I NEED to talk about Twitter, but...
00:06:26
So Twitter is going to be a private company again. They have agreed to a purchase offer of $44 billion dollars, and listen, I have **_zero_** desire to talk about who made that offer. I just don't care and find any time spent talking about the person to be wasted energy.

Why I love Tunic vs Elden Ring
00:08:01
Andrew Shouldice, creator and lead developer of Tunic, was actually heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda, a game known for having many secrets that, depending on your perspective, are either genius or obtuse. But Tunic is heavily inspired also by games like Fez, Dark Souls, and Elden Ring. These are all games I have never played. Tunic got me to love a Soulslike.

Why you HAVE to play 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim on Switch
00:08:20
13 Sentinels pumps out huge reveals, twists and turns that are actually meaningful to its characters rather than being empty fan service, and just super fun story beats every few minutes. And it wears its many sci-fi inspirations on its sleeve. 13 Sentinels is ostensibly a game about teenagers with secret powers that let them call down giant mechs to protect their city from kaiju attacks. But there's also an alien invasion plot line, a time travel element, and even an 80s high school drama. This game is referential, but its characters love the source material so fervently that reference quickly becomes reverence. It is unapologetic about its love for genre fiction and aims to be the epitome of those kinds of stories in a way only a video game can be.

The BEST YouTube advice I’m NOT listening to in 2022
00:17:59
The BEST YouTube advice I’m NOT listening to in 2022 I'm not gonna pick a niche. Instead I'm making a bet on you and a bet on my future. 0:00 - The hope 5:22 - The problem 14:26 - How we'll get there TikTokkers Brave.dave - https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMLje23Ef/ H.mourland - https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMLjeuAMv/ KevinJamesThornton - https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMLjePW5W/ NoCam QR on the App Store https://apps.apple.com/us/app/nocam-qr-scan-your-photos/id1604516482 I'm willing to bet that a lot of you have spent some amount of time in the past few years, thinking about if your job was worth it, like you need to survive and you need to pay some minimum set of bills, but does it have to be with this job in this place? And why should you give any extra effort or care to a job when that effort is not awarded? And that care is not reciprocated? Or maybe like me. You've just realized there's jobs that you don't have to take, that you won't take anymore. Like jobs that can be done from home that won't allow you to do them from home. This collective shared understanding that we, the workforce have suddenly regained of our labor power is a hell of a moment. And it's the first thing to inspire me politically in a really, really long time. But a little closer to home. I've been thinking a lot about work and specifically my work and who that work is for. And that thought has brought me to a bit of a conclusion. I don't think that I want to work for a company anymore. This video is me exploring that thought and what it means if YouTube is a part of that plan. The role YouTube's algorithms play as a "boss" and the role you all, the people that watch my videos, play. So don't niche down. Don't pick a niche. Instead, watch this video and join me as I figure out if I can make this whole working for myself thing work in an unconventional way.

The Forgotten City - Why I LOVE the ending
00:19:45
The Forgotten City has a VERY corny ending, and I LOVE it. I love it so much that I played The Forgotten City for a second time just to tell you why. This isn't a review, and it's not a video about The Forgotten City Skyrim mod. Instead, it's me trying to figure out why the ending to the 2021 worked for me and sharing that with you.

Epic vs Apple lawsuit winner NOT who you think it was
00:08:04
The Epic vs Apple lawsuit winner is NOT who you think it was, no matter if you think it was Epic or Apple. A decision was reached by Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers in the Epic Games vs Apple, Inc. case, and by the headlines you might think Apple lost. But they only lost on 1 of 10 counts. It's the importance of that count versus the others that leads to the misunderstanding. In this video we talk about the Epic vs Apple Lawsuit, why Epic Games is appealing, and why I think this is still very bad news for Apple. 0:00 - There's something you don't know... 00:34 - WHAT happened? 2:11 - Why would Epic do that? 3:48 - Apple lost something HUGE 5:24 - The judge took NO bs 6:00 - What this all even means

Why are people mad about Nintendo Switch (OLED model)? - Specs, Reaction, and Name

I had been writing a video about the Nintendo Switch Pro and why it wasn't necessary, but LOL Nintendo drops the Nintendo Switch (OLED model) on us this morning on Twitter. The reaction is...as you might expect of the internet. People are mad that it's not the 4K output, bluetooth audio, Super Nintendo Switch of our dreams. People are mad at Bloomberg for "getting it wrong." But Nintendo never promised any of that.

In this video I tell you why I was scared, why I had questions Apple needed to answer about the App Store, and why Grindr, Scruff, Tinder, and other hookup apps might have been in danger (and might still be). The Apple hookup app ban isn't real yet. But Apple IS being prudish again.

Abandoned Island - Animal Crossing New Horizons
00:10:10
Abandoned Island - Animal Crossing New Horizons I haven't played Animal Crossing in a while. I bet you haven't either. The game does a lot to shame you when you log back in after a long time, and I have my own guilt attached to my abandoned island. I also have a lot of parallel guilt and shame attached to my body and how I treated food when I was originally playing Animal Crossing New Horizons. That connection is what this video is about.

