"Mask out in public. Now the masks back then were not as effective is today. They probably weren't even as effective as sort of a BANDANNA t-shirt mass they were making today are face covering they were typically made out of surgical ause and even those were were uncomfortable to people so they didn't want to wear them and they didn't have idea of okay. We should socially distance and wear a mask as another layer. It was more okay. We can remove the social distancing measures and just everyone wears a mask and it's fine right by the way that might have played into the early recommendations not to wear masks. Because one of the downsides was the false sense of security that it might give in San Francisco it seemed that actually seemed to be a play in one thousand nine hundred nine thousand nine hundred. Absolutely you know I mean. I think that it's the way that the CDC and other agencies at the state level have really talked about face coverings. I think is smart. What they're saying is now of course. You know. This isn't really protective for you. It's protected for other people. You know that's really what face masks are about. They're there to sort of capture as many droplets that you're expelling as possible and not necessarily to filter out the air you're breathing in. And we do in compliance with other social distancing measures. Well right now you're thinking what about Newark Newark? And so much more tomorrow. In PARTU with J. Alex Navarre and now the Spiel. What if what if we weren't at each other's throats all the time? How would corona virus play out plausible case? Donald TRUMP WOULDN'T BE PRESIDENT. This goes before corona virus but in an election where Americans weren't at each other's throats there'd be no need to cast a ballot for Donald Trump and if donald trump weren't president and the person in the office of President were better at things earlier the US might be in a better situation. But I can't say that for sure because states. That are getting a lot of credit for doing it right. They definitely weren't as ignorant or truculent or combative as Donald Trump. But there were a perfect and they made mistakes. New York closed down late. Andrew Cuomo was talking about the panic being worse than the virus in early March. Donald Trump got things wrong. If he wasn't there maybe someone else would have got things similarly wrong. Maybe someone else would have gotten things right. But that's not the America on positing positing in America with a pandemic but we're just at each other's throats less and in fact. I want to stop criticizing. Donald trump quite so much right now to embody the spirit of not being at each other's throats. Whatever America just the tenor the Pinch of American politics and commentary and public life were pretty much at the median. Pitch of where we were somewhere after the Great Depression and before Newt Gingrich took over the Republican Party. There would be criticism. There would be unhappiness. There'd be some discontent there'd be good decisions and bad decisions there'd be people upset with those decisions and people happy with the decisions but there wouldn't be this free floating anger. There wouldn't be a seething that at times blinds us from very real and very dire circumstances. Let me just give you an example of a few things. That might be different. It might even be hard to realize. That doesn't have to be the way it is. Let's look at ventilators? Ventilators have become a cudgel. Ventilators have become an accusation yesterday in the press conference. Donald Trump said ventilators ventilators ventilators. He was venting a little bit but he was pointing to them as. Oh my gosh you blamed me about ventilators but I was right about ventilators. He was saying you blame me about ventilators but I was right about ventilators. Governors were wrong about ventilators ventilators as vindication the vindictive use of ventilators right wing media is now covering ventilators as in-your-face media. Some left-wing media is angrily shouting back. That's because we use distancing you idiots but in the not at our throats world we might be saying you know the initial concern about ventilators. Well first of all. It's totally understandable. Because we thought when you can't breathe when your oxygen level is at dangerously low levels the only thing we can do as incubate only it turns out that has the virus progressed. We found out that a lot of those assumptions were wrong. I mean this is a novel Corona Virus. We couldn't have known. Let's give ourselves a break. Remember we're not at each other's throats. Let's give ourselves a break about some of the assumptions being right. We tried to plan for a worst case. Scenario let's also realize the worst case scenario didn't happen maybe even we didn't come. Within ten percent of the worst case scenario though in some New York hospitals they were splitting ventilators between two patients in an unprecedented and dangerous experiment. But it is true as the trump administration says it does seem that no. American has died of a lack of ventilator and that seems to be the sort of in-your-face statement that would get trump's critic spitting mad but it doesn't have to think about another way to look at that. We thought that this was a tool that we needed. We needed it a little less because of walk because of good circumstances because of some good decisions but also because we re conceptualize what are need was for ventilators. Just at a not at each other's throats world we'd be thinking about that probably saying Wonder if applicable lessons to other parts of treating the corona virus hydroxy chloroquine. Okay now at each other's throats about that does it work. Doesn't it work? Are you giving US false hope? Are you a snake oil salesman? Are you taking away from the American people today? A big study emerged indicated. It might be more harmful than her full especially when used in conjunction with but there would be no end zone dancing over that. It's strange have you read. The coverage of that trump was wrong. If we will not at each other's throats and there wasn't a rightness or wrongness that extended beyond the medical efficacy of these drugs. Think it would be a more reasonable rational place. Lockdown versus economic activity in the our throats. World there'd be no versus versus would be you know the kind of tension inherent in every choice but not a steak to drive through the heart. It really shouldn't be a wedge issue. We would all admit that mass deaths are the biggest enemy to a good economy and we would also admit well of course a good economy leads to better outcomes for all the verses to the extent that we'd say versus would take on a different meaning it would be a balanced to work to try to achieve rather than when you did the seesaw or Teeter totter on the playground with that jerk. Who quickly got off and left you crashing to the ground hurting your bottom in the not at each other's throats world the outliers in this debate between lockdown versus economic activity the outliers which is be treated as kind of sad people who maybe didn't have it all there but in a pathetic way like this guy. Are you concerned about this virus? I was in the beginning. Until I've done my research and found out the realities and the the the the media's overreach on it and That is not as serious as they made it all to be in. That's why I am here because I feel that they are overreaching. Overreacting in crushing are small businesses crushing. Our economy I see. You're wearing a mask so you have some level of concern when I listened to him in not at each other's throat Americai just laugh in real America. Maybe hate the guy a little bit but then again in not at each other's throat America. His ignorance couldn't be weaponized. Not at each other's throats America. We also wouldn't have a media infrastructure to tell him he was right maybe even to give him that opinion in the first place. Or let's listen to this guy who is an open Texas rally over the weekend interviewed by the Austin American Statesman? This guy wouldn't similarly inspire in me discussed it would be more like dismiss of this. I don't even get sick. Hardly anyways I'm not gonNA catch the virus rubbing off on people coughing on people in public. You know I'm not worried about transmitting a virus. That's just like another flew. The Paucity of logic in Nathan Curling's opinion would not ripple beyond the holder of that opinion Mr Curling. And then there's this woman there's no reason for this shutdown. At this point. The disease is not that serious that we should quarantine. We don't quarantine for the flu. We should not quarantine for cove in nineteen the psychological repercussions of. This quarantine are becoming overwhelming. People have anxiety depression. We have reef. We have guilt.

