"Kind of funny games or tomorrow for free. My last question on this topic is when are we going to get a Teen Titans game? That would be the thing about games. And that's funny too, 'cause this morning I was like, you know, thinking about seeing some of the cutscenes and how people were talking about the story. I was like, this kind of has more of a Teen Titans vibe where it's a little less serious and I'm kind of into that as well. But let's get a Teen Titans game though. If this was a teen times game, you could have shown me all the same shit and I would have been like, oh no, but it's team Titans though. I'm fucking it. I'm gonna play the shit out of this thing. I'm just like, I'm not a bat family person. I guess yet, you know, give me something that gets me there. I'll be interested to see if this makes you a bat family person. It'll do a good enough job. I'm bringing everybody in. I hope it does. I hope the story is. Let me see it through. But as of this moment, I don't know if I'm going to play through this whole thing. You know, especially talking about God of War codes or other games that are coming on October because October. See, here's what I think is interesting about that. Don't get me wrong. I look at this and it looks like a middle of the road game. It looks like it'll be hopefully fun enough to play. Hopefully the story is great, whatever. But you were so into Ghost of Tsushima that I wonder if this is kind of like our outriders moment of it's that game where it is like, all right, let's just drop in and beat the shit out of some people and level up and move on and if it can be that. But also it's about the competition that's surrounding it now. That is the best case scenario scenario for me of like, oh no, this game is just fun to play and I enjoy the challenges and hanging out with people playing this game. But with the armies playing it, right? You'll be all over it. Oh yeah. The challenge, the challenge with that. I like you, I might call you. Listen, I can figure out. I can figure this out. We can be like a share custody situation, where you can get me to be daytime. Get the nighttime. Fair enough. Fair enough, yeah. Let's hop into story number two. Overwatch two servers are down following a mass DDOS attack on launch day. This comes from Tom Ivan at video games chronicle. The Overwatch two servers have been hit by a mass DDOS attack on the game's launch day. That's according to blizzard president Mikey Barra, who said on Tuesday that the company is doing its best to resolve issues, preventing players from accessing the game. Quote, teams are working hard on survey issues with Overwatch two. He tweeted, he continued, quote, we're humbled by the excitement of players and will continue to focus on issues and get players into the fun. Thanks for your patience end quote. Over us two game director Aaron Keller has said that his team is working through the night to resolve the issues which have plagued Overwatch twos launch day. The game appears to be much more stable this morning with huge cues and connection errors of launch night, mostly being resolved. I'm not going to try and get into Overwatch two this morning. But let me tell you, all day yesterday. You were so excited to play yesterday. I was so excited and maybe like hourly I was trying to hop into Overwatch too and get in there and not once did that game let me in. And I was trying out different platforms too. I was trying on PC. We did the most of the KF stream from yesterday was us. Many me and Andy, you can somehow Mike got in before the serving. That's why they let him in. And it's because he's got that he's getting the PlayStation stars treatment. They know that Mike forks up the money and he's getting the best of customers. The better customer service. And so he's somehow got in there by 1130, even though the servers weren't supposed to go live until 12 insane. But then the rest of the stream was me and Andy, just constantly trying to get back in and neither of us being able to get through. I don't know what Andy story is now because I saw he put up his stream from last night. I checked with him this morning because we're doing the games cast and I wanted to talk about it there. He did say he did get in. So he played a bunch and they're trying to get obviously today for the stream. But yeah, even late last night, I still couldn't get in. It was such a bummer. And it's the story of live service games on launch day. Like this isn't anything that's too crazy. We've become accustomed to this. But it still blows my mind that even after a decade of games and service and online games and getting these launches over and over again, we're still at a place where launch day can't be clean, even from a company as big as blizzard. And I'm not casting blame on them because this is assisted by a DDOS attack, which especially is nefarious from a different party. And so they can expect a lot of players to come through. I don't know if they can always expect a DOS attack to happen. So that's not necessarily on them. But even the fact man, that on launch day, I just can't get, I can't get my Overwatch two experience in. I'm bummed out about it. I'm sad about it, but maybe today. Maybe today I'll play some more watch do. Today you're going to get it. Don't worry about it. Today is going to be your day blessing. You already get in there. You're going to see what it's all about. The hubbub. I would knock on some wood after Greg saying that. Knock on some wood. Right now. Right now, I think I'm not going to my desk right now. I don't know if it's made of wood. It's fake wood. It's the same stuff we got at the studio. I'm pretty sure. I think these are the old studio desks. Does that make sense? I do vaguely remember Kevin giving you one of those. That's right. Yeah, yeah. Still missing a screw.

"I think it will be fine just because most of the time it's like one of them's like kind of always gonna be unable. I've got cool look after the kid or you know and also it's fine way for all of us get on like I would, I don't know about everyone else but I'd be like I'm happy to say this one now and just like hang out I'll just look at surf Twitter for a bit or go and get a drink while you guys get a few games and then it will be fine but it would have been good if they have if they had like an option for like 6 feet 6. But like Jeff, what is a Kaplan? But it's not Kaplan. Aaron? Yeah. I was like Jeff Kaplan. He's still there. Aaron Keller was like they are thinking about ways that they can at least keep groups together if not playing together and one of the things that he mentioned was like a potential idea is like having it so that you can one person will spectate and then you can tag in and out between games and that kind of stuff which would be good like I'd love to be able to just watch everyone else. Yeah. But it's going to break some groups up. It's going to shatter relationships. Yeah. They should provide mediation and personally. They're doing people dirty here. What are they going to do with some of these like Overwatch league teams? They're just going to have like a dude hang out now. Well, they always have like folks on the bench. Oh, okay, okay. Okay. It just means. It will be interesting though. That is a good question about team composition and setup for Overwatch league. I don't know how they're going to approach that, but it just mixes things up, and it also is going to lead to some players being like, well, maybe I should start looking for another team because I'm not being played and that kind of stuff. Moving into Valorant. Yeah, well, even other games, yeah. Interesting. Stuff is a foot. Can I ask about is junker queen op? The thing he described earlier sounded pretty nasty and gnarly. She's ridiculous. And this is always the case whenever a new hero launches into. So she has a blade that she throws called Gracie and anyone she hits when she recalls it. It applies a bleed effect and then she gets over health from that. She has an axe that she swings same deal. She has a shout that is basically like a haste. And so applies it to her and everyone around her in like quite a big circle and then her alt is like a shit I would say how old is maybe the worst bit is just a charge going in. But if you are a very, very good and she's got like a kind of shotgun type thing. So she's not great from range. But if you are getting in there applying that bleed applying that overhead, she's pretty unkillable. Yeah. And then if you also have a healer on the team, which most teams do, she's getting even more heels, so she is like, just feels unkillable at times. You have to really focus her down. Which is tricky. Jeff grubb is currently making a balloon for his daughter, which is incredible. It's almost adorable thing I've ever seen. I've ever seen. I just love that. I just love that in 2020, a kid has just appeared and been like, can I have this balloon? Grabbing a balloon party for their friends in their playroom with their friends being all their toys, all their little toys. Oh my gosh. There's a toy cake on their table and stuff. They're balloon party. That's what's happening today. Yes, you may have this balloon. When is Jeff grubb gonna be a character in Overwatch two and all he does is just fill up balloons. That's all