Apple Discord NSFW server BAN and why iMessage will never come to Android
00:05:25
Apple Discord NSFW server BAN and why iMessage will never come to Android Discord is age-gating NSFW servers (GREAT) and hiding them ENTIRELY on iOS because Apple asked them too (NOT GREAT). This Apple/Discord NSFW server ban is just like all the other ridiculous attempts to make the Internet have less sex. It's silly, and it has (SURPRISE) antitrust implications.

It means a ton of small developers are going to see an enormous raise. But it also has implications for the Epic vs Apple battle and the antitrust cases in the EU and the US. This is huge news that will have enormous implications. Not just for Fortnite but or for the Apple developer community, but for the way American law looks at monopoly power and big tech.

The Amazon Gaming Service, Luna is here, and today I'm unboxing the controller! I finally got early access to the Amazon Luna Cloud Gaming Service and with it the opportunity to pick up the Amazon Luna Controller.

iPhone 12 charger and headphones - Missing Features EXPLAINED
00:13:55
iPhone 12 charger and headphones - Missing Features EXPLAINED In this video, I’ll explain why Apple took the headphones and charger block out of the iPhone 12 box and why you’ll need your own. This thing has no headphone adapter or EarPods and no charger! They said they removed them for the environment, but this kind of explanation isn’t new to the iPhone 12. “No headphone jack” was the story a few years ago, and just like back then, the iPhone 12 “no charger in box” story has a lot going on behind the scenes. 0:00 - The iPhone 12 doesn't come with a charger 0:49 - 5G is expensive 3:44 - How Apple makes product decisions 8:48 - Why no USB-C?! 11:26 - The portless iPhone If you were hoping for an iPhone 12 with USB C or 120hz refresh rate, then you were disappointed by the iPhone 12 announcement. In this video I dig into the missing features of the iPhone 12. No USB C on the iPhone 12. No 120 Hz on the iPhone 12 Pro. Spoilers: A lot of it is about 5G.

Chromecast with Google TV - Stadia enters 2020 console war
00:08:02
Did you buy a $50 Chromecast with Google TV? Stadia DOES run on it! I think that makes it a sleeper competitor in the 2020 console war. Since it's just the Google TV launcher on top of Android TV, that means Stadia runs just fine! In this video, I show you how to sideload Google Stadia and start playing your games on this new Chromecast. It's not just a streaming tv device. It's a cloud gaming console! 0:00 - Intro 0:28 - What is the Chromecast with Google TV? 2:20 - Sideloading Google Stadia & Demo 5:15 - How it could be better If you're looking for a Chromecast with Google TV review for cloud gaming, then this is the video for you.

iPhone 12 Game Streaming - Xbox, Amazon Luna, & the Open Web
00:17:29
Well, they figured out iPhone 12 game streaming. Xbox Game Pass AND Amazon Luna are coming to iOS via the web! That's right. Safari. In this video, I test it out, explain why they went with the web, and talk about what it might mean for games and for Apple. 0:00 - The incredible find I've got for you today 0:39 - So much iOS cloud gaming news 6:09 - Demo of Google Stadia on iOS 13:19 - Apple made a mistake Microsoft and Apple have been feuding over game streaming services for a couple of month's now. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate streaming (aka xCloud) launched on Android only, and Microsoft very loudly called out Apple for not letting the game streaming service onto the iPhone and iPad. Then Amazon announced that their streaming service Luna was launching with an iOS version via the web. AND someone got Google Stadia working on iPhone. It's been a wild ride y'all. Microsoft said they're making an xCloud iOS web app! Who need the Xbox Series X? This is the Xbox news we didn't know we needed. Let's test it out. We'll test the latency in using Stadia on the iPad as well as Xbox Game Pass streaming on and Android device. We'll also check out how clunky running a game streaming service as a web app is on an iPhone 12 or iPad Pro. I used my iPad to try out Google Stadia cloud gaming and a Google Pixel 2 to try Google Stadia and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. If you have cloud gaming questions, please leave them in the comments below! This one's gonna be fun. iPhone game streaming is happening!

Kentucky Route Zero: A Game You Can't Win
00:34:23
This is a love letter to Kentucky Route Zero. Kentucky Route Zero is a game you can't win. It tells you it's a tragedy. 0:00 - The most important moment of the game 0:14 - Spoiler warning 0:27 - What is Kentucky Route Zero 1:23 - Kentucky Route Zero on capitalism 4:14 - 1st Technique - Magical Realism 12:06 - 2nd Technique - Choice 22:46 - 3rd Technique - Community 28:25 - The game's final act Kentucky Route Zero is one of the best games I played this year, and this video is why. Actually, it is a game, but it's really a point and click game, adventure game, visual novel combo. There's a LOT of reading, but it's also one of my favorite Nintendo Switch games of 2020. Magical realism, anti-capitalism, and some serious David Lynch vibes make this one of the best games of 2020 for me. A game ostensibly based in rural Kentucky, you play Conway, on a search for 5 Dogwood Drive. This sends you on a route down the Zero, a mysterious highway in the Mammoth Caves of Kentucky. The game tells you it's a tragedy and that your strategies are useless. It's not the kind of game you win. You can't min-max your way to a good ending. This is my Kentucky Route Zero review. I played the Nintendo Switch version, so all the of the Kentucky Route Zero gameplay you're seeing is from the TV Edition. Included in this video is my cover of a hymn that is included on the Kentucky Route Zero soundtrack. If you'd like to download that yourself, watch all the way to the end for instructions.

