So hello and welcome back to another episode of for as academia. Today I am joined by upon May Oi, guys and Chris. Christmas, what's that? What's that? Merry Christmas, and it's very Christmas everyone hit you enjoyed your Christmas and you're eating and drinking and all that good stuff. So for our last episode of the year we're going to do around up of our gaming highs and lows. But before that, just one piece of news to catch up with. Did you guys hear about the KFC console the spot? By that I can't lie. KC partly it was. They said it before and I don't know really, for it was serious and then, you know, they came out, didn't? News I've got D like here from her east, says KFC is fully serious about its new gaming KFC playoff console, KFC. It's KFC console here, and the sudding is it has a built in chicken chamber warmer. So what started out as a joke is not reality at KFC. Having teased the console since June two thousand and twenty, KFC have officially announced that they will in fact be launching a game and console with a built in chicken warmer called the KAF KFC console. Oh, or however you call it, it's taking a shape, sending that of a KFC bucket. The console busts K and t forty fs. KFC has teamed up with Cooler Master and houses a cod on. Hold on what? Yes, yeah, it's got K and it's up to tier to for you. FS. Yea. The master. N See one hundred chasses as well as the Intel, and you see nine extreme compete element to drive performance. are still keeping space for your chicken? Yeah, what's yeah, so that's been the chicken, chicken, woman Mugin. You just play games, you know, play games, play a part, call game in that she. You know, you put your chicken in there. At least you know when you want to take a break for let out, have some Justis of the repeat this, Mr Chris, I think probably is it to a bit more, but the actually essentially, essentially is a pea thing with a yeah, it's trying to understand why. I got strong. Okay, yeah, said, yeah, it's K processor. We already ray tracing. Yeah, it's got right, yeah, we already ray reason terribut SSD Barracuda. Okay, yeah, WOW's murder it. Chris. However, the heat thing is just not going to work. I don't just like, yeah, I'm a bit weird. That wants me. He is not going to work. Put in putting free products. Yeah, that's a bit that's a bit mad. You know, exhaust yeah, I got what my guess is. It's probably going to be about. I don't know what graphics card they put in it, what you for? You they put it, but it's probably going to cost close to a grand. Yeah, let's see all it does. But she's five. Yes, so this is just who might be? Might be the one for you to excuse me. Oh, yeah, probably you want it. So it's true. You better than what I'm using at the moment, to be honest, when I did warm my chicken. It's fine it. But yeah, that's the oame piece of news that we have today. We're going to go straight into our main topic. So this is going to be like a free from discussion, I think, just everything gaming that we have indulged in this year. So does anyone have any like highlights on this year? They just want to jump in and go ahead and talk about fair because of Covid I was just I've been since I've been at home with stuff. I've had been so much time gaming a few of my favorite games. This year's like persona five, real all right, really enjoyed that game. I think four hundred and seventy hours into it to get that. Yeah, that game. It was amazing. I think it's already us. Is One of my favorite Jil beach's ever, and now it's just from playing that, because I don't really play persona five. I don't know why I should have really, but persona, but I gave up a chance, one good percent of five row and I got hooked into that game so quickly. The whole stots. No, I haven't. That was my first ASNAP, so if I was my first persona, and now I'm looking forward to the next. And what's the one that's coming to the which one comes to the switch soon? Yes, Mt Five, yes, and man, I'm going to be trying that as well,...

...because I know some part of the same time and putting a remaster of sent t three. Yeah, I'm going to be trying those games out now as more Greens games of all time. You can from that. I'm definitely going to be playing. I'm living to get it, but yeah, I really enjoyed persona fiver or and also if the final fancy seven remakers. Well, put a lot of hours into a didn't put a huge monk compared to persona five real but yeah, the fine fancies remakers. It is a very good game. I still recommend this if it's still on. So I think it's like self fay quid or something now. So if any wants to get that they haven't played it, I'd say player. Yeah, I don't know. The Games I've had to yeah, like I said, I've been lot of games this year. Were looking through on my side the games I have animal crossing. That took up up, break up three hundred hours and I'm a crossing, you know. I think I'm to find that, to be honest. Yeah, even more if I didn't like board after terror. For me, hundred, yeah, over three hundred. I'm still playing. We didn't know I've played it all. But yeah, I think it just adds up because at this it was for months. I'll played daily, like every day. I'll play like maybe, I think it may be something like that, up to an hour. So just doing stop like daily tasks and stuff and keep my island in order. And this was going on from my march consecutively till like maybe Exceptember, October. The hours just added up for Animal Cross and you don't fully realize. I know you got you just don't play still a ten, because it's still the ten is the first, not to speak. There's maybe the reversal. You're actually just a game collect well, I mean NAS cards. Maybe what you see people just no game is Christ because you know what, like my switch playtime this Shar has been a bear's more. Twenty, twenty four hours. Yeah, so I don't know how it's so low. I think there's got to be some sort of mistake there. What really twenty four hours? Yeah, yeah, so you showed us that four because I have played a bit of smash and I did play quite a bit of Religi's mentioned kind of was not the longest. Again, I thought you played a little bit as well. Yeah, I played bits on a blade as well. I'm not that far anything into it, but I played quit a bit. Yeah, and considering that we streamed smash burrows not even that long ago, that last week, it was only for like three hours, quite weird. So where we got twenty four hours? But in terms of games that I've right like this year and played the share obviously Cooloduy war zone, which came out in March, has taken all my time and I think I probably raped up about thirty days. Oh well, the third