"Consoles, players can finally claim who's the best in the world with the new one V one arena in training mode and the 17.2 update. Yeah, what do you guys think? Yeah. Warped kart racers. I was like, I'm kind of interested. What could this possibly be? Guess what it is. So it's a kart racer. It's warped. I'm assuming it's probably taking things like King of the Hill, Family Guy American Dad, other shows like that and having them race against each other? That's an excellent guess, Greg, you're correct. Number one games journalist right here. I read the press release about it. Yeah. I wasn't sure how much time we'd have, but yeah, it's a kart racer with all your favorite Fox cartoons. Okay, why has it got such a terrible fucking name? Why would you call this animation fox's animation domination kart racer? I don't know. But someone warped cars to someone that would ring a bell for why I should fucking care about this game. Guy can't wait to raise his Bobby. But here in the chat, gas me. Yes, Jasmine says no Simpsons, no buy. I understand. You got to have to have a hill to die on. Barrett. I don't know why, 'cause you guys are nothing alike, but I love the idea of Bobby hill being a very outfit. I love Bobby hill. And if he's a variant in another multiverse situation, I would love that. That's my purse. I don't know you. New dates for you, as I said, yeah, but was that through all these nodding? Okay, Lovecraft's untold stories too is launching may 17th on PC Mac and Linux. And then the messiah will launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S and PC on August 9th. Tim, clear your mind, rapid fire question, Joel white says, what does Tim think of the new Samsung oled TVs? Very, very exciting stuff. Finally, oled technologies getting a little bit competitive, which I think LG kind of needs. LG kind of holding down right now is just like the good default, especially for gamers out there. You're still going to want to go for the C two C one, CX situation going on because I think right now they have the best value proposition for price to size to gaming experience with all the video game focused stuff. Sony's really killing the game in terms of picture quality in terms of movies where you're really going to get like the best kind of frame rate and like the smoothest picture. But what's cool about Samsung right now is they got the QD OLED thing going. And we'll see how that all goes with this quantum dot. It means that one of oled's biggest downfalls right now is its brightness. The peak brightness isn't that high. In terms of nits. So this is allowing it to be a little bit brighter. Actually, a lot bit brighter. But with that pro comes some cons where it starts to look a little bit unnatural potentially. So it's really kind of what your taste is looking for. If you're looking for more reference quality or if you're looking for just like burn out your retina's brightness, which there's definitely appeal to. Of course. We asked people watching live on twitch.tv slash kind of funny games to go to.

"Is and forever will be my I just went through puberty and we're forever will be. For some new. 5 items on the rubber report. A baker's dozen. Number one, prince of Persia, the sands of time, remake, is changing game developers. We'll start with the official word. Excuse me. Oh my God. It's fucking game. The official word for the prince of Persia Twitter account that put up this image slash letter. Hello, prince of Persia fans. The development of prince of Persia, the sands of time, remake will now be led by ubisoft, Montreal, the very birthplace of the epic stands of time trilogy. The decision is an important step in the team built the decision is an important step and the team building upon the world achieved by ubisoft poon poon. Yeah, pin, as I was on. And ubisoft Mumbai will now take the time they need to regroup on the scope of the game to deliver you the best experience for this remake of an all time classic when it's ready. We want to thank you all for your continuous support and patience throughout the development. Rest assured that we will update you on the progress in the future. This is ubisoft starting work on this game with Mumbai going down that path and then being like, no, no, no, that's not how it happened. Rewinding back to here. Now we're trying to a different path through the obstacle course, Greg. I think only good news can come from this at the end of the day. I think that this is a very, very sad story. I wish it wasn't the case. I wish this game was already out and already amazing. But developing games is hard. And I think that what we see here is a group that really tried their best. They put this in the hands of a team that was inexperienced and not ready for this, but I think it's kind of cool that they gave them the chance to try, right? That sucks for us as gamers and consumers that want to play this, but I do think that it's cool that they let them try this long. To get this right. And they're clearly hitting a point that it's not working out for them. Now so they're moving it over to Montreal, which gives me hope of like, okay, cool, maybe now there's a chance this game actually comes out in the next two years and is actually good. Two years, come on. Here's some context for you from Tom Ivan over at VGC. The game, which was with the game, which has already been delayed on several occasions, was previously in development at Indian studios. You saw Kuhn and ubisoft Mumbai. Prince of Persia, the sands of time remake has been in development for two and a half years when it was announced in September 2020. Following a negative reaction to the game's reveal trailer, its director said ubisoft had chosen to give the remake quote a unique visual treatment to make it stand out from other titles. Prince of Persia, the sands of time where you make was originally planned to release in January 2021. But it has suffered multiple delays. It was most recently scheduled to release during ubisoft's current fiscal year, which ends March 31st, 2023. But today's announcement suggests that may no longer be the case. Ubisoft Montpelier is a reportedly working on an unannounced 2.5 D prince of Persia game, which is said to take inspiration from moon studios Ori series. Okay, who first off? Fuck all the bad news. Thank you, Tim. I was like, are we buried the lead? When did I remember every hearing about this? Oh my God, that sounds like a dream come true for me. That sounds incredible. I don't know that development team, but a 2.5 prints a Persia with Ori influence? Yes, please. That sounds fantastic. But now okay, now let's go back to the other thing. I still don't think what I'm saying about two years is that crazy. This is a remake of a fairly short game all things considered. And it seems like from what we've seen, the biggest issues are the more graphical, but like this is far along in development already and this was years ago. So they've been working since 2018. And today throwing in the towel on it. I imagine you're just starting from scratch to some degree. Like I don't know if they're coming into fix what's happened before, if there's like, because again, if you're especially if you're now Sony eyes have been on this, so much has happened. It's tainted meat. It's tainted meat is what they're screaming right now over at you. We saw Montreal, right? And so you get it in there. You're going to sort through what's usable and what's not usable. I think they're going to sit down and be like, all right, we got to kind of go from scratch on this. I think that even started from scratch though, like, look, I'm not a scientist, but at the end of the day, applying remake logic of how long it takes games to be from the ground up, it's kind of made like a demon souls or the Resident Evil two Resident Evil three. I don't think that two years with, it's not starting from zero. It may be starting way further back than they'd like to. I think they were going to see this in two years. Or we don't ever see it. I don't think that's the other thing. Is it just vaporware that'll never actually happen? Is it beyond good and evil two? We just never going to see this yet. But it's like, it's the opposite of that. If y'all get an evil is like the highest scoped game of all time, prince of Persia is a 8 hour PS two game. Yeah? Linear. This is the remake. Yeah. It's add new stuff. I'm sure ubisoft's trying to get me to buy some. He looks credits for it. I probably put a nice world map on there, so a whole bunch of different things. Maybe a lot of generating me to go through a lot of bloat that you got to grind through. I'm going to go find a new sound. Tim, while I'm here while we're in this ubisoft talking about principal stuff, let's go to xfire dot com. Where march 21st, 2022, Tom Henderson filed this exclusive..
Auburn Head Coach Bruce Pearl's Reaction to Ukraine Situation
"This week the Jewish people are celebrating the festival of porn And poor him is a celebration of what Queen Esther did Queen Esther was with the king of Persia and the palace and she was Jewish And Heyman was a very close adviser to that king And he was advising the king that maybe it was time to get rid of all the juice Queen Esther's uncle was more high My Hebrew name is Morgan And I think that my family gave me that name for this reason Once I talked to Esther the queen had said look Esther you might survive this for a little while But you won't survive this He's really going to kill all the Jewish people and your family And he gave us to the courage to try to see if she could turn the king's heart and she did And saved the nation So some of you may be uncomfortable You guys asked the question right You asked the question about Ukraine We say never again I was born in 1960 15 years after they opened up the Gates And they saw 6 million Jews were murdered And 3 million more people And so if Tara Vera and van der veer wants money for three pointers I'll up whatever they're offering I mean I'm all in healthier Ukrainian people survive that And I'm very concerned about what's going on in Iran with the king of Persia now And if we embody that government give them all that money sign a bad treaty It's going to put the world in jeopardy
Israel: A Nation With No King
"I'm talking to our friend Bill Federer. You can find him at American minute dot com and other places. He's written many wonderful books. Bill, you were just sharing something that is really not often enough mentioned. It's almost never mentioned. So take us back before we have king Saul roughly a thousand BC for 400 years after between Moses and Saul. We have millions of people, the nation of Israel, effectively governing themselves. What am I missing? Right, so Yale has on its coat of arms. Hebrew characters. The scholars at this time were called Christian hebraists, John Sadler, whose sister Anne married John Harvard. You had all these different scholars studying this first 400 year period when Israel came out of Egypt before they got king song. Now, one of my books I wrote is called who was the king in America? And I actually spent a few years researching every century of recorded human history from the elamites, which became Persia to the Assyrian to the neo Assyrians, the Babylonians to Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, 2000 years of Egyptian pharaohs, 5000 years of Chinese emperors, Indian maharajas, the whole world, the most common form of governments, kings. And with military advancements, these kingdoms get bigger to find the king of England had the biggest. But the first instance in recorded human history of a nation with no king is Israel that first 400 years when they came out of Egypt. So 1400 BC, give or take a couple century Israel comes out of Egypt and for 400 years, no can. We don't really appreciate it until you realize when you look at all the other countries. That this is the first instance in all of recorded human history of a nation with millions of people in no

