Fresh update on "ubisoft" discussed on Beyond!
"Ever official from PlayStation, but that didn't stop as we've said hope and rumors spreading because people sparked a series. Sparks of hope. News sparks my hopes, yeah. New skull and bones from spreading. For people in the fandoms. Infectious. Sucker punch came out with a blog post kind of talking about some of their legacy games and how they're keeping support on some of those servers and kind of expectations for that stuff. But in it, they also confirmed to kind of quell any expectations that there are no infamous or side Cooper games in development with them or other studios as of this time. You know, as they say, never say never, we could see these series come back. I think any IP that is well known ever has a chance of being revived at some point by a media conglomerate because that's just how entertainment works these days. But for now, don't expect one. I'm crushed as a psych Cooper fan, but I also didn't put too much stock into those rumors because again, they weren't coming from Sony, they weren't coming from from the devs kind of talking about things. We know sucker punches a small studio and they only really have time for one game. It's gonna be a ghost to sushi my sequel. Like, that is obviously what they're focuses. Like they know that that's the studio that made the very good game. Ghost of Tsushima, right? Why wouldn't they make more of that? The biggest selling new IP for Sony, I think of the PS4 generation. Did huge they're making a movie. That's gonna be what they're focused on. Other studios are not working on those games as well at the moment. It's a bummer, I think, but I think it is better for it to be out there for people to stop sort of this rumor mongering from happening to stop that stuff from spreading. So don't expect that stuff anytime soon, don't expect a surprise, and if it happens, then you get to be delighted. And that's kind of the best way to approach these things. I really, really loved infamous second son. I loved playing that. When it first came out, and the PS4 still had that new car smell. Like I loved. I loved all of that so much. Ghost Tsushima is one of my favorite games ever made. And so I'm happy to get another sequel to that. Like if you look at like just based on the numbers, the amount of sly Cooper games we've gotten the amount of infants games we've gotten in the amount of ghost of sushi with games we've gotten. It's okay if they kind of level those playing fields a little bit. But I do like that they weren't like we're never, ever making those things again. Like they basically said, you know, never say never. There's a chance. So ideally a really cool thing would be, you know, that's the sequel to ghost blows up like the first one did. The studio expands, hires more people, or they connect with some with some kind of third party studios that can help them remaster or report some of their classic games in their legacy catalog. And you'll get to see those things again, because I think that getting new experience like the infamous games of the slack Cooper games in like PS5 graphics would be super cool. And so I do hope we get there eventually. I don't necessarily need brand new entries in those franchises over a Ghost of Tsushima SQL, which is like, that's the thing I want more than anything right now. Yeah, there are series I both love like you, yeah, I think second son was such a wonderful first kind of entry on PS4 to really get into. I've adored the sly Cooper franchise for forever and wish it still was prominent, but there's, yeah, there's a reason they're focusing on certain things if they were that in demand they probably would have spun something up by now. Like if they thought the money was there. So for now, don't expect anything. Maybe one day like they said it could happen, but goes to toshima, we'll probably come and we'll all be blown away by it and hopefully just a few years. That's a title. I really hope so too. It's definitely not weird to have to say. Other things just to very much briefly mention as we said, ubisoft is holding that multi show showcase in September. We'll obviously cover anything big out of that show in a couple months. And also for anyone who's maybe been holding out hope as I know some people have for future bully installments, there was a report that allegedly rockstar hasn't confirmed it, but that allegedly Red Dead Redemption one and GTA four could have had remasters could have had, you know, bump ups, but that allegedly those projects have been shelved in order for the studio to focus on GTA 6. Unsurprisingly, they are focusing on the thing they know is going to make them a hundred bajillion bazillion dollars. 'cause GTA four was my first GTA and I love that game dearly Brian. I know you're a big fan of it as well. And it would be nice to have parody of Red Dead one and two on modern consoles to be able to play easily without having to stream via PS3 or the backward compatible version on Xbox, but that just doesn't seem to be in the cards right now. Yeah, I wonder if that, well, first of all, this is frustrating because I love GTA four, like I said before, and it's also like it's sort of like, it's this weird kind of forgotten. It's weird to call it a forgotten game because it's sold billions. But the amount of times we've seen ports are remasters of all the other games in the GTA series, or most of all of them. And the attention has been put on GTA 5 with new content over the last decade. It's kind of frustrating that they didn't, again, throw this to a studio that could modernize it a little bit and put it on new consoles. I know that that's like, you know, armchair game dev over here, just being like throw money at it. But if there's any company that can throw money at it, rockstar, right?
"ubisoft" Discussed on Kinda Funny Games Daily
"It's like. Yeah. You can have a cat. You could have a dog. And this is what I'll say, though, in the leaked gameplay that was leaked a few months ago, it does seem like there are answering for a lot of people's complaints with that original thing. It seems like they went back and revamped a lot of those ideas and try to lean into more CFDs type gameplay. And so that gives me hope, but I will say that it is still ubisoft. And so I would not be surprised if this week or next week. We get the school and bones reveal. We go, oh shit, all right, that looks fine. That looks all right. And then the game comes out, and then you have it. People play it for a week. And then the content isn't there. To make it live, right? Like you play it for a week and you go, and you go, where's all the shit? Where's all the cool cosmetics? Oh, where's all the different missions that can go on? Exactly going. Where's the cross play? They have good ideas. They're just not able to execute on them very well, and it sucks. And I feel like they're just not connected with their audience or the community at all, and there needs to be an open line of communication so that they can actually earn these things out. And here's the thing. They test a lot of games and they keep things very like, hey, you can't do this, this is like, you can't show any of this, but we want your feedback, but they don't really do anything with that. So the fact that they make it so closed off to who they test these products with also is hurting their end product. So I'm really hoping that school and bones is going to be something that people want to play because it looks interesting. I like the realistic graphics. So I'm kind of hopeful, but at the same time, IC ubisoft and I'm like, I'm going to be very hesitant about this. So well, so let me sprinkle in some positive ubisoft news for you..
"ubisoft" Discussed on Gaming illuminaughty
"Freedom of this dead, but yeah, we trying to make it. We trying to make it. So make sure to rate the show 5 stars, 'cause we ain't trying to go back to work. Engage with the algorithm. Let's get it. Let's get it. I already announced the games in the last episode for January 2022. So if you want to know what free games, again, go look at the last day of episode. So first, opening conversation since the last podcast, the first big game if you want to call it that really it's the first game of 2022 has released the new one. It's from ubisoft, and it's called Rainbow Six extraction. If you're unfamiliar with it, a few years ago, ubisoft held an event inside a Rainbow Six called quarantine, where basically some zombies attacked. It was a PVE mode you could play with some friends. It was okay. It got a really strong response, a positive response, and ubisoft being ubisoft. They said, you know, we see how much you guys love this game mode. What we're gonna do is we're gonna take that game mode that was included in the original rainbow 60s for free as an event and we're gonna charge people $40 as a stand-alone game. Now it is available on game pass. You do not have to buy it, so if you own the game pass, you can get it on PC and Xbox for free or $10 a month. But yeah, it's a new cooperative strategical cooperative. It's not a zombies anymore. They change it to aliens. Alien shooter where you have to extract objectives, survive with teammates, rewards you would like upgrades and stuff like that, full blown title for $40, how are we feeling about this, JJ? So I'm going to say this and I'm sure ethos is going to test this. If this wasn't all gay past, though, oh no, man, I don't think that too many people will be playing this game. First of all, I was under the impression that this was just going to be like an expansion of Rainbow Six itself. But it's not. It's its own stand-alone game and it's 40 bucks. From when I played, I don't think that is worth the 40 bucks, so for all the people that have on game pass like, this is.
"ubisoft" Discussed on The Business of Esports
"Highly recommend everyone do. It's hosted by Jeff and I we do it every week. It's on the business stories coming out of the metaverse. We talked about ubisoft quartz on last week's show. And what's interesting is now more details have come out about ubisoft sort of application of NFTs to their triple-A games. And so I love the first sentence here. It says this week ubisoft went ahead with its much derided NFT experiment culminating in an offering yesterday that seemed almost too absurd to be real. In order to secure the wolf enhanced helmet a and ghost recon, you had to have played the game for 600 hours on PC, and even then there were only 250 up for grabs. That's 25 full 24 hour days of ghost recon for those keeping score. The idea is once those NFT helmets are secured, there can then be a marketplace where players sell them back and forth within the ubisoft court system inflating their value. The other items being sold as NFTs are 2000 copies of a gun that require no minimum playtime and a pair of pants that only requires a hundred hours for the chance to grab one of the NFTs. So I won't get any more into this article. But now that we have more details on ubisoft courts and their integration of NFTs into their triple-A games, can someone please defend you soft here? Do any of you guys like this thing just sort of? Perspective. There was slave labor. Right on in with the rest of the country. No, I really do like it. You're rewarding your players with some really rare items. It's no different than what's already existing other than true ownership of this digital asset that you can sell. Actually, I have a problem with it and that I don't think they're selling enough of these. I kind of liken it to the sneaker market where they come out with these exclusive yeezys and Jordans and things that get resold as this article mentions, right? And inflate their value and who's not doing the math, there has to be some known optimal amount that they can sell that they can that ubisoft can maybe retain most of that cash. I don't know. These numbers seem so arbitrary, and maybe that's to generate hype, but I just feel like there's a missed opportunity and not going bigger. It's my same problem with the Gucci X box. I wish they didn't have any sort of a lot of scarcity, otherwise it literally is just the digital in game item that scarcity between a hundred and a thousand. It's still the same effect, right? And then you have ten times as many in circulation that you can profit from and also when it's too scarce, then there's also that while I'm never going to get it so why even try kind of mentality. So I think it kind of also can hurt you. So the broader question I wanted to bring out was this Paul and I talked about a bunch on meta business..

