Fresh update on "giant" discussed on KLIF Specialty Programming
"Dot com. They say the results of magnesium on the mood can be dramatic. So this is really, really big when you think about sleep. I like to think about melatonin. We know that magnesium is crucial for healthy, dreaming, healthy sleep and sleep quality. I don't want to go through the whole alphabet J was using that more is just a metaphor for how big the suite of benefits is that magnesium Impax? Well, it's incredible, and we've been talking about this for years that when you are missing out on certain Vitamins and minerals and other nutrients. Your body just doesn't function properly. And you don't feel right and there really is something in every letter of the alphabet here. You know, it's really interesting. I had no idea that magnesium was involved in melatonin production. Uh, melatonin is very popular for our customers. It really helps them sleep better, so that is a huge benefit. But you're only up to D and you've listed like nine different benefits of magnesium. Why don't we? Uh why don't we just go to eat? Because I can't wait to hear what you could have come up. What is he Let me guess. Energy. Well, you got that right energy when we think about energy and magnesium, of course, as crucial as CO Q 10 is for energy production. Magnesium is right there. Health line reports. Magnesium is responsible for 600 biochemical reactions in the body. But we've talked about energy and magnesium. When you do the research for the You also find exercise performance. This is what really struck me as a surprise. In one study in 2014 J. They looked at this is in sports science. Volleyball players who took 350 mg of magnesium per day boosted their ability to jump and it enhanced their arms swinging movements. Of course, this is invaluable. So I'm thinking maybe they were measuring serve speed or things like that. But By the way, these were people who didn't even have a magnesium deficiency. These were healthy, You know, athletes, So these are absolutely crucial findings and again helps to build that case that magnesium maybe the most important mineral that's missing in your diet. Even if you have a subclinical deficiency, the results can be pervasive. So it's time for us to do something about it. And that's what today's show is all about. So so let me ask for people who are listening. And you know, we always Recommend the first option is get your vitamins and minerals and your key nutrients from your foods from your diet, But obviously you can't always do that. That's where nutritional supplements Uh, come into play and you know, it seems like it's virtually impossible to get enough magnesium in your diet, even if you were trying No doubt about it. When you look at the list of foods that you would have to eat to have healthy levels of magnesium, and perhaps some people can pull this off. But you're talking about the green leafy vegetables boiled spinach, Swiss chard among beans. You know how many among means did you get right chickpeas? So these are kind of odd ingredients to load up on on a regular basis. And if you got him this week, did you Are you going to get him next week, but not only that people take certain Drugs or, uh, the proton pump inhibitors. There are others, uh, antacids. If you drink too much coffee, and this will actually deplete your body of magnesium, making your shortage even worse. It's an absolute fact. Some of those key ingredients that we enjoy every day they'd even have some side benefits like coffee. For some reason, deplete the body of magnesium levels, right. And like you said those and acids. Um, you know, if you need to take it, you need to manage your magnesium level. So getting a dietary supplement that gets magnesium right? That's also been elusive for so many people, right and and I think now is a great time to bring up our new supplement. We call it Mag Blue. They are probably the most beautiful tablets we've ever had a purity products. There's a special technology, according to Technology that makes these very, very easy to swallow. I'm sure you'll get into that. So why don't you? Why don't you be the one to tell us about Mag Blue? Tell the audience about at its core J. The idea behind Mag Blue is let's do something with magnesium that's never been done before. I mean, if you want to run out and get cheap, magnesium, the magnesium carbonates in the sulfates there 4% efficient. So you wind up taking massive amounts four or five big giant whopper pills to get a few 100 mg of magnesium. That's like the old technology. The magnesium biss glisten, a buffered key late, which is the latest technology is four times more efficient. So you have much smaller tablets. We like that idea because our customers when we do this service, they're like, Don't give me those big tablets. I want the smaller ones. We added this slippery tech coding, which is a slippery technology to these beautiful blue tablets so that they go down faster and smoother than any tablet in the industry. But at its core, What makes mag blue unique is sure it has the 350 MG of this elite, magnesium and sure it's in these beautiful blue small tablets. But we added vitamin D 2000 units. We added a little bit of zinc and boron and these blueberries Jason Yeah, Channel I love these. Tell everyone about these organic blueberries that we source from Northern Canada. Talk about the Bears for a second. I understand There are some issues with bears up there too sometimes. What we do to get these blueberries you would not believe. I mean, they come from way up north in Canada, the winters there they are brutal. It's so harsh. These conditions that are wild organic blueberries up there. They need to create their own antioxidant defense, and they are literally bursting. With antioxidant power. And yes, there are bears up there. They love the blueberries, too. So we got to be a little careful, But people love blueberries because they're so great for the brain. We actually call them brain Berries. And when you use Mag blue, you've got these blueberries. They're 200% more potent than regular blueberries in terms of their antioxidant power. That's why we call this formula. Matt Blue because of these super potent blueberries that are in here in every time. You take Mag blue. You get these benefits and you.

