Yesterday Tim referred to Normal difficulty in Halo as being the intended difficulty, however Heroic is considered the intended difficulty by most of the Halo creators, and the description for Heroic in 3, ODST, and Reach states, “this is the way Halo is meant to be played.”

Fran gave Pokemon Puzzle League an 8.9, not a 9.0.

A minor detail, yes, but still wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page considering how well people remember 7.9

Last week Tim asked why the GameCube is abbreviated as GCN and not NGC. Apparently, NGC is a trademark of National Geographic Channel in the US, and that might be why they decided to go with GCN and not NGC, as it is in Japan. Other theory is that NGC is close to the abbreviation for the Neo Geo Pocket Color (NGPC). Thanks Did You Know Gaming for pointing these out.

As of May 2017, GTA V has SHIPPED over 80 million copies worldwide

Note there is a difference between sold through and shipped, but it's likely the number is close.

The mainly IGN staff comprised jam session band is (was?) called Scro-Magnon.

Here is a video featuring them with The Pride of Long Island Colin Moriarty.

not exactly a wrong but lootboxes etc are usually bought with fake cash rather than say a 1/4 in a machine so it makes it harder to judge what its worth im the moment

Greg said you can't argue that loot boxes are gambling. I think he's wrong and so I will.

The English Oxford dictionary definition of gambling is as follows;

The act of gambling money on the outcome of a race, game, or other unpredictable event.


You're betting virtual or in many cases real money on the chance that you receive something from a box you find desirable. Whether or not you agree you can most certainly make a solid argument for them being gambling.

When it comes to "mainstream" consoles, yes the Game Boy was the longest the shelf going on for 14 years between 1989 - 2003

But when you go worldwide and dig deeper into game history, things get a bit more complicated.

The Atari 2600 went 15 years, from 1977 - 1992 ((But was largely ignored before being "Officially" discontinued.))

The NES went from 1983 - 2003 but in Japan ONLY.

Then there is the SEGA Master System... which launched in 1986 is STILL being sold in Brazil (pushing around 150,000 units a year) due to a local company getting the license to keep selling them. This one can be debated because they come pre-loaded with games now, but this is just being added for completion's sake.

Deals of the Day: Did Greg ever mention the metric crap load of PSVR games on sale on PSN for its 1 year anniversary?

Greg, your capsule machine comparison IS WRONG.

The capsule machine isn't in your house yelling at you to spend 5 bucks while you're playing a game in front of your TV and it's not part of another (free or prepaid) activity you are already engaging in.

Lots of people with addiction problems, don't go to bars, casinos, etc. Right now, there is no way for someone who wants to play a certain game to turn off loot boxes completely to not be exposed to this option at all aside from not playing the game at all.

Cuphead has sold over 500,000 on Steam alone, according to indiannoob.in...not sure how credible that site is, but it's the only one reporting it right now. There are no official sales figures for how well it has sold on Xbox One.

On The Evil Within 2, Bethesda must've had a sort of change of heart. Dan Stapleton tweeted out they got there review copy yesterday for The Evil Within 2 before the games actual release.

As a person who watches a lot of tv still. I've seen Shadow of Lots of and The Evil Within 2 commercials the most. Bethesda is pushing Evil Within 2 imo.

Not a correction, but a couple late news stories: PUBG hits 2 Million concurrent players and Oculus announces a stand-alone headset called Oculus GO for $199, no PC/mobile device required. I know this isn’t the normal place to put these but thought they deserved discussion. Keep up the great work boys!

This is with regards to Tim's statement that EA are lazy and therefore FIFA 18 looks bad on the Switch!

*INSERT GREG RANT*

TIM, YOU'RE WRONG!

- The switch is powered by a custom NVIDIA Tegra processor ala The Google Pixel C tablet or the NVIDIA Shield tablet.
- It is 512 GigaFlops of Floating Point performance
- As a comparison, even the PS4 is 1.84 Teraflops of performance
- As a developer, you would have to choose between dedicating that for graphics versus gameplay.
- The reason is that FIFA has a lot of other math calculations for AI that would take up processing power and graphics would need to take a backseat.

THIS DOES NOT MEAN EA IS LAZY. NOT OPTIMIZED MIGHT BE A BETTER WORD.

*END GREG RANT*

Love you Tim, keep up the good work!