Like, that was just launched earlier this year. Yeah, yeah. So this is the delayed State now. Wow, they've been hit hard men. They've been hit really hard. Yeah, it's crazy. Is anybody think Far Cry 6 is getting delayed or do we think that the one delay that you guys are talking about? Is that the only one we don't think it's getting delayed further. No no I think this state is likely to hold off. Probably why cuz you're seeing seeing the trailers and all and they're like pimping him putting them out there, the main bad guy and stuff. Like do you just feel or do you feel that that that and I feel like they should probably put in like realistic time line for. Yeah, they delayed it by quite a bunch. So I think they're on the safe side. Yeah, yeah, for sure. All right, I just need to bring it up cuz it feels to me. Like, when you look at Ubisoft, they had a bunch of stuff and then it was just like, bang, bang, bang delay. And I remember, you got to bring it up, crossbone or phone call and bones or whatever a lot and then it was just sort of gone. Yeah. And then beyond good, and evil gone. And now these two at least they're announcing. So, I guess I guess that's the positive is that they're announcing these delays just sort of sucks overall? Yeah. Yeah. What else we got? Let's do. Should we do Indies first? Let's do these and then let's do. Oh what? I don't actually have an indie for this week. I'm done run to play anyone.

TSM Can't Use FTX In Name
"This month. TSM team Solomid signed a naming-rights deal with cryptocurrency exchange ft x worth 210 million dollars over ten years to be known as TSM. Ft x. That branding however is under siege as Esports leagues around the industry are blocking or will be blocking the FTX portion of tsm's, new name siding that it breaks part of their sponsorship and partnership rules for their leagues.

