you pop you don’t stop and now you got the freaking most spot-on gremlin electric sound i’ve ever heard asmr craig is here today to tell you all the news needs in the camera number one on the upper report are we getting the dead space remake next year that’s what might be happening according to one jeffy grub grub that’s right jeff grubb over at gamesb we joined his report in progress electronic arts is is really making that dead space game that fans wanted the game is going to be simply the game is going simply by the name dead space and as i previously reported that represents developer ea motive’s desire to remake the original game while also rebooting the franchise as a whole and fans should get the chance to experience the results of those efforts when dead space launches in fall of 2022 according to sources familiar with development this means that the game is little a little bit more than a year away of course in the tumultuous games industry target dates slip slip frequently and it’s i’m telling you what is sweaty the coffee is sweaty and it’s making me sweaty and loose over here all right i got all the little nuts and bolts on greg they’re vibrating it’s the end of the week i’m exhausted and i’m just doing the best i can to keep it on the tracks here but i’m having fun choo choo of course in the tumultuous games industry target dates slip frequently and it’s important to note that ea has not yet publicly stated or confirmed release timing for dead space i jeffy grub grub himself reached out to ea for comment and a spokesperson for the publisher provided the following statement quote we haven’t shared a release date for the game but we don’t have i’m sorry and we don’t have any comment based on the current rumor and speculation but we’re glad people are excited for the game end quote but internally ea is expected to launch dead space during its fiscal year 2023 so we won’t see that in its fiscal guidance until early next year but by then we will likely have heard more from the publisher about this game the company does have some intentions to reveal more of dead space before the end of 2021 that could take the form of a trailer dropping on the company’s youtube page or maybe it’s another candidate to show up at the game awards in december at that time it’s possible ea could give a release date although that might go against current trends many publishers are keeping final release dates quiet until much later in the marketing cycle this is due to the pandemic making it making a tough business even more uncertain but it’s also because publishers are seeing little downside as gamers continue to set games continue to sell even if customers have to wait to the last minute for release species specifics for example nintendo didn’t announce mario golf super rush until february and sold more than 1.3 million copies in five days in june timothy robert gettys are we going to get dead space in fall 2022 i mean i definitely think that’s the plan given the state of the world and how we haven’t gotten many video games uh to hit the dates that the that they’re given or planned for it probably not but if things get a little bit better and a little bit more under control i do think dead space this type of remake is the type of game that i would expect on the earlier side than the later side if the world situation wasn’t uh a factor but it is so i think that i’d expect this to be targeted for september 2023 and then you get that halloween time yeah and then uh maybe it gets pushed back to november but if it gets further than that i think they would just punt it to 2024. i am with you of course but i’ll go one step further and tell you this is greg miller’s lock of the week all right there’s not a chance in hell dead space launches in fall 2022. yeah i i i i’m right there my date’s back one year i i misspoke i don’t know what [ __ ] year it is i meant 2022 23. not 23 and 24. i understand uh there’s not a chance and i think i’m right there with i think this is very much the horizon conversation where i think they have every intention every intention of trying to launch this in fall 2022 that’s the guideline the road map they’re on yada yada i just don’t i think as we’ve seen with just about every game especially games that don’t have a release date or a window they didn’t they specifically didn’t put that into their announcement trailer ea play right i just don’t think you’ll ever see that actually materialize in fall 2022. i’d love to be wrong i love dead space as you know i am the halloween king i’d love a good spooky game to play come that time but yeah now so here’s the thing like i am not a scientist and i’m not a game developer those two things are two of the strongest facts about myself okay um but i am a consumer of this stuff and i pay attention to when things are announced and when things are released etc etc and when you look at things like the resident evil 2 remake and three remake that are very similar to this dead space project right in idea and concept in fact it seems like from everything we know the resident evil is a lot more even than dead space because it was kind of changing even the style of game uh whereas this looks like it is more of a close to one-to-one uh dead space remake with minor changes like different types of changes that aren’t changing the genre right of gameplay um and we got re2 announced it at e3 and it came out six months later re3 even less of a lead time where it’s like it was game awards or not game more to the december ps state of play and then it was like four months later the game came out so it’s like with this i can see that being a similar situation where it’s like they didn’t put a date but internally and just where the project is