So it's Mike's tires in Bethesda. So there's a bit of controversy. It's a bold strategy there. Yeah, I I I'm not sure. I'm sad to say it's actually kind of sad. I don't know where Bethesda is, and I've never been there clearly if I don't know where it is, but I'm not. I'm guessing it's a little different. There were were in, but then I would have had.

Make sure is that I have a feeling Joe might look right at him and be like, Oh, that's a nice looking gentlemen, Why don't I think I know him? I can't quite place it anyway. Let's get to this debate, honey, how you banged. Good to see you again will be the greatest. He went out there. Like bump del. Those with stood there so I could do it.

Xbox Doesn't Need Bethesda on PlayStation
"One is one that was breaking as we went live from a little boy named Steven Tolo over a cocoon. He has a giant interview with Phil Spencer, covering all manner of xbox series x the future game pass you name it but he also talks to him about Bethesda. I'm calling this one xbox doesn't need Bethesda on playstation. We will start in progress than jump a bit further during our forty eight minute chat. We covered those machines, of course, the next gen ones and a lot more ballooning game file sizes, the Bethesda deal and how Microsoft plans do enable next Gen gaming on current Gen Consul first let's talk about xbox series snl. Going to talk that now, joining them deeper for the things of course, Stephen does great work. This is a fantastic interview Phil. You should go check it out in Kentucky. But jumping into the Bethesda stuff it's ought to talk to a console maker about launching two consuls at once, but it's even stranger to be talking to them about a game company they just bought for seven point, five, billion dollars such are the peculiar times we live in in September Microsoft said it was buying cinemax the parent company of Bethesda in software and other top-flight studios that makes the likes of fall out of that might make the likes of fallout the other schools in doom. The planned purchase Amelie bolstered Microsoft's roster of internal studios. The deal will cap off the company's generation long shopping spree in attempt to counter the reps of rival Sony and unintended Oh which have both been long regarded as having stronger internal game making operations. The expanded roster of games also gives Microsoft a lot more content to bundle into their popular netflix style game pass subscription service in offer the via. The company's game streaming service, which lets players access games remotely in play them on their phones tablets devices. Spencer. That said in previous interviews that existing deals involving xanax Games would still be honored suggesting something like the time traveling game death loop will still come I. Two five is previously announced beyond that though fans have been beyond by have been wondering whether it's a Max Games would go xbox NPC only in other words they've wondered if playstation would stop getting fall-outs in miss out on the sequel. I wondered that to quote, is it possible to recoup? A billion dollar investment. If you don't sell elder scrolls six on playstation I asked says Stephen Yes it's been spencer quickly replied then he paused. I don't WanNa be flip about that. This deal was not done to take away from another player based like that nowhere in the documentation that we put together was, how do we key players other players from playing these games? We want more people to be able to play games, not fewer people to be able to play to go play games but also say in the Model I'm not I'm just answering directly the question that you that you had when I think about where people are going to be playing the number of a and the number of devices that we had and we have cloud and. And Game Pass and our Council base I don't have to go ship those games on any other platform other than the platforms that we support in order to make. An order to kind of make the deal work for. US, whatever that means end quote. We do know that Microsoft has made big studio purchase. has made a big purchase and kept his new franchise multi-platinum formed before that's what they did with Mo Yang and it's game minecraft. So it wouldn't be wild to see at five on playstation five period for now Spencer said the platforms for future is games will be determined on a case-by-case basis, and even if they make the Games multi-platform, Spencer's team can still boast in advantage cinemax games could be sold at full price on playstation, but offered at a large discount on the xbox platform is part of the ten dollars a month game pass subscription, a killer deal that already grants players launched a access to every new Microsoft published game. That was lots of read only. I'm sorry to make you just sit there and listen, but it's context to argument. We've all been having on a variety of podcast what this deal actually means. Elaine, what do you think do we see Bethesda Games the CINEMAX games now xbox games on playstation five in the future I would assume. So just because of the like logistical crap. Back End. Anytime money is involved with anything games. You are guaranteed that there's GonNa be some exclusivity of some kind. So that's what I would assume but as a game developer like. Like how Abbas many platforms as our games can be on the better us because that means we're reaching the most people. I have heard you know people who are so vested in the xbox ecosystem. Danny on earlier I've heard him talk about I've heard Paris talk about it effort all manner of conversation about this, and it's interesting to see the different sides people go to. Of course, it'll be multi platform, and then of course, it won't be you have this investment you seven point five, billion dollars right? Like why would you ever give that up and I? I. Find Myself Torn because I can make a case either way if I was a betting man right now at the, we're not even into the next generation. We don't know how these systems are going to run away. We don't know who's going to be the industry leader in how game pass nuts out. So and so forth. I would say that, yes, you will see the Bethesda Games you think of your big ones you're fall-outs your sky rooms, the ones with giant fan bases on other platforms being in that being playstation of course, because I do think that what Stephen Hits on at the end here is so powerful that if you are a fallout fan, if you are Sky Room Fan in, you are die hard for that franchise. Wouldn't you WANNA play it in the best place in the cheapest place to play it like I. Feel like xbox is making this argument that even if they put it on. And it was coming to playstation five and it is seventy dollars or you can pay fourteen dollars game pass ultimate stream it wherever you want play all these other hundreds of great games do all these different things. Again, this is the C. B. Unabashed in your marketing. This is the council we designed it for. This is where there's bells and whistles and were able to make use of all the teraflops and everything else the xbox series x can do like. Even though your advertising than it is on playstation for me that makes sense to hey, this is why you need to buy an xbox. Am I wrong? I mean, from my developer standpoint I, don't like to be honest I don't. I don't care. Side. Please listen listen like when it comes to studios making games like regardless, we need to buy developer kids for all consoles. And to like look at it from the perspective of studio whether they are owned by a parent company or not. There is financial conversations any to be had what if cool you have seven billion dollars by being an exclusive of Microsoft right because of that whole transaction. But what if you have the door open for another seven billion? branching off from other different console. So why wouldn't you take the fourteen billion and just go with a seven? So like to me like a as a developer that's what I would think of That's all executive decisions by the way US developers have. frigging say in any of this. But I could definitely say from the developer perspective having franchises that have already been established like scarring and having a the ability to understand how they work in different consoles than. Or even importing that stuff to a very specific console that has very specific hardware and perhaps very specific requirements. That's definitely GONNA be a challenge for of studios and that happened with a PS three actually that I recently found out. That the PS three, that architecture was so difficult. Was Terrible. Exactly. It was so difficult that like games like there had really tough time studios making cancer, the PS three, which is now what makes sense that we can have backwards compatibility specifically with three because it was a frigging nightmare to to deal with on the back end so i. Was a great example of that. If you remember. Sky. Room. Right was incredibly broken the longer. You played the way that game watch compiled information eventually made it unplayable and drop the frame rate and it took them forever to fix. That wasn't a quick fix but it wasn't you're talking about of working with different architectures and trying to figure all this out. Yeah. So let's To me in my mind that is number one concern when it comes to all these franchises like is it possible to to do the franchise and Change Architecture of the entire game works so that it works on that council specifically or can we what we call re factoring, which is reusing things that have been done before can reactor so that we can continue to stay on the next generation of the councils that we work with before So it's it's a lot to. Think. About. Nearing, like. Many Kudos in the engineering teams all over the Games industry because they definitely have to deal with a lot of crap that they are not given credit for when it comes to figuring hundred. These Situations Making Games is incredibly difficult and I think all of us is fans. Yeah. You know it as being a developer eighty line meteorite like you see it from side that I only interview people talk over drinks with people about like I hear these horror stories and can't imagine a day to day, and then not even a removed the horror stories from it just in general making magic from nothing like making games is a magical thing and we totally take that for grant. We totally don't give that credit, take it for granted. Yeah, and sit there like, Oh, well, why did they just hit the button in Puerto over and make this work and how hard could it be to go between the PS five in an xbox series x Can Be the difference of the night and day Ryan because I terry. Systems are to hardware. So