Elden Ring Revealed, Launches January 2022
"Well elden ring was originally revealed. Eighty three twenty nineteen but since then from software has been very tight lipped about the whole project. You know we knew it was going to be a collaboration between hit tack on me. Zaki and george are martin going to be the largest came from from software. They attack oh today but we knew little elves leading to a drought of information with some wondering if the game even existed at well. That doubt has been removed. Because elden ring now is a trailer anna release date and is not too far away at all with the long waited trailer for elder ring showing off at the summer games. I two thousand twenty one. Which jeff keely almost willing up when introducing it his great to say because he's really passionate about what he does and also this is likely to be one of the biggest triumphs the season so he was visibly chuffed again to announce his abandoned. I'm co is publishing. The game nate do presentation of their own during eighty three twenty twenty one so we could see even more details. Watch this space about that one. I will let you know if we hear anything else but banned co did release more details post trailer and here are a few things that we learned about elgin ring. This is apparently from softwares. Biggest game tonight perhaps highlighted with the horses. We something new to from software games and now the games we've always walked around on for however this time we got hoarse and looks like we can fight on horseback as well as jump super far in the sky as one of the most memorable moment for in the trial is seeing that whole sleep vertically at speed on a jumping pattern given we got horses feels like the land we traverse could be really big indeed something on the scale of the which you three or the ghost of tsushima so from software games tend to feel like open world games but this is a little bit of game they've trickery with smaller zones connected via loading areas or in the case of demon they've got a hub world l. d. ring is much more of an open world fielder things test can be really exciting to understand how this is gonna plant now happen done really well and so badly two of the last few years.

Ubisoft Reveals Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora With New Trailer at E3
"Avatar is coming out. Its avatar frontiers of pandora. That's going to launch in twenty twenty two the bone to pick with this trailer. Well you know. It's a standard. We're not gonna show you any gameplay. Trailer is the dramatic way that they go ahead and do things on these first. Looks like we saw a battlefield. Twenty forty two last week they show you zero game play but they show you what the game could be like going forward so it. It essentially relives the the original movie. What's that about it. And i know again. I've never been a big fan of avatar. I know it as rob mccallum. Our good friend said it lost its cultural footprint for a while. But you know there's still a fascination in certain parts of the world it has regained the top spot. All-time sniff sniff of interest in game. Sorry but i want to hear your thoughts on avatar frontiers upendra my friend so the trailer makes it look like the game could be really good but there have been avatar video games out before and they've been monumentally awful. So how many times have we seen these three. I don't. I don't take much stock into these cinematic trailers that they show up. That shows zero game plan. I don't take any stock on anymore. The and that's the deceiving part to. Yeah you know that kind of upset me with tiny tina's game two right. They didn't show many gameplay footage of stuff so again battlefield. Twenty forty two. I mean they're gonna show for that this weekend a few days here back. We'll probably cover it here on one of our shows but still it's it's it's i'm not a big fan of i just dive because they really absolutely shove it wowed me ten years ago two thousand or maybe two thousand seventeen thousand eight when they did that stuff out of it. Looks like it could be cool depending on what it is but i just. I don't see anything video game. Wise with the avatar franchise just has not had a history of success or even anything mine minorly resembling success. I don't i don't see this i don't see this being something. That kind of leaves a footprint anywhere.

Herman Miller Director of Gaming on Company's Dominance
Discord jilts Microsoft
"According to the wall street journal. Discord is ending talks to sell itself to microsoft or any other company at this time in march. There were rumors that microsoft was attempting to buy the gaming chat firm for about ten billion bloomberg says discord reportedly rejected a twelve billion dollar offer from microsoft according to the publication sources. That are close to the matter. No surprise that these talks broke down in the context of recent gaming. Ipo's discord surely new worth a lot more than twelve billion dollars. It was my view that if microsoft got discord for ten billion or twelve billion it would go down as one of the best acquisitions of all time for them. I suspect dischord. We'll go the ipo route and likely command a twenty billion dollar plus valuation.

Anzu's Plan to Evolve In-Game Advertising with CEO Itamar Benedy
"Any of these Sports networks other properties on this episode of the E Sports Network podcast for bringing back a gasp from about a year ago wage a little more bonetti. He's the co-founder and CEO of on zoo in a more. Welcome back to the Shelf. Hey meets great to be here tomorrow is on the show back in February of 2020 where we discussed the growth of in-game advertising age people who miss that show or too many of our new listeners since then on to his a platform that makes it easier for braids to get into video game worlds and for developers to open up more potential White spaces in their games for Grants Pass. I'll do is work with Publishers like Ubisoft at lide Castle to deliver Brayden moments for major. It's like Samsung Pepsi American Eagle and many more Esports. We've seen it gave ads take Auto larger role especially patiently League of Legends open up space in summoner's Rift and it was filled by MasterCard an Alienware among other partners and just this morning as a record this on Wednesday, February 10th, 2021 rocket League announced that Ford is going to take over there it gave Billboards for the upcoming which are major on zoo also had a big adults with this what the platform recently raised nine million dollars in additional capital in around Kool-Aid buyback Fetchers and hbse Ventures. There is participation by plenty more investors, of course, including Mark Merrill, one of the two founders of Riot games, this follows two other funny raises of three and five million. So in Mark Gratz of the race, first of all, what are the plans for this capital? Yeah, thank you Mitch. So as you said we raised 9 million dollars beatcraft is one of our previous investors are still leading gaming Esports v c. B c is a new VC which comes from the sport world and a lot of touchpoints around gaming and then other investors are wpp the biggest advertising group in the world, which is also like in the existing investor and Sony Innovation fund, you know, Sony is one of the biggest gaming groups in the world and the owner of PlayStation. So that's a privilege to have them on board Mark Romero the founder and chairman of road games on League of Legends. As you mentioned didn't call ins the founder and CEO of super awesome that recently got acquired by epic games and the Chicago Cubs. Yeah, the baseball team go Ventures and gainesville's and illumine Adventures. So a very crowded and exciting structure of invest investors to have on board. I'm a Cardinals fan so we'll let the dog So invested things slide, I guess but grats on all the different people who came together you mentioned before we started recording you were in the position that every founder kind of hopes. They find themselves in which is we have a few people. We have a different options for Capital so we can pick the people that make the most strategic sense for us going forward. What did you find from the mobile the different investors? What were you looking for? Especially as guiding parts of the company to push it Forward? Sure. So I mean, you know what this round was not about it was not about as fast as we could have fine as it like very very fast as what it was about bringing the best structure. Number one number two, it was about, you know to maximize shareholder value. We could raise almost double the amount but we didn't want to make sense. This is the amount of cash we need for next stage Rose and then in the future if it's a year from now or two years from now we can do another round off. For that makes sense. So we were not looking at at you know, these things it was more about we have a lot of confidence in him. Advertising is going to become a major business model for game divorce across all platforms, through PC Mobile and an important ads category four Brands media agencies and the ESPYs and and the question is how fast can that happen or more sneaking about big Brands big Publishers not easy companies to convince them to do something new. So when we meet partners that can help us to make this happen faster than wages. Are we get excited one form to partner is again investment one is a strategic partnership and they can elaborate more of some of the Partnerships we have in place and some of them is people who join our team. So that was what was guiding us and looking at the different, you know buckets of we are investors came from there is some you know, some like VCS and financial institutions. There is advertising and groups. There is game. Groups and there is a sports organizations that have a lot of touch point in going to become an important overlap in my opinion the next two years. And of course there is like with the values that we want to group represents and communicate us companies gauges as the leading investor for equal opportunity and Which choice for us an important to him and announcement to basically said if the world that was how we were looking at it that's a great place to be at