Sports Marketing Podcasts Opportunities With Learfield IMG College CMO Jennifer Davis
"Do you find that in sports media. I know in radio. There's individual shows that are around one sports or at least a local market. You get a local sports channel. They're gonna talk about the bears and the giants and the cardinals. and the forty niners. And maybe the raiders. Even though they're in vegas they kind of bounce around from individual topic but with podcasting feeds you can be more verticalised. You can just have one specific show. I've seen this on the professional level where there is a warrior show sponsored by the athletic core nbc. But i haven't seen it in the collegiate level where there is the cal bears basketball show by anybody other than the cal athletic program. Maybe it's just because cal. Flex aren't as popular as texas in alabama and florida and some of the other major programs. But are you seeing sort of vertical is shows that are individual sports or school specific. I think there's a huge opportunity there and actually more nuance than what you think. Because college sports people tend to be fans of whatever that our team is playing. Even if they don't know the rules of the game like would we started doing e. sports at the college level. I saw some great tweets from college. Sports fans die hard like tennessee football fans. They're like my team is doing well and east sports. I don't know what that is. But i'm a tennessee band so go volunteers and i think there is as you said kind of across sport affinity but then there are some programs and often it could be the revenue generating sports football basketball but it also could be some of the olympic sports where the fans a lot has been written recently about the fans being very fluid in that. They don't get a lot of game day or meet day content because of the nature of the sport there van said they are used to looking for nontraditional content to keep up with what's happening in gymnastics or field hockey or swimming or rowing. So i think there's opportunity to do exactly what you are talking about in especially because of that community element. I think we talked about that. A couple of episodes ago is that. There's nothing like that college community. College community can be rallied around a specific type. And i think you're onto

To enter this new category joining us to discuss is tech reporter sara nadelmann. Hey sarah thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. So tell me why does net flicks wanna get into gaming. Netflix wants to get in gaming. Because it's a very lucrative business and games unlike. Tv shows and movies can provide entertainment for months or even years or longer Gained followers can update their games very easily over the internet with new maps new characters new modes of play so the really sticky and long lasting and so for netflix which is seen slice subscriber growth. It's really important that the company retain its users and of course add nuance. The other thing for netflix is that is facing a lot of stiff within the video streaming realm so You know user growth has been slowing and at the same time. It's facing its first serious challenges to his business. You have while disney's disney plus one or media's hbo max you have companies like apple amazon.

Netflix to Dive Into Video Games
"That's looks he's getting into gaming marking big expansion for the streaming media giant. But we actually play these games. Roger chang this. Is your daily charge. Here talk about netflix. Upcoming venture is seeing. That media reported jones jonsman. I've object so first off. What netflix actually announce yesterday. Net flex confirms what it's already been telegraphing for while That it does want expand into video games. it's flirted with them a little bit in the past But what it wants to do is basically make video games. Starting with mobile games like another genre of programming on its service started out with their high profile highbrow drama series and then a few years later they expanded into reality shows and horror movies. They're kind of seeing video games as sort of the evolution of that but obviously video games are very different than you know a narrative television show or movie. Yeah i mean. That's a great point. Because i i know. Netflix is trying to spin this as almost another genre. It's expanding into but it feels like it's a whole it's a whole different experience and appears that's doesn't seem to have a lot of experience in gaming like what what are you sort of expect to senior. Well they've sketched out some pretty broad ambitions from what they're going to do they want to start out with mobile gaming i And but they've also said that they can see that expanding to every kind of device that they already support for netflix. Which means that. They envision gaming consoles as candidates for the kind of games they make desktop possibly gaming and of course streaming. Tv's which aren't necessarily you know you don't associated as gaming device quite as much but that's definitely where a lot of the growth has been in terms of watching television movies on that flex so maybe they'll figure maybe we'll crack the code on connected tv. Casual gaming. I don't
Republicans Plan to Block Infrastructure Bill
"Senator. You're on finance. So i wanted to bring up three things. The debt limit is coming. The reconciliation bill is coming and the infrastructure. Bill may or may not be coming. Let's take him in reverse order as of wednesday morning. July twenty first. What do you expect today when chuck schumer moves vote on the infrastructure so-called compromise bill so he will move to a bill with no text in fact texas not even written yet and say i want to start debate on it today and it will go down It should be pretty basic statement to say. We're not going to debate something if no one is literally not read it because it's literally not been written yet so that that's a whole new level of we've got a pass it before we know what's in it It's a point to say. Let's vote on it before we even have it written yet so that will fail. Today that allows by the way procedurally. Schumer will still be able to bring it back up whenever he wants to. Just because it fails today doesn't end it It puts it in this pause that he can bring up at any moment in the days ahead. Now expect you would try to do that again. Depending on what happens senator lankford. I have been amazed by the left right center agreement that this makes no sense for senator schumer to do. Have you discerned some master plan at work in the majority. Leader's mind that is somehow loading every reporter in dc. No the only thing i can think of is he's trying to just push it into say if this is gonna happen. Let's have it happened right now because if it's not going to happen then i wanna just cram all this same information into this giant taksin spending spree bill that they're pulling together to come up next and i think he's saying even if we're not going to get a bipartisan. Bill done Then i'm just gonna make the bill even larger and it'd be able to keep going from there so i think he's just trying to discern. Is this going to happen or not. The best i can tell quite frankly. It's a terrible way to actually legislate When you know we're working towards sixty he keeps trying to say well. We can't get to sixty. We can't get to sixty. So republicans are so recalcitrance and then he continues to do stuff like this. Were even people on the left. Say wh- what in the world. Why would you do it this way. But he'll turn around and blame republicans when it's over in the willing media will just take it up and just say yes. Republicans blocked this

