Fresh "Ubisoft" from Kinda Funny Games Daily
"Z is doing it this way. That's Bullshit That's I. Don't think it's GONNA stop people. I don't think that's stopping anybody. Capcom makes a lot of money just remastered. So I'm sure like the idea of, let's say their lease God. I'm trying to think of an original Capcom title. Let's say at least a mess one, hundred world. or not say remastered for. Next, generation. But they sell it. As a thing, people are going to be pissed like, why are you doing that? Why don't you just update the Vision Irony have? But other hand. They might just go like because we want to make money, and then that's the end of the argument So who really knows how it's like when they say over GONNA sell ta five again. I assume. The Metro word that are going to sell j five like brand new seventy dollars copy again. How I don't think, they can do that without adding in additional content because the. GT. Is Free to play, which may which makes me go? What is the value in buying PTA five again for just a single player because it's not like. As a gay was a service, they could just keep going and just be like, Hey, we're selling new copies I. don't unless Sony specifically stops them. They could do whatever they want and I think he's going to stop them because what it it launched the Pierre's five. Period with footage and it's One of the best selling games of all time. I think you're right their check. However, it wants to do it. One of the reasons, one of the best gains will all time they'll is because. Online, right like that thing does so much for them, and so if you got a box a copy of GTE five for ps five analysts, xbox series Ex. I mean, either that thing is going to be I. Think Thirty dollars or I think it's going to be discounted. In in some way or there's something substantial, that's going to be included with it because like gt online at this point I would say is half the game. If not, I mean I, don't even say I would even say most of the game at this point. But, for for the purposes of this conversation, let's just say it's half the game and. that. That feels like such a weird thing. We saw. We saw it on shelves for seventy dollars. It's like wait. I bought the other version with more content for sixty bucks. What's what's going on here? I feel like that doesn't make sense. It's only weird until they do it looks that's the thing like, i. i. fully expect like like I said, every question that we have to be answered about five is answered by the fact that sold one, hundred, thirty, five, million copies, and the fact that they know, let's say, ten percent of them, thirteen point, five, million people are. Hella. Addicted to GTE. Five. Online. Just, selling that again and gave us thirteen five million. Put my million people to want to the new generation to play it. Is a a boon for them that they're not gonNA. Let go. Now that we're talking about this, I am very curious on what the audience thinks about this and I might I might like hit a barrier to make a tweet like make a poll on twitter to see like, Hey, do you think GPA five next year is GONNA cost full price because i. If I ask people right now, I. Don't think people would expect that. There's not really thinking. About. When we saw the reveal, right? Like mainly, I was excited that. Okay. Cool. Gt online free to play cool I can get a million dollars each each month by logging into today album PS, four S, we all do that. But. Yeah, like they've not really, they've not really set good expectation so far what that next game is going to be or not even the next, what detained five is going to be on next Gen. Five proper. Very curious. I'd be out for a poll like, I'm sure how seven is going to come to ps five like I'm nearly positive about that. Boy nabet money, they're going to try and resell it again. So, much that take an additional hit if it's GTE. Are. We're going to do it because he makes money. And then once more and more companies are doing that it's going to normalize I. Think Smart Delivery is a good idea, but I expect delivery without a mandate is going to be very hard to enforce. Look into our last story today story number five. Another one bites the dust at solve. This is from Frazier Brown and PC Gamer Tommy Francois, you'd be sauce vice president editorial, and creative services, and one of several employees increase accused of harassment and abuse has left. The publisher business insider read an email from CEO UCLA mall informing staff that Francois had left Ubisoft after being on administrative administrative leave for a month which. has since confirmed, the email didn't go into detail and be has not provided any more information about his exit. However, according to business insider quote sources with knowledge of the matter claimed Tommy Francois was fired. Following an investigation while he was talked has confirmed that France walls is no longer with the company. The the nature of his departure has not been stated by the company. So, this is another one, right like Tuesday's mean being you when we're on the show every time, another ubisoft employees bites the dust, this time, Tommy Francois, and so or wa. I got to say. I honestly like keep saying this list of falling dominoes. One good on Ubisoft for continuing past. Names to it doesn't matter like in matters a great deal but. Even game all hostile record reckon with us at some point in his. Comments on the financial call last week of. I'm always standing try principles doing the right thing. Ring. Hollow. Either one, he was completely unaware of this and as a terrible co or two, he knew about all this and didn't do anything because those are.