Ubisoft Is Developing A Massive Open-World ‘Star Wars’ Video Game
"Open world star was game is in development. Not at electron arts sits in development at. Ub soft it's from the division developer yousof massive. No indication has been given us u whether it would be single player or multiplayer. Or what part of the star was timeline or win and might be released but Ub eve chemo says quote on. It's an original stores adventure. That is different from anything that has been done before. Sam what do you make of that. It can't be two stories. you can't be star. Wars chess masters tarazi yummy. Oh it's none of those things. If you just eliminate all the way star wars has manifested itself. You can figure out what this game is because it's not any of those cannon whatever it is going to be cannon with with just films and everything everything our young everything hanan. I think this is such cool news. the division is not necessarily my cup of tea but like big aaa studio. That's really really well. Resourced and capable of of of doing star wars justice undeniably so Yeah i'm really really excited. We also dug into some of the jobless things because obviously now the the word is out there like our star wars project and they're able to be a little bit more descriptive there. Nothing to revelatory words like open world action adventure linear and lawn on linear storytelling. An rpg style progression were thrown around. So it's a video game folks you heard for as many star wars games as we've gotten. Yeah it's been a million where you know this this little trailer montage. That's running a showing several of them. We haven't really ever gotten a big aaa open world star wars game. There has been role playing games. And you know jet. I fallen order is. I don't know what you would call that wide. Probably i would. I would think on the positive side. This is just yet i fall. And were because it's a bunch of open areas and ed fine with me but i want i want like i want like sky rim levels of open like our fallout lending open area. Yeah i want like actual open world star wars game. Where like that's this weird hole in the in all the star wars games we've gotten in the past if it was that that that could work well but what worries me is seeing the division footage and thinking about the avengers and like you know we did our lessons being learned about what You know open world games are when they are also games a service or are thus not being learned about that and people really like the division say anthems that the thing that scares me as much as a jazz. Yeah that's a that's a very real you know. I'd like star wars as much as the next nerd. But the franchise assertive written into a corner because there are no jet. I in modern star wars so unless they go back in time to old republic all any player ever want to do is run around as a djeddai but the fiction of every single star. Wars game has to itself for why you know. I'm not a jet. I but i'm using a lightsaber or Or calcutta's in jeddah. Fallen order is a jet. I'd here's why you know. No one knows about him like i. It's this big stumbling block. That like every star wars game has to overcome so but even if you are jet. I like you can't be getting a new lightsaber and equipping new loot and being on this loop dried. Really like he got different different robes. Sure where they can make that work. that's horrible. I think that's why a builder public works of the time when there were there were a lot of it is. I'm definitely a fan of a lot of ubisoft. Open world games. A lot of the Is far cries but Yeah just to echo what you're saying. The divisions are really my cup of tea. Either a shared world sort of lewd or shooters not really what. I what i'm into. So i don't know i don't know what to make of this Tina i know you like a lot of assassins creeds. Obviously like open games shema. What what's your take on this. I didn't play of division one. I did actually like the vision to i think there are. Rpg elements that make sense and like you know really big dense world to go around and do different activities in could could be a really good fit to so. I have confidence that us off. Nasa is a great choice in general Breaking out of. Ea exclusively is a good thing for them if felt like felt like ea developing those games Was a bit of practice for what is now known as lucasfilm games. And now they get to branch out and pick like a clipper per the type of game that they're going for so that they don't feel necessarily like hamstring into Squeezed into one publisher particularly. So it's like they got a little bit confidence with the successive jet iphone. Order and star wars squadrons and a couple advancements the battlefront two. So they've figured out a formula that could work and now they get to poach essential essentially developers from different talents to figure out what else they're gonna do in this increasingly dense cannon star wars world.
Lucasfilm and Ubisoft Announce Open-World STAR WARS Game
"Well you might also want be ubisoft. Who announced wednesday that it. Swedish massive studio is collaborating with lucasville game. Lucasfilm games on an original story game set in the star wars universe. The game will use the snowdrop engine. Also used in tom. Clancy's the division electronic has exclusively deal for star wars games that expires in two thousand twenty three but he says it will continue to develop star wars games. Non-exclusive lucasfilm games also announced tuesday that an indiana jones game is in development with machine games. Scott i have a hunch. You're excited about the very excited about this as a as the gaming community i'll be there spokesman for the moment It's exciting stuff. Machine games known for their work on the wolfenstein Recent games those are excellent. first person shooters. This doesn't indicate whether that indiana jones game would be first person or not but back to the open world star wars stuff. There's been a little bit of stagnation with star wars licensed stuff since disney got a hold of all the licenses they stop their own internal studios disney's interactive went away And they moved everything to a or they may deals with the a for most of their exclusive licensing to star wars games that a couple hits in there a couple of big bombs some very controversial stuff with battlefront and microtransactions. And and that sort of thing Was at the forefront of that mess. So it's been kind of an ugly period or than just period and what it sounds like. Now they're they're basically saying all right. Look we've got we've got the lucas games. Banner back it's here and that is a lot of cachet a lot of history behind it Even outside of star wars related stuff. And we've got to be soft. Who makes really great. Maybe some of the industry's best open world games. They're open world style is very well known and respected And the division to not not that kind of open world game There's real prowess to that. And i think that that's the right team And given that when all the other resources they will be soft they should be able to make a really killer open world game. Which is my favorite kind of game. So i'm beyond excited about an open world star wars game made by a big city like this and it's nice to see him spread it around a little bit. Not be so exclusive exclusively. Ea
"ubisoft" Discussed on Waiting In Queue
"Yeah yeah i mean that's true. I was just curious. I i mean like it doesn't matter either way. I wonder if they had to pay for it. It seems kind of weird like the police would come in the me like. Yeah but what. If it wasn't what if it even ubisoft that made the call like what if it was somebody else that made the call. It just happened to be in the ubisoft. I'm sure they're building. I'm sure they're investigating. They're just investigating on who to send the bill to bill to its massive. I know for a fact if ubisoft gets it assasin creating to have assassin's creed is not going to have an update for a while. Let's just say no. Morris hasn't scree games all bankrupt that's okay. I think we could live without without any more being in this. One looks really do bad. But i'm waiting because if all if all goes well cyberpunk will bless us in december months. Even though we've all been waiting for years dude. I saw that really pissed me off about it. They're like we were just kidding. We were never developing. And i don't even host that i was like yeah. This is pretty much This is pretty much. Then i saw. I saw a news article that they're putting in a easter egg achievement. As you can do It's you remember the keanu reeves thing where he was at the xbox that like yeah conference and or lease he said like you're you're wondered earlier zero breathtakingly. He knows at microsoft conference was it microsoft or was he three or maybe it was at e three at microsoft's booth.
Tommy Padula, DarkZero Esport's New Head of Partnerships, On Connecting Entertainment, Sports and Esports
"As you age. Talk about d z as a 1 e sport organization. That's a little bit unique in the E Sports World. You're going to see most teams have a few different squads under their roster, but these like off going to focus entirely on Rainbow Six and we're going to become the top-ranked rainbow 16 in North America and it's a A strategy that's worked out pretty well for them. At least thus far but from a partnership perspective. How does that change your role? When you compete in one team when you're entirely tied to the Rainbow Six brand to Ubisoft, you know as would you're searching out Partnerships. How does that affect it as you just have the one team to base everything around? Yeah. First of all great. Great question. Of course, I'm in my I'm in my first few weeks. I'm still absorbing. I think it's important to note that you know, I'm still taking everything in understanding where we're positioned. Um, I'm not really getting to know the big players at different pedigrees and different tiers within Esports. And I'm under you know, I'm fully aware of our Boutique organization right now. And and how do we position that but I think this is what's really important. Is that right now, we're we're going to start laying the foundation for doing sponsorship and and Partnerships in Esports correctly and in a way that brands are used to and an Innovative way, but also in a way that brings your used to change that as we enter new scenes cuz we we absolutely are going to enter new scenes and and evaluate a quiz like, you know, acquiring and and I believe I believe Thursday for like starting those relationships now with branch that we can have founding partners that build with us so that we could actually integrate them from day one not try to build something and then see who fits into wage rather build something in lockstep with some of these Brands and and find some core founding Partners as we enter new scenes will enter together. They'll be a part of those conversations and and this way they're dead we put ourselves in a position to work in in a way that's more collaborative more integrated than we've ever seen in any sports or even in traditional Sports in the past. So that's what I'm excited to do with easy. It's a great answer. There's some really dead. Eat figs you could do a t Sports as it develops of as it grows. That is a little bit different than the traditional. Okay. I'm going to look for a sponsorship like you might see with you know, the New York Knicks. It's like okay, we could find some unique sponsorships, but generally people know what they're getting into it the mix and with dark0 you have a little bit more ability to be flexible to grow together with that being said wage based in Las Vegas, Nevada. I know that dark0 cares a lot about being part of this community being part of this even though e Sports is a global phenomenon Las Vegas is one of the most unique cities in all of America. You've got Major Brands like MGM Resorts that you worked for major sports books Global Entertainment Properties, massive events concerts sporting events. What are some of the opportunities you're looking for specifically in Vegas to help tie dark0 to the city. Love it. Yeah, you got some good ones here so long Las Vegas is the global Capital Sports entertainment people from all over the world know that if you want to have a good time get entertained push the envelope and be wowed Las Vegas is the place for that Esports is a global Sports entertainment platform that people all of our all around the world participate in in in global Brands participate. And and so I thought what what better place to stay up the flag in Esports it's and bring teams organizations. Leagues and brands from all over the the industry and all over the world to Los Vegas to participate in some, you know Monumental like, you know staple events yearly annually where we partner with some of the biggest venues in a midsummer when you see on the ship whether that's hyperx Arena whether that's the new Resorts World Casino, that's that's being built here across from the win MGM Resorts, of course where I come from the many properties there. I was off work closely with a lot of that that team there to start looking into Esports and how we were going to collaborate with with different organizations input on some of that. So I think putting together some amazing events where we invite some big teams and big organizations to compete on the Strip under the lights with some fans with some crowds attracts people from all over. I think that's one of the wage Equals like we really cool here a really cool to accomplish here. And I think that it starts with those relationships on the strip and they're in our backyard. So I'm looking forward to starting this conversations. Definitely you obviously have some connections to some of those properties as well as will be a really cool to see how you can tie that in Vegas and Esports of sort of danced around each other for quite a long time. There's been some some events held you have the Allied e Sports Arena like you measure the hyperx Esports Arena, which is this massive building on the Strip, but I feel like we haven't seen the complete dive in of the city to e-sports in a way that's going to really show the the events that are going to be know for for a long time. I guess Evo's here for a long time. But that was the flagship Vegas Esports of it, but it really feels like there is a big opportunity for Vegas to be the Ford Theatre. It's been on so many other things and bringing Sports into the fold and creates a really unique sports events. That really wouldn't be possible anywhere else. I couldn't agree more and I think that listen these things take time. Sometimes it's educating the different properties educating educating folks, but I think that you know, God Mention Evo in this other events that we could start to mold off of but there if we'd be we'd be crazy to say that there are Monster, you know Monumental a huge sports events that people will look back on for years that are not going to that aren't going to occur right here in Las Vegas.

