Platformer team in the remake teams so poorly in recent times kind of putting everything into the college duty development teams or other other aspects whether it's over watcher etc so i struggle to think of what team would be working on a new crash game and if they are I don't think that it's going to be crash five.

Timothy your expert at crash bandicoot in all things why forming like they. They translated to mario games to three in a literal way where maiyo sixty four with a completely different route invaded. Big sandbox collected thawed adventure. Kind of way more open experience whereas crashed was one hundred percent based on the platforming obstacles and dodging enemies and timed jumps.

And i'm sure it'll be gone within two minutes because of all the shenanigans. We're just gonna talk about hair for the next fifty minutes. Actually what we're talk about both hours and the for many aliens you mean ration griffin and that's my segue a click meet exactly. That's how we do it around these parts avenue. Of course we're all going to be playing a we're going to be talking about rationing clank. Which we've all played we all as far as i'm aware have rolled credits on it and we'll be diving into the game. Play the story The visuals the audio the accessibility. All of what. We've gotten to play of course while keeping spoiler free for the later bits of the game so you can all injury at don't want hear anything. Turn this off and listen after you've played but we hope you'll stick around and listen. I did of course to start off by mentioning. I reviewed rushing friday and you can check out my full review on idea in written form as well as video on there and youtube which was edited by mark medina. Who's right here with us. Go check out that video. It is a phenomenally edited edited video review marketed. An awesome job. So thank you for putting together but yeah definitely recommend you check that out but just to give a quick overview in case wondering i ended up giving it a nine. I really loved it. I've been a fan of russian clank since the original games. Play the original trilogy back on. Ps tune of kind of been with it. Since then i thought this one is probably the best playing of the whole franchise. I think it's one of the best playing sorta action platformer that played in some time. I think the the arsenal of weapons is a really really great. Load out for the series. There's definitely some of my favorites. That aren't there but there's a lot of like new favorites for me as well but i think the big things as aps five dedicated five exclusive. It is ridiculously pretty game. Like this is definitely the prettiest. Ps five game. Probably one of the prettiest games. I've ever played in general and the but it's backed by a pretty meaningful story. I think the game does a really great job of getting to some surprisingly emotional places. It's still really really funny. Like if you're someone who loves the humor ratchet and clank. I think it's still there. And i think it's still very funny. Approachable for all ages. Funny but i think the the story that they set up especially with ratchet and clank sort of throw line from from where this picks up after into the nexus. But even if you don't know about that. I think it's still introduces everything. Really well and the introduction of rivet and some other characters i think is just so all done i think jennifer hale as rivet is phenomenal. And i can't imagine this franchise without her like. I think it would be very strange to start adding too many names to these. Titles and calling it ratchet and clank in written three other people's names but like to me rivet as is as integral now to this franchise has ratchet and clank. And i hope she's around for some time because i really really enjoyed the character. Work there but Yeah that's sort of a brief ish. Ub check out my full review on jan. but i want to hear from all of you Especially because i wrote thousands of words about it so that people can read all that. I want to hear from all of you about sort of the game in general your brief thoughts and so before we get into specifics of things simonov. I'll start with you. What sort of your general thoughts on ripped apart. I would have given a three. Yeah no it's it's very.

"And i about the characters i think about the real life victims of the story i think about the real life survivors of the story. It really had a very strong impact on me and humanized that horror that real life horror in a way that no other true crime has and that's really like when i when i've listened to true crime in the car with you since then i think of that book every time. I think that's really really cool. That like you said. You've absorbed through osmosis but it's not really something you were superficially ever into But i think a lot of us with true crime is at some point. There's a story or certain stories. They all have meaning. But there's these few standouts that really get to you and they get your heart and that's when you start to really love true crime asandra because you want to hear people's stories you want justice you want truth to be told At least i think that's why me and a lot of people are into true. Crime rates for those reasons is just like you. You understand that these were real people involved in this and she did a really good job of blending fact with fiction. So yeah if you're if you're into if you're into true crime even a little bit if you just if you have someone in your life who's giving it to you osmosis. I really recommend that. You read that book by jennifer grazer dornbush. Yes thank you. Jennifer also lovely person that we were honored to have on this show re interview. Yeah so cool. Very excited to follow her career even more okay. So i've got another one for you. Ready let's hit. I've got two more on my list. I have two more and my honorable mention. What should you do your mentioned now. I want to do my mentioned second to last. My gosh. you're so you're being so extra. He's being so extra people. I think you know what it is to and you.

It's so good another incredible individual that we got to have on our show this year and a stunning cover up just striking me. Every time i go through our lists like oh that cover. This is a beautiful well-crafted story and the story. Rachel herself the genre. She's writing in is all just very very poignant and meaningful for me. She's a woman in horror. She loves her. She knows for sure what she's talking about. She knows what she's writing about. This book is contemporary. This book is now. This book is about women and friendships and also horror and somebody that knows what's up and live in that world and it's like it's so refreshing and that's not to say that i haven't read other women that are like this in short story or long form because we've had plenty of both but i think of hers almost like this figure had this like emblematic ship's mast like you know helping lead the way into Female female horror in two thousand twenty and beyond you know like smart funny witty Creepy compelling scary but scary in so many different ways gosh. I really can't recommend this book enough if you somehow. This fell off your radar. Please please pickup the return by rachel harrison. Our love the way that that female friendship is portrayed in the novel way complicated in both directions. Yeah yeah she just really hits the nail on the head surely knows what what's up. I'm not gonna wait for my for my honorable mention. Oh no no okay. Especially because i know i- sandra knows what this is c. Now idea you do okay. So the reason. This is an honorable mention..

"Probably the hardest advice and just sit down and do it. Carve out time in your day your week.

Commitment whatever's comfortable for you but that's the only way it happens I ran from my calling for a good twelve years. Like i knew i was supposed to be a writer.