You know that's going to happen at some point. The full striptease way later. I mean way later in the game. But it's definitely cool all right. I think they should bring us to shelf stack. Orbach and i'll go first I should say and every office notes. You're good Like stack means something you like but not as much boxing. Something you dislike so this for me is going to go in the stack.

Don't they also see the fans go there is is. It's a it's a ram issue is honestly what it is is because the game is taking up so much ram to remember for the rewinding they can only have so many characters scriptures to in persia thing like the combats always terrible i think it literally every persia game the combat Bad i recall that warrior within was supposed to be more combat focus. And i think people belt against it topic is tone more combat focused and they add new metal to all the fights just new metal dual wielding god. You're so stupid and then forgotten sands it's like well. This is how the prints turn dark. And then into thrones like you know. That was kind of weird. Let's chasing this dark. That i it was the age of jack to every game. Was doing that jack to though good game where within not not as much i kinda wanna play it again though after this. It's so much fun playing signs of time because what is it were within is like the second one and then forgotten is it not is it. Two kingdoms or something to thrones. They try to course correct. And the forgotten came out years later with the jake jalen hall movie and i think one and two yeah takes place between one and two. And there was the re the reboot with north of that. It is a good game but people pretty like it. It's gorgeous. They live they still sell. They don't have an ending on that game and they sell it for ten dollars. They still sell it on the xbox it hasn't ended you just have to buy the deal for ten dollars. Still i've i've heard some people say it's better without that like the is more interesting. If you don't do that okay. I never finished it i should. I really liked the game highly recommended. It's randomly still on sale. I've seen on the xbox marketplace for like five to ten dollars right. Now it's twenty but not worth twenty four. I i have it on. I think okay you talk about the enemies yet. Not really i mean.

"Yeah you know that's series was over at the i. I actually went back and played the the first three d one. Recently which was. Also kind of a reboot although one from ninety nine played the dreamcast port. Which i think had some changes and even know that existed till by today. It's it's weird early. In the pandemic. I tried to play through it again and got to the final level in that game is absolute bullshit. But i enjoyed it. This games a lot better. Yeah no i kinda just thought. It was cool. That princeton persia was coming back and reclaiming a lot of what it did. Well 'cause i the that cinematic platformer genre had sort of been dominated by tomb raider through the the poll previous generation and tomb. Raider plays a lot more like old pc prince of persia and this is like yes. No what makes principia cool is is fluid movement. It's trial and error platforming. Its environmental puzzle. Solving and i think this modernized all that and really cool way. I think they really nailed it with this game. Did you ever play the gb principal By chance the came out alongside this they know similar. They look similar. I didn't even know. I didn't know it existed. We're doing this. We started talking about the wiki. I'm actually watching along of that right now. It later before. Check him out. I i don't know how good they are there. In the style of that another i played the pirates of the caribbean. Gb game the first one is also just prince persia today with pirates. Always looks cool. It looks like a two d platformer where you climb and you start. It looks very interesting. I play it now. i did so fluid. I wanna play this. I did play the xbox three sixty remake of the first which had the sands of time and that game wasn't particularly good. But it was. It's cool that it exists. I mean i. I was never a fan of the original games. I play the mantra pretender. I pry random at one random time or another. And i didn't never liked him. Never stuck with me when this game came out. I think it was explained that price on me because of the rewind feature. 'cause i suck at video games. Then it's a built in safe state. Yeah with one. But yes. And i actually my actually. My mom had bought me this game for christmas or something. But i know she bought me this game. I remember asking her to get it which was uncommon for me that only really ask for. Rpg's usually 'cause they were always record. I before i before. I had a job and i remember asking for this game. Never beat a dope back then. I played it a bunch. But i wasn't. I wasn't good. I got stuck somewhere. And i fell off and went back to pg's and it wasn't until years later. That i finally beat it. It's long it's long. I thought it would be. Yeah remember people saying oh this. Game's really short neal. You'll finish it in a weekend. Like i did but five. Today's standards for these. These cinematic platformer skips pretty long working hours. Yeah yeah. I've been on a few of these episodes against my mom found. And when i cherry pick the ones that are only like ten to fifteen hours but like with an rpg versus this like you're always on in prince persians of time you are. You're never like just like walking to a destination for twenty minutes. We know or chatting with somebody for ten minutes. You're always like edgier. I'm about to die for for hours on like a runs..

"Books. I'm talking to amanda race. You can go to her youtube channel. Follow her amanda. Yes the word from god. It was very clear that this is going to be a breaking point.

Jesus christ by the spirit of the living god may only the truth come forth in jesus mighty name amen amen. Now though the this the way this goes is the lord talks about the breaking point and then he goes into the threats that are gonna come from iran and other nations okay so he starts with the breaking point and he say ways into iran making threatening destructive statements you know not only hezbollah but this funders from other countries involved in this that wanna make an iran and extension of them so basically the lord is warning he also says it was going to be a leader within the ayatollahs court that was going to suddenly fall as a sign.