Will the Apple One bundle save you money?
00:10:35
The Apple One bundle we've been waiting for since Apple's March services event in 2019 has finally arrived. Almost. It'll be here this Fall. 0:00 - Intro 0:37 - What is Apple One? 2:20 - Will Apple One save you money? 2:52 - No Apple Music (or Spotify) 3:16 - The Individual plan 3:44 - The Family plan 4:28 - The Premier plan 5:58 - Weird exceptions 7:03 - Why Apple is launching a subscription bundle But will Apple One save you money? Are they simply bundling these services together without changing the price? And do you even want what's in the bundle? Is your iCloud storage full and you don't know if you should pay more to get Apple Arcade alongside your storage upgrade? Well, in this video, I'm going to help you out. And then I'm going to answer the question, why is Apple launching Apple One now? They've had iCloud and Apple Music for a while! Why did Apple choose now to bundle all of their subscriptions together into Apple One? Let's talk about the new Apple One subscription bundle that Apple announced when the launched the Apple Watch SE, the new iPad Air, and didn't let us see the iPhone 12. And then I'll tell you why Apple is going so hard into the software as a service business. Hint: it's about the stock market.

The PS5 Preorder failed hard, and despite that fail, the 2020 console war lives on in the minds of those who know less than you and me do. If you watched the event, you may want to know what I think about the Playstation Plus Collection, the PS5 price, and the exclusive games like Demon's Souls, Spider-Man Miles Morales, Final Fantasy XVI, and Deathloop. 0:00 - MORE CONSOLE NEWS 0:40 - The PS5 Deetz 3:32 - Something really surprising 6:23 - $70 games and $10 subscriptions I'll tell you what I think about the PS Plus Collection and how I think it competes with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or doesn't. And I'll tell you if this means there's a console war in 2020. Spoiler: There's not. There never was a console war. So load up Best Buy, try to pay $399, and refresh the page in horror trying to preorder that PS5 while I tell you what I think about the PS5 release event today. Oh, the website failed? Sorry. It's gonna be a wild one until November 12th, y'all. Did you preorder a PS5? How many failed attempts did you have? Do you believe in the console war? How are you playing games in 2020?

I wanted to follow up on what this means for the Xbox strategy that I laid out in my video about there not being a console war. Honestly, the new Xbox hardware news is really awesome, but it's EA Play coming the Xbox Game Pass that is more interesting to me. And it reminds me a TON of Microsoft's history with Windows! I also wanted to take the opportunity to respond to some of your comments. Y'all made some great points, and I wanted to take a moment to talk about some of them! You all asked about Xbox All Access, Google Stadia, Playstation Plus, Playstation Now, the Nvidia 3000 series GPUs and so much more. I've got answers.

The 2020 console war is here. The PS5 and Xbox Series X have been announced, and are already locked in a battle. At least that's what people want you to think. We've been set up to think this is PS5 VS XBOX SERIES X NOW FIGHT, but honestly, this year is so interesting that this console "war" is going to be so different. And why do people always forget Nintendo? So, if you want to know what I think will happen during the 2020 game console generation, why there's no such things as a console war, or if you just want to fanboy in the comments, please watch this video. We go into the history of the Sony and Microsoft console wars, how Nintendo has historically avoided them, what Xbox is planning in the 2020 console war with Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Game Pass, and how that compares to the Sony PS5.

Epic vs Apple EXPLAINED - Why Apple won't back down
00:23:56
Epic vs Apple explained by someone who thinks about this far too much. 0:00 Intro 0:46 Chapter 1 - History of App Store shenanigans 7:17 Chapter 2 - Xbox Game Pass stirs things up 14:32 Chapter 3 - Epic vs Apple or "When V-Bucks Ended Capitalism" 17:09 Chapter 4 - Why Apple is like this If you saw the ridiculousness that is going on between Epic Games, Apple, and Google and thought "What the actual....?" then this video is for you. Here's the order of events: Epic Games puts direct payment into Fortnite on iPhone and Android Apple bans Fortnite from the App Store Google bans Fortnite from the Play Store Epic sues Apple and Google Fortnite shows an ad that rips off the 1984 Apple Superbowl ad and uses the hashtag #FreeFortnite It's SEVERAL days later and things are still hapepning every day I care too much about this stuff, and while I don't have a dog in the Epic vs Apple fight, I do care a lot about what kinds of products can be built and what gets left behind when we limit our App Stores for business reasons. In this video I've broken down the history of the Apple App Store, explained how Xbox Game Pass is tied into all of this, and taken a stab at why I think Apple hasn't backed down. If you need Epic vs Apple explained with all of the context, this is the video for you. I'll be back with more videos like this on topics that are less awful soon.
