I'm totally willing to own it. Something tells me he'll be telling this answer on onstage for many years to come, and then he said sometimes, you just got up their hands up and say up my bad and then he later tweeted that he's going to have to put Zelda in there and his little What's it called when you have your thank you page is there's a name for it and I'm brain farting.

The New York Stock Exchange announced that it will temporarily close its physical trading floors and move to an all electronic trading following to positive Kobe nineteen tests this week. All Electric Trading will begin on March. Twenty third plug in Uber. Ceo Derrick. Rose was shot. He said on an investor call that ride volume has dropped by up to sixty to seventy percent in cities. Hit hardest by coke. Nineteen like Seattle goes shy. He stressed that even in the worst case scenario of rides down eighty percent for the year. Uber would still have four billion dollars of unrestricted cash in the bank. And a two billion dollar credit line company is also considering using its network to deliver needed items like medicine and basic goods. Microsoft announced that Microsoft teams had forty four million daily active users as of March Eighteenth at twelve million user increase in the last week alone. Twenty customers have over one hundred thousand employees each using teams. That's up from fourteen last week. And in November two thousand Nineteen Microsoft announced teams had twenty million daily active user. So quite a jump and not surprising the US Federal Communications Commission announced that it temporarily waived quote unquote gift rules for its rural healthcare in Iraq programs until September twentieth. Two Thousand Twenty. These rules ordinarily forbid rural healthcare facilities libraries and schools who are part of the program and receiving subsidies from accepting anything of value from ISP's participating in the program the change could let ISP's donate Wifi hotspots upgraded network equipment and offer free service for Telemedicine and Distance Learning September twentieth wedding anniversary.

'cause you pack them all together in one shipment. No Word on win service for Prime Pantry will resume. Let's talk a little bit more about what Europe Santa Netflix Justin. Well Tom the European Union's internal market and Services Commissioner Atira Britain called on streaming video providers to switch to standard definition content during peak usage and take other measures to ease the strain on Internet infrastructure. Netflix says it will reduce bit rates across all streams in Europe for thirty days and estimates that will estimates that it will reduce NETFLIX TRAFFIC ON EUROPEAN NETWORKS. By around twenty five percent later retin warned that network provider were network providers that wild they can take quote exceptional traffic management measures and quote to ease congestion. They must not discriminate against individual content providers commission also called on users to use Wi fi over cellular whenever possible and choose lower content resolution when possible. Bits saving measures are going into effect. Watch- watching standard Def for our survival exact. Yeah because this is crazy. Broadband distancing pleased distance. You're bits appropriately. Don't pack them into tightly. Bits will be two meters apart as delivered to your Netflix streaming. At the same time it would be hard to argue. No no no. I am not going to standard def. It's just not that big of a crisis and honestly there is a lot of video delivering of that can literally grow or shrink the Internet based on on how you do it it. Networks is taking those steps then. I think everybody can deal with a few more pixels and a and an hats off to the people who are working to keep the Internet running It isn't as easy as it might seem to. It's kind of amazing that it's still working to me. No kidding we'll speaking of video streaming. A lot of folks are experimenting now. More than ever with chrome extension called Netflix Party. The let's a group of friends who all have netflixing cup video watching together so it's like a party you're all you know shelter place and has a chat room so you can chat while you're watching all users and a party. Have the option to pause rewind or fast forward unless the initiator reserves that function to themselves could get a little crazy depending on how many people are doing it. Polygon points out that there are other similar options like mets dream for chrome and Firefox. Six to seven which has paid tier to access some services like Hulu or Disney plus and watched two together which also supports audio streams. If you happen to want to listen to podcasts with your friends as with all browser extensions be careful. All extensions are not created equal. And it's hard to tell who's making some of these programs so be You know vigilance and install your own risk. Yeah I was trying to figure out. Who is behind Netflix party?