Purim Torah - Anna Solomon
"Anna solomon. Welcome to judaism unbounded. It's really great to have you. It's great to be here. So we've been doing this series on the bible and it's really exciting to be able to talk to somebody who's written a what you call exactly a biblical novel. A you know that generates itself from a biblical story. But i love to start by understanding like how you chose to write a novel based on the biblical story. You know you've written other books before wh what was the process that brought you to take this on the initial impulse really came from a children's book that i was given to read to my own kids which was sort of a children's version of the book of esther. I expected it to be simpler somehow or to kind of make the book of esther more straightforward and it turned out didn't it all in it actually raised all of the questions that had always had about the book of esther but it was like wait a second. Why was it that. I was always told that esther was really virtuous and it turns out. She's concubine a harem. And what about this fusty character. Who seems to actually have made what we would consider to be the quote virtuous choice by saying no. I won't parade make it. There were all these questions and then plot holes Hush worse who it seems by the end is sort of shocked by what heyman has been doing. This genocide earlier on is like yeah. Sure whatever you know. There's just so many there's so many sort of plot holes and inconsistencies and and my kids had all sorts of questions and it kind of made me want to go back to the book of esther itself and investigate on which is not something. I really have a lot of experienced with the local tax that that was the initial impulse that drove me back with all of these questions. You know a lot of times on this podcast. We've talked about wanting to have people. Will we call regular jews. You know people that are unauthorized. Feel empowered to take on jewish topics and jewish practices and reimagine. Them and a lot of people are intimidated to do that because they say well. I'm not a rabbi. I didn't study. How do i know how to do you know and so. I really love to talk to somebody who's done that kind of day. She's move of saying well. I'm going to really you know. Come to this. Not as somebody who's had a tremendous amount of expertise before i started and i'm curious both about the process of getting started. And did you feel intimidated in that way. And how did you get over it. And also the process of like. How much research did you do until you felt confident to the point of saying okay. Yeah i actually can write a novel about this or like you say i can contribute mid rushed to this book which you know other people say well i mean who are you after. Two thousand years totally. It's a great question. And i am absolutely a regular jew as you said i love that term and i think actually the what you said so the the research was totally tied into my getting to a point of being able to say i can do this but but not in the way. You'd expect not so much. Because i got to a point and i i felt like i knew enough it was because i got to a point and i realized that no one knows and so it gave me the freedom to go in. You know. I mean. I i began by going to my rabbi. This is in park slope brooklyn congregation. Bethelehem rachel to moaner. She's really wonderful. Insertive saying pronounced guest. Oh yeah She so great. And i said you know where do i even start and i was really open about how little i knew and she really you know is like in her office. So here's where you can even begin to go looking for interpretations translations other stories Mid rush of course. And i think for me one of the things that was very freeing in particular was was reading. The very ancient rabbis takes on The book of esther which were wild like really really wild things. That don't have any seem to have any basis in the book itself like in one hayman's daughter Heenan has a daughter first of all and she mistakes heyman for mortified or the other way round in in prayed and drops feces on his head on her father's head and it's like where does that come from in in many things like this and i think the more i read in the more outrageous at all was thought well if the ancient babylonian rabbis could do this then i guess i can. Do you know. I wanted to talk a little bit. About how your book is structured because on the one hand it's not unique to your book. There are many books that have a structure where you know chapter by chapter sort of different. I guess it's not different narrators in your case but different protagonists. I remember reading As i lay dying in school. Growing up by william faulkner which was like my first time with that and i didn't like that book i found it very disorienting but do i have grown into that style and i bring it up because i actually think you could see it as like. Oh interesting counterintuitive style for a novel or you could say when it comes to biblical text. I'll speak for myself. This is how i read it. Basically like when i'm reading a biblical text my process in my head is like For smidge i am in the text. I am like in the book of esther and then flashing to my life and that. I'm back to the book of esther and then maybe i'm to my parents. Lives are my ancestors recently but what was happening in terms of the structure of the book and in what ways might actually have something to teach us about how to approach whether it's biblical texts or any kinds of ancient texts that we work with. Yeah it's so interesting. What you say when you describe the way that you read the text in that you're going between them to your own life and two other to your ancestors etc because i think that's i think that's sort of how he read any text in a way. I mean we're always projecting ourselves into it in onto it and Whether consciously or or sort of subconsciously. And so i think in a way the weaving as you're talking about that i do in this book between these different narrators and really without between these very different times. 'cause there's the there's contemporary brooklyn there is nineteen seventies washington. Dc in ancient persia is meant to really have the effect that you're talking about that you have read which is which is to bring us closer together and to reckon with not only how much has changed but actually how much continues to be the same. In how how shaped we are by the stories that have come before us in shaped we continue to be and that we become i think then also more aware of the power of the stories. We are telling now you know to ourselves to our children to the people around us and the effect that that will have on their lives and their future. The potential for that kind of writing but also for reading is to make those connections and maybe be a little more conscious of our own powers as we as we tell our stories.
Ubisoft says they are moving away from a reliance on AAA video games
"Let's talk about ubisoft recent financial results where they revealed they're going to be moving away more alliance on aaa releases and instead look more closely at free to play games and it's back catalogue to make money. I'm gonna read over some quotes here. plans for fiscal twenty. Twenty two. which will go from this april two april or through march twenty twenty two includes three trivia a game releases so i guess we can speculate a little bit on what we think those might be But in the future you have doesn't want aaa games to the focus of its business model quote. We said for a number of years. That are normal template is to come with either three or four aaa games. So we'll stick to that plan for fiscal twenty twenty two twenty twenty two but we see that. We are progressively continuously moving from a model. That used to be only focused on aaa releases to a model or you have a combination of strong releases from aaa and strong back catalogue dynamics but also complementing our program of new releases with three to play and other premium experiences you wanted to specify the company had a number of aaa titles in the pipeline otherwise like six ramos quarantine skull and bones. They actually mentioned skull and bones as republic. The prince of persia says the time remake and roller champions. No mention of yongan evil to on the call. There was not a single mention of their battle. Royale higher scape. Finally you besides financial indicate. The games like mario puts reds far. Cry five the crew to anno eighteen hundred older. Just dance games and assess discreet. Odyssey are still doing meaningful numbers. How rock band still makes a lot of money.

