Time Stamps - 00:01:00 - Housekeeping Thank you to our Patreon Producers: Black Jack & Mohammed Mohammed The Roper Report - 00:03:44 - Ms. Marvel joins Marvel’s Avengers 00:11:08 Best Friend Q. - I am wondering if this trailer for the inclusion of Ms. Marvel is because there is a good chunk of people who are not feeling the game and they are trying to get more pre-orders. Did this move the needle for you guys on getting the game or do you feel this would of been a better to have her in the game and people find out when they play the game? - Borzen00 00:14:12 Best Friend Q. - Do you think, in modern games criticism, that length is something that should even factor into reviews anymore? Or is it perhaps something of a "when it feels right" situation? - Chad Betteridge 00:21:50 - World’s First for the Destiny Raid, Samuel Horti @ PC Gamer 00:24:15 Best Friend Q. - The raid race in Destiny 2 began Saturday and after a surprisingly short 7 hours it was cleared! It's surprising that such a large expansion dropped a raid that could be cleared so quickly, although black armory was cleared in roughly that amount of time as well. Do you think perhaps the shorter clear time was to entice the massive flow of new players joining up with New Light? - Alex Russ (Zero Syndicate) 00:32:06 - Former Nintendo lawyer and Kirby namesake John Kirby dies, James Batchelor GIB 00:33:40 - Pokemon Stream all but confirms Galarian Ponyta, Kevin Knezevic @ GameSpot 00:44:22 - Out today 00:45:16 - HIMS 00:46:58 - QUIP Reader mail - 00:48:00 - Iron Man VR got the push to February 2020 which is releasing near a bunch of indie titles such as The Last of Us Part 2, Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Watchdogs Legion. Is this title doomed? Should Sony have waited? - Frankfurtter 00:50:50 - One Night Stand just released on Nintendo Switch, which is a game I first saw during the Kinda Funny Games Showcase. I was just wondering if anyone at KF have played it and if so, what you thought of it. It seems like a Greg Miller game for sure, and I’d love to hear some spoiler-free impressions before I take the dive. - Mitchell 00:54:00 - I have two questions regarding Google Stadia. Bruce, what do you think of Google Stadia and the potential of games as a medium moving towards a streaming future?

To his credit, Xbox has not had any exclusive content in their marketing deals since that time. I believe this has hurt Xbox and their bottom line but he has kept his word.

Since then, it has sold over 6 million units, has become a major eSports staple, and is continuously improved upon today by Psyonix. Now, they're removing lootboxes?! We have NEVER heard of this before in a multiplayer game! Could this be a sign that sales are dropping so they want to get good PR now and bump them up?

It is not that I want the game to have massive issues at launch but from years of working in IT I know there is going to be a hic-up or two and the only mentions I saw in the IGN wiki guide and the blue screen errors mentioned in the kinda funny games cast.

But, unlike what we would have expected, the game isn’t only going to be sold on the Microsoft store, but also on Steam. With this move, along with the rumors of Game Pass coming to the Switch and with Project XCloud bringing XBox games to mobile, it seems like Microsoft isn’t very interested on controlling the platforms in which it releases its games.
