7:06 PM LyricallyC yves
7:08 PM LyricallyC The post show could’ve been the apology
7:08 PM matthew wilson they should just say the true, most people havent heard about it, and we wont tel them
7:09 PM LyricallyC at this point, I given up on him
7:09 PM LyricallyC we’ll never get a sincere apology
7:12 PM LyricallyC At this point BY&G is pretty much in the air
7:12 PM addictedtochaos Yeah, it is a huge tone shift from BG&E 1.
7:13 PM matthew wilson its fair given thew context of everything else going on at ubisoft
7:14 PM LyricallyC oh no
7:14 PM matthew wilson use google translate, its shockingly not bad
7:15 PM LyricallyC The Libertarion I think is the name of the french paper. I think Eurogamer just released the story. It’s wild
7:16 PM Collin Asmus Hi Andrew, have you heard about Postal Redux coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 16th?
7:17 PM LyricallyC I don’t believe its fake news. Your game should’ve been out or shown more in magazines or E3 before this.
7:21 PM Collin Asmus I hate flies just like you dude.
7:22 PM addictedtochaos Any bugs get near me they must simply die.
7:24 PM LyricallyC Women are hard to animate but we’ll use a lot of them doing a lot of movement in the latest trailer of Watchdog Legion
7:24 PM LyricallyC yes
7:26 PM LyricallyC AC Liberation had a female on the box art
7:27 PM LyricallyC Isn’t the main series AC 1-3, Black Flag, Origins, and then Odysessy
7:29 PM addictedtochaos Not necessarily, stupid people can screw up the same thing all the time.
7:29 PM Collin Asmus I need to hit the hay. Have a great night Andrew
7:30 PM LyricallyC I thought those were side games
7:30 PM addictedtochaos Stupid people tend to fail upwards.
7:31 PM LyricallyC oh well, its Ubisoft and they’ll be a confusing mess for a long time
7:33 PM matthew wilson netflix has a policy if it doesnt bring in new viewers they cancal it
7:34 PM addictedtochaos Not enough people watched it or binged it.
7:34 PM matthew wilson normaly after 2 seasons
7:34 PM matthew wilson and covid
7:34 PM matthew wilson those people doing the pupets have to be close to each other
7:35 PM LyricallyC that was harsh for them to do that
7:36 PM Jared Knisely dont want to support disney tho
7:36 PM LyricallyC Could it be animated like Castlevania?
7:36 PM Jared Knisely or Netflix
7:37 PM matthew wilson and the third question did people watch it
7:38 PM matthew wilson and if people didnt, good reason to cancal
7:39 PM LyricallyC I agree with it being expensive
7:39 PM Jared Knisely Youtube or twitch is always option
7:40 PM matthew wilson 299= mainstream 499= core prity straight foword
7:42 PM Jared Knisely share option is not knew/the option is knew on the controller
7:43 PM LyricallyC You can do it on the One but it takes extra steps
7:43 PM Jared Knisely just easier
7:43 PM addictedtochaos Yeah, the Xbox One could already do this. The controller just didn’t have a dedicated button.
7:44 PM LyricallyC no its all good
7:44 PM Jared Knisely [message retracted]
7:44 PM LyricallyC A lot of us wasn’t fooled. We all screamed that PS4 had this
7:45 PM addictedtochaos So does Switch
7:46 PM matthew wilson good luck, cyberpunk is gujnna run like crap on xb1/ps4
7:46 PM LyricallyC I don’t know if they even have a Series X/S game ready to go just for the system
7:46 PM Jared Knisely pc is the new xbxo
7:46 PM Jared Knisely xbox
7:47 PM addictedtochaos Yeah, but Halo Infinite is also going to be on Xbox One.
7:47 PM LyricallyC lol
7:47 PM Jared Knisely thats why i went pc
7:47 PM Jared Knisely Bethesda/gamepass
7:49 PM LyricallyC The Medium I assume may be the only one?
7:49 PM addictedtochaos Arcane studios
7:49 PM LyricallyC Arkane
7:50 PM LyricallyC I know they have a game play trailer before this one came out
7:50 PM matthew wilson 8
7:50 PM LyricallyC for the Medium and one of it has commentary
7:51 PM LyricallyC they have a separate one
7:51 PM LyricallyC I think
7:51 PM matthew wilson and context to why ms bought them is sony was going to 3rd parties offering them money not to release their games on xbox, not be excusive to ps5, just not on xbox
7:51 PM LyricallyC yes
7:51 PM Jared Knisely only pc
7:52 PM matthew wilson xbox amnd pc
7:52 PM Jared Knisely also pc
7:52 PM matthew wilson and
7:52 PM LyricallyC depends on the contracts for the future
7:53 PM matthew wilson yes
7:53 PM matthew wilson but not be excuse to ps5
7:53 PM LyricallyC that’s giving them free money
7:53 PM matthew wilson sony was paying money to be on all, but xbox. sony was trying to route ms
7:54 PM addictedtochaos Knack wasn’t a worthwhile expenditure but they made it anyway.
7:55 PM Jared Knisely i play good amount of games on controller on pc/ easy to work with
7:55 PM LyricallyC That is the fear for some of Zenimax titles. If their average to bad, it’ll be a waste of money and if they become a support company, that’ll be interesting to see
7:55 PM LyricallyC oh they’ll be on Windows and Steam still
7:56 PM addictedtochaos Knack 2 was much better
7:56 PM matthew wilson 7.5b is nothing for ms, ms has over 130b cash on hand
7:56 PM LyricallyC Knack 2 was good. Better than the first
7:56 PM KageNekoSamax hello there, and yeah hopefully we get to some kind of timed exclusivity
7:57 PM LyricallyC I wonder what would’ve been better: Buying WB or Zenimax?
7:57 PM matthew wilson lets put is this way phil spencer (head of xbox) reports directly to the ceo
7:58 PM matthew wilson sonty only has 30b cash on hand
7:58 PM addictedtochaos 7.5 billion is just a little less than what Disney paid for Marvel and Star Wars combined.
7:59 PM Jared Knisely 200 or 300 dollars for a tb expansion
7:59 PM matthew wilson just use a usb drive as cold storage
7:59 PM Jared Knisely not cheap
7:59 PM matthew wilson fast, try orders off magnatude faster over 25x

8:00 PM LyricallyC That was the way to announce it?
8:01 PM matthew wilson nvmes arent cheap
8:02 PM KageNekoSamax btw did you see that the sales on the xbox one X increased probably due to people confusing it with the series X
8:02 PM matthew wilson use a usb drive for cold storage of games
8:02 PM LyricallyC Good luck Microsoft this holiday and retailers
8:03 PM Jared Knisely prices will drop over the life of console
8:04 PM LyricallyC I don’t think it’ll drop at all but we’ll see
8:04 PM Jared Knisely must current prices of technology drop by halve in two to 3 years
8:04 PM addictedtochaos Am I the only one who was okay with some loading in games?
8:04 PM Jared Knisely so if the console life is the same as the one prices should be fine
8:06 PM LyricallyC The Series X preorders was a mess
8:06 PM LyricallyC how did people not read
8:06 PM matthew wilson nvme gen 4. it will driop but over like 3 years
8:07 PM addictedtochaos I’m 38
