Ep 420 question: Does Being Stoned Improve Your Gaming Abilities?

  • Play Video Games with The Game
  • I know I can do much better in bowling after my first pitcher, but then by near the end of the 2nd pitcher my score starts to go the other way. I can’t really say it helps or hurts, but I’ve had some of my very best matches stoned outta my mind.

For me the game got more immersive like adventure games

Sorry, I dozed off there a bit…. Gamestop employees claim new Red Dead Redemption 2 demo put them to sleep

  • “Beautiful game, but mostly just saw horse riding simulator. Very difficult to stay awake…” said one commenter on Reddit, while another said: “There was a shoot out after a bank heist but before the heist we saw 15 minutes of meandering through some woods and some plucky guitar playing.”
  • When asked if the game looked fun, they replied: “Shootout looked decent, the bank heist was slowly paced. The game will be great and sell like mad but the demo they showed was really dry.”
  • “Don’t get me wrong, I still think the game will be fantastic, just the demo was kinda boring to watch,” added another


Dude, where’s my game? Dice pushing Battlefield V out of the October chaos and has a new release of Nov 20th. in order to make “final adjustments to the core gameplay”.

  • EA also adjusted its financial forecasts, reducing expectations for net bookings in the current fiscal year from $5.55 billion to $5.2 billion. In the wake of Battlefield V’s delay, EA’s shares have dropped over 9% as of early afternoon in the US.
  • EA donates $1m to victims of Jacksonville shooting Publisher sets up Jacksonville Tribute fund in support of those affected


Setting itself up maybe? Anthem makers thread the needle of a cooperative shooter with solo storytelling Beautiful footage, real-time storytelling, co-op gameplay,

  • Anthem’s creators say it can be the cake-and-eat-it too ideal of embracing the kind of loot-shooter design that has made Bungie’s Destiny so appealing, while still giving users more personal investment in the narrative.
  • Not a HUGE Mass Effect type story crammed into the game but players stories that can expand or live on through DLC.
  • Game director Jon Warner discusses the terror and excitement of leading BioWare’s new flagship IP
  • Launches Feb. 21, 2019 launch for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.


Rainway should let xbox one owners stream existing pc games their consoles 2019

  • I just want to stream, play whatever my Xbox games to my phone.
