Ubisoft Is Developing A Massive Open-World ‘Star Wars’ Video Game

"Open world star was game is in development. Not at electron arts sits in development at. Ub soft it's from the division developer yousof massive. No indication has been given us u whether it would be single player or multiplayer. Or what part of the star was timeline or win and might be released but Ub eve chemo says quote on. It's an original stores adventure. That is different from anything that has been done before. Sam what do you make of that. It can't be two stories. you can't be star. Wars chess masters tarazi yummy. Oh it's none of those things. If you just eliminate all the way star wars has manifested itself. You can figure out what this game is because it's not any of those cannon whatever it is going to be cannon with with just films and everything everything our young everything hanan. I think this is such cool news. the division is not necessarily my cup of tea but like big aaa studio. That's really really well. Resourced and capable of of of doing star wars justice undeniably so Yeah i'm really really excited. We also dug into some of the jobless things because obviously now the the word is out there like our star wars project and they're able to be a little bit more descriptive there. Nothing to revelatory words like open world action adventure linear and lawn on linear storytelling. An rpg style progression were thrown around. So it's a video game folks you heard for as many star wars games as we've gotten. Yeah it's been a million where you know this this little trailer montage. That's running a showing several of them. We haven't really ever gotten a big aaa open world star wars game. There has been role playing games. And you know jet. I fallen order is. I don't know what you would call that wide. Probably i would. I would think on the positive side. This is just yet i fall. And were because it's a bunch of open areas and ed fine with me but i want i want like i want like sky rim levels of open like our fallout lending open area. Yeah i want like actual open world star wars game. Where like that's this weird hole in the in all the star wars games we've gotten in the past if it was that that that could work well but what worries me is seeing the division footage and thinking about the avengers and like you know we did our lessons being learned about what You know open world games are when they are also games a service or are thus not being learned about that and people really like the division say anthems that the thing that scares me as much as a jazz. Yeah that's a that's a very real you know. I'd like star wars as much as the next nerd. But the franchise assertive written into a corner because there are no jet. I in modern star wars so unless they go back in time to old republic all any player ever want to do is run around as a djeddai but the fiction of every single star. Wars game has to itself for why you know. I'm not a jet. I but i'm using a lightsaber or Or calcutta's in jeddah. Fallen order is a jet. I'd here's why you know. No one knows about him like i. It's this big stumbling block. That like every star wars game has to overcome so but even if you are jet. I like you can't be getting a new lightsaber and equipping new loot and being on this loop dried. Really like he got different different robes. Sure where they can make that work. that's horrible. I think that's why a builder public works of the time when there were there were a lot of it is. I'm definitely a fan of a lot of ubisoft. Open world games. A lot of the Is far cries but Yeah just to echo what you're saying. The divisions are really my cup of tea. Either a shared world sort of lewd or shooters not really what. I what i'm into. So i don't know i don't know what to make of this Tina i know you like a lot of assassins creeds. Obviously like open games shema. What what's your take on this. I didn't play of division one. I did actually like the vision to i think there are. Rpg elements that make sense and like you know really big dense world to go around and do different activities in could could be a really good fit to so. I have confidence that us off. Nasa is a great choice in general Breaking out of. Ea exclusively is a good thing for them if felt like felt like ea developing those games Was a bit of practice for what is now known as lucasfilm games. And now they get to branch out and pick like a clipper per the type of game that they're going for so that they don't feel necessarily like hamstring into Squeezed into one publisher particularly. So it's like they got a little bit confidence with the successive jet iphone. Order and star wars squadrons and a couple advancements the battlefront two. So they've figured out a formula that could work and now they get to poach essential essentially developers from different talents to figure out what else they're gonna do in this increasingly dense cannon star wars world.