"bethesda" Discussed on Waiting In Queue
"They didn't really have a huge community on Playstation. I know that for a fact because a lot of people are switching to Xbox and to PC because of that. I mean all the small little communities that they had Within PlayStation for Sony and all that. They pretty much were it was dying off pretty quickly. I think another reason it didn't have a very big thing in, Georgia. On Playstation is because it started on PC and then they made their Morrowind which I don't think was on Playstation. I think it was only on the original Xbox and then Oblivion came out which I think was on Playstation. I don't remember but that was there. I mean that's still probably their biggest release of all time, but the fact that it like started on p c and then like Morrowind came out on the original Xbox I think that helps the fact that you don't see a community as big on the PlayStation. Did I don't know if I would like them to be like oh, yeah, cuz I'm not a huge fan of counseling exclusives going to get Doom now. They got Doom now they got that one cuz they have they have Cinemax off The Evil Within yeah, zenimax Studios is under Bethesda on cuz Bethesda owns like six or seven minor Studios that are it's like Activision, but this is like Activision in a sense they market and and and and not only do they make yeah. So the Oblivion was on the PlayStation 3 as well, but God dude, I don't I don't want them to be like all this is an exclusive. This is an exclusive not only can this be a good thing. It can be a bad thing too. Cuz when a big company like this own something it can really ruin development. Yeah, but I think it's getting the cross play that they've been allowing for like all these other games is like really good cuz and that was something she has been so against for so long because mostly because of the PlayStation 4 how I was saying like, you know, there's more PlayStation players out there than there are Xbox players probably off. So when our longer yeah, well one of Sony's biggest like way of like getting new PS4 is out there has been because when will exclaim that but then when you know, like our friend Tanner when he was getting his new when he was getting a console to play video games with us for finally he knew we all we all used to play on Xbox. He wanted an Xbox. Well, if there's more PlayStation players, there's more of that people that have like, oh what, sir I get and then all of their friends most of their friends are like PlayStation players that are going I'll do get a PlayStation so you can play with us. So that's why they've been so against it but because they got such backlash from fortnite because everyone was crossed playing on fortnite besides application they had to do it and then after that it's always been like there's no there's no excuse. Now you have to do this for all the games that want to do cross place. So that's why like Call of Duty's lunch break probably and Apex Legends. They're in their beta for it right now. Yes, finally, they finally have it up..

Alike, it doesn't matter if we can score because you guys can't guard anything and we give up seven goals game. You know what I mean like that nats one way for it to go and the other way for it to go and my experience when I played. you know and served as sort of a captain or a leader on a lot of teams is to grab people by the callers and the grand by the shirt and go hey, knock it off. We're GONNA do this I I didn't come out here and bust my ass that we can get our asses handed to us and be embarrassed I got some pride and I think you some pride to and we're better than this and we're going to figure out how to do it and I think that's says a company kind of what our philosophy is spend.

