"And absolutely insane on so now is the fact that two of the Games that watched it. We're fighting games. Oh Jackie Bradley League. Some of the worst fighting games needed the this is why big mergers by like monitors no input land to learn at. Yes isn't fighting is because of that. It's just the way to go because those are objectively to be good at it. You gotta be on the second on the money. Money and the fact that Samurai showdown M. K.. Eleven washed on Stadia and. Let's put it this way. There's a recent wants to talk about how bad they run. The input lag is atrocious. Roche's even streetfighter five on console the rollback problems where you would just. How do you jump in the air and all of a sudden be on the ground because depending on how bad your lag was and your connection with someone else like? It's just crazy. The fact that they launched all these online games I play Games wit stayed. Yeah as if that's even a thing. Oh and not to mention on top of being like all with all these network dishes the fact that we knew that probably the only countries in the world of the Internet that could run in Japan and Korea. RIA probably who have gone Internet but other than that. It just has these many problems but the problems they of course also came out half baked always multiplayer share features the fact that you're supposed to be able to watch twitch dreamer and then if you like the parts of the plane that stranded right where the game apparently starts at ten hours in right and then you're like okay. Wow at our ten actually looks like my jam ups deliveryman simulator in the beginning. But I actually like ten plus I kind of want to check it out from there. Then maybe I'll start my own. Yeah you're supposed to be able to like get like safe. File builds often like the thing being and be like okay start from where where he streaming there. I want to start there and you were supposed to be able to do that. And whatever I think it was gonna be like Jeevan Locker. Whatever but guess what achievements? Ms Didn't even launch at the stadium. So there's that as well I remember when we went through the list of like thirty stadia. Promise that weren't going to be at launch. It was insane like so so much missing like it was crazy. It's a novel idea. I understand X.. Cloud and everything you. It's a novel idea. I think we're there. I'm not gonNA defend right right right. They don't make all these promises and then like released that bullshit like the bought it because right right Oh yeah oh yeah yeah that was one of the great. Things is on launch day so many people got an email. That said you're there's an issue with your with your stadium a order. Please Click here to resolve canceling people's orders. They're probably happy it was. It was a mess of a launch. It was the lodge I really think a year to a year and a half tops before they announce the status because Google has one of the biggest graveyard hard list of all time. I understand they also have master. Lana Tech State Yeah. I don't think you want things are going to master. It's time the world is the idea of being able to go from your phone your laptop to your console. It's not it's a future in bladerunner that would have been a cool idea but we're not in a world you know we don't at live with that kind of crazy thing ed cuddling under so good. I just wanted to talk about later but yeah the blade runner all those woes about the stadium like tears in the rain again. I know this but I wanNA talk. Talk about when stadium when Google so proud of when they said they were releasing the gender-neutral control which white black and green uh-huh which already exist on every platform million colors already man. He was so proud of himself and he made that announcement. xbox WCHS DOPE. Yeah when it comes to control. The color options playstation has some okay ones but xbox I have ah purplish dude. I love that one from the land. I love you can be because there are third party. People people who will do that for your playstation with Josh that this one podcast I like a woolly. He got one from this. One third party company completely custom the controller which ended up causing a lot. Because he did the whole color he did a certain texture on the back then he did like actual like like a scarf. The actual switches like actual like click back like triggers and everything triggers redone and because he wanted it primarily for Fighting's that he was GonNa play on pad like again K. and whatnot and like it was insane but he said like it's cool because you can do your level of customization doing more reasonable price point that he went all in because if he's going to do a customer is going to go a lot subscribe once and make it yours but yeah. I love the fact that the lab exists and I think playstation six comes out that maybe they'll probably start doing that and it should be if if you really cool thing. I think we're already a year away from the transition point though it's already almost xbox and PS five time in a year. You're just cool. It'll be really interesting because right now. The only reveal a game award the first reveal for. PS Five has gone fall which I saw the gearbox logo that harvey turned off but the good thing is gearboxes only publishing it. So there's that there's also kind of interesting right up with the name. Some of it is. I'd never heard of them before down. But the interesting thing though is the fact that ever since the David eddings accusations before borderlands three Dropped where Randy Pitchford. He's been accused of many things leaving thumb drive filled with porn and borderlands three plans at a children's restaurants and he he also children's restaurant right and then also going up to different employees and thinking it's funny to give them willies when they're trying to develop a game as well L. as a lot of other questionable things like being at the hotel of a gaming conference where everyone's kind of chilling out grabbing the a claptrap voice actor by the collar and physically assaulting them so but ever since that last one because ready over bridges also magician. He's also the one Who lied about