I got balloons, I'll be balloon animals and stuff. That sounds pretty good, actually. I'm sure they can make that work. You know what else is pretty good, and I'm surprised they made it work. Fire emblems warriors three hopes. Oh. I talked about this a little bit last week. And Jeff grubb, I'm here to report that it still has its hooks on me. I have tried the auto battle portion of this. And I've bumped the difficulty down. So I'm pretty much just playing a visual novel right now with occasional occasional relationship building because I could care less for the actual warriors portion of this game. There are occasional moments where it's like, that's pretty hilarious that this one character is like killing and maiming hundreds of people just by one button press, you have attacked everyone on this map. But eventually got very, very old. Especially with a characters that aren't that don't use a melee weapon. All like the spellcasters, the archers or whatever. It's like, this is just awkward. You're just hitting the button to watch animation, and that's it. Yeah. What is gaming? But pressing a button. You can't go down that road because then it's like, oh my God, what have I been doing with my life? Wait, so hang on, Jeff. Not Jeff, sorry, Jan. Who are you kind of like taken out to tea? So I'm just hanging out with my boy Claude, just going on horseback rides with clog. All the golden deer and I just really, really hate Nintendo and the developers of this game because they've done it. They got me to play through a warriors game and I'm trying to play through it as little as possible. The times where I'll actually engage in play the missions is when it is like one of those bigger sweeping maps because it actually feels like there's tactics involved in a kind of reminds me of fire emblem in some senses of like, all right, I gotta send my person with an axe to fight this person with a shield because that's more effective. But it's like the smaller battles that just like they don't really feel like they matter. I'll just hit auto battle and then let's just fucking go all right cool. What happens when you hit auto battle? You hit auto battle and then what appears on your screen, what inputs do you have at this point? It just happens. It just happens. The mission happens, you get graded. I think it's funny. Okay, so it's simulating a game and like Madden or something. Yeah, so because you are leveling up your characters throughout these missions, it takes all that into account. And since I have everything bumped down to super duper easy, like none of it actually really matters. And when I eventually do pop into a mission, I am just gaining levels out the wazoo. So what I'll do is I'll switch to a character that feels under leveled, run around the map and destroy a bunch of enemies that way. And then you're off to the races and cooking. It's the story that I am so surprised is able to just get me in there. I still wish this followed a formula similar to persona 5 strikers because that was less musso than full musso. In that you engage in these encounters and then you fight like a mob of enemies versus constantly fighting a mom of enemies. I think the thing that's just also making me want to play the game less is I'm just noticing more and more how ugly everything other than the characters is. I think the switch lately has been showing it's gray hairs more so. I mean, you see the steam deck. So yeah, the comparison there is really tough at this point. So you're saying that the gameplay part of this is more mousse also. Yes, it's fucking Christ. I was gonna do the Rob Zombie, more musso than less musso or whatever he said, but that was way better, Tam. Jesus. More so musso than musso's of the past. I followed. Yeah, thank you. Thank you. But yeah, it's kind of a tough recommend because it is a full price title, but if you really do like the story of three houses and you got really attached to your respective house, minus the sewer rats. Hey, and this economy, I can't even get attached to one house. We don't have a sound. That is funny. That's what I got. Maybe that's a different type of.

"Don't worry about it. Tim, similar question obviously about the 9 weeks thing, but I also want to call out what the final quote here from Keller was, right? Additionally, larger pieces of the game that have always been part of the vision for Overwatch two will be released to the game as part of the live service, including the launch of the PVE campaign next year. My question is in line with that, Tam, the 9 week thing, and then a little bit is Andy mission of halo, but not the same degree. Do you think this PVE campaign for them becomes the same way halos multiplayer edition has been haunting infinite? So the 9 week thing is kind of interesting to me when I spoke to them. They were Aaron Keller, at least, was extremely confident. He was like, no, we're going to, we've been planning for a really long time. And we have grown the team. The team is exponentially bigger than it was for Overwatch one. And they've created content production pipelines that are specifically designed to ensure that they hit. These kind of like 90 week rotations. How long that will go for remains to be seen at the very least the first year we'll be fine. I expect a second year we'll be fine. Year three, I can't say as much confidence, but they seem to be very, very confident in their own kind of timing for all this stuff. In terms of the PVE becoming a kind of white whale style thing for them, I'm inclined to believe that they are in a good spot with PVE. And the reason they talked about kind of decoupling it was the kind of production and also the kind of rollout of Overwatch was being hampered by having them tied together and PVP couldn't go until PVE was ready and vice versa. And the content kind of split was kind of making it hard to produce content and get stuff out. So that's why they decoupled it. I think where they're at now is in a much better position where they can independently work on PVE and make sure that it's when it's ready, it's out and it's done and it doesn't have to earn content for PVE doesn't have to wait for it and vice versa. So I think I'm pretty confident that it will come out when they say it comes out. What's interesting to me is going to be whether they continue to support it going forward. I think they would. I'm not sure if the kind of support for PVE will roll out on the same like 9 week style cadence as the PVP stuff. I imagine they will have additional updates to PVE because they're basically that's basically going to be what the event based off the junk and stuff kind of like the archive events were. So I imagine they will continue to support it. I'm not a 100% sure if it will be as consistent or if it will be like sporadically, hey, we've got a new kind of like chapter. And also part of me just also assumes that and not necessarily assumes, but maybe praise in hopes that they're seeing the way the industry is moving with getting into cross media type stuff and PlayStations wanting to do all these TV shows and obviously with PVE that lends to a lot more story like experiences and maybe we start to see and start to spread into different types of media not just comic books. Let's go. We also with whenever we see Netflix geeked week like there's always all these brand new animes that are, you know, that fucking dragon age and all these sort of different properties are getting made into TV shows that are just kind of seems like it makes sense and that's the nice space to take over. I think they keep that stuff in-house in their game for as long as possible. I talked to when I talked to Aaron I was like, with the PVE stuff, can we expect more of your shorts and origin story style stuff that people love in the game and he was kind of like, yeah, there's going to be more of that stuff there. I feel like PVE is where they explore a lot of that stuff and they really beef up the cinematic universe of it. Element of it. I think it's going to be something. I can't think of a single blues property outside of what a Warcraft a movie that has been adapted in a way that indicates that they're willing to do more the World of Warcraft movie was fine. I've heard. But I don't think that as well. I don't think that adds on it with riot, but then arcane did a lot for a lot of people, so perhaps they look at it now and they're like, hey, we should just do that. We can make that happen. I would love to see them do that stuff. I would love to see them take the visions approach and be like, hey, studio that made my hierarchy. Here's Overwatch, go and do it. Hell yeah. I meant to say, yeah, right is kind of the big, the big sort of missing name from all the stuff that I was listing right is definitely I feel like taking over what blizzard has wanted to do has wanted to be in the past decade or so. And I think that they are maybe quaking in their boots, Greg Miller. I think they're a little crazy. I think they're quite in there, but I think they're butcher quake in. So I would love to see them kind of take that over and whatever Tam just said right now really broke my heart. I'll be ruined you. Well, gentlemen, thank you for your time. We'll see you later. Thank you. Remember, remember the work had always used more heroes..

