"I've never had an interest in making wine but i do love talking about the science but i think you bring up a good point if i hadn't developed that interest through homeboy at the time i don't think into those events would have meant the same thing i would have gone to them with her. Okay we're hearing here is the whole thing. Yeah knowing been kind of like knowing the size. It's it's actually. Why moving more into baking like still beard. I go to beer events.

"Content Commercials Suck live streams for them because we're in a time now where a professional live stream cuz I'm pretty sure you guys are also doing the zoom calls, but I think the ones who want a more professional life stream. I'm actually producing that or producing that content. Whereas I have I don't know if you can see these pictures behind my wall where I've been or interviewed all of these great celebrities behind me off. That was cool. But my thing is what I saw last year or two years ago was there was a lack of attention for the small business customer and I think that the excuse me the small business owner and my thing was how do you help that small business owner and they need video production. They need to find a way to get their voice and get their messaging out to where people can put money back into their businesses. So they can continue to thrive the second part that I do and we've really have not done anything wrong in the last year because of one covid-19 to you know, we try to surround ourselves around attach ourselves with another organization, but I have a non-profit college network of stars Foundation. My mom passed away on New Year's Day of 2015 a good friend of mine was like, hey, man, you were always networking with people her name her biker name cuz she used to ride motorcycles. Star so we call it network of stars foundation and we teach entrepreneurship in networking with you. So that part of giving back that's what we're doing. But I'm not doing it for my athlete Prestige. I'm doing it problems at the ones who want to be in entertainment. So I come from a background of radio when I transition from sport into a rage when I left sport. I said what am I going to do with myself and radio wage thing that I wanted to do? And there's so many cool jobs in the entertainment industry that you can make a nice living whether it's being a makeup artist or being a DJ or you know, being a producer wage being a talent scout or PR person. So our thing was surrounding youth here in the Atlanta area and we would find a group of Youth that is all part of an organization and we would bring our nonprofit in surround ourselves with surround, you know attach ourselves to their organization and we would then say these job Kids, we're going to bring in our group of professionals to say this is what this is. These are the cool jobs that you can have cuz everybody wants to be that rapper or they want to be that long. Is it that band member but they're not understanding that you can be a manager, you know, you could be that makeup artists and you can make just you get to travel the world just like they do you think Beyonce don't have a team of people. Do you think, I don't have a team of people so the DJ I mean, you gotta think these travel he was Kris Kross is DJ and he was on tour with Michael Jackson song still lives off of that one moment. So so building relationships. That way we have to hopefully as cold as Dives down or hopefully will die quickly, but maybe we can pick that back up and twenty Twenty-One and if anybody's interested in following what I'm doing, boy. U s is the website I am tall boy on all my soul. Rules and YouTube if you want to see some of the celebrity content I try to entertain because a lot of these artists are in the Atlanta market and I've just been blessed from a wide-ranging jazz the R&B the gospel to wrap and influencers and politicians. I've been blessed to be able to surround myself around them. And I think a lot of it has to do with my life. So, you know, they're like dang he told his you know what, you know, like, oh my God, I'm in front of you know, and I think that's the cool thing to wear after that initial energy of fact, he's so tall and this is that celebrity it's over with we can now have a nice intellectual conversation. And that's where you see all these pieces that are on my wall behind me off, you know of the of the artist so that's what I did. Okay. I got in the way home. Yeah, that's right folks in in the music industry.

"No one to tell me about em, you know, you tell the truth you tell you I want to I want to talk about what you were saying about like like you said those classes are being taught for them to have financial literacy and have responsibilities as a brother in possibility. Yeah. His name is Dennis Kimbro exactly what Kevin Bracey does? Yes, so, I believe I believe that is true. And I don't know if I don't know if this lack of access from a lot of brothers cuz I made a brother in California hard to know from brother from Partners teaching that and I've been to the rookie Symposium several times in NFL. I know they teach those classes as well from from from probably I'm sure they do it in all the other professional sports. I'm not even just talking about just sports-wise as far as we need to know financial literacy from just for those guys as we would be instant millionaires. Now, we need to have it from also from a standpoint from the brothers just get ready to get that nine-to-five and and understand how to invest in the ira to be able to have that long-term money instead of going to buy that car and by that chain and go and go just to impress everybody. I think it needs to be something that's kind of more in routed to this and I do believe it needs to be at the high school level but my personal the only way to change that is if you make that a course requirement just like they suck you make it just like you have an intro to to the course. Like I think more house has a intro to Morehouse university. You know that you learn the anthem you age. Understand what Morehouse stands for and I'm only speaking on hbcus. I'm not sure on any other college but there's a mandatory course that you have to take. Well then now you have to suck. Well, let's make it a mandatory course for financial literacy, you know, so and that's what I hear you I hear you. I hear you. I'm thinking even before I'm thinking anything High School brother. I mean, I'm in college, but the problem is you have a high school is there's a curriculum that they have to stay on Pace with so that's why you hear they're taking the Arts out of the schools. That's why you hear that basketball or football programs are great. But when they start talking about we're going to pull these other programs because they know that those are their money making programs. They have a curriculum and I'll tell you from the cage through Middle School level. I know that for sure. They tell you I have friends that are teachers right now. I have to teach these core class. And any extra time that I have I can then probably instill some stuff into my kids, but I'm being judged as a as a teacher or as an educator until Thursday on math science English and and whatever the other the core classes. Yeah, the whole class judged on that and that only nobody cares about anything else. And so until you change that month. It's going to be hard because you're saying that that's nice to have but it's not considered a core class and because of lack, of course, I'm going to go for that. So that's brothers and sisters often do we think they should start to enforce that within the curriculum either either either as a as a smaller size or like or elective. That's a Betsy DeVos question. So, so let me and I love where this is and and I want to interject because I've got some History and some insight to this as you know, my wife is very involved with the administration of some local school districts here being being in her role and some school districts are starting to implement a requirement of having financial literacy, right that it's not standardized across the entire us or that that that's the best thing a question right there. But there are certain school districts across the country primarily. I can only speak for the ones up here in North California that I'm directly related to their is that a graduation requirement of knowing how to write a check knowing how to balance your your account knowing how to utilize those features and functions, right? So so that is there today in certain districts. But again, it's more the number of districts that are finding that time within the schedule to do it. Are they having school just a little bit earlier a little bit later. Unfortunately, are they cutting out some of the Arts and some of the Dead? Other types of scientists and some of the other activities unfortunately some of them are but they are starting to bring in those requirements of having some.