actually at i can imagine that this will be a lot further faster than other other game titles okay i want a belief i like that idea you know what i mean i mean especially you just got to think about it like a lot of it’s already done story’s done right like the the there’s a lot of i don’t know if they’re using the same audio or going back and and changing some stuff but there’s a basis but there’s a basis right it’s like changing is different than having to create from scratch so it’s like there’s a lot of uh kind of one-ups that they have going into this and a really cool thing that also was coming out today that i think has been uh in a blog post for a while but people just talk about it today is that the dead space remake will be a fully unbroken experience like god of war so it’s all gonna be one shot which is [ __ ] awesome and so perfect for dead space like those are the type of enhancements that i think are really going to make this a worthwhile remake and and something special that stands on its own in 2022 or three or whatever it comes out and being something that like we’re gonna look at like thank god this happened even though dead space isn’t that old of a game you know um i think it’s really going to recontextualize the classic so this type of thing like that that dead space has always been cinematic to give it that extra level i think is going to go a long way and i also think that while that unbroken experience adds a lot of technical issues it also kind of limits you a little bit for what you can do and how crazy you can get so i think that if they have a strong direction for that stuff and a good team working on it which i have full faith that they do knowing uh what motive has done in the past i have faith that this might be a simpler production than what it could have been if it was just a full-on all-new dead space game sure that that works and i think you know i i’m you know infinitely excited for this number one i mean for two reasons number one i’m a huge dead space fan so getting to go back for this is great and then on top of that the fact that calistaco proto or the callisto callistico calistaco whatever the callisto protocol is happening over there from striking distance right which is glenn who is one of the people who made dead space so it’s like we’re getting a and also a modern thing so even if dead space plays it smaller tighter which you would talk about the handheld camera right that is what i would think they’re leaning into i think what it would be too if you’ve never played right it is scary it is you know you’re just trying to get through that door but there’s a body on the ground and is that a necromorph and you don’t know if you brought that experience you grind that experience especially with that camera you wait that experience where your boots on the ground and you are tight it feels survival horror but then learns from all the things we’ve learned about survival horror and action games since then and also the you know the pros and cons of dead space 1 to dead space 2 dead space 2 to dead space 3 and try to apply all that let alone modern 2021 game design to it i think it could be something really special even though it is going to be a remake of something before and then to see what what the callisto protocol uh happens from there i can’t wait for that but question for you on top of that tim is the master of hype you know is snowbike mike but you love critiquing the hype critiquing the shows the game awards in december do you think this is a trailer there i honestly i i hate this place that we’re in for the last two years for so many reasons but when talking about what you just asked me i i hate that it’s almost silly to make predictions this far out because so many things can change and it’s like what i expect now is like i will i might not even expect a month from now right having said that yeah why not like game awards have has only gotten bigger and bigger and bigger in terms of like the pull that it has and the understanding it has in the industry as being this important event that everybody can come to and like have some bangers and they’re in in a lot of ways i kind of feel like the game awards are becoming the thing that developers and publishers are looking at like they used to look at e3 when there’s that competition level and i don’t think we oh exactly i don’t think we’ve hit critical mass on that yet but with how much of a mess e3 summer game fest like all of the the stuff has been of like you know there’s been some fine tuning and like trying to get back on course but i think game wards has stayed on a course over the last 10 years of just getting better and better and better even when there’s been setbacks and and you know things in the way like the pandemic uh but i can imagine that the first game awards back live and audience like jeff’s gonna want to go as hard as possible and i think the publishers are going to want to go as hard as possible and if the game awards are in person at the end of the year and they get to go as hard as they want to that means that the world is going to be in a better place than it was so hopefully that means games are in a better place makes sense to me number two let’s jump off of that where is the world are we in a better place we’ll go to number two pokemon go has responded to some angry fans this is jared moore over at ign.com niantic has issued a response to fans over complaints surrounding the company’s decision to reduce the in-game extended range feature for pokestop interactions in pokemon go the developer says it will form a committee consult with community members and deliver a further response by september fans have directed anger at niantic after it reverted pandemic