early? Colonial Marines being good So there's a lot of things done but ever since the accusations with backed up proven testimony came out out about him actually being confirmed by several people to have assaulted at as he's been out of the limelight gone full he's been nowhere in the press. Ever since Borderlands Orlands three has dropped he has been. He's been sealed in a box away somewhere and it's really interesting how it took. It took an assault charge. The shut this man. This guy who has said gaming critics are trying to fall CAM got into it with Jim Sterling versus where you're trying to bake people into shit talking to you and sterling with them and all this stuff. It's just crazy. He's always been a pariah but finally they took that and shut him up. which is you know? Get to shame you know we all. I want to say everyone in this room. I include it probably had a blast with borderlands two three but two was one one of the most fun multiplayer experiences. I remember ever have hundred Kamini true. Yeah through so so hard again playing to the much borderlands pretty good though also play an extra coat because there's one so yeah there is already it was good yes four I think so. The question is extra cold on what system astor of steam steam. So I'm saying that yeah that'd be cool Telltale Cochran kind of one of them. Okay there you go so yeah yeah. We'll see what's happening happening there you go. Yeah no it's great man you'll love that and we love borderlands you'll love speaking of tell eh Mongasutu. Everyone gets to move amongst because I am because easily my most favorite absolute thing the but a call back the last episode still wary because telltale proper. So here's what it seems like happened to the tell. Tell people what it looks like happened is investors realized that when you contract people and you can cut as you go. It's more profitable all right. Well a lot of times when there was like a shaky a bit of shakiness shareholders and telltale because they're just not being managed properly and stuff like that it seems like there's continuing telltale with mercenaries instead of a proper insured staff with health insurance benefits. So it happened happen to come around that they closed down quote unquote lay everybody off keep a couple of choice people and now are running everybody on the job to job. Turn the contractor. Now it's a little it's a little shady which is a shame but if all the moments too is good did it'd be really hard for me to not want to jump in on somebody. Yeah physically. That is something that bobby caught it at activision. Blizzard would love to do. That's like a dream right there. I just love the fact that bobby cannot go on dates now because when you search without any joking these just search bobby Kartik take a bunch of pictures with him and devil horns come up. That is bobby cutter you Satan like. That's just what it is like. It's just funny though but yeah he has admittedly. It's hard for him to get into dates because they google but so yeah. There's there's no it doesn't suck. It's Bobby Shit. A hand speaking of pieces of Shit right in the news. We didn't talk about last time. People are getting a little bent out of shape that we didn't talk about riots announcements around the TJ time. So having a Brian Aside League match so aside being extremely misogynistic dude Bro Company. Right obviously one of the most totally nontoxic communities of all time legal edges anyways always so they can be a bit much and the company themselves not the greatest the people but they did announce that they have six knicks spin off titles in the works which is really interesting on top of that they have an animated series as well as a mobile version of Lee coming out which God so we'll see the immortal L. but anyways so without being the case though they seem to be trying to keep the free to play model for all their stuff. Now now I didn't realize how many characters existed league now first of all is like over one hundred something now which is like how do you keep that balance you don't. There's only a certain light handful of people that are used because everyone else. Because how do you balance that overwatch. Blizzard Blizzard has shown. Sometimes they have a hard time balancing the however mail like the thirty people had an hour. Whatever it is so you can imagine trying to balance one hundred and forty something? Whatever their two league now l. just crazy just absolutely insane but anyways I've always found the league character designs cool? I found the lower interesting but I've just never been able to get into you and not just because it's a mobile because let's just put it this way. The community lives up to their reputation and toxicity. Ever if you don't believe me and you've never played league before fired up. Play A pug display a random unranked game and how many people get so angry that you're just trying to learn the game not even gets into the fact that you're like rank one or anything like that just getting so angry like pat from superbeets was talking about being toxics. Yeah no it's not even a joke like Pat superbeets got into it recently and he's been really into it. He's like in there now but he was playing it and he said what he was new and he didn't know any of these terms people just got to just be like leash and he what leash and he's I instead of explained as leash. And then he did. Some route moved moved wrong and they got so pissed off. And you're just like why don't you tell me to do relations anyways. Let's the older. We Big Bang on all day about how bad the community is and talks the only time I ever had fun with what we were. Greek itself is fine. Yeah Yeah it's just the communities bit much and then reputation in a and the learning curves of it's steep too because not only you have to learn the game how to play the game. They have to learn how to build so it's very different than your usual. Just basic stats game. Yeah that's kind of what I kind of prefer at least those type of games. I really really liked heroes of the storm because it doesn't have any of that bill full years old armed over the only want..