"In our in our right right right exactly. And then there's some things that like because they've been like we've seen him on tv so many times we think they're true really. Not drill actually doesn't happen you've been trained to think it does with they call it the csi effect even like in core cases. There's like the go well. Why don't you do this man. Like this is exactly doesn't quite work that way. And what was your writing process like when you get an idea and you start deal you plant them out alive or you start to write them with your writing process like yeah i am strong plotter and that's because when i started writing i actually trained in screenwriting so i started i trained in screenwriting. Starting in two thousand two and screenwriting is very structure heavy. Because it's i almost it's almost like poetry you have to be so structured but within that form there's so much Freedom as well. So i love being very structured. I like really needs to know where i'm going. I spend a lotta time. Mapping things out and then once i have it all mapped out. It's almost like i can just relax like oh good. I know where i'm going. And then i just sit down and then i write and of course things change in morphine in move around. But i like to know where i'm going. Especially when you're writing mystery because or thriller because you you have to have those logical points that get you. Will this happen in there for that clue happened in. That clue led to that and that you do both at the same time. You're writing for screen screenplays or and then the books at the same time would like to tackle the different projects of time. Where you know i always have about four four or five projects. Spinning some are screenplays in summer novels. And just watch the video on youtube Behi behind the scenes or behind the curtains of alba screenwriting though until they had the writing room guys of of breaking bad and like you said it was an how everything is just like the whole thing can cards. And oh man. That's cool because especially when you're writing tv you know. You're mapping out what tanner probably ten episodes. And so it's all like each board is an episode. And you have to really know where you're going because when what you're doing an episode to might affect episode eight and you go back and reshoot that next production doesn't doesn't frowns upon that so and so. Have you ever say you wrote the true crime book to you. The enjoy writing about Non fiction or have you ever thought about writing true crime stories because of your background. I love true crime. And i love actually spoiler or big announcement or whatever. I'm actually working on a project right now. that's true. Crime and is non-fiction. It's a book that We're getting ready to pitch based on a very famous serial killer. Say oh cool yeah. I'm guilty of being fascinated with the old days. When before the internet access checkbooks have in the library and in remember. My girlfriend at the time was very worried. But she's my wife now so she did figure out too bad. I guess start with stuck with u books sticking out from the library but just a fascinating Like you say it's the how can a human do that to other human stuff mind boggling. It's boggling. And i think that's why we're fascinated because those of us who aren't psychopaths or how does that mind work. And so. I was like to ask. I guess to them on the writing tools to use like word or use a different software program to write a book needed to the screenplays. Or what are your tool. Okay so i use a plain old fashioned notebook. I'm just like i coming up with ideas and kind of plotting structure. But yeah then i just use word and then For screenwriting when. I'm finally ready to go to script. I go to final draft simple. Yes pretty sinful. And i'm not really a note card person i tried and i don't know it got too much sink and so i was gonna do now. Has the pandemic change your your writing process at all i'm imagine has change. Everyone's lives much. This year i would say ninety. Eight percent of it is the same. The two percent of it is is so miss going to coffee shops writing. I miss it. I miss just going out or just going to a coffee shop. I'm that classic. I want writer in a coffee shop. I there's certain yeah can be very conducive to writing. I've really missed that. But otherwise my my routine is pretty much the same. I was always writing from home. So like i'm like welcome to my world. Everybody like my wife now has to work from home. You know i've been doing. We've been waiting for a long time exactly. I know my husband's working from home shoe. And he's like this is kinda weird like i. don't see a people unlike. yeah. I know it's great to become an interview for those senior extrovert types there. It's a struggle for birds. Yeah it'd be curious result over like if there was any way to possibly study like how many extroverts got covert versus. How many introverts like did they actually push the women and go out more like. That's not cool. Nineteen twenty twenty one happen. I can So what are you working on. Next is a hole in the woods. Is it a standalone. I a lot of places in the air. Yeah yeah no it is. I've always kind of pictured it as a standalone So more on the corner series going to keep working on the corners daughter series and then this is true crime. I'm working on a short story for an anthology which is called murdering music Based off of one of the eagles albums so they picked by nine of us authors. Doing one of those They're all like mystery. Mystery authors so Yeah there's a lot of other stuff spinning and we'll just see where it goes. You know just pitching and developing and see where it lands base for sprang riders. Listen to this podcast. Close it out with that question. I'm sure they heard million times but honestly like you really just have to do it. I mean you just have to sit down and do it if you wanna rice. I hear so many times. People's own right the stricter. I had this idea for this booker. This screenplay whatever in The simplest advice but.

"Years. From now we'll be unraveling host gordon up right now. So yes where. Where are you in san francisco. Oh got yeah in l. a. too. It's all getting bored us exactly. But what what so you when you create a story you get to have those logical points. So i had to figure out what we're the logical points of of her story. Which again. I totally fictionalized the the logical points of the actual case. But then you want. The actual story was Resolved an and discovered and delved into by five cold case. Detectives worked on it for two years straight while. That's amazing great resources to have an case. But when you're writing in store you don't get to have five protagonists. So i had to figure figure out to okay. The protagonist tour we following through this case so that was some of a challenge to figure out. What does she know who is she. Why this. why is this case. Important to her and so the book is a hole in the woods and it's out now so now listeners go go go pick it up. Go pick up copy up so with that story about i know. It's based on shannon's Case bill that gets us about the woods. Yeah sure quickly. I'll say it is told in multiple points of view. I like russia iran so it it but the main point of view is our cold case. Detective riley saint james and she's up early thirties. Really snappy young woman. Who's been working and living in detroit. Her whole life and she gets assigned to this case which is in northern michigan. And so she. She is pulled out of her big city. Beat cop kind of life into this small town which she she never lived in town. So she's this real fish out of water and she has to uncover all of these Secrets and figure out. It's not so much a who done it. It's not structured that way. Because you you figure out you learn pretty much in the first couple chapters who did it. It's not a big surprise. get it. it's more that they are a threat in the community and now she has to figure out what how going to actually prove that they did it without getting myself killed in the process. I love the says. there's a crime thrillers. My favorite john read And so as fascinated to to find out that you worked this cold case foundation when you were releasing your book. And if he's telling me tell us a little bit about that and how that came about. Yeah so how came about is. I've been wanting for years to partner with nonprofit organization moves working somehow in law enforcement or or justice and Because i i think it's great that we write these fictional characters and all that but the real heroes are the people who are actually working in the field and so i knew that eventually slow on to find an organization i could support financially or how however i knew for sure i wanted to know support them financially as as a philanthropist. But i didn't know. I just want to know how that would would spring about so. I actually found them very randomly. And i started to research some like. Wow these these people are exactly like have my heart for what they're doing and it's so what i'm doing for them. Now is basically the woods. The the novel. I'm giving a portion of the sales of that book a donation to their organization in perpetuity. As long as the book is out there and making money so so a novel with a with a cause and then soon there they are as i started to partner with them they have a real heart for. Will they help people who have been victimized by crime and the cases have gone cold so you as a as a family member or as a law enforcement you can go to them and say this is my case. We haven't been able to solve it. Can i get some other is on it. And they have a huge team of professionals. Who will if they take on your case. They can bring that case to the professionals that those professionals will start to work on that case to offer another set of eyes or any resources that they can to help give it to solve it honestly so and it's all free. It's their nonprofit. In all of their services are free to law enforcement because there's such a lack of funding for for supporting cold cases and so that is really cool. I love that the second thing that they are starting to develop which i will be more a part of is they do a lot of victimization training which is basically how training people of all walks of life young middle old any profession. How do not become a victim of a violent crime. What to look for what to be aware of just bears They have a very interesting way that they look victimization and so we can start to look at ourselves that way and an awareness of more awareness of our surroundings and they have a lot more to it than. i'll go into here but they they. They're really their goal is to start training communities in victim prevention so. I'm going to be helping them do that. Yes a fantastic organization and you know from i like to watch the true crime shows and like the read. The fiction books and and the unit realize how. Many cases are unsolved. Actually dhaka's looked into the head. That's a lot of unsolved cases of their cases. Yeah so now of is was holding the woods. At first booker you've published other books yes I published books published a nonfiction book called forensic speak which is a guide for writers. Also make great coffee table book. Just if you're like a csi fan. It's basically the forensic science academy in a book. and then i have another series called the corner. The corner and secret remains those of the first student in in the book. It's the coroner's daughter. Serious those are more like traditional mystery novels so and going to be expanding that serious cool. Yeah it was silent website and you do a lot of speaking training for writers and there's a lot of writers that listen to this podcast. A chef go. Check your stuff more courses out there and stuff. How do you get into that field in the enjoy. Enjoy that come about young. I love it. We'll see okay before. I actually started really taking my writing seriously. I was a teacher and taught i. Gosh i taught middle school. I taught high school. I've taught college is still teach college here. And there i'll pick up a course here and there and teach so he. I've always been a teacher. And i don't know what when i when i wrote this forensic speak book than people just started kind of asking like hey can can you t just about. How do we make our forensics more authentic in our in our in our the way that we right. i don't know just kind of was a natural progression. I yeah that's great because especially nowadays you've readers. Sometimes they know so much so upset if you get things wrong so it's good to have people. There's others out there who help out riders out to try to get a little bit more realistic.

