    Are you telling me that we should be thankful for a broken mess of a game (at release) just because it has no micro transactions? Are you smoking the same shot as levelcap?

  2. wholetyouinhere on May 17, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Outriders was 100% up my alley, but the devs decided to put leftist political garbage in their game. Turns out there is, in fact, a cost for such behavior.

    Regarding NY suing Bobby Kotick:

    1) of course the scandal at Blizzard devalued the company ahead of the Microsoft acquisition – why do you think the scandal was so widely publicized in the first place? With tens of billions of dollars at stake, do you honestly think powerful people weren’t pulling strings in the media to drum up as much negative press as possible and manipulate the stock price? This is entry level corporate subversion.

    2) much like when California sued Blizzard, the involvement of state government isn’t the stamp of legitimacy that many people apparently believe it to be. Leftist prosecutors are basically activists masquerading as lawyers – the law doesn’t interest them nearly so much as forwarding whatever progressive agenda they hold sacrosanct. If anything, being sued by the state of California or New York is a red flag in favor of the defendant.

    Looking forward to Sons of the Forest. The forest was an absolute party always fun to mess with my friends as they all tried to cook some dinner like rabbit hunch and a cut of venison, only for me to drop on by and plop a human leg on the fire and everyone panics as no one wants to accidentally eat it.

    Then you got their reactions of finding my home in the mountains a nice log cabin completely and thoroughly surrounded on all sides by IEDs

  4. Matthew N Williams on May 17, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    I really like the Halo TV show

  5. Mat 37 on May 17, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    I know that ubisoft pissed in the cereal bowl lately but i hope they can manage to emerge independent…. the maximum merger shit storm seems good at first because some games can be finalized and shipped to the consumers but monopolies like Microsoft are not your friend and are probably already lobbying your government against your interests.

  6. Ethan Beattie on May 17, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    I’m going to jump back into Outriders in June when the expansion comes. It was fun for what it is, so I’ll see what changes and give it another fair shot

  7. Jim F on May 17, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    The most recent episode of halo (episode 8) just crushed my childhood… bruh you can’t do that to halo, they crossed a dam line. People who have seen it know

  8. Lazy Axomiya on May 17, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Prey: Mooncrash is already part of the Prey game being given by Epic

  9. Greg Drake on May 17, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Ugh another shill up video

  10. Relevance on May 17, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Everyone said WW2 again? They should have listened or at least hired at least someone able to pose objections to shit ideas.

  11. Edit name on May 17, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    skillups week I’m Video games is somehow way F-ing better than IGN even if he throw little crazy adverts in there 😉

  12. Thomas B. on May 17, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    It should actually be Overwatch 1.4 because the removed a teammate slot so now it’s 5v5 instead of 6v6

  13. Cory M on May 17, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Netflix games are downloaded via the Google store. Not unlike to what Amazon did with it’s games, except Relic hunters feels less like a f2p game that had it’s transactions taken out, and more like a f2p game that pivoted to free via Netflix early in development. that is to say there are systems that feel like they were initially going to be f2p friction points that were redesigned. Relic hunters Rebels is actually one of if not the best mobile game I’ve played (not just because of the lack of micro transactions). It’s a twin stick shooter with leveling, upgrades, a lot of weapons to collect (that mostly function the same, but a few feel unique). Dialogue is fully voiced and unusually good, and the characters are largely enjoyable. So yeah I’ll take more of whatever Netflix decides to give me there.

  14. Ryan on May 17, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    Some "out of the box" performance optimizations in UE5 might be what they are after for this delay. That’s scary.

  15. Eric Harlan on May 17, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    It’s so hard to keep up with this series! Thanks, patch 6.1, for changing MSQ Roulette! 😭

  16. Lars Krantz on May 17, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Didn’t Skill Up hate Outriders?

  17. Diego Vidale on May 17, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    Small correction, if Epic is doing the same offer as last time, they’re also giving you for free Mooncrash too ! Sad I noticed after starting a playthrough in game pass and now I have to finish it there and then reinstall it on epics

  18. Reamus on May 17, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    Xbox showing people outside, by themselves, wearing a cloth mask.
    Science TM.

    🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

  19. ElisDTrailz on May 17, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    Well, I think the evidence is in: you jinxed us when you said "you can play Starfield in November on your TV". It’s all your fault.