mods as well. I shoot, I'm I think I got thirty set, about thirty days safe one day's playtime on my on coolog modern warfare, which includes all Zime. But then I've also been playing I mean we played a lot of FIFA turn the peak of on the start of lockdown, played a lot of else that. I Play Street fighter and up playing a lot of street fire, which is strange because it's not a new game, but ended up playing a lot of that and then just random little indie games here and there, a bit of Nintendo online. But in terms of the Games that I've I thought were pretty well being or pretty big this yeah, the highlights. I think final fantas see has to be up there. Yeah, I fun making yeah, we were come out this year. We may come out this Yo. It's weirdly this year, so weird like. Yeah, I've got to mention that. Come out last year, this year March. She was Marster this year. That was the whole thing, because you would all obsessively day. That's what we all got. Now by someone. That's exactly what did. Said I got burn out. I did, but I just felt like cult actually doing I'm not just giving up playing it. Maybe one says off. Having said that, day, I think you, Pete, the automn update was giving update all your Christmas one. So I didn't really I looked him once and then I just yeah, I didn't such like get the furnitise and I saw I was actually going on. I was like, I'm not that, but I'm not the first. Actually. Yeah, I've really played out that game, even though I'm just gonna Bake on was get out as well, Chris. Yeah, all right, top of a hundred hours...

...and that one as well. That game. Yeah, there's been some good, good games this year. Anyway. I was actually watching a video of games with the longest playtime on the switch and gonna bladed chronicles to I believe, was up. Yeah, yeah, I'm not surprised. Oh, to loads of hours to complete hundred percent. I think the highest, the highest one, I'm the longest one was once on. Yeah, that goes about saying three hundred hours to one hundred percent, a hundred percent, without just doing another hundred percent. THAT MOS on. I'm like one hundred on that game, on the must right and generations on that. Yeah, I'm a hundred percent. I don't mean get every single thing, but it's like he's like Gett I know it's getting on the last to see. Yeah, seen everything. There is a see that generations they have something where you have a look book anyway, shows before the different areas, regions that you can go a hundred percent. You get like badges or medals. It's basically co filling up all the medals and includes getting old gold crowns as well, and it also includes some of the most hardest quest in that modsnic games as well. But I'm might even gone to finish and all of that. So I feel be able to be bothered. I'll pay too much world anyway. It was on the words that game. That game consumed me. I think my highlights of the year the Games that came out this year, because I think a lot of the games I played think come out this year. But yeah, this year that I played a lot of. Obviously, animal crossing, which was like my saving grace from March till June until I kind of just like I did everything there was to do and think after I terriphy in my island, which actually all my plans are started, really finished, but once I unlocked out, for me it kind of just like it was like a steady decline after that, which is weird because I think of like new leaf and how I could just send on my vids again today and just playing unique for like a few hours. A bit down, but like something different with new horizons. somethings it feel like you've done everything, so there's a need to play anymore. It's weird describe it. It was something you feel with new horizons. I sorr. It's not something you feel with them new league now, because even up in the lead up to new horizons I'll still playing new leaf that here and they're not like back of new horizons. I play it and it'd be like a marathon at each time I play it. Look six hours. I pick this game for both newly this lost. So one hour run around, say I to my villages, unplut the weeds, shopping, I can set it down, I can keep coming, coming back to it. I don't know what it is. I think this maybe because everyone is online as well, sharing their progress and anything they're doing. It really have that way. You leave there's more like an online community that's a lot more active. Is All locked up, maybe? And what else? I play streets of rage, for which is my first streets of rage. I knew off streets of rage, obviously, but I'd never actually played it before until, for I had a lot of for my dad. Within a lockdown. I play through story mode with which character? With it, of course already the CYBOB looking character, I think, is his names. I Walk, you can be some remembers the rich for character. You's a new character. Oh sure, that guy dried see's like a side walk. I don't know if his name but yeah, Okaye, she's a rage. She's very Fu okay, this is very sure. Yeah, okayzyst, I read that one. That was fun. I got percent of five royal. But when I want to talk about that, because I'm still see this pilot, it's so I got really cut my on that. But then I think when am I giving highlights and I feel like it was robbed at the game awards. But we all know how the game awards is going to turn out. I could not forget goes to Sushima. I was really free to say go to Sushimare. You never said we are complete. Forgot about that and I'm still playing that game as well. Come back, we'll come back together. It goes. You are like branting and raping about it. Oh yeah, I should be. Yeah, Haydes it should have at least one something in the game awards, even though we knew the last us he was going to sweep. Is Hayley's only on switch, by the way, switch PC. Is it on, please for Discom as well? Actually, I'm pretty sure story on the cell. So, Chris, and I don't think I'm going to get I think I'm going to get it as well as on. It's on the twinty, I think. Yeah, maybe even less. Also of the switch show. So yeah, someone who doesn't even like Roglis, so those dungeon quality games, which just wasn't sue, turned off. But I think eventually all the positive reviews got to me, and not so like Gameplay of it, and I cut scenes and stuff I toally interesting and like I started playing it and like in a game like that you do expect much in the ways of a plot, but that actually is one to be fund and to get the full story you kind of have to play through several times, which I found really cool. The sound design is really cool. It's like completely disc complete. was acting that the game would the psy characters, main characters.