Saudis sporting soft-power attempt

"November twenty eighth the green lights over the greed in jeddah will go out and the first saudi arabian grand prix will into life and though twenty formula one qasr raise a mightily impressive in the start of a race. They will need to rev extra to have any hope of drowning out throughout about the propriety of this event occurring at all a row to which this very explainer is about to make a modest contribution. Let's look at the undeniable upsides. I which one take too long in and of itself. The saudi arabian grand prix will doubtless be a splendid spectacle. It is to be held on a street circuit in jeddah the precise layout remains to be confirmed but it seems certain one part of the track will conduct formula one's spelt machines down the konishi the boulevard which hugs the red sea coast. And the saudis will certainly dredge deeply from the bottomless pit of money to rent the proceedings as sumptuous extravagant as possible. It might even be of crucial importance in the context of next season. The saudi arabian grand prix will be the second lost race of the year. So if two thousand and twenty one turns out not to be yet. Another procession led by lewis hamilton. The wheel of his mercedes come at the calendar man lewis. Hamilton starts an incredible qualifying. They could still be much to play playful when the teams arrive in jeddah. So that's the good news. Then there are the reasons why this edition to the formula. One calendar is the stuff of foreign desk explainers. It is hopefully not necessary to reemphasize the variety and severity of the ways in which the saudi regime is one of the world's most repressive. We do not have all day still less all month. It is suffice to say a regime which ethically inclined businesses would tend to regard from the foreign bargepole formula one does not appear overly troubled on this front in recent years alone. Races have been held in russia as a fan bahrain and china. None of whom would be within sight of the podium at any sort of grand prix of human rights. it is probably not outrageous to suggest that formula one's principal objections to holding a race meeting in north korea. Iran equatorial guinea or turkmenistan would be logistical rather than an ethical. So we know what formula one wants from this. What's more interesting is what saudi arabia is off to. Saudi arabia has some history of recognizing the immense soft power possibilities of formula one in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighty s saudi state airline saudia sponsored the uk based williams team australian driver. Alan jones carried their logo to the one thousand nine hundred world championship. Tell checkered flag often goes allen jones. what a wonderful way to pay is nineteen eighteen world championship. Riyadh's re engagement with the sport is being pitched as part of the modernizing reformist agenda of ambitious saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman though it does not feel untoward lee churlish to note that nba if to whole saudi arabia into the mid nineteenth century have made some distinctly old school d to via for example conducting a ruinous rampage in neighboring yemen and dispatching hitmen to murder a vexatious journalist the un's extrajudicial executions investigator. Agnes calamar has just released a report at pains a- damning picture of saudi arabia's role in the murder of journalists jamal has all of which is tricky to square with formula one's commitment to respect for human rights which f. one has typed out on their website and everything it promises to it says he engage in meaningful consultation with relevant stakeholders in relation to any issues raised as a result of out due diligence. A sentence which could have been designed to lull readers to sleep inside four syllables. Human rights groups are already speaking of their hope that lewis hamilton who barring mishap will be defending his seventh world championship. Next season might get out in front of this. How has grown more politically outspoken. This year in particular among the slogans on the black lives matter t shirt he wore at this year's emilia romagna grand prix was women's rights are human rights. A repeat performance would give saudi broadcasters amusing connections. Saudi arabia is clearly keen on what has become known as sports washing the tactic beloved unpleasant regimes of staging sporting circuses. In the hope that they may distract from your moral infirmities and impressed with your economic progress in recent years. Saudi arabia has hosted international gulf tennis equestrian and other tournaments formula one one of the planet's most popular television spectacles. He's a massive step up.

Woman beheaded and 2 others killed in knife attack at French church

"The terror attacks have been happening in France. I This was all and we talked a little bit about this yesterday.

And one of the kids, the kids. Parents got mad, and then he ended up being beheaded. So in two other terror attacks at France in the past 24 hours. The first is that the Notre Dame basilica and niece and the second was in Avignon. And a Tunisian, a migrant. 21 year old Brahima Soo. Ah, we beheaded an elderly parishioner and a male church warden. And then he fatally stabbed a third woman. And then two hours later, a guy with a gun screaming Allah Akbar was shot and killed by cops in Avignon. So then there was a guard at the French consulate in Jeddah. Saudi Arabia. He was stabbing wound, stabbed and wounded by a knife. Then two other men were arrested. There was another guy was arrested in Leone. There was another guy's rested elsewhere in France, and this is because Emmanuel Macron defended and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I will give credit where do free speech He defended free speech when in discussing the those the cartoons. He traveled to Nis. And he said it was clear that France is under attack because of our values of freedom and our desire not to give in to terror, he says. I say with lots of clarity again today we will not give any