"Holy shit. They're into it anyway. Tam, let's start with you. What do you do you care at all about Overwatch one going away and then how do you feel about moving to the 5 feet 5 model? So do I care about Overwatch one going away yes for the sake of a game preservation, the Overwatch one experience is now unique. It is going it is a different kind of experience. It being 6 V 6. I think that I would care. I'm caring more about it knowing that Overwatch has 5 V 5 and there's currently no way for my group of 6 friends who I constantly would play with that includes Andy to jump into that game and play together like the biggest issue I feel like the community is having right now is in the switch to 5 V 5, one person in an Overwatch friend circle needs to be benched and that sucks. And also like the unique dynamics of a 6 V 6 game almost from a historical perspective and a game design perspective. There's a lot to look at Overwatch one and how it evolved. To analyze and pick apart in the 6 V 6 context and that's probably going to be overwritten. I hope that what they do is I imagine someone out there is probably going to archive it in some fashion and now we have that thing where they bring back wow classic and they bring back Diablo of old and my hope is that blizzard does it in a way where they do sunset Overwatch one but they do it in a way where a few years down the line they can be like, oh watch classic is being rolled into Overwatch two or we're bringing that back so I do care about it. Yeah, so they did talk about some stuff that they didn't say they're going to make a 6 V 6 mode. They said that it's not they didn't really say they're not going to do it but they also like I told Aaron Keller told me he was like we're trying to figure out things and one of the ideas we had was a 6 person stack or 6 person team where one person is kind of just spectating and you can rotate in and out. Which is cool but ultimately like the thing about it is it's also kind of necessary and it makes a lot of sense. They need to update that launcher. They need to create a common ground for everyone. So I'm not surprised. I am slightly sad to see it go away. And I assume you're voting right now to drop Lucy James from your group, right? It remains to be seen. There's a few others as well who need to start pulling their weight. I understand, Simon cardi. Yeah, exactly. Andy Cortez, what's your read on the move from 66 to 5 E 5 and the fact that it's going away Overwatch one? I'm with Tam. I'm not surprised by it. I understand the sort of thought process behind it. But I do see this getting added as an arcade mode in the future as some sort of custom game. It does just, it becomes weird in the sense that I think a lot of the player base will become, I think this is something that's kind of like going to divide and anger some of the players who maybe don't like the move to 5 V 5. And we're completely fine with it. I think this is something that makes total sense because when war zone changes a new map, the old map goes away and it's no longer accessible. It sounds something I'm surprised by whatsoever, but I do think a lot of the player base will be alienated by it at first and then eventually we'll kind of just get over it and play Overwatch 5G 5. So I'm not surprised by it, but it is kind of a bummer and I hope that we do see some sort of custom game modes in the future. Timothy Getty. For Tim and Andy, are you guys, I know you guys are really big Overwatch one fans. I know you've had some experience with Overwatch two so far. You guys in favor of the 5G 5 overall. Yeah, I like the way it plays. They've made some Overwatch one got to a place where it was it felt it didn't feel great to play for a really long time because of the shields and like the AOE stuff and a lot of other factors, whereas they've clearly looked at that stuff now and for 5 V 5 feels way better immediately at a cost of one person, but they're skirmishes feel less drawn out. It feels more exciting. It feels like there's more of a push and pull again, which is really crucial to having these matches be fun to play and also fun to watch, which is exactly what they need if they want to get the Overwatch league kind of rolling again. But yeah, I'm in favor of it. Yeah, it also doesn't necessarily feel like all players need to be completely in sync with each other because a lot of players like to just hop on solo queue and necessarily playing with random people on the Internet. So I think blizzard sort of thought process behind that and not having to have everybody be perfectly on comms on mic with each other. I like the idea that players and different heroes can kind of pop up at pop off and have their hero moments without needing perfect execution of a strategy or a play, you know, I think this is a lot better of a move. And it's also just less chaotic. There's less numbers to kind of keep track of. And the Q times are going to be a lot better now because nobody wanted to play two tanks, so people were playing tanks because they just wanted to get into a game and then they weren't playing them well because they just weren't very good at the role in they didn't care much about the role either. Final question for you guys because the next one's just about unopened loot boxes, which I think is super straightforward news story. But Andy, how quickly do you think before they screw up and don't hit this every 9 weeks they put out seasonal content? Oh shit, yeah. Part of me has to assume that they've been stewing on this for quite some time. I'm sure Tim knows a lot more than I do, but Overwatch one was a fucking desert for a long time. There was no content. There was like an occasional skirmish map would pop up and a skirmish skirmish map is something where you would play a death match on or a free for all. It's just one of those free kind of fun arcade maps. But Overwatch one got zero content for a very long time. And I would love to hope that that was because they had been working on this road map for a very long time for Overwatch too. I feel like in theory it's amazing and it's perfect, but sure, I could see it dropping out of the 9 week time frame maybe by like battle pass number three or two or something like that. I hadn't even considered how excited I was though. The other day when somebody in Twitch chat was like, Andy, how stoked are you about this battle pass? And I was like, you know what? I feel like battle passes in a lot of games are it's usually, I'd say halo was probably the first battle pass that I had experienced that wasn't a battle Royale. And playing battle royales can get just really draining because it's, you know, I think a bit more stressful of an all or nothing type of mode. And a bit more frustrating and I feel like I drop off of playing battle royales more than I would an Overwatch where I'm just kind of going match by max by match. And I am like ridiculously excited to level up a battle pass. Like the idea of just kind of getting XP and going match to match and trying to get more XP and hopefully there's not halo like objectives where it's like use this hero or get because I know that that kind of ruins the playing experience for other players but I'm super stoked on it and I hope that it's at least worth it and it's got good stuff in the battle pass to make me want to continue to level it up. Don't forget marvel's Avengers has a battle pass for every character Andy that you can go through and do too that it is a battle Royale. I forget how good it is. We got mighty Thor next week. A lot of stuff's happening over there. Tam is excited. I'm excited to be in your chat..

"Accordingly. That's my life. Number one on the rope rapport. We have some brands making new Overwatch two details for you. Number one, we'll start over at IGN dot com or Ryan leston rights. It'll replace the original game at launch. It's official Overwatch two will fully replace the original Overwatch at launch. During a Reddit AMA Overwatch two director Aaron Keller confirmed that the upcoming Overwatch sequel will replace the original live service when the game launches in October. Quote, when Overwatch two launches on October 4th, it will, it will be a replacement for the current live service he confirmed. I, J the seeking clarification with blizzard to confirm whether the original game will still be playable since Overwatch still, be playable once Overwatch two arrives. When the sequel was originally announced back in August last year, blizzard claimed that Overwatch and Overwatch two players would be able to play side by side when playing the same game modes. The original plan allowed Overwatch players to play on the brand new Overwatch two maps and as the new map heroes. Then game director Jeff Kaplan said it was a quote shared multiplayer environment where no one gets left behind end quote. In other words, multiplayer PVP would have impossible across the shoe titles. Now, it looks as though Overwatch will, in fact, be left behind. It's likely that Overwatch will essentially become Overwatch two, which was already planned to retain old legacy content while adding new maps and systems. The fact that Overwatch two will be free to play means this should be an easy enough transition since no players need to pay for the new game. But this change means it looks as though 6 V 6 Overwatch is a thing of the past. As Overwatch two uses a 5 V 5 model. In fact, it's likely that the transition from 6 V 6 to 5 V 5 is the thing that made the two versions of the game incompatible. Quote, we're using the term early access to indicate that this is just the start of many new things coming to the games that Overwatch twos director Aaron Keller on Reddit. We're launching with new heroes, maps, and features, but there are even more of these coming seasonally. Every 9 weeks. We recently released a road map detailing some of this content with a new hero coming in seasons.