It's just really nice to look at. It just really fun to play. It's got that kind of addictive kind of gameplay where you can play once and then you have to go back and power up, get this weapon, do this, try anyway, and it's just really like addictive kind of gameplay styles. We it feels like a really solid game, like an all France usually Gameplay, story, audio, everything so like, so like it's Christmas. Actually, I was gonna ask, are there any games that you haven't had the time to play that you're thinking of playing now? You've got a bit of time. So if I've oilcide, and that is, like I said, it's I just want I want you to get onto that third semester. Keep talking about I need to see what it's about. Yes, fantastics or some of the best music of the game as well like that. Yeah, and you'll see when you see who the villains as. All that spending mind. Okay, but I'm lucky to have avoid spoilers this far. So, yeah, you don't get to voice. I'm not going to spoil it for you. To find out for yourself we get to it. How are you per hmm, just trying to think. Now there's a game that I'm not really I've got up. He started played a bit more now. That be mean to horizons there are. Don't actually a use. I'll be playing that a little bit. I know it's I've been because I've been turning for ages to play and I now I've just started it because I've heard I had too much good things. I know it's like a three year old game now, but it still looks amazing. It's basically yeah, I figured the time when it came up because I saw just breath of the world as well. So let me let me see what. I just had to see what horizons are all doing the say, because it's basically the same. It's basis and open world game, exploring it, killing mechanical dinosaurs and stuff. But now, so far I'm really enjoying it and I'm just going to try and I'll get around Tim for is. There's got a lot of funten in it as well, because I've got that and it's got the DALC's as well, so I got to try and get through that. But yeah, it's going to be. Horizons are a door for me. About your Chris, I've been deliverating. There's a couple games I've been interested in playing. I think it's going to be between playing this guy would sword again. Okay, yeah, so playing sky with sword and the switch and obviously, as you know, the only barrier is to switch on the wing anyway. So right now, anyway, I was gonna yeah, I was even going to be I'm scoured sword on the way and obviously the biggest barrier to that is just setting up a wii is just a long especially when it's something you use, you routine me just put away when you're not using it's not like a main console. So there was that. The other ones were octopath traveler. Oh my God, I never even Gammer. I Dunn did it. Yeah, so it's about traveler. Surprisingly, it's rice now. Yeah, yes, that's twenty something quid. Yes, if I would. Okay, cool. That was a post. Traveler is one of those games where I actually played quite a bit when it first came out, but something else came out around the time. I'll SUPPI Cham traveler came out and I kind of lost my way with a game a bit becausin board game. I thought he was honest. It may have been. It was two thousand and eighteen, October, so I think I's around the time smash came out. My head was already with well before around that time, my head was already swaying towards smash. Chris Smash Him in December, I think about twelve him out in October. Yeah, thanks, I'm not too short als over November. But yeah, it was actually really good. The problem I found was I tried to go back to it right and you kind of it's one of those games where if you don't know what you were doing prior to stopping, it's quite difficult to get your get your bearings back. I feel that, and so it kind of just put me off on another I never really bothered playing again and the final game, Death Stranding, oh my gosh, I was this years. That's standing. Was the end in the last years. Remember. Yeah, yeah, end of last year. But yeah, I really wanted to play it. I started it, but I think it came out around the time, as same time as in come around the same time, the end of last year. No, no, end of last year. Sorry, what was that's it's twenty nine. Is Two thousand and nineteen. Can came out last year. Yeah, so was the end of last year. We've been looking at like... shop. Yes, it was November. It was. It was November twenty. No, wait, let me Google this. It was November two thousand and nineteen. November, member tween. Hang on, hang on, I'm really confused, love. Yeah, that's truly nineteen. It must have been November two thousand and nineteen. Yeah, yeah, well, the game came out that time. POKEMON, YEA sooking came up. So the Shit, Carol, I'll sucker Rol. Yeah, I've got about as well. You play it? Yeah, I don't really. I haven't played it either, but I'm still playing. I'm playing, play and demon souls. Yeah, played a little bit the things with my ass man. The problem with demon selves is I got to a place where it was like, you know what, you're in front of the door before the final boss. Yeah, Edge, and then you stop because you have to do something whatever, you got to leave and you don't play it for a long time. So back because when you yeah, you had all the muscle, memory or the practice, everything muscle under problem. You need to complete keeple I want to do that. Most memories long. So I'm right in front of the buses door and it's like, don't do I haven't even attempted it yet. About it is so I don't even know what to expect or how to play it. Well, these get back into demon SIS. I don't think for a little bit. I want to play a bit more. I've got that. Yeah, that's although the fine linen stay three houses. Oh Yeah, I've got that. To your community. Just get I think I'm on the golden their route, just like their second describe as like the neutral root of the game, and I'm like on the penultimate chapter. But then I stopped because I was just like, Oh, let me play something else. I've been playing this game for like two weeks straight. I got like ninety hours. So I was doing a grinding on the sign as well. And how do all these like plans for how its going to customize the classes for each characters? I'm going to switch them to this class so they can level open source for someone. I such them back to sword master. They have both. I was doing that for like my whole unit. It was really like I was really like in the rhythm a bit, but not for want to go back there. So some characters on a level lot. I don't remember what I was doing and how long it is going to take, but I think I just need to like get it over with. I've really seen a few squares for the other roots and I just want to like play to them. It's everybody