"Yana. Nino thought BS planned to spend the summer before her first year at Stanford Medical School doing contact tracing working retail. But when her job search a dead end, she went back to seasonal fruit picking work. She's been doing since she was fourteen. At the end of one long day she tweeted about farm workers like her being paid seven dollars for two gallons of blueberries. She then asked how much do you pay for your blue various? I had talked to her I did and learn so much about her path to medicine as a first gen college student indigenous rights farm worker's Rights on. We'll consumers need to know about the people who make their food possible. Jeddah. Where are you right now? I'm Linden from California Palo Alto our new you're back at school ivax going out here. I always remember those summers during college going home in it's. It's so strange because you have all this independence when you're at school and then you come home and your parents. Treat, you like you're still in high school, right? Right and every time I go home. It's just there's just a large expectation fairly for my mom is my own expectation that I should be like helping my mom in linked doing some chores and like lightening her load guy at school it's like you're right like complete freedom I do whatever I want whenever I want. Do you perceive your mom to have a heavy load Yeah absolutely. I think she's our only period and. I think that you know we go to work and she has to come home and make them some meals for everyone. There's five of us and she kind of like cleaned for Yooglie of she loves house being cleaned. So I help out with all those things whenever I can. To Lot Yeah You're born you're born in Eastern, Oregon, you grew up in eastern Washington state. Told me about where you grew up. So Eastern. Washington is very different from Seattle. I think that's why. Like columnists conception that I. Get is that the thing it's just like satellite super rainy it's actually not. So eastern Washington Eastern Oregon both desert in the rain shadow of. E mountain range. So we get like very little rain, it's very conservative. There's very little diversity out there I think the main communities of color that live out there my farmer communities in the needle in communities I think it was a great place ago by the you grow up because it is so rural. There's so much nature around there so much like the outdoor activities to do Saigo peron alarm really enjoyed around a lot of fields. So my working in the field I love Eastern Oregon eastern Washington I would love to go back someday is that the plan to go back? Yeah. Absolutely. How old were you when you started working in the fields? I was fourteen years old. What was your first day of work like? I. Think I was super excited for my first year. We're ten years ago. And they all super excited because I would get to contribute. Tie Household I, think the causes for me was like, okay I can use this money to go to my mom to make your life easier and then she would let me keep some of it so that I could spend it on what I wanted to nature's like take my siblings than I on a shopping spree for for school. So he went to buy school supplies in. We were very excited like Bonnie backpacks unlike brand name markers and stuff like that. I have three younger siblings. So they were all little and they were excited because we had never done that like I think I'll. Getting. The bare minimum that we need for school and now it's finally like being I was able to get them whatever they wanted. Is there a story from childhood that captures who you were as a kid. I think one story though remembering like me, my mom and my sister was. Going to do this activity called Battle of the books where there's a selection link. Eight books that read it's handling a quiz bowl style where you just like recall parts of the book and I've always loved reading and so we were remembering that I read all the books like my sister was on my team even though she was two years younger than me in the elementary school and she was like, yeah, you just carry the team and you like because remembered everything and I think that that was super emblematic of just who I was of like my love for reading my. Or. Competitive data. Just like a real enjoyment for school and like why The promise of my mom always wanted to go to school didn't get the chance to and so. She was always telling me and my siblings like, Oh, you go to school a you do all in school. It's GonNa take you to a Lotta places in. So I guess those just carry me through life

