Mario Golf and RE Village Gamescast #67

"My name's nickname is up. So sixty seven. And i'm joined by andrew mill middleton. I missed the cats. The cats are they still fucking shit up. They are The absurd at the moment but safety has started to put on weight and has just started bullying her big brother like as lot and she doesn't let him on the bed. She doesn't let him have shitty likes. It's awesome self competence and that's how she's lashing out. She has more. She is very smacks. She's very proud of the cat. She's become an she fucking bullies the shit out of him decade. They just absolutely absurd. Did like they still scratch doors all night. They still like running around chasing each other through my house all night. Yeah perfect jared all across me you. I'm here to talk about video games again. What are you here. We are you hear of occasion. Where did you go. I stayed in utah. But i did a lot of golfing hung out with my girlfriend's family. A bit Yes a bit of a stake. Asian more than anything else to be honest with you but it's actually been pretty refreshing been a year since i've taken any time off from work just with buchan covert and everything that happened last year. There really wasn't a reason to go anywhere. So i just kind of focused on work and So yeah last six days. This is the last day of of the vacation. Before i go back so i feel pretty. Good man ready to Get back into the swing of things. Ready to fucking podcast on a monday. It's it's it's not really fair to call it like it's not a week day recording because i'm fairly certain all three of us were off of work. It's just more of like a recording. It feels like so. I'm not exhaustive and sweaty and gross. And like fuck. Here i am. You know so yeah. It's not bad for today was pretty melody for me. I didn't a did some odds and ends took a nap. Went to my child's a swimming lessons and that's a funny. That's a fun thing. Is it well the terrifying. What i stood behind a big thing of plexiglass or whatever reason they don't let you like in there but anne was in the pool and they They're basically i mean they're doing things that they're just like all right like brochure. Underwater push underwater that pulls up and she says like oh. I went under like yeah you put you into their. Yeah i i guess you. You're skating amused. And they're like it's a she's a baby or you can teach him to hold onto the side and stuff so i. I don't know. I guess it's good today. She like i mean can't kid like fairly early on like me. You don't have to be very old as long as you go through the process of learning. I have seen the little children swim. Eye could see her figuring it out a young age because she doesn't deal with like not being independent or someone holding her some. It's she mealy she's in the pool she's i let me go. I wanna go and you're gonna drown. You need to learn about water and now this works so who knows. I don't know it's a it's a whole thing. We missed a couple of things for me. Three no a lot of things but this is like eating a whole in you. Yeah it is it was it was. It was because i listened to the episode. And i was like man. We really gave short shrift to to eat three because it sucked the. That's fair but i be in square it out. Suppose segal to play. Till i looked that game. Yeah that's a great guy. There is some really pretty screenshots like a mediterranean. It looked mediterranean. I know could be off because that will. I was at france but There is like a scene that i saw that i was just like god damn on a high powered. Pc with a nice monitor. This would real nice. I don't know that They just released the psi version of it. And i believe it's on playstation plus so. You guys really liked that game. I really liked that game too. And i did not finish it so i thought maybe i should go back and check it out. I thought it was all really good. They may be like four cells into more combat than they need to because it's not like the combat was killing someone with a sleep with iraq. You dislike artem. It's accurate because someone do this and we play video games. We play a lotta shit. That's kind of ridiculous but for some reason this girl with the sling. Like sly you do that. I think that sitting on that as the point and not the factor ravaged summoner revenue set rats to like know the people. The argues that kind of stuff. Yeah i think that you're sticking point as the sling is wrong. One all the bible folks. I'm little chap flickering in a big due to rocket a big dude and killed him. And so that's fucking kill the fuck out of man drew. It's true. I don't know the yes. It was eating at me. It's not going out this year. unfortunately it's next year so what else. Nothing well at one. We really short. Yeah sorry everyone. But i after e. Three there were rumors from from from the rumor. Mill of jeff grubb. That dead space was getting a remake at sounds like other people of kind of confirmed that is happening. Yeah there's an announcement coming like. Yeah this week the day is you ain't play or something that they call. There's so maybe by the time the show comes out this thing already be out. it's awesome. it's awesome. I know i. Obviously i'm excited. I like that series. I don't know what a remake is because hopefully it's a reimagining a little bit like i don't wanna really replay that exact story something similar. Yeah i mean here's the thing. I'm stoked about it. I mean i'm not the biggest fan of dead space on the podcast. But i i see the potential for what could be The unfortunate thing about it is Ea doesn't get a pass in my mind. They systematically like decimated a very talented studio in visceral they had unfair numbers for the third game to achieve which were virtually impossible for a fucking survival horror game even though they took a lot of the survival horror out of the third one as far as i understand it still fun. It's just yeah sure like the third one was not the one. Yeah we'll still get. It's just it's just pretty shitty. That capcom has really good idea executes and does some remakes of games that are really popular. They make fucking shitload of money off of them and then e as like what we should do we should rebooted. It's like fuck you like you guys can eat shit like i get it like if the games. Good the games. Good but also. I just think that it's just so a the way that this is handled. And i i think you can't overlook the fact that like i mean a number of years ago. People were calling for You know visceral or not necessarily visceral but for dead space to come back and he was just like nah not gonna happen single player. No there's no money in it and then like proof of concept capcom does it. And then they're like. Oh sure capcom to do it. And respond made the that janae game share so even within their own house. The a did make some money off of a single player. A star wars single player property. But the is greg my biggest hold up in. This is like it's an ea remake coming out like we could see sunshine pieces shit show to people the wanna get excited about it. Yeah they could kill spacing of bringing back. It'd be like remember this. Yeah we've fucked it up. I mean does. I think i think again going back to like comparisons to resident evil. The remix like especially to like. I think that they realized that they got fucking nail. It like they're going to it. They got a nail it. So i'm sure it's been in development for a while now who knows when the thing's gonna come out but the whole thing is just like just keep the good studios that fucking perform. Well like not your like crazy unrealistic standards but like this was a super talented team that would probably continue to produce quality experiences. And they fucking gutted the whole fucking thing just because they're ea. I i think they. I think they moved them to hardline. I think if they did they did army of two or some shit like that which is wild because just like people were bad su- near to me like we have the studio and the said cool. What are they usually do. They really have got some talented people. They make monster naked make horror. It's really incredible. How about cops and robber about urban urban army with moss and you can change the mosques do that it probably didn't. They probably were happy with what they did. Because they are sept fail and then they're like yeah. You suck weird you cycle. I'm where also missing like the the biggest problem with the situation is fucking day. Were working on a single player star wars game like when they were gut-gutted and like i i mean i think it was schreier that talked about i. I think that was the project name But i think shire talked about like how ambitious and how cool it was probably going to be and it was really shaping up to be something special and then it's just like now. There's no money in single player like fuck off you guys. All get pink slips. Good luck in the fucking unemployment line. It's just so shitty dude so shitty so fuck you a. But i mean if that's based the new deaths is good than sore ever. We'll see how it goes. I mean when we did the halloween special about it. I think all of us even though like certain aspects of by modern day standards are fairly. Hokey i think all came away with the same kind of opinion that if you could go back to this and like revitalize that it could be something actually pretty cool. Yeah it's got a pretty cool world. Yeah yet it just like the the the setting like the theme of that whole fucking thing like it's guman. It's it's definitely cool so we'll see nintendo released a golf game. Yeah 'cause the things response podcast guy he together. He asked bit together. Why is memorial gulf. Yeah it's it's screw it up. It's gulf sixty dollars. It's yeah you know you're bringing that up before we purchased it and i was like it's nintendo game though they're really good and i did buy it and i should be sixty dollars either. I don't fuck no. This is a mobile golf game. I dunno i mean is what it is like. I never would like. Nintendo is nintendo. They're never going to be like you. Give us less money. Sure but at one point. I just need to stop buying this shit because like is it fun yes. Is it like an entertaining little gulf game. Yes yeah what else. Can i do with sixty dollars a lot. More than mario golf like. I remember playing. Pga gulf on my first computer. Were you like click your swing back and forth and it's the same fucking game. This is just like very. Mario world click. You don't even click to india swing. Now it for you. It's all relative to a skill so you just start your shit and you stop it unlike power and then it fucking does voight right. It's it's just yeah. It's just not enough here. Here's i generally agree with you. But the just to play devil's advocate a little bit. What you just described the the shot swing back and forth. That is literally every golf game ever created. Tiger woods could power up with the smashing button a little bit more. I mean follow this general. Has it's missing the last point though. Where right you're supposed to like. It goes up you hit and then you supposed to hit it again to match up. Yeah they've removed for moving lineup. Part david remove true but also like tiger woods gulf games. You have like pinpoint re imaginings of like torrey pines in like pga courses where we get fucking kupa truth of beach. Little fucking piece of shit will feature. I don i got off place. Of course i mean. That's obvious that way. In mario kart and being like oh. This isn't a real fucking talladega. I'm making the argument expectations but for price. Because that's the fucked up thing is. They're still building this willed on whatever the fuck they build the world's on where they could hand this to and child and go make golf course in this fucking engine the and they could and so it's not like there's a ton going into that is not a ten going into the mechanics the story quote unquote that we can get into his along tutorial. Like it's just not worth sixty dollars. I and i blame you guys for ruining sixty dollars with. Sorry again to play devil's advocate. We talked about it through the discord. And you're like is it worth sixty dollars. And i said it's a fully featured golf game. And i stand by whether whether featured goal okay whether or not stood. My subaru is a fully featured rally car. God let me explain myself whether or not the the The modes are worth your time or not. They are present right so like when when i think of a game when it's like you asked me that question. Is it worth sixty dollars. Like i guess. The the best parallel that i can make streetfighter five on launch and it was like what is available at launch online. You play online and there's like you. Can you can grind for costumes to. that's it. Pay a sixty dollars right. At least with mario golf like you can play speed golf. You can play regular golf. There's an adventure mode. There's an online mode like their speeches enough features in it. That i i would say like whether or not you enjoy fucking experience is one thing but you have to give them a little bit of credit. There are enough teachers that they worked on. So that's my point. But he's saying timing is relevant like there's no other gulf games because that's like going. hey is a poop. Sandwich with sixty dollars depends on. What other foods out there and this poof sandwich can be a poop. Doug or poop rep for a poop pita. Do you want it. It's sixty bucks you didn't. You didn't ask me if how how it compared to other other golf games out there like the news. Pga to k twenty one or whatever that's out like you would ask me. Is it a better golf game than that. I would have said. Fuck no play that if you probably get for cheaper on steam and his way better way better. But that's not what you asked me. He said it was dollars. Include some nuance to the question of sixty dollars. Other other gulf games on the switch yakov story. Where's everybody's golf because people like everybody. Golf is on a ps four. The last one. They made a mobile one but the last proper console wound is on. Ps worth that games actually really fucking good. That one was good. I oh yeah that one's probably you probably get that deal like ten bucks right now bro. I just usually. I usually i tell you what game is worth because everyone is our own values like right. You'll sometimes i'll be fine paying thirty forty dollars for game five hours long out care like worthy to me but with this on what's i started playing and i remembered our conversation with mid sounds not is not worth this is. There's not enough here but don't tell me about speed golf. I have not played it. It's fucking offer bucket. Yeah it's a poop sandwich. It's so it's like okay. So the the concept in itself like if you if you like conceptualize it in your mind. You take two things that i generally enjoy quite a bit. Mario platforming and gulf sounds great. But that they fucking screwed it they screwed the pooch man so basically what it is like the tea boxes enormous and like three to four people tee off at the exact same time and then the objective is to run the length of the fairway. Or wherever your balls landed from your first shot to your next shot as fast as possible right and you have a stamina meter Depending on what course you're on there's a desert course that the balmy dunes course or whatever. The fuck is called Where you have hydration meter that you have to mount monitor as well so it's like oh so as you're running you're like oh don't wanna get fucking tired out. I was like one of those survivors. Like it's yeah. No this is like if you don't finish your speeco fos nephew dehydrate. Which is just not relevant because in this game you can't hit a bad shot. you could hear. I've hit a lot abacha. Have you slice the ball. How do you even physically slice in this chain potty a shot you concur one prison idiot. You hit it in the wrong direction in the entirely your fault. That's they'll yeah. Bruce that's you picking shit direction and then the no other factors are in play direction. Generally speaking your drive it relatively straight in this game unless you tried to like really put some hook on it but even if you like this game you can change the direction of your bullfight. Like four times in your meter like it can fuck and go everywhere and you'd think that they would make a course. That was a skill that you would really need them oeste. No you don't if you just play like smart gulf. I shoot thirteen in this game. So yeah go ahead with the easiest level. Because i played a level that is pretty. Well then i played like the next level. And i was thinking about your thirteen hundred. I shot twelve over. And i'm like oh no i've never shot hova i in this game. I don't know how do of you play. All of them you played every course in the game. I've so well. I assume i've i'm up until in the story where you're playing the course. Way if you land jubal under a thundercloud you can't hit it further kazoo. Strike you down at the same place. Oh yes every up to their and shoot under on all of them. Okay yeah so. So there's there's that one and there's one other one that's in the snow the snow all man. But but no i mean speed. Golf is fucking. Caramel is so bad. It it takes away like i dunno golf it. i mean. it's a golf video game. I understand that like it's not like i'm taking what i would do out on the golf course tomorrow all but like there's something that box with me where it's like. It is like going against everything that you would do golfing where it's like. Go as fast as you can. And then kit to the ball and you wanna hit as fast as you can like. You don't want to think about it. You gotta just book and hid it man. Go and it's just like that's not what gulf is about. Golf is about like taking fucking time thinking about it. I'm not saying fucking take free fucking minutes between shots but like you don't generally wanna run as fast as you fucking can and hit the ball so so like that. Just sucks at the. The only thing i will say is like just read stroke. Play playing this game. it's fine. it's not bad it's not particularly it's not going to like knock your fucking socks off but it's not like horrible for i think the missed opportunity and i have not played a fifty fifty. Maybe so far. I haven't done any of the single player immediately as soon as it would let me stop doing the single player i was like i'm not doing this surplus eighteen unlock. You don't unlock the levels. That way. if you just play you could also by shooting under an lockable. Okay so nicole never find that out of the not like six under or something. The first hole like the super easy. What i played my course a shot. Twelve hundred open the next scores show twelve. I shot like seven or eight and it opened the next scores. And then i went to play the thing. Oh my god well where i was heading with. This is the missed opportunity here is. It's mario golf and you get like this meter. And then you have a special shot. And i don't think the shot specials that cool and i think it should be cool like the special should be fucking incredible yet. They all do different things as far as i understand. The old is like three different things that they can do so distributed between like way. Oh bowl lands can disperse everyone else's bowl so it can like fuck up. Everyone else's shot right. All the flight of the bowl disturbs what is in. Its paws all like the different some characters. Turn your bowls two shells so some shia santa's mario's you can't use it on the green and what it does is you will have zero you at the ball and it hits the ground and it will go a little further than normal il. Hit the ground and stop period which you know if you can put it around the green. Maybe that's That's okay but we're liking this. Mario game can't like it should be cooler something out like they've got a better ideas and yeah well like again going back to the fucking speed golf thing like imagine if they would've like implemented mario style like proper mario style platforming and like in order to get to your bali. I had to go through some sort of obstacle course or something like that. Like i want a special. That makes the ball go through all trees. Just like you're in the rough you can destroy. Shoot up through it and you're awesome. Glad that was a great is. That does the me special. Do that doesn't go trees. Like i think i have tried it though because in the fucking story at breaks boulders but then con posture and aspen. Maybe it does. I haven't tried it. I haven't either gonna speculate on it then. Wind up looks impressive. The result is underwhelming. Well this is the point right lake appeal like the game needs going back to everybody's golf. I hate calling it that because it's hotshots golf And they changed it for whatever reason in the last one. But that's what that game excels at is like. It's not trying to be just like mario. Golf is not trying to be like a proper gulf simulation. it's just posted to take the principles of golf. And then make it as wacky as fucking possible. I think that everybody's golf does that appre effectively. There's a lot of weird shit that you can do in that game and I played a shitload of that In the past and had a lot of fun with it so yeah overall lake. This is a disappointing game but Maybe we should talk about what we've been thinking about doing shit on the game for twenty minutes wants to come join the disc golf tournament. Come be disappointed with us. Hey we're making best of this and it might be you know we haven't really done anything like this with the community So if you guys are interested in this let's fucking do it. It's not like it's still dot. Its berkeley entertained. Go play eighteen holes in mario golf. It's just when you play. You're like oh. I think i think having like a terminent tournament format with like Listeners I think could be actually really fun. You know getting together and playing around and and getting a little competitive with it should be fun man. So fuck not. We're gonna try to nail down some dates and this'll be around. Based i don't know all the proper terminology for golf tournaments but struck playing no speed gall. Nosebleed golf izumi normal normal golf. But whether it's like reapply two rounds of eighteen and then Take the top four. Is it four. It's four people that can play in one game. So yeah so we talked about really like see how many people wanna play. I think we have quite a few so far. So we'll have groups playing and then the top four of that like wing of the tournament will then go on to the final round which then walked to play together. I or will. I don't know why i would think would be there. Mids will probably be there. But i probably will not be in the final round. I don't know. I mean it sounds like ms is going to win the whole fucking i kind of does so else. Too much pressure on. What do you play. Why would we g i wa. Luigi is one of my go-to fidora but Those scores i was doing with walla. We Who elson at bay with. I was picking with characters. Mario no luigi outgoing. Why remember it's okay. I put it on the spot while luigi. Wills my go-to yeah. Yeah yeah so anyway. If you have the game and you come and play some for some fucking gulf of this joined the guard. We'll be posting about it. The next week we'll start to do that. I don't know how long this will last. I don't know if the various crank out. And by the next podcast level winner or if we'll still be saying now on our going into the final round that's td lot mile gulf. Let's do it. Yep why don't we. Yeah let's take a quick break All right and we're back. Andrew been playing a game called escape. Taco which i think could really have legs and really take off here. You should check it out god q. Thousand time we talk about kharkov. What's the fucking what's that show. Everyone likes that. They do the music from due to the curb. Your enthusiasm. that's a luck. I'm gonna more to say later his this. This wiped as happened last week but i've been. I've been in their plant then their turns australia's not die killed. A couple of people escaping what he's trying to escape from thing. I wish easier to tell the maverick complained about this. Like when you're a scab and it's like asian killer the scarves and you're just like he can barely tell the difference yet for people who don't know this update added in what's called scab comma. Yeah and so skirving before now was just like oh i move. Everything including the playoffs scabs with a whole sort of lore nature rounded is like. You're supposed to team up and try find and takeout pm sees all just loot and get out and things like that. No one ever does that like no air. I the hundred hours in this game every time scab. It's like everyone just shoots other scab. Yeah yeah but the. I was reading the karma system can. If you're get bad enough it can be an hour and a half between your squadrons so yes. There's a couple of the penalty. fact is your scalp. Commerce escaped comma alters your reputation with fence the vendor and fences being a nonfunctional vendor rally or useless vendor for ever awful. He'll by the shit. Nobody else will buy if you have like broken guns and things like that but now pm sees that don't ensure the gear and die and that gear isn't taken out of raid by scab. Someone else gets listed on fence to people who have high enough scab break. That's interesting so if you're like a juice lord who doesn't fuck in in show you're like mid h k and your armor and all that stuff because used to killing everyone and you trade with someone and nobody gets your gear out. That gear gets listed for pretty good price on fence house. You know say so. Are they using the flea market as a reference because if it's more expensive than the flea market that it would be pointless it's gotta be cheap. I don't know the mechanics around the price of it but it's kind of just like it's like an arbitrage vendor right like it's data. Sell stuff that you wouldn't get elsewhere. Okay but also your Dictates what quality load out you get as a scam. So i ran into my first gav raid new ahead. Skaff comment hooda gunfight going round the corner popped the in the face drop my calmer and then died the pm see. He was fighting because he's obviously no way to tell what part of that fight arriving at or who. I'm turning the corner. I'm just going to turn jim. My friend who was scanning with me. Kill that pm. C which gives him positive skaff comment. And my neck's gav had like a pm. Should he fucking makharov pistol and his staff had visas and so like it. Just completely shifted the quality of gear. He can go into his scabbard. With and then i guess the downside is you start to really put time between us cav raids. If you're a dick scab so if you just shooting the scabs you don't get a scabbard frequently. Which for this wipe specifically is going to be important for a lot of people because they moved the flea market two little twenty which is a huge issue crippling for a lot of people. Because i how you build your guns. I mean that's let's say you build your wealth as well right like you could run out so people who are playing the game hot and one bill. They hide out. Find a hose. Say like a regular riveted hose. Whatever the cases or rubber hose that hose is worth like hundred and fifty two hundred k early wipe because people are trying to boost really need it and so if you have access to the flea market at level five what it was before they will ten or whatever you can sell that for something. That's so significantly higher than any little like gun. Saito arm that you'll pull out and sell to a vendor so it really was this ability like grow wealth at a low level to be able to buy things and i don't i don't i don't hate that at all i think. No it's a smart move. I think the thing is that like everyone was like it. Used to be ten. Why not make it fifteen. And as the test every wipes a taste rights or other push past the point and scale it back people there in beta. They're just yes wall exactly. Yeah but no. I think it's smart. The reality is so pistilli agai famous stream for talk of used to get all of he used to hit level cap and finish missions in forty eight hours off so he would do a forty eight hours awake stream and he would burn through the game that people most people don't finish in a wipe just to kind of be like you can do this. It's like it's easy if you know what you're doing. He is doing a capped at fifty day sabbath on so he is not stopping streaming sleeping eating showering taco ving as long as people. Pay him subs tour and his cap is fifty days but he has been doing that for five days now and he's not labeled city. I think this type of game can benefit from that. Slow slow progression. So yeah yes. I i agree generally but i. I still think that there needs to be an and maybe they've correct this Because i really haven't dug into this. This new wipe much at all. But i i feel like if you just getting shit on your not progressing like you're not getting any progression as far as a level goes right so like i've ran into a lot of frustration especially early on when i start playing kharkov where i was like. Why don't i get any experience. Like i'm not saying. Give me a level for dying and going in and dying but like give me some fucking experience and up to this point. It's like yeah if you think you get experience if you identify things you get experience that's all well and good but the lion's share of your experience comes from kills and that's probably the way that it should be like should get the most for killing other players for sure But there is this like if you're really bad at the game and this is not up whole handhold the game at all if you're really bad and you're new and you're coming into it like you might drop off and just drop the game entirely because it's like i played fucking twenty five raids and i'm still level two right and i just think that there needs to be some sort of way to like not necessarily boost but like every single time you go in or most times you go in like if you hit a certain threshold time threshold right And and yeah that that makes problems are time based is another time but it brings. Its own problems doing that. Because you can hide in a fucking bush and be a fucking asshole but like if the game contract e the your your movement saying like okay you were actually actively like playing the game and not just hiding in a fucking bush you get x. Amount of experience just for being in the raid. I think that that helps a lot because it yes. This is always going to appeal to like hardcore motherfuckers. That really really want that. But like you're shooting yourself in the foot ultimately. I feel like if you don't like have some things in place to like. Don't alienate your new players to get you but this is from games of fucking judas in terms of difficulty it is and it is for data and the dave team at battles state is similar in terms of being like. It's going to be hard the thing that i think so. Where it is unfortunate is like if you don't extract from aid which is common top players don't have above fifty percent survival rate or whatever you get like i don't even know if it's a twentieth or a tenth of the experience you had built up so even if you killed a bunch plays in that raid or whatnot if you don't extract and get out you get like my new show what experience you would get a few got out. I think that that should be scaled over time. Like you're saying like if you die in the first two minutes of their aid and you've looted stephanie. Let your experience should be minimal right. Yeah because even if they boosted every five minutes of save fifty minute rate like you get a little bit more a little bit more a little bit more survive or die. The kid who wants to waste fifty minutes sitting in bush be my guest Like if that's the way you have to cheese the system and you also dedicated to doing that. I don't k- nobody's going to optimize the game around that right like you can't yeah And that doesn't affect dude. Who's gonna survive his raid Still get out well. I guess it's like actively like it really boils down to whether or not the game will sink. Its its hooks into you and you become Invested in the in the loop right. because once you're invested in the loop. It doesn't really matter if you're getting shit on and Taking l. after l. after l. Even though sometimes you're like i shot that guy in the fucking head of that's gonna hassle. You know what. I mean You still are compelled to go back in your cell compelled to build another kit and go back in because it has its hooks in you My only thing you know talking about this is like it seems like they are on the right path. Like i'm not trying to say dumb it down. Make it easier simpler. I'm just saying like you know. Obviously they want to bring new people on. That's the goal right And sometimes i feel like every time i get into this. I'm like i like this. Because i've invested the time but i like put myself in the shoes of someone that was just starting and like going back to and the game had far less feature. You want i started to play it. There was a part of me. That was like i don't know th this. I don't know if i could do this like iso i can fuck and do. I don't know what i'm doing suck. I don't know what's going on. You know like so even a lot of frustration. I you just get that small wind even like when you suck were suddenly is like. Why did kill two scabs. And i managed to get out. Yep that's a winner and skaff. Ai that has some some shit to be desired. i think but It's very strong mix of either as you instantly. Yeah especially early game when you don't have armor on all you can ground at kona and the dudes crouching not looking at you statements ahead. I sat a scam out sir. Allied with with with with a sniper rifle. And i did. It didn't kill him and he ran behind a tree. He can see me as loved out of his reach of safe. I couldn't shown by the tree. I sat there. Crowds watching two minutes later. He's like survived. Encounter shows back out shot and killed him. I mean there's to be a to just behind the tree. Yeah also. I can't just skipped past how you said mohsen. It's not moisten so emotion in the leave me. I the person with the exit. He gets cold out for the way. I say things i was not fucking just fuck. I'm probably gonna have a lot of questions. I'm put apex of decided. I'm going to try to play this more than ever played it just to see where this falls. The last my parting gift for my my my questions here is. I don't like you go in years like okay. Let's you guys have the shop guys like. Hey you like this gun. A good luck and god. He's like cool. Thirty thousand rubles like okay. I have that in a can of squash weird a screwdriver. It's like can. I just pay you. Forty thousand rubles and not have to give you like fucking this random shit. yeah that's valid. They'll have like they'll have the weapon just for rubles and then like you can also trade for the gun right like so at least in my experience unless they've changed it like you get to a certain point like a certain level and the the vendors once you once you complete certain question then we'll just have the weapon and it's like you can always buy that for rubles or if you don't have the ruble's give me so fucking squash and a fucking marcus fuck lion or whatever her one time access to the flea market. I'll be able to work all that out right because all this. Hey i need a hard drive was a hard drive for a gun. Got all out with your secure container. Having some bodies is valuable because you can pull a tennis squash out and you bet and you'll never like be able to pull the ruble value out the guy played it for a gun never going to get over the fact gambling. Something is now called forever. Of course it is. It will always be dark skin out. Consider the people play this game in what they call hardcore mode where you don't get to spend money that's so like they will find batas. Yeah and so even for ammo and all that stuff. It'll be gear. You can extract with ammo. You can extract with and then bought a trades only know castrate. So this is another level of depth to the game that people use it. Full bodies are a good way early game to also know that like hey. I can go in with my scab. If i'm zero dollars and if i find like a couple of items that you can if you know where you're going like the tacit knowledge i have for this game versus somebody hasn't played for years is different but i can go in and find squash and things like that to come out with a gun. We going into find the equivalent dollar value to come out of. It is different All right it's got it's got some hooks me so i I'm going to keep going. Actually i didn't want to and he the finished the game of out next. I needed to finish resident evil village. I want to play tarkhanov last night. But i did finish residential village. Okay discuss yeah. Expose them stuff. So mid sorry i think we Made it a long time to start spoiled. Banged up big lady. You do not have sex with the big lady riot which right at the top. We'd get something out of the way. So i sometimes i feel like we're living in a simulation and just like the coincidences the happen way in a game and in this game there the previous game there was a girl named evelyn is. I believe the proper held her name. That was the girl evelyn in this game. Ethan winters has a daughter named rose. I have a daughter named eva rose to so everyone knows throughout this game eveline. They're basically trying to use your daughter as a conduit to bring heavily back. I believe right in the last scene. The the big bad specifically says. I need rose do bring eva back and i miss playing this game as with mike. My daughters ava. Rose abe runs like fuck. What the are don't know you groom to name your kid. Overviews of resident evil appearance. Just the genius behind. That's what it is nine hundred nicknamed the base. You just didn't know yeah. Ship this game so at the end of resident evil seven and when they were like rebrith back yeah and all of us were currently lie. Don't do that. Don't and i feel like they leaned into the why because he's such fucking shit head. Yeah he's the. He's the worst. But but i grew to kinda love everything about him in this game because it's just like he has no reaction or he doesn't certainly as react properly to anything like how that the number of times resource like what is going on yet. They find like one of the core. I mean literally the entire loop of the game revolt once you kind of get into it. Revolves around finding limbs of your fucking daughter has been dismembered in and put into jars joking about that. It's like i gotta go find her arm. I have to go find her legs. I gotta go find her head and it's just like it's just chill about is like i have. I have. I have roses. Had lead her limbs or body and like you pull up tablet brings up like what you're supposed to do. And it's like find rose parts since s just sanguine about as i know man you gotta go find these fucking parts of your daughter man like and i guess they're like and you find them. You might be able to like helper and bring her back as centrally but like for your fucking lake. No reaction whatsoever that you would expect. He's just like kind of taken aback at first and then he just like all right. I guess i'll just and go do this. When you re animated aleve on jetski from the veterans know ethan fucking dies and that is a a good thing. yeah it's a good thing is daughter survives and she's may begin to be in the future. Yes you see. There's like a a time at the very end where you see Ethan's daughter go and visit his grave. She's got the powers from the present evil therapy so you look at it from that perspective. I'm glad that you brought that up. Because it's something interesting not that its groundbreaking or different but for resident evil. it's pretty groundbreaking till like include a character that possibly is the new character You know the way that they allude to it might be the new character for the next game or the next series of games and it's like she's got spat powers and it's like now you're not just using fucking guns and knives and shit but you can use lil powers the enemy interesting. I mean i like this game a lot. I like this game more than seven. Just just to say but The end of this game part of the under seven is i was more excited for more resident evil or at the end of seven. I was like all right like it's done. They've kind of closed it and then the end of this game. You're like there's kind of some paths that this thing ago. Maybe this rose is gonna be cool. Maybe they do nick. Chris redfield in the game quite a bit mainstay of the series. They do something. I really like Really i guess the last level you control redfield and i really like it when you play through a game and you struggle and you have this week pistol and you shoot these guys in the head six times to kill him and redfield comes in with the army and you control him and all these dudes you packages struggle against you. Just walk down this hall. Just like judo drew. Just wrecking feels really good. It always feels good. It was a five to ten minute section. But as into it you have a yeah. You have an m. four that's fully automatic. And you're just shooting where we'll sip and you just wreck them a laser pointer which i believe brings the hammer of dawn from gears. Were down things just like. Yeah you have a laser that you hold at a certain point. And then it causes an airstrike dab in which is an awesome as well a crazy precisely because i laser pointed a dude. Stand in front of me and they just murdered. I know yeah technologies crazy. These days man crazy i. I thought that the i can understand if someone does not like this game as much as a last for certain horror yeah. I didn't that camp for sure. This game does is not a as scary. It's a little more action. Based i think the characters in this game are better than seven. I think they have more personality. Heisenberg awesome. jack was a good character. I didn't like hardly any of the other characters from seven. I liked his son. I don't remember his name on their trap kit. I liked him. That was a pretty unique. What on that one. But i you know. I the the tall ladies pretty cool. Not just taller has blades on her fingers. So she chops off your hand reattached with water. They explain that how that works. Finally you find out that Ethan's been dead since Seven and that's why you're able to attach limbs so yeah okay it all kind. They they explain it at the end. And it's like very rapidfire. I feel like we're okay. I feel like you could've maybe like alluded to this a little bit more throughout the playthrough of the game. But like it's all kind of at the end dude copy and paste. We said that exact thing about seven where we were like feel like they gave us all the story. The you didn't know what was going on in this game does the same thing you get to the end yearly walk into miranda the big bads like lab as just like yours. Fourteen things to read you all know everything that we couldn't figure out how to tell you it's like he did it again. I wouldn't read. That's that's the frustrating thing about the these games is like this like absolutely need to like bring it all back to Previous games lower rate like bring it back into the world of resident evil which is understandable because the game is called resident evil But it. I don't think they did a particularly good job in this game. Or in. Seven of kind of like fleshing out. Why doing what you're doing and connect that to previous lower and like the overarching story of resident evil. It just seems like tacked on at the end and my biggest criticism is that they make a standalone game. In the end they allude to like this larger thing and both games. Do it where it's like redfield like. Oh we gotta go here. Check this stuff out. we're not gonna checking it. Should i'm going right. You're gonna make some other stand alone game and then elude damore style. Yes so that would be my thing. Like i mean a lot of different series of done this in recent times. And like just wrap things up. Wrap-up be like this is the end of this arc of our story right and do it in a game and then you have a clean slate and it seems like they skip that step and they were just like seven and fucking village. Whatever just tired at the end like the up again. I really liked this game. But i also like to make at the beginning of the game. so what happened is mia so hopefully you. Both you guys saved me. So that's the canon ending so Mia and ethan live in a house with their with their baby. Rose and with a couple of minutes. Redfield shows up with the army. They kicked down the doors. Shoot the shit outta me at right in front of murder. And you're like what is going on typical. Eat chris chris. Why would you do this. Not here's like nothing you've never what's cries about like this but the thing is is there's a reason like is what we find out the end of the game. That's not me that was miranda skies. But chris who you presumably at some sort of interactions with was never dislike. Hey that wasn't your wife. Let me explain real quick instead. He's like hey meet the end of this rifle but knocks you out and you see him in future times. He's like you to stop interfering. And it's like chris you gotta walk it back you. He thinks he killed his wife. You still have said hey didn't do that like at the logic. Yeah yeah no. It's a really bad story but like when is resin evil had a good story. I like the story better than some of the others. Just because of all ends. And i'm like all right. Let's do it sure i get. I guess you know what i said about. The possibility of like where the series goes from here is interesting but again like just didn't really like to wrap things up and then just have a clean slate and do whatever the fuck you want. Because it's very clear that that's what they wanna do. And did it's worst gonna do whatever the fuck we want. And it's less about this like zombie apocalypse. Like problematic fucking virus that this company has been working on And it's more just about like where wolves we got a vampire you know like that's all it is so all right so we are fourth of july. Mids you start you start to think we've got a hell income up the bulls and michael. Yes here in court. Mance your year we did. We did dead space. We did resident evil seven right and it can be used have to used to tell us to play a game in say it's horror based and if you say tarnow that's kind of horror basis while but you know miss missed. No i'll fucking and goddamn here just return. Which probably starting certain talk about that. Don't he dokie. Literature club that apply. I've played it fits so you go down that road. That games four hours five hours long. It's going on switch which is weird sixty dollars. I'm not sure what it's like ninety dollars. It's free on steam. So yes there's an updated version that i'm pretty sure you can't buy on steam oliver. Yeah i don't know. Literature club is a game. That would really like to talk about a podcast and everyone. Everyone at the table has to played. Reichen literally say anything about avoided. Spoilers as well yes. I have annoyed spoilers. Maybe that's it out. Think about it. I think that a lot of fun. And we would maybe incurs dischord to go do it because everyone would have a grand old time talking and experiencing what that beast is cool. Jared halpern has seven. Did you did you navigate the waters. You get download you figure it out you transfer your save. Yup everything everything happened. Yeah yeah it took me ten hours cool. It was not a quick process There were some people talking about it in the discord earlier in the week and yeah it is not a good experience. Nada not as Streamlined or seamless experience really cumbersome in annoying However you get you get it done within I imported my say for whatever reason Wanted to check out some of the updates after reading a little bit more about what actually was in this integrate. The firemen issue seven. Integrate says the version that the yeah so The game looks gorgeous but it looks gorgeous on the. Ps four so like. I haven't had any like noticeable changes like it just looked as good. I mean i think it's running at sixty frames per second capped venos- wondering to play. I have it on a ten eighty p tv. Like when we like. Am i even benefiting our anyway so except for the sixty frames per second. Yes i did read that. It doesn't differentiate so like with a ps five if if you're hooking up to attend any p. tv you don't get better frame rates because of that resolution like it's always gonna be the same they don't scale that way. Which is i guess. Kind of unfortunate. Because that. I probably should have one hundred frames per second on that game for the resolution. Yeah anyway so. Did you play both dude. You just do the deal. See your to tinker around with. Yeah no i messed around with the base game You know imported my say if it was a you know endgame save so you can kinda kick around to different chapters and so i explore the chapters that i really enjoyed that i remembered enjoy and I think it's weird. That and correct me if i'm wrong but that this is the way it works like if you pick just normal heart from the chapter select screen it gives you the ability to just like bring over all your gear and your levels into like earlier chapters in the game and endgame gear and levels in like the first bit of the game. I was fucking shitting over everything. That's fun. yeah it was guitar. I was like man. This is great like one tap like everything. Just kill everything. So yeah did that a little bit. The and apparently there's a new ending in Integrate i read well at the. I don't know about I that would be cool. I think that there might be something at the end of integrate one and their original. I wanna will at the end of at the end of the youth e They go back to cloud and barrett and you walk on the street. So is that because that's obviously additional content. That has nothing to do with you. Where did you see that. I didn't see that finish jozy. Don't get the fucking credits is fucking crude. Miss is like four to five minutes of shit. I'll just go to watch on youtube So what happens so you probably saw up until you. If he's sitting on the back ciocca bobi unlike. Yeah she goes out into the wilderness. Which makes a lotta sense for where you actually interact with her in in torrential game so the reason that it's kind of cool because people that know where they're gonna take best because they were boy a loose with the lower because of what they did in the game. No one knows how much they're gonna jumped the track right. Well they're heading to town. Remember call. i don't remember the name of the town. It's town in in chronological order. So they're talking. They're walking towards the town so everyone's like well. We know where they're heading. It's exactly to where we expect to be heading at this point and they're just talking and there's just some exposition. It's definitely worth the tipping. Yeah well the fucking credits are so long dude and like i don't know i usually actually to be fair usually we'll sit through the credits But for whatever reason. I was just like yeah. That was fun. I had a good time But but to to just get like general opinion of the dlc. I thought a generally agree with you in every area. I thought that the it was kind of tough to learn her move set at first but once i got down i thought that maybe it was the most fun. Move set of any character in the game Aside from maybe cloud like. I really like Ups move set. I love being able to throw out the sure akin or the the star and then pump fucking magic damage and then like quickly on the fly be able to snap to the enemy very quickly while the enemy might be in the air for instance and like just a lot of options To kind of combo superchargers really fun and then sewn on While he might be like kind of a vanilla character overall i like the way that the combat system incorporates him. Because you have no like active control over him But you can you know synergies with him That's a pretty interesting mechanic that you didn't see in the The base game. So i like that. They did some some work on that Overall i thought i thought that Uv for my like my memory of the character from the original game. I think they did a really good job. They didn't phone this fucking in but it's clear that they spent a good amount of resources and time fucking working on this and It it's promising to to kind of think of. Maybe they had this plan all along. And they're like we're just gonna like layer this fucking thing man that's If if it's this quality yeah keep doing it. Well he's the next five fifty seven and then give me a little side missions because if or even before the next like proper chapter comes out like. Do you want for vincit. Because i highlighted in the previous the previous podcast that you've vincit or the two characters that are optional. fines in final fantasy seven. So you could do something with vincent because there's like a lot of weird shit that happens with both characters and they don't really feel anything in and the last thing i wanna talk about That's promising about it is coming from the perception of the the the original source material. There is a lot to be desired thinking back on wwe the interactions and what you understand about mutai and they're kind of relationship with chinois and like what's going on like an a lot of shit happens in the second half of final fantasy seven And it does a decent job of kind of explaining why the things are happening but like thinking back on it. There needs to be way more expert exposition to kind of flesh. All that out for to really resonate in the way that it probably should so this really gives them an opportunity and it's a perfect perfect example of this is like their little little things here and there that you fe- talks about In this in this. Dlc like up to this point you're like didn't know that you know. and so. I think they have a really good opportunity to kind of expand on this conflict between these two factions. They're gonna make it better. They're going to kingdom hearts. This and i'm not necessarily saying that in a bad way i really think that in another five years mids will be here and he's gonna be like which fossil has seven. I remind me over here. It's no faouzi. Seven dash four internationally integrated magic. And it's but yeah that's what they're gonna do but if the quality's there oak will. Yeah i mean i went back in Read and watch some videos about what Catastrophe and nomura kind of like wanted to do with this and like before. They even got the funding to do it. They were like we're not gonna fucking do this. Unless we are one hundred percent content and an happy with square inex- Willingness to just give us as much money as we need to fucking fully flesh this thing out and we're not going to do it until that happens. And this was prior to their ever being like any announcement or talk about this like at least in the public's sphere so like it makes me think that they will do whatever the fuck you want. You guys are gods here like do whatever the fuck you want and we're going to give you as much money to do it. And so that's that's promising especially your fan of this shit. Because i think it's really good you know i think. I think it's really really up to this point between the base game and the this see really good the only criticism that i would have of the up dlc as it's like you kind of exploring the same area and doing just similar things that that is in the the base game fifty percent of at least is skin yeah but it makes sense in the context of the story and i'm where they kind of took it But you've just fucking super charming fund character and yeah. I really enjoyed my time with it. And it's like bang it out. And i did all everything pretty much you put for or yeah i beat the entire thing and i enjoyed more of a. I mean yeah i mean. It's just the basic rock paper scissors system but it's fun enough like i was kind of hoping that there had been more challenged. You get these These pieces that are essentially factories that just create units and. That's really the the strap that i really employed the most which like. Oh i just get the factor units and then it just pump them out pump out problem out and i just record everything pretty much. The last fight is What's his bucket The dude from breaking bad Oh the bigs yet big the voice actors from breaking bad and kind of wrecked him and it's just like really want more this but also i don't. I'm camp final thing. I have played a couple of gone back in. May through a couple more chapters on hard and i really think that for the battle system. A comic kamikadzedead shines there. Because you get to those bosses you can't use items there's a lot of limitations hardest fuck and that's when you suddenly have to keep retooling retooling and then it makes the boss fights where like the initial play through like when the next one comes out Splayed normal whatever but that going back and playing hard. it's extraordinarily satisfying when you actually figure out how the flow and how to beat the boston. It's good stuff. I don't know if i'll ever. I bet i finished the hard way before the next one comes out. But i'm not like actively playing every week of just made i think months after seven now on hard so who knows. Yeah i mean Combat is so fucking fun in that game it is. I just love the variation of characters right like going back in and and just kind of like Scratching the surface Again after however many months it's been since we played originally. There's a lot of variation there from character to character that i think is pretty interesting like you don't like you don't necessarily have to play us. Cloud like you can play as barrett or an air it through. No i wish i could just play with uv the whole time. She's so fucking funded the totally different yet. You know. it's a pretty slow. I think july's pretty slow. I just is not yet owning. There's anything july there isn't a lot. I don't think there's necessarily a lot in august either. It and announced battle. Royal like apex this affiliate. We need something soviet drug So so there is the the Skyward sword remastered. That comes out this month. You play the first one now. I never played it. So why. I think i played a little bit of. I never finished it though because everyone shits all over it. So i'm just like it's not bad like it's not it's bad zelda game. Yeah it's not. it's not a bad game. It's a bad zelda game we all yet that's fair we also have The east attorney Localization two games that never came out people lose their shit about that. Yeah one of those. Yeah i played one. And i've got i've got both those games. That just highlighted pre-ordered so there's only two things that are coming out this month I will be getting so that i can think of. I did download. I'm actually gonna probably check out Disco liam finally win the The the final Re re release of the game. I guess they did like a lot of voice acting apparently or there was none. Yeah now there's voice acting. So i i've heard like lots of people that are really respect really like that fucking game and i know it's out of my wheelhouse in terms of like point. Click adventure. sounds like a fucking bad time for me but I want to at least give it a couple of hours to see. If i enjoy it so i might pick that up wiring. Are you bought it. So i might play it. I haven't on my steam as well occasionally like that game is probably out of both of your wheel houses and i think that both view both of you would show up with a lot of fun things to talk about. If you're playing now games fucking crazy. It's ridiculous it's doing things that came. Just don't do with like. I talked diesels. It wasn't even. It was a year ago while it was a while. It was long time ago. Because i played through. I think already. Thirty percent the dialogue options. You're playing just a drunk shicho like he's mess. He wakes up he's losses. God lost his badge and the year dislike. Hey have you seen my gun and there is like last time saw you are out there waving at the skies like i don't remember that it's very funny. I've heard people compare the world. It's like i guess final fantasy seven would be a good comparison to it's like it's just enough like our world but but different and a lot of different ways like i've i've seen people compare it to Dishonored where they like took like things that you would see in a normal world but then like layered on length. Thought you were gonna say ogden. Well you see people waving guns above their heads regularly and often Take it from me you just like. This is a bad my in washington boulevard. I am at what time is it. Midnight need to get the fuck outta here. Yeah so you're right. You're right So yeah. I don't know like i like that idea. It's i i i like when you've got like it's our world but then there are like twists are just like make it not exactly our world put it is comparable enough where where we're able to kind of compare and contrast short video just relatable. Yeah yeah yeah so Yeah we'll see. We'll see what happens with app. But that's really all i have on on my radar. You put it on steam. Yeah yeah i think sounds with is milking.

Mario Golf Raises the Question: What About Golf-Hims?

"We just lost her. Recording are part of it at least for the first time besties history. And i think this is a valuable opportunity for us to give each other some notes about how we could maybe improve. Yeah because our actors going nowhere fast. And i don't want to name names but chris you did like fifteen minutes just straight out of the blue collar comedy tour that. I don't even know that we can legally do like do that. I don't think that's fair. Use when you literally quote. All of larry the cable guy and part of jeff foxworthy's like i just wanna know why they have tracked hers but they don't have tracked hymns that's exactly like it's not pertinent to the conversation about mario golf fucking. Don't get me wrong it's fucking funny justin's busting up over there. No question people want to know about the games and the graphics and the features and how many points we give it. And i feel like fifteen minutes of blue collar. Comedy tour may be getting getting they make crackers but they don't make crack gifts. That's sounds like shit come. it's a doctor. i think. I know we're about adopt him. Yeah it's great by name is just background. Ended the best game of the week my knees mcelroy. Today we already did this. Name is christopher thomas plant and i know the best mario gulf of the week rest fresh deck is still in-absentia raising a new generation of rest fresh sticks as terrifying. That thought. Maybe we must soldier on to talk about the latest ingredients in home interactive entertainment as we are want to do here on the best of video game club that just by listening you become an official member. Congratulations whether you like it or not. Choice is ours and this week our choice. Well let's talk about a little game. Called mario golf super rush. Y'all meyer golf. Super ash is the latest mario sports game and is available on the nintendo switch and it makes one big wild choice which is what game no-balls gulf of the mind go where you have to be honest about where you're asked. What if a golf game is fast fast acting now chris even playing teasing this game for a while but playing it for a long time and i set. Set the table for us before we get into our our hot takes reactions. I should've known when i was teasing this that it might not be everybody's cup of tea because the choice that makes is a big one which is okay. Here's mario golf. You're familiar with it. You played it on the nintendo sixty four. Maybe or the gameboy. Advance this time. It's got a story mode a little thin. We'll get to that in a second but When you play golf now instead of hitting the ball and you know like enjoying the leisurely -ness of it you you act that ball of the tea in you immediately. Start hustling to the ball. Maybe you are racing against other players. Body checking them across the green Maybe you're racing against yourself. The greatest challenge right wow But if that is not a thing you like. I'm sorry because that's that's the game Except for multiplayer mode Which means people might not like it as much as i did That is not. That was not my problem with mario golf super rush. I actually liked the running around For one it's a brief respite from playing golf. Now listen i usually not listen my opinion about my golf super rush. I would not play this game if i was not required to you by the best. He's not a big fan sports. Superdome lie golf. And i don't even really love mario that much so don't listen to me but i thought the running around khan fun. Why not sure. It's i mean it doesn't feel great. In fact it really is pretty annoying across the super. Yeah i think and then a spurt right past. Damn golf ball right. I think the fact that you love the running speaks is more of a testament to how much you don't like golfing. I didn't say i love the running. I just said it's a nice break from golfing right. No i i mean so i like i said i don't have a big vocabulary with this sort of thing. Here was my. Here's my experience of it. Okay i it. Introduces a lot of concepts. That don't probably if you know about golfer. Play golf for implant gulf idioms. Don't feel like they're introducing a lot of concepts but it to me. A layman felt like the introduction a lot of concepts but for like. I mean hours of playing literally. The only thing i had to do was point at the whole with my ball and then hit it towards the whole and then eventually it went in and i got first place in the tournament with like. It's they're constantly talking about concepts like shaping your shots and backspin and all this this a bunch of gay. And i don't i haven't had the i haven't used any of it. I'm just hitting the ball towards the hall and then winning the tournament and then when there are like you get to some areas where you know elevation is an issue or you have to kind of go up and i don't know how to go up etc sometimes. We hit it in tornadoes. Sometimes that's a different kind of mode but like i. I don't know the. I just feel like the the additional parts of. There's just not a lot of depth in in terms of like i haven't had to use any of the the weird stuff i just kind of like you know. It's like every other gulf game. You hit the ball are sorry. Hit the button and the meter raises. And then you hit the button to stop the meter. You know pretty close to the top. Yeah there's a weird i couldn't. I played this game quite a bit. And i'm still not entirely sure if how many times you're supposed to press the button on the meter. You don't have to press it because there's this concept in like everybody's golfer hotshots golf called. What the three three touch golfing system right you press. It wants to start the meter. You press it a second time to set the power and then you have to sort of of match where you press it. The second time with a third click to set the accuracy. But i think that's automated unless i'm incorrect. So mario golf so the way it works in this game is you hit it once to start the brier like the bar goes out then you hit it one more time. That's all you do tapping it to set. How much power you're actually putting into that that'll swing a yours right then depending on how much you've kind of like progressed in rpg mode If you're using your your me right the meter will be broken up into like little bars like. Let's say there's four bars that meter a rule refill one more time in. Wow it's refilling you can aim laughter right in shape. The ball at those different points ukraine shape the ball so that goes left and then right and then left again around like a series of trees using the meter which is not necessary at all early on in the we we we need to stop for a second and make something kind of clear. This game has two components. One is the adventure mode and one is the playing. You know by by yourself challenge mode or online you know whatever the not adventure mode thing because i think that is by far the more successful part of this game which is to say the adventure mode for me was a huge letdown. The thing justin was talking about about the part with different elevations and maybe to shoot it into a tornado is a part of the campaign. It's like the second course that you get to and you do what is called cross country golf because they don't really just let you play normal gulf gulf a whole lot in the campaign mode you play. You know the speed golf or other variations on the second thing you have to do. Is cross country golf where which like results in you are dropped into this huge mountainous canyon region where there are nine holes and it's up to you. What order you hit him in their on different elevations and you have like thirty shots to do it and it sucks the moon right out of the sky. It's like it is is the antithesis of of fun for me because it is so easy to just like have one shot go a little too close to a mountain and then you are not getting up that that thing you get a re i do. You do get a second chance if you do one. That's gonna really mess you up. You could take a penalty stroke and and do the shot again. It's yes that's true is fun to do that. Nah fine my my my counterpoint. This stage is one of my favorite things in video games this year. And this is not being contrarian. I'm genuinely surprised. That i i guess. I expect people to have mixed feelings on it but this the way the stage worked for me was it felt like nintendo asked what if we took breath a wild and we tried to make a a gulf idea around it so for me playing it. It was like a big puzzle. Game of okay. How do i go through this course in as few strokes as possible to hit all these holes and on top of that Liquor didn't mentioned his point against it. You have a limited amount of time between each hit so you have to be kind of careful like oh. I could hit it up this mountain but driving. I can make it up that mountain under the amount of time. I need to get to the ball So it's not particularly it's not particularly deep though right because the answer is yes you just run two tornado which is like an elevator. That will just put you up on the next level. It's not particularly strategic. And that's like my problem. I think with the campaign mode overall is justin was talking about like the first couple courses when you're playing against a i. They are universally really shitty golf like really very bad and has not hard to trounce them. And then you get into this cross country mode which is annoying but not particularly like you know difficult and then the next mode is like kind of a take on speed golf but instead of racing. It's time you have a water meter because you're in the desert and your water runs out. Was the difference between that and a clock running out now. it's it's it. It has a weird lack of like depth and polish. And i like the most surprising is like a lack of character that i you know maybe so fair to compare. Yeah go ahead. Yeah yeah. I i wanna say one more thing about the story mode and then i think we can talk about the the other stuff. Because i think that'll be more fun but did you. Did you get to the point where you meet warrior in while luigi. I haven't gotten to the part where you meet. Mario and luigi okay. So that's when the story. The story like actually kicks off. I don't. I'm not saying this is like a once you get there. You'll like the game because he won't if you're not with the at this point you're not vibe in with it but it takes a truly bizarre turn in kind of like the final half or third it decides that there is a there is a story there are antagonist there is a magical sword it again if you are finding with the game at the beginning you're like hey this feels like this is like this is for me but the story itself kinda whenever. I have some patients because i do think again. If you like the if you like the game it does end up. Rewarding you in the long run. That said. let's talk about both like the the you know normal exhibition mode ended. Y'all get a play the battle mode the battle mode is the is the highlight for me. I just i don't want to. I do not want to understate my disappointment in the in the campaign mode. Because that was the thing i got excited about because Advanced tour is still my favorite mario sports game because is like that full blown. Rpg and i heard a lot about super rush. And it's like it's that baby. It's back and i feel like fucking charlie brown with the football because time a new mario's but when ace's came out the tennis game people like it's got its own. Rpg campaign mode. I was like yeah baby but it what it wasn't. It wasn't quite that that said battle golf rips ass valla. Golf is actually pretty fun because it's a battle. Golf is essentially that cross country idea where you have like a big very colorful neon course and you're going against other players and if you make if you get your ball in the whole the whole disappears for everybody else and now you're shooting for for for a different whole racing across this course bumping into each other knocking each other's balls out of the way the the rounds are mercifully short so if you like really start you know being terrible at the game. Don't worry about it. It'll be over very soon Battle golf is like the pinnacle of of what super rush attempts to do. The adventure mode has rpg. In if i could Also just pile on their It's so thoughtless like it's so it's kind of embarrassing. I think that it's in there. It's just like which of these do you want to do better. I think the only thing that makes any sort of sense is to just increase each one each level. In-kind you know to keep yourself relatively. Because who knows. I don't know sir god d one in strength and one in finance. It's why like us. It's so i it always kills me this. Rpg with sports games. Like i don't know. I'll get better at it. I guess are. Won't you know what. I mean and make the challenge better but like why would you. Why would you artificially limit what my character could do. In terms of like a sporting challenge. It doesn't make any sense. I i like that. What i don't like is this does the thing where sometimes if you level up one stat and makes another stat. Go down and it's like the fucker we do here. Why i can hit the vaults where i'm saying sense to even just try to keep them all relatively even okay. That was the last dunking we will do on the campaign mode. The the regular playing golf especially online with other people is is far. More successful is far more fun. And i found myself really disappointed in this game until i just gave up on the campaign mode which is unfortunate. Because you do unlock some of these single player courses by playing the campaign mode so you do kind of have to suffer through it if you unlock all the all the courses but yeah i think. How do you feel about just playing speed golf. Have we really explain what that means. You're just running you don't you don't zip to your ball automatically after each shot you have to run to it and you have a stamina meter and you can do is every character has sort of a special dash ability that they can do. And there's like hearts that you can collect to refill your stamina meter. You can draft behind other players while they're running so that you can like their juice without burning your own stamina for there's there's there's a bit of depth tube to the adventure mode and so i don't i feel like it never really made that much of a different. I don't think it was very impactful to i was doing. Yeah it did. Y'all play super stick man golf. Yes that was. That's the main point of comparison. I have for speed real time battle golf. Yeah you're explain what that is for people. Sure so super stick main. Golf is a two dimensional golf game where you have like you aim your shot and then you hit a power meter and then you're ball goes and you can shoot special shots who's like sticky shot where you can stick to walls. There's a bomb shot that knock other balls away whenever it lands But the your success is not measured in strokes. It is measured in time. How fast you can get to the whole. that's it. it's just a full blown race. Strokes do not count at all. And so i think the comparison here is apt. It's three d. obviously And it is just as chaotic as stick man gulf got. The running is a little tedious for the running to the ball is once you do it. I played a few rounds online. And after the the third or fourth round i was kind of sick of running to my ball. I i will tell you what i did like about it as somebody who's kind of gulf neophyte. Besides just the break from playing golf running through the course gave me a much better idea of the scope of it like grounded me in what was happening a little bit better. You know what i mean like. I had a better. It wasn't just a fixed point on a map in very abstract. Like i really got a better sense of like distance in the world right so like you're running to a driver shot you get a sense of like this is how far i hit it with my driver. Like is what that means. And i think that actually. I don't think that was the point of this but for me as somebody who doesn't really understand a lot of what's going on grounding it in that way of like actually taking you physically make you go to where you're going to hear next. Shot made me like like brought me the experience more because it wasn't just an abstraction of parabolas yet the thrill for me was. I mean there are only happened a few times where i be competing in i would you know whiff and shoot something into the bunker and i would have to people in front of me who are on the putting green and have all that Tap the ball in. And i you know effectively just like sandwich it out of the bunker under the green into the whole literally you know seconds as second before they put it in steel a win out from underneath them feeling rules. The problem is and this is i guess. Kind of the irony of the game. Is i feel like the super rush. Modes are meant to make the game more accessible in fun and exciting for you know non golfers but if you don't know how to play golf games pretty well you actually earned an extreme disadvantage because you're having to make decisions in actually know the controls very well to be able to do that if you wanted just sneak in. i think. that's the the the appeal of everybody. Not everybody's golf sorry Super stick man. Golf is because it is to d because you just tell cheer ball because it's touch controls even if you don't know a lot about golf or even just the controls of the game you can kind of pick up and play and have those competitive moments right away and i don't think that's true at this game and for what it's worth. I love golf video game. I enjoy the sport of golf. Love ago. I love a gulf but the golfing in this game is good like the actual golf controls like once you learn how to you know later courses have like lots of hazards on them. So you do have to sort of shape your shots Learn once you learn like how to put backspin or super backspin on on a shot and win to properly use that wind to sort of like aim against the curve on the shot gauge. If you're shooting in like if you're shooting out of a bunker or you're shooting on like a hill or something wild like that. The gauge itself is curved. Which illustrates like. Hey even if you shoot this shot really well it's gonna hook pretty bad so trying to counteract that and learn like mechanically like the golfing itself is is is quite sound and i found myself really enjoying that more so i eventually came to enjoy just straight up more than speed golf because i feel like speed golf. Is it got a little gimmicky for me. Pretty fast y'all. It's i think we did it. I think we talked about. We talked about mario brush. I think our conversation batches through these out there. If you're unsure of this is for you holy moly. I cannot remember nintendo game running the spectrum of reviews quite like this one so checkout metacritic and read a whole bunch of different reviews. I would also encourage you if you have if you have a playstation device to check out. Everybody's golf. I really think that that is the current sort of gold standard for what mario golf super rush tries to do with the rpg easiness of it or clap hands golf. I said yes. We'll also we'll also we'll also get you there. I enjoy my time with it. But also i don't think i'm gonna play it a whole lot more straight up because even though the gulf stuff is fine and it's fun to play online there's also not a ton of content in the game. There's not like a ton of different courses to play on. There's there's it feels a little Content light a bit. But you know who knows. Maybe they'll drop some more more stuff in there We've got more stuff to talk about more games more fun. More discourse more growth a lot. More don't act like we don't have more to ram dealer in two thousand twenty one. It's finally okay to talk about our mental health. And that's why we're excited to be sponsored by better help.

E. l. p. dot com slash festus. Okay i wanna run. Something passed to you. I feel i intend to has been kind of. I don't know you know is just doing the same thing over. And over with these mario sports games i like. I've seen a lot of mario golf. We've seen a lot of mario tennis. We haven't seen. Mario extend himself into new hobbies and pastimes in sports. So i was hoping that you chew. Could you know maybe pitch me. And you know reggie and And everybody else that nintendo even though registered intendo on some sports that would be good for mario and friends. Well you are ignoring mario and sonic at the olympic games. Which i went out to dave and buster's this past week 'cause i was looking for activities for my easily bored four year old. And they had that arcade game there and watching. Mario's beautiful body goes just soar through the water like like a moustachioed dolphin. It just drives home that there's nothing this little guy can't do. My son of course did not want to play his mario. He did play his metal sonnet. I'd so i think that he's his skill. Set is a lot more diverse than you're giving them credit for you know he's played basketball with the extremely good weirdly square inex- titan basketball was that on. Ds what's what's system. Had the the mario square basketball game. Oh god this is gonna drive me crazy anyway. They couldn't matter less. I gotcha okay man. This is this is not going to be funny is just gonna be great. Just like a great idea ultimate. Yeah i mean ultimate. It's right there. There's a ton of and don't say ultimate frisbee. Don't you dare me. And all the real pros call. Ultimate ultimate is Where you're running around like that's a great fit for mario tossing the The fun disc. That's great and then you're like running to catch it and you can use like super throws and super catches and then there is also different super runs. You could do. I mean come. On ultimate mario ultimate. I don't wanna poop on your idea but an alternative. What about mario e. sports. What does that even mean. Is that aid. It's watch you just play overwatch. But you dress up as mario what but you could. What if there's like a border around the screen and you could just see mario's like the like it's in vr. And if you look down you see your weird bus sash gloved hands but you are playing the game overwatch That would be good. Actually that may more. What are the other sports. He's done basketball. He's done baseball game. What by the way. It was mario hoops three on three. And you could play like viva black made and like all kinds of weird shit. I gave him kicked ass. Mario his bold obviously missing stuff like lacrosse. You know rugby. I don't know if he's done hockey. He's not done hockey. I well okay. So he probably did. In one of the mario sports mix oh in the winter olympic games. Yeah right. That's what i was thinking of. Also there's not much jumping in hockey in fact they'd kind of discourage it because you have Swords on your feet when you go. Mario hockey google like you mean mario lemieux right. You couldn't possibly we all the call them. Mario hockey racket ball. I mean there was that virtual boy game sure rajabov did do those. I think the answer is ultimate. I think i you know like ultimate mario ultimate is a very good idea. Oh by the way ultimate fighting championship. And don't say smash brothers. I want that real shit. Feel the the mustache sweat being flicked in your eyes as you go for a huge spin kick. I wanted to get nasty. Like those. Like super fucking funny like new grounds. Flash games was like luigi polluting. Dude i need to say one other thing about mario go first off checks in the mail from nintendo. Icu ultimately ultimate is actually extremely good idea. Let's see some box art. Let's get it out there. Let's crank it out Mario to nintendo makes it takes eight years to make zelda in three months to make a sports so it does make a few make a coming out and got ultimate one of the complaint. I had to lodge sometimes after you finish your shot you have to for just a few fleeting moments watch other characters. Finish their golf. And the fact that i have now had to spend literally any of my increasingly fleeting life. Minutes watching fucking pink yoshi finish. His gulfs segment is absolutely of a moral crime rural rooting for your opponents. Because you just. You're tired of watching them. Play golf without you and you're like just sink it just fucking drain that bucket from that like that. That thirty yard chip in baby just bored button when you're golfing by yourself. But not when fucking pankios. She is golfing. And you're watching him gulf out in front of everybody. Anyway we asked you for your thoughts on. Mario super super rush. I'm opening up the mail bag. Let's see what we got From aj we got. The game is good ag. You're right. i'm so glad to have somebody on on my side. Winston the current rosters outfits. Do you like the best. I'm a big fan of warrior. And while the we'd use pointed shoes but bowser juniors whole fit is a ten out of ten for me any choice other than mario and luigi is wrong because warriors also got like a weird cowboy hat on. That is so fresh. That doesn't make much sense but is so fresh. I had eight thousand gold coins. Confirm how to spend a damn one of them. I'm still wearing the exact same. Get up more. When i started the game. There's no place to buy clothes. that's nice one person. There was not that. I mean i ran around the whole stupid building. I found someone that would sell me a bunch of different themed clubs which was great because for me seven clubs is never enough because i have real specific needs with each different one. I know what they all do right But there i couldn't find where to buy clothes. I'm sure you candidate thousand gold coins on. Never play this game again. Here's an interesting question from josh. I tend to strongly associated feeling competent at a game with enjoying it. If i feel. I'm mad at it. I struggled actually enjoy the game as i get older. This seems more common curious. If you guys have experienced similar anxieties especially as you've age. I think this is very because tom. Good at the game. Therefore i like it but you two are bad at the game. Their offense bullshit. I'm great at the game. I think i am the first course that i did. I got like an eight under with a minus eight. Because it's it's not that difficult. I did win that. I won first place like i got first place and i comfortable back from margin and i did enjoy that sensation of like winning at it now i but i mean now as i look back on like what did i enjoy about. That is just like beating cooper or something I can kinda see the with this. Although i will say that like i actually have kind of had the inverse where if a game is frustrating in a way that seems like possible right. I'm actually much more susceptible to incremental improvement then. I am like overwhelming success. I if the games like just doles out a little bit where it's like. Whoa you made it. You know five inches farther in your run like that will hook me a lot more than overwhelming success. Especially if you have the scrutiny of other players if it's an online thing that is why i think destiny and final fantasy fourteen like hooked me so much. Is this feeling of like god. This high end. Ray looks harsh shit but you do stuff that kind of walks towards that and you see the trajectory that can get you there and overcoming that that anxiety is is the most rewarding thing i feel like games can do to a player. And so yeah. I'm in the same boat if something now that said you know i will buy a A horrified stick and then try to get into streetfighter five and then play a couple of matches and be like fuck this. Because i don't see that trajectory forward so i am right there with but that that can also be a very an intoxicating experience. Also i've got two final questions. But i'm going to put them together because i think they pair nicely. The person's is for matt who said plante said in his review that he would turn to other golf games for standard gulf mode. I don't have any golf. Games is super russia. Good option if. I want to spend most of my time playing standard golf mode. Which games do you prefer for. Traditional golf cheers. Boys loved the show. And this one from shannon. I'm a big mario fan. But i've never gotten to the golf games because i've never actually played golf. Are these games still find to play if you have no. Irl gulping skills I think we can kind of answer those both at the same time which is soup russia's. Probably not the game for you from either of these people. I really would recommend everybody's golf on. I think it's ps four. I don't know if they've done a. Ps five version of it. But it's like it's cheap now. It's like twenty bucks and it's so deep and has a great character customisation thing. That's what we made got. I can't remember his name. We did an episode of monster factory with it. But there's like a ton of very very fun stuff and it's just you know it's clap hands. So it's they've been doing it for an eternity and have gotten it extremely tight so for me like that or or no joke. Advanced tour for gameboy advance if you can find a copy of it is probably my favorite hand-held golfing experience if you've if you've never actually played golf for just have no interest in it. I think golf story which is also on sculpt stories. Great yeah it's trudy they get wild with it too right. They do have like a frisbee gulf mode that is not as successful and they do some like silly many game stuff. But it's it's it is a very good golfing. rpg. Yeah heavily heavily. Influenced by the gameboy advance Mario golf game but are available to download. Unlike the margaret. Cough gameboy advance game. Which is a pretty challenging to find. If you don't wanna spend a ton of money buying a hard copy or emulating it right and limp. Mummy just say to answer the other question is if it's fun if never played golf hey everybody this griffin you know me enough now to know my vibe and so it may come as a surprise when i tell you golf. It's really fucking fun. It's there's a lot of there's a lot of trappings around golf. I think people see it. They see the visors. They see the polos they see the pleaded pants. They say. this isn't me. Golf is a game where you use heavy stick and you hit a ball with it and you try to get it to go in a whole. That's all it is. That's all it is that can be for anybody. It's an and guess what it's fun you go with some friends and you just try to hit balls into a hole for a place to start pitching putz pitching where it's at baby. That's where that's all you need. Pitching patsy only need a pitching wedge and a putter and like small golf somewhere between putt. Putt and big golf and it rules. They usually have fun beverages Tasty foods since the light. What else are you playing this week. Yeah i got. I got more into Rogue book That's a very good one of those. They're updating it a lot. Which i dig is probably a little overpriced. I which i realize now but Do you think that that one would be conducive for like ipad remote play or is there like for for for pc games. That are mostly sort of like that. You play mostly with the mouse without having to fuck around with the keyboard like remote play on. An ipad is super doable. Is it like that or do you think that it would be too. I don't see why it wouldn't be. I mean i don't. I don't i don't think so. I think that'd be great. i mean. give it a whirl. It's it's very cool I also played a little bit of luck. Be a landlord Which i we all started like going. All these like great reader suggestions Let me landlord was one of those. Where it is a It's a great idea. It is a slot machine game where after each play. You are have a choice of symbols that you want to pick That you can pick from and then you add one of them to your slot machine and you gradually fill your slot machine with the symbols that you have collected And the the interesting thing about it is that there are a gillian different. Combos basically that you can sort of ease your way into right so just to give you an example you can get a flower and on each spin. Flower is worth one. Gold coins of flour comes up at one goal coin. Cool okay but later you can find a son and if the sun is adjacent to the flower then you'll get five times the value and sometimes you'll get a water droplet also that you can put the if it pops up next to the flower than it could double the value the flower. Which if it's next to the sun can can double it can. Can there be quintuplet. Something like that And there's tons and tons of different combos like that and you're kind of like adding symbols hoping the you get the one that's gonna turn your Board into like an outrageous Money generator It's very cool. it's a little. There's no persistence is the only sort of thing. So it's like while it's very fun core idea after you beat it. It's sort of like i mean. There's not a ton of story. There is a very strong anti-capitalist Undercurrent there's like a anti-capitalist group that is helping you to thwart your landlord with Secret items that you can use to remove symbols or or get another chance of symbols or whatever but it's a very interesting idea and i'm really interested to see what they were. They go with it. I i just started scarlet nexus. Which is we're going to talk to you about that next week. I was at the game for next week. Okay i'm glad i got a jump on it it's Then i'll say pretty cool so far. That's a cool idea. He it on playstation five. Yeah check me out. I finished off a game called omori. I don't know if he's talked about it on the show before it is a Is a god almighty very stylistic kind of like rpg maker style rpg somewhat reminiscent of like under tail but extremely troubling with extremely like with with some truly horrific imagery and Genuinely scary stuff. That happens not not not for the faint of heart amaury but it has some. It has some cool ideas. That was a big fan of not not the feel good game of the summer. I'll say that. I mean what can you expect. That's amaury all right. All right all right the game. I really wanna talk about i. Dust it off the old xbox one and the connect because him henry. You know kind of enjoys the games that we played on that. I think i've talked about the rabbits game before. I wanna talk about a game that we've been really into called fru you know about fru frou is a platformer and i played it at e three a long time ago and completely forgot about it but i was looking for connect game because we just played it back in in fru one. You can play it with one spell this are you your silhouette a yes so in the game you can play it by yourself or you can do what we've been doing. Which is henry. Does that connect part. And i do the controls part. You have a little a little girl wearing a fox mask who runs through these different environments and you can use your body which shows up as a silhouette in the world to reveal platforms for the character to run and jump around on You can make platforms sort of disappear. Sometimes it is a puzzle platformer essentially where you have to use your body and the controller in tandem and. I'm always on the lookout for games that i can play with with. You know my four year old son who doesn't like you know using two analog sticks kind of like beyond his his ability right now but holy shit. It's so much fun. Having him just like scamper around the room trying to make bridges for for my character to jump around on and we were. We were cackling laughing playing this game. So if you wanna play a twenty sixteen. Xbox on connect game revealed at twenty fourteen eighty three right. I got the pick for you. Know it's fun i like i. It has made me think. Hey man was the connect maybe just a little bit ahead of its time discuss. Probably not christie. Been planning anything else. Yeah i've been playing more the legend of zelda breath the wild maybe yeah yeah curse living in a parallel parallel reality. Where he's like. What is talking about this. I i won't spend too much time on it. I brought it up last week. Other than to say i haven't really gone back and just played a game that i enjoyed In a long time just because you know we do this show every week and there's also just the stuff that we do at polygon So it's rare that i make time to go and replace something and what a pleasure you know. I mean this game especially knowing how it works knowing how cooking works knowing just kind of like what ordinary wanna do things in In also honestly just being able to do it at my own pace Win this game came out. I i felt like i just blasted through it to a point Because it was like. Wow i just need to consume this to be part of this conversation now playing it where it's like i know but he wants to talk to me about this. I am playing this just for myself. it's just hitting in a different way and i just adore it. It is it is wonderful which is not new information for anybody but Yeah i encourage people to to give disa- try not not specifically breadth the wild but if you have older game that you remember loving but you haven't played in a long time maybe revisit. Cool all right. Hey folks thank you for listening as chris. Alluded will be back next week with Scarlet nexus But You know until then keep it. Keep it real. You can fall twitter at the best east pod you can subscribe and review in rate and share it with everybody That'd be that'd be sublime. Thank you in advance for doing that. That is going to do it for us for this week. Though so until next time be sure joyce again next week for the best because should the world's best friends took the world's best games besties.

