NaVi Joins Other Esports Organizations in Offering Cryptocurrency to Fans
"Natives 'vincere or commonly known as nabi is a major eastwards organization housed in ukraine they feel teams in doda fortnight rainbow. Six apex legends and pudgy. But they're best known for their ceus. Go team well. World rankings are a bit difficult to figure out during covid both esl and h ltv. Have knobby in the top five teams in the world today. They announced a new fan token on socio dot com. This token is designed to reward fans for interacting with the team allows them to have a minor say in how the team is being run now is praising each token of one. Us dollar and they say they will only offering. Maximum of five million tokens in total. It's similar to crowdfunding from fans of the organization but also gives an added layer of control beyond just kicking in some money for a small percentage of the org. Nabi is the third eastwards organization to join the socio platform. According to adam pitch a desert though. Happy birthday buddy. They joined spanish-based team. Hectic and not to legends g on the platform crypto can be controversial in east sports unicorn. The sports betting platform backed in part by mark. Cuban was fined a boatload of money by the government due to its crypto currency unit. Coin gold. now well. I don't claim to be a lawyer. That case determined that unicorn and used the crypto way to raise money but they didn't go through the proper steps that the us government if they wanted to do so now unicorn is a us based company so they're beholden to different laws. The knobby who were based in ukraine. Still we've seen how crypto currency can potentially cause problems in eastwards. It isn't handled properly by the organization offering both other organizations already on the socio platform. They're clearly backing it up with a legitimate partner. At least you'd hope so
New Rainbow Six Content Coming Out
"They also announced the UBISOFT team announce that there's new rainbow six content coming so I got the press release that I have here. I'm not GonNa read this whole thing. But essentially it's the second season for twenty twenty of siege for year five. That's your five that we're in now. It's wild I think it's the game is just better. Operation Steel wave is what it's called an introduces two new operators ace and Maluzi new attacker and a defender from Norway and South Africa in addition to an entirely reworked house map and a slew of gameplay changes. We won't go too deep into the weeds here except to say that they're looking for from factions. That I'm not too familiar with yeah. They're they're unfamiliar for shore. Ace looks like it. Uses the attacker from looks like a rescue unit of some type and then Melissa the defender has very interesting character design with her braids but aside from that. They're they're not very familiar at all like they don't clearly belong to any of the factions that we've seen yet do you thank her. Braid design is a South African thing. It's not a felony design It I mean it looks like it's too thick it like it. Looks like hair on top of hair so I I would imagine that it was just something that they didn't enemy urged didn't dumb draft out natively like it's something put on top of an existing players show. Now that I see it up close it does look like a wig. Looks LIKE CORN? Row Wig omos. Yeah it's I mean. They tried how how someone is is literally amazing air every time. How do you feel about this choice? Are You mad about it or you? Like I'll take the representation. Oh Immune it's always a mixed bag with hair and in representation for black women specifically but I mean they. They gave it a go and other other than our hair. She looks cool It's a very interesting gadget. That she has so I give them pass on this one. I have a lot of love remo sick. So they'll get the forgiveness this time. What's her gadget? I haven't looked at this. Just pull up the video so that Steiner and I can take a look. Yeah some operator. Gameplay yes so for from Lucy the defender Gadget is a banshee. Sonic defense and it looks a lot like diggers what I would. I forget what it's called. Whatever the anti-grenade where you can put it on walls or surfaces and it emits a pulse. Sonically that will slow and disoriented people as they approach it and from what I can read here you actually have to disable it by hitting it or by hitting it with something very very close range so it seems pretty decent on slowing down and that in combination with the new proximity alarm which is a sticky grenade that you could probably put on ceiling. This could be a real problem for for really aggressive attackers. I like that. They're putting in some of these defenses for aggressive attackers. Because I think that it kind of changes up the dynamic even though I think we all agree that being the defending team always feels inherently easier than mainly attacking team. Which is why we got the really aggressive defender in the last round. The guy whose name I can't remember. But he can like jump up level or ix or x Ten. But if you guys aren't playing rainbow six or you've never played Rambo six. Now's a great time to jump in. There's so much happening in the game. The Operation Steel. When does that do have a date? There did I just put the Dayton when it goes live Live delays date. I see all the notes here on the video. They announced this week in the description box. I could also pull up the press release again. Sorry everybody listening hoops. Nope it's not in the description back dealer so little halloween or no. Y'All know say not seen either. Maybe there's no maybe in the future this will be in the game happening soon happening after this show airs. We're not we're not giving area take we're just gonNA keep you guessing. Yes yes we will be no but this really really

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla trailer shows off viking battles
"UBISOFT UNVEILS. Assassin's creed Valhalla. Yesterday ubisoft teased the next assassin's creed with a long stream from digital artist boss logic drawing what will undoubtedly be the games cover art in the stream ended with the reveal of the Games title. Assassin's creed Valhalla. And a promise that a cinematic trailer would premiere the following morning which it did the trailer follows. What appears to be a Viking leader doing various Viking. Things like smearing blood on his face sparing the lives of women children and playing with his kids while a narration. Voiceover says they are heartless godless barbarians. They murder and kill blindly. They scar the land of England lands. They will never defend never love. The time has come to speak to them. In a language they will understand and it is revealed that the narrator is king writing out a declaration of war against the Vikings from there. The trailer shows Vikings storming a beach and accepting a volley of flaming arrows as they enter into a large scale war with England the description for the game reveals that the Viking leader we have been watching his Ivar and we see him fighting and slaying and he throws his acts at some enemies but it does not return to his hand automatically which is disappointing and then a big scary extra tall night enters the fray at this point four sees a hooded man appear briefly next to a leafless tree. I for a moment thought maybe it was an assassin or the ghost of an assassin. But then I've or yells before getting totally walloped by the big night who will definitely have an excessive amount of HP when you actually fight him in the game.

"apex legends" Discussed on Salt City Gamescast: A Video Game Podcast
"Oh Yeah we have money. Who won something more? Yeah we might want this but the player base is probably screaming for lean on the shooting mechanics. Guess Fund skills to use. And that's about it. You're probably right on there. I mean I don't know if there is like a huge outcry by the community to make The skill Meta more rope boss. I think that you know really what boils down to is like the majority of your fights and experiences in this game come down to the gunplay and that's it it's kind of an afterthought but you know. I do think that Going back to what I said about like the the NERF and buffing. I think it's mind blowing to me. That revenue is. I mean some people very few people that I have seen are like this characters fucking strong. Most people are like this character fucking blows and for a new character to come out. That is your character for a season blows. I think that's a huge hit. That character leads to be fucking fuck at first and then it's like okay now. Everyone has had their fill with revenue. And now we're GONNA fix him and make him. I haven't even looked at the battle pause but I'm assuming that new character there are levels of it in which you're unlocking revenue and skills rivne and talk lines revenue emotes like these things that if the characters shit you stop motivating people from playing the game in the battle pause. I haven't noticed I mean I'm only level twelve so I haven't noticed a leading like onto one character at all while and yet the pool of characters also is very large. It's not like they're releasing tons characters. Have they released multiple characters at once? Besides like the first go through with the the three unlikeable characters. It's usually just one at a time right so full seasons in they've added Swedish goal. Done Our Name. I'm for some reason. Donald Name piss jugs mcgillicuddy. Slim's caustic caustic raven. I'm drawing a blank on Psychopath who was named after the speed runner. Arcton octane and Crypto. So they was. The initial release was three lockable character. Yes you had raith. Bangel Gibralthe was Mirage no Mirage was the first release Mirage III Mirage Kostic one other were on lockable at the beginning Mirage Kostic. Who else was the? Who's no I think it was? You Got Raith. Bungalow bloodhound And Gibraltar for the start correct Mirage unlikable caustic caustic and lockable. There is one and then they added was only to the only been to two and then one per season. Maybe I don't know what's that's her name. Not Thinking Watson went on thinking Swedish cool. I don't know the thing is the funny thing is i. Don't really give a fuck about the hit Ridge too much because we've been lightheartedly playing this game. It is a game where you can load it on a Friday night for three of us who haven't played it be competitive enough to have some laughs. Enjoy some good fights and play the game I understand why at a very high level people drop off this game The very high level of this is not as compelling The you know the skill ceiling fucking fun gay men. I enjoyed playing with you guys nick and I logged on. We played last night. Played some all. I felt like we had the winning round. There was around up. We had a team fight and I went down and you killed it was in Duos and you finish off the two people and then there's no team fight. You went down and then I finished the two people and we were geared. We're set and then I fucking yell harm or to just charge up a canyon at us. It was also but we were hooked up. Yeah it was the worst timing because we didn't have we had good long range each and good very close range. They all of a sudden showed up at a medium range and we were plinking him and his yellow shield was just like thirteen twelve and they would just fucking plowing through our white and blue shields and we hit to mid and just they chose the distance and fuck this up and it was just like never felt more evident at that point that like if I won if I wasn't shooting him in seeing yellow numbers knowing that like this is I can't stand out and match with this person yeah It just felt a little bit broken but nonetheless from coming from talk of this is like you don't lose anything like Arcade Fund landed on. This train is very entertaining. It's shit show. Yeah no one like if if your whole three lands on the train. There's for sure at least one of you has a terrible time. Yeah and then the other guy hopefully get something good gets off the fucking train of de. It's just funny. Yeah I saw the text and I was like I need to go to the bowels of my home and fucking good at fucking scheduling. 'cause I JERRY. I did one little talk of a run together and I realized how much of a little Goblin and zipping every combat fucking opening things early shit man. It was fun. I WANNA play more help with some quests actually for that so hope you if anyone's chasing the job but al we have to have a a Camman that allows you dilute or not loot. Hara all fucking we'll work on it Jumanji when you let's go to a break leap back. Andrew you play you play in this puzzle game I You said Hey. This is a two hours or less puzzle game that spending my steam library for a while. I thought you know. Let me get my hands on it. And a was about an hour and a half and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience so go go Gordon Gora go. I believe yeah and I. It's been out for a couple of years. I've had it. You know as you do if you follow steam summer and winter sales you have your wishlist and you slowly kind of acquire these games. But you don't have time to play 'em and then I'm just scrolling through it. Mike I I need to finally if I can play this thing. I thought about buying it for the switch and I'm just like can't buy second platform when I haven't been played on the one platform that there has to be suspicious twitches like full price but first of all is a puzzle game. It's kind of interesting took about seven years to make basically made by one Guy Jason Roberts and he did all the art and it's all hand-drawn and he quit his job saved up to spend two years to make. It was a homeless man for five years heat by the numbers he kept change. Apparently he had a hard time like zero again so he kept changing things and then changes it so then he got more funding gummer funding. And finally. This thing comes out and what this is. It's it's quite gorgeous. It's hand-drawn panels and it's a puzzle game and the way it's set up is you've got four panels. You might start with just one picture and think of it in like frames and overlays and you look at it and it's maybe like a doorway and you can click in the door and go and goes into the door into another area and then you can like pull part of the picture away into another panel and you keep like peeling this orange kind of to reveal the different layers and then rearranging things to our engines. Two layers though. If you watch trick it needs to be an onion. 'cause says a lot of layers like I honestly playing it. I was like I fucking. I'm so glad. Nick is going to take the reins on explaining. This is like you say you might have this image. Let's say you have a doorway. You've pulled your character so you have a character that you have to move through this world You never described as though is yours. But he's the protagonist. You might have a doorway with a like a yod behind it And you peel. You can peel the doorway off of the. Yod like a frame and so now you need to place that doorway on a different frame so that your Derek injured and this happens constantly through you constantly have to light lights with different frames you have to like through both rain things intelligently. It's it was a super interesting game. It's pretty wild at I. It's like everything has a place in the game things that you look at and don't necessarily think like they are important but other things You might have two different Environments in your two pictures and you don't realize it but if you zoom in on one suddenly zooming all the way in on one and moving that picture over lines up aesthetically with another one and suddenly the guy can just walk across now because you just created a new way or you suddenly made him smaller and it's never obvious. I mean it sounds like wild. There's instant is an instance where the sequence is A train and you you basically shown this like colored train track and you have to continually rotate your picture through there's no rotate function. But you can rotate it through different means in these panels. I mean it's the dude. That dude did a ton of fucking acid. Whoever made this that man the reason it took seven years is because he did five is with acid work like very at? It's very spiritual What are they called A lot of people get them in tattoos. They're called men dollars So Amanda is like a spiritual repetition style drawing these these are the. It's a Motif that you see a lot through this so it's like a tool album covers what you're saying wouldn't fish function as wells somewhat like that era. Guess so yeah Yeah it's like. The person did acid. I know that I don't know anything about him. I didn't know one dude but nine now in no he did acid. It makes sense. It's one guy because how everything there's not. There are chapters everything leads into another one so You Story Board this entire thing and from start to finish every piece is used and then used into the next chapter to lead you through so you can imagine. He's he's drawing up these the all of these panels and then he decided this panels. Not Working he has to change. That fucks everything up. Yeah suddenly he's He. I read an interview Crisco thing about him on guitar awhile ago but Basically saying I trust like entire chapters like six months down the drain because it just didn't work or I changed something somewhere else and had to go back to the drawing board and he actually said getting A publisher to come in and kind of just give them direction and be like no. You gotTA focus like stop. Yeah inching everything if you consider the game in front of you This would be a team. Collaboration nightmare to make in terms of him doing the art style. How these puzzles function together the fact that even just within a limit of four frames I mean. Imagine this game with nine frames three by three it. Would I mean hard like there is some of? That's a crazy thing is like in within your full frames. You might have the ability to zoom in on something and then if you click an open space it'll tell you three areas that you.