The Story of Pecos Bill and the Tornado
"Once upon a time in the wild west a little boy named bill fell off a wagon by the side of the pecos river. Now a normal baby would have cried. His eyes out that this boy was different. He crawled up to a mama coyote and just acted like one of her pups. It was a little hard with him. Not being as hairy. But he was raised by the coyotes for years until his older brother eventually found him and brought him home years later after that he went by the name of paco's spill and as he got older he became famous for being the toughest bronco buster there ever was and he proved it time and time again. Now in case you're a greenhorn. A bronco buster is someone who gets horses used to a saddle. Some horses are okay with being britain but others not so much the fastest and strongest horses. The best for rough riding would fight the saddle. They had to be ridden through the fighting until they got used to it to make that happen someone would have to try and ride while they were still wild. Of course the stallions would buck and spin and kick and jump and go absolutely wild until they sent their writer into the dirt. It was a hard job and bronco busters where the people they called when someone couldn't break a horse themselves and when you had a horse too tough to mean to downright nasty for a buster. You called paco's bill. Bill would travel around the wild parts of america looking for adventure and boy did he find it on his travels. He singlehandedly doug the mississippi river battled the bear lake monster to a standstill and fell in love with a wild woman who rode giant catfish down the rivers. And all that. It's just the first go round in the rodeo of bills life

"Like reading through these plans. i see. I see why they would do this because they have to do something. But it's looking like i. I don't know how appealing that would be to a lot of publishers. I think about like what's a preview night. May well we'll find out if they decide to do it but like you know. Is that going to be like the press. Gets to watch all the videos early and then write stuff up and then like people get people can have to pay because typically it was like hey if you were industry at comecon. They had a preview night right. That's early packs would have their like night before things for exhibitors. So is it something like that and then everything just leaks like. What is that with phrase. What are we really talking about here. so i i don't know it's obviously you know we're basing this off of leaks and it's not the full story and all that sort of stuff so we'll see what they eventually bring together but you know on its surface look like. I don't know that that meets a lot of needs from publishers out there down ward show to like yeah do we need another one of those down the worst. It's kind of cool very ambitious. Plan like the says that a typical day would run from ten. Am to ten pm eastern. Oh no for three days. So that's too much e- three that's a lot of content and it's all like not like the has a production staff in house or something like that's the member companies having to on that schedule to fill it out right like that seems like a lot of moving parts in a pretty big ask for a lot of companies to actually make that much content happen. Yeah i need to get hotel to have a shower by six o'clock digital or not. It's just get you get really. Yeah yeah definitely a damp slick and that's part of los angeles. He spend that much time in los angeles slimy. It's so gross. I'd love for there to be another thing like i. There's something about that call to action that week in like all eiser video games or just the sense of it the bills cool like whether or not you're there or being there as a as a consumer watching live on the internet like Some of my best memories are watching those shows on gamespot and giant bomb over the years but like yeah with the.