"That sort of estimates what the lifetime value of an Xbox game pass subscribers right and based on that number? How many? How many game pass subscribers would Microsoft need to add to essentially justify a Bethesda was And you realize the number is is not that large. It's literally just a few million subscribers that you need to add. that. Over their lifetime you know come to that seven and a half billion dollar of value. How important was sort of the game pass? Element, which William, and I have been huge fans of in terms of product from Microsoft and it was recently announced that I think most of your properties will be part of the game pass offering. And that star field was going to be on on game pass at at Lunch Day one, which is pretty incredible. Incredible. I'm I'm not aware of another. I've never really time a major Ip like that has launched on game pass right? This is I think this is a first moment was there. Well, I mean Microsoft has done it pretty consistently halo will be day one that Aladdin the last years of more words. Pretty long standing But yeah, it certainly a big deal and you know the interesting thing about it Paul is that you know something like that even changes I would assume cause. I. Don't know because it's not my job to figure out what the lifetime value who is the Person behalf people, for that. But I would imagine we probably change that formula in some way right up when you start adding in things like star field or whatever other future titles that we have while we're probably making a pretty good argument to stick around longer not you know not churn out of your subscription and if we're helping your retention and so forth like war were probably having some. Impact either on how many people are signing up or how long are sticking around. If well, I just got star field and I guess I should stick around because this next Bethesda thing is coming x period creative time down the road and I wanNA play that too. So certainly for Microsoft I don't teach his ain't question like you don't need me to tell you. Passes a big deal for them and they are absolutely crushing it. And this is only going to help them do even better I would assume when the deal closes and we can really start moving forward working together. So, so I have to ask as you're touching on all of our kind of hot button topics. So we've you games past huge fans of one thing I think on may be less bullish on today is the street of State of game streaming services and Part of that is maybe some of these have come to market before they were fully ready or they've come to market with promises that the technology didn't necessarily deliver on. You know I think stadium negative latency is a good example of that. But. My my question for you is it seems like you're really big on game which I'm I'm almost surprised by. What what's driving the passion for game streaming as game streaming services and more importantly do you think that enables a different class of game than Bethesda has been able to build in the past good question. I'll try and take it in two parts. The. First part is I think the importance of streaming is twofold part of it is your existing players right and by existing players I mean somebody who's gaming on a PC somebody who has a console one or more? I. Have a switch I have an Xbox I got up playstation and their ability to use streaming to further be able to play the kinds of things they love in a different way, right?.
Pete Hines (SVP Global Marketing & Communications, Bethesda Softworks) Discusses Bethesda's Purchase by Microsoft
"To say we have. Worked closely. With Microsoft, for pretty much my entire time at them, the FESDAY, it's a company we know well They were the ones who really gave us the incentive to change from just being a PC only developer which we were when I started back in ninety nine we we developed and made games only on the PC and decided to make the leap for a game called the eldest group elder scrolls, three more wind for the original xbox and honestly in in part because at their urging, hey, this this console could could handle could do the kind of games that you all make an RPG like yours. Could do pretty well on our system and that was sort of the early days of what has become no a two decade relationship between ourselves and a lot of folks over there who we very much like and respect to chief amongst them obviously being Phil, Spencer and. In terms of his vision how how he sees the the future of Microsoft how we fit in that future? and how this this acquisition can lead to. A future for for both of us, that is sort of win win win. In that we get support and resources that allow us to make even bigger and better games with their help. You know if I've I've worked with I've worked as a publisher who is a third party publisher and developers who have all had to be third party developers for very long time. The opportunity of join somebody and essentially be treated as a first party. Developer publisher is pretty darn appealing in terms of. Access to resources or the conversations you get to have not just in like what are you need to make the? Game better but like from console support standpoint from a systems level standpoint are there things you need us to do, and again we've been in this industry a long time, and so we hear the stories behind the scene about first party games. They get a certain features or special support from Sony or Microsoft Nintendo to lower a first party game to do something particular and you know you talked our developers that's pretty appealing I. Think it's Great for Microsoft as well because I think we bring a lot of additional pedigree to an already very strong lineup and stable of developers look I believe in walking softly and carrying a big stick but. I've been doing this for a long time like we're pretty good catch like we make a lot of really good games. We've made a lot of game of the year stuff and bestseller stuff and in a variety of different. Genres and if I step it, take my Bethesda hat off for a minute. were pretty good get and I, think we ultimately make them better as a company to be a part of what they're doing. And the other one is I think this will ultimately be a win for fans and for gamers because at the end of the day, the thing that we have always believed first and foremost is look making games as a pain in the ass it's hard. It's a lot of work over a lot of years on a lot of people. Spent big chunks of their lives working on these games, and we spent a lot of money making them, and at the end of the day, we want as many people as possible to be able to play what what it is. We make and Microsoft is very much in the same camp of we want to help you get your games to the widest audience possible which. Means that you people are going to be able to play our games you know all over the place you know not just on a specific console, not just on your PC, but what they do with X. God streaming, and now streaming being something that we as a company have looked into and worked on some some things there in terms of moving that forward as viable. Technology that you know. Sure. I'll I'll have people playing sky rim doom fallout fill in number here on his many devices as we can, and so at the end of the day I think it is a good cultural fit at think it's a good philosophical fit and I think it's a good fit where our strengths play welded their strengths and advisers. Yeah. So so just falling because there's another question was sort of desperate Ted to ask in S, which is so you said you know protest is a good gap ripe and totally agree I mean they're assuming credible brands in the portfolio that s to has, but also you guys weren't cheap. You know the acquisition is William. It's worth mentioning your benchmark right as we as a benchmark on the. Might might benchmarked requisitions is Star Wars Disney bought star wars that was like two billion dollars, right? That's kind of my benchmark. So I large acquisitions I value in multiple. Multiple. Star. Wars. Yeah. But then. Again, I mean three point, five star wars like that is a lot of. A lot of stars that's actually more star wars than actually art films, in stores, mainland. So Seriously, though like just. Valuation, obviously, you know Microsoft sophisticated buyer you know you guys must've deserved it. But where is that value coming from? Is it the IP juicy? The value in elder scrolls fall out things like that is at the studios in the talent is it something else like if Microsoft we're gonNA say there were seven billion dollars for X. Y. and Z. What are the buckets that value is getting created We'll. Certainly it's the things that you mentioned we we do have a lot of pretty strong IP's. Elder scrolls a massive brand for US fallout doom Wolfenstein. We've we've got a lot of stuff that has value and legacy right and not stuff that we just came up with five years ago right? Doom started and Wolfenstein started the popularity of were the existence of first person shooters a really long time ago so whether it's RPG's or first person shooters I do think we have very strong piece I also believe we have really good pedigree in our studios in terms of every studio that we have. That is part of our company that we've shipped a game with has won at least one game of the year award for what they've made a except for one developer and that's pretty impressive. When you talk about a whole wide variety of studios different locations, very different genres, actions you know first person send stuff, really bloody violent kill Nazi stuff kill demons post apocalyptic fantasy. We do a lot of different stuff. So I do think there's a lot of talent I also think that and I've I've heard Phil talk about this is he had a lot of respect for the fact that it's Not just that we have talent but that were willing to take chances and try and push things forward and break ground right? We didn't just participate in Vr like we were you know primary catalyst for VR
Timeline of Trump's medical treatment for COVID-19
"Going to begin tonight with that extraordinary moment that played out just a short time ago president trump has left Walter Reed Medical Center after being taken there Friday night he has now returned to the White House tonight where he continues to battle corona virus this was the scene. Moments ago in Bethesda Maryland the president walking down the steps six, thirty, eight PM, eastern wearing a mask something we did not see him often do before being diagnosed at times he did. But now wearing that mask as he waved to the cameras, a thumbs up to the cameras you heard him say at one point. Thank you very much. He did not take any questions. Then the extraordinary moment the motorcade driving him to Marine One. Obviously, we have never seen this before this country deals with the pandemic marine one waiting for him as the president.

C. to the White House where they will pay close watch doctors acknowledging today that they will be on guard at least through. Next weekend given. The course of this earlier today is medical team coming before the cameras they treated the president aggressively with variety of medications as I mentioned some experimental along with powerful steroid and the president's Dr confirming that the president did receive that oxygen twice testing positive for covert the president's doctors saying late today, he may not be entirely out of the woods yet. In fact, the doctor said we won't know for several days from now truly how the president is faring given the normal. Course of the virus that we have seen millions of Americans fight tonight the president back at the white. House at this hour and this evening, the number growing at least eighteen people now connected to the president of tested positive eleven of them at that. Rose Garden event including introducing judge. Amy. Coney. Barrett, not have corona virus from this but several people who were at the Rose Garden have come down with it among them.