"Warhead as well as typical typical high powered explosives. They can also be programmed to take out a wide area or a strategically like smaller really precise targets so as to avoid damaging being the wrong areas or the wrong people one thing about the expanse that they had an overabundance of is technology for accuracy of attacks You know now if they want to take someone out someone else out from space. WHO's on the planet three levels underground without hurting anybody else they can do it? So here's here's here's here's obviously the fight going to grow. Groups encounter each other after a feeling out process firefight starts the apex screw uses their attack and surprises the expanse team. The expansion team regroups which I like to do and they counterstrike using Amos as a distraction right as we talked about before the bags. Legends team takes damage but then calls in support and powers backup tomorrow normal. The way you're talking about seeing that they are fighting a very unconventional powerful team holden or especially with the warping air. Sorry the way they can. Rift holograms everything else they can do. That's really cool Holden James. The captain orders the Russian anti to fire both PD season missiles very close to their position. and to keep firing remember. There are thousands and thousands of rounds. Twenty missiles the Rosano fires and a large area but Nabil's a battery James Holden and they only got survive whereas Amos's taken out by the team. The Apex Legends Team is now blown to smithereens or at least remove themselves from feel the battle by going to a rift and saving themselves so with the expanse future battle Tek their wins and accomplishes over much greater frozen odds and those present by the legends teams and the fact that they have the roads and onto recall his backup. It's pretty clear that the expanse team of James Holden the God and Amos burden win this fight. That's my point number three. I mean that is very very impressive. Is that really in the spirit of the battle that we heard trying literally. Your argument is yeah. These two will fight like we've posited and then we're going to disappear into a spaceship and bombard from space space. They wouldn't disappear. They'd stay there though they'd say on the battlefield till is that not the very definition of outside interference limited other other people on the spaceship. You're saying aimed at the apex. Legends team has the ability to not only heal prevents death and every other team member can prevent death of every other team member wrecked act. They can also replenish to full strength. Both in weapons tech and health and vitality that is correct. But if you look at the rules of who would win battle outside. Interference is not allowed allowed. I have to believe that as far as as far as the idea of who would win battle and what we're trying to posit today. I think you're being ridiculously disingenuous. Tenuous and the judge should strike down the point of using a spaceship that has other people on. It is outside interference in this battle. The argument is will these three three characters. Beat these other three characters on the field of battle. I think that you are definitely and James. You do this quite a bit do are you. Who are being a little outside the box on on this one seems scared now the rate is using? She's using outside interference in the form of other forms of herself. She's using herself but other forms of herself from different dimensions. That's kind of outside. She can control she. She herself is warning herself from the future. I believe that if you were making the point for raith you would completely put that on the table because because that is a reasonable pat right now. Here's the thing the ability to shoot from space but missiles and this crazy self-propelled smart weapon are smart. Bullets were have view. That's something they always have in their back pocket. It's always a communication away. Hey shoot on my position. A communication to an outside force which then day you sex mocking doc. In his for them again outside the rules of WHO would win battle. But let's we'll put it to the judge. Get our final horizon. You've heard arguments from both sides by the way. This is a really good battle. This isn't good. Find Very very impressed by Ray's arguments fantastic as a both. I'll be again. I knew very little about the expanse I did some research for this. I mean I kinda got a basic idea of what was going on in the ways I would try to combat it but I don't have I didn't have four or five seasons of knowledge and I would say right now I will be watching this show. It sounds it's fantastic. I'll be playing apex. Legends is Great. All right so give us your your wisdom give us your process. Tell us who wins his fight and white okay so all things considered I just have two quick questions before I get to my deliberation one for the road for each of you. GUYS TRUMP CARDS I. I'll go with you. I Rosen on Taylor. Let's say. Hypothetically grant the Rosen Dante everything off fairness everything you all presented. How quickly activated is the Rose and not not to how quickly can the Rosen Onta- respond on call if needed I for example if a heated firefight and it's called in by one of the team expanse members? How quickly can the Rosen Auntie? RESPOND GETS A location and fire very quickly because their positions always being monitored by the ship I see so. It's like a star our track type of functionality. Hey I need the phasers to done. It happens okay and does almost assault. You argue almost immediately correct now. Is this a ship that goes from outer space to the planet side or does it have like a wave ships like the enterprise. No it can. It's meant to actually come down as well but can I just wanted to clarify so. It's meant to fire from space. Even it's it's bullets. It's trajectory interesting. So for Raith. Schnell she can create. RIFF is is there a time limit to how often she can phase in and out of rip walk. It's very similar to what we were talking about before. With with. Mirage and lifeline. There are cool downs involved now. She can personally rift walk herself. You kind of go virtually invisible and go where she needs to go through the rift and she can do that relatively quickly. There's a relatively short cool down there. I don't have it in front of me honestly but I would say twenty seconds seems pretty fair okay. Thirty seconds in that zone and the actual creating the portal which you can hold open for sixty seconds and then it stays for an additional actually. It's a whole thing but basically it stays open for sixty seconds and it can be used by anybody and she used that to effect and she can do that. I believe much like with some of these other powers like every couple of minutes and due to her power said it might be a little difficult she. She plays in an Apex Games where it's possible for her to lose. How is that possible with her power set eventually? It can go on cool down. She can be taken by surprise. I mean You can play badly right right but to be fair. If you're just in a one on one encounter she is one of the most powerful characters the entire apex games and everybody knows it. She's actually I goes if I may even go deep Meta G.. is almost every single team because her abilities work really. Well walk both with a team and individually. How does does she lose? You make mistakes you play bad right it can happen but I mean also you know situations can happen if you plan badly which the character is is kind of playing themselves in this roundabout who's playing them rail all of that being said for me personally as the judge I am going to first of all you both made great great points the expanse honestly surprise me. I'm a little more familiar. With the APEX. Legends crew than the expanse crew. They surprise me in in and they have great chemistry with each other great survivability they have great technology excellent training and that that trump card that they have mix makes them near unstoppable where it makes up for a lot of their weaknesses. Of course team apex. You made a great argument. They also have great technology. The abilities is what really makes them stand out from your typical Italian of armed competitors now in terms of a WHO would win. I think I'm going to give this particular battle to the apex. Legends offense. The reason being that while the the ship the Rosinante while it's an excellent ship raith has a pre cognitive power that allows her to see into other timelines lines when things have gone bad. And I think that makes up for a lot of what the Rosinante can do. She seen herself die before in a terrible noble way so I guess in a way the expanse team would win but due to rates power said she could predict that outcome and and then find a way around it. It's a midnight or situation is so I think that particular even that particular superpower superpower set that particular ability. I think gives apex the one percent. leg-up that they would need if they didn't have that if it was just ripped walking dimensioned mentioned peering I would give it to expand but because it's pre cognitive and because she seen all dimensions of herself in with warnings and things like that I think that preparedness gives her the leg up. Can I say right now. You are easily the greatest judge we've ever ever had come back and be right L. U. B. R.. FULLTIME judge was signed up for this James or given me a thumbs down on this right. Here's the thing. I agree that he was amazing. You're absolutely fantastic. We'd love to have you back on. The show is just that ray asked the same question of every judge Moore gives them the decision that my latest victory is always the greatest and therefore that judge is the best you can actually rank them from now till the beginning of the show in that order order all right. So here's where I'm at. Yeah I actually agree with your decision. Okay this is weird because the expanse had one big the thing going against it and even though the twenty four th century technology that Greek chemistry great experience. And it's based in reality. Yeah and the problem with your base in reality you've gotta go by the rules of reality. which by the way is why the show is so great and why people love it so much I actually? I think your vision was great. I actually agree with if it if you have the ability to understand. What's about to happen so you can just get out of the way right whenever I teach someone big into MMA teacher Jitsu? It's you box. Oh not everyone says the same thing. Well how do I defend against this. Defend against that. I said Great. Here's what you do get out of the way. The exact same thing into what helps me is that that's wraiths passive ability which it's always on and always always active all right. I gotTa Tell You I love this episode. Rafe fantastic fantastic debating really really was great guys. Were amazed I gotTa tell you. A lot of people will probably say there was no chance to expand to win. I made a competitive thank you had had had. I realized you were going to come. I was not expecting you to bring a spaceship to the apple. Had I realized that I might have tried to cheat. Bring Titans to the pack Vol University and and the titans might have a chance against an airship because they blow up dropped ships at the end of titanfall Magin thankfully..