Probably till i was seven or eight. You know when you start to become a little more cognitively aware of what's going on but yeah my. My dad was the medical examiner for three counties in michigan and the office was in our home so literally. Everything came home And people came to the office. So you'd have you know police detectives or morticians or family members from from victims needing paperwork and it was It was just like any sort of medical examiner's office except it was in our house. Yeah the of course autopsies. He did at the hospital. There was a morgue that he actually had to actually kinda struggled to get that setup and the ladies auxiliary cause. The hospital had a ladies exhilarating. That would raise money for things at the hospital needed and one year they raised money for coolers for the morgue out. My dad sat up jeff crazy. So that's how it's really done in small plane so ladies are like you know making baked goods to to buy a cooler for the dead bodies. So so yeah that was i. Don't know yeah. I just i know when i was a teenager. It was kind of i felt. It was like really weird and embarrassing before. Csi made it really cool and you were you interested in reading mysteries and thrillers. When you're growing up did that come later. Or have you always been interested in the genera- you know yes like i kind of read everything so i. It wasn't like. I don't remember being drawn to one particular type of literature or anything. But i remember reading mysteries. Not in like abundance but I remember liking. And it's funny like i. I just kind of like my tagline. I just always gravitated toward stories. That maybe How do you say kind of got into the underbelly underbelly of humanity whether that was mystery or whatever and then but there was hope like he didn't just leave you there they you got in there to see like the inner workings of of kind of the darkness of humanity. But then you were lifted out at some. somehow. I don't know that's that's always interested me sort of exploring. Why are we evil. Why do we suffer. What because there is so much craziness in the world and suffering and i think anybody struggles with that at some point you know so. That's kinda what. I gravitated toward. Yes i was familiar with the shed insiders case. So what is being prepared for the for this interview and you book a hole in the woods. We'll get into that is based on that case in inside google that and holy land. That's terrifying what happened to that. Poorer of the poor girl How did you hit your radar. And when did you start thinking that maybe you could write a novel based on that. Yeah so i So shannon and i are while she were alive would be the same age so i didn't really know her even though i grew up in a very small community i didn't run in the same circles. Didn't go to the same high schools but then what but you know people involved and when she was killed of course my father was called in to do the autopsy and to examine so i know he went out to the scene and was involved in the case for many many years and spent many years trying to figure out. There were certain tool marks on her body that were left and it was very unusual. So i know he spent a long time trying to figure that out. So i don't have just been with this case from the very beginning and as a young girl young woman you know she was eighteen. I was eighteen when something like that. Happens to appear of yours in the small community which you've grown up thinking is safe. It really shakes you and it shakes the community so again. That's kind of one of these stories of like how does darkness touch community. And what is the community. Do and than twenty five years later. This cold case team comes in and they're able to dig in and uncover things and start talking to people and actually get down to the bottom of what happened in eventually making arrested with this case through trial and now two killers are in prison for the rest of their life. So it's got a it's got a hopeful ending to it which not all of them do. and so. that's really when. I always thought it would make an interesting story just because there were so many not just about the brutal death of this girl. It's about how it touched the community in how it ripples through the community for years in how it my sister says it kind of put a dark cloud over our community in certain ways. And it's more about that in the secrets that were kept and howled and why Which that's what i find fascinating so when the trial so what. I what. It was kind of like okay. There's but there's i need like stories. Need resolution right like we watch mystery stories we we re read them because we get a resolution. We get justice in this. One didn't have justice for a long time but then when when they finally took the trial was able to sit through the whole trial for three weeks and then my writer brain started going. And i was like. Oh my gosh. this is amazing. Like there's a resolution to this. There's a really hopeful beautiful resolution to this now. I have a story that the challenge to when you're writing a fictionalized. The story on real events Was that did you find that challenging. When he actually started prepping for it or did you just hit you. You're ready to go. No was challenging because there are so many puzzle pieces to this story. And you can't put everything in you know so you do have to kind of cherry. Pick 'cause you know when you're creating a story you has to make sense logically. Real life doesn't make sense. Male life is a mystery everyday case in point. We're at election day. This is a big mystery day. But i'm and we'll probably never understand today this.