Be Wise make This idea of watching things is always one where Mike do. People really want to do this. And this is Talia right. Like if it's ever GonNa work this. Is it actually have a group of friends who were all kind of scattered around? We're on the US but no one lives anywhere near me.

It has increased sanitizing surfaces at facilities and staggered shift times among measures to prevent further spread the US National Institute of Health Says. The virus can stay active on cardboard for up to twenty four hours and two to three days on plastic and steel but those are droplets not necessarily just droplets or the way they think transmission happens in most cases if people who get covert probably get it from droplet which is usually sneezed or coughed. More likely Something in the air. It's not airborne but it's droplets. That happened in the air. And so if it gets on a surface it could possibly transmit the virus. What they're saying is look. We find that the the viruses is still valid or an active for up to twenty four hours on cardboard but they also don't think that is the major way that it is transmitted. So if you if you've got someone who is at high risk you might want to take that into account and keep those cardboard boxes away from them until you're sure they they've been away for more than twenty four hours etc but it's not a high likelihood of getting something from the package that said Amazon needs to be more transparent about what they're doing to keep these facilities safe. I've gotten banks telling me more about how they're wiping down the counters at their at their branches than we know about what Amazon's actually doing in their warehouses some transparency would go a long way to having people understand how this all works and it's another indication if we had more testing you could just say. Look if you're in a position where you're going to be touching things you know the. Us Post Office Amazon. Let's just test everybody. The problem is we don't have enough test so we can't afford to just test. Everybody like that Hopefully there there are at least doing test for fever. Make sure that if anybody has a fever they're not allowed to come to work at these warehouses things like that but you don't. There's not a high risk of getting this from a package. We did want to pass along those facts about the activity of the virus. Just just so you have the facts as well wash your hands. There's there's the one Then now forever. Wash your hands if you've got an Amazon package and you handle it Washer and tossed the packaging as soon as you get. Yeah I mean. The Amazon has so many warehouses at so many different sizes. All over the place. And you've got you say well. Okay let's say you more or less trust Amazon to do the right thing. Okay well they figured out a certain facility needed a thorough a thorough cleaning and they're being really fast across the board. Okay even so I mean I don't know how someone who is driving in Amazon freight truck interacts with anybody at a warehouse. And how many people that might go through before it gets to me. I mean there's there's so much involved in less Amazon says here's exactly what's going on in here all the steps. We're taking from the point that you order something to the point that you you know plug in your new smart because it's been delivered to you. It is really hard. It's it's it's hard to know so yes as you mentioned just in you have to go overboard in in keeping yourself safe because that's all you can really do. Yeah I mean it's annoying. Everyone knows it's annoying. But just it's just wash your hands fifty times. It's fine I got some. I got some hands up. That smells really good. I am enjoying it in my hands. Not The worst thing in the world. I mean I did it before but I do it a lot. Conan O'Brien announced on Wednesday. He will return to full shows on. March thirtieth. He wrote on twitter.

But again you given your information to other people you can just try to get on chat and say three to one press play but it won't perfectly sink Yeah so that that's kind of what these services are providing the ability to do this. I wonder if Netflix will just R- they've they've had a service like this out of their hacker groups before the ramp up something like that that they offer themselves or some of those other products out there comeback. But yeah this is Go check out that polygon article has a wrap up of all the ones that Sarah mentioned and kind of evaluate them. Pick the ones right for you. Monday announced it had trained.

Nature Machine Intelligence describes work done with Cornell University on the Louis Heat ship with the output of seventy two chemical sensors teaching Louis. He that a particular response correspondent to the presence of a particular chemical. So it's not just a sensor that detects a molecule. It's actually trying to mimic the human brain's ability to detect smells so that it can distinguish chemicals even among interfering smells.