"Okay and then I have some questions about Mirage. Yes so so he can cloak apparently yes he can go invisible Zabol brief period of time. But he can't do it will it will be okay because it's an ability right. There is a certain cool down on it. His create the Meraj create the clone loan. Ability is like ten seconds so he can do it a lot and he does it in battle all the time. In fact in the most recent season there was a holiday themed event where they they actually revealed his luxury yacht mirage voyage because he's cheesy as all get out and if you go onto the ship inside the game there's actually I believe like like eight different eight to ten different mirages clones of himself just partying on the ship while you're on it including the titanic pose at the very very hard together. It's wonderful that that was going to bring me to my next question. which was his? Is there a limit to how many holograms he'll recharging ability ability So it's a thing and honestly if you watch some of the Lore of the game he seems to just kind of do it will. There's a great picture from the game of him trying to hit on a young lady. You had a bar a very very cheaply and it's very clear. It's not going to work. But he is a holographic projection of himself as also the bartender pouring drink as well as another one behind and working. I believe it was like a bar back so I mean like He. He uses this stuff all the time. Okay excellent because it's the one thing he does really really well whereas socially he's he's maybe not as good okay ray stickiness socially and then for team expanse. You guys have a lot of feats here so I just WanNa get into a little bit of the specifics of each feet. For example I wrote a couple of questions on you. They saved the Earth from infected asteroid which is an incredible credible feet. How exactly did they do that? They had to fight through better. Make Up Your Game Day. I'm trying to recall it properly. They had to fight through. They were vessel. Serb wrongfully blamed home remedies. Private wrongfully blamed for an attack on a ship. So now the Martian forces earth forces. And even we're both coming after them they had an ally with the beltre's that help them kinda take ship disguise. It get past everything but it was a constant fight after fight after fight both in space on different planets. They finally made their way there and then they had to go through the zombies by the way during all of that James Holden got hit with a ton of radiation. And this thing. Did you become the hulk. No good for me. He actually got is kind of a weird thing. He got cancer. And yeah thanks ray up but luckily the expanse ship had like a healing patch that they actually had to put into them that now controls it and keeps them at bay so yeah they had to go through a lot and while he contracted this horrible Z's fight on writing so if I may progressives forward a little bit right here let's go to the turning point. Let's hear what you have to say. WHO's ahead in what's going on so for for right now? I'm going to put team apex in the lead. Thank God what gives Apex Lead Right now is that of course. WH- wh- basically from round one. You guys are pretty neck and neck as far as equipment and technology pretty similar It's very very similar. One of the leg ups that the apex legends had against the epoch. The expanse was their shields and their lasers so the shields them being energy shields they can take an sustain more impacts than the expanse team and also the expansion team since it exists in a universe without any lasers. I don't see them being able to immediately handle being being attacked by lasers. I would agree with that. I was pretty. I don't even think about that So those were what gave the leg up around one for apex and then round two is very expanse. Had A lot of good feats but I think this healing and even even if I directed directed healing solely to the character of lifeline. That is a huge leg up in survivability as far as combating against the expanse teams so I think for the for the expanse team to give yourself a leg up. I'd like to know how exactly they could combat the healing healing capabilities that the seemingly limitless healing capabilities at the apex. Legends team can put out because as you said Mirage would a good for maybe a couple of decoys but in the larger scheme of things. They're a our headsets. Can protect them from those. I've got a I got to tell you. I knew it was going to be a tough battle. I may have a Hail Mary but let's you will always seem to I try. Let me hear your point number three ray. My point number three as the character. I have been sandbagging because she is probably the most powerful of the three characters because the cool thing. The APEX team has that the experience is not as you are people. You are human beings and we we are a little above that so wraith raith is a very open character. As far as some of the storylines shakes is one of the coolest storylines of any any character like from video games in that. She was an experiment of her own design. She was tutelage under a scientist. who was maybe didn't have everyone's best intentions in mind and and they couldn't find any willing participants for the study so she said Heck I'll do it? She ends up getting put into this machine and she ends up going across dimensions and she actually the character Raith Rene Blasio. She's known is he actually goes into an alternate universe because everybody is killed as part of this experiment she. He wants revenge against the doctor but can't get it because he's already dead. She actually rift walks to another dimension to a universe where he's still alive and is about to who experiment and the wraith experiment had just happened. She kills the doctor to get her. Revenge knocks the eighth from dimension back into her original dimension with this race breath not knowing it all. What's going on with very little memories and this will help us to take place on the planet of Kings Canyon or the Kings Canyon from the first Apex Games? So is A. She's literally thrown into the battle. Not knowing what's going on so I'll just do this battle. I guess so. Wraith can actually like whoa rift walk through dimension so the first ability that she has she hears voices from the void. Those voices are literally her from other realities and other dimensions. That things didn't go so well warning. Her of impending disaster are to herself that she can. He'd and then shout out to her teammates as well so she's about to get sniped. A voice in her head will say they can see you get down. And that's the thing that could she can do. It happens in game and you can actually use that to your advantage. Additionally she again rift walk which means that she can disappear from this plane of reality for a very short period of time. I'm and go wherever she needs to go to escape again. If team expanse gets the jump honor she can absolutely kind of phase out and then phase back in again both as an offense and defensive ends of weapon but the most important thing here is the fact that she can create rifts and she created void drifts what that means is that she can create a portal in front of her and then for sixty seconds. Yes you can go anywhere. That she needs to go where she is completely invulnerable while she's again tripping the rift if you will and then she can create a second portal and then you can kind of automatically go between those is to portal's it will one thing that she often does in combat especially in the cinematics is create a portal in a very bad place someone would not want to be and then create a portal right behind behind. Somebody grabbed them and throw them into the portal and she has done this to more than once. She has done this to different champions in the Apex Games and she can also also use it to escape a bad situation. You could use it to get herself right behind somebody. And there's no way that they would be able to know it so the way I see this battle going is through. Mirage and lifeline. Nine holding down the three members of the expanse and just basically taking all of the fire from them taking the decoys and giving their positions allows raith to get in behind with very powerful weapons. Was it close. Range knock them and then rift to get away. Rift walked to come back knock the next one thrown portal battlefield removals definitely on the table with disability. And this is just not. What's something that this reality based team the expanse can deal with? That is my point number three as a point. I'd at that point. That's a tough point. This may be the greatest set up for you instead of points you ever brought against a team or per person I've ever had to encounter strengths match very well against your weaknesses China. That's true okay again. I'm not going to really argue any of that. That's what all of these things is. What makes apex legend so amazing? Anyway Big Fan of this game I could tell me tell. I'm just going to have to do something they want to do. You've been sandbagging Soelvi. So here we go. Let's bring in a row synon-. Yeah so the Rosen. entrees spaceship our heroes. The expanse is known as I love. The names of these fans a corvette class light for with multiple roles such as torpedo bomber and Boarding Party insertion. Just keep this in mind on the Rosinante. He has two types of weapons. That will come in very handy for this battle. The first known as point defense cannons. which are I guess they're turning rotary auto cannons? They use like a set of six spinning barrels and when they shoot shoot out thousands and thousands of rounds per minute it the intercept anything's coming their way the also use the same type of self launching ammo to counteract any recoil so they're insanely accurate their computer controlled and can be used for direct space to surface strikes on personnel the round are forty millimeter calibre and have a range of anywhere from one to four kilometers. Okay so the Russell also not just for space it can land hover mid air. Whatever needs to do it can do it? Additionally the Rozonda has up to twenty high-powered missiles which can be used easily again for space service attacks the missiles armed with a nuclear.

"In addition Mirages ultimate ability is the ability to create six of himself at once that all of a sudden they don't go in different directions. Or what have you create a whole. Lot of chaos as he himself shrouds. How's invisible for five seconds so again if you get the drop on him or he wants to sneak up on you he can make himself go invisible using technology for five seconds? Let's get in position and then poppy from behind with the peacekeeper which is very very very good at. So that's lifeline that's Mirage. They're bringing some extra extra to the table. That's my point number two interesting. We've talked about this before like if we use cartoon characters like silly cartoon characters is something called tuned for. I know about to enforce right okay if we need to implement a new thing called like Gamer force or or something where there's an object where you can by the way I love that and the where you can have an artist that replenishes you do one hundred percent but for future episodes established okay. There's that thing that exists for them and for the record. I mean the the apex team if you if you shoot them down and they go down barrage actually goes invisible if he ever gets down for like five seconds perfect chance to get away the other two characters do not so if you can get them down and then you can just shoot them again then immediately you can take them out of the battle. I mean. There is a respond mechanic in the game. I'M NOT GONNA get into that here because that didn't feel fair. That felt to gamy. If that makes any sense I. I don't think that would work in this confines of this particular. Exactly there's no respond beacons variety. I felt like too much and I didn't WanNa take it like I'll take advantage all data Sunday but I I felt like that was maybe a step too far so I'm pulling it back before going to that length all right. So here's the only thing I will say that I do think the augmented reality and AI. Capability of their visors of everything built. Into the Light Marsh Marines armor would help them see through the holograms. And whenever you might see through whether it's reading heat signatures or understanding. Hey I'm not really seeing a person or you know kind of market and saying the real target is over here. That's kind of been demonstrated a few times within the expansion. I'm not saying they wouldn't be fooled once. Maybe twice but they'd quickly figure that out the other thing is too. I love how you brought up how they might reveal their position. One thing being the team this particular group of three people does is understand the importance of not doing that. Yes there are a number of episodes where they're saying. Don't do that. You'll be seen. We need the element seven of surprise. We can't make ourselves available as arguments. I'm not saying you know Mirage won't be effective. I don't think he'll be as effective as you as we may. And that's fair and again in the technology and I think we share similar technologies the fact that you get fooled in Apex Universe to me means you should be fooled. Also in the expanding universe one hundred percent understand what you're saying all right. Let me get to my point number two excellent points Ray. Okay Lemme really let me just talk about something. It's a little bit different okay. Let's talk about the major accomplishments. In victories of the expanse team specifically the team made up of these three knows a fourth the pilot of their ship the Rosinante. But we're talking talking about the ground crew which is typically these three people look at James Trying to bring extra people into the battle. That's how desperate he is already in. Point Number Phoenix drive. The you know the med get everything. Okay Okay Gotcha okay. So the goal of Apex Legends is to what is to survive and win gay. Is it to be the last team. Still last team standing Gotcha Asia. So what's the goal of the expanse team. James Holden Naomi Nagata and Amos to defeat my team close in battle is to save and protect protect literally everyone and to maintain peace at all costs and is there teamwork that allows them to overcome all odds and figure out a way to win. Now here's the thing and this is a group of people that literally will live and die for each other is beyond a family bond. They have the apex legends team. You've got I'm sure they can work together really well as a team but I don't know if they have a history of they'd really at that point where they'd say hey will die for each other to accomplish this it sounds like they all wanna live through this whereas expanse team saying we. We want to accomplish the goal and if one of us are all three of us have to die because of it well so be it. We gotta make happen so in fact. That's typically what the expansion comes up against. Some mysterious force will a lot of firepower are shooting at them and they have to figure out how to overcome which they always do and because their team working absolute devotion to each other they have literally literally been able to save all of humanity as well as who chief some huge feet. So let's see what they've accomplished so far. This survived but was called the alien pro molecule. All this is a substance that came from an alien race that was found and the earth force or some people from Earth Contaminated this asteroid of the belter alter system and the personal molecule trevor. They're into zombies aboard that asteroid who would then like throw up or vomit. Their molecule other people causing the other people tend to turn into per molecule zombies. They stole a ship from the Martians. The military severe military power stolen and then renamed. It made it their own which is really cool. And that's how they got the road. Sante they save the planet Earth from that same infected asteroid that I mentioned previously it was is coming for earth. They had to go there and figure out a way to stop it. They did it against the entire planet. Earth they help to stop a war between Mars and the Earth are actually as it was going on lots. Lots of intrigue conspiracies. They had to get into it. Get in between both sides. The military's taken heavy damage. Fight their way through it. They can miss all both sides to stop fighting unveiled the conspiracy they brokered peace between the three main civil civilizations in the solar system in short they have been directly involved with saving well over thirty the billion people. But they've done a lot of things are also pretty good. They took out and beat what was called the hybrid human alien Porter Molecule Hybrid. Who has super strength was resistible? It's could easily rip anyone apart. And they were like we have no idea how to beat this thing the ultimate boss and they had to figure out a way to do it before being destroyed never been done before they figured Out Within one episode by the way pretty cool they finally has numerous large armed groups taking over bases and even helped overtaken alien world possessed by that molecule tech. The bottom line is is that this particular battle maybe the biggest fight yet for the apex legends crew however for the expanse characters this fight ranks is maybe the third most significant battle of season one point number two. There's a lot to go through right there now. First off you know. You mentioned a lot of their accomplishments like they've brokered peace through the galaxy and they've uncovered mysteries mysteries and they've and they've really gotten to. The bottom of some deep conspiracies. None of that involves fighting in combat. It's a lot more about investigative work being in the right place at the right time talking with the right people. I love how you described them as the Scooby Doo of space. Because you're right. They did all of that. They did all that through a lot of fighting killing shooting maiming. And very bad things. All I'm trying to say is I would rather hear about that than some of the grander accomplishments. Because we're talking about the fighting and not the overall story walks now. The other thing you're talking about is the history. Do these characters of history. It's funny you would mention that because there is a cinematic that came out for the game. That's like one of the handful. That's out there in the youtube of the world of raith and Mirage. Oh two characters. I'm going with right now. And about how they have a very strong bond on the battlefield because it cuts to an instance since where Mirage was about to get taken out by a character named caustic. The one I mentioned earlier with gas traps and raith popped up from behind caustic and took him out preventing counting Mirage from getting down and then she's kind of Lording it over him and then through the cinematic. It's like. Hey don't you remember this moment. Where a character named Bangalore? WHO's a fighting soldier? And she's fantastic. And she's about to take down raith with a final execution when Mirage sent a holographic projection of himself running head on into her. She looks up. Sees it takes out. Her weapon shoots it. It was a decoy Mirages. Right there behind her shoots her right in the head and takes out right there so yes to answer your question. There is a history of them. Having each other's backs do fight together well on the highway. That's one cinematic. Piece versus like years of them overcoming everything together. 'cause slightly different Bong have have a little more as far as more wise through your seasons to pull from than I do. But if you're GONNA ask me. Is there an example of this the answer thankfully is yes. All right Do you have any questions on several of okay. So I'll start with the apex the team. So lifeline has a robots correct and generate healing. Is there a scientific limit to how much she can use this robot when she pulls it out in the game. There's a cool down period which I have written down in front of me but I want to say it's like one to two minutes okay. So when she pulls it out it lasts for a while and then everybody who stands around it gets automatically healed by it. So it's really good the sniper fight or a long range fighter she can just pop it up and so if we're both taking damage were healing. They're not right and there is a cool down on it but it's not an extended offended. Long cooldown okay. And then there's a syringe now. What is the potency of this syringe? Does it only work on down team members. Is there a finite amount of pickups. Your teammate is down and you have the ability to save them. You can keep saving them over and over again. Also lifeline in one of her. Finishing maneuvers uses the syringe to put it in the side of someone's head. Sorry kids and take them out of the bath so this syringe can double also as evidence of your accident and that Phoenix Kit restores. Health deals as well as as hell they call it a phoenix because it literally literally restores you back to full grace again..