Assassin's Creed Female Leads Repeatedly Scrapped
"Jason up another exposed. About, miss allegations at Ubisoft while the details of the abuse are horrible. The parts of the article stuck outs me. We're how this culture was deeply affecting creative choices at the company, especially with assassin's creed teams. It feels very insidious. Seeing how women characters were continually diminished. It feels like Ubisoft Kinda played us all doing the bare minimum to include women while still holding to a culture that demeans them going forward. Is it going to be enough that you'd be soft? Is You just choice to play as a woman? After this story now after this story, they have to put a couple of female games out there and. I. I, kind of see the reason to an extent that these games cost a lot of money to make, and they don't want to take a risk, but that risk is dumb there. Is, no, risk milk peop- male players will play a game with female protagonists. Just no one cares that much people do care wouldn't by the game in the first place,
Prince of Persia VR Escape Room Announced by Ubisoft
"There is going to be a prince of Persia VR. Escape Rem I don't honestly fully understand how this works, but I got excited today. When I saw people sharing screen shots from a new game called Prince of Persia, the dagger of time, but was surprised that it was being shared so casually. You'd think new Prince of Persia with inspire more excitement, but then I looked into it a bit more and realized the screen shots were being shared for Prince of Persia VR escape Rome experience, which is very strange and interesting, but certainly less exciting than a new prince of Persia. Persia game proper I'm going to read the whole description for this thing from its website. It's a long, but I think it answers most of the questions I had about it Prince of Persia. The dagger of time is a virtual reality escape game set in the world of Prince of Persia which enables you to experience time control. You will be able to experience something impossible in real life to slow stop or even rewind time. Quick aside here I think we've done a pretty good job slowing down time to a stop over the course of the last few months so. You can't experience in real life. Continuing the dagger of time takes place in the setting of the Prince of Persia Trilogy Sands of Time Warrior. Within the two thrones, players are summoned to the fortress of time by Kyle, Lena to stop an evil magic. Kylian restores and gives the dagger of time to the players, so they can reach the hourglass shaped and use it to stop the Maj I, and then another quick aside. There's this'll asterisk there that I thought was funny. Because down at the bottom of the page, it says you do not need to have played any of the previous Prince of Persia Games in order to enjoy the dagger of time. I just thought it was funny that they felt like they had to specify that continuing again. The dagger of time is an experienced built around cooperation between players of all ages to achieve shared goal. Collaboration is essential. You cannot succeed without your teammates. Being able to listen and communicate effectively is absolutely key to success in the game to three or four players team up to find a way out of a re-imagined. re-imagined fortress of time to succeed, they need to work together and solve puzzles. The puzzles will require players to interact with objects in their vicinity climb and use certain powers such as the time control. I've got a link to the website and the show notes, and though it doesn't have a release, date does show all kinds of places all over the world where you will apparently be able to play it. During this age of pandemic I. Don't know when I would actually get a chance to check this thing out, but if it's near me. And if it's safe, I will seek it out I. Want to try it I do wish it was just a new Prince of Persia game, or at the very least a VR Prince of Persia game that I play on Oculus at home, but you know this is. Nothing I gas.

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.

"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.

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. Don't know if she's the CEO or something I think that's what they say she is. I don't know if she really is earth.

Gotten I've get eaten a Popeye's chicken sandwich and I'm very bummed out about because I know it's set the world on fire last year, and I really wanted to taste it and I. Just couldn't I couldn't get around to it. If you can give me that hookup. We can share somehow. Oh Boy, speaking of speaking of a notification impulse mates is barely speaking of that, but somehow reminded me of this Kevin do we figure out? What's up with the dry? Erase Markers that got delivered to me that I know our. I thought you had gotten the incorrect package. Is that something recently? The Amazon's been doing for me. Where like I order this Bluetooth headphone adapter, and instead I got a light bulb. So I was like. It must have been that, but then you said no, you got it. I got yeah I got my package.

"In terms of the duality of the DEB's that are working super hard people that you out that we know are awesome. The people that we know are out there busting their ass like these games made and and create awesome art. It fucking sucks that a few people can come through and take that for everybody, and so like that's the thing that always kind of have always tried to have in mind what comes to. Companies fucking up or higher ups, fucking up or Things being presented not the greatest light when it comes to big teams, big studios that there are so many people on the creative side. There's so many people that are artists who are coders who are writers who are in the Nitty Gritty of making these games that are involved with the ship, and so like that's of a thing. I'd like just threw out. there. in the conversation and let people Kinda with. Tim that was part a to the story number. One Part B. Actually comes in the form of the biggest headlines from you. We saw forward, and so I'm playing many from Joel. Scrambles at I had a great ride up. Man I'm Gonna I'm GonNa throughout you guys the biggest headlines from the show. So far cry. Six was finally officially revealed after several weeks earlier this week Ubisoft officially announced far cry for February. Twenty twenty one release the reveal showcase breaking bad and the main main laurie actor Giancarlo Esposito in a new role. Our also got the hyperscale which is out now. Currently playable on team. Here says the Open Beta will be probably familiar to those who played the previous technical technical tests, but as new weapon, a new hack ability, and includes a free thirty two year battle pass. Also, watchdogs legion, an assassin's creed are both coming this fall. Now earlier this year has hollow has been confirmed for November. Seventeenth release date on xbox one four. In Stadium. ubisoft reconfirmed that the upcoming adventure is also said for xbox series x and PS five, but does not offer release date for it on those systems off to also announced that watchdogs lesion will be, it will be released on October twenty, nine, th twenty twenty alongside the release date ubisoft showcase more of allegiance Gameplay, which allows players essentially recruit any MP and makes them a playable character. UBISOFT also now that there was another yousof forward coming later this year, and then to come full circle where we started this episode at and where where I wanted to get two. Big. Games are rateable for next Gen This is from ubisoft website where I think literally like support US OFF DOT com. Where they re they right We've compiled some key information about how you