred seventy a yeah we got borderlands coming up on talk real quick about a deadly premonition origins. I don't have to say about this right now because I I think the patch just went live yesterday but there's gnarly audio bug that's again. Can you believe it simmer. I'm having having another I don't how is this possible to be fair like digest me. It's a known issue but it's funny because they bought the known issues you just give him. No audio cuts after like twenty minutes but you know in a game like deadly premonition. It's almost okay because I mean for those. Who Don't I know you wanNA give a little back story deadly premonition? I don't even like we did you not oh. I never played it back. In the day I remember when the lodge I know it's one the most polarized games because like again to bring up a lawn. It's her favorite game of all time but then some people gave it a two out of ten so I it was at this game came out and Eric pigs still a friend of mine was reviewing it at Oh my at first he was like really into it and by the end he hated it like this game is broken. It's stupid and it is I love I love it yeah so let's keep it originally came out in twenty ten for those who might be confused is a survival horror game and kind of one of those if you fall under the camp of it's it's so bad it's good. That's where this fell. If you liked it or you were like no. It's just bad like so. That's a good way putting it yeah I've been trying. I've been robbing a poor brandon rock and I'm like how do I describe people that this is not a good game but it's so good at the same time yes. It's just like it's so bizarre and so we're I did try originally backed. I came out. I played it for maybe like thirty minutes and I remember thinking how ridiculous it was but I I've never forgotten it and so when it came out on the switch obviously Nintendo had their their big thing last week I was like okay now's a good time to happen but there's this audio bug that's plaguing me and the the audio cuts out and then it's not so terrible but it's just whatever so I think it's fixed now so maybe like seven hours into it at the moment and it's just so beautiful beautiful and I just WanNa love it and take care of it nurse it to health cannabis Samer. Let's clear again yeah like I said it's either. It's so so bad it's good or it's this is just bad and for me. I think I would probably side with broad big for me. It would just be bad game but now it's yeah for sure because it's frustrating. I've definitely had like a few moments like okay free because there's a lot there's a lot of driving and you have a map right driving in but gators no way to mark where you gotta go you just literally got to open up your fucking mapping your menu and like look at it and kind of rotate like okay. How do I get what streets streets away turned on so it was like that's kind of an annoying bug? It's kind of game where you have to save at like manual locations like there's no auto save or anything like that and it's hard to figure out like how fast travel works how anything works in this game so I'm finding myself on the couch with my ipod game fact like walk walk through and make okay. So what do I have to do because it's just yeah it's a good thing I want to play it but it's like I don't have that much time to dedicate to like learning this whole system so I'm Aziza Guide and it's it's made my life a little easier. I would think you would need to if you are like awesome need to churn through games. Oh my God it's a beautiful baby but I think that essentially covers it like I mentioned earlier. I am trying to dabble in torchlight too but there's this unfortunate issue. I don't know if it's other platforms but on Xbox it's voting people out of your games from trampling up so that down obviously we got borderlands coming up. We'll we'll be playing that all weekend and yeah. That's going to be a game itself but yeah I think I think that's it my student anything not that I can think of got a nice short and sweet one for you this week. Yeah I think we we melt it. I talked about five seven and a little bit so I could give us some padding now but it's all good it was another fun episode so and we hope you enjoyed it so if you did remember go counselor people who leave us one-star reviews saying that were fake or we mispronounce people's. AMC Much well. I mean we do is accurate that we mispronounced but we do. Don't talk us three stars for it. I'll accept one started action and that's it yeah but don't you just give us five years. Give us five because you who needs to make up for the people who deduct three. Please help ask well.