"Hey we're the world that you know well no one really cares about. We're on her own right. And as a result marsh military income attack against considered amongst the best in the expense. So they'll be using the the following. The first one is called a second-generation Martian pistol or handgun. They'll be using what's called the Martian long gun which is a high powered machine gun. They'll using automatic shotgun which is fantastic typically carried by Amos and. This is gonNA be really important. Sure this all seems like standard fare. But what separates these weapons from others others and this is really cool about the expanse is the fact that the ammunition the bullets themselves are self propelled. They're not fired like today's bullets. You know what that that means like since bullets ammo since they fired themselves without typical a hammer hits the repentance. Hammers the PIN. There's kind of like a mini explosion of the gunpowder powder. Explosion Causes Pressure to shoot the bullet down the chamber. That's not what happens. Begun sends a signal to the bullet. The bullet fires itself as a result. There is is no recoil now. Why is that important? Okay if you don't have recoil especially for something like an automatic shotgun. How much better is your accuracy? Pretty it's considerably better. That's the weird part and when you watch the episode you notice that they don't have to shoot as much as not a lot of as much gun play where where bullets are flying everywhere haphazardly. People get hit very quickly. Gunfights happened with a quick star and even quicker and and that's it and then they start negotiate like doc. Eighty the one who wants to die. Let's figure this out. They'll also be wearing light. Martian marine armor and this armor covers the where from head to toe has a heads up display play and twenty four th century level. Augmented reality is also equipped with thrusters. That can help them. A lesser version of a jet pack back of the Mandal Oriented Boba. Fett they can fly up. They can have a controlled fall but they're not like doing crazy maneuvers. But here's where the weapons have weapons the thrusters this out by the way this is how deep of a deep dive I go into this thrusters use hydrazine as a propellant. Hydrazine is highly toxic and anyone exposed to it will experience severe burn their mouths noses eyes and respiratory tracts and once absorbed by the skin is eighty skin. That's exposed hydrogen acts as has a neuro toxin and shut that person down within minutes but the biggest weapon. They have your laugh at this is one of their crew is Amos Burton now. I don't know how familiar with the expanse not very okay so amos and this is I'm talking now and giving lip service to the fans the maniacal fans of the expanse aimless is. They're living weapon. He is the bad ass of the crew. So Amos has an interesting personality. Some say he's a sociopath some say he's autistic some say he's got some sort of associate that have disorder. Whatever it is he experienced something so harsh as a child that in his own words? He says he hasn't felt fear since he was five as a results. Now beyond fiercely loyal and will gladly put himself in the way of any and all threats if it means his captain James Holden and the executive officer and his best friend Naomi Nagata will have a better chance to survive in encounter or accomplishing a goal. So in fighting against the apex legends crew. It'll be Amos who strategically tactically and without any any fear for himself. Put himself in the line of fire to help his friends. Add up all those weapons. And it's a bad day for the apex legends fighters. Dad's my point number one and you said a lot of really cool things in there now. The experiences show that I have not put a lot of deep dive into to be quite honest. I'm just GONNA put it out there for the battle. It is a show. I would like to watch because is it. Sounds fantastic. A couple of things famous is really willing to put himself out there to save his team. And what have you. That's great because we will shoot him I if he really really wants to rally around around one okay. I'm very happy if he would like to throw himself on. The proverbial sword deemed Peck Says No problem picking off stragglers others or heroes and focus firing one person at a time on a team in order to eliminate the entire team. So that's great. You talked about the neuro toxic gas. I will bring up another character that my champions have fought against named caustic. Caustic is kind of an evil mad scientist who deals in chemical weapons and brings with him to the table giant gas. Ask traps that shoot neuro-toxins which the apex team has been dealing with the Games for quite a while at least three seasons worth up to this point so while that is a devastating attack at least something that my team has seen before you talk about the lack of recoil on on the weapons one cool thing about the apex team is scattered throughout the maps. Y assumed presented here are different hop ups in different augments to the weapons. which do things like a choke extended magazine and so we also can prevents if we have those attachments onto our weapons to have very very minimal kick as well so I can at least partially match you there? Maybe not quite as good but at least I can put it on the table that we're near it now. What are your thoughts on point number one so a couple of questions on point number one specifically in the tech that the expanse character expanse team has as the Martian armor that they wear protective? Would that be in comparison to the energy armor that a team. It would be less less less durable. The I'm sure they could take. Maybe one to two shots on the arm itself. You remember if the armored self is designed for both aw on plant on planet warfare as well as you know fighting in space right so one of the big things that has the reason why self-contained so that people can not have to put on a big soup can instill do some things like it would hurt your maneuverability. Is that no actually. That's not the case superlight. There are different versions and classes of armor. There's The Guardian Armor which looks like almost like an iron man type suit. Or what have you. That's not something I'm bringing into their because typically that wouldn't be on their ship that wouldn't be part of their resources. I see eighty and the they have a heads up display. Can you explain a bit of the specifics in regards to the heads up. Sure so that can read infrared heat signatures Jersey can help them differentiate between say you know if something's like a Hologram or not Nikki Intel where people are hiding behind objects it can see you know miles miles away so we can tell who's coming out like the digital threat that I was referring to earlier but they have the expense team has that built in and they all have it. That's correct okay. And it's in their eyes or something's on the heads up display actually on the visor off the visor bringing some good technology twenty four century stuff which at the very least equivalent to what the apex screw and one more question. There you mentioned the Martians are the the war masters and they have these training that the expanse team team go through this this training as well like this high gravity training etc.. They went through way more severe things. Okay I'll get into that later. So each of these characters rectors that's a great question Each of these characters has their own specialty in their own backstory set of experiences. Naomi got from the belt or poor. Part of the system had had to deal with violence from a young age. Not knowing she was going to eat not to have air to breathe you know she had to have a high level survivability Amos with what happened in Baltimore Baltimore of all cities he keeps referring to it right. I'm not sure what is the sequel to the wire. How why not they could exist the same universe he had to go through hell? He grew up in in like bars. And brothels like he went into a club or bar inside like people kind of doing some bad things drug dealing with avenue. And he's like you know that guys doing this. He's doing that. She's doing that that he understands that. Work and James Holden's kind of like the caps in America grew up with this with eight dad's where eight parents right is one of these weird thing for poppulation control as a societal experiment. So six more than I had growing he was also in the military for quite some time right so they all have a lot more to come than the average Marshon. Trained soldiers is a strong negative. That's a lot more Christmas presents he had to buy. That's definitely a cool. Thank all right. I hit us with point number. Two point number two now. We've already talked about some of the gear. That apex has let's talk a little bit about the characters themselves. And what powers they bring to the table because no doubt the characters from the expanse have very high technology as you no doubt laid out before us and they are good fighters as well. The team May PECs brings a little something extra to the table table in the form of their abilities. So the two. I really want to talk about here. Lifeline first off. Lifeline was my first favorite character of the game when I first started playing it and she she is a combat medic in which it seems weird in a game that revolves around killing everyone around you quote unquote and a family friendly way of course to have somebody who wants to heal people sees exceptional exceptional for every single Meta and every single team that she's going to be brought to and the reason why is she brings with her. An Automated Flying Hover machine called the doc and what the doctor does is when she pulls it out and she always has it with her at all times but when she enables it a little too of sorts comes out which replenishes health health and life energy to somebody who's been injured so one good thing about what my team brings to the table that I think yours does is if they both start taking damage mine has the ability to regenerate that health and yours. I do not think does have that ability what I would add to. That is the fact that in the Apex Universe. If a character is knocked down they do go into sort of down state but they're not out of the battle. Any of the apex characters can come over with the big oil syringe and pop that character up so so if it comes in the case of me downing one of your characters. I don't think that that character is going to be able to get back into the fight but it's been established in the Apex Universe that if one of my characters goes down as long as they don't get like pummeled on harder like that can absolutely knock them out of it if they're able to crawl or behind device or house of some kind they can be revived by a teammate and brought back into the battle and they'll they'll come back very low health and they'll need to hear what up doc is for so that's a wonderful thing that I have going for for me. Another thing I'd like to talk about here is Mirage. No Mirage known as the HOLOGRAPHIC trickster is my current favourite character in the game. He's just an absolute delight in that what he is really really good at the Apex Games. He's really really good at everything involving holographic technology and he's really really bad at every other aspect of his entire your life. His backstory is really tragic and that he comes from like I said before son of a brilliant scientists and I believe he had I wanna say four older brothers. I didn't right down but they all got. They all thought what I believe is the titanfall. Wars is what's eluded because this game is set in the titanfall universe if you're familiar with that at all and they all died in the war. So he's the last one of his family so it's a very tragic story however he brings a bravado and a look at me attitude which I absolutely love coupled with his decoy quite holograms. He wears on both of his arms. All these little shiny can only be described as little like little caps all over him and what he can do is in a moment he can create need a perfect Hologram of himself. That shows up on technology as him so despite the fact you said before that they can notice holograms and not as far as the same kind of technology here. You can't tell the difference between the two because it is a perfect representation until you shoot it now. If you shoot or attack the Hologram in some way what that does is one poofs. The hologram entirely but second off it reveals your position to the team of apex legends. So somebody WHO's sniping. What we do is apex team is send out the Hologram or create a Hologram to stand up and walk forward or create a Hologram to stand behind a rock just slightly poking up your character might shoot at our character and if he gets that hit which they're good marksmen? I assume they're going to boom now. We know immediately where you are so any element of surprise is going to be gone..