related changes to the game most prominently the distance at which pokestops can be interacted with for a game that prides itself on its community-based gameplay and the size of its fan pace the community the company had been silent over the issue for some time leading to a widely shared open letter from players niantic has finally offered a response to the community which was published on the studio’s blog in the response niantic explained that its decision to revert the interaction distance from 80 meters back to 40 meters was made because it wants quote people to connect to real places in the real world and to visit uh places that are worth exploring in quote niantic then went on to say that it has heard the community loud and clear surrounding the changes to the pokestop gym interaction distance the studio acknowledged the concerns raised by the community before explaining what further action it would take the team said quote we are assembling an internal cross-functional team to develop proposals designed to preserve our mission of inspiring people to explore the world together while also addressing specific concerns that have been raised regarding the interaction distance end quote as part of the process niantic said quote we will also be reaching out to community leaders in the coming days to join us for this dialogue this will take place before the studio shares its findings by september 1. it is unclear at this stage what proposals could be implemented into the game or to what degree these will satisfy the community however fans of pokemon go will be hoping that community leaders uh concerns are listed er i’m sorry listen to an address sooner rather than later uh the increased interaction distance feature was introduced last year as a way to allow the community to keep playing pokemon go from the safety of their homes during cobid 19’s pandemic the in-game feature improved player safety and accessibility within the game and has been praised by the community and creators alike fans took uh fans of the title took to the social media at full force assassination to reconsider removing the feature from the game timothy that sucks way to look at this is like they’re trying to have the dialogue and trying to have the conversation we’ll see where this ends up like i i don’t think that there’s i think there’s a side that i side on of right and wrong when it comes to this but i don’t think it is that clear what’s the right and wrong for you well just in the sense of like there’s a big pandemic going on right now and it’s like we should not revert the things that are trying to prevent it like i in my opinion i think when it comes to pokemon go and i could be totally off on this but i don’t think that pokemon go itself is actually really causing that much risk to people with with the difference between the 40 meters and 80 meters but i do think it’s more of a message to the people like a message to the public of like hey we should take this a little more seriously and like i just think this might be a little bit premature to do this change for somebody that as somebody that doesn’t play this game doesn’t interact with it doesn’t seem like something that needed to be changed now like they could have just waited a little longer until things aren’t spiking left and right in different places and also i do need to give some context of where i’m coming from where i’m in san francisco and i feel safe being outside like i know how high the vaccination rates are in the city i know how uh much people respect the masks and stuff around here so it’s like i am definitely in a bubble of safety compared to pokemon go players and god knows where to niantic’s credit and one of the reasons i think this sucks is that this change of them you know okay we’re going back to what it was was made i want to say months ago theoretically maybe only was weeks ago but we reported on it in the show and at the time it made sense vaccinations were way up it seemed like we were turning the corner everything was going back to normal it was before we were talking about all these variants whether it be delta or lambda or whatever right and so i really feel like they made that announcement and said they were going to change this in the weeks ahead and then in those weeks the pandemic shifted and changed again and it kind of went back to a oh [ __ ] what are we doing how how comfortable is anyone doing certain activities and things right like for me personally right like in to removing pokemon go which i i occasionally turn on when i’ll be waiting for a cup of coffee or something i’ll turn it on and screw around or when we’re walking and jen’s dragging me in these hikes i’ll look for something new and i’ll send golf a gift he gets very excited [ __ ] caterpie yeah i’m never excited for the pokemon i’m more excited for the new pokestops when i when we’re when she’s hiking me somewhere new um however right like at that time it made sense for uh in my head i’m like oh of course turn this off yada yada and now here we are right and with all the different variants and my wife being pregnant and her immune system being all [ __ ] up right like i am i am back in lockdown personally where it’s like i am not going like you know you you know better than anybody say i’m like i’m not going suicide squad screener i’m like i’m not going like i’m not going to the movies right like i don’t know you know what i i we haven’t talked about it this is us discussing kind of funny on the air right like shang chi like i don’t know if i’m a part of that in review because i don’t know where we’ll be and what’s gonna be happening and what the latest will be and i can’t risk uh my wife and my unborn child so it’s like ghostbusters