"Explicit language. I can't get more explicit. Ten may say it may It's Tuesday April. Twenty first two thousand twenty from slate. It's just I might Pasqua. I don't know if you have noticed this trend. Pick up on it little trend. Donald Trump tends to politicize matters up to and including the corona virus. Does he does. He says he doesn't but he does yesterday. But this whole thing getting our country back and you know Nancy Pelosi's been she's very nasty and why. Why does he have to do this? The question is asked. I'll tell you why. Because if he didn't politicize things he wouldn't have one. What's IT GONNA win with his intelligence his sympathy the cares about people like me. Rubric is Great Programs. His ability to wrangle the legislature trump politicises for the same reason that Lincoln communicated in English or that Millard fillmore used his legs for walking or that Benjamin Harrison wiped his bottom after evacuating trump laid out a policy distancing and sheltering and states followed that policy. He didn't do it perfectly to enjoy it soon. He said all these stupid incorrect harmful things beforehand but you look at the actual policy. There flanked by burks vouch. -I an imperfect implementation of this policy and articulation of this policy. But the policy is the policy of shut things down let us distance and let us see how we do and so far we are actually doing tragic in some ways but perhaps better than expected in others. But here's the thing that I want to highlight about trump politicizing things because right now as trump has I'm not gonNA say championed. But at least you know authored been in support of the policy of sheltering in place and letting the pandemic run. Its course and trying a little bit to get aid to the states that needed. He's mostly done that and is that has happened. There have been a whole lot of people who are out in force opposing this policy. The policy of the trump administration and these people who are maybe even dangerously opposing trump and his stated policies are doing so wildly waving donald trump flags. Donald Trump twenty twenty flags and. That really is a kind of genius. Yes it's it's the genius of convincing stupid people but you know what I do not have that ability. I am cursed with only being able to convince smart people. Hello audience don't believe me. Well that's on you then. Here is a guy in Donald trump who could have a lot of vocal opposition on his hands but all he has to do is type into a computer possibly a phone. The word liberate maybe in caps before the name of a state and then in other state and then a third state that's all and then another state and then a third state and he's the guy and he gets credit for it. He's the guy that is overseeing a policy that they hate and yet here's the guy overseeing a policy that they hate and yet they give him more love and more fealty than they do any other politician. They the people who hate his policy the most. So why does he play politics to some extent? He's good at it. Really only one extent which is serving his base over and over and over but he does serve them. He serves them. With words he serves them with tweets. And sometimes he's so good at that that he gets out of serving them with actual actions. I mean in a way. He is serving them by saving their lives and our lives but he doesn't actually give into their policy. Demands is a little like tariffs where he was hurting farmers. He was hurting. Manufacturers are people who work for manufacturers but who loved that policy the most it was those very people as big as supporters. Were the people who should be opposing him. The most so now a little like tariffs. Here's what you hope. You hope that it's not just hurting his supporters. Five percent or ten percent or twenty five percent of their incomes but doesn't start hurting them in their actual lungs and start hurting them in their actual lives. And you hope that hurt doesn't sleep onto hurting medical responders and hurting innocent people they come into contact with. That is the hope that is my hope. I don't think that is trump hope because that hope or caring about people that does not play a part in what I have called his genius on the show today and animal experiment that is just an accurate. We will not be harming animals. How about this? It's a what if what if all of this all of this pandemic were playing out in an America where the pandemic wasn't wished away but a lot of the anger was what if but I in nineteen eighteen. A soldier in Kansas fell ill two years later. Six hundred seventy five thousand Americans were dead of what is called. What's called the Spanish flu for almost one hundred years? The measures different communities adopted to combat. The flu were poorly understood. Basically the question what worked underexplored then historians the University of Michigan again scouring medical and media reports to get a sense of the great plague. J.

From the Charleston Evening Post Charleston South Carolina Sptember Thirtieth Nineteen Thousand Nine Hundred Circus Tours Ltd. the following statement was issued at. The governor's office today. Well Governor. Manning was unable to accomplish under the law. In his endeavour to close South Carolina to circus exhibitions at this time because of the danger of infectious diseases and the demoralization and loss of labor. He has succeeded in part by negotiating and as a result although three circuses will exhibit in the state. They will not show at many places at which they were scheduled to appear. Ringling brothers will exhibit at only three places in the state. This is just one small tidbit under the rubric of circuses contained within just such a fantastic resource called the influenza encyclopedia. It is an archive of the coverage of the influenza outbreak of nineteen eighteen and nineteen twenty. And Not only. Is it interesting and informative? It is in fact vital to understanding. How a past epidemic played out and whether social distancing which they use then worked. J. Alex Navarro is a Co editor of the influenza encyclopedia. Lead Research with the lead researcher on this project. He maintains the Influenza Archive. Hello thanks for joining US Professor Navarro. You're welcome glad to be here so before I get into what you found and how you present it. Why why was this project undertaken So it's kind of a long story. It goes back to two thousand five in fact the center for the history of medicine at the University of Michigan was contacted by a think tank inside the Defense Department. I none of us at the center of unheard of them. Is that Defense Threat Reduction Agency and there had been this this urban legend. If you will of these maybe a community to that escaped influenza. Gunnison Colorado is the one I. Everyone has kind of focused on that escaped influenza in nineteen eighteen. And the defense wants to know. What did they do? Could we apply those lessons to a potential pandemic influenza outbreak? Today this was two thousand five the fear of of H Five N one. Avian flu was sort of looming and they want to know. Could the military load up? You know ships with soldiers and sailors and other military personnel and ship them off to see before. The outbreak actually spread to the United States with that with that Sir Save Them and so we look at these escaped communities and we did find some escape communities. Jabber went to island which is an island off the coast of San Francisco. It was a naval station at the time they closed the entire county of Gunnison. Colorado closed itself and there were a couple of other places that were basically sub communities Princeton University Bryn Mawr University. So they they were able to somewhat isolate themselves from the broader community. May in fact escaped getting the worst cases of influenza in the fall of nineteen eighteen when they reopened of course they still had a population that was susceptible so they did Dickie's. But you know as we saw with the diamond princess and now on on some naval ships. It only takes one infected person when everyone's in closed quarters like that on a ship to have a major outbreak. So it's not really the best idea following on that work a doctor by the name of Marty Citron. He's the head of the division of Global Migration Quarantine at the CDC. He came to us and he said one. Look at what cities did look.