"The kingdom of Persia. Withstood me. 21 days. And Michael One of the chief princes came to help me and I remain there with the Kings of Persia, but I have come Tell you what will happen to your people in the days to come. Has he was saying this. I bowed down with my face to the ground, and I said How can I Your servant. Speak with you, My lord. My strength is gone. I can barely breathe. And he touched me. He gave me strength. He said To me on man greatly loved. Do not be afraid. Peace be with you Be strong, Be strong, And as he was speaking, I was strengthened. And I said speak, my Lord, because you've given me strength. And then in Daniel chapter 11. Daniel Records. That this man this divine man? Gave to him concerning his people. He said that many foreign kings would come and rule over His people. And there would be one king. Who would rule with Great Dominion, and he would do whatever he pleases. But as soon as he arrives, is his kingdom will be broken. His kingdom will be plucked up. And he says that other kings will come And they will wage wars and they will raise armies and their armies will sweep across the land like an irresistible flood, and the hearts of these kings will be filled with pride. But none of them will endure. They will all likewise. Be broken. And then he said to Daniel The violent among your people. Will rebel And they will fail. And then more kings will come. Our king will will come and rise to power. But he will stumble and fall and another king will rise up in his place, and in a matter of days he will be broken. And then another king will come with a great and mighty army. But he will not stand. His army will be swept away yet the people who know their God People who know their God will stand firm. They will take action. And the wise among the people will make many understand and Some of the wives will stumble. So that they may be refined. Purified. And made white until the time of the end. And then in those days your people will be delivered. Everyone whose name is found written in the book. And many, many who sleep in the dust of the Earth will awake. Some to everlasting life. And others to shame. And everlasting horror. The wise will shine. It will shine like the brightness of the heavens of bother, and those who turned many to righteousness will shine like the stars. Forever and ever. As for you, Daniel. You go your way. You go your way to the end. And you will rest and you will rise to your assigned place. At the end of the days. From Daniel Chapters 10 through 12. When someone asks you What do you want to hear? First? The good news or the bad news. What do you say? Some people want to hear the bad news first, so that they can get it out there and figure out what they have to deal with. Other people want to hear the good news first, so that they can keep that in mind as they try to process the bad news. Some people don't want to even hear the bad news like the proverbial ostrich with its head in the sand. Other people don't want to hear the good news like chicken little who is so certain that the sky is falling that nobody can tell him. Otherwise, the stock deal paradox and, more importantly, the profits paradox. Would have us see both. Confront the brutal facts of your present reality. Never lose faith in the end of the story. Long before there was a Stockdale paradox. There were the Holy prophets and the Apostle's They lived and they told a story..
This Green Bay Quarterback Idolized Alex Trebek
"Last weekend the world lost an icon we have learned that longtime jeopardy host. Alex trebek's has died after. Waging a brave very public battle with stage. Four pancreatic cancer so remembering the man with all the answers. Now extra bet you showed up in our households more consistently than any relative. Alex trebek's was not a game show host. He was like a friend today. The athletics match schneiderman on the connection between jeopardy host. Alex trebek's and packers quarterback aaron rodgers as a kid you grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person is really special for rodgers star combination having a connection to somebody s the meaningful stall. But when you meet that person they have the president and the charisma that you have hoping they and definitely athletic. I'm davidson and i'm under sculptor. It's friday november thirteenth. And this is the lead so matt you recently talked to aaron rodgers about role that jeopardy has played in his life. What was his experience with the show. Growing up yeah. He told me about how when he was a little kid. He'd be staying at his grandparents house finished dinner early. And you retire to living room for jeopardy and grandpa's in his grandma's hurt sure i'm on the ground and that's just kind of a we. Did he was so devoted to this show from a young age and then he kinda grew to appreciate it more and he's a really intellectual savant. I guess you could say big trivia buff so that kind of drew him to it and alex trebek's became one of the iconic voices of his childhood a connection with certain people for my show and i've been fortunate enough to meet a few of them but it's kinda voices on my gv. I'm talking about john. Men summerall about how frank. And then on. Monday nights before bob barker on prices riot as he got into the league he said even if there would be obligations tend to in green bay on weeknights. He would record it. I mean literally friends of mine and visit dated. Six o'clock at my house is by had any friends over. If i was dating someone. If i had any family in town they knew that six. Pm in green bay was jeopardy time. So they'd better not make any other obligations so he was a real deal jeopardy diehard what stood out to him about alex trebek's as a game show host. He said really his cadence and his sense of humor and his ability to not make fun of but have a great back and forth with. The contestants are really enjoyed the often awkward coming into the first commercial. It'd be the contestants is reaction to so many of them is what made this show so great. Now just the thank you often have some nerds out. There were really nervous about what they do. It's called mary. Core hip hop it murdered. Core hip hop. It's people who identify as nerdy rapping about the things. They love video games science fiction having a hard time meeting romantic partners. It's really catchy. And fun losers. In other words. I know teasing you. And roger said that nature of trebek's the one that was playful with the contestants and related to them a little bit rather than just being a robot reading off of a sheet because it was his job for thirty minutes every night was what drew him to him so much before he became a professional. Football player did aaron rodgers do trivia. Was he the guy at the bar at trivia night. I'm sure he was. You know he's been on a couple of game shows. You probably know it then on multiple shows jeopardy hundred dollar ear man. Eight small felt things on a billiard table lopez jennifer lawrence i. I'm sure when he went to cal berkeley and he was the big man on campus there as the quarterback he was still going to trivia night at bars. I mean he challenges himself intellectually in a lot of different ways. I did a story with him last year seeing if he could name all thirty seven players. He's turned touchdowns to in his career. Rodgers could remember the exact route. Some no name tight end ran in two thousand and eleven. Because that was the tight ends only touchdown pass from rodgers so it was really impressive. Seeing how much he's able to remember and his abilities as a quarterback. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say his ability to process information and remember kind of the tendencies of certain defensive. Players definitely transfers over to a game show. Aaron got the chance to meet. Alex trebek's five years ago when he was a contestant on celebrity jeopardy. What was it like for him to meet the game show host. He grew up watching yet. It was big for him. Because you think aaron rodgers you know. You wouldn't be florida starstruck by anyone. This was in two thousand fifteen when he met. Alex trebek's super bowl. He'd already one to mvp's but aaron said he was the one of the few people that left me starstruck. And i think to be star star can have stayed combination of having a connection to somebody. That's that's deep. Meaning for a stall jack but when you meet that person they have the presence in the charisma then you kind of hope they would and you definitely did i so excited trying to keep it together as a kid. He grew up watching him in idolizing him and spending every weeknight with him so then to see him in person here that iconic voice in person it was really special for rodgers and he just loved more so than anything. How down to earth travek was how conversational he was. It wasn't something like okay. You're here on my show getting your position and i'll do my job. He was the guy you think he is on tv. All the things that make you feel like you care about the conversation. I'm talking about old school stuff. I'm talking about striking yet. Shaking your hand looking. I contact in the conversation. I felt like present in the moment. So aaron rodgers this trivia. Buff jeopardy fanatic. It's finally on the show. How did he prepare for it. Was he like in a room going over tape. His preparation for this show was unbelievable. He was watching. Not just the ken jennings and brad rudders of the world. But he was watching random contestants just to see how they approached the game. He watched tape of other contestants just to see where they place their hands to buzzing quick enough did they stay in the same category. Did they go. Two hundred four hundred six hundred or did they bounce around to try and throw off the other contestants so he came in with a very set strategy especially to go up against mr wonderful kevin o'leary from shark tank. That was his main competition. And i'm not gonna say he wanted to win it more than he wants to win a regular week ten. Nfl game against the jaguars like they have coming up this weekend but he took this very seriously show was a dream. But you don't think we're there any highlights or any surprises any categories where aaron rodgers did surprisingly well. Yeah leader of the pack. He obviously did very well in that in three thirty four bc. This great guy. Lead thirty five thousand greeks into persia. Aaron was alexander the great correct twelve hundred. The one question he did get wrong. Which was the final jeopardy question was it showed a black and white picture of two men riding old school motorcycles and the writing question i believe was what company made these. Aaron is looking pretty happy now. Did he come up with the correct response when he wrote down who are earned standing young and the answer was hardly and davidson and he got it wrong and then there's that brief moment where alex trebek's says well let's see how much wagered and rogers had a wry smile on his face and kind of smart looking at alex. Trebek's like i already know i won. This caused him too much. No he is the winner today. Charity the tape and he said he still has the little trophy. They gave him after winning celebrity jeopardy and that big fifty thousand dollar check the money that went to charity after he won. He still has those in his house. Check now with me. Checked and little choking and i asked him. Where does that day on. Celebrity jeopardy rank among non football ventures. Because he's been on game shows he's been courtside huge sporting events. He's the face of state farm billion dollar insurance agencies. He's done a lot of fun. Commercials there he said. The liberty jeopardy is right up there. The opportunity to compete against astronaut turned senator and super successful businessman. Plus really special. You know getting those nerves friend. He walks out turn just for.
Travel to Turkmenistan
"I'd like to welcome back to the show Justin Barnes from Justin and crystal dot com, and just has come to talk to us about Turkmenistan Justin. Welcome back to the show. Thank you. Thanks for having me back and I say welcome back to the show Justin was on episode six, twenty, nine about the Big island of Hawaii. This is a very different destination. We're talking about today. What's your connection with Turkmenistan? We traveled there on a trip to or the stands. There's the five stands Turkmenistan Kazakhstan respect. Extended Kurdistan, and we went to four of them on a trip and Turkmenistan is certainly the most interesting of the bunch in terms of how foreign it was. The misers foreign every since the word will and I was very interested in doing the show because been one time since we've talked about Turkmenistan and because. Before covert hit, we had a amateur traveler trip plan to the stands not to all five to two. I think of them as I recall in two thousand and twenty one which has bumped to two thousand and twenty two, but still planning on taking a group to that region of the world. So should someone go to Turkmenistan all for one thing it has something that I am fairly certain no other country. In the world has which Zeke giant flaming pit in the middle of the desert that looks for one tencent purposes like a volcanic crater but is actually just burning natural gas and you can walk right up to the edge of it. It's about the ultimate across at about one hundred feet deep and that's something you're not gonna see any world's Laurel I think Azerbaijan has some similar geologic features of natural burning. Areas that have been burning for hundreds of years. Well, in addition to that, there's some very interesting Silk Road historical sites, and also some history even older than that going back to partying times in an earlier excellent and the Parthenon's being a contemporaries with an and rivals with the Romans. The recreation of the Persian state after the fall of Persia to Alexander the Great. Excellent will what should one do would enter and where are you going to take us on an itinerary here? So I would recommend or remain sites that can kind of seen in any. Any order. One is the capital Ashgabad, which is in the south central part of the country. nother one is the gas crater, which is more or less than the very center of the country. Kunia organic, which is the north central or the country. And finally merged, which