"And and Sand I. Both had the same reaction I, know when this dog was introduced if you hurt this dog. Dot It. Yeah. We riot. Yeah and I think part of that I. I don't know how well we discussed the subject in the interview or if that's GonNa, make it into here but you know like I think part of it is just when you're reading about things that are terrible and that are hard such as someone's brutal rape and murder, you need wins you need. Someone so then it's like you know you get this adorable wonderful dog and it's like, okay I see what you could do here. Ma'am but I will ma'am you if you do this. Like no just let us have. Let us have some wins here and the other thing I don't know if this was intentional by Jennifer or not but you and I have very similar viewpoints when it comes to the idea of the guard dog and. She didn't go pick up a pit bull raewyn picked up a trained professional who she loved and cared for and loved and cared for her in return. Yeah. And just was highly trained had a very specific set of skills size. Liam. Niessen of dogs and in case you can tell how Scott was meaning that we love pit bulls we'd door them. We're saying like don't take something be. Like this killer and like, yeah no that would have been so gross and I probably would have called her out about that. Yeah, and then I guess the final thing that I wanNA talk about is and I should've asked Jennifer if she fly fishes. Yeah. Because Oh yeah, there's a whole. There's a whole fishing thing which as we know that's very relevant to our beloved Scott here and Because I do not meditate, I am not a meditative person I meditate, but the closest I get to meditating. Is Fishing and it is. It can be very calming even spiritual. Experience that just that quiet with the sound of the water in all of the nature around you and and I I appreciated that viewpoint that that way of of disconnecting and especially when he said, hey we don't talk about those things out here on the water. Yeah. That's not that's not what this place is for pumped here fist and. Like did. You, don't bring that drama here. That Air I'm GonNa have to imagine to like. So it like I. said I I do meditate and I'm a Yogi and it's like, I, imagine that sly fishing in those motions are a lot like yoga in a way you know there's kind of like the the repeat and like the pose the action and away to focus but also be. Late to clear your mind, but also be very in the moment you know yes hundred percent. Yeah. Says a muscle memory to it, but you always have to adjust for the conditions and yeah, and and so there is yes all of those things that you know maybe we should start like.

"In a way, this sounds bad but it's like, how do you make people care like how do you meet people care about real cases and real things that happen well, take it but make a fictionalized account and she does a lot about talking in this and in the afterward portions we talk in the interview about coal cases and you know that foundation and stuff, and so then it's like Oh okay and you know that somewhere someone's going to read this book who might not care that is now gonNa care about real people's crimes. And I think part of that is sometimes it can be so cold and so text book to read just like this is a true crime this is what happened but if you can flourish it and breathe life into it, it's a lot easier to have compassion and maybe you know fictionalized was a really important way to do that and as much as I. Love The fictionalization as as much as I love the characters. The thing that made this book for me more than anything else is keeping Nina alive. Yes. Yes. Being her consciousness alive, right. It was such a a refresh, refreshingly unique take on the true crime Jonrowe which we really appreciated. Thank you. Thank you ta down this interesting. Tell me what you mean by that. I love that where it's Kinda unique. Refreshing. Well, I think I think there's a tendency and I- as somebody who's like I said a life lawn true crime. You know follower that we get a little. Everything seems a little same Z. Sometimes and formulaic in how you tell the story and it's Nice. When you can look at it and you see this different perspective like I, Know Scott one of the things he's referring to is the perspective of Nina in this story very much. So and getting some humanization, and of course, in the real world, we have Bob's note at the end and you know just kind of this feeling of like this isn't just same old same old paint by numbers true crime it's humanizing varying. Thank you that means a lot to me. Thank you. and. I. Love that. kind of what she's going through is tied into her as. An indigenous person to I thought that was really really cool. Said this before.

She was part of my my coroner's world. That's cool. That's so cool. On a kind of a serious note to tell us about how this novel is in part a partnership with the Cold Case Foundation 'cause that's something I haven't come across a lot of crime fiction. Thank you. Thanks for asking that I'm really excited about this. So I. Found the cold-case on mission about a year ago but I had been looking for a long time for some sort of organization philanthropist. Har a love. Supporting amazing causes and donating my time my money whatever it can. And I want something that ties into my brand that that support forever you know that that is just part becomes a part of my brand what I'm doing and that proceeds of the things I'm working. In a person. Can support the real heroes because it's like writing about this I can kind of do it from the protection of my lovely office in I can create these crime worlds in these heroes. But the I've known a lot of the real heroes out there and they are the people who deserve the real praise and I want to find the right. Organization to support and I came across them very randomly or Providence. And I. Think. Wow. I started reading their website like, Whoa, these people are exactly who think I'm on a partner with so I I kind of them in. Succession of conversations with the Executive Directors for both former FBI profiler their former law enforcement, and now they've been running this in a profit organization twenty fourteen it's amazing. We call Nick The avengers of crime because they have. This is cool because they have like not only.

"I did too and I really liked who ends up kind of being her partner in the investigation Kinda share crimes. Yeah. Yeah is. Not, the not a perfect person, there's a lot of things about him. That is questionable but again, that that complicated relationship that they have and that the understanding that they're able to come to at certain points as far as they both care ultimately for different reasons is. You know I really enjoy I really enjoy a both of those characters. Yeah. She's kind of works with a couple of different law enforcement men in law enforcement, and you know this is a little bit of. A, little bit a book about her experience as a woman in this world and not saying that the things she went through men and men investigators don't go through but because she has a past this, not entirely dissimilar as it says, in the description she brings a different perspective to the investigation and there's something really really cool about cold cases deming justice that has beyond satisfying. So we'll talk more about that in the interview 'em spoiler section as well. So if you haven't gotten it from at least what I have been saying I, believe that this has a mass appeal I agree and especially more than anything else just knowing how much people love true. Crime, there's no reason that it shouldn't be mass-appeal reason I don't even have a whole I. Don't even have a whole like lecture to go into what I think is mass appeal I feel like we've already said it. Yeah. Because it just comes a thing and even if true crime is not your thing if you love if you love good stories, good characters and especially if you love thriller mysteries, which whole lot of people do yeah. This is still a fantastic book and you should check it out. Absolutely. Good good point there Scott, should we do it? Let's do it. Okay everybody.