"Using today. Lifeline is a combat medic who hails from a family of weapons dealers and has sworn to do good in this life. Life to make up for her families. Misdeeds Mirage is a holographic trickster in my favorite character who lost all of his older brothers in the war so oh he turned to his scientific genius mother to teach him the ways of holographic technology which he excels in finally raith is a scientist scentists who volunteered for her own groups experiments which actually went right but then causes her to be able to shift between dimensions. At will fun fun fact. APEX LEGENDS DESPITE BEING A popular and successful game is also best known for its diversity. Yes the thirty first. Glad Media Awards nominated the game for outstanding game of the year because it's an initial roster of six characters had two of them verified as Lgbtq through through all of the lower that they provided and that is team apex legends at the top team. I think the diversity might make automatically. I don't know you're gonNA have like where you're going. Ah Well actually and not to put that down versity as well again actually works for the same exact thing which is why these one of the many reasons why they expand so awesome. So you're the details for the expanse the expansion American science fiction television series developed by mark. Ferguson Hawk auspey based on the series of novels of the same name in by James as Corey the expanse takes place in the twenty th century where the solar system has been colonized by humanity. The three largest powers are the United Nations of earth the Martian Russian congressional Republicans on Mars and the Outer Planets Alliance donors the OPA A loose configuration of the asteroid belt and moons of Jupiter and Saturn. So the three characters will we're using from the expanse in the battle are James Holden the captain of the spaceship the Russ an anti raised for on earth as raised me moral and responsible. Once you take on on a 'cause he feels honor bound to see it through. There's also Naomi Nagata who grew up on poor shelter mining ships. She aboard violence but his witness enough injustice to understand the necessity V of it. She's also the resident genius and technical wizard of the spans. And finally there's Amos Burton a skilled mechanic and combatant. He's a master of survival in the doggy dog world at the system and it has a tendency towards violence. And here's an interesting facts about the experiences you know. The producers and show runners of the expanse considered one of the biggest characters characters on the show to be space itself is true according executive producer. Narran car space is one of the main and major characters in the span series. She states that spaces as characters hostile as it doesn't want people to live in it so when you watch the expands these humans having life or death situations keep in mind that space itself may be playing a role in eh character and now you have the facts both opponents. Do you have any questions before we get started. I don't think so. I don't think so all right I gotta tell you. This is going to be a tough battle battle. I've excited they can hit us with your point number one number one with team apex. Let's talk about some of the basics of the APEX Games themselves. Because this is where. You'RE GONNA be drawing a lot of this material from first off. My three characters compete in the APEX Games. Which is essentially a battle battle royale or hunger games for the kids at home? Who are too young to remember the famed movie paddle royal a classic very classic? There dropped on an island first off known as Kings Canyon and then later in the games known as world's edge to different maps. And they're dropped in to this island where there are weapons and ammunition and shielding and everything spread right across all of the different areas either in little bins that they can open or just sort of laying around on the ground on blankets or or on the dirt wherever it happens to be and as the combatants try to kill each other eliminate each other from the match ups because nobody actually ever dies in these games but there's a ring that slowly works its way toward the middle which causes damage to the legends themselves. As the event continues which forces the Action Forces people towards specific parts of the map and eventually sleep makes a winner on the map. Now what's cool about. This is all of the champions are expert with every single weapon found apex legends and we have to assume that since we use use the powers and equipment and abilities. The weapons of apex legends are on the table for what I'm doing. Let's talk a little bit about some of these weapons because they're so. Gosh Darn Neat. I'll start with simple shotguns. There's one called the peacekeeper which is a big boom stick. I think asks from army of darkness would be extremely proud to call it that you can essentially one shot if not too shot enemy if you stand right up to them and hit them they're going down regardless of how they're shielding works. There's also a sniper rifle called the charge rifle because it's not just bullet type attacks. We have energy based attacks as well because there are energy weapons in the game so the charge rifle is one that is a sniper rifle and you can look down the sites as you can see people. There's something called the digital threat which actually makes them glow red on your holographic target which is very very important one at night but too far away ranges. It's good to have them outlined on your sniper rifle makes you hit him a heck of a lot easier and the charge rifle will charge up the beam and then shoot a beam of pure energy which which is devastating. If it hits you a couple of the other weapons I have to bring up the arth real won. The are ninety nine are both kind of mid mid range weapons that I believe they fire. Bullets it's my honestly haven't gone in ran in front of them to find out myself but they they're very more traditional weapons so you're being shot at not just with laser blasts of energy. Gee weapons but you're also being shot with actual bullets themselves. I'm imagining for the people of the expanse because as I understand them to be their people they are humans their exceptional humans humans. But a bullet's going to hurt them as what does it would any other human. The last thing I'm GonNa Mention here is the fact that there's a couple of go to mention real quick is one shields available well to us so if your character expanse shoot down by characters from apex legends. I do have natural shielding that I can pick up or just have if we're to make those assumptions so you're going to have to damage the the power shields around me. It's an energy based shield. Not just like a suit of armor. So you're going to have to penetrate that in order to get to me. Also the apex characters all wear little jet jet packs on their backs to allow them to drop from the sky at the beginning of the Games. What that means is they can't do like super jumps or anything without without other abilities and whatnot but it it does mean that they do not take fall damage so if we get into a situation where my characters might have the high ground over your characters because they are good tacticians and they would be able to work themselves? In those positions Sion's having mastered the Apex Games they can shoot down with the sniper rifles to charge rifles. And what have you and then jumped all the way down without having to go around because of those jet packs on their backs not take any damage from the fall and continue on with the shotguns. And what have you. That's where I'm going to leave it right there. I think that's a whole lot of good information to put on the table. That's my point point number one all right so there's a lot there and yeah I kind of figured it was going to be impressive. So how powerful these energy shields. That's why I need some question about those to the energy shields there's various types of energy shields if we're to assume that for the sake of this battle they're going to have the basic versions of the shield. We could say that they would take one solid burst from an assault rifle. They would take a few different shots from pistols like five or six shots from a pistol before they would finally go away so it's not that they're completely invulnerable behind the shields but if the characters from the expansive able to get the drop on the team pecks at the shields would protect them long enough to get to cover got energy based which means that the I'm assuming coming the logic or the science behind that is the bullets hit the I'm assuming some energy it's a force field. Yeah outside the shield before correct trading through okay correct art because one of the things that the expanse known for is trying to keep everything as realistic as possible. Here's what humanity will be at the twenty th century and in in what we were laughing about this. You know the one thing that they don't have lasers they have ever have real guns got really fast. Travel between worlds they've got durable ships metal computing power lasers for some reason scientists and everyone behind her just like no. That's not going to get that. It's okay for this this battle because at our traditional weapons apex as well so it's not like only laser based weapons. So you're giving you any credit for anything ever believe gave me but I will say the whatever weapons are going to bring to the table are legitimate for this battle fair enough all right. There's nothing really there to dispute. On raise point right. He was just a really good listing of of characters and the energy to make sense. You know video game play where someone has weapon a used by character. See that character D could also pick it up and use it right. I'm good with all of that. Plays very well all right. So He's my point number one if I may. Here's the deal. Let's talk with as it backwards right right okay. My I point number two all right so point number one is this. Let's say you know they've got some great tech but we're we've got twenty four th century tech and weapons which has to be a factor so the characters apex legends. You know it's all fantastic. How are when it comes to weapons and weapon related tech high in weapons from the expanse are so good that that even their weapons have weapons weapons have web? Yeah and let me explain that okay. So the weapons of the team from the expanse and today's who would win episode will be using mostly Marshon military tech so Martians are the military specialists who train their military for war especially with Earth constantly. They train in higher gravity they train. You know they over develop a weapons. They created the first stealth ships. They really are about fighting because they're like..
"apex legends" Discussed on #WhoWouldWin
"OF. Who would win a show? That completely really ignores anything important happening in the world and instead focuses on a fictional battle between two characters from relative comic Sci Fi and fantasy I'm your host James Galaxy and as always I'm joined by my co post race Aquinas rate. Today's matchup is a first time event for the WHO had wind show. We're we're doing a team versus team battle. We've been debating against using this format mafraq some time. So why do you think now the right time to try it would say that we have done like similar groups again similar groups lest we forget the Cobra versus shield the episode that we put together and we have other instances as well. I can't come up with one off the top of my head but I know we've done it. I've been wanting to use the characters from apex legends on the show for for a while. Now I have been constantly blasting you with it and with the new season of the game approaching. What better time especially sort of baron video game season that? We're in the the spring as everything is getting pushed to the fall. What better time to finally let you break down and let me use these characters on the show then right now? I've got to admit I've heard of obviously apex the game plays fantastic etcetera but when it comes to being familiar with those characters. I'm nowhere near as earlier with them. Zam with the characters of the expanse this works out well because I am very familiar with the apex characters and hardly at all with the expanse alright. So you've got amazing legendary iconic connick video game characters against this fee. Nom of a show that went from Scifi to Amazon. And there's only picked up more. I think it's like top ten most popular show in the world at this point. It's huge. It is huge. I think now's the right time to have this. We've got the right characters and teams in play. You couldn't have done this battle a year ago. I one hundred percent say right now. It's perfect for right now with us and with our judge. That's you now. Before we mentioned are judge no mention them. Now go ahead okay. Baranov Ray makes none of the decisions we mentioned. We're out of studio today. Oh we have to do that yes. That's true we have decided to come to one of Los Angeles. Most psychotic eateries were coming to you from the world famous vicious dogs restaurant in North Hollywood California Hollywood California. How could we be so great? We can have great. We've been having so amazing hotdogs here. Typically I try to stop it one but and I had one and willpower is really kicking in trying to keep that diet going. How Jordan Green Lantern Job Right? Now it's not easy. No now what hotdogs you have had the street dog which is if I may read it off the menu of Bacon wrapped beef dog with ketchup mustard and Mayo topped with grilled onions and peppers. That is literally everything I like in one place even male. You're a male person not typically but I am today here you know. It says that vicious dogs are the best hotdogs south of the moon and now I agree three also. They're letting US record here so I'm inclined to agree but I agree anyway. Fantastic even more impressed. Impressive in the hot dog is the fact that you actually able to read off. The menu really impressed by reading skills to edit that really heavily just so you guys know. I had to put that as a coherent sentence. I had the chicken sandwich which was actually a sausage. It's not even a hot dog because I was informed by the owner tons of chicken great cheese. I'm lovin hotdogs all over again and sausage cheese. Yes yes to all of the above absolutely right now we talk about something. Can we mention the I know we're we're we're both excited about this up on. La Street dog as opposed to normally. I'm usually hopped up on other food. Fantastic alright making their first appearance. I can't believe we got this person's a judge on the WHO would win show. Now it's actor and voice actor extraordinaire. It's Cyborg of young justice from the digital sky. podcast it's Zeno Robinson's. Thank you so much for being also. Hello thank you for having me. I really excited so you know what's it feel like to be so amazing. You know being the voice. I'm just going to put it out there. I'm a little. I'm a little fan and boyish right now. Man Yeah Cyborg is one of your favorite characters and all he is not just for me for my entire family. A former armor technology person software. Yeah also used to play football and do the anything. Oh man you know you've got the best of both worlds put into the amazing patch. Your the fact. He's a super genius. which by the way sitting across you now? I'm getting the same vibe. I think I would as if Cyborg was sitting sitting right here this. I'm okay awesome normally. I would say you're sucking up right now but I feel it is. It's a mutual feeling of awesomeness that you're here now. I'll tell you I've had as I mentioned before I've had a little experience in voice acting I fell into and I got. La and I quickly fell out of it. Because when I saw voice actor especially really good ones at work work. I realize it's talent but it's also a lot of skill is a lot of things that I just don't have So what do you have that makes you so vastly superior the other people who are trying to get into this business. What did say superior I? Wouldn't I think what you would need. That would make you superior to other. People is just just the Shinozaki the perseverance to keep doing it. I before Cyborg I had been doing voice over for about seven years with nothing you know before the Big City Greens and then I did Craig Creek and cartoon network and then Cyborg so I think it just takes a lot of studying studying the craft of acting and just keep practicing that instrument and just keep going like. Because you're going to get a lot of rejection. Thank you for saying that. I just wanted to say because the one thing I've learned I I'm I'm friends with a lot of different voice actors. They're my favorite people in this town of Los Angeles Calgary Great. They're the best because they play these crazy characters and they get to live this dream but still maintain their at an entity to appoint perhaps item specific events. But the one thing that you said right there and I'm so glad you did is for those new voice acting become a great actor. Become a great actor I and that will allow you to use that training to project through your voice. See I am a terrible actor but I'm Lau allow which is why I do hosting instead of acting. I mean house thing in itself is kind of acting because you have to build a kind of a bond or link with if your audience and this in particular is podcasting is a specific type. Because you're doing it with an audience that you can't see so that takes another muscle in itself so I can give you more credit. I feel like in my heart. I see if you see them in your heart. Then you're imagining that that is maybe at a Impressed myself there did not think it was possible. Fossil that's incredible okay. I don't know if I mentioned I'm a big Fan of your work. As CYBORG CYBORG associate if you could pick three superheroes to clay or even super villains for that matter okay I'll probably wouldn't really okay I. It would exclude race to Kanus from that list of Super Villains. Okay if you could play me. An animated version of you. I feel like I would have personally made it at that pretty jazzed. I'd be also really impressive. Myself that I've match your voice. Also the quickest cancellation and cards could go through a lot of training to do so. O'Brien doing so you would blow it out. That's good for your career true so all right so give your top three. Who would you pick? Oh so hard so they actually not very eh miles and Duke Thomas. I thought you were gonNA say Duke Nukem. So I'm glad that for me. Yeah static ecstatic miles and do it. Can we talk about. Are we allowed to cross promote that way. Not Allowed to talk about that you can. I loved it. Yeah I was static. in-depth battles adults static versus miles. So that was that was pretty much essentially kind of like the show where you they take two people and they compare stats and they see who wins and a big a big fan of that show so of course. This show was a no brainer and yes of static mouth or two of my top favorite superheroes ever so it was actually really difficult auditioning for that. Because I was like. Who Do I do? I root for but static is special because that was my first ever favorite superhero. It was the first time. Never saw myself in superhero cartoon in media that that started my love of comic books and pop culture so so it's like a kind of like divinely time that that I happen to play static so I know so. I love that series in reruns runs of static. That's how I had to talk to my first son about bullying. Yeah and they also handled gun violence and gun violence drug abuse racism. Yeah everything I talked to Lamar about that really cool rate great. Great human being and there's just a lot of great. I'm just going to say it. I felt about the Status Shark series. Could've gone on longer zone. pull the plug. They said something about merchandising. Mario Voice toys whatever. I've always been suspicious of But whatever I loved it for what it was and I think you're bringing some great lifezette. Thank you and continuing. Just the greatness cyborgs. We mentioned for the show. Yeah love the cat. One of my favorite character. It was great. That was such a young. Just also one of my favorite series is so I loved it on its punts conception and Greg Weisman anything Gregoire. What's his name is amazing and and Brandon? He Brand Greg. They're both great so it was one of my favorite shows ever and like just being a part of it is just a dream come true we see you next season. Or we're hearing you next these Hashtag no spoilers. That's what.