game down. So yeah, I think this Christmas all finish off three houses as well. Ye Know, how do you think lockdown has effect in the way you play games? Sneak Games to like work a little bit, depending on the game. That's definitely what happened with animal crossing, I'm request started to feel like work exactly that animal crossing for me, is some games felt like a sure I think it's just like the time as well, because I'm not good because I'm working from home and stuff as well, and I can just play pretty much have a lot more time for games. Just feels sometimes. I got a lot of the Games too and a backlock there that I just I just sometimes I leave them alners go to the game that I just be I'm usedly used to play it sometimes. But yeah, it's a bit of is it? It just got the options and now I've got the options and the time, but I just met. It's feels a bit sometimes feels overwhelming. Nothing hard got. I got backward to get through. I've got all this time and I just can't up to get through and I just put off sometimes. But yeah, it's still let me from like, buying more games. Are Yeah, that's the thing. Doesn't stop me from B More Games as well. If you can see what I've got, like, like I said, I've got some games to go through. I've got, I board another three as well, because I got with the bill and sells. Well, I've got, like I went then my cry by, a special edition, which I played a little bit of, like I said, even souls. I played a little bit of what the Games horisones are done, which I'm commedy playing. I've got those of must which it let me know over talk about which games I have. People married or Garby King asked me where I have like games and the People Mary. I'm sort the beginning. I've actually got Super Mario and the anniversary. Oh Yeah, I've got that. I've got the I have not even opened with package. Yeah, I got Super Free Deal Stars and I've only got like I got eight stars in my sea. Touched on the teeth, five stars, Amer sixty four, got one start once. I'm sorrying to spread. Sorry in so short I've even touch galaxy yet. The thing with me is that because I've finished galaxy already, I've played Super Mariosons for countless time, start to finish. The only one I really wanted to play with sunshine, and as that because I have paid sunshine a little bit when I was young, I don't really have that push to play the game like I do with other games. I... want to. I do want to get around to playing galaxy one more time, definitely, and I want to finish Super Mario Sunshine for the first time. Yeah, I living was supero Santizz I really like the soundtrack when I was plaza and everything. But yeah, yeah, hopefully I get around so it's a playing at least once. Yeah, Maris Sunshine as well. I should I played it a complete it, but I didn't get hundred twenty stars, so I was the only reason I want to go back is to get one hundred and twenty. I actually only missed one star. When I first played it. Now it's called the Blue Coois. I couldn't be booked. I'd like seven many blue quids with seven left a fine or something like that. I'm a bit of time. I just did do it in the air. I remember growing up and a lot of people didn't like Super Mario Sunshine. I remember I like, yeah, a little. People it was it's a bit devisive it type. Yeah, yeah, well, I liked it a lot the game on. I had so much. People didn't like flood. People didn't like I know I get white people, but I like blood personally anyway. I like the whole mechanic. Could as also Super Mario Galaxy. Best marry Sumergaty, too, is the best Freedo Marrio game. See, using to buy the collection because I barely play sunshine as a kid and played my sex to four as an adult. I haven't play Galaxy and I still still taking my seat time with it. Yeah, yeah, he was amazing. Gala, see, had the fantastic soundtrack as well. I've heard this absolutely fantastic lunch. Yeah, yeah, Galic a big played every three D Marrio game. Actually, I thought. Yeah, I was talking to a friend actually, and was just talking about how, back when we were younger, we play games from start to finish. And, yeah, you almost wouldn't play any other game until you were done with about that one. Yeah, and that game. And it's just now, I don't know, it's because we have a bit more money than we didn't back then. Every money. Yeah, thanks to like WIFI attention. Yeah, and that Phono will get you like knowing that everyone's got that. I definitely bought Super Mario the facial anniversary. Yeah, because I went up to a low stuff that led it to the being a ticket Chuma. Yeah, I remember looking at I remember having it in my Amazon basket and it was fifty quid and I was thinking it doesn't make sense, and I canceled it and actually canceled it, and then I saw everyone with their with their copies, and I was just like, Oh what Gosh, and I went to our Gossamer. Just be the minute. This is all. No stocks are running out of that. I'M NOT gonna get caught like you by my like maybe five hours. Think I'll even played five hours. It's definitely under that for meas before. So, yeah, that's a thing. I actually I actually developed the new pastime during lockdown, where I look at the price of rare in Sendo Games. Past time. It's a fast time. I'll just go an Ebay and see how much these games came and it rattles me because some of these games I've owned and it's like it costs so much. Like I saw sealed copy of opering of time, the one the gold cartridge. Yeah, Oh, yeah, that one rand. What's rand? Yeah, ground, one, Jesus is Lord fire, ember them on gang cube regulator rating do with? Like? Yeah, reading dawn, I saw going for about three, three, four hundred pounds one. Oh my God, I can understand set of time because it's been put it's no, I can understand half of radiance because I think it's a imported nything like that. Oh, no, those it was. It was a power version. No, system, oh, we right, right, right, yeah, okay, reading and all that stuff. I think, like I get the gold call true show because it was a pretty yes, collect it's like a limited edition. Yeah, it was, because it's like these games are just normal games that you could just buying a shot once upon a time, and now they're going for this much like if you look at the Black Label Super Sash brothers, melee going for loads. Yeah, you know, there's the payers choice and then there's a regular one. Okay, okay, the regular ones down for quite a lot. I saw skies Arcadia are going for a grand. How much? Earth bound is crazy. You've not got a port remake. We must and nothing, I think sometimes. I think about it. Like some of the Games that we buy, I know that they'll be worth quite a bit in a couple years time. That even a game like octopath traveler. Yeah, for...