Those experimental treatments many upset with him saying don't be afraid of COVID. We begin with our chief. White House correspondent. Jonathan Karl tonight with the breaking. News. After receiving some of the most advanced medical care in the world for three nights including experimental treatments usually reserved for the most serious covert cases. President Trump tweeted today that he is heading back to the White House, telling Americans don't be afraid of Covid don't let it dominate your life. He added I feel better than I did twenty years ago. Presidents. Doctor says he gave the all clear to go home though he may not entirely be out of the woods yet. The team I agree that all our evaluations and most importantly his clinical status support the president's safe return home. We're he'll be surrounded by World Class Medical Care Twenty, four seven. So how is the president really doing? It's been nearly impossible to discern amidst a series of false or conflicting statements from the White House and the president's physician Dr Shawn Conley over the past four days. Once again, today Dr Conley refused to answer basic questions about the President's health inflammation long at all. So we we've done routine standard imaging. I'm just not at liberty discuss on Saturday, Dr Conley insisted the president was doing justifying this morning. The president is doing very well the team and I are extremely happy with the progress. The president has made he falsely told reporters the president had been given oxygen one. In fact, he had been given it twice yesterday today he was not on oxygen none of this moment and yesterday with the team while we were all here, he was not on oxygen minutes after that briefing ended White House. Chief of Staff Mark Meadows pulled reporters off to the side. With, of young, getaway. Meadows then directly contradicted the doctor saying quote, the President's vitals over the last twenty four hours were very concerning and the next forty eight hours will be critical in terms of his care. We are still not on a clear path to a full recovery. Sunday as meadows looked on his head in his hands Dr Conley admitted he had not told the truth about whether the president had been given oxygen. He acknowledged he was putting a positive spin on everything to please the patient I was trying to reflect the the the upbeat attitude that the. Team the President of course of illness had Didn't want to give any Any information might steer the course of illness in another direction and in doing. So you know came off that we trying to hide something twas necessarily true. And so have. Over the course of his hospitalization, the president staged a series of photo ops designed to project strength and to prove he was still on the job. In this photo, the president appears to be signing his name to a blank piece of paper. Yesterday the president had the secret service, drive him outside the hospital. So he could wave to the cameras and to his supporters possibly exposing the agents riding along with him to the virus the move outraged Dr, James Phillips and attending doctorate Walter Reed, who tweeted all those agents must now quarantine adding they might get sick they might die for political theater commanded by trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity Dr Phillips appeared today on. I don't know what the benefits of this political stunt were but I do know what the risks were and my concern is perhaps the secret service agents that were inside. Don't know the full risk of what they were up against there and what the real threats were. Tonight, the President returns to a White House thrown into chaos by Kobe one, thousand, nine, hundred each day more staffers getting sick today press secretary Kelly mcenaney announced. She to as tested positive for the virus for day, she has been speaking to Reporters without wearing a mask even though she has had extensive contact with both the president and with hope Hicks who tested positive last Thursday to of Macanese aides in the white.

In Cleveland, she didn't wear a mask over the weekend she was recorded by the Daily Mail jogging with her husband Jared Kushner in their Washington neighborhood both now wearing face coverings multiple sources.

House has said Abu and asked anything about where I was or who I, who I talked to or. Who Else I might infect it. They're also serious questions about why the president traveled to a fundraiser in New Jersey on Thursday after learning hope Hicks had the virus New Jersey officials are now tracing the contacts of more than two hundred people who were there with the president sources tell ABC. News. The president tested positive shortly after he returned from that trip but hours later he told Sean Hannity he was still waiting on results so. I just went for a test and we'll see what happens I mean who knows today his Dr refused to say when the president last tested negative for the virus? I. I don't WanNa go backwards s for the president seven months into a crisis that has unfolded on his watch. He now says personal experience has taught him a lot about a disease that has killed more than two hundred and ten thousand Americans it's been very interesting journey I learned a lot about Kovin.

Trump returns to White House after leaving hospital
"Minutes ago President arrived back at the White House. President Trump came back to the White House after being treated for covert 19 at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda. He had been there since Friday evening. Some outside experts are expressing concern and skepticism about how quickly the president is out. But his doctors, Sean Conley, says there are medical facilities at the White House have needed. We try to get patients home and out of the hospital. As quickly as a safe and reasonable everyday A patient stays in the hospital unnecessarily is a risk to themselves. Earlier, we talked with Aimee Goldstein, national Health Care policy writer for The Washington Post. His doctor said it a briefing mid afternoon basically, that he was well enough to go home that he hadn't had a fever and 72 hours that what they characterized as a slight
'Trying to reflect the upbeat attitude': How transparent does the president's doctor need to be?
"The other top story we're following this morning. The president's battle with coded 19. CBS News. White House correspondent Stephen Portnoy joined us live this morning to talk about how the president is doing. What the chief of staff is telling Fox News is that the president's condition continued improving overnight. And we heard yesterday from the president's doctors that it was their plan for Mr Trump to be essentially transferred from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, to the White House, where there are rather extensive medical facilities so that he can continue that ivy drip of rendez severe. And other treatments that he's been put on. We learned yesterday that his doctors have put him on a powerful steroid, which is typically recommended for critically ill covert patients with severe lung damage. The president's doctors were asked yesterday if if they've noticed anything in his lung scans, and they said well expected findings But nothing of any major clinical concern. We learned yesterday that the president has seen his oxygen levels dip twice below 94%, which is worrisome for doctors. But on the whole, the doctor's painted a very rosy picture, and that happened over the weekend both Saturday and Sunday as they gave conflicting information. First evasive answers about whether the president was on oxygen, which we later learned did happen at the White House on Friday and talking about the conflicting information we've been getting. We had heard that you know this. He's still in a critical period for this disease. So it's a bit surprising to now hear that he's going to be released, even though of course, going back to the White House is not like you are going home, right? As I say there are extensive medical facilities at the White House for the treatment of acute or serious conditions that the president might face. It requires an immediate response. So we're hoping to learn more today we A lot of it has been cast in the most optimistic tone, the president's physician, said yesterday he wanted to sort of espoused the upbeat attitude. Of the president and his senior staff, which raises questions about, you know information we're getting from the nation's top military doctors as to the president's condition. Obviously, in a crisis like this, the American people require accurate information on the health of their president. The free people of the world are looking for accurate information and tohave it cast in this rosy picture not to say it's it's It's Ah Not look when direct questions are asked, and they're answered in an evasive way. That doesn't help the public understand what's really going on.

All of which are now resolving improving. The president has been put in an I V drip of the drug Ram Desa fear, which has been shown to shorten hospital stays in some patients. The course of that medication we're told, will last for five days. He's also been given an experimental antibody cocktail. A source familiar with the president's health says his vital signs over the past 24 hours were very concerning. And that quote we're still not on a clear path to full recovery. Doctors say it is likely Mr Trump will remain hospitalized, at least for the full five day course of rendez veer. The first lady also tested positive and is recovering at home. Several others in the president's circle have tested positive for the virus, the first being hope Hicks, a senior adviser, former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, campaign manager Bill Stepien, former New Jersey governor Chris Christie, RNC chairwoman Rana McDaniel and just in the president's personal assistant.