Nintendos February Direct: Will there Be More Zelda News in 2021? - NVC 548

"And welcome to nbc ends nintendo. Podcast this we are talking about the nintendo direct. The first one really long time of course and also there has to be more zelda news this year and of course we're gonna be talking about moore. I'm your host keyser freedus and this week. I'm joined by brian. Alto low pair. Snyder lou and zachariah ryan here specifically i in spicy takes high high high. I mean don't set me up that way so bad. I think we're gonna have spicy takes this week so it's fine but it's been a while and i'm glad that you're back. Yeah it has been a while. So i guess the first thing we need to talk about of course is the february nintendo direct. It was a fifty minute long one. We got a lot of stuff in it. Started with zubay chronicle twos pirated mithra in smash learn splatoon. Three mughal super rush and of the scoured sword h d. There's a lot more. But i think those were the biggest announcements and i wanted to ask everyone on the cast here and also you at home. What was your favorite announcement. Did you have a favorite announcement ended. Yeah mario golf was for sure. Sorry i didn't mean to cut go ahead. Yeah mario golf was like by far and away the best thing that i think that they showed i played just an obscene amount of mario golf on the three s. The last mardi golf game. And i'm so stoked that has a story mode. I think speed golf looks ridiculous. Like that's going to be such a like a real friendship killer. I'm excited for that game of nice like whoo when they announced it so yeah. I'm stoked that. I think it's gonna be great. I think that's the general consensus among. I think a lot of us are more excited for mario golf than arguably the bigger announcement which was Platoon three. But i guess we're just all on more so Mario sports fans even though i know that the march sports games have regularly sold significantly lessons. Platoon says between threes. Definitely nintendo's biggest game if they announced i soon based on sales but i know plenty of people will probably pick up. Mario golf yeah. This one seemed More tangibly reach splatoon three. I feel like you know it's gonna be a big game but it's it's so far away it's like twenty twenty seven years long and twenty twenty five years long so i'm happy to get released dates for games this year. Especially because there's sort of been this question mark over what does this year look like nintendo And this is going to be like this is exactly why you buy a switch is for you know to watch. Mario and his friends compete and yet another sport that they're mediocre or good at. I enjoy so this was that. Was that your top one. I- weirdly had top one. I think this was like going out to post restaurant where it's like a dozen little things to eat but none of them really like amazing but you leave vaguely satisfied. Gotcha yeah it was. I get that split tune is just so but to me. That was still my favorite announcement. I unlike the zanna blade. Piran misra Revealing the beginning. Especially when you don't know it smash right. It's always fun to get that to that moment. Like our streets right. But i didn't see in the stream that didn't have that smashing interest green at the beginning they like the trailer starts with the cross but in the livestream it looked like they were gonna go into some blake. Deal senior or something. Yeah right now was built around like fake outs. So many for me. It was just platoon because i just like having the confidence that there is a plan that supports nintendo online. Splatoon was just the biggest unique success on identify formula at the games. Just the series. Just really really good had so much fun with it and so just seeing You know one of the inklings with a dumb fish friend was just a a nice little trade than than i love the. I always loved the train scenes when they're waiting on the train in the just dislike weird fish dude in the front that name. I'm really excited for that. By was the overall was a little bit of a flat direct. Some of that is the build up more than one point. Three million people are watching just a new Which is huge numbers. People are starved for for switch news and directs and so he was if you look at all the different components of it. There's some good stuff in it but it didn't make that kind of big impact right. What do you. What do you think about the fish buddy pair. I love the fish buddy. Great food live fish check. We're assuming that's a game flail amend right like a like a helper in the patent. It's doesn't want a little who doesn't want a little fish pal. You know everyone wants to know. I think that's very nice. Every single one of our coworkers loved him and want a plenty of him immediately. Shot slack being like. I want to kick this guy. I was like wow issues here is by the way it was. The cool thing about tune is the moment. The music plays splatoon. Its story they really created a soundtrack that can only be splatoon. I don't know any music. That sounds exactly like that. Well i think most music like most contracts for video games comp- comprised with like sounds of various animals gurgling water. Like there's a lot of zik weeks. Yeah that's great I i will say. I was a little surprised. Sort of kind of flat and drab. This game looks so far. Like i don't know if that was a compression thing to stream but it doesn't seem to pop in the same way i think they're going like sort of more muted backgrounds which will make the colors pop more once. The paint starts getting spotted everywhere but a lot of it looks very sort of distortion which is little odd like. I wasn't really expecting that sort of level of tones browns and great like it looks like splatoon or playing on a dilapidated gears of war level from mid. Ps three gen. I think the comparison that i saw a lot was like splatoon borderlands like it looks. Sorta like post apocalypse vibe happenings. Explorer lands blurred lanes. I also think it's just really really early and they haven't done anything yet. Right like frame rate and some of the effects work. I'm sure is going to be later. We're in february announcing a game for twenty twenty two so i also wanted to mention. Didn't they say they were only talking about games in the first half of this year. That was just a blatant lie. I got one more board border. Loons saloons good. Yeah i think. I think this direct was supposed to be about the first half of twenty twenty one or like at least forward into through the summer of twenty twenty one because we we did get announcements through august and things like that but look i think after five hundred and thirty days of known nintendo direct after eight months of no official direct. They needed something big. And so two ts splatoon a year out. I think they just they had to tack that onto the line. There is this other thing coming. I will say and i know that there are some another announcement to get in here but like the thing that the spicy take that. I wanted to put out there. That that i warn you guys about. Is that like i think. This is one of the worst directs that we've had in a long time like the only direct like it's such. It was such a disappointment to me and i'm not the kind of person usually after every nintendo direct. I'm like there is something in there. That i loved and like yes. Mario kart mario golf great but after such a long drought of official nintendo news. No like big nintendo direct. This one felt so lackluster. And i wonder if they if they hadn't just kept it to like mario golf splatoon three and skyward sword hd and some of the bigger announcements and had a twenty minute direct if it wouldn't have been more project triangle strategy like if it wouldn't have been more impactful or or at least something more in line with. I think what fans are expecting rather than all the stuff that sort of padded it out. Because yeah when you announce that you've been gone for nearly two years and you're gonna have a fifty minute direct and people know that there's the thirty fifth anniversary of zelda and metro-wide looming in the distance like. I just don't think that they set themselves up to win coming into this direct and it's sort of baffling to me that the team there is like this is what we have to present after this long of an absence and i really wonder if kovic has hit production hard enough that that release dates have slipped to the point where they reached this point in like. We have to do a direct about something. What can we show now. That is you know like at least we have a timeline for because to me. This was just like like months and it was like now. This is fine. You hinted at something really good there. I think that this could have worked better as i like. Sort of a small set of more compartmentalized presentations. They jammed all the first party. Stuff into like a twelve minute video and put it up. One day a surprise that would have been awesome. I think that would have been well received. I think the fifty minute runtime hurt this thing because people you know i i look. We always say to people. Don't go into the same with the craziest expectations in the world. But i think when you see fifty minutes. It's the first direct in year and a half or two years or something like that. You're you're gonna fly off the head. A little bit expectation wise. I don't think it needed to be this long when they could have been like. Here's an update on some of like our third party studios. Here's a bunch of indie games coming to switch or here's like some surprise ports. Here's our first party stuff. If they had done a ten twelve minute video once every two or three weeks over the first three months of this year i think that would have serve as the audience is a lot better than putting it all together in a fifty minute presentation which sort of felt tempted across the entire. I actually think that edited themselves on. Because we didn't get pokemon snapple. Anything like yeah. I read casey. Sorry i also. I assume that all anything pokemon related is going to pronounce on polk monday. Which is in just two weeks. Not this saturday the following saturday. So anything pokemon. I know the pokemon company would have wanted to keep for that day so anything related. They couldn't show and a lot of the things that they did show already knew. Were coming like maybe. We didn't have a release date for example. No more no more heroes three. We knew it was coming knew it was coming this year but we did get a release state but i know it didn't look that great and the other things. Yeah it was. It was the same thing is just coming but we already knew it was coming and there's just like so much stuff missing you know. I think like when when you're absent for this long like nintendo fans rely on nintendo directs to like feed the hype cycle and. I think when you're absent this long like that. Gap is building that that level of expectation that level of hype to such an astronomical level that you know if you're on twitter at all after nintendo made that announcement the only conversation was we're gonna see the zelda collection we're gonna see the metric collection we're finally gonna see bayonet like all these things and none of it was there and it might not be the fault of nintendo. You know like i. I really believe that there's probably stuff going behind the scenes because of production was that have push these dates further back and will not allow them to put that kind of stuff into a direct but man. It was just not what i was expecting waking up yesterday morning. I was like yes. Rex cannot wait to see what they've got in store and about halfway through like. I was texting my girlfriend. Like this is a bummer. This this is a bummer direct. Man i had a couple of feel like there were a couple of bright spots at least for me personally. Obviously anytime they show some pretty joy con bright spot for me here but the and the monster hunters which is coming to the us. So that's a nice thing. I thought that was going to be a japan. Exclusive in monster. Hunter actually really nice. And but the reveal of project nonsense name by square. What was it called project catching strategy. I refuse to believe that the development team ham create story create. These words work on game. Four months cast voice actors record. The cannot come up with a working title. That sounds vaguely felder. God this is the victim. The named a game octa path traveler and it sold really well. All it doesn't matter anymore. At least that made sense like the first letter of letters. The letters october path was the the letter of the first name of all the different eight characters aka the average got. That game was known as project octo path for a really long time prior to that right like about the thing before it was october bathrooms and so this might be called triangle strategy which lays it's not so the thing is triangle letter in the word. Triangles stands for a different town that you'll visit or a time line and obviously this. Everyone knows see his anti and pro that but the spend all this time coming up with names for all these characters so it's obviously not a. Hey we got this cool idea about a strategy game and so we don't have a name for it yet. Just pick a freaking name. It takes less than a day to do a trademark search websites. Who can we can we register. I'm the last person ever to defend this nonsense. But when you get a free minute later when you're having lunch afternoon tea or your weird like a beard things that you'd like to drink. Go on the wikipedia page for kingdom hearts and just some of those titles because they're and their beloved they sell well like these for some odd reason. Some companies can square one of getaway away with just utter nonsense titles and people love him. And i personally don't have a problem with it. I think it's dawn. It's deadly default thirty eight and a half nobody the other so first of all the demo of games to. I'm actually really digging it so that was definitely it was great seeing it again and then we all laughed at the name but i also thought it was cool that we got confirmation. That ten does a detective games. Come into the. Us like real quick. I just wanted to say that The triangle strategy was also a really big surprise for me too. Because i know we heard about octopus traveler. Champions of the continents are conquers continents. It was going to come out on mobile sometime. Maybe it is already out. I don't know but we're supposed to get a concentration of that. Eventually and i was going to be an actual sequel. So i had no idea that they're are working in a totally separate game. So and it's a totally. I know it looks so much like octopus traveler but the the systems are very different. Not the same game at all. Yeah it's it's tactics. Ogre final fencing taxes. basically but. sorry for interrupting. You're talking about the fanny detective games. Yeah the these are games from nintendo's classic history and in the us we've only seen them represented you know through kind of like little inclusions and smash brothers and now they're actually coming to the us. The niche games brian. I don't think you're gonna love them. But they're basically detective mystery stories. That are interactive graphic novels. But i really like the the animation work. It looks really pretty. Yeah i di message about this. When they first announced it because i just i never imagined that this would be a thing that nintendo would ever revisit her comeback too so as a piece of history as piece of game preservation. I think it's really interesting. Obviously you know these are remakes of those but it it'd be really cool to see like the original versions a tucked away in their master chief collection where you kind of switch back and forth between the two. But i think they'll be. I honestly think these will be millions dollars. Japan i think this is a beloved franchise that people missed and have all this knowledge of and i think that'll that'll move some switches. I think it'll be surprising. The animation does look really good. Looks like they put a lot more effort into it than i mean. I guess i. I play a game. Sometimes with the effort in the animation in that is not good but this looks great and there are two different games and they're going to be sold separately as well. We know the price for them. Hopefully they're like thirty dollars each really good couple of hours to finish them. They're fairly small will their downloadable. I'm not three hundred dollars you know. That's what they said. They said it was actually revealed just in the japanese. Okay okay very familiar million yen. A japanese game will a- game shown in the japanese drug that you excited for. Yeah i cannot say the title as well as you can. But that looked really awesome. It's basically like hand-drawn characters over like weirdly. It's like a two d three thing going on I'm really into that. That was one of the more visually striking games out of the whole direct. And we didn't get it here in america. It was bizarre league that keep tabs open now and like watch. Yeah like to happening at the same time. The pacing totally different than in them. It's kind of amazing. I'm actually surprised. You've never done create on change on for halloween because if you just get yourself something eyebrows. It's the other guy that can compare me to a pit bull for short. Yeah i did. I did just want to bring up. How great monster hunter is on the switch. I mean that was definitely. It was definitely a moment. I mean i expected there to show expected them to show something and we got a new monster. Got the official name for the spider monster restore that's shoots lava people that's pretty cool and also for the first time we're going to have more than three monsters fighting at the same time which is very cool in a there. It's the new rampage mechanic. Will you'll be fighting multiple monsters at the same time with a we assume in multiplayer and it just looks. It looks cool. I'm excited for this game. I played the demo. Unlike the footage was rolling in the helmet. What's this it actually looked more polished. And you know the the animations look really cool all that nasty web shooting homeland really great really impressed extra like the work is really really impressive. I you know like this is probably the best looking switch game. I've seen yet. Yeah this is a a very wet shiny weird haley escalier agla you look at game and then you play it and you'll be hitting the same giant rat for two hours with a giant sword and you'll go casey house this fun. That's only if you're bad okay. Maybe but it was. It was made with the art engine. Which is cop cops own. Engine so new. So maybe that's why it looks so much better. It is the first game coming to the switch made for the switch. I know generations. ultimate didn't look great because it was a port thirty s game. I'm definitely. I'm actually come to play this. This this look so cool. It's the same. It's the same damn deal every time with monster hunter for me where every time i'm like. Wow this really. Looks like zach ryan thing at this look so fun and then i get the game and then i play like four hours of it and then i'm like wow i'm bored i'm gonna play something else. Yeah it happening now. it's actually really getting. It's like nice getting old. Look at games like this and be like well. I'm happy for you. Guys you guys thinking specifically is the first year. And i don't know why it's taken me this long to cop to this but like there have been multiple games already in twenty twenty one where i've gotten a few hours in and have been like not for me. I'm just going to move onto the next thing. Because i feel like i have such a hard time doing that. Typically where i'll i'll play and play and play a game. Eventually this will click for me but yeah already this year. There's been a couple of things. Like how many hours should you give a game before you just up the to me now. It's like two or three hours if something doesn't grab me within the first two or three hours like you know. I'm not gonna invest much more than an evening if i'm not waking the next morning after playing it and being like i'm excited to see what this game does next then. Who cares move on. That's okay so last thing before we move on to zelda talk this question is from joshua joshua esguerra and they asked what was your reading for the direct and i know already talked about this but they also have things what were the things they hit on and things that they missed six ten for me. I said it was okay. There are lots of things that made me excited. Like detective club was cool. In splatoon was cool. Mario was cool. You know as if this was any normal week having all these things announced would be super exciting. I think it's just what influences Expectations here's that we have gotten a big announcement in that. Quite frankly a lot the lineup for this year looks anemic Look at another console. xbox Halo coming you look at places. They got caught a war coming. And then you have the switching. Is the news coming this year right like we don't know what's going on yet and that's why it didn't satisfy expectations. Five out of ten for me. I thought on the scale. Five out of ten is mediocre. I thought that was pretty mediocre. Direct yeah on one yeah Probably a five or six Yeah i think that the issue here was that there was a lot of interesting stuff. Did didn't really land in the context of the grander scheme of a fifty minute direct ya. I think there's some stuff that like. Had they waited on. Like i like skyward sword right and we'll get into that in a bit i hope. But that's that's the kind of game that i think if they had announced that in tandem with a bunch of others all the stuff i would have been great but that being the only sort of like zelda to hold onto for a little while Not super crazy about it No no mention of maturity yet. I understand like you know. Hopefully we'll get there if we're going to celebrate obscure famicom Detective games from two years ago and not talking about metro metro-dade like this. Oh something's off man like i don't know And there's a bunch of cool ports. And i'm glad people get to play but for me that's not. That's not really what i go to my switch for anymore. Yeah i would also give it a six for okay. Also understanding that i my year to me already looks packed full of games that i'm going to be very excited for it and i assume there will be a new pokemon game this year that we will learn something about next week so i'm kind of tempering my expectations for this knowing. I already have a year. That i can look forward to and there were. We didn't mentioned integrated master collection. Either which i know. Some people are very excited for but yeah it was. It was okay. I would like to see metro right. I would have liked to see more zelda which we can talk about now which is why nintendo has to have more zeldin news for twenty twenty one. Well i mean how much old stuff too much all stuff are. Numerous said it which i felt bad because he showed up on screen and i was like yes. Let's go near. It comes and the first thing he said was like all right. We don't have any information about breath of the wild too but please enjoy this next now so and it was like okay. We'll see think he did say that. You know we'll have more about breath of the wild to you. Know sometime this later this year which i got a lot of response yesterday on twitter being like we. That means that there's definitely going to be a zelda direct right like there will be a zelda direct down the line and like hopefully that's where we'll get some anniversary collection news. If that's going to happen we'll see breath of the wild to again because we haven't seen that since eighty three twenty nineteen. Yeah i mean there has to be more zelda news coming this year just based on that and i think the speculation for it as a little bit out of control depending on what that zeldin news is. But i feel like the second. We saw the black background behind him. I was like bad news. Even if it was like a light backdrop. I would like we're getting some of the work with here but instead it was just like guys i got some his which i think a bunch of us were joking about like knowing that that would happen that somebody from china would come out and give an update that was not really an update but sorta isn't update like sorry. There's no no news but there will be news is technically news. But it's not the newsroom looking for and then secondly saw the sky as well it scoured sword and then i thought that was going to open up sort of the doors to be like but we're also getting wind waker twilight princess. Or here's a big roll out and it was like i was saying before like i think skywards heard on its own is an interesting announcement. I'm glad that people are going to get to try that game. I really really wonder how that game's gonna hit in twenty twenty one because the discourse around that game was Interesting at the time because that is one of the more sort of like streamlined. And kind of small scale zelda games despite the fact that is about flying it's really a interconnected series of incredibly small almost empty environments And people talking about the control in that game. That's not really the thing that people really like. That's the lisa that gains problems. I would say so it tracks about scherzer We gave it a ten out of ten at the time. And and i think like i like your point brian. I think skyward sword removed from the hype of being a new. Zelda is going to be a really interesting conversation in two thousand twenty one. I think that especially in an era of post What was that game breath of the especially in an era post breath of the wild back game is is. I think really gonna show some of skyward sword shortcomings because it's not quite the traditional zelda of twilight princess or a wind waker. And it's it's not. It's like an incremental step between what old zelda's was and what breadth of the wild would eventually be sort of this half step between the two ideas or concepts and it's it's there's a lot of shortcomings because of that new york it historically i would say like sort of Forced causing intended to shatter the mold on. What three zelda game could be in a notoriously handhold. Obviously there's a lot of qualities. I've stuck wrigley put. I also know that the they did grab some of the features if you want to call it a feature in would sort of bring it over to the breadth of wild kindly stamina system. I mean that was. I would sword right so it. It did innovate zelda in some ways. But as saying it's very different than i am so interested in the controls because we had this discussion many times. Like what will they do at the controls with skyward sword because it was motion control. Only on the we are there's gonna shaft ten knows which light odors but no they did mention there will be an alternative button. Only however you have to assume the sword with your right joystick. I'm so confused how that's gonna work because in a three d. zelda game you're controlling the camera with the right joystick so i guess if you if you lock on you can lock onto an enemy. And hopefully you'll have the option to like click on and then then control the direction of the sword with the right stick but also i. Wouldn't you use your thumb for the right stick is yes soared on a trigger like stomach syria school with that because the original monster hunter and you had to swing your sword with your right stick and the camera was on the d pad on the left and you could also there was no lock on and i can't remember if this was a newer feature not but i think you could tap the the left shoulder button to reorient the camera to the direction that you were looking but a lot of times you would end up in this like weird kloss stance where you're like moving the left stick like pressing. The camera with it was very awkward and very painful after playing for a long time. But i'm wondering if people are going to end up doing that for skyward sword if they're going to have a better innovation for the camera. I'm really wondering how to stick. Control scheme works too. I mean my my gut reaction to that was like. I don't think it's going to play out as well But i'd love to be proven wrong if the way that that actually feels intuitive and you can go into a boss battle feeling like you have like a a very firm sense of control of where your sword slashes are going to go and it's not just like you know random hope hope for the best then. That could be a cool way to play this game i. I'm not really sure how it's going to pan out. I think it's a really interesting setup because remember oak arena of time indoors masks by without having a camera controls at all all walk on and fixed camera. Because you're sixty four. We didn't have enough sticks and a yano. I'm curious to see how that feed how that feels right. There's something to the slash that feels right when you use motion controls in. There's something to hitting the button. Does flicking a stick. Feel the same way. I'm curious about that too. I think to a Never about the the motion controls for me. I honestly didn't mind the motion controls. I thought with the we motion plus that are actually pretty spot. And i never had like real finicky control issues like some people experienced. I love some of the puzzle solving stuff like roll a bomb or like you know. Toss stuff like. I thought that was very actually very cool my issues the skyward sword are more so about like the very very obvious ways that it's padded out especially in the back half of the game there so many fetch quests and like the game just seems to go on forever and you know. I've caught a lot of goth about this on twitter like every time i bring up skyward sword. I think it's the worst. Three d zelda game but i could see caveat that by saying like even the worst. Zelda game is still better than eighty five percent of every other game ever made. It's just like when you compare it to the games that came before it and now especially breath of the wild i just. I don't know how it holds up in two thousand twenty one to the art style and by the way if you watch the trailer on our website someone we can actually see the upgrade like it is definitely sharper but it also suffers the up from that can apparently look. I think we call it a lot of times. Really one of my my least favorite Art style for for a zelda game five really liked the kind of bold colors of wind waker in which they have gone the route of being more cel shading this game. But no i think the when whenever we talk about skyward sword we remember a lot of the issues we for me. It was that. When i want to slash at an enemy i wanted to work and like even one out of twenty times. When it doesn't work it feels like the controls on accurate in the delegates. So good when it comes to control. Usually we are also. We also always talk about the ban things and they're so much good stuff. Sorted has the best story moment in the zelda games which i'm not going to spoil which is just a really kind of it had it had had week airs ending and a really cool ending ending but has a really good has some cool boss. Battles has some neat dungeons. I think the best dungeons zola series. No not one thing. In skyward sword that i would say beets every zelda game out there but it's also a series with such pedigree. I didn't like the time shift. Crystal house is to bring. That's one of the coolest things in zelda ever that that whole area with the time shifting is really really smart and flying feels good flying fields good in the big boss battle in the sky all of that stuff the binds. Hope is very nice. You don't get to fly around an open world. When i heard game with flying before sale that came out before skyward sword came out. I imagine an open world. And you get this upgrade. Where eventually you've got this winged so dragon or whatever. It's it's pelican fly. You don't fly around the open the door from world. I don't know if you guys are playing three d world but it. They sped it up a lot right faster. And so that's the thing that happened here The flying is cowards. Heard is incredibly slow and it takes forever to get from place to place and it's pretty and it's interesting looking but there's not enough. It's just empty and slow up their minds of planets. Fox you know. Yeah you're you're talking about. You're talking about the art direction. I think that like they went for this Sort of Muted watercolor approach new play. So much of this game designed around the strengths and the weaknesses of the nintendo week It was it was incapable of like pumping out really high quality. Hd stuff and you know we played it on through through. You know component cables if we were lucky. The motion emotion plus was basically designed specifically for this and we sports resort. And like i think it works. I just i wish they had bumped up the vibrancy of this game a little bit. I wish they had bumped up the contrast of this game a little bit. it feels. It feels very sort of like soft and muted. And i think that works on your playing on a old crappy fifteen years ago but nowadays like i i want to pop a little more like breath of the wild is such a gorgeous game is so unbelievably good looking despite the fact that it is essentially running on a very old hartman compared to what we're playing these and so i. I really wish that there was like a little more of that. And we didn't really talk about dousing that is like one of the worst mechanics in the history zelda and like thanks instead it was basically microcosmic trifles quest before almost every done forgotten walking around and person with this like beeping metal detector looking for key parts. And that's the thing that's got to be sped up. You know little things like that. But i trust nintendo will take that approach with a lot of o. L. stuff with us end speed. Those things up more fun. Make the more interesting Because they did it with one waker that they did it with three d world. There's all these little things that they've done with their games and to give them credit. I think they're really smart at that. And i really hope that that that's something. That's their the the one big request that i have for skyward sword is allow is for nintendo to allow you to limit the interaction that you have with fi keep feet story sequences because like pair mentioned earlier. She pops out of the sword every five minutes to tell everything that it's just like. Oh hey you've got that's twenty. Hey every time starts every time you restart your game after after saving you come back. She will introduce what rupiahs. Which is i appreciate games that you can pick up often. You've taken a break for two months and tells you all know that's how you attack. I like that but after like an hour and telling me what ruby does this is also like i mean if you look at some of their ports from the we you era pigment three. They added a bunch of content to that Three like i just mentioned they. They added hauser's fury which is superfund. Like six hours. I loved it. I think they're really good at doing us of even with link's awakening. It got a complete graphic overhaul. They added that weird owed. This needs something on top of the base game to sort of justify the sixty dollar price tag. It doesn't because it will sell billions anyway and it'll also the we version and they really don't need to do anything but i appreciate the fact that they have done that because it alleviates the sting of that price tag a little bit and so i do hope they find something that put in here. Even though the way Bouncers furious thrown in there. It's like that's not a full. Mario game didn't need to do that. But i'm glad it's there. I appreciate it as a weird experiment. And i think if there's something they can pull out of skyward sword something to go in there even if they throw link's crossbow training is i was just gonna to write about foto reasoning. Yeah throw it in there and see what happens. I hope there's something there. I have a feeling there won't be but maybe there will be so. Yeah so skyward sword. Hd is coming on july sixteenth for fifty nine ninety nine full price tag. And i also wanted to bring up. Of course the really cool looking joy con that are launching alongside with it. I don't know if a limited edition. I assume it is. I already made this joke on twitter. But i'm really looking forward to getting those and then being extremely disappointed when they stop working a month later so billions. They'll be millions of them so don't order one on the first day until you see me posting a picture of it and then you can order. He'll don't worry. Try buying pro controller. That's not great right now. Does not keep that stuff in stock for very long. So i think the answer is yes. It'll be limited in some fashion. They're they're definitely the most beautiful jewelry con i've ever seen so pretty and cool and want them but the last pair joy count i bought stopped working in a day after i m so that sucks so i feel like you're cursed with joy condo. I i mean knock on wood. I've had the same joy on for three years and have not experienced. Drifts like going to happen to me. I know that will. I played one day and it wasn't even a hard. It was literally a a visual novel now. A lot of hard pressing of stuff going on and then the next day it just been like over and over again thinking but anyway. I'm looking forward to that. Hopefully i'll figure out how to not do that to my controllers by the time that comes out on july sixteenth. Also we could. I completely forgot to mention that our warriors each climbing is actually getting an extension pass with a bunch of. you'll see. Yeah so that's the thing that's coming game didn't have enough to do that. Game has so much in it. it's a big game. I was actually surprised. They're they're announcing that but maybe that is part of their anniversary celebration. Yeah which again is very confusing because like we mentioned the thirty fifth anniversary. Is this sunday on february twenty. First in mario's thirty fifth anniversary got a ton of stuff. I mean it got a whole separate direct which is why we're assuming there has to be more like maybe a collection. Maybe just something. Maybe a series of mine nintendo missions that you can do online maybe pins. Brian like oh my god. I'm actually trying to think if like so. The second written the second round of super mario pens on the mind intended website were legitimately probably three to five times to get it then. Series x or. Ps five was from now. It's not even close because it was one thing that just like open up like the xbox website and refresh it and it would crash you get one of those like my sql errors of this. So basically nintendo put of this series of tasks and challenges that ranged from find. You know cats on a website to eat ice cream in real life and every one of those things get off a little box And i did. I did a bunch of them and i did enough of them This slowly locked few over time. Because i think they felt bad that people basically were able to get them all and so yesterday was the big day and so the way. This works is You by doing all these tasks receive a code and that code then into the nintendo store which is technically a separate website and then using that code. You're able to add this to your cart and then you pay like five bucks for shipping and you get them so it's not technically for your paying at the end of the day and what happened here was thousands of people were refreshing shadow to the website re cetera. The message over there because we're people in there just kind of like all in the same boat. Here refreshing in unison. Trying to figure out how to get through the system and what do is every time you're refreshed. It would populate a different number of the amount of missions out of fifteen missions that you had actually accomplished. even if it was all fifteen that you've done it would tell you three and they'd refresh again. It would say seven you're trusting would say like eleven and every now and then you get to like fourteen and you'd be like i can see over the wall and so literally an hour and a half of me just like i was in meetings. I was like checking emails just refreshing. I had my phone open. I had my laptop open. And i was just like juggling all stuff. Finally get through. And then it wouldn't take credit card information. So i had to go to my switch on my nintendo switch and delete all my information there. Reim- it put it back in. And then let me do it. Literally an hour and a half and i was like you have an existential crisis during this. Because you're like i don't even need pins. I don't even wear them anymore. I don't go anywhere like there's a chance that you could have convinced me to do. All that work for some pins like oh warranty right. Wouldn't make we talked about this last week. But i mentioned i was doing all of those missions for our wiki on how missions i didn't realize it was physically impossible for me to do them all until eleven of them and i was like bryan bryan. Did the ice cream in real life mission nine times. Yeah you didn't even have to. I just kept going back. You know me. I love cold stone. Creamery only missions. I didn't. I love that. You making fun of me for like ordering joy from japan when they first released and you're sitting there is like dedicating so much time to get some pins. I did the show with you. Through the amoeba era. We both know how dark how dark things can. I'm calling like targeted seven. Mb goes roseline. Things got bad okay. I got out of the game for awhile. And i found new games against. I got to knew me move last week. Oh that's very arnaud. Kept teach martin canal. They look like wedding cake toppers. Yeah they got that kind of like like crunchy look. They look like they're made of frosting kind of on his own. Because of that. I well brian. I'm glad that you got those pins and parents that you got those. But maybe do you think one last question about the legends of the thirty fifth anniversary. Do you think there will be a direct sometime between now and next week. Consider an anniversary. It's on sunday. The one those treat this anniversary like like a year and ideally. They'll get to eventually okay. Sad that's a metro to we have the same metrics doesn't exist according to nintendo anymore. So let's find heartbreaking desiring somebody about to start to start working on nah. I'm sure that they've done some work on. And speaking of hiring someone. There is a few other pieces of news from this week. That i did want to touch upon just a little bit. But the studio that made link's awakening garozzo is hiring for a new medieval and stylish project. So they also worked on the remastered. Focus and time endorsed masks. So you project staff. Recruitment don't really know what it is. That's it to be zelda. The original given the talented they did make ever oasis. It twenty seven room so they do. I hope they do skyward sword. Honestly i also really port The three d. s. versions of there's all the games to switch a casey. I know you weren't crazy about the majority mask port but the one's pretty solid. Yeah yeah. I have. No qualms at the majority mass. I think both of those coming to switch and like a two pack would be really cool. You'll pay sixty bucks for each of them and god like it still would like some new games. I think that they're going to do like My hope is that they do a three collection like they did for bennett. guy. Mario if that's the case i'd love to see off. Carina the grasso port when waker hd and twilight princess hd. I feel like they'll just port the originals like they did with the like the three d. collection. They were like they stayed away from. I mean even already exist like those. Those are already the sets those games already exist whereas like galaxy and sunshine and mario sixty four like i mean mario sixty four is coming to a bunch of different platforms. But there's no like sixty four hd. Well there's the sports the closest we've come where they'd like the overhaul section controls on the diaspora sack like there's a cool game in their if they just you know. Find to replace deep. Had with analog stick. I mean so crazy to me that they poured beckoning one to to the us but like they added thirty extra stars you could turn into warrior. There's really a lot going on. But the fans are clamoring for maybe. Hopefully we'll get that three d. collection for zelda but also there is a small piece of more news the great ace attorney chronicles. Pcp's for switch has been rated in taiwan and this was a these were two games that came out on these three d. s. japan. That never came out here so maybe we'll be getting them here sometime in the near ish future. That's it. that's the news cool perfect so now. I wanted to skip over into what we're playing because now that people have actually been able to play thousand fury will can have an actual discussion about your hands on impressions which were unable to do last week. Game of the year. Twenty twenty one baby rocks really like it. I really like it i just. I described it as a playground right. It's like a concept of open world. Mario game would be anything. Nintendo was playing with this concept they probably also ran into the limitation says very difficult to do these visually impressive levels. And have it be in an open world setting with all this stuff going on but it really works as this kind of smaller confined experience. It does not stay its welcome. I love the you know the the the pulled off letting you use all these different powers which really alter the gameplay right like in any other game like the cats who could break the experience because you can take shortcuts or the propeller had or anything but they pulled it off in it. It's like playing some of my favorite castle levels for mario sixty four in the big. Three d. setting you know there's some some complaints with like the the buzzer blood moon event. It doesn't always happen when it won't when you wanted to do right like she should have a lock on as well. Yeah there should be something going on there and then the browser battles are fun but not that amazing am really like also really like the little way. Raise water Hearts where you scooting about the map while bowser blows up the world. I think he's really fun. I'm so glad. I'm so glad they added that. Yeah i actually think the bazzars fury parts about our fury arabic. The worst parts. Personally i think like the interconnected open world. Concept is really smart. It definitely like it's a little more ambitious in its capable of doing the. What is wrong with mario there and like the definitely moments where like you get on the as pair called in the meeting water yoshi And you're riding around and then you jump into another area and he grabbed catsuit new pop thing in all of a sudden the game just like whoa hold on. Give me a minute to catch up like it's you know it. Technically it definitely chugs a little bit but it's so fun and it's so pretty looking and i think it was such an nice surprise i remember i played it for about four hours and i was like oh i guess i guess i reached the end and it was like now. There's still lots more to do. Fifty four yeah yeah. It was super super fun. I think it's very clever. In the way it interconnects all these like sort of small small form. Mario levels in one larger thing there is resistant making it elder. Like if they had created this system where the propeller hat is unlikable lockable. And you have to find it first. Then you access. All these different areas would be a different game. I would've doug that too but just the task of balancing this game with all these different powers unlocked right from the start. This is pretty cool. I really like it. I think it's i think it's brilliant. I think it for those of us that have been jonesing for super mario odyssey to do something else. You know like super mario odyssey two or even a one point five like galaxy to like this. This is it for me that there's so much to do. It's it's so unique. It really is a perfect marriage of odyssey in three d world. Which as the last two three d zelda games like i think i think it's really doing some really smart stuff I love the fact that it's just like one big open world map that you can tackle however you want a. They really played a lot around with that in in odyssey. Obviously these are these huge open areas but the way that this is even tied closer together as really certainly interesting like i think we could be looking at a template for you know whatever the next big ten polcy game is and i also think it's a really cool thing from nintendo. Because like they feel like they don't have a history of letting their teams just sort of weird one offs like this and to get like a of real bite sized mario sequel attached to a different game is like such an interesting kind of concept from them. And i. i'm here for it. Like i love this so much. I will say that it does. It doesn't really smart thing in in sort of like scaling. The way. I approach mario levels. I don't know about you guys. But i play. Historically i play three d mario mario games kind of obsessively where i'll get into a world and then have to get every single store for design yet but here i felt myself like i would get like three or four and then hop on over to the next thing come back grab another one like it felt sort of a lot more freeing. Obviously that's by design of my own brain being like you must obsessively collect everything before you move on but in this in this game i just felt like oh it's like i i at my own pace i can get you know one of the cash over here. Collect a couple of things over here. Get find secret over here. It felt like so much more sort of freeing and relaxed. How sorry i was gonna say. Then you have three d world which was showing right now right so the on three d world portion which to me. It's it's i feel like one of the the weaker. Three d. Mario games in in my book. I i like it. I enjoy it but i enjoy mostly as a multiplayer game. I really have fond memories of playing that with my family in that jump. Back in a really liked the added speed boosts. It feels better now but it but it has that. It doesn't completely match. What i want from a modern mario game. Which is that kind of more open exploration. It's kinda halfway between the accuracy of an awesome to d game ama- a three d game without that that really tightness of the controls in the accuracy. But it's still. It's still a good game. I'm still enjoying yeah. I'm with impressed with with three d world. I played it when it came out on the we. You and i remember liking it. It'd be like oh yeah. This kind of reminds me of the new super mario franchise but kind of a different twist but playing through it through three d world ambassors. Jerry i i like it so much more than i remember like i. It seems like such a better game to me. Maybe it's the added speed boost like you're talking about that. That makes it feel more moryo to me. Like i really had a great time playing through. I'm in the the last bonus world now going through trying to collect all the green stars in each level and they're tough man like they're really challenging platforming in this game. Yeah that's what i love about. Td mario's when you get to that super hard really thumb busting platforming and like i i love that i love thirty world more so now than i think i did in twenty fourteen or whenever it came out i loved then i love it now. It's i'm weirdly having like a slight more slightly more problems with sort of like hit detection and like landing later landing junk yeah perspective. Which is. I don't think that was ever a problem for me before but a lot of getting used to like in the initial few worlds off of something and they'd be like how the hell did that happen It's been really fun to play in local up. I will say an added wrinkle. I wasn't expecting was my kid is old enough now to figure how to walk into the room. Pick up a controller and turn it on so we've just had this like phantom towed that shows up in our game it keeps like dying and bobbling and like we'll just randomly. The camera will just be like. Oh you guys all go to the where the toad lives now. And it's that's that if you want to play this game on the hardest difficulty possible. Just turn an extra controller on ed like heavier cat or a kid or just hit with your foot every now and then that is chaos. I do not recommend playing this game like that kid. A baby tweet tweet controller. That works for like the first few years but she's with us. Can't you use baby bowser mode and just pointed at the screen and drive you crazy by flying around the y. All se man. I do not like that part of this game. Like having to hit the trigger to turn a pointer on it to like the levels in this. You have yeah. I'm not a fan of that. I wish they had to scrap those honestly. I get why they're there. But i played with my son's almost worse touchscreen to like i played some of those levels where you're pointing at the stuff to to move platforms and i played a few levels in hand held. Where you're you're taking your hands off the controller touch the screen and it's if it feels bad. Yeah yeah to have that level of like dexterity with precision based platform and also juggling multiple control schemes. that are either or pointing. It just doesn't. It doesn't gel for me and i kinda wish. There was a better work around the house or you on which is literally as just a helper so yes that one that one i think is very little kid friendly because your kid can just mess around in length hopefully once in a while pointed one of the paintings and uncover it. But it's funny. When you're exploring the world than your. Your kid is like flying around the crown randomly. Hand kimberly dean evening. But i'm they can actually collect the little shine part is so this. How long did it take you all to beat vows fury. I've not finished yet. Wall the getting to the ending. You get to the ending. Enroll the credits before you have. The hundred shine shines dried sony. that's about what four or five hours. I'm propagate like probably like five five or six hours in right now at the point where bowser is just like just constantly pissed off. Nothing like he i. I actually haven't figured out the way to diffuse his his fury jerry. But i'll get back in there later and try the comments okay. So an overall positive outlook on a super mario three d world plus thousands fury to anything else you complain. Yeah new demo yes johnson. Strangles did play project triangle strategy last night as well a lot of narrative going into the first battle. But it's really interesting. did you play. Yeah it was just gonna say. I turned on my switch yesterday in the characters. Still talking the amount of exposition. Sometimes in j. rpg's before mission is guys. Not every character has zeta. I agree and like that's the worst part of like these. These kinds of non animated setup scenes. Besides that i think is really fun. It's very final fantasy tactics down to Like if you've played some of some of the strategy guys light at a games like fire them you have to determine which direction new character faces after a turn and flanking characters tekken characters from back us more damage that has all that sort of stuff in big variety of attacks and spells characters can list and it just looks really really pretty. I'm digging. I'm really looking forward to this. One and it does have a action economy. Kind of like octa pather each turn. You will get another one of those little yellow diamonds which determines Which attack you can use on your turn so you can kind of choose to not do anything. Fancy fancied one turn so you have the benefit of doing a more powerful tack next turn and i did like one of the things that they included during the story. When they're talking you can press the button and then see the illustrated image of that character instead of just the the bid version which i also liked. But it's it's separated into story. They're three difference. They're really. They're really going onto that triangle. He's like a board game related phases. That they're as is did you think so. It's it's obviously early because it's not coming out for a while. I think they still have a lot of work to do. I do wish somebody would take the red editing Into the dialogue sometimes for these games like just kind of you can tell a great story without constantly having every character Way in but no the big thing that they need to fix this. It's sometimes hard to track. What units are yours. In which one's your enemies on the board it's like it is is picturesque in very pretty. But it makes it very easy to lose your characters than also because there's not a hick system or system. It's a little bit hard to see what the actual reaches and the range. You get these Red attack lines show whether you're in range over the enemy attack. But like i feel like they really need to double down on working on the hud and speeding things up a little bit is. If you've never played one of these games that takes a long time to complete a turn. Yes it does end. They're doing the same thing. They did with octopus traveler. Where if you play the demo they will send out a survey and they will take everyone's suggestions and actually implement them into the real game which they did a lot of offerpad traveler they changed. They changed quite a bit based off of fan input. So they're doing that for this to which in it's not coming out until twenty twenty two product triangle strategy hopefully has a better name by then fix. This could be big. It's it really is a return to the classic tactics game. So i i did enjoy this i. I'm also of course still playing monster sanctuary. I'm going out myself. I've never finished a metro. Dania a game but i am with monster sanctuary among very lots. Par is the first metro vinnie. I'm ever going to finish. And i know it's not a completely classic Metric advani game because obviously it has the monster collecting rpg elements to it. But i have really really love this. I know i've talked about this for the past month. But i am obsessed clearly this game quick quick heads. A in metro really is technically dragon. And you love dragon so you should try out. There was he doesn't want to kill the dragon though. Make friends with them and have them battle other dragons for me relievers. Makeup ridley will be your friend. Elsa started rogue heroes on capco stadium. Did you guys play that at all. I can't come arcade last night. Yeah it's Confusing the set up of heaven. Arcade where i you can't put money into anything because the game's only exist in ghost mode again them. I right when they come out. It's very odd I i think that the pricing is sort of fair. Like if you were to buy everything in the collection it's in line with what most of these cartoons usually costs. It was also just sort of confusing to me. Because i was like how many of these games that i do. I own already maury in multiple other collections on my switch currently. I feel like there's a weird ven diagram there but it is called that it comes with a what is it. Nineteen forty three forty two and tangos and goblins. Yeah which school and you can switch between the japanese and on north american release versions of them. It's just like there's a lot like when you wanna download game kicks you to the e shop which then you'll have you have to buy them sort of impacts the starts the reason the game the yeah and there's like sixteen logos on a very streamlined process. But i think like if you wanted everything once you got in there. The layout's pretty cool. It's got sort of like Cascading arcade cabinet approach to it. And it sort of feels like walking down like this dingy old arcade and picking a cabinet to pop in on in and play games on. So i think i think it's cool. I haven't i haven't bought the tax yet though. Oh yeah and the default displays stupid. Lake virtual arcade started game in the default display Game is to show you part of the cabinet and the stuff at an angle in the graphics of the cages. Darn good enough of that too. But you can. Obviously you can customize everything you can do tattoo mode so you can do. Vertical play games have vertical monitored. You can do all sorts of filters it does look like a really good collection if you into the classic comb games. He had totally. And i'm glad there's a lot of like kind of obscure stuff that i think is making. Its way here for time in a while. So i'm gonna say. I hope it's something that keeps growing and getting streamline to so those are the games that were playing this week anything else anyone wanna mention good so we talked about project triangle strategy mantra sanctuary. And the you literally just the capcom arcade collection arcade stadium which was announced during that nintendo direct. But now it's time to move on into question block and this first question is from john. Deere's really quick. Hey casing in front does do you think we might get a separate pokemon direct honor around pokemon monday keep up. The great work and besieged highlight of my week going on for seven years a quick answer. Yes they always do on. Also there's a post malone pokemon concert on polka monday so not this saturday but the saturday next. Obviously no don't know about it after using collaborations i've seen in a very long time. I'm not opposed to it but it's very strange. I agree i think strange. Also not opposed just For some reason when they announced a collaboration with katie peres like katy perry but when they showed the ad with postal and i was like. Oh that's weird but he's popular. It's because the gen z on so this next question is from a nina slater and they asked you think splatoon three breath of the while two were run on the current switch To have much more detail than the current urgent. Before i think the strategy into now is going to be even when they bring out the next hardware. It's gonna be a step up with maybe smoother frame rates not gonna just replace the big install base that they build think of the the s line in how nintendo with a new three d. s. woods trying to establish a new platform in said. No that's not working. Completely of. I think they learned from that. I think all all games will run on this. Yeah i can't see them turning their back on the By that point what hundred something million. Nintendo switch is narrow by tiny twenty two like. It's that's an insane insane number like i just. I think they will design everything around that core userbase for as long as they can. I personally don't ever really think we will see like a switch pro. I think they'll make a sequel to the switch. It'll be whole other system but it doesn't really seem like they're you know i've said this before. But it doesn't seem like they're creative and artistic. Visions are being hampered by the limitations of the of the tech. It seems like they're designing around what they have to work with. And you know. I wish things look prettier. But on the flip side. I don't think the average user cares nor should they really i think. Hdr in stuff is definitely a bit of a game changer. When you have the new tvs and it seems like a lot of people have with them. But if nintendo service and most people respondents him playing in handle the not going to be any rush to change that. I think that'll be a probe this human. We'll see i mean it is proven that you can make games that look good on the switch. They just hopped made they just have to be made for the switch not made on other platforms imported after the fact so i think developers keep that in mind. We can get pretty looking games on the switch. But we'll see. I mean and also even with this is always the case as well further down the line in any systems each be games. Always look better even if there hasn't been an update to the system. I mean look at the first game that came up to be three versus the last games that came out in the. Ps three he has four in etcetera. So i think they just get better with time because developers know them better also breath of the wild to is being made for the switch. Not the we use. So i expected to look a lot better too as well. That's a good point. This next question from patrick coppins and they said it does the announcements platoon three and the development of breath. Awhile to mean that will get another new. Three d mario odyssey two or galaxy three on the switch life cycle. We just got one series like a mini version of it right. Yeah i think so. Like odyssey came out so early. I couldn't i could imagine that they'll do another one. and not. Just a a a remake. Report. i mean do we do. We have a long history of getting multiple. Three d mario on one intendo platform early. Let's see besides galaxy to galaxy. Game people only had sunshine sixty four only had super mario sixty four. We had we all. We only had three d world. There wasn't a big three game on super. Mario brothers on top of that so definitely get multiple mario's and we'll see if they go back through the i don't know maybe also made mario maker. So maybe two d. Mario is over there not i have not. I would love to see a new. Two d mario personally but i forgot one and last quick fire question. Answer fast atom. This is from amends. Hell we all play skyward. Sword with or without most controls without probably. I don't know it depends on how that bright stick works about brian. I'm going to try with. I think I wanna play this game on tv. I think our I played a lot of like. I did like a lotta shrines stuff out in breath of the wild. That was such a massive game that i did a lot of the shrines like on on enhance elbowed. That was also like we're fresh off. The novelty of like my switch is a portable system can go anywhere but it's also a console but now like i mean i find myself playing a lot of switch docked because i'm home. I'm traveling much and this is like at the end of the day. It's not my favorite big. Three's elder game but it is still a big. Three's all the game. It's got like some awesome music. Some awesome story moments. I wanna play that on a big screen. tv. I'm going to try both and then see which i like better on them. If i do think they'll work better with with ajoy calm right. There's a a decade worth of technology difference there drift notwithstanding I do think it might feel better. Especially if they work on the rumble of love to. That could be really cool. You'd have i remember in both hands. And i'd like to give motion control shot for the same reasons pair just mentioned but that is all the time we have left for this week's nintendo voice chat to submit your own questions.

LCB Ep. 371 - Top 5 Movie & TV Cars, Fast & Furious 9 (F9) Review, Marvel's New Shang-Chi Trailer, and Paul Walter Hauser Interview

"Alabel parallel down now. Old bar up. So three seventy one jeff flow conjectural ball and it's a fast and furious episode fast f nine f nine the fast saga fast and furious. Nine movies are back biggest opening weekend at the box office. Since the rise of skywalker. I know that obviously that doesn't mean a ton however it's cool to see people went out to see movies or reviewing that or doing a tv and movie cars draft and then we also talked to walter houser really fun interview with paul author hauser. I think people are gonna gonna love this one. the god. Yeah he was he was was he doing hot boy summer. Yeah then. He said he was getting into hobby. Summer maybe was that but it seems like him. Yeah yeah fast nine. We'll get to that in a little bit though. But you're a ton. I'm at an impasse with that franchise So we have left to talk about with fast fast and furious nine but before. Get into that what's happening. What's going on anything. Anything exciting anything any worth talking about gaming update no. I haven't played a game since All the way since thursday but no because they released the mario golf. You see that. And i've been in meeting amid meaning to get that but i is that mobile. It's the nintendo switch. It's not mobile now. Now you gotta get switched to do that. I've been. I've wanted to get a switch solely for games like that shit. I'm gonna go get my switzerland. So i love mario tennis. But the last mario tennis wasn't it wasn't actual tennis while courses not actual tennis. Because it's mario tennis with luigi but it was more like rock paper scissors. There's too many power ups and so it relied more on lake luck in rock paper scissors type game play mechanics than actual tennis So actually cited for mario golf because i liked it when we were playing the pga game last year. But that was too hard. And so i need. I need medium. Yeah nice little colorful happy medium. they should make a. We've talked about this before Mario super strikers. That's the go next. I think so too. I think they should do. They should just have a complete slate of mario sports games that they update ask every four years. You need updated annually but ordered. They should just give the nfl licensed to nintendo and have them do like a mario nfl game. Where like larry asli odd licenses. That that the which famously like you right now could be worrying olympic rings on your shirt and we can publish the video on youtube. And there's like a twenty percent chance. They tried to sue us. Like that's how strict they are. But then the ioc gave gave all the olympic logos in rights tamari to nintendo and sega and mario and sonic at the olympic games would game with it with the beijing olympic. They did. They've done everyone since beijing rings. I think it congress time mario and sonic were in a video game together. Which if you were if you were ten years old and nineteen ninety. Four whatever a dream. You never thought you'd see come to fruition but then when it actually happened it happened in the latest way possible and so it was never actually just games. Yeah yeah well yeah. It was like i'm like ten. I'm like man. I'd love mario and sonic game together. But i know it's never going to happen. And then the monkey paw curls and it's like what maurienne sonic did shotput hammer throw of. Everyone's favourite athletic competition. I'm lavinia yeah of the the football license. Otros just aaron. Donald just absolutely strip sacking quarterback. Yoshi it would be so funny. I would love that game i think. Yeah like what. I think it should be. Is i think they should rank the top twenty players in the nfl in those are the only twenty players that actually make it in the game and then every every other character is mario world. You're describing backyard backyard baseball. Yeah yeah that's the first thing. I thought of as well but that's the same thing looking better the completely new thing. They had a backyard football. They had it was like the original. Was barry sanders. Steve young randall cunningham jerry rice. They had they had. They had all the sports. We talk about this recently. Backer of your backyard basketball it. Only kevin garnett and lisa leslie. Nobody else stinks In yet you know K. g. but It's interesting Interesting concept to do like those backyard games and then not have A bunch of famous players That's the hook when you're a kid you want to feel like you don't feel like you're playing backyard. Baseball with a the crime dog fred mcgriff. Yeah exactly mardi morning marty. Cordova was in one of them twins. Legend Yeah no becca backyard. Sports games ross. That'd be cool. I don't know why though i feel like there's another. Nfl game very similar. To what you just described with. Mario but i may be wrong with thinking. Lining i can major franchise characters which is just sounds like that exists so inspire. It probably doesn't someone's yelling at the core there. Oh it's a it's a it's a fan at it. That's what it is here for kind of sick though. Also googling mario nfl and thinking that i was gonna get anything. Other than mario williams was stupid like they hang out. All the mario characters you in love earl a different positions then everyone else is just replaced by a kupa like got offensive line. Just kupa kupa shells or whatever all donkey kong. Sir all browsers both lines. You know what. I mean like you have no choice in the matter. That would definitely be would work. I would take kirby. 'cause i think kirby would you'd have a special move replaying line and you just eat the pass rush. Who's the quarterback said Quarterback was lead the other star quarterback. Well that's where you get into those like so obviously the top twenty. Nfl players in here like backyard basketball. A lot of them are going to be quarterback. So got patrick mahomes. And i don't think you'd have the real teams right. You'd have to do the backyard. Baseball approach where you would have to like. Pick your teams for every game. The elliott mario. Mario definitely mario. Luigi would definitely have to be quarterbacks like how their stats were to marry a baseball on how that could apply to football because baseball's a lot baseball's a lot easier right. 'cause like mario mario obviously he. He has first base or pitcher vibes. Maybe catcher and infield guy from correctly really years they were like bows good pitcher. No buzzers reagan hitter donkey. Kong was a really really good pitcher as was a king boo. I remember right a paper on yahoos up there. Where do you put princess daisy. I think she's wide receiver but the funny thing about the sonic versus mario at the olympics. Is it breaks cannon because obviously sonic would win every time that's his whole thing he would never lose the he'd never lose track. Event ever said is sold out thirty years of sonic for this cheap caching. They just they ruined his legacy. They did they. They killed sonics legacy. Actually i think the i think the first trailer for that movie. Probably kill sonic's legacy but i think i did. That ended up helping my thing. I think that was a net positive. I think so. I think they got a lot more attention to the movie. And they're making a sequel. I think it worked out. Just fine for him. I will always be a sonic character design trigger. We talk we talk to james. I'm sudarshan edson us ago. That doesn't exist Okay episode burger by american giant. That's right american giant. It's that time of year. Some t shirts folks in premium teas These t shirts.

Just unbelievable seat. That's the ultimate heat. Check though like you're the peak of your popularity like let's see like can i bring back the hitler moustache despite hitler's like various Nope couldn't do. It didn't work. That's how you know it's never gonna come back with. Was that the one of the airplane. Yeah you'll bake what a i mean. How long did he do the hanes commerce. Does he still do commercials or is he out of the hands game. It's a question now. I have incited. Hanes get him. How much money did hanes pay him a lot of money. I wanna magin via there. I think Is it via brands today. On fruit of the loom can't wanted one way or the other. Yeah yeah Normally like i can't remember if hanes is owned by a gigantic holding company portfolio stuff Since like the got a lot of Throw at it. 'cause big company. Who do you think's the most popular human the world right now the rock Like just mo- universally. I beloved his like. It's weird to describe the rock that way anyway like them. Yes that too. Yeah that iraq. I i do think i the rock has been my default answer for awhile and i'm so what's imagined in iraq right now though. I think it's decent. He's a pretty. He's a very viable action star at side of the us. But but what if he got a hitler mustache right now. Do you think people get mad. I don't like this topic. I think he would think people would not be happy with that. I just i don't know like michael jordan. Did you see any would stop him. He's like i'm tired of being around yes-men he's like he's like yeah. They're like yeah. It's great mike. Are you fucking. You're series is good. I think that's why didn't that commercial though a do what you're that that's the heat check. Which is like. I'm tired of doing these hands. Commercials you know a fucking me out of these. Yeah speaking of michael jordan space jam the space jam director this week. Michael malcolm. that'll be airing sumer. Actually we got the movie. I'm gonna watch it today space jam. Tom baby jim New reality show from barsha sports hosted by yours truly Barsha versus. America premiered on sunday night. Five episodes this week. It's fucking crazy wild stuff Very nervous about itself. I didn't fuck it up. Enjoy or hate it. Let me think everyone watch it on. Youtube dot com arthur's america. You'll find it five all week. Forty minutes guy who built all the challenges for Amazing race american ngo warrior challenge heated ours so pretty cool shit News a lot of trailers trailers first trailer for halloween. Kills michael myers yet. Again is back Go figure so they. The trailer explains how he survived Which i. It's fine so minutes after laurie strode and her daughter karen and granddaughter alison left mass monster. Michael buyers caged burning lorries basement. Lorries rush the hospital with life threatening injuries leaving. She finally killed her lifelong tormentor when michael manages to free himself. Laurie trap which happens. Because the firefighters come and save the house and one of them falls down and opens up hole in the basement his ritual bloodbath resumes. As laurie fights pain in paris to defend herself against him. She inspires all of hadn't field the rise up against their unstoppable bonds. It's basically a war with The townsley go to war with Mike lincoln pitchforks in their their torches. There's another movie coming out next year. Halloween ends halloween end. So i it's this is just an we. Were michael myers kills a bunch of people which is fine just but now it's so like the last one we didn't. I don't think we have like really strong opinions in the last one. But i think the last one had that been the nfl better very solid ending. It made sense like she. Built this booby booby-trapped house. Now it's i mean this is a this is going to be a gory fucking movie. That's that's basically that's how you take it a face. Oh they've shown a lot of crazy kills in it. Watt groce it. He's not gonna die. He will not die at. The end of this was another movie. I think jamie. Lee curtis my. I don't know maybe she won't i. I have whatever the biggest and most important question is our podcasters going to return as the main vehicle for this movie as well and i hope the answer is yes because once we don't get the recognition it deserve on the silver screen will the the trail and thoughts on that. They tease that we. He's gonna have a full face. Reveal fucking right. They did it about master chief for twenty years and they never did it would it. Would it be funny. If he just revealed its face in it was just very normal would be kinda saw that it is in the last one right because remember. They showed like the side of it. Yeah would it be like what if it was like. A big face. reveal Tom hanks michael myers or something. Just to get people talking. And i think they should revise it instead of podcasters. I think what the last one twenty eighteen that is how long it's been twenty nineteen. I don't exactly remember. Maybe right this is going to be two years. Twitch make it about twitch streamers now eighteen streamers gaw people getting killed on stream okay or just just had like you know somebody be like i wanna interview michael myers for my twitch dream and then it's just the same conceded the podcasters from the original one. Which actually like. I was like in retrospect seem super stupid at the time but with all the true crime podcast. There are now a head of the curb that one. I agree completely. I don't think you're you're alone in that at all. It's funny though going into his second movie. Where you know there's a third. I know this is not unprecedented in happens a lot of times especially with like a pre announced trilogy and that but on something here. It's kinda blake you know. I don't think these movies. Tell a a real over Overarching story that is like worthy of three movies right there. Just the first one was entertaining but it was the same thing we've seen. I guess like. I guess the big story on this one is is bringing back. Laurie strode and kind of her reliving. The one thousand nine hundred seventy whatever versions of it now. That's pretty cool but ultimately when you're like you know there's a third one but you know the cool shit's going to happen to now. They're better dial up the gore in this one. Because i need to need something. There's returning people anthony. Michael hall is back. Kyle richards shout to anyone. Who watches housewives nancy stevens. Paul rudd declines with a lot of older people and character older characters from past movies. That's like one of the things and again. Maybe they show the face. They kind of tease. It a little bit. That judy greer has the math. I don't know like up for what will be a standalone slasher. I'm sure it could be cool. Could be good. But it's we're about to talk about it. We're about to talk about stakes. Like how much do steaks matter for. Certain movies we'll talk about fast and furious -duced how much stakes matter if enough because he ain't dying so which i guess we kind of knew what the last one is well. But i don't know the last one had a fairly satisfied ending. I thought so. Then he's really. It's going to be cool. Concept is far the entire town being against him now versus him just hunting down four or five people or whatever so. Michael myers on the defensive. Actually don't hate that idea. Yeah no. I mean i'll be home alone. Perverted entire count so except the reverse of the last movie was that him walking into marbles and then skating fifty feet tall manhole firefighters better chance against him in that trailer but comes also the fastest firefighters. All time i mean that house burned down shit. Yeah already burnt down. By the time we saw. That was two seconds after the fire started. Sing too a sequel to the movie sing which ended up being pretty solid movie You put mac mcconnell hayes a koala you just you know you never know synopsis. The film follows buster moon and his new cast who now have their sights set on debut. A new show crystal tower theater and glamorous red short city without connections he and his singers sneak into the crystal entertainment offices by the ruthless wolf. Mogul jimmy crystal or the gang pitches ridiculous idea of casting. A lion rock ledge clay. Calloway in their show. A callaway voiced by a bano. Buster must embark on a quest to fun the now isolated clay court swing return to the stage magic on. Hey reese witherspoon scarlett johansson turn edgerton back tori kelly. Nick kroll garza feelings. Bobby valet at coney for a williams nick offerman latisha right eric. Andrei chelsea peretti and bano in this movie. The first was was. This was a solid enemy movie and had fender thing. Yeah i i really liked erin edgerton more than anything else and. I think we've talked about this before but he has a phenomenal thing. Yeah i like anything. He's in where he gets to sing and show that off. I'm all by this. Cast is like extremely musically talented on the on the side of it where they need that and also very. I think humor talented. That's not really phrase. But you know what i mean like eric. Andrei chelsea peretti offerman. Like you're saying before like the very funny people by bobby kind of works since that sort of too so actually. I'm kind of looking forward to this daughter. Likes saying the same one. These movies look it's formulaic. They got down. They know what they're doing with this tire. Bunch of people much voice actors and it will be entertaining simply because music involved. I will say. I think about saying is i always thought matthew broderick was buster moon. I i never. I always forget. Matthew mcconaughey is there. I thought matthew broderick's in this role matthew was matthew broderick voice another animal. You don't think you're right. He definitely voices a musical animal at some point. Nathan lane voiced to producer breeding right now the mode and nathan way bush. I familiar mixing up because of nathan lane. Matthew broderick cabinet can actually go to the producers burning. I don't know why i thought I don't know. I thought that i don't know why thought that that's my only contribution to meaningful saying discourse. He played the of desperado. He was adam. Flaming and b-movie almost forgot. That might be one of your thinking of wow. I can't believe we graduated from beasts. You go see the new speaking of saying did you guys see the new ed sheeran music video. Now he's I feel like he's ripping off the weekend or isn't even like it bad habits. Yeah anyway. that's my Tangent from saying oh. Wow oh yeah this is i mean. I'm just scrubbing. But this is very weakened vibe jacking right here but which kind of joke was kind of joker vibes right. Yes exactly colorful. Joker vibes are like video at all. Now i'm getting out of their own another trailer trailers coda in massachusetts. A coach. Deaf family runs a fishing business ruby. Who is seventeen years old and the only hearing family member helps her parents and brother with the business in high school. She joins the choir club attracted to her duet part do way partner her duet partner and finds passion for singing. Her choirmaster encourage her to consider music. School chooses She has to decide between upping your family between your goals. Amelia jones Gino derbez only matlins in the movie. This is on apple. Tv plus an theaters august thirteenth purchased by apple at sundance for festival. Record twenty five million dollars accord stands for child of deaf adults apple. Another movie apple movies have been okay. I mean to two of them was a plumber. And what we let me look it was Palmer palmer was actually solid. So i take that back at palmer and then a couple. So wolf walkers really solid yes. Pretty solid greyhound was fine. The banker is fine. I think you guys on the rocks. A little more than me and then cherry was definitely the worst of that group. Said they just don't have a great movie yet is their thing. Yeah you know like every streaming service like when you start doing original productions or whatever you wanna call it like putting on movies like this you need a great movie a really great one. They just don't have that yet. Is this one it tough to say. I do like the the concept. Only because i think the the coda community i'd never really knew almost anything about instill obviously sound of metal where that was a huge influence. So i'm interested to learn anything more like in just a giving more exposure to that community. It's sick coupon to me deal. Good yes yeah and this definitely looks good i Obviously like a a huge marlee matlin fan. Because it's another actress. I kinda grew up with it. Always been around so. I was loved to see her in a enrolls but the movie looks good. I think it's Knows probably how sundance works. But like i think it's weird. I g- apple's just going around. I just mentioned like they're just like walking down the street handing out money at sundance. Just like they're like look. We're just looking for anything. We need good stuff for platforms. Please cooled anything they just need. They need again. They need the one which will get eventually just by. You know you know the bell curve or whatever you tell me mr stats man but It will happen eventually for them and maybe this is it. What am. I think it's cool. That like You know directed by Son son hater oreo John hater. I i'm sorry. I don't not pronounce metron my best But you know it is like one of those things where you'd rather see more independent filmmakers. Get the money from these types of deals like from the streaming deals than just you know hiring on You know people do sing to whatever to streaming. So i think that is good like a net win when you do get these types of movies to streaming as much as we give apple shit about it it. I like it. Yes so small. Personal story Episode or by three. That's right three the number three see. Hi rhyme industry leader in delta thc products folks. All products are formulated by biochemist. Manua say yada yada yada. You know that.

But less paranoia remember now a cbd fantastic though definitely gotta try three and why everybody our company talks about it Next up shang cheap. You trailer for shanxi and legend of the ten rings for marvel studios. I was saw. This trailer was fucking awesome though I love everything about this. We have a bit of a look at Abomination making his return to the issue for the first time since the incredible hulk movie that nobody wants to talk about except for the time they referencing civil war a little bit when they they referenced. Whatever happened in brooklyn. I believe on general ross said that i don't have time a black widow kendrick and actually seeing black wit on monday right very exciting. Know what can await But so abomination makes the return little tease the end there. This trailer looked fucking awesome. I'm very excited for change. Just has it. Has that that field that you'll expect from marvel movie where you're like i'm probably going to like it but also a little different flavor to it. I think that this gave us a little bit. More of a look as the last one is mostly just accused a little couple of actions. Maybe two or three lines of dialogue. This gives more dialogue from not even just a single leo but like some of the more supporting characters are mean. Villain tonal young and all these other guys and i'm more interested in it now because i am. I always get nervous whenever there's gonna be a movie marvel or not where it's depend a lot unseat jain. Obviously this world that we're going into is going to have a lot of that So i mean it makes me a little bit nervous especially because i was hoping that this movie would be in a sense. Sort of more practical as far as fights go But same time. I trust them. Trust the headman. Giving foggy and renominated note is that there was really good. Music in both drillers otros had an excellent choice in music. It's got one of my favorite things which is like where you do. The slow motion with somebody inspecting the slow motion. In the case of this one the water yes slows down slow inspecting of slow every time and then my other thing is is you know anytime. There's like Beams involved in a fight whenever the beams of both combatants attached to each other in their having a beam showdown. It's i think this looks really cool. I i I really like really like the fight. That's the guest. The fights that are in here. And i think like when you marvel does do i hate to call smaller fights because they're certainly now from choreography. Standpoint you think back to like the iron man and the the bucky and catfight stuff like that like any time. They do the smaller boutique type things. I usually find those more enjoyable than the large action-oriented set-pieces I hope there's like neely's from the trailer kind of feels like there's going to be everything In terms of action but does look like we're going to get some cool cool fight scenes here so excited in abomination that was like those a little rain to put them in right. Yeah right what the fuck on fair. Give me a little exactly where it's And i believe i mean so. This is part of phase. Four phase four is obviously marbles biggest phase ever black widow. It started well actually already started wattage and kicked off as for then have your black widow. Actually no okay. So division the falcon winter soldier loki black widow Shanxi eternal rocket spiderman. No way home. Ms marvel series Doctor strange multiversity madness movie hawkeye series. Thor love and thunder movie moon knight series. She hoax series. I assume she hoped. I in a little bit with shang chief. Abominations in this movie The marvels which is the Which will be tied in with ms marvel. And that's the sequel. To captain marvel ant man and the wasp mania secret invasion two thousand and twenty two than tvd on dates but iron heart. Which will be a little. Bit of an ironman type. Tien armor wars. Which will be china's. Well that's based around Rhody war machine Then you'll have guarded the galaxy volume three blade and then it wraps seems to wrap a fantastic four. Oh and black panther condom forever. That would that comes before the marvel so crazy that it is crazy like i was thinking about the other day just i was looking at the email that we got about black widow and it really is insane that it's been as long as it's been over two years almost it'll be for people to be. It'll be two years since spiderman far from home. And that's one of those things where you talked about like. Okay they're far from solid like a good rap after game. People were nervously. Maybe it's like we want a break but now any other series have been have been here as well so it's not like a full stop but it's crazy that there's been two years in between a marvel studios movie. It's pretty wild stuff. So but now it's they want you don't like marvel get ready because there's a shitload of stuff the next three years. It's all consuming right now which we even talked about it before. The pandemic happened in terms of over exposure. And i. i do think that exists than i think. There are a lot of people who are tired. Comic book movies in comic book properties. We always talked about the criticism of it But you simply cannot deny that there are a lot of these coming out soon. And i do think it probably help for Just the general audience at large a little pause in the movies to maybe build back especially since getting to the end of the the last phase which is the culmination of pretty much all the movies and all the properties up until that point is a real. Where do we go from here moment. And i think taking the pause did give a little bit of time for people to kind of separate from that. Maybe help with expectation setting at least from the perspective of the geno reception for these movies. But there yeah it's going to be relentless that's the best way to put it. But it's the best. It will be relentless We're gonna get. We're going to get thor love and thunder stickers on the dole bananas again that's when you know has just consumed everything we're going to have. What do you call. It will condon's battling versus like what's the restaurant from the ballot that can taco hut versus star wars thing from the the van menace many brands. You're gonna have sean Battling versus the talk of annoyed or something. Like i can't wait till the noise. Being back is amazing by the way love those rates at the store. I think the noise should be mainline. Mcu villain yeah hell. Yeah just minor guy. They can include the dog why not imagined. George is killing the forever by locking him into You know lightning prison. You will still pizzas no more. That seems like something that would happen in the. What if universe can't you. Can't you to see captain america like just at the table like beat him. He's just like just goes into the title card. Only one way. We must order more. Domino's avoid annoyed. Not of money in the world. Mr president though as guardians. The nord is taken all of our pizzas and going to earth to make sure that the noise no longer steals. Our fresh hot down was going to mid. God stopped annoyed. No longer where your pizza tracker. Say arriving even though it's been three hours because the noise is already consumed your pizza. I can't wait that's going to be the sequel of the fucking century. Got the fire taika for it. New western trailer resembles gang to seek revenge against the man who murdered his parents. In the harder they fall. Jonathan majors as net love. Idris elba zazie. Beetz a keith stanfield. Delroy lindo regina king thoughts on this trailer company. Netflix by jay z awesome. I remember the the the cast for this. I think like Years or so gun. Member blogging about him. Being like this is going to be amazing old school western fucking vibes all that great directing recasts like this cast is insanely stack not even just with like existing talent rising stars. I love this trailer. The stylized action like the scene. Where was coming out of that box. And like all the people fighting. And he's just walking right through it like nothing's happening almost like a quicksilver scene or something very very cool super pumped up for this movie. I thought we were gonna get a lot more. I thought we were going to get a western Like just a lot more western movies than we actually got after two thousand eighteen like i. I felt like things were trending in the direction where there was a more of a chance for popularity and eh maybe we got a little bit of it and some of that might have just come off of like my own friends reaction to red dead redemption to but i feel like there was a wild there when you know like people were getting a little more into like casey must graves and yeehaw the cowboy boots and stuff like that just as a as a general audience but i fucking loved western films like removed from all of that like i. I love the western. So anything western. I'm super excited for like. I'm not a student of the genre by any means but like any time they're on tv. I'll just watch them is the i love them. So i'm assuming i'm you know even even talking about the cast super excited about it how much much. Ptsd do you think it just got when he had that six year in his hand for the first time since the dark tower. God dude you know. I wonder like i would i want. Has he done any interviews where he's talked about that urgency too much gentlemen to like i mean. Could you feel like you get his thoughts on like what it was like. You knew news one of those things. Where like when you signed when you agree to do it. It was like being promised as the next great like zeiss series and then the day one onset re script is like. Oh no no. Don't tell you some math. Megani wearing their brooks brothers shirt with that weirdly. Died short haired. Gosh booked up fucked up that that was a very tough movie to sit through Now seeing some redemption back to getting the redeeming six shoot themselves if that makes sense not to. That was his fault still What else think. That's almost it. One more thing. Mcguire and libya wild have been cast. Longside brad pitt and margot robbie. In babylon the the new damian chazelle movie senate transitionary period of hollywood way from silent films Kademi is gonna fucking love that shit. The the entire soundtrack is this david gray.

Would you like to hear babylon on these logitech. What was it clear one. You remember the like kleenex speakers. That were clear off all the chat. They were like they were heralded as great like You know industrial design masterpiece. But i digress. I was going to make the joke of all the late in the cast has to be diesel. It's it's a ad. Mr susanville allows specify. Battling i'm riffing with you. Let's keep going this. This has sparked a debate though because people were like maguire's first movie and however many years but then people have said well as spiderman so it's it's it's pullman debate if he is in spiderman in this coming december which does sound like by the way that we are not getting a trailer anytime soon. as kevin feige more students were allowed to help with the promotion. And if you were call. Sony does all the promotion for the spiderman. Obviously they did a pretty poor job with not like showing everything in trailers so. I'm sure they're like please.

Walter houser. you're talking already reviewed actually the allegations. And we we talk kerala. A bunch of other stuff with him. It's an awesome insight on a clint eastwood or with him in the Mccall movie was richard jewel richard jewel the atlanta moving richard jewel So yeah a really fun interview with paul. After hauser got here you are joined now by paul walter houser. How're you. we did this like it. Four i did the official star. We know you're doing good. I'll give you a second attempt at answering that. So there's a bit of a double dip. We already get our own intro. You guys missed it. That's your fault My name is paul hauser. I'm an actor. I so appreciate being on the pod and get a chelsea guys I only heard good things about you. Guys from the proud boys weinstein bunch of friends of mine knowing speak right great. Yeah dave gladly man. Kevin spacey loves you guys. We spent all yesterday. We opened up the interview talking. Jeffrey toobin and this is today this role right now so we got a lot to talk about. We're going to start off with a movie that we've already talked about ready ready. Seen carello is the first one out of the game. Kerala a prequel as our audience knows to one hundred one dollars the cartoon. I might add not the live. Actual glenn close those shoutout to are not actually good friend glenn coastal color. Good friend kerala. Vo people of it summer movie. We had a great time with it as well. It is a very artsy fashionable. Fun movie that kind of breaks the mold on these these disney. Because it's not a remake. It's a new store. But these disney live action cartoon live action adaptations right. Tallies yasser as many of them to come to. This is kind of an experimental one a little bit where we didn't carbon copy of like lion king. We kind of did a little bit of a new tank in and it's familiar to some stories. Devil wears prada like there's definitely some close connections but i think it also feels like it's on movie because it has the vibrancy of dark humor and fashion and seventies rock music like i really think it kind of stands alone as its own thing it is that what drew you to this like say hypothetically mike i'm obviously money aside roles just like a bran hypothetical if the pitch were to be a recreation of the cartoon are you as interested or just because this was so different that it's the intrigues there. Yeah i would say. I'd still be interested. No matter the iteration but it does saying yes to a movie like that does have to do with. Who's involved you know. And and where. I matt in the sort of evolving journey in my career. You know two years ago. I auditioned actually more like three years ago about three years ago. I auditioned for lady in the tramp to play a dogcatcher literally and like it couldn't have been more than ten lines of dialogue in the whole so and did not get the part. I got beat up by terrific character actor whose name. I'm forgetting because lasted was martinez. He's a latino american actor. He's he's he's discounts. Double check guy for aaron rodgers a. He's fantastic. I just can't think of making my brain explode yelling. Rogers that's a role. Yeah like you know. I was begging to do that role three years ago. When i didn't have a job and i was like holy crap on being a disney movie. This is a way better movie. I think the lady in the tram probably was in. I get to do quite a bit in the film. So you know it's funny how that works out how you kind of you wait for things to line up. In the fact that creggan had denied tiny together. And the fact at a you know where i was at my career. It just seemed like the right movie to me. 'cause like richard. Jewell's more of the anomaly. Richard jewel that came out of nowhere and kind of felt like a like an accident or something. It's like the french dip. You know the dropped sandwich. Vat of olives you suddenly. It's a new menu item I i don't think our has intentional. As i wasn't aaj casting decision then we'll see if anybody gives me a lead again but i think i think i nail it in the supporting stuff i like. I like working with really big talented people who let me do my thing. Obsolete i work with their special sauce. And we make something like crow eller black klansman or whatever. Well that's interesting question. i. I've loved to hear you kind of expand on that because you have done like i mean. You're the lead in the clint eastwood movie about an incredibly well known story in this country. Maybe not as well known in-depth of the man. Because like the richard. Stolley story is just so complicated in many ways. But you've had supporting roles that people like you pop on screen. I'd tiny for example. So you do like is anything that you prefer. So you're not gonna turn down a leading role but you have more fun with that. I had turned down lead roles in india's water to like studios some of which would have been lucrative. But i'm i'm trying to do stuff that i would pay my fifty dollar arclight ticket in los angeles. I'm trying to make stuff that. Alas that people will like in. I can be a part of. I called the cool kids club show. You know i'll talk to my agents. She a and i'm like what can we do to keep the cool kids club. I wanna i wanna do jesse plemmons is doing. I wanna do. Paul dana's doing i don't do joan hills doing i. Don't i don't want to join us at common wear doughnut crumbs ray years now gifting get ruffle. I do that. I will be the best doughnut crumbs. And i'll try will treat three amer sitcom with a laugh. Track all treated like it's hamill. There's a little bit to have in like jim. Nance say your name at the bottom during the fell. Gabe reed be like. It's paul hauser in. I don't know doughnut man. Howser and walt swear the cookie jar. Go tuesday's thirty. Look for a cameo from caffeine jamie yet. No i i don't i don't know what the future holds. All probably keep getting supporting stuff but If somebody wanted to give me a lead role. I mean i. I definitely want to do that at some point again. I hope it happens. So i think one thing about this movie that i really really liked was the soundtrack and i think a lot of people really responsive to that right and that is just it helps set the vibe of the movie so much but that's all done in post so how does the director Sort of set the mood so to speak in that respect. Well he tells you not to call the sag wrapped Dims the lights. He locks the door. And you pretend you're a fan of the whole resume no Hi how does it you said set the mood. Sorry you walk right into that one the craigslist. You just sent me joel. Fry jasper down. Basically told us he said something. Like hey i want this. I want you guys to kind of feel like you've sell out of a guy ritchie movie and just walked into a disney. So why don't we play classic rock. Why don't you guys improvise a little bit. Why don't we make sure the paul's accent Feels kind of you know not child-friendly like there's kids are gonna watch that movie and they're not gonna know half dialogue cause of the accident So that's not very conducive to telling the story but it's conducive setting that tone and that has become sort of the hallmark of craig. Gillespie films is he is kind of a masterful creator of tone eitan. Wella are easy movies to screw up and he made them both out a very high level. You know extremely entertaining. I think one thing that was cool. Is that both you joel. Fry kind of took your inspiration not like directly from previous rations so to speak like the esau that you had taken some from bob hoskins right hooks and somewhere else. You guys fans of oak. Oh yeah course dude. Have all those lines ingrained in my memory of you know that i i just love that movie every part of it i love speaking glenn. Close glenn close justice in dragon players. The guy that gets thrown in the boo box at the beginning by huck what no box with scorpions dropping scorpions in a box. I mean i'm looking at supper right now. Close look glenn. Miller away jawa. Oh yeah that that is one hundred percent blend closed. There's no mistaking. Wow so weird. I love that freaking movie. But you know bob hoskins. I never forgot his dialogue when he looks up at robin williams. Any says As a panel he's just been going from netherlands solo each forgotten. Everything and i like. I used to that in the mirror. When i was like nine years old so here i am twenty years later. You know practicing that voice stealing. Bob hoskins literal voice to play horace in the move it. Would you ever follow up. Bob hoskins role in the super mario brothers movie if they did a redo of that that you're asa would so long as i'm accompanied by joke people that's the thing is here's a reality. Let's let's talk outside of to like if there's someone who's great in fashion like established like tom ford you can say the silliest thing but the moment you tell me that might that a parachute jacket is made by tom. Ford it brings credibility to what would have been perceived as ill fitter or silly so you know when someone says super mario brothers. I don't think much of it outside of being a fan of playing the games. But if you tell me that phil lord and chris miller lord and miller are producing if you tell me that jon rao wants to direct and make it like like capture the sort of weird blade runner stating that their early nineties movie tried to do like i'm in like i'll do the silliest thing if they don't people do in the silly on february dewey. With even more edgy. Blade runner vibe. Jon favreau lord and miller and maybe mean like somebody suggests that anthony ramos from in the heights of that. We've just talked about that. Oh he was great. In mario. Maybe he was he was outstanding. Let's let's go a little more serious movie wise now. We and i think most who saw black klansman absolutely one of the better movies that we've seen in recent memory you've worked with a couple pretty big time director of one of them being spike lee. That had to be pretty fucking go out and you just said it would dough people working for cool products working with spike. Lee's gotta be up there yemen. I remember reading the deadline announcement for the movies existence when it came to be and they the deadline announcement said like adam driver jordan peele spike lee. And i was like what the like. It's like someone being like a making you a burger with extra cheese bacon and a homemade sauce of which you'll only know partially some content like it was so enticing. I wanna bite into that thing. I would have worked craft service on that effing movie but You know i just auditioned. I was one of many weird looking white dudes to walk in. Act like psycho and spike. Got me. I just knew me in the room I was improvising. I was as trying to be a little fearless without being overconfident or or awkward and any doug it and you know four weeks later i was booking my airbnb for upstate. New york to go shoot black lines. And so it's it's crazy how that worked out and spike is one of those guys who if he ever called me it would unless he's like i need you to do full frontal and shoot some children know there's much i wouldn't do it that guy. It was abhorrent. He to our pod going to hear that and go now he doesn't wanna be. It's gotta have it three lined up. Peewee herman the window really stinks. it's kind of funny. You mentioned that though because something. We will always wonder with roles like that is just like playing an convincing racist awkward because we we talked to topher grace about sixty and every time a few months ago and he told us greatest dive into it. He got to give it your full effort in. That's the whole point of the acting and doing this roles. You know you really do need to give it a full effort yet for me. you know. here's an this. Hopefully some budding actors are listening to this. We'll get something out of this because it's a trick i use. Which is you know. I played a ray system. Black plans that i'm playing a serial killer for an apple limited series with tearing edgerton greg kinnear in ray liotta right now. Like i've played plenty of people. I don't approve of his behavioral functioning human beings. But the reality is you. don't go into it going. oh how do i play racists. Oh how do i play. Serial killer you find the commonality of of psychology and just black and white truth. We all have been lonely. We all have been frustrated. We all have been marginalized to some degree even our intelligence. Maybe we have. We have shared characteristics with these odious nikki. People but you gotta come at it from the commonality. If i show up at like all right i'm not gonna like this type of person. It's not going to be authentic. 'cause i like all people but i can think about the character. Being lonesome or drunk or depressed oriented income brackets that spurring some of these characteristics and suddenly that comes the identifiable make up. The audience doesn't know the difference but ivy actor. Don't grab a brillo pad and scrub myself down. After a day of shooting that path to the role. I think it's very unique case compared to some of the other we've got before When i talk about another one you roles as well which joel because that's movie we loved a ton and like you mentioned before you you've done supporting in a bunch of roles but like this you're the guy. So how do the nerves change from being like a supporting person that can shine versus like youth now can no longer really fucked up at all. Because you're the guy. It was so scary dude. There's no way the studio wanted me to play that role. That was clint all day Clint saw Tanya and some clips of a show called kingdom looking. This is the guy. 'cause i tanya unfunny kingdom a little scary and some would say overcommitted You know i think there were pieces of that and richard jewel Lighten some dark. And you had to embody volts in an i also looked like the senator senator gun i look like i look like i could be rituals brother. So you know it all just kind of lined up well I'm proud of the movie. But even though i intellectually knew i was right for it. I mean in the mornings. I be chugging iced coffee and literally slapping punching myself in the chest while blaring. Kendrick lamar like elevate worship music outta the carolinas guy. Needed some bit of something to inject belief in myself. 'cause you feel like a phony when you show up kathy bates and clint eastwood are like what do you wanna do. Paul i'm like. I don't know legends movie. I saw imposter syndrome dude. Like you can have an oscar. Still have imposter syndrome. Mike people people. So i defy the spiritual warfare going on. That told me. I wasn't good enough. And then i'll get onset. Ib improvising with sam rockwell. Crying with kathy bates and those little points does that. Make me feel small stupid. I get the clap back at them. Insane we just. We just had a seven hour day with clint eastwood. Now we're gonna go grab cocktails. John aminul of your while. They need steak. Don't tell me life sucks and dealt with mental health issues like emotionally and depression and stuff like those moments have pretty beautiful to get to walk away from a movie set realize today if even for seven hours i live my dream and i believe in my heart that i meant to do this. This character do this job and carell even felt like that combination of while. I'm an uncle to eight children. I have three siblings are all married with kids. I'm finally making something that they can watch and enjoy in revisit and closed the way that i quoted rookie of the year in the uk. Mighty as a kid. Like that's that is never lost some. It's never far from my heart and my mind that i'm getting the help fuel and feed the next generation of entertainment. I'm not. I'm not a pivotal part of it. But i'm part of china. I love that. I'm fired up. Right now hosts. That was a great speech. I'm blood's pumping man. That was awesome but speech talk. When you mentioned. Clint eastwood i mean how intimidating is it. Walking away and set like you're saying and seeing someone like him because we we had talked philippine. He told us he's grinder. Is they'd worked them on flags of our fathers in like he's and said he's trek and he's still like a young fund mountain. Yeah guy is focused and fearless confident and charming. He's everything you'd hope he'd be a but the weird thing is at ninety two. I think he's ninety two now. He just knows too much. He knows too much to doubt himself. He knows too much to mistreat people. Like he's got so many things beautifully figured out. That sets a really good environment onset. Any i don't know a ryan said about his shooting schedule. Do most were like five and a half to seven hours. It was ridiculous shifted. Mcdonald's but you're being overpaid to work with oscar winners like it's crazy. I've always heard. I've heard stories like people doing impressions very encouraging to do. Maybe like a take that he wants to link different of like he's like i don't know maybe correct me if i'm wrong but i'll here like you didn't do it right. You'll give you that assurance like that was great but like let's maybe try this yet. No year right. He does have a pretty gentle sort of hand with everybody whether it seems going brilliant or or or abysmal. He has a really delicate way a handling actors. And it's never demeaning or like patronizing. It's always like he's connecting actor to act or not director act. I think that's part of what breeds such inspired loyalty and performances on his sets. And the only other thing. I'll say about that is just like you know. Clint clinton knows when to speak. He's not gonna pull me. Aside to indulge some random thought. He's passed that. There are forty year old directors on tv episode. That will pull me aside and be like. Here's what the characters thinking. And i'm like dude stop. It's it's one thing of its convivial. We're grabbing a drink in a slice of pizza and we're talking about the show that's fine but onset like you hired me for a reason. There's gotta be some level of delegates or a trust and end with free came to eastwood. It's like he distrusts you implicitly. You do whatever the hell you one. And then at the end of a take the only note he'd give me like pace it up a little bit. That's great but you're molasses like he would use the word skip to my loo. He took go. That's good little more little more. Skip to my little crack up laughing. Skip to my louis older than the bible is so funny i would look at clinton dated yourself. He said skip to my lou fleiss area. I love that guy You you've edgy. Tanya couple times are aware of you. i'm sure you are. You play the roles but you're very ingrained in the olympic stories. Cinematic universe basically about you. What's what's the next olympic story for you. Wild doesn't cast kerri strug movie. I out that way guy. There's to be a dream team. Michael phelps movie. I don't know what it is. I've been waiting for a munich to equal to munich. Concern raggedy clip. What's taking them so long island bannock and one one more quick thing with tawny not totally tied to relieve ninety. Saw you talk very briefly about it in an interview. I want to say with a bit. I don i forget where it was but it was a few days ago. You talked about being on the winner. Soldiers book and captain america winter soldier. Well i'm saying that right. But i'm also saying it. Wrong spoiler alert. I guess you mentioned how cool that was. And you mentioned that. You want to work with sebastian stan again. Just if it's something. That's the level of tanya but but i is a marvel connection. Maybe they're like. I don't know there's something that peaks picture interest. Yes what's his name. Is sebastian stan. That he's a big fan of mine. It's weird you keeps. You keeps me up. He keeps his projects really really aggressive. That's that's the best word i can use without getting in legal trouble you. I love that guy. We we hit it off on a tiny. I did not know he was gonna put my name in buckeyes book or whatever in the show as cracking up because i just. That's the kind of thing i would do that. Somebody's so the fact that he did. It just proves why we're friends. Yeah i'm hoping to do now. So that he and i really wanted to wrestling movie about ric flair in art anderson He'd play rick. I play orne That's a possibility. I also talked to him recently. About try we're both erupted ca. I wanna hit them up and see if they may be gets like david mann speed the plow like the play out of to make a film of speed the plow. That'd be i'm i'm friendly with mamat. He's a fan of mine. A fan of his and sebastian are dying to do something on on a high level. Because when you when y time together and you love it and it gets three oscar. Nominations a win. It's like we don't want to settle for less we've already tasted victory already tasted the parent. I don't wanna go to idaho. That's sorry i remember. I think when episode aired. I was up at three. Am to watch it falcon winter soldier. That is and i think i do at three. Am eastern east coast time and then the picture. And i was like dude. You fucking guys book and you're in the light doesn't your hydro though. I don't think he's awake. Yeah that's bad news for you. I you know what. I've been waiting to get the call for marvel as never received one and that's okay Lured saluda didn't play the joker. I'd start crying. Yeah i don't care. I hope i work with those guys. But if i don't it's not the end of the world is secretly. I you know. I have an interest in i would love to take over the whole cra mark ruffalo or a maybe play the staying in fantastic floors and oh yeah coming off that that would be but also stunt cast at ethan. So clearly in the of the thing even. I'm betting i don't think he's jacked now to do awesome. I'm so i don't even know him. I'm just like proud of them. And i really enjoy his work to the years. I always feel better okay before we go. I want to run something by you. there is a blog that i did twenty nineteen with robbie fox. If you've talked to before. I is so i cast it the ultimate eighties wrestling movie and as a connoisseur on yourself i would love to get your take on my picks what you got. Let me hear cam and share the screen. So you can see them as dr kickoff that please go back to the wrestling list. Okay so here. We go got this. The first one gerard butler as ready piper. Hit me Well cast by way of look. But i don't know if gerard can do comedy and rodney's got to have some comedy. He's got some like the bounty hunter you ever watched that movie with jennifer aniston. He was pretty good and he's kind of funny. Yeah i'm sure my mom loves them. I look at your first line of defense at the tough one. Listen if cast in roddy piper at the age in that photo he looks like hell await forties i go sam rockwell over gerard butler fair enough. All right next up david. O'hara's bret hart. I think the look is there. That's all his literally. Perfect and david is an he. I believe he's scottish correct. I believe so. Yes yeah. I think he can do the accent thing too. 'cause 'cause the europeans are better at the accents in the american cy. I'm going to cosign. David o'hara okay i co-signed next up christine new played at Game thrones as jim duggan. The book is there. But i just wonder how big is or isn't or real isn't christian. Really big he's belief six seven. I wanna say yeah. I mean i think i would cosign that right now. Because there's not a ton of people that could play him duggan's they'll be a tougher to get right now. This is my favorite one personally. Vin diesel as iron sheik.