We also with whenever we see Netflix geeked week like there's always all these brand new animes that are, you know, that fucking dragon age and all these sort of different properties are getting made into TV shows that are just kind of seems like it makes sense and that's the nice space to take over. I think they keep that stuff in-house in their game for as long as possible. I talked to when I talked to Aaron I was like, with the PVE stuff, can we expect more of your shorts and origin story style stuff that people love in the game and he was kind of like, yeah, there's going to be more of that stuff there. I feel like PVE is where they explore a lot of that stuff and they really beef up the cinematic universe of it. Element of it. I think it's going to be something. I can't think of a single blues property outside of what a Warcraft a movie that has been adapted in a way that indicates that they're willing to do more the World of Warcraft movie was fine. I've heard. But I don't think that as well. I don't think that adds on it with riot, but then arcane did a lot for a lot of people, so perhaps they look at it now and they're like, hey, we should just do that. We can make that happen. I would love to see them do that stuff. I would love to see them take the visions approach and be like, hey, studio that made my hierarchy. Here's Overwatch, go and do it. Hell yeah. I meant to say, yeah, right is kind of the big, the big sort of missing name from all the stuff that I was listing right is definitely I feel like taking over what blizzard has wanted to do has wanted to be in the past decade or so. And I think that they are maybe quaking in their boots, Greg Miller. I think they're a little crazy. I think they're quite in there, but I think they're butcher quake in. So I would love to see them kind of take that over and whatever Tam just said right now really broke my heart. I'll be ruined you. Well, gentlemen, thank you for your time. We'll see you later. Thank you. Remember, remember the work had always used more heroes..

"Holy shit. They're into it anyway. Tam, let's start with you. What do you do you care at all about Overwatch one going away and then how do you feel about moving to the 5 feet 5 model? So do I care about Overwatch one going away yes for the sake of a game preservation, the Overwatch one experience is now unique. It is going it is a different kind of experience. It being 6 V 6. I think that I would care. I'm caring more about it knowing that Overwatch has 5 V 5 and there's currently no way for my group of 6 friends who I constantly would play with that includes Andy to jump into that game and play together like the biggest issue I feel like the community is having right now is in the switch to 5 V 5, one person in an Overwatch friend circle needs to be benched and that sucks. And also like the unique dynamics of a 6 V 6 game almost from a historical perspective and a game design perspective. There's a lot to look at Overwatch one and how it evolved. To analyze and pick apart in the 6 V 6 context and that's probably going to be overwritten. I hope that what they do is I imagine someone out there is probably going to archive it in some fashion and now we have that thing where they bring back wow classic and they bring back Diablo of old and my hope is that blizzard does it in a way where they do sunset Overwatch one but they do it in a way where a few years down the line they can be like, oh watch classic is being rolled into Overwatch two or we're bringing that back so I do care about it. Yeah, so they did talk about some stuff that they didn't say they're going to make a 6 V 6 mode. They said that it's not they didn't really say they're not going to do it but they also like I told Aaron Keller told me he was like we're trying to figure out things and one of the ideas we had was a 6 person stack or 6 person team where one person is kind of just spectating and you can rotate in and out. Which is cool but ultimately like the thing about it is it's also kind of necessary and it makes a lot of sense. They need to update that launcher. They need to create a common ground for everyone. So I'm not surprised. I am slightly sad to see it go away. And I assume you're voting right now to drop Lucy James from your group, right? It remains to be seen. There's a few others as well who need to start pulling their weight. I understand, Simon cardi. Yeah, exactly. Andy Cortez, what's your read on the move from 66 to 5 E 5 and the fact that it's going away Overwatch one? I'm with Tam. I'm not surprised by it. I understand the sort of thought process behind it. But I do see this getting added as an arcade mode in the future as some sort of custom game. It does just, it becomes weird in the sense that I think a lot of the player base will become, I think this is something that's kind of like going to divide and anger some of the players who maybe don't like the move to 5 V 5. And we're completely fine with it. I think this is something that makes total sense because when war zone changes a new map, the old map goes away and it's no longer accessible. It sounds something I'm surprised by whatsoever, but I do think a lot of the player base will be alienated by it at first and then eventually we'll kind of just get over it and play Overwatch 5G 5. So I'm not surprised by it, but it is kind of a bummer and I hope that we do see some sort of custom game modes in the future. Timothy Getty. For Tim and Andy, are you guys, I know you guys are really big Overwatch one fans. I know you've had some experience with Overwatch two so far. You guys in favor of the 5G 5 overall. Yeah, I like the way it plays. They've made some Overwatch one got to a place where it was it felt it didn't feel great to play for a really long time because of the shields and like the AOE stuff and a lot of other factors, whereas they've clearly looked at that stuff now and for 5 V 5 feels way better immediately at a cost of one person, but they're skirmishes feel less drawn out. It feels more exciting. It feels like there's more of a push and pull again, which is really crucial to having these matches be fun to play and also fun to watch, which is exactly what they need if they want to get the Overwatch league kind of rolling again. But yeah, I'm in favor of it. Yeah, it also doesn't necessarily feel like all players need to be completely in sync with each other because a lot of players like to just hop on solo queue and necessarily playing with random people on the Internet. So I think blizzard sort of thought process behind that and not having to have everybody be perfectly on comms on mic with each other. I like the idea that players and different heroes can kind of pop up at pop off and have their hero moments without needing perfect execution of a strategy or a play, you know, I think this is a lot better of a move. And it's also just less chaotic. There's less numbers to kind of keep track of. And the Q times are going to be a lot better now because nobody wanted to play two tanks, so people were playing tanks because they just wanted to get into a game and then they weren't playing them well because they just weren't very good at the role in they didn't care much about the role either. Final question for you guys because the next one's just about unopened loot boxes, which I think is super straightforward news story. But Andy, how quickly do you think before they screw up and don't hit this every 9 weeks they put out seasonal content? Oh shit, yeah. Part of me has to assume that they've been stewing on this for quite some time. I'm sure Tim knows a lot more than I do, but Overwatch one was a fucking desert for a long time. There was no content. There was like an occasional skirmish map would pop up and a skirmish skirmish map is something where you would play a death match on or a free for all. It's just one of those free kind of fun arcade maps. But Overwatch one got zero content for a very long time. And I would love to hope that that was because they had been working on this road map for a very long time for Overwatch too. I feel like in theory it's amazing and it's perfect, but sure, I could see it dropping out of the 9 week time frame maybe by like battle pass number three or two or something like that. I hadn't even considered how excited I was though. The other day when somebody in Twitch chat was like, Andy, how stoked are you about this battle pass? And I was like, you know what? I feel like battle passes in a lot of games are it's usually, I'd say halo was probably the first battle pass that I had experienced that wasn't a battle Royale. And playing battle royales can get just really draining because it's, you know, I think a bit more stressful of an all or nothing type of mode. And a bit more frustrating and I feel like I drop off of playing battle royales more than I would an Overwatch where I'm just kind of going match by max by match. And I am like ridiculously excited to level up a battle pass. Like the idea of just kind of getting XP and going match to match and trying to get more XP and hopefully there's not halo like objectives where it's like use this hero or get because I know that that kind of ruins the playing experience for other players but I'm super stoked on it and I hope that it's at least worth it and it's got good stuff in the battle pass to make me want to continue to level it up. Don't forget marvel's Avengers has a battle pass for every character Andy that you can go through and do too that it is a battle Royale. I forget how good it is. We got mighty Thor next week. A lot of stuff's happening over there. Tam is excited. I'm excited to be in your chat..