Part to a full spoilers are in effect. If you haven't played the game, turn back now. Go play at go finish. It <hes> and then come back. Listen to this episode because we are going to dive. Into full spoiler territory with Lucille. O'Brien my have numbers with me, but more importantly I'm sorry, Lucy you don't have the highest honor this episode because we are joined by Neil Druckman and Halley, gross naughty dog for the last of US partout. Thank you both so much for being here and speaking with us today. They have. So the. House he twenty twenty being guys. Around. Warring Year of my life. Nothing. Much of note has happened this year. Definitely, so we'll. We'll try to find something to talk about this episode. I know Lucienne myself both have a ton that we want to ask you about and talk about with certain as much as I'd love to spend the next thirty minutes exclusively. Honoring the memory of Shimmer <hes>, there are some conversations I do. WanNa get into and I. WE WE ARE GONNA go into spoiler, so it's going to get there. I Will Get National Story Beats. I promise but I did want to talk about. The I think just jumping right into the structure of the story for me would be a really interesting place to start because Neil you and I spoke a little bit before the game came out, and we talked a bit about <hes> sort of how the structure of the game chain through development, and I was sort of curious. If you could both talk about <hes>, you know primarily, we have this sort of <hes> to factor story of the first half, really focusing on Elliot's journey, and then the second half focusing on Abbey's journey mostly in Seattle, but a little bit Jackson. How how did that story flow evolve? As you began to crack the story in figure out what you wanted to both explore? Whatever we had this kind of concept of constructive story about empathy by seeing two sides of a conflict. We had the two sides, but they are kind of distribution was different. Initially, this game was going to be open world with several different hubs. And the original was going to be playing abby. Some back story on her and her friends attack. They get rescued by Joel and Tommy and get. A. Help into Jackson and you spent a while in Jackson doing missions before some critical point, or you would reveal who she is as you would be struggling with this choice and kill Joel in annual take on his Elliott going on this journey to Seattle become the second hub of trying to find all these people in them. Eventually Confront Abby. But then as we were putting the story together, just filled with with the game, we were trying to make historic trying to tell with characters. We had our disposal. It didn't make sense for it to be open, moral and those. Aspects felt like there to conflict, and that's when really around the time like Halley, came on and kind of talk high level about the goals of what we're trying to do. And then it became more wide linear with some kind of more open areas <hes>, but where we try to get to the inciting incident much more quickly, which is the death of all, and then get on with the journey, and then some point midway through switch perspectives to show Abbey set store. I don't remember yeah funny. You brought back the open world thing I don't like all right. The first like three weeks of my time at naughty dog were just like. Can we make it open world and like trying to make that work, and then realizing how much it sort of. Screws with steaks and tension building, and so we. We moved off of that, but we really played with structure. I mean throughout the entire process, so yes, the game is currently divided between largely between I. Steph Ellie second-half Abbey, but. We entertained. Inter cutting. We entertained moving parts around the flashbacks of all move I mean. The living thing this game. Yeah! I can't imagine it being an open wells. I think you're right because it is. It's source structured in a way that every every <unk> resumes when you're in an open world game, you're constantly distracted by this. Because they distracted by this little fitch quest, catch, seven chickens or something, <hes> concert imagined that interrupting the story so ultimately pleased that you went in the direction that you winton. Is Is there any sort of part of me. That thinks Oh God okay. The loss of story could be told in an open world setting. Yes, and I think we. The design team actually came with a bunch of interesting. Aspects to play in the world in open world setting and adjust. All while those ideas were interesting and provocative, they didn't fit. The characters were playing. I don't WanNa get into specifics. Wherever use any of those ideas? But it just <unk> too many things one concert each other. We have to make some hard choices as far as what game game we WANNA make. As, you're saying that the beginning. It came down to this <hes> idea of seeing empathy and telling that from two different sides and obviously something to preserve stories spoilers in where the story would go, because it does really demand, be played, I feel. It started out as you know on a like a product facing way a story about revenge. Why did? Though at the end of the day, wanting to really get down to empathy in this world, be sort of the catalyst for your interest in the story. I think that was the emotional core of what we were after. In targeted through and trying to figure out what is conflict about it? It was really to show. How Simonis characters are and how much conflict and so much of this for myself, I think the team is inspired by real world events where you have sides of conflict, and you see how they often dehumanized the other side to justify atrocious behavior. and. We felt through game. Play the putting in the shoes of Elliot to get you to fee, also ask certain feelings and put you in the second half of the game and through empathy through. Seeing the consequences, not just what you've done, but like what you've taken away. From his people get you to reflect on it. And that was kind of like what we were always after. I cannot track of of of your question. I just curious sort of of the. Sort of. Subverting that expectation, because so many of us went in expecting a revenge story, but I do things that I've taken away the most that empathy and that love and that care. That's the thing which is like maybe to a fault. We tried so hard to protect the experience players experience. We've done with the first game. Right within the last one never revealed why you're transporting Elliot from one coast to another, and ultimately the game is about the unconditional love. A parent feels for their child, and the sacrifice did. Megan is a feel to talk about that head on who will be taken away with experiences so for here? The say a here's an experience about empathy. You would play the first half. and You keep waiting for the shoe to drop. Your House is going to reflect back so instead. We presented something much simpler and then let you see how complex it is when

I think you're right because it is. It's source structured in a way that every every resumes when you're in an open world game, you're constantly distracted by this. Because they distracted by this little fitch quest, catch, seven chickens or something, concert imagined that interrupting the story so ultimately pleased that you went in the direction that you winton. Is Is there any sort of part of me. That thinks Oh God okay. The loss of story could be told in an open world setting. Yes, and I think we. The design team actually came with a bunch of interesting. Aspects to play in the world in open world setting and adjust. All while those ideas were interesting and provocative, they didn't fit. The characters were playing. I don't WanNa get into specifics. Wherever use any of those ideas? But it just too many things one concert each other. We have to make some hard choices as far as what game game we WANNA make. As, you're saying that the beginning. It came down to this idea of seeing empathy and telling that from two different sides and obviously something to preserve stories spoilers in where the story would go, because it does really demand, be played, I feel. It started out as you know on a like a product facing way a story about revenge. Why did? Though at the end of the day, wanting to really get down to empathy in this world, be sort of the catalyst for your interest in the story. I think that was the emotional core of what we were after. In targeted through and trying to figure out what is conflict about it? It was really to show. How Simonis characters are and how much conflict and so much of this for myself, I think the team is inspired by real world events where you have sides of conflict, and you see how they often dehumanized the other side to justify atrocious behavior. and. We felt through game. Play the putting in the shoes of Elliot to get you to fee, also ask certain feelings and put you in the second half of the game and through empathy through. Seeing the consequences, not just what you've done, but like what you've taken away. From his people get you to reflect on it. And that was kind of like what we were always after. I cannot track of of of your question. I just curious sort of of the. Sort of. Subverting that expectation, because so many of us went in expecting a revenge story, but I do things that I've taken away the most that empathy and that love and that care. That's the thing which is like maybe to a fault. We tried so hard to protect the experience players experience. We've done with the first game. Right within the last one never revealed why you're transporting Elliot from one coast to another, and ultimately the game is about the unconditional love. A parent feels for their child, and the sacrifice did. Megan is a feel to talk about that head on who will be taken away with experiences so for here? The say a here's an experience about empathy. You would play the first half. and You keep waiting for the shoe to drop. Your House is going to reflect back so instead. We presented something much simpler and then let you see how complex it is when

"dornbush" Discussed on Beyond!