can upgrade a digital or physical version of watchdogs, Legion as creed, Mahala and far cry six from PS, four to be playable on PS five when upgrading games from PS four to ps five playstation, four copies of the game, digital or fiscal will provide access to the corresponding playstation, five version, and and no additional cost to you and I know they get into a little bit more detail in the actual site which I'm pulling up here. But Tim. You're about to go down a whole rabbit whole talking about this. Do you want to continue or do you remember where you wanted to continue from yeah? But. The thing of note that I wanted to talk about here because you know as we've been going through all this with all the smart delivery talk and all of the the playstation side of analogy, looking at the third parties in the kind of how they're handling it similarly differently This is kind of the most concrete answer we've got about the. The playstation process that I've seen at least and looking at this. The important thing to note is if upgrading your game using physical game disc, the disc must be kept inserted in the playstation. Five district play upgrading a physical version of the game from PS. Four to five will not be possible if you have the digital version of the next generation console. Oh Yeah, okay. That makes sense that makes this is why we're going back to the original conversation. We're having Kevin about digital version. What like what that means for the future? Are we ready for that? We prepared for that and like I gotta say this is a Bummer to me like this. Is something going into Nexgen? The most exciting thing for me is not the graphics retracing pretty dope, but it's not the graphics it's. It's not the kind of like the promise of bigger. Expanded all this stuff low times. That normally would get me excited from gender. Gen- What I'm most excited about is the ecosystems in the convenience of all the things that have been just annoying for the last couple. Generations finally get an iron out the point that they're just like video games. Just work the way that you want them to work. There's always the thing you get caught. Caught up where you're just like why this should work this way, why doesn't it things like Cross Cross Progression cross? Play all this stuff. It's like why can't I and now next Gen's promised to me? Is You can't. It's not going to be a pain? The ASS and I still don't understand if you buy whether it's digital or physical. If physical I guess, let's start there. Should be some unlock code that just gives you the game digitally. Why not! and. This generation like why is that not the case? It's weird like I. Think about it on the Nintendo side where I'm like cool I buy a bunch of games digitally am I had them on my switch I have a smash brothers, my copy of national to me because I wanted a physical about physically. Always need the cart even though I bought it. And even download all the digital games I can if I buy game digitally. All deleted and then re download it whenever the fuck I want. So, it's not like there's just like a limited amount of downloads or whatever it's. It's their right why I download smash brothers that I bought that clearly own. I mean this is kind of what so this is actually kind of the xbox, one dilemma right where toward the launch of the xbox one. This worse actually going to work his keys where you wouldn't be able to share your games with friends, because that that disk would have been tied to your council in some sort of way and I. Think for the way that that you want things to be done we have to be. We'll be living in that alternate future. Where xbox one was super successful if people didn't have a problem with it. And I think that. I think it's a fascinating case because I wonder what? At this point in two thousand twenty. If we were to do a poll, how out as far as people being because for things to work the way you want them to work I think he would have to be a key sort of situation because like. If. If a fiscal version of a game, then essentially unlocked the digital like I. Guess a digital download or digital edition of that game. then. You wouldn't be able to share your disc around. Because then people would just have unlimited versions of that game essentially right? Yeah, exactly, but this out fire eight in the chats is Tim. It makes no sense when you pop the disk in. It still has to download the PS fibers in the place, so that's. Why would a digital version I can't unlock the PS five digital version, but my thing is if you bought it on, ps. Four physically that means you have a PS four visit. With the disk drive so then, why can't I just put it into the PS four?.

EA Access Is Coming To Steam
"A access is coming com to steam, and I think this is really big I think seeing more of this kind of thing. In the P. C. space is interesting, and I think a testament to speaking of The weekend confirmed as the story then was always like Pc. Gaming is dying right like. More wrong. Exactly exactly. And I think this is interesting and I think ea doing it via steam is interesting as well versus Ubisoft like you play, plus or whatever at there's is called its own service that you subscribe to and are certainly other subscription services on P. C., but this feels like a big deal to me. Especially considering year has origin, and they had their own thing right, so they're kind of already had their own thing on. Bringing it to steam feels it feels big I. IT feels big. I agree. I think it is big I. Think it also I wonder, and I would throw it out to both of you for your opinions I wonder if this is a harbinger of things to come in that the sort of consolidation of all these different disparate services on you might be happening. We might be seeing the first domino of what will be like in who an Ubisoft you play on steam or on the EPA game store where instead of having all these different launchers all these different Places that your video games can live. They can all live in on steam, but then you can have these different services that are subsets of steam. That you pay for and give you access to early things. Give you free games. I think that's a cleaner more convenient way for me. From my perspective as a consumer, it seems cleaner and more convenient, but I wonder what you guys think this. What's your take on this? So so basically? What you're saying Jeff is that you think steam is going to be the smart TV of. Gaming well, maybe maybe I mean. If only we could have one subscription that we all these different services in the room something like Cable Don. so I think what this. What this really says to me with the screens to me more than anything else is that anthem destroyed their PC. Off. Because because, so you know. I mean they were. They were full speed ahead. Two three two and a half years ago with origin access and and they were really really pushing it, and in fact had created a premium model of their origin origin service, e- play, or at least it announced it at ea play twenty eighteen. I think was. Able to correct tube. But you know, and since you know at that at that EA, play the big game, the big triple a tidal, the thing that if you are there at that at that particular event that I you know I think it was at the podium where I was. The one thing that everybody wanted to see was anthem, and you had it behind closed doors. They invested a lot of money. In in that game and you know we all know what happened with it and and a lot of what they were doing and what they were building. was. Hinged upon the success of this game, and it didn't work, and now with the what they're finding is people have? Towards the service because they're not gaining anything from it.
