"Take two CEO Strauss Zelenik says. Google stadium over promised on its abilities. Strauss Zelic is the CEO of take two, and he's a very smart guy. When it comes to the video game business, he's the boss of Rockstar and gearbox, which has released games like grand theft auto and borderlands, both very successful franchises, so it's pretty safe to get behind his big bets. Take. Two did bet on Stadia. By bringing bread dead redemption to to the platform, but Zelenik seems less enthused about Google Stadia today. Steve Watts reported on xanax stadium thoughts for Gamespot writing. Take two CEO. Strauss zanuck says that Google stadium over promised on its -nology, and didn't seem to expand the market like it had hoped in a talk at the Bernstein Annual Strategic Decisions Conference. Zone explained why the company had supported the release of streaming, and he doesn't sound positive on the platform so far. Streaming technology is upon us, he said the launch of stadium has been slow I think there was some over promising on what the technology could deliver and some consumer disappointment as a result. Stadia launched late last year, but about a month ago, it offered users the opportunity to sign up for a free trial of the service. If you signed up for that trial like I did when it became available, then it's about to run out. I have a reminder in my phone set to go off in about five days to remind me to cancel it or rather you know, make the decision regarding whether or not I want to cancel it. And I think I do. I was an weirdly am to a certain degree, still excited about stadium, but it all really comes down to the fact that while having the free trial, I really haven't used the service at all I have plenty of games to play on other platforms, and even though I really like the idea of playing PC games in bed on my laptop, all the Games that are available on stadium ended up being ones. I can plan other ways. There are still games being developed for stadium. which is what I am most interested in. Shannon Stud still left Sony Santa Monica and the God of war team to make something for Google Stadium and I am very excited to find out what that is. But. I am sure it's years away. Zelic seemed to imply in the Bernstein annual strategic decisions conference that take to didn't have any plans for continued stadia support at least nothing in the immediate future. That certainly doesn't mean it's dropping. Stadia or anything probably just means that if any take two games, do come to stadia. They will probably just come well after launching on the typical console and PC platforms. I I still Kinda Rooting for stadium I still like it conceptually, but Xanax lack of confidence doesn't really bode well for its long-term, future? Cate.

"You can watch that on YouTube dot com slash kind of funny games and the kind of Funny Games cast game of the year is live right now recorded just yesterday one of our twenty twenty announcements that we're GonNa make the Games cast more topical and more current so you can go get that right now as well I today were brought to you by mid mobile. But I'll tell you about that later for now. Let's begin the show with what is ain't forever. We'll be the roper report. Kevin never their time for some news. Three items on the report. Baker's acres doesn't I noticed. You're not using the paper anymore. You're going straight laptop right. That is not me okay. It's not allowed to print issue. It was the the printer fights me all the time. Yeah it was also that I brought up I tell you it was a great example. Everybody I'm doing it. I'm I'm gathering all three three stories and Kevin was very much only three three and then it's like the POK Mon wants to. That was the tone I put. It was a three unto itself. So is that thing too. I was gathering pokemon news today and I was like man. I'M GONNA. I'm in good shape. I looked at the clock and I'm like I'm not in good shape. It's nine forty three like I'm late on this. The printer always seems to be the one thing that screws me up. Okay and also I'm wasting paper which I'm not a big fan of and I also think with how well we're doing the platinum tier this year with three months of announcements the bullshit of like. Hey you get my notes that taking a fly anymore. So what's the point in Britain amount. You know what I mean. We visited there. They're speaking of people being pissed number one on the Roper report. Debbie Montreal's teasing Batman once again. We're GONNA read Steve Watts at Gamespot DOT COM Kevin. If you looked at I have a director highlight thing you bring that up. That's the local we talking about. WB Games Montreal has been hinting at what appears to be a new band. Game in the studios goes now dropped. Another new teaser. The latest comes in the form of multiple images that fit together to form a crest. The teasers dropped across social media sites facebook instagram and twitter can put together into one image. Twitter User Martin