"Effective. I get a little misty when the family ties song comes on i've been watching a lot of like pluto. Cvs company anymore. So it's bad. I don't wait. Hang on what are you trying to say going to beep it now. The wire sure some some good suggestions from chat here or somebody says law and order which right up there with matlock for me. Oh yeah for sure. The twin peaks which is super can also quantum air wolf. Air was good mask. Who have now jason the wheel warriors. Yeah but who would. Do you remember the intro. Music to dash not read was incredible. It was just like it was like lyric like heart like like. I don't know hair metal. I'd have to go back. Okay all right all right. Yeah yeah that was real good. It's wrong with middle. Just got nothing. Okay well yes means yes. I get it all right It's a free meal slicks. Everyone who wrote in bomb cast at giant bomb dot com kind of feels like it's like new year's 'cause we just came off game of the year. It's like all right well. It's chips the first week of january. I was founded here started. Yeah i was very confused after game of the year like last weekend last weekend i was like oh all right. Yeah go back to work for fred. Oh wait no. It's super super. This is really weird for the world to still be continuing on while we were doing it because even when we recorded in december like it's so late in the year that most people who are not lunatics and wants to kill themselves in december. Right are not doing. There's a lot of news breaking. There's not a lot happening because people are companies winding down for the year. So like yeah coming out of game of the year with that mess with xbox live gold and stuff like that. I was like weird like people doing works right now while we're doing this. Did you enjoy more. Because i always feel like the end of the year is just like all of that review period stuff to somebody new games by the time december. You're just so tired and then the last week at the end of christmas it's it's not there it's just it's all compressed. Did you guys enjoy. The process of market was less stressful. I definitely got to play more games leading up to it. Felt like touch more games and no more stuff about them going into it. So that part was nice in a way felt more efficient too because there is such crunch and in a december typically You know and then the really not a lot going on in january right so We were able to with that effort towards you know playing games for making sure that we were knowledgeable about this stuff that we talk about. Yeah i think that aspect of it felt better like having a little bit more time because normally like we record that stuff like thanksgiving happens and then we walked ourselves in a room the following week and two weeks and do all that stuff due to think about how. If we reported game of the year last year on the normal schedule we would be like god all the way through most or all the way through before morals and especially cyberpunk came out right right so like imagine missing all that stuff and not having that be for the consideration. Well when did what cyberpunk date. Wasn't it the eighth. Twelfth was the to like cyberpunk may have acted into where it factored in in some way. Tenth december tenth. Maybe that would have been after that. So i don't know how on your mind and qualifying everything against it. The whole time didn't play much apart in the end. Yeah it would've been but that would have been like. Oh yeah this games also better than cyberpunk. This game is also better than cyberpunk. Yeah i don't think it would have been that game. Did not cast a super long shadow. Just saying we wouldn't have seen all the calamity around it. You're right we've seen some of it. Some of it was instant started. You started getting a sense for it for Yeah it was cool. It was just kind of expeditious to do it. All live cozi otherwise like look at how time consuming that was like. That's the site going dark for a week if prerecord all that stuff right dow making other content while we're doing that so yeah prerecording stuff. That's the weird balance right is like if you prerecord a bunch of stuff. That's days that things are not going live. And if you're doing stuff then all of it is live that has its own ups and downs too weird interesting change of pace as spock asked. Danny thank you so much for coming by next next tuesday which get going on i was gonna. I was going to leave my hat. It has no wait now not doing opera. Yeah i'm still around round time. Come back by back twice to keep playing games. You know cool all right. See the that amiga shelf up there. Yeah let's people to poster. I would love to have a long conversation with you about what you do in speed ball to and and future basketball for the amiga which came out here as bill ambulance combat basketball for the snow s.

"It's a tuesday january twenty six twenty twenty. One sounds getting impossible date to me. The first giant bomb cast of the rest of our lives. I brad shoemaker joined by jeffers. Mnay jas jason easter egger. Any data dwyer had shit dwyer doing not too bad well saying guys earlier. I think we're done with the caveat rice. We're not saying like all things considered or you know global pandemic withstanding. Yeah this is just if you discount the like all of the shit that's happening out there and then the mental poll was taken on me over. Its five yup to a good good. This is just the baseline now exactly. You're starting from the new normal. A good night's sleep in two and a half year. I'm doing great. What else you got to keep them coming helps. What's that alcohol. Oh go on but it's you know it's a problem though was that oh yes. That's not what they say. It's not a problem on earth. Alcohol can't make worse. i have not had a. I don't think. I have touched any alcohol of any notable quantity. I guess other than like a sip of wine or like my Since the baby was born is there play has been this feeling of like what are some shit goes down and i gotta drive fair. Yeah sure and like a couple of times came real close like tonight's the tonight nice tonight. I'm gonna. i'm gonna quietly get very drunk. That's not how that works. That's not how that works at all the stumble around or wake of all out Like natural ways to like have a nice drink with friends anymore. We do a zoom call drinking thing like beard hang it. Yeah nice but like outside at all you're doing is at home drinking Which is you know. There's no way of dressing it up pandemic or nash. You're just kind of like you know the you can manufacture the reason that like the fight was on last a couple of sips of whiskey but that was nice. But yeah it's everything's her that way for shabanie say so it has been legit. I mean yeah it's been it's been fine. I mean no clips. Still trudging along. We can't ever go to anyone's office ever again. But zoom still thing and we've just sort of like adopted a little bit but yeah honestly like i think the saving grace was last year to so many games that came out like twenty twenty such a solid year for games. I'd more time to play games than i had had. Since i left gamespot and i had a blast. And i'm so playing gotcha with all the stuff that came out last year. And then you know your game into your podcast. Didn't exactly help because now have a bunch of others right. Yes need to jump in and play timing for you to be here. We can now deliver to you. The objective authoritative one only top ten games with twenty twenty except the substance. It's twenty twenty game of the year four-night weirdly enough. Yeah yeah well you know. It's just i play it on my phone right right. That's been a lot of fun. Congratulations to super giant team over there for bringing home with with they just got i a question about that. Yes because i was talking to some of the guys. Yesterday we were doing our last interviews for the series. We're doing. It's all the last step so just want to upgrade. Its going up next week right right about right. I was catching up with jan yesterday and just reminiscing about you guys. Obviously doing building the bastion. And we're sort of talking about the fact that they'd one game with the giant bomb and she said she mentioned. She wasn't sure what she thought. Maybe you were. They ineligible for boston. I think so. I don't degree. I don't think they were eligible for awards. I think we just didn't want to review rice games. But it's we may have We zone to that effects and she mentioned that as she thought that was the case. Now not done that. That was the reason they didn't win it or anyone. I thought that was interesting. Sort of thing that you remember the big year for games they might have just not one but Yeah no that is that is always a weird. A weird one. Yeah i mean with a lotta. We didn't review dive kick. You know rice. Yeah dave language on my wedding an weird So like figuring out where those lines are and all that sort of stuff as been interesting over the years. But i don't know. But i think we you know typically just kind of let that to like. We're not going to review it. We're not gonna put a score on it. Let that live on metacritic and all these other sites or whatever and do that but also honestly like. I don't know that we necessarily review a ton of games anymore right anyway. So yeah it's kind of maybe that part of it is a little moot these days helluva they just got. I mean the dice the aids. I'm not just came out this morning and haitis all over those or a game of the year into game of the year like a lot of the different disciplines. And all that other stuff. I i was good ask game. Yeah not done well for themselves for sure although.