"Cast a giant bomb dot com is where you send the emails. To us. And we will take them. We ran out of time last week and didn't get to take any. So I've got some that were pulled for last week's show. And some that were pulled for this week's show. And we'll see where we get to with these emails. All right. How about it? Okay. Lex from cork Ireland, writes in to talk about some Overwatch here. He says, the substance line here is Overwatch league really does seem to be fucking up Overwatch two. Oh, this is something we kind of speculated that maybe the eSports vacation of Overwatch was making it less fun for a real people. The Overwatch league restarted this weekend after 222 days of no matches. They are the only franchised eSport therefore the only eSport with off seasons at all, really. The live show exclusively on YouTube attached around 90,000 viewers live was dropped around 70,000 after some bad technical problems during the first match. Last week, which is now three weeks ago or whatever. We were wondering why Overwatch two is releasing now in the state that it's in and says it's because of the league needing to start again and Aaron Keller, the current lead on Overwatch two has pretty much said as much. Within the community, the 5 V 5 change is also widely thought to be from frustration from the loudest and highest level players, all the abilities that made the first game fun casually when brought up to a high level caused huge frustration. Characters of the shields and crowd control abilities met the skills of the E sportsman, had less chances to shine in favor of grouping up in clumps of unkillable tanks with healers pumping up their health. This weekend saw a lot of fun individual plays from players popping off on widowmaker and soldier 76, but it begs the question what makes Overwatch interesting when it's going so far in the shooter direction and away from its original selling point. From the heady days of everything being sold as an eSport seemed like the worst fit to you or killed your interest in an otherwise fun game. That was even insightful commentary from our eSports commentator lex from cork Ireland. Thank you. Yeah. Insightful yeah, I think that's been you're going to find a lot of different opinions on the way some of these games are going, but I do feel like I've seen a real outpouring of people saying, hey, the direction this game is going in is only making its problems worse. And yeah, I mean, they do make a fair amount of money on the Overwatch league. And I think that for me, I want games that I can play for years after their release and have a fun time online, and I realize that's a very hard thing to do. Because eventually a lot of the lower skill players are going to fall away and you're going to be left with The Killers and me as someone who comes in like, I have played this game in 8 months. Am I going to have a good time? Fuck, no, I'm not. But that's the ideals. I just want to be able to enjoy a video game. That's not to say I don't want to take it seriously. And all that sort of stuff. I'm okay taking it seriously when I'm playing it, but it's not, it's never going to be a lifestyle for me. Like that specific aspect of gaming is just not why I'm here. I like to play a wide variety of games. I don't just want to play 600 hours of some competitive shooter and not touch anything else. People love to do that. I think that's fucking crazy. Sure, good on them. Especially if they're able to make some kind of money doing it, I guess. I don't know. That's the other kind of larger I don't know. It's interesting looking at eSports today when you think about the decades of what eSports has often been. I don't think it's that much different, like it's much more legitimized now, but I think that's just because people stopped fighting it. And more companies started realizing there was money in it for them directly. So like Activision running the Overwatch league themselves and all of this other stuff makes a lot more sense than MLG or some other fly by night organization popping up and being like, we're going to run tournaments and everybody's going to be rich. Especially me, mister cocaine. And then raising a bunch of funding, exploiting a bunch of kids that are good at a video game. And then disappearing in the night or something. Like the eSports to crypto bro fucking pipeline, I feel like that's one of those like, hey, this is one circle kind of Venn diagrams of just like the same energy as pouring off of both of those things. And it kind of always has been there's some eSports stuff that is less douchey these days, but the underpinnings of it still feel really creepy to me in a way that going back to a conversation ago, but I feel like the way that games tend to evolve in this genre, it seems to me as someone who's really outside of fighting and competitive eSports Y stuff is that a game can start casual and become eSports, but once it's pretty eSports, it's hard to make it approachable to casual people who don't want to be eSports Y about it and I feel like that's just the nature of the beast and I don't know how one would, you know, uncomplicated and uncouple it from like the high level technical stuff once it gets like kind of introduced to it. Like I feel like smash brothers over the years like I used to be way into the first mesh waiting to the second smash started petering out by the next one and then finally the last one that came out and now there's like 600 characters and I'm just completely overwhelmed. So I don't know. I wish there was a way to make it more approachable but it even feels like casual players are so much more high level like I used to be able to play smash brothers at people's Christmas parties or something like that. And now it's like I'm just not even going to try because everyone has learned the tech even like people that are not even like big into the actual arena competition era area of it all. Yeah, I think smash is an interesting I think it's kind of it can be a poster child for this sort of thing in some ways. By virtue of how prevalent the concept of playing without items has become it's fun it's a game that was always meant to just be like, here's a bunch of weird chaos. It was meant to have some Mario party esque bullshit in there. Fuck it. Here's a weird item that's going to turn the tables and hey, it's goofy. Have a good time. Like Mario kart or something like here's your fucking weird blue shell situation that turns the situation around for you and all that sort of stuff and the way that that community has embraced this other mode of that game as here's the serious way to play has then gone because a lot of people saying like 90,000 people are watching these Overwatch streams. The thing that happens this happens with fighting game tournaments a lot too where you see someone do really well with the character that you maybe play a little bit of or something like that. But you see them do some shit and you're like, oh, I can do that. Oh, that's what I need to do. And so your own play style changes to kind of fit the more of that eSports Y kind of mold because that's the tech of the month or whatever. And then it'll get patched again and things will change and whatever whatever. But you have situations where you'll probably like, I'm sure players like we'll watch an Overwatch match and be like, oh shit, these three characters, if we do this with this, we can do this. And so you see that team comp probably roll out big. You hear about this in dota a lot too, where everyone after the international goes and tries to do all the shit they saw watching the international. I don't think that's necessarily a.