Dominic toronto and his brother jacob don rallies living the quiet life off the grid with letty and his son but they know that danger always lurks just over the peaceful horizon. This time the threat forces dhamma confront indiv- his past his brother to save those he loves most his crew soon comes together to stop world-shattering plot by the most skilled assassin and high performance driver. They've ever encountered jacob. Is he forsaken brother. He's not he's shitty f nine they nine fast and furious movie Sort of. It's really the tenth if you count hobson shaw but the main line movies it is the ninth i. It's a muddy time line that only gets muddier and more ret conned the only way they can go though. It's it's like when you get to this point. There's no there's no such thing as like not being sloppy. It's the only thing you can do. It is a spoil review by the way of turn off. You don't wanna hear anything also a movie that doesn't really have an ending. It's set up for another movie like right like that's this movie just sets up another movie more or less. Yeah no what's the wrestled. There's no real resolution in this movie right like jacobs. Okay now. I mean yes. It's like that it did the whole thing like this series has the whole like Rpg thing of the villain now being a good guy like now like a half of the team is like former villains not that much but the resolution of the movie i guess it just ties into the overall point in the movie where it's like i guess i guess the stakes are higher. Because now you're doing all these crazy things but it doesn't feel as important or critical as it didn't fassa furious savitt. Everything feels like less fun to me. It's it's this and here okay. Here's the struggle. Here's a struggle. Because i will say it's a terrible movie and knocking like furious. Seven had a perfect ending like like honestly for a franchise. That is what it is and as dumb as it is furious. Seven had one of the better franchise endings. You can have emotional. Obviously part of that was not by design. You obviously rest in peace paul walker. That is not what they wanted to happen but they took a shitty situation. They found a way to make this really emotional and awesome ending that even the most cynical inferior hater even go. Okay that was. That was cool. Cool ending to a franchise at whether you like it. Or not people on the franchise. I'm not gonna hold that against feet like furious fast and furious nine that they probably should have had the two moves go because they gotta make money. I get it the franchise people like. But here's here's the issue for me. It's not a it's not an awful is not like for me like two fast. Two furious terrible terrace agree. I know you're inc it. Tokyo drift heinous not even same league. Those two movies tokyo drift. Grievously bad this is nowhere near that bad. But it's gone to a point. Where i'll i even. I even defended fate of the furious to an extent. Hobson showers was kind of awesome. Honestly i think the second best franchise but now it's just your neither really defending like like i get defending this movie. But now i don't even think defending like the campinas because now it's just so self aware it's just so self aware that it's not funny. It's just not fun to me. Nothing about this movie was it was fun to watch it on the big screen like i had a good time watching it but nothing about this makes me wonder like actually. I don't ever want to watch this movie. None of it not actually think much of it was memorable like. Wow these have like a memorable moment of memorable chase and the space thing was all that memorable there was nothing that stuck out to me even the absurdity and they addressed it very like ted has a like you talk about know. We never get scars like there's like they go through all this stuff like we're invincible like the now that we're like really just saying it it's it's too much it's that i thought he was for. Sure gonna die out of those set up for them to die a section. That would have been great. Yeah it's just not it just doesn't it's lost all its stakes. And i know that there weren't stakes beforehand. But at least like you could have got away with it. A little bit now is addressing. Your nothing is ever gonna fuck it happy people and when you when you just address it the whole movie it loses. I think it loses. It's fun like the charm was there because it was self it was they were of self-aware like what it just became self aware but it wasn't a self aware of like here. It is spelled out on the screen. So that that's my main issue with this movie is that it's just. It's far too on the nose at this point And that that doesn't that doesn't really work for me. It's not the worst thing of all time but it's well below average i'd give it a fifty six yet. I'm i'm going to give it a fifty five like i do. Think there are a lot of positives in there from an overall like action Seen scripting or quote unquote set piece design. Or whatever you call it. There's nobody better than just inland like he's he's still got that like in the you know he's still got a lot left in the tank. That and i think even though i gave it a fifty five like as long as a keep doing that in these movies keep okay washing the ship. Okay like he can get dumber and dumber. I'm going to keep watching it. I'm a fast and furious fan for life. Like nothing's ever gonna turn me off from this franchise like i get it. That being said the the whole over arching story is just not interesting to me in a way that like everything really felt to come to a natural resolution in furious seven or maybe not natural but it was a resolution. That happened at the time because of events in terms of of paul. Walker's death kind of you. Know if felt very organic for the franchise and on top of that like the moments in the enjoyment of the film felt very organic coming out of that especially like you had this pop culture. Crossover song you again with the the music being everywhere and in the movie being everywhere it felt like i felt like everybody was having a good time talking about fast and furious and enjoying it now. All the fast and furious discussion really just seems to be out. Like the movies in the franchise Or things like that. And i think like we're kind of at the end of what i considered to be good fast furious mainline movies unless they adjust something pretty dramatically. That's my big worry at the movie. pieces just was like ok. Okay there's there's a decker Shaw's mom boy and she driving a mclaren with a by the way that mcclain would not have that. Stick shift in there. I maybe some gear. Maybe some gearhead can correct me. That was like an austin powers level. Like eight ball. Stick shift in a very new mclaren or wasn't aston martin. It was a british car. Cool as score though and she looked good doing it. I mean would you think. Can jack like you will get your take and then we can talk about more all right so i think it's very dumb movie. It's very loud very very fast and the furious. And i also think it's entertaining. And that's what you want from this franchise and also summer blockbuster. In general. I also think that justin lin knew that and he definitely takes a little bit of a heat check in this movie as far as suspension of disbelief and meta jokes which don't always pay off and it makes it weird to try to review this move because it almost reminds me of like with luca last week. Or whatever where it's like you have to read it objectively but also relatively for what it is and what it's trying to achieve so like objectively. It's dumb loud nonsensical trashy script impossible to believe action. But that's also what they want. It will most fans of the furious franchise in general kind of want as well. But it's also like more of amid a conversation. But like i think it's easier to stick with what i think Would they could have improved with this movie. I think number one. It had a huge villain problem because jacob sucked bad and like south he sucked in theory. I like him as roma's brother. Because both john cena end vin diesel have like that gears of war proportion body and like that sort of action star level. And i love that. He just wasn't interesting in the cipher. Mr thing was really stupid and that guy auto was like maybe one of the worst villains. I think i've ever seen introduced into an action story. He was useless in the background of everything did not get any fuck about what was going on him. The like the macguffin tetrahedral thing that they had whatever that was called also very stupid. Just make it. Nukes make a new panel. Would care like there's a couple of issues just with that the villain end of it in the end goal of villains like if those are just fixed i would have had much more phone this movie. I don't think it's as bad as fate of the furious. But i think it's right in the ballpark of fast and furious. Two sixty nine out of one hundred. I enjoyed it for what it was. I definitely think there's a lot of room for improvement and i know it again. It's festive fears. It's hard to say that but it's true and the biggest miss of this entire movie. Why was there. No vin diesel song house. The vin diesel sung through. What the fuck was that man. The okay i'm gonna bum wind up to sixty because i think optically the sixty makes more sense because the fifty five i think in the fifties too tough because you convinced me that i was having fun when i was watching the movie but it also was fun in lake. It wasn't as much fun. I'd been having in previous fast and furious installments. And i don't know exactly how to quantify with this franchise and that's the problem. I can't tell you what it is. It's a vibe impasse. The vibe check no but like i just feel like you know nothing was as fun as when we are like driving cars out of a building and landing into another building like that was like that was kind of the right level of ridiculous for me it and now go ahead god and it just it just feels like even with the soundtrack. There was only one song that stood out to me. It was the the prodigy. Breathe remix or sample with the I don't know who did it but that was like a really cool as seen but again now is in. the flashback. Whole flashback like you talk about like reckoning and adding lower as you go. That's that's a big addition. They needed to run now. Hopefully like they ran that by the council that over fast and furious can time universal. Whatever the timekeepers a fast and furious. I'd love that. The canon room for there must be a fucking disaster. Who's i'm sorry. i forgot his name. Who's the baloney. What if there is a baloney for like fast fast franchise. He's like six foot five. Two hundred and thirty papa hound guy with like four percent body fat and he just. He just wears around no shirt in the bag. Shortly you see all day and just makes up can and on the spot massive boots. He's got shorts. Down passes knees is names like like fucking neck. Cypher saint clair or something like that. Just the weirdest name over here. I love that guy. His name is like zander because yeah they underage now just his his changes name after seeing triple x. and then to get involved with vin diesel. Somehow and he's just grinded his way. There will lose into so. I think my issue again. This is what's weird is that i i hate being. I hate being the anti fast and furious like anti-fun fast fears but like i've liked the previous and that's where my issue is that they didn't need to be so head on and so on the knows about addressing the campus and the like who who is like everybody gets it already. Everyone goes into this knowing what to expect right. You don't think you need to qualify and was like they're apologizing for it like. I don't think that's necessarily takes away so much because i think like the photos already largely taken away by how much they have to address the red concert. How many fucking flashbacks there are. I oh christ. I want to spend any less time with younger dom toronto if fight like i'm here for dom vin diesel. Not other. no offense the actor. I don't want other dumb. I we we spent time with young dom teredo it's cut. It's called the two thousand and one movie even having michael shelby play young. John cena was just absurd. Though is one of the weirdest casting choices that the guy i've ever seen and and other picky binder fans will will note that i'm sure as well. That was just bizarre choice for john. Cena which johnson is height. I would guess six to john. Cena six six one hooker. Actually five eleven. Probably actually. most people can't judge there naked. I i mean vin diesels vin diesels listed six foot. So about the same size. So they i would. I don't know a diesel easier to understand this movie than the past couple ones. Because he's really like stop enunciating. Speaking in these movies is sufficiently. But that's what he actually like projecting a little more. I appreciated that for men. I think there's a lot of the one thing that i think they should have done. Here with han missing arm or something should have been like really fucked up from that you know he just up in the car fucking exploded and he was totally the. Nobody got him out though. That didn't even didn't even bother whatever. Like i come to expect that it's just again. It's like if felt like. They were almost apologizing for how ridiculous the movie was. 'cause i didn't multiple times and i just don't waste my time on that right. Like don't don't don't need you. I get it we get it. We've done nine of these before eight of them in the main line. It's okay like just let it that. That's where again that's where lose me. It took me out of the fun of it. Which it's not that i need to like. Lock my brain into these movies. But like that's the unfortunate thing. It's no different than we were. Gods overs call like this movie is made in a box. Facific way for civic. John rushworth facific type of that movie. But we start over explaining and trying to tackle it head on you lose the fun that allows you to enjoy that i think at the right amounts of a right levies. I didn't read it so much as that as so much they were. I felt that they kind of embraced it a little bit and that that part of it didn't bother me as much as the just. They needed a really good film. The action movies. And i know that already embraced it in a lot like they've always they've always embraced it if you like at least that's why i don't feel like there was any less in this or any more of like apologetic as much like people like when things are more explain i think for the most part like for us like i think we'd like when things are left unsaid or when things aren't really put in that sense but i think for most audience. Especially of like big blockbusters. They like things to be. Put out more plainly. If that makes sense. And i i just i really do think that they embrace that in a sense the action was their car chases. Were there the hand to hand fights. I realized the fight like it was a basically the all girl fight in want you. I thought it was. The best action was really cool. I like the magnet thing. Seen that before it didn't matter as cool the big ass fucking military trucks are really sick. I i liked all that again. It just comes down to me like it didn't have like a jason from type villain. You know what. I mean it. Didn't they needed a really really good bad guy and they just didn't have it. I don't know what they have done a fix it. Maybe instead of having a three headed dragon of cypher. Auto and jacob i just have one of them and make them give him like more of a back story or whatever but like. Get rid of cypher. Cypher stinks really bad. Both movies she's been terrible and also. Just get rid of auto. That guy was horrible. I also and you can touch. And this i also feel like a big with on not letting jacobs be the villain start to finish like they set up another movie like his turn to being good was so again like movies are but if you're setting up another movie let him be the villain the whole way through. I just the big myths. Would i one. I don't think johnson ahead to be jacob. Teredo here. I don't know what it was but like having them be related setting up that whole back story like even though. I think the opening scene was very cool. I just like the it just makes it messy. I want it streamlined. I want it slick. But i agree with you in the sense. And that's what i'm talking about like the final fantasy stuff where it's like all the final fantasy games you believe. Somebody's the main villain for seventy percent of the time and then it turns out. There's like a day x. montana behind the scenes who's actually the main villain. And i don't i don't like that and i think that's like i mean done it with shawl. And they've done it before in this franchise to wear know kinda see them be anti heroes or whatever to wear like. I think they should just set up jacob. Toronto is maybe three film to film art. Bagai left this one in most of the clip cliffhanger in terms of like jacobs about to destroy stuff and then they gotta figure out in the next one. We just talked about halloween doing that. But in complaining about it so. I'm not unaware that but it felt like when you kind of do that. It's almost like you're just saying well. Okay like maybe the stakes really weren't that high. Then if if this guy is so bad that he can easily be convinced to be a good guy. I don't really know. But then again i come back to just saying it's the fast and the furious and this is what it's supposed to do the weirdest part for me and this is the big question i have from. This movie is obviously Jordana brewster comes back and she. She wasn't in fate right. 'cause use using furious seven now. She was in fate in no. She was a photo only. I'm trying to remember 'cause in fate they reference. Brian wasn't there that scene. Where i maybe we should call we. Brian a call and then they're like no. Let's let them. Chilly wants out at the end. He names his son. Brian so like you always have references to the character which i completely understand but it is weird to bring her back You kind of have to do that because jacobs there to like. Have the both of them. You know reconciler jacob but the ending left me feeling a little bit weird you know. One is like brian o'connor showing up to the the family picnic. And he's going ninety in a residential zone and his skyline r thirty two. Or whatever that you could make it to your. They like all brian showing up in you just beers cargo on the background meeting. There's gotta watch out. You gotta be safer than that. But it is lake. It is kind of weird that you know we always talk about. Don't like if you're doing something. Don't reference the good times that we used to have in kind of making like brian. Still present in this franchise. Despite paul walker being passed away like it just reminds me of furious seven and missing what we used to have in lake from a viewership perspective. It just it makes me cognizant in this kind of depressing part of the fact that like i do think the furious seven was probably the peak of the franchise and i down. I'm not gonna stop watching these. Like i said but i think now we can maybe start discussing. This is a twenty year old movie franchise. They're gonna keep making it. Obviously they'd done a spa a spin off. They might do another spin off. Who really knows. But it is like weird from an it's so nerdy i'm mostly concerned together like having actual points about the movie and i'm just more concerned with the fast and furious cannon but the decision to kind of keep brian still in the picture despite Obviously not being able to see him is is is very odd choice. That people generally probably do like. I think that was like common. Nice way to end it because it does give you that. You know that warm good feeling in your stomach but from a standpoint of like when you continue on the movies can you really keep continuing on this path of just like saying like oh end of every movie like brian just shows up and then now like bryan doesn't want to be involved with mugniyah. Toreros still kind of in it. I don't really know. I don't know what the answer is there. I mean that's a tough spot. Obviously that there's no real right way to do that. Also missing speaking of characters the rock. Yeah yeah there there there. There's a lack of charisma there. There's there's a lack like he. He's not been in all of them but he's been in basically all of the good ones like right like there's there's a pretty common denominator there and even fate of the furious he was in. It wasn't great but he added there was something there that was clearly missing her. I thought he was going to show up positive. The end ended up being decorate shaw. He's going to be in ten. Apparently i believe that's the case. I may be wrong on that. But i'm pretty sure they reconcile the going to be in ten. I i think. I think you're missing. You're missing the rock the cr- again the crazy thing for me. Is that what you will get the first movie. It was what it was and you know what it really wasn't terrible at all. It's stupid but it it for what we intended to be solid for me below average with solid. We can jack. You're afraid of the fat too fast to guy. You can go back and forth that tokyo drift. Whatever fast and furious was was bad and then all of a sudden like fast five was awesome and six but solid above average furious. Seven awesome fate very great but like passable. hobson shaw. Oh they're getting better but like fate of the furious and then this one it kinda drop back off again. I don't you know. I don't know if the exact right answer for that is and i don't know if you can never recover from a ten movie series where it started about stealing. Vcr's and now they're literally in space being saved by another country's astronauts but call the millions by the way very direct universal studios universal marketing push there. And also. It's like. I said the quote that i liked the most was this is looking for. Where's waldo in harry potter world. That's just fast. Baby harry potter world. The theme park we all think about what was the moment in. What was the moment for you though. Is there a moment. That was because like when you talk about ridiculous stunts shit you always think about the bridge scene right where the jumps car. What was the one for you and this because for me. When lead he gets launched into the air dom catches her with the hood of his car. Yeah those sick. Which would how much of a difference would that have made by the way like it leads an extra three feet to the ground. It's a lot of absurd that this the thing we got from the trailer. That'd be still got see in this. That the swing around of the car attached to the side of the bridge post. Or whatever i'll fucking crazy. Yeah oh my. I love that shit. I heard ozzy. Like i like the chuckle. I'm okay with the laugh at absurdity. These movies catching jacobs car with the drone hilarious awesome believable. And that's the part i like. I like i don't mind it gets ridiculous in the actual act action sequences. It's just you don't need to tell me that it's ridiculous right like that's that's worth wasting my time. You're wasting away and you're making it too like i dunno. That's again i like that. That's what i expect. It's like it's almost like an apology for it. that was. I'd laughed out loud. I laugh justice. The second time i saw it too because that thing is comes out of nowhere and just catches car and blasts away port the port that made me chuckle wasn't really an action scene. But it was like it was when queenie was like getting the jewelry and the dom just like comes into the frame. And what's up is she's like you're looking for my son's not this time a i mean i've liked that like i. I don't know i go back and forth. I don't know what it is. I will i will say it's a very solid sixty my my you say should i go see nine. Say yes i think. I think it's like it's pretty much the first event movie You know like now that people are comfortable going back to the theaters. It's i think it's the one that people are going to see when they have that level of comfort in so. I do think you know this is this. Is something worse seeing something worth worth catching if you liked. The fast and furious franchise You're probably gonna like this one. But i would be hard pressed if you were going to put. It is not. I don't feel like it's going to be in people's top five now going. I'm trying to say like i. I don't think it's there. And i don't even know if fate of the furious was so it's it's kind of not expected it just leaves you like everything else today. Like most of the discussion around movies now fits into like what's the overall meaning from a meta perspective in terms of the franchise and in terms like. Where do they go. Or how do they build upon this. And i think that's the biggest reason to see this movie because now you start thinking about what's next for fast and the furious and i don't know the answer to that because like i don't really know what i want anymore. I look they won't do it. They will not do it but good. God how awesome you. They just killed off like three people in the first ten minutes. The next movie right explosion doodoo gi joe to. That's what people love. Yeah that's people often say they like. Gi joe like the stakes are higher dating tatum. The i promise that i see. I don't think i don't think they could do that. I think that would like that. Betrays the entire thesis of fasten soda dom going against family in the last one but that as forced he was put into a bad position. We knew all along don's was made a gold. We're watching that toyota. He's not a bad guy. Come on dom hereto but the whole the whole thing to the family is is. The whole thesis of this thing is like us. Keep getting added to this family. It doesn't matter as long as in the end. You apologize dedom- toronto. He's fine near would we didn't agree but still remember. They're they're filming. They're going to start filming this. Oh also by the way for those who didn't know furious tennis like a two part movie literally ten and eleven but that's how it can apparently end and that's what i think they should have done with this one with jacob blake. That's my thing like i. Don't i think they rushed making him. Good he's going to be a guy. Let him be bad throughout the glints to ken. Jack's point right at least it was a struggle to get their me by the annual okay. That was a worthy villain but he just turned like he was interesting. What they should have done is Is an hobson shaw. Coming out before f ten. That actually don't know like jacobs should Should've been bad. And they should have found some way to we've jacob into hobbs and shaw and built him up a little more in hobson shaw and then have him come back in. You know the next one own mind minded. That don't know what you do with jacob to make him more interesting but also it's funny just when you're reading the synopsis earlier in. They're like he's they're going against the best assassin driver they've ever come across. It was not particularly good at either of those thinks. In fact the the entire movie was him just fucking up we win ever queenie was pretty good at driving from what i saw the movie where he was better than driving. Are you telling me. My eyes are deceiving me. Pull that emergency brake darling. Love that shit mclaren fast and furious. Nine yeah. That's it i mean. That's it on fast. Furious nine. I want you to f nine you. It is in fact. I'm sorry. I'm just a stickler for the naming conventions nine the fast saga. Why did they drop the half nine the fast saga the i hope they call. Hope the next one's like they do the whole thing. I mean if they don't the only reason they may not be. If that's that's an inch they just don't want to be too similar to like weird the channel but yeah but it is. It does feel like growing up in pop culture when things get to the tenth installment late. You gotta start using the roman numerals. It's gotta be fancier it's just stylistically. It looks better. You're right you're right my friend What's next the next movie we're doing doing the is is that cherries in the movie. Ice wrote on netflix. Hell yeah walked last night. Was that the won miss lawson time of the year to come out by the way. Yeah tariffs timing. The grownup grownups movie daddy's home two. I don't know but he's made to winter movies since then. That's right loves the cold this motherfucker after that. I don't know what we'll do after that looks like. Oh the forever purge. Maybe every time. I see that i viscerally mad when the guy goes. This is the other purge a forever purge. He doesn't even try to deliver the line. It pisses me off so much now. We'll do we'll do tomorrow. War after that prime video. That one's going to be a full stinker. We do that one. Boss baby family business back in business is out soon and then we have black widow. Not long after that which is awesome. Tomorrow is being heavily promoted now by the way. I don't know if you guys have picked up on this. I have amazon studios. it has a lot of the people you know in love though. If you've been yeah more and other people know if you've been watching handmaid's tale it has Yvonne stern Who is is a very good on that show but then j. k. simmons betty gilpin. I'm just excited to shred it. I like i like to glow glow lot an nba. Beyond that. you're right. There's names that i recognize but don't tomorrow war because the other war. Tamara war is the tomorrow war folks directed by chris mckay amount. I'm actually looking forward to this. I don't think it's going to be good but who knows not my head all right. Let's do a draft movie in car draft movie and tv car draft. Ken jack europe. I myself controlled on the audience. You've audience czar. Today i think you do. We do have an audience early. Pull up my schmidt. Google sheets are thought. I just thought uses something so different audience sheets place. Let me put my sh- meet. Let me pull up my schmidt before we after they quit. God dang it. Yeah okay so any movie or tv car simple as that our audience are is the oh y the underscore he has a legitimately pretty good list so the audience is gonna fight with europe. I all right with the first pick. I'm gonna have to go with the mustang. Gt from bullet. It's fucking awesome and people are going to get pissy about it but it is honestly earnestly in bullet the coolest car i've ever seen onscreen and like when you watch him drive it and it's like a little like they really wanted to get the car out there. You know what. I mean to get people to buy it but it is such a fucking cool car in the way that the steve mcqueen like maneuvers it throughout that movie. It's awesome sounds cool. Looks even cooler. It's like a dream car of mine. I've always wanted that color to the forest green. Yeah people are gonna get mad because never mind. I think the next couple of picks will reveal. I think this is like this the coolest tv car that you'd actually want to own and drive. Yes so for me and this is like there's other dresser i'll go for the audience this draft. I'm drafting only for me. I want these cars so bad. And i will not be apologetic about an easy one for free one time. Lorient explain it back future. That's like the unanimous. Pick for a lot of people jeff. It's a bad pick. But that's what i was trying to say with my previous points like most people probably go to that one. Yeah if you if you had a delorean you would drive it though right. Oh yeah why. Wouldn't we absolutely Is it's my turn. Yeah yeah yes. I'm going with the nineteen nine batman battle. Yeah i actually knew you fucking thick. That i actually went to go it down on my list and i didn't because i knew i wouldn't get it because i figured you'd go get you take it. I there you say. Say whatever you want about the director of that movie and his career in the last thirty years but they nailed this stupid asbat mobile because it is lincoln rate is lincoln so i don't remember what it was but it just it has like you know it's it's it's weirdly phallic in a way you can't describe it kind of like looks like zeno more car it has a lot of you know with the. The flares of the bag has a lot of elements of thirties and forties car design. But the main thing is the turbine on the front. That i love or whatever that is like the nipple on the batmobile sure i just love how long the I just love this batmobile. I can't tell you why. I feel like you did it. So it's awesome. It's an awesome fucking car so audience number one pick. I feel like a lot of people. Don't like it. let a younger people. Maybe maybe the tumblers really cool to maybe younger people identify with that but the oji now that was the batmobile. I thought of growing up. So the tumbler. Doesn't you can't flex enough in the town. I know you see the tumbler. Tommy okay that's fun. That's to advance with the nine hundred. Eighty nine batmobile grad. Batman doesn't really need that cool car coming up correlative. Deville car all right. What are the audience of two picks in a row inject the audience originally had nineteen nine. Keaton batmobiles number one. They had the delorean as their number. Three they're going to have to settle on their number two of the. Oh y pick the nineteen sixty six adam west batmobile Which i think is a very or that. One is definitely a lincoln so i agree with them. There and west bat mobile With their next one they're going to pick the james bond aston martin db five another great. Pick baxter yeah. The goldfinger car. Yeah you're correct. Sky fall right. I want to say yes right broke it. They broke it back out. Yeah i want to say with sky fall back around the trill. Because i don't really have a unanimous second pick but i've always loved the pontiac transam from nightrider sukit get your kid from knight rider. One i had like. When i was growing up i had a little car kid car. That was knightrider. And you can press a button and talk to you. I've always loved more. But i'd say would you like a cheeseburger mis- mis- mister off. You can take that and a lot of directions with his car on that joke. But i'm not going to go there this car. You wanna talk but then it has had the light bar at the front of the car which was cool at the time. Would you turn off the talking feature. If given the option would you wanna talk. Kit depends would like how smart would be like. What kit actually be like fully cognizant. A i like in the tv show or would it be like siri. It has to be fully cognitive. It'd be no you mean you're getting hit. You're getting kit. Yeah i. I wouldn't. If i had kid i wouldn't turn off kit if it was like someone trying to some like a silicon valley guy trying to replicate kit in only ends up with lake. Here are the nearest starbucks. I wouldn't want that but if it was talking to me like please put your pants back on. Like i would want that kid i like to drive my underway. Okay it's too hot outside. Trill please please. Put is driving around the summer. The heat the heat cedars on in your boxer briefs kids just like please stop. He's always dropping trowel and kit and next one's tough next one is tough. I'm going to have to see i'm going. I'm just going iconic goofy car. I'm going back to one. Cosponsors worn. That was also the list very soon why. I felt like i needed that. Yeah i mean the ones awesome. I'm excited the one of the new movie. Just has that fucking really sick eighties like movie. Look to it just one of the things that if they were had to remake a car now it would never look like that it would look that wacky an iconic will. It's funny when you think about it because it's a it's a nineteen fifty nine cars so like when they made ghostbusters. Say twenty five years old like in by that point like part of the joke in that was that was like a beat up old looking car. But you couldn't go back twenty five years and get like a volvo. You know nine fifty and do that same thing today. It's kinda cool. How much car design headed vance between then and then it's advance in a lot of different ways but like the design languages from a whole different era this one. That's what makes a cool and the name is on was an awesome name barry cool. I'll say the committee that decided that ghostbusters. Like we're gonna name the carbon needed ten guys in heater figure. This out can't focus. Oh i got an echo to. I like that. It's going to beg the question of where's echo one take I'm upright yet back to back all right first one. I'm gonna go with one of my favorite ones. When i definitely want to own nazi a jurassic park jeep dress. Park jeep socal specifically in their color. And that's a great. That wasn't even on my list that that is one of my all time favorites so fucking cool the sahara colors on it and everything with a little bit of red trim on it as well had to pick that In the it sounds like an unachievable car to get. You know what i mean like. The bullet is one that would cost me like a hundred thousand dollars to get to put either get and put together or get fully finished nearly impossible. I feel like it's like a ninety. Two probably wrangler. I would imagine that's not impossible right now. I see i. I do think a lot of those old gps appreciated in price just because you know people like the older jeep. Look i i do see like even newer gps were. I don't see it that often. I don't live and like 'cause played car world. But i have seen people do their jeeps jurassic park design motifs. Yeah with that. And i've also seen old explores like that when i got my original jeep. I was broken down. I had to replace the alternator the radiator in two other major components. It didn't cost me. Money in. The whole thing was running forever like soon as i got everything replaced. I can never had another issue again. Love that one Okay next car. I'm going to have to go with another car. Absolutely love to own and this would sit in my garage whatever forever. It'd be almost not embarrassing drive but have to pick the shack. You're shag is amazing. It's awesome powers car threat. Opening movies is so fucking cool. Rip off of the s martin. Obviously but the fucking british flag on it all the doodads and stuff in inside it. I love the shag. You're growing up. That was one of the coolest cars and tough to beat that name. It's just an amazing in the shag and basil exposition. Calling in on the phone thing. I like to think. Mike myers came up with that himself. Yes absolutely one hundred percent. I would bet almost anything. He's what type of car issue. Dr mike shag you are would would with shag baby. Oh man see now. I'm not in love with a bunch of other stuff But i'm gonna. I'm gonna completely in the same vein as goethe but i'm to go the blues mobile crashed through mall. Like it's i that's again. That's very similar to echo one. They're fifty car cop cars to their doom. I love that you just have to. Yeah i had. I had the poll. All right troll your amused. Two categories two major categories. Cool cars that you'd like to own cars that added to the movie by either fitting in with the characters are not necessarily want you. You don't This is a latter category. But i think is an example. And i know like the everybody talks about this series all the time how great it is and whatever but the inclusion of the pontiac aztec into breaking bad or the aztec. Yeah into breaking bad in terms of like showing woodlake. How down walter white was in like how yet how just completely like beat up by the world in terms of you know. They didn't show what came out in two thousand and eight thousand nine in the pontiac. Aztec had been disk as. I don't i 'cause i'm writing upon it. As tech had been discontinued by that point and it was a laughingstock when it came out because it was incredibly ugly. But the car. Actually kinda did pave the way for a lot of what we consider to be modern crossovers. Today i don't think it gets enough to deserve respect however walter white driving. This was the ultimate like matchup between the character and the car because the car is so lame. He ran someone over with it at one point. Remember you like kill someone. Attacking jesse runs over his getting a car jesse and they ended the episode as agree pick. I think it was. I think they even painted a colored. Never came out in the factory like it was a screen. Right has one and not was like lime green or something. Yeah i mean it was. It was a super gross car. But honestly if you look at like everything out there today it's not too far off. We just went ready for the aztec yet. Yeah i agree. that's fantastic. pick Audiences upright audience is up next up back to double picks I pick very relevant to this review. He picked dom dodge charger. I think that's a great pick because it is car this like it interested. Also that was me my pick on the way around. That's tough if i mean dumb has an awesome dodge charger. I think it's great. Pick and then. I think ru having only our second forty-eight into the tv or Third 'cause the Batmobile the data most one he picked the mystery machine from scooby doo. I think that's another. That's an iconic car. You know so i do. I understand that. And i feel like because we're all kind of taking this dreadful differently. I would never want to drive the mystery machine but like it is an extremely iconic car so cumbersome thing to drive around especially when you're talking dog in the back i don't think like in the context modern vehicles though the mystery machine can't be that big like if you compared to with other dish like the mystery machine probably is pretty small. But you do like you do get all that room. And the mystery machine to solve mysteries in Smoke weed with your dog. When when it velma become the hot one. When did that transition happen. I do. I don't know i don't know when when when nerd culture became pop culture twelve kinda felt like everything kind of became like that in two thousand twelve before it's like. Did he know this classic character. The didn't get enough respect. We're going to give him the respect. 'cause alma didn't get enough respect agreed and i think a lot of it had to do with the fact that linda cardellini was velma in the early two thousand most so true. Yeah that's probably huge factor. True your back up man. What do i pick. What do i pick. Let's see i'm looking. I'm looking at different You know i'm gonna go. I'm gonna go with the yellow chevrolet silverado. Fleet side used in. Kill bill with the weltman wagon the wagon that she drives. Because i think that's a cool looking vehicle. I don't know if i if i drive around with the complete decals on the back but i thought in the context of the movie and just the bright yellow color with the pink wetering on that and her getting it and ripping out of the parking garage and In that movie. I thought it was. I think it was killed. Bill to but i thought that was bringing me i. I just imagined like tinted windows in the car. The the pussy wagon shows up you. Roll down the windows in your head pops out on what i would do. It's been it's been in music video sense. Like i wonder what back lot they keep it on because i think it was in the lady gaga and beyond say telephone music video. A wasn't yeah. I mean he trucked as a spoiler on the back of it. I'm a fan of his. Why not yeah. Live a little truck. Gotta keep that truck stabilized. When i'm sitting in need better aerodynamics on the stroke it's almost there i'm gonna go with the generally another another dodge charger. Dukes hazard problematic are many would say but iconic nonetheless dichotomy jumping fucking canyons but i mean dukes of hazzard though i specifically mean yes jessica. Simpson one two thousand five movie. The walker one. Yeah yeah that's that's the that's the one. Everyone always remembers so the boss hog right was the bad guy that favorite. I want that to you my name. One day boss talk. How'd you get that nickname. Well i really liked it from the old. Tv show awesome leisure suit. Larry gloss moscow anywhere like an old boy like troubadour. Whatever shirt like get fucking way cowboy hat back to backpacks gandak okay. I'm gonna go with. Let's do i okay. So this is like there's three battling with right now. What is the interceptor from the original. Mad max do think that is legitimate. Drive made badges now. I'm very very close to that. One i also really love bandaged. Transam from Smoking bandit that's up. There i also like the tumbler from dark nine and we were just clowning on it. But i do think it is extremely cool car that would bill back a little bit audience. Vote here. it's going. You know what i'll stick with the interceptor a intercepted with the first one. Because i do love that one and again original mad max not the new one The mel gibson drives such an cool car Next up this last pick is the time to get a little crazy. I think we'll go a little crazy. I'm gonna go with banda transam. I'm going to go with the mini coopers. From the job i actually. I was shocked that you didn't pick those earlier. I love. they're so fucking cool. Nothing maybe wanna buy mini cooper ever in the entirety of my life before or since then watching the township watching mark wahlberg bookings zoom through the tiny little car filled to the brim with stolen gold. I love love the coopers in that would still. I've never driven one. Love dr a cooper one day yeah. I was surprised that you hadn't picked that earlier. Because i know you fucking love that from yeah good pick and any multiple cars all different colors my last one. Tv again watch out for hop on stare car for development will which you you talk about a joke in itself but also just gate great Characterization the choice of vehicle for the show right there. Another down bad guy. Y'all say also. I almost picked another comedy. When i won't go station wagon from family vacation. That was where i it. Biggest toss up tro last. Pick for you. I'm gonna go with. It wasn't long but i've always loved it It was it was was the mr plow truck that homer used in the episode where he's the plow or mr plow. Just i just love that truck always have. I don't have the reference about now. Look it's it's a really really needs pick mean there's a lot of like picks in the simpsons. Cars home. obviously has his paint car than march. Has the the yellow orange station wagon. But the mr plow truck our saw that i'm like that is so quickly single single row truck with the plow in front with the implied. Casey lights up a atop. The car was selected. I love those lights up about them. Big fan allred to. How does the audience around it out. Okay the audience. They have a lot left. But i'm going to go in the order. In which that i gave it to him because did very specific put in the order in which you would take them And he picked the one that you just referenced. Drafi speaking The teeth nineteen seventy ford ltd country. Yeah country squire station wagon from nagy fucking icon across all the movies part of so many funny moments. Yeah remember blue milk. When he joined they stood driving by during the death star attack ramos. Roll them up great big and they have a good draft. Is i think. Jimmy has a very good chance in this draft. They do have solid so that was one of the better audience. Argued had yet Shout to that that underscore a why now all right. That's it fast and furious nine. Go see and go fuck it. I don't care if you like it or not go to the movies. Support the theaters Because it is worth it's worth worth seeing in the whether you like it or not. It's just cooled back at an event movie and you know there might be people in. There might not be like one of the good things about going to the theaters right now. If you're doing so is not filled up the same way they used to be so you do get space like device remember when we started doing the podcast and i used to go see the movie at like eight. Am before i had a kid you have. Yeah oh my god. I miss doing that so much. Like nobody was there i would just. I would get the primoz spot moore. I fell asleep during love dogs.

The Problem With Zelda: Skyward Sword's New Amiibo - NVC 561

"The episode of nbc is sponsored by indeed and welcome to nintendo voice. Chat nintendo podcast. This week we will be talking about. Margo super rush overview trailer all of the characters they announce all the different modes. And there's just a lot to dissect in there and we'll also be talking about the really cute but also questionable skyward sword amoeba. That seems to lock a gameplay mechanic behind its purchase and a lot more especially some topics at tom might be a very passionate about. I don't know what that is. But we'll get to would soon. But i'm your host casey fritos and this week. I enjoined by brian auto. It's good to see you all again in a minute. Yeah man and cat bailey. A wildcat appears command and tom marks. So glad y'all could make it brian. I know it's been way too long cat. I know that you appeared. Well set was guest hosting a little while back. But i'm happy to have you back into finally be on a podcast with you. Let's start off with the mario. Gov super wash overview trailer. There is so much information and so much more information that came out even beyond this over you trailer but it looks so much fun. These new editions look great. So just very quick overview there are the basic multiplayer mode that will expected and love with four player multiplayer local and online play. There's also eat golf. Which i'll get into in a second. There's also bateaux golf. Which is kind of like speed golf but with a some special rules and then there's golf adventure which is a golf. Rpg with your me that you can. Then get points to put into stats. It all looks great. It looks awesome. tom ryan. I know you're looking at this for the first time. So let me explain this to you. Hopefully do as good of a job as the trailer did but speed golf is a frantic mode. Lets you end up to three t off at once and then race to your balls after you hit them and speed is the name of the game and your goal is to be the first to get your all in the hole so everyone goes at the same time. It is a frantic free for all where you're just trying to get your ball in the hole bassey than anyone else now. What is golf. Can you go back a little bit. No i'm actually looking at this for the first time when the trailer hit a i was a little preoccupied with other stuff. But i'm looking at now and i'm very into this. Game looks gorgeous. I noticed some stuff. Other people were kind of taking part. In the way the the layout of the courses they're all sort of interconnected which is really smart it. It gave me sort of a kind of like a wuhu island vibe. Or there's this natural kind of overview setting here the compartmentalize is all the or within which is really cool. And i imagine that's also part of almost necessity for speed gulf too right because since everyone is just going at the same time potentially could have you just do multiple holes in a row without stopping. We don't know if that's the case yet but like that that. That's i agree. I think it's really cool. Cool world to build out action gulf. Nintendo i love it. Yeah and really cool. It looks really really cool. Ran on Bouncers fieri costume a lot of the carriers have really interesting funny costumes. Equalities pinstripe suit and reo totally. I wake the addition of kingdom but also like where the heck did charge and chuck come from. Why the i. I don't know whether i hate or entirely respect. Intendo for foot putting a football player in the gulf salinas. Just the audacity of it is amazing to me and i i saw it. I know like data dome character. And then i thought about it for a half second more and i was like okay. This is kind of like he literally has to be an injury. Cried out there. Like what about charging chuck literally has never really explained why he was in super mario well to begin with. There's not right you know. He also doesn't he also throw baseballs in that game. Why in this game. Oh my gosh she does. He says no. This game has a move where he hits the ball up with his club catches it and throws at the whole as his power shot to be illegal. I don. that's what i said. He's just a sports guy he's just. I'm going to be playing charging chuck. Because i am all in favor of nintendo's deep cuts whenever they do these sports games i'm always going to pick the most obscure character possible. I appreciate oreos dressed. Like he's like a corrupt in like seventies college movie. It's very weird. I don't know about his out. i'm into it though. Yeah i also just wanted to quickly mentioned battle. Golf is like speed golf but there are nine holes on one single course players tapping the first to claim three hole. So it's just a complete gulf free for all. I get three holes winds. I wonder i that sounds like a lot of fun. Who was even more than four players as well. I wonder if they would ever do that. More than four but also really intrigued by golf adventure. So it's not just like it's not just like a golf tournament is you're in town and you're being tasked to do different activities that have to do with golf like do you think you can get this ball into this big pot like just random stuff like that. So you're talking to a super mario characters who are asking you to do things for them. It just looks really cute. Cool like i don't know. I didn't expect to be as interested in this. Game is a date. And mario golf a before like there's only so much entertainment. I can get out of playing golf with friends but there seems to be so much more to this game than just doing the same like golf tournament. Repeatedly what was kupa with the like the djeddai. Robak there of some questions found. He has questions for you too. Yeah this is always the question to me with nintendo. With mario sports games is like how for lack of a better term. How hammer they going right like if they can either will oftentimes be like play it safe and discarded be fun but forgettable or vacant go all out and this one feels like it's going all out and is doing a lot more than i would necessarily expect from it which is exciting. The last mario sports game was a little bit. Underwhelming asked mario tennis. Aces got a seventy five on metacritic. And i sort of felt like i'm hopeful that mario gulf is going to be a bit better. Not the least. Because mario golf is one of the most venerable nintendo sports games out. There goes all the way back to. At least the gameboy possibly further so and it has kind of a rich history crossing antenna sixty four and whatnot. So i think that maybe out of all of the mario sports games mario gulf might actually be the best one. So and gulf is clearly flexible. Game there's a game for the second genesis called. I think battle golfer which is about you fighting enemies super villains through gulf which is great so more of that please also had. Do you think this'll be. It'll probably be totally different. But i'm just making the very base highly very base level comparison to golf story. Did you guys ever play golf. Because you i does the. Rpg modem is look at any way similar to that somewhat. but we'll have to see right because the thing with gulf story was that it was like a very linear story right that you then did. Side quests stuff outside around so like we'll have to see how much this actually has like a story or is more like just walk around the town. And do quests sort of things and i can't tell entirely from the i also wanted to bring up that the me that you raise e stats with your playing golf. Rpg you can bring that me over to all of the other types of games you can allocate your points between power stamina's eased control and spend to improve it however you want and then take it to another place and i wonder if there's going to be like some sort of like mario golf meta where there's one me to beat them all like if you want win wind speed mario etc. I'm sure eventually have arguments. Over mario gulf meta it'd be great it'll be every bit as great as a super smash brothers meta. Is there something wrong with me that my brain immediately goes like this is going to be a meta for every single game that i look at other matt. O'brien it's okay. it's a- video. Game thing is going to happen. It's fine also also we can just have fun with it. It's fine you don't need to play your favorite character nets all the matters. I just recently started doing that with smash where. I'm not picking the best character every time i'm just like i'm just going to have fun and use a different character and it's okay if i don't win every time. It's not only is not a fox. Final destination player anymore. I'm not. I used to be peak achieve finalists nation player. Only that was it now. I've i've strayed away and played different characters. Now it's fun. You should really proud of you. I appreciate it. I'm proud of myself. Playing differ take concrete steps forward. And that's what's important help you ever here. But i also wanted to mention the full roster a little bit more there are sixteen characters already mentioned charging chuck and king bomb. But they're a bunch of other characters that you expect to be a sort of games like or you while we g yoshi daisy pauline is. This is the first in. Mario sports game for her. I believe so. That's cool and logan are a production assistant also wanted to point out that mario luigi or speed type characters in the game and usually in sports games are always the all around type characters. That's an interesting a step away from what they normally do. And i'm wondering if it's because nintendo knows at speed characters will have an advantage in the speed and battle moats. It's because nintendo wants you to actually pick. Mario kart mario. It's always the all rounders. Nobody ever actually picks him because he just doesn't have any advantage in that category. And maybe nintendo's going. Maybe we should give mario an advantage. Maybe maybe our mascot should actually be like. I don't know if i'm like weird or boring. Or both. But i usually pick mario in in games or have the option especially mario kart. I don't know why. I've i've i think i've been playing as mario for so long that if i switch to somebody else everything feels off to me. Yeah i'm boring. Oh to tell you others so you know. That's that's interesting. that's cool interesting. Pick i i don't know i never pick mario. I always use. I always pick yoshi. And in mario kart Towed light and i use the bulla billecart in double dash originally each kupa trooper to kupa. I'm a big fan of coupon to. I usually go for like the the booze or the koukoulas or towed. Those are usually my fix. I'm disappointed dry. Bones isn't in here. i like driving. Yeah just a skeleton. Kupa a spooky. I like him over to king bottom instead because he spawns bombs and landing landing zones by the way they all have different powers. That can do stuff. So that might be impactful decision on you as well as to who you're going to pick but i think that's about it for the super Mario gov i wanted to say super. Mario golf super rush. That's not no. Mario gov super rush overview trailer. I'm sure we're getting more information about this. Soon comes out in late. June very soon in a little over a month. I believe less once.

I wanted to move on to some other news. That at first i was like oh cool and then i was like wait. And this is the announcement of skyward sword amoeba so delusions schizoid. Me was going to be zelda and a loft wing. It is very cute. It looks nice. It is very expensive at twenty five dollars. I guess that is to be expected with a amenable. That is big. And i guess it is technically two figures one right like you're getting a zelda and wing and it's not i guess it's not big big but there's a lot of right right it's because the basis this is the regular sizes as your average amoeba right. Yeah yeah but it's all right. It's expensive. It's gonna come out the same day as Soared on july sixteenth. However it includes a game mechanic that is not going to be included in the base. Game without this amoeba. And you can use it to return to the sky. I feel like without context. This isn't gonna make any sense. So if you haven't played skyward sword. The game is kind of separated into two different places. The sky and the surface and the surface is a bunch of different locations. It's where your dungeons are where you're doing. You're exploring and the skies were. The town is where you go on your left wing. Which is that giant. What what are they called shoe bills giant shoe bills. Why around and you have two different beams of light in the sky to then go down to the surface in certain places so in the original game the only way to go back to the sky was to go and find these urged statues and then you can go back to the sky and then you find one of those beans of light that would then send you back down to a different statue if you so choose this. Amigo allows you to fast travel to the sky whenever you want even dungeon and it allows you to return immediately to the point or you just teleported from even with an dungeon so it's a really cool quality of life fast travel addition you will not be able to use this new fast travel game mechanic unless you have locking up. Hey that's pretty rough by nintendo. And i think that nintendo's deservedly getting pushback for effectively locking a key quality of life improvement behind what amounts to physical deal. Dlc and twenty five dollars is an incredibly steep price for it. I mean in the past. They've had bonus content behind their amoeba for example. They had a twilight princess midnight. The wolf link which unlocked a special features. And i am a little like okay. Maybe that's like physical but this is a key quality of life improvement to something that was actually kind of annoying and scoured sword. So i'm surprised. That nintendo made that decision. Yeah yeah i. I feel like the if the ideology behind me. Bow to begin with own like. Here's a really cool figuring that also creates an added value to your video games by unlocking something or having some sort of mechanics. Something interesting to it. That made it more than just a figuring right But i feel like they've the you know there's the cart before the horse type of thing that's happened here or like chicken and egg scenario where now instead of just getting a cool figuring they feel like to justify it they have to put a feature on it And it's they're holding back that feature from people who don't have the item and that's kind of a bummer. Because i would love to just you know. Be able to say that nintendo's making cool merchandise like i feel like we're you know years and years into the amoeba game now. I don't really necessarily feel like they have to do suffolk this. This is this once went from being like this massive market for them to being something that i think like hardcore collectors. Are swooping up individual amoeba at this point. I don't think a only a small group of people are still collecting every single. One people like hair like harrogate. Every amigo totally understandable. I get it. Are collectors out there. That love them all as you can see. Have a bunch of junk behind me. I love collecting stuff but to me like the value proposition of this thing doesn't really add up. This is a beautiful figure. it's It's really well done. But for twenty five dollars if you look at like what you get for other toy markets like that can get you a you know a star wars black series figure for twenty bucks with winsome articulation accessories. You know Soft goods all this cool stuff. Hasbro makes marvel legends. If you wanna get like a a thanos or something like that you can get a figure in that. Scale like is fully articulate six inch scale figurines and. This is a amoeba. That's like three inches tall. It's a fraction of the size doesn't have any articulation. It's gorgeous but for twenty five dollars. We're looking at twice. The price of amoeba launched at just a few years back and so adding that plus pay walling this feature. That should accessible to everybody. Because you know when when wind waker launched like olives was abound in that on the we version attack. And i would like to see that stuff here in the base game too so i. I don't know how they fix that. I really do. I really wish they would just make that feature accessible for everybody. Yeah yeah brian. And that's not even taking into account the fact that there might be shortages with this will be will not be able to get hold of the monster hunter. Emmy bo weren't even that they didn't even introduce that integral features like they offer layered armor which was cool. But it's not going to change the way you play the game and those were incredibly hard to get yeah. I think there's a couple of things that are important to point out. Which is this. Isn't the first time like brian saying this isn't the first time nintendo has sold through me like this. It isn't the first time and also like you said this is a really pretty figure a like the all of these things can be true and also this still be really really frustrating. Because like i think what it comes down to is what what cat was saying. Also of like it's different and also what case you just said it's different than just like a cosmetic where this is a complaint that people had with the game then this like this is a thing that it would be like if wind waker if that faster sale was locked behind an amoeba where you'd just be like why flare. Actually i think that this is worse than that if they had locked that sale behind me honestly like in terms of how good this quality of life feature is the thing that frustrates me about. It is catch totally right. There's going to be like no one's going to be able to buy this thing because it's going to sell out but even if this wasn't tied to a physical thing even if this was i've dollar. Dlc for this feature that you could just download digitally. I'd be furious about this because it's just it's this is like a basic quality of life feature while you're already adding basic quality of life features to this game. So why are you cutting this one out to sell it like i. Just don't get the logic behind that at all. And i think that very clearly nintendo just like like you were saying. Brian is looking to add value. These things and in this case overstepped at. Tom and i think that well a couple points. I this is my conspiracy theory hat. I think that nintendo is looking at the potential sales of skyward sword. Hd going we really need to get as much money out of this as humanly possible and so they made this decision to try and quote unquote add value to the amoeba so that they can potentially get more revenue off the screen that let's be totally honest sort isn't the most popular zelda and isn't generating a huge amount of excitement. Maybe i'm sure the skyward sword sands are going to come in and yell at me a whole bunch for saying the saying. But that's just my personal opinion is second thing is our apologised and i don't think you're wrong and the second thing is we decided collectively a while ago that we can kinda deal with. Dlc and pay features if it's cosmetic but when you start putting gameplay features behind a paywall that becomes a big problem and the connection that i would draws actually to win was putting a character progression behind luke boxes and that kind of thing and frankly if this were ea ea were releasing a little figure that had a key quality of life improvement to say one of their stores games. They would be just freakiness excoriated they would be. This would be a major blow up for a solid week. So nintendo in its own weird way. It's getting a little bit of a pass for what i think is actually kind of unacceptable. Yeah i completely agree there. I was gonna say to skyward. Sorta hd of it is is a portable game. I mean it's it's it's a switch game right but this is a game that you theoretically should be able to bring everywhere so also having this Feature locked behind a piece of plastic. I don't know if that's something you're going to have to repeatedly scan or bring with you everywhere didn't even think about that because you replied just scan it every time you go back so as not not even think about that. Yeah and to me. It's like it's also if you think about you know i brought up weaker. Hd when it came to we you there was like a special collector's edition version of it. Where you could get like again in figure. That wasn't an amoeba because amoeba wasn't really a thing back then Or at least. I don't believe it was And so they are capable of making just figures they can just make a statue or a toy and i wish they had done that here because instead you have the thing that has to be amigo and so it has to have this functionality. It's also you look at the value proposition of when his game. Originally launched scoured sword bundled with a we motion plus controller and soundtrack cd. And now there's a special edition controller sold separately. There's no soundtrack city 'cause nobody has cd players anymore. And there's an amoeba that you have to buy separately if you can even find it and so like i feel like an and keep in mind. The game is sixty bucks and so you not only did they. They've updated it a little bit. You know there's some new tweaks there's some new control options has hd next to the name now. So i imagine it's a look better but it does seem like a lot of the physical goods that were packaged. Originally with this with this game are now stripped away and being kind mind out for hearts. And i'm not super crazy about that. Yeah man. i'm sorry. I'm just looking at this now. That limited edition gold controller bundle for skyward sword was seventy dollars. Right which means you've got crazy a soundtrack cd and the full game for ten dollars. More than you're getting just the game right now. Your into notes. It can get away with it too. Because as a hyper engaged in ravenous fan base and they're setting themselves up as kind of this premium hobbyists thing which isn't actually a terrible move on the front like i don't mind paying extra for nintendo junk honestly but i mean because i'm no fan this amoeba which is like the most australian part of. It's a beautiful amigo. It really is link's awakening amoeba was one of my favorite things. They've ever done this. One of my favorite games ever made. I could not i casey. I helped you with the guide for that game. I literally don't remember what that amoeba does. Because it's it's really looks cute. That's what it does. That's why i don't really remember what they do. I mean except the toilet. Princess wolf amoeba like that was a cool little feature. But it wasn't like game-breaking are necessary a lot of them are just like even the multi layered armor or allowing you to get like free items every day. I think most people. That's what they do. They get you like some free junk everyday in game which is nice but not a huge bonus or anything like they could have done so many other. Cool things with this amoeba. That did not completely change the way you could play this game like they could have made it like scan bebo and it'll change the color of your a giant bill often. It's like i would. I would have bought it. Just were that's like i want different colored lav wings. I buy this for that. But in it's and it's worth pointing out and i'm not encouraging this but there is an entire market of people who do make amoeba cards. That have all the functionality of the figures but cost you know so i'm just saying that's yeah hair and our portables. That's how i got an animal crossing great. Yeah that's the thing. The thing i keep coming back to your like the comparison and keep coming back to in my head is like assassins creed that a lot of crap for selling like those progress boosts or whatever they were calling them in those games and like. I never really had a problem with those because it was just sort of like. It's a single player game if you wanna buy experience points or items like you know that's your money. I'm not gonna tell you how to spend your money in you do you want. But if assassin's creed had an item that was only like was like an integral gameplay feature or like a like a fast travel thing that was only available through dlc. Suddenly i'd be like a weight. That's weird like that's that's an odd thing to to package. And that's exactly what nintendo's doing except they're also locking up behind like we were saying the scarce plastic object yet. No i wanna both of you nailed it to to break down. If ea or did this it would be held a pay right now. Like people would be screaming about it but when the beloved two hundred toy company does it. It's like oh it's race of the bird. I want to send this back in time to two thousand seven two thousand six when we were all complaining about five dollar horse armor live in and just be like well look what happened. Yeah yeah it is evolved into two way way worse than that. She's we guess. We try to make staff. Just i i guess. General consensus is that this is not okay nintendo. We're not happy with it but also we know so many people are just going to buy it it. It's going to it's not. There's no reason for them to change. Yeah there's no reason for them to fix this if it weren't so pretty man. It is such a pretty amoeba to if it weren't so pretty wouldn't be so painful. I'm sure nintendo's calculus is the amount of money that they're gonna make off. This is totally worth the one day news cycle where people are mad about it. Yeah yeah probably. I mean in less. Don't know what if when people review this and they don't have this quality of life feature. They're to think about only. I had the fast travel built into the game. I would have scored the game so much more because it would have been so much better. Now they don't have that scarlet. Sword has its own issues specifically when casings. Gonna fix that. Yeah i know. I was just being cheeky. It's fine. I don't know maybe some people really hated it. I know The original system made it especially annoying if you're trying to one hundred percent the game and had to like backtrack to places. It's kind of a lot of backtracking and skyward sword already. So yeah anyway. Yeah yeah no. I was interested in giving this game another chance. Because i like many of you when it came out like i liked it but i didn't like it was definitely not my favorite three all the But this is like stuff like this is not. It's not helping you know. Like i'm hoping is that. We don't really know how many sort of quality of life features are happening behind the scenes. This time around. I hope this isn't the only big one and it's it's stuck to a bird. I guess we'll find out. General consensus the skyward sword. Emilio locking a fast travel. Quality of life. game mechanic. Kind is not okay by us. Don't know how you can fix it. Please please fix it. I know complaining without offering. Solutions is not in good taste. But we don't we don't work there so that's not a problem to figure out a solution. Please please find one. The solution is everyone gets fast. Travel there there. You go you travel and you get past travel. Thank you intendo. I in advanced for the solution that we have just suggested to you. There is more news besides the zelda amoeba about end. The mario off super rush trailer and this. I assume tom might be a little bit sad. Abou the headline is don't expect hollow nights silk song at e three team cherry has no announcer blogs planned. And according on dischord pointed out in the hall of knights sub reddit and a six was last seen in either twenty nineteen going on tom. I am numb. So this is this is not this disappointing. It's just when you hear this isn't gonna be at three is not entirely unexpected. And it's not like a devastating blow to me because the way team cherry operates. We've always known this about this development team. Is they like to keep their heads down until they have something to actually talk about show. It's a small team right like the team that it all the art encoding i believe for the first game was to people and like since then. They've hired a third right. It is not this is. They're really small team. They work very intimately on their stuff and they make sure that when they're ready the show it when they're ready It's a little bit funny that we haven't seen anything yet because they had like. I played the demo at eighty. Three two thousand nineteen right and like it was in a really good state and obviously demos. Are these polished vertical slices that are not entirely representative of where the whole game is at by any means but like it was so like tangible then that i would have thought we would have had it by now but i'm also absolutely not in any rush because i know that the more time that this team takes to make exactly what they wanna make the better. It is going to be for silk song. So they can. They can take your. I'm really hungry for new info. But they can take literally all the time they want in the world to make this game kind of appreciate. The recent trend of reverse c. Three announcements were where we're not gonna beatty three like. That's i feels like something attended a couple years ago to where they were just like. This won't be there. This won't be there. This won't be there and you're like okay. that's i have. I can kind of level my expectations a little bit now. I appreciate that yeah. It's and to be fair to to to their credit. They have been doing teases and things little in community engagement stuff with their discord in their read. It so it's not like they've like completely fallen off the map right like i'm not. I'm at all worried that this game is like in development. Hell or anything. I think they're just taking their time. Yeah and as usual. The pandemic messes with everything. I don't know what their work from home. Status is and everything. But i everybody everybody is being delayed right now so. I'm not surprised that night is taking more time and frankly they could put out a reveal trailer like a week before it comes out. Everybody would be super hyped and be ready to go so they don't necessarily have to show anything before they're ready. I think those are very level headed well-thought-out responses and i think that's that's all we can say about it that's show watching this trailer again is like physically causing me pain. Because i'm like. It's so pretty. I wanna play a nascar or just my god the animation on some of the larger enemies. I'm just like okay. I'm ready to go. Let's play some more hollow night. I'm in the middle of replaying holland for the for. I don't know time right now and it is really incredible to look at the visual changes that they've made in this game like compared to that side by side is like they've really done an amazing thing to kind of add richness adept add color in places that the original didn't quite have yet. The original was very blue and this one seems to be has many more colors. And i actually kind of appreciate that even down to hornet i. She's named hornet right with the with with a little bit of red as opposed to black. I think that helps a lot. It looks beautiful. It looks great. And i am so excited for both of you. Tom i was going to recommend that you start. Replaying it just like you know get used to it again before the hold you over but you already doing it so i don't know what else i would though. Yeah that's slightly disappointing. But like they said we'll see a whole night's soak song one team cherry is ready and then it'll be beautiful and wonderful and fantastic regardless but available not not right now but soon these games are going to come out on may twenty six. There are noon in which online games have been announced and this with this collection will surge the number of games one hundred men. That was a weird way to say that there will be more than one hundred classic games available to through antennas which online subscription which is a lot and the games coming on a twenty six include. A bunch of super nintendo games including super baseball simulator. One point one thousand one of those is also known as mac magical drop to spanky quests and on the espn ninja judge maroon. And i know that you were specifically excited about a few of these games. Yeah i'm really excited about magical drop to because one of the things that i really enjoyed about the super nintendo version in particular is that we've been getting a lot of random import hustle games like. We got pompeo. We got another game. I can never remember. Its name honestly. But i actually play those games a lot there really beautiful on the super nintendo. They easily easy to obtain back in the day. And i think that's just a huge value. Add traditionally magical drop to has been more of a neo geo puzzle or but it's also very good on the super nintendo never came out here. There was some discussion online Because apparently this was fan translated but this was not a fan translation. This is an official western release. So it's a little bit of a underrated ad. But i think it's great the rest of the games that are coming out Spanky spanky quest is interesting because it's from not to me i don't know a huge amount about it but it has a small fan base. And then joe mac. There's been like some groundswell for a reboot of it. I think that it's a bit of a sixteen bit artifact but And honestly. I thought it was already out but so goes out of these. Caveman game got added. But out of all of these magical drop to is definitely the one that i'm most excited about. But of course all the discourse on twitter as soon as this game all of these games announced wears earthbound and i didn't realize that earthbound on snaps online was such a conversation until it was actually literally trending on twitter. So i mean i would love to have it on the snacks online but i think it speaks to a kind of a deeper thing of people want games that they recognize and maybe not the extremely deep cuts that nintendo route routinely releases on nintendo switch. Online it's on it's on the classic right. It is yes. Yes so i think. That's that's probably where that conversation came from because it's like if it's there then why isn't it here Which i guess. I'm kind of sympathetic with. But you're i think you're totally right like this is for me. This has been an interesting for them to bring weirder deeper. Cut aims to the switch. That i probably wouldn't have ever thought Where whereas like the snes classic was here is the definitive legacy of the system or as close as we can get to approximate that you know with some help from some third parties but either way this feels more like it's hovering around where virtual console used to get close to which is bringing in a bunch of earth parties to do stuff that We probably forgot about you. Know that system that arrow had saw a lot more support and it's cool to see them slowly but surely reaching that again Although it's it's different this time you're not buying them piecemeal your they keep adding more value to this thing. So yeah i'd love her earthbound. You know it's i. I feel like no matter what they do. No matter what they add people are going to keep asking for so it can't wait until they add that. Yeah into it. Honestly go ahead. Tom earthbound was one that they also added to the we virtual console ray and when they added it to the virtual console. Everyone was like very excited that they did have that. So i think that it is also one of those ones that like. It's one of those instances with the virtual console being not existing anymore. Where we're like well we had it before. can we have. Can we have it again please. You know we played. People are missing that it's gone. I loved joan mac when i was a kid. I played a tonnage. Joan mac and then also i didn't know that i played spankings quest until i was watching this trailer again and i was like i remember that monkey bouncing balls fighting. An apple did that. Yeah and you go ahead cat when it comes to earthbound. It's always been kind of a weird situation for nintendo because Back on the back in the days of the we everybody was wanting it for virtual console and it just would not come out it would not come out not come out finally came out on the we you people were very happy eventually. Made it to the three d. s. in this classic but nintendo's always so weirdly cagey about mother and earthbound and those kinds of games and i don't know if it's a licensing thing or what but wait can i mean yeah. Are you just going to earth on. Wait it's out of focus. But it's eric promise earthbound on switch all very grow right evil an earthbound cartridge in physically put it on top of his nintendo. Switch for those of you. Who are listening because i see. It's so easy to just do. Oh my goodness. I just wanted to mention like i. I'm realizing now with all of these games coming out and everyone like oh. I plead that as a kid child. Me did not ask for enough things for more things. I had the lion king. And the super mario world and the mario collection that is literally all the games that i ever had. I never asked for anything else. I am disappointed in child me for not asking for more things like hey. Let's go to the game store. Get new games. No i was happy with playing the lion king. Twelve thousand times pointing to myself. Did you finish it. Because that's one of the most hundred message it did. Because i had no other games well done but i mean while i'm weird over here being like why don't they add bob or plock to. The nintendo online has also turned on twitter. Hot is that. Bob is one where you're in. You're like an a robot going through like a side scrolling platformer shooter that is one of my favorite classic probably not very good super nintendo games that i just remember from my childhood and then plaza game about a guy who his hands and legs are disconnected from his body and his underwear is stolen and so he asked to go on a journey across the world defined no his flag the flag in front of his house and the underwear is never mind and and it's a platform where you can throw your arms and legs and like then they can get taken from you and so like if you just missing your legs you just kind of like bouncing along as a body. It's a very weird game but it's actually really fun or i remember it being very fun. Not a body horror concept. Yeah he's a little cartoony dude. He's not like a human looking dude okay. I believe you to unpack tom. Yeah i guess my question is now that there are there will be more one hundred classic games on nintendo switch online classic games system. Are you taking advantage of everything that its offering. Oh heck yeah. I play my nintendo's. I play both and the ness app all the time Especially like super mario. All stars super ghouls and ghosts. Because i don't know like there will be times where i'll just feel like i need to chase her. And i'll hop into one of those things in play retro gain that i really enjoyed. Unfortunately i'm like one of two people. I know who actually do play those apps on a super regular basis this is strictly secondhand but my understanding is that not a lot of people actually play games on those which is really disappointing because it makes me worry at times that nintendo will just get bored and give up but what we're seeing. I think a fact that we see so many deep cuts and there's not a huge amount of effort to put a really big games out there. Like i'm sure a lot of people would be really thrilled to have for example square annex. Rpg's available snacks classic online but nintendo is probably going well. It's just not worth the expenditure of effort to get these games on here because nobody is playing these we'll just cater to the crazy hobbyists like cat. Who wants to play magical drop to. I wonder if it has to do with the way they are sort of compartmentalized within the app. Like i feel like on the virtual console you would look at a big logo on the homepage of your we or your we you and you or your you know your three d. s. and would go. Hey you know. Super mario world super bowls and ghost one of my favorite like also games of all time. i'm gonna play that whereas you see the super nintendo controller is in your like i'm not like seventy games in their. What's you open it up and it's like these huge tiles are all like in different shapes. And you're like oh there's new ones. Where do i start to solve for that. I like outside of folders or something. But you don't actually you know you're it would be where to put these games in folders. Because they're all contained within one app. I feel like a lot of games that have sort of like a collection aspect to them suffer from the same issue. I was going to mention very similar thing. Brian i desperately want to be able to customize my home screen for my switch. Because i'm one of those people i don't see it. I kind of forget that it exists. Yeah and that's the case with like everything like literally everything. If i put a pair of pants like somewhere that i just don't get all the time i'm going to forget that. I own a pair of pants and i will buy another one down the line. That's almost exactly the same. Like i need to be able to see things to remember that they are there and that is the same thing or games unless it's something that's always on the top of my mind and there's not a whole lot of space for things always on the top of my mind so i need your canned goods are at the back of your pantry. There's like weird stuff at the back of your fridge and like when you go to make lunch today. You're not going to be like let's check. What's at the very back of my fridge like the deep the bottom drawer or the freezer. That's i feel like lot of switch games. Go there because you know by nature of whatever you're playing is fresh and new the squares push the old squares down until they're off the front page and then there are dead forever. And i just don't i just don't remember them. Start my and it's weird because the demos that you've downloadable push those off as well and the demos will take a square. And i i don't know i think if i was able to customize my screen and then have those to the s and the snes apps always in the forefront. I would check them way. More often than i do now because right now i have to go look for them and i don't know i guess i'm really lazy and i don't wanna look for them and the huge lists. I have going on my games. But i'd love at the very least you could keep them as like the little circles on the bottom and get rid of ads just like an online button there or like a a news button. Like i don't need those things. Necessarily i personally would rather customize that and pop in and he s and s logos down there and be like oh and they blink when there's new games they're resolving everything today. That is the perfect solution. That is what i want. I would use those apps way more often if i had a visual reminder every time i turned on my sleep like hey use this thing. I think there would be really helpful if you could have a direct shortcut to a game that you want on your actual lineup of games. So instead of having to click into the super nintendo app. I can for example. Put super metro-wide just right there on the screen right next to breath in the wild so it doesn't feel as compartmentalized and i think that would help visibility. Issue a lot because i agree. It is a real outta sight outta mind issue I use my snap all the time. So it's like right there for me. But i know for a lot of people. That simply isn't the case. I know i'm going to get a lot of crap for this in the comments. So just forgive me it advance. It's just it's a me problem. I recognize that it is a problem that the sad thing is so such a problem with me so i understand that that is not your problem and you use it just fine so not a utah. It's i'm the weirdo. Who plays it like. Most people do not play this thing. And i did want to ask the audience like do you actually take full advantage of all of these games available to you. If you subscribe in tennessee which online please let us know in the comments below. I'm very interested to know how many people have discovered aim say would have never known existed and found new favorites. Is i think. That's this is a really great discovery tool for classic games. But i'm not using enough. And i should let. Let's move on to some games out this week. We yes. we're bringing this topic back or this week. Tom is on and he's very kind of fill some stuff out as well as cat and there are quite a few games. This week including snow runner com. If you will just like to take it over. Because he's decide the only thing i would have put on. Here's baldur's gate. So snow runner is is like the weirdest pitch for a game. That is actually very fun. It's a sequel. Spin tires mud runner. And it's literally just like a trucking kinda simulators sort of the right but also wrong word. It's incredibly physics based select all the mud and snow are like incredibly in depth and literally game about doing deliveries. But it's way more fun than that because you unlock new areas new maps new trucks as you go and it's this is really fun challenge of like driving from point a to point b but that being like really like a on sort of physics see terrain puzzle because if you get stuck in the snow or stuck in the mud than you might have to like attach a winch to treat to pull yourself out or like maybe you'll have to restart part of the run. It's just really really fun and this includes a lot of the dlc a game. I wanted to call out. Because it's one i didn't really expect to ever come to switch it is. It's a really pretty game. i haven't played it on. Switch myself digitally pretty game entirely physics heavy game so like it's just really. This is a very unique thing on the switch so any driving game kind of fans or like that sort of thing. I think she definitely take a look at it tom. Hanks movies sorcerer. Now it's like a belief seventies or eighties Sort of i action drama movie about a bunch of guys on a truck delivering a bunch of tnt. And they're driving through the jungle. Basically have to cross rope bridges and it's a believe kajima was inspired by for some of stranding. Just has a lot of that sort of build a bridge carry a bunch of junk over at. Hopefully you don't fall but yeah check it out. If you like a precarious trucks. Tragic over natural our source her. Which makes it sound like. It's a fantasy movie but it's very very not lies out this week is sunless skies sovereign edition on the nineteenth for twenty five dollars. I'm you described this as a top down adventure exploration game where you are the captain of space train spice strain yeah this is a sequel to sunless sea and it's basically just various sort of like dark story driven adventure game. That's all done from a top down perspective where you're like the captain of a space ship but the ship is a train and it's it's very various statically cool It's a really fun. It's like it actually more than sunless as well. Because i think they made some of the combat and that sort of thing a little more engaging and i also just love the idea that you are the captain of a space train. That is a hard thing to to pass for me okay. Space trying got you got me the next one honestly. I'm going to be playing this tonight. I am excited as baldur's gate dark alliance out on the twentieth for thirty dollars. You know when. I first read about this. I heard that there wasn't going to be coat couch. Coa but hearing that arizona couch co up. I guess i will find out specifically when i play it tonight. I'll come back next week to tell you about it. But this is a A rerelease of an older baldur's gate to like hack and slash type game with and it's a classic of action. Rpg's a lot of people love baldur's gate dark alliance and who knows if it does if it's successful enough dark alliance to might also get a release and this is also like this. Re-released came out of nowhere. But aren't they making a dark alliance new look a new dark alliance clean moody. Did yeah so. I think that must be why. It's like just sort of like came out all of a sudden a polar skates back in because skate. Three hundred development embarking on the summer of drifts from wizards of the coast. All the all the time and my mom like all of my main campaigns. I've ever played in lake baldur's gate was always been the main city we should. We should pay more attention to water next time. Let's but yeah excited for that. Also out this week is me topa out in the twenty first or fifty dollars. I'm sure everyone listening to this episode. Already knows how redfield about this Is there anyone on the on the panel. Today that disagrees with her the idea idea the game or the price. Oh no this is kind of boring. Rpg yeah it's it's a fairly generic pg ultimately which is kind of by design. The stars of the game are the me's that you're like creating kind of a weird throwback because as haven't been in style for nintendo for quite a long time so it's a very random re-release but i mean we kind of had a moment where it was going viral a little bit because people were making the they've really added to the character creators so people were really adding or creating some really fantastic characters. We did a little round up gallery over at and they add some extra things like there's a little bit of a persona element in the switch version of Topa where instead of building up relationships with other means in the end you can now go to like movie theaters and that kind of thing. So he's having dates. Maybe kissing that kind of thing. Oh hey and and also there's a horse horse that you can recruit so horse dating in horses that's all you need good sandra. It's a bit steep at fifty dollars. I don't really think that i'm going to pick it up. It's such a weird artifact that it's almost like why isn't antenna putting this out but now people are having fun with the demo. At least if you are interested there is that free demos so go check that out and if you really really love it like i don't know maybe it may be a shot. I would sailing. You could always way i sale but what are what are the chances. I think those are pretty slim but there are a couple of other games out this week. That are a little bit smaller but still worth mentioning including aerial nights never yield on the nineteenth for twelve dollars. How what is ariel nights. Never yield this is kind of like a bit trip runner style. Run jump dodge game where you're running to the right but it's from a really cool any developer who featured i think we featured him or featured this game two games com last year. Then i it just like is a really great style. It's got a great soundtrack. It's very cool looking one of those. I haven't had a chance to play it myself yet though and out. What about layers if you're out on the twentieth or thirty dollars. I don't likes spooky games. So this is what i have not played. This came out. And i believe twenty nineteen and is a pretty well liked scary horror adventure at game. I played this one. I liked it. I i love spooky so much into it. Hopefully the switch port runs while i haven't checked out and less list is rise of the slime actually heard people talking about this. Indeed nintendo voice chat podcast on facebook. Please join if you're interested saying that if you like My like this game. So i know literally nothing about it beyond that. It's been an early access on steam for a little while and just left early access which is why it's also hitting switch. It's like yeah. It's the slate spire comparisons really spot on not to sell them short or anything. It's just a very good kind of touch point for that. And the difference is it's got a little bit of side scrolling going on so it's not just like i don't mean to imply it's just a ripoff but it is a building dungeon crawling battle at card battler game sure. Your is a demo out on nintendo switch so go and check that out for sure and those are all the games. We thought were worth mentioning. That are out this week. Those games for snow runner. Some the skies sovereign edition elderski. Dark alliance me tovia. Errol nights never yield layers. If you're too and rise of the slime now let's move onto games that we have already been playing Cat let's start with you. Well i've been playing become detective club. I just started it up last night. And ultimately it's a fairly simple visual novel that hearkens back to the as of the s. The things so here are the things that i find really interesting about it. First of all. I love the animation. It is just gorgeous. It has a lot of character to it. I love how firmly set. It is in japan. And when i compare it to other visual novels it just really leaps out and just having the characters doing things and seeing the nicely. Lush watercolor animations in the background. It's just. It's really great. And i just want to just kind of settle in and play this wonderful little visual novel and it. It's a throwback to the days of the s in the sense that i remember reading import columns on like nintendo power and they would often highlight gains famicom detective closed because the idea of having a visual novel in the us was really foreign concept to a lot of americans. So i'm really happy that we've finally gotten to the point where games like famicom detective club can be remade and come out here in the us. And beyond that. i'm playing. I'm still playing monster hunter. Rise i m playing monster hunter rise forever but i finally just got to high rank seven. So in won't be long before. I am starting to get to the game which great because in about a week. I think they're going to formally reveal all of the endgame or master hundred rise and we can really start digging into that next rank. It's i i'm desperate to get to master mastery for heaven's sake and brian. What are you playing. I'm playing a game which called this. Sounds like a joke. It's there's a real title turnip boy commits tax evasion. Jerry i just out over the weekend actually isn't it. isn't it adorable It is Sort of like a bite sized sort of a little hackensack she kinda. Moore's l. the like it's it's got some sort of environmental puzzles. You go around this bizarre town and just kind of talk to weird strangers. Most of them are are variations of different talking vegetables. You get a obtuse weapons and do weird quests and fight offices like eggs and stuff like that. It's it's really really cute. I don't really know what to make of it. I don't know how this game came together. It has one of the most sort of bizarre titles. I've ever i like the. It's almost like they specifically like. How do we make this title confusing. It is about a turnip that commits a tax fraud and has to basically bring together solve a bunch of mysteries and do puzzles and i think continued to commit a tax evasion as he goes on. So yeah this is a fun little game you can probably finish it in a few hours. It's you're looking for sort of like a something kinda scratched that d. top-down zelda itch. This'll do it for you. Picks alerts fun I'm not crazy about the music. And i feel like yeah. I don't. I'm not. I'm not really some of it's really good. Some of it's very lo fi hip hop up a a little bizarre for me But yeah all in all like this. This is a very like awesome. Little surprise i was not expecting to like this game so much. So check it out. Yeah i agree. I talked about it a little bit last week. But i i really enjoyed it and i finished it. I actually went back and finish it usually a lot of times when i play a game just to check it out and see how it is. I don't finish games. But i went back and finished it all on my own time just like i had free time like you know what i'm gonna finish during a boy and i did and the second to last boss was actually really hard. But it and yeah. That's i don't know it was good. I recommend it. It was very funny. I laughed out. Why loud many many times right aren't even playing anything else now. Just a resident aid like the third or fourth. I'm of the world's and everything your time play if you have the options even playing. I've been shopping around a lot of non nintendo stuff. Obviously i said. I was playing hall night but i'm planning on. Ps five. just because it's a platform. I have not played on yet of which i am running out of those. So why not. I'm also playing through massive legendary edition which is also not unswayed. Jump personify royal which is also to everybody's chagrin not on switch and dipping into monitoring arise occasionally. But i kinda did all the stuff that came in the last update and like hit another wall and was like all right. I'll just i'll come back to. The next thing comes out at the end of this month but one thing i did want to kind of report on. Which isn't on switch yet is get suma. Dan came out on. He see in early access. Which is the new game that they i know. New nami game that They revealed in a that. Recent switch like showcase so they revealed this nintendo showcase. But it's out. I think they said it's going to be an early access for like a year. And it's like a it's a follow up to any s game it's like a successor sequel sort of blend of a thing and it's like a rogue light kind of dead cells style platformer combat game with just this huge art style. I haven't played a ton of it yet. I'm still early on a but it seems pretty cool so far like it. It's it's surpri. It's really really pretty. It's very challenging. The it feels pretty good to play. It seems like it's gotten a lot of really cool sort of aspects to it little ref around the edges especially in some of this sort of deterioration in some the menu stuff definitely has some rough edges here and there but it doesn't early access game a and i'm just sort of excited to see where this goes and i'm excited to see it eventually. Come to the switch. Because it's just like like it's it's really unexpected. I gas is the thing that i took away from it more than anything else. Yeah what an interesting deep cut from konami kinda love that. It's come around. And i was never expecting a game like this to come out but man. I'm watching the trailer right now and this game looks really really good. Is it every bit as good in action. When you're actually playing as it looks in the trailer it feels really the controls that like your actual controls fuel really really good like they actually does like the dodge feels nice. The judge the combat feels fine. The thing i didn't. I haven't played enough of it to get a sense of it. It does feel a little bit like the enemies are a hard to read and kind of have a lot of health. But that could just be me being early on right like i. I don't know enough to say yet. What if played so far feels challenging but pretty cool. I think the level design is also a little simple but again i'm only releasing the first world so like it's hard for me to really judge that at this point another cool thing that came out of this is if you buy it in early access and is not saying go and early access. This is just a cool thing is if you buy it. In relax on steam it automatically adds the original. Any s gets two year steam account as a separate application and i looked up and this is the first time that this game has ever been available outside of japan. So they've they've brought it the virtual console on we you and three d. s. but it was only available in japan because it's only ever been a famicom game and it's like even this version in the. Us in this release is is in japanese like it's not translated but this is the first time you've ever been able to like legally officially acquire this game outside of japan. The original famicom gets done. And it's like basically from the little bit. I played that did not play much. Because it's very let's be kind and say retro. It's basically just like a very japanese castle vania. it's like it's kind of neat but also very very old. I mean the incident task. Sorry we're gonna say between gets then famicom detective club and magical drop to. It's real. Japanese import week over here voice. Show yeah it is it is it was. I should have mentioned this before. But i did briefly mention. I also started fading detective club and one of the cool things the implemented in that is you could actually change the music back to the original arrangement so you can switch back and forth between the the remakes the new new arrangement and the original one. And it's just it's just really cool hearing the difference between the two and i'm glad that they include that and they did not do english voice actors but everything is voice activation japanese. I think it might be interesting if you're trying to learn japanese to play this game and try and use the translation and the tax wile while playing to kind of help bolster. Your language skills might be interesting. But i thought the writing was really interesting and it was kind of fun. It there's not a whole lot of like gamification in this in the sahel. To my in my opinion it's kind of a lot of just. It will go by a lot more smoothly if you put some thought into your options but if you just keep picking stuff at random you'll eventually be able to move on. The story is is really interesting. I've also been playing monster. Hunter is cat. And tom have said but i haven't finished the last updates. Content really need to do that before we get to the new content again. I just haven't had a lot i've been. I've still been working on. Pokemon snap boogie. There's just seems to be an endless amount of stuff. And i've been replaying the same missions the same the same courses over and over and over again in man. I'm really tired of trying to get po- quantity particular things by doing skill shots with things that are not meant to be skill shots. Like imagine. I don't know money playing call of duty and trying to get headshots with a ball. That is floaty. Also you're on object and also it changes into a curve ball or not a curveball at any moment but you can't control any of that you just kind of have to like hope. It goes where you wanted to go since really intense. I play a lot of. Mlb the show. And i do challenges or they'll be like hit three home runs in one game and i'll be like yeah. Good luck with that. So i kind of feel it. When you're like kind of struggling to hit those very specific requirements. That are not that easy to get. It's i'm not saying the hardest game of the world. Abe really. isn't that hard. It's just mildly annoying. When you're trying to do a specific thing get a specific shot or or wicky and then have to redo it a million times to get something good but anyway. Those are the games that we're playing we talked about. Having come to -tective club gets fudan hollow night. Mass effect sort of monster hunter rise and turn it boy mets accident really good good array of gains here. But let's move on to another game or nintendo voice chat called question block where we answer your questions. You being the audience back home right now. You can always write to us at nbc at dot com or answer our question bloat host on the of voice up podcast forums on facebook. This first question's from comes from a year moat wagner and they ask what is your favorite slash abandoned intend to hardware feature and what game used it. Best and they offer some different varieties like st pass or game boy advance game playing the super game boy frames etc. What is everyone's favorite old and abandoned intendo feature. I really miss them. Iverson the we you. It was a very cool. Little social platform people withdraw wonderful. Little pictures us on the message boards and everything and it was just opportunity for nintendo fans presser creativity and bums me out that nintendo switch as much as i love that that console. I really love my switch. It doesn't have the same social features so we use so. That has made me one way in which i think the way you have better the switch a little bit and in my heart i would love to be able to see goofy art on the verse community chat again. I really liked pretty much. All of the bells and whistles. The super game boy brought to the table. It was a really interesting way to play a game boy games but One of the cool things about it was you could customize the color scheme that you want it. For the also customize the border and frame around the games themselves and some games even had custom color palettes. They had custom frames like donkey kong. Ninety four just one of my favorite games time. and you know. They've ported gameboy games two platforms of the last few years Most recently the three d. s. was the last time that kim had pretty significant gameboy library and i bought most of them And there was really no way to like go in and customize colors. there were different button presses. i believe that you could do it at buddha. That would allow you a slightly different color schemes. But they were all kind of reset. I remember playing gameboy games and being able to pick out the four colors that you wanted for them and then switching between them whether if you're playing zelda you into a dungeon you can switch to like more kind of bluish brown colors but if you're outside you can switch to greens and stuff like that and i really liked that like it was a really cool feature but It's you know they've kind of abandoned it ever. Since street pass was great definitely. I liked straight pass. But i think as weird is this. Is my choices going to be the we. You gamepad well. Yeah why. Tom explain yourself. You want to play more than ten feet away from your tv. No no i think that the we gamepad opened the door for specifically nintendo land some of the best asymmetrical multi-player games ever created mario run and that luigi ghost hunting game just like some of the most fun. I've literally ever had with other people sitting around the tv. And the i'm i'm sad. That console didn't get more of a chance. Because i think it was the only gaming system that could end. The switch could do this with connecting and multiple switches. But the only kind of single gaming system that could allow experiences like that in a local setting where information was hidden from one player and not the others and Or kim from some players and not one And yeah i just regret that. That's my biggest my biggest disappointment with the we. You dying the way. It did not saying that it was this amazing system that should have lived forever anything but like it was in a position to do things that no other console could do or could how could you before or after and i'm sad about that because i think that nintendo land while it had some some mrs had some really really big hits too. I totally agree with you. And you're giving me so much nostalgia for animal crossing sweet days which my friends and i called q. Can run because you're always out the little fruits yeah what a wonderful game and to piggyback on that a little bit i really miss the second screen on the nintendo ds or kind of similar reads and say you were talking about. It's not the asymmetrical place so much as we're just losing game play opportunities one of my favorite games on the nintendo ds in three d. s. is actually an odyssey and one of the big questions that people are constantly asking is. What are we going to be able to get a tree and odyssey on the nintendo switch. Will that's really hard because we don't have a second screen. So as much as i love to switch for kind of losing those opportunities. I think i think some of this not for every game at some of this could be solved by kind of making you use another switch to play. I know that sounds horrible. And i think that's a better solution than not having the option at all but we know we could get into this conversation a whole lot more but unfortunately that is all the time we have left or nintendo voice chat this week if you are listening to us on your favourite cussing platform like spotify or apple. I implore you to go check us out on. I gene games youtube channel and see the video version and see all the cool gameplay and other things you couldn't otherwise see like us.