"I looked at the next person on their old walk to say while these likes that sex because he killed my wife or husband in the car accident or something because yeah. I didn't really save a lot of pedestrians and perch from debts. I did mostly focus on the main story. I in the beginning did a couple of side quests but after that i main line it's on the main story which is also why i finished a game in twenty hours. I did come back to do a little bit of cleanup pass to see what's the region takeover mechanic whilst like because i had not at all interacted with that really not a whole lot to it now like three spots. You have to go to and do a little bit of thing and then it's done pretty firmly to yeah just like a at some point but like you guys are all talking and people are in chatter talking about like they feel Fatigued by ubisoft open world. I got to say. I'm not seeing a huge difference now between ubisoft i mean i do between maybe a ubisoft game and ghost but only in the way that because ghost of tsushima as developers at obviously played ubisoft games. They tried to do the opposite in some way. So the very like you're showing your heritage even if you're trying to switch things around because you're trying to do the opposite of what somebody else does which can feel like that's what's happening is just the opposite so i haven't really felt like any game open. World game in the last ten years has really been. That's why like hub based games the most like a mass effect. Yeah i think a mass effect open open hub based game. It almost always feels better. I don't have an issue with the open world games. I'm just saying. I also don't get fatigue from usually like odyssey. Replaying that games like six thousand five hundred ninety nine hours long. And it's i mean if it's fun it's fun i think. Sometimes it's intangible. I guess they do feel the same but a lot of games feel the same that even made by the same company so i guess to me game. Su feel same overall. Like i don't know of any game that really sets it office a completely different. Is there an open world game. That like is completely different. I don't think there is ghost. Ashim somewhat different are any. You can know that feels.
AMD is hitting it BIG with NAVI
"Week we're going to be talking about where I'm going to be talking about. I'm the only one here is cyberpunk 2077 Ubisoft hyperx MSI ever media's new webcam have got those new virtual webcam. Basically through an app will get into that home video course are as well or course, you know got those going to be the same thing. And then the biggest thing would be talking about is the big navvy announcement to actually happen this week and looks very interesting in the GPU market right now, but let's get on with the show. So first off we have that no man's sky is actually going to have next gen performance on everything off. Means PC Xbox series ex and the PS5 as well. So you're going to get that type of experience as which is based going to be 4K in time frames per second obviously in PC if you can unlock the frame rates, you can actually do it for more but right now graphics cards are getting there where it can actually do quite a bit of frame rates per second in 4k, but not quite yet. I think a few Generations will be able to see like the probability or at least Uncapped or way over a hundred frames per second in 4k in video games, but it's going to be a few generations for that one as well as technology gets better. The graphic Fidelity gets back plus with different types of features helping with that process. It just makes it for an all better experience in gaming in general. So look out for that and annulments guys. I actually do recommend. No man skies. I think it's actually really great right now. I think what they've done over the three or four years of since it's been out his make a really great game, even though when it came out it was not that good. But now it's actually really really good. So look out for it now moving on to Ubisoft and the rebranding of the digital distribution site plus their subscription is being rebranded as well. It's going to be we saw connect and it will be soft plus so they're basically getting rid of any type of creative title for just an ordinary title in general. Now the subscription service will be on stadia and Amazon's Luma which is basically their version of cloud gaming because cloud gaming is going to be the biggest thing moving forward right now. We have Xbox we have Amazon coming out soon. We have study we have In with the Geo Force now just to name a few it's going to be interesting. I think Google's going to lose this battle, but they sure are going to try to not lose this battle whatsoever. But they're just not really a gaming company don't really understand that much about it in general but it's interesting to see where it's going in the next five to ten years. Now speaking of free games. There's a few free games. You need to look out for first of all, the epic game store does have the Blair Witch Project Free or Blair Witch as it is the Blair Witch video game. It's free until November 5th 8 a.m. Plus Ghostbusters the video game remastered same time. It's going to be available until it's free, which is November 5th at 8 a.m. So go pick it up if you may well want some free games. Might as well just pick it up anyways, but speaking of free games. There's also the elite dangerous Horizon is free for all players. So if you have the dog, Game go pick it up for free. It's a nice addition where you can actually land on planets. Now. The new edition is coming out where you can get out of your spaceship and that should be interesting as well because it's actually I'm eventually going to be competing with Star Citizen and Star Citizen isn't even out yet, which is another interesting tidbit to know that star system is still in development and will be in development hell for a very long time until they feel it's right to release it whenever that actually is but should be interesting to see when they actually released it if they're going to release it or if they're just going to have them we're basically as it is right now the movie on to cyberpunk 2077. It seems like it's actually going to be released in 2077, which is a very long time for me to preorder a game. But anyways Jokes Aside has been delayed again until December. So Twenty One days later than the 3rd delayed release date even though it's gone gold. They're still trying to basically make it work on the consoles CD project project read said that it's ready for PC, but it's not ready for the consoles which is kind of funny to actually see because it's like well if it's ready for PC, then let the PC players play it I mean we don't care about consoles don't want to play this game on consoles. I want to play this game on PC because I prefer to play on PC in