"Hdtv Home Theater. Podcast first one. It's our inaugural one. We're getting to know how to do this and getting to know you. So we'll introduce ourselves in the show. My name is Brian Russell with me as always my partner are during. How's IT GOING TODAY? And so let's start off. I guess just kind of introducing who we are doing what we're going to do with the podcast and and I know that you just met us but we're ready to take relationship to the next level you know. Get to know you a little bit more or I guess you get to know us. We don't know who you are so How about a little bit about yourself are what? What do you know about Home Theater high definition? Well I worked for Advanced Digital Systems Group at Sony pictures for five years there and we basically built equipment to for the movie and Television Industry. And that's where I got involved with high-definition TV and actually Kinda took over from there. So what was the first time we saw high def say it was about nine hundred ninety six nine hundred ninety seven at a trade show and once. I saw it I said this is. This is the way it's gotta be and ever since then my wife's Kinda been sorry that I worked for Sony. Yeah I hear you. I don't think I started with. Adhd and. Tell them if you're on ninety eight that was my first introduction. Hdtv and it's changed my life. I am now a believer and there's a lot more complicated than regular TV. I remember as a kid. Gosh all my father did was connect to wires to the TV and turn it on and we only had like what seven channels in Los Angeles. Back in the sixties. Now you have to have all kinds of Stereo Equipment. High-definition tuners Do you get it over the air versus cable satellite. So we're going to try and demystify that. Yeah my dad connected me to the back of the TV. Move a little bit that way. We have a little bit that way so the show format. I guess we're GONNA do basically we'll do what we call on it news reviews and how to's right so we're going to sounds good. We'll start off with the news and see what's going on in high definition. We'll do some reviews of different. Maybe shows maybe products TV's stuff. I'm a big audio guy. So you'RE GONNA get a lot of audio stuff out of me. My opinion high definition without the surround sound is. I don't know why bother why bother and we'll we'll be answering questions from you the email or sending us an MP three our email address is HDTV podcasts. At MAC DOT COM. And we'll probably depending on how the show goes get her own domain and change that but for the now we're hosting it on my dot. Mac Account all right so let's see backgrounds. We worked for Sony Pictures. Did you mention the Academy Award? No I didn't. That's a good point and we'll just throw that out there. There's there's some buzzwords Academy Award Academy Award. We see one. We actually got an academy award for technical achievement for our digital audio dubber that we created for for Sony Pictures. And we're both avid home theater. High-definition nuts we've done custom home theater installation in the southern California area more. We really like to talk about it more than we actually like to people's houses and do it for them but yeah it was a great idea till we had the first customer who complained about every tiny little aspect and we said we want to be architects. More than we want to be installers. Yeah the whole tech support thing in hand holding us just not but we will take our time this show. Actually we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA go pretty slow after we get through the news. We're going to kind of just define what high definition is given. Hdtv primer so a few are an HDTV Guru. Maybe a little bit review or kind of slow for you but just hang out with this. We're going to get into the more advanced stuff as we move along and through the next few podcasts. If you don't know anything about it then we'll give you a bunch to talk about with your friends and Family. And you'll know all the buzzwords and all this stuff but with without any further ado list the news what do you got all right so. I on on tap today. We have a research firm called in-stat. They're reporting that. Hdtv'S HDTV service within. The United States is in four million homes and ten million worldwide. They're predicting that by the year..