Intel announced the General Readiness of POA wiki springs a self contained neuromorphic system running on seven hundred sixty eight Louis. He chips available to researchers in the CLOUD INTEL CISCO WHO IKI springs is similar in neural capacity to the brain of a small mammal. So the first thing I thought here was just safety like industrial safety. Have certain situations where you're dealing with chemicals where it might not be immediately clear to a human brain that they're that things are raising to unsafe levels that that this would be a way to do it. A kind of a digital canarian in a coal mine right. Are there any obligations that you can think of the top of your head? Yeah that's a really good one any kind of safety situation where where you're looking for leaks or spills any kind of security situation There's there's a lot of ego through the TSA here in the United States or any any security at an airport and they'll do those swabs and things because they're checking for chemicals this smell the ambient air and say well. Hey hold on We think we detect the faint odor of something. That shouldn't be in. Somebody's luggage and then you can. You can start checking around to find out where comes from. That's that's sensitive of a situation. Then you have where where you have to you have to look for. The actual molecules themselves yameen carbon monoxide. Alarms you know at least at least in California. You know it's it's you have to do it. It's it's a legality But eating or even in situations like that where there's something that is unsafe at a certain level but maybe you're burning a candle you know and you you just you aren't able to discern between that kind of thing having the technology to be able to be like where we are detecting something For a variety of things. That shouldn't be shouldn't be sniffed or just been around is pretty cool Amazon. Enclosed a small warehouse in Queens New York following a positive cove in nineteen tests by an associate associates at the warehouse were sent home with pay. As Amazon sanitizers the facility Amazon's et. It has increased sanitizing surfaces at facilities and staggered shift times among measures to prevent further spread the US National Institute of Health Says. The virus can stay active on cardboard for up to twenty four hours and two to three days on plastic and steel but those are droplets not necessarily just droplets or the way they think transmission happens in most cases if people who get covert probably get it from droplet which is usually sneezed or coughed. More likely Something in the air. It's not airborne but it's droplets. That happened in the air. And so if it gets on a surface it could possibly transmit the virus. What they're saying is look. We find that the the viruses is still valid or an active for up to twenty four hours on cardboard but they also don't think that is the major way that it is transmitted. So if you if you've got someone who is at high risk you might want to take that into account and keep those cardboard boxes away from them until you're sure they they've been away for more than twenty four hours etc but it's not a high likelihood of getting something from the package that said Amazon needs to be more transparent about what they're doing to keep these facilities safe. I've gotten banks telling me more about how they're wiping down the counters at their at their branches than we know about what Amazon's actually doing in their warehouses some transparency would go a long way to having people understand how this all works and it's another indication if we had more testing you could just say. Look if you're in a position where you're going to be touching things you know the. Us Post Office Amazon. Let's just test everybody. The problem is we don't have enough test so we can't afford to just test. Everybody like that Hopefully there there are at least doing test for fever. Make sure that if anybody has a fever they're not allowed to come to work at these warehouses things like that but you don't. There's not a high risk of getting this from a package. We did want to pass along those facts about the activity of the virus. Just just so you have the facts as well wash your hands. There's there's the one Then now forever. Wash your hands if you've got an Amazon package and you handle it Washer and tossed the packaging as soon as you get. Yeah I mean. The Amazon has so many warehouses at so many different sizes. All over the place. And you've got you say well. Okay let's say you more or less trust Amazon to do the right thing. Okay well they figured out a certain facility needed a thorough a thorough cleaning and they're being really fast across the board. Okay even so I mean I don't know how someone who is driving in Amazon freight truck interacts with anybody at a warehouse. And how many people that might go through before it gets to me. I mean there's there's so much involved in less Amazon says here's exactly what's going on in here all the steps. We're taking from the point that you order something to the point that you you know plug in your new smart because it's been delivered to you. It is really hard. It's it's it's hard to know so yes as you mentioned just in you have to go overboard in in keeping yourself safe because that's all you can really do. Yeah I mean it's annoying. Everyone knows it's annoying. But just it's just wash your hands fifty times. It's fine I got some. I got some hands up. That smells really good. I am enjoying it in my hands. Not The worst thing in the world. I mean I did it before but I do it a lot. Conan O'Brien announced on Wednesday. He will return to full shows on. March thirtieth. He wrote on twitter.