"It doesn't mean Shit. In in the aspect in the real story, the real story is not the. Cassandra just not being the main characters an added bonus. The real story is Eve's Guillermo and the entire Ubisoft Company allowed for over twenty years maybe thirty. People to abuse their coworkers and do nothing. And the only reason it's happening now is because in this age of social media. There's enough fresher finally. This should have been dealt with Eve's twenty years ago. Fishermen del from the very first complaint effort given hr reps should have done something about it, but they didn't whether it was at the behest of Eve's or the higher ups or their own self being now. I want to keep my job. Yeah, ty shed right away. If you lose your job because you defended a rape victim. Will applaud you don't worry about it. Is Pretty obvious at this point that the reason these people got away with it for so long is because they made the company money. So, they could look the other way of their behavior as long as they were pumping games that were too. which make the argument. I think if you're UBISOFT. You'RE GONNA make money doesn't really matter who you put in charge. I don't think it matters now. I don't really like base the soul. They sold a shit ton oppressor persia. And it was a terrible fucking game. Yeah, you can sell anything assassin's creed label on it right now, and it's going to do pretty well. There's not even assassins anymore. Yeah? So Like your? Own Link? Instead of protecting the people that were preyed on your pretend the Predator. And if there's any reason that I caught you, be solved, I'd love to. I'd love to boycott. Somebody who has been knowingly abusing and. Sheltering abusers for years. That is more than okay for me to start boycotting. Yep absolutely yeah, and it only makes me worry further, because if that's UBISOFT. What's going on, EA? What's going on in Intendo? What's going on in square annex? What's going on in Sony? What's going on at Atlas heads? Even go further down. The wire was going on in fucking CD project read what's going on in Indy Studios? We don't know yet hopefully with this story does is it opens up the possibility of finally speaking about it. I hope. I hope Nintendo is just still okay. It's like I said the other week when we were telling you about how. Out of a motive, can't I wonder man I I would. I would lose my shit if a motive was was coming out to be something or like Im- recipe Satori water, but imagine stories came out about him. Or obviously now. Satory Wada the the old president of Nintendo, who passed away a few years ago. who I realized really respected that man was a fucking legend. The we tanked the we. You tanked and Satory WanNa didn't fire anybody. He cut salary in half. Because, they failed because he failed as a CEO or president. I should say he failed. He took the loss. He didn't lay people off in by the way their companies like again. We've talked about this for that. Lay off people in record sale days so. So you know not every, not every company can be a saint, but Nintendo at least for the time. Being seems to be at least one of them. And just collectively I'm holding my breath just hoping to God that..