"Got to a place in dead cells where i just had builds that i really really strongly preferred whereas i think you know to to what jason was saying in haiti's there's like there's bills that i'm less comfortable with and and and weapons that i'm like i don't i don't love this weapon and even like the the cast. I never got to be great. I just remember to use it all the time. So i just would would spec away from it most of the time the time where i would go like It seems like the only choice here is back into it with with what i've got. Oh okay that's viable. Like i don't necessarily love using it because i'm just not well trained in using it. I'm used to using the other to the other attacks but yeah every part of that game feels great. Just moving around. And yeah. I'd like. Jason i i love stacking extra dash on their as many as you can get. Let me let me get in and out and not have to plan for the take a hit. The hermes upgrade after cash. You move yes. That's good to real good. I out or splash out of it. Like all the bosses feel fun to fight and they all like except for the bone dragon. All had these like which were going to say. They all had the skill curves to them that they never felt impossible. But on your first few tries they feel like oh my god. There's no way i'm going to be especially like the third area boss where there's too long god. There's no way i'm ever going to beat this. This seems impossible but just how the game is built. He's got a little better every time you get a little more knowledgeable you start learning your boons you start learning your synergies and you just start to and this is like a more abstract version of feeling but like it's the feeling you get of. I'm feeling like i'm progressing against these guys. Oh the muhtar and got killed by the spear guy. Okay well next time. Maybe i need to learn how to do it. Just it felt it felt bullshit but never impossible bullshit as i think a very hard thing to do in video. Yeah a difference between like do maternal in katie's where they both gave you a lot. But i think i think haiti's winds up giving you a lot of options and then in the in the combat saying pick three or three or four things where do maternal is like. Here's the seven things you should be doing at once You know we'll give them all to at any given time and you know play classical music. Don't miss a note where he's a little more like free format like go jabali. Here i think. And i don't think there's necessarily factors into the discussion here but i do think it was interesting to me. I don't know how many of us played that game when it started out in early access. A lot of that foundation was there like they obviously improved a lot of things and a big part of it was adding content but they did refined the game play over time but when they first launched that thing a couple of years ago a lot of what it still felt good about that game at launch was already there like they had a really strong foundation to build off of kinda right from the get go and i think that probably a long way when you already start out in that place like it. I think it's at that point. All you can do is just refine refined refine and they did well. Yeah but i think at the same time like the things they added to that game over. The course of early access are potentially dangerous. Because like you've got this foundation where it feels great. And you're like here's a new weapon like it. Would it seems like it would have been very easy to introduce a weapon that really fucked up. And and i think that ultimately what they hit upon is a good balance a good number of different weapons all of which feel dramatically different. But still ill at the bare minimum good but even that comes down to like a personal preference thing like i. I don't like the fists. That much as much. But i was very successful with them in a couple of cases too so it's yeah everything about controlling that character and moving that character around and using your abilities growing your abilities and just there. Are you feel powerful in a way where you get to win that game where you're like. I broke the game with how powerful i am right now. And that's a good feeling to have. But also i don't think you ever really quite break the game. You just have really dialed in what the build is and how to use it exactly correctly. And you've got you know something about difficulty curve and and you know. Obviously it's adjustable to to an extent. But i think they've they've made a game that is very attainable in a way to and like. Here's the rogue like you can beat you will in this game sooner or later i i you know i. I did a lot of pattern. Recognition built into in a traditional sense of. You can memorize the attacks of character in a way that i think. Let you let you learn against the machine. Yeah i think it's weird that they went ahead and just put like practically smash tv boss in the middle of that game with the bone dragon. Things like giant snakes and smash tv or something but gave to also tied and boone. You get that lets you skate around like iceman trion games. That's all you want. Yeah exactly you're skiing. Is it best tribes..