Ready for a round of 'Mario Golf?'

"Everyone likes to think they know about investing. But how much do you really know. Put your financial knowledge to the test at investor dot gov before you invest investor dot gov listeners. It's brett molina. And i'm mike schneider. Welcome back talking tech one of the reasons. The nintendo switch has been such. A big hit is the treasure trove. Video games exclusive to the platform featuring stars such as mario length yoshi and more the latest example released last month is a sports finley game. Mario golf super paresh. Yes and this is a. This is one of my favorite mario niches. 'cause they you know nintendo's dabbled in different sports stuff for a while between soccer and baseball and other stuff so but it was nice to see golf back so the video game features all characters from super mario universe hitting the greens for a round of golf still. See mario luigi yoshi. Bowser you name it. At first glance it feels like regular golf. You're picking your clubs. You're judging kind of the the pitch and you're you know you're figuring out wind direction and all that stuff but of course there's a fun nintendo twist to it There are different ways to play it their speed golf where you play rounds as quickly as possible and you'll use power ups either speed up or slow down your opponent as you're running between each hole so basically it's like your your own supercharge golf cart kind of thing Then there's battle golf which combines golf with kind of an obstacle course year having to you know not only worry about finishing the the round in with as few strokes as possible but you have to dodging all these obstacles then. Of course there's golf adventure where you create your own me. Which is an avatar that that a lot of nintendo owners are familiar with and you learn to become a pro golfer in the mushroom kingdom. So you'll start small and they'll just work your way up earning new clubs and just getting better and better at the game. I've just dabbled a little bit and again it looks cool. I mean i was excited about this game coming out and i think i have mentioned in a previous podcast that i went and got a nintendo switch because i because i just wanted to play this game. And obviously there's a lot of games coming out That made me wanna have one. And as we're focusing more on video tapes of meats. it was smart for me to have one It feels good when you play the game on my. I'm learning. I've got some birdies already. Got a couple of bogues I'm looking forward to seeing how simple it is for like my wife to play. Because she's like all. I think she'd probably enjoyed Taking me on now have not tried any special mode yet I don't know if you've tried. Battled golf for or Speed golf i mean. We had a team we had a tick tick each other online or something for that yellow to figure that out. I've dabbled with the golf adventure for a little bit. And i really like it. It's a lot of fun. It's really good to start out with too. Because it kind of doubles as a tutorial and shows you the basics of the game and there was stuff that i when i started playing in i just jumped into a game and wasn't sure exactly how everything worked but then when i played golf adventure after it started making sense because they pretty much breakdown like how everything works. And there's a meter that judges how hard you hit but then also it tells you you know which way the wind blows which way you're ball might curve if you hit it So there's a lot of little nuance there that i really found helpful playing golf adventure but i got a taste of the speed golf too which is a lot of fun. You basically have to finish a hole in his short amount of time as possible. Seal hit and then you have to sprint down to the next hole and there are these little. I think hearts that you pick up that allow you to like get a supercharge run but you also have special powers you can use. It will slow people down. Make them go fast. Make yourself go faster It's really cool. Like i said it's like they've taken elements of the mario games and elements of golf. And i think it goes together really well. Good tip on the on. The on the gulf adventure idea might be a might be smart for me to go down a bit kind of get my judges. Tim pride in. Because i played a lot of video game golf games. And you know even if i don't know how to curb it. Initially i know how to play wind. Lay the shot back or whatever. Change the aim. Everything but cool. Well i think we highly recommend this.

Episode 266 - E3 2021 Wrap Up and Reactions

"I need a weapon off. Going to bring welcome to the generation Xbox. This is episode number 266, your III wrap-up, show for the week. I'm real stylish joined as always by hidden Hancock. Steven see how you doing a bad? Not bad little tired back to work back in the summer the summer. Grind standing outside after not having worked outside for a year-and-a-half. Some change it's it's tiring. Definitely slept like a baby the last few nights cuz they're almost exhausted that's kind of sucked. But luckily Gap been there for me last today, while definitely more yesterday than Monday? Cuz oh my God. Monday was bad. And what was this was nothing but Tuesday, we had a Nintendo which was decent wage. Decent stuff shown there. There's that was exciting and talk a little bit about that yesterday. Advance wars being my cup of tea my mother than that. Like I started, you know. Usually at home or like video games on sounds super fun to me as much as crazy as it sounds because like all the new stuff is getting shown. And so none of, like, none of the old stuff is like, sounds fun, cuz like you that's old. I want the news stuff, right? I don't know if you guys ever get in that that mode. Like I have, yeah, I guess and but yesterday, I was like, sitting there trying to think what to do and so I load up the outer World cuz I, I never really gave that gave em Fair shake. And obviously, there was, we showed we saw the trailer at the Xbox show and it was obviously a very tongue-in-cheek, cinematic trailer, but it was funny and I like, all right, let's let's do this one more time and I play that your last night and I had a blast with it. Actually, I got out of the first area. I did it all yesterday. So I've gotten past everything. I had done before birth. Start a new character, but I actually really like the gun play in that game. And the, the different weapons are are fun so far. And I'd like the Dialogue. So I've been enjoying it, I'm excited to play some more of it today before some of the the big stuff starts coming out cuz we're, we're getting some releases like very soon which is actually next week. So, young children, he knows is, hey, now from like across the pond after midnight, welcome and how you doing. I'm good. I'm just trying to keep it quiet, cuz everyone's asleep. People have worked on or off, trying to, like, not drift into like, ASMR territory, trying to keep like relatively hushed but also like, okay, we'll understand, like just hit so handsome, a little module. That's not my style. Kind of like something. Oh yeah, you know, like doing that would put us in a whole different job that lets, you know, that's what I like. I love ASMR. And I like it when I go to sleep, I think it relaxes me. So I think that would knock me out if they took so long. As every was the last few days for anybody who's been under a rock and not paying attention. You been first, I'm good on Tyler. Yeah, I can't I don't even care cuz I just went right in that but no I've been good and yeah I agree has been the past few days. It's it. It's like the most fun we clear for me, in terms of getting to do this and I'm talking about it and all that stuff will talk about kind of how this III stacked up against mothers and in the past. But you know there's always moments of fun in this year certainly had those. But yeah it's nice and good and you know I've I've tempered that high for me three, what hi there was by watching like walking dead including like one of the most part in my opinion most like crushing episodes you'll see and you're never talked to me yesterday. Yeah it's a bit of a downer. You gonna make me laugh? Were you watching that show? And like, I'm getting Stephen. There was a moment where, like, when I saw what was happening. Like, literally, I was saying there was like my hand over my mouth, like that type of reaction. Oh my God, the latest Seasons get really good. Like, you know, take I think truth are like people judging harshly for having a few bad Seasons. I think once we got six of really well they were mostly pretty good job of a day but nine and ten my God it's the best of shows that have been like the news is going to end. Like make sure it is crushing because it's never been better. The the end of the line. I mean it's weird hidden cuz the season finale of mine is wholly different, right? Yeah, they kind of ship was the Game of Thrones think of having like a bigger butt, so choice in the penultimate and then slowing down, you know, but absolutely the penultimate is, is like crazy and insane, and just really sad and just, yeah, all of it, it's off. And it's good if you think by Stephen like the type of like shocked Moment, I Saw the same yesterday but like in season two, when at the mid-season finale, when the little girl comes out in the barn as a zombie. But after they've been looking for also using like that type of moment, we're so it's just like, oh my God, you know? Like that age group, shocked moment, and just really sad and powerful and same time. So yeah, it was it was good and I'm definitely getting old. In fact, I was so into it, I just went and bought season 10 Max watch to watch cuz I don't want to wait for the Netflix, really slow for probably like next week now. So anyway, three guys, that was this week and so, let's, let's jump in and basically, they'll bring what we're gonna do. We're not going to go like Blow by blow off. Preaching by briefing. If you want that, we have episodes that cover each of the big ones, and feel free to go revisit those and, you know, leave us your thoughts. Let us know of what you thought were the best shows and they're not the best and and why. But the one I do want to revisit a little bit as the Xbox one, we are an Xbox show. So and and because I thought they had, she had a very good showcase this year along with the fastest. So, guys, just look at that real quick. Just some quick hits are really good choice of my opinion to jump right into the Starfield. Especially cuz we didn't have a lot to show. It was more of a teacher, but they just jumped right in with that. Got everybody. Excited, we started a hybrid. The halo song, not overdone. I thought it would be wasn't, which was really good, and then we saw Forza Horizon 5. Which looks amazing and was recognized by 3 yesterday and off and then Red Rough. All right? And pull up and the very end is sort of a surprise coming. So I'm still questioning the tire that now, that we weren't sure what the desk phone numbers, right? And bottom, where like, what was the quote, again, read the full read. Where do like going to say Red Dawn because that's been a title for a lot of things. And yeah. So anyway, Guys, your thoughts on the Xbox overall? Stay closer with you. The I just, I thought they were very good. Pretty well. Paced trying to, we don't all agree on that but a lot of good stuff, soft. Yeah, I did think the show was very good in the more. I think about it. The more I like like the show and I actually thought the pacing was fine, it was actually perfect. It just was the different games like jumping off. A slow calm game immediately into like an action-based game like that felt a little jarring, but I don't think they should have changed anything. I I think the pacing was good and anyone that says, otherwise Hayden is a silly goose Steven. I probably played a little bit like a really good album the way. Really good albums constructed sometimes. Yeah. Back when people listen to albums and not you know song songs but I I feeling you know, we we well they started out with something. We kind of cool down and we went back up and it was more. It was a bit of a roller coaster but in a good way, it's not so long. Don't know. I just, I like the conference a lot of good stuff shown. And I think the best thing that people are ignoring is all the games, they show 2 - like to offer our for the next two years. So, like next week, three is going to be huge cuz we will see gameplay for stuff. Probably, like, Starfield gameplay, should see it sooner than that. But while also see stuff for 2023 and 2024, maybe that we didn't stuff, we might not have known about or might not know about and then, obviously stuff, hopefully on a job. Well, yeah, table. So I think it's going to say, yeah, go ahead, I'm sorry. My final thoughts is like, I think by some other stuff, they didn't show kind of makes this E350 look better in perspective, because, you know, they have a lot of stuff, they didn't show like about Fable, right? That is coming. They've already announced it before and they still had an amazing show. And I think that Joe Put it into perspective and shows how awesome this was. And I didn't even talk about for. So, which is was just an amazing looking game. Like, my goodness for a racing game, that just looks. Yeah, there were two moments during, yeah, where you just like, wow, they, they're showing us live shots of Mexico and then you see the forts cars come by? And you're like, oh, that's a game and it's it's insane. It's yep. Yep. So that's exactly what I was going to say before, by the way. Like what they didn't show was almost as important as what they did in terms of the quality here and how it sets them up for the future. So, next year, now, can be like, you said, Dive, Right? And then also gameplay, looks for things like a vowed things, like Fable things like Perfect Dark, right? And that's all going to seem new and exciting. And then next year, might be the year that we get some new users for things like your sex and some other games that are a little bit more down the pipeline. Maybe a little bit of a teaser again, for like Elder Scrolls 6, things like that in your thoughts overall on the Xbox show. Yeah. I mean, I'm Alex with you too. I like the pacing. I think Jack was poorly constructed. I think it was all over the place. They had. They felt like there was no plan or like. It just felt really just seemed like I was just going from It was just bizarre like in gained like Contraband teaser, so early on and then ending with like red Fort. I mean, I'm glad they ended with red fall, but it just felt bazaars and like the outworlds too is just kind of like, it's not buying. Like it was just weird. It wasn't that to me as a closer, right? I will to contraband that to me is a closer cuz they're so far away. I think, like, in terms of release dates, it was just all over the place and I couldn't keep up with good. Yeah, actually, we're going there. So with their strategy though, they're going to use as the closer the end the show with the thing that seems to be the biggest surprise in generate the most hype. All right, but in my eyes, the show was all about showing what's coming to game pass over the next six to twelve months, I don't keep track of like six months, right? So you think logically that go right? There's order but really stick. Let's take people through exactly what they were playing on when they were playing it and they didn't do that, they were like jumping all over the place and like hm. I think about having Battlefield and fog, right? And that was just a bit disjointed as well. And that was Maybe on that survey could have their own thing, like, you know, they play whatever. It's called, is not far away. I mean, it just at the battlefield coverage outside of that. I love the show. It was really good job because it was. So when you disagree with that idea, that it was just a game past showcase. I think this is just a little, just it was, this is what they came into the Showcase where they said, we want to release like games every quarter and like at the end of the show, case that point was this something new to play every month, I'm getting past data and we want you to be thinking of them right up front, we're going to show you 30 games on 27th, November Game Pass. So that did say that they did send those gravel spot and see when I throw back to you here in a sec. But I think that When it comes to pacing, I think they're going more with the magnitude of the game rather than any sort of timeline personally. And I think that they're going to get you wrapped up with like, a huge truck and they're going to bring you back down a little bit and throw a little things in so that everything seems different. If you go to matically through these things, things start to just kind of blend together off and go through a second. I definitely Series. Yeah, so the roller coaster have me confused. Yeah, no, I hear you, I hear you, I didn't turn off, but I I like the staircase regardless, they started. Yeah, so many cool games. And the fact that so many of them are coming to game pass at lunch is phenomenal, right? And some of those games, like even though a lot of the stuff we saw was in D You have to think of the weight of those in the games. Like I mean stuff like twelve minutes and replaced and then I've had these has already launched on like switch but like Hades coming to Game Pass day was this stuff like that? Is just I think mean mean you were told not to Tyler maybe like a day or two ago about like when you compare this to PlayStation, right and like some of the games put on a station, people have to pay like twenty thirty dollars for like each of these games and back for blood that's like a $60 purchase right there, really? When you look at comparing it to PlayStation, like a lot of the games, my employee platform took a difference between spending like $15 a month or upwards of a hundred like it's yeah, yeah. It's just phenomenal. The value, get so many games you're going to suck. Yeah. Once you're going to buy like one game per quarter, right? A AAA game so on PlayStation that now looks like almost $300 after taxes and off. Fox. Now looks like you know whatever the cost for getting passes for a year it's like basically half that or a little more than half that. So there's and plus you're going to be interested so many other games off. On the way, you don't have to choose the one per quarter to buy your, you just kind of get all of it and you can jump in and try new things. So, stay in the $9, I'm just gonna throw back to you. So, go back further. Thoughts on on the Showcase. Why are they getting my thoughts on it? I know it was disagreeing with something but Hayden. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I guess, yeah. I think what you guys said like about it being off like the absence of certain titles making this even stronger researcher as well. Because I think before I coming into this, I wanted to see X boxes were in Mount through 22, ideally twenty-three and woke up every piece of the puzzle yet, but I think we have a really good idea of it now, cuz twenty one is packed, right? Like twenty one is looking really good and if you think about twenty one, we've had some really great AAA said, yep. Cancel the game pass and before, I don't think I would have counted that, but I think now I do I see, I see that as a huge win for like X-Box owners. So like even like off. All right, that's almost up there with the first party stuff in my eyes like this year. I am going to play like a second was too long to potty, Microsoft Flight Sim back for blood, Forza Horizon, 5 Halo infinite and that's all it's like I did I say so I can also think I did. But that's all like on there you know? Like no extra cost and that's great then. Like next year looking ahead things like a plague tale right? Starfield red fall, stalker, tube, and twenty twenty-three. Like we said, we start to already see from the absence of stuff that they like the stuff they didn't mention, you can kind of get that roadmap like either twenty-three or twenty-four, you know, we're going to see. Like I said, he threw stable about potentially ever wild maybe birth. For, you know, and their romance re-sign to fill in now, where they're actually starting to feel like a console maker again, and it's been a while where I have yeah off. And first of all, like, when is Xbox ever been rewarded for what they didn't show? Right? When does that ever happened? And then sooner throw to you here to questions. So I just for you and then it's like one just kind of was a nice discussion piece, but like, is Game Pass becoming the best value in entertainment. And I used to consider the best choice, honestly to be the WWE Network because you can now get every paper. You pay per view for the year. $60 each for now, ten bucks a month, you're saying off so much money and you're not going to be nearly as disappointed when it's trashed like half more. So Is it now the best value in the second like outside of the big four games that we talked about What, which thing from Xbox stood out the most you'd impressed you the most. All right, so to answer your first question, I would say it's it's up there mostly because a lot of the like the streaming services for movies and TV. Now you need to have like all of them. So you need like eight different ones if you want to watch. Which I mean, I have all like ten of them but like, you know, get past this one thing. And there's so much variety on there. And there's like, six, almost feels like every game that I like, kind of want to play is is on Game Pass or has been at some point, you know? So I would say it's up there. It's hard to, you know, say it's the best value. For sure or best deal, I would say best value. Probably not going to be subjective, right? But yeah, so I would say that what was the second question again? What was my favorite? So outside of the big four off? For Halo Starfield and read fall. What? What was your favorite thing shown there? What kind of impression most that's tough? Cuz I read thought was what I was just cuz I didn't think that counted for the thing and this is me killing time as I'm trying to remember everything that was shown, let me, do you want me to answer first? I have mine so you can go first for me. It's just leaves expansion. And with the Pirates of the Caribbean content, I think that breeds an entirely new life into that game, not that it needed it. It's been consistently improving and finding new ways as players and that's all great. But I think this is the first real, life story, based type thing that they've had. And I think that's going to bring a lot of people back in, in a way that Maybe won't have some of the griefing that existed before for some people that turn them away and, you know, some of the repetitive nature of things or, at least if it is a little repetitive, there's at least going to be more of a point to it off. So, I don't know fast for me and I can't wait to play next week. So how about you Hayden will go using them. Back Steven, like, what outside of those big four wants to know to most? I think in these killed off in the Showcase, there was so many good Indie, like, well, cool looking any game show. I was a good yet, but it looked really promising. So, like ones. We already knew about a 12 minutes that we have release dates off and that's that's coming out really soon, right? And that's, I mean that looks phenomenal and stuff like Hades going to game person launch but I think this to the stood out to me I think replaced look really good as the combat exchange for a place like really vibrant and like frantic and fun and Somerville just that song I was a masterpiece red all over it. I think some of those going to be such a smash hit my lunches next year. I think it's going to do really, really well. I mean, we don't know gameplay, right? We got a pretty good look at what we can expect gameplay-wise off. But if the story, there's up to the tone saying that trailer, and it's kind of like the social have you in the, in the Heart the song it's going to I think that's going to really well. Still haven't decided yet. Yeah, I think games that's already came out. I don't feel like eighties fully counts because like I said, we played on the switch, but was exciting as we never seem to get these types of games on the Xbox. A always have to buy them on the switch or the PlayStation things like this. So, seeing it on a Xbox show and coming The Game Pass. And, you know, in two months, like is awesome. But for new games, I would say the, I hope I say this right, you didn't Chronicles rising and hundred range. I'd say those games because in hundred Heroes, I mean, just because they're jrpgs and coming to Game Pass. And obviously, I love jrpgs. I've never played any of the games in the series, so, hopefully, they're good job. I have to look up some stuff and, you know, some gameplay of the old, well, not gameplay Jo produced enderal play pretty similar, but like what the game looks like plays like a story wise. So I I would say that's probably one of my more exciting stuff but I did love almost everything, we're getting from Microsoft minus, the horror stuff Yeah so so all right. And I don't know what the general PG stuff's even I like for me as a player, not for me, but I heard almost like feel like the sensor that Microsoft had me able to show this stuff off finally. Yeah. And say like this is now part of our library, you know, part of our portfolio with both coming to gain power. Someone being twenty-two won't be in 2023. Yeah. It's, it's just nice to finally tearing cater into, everyone's tastes. Yeah, and that was the thing. Most cases. A lot of them are saying that we want to cater to everyone. We want something off of Xbox, really fulfilled that. Yeah, I don't think anybody can say any more than I expected, doesn't have game know, right? So I will say before, and move on just so cuz I'm sure I'm going to get yelled at by someone for this. None of us talked about the plague tale Sequel, and to be fair, like, for some reason that trailer just glitched to Hell while we were watching. Yeah. All through for everybody off. After looks gorgeous, so good. But I know like I was talking to my, my one of my good friends and he loves the first game and he liked and so I told him the second one was announced off cuz he wasn't watching me three. I don't think. And he was like, super excited. So I I know the first ones on Game Pass and I've heard really I mean, it's got fantastic reviews, and I've been meaning to play it. It's just kind of the horror game and the rats and so about, but I feel like the story is the reviews are absolutely phenomenal for that game. So we all have to give it a go before. The second one comes next year but I figured, I'd mention it. That's awful mentioned for something that doesn't quite fit in my personal taste. But I know a lot of people are essential, so all about great job by Xbox this year and probably the best show they've had in a long time. So do you know who your sales manager in the entire team at Xbox and Xbox game series and Bethesda great job and you know lots of good stuff to play going into the future for sure off.

Guys, III has some great moments like Xbox. We talked about bad, but he's real sad, some downers and let's take a second. I feel like we'd be remiss if we didn't talk about the worst of E3 this year. There's always some Clunkers. So as well go around hating reserving. This time centered on Jake. Jake. Stood out. Is your worst part of E3 this year? if we're talking showcases, Camp Camp, we're huge lie down. They has nothing. I needed to be a showcase there, and it was like, ten minutes of stuff. Half of it. We thought it was. Yeah, it was completely unnecessary and was blown away by them. Not having anything significant for Resident, Evil by trade, why would I spend time producing a show, right? Cuz that cost that takes time. It costs money, right? They hired someone to host that and they want different camera angles. Nothing. Nothing that could have been a few YouTube clips thrown up on their thing. Sites would have covered it regardless. They like why make it a showcase and spend money producing that no one needed. You didn't need to get those eyes on that. Because it was just Do it? It was pointless. It was fruitless. It was nothing there. That needs to be sure. Yeah, I will generally agree. Steven were showcase. Oh, there were some bad ones. Square got saved by Guardians, which I don't even think about all that amazing, but it was new and kind of surprising. So, you know, that's cool. Capcom showed nothing of note for anything, so they're they're up there and I heard the Bandai. Namco show was pretty bad, too long. I did not watch it for whatever reason, so I can't confirm or deny but Capcom for me was just awful. So, but So yeah, I'm with you guys on Capcom. I think Square was saved by Guardians and I still can send him, know you regarding super fan and I like, Guardians a lot to I contend that affected. Me did not have the Guardians of the Galaxy license to it. We wouldn't be nearly as excited as we. Oh, yeah. If they didn't have the Guardians, they they might still have one worse to be 3 because the rest of that. Yes, so bad. I agree with the gameplay for Guardians like super generic, but every joke in that trailer landed for me. And that's why I love about the film's. I find one or two hilarious. So often, you know, it's a customer currently, there's nothing exciting for something like, you're totally good, being excited for that. Like, that's 23 is about, you should be found news. It was fun listening to you, just be really excited during that. Cuz honestly, I was like, looks okay. I mean, in terms of like gameplay, It was a very adventurous type reaction for me the video game, but it was it was fun. Like, you made me want to play in more than the trailer did. We'll put it that way. But yeah. Capcom overall like, you know, I don't know, I just didn't think it was all that great. So I think they, you know, they easily could have shown more and I think the biggest problem, I think a lot of people were expecting to get confirmation of the Resident Evil 4. Dream ain't there? And that just didn't occur. So little this pointing and then it was like, some promise of like, hey, I'm going to start working on Resident Evil, a DLC for you. We're now there should have been how months. Yeah, that should have been done before launch, right? So they could go like through launching a straight into that, like, oh what, what, why, what? Why? So, all right. Let's go into kind of our best to be three. So top five games each of us saw T three and we'll kind of go around the table here. We'll talk a little bit about who won E3 unless you're saving that way. We're going to get right on. Sorry so threw me off with changing it. So It's always go through some fun games shown at E3 this year and see, we'll start with you on number five. Actually not, I'll go ahead and go first. Let you guys kind of panel down after I changed my number 5, game was Halo infinite and because the multiplayer looks great and I wasn't expecting them to show that necessarily it was a sponge more games. So to see that in to see how good it looked in the to really get excited about that. Piece of Halo again, is was pretty fun, so I'm definitely excited. It's one of my top five games of e3. I know a lot of people are probably screaming at me right now cuz it's an Xbox shoulder. Like why isn't it higher? But where we kind of knew what Halo was. So, but to see the multiplayer piece was pretty cool off, I'm going to go. All right, for the record. This might not be like these are my top 5 games but not necessarily in any order. But I'm also going to be boring here and say the Halo 5 multiplayer game. I was like super pumped for that trailer and I think it does enough different from the past games, while still keeping the Halo. Like, gameplay that, I think it'll be a really fun fun game off. Hey, how about you? I think my number five is extraction, Rainbow, Six Siege Direction. It looked cool. Like actually show gaming or a nice day and I think like five times, you know, to make it until 5 is good. But I think the gameplay it's really good, looks a little shallow and I need to see a lot more. I mean I'm probably going to buy it anyway, right. Cuz it it does seem fun but it does look a little shallow and I'm interested to see how that game actually holds up five to ten hours in. That's my concern to yeah. Cuz it kind of hinted at like a robotic element was like, who goes through life, you lose your progress if you like lose or die, but I'm interested like to what extent? They mean that? Like are we going to lose access to operate, as actually have to go in and save them research? Give it like a mini game, right? Left a dead. All right, will you guys re level and then you can like pull them out with a daily, an egg and they come back, you know, I really like they said you lose your own box but I can be going to completely lose access to weapons. Or we just going to lose access to an Aiming reticle and, you know, a Target really like a scope but you know, it really depends on the level are taking that, but it it looks cool and it definitely piqued my interest off like 3 months away or three months yesterday that was like site. So that, that's my biggest thing to that game is like is the 10th time. We play that game together. Going to be as fun as the first. Exactly. And that's my question and I just want to see kind of what they have planned to make that he an old you know, in the trailer it they were not wants where they overwhelmed. Like I want to be absolutely overwhelmed with aliens charging down a corridor. You know like fully chaotic towards like in those final. I don't also super areas. I don't think that's the yep. Of game. This is, I think if we have an overwhelming alien like cord coming at you, you've lost like, it's just guaranteed. Like, it's yeah. Anibal, I think that they increase, don't, I don't think them back for blood or whatever, but I was like hold off sections. They showed weather like Burger King in the walls up and so forth. So, you know, someone's going to tag you're holding off or something and then like two or three millions of births it and they offer like this person pretty easily and I was like it's kind of a wait time as well. There's never any way. No wonder if I wonder if those barricades and that strategy is to keep the horde from all countries at the same time and being a strategic in order to just kind of have those waves like that and and you'll be may be punished. If not I mean I'm hoping. So I'm talking to you. I hope there's no more than I just need to sing off. So okay, completely fair. So I will go to my next one. And then again these aren't necessarily I guess in order But I'm going to say Battlefield 2042. I just you know from and this is a combination of what we saw last one Thursday or Wednesday whatever day it was. And then again it Microsoft Xbox on Sunday. I just think this game was like crazy fun and you know for for Battlefield to come out and just look really fun. Again is really nice. So I'm I'm all in the weather stuff like she looks cool and not overdone Be like, it looks really intense and and insane. The the dynamic, you know, like destruction and all that stuff is just so cool when it's such a natural part of what Battlefield does. So, yeah, I'm in. I can't wait to get my hands on it later. This fall, Stephen help you? Mine is Legend of Zelda. Breath of the wild too long. I, I thought we might see something here. It's been, you know, it was a couple of years since we saw the t's and we did shooting for a release date. Next year, we didn't see a ton of gameplay, Thursday, we saw a little bit and there's a lot of theories going up online. That certain link models in the trailer are placeholders and you'll actually be playing as Potentially again in or Zelda more likely but I'm excited for her breath. Love to I love breath of the wild one. I still never beat that game. I did Pete. All the dungeons? I just never went and actually fought scanning so I should I go do that, but I have very much enjoyed every time I loaded that game up and I love the shrine so much. I think that some of the best games. I love puzzle-solving though, but I think the shrines in Zelda are are, are in breath of the wild or some of the best ever. And I hope they're brought back for two but that's probably my number number for game. Hey, number you, can we talk some a game fast as well, or we completely discounting them? Yeah, no. Go for it. Don't work. I mean, not yet, but she is sex. My order. Sorry, I'm trying to roughly order. My I'm going to sing number for. I'm going to say, guardians, basic, cuz white earlier. It takes what I love about like Telltale Games, right? So, takes like the story elements, I'd like to making decisions affecting the team affecting the relationships, you have with a different members, right? Cuz like, it shows like the rocket was Furious Congress. Isn't that kind of stuff? I love that, right? I like the brunch and storylines. I hope they branched like fairly significantly. I doubt they will, but either way like a few different lines of dialogue or maybe a few different clip scenes will be a lot of fun. You know, it gets so many play, but at least, I think I'm going to want to play through that game a couple of times especially if there isn't that long. So I'll go ahead. Go ahead where, you know, it's nothing about Guardians, it's okay to say yeah, okay, well yeah, I mean outside of that like any reason the highest cuz the gameplay looked a little, generic had a, you know, a similar thing to see and restart Linguistics instruction, like, I'm just not sold. This is going to be entertaining game, play wise, but everything else we saw looked really strong. So I'm past that a little bit longer and I praise Guardians. I go buy it anyway, so I'm hyped. It's, you know, I guess lifestyle. I wanted that for a lot of time. I mean, Yeah, nice. So before we go on Tyler, I just want to say for my list. Personally, I'm kind of picking stuff. We saw at least some more gameplay of or at least something more than just like cinematic trailer. So sure, game will not be showing up on my list even though I'm the same kind of a hundred percent show up. Next year, I'm like, almost guaranteed wage and what is a certain games field? Yeah. Yeah. I figured and, and I'm kind of the same here as you guys. I just didn't, I'm really hyped to see more choice not to play. And, and if they could also take breath of the wild off my list for for that reason. But I kind of know what we're getting with breath of the wild cuz it's a sequel. Where a star-filled like it. It's Skyrim in space, according to Todd Howard. And there's a lot of really interesting stuff there. That's been kind of put out for what we're going to see, but I want to see some gameplay of that before I get like, Before it makes my little spending some time. So Steven I thought about a game more sense, you know yesterday and I've changed my opinion on what I told you offer and took em so much. So this game is down by I know this is the Mario Golf game. Yeah. And yeah, I you know, first so I'm I love my golf games and not going to lie and I'm a bit of a traditionalist. Perhaps you might say snob when it comes to what time are you? What the game more than they know what hang on? Hang on. No. No, I hated though the trailer for like, Rory, McIlroy were the battleship. Laker, the aircraft carrier like plowed into the sure? Yeah, I saw that. I was like, what are you doing to my beloved think sports franchise, right? And and I hated it but so my first reaction was that but then I thought alert more and I'm like, you know, it doesn't like this first of all to Mario Golf. It's not exactly like I'm, you know, coming down the back nine at Augusta for the month. So you gotta kind of put that aside and understand that. Yes, it's a golf game but it's meant to be silly and fun and that's good. Like I I think that it would actually hurt Mario Golf if it was like a similar situation as it played like pea GA to Kay, you know. So yeah, I'm I love the mini mountains now on the more I think about them. I'm I'm in on it. I I'm looking forward to getting it here and what I am here too. So yeah, I'm definitely excited that it looks a lot of fun and it's probably going to be that game. I guess we need to pick up my switch a lot more often. So, Stephen, how are you? Yeah, I'm trying to see cuz I know what my top two are. So this third one is is difficult. But I'm going to have to say Just because they finally brought it back. Even though it's just like a reboot. I hate this. I hate this so much. It's it's I guess it's Advanced worse off. Wanted to reboot Camp. I love Advanced horse. Why do you hate that? It's okay to be exciting. I am, but I I want like I this means one other game leaves my list and that is the part. I hate. V stuff sucks. But yeah, I'm just happy. I can be sad. I believe something else. Yeah, that's true. But yeah, I'm very excited for advance for so long. It's going to be super duper duper fun because it's Advance Wars and I'm excited to bring back and I think I just excited to Play It Again. So that's my number three. Hey now I'm getting really torn now too. I think this is where Forza Horizon choice for me, okay? Cuz it does look phenomenal, it looks gorgeous. And I know it, I know what to expect with it already but for the rising game hasn't landed with a long time, right. I get a quarterly not ages when they called Horizon 3 was a while ago and I'm Forza Horizon 4 didn't get me and I think that was the saying but I am kind of those. I'll go into 5 and just bought a not resonate with me as much as the syrians used to an optimistic and it looks phenomenal and it's just like it was a huge surprise. It's coming out and like a fumes time it's hard not to be excited but like this is off and because like, I'm I think of the things, the safer bet for me. Yeah, just for you, right? They're not there's nothing wrong with that. So yeah, I mean the game looks absolutely stunning and I highly doubt this with the last night. We talked about that game in the stop by. So what kind of leave it there? Cuz I'm thinking a little more, all right. This is where I'm going to go with red fall. Who Sold cinematic? That's disgusting. Yeah. But it's so like I just think it's such a nice addition to the Xbox Library. I agree. I agree and I feel like it's the type of game they need to start making more of And it's yes, it has shooting mechanics in there but it's not a shooter in the sense that Halo isn't gears is right. It's different and it's it's just that one Co-op feel playing with your friends. It's a little tongue-in-cheek, which is fun. Like, you know, I'm one of my favorite, I'm on record, one of my favorite games from last ten years of sunset overdrive, which if nothing else is definitely, tongue-in-cheek, front of that. So yeah I know it's all cinematic and I get it and and I will say like I'm sad to leave games like Far Cry 6 off of your winter. Well wife, okra sex with a girl that was so far away has been out of any kind of my list for years but yeah I agree bred for looks. I mean the Cinematic was really fun damage, the tire everything was like a handwritten. Well it's okay and you know with it's open world it's called and they said it's like it's going to be quite aggressive. So I mean I'm calling to see more of that and it's summer 2023 so we can see gameplay but we got a pretty safe bet. If when we can see more and I I I'm fairly certain, we'll know what? They gave looks like before this year, I'm right? Oh yeah, I would this this has game awards written all over it for a like, in-depth trailer of what, you know games going to look like so yeah. Stephen, let's go get it real quick. I'm kicking. Number 5. I'm doing a redo Halo is off my list. There's No Chaser Halos off my list, I am super excited for it but it was already mentioned. So I think for me back or blood gets put at the V Spot and we saw a lot of gameplay of that. I'm really excited for that game in October. So that's that's just a little change. Every every rule has to have that option, right? But since Tyler picked red fall, and number two, I don't want to copy him again even though I just kicked Halo off the list. So Red Bull would be at number two but I'm going to say again that won't get mad by anybody's, if I don't do it and that should Megami tensei 5 which I'm really excited for Amazon, can we play for it? So you know there I don't need the exception anymore. But yeah, s m t v. I'm really young. I cannot wait for that game. I've loved the Persona series and I've liked the mainline smt games and I can't wait to play five on the switch. I think the game will looked not so great. I didn't log. Graphics. I thought I could have been better but I know the game play that I'm going to get with SMC games which I love and I love the art style of it. Yeah. Like I don't I just need some of the some of the like Textures in the in the out in the yard looked very good. That was a little more crisp, right? Yeah. And so I guess, yeah. You know, if you ask me this question. V games on another day, I would have a different list more than likely, what's up? There was a lot of good stuff and so, yeah. But s m t v is very sad and like I said, read off, I can't wait for that, but since I set it at two output, s m t v. To Hayden learn about you. What's your favorite? There are second favorite game. I think I think Taylor, I think it's Halo, I think it gets pretty high up spot for me, only like I think they showed the perfect amount cuz I thought I'd come out of the show casing and really saturated with them. All right. But like, oh, like, I don't want to hear the second about life is anymore trailers this year. Like, I'll, I'll be angry, but actually they showed the perfect amount and look at the multiplayer overview like month. They came out the day after I was like, Monday Iverson just sold me on it. And I, I've never had my halo moment, right? Again, 8 to 3, I was very young. I never played there's when they were big and I'm the more I see it Halo infinite. Now, the more I'm starting to think this could be my halo. This could be the, like, the one where I have my halo moment, where I'm hooked. I feel like the community from day one. And like I said, I'll have that with two or three and I played for on launch and I didn't enjoy it. Urban that soured me on V. So, is Halo infinite is the comeback. I hope it is and everyone hopes is I think, I think this could be the big one in the series for me. Yeah, and that's when you worded that way. It actually makes me a little jealous of you like to have that moment, you know, where you get hooked again. So yeah, no good call. And I, like I said, I agree with you. That's exact right amount and it was such a good decision on going into games, it's one of the games. I'm desperate to see more of yep. So yeah they left you wanting more which we thought we'd get optional, right? So yeah, they did such a good job. All right. So my top one is, I don't care. Going to be a surprise. Here, I have at least three games were my top 5 where I just know these are hundred our games for me, easy hundred, plus that I'm going to put into him, right? And so the it's Halo infinite with multiplayer. It's Battlefield. And it's this game, Forza Horizon 5 and I'm I hey man, the opposite experience. Like I didn't love three as much. I don't I can't put my finger on why When I fell in love before and I played so much of it and and then I saw this on Sunday and first of all visually, it's one of the absolute most impressive video games I've ever seen and it is absolutely stunning. This is an achievement for the development team and there's no other word to em. Anyway this is they should be incredibly proud of what they've created from a visual standpoint. I have full faith based on my experience in for that the game is going to life is good as it looks and I cannot wait to get my hands on and in November and I'm not going to say too much more cuz I have a funny feeling Steven. You might be going with the same thing here. No, you're absolutely wrong, no power. All right dude. Super excited for Forza Horizon 5 and I hate that I left it off my list but I did. Cuz number one is the most exciting game of the year off. Was shown on the first day of not III III. Oh, yes. At the very end Eldon ring. Oh my gosh. I watched the trailer like seven times already. I cannot wait long game and it's we got a release date of January of next year. And I've read more and more on this game from interviews with Miyazaki, I think actually ended a big job interview that had a lot of information in it and the more I read on it, the more I can't wait. It's going to be different than Dark Souls. But similar in certain ways. Obviously, it's from South game and I love all the changes. They're making, I love the giant, like open world. It's going to be bigger than everything before. There's going to be like four or four six major bosses for each like domain area plus with no extra dungeons in each area that have that's own typical like Souls boss at the end I just cannot wait for this. I am so so, so so excited for this game off. No idea and they forgets to laid out of January. I'll be so sad but if it comes out in January like it's supposed to that'll be the best is nothing ever. Like really else comes out in the early part of the year and it's gave me a ton of time to just sink my teeth in but nothing else to take up my time. I can't wait for Eldon bring. Yeah. And I think in January is a perfect time for those games because like the fall is so usually saturated with like you're multi player Shooters and January feels good about the time where you're like I'm ready for something. Yeah for him to change the pace up. So yeah, it's perfect time for that. That said wage. I think I would probably break my television playing while he's not that bad. You said that a little bit of patience. I guess that's fine, but the co-op Tyler and play with me and I think coops going to be easier this time around than than in previous from South games. And so I hope that's the case. Yeah, all right, I didn't take us and bring us home here with the segment. What is your top one? I'm in the exact same spot. Steven I think it was old and ring, I'm sad. I went before you then Thursday. I mean, it's like a cooling, everything you said, it looks phenomenal. I've been waiting to hear more for ages and like we got so much information that traitor. Like you said, like information just coming out and every angle now down here more and more about and I just can't wait. I'm I mean, I don't know how many games you've played in this whole series. Stephen, I'm definitely more of a newcomer, right? Okay, so I like definitely check with us to you when I was younger. bloodborne was you know different but that was probably the first one like completed and I went through that gave me like two or three times and then I'm actually probably doubling more in detail page or follow the soulsborne style games rather than actual from software titles but this I don't know how the word it. I feel like it just looks like an evolution of everything. There's come before and I'm so excited to actually get my hands on him play. And I think the fact that we know it's coming in January, like there's no more coming soon. There's no more like off, you know, tentative release those. I think they've got a date down, and I'm fairly confident in it and it seems like they are so, yeah, I couldn't be more excited. All right. Awesome song. Jersey three. Check out a different format for obvious reasons, excuse me. And it's you know, so it hadn't very largely digital presentation or because we couldn't be there in person. And next Thursday, will be. Again, that's awesome. We can't wait but let's talk for a second about this format all-digital because we've seen over the course of the past year, a lot of people clamoring for like just get rid of each real together and off all that type of thing and just go all-digital and You know, we got that this year, out of necessity, but let's talk about the sustainability, this model like does it work? Is it something that should replace the in-person event? There's always going to be a digital element D3 now because everything is treated right and all the, all the showcases get screamed and woke up for deep dive coverage, gets creamed by the likes of IG, have it? And Geoff, kieley, Etc. But so you're gonna start with you hear the the format this year's play. What do you think worked? And what didn't? I thought the showcases were good for some of them I think Xbox and Nintendo did good but Nintendo's very used to this format so not surprising their XBox did very good like so much better than last year's just need to trade reps of shows they had and then you know telling us they would have new stuff every month and then like lying about it and changing their mind when they pretending we were wrong. Like that was dumb and then last year birth Sure, that killed it. So, I think those doesn't, well, I thought I know it wasn't part of III but Keely, Summer Games Fest was in terrible and I think it's mostly because I was so bored at home that, like, any bit of thing to change, the pace was nice. And then obviously, the book ends on that. Show some game, we didn't even mention was tiny teenage or land Yaris and that game. Like, it's very exciting. So, I thought, and and who was had a good show to not great, but good. So I thought the conferences went well with those pretty easily transferred to the online formula, everything else did not work and I think some of the conference's would have been better if fans were there. I think who I don't know. Who said it, I tell you. I think you talked about it but you might have seen it somewhere. Yeah. Where some of these companies might have held some of their bigger stuff for next year. Because they wanted fans to be there and I think there's probably a lot of Merit to that and so I think that fact May made this not work so well too and not to say that like I said it was happening tendo Xbox had good shows, I just think square and like squares might have been a little better and Capcom probably would have done one at all so often I don't know. That's kind of my my thoughts Hayden. What about you? Yeah I think this worked well I mean I think looking back we had some pretty good showcases. I think Thursday you'll be self-centered folks Nintendo data really good job and yeah I agree with you though. Like even it wasn't III like teasing was basically a showcase and that was And it was good, it was patchy. But it was, you know, it had a few highlights. I think the biggest thing lacking for me this year was off. But this just not that much. Other information coming out about anything that was mentioned. Like, I know we've seen some of the big issues of like, total hours and would like to be able to bring into the engine did. But I think a lot of the smaller titles have had the opportunity to really delve into anything, some of them, like I said, they replaced in Summerville looked phenomenal. I'd love to hear more about, you know, like slime Rancher to in a plague tale and party animals. And there's a lot. I'd love to dive into here, Thursday. And we just haven't really been given that chance. I shredded his, where I'd love to hear more about, cuz I like, there's a lot here that she had. I've, you know, argue, I've never really experienced before either. Lot of people have. But like, I mean, Eldon ring, like, I definitely plays a few games similar to it, but it's, it's a essentially, a brand new experience for me and shredders is the same like, on that list. I want a game before in their life people have, but it just wasn't in my time, right? Like, I've only really been deep into games the past, decade in sports. It's never my thing, but over the past couple of years ago, my taste off Broadened. And I think something like that actually looks really fun and stuff like I could go on. I'm not going to go on but I could go on this so much, I'd love to hear about me. Having to have much of a chance to and I think that read at least write down Yeah. Okay, so feel free to interject at any point, guys, cuz I have every capability of going out, a mass of Renton. So and, and I want this for your conversation so long. I think that, yes, I use that a terrible weird spot right now because off It was originally designed as a like, you know industry trade show. Where it's all industry professionals and media kind of coming together, share information and create, you know, get the information out there about the products that were coming, whether it's games or consoles, or whatever rent, and that sort of evolved over the years, especially once, like our connectivity internet, got to a point where streaming became a very common way to, you know, present things like this and and then it started to shift to become a more fan focused event. And and there's two things are always kind of pulling at each other because As you know, fans care about height fans care about game announcements and you know World premieres and all that stuff and that's great and that's super fun. And it's a huge part of history record industry, professionals and games media care about that stuff. And then they also care about what you were just talking about hating. Some of these deeper Dives with more information in the games. I would venture to Guess that. In fact, I know, because I watched the screams of E3 in the past, like, you know, three years ago, et cetera, where they're doing these deeper Dives on Monday Tuesday, Wednesday, the actual days a week. And the chat is just like it's so boring. Move on to the next thing. You know. They they want the like two to three minutes segment that's meant to build up the hype and excitement. And I think both things can coexist and they do in a normal length. Resetting because you have what used to be called a zero. Which way is the Monday? Every 3 I misspoke for some of these other ones. Exactly Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday 3:30. But they zero was considered Monday and that's when all the briefings and shackles were held and then they started to creep into the prior weekend and, and it just became sort of two separate things over. There's like three days worth of the showcases, briefings conferences, whatever you want to call them that. I'm actually part of e3 and then you transition into the three days that are III, which is also floor and really the Deep Dives with the devs and all that stuff. I felt like one on this year with the digital presentation, Is that they tried to bring some of these industry things into these streams. So some of these like round tables and off, you know, the panels that would have that happen at E3 every year by the way. But there for like industry professionals that, you know, live in this world. And they tried to bring those into the space of you know, the stream and I think fans only generally care about seeing the world premieres and I was a bit of a backlash there that said the backlash showed why the panels in conversations being hag are necessary and need to be had. I'll say that piece and off and just kind of leave that bad but I feel like it broke down there cuz I feel like they were trying to do both while really only targeting off the fans seem to be on. And so I think that we need to very much go back next year, too. in personal event where games and media can really dig in depth and get into those things and fans can still have their hype because all the fans that were in chat over the last three or four days saying you know where the games were the games more or they showing anything new where the new announcements just constantly like do you really think there's like thirty some hours worth of a new game announcements like come on There's just not that much so but Tyler a lot of it's going to be deep, Dives. I we have a certain amount of time in my schedule and I can't actually take any of that time to check the schedule of things that are coming. So whenever I tuned in, in my little bit of free time to watch any three, they just be showing games all the time there. There's this wonderful Stephen, four people just like you that is called YouTube where you can go and get the exact thing you want on demand. Yes. And speaking of, you know, YouTube like not to go down the rabbit hole here, but like where the three of us are generally. We're considered games journalist. Guys, we we do Thursday and The the sentiment out there amongst more than some YouTube personalities that, you know, games Journal, journalists hate games and blah, blah, blah Ives absolutely patently false. I don't know about you too long but, you know, obviously this is a highly lucrative career for the three of us. You know, considering that we all have jobs on top of it and do other things and whatever, right? It's not about Play hits. Of course everybody that does this loves games. Like yes, there are discussions to be had within the realm of games that are important and can be have and and all at the same time, while loving games and I think it's wage. So anyway, that is my rant. I think I think some things worked the briefings worked as they should because this is how they're always done, it's just an extra, they'll be crowds to Right. And that'll be what's different but they'll be streamed. Like, they always are and they were this year too. So you know, they weren't the other stuffed and and not because like wage was bad and not because they shouldn't have been shown necessarily but fans like what fans like and they just one constant off there for the height. Not necessarily the information, I guess, in in a lot of cases. So, anyway, that is my three rant. I enjoyed it but at the same time I just can't wait till my sure when it goes back to normal. So, all right guys, it's time to answer that. Age-old question. The only question anybody cares about, Who won E3. And and we're not allowed. By the way, the rules were not allowed to say everyone because people roll their own, the game of when he reeks, we got a new games, right? Like we were down, there must be a winner and a loser. There must be an epic fail. There must be YouTube. Headlines that have all caps for certain words. We all pretty much in agreement on where I have a feeling. We're all going to say the same thing and for the first time we can do it without like having to like twist yourself into a pretzel, making a very deep and I feel like Xbox like decisively have the best showing this year and I just pointed house. Do you guys here? Nintendo did very well and Ubisoft actually did very well. Yeah. But I think expires stands above here. I think they had just a wonderful showing getting three. I thought it was really impressive. They have answered the accusations that box has no games and like now if you say XBox doesn't have games that's just cuz you don't like the type games Xbox might have as an offering but they're plenty of different games and lots of different genres that are coming back within the next 18 months and that's really exciting. So pain will go you who want? Yeah, exactly. It was like folks all the way and there's not really a debate in my mind about it. Nintendo did well, you'd be subject is, you know, surprisingly well, but outside of that like it was going to contest right Xbox. I had it from the get-go when they should start all fields and they were killing it all the way until red flag. And I think they've it's it's the perfect comeback, they needed they've solidified themselves as one of the big three again, and for the first time, I'm in a long time. I'm stupidly excited for everything. They have coming and more. And I, I'm just so happy, my Xbox will be happy. My controller white, because I'll be home all the time, but bringing them. It's a good time to be an ex-boyfriend. Know how long has it been? Since you can say that Stephen have a year-round you're going to say, well, I thought about it, took the means, no, I just Nintendo had a very, very good showing. And I do get the arguments of people saying there was something for everyone in the Nintendo showing cuz they were, but, you know, who else had something for everyone? And they're showing Xbox. They had sea of Thieves with Pirates of the Caribbean Battlefield Psychonauts minutes, party animals, Hades Halo, infinite Diablo, two a plague tale, Far, Cry, 6 slime, Rancher to grounded off. You didn't Chronicles Age of Empires, the outerworld, Microsoft flights in Forza, Horizon 5 and read fall. Like there was something for everyone in that list and there was multiple some things for a lot of people and that was I think X-Box wins and I don't think it's all that close. I thought Nintendo was a very very, very strong second but I don't think they, they got close to a choice on this one. I, I do think the people that say that Xbox did not win tend to be Fanboys for the other people and I think just like, I know we're next box show, so everyone's going off like the ponies are going to look at us and be like, well do you chose Xbox? But I think from an objective perspective Xbox One If you can even give a shit but I think X-Box I have like yeah sadly I know. Yeah it's well you know it's against G also having to fight about but I think this year you know but the biggest thing for me is stepping back from it and looking at it from a distance here is that the Big Chic most compelling argument. They made was that it's no longer going to be great to own an Xbox. It's right now great. I want an Xbox and that's the biggest difference in what they know cuz last or 2019 season was very much about. Here's why it's gonna be great, right? And, you know, they they really made the cake Game Pass and about why you should want to become part of the Xbox ecosystem. And this year, it's, this is why it's great to be in it. So I you know, I think they did a lot there to to make that case, not just for Game Pass as a service but just for the games that are going to have the library, they're going to have and what it means to own an Xbox and twenty one. And I think France gravel you know the Xbox fans out there. Can have a lot of pride in that for the first time in a while without having to really get inventive with how they argue so long. I think they've done a great job. All right, guys, I'll see you when you want to run some for some releases and stuff coming down by the time or go live next week. So let's talk about Stellaris federations expansion, the Stellaris fun little strategy game play ball on the Xbox. You can get. That's on the 17th. Discolored and wingspan on the 18th, Dungeons and Dragons dark Alliance on the 22nd along with the Olympic Games. Tokyo 20/20 on the 22nd and then you can get off. The biggest one is Scarlet Nexus on the 25th. So that's the. And there's there's a couple little other little things in there but those are probably the big stuff Scarlet. Next is, I played the demo pretty fun little band. I am in Co action game, like the astral train from last year or the year before kind of reminds me of that. So interesting to see what the reviews are going to look like for that but there's some big stuff coming off. Like that. It's nice to see these types of games. Make their way onto Xbox, like, pretty much or on release date cuz this in the past would never happen. So right. Yep. So awesome. Well guys, I think that it brings us to where we put a lid on our III covers for 2021. There's plenty more on the website and check it out. Gender xbox.com check it out there last three. Three stuff more going up here in the next few days. And next week is we transition, you know, kind of back to normal cycle. Well why are plenty of stuff on see if he's yeah where a man? See, if these parts life waiting for the in the dark Alliance and probably school next next week. So if you're looking for guidance or just some tips to lose then you know check it out. Yep. And maybe some other stuff too, on the bigger world of Life, see things, maybe and maybe it's Kayla stuff coming off. Thank you. So yeah, lots of exciting, something we're working on and happy to be to get that out to you, as well. So make sure you check it out, generation, xbox.com, and just take part in the conversation, would really appreciate it so long. With that for a missing. And I'm kind of the same. Thank you so much for joining us for E3 2021. It's been a blast, as always, can't wait to do it in person next year, it's going to be so much fun. It'd be able to talk to you from Los Angeles, where him is literally going to melt? Because he thinks that like seventy degrees of super hot. So it's, it's, it's, it should be interesting. But guys, thank you. It's been fun as always and, you know, can't wait to do it in person next year and enjoy that. So, and, and you'll be like long enough to drink in America. And when we do it. That isn't, yeah, it's really weird. So I've been old enough to drink here a while. Yeah, I will be back, you'll be all grown up in the next year. So anyway, thanks guys. And thank you. Everybody out there who listens and help support the show continues here, that we really dead. .

The Case of the Vanishing Switch Pro - NVC 564

"This episode of nbc is sponsored by indeed welcomed nintendo voice chat i official podcast indicated to all things nintendo. I'm your host happily and joining me. Today is my partner in crime. Revolution high can you describe me. That way earned crime over on news team news. Let's go the way this also joining me is nominal intended voice. Chat host seth macy. Hello former team. News relents way back when also former one up a cohort as that is true. That's where i got started. I used to write the net flicks add to q. Blog because that was such a new thing streaming netflix had its own blog and who is our special guest john from life. Hey welcome john. Cartwright tune in netherton nintendo voice chat great to have you rich beyond here. Yes we have a lot to cover. E- three twenty twenty one is officially underway. Well sort of summer game. Fest just happened some announcements happen. They were not necessarily nintendo switch related. But we will cover a couple of them will also be talking about the switch pro reveal that did not happen and why that might van and finally we've got a lot of other news as well so we will be getting all of that and talking about game to garage which is available. We'll yeah i got a yeah from the audience there so all right. Let's get to it summer game fast. Not a lot of switch news but while it's only available on metal slug tactic semi right that game. Incredible yeah is this metal slug game. It looks like it's a tactic. To and then i looked at the name of it. I was like wow. It's exactly what i thought it was going to be named. So that's very very convenient and easy to figure out the entire presentation worth about. It was two hours of fine metal. Slug makes it. Yeah there is this. This game called elden something something that was also there. But who cares metal. Slug tactics stunk. Air but it's by dot e mu are also i believe working on a teenage mutant. Ninja turtles beat them up. I believe they also did a streets of rage or so they have a history with the platform and so i fully expect Tactics to be coming to the nintendo switch. And frankly it's gonna be my game of the year when it does looking perfect game. Perfect fit for the nintendo switch. It does and tea lopes on the soundtrack to from something mania. He's also doing tnt as well. East getting around. That's amazing awesome also shown over during summer game fast was another story trailer of for monster hunter stories which i gotta say everybody. That game is super flying under the radar. And i cannot want to play it. I have been lying so much. Monster hunter is as anybody. Who's been listening to this. Podcast will tell you. And i gotta say monster hunter stories. It looks glorious and has rpg fan. I cannot wait to play it doing what they're doing with the battle system in this one on three s i remember it. Was this rock paper scissors kind of fair. Is it the same here good question. I am not sure. It's like a turn based battle system for sure. I think it might be a slight evolution of kathy first. Game which also flew under the radar. I think the main thing that grabs me is now that i'm familiar with monster. Hunter somewhat recognizing a lot of the monster's now and i'm just really digging that kind of cel shaded look at. It has a real style to it. Yeah know we want to hear what you have to say. I was going to say. I mean people who have heard me on this show before i know that i just about so hard off monster hunter. I'm so sorry by doing. I know the look the look of this and the kind of more story focus feature and the fact that it might not be this very complex super action combat might. I might i'm intrigued. I would try audibly. Maybe maybe this is my gateway to monster. Hunter could say yeah. I remember the first time i saw the trailer for this is actually during a recording of nbc. And i thought like read. Who's the producer had put like the wrong like footage. Because i thought it was. I wasn't really paying attention cries. But i was like wow. This is determine based jr pg with like qc cel shaded monster hunter universe. Guess i'm so into this see rub. Here's what might grab you instead of monster hunter rise in moscow hundred stories. The monsters are your friends there. Helping you out there with you. All receptor way. So you're not putting them in carting them up there your pals. I love friends friends. Okay no that actually did do something for me there. So yeah look. Maybe we'll see we'll see we'll be getting a closer look at monster hunter. Stories and monster hunter rise content which. I'm looking forward to your in the capcom expo. That is coming later this weekend. Beyond that. were there any other announcements. Summer game fest. That hot anybody's attention or for that matter during the day of the devs presentation that all right away. After i didn't i was kind of watching day of the dads out of the corner of my eye while i was getting ready for this podcast and a lot of those games look really gorgeous and i'm sure many of them are coming to the nintendo switch. Yeah you know where my heart lies. So i watched the doves. I love dan the devs there actually again. There were surprisingly few switch games. Compared to how many games look like they should be on this lynch and some that really jumped out. There's a game called a musical story. it's none of these really new announcements. A lot of them have been sitting like on steam and sort of preview. But this is the first time breaking out with big trailers and a big showcase like this A musical story looked really interesting. It's a rhythm game. Set in the seventies that follows this young man who he looks like. He's in a coma and he has lost all his sort of like laying in the state where he doesn't remember what happened to him and he has to go back through his memories and sort of figure out how he got here and i guess has problem somehow but he does this through remember. He's he was in a band and he remembers the songs. And it's very interesting rhythm game where instead of having like. Serve a line based grid at the circle and it's very. It's less focused on like timed button while it's still time button presses but this less focused on reading grant and more on like getting into the flow in the feel of the music looks a little bit dark but also it. It looks very cool. I had never seen that before. And i thought a musical story. Especially if you're intermittent games looked amazing. There was a new trailer for axiom. Verge to if that's your jam you don't have to fight bosses at all in that game if you don't want to but there are many buses that you can fight Let me see other switch. She thinks a garden story. Was i think the third one. I've had my own garden story for a while. It's is a little top down adventure in this world of fruit and flowers plays this little great name concord. Try because that's a very good grief. Yeah there's a little putty names that can. I played a demo several years ago at the seattle these expo. That was very good. But it's very exploration crafting like some zelda vibes to it a very very cute and soft focused on crafting and building and making friends and solving puzzles And that's coming to both pcs. Which i think the summer so very soon we have more shows coming up this week in quite a few including square next and of course nintendo direct is coming up next tuesday. We previewed e-3 pretty extensively in the most recent episode but really quickly lightning round sir. One thing that everybody is looking forward to for me. I am really hopeful and excited to be able to see breath the while to at the nintendo direct on tuesday. How about you john. Mitchell fusion was nineteen years ago. Now is a long time. So it's about five metro five and there was a little teaser at the end of salmon's returns which sort of alluded to could be the plus of metro and five and i don't think prime fall is coming anytime soon. So hopefully it's time for fusion to finally have. Its follow up about you. So many things i realistically i would love to see animal crossing. Get that long rumored cafe I would also look to see game play from split in three. I think that'd be super bowl. My pipedream. I'm wearing the shirt today. You can't release the lives. That i want to see in the world out into the world but i i would love. I would love to see golden sun. I have been wanting it for so many years every time. Camelot has gone like two or three years without making anything i think. Okay now it's time bring me golden sun. And they haven't yet. And mario golf is coming here soon and so it's about time for them to make something else so it's not going to happen. It's never gonna happen. What can you do bring back. Golden sun you cowards. Cowards curry and says bring us home. Well obviously i wanna see breath of the wild to or whatever the zelda sequel is going to be called yeah like got me thinking about gold assan how to you know. Enter two hundred and fifty six random characters in to carry over from the last one like we all did before snow. Yeah now that sounds. that'd be an awesome darko surprise. Anything metro is gonna make me happy. Let's see me another three. Also i love bayonet. Oh it's been too long. Having several years at this point they've released bayoneted to like three times since they announced another three.