afterlife i don’t know where it’ll be in oct or november right like th and so i understand like again now that things have shifted back to like i don’t know i mean [ __ ] by the way i meant to put this in housekeeping i’m so sorry everybody go send jared petty love who guess what is vaccinated and has covered so like that’s where we’re at right now and i have multiple friends not local but uh around the country that are vaccinated and have coveted so it’s like cool like i with that mindset now i’m like niantic don’t be stupid dial it back and let it go and that’s what i think the normal i think that’s the easy fix here but i also get like this is the push and pull of it all right where it is hey niantic designed this game to be this to be wandering and to be walking and yada yada so when you make that announcement to go back i’m sure they celebrated like cool we’re getting back to our vision of pokemon go then the world changes but again to your point tim the world changes differently for everybody where it is this thing of like well yeah you know sf is pretty safe and is super safe and i’m well aware that it’s like very the the percentile chances of catching coven and being a breakthrough case in yada yada but it is still there it goes into it though i mean your wife is pregnant you have had cancer it’s like there’s there’s out layers to this [ __ ] right where it’s just like everybody has to make their own personal decision i think that it starts from a place of like there is no decision to make like you should be [ __ ] getting vaccinated we need to do this as a society that’s not a in my opinion that shouldn’t be a choice and i it is and that sucks that’s why we’re where we’re at right now but i think that beyond that it’s like we get to this point where it’s like cool then there are choices to be made uh based on who you are where you are and like how your own personal levels of safety and [ __ ] that at that point is not about every other the people around you it is just about the choices you are making if you’re vaccinated if you’re doing that right then it’s like then the levels of safety are going to be better for everybody across the freaking globe yeah so yeah everything sucks i feel for both niantic the player base and everything i’m with you that i think it’s pretty clear of what you do here you know i don’t know if you need to form a commission to do everything like cool the world’s still [ __ ] up we’ll go back to what it was during pandemic and where everybody was happy and you were still able to play the game you wanted to play and go take over a gym but that’s me and i’m not them and i understand it’s their game and their business so they can go through it and the community can have their say and everybody can figure it out together because i do think niantic is a company that again from the sidelines i’m not in there it does seem like a company that listens to its audience so i imagine they will end up lessening the restrictions into a way that people can still enjoy the game during these uncertain times and now speaking of in certain times uh ladies and gentlemen i would like to call this out of course uh you know alana khalif and i do a show called presence of mine with cloud9 and kaiser permanente and i steal these two paragraphs from them all the time if you’re age 12 or older and haven’t received a covet vaccination you can text your zip code to 438829 to find a free vaccine near you in many locations no appointment is needed and you can even get a free ride there and back with lyft and uber so everybody like i said number one get vaccinated number two go find jared petty on your social media of choice and tell him you love him give him a big old virtual hug as he struggles through covet but for now i’ll also tell you about number three on the roper report uh call of duty’s among us like mode uh this is austin gosselin over at polygon austin writes call of duty black ops cold war is getting an additional game mode for its new season uh the mode is called double agent and it’s based on some among us style deception as shown in the trailer at least on thursday double agent will feature 10 players who are each assigned a random role the most important players are the double agents who are tasked with either eliminating their fellow players or planting and detonating bombs across the map most players will play as operatives who all who have to discover the double agents and keep themselves alive finally there is the investigator who will get special clues to help them determine the double agents who can put out wanted orders on players they suspect have betrayed their allies the mode will feature a variety of extra features including weapons that players can collect throughout the early stages of the match and certain extra tools for the double agents to help give them a leg up uh on their agents or their targets my apologies uh the mode will also heavily use voice chat to help players identify who among them among them seems to be the most suspicious double agent will be part of call of duty uh black op cold war uh season five update which is set to release august 12th that sounds cool yeah i mean that sounds very cool it reminds me a lot of the the half-life mod gary’s mod that we played at achievement hunter back in the day yeah the actual trouble in something town something like that someone in the chat or you’re wrong you know what i’m talking about but that’s just super cool it’s kind of like combining that the werewolf game uh with chair first person shooter like with the popular uh community for multiplayer that sounds awesome troubling the chat cool yeah exactly uh but anyways very very cool stuff i love when uh games try to get creative with