"Only your small community of friends. It wasn't all public which I think a lot of the things before then were pretty public. Let's talk a little bit about timeline. When did open? Diarrhea launched to the Public October Twentieth Nineteen ninety-eight roughing was. Yeah that's when it went online about seven pm eastern right and then Andrew. Diary Landon landed Pitas. While Peterson was I was was not too much later. In Ninety nine right yeah Pitas was first. DYRLUND was probably five months later or something like that. Yeah to my recollection election. I think I think pitas was in the springtime a ninety nine and was like August September October right. Yeah I think it was August or so and then blogger Dot Com launched in September of ninety. Nine so what we have. Is You know in the span of a year The three four five sites come online and there. We're maybe one or two others but these were certainly the dominant ones across. You know. I guess I don't know what we'd later may be because the blogosphere whatever it was but part of it was blogs and diaries hirees internals were all seems very different things. What was your perception of a block? Initially called a weblog. Yeah exactly so. In Ninety eight when we first launched a weblog was kind of very similar to what Andrew was describing like. It would be somebody who was maybe posting links posting Information about like. What were they doing their job? Or things like that You know the the idea of like actual journalists blogs was still a long ways vice off them so you can't really compare them to blogs today to whereas we thought about a diary or journal that was a regular person talking about their our regular life and what are their everyday experiences And then when you add in the interaction with the you know what Lisa was pointing out we saw the same thing As people started interact with each other became this whole huger more amazing thing than just people posting their personal journals and like one of the key differences we we saw between live journal and open diary was with Lisa describe with live journal where groups of people who knew each other would use it sort of like how facebook is now was much more prevalent avalon on there then open diary opened Ari tend to be more people were posting their You know personal things that they didn't WanNa put somewhere else and didn't necessarily invite their friends friends and family to come in back then. Your friends and family weren't necessarily online. Have Modems right and at least I'm curious for you whether that sort of beers you're expressed i. Yeah I was actually just thinking as I was remembering my diary land account I maintained that account even as I started using journal and create you know became part of that whole community because my diary land account was actually sort of more like a diary like literally talking about my inner feelings and desires and sort of how I interacted with the world in a certain way that was not how I projected or what I talked about on live journal because I still was talking in my community and my friends in so diary land. I actually kept as a sort of private diary now. If somebody happened to read it or was totally anonymous on there. That would be fine fine but I maintain that for quite a while. I had both Because I did see the distinction there. Repeaters was almost pointedly. Not about about weblogs. It was about Peterson about diaries. Right I would say the main thing it with Pitas that differentiated it from dyrlund was just the pitas. It is was multiple posts on one page that I would say it was more like the weblog format whereas diarrhea land was just To begin with anyway was just one post per page which I mean. At the time there were a lot of people doing you know online. Diaries and I was sort of aware of those people people like doing you know with html and everything but Pitas was something. I just sort of throw up in the meantime while I was working on Ireland just to do that. Weblog LOG FORMAT SO YEAH I would say it was more actually of the weblog format. It's interesting because it feels like well. Maybe this is more of a diary land thing. There was almost a tension between these communities like diaries or one thing and blogs or another and you sort of picked one camp that you're in or or a different side your persona were expressed through different tools right. Oh absolutely There is quite a division back. Then I mean that was the whole reason that I started to different sites and then I guess when blogger started getting in big vase to me always. It seemed like they kind of made the conscious decision of. Let's call it a blog and kind of get everybody onto our thing you know and kind of Meld it. Maybe I mean I don't know if they actually were the ones that caused everything to kind of Meld or whether it was going that way anyway but I felt like people who used blogger and blog spot were more There wasn't that division for me when I think about that and how I I use those platforms and then I saw blogger and what I saw as a distinction with weblogs was that because of the sort of private nature of diarrhea Korea or journals. A lot of people didn't use their real identities. They didn't use their real names and their user names general and the Internet back. Then you weren't necessarily early coming forward with your real name. You weren't Presenting as the person that you were in real life you're presenting the persona that you had in your diary or journal and I you know that's that was true for blogs as well but that is in my mind that's when I think of starting to see blogs associated more with real writers real journalist has three people who are representing themselves online as the way that they that they've moved through the real world and to me that was a big change from the sort of diarrhea dowry and journals to blogs. And what we see today so the standard might have been You're either anonymous or you used used your your online hacker hindle or your AOL screen name or whatever it was you were you were neo from the Matrix. You had a very different persona. Yeah was that was. Is that the conventional an open diarrhea. We actually required users to be anonymous in the beginning like our rules. Were very specific. You could not post your personal information information And we considered that important for safety because of what people were writing about so that lasted for a few years. Obviously it's not like that anymore are posted him to be real name if you want to But Lisa makes a really good distinction like distinction to me between blogs then and today hey are blogs are usually people who are writing for an audience or to get their opinion out about something You know it's what happens on medium. It's what happens on a lot of different tools now versus somebody who's writing for themselves being interaction with the community that they don't necessarily want to share you know their absolute identity so if you're reading that piece that we have today and you're gonNA put your name on it and I want to be the leader on this idea and you were to do that on one of these platforms back around the turn of the century. What would the reaction be the response be? That's a good question I don't there wasn't it wasn't a distribution mechanism for think pieces. That was the thing could make a name for yourself off. No you couldn't make a name for yourself because you weren't using it real name and I posted things and I still do. I will write things that I think of as think pieces but I'm doing it more to say here's here's what I actually believe in and here's my manifesto but I'm putting out and You know if somebody figures out that it's my writing. That's fine but I'm I'm not doing it to promote myself. If I wanted to promote myself I'd go on medium or on twitter You know somewhere else other channels to my real name Andrew. When you had people that that had diaries stories started to get popular ARPITA starting to popular? What did that look like? How do people respond to it? How did you know something was catching on? You would just see the interaction between people on the site and you know you go to one diary. They'd be talking other people mentioning them. There are few cases early on that. Were really big One of the biggest or most popular users on the site he started a second account called.

"The encounter you have against it. Enemy will be very different than mine where if I'm rolling a party, that only has one that could only attack one of the enemy's weaknesses. I'm kind of waiting for that over and over and over again. But if your party has different attacks, you might roll up on an enemy that I had to go grind for an hour to level up to take down that you walk up to an all four members of your party hit one of their weaknesses in that might be the easiest battle in the game for you. So there's really cool elements of that kind of variation of a rock paper scissors approach. And then when you encounter the same enemy, a second time, the unlocks, the weaknesses are still unlocked. So you know it is. But when you go into new areas and get new party members and explore further, you're bumping up against new enemies and harder. Enemies and you can go into those areas. I think whenever you want, but it will tell you, it's like, hey, I'd recommend being para level fifteen, and I was like, yeah, I don't think so. I wanna add this character to my party. I did not make it to that character. I got pretty hard in that cave, but that aspect of the game I think is what makes it unique in terms of how I encounter enemies based on my essentially load out right of characters will be different than than how yours is. Jeff? Do you have a robot to? Well, I got bad news if what you do not want to encounter is the needing needing to grind. Battle chasers night war is not gonna either. There's definitely a grind there and you will encounter enemies are like, oh, I just need to go back and fight a bunch of low level guys order to get ready for these guys. They're both sort of old school GR PG style in that way where. I don't know why that's part of the trope, but it is that you have to kind of keep grinding in order to get your party higher. But in terms of combat, are you making decisions? There are only at least a start early in the game. You get more and more Billy's as you have up. But to start, you have relatively few abilities for each character so there. But I think there's a really cool decisions because what's happening is you in Bellchambers where you're, you have this. I think it's called overcharge. You get this overcharged thing when you certain attacks generate overcharge, which you can then spend an doesn't carry over into the next fight. So there's no reason not to spend it and the coolest stuff do uses the overcharge. So you're doing things to set up other things and the composition of your party. You can only have three members in your party at once in the competition, be party as you add new members really shakes things up and changes things. I found that commenting very compelling and addictive, and I definitely want the game like this because you don't. You're doing it so much and over and over and over. You want that little? Yes. Puzzle to be fun. Yeah, yes, totally battle chasers on switch. It is dude. I haven't. For some reason. It was okay. That was checkmate. The ultimate grind is a toilet grind. Everybody knows that. Yeah, that's why I was asking is 'cause 'cause I'm ready for that kind of game. I think on my switch. I don't know which one to battle chasers cheaper, but it's I like a lot man. I really loved it and it's, it's, it's gorgeous. Very good looking games too. Yeah. Okay. We helped us. I don't know how about how about to say dead cells or I'll play that next week. Trust me on playing also let me and if you guys ever played titan quest. Yes, I. We talked about that on t. r. s. I think that's all that game. I don't think I never played it. I played it on PC like a year ago. I didn't play during your. I mean, I don't think for maybe I was supposed to. I don't know. Class came out in June twenty June twenty six two thousand six. Oh, that's like right. When we started bro, that's literal. Three BC avatar, I think is how you look at that..