Let's continue on to our next topic and the main topic for this show. Switch pro reveal. It did not happen. So let's go back a couple of weeks ago to before memorial day. All of a sudden switch pro rumors. Just start picking up so much. Heat heap insiders are around on twitter. Saying it's going to happen. It's going to happen. Bloomberg hosts an article saying that a switch pro could be out as soon as september there speculation on the name. Super nintendo switch a sounds amazing. Great name people are saying. Where's my super nintendo switch. And we're waiting. We're waiting we're waiting. Everybody had shells but it did not show up. No super nintendo switch so the question. I'm wondering as where is it. And will we be seeing it during east re what we think. It's been very interesting to sort of on the news. Side the reporter side of this as as we are awaiting this maybe or maybe not because i mean without getting too far into it and all the rest of your experiences have been with us but every every two or three days or so flies around internally like between influencers content creators generalist media just people who would have sort of a stake in that stuff. And it's sort of this vibe of oh well it's going to be announced today at noon or whatever and so we all we all get ready. And we're all. They're all staring at twitter refreshing. The twitter feeds. We've got our shelves ready to like film in right at as fast as possible and then nothing happens and then we all sort of go. Okay well. I guess it's happening at five pm today. And the nothing and this repeats every couple days or so and it just happened and it's it feels like this weird game of chicken that everyone's playing with intendo but i don't know i mean. The rumor has bend there that there are games that like depend on the pro to be announced right like their games that want the pro to be announced first so they can then show up in all their glory and if those games are presumably part of it does e three presentation than surely the pro or whatever it is must come before the presentation but we are running out of days. I'm i'm at the point. Where i'm one hundred percent certain. We're not getting a new switch model this year. I think the whole thing has been this incredible study in human psychology especially grew technology. Is the rumors have come out. And they just keep coming. And we've you know it's it's it's confirmation bias. We we're we're forgetting about the ones that don't hit but will remember the one that actually finally does hit when intend to announce its direct plans and they said we will be showing forty minutes of intendo switch software. There is no logical way for you to reach the conclusion that that means that they're going to release hardware before but that's where everybody went. Everyone's like oh my god they're not gonna talk about hardware that must mean therefore air go. They're going to release the switch pro tomorrow. Into all of our homes sugar motta was going to knock on our door. Hand us grow play with us. Maybe even for like a couple of minutes just to hang out and be like that. Was the rumor that everyone was believing. And there is so little hard evidence of anything that points to the existence of a fully realized updated nintendo switch mall and i've talked about switch pro like a million times. I want to switch pro like more than anything at. I'm at the point now. Where i'm starting to look at it trying to keep my expectations and check. This isn't intendo. They sell so many nintendo switch hostels as they exist. Now they sell so many switch light. There's a semiconductor shortage and whereas sony and xbox kind of had no choice but to release their consoles in spite of the shortage is like nintendo hasn't really need to the switch switches four years old. It's not like seven years old. Yes for was or the xbox one i think all those Those screens that they ordered the lead sam. I'm starting to think that they just like they have a deal with some airline. And they're going to be putting those in the back of the seats of the head rush for like an switch that you can play on flights. That's like i'm at that point now. It's just like i don't believe in anything anymore. Kids are listening with santa's either switch pro. You can't just see isn't real. Wow i was as a joke. It's a classic seth. Google historically speaking nintendo don't tend to have harbor revisions in their durex. Like the switch. Light was just press release in a trailer three. Dsl was the same tedious was the same tedious. thousand same. don't think they've ever done in a direct before maybe new three. That was a japa- japanese only direct Most of the time they do it on their own time and then later on show the games but we are getting to a point where the twenty seventeen games are starting to get. This equals breath the to in splatoon three coming that's about to presumably next Twenty twenty one might be the time they starts refresh that a software cycle. So maybe it would make sense to launch hardware alongside those. But i don't see any point in announcing that now. If it's if it's happening next year. I think the problem that nintendo is facing right now is while the nintendo switch is still fine and can run any games just fine We are now into the next console cycle for those other councils that we don't like to talk about around here and the nintendo switch switches. Still great don't get me wrong but it is starting to look little bit long the tooth it's been four and a half years since the nintendo switch. I launched which is insane to me. I cannot actually believe it but For reference the ps four. Pro i believe came out what twenty eighteen thereabouts so that was about or four and a half years after the release of the ps four. So it's about time or a switch pro to come out. I do think that there is a hardware revision in the works. Ursus way too much smoke around this. And so i feel like there has to be some fire. Do i think it's coming out this year. I would be pretty surprised. I mean that would be a really shop big shock because there's just gonna be any of them around would be a tremendous shortage given the lack of components and everything but could i absolutely believe that it would be say early. Twenty twenty two. Yeah i can't. I think it very much depends sort of on what the all all three of you said. It doesn't like that it doesn't Doesn't need this right like they don't need the sales. The nintendo switch is still selling incredibly. Well the games are still selling incredibly. Well there's no monetary reason for this by if they start running up against games length breath of the wild to in these games that are going to sort of maybe need that extra boost end there really just isn't any reason to not release those games and they're running out of other games to release incentive those games than they might just have to pull the trigger on that just for the sake of making sure that their software does it look ridiculous to put time perspective to cat to the great job of peaceful. Probe the we. You live a shorter life than the switch is now living. It's a pass the life cycle of the system. The thing is maybe this is just my perspective. But it doesn't feel like the switches that short on games if if games like news pokemon snap or mazda hundred rise or much. Her stories aren't coming out. Then we're playing games like we're playing various other indie games so hit and feels like Flow software is still relatively healthy for the nintendo switch. I feel like. I've been playing my switch more than practically anything else of weight. You could still remastered. Ps two games come on. Let's let's get it on. Switch last minute i want to say. I think it's easy for me to go really that many switch games coming out right now. But we're we're less than we go from a direct out. That if i said that out loud in a meaningful way really be next week so this question that i i am kind of wondering is it's a switch pro gets announced. Let's pretend that gets announced at the nintendo direct. And we find out that preorders going live like immediately after do you immediately go and pre-order switch fro or go. I'm okay with my current switch. I yeah i'm part of the problem. Yeah immediately not just because like my job is literally to present the audience with pre ordering opportunities of where to get them. but also. Because that's what i did when they out the switch as soon as the pre mike. I'm getting the switch. Look at me now. And that's just. I mean i. Yeah i'm immediately sucker. We had a vessel listenable cup. Just now when i saw that. I don't care about any other features if there's no real basil for me software dependent if they're either games that are exclusive that i want like if they do start separating them out sort of in the same way that they separated separated out some games on the whatever the new three d. s. x. l. was even remember how that all worked if they separate separate out games like that or if something like breath loyal to just looks real bad lake. I'm not someone who gives too many about graphics but if it is a real significant difference between the two game that i care about that i will probably cave but if everything beasley looks the same in. It's just shining here in a little bigger for me. The main metric is an nicer screen and also. Apparently it's going to have the which means four k while docked and i am totally okay with that and finally like it brings a lot of games up to like sixty fps That would be totally grand. So that would be totally. That would totally make this. Come out worth it. I think there is a comparison point to be made with the new. The new nintendo thirty s which improve loading times and resulted in older games. Being a little bit choppy on launch. Three s systems but ultimately nuorgam's didn't really support the add ons at the new three d. s. offered so there's reason to wonder if the switch pro will end up being like at kind of like a let down but i think that will be end up in more sweet Sorry his for pro like in that it will become kind of the new standard for developers who are just racing ahead right now with the next generation of consoles. Okay let's keep going. There's a new game out. Everybody and pretty excited about this one seth. You reviewed a game builder garage. Given an eight out of ten over on aegean dot com. And i'm just wondering why don't you tell us a little about this experimental game. That is out now from nintendo. Well i think. I say the word delightful one hundred times in marriage because it only needs to be said once is absolutely the most delightful way to learn programming concepts and like logic in how game engines work. I've never worked in a game engine other than rpg maker which is a whole other thing but Yeah you just have these little cute little creatures. They're called note ons and you connect them together and it you start through these lessons building. Different types of games and god. I even mentioned this in my review. It's just like back in the day. You get computer magazine with a game that you would have to write seven eight hundred lines of basic and by the time you get done you'll be like oh i understand how joystick inputs work. Now that's kinda how this is like you. You you start with something you add your inputs. Whom the guys running around jumping over boxes just like Like on the on the screen right now and then you add a million other things where it's really interesting is the the level of complexity that you can like put in your creations is is pretty astounding and you go through all these lessons by the time you're done you actually haven't learned about every node on in the game there's still like probably fifty percent of all the know don's are still like there you probably half so yeah it's it's just a superfund super incredible it's a- puzzles in it are to teach you about you know programming concepts kind of tough. Sometimes i'm not really like keen on them because sometimes it's more of just guessing like a range of the know don's are like they have a numeric range in them so they can output or input numeric ranges and so obvious but sometimes you be like oh i guess the range between like minus three and then three and then you look in the box only moves a little waging. Okay must be between my seven. Those ones aren't as much fun Yeah this game is wonderful. And i'm hoping to get my kids into. I don't think this should be a good game for like a little kid. But it's definitely with guidance. Like a like a like a preteen a teen and like you know. Just play with the kids folks. It's good fun for the family. And then you can make your cool games. You can make games like mine which is super all in man fantasy which i shared on twitter guy. He just you just jump off a thing and you try to land on platforms. That's all there is to it and there's a secret in their first person who gets secret win badge bar. I can't wait until people deal with this kind of had. This premise within lavaux elaborate. Vr had a very similar garage solve builder but the thing was in that game. You couldn't share them for whatever reason you couldn't share codes you couldn't other even aged system intend now but one person as she did recreate within lebow via they made the macneice shrine breath of the wild and it was one to one so they somehow programmed it so the metal ridges would move when you pointed them at jaric controls and the program guardians into it was crazy where they could do so that never blew up because no one wanted to make things because you can't show them you could do that. Just shows the potential. And i can away to see what people can do now the they can finally put things out to the wealth in this. I'm like really excited. Because you know it's just like any sort of creative toolbox it's you give it to the masses and it's like it's astounding. What people are going to be able to figure out with this like just the the the level of complexity that is there and being able to stack the note on to make them do so many different things. Just like the path it takes a lot of concentration. The sodas to figure out the way that some of these have to link together to get the affected your desired. The one thing that i i one complaint was that you can't just like hit a button and see what the code is like even if they had just created some sort of proprietary programming language. Call it you know. Note on plus plus. I think that would have been great as the next step. So you could learn the actual coding elements but as far as like programming games in an engine. This is incredible. I just can't wait to actually sit down not be burdened by deadline and make super following may fantasy to summer games. The thing i really like that nintendo made this game because i. I'm glad that they're staying toward their experimental routes it kind of brings me back to the nintendo. We in some ways like they're continuing through line where they want to educate and teach people things and it's good for all ages. This is like classically nintendo stuff. I wish that it were a little less generic. I almost wish that they had a nintendo character. Attached to it. Like yoshii's a game builder or something like that. So you know yoshi eats the levels and spits them out a character. I mean like your guide. Bob is just dot but the yeah the writing is really excellent and sharp witty and fun and it never makes you feel stupid. And so yeah. It is kind of missed opportunity to not have any sort of branded tie in there but like as generic as they look. They're just so like even the note on its. I'd be doing something else in the have it going in the background and they'd be like occasionally like me and my hair like what was what's going on here. It's just oh that's the the left stick is trying to get my country for some not answer smash got we got a whole list of smash characters and the q. Ahead of the no dance like. Where's while luigi. Where's where's gino. Get them in. I maybe get sore and then we can get note on its. You're not a peak anna sort of the the square the square. Mafias coming for you. Watch out for all the people in the comments. Get upset with me. Oh my god it's okay. Right back i agree with you. Look kingdom hearts but not in my smash. I like that. We manage to just pivot to a drive by like hit on the garage. Segment is really good. Sorry really loves great. excuse. I'm sorry you previewed game build garage. What was your takeaway from it. I'm not that different. From honestly i think it. I think it looks wonderful. I'm excited to give it a try myself. I i am someone who likes that only played. Rpg maker back in the day and has no idea what i'm doing in any respect and i've tried over the years i've thought oh. Learning basics of coding would very cool. I should learn that but pretty much. Everything i have tried has either bed. I've been too complicated in the sense that it was very dry and like coding books for adults or something or it's been like targeted five year olds which is fine but it ends up being like so simplistic and cutesy. That i'm like okay. I need something a little more adult so this seems perfect for me the thing that i said. I don't know how much you can speak to this. The thing that i was sort of disappointed. Learn in my preview is that the sharing features are really curbed right like they do have the ability to share basically the these like eight or nine digit codes or something. Where i if. I make a game. I can give a code that you upload it to your game and then you can play my game. But there's not anything. Like in whichever it was both mario maker than it was in the first mario maker where you can just browse games oriented and there was like a discovery system. And you could play like you yet. Ten mario's he played through all these levels or whatever that were just randomly thrown in. I thought that was super cool. I kind of understand why they're not doing this. Because when you're not just limiting yourself tomorrow tools. It's easier draw or create inappropriate images the people to stumble upon. But it's still a bummer. You know yeah. It's what i went to share my game today like. I can't remember. It's bob or alice is two dots and i think it was. Alice came out and she's like. Oh hey you're going to share game okay. And then she just went through like if it's bad. Don't do this if it's flashing lights. Please don't shit you know. Like basically the boilerplate like legalese. But in a very cute and charming way because they're worried that people are going to is. You can draw whatever you want and you know people i mean what does he do with a smash level created like the first thing. We did like us so yeah but one cool thing is you. If next time. I'm in the office. When we're in like the bay finally we can also visit each other check game and we can just share it like through like a like a street pass almost series switches. Yeah you can just switch switch it up. Hold it to try that. That's that's sick. I didn't know that i like that. Obviously haven't tried it out. Because i don't know anybody. Who has the game yet tomorrow last question. Do we think you'll have any staying power i think with. I hope that there is a dedicated community of people who get into this and sort of make their own sub reddit and just like have a community of people building games and and i think if it does take off in that way like there is a community around. I think this will have legs. I think this is something they can support. They can add new features like they've done with super mario maker to there are some like some missing bouillon operators. You only have And not you don't have Exclusive and or or the other one but yeah and like. I think this is something. That's like right for updating and just like making it better in making a more robust and incredible engine and i'm super excited about it. I want to be a part of that community of like minded. We just making the dumbest games about people falling. And it's like thirty dollars right. It's cheap it's a good bargain game too. Yeah and i don't know if it's if there's a physical edition but that's like one of those. This is one of those games. That i kinda wanna buy on physical. I think there is a fiscal but in europe for some reason. I don't know why that's usually guys get the best stuff. Actually nisshin wrong in the state's gonna switch around every now and then a play drinks quite a lot and i. I feel like that's quite a dedicated community for that game. But sunni kinda just put out to release the and then moved on and it feels nintendo's kind of doing the same thing people don't know this game comes out tomorrow and i do fear a bit. It will kinda just pass people by especially when there's no searching tolls when you the game up there aren't any pre made games in that apart from the stuff that you may south through the orioles right so if you just wanna play games. You're kinda you have to go out of your way to find codes. So is that going to have legs If there's not enough of a social element. I have my doubts. It's the fun experiment. But ultimately maybe game bilgoraj will be forgotten. A little bit though. It's so good kids. Every kid should be playing. Everyone who has any interest in making games should be playing this. You'll figure things out when you look at actual code. I wish it did a little more telling you like. Oh this is a conditional statement or this is a comp- if then statement but you can kind of figure that out if you were to actually start writing like python or c plus like. Oh i've done this sort of comparison in game the garage. And now i know how to do. It's just all learning the syntax of a language. But you're learning the concepts these folks don't let this one with her by thirty bucks. Preorder link okay. Let's do some quick hit news. There were a smattering of nintendo. Switch related news on top of what we were just discussing this one. The first one this one's for you ribe cake as slider build bear repco. There's a case liner build a bear. Now that's the news. Well we're so excited yesterday okay. So here's here's the short version of the long story is that like What like a month ago a month and a half ago. They came out with and isabel. And a tom nook build a bear and it was a huge thing and the preorder line was absurd and i sat next. I wanted to get an isabelle. A little sister loves her. And i sat. I sat in a line for four hours with the tab open. Only to be told which would like i was there thirty minutes before it opened the randomized. Everybody which i guess is the way to keep us from snapping them all up right away but on the line for four hours and they got kicked out and i wasn't able to get one later was able to get one. Fortunately i thought they came out with case slider today. And i remember everyone being upset when it was just as tom nook and not a bunch of other characters including kk sliders so now they have k- slider and i don't remember when these went live today. But i assume earlier today. I literally just opened up and i was immediately able to get so if you wanted any of these animal crossing buildings you can just get them. I think now instead of having to sit in a line for four hundred anymore you blew. Everybody knows now. I'll well that's true but it's a little guitar. You can have him when you squeeze them. You can either play the animal crossing theme song or he can play disco which is not the best case song but it's still pretty good the best one on probably bubblegum aching. I think but i also really liked kk condor for sound like jazz so someone that's always from ireland because i have a very classy island and animal win. It's beautiful. yes they have. They now have k slider. they also still have. Tom nook nugget isabelle both spring and winter outfits and apparently you can also buy like a little onesie that fits on most militaires that has like little faces of the animal crossing characters on it and this is very cute. They had little cul wristy. I don't know what that means does. I don't know where it goes. But one of them shaped like little animal crossing present and the other one shaped like a bell bag and they've got little elastic thing. It looks like a backpack. Maybe i can't figure out what's going on there but there's a bunch of crossing stuff it's very cute and i'm really glad tiki slider in a perfect world. We would have built bears of every animal crossing character ever but that is obviously not going to happen. So we'll take layer. He's good he's good dog. Cross play is coming over watch on the nintendo switch. We called it when it went over. Watch came out on the switch. I believe in two thousand nineteen or thereabouts. We call it a lesson. Optimal way to experience over watching switch runs quite a bit editor now but competitive is dead. Do we think that cross play on. Overwatch can help the competitive community on nintendo switch or is it always just kind of going to be. These also ran skew for that game. It's the apex on switch. All right apex came out on switched in less than i mean it was like they're both. It's it's amazing that they were able to put it on the switch. Both of those games but like four came out and switching is quite popular on different night. It's a cartoon game. You can drive a cyber truck with crato over a skop concert or something. I don't. I don't actually i probably sounds i know it is. It's all everything i said is true for me to. Hey i not huge deal. I just thought for me. There's always going to be like. I don't really play over watching mara played for like the first year I'm sure there is a small group of very enthusiastic people who play overwatch on switch. It's probably very small. But i'm sure they exist. This will probably make their experience better because now they're not just going to be stuck in matchmaking law lobby with the same people over over so i i hope they have a better time as a result of this. Do i think this is going. I mean what's going to save over watch for anybody who's going to be over to. Which is a million a million miles away and one thing switch. Those two is as gyro. That's kinda a separate separate from the other platforms when you have when it's done. Well gyro can be a really great input for shooters so potentially this could push people to play more switch. If there's going to be a larger community to play with. I mean it. I guess it could also throw the balancing cross bay though because if you're playing against standard stick layers while you can have full motion. Is that going to change. How worm how the balances. Everyone perhaps mostly when i think of switchboards i think i just find it really interesting. The ones said managed to stick and ill significant like for night like minecraft in that kind of thing in the one sat. Just become complete afterthoughts. And i'm just wondering what's the magic coca me that makes a game that gets boarded onto switch ultimately work i think it has to be fortnight chug compassionate or has to be built for it. You know what tim built purposely for the nintendo. I think this is going to get me in trouble. I think there's this kind of an answer here right. And i don't like i don't wanna in any way downplay the competitive communities that exist on the switch because obviously splatoon does have a very cool competitive community in. There are many different kinds of games on the switch that have serious competitive communities the play really really well but i think the lake flavor of competition on the switch tends to be different in the vibe of it tends to be different than four games. That are first and primarily pc games which is what over watches so again like fortnight. Yeah i can be competitive. But it's also fee and weird and you can just play it very casually overwatch. You can play casually but this many years into its life cycle. You're not playing watch casually if you're playing right and so i think the the flavor of community in the facts that it's less of a title that you can just jump into be goofy with your friends on for fun this many years out. I think that's probably. I don't know what the secret sauce is. Their cat but whenever overwatch has is not the secret sauce over won't schwab's well beyond switch. I feel like some other games. Just don't have the same compromises. Like deeply three was final. Switch switch gandalf there two or more to you all right two more items before we move onto what we've been playing. I i want to call out an indepth interview that was published over. Holly gone with great ace attorneys localization director where they talked about the monumental task of localize game rate as attorney very excited to be having that unintended switch. It's been a long journey. It originally came out in twenty fifteen. I believe unintended thirty. S and so does a great great interview and which we learned quite a bit about just how hard it is to hake the very cloak language that was being used from japanese for the most part in trying to turn that into english while also making the puzzles able to be solved. And rabbi clapping. So i know that you're like super excited. I love as attorney. I'm excited for this one. Because i feel like i have not been able to keep up with ace attorney. I got into it late. I didn't start playing as attorney until i don't remember what it was put. It was the original first. The first three as attorney games were reported to. I think one the three d. s. probably or something and i've lost them then and i play. I played them. I love them but it was a lot. There's a lot of as attorney games and there. I don't want to just play the entire series all at once. So i haven't gotten back into it since then because there hasn't really been anything new. That's by and so this coming in being like a current game that i can jump right into his very exciting. The localization interview mentioned in is very very good. And i think it's especially impressive. What they done with these attorney games. Because they're so funny they're very funny and humor is so hard to translate and that interview has has some of that in there too. That i think is really interesting. And in our. I'm getting old now. Category then sell the hd tech demo we you. It's ten years old now. At nasa ten years ago for zelda. I think about that. Janke born on link fighter. Yeah they can't be the we. You played that one at three. And i remember it being super cool very stylish. It had a certain style to it. That i think was alternately carried over into breath of the wild so much like the space world demo from one thousand nine hundred nine or whatever or two thousand it is an interesting artifacts and sell the history and that was a real time right. You can move the camera and change the time of day i i. I just remember you finding like spider something like that. That was my remember. The gamepad had like a giant which would change it from day to night. And like no we you game. Look thank good though so on the system. Zelda tech demo really sold a lotta people on the way you and be like. Yeah i'm into it. Like i remember thinking okay if nintendo for anything like this out on the way you this will be great. And they eventually did. It was called breath a wild and it came out on the nintendo switch. All right. let's talk about what we have been playing. Rab you go first. You got a couple of things on this list. So i've been playing cross code. Which is a game. That came out last year. I believe on multiple platforms including the switch. It is a top down. It takes place. The setting of the game isn't mmorpg's but it is not itself an animal rpg you. Are you play his this avatar. Who doesn't who does not have a person behind her like she's in a memo. She's this character and she's conscious. It's very dot hack if you're watching the dot as in this it's very dot hack. But she's she's trying to recover memory by playing through this. Nfl and yet she has like a guy guiding her but he's not the guy who's playing her. She's herself and i. It's a very long game. I hear so. I'm not super far but so far it is like playing a single player. M oh it's very cool. It's top down very action. Combat that you have ranged and melee combos that you can do and you get like this really big skill tree and you start the further. You play you start going to these temples. Unlocking elements and elements. Change up. How you play like right now. I can switch fire and ice and enemies have weaknesses. And it's it's very cool. And i think i think the thing that has captured aside from the fact that it's very beautiful. It's or just sprite work it. It takes me back mentally to the days. When i played maple story i loved playing mabel story and it despite the fact that it will story is like two d platform as sort of mo stuff. The vibe of this game is very maple story in kind of the areas in sort of seeing characters to sitting around in spots and being able to talk to them and they did a really good job of making a single player game feel like i'm. I'm not sure i'm gonna finish it. 'cause it's is very long at. It's getting a hard in a way that i'm not sure i wanna push past but i like it. It's really clever. The writings good. The music is good. It's beautiful and i'm very impressed by it. I feel like it flew to the radar last year. And i wish more people would take look at cross-code indie gems to come out on the nintendo switch. Last year john euro special guests would. Have you been playing. So recently i picked up the guide and mazda collection and i am in two minds about the some selves so inch garden. Sigma one is great. It's it's basically a flawless game is an xbox game at the switch should be fine and it is fine. It's my favorite into guidance. I'm happy that lay so. Wow but two in three which. I'm not sure upsets my favorite games but two in three have law frame. Ms allusion problems. Those one point in to where It was just a a big mac. Missile picks let's hand-held mired and must have gone as low as like three twenty eight This three sixty game. So that's the snow is expecting and i've never liked three months but three has very similar problems. So if you just one plane into garden one on switch. I think this is a great way to do side. Two and three. They had problems. I wasn't expecting them to have an interest. Got two and three weren't very good to begin with so if it's true. I mean ninja guide in on the xbox was an all time classic action game nut. I think has been forgotten a little bit. But in its day was as big of a franchise as you could possibly get. And then it kind of went downhill over time. So but just haven't opportunity to play the original nine ninety nine in his great. I think yeah okay. But the fossils definitely found a way the best played on series xs. Well got and black and it holds it remotely. Welcome passing full k. In this is no dislike seven hundred ten atp but yeah it's just a great waste. Play the first game simply i think vita i've had some sigma well but this is more accessible and said. Are you playing anything. Besides game build a garage. No i have not only builder garage deadline. I was supposed to play another game. But then i got a game builder garage coat and i was like well. I'm doing this now and thankfully. I enjoyed it for as probably what i'm going to be playing or while playing not be making stupid games like infamous games an endless amount of do. That's i mean you think about your right for thirty dollars you get infinite games. You can't beat that value anywhere else. It is time to start wrapping up before we do that. Let's do a quick question block. This one is from devon by. What is going to be the metro. Dania explanation for why link has lost all his heart and or stamina containers from breath of the wild in wrath of the wild to. I'm very curious to know this one. Because as we all know in metro they always come up with some reason for sama's to lose all of their powers usually. It's an enemy coming in like shooting there in her suit short circuits and now it's time to go in or i think there was one game where her items were actually deactivated on purpose and she had to earn authorization to get them loves. The liberals favorite so link is going to have to get permission from zelda to be able to start again. I do have an answer for this. Actually in the trailer link has the master sword so clearly he's built up from the game and they sent him already and breath of the wild one the died into the shrine of resurrection and we spent like three hundred dollars with this guy. Can we just do that again. Of rather they done. This is clearly already the same guy from the game. He's got the master saudis equipped so instead of link. I'd rather just play zelda. No needs to resettling leaving the shadows. Just play zelda. I fully agree with that. I love that. I wish that would happen. I also i remember a time. When breath of the wild was being shown at whatever he three that was and we all got our landlords and everyone was posting on twitter because the image of link that was on the lanyard looked somewhat feminine and so taking their minds thinking legal or words in the wild one of those doing rich and then then obviously did not happen. So i'm not getting my hopes up as much as i would love to play zelda. I think it's more likely than a whatever was the thing in that trailer. That freaky thing down in the cave. Creepy gannon dead. Whatever that was. Let's get like sap his energy or steal his hours or or mess him up in a way. We're over. I mean that's that's the obvious expedition. I nine gonna capture yes. Yeah i think that's exactly what's going to happen or and it's going to be like way more puzzle in dungeon focused than breath of the while. I actually think it's going to be like an open. World game lonzo elaborate lease. I mean what's there to say. I think it won't be. I think it'll be mostly like dungeon and and puzzle focused enshrined focused and be more of a linear experienced instead of like a huge world. I just think that's what it's going to be. I have no reason to think that. I stand by my original prediction that it's going to be a co op game. It takes. How do you follow up breath of the wild and this game broke zona conventions and everything. Can you just do that again. The direction you take because if you just do it again then you sort of disappointing. The problem was if you presses awhile. Let's more broke my favorite thing. Okay i suppose. Speaking from that go ahead. Isn't that the zelda history. Right like they they come up with a game that that breaks conventions and they do like two or three more of that and then they come out with another game brixton convention. Do two or three more of that. Isn't that kind of the trajectory. This as has taken over the you're sorta maybe not to the degree at the wild has but sort of what that's about all the time left.

I didn't say anything particularly the ones the bottom. Yeah not what's what's jeff cork doing these days consulting like maybe this. There's some get on jeff. Cannata show he said he seemed open to it. He seemed open so fair. That jeff jays right there was all we're we'd have to go to the bottom of the barrel keeley.

Just a tip a new parents out there. My mom calls me a lot and no one knows why. And i'm like convinced. The she almost wanted naming japan and this is like heroin getting in there. I don't get what that's about but jep- is my nickname for her so interesting interesting. I was about to ask if your mom was part. Filipino apps jan show is here as well. I that's me a my family used to call me. Oj longest time. And i think i mentioned this and then my one uncle who's kind of a jerk said because you like orange juice so much now because of whatever reasons i want to being Very confusing to be watching the oj. Simpson murder trial as a child though. Yeah 'cause i was like Who is looking for you. They're looking they. Were looking for like three years. We're going to find the real killers. I think You know one of these days and that was my name my whole life until a very specific moment. It stopped being my nickname. Probably a handful of those over the years really danny admire a fresh off the heels of watching but he added watching england. Finally they did us. They beat germany They have restored their national pride. I dunno congratulations to all of england. Bird defeating the germans again for the first. Everything's yeah finally coming home. I didn't i. Didn't i didn't take any of these emails but this week we got. I'm gonna say no fewer than five emails from people whether they were from wales or ireland Just saying fuck england. So beef is where is the beef. It's a real. That's why that's why they call me before brady because just i have very hard. Is one of the new shows coming to john bomb. Yeah right just. I can't olive people know exactly. You'll manifested into creation Yeah you don't need the irish guy talking about. We didn't even make it into the tournament. So who am i to say anything about the performance of any team. And congratulations to take liberty. Sorry full-size a. It is nobody wanting them to ever win any game except for stay this is the cost of imperialism and Exporting their sport to the rest of the world is that nobody ever wanting to win and we probably will take quite a decent mental pleasure in that. So i am the one major cost of imperialism. Is this this this this thing. Yes exactly if national identity. Acosta's is eurovision voting. Right i mean race. Yeah actually that of helps. Because if you're if you're if you're a modern imperial country then you got all those eastern bloc countries all voting for each other you know. They're kind of like wink. Wink hammer sickle. Let's let's you know we're gonna win this one democracy a wink wink and use the rest of us in the lurch show in that respect us in england actually have a lot in common then in terms of our eurovision success in contemporary years and tastic. There were four kids in the middle of my street last night. I think they were trying to play rugby. Doing they were to destroy out shied. I'd like kicking the football at each other and trying to hit each other with it. Halley rugby. you're you're trying to hold onto the ball is i. Don't second i was like is this. Are you inventing a new type of cricket. And then i just like 'cause i've taken up garbage so i didn't want to stop and stare and be like what the fuck are you guys doing. But where would like to be in cricket to it'd be like the replace the ra. Yeah rick yeah yeah yeah. Yeah and did you ever make up sports remember. Those long summers sake sake it sock. Yeah that's a drink. It's like a rice. Well guess not as a kfi sake like soccer hockey where you well. It's coal and it's also lacrosse. Like what no. No because the game can only be played in. Basements in carpeted basements. Got it all players on their knees. And it's yeah and you know you basically have a goalie with a stick. Has a goal stick but everyone else can either kick or slap the ball. Wanna give sticks to everybody because then you just have like a total slash fest on your hands and then you've got a croaking thing wall and yeah i mean. Believe me there are plenty of holes in in that we gas sheet rock but sake you know that's i grew up on it with turn me into the person i am today. Got hard on sock. Yeah that's yeah. I've learned so much. Yeah well that's the you know. Got my number hanging in the Rafters there you know the soccer hall of basement hall. Concussion protocol sake. I'm sure yeah absolutely. Sorta like you all right. Come on back kind of a full full-contact on the knees there. The yeah because owners. Because when you're when you're like fourteen and fifteen your knees can just take. That thrashing doesn't matter if i try to do this now. I feel like i would bleed almost instantaneously these or mines. Life's like your knees elbows. I watched my kid to he does. He doesn't know he's doing it. He does it but he's his knees. You know he he. They're poor haven't roughened up just yet. They'll get their he'll get there. Wow that's amazing sake. Sake is so ingrained in your dna your household or your son has learned us without even having to be taught like most this. Yeah yeah just the dna. It's dina's memory chain. I'm looking in the chat. Everyone's like i have played this game before though amount and the goal is not a real goal you have to use some sort of table that exists in the house with four legs. And then you cushion off the sides to give you the entrapped. Sorta goal to my house growing up. It was an old like miniature. Billiards table is the perfect south. Second baseball field. Hence the homecourt advantage depending on where you're playing. The tiny pool table evolved over the years like we would add rules. Where like if you shot the ball beyond a certain area that was taped off. You got two goals instead of one. The golden urn goals backed by like hitting targets. It's a great game you know one day. We'll we'll do the quick run you know at the well written out and very Well archived rules of the game. I would have thought that you would have gone to more of a like a tipped over laundry basket as goal thing. Oh no no. You need more of that action. Yeah i see. Yeah yeah yeah. More action action action And that's We are in the process of bringing some action to dia palm dot com and We are here to talk about and announce first couple of shows as you might have surmised one of them is coming from jeff grubb. Yes hell yeah hell. Yeah i didn't just seek on the show for for no reason. I'm gonna do grub snacks. i think is what we're gonna call this thing so sure that's why not. Yeah showing the logo can i. You want people to see that me too. I think we could settle. This can settle this him and ask hey is cool. I guess we could still do that. But listen i it's grub snacks. It's going to be kind of a new show where i talk to the audience. I'll come with some some. Try to bring some news each week or at least talk about the topic and i'm very passionate about explaining why stuff is happening and why these companies make decisions that they make saul try to come at it from that angle and then we'll take questions that people has seemed to have a lot of questions about what is happening. What's coming next. People seem to prefer over actually playing video games. Sometimes listen to my shame anybody is gonna make a show so i'm okay with it. Yeah we're gonna start this thursday. And i hope people tune in i think the first episode is going to be free right. It's going to be open for everybody but it'll be on. Yeah john bob dot com slash chat. Is that the best place on the same page. People are watching this right here. This will be a live show Yeah news has been. I i you know obviously over the years i think like news about games in how it gets out there and and how people talk about it has evolved I just. I'm thinking like back in the day. Like the preko days. It was like very much like okay. This is a company handing you press release and that's the news And when you bound stuff out you it was a news team contacting the company and being like tell me about more about this and parlaying that into some kind of exclusive or something like that whereas now between social media and everything like it feels like much more wild and wooly world you have y- you have found your name popping up in a lot of different news stories over the last year or so. Before a dead space reboot or A lot of star field stuff over the past couple of months here How how how do these things work these days. I mean i feel like i roughly know But like not asking. Hey who are your sources or anything like that. But i am. You know like the. There's been just a lot of different variants of the like rumor. Mill stops on the internet over the years and and nowadays it seems like the switch pro. Things probably a really good example. Recently where you had a lot of people that had like some cachet being. I am a leaker. I leak things. And i do this. And i'm accurate with the nintendo news. Everyone seemed very certain about these. Switch pro news getting announced ahead of three. And all this other stuff What does that landscape looked like. And and how does that stuff happen. Yeah i think there was that period between like what you described. In the early days i grew up reading like quarter manny. Gm or whatever and so there was always like this like this thirst for for rumors and leaks and stuff like that. But i think for a big period there. It was like the friend zone. Where where people would he stuff wouldn't be able to talk about it. And i think what's happened for me. Is you know. i'm in a situation where the people i've talked to understand that i want to able to report the stuff out there and get it out there for people to to hear it and you know if that's okay with you. We'll do that if it's not. Okay just let me know. But yeah i think the the weird thing that's happened is i think a lot of people got an idea in their head about what Gaming news should specifically be and. I think it's happened. 'cause mostly because jason trier's made it seem like hey. We're going to tell stories about what's happening to developers. And i thought that's what it was too for very long time like that's what i should be trying to do. But it's actually people might not know this very hard to compete with jason schreier on those stories and so i tried to step back and look at it and say is there another audience. I could be speaking to and it turns out there is a big thirsty audience for just speak to us about what's going to happen next and even if it's just in vague terms about win we're going to hear about these things people really appreciate that. And that's actually the thing that really kind of think propelled me is i was. I was just providing a simple counter with some leaked dates for some events and people appreciated that. And i think the difference was really realizing that when i'm when i'm writing or when i'm speaking to an audience on a podcast that i am talking to. I'm writing for the readers. And i'm not writing for the developers and that's been the that line has been difficult because the developers and publishers got used to a certain relationship where they could expect us to sit on a lot of this stuff. And that's you know. And i don't necessarily always want to spoil everything like the dead space thing. I was very much trying to talk around that. We didn't even say the name. It was so weird that that in that game name was trending that we can after we mentioned it on the podcast. But at a certain point once it's out there in everybody's talking about it and everyone seems to know like you know you mentioned last week. The exact thing. Same thing that i heard it's a reboot it's a reboot that's going to be kind of along the lines of i think people are gonna see it and they'll be like oh. They're kind of doing the able to remake thing. That's what i expect people to say when they see this thing and so when it comes to like actually convened this information to people it is trying to respect that there are people who are working hard to provide a fun experience to to win. These games do get announced and not necessarily trying to sweep the legs out from under them every single time But also recognizing that that's not my audience keeping the developers and publishers. Happy is not my responsibility. I am speaking to a different audience. And it's okay to prioritize them and also. I think we with microsoft that had three that these companies are very good at executing even when people seem to know their entire lineup. We mostly knew exactly what they were going to talk about. Three and yet they still impress of the execution and so they could still nail that side of it and and couldn't just because people know about that space doesn't mean that's not going to be a very exciting moment when that happens and so it really. It's just taking all those things into consideration trying to make sure that people are also kind of having a good time. That's one thing that. I've realized that people also appreciates like video games. We can kind of make it fun. We can kind of focus on the fun side of stuff and there's plenty of room for different kind of reporting. I think there's more room for the supporting right now than ever. And it is. Weird to get lumped in with the lakers Where it's like jeff. Grubb is a leak. Or the leaker. Jeff frequent leaker. I think you kind of with with some of those folks sometimes. But i mean you quarter your day. Job is literally in the news like yes stuff. So yeah it's like to be in there. And kind of be lumped in with everyone else there and kinda not have people really understand what the job is but again that's not their responsibility to understand my job. That's on me and really trying to walk those lines and make sure the make sure it's also kind of just feels like i'm doing. I'm putting out the stories out there that will either help people understand the industry or will Kind of explain like with the dead space thing. There's multiple sides that like you know. Why are they going back to dead space. Why not mir's edge. Well years edge they did a sequel and they felt really burned by because people kept saying. Hey we really want this game and people didn't buy it enough and really kind. That's one of the big reasons. They backed off of single player games. Just because that game and so there's a story there. There's a reason why these companies are making these decisions wine now. Are they going back to dead space. And i think looked at capcom seeing them have a lot of success and same by. Are we missing out on that. So it's not always just about spoiling things. It's it's really trying to explain what's happening in the industry and i Yeah i i just find it fun absolutely. Yeah i think that's important. I think that's that's something we we've tried to do over the years. Try to give people a somewhat deeper understanding and you have people that will listen to it and understand that and you have people who will not and and at some point. I let go of like okay. You can't hold everyone's hand all the time. Some people are just going to get mad no matter what and be like. Oh you're saying this tobacco you're trying to bury the playstation somehow with us on the star field thing where it was like. It's not even the playstation like to explain the reasoning behind. That microsoft definitely considered a lot of different options. People say they made the they spent some point. Five billion dollars definitely gonna make this stuff exclusive. And they absolutely considered they sent. They have thousands of employees. They have people that were like. Hey can you go look at. What would happen if we made this. Release these game on playstation as opposed to keep them all exclusive what they ran all the numbers they looked at it and they said hey. It's going to be worth the money. If we keep this exclusive because of what it will do for game pass just the stuff that makes sense but microsoft absolutely consider that stuff and you try to explain that side of it and people only hear the one thing. It's not coming to police station. But there are people that want hear the why and they show up and they show consistently like when i'm doing my work and so just running for them and so far it's going good goal. What we will be bringing chunk of that two giant bomb premium members Every thursday on thursdays here and i am excited. I'll i'll be in that chat going like how come you. Why do you hate. How come why do you hate video. Games where star field liars. Why don't you leak screenshots of star field. I know you have it all that stuff. Yeah yeah that's that's how we're going to ask me about carnivals and it'd be happy together we'll build up us. Yeah definitely. I want microsoft running the numbers. On what a car nov reboot could having to acquire it from g mode would own it now and like figuring out like okay. How do we. How do we make car verses. Mr do sort of thing to the real world. Yeah i mean they talking about like. I think it was just this last week. They're like we wanna bring back killer. Instinct is just waiting for the right time. I'm like well. Just start with guest characters. I mean go. Get a car and go get a mr do done. You're done. you're darn galaxy on it. They made that last. Why they they finished last one. They would daniel dwyer so here. We've got us. I'll second another announcement of new programming. I just want to say right off the bat. The names of nowhere. Near as good as grubbs sees louise. Young horses are out there on twitter. You know they're upset because we officially don't know who came up with the name is what being boy image On the internet here a which is as good as a lawsuit right. So i think now we're even if since they that's our that they're using right yes he go even yes So daniels talk about it. Sure get into it you. Yeah talking about you and two more. These old photos I heard i just saw an article today. That jean shorts were coming back so these never went away. Why i got rid of most of mine. And she sold it. He's like bitcoin. You sold at the wrong time. Should have been hoarding. Those two more still has the sharks that he was wearing which is impressive. as he's about half the size of is mine has gone through some. he's he's done. The glow up. People were like monica happily. Don't even recognize tomorrow. And i'm like. Oh yeah donahue looked like dirtbag you always work so really. They say dirtbags system. I'm editorializing that's what i've done some rain. Yeah i couldn't. I couldn't i couldn't do i. I wanted to do one show. That was like the did a lot of cool like camera and filmed in person and reminded me of like the early days of giant baum where you guys were sort of guerrilla recording and covering weird games and stuff but i also knew i couldn't do that on a weekly basis. Oh i've got to show one that sort of like lower production and it'll be like it'll be three weeks on with that one and then on the fourth week it'll be the other show which is high production and i'm back to the other ones so it's kinda like you know once a month for one of them and three times a month for the basically the one with more his riffing off of the other favorite shows that i love the giant bomb which have been the endurance runs. Its not a classic endurance. Run the title of the show at has that has it in it though. It's we're calling it born to run and it's not a bloodborne playthrough or endurance. Roy i mean john liberally did during quarantine and it would be ridiculous to go back and did it very poorly. I you finished it. Which is the most important thing. And it's not bloodborne solas borne so it's an endurance. Run in the fact that we are going to play you know upwards of five. I guess probably by the time. We're doing this six games myself and two more going through them and i. It's kind of like a spiritual successor to a to address. 'cause it's daily. It's not the sort of like daily grind You guys did on so many of those games. Obviously it's it's sort of like a every week and we're also going to like we're going to strategize it. So the idea is a there are a lot of people who have never played these games and a lot of people who will never like that that ship has sailed for them. So we wanna do is basically do a playthrough. I'm green to a lot of these games. I've only completed bloodborne. And a half demon cells. I've never played dark souls to three or secure. Oh i've done a dark souls remastered whereas toward knows them all. So i'm play. I'm going to try and complete. All of them to more is sitting in the cease. he's basically going to be nudging me in directions and the two of us are sort of explaining the game works and and then each episode will be a truncated version of the full plate won't be raw actually editing them best. Just you know if it takes me twelve times twelve attempts to kill or we won't. How'd you sit through the twelfth attempts. It's gonna be edited down. Just manny the deaths just fall. We're going to keep in as it's more said we're gonna keep in the the the bonds and the debts so plenty of banter and plenty of Of me dyin. So yeah it's a blast and it's an excuse for me and some more. I mean we had a podcast together like thirteen years ago. we did. He used to come over to my apartment in london and we used to play throughs and stuff and we kind of missed each other at gamespot like he was talking about before me and then at different play after me as well in the uk and then here so. I'm just really happy to play with to morgan on the first episode of going up on monday yes sir. Do area really does still have the shirt he does does. I did a little detective work apparently so up at the other one. Yeah if it was your we don't necessarily have to give it all away here but yeah some some details. Let's let's let's hear a little bit about it so the other one is basically show kind of in the no cliff air documentary style kind of like show greatest hits over there where it's kind of an investigation into a game but i'm not going to be picking the games you guys are to be picking the games to each episode. I'm going to focus on one doodo. And then eventually. I'm sure we'll cover you off and we'll have to talk to friends of giant bomb but one of us going to be the focus gershman. You're very graciously. Put your hand for episode one. We're going to focus on. The idea is to focus on a game that you love but never got sort of mainstream attention or love. Chances are the game. I never played. So you're gonna pitch to me at. The stars are going to go away and do the research. We're gonna film the boxes we're going to do like the whole like treatment to us and then at the end i'm going to go interview in person. You and basically like you take all that i've learned about the game and sort of make you justify why this game should have sort of gotten more love or white means a lot to you It's called guilty treasures and The first episode will be up the end of this month. And i you've picked the game. It's a real like question. Marker for me and i did some research for for the first episode. Was like this might be too like this. This might be too old for the footage to be dynamic enough or this might be the trying to picture it. But i was like no this. This is a game that jumps out to me. This is a game. I still probably play once a year. if not more And it's Yeah i don't know it's a it's an offbeat game that i don't necessarily think is an amazing video game but i love it so it's a. Yeah yeah yeah i'm excited. I'm excited talk to someone else who has played it because i never have. Wow okay. that's awesome. That's the most important thing. Is that people that were. I wanted to be like games. People are really excited to talk. Because it's like 'cause the thing is i could easily show where it was like. Tell me about your favorite game or we could go by genre but it's twenty eleven it. Sorry between twenty twenty one on the internet now. Everyone's talked about all the great game. So how are we going to make show. That is a bad leg. Guys love for games. i'd also like kind of games. That don't usually get this type of treatment. So it's gonna be fun to see where people pick. Games are going to be way more idiosyncratic than than others. Guess this one. We're starting off. It is like a real. It's i'm looking forward to the the challenge on this. I think it's going to be like the people back. What is that game. I think for a lot of folks. Yeah it'll be a what and then followed up with y. What so should be fun awesome. Yeah for the waiting chat live now. I am not going to pick the bouncer episode. Show like a show an offshoot of this like make a live broadcast where you put the game in a box and make chat like guess what it is before you actually do the thing. I did just builds tension and people wanna know it so bad that by the time do the show people be so invested. They'll have to wash doesn't matter. Yeah yeah and then it gets revealed on grubs snack yes we can have it like slightly out of focus like a camera would have focused ring. That is out of focus by a lot of slowly tearing themselves apart to figure out what it is. I agree with in the corner of jibe infinite for a week. Just slowly awesome awesome so that stuff coming pretty soon we. We talked a little bit about the how this is gonna roll out so so. Grubbs nags born tehran. Guilty treasures. We're going to have a situation. Where like the first pilot show. The first episode is free for all and then following shows will be premium in the in the series and that'll be accompanied by like a nice little we call it a little highlight trailer each episode. A quick quick hits version taste. Guilty like a snack. Snazzy and we call it like something that you know a little morsel delicious little morsel. And i'll be on youtube on the size or yeah. Yeah like the version the genucel check out what we're doing over here type stuff. So yeah that's happening John premiums on sale right. Now if you're interested in that that's what giant bomb dot com slash upgrade. Wanna you check that out and we got these. These shows coming at you very soon. So i'm looking forward to it. That's exciting cool. I'm also looking forward to talking about video games this week. Three three three june. But we are kind of well. I was gonna. Maybe that doesn't matter. I was gonna say the last week of the quarter right so you do get those releases kind of bunched up. But it's not so much like that anymore. there's definitely some stuff. Mario golf seems like the the biggest game of the week. A handful of you have played at jan you golfing. Are you golfing very very poorly. And it turns out. Even if i mario or anyone at the mario family. I still golf. Very poorly I really like the original. Mario golf games specifically. I think there's one on the gameboy one everyone wants to do. It's like it was wicked. Rpg like it was just awesome and they don't make them like that anymore and that was great And i really liked mario tennis. The one that came on the switch. And i know that like was real real hot for like a good month and then it kind of dipped out and then mario golf is here. And it's a weird approach in how they kind of just throw you into the game like it starts with a real good hype trailer of all the mario family playing golf whacking each other off with golf clubs golf clubs with golf clubs hawaii reigning king shaming all much like the fast franchise only. This is a little bit closer back boy and Unlike how mario tennis kinda like started you softly into learning the mechanics of everything. This kind of just throws you into like. Hey here's like these three loading pages that you can kind of learn how to play golf with and yeah they just kinda three off to the races with like the beginner course. And then a second set of Eighteen holes and i think the two two of the newest additions to this is that there is kind of like a story mode where you play as a me. 'cause me's will never die. Yeah and you know like boroughs kinda like your house mom coach and you're learning your rising up the ranks as a rookie golfer but the second neat addition to this is the multiplayer option. Where you're all kind of golfing at the same time for each individual hole so it's you at the Star starting t t off. The tee box are hard to reach zone. And it's you and three other golfers. Ai or players. And you all just key tee off at the same time and you race over to where your ball lands speed gulch spiegel an each individual character. They have their stats. Like their power hitter they have different stats in terms of their Power hits or their their special ability hits and everyone has stamina meter so you can kind of like to get to the ball. You also have like a dash. They'll take you to some amount of distance before that runs out and from there you just gotta get your ball and then just try and get it into the hole in his little amount of time and strokes. There's not a lot of interacting with the other players other than doing your a special character specific hits and that'll range from like hey. This character blows everyone else's balls out of the way on it. They would they would come into contact with or they mess up The the the area by the whole green. Oh man golf turns out. Yeah it turns out. You're a bowler hat. And so there's the option to do actually play on the different golf courses but then there's also like in arena speed battle gulf where you're not going hole by hole your it's like a whole map and whoever's the first to get to a whole wins appoint and from there there's like another set of holes that pops up that you gotta get into. Wow this getting paid. kohl's all right. Okay yeah okay so people like you know like if you're doing the speed golf stuff. Can i run up on peach and just like kick over or something and in my experience. I haven't been able to you. Can you can draft behind someone while they're dashing and kinda speed boost from there and like the more arena style battle golf. There's a lot more Items popping up so you'll have a bomb and you can hit that and then that would interfere with the other players and then from there. There's also a lot of different variables popping up on like a minute basis. Where all right now. Just there's coins everywhere and then authors ice on the field that's going to mess you up so like what is the way you speak about this game. It seems like they maybe not done the best. It seems like they script not to these screwed. Something up is in connecting. You seem like you're looking for more out of this thing right. I just wanted something more whole arcadia right. It's just something quicker to pick up. And play. And i think the speed golf and the battle golf stuff is like a need idea but for some reason. There's like a weird disconnect once you're actually playing through it Like for instance. Once say you're doing better than your ai. Or your friends when you're doing the speed golf. They'll before a whole and you're doing way too. Well they'll put a timer before you to as a handicap of like okay. You have to wait like fifteen thirty seconds before you can go because you're apparently doing too well and like that you can turn off if you just wanna like. Just keep going and stuff. It just feels like there's something kind of of missing. Yeah i feel. I can tell you. What the core gulf. If you're going to say the same thing. I think the core golfing just isn't not clicking. Like it's like kind of not arcadian. Like mario strikers are it's and it's also not saving enough either. It's i don't think it rated like the best golf games are the ones who are like the actual act of hitting the ball and strategizing and figure out where it's gonna go just feels good like everybody's golf. Dodging golf story is like a very low five version of this but it still managed to do it and also like some you know. Some of the tiger games have that sense urban or semi but the gulf in this game. I'm having more fun doing the bottle thing more than anything else because it's the most removed from actually paying off because i don't find the golfing in this game just doesn't snap for me. The way other games have the golfing is is good enough for me. It's not as good as like pga tour. Obviously but the problem is i think nintendo saw that mario party super mario party sold fifteen million copies. And they're like we have to make a mario golf game for that audience and not for the weird perverts who are still talking about that rpg. From the cam law game twenty years ago that we haven't put another game sense won't not talking about that we. They're not making this game for the audience that we're in right now. They're making people. By mario party and keep buying it when they they buy switch. They made this kind of like a party party game. Like you're supposed to sit down with friends and family in front of a couch and play these battle modes and play the speed golf split screen right in front of you on the tv. That's i think that's how they ambition. Most people are going to play this and so that means they leave out stuff like oh satisfying campaign. It really is like an extended total. I been more okay with it. Because i you know i got this game after the after the reviews and people said oh. It's really talkie. So i just i don't talk to anybody in the in the in the campaign. I just go right to the missions. And i think it's it's okay it's serviceable but it's definitely a disappointment. If what you're looking for is something more substantial and and yeah. I think once you kind of the gulf did click with me a little bit. Just because i. I really like shaping my shots but a part of that is going through the campaign and like doing the challenges for each different little thing that they put in there and that's made it a little bit more satisfying but you kind of like forcing you to go through that to unlock that stuff for your me and like skipping the ball across the water which is something you do in the campaign which i don't know if there's ever an instance where you would do that in like the the versus modes that stuff is is cool but i also have just feels like. Maybe they haven't made this very congruent experience. Where like everything in the coalesce into way where it feels like. It's all culminating in your putting all these skulls together. It just feels like a game. You're supposed to sit down and play with friends if you're not doing that either in person or online This is probably not the mario golf game for you And a weird thing. you know. this isn't the first game. I mean there's one hundred foot robot golf kinda. Did that like active like hey. We're fighting to the whole gulf question. Mark remember good old gulf question mark where your plans like a teacup generic for work groups yet. One group similar a similar there too. Where kind of like. Hey what if we put everybody on. The course i just it. It seems like there's a situation where it's like you if you're going to have that needs to be more than just a race. You kind of need more active like ways to mess with other players. You can't close people when you do. If you're speeding ahead. You can run into people and then they they follow the side and they get their eye. Frames are a little bit while they lose some energy. So there's some there's some interaction there it is like i get why jan hasn't been able to do it because if like a golf course. It's huge people are going all different directions and sometimes the holes are literally in different directions. So you can let go this way and someone go in the opposite direction and you're not even running next to each other anymore. Then it's like. Did they really think through the actions there. And then i guess you can use your special shot like borio has a A lightning bolt shot. And basically if you just shoot it up and it's going to go the exactly that you said and it's gonna go right down in any balls in. The area of effect are going to get electrocuted. And i don't know. Because i was never hit by warriors. I don't know exactly what this does. But i think anybody that's been like electrocuted adds stroke to their shot or whatever and like behaves weirdly a but then you have to make sure you time it right. They have to be in the area of effect. If you don't do that it's it's not gonna work. This lead to one instance for me though where i was playing online with some friends but we weren't on voice but we got to a par three. So everyone's gotta hit it to the same spot and i had my shot and my friend didn't and he was ahead of me and he just kept waiting because he knew as soon as he hit the ball. I was going to do it so we were standing off forever and it was like it was like two minutes before one of us started going but yeah that's interesting but it's not happening frequently enough where you feel like this game where you are just always gonna be messing with your friends a lot of strategy stuff at least because i i've so bad playing with friends online that way i feel like the doesn't really know what to do to stop the battle mode. It's so easy to win it if you just always go where they aren't because they always end up going to the same sort of obvious. Jose you're just like okay i. I'm going to go to this one over here and then just like did you know once. At least that's been the strategy that's worked up until this point so yeah it does feel. I hear what you're saying that does feel like the type of gate were. It's probably a very different experience if you're playing with friends and that's probably the williams meant to be played. I limit holes aside. I feel like what we're not talking about and again like i don't want to just continue to bang the the same back lar- drum over and over again but my friends is not the perfect. Sport nintendo has yet to make a mario version of right under our collective knows is. I'm sorry my friends but where the fuck is mareo hockey. Think about it just like it doesn't take a lot to think about how gray power ups and all the intendo sport fuck ary they do in these games would work so well with a really you know almost. Nhl hits a five version of a arcade hockey game. I do item at the you. You're right you're right sake. See the light of day. I think hockey probably so. I'm just guessing here. But when i think about nintendo and the reason nintendo makes nintendo like decisions. I think the contact in hockey is often perceived as too violent more. Or that type of thing. Because when i think about a great arcade hockey game. I'm thinking about all the way back to you. Know and shell ninety three on the genesis. I'm thinking about sure. Nhl hits. i'm thinking about that gretzky. Game that launched on the sixty four and then the the hits franchise after that that midway got into like nhl rock the rink for the ps. One elephant god. Oh my god rink rock randolph off. I knew that i played that the gamespot staff was forced to go on an editorial sabbatical out to pollens. Some ski place. People are out skiing. And then i was reviewing nhl rock. The rink. and. I was like i'm just going to stay inside and not go break both my legs and play rock the rink instead. And then i think andrew park brought his neo geo we played mark of the wolves as well but Anyway i mean we talk about. Violence is like the nintendo characters in like those types of power ups. I think you you would end up in such a situation where you'd have to do such indirect violence like mario kart style. Violence has just like dropped. A thing on the ice. And you've over or or there was a smoke cloud or whatever but like. I don't wanna do that. I want to be fucking. Yeah i want to take the mario archetypes. You've got the s ice hockey archetypes. You've got regular ass mario. You've got skinny luigi. You've got thick asks borough right there on goal and and just have them slam into each other as hard as they can for as long as it sounds real good though. It sounds like a lot of fun they should. They should just do it. And just you know they could be all dumb and add the characters that they want to add that. Everyone's like martha or whatever league. Do that all these things that they want to do. More during mario hockey right every direct is another mariel hockey character. Yeah but i'm i think we should have. Fire emblem lock at that stage. Is it big in japan. Like as i feel like golf baseball even this team. I'm pretty team. It's it's not that big national team we've got like yes you know. Yeah yeah okay. I can't tell you there sorry back going to happen. I can't i should do it. You know i agree. I should do it. They've done hockey in things before they love. Ice ice shows up everywhere. Yeah damn ice level like make a goddamn ice game golf right. I mean come on. Yeah well. I really like knockout city. They should just do dodgeball. Sure that'd be real violent problem again. That's like the most violent. Yeah well i mean you throw in a shell at someone. Making does not seem as forgiving as a dodgeball. But that dev had a relationship with nintendo for that for the mario kart. Ar thing like you know there's probably some version of the world where that was exactly what that was pitcher in meyer baseball games or like can you get the benches to now and in those games. Were to rub some material on your hat near exactly. Get a little bit of this scenario and go off. They'll negro on it. Not heart came to the switch speaking of switched video games. tony hawkes. Pro skater one plus two f. Grab you played a little bit of that. I understand the load times are. Yeah something of a nightmare. Yeah so the initial loads on levels are fine and acceptable. The issue is the same issue. That tony hawkes pro skater. Five had which is that we oppress the retry button. Because that's something you do often tony okay. At least that's how i play it. I restart a lot. Because i want to get the perfect line or whatever and it's five to eight seconds and that is i think the people who aren't tony hawk fans here that and they're like what are you complaining about. It's just eight seconds. That's nothing in a tony hawk. Game it is. I think i played the game. Originally on nintendo sixty four and dreamcast. That didn't play the playstation one version a lot but my understanding is even the playstation versions had pretty much instant reload. Yeah so if we do for yeah yeah it's just like do that and restart and getting back into it like the frustration of like. I can't believe i fucked that up. I got to restart right now and then you're back in it before you have time to sit and go like i'm gonna go do something else. It's important you going. Definitely the it's part i mean. Now go ahead. i'm just gonna say. I wonder like what that tells someone who's smart enough to sniff out like the logistics of like making a game like the. I think we're all in agreement that that is pretty high up on the list of crucial ass shit when it comes to tony hawk game. Is this just an indictment of like. We just can't fuck do it on this. It's actually it's probably a thing of like the overall player base for that game players are actually going to know that that was a key thing and those original games and like and the trade off. Okay are you going to reduce the visual fidelity of that game such that it maybe can sit in memory more and reload faster or you going to have pretty screenshots to show people so that they go buy it on switch like it's probably right and they made other sacrifice you can't you can't hold down the share button to get like thirty second video clips. That's for this game. Seems like they are maximizing their resources to keep the heat the levels loaded and unloaded in and looking the way they do which is okay. It looks it looks fine. The good news is that it plays exactly like you want. It is thirty frames per second. This hunch have that they are doing the thing that trials did when it went to switch and that is sure. The game is updating visually. At thirty hurts. But i think the controls are updating sixty hertz. And that's the way it feels. That's the only way. I would be able to explain why it feels so smooth when i play it because they'd presponse exactly how i'd want to tony hawk game to respond. And you know if. I have to choose between not having tony hawk on the go and having tony hawk with with reload. That are unacceptable. I'll take it. And i'll play it this way and i have been playing. I've been playing it a lot. Like kind of. It's like the game that like when i have a little bit of time. I'm playing that especially when i'm like. Okay that mario gulf round was frustrating to go. Play this tony hawk. Game and i've already played it all through all the way through and on one of the console the xbox so it's still solid in. It's exactly what you want if you're tony hawk fan except for those reload times and if that's like enough to be like oh that's too much i'll just go back and keep playing on the system. I already bought it for once. Said a double dipping. Yeah just do that. You don't have to you. Don't have to double dip here Definitely not overplay. Tony could switch your system and you could probably check it out and be fine. I think but if you want if you want portable tony hawk. I mean you could always play tony hawk. One on the n gage You could always play the tony hawk to On the tap wave zodiac. That's great of the isometric. They did advert. It's the you know the isometric. Gpa tony hawk. That is very good. Hi rez version of that. For the tap waves zodiac. That actually did the analog stick on think sucks so much pain. The curious visuals. What are they doing these days. They should get another one of those. Yeah they should make another one of tony hawkes. This guy is going places. he's dropping nine hundred these dropping. Nfc's loves tony hawk dropping of tease me. Nf nfc is like nine hundred or some shit. Yes i think it was longtime he was gonna do a specific trick and the god damn in it There's no one got tony. Don't do it man before it was too late. Yeah yeah see. what else is going on dark alliance. We talked a little bit about dark alliance last week. Dungeons and dragons dark alliance the latest in the long line of beloved dark alliance games I ended up. Plan some more of this. Now that it's out. I played some of it. Pre-release and in the reviews hit and my feeling was like what i played was not great but maybe not worthy of this level of ir and then i spent a couple more hours with it and tried playing online and its arable is really i am. I was surprised by those last two hours with it in terms of getting into the next act of the of the campaign and And kind of seeing what the next environment looked like and how the enemies behave and all that other stuff and then getting online with it and realizing oh like this game feels bad and muddy and the controls don't feel right and the timing is very sluggish and all this other stuff and then you play and then the littlest bit of latency completely destroys that game like it wants you to or pretty wide timing windows for stuff like There's a perry if time you're blocks right you'll perry attacks and that's something you need to do to kind of regenerate stamina or your maximum stamina depletes as you do special moves into bring that meter back to its fullest. You need to perry an attack and so it's something that is part of the loop of combat in that game but you throw a bunch of lag into it and you're like oh this is like and like like warping around the screen. I can't you know this is. This is damn near unplayable in this. Obviously session by session. That's going to vary depending on who you're playing with where they are all that other stuff but boy oh boy it soon enough and not much fun at all did roll around with a visit for a little while online. And it's not. I don't feel it is worthy of the dark alliance name. It really makes me sad as someone who liked those games. Well it's rough. Is the multiplayer the same as the solo campaign. It's just a you play. Warmth character of that and in the solo. You still has one and the rest of the mar a i know. There's no way. I so you just play. Okay Yeah so so they they don't fill in the gaps for you and it's kinda like you can only play. You can have two of the same character. It seems like it's kinda like locked in terms of you know you form your already four of named characters and all that sort of stuff. I understand that obviously like those are. These are very famous characters from a very specific Era of dnd lower. And all this other stuff. But like when i come to this type of game i want to make a character like i. I don't care about. I don't even care about drizzle and he's super famous Let alone wolf gar. And these other fuckers there in this thing like it's yeah so that part is is you know some people will will enjoy that part of it more than i did. I guess but it just everything in terms of like as you're unlocking additional moves and leveling up spending your points in all of those stuff like just a lot of different aspects of that game are busted but for me the worst part about it is that when you collect luton level you don't get to use it if to finish the level and go back to chest and then so like you'll you'll pick items. They'll say like rare helmet but it won't give you. It's not in your new inventory. It's just like in a pool. You acquire during this level and you don't get any of it unless you finish the mission so like antonio yeah exactly And so if you quit mid mission you don't get any of that stuff which i'm sure it prevents some exploit. I don't know who knows why they did it but but it creates this situation where you have to go back and then do a boatload of inventory management and then the inventory management. That game is not well-crafted or modern in in a lot of ways either so it just kind of top to bottom. They have not done a good job with it or a some people to find jobs with but like the end product is his severely disappointing. And it's game pass so if you want to go play it for nothing you can. Do you think this reflect on game. Pass in a way Did you find yourself like your emotions changing towards game. Bastion they They hype up a game like dark alliance that it comes out and it stinks board or it's just like another bad game that you just move on from. I think it's hard for me because we just get access to so much stuff right. So but i try to envision it in in terms of like game passes almost doing you a solid because if you were a dark alliance fan you might have gone out and bought that and if you can just play that for four hours and be like man dodged the bullet there like game pass still providing some kind of surface. They're rice like you're going out and doing the business to do the deal. You launched with that on day one. I'm sure they are hoping it's going to turn out good and all this other stuff so i'm not saying they're going out there trying to do deals with bad games to save people money but It in some sick way. It's still works out Been thinking a lot about that aspect of of game pass lately in terms of like the value of so when you have access to all of those games i i saw a couple people on twitter off and on over time to say like boy it sure is easy to play the first three hours of every game game pass and not stick to any of them Do you think that game pass is doing something weird to the perceived value of video games. If you've when you when you buy a game you end up with that investment of like well. I spent this money on this game. And now i'm stuck with it. I should probably play it all the way through Can't get a refund because the nightmare. I mean my knee-jerk gashes yes it's absolutely doing something to the psychology of game ownership one hundred percent like how could it not. Yeah and so we saw. It's the slippery slope argument that people say like oh this is going to encourage developers to only release bad games because they don't get punished as bad And i think we'll have to wait to see if anything like that happens. And i do think that slippery slope argument but i think backwards right. How could it not like we saw the way. Things changed on mobile because people try different business models in a different business models going to make people think differently about the way they acquire and think about their games I i my hunch. Is that it's going to have a like a net positive effect over time where people feel like they can try more new and different stuff and not have to like so greatly. Protect the one genre that they know that they're into because they're have spending sixty to seventy dollars every time But i'm sure they'll be so negative effects that we haven't predicted yet as well but overall probably be positive. Yeah i think. I tend to agree that it will be it will be positive but it. It's just a. It's a very different thing. When microsoft's first party stuff started showing up on their. It definitely changed the conversation about. How do you review these games. When you're you're not really adding to advocate like someone spending sixty dollars on it or not and you end up in that same situation like this is why we didn't review mobile games for the law. I can free iphone day or even in the iphone days. When a game is free you could spend a lot of time reading about it or you could just go check out for ten minutes and see what's up and and it. It kind of changes. The need to write the traditional review or those sorts of games. And it's you know that that sort of stuff is happening with with these game pass games and no. Crackdown three for me. It was like the first big one of those where it was like. I was playing it. And i was like. I'm having a bad time. This isn't this is not. This is not the crackdown sequel. I want in any way shape or form. Multiplayer is also very disappointing. When you compare it to what they promised about their clouds blah blah blah blah. But then at the end of it. You're like well. What's my recommendation. Sign for game pass. You should probably have and then and then play for hours of it if you like it. Play some more. But it's it's fine that it's bad. It's fine that it's not great because you to pay another sixty bucks for it and yes does have so many solid two great games on it Kind of rotating through or games that have become fixtures because their first party. Like whatever you should get you get it like long-term yeah. It's like long term. Do you do have a lot of people who played like like me. Do that played like the first ninety minutes of river city girls and said this is really cool and then never touched it again. It feels so platform specific though in this instance is not like a music industry thing or something where we suddenly devalue the art form. Because it's become you know massive streaming libraries like this is very much a microsoft thing and playstation of the in a way this is alive playstation d lene even further into the sort of we are creating these curated experiences that are only available on this console. And the you know. They're these big blockbuster temple games at our command. Every six months you can only play them here an eye in which is probably a good thing in some way business wise for both of them because it allows them to occupy a unique space within the industry in a way that hardware wise. They just simply don't anymore. So you know to me. It feels like a very microsoft strategy. It's in its own sort of walled garden there but it's already changing the way we're talking about games definitely and it becomes like a. I think game pass long-term it becomes an issue of curation like what what deals do they do. And why do they do them. Like i as someone. Who just told you that. I think dark is terrible game. I think it's great. That is on gay pat because the curation should lean towards more bad games as opposed to trying to like have a really high bar. Just put a lot of stuff on there and think about it. But that curation shouldn't be overburdening like to the point where i don't even about a game because it's not a game pass anymore and then they don't put a game in there because they think it's bad. I think it's okay. Let me decide. It's bad i'm not gonna hold it against you. I don't think yeah and yeah exactly. I think if they if they hit a bad run where all the games. They're promoting as like their big day. One releases are all right rotten. Eventually that probably has some kind of knock on effect. But i don't think they've gotten there yet. And i think the quality of the first party stuff has been high enough that i think that that and you know they. They still have enough goodwill on their biggest franchises there that i think that that carries it kind no matter what even if you played out writers broken. Delete all your inventory. You're still like well. Okay halo i'll get more. It's an amc signed up to this. But i you know you pl- and you played writers for like four hours or six hours like there was a value there and it's it's sort of a way kind of throwback to getting the demo disc and investing for hours playing a game or something again like shit but games you were never going to buy a first place or or games. You were never going to try. Like i've played more games in other genres that i don't usually play on game pass like a bunch of games. I talked about in the first couple of months when i was on his pockets. Were games that i was like. Oh yeah sean out a world so and maybe what's happening as well as that. We're we're changing the way we think about the value proposition ourselves. Maybe we don't need to play a game for fifteen or four zero one hundred hours. Maybe it's okay to a game. You know twenty percent of the way through for four hours and that was enough in. Yeah i think so. Much of a good point about like subsidizing bad games. I think of it takes two. And what was the game before their way out. We out people kind of lukewarm on it and gave the joseph harris another chance to do the exact same thing with a slightly different style and it takes two has been everyone raves. But i haven't played it but people seem to love and it's like you know the kind of they gave him chance. Let him like. Learn this this way of making a game and sure it didn't it didn't strike everybody's fancy but the second game seems to have done exactly that and it sold really well and it's like almost like like let these developers take take strike but then take a strike and then they come up to the bat next time. Let's let's see what they can do after they've learned some lessons and maybe there is like a lot of value in that and that's something that was not happening without game. Pass like not not really. Yeah yeah the mid like. They did the math on this for sure. Because that's what i keep coming back to is like there. Is this amazing thing about game. Passive eight appearing from a customer point of view. Such an impossible deal to pass up but at the same time as likely highly lucrative on the other side of the fence to like there. Are these two conflicting but sort of historically would perceive to be conflicting ideologies of like. This can't be great and cheap like they. Can you know. I feel like That is kind of the the real you know special sauce in in the in the whole sort of model or are you talking about like sony doing it. The first time like place as now on a smaller scale. Was this a not now. Playstation plus on a smaller scale was this they had that momentum for a very long time like you know it was a thing that had been established. It just kind of. I don't know the gas kind of ran out of the tank a little bit. I guess with with the sort of road map and the strategy was so month as well as feels exactly archive fluid. Yeah definitely definitely well in conclusion. Put down one game pass break. We'll come back more games to get through. And then we'll get into some news about that mental health him right.