Berlow COMP- composite. I should say them into them to show similar to American government. ICONOGRAPHY with an eagle on top. The teasers were accompanied by the slogan capture the night. This is the same slogan as the last Caesar which also showed a series of crests morphing in rapid succession. This new. This is new but no more no more clear as to the meaning of it. Fans have lawn speculated that the next game will center around the Court of owls a shadowy chataway aluminum body like organization that brokers power in Gotham the Eagle Crest would throw a wrench in that theory. But it's too early to tell without an official review W triologyfs the studio behind the spin off Prequel Batman Arkham origins in two thousand thirteen. That game received mixed reviews including a six out of ten from Gamespot in part because it came so close to rock cities game. I didn't stand out now. Years gaps in the last game. Rock cities Arkham night in two thousand. Fifteen Montreal might have more opportunity to make its own breath blessing yes. What do you think finally happening? I mean is it finally happening. I don't know man probably have e- three is my guess. No way really. Really Courtney. Are you a Batman Fan but you have something to say. Wow this is news to me. I thought he'd just like recess. Bucky done stop it. Unless you fucking announced the game in the next couple weeks stop it. Oh he looks like Francis I I yelled out with my parents totally right. I'm not mad. He's disappointed disappointed. This is Mike Up. Yeah why is it. Why is there such a doubt that will happen to you because that's not what rocks like that's not what games do and WBZ's like WB shows up at e three definitely but Batman Games? Don't really get announced places there's like they'll show like first official gameplay at eighty three years something like that but for an an actual announcement it's going to be a random day bite right. That's that's just what it's going to be. How at an event? They wouldn't be randomly be teasing. Should out you know. How soon do you think it'll be cattle? Because that's my thing is they started teasing it in September during my open comers week right and now it's months later and he's again but they tease with just another image. I know you know with the same like was it. Capture APPs your line. We captured the night. And I I you know I should probably call my wife in this one. But every like the way they were spelling night is like night daytime or nighttime and everybody putting the K.. In front of it. I'm like we're taking the translation up there and I thought the same thing that I mean. We know what they're doing obviously but also it's their own post that do both English and do what they do okay with In the English version As UH I don't even want to talk about the fucking implications of like when we're getting a trailer and stuff CAB BRINGS US back up. I just want to talk about the actual logo that we have a Batmans coming smash. This thing's going to move to get there. That's a good theory kept Someone said this Thursday rents into the quarterback. They they're very wrong about that. This is a GDP badge But the center is different The symbol that Kevin pointed out that kind of smashed is very similar to the order of Saint Malo Go. That we've seen in Arkham city in Arkham night so could be Something to do with that Usually usually we have talents like holding the sword or whatever in the middle of The GDP badge. But I think it's interesting that we have a focus on talent and there's actually no bird in the middle will as we know. The talent is the assassin that is Kind of working for the Court of Appeals. I think this actually feeds in a little bit to my theory of the core. The court avowals has kind of taken over Gotham like in the original The original comic like they've been secretly behind everything And so th this is my theory. Is that like they've even infiltrated places like GDP in we've seen like they posted this badge up in separate places the bathrooms broken This might be teasing to like a theme or a kind of like a show. Only be like once whoever finds out that The DC PD CD like half of them are like work Who worked for the quarter? vowels it might break the it might destroy G.. Totally right like that. Yeah Yeah So. Those are my thoughts and theories so far and I think there is a theme. I think between the two and I I think is yes. Thank you It is the court of owls infiltrate like secretly being there because the last one we saw was like a slight of the slightly quarterbacks logo that turned into an obvious a demon head logo. So I think it's going to be a lot of like they've been behind everything so that's the thing. Yeah that's very interesting. Take on it. You're saying and I like it a lot. Then it's not going to be like so many people like gang warm things. Maybe it would be but it's going to be revealed that the whole point is that the court is everywhere in everything. Yeah