is in the eastern part of the country in the horror which would go to those guys somewhat dictated in where you're coming from and where you're going to afterwards I think for the most are people who be traveling Turkmenistan. If you'RE GONNA, go that way you're not going to be going only to Turkmenistan, and so it's going to be part of a larger trip either balls, other stands and or. Now, we're you doing trip independently or as part of a tour or how did you arrange us? This was part of a tour. I. Think as a practical matter, it is very unlikely that somebody is going to get a visa to stand on their own is hard to get into Turkmenistan insulin less. You're going with a company that does a lot of tour packages there where they take care of getting visa process they donald is across all the ts I think for all intents and purposes it's it's almost impossible to get in unless you with without friends or family member living country. Will and one thing we should bring up just because people are gonNA look at the map and some people are going to say, no right away. Because of its neighbors. Because we just to the south of Turkmenistan Afghanistan in Iran Iran being very stable country right meal although not always one that my country the US is friendly with Afghanistan not necessarily. Being as stable but Turkenistan you've found to be fairly safe an interesting country to travel to. Yes and we went there from Iran and they were quite different but I felt safe in both places for different reasons. Under of the spectrum well in, we'll talk about more about Iran some other day. There's a couple, very fascinating episodes that we've done on. Iran made me want to get there ever since we've talked about it. So took minutes said you start at us in the capital, Yes yes. So Ashgabad new would either fly into or conceivably if you were on a road trip from either northern Iran or from Pakistan might come in. The car by I think most likely would come into the airport, which is very interesting. Airport probably will not see too many if any other airports that look the same with a multi billion dollar airport that looks like eighty giant Falcon or shave your channel self is a Falcon hundreds of feet. We'll be thousands of feet across.
La Casa Matusita
"In many ways Lokossa to see sita is more legend than a place whispers surrounded in its neighborhood, Lima Peru and none of the stories about it entirely match they weave in and out of each other never forming a complete picture. Various businesses operated on the first floor of the two story building near the intersection Espana and Gossip Lhasa, de la Vega at us. But the top floor apartment rarely manages to keep an occupant. The each window that lines the wall is surrounded by cheery golden paint and Teal Trim. The Place Somehow always feels dark and closed in. Visitors find themselves assaulted by violent, but unseen forces, tortured cries and flying objects. A priest to attempted to exercise the building was heard screaming before he was found dead due to an apparent heart attack. The name itself derives from one of the legends surrounding. Qasim to see to. The Legend tells of Japanese immigrant by the name of much. Sita who killed his wife and her lover after discovering them in Flagrante. When he realized his children would never forgive him. He killed them as well before taking his own life. There are no historical records confirming this quadruple homicide ever occurred but allegedly, there are property records that Saint Immigrant family did occupy the building. At some point it is likely the name stuck due to rampant xenophobic sentiment in Peru during the first half of the twentieth century. Japanese immigrants began coming to Peru at the end of the eighteen hundreds and their numbers grew in decades that followed. By the nineteen forties however anti-japanese rioting and protests broke out in Lima result of long-standing xenophobia and the pressures of World War, two. The idea of an East Asian, immigrant holding a property like Mukasa, Macho Sita would stick in the minds of xenophobic Peruvians. But the legends of dark happenings at Mukasa Mata. Sita date back centuries before Mr Montecito set foot in south. America. The origin story of this haunting is actually about a very different kind of immigrations. Dare. VASA. Knew they were coming for her? She thought that her neighbors might be more just standing here than they've been in Europe but she learned however that hatred looks the same no matter where she went. When she was little dare Vassilios father told her that her blood, the blood of Persians south of it dynasty was the most rare in the. And while dare boat had been blessed with keen wit and a sharp tongue, she was a long way from Persia and the Peruvian locals had no qualms about reminding her. Not only did they find her form of prayer abhorrent? They resented the fact that she lived alone. She didn't need anyone to provide for her when found themselves in trouble she was the one to help them out with herbs and healing hands. She expected their protection and return, but even they bowed to the KISTA doors. She tried not to blame them. Many of her neighbors could still be calm when the INCA had ruled this land and not the Spanish. Some said, they had seen the fires that burned the Great General Chow Gucci Mock. They had heard that threats of Pizarro to burn their now murdered emperor at two Wolpe to. The Spanish said they were the fires of God and like Derek boats talents, her neighbors called it magic. Their fastball correct them magic was a tool for evil not a way to Allah or to their God's.
Prince of Persia Remake Graphics Already Look Much Better in Updated Screenshot
"Of Persia is back. The sands of time is getting remade. Now, this is not just a re master with a resing. It's actual using the term remake and they showed off a new trailer. It's coming to PC playstation four and xbox one on January. Twenty. First Twenty twenty one. What did you think of the trailer Tricia I I should ask you, I guess, play the original game in and so did you like it? I never owned the original game. So I was around while other people were playing Rachel Cam. And I enjoyed watching the bits that I watched, but it doesn't have the same nostalgic residents with me that I feel like it does with other people. I kind of had a similar a similar reaction to think. What I was the majority in chat watching it live, which is you know these graphics look two generations ago in this supposed to come to next gen consoles what Gibbs but I'm curious to ask you guys if either of you did play the original to a great extent did the graphics feel reminiscent of the original and maybe that's why that artistic choice was made. Certainly. I mean it looks as so many of these remakes do except for the ones that are really go for it but so many of these games. It looks like I remember the game looking you know because. In my head, it looked like that and then you go back and you screen shots like Oh, God? No, it didn't look anything like that. They've done a lot of work on this but in your head you're like Oh. Yeah. That looks like. The time which is a game I absolutely loved at the time and I'm kind of excited a replay it. Christian. How about you are you disappointed by the look of this remake or did you did you play the game with? What's your feelings played? It loved it. All of them I play them on. Game. Cube Big Fan of that of that series even the dark middle chapter with bangs in his is I could I got behind it. You know we were both listening the Thursday at the same time you're. Screaming our way through time travel. I am not excited about this remake I I want a new Prince of Persia for whatever reason replaying this game doesn't seem exciting to me I. think some games like Halo where the combat is a little bit more of a sandbox are a little more enticing. To combat to have been I don't know evolved. More needs to be a mortal colon writing for me to get. Yeah I don't know. That's the thing. If maybe they gave it like that man combat combat in the originals was good but I think third person action combat is kind of moved past that. Now I'm not I'm not super excited about I want a one a new game in the franchise in this race gets us that is this would breathe this. This game is remake doing well, does that get us the new game? The Franchise? Is this a stopgap to the game in the franchise? That's two years out. It may very well be but I I hope I'm wrong than if that's the case but I don't think this game will do particularly well, because while I, do think it looks kind of like how I remember the original looking. You know this is going to be coming out a few months after the new consoles are out and we're seeing spider man miles morales, and we're seeing maybe ray tracing on ratchet and clank in we're seeing other. UBISOFT. Know involve Hala and some of these other games that they're doing and I don't think people are going to be super excited about this remake coming out in January, which is a little bit of a weird time. Ano- Capcom has had some success with that date before to. Remix with remakes but those were bigger like after seeing that style of remake if it's not Tony Hawk purse gator one to a resident evil two I have a hard time getting out of bed for it. You know like We've been spoiled by incredible incredible remakes lately, and from what I saw of this Prince of Persia Sands of time remake doesn't seem to be at that caliber in my opinion.
All the biggest announcements from Ubisoft's Forward event
"Forward was yesterday a bunch of stuff got announced. We want to give you a recap of it. immortals. Phoenix rising was revealed of course, gods and monsters re renamed redone. It's covering the December third I. It's coming to deep breath playstation for playstation five, xbox one series series s switch PC. An Stadia on December third stadium however is getting demo before launched that'll be exclusive. Stadia it'll be a unique island. It's coming sometime later this year before December third busing you liked what you play this game yeah. No I enjoyed it like I've said this before, but it's basically you be Saas version breath wild and I think that very much shows each and every way where you have so many of the mechanics and ideas from breath while the climbing and like the the they have a shrine Like replacement in in Gaza and immortals Phoenix rising, they have the open world that is filled with puzzles and all this stuff play lot somewhere at ease. But then also if you'll. If. You'll structured like a Yousof game and I was actually talking to my roommate Michael about this last night. But he was very much like seems like breath breathalyzer came out and it it copied a lot of what you saw is doing and we saw Admiral Hey we can be. Doing I feel like that's a pretty apt way to put it almost when you look at the towers and stuff breath wild. Stuff manifest this. Game though has me excited. For I'm. Coming to next Gen, I think is exciting. I N necessarily expected not to, but this plus came out in. February and so I think I had the question of all right what does this release look like and so that's an exciting thing I. wonder if it looks better, I wonder how I wonder what the differences between the two skews It also coming to switch is really exciting because I was thinking they revealed that surprise me you know especially with the breadth of wild similarities that coming to switch I think is going to be interesting for that audience to see how people will take to it whether people flocked to order people are put off to put off by it. I. My my thing in this isn't me knocking it right breath. The wild part of that game I thought was the journey across the island and making it feel like you're making big steps watching What we saw last night from Phoenix rising. It seemed like traversing the island in getting around seemed quicker. Is that an apt description or is that just what made to look like? I think that's apt but I also wonder how late in the game that is because when I jumped in halfway through I, wonder if we're at the beginning of the game, does heal a lot slower because that is my thing with breath to you a breath breath the wild. One. Of The wild one. Breath wild felt like one of the biggest open world games I played even though it probably like in scale of the map, it probably isn't as like it probably isn't that big you know in reality but the way in which they approach like that journey aspect of it makes it feel like it's huge near exploring all these different things in that like you know you really feel like you're going. Through journey because you're kind of exploring that world slowly and meticulously, and you know, they give you the the paraglider thing early in the game breath wild Ryan so like they give you some of those those those tools to explorer in like go through the island quicker. But even even with that Econo, still feel like you're tracking few and You know really getting everything out of the map. Immoral Phoenix rising when I was playing did feel a bit like quicker and did feel be onto the next thing right? You feel like you are going to the next class breath while didn't really have A. The has system, but it's not as traditional and strict as. A. Lot of other similar open World Games try immoral Phoenix rising does seem to have a quest system that is a bit stricter in terms of, hey, go do this thing called the next question? Do this thing called? The next. Which? I think a lot of people who may not have liked breath wild for that are going to like a moral phoenix rising for its structure. But I think that also means that you might be exploring this game at a particular pace is probably going to be a bit quicker. I don't think it is going to be the man. What is this? What we're here I'M GONNA I'M GONNA check this out like this who unique thing that you've never seen before that that that blows your mind I don't know how those moments you're gonna get but you are going to have like open world puzzles and things that are discoverable just maybe not on the level of breath. Wow. Okay I had zero hype for this game and then washing shows like Oh shit I'd like to play that and I think December's time for to after like the run to black Friday new consoles or out every starting to chill and settle for the holidays.