"I would be in hog heaven, it just not that great. Like the enemies in this game are not smart. They the things you do are pretty repetitive. The powers are fun, but there's always a couple of powers that each hero has that are just kind too hard to pull off for how much reward you get. So you kind of end up doing the same two or three things whenever super useful. But like I said, Dr moments of just pure wish fulfillment, ecstasy, and then unlocking new costumes and living through that marvel Lor and story, and the environments or amazing though the environment, the first amendment that I did after the New York prequel thing. Prelude thing. Was the place that doctor strange goes. I remember what it's called that is like crazy and abstract and colorful in the movie doctor strange of Quantum's. For ant man at, but anyway is something like that. The metaverse beat is the metaverse. Anyway, it's like gorgeous, and you find an as guard and you fight in the in humans home world, and you fight New York City. There's there's like tons of different places to find. They're all cool looking. I don't know. So in it's like forty tomorrow. It's. It's forty. That's. I mean, I guess. It's not air quote, full price release. It does what it does. Well, it's been a lot of time on the set dressing in making feel like that character. Yeah, and I think it's as you know what it is I going into it. It's a wave shooter in those concern. Lee be fun. It seems like there's a lot of fun to be had if you had to recommend, like top three characters that you've played with, who would you if people are picking this up? Like wherever three characters us think that they should for sure. Try. Well, I would say I would say Thor, Spiderman and iceman actually iceman's really fun to cool. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, but you know, play play with all of them just like, like I said, just the experience of looking at your hand and making the. Claws come out, pop out as wolverine. It's amazing. I mean, it's. It's pretty cool. And like I said, the visuals are worth it the great. So that's marvel heroes, United in VR on Oculus. All right guys. We've talked about a lot of stuff..

"For example, who swings his hammer around run around and you have this, you know, super fast, swing hammer at. The end of your hand, and then you raise your hand over your head and swing it down, and you smack the ground and create a Fisher that opens up attacking bad guys, really. Cool, really cool. So the characters on even they're all very thematic and their powers are what you would think you would need to do to do them. You actually have to do just pretty cool, but there's so many characters and some are cool and some are not. But like I can tell you that Thor has long fingernails. I never knew that, but because I could like raise my hand up and look at my fingernails. I can tell you or really needs to his fingernails. So. That level of detail that level of fan service that level of being inside the character is so much fun and. So so cool in and of itself. Like if this was just a generic game that had this play style, I would think it was not great and kind of isn't great. Like it is the same thing over and over and over again, but it's. The over and over again gets me cool costumes for marvel heroes and I'm into it. So I, I don't know. I'm really liking it. I can't tell still. Office classic Jeff. We've we've road this rollercoaster before you're like really cool though. Disappointed. Yeah. And then really cool waiting. Yeah. And then I feel like the last, but came at the very end where you're like, if this was a game without the marvel costuming six out of ten, whatever, you know, but but the marvel costuming put it over the edge for you, which totally get. You know, I totally understand that stuff. It's neat to like the things you like and see them in a new way. I'm curious, Jeff. What would be the better experience in your eye? A museum where you dress up as a marvel character and walk around and look at all the cool costumes or this game. Well, this gives you both. I mean, really, you're in the museum to it gives you the museum thing. And when you start a match, it shows you the character, like life-size in front of you that you picked in a cool pose and the poses are in lockable to just like over watches, poser on lockable. So it's life size. It's three d. it's in front of you. It looks you're looking at the character in the costume you chose for it that you're gonna wear. So you kind of are in the wax museum also, and the game is fun. I mean, a bad guy appears shoots a rocket at the thing. I'm defending. I reach up with my hand as the hulk and grab the rocket out of the air and throw it back at him as pretty. Yeah, that's pretty fun. I predict the next time you play this game will be at when you come home after having watched avengers. For whatever. I can't doesn't sound like a thing that you're actually going to be playing. I don't know. Like that experience. It's not like beat sabre where I'm like, I wanna play this every day. You know it really. I wish there was a game. I talked about a while ago on the show called siren to- VR which I don't know if anybody remembers me talking about, but is really good. And it's a, it's the game. I said, oh my God, they can make fall in VR that they made Titanfall the kinetic nature of Titanfall. They made it in VR and siren to is so ridiculously fun as it just a Connecticut act. First person action game where I'm leaping off walls, double jumping sliding. Popping into slow MO, slicing people up with Catanha's and then shooting them with guns in the air as I'm flying over them. The the pure mechanics of that game are absolutely thrilling and beautiful. And if that had been the way this game played, if that had married that that game play style with the visual flair and you know feeling of this game, it would be perfect..