now what point. Do we just nuke Gotham exactly because I think this is like the fifth game in a in a row. Gotham is taken over by the bad guys. You're a little Little series called no man's land where the United States is like. You know what go. You're not even part of it. Okay everybody blown up the bridges. Basically what Arkansas city. It's weird but it's so good. Yeah Yeah so yeah those are those are my thoughts as one. They'll fucking revealing viollis thing. When do you so you know your thoughts and when they were review? How do you think we're is in imminent release trailer? Drop something happening I. It's one of those things we the last issues we got was four months ago and when I first saw this my first thought was like maybe they meant to plan this like image like a week later something and then something happened and they couldn't go back on the first image that they tease and stuff like that so I I have no idea like I feel like we're going to get at least two other earth two or three other image teases before we get a like a reveal as you. It all depends ends. I think on the next week we get next Thursday like okay now like if we're getting all starting to say if we don't get anything like even a tweet or anything in the next week is they were probably not gonna get even another image for another fucking four months I saw the question that someone had to ask for the this this question. If you WANNA bring in that space time Dave wrote in to Patriot dot com slash kind of funny games just like you can't worrying at the show at free along with the exclusive post show and says. WB Montreal continues to tease their game on twitter. uh-huh sorry everybody. Is it safe to assume that they that the next Batman game is going to be an ex genuine. That may explain why they've been so quiet for so long. And if so will it be reviewed the playstation five launch event. They've been quiet for so long because they've been apparently work. They worked on two cancelled games before whatever they're working on now The Recipe Superman. Yeah Recipe Superman which. I don't think it was one of the real ones as far as being revealed at the. PS Five reveal event. I I doubt it. And then also if it's guaranteed next-gen I don't again I talked about my thing earlier we're like WB Montreal's Dell's original game origins came out literally in the last month of before the PS four came out And they never ported that over to next Gen consoles or or anything so like Do They WanNa do something similar again where they put this out in the last couple months before next gen hardware to hold us over until rock steady next game like they did with origins and night. It's hard to say So I don't know I would love. I don't it's tough. It's a really really tough question because I see it from both perspectives. WE'RE WB WE WANT TO MAKE as much money off this game as possible. So let's put it on the consoles that have more. Everybody has a one hundred eighty million units shipped right now let alone pc but then of course the ability to tap into more processing power. All's other stuff making cool I don't. That's what he will. That's making a game. Look amazing on a new console is such a problem for first party people to worry about my granted it's awesome if WBZ come out and be like it cuts so many different ways. I WanNa make as much money off this game. Keep it last in I think that this game will stand stand out and set. Wb Montreal on a different pedestal. If it's done it takes all the oxygen of the launch lineup when the launch lineup is people And if they're so confident and it gets people to rush to get consoles like arcade for me where I got a PS four. And that's the other thing right is the other side of it is that Arkham night of course was such a early release in the playstation in early early got to later but every earlier. It's that idea of like. Yeah what do you which one do you want and I feel like rock. Rock steady is the proven bat. Like well let them worry about Nexgen. Let them get every belly whistling. Yeah Mock Amasi. That's kind of how I see because if you look at when Batman Arkham origins released. That was October twenty fifth twenty thirteen which was less than a month. Yeah November was when the in Xbox one came out so I wouldn't put uh-huh put it past.

I love it sixty four teams down to sixteen and four days for anyone who talks about it or wants the crap on college basketball is a product or whatever you can't beat that sixty four teams gets eliminated down to sixteen. In four days that is just nonstop sports action. It's like the red zone channel in the NFL except for ninety six hours. That's what that opening of the tournament is like it's fantastic four kimes out at once you have upset after upset. Remember Loyola's win over Miami last year Dante's game when he three and and they covered on that three pointer. It's just a fantastic view. Inexperience. Okay. So let's let's come in hot.