"So I'll remember that they're losing that exemption then Amazon spokesperson confirmed a CNBC Amazon Prime Pantry which launched in two thousand fourteen is temporarily closed in the US. Due to high order volumes tied to of course people preparing to stay at home because of Cova nineteen prime pantries that let's prime members by packaged groceries and household items discount. 'cause you pack them all together in one shipment. No Word on win service for Prime Pantry will resume. Let's talk a little bit more about what Europe Santa Netflix Justin. Well Tom the European Union's internal market and Services Commissioner Atira Britain called on streaming video providers to switch to standard definition content during peak usage and take other measures to ease the strain on Internet infrastructure. Netflix says it will reduce bit rates across all streams in Europe for thirty days and estimates that will estimates that it will reduce NETFLIX TRAFFIC ON EUROPEAN NETWORKS. By around twenty five percent later retin warned that network provider were network providers that wild they can take quote exceptional traffic management measures and quote to ease congestion. They must not discriminate against individual content providers commission also called on users to use Wi fi over cellular whenever possible and choose lower content resolution when possible. Bits saving measures are going into effect. Watch- watching standard Def for our survival exact. Yeah because this is crazy. Broadband distancing pleased distance. You're bits appropriately. Don't pack them into tightly. Bits will be two meters apart as delivered to your Netflix streaming. At the same time it would be hard to argue. No no no. I am not going to standard def. It's just not that big of a crisis and honestly there is a lot of video delivering of that can literally grow or shrink the Internet based on on how you do it it. Networks is taking those steps then. I think everybody can deal with a few more pixels and a and an hats off to the people who are working to keep the Internet running It isn't as easy as it might seem to. It's kind of amazing that it's still working to me. No kidding we'll speaking of video streaming. A lot of folks are experimenting now. More than ever with chrome extension called Netflix Party. The let's group of friends who all have netflixing cup video watching together so it's like a party you're all you know shelter place and has a chat room so you can chat while you're watching all users and a party. Have the option to pause rewind or fast forward unless the initiator reserves that function to themselves could get a little crazy depending on how many people are doing it. Polygon points out that there are other similar options like mets dream for chrome and Firefox. Six to seven which has paid tier to access some services like Hulu or Disney plus and watched two together which also supports audio streams. If you happen to want to listen to podcasts with your friends as with all browser extensions be careful. All extensions are not created equal. And it's hard to tell who's making some of these programs so be You know vigilance and install your own risk. Yeah I was trying to figure out. Who is behind Netflix party? They don't care about US page. There's not much detail about them. They have a three star rating on the chrome extension store so that that raise my hackles a little bit Is it just just be careful? Be Wise make This idea of watching things is always one where Mike do. People really want to do this. And this is Talia right. Like if it's ever GonNa work this. Is it actually have a group of friends who were all kind of scattered around? We're on the US but no one lives anywhere near me. So I'm not going to be in the same room watching Netflix with them at any point. Well we all have not fucks and this kind of got floated as a great idea and we all said. Yes. Let's do. It can't agree on a time as humans where we all want to do together. It requires us. Everyone's on appointment viewing now so it's like why can't do that at nine. Nine your time is midnight for me. Sarah. So it's It's still hurting cats a little bit but I love this idea. I've always wanted something like this to work well. And that's not even because I'm stuck at home just this like a fun thing to do with people who you just aren't going to see that. I say that this is something that I I am taking a fresh. Look at all of these things like. I have never when they announce facetime to have multiple parties. That you get a bunch of people in there initially. I'm like whatever I mean. I barely like it when anybody face times me let alone phase timing with many people and yet there. I was last night with two friends that I normally go out without Wednesdays. We now can't because of shelter at home and we were enjoying each other's company on multiple phase facetime. So I'm all about this. I do think however please please friends you cannot double check these plug INS enough to have a. They can that they are. They are back doors and not all the ones that Sarah mentioned are extensions.