  20. Angus Low on May 17, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    Vanguard seemed reluctantly WW2. Hiphop trailer, lack of swastickas, Holo sights, fantasy guns with neon skins, strange emphasis on women soliders. It was odd and off-putting.

  21. Fireraid on May 17, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Time to start cranking 90s while sitting on the jon at work

  22. J T on May 17, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    Wow your take on Halo is way off I’m enjoying it 🫡

  23. ChexMixKitty on May 17, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Welp, time to pirate Salt & Sacrifice until it comes out on Steam

  24. Jase_LV on May 17, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    What I took from this is that we can now officially call you our "sugar daddy".

  25. Vikrant Thakur on May 17, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    Looking forward to mobile games, cringe. Take dislike.

  26. Jacob Scott on May 17, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    I personally like "keigh-3-ley" for the name of Geoff Keighley’s new presentation

  27. Locdogs GG on May 17, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    I played Stranger things on my phone And had To log into My Netflix account To be Able To play it 😅
    So now You have heard The One person in The world who has played a Netflix game 😂

  28. This isn’t the wholesome future for Canadians- on May 17, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Mafia 4 rumors?

    Let’s hope so.

  29. DPMacAttk Gaming on May 17, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    I really hope someday we get a new Suikoden game.

  30. +ac3d on May 17, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    very sad

  31. Pondering on May 17, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    The Day Before: The Year After

  32. CrysJaL on May 17, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Honestly, if Outriders had sold cosmetic overrides I wouldn’t have been that upset, provided the regular outfits werent any worse.

  33. Master Bait Tour on May 17, 2022 at 9:56 pm

    mafia 3 was fucking shit.

  34. Luca Scheidegger on May 17, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Feel good rat

  35. Maxmotor 1 on May 17, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Why don’t People Can Fly shift back to Bulletstorm and make a sequel to that like a number of fans have asked for?? Outriders was met with lukewarm reception from day 1….

  36. Andrew Camden on May 17, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Outriders was an always-online "live-service" that became completely bricked without an internet connection EVEN IN SINGLE PLAYER meaning it was literally only a matter of time til it became as unplayable as Lawbreakers or Battleborn.
    We should rejoice that the game failed because games designed to rob the people who bought them of the ability to keep playing EVEN IN SINGLE PLAYER when the company INEVITABLY kills the servers do NOT deserve to succeed.

  37. daniel dragotti on May 17, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    I couldn’t get in to mafia 3. Hope 4 is good

  38. Oldschool Gamer on May 17, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Activision: WW2 didn’t have enough explosions to fill a CoD game…

  39. Craze on May 17, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    fuck you for that mafia segue skup hahahahaha

  40. Howard Wiley on May 17, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    Does anyone know how you can replay Outriders. I fancied having another look and there doesn’t appear to be a ‘load new game’ function…

  41. Captain Maverick on May 17, 2022 at 10:00 pm

    I lost interest in Outriders when it was confirmed you’d need other players to advance the story. I wanted a single player game, not another online rpg.

  42. Adam DING on May 17, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    lol, I like how u said "how angry it would make me" when talking about clash royale.

  43. XO on May 17, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    10:48 activates Siri for me lol

  44. Kayvon Afshar on May 17, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    The halo series is yet another example of go woke go broke

    Mooncrash is included in that giveaway, no need to buy it 🙂

  47. Rob Vespa on May 17, 2022 at 10:09 pm

    Screenrant? Them or IGN. It’s a toss-up as to which is less credible.

  48. Rob Vespa on May 17, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    Considering the advice you gave regarding The Day Before, are you saying that I shouldn’t order the Bloodmoon Edition of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2?

    Why is no one researching and covering the debacle this game is? Paradox, a very large company, has been completely radio silent on the title. There’s been no real news since… sometime last year. Any news that’s come since then, well, hasn’t been news. It’s been buzzword bingo shenanigans (and that’s being *very* polite).

  49. Joe X on May 17, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    I said it from the beginning activision purposely tanked their franchised and crested controversy in order to speed up the Microsoft sale snd get a better deal for Microsoft. That really needs to be investigated.

  50. O on May 17, 2022 at 10:11 pm

    I think the Mooncrash dlc is included with Prey on the epic store