That's coming into the tournament red hot and people have been coming after me on Twitter for this today. I brought up the point Auburn similar to a Yukon back in twenty eleven back to when Kemba Walker took the huskies on that tournament. Ryan to all the way to the national title when they beat Butler and Jim Calhoun last season at uconn going out with a bang. Yes. You can't struggle to shoot the ball and Auburn relies on the three point shooting. But you can't. A really good shop locking front court and Auburn block shots at the highest clip in college basketball. So you're talking about controlling the temple from the shop locking. They turn the ball over at a top five clipper. They force turnovers at a top clip with Harper and Bryce Brown. Dunbar. Was a fantastic ball defender Molik Dunbar. For them, you got foul. Trouble today against Tennessee. But Auburn still smoked a really good Tennessee team. It's an interesting region. You have North Carolina. If you look at cross the board Kentucky as the number two seed, Houston who I love I got him at one hundred twenty five to one to win the national titles a future. So there's so much love that I have for this region. Iowa State in the next to you at even like Auburn coming into today's game and throughout the SEC tournament. Be watched the way they could play space the floor. Push the tempo. Rebound the basketball block shots create turnovers. They have the defensive tenacity and the offense to propel them to a. A national title game or at least coming out of the mid west region and Kansas thinks this year, they're terrible. So that's that's if Kansas was fully stocked, and they had a Azabu K, and they had with Gerald Vic and Silvio dissociate ended up being eligible, then it's a typical K you team northeastern money line. Yeah. Book tournament title winners, north heat, northeastern shoot the ball. They have the fourteenth highest three point percentage. In college basketball. Kansas gives up a ton of threes. And they don't control the tempo with Dotson and Grimes who has been playing better of late northeastern is gonna pull this one off at they're hitting threes, and I expect them to. Okay. So that's that's the mid west region. That's auburn. That's that's a shocker hot coming in. How to like it? What about dukes region? I spent a lot of time talking about tonight. It's obviously the team that everyone has the most opinion on there's a little bit of controversy with Michigan state being the two seed in their region, but that's just geographic. And and how the bracket rules work. Is there anyone in dukes region that actually matches up well with them? Yes. And it's Michigan state. It's also for Jimmy attack. If you go to the Sweet Sixteen so if I'm looking at it from the perspective of the dancing the biotech to the Sweet Sixteen against Duke Duke should roll against UCF or VCU IVC. You move on in that round round of sixty four matchup. Virginia Tech beat Duke at home. Granted that's without Zayn Williamson. The biotech was also without Justin Robinson their ball pressure variable create turnovers, that's the key for by tack been great turnovers press the four shoot the threes. Kind of like an Auburn except Auburn has a better front court than biotech blacks us, a really good big. I don't think he can naturally design Williamson though in transition, and that's the key. Can you stop? Can you slow down? Dukes transition offense. I don't think I can do it. They might play a close first half. If that's what sixteen matchup does indeed play out of the key. For me, though is Michigan state while. Like like, you mentioned they shouldn't have been in this region. From the perspective of you win the big ten title game. Why the heck are you? The number two seed facie Duke are potentially Duke in the in the east region. But Michigan state man, they can slow down dukes tempo Xavier Tillman, Kenny goings, Nick ward, they match up tremendously against Zion. Williamson weather or not dukes. Big Markey's Spalding comes back. I have a hard time Betty against caches. Winston right now. I did a story earlier this week. How valuable cash Winston is to the spread. I give him around three points. And you're watching today's Williams is probably worth five or six or seven. Even the way. He's played in play CASAs. Winston flat out carried Michigan state to a win. Today. I smell when I talk about him because he's one of the most underrated players in college basketball. And yet he won big ten player of the year. This guy could shoot it can distribute score out the drive can create can attack again defensively. This is the best defensive team is those had since two thousand thirteen so people wanna. Michigan state has been ousted in the round of thirty two the last three years. So it hasn't had this type of defensive team with an elite big in Tillman on the ends of the floor. Mat mcquaid is healthy. So you look at that. Louisville matchup Michigan. Steve watts Louisville earlier in the year, but mcquaid was out for that game. I think Winstons able to propel Michigan state past Duke in the elite eight coming up down the stretch like he has all year. Wow. So you like Michigan state enough to put them ahead of Duke? All right. So it's all you got Auburn as a final four team. You've got Michigan state as a final four team in the west region, Gonzaga. They lose the Saint Mary's kinda flukey. I assume or do you think that there's real problems for the zags is the one