"Hello everyone my name. Is Jonathan Dornbush in this? Podcast beyond episode. I gotTA look at it. Because it's been so long since we last recorded an episode sort of is episode. Six hundred forty-seven of items weekly playstation podcast. Part too. Because boy oh boy have we today. I'm joined this week by the One and only Lucy O'Brien how a year Jonathan Morning. We've had so much so that it's now the afternoon those who didn't my tweet. Who listened or watched the show? We record an episode with the four of us. The whole cast was back together. I thought it was a great episode. We talked about a bunch of stuff and unfortunately due to some technical issues we lost the episode two but Louis Pods like it was so much great discussion so many great jokes going to hear it to the annals of time it's such a shame especially they'll never hear my rendition of holding out for a hero which I use to open the show. It was pretty great but I promise I would never do it again. As ethnic during the show you remember so well one time thing one time one time one time only and no one will ever hear but of course we do have plenty to talk about sorry they wanna get to it. I do want to mention at the time of this. This'll probably be a sugar episode. Do those technical limitations but we do have plenty of last of us are to to talk about. If you haven't seen already I confirmed and we did on Janice walls by twitter that I am playing and going to be reviewing the last of us to John. Their review embargo is June twelfth. At twelve o one am Pacific. I am not allowed to say anything else about the game other than I'm playing in reviewing it We will get into my impressions of the Review of course on June twelfth. So you can look forward to that but can tell us sitting here going hills cool. That's great full of envy me. I'm sorry I cannot wait to get my hands on this game. Well I can't tell you whether or not you should want to not wait or not. But you'll have to wait for my impressions till then but we can talk about is of course the state of play and the recent sort of inside the last of us videos that coming out. We delayed recording the episode this week. Of course to talk about the state of play. We got roughly a twenty minute deep dive into the sequel For those who didn't watch Did Washington the livestream? This is funny the basically saying the same stuff we did this morning. I definitely would recommend going to check out the four K. Like now uploaded version of the video on Youtube. Like if you watch the livestream. It just isn't the same qualities watching pretty gorgeous. Game play on the video as it has in the final player of what we got was a sort of overview of the mechanics. The story of the world a setting the stage by Neil Druckman the director of the game. And then a sort of eight minute chunk of gameplay that was following Ellie three whole SORTA scenario since I'm not wanting to blur the lines of what I can't say but for now. Lay Gimme a sort of overview and then we can get into the nitty gritty of it. How did you feel about the state of play showcase for the last love I it was? It was definitely the most impressive state of play for me. Pencil. A just the way it was presented by Neil And presented with a great deal of compassion by Neil considering the Times that we're in which I really appreciated And it was it was it. Was appropriate like hype. Reveal the not much to reveal obviously Iran noses game exists but like they showed intensive the for we will give it about the world and how you terrific CETERA. It really felt like I was in the crowd at an at an eighth shirk ace and the Made Light. That is kind of off for really from a state of play. I felt it was it was. It was really really really really great. Yeah that just brought to mind. Norfolk wants to talk about when I at this glad. I'm doing it here I back when I was in college. I we buy into a few threes by using school newspaper. And I got to go to this Sony. Press conference I believe where they did. The last one demo which was Joel basically going in and out of the apartment building and speaking around in that brutal showcase ended with I forget who was doing it But they finished it and they were like a real like power stance holding the controller and they dropped the controller like mic drop dead and walked off stage at the final kill and this game play sequence though evoked a lot of the same moment of like the you know to where we over a lot of the industry does but like the visceral nature of this cop out like this the sequel really seems to be leaning into the every little moment is going to matter. Every moment wants to be evocative whether it's gruesome brutal. Or you know by the skin of your teeth you use TV escape. Every little bit wants to be impactful which is ambitious but seems to be paying off in that demo. Yeah like I feel like I'm going to need to go for a massive run and then like sink three whiskeys before I stop playing this game. You know what I mean. I'm going to have to get some sort of energy out of me into the be in a very kind of calm head. Space in order the Because it does. It's we've always known that the lost of US Brutally unforgiving well Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. But again. I always forget that these characters that I love Massive shakes I do really care about the face of these characters. I do really care about what happens to the majority that they go on and I think one of the most profound moments for me in this particular demo was win l. e. the Veto would be working woman. She will fit forever. The immobilisers woman playing hotline Miami on a station Vita before the last thing she does west gets killed. How did die playing me? All that's heartbreaking on so many levels I'm sure it's how Greg Miller wants to go out one of the moments. That really reminded me of the series kind of eating hot. You know it's it's it's humanity Is when Ellie does stabbed this woman in the neck and it's it's gross in of sudden it's easy and the whole tussle is sort of frustrating. You know any kind of since. La's frustration in that moment. And she says that was dumb. Like you know something like that was. That was really stupid. That was really don and like yes that that whole thing was dominoes on. This area was like that that women didn't need to to try to turn around and try and kill Ellie like it was also unnecessary. Wholesome scenario seems frustrating and it was also like the way she said it was kind of like placing it's been used like it was slightly like bleakly. Funny you know and it just again. It just reminded me of L. E. is this is Ellie. I flipped I got like she. She is she is funny. She is You know there is so much of humanity tour. She's like despite the fact that she's very much being presented as like a much much more. I don't WanNa say cold-blooded but I guess there's no other word for it. Like she's much more a she she's had to survive. Long time in this very unforgiving world like Biz chief. Haden's I really get that sense but at the same time she still ellie and I really just that little low really brought that harmful in this in the state of play