'Borderlands 3' voice actor turned down role because Gearbox ‘wouldn’t go union’
"One on the report why Troy Baker isn't in borderlands three this is Kirk Kirk mckean over vg twenty four seven. If you remember we're of course do this whole Brouhaha for months. Now Randy Pitchford was asked on twitter. Hey is going to be reese. Randy said no troy turned down in Troy. I didn't turn it down. You guys said No. There's been back and forth. It's been ugly here's Kirk at VGA twenty four seven. We recently got a chance to talk to Baker during a fan event for wrestler replay. Let's play series the actor host alongside the other Troy Baker Nolan north. I love that during our chat he was openly disappointed that he didn't get a chance to play reese again in Borderlands Orlands three quote so they came to me and they were like do you want to do this. Baker explained which I said absolutely and then they made it impossible for me to do the role. It had nothing to do with money money. It had nothing to do. It had nothing to do with money. It had nothing to do with money. They just simply would not go about doing it the way that we needed to be done so then it it was like I never said no gosh I I worry Detroit. No he was talking to a reporter. It sounds like he's had a retro replay thing with Guinness just sitting there talking we we asked Baker to clarify what he meant by this scheduling conflicts or something else quote no it was simply a matter that they wouldn't go union. He replied and I can't do a non union union GIG without getting too deep into the weeds of that we had long conversations about this. We always knew going into it that this was going to be the thing they're gonNa take these characters and put them from put them from the tales from the series from telltale into Borland's proper. I've been waiting for this call. They were like do you want to do this and I said yes. They never they never because they would never move from that position. I'm not mad is invariably a complicated different. I'm sorry it's invariably a completely different different character but it's still sings stings fuck. It's hard to read quotes that are like just talking yeah. When it's a prepared quote we all go this garbage quote or a written word in general but when Choi's they're they're doubling up sentences over jabbing now the fun little kind of funny thing that we can do that but I want? I was going to bring in Chad's question because I think there's interesting. relation dossier Chad wrote in to Patriot dot com slash Kinda Funny Games says morning folks with the reveal this morning that Baker as a sack after member couldn't minute reprise his role of reese in Borland's three because gearbox wouldn't go union. Do you think this is something we'll see more of. Do you think this now becoming such a high profile story will before the hands of publishers to allow voice actors to unionize. I also wonder how often this happens. Considering it took one of if not the most popular voice actors sorry known to to make a headline that said I love the solitary solidarity intrigue continues to demonstrate that he is one of the kindest humans lot also. Let Your Voice Actors Union is Randy what the fuck cheers so yes. I already know where you're going with. This is an interesting story. If you all remember we hear kind of funny didn't animated series called kind of funny the animated series in episode one principal Christopher Walken it was played by Donna Troy Baker and the idea of course is that that'd be reoccurring character throughout throughout the entire run of the animated series well on top of that he was going to play two characters. He was gonNA play the principal. He was also gonNA play Troy who was like the Guy Oh I do. Remember who was a character in the show that just doesn't ever have voice yeah and the reason he doesn't have a voice is he's a Wendy's boyfriend. I remember that yeah I'd beef with Troy and we we we did a he pulled favor. I totally which is a gal do fucking voice view. He ended up getting kind of in trouble for it. It was more of a slap on the wrist. If you can't be doing that Shit so dr like hey we want to do the whole like series a kind of social. Whatever the hell it was at that point we had to go through his people and he didn't want to be that way he was he's like dude? I want to do this. Let's make it work but us us especially back then be the people we were. We got maybe two steps into that process and we're oh man it's complicated and it's going to require not too much money but the way that the money had to go was too complicated for what we were set up for gearbox they can handle that shape this and nothing that's of course the argument to be made here right is that kind of funny in the spare bedroom at the kitchen table and nick riding on these scripts was not the same as gearbox however there's a lot of different stuff going on here. Remember that when the David eddings lawsuit stuff was happening right and he was saying he that when he got replaced as claptrap this is a similar thing right that he left left in some he he worked at gearbox did the voice of claptrap and didn't get paid extra because of it. That's not the payment thing. I don't know anything about that other than what eddings has talked about publicly but that's still seems to be the case with how they do the voices in general right after the troy thing happened. I wondered if it was this based on what had happened with us. We obviously we had never had that kind of sag work a conversation before because we never did something like that before so it'd been so much time between borderlands two boroughs three I wondered after this happened with Troy was a union thing and then on top of that. I wonder how that would affect one actually burch who of course tiny team in the game is in the game. It is actually on the economy com slash wrong if I'm wrong about that doing tiny Tina's voice like I was wondering how she got around it because that's the other thing within the union ship makes everything so complicated. No longer on unions do a lot of great. I'm good. I'm not saying they're bad but I know like when I go and do the Lego Games because I'm not union. I have to do Taft Hartley Agreement. That's something weird like I. There's like paperwork on top of paperwork that is like we're bringing this person in because he s voice because of x y and Z yeah and so you know it's this weird thing of also talking to an extent here but for a long time not forever a longtime telltale didn't use SAG after voice actors obviously towards the end the change we're talking about in the borderland right here troy's in that obviously laurabeets in that all that but I remember and I'd have to go look at it now. There's there's something different about the credits where if you look through the credits of a telltale game where they use both union and non union they get credited in different ways interesting. There's so many intricate streak. I can't even talk to complications to use voice sag person or a a union voice actress nonunion voice actor that I I do wonder what this means for. How gearbox does it? You know I think chat ask in general I don't think so because I don't think this is something that happens often in many ways we've talked about. I think it is automatic. I'd imagine this happening all the time. I mean if it happened to us. I'm sure it's happening all over the place that you just don't hear about it because most people don't have podcast that years later the randomly telling the story sure you know but I think were going just different uh-huh directions with this one I'm saying I wonder how much this happens in terms of AAA Games. That's what I'm