"That's quite a lot of news which is very exciting and a lot of business news, which is like super-duper. Going, on in a start with three really good business news like news, the three business news it was the new news is three new launches, which is Yup. I'm dead excited about I. One I feel like this has been coming forever and ever and ever and people are excited is Jackie. Aina has announced her brand is coming out. And it's called forever mood. It's the forever moon. It's very exciting I. Feel like this is just writing. That's been talked about forever. She's been teasing it for whatever and it feels like it's finally finally coming. There's not much to say at the minute apart from that skull forever mood. There's no e in the forever. It's just F. O.. V are. Because at night stylized we like it. But as soon as we got more information on that, we will share it. Yep and second launch, which again excited, and they've just announced the first U. products in this range, which I did not see coming. And this is the Patrick Star one size launch? so He's been teasing again for awhile. He's been teasing on his youtube videos getting people to get viewers to send them little videos of them. Saying like bt is a one-size-fits-all turns out right because it is brand is called wants is. The way is this program to stop beauty. So this is just so. You're thinking of Patrick Tar beauty. And Onto Patrick. And you know it says on this podcast. Confuse those two people I am not how? How dare I say moment? Names of very similar. I'm Marilyn up by twenty ounces. Early sat in a restaurant with two that you would I know often jess and Her friend who worked for LEMAIRE and they were. Running an event with Patrick tar and they were talking about Oh. Yeah, as I fear on the plane, he should be here any minute and I was like no I've just seen him on instagram. He's like in Hawaii and they were like. On. A beauty Jeddah's like this is why I think we have to change my name to unprofessional. In front of me of to. Supposed to know a whole podcast audience, but like they know. I mean I'm not I'm great with faces, names and they've faces a very different, so you would have been dying. This is Patrick saw our because. And yet his brand, one size, and it's going to be in Sephora for the initial lawn. We'll know more about where it's going to be internationally as we go on on the first two brands that have been at first you products are either have been announced the go off makeup, dissolving missed and the go off makeup remover wipes. Okay so skin, cal skincare, but definitely make up remover. I think you have indicated this. Yeah they. Edged into skin care, but it was with an eye makeup removal rather than clothing, which is in an interesting extension of the cleansing category as the crossover between cleansing a makeup. Cleanser it's makeup remover. I'm on the fence about you need. Make remove I guess if you wearing a lot of makeup, you do it. These I always find those mists and the makeup remover sprays fascinating how they work I don't stand there. Witchcraft you spray on in your whole face melts off like Indiana. Jones like death becomes her. It's totally mad. The interest to see what else is coming. The packaging is gorgeous. It's all is bright metallic read. It reminds me a little bit of. So. Body sprays from the ninety S. Yes, I remember. Like a metallic red spotty red packaging. That looks really cool. We'll see welcome to come I did a bit of background research on this, and it's because I always brand. That's come from Sephora like Marc Jacobs yet. Betty itself actually. And it's not. It's coming from an incubation group called luxury brand partners, and a also look after Smith and colts. That's where it's myth and cult came from the nail Polish brand, and they were the money behind Becker before they sold Bekker's trae lording. Yes, so CEO was a form of Becca CEO. So. They've got a lot of. Beauty expertise in the gang. Interesting an interesting. Yeah it's going straight into Sephora and it's not a Sephora incubated. Brandon's competes brand. One come from luxury brand partners, so yes, since we get more news on one size, we'll let you know and then the other news, which is hot off the presses Hof. scold inch. Is Fantasy. Skin has just been announced. Again thinking about it and my head I was like wait. Not already accessible I'm like no, no, it doesn't. That's going to be exciting. July thirty first on skin dot com, even going on anti-beauty is is entirely its own thing. While I kind of like the savage frontier. The extensions like it's going to be like in separating. What's interesting? Really really interesting I'm curious as to see how that's going to go i. don't know what the product is going to be. It's literally just dropped as a logo an. Yes, so no more will no more and the last piece of Christmas. News we want to mention is. We had a big pre compensation. We had a meeting about the yes. About this one. I think it's an important piece of news share. Without necessarily getting into our personal thoughts and feelings on it, because we have and that's for another time. MORPHE- have ended their relationship with Jeffrey medics, which is huge news huge, yeah! I think that's going to be. Lots of people talking about your Fisher. Of. Discussion and debate as to what his involvement was with Morpheus. A company is whether or not he owned of more viewers investors like the. It was quite unclench. But what we do for sure is. He is a massive massive revenue driver form OFI, so it's a huge step for them to terminate that relationship and out that of his supply chain, so think is, it's jeopardy. Saw Cosmetics Company. Yet the company, so I mean interesting. We'll see what happens with morphine now where they go. Yeah, but just a business news