He'd send Kevin to Japan to go to Super Nintendo world. I think he said he's still send me. Yeah, but now we can all just go to Hollywood. Now we can all just go tell each table. Yeah, much, much easier flight to deal with. Logistically, then wait for Hollywood. Go to both. I'll go to both. Think about this. You go with me down there, right? Since you were Nintendo world, then we go to portillo. I gotcha. I turned it around. Yeah, that's right. That's a 2023 apparently. We'll see. I don't believe any release date about anything in real life anymore. You know what I mean? Joe, people are trying to book me for the Comic-Con. I'm like, okay. Let's see. Let's see who's gonna creep up by then. You know what I mean? I'll see you at E three. Okay, great. Joe, will you be going to Super Nintendo world? If it opens up in Hollywood, I definitely will. Actually kind of had a trip planned on the books to go visit it out in Tokyo, but yeah, this was much easier, much easier flight. So yeah, my check it out. Okay. I want to go back Tokyo and I want to bring you Kevin. We got to go, we got to go. You got to see Japan. I'd love to. I'm very excited to go Tokyo. Great to be here. You probably have a lot of good Japan stories. I imagine you have a wonderful wonderful wonderful story. Great place. Number four on the rope for report. Overwatch two beta is coming soon as blizzard decouples PVP and PVE to release content faster. This is Chris Pereira over at GameSpot dot com. Blizzard has shared new details regarding its plans for Overwatch two, which include getting the PVP component of the shooter into players hands while it continues to work on the PVE side. That will begin with a closed alpha today followed by a beta that includes a wider pool of players starting in April. Game director Aaron Keller shared the information as part of a new developer update video. The main takeaway is the quote decoupling of the PVP and PVE aspects of Overwatch two, which is meant to, quote, get new PVP content into your hands sooner while we continue to work on PVE according to a company blog post. The closed alpha test for Overwatch twos PVP that begins today will likely not be something you can participate in. It will feature a blizzard employees Overwatch league players, and a few other select groups ahead of a beta that will start in late April for PC players in all regions. That April test will be a closed beta, but you can now sign up to request access to it on the game's official website, access will come in waves, so even if you don't get in right away, you may still get in later. Overwatch two does not have a release date alongside Diablo four blizzard delayed its release late last year, and we may not see either game launch until 2023. All of this comes amidst the ongoing Microsoft acquisition of Activision Blizzard, which itself follows disturbing reports of a toxic work environment at the company. Joe was Overwatch every one of your games? Yes, absolutely. Really? And this is a rotten news story. I don't even know why you put these news stories out. Hey, guess what? A bunch of people are going to play a game you want to play. And you can't play it. But at some point, you could sign up to play it. And maybe we'll think about you playing it. Don't shoot the messenger. Don't shoot the same. I mean, I know you didn't do this. Somebody else wrote this. I bet he I bet he has access to this playtest. He's just stunting on everybody. This is my story. I got access to what you don't have, boom. Suck it. I mean, that's what the story feels like, man. I don't know. I hear what you're saying. I hear what you're saying. I doubt Chris Pereira at GameSpot has access. And if he does, we can have it revoked if you'd like. Yeah, we should. I mean, a little weird, you know? Making everybody else feel bad. Nobody gets a positive buzz off this. Nobody's like, dang a bunch of professionals and people that work for the company and close to the company get to play, and I don't. Great for them. Nobody says that. If you do your weird, all right? That's not right. That's fair. Little selfish. You're just, you're just, Joe. And I appreciate that about you. You know what I mean? I have put in a message here to more Hussein, who I do believe is, of course, the editor in chief of GameSpot dot com forever and always. And so if Chris Pereira has access to this Overwatch beta, we will have it removed. Don't worry. Yeah, that appreciate that. We'll get that removed from him. It also like that Chris. I remember everybody. I know what you're playing that. Kind of promo on Chris Pereira right now. I'll stop. I'll get out of the way. Listen, Chris, I get it. You have special access to certain things. You feel kind of special about it. So you mock up this news story telling the world that they can't play something that you can. But you don't really tell them that you can play it. But they know that there's certain individuals chosen ones that can. And I bet Chris, I bet you count yourself among those people. You know, I've seen a lot of scumbags in my time, but it's a quiet ones like you, Chris. It's a quiet ones like you that I despise.

"Use my authority as president to get them out of the way. Who's the bully? Its president, Joe Biden, that very comment again within 10. Seconds he contradicts himself. Pretending to be on the side of schools and teachers and students and intervening. I mean, there's so many things that were wrong with this speech, it passes no constitutional muster. I don't know if he has legal experts or advisers that go over his speeches, write them for him. They're morons. None of this is constitutionally compliant. None of this falls within the purview or power of the president of the United States. For him to go out and for about a half an hour today. Declare war on the unvaccinated is beyond the pale. It is unlike anything I've encountered in the 40 years. I can remember President making speeches now there was a time during World War two. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt enacted some pretty draconian measures, including the Japanese internment camps. It was a time of war and a lot of times constitutional rights are suspended like habeas corpus during the Civil War by Abraham Lincoln. Those are extraordinary times, and some may argue we live in extraordinary times now. With covid, but There is the confluence of individual liberties. And the governments. Power to tell you what they want you to do to force you to do what they want you to do. And I can't go for that. Brian Shul in here taking you the rest of the way. Dan Campus show. To those of you have already called in. I will get to your calls. I'll try to do it right now. And throughout the rest of the program, But I am flying solo. I do not have any Aaron Keller to screen these calls to the ones that have already screen. Let's go to them now. Paul in Denver. Welcome to the Dan Caplis Show. Thank you, Ryan. So here's some national relevant statistics. And this just came out from the CDC. It's from their morbidity and mortality Weekly report and it reviews the data. Brockovich from August 2022 August 2021. They're about 73 million Children that is under the age of 18, the United States out during that year. There were 1790 hospitalizations of those kids. That's it. 17, 91,000 and 90 out of 73 million now. The average stay of those hospitals, not the average. The median stay of those hospitalizations was 2 to 3 days. That's number one number two out of those 1790 hospitalizations. There were eight Deaths in the entire year. Right? It's eight deaths out of 1790 out of 73 million Yes, it's crazy now. As Dan said the courts have given a lot of latitude for declaration of health emergencies. But at some point someone in the court has to be willing to say just because you say to help emergency doesn't make it so right, particularly for Everybody for all groups. Um, you you could make. Maybe at this point, probably not an argument for You know, Cold morbidity, seniors something along those lines and by the way, They're just starting a study for menstruating. Those young girls who are just starting to menstruate and relating to the vaccinations. They're just starting the studies. They have no idea what the the impact will be on their fertility, etcetera, And I also just read an article a park a headline. I didn't read the article. U. S. Postal Service workers are not included in President Biden Federal vaccine requirement that's political and you know that? Well, of course it's all political. So it's insane when you know what the stats are. Um, Yeah, he's not even included the natural immunity. So how you can justify that. Is beyond me, particularly with uh, Israel's research on that. There's a lot of data on that already. Oh, you've got a lot of great information here. Let me just dovetail off that to kind of Round out the edges. If you will, on the math and the science. What we're involved in here is a battle between logic and emotion. The logic of what you just stated the math, the science, the data, the facts. On covid as it pertains to Children who do not have comorbidities. Covid is offend effectively and essentially harmless in almost universally every single case. And while every death is tragic, like, Dan says, in Colorado and nationwide and worldwide You cannot plan and dictate public health policy. On the basis of such a tiny percentage of the population. Otherwise we could not live in freedom on any subject. Drunk driving. You could use that automobile accidents in general. Smoking cancer. Are we going to refuse to give hospital beds to smokers now? Because they had a choice? They didn't have to smoke. They chose to do what? They got. Lung cancer. They live with that choice. We still treat them in hospitals. We don't turn them away. The way Jimmy Kimmel and some of these other nutjobs want to do with unvaccinated covid patients. And then I want to draw quadrant here. I wanted to do this. Last time I filled in for Dan. But Dana lash just tweeted about this, and it goes to a central point. Which is Covid transmission. They've already told us vaccinated. People can both get covid and transmit Covid. Now for vaccinated persons. The symptoms the after effects will be far less in most cases, so if a vaccinated person gives it to another vaccinated person, it's quite Likely that neither person will know that they had it in the first place. If a vaccinated person gives it to an unvaccinated person to me. That's on the vaccine. Unvaccinated person who made that choice put themselves in that position. If we did a child under 12, then you make special exceptions. Arrangements for those kids. If it unvaccinated person gets an unvaccinated person infected. That's a that's a race to the bottom. That's Darwinism. I hate to be that cold and simple about it, but that's where we're at now. The four quadrants vaccinated, getting vaccinated, person infected vaccinated, getting unvaccinated affected. Unvaccinated getting vaccinated affected. I'm not worried about that. I'm vaccinated. If I'm around an unvaccinated person, I do not care. Not one whit. And unvaccinated, infecting other unvaccinated. This fear makes no sense. When Joe Biden says we'll have this clip when we come back. We've got to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated. Why Were vaccinated. That was the whole point of the exercise. Ryan shoeing.