It's Been a Super Busy Week for the Switch

"Welcome to Nintendo voice chat My name is Tom Marks temporary host again this week joining me today is Mr Brennan Graber Hey what's up and Mr Jonathan Dornbush hey just give us a minute all right yeah give it some time let will grow on you this episode four seventy nine it's kind of weird week this week because there's much going on we're getting into the busy fall season so a pair isn't here. Brian is busy with a preview Casey just got back from Japan shoes at Nintendo Live Zach is in La Janet is in Seattle it's just like everyone is when we wish him well there but yeah a busy busy week so I got some good good friends we're going to be we've got a good show for you still we're GONNA be talking about some recent news older there's not a ton this week we're also talking about a would there has been attend this week is review news so we're GONNA be talking about recent reviews for switch or the biggest ones of this week sorry Jonathan did you have a point to make up oh thumbs up even a thumbs up domino is off to a great start already got a busy week for releases there's a lot coming out so be sure to stick around we just got a lot of great stuff talk about this laid back episode and for the first thing we want to talk about let's talk to start jumping in with with news because there's there's not a ton but there are some cool things to discuss here the first being I feel like it's become a weekly tradition on this show Tuesday hey there's new pokemon stuff were in that cycle where there unreleased things every week they're really getting people going hype and people up by adding just need a little bits and pieces this week we got fat peak itchy Cha end long mouth hand along we also got a weird flaming charred I think somebody pointed out this is the fourth alternate a fourth version because there's the charred mega ex mega y and then now this guy which is gigantic Max journalists more than Lynn and farm heroes game your summer chart here's a winter charges charter just having like an identity crisis trying to figure out like who's the true Char's are I think people I just really like buying Char's dragon yeah people like charter charter school so these gigantic tax forms which basically means if certain pokemon that dynamex which means getting really big if you have a and this is the weird thing a specific po come on that can gigantic Max will show up with a different look to the so pika chew if you have data and this is the kind of interesting to me if you have data from let's go Pika Chew you can transfer that and get a p get you bet gigantic Max's into this very fat Pika Chew reminiscent of its first Iteration Husky boy yeah like pokemon yellow box art yeah yeah exactly similarly if you have data from let's go easy you get this very flu fee ev that gigantic taxes lucky boy yeah there's also chart I don't think they mentioned how you get that charge hard if you have let's go with the mouth is not exactly like a preorder bonus it's like if you play at the beginning of the game klay early you get this meow that will turn into basically long we had like mystery gifts that they would send out a mail and so it's probably me some of them like hey tune in for the next two months to get your you know crazy haunts the forearms right answers Cuban who's always not depressed finally happy happy it would be the saddest thing to skulls the other thing they showed was butter free that just kind of look like it had bigger prettier wings so it'll be interesting to see I like that they're doing ask that they're shaking up the the Dinah maxing tickets flavor yeah nice yeah it's not just we took the model and we stretched a right it was my worry when they showed that something like it's just GonNa look weird doing fun stuff with it especially when you're introducing a new thing that all of the previous pokemon generation and have added bells and whistles and tried to shake things up especially recently when it comes to battles but there can always be a little bit of trepidation so I think giving this nice visual incentive to for yeah to get something different out of it I like a lot I don't necessarily think it's going to convince any of the people who were not convinced by dynamex her show but it it at least is a nice little added touch it's interesting to see this this thing where it's like only specific only this mouth can do this only this Pika chew that is from the let's go peek data can do this not just any Piquiachu that's an interesting little mechanic that they're adding in the other thing I wanted to call out is our very own Janika who's away right now did a hands on preview gone up as a Thursday morning when we posted this show she got to play the first ninety minutes of Sword Shield and did a big old hands on on so go check out I G M dot com to read her thoughts on on her time with game after having spent some actually significant time with because we have played at three but it was just real brief of a gym yeah it was simple and so she she got some genuine time from what I hear is a major player in this game yeah as blue should be but yeah I talked to Janet a bit too not to like speak on her behalf please go check out our preview but yeah as she was telling me about what she saw she seemed pretty positive on like the things it's maintaining but also trying to off the formula right she caught it I think she called it like their most ambitious game in the series which is cool here adding digital we'll do that go straight to I'm telling you early in the first five minutes I will roll you out of here on that very easy on this floor it really is it's very slippy you guys don't see this but we fight a battle every moment on this show now just not slipping away from that so yeah go check out our program on previous preview on Dot com right now another of news that dropped that I was really interested to see God people more excited than I was expecting manufacturable analog who are known for making these super not which is a system that hardware emulates so that you can play Super Nintendo Games on it it's not essentially it mimics a super nintendo oh to play Super Nintendo games properly but you still need the game right you still need the games they're very against emulating games they WANNA make hardware that will run those games they just announced something called the analog pocket which is looks like a fancy little gameboy pretty much and it will play Gameboy Games game boy color games and homeboy advanced games and you again you need the cartridges this is actually playing these things but it'll play these systems or these games just out of the gate you just plug in the Trajan works except it has three point five inch LCD screen that's sixteen hundred by fourteen forty resolution and the whole thing is to hun everydollar what excited I do have a an sp on my desk that cannot hold a charge for battery I lost the chargers it and I really WanNa play one of the Games but I can't so this is like ooh this could be a workaround that will be nice the one thing I'm kind of like if the design it's making that that original gameboy look but it's a lot more sleeker but I would have almost wanted a an SP version or an advanced version words or horizontal vertical right I mean DSP is the undisputed best game boy so I my gameboy advance S. P. it's one of my great childhood tragedies that I had to throw it out at some point in a move yeah I like the design of how sleek it is but I don't know if I will buy it for two hundred dollars mostly because like my gameboy advance S. P. I don't have any of my gameboy library anymore right and that's like the big sticking point for me is like if these games are more easily accessible in a legal way to buy and obviously you know a lot of game stops and other stores have older libraries but man I would play so many of my old games like I spent so much time on my gameboy advance foundational to my love of games but this is a really cool tool for collectors or people held onto all these things to play these games easily on a piece of tack that's not you know decades old at this time and the really nice for yeah so this is another the thing is this is coming in two thousand twenty some time and it's going to have a separate thing that you can buy also that is a doc like the switch where you can plug your gameboy game into the analog pocket and then you plug the analog pocket into a doc and you can connect a bluetooth controller to that and then play your game boy color or Gameboy advance or gameboy games on a t we like a switch basically it's much more elegantly than the Gamecube gameboy adapter young into the bottom of the system. So funny I still have one of those I I had service yeah so goofy yes so that's it I mean I don't know if I'd ever want to play a game boy game on a four K. TV but it's cool that they're just taking that extremely accessible to do yeah yeah I think like ten game boy games on me so the price point is an issue boy also have pairs giant Goodie bag true game boy games steel for oil there's just get a bag of game boy games in a pile and like picking one out it's like oh wow castle or like oh well beauty and the beast for gameboy color copies of Sri Castle the castle real I didn't know this was a thing way back yeah oh teddy release system the Gameboy back the analog pocket you can check it out for yourself we've got more details on Jan well it's very it's very cool I just like elected they're doing this I I really appreciate analog doing stuff even if the price point is our above the range that I would be paying WanNa pay for it it's a it's still going to be really nice thing for the people who do go after that and can't afford it price point like I understand it especially for the people who probably do have collections and are like willing to shell out because of how useful and modern of piece of equipment this is moving on there's a couple of other things sonic is coming to super monkey ball banana blitz hd this is the master of the we