Travel to Saudi Arabia

"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christianson. Let's talk about Saudi Arabia. I'd like to welcome to the show flow meter. Who's come to us from Munich Germany but come to talk to us about Saudi Arabia flow? Welcome to the show. Thank you Chris. Happy to be here. Saudi Arabia is not a place that well actually. It's a place that a lot of people have gone on Hosh. It's one of the most popular travel destinations in the world but for people who are not Muslims. It is a relatively new destination very true yet. Open up its tourist visa in the end of September so everything is very new. There and for me was the interesting part of really yet. Go to a country where tourism really hasn't been a part of the history in the last year. I guess that answers the question of why you went to Saudi Arabia. Was there more to the story than just it opened up. The opportunity was available. I mean Saudi Arabia. There's so much so much to talk about. I mean first of all landscape. I think we always think about at least to me. It was okay. Saudi Arabia desert oil encampments. That's the first words that came to remind but the landscape boys. There is so much more to see. I mean the Sea of the mountains zero than history wise. I mean a lot of ancient kingdoms coming from there the history of Islam being from there but for me it was one of the biggest reasons why a went to Saudi. Arabia was the hospitality of the people. I heard such amazing things about that. I've been around in the Middle East and I wanted to experience it for myself and as soon as I heard. They opened up the doors for tourists. I said okay. I'm going to jump on that wagon and I want to see for myself to really see how it is. And what kind of an itinerary? Are you going to recommend for us when you look at the map? Saudi Arabia is a huge country. So I always say it's better to have more time than less. But if you have about eight to ten days that should give you a good idea overview over the country so I did it. I'd recommend always starting in Ria. That's the capital on the east side. And then making your way for the West stow after that a Lula which is a beautiful beautiful historic site than to Medina which is super interesting because Muslims go there as well now and then to Jeddah and then from Jeddah head back to Fly Back from Jeddah which options whatever works best for you excellent before we get into that in more detail one place. You didn't name and I WANNA talk about why you didn't name. It is a place that other people might be interested in going. And that's Mecca and there's a reason why you didn't name Mecca and we OUGHTA address the elephant in the room as it were so if he would want to go to Mecca. I'll give you the picture you'll drive on the road and then you see a big sign which says non Muslims go right and Muslims go straight celebrate as a non Muslim. You're not allowed to go to Mecca. And that of course has to be respected now of course if you are Muslim than that's entirely different and you in fact are encouraged or required depending on how one looks at that to make a trip to Mecca at least once in your life if you have the means to do so. So but we're not gonNA address Mecca in this particular episode. We're not going to address going on Hajj because most of the show can't do that so excellent you started us in Riyadh exactly so the beauty of Saudi Arabia is that everything is pretty new so I mean arriving day you arrive at a Super Bowl Airport. I first of all said okay. I'm GonNa take the metro into town so followed the metro signs only to find out that not. That's not billed yet. So that's how earlier wasn't the country so back out of the airport into Uber and into town. We think we always have this idea that Saudi Arabia is a very rich country but maybe a bit old school. That definitely didn't find that the case Uber which works fantastic they have all the amenities modern buildings amazing and paired with all the history that comes with it and there was amazing for me on firsthand arrived in the country. I get into Uber. You drive into town takes about forty five minutes because traffic is crazy and we start talking and suddenly he stops and he gets out of the car and he comes back into the car with a box of oranges. And I'm super perplexingly. Okay what would you know? He's giving me this box of oranges and I was like okay. Maybe we did the picked it up for his wife or his family and he's like no no no. This is for you and this was the first time really experienced hands on Saudi hospitality. Which is insane. I mean I've been to a lot of places but never ever did uber. Taxi driver gave me a present for just arriving in the country. And that would be a new one for me as well. It's really insane. And this was not a one time I arrived in is expensive. There's a lot of hotels but they are quite expensive when expensive sixty seventy USD. For I would say the the cheapest room.