"Hey College ain't for everybody what I'm about to go over here to pick up a m b l and I'm going to play one year two years over here cuz you have to be one year removed from the NBA. I think for football yet to be three years three years. So, where are you going to play at from a dead? Collegiate football level you have to go to college cuz there's no other resources for you to go that it's a pharmacist. It's a pharmacist. If so to answer that question its you're in college and while you're in college, they're putting you in these courses and all your and your trust in the coast and say hey, I remember I told Coach I don't want to do study hall. He said you could you give me a 2.8. Then you don't have to do study hall. He set the bar too low. I came with a three point cuz we had our culture to say hey, I'm going to take these classes. You're going to keep your grades up. If fans are but no you can't work. You can't go can't go get a job because you have to keep your grades up but in America now, we don't have the money and exactly you don't have the money. So so for me how I was able to get around that and this was just me thinking outside of my my my line of work. I had did a summer job. My first year I came home. I was transitioning from Cal State Fullerton to the University of New Orleans that second year. I did an internship with Macy's. No not not an internship. I got a job security for Macy's at the mall and then something I don't know. There was an internship program with BellSouth and it's funny because you know, they talk about a fast access adsap. So from a tip perspective they had this ADSL program that they were trying to get it out here in Atlanta. And when I saw the amount of money, it was paying for an internship off to get into that program and when I get to that program that summer money was my money for the whole school year. So then it was like, oh Bell South is is giving out paid internships. Now the question is can you find a paid internship because you're talking about a black man. That's eighteen to Twenty-One years old looking for capital or looking for money wage. We can be able to buy some shoes so he can you know, take a girl out on a date so he can have some money, you know, some pocket change to deal with whatever you want to have to find him that money. James has a daughter that's fifteen years old. I was going to college she's not an athlete but she going to be in Daddy's pockets as soon as you go to college because she doesn't have that job per se but Daddy got it. We didn't have that when we were in college. So we had to find a way and I ain't trying to be the broke brother cuz the cistern ain't trying to holler at you. If you ain't got.

"There's trainings their symmetry now, if you come from that from that mentality of I never had nothing and you get your first job Check of residence. And your first check is $250,000 as your first check. Yeah, the first thing you going to do is want to go out and buy the watch by the jury. Yeah that by by your mom I get all of that and and and then all of a sudden as they say, I forgot who who the athlete was and I forgot who the rapper was but it's a never-ending cycle. They all say the same thing. I had to put my boys on payroll. Well now like I think it was Paul Peirce. He says every time we went to a city it was eight of us. That means I had to pay for eight dinners. I had to pay for eight vehicles. I had to pay for it off when that check slows up such as a pandemic of what we're in now. Guess what that hey do I really need you on payroll? What am I bringing you along on this trip for what what she went value. Are you bringing you? Look at it LeBron James. He has everybody on payroll and whatever that payroll is not all I'm taking care of my boys and I'm paying real job. You know, you have a job. To do and once you do that job, you get paid accordingly for whatever that that market calls for as opposed to MC Hammer back in the day. He put everybody on payroll off now with his time is up. He took care of the neighborhood, but he didn't take care of him know and I agree. I agree to a certain extent. I do believe you're right. You said there's no excuse. I do believe I don't believe there's any excuse but still the message isn't being transcends the board because we're not doing that. We still have too many percentages that are not so either the message needs to keep being hammered home or we need to be figure out different way for them to learn because it's not all happiness Sports happens in in all those all those fascist. It's just that we have some what we're getting that back in the beginning but the bag in the end, there's not they're not holding on to it. And I know that's the financial literacy portion of it, but I need also he was also just investing this ourselves in our internet properly. We're being monetized off of a lot and we're not getting out we're not getting what we're being monetized for for that much and I just talked about in sports. I'm talking about in the real world as well. We have too many pop-up shops with t-shirts home. Be able to own clothing stores. We have too many we have too many, I believe are you are you at I think that's a great Hustle but I don't see no reason why we can't have we can't own a manufacturing part. Why can't we do offer already inside doing it your videographer. You also a lot of your content and Other Self know. Oh, you're conscious of people don't you two bones are content. Let's see if I tell it goes It goes down, you know, you have to take a step back because if you know teach young people financial literacy and Murphy asked asked a lot of people a lot of kids in high school and early college if they know how to write a check a lot of them will say no, but they know how to use cash cash app. Yeah, but that's my point. That's what that's my point. You're I'm getting to the same point. We need to invest in our own intellectual property or off or intellect investment and all those things when you enormously somebody you gotta go back go back and teach them early because at age of Twenty-One blackjack 12223 you can tell me a whole lot because I think I thought I knew it right. But if you don't call me at twelve thirteen fourteen years old and it's saying okay. How long have you have, you know a hundred thousand dollars. What's the best way for you to make more money? Because what happens is that we're too quick to get the money and we're too quick to say I can't wait ten years for this money to mature. I want it now or I'll take it now and I'll do something later with it, but we know later is never going to come so and so when you do you teach them financial literacy how to balance a checkbook don't look at Cash app, you know be able to able to manage your own money and how you manage that that money because we got a lot of entertainers athletes in in trouble. They let somebody else manage their money and they don't they just know they got money and so all they're doing is right checks and swiping swipe swipe swipe, right? So athletes needs to be dead. Able to do that and and still be able to have their dreams, you know, they still have to go to school and high school even after college when they're in college. You need to take those courses of someone off like, um, you know, as a motivational speaker Kevin one of the things that Kevin can do as he's talking to them and talk to them about, you know, financial literacy, but they've offered though those Court there's a Dennis Kimbro and Clark Atlanta he teaches that that he teaches a course, but I'm telling you what I mean, but when we sent all these kids allowed know, let's see here. Here's the here's there's a bigger picture on that. That's because when the parents aren't comfortable with those conversations and teaching them they're not comfortable with sitting down with their kids. So their kids aren't going to get some of that their kids not going to know so when we sit down and talk to them they kind of push back because first thing that we're taught as young people is if we look at our place But some guys if my parents can't help me or her parents don't care. I'm not going to really care and I'm not saying that all parents are like that. But when you have some of those who aren't comfortable with finances who are comfortable with writing letters who are comfortable with getting out and speaking you tend not to take your kids in those environments but what I'm saying, but what I'm saying is when you get to college and this and this is a deeper rooted issue than that than me because I don't know if this was for you as a track or maybe the football player they put me in cookie cutter classes in the beginning and then when I showed that I could actually handle, you know taking better classes back then or I said I'm signing up with this class myself then it was why did you do that? Because we have practice during this time and it was like, well, this is the class that I need to take that's on you to want to be able to say I'm dead. I want to get my degree you have a lot of athletes that are just saying I'm just only here to you know, do whatever it takes to so I can play ball. Look at Ben Simmons. He went to LSU came in from Australia went to LSU for 1 year. He had no intentions of going to school. He was there just for that one semester played that first and I think he would he would didn't even play the second half cuz he could Emily ineligible any became the number one of the number two pick in the NBA. So I mean he already had that mindset that he wasn't there to go to school, but he had to go to college route because playing ball over seas was not as popular at that time when he came out eight years ago as opposed to what it is. Now when you're seeing With The Ball Brothers saying.

