Damn sucks that they kinda just gave up on LBP 3 and let the trolls win
Bless needs to get his hair to Killmonger level!!!
I honestly think Obsidian Entertainment is Xbox's Insomniac, with Arkane being their second best. Obsidian has an insanely good track record and they've been doing it for longer than Arkane despite Arkane having been around longer than Obsidian, and they're also working on multiple projects at once like Insomniac. Avowed and The Outer Worlds 2 are gonna be HUGE! Both games started development since being purchased by Microsoft, with Grounded continuously being built up till a full release, and has been really good from what I've seen.
Many kinda bash Outer Worlds, but that game had a very small budget, and now with Xbox's backing, I can't wait to see what they're able to pull off this time around! I personally loved the first game in terms of writing and story, but the gameplay definitely left a lot to be desired lol which I imagine that's what took the heaviest hit in lack of budget. So I expect everything to be a lot better in the sequel.
Dang Kevin I care about the story.
Thats not how you spell Shin Megami Tensei V.
Just looked up the 4k OLED TV you mentioned Tim, while I'm sure that's a great tv it's like 4 times more than most 4k TVs the same size I don't know if the OLED really is worth that big of a price increase
Easy allies 8.0
IGN gave Skyward Sword on the Wii a 10/10. I don’t think 10s are that special from them LOL
Most reviews I'm seeing are 8/10 and "Wait for a Sale" so I think people should temper their expectations *when they see IGN & GameSpot's 10/10
Honestly, I feel like Xbox Game Studios has been proving themselves since last year. With Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Gears Tactics, Psychonauts 2 having come out (and Forza Horizon 5 looking to deliver later this year and hopefully Halo Infinite) I think they're really turning it around!
Only 71% on Steam so far. Strange…
I'm listening a bit late here, but I'm at work, and Tim yelling "CUBES?!" almost made me spit out my coffee
Really, was not expecting this… wow.
He said Breth of the Wild! He missed the mark completely, the totally wrong game in the series. He should have compared it to Majora's Mask.
“I dOnT cAlL yOu GeTtiS”
Fuck no it’s not lol
We have to see how Arcane's next game compares to Deathloop to see if them being bought is a plus or a minus for them and for players. This game proves that Microsoft bought a good company, their next few games will show if that's a good thing
Blessing comparing Arkane with Insomniac 😂😂😂😂
Why do we keep pretending it’s a slow year with a Halo soft reboot, Forza 5, Far Cry 6, Battlefield, COD Vanguard, Guardians of Galaxy, Deathloop, and Metroid Dread all yet to drop? Not even counting remasters for Alan Wake and Pokemon
If you’re arguing we’re aren’t getting a behemoth game this year, you’re ignoring Halo Infinite
Side note, Deathloop is definitely the Control of 2021. Quirky, experimental single player game that comes from left field as serious GOTY competition
Despite being so good, so fresh and highly praised everywhere no one actually saying that Tales of Arise is a Game of the year contender. Because it is an Anime game.
Man, I dunno if they say it as a bit or not, but, do people seriously don't get that Arceus is the Noah's ARC of the Pokemon world???
Blessing looks like coolio 😂. Keep it going bro lol.
That is a weird thing right this is a Microsoft owned studio. If there is a sequel to this game it may be exclusive or they may flip the switch and make it a timed Microsoft exclusive.
Me thinking getting my 4k tcl android tv was a good investment to boost my gaming experience 😔
Kevin: “I don’t call you GETTIS!” 🤣
Those Kojima Microsoft rumors are looking more and more likely. I think games that have systems 'powered by the cloud' are going to become more and more prevalent. Having cloud based ai with some sought of machine learning that can react to player would be awesome.
Tim I use the CX OLED TV because your recommendation and I love it. I wasn't even expecting this but it works as a PC monitor way better then any other TV I've used.
Blessing’s turning into, “not” the new face of video games anymore, haha!!
There won’t be a switch pro. Nintendo can still make the games/experiences they want to make with the current switch. And given that a new switch model (oled) is to be released at over 4.5 years since first release, that is Nintendo’s ‘switch pro’. Of course they’re working on a new console, which will undoubtedly be very similar in form/function. Who knows what they’ll call it. But that will be a new console. Not a ‘pro’ version of the current switch.
I'd put money on them not doing a "Switch Pro", its too late now. Instead look forward to the Switch 2. Aptly named "Switch 2 U" bringing it full circle back the WiiU era.
Is there a link to the tv there talking about I need a new one myself
Blessing looking way too sexy
Just bought DeathLoop because of you guys 🙂
I like how he focuses only on the positive reviews. Feels disingenuous to shy away from all other reviews that highlight criticisms just to validate and push your own opinions on your audience. Seems like SkillUp didn't get a review copy, ACG gave it a "wait for sale", MattyPlayz said it was Arkane's most underwhelming game yet, and Ben Moore from Easy Allies gave it an 8/10. Remember who is trying to sell you a game to their own benefit, and who is trying to help you make an informed decision.
If theyre doing a polo shirt, the logo should be kevin riding on the horse
I can't believe all these guys claim to be the King of Halloween and they don't even know the Halloween colors. PURPLE. COUNTS.
Blessing's Fuck Boy levels are rising. I fucking love it.
First thing I said when I saw Carnage was "Oh shit that's a red one" 😂😂😂😂 stupid ass movie trailer is stuck in my brain
Blessing Rocking the Steve Urkel is what Tim tries to say
Please stop with the Halloween shit
Bittersweet GOTY for PS fanboys 😅 good luck getting Deathloop 2 on PS 😂
Can Blessing not say prepositions? He keeps calling Life IS Strange just Life Strange, and I always noticed he left "of" out of Ghost of Tsushima.
The shutdown is better because it has a timer and everyone gets up for it if they can or goes on the moment they can the next day. It builds hype to check their twitter mini announcements and the hype for the next day is insane.
Listening to this is KILLING me lol. I downloaded the game on PC last night, but some error is preventing me from playing. So I guess I have to live vicariously thru Tim and Bless until I find out what the issue is
I get annoyed sometimes that now there’s even a standard to the “type” of 10/10 a game is. Just because it’s not GOW or BOTW their scores are somehow different? I hate that the Sony precedent of third person open world games seems to be the benchmark of what a truly great game is when that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. If Xbox is putting out it’s own version of a great game why can’t they just get that respect instead of it having to be a mirror image of something Sony offers?
Cant beat the pure picture quality of Sony A90J and Panasonic JZW2004 but those are frkn expensive. Plus inferior Mediatek soc.
Got the LG G1 for now and man…. you wont be dissapointed. Definitely get the 1 instead of X. Had them both and that new EVO panel is really excellent!
Whoa. Hideo's words sound like someone who's sick
my GOTY is tales of arise
Lol it is so cringey to hear Sony fans give Microsoft props. It was hurting blessing to say nice things about Xbox. Lets just game everywhere and end the console wars