Lawrence Wright on Researching a (Fictional) Pandemic

"Last book was God Save Texas Nonfiction. I believe there was a play in between and now this just curious how you go from one project to the next and and forgive me if I skipped a project that may have been in between as well years ago. I made a resolution that I would only do things that were important or fun. Was you know the state of confusion about what I wanted to do with my life and I thought I as a journalist I like to be on the important stories of the day but I also realized that it didn't want to give up things that really joyful and so those are the polls stars of my career and I think is sort of understandable that I would now be working on a musical but you know if you take those as your pulse stars in. I think you can have a pretty interesting career. Are they ever important and fun? Yes this book was. I know it sounds you know is is is a rather bleak book but I really had a wonderful time researching it and going into the world of of public health in all these swashbuckling intellectuals I just admire them so much so I I really had a good time working on this book. All right I'm going to cut to the chase and let everyone know who doesn't know already that the end of October is a fictional story of a pandemic so before we get into more about it and want to go back again to the origin stories. You've said that the director Ridley Scott Asks you a question after Reading Cormac. Mccarthy's the road and that that was your inspiration. What was the question? And when did he ask this? When were you sitting around with Ridley Scott talking about this? This was a decade ago and he is questioned was what happened because Cormac didn't say anything. About what event or of nature had brought civilization to heal? So I started thinking about what could do that and of course I thought about nuclear war but I was a young reporter covering diseases out of the Center for Disease Control in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. There's a swine flu outbreak in the legionnaires disease and I had become enchanted with that world and the courage and ingenuity of the people that I found there and so I thought it'd be an interesting place to find a hero because I felt that those people that I met were really heroic and that disease had been underestimated as a problem for our society in modern times. So Ridley Scott ask you this question about a decade ago and you had been thinking about it because you had reported on disease over the years. When did you actually start working on? This novel really never made the movie. So like Mr Destiny of so many projects in Hollywood and about in two thousand seventeen. I've been thinking about this story. Still is in my mind so I decided I would go back and work on work on. It is a knock and this time I would dive into the research even more deeply and let the story emerged more naturally rather than cinematic -ly so that's that's how the novel got started. You are such a master your master of many forms but I love your nonfiction so much. There's so much research material in this. Did you think maybe there should be nonfiction? I DID CONSIDER WRITING ABOUT MORE DISEASES. But you know it already had an imaginary character and a world which it was said. I got attracted to the idea of tempting it as a novel. It seemed a challenge for me and I wanted to see if I could do it. Who WAS THAT IMAGINARY CHARACTER? Will the name of my heroes? Henry Parsons in the late. Nineteenth Century in England. There was another influence of outbreak and a young epidemiologist named Henry. Parsons was the first to prove that it was caused by contagion and not by my asthma's in the environment you know. He's totally forgotten figure. But I decided to tip my hat to him and name my character. Henry Parsons he is a man whose life has been touched rather savagely by disease and works out of the Center for Disease. Control where I had done by early reporting. And he's an epidemiologist who's confronted many diseases in the past but has always known that there was one awaiting him. There was going to be the big challenge so the CDC is in Atlanta Georgia and the United States. But this novel the breakout begins elsewhere. You have it really kind of take hold in Mecca. Why did you choose to do that? We'll after nine eleven when I was working on my book looming tower. The Saudis wouldn't let me in as a reporter so I got a job. I was mentoring young reporters at the Saudi Gazette in Jeddah which had bin Laden's hometown and one of my very first jobs was to supervise their coverage of the Hodge and I was was not allowed to go to Mecca myself but I was in communication every day with my reporters and I was very struck at the time about the hazard of gathering of people in one place from all over the world and having every year some disease arises sometimes more than one and there's an epidemic in Mecca and then people get on airplanes and they fly home. Well you know what if it was something really dangerous suppose it was like the nineteen eighteen flu. That was in my gosh even when I was living in Saudi Arabia enter the CA-. Golly flew right. This is her fictional virus. Tell us about that sickness. And how did you come to describe what this flu would be like? Why a flu even influence is unconquered. It's the great killer it every year. We lose maybe you know fifty thousand people to influence a very dangerous disease. Clever in a way in that has always mutating. And you never know what's going to show up the next year. I mean the the fluid self that comes every year is sort of a descendant of that nineteen eighteen original Spanish flu right. That's correct Pamela. We're right now. The seasonal flu is H. One IN ONE. Which is the strain that killed between fifty and one hundred million people in nineteen eighteen? And I said as a young reporter I had done stories out of the Center for Disease Control but one of them in nineteen seventy six was a sudden outbreak of h one in one which is what public health officials had been dreading their entire careers. And it was a young man of recruit in Army Base Fort Dix in New Jersey. David Lewis suddenly after a Long March. Came back to the barracks in died. They examined the tissues discovered. It was h one n one Tremendous panic took place in. I win all over talking to people in Fort Dix and enter the members of David Lewis is family and so on the big mystery was he was the only one who died and yet you know there was this in national vaccine program and it became kind of catastrophe for Gerald Ford because people got sick from the vaccine. It was just a total mess but hanging over this was peculiar FAC fifty. Two hundred million people died you know a century ago and then only one and then in two thousand nine to the H. One in one came back as a pandemic and it was more like seasonal flu in his still with us but the the question I had was what would happen if something like the nineteen eighteen flu brand new novel virus came into our culture. How would we handle? It will be better prepared than our ancestors were in one thousand nine hundred eighteen and so the the flu that I create Congolese is really modeled on that. Old Virus one that came out in nineteen eighteen. It was also a hemorrhagic fever. You know there was no resistance to it in the population. I actually created a template that is based on the progress of the flu in Nineteen Eighteen. So in the novel the fluid advances across the globe. It pretty much mirrors. What was going on in nineteen eighteen?