...sure, because I don't know if you can still get visible physical thicket. Did you? I can get physical copies anymore, and I bought. I just bought a physical copy just I wasn't thinking about it. I just wanted the game. I just want a physical copy. But then I heard that there was no more physical copies. I like, it was still sort sold out on was like, what the Hell? Yeah, notice, it's pretty interesting. I don't think we'll get that many games like that going forward because of how mass marketed. So many things are part from limited additions like, for example, Smash Bros, you know, the big, big one with the bigger yeah, maybe that, and some still books wether than that. If you're going to get much from these days. Okay, so we've discussed the highlights. Now some of what of the low points of gaming, or two to twenty? You know my as a good bagner. Start with the the one that's most recent, the CYBERPUNK. So we've already given like our initial impressions on the game. Think on really speak in video, which will be in the description box if you're watching on the tube, or the description of just what a fierstode as well. So you can watch that and I think there's much to expand on based on our initial impressions. Yeah, it's it's just we could go we could talk about what the bad for work, because it's still still would a news now even the investors are some final class action laws against the four different now firms. So, yeah, saying Miss Leading on how the game was except for a year. That's sames very sustave. Is just crazy to think that this really has been so catastrophic it could lead to the end of CDPR as a company with these little seas is really yeah, it's greatly. That's made plenty of great time. That was in the past, by the way. Yeah, the game call of it is a good game at the core. But yeah, they should not have released it like this soon. It just wasn't a finished game. It wasn't the last of it. The lack of Polish, it is just kind of is. Is Right, absolutely Friday and it's not. The thing is so terrible and last don consoles. But the game is actually still a last doing game. It's not lucky. was made for stray of a new generals last JEN yeah, okay, it's been a it's that's been a complete haphazard from the delays. Fine and fine, fine, but the fact that they said it was golden ready to just have to get all right now, a couple of things, but as we see this not it was not ready. It was still not ready. Yeah, and they're still gonna have to do like two major patches, one in genuay than one in February, to hopefully fixed the rest of it. But my it's been a mess, complete and on this boy, I'm sorry, go for it to mature as the same. I think it will still come good the game, but it's just not so much damage now the way they this been handled. Yeah, but you go for it is I was playing on the original Persfour and there were a few like moments where experience like lag or things are aloading properly. The time I got stuck on the lading screen, but nothing in the way of like the bugs like we saw posted on tech or anything like that. But I think I haven't said that. I think time was staying on psfive and he crashed like a dozen Nimes and got to finish the main story and again just crashed so often and like if everything going on. I think once I completed the prolog with the highest Nading, I didn't really have a real incentive to carry on playing because itting the other Nason had playing, I had don't like the Backburn as well as I could just be playing dings instead. I so after I the die stuff, I well, I tried different again. So side say first man, I'm one of, well, I was going to say show, but a lot of people who aren't going to trade the game in or get their money back for the game, and I do feel like the issues will be ironed out and it's a game that of us you have been expecting for, you know, like eight years now. Yeah, Hey, but almost eight years now. And, as Puny said, the collar game is very good. I'm willing to get them time to iron out the kinks and hopefully sometime next year, when it's all fixed and all the gretches and all the patches are putting into place, we can get a good game in the... that we expected to have in the first place. Might have a bit of a comeback story where it's similar to no man's guys. Guy, that's very true. So who knows? Yeah, I'm not saying the Gaming Eva. I'll just not really have the real to play it, probably because it issues. I've had a few bocks on the game, like weapons. Slowly in the year, dead bodies, like limbs, floating up and up. Yeah, against Christ a couple of times. We've just not really I didn't motivation to play it, but I'm not treating it in I'm still keeping it here and then, yeah, I will play it. Once they burned out the issues and stuff, I'll probably get back into playing that and I think it will. It will not good. This just is unfortunate how the things have turned out for it. Yeah, I don't Sim in the mind I will wait for them to actually finished the game and I'll get in this shoal next year because actually said, it is a good game at as cool, and I just felt like, for the sake of the Devis and everyone who was working on it on the ground, that he were at the mercy of whatever investors said to finish this game. Now another thing was even but I think it's also management. I thinka yeah, well, be a manageable at the top dictating everything, and that's how it yeah, I think it was management that kind of messed it all lot. Man, they just wanted it because I don't think, I don't know the investors proper pressure them like that, because they it. The rest is that that's with the lawsuit or saying that they didn't pressure them to say it. They just said, you know, the really left it as them, trusted them all stuff. So I think in management just really made up complete cock up of it also. Yeah, and it also leads as well, because that a couple of another try to think of a triple a games at this she had not been that great and it makes you think about the stay of some triple a games. Are Trying to get them out. Yeah, avengers, as always. Actually voice. How could I forget where I came from? Sure, came out this year. Came up in September. Yeah, came up September. That Games play base tank that game even so vengers as well the many boxes like cyberpunk. But that game is cause more really that great. So it's had his own issues as well. It will actually know it was buggy as well, with buggy nots bet a sign from buggy. Still, I never really played it. I didn't even I played the demo barely a little bit. Prime he played