It's it's very emotional But also damn it looks good. The they went in. Rtx up a lego game or some Some good looking bricks. Yeah but the game itself. I am not loving. You know. it's basically like a puzzle game where you're kind of moving some legos around environment. Basically you would bring the characters together you kinda like taking one character and moving them over to the other one and to do that. You have a specific bricks that they will jump to and so it's like this domino effect of like your or your picking up the brick behind them and moving it in front of them to make the move. And that's a little clunky and a little bit slower than i wish it was But damn it's a beautiful video game. Danny you play all the way through it. Did you not yet. it's only about ninety minutes long. Yeah i've played about fifty. But i keep having to stop because it keeps getting the like keeps like too much like it's not gonna stay forever. I'm sure but dodds like i. I play dupe blow with my daughter like pretty much on a daily basis and like last week we had a vacation together which was really nice and tonight to come back to work at like does parts of this game where like it's all about the relationship between parent on a child and the parent has to go to work. It's all done in these motifs but it's totally we get tears after seven minutes of this thing that the opened the sort of like an up style. Oh i wasn't expecting this sort of moments that really like got to me but yeah i'm with you. I think i'm mostly buying. Because at a the reason i got it was 'cause the it in the same way that those lego movies looked unbelievable. This looks so fantastic and now the thing. That's keeping me playing. Is i wanna do the story. But i'm doing drips and drabs because literally keeps like i keep on god. I need a break menezes. This is like i know how it's going to end. And like i just don't like there was a part of me that was just like i don't think i wanted you with that right now. Yeah oatley the dad's head just pops off or something. Yeah it's going to be some happy ending. It's now it's a it's a lies telling a life. Yeah it's just it's just awful. The parents anymore. So it was perfectly encapsulated. We started over the weekend and my son. He was getting a little frustrated He's a mouse a lot. So you sort of like luck as the but You know he's looking at me like one of those. I levels where like the kid gets up to like the hiking backpack of the parent and then like the kid gets zone backpack and he just turned and looked at me and he was like me. And i'm like call now and they're probably gonna kill me in this game or do something terrible like we're gonna be separated you and me in this game and it's gonna feel bad and i. It's just amazing gorgeous. I am equally frustrated with a few of the things in the way the game controls. And i just think some of that stuff leaves a little to be desired. But but i the but the fidelity in the whole environment wins me over. More than any of those frustrations so shit i've been on the plane into the storytelling very well done. It's not even they're not many figs so they just create them with lego parts. Create these characters. And i think it makes them more abstract and it enables you to like you. Put yourself into what you're seeing and then when you take like the story back out it's like more effective because of that it's Yeah it's it's really well done. I think that the game gets a little bit more varied slightly different things a little bit further than i was expecting And also i. I did i also have the switch version as well as the pc version in switch version still looks pretty good. It's obviously not the global nation with to make sure the frame rates still go and but it still looks good enough so if you wanna try this out and i think you can use the touchscreen on the switch as well which makes the controlling a little bit easier especially for kids. Yeah yeah i've been. I've been pretty impressed with it. And i agree with story where i'm like. Oh no the dad's going to work and he's doing the same thing over and over and okay all right the skin me. It's my my daughter. Loves to skateboard and scooter. And then there's you know there's a game where it sort of changes the the gameplay veteran. It's the kid on a skateboard. Combine celtics great and then the apparent. I'm calling. I'm calling it a dad. We don't necessarily know it's dad but like the pattern is there and it's the beginning and they're learning this world together than the data's to go to work and then the kid is learning the world on their own figure things out by themselves back. It's like oh okay. Well that's going to happen some days and four and two so yeah. I'm right there with you. Here's how dare they you know. Let me build the ghostbusters car or something. It's me you. I bet you could play this game like you know none of this. It's the same way i feel like talked about. It's to a couple of months ago. Where like for also it was like this is just. This is stephan in areas. That i'm like make me feel vulnerable in a way that you know is difficult but also you could tell me play this game but none of that stuff will yeah may not affect you. Mileage may vary beautiful. Look and i think the animation on some of the levels too with just goes moving Bantam abyss Your your run based whip jump in first person relic stealing spike in indiana. Jones deal I this game is really cool. And i'm not sure if i'm ever going to play it again. I i really like what they're going for. And at the same time. It's i i don't know that i have the i wish the jumping and and the whip stuff you know you're getting additional whips and stuff maybe that right but like when we when back when you played it on friday i totally understand now why you kept falling because i want the whip to be more of like a asked action. I'm gonna whip here and turn around and whip here and just like carry my son and it's not that game it's like a yeah whip once ought to jump and that's yeah you're not lightermen. Yeah exactly you're not spiderman. And i want to be spider common. I mean you know. You'll go by the dual whip of eventually or something like that. But i i like you. The you'll notice you're not actually stealing relics your reclaiming them for the god who they were stolen from. I think they got around that little bit of trouble pretty smartly. i think But it's it's it's it's my of game It's absolutely my jam. I got really into speed running with astro and this is like kind of scratching that same itch. It's not speed running but it is. It's run based. And i'm i'm encouraged to go fast big monster chasing you and And just kind of figuring out these of forget these. These platforming puzzles is really satisfy and then also seeing all the people around you who have failed previously like. That's the cook curious like you're going to be the first person to actually finish this whole thing. And you're playing against the ghost of all the other people who have tried and failed so far in once you beat it when someone beats gets cut off and gets taken out of rotation and that doesn't mean like every run feel super different. It is just procedurally. Generated stuff stuffing and piece together But it's it's it's it's really working for me. It's got its hooks into me. I've been playing it and kind of non stop. And i haven't beaten. the second. Biometrics is what you would call it but like gun pretty pretty deep into that but they put the introduced some new traps. I'm struggling with those. I'm gonna keep going until i get through to the end. I think there's probably like four major areas. Keep at it. Until i do that so now. I'm really digging. So so does that mean. One run covers all four areas or is that there's two kinds you could do. You could do on which stops at the first area where you were were you Reclaim the relic from that first area. And then it sends you back to the beginning and that's a successful run But i think eventually you're going to run out of relics in that first area. Now you gotta start saving on the second second area. And then but i'm going to just keep going and keep going but you can like once you what you make the decision to go to the second area. You just go up the stairs instead of down the stairs. If you have the right key you can open the door and go. Yeah but but i think a full like real run to me feels like do doing four areas basically like spunky so so yeah so. That's what i kind of discovered more after we did it on. Ups where i'd gotten like three or four first level kinda relics and then and you know the you make it a few times around in the game. Sorta says hey pretty cool. You've been doing what you've been doing but maybe like go down the stairs and challenge yourself a little bit. And that's when i was like i was like. Oh shit there's a whole other like of this game where you're in this like you know the first areas kind of green. This area is kinda and that shit's impossible. It's not impossible but that's it is much more challenging because after you collect a good amount of relics in the green areas. You're sort of like. Oh i could get like forty or fifty these things in feel okay but then that sort of thing pops up and you can see the branch in the loading screen of how like. Oh you sidestep that easier relic to get around that i find. That's really really kind of fun. And i do like the the shrine system that have gone on with the perks and and You know strategizing what the right thing to pick up is and you know which ones work better for the way you kind of play the game with extra heart containers and then It the it made things cost thirty percent more but then a semi. I don't remember. It must have been getting a relic but i upgraded that whip and now no longer has the the debate it just gives him the two extra heart containers inside. Been pushing for every time you unlock a whip. Is it just kind of there for you to select pre run there but if if you die with it there is a situation where you might have to spend some resources to get to revitalize unlock it again. But i've always had enough resources to do that. I haven't been in a situation where i haven't had enough to where i've been faced with that decision yet or ahead to like. Choose something else. That i didn't want but imagine as i get better and better whips. Probably likely will it. Seems like these are resources you get based on the bios that you get to so i got a little common. Yeah uncommon treasures. And i think. I've only gone a few from the blue area so if i need something that needs blue and i think i actually have that whip. I just haven't been needing in. It's not the one. I wanna use right now. If i were to lose that one during the run i would have to spend. Go back to that second area and get that stuff to unlock it again. So it isn't there something where if you die with the whip. I think there's some language there this is like. You won't get this back until someone completes the resources. Yeah like resources. That you earned. When someone completes the run they unlock it. And you get sent to you and so that's happened to me once where someone beat that. Now here's your stuff. It makes it feel like a multiplayer game. It really does more when it's definitely not. It's always synchronised. i'm really into. Yeah that's really cool cruelty squad. I feel like. I've heard the name of this game going around for a bit. And for whatever reason just never looked to see what it is and then pre show. I looked at. It seems like it's probably pretty awesome. It's pretty awesome so cruelly squad before people go google. It has overwhelmingly positive ratings on on steam. And i don't necessarily think it's a joke but the games like in on the joke so it is it is like i it looks like goldeneye but if all the textures were replaced by like just random japex from your flight your funny folder whatever and it it it feels like old like you're going through the levels and you're just taking these enemies but there's also like this weird storyline where i'm like the third mission. I got sent after the ceo of a company and wait that the company name. I think i saw that company name in the stock trading mini game. That always have access to so mike. Before i go to kill that ceo. Should i go buy that stock. The head up the people who control the world are like hey this ceo of like a aerospace orbital industries He's not okay with Getting a lot of a lot of lives lost on mission to mars and actually the whole point of our mission to mars is to have a mass human sacrifice event to satiate the heads up of this world and my okay so the the heads up us to replace the seattle. I'm going to buy the stock for this company. Except that the the price is going to go up. So i went in the level and killed those the ceo. And i came back out. They went up like ten percents. I like made some money on. My thing is on the side. And there's a huge stocks or anything and it looks just like a blooberg took bloomberg terminal. There's one of the tabs is just like fish. But i don't recognize any of the names of the actual like commodity like a fish like the first one is f. l. s. h. so we just started playing streaming start calling flesh in my invested a lot in flesh and i actually took a pretty bad beating on my flesh. Investment in didn't lost a lot of money. But i don't know i mean it's a developer called consumer soft products. They know what they're doing. I think you have to really understand here. But i was having a very good time with it might chat with its cacophonous so like there's a lot to look at. There's a lot to listen to. They always have weird sounds happening in the background. There's people running all around you around the stage kind of like on a loop and their footsteps where their low there like fifty feet away from you. Hear him like they're right next to you so it can be a lot of people on stream were like this. Is this this stinks. This is bad. And i might actually. I think it might be good guys. I'm having a pretty good time But y- you have to kind of see for yourself. And i think it's it's like twenty bucks but I don't know how i'm thinking it's worth it. It's it's definitely interesting. Yeah nice invest in flesh. Yes yeah i put all my money into flesh. Carbon all right. Let's move on to some news about it as long games. Yeah yeah a lot of a lot of games. News news news This this just happened Looks like remedy assigned a new deal with five. Oh five games. Which i just. It's in the press. Release here. And i have to say it every time i see it. Five games in international video game publisher and subsidiary of digital bros. group a common my digital bros. Called off the analog brothers. A couple of good albums was like ice tea and cookie them. Nothing wrong rather They have come to a new deal. With the control franchise and remedy will be working on a spin off That is a four player. Co op Take on control. That is not that. I make make up that. Oh yeah or player coop. Pva game code-named condor by player. Leopard did this. Is that a left for dead tv. Four player co op in that role. Universe at sounds like four players making their way through the oldest house or some kind of shifting space shooting a bunch of control people with cool control powers. That might be that might be cool it. It also sounds like half the games that answer the three unfortunately this yeah yeah yes. We have a quote here from rami and rafi galante. The co ceos of digital bros. group. I assume that they are the digital bros. As they should ask name but We're excited to continue further expand. Our collaboration with remedy with over two million copies sold and revenue extending exceeding seventy million euros trolls and extremely successful. Game i just wanted to say that this will bros. part again the quotes not actually the relevant The rest of it here though. In addition five five games in remedy have outlined high level collaboration terms to further expand the control franchise with a bigger budget control game to be agreed in more detail in the future. So not just the four player co named condor thing. This is kind of setting the stage for more control in the future which they make more control. That's my expert opinion. They should continue to make more games than the control universe. Because it's so damn good. There are three galante. Brothers apparently are on the show digital bros. key people chairman and the ceo on the director. Galante's it's going to be one of the biggest publishers coming at italy right. They the digital list of i feel like digital rose wasn't that wasn't that name used as a budget line in the uk. Hey or in cal territory. Sounds like us. But i couldn't. They just rebranded as five. Oh five in the. Us and the tried to get out of that kind of budget Mental or tried to dodge the budget reputation that they had over there an italian publishers. Have the best names. I think there's one called the video game party Which really solid that's good. That's apparently this apparently describes its devices like eighty nine. They did a lot of publishing in italy. So like the italian versions of pro evolution. Tomb raider around for a while. But i guess Yeah the acquisitions and investments look like it's sort of kicked off in the past couple years. Yeah yeah they've been they've been trying to make a run at it for last handful years control like the big breakout potential for five o. Five even it miss there for a while Let's see here. Kasi is coming to smash brothers tomorrow today. Sorry today. I believe he is out and The next character will be the last Soccer is announced that the next the next carol. Finish the current season of eric and Apparently it will be the final character for smash brothers ultimate So we've only got one more shot at really angering a lot of people here and i wanna know who who is going to. I m my money is on mr do Or or dan from street fighter. Think that that would really probably piss off a lot of people. anyone is gonna be a rabid. It's going to be a rabid from the mario's raboteau that would actually they should just do rabid versions of all the characters in the game and do different herbie. Good yeah okay. That'd be good so that Yeah someone who has bank Can we get a car nov in here. Can we get the car from breakthrough Like something will yeah. i would. yeah people saying. This is while louise last chance i've yeah. I wonder if they're like if they're saving that for last and they're just like this is what the fans want or if it's going to be like martha has a cousin from a different timelines. We thought that'd be cool In a put in dove aquin that would really he got me in the last one. Yup and everyone's like. Hey todd howard did it. Even got sky reported the smash. Oh my god who else then walk. They go hawk son. Oh hell yeah good though yeah field you know we get like triple h in there just to get a triple eight like amigo. Crowd shop animation. From mario super striker. So yeah sure. Why not yeah. It's it's weird to think of at eight. I'm when they are no longer working on this game. And i feel like every time sakarai out there were like i feel bad. It is hard to envision like that. He's just chained to that desk. Doing those livestreams with all the stories about him of passing out going to the gym while they're working on it and just all the stuff that he has done working on this game in particular but the last couple probably. I wonder if this is his last ride for this franchise and if you know someone else takes it on no don. Old nintendo stuff got has had like the next generation. Come up and take it over right. Like mario and zelda like even like it's like zola's unlike its third generation of leadership he moved up and there's like kinda overseeing the fukushima think something like that and then so but that hasn't happened with smash and it feels like if this would have been in the time to training the next generation. So hopefully there's someone ready to step into those shoes. Yeah you really get the impression with an incentive properties specifically that a lot of their decisions. And i think japanese companies in general maybe but but nintendo maybe more than the others that like these games need a champion internally to get the next over the line to like lincoln remote data internally and make the case or it and get it green lit and all that stuff and if there is no next generation for smash as much as it's been a big moneymaker like nintendo has walked away from plenty of big franchises over the years and i could see them doing that. Well i i don't think that will happen. I do think that they will if this if zachariah ends up kind of getting off the rollercoaster. Now i think they probably have someone else who would be overly site to make another smash game in four or five years but yeah it's a interesting end of an era potentially in a few different ways but we'll see i could also see a world where sacks wrote back in. It's like no. I'm here to do. I'm making another one. Let's go. I can't wait for the kingdom arts community to be very upset and it's not going to be sore. Wow that's pretty sophisticated looking into it. I think that's half the fun as as mash is. That's statistic side of dislike. All right i just wanna see who's gonna be pissed this time Palladio differently anymore but true. Yeah put up big tall lady in their the love. it blew up. Okay yeah Put the scoring all right now. I was actually going to hurt. Lego scorpion in it. Yeah let's see this happened earlier today. House mark has been a quired by Sony interact entertainment The quote from the from the their dead that i always assumed sorta just was anyway but i guess now inc is dried officially. Yeah yeah. I mean there. Last handful games have been really associated with the published by sony in some cases and other stuff like it's it will larry than iron l. anyway Pronouncing this wrong no matter what but the yari or lari kuitunen. who's the one of the co founders of house mark Gave a brief statement to the playstation. Balogh this studio clear future and a stable opportunity to continue delivering on game play centric approaches while still experimenting with new methods of narrative delivery and pushing the boundaries of this modern art form. Smart feels like they were a studio trying to grow beyond the aims that they had been known for the rezzo guns of the world and like that type of stuff they through that phase. They're putting out press releases saying like that. Phase is over working on this bigger thing now and battle. Yeah making a battle royale. We're doing this like it. Really felt like they were trying to do stretch into something bigger. Maybe that didn't even have sony involved and then that stuff kind of l. Apart or morphed into something happened in return all eventually was the think it lined up with what sony was doing. I think that's what happened was Sony was like hey yeah cool. If you haven't anything bigger now come call us. Come talk to us and say hey we need to make bigger to survive period Maybe we make one of our games but we bring the camera down right behind the back like all the games. Maybe sony would be interested in suicide. Yes we are. Please your camera. Api for these triggers exactly. Yeah just nicely for them. They probably just put out of these. Probably sent sony a demo of just like feel this controller rumbling when the rain hits the suit. And they're like. Oh yeah here. How much do you need. We'll sell it for seventy bucks by the way and they're like oh Yeah this seems like one of those kind of inevitable things. But i i think the quote i picked a stable opportunity. I think is one of the key phrases there that you know. This is something that provides stability to accrue. That shurmur said they were trying to find their way in an increasingly weird market. And and this seems like a. This seems like it's probably a good outcome and there's no way that will return to isn't like a really really big deal. I think i think that's gonna be a pretty big game when it comes out or whatever they do next i of the. They're going to learn from what they did. And i think they're going to capitalize on. Sony wants to kind of be there for anybody. I hope that this leads to them being kind of a slightly different cadence to i think he think mark is like there the studio there at launched their the studio this there like the downloadable thing at launch and then maybe another one later in the life cycle but like this i feel like returnable really breaks him out of that loop and i'd love to see them taking i'd love to see him take another cracker fraternal. Yeah that would be solid. Because i think there's some stuff there that yeah i wish was a little smoother and i think if they took another stab at it i think they can really Something like really really amazed older. Some people think bitter internal is really amazing. Yeah gets very good and could be amazing out. They also strike me as the team. That probably could benefit from like twenty percent more personnel. Like those games are now stretching a little bit like return felt like a game that kinda was like stretching to be a big budget game and perhaps that investment will will help them get there. 'cause like what were the games they put a matter. Fall was out and some other stuff as well like the knicks. These days malka no right. Yeah forget about them. Because like you said the They were games a sort of like i remember. They kind of looked like they could be big budget. But then you play them. Sort of like stripped down there clearly from teams. so yeah. maybe it'll the optimum kind of reached out next step or i mean. Maternal was that i maybe but maybe this helps them down that path. Yeah definitely. I think that could possibly what was the little. I was gonna talk about the tweet. This another additional wrinkle. Is that the japanese playstation account tweeted out something with a very similar graphic but instead of the instead of house mark logo was the blue point games logo and the nine ahead of pitcher. Demon's souls on it yeah right. Yeah that they they had some version of that graphic Ready to go idea that's I i would not be surprised. Given the shakeup. That happened at japan studio as well. And that's another team that is basically tied into the sony. Dna at this stage and on charlotte collection. And that's you know there another one that you go. Oh they're not owned by sony right. So there's a. There's a lot of reasons for these things to happen right now to Sony has a lot of money and it's game division. It has a lot of money in the bank. That money's going to be worth less next year because of inflation. They also are worried about the tax landscape. Changing as you know it was like more. Liberal leadership gets into place in key countries than might have to pay more in taxes Spin this money now. So that it's it's you know you're actually going to get something back for it. And also these these studios are looking around and saying hey we might never ever be worth this much again. Games are in high demand on microsoft's acquiring a lot of companies ten cents acquiring a lot of companies or at least putting a lot of money into places and we are also selling a lot of games. I bet number paternal numbers look really good on a powerpoint saying hey we went from this to this look at that chart look how much revenue went up. We're worth more now than we might ever be. So let's get let's sell now. Everything's just lining up on that side of things too. Yeah there's it's really feels like there's some kind of feeding frenzy happening around just like mergers and acquisitions and all these days ten cent. Obviously building a big chunk of that And there's more to come whether that's sony. You know whether this blue pointing happens or not. Like i don't know that that's necessarily mean could just be language issue. It could be you know like a simple mistake Or it could be put it this way you know. It's not a simple mistake. Then they probably would have just announced it by now right because you don't get that graphic ready deliberately unless you've got the acquisition happening like whoever is making that graphic if they're in the know that they need to make that graphic than it already happened or it's a simple amount to or is that where he or because you don't tell the person making graphics for social care about a company no i know extended leaks and there's a bunch of other you know. Maybe they sure maybe they like you know. Maybe it is a done deal. And they're just sort of you know spacing it out. Who knows like it could be anything. That's a good thing it was. It wasn't blue-box. Oh god that's next week it's microsoft. They're picking them up. And that's a metal gear. Yeah it's weird though for sure. Yeah it's weird it's weird timing But i it would not shock me if that is not actually happening in this ended up being some weird a mistake or some game telephone gone awry or something like that but them social losers fan dark fantasy yet now. They're into the folder eight here. We go all right blue point. Welcome to the family. Well to the family fuckers all right. I quit mass effect. Talk about it okay. Is this insider. Talked to mac walters. Who's the one of the project directors for legendary edition kind of one of one of the higher up basis of the mass effect franchise these days and kind of just he was out there saying it's not a matter of if but when mass effect gets turned into some kind of move your tv remember. They did wild mak with legendary That never came to anything I just the but Yeah mac walters kind of build a case here in in this interview talking about how. Hey the mass effect franchise is built a lot of ways like a television show with each mission kind of going off onto its side stories with a plot and plots and that sort of stuff and that that type of long form storytelling so long is a great place. For game franchises. I tend to agree with a lot of movies. Runtime of a movie is not enough to do justice to a longer video game stories I just yeah. I don't know all this talk about mass effect like it's just back in everyone's cool with that. Seems really me enough time in jail before it's like i don't know charged before you just try to pivot right back to mass effect and try to pretend and drama didn't happen in the mass effect. Three caused a lot of very negative shifts in gaming culture and the online Is an argument for like. Maybe mass effect is never going to be the franchise because it's so tainted by fan expectation like like since the stars like definitely to like like you said three is when the car came off the track where like now. It's just this it's like. There are certain games right where they a narrative internet narrator fan. Narrative just will forever haunted. Sometimes it's positive and sometimes it's negative but like no sky or maybe star field is a new another one right where the there'll always be this sort of meta commentary over to me feels like it's one of those games it just has this way hanging over like why would anyone go nearest like it. Maybe it's not even worth. The amount of hassle and effort is dressed to nail the landing. You know i bet. Most of the people that would sign. Those deals are not even aware that know. They're gonna look at the powerpoint they're going to look at the sales they're gonna go like. Oh well. yeah i mean. There was some hubbub about the the ending of the trilogy and andromeda was buggy or whatever like maybe here little bits and pieces of that when they're on their fact-finding mission. But i think yeah probably pretty good job of kind of papering over that downside When talking about these deals. And get something done simply because i think a lot of these streaming services especially if we're talking television right either like episodic like i think all of those platforms are so desperately hungry or content from known. Ip's right at deal gets done anyway Yeah it's it's probably not even part of the calculus like android is not a part that like you know ep. Being like well look you know. We're gonna have to get across some of that baggage you know like how it's like. Now you know like like everyone knows. We're gonna yeah okay story with the brand that has its own day like star wars does. Hey we have got at excited. people are. that's that's an actual real easy. So yeah it's one thing. I learned when i started talking about the detroit. Remastered happening is i was like. Oh yeah that they're going to do that. Of course they're going to do that. I bet some people care. And then i found out. There's a lot of people who really care a whole lot about mass effect. And i was just unaware of this huge this huge huge audience. That is still out there. Every day you know with their seven stuff in and they're the twitter bio and stuff. And i was surprised in me. I think people probably woke up woke up to the realized that as well at a and said hey. We need to do something about that sooner rather than later. Especially if we do wanna make another one in these games. We got to capitalize on the stuff while people are still like that's their whole identity. And if they can do if they can put that trilogy out and get that car back on the track like it helps forget. Everything that happened. Seems seems to have worked. It definitely seems like when they showed that little teaser was last year when they were like. Hey or making a new mass effect game awards or wherever that was but people went fucking shit for it and you're like oh okay. You guys really have short memories about this stuff. Wasn't that long ago that everyone was mega pissed about all this stuff. But let's go. Yeah yeah. I'm i'm surprised but maybe i shouldn't be That when it comes to that stuff but there you go windows eleven. they made it through that stream. I mean when that stream wasn't breaking they had They had a rough time on that. Oh my god. I was trying to watch it that morning and the stream crashed. I had to refreshed. Ivan eventually ended up watching their twitter stream oval They they were streaming and on twitter as well and that one worked. When microsoft's own site crashed people are saying like edge. Like was the only browser that wouldn't run it for a moment and your face. They gave some details about windows. Eleven the next version of windows due out later this year. Re upgrade generally speaking and They made it through that whole presentation. As far as i can tell. I was kind of out of the room. But i'm pretty sure they got through it without making any kind of like this. Windows goes to eleven like they. They sidestepped all the file tap. Shit so i just want to applaud them for going there. Because jesus like going on like they're gonna they're going to say because you know because the the setup is there right. They were like windows. Ten last windows ever a. Why are we making windows. Eleven because this one's fucking cranked up bro like this like almer bomber never would have let that opportunity go. He would one hundred hundred dollars. He's almost trying to charge money for windows. Eleven but it's a different chapter for microsoft. It's not this is not the up to eleven microsoft so yeah it was like a very the presentation up very human in a way that I don't remember the the gentleman's name was speaking. But you know he's talking about connecting with his family and stuff it felt like this very Panos yeah yeah we have. It felt very human. In a way that i feel like microsoft is always great at he was stumbling bit talking about these emotions and stuff and i was like. Oh that's they're doing a good job of this. But then i was picking apart but that what they're trying to do is just when they when they were wrong announcing that android tablet that they built like panels like he has a certain way of doing these things where he sort of like. He delivers it in a way that he himself is even surprised that they did the thing where he sort of like. He'll just be like you know like and here it is i. I can't believe but it's actually. It's black it's just like he's there's something about his delivery shows off like maybe four degrees or you're just like mike it people watch it. Yes you can't. Yeah but it is like a thing that you're just like i got to see how this is going to go so some gaming related details as it relates to windows eleven here That the xbox wire went ahead and summarize they're bringing some of the xbox stuff over the pc auto hdr which you know kinda debuted their Widely on the series x They're gonna bring that over two. Pc zooming you have an issue our screen which i still don't on my pc anyway And direct storage. Which is the fast loading. Hey we're gonna just launch assets directly at your gpu and bypass all these other bottlenecks. Assuming you have a fast vme ssd. And they didn't really give too many details around what they consider to be a fast and vme as a But they will sell things as direct storage ready already. More information than Yeah yes. Is there dr list. Those will be the ones direct storage optimized Is something they'll be able to say. Like oh and stuff selling systems. We'll be able to say. Hey this is. This is ready to do that. Thing the fast loading as ended up being one of the coolest things about these new consoles and so rain. Pc may people have added ssd's on the pc for years right. There was games usually low pretty fast but not as fast as they used to though any improvement. Here i down for the the word that the one thing that stood out to me was They're finally going to get rid of the windows. Eight code base. That's in the windows store and replace it with modern code so This thing has been a nightmare to use for so long because of all that windows. Eight legacy stuff and And yeah and and they're going to change how they sell stuff they already announced. The twelve percentage split with developers. Awhile back they're gonna keep that for games but if you have an app you wanna come in there. bring your own Pity payment processing. You can do that and not give any money to microsoft and up as someone who is extremely lazy and while i appreciate going out and finding like side loading stuff in getting stuff off the web i actually would use a window store to get like the simple stuff like i used to get slack. I got slack from the store. A lot of stuff isn't on there. 'cause they don't wanna share money with windows and so now that they don't have to. I'm hoping that actually gets a lot. More use yeah. There's been some cases where some apps you get them out of the windows store and they're different than the versions that you would just go download for a website and ways window. The microsoft store lags behind on some updates. And you're like well i'm sorry. Go down with the real one and not stick around with this store and so this probably helps sidestep shows us. There was like weird stuff with like. I think it was just like shell stuff where you know you would have like the slack. The windows ten slag version as opposed to like the executed that slack which has led to. Yeah but now. It's all thirty two going forward. I think so. Yeah should be that would show up in like the built in notification sort of environment that they've been trying to get off the ground for so long Yes the optimistic type stuff. You don't get with the you know applicants for free with their sort of walled garden whereas they've always sort of been writing the line or whatever so i'm gonna grab i think i'd i would like to have that stuff sort of more contained like i read it like my adobe creative cloud plot. Yeah everything updates on us. All right all works there. I you know. I'm happily take your estimate. The funny thing about windows. Like i feel like every time. There's a windows upgrade. You get to the point in the in. The timeline of of the current windows were like things. Just start to fucking feel like they're being held up with duct tape and weird chef by individuals. Just like a thug. I need to clean slate. Let's do another window. And i feel like we're almost kind of there with ten or at least are those areas especially around game is right where you like. They have this separate box app. Now when you try to install a game if you then look load the microsoft store it'll show the dow happening there too because it's really triggering that one to do with the thing in new right like it's it's just this clunky ass process that like in the game pass games install in a weird way still where they wanna be installed in a very specific way. They've they've fixed some aspects of that. But it's still just funky enough money. Hopefully they can kinda wipe the slate clean for for all of that and and just make it a lot easier to deal with help make game pass games more moderable in some cases easier to capture an ob s because some of those wbz apps are ongky. You should get your hooks in the stream It'd be nice to just see a lot of that stuff change and then you'll have to enable secure. I guess is the other. The other piece of this stuff is cut it. I find it fascinating the technology. Because this and again i feel like i understand what you're talking about t. Pm which is a trusted platform module which is essentially hardware. They could live on the cpu itself or in like a motherboard. And i feel like. I understand how it works enough to know what the net result is. Maybe like all the kind of details in between and the and the and the details of a little dicey but the way i understand it is. It is literally a hardware lock. The that is on paper on hackel. I don't know how it works. I don't know if there's like a weird little vacuum that exists between things like you just can't be infected with accurate news or whatever the fuck is i would imagine. This is all in a response to the massive cpu breaches. That happened a couple years ago where there was like two or three catastrophic hawking out real bad everybody yeah i swear until the until the point was like any chip made after eighty. Four fucked like you're just like what the every chip really. But i would imagine. This tech is in response to it. Odds are you know if you bought a machine recently. You're going to be all right. But from what i found personally is that the pm is not a thing. That's like activated automatically. You have to go into your bios and sort of like flip. The digital switched yourself. Seems scary like if you do that there was like some sort of warring where it was like. You sure you wanna do that. And you're like why what's going to happen. If the power goes out or something weird seems like there is some point of no return. I started doing it. And so i wouldn't buy bios and i'm like well i'll just go turn the stuff on now and see what's up and i went to go turn it on is like yeah. You can't do that because the csm is loaded and you gotta go. Turn that off. And i was like what the fuck is. Csm tried to go through all the other pages the bios to find it was like a compatibility layer of like well if you have older peripherals that are not you ready. Then you need to turn this on. It will boot faster. I'm like great all my ships new. I'll turn all that shit off and and it should be good so i turned that off. But then you have. It's like a step of okay to generate hardware key. I'm like okay. All right yes. I've had a pg key back in the day. Yeah crypto. baby let's get mining and started turning all that stuff on and then stopped just short of actually enabling it all the way i daughter started freaking out. I'm like okay. I gotta go But yeah i heard some folks say that their motherboards have popped messages saying like. Oh you can turn on this on. You're going to have to race everything. Wait a minute wait. Like i don't know if that's a couple of people complaining about that and i was like i don't know if that's going to be a widespread issue or not but in some ways kind of been a long time coming. These modules have existed for a long time is just they talked with windows. Ten about maybe requiring this in the back down from it so maybe the seems like the are. We're serious this time. I mean everything. I've read his lead me to believe like the pros. Outweigh the cons here I and the way in which they're going about. I mean look. They have a lot of more education to do in terms of like. What pm is how you had. No you have it. I mean it is a go nogo for installing windows eleven. So you absolutely need it. And they're basically like no exceptions. Maybe aside from like. I dunno fucking mike. Nasr's computers were like they. They are pretty You know clear on on like the situation. They're doing doing these like you know. You can download some sort of like hardware checker and see if it's been activated on the on your machine and then you can. And then they've updated that a little bit to be more transparent. It just seems like it's not fun. And not a great situation to be in. But i guess like i said the got a handful of months to educate people about what all that stuff is. Because they're out this holiday But yeah i could see that being confusing people. I liked the look of it generally. I don't want my past. Barbie centered. I wanted to be. I wanna be able to changes slam it down left and you can you. Can you can change it back. I want to be able to do that. Sightless of just like yep. I know i'm over the start right now. Because i moved down to the corner and centering it. Pretty but Yeah i don't know weirdly. I get really excited about windows upgrades and got my bill gates signature. Edition windows Out in the garage. Yeah i got windows. I got windows ninety five as the thirteenth birthday present. So you know. I remember that box move windows. Ninety five floppies out in the garage will bring that to your c net job interview. You're thirteenth birthday about. How do you think. I got fucking hired man. I wonder if this will lead to like you. Know like they touched on it but didn't really get too far into it. But they're looking to let people run android apps on ios eleven I wonder what that does for gaming Because there are just a lot of mobile games and stuff that would be like. I've flirted with and an un uninstalled and reinstalled blue stacks a lot of times over the years which is an android emulator And if you google it or look it up. It's always people going like this things. Like full of malware right things a nightmare right and this just. You're never quite sure if it's safer not a lot of very Spammy looking website saying yes. Of course it's safe. You should definitely install it. We did the research. it's good. I can for all. I know the bad people wrote this but what it does do is it will kind of force installers. There's a paid tear. But he will force install apps out of the android store onto your fake android device on windows which seems to be artificially driving up installs for certain games that are probably paying blue. Stacks to do it and also stuff like shady in its own way even if it's not malware Like there are a handful of of mobile games. I would like to be able to play on a desktop for a variety of reasons. Whether it's just like oh what's you know controller support all that stuff bluetooth now but like you know. It'd be neat if people could play like a call of duty mobile on windows. Eleven as another option. If they want to check that out there that would be kinda cool. What's funny is You know google and microsoft relationship when it comes to those. That's the sort of thing where like. I occasionally uniquely qualified to talk about that because i've only ever had an android phone and like even right now like my phone is connected to windows so like the i don't know if it mirrors the one to one sort of experience you get when you have a an apple you know along with your iphone but it i would imagine it accomplishes a lot of the same sort of things and it is that that is a relationship. They've been you know anytime. There's a new pixel or or there is a flagship microsoft event. Like they go out of their way to kind of like scratch each other's backs and be like we're in this together for the long haul and like together we could maybe make a dent in apple i in that regard and some aspect of them setting the store prices. The way they are is well-timed with you know everyone taking a look at apple and their app store policies and all other stuff that just be like. We'll do it for free go bring your payments stuff Yeah yeah interesting. times around. That stuff isn't more microsoft news they have upgraded the cloud. Nuke new clouds Vaping much harder now they've got full vapor chambers and they've got series x style hardware powering a lot of the games on xbox game pass ultimate streaming is that the full name of that thing should just kept out. So there's a there's a list of these they they haven't necessarily put out a full list of themselves but you know there's been a lot of anecdotal stuff of people. Running games like outriders destiny What else here arc alliance. Mlb the show. No man's sky gears five according to a list on deal games chronicle here that they've sampled These games now seem to be Running series x level hardware whereas before all of it was kind of xbox one style so but outriders was the one i was playing off and on and going from playing it on a real series x two lying in a browser ear. You just look at it and go like this is on top of grungy because you're running the old version of the game and doing all this other stuff but sooner they talked about it in the happening in the coming weeks but then they kind of just turned this around quickly but this is all happening a little bit sooner than i thought it would And that's pretty rad. It's something they kind of needed to do right. Yeah the the thing that's this is going to lead to is getting the x. Cloud stuff on the xbox one console so you know you'll be able to play flights simmons stuff on there when that happens this is. This is all getting ready for that. Like i had heard that right before he three and then they did that. That brief at eighty three where they basically said this is what the the roadmap is going to be so by the end of the year you should be able to play like a xbox series x stuff on your xbox one's so that that that's yeah i think that's that's that felt like where they're always headed with this stuff and the as part of that brief they said. Hey we're going to have our own custom streaming hardware other stuff to you. So they're they're definitely looking at different ways to get people into these games Speaking of which you can now do it on an iphone in a web browser that is rolled out as well Well i've not tried that yet. Been playing it in in edge. Because i'm a fire fox user and every time you try to load the the loud stuff on fire fox. It's like you should use chrome or ed not right. I don't have chrome install though edge europe. Yeah that's cool. That's been a long time coming. It's not the way. I i still wish that stuff like you know i messed with it on an android device a little bit and i feel like that's just a better cleaner experience than the web browser stuff but point splitting hairs and it's apple being apple so That will change depending on how these court cases Eilly the news here The ceo of cd project read says that cyberpunk performance has reached a satisfying level These were remarks given by adam Kaczynski i believe the pronunciation there And the oh as part of the warsaw stock exchange innovation day The quote here that video games chronicle pulled as we've also been working on improving the overall quality which we are also quite happy about of course we also removed bugs and this is translated. I believe we also removed bugs and visual glitches. And we will continue to do that over time. We will also be introducing improvements to the general game systems. That players have highlighted though. It finally done with the bugs. I guess or wrapping up on the bugs part and now they can make the game better. A should have not put this game out. Yeah crazy this this. Game's kind of just a bummer. Now because like the hype for beforehand was so high. And i played it. And i thought it was okay but it was clearly not what they promised and i just have. I'm just over. I'm so over it. Now i i don't care if that they think it satisfy night. Good luck with that. I i mean maybe someday you'll be able to sort of build this back up into that too that winter. Three story of like man look at all the support. And how will they did with that. But at this point i just. I don't even like the yellow texting. And i just i zone out. So yeah that's where. I met with this where i just don't even wanna hear about anymore. I mean i it. At the end of the day like i i chug through it around launch and before all these bugs hit and fought my way through the pc version of the game. And i i think it needs a lot of improving to just gameplay systems and all the other stuff the be like a better game on that front like you know the performance and other stuff like yes obviously but like. I know how that story ends. It's not unless they're going to go back in and change all that like i. I don't think the story was particularly great. Also this just they should fix it. They should continue to do the work. But i you know increasingly it just feels like that ship has sailed and you know they. They will have a fresh shot at it when the Ps five and xbox series x versions hit. They're still miami with that will be out later this year but an When you think about the size the potential impact of that game could have had a critically in sales wise and all this other stuff or like how ready people were for that game to what they shipped and how damaging that has been through that entire company's reputation. I you have to wonder like do a. Are they kicking themselves. Like yeah we should have just given it six more months and they were clearly in denial for long time about a to just trying to like we could. Style is the worst part. It's still good. It's still good that homer simpson thing the flu ham or whatever. It's still good still good and they just ended up making everyone else mad at them getting put in sony's penalty box for six months. Which so weird thing right. That's six months. Just seems like that was pre-decided how long that would be like we're just gonna straight up punish you. This has nothing to do with whether the games ready or not. You're just getting punished now. And they deserved it. The way through. Sony under the bus so just bad decisions all around. Yeah i think on that front. Like should sony have a better refund policy in place. Yes absolutely but if you look at that as a partnership between a first party and a third party cd project red going public with. Here's what you do with. Maybe not informing sony of that at a time. Get if she. You have the marketing deal with microsoft and sony not going to have a very long leash with you clearly and it was a pair call. Yes yes that could have probably could have all been handled better. There's probably a handful of things that they wished the decisions. They wish they had back over there as he project. Read but yeah. I wonder what happens next right. We can see the next step. Is that like sort of you. Know we're fixing the game or we're gonna put at the next gen version. I'll be sort of a little bit of clean slate time. But i do wonder what happens next because in a way it does mirror the evolution of the witcher where you had a lot of junior developers a lot of people in new positions at you know working on this game at the first game ends up being completely buggy mask the second game having this like fans who were stalwarts for which three is the one that people actually played in cared about. So i wonder if you know. Do we see something similar for cyberpunk where the second game. Suddenly the narrative around is people being pushing for them to today's properly. You know what. I mean like like we've seen so many of these games that have risen from the ashes. Yeah i think potential is there It's just a matter of like what's it gonna take for them to get that credibility back with the fan base like it still doesn't quite feel like they're there So that so that a next game if they announced a follow up right. Now you'd be like wait a minute you haven't yet. What seven years. what are we doing. Yeah so it's like there's just yeah like do they even make a second cyberpunk game i think so i think with the technology investments you out of the first time. They've made a first person game. It was the first time they'd made a shooter like it was a whole other way of making games for them that i think you don't on this game made a profit like it's made a you know as damaged as the as i think you have to. Do you have to go again. I suspect though that they will. I wonder if they will go into a t. to they're so big now they booked up so much for this game that i do wonder if they start to co-development or at least two projects at the same time you know yeah to doing other. Witcher the get people on board against of bethesda games studios have done as well with saying like. Oh we're doing another other schools but also here's this other star field game. That's that's come. yeah. I think of a pallet cleanser of of a a good solid new witcher game would probably do a lot for them to get some distance. Between this and whatever's next or sure remastered first one just do the first one. I just want to pay more richer. And they want to pay more carrollton. Yeah are the second one. Yeah yeah you're probably right You're probably right. I mean if mass effect has shown us anything is that people are gonna say suckers suckers there s. I'm def yeah. I am too at the idiot.

Neil from ireland writes in and says what's the best bomber man game Are there any or as my love of atomic bomber man all nostalgia. Also i can't surely both can't be the first to say giant bomber man. Possible tien what did guys call mega bomber man. Because presumably wasn't called. That on the genesis. I i think it was just called bomber man. Okay i think well off the look now but yeah. The dennis version of bomber man This is my For it was my first. So it's kind of like the mario kart thing. Maybe where like. It's my favorite. Because it had a good campaign with the kangaroos you could jump on. How all guess flavor at hot spots he could play local before people because it was on the multi tap who good time. Yeah that's Yeah i'm i'm trying to look to see what it was called it. May it may have just been called megabomb. Remain here as well. I'm not actually positive pal boxes for it. Hard to this. You'd never got us. We did get it but it happened in ninety five so yeah. Anyway i think Bomber man ninety three is my favorite bonderman game for the turbo. It is it is the is the. It's one of the last ones before they filled it full of dinosaurs and people around the edges of the screen and all that other wack shit that kinda turned it into like a mario party joke Nine degrees when it was real baby and ninety. Three's when i want a tournament for it as so it has to be the one by default. What did you win. So we went to see this would have been see esque Before there was no three me. Ryan mcdonald and glenn rubenstein all went out there to hang out play video games or whatever T t i turbo touch industries. I think was the name of the company that was wrapping the turbo in the us They had a tournament in ninety-three that we won pretty handily and won a trip to cancun o. Waas wow or did you go neither fifteen or something. Yeah because we were sixteen and we won a trip to goddamn cancun prepared to go. I talked my parents into that. Like saying that that was okay. Glenn had as well and then ryan's parents can absolutely not. What and so they sent us the tickets and then we had to fedex them back to. Ti's pr team. I think they were pissed because they were going to go as well. It was like one of those things where like there used to be a lot of video game industry events. You could tell that like the pr team book the event because they wanted to go there on vacation and And so captivate captivating. Hawaii fuck it. Right was easy for that but yes so. I got the impression that they were even more bummed because it meant that they didn't get to go either. Oh man Because you guys ryan i. The whole thing fell apart for a variety of reasons. I was ryan was out of. I think a lot of the just kind of yeah it just. It didn't make sense for us to be sixteen going to cancun and so it's fair. Yeah what are you hearing me survive. Vegas like it's true. Yeah vegas we. Yeah we took a trip to a movie theater in a very sketchy part of chicago one of those years and was like oh. We have no idea what we're doing anywhere. We go very sixteen bomber man in conclusion. That's the best parliament. Every so i've been playing a little bit of the came out the battle royale thing that just came out Ps four that was the stadium game. Originally it's free to play and you can buy a battle pass and all this other stuff and it's like they're aspects of it that are cool but then they put a bunch of like pyramid head and solid snake and all this other stuff in it and give them a boost and stuff. it's weird. Yeah it's just purity of bomber man like it's. It's not meant to be that pyramid coming. Like hit you with an axe or whatever. He does like his side. Like you can do that. He could just like malay you walk like five percent of the speed of every other ways. I think it's a little bit slower than yeah. It's weird but then also like they charge money for those characters. I think in some cases so it is literally like you're paying for these weirdly seemingly overpowered abilities. I don't know who's not yet not yet. I'm hoping that my bruce willis will just come right in that they'll do the deal without. Nfc just yeah. Nfc is going to pay off someday. You'll see the wealthy nick and or the genre dick's In the sim racing community grant is enforcing motor. Motorsport games are not considered racing simulators depending on how charitable the people in the community are being it will refer to them as either sim cades or gateways. Wow is right. Cade From from your point dismissing. The sim racing community. What is the difference between a racing game. A racing sim and potentially a game type. That is in the middle of those two extremes easy enough. Yeah i'd i'd like i play a bunch of race wheeled setup a chair in the room next door and like i play the formula one game on us and that's not even a sim like the and that's pretty technical like that's way. More technical than forza or cranberries. Oh the real driving simulator. Like i think it's it's games where you know. Aspects of like torque and wheelspin and grip and like mechanical grip an aero and like when those things are part of the process of playing the game. I'm not just like window-dressing even notice or something like that much like racing. I think that's when it becomes a sam and all at this stage. I feel like you have to have wheel support. Your game doesn't have like we. All support him pedaled supports than question is not a sim happy. I view it as i think. This is something that like. I was one of those john. Ras that meant different things depending on if you were talking about pc or console that like that stuff has merged a lot. It's a little. It's a little funky. But i still view it as you've got your need for speeds in the arcade racing category. Gt enforcer are sims and then the further you go in that direction. Those are just per complete wack jobs. I think i respect the shit out of racing and all the other stuff. But i just look at it. He fun fuck called irene a game around them they would get mad at say no. It's a simulator. That's the that's the group we're talking about. Some of these are bad games like project cars. I think when it first came out as well it was like not a great game but it was like if you likes you know setting up like specific ours and specific tracks or like a set of course are certainly i racing like. They're not they're not good games. That are like ready for you to beat them and play them and enjoy them like they are definitely sort of more in the tool sash. Like not quite like what's weird is then you get games like microsoft flight simulator. Absolutely him but also they've somehow managed to make it so that it's it's like accessible to people who don't want to play it as the sim like you can kind of like i mean it's gotta come out on consoles with controller support. You can turn an awful lot of that stuff and the kind kind of nailed it. So i think like it is yeah. This is like the blurry of wondered if that fights team looked at orta. Because you know if we set aside the part where people don't think forces. A sim like the different levels of assistance. Enforcer is what makes it so accessible to so many different people you can turn that often. Have something of a sim s experience to be charitable. I guess but But like with those assists on it definitely starts to blur that line even more where it's like. I am doing racing the way you know. I am carrying about my racing line. And i am breaking going into turns instead of just being my way around them and that to me. That's the difference if you have to hit the brakes. It's a sim And but those levels of assistance make it though that anyone can enjoy it. And i think flight simulator just took that to a new level and a lot of ways where they're just like 'cause it's it's a much more complicated thing in in some ways so yeah that's that's that's where i fall on especially because you what comes to car racing like differ motorsports and also like aaronow airplanes and stuff like that you think of as being knowledged you sort of have consumed in take for granted and the sort of bleeding edge of your knowledge of a topic is always a moving target so to use something is can be quite simulator that like even yourself three years later having learned more about this topic now feels like the easy stuff you know what i mean so like. Yeah that's why it's so hard to make these games right because like the formative one game is a great example where you can play on a controller and does all of these different help someone or you can turn them all off and you know it's it's way more difficult but even that isn't that the sim level of something i racing so it's a real. It's it's it's different for everyone and it's also moving all the time too scary rabbit hole for sure all right Let's see here nathan in cleveland. Ohio writes in and says seeing that. This year is the twenty-fifth anniversary of quake. I wanted to share my somewhat. Unique experience applying the shareware version for the first time in the summer of ninety six. I was getting ready to start high school. In the fall and requirement of my high school's advanced placement curriculum was to do job shadowing at a week. I decided to job shadow. My dad the same week. The shareware version of quake was released. This was especially convenient because his office was the only access. I had to computers powerful enough to run quake and a t one line that could download it in a reasonable amount of time. Now ever the reason my experience really stands out is where my father worked in ninety-six lieutenant colonel in the army stationed in dc long story short. I'm fairly certain. I'm the first person to ever play quake inside the pentagon from. That's a good story. That's that's dope tremendous. That's out as well because when they asked about like you're working could be classified got to some shares slipped gates They're working all kinds of crazy stuff over there. Patrick rams in the pentagon think can always been the case. A eric in springfield writes in and says follow on who would win in a kiss versus aqua bats fight kiss does possess superpowers and put them on display in the hanna. Barbera made for tv. Movie kiss meets. The phantom of the park really space man can shoot lasers and teleport peter chris aka the catman has superhuman agility and leaping powers all stanley aka star child can control and read minds. Gene simmons ak the demon has superhuman strength and can breathe fire not allowing anyone in the presence to speak of the movie. And peter. chris's acting being so bad. They had a dub over all his lines. I consider economical and definitive proof that they would defeat the aqua bats in battle guys talk about psycho circus. This came up. No no no someone needs to pick for for the you treasures they got. I thought you wanted be good game. Yeah the thing. I'll say to eric here is that i did consider kiss meets the phantom of the park when we had our conversation last. Wow that they are so ineffective and terrible that I don't think it sways the at all in favor no impact. Yeah no that movie you. It's worth taking a look at If if you haven't seen it it's it's a magical moment of cinema. It's a real train wreck of a film. It's people i guess i never. I guess i kind of knew about this people fucking hey kiss like people. Just hate that band pink. I think he the more and more time goes on. But i guess kiss was before my time so i i never really wrap my head around sort was just like oh these guys like i dig their costumes for when it for what it was when i was like twelve and i made aware of what kiss was but people fuck in hate them. Holy shit. I think when kiss the first time i was like seeing like modern kiss or like hey kisses putting out stop. It was when they took the face paint off. It was like that ono. No they're fucking cousteau. Mtv or whatever. Like villette filibustering. They let the music speak for itself. I think over the years. There's probably a couple of kiss songs that i would call catchy but i fucking hate kids like a guy who a couple songs i think are pretty good but man i just think his fucking sucks. Gene simmons epa insecure. He seems and core. Did this stuff so much better. Yeah i mean you know. Kiss to walk for them to rondo. Was the kiss get credit for that for being the cost me metal or the costume rock band. There's got to just like in the like invent and then reinvent how to merchandise band. I think that's the thing that i learned from is 'cause icp's merchandise game is like crazy not incorrect. But i don't know if they make. And i don't know that they made comic books that have their own blood in them. The way Did the case makes soda or they don't even make no interest adopted the fago right. Yeah yeah that's maybe the dumbest business move. Icp's give way if you are paying to throw that bego iran if you really like icp's song miracles then you will love fast night. Yeah wow what a jump. We are forgetting hooper. the checkpoints points out alice cooper. This completely irrelevant might as well then. Yeah hell you fucking coupon. In wayne's world people talk show people trying to link that maybe kisses also tangentially responsible for the tubers. Oh how do you make that. Jump out a single who had no. What kiss is you talk about it. No way the line is somewhere there. It's somewhere there is. There's probably this probably something there James in missouri writes in. What games do you want to see. Become backwards compatible On xbox that may never get there. My top. Three or max payne three articles of riddick and aliens versus predator. Extinction riddick is. Yeah riddick is a really solid choice. There max payne three would play the pc version of that still pretty sick looking to those game. Yeah that's such a good game. God thank you yeah. I'm trying to think of any other games. That would games. That would never get there. Usually think of like licensed games or games with very heavy licensed soundtracks. That would be hard to redo at this point Def jam icon. I might for new york. Oh man that does red dead have a compatibility mode honest ready to i mean yeah does it has like a new console sheen might kind of half step up the optimized. But they're definitely yeah. Yeah yeah Yeah i want. Marquette goes getting up. I do enjoy max payne three. I think that's a good call out. In a way that i feel like i find myself going back to that game on p. c. a lot just sort of playing around stay out again because when that game came out it was so not max payne one or two and so many other games had been third person shooters and stuff that i just. I found it to feel very clumsy. And just didn't yeah. I don't know. I didn't like any aspect of it enough to stick with bounce off it pretty quick couple of hours in style at the health did a bunch of the salvator. Ghana's yeah as long as i did but do health and chino marino. Put at a song two weeks ago. I was like two bands to artists. I love complete opposite ends of the spectrum that i've been banging that one but yeah it's matt on fire the video game and it doesn't really. Well yeah danny. Here's a question for you from From jeff in petaluma want to know what do you think about feel the taking a break from corn and not the summer. He's not he's said he had to kind of use. The phone and bad habits needed to take a step back. Okay and i respect us. The opposite is that he stays into long and ends up with what happened to probably which is like maybe should. I pulled back a little bit earlier. Because then he kind of kind of overcorrected some might say i into war with his tattoo choices. Placements and ideas behind those tattoos is he. So is john. Day was the only person who's not taking a break. They replace the drummer silva member. He he'd left. I think also for similar reasons. He was like i've got this is not up. This is not abandoned. You know they like to party. Hard has monkey left at any stage. I feel like he has credit field. He'd well credit but like did say that he would Hope to stay creative while he was off. And i'm hoping that we get a follow up to feel these dreams. Always more solo record Here's a problem. Feeli- i mean. They all played like weird. Like you know drop sort of qatar extra string but is there anyone else who like plays hit the base. The way he fucking does because he's like his strings are almost falling apart. It's all down tuned. He does the slap he plays double bass kind of this way slapping the like. Is there anyone like maybe fifteen twenty years ago. It was a lot of kids who were learning to play bass like a crazy not jobs that way but like our people like contrary won't do it to train someone to fucking. I wonder i. I was in was in and around bands. That were definitely trying to tune that way i i wrote. I wrote a couple of verses for a friend's band that like the guitar players. Were all tooting down. And and not that far down but like definitely in a way of like we can jump around on stage more because we only have to just put one finger off. Of course we're going for Score at a similar sort of ethos. Yeah yeah yeah but hey at least that trailer you know. David sounds great but something together on his own. So at least there's that See just not in. Like i am in on the corn joke but you guys are way more into corn than i jokingly. Same joke every time. What's what's the chelsea manning bad joke it's so funny because like in highschool or whatever the fuck they were popular like they were the joke and then i just came. I walked backwards into this joke. That you this recurring joke that you guys have and i'm just like i five hours. I will say that. That was the biggest band when i was in high school for sure and then they were gonna play ozzfest and i skipped it and went to go play castleblaney i bought. I sold my office ticket and used it to buy won't castle circle. Yeah and i said at the taco bell with the leftover money and ate some taco bell played that like the dark screen gameboy advance so have a great day good day. Wow that's deep lore. That's jeff grubb their stories in another universe. You're you're now filling in for fielding because that way you can dread that definitely got the bad habits. Though josh for north carolina writes in and says i recently started taking edibles and discovered that. When i'm high i get better at tetris. A few weeks ago i couldn't finish the normal mode and tetris effect connected. I try to playing high blew through the expert mode in one sitting. I started playing online. And i'm currently in the top. Fifteen percent tried playing against sober and it was a disaster. Self-medication is what this is called is like jon stewart in fucking half-baked you re look at the back of a two dollar bill on wheat yet or make back tetris. On is there anything surprising. Unexpected that either improved or diminished. Your skilled. i there was a time there. This is before. I was twenty one but there was a time there when i thought that there was a level of like one two three beers that i would be a little bit better at street fighter. Two and then efforts of point it was a very crass downhill nope Significantly worse than cannot do the moves anymore. but i i never measured. That always seemed like bullshit that we were just telling ourselves because we were sitting around drinking beer and playing street fighter two Yes i think. I was better. There was one time. I did not get very high very often. In ireland's it was hard to guess. And you only get like resin that you could burn. It was just too much work. But i would sometimes getting would call soap bar. Yeah it's like the worst of the worst live an island. It's hard to smuggle that stuff in the covered and glass and stuff to make it heavier. But why would do the whole thing. Were accidentally didn't put. Didn't you know two hours later. I was like oh not always well up some more and then like had like a yogurt was just like it might as well just darsch eating it and then like i did it every once in a blue moon but i always play quake three and i used to think i was really good at it but it was just like unbelievably intense like quake. Three is already like a super fun like it. you know. it's fast and wide screen. Do your f. o. v. to one twenty and then coupled with the fact that your entire being as buzzing it was just like. That's what i used to do for fun. Would on my own just place quake three But don't do that. Maybe don't do that. Three or do i don't know who makes you happy. Yeah edibles helped me enjoy earthbound for the first time. I always bounced off. I never played it when it first came out. And then i got it on the you or whatever and try to with edibles. I'm actually. I'm vibrant with this. This is a viable right. Yeah but but i didn't get better at earthbound. I don't think they're they're they're just based off my like personally but just observing others like there has to be some truth to like. Maybe it doesn't make you a better player. Maybe it loosens you up right like that. Why you see people take a shot before they fighter pilot. Yeah or they you know like yeah. Total like airline pilots like like. I totally understand. Like i play with five people who get stoned out of their minds where they play and they are ninety of hockey players absolutely exceptional hockey players. And like you know. I don't think the we'd maybe makes them better. But i think it lets them. Maybe concentrate better just sort of feel the game in a way that they can get when they're sober. I know that sounds a lot like chasing the dragon but You know there has to be some truth to if anything putting yourself anymore. Hyperfocused relaxed sort of state of mind. I think probably is what that means quieting the rest of the noise in your mind so yeah focus on losing a quake. Three i I went on a ten game winning streak playing the pokemon trading card game recently. Because i had opened up my third i i was making that they expecting. I don't care about your adp deck. I just got this lichen rock and your stomach i love. I love sports where they were booze. Involved like like like pool or south's smuggling would be like where they're all just like in watching the ninety s and they're all still smoking sport like this long sport where play for hours like like. You're still drinking enabled. That's when the sport becomes the thing you're doing while you're drinking right. Like i was when i when i played golf. Everyone just wants to smoke and get drunk. And you're like a golf will be there too but we're going out on the course to get stoned and drunk and play some golf awful. Jr where we do all get darts and a lot of british pubs and you're like british pubs are a small and then be like everyone's drinking all the time and then there's darks being bars. Only dr boards bars or like children who got it as like an eleventh birthday present or christmas present. Something like one would throw me or something. Yeah come more. Imos here Andrew in ohio writes in and says as of this email which he sends. Let's the on sunday. So this was. I guess during the steam sale skew skew. This a little bit as if this email. Three of the out of the top four global selling games on steam our first party microsoft games sea of thieves master chief collection and forza horizon four in light of game. Pass on. this is crazy right. It is kinda it's kind of speaks to you like hey this stuff still sells or the the number of people talking about game because they got exposed to ground game pass can lead to knock on sales plus they probably on sale pretty cheap which may be changing of the financial stuff. But i think you've also got some people that just love steam. Don't wanna touch the microsoft store though much that they're willing to buy anyway. Is this the new threshold for physical digital is digital to yes. Yeah yeah. there's there's a thing where like they were trying to get people to the donate organs. More agree to do that and they like if we just make it opt out instead of opt in it goes up twenty percent because people are just so lazy that they don't even really check stuff if people are already doing stuff one way. They're not gonna do it another way. Unless there's like some real catastrophic event that forces them off in another direction so yeah houston game passes like donating organs practice to say yep exactly. I didn't says a longtime listener. First time caller. I've noticed this. I'd i'd have to take because some people said this on twitter and i just Take this out on you chris. But you're the one who wrote in I noticed you complaining multiple times about the ps five stand and it being flimsy and off what you fail to realize that there's a giant screw included in the box. Attached with console is clearly stated in the quick setup guy that apparently nobody ran home. This so maybe you maybe didn't see the video. Where when you use the stand to set up the console her azzawi. There's a tiny little pocket for you to put the screw in and put it away because you can't use the screw when you lay down horizontally people what the fuck dammit does. Pockets for the screw. Yeah a little stand in the in the drawer and all the other screws. I've kept the put it for like lazy though. A lot of people are just going to throw that thing on the ground side was not used the standard all. Because it's a weird thing to have to like use a stand put a council on its side. It's a weird design. It is reality of it but like but thank you for writing in that is not how it works and it also who has room to stand it up vertically in an entertainment center this day and stay. Yeah not. i'm not running a retail kiosk over here. I think lays down All right Let's make this. We've two more here. According to spoke on the street. Wbz games montreal's working on a superman game seems likely they'd take away a bunch of his powers for some comic book reason and then slowly give them back to give the the to give the game some character progression. You think you could enjoy game. Where superman started out with his full power set and you've just wreck house on metropolis for sixteen hours. A game have to be hard to be fun. Scott from tacoma. Yeah but at the same time. I like superman difficult character. Maybe it's not difficult character. I maybe just people just do a bad job with it. And i don't know that i would do a good job making superman game but someone wants explained superman to me in a way. Think it was. It was his mom. Cancer b.'s casper some of road and it was like a very. It's probably the most beautiful explanation of why superman doesn't suck i bought into. It doesn't mean. I'm going to stop making fun of superman. Superman does still suck. But i i. Yeah like you just hit a and you win the game over and roll credit i. It's been like the incredible hulk game where like like. Oh like half the fun of the incredible game like smashing stuff. Because he's a big monster who smashes stuff like you. Can't that doesn't make sense for superman. So i then that's a good pitch for it but i don't i don't know what it is. I think he's five. Times is out after a little bit like that. Sounds okay whatever. Good luck with that greg. It's the speed. What if it's because like superman's problem is that he he. He has the ability to save anyone at any time but not every pets it. That's the thing like saying she's in stuff. Yeah rings and really do some speech challenges like yeah. I think glide him yeah just like a gliding challenges sixty four right. That was a good platform for that kind of idea. I think so. Yeah yeah what. If like there was just and forgotten i i just i don't know i i have never been a big superman fan for a variety of reasons but then the way he kana continually gets used in some of these stories. Like what if superman was bad like all right okay. When christopher reeve did it and grew five o'clock shadow and was drinking in that bar. It was very funny in that movie. Yeah that's amazing but Yeah i i don't know if you've ever managed just i think it's the super boring character is always have It's you you could. Could you make a good superman games. It was just you using those powers. Like sure. But like i guess. Most games have upgrade paths of some kind so at some point you would need to be like he found a diamond prism lens and put it over his eye and now he shoots a spread shot. He beam i. Don't know what the fuck it's just challenge that worth worth solving right like. There's better ideas that are more more easily fit with now games work than superman. And that's why when when they're gonna they're gonna make subaru in the bag again by a guy in suicide squad right that's like you're killing him so for creative restrictions are good because they breed innovation so like now now. I'm stuck in this idea of trying to get the stuff like almost like the thir the die hard with a vengeance mode and die hard trilogy right where it's it's about getting to the bombs on time almost crazy like what if it's like that in new york where it's like. Yeah sure would you get there. He actually would act you have to do is trivial like hitting the bomb but getting there like beating up the goons or stopping the purse stolen or whatever but like actually getting there. It's all about the speed get but then had stretched ends at like a forty hour game. That people would want to have a mobile game. It's you know right you to run and i. It's a runner. Yeah exactly and you just go. Go that way with oreo. I'm right you know. why not just give superman. Is it as easy as the bad guys are also superman's yeah off but there's three of them like zodda yeah. Do you just do your phantom zone style thing. what what what. If you get to like one of the places and then suddenly somebody like is going to recognize. You got to go. You got quick. Do like clark kent. I put the shit on a be linked to dance. Nothing weird here. Find a telephone box. Fluck up. we're figuring out here together. We're making against the sneaking dance. He just to see. Clark dan sneak. That's yeah that's just looks just like Superman for the atari twenty. Six hundred is the ultimate. Superman game makes cool noises Lex luther has a helicopter backpack. kryptonite satellites. That beep around the screen. You can pick up a helicopter. What more do you want. it did it already ticks. All the boxes wrap it up Remastered all right and last little thing here. Mike in los gatos wrote in. And this is great says in san jose. Apparently they're now cracking down even talking about where a sideshow might happen. Sideshows apparently become such a problem. That even plugging aside show will thousand dollar fine up to six months in jail as a longtime area resident. It just feels kind of like an attack on our way of life. Crackdown on sideshows. This way what do you think. That's jansher fan. She was silly terrible. Yeah i chose her as american as apple pie though somewhat more dangerous i will i will grant you that. Sometimes when i see sideshow footage and it is someone doing donuts while shooting a pistol in the sky. I i have gotten to an age. Now where i look at that and go like this is. I'm still split. That is one of the most. Awesome things i've ever seen and then my fuck. It's super not safe. Yeah maybe this'll stuff out of the way but like the donuts that's fine from. I came back from a trip and one of our lok like intersection onto the main road was like clean left. And was just like totally rubbers up. Its away but when. I'm looking forward to next week. 'cause fourth of july last year oakland is just absolutely insane. I drove ran fruitvale. And this was back when i had before my mustang mustang got stolen slide. The top down at it was just like they were launching the fireworks off the streets of driving down under a blowing up the coolest shit. Calloway for the fourth. I i'm not saying this doesn't happen on the east coast but this does. I'm just a quick searched. Made me realize that this could be. Maybe a more exclusive west coast behavioral sort of thing. I i'm not saying there aren't side. Shows a here on the east coast. I just don't think there are nearly as many and it is not celebrated in the way you three seem to love it. It's the old west coast car culture economy. There's enough room for shit out. Here is basically what maybe it is. I don't know i don't know was a sideshow. I think it's santa rosa up. Here that got busted their in the big lots parking lot just spin doughnuts during quarantine and As they shouldn't all those people should be wearing masks. This stupid like that was the thing i was like that's unsafe. They should all be wearing masks. The cars go doughnuts inches away from crowd of people that somehow i was like they got. It's fine but you know people get hit by cars. Doing donuts to is not just the. It's not just people shooting guns in the air. Not that habit. Yeah what's what's the what's the east coast equivalent of sideshows. Now i what i lived in maryland. Who was like. I think it was baltimore. Had like a kazan in oakland. There's a lot of the kids here. Right like dirt bikes right. There's the crew of like dirty. Yeah there's like motorcycles you got sled necks out there like new england. Area that guys on snowmobiles doing flips and riding on ice and stupid shit like that. Oh i don't live in the arctic but like yeah the the area like yeah you know like people doing dumb shit in the woods. I feel like that's the east coast equivalent shootings like like in the i guess You know in in the mountains up in new york and pennsylvania and all that stuff. I was baltimore hodge quad bikes four by fours or something there. Yeah there was like a like a crew of sure there. Yeah that sounds right down there. That sounds right. Yeah all right down well not to yourself. You're like you just need some pocket. I think it's a little bit too but not so much. I see that you know but your version is everyone just killing each other on the new jersey turnpike just like road rage. Yeah diner diner. That's open twenty four seven six hundred items with they're the best places on earth. Yeah i don't know like Yeah if you can look if you drive on the turnpike if you could drive on i ninety five you can drive anywhere so all right. Well that's going to do it for us. Thanks for coming to doing the show fun. Absolutely thank you for having me. This was a really good time. Yeah definitely have you back some time. And of course. We'll see thursday s debut episode of grub snacks snacks everybody. Yeah i'm gonna. I'm gonna on awesome all right.

But besides that i doing right i had a pretty good weekend got a new film today. Got my grade yet. I don't get my wife got a new phone today as well. Let's jump in get started because we have a lot to get to and then we'll start the show the way we always do with story of the week story gets the story of the week story week store.

Dlc dot ready dot com. We love hearing from you. We love your suggestions for stories. This week i gotta say we got a lot to get to and we're going to step through all of it but burrow. I'm curious where you'd like to start as our guests do we start with blitz. Kahn or would you start with the nintendo direct. Oh my goodness that's just going or let's go nintendo direct. I think all right yes a little earlier in the week. The nintendo direct lots of news. We'll step through all of it so the big end of direct surprise reveal was splatoon. Three that. I think is is the game that they wanted everybody to walk away excited about. We have a lot of other announcements in that nintendo direct. Let's start at the end. Start with their of mic drop moment announcing splatoon three was announced with a trailer. That was made a little understated to start kind of pedestrian. You know riding the subway to work in this dry or post post environmental apocalypse world splatoon three is evidently going to take place in but burrow. Were you a fan of the previous platoons. And are you excited for a splatoon. Three man i'm going to sound really negative for the nintendo section No actually i'm not unnoticed. The tune fan. I have played two small small handful of times. Not at my own house at a buddy's house when we used to be able to do that A year ago For for this platoon three to be the the mic. Drop moment as it were for the the the the direct kinda scratching my head. I know there's a huge audience for that game on not that audience i. I'm happy that people who are into that are going to get another one I'd like to see if they'd be finding if they just. I don't know something about the game has not clicked with me. I'm a play like overwatch which we can get to later and paladins. That's kind of my thing Sla tune just doesn't really doesn't do it for me so maybe three. Maybe three will be different. I don't know. I'm always inclined to check something out and take a look but yeah no. That's fair enough. I mean i think honestly it is targeted toward a younger sets. You know it's it's a multiplayer arena shooter. But done in a non-violent way. I think intentionally a nintendo wants to have it as skew younger perhaps But christian if memory serves. You're kind of into splatoon. For a little while. But i i also seem to recall nintendo indicating that they weren't really going to support splatoon anymore. They kind of abandoned the game. I i was a little surprised to see a third title in that franchise out. I felt like they turned their back on the splatoon franchise. I do love splatoon. I have my Unopened splatoon amoeba on my shelf. Right over that. I thought about like wheeling over to grab real quick. But as gotta move batman. And mario and it's going to hang out there for a little bit I really liked platoon. My daughters play a lot of splatoon. Two as well. And i believe if i remember. You're talking about jeff. Like nintendo kind of has a track record for the put out a game and it gets what two years of online support words like. Regular event updates Unless you're than the big news is new characters. But didn't they didn't they have. I mean i should have looked this up. I'm just pointing this out of my memory. And i could be wrong. But didn't they have some sort of organized play that they then cancelled for splatoon to and they weren't it was some sort of competitive professional employer making that up maybe chat remember. I remember splat splat fast and some of those tournaments that they would do like we're kind of done with those and may drop dates but that was kind of always. I think the plan or have been the plan to me. It didn't surprise. It doesn't surprise me that they would do that. And then do a new numbered sequel. I don't think splatoon three is surprising. The way overwatch to was surprising. For some folks where it's like. Oh without that was going to be the forever. Game that keeps getting built upon like rainbow six siege. I think a rainbow six siege to surprise folks at this point Nintendo seems to. Have you know done. Those numbered sequels a lot and platoon three. I don't know what it is. It's different than two right now other than maps. That trailer had the feels like the first game. Mean like a larger context about kind of the world. And what's happening in the two. Had the single player campaign that i thought was pretty engaging and got tricky towards the end but this trailer three seemed very serious at first and then it was like yeah but but they arrived in the city. And everything's different now and beyond that context. We really didn't get much information as to what would make this one different. I mean i guess some of the characters we saw are a little different. But you might know better than i but what would you want as a fan of splatoon in platoon three. What are you hoping for more modes that you can play all the time like salmon ron. I thought was really fun and refreshing in splatoon to like what i love about splatoon to is. How focused is When you go in you pretty much what you're playing and you don't have this diverse playlist players like. Oh i wanna play this but everybody else was playing this others. I can't get a robust game. Like pretty much played splatoon But i i would like to see a little more diversity in the types of matches and maybe if even is just rotation so it's like two months of this one month of this two months or something like that on saturdays they test out this. I think that could be really fun. Now i'd like to see them build on the Single player portion. And i think kind of like salmon iran. I'd love a dedicated. Pv interesting talk about it later. But i really liked tv. I've always loved horde mode What was it called in in halo. had there's two Firefight flight fight fight. Fight sounds right. Yeah fire teams are than you would firefight with our team horde mode so i have no idea just mode in splatoon would would would be pretty cool. A lago has just like i mean the aesthetic and the fashion in splatoon series has always been great. So i'd love to have more fun with that in in dress up my character even more You know give me all the animal crossing options right like. Let me go home. I would love that. I guess the other big news in zelda world is we're getting skyward sword h d which i actually really liked skyward sword. I know it's a low point for a lot of the fans and they've come up with some interesting ways to incorporate the old we remote motion controls because they had the the none shock and via the controller. As the your sword shield in that game. And you would actually swing your arm to create sword strikes in certain directions and a lot of the boss fights and puzzles were specific to having a specific kind of a slash. Either up and down vertically side or diagonally and they've come up with a way to do that in the context of playing it on the switch without motion control. they're also supporting the detached switch controllers for the switch that has detachable controllers. They had to come up with a new control mechanic because they removed that functionality. From their council which is bonkers. But i think it's pretty interesting. They're using the right analog stick to make you can input based on the direction you're pulling the stick is how you're swinging your sword kind of interesting What do you think of skyward sword. Hd is another one that kind of not not impressing you know while so. I do not have a a history with zelda. Best of the wild as the first game i ever beat and only dabbled in some of the other ones. I've dabbled in link to the past. I've dabbled in china I was really hoping to see when waker. That's the one that i want to play. That's that's kind of. That's the one i want. That's what i wanna play. And what's available on the. I think the were you but i am. Millions others owner. We use so that was kinda lost to me. I'm going to give this one a try. I'm glad that a and again like you mentioned they were kind of forced to give it a non moisture control because the switch lights they had to find. People played on that council as well. So i'm looking forward to this one. It's my backlog of things. I missed on nintendo platforms. A many many nintendo games are for me. I'm looking forward to it. I've talked to people in the community. Who said yeah. It's you know it's so. So what's it amidst motion rolls with this and that i won't use motion controls at all not the way i want a game. That's why didn't play much of the of the we you some looking forward to this. I'm definitely get this from the shot. I think it's a really strong zelda game for like the first third or or half and then you start backtracking allots and it forces you to go back to areas and kind of bogs down pretty heavily at a certain point and it feels a bit like a slog but then it picks back up and it has a great ending and a cool final boss fight but i. I like it more than i think most to do but i do. I think most agree with you that it's it's not the zelda game we're all clamoring or many people are clamoring to see remade or remastered a christian. What are you sit on the scale of skyward sword. Yeah i agree I really loved the. I like you said the third or fifth or whatever of the game it was and then it started to bog down with backtracking kind of reused assets in retreading areas in. It felt like a fetch quest within a fetch of fetch quests to kind of really pad the game. I don't use that term often but it skyward sword really felt padded to me on the back end which is unfortunate because i think there was a lot of really good stuff there if it could have been more focused it so it's not the again that i'd be clamoring for i kind of understand why it's the one they're doing 'cause we talked about. They did skyward sword in On we you. They've made on maker. We wake or sorry. Waker babe done Arena like twilight. Princess is one. That people were hoping foreign. I'd love to see like. I think we were hoping for a lot of things. One like the big full on re master of these older games like carina machar's economic version. Yes it feels like a missed opportunity though to with thirty fifth anniversary i mean they have these other ones that they've already made. I don't want him to go down the smash brothers. The the mario one it was kinda cheap ports but they kind of had a missed opportunity to bring multiple of these over to the switch and a in a big lecture. I think it would have been a smarter move. They probably are. I think they're coming. They're just not coming as a bundle. Maybe the sixty four. They'll do like a aquamarine amadora's bundle and then maybe they'll do you know a pre we you bundle like a game cube bundle or something like that will be wind waker and twilight so i kind of get it. I think to me the shocking part about this announcement was one sixty bucks. I know nintendo is gonna nintendo sixty bucks if felt like a lot coming off the the thirty fifth anniversary. Mario bundle which i felt like was a good bundle of three two great games and then Sunshine which i love. But i realize it's not a great game. I literally paid sixty dollars for super. Mario three d world last week and i have super mario three world for we use sitting on my shelf. It's visible to me the entire time. Playing the switch version but getting there like sitting there looking at me going. You already have me. But even that's i think a better value because it has boundaries fury like that's surprising about skyward sword it there's not like four links attached to it again in fury. Yeah exactly and the other thing that surprised me about it was. I'm gonna overstate this a little bit. But the links they went to kind of say it's good. It's like look look look. It's kind of like the wild stamina funny. I know you guys were super excited for birth. The wild do but there's parts of this. That are kind of like that. You could get a little bit of that. It's scratched rafting like crafting the game linke's in this one. I don't have followed. I think because. I haven't played it like this new to me so sixty bucks. It's more than i would want to pay for a rematch of any kind. Any remastered except for one that we'll talk about later that i can't wait to get my hands on that hopefully sixty bucks but oranje announced we'll get to it it. Yeah thank god either way sixty bucks for a new game for me good bad. It is what. I'll play sixty bucks. I'm going to beat it. Bugs called incentive. It's called value proposition. Yeah i yeah. I yeah i i'm i think more high on this game than than most but it is one of the big takeaways from this entire week between blitz khan and this nintendo direct is. I tweeted this is Video games time to make you know they take longer to make than you think. Always you know anything. That's good eggs longer to make you think it will and it's locked out really quickly because it's who cares but it's also longer take most of the time then the people making it think it's going to take you know so They come out there and they're like hey breath while to. I know he announced a long time ago. And you feel like. It's just a sequel. It's basically we're just using the same stuff. We already made him. Were throwing houston. It's so far away that not only. Are we not showing you any event right now. We're also throwing up a other zelda game to tide you over because it's not coming soon you know i think that was my takeaway and more power to an right. I want them to make a great game. I also stand behind my prediction. Which i think was this year that it's not going to call breath wild to because he called it the breath of the wild sequel which indicates to me. It's no longer called breath while team. So that was my prediction standing by it. I did go ahead on. Say you mentioned a announcing something and then it takes to come back out Metro card was a logo. I think a decade ago at this point now feels like and we're gonna get the switch pro before i gained comes out or the switch to. Yeah oh my goodness so. That's my question about. I ended up. I put out a newsletter after the direct sales like it's too long until dlc. I have thoughts. I need to need to email out right now. So i wrote up a whole little thing about the direct and kind of by my which you can find a tiny letter dot com slash criticize or whatever but the thing. I want your chris. Whatever it's all Do we wish where we are now. So with hindsight and all that do we wish that nintendo had an announced breath of the wild goal in the sequel or metro. Prime for yet or we haven't needed needed to say something about metro-dade. I feel like they needed to say. Hey we're working on a metro because there was a question mark about whether or not they were working on the metro and the idea that it a prime metro prime for. I think that's a good thing that's cool it's like hey we're we're going to prime four calm down it's going to. It's going to be here. The breath the wild to thing didn't need to be announced in my in my opinion. I think it could've been a cool surprise. Everyone knows they're working on another metro game around it. I mean another a zelda game. There's universe in. Which nintendo isn't always working on another met Another zelda game which you know they are always working on another zelda right it just takes a really really long time and that's because these games tend to be sean defining masterpieces so yeah it takes a long time to craft something like that so i personally would have preferred. Just don't even mention it until it's much closer. But that's that's tends to be how i am about everything so now i think i agree completely. The metro thing i was one of the ones clamoring. Give me a new metro game. It's one of my favorite series from nintendo. So okay cool. We'll make one. They didn't have to go five years early. They could have waited. Somebody say you know. We're making one. But i do agree that say. Hey we haven't forgotten what the series it's not dead. We're not gonna do that. weird gameboy. Whatever that game wasn't came out on the three s a couple of years ago. I guess more than the ds veteran was it. The ds is not far trade. Find mentors. I think something that you know. Hey we're sorry about that thing. We'll make real metro game but like jeff said does the thing that's kind of given the making new mario game to if if you weren't sure they don't have to give us a title or it's a sequel or making a brand new one or jsoc dry d do the thing give a six month lead time. Hey we're making a new one and it's out in six months like that's announcement. Not hey there's a sequel in the way and we have no idea when you're going to see it 'cause then it just now every year you're just this note issue not it's just yeah now give it. Give it to me and six months out okay. Cool new games coming out which should be all announcement for all games. I the i mean we've been all staunchly in favor of that on the show for a long time but there are other factors to consider marketing and awareness and all those campaigns that you know we're not experts in so there's a lot of people who listen to zero video game podcasts. That need to be informed of these things well in advance so they you know Okay lots of other stuff in nintendo direct Bird you have another favorite. I'll list off the other. Things that were mentioned are the marquee things that were mentioned. Mario excuse me. Mario gulf super rush yes project triangle which looks fascinating There's a demo out now. A star wars hunters which was teased. We don't really know much about the ninja guidon master collection which is a collection of all the guy in three d. games on. Switch me topa which is bringing back another older game Legend amana is getting a master stubbs. The zombie which kind of out of nowhere coming to switch a no more heroes three got a date for august twenty seventh game called neon white was announced and knock out city. So of those borough. You have a particular favorite or a couple of favorites. Yeah i would have said the star wars hunters. I'm a huge star. Wars fan darth maul behind my head over there. But we don't think about the game it was almost. It was almost a metro thing. It's like hey we're making a star wars game that licenses out of e as han nother style was game coming to the switch. I don't really know what that game is. So what's mario. Golf is probably the one that has made the most intrigued. I like golf games. Like mario golf. Mario the the super rush that mode that they kind of show demos off seems interesting like the. The title rushed to the thing that seems interesting. That's like a cool spin on a on a golf game so for me. That's probably the one that has been most intrigued. Outside of fatherly than skyward sword thing. Which i'll get to some point. Yeah yellen star. Wars hunters came up. I immediately went over on a nintendo platform. Is this monster hunter with a star wars skin. Is that what they're going to gonna run around. Hunting down ran core monsters and banta and is that. What is that what they're making. That could be incredible and then of course. It doesn't seem like that's what i want now. Yeah i walk star wars. I'm available army but it sounds like it's going to be a third person. Arena shooter or multiplayer focused extensive zanga and a tree to play. And it's also coming a mobile. Like i can make recommendations. It's mad really weird right. Because i do think and i think justifiably so often free to play has a connotation to it But also free to play shooter on mobile currently describes fortnight pudgy call of duty. leaked rumored to be soon. Apex legends. like those are great games. Great games so. I don't know when that conversation changes but i do think some studios and a lot of mobile games a lot of free to play games rightfully so are awful. Yeah this announcement. I kinda went like star wars. I'm going to. I don't know yes. We'll so christian. Do you have a couple on there. That interests mario golf. I love mario golf. I love the old Gb games especially the camelot games in kind of scratched that it over the years with Most recently golf story on switches fantastic. I think it's available kind of everywhere now. The great indie in the three d. s. mario golf wasn't the strongest in the franchise in my because didn't have that kind of robust rpg campaign almost to it. But it looks like this is going to have it. I liked the rushmo. They showed the kind of the speed Challenge because i really have fond memories of playing mario golf on with friends and hopefully we can get back to that again and playing on the couch or maybe just with the family but i i really love the mario golf games. I've always loved hotshots and though style games and i'm intrigued to see how accurate the Sorry check the Joy con tracking is going to be feeding us golf club. 'cause with the remote plus playing like tiger woods and stuff like that back in the day was a lot of fun a lot of fun so i'd love a zany silly mario golf again where i can also weaken wagle our way around. I think it could be really great. Yeah and i've really enjoyed tennis from what a couple of years ago. Now on on switch was really fun and exceeded my expectations. Epic babble. yeah forever yeah. I gotta say that project triangle just aesthetically completely captured me and i checked out the demo which is is already a cool right. It's like that two. Yes a graphics or whatever and it feels like the next level beyond october like they're trying to go further with it. It's it's even more beautiful. As far as i'm concerned but i did that. I like that you know. The background is the soft focus. Very almost painter lee or or realistic but the foreground is sixteen. Bit pixel graphics is it's a it's a cool idea and i think really jumps off the screen and and feels different. And i don't know i'm drawn to that aesthetic very much so If the game is exciting. I'm i'm into it you know. I liked tactic games a lot. So i'm down for that in a huge way. Yeah but other than that. I think not a huge nintendo direct for me personally as far as the things that i get excited about from nintendo but you. It seems like they've got a lot of stuff happening. It feels like another year switch. Console keeps selling like hotcakes and nintendo doesn't really even need to give the you know the big tent pole stuff every one or two per year and switched keep selling like crazy and i think a lot of that is because they smartly embraced the indie scene. You know having a physical copy of eighties as part of this This direct announced. I think it's smart right. This is this is a game that should be in the hands of people that won't download stuff from the store. That only buy stuff from game stops and best buys. It's a game. That's worthy of treatment. And i think a lot of a lot of the greatest experiences i've had on switch are from indie games so i guess nintendo doesn't have to do a lot but it doesn't seem like they're doing a ton of really must have big triple a. Can pull stuff anymore. I think a lot of the moment coming to the console now are people who maybe haven't had it. I don't know if it's like. Pandemic purchases like people are getting into gaming wanting to connect more with folks. But if you look at sales. Mario kart eight deluxe still skyrocketing along mar animal. Crossing is still up there like they have those tent. Poles nintendo tent poles remain temples forever and when they stopped being ten polls released them and their ten dollars again. Exactly no kidding. It also helps. You can buy this rich in stores without meetings. So it's availibility probably probably helps might my overall takeaway. I think from the direct was kind of depressing in. Not i feel as if because i liked the games that's that's the mario's zelda's donkey kong metro cards. Those those bring me to ten intendo the other stuff. The indies and the multi platts. Those are great. I'm to play multi-platinum on another platform on a plate on the pc or the xbox playstation and the indies a great. I like the indies. I don't play that many of them a lot of them. End up coming to game pass. So i'll wait six months in pain on game pass for free Essentially what. I felt when it was all like man. I'm just not nintendo's target demographic anymore which at least not not right now anyways not this year not last year and my kids are both too young to play. They play mario. Kart eight with all the the enhancement. Things on the things auto move stuff like that. So without exception of of that game. I just i don't touch my switch. I don't think i talked to my switch last year. More than a handful of times to the kids over to play like jack box that when we when we have friends over. But that was how i that's how the end for me was like. Oh yeah no. This is going to be another year. I don't really touch switch unless they have a surprise announcement later on around the three timeframe maybe and they say oh yeah. We've got something coming out this year but they gave a lot of release dates while they get a lot of twenty twenty one coming twenty twenty one coming out this year. Not me fair enough. You're right to point out though it's only february. We're still certainly an opportunity for more things. And i suspect we will see more things coming to switch from nintendo specifically in this calendar year. And we'll probably hear me. There seem to indicate the dull gives more information about breath of the wild to or whatever it's called before the end of this year. So maybe you're around that june time period. We'll see more of that game. I don't think it's coming out this year but Yeah hopefully there is stuff that that entices you specifically and i think there are a lot of people that were excited about a lot of stuff here but i'm i'm definitely more in that camp than not right. There's nothing i'm gonna play from this list personally. But i think it's a strong showing it was. I thought it was a fairly strong showing diverse showing. Lots of different kinds of games on. I appreciate that nintendo direct but also. That's good like too many games. It's yes like if you're telling me there's a big announcement and there's not a game dying to play in the next four months good. 'cause there's twenty others and i'm dying to turn up and let's let's let's move on then to Bliss con line. But i think our first sponsor squarespace if you have any reason to make a website.