Going to get her reaction from a legal perspective to President Donald Trump's efforts, filing a class action lawsuit against Facebook, Google Twitter all the tech giants. Trying to take them down, and even with the power and gravitas of a former president in Donald Trump and a multi millionaire billionaire in Donald Trump, Taking on those tech giants is no small task and are their first Amendment issues at play. There are varying legal opinions on this. We'll get her reaction to that as well localizing it from her perspective. Little bit later, about a half hour from right now, but where we begin today. Going to listen to a series of sound bites, and this is something that over the weekend Anybody who listens to the show on a regular basis, or even if you're tuning up for the first time, I'll give you a brief recap. My strong anti Communism, feelings run deeply. And when I see somebody like Senator Bernie Sanders advocate for what he calls Democratic socialism All that is is communism lite. We have Communists. Now out in the open here in Denver. Candy Seated. Baca Ring A bell, An avowed Communist runs for City Council gets elected. I mean, these types of thoughts were unthinkable to me going back to the 19 eighties. When? As a young student at Element Elementary School I remember and you might as well doing the drills where they would have you go under your desk. Kind of put your head between your knees and the old joke is Kiss your rear end Goodbye. In case of a nuclear attack from the U. S. S. R. You know, I was inundated with pop culture references. You could look at Rocky Four Rocky against Yvon Drago. From the Soviet Union, the battle between freedom and communism, capitalism and communism. This is not limited to just the Soviet Union, although they were the manifestation of it during the Cold War, and particularly in the 19 eighties before President Ronald Reagan, the greatest president of our lifetime, in my opinion, and probably many in our listening audience as well. Had the ongoing talks of denuclearization with Mikhail Gorbachev. Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall. Standing in front of the Berlin Wall dividing East and West Germany. That had been long overdue. And Ronald Reagan. Although he takes a lot of criticism for what he knew what he didn't know, over his eight years in office, I mean, you could take Ronald Reagan and what he knew what he didn't know about the Iran Contra affair. And compare that to what Joe Biden knows and doesn't know now, but we'll anything any topic pick one in particular. And it's laughable The comparison there, But what Ronald Reagan did know was he had a sense of the moment he had a feeling for timing, and he knew communism. Was on the way out. At least he thought he knew. At least I thought I knew at that time the Soviet Union crumbled under the weight of itself. It could no longer be isolated from the world, the western world the capitalist world the competitive world and continue to exist. As an entity as a country as a nation. As a people people didn't want communism anymore. Mikhail Gorbachev knew that Whether it was Paris Troika. His list of reforms You go on down every itemized Thing on that particular list. Gorbachev. New Freedom was coming in Russia, or at least he anticipated it and Boris Yeltsin would become president of the new Russian Federation, Russia would emerge out of the ashes of the Soviet Union. There was even a time we're coming up on the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. When the Olympic Games didn't have a country for people who lived in what is now Russia to represent, If you remember that was the unified team, and they had a white Olympic flag with the Olympic logo on it because they weren't quite Russia yet, and they were work worth the Soviet Union anymore. I believe it was the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. Where that transition was taking place. So again when I was growing up communism It was a punch line if I thought somebody was out of date and out of touch and didn't know something about a particular topic or didn't like something that pretty much every American likes. Would ask jokingly. What are you a communist? Now That's not.

"The University of Colorado, 30 years in the ring, fighting for truth, justice and the American way. And happily, Yeah. Brian shoeing filling in for Dan Caplis on this midweek edition of the Dan capitalist show. Thanks to all of you joining us from up and down the front range Cheyenne, Wyoming all the way down to the New Mexico border. And all points in between. Aaron Keller is the Robin to my Batman today, and he'll be taking your calls. 3037138255. That's 303713. 82 55. No talk to text stuff today. I just I don't have enough hands. Okay? I'm running the board. I'm running the sound I'm doing the social media. Come on this microphone. Erin's answering the phones. That's important. I don't want to diminish that whatsoever. But there's only so much I can do. But I do want to hear from you 3037138255 topics of the day we have many to get to. And I guess that I think you're going to find fascinating if you don't follow him already. On Twitter. He'll be joining us in about half an hour before 36 Mountain time. His name is storage. Hashmi. You can follow him on Twitter at storage A Hashmi H A. S H m. I He is the creator of the list on Twitter. He is recognized by the likes of Jake Tapper on CNN. People don't want to be on his list. What is it? He'll explain it. Later in the program, the cliff notes version basically, people who send out tweets that probably should not have just sent out that tweet and would like to take it back, But Screenshots last forever. Karen told me that one a while ago, and it's true. So if you try to delete a tweet out there, or maybe even a Facebook post if somebody saw it and took the time to screenshot, I have sour news for you, Jack. That is in the ether forever to whoever wants to keep it so lesson learned that Sarah she's a former writer for The Washington Examiner. He has since left that position. He now is part of the habit. Bro's and their power. Our podcast is tonight, I would highly recommend that you check it out. It's a rather r rated version of what we do here. But they have a lot of fun. Um, tremendous amount of what we call in the business show culture. And insightful and sometimes, uh, inciting commentary that tends to lean right, but I would not classify Suraj individually as a conservative. His partner in crime, J. I would and he's hilarious. These guys crack me up each and every week. It's Wednesdays at 10 P.m. Eastern time. Eight P.m. Mountain time. And sometimes they'll go on for two hours or so, And that's the thing about podcast is there's really no limit, and once you go live, you just keep going, I guess to be run out of steam, and that's what they do. And they drink. Um, their podcast during the program, which tends to add to the hijinks. The tomfoolery and the shenanigans all three in one so we'll talk to storage, coming up his thoughts and comments on the corporate media. The direction that it's going and it's going downhill in a hurry. And it kind of leads me into my introductory topic for today, and that is the left knows it's losing. Now this night might not be true everywhere in the United States across the board, but in general We're talking about messaging, hearts and minds. They know they're losing, and they're starting to freak out a little bit about it. And how do I know this? I'm going to cite several examples here in the next half hour. We're going to take the rest of this segment. I'm going to go over a few very specific buzzwords, punchlines catchphrases. Things that can help turn a campaign. From losing one to a winning one or in the case of Democrats right now. From a winning message. We're not Donald Trump. To a losing one and its multifaceted It's not just one thing. It's not just one brick in the wall that's out of place here for the left and for the Democrats. The first one, and I saw this one coming from a mile away, and I bet a lot of you did, too. And we witnessed it right here in Denver with the antifa Black lives matter. Unrest will call it to be kind downtown. The defacing of our state Capitol. The graffiti everywhere the statues knocked down and Governor Jared Polis Mayor Michael Hancock doing little to nothing about it. Not even speaking out against it. Taking days to respond to it. Did Governor Poloz before he came on 6 30 K. How? In the morning here with Ross Kaminsky? Oh, yeah, Of course. We condemn it. Really? Really. And we had a January six style. Right wing Michigan militia type raid of the Capitol building like we saw in Washington, D. C. Do you think? Do you think Governor Polish would have gone to an underground bunker? For several days and not commented on the matter. I highly doubt it. But what came out of that? And this momentum from the tragic, unfortunate unnecessary death of George Floyd. And Derek Chauvin's been held accountable for that. To a fair trial jury of his peers guilty verdict sentencing by a sentencing by a judge. All of the above. He's paid. Hit the price and adjust one for what he did to George Floyd over the course of 9.5 minutes. But that does not Turn into defund the police that mantra that label Democrats on the far left. We're so proud of it. They wrap their arms around it. They wanted to defund police everywhere. They wanted to reallocate funds from the police to social workers. Yeah, we have an active shooter and progress. Send a social worker. Let's see how that works out. Oh, that That doesn't work. Oh, Well, Elise Jordan of MSNBC realizes this and delivers an ominous message in the wake of the New York City mayoral primary. On the Democratic side, defund the police is a losing Message for Democrats. We see that in this race, and we're going to see it in other races where you know, as Americans are responding to increase of crime in their communities, and you look at what happened in New York City. And it played out on the ground here among some of the most liberal voters in the country, But they want to safe city and they want the police to be adequately funded. Uh huh. Right there. That is a key overlap in the Venn diagram, and that includes I believe a lot of voters right here in Colorado and in Denver proper if you live in Denver right now, even if you're left leaning, and that's fine. It doesn't mean that you're all aboard the defund the police train You want law and order in the streets. You want criminals to pay a price. You don't want people like Rashida to liebe tweeting the following This is what she said. This is going back to April 12th of this year. It wasn't an accident. Policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist. Dante, right, was.