'Jedi: Fallen Order' Shows That a Good Star Wars Game Doesn't Have to Be Original

"Talk about what might be my favorite game of the whole year star Star Wars Jedi fallen. I haven't walked back. He came in two three days ago and so game of the year hasn't finished it so he says journalist so I played it for about a week now and who ooh I love it David. Lexus Game Tomb Raider. It is a lot like tomb. Raider little uncharted and then apparently a little dark souls. But I wouldn't know. Oh will you like Neil and save at points so yes that's right yeah so it is very tomb raider but but I think it controls like more like an action game which looks kind of goofy over the shoulder and you're watching somebody play still bouncing around like an idiot but it makes sense for doing that but I also downs around like and and it's also because the only time you've watched well watched other people. Maybe yeah well mainly combat the Jevon driven around like an idiot probably okay Salmon Tina. You're both playing just. Nasim played it yet to hear how RPG like it is uh-huh this say it's very RPG. Excited I don't mean to derail I had heard was that has a really big really involved skill tree which I didn't know it has the skill tree that pretty much every game released. Okay this Asan's creed got it it's less RPG as isis greenhouse so it's like everything is RPG like in some way so it falls on the RPG scale somewhere. Yeah these are the distinctions. We need to make before twenty question. No that's one of the greatest things about it has all of these like little elements five different games and different genres and kind of come together in a cohesive way so excited it should decorate. Yeah we're actually recording this before a review goes up Dan Is Handling Review. I I don't know what's so I don't know what score is GonNa come down on but I know he's very very high on he's bullish on one thing I like about The the combat so far has been frustrating. Although I know you solve it when we were the three demo and you've got through a bunch of the stuff but right now it's like I'll have a group of enemies around me and it's actually like tough enough that I'm dying a lot. And I've had moments in Batman Arkham asylum. It like that but what I like about it is that while I'm doing that you are constantly deflecting shots being shot at you from faraway really really fun and I know so. It's because like the lasers are slower than bullets which is like the stupidest thing like me a human see the blazers. It's coming at me. I feel like really cool like doing it. But if that was really how lasers work that I could probably do that. They just slowing it down the human you but the jet I you in the game actually sees it much whole games running et exactly the just showing you what a Great Lakes game design challenge feel like lasers but be slow to deflect all the other game design challenge too. Is You have a lightsaber. That should be able to push through most anything but there's like really big pots into but other ones. Okay no the really big ones. You can't do all you can't through any walls and the game either Tori really great. Yeah you're always on the other side of like three like metal bars looking through it's like you and it has actually for sure they have you looking indication later you'll be able able to get through here like Metro and you know just melt bars you got but you are in Jeddah temple so maybe it's Anti Jetta made made from some metal. What's the DELOREAN's metal armor made out of? I don't know I just watched a whole episode about it. I can't tell you I love hearing how metro-wide Vania e it is or Metro chime specific measure prime which which the developers were up front about that multiple planets that are way more intricate. And you you know. Non Linear and and sort of loopy pathways than kind of expected that so an expected and cousteau metro prime was famous for this Big Three d map that you kind of see really needed needed to go or you haven't had been yet and it's really good and it was like feels like super futuristic and stuff this game has that Matt but I don't know if I'm like like if it's just like because it's less boxy unlike more organic. It's so hard to use for me right now but you say you wrap your mind. Map has a learning curve that was it was confusing at first. But now I'm used to it and I can I know. Ah If there's something on the map that I want to get to. I can usually get to it and you can. I love how the robot a BBDO sorry droid projects in math in real time. It's like in dead space when you have like your health package just like lights on your armor and there's a lot of stuff in this game really doing the work early beating the flashlight. That's true and that's also he's also your health bar on your back yes. It's so like dead space magnate and also a tip since beatty one is projecting your map in real time. It doesn't pause the game you can. It'll be a ten. Oh yeah the hard way giant rats around. Yeah don't look run for your life is i. Don't want any stories. Spoiler the rats kill you is your killer viciously. It's a big threat to a jet here right now is that are you. Is your character cool. I think so. He's likeable and it's not like super every other characters better. I mean he's just like he's like a pretty vanilla hero but it doesn't bother me. I will say this there are some really funny moments. I forget what it was. What was one of the early comments? Oh because he's a yeah exactly like they're like no trashes allowed here something and he makes a joke about how he's actually trash. So there's like these little funny cute goofy moments that he just didn't make him more likable. That's another thing that I've heard just around the office is that You know that doesn't come through in the trailers just seems like incredibly generic and I've heard this game has better writing in dialogue expected surprising to me and this is not a spoiler. He's just really young. So it's like all the characters that are interesting around him are adults and he just doesn't know a lot and doesn't do a lot because he's like a teenager so I think they they don't. They didn't do a good job of sabotaging that outside the game. Now that I'm in the game like oh he's just like his whole he's just a kid. Yeah I've come to a decision I'm GONNA play it that's good. I think you're going to be happy with their. I've been joking on scoop for weeks about how I don't play anything but that's just you know I wasn't interested in call of duty and wasn't interested. Trust in-depth stranding. So this is this is the one this is the woman.