"So for me when I was coming in track and field at the time you could make money. Okay. So once you're done with college or if you run, you know, you know unattached you do that for fun because you love the sport cuz you could not make money at the time. You just started making money until I think the late eighties but we have to also think about what's our next level. Okay, and so for me sociology, was it because that helped me understand myself groups of people my community, but I tripped over and fell into it. And plus thinking about you know, what's my next step because Athletics it's just not going to be that you have to teach young people to talk about those things because some of them get hurt and they're devastated and when they get devastated they shut down, you know my tell, you know, an athlete get hurt and he is no longer able to get back to the status of that. He was physically mentally and emotionally terrorism down. Okay. So being an athlete is fine and great. But what's your next step if you don't make it into that so that's why we have to push education rather is either going to college. It's going to a trade school, you know, you know some type of motivation and we have to talk to young people about doing that. Otherwise, we're setting them up to fail. And so if they don't have a passion like like Kevin Kevin has a passes he took a passion he wants to motivate he has that so he found that for him, but what about all of those who not sure of quite do for me when I was in school. I don't know what I want to do. I had no passion on anything other than hanging out so, you know to help them transition from high school to being a productive citizen to go on a college or even trying to go into the major league. This is one of those things that they need to do. They can have their dream to try to obtain their dream, but they also need to be able to have the know all to say, how do I reschedule? Virtual company, how do I research the money that I want to do? I want to be an Entertainer. You know, how do I research to do on that? Because what we found a lot of them research is talking to the boy next door or you know, or somebody who said that they've been in the program they've been doing that. So my research is saying I'm going to do what he did. He did it. He didn't have to do it. You know, one of the things that someone had always said that we hear every year. We'll Bill Gates see him. He didn't go to college. She didn't graduate, you know, we say but one of the things that he done he kept in his industry. She kept learning he took all the classes and drained so I've been an it for forty years, you know, and I work now I work for the state and you know James and I met a Hewlett-Packard, you know, but now I work at the stage as an analyst, but I'm still using that to Mentor young man, you know from a mentor to young man from sex States and some other young man's in your early on. How do you age Spots with the police. How do you respond to somebody in the interview? You know interviewing skills. Those are the court. Those are some of the Court things that they're going to need as an athlete because if you don't be interviewed gotta know how to speak, you know have to stop saying, you know, you feel me those two type of thing, you know? Yeah, I believe I believe what you're saying you teach them skills those life skills. They need to be in the community and whatnot. But I want to I want to comment on something. You said that I thought was it kind of struck me. We do need to invest in our intellectual our own individual actual property went by educating ourselves. Like you said by learning to trade or skill. I don't I hate the imagery that we have that we have in our communities. Sometimes it's very it's sometimes it's very negative and it's not very influential but I do believe this is black people in the generationals. We need to start to invest in our own intellectual intellectual property goes off. To say that I think that a lot of these young kids they want to be entertainers or musicians rappers or whatever. You want to call it. You know, they're this new generation Travis Porter post. I think that they are saying you know what I'm not going to give up my content as easily as maybe the SW v's and off the TLC back in the day this new generation is saying hey I can do this myself. I don't really need the bag from you per say now as opposed to back in the day. It was if you got a re-contract. I'm agree with you 1% Yeah. Yeah and how they got messed over. No one ever really explained that game from the late 80s 2222 2013. No one explained the game then when Travis Porter came out. It was like Hey, we're going to do our own thing and our time is now and we're not waiting for anybody argue with you for Thursday. We did at first but you right now the new generation is learning. No, no, no. No, they did do it first but the thing is they never shared that information with anybody. They just did it for the money. And and when they did it for themselves, they got the bag, but it was never that was never passed down to say ownership ownership owner of best. They can imagine. Yeah exactly. That's good. So but I'm thinking I'm even thinking more so cuz you're right it has transfer transcended in the music industry and learning that trade but I don't think it's transgender this as a whole even in even in athletics Sports. We still have professional athletes that go into the league and they come out they're coming out broke, you know with the bad financial management, but that's their fault though because in all honesty anybody that made in the professional level there's classes..

"The and the lady was introducing me and when she was introduced to me, it felt like dead. bottom of the nights runner on second and third two outs is my time at the plate. That's what it felt. Like once I was done delivering the speech. It felt like I hit a double in the gas to win the game. And in that moment. I knew that speaking was going to feel that competitive void of playing baseball and I put the the determination off the work ethic the focus and it took me sixteen years of trying to build my name and reputation locally to break through in the industry before the internet sixteen years of hustle sixteen years of focus in that 16th year a district saw my talent and it one day in one sitting at a school district. I booked up but no exaggeration. I'm not bragging a hundred dates in one day and that that means I'm going to speak at every one of their schools multiple times that year and that changed the course wage. Trajectory of my speaking business and here I am twenty-three years later still doing what I love to do. So young people watching this as an athlete you have some skills that are transferable that nobody else has so listen to what these brothers are teaching you because this is what it's all about that you go. Paul Boy song You Baby equipment to two things. I would love to definitely connect with you offline. Yes wage, but at the Toastmasters, who was that core audience, you know, what they were all older. They were all white. They were all older than me that was different generation and I was in there or been fired it was like who was I didn't I was doing know I was just talking and then probably come a couple of cuss words came out because I was wasn't polished them yet, you know, I mean baseball field but it was about fifteen or sixteen people that were most of them were older than me and a couple of generations older than me and they just were a audience that poured into me. Yep. Sent to me taught me the game loved on me and I I took off from Toastmasters gotcha. So I say that because I was watching a peace because I did some of the similar stuff you did back when I was at the radio station and I got pushed back here in Atlanta and I say that because I came into the school system and did something similar and like you said a feeling that felt like I hit that game-winning shot got that you know that game-winning dunk and then it was how do you grow from there? How do you take it to the next level and you've been doing it for years on top of years on top of years and you're not seeing you you're not seeing the results the results of that taking off by something that Eric Thomas said I was watching a video that he had said something about I don't go to African American schools. I go to the white schools that have a small population of African-Americans, but I'm out here motivating them a wage. Would help Propel him get to that next level and I wanted to pick your brain on there. And like I said, hopefully and I think for Me in Montana, if you could bring back that question for me bunch of what you had asked as Kevin. I think the biggest issue that you have is find like you said, I think athletes their top confident we're we're taught that there's no such thing as losing cuz all we know how to do is win. Now, you have to learn how to channel that win to say. You gotta what they always say you can win the game you can win the war you can win the battle but you're not going to win that on or around that for you and see to me. I feel like I have to win every battle. Yeah, and I have to win every war and it's just me and my girlfriend and tell you all day. She's like he got a win everything but that stay competitive spirit that I have. Yes, I don't take Hills. So now off. I'm getting older and it's like how do you learn and how do you transition because I have this confidence that ain't nobody Virgil is not going to beat me at right in the in this livestream have in the Sprinter, but they said I ran like a deer so I'm going to get.

