Discussion overview: Mass Nerder Episode 102
Some of the biggest news the team talks about is the Microsoft brining their Xbox Live to a slew of new platforms in a way of providing crossplay. The team sees it as a move for Microsoft to retain relevancy in the gaming marketplace as a top contender. Microsoft’s crossplay aims to bring it link players on PC, Xbox, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch.
More on the side of gaming, the team discusses the widely popular Apex Legends. Gaining an impressive momentum shortly after release and hoping to dethrone the ever so successful Fortnite. This also begs the question: Is the gaming industry changing to the F2P model? With F2P games being around since the beginning of gaming with huge hits like RuneScape and even FarmVille, developers may have found the winning formula: Free to Play games with micro-transactions.
This isn’t really new by any means, but the mass market has overwhelmingly swung this way with Apex Legends and Fortnite as a prime example. Maybe it’s the aged perception of our points of view, but we much preferred buying a game for a single cost and being given all the content at once rather than bombarded with DLC and micro-transactions on half-finished games.
On the side of movies and TV, the prospect of the horror-themed Aquaman spin-off “The Trench” becomes an exciting idea. Hype (or lack thereof) for the new Terminator: Dark Fate movie is revealed, though it does feature good ol’ Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The hot topic of the month, Ben and Jake mystically predicted Will Smith as the genie in the new live-action Aladdin before the cast was announced. A proper stoned educated guess we say! Impossible to follow up on the class act of Robin Williams however (rest in peace), hopes are still high for both the Aladdin and Lion King live action.
To end, blue Froot Loops are the master race of cereals and we’re gutted we don’t get them in the great white North. A real tragedy and most important topic the group discussed all day!