"The next part is says, okay, you're captain America. Do we throw your shield is you know you swing your arm like you're throwing your shield and you let go the button and your shield goes for knows. Yes, yes. And you're in this cool prologue and like Spiderman swings down and moves a bus out of the way in the hulk jumps in and starts fighting something over there and you're like, robots coming from aim and you're, you've got three your shield atom and hit him and yes, and I start to throw my shield with my arm and it kind isn't go where I thought it was going to go. That's a little disappointing. And then I just held my hand forward and I pushed the button and my shield leapt off of my arm and shot out like a projectile return to my hand. And then all I had to do is like point and push the button over and over in my shoe would shoot out and shoot out and shoot out and shoot out like, oh, no, no, no, no game. No, that's not how I wanted to work. I don't want my shield of feel like this yoyo projectile thing that doesn't feel like captain America. So I was worried I was worried that the game was going to be bad. I had heard some bad things about it. Some reviews were not so kind and that even though that that first moment was a wow moment of looking down at my costume and seeing captain America's hands gloved hands and arms and seeing the shield mechanics just feel wrong. Okay. Then you got the prologue which, admittedly, really cool. Lots of heroes jumping in at the end of it. Captain marvel comes down and she grabs your arm and you take off and she flies through the air and you see New York City getting smaller beneath you and she's got this energy beam around her and you're looking at her. She's right next to you because you're holding under arm, so cool and then you arrive on, I guess, a carrier in avengers base and lock jaw is sitting there in front of you and you get this cool briefing about all the different missions and what you have to do, and you get into the character selection screen. And there's all these characters. I mean tons of characters. There's iceman and there's black bolt and doctor, strange and Black Panther shoe draw, stroke character, storm 'camorra, star, Lord, rocket. Raccoon is one of the characters you can play as no ironman though. Oh, which I suspect will be a downloadable addition later, because how do you make a game that ironman in it. So I picked, of course, I had to start with Spiderman. I had to pick Spiderman job into a match. The game looks gorgeous. Really one of the most beautiful VR games I've played. Absolutely stunning. I do a random match. I go into, I get put into what's the name of that place Datta's what does a random match mean? Is it not a story based or you multi-player is against people. It is a, you are multiplying, even when you're not the only way to play it is to jump into a scenario emission and play with three other people. You can either play with three other Botts controlled by the computer or play with three other human beings. So it's only that and it's only wave shooter. So you're going to a place and that place has a story. Unfortunately, the story is always the same in that bad guys are tacking it. You have to collect data from. These different points where there's a machine that shield has deployed there, the adventures of deployed there to collect data. You have to defend that machine while it does that over a series of waves of tougher tougher enemies until a boss. Spawns defend that. And then the actual, I don't know, bigger data collecting machine. I don't know what it is. The bigger macguffin they have to defend gets beamed down and that has a series of energy batteries basically that you have to collect from around the level as defending it and bring them back and plug them in when you plug them all in it turns on a a beam that obliterates all the enemies in saves the day is always that is movement. Teleporting are you free running, free, running, free running. You can also fly. If you're a flying character. You can also leap. Basically you can tell a port, but it's.

"Your game and visit all of your planet. Yeah, I wanna play multiple. I think it's going to be super fun. I mean, there's there's lots of stuff I haven't even tried yet in the new. I mean, there's there's like you can build freighters and do all kinds of trade routes. I, it's a full game now. It's not just like, look at the cool procedural world we've made. It's really got lots to do, and I'm I'm, I was digging man. I really was enjoying playing it. It's how does multiplayer work like is it a will, obviously, friends invited each other into a game, but are you also will you. Just run into people when that's supposed to happen and and yet you, you know, that thing where you, you start the game and people can just be populated into it. So, yeah, shared server with potentially other people, eve always. It's not. It's a separate mode. I thought that I thought that it was just in the normal mode. You'll encounter people wanted that to be the guest join someone's game or start. I think you have the option could be joining. Yeah, starting game are closed game. I think you have the option to do right. I did an open game, but some sun, the opening I didn't. I've encountered in either human beings either right. Okay, interesting. All right. And so much fun stuff to talk about. Let's talk also about our sponsor. I wanna tell you about skill share scriptures, new sponsor, and I'm really excited about this because I have a love of learning. I genuinely have gotten to the point in my life where I just love learning, and I think it's a a lifelong pursuit that everybody should fall in love with. And they're one way to do it is by using a service like skill share skill share is an online learning platform, and they have classes in a whole wide range of topics that you could learn a new skill, something that you could actually make money on and or you know, get a new job doing that level of learning or something that just you're curious about and maybe just wanna know more about and you love to find out how stuff works, how people do what they do. They have such variety. In the kinds of online classes and seminars that you can watch. For example, there's a whole set of game design courses. One of the ones I was watching that I thought was so cool was build a unity, three d, Mario Kart or not. Mark Russians. Mario, it doesn't say Mario build a unity, three kart game in one hour. So when an hour you start from nothing. And by the end of it, you have a card game. There was another one. This is the one that I, I really was fascinated by. Pixel art fundamentals. I've always wondered how people do pixel art. It's such an interesting class to talk about how you build pixel art and what the tools are to make it how you conceptualize it. Very, very cool. So there's a whole game design courses, but there's art, there's design, there's business, there's tech, there's lifestyle. I mean, there's cooking. There's health and wellness languages, all kinds of stuff. Skill share is a really, really awesome platform that allows you to just expand your knowledge..

"And that as as it matures, it's going to it's going to have a much bigger place in all of gamers hearts, Dan, you directed an entire episode of black mirror that was built around the concept of VR and you put a lot of thought into it. I know you own a headset. What is your sense of the current state of VR and how much stock do you put into this press release by HTC. Will a might be considered a our in our episode of bad at that.

And so I feel it's all going to be of a thing that anyway, so people are kind of mincing words. Maybe VR is dying because airs taking over it up grant that, but I don't think that's what people mean when they say VR is dying. Right? And no, I hear you. I, you know, and I, I would just being annoying, but I also, I don't know, dude. I mean, I love it. I love the experience of it though. I certainly have not proving my wife and some friends, right?

I don't know what it's it's quote, unquote. Iphone is going to be, but I do know that like most things, the thing that would make it takeover is it has to be easier s to be more accessible.