"To learn from us. I want to learn from a man that's older than me that that's the same color as my skin because I can relate to him. I want to learn from a young lady the same comes my schedule cuz I can relate to them. They can understand my struggle my differences that I've been I'll go through I think and I think people that people other young people can relate to that as well. So just food for thought man. I really and you all Brothers is very intelligent you guys all know. How may I see the things Mister MC is my man talk about his hand on his mouth. He thinking you know, so I'm really I really like to get some perspectives on the time you gotta shoot that question to me a couple of days before so I'm a little research and we know the block. Okay, we came making sure we save that until June. Wanted to get that reaction. Yeah, cuz I mean I'm being be honest with you. I mean with the like again like with us being such a large economy and we give so much to this state not only just financially but wage. But culturally we give so much to the state of California, you know as a Black Culture as a brown culture. I don't understand why I'm trying I'm having a hard time understanding why they're not embracing this to allow us to educate themselves ourselves. Why haven't they they're not giving us a platform or a space in the state of California? Well, we can send our kids to go be around us. You know, I don't want my kid. My kids shouldn't our kids live in the middle class cuz you know, we've all make us some money doing good. Our kids shouldn't be afraid to be around other people when they're in, you know, cuz they're in a different a different economic situation, right? You know, they shouldn't be fearful that because when you go to that college or you going to have that we're all on the same level right? You can be rich or poor you still in the dorm room, right, you know, but we can learn from each other. We don't have that platform. We still have the divisiveness. I believe in in that situation so Best best to me that to me would be a huge investment in our culture a huge investment in our people if we could have something like that on on the west coast whether it be a Clark Atlanta, California or whether it be a Howard California does have to be something that's brand new maybe something that we branched off and they bring it over here Tom Watson, you smiling me what you got what you got going over there. Oh man. I mean, I just think at the end of them. They I think you got and this is not to be the the the elephant in the room at this think that black people one were not trusted with money quote on quote when it comes to certain things and I think it's who would be in charge who has the capital. And then can we get everyone to come together? It's no different from the new bank. That just came about with the Greenwood big here in Atlanta. And it's like, you know, you have a a new a new bank. And you know, how is that really going to look moving forward now that we have a a black-owned bank? That's a digital Bank. Shall we say, there's no difference this like who's going to be in charge of that right now hbcus are already struggling and they're asking for money from the federal government. Whereas a lot of these predominantly white institutions. I think they call them pwi's from my understanding. They did not they have that strong alumni where they pour back into it. And my thing is the cap is all about capital. And and do you trust me if you give me a two million dollars start and then somebody else gets me another 2 million. Am I going to funnel that into creating? Look at? Dr. Umar Johnson? No disrespect. To him, but where's that school that he said that he was going to break that he was going to build. So now you asking other people to put up money. They want to know that that money is going to go to where they to the resources that they say they're going to go to and I think that's what's holding you up for the the question that you're asking a biggie right? There is a financial financial responsibility and birth to bring it out here, but I truly believe I mean, you know, smarter smarter Minds Prevail and I'm not saying maybe start from the scratch. Like I said, why aren't we taking a blue from the Howard or Grambling or Southern and saying you know what they can have that as a West Coast even though that is more of an investment because they are they willing to share it off you're throwing it out there. So I'm just saying I'm thinking or or one of these other colleges be willing to share and say, you know, what we're going to do a branch when they're already struggling financially dead. Well, I would say I would say possibly not right now, but I'm saying right now in the state. We're in state of California in the state of mind. We are with with the black moving right now. Why is that even even being entertained and money and money that can be privately funded doesn't just have to come there. We have enough Millionaires and billionaires in the state of California that I think we can tap into that and that are in the entertainment in the high-tech world of that to see if they can bring that up but there's never even frustrated presented in front of them. There is nothing to invest in if it's not even there I'm speaking on the idea like now Beyond just the financial aspect what else is holding us back and and I like the dialogue 12 or so. We thought we can go. I think we need to figure out what why can it not be presented. Why should I be standing in front of the body? Yeah. So let's let me interject because I.