and he just get just living a week. He stop playing. He said that Games donk. So will I remember to see people talk about the Games that? They said the game very reprittave repetitive is for a luke game. You don't even see the loot on you. So yeah, that's the thing. If you're supposed to be one of these, you know, Live Action Service Luke Games, you would actually see the loot that you get. You know, change in the pearance and stuff. You don't actually see it will really it's just minimal changes and stuff like that. Is just but I know the player base dropped it within a month or two, like Nivas and something like that. So that games tank to it completely kind because it deserves to. Yeah, deserves too. I think the end've they've lost our money, square. And what's the deps that made it again? Crystal Dynamics. HMM. Yeah, they've lost that. They've might recuperated the marketing costics, Ceter now, hopefully they're in their listen, yeah, hopefully. Yeah, yeah, that game is just, yes, not just not good. No, not a game, but to the gaming something that has it disappointed is, unfortunately, Nintendo. Yeah, a company, as there's a complic some police this companies, but you see, yeah, it's crazy because we're all bignans and the found we all growing up with an attended consoles. Wow, all of us know how bad they've acted in so many respects. Yep, recently, and not even just recently, but there's also stuff that has come out, I happened in the past, for example with despying on the hacker, the three Ds Hacker, yeah, which is unacceptable for a company that's going to be as inclusive and family friendly is Nintendo. Is just goes to show at the end of the day, business is business. Companies. What there's there's so many decisions that have been made that they're just really, really puzzling. From smash to from smash to the hacking from the Attica Joy, con joy, come boys, Ye charity. It's just really confusing. I don't know why I've done all this. I don't mean what. It's just they really moved super overprotected inside piece. I think it's bad. They should. They should be more flexible. I think it seems almost like an up see more in for a company to be so I'm taken serious, like yeah, but tender had the contitular and more about also the copyright music is...

...huge choice to music on Youtube. It's gonna give us some having ass last year. It's been ongoing. He's like never everything. Yeah, but I'm expecting they're going to take the rest because all he's appearance or just screaming into the void. Basically, who knows. It's as if Nintendo's providing an alternative and like Oh, we're really seeing this rhinal or do soundtrack with all the whatever you can buy here. Like I know I would buy it if it's a Sundtrack I really liked, but there's literally know the alternative. They just want to take away any avenue to experience with your game music, and I even with the whole thing. With that, why smash ultimate? Does I have a story? Mode like brawl, because people are uploading the cutscenstube and they didn't like that. So is it cris story mode in ultimate? There's other business, yeah, being this claim. You know, you don't we talking about stuff of this year we've been talking to me. Even forgot to mention about we've had two major games, console releases actually as well. Yeah, we should really talk about ourselves. Are going to remind you, guys, but you guys. So, yeah, this year's well, you know, we had it last month, the released of the xbox series, s and x, and the playstation five and playstation five digital. Yeah, so we've had we got a new console generation and there's even these with this new releases. There's been issues before. It doesn't feel like it doesn't feel like it does it, but the reason most people quite as image. Yeah, to be first, probably that because it's not really much games out there yet. Okay, well, the Games on playing most of the time are not mixed Gen Games, the piersful games. Yeah, I'm supplaining Wall Games when we have the only true next Gen Title I've played, I'd say, is the immedial souls. Yeah, call of duty. Fair enough. It's appears five title, but it's still peaceful game an the end of the day. Yeah. Also forgot assassin's creed. Watched all so disappointment, I so irrelevant. Also got I found that game excruciatingly boring. What if you don't have if you don't have high tolerance for for running around and doing a lot of nothing, you're gonna hate it. It's a lot of traveling, needless traveling, in my opinion, a lot of go and find this and it's hard to find. A lot of glitches and I don't know, I just can't see myself going back to it anytime soon. We're at all to be honest, you guys. Maybe books, maybe like ten minutes of it. Yeah, felt like assassin's created the future. Not as bad, but I think I will try and give that. Want to go just to see what it looks like on psfive, but I wasn't really the biggest fan. I want something new and exciting. That's why I really want the announcement of a god of war. And you got a water howl. Yeah, I am getting thing for any one, luckily. Yeah, I'm interested in in devil may cry five. Yeah, it's good. Actually, he's really good. I've been interpecial edition. I've been in jopa tried virtu yet, but yeah, it's been fun so far. I recommend anyways. Only it's but is it like? We don't think he's like Fay good? Yeah, so, yeah, it's not expensive, but I've told myself before I get another game, I need to finish one. Find any more games. I don't think I'm buying any more games. There's nothing really major coming out, is there? No, not really a but next year, I'm February, we will have to get supermario with d well, by the way, let's maybe get it. It's more pil. It's on that multi player. Yes, February on my multiplayer. Oh, you'll be fun to stream. You can all do it's the game is actually so much fun playing mold people. That sounds good and it's really good. It's actually fantastic game as a multiplayer game as well. I used to play you, but I don't know we you and when I was a NI o the time makes not off like we just play it together. It was so jokes playing us for just it's. It gets so hilarious, man. Fun to stream it as well. Round the corner, yes, only around the corner as well. So, yeah, a lot bind me games. Ye Know, we shill do and play it together. So it's fun. Also, I was going to say, as well, we have with their new consert generation as well. There has been the issues, as you see, the pre or the issues at the bark with free orders. Both Sony and mics have had the issue free orders. And then...