New Rainbow Six Content Coming Out
"They also announced the UBISOFT team announce that there's new rainbow six content coming so I got the press release that I have here. I'm not GonNa read this whole thing. But essentially it's the second season for twenty twenty of siege for year five. That's your five that we're in now. It's wild I think it's the game is just better. Operation Steel wave is what it's called an introduces two new operators ace and Maluzi new attacker and a defender from Norway and South Africa in addition to an entirely reworked house map and a slew of gameplay changes. We won't go too deep into the weeds here except to say that they're looking for from factions. That I'm not too familiar with yeah. They're they're unfamiliar for shore. Ace looks like it. Uses the attacker from looks like a rescue unit of some type and then Melissa the defender has very interesting character design with her braids but aside from that. They're they're not very familiar at all like they don't clearly belong to any of the factions that we've seen yet do you thank her. Braid design is a South African thing. It's not a felony design It I mean it looks like it's too thick it like it. Looks like hair on top of hair so I I would imagine that it was just something that they didn't enemy urged didn't dumb draft out natively like it's something put on top of an existing players show. Now that I see it up close it does look like a wig. Looks LIKE CORN? Row Wig omos. Yeah it's I mean. They tried how how someone is is literally amazing air every time. How do you feel about this choice? Are You mad about it or you? Like I'll take the representation. Oh Immune it's always a mixed bag with hair and in representation for black women specifically but I mean they. They gave it a go and other other than our hair. She looks cool It's a very interesting gadget. That she has so I give them pass on this one. I have a lot of love remo sick. So they'll get the forgiveness this time. What's her gadget? I haven't looked at this. Just pull up the video so that Steiner and I can take a look. Yeah some operator. Gameplay yes so for from Lucy the defender Gadget is a banshee. Sonic defense and it looks a lot like diggers what I would. I forget what it's called. Whatever the anti-grenade where you can put it on walls or surfaces and it emits a pulse. Sonically that will slow and disoriented people as they approach it and from what I can read here you actually have to disable it by hitting it or by hitting it with something very very close range so it seems pretty decent on slowing down and that in combination with the new proximity alarm which is a sticky grenade that you could probably put on ceiling. This could be a real problem for for really aggressive attackers. I like that. They're putting in some of these defenses for aggressive attackers. Because I think that it kind of changes up the dynamic even though I think we all agree that being the defending team always feels inherently easier than mainly attacking team. Which is why we got the really aggressive defender in the last round. The guy whose name I can't remember. But he can like jump up level or ix or x Ten. But if you guys aren't playing rainbow six or you've never played Rambo six. Now's a great time to jump in. There's so much happening in the game. The Operation Steel. When does that do have a date? There did I just put the Dayton when it goes live Live delays date. I see all the notes here on the video. They announced this week in the description box. I could also pull up the press release again. Sorry everybody listening hoops. Nope it's not in the description back dealer so little halloween or no. Y'All know say not seen either. Maybe there's no maybe in the future this will be in the game happening soon happening after this show airs. We're not we're not giving area take we're just gonNA keep you guessing. Yes yes we will be no but this really really
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World video game re-release teased
"Scott Pilgrim video game might be making a return. There was a lot of Scott Pilgrim. Talk on the Internet yesterday as the director of the film Edgar Right and the cast watched the movie insured commentary on twitter which is Great. Because it's a great movie and Edgar. Wright is one of my favorite directors but in terms of video games. There was another little interesting tease Bryan. Lee o'malley the author of the Scott Pilgrim Comic Book that inspired the film tweeted. Bring back the Scott Pilgrim game. Hashtag bring back the Scott Pilgrim game. Hashtag watch with the academy. Which is a necessary tweet to share because the game was delisted a few years after its release it was delisted in two thousand fourteen. As far as I know it's not a game that can be purchased on any of its original platforms and it has never been entirely clear why the game was delisted but it likely had something to do with rights debates as you know it is a licensed game after all in response to o'malley's tweet the official UBISOFT. Twitter account responded with a thoughtful face emoji which many are reading into Ubisoft considering bringing the game back online the game was developed and published by Ubisoft. So if anyone was gonna be able to bring it back it would be them. I actually reviewed that game back in my pre game informer freelance days and here is my potentially controversial opinion. The game soundtrack which was created by chip tune ban on Gucci is much better than the actual game. The music is absolutely fantastic. The Art Style and animation is good but the game itself I just. I didn't think it was Super Fun to play. Now that being said I would still very much like to see that game comeback to life. It's always a bummer. When any game gets delisted in anything we can do to help elevate. Scott Pilgrim is a thing that comics are in. The movie is fantastic. So more Scott Pilgrim in the world is a good

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla trailer shows off viking battles