"They had talked to my coach. They talked to that athletic director. They talked to the principal. They talked to two of my teachers. They called my dad from the time. I left the Cobo Hall to the time I got the Lansing and my dad when I got home. He says you can't leave home. That's a Friday and Lansing Michigan. You trying to hit them streets when you said five fifteen years old you waiting on this coach to call and at that time. It was Frankie Alan the legendary Frankie Alan and it was like I'm waiting on him to call cuz I'm mad cuz I'm ready to go run these streets with my boys and I came back. And the first thing he says is have you ever heard of TSU and I'm like no, he's a Tennessee and his words and I quote TSU is a fine University. I was seventeen to 1:17 to 1 and what female to me? Oh I'm going that was my project. I said book the ticket. I'm going so I got the phone. I called my dad and mom dad. I'm not going Cal State Fullerton. He said why not say cuz Tennessee State got a ratio 17 one. He said that's the only reason why you want to go you ain't going there. He's I'm not important, but I'm going to TSU and he said no you're not he's dead. Call Coach spoiler coach filters stayed on the phone with me for 2 hours and said you're a man of your word right you gave me your word you made this commitment, right and that's kind of where how I am today. If I look in the eye and I tell you something that was a Learning lesson at that time for me. But and I and it still holds to this day. If I tell you I'm going to do something. I do it. If I can't then I would be man enough to you. And I think that was my first lesson. As far as me learning that that's what it I mean, if you make a commitment see it through now, you might not might have to go back to piggyback or the circle back to what you were saying. The schools I mean no disrespect to my degree, but I never had to use my degree in the job or the line of feel that I meant, you know, I try to go into law enforcement that would have been great. If I would have tried to go in the medical field that would have been great. But I never went you don't need a degree to be a videographer. You don't need a degree to be an interviewer you you don't need em, but they do need HVAC they do need Plumbing. They do need electrical but you got to pick up that trade and when you think about the people that go to trade schools they make way more money than God bless you work for the Department of Education or you're an engineer or something like that. So I think that us as African-Americans they need to really identify what it is that they want to do and become their own bosses as opposed to necessarily saying I went to college in my humble opinion college is only this is my opinion. It's only there two Network. That's it. It's all about me meeting. You you and you and then how can we utilize our strengths together to help each other get to the next level or bring somebody else up now? That's my thought process on what I think college is all about and I greet you certain certain aspect go ahead construction. I'm going to go into something like construction. Okay. So, you know, I kind of agree with you on some of that if off track and field wasn't a sports wasn't in my in my future one of the things that my schools were doing was advertising wage trade trade school. And before I actually went to Long Beach City College L A Trade Tech is where I was thinking about going because I wanted to be an x-ray technician and so, you know H bag x-ray tag, you know Plumbing Heating and are those are those are things that we were told we need to do wage. Cuz very often and I don't know about you guys when I was young all I heard was you're good at your hands work with your hands, you know, they didn't encourage us to go to school. They didn't encourage just to really think and use our brains, right? And first thing I was thinking, okay, I'll go do a trade or Sports. What sports got me in college, you know that was never in my in my future in my opinion, you know, but it got me in college but going to a trade would have been helpful for me because I wanted to be a technician because I know I can go and work with the sport teams, you know, so that was my whole idea on that and then which talking about colleges we didn't have college fairs in my home and my high school, you know, I never heard of an HBCU until I got from San Jose State, you know, so we they didn't talk to us about that at least in my school. We never had any of those type of dog. But it was more of talking to others networking with people, you know, for those who are outside of our community. You know me. My biggest thing was to stay out of the banks stay away from the games. And that's why my dad kept me at the gym, you know, taught me how to protect myself but I wanted something else and I didn't know what that was. But then once the track and field got out of Los Angeles in A Whole New World opened up for me exactly. That's kind of where I was going like with the with the mechanism part that mechanism that attracts you I'm a kind of transition to something special for you can before you have to leave. I know your time is oppressed. So with that being said are all week all of us from California are all reside in California right now, or I'm about to ask you there. I live in Atlanta. I live in the only one that went to California and y'all suck. But okay, so being being from California and like I said that mechanism that they've been taken away from us. I was talking to James before before this whole thing last week. Why is there not a HBCU in the state of California? Wow, because we have everything. Every mechanism that should be HBCU we have the history. We have the culture. We have the dynamic culture. We have every we should have the money given to us as a black community to be able to have that kind of institution each of those people that do want to go to school. We should be able to have a self-fulfilling place where we can teach our own have our own have the black college experience which is different from Mortal white college. Everybody knows each different experiences, they're positive or negative. However, you may feel it. But why do we not have that in the state of California? How can we have not as a community or those people as coaches as administrators, press that issue at all took us to have that kind of mechanism for us to attract our youth because we know we're we're losing a lot here in California, especially young men were losing those those guys a lot to whether it be the system to whether it be the streets to where they're be just cheese opportunity. I would I would love to be able to hear you guys as opinion. Why would why how come we don't have it as of right now why we don't have it right now and I can we get to that point. I think the farthest and and don't quote me on this. I think the part of this HBCU is either Texas or Oklahoma bombing got Langston in Oklahoma got Texas college in Texas and both of those are very very small..

"And actually you taught me more about people than I have learned kind of on edge all hanging out with my friends cuz a lot of my friends really didn't have any directions they were just kind of there and I wanted to leave our way. I loved l a I grew up out there but I didn't want to stay in LA and San Jose State was my ticket to go. I didn't know how it was going happened, but that was my ticket to go out there and I'm glad I did because I think that was probably the best decision I made Because I don't know what will happen to me if I stayed in Los Angeles, so that's kind of my first story. That's that's that's great. And I like everybody's in divorce story because it's different and I'll go mine real short mine's is different. I went to I went to go ahead and I played it humble state division 2 football at the time when I was small super small. I was a little guy took 5916 T, but I could play football. I hit and that that was a school that really they were very persistent with me. So they recruited me. I got a letter about other schools. I got interest from a lot of other schools, but humble really pursue me, and and I landed there probably wants a great experience probably ever had in my life because I was able to get away from Sacramento and I was able to grow like a man down here and all you guys are stories. Are you guys want division one? I want D to but this is what I want to I want you guys to think about what you'd upon it. I want to kind of say leg went into this each mechanism that took you guys to school or home. An ism that attracted to those schools was all similar to us as a sport. Right. So the basketball baseball for Kevin track track for you. Mister Torrance me football now want you to imagine something that mechanism is cut off. Would you go to that school now being recruited not somebody come and talk calling you anymore? No, no nobody talking to you about it. Would you go to New Orleans? Would you go to Utah would you go to San Jose State wage to Humboldt if they never ever contacted us or never had that mechanism. They're attracted to that school. My quick answer is no cuz I didn't even know you existed Minds know to I would have never went. What about you Mister Mister. Oh boy. Would you live in new? I never heard. I never heard of off lately. What I said and and University of New Orleans. It was who you know, you know, like wage know you and know and if you say uno I get mad and you say you know for this is in fact, no no I'm saying so absolutely absolutely. Oh, so no, I never heard of San Jose stayed. I didn't know where San Jose was. The only thing I'm in California, I knew was Oakland and San Francisco. I know anything else in between there outside of Bakersfield and Fresno got it. So I wouldn't I want to khong Closing so so I'm I'm leading to that. I'm leaving that that part of discussion because as we know I think I think this is African American men, especially in the state of California. There's Ben mechanisms taken away from us to attract us to schools and most predominately has been Sports, you know, I mean in particular have a passionate about because it's full ball. They could football out from a lot of the division two programs just like they're cutting programs now, actually they'll just cut their football program. I believe there's some other division one programs that our staff is talking about cutting some of their programs as well those mechanisms that attract us to go to these schools outside of anything else is now are being cut and I'm five and a hard time myself babbling how the fourth largest economy in the world. Which our state schools cannot afford cannot cannot fund these programs to keep that mechanism going to attract us to those schools because as we all know all of our dreams will become Pro whenever we want to be the professional be the best edit either go to Olympics play NBA play Major League Baseball play NFL football, but when we did make that we became Pro something else Kevin's a motivational speaker and he's dominated life coach towards your coach and your I'm pretty good Dynamic table. I'm sure your dynamic in what you're doing and I'm an analyst at a at a fortune five hundred company, but those mechanisms now are no longer there for the next Generation. They're not there for jobs anymore, you know or certain sports are not there anymore. So in my humble opinion and I may be wrong about this, but I don't think that college is really for everybody. I think that they need to really pick up a trade because we as African-Americans if you don't play that good old boy system with them then what job are you going to get? But yep? You know how many I grant you the college is not for everybody. The opportunity to go to college is for everybody to be there. Well, send me off but then when you go yeah, that's a good that's if you want to go. Well, yes. Like I said, my dream College was FAMU, so I wasn't trying to go to FAMU to go play basketball. I just wanted to go to fam but me being up in Michigan. I was going to have to find a way to get there. And like I said the funny story about family you as they have the black college fair in Detroit and not go down the Cobo Hall and all the hbcus all come and I with every year stand in line for FAMU and I got disrespected my senior year and it was like, I'm not going to this school, you know, it was I stood in line my sophomore Junior and Senior year and they said Oh, come back next year old come back next year that senior year. I came back with letters of regiment letters of recommendation. And I am a resume. I had everything lined up waited in line patiently the man took my paperwork and he threw it on the desk and said okay, he saw a pretty girl right behind me or whatever and he wanted to talk to her. So me I went to go sit in the corner. And when I sat in the corner the TSU representative from Tennessee State saw me and said hey, why are you sitting in the back on the came here for one school? And she said what school was that? I said TSU. I mean, excuse me family and she says can I see your paperwork? I showed her my substitute. This is really impressive and she would you mind filling out the application. I'm going to I'm going to waive all your fees. What say you do whatever you want. I'm not coming to you by the time I already knew that I had a Cal State Fullerton scholarships. I wasn't trying to be pushy or anything like that when I left Detroit and got back to Lansing No Lie, they.