Ten percent off are talking bliz con line as they were insisting on calling it this is i think the first blitz con ever to be completely remote jank. Oh i thought you were going to say not the first one without me. It's the only the second one without me. I missed one when my my son was born. But that's the only bliss con that. I've missed a bit of named him. Blitz con kananga. I could have bullet blizzard con nada. That would have been. Oh jeez blizzard for shortstop itunes. Yeah missed it. I missed it next. Branding missed it. The next time. I have two kids are both. I ruined it anyway. This one completely free all virtual no people bliss con. I'm i'm a huge fan of bliss as an event. It's one of my favorite things to attend. Like i said i. I've gone every single time. They've had one except once and the reason is because it is a really positive place mostly and it's about people coming together and celebrating these games. It really didn't feel yes. There was always announcements and excitement in the opening ceremony and that was cool but it never really felt like a big pr events. It felt like a gathering of people and if fans and it was about meeting up with your guild mates. It was about playing games together. It was about going to these cool events in the concerts and it felt more like a party with a bunch of people that had shared interest than it did a pr event. And even when. I was covering it from a pr perspective. I was coming in as a person who talks about these things going to the pressroom etc. It's still felt like that to me. So removing the element of people actually congregating in a place. I thought could definitely have marred it but actually thought they did a pretty fair job of keeping the focus on interactive these. Qa sessions that. They they still had even remotely having the developers put together these wonderful packages and and talk about the games as they have in past years with detail and specificity. I thought i thought blues con line. Twenty twenty one actually came off pretty well. Their front end portal was really great and i loved that it was free to everybody. But let's talk about some of the announcements. I think the big two announcements are diablo. Two resurrected i want it and hurting crusade classic. These are the to both had sort of leaked ahead of time. But those are the two big game reveals. There's a lot of specific nuggets about games World of warcraft. Shadowlands expansion is getting its next big content update called chains of domination which advances the story in that game looks pretty cool We got updates on diablo four and one new class. We're going to get the rogue in diablo four which looks insanely cool And we got this This blizzard arcade legends game which is repackaging very very old games from the nineties that blizzard made in its in. Its early years in fact that was put out already. It's available was announced in put out in the same moment. But but again. I think the the big marquee announcements jaba to resurrected burn christie classic. Both games now. This was the thirty fifth anniversary. Three three thirty thirtieth thirtieth thirtieth anniversary of blizzard. So i guess it's appropriate that a lot of these are looking back but burrow. What do you think about these. Both of these products definitely backward-looking remasters so to speak of a one case remastered of old games And not much a you know. They kept saying over and over. We have lots of stuff we're working on. We're going to talk about those in a future time but this was a very much a backward looking event what do you what do you make of it. The absolute highlight of my entire weekend was the confirmation of dabba to resurrect that. I don i. I couldn't begin to guess the amount of hours. I've played diablo two going up. Thousands is low balling. i mean. i've. I've spent years of my life playing that game. What you're doing when you were playing zelda. Exactly has so much time i really. I can't wait for this. I i probably wanna play this more than i wanna play diablo before as as much. I really am a huge huge fan of to. It's just one of those games. I have a lot of great childhood memories of. I was probably in my early teens. I think maybe maybe a little younger than not quite sure. But i i played all the time all the time and just to be able to revisit that on on on current hardware wide screen at sixty fps four k visual control. Our even on. I'm gonna to be the one that's speaks. Blasphemy here. console diablo. diablo like controls. Y'all blow you're not really. It's not that it's not that blessed remake i was actually because the inaccurate blitz con. I downloaded double three today and was mexican allen and i have it now on every platform. I have on xbox. Ps four and switch. Because just because there's no cross progression which they announced is is a thing so that you have to buy it every time but that's that's fine Cross cross progression not cross play. Which i think is a missed opportunity. I'm sure there's a million legal reasons why they couldn't do that from the different console manufacturers or whatever that's for me that's the big one But no playing on playing on the controller is fantastic. In fact when i was talking on. Pc today the fact that i couldn't dodger away from the environmental attacks made me upset. That's probably the best edition. Think that the council the controller brings to diablo three so i am looking forward to see how they do that with their control scheme very different. You don't have all the different you don't have one through four left and right. Click you get to two abilities now. You gotta change them up on the fly. So i'm looking for to see how they do that for for. The i watched a lot of the the commentary the the developer notes on that one specifically and get to watch a lot of the other ones. Because i was taking care of the kids over the weekend so bookmark to watch later. But it was interesting watching how they talked about how they were trying to make a game that was built to run at twenty five frames a second and how abilities and buffs tied to the framework is built into the game and so they have to build sixty fps version. That runs on top of twenty fps in the twenty fps. Version of the game has to be running other would have to you know. We'd been a remake a completely redo and it's they got some wizards over that blizzard figure out how to make sixty fps version of a twenty five game while keeping the twenty-five fps game. Running in fact simultaneously seems like starcraft remastered or whatever that was called where you can toggle between them. So i live on the fly. It sounds like you'll be able to toggle back and forth between the new prettier version and the old pixel version which is a critical points to what you're talking about where both are running concurrently Which is it's it's. It's pretty wild that this is a game. I have vivid memories of buying. I remember so specifically. The moment i went to fry's electronics. I sadly was already graduated from college and living in los angeles But i i went to fry's electronics and purchased and decided. It was going to be the game that i was gonna play next and it completely took over my life for months. I remember that summer. Just like playing diablo. Two nonstop constantly. It was is weird period. Where i wasn't really covering video games actively but i was as so i was able to sorta just Stick to one game and that was the game and it just not many many many many hours of diablo. Two very very fond memories of that game so i. I'm also excited about this question are you. Are you excited for resurrected. Yeah i'm very excited for it. It is it's a goat right. it's a goat level. Game diablo. drew is ago level. Game i am. I'm very curious to see as you know. We are all old on this show. Dow new folks coming to it. Experience it because As i mentioned it it's different than three. You know it's different than good three now. You know it was very different than original three to change and things and then all those the mornings change but like it's a very different game in. If memory serves a much more difficult game like three. I remember being even when it first launched like pretty easy just to kind of roll yellow to like i was grinding times. It was like i'm going to get some carpal tunnel here. This is going to be. I'm to redo this. I'm not powerful enough. I can't run through the campaign so to speak. So i'm curious to see how fans react to that because it has that new coat of paint on it. I think it may be is more to some people. Do you think these games are really played by people who never played them. I suspect that that's a really tiny fraction of the audience. Who actually buys these. I think they really are nostalgia. Machines and everything. That's fine. i'm not. I'm not judging it for that. I just. I wonder how many people actually play this as their first time playing the abloh to. I don't know it's weird because it's a pc game. I don't wanna just compare this nintendo but like you know it is my daughter's first time playing galaxy like brand new. They love it. It's incredible i love just running around youngest runs around on the on the globes cackles last year. And i'm like do something. But i think there is some of that because it is going to be. We're talking about it. I think mainstream outlets are gonna talk about streamers playing it so i think there's a really good chance especially in the absence of diablo four Coming out anytime around it. I think there's a good chance people will pick it up. I think the fact that it's going onto consoles as well for the first time an audience to people who like may like diablo three in its current ordinance original form or whatever and to say hey you know what i want to go back and play. Where did this is three card from. Because one was on playstation one that I vaguely remember the boxer So putting putting such classic game on on martin consoles Opens up a whole new demographic people who don't have we don't wanna play games on. Pc you give to control the support. the right price tag instead. You know what. It's a forty dollar game. I think it's more dollar game Then you know what. Hey it's way. I can check it out i think I mean yes mostly. it's a nostalgia play. I'm getting a immediately. i'm gonna stream it immediately as you mentioned But you know my wife never played it and it's going to be a game that if i can she plays dabble free with me on on this rich if i can convince her to go back and play to going to for sure so i mean i think this exposes my newest latest best tendencies because i came out of bliss khan really excited about the four and looks great as much as two it looks. It looks amazing that they showed in the deep dives the first of all the rogue looks sick but also the the world stuff and how. They're pushing that angle of of really making the game about exploration i mean diablo's the past randomly generated maps by nature needed needed to explore them to find things and there were certain dungeons and things. You would find it by searching the maps but this one the way that they have the added mounts. And you're blown out the size of things and you're you're it's basically like assassins creed but done from top down perspective with diablo on top of it you know. You're you're going to these camps here liberating camps in order to create new new way. Points that you can move through and it just looks so awesome. The talent trees and the way that they are adding customization to everything you can completely customize how you play your character how your character looks. It's like i want that game so bad. I'm so excited for four. i'm overstating it but like it. Almost this is an overstatement. Looks like they built a whole other game on top of diablo that open worlds. And then you go and diablo and then you come out and you blow and then over here. Then there's this instance dungeon but by instance. I mean that's fifteen hours. You're so good it looks. It looks incredible. The rogue that they announced looked. I watched you mentioned the amounts. The the dismount that broke out that animation that that ability is just. It's just random. Zeros rain all my and then being able to do for the work specifically they say oh well you can imbue all your abilities with shadow or poison or fire or ice. Oh my goodness talk about an overpowered character out of the gate. That's going to be amazing. That looks really good but again time to make and it looks like diablo for ain't come in anytime soon. I mean think. I think that's one of the reasons we're getting diablo. Two resurrected is just like nintendo's doing. It's a stopgap to tied people over to get them excited about four burn crusade classic. I'm assuming neither of you guys are wild people you go. I love all my goodness. I'm not paying it now. 'cause i just simply don't have the time and i don't wanna pay a subscription fee for a game that i can't play when i play. Well i don't play to have fun. I played. I was when i when i did play. I played for eight and a half years straight. I played when i was deployed. I brought a laptop with me. I found a way to make the internet work. Why could play a range. I paid a warlike for the eighteen month deployment a radio with my guilt. Back in the states i was addicted is not the word i should use on a podcast but i was for every i was addicted to this game. I love my hair game of all time day. Mortar warcraft is my favorite game of all time and is the pinnacle of work reading. It just is for me. Second only to i think. Honestly there's something special about bc. Right i for me. It's the same thing i played vanilla. I played my character to sixty and vanilla. I loved it. I was so in took it to such a new level and so many of my favorite memories of that game over. Its fifteen years that i've been playing. It are from burning crusade it a very special expansion and you know i think the the character that endured for me was my drew deny paladin that i still play to this day. I don't i don't play my vanilla. A night elf. Druid anymore but i still sometimes hop on my old palley especial expansion. And i think it's interesting that they could have handled the classic I guess branch of releases. They're doing wild classic which is a time. Clap capsule of how. The game was when vanilla while i launched. You know when that happened. I was like what are they going to do. Are they going to step through the expansions. Are they going to different way. And expand these games it with new in new directions. Are they just going to keep them locked down. Because it's about not moving forward right that the moving forward is what people were rebelling against when they wanted those old vanilla servers. But it's an interesting philosophy that they're using to allow you on the same subscription to play classic vanilla while or play a burning crusade. And you can. You can pay to have your character cloned and exist in both places so you don't have to you don't have to take a character into burning crusade if you don't want to you can pick and choose. It's an interesting option. That is giving players. Are you excited about doing this. Are you a classic player. You happy to to revisit those old times so when classic first came out. I installed it right away and Yeah i played Classics longtime the levels. Does it's classic by design. I remember sixty for the first time. I can take exactly where i was. When i hit sixty i might Rogue l. for the very first time i ever forget that moment i paid it for awhile again. It's time it's a time thing I have two kids fulltime job. A wife to entertain playing while classic is difficult because again. If i'm playing. It's because i wanna get to level sixty and i wanna go. Do you know core. I want to go do a ixi. i want to go do all these classic raids at the time. I just don't have burned crusade however it that might might force. My hand might be something. That when. I'm when i'm not doing the streams that might be my my new game to kind of play on weekends or whatever my kids go to bed daddy's gonna level up. I'm gonna. I'm gonna go down because this has to happen now. It is interesting that this this week between these two huge events would the majority of the things are old games. That are that people want to visit. And i think we're in this period. I would have been in the period for a while where we've been in the age of remakes in remasters for for a while now but it's interesting to me that that's where video gaming is to a large extent but i will also say there was a lot of new stuff announced christian. I wanna talk to you specifically about overwatch to because it made no appearance in the In the opening ceremony no mention of it almost whatsoever but during the deep dive which. I hope you've got a chance to watch. There was a lot of new information including a very robust single player mode or or co op mode that. They've talked about before. But i think they showed. There will be hundreds and hundreds of missions and mission types. Did you get a chance to see any of this christian i did. I watched all of it. The twin overwatch. Yeah the tweeter. Put out with like yeah. I'm very excited for overwatch. To ninety two. Forget it exists until it's months away from coming out 'cause like and i'm gonna make some overwatch fans upset right now. I think i. I sit here and i have my death at our over watch mouse. I was very into overwatch. At the beginning. I played a lot lot lot lot lot lot lot. Felt like thought fell off and so i understand that a lot of the hardcore overwatch community is a little upset right now because this even in deep dives there's no attention paid to overwatch the memes like it's dead game. There's nothing added or announced. That's coming try being a heroes of the storm. Fan were yes that to announce her live. That hurt really bad i need. I need to acknowledge that. I realized that there are people out there every day playing over watch it is their life they have their team and and i get it I'm not trying to offend anyone. But i'm super excited for overwatch to it. Looks like to be adding all of the things that i want to see in A game especially like a numbered sequel when they showed off the skill trees in the deep dive and how the miser character and by the end of this and they did the example of soldier. Seventy six who has who's healing stem is now range. But then also has an area fact that pushes enemies away so he was running across a bridge and he pushes some people off and other down below. And like snowplow build. Yeah the snow just that alone. Being able to area fact in move someone is radical for how that game is played for a character. Like seventy six where it's like. Yeah right on the shield and you can you can manipulate pinpoints in that game with certain characters but to have it. Be someone like seventy six. And i can't even imagine what tracers going to be. It's fascinating to me. So i understand why this game could take awhile. I think one of the developer said like we have a lot of this done but also there's a good chance a lot of what we're showing. You might not come out still tuning this but the single player stuff looked interesting. I love how they're expanding the world. I really likes. The new looks for the character some more than others but as a as a big macree fan i loved that they showed for mccreesh kind of updates and i think it's doing a lot of smart things i understand. I get that it hurts at it's a sequel in that. It's not rambo succeed towards not this forever game but it looks like they're putting in the work to add the stuff that gets me really excited. I just wanna out wake me up when it's four months away from release. Yeah yeah yeah. I mean that's how it is with a lot of this stuff. This week was these games are gonna be awesome. They're not near. They are not coming out anytime soon. But they're not near oughta either a takata all right.

It's time to talk about the games that we have been playing burto. What has been on your playlist. Can we talk about how good the end of. yes. I appreciated it our previous games. But i agree and i'm really mad. I didn't have finished hitman three. I just finished it. Last tuesday and that last level is really not hitman level that last level that very very last little bit. It's so different from the rest of the game. I had such an amazing time with that level though it was just a ton of fun. Hitting three is amazing. I'm i'm probably going to go back and buy an import one or two into the three engine. So i can get better understanding of how that game ends and also just to have more sandboxes to play around in. That game is really it's really. It's really fantastic Finished broad spoiler broad spoiler broadsword abroad rod. Rod hit man. Three has an incredible secret ending which we haven't experienced it. I recommend pulling it up and at least watching it. I gotta google broad spoiler over at his all how oh man on now after then game is really extraordinary it just the the breadth of every single level the the number of different options. You have all the time and every moment you have so many options. There's so much to discover. There's so many nooks and crannies that have wonderful things waiting to not to just discover but to provide new options for you. you know. that's what's so extraordinary about these games. That i have discovered having been a much late to the party. Fan of the hitman. Experience is that it really is about providing new options. And i've said many times that video games options are what make them fun making decisions making choices. And the fact that this game constantly gives you a huge array of choices and then the reward system is about providing additional choices for you. And that i don't know of another game. That really does that most games. The reward system makes the choices that you've already been making more powerful or or more potent but this actually provides new gameplay opportunities when you explore when you discover and that is pretty cool it really creativity go ahead. I'm sorry yeah. No i say one of my favorite things you you go through your first of all. I find out that i'm not creative at all. I absolutely followed the like planned missions that you said okay. We'll not go. Do this go do this. I did that all the time. Unless i screwed up and then it was like okay. Well now i'm going to get a one star on this. Because i'm finishing the mission not restarting and everybody is now the target. I don't get them all down. It's basically yeah. I turn every level into the last one as But what. I like so much about it. Is you know you go through your follow one of the missions or however you want to do it and the more you explore the more you take time playing through each level you beat it you get your score like okay. Now you've locked this. You can start here. You can start here you can start here. You can start with because you've found. You can start with this gadget you can. You can have this item already hidden in this location so when you need it you know it's already and then the next time you play it even if you wanna to do the same story beats again you would still be different because of how you infiltrate the mission. It's just it's just so good. It's fantastic i. I had a really really glad that three naked with a lot of people got like press media bumps. I think largely because of the second level and it's easy to write about an encapsulate kind of at knives out clue style level but i think what this most recent trilogy struggled with for some people is at. It's like what kind of game is it. You know it's a third person action. Stealthy i don't really like those. Not that i mean is that yeah but it's nothing like that. Well what is it. Well you want to get caught okay. But but you gotta plan. I don't really like that. I just want what it is that but it's not. It's hard to kind of wrap. But i think for me hitman and three d mario games in a few others are the type of game where jeff you mentioned like how rewards you these games almost reward you by finishing a level by the sanca played again. It's like you get through it once you get the shine at the end and you're like beat that level and the games like night in it. This is the real level. And you're like oh that's level. Well i i'm not motivated hugely two replay the levels. I mean i am a bit but not that is not even really what i'm talking about i i i'm talking about the moments where you'll go. You know you'll overhear a conversation of somebody talking about you know. oh well. the thing is on the fritz. And then you go and you find the thing and it's like oh you can open this if if you've got a crowbar crowbar working i find that or you know you'll see if there's a fusebox now all you need a few who knows what will happen and you overheard a conversation about how precarious this thing was leaning on the top of something. It's like ooh. I definitely want to do that. It's constantly revealing new creative ways to do the thing even in the context of the single run of the level and that to me is. What's so exciting is that it. Is this massive sandbox. And i think to your point christian about people describing it and going that was totally me and even when people are like plus really puzzle game. And i'd be like doesn't even really sound better. I like puzzle games but it just a puzzle. I it just makes me feel like oh. I have to figure out the stealth route between here and there and it's a puzzle and i don't want to do any of that. So like all the descriptors that i'd heard applied these games. I actually give him a this new version of hitman Did them a disservice. It's not it's all of those things and none of those things. It's exactly that yeah it's You mentioned it. You know walking around the space and if you happen to be in the space you'll happen to hear this conversation. That will happen to lead you to the sting and if you didn't go there you're not going to go find the thing that can fall in in crush the target. You're gonna find a completely different. And i paid it. In a couple of my friends have played it and even following the main story missions. Like i mentioned getting the all the way we got there was entirely different because we just went through different paths and heard different conversations or you know picked up a document whatever that said. Oh well you can go do this. Oh well i'm gonna go. I'm gonna try that. And if i you know it's just it's just a wonderful game and Before that i beat cyberpunk that that's a great game if you have a pc that run it Now playing a hall. I'm really late to a lot of games. I play logging late kind behind. These games not really november. Three months ago i feel like a slight. I feel like compared to everybody else. That i know in my circles. He's like oh yeah no. We beat the wiki came out. I have no responsibilities. Must be nice. I'm i'm just now getting through started with assassin's creed mahala. i am. Probably maybe ten hours in to that game. Which i believe is the first two percent of the game from what i've heard on a never ending game and then I play much random stuff. On the on. The mega megahertz twitch channel stream. Everything in anything. We just did overcook to with the community last week. We did halo. Multi-player we do. We do vol hala which is a nice community game. That's kind of where matt so for me. I'm playing assassin's creed but then i'll play. Whatever is voted on. You know. I do a little bit into cyberpunk. Twenty seventy seven because you know. It's a game that i bounced off of pretty hard and i think christian did as well so we haven't talked about it in quite a while which is really hard to even fathom with how anticipated this game was for both of us and for the world at large and now you know here we are just a few months later. I i don't even think about it. There's no there's no brain space that it's taking up. Can you real quick here. Before i want to get to this too but on cyberpunk it happened as i was just going for a walk last night and mike the pot sometimes my phone The podcast app opened. And i had restarted my phone and started replaying the last podcast. I was listening to which was actually you jeff on. What's good games and your episode. Was you guys talking about cyberpunk. And i forget who it was but you are entering someone who's like because it was about the leak about physical copies being said i take the game out. I just wanna play right now bugs and all like i'm not excited. It and i was just like your thing to randomly pop into my head like two days ago. That's funny what you wish kidding. I've enjoyed it. I got forty plus hours of gameplay bugs and all i actually have we put up a review for if we put up you specifically because i had gotten through it after patch one point one whatever and it was kind of a like. We're going to give you the game. After the fact with the bugs in its current state after it's been out for two months and had big january patch and i i liked it. It's not the game that i that i thought it was going to be a wanted it to be. Even the story went in places that i didn't expect it to go into but i i really enjoyed my time with it. I mean after the first big patch that one point one patch a lot of the The crashes stopped. I mean that was the big thing that i have to deal with. I paid it on pc so with some of the. And i have. I haven't ticks cards so like d. l. s. two point. Oh crank thing up to to fourteen forty. I was getting sixty frames a second. I mean i was looked gorgeous. Had some traced going on and besides some total harbor crashes. Eighteen inches crashed to my desktop. It would crash my outright and it was only game. That was doing that. But once i got through once i realized. Listen i'm not gonna wait for patch. Two point oh or whatever you know the game of the year addition if they have the gall to call it that at some point i wanna play now. I waited for this game. I the game run stable for the most part on pc minus two crashes so i play through it and i really enjoyed it. I played kind of stealthy character. I used a lot of the quick access. I very rarely fired my weapons at all Fact i got to a point where i won't discussing spoilers got you'll point late in the game. Where because of the bill that was using an in kind of how cyberpunk let you use the creek and the camera system which the chemists some extent of the player so if you can see the an enemy through the camera you can hack that enemy and based off my particular play style i was. I was taking entire rooms of enemies out in two or three abilities. It felt really overpowered. It felt kind of discussing at the end. I feel like if i had gone in with guns. Blazing ability or build. Some of those comments scenarios would have taken much much much longer have been much more difficult. I would have died a reset. And no i really enjoyed the game. The ending was not at all what i expected. I won't get here. But i think it's a game. I think there is a very good game to behead when they finish it when cyberpunk gets around to finishing the patches getting the bugs worked out allowing console players to play the game at frame rates frame rates. That aren't you know double to twenty five friends. The second frame rates now. It's a great game. I really liked it. i will play it again. I think after the whatever patched is maybe in a year or so pay the again go through it with a completely different build and make different decisions. Because i feel like those decisions had an impact. And i won't know until i played again or talk to people who have had a chance to play the game and make the decisions and see what endings other people get. I don't. I don't know anybody else that i've talked to you. That's played it in being yet. A few megadike community members out of work in their way through it also on pc. So i'll have those conversations. When his time i suppose but i liked it a good game. It's not you know the genre defining game that i really was hoping that a city project i was going to deliver i think maybe they went bigger than maybe they should have after which is three which is a huge huge game and i think maybe they tried to go. The step between which is to a three was. Yeah massive right and i think they tried to do that again. And maybe this one should have should've should've cooked a little bit longer. Sunshine is a good gay. It's not sixty four. It's not galaxy. i get it. It is a good game developers that make goats can occasionally make good game. I guess they all can't be they all can't be a good game that i i almost jeff almost play again this weekend. It's still on my laptop at sitting there. And i i was feeling the earned never going it again. Christian never playing any gold plate again. Let them fix it as a solid seven and a half out of time for that. I'm michael higher than that. I think it's a very good game that right now. Very few people can play. And i think that's a big progress in a world of it feels like seven and a half of tennis. I couldn't get it done for. But okay you know i i i can respect that and i'm glad you enjoyed it for for sure for me going into it. I was like you know i. I don't think i'm gonna enjoy the tone of this world. But i'm certain that the mechanics are gonna bring me bring me the joy and i'm gonna love the way. The interactions of everything. All the systems fit together and for me. The sad reality is you have to love the tone right because the systems the systems aren't great and that to me was the biggest disappointment. I thought there's no universe in which project read isn't gonna nail the systems interactions and it's gonna feel it's gonna. It's gonna be a really interesting. Mechanical world like how things the upgrade paths fascinated by all of the interaction of all. This stuff's going to be really cool. And i will move through it and kind of be able to. The tone will be more palatable. Because i'll be enjoying this. The interactions so much and it turns out that the interactions i think are a little flat. The systems don't really work together. That great it doesn't. It's not doing anything special in that regard so you kind of have to love the tone because what they're to do is tell you that story and i i just started so i'm just interested personally but i'm super glad you're enjoying it and have enjoyed it and completed it because You know i'm. I'm glad that things are available. All right christian. What's on your playlist. So i went back to the wonderful world of ally. Which do i think you might have mentioned. He said valhalla. I think it's because you already had said paula. And then he said for hall again is great to play with friends or did you. Have you played val heim did i. Okay i have. I have not not unlike on playing valhalla. Everybody be playing. No i'll hala is the better the to public. Maybe i don't know i haven't played. I have played Valley surf and skate is what i play my game again. Gone service valley. I went back played again with a group of friends. That stream is still up on my twitch. Both of those. I think are still up. You want see our our misadventures. It remains a right game right time fixing those things. I played some With friend of the show time. Hollywood director Former he did this. Show totally rad. Show jeff. I don't know if you know what i heard. It was incredible. Where are those guys now. I only know at one of them's doing. Two of them are very successful. But i played them with them. Talks to you every week. The most successful one as a lot of friendship. And tell you what the most successful person gets to spend ninety minutes plus in my ear holes every week But it was so much fun man playing with like the kind of regular group. I've had now of three and then jumping into dan's world for a little bit and and seeing like where he said his home and where he wasn't his discoveries and On both instances we. I did kind of my first Dungeon in the way had a procedurally generates things in the hijinks that can happen The first one we went into With the larger group it was full of the resources we need. It was like oh my god. This is a bounty came out of their body survived so much good stuff and we were tinkering a building out our settlement or whatever and then let's go do one more started getting greedy right through to the second one that we found 'cause jp had found like two in the map we go over to the other one and we go down and it's just like two rooms once gallatin nothing there. It's like it's like you load into. It's like now entering whatever it's called like the grave digger whatever like it's like souls of the graves and we're like you. We go and it was like one guy it. There's like nothing good but that experience was still really fun and it has me clamoring. I val heim really well. Now that i'm clamoring to carve out time to play it so low. So that when i get back on with the crew i can be like look what i did like. Look look at our kill now. Look our forged metal weapons for everybody you know like that kind of stuff And so i think that so. I know it's kind of got my hooks in me where i want to make it pretty and do the do the work in between sessions in and i wanna play with more other people to see what their experiences are like kind of what those first discoveries are. It's a it's a special game that to me. Does a lot of other games have done before it but is able to add just that little bit of time and then that little bit jessica that makes it. I use this comparison a lot but it makes it kind of that horizon zero dawn of like yes not wholly original but the whale these pieces come together maybe to speak so the nostalgia in with the debate graphics a little bit. But if you haven't checked it out and you think maybe the hype is is too much. I i really recommend val heim even this early access state. There's a lot of fun to be had three million copies in. Its first week so a lot of people. It is the game of the moment. It was slow. I will check it out because we recommend that it now specifically and then also heisinge don was the game of the year that yes. I believe we weren't we did and it was. The asteroid game asks very different style of game without dogging horizon zero. You'll love and the other one i mentioned earlier. I'm playing more houser fury. That's kinda honestly made a bunch of things. But i was gonna go place punk. Your shut in my office and my kids are like. Do you want to go play. Our house like yeah. That sounds fantastic. In my kid's mind is blown by that game. He just constantly talks about it all he talks. You want to know the names of all the bad guys in mario world. I'm like no one cares about. There's no one that knowledge is going to suit us zero in your life on. No one cares that you know that. They're called a snow. Poke whatever guests guessing. I'm getting your son trays next birthday. Give you a hint start to poke in with. Because that's what i keep saying. I'm like you need to get into poker. He just needs to learn to read. Come on four year. Old learned to read already pokemon was vehicle for reading for a lot of kids. True backbenchers fury I mentioned this. I think last week. It's it's incredible the way it kind of builds upon three d world in the weight adds that open world. You know you can kind of connect between these if feels Keep having different things fidgeting with him. I have it connects. It feels kind of like an amusement park where there are these little spoke little these little lands that have their runs. You can get your multiple Shines and then you can see how they all kind of relate to each other thematically where the ices over here over here in. That game does really well as we talked about earlier. I alluded to is opening up. Multiple runs. similar to headman. You'll go through and you'll get a shine and then it tells you what the next one is. And you're like oh there's so much more level here than i even and you find a secret and it'd be like there's even more level here it is going back and replaying the same course again over and over such a delightful experience bowser fury And him of consumed consumed by week there. Just both absolute. Joyce sounds cool man. I haven't played a lot of a lot of that game with my son as i said But i'm putting stuff too I finished immortals phoenix rising. This week i was about little over forty five hours. Lots of stuff. I didn't do lots of things left undone. But i'm in love with that game. The end of that game is so good. It is this huge open world where you are very much like breath in the wild and i know a lot of people criticize the game for lifting a lot of its concepts breath of the wild and the first people i think to admit that in fact in the context of the game they admit it. There's one point very late in the game where you run into other soldiers and like some of their mouth. Their little random vocal lines one of them A soldier just go like my weapon keeps breaking. Am i doing this wrong. I was like clearly shouting out the while you know you are ostensibly. It's this big greek. God pantheon thing and you are trying to save. For god's in in each of the major continents you're saving god and then reassembling them in the hall of god's in the central central hub. And then once you do that and it just big open world. You can do that in any order. There's lots of things to do. In the meantime the power yourself up Of of these volts to go into that our puzzles that you give you just numerous different kinds of currencies that a level your character up and get you more and more powerful on a variety of ways. And then after you've Done all the gods you unlock this central mountain. This big snowy mountain. You haven't been in the snow before at any point in the game. The snowy mountain opens up and all of a sudden the game becomes this linear ascent of this mountain and it is so cool. How they've built you up with all these traversable options and all these different ways that you can get around and do anything in any order and then the way in from a game design perspective how they focus you in and make you ascend this mountain in a linear way. It's so cool and it. It feels like this crescendo. That is happening. That brings you to the end of the game. i just. I was so enamored with with the way the game ends. And then the final boss fight utilizes all the things that you've you've attained as all the gods coming in and playing a part in the final fight. It's so great. I'm not going to spoil anything but man i cannot speak high enough of immortals phoenix rising. I hope that game gets a sequel. Absolutely enjoy every single second. I had with it from start to finish. It did not wear out. Its welcome with me at all. I just it constantly kept adding new wonderful things even towards the end that i thought were so entertaining. A pure fun experience. It's going to get a sequel but before you can play assassin's creed one remastered is going to come out. You have to play the assassin's creed that nobody really wants recognizes. I think you're gonna finish that game christian sido myself. Yes but no. I mean it's like i want to finish it. I- legit want to finish cyberpunk some looking at the release calendar coming up in. And maybe there's a time in there. I think i'm probably like two thirds through And i've been main lining. I think more so than you did in mortals. So it's one of those games like that's what i'm gonna play and then for whatever reason i don't I don't know it's so good it's next. It's next on my bucket list. I've got it installed on an xbox. But i had to make a decision to play assassin's creed or immortals and i went was assassinated. I medically it just spoke to me more But that's on my bucket list. And then i gotta go back through and do ghosts. I've just got a lot of huge open world games that i already games. Tonisson think those are those speak to me is just four games. I honestly think that if the character designs for mortals were a little different little more realistic and less exaggerated and cartoonish that more people would have taken to the game. I think honestly. I think that turned a lotta people off. I know there are people that don't like it because of how close it is to breath wild. You're never gonna get those people. But i think there is a large group of people that may be overlooked it because they he saw the the exaggerated caricatures of the of the characters and were turned off. And i think that's unfortunate i. I'm really bummed out by that because the game is very special. I think it's really good. It's it's what i wish. Breath the wild was and it was blasphemy. But it's what i wish. That game was admit something though. As i say i don't have time because i keep i've mentioned around it. I've been playing god of war again and it's really good. I'm the f. Five that updates real nice. Like i don't want to like the vote time. Talk to but like please no when i say other games on my time and then here in a couple of weeks i'm big and i finished all the valkyrie. I put god of war. The remake got or not remake. But the new more. I put that game a number one all time for myself. You played with with the patch. I haven't tried it on five yet. Now i have. I'm maybe i'll do that. It is there are worst games games to go back to the worst. You could spend your time on me. That's that's a couple of other games on my plus want to mention Got an email a couple of weeks ago. From ernie four uk who gave us his review of deep rock galactic. Which is again i have completely overlooked. And then there was a steam sale. And so i picked up de broc making the biggest mistake of all time because i didn't check that it was on xbox game. Pass it's on. It's on a pc game pass to evidently And so i already had it anyway. But i bought a cheap price on this team sale kicking myself for spending the money but it turns out to be a really fun game. Deep rock galactic. You play dwarves. A team of doors is a multiplayer game where you are delving deep underground defeating enemies collecting resources that you can then bring back out and upgrade yourself. And it's kind of a mix between left for dead and minecraft because every part of the the cave that you are digging through the mind that you are mining is is destructible you can burrow through any wall hit stuff with your pick ax and break stuff. So it's very minecraft d where you can just break stuff and go anywhere you want. I discover you know nuggets of gold and other minerals. But there's and there's bad guys waiting for you that you have to get through but there's also this cool like classes different classes of doors for different classes that can do different things in different ways and you need. A sort of diverse team in order to be most effective and specialists in various ways can do cool stuff in banned. It was fun it was. I too was playing that game with friend of the show. Dan trachtenberg so you know. He has no loyalties to either of us dan. he's been stepping. I i had iron. That could have been being smelted at over smell to delta. He anyway we. We had a really good sized. Several folks i enjoy it. I enjoy it. I don't know how much to stick with it. I hope so but it is definitely one of those great multiplayer games. That is fun with a preventive common task. You have a common goal and get into it as a challenge in it is is really fun. Let you figure out to do things in kuwait classes literally let you create platforms if a gun that shoots platforms so you can burrow through walls and create platforms. You can really be creative in how you approach a level on the way you go through it and then you get to the end and you do the thing then you have to escape and get your way back out has lots of monsters and bugs and stuff crawling you have to attack him It's cool and there's also this one game mode that i thought was so neat you know you have this big mining machine and you have to connect pipes in certain ways and when you connect the pipes they create these grind dible rails. You can grind like a skater. Inline skater or skateboarder. So they create. These like quick roller coaster rides all around these underground tunnels. And so you'll you'll be fighting. It'll be like oh there's a a pack of enemies that have come all the way on the other side so you just hop on a thing and you grind. You can shoot as you're grinding so clever so fun. That's deep rock galactic. A really fun multiplayer game digging it and then finally. I got an early code to game. That's entering early access. I think as you're listening to this and should have already be out. The twenty four th is when it's released it's called fights in tight spaces. This is very much my jam. It is a card based turn based strategy game where you are. You are a martial artist in an action movie very akin to something like a A super hot where. You're kind of choreographing an epic fight. Scene step-by-step reminded of like john wick heck's and some regard also like yeah different with the card mechanic but similar and kinda. You mentioned the super hot words like what you do in when you do it matters. I love seeing action games. Broken down like this. What is it in. And i just lost it in my head deconstructed right. It's like food gum like. Here's the bond. Here's the patty. Here's the lettuce tomato and that's what this look and it's a cool. It's it's this three quarter perspective in these very small tight spaces it's right there in the title But everything's desaturate. There's no color it's all these sort of white. Just the shell of things. You know the you'll be in a garage and there'll be a car there with an open you know hood and a engine sticking out but there's no color to it. It's all white. It's all abstracted and all of the enemies and you are silhouettes but three dimensional. It's like you are. You can see the tie. It's almost like this cardboard cutout look but three d. and there's a variety of enemies. Some of them are like you know using blow torches others have guns and baseball bats all kinds of stuff and you gotta take them out and the way you take them out. Is you play cards. And so it's very much a card based attacks system fish attack on a card you have movement on a card. It's hard stone. You only have a certain amount of mana not called mana here. Obviously but a certain amount of of cards you can play on a turn and you have to figure out the most effective strategy in order to you know you can slip around a guy and then forced him. He has an attack queued up. And you see where it's going to land and you can move out of the way and then his attack actually hit one of his buddies so it creates these really cool you know. Jackie chan style attack sequences. And then when you finish the level you can hit a replay and it does everything smoothly so really looks like a choreographed fight scene. I mean it's not quite as smooth as you would want. But it's got diana camera angles and it. It makes you see the fight that you stepped through. Turn by turn in one fluid motion and it it's a pretty slick idea and it was also a rogue like so your slay the spires something. You're ascending through each room. And you have a finite amount of of health. So you're trying to get as far as you can to the end of the level by ticking little damage and beating up all the guys very cool greatest really great idea. Great concept it's early access so they're gonna continue to refine. I hope they figure out a way to make the replay feel even more cinematic. Because it's it's pretty cool now. But i would love to see the notes is still a little herky-jerky between the rounds between the turns and if they can figure out what a smooth that together on really make it feel like a fight scene. That would be so awesome. I'd love like like maybe the next version of this to be like raid right are like drought like climbing. The tower just made me think of like you know putting. I'd love to judge dredd in that style thing in your beat boxing. Your way not be boxing. That's but you know what i mean. Fighting her way up the floors literally and figuratively. The game looked really really cool and it was all mouse. Keep clicking on the cards. I couldn't quite make out the interface of kind of how you're playing. I mean it supports a controller. But everything you do is by clicking on cards you can rotate the camera around to get a better view of what. But it's all you know. It's all turn based grid based you can move to the square. They're gonna attack that squares. You better get off that square. But there's somebody blocking you so hopefully have a card that let you slip by guy or rotated due to grapple throw and it uses the environment. So you'll have a head butt or someone you grabbed. Somebody's head and slam it on something and if they're near a wall you'll slamming into the wall if they're near the hood of a car you'll slam down on the hood of a car can context sensitive like that really really cool game again. It's called fights in tight spaces in just wanted to early access so it's discounted on steam. I recommended him. It's very much john. I love card based battle systems and this one is unique and different and really fun. Perko all right. Let's think our third sponsor which is ritual. Oh my gosh do you know.

Birth dodie of a suggestion help people get through their week. Yeah so besides podcasts. Last year i really got into audiobooks. I used to have before. I moved I had a forty five minute commute. And my podcast feed. I didn't have too much on this through that. You know by wednesday. And i would just have four five minutes each way and then traffic and snowbirds and stuff like that. So i i got into audiobooks and i've been recommending on your books to a lot of people. I just sit in the car for hour and a half plus each day and there are apps out there. I use the library app. Which is fantastic. Things like audible work. It's for me. it's it's cost prohibitive way too expensive to do through audible but i use. I use the library at least right maxine. I'm just finishing it up. Yeah yes libby. I am just finishing up One of the star wars books. I don't ever read or listen to anything. Good it's all. It's all just kind of like nerdy novels and stuff like that. So i i i've unless you have gone through the entire d'italia witcher series. I listened to that old thing. I've listened to probably ten fifteen star wars. The last twelve months ready player. One in two. I listened to back to back. Yeah there was just a great way to. You're stuck in traffic i. I can't listen to talk radio. I hate the actual radio. And i'd have a lot of music on my phone. I know music on my phone. Actually and when. I'm doing podcast. We'll put on put on a book and i'm able to listen to books at work. Sometimes i kind of have my own cube outrunning about the hospital. I can just put in app is huge. Said it cost prohibitive. Audiobooks can be expensive. You get for free with the library card. All you need is a library card. It's nominal the we'll rent. You audiobooks is what i did when i had my is surgery. This not libya up almost exclusively. Look at anything is great. Yeah i just don't have time. I can't read. I get comfortable. And i fall asleep like just listen to it. Because i can't streets in the chrysler. What is your parting. Gift dispersed camping. It with that is so dispersed. Camping is Camping wear there's not a campsite So you wanna go to like a national forest or the bureau of land management and. It's it's allowed. You know encouraged anywhere nomad lands. Dude i it's it's cute also like i wasn't talking like did you hear Scorsese's comment about how net flicks calls everything content. That's what that wasn't really reference to. I did not catch that. He was like everything just content to them make movies. I don't make content. Whatever it's dispersed camping it's free and it's a little sometimes can be hard to do because you're off the grid. You'll actually need to download a map or have a paper map but essentially in a national forest. You can just camp anywhere. That's how you get these postcard style. Campsites encourage you. You get eaten by bears. Go ahead make urge you to use like Fire trails and you're not supposed to disrupt in the nature. So if someone else has camped there before their maps and resources you can find online of where there is a fire pit if you know fires are allowed and how to get certain areas and stuff like that you have to bring all your own stuff and pack everything out no resources or anything in there but it is absolutely absolutely beautiful. We took our our off-road rig to pinnacles which is about three hours outside the greater los angeles area i think star trek three was filmed there. a bunch of music videos as well it's like crag it used to be a a lake millions of years ago and there's like these pipes are like rock formations. That were built up in under the water all these years ago. That are still there. And it's it's very other worldly in just absolutely incredible Such a wonderful experience. I only got. You don't have to have an offered to go to pinnacles. If your nail area we pushed it out a little for like got nervous twice I got the family at We made we made it through But if you haven't done it it's that time of year. I feel like for a lot of the us getting nice Looking into disperse camping. It's in my opinion the best the best way to do it. It's just you nature. It's it's beautiful. I think people would you this in front of our best buys and stuff like that. I for my xbox through sixty one time exactly yes so other people. That's the difference. Is that your only people out there. So it's more like trying to get a ps five gotcha. okay. I want to recommend what i consider to be the funniest movie i've seen in years. I think it's a work of genius. I want to memorize it. It's one of those movies that i want to just be part of me. I wanna reference lines. And i want everyone to get my references. So that's why i want all of you watch it. It's called. Barb and star. Go to vista del. Mar or it is hilarious. It is hilarious. Kristen wig reunites with the one of her co stars from bridesmaids is their follow up writing bridesmaids. And my goodness. I hurt myself laughing. I think it is a genius. Don't read anything about it. I know it's twenty dollars right now to rent in his twenty dollars on amazon which is no small amount. You will want to own this movie. If you're like me. I wanna watch it over and over and over again and memorize it. Because it's that funny. Barb and star go to vista del mar get on it. Get on it and we also got a listener suggested parting gift is comes to us from richard in texas texas arts. Go out to texas richard. Doing well hope you're doing okay. Hope you're surviving.

That's eighty seven out of one hundred our start with windows central. Who gave it a four point. Five out of five kevin. I gave you a trailer here for bureau. If you aren't dead jez. Coordinated window central rights. Death store is a triumphant game but honestly feels like a steal at twenty dollars a great cast of characters a menacing menagerie of monsters satisfying and silence hack and slash ary all wrapped in a gorgeous world that somehow manages to be desolate and uplifting at same time while there are few bugs in minor issues here and there they they are legitimate right. They are ultimately minor and don't threaten the whole package. Acid nerve once again proves themselves to be masters of their craft creating a world that defies its budgets and delivers something unique in special in the process. Death's door effortlessly joins my list of best. Xbox games launched in twenty twenty one so far in hopefully will join yours to overnight. I got a nine point from brennan. Graber who wrote death store is a must for those looking to scratch the issue of a classic. Zelda dungeon delving game with the added bonus of impeccable combat against waves of foes in a creepy world secrets are plentiful enough to offset the low variety of rewards and the cohesion of puzzle solving in combat encounters worked tariff terrifically terrifyingly terrifically to challenge me and all the right ways while i wish. The adventure didn't so soon as a reaper of souls. I know nothing lasts forever. And then gamespot. Dot com tosses in eight point zero allesandro barbosa rights with an engaging world to explore consistently satisfying combat to keep things entertaining. It's easy to fall in love with that store. It's premise hooks you immediately. And it has the style and substance to maintain the captivating allure of his opening. Perhaps most importantly it's just consistently fun to play with sharp enemy designs. They keep you on your feet too. Challenging boss fights that test your skills and satisfying ways. There's a lot of death death to deal in seoul's reap but death's door makes it a delight every step of the way gary. What have you played any story it. No but i did pick it up. I'm excited to see that it's out. It looks terrific delegates also. Xbox consoles is it's on steam right now. Same price twenty bucks. The strike against it and paris and mike and i actually talked about this recently on the on the x. Cassie it's kind of weird. How the strike against not on gay pass because we expect everything to be gay posses muchly drops with a price. Like really gotta pay this one spot in here. All of a sudden twenty bucks is meant to be. It'll be asking the question. Could it be this eighties because it's storming out of the gate. I've been playing. Death's door but i only got one night with it. Before po came and had to be an entertaining friend in play co op games and run around and do stuff of his choosing. And so. I enjoy what i've played of death store. I definitely think it is something special. But you don't take my word for it. Ladies and gentlemen please. Welcome to the podcast. The one the only the hispanic heartthrob texas treat. Latino heat click and heads and ripping them to shreds the globe trotting headshot and nitro rifle from twitch dot. Tv andy cortez andy how much. Death's door have you played. I'm fourteen hours in feed it yesterday before we recorded loki in review. And i am i. It's on right now. Because i'm still trying to do stuff. There's a lot to uncover even after you beat the game and it's it's just fascinating that there's this much sort of detail and passion put into a game once you're kind of done with it especially at that tone dollar price. I i forgot who the first review that you read greg. But it's so true that there's there's a lot here for twenty dollars and it is one of my games of the year. So far day can i can. I just say i'm actually genuinely surprises. Andy showers face with me here on the show. He's document for weeks here. Is gary come on. No i love you dude. I i look i prepared for you. Happy burnt that's the way Be birthday to you. Treat yourself and tika day of fucking kick your ass. And mario golf. I love it. Thank you so much. And the invitation to have a friendly no grudge match of mario golf of course stands as as it has now for weeks anytime. You're not watching the hair. Not ducking may feel free. I'm always around. I'll play you anytime. Let's get it on the books. Okay greg you hurting right. We've everybody knows you just need to step up. Definitely we're andy could barely beat me. At mario golf and i think any given sunday game could go a different way. But i think gary's not in our league gandhi like. I don't even think he's like in our league from golf you know he's putting up these things. He got negative twenty one then. He puts up a clip of him rage. Quitting against the ai mckee. No that wasn't against those were against top level online ranchos. Thank you very much softer sale. Saying when i saw him back to door though andy. I know you're coming on the games. Cast to talk about it today. Of course you're on the games every week but you can catch that patriot dot com slash of games. Who recorded live this afternoon and then you come back later. But if that wasn't enough. I know the x. Cast on saturday is going to talk about that store and psycho to and so ladies and gentlemen please welcome to the show from the kind of funny gas. And of course gamertag. Radio the one the only parris lilly immune. But you're here. I see you. There's no sound coming up. He's not muted or he unbounded probably heard me sing happy birthday and he was all right and he's going to do a bit. I mean how do you how do you follow that you know. Exactly i'll i'll. I'll let me just continue real quick if you like this game and do not play. Hyper light drifter i'm coming for your ass. Like when they went on games cast when the devs went on games cast and talked about the influences that they had or on x. Cast rather when they went on next gas and talk about the because i was part of the house. If you remember that video that i put remember a great man thank you. Hello when they talk about their influence. His with hyper light drifter holy shit. This game has so much more. It's much more than just the hack to get your back There's a lot more in there that it's almost as if they looked at. What heart machine is doing with solar ashes. All right fuck it. We'll make the hyper legit for sequel and it is phenomenal. I am still. I still want to uncover and i think i'm like ninety five percent complete done with it when because obviously i beat the game but there is that completion for Percentage of that shows you. How many secrets you've unlocked. And all that. So it's amazing t now that sounds like a decent chunk of game for twenty bucks absolutely absolutely lays joe. Please welcome the best voice in the business paris lily. This awesome intro. That i completely screwed up because i was on mute button. We'd have i been saying this from the moment i saw that game. I've been saying this for weeks. Death's door is going to be great. It's going to be amazing. That's why. I got asset nerve to come on x. Cast to talk about it and the reviews approving it and like andy. i got to beat last night games. Phenomenal the fact that it's only twenty dollars is crazy to me. I don't know. I'm probably like fifteen sixteen hours into it and there's definitely some things to do once you finish it as well great like even posted a quick little video on twitter with one of the early boss encounters that you have. It's it's phenomenal. i'm not gonna go as far as to say this is gonna be game of the year but i think from an indie standpoint. I mean kelly is going to be talking about this in december. Absolutely that good. That's that's why. I made the haiti's comparison because it came out and it was great. Everyone loved it. Bastions great developer the little indie game that could but then like did anyone really predict when haiti's first came out that it was gonna be hoovering up game of the year awards at the end. Now so you never know these days. Suge fantastic super giant in. Its baskin's birthday or something like that advisory in what's on my mind i know here's the thing for me. Avian paris. here's what. I want you to discuss real quick. We read through the synopsis of the review. And i both of you wanna talk about it at length on your podcast coming up so before we get out of the actual talking of death store. What is it. This is the question that i will. Start with. Andy but i want to take. What is it about this game. That makes it so special. Those really sort of eye opening impressive level design that i love from all the souls games that i've enjoyed it kind of blows me way in those In that way there's charming characters. I think this the only thing keeping this from being like really close to a zelda type game is that they're in zelda. I felt like every empty had something to have you. Go do in here. Most of the. Mp's are kind of just like set dressing and they are characters with funding quirky dialogue. But there aren't a whole lot of mpc's making you go do stuff But the ones that do it's still. It still feels rewarding and Yeah the stuff that have you do is really satisfying for me. It's the combat it is managing all of your the eventual weapons. That you do on lock. You don't just have this bo. You unlock more weapons. As you go on you find. More malay wet melee weapons and for me. It's the attention to detail that goes into the level design. But also the mysteries to sort of unlock and there are so many times in this game where you're walking somewhere. You're walking along sort of a a gated path and there's an opening in the gate and you don't and on the other side of it there's water or something it's like well i can't go in there but there's something there later. There's something that i can do here later. And i've i've just found myself sort of walking around the main locations just looking for secrets to find and it is so rewarding when you do get it and when you had that sort of and again i i. I've mentioned. I don't love puzzle games and stuff but there are some some really cool elements that have you kind of figure out like oh well there's gotta be something appear if there's a walkway here and it's all that stuff that just feels I don't know they just they will. If you're going to explore they will reward you for it and there's this a lot more than just fighting the bosses in this game and those moments are spectacular and the music. Holy shit the music. You're gonna talk about all that on games. Cast save keeps them in the tank kid. All right you're another one thing. Super giant always does well great music. This isn't super giant. Remember oh sorry if you keep making the hades comparison. That's why and his past instead birthday. Today i got super giant on the on the on the On the bright today acid before makers tightened souls paris louis. What makes death's door specialty. You mean think. Andy summed it up very well so i'm want repeated other than to say to me. This is if you were to make a link to the past. Now that's what this is to me. That's what i felt when i was playing this entire time. And like he was starting to say that the music's phenomenal. But i'll let let all that happen on games and he can talk about then detail but it's a phenomenal game and it blows my mind that people made it. It's a really small team about to say really small crazy. Well now everybody welcome to the show. The boss baby self. Barrick courtney burn kids. Cast all these things coming up. What are you got does towards really cool. I just saw that. it's not on game. pass today get over it. It's worth speaking of that. Mark star wagner writes in two patriots dot com slash. Kind of funny games says. Hey greg gary and now paris and andy and said we're other reviews for debts door phenomenal and it seems poised to be the next haiti's maybe with less erotic fan art yet. While haiti's launched exclusive to the indy machine switch death stores exclusive xbox a platform where we expect nearly everything become with our game pass subscription deaths or is not on game pass. Will this decision by volver put a put. I'm sorry well the decision to put a title on xbox exclusively but not on game pass hurt its sales myself as an example. I did not buy games on xbox. Wait for indie. Titles like this to come to switch where i can play them on the train and at my girlfriend's house or game pass where i don't have to purchase them at all. Do you think there are enough. People like me to temporarily hurt this games sales. It's not an xbox exclusive. pc's exist you know exactly what he's talking. Console exclusive gary. Come on until we got. My steam deck gaming is dumb. I've said that. And i will continue to say that all right now. We're going to be your taxes anyway. Grigsby so exciting. To be using the friday i need to. I need to do some taxes. And just steve deck right here. Tastic mark i think. Long this t. l. dior your answer. The fact that his game pass sales arguably yes. That's what we've heard from people who put their games on game pass right that. That actually leads to more people buying them stuff. Will you have to be trying to. We'll never leave in the alternate universe where we know what death's door would have sold. It was on game. Pass the hope here would be that. You're looking at a game like we're talking about is it this year's haiti's a game that is going to have enough goodwill and people talking about it that by the time is no longer an xbox exclusive. 'cause is this time to exclusive. Do we know that andy. Gary it's just console. So but not i mean i think it's just xbox yeah. I don't think it's going to be as five years for great. You know that he wasn't actually on that interview right. Okay okay. i just need to be sure. I think this is one of those. We don't limit alternate dimension. But yes i would assume that it would hurt sales. The problem is that you know for the amount of people who talk about their game to better after being or being on game pass. I don't know what that actually looks like financially. I know they're talking to smaller developers. This is a game that has devolved behind it. This is a game that has a proven development team behind it. That hyper for a long time. The real question is to you. We're getting it from mark of. I'm not gonna do this. I usually buy games there. Time exclusive yeah. I would imagine it is in this world that thank you pairs for actually having some answers on like this joke. Interviewer nitra joking about early. It's not a game. Go to buy this one because they were so spoiled by game pies but who knows. It's weird like i almost expected. I don't know why i say this. But it always gonna felt like a game pass game but you just kinda halfway expected it to be on game pies partly because it is a cultural exclusive on xbox and it just has that kind of cool in the. This'll be on game. Pass kind of vibe to it again. We don't get fully we. We probably never will woke up. Microsoft will probably never understand the economics of putting a game on game pies versus releasing it for twenty bucks. Obviously if it weren't gay positive we'll get bit more of a big boost because you know people are more likely to pick it up and try it but as to why some games end up on gain. Some gains ended up as a twenty dollar purchase. Who the hell knows. it's the optics of it. We'll never the economics. Right would be on devolve side where they offered. You assume i could be talking attorney but they get you know. I'm sure at some point. Xbox approach them for game pass offer them as x amount of money in devolve. Thank you for the offer but we think we could do better without that. We think we can make more selling straight up and so that does go into the financials of it if it is time to exclusive right than you're in the same boat as if to an extent of if it was on game pass where right now. It's his ground swell of goodwill you have people going off about how great this game is. How amazing game is and you hope. Both that leads people to be like man. I better picking up on. Pc xbox right now but also if he does come to switch it might just be the. Yeah like you said greg. They knew what they had like early on. It was so good. And they really really confident. This was a great game that was going to make. Its own buzzer. Let you know what we can sell this for twenty bucks. We don't need to put this on gay pass and also the argument. Of course you know that again. and i'm i'm. I'm not even making devil's advocate wise. And i'm not trying to put my myself in anybody's ha anybody's head space but there's that argument i'm sure for some people and maybe for volver of right like well we don't want to. This is a premium game for us. We want to be able to charge for it. We don't want to get in the habit of thinking that all devolve games are going to gain pass or that anything we do. An xbox or with full guys is a premium game for devolve of that went on. Ps plus. i mean maybe that was just a big money truck. who knows. there's that and i think it's i'm not. It might be a different standing to in terms of the developer. Right media tonic. Of course had done a bunch of great playstation minis but this was a big breakout for them. It's her in. How do you get that a game that needs people playing at right together that needs as many people as possible playing. I think that's a little bit different than this single player Zelda like right where you want people to get in there and having experience and you're speaking to a specific group of people right having through my house like talking to him about games and stuff. This would never be game. I think that he would look at or hear about in here. Pitched it'd be like that's the game for me. It might be if you watch me. Play it or got into the. Yeah you watch stream for it but in terms of all these reviews were talking about right. we're talking about. I think people talking in a very specific way to a very specific audience. And that's us this audience. That listens to gaming podcasts. And pay attention to gay news every day. I wonder i wonder why. There's no. I mean maybe down the road it will change. I wonder why is so. There's all kinds of different payments. You can get from these console. Publishers right myself suffer. Give you money to put your game game pies. Maybe they were already getting a bunch of money to make an xbox exclusive. there's no because otherwise why truism is is. Ps five and switch sales one hundred percent. That's also a great point that yeah microsoft probably put money behind it and marketing budget behind it now. A you saw so somebody. Different showcases definitely been marketing. I've been hearing a lot about up until today for sure. Well now you can. You hear more about his game of the year rolls on. And of course. Andy comes of the kind of funny games gas today. Patriot on dot com slash. Kinda funny three fifteen. He can hear andy's in-depth death door Death store review. I'm sure barrel chime in and remember of course the x. Cast is saturday talking about psycho nuts. Too and death store would a banger of an episode in the so much mike in the chat keeps teasing a guest. Soci- with that is i. I think x. gasol primarily just beside not but I bet one of you talked about that store. Bet we don't five dollars all right. Find five dollars gets mentioned on the x. cast gary. I need you mentioned. Death's door it'd be a weird while not to talk about everyone. Just everyone just got a bunch of cowards number. Chew on the roper report. Let's talk about ubisoft new.

Defiant was previously Outed as battle cat back in june. If you remember that everybody. Gary what does x. Defy do for you okay. i'll take you look at it. I actually Been on the lookout for a new shoot at my trigger. Finger has been getting itchy lately. Can you. I actually went back and booted on real tournament for the first time in twenty years Because i just want like an old school shooter and there's nothing out there right now. In the shooter landscape kind of scratches. That for me. But i thought it was interesting that they kind of like this came out of nowhere. I had a couple of thoughts initially i. It seems like a weird choice again to put. The tom clancy branding on. I get that they own and as soon as you say. Tom clancy go okay. Because you know that names now been been attached to a bunch of really popular games. I mean when. I think about tom clancy i think about guns. I think about politics. I think about you. Know kind of geopolitical warfare intrigue spies and stuff like that. I don't think punk rock talk. Lads who is a hardcore. Gop conservative republican like punk. Rock is not you know we usually think of that. He's much any of these games. Have tom clancy. And he's well most with extraction which is going into a more sci fi. I get a splinter cell rainbow six division. All that stuff kind of felt like the division feels like a novel that tom clancy could have written right sure and so two and so two splinter cell and they in fact do those those spin off books but you know once he gave like. I don't think. Tom clancy would have written extraction as a so would have done it whenever written a novel about a bunch of punk rock gun enthusiast fake. So it's a weird one to me. That's kind of like he. Just kind of a weird question from the marketing standpoint. My my initial thought on it. And maybe i'm just going to portray my lack of understanding the current shoot landscape right now. Just sound like the the very old man that i am. But i watched the thirty second game play loop in that twitter video they put out and i my initial thought was man. I i could be looking at any shooter right now. Like just eighty judah and just very very generic to me and it kind of made me feel just to me illustrate. Just how much tunnel vision. We've now got a triple. A game development is to shoot after shoot after shoot and i get to a lucrative market Pa the market. It's a very popular space. People want these games so the industry is going to give given to them off the back of like you know. Valerien warfare pudgy. Still there and apex so much shooting shooting shooting going on. I look at this. I'm like what is this. bring to the party. That is new. And i'm sure they have an answer to that. I will definitely check it out. But when i look at all the different shooters out there they can seem like much of a muchness to me. I imagined that people who play valor and on a really into it would be able to explain to me. Why what like incremental differences to me are actually a big deal in terms of the game playfield and i totally understand only. I'm just telling my first reaction to it when i saw. Yep there's a first person view of a guy with a gun running around people. And i'm just like when is when when are we going to see something like really disruptive or new in this space just something new in an entirely different spices to shoot off the street after shooter and maybe this one's got some really innovative bring to the party. I don't know i there's an interesting trend going on right now with the co op Hor type shooters like back for blood. And i really like the trump clancy game really interested. He's extraction. I think that'd be really fun but i look at these a re another arena shoot really. Is that what the market is crying out for. Ubi soft marketing research would seem to suggest yes. I just know what. I looked at that loop. I remember my initial reaction was like i could be looking at any of a dozen different shooters right now. That was with. You started yesterday when the trailer dropped or the you know the pitch video and we want to call it in wash through it and i'm like i'm not a shooter guy but i'm always looking for shooter that could you know grabbed me and change my mind and i watched that and i was like this is not that game like this. I'm i'm with you. And i'm not trying to rein x defined or you of any first-person shooters more party. You go enjoy yourself but for me. I was watching it. Yeah i was like okay like these are so like the. Tom clancy hook here. Is that different people. When you know you're running around his third echelon gabler sorry regarding that everybody. Calm down all right sam fisher sam fisher's group and you were using the tech that way and doing scans and seeing through walls and shit. I was like okay. That's neat but like when i i saw like stuff from the division splinter cell characters like oh shit. They're not trying to do like the shooter version of like ubisoft. Cinematic universe brawler. They let the fucking rabbits gonna show up in this thing. I just seem to me i. I don't know it's feels generic again. I think that the difference of the for the real enthusiasts of this genre. What marks what these game games out was different and will often can make the difference between success and failure are not the things are necessarily visible in a thirty second game percents. It's the it's the little things that make the difference exactly and so i think sitting here going like well. What's it makes special and maybe when you get people get their hands on it. They'll see it. I know that for me personally. Watching the you know the latest battlefield stuff from e three and like around that time frame reno summer fest all that jazz. that was. The one that i was watching that reviewer was like oh. I don't think i'll be here forever but i'd love to play this for a while like the the scale of it. These explosions everything else. Good looks whereas washing this yesterday. Like okay cool. This is a fun free to play shooter. Go get him. I was. I was getting hope. I was hopeful that we'd see heartlands. I wanna see some division heartland see what that's all about. But i digress. Gary yes i want to see division heartlands.

Let's go to psu where ernest lena's reporting on the playstation five. Losing some weight a new model revision of the playstation five digital edition with model number. Cf i one one. Zero zero beezer. A one in japan is confirmed. The new safety guide user manual on the official japanese playstation website these specifications of the specifications page of the manual lists this new version of the ps five digital console weighing in at three point six kilograms which is three hundred grams. Point six six pounds lighter than the three point nine kilograms of the original. Ps five digital model. At this time. It's unclear what has changed in the new five digital model revision other than the weight all the specification numbers are the same as the original. Ps five digital edition. Additionally the quickstart guide shows the vertical stand of the new. Ps five digital edition uses a different texture and screw that allows it to be hand screwed. Previously you needed a flat head screwdriver or coin on the gao. Page listing ups. Five digital edition model has the release date listed as july twentieth. Twenty twenty one however no. Ps five digital consoles came in stock today at any retailers in japan. The company's previous earning report. Sony confirmed that the place they she five sold seven point eight million units as of march thirty first twenty. Twenty one the. Ps five is the fastest selling council in us. history across the globe. The latest playstation console is still difficult to buy as it continues to not be readily available the shortage of his five caused by shortages of semiconductors and other electronic parts as well as scalpers. Gary obviously not much to add to a little bit lighter of a unit. But are you stoked that you can use the screw by hand because when this screw got revealed you said here it is greg. It's pc gaming and you started thrown that my face screwdrivers. Yes this is interesting this morning. It's not the biggest story. But it's it's a thing if sony can you know. Shaver a few ounces off of the The playstation maybe that saves them a little bit of money and manufacturing and shipping and stuff like that the end of the day. The white of a console doesn't mean very much unless it's a hand held when you once you put it on your your av av cabinet or on your desk. Whatever there is and you kind of forget if it's heavy. I think ultimately where they need to go away the really interesting revision will come. Maybe a year or two down. The road is in making it smaller. Because i still think it's comically large in a little bit absurd looking. I when i walked at my peaceful pro. Ps five. i put it into the same little cubby that the ps four was the ps. Four was small enough that there was plenty of room around after. Remember top tip for. I mean i'm sure everyone in the chat already knows everyone listening. Already knows this but you know when you put a console into a little cubby cabinet or whatever you gotta have plenty of space around it for ventilation and when the playstation five in there there was maybe like it just barely fit with no room but you need more than you have room for the air intake fans to pull the glass out. Otherwise you're gonna start to have serious problems and there just wasn't enough room. I had to buy a whole new cabinet to fit and it was ridiculous. So i think the more interesting ravel come when they actually start getting it. Down to a slimmer size. I'm very excited to see the. Ps five slim when that does hopefully come a couple years from now is a we. Is it waiting in the meantime. They're like you wouldn't even really consider this a new rebel new. Rabbi i mean town have different rev number on it but like you wouldn't even even to like lift the to up would be at l. The white difference. They just again a lot of a lot of these mass volume manufacturing businesses. Come down to the margins. Right light tenth of a tenth of a cent and manufacturing millions of these and you can save even a fractional amount on materials and shipping by making it. Just a tiny little bit lighter and fewer materials than that. That'll help sony's bottom line and yeah just screw thing was just a little bit silly. The fact that they've now put some groups around it so you can at least do it without having to go. Get your screwdriver. Out could yeah. We'll see what eh changes. Maybe it will hopefully make them easier to manufacture and get them up but who knows. We'll see how much this point six six pounds actually matters number. Four for you i toss in. This is another quick one Gary can the trailer on this Chris tales review roundup is popping up as well. Of course we already talked about death store. A great indie out there for you. This chris tales is making the rounds today to The medic down. I put it in but metacritic a seventy four right now. reviews are still coming in. The game looks gorgeous. I turned over to pure playstation. Gave it an eight point zero over there. Stuart mclean wrote chris. Sales is a classic example of a game that serves as an omar games of the past. While managing to forge a path all its own solid satisfying combat merged with the storyline. That moves things along nicely if you enjoy turn based rpg's crystals definitely one to play gary as You know and you watch. And we've talked so much of course in the past about a persona persona five inability yet. They're like the gop based combat all that stuff usually not something that snags my attention. But crystals here i think is gorgeous and releasing on Xbox game pass so it is one of those about it and in terms of it. But i want to read it from their actual press release. Of course. I say xbox impasse is also on. Pc switch ps four. Ps five and stadia reads like this. There's no need to time travel into the future. Any further as a chris tales available at last present. Dave overlap chris. Sales is a love letter to classic. Jr pg's created by colombian developers dreams unincorporated and sick were past present. Future abroad together on one screen players can use. Chris bell's amazing ability to slip between time periods to aid citizens across christoph elliot's kingdoms and performed surprise attacks on enemies if chris no wants to save her magical world from the evil that threatens it she must use her power to shape very time periods while gathering allies That will help her in her quest again. I can't speak to how it is Codes we just got some codes Overnight for it. I think it looks great. Thou and it's got my interest peak to somebody who isn't even the biggest share. Pg fan so wanna put out there review seem pretty good like i said we're still waiting for like an idea. Gamespot those kind of people away in and a lot of the reviews that are up right now in another language but the score it looks. It looks good on gain pasta. Why not give it a try. I was like you greg. Pg as soon as i used to see that that would be a big turnoff for me. But as you know. I've talked about it a lot persona five and yeah they're like a dragon totally turn around on that now as j. Pj might you know now. Now that i kind of get it now the the pg mechanics gotta click for me. I'll get a look at this odd. Studying art style is beautiful Just as well right playstation switch since it's everywhere it's everywhere. okay. I like i like to look a bit of something. Keep in mind. Keep those reviews.

Yeah just beautifully. Crafted and constructed around sumo is one of those companies that kind of flies under the radar. We don't talk about a lot because like you said they do a lot of the unsexy stuff. The world for higher the ports the adaptations the licensed properties. When we think of the sexy develop is right. We think about like naughty dog. Insomniac those kind of companies that like dude like the big aaa will property games that get all the headlines.

The original xbox game gives you upscale at all or of this mood at our. In any way i loved that game. I think that was probably one of my favorite games from the original xbox generation bring it back. Bring it back. Everybody speaking of bringing it back greg way for the return of required reading a whenever we want to segment of something awesome. We saw the internet today. I want to point you to taco taco. Where even get gotch is writing about. I it was an assassin's creed expansion now. It's ubisoft eight-year nightmare. He has a huge article talking all about skull and bones. I will read the first few graphs is an insurer to get you. Started in urge you to go to kentucky dot com. Check it out. A few people said it was cursed others simply had no idea what they were supposed to be making quote. Nobody knew what the fuck they were doing said one former developer skull and bones development began back in two thousand thirteen a multiplayer expansion two assassins creed for black flag and that would release as opposed launch update three sources with knowledge of the projects origin said the expansion soon took on a life of its own however morphing into a full blown. Emma likes spin off with the working title black flag infinite and later a brand new pirate game called skull bones. the game made a big splash. An onstage reveal on hands on demo at e three twenty seventeen and return a year later with a second polished demo but since then disappeared sources are split over. What happened some say. Despite the well received e-3 blowouts the game effectively. Didn't exist others argue that a version of what was playable at industry events could have launched roughly on time in early access and matured in the while other games as a service have years later. The game is struggling to take shape and people are running on empty quote. A lot of stuff still doesn't make sense said one former developer quote just polishing it at this point would be a waste of time unquote skull and bones was originally supposed to launch in late two thousand eighteen then sometime in twenty nineteen then sometime after march twenty twenty then sometime before march twenty twenty two and now it's due to come out before march twenty twenty three again that is just the start of ethan's article about Skull and bones over at taco. I urge you to read it. It talks about the fact that may be the only reason they still exist because of a deal with singapore. There's a bunch of stuff going on there really interesting read. It's in alpha now. Apparently go check it out over on kentucky dot com.