"UBISOFT UNVEILS. Assassin's creed Valhalla. Yesterday ubisoft teased the next assassin's creed with a long stream from digital artist boss logic drawing what will undoubtedly be the games cover art in the stream ended with the reveal of the Games title. Assassin's creed Valhalla. And a promise that a cinematic trailer would premiere the following morning which it did the trailer follows. What appears to be a Viking leader doing various Viking. Things like smearing blood on his face sparing the lives of women children and playing with his kids while a narration. Voiceover says they are heartless godless barbarians. They murder and kill blindly. They scar the land of England lands. They will never defend never love. The time has come to speak to them. In a language they will understand and it is revealed that the narrator is king writing out a declaration of war against the Vikings from there. The trailer shows Vikings storming a beach and accepting a volley of flaming arrows as they enter into a large scale war with England the description for the game reveals that the Viking leader we have been watching his Ivar and we see him fighting and slaying and he throws his acts at some enemies but it does not return to his hand automatically which is disappointing and then a big scary extra tall night enters the fray at this point four sees a hooded man appear briefly next to a leafless tree. I for a moment thought maybe it was an assassin or the ghost of an assassin. But then I've or yells before getting totally walloped by the big night who will definitely have an excessive amount of HP when you actually fight him in the game. When all hope seems lost and Mr Big night with big strength and defense stats has his sword against ivars neck. I've or kills him with a wrist blade but the blade actually on the outside of the wrist as opposed to the inside game is coming holiday. Twenty twenty pending any delays related

Why 'The Last of Us - Part 2' Delay Doesn't Worry Us
"We are of course meeting to talk about the fact that the last of us are too has been delayed it got a February twenty twenty release date just a month ago I think literally a month days we're recording I was at the preview event for the game and then they announced the release date on September Twenty Six for a February twenty twenty release now if confirmed this is actually going to be released on May twenty ninth twenty twenty Neil Druckman wrote a letter that I just I'm going to read briefly on the playstation blog he wrote I mentioned the release date change I know it was just about a month ago when we had our big blow out for the game leading media play over two hours of it along with debut in our new story trailer and revealing the release date the positive response we saw from our community was overwhelming you can feel the energy among the team members after working on something for so many years it's invigorating to get a glimpse of validation for all the hard work however it was during the last few weeks as we were closing out sections of the game that we realized we simply didn't have enough time to bring the entire game up to a level of Polish we would call naughty dog already at this point we face we were faced with two options compromise parts of the game or get more time with the ladder and this new release date allows us to finish everything to our level of satisfaction while also adducing stress on the team while we're relieved that we won't have to compromise on our vision were disappointed that we weren't able to avoid this exact situation we wish we could have foreseen the amount of Polish we needed but the size and scope of the game got the better of us we hate disappointing our fans and for that we're sorry we hope you understand that this additional time insurance that the US partout lives up to our collective ambition as well as our at the highest levels of quality we know the extra few months will add to what may already be an excruciating wait for all of us we are grateful for your patience and continue support come next May he will finally rejoin Elian the last of us are to Neil so at that statement I wanted to of course up twelve U. and ask how you feel about this delay did WANNA point out one thing for me that's really great about the statement is during the fact that this is both to polish the game to make sure lives up to quality but also to reduce stress on the team right yeah that's I think that like sore healthy that sentence was included and that where seeing that from this caliber of a studio are where people are actually going to turn around and pay attention it's super important to avoid crunch with you know where you can and and I just think it's that was the best sentence and that whole statement I also think that this is a pretty like part of the coast delay I'm not worried about all I think it sounds like it's going to be for the game it's going to be best for the team it's healthy delay there's a difference between the healthy delay and then a series of unhealthy delays a lot of people ooh this is a bit worrying and it's like no no no this is completely fine this is not a duke nukem forever scenario right this is a small delay in order to polish the game rather than a series of studio mishaps and disastrous comical area areas which was the story of this could be Duke nukem forever scenario if this continues to happen and for the next decade yeah hope they're adding a mechanic where you can pick up your own feces yeah that was I think one of the defining things that have been missing naughty dog games no like like you said I think the the conversation it's happened around crunch over the last few years has been a lot more significant than I think most people give it credit for I think the average Gamer sort of looked at that and like well this doesn't affect me everybody has a hard job and it's like you're right you do and that should be addressed at your place of work as well if there was an industries dedicated to covering what you do for a living hopefully those issues would come up quicker but the fact that this conversations come up so often and it came up with red dead it came up with I mean even since the start of this gene ration- That game rise was one of the first things I remember seeing an xbox with the studio tweeted out we've we've ordered over four hundred thousand pizzas for everybody I eat late when they're working on our game and everyone was like that's not cute that's bad like you should scope your project better so it doesn't happen like that So if this means that those the people working in this game can go home and see their families and husbands and wives and kids and pets great like this means that this game is a catastrophic I sir I doubt it so I think this is definitely a positive thing the interesting part of this is that this means that Sony doesn't have a significant Q. One game period the First Party game that we know about so they not first party they do I we were talking about this off air and then I remember it because I just looked up a calendar they do have a much smaller release in the audience reach Marvel's Iron Vr oh which was really coming out within a week of the last part to yes obviously