...the scalpers. Yeah, the scale of post release where apparently she'd Scalps of made twenty over twenty million. Oh God, I think I can't. That's it. Even more. I think it's May being close to forty something like that. It was some stupid figure because it would like scalp dumb. I think they're going off Ebay listings because you could see even an America the consoles getting sold anything like up to that. To grant to you, Granddad. Yes, five was going for to land. Yeah, ps fives are going up to anything upwards are too grand ps five, they embarrassed. And xbox series x is going like it's over a grand around just so. Yeah, the scalpers have been making bank. Has Been Crazy. I know there's been UK, there was USU, even UK. I think some MP's are put a notion to do something against scalpers. That it make it. You know how they've done with tickets. So as you can't re sell tickets significantly higher than the RRP, they want to do that. So emotions me farther than this been gathering. You know heat. Well, I think a lot of them piece a greements. For me, it may be a case of eventually then it may become to UK Lord that you can't sell like electronics, will gaming consoles significantly higher? Guy sory. I hope it goes through as well. I'm really hope I read, though, because it's actually ridiculous some of these things I'm seeing. Even had some of these scalpers, like there's one big UK one what they called trying to be name. Even got branding. Yeah, they got brandon. I'm trying to remember the name of them as well, because they will trying to day. was come up to some bulgus nonsense stuff about saying that at least I'll will be getting someone there ps five Christmas for their kids in this and that. Well, because you bought it and you're selling it for stupid themselves. If he didn't buy, I think it's confreated. Something is Christy I'm trying to remember the name of them, but yeah, they will. They did gather some storm and summer touris storm because of they were. They're very outspoken about here. The scalpe of needs to be stopped. They really need to be stopped. It's actually a despicable they just using bots and just buy out the whole thing for people can get them and then sell them from extortionate prices. Even cx are seen in psbys, eight hundred and fifty pounds. See Act, you know, they're cut big company that sex of a hundred fifty pounds and its sad because if people are going to buy them, are what the people want to buy. It for their kids, for prison. Yeah, yeah, and yes, some portion it really it's unfortunate. It's really unfortunate. Yes, often needs to be done anyway about that. Don't stop all these boats. Buy them this stop scalf for the man, because some fair one. So Fair Are you? Guys? Begin this week I'm just thanking game, game that's prioritize person a five royal, because I keep going back to Haities, but I need to like. How F are You, Don Peno, for overall. I'm the last time I streamed it. I was like, okay, we'll be in come of see today and like I played for two hours and I still up. But Ryan thended it. I was just I think I have to clear like one other area before I can findly still his heart. I think after this, after this dungeon, it's going to be a lot quicker for me because the Mayans the whor. It's taking me so long. It's just I don't like Cam Cheeses. Dungeon call so as it done even in the original game. If it's very much just as the tutorials. Yeah, again, even the really done it. I'm so oh my God, and it's just longer than the others. I think once I've done this the actual story kicks in. Nothing I'll meet the new characters that are introduced in war and anything like that. So be a lot more the sailing from here on now. But yeah, I'm going to paratists in five oil, a few more runs on Haiti's maybe get back to my six before and then thins the golden dairy. Some basically at the end about too much actors for finmling three houses. I was just think, as you were discussing all highlights no one mentioned among us. That's definitely how Oh yes, oh my gosh, you're right, guys. And then there's a among this has done, guys, is among us, guys when I came and went quickly, but among us. The funny thing among us as well, this been. It came out to thousand and eighteen, didn't it? And then it really picked up. Yeah, this year we picked up Steve during this lockdown and Quarantine. Among us is so fun. But after commend them. They've done so much team by them. This really pip you know what? It just makes me realize that games, you know, that, that Mafia type game. Yeah, in whatever context, it always goes around. Well, no matter how complicated or simple it is, it just seems to do well. Yeah, just trying to guess who the corporate is and and clues, and it was very well,... does, it doesn't, and it gets people's emotions out for as well. That's the mere but, clay, with no voice, you always contribute to the game yourself because, yeah, between playing online at randoms and playing online in discourse with your friends who you know, so you can try to like pick up on their towels that. This is one of the last time. When you are the impost, you're doing it again. Just put them out play, yeah, meaning, yes, what means? It's the same game each time, but it's different each time because, yeah, yeah, really, that's my gaming highlight, I think, the