The Future of Gaming
"For high school athletes. Getting scouted to play on a big league. Sports team is the dream they hope. Someday Day recruiters will be standing on the sidelines watching during practice or come to their games and sign them up for college teams or even sometimes professional ones. That happened a sixteen year old. Kyle gears door. He goes by the nickname Boga but the recruiting process was a bit different gears. Off wasn't out on a field field joe he was in his parents house in Pottstown Pennsylvania sitting in front of his computer playing the video game Gabe fortnight streaming his games almost daily for Amazon's twitch a website for gamers and. That's where a scout for an eastwards team called the sentinel saw in play. He signed a one year contract with the Sentinel's back in March and that paid off for gear store and the sentinels almost immediately. Yup Right here. This was in July at the Arthur. Ashe Stadium in flushing New York. That's the same stadium where tennis is players compete in the. US Open gear stuff. was there on the field for the first fortnight World Cup and it was a spectacle spread of players across the screen. There's your talk ten on the left side. The top players in the world sat on the field behind computer monitors side by side playing against each other in the virtual game which was is then projected onto multiple matrons for thousands of fans and stands bogus parents in the audience of course as well cheering him on and they weren't the only ones fortnight has about two hundred fifty million registered users and more than a million of them or streaming the World Cup Competition Jim Champion and the prize. Money was worth a lot. The three million dollars of that gears dorm took home about two point. Four million the sentinels got to keep the rest according to people familiar with the matter but even so boga and other eastport competitors like him are living. The teenage dream getting paid to play video games epic the company that makes fortnight. Isn't the only game in town. activision blizzard and take two interactive software have launched professional professional leagues around their games. Electronic Arts has a fee e World Cup a video game version of the soccer World Cup with thirty two players competing in multiple apple rounds until one country player comes out on top revenue from EA. Sports is expected to climb around twenty six percent this year to reach about one point. Two billion dollars hours while at the fast growing need it's still just a small part of the global video game. Industry is estimated to be worth one hundred fifty billion from the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Qatari Yokum. This episode is part three of our highlights series where we bring you the best from the Wall Street. Journal's Tech Live Conference in Laguna Beach California for Three Days Wall Street Journal editors gathered alongside leaders in the tech community to discuss everything from the future of artificial intelligence to data privacy today. We're focusing on the future of games. Hi Jason Gay. And I'm a sports columnist for the Wall Wall Street Journal. I'm speaking Andrew Wilson the CEO of electronic arts electronic arts or EA as a global leader in the gaming world world especially in sports games. They're the ones who make madden NFL. Fica need for speed apex and of course the Sims the company has more than three hundred million registered players around the world and last year two thousand eighteen to posted a net revenue of five point. One five billion in dollars Andrew spoke to us about how e sports mobile gaming on social networks and mixed reality Games are changing the way people play and also also starts on the industry overall. I want to ask you right at the top. What you were excited about right now like what is happening in your trade? It might be something you are doing but it might be something somebody else's do what is getting you excited right now in gaming if you think about how cloud is going to change the consume everything right so we watch more TV and more music and we listen to music and AL belief is that we're actually started out a blue the lines between real and virtual with the cloud. So you get to place where you get up in the morning and every activity you perform through the day has has some kind of payoff out of a game. You might run to work. It means you have more energy and fee for. You might have a dozen eggs in the fridge. Which means you're sims a fed? You might drive fast. So you'll need speed game is better. You may interact with a whole Gotcha people so you have more power in. PG So this blurring of the lines between the real and the virtual kind of moving getting from a discrete experienced went industry experience. So are there applications locations for businesses to actually game by the workplace people showing up for the nine thirty meeting on time. I think that's happening already. We see that in schooling to where we use game fixations a lot of schooling education is becoming more compelling for a new generation so inevitably it happens in our workplace. That's for sure. Do you think that people can burn out on it or do you think that that is something that will stay the idea that people want that kind of competitive metabolism where they gamified experience social interaction and competition competition at two of the most powerful motives of human behavior that positive so guilt obligation addiction causes as human beings. Do all kinds of things until such point in time is actually actually. This is just really bad and we kick the habit cold Turkey and then we tell all of our friends not to do it as well but social direction and competition the two things that we don't we don't get tired of it kind of drives us throughout our lives and so really the very core of gaming these to call positive motivators of human behavior and provided you do it right and you build over time and and you get the rewards and benefits of those two things that it's not something you boone out on. It's actually something that enriches and extends it enhances your life. What's an example of something that you've experimented with yourself that that you've been surprised? It's been a very sort of exciting satisfying gaming experience candy crush. Who would've thought like doing this and doing this? I mean here. We are five five you six years later and we're still doing it. Yeah Yeah it's a good segue to the next question. which is that? I think of gaming as a business where every now and again there are true phenomenon that just crossed the culture. And what is it like. And you've had some of them. What's that like to have a game? That isn't just a business success but just sort of vaults into the cultural conversation station I think every day you up to build entertainment. You hope is that you're going to detain you. Know tens or hundreds of millions of people I mean as as the providers and creative at a time and I think that's all of our objective when we get up in the morning every now and then it actually happens and all kinds of good things come from that no kinds of challenges come from that. We had a game earlier this year. Old Apex Legends. We brought fifty million people into that game in a month. And that's that's a wonderful thing. I mean that's mind blowing and we we're running around the office cheering. How compelling this game and then all of a sudden you discover there are all kinds of negative manifestations of of that kind of broad appeal cheetahs in in the spice and you get people trying to counterfeit currency in spice and you get bullies in the spice? And then all of these kind of negative manifestations of human behavior that we see in the real world quite frankly also manifest that skyline a will that has this many eight people interacting with it and so there's a whole nother victor of work that we have to do to keep that that experience fun and safe and enjoyable for the people who play. How do you see around corners to predict predict and anticipate? What kinds of Shenanigans might happen at a game or been doing it alone time here? We spent a lot of time thinking about if we were bad bad people. What would we try? And do we go out and hire some bad people to see an awesome. What would they do that works? And then the other thing is is we've written a whole program. Set that that really looks at by human behavior over. Tom's human compensation over time and we're getting better and better through machine learning at predicting where positive energy cartoons on itunes negative or
EA to make its games available on Steam
"Electronic arts announce it is publishing games on steam again first time since two thousand twelve I guess they had some DLC still kind of trailing along into two thousand thirteen with last time they published an actual game on steam was two thousand twelve and now they're back with a preorder page for star wars Djeddai fallen order EA says other major titles like the Sims four and unraveled to arrive in the next few months and even multi-player titles like apex legends for twenty battlefield five those are going arrive next year and they're going to enable they say cross play with folks who get them from EA origin yeah this is fascinating in so many ways I this is this is a part of the industry that I followed very closely for years and the stuffy would see after origin happened stay on steam like you said is someday I'll see mostly was old games they had publishing agreement that people paid for their and so yeah I can still go get my old copy of kingdoms of amyloid because that came out before this all changed over and got away from steam but really since then if you wanted to be a PC player and enjoying Ed you had to go over to origin and origin has never been great it's always been good games that he aim eggs when they make good games but not a huge selection otherwise some decent stuff they also were the first introduced kind of a subscription model that was super interesting there's a lot of reasons to to actually look at origin and and see some innovation there because now there are people copying it and doing pretty well with it including Microsoft I would point out but this is kind of a big deal first of all nobody expected her saw this coming we all knew this game was coming it's a big highly anticipated game the same makers of Apex Legends Are Making Star Wars jet I fallen order respond entertainment big develop everybody loves those guys and this makes me wonder if we'll see the titanfall series to over because that's also they're games but anyway to make a long story short the fact that they're coming over here at all to me signals it seems to be happening in general Microsoft doing the same thing with the less fanfare but I can now play a bunch of games including their most recent popular releases like gears five for example on steam that's unheard of they've never put Microsoft products Well actually just been kind of bad about making a PC versions of their xbox titles as it is but when they started doing that the idea that we could just go get them on steam is pretty crazy at the same time mm-hmm they've got their xbox Gamer pass for PC at a very low price right now on T. C.'s for their own store which I can go get gears five and only pay four bucks a month right now is what I'm paying to play that in any other new games they put on there so they're not leaving their other plans but I feel like everybody and there are other examples of this are kind of going you know what maybe ub softwares right because we saw never let let or never left steam they just had you play as as another option right it was another way to go by their games but they never totally left well now everybody else's yeah we probably ought to just take it back has the gorilla in the room is the gorilla whether you like it or not and what's the problem if we sell a bunch there and yeah valve gets cut but will also sell a bunch over here because we got some pretty good reasons to use our launchers so a lot of savvy gamers are gonNA come here anyway and we'll make more of that money I feel like there's a move back there was a kind of move away obviously and now there's like weird trickle back into you know steam should be our friend again yeah I think it I think part of the calculation Shen is looking at stadia and Microsoft's upcoming service companies are starting to realize that they won't be if these things take off they won't be able to keep their games to themselves unless they want to run their own streaming service which yeah maybe some of them could get away with that but that's whole other business and a whole other competency and that way for a company like ea I think would lie madness you know the first time the a streaming service went down you know forget it that's non starter for EA so when they look at that and say well we're not going to be able to keep everybody in origin any way unless we spend a lot of money making a streaming service let's just loosen it back up we'll keep origin because we still want to take more of people's money when we can because when they sell it direct get to keep more of it but we shouldn't limit the audience and who knows maybe there's also a part of it where they wanNA keep steam around as a competitor to these other services as well and not just seed the ground yeah it's it's smart I believe this is the smart way to do it because there is a sense in the industry that platform exclusivity and truly the the walled gardens that have always been console gaming are going and PC gaming for that matter and launchers and all of that it's going away or at the very least for when you see the artifice of it fall away and things like cross play which never needs to happen is happening you mentioned a bunch here with these titles but this has been a thing for a while it was most most explosive in the news when epic wanted to you know push it so that four-night was playable everywhere if it was your phone who's your concept is your pc didn't matter they wanted all of that same day to that one account serves the mall and Sony resisted and fought and fought fought against that and then Nintendo and huge breaking down of a barrier especially from the leader in the console wars that also speaks to the power of epic right now but anyway aside from all of that there is a sense at all all of that stuff is lifting and what we're left with his does platform really matter when you WanNa make sure game is kind of everywhere that certainly now Microsoft method without actually putting their games on playstation or Nintendo's about device but they are wanting to say look as far as the PC crossover we should be as crossovers muscle and on those platforms agnostic as possible and this is all good I mean in some ways we're talking about steam getting back some exclusively but really not we're just we're just acknowledging that steam is a monolith it's coke you'd probably should carry coke if you're going to sell coke you know what I mean you'd better have it I love watching this so much fun to watch these guys kind of twist and turn and change and to see that pop up in steam was a bit of a shock so and currently number oh by the way on the on the sales charts on steam it's not out yet so doing well already