"He was a boxer he still training now, you know five times World Boxing Hall of Fame and I didn't want to suck and so I play baseball. So by the time I got the high schools, you know, some France was going to play try out for football. They all Play Pop Warner football. I never played. And I went there because I didn't want to box only time I went to the gym is you know, go clean up and hang out and that's where my dad kept me off the streets but boxing just wasn't one of those things off. So I learn that I can run I can hang out with you know with the with the older guys and run with them. And so and I got my high school. I started running track and she caught me a little bit out of my shell, you know, I was very quiet and shy but it got me a little attention and then I was able to travel a little bit to other schools and kind of see little things outside of my bubble. So, you know, I ran track in high school and did very well and then College this was contacted me, you know to come to school and I didn't want to go to college but my dad told me you go to college get a job will go to the military. Well, I didn't want to go to the military. I don't know what I want to do for a job, you know, cuz I wasn't interested in much. So I decided to see if I can go around track and then Long Beach City College was building their teams and they called me over to come in and run with them. And so he told me off till you decide what you want to do start your education and come run with with us because I didn't really know how those things would have worked because I want a city championships. So everybody was contacting me to come and play football and run track and I didn't quite understand, you know didn't really have a mentor to kind of tell me about this and when I was in high school coaches just was concerned about winning. The Championships that was about it. And you know when I went to high school this was back in seventy seventy eight seventy-seven seventy-eight didn't really care much about you long as she was an athlete and you were doing some good things. So track and field got me to Long Beach and then, you know, after two years of that I started to get letters and notifications and you know, we travel, you know, people were taking me around but USC and UCLA was the two schools. I wanted to attend I went to all the USC football games and all that UCLA basketball games. So I want to go to those two schools, but the problem is is that Sprinters at the time was a dime a dozen. Everybody has sprinters and everybody wants to be a sprinter's and they wanted hurdlers, you know, four hundred meter Runners and and I was a decent four hundred meter Runner, but I was dead primarily a true Sprinter. So long story short colleges was coming to the house talking to my parents Kansas brought me out to the exam pist and was willing to give me a full ride and it was beautiful campus. You know, Cory, they had the girls out there. It was awful nice out there, you know, enjoy myself until I ask how cold he got the know let me take let me let me start that over they show me they're indoor track and I don't understand. Why do you have it indoor track? Okay, but remember I never left California. I've always been in California. So you didn't need indoor stuff outside of the you know, the indoor meets wage. And it's all gets so cold sometimes, you know, you you know, you can't go out and run. That's what we'll how cold does it get? Oh, oh no thirteen to Fifteen below zero and I decided to know it's not where I wanted to go. USC was offered me, you know partial scholarship USC was offering partial my parents just you know, we just don't have the money for that. And then San Jose State popped up out of the blue and they I think they came out to LA like six or seven times. And then when they say it will give you a full-ride. You don't have to pay for anything. That's what got me to San Jose and as you know, and as I started running, you know using my training I got from Long Beach cuz I think long City gave me the best training I've ever had, you know, we did a whole bunch of other things so that had my mentality to say track and field is it so I I learned they're not only affects how to how to study in school and stay in school keep my grades up but it also learned me taught me to be competitive. And so when I came to San Jose State, you know, it was a little intimidating because they were known as speed City and you know, all the greats went to San Jose State. So, you know, I was still kind of learning about running and how how you know to hang with everyone else. So I had a good year a good couple of years of San Jose State and you know, really enjoy my college life. From you know, the junior college level to the university level and so track and field, you know, that was been been in my blood is in my blood now. I'll sit and watch it all day. Even the walk racing. I'll sit and watch walk walk racing. My wife don't understand why I sit I was going to sit there all day. So, you know that kind of set off the the basis for me with sports and.

"Did you have after the graduation you got your family all come over all that was all in the same day. So just imagine how big of a day it was coach calls me on July 9th and said Happy Birthday. You're now Cal State Fullerton Titans. Let's go. I couldn't even fifteen sixteen. So I just could not get that Seventeen. I just cannot get and he finally called me two days before my birthday and said you're now officially a Cal State Fullerton Titan. That was one of the happiest moments of my life. You thinking Seventeen about the term eighteen? I was headed to California, you know, the old saying your parents are you gotta get out of your house when you turn eighteen so that Friday my best friend takes me to a strip club in Lake Jackson wiegold. I ended up leaving that strip club going to Toronto to play in the All-Star game. And then after that All-Star game, I was on a flight to California that month. So some in my in my journey started there. I've never shared this story with anybody. So this is some exclusive content James. I got caught up in a gambling situation and Cal State Fullerton with somebody offered me some money to throw a game and I did the right thing. I told the coach it made front page of the LA Times the Orange County Register all of that and here I was offered some money and you know me not knowing the situation right the coach kind of, you know, people were the media was knocking on my door Cody and I I didn't know how to handle it and I told the coach the situation and instead of I was a freshman starting. And I would a true freshman starting so they would I had went out there they were going to Redshirt me, but I had excelled so well that they allow me to start or I had learned that chance to start and then here I was getting playing time and then when that gambling situation happened he bench me and to me I just told him I said, you know, that's it. I'm out and when I did my project to go to the University of New Orleans as I was looking at my next I said, I'm going to get all five of the schools in the University there that shows as corny as this may sound crazy choosing New Orleans because I was on a plane with Master P and I wanted to get did you not want to play Master P. I got the hookup had just came out and I had my my idol. I had my first tattoo with the No Limit Tank. Come on my first tattoo and here I'm on the plane with Master P and he's like, why don't you go to LSU? Why don't you go check out? Suno or Southern and how about I only know you want to know because my assistant coach at Cal State Fullerton is here and because he's here I'm going to go, you know, see what he's all about money. He gives me his number and the next day on my visit. He says I said, can I call Master P. I got this number I call it says No Limit Studios. I said, my name is Corey Saint Louise. I'm looking to speak Master P. They said oh, he's been waiting on your call. He gets on the phone and he says I'm having a limo to come pick you up up at Lakefront Arena. I said, hold on. Let me ask the coach. It's okay. The coach says what I really wanted to spend some time with you and I knew I was out there on a business trip. So I had to tell Master P which I think that worst move that I ever did but I told Burt thank you for the opportunity, but I came out here on some business and I need I need to understand and get to know this culture especially about used to come out here and Ed. That weekend was Silkk the Shocker his graduation party and so they were really they turned the city up and I'm I missed out because I went to go do a visit now the coach took me to the Saints practice facility to meet Ricky Williams. Who was the biggest thing at that time and I got a chance to meet Mike Victor, but I didn't care about football. I wanted to be with Master P. So so I ended up going with University of New Orleans and and I did that because of the relationship that he acted like he cares. Whereas the coach over at Cal State Fullerton did not the coach that recruited me off our last game of the season. He told he got me in his car cuz you know, you can't ride in the vehicles with the coaches. He put me in the story cuz I'm going to take you home. He says I'mma tell you this she says I'm not come back to Cal State Fullerton next year and he says I only came back this year because you reminded me a lot of me and I felt like you needed one year of me grooming you and with that being said On that coming back. I think you have your wings this time for you to grow and I say if you're not here, I'm not here and that was what transitioned me to go over to the University of New Orleans so long. Wow, that's amazing. How about you Mister Lawrence? What attracted you to school a couple of events one of the things that baseball was my sport I played baseball from the time I was in the third grade off until the time I graduated from high school But I grew up in the box and the environment my dad's a boxing trainer..

