StaatsOne
the answer this question is $$$
SimonWest
Its performance related
JesseHaysFL
I hope this episode is called "Scrit-spleen" Not to make fun just because it sounds cool.
SimonWest
do you want splitscreen or a decent single player?
StaatsOne
do you think perhaps MS pushed people to do online only for 360 to push xbox live?
Pac-Thingy
Because it saves money and people aren't voting with their dollars.
vacuousmermaid
Splitscreen means less copies sold.
SimonWest
343 dev said in interview few weeks ago was performance related
JesseHaysFL
I never play split, my friends are 3k miles away and my wife is not a gamer.
A7
Yeah, split screen is antiquated.
I mean it's fun, but it doesn't make or break a game, especially Halo.
JesseHaysFL
I loved it back in the day, 4 player Star Fox on N64 was badass
SimonWest
as players could go anywhere and basically it needed to have 2-4 versions of the game on 1 box which just isnt possible
wizardofvideogam
PC games never had split-screens, just went straight to networking.
ShredAlex
Why didn't you do the dishes?!?! Shoryuken!
A7
JesseHaysFL +1
StaatsOne
yeah it's fun if you're a kid that can't afford your own system/internet
stedman
4 player mario kart as well on the N64
Pac-Thingy
Technology is to the point where the internet gives you the same camaraderie as being in the same room so nobody cares. They miss very little in their mind
JesseHaysFL
Star road!
stedman
good times
SimonWest
Also rocket league is in a set space
JesseHaysFL
and those goldeneye games went on for hours and hours
StaatsOne
what MS and Sony needs to do is release a little handheld screen that talks to the main console
JesseHaysFL
but now we all have families and jobs....
but I do hope the "kids" get to have the same fun I did
its a tough call
A7
Fun for kids is gathering around a TV and air playing a YouTube video of someone playing the game.
StaatsOne
yeah but not a single freaking game that uses it
JesseHaysFL
A7 youre not wrong
wizardofvideogam
Split screen VR would be a hard sell.
Pac-Thingy
What if the real answer is humans are evolving to the point where physical human proximity is making is uneasy? Its probably a blood related issue. Lets all get a toxicology report
StaatsOne
I'm out guys. Add me on PSN: staatsone
A7
Adios, StaatsOne, thanks for the laughs.
Pac-Thingy
Shave gel made me cut into my flesh. Cream all the way. #TeamCream
JesseHaysFL
Honestly though I think youtube is like EGM for the new gen kids, I remember going to the grocery store and looking at those mags to find out an little but about the games I couldnt play/own. I grew up poor so a lot of the things in those mags were what I saw and never got a chance to see in person. I really think youtube might be the same for a lo
t of people out there.
A7
I have to use an electric. Any razor destroys my neck.
It is, JesseHaysFL
I'm very interested to see where they take YouTube Gaming.
They have the chance to make some noise with that. I was blown away by their E3 coverage. 1080P, 60 FPS, never crashed.
JesseHaysFL
Me too, I really believe cable is going to be in trouble.
A7
Any time something big is going on in gaming Twitch can't handle it.
wizardofvideogam
Goodbye razors and magazines, hello Youtube and beards.
JesseHaysFL
Me too,lol I watch the whole thing on youtube
HAHAHA
I just retired and decided I'm not shaving ever again!
Pac-Thingy
The Razor Magazine book club is in trouble
SimonWest
agreed a7, all the mags feeds were broken, by day 2 i was sold on youtube live
A7
SimonWest I started out on Twitch, but the minute it bricked on my Xbox One, which was around the EA presser, I went to YouTube and didn't look back all week.
JesseHaysFL
I was looking for Keighly and happened upon the youtube on sunday night. It was perfect everyday. It was better than spike tv by 1000%
A7
JesseHaysFL Spike is a disaster. Do it 100% or don't bother.
SimonWest
Missed the first 20 mins of bethesda :(. Gamespot all choppy no sound, ign good pic/ sound kept on pausing then found youtube :D
Paine
Evolution is pretty fun. Warning Call/Symbiosis is super OP.
A7
The gaming sites have so many cookies and ads loading that it's impossible to watch videos on them.
JesseHaysFL
Yeah youtube sold me, now lets hope they continue the effort. I would love to see Gamescom and TGS stuff there as well.
A7
JesseHaysFL Comic-Con Hall H panels are my fantasy.
JesseHaysFL
You can listen to Kevin Smith's.....8-)
A7
After all of the leaks this year, and the rage from studio bosses, why not stream the panels on Twitch or YouTube? Makes too much sense.
JesseHaysFL
Yeah I think ComiCon will catch up
A7
Lol, poor Kevin.
Pac-Thingy
Kevin Smith/DLC crossover. He just announced hes gonna go thru the Arkham games
JesseHaysFL
Yeah that was rough. I thought he had about double what he did but it was still awesome
Yeah with Matt Mira its going to be awesome as well
SimonWest
Comiccon i worry would just become a pervs dream, and just focusing on certain female "costumes"
JesseHaysFL
Na just the panels
A7
I doubt people would've stuck around anyways. That movie he showed sounds awful.
JesseHaysFL
streamed no show floor
wizardofvideogam
Thanks for playing, Mr. Green. I kid, but I love.
SimonWest
that could work jesse
A7
SimonWest Not if they just stream the panels.
jeffgreen

A7

JesseHaysFL

jackal|27658

It's always good to hear jeffgreen podcasting again. It's too bad there wasn't really any meaty news or new games this week.
jackal|27658

JesseHaysFL