"bethesda" Discussed on FAMcast
"The master himself Mr Tim Webber. That's me your throughout my name I did I was Working with him a little bit. I think our friends with them. Name begins with a T. which doesn't really narrow down for US know. So this this one's a little and I apologize this is This is kind of on me this one's a little. Overdue Because I wanted to talk about xbox by Bethesda for it's probably almost been a week if it hasn't been a week exactly now. Stuff's. We've been doing some stuff that you'll probably see your soon I've been working on that and we've all just had some personal stuff going on but Nin similar finally here to talk about it. and. I think. There's there's a lot to UNWRAP here. I've had some people. Go ahead. I'm just GonNa, say like it never hurts to get a reminder of this because this is such a yeah. Like big deal. This is like some little. This isn't like a little acquisition not that any I feel like anymore like even like when they announced obsidian. That was that wasn't just like a small obviously, but does a little more grander on that scale. Bright. That was still a huge deal. So here to to kind of UNWRAP that give our opinions on this none of us know what's going on and Phil Spencer's mind as far as well. We'll happen but these are just kind of our our thoughts I. Guess. Tim Easier best. Meaning talk actually called me. I kind of gave the go-ahead this. Came to me for approval thing. Okay. What do you think about this? How do you think to spend look? There's lot of avenues you can go down with, say just go for it. You got the money cash just. Yeah, Tim's like I want follow games. Next. My friends playing on any other system they all need to play with me. So yeah. There's lots of impact here. So I guess we'll just get started. So about a week ago I'm sure many of you have seen but if you didn't Microsoft spent seven point five billion dollars to acquire Bethesda. Software in cash. was in big print like they made a point. They brought bills. Did this those a semi truck. Just crates. Money. To kind of put that into perspective. Like how how much money that is to acquire with a? Disney only paid four billion to acquire star wars. So. I don't like that that obviously is a huge. That's probably the biggest media acquisition I can think of outside of you know like Disney and Fox, which is now just as big but. It was more than just Bethesda though, right like it but this is the big part of it, but it was like they acquired was cinemax. So they basically all parts of Bethesda I think it's Bethesda soft works is the is the umbrella. They've got like those do studios under there. You said, Cinemax, I forget what? All the others I thought. There was like seven total like there's this. It however, you want to say it I think it is the correct term but I always when I say It's software. So I mean think about how big that is right. So they they acquired doom dishonored fallout elder scrolls, which I think is the probably the biggest one star Field Star field. That's that's going to be interesting unknown game that never reaction will come to flirtation. I saw. Was One of those facebook articles that kind of POPs up in you're like this is definitely like fake but they're like, oh, the first screen shots from star field And Yeah I I check. I check those things out just like. I don't know sometimes it's fun to just look. I'm really interested to see. What they do with that five years from now when it when it goes into Beta. Anyway so this is obviously a really big acquisition. And I think the first thing that came never once one because they announced the day before Psi preorder live. That that wasn't that wasn't coincidence like that is a very strategic move the day before ps five or Xbox. Sorry xbox. Makes Sense Yeah. Right those. xbox. Went Life Fire. It was a whole mess the day before xbox. It'd be like, Hey, we know that. You're you're still debating these councils here's why you should pick us. Like look we're lackey and exclusive department we understand and not anymore. Yeah. And I think that's probably the I've seen this debated all over twitter I've I've honestly gone back and forth a little bit myself too. But I think the biggest question on everyone's mind is does this mean all Bethesda Games with moving forward are going to be xbox exclusive? Might Microsoft. Microsoft's rate because yes. With with game pass because now that they're a part of xbox we're talking day one launches. For for new games we're talking. Not Having to pay sixty seventy dollars right to to play it. So. I I definitely have a few opinions of my own and I'm I don't even think I'm cemented in that. But I, I, WanNa ask you first because we haven't we haven't really talked about this yet what do you think this means for Bethesda being exclusive or not exclusive to Microsoft. So I. So, here's if I'm a businessman. And I'm sitting here and I'm thinking. Okay. So Sony has some great titles. Sony has some phenomenal tiles. Titles that you literally pay. Whatever that caused that system is just to play at least myself in that list. And what can we do since we have a bunch of studios as Microsoft under our hands under under US What can we do to help even this playing field and I think if you're Microsoft at this point, you don't necessarily make them exclusive. You don't come out saying these are going to be exclusive titles. You use those as bargaining chips to get exclusives away from Sony Hey Sony you want fall out five. We want last of US hey Sony you want you but you know what I'm saying like no, I hadn't thought about that I thought you were going in a different direction you kind of were but then that's I mean that's definitely an interesting. Like plus an interesting thought I think it's a good way for them to make because let's face it. Microsoft has never been stronger in the exclusive game, right? That's really probably their biggest lackluster area when it comes to the market, is that that in itself? So how do you even the playing field you get rid of that completely by making it to where you have. A several of the biggest titles out there under your belt that you can now use. To. UNHINGE into, get those titles you want from Sony.

What I, what I thought originally was so interesting about your business is and I was talking actually to my class about this today 'cause we were discussing leagues in League business models and things like that, and you know the differentiating between third party organizers like ESL and Dream Hack and and publisher own leagues like Overwatch League or call of duty great and and one of the comments I made to my class. Which I believe very strongly is that because East sports is all of a sudden seen as a revenue source not as a cost right as an expense but as a true potential source of revenue more and more game publishers will want to control. I. Think Their Own East sports destiny right? We'll want to have their own functionality will not want to outsource to third parties to to do that and I think. What was so cool about what you're doing is in some ways, you allow any publisher to that to take control of their e sports. Destiny

Of course, I do want to start this episode by saying Lucy Welcome back in your new setting your new locale. Yes. Sir for anyone watching this podcast. I am I moved I moved apartments I now on a new apartment it's a little syllable spacious. Sorry I apologize if I'm a little echoey. Also very, it's kind of like I feel like I'm mid or A. An. Enclosed space like closing because nothing on the walls, it's very clinical but it's very nice to be in space. It is more than six hundred square foot. I'm I'm excited to see how it progresses throughout the weeks. On my face hugger. Hanging hanging precariously I feel like it's going to draw my head and thousand gifts will be on it really ties the room together. Of course aside from face huggers, we do have quite a bit to talk about especially with this week's news while yes I know it is a little bit xbox focused. It does affect the playstation five. Because of the fact that xbox announced, they're buying Bethesda and DENIMEX media in general. So just to give a little background on what this story wasn't case, you somehow missed it. Microsoft proper announced, they were purchasing all of the Max media. So that is. Our Kane but does the software the studio itself Machine Games I.

The already announced Sony Conflicts -clusive like death Lupin Goes Meyer will still be honored. So those will still hit he has five council exclusive but presumably, they're also coming to PC and given that Microsoft makes a lot of PC's they probably don't mind too much. And then further, from that, we don't really know what future games will be released on a we will be getting of course elder scrolls online is on all fours that still seems to me like it will be on all platforms any newly announced game stuff like star field, elder scrolls six, any of those games and beyond Microsoft has said on a case by. Case basis other Bethesda Games will come to other non Microsoft platforms. I did want to note this is sort of a weird situation because Bethesda will still be the publisher of these Games there essentially because they're being owned by Microsoft and not just under the xbox game studios portfolio, they are xbox studios, but they are also Bethesda published studios. So it's a weird. Bit of red tape there I guess to just be aware of. I did. Of, course, when ask your initial reactions to this news? Obviously, we're recording this today after be hearing a couple of days after. Lucy I'll start with you I. know there was a lot of rush to get a lot of coverage of this up on Jan, obviously from both sides of things. But what was sort of your initial reaction to this news semi.