There is a lot of negativity out there especially like especially in the gaming community and so like I feel like we need a reminder that like great things like this can happen right and yeah people go out there and support. You know find somebody who wants to support. It looks like Ooh. Berry looks like Ah yeah because there's breaking news. we have to wrap it up.

We're we're watching right now. the heroes just dived out of their planes lanes right and yeah there's water geysers. They're shooting up from yeah. Frozen areas is frozen area. Oh my gosh also they do really great job with their cinematic. Fast like if you're if you're not familiar right overwatch does also some the thing where like for when they they whenever they introduced new heroes that when you see cinematic that they show off right and it's really they do really good job of fleshing out the characters and making those those great apex legends does a similar thing. They do different ourselves exactly a way different style right yeah but this is looking very exciting. Yeah this is looking. I think I think one of the things about Kings Canyon which is the current map is that as far as like bio go with a little one note and this is almost like adopting It's like a philosophy of the fortnight right it. Is You have all sorts of different. BIOS on the map. and it's got every every play through feels. I feel I feel like very interesting.

"apex legends" Discussed on Kinda Funny Games Daily
"About that later for now. Let's begin with what is and forever will be the rope report. Did it's time for some news. We have six stories today speakers. We're starting off with a brand Dan New Star Wars Djeddai fallen order trailer. That just dropped this comes from in gadgets ebor be I abbreviated it because I I would butcher the mess out of their last name so I'm I'm calling you the ego or be for the time being it reads after providing an extended gameplay look at Star Wars di- fall an order order earlier this year and respond have released a new story focused trailer for their upcoming action adventure game. The trailer opens with Cow Festus. The game's protagonist escaping aping from second sister. One of the imperial inquisitors tasked with hunting down. The last of the Jeddah cal is saved by sear Judah Egede tonight in hiding Baird's pulled up the trailer here. If you're watching on video alex menial both seen the trailer yeah. I've watched it several times over. I remember one cow looks exactly like Archie Henderson Riverdale but he does besides that joker in the Gotham right. I think it is I haven't Seen Golf Gotham interesting. what's the name of the This lady right here. Can you pause actually go back to the Seir gender. Is that WHO that is. I believe somebody in one of the Youtube comments said that she looks like March from Simpson's hit and run do am I the only one that's. ICS SEE it. You see it yeah yeah. This looks really good. It does you know. I was telling you in the car on the way over here. That star wars yet I fallen order is one of those games that it was analysis like Oh. Let's go excitement. We haven't had battlefront two and then we had way back we had force unleash single player Star Wars Games we they've been few and far between and so this one is like just like for me. The the hype just keeps growing and it's almost like it's like silence hype. It's like you kind of have forgotten about the game at times but every time I see a trailer as it pulls him back in you know yeah and like I think this is the first trailer for this game that I've watched in. I'm actually very excited for what this game. I saw the footage and I've seen the extended gameplay look like watching both of those had me looking forward to the game but they didn't necessarily have me like Oh. Let's go. I'm ready for this like looking at this section right here right whether it's game player cut. Let's seen that looks fantastic. The boss fights fantastic fantastic. I know the gameplay from back in the made it seem like a more linear ars low plotting almost like dark souls or like a secure shadows that twice because they had like the grappling hook and stuff they made it come off like it was going to be more of that type of experience but like even in the trailer Taylor and from what we've heard right like it seems like it's going to be a bit more open in terms of going back to your ship and yet find different planets. There's this theme in the trailer where it looks like it looks Alexa Payment Plan. That's what planet you WanNa go to in fly there. I think like all of the the environmental puzzles that they're teasing like with how you interact with the environment with your force powers. That's really exciting for me. It's just something to break up not the monotony but like you know you're. You're doing more than just you know. Get in fights yeah. You're doing more than just like like the linear lagging okay. I'M GONNA walk down this corridor. I'm GONNA fight some more SPANDEX Keel. It seems way more involved in. I don't know I'm very much looking forward to this game. EJ writes in and says you know Star Wars. Jedi fallen order looks good but I'm still on the fence about the game. I was thinking why this Ah why this is and then I realized Oh it's a it's a first one for me to be hesitant about a game because of the publisher just because I don't know what shady leash it. They will try to pull post launch. Maybe the game will be four hours long which personally I don't mind. I'm not a person that believes sixty game should be at least fifteen hours anything under that is a ways but I feel like. EA will do something shady post launch. There is a trend to add blue boxes two games two to three months after launch. I can't help shake the feeling will put a lot of cool shit in this game after launch and it will be randomized so EJ here thinks that that this game being in the hands ends of era is probably going to mean that pulse laundry could very well see some micro Trans Michael transactions in new boxes and that stuff not implemented well as we've seen before L. especially in stores Games about affront to was you know was kind of a mess at launch and I believe that they went back and changed a lot of how the those systems work and battlefront affronts to from from recollection the I don't know I think single player Games like we've definitely seen stuff like shadow war. wasn't weren't there some interesting yeah in. I- didn't it really depends on who you ask because some people will be like yeah. The micro transactions stuff in that game didn't hinder the experience much but then other people will tell you that the endgame of that game was like wh- ridiculous yeah. I don't know I'm I definitely I definitely understand the hesitation. I think that's totally in your right to do. I'm not so hesitant I feel like who is. EJ Yeah they reference the APEX APEX Legends During Unaware they something called the Iron Crown Collection Event and essentially there was a very rare item locked behind a series. He's of loop boxes that you had to purchase and I believe that if you added all of it up all the costs plus the purchase of the actual item you're trying to unlock it was over two hundred dollars lers. I I think in that case there was some there was definitely some some some some rightful backlash. I think as far as like hey. This isn't cool but yeah I I don't. I don't know I to me. It wasn't the biggest deal because it was cosmetics and and I think those are those are totally optional way to play a game yeah and maybe maybe that's like. Maybe he does work their way into fallen order. I'm not sure but yeah to finish to finish. EJ question here right he he continues to write. I know it's a respond respond making it. I I mean they said that stuff won't be in the game but hey apex legends one hundred and fifty dollars blue boxes happened and as a call of duty as the duty developers said about their ps four exclusive deal quote. Some things are are paygrade so in the end EA will have final say on what goes into fallen order enter yeah I think I I definitely understand in the fear here and I think like I feel similar ways in terms of the fact that I'm really excited about fall in order especially after watching the trailer right like all these this appeals to me like I really enjoy star wars games or at least some star wars game changer last the last couple of battle but you know you like the franchise yeah like. Oh Gee battlefront offramp to like battlefront online to all time thank you yes sorrows about twos for sure and my top like top thirty for me and I want and I really want this game to be good and I really want to love this game and I expect like this game is being developed by respond and respond put out apex legends wonderful fantastic game right. They also put out titan fall all too wonderful fantastic game right and so like you know I think there's also a difference in a live service game and a single player game as far as you know with the game that is ongoing clean constantly being updated something like apex. There's more opportunity for that sort of stuff to come to head right yeah whereas with something that is you know more single player like yeah sure they could. They could patch it but if there's if they're saying that that stuff isn't in the game I want to believe him. You know what I mean. I want to you but this is one of those cases where like I think for me as a consumer. I'm progress for reviews. I'm probably going to wait for this game to come out and to actually get a clear idea of what this game is going to be because like history has kind of presented like history tells me that yeah there could be some non favorable micro transaction implementation into this. You're yeah I wouldn't put that past this game for for the four who the publisher but at the same time right like knowing that it's respond. I'm I'm on torn. I'm torn right. I'm pulling in between two places yeah but do you think you're probably. GonNa get in order. Yes I'm not sure if at launch just because the onslaught of games like there's a lot of games the wait before that or the two weeks before that we're getting the outer worlds then we're getting oh yeah these mansion three somewhere in there somewhere in this. It's a busy fall. I WANNA get it. I'm just not sure sure what if I have one if I have the time to. I don't know we'll see used to always person yes yes. I'm not I'm not I'm not like level star wars where you know he's watching the Star Wars rebels and and all this stuff and he has the book. That's not me I I'm more so I grew up on star wars the original trilogy so I have like Phantom there but as far as like extracurricular universal stuff in the franchise. It's it's not necessarily my forte but I'm I'm very excited for a New Star Wars game bear seen the trailer you. How do you feel about the story elements from this trailer. Do you like have you been following with following. What's been going on in the story and the narrative of this game. I mean like I the obvious one of them's like a couple of years after episode three so that that's really interesting because there's such a a big gap there and I think the only like to like cannon movies that we've had so far that take place in between episode three and four are solo and rogue one and neither of those really deal with the like the jet eyesight of things it's like Han Solo and then it's about the rebellion too aren't force users and whatnot so this is really interesting to have a story closer to revenge and we're Jedi or being hunted down and whatnot and I didn't realize that it was the second sister who is hunting down the I forget the lead character's cal like I didn't realize thousand awesome inquisitor which are like a big story element in rebels I think in a season or two or maybe the entire series. It's been a minute to to be fair. I'm not I'm not. I'm sorry I'm not like reading the comic books or like what I'm very much. I I love the movies I I like finally caught up on the Cannon TV series like last year and like I like the video games whether there can instill or not like I really liked fortunately eastern like that so I'm I'm really excited to see finally like a story in Canon Kaz four some leases now no longer. I can't believe of like something in between episode three and four because there's so much like interesting story of jet is being on the run like one of my favorite when I did read the.

He's not in the game yet. He's like running from the people that run the game. The apex is like eight in the universe. It's like a game show of like them like fighting to survive And he's he. They did something he's there. He's mad at them so he tried to he sabotage it like. He just didn't season to like when he's running from the authorities. He's thrown off some abilities that he could do. I don't quite remember what they were. But You'll Kinda we kind of have a taste of what he might be doing hacking stuff. Obviously hackers so I be interested to see if like he like he can do a lot of stuff like with items in the map like.

S. households don't use much of their bandwidth while streaming wall street journal studied the internet use of fifty three three of our journalists across the country over a period of months in coordination with researchers at princeton university and the university of chicago the wall street journal's shawnee ramchandran <unk> has more we put a little small computer and of high-powered wifi router and everybody's home and we worked with researchers at the university of chicago and princeton princeton who created the software that would basically study the speeds of big heavy bandwidth streaming applications like netflix that kind of thing and to what we're trying to get at the heart of his do faster speeds give you a better streaming experience because the way that broadband providers sell us us market internet to us a lot of it is around via faster speed so you can have a better better streaming experience at home.

And all all kinds of things and we wanted to see you know how much does this stuff us and at the parts when people were streaming seven things at once they average not more than about out seven megabits per second and here we are being marketed things like one hundred three hundred five hundred a gigabit but we did learn having a faster speed it is technically beneficial. Marginally for important indicators of streaming quality like resolution in startup time having a fast speed only led to marginal benefit for instance for startup delay which is how fast how how long it takes for a video to load after hit play the difference between all the speed. Here's that we had from like fifteen megabits per second to two speeds over two hundred fifty megabits per second we only i saw a difference of less than a second for netflix amazon youtube in terms of startup time so ask yourself.

They're using to sense. Bts remember what that means beach things yeah. I'm serious yeah tedious b._t. Is the main bad guy yeah. I think that this baby i.