"Well jeddah all those sorts of things and after the film i went into the pub and had a drink with a bunch of the star wars fans including child one and jack howard who jack howard that jack how are you are you tell the i have always and one of the things that was that was regrets that these people who are much more holco stopped seoul's funds than than i am but the most that we're seeing it for the second time was the level at which they were having the discussion but didn't do that and what do you think about that and how did that what was was engaged in a way that was to do with the current to developments out i think the film is not without some flaws i think this is a certain sections that he was going to the casino which seemed a little bit on first viewing like a diversion and although i am thinking about it is quite hard to take that section at because you would lose other things with it but it that did failed to me was i was watching it the first time round like okay this is a bit like we're going off the left that we during this the oprah over here we turned out to be bigger than i thought and there our 102 dramatic moments that are a little on the nose for my liking but those hanging me what do you mean by that i mean that there are they are little too cute in terms of the narrative structure but the very fact that the things that i have quibbles with ought to do with a a point of narrative nicety being a little too cute a little too on the nose means that as far as the broad picture is concerned the film worked for me as a standalone drama it worked for me as a as a as a film which took it will seriously but was willing to have foam with it that understood the balance between the lighten dark that understood the balance between action that these external action that he's in telling me this a film in which their huge explosions in space and tiny explosions inside inside people's seoul's inside people psyche and actually manages to lend equal weight to each them so you don't suddenly get this the sense that the you know the dog.

"Those are the ones that come to mind for me before i go to bed i just wanna say that like i think it's it's a tough thing because if you're tricked into seeing a movie that you end up liking it's not a problem right because you ended up waking the movie if i you know there there's tons of film trailers like you know you'll get rogue one half the half the footage in the trailers for ugh wine were not in the movie in you consider them deceptive uh but generally people like that movie so generally people than have a problem with the marketing of the movie even though they wanted to know what what the regional cut was and i think you know we were talking about star were slashed jeddah in those trailers and we think that there's some kind of clever editing there uh it'll be interesting to see what people think of that after they see the movie if it is actually what we speculate it might be ben do you have any examples of this or any thoughts sort of what you're just talking about where at the experiences that i've had been more like um footage that didn't make an end to the final cut that was used prominently in the marketing and i think i may have told a story before in this podcast so i apologize if i have but the biggest example that i can remember where i got the most angry about it was i went to go see the jason state the movie the transporter based solely on this sequence from the trailer in which state them standing in a kitchen and the bad guys launch a rocket launcher missile with straight through his kitchen window he deflects it with the silver platter into his open other than in the whole thing explodes and i was like oh my god i have to see this movie immediately and that scene ended up being cut out of the final film and i was so like distraught about that when i was whatever.

"Yes there are plenty of similarities but i do think that he is going to gather there there will be no point to him coming back just to do a rehash of return of the jet i have to think that he is going to use his own movie as a as a launch pad and then you know piggyback off of what ryan johnson is done and take it to its natural conclusion point i don't think i don't even think the last jeddah is going to leave the franchise in a position in which it would make sense to essentially remake return of the chad i you know it did as it from everything we've heard it seems like at i was going to be a pretty divisive film and leave people um you know wondering about what the future of the franchise i don't think it's going to be um i don't think that movie is going to be a rehash of empire sex back and i certainly don't think that abrams sir episode nine is going to be rehash of return jack everybody of talk to that have seen the last djeddai says amino almost everybody i've talked to his really enjoyed it uh who cassoma supposedly over the moon with it but i've um almost the the singapore thing that i hear an ever ready is that it's different and it's going to probably uh not sit well with some star wars fans is going to be divisive a home to pick fighting yeah that is exciting out but we won the person they know that has seen the movie email message me after this news came up saying that he's happy that gbraves coming on because he you know didn't waksman the choice of the ryan dressing went with so uh so take that for what it what it's worth of.