"We are well positioned to lead the charge for a new model for gaming. I thought this was interesting because the platform is built on blockchain technology and i was telling him run before or the show. I still don't quite know blockchain. Technology is but it is like the new hotness in the world of video game development. There's been a ton of panels on a g._t. And there were some people talking about it at dice and i think that it's just one of these new technologies that is really invigorating a lot of innovation in the space of video games and platform business ask and so. I'm really interested to learn more about this. I'm hoping to meet up with with david eddings at pax. I was gonna try to call him live this morning because he he put out a video which i thought was really hilarious where he is reprising well. I shouldn't say that he's imitating a well-known robot from the borderlands franchise but it's a different name amy. Let's see here what they called him. Oh yeah it's a w three l zero. We all barrow because it's a <hes>. It's a wheelbarrow here. Let me let me see if i can get this to you. Bear it so we can pull it up so you can see exactly what i'm talking about. I've got the slack open to kind of funny control kind of funny control. Do i have that. Is that the acids channel no. I mean you can send it to the channel if you're in that okay. I don't think i'm in on the control because you know i'm just a part timer. They don't give me full slack access to help control is like a it's like a profile like you or me or whatever so you just go to plus direct messages and then you can type that in and i don't see it <hes> okay. Did you get it. I get it okay. Oh yeah yeah well you go back to the beginning of the video. You may have to take it off mute on mute there. We go traveler sounds like claptrap to me. That's a very close to a lawsuit playing with fire but <hes> that's what eddings does best so. He's going to be at pax talking about this and so i'm going to get him to explain to me what the heck blockchain is. I've had people try to explain it to me as well and i like it when you're working in news pretty much every thirty mel says the word blockchain and the headline and like i don't what does this mean really because i'm not much. What's that much of a technology person. Okay people tried to tell me like okay well. It makes this easier or we can do this without having to actually like manually go in and take curve like okay. I kind of understand that part. At least i don't understand how it works but i understand that it's cloud something something well we'll find out but they did just they're just just got back to me over email and gave me a little bit more information in their message.

"Every news story days hey overwatch is coming to switch and also because uh-huh uh-huh alone as a port might maybe not the most interesting story like it's cool but we're also looking at a world where the witcher three is coming out in on switch in two months then that is just two months away while extremely weird the number of things that are being able to be put on the switch so if i were watched does get announced announced like it's it's interesting but if it was announced alongside ace mattiello's character that's way more of a news story. I definitely agree with you there. What do you think about this business. Contender direct on the horizon so the past two years there have been wrecks on september twelfth and thirteenth. I would be shocked if they did not follow that up again. Good it's it's the beginning of our it's close to the end of this quarter and also the switch light comes out in september as well so they want to really push them. I believe so yeah it's place of timber. I believe it's the same day as link's awakening. Yes it is the twentieth so you really wanna hit all possible notes and get people to rush preorder these things or by the day of so if you wanted if you wanted like really hit up on software maybe an overwatch announcement saying all these things are here or like a bunch of other stuff with nintendo direct correct. It would be great. That'd be smart marketing move. I think you're you're making sense iran so we'll definitely keep an eye on it and see if if <hes> your prediction is correct. Let's look at the counter really quickly and see what day of the week that would be so the september eleventh is a wednesday my final day kinda funny gains daily in september twelfth thursday so you think it would maybe be tuesday the tenth they've been. They've had to wrecks on thursdays before so shocked yeah <hes> especially especially because that's also the shop update day so they're going to drop something randomly. That'd be a good day to do it. <hes> yeah get everyone to open up their switch by album things or preorder or hey we still got more of those reopened that voucher program again who knows marketing one. Oh one almond all right. Let's move to our final story in the roper report <hes>. This doesn't have a lot of traction yet but i'm bringing it up because two of my friends are involved and i thought it was an interesting thing that's coming down. The pipeline hype line new challenger to steam in the epic game store arrived soon with turbo play and the power of blockchain technology in crypto currencies so they sent me a press release this morning. If you're like what's turbo play. I haven't heard of it. It's because the platform hasn't launched yet. They've been in the news a couple of times of the last few years talking about their rangeuil investors and a seed funding round. They've gotten but what i think is interesting about. This is the way they're <hes> the way that they're kind of of building their digital marketplace so let me read from the press release turbo play an upstart video games marketplace's firing up their marketing team and everyone else along the way with the addition of one of gaming's most well known personality david eddings.