I don't know exactly what it is about this game I don't know if there's one thing about this game rows like this me this is what I need but like the more and more they show during that trailer because it was it was a long trailer, the more and Morales like. No. Yeah. This seems like it has a fun like it seems like a fun combination of quite a few ubisoft games. Right has a lot of steep in. It seems like it has some trials in it even seems like it has some far cry in it. When you look at the world and you look at the some of the colors you see an almost has like some rage in it all. You know when you look at when you look at the colors i. I want to know more about what structure of the game is like. Is it battery Al is a like fog is, is it just you're doing a bunch of different activities that that scale based on how many players? There are ten players to thirty whatever I'm more curious about that. But from the stuff they show they show a game that was very similar to graffiti from Tony Hawk. Where graffiti is the game where like it's a multiplayer game where if you do a trick on a ramp or like on a grind or whatever yellow then color that the ramp or or the grind your color, and you are essentially doing as matrix all over the map as you can in order to take over the map versus your opponent almost kind of platoon ish in a way. They showed a game battle is very much that we've made me go. Oh, snap. All right. This seems like it has a lot in in terms of the different, the different ways in which you can have fun. So all about it looks cool. It looks like it's going to grow over time I'm surprised it's coming out so soon.

"I think that is more of propaganda after the fact. But don't quote me on that because I'm out of my depth the moment. Of course. This is what happens when you get to podcasters talking about something that's just outside of the range of what they've actually covered in the podcast so far. Seat That certainly covers all of the thematic and. Political topics I wanted to get your input on and. Get a Greek perspective. So to speak for mine listeners Is there anything you'd like to add? To our conversation about Greece in Persia. No I now I I'm just. Thankful I'm appreciative of you invited me on it I'm glad you started the podcast because I only covered the Greeks or I'm sorry I only covered the Persians maybe about. Four episodes. So, I mean obviously excluding the Persian wars but I mean like the Early History Persia. So it's been, it's been interesting to listen to like full-on detailed. Of like. Persian provinces in Persian. Cultural stuff as opposed to just covered things that you typically would find in. Herodotus. And or Stenius once he becomes. More relevant I suppose. So Yeah Yeah I am much more at I. Think I've talked. Quite a bit. Yeah Well thank you for the compliment to because. Obviously podcast was one of the great influences on. Figuring out how to get mine started and I certainly, WanNa. Thank you whether I include this in the final product or not. Being the great source of promoting the show especially early on because I really do attribute a large portion of my audience to you. You're welcome Yeah. I I would imagine of people are interested in ancient. Greece history they tend to be entrant ancient history as well as they have to kind of fit whether you like it or not tend to be in the mindsets stuck together. Thanks to Herodotus and the sources. Unfortunately there's no native. Persian historical ancient it came in and source that. All we have is the Greeks so. Persia Persians stuck with the Greeks. For better. Every now, and there's a hint of like some kind of independent tradition that POPs up in one of the Roman sources where someone like Diodoros, Nicholas, Vasquez will mention something that nobody else has ever talked about and we think maybe there was some kind of oral tradition or Britain tradition that we've lost but ultimately were stuck with the Greeks for better or worse and it's important to know what their opinions of the Persians were. So thank you for coming on it talking to us about that.