"Everyone we're so glad that you're here with us. My name is Kirk Hamilton. Lyndon I'm joined by my co hosts first of all Mr Jason Schreier. Hello Jason Allo. Hello Hello Hello and Jason. I are also joined by Maddie Meyers. Hello matty hello. It's new. It is low. Are you guys ready for my favorite holiday of the year every single year thanksgiving. Yeah boxing. This thanksgiving yeah. It's it's my favorite just gluttony the football on TV the cold fall air. Beautiful Fall of it. I just love Thanksgiving Yeah Yeah it's This is a fun one. So we're recording this. A little bit earlier doing Thanksgiving mailbag mostly going to answer some listener questions and read some listener emails else for this week's episode so if any major news happened this leaf we should probably talk of living in the state of blissful ignorance and But I just want to tell a real quick real quick baby story I So this morning I had to take our kids to the pediatrician. For her. Two month checkup she gets checkups. That there's a one checkup two months. Four months it's an exponential logarithmic. An adult and you just never go to in the limit approaches zero algorithm. So yes so. I took her to the checkup. And this is a big Gwan because she has to get shots and so we were like like like Loathing we were dreading this experience of having to get our tiny. Give our tiny four to two two month old shots And our baby rarely cries which we are lucky. She cries a fair amount when she's hungry but that's pretty much. The only reason shall ever ever cry butts turns out when you give a baby a shot. They cried so here's what you do. What do you have to do? Is You actually the whole of the kid and so the doctor was like here. You take are and so I- held her and then to look away while the doctor injected three different shots so the first one went into one of arms and she says she did the injection and the baby be like didn't seem to mind that much give a little bit of a cry but like wasn't so bad And I was like Oh okay like maybe. This'll be easy. That was easy right. The doctor goes just wait and then she turns to the second arm and injects the needle in the second arm and I just hear the most is horrifying sound like wail starts coming out of my kid. WHO's in my arm? Her face turns bright red. And she's going eh vying like gut wrenching sound And then the doctors to do a third in her leg which led to an equal amount of crying and then afterwards it's babies are so funny because they really do sometimes have just like adult expressions on their faces and so my kid often when she's hungry and not being paid attention to you or when when she's just gotten a shot we'll just have this look of anger on her face. She'll she'll just like have like furrowed eyebrows and like pouty face and it will so cloud over. Yeah it's so funny like yeah enemy enemy anger face Right so she had that and then she quickly got over it. I guess babies don't really remember things like that but man tough experience having the hold your kid while while she gets shy had to. I had to get a flu shot last week and it was pretty similar could someone I reacted acted similarly the flu shots and a joke. That shit may my arm sore for like a week after my arm was orbits orbits a better than having the flu. I always that is for sure Okay let's get to it actually before we take some questions Why don't we talk a little bit more? We're about star wars because Kirk you and I both finished jet I follow murder and Mattie you have played it so I want to kind of put the cap up on our discussion last week and see if you have any more thoughts for so ask you Kirk if you have any other Thoughts or final thoughts about the game. Now that you've actually seen the ending and finish it all yeah. I think it's really good. I thought that the ending of the game like the back. Third of the story was much stronger than I was expecting. It ends really well. Obviously I won't say anything particular Mattie but I think we had talked about this some last week that it's a little bit of his star it feels like a star wars just a mix of sort of generic star wars stuff at the beginning a little bit the patio on and like lost guy looking for his master all of the kind of tropes about the forest but the back third was great. There was some surprising stuff and I just thought there are a lot of set. Pieces is in narrative sequences. That weren't really comment. Heavier exploration heavy. It was just you know these narrative things that would happen visions and stuff like that and it was cool. It really was so well done. There was a lot of cool creativity. Some nice surprises. Yeah I was much more into the back third and I thought it kind of it kind of sagged a little a little bit. I guess maybe the third quarter of the story this kind of when you're on death Amir for the story. This is a good point. Okay this feels a little bit like someone designed all this stuff and they needed to figure out a narrative justification for this slight detour. But whenever I'm sure if I hadn't had to replay the first half of the game the pacing so it's it's hard totally get my head around that but yeah I liked it. I liked the ending. I like the story. I actually thought it was perfect. Length the whole game in general. If that have been a little bit longer it would have been pissed I but yeah obviously European was very different. So it's It's like so many hours twenty something like that. Might make in game by like steam clock said thirty-something hours but I left it either and that was a lot of time Yeah I would say like around fifteen twenty hours