"I was not really having much fun with her as i wanted to have so i think i'm still going to main amara but flack was a strong contender as my back volt hunter but i know br you really enjoyed your time with zane eliot. Who is the operative. Who's got the gadget. Oh yeah absolutely well. The gun. Play feels grade eight the gums look. I was talking about it on games. Cast about how they're really just is not a bad gun that i've come across and the art it on the guns is just beautiful and i just can't get over how good this game looks and the polish feels great and the quality of life changes are nice and the map we go into the map. It's like a three d map now so you can see levels because that was a big thing and borderlands before is it was sometimes sometimes hard to see where the markers were if there was multilevel terrain and now it's like a three d map where you can turn it around and see oh. I have to go up a couple levels to get to where you're the marker is man wolfenstein would have benefited from this seriously yup they would have benefited from a math in general but yeah would have been real nice and they announced this week. That ice tea is joining the voice cast as the voice of balic's was a new character that i got to meet my playthrough and he was phenomenal. Yeah fun character and i can't if you guys to meet him. I'm not going to say too much about him. Even though if you want there's plenty of information out there if you want to learn about bakes icees role. There's no shortage of footage because they didn't give us any upload restrictions. I'm still trying to decide if i want to upload all this footage outage that captured but i know that when it comes to story stuff in new characters sometimes people are like i don't want to know. I don't wanna know <hes> so. I'm not going to say much more about it here but except that you're gonna love him. He's great. He was fantastic obviously. He's he's a great actor so he's he's a nice addition. You draw a good fit yeah. He's he's been a game for a long time. He does look like talks about playing games and i think it was a good move by two k to get someone unlike him onboard especially in the wake of all the controversy around the voices of reese claptrap which are not good good great. I mean claptrap. I will say the actor playing clash. Now is absolutely fulfilling the role roll my problem is that i have an emotional attachment to old claptrap in a large part because david eddings is a friend of mine and he's fantastic asking that role but also because like when you get used to hearing a character's voice over hundreds of hours of gameplay it's just a rough adjustment hearing hiring somebody take up that mantle and tried to do it on their own and they very clearly are different readings. I mean but it's not the new actor isn't bad. The good news is that there's lots of other her amazing things to be excited about borland's three including your loot stream..

"Oh, yeah. And that was that. I don't know if he would know he just is a former employee, and so then the back and forth over like, why'd wasn't David Eddings reprising his role as claptrap in borderlands three became part of it. And he kind of said like, oh, well, you know, when I was impli just did it for no additional money and this time since I don't work there anymore. I was like, yeah. I mean, I would want to get some money for this. And then offer was like not right, which then the timing the back and forth. Okay. Here's what he responded to someone who has no for the first time, I insisted on getting paid for my performance. And all of a sudden they couldn't afford me. Now, I'm not telling them how to run their business. But maybe next time they put the twelve million dollar payment from two k in the gearbox make out instead just saying he's claptrap clamps class back. And yeah. And then. So again, none of these wrecks necessarily respond to each other. It's just it's like people going. Hey, did you see what this guy said? And then rainy picture saying Mr. Eddings was paid very handsomely during his employment after his employment. He was made a relatively generous offer to reprise the role. Unfortunately, he turned that opportunity down. And then since in the time since then. It went from relatively generous offer to him saying it was offered was two times the scale. And all that sort of stuff, you know, just just like, increasingly nasty stuff back and forth. David adding sang, it's not fair to blame the employee of the action of one person be kind. They're the ones forced to cringe in Barrett. Every time the boss shoots himself in the foot. Which I. I've talked to other former gearbox employee's that have. Had a similar. Similar vibes. When it comes to discussing the head of gearbox. Then David Eddings nineteen hours ago now on Twitter. Posted a big long. So a lot of this kind of tied into some labor stuff. Also because it was like, hey, wait a minute. You did the voice of this iconic character, you are not paid as voice actor this was job taken away from a union voice, actor all this other stuff. Meanwhile, they also announced some of the voice cast for borderlands three at includes people who are just gearbox employee's again. And so people like, wait a minute here. This seems uncall-. So I think I'm just going to read this. A couple toys this thread that sort of last night. Correct. Yeah. Yeah. This was. Yeah. Nineteen hours ago. Maybe it's just read this whole thing. This is a series of tweets from David Eddings, former gearbox employee former voice of claptrap, I was fine moving on after gearbox. But when my former boss starts mouthing off about various aspects of employment, including how highly compensated. I was and how generous he is. He quotes around that stuff. I feel obligated.