Well I think especially given Cyrus the younger failure to overthrow his brother. It makes what happens next in that story. Have interesting to me because this idea of building up Sparta as a close ally on the Western frontier. I guess collapses almost. Within the generation because our desert sees the second. One of his primary involvements with the Greeks is fighting with Sparta and the spartans invade Persia Anatolia. So really I we've got it looks like Greek wars. Basically. Right. Up to that point. I, think it's three, eighty, six that. The last fighting between Persians Sparta finally ends. Eighty, six or three, eighty, seven I can't remember the king's piece I forget the year I think I haven't got that far in the podcast or my research though. Neither have I at the moment we're both pushing far ahead but what I think is interesting is. If. You're reading a history of the Persian empire, you get through that. You get Egypt back under control and then the next three kings really are dealing with mastodon You you get to the end of this. Persian influenced spartan versus Athenian battled for hegemony in Greece. And in the story of the Persian empire, it cascades immediately into. The build up to Alexander. So it kind of seems like the Greek words don't end. Well, you have this like after the ten thousand, the ambassador that we talked about xenophon tried to put pirate Cyrus the younger on his throne. You you start seeing this rhetoric afterwards with like I socrates and some others like. Oh look how easy they just went into the part of the Persian empire and the Greek mercenaries were able to defeat their portion of on the right wing there on the right wing, they were able to defeat. Their portion of the of artisans army was the rest, the Asian contingents, easy attic contingents, and Cyrus that that failed and you start seeing this rhetoric that it's like..

"Everyone I'm Trevor Kelly, was him to a special episode of the history of Persia podcast and the history of ancient. Greece. As history of Persia rapidly approaches sees invasion of the Greek mainland and arguably a sort of beginning for one hundred and fifty years of on and off conflict. In the Aegean, I wanted to get an expert opinion on the so-called Yona. So, please enjoy this detailed conversation between myself and the excellent. Ryan stick. So really what I want this to be is a conversation about Greece, sort of as it relates to Persia, but also what it is on its own because it's going to be such massive cog in the machine of the Persian Empire for most of my series. But I feel like you're probably much better equipped to explain what it really means to be Greek than I am given that you are the most of the history of ancient Greece But I think I could you introduce yourself everyone? I know a lot of my listeners overlap with your listeners but I'm sure there are some people who haven't heard quite yet. Yeah. My Name's Ryan. I am the creator host of the history of Ancient Greece podcast. On twitter at Greek history pod I know that's confusing for some. Grease history. pod was already taken so. it's not anymore. So I was thinking about switching back, but that's a digression anyway. But Yeah I I cover the history of ancient Greece from. Technically from the Paleolithic Neolithic period to the plan is to act him but I mean I only spent. One twenty minute episode of the stone. Age. So. Technically covered it but and we did a few episodes in the bronze. Age. currently right now we are in the classical period the pope nation war and the Persians are starting to get involved in the war so. There's some overlapping there I I I do I. Do kind of what Trevor does. He seems to have similar methodology I do chronological, but also fi medical when it's appropriate. So since it's the classical period and we have a lot more sources, I've been I did like a whole cultural tour of classical period. So I've been in the classical period for like two years. Now specifically have been in the fifth century for like two years. Now, I will be in the classical period for a while. If you consider the classical period to Alexandra in the conquest of the came at empire which we do so I'll be in the classical period for a couple more years. Oh Great. The yeah. The fifth century is kind of a monster topic to cover in Greek history I. Think. We have few cities in Herodotus, the to the earliest Greek historians and the two main ones. xenophon comes later he still technically fit century but. Of It so like you for the first time, you have these like dedicated histories. To a century though obviously herodotus has you know goes back a little bit further beyond that. Earlier than that to cover the rise of the Persians as I'm sure you're. You're well aware of Herodotus, his listeners. To quote myself as Herodotus says. Insert most of the podcast. The first thing I'd really like you to maybe explain to me and my listeners because obviously I got my ba in classics and what I'm in Grad School for but. I you've engaged with it much more in depth than I have I.

Rockstar did not respond for requests for comment but similar reports have surfaced. One player tells polygon that they recently entered a game with only two people in it, which might sound bad except the small player counts seem to be helping read an online. The Mo light has had a rough year with issue so far ranging that at one point, it was nearly impossible to do anything in the game. The Western has also had trouble keeping itself populated with animals and NPC's, and every time rockstar tries to fix it something else breaks seems to break. But right now with tiny player lobbies, things actually seemed to work fan say quote low player session has made it easier to get legendary animals. One Fan told Polygon. If the session is crowded, people will fight to get legendary animals, which is not efficient. While rockstar has not announced such a major change to the game fans feel that it must be intentional. The update that caused this been life over a week. Now, despite reports nothing has changed and for some that's just as well prior to the update one of the most requested features by the community where private lobby lobbies to the degree that even.

Prince of Persia VR Escape Room Announced by Ubisoft
"There is going to be a prince of Persia VR. Escape Rem I don't honestly fully understand how this works, but I got excited today. When I saw people sharing screen shots from a new game called Prince of Persia, the dagger of time, but was surprised that it was being shared so casually. You'd think new Prince of Persia with inspire more excitement, but then I looked into it a bit more and realized the screen shots were being shared for Prince of Persia VR escape Rome experience, which is very strange and interesting, but certainly less exciting than a new prince of Persia. Persia game proper I'm going to read the whole description for this thing from its website. It's a long, but I think it answers most of the questions I had about it Prince of Persia. The dagger of time is a virtual reality escape game set in the world of Prince of Persia which enables you to experience time control. You will be able to experience something impossible in real life to slow stop or even rewind time. Quick aside here I think we've done a pretty good job slowing down time to a stop over the course of the last few months so. You can't experience in real life. Continuing the dagger of time takes place in the setting of the Prince of Persia Trilogy Sands of Time Warrior. Within the two thrones, players are summoned to the fortress of time by Kyle, Lena to stop an evil magic. Kylian restores and gives the dagger of time to the players, so they can reach the hourglass shaped and use it to stop the Maj I, and then another quick aside. There's this'll asterisk there that I thought was funny. Because down at the bottom of the page, it says you do not need to have played any of the previous Prince of Persia Games in order to enjoy the dagger of time. I just thought it was funny that they felt like they had to specify that continuing again. The dagger of time is an experienced built around cooperation between players of all ages to achieve shared goal. Collaboration is essential. You cannot succeed without your teammates. Being able to listen and communicate effectively is absolutely key to success in the game to three or four players team up to find a way out of a re-imagined. re-imagined fortress of time to succeed, they need to work together and solve puzzles. The puzzles will require players to interact with objects in their vicinity climb and use certain powers such as the time control. I've got a link to the website and the show notes, and though it doesn't have a release, date does show all kinds of places all over the world where you will apparently be able to play it. During this age of pandemic I. Don't know when I would actually get a chance to check this thing out, but if it's near me. And if it's safe, I will seek it out I. Want to try it I do wish it was just a new Prince of Persia game, or at the very least a VR Prince of Persia game that I play on Oculus at home, but you know this is. Nothing I gas.
How Does Your Garden Grow, with Nooks and Crannies
"Wants neglected plot on their recently inherited estate. The Duchess of Northumberland undertook to make special garden inspired by a trip to the MEDICI estates in Italy. The Duchess wanted to make a garden that was both beautiful and educational. The carefully tended plot features things like a trope. Abell Donna to tour common moral monkshood white. Hello Bore Blue Ensign, flowers and narcissus. It's called the annick poison garden. Because like the sign at the front gate, says do not touch any of these plants. These plants can kill you. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. We hardly need to say that mankind has been growing food for a longtime. The earliest domesticated plants and horticulture that we have evidence of thus far date to nine thousand B C e in the teen corridor the that runs from the Dead Sea to the Damascus basin. The people there planted grains legumes using sticks to dig in the dirt. The first written reference to gardening dates back soumare in lower Mesopotamia. King Gilgamesh mentioned that his city or ACC was one third gardens. Though. He probably meant orchards as much as anything else. From Egypt. We have paintings and models gardeners at work, and you can still see the remains of the Temple Gardens at Karnak. Or you can head over to Iran to see the layout and information channels of garden that was created twenty five hundred years ago. For the oldest garden we can find in Europe had over to Greece. Were Gardens both practical and ornamental were being put in by seven thousand vce two thousand years before the Egyptians. The creation of a new science botany, the study of plants meant that gardens became a place of learning even in the ancient world gardens could be an aesthetic choice as well as a practical one. Evidence suggests that the idea originated in Persia with Darius the great and his Paradise Garden beginning a tradition of walled in garden spaces. Lavish Villa Gardens in the Roman Empire Spread East China and Japan where Aristocratic Gardens featured miniaturized and simulated landscapes, like rock, gardens and waterfalls. Natural symbolized power and religious thought. Zen Gardens appeared and emphasized the concept of using the garden for reflection to increase. Want Wisdom. The most famous garden in the ancient world is undoubtedly the hanging gardens of Babylon. According to Legend in the sixth century BC. King Nebuchadnezzar a name that is never not fun to say. Bill to the gardens for his wife, a modest to ensure that she didn't become homesick for her birthplace of Medina near the Caspian Sea. But we don't get details of the garden from Nebuchadnezzar himself. Which is odd considering that he recorded his many other accomplishments in cuneiform, but there's no mention of the gardens. Several, ancient Roman and Greek writers wrote about the garden though. Some scholars argue that the gardens were actually built by an Assyrian Queen or the King of Niniveh. We don't know for sure because despite the gardens being one of the seven wonders of the world. We can't find it to study it. It's believed to have been destroyed by an earthquake in the first century C E. So why were they called? The hanging gardens were the garden beds suspended. was everything planted in hanging baskets? Bonus fact, the largest hanging basket planter in the world is on the side of the hotel. Indigo in the Paddington Section of London. It measures ten by twenty feet or three by six meters and weighs upwards of half a tonne. Now the hanging gardens didn't really hang so much as they over Hong or draped and their defense, the draping garden doesn't sound nearly as appealing. Accepting the premise that some royal or another wanted to build a royalty grand garden in the desert, it was going to take careful planning and serious engineering to pull that off. The structure was a cigarette or a stepped pyramid with walls between twenty and seventy five feet high, depending on which ancient account you're reading. So picture a walled city in the desert.