"It didn't hit big no. It didn't get hit. They said well. It's really neat. But sony really helped like you know. Make it a little more mainstream as well made it. Affordable made it you know. Put it in living rooms but like even for nothing more than shit i. I don't know if you can talk about it but this does new asrat have any vr support or. It's all just do stuff. Well there is no way to play playstation five games in vr. We have another news story here so you can infer from that that the this astronaut game is not of the our game. And so yeah. Yeah you're right. I think so. You helped create that demand and like could they created again. Maybe but also if you at the release of playstation vr games. It didn't set the world on fire. You know there's a lot of cool stuff. And obviously like star wars squadrons just came out and and as still doing that medal of honor game for oculus but like is ea going then. Green light five more vr games in the next three years. You know like what is their ongoing commitment from like them or any major publisher. It just doesn't seem like it's there and if is going to be this awesome playground for people who want to dive deep into crazy ass shit. Pc the platform for that and some of those experiences just might not make sense on a console to that more mainstream audience. So i can't fault sony for just like not committing here. If it was hot they'd be doing it and it gets hot. They'll do it but it doesn't seem like they're willing to like lead that charge again. Brad you may be muted. I myself just happens. Man has a mind of its own marine will tiny little brain and my phone that goes microphone. It was hot like that was my understanding. Most of the time since the for vr has been outed is that it was like exceeding expectations but launches credibly. Well like they. They did well out of the gate for sure but there is a line in this post story. That kinda surprised me. That says while five million headsets were sold by january of this year sales were slowing twenty twenty so and you have to assume the software sales have been tracking with that as well right. What were the marquee. Vr games last year this year. You know like blake trysts. Such respect to your tetris was probably the last huge one that is exactly like star. Wars squadrons is pretty cool in vr. If you care about sitting inside those ships but that almost seems like a runoff from like maybe that game was supposed to ship earlier and guy. I want the air or just i don't like it seems weird for ea to suddenly have like vr game out now in two thousand twenty. Seems like they may be like missed a little bit of the boat. Yeah this is this a bummer. To me i mean if let me know if the market realities have changed than they've changed in you know it doesn't make sense for them to continue investing but like tech has improved so much. Yeah the first. Psbr's it not not so much like head tracking and screen stuff but inside al tracking. And we're getting to the point. Where wireless headset seem like. They're almost about to make sense. And so like thinking about how comfortable f i p. Ps vr is and how easy set processes like. Yeah specifically the idea of ups vr on ps five that has wireless and automatic tracking anything to set up around. It would've been cool as hell like. Yeah just really liked the ps vr. As a right of your headset that you sit down on your couch you put on and you still play a video game with a controller. That's how i like to experience. We are. i'm not into like the full body movement stuff as much like so. You had tetris astro baa. Which i thought was great. Rally that type of vr. And that's sad because it's obviously not doing it through yeah was and it doesn't seem like it. I don't know it's. I think it's still you still look at like the launch of half-life alex and kind of wind. Yeah well you know. It's a single player. Game people are gonna play it and they're going to be done with it right. I mean you know it's it's It does some cool stuff But like it also the investment required. Still though it's a new half life game that could've been should've been a bigger deal than it was. And i don't even mean that say it was not a big deal Per se just that that seems like that should have been a a big thing than it was and it came out and people talked about it for a week and the people that love. The are are still talking about it. But you know that. Didn't necessarily bring in zillion you know it didn't change the conversation around. Vr still this thing of like. Hey this tech works. It's a shame in a lot of ways that like we as a society aren't more excited about the are for a thing that like has been this like weird dream for so many years and years. It came out in worked really well. It's relatively affordable and people. Just don't give a shit like when when you talk about. Vr on this show like see comments. You see you know you see people that like treated like we're talking about the fucking. We overs in their mobile games. Where they're just like can't believe they're talking about vr bribe. I'm rob like man. It's crazy that that is how this went down. But also i get it like honestly in terms of emerging immersion immersion right. You can't. I've talked about before like i can't fit that level of immersion into my life in a in a big way these days too much shit. Going on the practical hassles and inconveniences. Vr or pretty hard to overcome. Yes and that's it's crazy to say that but like vr. It's rad also. I don't know that. I recommend it to anyone. Especially as more and more people dig into the quest to stuff and have to go through the process of that being facebook product. And all the dumb fucking ways. Facebook has fucked that up now It's like even even a what should be a slam dunk situation of like. Here's this portable device. It runs the games right on it. So the space consideration is reduced because you can literally take it anywhere. Set it up wherever you got room. You don't have to run a cable from. Upc the you can if you want to do that like that should of ban it but then they layered it and weighed down with all this dumb facebook stuff that even fuck that up and.