"But aside from some skins that are like fan created that they charge money for ten agenda, the the, you can earn everything and it's insane. Some things take are really long time, and it's very challenging, but the fact that I can show up in a a match, you know, a a level with other people, and they're looking at me with this thing that this weapon that I have because I spent the time to get that weapon is incredibly rewarding and also just, oh, I wanna play with that guy with that. Frame that were fame that that those abilities and how I want that, okay, we'll spend the time I earn, and that's, that's why chose to put so many hours into that game versus destiny, for instance, for variety of reasons. But one of them is just I get really earned a ton of cool stuff, and I get to see it. It's the third person game were destined is not. But anyway, I don't even wanna go down that rabbit hole of why why? Why is over watch is why is the cat on the stick of overwatch aside from the great game play, which I do enjoy, but wires skins a big deal and overwatch win. You don't see them it. It boggles my mind. I find so frustrating. But YoM, I agree in the conversation for. Yeah, my my story of the week is one that you guys probably could've predicted. TC says, VR is doing just fine. Thank you very much. A lot of of course, hot takes all over the internet about how VR is dying. HD says not so fast. They put on a blog post. There was a a euro gamer article specifically that said, VR is a dying and they were writing the epitaph for for VR HTC says, no, a sales are down, but that's only because we are running out of stock because we can't keep them in stock 'cause they're selling like hotcakes. They said that the numbers aren't the whole story that divide has paced at its highest sales velocity of all time for weeks on end. And we are sold out is for a consumer electronics product. In its third calendar year, this continued trajectory is nearly unheard of. So basically the fact that they started lowering the price of vibe means the people have started buying. Them and they didn't have enough inventory on hand. So you're not seeing huge sales numbers because they just can't keep them in stock. The interesting to me, I'm heartened by this as somebody who's a fan of the of the technology. Clearly you don't hear people talking about VR as much anymore for on this show and I'll be talking about it today for sure. But I think this is I wanna believe this. I think this is probably also a little bit of spin, but I'm very, very secure with the idea that VR isn't going away. If you're gamers position is that it's dying. Maybe these particular products that we see now aren't selling in the ways that people thought they might. But this is this is you know the the on live again. This is the the razor smartphone right that before the iphone came out, this is the. The harbinger of better things to come on. And I have no doubt that VR is here to stay and that it's only gonna get better and better cheaper, more comfortable of higher quality..

"It's fun. It's fun to open them and get something cool that you didn't expect. It helps it really helps. Like play a game that you enjoyed playing, but don't see the reason to continue playing a game, and they're being a system in place like Luke crates makes you like I just, we live in a time now where there's too much to play and there's there's not only is there a wide variety of games that are great to play, but all those games are quite long. You could spend a whole year just playing that one game. And I know that we all think about this quite a bit yet the three of us and it helped. I have to make these decisions in what what game we're going to spend my time in based on what am I gonna get the most out of like, what either what are the rest of my friends playing so that at least I have some of an experience that I can speak to speak about with them or what is a game that I feel like I can improve get better at which is when I was in the zone of playing years, the storm with you. Guys and you sort of when I'm deciding between multiple games, it's like the Luke creeping least like, oh, I get something in return for my time in the game, and it's a, it's a lovely cat on the stick for me to get better at the game for me to find, looks crannies in in bits of the game because I'm gonna be rewarded for it. I enjoy that. I'm still playing the game and getting all of its what's intended out of it. Whether it's they are or not. But if I'm making between multiple games, the kind of makes it a little bit more enticing would not based on money as do with money just has. It's sort of a ward for time spent. We used to talk about this a lot when new case for sort of just entering the game space. And I think they've become so common that the point of reference has faded. But I remember we used to talk a lot about how it's basically the same thing as killing boss. You know, like you talk it. We're gonna talk about while later, but you know, killing a Boston. Wow, is basically hitting a loot pinata. It explodes a bunch of Luton us. What? What did I get that is core central gameplay mechanic in all of those games. That idea. I mean, Diablo is basically just loot boxes over and over and over a thousand times a minute. You know, it's just like killed kill things. They explode what pops out of them is a mystery. So. In a sense, it's as central gaming idea. That's just been sort of abstract to the point, hopefully out to the point of just being like, give us money, and we'll give you that thing that that process instead of playing the game that process so that it is interesting, right? I feel like it's maybe not the loop box. It's the monetization of it and then getting smarter exploiting that endorphin rush that we get where it's as long as there is a balance between you earning something or getting something in that progression, not feeling gated or it's when it leans too far into, we'll give me two dollars and I'll do it for you, or, you know, pay a dollar and you'll get this better loop box or you hit this loop box. Great. And you've got this the best cloak ever, but to use the cloak needed key in you gotta buy the key like there is a, I think, Dan, you made a really great point and I just looked right past it after you said at the really are great examples of this reward system and games. I think some extent that's all at gaming is right. But we've people have become too smart with it maybe for their own good. And now we're, we're backing away from that. That's the correction we're seeing. I know you guys don't. You brought up war frame if you weeks ago with the switch announcement at because of put a lot of time in that game.

I think it's a good thing. And second of all, do you think this is because people see the writing on the wall. And that there's going to be a not only just a fan backlash, but like a legal one as well. I assume so yes. But I will say that I really enjoy the loot crate experience. And I wish that I, I love the things that it does to mind orphans and I, I wish that they could implement them in two to capitalize on what it does to one's emotions without making it based around in-app purchases, like take the financial side out of it because you're worried about the legal ramifications or what have you. And I've not played for two don't know quite how they've implemented the crate system, but I but I think there's a way to deliver it and I know Jeff, you've mentioned here's of the storm. And so I, I don't know if that's immune. If it's if it's very different or care. Than these other shot shut of war. Even this asan's creed, the the one that had crates, I didn't think I didn't experience it when they were if they're patched out or something like that, but I but I enjoy him. I enjoy them.

Like do you think the endorphins are the same if there's not a a real world loss, if you don't get what you want, because it's not. I'm not. I mean, we'll would, here's the storm. Would we consider that a financial well reason implementation or is it both? Right? Because since they put Lou crates in, here's the storm. I have not spent a dime on loot crates on specific lucrative spent time on other things, but I haven't spent time on Lou crates. I have opened hundreds of them hundreds. In fact, in fact over to today, and I opened one not every day, but pretty close to it. I mean it it's not hard to earn a Luke Luke box in. Here's the storm. You get one every time you level up. And you can level up a every character in the game infinitely. So I mean in constantly adding new characters. So you constantly at like low, you have to by the characters, so get you, but you can all you can spend you. You choose between twice spend this currency that I've been earning the game on a new character, right? Or do I spend it on lucrative on pay for the character? You know you, you get to make those decisions s. that's that's absolutely true, but you also can just earn lucrative. I mean, I earned and I'm really glad you.