I saw one reviewer be like short and sweet now this is just short and I kind of wanted to smack them because this is a perfect length of reader reader linked us that Polygon Article About Twenty Twenty Hour Games. That was the outer worlds which I didn't finish together as also twenty hours. Yeah Control and outer walls and this like there were a lot of games that are kind of that link. It's not a bad link long you've got to commit to it but it's not you know forty hours sixty hours so yeah and then I think if if a game is GonNa be like a hundred hours it needs to be special needs to be justify quality to justify that Yeah so I have a couple of thoughts Like I said the the lane five thought was perfect perfect. The ending was so delightful. Just like the final sequence and and everything at the end is just as awful and I just feel like it's a really really good mixture of all these tropes and ideas ideas from other games and it'll just blend together really well. It just feels like that. That holy Grail of Star Wars game that people have just wanted for a really long time and like I said last week. I'm excited needed to see what kind of innovations they bring to the sequel We didn't really talk about this last week. But I think that like The exploration they want you to go back in revisit planets and I did actually on your recommendation Kirk go back and revisit one of the planets but I find kind of a chore for a couple of reasons to do that and I don't enjoy it in the same way that I would like another type of metro-wide Vania and I think there's a couple reasons for that. I think number one first and foremost is the lack of decent rewards and the fact act. There's no real incentive In the game to go back you don't get items and the interesting items. You don't get Rewarding abilities that are optional. Oh you don't get any super challenging sites that you can only find by revisiting areas anything like that. There are a few optional bosses. But they're all really obvious defined defined throughout route your normal progress of the game and I think that the game I mean you can get like like forced buffs and stems and stuff like that. But it's not there's nothing really special. Aw there and I think the game suffers a lot for that The fact that every single chest you find is always going to be a cosmetic item which to someone like me is just like who gives a shit about that's up and Yeah I just think that a game like this. A Metro Vania really needs that carrot in order to encourage you and and make you feel like it's worth it to go explore And I did enjoy Kirk. I I went to that crash ship. The you recommend it. I find that actually in the game you kind of prodded to go explore it and it it was really cool but at the end when it was like okay the big reward is like three ponchos and impact. That kind of is feels lame. Like I just wish it's been and something else some other cool ability or I almost could've done without the skill tree in the game and just like had all of that stuff on the powers and abilities been stuff you find you know what I mean. Yeah but that wouldn't really make any sense for you. Being Jeddah taste creating I would have liked to see the game. Yeah I agree with correct. I mean that's what's cool about metro is that you go back to the same places but you actually have to go back to the same places in order to achieve something more there in this game just isn't really set up that way and that would be cool if it were but yeah I mean in Metro does do the thing were there are cool. Lake Hidden Puzzles that. When you saw them you get like a health off canister which is the same kind of thing? Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's an upgrade but just sort of a generic upgrade not a specific unique ability. I don't know I mean I guess you're saying Jason but thoughts on that so first of all so I actually a more a better comparison for that would be Zelda's heart pieces because they're similar or to this and the game where you have to find three of the force thing to get a health upgrade or whatever One thing and this might sound Kinda pedantic and trivial but I actually think it makes a big difference The way that the force like pieces and the life pieces are shown on the screen they look just like the echoes. You find. They're just like blue balls and they don't have a distinguished luck like they don't really look like a cool thing that you find the way that like a piece of heart does and the Celta game and I think that kind of makes a big difference. It's not as exciting exciting to go and find this blue blob of whatever as it would be defined something that looks like distinguished and interesting and just like I don't know look cooler played cooler sound effect stuff made that things make a big difference. Yeah totally yeah I think I mean so I get what you're saying saying though I think that that they had a balancing act and this is sort of the same thing. We were talking about on twitter last week like if they changed the game to have all these unique things. You would unlock the way that in dark souls you could maybe find signed a unique sword somewhere if you go and explore something like because there's a whole complicated loot and stat system in that game that works. They're kind of in a bind because there around that many things they can put at the end of those Optional areas. And I think like the one that we were talking about. Yeah the crashed ship on. Xenophobes anybody playing You if you once you get double jump go check. Check out that crash because it's really cool for me..