I fall and order gets because they mean it when they say, yeah, that's a month later to come on. It's toned up. It makes no sense that you can do that. And then dig your heels in and fight and fight and fight question yourself being like, I am sorry shouldn't set. It that way. Here's what I mean. Pro it would have been over note. We would not this would still be happening. Probably the claptrap part of it. But we wouldn't be like, oh, but he fix that. Immediately. And didn't go after any McNamara. Didn't go after game informer interim like what? And the problem with the inner circle that you're saying is that like, I don't know who the fuck. Randy's inner circle is. But it sounds like he pushes his inner circle away, you know, with this with David Eddings day and with other stories that we've heard it's like that's a nut solutions. I know this the Randy Pitchford situation in particular, really like personally. Others me. There's something about it. Just the way that he's been handling himself. And all this where it's just like it. It just makes me feel like it's making us all look so bad that I'm like you need to just fucking stop, dude. Are you worried about it like getting outside of a worry necessary? It's one of those. I don't. I don't worry about it making us all look bad. Because I think if anything it makes it has people like Christina who are like wait what the fuck is going on. And everyone else knows not how you handle the situation. Right. Like, this is not the right way to do this. And you would hope that again as this continues to evolve again, I'm sure what is going to happen today. What is going to happen today? What is Randy knocking to say anything is? He gonna go is gonna go say something nuts. I don't you know, where we're gonna go. You would hope this entire situation somebody watches from the outside whether they're developer somebody else or whatever there's like this is not how we handle ourselves and twenty and again, it's it's it's distracting from a game that I can't wait for now a development team that came out. And it was like, this is awesome. And that's the same thing. David ending said on Twitter, right where he responded, it's not his pin tweak somebody four fall out or whatever said, quote tweeted, the whole threat and was like gearboxes a shitty developer shitty. Business practices said I I hate hate that. that That's thing. David responded. Now, man gearboxes home amazingly talented game developers. It's not fair to blame the employee's for the actions of one person be kind. They're the ones forced to cringe in Barrett. Every time they're they're the boss shoots himself in the foot. And that's that's it. Like, that's what I'm saying. Here is like the what I say makes us all look bad. It goes back to what are saying on the show a couple of weeks ago about how the hell does gamers have such a bad rap. How is being a gamer associated with such horrible fucking vile things? Yeah. What it's like, it should just be about people that like video games. That's a purely positive thing yet somehow it is almost unanimously put with o negative bullshit and being an asshole. And I just hate that. I feel like it's things like this from people so high up that are so influential in what it means to run a video game company be a part of this industry, and it reflects that side not the other side.

"Interfere with that. And I don't think it will Burton. I talked about the entire episode of what's good last week was all about borderlands three and you can watch Britain is livestream game play on YouTube dot com slash what's good games. If you wanna see a ninety minutes of gameplay, we have forty five minutes of Zane, forty five minutes Mara. But listen, here's a thing talent gets into negotiations with the people who are holding the purse-strings sometimes those negotiations. Go great. Sometimes they go very poorly. I think you, and I know that just as much as anybody else out there, we've had to do these kinds of negotiations by scenes for our entire careers know. And so it's unfortunate that they weren't able to reach an agreement. It's even more unfortunate that it had to be aired so publicly they couldn't reach an amicable agreement and especially since David Eddings did a fantastic job. And again talking about disclosures said before that I'm friends Randy Pitchford, and I'm going to say, I'm also friends with David needs. And it's disappointing to see that you know, they were not able to find a. Working agreement to get him back in the game. Because he's a fantastic claptrap klepto has a little bit of a different vibe immortalized three than he does previously because each voice actor it's going to bring their own flair. There's no way I think for it to be an identical carbon copy, nor would you want it to be. If you're going to take your character, do it. But it is interesting that I heard the rumors of this beforehand when I watched it, I was listening, and I am I granted I hadn't played played recently. But I hadn't done a side by side comparison. I didn't notice it right because claptrap voices. So I assume tweaked in terms of what they're doing to make it sound more, computer. The real interesting thread here when we talk about Eddings when we talk about the lawsuit with the lawyer before and the the flash drive, and all that stuff is that you see a business like your box. That was I assume run by or not run by rainy. But it's people who are close together as friends, and then what happens when that explodes out in business gets in the way of and becomes part of that. Right. Where it is like in the same way when the lawyer came out, right? And it was like, well, there's all these different things. I think you're reindeer gearbox. I forget came out. And was like this motherfucker is using words very specifically to make it look like this because he knows how to get around. And he knows how to get under our skin, right? This evening. Eddings here. Right. Where it is. Like this whole thing of like, they should've put the twelve million payment from K in the Bank account. Instead just saying that you know what? I mean, it's not even jab exactly it's like all their dirty laundry being aired in public, and it's like, oh my God. For everyone involved cringe. I'm sorry is happening to everyone. I don't know who's right or wrong. Maybe there isn't anybody who's right or wrong. But it's just like fac like it's so weird to see. High school personal politics drama right blown up into the scale of like now, it's a video game new story across and that was the other thing I thought of was going through this today is I'm reading it. And I was one of those debating of like does this fall into the purview of kind of funny games? Daily isn't news, whatever. And I think one thing that pushed our line for me to get it on the show was the fact that we haven't talked about claptrap being replaced yet on this show. It's I wanted to get in there. And also, then it was also the thing. Like, I also wanted to look weird that we didn't talk about it when we did the borderlands event a second ago, right? Like, I don't want people think we're doing that. But then it also.

Adding said he insisted that he'd be paid unlike in previous games where he reportedly recorded lines for no extra revenue. Remember for extra money any? That's you could use a nickel word. You don't use a twenty five cent work. For the first time I insisted on getting paid for my performance. And all of a sudden they couldn't afford me. Adding said he added now, I'm not telling now not telling them how to run their business. But maybe next time they should put the twelve million dollar payment from two k in the gearbox Bank account. Instead, just saying dot dot that willingness presumably in reference to the twelve million dollars that Pitchford Randy Fisher intro is allegedly this alleged in a lawsuit to have received as a secret bonus than what they himself instead of the studio for its part gearbox said the claim has no basis in reality or law regarding the claptrap controversy Pitchford himself commented on Twitter, he said, adding is bitter bitter and disgruntled about his departure from gearbox Pitchford settings was terminated.