They played changes by david bowie and then they laid a bunch of when they actually headed adopt tax yeah. It says i can show you it says together. We achieved greatness. There's there's there's something for years they were. I don't want to always be the weekly. Let's remember the bad times. There were so many tone deaf things like their party. Planning committee was called the fun police. He's yeah they had to stop doing that. Actually did somebody take offence at twenty percent. The fund the fund police for people who stop the fun. They don't understand what that means. It's it's funny. It's ironic is it. I don't think they knew that it's satire. Yes thank you it's fourth level what humor man oh man anyway also joined by adam and lawrence. Oh oh yes to you are yes. I was not but i had a choice do dog tags. Hell now think so. They really got slapped with a lawsuit doc. I got there were some wack ass dog tags industrializing. I dunno if that's where you're going with this but there are no dog tags in apex but if they did exist he might follow. That's the controversy so <hes> yeah well. Apparently one particular acts in apex legends was going to be one hundred fifty dollars with mike returns mess that going from that gets that gets tossed around a lot because because it's it's an awfully powerful hundred seventy dollars for one acts. It was like you had to buy your way through tears of stuff to be able to unlock it wrecked so it wasn't just one x one hundred seventy dollars was the whole dumb meta game which if you didn't grind it all in only paid money yes. It was a hundred seventy dollars to get that skin but that's not the way the system was intended. They also didn't communicate it super well so it's it's crazy. How like free to play games. Micro transaction based games always get this one headline. That's like everything in the.

Bleeding Edge: Hellblade Devs Ninja Theory Reveal New Game
"A new game ninja theory's game which actually had leaked earlier in the week. But got the full bring the developer out to introduce it treatment the industry. Of course a brand new Microsoft game studios. I party and they introduced bleeding edge, which is sort of their overwatch esque. Brawler ninja theory known for third person action beat him up. Slyke double mccrie. And. Bleeding edge is going to try to bring that to a competitive multiplayer space. I have to say. The neon post apocalypse was so novel. When I saw the first two times. Boy, somebody got the same memo like let's put pink in a post Apocalypse Now. It just feels like the flavor of the month to me. I am so over that aesthetic so fast. It went from. Wow. That is so different and interesting to another post-apocalyptic look in neon game. And that's a bummer because I think the concept here is pretty interesting. What do you think? Yeah. I don't think this game is for me when I look at third person action combat. I don't want to be air juggled by some other player on the internet. Who's going to be a million times better than me for four hours. That's what I like about this game, the Trinidian show of for our air juggle. But when I think of that style of combat. That's what I go to for those, those games in this looks like a, an overwatch meets apex legends in terms of kind of character design kind of hybrid. I think it looks polished, you know, the characters are all interesting and, and have a sense of shape, and weight and scale behind them where I think they're readily recognisable across the map and stuff like that. But do I picture myself spending any significant time with the game? No not. Which is fine. It's just not for me. It just does not seem like a game for me in any way, shape or form. Fortunately, I am similarly on excited about it. It does look interesting. I'm curious to see more of a, how that common system works in competitive environment, but for company that has some games I really loved. I mean heavenly sword I think is so underrated a game. And sinuous sacrifice was so interesting in different. This just feels. So metoo in, in, in so many ways, if feels like a game that was green lighted at a time. When overwatch was the biggest thing in the world and than it took so long for them to make that the industries moved on a little bit. I don't know. I want this to be great, but I am certainly it's not the top of my anticipation list at all. But the good news is will get it on game. That's

They also created a couple of really high profile games most recently one called apex legends. Which isn't that the new fortnight? It is basically the big fortnight rival. So and has gotten a lot of buzz. So seeing them attached to this project is very fascinating. It also has believe one of the minds behind God of war, which is another popular adventure series. So there are a lot of high profile names involved. So it looks like it's gonna be really good. The only drawback is EA has not been the best steward of the Star Wars license lately.

"I don't know. We'll we'll have to see those. But the last question I wanna read is from Remmy since we didn't get January direct from Nintendo. And there are rumors of switch remodel. What do you think? The chances are. I switch many a more powerful switch or both. I was going to get a switch for smash. But the rumors made me weights. We're definitely switch many. That is for sure in my mind. I think we'll get it this year. Imagine towards the end of the year a more powerful switch. I think will also get but I don't think that'll be until next year. Maybe the year after that. He's that I was going to wait for a switch for smash. I was gonna switch for smash. But the has made me, wait. If I were you I would get out. Just get the regular. Yeah. Yeah. I I wouldn't wait for a switch, many, me's Nash. I which XL switch mini is like what you've talked about Ovalles, just the joy concert stuck. I'm vida. Yeah. I wouldn't want to do that. But yeah, maybe like a more powerful switch. But I don't know if that comes out this year. I don't think that's this year. I think that will be. The thing. That's interesting to me here is since we didn't get a January Taraf from Nintendo. That's something. I haven't been able to talk about we did not get January direct. We're we're so used to getting those that are kind of like showing like where's intendo out for the year? There's a lot of question marks right now that we have for games like Nintendo acted very bizarrely last month with the the way that they just randomly announced the metro trying delay and giving it to retro them. Just dropping Yoshi crafted world release date in two weeks. You know? Yeah. That's direct news. Right. Like, why would they why would they do that? And there's a couple of things in that vein. But there's still a lot of questions firearm lem three houses still supposed to be spring interesting. We gotta hear about that soon somewhere. Right. If we're going to hear about this retro game, if it's real, and if it's done or close to being done, you imagine we to hear about it before he three I think. Okay. Right. Like, I dunno. I don't pretend to like understand. What Nintendo does what they do because they're just they're crazy. And they're not there. Now in a weird position where they're changing what they do public lacing at least. So yeah, they I forgot who where I saw this. But it was one of the Nintendo like top guys in the last week read. It wasn't Reggio on the Japanese side. They said they I think it was in one of the financial reports than intendo is going like it's going to hit all of its release dates. That everything that I've announced for this year. It's going to happen with the exception of the delays. They've already made. Right. So we'll see we will see some squad up Nathan chocolate rights, and he's on PSN. His name is lightning hat N H because apex legends is awesome. Plus, there's a sweet five percent bonus to XP if you play with friends, and it would be great to have some kind of funny. Best friends to coordinate with for those sweet wins in order to become an apex legend team up with them squad up with him lightning hat and h now it's time for year wrong. What did we get wrong today? Man. I was so happy because I looked at it. And then I scrolled up says there is a lot. Okay. Well, we got today. There's a lot. Let me have to scroll through this to get rid of ETA. Tovia leising. Pregnant pause pregnant. Anything good? No, not yet toy allies. And GT says Tamara says there is no final makes for three plan. But there is potentially DLC. Interesting. We'll see 'cause I've heard the exact opposite.

"It's a little more of like closer to the end of college black ops. Boy, right. Exactly. And although cross plays unavailable at launch respond toll euro gamer it plans to allow players to play with their friends on other platforms cross progress and cross purchases. However will never be possible in apex legends due to the way systems were set up early on which can't be reconciling. After the fact in other words, cross play only recently became a possibility. It'll never be fully integrated into apex legends. Bomber. It is a bummer. It's cool that they're getting ahead of in. I'm explaining their being. Situa- like just because like some early development decisions. Like, we just couldn't do it and sorry about it. Yeah. So hopefully, I think people understand. Yeah. It is unfortunate though, because I feel like when it comes to cross play the thing that would be most valuable to the most gamers is cross progression. Yeah. And cross save cross play is like a cool nifty thing, but I really feel like it's this progression. That that helps progression in saves though are still very rare, and that's still like something that people are still trying to figure out. So the fact that they couldn't do I don't think it's that big of a huge apprise or disappointment. It's still something that I think developers and publishers trying to figure out so. Yeah. And then moving on from there, then this is like a perfectly I just feel like they're handling the reaction to so. Yeah. Well-crafted our desires to be completely open and transparent with our player base. And part of that expands to how we talk about problems. And we understand this game is going to have a special skeptical audience. There's some people who think are to any battle. Games, or it's a fad the world thinks for making time fall three, and we're not this is what we're making to try and convince a sceptical skeptical audience for months with trailers hands on articles. We're just like let the game speak for itself. It's the most powerful antidote to potential problems. We're doing a free to play game with essentially loop boxes after we were bought by. And that's and it's not Titanfall three. It's the perfect recipe for marketing plan to go awry, so I have that. Let's shift the game and let players play when I saw this yesterday when I was reading about it. It made me think of the Eric Andrea me more shoot Hannibal rest. But this time it's EA shooting fall. And then turns around says, why would the gamers do this? It like this whole thing has like a weird taste in my mouth because I was a huge fan of titan fall to and like EA like accidentally published like one of the greatest shooters of our gender of this current console generation, and they per they definitely put it in between call of duty and battlefield that year. Not giving it like any air to breathe and they killed it. And they didn't give it they didn't give that p like really any chance and kind of bums me out. So I I think I understand like why as doing this though, like, hey, like, we want you guys to shift to if this was as this is not response of like, we want you to shift to this and make it free to play and all this stuff, especially because you know, battlefield fives battle royale mode. I think it's delayed is still not out. It's also still behind of you have to actually buy battlefield five. I could be wrong about that. You can you're wrong. So it makes sense that he was like, hey, if this is something that you guys are already looking into. Let's do this. Let's no scrap Titanfall three and make you free to play. So EA has a free ably battle royale, which really interesting and it's hard for me to. Round my head around this. But I've been hearing rumblings, and who knows it's all just. I've been hearing rumblings debt, the EA response lot different than people expect and that respond actually was the one pushing for the titan fall to release date that it got interest EA was suggesting against it. She stuff that I've heard people talking about behind the scenes. Yeah. Definitely with that game..

"Fuzzy and said apex legends. This comes from Aegean respond Enertainment free to play battery. Al game went live yesterday and had over one million unique players with an eight hours of launch the studio Vince appellate tweeted the news early Tuesday morning saying that he was overwhelmed an added in. Thank you so much for showing up and being part of this with respond. You are amazing apex. Legends reached a peak of almost five hundred thousand viewers on twitch and sitting around two hundred thousand at the time of writing that's awesome, graphs respond that team for coming out with something like like almost shadow dropping like it was kind of leaking. Here's my thing. I truly believe that this is the perfect launch. Yeah. For this type of game. It doesn't work for every type of game. But when it comes to these free to play twitch based. Shooters, which based games. Yeah. They know that the majority of their audiences gonna come from people. The majority of their earned organic marketing is gonna come from people watching people playing on twitch reading somewhere. I forget if this was an actual dad or something, but they're talking about how. How they didn't want to go through the whole like let's announce the launch six months later because it would feel like I don't know we need to sell people on this by like having them play by having people. Come and try it out before we actually launched it and all that stuff, and it was like a really smart move on on their to. Absolutely. And they're going back to what you're saying about the shadow job. I feel like this is the closest thing video game could have to shadow Jaap possible. Because you know, when it comes like, just music albums and stuff. Those so many more moving pieces with video games. Right. I think all the leaks were entirely plant. They would've not done that influence or play day last week. They didn't plan for it to to get out there. Like, it wasn't after answered Fran was saying there's NDA's and stuff too. You know, what I mean is a professional? He was with a lot of people that aren't as professional as him, and that's not necessarily against them. That's just that's not the world. They live in. It's not a surprise to me that we saw tweets go up from majority of people that were there on the influencers. Not on the traditional side, again, kind of funny falls in a weird place shroud. And like a couple of oh to play this thing. It's real it's coming tomorrow. And I don't think it was a coincidence. They all tweeted at the same time, very similarly worded things, you know. I think different people at different embargoes for what they were allowed to say that makes sense. And I think that the reason for that would be that going off what you were saying about not wanting to have the traditional kind of press cycle for this game. That's kinda also getting rid of traditional press entirely. They want the influencers out this. They want their headline. They want the headlines they want the the numbers, and they got the numbers. I'm gonna read another story real quick from euro gamers that we can kind of rounds before you get to that. I have impressions on the game. From one nitro rifle home is latch, Andy Cortez. I texted him impressions on apex legends. And he sent me this. It's great. They're doing a lot of really creative things with it. And that's all that's all. He gave me thanks for that quality number one games. So this comes from Emma can't over at euro gamer. On. She did a interview with a bunch of people over at respond and some interesting tidbits of information came out lead producer, drew McCoy told me that while respond would love to bring apex legends to mobile and switch there's nothing the current talk about. So you'll have to dock that handheld for now, which makes sense especially in the visual fidelity of this. Right. It looks very high quality compared to something like fortnight that is obviously a lot more..