Former Vice President Al Gore talks climate change solutions in the Twin Cities

"Former Vice President Al Gore comes to Minnesota. I'm N._P._R.. Chief meteorologist Paul Hutton here. This is climate gas. He's arguably the most important historical figure in expanding climate change awareness in America <hes> and the world his two thousand six film an inconvenient truth introduce climate change science and solutions to millions. His work earned the Nobel Peace Prize this weekend former Vice President Al Gore is here in Minnesota training twelve hundred climate activists through his climate reality project. He sat down with me at the event in Minneapolis Mr Gore thanks for taking the time to talk with us on climate cast today and hey welcome to Minnesota. It's great to be back. You know you're here in the the twin cities this weekend for this climate reality project training event. Why did you start climate reality and what does this accomplish well because I came to the conclusion Susan that the only way we can change policies in time to solve the climate crisis is with grassroots pressure from every state in our country from every county and so I decided when my first movie came out I used one hundred percent of the profits from that movie and the book to <hes> to set up the climate reality project and to mobilize Aisa thousands of people tens of thousands of people to put pressure on their elected representatives and business leaders and civic leaders and community leaders nice to to make the changes that we need to make let's go back thirty one years ago this Summer Nastase Dr James Hansen testifies before your your committee in Congress and he says there's a ninety nine percent degree of confidence for a cause and effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming? How important was that testimony in your path to climate change awareness well? I think that was an important moment. <hes> in making lots of people realize is that this is for real and we need to do something about it unfortunately in the wake of that hearing and the others that I and other members of Congress Health <hes> the fossil fuel <hes> industries took the playbook prepared by the tobacco companies companies back when the doctors and scientists say hey folks <hes> smoking cigarettes causing lung cancer or disease and they hired actors dressed up as doctors and put him on T._V.. To falsely tell people that there was no health problem at all well that same blueprints what's been used by the fossil fuel companies with the point of bring that up is in a healthy democracy where the truth was turned into power testimony like that of Jim Hansen you asked about would have led to dramatic policy changes reason it hasn't is because of the political influence of the coal companies the oil companies in the gas companies but we're gaining on them and these grassroots activists including an impressive number of them here in Minnesota are really making progress ars you talk about policy. You came within a whisker of the presidency in President Gore I like to think it would have been completely and totally different of course in our country. A president has to persuade the Congress Congress and asked to be a skillful politician and getting support for his or her initiatives but I like to think I would have been able to to put in completely different policies that would help to avoid some of this <hes> heartache and hardship and I still think we can do that. We've lost some ground for sure. Some damage has been made inevitable now unfortunately but we still have time to avoid the most catastrophic consequences so rather than looking back and crying over spilt milk as they say. I look forward and try to figure out what I can do to serve in different way. Just watch you give what we might. Call the talk talk at this climate reality event not that dissimilar from the one you used in an inconvenient truth but how has your presentation changed in the thirteen years since the the movie is changed dramatically in a lot of ways because I can bring up examples of floods or droughts or storms or whatever whatever not from ten years ago but from yesterday or last week and literally every night on television news is like a nature ager. I threw the book of revelation and the examples that illustrate all of what the scientists have been warning us about are all around us now every single day. I think that does make an impression on people I know it. Does it makes an impression on me. Yeah I WANNA get your assessment of where we are with the big big picture on climate change today. We're seeing the positive side rapid progress on solutions like renewables Minnesota here. We generate twenty five percent of our electric power. You're from renewables as you know last year. That's way faster than people thought it would happen fifteen years ago. Public opinion is shifting. We know that a little bit and yet greenhouse gas emissions are still rising globally and this administration is basically a wall or going backwards on solution so what's the right urgency level here and what's your assessment of how this plays out for the next ten to twenty years the dramatic truth is that those of us who are alive today we have in our hands decisions to make that will have enormous consequences for thousand generations to come. Tom and that sounds overly dramatic but it's the case. We're putting one hundred ten million tonnes every day of this heat. Trapping pollution into the sky stays there for a thousand years on average and it's trapping so much extra heat <hes> the amount of extra heat energy every day is equal to five hundred thousand or Rocha uh-huh class atomic bombs exploding every day. That's crazy but that's what we're doing. Now what I think you're getting at in the first part of your question is how do we see this. They're contracting interesting trend some good some bad <hes>. We're gaining momentum for the solutions but we're not yet gaining on the crisis crisis because the crisis is still getting worse faster than we are mobilizing solutions yet because we're gaining momentum we may soon have within our capacity the ability to gain on the problem there was a famous economists in the last century name. Rudy Dornbush who once said things take longer to happen than you think they will but then they happen much faster than you thought they could. I think think that it's likely to be true. Where are solutions to this crisis. It's taken longer than many of us thought. It would hoped it would anyway but. But I think that we're now getting to the point where it could happen faster than anybody can imagine to take one example <hes> when the cost of electricity <hes> pity from solar and win gets not only cheaper than electricity from Cohen Gas but way cheaper then no matter how much political political power the fossil fuel companies have it would just take a complete idiot to continue spending way more money than necessary to create dirtier and expensive electricity when you can have it for much cheaper when cleaner air and more jobs and I think we're right in that region now where we're going to see see this flip over and more rapid change. I hope that I'm not pollyannish or overly optimistic but that's the pattern I see unfolding right now. Let's talk about about how that seems to be happening a little bit. I mean if you look at investors. The big insurance firms Swiss re Munich REC- this changing catastrophic loss model we saw P._G.. Any go bankrupt <hes> because of the fire liability in California right. I mean some saying that's the I fortune five hundred climate bankruptcy. How important is this growing investor risk awareness in driving that positive change you talk about Oh. I think it's extremely important there was a story this this morning about the largest private investor black rock losing many billions on fossil fuel investments and they're still the largest fossil fuel in bed. I'm not picking on my in respect them a lot but there so many investors who are taking a close look at the fact that these carbon assets <unk> are really not that different from the subprime mortgages of a few years ago you know there were seven and a half million subprime mortgages meaning mortgages that it looked as if they were triple. A. Rated assets with a value that was based on <hes> false assumptions when actually they were worthless because they'd been given out to people that couldn't make monthly payments and good make down payments and there was a mass delusion and people finally pull pull back the layers of the onion enough to see the truth of it and they suddenly collapsed and that's what caused the credit crisis and then the great recession well. We've now got twenty two trillion dollars worth of carbon assets the reserves of coal and oil and gas and the stocks and these as multinational companies that are based on the assumption that all that fossil fuels going to be burnt well it can't be burn won't be burned not just because of some mm treaty or some law but because solar and wind is going to be much cheaper and efficiency is reducing the demand for what they're selling an electric cars or a progressively destroying the market for liquid petroleum assets and it's only a matter of time before they wake up to this the largest sovereign wealth fund in the world the Norwegian Fund which got all his money from oil and gas. They're really smart. They just announced they're going to divest one hundred percent for from oil and gas assets a so those who are taking the time to read the handwriting on the wall are coming to the conclusion that they need to get with this change and move onto into renewables and the sustainability revolution.

And then just I don't know. It's very cool excited. See where it goes. It's interesting that there's no deal sea plans for the game. Has there ever been deal? See for kingdom hearts games. No. But kmarts game has come out in a world with deal. See it's true. Thousand five we came out of the PS two. There was there's been liking hearts game since then but not like big titles. The closest thing to marches over had to deal. See is the final mixes which are like remix versions of the game. With a lot of added content. Bring out eventually that's kind of kin watch tradition.

I'm more ties ation of development costs for major new titles and increased advertising expenses. We also learned that many people from. When that many people I mart devices and browsers launched in the sense. We also learned that many people for smart from I don't know smart devices and browsers launched in the previous fiscal year performed below expectations and failed to generate additional revenue on top of that brought in by established games in order to dress the issue related to mobile game squirt Unix intends to focus on select titles and games based on existing IP's on top of that they aim to rebuild the development and operation organizations and strive to create new hit titles right square. It's so interesting and crazy to see where square is at right now compared to Capcom let me jump ahead read some Capcom.