years. And Yeah, yeah, something higher for me as well. Lockdown. Oh yeah, and I should have shot up before. Goes Sushima, one of the Games that they played this year. I love. I know I should mentioned it before as well, because it's a Shima fantastic. This is this game is a game made by West developer and I can't belete they really did will. And it's funny because dark soilder is a western developer making an eastern game. And Yeah, those is ASTA developer. Yeah, from from, from, from Japanese, a rock. Yeah, yeah, from so the Japanese. So it's funny. Yeah, they done. But yeah, it goes to Shima's on. Fantastic Games. Got A great deep story, amazing combat, amazing open world. I'M gonna do a new game pass on it as eventually Bob being playing up when I come back to being playing, because they did a few months ago add a free multiplayer mode and was even pick them have to pay for it. was just and it's a lot of content from them. Only player mode, which is quite surprising, is room for free with free update. That's really good. Yes, it is. Yeah, it's really good. Aslike it's you got your typical loot system, you know, where they use key instead of power, so you know you got better loot. Your key goes up a stuff, and then they got any added raids as well. I've not even got to the Radia because I still need to get my key up, but it's a lot of contents. Got Like nnes story missions you do put when caught, and then you've got like survival mode as well, up to four people. It's a crazy gets tact it, but it's a huge amount of fun. I'll recommend that. I'll recommend the games. He get a lot for your money for that, getting goos and nothings only to fake quit as well right now. So yeah, I recommend its hugely recommend it. Cool. Well, if you gonna round up on a light a note, we talked about Super Mario whod world in Fab are the any other like game releases we're looking forward to in two thousand and twenty one? I'm must on our eyes, of course, I'm looking forward to long want some time. Actually picked that one because it's coming on the switch. So yeah, maybe break of the world to Oh my God, yes, but I was coming on next year because it really we haven't really stayed right now. It comes down next year. I'm just looking forward to that as well. Of course, a long time since I've looked forward to a single play game. Yeah, honestly, yeah, the only games when it is Zelda, always look forward to and now I'm also looking forward to next. You've got a always coming out, the next got to walk game, so I'm really looking forward to that. Yeah, it's the one that everyone else said. That's right, he's it's what is only know? It's only three of psfive pispers collections. We get it for free. Did that all purpose. I real that console orry. I'm thinking, Oh, yeah, I will, you will play. Is mazing, man, just im I've started, did play. I'm going to get back to eventually as well. I did start a new new game plus and I'm doing on give me God of war mode. So I'm gonna get go where you go go. Yeah, I'm doing give I'm doing the hardest difficulty. So I'm going to get back to and see how that goes. I need to remember to pay the green the hardest difficulty in all these games. Is this real training to get good again? Yeah, absolutely, I know. But the thing is that I get, I know, more I get through that game. There's only there's going to be things are going to absolutely piss off. And as the VALKYRIES, I don't even know if I have to, if I have the head for the see at about them. Yeah, well, let me tell you, like hide, yes for me, he I don't e didn't finish them. He just said no, I'm not doing this. He just didn't want to do the no more. I've managed to do all of them, but boy, the the last one, the Valkyrie Queen, the rage I went through and the the amount of almost reach quitting. Is that part of the main storyline? It's not. It's Nice, the optional. So base. Yes, it's. Yeah, they all optional, basically. Okay, yeah, she's the hardest boss in the game to a butt, but way she's. Yeah, that one basically has all the moves a would the uptight valkyrie. So and as a stupid amount of health. I remembered amount of t times I went. I went. I kept Los until I came close to being and I just even with a Reviv I kept buying, but...

I don't I managed to finally do about buying what and I was so happy to find a get out of the way because my head was steaming it took me so long to be a but yeah, nice, it's a lot of fun and God of war and a Hollway for right then we don't know we're going to call the next one. Is it put will regnar rock? I think that's something. It is called God Rule Regnar Rock. Yeah, that's gonna be amazing. So I got yes, that'sinicly. Yeah, still north, because they basically the God of war. Two Thousand and eighteen. It did have a cliff Fang like that just made you know it's another sequelce coming. So yeah, it's a Matt. It's a mad cliffhanger as well, like Im. So if you guys play, you'll see it's gonna look unreal. And Pierson, I look on. It's true, because we all God have already looks amazing. So when I see this new the new God was going to lose, absolutely fantastic, cool, cool it from us. There's our two thousand and twenty gaming highs and lows. And, yeah, I think it's being pola and Chris. Yo, you have a happy new year. Will see you in two thousand and twenty one pace like I guess,.