"Offers it. If you have the hardware capable that's literally the own. The only thing would be resolution to your television. Right. What what the complexity of the image that they're giving you? Right? Doesn't matter to the dummy box. All that matters is to the thing that's actually rendering the Polyolefins which isn't happening locally. In fact. I would say Dan that that that vision is super exciting, but also is held back by this idea of scarlet being put out in two versions like in order to get to that place where just constantly getting better and better throughout the life cycle of the thing, you have to not have the local box to not sell that skew of the hardware because that skew is the one that can get outdated well. But you know, a Netflix started out with the levering DVD's to our doors, right? And then also threw in streaming as a bonus. And then it organically blossomed into what it is today. And I think they will always find a way to to. Upsell us on the latest thing they will. They will make up a reason why we need to get new boxes even if we're streaming. The other thing I was gonna say this this reminded me of is maybe you'll tell me this isn't quite the same thing, but do you remember the uproar to uproars? There was one at the last XBox, the always connected thing. That experts one was Xbox One. It was a launch of Xbox One. Yeah. Yeah. We have one freaked out how stupid was that in ISIS at the time. I said, I remember, I remember. Yeah, I remember, but I was also gonna say end Diablo three. I think there was a thing right with it's like eight just goes to show like people don't know what they want and what they need. You know, it's, it also goes to show that Microsoft isn't apple because apple what went. No, you want this, we're right. And they would have been. Proven right and all and another thing it shows I think is how quickly things that seem offensive in crazy can seem completely passe an obvious right? Like it didn't make very many years for us to go, oh, and always on connected. That makes sense. So the things that you know it was a little ahead of its time, and I think that's to Microsoft's credit what isn't to their credit is that they to that pressure and that pressure was a little. I think I dunno wrongheaded. I find this to be pretty exciting, and I also think it's a, it's a testament to how much Netflix, Amazon, all these services are in our daily lives that we no longer blink at the question that this is possible. Right? Because it wasn't too long ago that everybody was like Ono the lag. I mean, even on live suffer from the all the press around on live was about how the lag is too much. You know, it's it. We're really working on it. We've really got it down it, but people like known. I can't have any lag in my games, and I feel like nobody doubts that that's possible now and probably has a lot to do with how familiar we are with streaming video in our lives. No, totally. Yeah, glue. Anyway, that's an exciting development, and I'm sure we'll hear more as that progresses hopefully Microsoft stick to their guns this time. Actually, the thing that thing I want to want to mention about that very point that the little bit unfortunate is that we might be reaching the stage in video games that we've reached in music in TV. We've already said this earlier, but I just wanna underline vet like we now are more okay with convenience over quality in all of those mediums. And it's really sad, and it's and it's a bummer. And even you feel that way, right? You don't, you know, no, not much Blu rays on watching things on my ipad, and I'm watching things that are not the right aspect ratio because HBO HD doesn't air things in two, four out, you know, it's like they don't. You know Netflix as well, you know? So I'm succumb to that because I want the thing in my eyeballs when I want when I want it, you know. And is there a part of you that went while you're making ten Cloverfield line, for example, was thinking about people watching it on their phones?.

"Like that seems to have always been the catching point when we bring bring this up and talk about it, but also to that end twenty twenty is what two years away. And to put that into perspective, at least for me, the apple app store just celebrated its ten year anniversary. So only ten years ago, there was no app store. Now. How many billionaires are there the world over because of things that they sold through that store. Right. Like tech changes so quickly and Microsoft has clearly been working on this for years. So for them to have a system in place, ready to go by twenty twenty. I believe it. I don't know if it will be perfect everywhere because part of having the something in place to deal with lagged. How you know I have fiber where I live or I'm in Jackson Hole right now. Not on fiber. You know, like we can tell not. That since all ready having. Okay, great. I'm I'm not sure, but I'm excited for it. I think next gen though I might split the difference in by the traditional box, which I hope would also be able to stream. So I have I straddle that line. Yeah, yeah, I don't. I don't know if I'm ready for the next gen to be the one, but I guess if Microsoft is saying, hey, either or I'm such an old school guy. I like I wanna have all my pixels computed in front of me on locally. But then again, you know, as Dan said, I also prefer Netflix not owning physical disks and stuff. So. It's gonna be interesting to see how this develops. Now, the other thing that Dan brought up and that I wanna talk about is a really interesting idea of this paradigm shift of. If you're now just working with a box whose entire job is to be basically Roku, you know, or your apple TV. All its job is to do is just suck things down from the internet and display them on your television. Then they're really doesn't ever need to be a set system spec for what the x. box or the PlayStation is you. They literally could just keep improving the back in hardware, the cloud hardware and developers. You know the first year of whatever scarlet is they put out games that look good because they're able to work on whatever hardware that is. But by the fourth year there they've gotten it's more like PC's where it's like, oh, there's just better graphics cards. Now for years later, we didn't have to wait for an interational cycle of consoles because it doesn't matter. All I have is this little dummy box that plugs into my television that pulls the image down. What's actually important are is the architecture. In the cloud that Microsoft is using, and they can update that anytime and let developers know at any time. We'll could be some device stuff still right? Like apple had released their four k. apple TV Roku released, therefore cage DR one like I don't know if it's just output for sound and picture picture quality, but the actual device itself does sometimes get updated even like Netflix. You can't do four k. HD are on any streaming service, but Netflix.

"Where you send questions, comments, stories, gestures, anything like we ll. Love to hear from you, Dan, you our guests who get first pick of stories. What would you consider to be your story of the week? Probably this XBox next Jin scarlet thing, right? Yeah, it's it's kind of we kind of heard some rumblings about this awhile back, but now there is some more hard wait hoarding on what it would. It ends up when it may end up being. This is from Brad SAM's on throat and throttle is a tech website. Paul threats website. I believe that has gotten a lot of stuff right in the past about Microsoft and about the XBox in particular. So there's some credence to this. What I guess we have to consider a rumor at this point. But as you said, dance called scarlet, at least that's the code name of the next XBox, which of course, Phil Harrison even referenced on stage at e three this last year during the Microsoft press conference, but we get some details about what it might be and when we might. Expect it is evidently set today byu in twenty twenty. And the most intriguing little tidbit here is that they will be two versions of the next XBox, the scarlet and the Johannesson the scarlet Johan's it, yes. How do you pick between a Scarlett Johansson. The there is a physical normal kind of local box that you buy just like you've bought every other console in your entire life. But there is this new version that will be a cloud computer, so you will buy a much less powerful thing to plug into your television and that thing will use it. It's internet connected to harness the power of Microsoft's as your architecture to stream game..