seed, well, it depends on the match up. I don't think it's I don't think there. I'm not saying they're going to lose him the route a sixty four Virginia lose to fractured eye. The play a game of that sixteen see coming in in the west region. But if a Baylor, for instance, a Syracuse, I don't have either of those teams enter your Syracuse grad and really wanna take Syracuse. I've sure I would. I don't think either of those teams are able to up seconds Agwu, whoever wins that eight nine matchup, although I do have Baylor. The biggest issue for you. Go back to date St Mary's game that wasn't a fluke to me because you watch Saint Mary's and they play it's such a sluggish tempo. Able to control the glass, they defend the three ball. Well, Zach Novell had a semiautomatic actually from Chicago one of the worst free point shooting games. I've ever seen him. I have only a sophomore. So he's only second year hasn't played a ton of March madness games or conference tournament games. But Kazakh is biggest issue is if you can match up on the perimeter if you can rebound the basketball and control the tempo, they're in trouble because they thrive by controlling the pace with Perkins and you're out. So then if it's okay. So if you don't think it's an eight nine matchup, but you do see them as being vulnerable who in that region? I watched Florida state against Virginia vows, very impressive performance. There. The foresee their Michigan is the two seed and Texas Tech who I loved earlier in. In the year. Don't sleep in the in the big twelve. So are you are you a Texas Tech guy in this region? Yes, I love Chris beard, arguably I- coach, caveat Tommaso. Those are the best coaches in college basketball Giambi line. This guy is about to jump to that tier what he did back at Arkansas Little Rock when Little Rock came back from a sixteen point deficit with four minutes left against Purdue in the round of sixty four that was with a team of nobody's. But he's one of the best defensive coaches in the country. Texas Tech's ball pressure is so elite legitimate two way for rats, and what are the better players in the country in JIRA Culver, who I think if you get a matched up against Gonzaga, which I do expect Texas Tech to at least advanced to the elite eight. That Texas Tech Michigan game. If you wanna bet the total it's going to be a low total from the Vati perspective. You bet the under because both teams are going to be in those spurts where you don't score for five minutes. We've seen it with Michigan. We've seen it with taxes tack but back to the red raiders elite defensively with their ball pressure decrease turnovers. Tariq Owens, the Saint John's transfer can protect the rim. Odia? Well, who's been a Texas Tech for the last couple of years can bend up against Zion going back to attack almost upset Duke at the garden when they were up for much of that contest. I really liked tax match up if they do face, Gonzaga because the ball pressure keeping the ball out of the middle with Clark and hachi more. We haven't even talked about those guys to the better bigs in the country, and again Owens and Odio OSCE match up really well against Gonzaga's bigs Ivy covert the most valuable player of the tournament. And Texas Tech gets gets at least around ahead of where they finished last year the elite eight lost Villanova beard at attack beeline for Michigan Gonzaga with Mark few. Jim boeheim can be a tournament wizard all in the west region. Pretty good coaches in the west region. He's alive Hershkovich host the Hershon hoops podcast..

"You about that later for now. Let's begin the show with what is an forever will be the rope report. It did it did it. Five on the report baker's doesn't. Thank you number. One is halo infinite going to be a game as a service. This is from Steve watts over at gamespot halo infant appears prime to get its big debut at three twenty nineteen. But it may be very different kind of game. Comments from kike Wolff kill the head of halo. Trans media at three or four three has added. More reason to believe that the studio is imagining this is an ongoing game or live service quote. We have to be able to change content quickly wolf-kill told fortunes brainstorm design conference said I guess not quote, we can't afford to wait three years every time we drop new product. And have it be blackbox because the games kids are playing are changing every week the reference to the three year development cycle as outdated paired with the title of halo, infant itself would seem to suggest that Microsoft and three or four three are planning. This entry as an ongoing game of some sort. That would also make sense alongside her reference of the games that kids are currently playing. It sounds like a reference to games like fortnight, which issues regular challenge. Updates and new between its large seasonal updates wolf-kill. Also reference quote, having a set of rules that people can engage with and buy into for years to come end, quote as the head of trans media. Wolf kills focus is how to tell different kinds of halo stories across variety of media. That means she may not be directly involved in game development. But she probably is planning other media and storytelling. The takes advantage of the story established in halo infinite that can mean we see Ray reecey stories regularly updating in the game and continuing through other media or criss crossing through. Both the studio recently had to respond to concerns about micro