"On. These things are gonna end up being proving to be relatively close. And maybe they'll do the key changes between them. I think you will see some around launch But some maybe take longer to manifest but Yeah i i don't know i don't know i don't have the technical know how to tell you if that if that statement from them is actually relevant in a real way or not our our games going to look different on the other kind of opening that door there to say like well. Ps five doesn't have this right. What is that right okay. And what the what. What does that mean. Because obviously sony made some different calls around hard drive speed and stuff like that You know like they. They came down on slightly different sides of a very similar coin right. Yes yeah you know. The missing detail here is the. Md announced their new graphics cards based on this same architecture last week and they turned out to be kind of better than anybody expected. But this is kind of microsoft getting out here and saying hey. We got parody with those new graphics that just got announced that are awesome. So where's those fall in terms of like you know. Are you getting one of these. Instead of thirty. Eight to two deep. Amd did put out some numbers in certain games in certain situations showing it being faster than thirty eight thirty ninety but like what are those certain situations stuff like if you look at the ground vandersloot. Look down hundred frames a second. I didn't look into too deeply. I think it's a lot of traditional rationalized games. Like i don't think they're out there with retracing numbers just yet. I think there is some word that like certain ray. Tracing games will not be those cards upfront until some more development work is done and stuff like that you know. Invidia has got a lot of other built in advantages like the deal s and get some of their other features. That are pretty robust at this point out of whatever we don't to graphics cards shootout here so much. But if invidia and amd's twitter accounts is it the same shit show just graphics cards not at all like at really the biggest response. I've seen to the into the dna two cards being last week. Was people going like fucking awesome now. Amd's competitive again like now. Prices are gonna go back down now have actual options to buy video card especially when i can't get a hold thirty eighty p on the pc. I just seem excited that there are multiple players in the graphics game again. What is driving that stuff but man just at the end of the day at the end of the day you play the same games on both rights not right you know. It's still a pc the hashing. The passionate is for the platform not for necessarilly like graphics cards in particular but while thinking about the xbox here capcom put up a little blog post about of cry five. Special edition was largely about preorder bonuses and the new modes and virgil the label. And all that stuff But they included a little tidbit at the end that the xbox series x version of the game. We'll have ray. Tracing the xbox series s will not but also that ray tracing is coming as a patch even for series x. They're saying it'll be available as downloadable title update maybe they'll be available at launch. But i don't they don't give a timing on that but right. Oh you're right yes. So is a little weird. Data's on that but you know like kind of shed some light on microsoft's saying like other run. The gay games differ resolutions like. Yeah okay. there's a little bit more. Yes obviously that is probably going to be at the developers to figure out on a case by case basis in some cases. It's going to be more than just while they're saying i think run one hundred twenty friends your second which that's still that's still on the s and the say both for that so it's not like the ass is complete piece of shit or something. Yes okay yes. I'm rereading this double check. Yes they say it will come to series x s with high.

I'm also not really into the. The photo shopping people have been doing to make the PS five look bigger in that dude's hand. And stuff. It's just like I.

A nightmare. It's been ninety plus degrees in every day was just all the fans on blowing nothing around the stale air that's in here. I still have not vacuumed up all the ash that blue in here last week. I. I started there still need to pull some like couches up from the wall and really get back there. It was snowing that was the level of ash that was falling. There's like a paste on my car now because I didn't clear the first round of Ash, and then like there was a little bit of moisture now, there's more ash. So there's like a thick layer of protective gunk on my car now. Yeah. Good. Looking at the bugs off. Have you. Acquainted with the The air quality, index. Airmail airmail dot Gov y'all got a book hurt. We were here. Now we were in the green for the first time last night briefly. It's nice.

I'm not a I'm not used to having multiple reasons to wish I had a box of in ninety five masks. Even, one is too many. Honestly. Yeah. I remember you have the one we got one. Three two years ago was the first big fires from the office they were. Yeah. Back back when those things were plentiful. Our company was straight up handing those out at the front desk when we had to commute but. Now. It's not so much apparently the there's also all sorts of like you wear that out and you have concerns you should actually cover. There's a there's a little valve on the front and you'd have to like make sure that is covered or else you're taking in the potential. It's just you gotTA double up now. Just, going on right now.

I think on Friday on the hot spots. Yeah. Have you had any updated check INS on Jacob make. My understanding is that all is well over there. I mean air quality issues. Aside, Petaluma is not really in the immediate danger zone of any of the current fires. So my parents while ready to go have not had to to vacate at this time. Therefore, Jake is still snug in his terrarium and they have not not left him behind. That's good. It makes me feel just a little bit better. Yeah. I bug out bag. Yeah. Yeah.