"Wait for minecraft doom. But now it's. That way that probably. Wolfenstein minecraft, yeah? Yeah. The bigger deal though is that now because they are a Microsoft Studio Studio. These new games as they come out will be made available on Xbox Game Pass Day and date right. So, this is really huge to me heart of that cloud slash subscription. Yeah. Push that Microsoft has just started. And yeah. I mean this is what we're getting to the point for a Gamer where xbox game pass might be getting into no-brainer territory. You know smart chat rooms having fun coming up with Mashups pitfall now. We'll be. he knocks Harrington says in the new halo master chief will be sidelined by an Arrow to the knee. That's very jettison, Bethesda? She's definitely get that. But I know that reference now because someone used it on twitter. Yeah. It's classic Sky Rim line. no I think there's a there's this is really. This. Is going to be very interesting. And by the way, it makes me cry even more that I wasn't able to. Get these thirty, five dollar Microsoft xbox series X. Deal. You could get the beaten. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA. Get to that. Yeah they also. Very happy very. How Oh those? Yeah. This is a a failure of azure scale ability if there's ever been when I, what A. What a fiasco save that though. Because yeah. You want to spend some time with it so We'll talk about that. So what does this tell you about Microsoft's Ambitions in in gaming an Xbox, and well, how does this fit in with their other ambitions in with the cloud and things like that I mean you know a Place Right. Now because they are releasing consoles and those aren't really the primary focus on the future for them. Right and they obviously, they want us all consoles but hardware is an expensive business to be an I typically loses money they're looking for this. You know the razor blades here. In this case, you know the in in the back of the day, it was games, and now it's game subscription services to kind of float those customers and make the make sense financially. So what this is doing is stocking up that stable that they have of games that are available, B. Xbox, game, pass, and cloud streaming. And it just makes this entire ecosystem better for Gamers, it makes it more of a destination to go to. Sony is doing the same thing they've always done which by the way has worked for sure I mean I'm not I'm not dumping on that, but they want you to buy an expensive new consoles. They want you to buy games you know and Sony Microsoft is saying you don't have to buy a console. Play Games almost anywhere. It's only a few places now but eventually, obviously anywhere. What we want you to do subscribe to the service. You'll be able to play in. You know depending on the capabilities of the system using you'll. You'll have a better experiences as you Kinda, go up the chain but. this stuff works basically everywhere the Microsoft's do the game certainly do so I think that's cool plus you know obviously, they have cross platform already these guys. have PC games that they probably sell through steam they have playstation games. The playstation store that's not GonNa Change Right but you know. If, you have it with the subscription and stuff comes out deal. See for a game, a new game whatever you're just going to get that. You know and I like I said, it's not quite no-brainer depending on the types of games you WANNA play. But before this acquisition, there were one, hundred, sixty, seven games, I think it was in game passes another fifty plus coming from EA play and whatever the stable is of Bethesda. Games, it's gotTA. Be. Several dozens of games you know. So it's definitely going to go over two hundred. It's it's it just tells me they're serious about gaming if I know that's a silly thing to say on the verge of a console but we've been we not we you know meet specifically. But Week as a community baby have doubting Microsoft seriousness in this market for years. You know and they've lost each generation so far with the consoles. Longest only means that they didn't sell as many, right? Yes but I. Made Zero Money I mean xbox as a business. Has Not, been profitable for Microsoft why I'm wondering why they're spending seven and a half billion dollars for money losing business. Because now gaming is going to the cloud and all of a sudden. There's this wonderful convergence with Microsoft's keep one of Microsoft's strikes. they are one of the few companies although again, the the X. box series sex buying experience suggests otherwise but that has the capacity, the infrastructure, and the will right to do this kind of thing they're gonNA, do it for other companies you know back when there was an announcement where Sony was partnered with Microsoft to bring some future game service to Azure my thought was like this could be a big chunk of what is the future of the xbox business. You know they may not Brandon but providing game hosting services for other companies like activision or while he as Microsoft out. But you know there could be other big game publishing studios that want to do this kind of thing as well. On nintendo would be an obvious choice while right the other console maker they don't have any. Expertise capability with regards to cloud computing at all. They can't even they can barely released mobile games. So they would be an ideal tristate come to Azure. Or? Crazy to think about, remember it just a few years ago we were all speculating if Microsoft was going to sell off the xbox division, do you remember this? Of course. They're not really into gaming like it doesn't fit with the rest of the company and now look what's happening right? It's like one hundred, eighty change. They make these big bets, right so people forget that xbox really started before the original xbox before it was called xbox because they were working with on the must of the Jancis the dreamcast and there was a window C. environment in there and that was going to be a one way that people could make aims and no one ever did or whatever. But I, think that taught Microsoft that they needed to kind of control the environment and the first xbox is basically a PC. It was kind of technically successful it. You know it didn't win the market or whatever, but it did well. Unit. Sales Wise xbox three sixty was break pressure. They were going to be like apple beautiful white device super sleek,.
"bethesda" Discussed on What's Good Games
"We have the definitive answer that, yes, it's a timed exclusive. It will be coming to PC and xbox eventually We don't know how long that exclusivity period is. But if we do feel like this is kind of kicking places knees a little bit. You know what I mean when you like kick someone in the back of the knees and the like. A little based dumble met yet. kind of feel like that's what Microsoft is doing the playstation. In this moment I think the green is my seahawk sweatshirts or chroma keyed out. It's Hilarious I'm like what is happening over here? Oh you know why? Because I? Think I still have the still have filter. I think sell the filter on. Let me take that off. That's kind of funny. Yeah I'm totally with you. So we got a lot of questions on dear WG and the number. One question we got was essentially what's going to be exclusive here and what's not and I think the number one we'll. We'll take this question from walking junior here. What franchises do you think will be exclusive in the future my bet is make tons followed. An elder scrolls will be put everywhere while Niche Games like Wolfenstein in dishonored stay on xbox thinks reading hope you'll have a great day. So this leads into the question as in earlier what does does do at these? I feel like they have a lot of options the first option I see. Is They keep their games exclusive one hundred percent exclusive and they launch Dan Day on xbox game pass and that would draw up. So much interest in the xbox ecosystem end grow it right. So I see that option another option is timed exclusivity. We see this a lot of the industry you elder scrolls six or star field will start field or both You can get it on Xbox game, pass region pc or whatnot for the first six months to twelve months. Cool or you can wait. Or I. See you just pick and choose like Emmett is suggesting what franchises go where or you released them everywhere. So Andrew Do you have a gut? Feeling? What would you do? I think that they keep all of us as games multi-platform much like minecraft system multi-platform back but does the has too long of a history in the gaming community and gaming culture for them to gatekeeper. Credibly, stupid. Move of Microsoft to do that. I. Think it would. So a lot of anger in but does does communities particularly knowing how rich they're PC history is? Not to say that, you can't obviously play those games on pc because you can but I just I don't know why they would want to. Exclude playstation players that way especially also let's not forget about Nintendo but does has been bringing their games to switch recently I think that's something to consider as well. I don't know why they would want to block all of those tens of millions of gamers out of first off buying Bethesda game. But also. Experiencing, but does the products and also being part of that community. So I think with the ever you know reaching spread of cross play and how there's project x clouds still the x factor here for lack of a better phrase and how that figures in I. I don't see them making any of those titles exclusive. Yeah Lever I do realize. that. I'm not recognizing in that statement that Bethesda made their game exclusive with playstation. So I don't know honestly like I don't want to see those games go xbox exclusive, I don't but. Yeah it's their studio now. So we'll see it's hard because obviously a lot of people would be very very pissed off if these Games are true blue like exclusive, never coming to another system yet again and plus you know missy now that seventy dollars copy. You. That's a huge revenue stream that you would be cutting off. But yeah, it is interesting that you mentioned death Lupin, ghost wire which are timed exclusives for the PS five. I feel like time exclusive is what I would do again. Head of xbox I don't have all the business knowledge. No all but I feel like that would make them. Well, fuck see the more you dive into it the more you see the pros and cons of each right. Yeah I, think the way that I look at if you look at, let's just go back to Phil statement here right. So in addition to such a dollar statement as well, you know talking about making the next generation of gaming. This journey and how they want to they want to kind of break down those barriers and have games be available everywhere like the statement that filled just keeps making over and over again is we want to take those walls down those barriers between the platforms. We want the gaming community to be more united. They've been really beating that drum for the last six months and I don't see why when they're beating that drum that they would then. Light, that German fire and throw. Like actually fuck this trump fuck this. Yeah it doesn't make sense to me make sense to me that they would use a minecraft strategy in publicist published with other games everywhere. Yeah it does but then it's like well, why would you spend seven point five, billion dollars like Now, that is the question that I would really like to know for reference. Microsoft bought Mo Yang the company who created Mike Craft for two point five billion dollars. And, that includes obviously worldwide rights and merchandise, etc etc I. Think What's interesting about that number is way higher than I anticipated. Bethesda hasn't really had a lot of big blockbuster hits recently their last big hit that went on to do like hundreds of millions in revenue was skyer him. So I think that we need to look about and go hey, is the elder scrolls the most valuable property, but does a stable I.