"First week of December. Actually, weirdly packed. Yes. Show me those first day numbers people playing on the no on the PS four to pre orders are live. Now bundles going from thirty dollars US dollars. I'm forty dollars. I'm sure this bundles those you can get some uncharted shit. Fucking suicide squad at least. Awesome. Okay. Yeah. Moving on finally, the real news. The biggest news the biggest news command into most compel you way know that wasn't the conquer. Yes. Pure as we said before that this is going to be red alert red alert is there. So okay. If you're looking at polygon article linked to red alert Tiberia and dawn, which I wondered if they meant Tiberius, son. I want to have your in. Don might have been commanded conquer four which came out super late like EA years and stuff. Tiberius son was one of the classic ones early to mid two thousand. So I wonder if that's what they're talking about. Okay. I think he got confused. Sorry screaming over there cutoff, Dan. But it does say that they are planning to remastered command and conquer and Kamenica red alert the person they have quoted was lead programmer on February Don red alert. Okay. I probably just doing the first one GDI. Great four K up releases. Those are the two that got me into the series two's, the best one, but hey, forget start with those two and they're getting a petroglyphs studios. Who did a great goo which is a great game. It's totally a red alert type came out also empire at war the Star Wars one which good. Yeah. So I'm super site about that. I would I want any way to play more command and conquer in modern ear and with a lot of these like a lot of these other sort of HD updates. I wonder if this is them sort of testing the waters to see like what the interest level isn't doing more of this at some point. I mean, it's not like EA doesn't need something apparently got their fucking phone. Clash Rayo, apparently, the composer, frankly, Packy is back. Yeah. So are they going to do what the hell's March is that hell March grinder, I've got that on my fucking Spotify. I think those are all Judas priest song titles. Bitting soundtrack those command and conquer soundtracks for rental or to holy shit. March is the best great, Jim. I mean, it's a weird song. But yet it is enjoyable in the way, like the doom soundtrack, I was gonna say like intern. It's like icon to me in the way that Darth Vader's like Dr cure of flying over the statue of liberty. Yes, it is. It is it is one of the video game songs that I had like listen to that. Yeah. He does great work.