"In a particular Sports just to really show the audience the depth and the breadth and the region in terms of what we're going to be talking about today and down the the experiences that we have, right? We got football here. We got track we got baseball so we cover all the main sports for the most part. But but now on tell if you get kind of lead that discussion in terms of you know kind of the fact that we wanted to get over and hey, absolutely absolutely. So I want to talk about first like what first attracted you to go into that school with the particular school that you went and had an attendant. That's number one. And then let's talk about some of the the the the the support mechanism or lack of support mechanisms. We had when we were at school because some of us did go out of state when other went to different places different regions of the country, which you know, those those, you know, the smoke poured naked in front of coming from California is a lot different is that support as a black man a really different going to those universities. So I want to kind of focus on that part and then we'll just had the conversation kind of cater to where it wants to go. So Kevin want to try did you this long? Which you my man, you know for me what attracted me to Utah was was I was one of those guys who who who I didn't have all the talent. I was never met the best player on any team that I played on Ever from Pinto baseball to to t-ball the Bronco to high school to college, but I was the hardest worker on every game was on so I was playing like the name of my book back here and I'm not just here to promote the book but it's called scared great because I played scared I did everything scared because I did not because I watch baseball to take me where my dreams in my vision. I had played baseball through at the big league level, but after makes it very high school. I got a baseball scholarship to the University of Pacific but I didn't have the same confidence academically that I had athletically right. So so imagine that already didn't have confidence athletically as much as I should have and academically I had even less than that. So what I tricky sap To take that scholarship to UOP. I didn't score high enough on the SAT. So I ended up going to American River College a community college as a detour. So at ARC when I first got their coach Hagins redshirted wage because I needed to grow and I needed to get stronger and all the things that go along with being a Rancher but to me in my head. It was like I got cut so I had a fork in the road decision would make you go keep going to practice every day just to show Coach Thursday when the time comes around you're serious about it, or you going to go play Nintendo and chase girls. I'm currently at both be honest with you, but I went to practice every single day. So I ended up making the team in the next year or two years at American River College graduated and for me, it's probably different than anybody else on you. I had one school offered me one school who wanted me and I'm representing the University of Utah. So that was what attracted me when they took me out yet all went on my tour and Ed. And we hung out and I was like man, this is D1 baseball. So I ended up in the wac conference at that time. And that's what attracted me. They were the only ones who wanted me. There you go. Yeah. Let's let's hit you What attracted you to go to go to school. She went to all right. So originally I got my division 1 basketball scholarship not because the coach saw me play song. I had actually got suspended from school in that middle of that week for stepping on the kids pair of Jordans and stepped on the guys J's at lunch. He told me to apologize water, but his tone told me you got another thing coming and you you know how that how that is African American men. Are you telling me I need to apologize in that tone. Well, I got to spend it come to find out my dad and the principal knew each other and he said he can come back to school cuz my cuz I really didn't do anything. All I did was stand up and some girl, you know Fight Club. They say suspend them both everybody but I didn't do nothing. So like I said my dad went back up to the school the next day he fought for me and he says well he can come back to school. He can come to the game. He could not play in the game where the game is where I went to high school in Lansing, Michigan. I went to Lansing Everett Everett High School. And if anybody knows anything about Lansing Everett, that is the high school that Earvin Magic Johnson went to so the game that I played was the big rivalry game Lansing Sexton vs Lansing Everett and I couldn't play so I'm clapping and cheering for my teammates and there was a scout at the game and my attitude because he saw me supporting my team. He saw me, you know, just supporting them even and it off one of my lowest moments at that time. He said who is the kid and the coach said honor roll student great kid great personality good player just got caught up at the wrong place at the wrong time man. Never bath. Let me play offered me a division one scholarship to Cal State Fullerton. Let's stop so just just by clapping and cheering so come to find out that was my junior year. I did not even do the recruiting process of going picking your five schools or anything like that. I was from Atlanta. I had just moved up with my dad with me moving up with my dad in Lansing. I just knew I wanted to get as far away from Michigan without crossing the body of water and the California was that school and you're thinking when you go out on your visit they take you to Disneyland, you know, they take me to a house party and it's like, you know, you see palm trees and you're like, yeah I'm going here like bump is in California, you know coming from a Michigan and now my dream caught my dream school was to go to Florida FAMU and the funny thing about that was FAMU was not going to recruit me. And then you was not going to recruit me up in Michigan. So me not understanding conferences or anything like that. I just wanted to go to FAMU cuz I was from Atlanta and I just need to be like that Rattler. That was my big thing. Well, that's another story to that situation. But I chose Fullington because that coach gave me my first letter and I said the first person that shows that they're interested in that that was where my loyalty was going to last. And so I made that jump I speaking of the ACT SAT situation. I took that ATT offers more times and the funny thing about it is my graduation day from high school. I I just took the SAT 2 weeks prior in another city and I was like, well, I'm not going to get up and take the ACT. Something said get up take the ACT that was from 8 to 12. I graduated at 2 and then I had my what's the low graduation poem?.