"Let's go. Okay nothing. You're you're. You're. Beds you will take. Good. Rule. Through. Boy. Oh, boy. Oh good. So for people who aren't familiar with this show and for audio listeners I do encourage you to check out the trailer. We have it on our twitter we have it on our youtube page. We originally did this as part of the launch facebook watch. Back and we've been wanting to bring it back and we just haven't really quite found the right time and we said you know what? Let's bring it back in a new way. Let's do spooky streams and so our goal is to hopefully cut these down and make them into youtube videos very similar to the episodes that were in the original series. But we're starting with streams because we love the idea of interactivity and there's actually quite a few games that have things that you can do to influence what's happening so more on that later but Brittany was mentioning the first game that we're going to play pacify. It's going to be great. I'm very I've always wanted to explore a haunted house you injury and I feel like this is the closest GonNa get. Awesome. Well like a real haunted house. Yes. But we did get to do Halloween horror nights last year. Oh. Yeah. We did that was a good time with one. Alana. Pearson fact. In same hung in there for a few houses to proud of her she she did real good. She didn't go at all and we forced her into or like Sammer. Team building is it'll be fine. Trust each other a lot that night you know hey, others, baths. It's true. All, right. Well, without further ado, let's get into the news. So Brittany, there was just a small announcement this morning where Microsoft reveal that they have acquired Xeni Max media four, the low bargain price of seven point five, billion dollars like, yeah. This is the point where you put your fucking pinky up to your mouth and you Dr Evil this shit because there's never been a more appropriate time the now. So here we go I'm GonNa absolutely yet you just keep your pinky up the critically acclaimed creators of the elder scrolls fallout Wolfenstein doom dishonored, quake, Star field, and more join team xbox. Of course, we are talking about Bethesda software then he max media is their parent company. toot two, thousand, three, hundred people worldwide make up some of the most accomplished creative studios in our industry rights feel Spencer in a statement on xbox dot. com. Across but this off works but does the game studios software is any Max Online, Arcane Machine Games Tango Alpha Dog and Roundhouse Studios. These are the teams responsible for franchises like the elder scrolls fallout Wolfenstein doom dishonored prey quake, the upcoming star field, and many more. They will be adding but does iconic franchises to xbox game pass for consul and PC. Now, there was a couple of different statements that happened this morning and I'm just GonNa read a little bit more fills and then we'll look at Pete hines and we'll look at tot Howard says well, over the last few weeks, we've been excited to share more detail on important elements of a plan we have been building toward for years a plan that is the fulfillment of a promise to you the xbox player to deliver the most performance immersive incompatible next gen gaming. Experiences and the freedom to block to play blockbuster gains with your friends anytime anywhere today is a landmark step in our journey together and I'm incredibly energized by what the step means for. xbox and then the CEO of Microsoft at large Della tweeted three billion people look to gaming entertainment community and achievement, and our ambition is to empower each of them wherever they play. Today is a step forward on that journey as we welcome the beloved studios and Franchises of Bethesda to xbox, which is wild to think that three billion people around the world play Games. Yeah. That's pretty cool. He gave me an his everywhere everywhere. It's everywhere. And then we had to statements from the folks on the Bethesda side Pete Hines, the VP of global marketing communications. We Love Pete Hines. He is absolutely awesome. He had a very long post. So I just cut a little snippet down where he says, we have a long history of working with Microsoft our company share many of the same basic principles we believe in a culture. That values passion quality collaboration, and innovation. When I think back to the first time, we decided to shift from being a PC only developer and make more wind for the original xbox. It was a move that countless people said would never work nobody on counsel's wanted a game that big and complex Microsoft believed in US and so did you and now RPG's of all shapes and sizes are hugely successful on consoles, and soon, the conversation will move on from this deal to talking about our games again and I can. Get back to answering the questions that get us all excited. Tell me more about death loop one. Can I see more ghost wire? What's coming in Q. Four for the elder scrolls online I want to see more of the do eternal deals when the hell will you tell me about star fields he knows I'm excited for those conversations and look forward to talking to you all about that and much much more in the weeks months and years ahead and then todd Howard also had very lengthy statement which I'm not Entirely of just a little snippet, he references the beginnings of Bethesda as well. Also mentions more went on xbox and then says. I was dubious xbox more wind would be worth the time somewhat on a technical level but more. So from taking a hardcore RPG and moving it from a PC desktop experience to a controller and Sofa experience if we made it work would people want it Microsoft and their new xbox crew had a view that I came to share completely shouldn't we allow anyone? To have this experience, why does it matter where the screen is or what the controller is there are many people without the same access and we can bring it to them which I loved. So there is a ton of questions about what's happening with this but Brittany Yeah. What was your? What was your immediate reaction? Oh Lord have mercy. Okay. Yeah. So I. Found the article I. Jan. this morning and Streaked like a banshee and no one heard me sadly actually is probably a good thing. But no, I mean I think it's just a lot of shock a lot of like, okay. This isn't a move that I would expect. Microsoft to make especially since they've been kind of talking about how exclusives and not really a priority or whatnot are you know they're not trying to sell all the causal to try and work at people in the ecosystem? Anyway that's like how I feel. Like Microsoft has presented their case going into this next generation for them to acquire fucking then Amax of all of all publishers is a huge deal and yeah, I think now it's just a lot of questions as of what does this mean for the future of these games? What's going to be exclusive? What's not going to be exclusive holiday because there's so many ways that Microsoft can tackle this right how are they going to position themselves businesswise to sell these games? There's a lot. It's a lot to Andrea. Sorry I like a little cough happening. Good job. You did good. Yes. I think that there's a ton of people that have the same questions as well and I think what's really interesting is they tried to get out ahead of some of these rights the. Death loop and Tokyo ghost wire questions were very valid. Reich because playstation made a very big deal that these were going to be council exclusives, and then there was that little snafu with is coming to pc not is that a time exclusive and now.