transactions following a job posting it has also specified that it will not have pave loop boxes. This news comes halo head of franchise development. Frank O'Connor as recently confirmed that halo infinite will hit PC and Xbox One rather than wait for next gen consoles. Andrea what's your read? I mean sink or swim here. Right. Like, they have to have to join the party makes a lot of sense him forever. As saying a halo battle royale in the even for me. I'm like, oh that sounds interesting and exciting and so many people can wrap their head around. They have so many fun memories of halo multi-player. King of the hill was one of the most popular halo modes right Gulch, I can say both. Whereas I've heard through adversity versus bluetooth. I think that Microsoft wants to be able to pivot quickly going into the next generation of hardware, obviously, as you just stated Frank O'Connor has said that this is going to come out on Xbox One. And why wouldn't it? Why wouldn't come out on both Xbox One whatever XBox has coming next because of where it's positioned in the generation cycle. But as far as a game service. I think it's the way that developers figuring out how to do ongoing post launch content to keep those players invested in the ecosystem that they've spent so much money time building. Why not right? I think we're seeing a lot of people doing it correctly doing it the right way and keeping people engaged I love to point to asan's. Creed odyssey is really great. Kind of poster child for a single player game that was able to keep their community engaged throughout the post launch season. Exactly, obviously four nine is the kind of poster player. So I think you know, if they can strike a balance between making a really meaningful campaigns. That's always been part of halos history. While also staying true to their multiplayer routes that could have something really special fact checking me on this and kind of funny dot com slash wrong. If you don't know, but that was the deal with halo five as well. Didn't they make a lot of they made a big deal? I remember talking I think David LSD three one year about the fact that they were doing post launch like here, we're giving halo stories..

Well last night there was screening of the new marvel comics movie Benham, the it's kind of a. I don't know if he's exactly a superhero. He is it's kind of like a monster will be Tom hardy stars in it. Lots of affects lots of explosion was stuff like that. Michelle williams. Actress is in the movie as well. So we're going to interview them today. I don't know if you know that she's a delight. She is a delight not only for the is. She is a beautiful woman. But maybe one of the most talented actresses, you know, that she is the most nominated actress of the two thousands. I didn't know that nominated for the category award wartime. Anyone? In the years two thousand till now I will give you a little piece of trivia, you may not be where I have not gotten one Oscar nomination in that period of time. I did not know that I'd be clearly did not do enough research. So dean question from my white top hardy likes to play who is a very good looking fellow. He likes to play characters like bane and Batman or in this movie where his face is covered. Max. Yeah. Right. He is he's easy on the eyes for a lot of women. But whatever reason his characters are always the covering up. His favorite gets jealous. Male directors who don't want him taking all the attention away in this movie. He's not completely faces and covered all the time. In fact, I would say like ninety percent. But there there are moments where transforms only that's the other thing in this movie. Steve watts special effects, you know, that's my favorite lots of CG's affects entire show special effects. You know? The fact that I'm even on it as a special effect as far as I'm concerned the. Yeah. So he transforms into this. This this parasite monster Debenham, Tommy. Seeing this. He's actually, you know, he's got this. Brutish persona from all the royalty place.

They did use me for most of the vomit stunts when they were shooting that movie when they were doing the anti gravity stuff. They said come on Stephen throw up. So dean, you said heartiest shy. How has Ryan Gosling interviews Gosling is is okay. I'm not gonna say he's not he's not like, Tom Hanks friendly. Okay. I'm Hase's is the top of the list when it comes to genuine friendliness like really nice guy that you want to hang out interesting. I think you should answer this for the sake of the public that wants to know more about being when you sit down with these stars. And I could be wrong about this. But a guy Tom Hanks he looks in the eye he engages he follows what you're talking about. He listens. How's that different than the others? Ryan Gosling is very defensive. He's not Stanton. That's really standoffish. But I've seen this happen. So many times when we're with other journalists and are asking ridiculous questions and incredibly personal questions inappropriate questions. So he he kinda puts a shield around him a little bit. So it's it's difficult to kind of get close to Ryan Gosling. Tom Hanks is like the has been your best friend since grade school. You know, it's just. Meryl Streep is like that. And you know, most of them are super friendly and super nice, but if you are a little bit defensive eight one five texture, no dean, Stephen likes, the other Gosling, you know, the baby goose right after it's born.