Age of Calamity Is a Hyrule Warriors Sequel and a Breath of the Wild Prequel

"And welcome to Nintendo voice ITN's Nintendo podcast. I'm your host Casey Freedom in this week I'm joined by Brian Tano. Hey, Lee. Back on that from games come. Hey what's up? Hairstyle. So here. I am also here I'm also here well, I got I got busted I was still working when the show started. So a lot of people will see what I look like when I'm typing emails. I. See. Her. But this week, we will be talking about higher warriors age of calamity, how we really feel about Super Mario Three D all-stars being limited release in ramifications behind that move and of course about how much it costs but I believe the obviously the biggest news this week I mean besides some other big news but we don't really care about that on the show is higher warriors age calamity. Is Coming on November twentieth. Your. Game. I mean in it comes out the day after Cyberpunk I'm not happy about that. Yeah that seems like a mistake. Yeah. So I will I will say that like this was this was a surprise for sure right like this is in a in a year full of things leaking constantly. This was pretty awesome surprised to find that there's essentially a prequel to breadth of the wild coming to Nintendo switch. If, I just defined as that than. Most excited man in the world but this is a game in from tecmo Koei. It is a a warrior style game akin to hurry warriors and viral. Euros is that was called. which is Great. If you wait is it let's get that. Right? Is it heroes the one on the phone or is heroes the one? I ever warriors is the one on on. Okay I see you out there. Firing them sub. Read it. Relax. We got it. Right. Thank you. Thank you for having my back on that one pair your. That's happening. You saw. WanNa drought. Running back if you wanna see pair absolutely roast Brian Yeah No, you totally left me at the dry there. You're know if I ever move on a call Atkins accent come over and helping move and not you because you were not close friends. Resent. It is really difficult to keep the names of the warriors franchise straight right they. They're all of these games are so different in name. Yet they're all part of the warriors. Franchise. Dynasty. High rule yet and Hans maybe the fire emblem game is called find bloom heroes. Okay No, it's warriors. Okay. Let's move on. Somebody offer discord call. I WanNa worry a warriors game. So I from what I've been seeing overall people have been accepting this overall positively I think if this was part of a bigger directs I, think people would have seen the beginning of this thought it was brought to the while to and then been kind of like. Hey. Can I don't know taken by surprise? It's not what they're expecting but because they were upfront, it was a standalone announcement. It's able to kind of shine on its own and not to be in the shadow of what people really really wrong because now it's just a cool bonus. I understand why they did it the way that they did, but I have to say that. Having our Numa start this statement by. We know that people have been waiting for news about breath of the wild for a very long time. It's so cruel what A. Roller coaster of emotions man that was like Oh. My God Oh, I see I see. I, for some reason I did not I was not expecting any news on Zelda and so when he appeared I'm like Cool Zelda pick cross or something right? Like he I instantly when I saw him I somehow instantly knew it was going wasn't going to be the the sequel but I thought they handled the announcement really well, you know they set the set the stage saying it's GonNa be a while until you hear more information about the next game, but here's something to you over and. You know like I played the last Jairo Warriors, fired it up the you know. Yesterday and played a bunch with my daughter and it's like these games are good. We gave them seven Slat think Casey you reviewed one right. So Jose reviewed the original gave it a seven I. reviewed the definitive edition on the switching. Gave it a seven point five for good I know that our scale doesn't. Follow that anymore. But if I had to either up down, I, would honestly probably bump it up to an eight down to a seven. I, think the amount of content in that game is astounding even though it is kind of repetitive I mean it's Musso game for Games, Dynasty Warriors. You're just fighting hordes of enemies, but with highrise finish edition you you got like thirty one characters and right off the bat you had sixteen to choose from, and then on top of that, the story is actually. Even, completely off the wall in bonkers ridiculous. It was still pretty There's a to it and there are a lot of really interesting. man I'm drawing a blank cut scenes that kind of gave more personality to allow the characters and they brought characters from all of the different Zelda game. So I really enjoyed it and on top of that, you got a regular legends. Zelda map to explore where you could. There's a lot to go read the rape. Yeah, it's an. replaying it I. I was struck by how much fun it is. It is fun to just kinda slash these hordes of enemies and like get bigger specials and you know switching between characters unlocking more. There is a there's a lack of the final tweak and finish that Zelda Games known for right like just even the way the camera fields is just super. Janki to me like by default he can tweak a lot in this game, which is great. Right? Like everything just is a little Jane he still. Including the whole like I've mentioned this before it sometimes feels like a Zelda imposture thing you look at the characters saying something is wrong with the way they. Look and all of that but as a silly. Game it works and then case you exactly right. It's like this game is all about volume. It's all about like hordes of enemies and it's all about hordes of rewards like when you finish level, it's almost like this like giant treasure chest monster comes forward and just barth items out it's just like you. Blew. You finish a level has just list after list of these things in you hitting the button to get through all of them right? which is completely different from Zelda game where it's like you find the hook shot and it's like this momentous occasion that's you over the next two hours. Like to me Zelda has always been about I think most people about you know exploration

Baldo Looks Like Zelda Meets Ghibli... and We're Here For It

"We actually finally got an intendo direct. This week it was up into world showcase so we got to learn about a bunch of different games. I just wanted to start with asking. What's everyone looking forward to who sign? Brian obviously has one type super excited. The name Baldo. You never so rude as unbelievably rude. That's fair you know. I keep up that attitude. Maybe you'll be excited for one day to parents. Although I am. Do you make your all excited for Baldo? I think one day Baldo will come for us all but yeah I this to me was the highlight. This game to me was the standout of the direct. Apparently this has been known quantity for about a year but I just completely missed the boat on this last. So last year I think someone on facebook took ITN's trailer and shared it and that bootleg trailer did millions of us. Yeah so we have a a pseudo preview from John Ryan last from last year may twenty eighth where he talks about You know just the gameplay trailer this is the same trailer that ran in the direct yesterday. But the the thing that struck me about it it's like this looks like a level. Five Game Jimmy. It looks like something straight out of. Ghibli like the cats with these giant cauldrons. And there's like big robot dudes and I you know the the game plates me. Obviously we don't really know a ton about it but it looked like old school Zelda. You know it kind of reminded me a little bit of yes remember. Hob that game. Ha Yeah Yeah. It kind of looked like the style where you're looking at a kind of an isometric view and solving puzzles minimal combat petting dogs meeting interesting characters and honestly that game looks gorgeous. It's same sort of Cel. Shaded Watercolor style of the studio Ghibli film in like. Yeah that was the one to me that like popped out and and really stuck with me. I tweeted about it yesterday but like this game is coming in the summer and I can't wait like it looks. The developers specifically said they wanted to marry their favorites action adventure. Rpg Zelda like games with their favorite Famous Japanese animation which can only be studio Ghibli and they wanted to make a game that had both aspects together. I think from what looks looks like believe that I mean we have to play it to know for sure that they've captured the charm in the enemy shit and the gameplay that they were going for but it looks great.