having a big flashy marvel game for your Vr headset that will hopefully sell more during black Friday is not a bad thing to have but I in terms of the traditional release late that we'd expect collages in the First Party right yeah we are missing that especially for something that is you know would essentially be a core ps four game yeah something that is for part of Yes white proxy of a of a four hundred three hundred dollars hat yeah I enjoy it it's still a big if assigning next year yeah I mean those two games and then ghosts and then I five and that's all we know about so far who knows what else has come it's really exciting you played the last speech to you played a couple of hours of it was there did you walk away from it being like this this game is really missing quality or Polish Elliott couldn't pick up any of the dogs poops really bummed about that Tina wouldn't let me publish that exposed to clean the yard that's terrible I do you know that that was from the dogs you're right it's a pretty tough world out there I know I mean obviously that I don't want to know what a clicker poop looks like the the obviously that was meant to be a slice of the game that they polished up for us to place the but even with that in regard it felt pretty well polished like if I was playing that on release of a game I really wouldn't have batted I ran really well all the nation looked pretty fluid a there was nothing really that gave me the sense of Oh this is pretty far back in development but of course that is a small slice of the game and maybe the speaks to me spoke to Neil Druckman at that time and he was like what you've seen as such a small bit of the game maybe that's really true yeah I think it's also with mentioning that in our of all major studios naughty dog in my mind is kind of known for that extra level of Polish like I have never played a naughty dog game that that Janki or a bit like broken in one section it's always no matter what you think of the story of the pacing will the other things you might want to criticize it's always like they always at the utmost level of Polish and so I think for Neil in the came it's probably polishing stuff that we wouldn't even think of this as you know for them it's it's that sort of one thousand percent thing so yeah I highly doubt that this is a big kind of overhaul but they need to do it's going to be just it's just about cleaning it up a little around the edges I wonder if this is I mean obviously leading stresses huge it's great that they're moving away from crunch for that and giving it the Polish it needs but also kind of getting out of the way of anything else that's happening in that era we we've got a pretty loaded front half of next year so yeah I've brought up the list right now of what we know and just to quickly go through stuff that playstation would have January we'll have Z. CACA rot February will include February's actually a little bit quieter let's see what else now arches watchdogs march is the so watchdogs got delayed this morning as well Oh did ask the interesting thing all the major twenty twenty February now quieter than we would have expected to still has ironman VR but gods and monsters which was releasing within a few days of the last of us is also delayed. Okay Yeah Ubisoft this morning also delayed Gaza monsters watchdogs Legion and was quarantined. Do we know anything that's coming out like early June Taylor I'm telling the mayor so may the only thing we know the latest the state for a major AAA release is marvel's vendors which will be two weeks before the last of us right now April basically the second quarter of the year is cyberpunk in April than Marvel's avengers in May and now the last part I mean this seems smart because you do get that you get the stuff that was sort of the holiday okay window that gets pushed and more and more seeing that kind of bleed over like we're talking about right now and then there's always the sort of the early early early fall late summer stuff but the first the first last of us was that was June was busy three yeah came out her kids are out of school shouldn't be playing the game because it's dark but you know it's a good time for kind of also just if you look at the calendar and you're like when is there going to be a lot of competition it's like you own the conversation doing it that we yeah well this is I think the naughty dogs one of the few studio that doesn't necessarily have to worry about the release because they're games sell tens of millions of units they're far and away from the best selling games on playstation and the PS four has a massive install base and we'll only have a big one after Christmas so I think that like this is their probably less concerned about playing keep away or having the dodge major releases the closest thing that I could see eating their lunches cyberpunk and they'll now be a month in like a week away from there they are I mean touch different games it's not like it's not like this any kind of danger of cannibalizing
What PS5 Launch Games We Could (and Hope to) See
"Right and if it's not most of the current library are you can play why would you want to upgrade unless it's your job to upgrade anyway moving on from his has created another one that I think we'll see across gen ecosystem with black ops five also the reports earlier this year that obviously the cycle wouldn't have a black ops next year but there were reports from Kentucky that essentially issues behind the scenes of call of duty have all is tracked to take over the project this is all alleged not convert by activision and their then putting the priority into making black ops five now black ops as a franchise is is on Google Seo trance-like as big as call of duty like people associate the two brands almost so I think having black ops at the beginning of a generation having blackout it became so much more popular than I think a lot of us were expecting at the launch of regeneration saying that ecosystem will be there for you on launch day makes a lot of sense called duty has been there for a lot of generations with xbox one and ps four I think it was that funny thing ghosts was a launch title and do the comparisons where like in the three sixty version and it's too like laundry machines in a room and then the next Gen version it's like a four all day visual changes in so called is no stranger to straddling the generation line so expect that to happen this do you think I mean I don't Wanna get ahead of you on this list but I'm GonNa Police do you think anything that's going to launch on the playstation five we'll be Christian party maybe but