Oddities news discoveries like this tweeted a link to the video writing so there has been a video from a cancelled prince of Persia gave up on Youtube for eight years and nobody noticed till today the publish date for the video says America First Two thousand twelve and all the comments are from today. It could have just quietly been floating around Youtube for the past eight years with no one finding it but it's also possible at may have just been unlisted until today. I'm not really sure. The actual footage doesn't quite look like Gameplay it is pre rendered footage mocked up to look like gameplay but it looks interesting. There's a lot of running on walls and rewinding time and it all takes place in a city that is collapsing on the back of some kind of giant tentacle creature. It looks like an early slice of a game in the protagonists is kind of rough and monthly in a way that the princes have never really looked but the game looks fun. I also adore the Prince of Persia Games so just seeing a third person action game called Prince of Persia that has a character. Running on walls is admittedly. That's all I need to get excited. My initial reaction to the footage was that it could be fan made despite looking very good. But then Jonathan Cooper who has worked with naughty dog and UBISOFT and by aware on games like last of US charted assassin's creed and mass effect. They shared at Z. Huge XS tweet and wrote. Wow haven't seen this in ages. Amazing work from Animation Director High Win for honor and team. This target game footage.

Ip's because as far as I know original Creator Jordan magner still holds licensed rights so the profit margins are lower. Would love to see a new one. Though I've always wanted to Prince of Persia set in a contemporary Iran. Cooper's tweets are a nice confirmation that the footage is legitimate but his tweets also hamper my hope a little bit for a new Prince of Persia entry. If nothing else I would love a current. Gen Port or Ra master remake or anything really of the Prince of Persia Games. That have released. Maybe throw them all in one package. Even the underplayed we game. That was completely different from its playstation three and xbox three sixty counterparts could be in there. I'm sure that can probably be played without motion controls. I think hey cutting back in here. After having technically finished recording the podcast add this little addendum. Ubisoft got back to me which was very nice of them and unexpected. They had a statement. It doesn't really shut a lot of light on the footage but it's it's something so I appreciate that. They said. Prince of Persia is a beloved franchise. And one that's been important to UBISOFT development over the years however we don't have anything new to share at this time so there you go. The glow mar response. Neither a denial or.

"Leaner it be and welcome to another episode of the Trivia with Buds podcast. I'm your host Ryan Buds. Thanks for checking out my show and thank you guys so much for spreading the word during this quarantine about this little show. We have eight hundred episodes to listen to. So it's great for binging. You can take a couple episodes a couple of topics and you can quiz each other. You could battle against people that you're stuck in a house with and hopefully could have a good time passing the time. There are just so many different topics we've done on the show in the past things like marine biology and shopping malls and soft drinks and cooking terms. I'm just trying to think of stuff we've done there so many different topics literally inundate. You could make probably done it at this point. And even the uber specific things like Ace Ventura when Nature Calls Trivia. I think we've done that so just give it a search any topic. You're looking for go on Google and type in Trivia with buds in that topic and you should come across a link or to of Podcast episodes that. We've done shout out to my podcast hosting service. Lipson which has never faltered in all the years. I've used it. I think I've been using it for over three years. People ask me from time to time. What is my hosting plan? How much do I pay all that? Good stuff so I thought I'd share that with you. I think I pay twenty nine ninety nine a month thirty dollars a month for six hundred megabytes of storage and I've been using Lipson for that since the very beginning and the way I found them was just searching best. Podcast host read a few articles. saw some different podcasts. That I listen to that use Lipson and I said okay. I'll go with that so I started off at a smaller megabyte storage level and I moved up when I started the show daily to a little bit of a higher level so that answer that question for anybody who's thinking about starting their podcast. I do trust and believe in Lipson. Check them out. Lipson DOT COM for all the hosting plans. I think you could do it for as little as five bucks a month or six bucks a month so give it a gander. I think they're going to be a lot of podcasts. That start over this quarantine over this downtime. Because people are just sitting around at home going What should we do? Should we start a podcast? Maybe we should. We got plenty of time to do so. And you know along with binging shows that might be great pairing. This might be the Father Brown. Podcast era people watching the show.

"The desktop is using applauding fall name software isn't it. That's right yeah so game. Software is extensible yes and flat pack support it and snap support a both implemented as plug. INS throats plucking architecture or good cipher yeah and that works well enough however as we develop new it features in the snap stall it's becoming increasingly difficult to pull those patches to older releases of game software aw I know so we want to try and keep the design of the web version of the snap stole and the desktop store in sync with one another and that's also becoming increasingly difficult to do by smell. An Electron is on the horizon. It is not an application. It's written in say and uses G K so it's it's a you know and all of the snap support is provided through snap. Digi lab and that will come as no are you surprised when you see who the lead developers which is rob ansel and his previous hits include light dam and simple scan so if you're familiar media with those projects yeah so Robert Robert's being on the desktop team for for many years this news was broken by Veronica who are over the Keeping Ping.

They're kind of stole my first today. Did you really which one did you go for mumble. Of course you do and still there from the terminal. Yeah well the Yes. That's a ways the option of course and many people do but is surprising how many people use the desktop store you know.