their with modes like this because they don’t always work but when they do kind of turns into something special and i think that you know among us is we see these trends right where it’s like cool battle royale like i don’t even need to go down the history of that we know where that ended up but like things like among us things like fall guys it’s like i i love when there’s these moments of like brilliance in video games because then it’s like cool five years from now what other games are gonna take those ideas and kind of add it to their repertoire and what they do and like that creates even new game experiences so cool stuff yeah i like to see games learning from each other uh and like you talked about with gary’s mod like we really enjoyed playing that but obviously to get this on a higher level out there to more people it’s cool idea but you might be saying at home call of duty why am i i’ve heard of call of duty recently right oh right activision blizzard sucks let’s give you some updates on that uh number four coke and state pharma are reassessing if they want to be part of overwatch league uh this is teddy meninbar over at washington post coca-cola and state farm are reassessing partnerships with activision blizzard’s overwatch league according to statements provided by both companies the news comes two weeks after the state of california california’s department of fair employment and housing sued the video game giant over allegations of widespread harassment and discrimination against female employees at the company activision blizzard runs the overwatch league and the call of duty league two esports ventures which organize comp competitions around those respective first-person shooter titles coca-cola and state farm are two of seven sponsors currently listed on the overwatch league website brand deals with big companies bleed into all parts of league of the league’s match day promotion uh production uh they are sponsored player rankings powered by amd uh ibm well placed red coca-cola cups next to commentators and quick rolling advertisements that run between the action in a match the partnerships are a key way for the league and activation blizzard to bring in revenue alongside broadcasting rights and franchise fees in two statements uh provided to the post thursday a spokesperson for state farm said the insurance provider is quote re-evaluating our limited marketing relationship with the overwatch league and the company has requested that no advertisements run during the matches this weekend state farm first became a sponsor of the overwatch league in 2019. a spokesperson for coca-cola said wednesday uh that the company is aware of the allegations surrounding activation blizzard and that they’ve been closely monitoring the situation we are working with our partners at blizzard as we take a step back for a moment to revisit future plans and programs the statement reads tim every time we talk about activation blizzard and this is something we talked about a lot lately and you can even drop ubisoft in there you can talk anytime a company uh does something shitty to its employees that make the games and the art you love it’s always gary with us saying we gotta hit him in the pocketbooks that’s the only way things will change and yada yada however i kind of feel when we talk about it all the time right that it goes you could go take it into unionization right of getting big groups together but it’s also that idea of if you as a gamer say you’re never going to get another activision blizzard game right that’s 60 70 out of their pocket that’s a drop in the bucket it reminds me so much of when we talk about like pollution and energy and water conservation right where it’s like the you know companies or not companies states towns will tell you okay well you know we’re we’re on this uh flex plan for power you know don’t water your grass on this day yada yada yada and we we do that as a conscious individual trying to make the world a better place but in reality it’s usually some [ __ ] corporation that’s doing all the polluting taking all the energy [ __ ] everything up for people and this is obviously painting with a broad brush but you understand what i’m driving at in my point right this is what i think is you know the quickest way from a to b if you want actual you know ramifications from the lawsuit and from the shitty uh [ __ ] actions being taken by leaders over at activision blizzard this is the way to hit them in the pocketbook is that the actual sponsors who are putting the millions of dollars into their pocket actually put fear into the stake shareholders hearts yeah i mean coca-cola that’s state farm like we’re talking about real real real sponsors with real money the consistent money partnerships like it’s it’s not just a sponsorship it’s a partnership right long term um that kind of the the league is entire entirely based on an understanding that is bringing in x amount of revenue because of these these partners so yeah this definitely is a way a way to hit them this is such a complicated conversation we’ve been having it we’re gonna continue to have it i think i’m more on in your boat than uh than some of the other takes i’ve heard because like i truly believe that like talking about it and having like making it this public deal is the thing that over time does actually create the most positive change and this is the type of things that that come from that um but yeah i this this is i don’t wanna say it’s crazy like this makes sense like this is how this happens when people uh do shitty things and then are called out and that is talked about and everyone’s like oh [ __ ] that shitty i don’t want to be associated with it yeah that’s how they need to be