not first party I think anything and it's really hard to say because like I do agree that this generation will be more incremental I think it will be a slower start for a lot of people buying onto this new gen I lot of this stuff has to be because the idea that you'd release a call of duty or as second any of the major sports games on only the next you just can't you lose so much money investors would be so angry the player would be frustrated like it just doesn't make sense to but at the same time people need those familiar experiences on their next Gen but that's that's exactly what my point is of like I I don't think you're right I don't think there's any financial case to be made essentially for anyone to skip ps four in twenty twenty great and you you you would not want to you wouldn't want to be that development that's working on a launch title for like playstation five only except for exclusives and that's the thing even then I think it would be a bit of a Sony all through the money at them yeah I it makes financial senses if it is Sony making it happened whether that's a first party game or them paying very heavily four and exclusive to only come to that system because they're going to need some of that to pull people over like you're saying they need those draws but it's definitely it's it's it's less enticing I think for developers to go from PS four five than it is to go from three to four and that's maybe what you're hinting at implying when when you say incremental it's like people can take that out of context and have it means something more harsh than you think but then the draw is not quite as much there for a lot of people when the PS four is still a wonderful system with a lot of lively games to play out the shift like a you know we look at the game service is sort of like a bad a bad thing but it's also stuff like like remix siege or or fortnight or d Sydney where they're just like yeah we put out put out a new thing in the box every two years but in the space between those things we like continue supporting it and you create a a player ecosystem and you create like I mean it's it's they're basically like little social networks where it's like you have people who come here all the time and they hang out and their friends and this is there this is their activity so like why would you want to throw that out every every time a new thing comes along and like with yeah with with seizures great example too because they've said that they're they're gonNA keep updating game for I think it's like ten years they first announced it they said it's just gonNA live they're not making each to they're just going to keep updating this game and linkages are really good candidate for something like ubisoft coming out and saying hey there's GONNA BE A. PS Five version of siege on launch day can have all these such and such and such improvements graphically obviously because you can't get too much because then you start having a competitive advantage and Yada Yada Yada but I think that's a very good candidate for something like that same with I think games fortnight and everything else like those have to be there if not launch pretty soon after yeah and we're moving on from that one quick one which I think we can all pretty much agree on all the sports games Madame Fiba NHL NBA will probably all be there one from our own Brian Altana who can't be with us because he's at a preview event which we will not speak of at the moment this came from him bloodborne remains third and his reasoning here of it the reason here's weirdly bloodborne is one of the only games like especially exclusive to not get a PS four pro upgrade the patch like it didn't get one in the same way other first party games did that allowed it to play more smoothly on a PS four pro have all the bells and whistles that are pro gives you compared to a launch ps four and it weird he is neglected in that sense even though that game is beloved and it's still talked about all the time and Sony is well aware of the Phantom of it so doing a bloodborne remastered one get you really big name that you know everyone loves give people a reason to pick it up again which is always the big reason when you do a re master and it's probably not as big a lift assay working on blood born to see I was GonNa say I'd love to see blood with the launch time do you think we will know realistically but you know that's different on my wishlist because blood born is one of those games where everyone's just like oh come on please give us a sequel game time like I just I want more I will be with that said I will be extremely satisfied with a with a bloodborne remastered and I would actually get a playstation five just yeah I know that's terrible it's not like sending in money or anything it's just like the idea of what that game will look like on playstation five makes me want to weep right so I'm definitely not the right person for that because I still haven't finished the regular version but if I'm like keeping I wonder what I'll finish that will I have children by then it was very possibly we'll avatar to be out who knows but like I'm sort of chipping away at didn't take my time with it and if they come out and they're like hey we're putting out a new better version I'll be like can I bring my save files like no I don't WanNa fight that horse again Brian's right in so far as like that is a real night Brian it's it wouldn't be I mean I say this with very little understanding of technology you save his dot p. s. five and it's good to go exactly it wouldn't it wouldn't be as massive just the graphics four J. Pig Lodge it wouldn't be as l. left as bloodborne to of course but it would be a really well regarded name I would love to say that as launch title be very interesting I think it makes sense and we'll get into more Sony exclusive stuff now as we go through the last one breathing I want to mention all kinds of sandwich this we know of your will they'll be supported on PS five they're not announcing plans for a PS VR to it looks like right now for launch asking those going to probably come a year or two in but I still think you need to give a reason for people want to play. PS Vietnam ps five and my two guesses would be an obviously they'd be crossed Astro about two and a new PS VR game the first by INSOMNIAC as party for PS VR in has a big history with vr some really great stuff that they've made for other VR headsets aster about is one of if not the most beloved ps VR game those are two really easy wins to say hey they're available to play on ps four but if you play them on ps five they have extra graphics X.