"Young adult fiction is booming industry. The John has produced hits like the hunger games the divergent series as well as Joan greens. The Fulton are stars. And the N G Thomas book, the hate you give one thing that all of these books have in common is that they tackle big issues between their covers between dystopia futures where people are forced into violent circumstances and tales of teens facing uncertain futures because of cancer or police brutality. Why has become John redefined defined by hardship and lack of control of young people? The reality of the world for them. I think that as young adults you grow up in a world where you actually have very little control of your life. Let's Marie Lou author of the war cross to Allah g books titled war cross and wildcard about like in high school. It's very regimented. Ministicks your classes, you have no control over your home. Art, he had very little control over all the things that you're growing up changing and everything is changing as well. And a lot of young adults, especially in disdain age up. You know, online any real life the real violence that happens in the world around them. And I think it does a disservice to young people to the ten that doesn't exist. So I think it's important in adult fiction to address those thing in a thoughtful and mature way for young people to identify with to say, hey, I see you. I understand the hardship thing in the world challenges that you go into as you up to become a cold and how to stay stuck lose war. Cross books are more in that science fiction futuristic vein of why fiction her books. Tell the story of a young hacker who lives in a society obsessed with the game called war cross. She's hired to help uncover a security flaw in the game. And is thrown into the midst of a world of corruption. Ingred loose says she has always been attracted to science fiction and fantasy worlds for the way. They allow you to navigate a heightened reality. I love fantasy and science issues kid my first benefits. Did I ever read was actually Brian Jake red wall series in middle school? And I remember just being here. And ever since. Then I've read almost exclusively fiction. Go I always knew I was going to write in those John rose what I feel very comfortable in. And I like being able to explore into the better society through the lens of science fiction and in war crosses case in the book technology, that's just taking the world ice storm. A gave me a chance to explore some of my own thoughts and questions about how technology is moving forward in our society, and how quickly it's happening is Jonah that really appealed to me, though, your idea of why may be that. It's all distributors melodrama loose says she actually appreciates how John reflect some of those expectations on their head and can make an uplifting story out of it is still being premise. It's a very optimistic adequate. Even though a lot of our stories have dark and violence and just as the real world has it also takes young people at the forefront of changing their societies for the better and being that fielder lining in a relatively dark world. Which is what our reality new also says that she hopes her books can be enjoyed by readers of all ages because actually that was who they were written for actually stood out to life for a young adult category. Because I didn't really know that it was the thing when I first started hitching books. I started writing for young people mostly because in fantasy and science when I was growing up reading them a lot of the main characters are young. So if you go back and kind of look at the old series like Harry Brooks, and David Eddings work, and that sort of thing they all kind of start young. People in their teens. Was trained on and later, you know, what I pitched my first series legend agents, she was the one who told me that it was young adult and at that point. That's when I discovered the entire category, and I've loved it ever since Ellen Hopkins is another young adult author, but her books are that other prominent style of Waie, which is realistic stories about young people facing real life adversity. Her books have been both taught in schools and Bandon schools because she isn't afraid to confront hut, but n- issues like drug addiction and teen pregnancy. She's most well known for her book crank, but has written seventeen books in total. Her latest is called people killed people and to tackle the highly polarizing topic of gun violence in America, pumpkin says she's enjoyed watching the entire Waie category. Grow over the past fifteen years since your career took off. There was no real. It was considering more like glutton alley would call middle grade, so free younger kids, and then they kind of went three to adult literature after that. But we've created a space for young adult readers teams older teams that where they can experience the stuff actually having to experience. It would they can learn about ways to get out of these situations ways to use their voices. So I think it's become a really important space for young people who do experience these things every single day. I know a lot of adults don't like to think that maybe their teams are going through these things, but they are, you know, they're in every school there in the back seat of cars there on school bus. The kids. This is what they deal with daily. Not only has Hopkins dedicated her career to writing for young people, but she spent much of her life raising them to which she says has given her a real sense of what our children have been going through for the past few decades. Third generation of kids. So like adult we don't give a twenty one year old, and I am raising grandchildren. We've had them for five years. So fulltime watching these kids lives change in that my oldest kids. There was never ever the worry that someone would go into their school with gun. It was not even considered with the twenty one year old. It was just starting to become kind of in the news at the time. And now, these are children are dealing with, you know, lockdown drills, and you know, where they're gonna hide if gun comes on on their campuses and stuff. So I think this conversation is vital that we find ways to at least mitigate as much as possible not just school shootings, but mass shootings gun violence. Overall. Hopkins says part of what leads young people to flock to these books is that stories can provide them a place to practice reacting to these larger issues and work through what their exact beliefs are the fictional spaces. Often the safer space to explore not just gun violence. But a lot of these issues that are kids are dealing with every single day and to create characters can be Representative without having to be looked at person in the I I think it is a more comfortable place jumping off point for the conversation. And I hope that's what happens with this. I hope people talk about the character and think about because each of these characters there's six the little have a reason to maybe pick up a gun and these things that affect all of us revenge. Jealousy. Anger hate thoughts of suicide these things that lots of experience so find in these characters and to be able to like go. It's not me. It's not you. It's them, but we can talk. They're both Lou and Upton say that young adult fiction allows young people away in on considering big topics and figuring out what decisions they wanna make in their lives. You can't hide the truth from our kids. Our committee our kids. Deserve to be. I like to call it being armed with knowledge. The more, you know, the safer you're going to be because you're going to realize that there are outcomes to choices that you're gonna be able to be for Warren with like, okay? That's a problem. I can see maybe that kid over there. Need some help? I hope that young people said away from books with them sense of optimism and control an awareness of the world around them. Again, I feel like young people especially based on how I felt when I was growing up. I felt like I had very little control in their life and one of the beautiful things about young adult is that it shows that young people have a lot of agency and a lot of power, and it's been really heartening to see young people in the real world making huge waves making you're making change on their own and taking action on issues that are most adults would be afraid to tackle Marie lose war.