you shouldn’t want to be associated with shitty people in shitty situations and the conversation we’ve had you know about this ongoing uh always evolving of course and i’ve talked about it before like you know we’re always out here working with a net as we stumble through bigger issues and bigger ideas than anything else right there is this conversation gary and i have had and i’ve had a probably blessing on other shows right of like the fact that we the podcasters you’re listening to right now but you the audience who are listening are watching this as well right are the minority we talk about the mainstream right and how the stock price and all this other stuff like that’s another world we’re talking about the world of call of duty gamers who have no idea what’s actually happening in the video game industry because they just enjoy their game and more power to them you know what i mean i don’t i watch a lot of movies and i don’t necessarily know every movie i watched what the behind the scenes story and the drama was the director of the cass yada yada let alone the production company there’s this audience there that doesn’t know so you talk about this mainstream audience that doesn’t know what’s happening and also just the mainstream in general but you are seeing cracks i had a one of uh one of my cousins uh actually i guess cousin-in-law i don’t know you could call that if that’s a thing but my cousin-in-law uh texted me last night and was just like hey man good catching up your you know maternity photos are great also what is this thing gonna sink activision blizzard and i assume he knows that because he’s more interested in business and they’re finally seeing it reported on i don’t even know i was gonna say mad money but i don’t know if that’s still a [ __ ] stock show you know what i mean like in terms of like real news and like it’s breaking through to a an echelon in an audience that isn’t the same right like isn’t us talking about how [ __ ] up this is it is actually getting mainstream coverage and actually picking up traction there which again is stuff that leans on coca-cola which is liens on state farm which then leans on activision blizzard which then leans on the [ __ ] shareholders to be like get the [ __ ] out of here people who are garbage people yeah absolutely you know everyone needs to handle this differently but i think that as long as people are thinking about it and trying to do what their conscience tells them is the right step forward i think that that goes a long way personally i don’t think that boycotting the video games themselves is the right answer but if that’s what you think more power to you and i do think that that sends a message it’s a different message than i’m sending but it’s all working towards the the same place i think that we need to spend less time critiquing uh how the levels and the ways that others are supporting and just keep supporting and just supporting people supporting the way that they want to sure yeah i mean that was a big thing for me personally where uh before i caught this article today you know we talked about something i was like you know i’ve had this conversation i know you have on the air as well of like well what does kind of funny do about this you know what i mean like do we boy you say boycott the games which for the most part i think i guess andy and nick make it would make it i was going to say would be easy right if tomorrow i was like i’m never playing an activision blizzard game again ever like greg you don’t play any of those games like what does it matter to you right but it’s like you know oh do we not talk about in the air like do we not you know go to send people to preview events like how do you do that and like what i’ve talked about before is for me it’s about presenting the entire picture and talking about and doing it so what i’m driving at to get you back on track for games daily was even with the call of duty story i wanted to put in this which is not a news story but is in fact a required reading uh if you didn’t know uh obviously jason schreier continued great work over at bloomberg jason put up an article uh today titled uh blizzard turned game developers into rock stars misbehavior followed i’ll read you the first three graphs from this and ask you then to go to bloomberg and read the entire report because it is [ __ ] up of course one summer day in 2018 employees of the video game maker blizzard entertainment opened their email to find a brusque message from the chief executive officer mike mooreham it said the company parted ways with ben kilgore the chief technology officer and moreham’s heir apparent the email didn’t give a reason but employees immediately began to gossip kilgore presided over the most notorious group of sexist drinkers at the irvine california headquarters where sexism and drinking were rampant current and former employees said shortly afterward they got a they got a supposed explanation during a large staffing meter derrick ingalls uh now head of technology the technology department was asked why his former former boss had left ingalls told a brief story that concluded with a strange piece of advice quote don’t sleep with your assistant but if you’re going to sleep with your asses assistant don’t stop end quote five people who attended the meeting which hasn’t been previously reported recounted versions of that story in interviews with bloomberg also in the room that day was a representative from human resources who stood silently by they said ingalls comments led to a barrage of speculation surrounding kilgore’s departure that bloomberg has not been able to verify regardless a former blizzard assistant said this sort of locker room banter was sexist and damaging