Episode 265 - E3 2021! Nintendo Showcase Reactions

"I need a weapon down there and welcoming to generation Xbox. This is absolute number 265 with our continuing coverage here today. To talk about Nintendo who have their own direct earlier. Today, I'm here is always with Hayden and Steven, are you guys doing? Yeah, I'm good. Yeah, little warm so long. Yeah. Well, let's start about whether Nintendo was hot today or not. And we, let's jump right into the big, the big thing, right? We saw breath of the wild to offer, whatever the going wherever the final end up being at the end. And we just got this all want the world. Looks like with, you know? No real gameplay or anything. I think everything we saw was pretty dead. Pretty much, you know, cinematic but there's some game playing. I mean, yeah, it was more than we got in was in 2018, nineteen million announced. Hey, I'm just confirming that it was a thing back then. So yeah. But even though, even then they're aiming for a 2022, release, Steven thoughts on Bethel Bounty. What we saw was enough to to get you really expected or is it just kind of I want to see more type thing? Well, I was already kind of excited because I did really like the first breath of the wild game. I had a blast with it. There's some things I want to see change before that. Most part, like, I really did like that game. So I didn't really need to see this to be pumped. I what pump me the most was the 2022, release date or at least shooting for that. I I you know, it's possible gets delayed into twenty twenty-three and I think probably pretty likely but that the 2022 is a little like exciting. But yep. I like I kind of like what their new changes are the world seemed a little more. It doesn't seem to be the same as breath of the wild where you look at something and you can go there and like climb it and do whatever you want. If you have enough stamina it looks like if you go into these like teleporters and you get teleported up two different like levels cuz the world seems kind of, like, more segmented. But I'm interesting to see what, what changes they make from the first one? Yeah, I would say I'm excited, you know, that's a pretty sight while we were watching it together. So what got you really kind of Pumped about breath while to? Yeah, it looks like a lot. It's more of what we all lived in breath of the wild one, right. But I think the same thing for me was that short, you know what links like skydiving down. And they said, like it's expanding the world is taking the high road wake. We saw it in breath of the wild and make it like expanded it vertically. So then we have like Steamers other kind of segments in the air bag and new members explosives. I think that's a good way to expand it, you know, like it's it's a similar world but there's the potential for a lot of stuff that like we wouldn't have seen the photos. Some of the places that we like are still there and when like the shot him diving down made me wonder if we're going to see something like loughlin's returned from Skyward Sword cuz like that's coming out GIF Shear. I know, like, I think that might be like a 10-year. Think I can remember how long it's been since Skyward Sword released? Probably not far off. Ten years. Probably could be that but the shot of him diving down reminded me. And I wonder if they're going to have left Wings in this, like, so I don't know if this is what islands in the sky, cuz it's expanded it in that way. You'd assume. And we saw obviously like home, The castle Master. They just assume that might be like items in the sky that wasn't Skyward Sword. I'd be interested to see if it's just like, you know, power going around again or if we actually get something my loft wings at a really cool. I'd like to come back like actually be able to like fly from the ground level up without like cut scenes and stuff. It's like Battlefront, you know, like the old battle from games where you have to, like, have Space Battles and you'd have ground battles and I can't, which one it was in the PSP where you have it cut scene, where you could like, like transition between ground and spacing the same thing. And I'd love for both of those are silicon. I'd love to both franchises ready to go once and forever and have those kind of, in the same space without needing to cut scene, like a transition. I'd love Zelda to do that. I take laughing, I want to just be able to get like from the ground right up without anything in between. I've been nice. So, yeah, the ring, you know what I liked about is that, you know, it's easy to tell. It's very familiar song. You know, this is Zelda and Hyrule and all that but it's bigger and it's more and it's adding to it. So it's a hand to the next level. Quite literally, it looks like and in the game so long that, you know, I'm I like, I like, you know, the familiarity but more and bigger and better, so that that's good. And I think it's going to be enough to get people really excited that, you know, we're off already. Just really hoping to hear something about this, but before we were noticed, okay, let's stick with all the first act, so the hey, what was it called? The handheld thing with the Russians, other game, and watch the game, and watch with the likes other one and two, and then it was a good game, right? Yeah. So, It's also those guys didn't go back to you here. I feel like this isn't something people were asking for. No, but it's Elda fans and they're nothing. If not Sims for the Nintendo, they'll eat this up. I think on one hand, it is kind of a cool little throwback. There were other games on the old Game and Watch. And so you know, it's kind of celebrating our 35th Anniversary and throwing it on like a new Game and Watch, including both off the Legend of Zelda into and then Link's Awakening from the Gameboy game. Plus some sort of weird video game that has linked playing like a little I don't know like like one of those old school video games on The Game and Watch, You would play something you could play in like the Kingdom Hearts 3, like mini game. I don't know what type of games those are, but I'm sure there's a word that I'm sure I'll get yelled at for June plus the clock in time. Like, I think it's stupid and I'm not excited for it at all. And I did not going to get it and I think it's dumb, but I'm sure there will be people out there that will buy it, and I'm sure it will get sold out immediately and Ed It's just first, ten do, we'll get doing stupid things like this, because people love that for summary. Well for me, as far as say it's stupid, it's just not the way I wanted to experience the games and I know your point, you're like, well, if you want to play these old games and just go by the, you know Nintendo, yeah, the mini NES whenever I'm sure. And I actually took one. But, you know, I kind of wanted the opportunity to just get these games. I experienced them on the switch and I've said, many times in the history that show, like, I'd I want Virtual Console here off because that was the biggest reason I bought the switch was go back and experience these old games and not be able to do that. Really just morning and then the same get released. Like in other ways is a little disappointing to me. So, if you think about it, you can play all these on the switch right cross to around the Nintendo online thing. And then Link's Awakening got remade. So, really stick by time, you wish has been answered just like the catalog page. Yeah, but that's, that's the thing. Like, I just want to be able to places all the catalogs. Let's video service or it's coming next month on the 16th. So, we found new trailer there. Anything stand out to you guys hadn't known as of right now. Like, I mean, it was pretty much all the information. We have a full ride immersion controls as button. Controls the people that don't want to use motion controls, its got stools, it looks a bit prettier. How much pretty you can make it look but I, you know, I'm excited. I really enjoyed. So it's always when I play I think I'll play through a game like two or three times now and I read you like a smart, people tend to get it enough price. Yeah, I'm excited to go back. I'm going to, I don't know, I think the button controls like really wonky, cuz I like these emotions on that game. I don't know how you, use the analog stickers, the sword, which feels like clunky to age. I don't like that. The rest of it. It's not like it. Yeah, good Steven savitz or Gore? Yeah, probably because I, I had it on the way but I hated the, where the we was located in my house. Like the room it was in was just awful. It was hot though. The air didn't really reach it and it was bad. So I really didn't play too much of it. So I am going to probably get it cuz I do want at least give it a go off. Yeah. It's the last time you saw a firm's all the as well as the Hyrule Warriors agent Calamity expansion. The first wave the else is coming on June eighteenth. So just three days from now. But Hindi you first year like, you know, I mean, they kind of was this what they love with this is what they left with, with all the way, how does Stephanie this was going to be all off? I think we were all. I was, I was either I wanted his own a collection where I wanted something breath of the wild too. And so I'm coming again. Press the world 2 trailer when they live with their sounds like down, here we go. But I haven't actually played Hardball with agent call me, see I played the first one and I enjoyed it. And, you know, by all accounts as your client is, is that? But better, you know, like which I assume first of all, to be that, right? Which, I mean, it's, yeah. I think the DLC might push me too. And I think I got into Hyrule Warriors, the original woman's like, all the characters are in there and stuff and I'll probably do the same day decline. So here, I think both you guys really excited for June, showed up, your Advanced Motors wanted to reboot Camp. Stephen, what has you excited for this Advance Wars? I thought Nintendo killed the franchise buried at twenty below, the surface of the Earth and just a little never would never receive. See it again. I love the advance towards games. They were some of my favorites on the Gameboy and then the the DS Advance Wars, dual strike. Was one of my favorite games like ever. It's definitely handheld favorite game ever. I love the series like this, the Tactical strategy game. It's just so much fun and it's got like a pig. Sort of like charm to it like the stories and the characters as well and each of them have their like each of the the fact or the leaders have their own like specials and super specials that I'm not sure when a specialist got put in the game. I don't know if it wasn't until dual strikes, but I'm just excited to play the game. They rebuilt the games from the ground up. I didn't even realize we were getting both one and two, I thought we were just getting one. So seeing to do both one, and two was pretty awesome. I don't love the $60 price tag to it, but it wouldn't be a Nintendo if they didn't charged full price for old games, so, yeah, but I'm excited. I just wish it was a little closer than December 3rd, but long, that might be my most exciting game of the year. Really? I just like, the series so much. I feel like, I feel like November December again, we packed, so, so, yeah, you're also very excited for this. So, yeah. Just even, I adored this franchise as a kid. Like, I mean, when I am, I'd like my DSM like my Gameboy and so if we didn't have, I didn't get gains very regularly, right, like how somebody was missing them sales the past few years back. Then I'd get like a matter of taking my Christmas and that kind of be it. And that means, obviously games would last me a lot longer in advance or some of those. I just play through the every year, like, all the time. As a kid, like Jake whenever we used to go on holiday and you take like your DS or Gameboy or whatever and I play like Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, right? Like I mean the Mecklenburg this year too and then I play like, Advance Wars and off some other like, stupid games, like Lego battles in my bank or something like that. Like, there was a few games on the DS that I just adored and events was one of them. And I might see what I didn't expect us to come back at all ever wage and the fact that isn't just like a remaster, it's like a full remake built from the ground up for the switch. It just makes me so happy. And I hope it sells. Well, I hope this sells so down. Well enough for Nintendo game. Greenlight a million sequels and it it's a mainstay. I wanted to be a Mainstay. It deserves to be a main study, all right? So another game you got really excited for and I think you two are split on this. So I'll make sure to hear why? Why are your thoughts together, Hayden, you're excited and talk us through another one of those Gates, newest games as a kid. I just used to play in. Yeah, it's stupid. It's dumb fun. But and they look like garbage. But it's funny and it's all these mini games together and they're quite unique like, quite quite a key. I just love it. Like they shared the one in the trailer. Well, I can pull in the chest, hairs off the guy and stuff like that. Wario is just off the wall crazy, and I love it. I love it so soon after that like full endorsement, you know, I'll let you be the party-pooper Whiting. Well it just I don't know how long, it's the mini games like squirting toothpaste, it may it be one of those games that is like hella fun, when you're playing it yourself, but when you're watching it on in a trailer, it looks like the dumbass Never, and why would they make it? But the amount of people I've seen excited for this, make me think, maybe I have just not getting it from viewing, and I needed to give these games ago, I don't know. I actually like some of them do like platforming games, there was one, I had on the game, but I think it was Wario Adventures three or Warrior land through or whatever. That was so much fun. I'd beat that game, like, four times a fun. Little like it was fun off at form game, but I've never actually played the warrior where games but, you know, there's obviously as a big, you know, market for this because people are excited and they wouldn't have built or made it otherwise. So maybe I'll give it a go. But the hard thing about Nintendo is I can't ever try games because their games cost $60 and never go on sale. So yeah, I don't know if I want to pay $6 for this game for a game. I don't know if I'm going to like, and I, I guess I could go to GameStop and try to get a used, but it's not going to get any cheaper than going to be for like, fifty bucks. So, I don't know. Yeah, that's right off. Try might have been ten? Yeah, it's well I think too. Is it possible? We're all starting to get that spoils. Not the right word but used to the idea of the things like Game Pass. We're off. We're, we're used to paying that floppy and getting a bunch of games Game Pass. Makes it easier for me to digest, having to spend sixty pounds on like Nintendo and like seventy pounds off my PlayStation games. Like if I would have to just expose game as well, you know, I'd have to skip a lot more stuff. Yeah. But the fact that we get like so much with Game Pass and I like a lot of it's the parties of a slow like I have to pay sixty pounds or bank for blood this year. Now we were all going to do that so you know the fact that I can use that money invested elsewhere is actually makes me probably Thursday morning tender games. So yeah, it's annoying they're so expensive but gamepass spoils me so much that I actually look into games and other platforms that we'd usually cost so much money off. Yeah, that's fair. I don't think it does cuz I do buy a lot of games that aren't on game pass on the Xbox and then PlayStation. I think it's a lot of that, some of the exclusive stuff that I'm like, oh yeah, I have to pay for these outside of Xbox on the other platforms that is a little like but I kind of hate in like not having to buy as many games on the Xbox as a lot of men Bond game past means that sometimes I don't feel as bad paying $60 for a full game or 70 on Playstation side I just don't think this is the game that makes me want to be like yeah I'll take a chance for 60 bucks. Yeah that's fair. Like if you're not sure of something it's hard to justify saying I'll give it a go if it's the same $60 price of wine, you know if it's 20 30 I think it's a little easier maybe but it's sixteenth pretty dumb spell. When you consider just the sheer amount of games that would pretty good. They're coming out this. So yeah. Stephen stay with you here. Swinging by games is shouldn't have until 5 going to be one of them. Yeah I'm definitely buying this game. It it comes. Right. Of course in November and I feel like there's another big game coming November 12th that's going to fight for my time here. I'm blanking on what it is and I probably talk about it tomorrow's episode when I finally, yeah, and look up. But yeah, I'm excited. I love the, I definitely love this. Smt spin-off games, like the Persona series and I've dabbled in some of the mainline smt games. But I'm, I am excited for five. I saw a lot of the creatures. I know, and love and the game play. Looks like typical s empty, so yeah, I'm excited. I actually haven't played any of the series, or this is like the Sona thing, right? Like the same, the same company, but this is like the main line. Hardcore, thoughts are a little more difficult than the Persona games, right? With concerning like a spin-off at first and then, more interested in things or they always been like separate franchises. I just 1% spin off, but it's like, yeah, so long Series 5 looked Goods. I don't know whether I'll jump in just cuz if I'm going to get into like water off then, I still haven't Play episode of five. So I probably jump into percent like Royal cuz that's so cheap like by, now getting cheaper anyway, so, I don't think it's the one to get me into the franchise wage. Should migrate Sensei 3, remastered, or whatever just came out. Is that out. Yeah, I think it is in enough either. Yeah. Yeah, I have Forza Horizon 5 on the 9th and then Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remix on the 19th. So smc's, like right in between those. Yeah. And, you know, we took internet like right around there as well some time. So yeah it's going to be busy busy month. So one game I actually kind of liked you was Fatal Frame in a black water bath. But I love my horror games. So this very much looked like fun for me. Hey, many interests in that one like oh yeah definitely. Yeah I agree with you a little girl games. I wouldn't know how scary it's going to be. Yeah. The trailer wasn't certain aspects, you know, but I'm intrigued. I'm intrigued in the guaranteed wage fine, but I need to see more because if it's just a lot of wandering around and occasionally like using the camera to freeze frame it and it goes disappear. I don't think that's good. Yeah. That's a story's really good. I guess why, I didn't know it didn't look like my kind of horror. Anyway. I'm in the same spot as you like, it definitely piqued my interest, but I'm not like wage to preorder, you know. So I think I don't know what most people. I I love a good jump. Scare, right? I love to just like the tension build and build and build to some ethnic jokes here and just scary. Thursday and I'm fine. Resident Evil. Does that so well right. Like all these little things that build up to just the most terrifying shit you can imagine. Like, I know, you took away through Village, Thai learning, you want to, but like, there are some methods that game that I just Who are some there are some real good moments in that country. That's why you just wait. I don't like cats too much does this doll house? And it's another level down when you're playing through. That is Yeah, words, describe. So the Fatal Frame been about more. I don't know if it if it's going to have the right kind of hard. So it looks a little bit more psychological if I had to guess we're in the camera and stuff, but I think it feels like just going to move out a creepy story. Those can be really good. Players are here generally I love those games and that's more their style. I feel like so you know if that's true and it's more of a psychological side, you know, we didn't see a ton of the game today so it's hard to really say. But yeah, dude, at least intrigued me and Steven your horn is your jam, right? So you're pretty, I don't even know what you're talking about. I tuned off was in horror game. Well. Okay, I know, one day, we can ensure a lot of Mario Golf of a Sharp more than the tree house. So so your new love, all the little extra most other than just standard golf that they showed off here. So what? What stood out, birth For you there. Yeah, I do like the idea of like, kind of quickest ball. Into the hole over anything else cuz I kind of remember it, Tyler. We were playing. Oh my God. What's that mini golf game golf with your friends? Oh my God. I was treating it like that. And I got in the whole first and then you'd beat me by, like, seven strokes. And I'm like, what I want. Forgetting that like, you know, you're playing golf club. And yeah, like, I like that game play. I'd like just obviously regular golf. Like, that'll be fun, but I think the career mode could be a blast and it it just seems crazy. And I took reason I like those Mario sports games is because it it changes the sports game a little bit and makes it like crazy and insane in Arcadia and I think that's fun. And I, you know, I like seeing more of that and I kind of life support them. So they're like, well let's Branch into some other games cuz we've never seen a Mario hockey game. That could be fun that would be awesome and you know, I I remember I think it's helped Our Stars golf. It was a launch game. For the Xbox One. And you know, I bought when that Council launched, I bought like Battlefield 4 and I bought NBA 2K and I bought Deb rising and I bought something else. I don't know, playing or Starz golf, the downloadable thing the most because it was just arkady fun and these, you know, games have that off that Spirit to them that just make them really fun and and you know non-stressful. So it's it's nice to capabilities. I'm definitely buying this game and I know you're a big sports game. This Mario Golf appeal to you, like sports games. I know people like them. I don't know if it's enough to get me to like buy a golf game. Because, you know, I I would never touch a golf game. Usually, it's just not my thing at all knows very well. I have to be receiving that one, where the like, hitting the ball and chasing after him racing along that lines, so much fun and honestly, it's amazing. This is the one more more than any mode. Just golfing. A new donk City, just looks fun like golfing in a big Metropolis, like, just sounds awesome cuz you know, obviously it's harder because there's buildings in your way so you gotta bounce them off the building and run down the street and get to the other Superfund. I'm pretty excited for this. And I am more excited to play the single-player than Co-op or like online with friends. Yeah, I think the big thing for me here was like, they say it's going to get free updates and get new clothes, new playable characters. I know they did the same all the Mario, Tennessee. And it was on switch light back on new characters, quite frequently after lunch. And I wish to marry. Had the same treatment, you know, like regularly updated. But I'm glad to have like gone ahead and send this again, and it's going to Be supported and because it's like Nintendo has been doing that quite well lately for some of their titles. So, yeah, that's there. Yeah. So last thing I'll talk about guys with Ninja though is the fact that well matter of fact, but I want to get your thoughts on this. I feel like it was pretty heavy in remakes remasters which isn't always a bad thing. But, you know, the switches and it's, you know, it's it's been rough over four years. And I kind of expected a little more from, you know, a a brand new console. But I feel another bed why this may have been a Hey let's let's remaster and re-release and, you know, reboot and redo a bunch of games to me. Look like we got a ton of stuff coming out when there's maybe not a whole lot, it's like doing original so. Well is it is it? Let me ask this question though. Let me go ahead is it unfair to level that criticism considering that covid-19 home for a year? Steven go ahead. Yes. Cuz I think that's been Nintendo strategy for a while. Now, especially on the switch is releasing a lot of old games, especially from the way down for like the one we game. I definitely want them to release and form of Legend of Zelda Wind Waker like, what the hell Nintendo, I do think there's a little rights kind of throwing that Craigslist ISM at them for re-releasing, all the games. But I also think we were in a pandemic for a year and that did affect delays or did affect games being developed and shown more than likely off. And I think, well, actually we talked a little bit on something else tomorrow. I'm pretty sure. So, I'll hold off on that. But yeah, I think there's a little to it but I don't I don't think it's a hundred percent Fair wage. Okay, let me know and I'm not convinced it's fair either and I think there's a really good argument to be made for remakes to which all get you after I go to Haven here to get his answer to that. Yeah. Yeah, I'm looking through the list there, there are a lot of like, remasters and rebates and stuff, and but there's also like, plenty of new games coming to this winter, this year. I actually find out how to complain looking through it. So, like, I mean, under Guardians, the Galaxy, the first party, but it's coming to switch or anywhere else cloud gaming or I assume it's plugged gaining. I don't know. But I mean, we're getting Guardians. You know, we're getting dressed like my source are so sorry, say that again, what game over again? And how do you say it? No. No, no. Say it again with Troy Tre. Oh my God. Yeah, it's destroyed. She Android holy please. Fucking suck area all over again, right? But even those games like Lori Tennessee, V, like I I find it hard to complain. Then like you're out of the remasters and whatever you probably the same number there, so there's a lot but honestly, I'm probably more interested in Masters in remakes this year. They've done better rebates and the advance Wars remakes and you know I'm going to get married part sells game. This just loaded like old boards looking like Super Mario party. I'm going to get that. You know now played the Super Bowl football game before I'm excited to maybe have my actually play Super Monkey Ball Game this year. I don't know, but I think able to Thursday yeah they're the ones are actually tempted me more than like 5 or like Mario Golf you know so why do you think that is? So you think it's because is there a little bit of like a full Factory? Where, you know, these are like the love franchises and you've never experienced them. And now, you have a chance to is that pulling you in, or what? Yeah, this is that, you know, and I mean, like Mary Pas, AP different cuz I bought it. Never don't amount to a switch and raised, it just looked like a fun game and I haven't really had many peoples played with before, on the, all the titles. But like, the new one in my girlfriend quite enjoyed. Watching the Stars coming along this time. Like The Purge. Excuse me to get back into that, don't know. And yeah, I think we'd like Super Monkey Ball. Advanced was obviously I already love scars on how you see stuff like that, it's an opportunity, not just a meal for everyone off on the switch. You maybe didn't have some Nintendo past consoles and never able to buy all their games. Can now you know, jump in experience these franchises with like a whole new audience and I think this is a great site, so stupidly. Well, you know, it's it's an excellent opportunity to get these franchises back in front of people and whether it's gauging interest for like a new entry or it's just letting off a new generation experienced below games like it, it's hard to find issue with out over than a price point. And, you know, they love to charge money and not like you'd like to give offense. So you know, it's hard, it's hard to be a VIN check my friend but what I would say, here's what I'm saying. You made a lot of my argument for me of why Rears Happened remasters happen. But the the bottom line is like, you know, a lot of people would love to get into older franchises. But there's the barrier of like playing a game. That's twenty years old and that can sometimes be your religion. You know, it's an experience that some people just don't want to do because it's so outdated. I moved here, without all the time. There are certain games. I would love to play, but I just, I can sneak into them because they are on Modern and I'm used to Modern mechanics. It's really hard to go back when that's what you're used to like, if you grow smaller, is there more of a graphics issue for your sort of control less graphic, something for like mechanical controls password, play, we have a Master Chief Collection stuff now but I can go back and play like the earlier Halos and it's fine. The graphics don't bother. There are some games that suck when you start getting into Nintendo store cuz they control schemes are all over the shop. But yeah, it can be really hard sometimes to actually get into all the franchises. They bring it back for the search. It's a good move off. And the other point I wanted to make is that, you know what, a lot of people complain about the ring, a lot of remakes remasters, but bottom line is, people buy these and they buy them in huge numbers, they offer these remakes remasters performed exceedingly. Well, and if they didn't these countries would have stopped publishing a long time ago. But they, they performed really well. And I think there was a factor Steven of like, it's nice. You know what you're getting. So there's no risk like you were talking about the barrier to trying something new for $60. Well, a remake gives you something that you either know from personal experience is really good or off. You heard about it so much that you feel like there's less of a risk and spending that money. What do you think that plays in at all? Yeah, I think we're Masters are perfect for sure. Like, what Hayden or one of you were saying with a new games coming out throwing every Master up, getting new people in, trying the game that may not have that. It's, it feels a little safer because You know, the games going to be good, not all the time. I mean, look at the Ninja Gaiden Port, which might be the laziest Port, we've gotten in the last, like, two years. But outside of that, like a lot of remasters, are you done pretty well like the Mass Effect 1? For instance, and it gets people excited in love with the franchise again, but just in time for announcement of a new message that game like next year, right once, questioned people's heads wage, which is why, you know, makes kind of the name of Advance Wars. And I saw this in one of the comments. So in one of the Nintendo groups I'm in is that the name of reboot Camp may seem like this might be the like prequel to a new Advance Wars game, and that's kind of why maybe this remaster is coming up or this reboot home, where it's not even rebooted franchise cuz it's just remade from the ground up, right? Sure. So the game comes out, you get people excited, love with Advance Wars and any thought I knew Advance Wars game next year. And next to eat three, and people lose jobs. It ship. Whereas if you're doing a new Advance Wars game, now, people like me and Hayden would be very excited because we've like that franchise. But someone like you who may never heard of it might not be interested. Whereas if you get a remake you might be more likely to try it and then there you go. And now when the new one comes like, oh yeah, definitely buying this year, especially off these like selections as well. Like, Super Monkey Ball. But I mean, here is like 1/2 and Deluxe together, right? Like, a dunce was born in to reboot computer, you paying $60, but for more life, well, I'll give you more content, right to what your games was then, which might actually be smaller than one game now, for some stuff, but the point stands, like people see, one and two, and that's, that's two games. So they're going to be more likely to pay $60 for that. Hello. Yeah, good points. And I, I think there's the other thing too is just when you see remastered or remake on a box, it already has it has a schedule fact of implying that it's really good because it's deserving of a remake, right? Or or remaster. So I think that helps Drive interest drives Institute and, and you guys write it creates a new generation of fans that are going to be excited for the next original game. So absolutely guys, let's wrap this and score Nintendo out of hand. Although First Choice real quick for a rapid cuz I feel like we're going to be dragged into Kohl's. We don't talk about me, troid dread. Oh yeah, so obviously the announcement they're still working on Metroid Prime, 4 is pretty big news for Nintendo fans off and dying for that game. But seeing Metroid red, be finally released like nineteen years later. I think this game was announced in like, 2007. I think I saw an old IGN article with the exact name. Back in like 2007, I want to say a popped up in one of the group's I'm in. So what was that fourteen years ago? Are you running be interested in trying a new 2D Metroid game. I like the gameplay it looks fun. I I don't know. I can't, I make an argument for playing it in front of so much of the other stuff I'm interested in this year. I don't know if I can do that, but it definitely looks fun. Fact, I've never played one of the two D ones. You know, maybe it looked good. And I I was excited when the announcing cuz like I said it's you know, it's a big deal. You know the the franchise is a big deal to a lot of people some happy on that front I think Prime for is more likely to get me involved in this. Yeah. Well you know what? If it how much is it going to sell for some Noble? $60. Well it's a Nintendo game so you already. Yeah. Sort of that. Hm probably. Probably not as much as I want to unless it was maybe like thirty forty, I don't think so. So I'm kind of with you Tyler, like just the fact that there's just a metric ton of stuff, it would be the only reason that yes, it's $60 to just look, is the only reason I would keep me from cuz it's October 8th. It's like right in the middle of everything. Yeah, that's that's Thursday, South month and that month too? Yeah, yeah. So there's a ton there. I think like, you know, if I once I get through the window and maybe if I'm looking for something to play in the early parts of next year, after Alden ring is done and out or rate in between that like Christmas and a living room window this would be something I'm looking at. But mom actually realize that kind of like the 2D to the games. I've had a lot of fun with a lot of them like that like Hollow Knight definitely a metroidvania game that one. Oh my gosh what is the name of that song? South another kind of metroidvania. So you know, I guess I do like actually like those games. So maybe I should try these games and maybe I'll become a big Metroid guy. I don't know. But I feel we should talk about cuz that arguably is one of their bigger. Yes. I know it has a huge following franchises. So all right, okay now let's score Nintendo. I'll go first off because I've got the last last couple of times. So I'm going to do another good showing today, I thought and was it exceptional know, but it wasn't enough to get their fan base. I heard about what's coming in the rest of the 20, 21 and 22. I think so. So I'm going to go ahead and give him a seven and a half here out of town. And I think they did a decent enough job. They showed a good range of stuff off. Maybe not everything was for everybody, but there was something for everyone and I think that's good. So seen it. I think it was a solid. 8.5. I think it was a be here on hyla everything. Like you said there was a lot for a lot of different people which is nice. I always liked the variety pack. It was like an amazing showing but I didn't think it was bad and I feel like maybe I was being a little hard on them when I first watched it and it was kind of a little disappointed that I think my expectations were a little high, I definitely thought we were getting a Zelda collection of like Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker coming to the switch and we didn't. And so I don't want that to just cuz I'm disappointed that they didn't have enough. Don't think that's actually ruined them all that much, right? If I did, the the show could have been a little better. Okay. I'm right in the middle. I think it was a solid eight-page, plenty here that I am interested in. I don't know how much I'll buy cuz like we've already said the end of this year round but like the Bloods Game Pass for the Horizon. Flyers game pass Halo infinite Game Pass. Your boys got money that isn't going there. So there's a good few things here. I'll buy I'm a little disappointed myself. We didn't see any Pokemon. I will like to see. I mean song Legends all cute since January. I don't know how many more like opportunities. They'll get to really show that before it comes. Well I feel about a direct dedicated about the yeah. Yeah we'll get little ones right? Yep. I know that we'll get like a well sharing probably Diamond pearl before that comes out and then lens office. I think once actually remember to be happening fairly soon and that's fine. I mean, this is a biggest Pokemon to write like wage. It's almost guaranteed. And well, I would like to see here that I think my hopes were for that but regardless there was a lot here. There's something for everyone. There was a few games, I would be interested in the items go. You know, take a look at and then even this is the airplane Mario Golf game. The bills are fun. Vlog, that gets point I guess points off. Sure. So, all right back, does it burn a Nintendo coverage? And what we got one more time later this week with a complete wrap up hill, rain, kind of talk about everything from a free and talk about them. There's a whole, including the big question through wanting threesomes. Everybody asks that well, get into that as well, but until that guy's, this has been a personal number. Two hundred thousand people back to something quick, wrap-up and put Moana E320 2111. Enjoy the recipe, three-run, award show, and watch that, and we'll talk to you soon, bye-bye.

JRPG Report Episode 152 - Nintendo Direct Feb 2021 Reactions with Dalton

"Everyone welcome to j. rpg report is going to be episode one hundred and fifty two. And i'm so glad that we do this on the third day because we have a ton of stuff to talk about from yesterday's nintendo direct. We have some other stories to cover but In light of such an awesome event going on. I decided i need some help doing this podcast and so brought dalton on. What's up buddy. hey everybody doing. I almost couldn't make it james. Because i got invited to smash hold that is you didn't tell me we're going to do that. You've already hurt my feelings. What a sick way to start the direct right. Yeah i was. I was a thinking that it was going to be Maybe some zeno chronicles too deal sea or maybe they can make some sort of expansion but Totally super smash brothers did not see that coming. No and they. They played it pretty well because that look like more because if you noticed during that they switched character models like that was there was a smash version of piran mithra and then there was like the beginning of it. Which looked like zambia. Chronicles too so yet. I mean did. They'll see for a while ago. I don't know what i wasn't anticipating. I was hoping that they were just going to a direct sequel and do more should be. I'd be fine with. Yeah they they. They really hurt me. That's a series that i've been meaning to dive into i. I hear nothing but good about it. But i just haven't dedicated don't know three hundred hours or so that it for them for two games just need two hundred hours. That's all give or take now. It's and of course if you want to get into x and if he really you know you've played zena saga gears. Is that great now. I've never had any of them. Oh you don't have to. They're not connected like that. You know you got your switch so you can play the main too but Yeah that's they started things off. Well you know smash people should be happy in the the day. I should be happy to they. Just they started off just like they were making some sort of announcement the very first thing you see in. Yeah they they smash. I'll tell you this after that announcement and then maybe the second announcement that they had done. Which i think might have been fall guys or something like that I just turned off the comments for the live video on youtube because people were being. So i don't even know not even nasty but just so like people i guess like tearing it apart and i'm like why why. Why are you guys mad. Because they were. I guess every time. I see a new deal see character. Come up for smash brothers. It seems like people are more so not happy with it and they are happy with it. Or maybe i'm just looking at the negative. I don't know. I think you're correct and Just speaking. I don't have any skin in the game. I don't care about smash but it's like what do people want. I mean there's one hundred people who else could possibly in this game at this point. I i know right. And it's like i remember people getting mad. They added all the fire emblem characteristic again. Like you said it's like they're pretty much drawn at a well here as far as who they can legally putting the game yeah. That's they've got to be running out of disk space at this point much more than they could they throw in there but yeah i mean that's the comments section that i don't wanna why an event like that. Your comments not going to be read by anybody. There's so many going on at a time. It's just it's rules up before you can even see it anyway. So point very hard to focus on actually reading a whole sentence it is so. Let's we i believe this is a gop pg podcast. So we'll even talk about a few days but yeah that that that was the beginning of it. And i guess the big one i wanna go to. I think i've seen the most people kind of talking about. It is project triangle strategies that kind of where you think we should go. Yeah yes. The octopus tactics is what i thought it was going to be. Which would have been a better title then project triangle strategy but yes square innings. Kind of threw it out. There hadn't really hard about any rumbles about this one a tactical jp g that They're calling this. The latest entry in the hd tutti series for the switch is gonna launch next year and immediate Not only automatic tractor. Visually waspa- benefit has a final fantasy tactics vibe. Yeah it reminded me of the older fire as well almost like with the strategy game play of it. Yeah i mean it looks phenomenal. Don't get me wrong. Adding looks really good. Think people are really excited about and they can check it out right now did you. Did you download the demo and check it out or was that talking to somebody else did that. I did download it. But i have not had a chance to play it okay I think some people had very Obviously they're a bunch of people. I'm sure download and check that out but you can do that right now on the east shop even though it's not coming out til next year and may even have a different. They are saying this is the working title in. What was your comment when we were. We were talking during the during the direct. Like you thought that was not a great title for it. I said the title was very strange but luckily it says working title and were quick to point out to that octave was also a working title until decided to go with. Its all my. Oh yeah and. I guess that one's at least a little bit better. I mean this is just garbage. This cannot be the name of this game. I mean gives kids. You really take it that seriously. It's like game of the year. Rpg project triangle strategy even trying anymore scoring. I mean just put it out. I don't know call it. Triangle strategy would go with that job bill right. they could've just called it like the polygon plan anything. I just don't understand why you would call anything project like. Don't put it out to the public until you at least have a name for it. I mean it's like if you want you know you're Steve machine talk. Asher is gonna call We're just call this podcast for a while to. We could think of a name. That's kind of important. You should think of that. I oh yeah absolutely absolutely. But maybe it's one of the situations where they're not super far along so maybe they want get people's input on what they're considering for the battle system but then again it looked pretty flushed out. Yeah i mean. It looked a lot further along than i would've anticipated again. This just got announced to the point where he could release a demo. That's as far as i know it works. So i mean that's downloaded relatively quickly. I can't wait check it out. I meant to do it last night. But it's ended up falling asleep after i played like hours and hours upon tennessee twelve. But that's another discussion. That's that's for a different day like sunday. We could talk about that This sunday james to come onto the steam machine podcasts and talk to me about some final fantasy. Twelve with me and ryan should be fun. It should be. I might have an opinion or two about that one. We'll see. i can't wait to hear because i've got my own. Believe me excellent. Excellent so china strategy. I mean. Obviously it does have that. Fire emblem feel as well Kind of Let's see was it. You will both have won three convictions. Morality or liberty They've talked about this. A big war between Salt and iron so these are doing something. I'm not heard of before it does sound. You know unique not the same old retread game. But i definitely if you guys want to check out the trailer for it over on the youtube channel. Check out the demo. Let us know what you think and Is this something you might be picking up at some point. Oh yeah absolutely absolutely I loved what i played of octa path. Shocker didn't beat it. But no sure. I i really liked the way it looked and how it played so another game by the studio. I mean i gotta give it a shot. I like how they are Focusing on battles and incorporating elevations making that different type of thing actually matter because there's some strategy games that you play that it's just a flat board y- it'll be cool with hills and going upstairs and having the possibly maybe if you're fighting on the stairs maybe they'll make where you have disadvantages or advantages should be. It should be interesting to see how in depth they go with it now. Are you a afam. Has he tax. Guy never played it. Okay i never played it. But i really liked Fire fire among three houses. Yeah it was and then that made me try a couple of the older fire and I can't remember the names right off. Hand but i really enjoyed that style gameplay so if it's anything like that i'm all in And i've heard nothing but great about tactics over the years. Yeah it seems like that has universally beloved and it's kind of like well we're going to give you another one of those. Here's this and like it or not because you're not getting another tax game. But they gave us three thirteen. Thank you squaring. Oh my goodness that's a ran for another day as well. We'll spare people from that Nest up nece. so yeah. That was a that was the biggest Jr p g announcement kind of Shocked everybody that. Of course there was a new Monster hunter trailer rampage I i think we're kind of talking back and forth to that while this may not be our styling game. The game looks phenomenal especially for the switch. Oh yeah when. I was watching that. I couldn't believe that that was like switch footage. I was like wow. that's impressive. Yeah you if you just you know. This wasn't a nintendo direct univer. -ssume that this was on either bc or has four. I mean it. They've gotten everything. They cannot little system. And i kind of wish i was into that type of thing because it does look a like a lot of fun but i just. I've never been into any of those monster hundred games. Yeah i got. I've done it twice now. I've gotten the monster hundred thirty s. And then i got monster hundred world on my and they just sit there downloaded but not played. Because i'll get in there and run around and i'll kill some monsters and i'll kill something and i'm like man that took two hours. I am not satisfied at all. I mean there's progression and stuff. It's one of those games though. I feel like if you had a group of friends that was like your crew and you guys went out and slate monsters together. It would probably be fun. Yes i feel like. There's those type of games lynn towards that. Whereas i think me at least i can speak for myself. I'm more of a solo gamer. So it's not really gonna appeal to me as much other than imos. Usually i'm pretty much solo. Gamers will Of course this one comes out worldwide for the switch on march the twenty six. You can check that trailer out on youtube. There's been so much media for this game so it's it is ready to come alice but i've been talking about it for months now. Yeah it's they've i mean switches. Obviously there's not been a monster hunter on and no one in awhile since the three d. s. once. I think people are gonna be really for those. This thing is huge in japan to second for like this sell really well over there. It's really come out so our What about legend of montana that remasters coming out to his switch and pc on june the twenty four th I'm kinda mixed on the monitor ban. I'm a huge secret amount of fan. I love the trials. Amman but this one i skipped on. Ps one. did you ever play it so like maybe six months ago. I bought legend of mono- on the ps three store. Because they have the old games and downloaded it downloaded it and then was like all right when i get a chance. I'm gonna play this. And then i started our podcast and playstation three cents. So i own the original one sorta on the system. But i don't physically own it but and never touched it. So i was excited to see. It's getting an hd release and see that it's coming to ps four switch pc. I'm cool with that. Well yeah. I mean you're you're definitely are one of our pc beating the drum for the pc releases. So that's always a good thing. I said i got no problem with it. Come into multiple systems. I think that's the more people that can get their hands on some like this. The better It's only between nine ninety nine. I always like to see this game does not deserve to be full priced. So that's a good price point for it. Yeah totally totally i. I've been a kind of happy with some of these. Jr pg's have been getting remixed lately. That have been coming out or even just remasters that have been coming out like thirty forty bucks. you know. it's it's a it's better on my wallet it's good on everybody's wallet This one yeah. This is just the latest in line of of remasters. We've seen this one. I launched on playstation back in july nineteen ninety nine I i didn't play to the time might have owned it even so even my you know even back then i had backlog problems with games never played but it. It looks gorgeous. Hand-drawn style and they've done a really good job read. We do on that. I was just about to comment on that. I thought this game looked beautiful. Like i love the color patterns and just like you said the art style the cutesiness of the graphics but it almost looks like it has room for something very sinister because usually in these worlds when they make them look cute. See like there's something very evil going to have these. Pg she hit your surroundings and then want vengeance for someone destroy. Well i was. I'd forgotten about kanda story with this one. I watched that trailer. It's like you know actually find out like the world is empty. And like you've got gotta repopulated build towns and do all that fun stuff with it and you can control a little bit of stuff goes on how bill but yeah i mean it. Looks like they took secret ramana and they obviously updated the graphics to to look like just a painting come to life. It's incredible yeah. They did a phenomenal job. Work to write works really good especially on the bosses. Like i'm looking at this Bone dragon looking boss right now on the screen. And it's just it's so well done. Yeah they they They do the work on this one. I like to see stuff like that and then got a little bit longer to wait. It's right now. She's gonna come out. Digitally on june the twenty fourth Maybe limited runners take a physical copy of that out for people but as of right now it's just digital so that'll that'll alienate about half the people afford this one. Speaking of physical copies. I know it is not a gop. But i have a few friends. That are very angry to hear that. There's a switch version Physical edition of haiti's coming out because they've already bought digital and they are physical like they want the physical and now they're like well man. I don't want to buy it again. Well you're gonna have to other people in the same discord or like. Oh yeah we'll be buying that. We'll be buying that again. That's yeah that's that has always the that the run into if you really like a game and you go ahead and dive into a digitally and then it comes out later like at the by this again to get a copy of it. Yeah i mean. I don't know what the dell people that's that's the it sucks but what are you gonna do his life my friend. Now i don't mean to skip around too much Did you did you along with me think that neon white was going to be something zero. Pg like it shirted look like it. When it first started. I was like ooh. What is this and then it went to first person shooter style and i was like. Oh yeah it. I mean it oz. It looks like a gop g through and through if you just look at the screen shot and then at the beginning like you said it certainly then all of a sudden yeah first person shooter with like cards or something like that. So cards are so. I don't even know what it's trying to be the now. I will tell you the thing i absolutely love about. It was the voice in it was spiked from cowboy bebop. So now is like ooh. I'll at least pay attention. But i'm not gonna play you the. Yeah oh i was. Just i was just saying that like when it started off and it was saying that the game is you like you're you're an assassin in heaven like my my brain was like ooh that could be shimagami tensai plot but it. Yeah yes let's go ahead and talk about that elephant in the room so we were talking beforehand about what we thought you know. Put the post out there. What are you looking forward to from this direct. And that's the obvious answer. We've not seen any game from shimmy to say five and we still haven't seen mean not not even they're not a trailer not even a mention of the game. I waited with bated breath for a whole hour. Nothing you sat through No more heroes in splatoon three implants zombies and it was the worst the worst one because it was the ending. So you thought maybe they're gonna show it. Why end on that i do. I know it's a popular game for the platform. But i don't care either. In my opinion it would have been more effective to end with mario golf. Because that's like the return of a series that's been gone for so long. Exactly we'll talk some more on that for in a second but for no rush yeah The direct was supposed to be focused on games. Coming out. In twenty one right and they. They violated that with stuff like splatoon to a couple of others. But does that. Does this worry you that the game is not coming out. Five this year It's got me worried if it's coming out at all to be honest with you. Well that's what we've been saying for years that it wasn't going to come out and then they this show a trailer for it. I don't know what the thing about that game. I really don't and could you even say it was like it was like a teaser trailer to it. Didn't even show anything so it might be one of those situations where they showed. Final fantasy seven remake and then what six five six years later. It came out more than that it was it was that i was a playstation three Take out there you go. I made obviously we know. A new switch is going to be coming at some point in time. And maybe they're like let's hold off on that until you know this new more powerful system comes out but you gotta figure. They're pretty far along in the development process. You would think like you think so. I mean they've got what they wanna do like. They've all of these games that they've already done. They know the style that they go for so like what's really what's holding them back. I mean understand with the virus and manpower being low but even still how many. How many days ago was that that they show the unintended directs. I mean it was like two or three years. Well this it's been a long time since The day announced that. I mean i was thinking it was near the beginning like they kind of near switch was kind of getting going that they're like. Oh yeah it's coming and that that's probably true. My brain is just like blends together times. I apologize for that. But i just i've been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and if i get persona five on pc. Before i get shimagami ten say on the switch. I want to feel like what what is going on like. I'll go ahead and say you're going to so if that's true so there was the you know there's i've only seen it on that site like you said so i but i've got my fingers cross brother when you talk on that so yeah that's not like a satire sight is that's a real fun website. Yes that's okay. Because i don't know if you read the article but that last line was totally funny that so we're talking about an article that presented five royal is coming to pc and Yeh exclusively to the store which you know they just got kingdom hearts in. What was the last line. The last line was something like a date has yet to be announced win. This game will be released on a platform that people who actually want to buy it on something it was. It was hilarious. Which made me think that. Maybe this isn't real. But yeah i've so that was have i forget the name of that website that it was published. I never heard of it before. And i'm not seeing it on any other website since then. That would be huge news. So i i. I don't know about that one. I know mandic pumped up yesterday. Yes you're you're riyan fired up as a as people should be. And i know you were you were you were just jab at ami weren't really Baseman thing but i was jabbing at you. Because you're always making jabs at me about the pc master. As so i was like. Yeah that it's like i said i am perfectly fine if everybody gets the game. I'm not cool when the elegant and we don't that's weird. That is a little strange. I'll give you that. It is so hopefully that comes true for for all you. Fan boys out there. You can play it. I'll maudit in souped up four k or whatever running at one thousand frames per second or whatever you play at. I don't know but it'll be buttery smooth. I'm sure we'll already was. So i can only imagine how much more will be Other ones that were going out there was. It was kind of weird. There was a bravely default like many trailer in the direct and then they were like stay tuned after after the right for the full final trailer which that was weird. Wasn't it why not just show the whole trailer during the direct so the trailer was kinda long. It was like four minutes but like your your direct is going on for fifty five minutes. You can't throw that in there for like your next title. I don't. I don't get that one. I mean that's splatoon three There at the end was like don't know felt like five minutes. I don't know if it was exactly that long or not. But i feel like they could have given more time to bravely default. It looks pretty cool. The only bravely default that i played was i got bravely second for my three. Ds guy so. I never played the. I ready to fall so i went into that game. Kinda just guessing what had happened and i. I didn't really enjoy it that much. But i think it's because that was supposed to be like a sequel of sorts. And i had zero idea what was going on But i thought the battle. The battle system was interesting with the whole like saving up. The what were they call it. They weren't charges but it was something like that where you could save them up for use them. Yeah i mean it's it's literally the name as you save up your brave points or you default which is blocking To save up that's right. It's it's very cool mechanic. Like i got the first one. And when i played it i didn't love that idea. I just wanted to play. You know straight up like an old school. Jr pg and you do have to use that system quite a bit if you wanted to be successful especially in the boss fights I just think the unreal engine in this game is is really pushing the swishes limits. It looks really really nice. Oh yeah the visuals. were fantastic. That one yeah the one that got a few more days to wait for that one. I think there's nothing really new in the final trailer. That's just shown a probably more than people wanna see squaring awesome for doing that Just just kicked the game out guys. We don't need a trailer each week for these stuff Ah game that people Especially on my youtube channel. That people are going crazy about. They can't wait for saga frontier. Remastered and i don't like i haven't played any of these games. I don't really know but people are really excited for this thing to finally come out and it was supposed to come out in the summer and as part of the direct they announced that is actually coming out april fifteenth. So the rare. Push up in release date. I i give them a little golf clap for for such a move. That's cool absolutely. That is a seriously rare thing was shot of the day of postponements. These guys are the shining star of what we know is good. You can have it early. Yeah so square. Annex finally given some redemption to itself. They're like yeah. We're gonna the developers that actually talked about this a few months ago that the whole process was going extremely well and they might even be able to push up their timetable which they did and then it's coming out for everything. Ps four switch pc via steam ios and android on the fifteenth. And it's only going to be twenty four ninety nine so i think this is going to people. Were just beyond a static about about this announcement. There's some Saga fanatics out there. I wasn't aware of and they. They came out of the interwebs to make it how happy they were about this game coming out so a quick quick question for you sir. Sure Did they show a trailer for crayon shin chan or is that something from maybe like the japanese direct. It could have been. I don't know that one. The name of it is crayon shin chan or hoc-. See no not sue. You're sumi laurie. Ni- nano cocoon. No tubby game. I don't know no wong name sir. It i don't think that would stake if it did. Come over here. oh it's xincheng ish. Yeah is that. And i saw the picture of him. I'm like okay who that is. Yeah i've only seen it briefly but yet they that was not a part of it and calligraphic to was not a part of it there was i guess a japanese one and then there was one for us. So that's the ones that i know of ver- so you have people. I'm sure people can to be really excited about that. But i don't know that one coming this way or not. It doesn't look like no. Everything in japanese does not Vote well for coming over here now. It looks like the cartoon. It's incredible like you wouldn't know that this wasn't i guess animated cartoon but just just like south park. The south park games look just like south park. They did they look just like shenzhen. And that's really cool. Yeah we'll have to see if obviously if it's for the switch you can still play so ladder. I wonder why colegio curricula to wasn't announced the gop. Gee isn't it. But i guess popular over here. It's it's one of those niece ones. It's even within our jonah. It is a little bit lower down in the tier You know we got the first one over here. So i can't imagine this one. Won't they trademarked the logo a few weeks ago so it was rumored that it was coming and yet it was officially announce for ps two in switch. But i don't know why. I guess i just couldn't put together an english trailer so they didn't do that way. That's all i can guess that makes sense There's a ton of information over on commits shared it on our socials but that's when is june twenty-fourth in japan. So they got a while before. It's even coming this way. We will get something on a later. I'll cross my fingers. Because i think i played a demo for the first one and it was cool. Whatever got super into it. It looks cool It's a few riders so they've done some other ones. That looks like you know your standard high school Looks turn based so. I'm at least interested in it. That was always one that jumped out at me that and occupant trip. I think it's called. Or occupants i don't know i don't know anything about those games but i always see the names of 'em and i'm like I need to try those one day. Aqaba was definitely another one that you know it just got housed coming up here not a follow them and i talk about them but aqaba in particular was too weird for me to wanna get. I don't know there's there's some things that are just a little too japanese even for me to dig it. I trust me the neptunia series. I see some stuff in those games. I totally understand what you're getting. Yes yeah that's that's what we do with so that was all as far as gop. Geez were concerned. And so i mean. That's not bad. All things considered it's it's really not. I wasn't anticipating a ton would have been nice for ten say five but maybe just kind of we'll see about that one but for us. The biggest star of the show was the return of mario call. Absolute as soon as that came on. I was just like the old computer you watching my dad enjoy. Everybody's golf so much. And i'm like man. I bet i bet he would like mario golf too. Because it's fun to just sit there and play a couple of holes with him so we'll have to get on. That mario golf trip can absolutely. I've never played a mario golf. But oh my goodness. I always wanted to. I didn't have the system though like A my game cube died while i was away at camp one week. I left on Twilight princess. Because i hadn't film safe point. Yeah and it killed by game. But so i never got to try like mario. Sports games really But i really really liked the way this looked it. Looks right up my alley. I to go gophers luigi all day. Luigi is fun. i always get yoshi. Because that's my boy But yeah you talk and game cube that toadstools tour game. We played it to death. Basically get somebody's together and play. Mario golf Outta there's jeremy bulloch cast but it's okay to be hyped up about games this this one looks and feels like the older everyday you know. Everybody's golf hotshots. Golf games. Which i feel like the newest hotshots completely got away from But this has got some divert of some of those mini games that the new. Everybody's golf has a in as well with running around and speed golf and the speed gold. I can imagine getting four friends together just trying to outrun one another. Go do all the golfing. It'd be fun it will be. And then there's like you can create your own character in level up you know. Get better stuff. there's so there's no rpg elements and everything and this is not not because of that but yeah this is coming out. Mario golf super rush coming out on june the twenty fifth so we may get a bunch of idiots together and play this one. It'll be fun. Oh yeah absolutely. I might even trying to talk ryan into picking it up. Maybe they were a couple of games. That stood out to me that i'd like to talk to you about with that. We can necessarily. Jeez but you know the famicom detective club. Yeah that was interesting. I thought that's really cool. Man that was a famicom disk system series. I hadn't even heard of before to be honest. I don't i don't. I don't think it came out over here and i think it was a jap- japanese only thing and they have it and they're re the two games other two separate purchases but of course they gotta make their money but they looked really cool. There like They reminded me of the ace attorney. Series almost That's that's the first thing that i thought of which is weird. 'cause isn't there an ace attorney game now remastered coming out but not for the switch. I think i heard that the other day the terni trilogy heard anything about a new one. yeah it is turning tricks that came out recently Within the last year i believe. Yeah it's pretty pretty cool. So yeah that's Conduct of club the missing air. And then the girl who stands behind the girl who stands which is a strange name. It is about that there might be some translation going on there that they may But that's coming out. May fourteenth was for thirty four ninety nine each kind of a pokemon deal there. We got about both of them separately maybe to get the whole experience. That's what it seems like and then The world's end club which when it first came on. I'm like is this other world with you type of game but then i'm looking at the graphics and i'm well this was like dangling around pa it is danka. That's the those people isn't it. Yeah and sure enough. Yeah it is. It's the people who did hanging around pa. And if they're new game which says it's going to launch physically and digitally may twenty seventh in japan and may twenty eighth in the west. That's weird waiting the whole day the whole day but the the limited physical addition looks like it comes with some cool stuff in our book. Looks like a little coin. A statue yet. It looks awesome. I guess. ns america's panetta over here in the west and yet it's got a very unique something about it's one of those murder. Mystery type deals isn't it whereby starts dying is that what's going on here. It's anything like the dang and ron paul series. I would assume so. Yeah okay. I would assume so i. I need to watch the trailer but mostly what just stuck out to me was the art style. Yes and it had me confused all the way to the end to the point that i wasn't even paying attention to what they were saying. I'm like what is this. What i should have been doing was listening. And i found out what it was but you know. I think that's what they want you to do like. What is this then. And still yankee watching but yet actually pay attention would be going for but The first one is meet me tovia. That looks interesting Interesting yes i am not sold on it but the whole that you can create me or amis in like make them different people to like if i could create you and make the fill and if i wanted to. I think that's pretty cool. Yeah and it's got like a turn based battle system to it. So i kind of like you know my first jeremy g type experience where some new players into it introduced into some mechanics and yeah kind of use. The the old me idea of you can take the images with the switch. That's pretty cool and pitcher put. Your mom is the the mad guy or a part of your friends. I think that's incredible. That you get some people into for sure. And then the dc superhero girls teen power. Like like. I was like oh. That's cool finally like given a game out there for like the little girls that wants to go beat up bad guys and stuff. I thought that was pretty cool. It does let cool. Like i mean. And i think what the draft was all about as it kinda hit. Everybody like boys girls old new japanese-american everybody had some game in their somewheres. There was maybe a little too much maybe could have been a little more focused but So the only one that i want to talk about. And it may not be the big announcement. I think overall was probably that scour sort is coming hd remastered for the switch. Yeah i would assume so. I never played that one. But i heard neither am bad. Things see. i never heard anything. But good about it. And i only had. I think it was such a weird system right so My parents had a we My my inlaws still have a we. But i never had one and so i never played this one and i hate to be like debbie downer about it but i don't think it looks very get it looked like a we game for sure it it. It didn't look like that. They needed up much now. Now i i guess. I was hoping that if they were going to do that. And i think we were talking about this before you said it looks more like a port. I would have preferred them to actually kind of redo it like they did with the last silva write them. I mean they had to. Obviously that was a game boy game but they redid that one but they kept it exactly the same. I would have preferred them little more time to think this was purely a we know. Breath of wild is is way breath away off. Let's get zelda fan. Something yeah and i. I know people that when that trailer i started. They were really hoping it was going. Be like a wind waker remake. Yeah or something like that. But no i worked i did. I did like that. They added that. You don't have to use the motion controls that you can use buttons too. If you'd like our swing the sword with a stick. Yeah that makes sense to have it both ways that i'm vom with that next. I just wasn't blown away. I'm like i didn't play it. And i heard nothing. Good things maybe something. I'll check out down the road. But yeah it's it's it's coming in should hold people over at least for a little while but i do so reading through the list. One more time one that stuck out to me. That is the one. Probably besides mario golf and project triangle strategy. Whatever it was Besides those the one that height me up the most samurai warriors five okay. I'm a huge warrior's fan like dynasty warriors. And all of those. And i've played a little bit of the samurai warriors version. And it's more of the same and i love it so what. I saw that there was a new one coming out. I was like asking me hordes of enemies to slash through. It looks cool like you dig. That new art saw that they did yeah. It's it's different. But i i like it. It reminds me of fell chronicle upper. Yeah that's an cell shaded arts. Well it may not be but it looks like it. It kind of reminded me of that. Like the like drawn almost The hard edges on the characters in the shading had to do something different. I mean they'd be making the same game for twenty years so do something different. There's been all kinds you hira warriors. Which is the zelda version of warriors game. You know you got samurai warriors you got dynasty warriors. At one point. You had the gun two more years. It's wild to me warriors. I just. I love that. Go in there as your character. Upgrading your weapons and just mowing through i. In dynasty warriors nine my highest kill count was just almost one hundred thousand so you can really get up there if you want to. You just started entire country with one dude on one level so that one doesn't have a release date yet and they're saying this summer for ps four xbox once which an pcv steam so yeah. There's another that trailer out there for people to to check out. It looks pretty cool I've i've played the warriors to when. Ps two came out. And that was mildly real experience with the series but 'bout to get into a warriors game. You what's coming out for you tomorrow. What is that game called. Oh man so sir. I don't hate you all by the way persona five. Strikers is coming out on the twenty fourth and i got the digital deluxe special steam addition. Whatever it's called and it came with some stuff in a along with that stuff it came with it came with Four days early. I play four days early so hopefully on the twentieth i will wake up and be able to download it and sink my teeth into it. That sounds so. I'm i'm super jails. I'm gonna i'm gonna hold back how i really feel about you and you could tell me on my on my show your your your shows a little less. Pg somebody that can really let you know how feel about the whole situation. I i mean. I'm not mad at you. I just think it's kind of a silly move. You know no. I i completely understand. That's like if a new pokemon game came out and they were like by the way it's coming out on police and you can play a week early sony players and everybody on the tend to it'd be like what they would literally just overrun tokyo in protest. There'll be nothing left. Yeah i mean. I love it. That's coming to pc. That's fantastic but just weird. That's a weird move yang. I'm a super excited about it and you'll have to let us know how it goes a weatherman report for us. Oh yeah. I absolutely do that. I think that's i think that's about it We covered a lot of stuff I think it was a good show of role like we said that. Maybe a little too much and left a few things off the table Maybe directs back. Now they took almost a two year hiatus from than they did the mini ones. But be nice to see those come back in a little more often. Perhaps it was nice to hear that. snap again. Yeah there was a law snapping going on which they always do at the beginning of their trailers anyway but So just random topic. How long until we see. Nick switch model who i bet that they announce it during the late summer And maybe at christmas release or maybe shoot for sometime next year. Yeah i mean. I think we're saying plenty of power lift in the system but it's got to begin close. I would assume so man. I mean it's been a few years and nintendos usually pretty quick i mean it didn't take them long to release an updated switch better battery and all of that so. I'm sure that they're working on something new or maybe just a just a pro model. At least i can't imagine this. This thing is going to have to much tread left on the tires now. What would amaze me that they come out with like a hand system that could handle even to k. Wow yeah dea w hd. I think it's called okay. It would be really cool if they could do that. even if that's docked you know if it was ten eighty hand-held and you could play to k. Docked that would be really really sweet. I don't see them being able to pull off. Four k with a system that would be hand held unless away from that route and it wouldn't even matter to be quite frank when you're doing that small It doesn't matter. It's condemned so much anyway. So it'd be nice to have two dogs or four k to gay but that's semantics but that's something like the switch on fire it. It would just laugh at you and japanese or something. We'll do that's all you have and that's all i've got we'll We'll wrap up this part Yeah that's it man. I i look forward to talking to this weekend about some final fantasy twelve year. Yeah have look forward to that Will get your kids out of the room before he listened to our talk on dawn's podcast but our shows Quite quite explicit. At times. And i apologize ahead of time for anything that may offender ears. Be i'm looking forward to talk with their. Thank you so much for coming on. Dalton thank you thank you we'll We'll be back after we'll pause for a second be back with the rest of the week's stories here on the gop g report episode. One hundred and fifty two mega kudos. Thanks to dalton for join us for our big big back at the nintendo directors. Lada information there. So hope you guys enjoyed all that and maybe not as indepth as some of those things as might have normally gotten but That was fun to have a back and forth conversation about it and as more information is revealed we will pass that along to you guys. We've got some other stories. That came out in the past week that i kind of wanted to highlight here at the back. End of the podcast will be along when this week. If you haven't already noticed this came out I think a day after we recorded last week but It was announced at five. Oh five games will publish the rabbit and bear studios developed udine chronicle hundred heroes recalled. Watson's we had any information about this game kickstarter funded. Rpg is planned for a twenty twenty to release is coming out for ps five xbox series x ps four xbox one npc This partnership should just make things a little bit easier to get things out across the globe. i would imagine revenue bear There obviously brand new and just starting up and do not really have the capability to do such a thing so five oh five will hopefully enable them to do that. A bit is your. I is one of those announcements. That you've gotta figure is coming with a new studio. They just i mean were they gonna do. They can't they're gonna have their hands full just making this game Let alone putting it. Together was a partnership announcement video that i shared over on our youtube channel. If you'd like to check that out but hopefully this is going to be A very good development for the game and we'll get it in our hands sooner rather than later the other kind of big one. That came out not long after we got done. Talking was We've talked about this. A little. Bit but I o to- no koseki will launch ps four june twenty-fourth in japan. This is the Action rpg hesitant to say spin off but it was a another series from fell com. That kind of is in the same semi world as the legend of heroes but not connected if that makes sense All the foul com games are loosely. Connected you'll see some Names that are the same and stuff like that but anyway this was coming out june twenty-fourth It will have a to d soundtrack that goes along with it so that's always cool. This from the publisher itself says naoto koseki an ambitious entry into trail series originally released for esp in two thousand twelve that adopts an action rpg style gameplay returns the ps four as the latest entry in the series which are the enhanced ports of older foul com games in addition to new illustrations for the main characters new illustrations of also been added for each the characters that appear on remnant island where the game story is set graphical elements that have been significantly enhanced including dedicated illustrations for event scenes and other visual aspects. There are various other updates to take advantage of the ps four including sixty frames per second high definition image quality and high quality background music and sound effects making it more accessible than ever before there were images that went along with this and If you recall my original thoughts about this game didn't look so good now. I was pretty much looking at the. Ps pay version of it. So yeah it's not gonna look great these new images. At least i haven't seen it in action yet. Images look predicted They did a good job. Really making this look kinda a ps three game. would look maybe. Ps four earlier but It looks a lot more exciting than i thought it was going to. It definitely has a earlier First couple games in the e. series Feel in look to it I originally was hesitant to say this would come over in the west and like all fell com games. There's a not great chance it's going to happen. I'm a little higher on that If if you're gonna percentage i'd say about twenty five percent now it seems to be. They're putting someone behind. It has a release date and anything is possible again with all foul com titles. It would take something like anassa america to make that happen so we shall wait and see. But i think i made a slide show that i think made a slide show for this and put on the youtube channel. If you're interested in checking out those images insane kind of what. This game is all about our device you over there where you can check out. The newest character trailers for aqaba trip held bounded debriefed. This one focuses on the. I think these are two law enforcement officers in the game. said sadako and Read usan like every game do gets around toko Toko is an agent of niro. Which is the national information. Research organization an organization that hunts shadow souls threatened the peace of the land. She is a liaison between the protagonist and the organization and then refugee. Who has an extra. His name is the tokyo's and a key figure of niro. How does his existence intertwined with the protagonist story it s so i kind of through those two actually instead of making them separate. I put them together. And then put on the youtube 's There is a new trailer as we've got one each of the past few weeks for magnum lord. This one is i guess boy wave. Ma uv e. and appears to be some sort of robot Not sure what's going on. There's we don't really have any information other than that and it's a new character. Trailer courses is all in japanese leading up to its March eighteenth for these in japan. So if you're interested in this title he can check out the third character trailer for the game. Two games have hit a very ambitious. Milestone of one million sales Charles of mono- shipmates and digital sales topped one billion around its tenth month after release. It's a pretty cool announcement I i guess participated that it wouldn't you know sell that will and it has. I believe it's still know that it's sounding more but yeah being is not as not a number to be scoffed at. It's pretty cool. And i think it bodes well for the future of the monarchy series. I would love to see a brand new game in this series. I i think it's well do and using this engine would be be just fine with me. The other one that would over me was tells a vespa area definitive kudos to To them for everybody knew that this game winning got released because it was going to happen at some point tom that it would sell well. And it has To commemorate they put the digital version of on selling japan Not sure if that has also been in the west or not. i mean we. This game has been on sale multiple times In the past. So i would imagine that it may be as well right now with the big in japan so i think it is one of those tiles. I'm not sure what the prices on though but an excellent excellent game i really loved playing back through it and It sold well so now if we could just get tells arise Speaking of tales. If you are a crunchy roll subscriber you can check out the tells a fantasia anime I believe they're saying that this is going to be it's now available on the streaming service. You can watch both dubbed and subtitled version in the us and canada. So if you are fan of that or just want to check it out and you have crucial. You can do that right now. seems like every week or or i guess every month we're talking about a new jersey g coming to xbox game pass and in addition to some other titles in to do that see. What's coming out february eighteenth. Ooh today you can get code vein. So that's pretty cool. This is for pc I'm not sure how all this works out with the xbox game pass but it's the pc version of it. I guess. I'm not sure you can get that right now and i'm sure next month we'll be talking about you. Know another one. I if you've been holding out for a physical edition in europe of brigadier on the legend of their era It's coming For playstation four in switch they will have a visible edition of it. What is that in april Not sure the exact day. But it's currently available digitally worldwide. European gamers will have a chance to get a physical copy of it No word outside of europe for a physical edition of it. But i'd have to imagine that was coming soon. Oh okay yeah. In north america limited run games released a limited physical dishes. So maybe they've still got a couple of copies or make another run of that Here pretty soon We're getting very close to release a persona five strikers as indulge Talked about They had their latest trailer called liberate. Hearts come out a few days ago and when is that. They're doing that last team. I think it's either today or tomorrow. The kind of go give people psyched up in four. It's february twenty third release on playstation four switch in pc via steam. I have a actually ordered mine yet. Been kinda waiting And was looking at it. And i don't know if i covered this before. I'm assuming that i did but Best buy actually has still bookcase version of it. So i'm going to Pony up and get that version of it because it's the same price. Sure i wouldn't mind having a Still book percent of strikers next to my still book persona five and royal so. That'll look real nice. So if you've not already ordered it or if you can't get it right fast from getting from best buy few rather you can do that. Hopefully if they've still got stock left a wise man once said that goonies never die while apparently the same is true for final fantasy fourteen so in a recent interview with the washington. Post yoshi pay now go. yoshida Was active asked about the future of the game and He suggested that Fourteen may never end as long as people keep returning. He also suggested there's at least another five years of content for the game so that's pretty encouraging the least. I guess that was probably the assumption. As i mean shoot foul fancy eleven is still thank all these years later so why not have. It's still going on especially with. I'd had some point. It's going to continue on playstation five as opposed to ps four for five years from now maybe onto the next one but if you are a longtime player of the series that's what you want to hear is that there's more stuff coming in. You can continue enjoying it for a long time to come There was a couple of images released for the mobile version of us six online The arc of. I'm sorry don't you tell me how to say this name but i don't know i'm not gonna even try so you six online there was six new images that came out for it and It looks good. I'm just gonna say the the images look good okay. This is a mobile title coming into japan. Sometime in spring twenty. Twenty one. no word if it's ever gonna come to the west. I'd say probably not You can pick it up on. Pc is that version. The version of the game was loose. Back in twenty fifteen Not sure the big differences between this one and that one does like to be updated with graphics and taking advantage of debate. Quite frankly power of these. New mobile devices is pretty extreme and Can make some some decent looking games. one final thing to mention about the upcoming near replicant game About a week ago. We got ten minutes of new footage from the baron temple. I guess that's a Location looks like it's the desert You can check that out of course on our youtube channel The game looks so sweet in motion. It is everything that you would probably could hope for from a near gain. of course. the game is coming out on april. The twenty third worldwide. Be up the day before for. Ps four and xbox one and in asia and then the next day the twenty third in north america and europe there was also word that When it comes out there will be some free deal. See that will add weapons and weapons stories into the game so there is an image going along with each weapon has like a story behind it. Which i thought was pretty fascinating Usually you're lucky if you get anything about the weather but each one of these weapons seems to be some sort of a detailed history to it too. Maybe you know connecting games at some point in time that would be pretty interesting as well There's some new image that just came out today for the game. I'm we'll put all those together into a little slide show you can check those out Talking about two new characters called once called the king facade and the other one is fire. New locations include the village in the northern plains. The aforementioned barron temple was showing off some of the combat in these screen shots and it looks pretty pre incredible. The lased as as well as the magic is going to come out in this game and the image shows off that a weapon story that i was talking about You can look for all that stuff over on our youtube channel. All the trailers we talk about each week video versions of our podcasts. As well as archives of our livestreams that we do each night right. now we're still trying to plow through a delia. Rosza to Before strikers comes out in a couple of days. I've got some work to do but man more so than i really remember. Maybe it's just taken me a bit longer to do but you've got to hit the alchemy so hard in this game. You can spend an hour to just kind of upgrading your stuff. And of course each time you get a new one you can try to upgraded new recipes to get better weapons you spend as much time if not more in the alchemy part of it as you do in the actual game and you don't like that idea but it's actually pretty cool instead of going to a shop and buying new equipment you get to make it yourself and really you know fine tune in how you want. I guess i'm work to do before. Strikers comes out as i mentioned before we had had to put a pause on the On the livestreaming during the day. Just don't really have the time for right now. I'm trying to focus on some areas and really define what it is that i want to do as far as that goes. And that's just not something. I'm able to pursue at this point. I think we're always going to have the livestreams at night. May change up the where that's going to i'm looking at twitch and and those possibilities but there's a lot to be decided and whatever it is it's going to be excited exciting and hope you guys are along for the ride. That's going to wrap it up for this episode over an hour this week. as me and dolan just We gotta talk. And that's the way it goes some weeks way back again next week with fresh new podcast for you guys but Till then my name is james fisher. Thank you so much for tuning in this week and every week.

Be cool if while came to console though. I think that would be just you know. I'm happy with eso but i would probably if y if while came to console i would probably play. Wow to never. Winter is a pretty good replacement. I must say i mean like that's got a very good well field more so than esso esso just makes my soul saying i know it is what it is. It is already moving on destiny creator. Bungie has stated that they plan on expanding the universe into additional media. Be that tv show movie book.

If six for fourteen ninety nine it has these single player campaign updated controls and is an hd remastered or now xbox players. They added the original game original xbox game to the backwards compatibility list. And you can play it on both old and new systems. But i guess we don't get the updated hd version but that's okay. That's fine. whatever. I kind of care but i mean i guess not too much right. Nah i do care a lot but it's okay. I just feel like that's one of those. Everyone hates xbox moments. But it's okay do weekend. Sony is bringing play at home back. The service that came out due to Kovic quarantine and all that such that still often on going on but It started last year and it is coming back next month and supposedly going through june. Next month you'll be able to get the ratchet and clank. Ps four version.

Walk walk. 'em i've never heard of that one. I don't. I'm not familiar with that one. All right. they'll have an extended access period. That's pretty neat. Yeah that's right. Did her stansted Extends did oh my god all right. i'm not gotcha. Spivey owners are on their way to having their own vr. Oh my god brainwork it's going to be coming out next year. Hopefully but definitely not this year and sony already said that it is better than the previous technology because they have updated the field of you and they're supposed to be better resolution and it's only supposed to have one core that flexing in an incident the whole mess that got going right now. That's nice a right. The controller is also supposed to have some of the features that the ps fives desens- has with the haptic feedback and the trigger like Tension stuff. i don't know what the official name was for that. But i thought that was pretty neat. That would add more to the interactive that engagement of the vr and finally twisted metal is coming back as a live action. tv show who is asian exclusive hasn't had a new title out since two thousand twelve. The idea of this show was mentioned in twain. Nineteen and there are now people being signed on meikeljohn. It's jonathan smith. Excuse me Who was behind.

Zombie land reese and weren't so that's going to be pretty exciting all right attached to this because as far as i could find. There's not public knowledge that we know of of any filming locations or actors or anything like that but considering who's behind it right now i'm pretty excited and i think that it's going to be really good. I have high hopes for it. If they mess it up a shame on them. Shame on them. So yeah go. But i don't know what do you what do you think punisher did you ever have. You seen anything on twisted metal.

Breaks in smoke breaks however in the grand scope of the game. These were fairly minor issues. So the story begins with commander. Shepard's discovery of an ancient beacon belonging to a long extinct race called the theuns the beacon plants a warning and shepherds mind of the imminent return of a race of sentient machines called reapers that appear to exist only to systematically wipe out all organic life in the galaxy every fifty thousand years after becoming a spectre agent for the citadel council armed with the help of a team that includes members of various species and sporting a state of the art ship called s. s. v. normandy shepherd embarks on a mission to save the galaxy from total annihilation. You can choose from six different character classes each with their own abilities. Fighting styles and weapons specialties. There are also three different back stories. You can choose your character as well as psychological profiles stage for how you are. Viewed within the whole mass effect universe these add renegade or gone points upon startup depending on which profile you choose the higher your paragon bar the more persuasive heroic your character can be and it brings the most positive outcome to a situation and the higher renegade bar the more intimidating and villainous. Your character can be with more negative attitudes to situations and both affect how squad mates an mp sees react to and interact with you. You can form a romance with someone if you want to or you can totally kick it solo and during the game there are several major choices that alter the story line and have repercussions in later. Games your previous choice of back story and character profile osso affect the story along with the content although the latter is not required the combat system is good with access to a pull up action wheel that allows the player to control teammate. Abilities us character special abilities revive fallen squad. Mates and swap weapons keeping teammates up to par with armor weapons and upgrades can be time consuming. But very worth the effort during a boss fight or when fighting off hordes of enemies teammates can be custom leveled or auto level depending on preference low level characters. Have to be aware of things like weapon. Overheating which can be tenths during a battle as you level up better gun upgrades become available to help with issues like overheating check containers vendors and the requisition officer aboard the normandy for special goods to help keep everyone's day combat ready many vendor sell licenses which can be purchased for the requisition officer that give access to various gear and upgrades your character can ultimately reach level sixty however this requires a couple of play throughs after beating the game. You can go back to the main screen. Start a new game and you can choose a pre existing character profile to divac in from beginning and continue leveling up with the same character which i just have to brag on is a fan. It's brilliant is the expiration in. This game is amazing and breathtaking. Traveling from star system to star system by way of mass. Relays you can reach anywhere in the galaxy within hours. Instead of years once planet side in the mako a vehicle that seems to defy gravity to the extreme no mountain is ever to hire. Steep and carsick is an understatement. Your character can explore vast landscapes varying from frozen tundras to blistering desert's red wastes too. Green paradises lost relics from bygone times and obtain minerals for extra xp and currency while exploring it should be noted that many containers doors and random objects like down probes and satellites are locked and cannot be picked or opened without having a character proficient electronics and decryption skills. So pick your squad wisely on these outings. It's not required to play all the side missions. And quests you pick up on your travels across the galaxy however it often ties in with what's going on in the main story as well as setting the stage for interactions in later games. So it's worth doing to get the fullest experience. The dialogue is good. All around very in depth with each character bringing their own unique voice outlooks backstories and beliefs to the table. Mass effect hosted a few notable voice actors including keith. David seth green and marina searches so that mass effect. I would recommend by the way looking at a walk through to get an idea of how the play options that are available and a couple of good sites are www dot gamespot dot com and f- extra life dot com. They have some really good walk-throughs also they have a drew carpathians bitcoin. Casey hudson moderate one to drew they do have books actually actual books that are prequels to the game and they also have books now for drama. So i re- i own them. And i would highly recommend because they do fill in a lot of the the earlier storyline and it just makes it that much more. It just encompasses the whole thing. It's so great. I'm such a for thank you. Everyone oval that's Thank you thank you before. I get anywhere with this commentary. Thank you put assured that was awesome Gene i agree. I honestly love joker and great character and now of course. It's seth green you know like it just makes sense that it's him. I actually well. I'm really excited to like marina certes. When i found out she was in their very first time. I absolutely was like 'cause trekkie. That's yeah ola. Old counselor troi there she is. She did really good as a and she is. In fact the wait wait wait wait it starts with the be a bear bear. Baron zia okay. I love how you got okay. So it's panacea but i love. I love how you got. A cross between elder scrolls is baron zaia and massachusetts vanezis. You know great okay. That's that's who it is. She plays a really convincing. Bad chick. Like honestly really does okay tyler. No you have literally no excuse because this has been years years that we've been talking about this your down and play it and i will say that i particularly liked to. I have not played three myself now. But i have a very good reason why i listen okay so i played one on one xbox three sixty then i played two on. Yeah yeah it was on the second one. That's that's where i got hung up. I played on a second xbox three sixty but it wouldn't let me import the character. Even though i had transferred my safe data because either because it's not the original xbox that the first game it's not the hard drive itself that the game was saving. I moved all of that. I had people helped me with that. Like i literally would have had to have started the game on the first hard drive and then moved that the new one and then played from there. But i didn't have access to it anymore. How cia and that made a root for so. I'll say why because accidentally got character killed the first sign because i played and i wanted to suffer from that the entire place through and because i i know but it's because i was dumb enough to do it and i wanted to killed that early like i or did you. No no. I don't want to say i don't want snow. So wheeler apology. I yeah no later. We're talking about this. Because i'm very confused i wanna know there's there's a character that could die and you know exactly what i'm talking about and i know the first one. Yeah so second. I know that was my back one. God do you see what i have to deal with. Do you see guys. Yeah but yes aright. And i will strangle me on your desk. Thank you i appreciate. And i also have played indraught because i haven't played three. Tracy you said play. Two three and heaven beaten android. I you know what is honestly worth it. I think it's good. I don't like it as much as two. But honestly the graphics were the worst part of it i love the storyline. The storyline was great. Especially when it come in like if you pay attention to like the back the the there's things in the game that you can listen to like recordings and it tells a little bit of fun stuff a little bit of fun stuff just a little.

The sequel to the nineteen seventy-nine arcade game lacks in right here right and was followed by a third in eighty four called Gap plus i believe is how you would say that which look that. Look how cool that look. That really does like killer. That was neat looking. That's a big bug. Right itself can be stressful. I am not very good at this. I i would have to sit and really focus on this to be able to To get far farther in the levels your starship As many people know moves side to side there we go. Hi behind it it when we move over here all right how. Your goal is to destroy enemy ships. I mean it's pretty pretty straightforward right. There it is the big boss gallagher ship and you can. They try to capture your ship with their tractor beam. You can shoot it as it comes down if as long as you have life and it you'll like attached to it and it'll be a double fighter mode and you can destroy like suit like all kinds of enemies and it's awesome would if you don't have a life what if you're like me i you'll see like i remember. Tyler helped me out here. Because i remember you said this one you you mentioned that i saw it listed and i was like What like. I can't think about what i don't know. Do you just die.

Horn hornet in on that hornets are yeah horny tar and not to be hurt or anything discovered it on a plug and play controller and it's been a household name sets. That's nice a little bit. You think of the sound the ship makes when it shoots and the tractor beam sound Yeah like honestly. I don't really think about. I've not played it enough to be able to like default. be like. oh yeah. that's the way that it sounds. But whenever i do play. It's like familiar sounding. I dunno. I think those sound effects have been used multiple times. I've just got to throw that out right now. i'll listen. I can still like a newer games. I can hear like enhanced sounds from older games occasionally and can we mention that star. Wars is like the master. Recycling noises like sound effects. The paddle fried and like there's a couple of months start playing the songs and it puts be right back in a shows in the higher. Like right back like do you remember level. When you're jumping down the train like down there just slander. The fact that starts playing that and just hits me in the heart so and the hard right in their great. My god maybe be to at odyssey.

Because you know we're mean jean. Hickey are going through sons of anarchy and we just did season to this week and they do a cool thing on that show every show ends but like a two three four five minute montage to music and last week it was son of a preacher man by but it was sung by cathy.

When people listen to what happens with the xbox controller people are going to be shocked he worst are going to be shocked about the change the xbox controller and twenty twenty one. Thank you for that one. Greg thank you to our patriarch producers. Blackjack and tom balked today. Brought to you by door nash. magic spoon. But i'll tell you about that later for now. Let's begin with what is forever will be the rope reports did it did it did it did it did it did it did it did it is time for some news. We have seven stories today. Dory blessing i can hear him from his room was still going here him here again. When you guys references reference this when like whenever my voice cuts out or whatever the like. The kids can't hear that they actually hear me. It's discord that's fucking. It's like the discord gaining. That's fucking it on your because your your pop into the ob. You're popping through lbs. Yeah and by the way to one of our producers. Tom bach who asked Is is bio- mutant worth it No i gave up on it and it looks like they are going to fix everything in the game. So league gets better. Oh that's very exciting. Andy let's start off with our story number. One intend has officially announced their e three. I'm pulling from tom. Warren at the verge nintendo's holding an e three event on june fifteenth and the company promises. It'll be focused. Exclusively unintended switch games. Mainly releasing in twenty twenty. One of direct presentation will begin at ninety m pacific time on june fifteenth and intendo hold three hours of game deep dives once. The event has concluded nintendo's warning suggest we won't be seeing anything hardware related at the company's e-3 show a switch pro has been rumored for months which with recent reports suggesting maybe announced ahead of three swish is imminent nintendo's e three show would be the perfect opportunity to show how how games run at four k anti demonstrate the power of in videos latest chip and dale s support as three kicks off in virtual form on june twelfth. There are only ten days left. Deceived intendo is ready to announce it updated switch ahead of e three to add a little more context. Ten tweeted out about this this morning. There tweet reads like this intendo at hashtag e. three twenty twenty one june fifteenth nine. Am pacific time tune in for a nintendo direct with roughly forty minutes of info focused exclusively on hashtag intendo switch software mostly mostly releasing in twenty twenty one followed by around three hours of game. Play an nintendo treehouse. Live indie. we did our whole predictions episode yesterday. Talking about what to expect from e three thousand before we got this big announcement from nintendo giving us a little bit more insight about what we can expect from e three forty minutes of an antenna direct. Andy does that do anything for you. And your hype. Who my gosh. Of course it does forty minutes of not only software but software that is mostly releasing in two thousand twenty one. That's the huge part of this tweet. That is kind of insane to me. Because i think that in the back of my mind. I've been playing this a lot safer and assuming that everything is twenty twenty two now just with just with cove it and how it's affected everything. I've just kind of like if something gets delayed. The twenty twenty two on not surprised. I'm sort of preparing myself for the sadness ride. But good lord. I mean. This is huge news. You know i'm really starting to wonder. What are the exact titles that we're going to get you know. Is it going to be the donkey. Kong game is going to be. I mean surely won't be metro pint four because they're just they just hired like a new whatever writer. I feel like metro. Prime four is always coming out with news of their hiring a new program or a new gameplay designer or whatever but i mean we gotta assume breath a wild to we gotta assume I mean shoot splatoon. Three even -bility get call. I mean yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if that showed up there because we now we've got the. We got the announcement trailer for that recently. That's the thing that's very exciting for this for me is that i think sky's the limit when it comes to what they can show off forty minutes of content. I think that is a that points to a substantial direct which isn't surprising because it's three and it's usually does do substantial directs around e. three. Nothing's ever really given especially when it comes to the nintendo and so i'm excited to see that we're getting that links them saying that. It's focused on software mostly releasing in twenty twenty one. That's hype. Because i think that does to the fact that they're going to fill out this year and four a year that is filled with question marks from nintendo. That's really cool. We know we're getting Mario golf we know we're getting No more heroes. And we know that we're getting pokemon but that's about it and so the idea that we're going to get forty minutes of content focused on stuff more stuff that's coming out. I think we can expect that. Hopefully fill out the year a bit more that along with three hours of gameplay nintendo treehouse. Live that gets me excited because that feels like rich. Truly like nature is healing. It's real getting back to you. it's e-3 And they're surely. You're gonna have something to show and i guess my question is like what is the tentpole. And is it really breathable out to you. Know that's a prediction. We're mostly competent. And because it feels like it's time we've had reports domino switch pro and within which pro you imagine that they want to time that somewhere along the lines with legends dollar breath of the wild. Do you think we're gonna get substantial content out of that. Do you think at that treehouse. We're going to get a lot of breath gameplay. I'm kind of worried about it. Only because i i don't know if the tree house will do anything pro related and i think that they are going to want to have breath wild to and the pro or whatever the hell we're going to call it i think they wanna have them really go hand in hand with with one another and you know not. You're not able to mention one without the other because you're gonna see this much bigger world than higher frame rate and better resolution. And i don't think treehouse live is the place to do that. I think maybe we see a lot of poke him on. I think maybe we see. I mean shoot with the with the news at pok. Mon archea says out in february. Maybe we see stuff about arcus. Legends are ceus chat. let me know I'm not reading latest scientists still scientists still out there. We're still waiting on. That commute community was kinda still working on that. But yeah i yeah. I don't know blessed. I don't know if we show birth of the wild to if this is sort of promised to not be a hardware show like i don't know if they say here's breath of the wild and also and here's breath of the wild. You know up to three hours of gameplay even though. I'm sure we're gonna see a lot of other games in that three hours. You play session for sure. But i don't know if we do that immediately. Without at least acknowledging the switch pro exists. I mean. I know yeah s