"Yeah I think you could say the same thing about like other platforms I know a bunch of people that are still prefer still prefers soundcloud as their. Place where they grab music and like. If someone were to leave and go to a different services, like well whatever I'll all of these other deejays instead. That void fills very quickly. Totally and there's no shortage of content in those sorts of spaces you know. It's the same type deal about people that get big on Youtube and then think like man. It sure would be nice if we could pivot into some kind of subscription service or pivot into some other kind of thing here and finding that like maybe their conversion rates are not what they thought they would. And I. Honestly I think that like seeing that happen is. One of the things that makes me only want to go so far with external services, as regards to do our stuff I mean. If we were full in on Youtube or full in on twitch or something like that. But actually with the nature of what we do. It probably Youtube in this example. We could reach more people that we reach right now. If we were one hundred percent, youtube focused, we could be than we are right now. There's also the potential that we could be bringing more money than we do right now. But. You, then are shooting any kind of external like like right now we get to run our own thing to a certain extent, and it gives a certain freedoms with the type of content. We can do and being able to be away from. Some of the content, the mess and not having to care about that stuff as much and. But that's because we from the beginning I think that's my I. Guess Discount, illustrate my point, the idea of like you know if you are you to first and then try to pivot. That's a lot harder than us. Being able to kind of put a toe in as much as we want. Like you know. It'd be nice. If we were bigger onto which it'd be great big on Youtube. But. All that is still in service of like? That only matters if it then leads to people kind of coming back to us and potentially signing up for. Our premium service like that's that's the business right so? So yeah, when platform like makes her shuts down, and those people scattered to the wind like yeah, it's it's a weird. It feels like a weird non opportunity of like now. To Mixer, that isn't getting paid out on. Some huge deal is left to fend for themselves to a certain extent and decide like do they want to? Take whatever. Olive Branch facebook gaming is going to give them. You see if they can maintain their. Which I honestly I'm not super optimistic about. Given the audiences I feel like the age range that we're talking about here. The I I'm not left with the impression that like the. Typical audience video game live streams and speaking also someone from experience. that. They want to be on facebook ever, yeah. Instagram at most. But even then these days I feel like that's you know. Instagram maybe isn't what it used to be either A. Super Tangential or far afield of this topic, but my my impression from keeping up with the tech presses. That facebook is facing kind of A. LONG-TERM, audience retention crisis right yeah. The attrition who? What new users are like waking up one morning like? All right time for me to sign up for facebook like that's not happening. Someone like fourteen year olds. Waking Up and all my friends are on facebook. It's like I need to be friends with my grandmother. Let's go to facebook like it's parents. Call your grandma totally. Yeah, paraphrase, twitter, joke! It's just buber's guzzling propaganda from Freedom Eagle or whatever right? Anyway whatever gets you foreign that register on facebook I'm still on Facebook I. Don't I should have I. The only thing that stopped me from from deactivating deleting account years ago was just the legacy of like what if I want to go back and read the? People wishing you happy birthday from seven years at some point or something I think for me. It's like we you know we. Technically have a page on facebook for whatever that's worth, and maybe we shouldn't. I don't know. and. And also, there are a handful of people that I. Don't keep up with any other way. Sure. There's that. Family members and that's there's there's little chunk of people that's like okay like they're not. They're not on twitter. They're not on some of these other. They're not going to send me a DM ON DISCORD There it's just not gonNA happen so. You know that that's kind of the only way to keep up with. A certain amount of family star, which honestly some of that stuff I should. Maybe also better off without I, don't y'all. Shot they're exposing themselves like. Maybe. I shouldn't have but I. Thought you were better than this. Anyway like. The bigger jeanine. The mixer thing is just like an extreme ministration of you know the. riskiness of pending all your hopes on the whims of Giant Corporation, right? Why Cuban you see you see the more stuff with like youtube changing the way that they're? I don't know. Where they're add monetization, works, Algorithm, stuff, or whatever like you see just like? And people in masks just like freaking out about their livelihoods, because somebody high up at a giant company made a decision to change something right. Exactly. Yeah, that's that's youtube once a week. I feel like there's just some different aspect of just like these. These videos are getting democratized Arwel, well and Youtube never quite. Even when they try to explain why they never quite explained why. So it out of the blue this was. Do you think they told like their major partners like a Ninja? Well, those guys probably within. Yeah, they. They probably had to be contractually contractually. They'd probably. But again, how many people's at its Ninja and shroud and?.

My wallet is a problem so i should probably get a new wallet residue off no wallet on fire. What would burn all the gunpowder off burrito. I was gonna say how do you think the britos figured into all of this well because they they saw that the broncos were stacked on a bunch of wires in my backpack shoved in their car and they pulled one of them out and like the t._s._a.