to the careers of assistants and other women at the company [ __ ] off and like jason’s amazing reporting goes on with this and all sorts of stories like this to really be like shine a spotlight on what a bunch of [ __ ] up people were working there and the atmosphere and the way it got off course and everything else goes there so again i think it’s not about turning a blind eye to any of this it’s about elevating these kind of stories and reminding that all of us that you know real people work on your games and sometimes the people who are making the art you love are in incredibly shitty situations but stick it out or get driven out because of course they’re in a shitty situation they shouldn’t have to put up with nobody should have to put up with stuff like this and that’s why we talk about it i’ve said this 15 000 times in the last couple weeks but i want to keep saying it because i think it’s important when you hear these things whether it’s this or the fulbright stuff or any of these type of shitty situations like don’t get defensive no matter who you are no matter what your background is just try to take it in and listen and don’t like immediately try to turn it into what you don’t agree with about the statement try to look and just be like cool be empathetic to their situation and just try to understand how to try to make things better and like that again is different for every single person but you all you can do is your best and i feel like the more we hear these stories as [ __ ] up as they are it’s going to make a better future because hopefully more and more and we’re seeing it more and more people are reflecting and trying to make better choices moving forward yeah 100 you nail it empathy that’s what we talk about all the time here is being empathetic to one another and putting yourself in somebody else’s shoes and again i think a lot of the reporting going on right now is excellent you can do just that you can sit there and be like how would you feel if you’re in that situation and then go from there for now let’s have a pallet cleanser everybody i’ll remind you of course about patreon.com kind of funny games it’s what keeps the

games that’s join honey dot com slash games one and we’re back number five on the wrong report pub g’s got a brand new name and it’s kind of dumb when you think about it we’re going to game spot where dare and our friend is reporting uh playerunknown’s battlegrounds officially has a new name which is still the same name but different as crafton has re-christened the battle royale game to pubg battlegrounds if you ignore the acronym title that the game has commonly been referred to since it launched several years ago that means that pubg battlegrounds essentially stands for player unknowns battlegrounds battlegrounds as spotted by pc gamer the name change took place in july with the player unknown portion of the title being essentially buried on steam in favor of the pub g title now playing pub g’s oh this is the video review i didn’t copy it uh quote crafton is actively expanding the pub g brand through a variety of new experiences set in its universe a pr representative said to pc gamer quote rebounding rebranding playerunknown’s battlegrounds to pub g battlegrounds is the first step in us realizing this vision additional titles in the franchise will carry the pub g name as you will see with our upcoming game pubg new state well tim this is totally one of those of like in the moment we’re all gonna eye roll and laugh at it and then it won’t make it nobody’s gonna care yeah absolutely it’s funny it’s silly but i also from a branding perspective i get it like totally branding is hard and sometimes you just need to okay look great i’m gonna take you back okay a little journey to eight years ago which is crazy eight years ago please i love going back 2013 all right grand theft auto 5 comes out we mean you little boys at ign yeah and and we’re learning we’re looking at all this seo we’re trying to figure out stuff and we learned that despite the game being called grand theft auto v roman numeral five it’s like no people are searching for grand theft auto 5 so or gta 5 and to be more specific so it’s like you need to kind of learn these things and at some point you got to just kind of be like all right this is what the people are saying so we just got to go with it so with this i bet you there’s a ton of people that would just call it like battlegrounds or pubg battlegrounds and like it’s dumb doesn’t make sense but it makes sense to the people and at the end of the day the people are what matter so it’s what we’re talking about right where it’s like yeah you’re talking about seo you’re talking about how people actually refer to call your game and do anything uh of course uh over at gamespot dinner goes on and i like i like his next paragraph the move kind of makes sense given how crafton is busy developing its own metaverse with pub g universe games such as the survival horror the callist the callisto protocol from the creators of dead space which is set several centuries in the future of that universe there’s also pub g new state a battle royale for mobile devices that is still scheduled to be released later this year which has a slightly futuristic setting as well on top of that castlevania’s adishankar is busy developing an animated series as well so it’s exactly what you’re talking about people already search for pubg so now that you’re searching for pub g you don’t want to lose pub g when you call i guess there’s a good chance callisto protocol is going to be called pub g close to a protocol right because when you search pub g you’re probably looking for this game but they want to show you their other games that they’re