Gentleman like guys like us like. Up For me as a brown man who grew up in the nineties like I had do with a lot and I'm British lawyer I have lost opportunities due to my name. Being the Shaw. But. That's beyond the points like the fact is that. We there there has to be a changing of the guard. Because the old. He's GonNa go holiday pardon. He's going to step down. Yeah, like for example we're talking like I remember one night Chris and I, and a few others were out, and that saying that if there was a situation where there was an APP that was basically like luring minors. Tim Cook would be gone. From angle right away. So like they're like the guy the top is is the guy to blame because if this situation was happening and if it was known about it. and. He did nothing about it. That's a huge fucking problem. Two thousand five or talking about how the people that were doing the shipper. The golden children couldn't do no wrong. They were untouchable. Yeah, that tells you. This has been going on for a long time, and there's no way that you've been doing this. You've been hiding it and if not supporting it by promoting these guys. Yeah so you should go eaves. You need to go. I don't care how like you? Eve's maybe UBISOFT. He'll legitimately is ubisoft. Don't care. It's done. It's over. It's done go. and honestly you kind of need a change of the guard. I am not. Disrespecting the elderly, please. Listening do not think of that. And why are you make what it is like?

"Was better than he as dumb album. That bar is not that hard to clear. Also true. I was happy with it. I think overall I was happy with it, but I only look back on assassin's creed far cry and watchdogs. I, don't I. Don't remember. I've just managed to forget everything else all the mobile games, the fucking hyper escape or of the fuck. It's called like. I just presentation they did. The everything was too long as well. Spend way too much time on everything and then. There's also something never shelly beyond good and evil to has just. been vanished for a long time, which is also worrisome. There's like they didn't show US anywhere. Anything from independent stuff. They didn't show any. Like, there's a Lotta suburb. Ages missed like basically, said here's game. You already know Mobile Games. You don't care about games that have already been out and we're just talking about how good we've done with them game. You've heard of game. You've heard of and game that you knew was coming because they got leaked and we don't even show you game play for it. So. True? That's great, also the most Joe was it that like amazing? No I'M NOT GONNA. Sit here the same way that it was Sony. Thing where we oldest cool shed. Like basically, Ubisoft was like okay. I saw a couple of things that I thought was cool, but everything was like. Yeah I saw this of. UPDATES for games that are coming in early knew about and then one reveal, which was far yeah. That's about that's all I took away from it. So, it wasn't bad to me, but at no point is like the playstation five reveal. It definitely definitely could have been a lot better, too like they definitely could have either shorten it, and it would have been a little less taxing on you, or they could have just cut down a couple of the games being lengthy, and then showed us some more game stuff I mean I'm glad they put the justice dancing in the fucking pre show because I didn't care about that. It was. We're not seeing all the cringe. The UBISOFT presentation it was Kinda strange has true was the two years ago Hashtag? Girl would or whatever? But yeah. That was the Hashtag for it. Girl would. Cause the. Name Yeah! She was every time she got excited for a game. It was girl would so that was the Hashtag that she put an? Yeah. Digital is meant to be weird.