Otherwise you just log Heated and no matter what you do, I think eventually sooner or later you're going to be managing people.

For instance. Jim QuickBook. Limitless has brought me more about speed reading mind mind exercises to increase my memory and mental acuity. It's a phenomenal book.

"But now I have another item on my to do list and I have to take care of it before I can leave I meant what I said to gene about the sort of eye witness who was currently convalescing in Bethesda it sucks that he caught wind of me it sucked that he caught a bullet that was meant for me hello is such that he got caught up in all this at all com or no call he was proof literally living proof that I've been at the center of that message and everything I learned over the years about how to do certain get away clean told me that this was simply not something I could let go he was a close and that needed to be titled slipping into a secure military hospital sounds difficult but not when you have a top secret cloaking device when everyone inside already thinks your nurse I'm on the right floor in the correct ward before I even have to put the suit on I stare at it for a minute it's an impenetrable impossible matte black but at the same time if you gaze into the fabric it's every color in the spectrum feels good to put it back on I realize it bonds to my skin that I've been missing it I feel stronger like twice myself I shake out of this Bilbo Baggins moment and exit the bathroom stall I sneak easily around the two slopes we got stuck guarding a coma patient and enter the Molly guys room he's alone in his bed breathing slowly through to machine sharp all around them I approached the bed and check the name on the chart John Doe of course luckily I'm wearing psychic pajamas I lean in and put my hand over his and.

"Servers you're going to be able to play later also even if you can totally play by yourself i'm sure there's like a ton of endgame shit and content that you just don't see just like in whatever other mo but my point was i feel like they just made this terrible terrible miscalculation their whole marketing team just really fucked that up advertising it teasing it the first teaser will really the stream hyped everybody else the first hyped everybody up the first teaser made it seem like a single player traditional fallout game then they may people wait nine days to see more than they tease it again at xbox with yet another trailer that made people think it was a traditional single payer actually got a whole bunch of tweets after that xbox filler from people being like oh see it's a single player game oh jason really fucked up till i ever owned it was multiplayer game and it just seems like such i mean usually i feel like bethesda is pretty good especially bethesda game studios todd our studios pretty good about marketing their games and like selling them but this just just seem seemed like like they've never had to market a game that wasn't the you know one of their trishul game so this is kind of new territory for i'm personally not worried at bent out of shape about it or anything i like i like we said before i've played a ton of all at four three and i've sort of a lot of these games down to try something different so i'm fine with so the interesting thing is that you know that they were sitting in a room and they were saying okay so fall out sony six is going to piss people off we have to tell everyone what else we're working on and so taught our came out and he said hey we're working on to other things this nexgen sifi our star field and the elder scrolls six which is in pre production and afterwards he said that star field is in production i still think it's a ways away especially since it's gen but he also said that elder scrolls six is in pre production so if i had to guess i would say we'll see star field around twenty twenty and elder scrolls six like twenty twenty two or something like that.

"I like games that are like that every once in a while yeah me too it seemed like a very distinct new approach from bethesda this year usually they are very focused on games that you were going to play in the next year they have a very sort of small list of games in they're gonna show them to you but they're not gonna talk of anything too far out and they seem to have made it very big decision to change that tact we saw dum dum game doom eternal which just got a teaser trailer no actual game play the debs came out and said we're working on it's gonna be cool we'll tell you more about it at quite con so not tons of information but i know we were all big fans of the doom reboot felt like a new doom was coming i think it's a real smart decision for them not to have shown any doom stuff because it feels steps on rage to a little bit because they're both highoctane quick paced connectik shooters with demons newton's and stuff it felt it feels in the same wheelhouse and i think it was smarter than to let rage to have that spotlight but i'm sure we're all excited for a new doom game to find out more about that yeah then we got a quick champions i don't even know what to say about quick champions schrief any basic quick thirty eventually access version of quake if if i kinda like that i don't know if you've ever played that unreal tournament that the caz on yeah i have yeah it's sorta like that it's like you know it's like an alpha version like felt like a fan made kind of like constantly updated version of the game i mean it's fun i may have played around with it a bit but.

"Is that your prediction no i do have a while prediction though so you think so you think well so the other thing that everybody thinks might happen is that forever ago bethesda trademarked something called star field and people for whatever reason assume like thought that was going to be the bethesda game studios next new ip they've talked about wanting to do a new ip and i think that's yeah i think that's the other thing that pathetic game sues is working on its seventy six and then this other thing called star field whatever that may be maybe it's a space sifi rpg like in the elder scrolls six star field yeah that'd be deysi the saints takes takes into the star field region we all know about that from the lor yeah so maybe we'll see some sort of teaser for that so yes teasers as a possible yeah i think that there will be i i mean i that would be cool and i'm sticking by that prediction i still have that happens i feel like teasers for new p like for whole new idea don't work that well only because a teaser generally works better rate for an established thing where you see it and you know shit we're getting another of those so you kind of have a frame of reference for if star field and it shows a i don't know there's like some sifi blips i mean i guess that would get enough people saying as they're making some sifi game but that's well actually i mean if anything could get away with that it's star field because the entire internet will flip out just at the name star field because everyone's been talking for the yeah.

"Mark in bethesda mark you are on w a l you got questions about this or you wanna just sound off go ahead yeah hey larry thanks for taking my call i really appreciate your show and how you keep digging deeper and deeper into this rat hole it's quite astounding one of the things that i was thinking about is these these former officials clapper comey and so forth you know they still i think many of them still have their security clearances and you know in this town having a security clearance when you're outside of the government or even if you're working for a contractor is pretty valuable and i was thinking that you know them having their clearances that could make it so that they could be talking to people that are still in government about things that are pretty sensitive and i'm wondering why don't why doesn't president trump issue an executive order this well within his privilege to do so to just basically cancel the security clearances of all these officials that quite frankly are acting completely off the rails it it and i think that that's something they should definitely contemplate here's the thing i think president trump should do one of two moves if not both moves right now that should be one of them to immediately order a review of the clearances that brennan komi and clapper currently enjoy and the second thing i think you should do because i think it would just be a brilliant trumpian move is to immediately exercise pardon power and grant a pardon to barack obama come on this this would be great because he can say listen i've i've learned enough now and i see where this is headed that some pretty bad stuff happened under barack obama's watch but i want you to know that i don't think our country should go through this i don't i'm gonna follow in gerald ford's footsteps that no good can come out of a indictment or criminal prosecution of past precedent so barack obama i am granting you.