Maybe once every six months or so that unifies everybody, You know that the haters And they love it. The people who you know, tend to like me more. They love it. I love it because it is the Dan on prescription drugs show. And I love it because I'm so proud of accepting phenomenal Surgeon, Dr Eric Gagne. Oral surgeon, You know, probably. I mean, you may be the same way like a kid. I played sports. I lived life kind of leading with my face. And so you know, my mouth got pretty banged up. And eventually I said, You know what? I'm a young man. It's time to fix all this. So I've been going through this long process of of extractions and bone grafting and implants and all that other stuff because I God willing plan to live another uh, what is, uh, I am a girl called 30 years. My next 30 years. That's a good song. Have you ever heard it? I was told there would not be math. Yes. So I'm hoping for at least another 30 so Wanted to get it right. So I've been going through this long process that Dr Eragon, who is amazing, has made so much easier than it normally would be, but He told me you will not be able to do your show today. You know too many prescription narcotics, you know, won't be able to do the show today. So I take great pride in being here right now. That's all I'm going to say. And, uh, because I don't loose and I'm not judging people. Who do you know, I Don't do drugs. I don't drink much, even though I like it. And I have just kind of a supernatural capacity to drink and not have it affect me. I just don't drink much at all. So when they do have to use these prescription drugs, it's often Not the most entertaining thing Most people will see all day. So let's have some fun together this afternoon. 8554058255 the number if you hear like long stretches of silence. It's not any mistake Ryan made on the board or anything else like that. It just means I'm asleep. So 8554058255 the number but lots to talk about today and I want to open with this. This was not even on the agenda until Aaron Keller. Erin, answering the calls to in such a great job rarely yells at and you'd be right. Whence last time. Second hour yesterday. Aaron, very, very patient guy. He's just laughing. No, he's just wonderful to talk to. But anyway, on the way up in the elevator, Erin introduced this new topic that I hadn't even planned on. And, um And that is Apparently, and I'll quote the story right now, Um Hunter Biden. Hunter. Biden addressed his white lawyer as an N word multiple times used the phrase in connection with Barack Obama. And, uh and then just use the n word in various other context. I'll give you some of the headlines in the Daily Mail story. And then the question for you is going to be What should happen because of this. What does it mean about Joe Biden? What is the impact on Joe Biden and his presidency? What should it be? Is it a political issue? Text messages obtained by Daily Mail revealed Hunter Biden used the N word multiple times. In banter with his lawyer. President's son, 51 flippantly accused corporate Attorney George Cyrus, who is white, Um, with phrases, including true dad and word. In December. 2018 conversation, Hunter asked Missouri's How much money do I owe you? Because and word you better not be charging me Hennessy rates in another chat a month later, Hunter crack jokes about his Mhm. Penis and then told Missouri's I only love you because you're black. It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity, the Chicago lawyer replied. Good for him. The damning texts have emerged his days after his father, Joe Biden, give a speech to crane racism on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre. Biden us out to portray racial justice as a top priority. Hunter also saved a meme with the photo of his father hugging Barack Obama with a caption describing a joke. Obama going to miss you, man. Joe, can I say it just this once, Obama say. Go ahead, Joe. Joe, You're my n word Barack so anyway. That is the story. What does it mean? What should it mean? How should it impact Joe Biden? What does it mean about Joe Biden? 8554058255 the number text me at 57739 Started D a N Ryan shoeing one who ponders the deep meaning of everything, even things that should not be pond yet because they have no deep meaning true, true that Yeah. What? What is your conclusion? What do you make of? Well, I got to be Frank with you and air and I were just cracking up back here about the text that hunter sent. I mean, I put him in the same category. I was telling him this to about Billy Carter. Billy Beer. Remember that? Also? Yeah. Carter's brother Roger Clinton. You know, President Clinton's brother? Almost every president has an embarrassing relative. That's close to them. And is Joe Biden responsible for Hunter? You know you got to ask them is Joe Biden responsible for both? Because Beau Biden was Tremendous young man. He served our country. You know, he was involved in politics. I just I don't know how Beau Biden could turn out so well. And Hunter drugs. Yes, that's simple. Right It is. I mean, we all know everybody listening, knows. Drugs can ruin the strongest person absolutely, and it is not a lack of willpower that causes somebody to be unable to break that addiction. It is the chemical nature. That's what makes so evil flat out evil. What these drug dealers in Colorado are doing with the blessing of police in support of polish and cranking the potency of THC up so high To increase the chance of quicker addiction and deep, deep, deep addictions. So so, yeah, drugs, right drugs, Andrew flip the best person and you know what's going to be the fallout from this? I mean, we're talking about it today. It'll be yesterday's news tomorrow, and I think that will be the end of it. Yeah. And listen that the general idea that it should be no reflection on Joe Biden. I agree with 1000%. And but the difference here with Hunter Biden is unlike you know, Billy white shoes. No Carter and some of these other knuckleheads. I mean every Presidential family has probably had one somewhere. The difference here is that That the knucklehead hunter Biden Was engaged in corrupt acts with his father. Good point who is now the president. So in terms of the racial aspect of this, no that shouldn't reflect on Joe Biden in any way, shape or form. In my view in terms of the Idiocy part of this. Uh it is. It is another powerful piece of evidence that our president right now and he knows it. Our president is so vulnerable to blackmail that he cannot act freely to protect this nation against China and against Russia or any security services that Have the proof of the corruption that he was engaged in, along with his son and selling access and influence in China. And the irony of this is Dana always bring it full circle. This is the very thing that the Democrats in the media we're trying to tie trump to with Russia and collusion and impeachment that stemmed from that. Just imagine if you're listening right now that instead of Hunter Biden this was Donald Trump Jr. And instead of Joe Biden was President Trump and these text messages were exchanged and that language was used and all this circumstantial evidence surrounding the Biden family regarding China was applied to Trump. He'd be out of office. Yeah, right. People will be in jail and everything else. Yeah, absolutely. And folks know that you know which I think matters. You know the dilemma we find ourselves in and there is simply no answer for it right now. We just need to be aware of it and taken into account as we see. What would otherwise appear to be inexplicable Things. Inexplicable failure of Biden to act against China to Protect America Inexplicable failure. Biden to act against Russia to Protect America is.