"This thinking well who's right? Who's telling the truth? I encourage you. If you're curious to read the court filings to read Randi's statement, I know a lot of people pointed to David Eddings tweet, David Eddings being the former voice of claptrap, and formerly of gearbox publishing. He worked gearbox for quite some time. He had tweeted after everything broke on Friday. Yes, it's true. And so people kind of up in arms, but I think it's worth noting that he put a second tweet. That's. Gosh, I was just looking at this. He put out a second tweet that said. Liar. Check conman. Check perv. No idea I'm glad Beasely dire. But but the clarification, I think is important, right? Yeah. It's it's tricky because you know, the Pitchford and a lot of people don't know them, right? And right to obviously me is someone who trust knows you very personally interest your judgment of character. When you say, you can't imagine the pitch for doing this and inclined to believe you. But the people out there who don't know them or maybe they don't know you as well as maybe Sam, I do it is hard because someone who's worked in sexual assault unit. When I used to work for department of corrections. You see that a lot you see people who live normal day-to-day lives. But then they run the second life that no one ever saw any this coming weather shall pornography, their serial rapist. It's just the you don't know. And I think you here. That a lot on the news. What you see in your daily media's? No, we never knew he was doing this or she was doing this. And they're in their free time, or whatever, you whatever you wanna call it. And this is the kind of allegation that just doesn't leave a person, you know, if he even if he's proven innocent, and this is all proven just to be someone with an ax to grind it's not going to leave him behind. People are always going to wonder, and this is something that's gonna follow him the rest of his career. And it's just so unfortunate all of this is just so sad. And you don't know what to believe, I guess. Exactly. Right. Brit. We're not here to say if it's true or if it's not true. We're not here to judge. Whether what he did is within his rights or without not in his right because we don't know what his agreement with gearbox into K is we don't know if that if he received this alleged bonus if it was actually part of his agreement or not the way that it was paid out to him. And or if it was supposed to go somewhere. Else? Right. We don't know what the video looked like that he had on the USB stick, right? I just wanted to make sure that we talked about it. Because I think the big takeaway here is the internet. Lynch mob is a dangerous thing and throwing out allegations and making snap judgments is what destroys people's lives. And I would hope that you of their listening would take some time to process all the information and go what matters. And what doesn't does any of this matter to me in my life or does. None of it matter to me my life. You know what I mean? And I hope the allegations all turn out to be false. I really do because it would be a huge bomber. If any part of them turned out to be true. I really hope not. But yeah, I guess we'll have to wait and see. Oh, right. Happier. News. In happier news. Indeed..

And there's another quote here before I know it, I think the entire office looked at it. And there was one piece of content on here and never occurred. Any? And it never occurred to any of them that the reason why there was just that single porno was because of the magic trick. Not because of not a single one of them, not a single one of them thought that this porn was magic. My whole thing is magic why didn't they know?

She's guys find anything weird on my laptop. I just wanna go and get it out of the way this. I'm studying physics, and it's all I'm really interested in the physics of what's happening and objects in motion stay in motion. Einstein said that. Yeah. And then on Twitter Pitchford this categorized this as a shakedown that that that calendars attempting to to shake the company down. There was a lot of Twitter stuff around this David Eddings was formerly at gearbox just posted something saying like, Yep. It's true. And then backpedaled on that a little bit and said, actually, I think the li- says liar checkmark, conman checkmark Perv, no idea, he's he's he's saying that the money's stuff, which is honestly, that's that's been swirling around gearbox since the court in these days that have kind of come out in the wake of it. Right. Like some of that's in there. The underage porn stuff is an allegation in the countersuit from calendar. So it's become part of this whole mess. Right. And that stuff whether it's the underage porn was on the USB stick that seems to be the implication at the very least the I think it would be a much bigger deal..