Obviously we don't have any confirmation from that so it's unclear now but it feels like ubisoft hasn't forgotten splinter cell exists even though we all just keep asking for it to just happen already but it seems like they're aiming to do something different with it at at this point. Would you wanna play spinners v._r. Would you want to be sam fisher choking a man in v._r. I mean we had such a track record for for jumping on new platforms and trying to tap into you know emerging technology and just being they're always they're always there with launch titles and they were there with <hes>. You know handful info things for p._s. V._r. It's curious to see them kind of not be noticeably present with oculus stuff but i feel like they could very easily be like we've we've retooled the splinter cell experience to make something that works in v._r. I don't think it would be at all what hardcore fans want it would be like the sort of it'd be like a theme park huck ride vision and and with that in mind i'd like to but i can't see myself being invested as if it was a flea blown console so game which is what i would want if it feels like the way the ubisoft model has evolved though i mean watchdogs basically took a little bit of splinter cell all into it and it's now also thing that unless it feels like ubisoft ken at its games a service elements in these more live online multiplayer elements. It doesn't really suit to their business. Model currently <hes> so like a pretty traditional splinter cell either with single player and co op doesn't feel like something made released today. Yeah i would like to say it though i'm moving on though oh for other games that could maybe becoming at some point soon in the future or years from now. <hes> testing apparently soon began on an unannounced resident evil game capcom has seemingly seemingly issued invites to u._s. Based members of its r._e._i. Ambassadors program to test a new game currently in development according to email via bio hayes the email said quote higher resin evil ambassadors today. We're reaching out to recruit potential testers from our loyal ari embassador community to a new game in early development <hes> that they listed some dates. It's and availability of cities that need to be in but there's not information much about what the game is but the requirement that anyone who is applying for this has is that they have to you of played a resident evil title in the past which would seem to imply a new resident evil..

"If you I think if you are doing any of it through steam at all, and they're getting a cut if you live from in game doing an anti going to go through steam because that's still goes through your steam payment stuff doesn't get the end of the day goes through the associated payment instrument with Ubisoft. Okay. Yeah. So that stuff that transaction probably still slow through Steve's theme of launched it that way because that content is probably managed through steam or my account booze. We'll both. So you're getting a I think what generally happens when you buy a Ubisoft game on steam is it is generating a product key than also gets tied to your you play account. So what Ubisoft would actually really love for you to do for that point on is to stop watching the game through steam and start launching it through your you play account purer and make your purchase there. Because then they're not cutting in steam on that stuff, which I assume you can do like, you said like you, and I don't think I have given them like payment of right once once you associate like a product key with your Ubisoft account that is available to you outside of steam, if you so choose so I wonder if that counts in the unit in the fifty million if it is like, you know, I bought seeds, but I've also given them an extra hundred dollars because I. So all does all that just says revenue, it doesn't okay? Distinguish between unit. Sales of games that The the case case. it actually set flat out says revenue includes game packages deal sea in game sales and community marketplace game. So I think that expands the market based. Yeah. Okay. I think that expands the net a bit in terms of who is benefit because there are smaller games that are just making a lot of money along tail on purchases in game. Yeah. But I'm trying to think of like, I bet rocket league is gotten up there. Yeah. Sure. Sure. I don't know. I have noted with it..

"You wrote about this leave where they had announced it was the smallest thing, and this is an unreleased game. We don't really know how it will play out, but what they announced was that for people, I think with the season pass, you get access to some activities early and that led to an understandable and. Predictable, you know, burst of outrage from the players saying, we'll wait what the fuck. So you know, you made this big deal out of saying Ubisoft for for context, soft had said for the division to all the contents going to be free. So post released expansions raids, you're gonna, everyone will get that. But if you buy this season, pass you early. So then there's this question because the division has a element to it. If I get access to that suffer late, does that how can that possibly mean that I won't get access to cool near new gear early that will give him an advantage during that week or even afterward whenever else's struggling to keep up with me and that led to anger that tied into the idea of misdirection because Ubisoft had said, you know, good guy Ubisoft we recognize that the paid expansions of the division split our fan base. We're doing free expansions for the new game and then only later said, but by the way you can pay for season pass that will give you access to these expansions ahead of the regular non paying extra populace. And then people were like, well, wait a minute, isn't some of the stuff going to be any of these expansions going to be effective, affect my ability, my prowess and PDP. Present me, people who pay and you have early access become the killer players in the game. And they said, actually, no, we can't really explain the details right now, but we're not gonna offer everything early if you pay. So then it's like, who's getting the bad deal here and you can. What what are you talking and then. And then also like, and this is slightly related to the idea of throttling progress. One of the valuable things invest in in division like in destiny Diablo is the amount of like wallet space or stash base or whatever. What is it called? Space space. Okay. Go to you guys for the destiny terms. And so the stash is what is called in deaths in division or your where you put all your weapons and your gear. And if you bought a super duper version of the game, a preordered it, you'd get extra stash base. So then the community managers on their livestream had to explain how well you don't really need to buy extra bit because don't worry, regular.