"Is because cyberpunk already look like a cool game? And now you showed US canneries reasons like Cherry on top. You haven't shown us a game yet, and your advertising actors that gets my attention, because if that's your first selling point to us, that worries me. What thing? Like a What's his name Gary, Oldman was in black OPS as victims Nov and thought hey, he's a really cool character, but. I don't think they were like in your face telling you. Gary Oldman was NFL. The first time I think they've really push. It was with. Kevin Spacey. On Push, it was the villain. He was in your face the entire trailer. Oh Man I gave his age poorly. There's a there's a point in the game where you're driving around like his military base with them like in. It's like this like sort of town. And, of course he turns to you and goes. There's a nice junior high over there. That didn't age very well. No did not know now. That's been memed a lot. I think that it might have been the same game. The prepare to press to pay respects was too. THAT'S FUCKING IRONIC! Jeez I game has got some real mean. Potential there. It's just a me. The game doesn't even exist. We are far cry crisis. Look I really enjoyed. Three didn't like four all that much, because it was way too much like three. And then five I kind of enjoy just because it was pretty fun like basically shooting the equivalent of Westboro Baptist church crazy, so that was Kinda Fun roll that's awesome and I mean six like I like the idea that it's grungy. Cartel things so might actually pretty interesting. But again like you're not showing me game play and you're saying it's coming out in February. How the Hell do you not have? Game played a show then. That also kind of gets my attention. Not, even asking demo, but you could have shown game play with like like as soon as the trailer like end, cinematic Shirley and you could have just popped in thirty seconds of like quick shot gameplay just to show us. This is what those going to look like, but instead you show nothing, so I always get that guard up. Whenever cinematic trailers revealed in the Games coming out with any year. Mike Dad's. That's weird. WHOO be soft. Did say at the end of their conference that they have another ubisoft forwards at might be. That might not be like October. They might do that right around the time. Watchdogs is coming out just to hype you one more time. I was hoping I'm hoping they do it in like a month or two like it. Keep it in the summertime. Because everyone's going to be like, wait. What conference will you talking about? Lake right now is coming..

"Could I'm assuming that's like a little bit aside stuff to maybe. I mean there's always suffolk. You kind of keep you busy. Let's see what do I. got here quickly over hyper escape which? When I saw the trailer I went. Oh, this looks cool. This looks really cool I like this concept, and then goes battle royal. I'm like I don't care about this anymore. It looked like a another battle. Royale also seems weird because they were trying to make it seem like there was a story to it on my guys. It's a battle royale like you're not gonna be able to get a story, because no one's going to give a shit. I think the story is people. Go into the battery out to get famous, so they can. Do what you be cool if it was a single player game with you within this like hunger games kind of thing you, but instead it's just a rail so Mike Okay so you're just another fucking fortnight all right fine. And if they actually put in a single player campaign. Go player campaign with battle, rail. That would be kind of interesting. It would be neat, but you know I've seen various people. Talk about it. I was watching. Angry Joe Stream of it. And he had, but one of his buddies, saying been watching streamers who are really good at this game. Play it, and this doesn't look like it's got any inspiring like things to. It looks like it's just another another cookie cutter which is disappearing. And then disappointing, there is also sits on a mobile stuff. Which I got really fucking mad about because no offense like Ubisoft, no offense. No one gives a fuck about phone games on these things, because all the suckers already buying your shit. You don't need to hype them. And the fact that they've ruined by. Here's the magic by turning into a mobile game. Fuck you. Thanks. Other series. Yeah, it used to be so good on, and then just a mobile game now. was everything and they also they also t Sam Fisher from splinter cell, and turn it into Tom. Clancy's elite squad another mobile game like.

"While I'm not seeing anything right away so I'm not going to look back deep into, but. I guess moving on then. We had a UBISOFT forward. Yup I wanNA talk about games. I but I kind of want to go and talk about what they didn't talk about which is, they didn't address all the The allegations and the people that have been stepping down and their excuse was well. It's a pre-recorded show on Mike. YEAH NO SHIT! You be solved, so it should be really easy to attach a five minute video next to it. Yeah like when you just add that video at the front. Because even ea had like a whole spiel at the beginning of whatever as was a play player. Whatever the hell. Lease. Yeah, they talked about cove it. They talked about some harassment stuff. They talked about racism like they brought all of it. Real quick like five minutes at the beginning, and then they moved into the flood. They had like an hour long pre show like you could've at some point in that. Our quickly recorded a message and then. Exported that video and put it in the stream after it, and then put the actual forward, but. They didn't do that. When tells me again? All they want to do is to bury the lead. They want to keep it quiet so. It want to assure the CEO. Just recorded on his laptop from home at like, everybody would have been fine with that as being a pre recorded thing or a recording to add to the prerecorded video, and it's really disappointing to because I'm at a point that. I mean it won't be that hard if I wait till next year, but I'm kind of the point that I don't want to buy a single game by them right now, because they they aren't showing that. Even give a shit about these allegations. Nobody's been fired. They all step down. Yeah. That COULDA option. Could have the option that they were like. It was a refinement like they're like. We want but if that's the case. Making a comment, but they haven't. So. That's the part where I get my guard up. Being like no I think they want this to go away. Yeah. It should be that simple to say we don't. We don't. Agree? We don't support this kind of action. These people have been removed from our company and we in the future. We're GONNA. Make sure that if anybody does is again, they'll be swiftly out of just like the others, and they haven't said a fucking word about it. Now me the best. Of. You just you're just. You got caught and you don't know what to fucking do because you're just like I have a feeling that somewhere down the road we're going to see uses been up to, and we're going to hear about that. That's my suspicion at this point. Maybe that's why. because. It's very strange.

Over digital was fine. It's also weird shit like they always are. Yeah. The. These guys are like you like press conferences right? Okay, we're going to take that and turn it into like the weirdest fucking thing even animate couldn't try to do. It's very self aware to like when they go on a rant that it's like these conferences aren't even about buying and playing video games. They're just about hype about games that are going to possibly may be come out one day. Let's just release all these games, but then cancelled them right before they come because no one gives a fuck it's. Like? Yeah there's. Games that are like essentially just rumored to exist, but never actually come out now they do. They do a lot of fourth wall breaking within the actual like it's not just guys standing on stage. It's literally like almost like a motion picture that happened to have game trailers in it. It's almost like a movie of a press conference, and it gets fairly fucking weird like it suddenly gets sci-fi Shit. There's like people dying horribly like it gets real fucking silly. Like, they just go. You know what we can't just be guy that has like ten different bigwigs from the company that you've never heard of talk about the game that they might be a part of and then show you a nice fancy car on the stage. For no reason this time it's just like how about we just talk about a couple of games and then just really creepy the fuck. Yeah it's Kinda creepy. Like vish all the girl who hosts it I.