"I never felt any push towards using helix credits or the need to use more money on this game. If you need an example of AC trying to push Hewitt's credits play a couple of hours of unity Odyssey's the best in the most restrained use of micro transactions. The series has ever seen since they were implemented, and then he goes angry, regulars please. This is not a Cecil creed anymore. I see is a God. God damn AC game. AC games is about history traversable and the fight between freedom and control, which all our president. Oh, so you say he was? I see what you did here. He saying he was arguing the people saying it's not an easy game. He says it is a goddamn assassin's creed game assassin's creed games have always wanted about history. Traverse will in the fight between freedom and control which all are present and vital part of odyssey. Stop bitching. Enjoy. And I just think it's a fucking awesome game regardless if it says agreed. So yeah, RJ from Spain wrote in and said, I would like to contribute about assassin's creed, odyssey XP boost. I was playing a game without the boost for a total of sixteen hours, and I did not have any problem. And then same as Greg saw the polygon article since I'm loving the game, and I always liked to be over leveled. I decided to get the x. p. six hours later I'm finding myself to be to over levels for my current story missions. So I don't think that the argument the game was designed with this boost in mind, and it keeps bugging me all the hate, the games, receiving prompting. Jason, try to tweet about I have the people can see this game is great in not dismiss it because of the micro transaction controversy Jarrett from Australia road in high grad yesterday, US people to right in with their experiences of odyssey and the x. p. grind I was just about to right in saying, I find it fine. It was able to progress doing mostly the main story quests with just a few side quests now and then stay up to the required level, but I'm around thirty hours just finished a story, quest with recommend. The level of twenty four in the next means to request is level thirty two, what the fuck. So unless I've missed something and after eight levels, which is probably around ten hours of play, just to be able to continue the story. It's a major buzzkill to be invested in Cassandra story and be forced out of it to do other things for ten hours just to progress that said, I am really enjoying the game a lot. And the side quests have been mostly enjoyable, but puts a bit of the Downer on the game for me, Jared from Australia, a valid thought Jaren. We set our thoughts yesterday where I disagree with you, but that was yesterday show. I think it's all part of the same story today I'm living. I'm living as Cassandra loud and proud, but I hear you and I thank you..

"I tried speaking publicly about this in led to a whole hullabaloo with some people because my introduction to this had been through some more sensationalist coverage of this. Some I hadn't read polygons article at the time. I had people talking about these boost as if I'd seen YouTubers and people talking about how it was right in your face and they were trying to get in there and it was a super grinding game. And my only response to that could could be my own personal experience, which was that while by the end of the game, I found myself largely because of the pace I need to play when I'm reviewing game is considerably faster than the pace that any sane and reasonable. Human being would ever play a game. I found myself near the end of the game, having points where Maya level felt not insufficient for the tax. You know, the tasks at hand, but certainly lower than I would like it to be. I attribute that to the fact that I had started just main lining main main story content in order to make sure that I could speak authority authoritatively in my review. So. To answer the first part of what I think is probably a much more complicated. A multi state question is in my experience, I have not found that in order to make this game a good time, you need to stumble over into office, you know, in game store and buy yourself an, you know, an e x p booster. I wasn't even really aware that that was a thing until Stephen pointed it out to me at the office one day because I was just in LA, LA review world going on my adventures, and I had not even, you know, engaged with as much of the because I knew that there was gonna be things where, hey, you can download swords or something like that, but I hadn't been entirely aware of the timesaver tab. I guess I had missed at the time Mitch, an entire tab of time savers and x. p. is only one of several boots. You can also buy materials to to craft things. There's a whole bunch of things you can buy. So it's not just the. Expos, right? So I guess my first the first thing say is for me, I did not find them necessary when readers have asked, I've said that you don't need them. I still stand by that. I think when you talk about time savers nowadays, though it's complicated so to the question of whether or not this means that the company designed it to sort of a screw over and send you towards that tab. I'm no fan of companies by any stretch of the imagination, but I also think there's a balance between mistrust and kind of positing conspiracy. Right. And I think I think, well, it is probably likely just by virtue of the fact that yes, video game companies. Any company wants to export you to a certain degree because that is what you are there for for them? Right in in many respects in the broad gross capital. View of it anyway is that there's probably there was probably discussion internally about exactly how to handle the rate of experience gain in hopefully. Right. And I think at least in my experience, this is the case they settled on something that felt sufficient, but also I'm sure there was a component of in there somewhere that was yeah, but also may be, people will do this, but but I don't think it's not the, it's not. It's not a Star Wars battlefront two situation where that stuff is built into your progression system where it is completely unavoidable where the actual mechanics of the thing there are are not even just gambling adjacent, but basically gambling, right..