selling yep it’s about understanding it’s just about understanding what you are trying to get from your search so them especially having multiple games in the universe makes a ton of sense yeah 100 uh number six sad depending on who you are maybe the evil dead game has been delayed this is from the evil get evil dead game twitter uh the evil dead the game will be releasing in february 2022. uh hey groovy gamers we’re targeting a new release date to give the team some extra time for polish and to ensure this is the ultimate evil dead experience you’re waiting for this additional time is also allowing us to implement a single player option that will let you enjoy the game when you are without your co-op compadres there you go tim i know you’re big on evil dead you can’t wait for this right mm-hmm that’s not true at all but um i’m happy this game is happening and yeah delays are you it’s such a weird one don’t get me wrong everybody should enjoy whatever they enjoy i’m not trying to say that blah blah blah it’s just like evil dead huh okay i mean i mean that’s friday the 13th huh okay like your [ __ ] tongue all right same thing it’s like there has it has a very very very dedicated uh group of people predator same thing it’s like like yeah these they’re very big deals to big groups of people like groups of people that are big enough to make these video games to sustain the video games i don’t know we’ve seen that not really work out for friday the 13th or predator long term but sometimes long term isn’t necessary people can just have fun for a year you know what i mean like that’s i that needs to be okay i agree oh my god totally no not everything needs to be a 14 year experience or whatever right yeah uh in the chat over here it moved it’s gone but somebody was calling for evil dead in review tim when you cowered i mean at some point probably but come on the like is that worth it two of the movies are the same movie i’ve never seen any so i don’t know right one and two are like he’s like oh i have a bigger budget i can do this better i saw army of darkness i think i’ve seen funny movie i think i’ve seen evil dead clips and stuff you know for me it was sam raimi didn’t exist really until he made spider-man 1-2 which are great movies don’t listen to him don’t listen to the spider-man in review crew all right number three that’s not a great movie spider-man 3 is awful terrible horrible tim where the [ __ ] is the spider-man no way home trailer well i got you here i mean everything we just spent the last [ __ ] 40 minutes talking about it’s just like sony okay let me say this briefly spider-man no way home is the first movie to have the potential to cross a billion in a post-pandemic and air quotes world so or no i mean in a pandemic world so we’ve had the reality of fast nine coming out but that was way too early uh for the thing and it got messed up with like the international releases as well but spider-man what’s up kev i was saying fast nine so sad it made like not a lot of money you know well it’s making a lot of money i mean it’s breaking records for pandemic world but it’s not across a billion yeah it’s exact but like it should have in in any normal world it would have it would have it would have a hundred percent yeah but so this dep spider-man definitely uh would cross a billion in a normal world so i think that they’re both disney and sony are looking at this like yo we gotta we gotta be smart about it like i think we’ll uh we’ll know a lot more in the next month because of shanghi but i think more importantly venom on this on the sony side of if it keeps it september 23rd date um but we do also have uh what’s it called cinemacon cinemascape cinema some big e3 type event for uh movies and [ __ ] that’s coming in a couple weeks and sony has a three-hour presentation during it so what the [ __ ] else would they be talking about like they do have some things but like it all eyes are on that for if a trailer were to drop will we see that trailer or will it just be behind closed doors there we just get to read a synopsis that’s another question the chat’s confusing me do people like spider-man 3 are there this many more like everything greg here’s what we have weenie worm says spider-man 3 greater than far from home no but like they’re like they’re kids with bad taste you know what i mean like i’ll say it we need from whatever it’s got terrible taste yeah we need from worm okay there’s a lot of people saying no okay okay it’s a really bad movie and uh horrible movie but like here’s the thing there’s a lot of people that are like oh spider-man 2 is the best spider-man movie that’s ever happened and it’s just objectively not you know also true oh i’m with you kevin i’m saying that yeah no no i know that i like you i’m saying that’s not correct sure but it’s not the best there’s been so much better no no i’m i’m agreeing with you i’m agreeing no i know i know you’re agreeing with me and i’m agreeing with you if we could hug right now it’d be great god can you imagine how yeah should that be but you know what i mean [ __ ] sucks dude sucks one day you and i will be able to get within 40 meters of the same pokestop don’t worry number seven on the road for report and final this is just a tidbit for you streamline media group announced gaming industry veteran sean layton has joined its advisory board laden will advise the company on its overall global strategy for video games and enterprise if you’re like me and had no idea what streamlined media group is let me tell you one of the most frustrating press releases i’ve ever read in my [ __ ] life like it just uh usually at the end they’re like about streamlined media they didn’t do that so then i had to go to streamlight media’s
