They're so bad jokes. But they're so bad. He makes a funny because it's so deadpan. He was just look, one of the best dead Pan Comedians. I used to love when he would just do a bit on weekend update. You'd hear it. Do not land that. He would just go the crowd is divided. Flip to the next big yeah, they you know, it's like a they're I watched some of those takes my post. It was like a Dr Carvorkin. He needs to go back to like Dr or Cavorkian is releasing a fluid out of album. It's so bad. He needs to go back to his day job. And they didn't like laugh. He's like his day job murdering hole. Welcome to the Basement Lounge podcast with your host, Mike Shay and Mike Wells. Sit Back, grab a drink, relax, let's see where the time takes us enjoy. I found there's like three ten minute compilations of just him ripping on OJ really, because he but that's why I got fired. Why, and pretty much why you got fired yet, because the head of NBC at the time was a friend of OJ's and he had told him to stop. So he just fucking doubled down. He's doing stories about like the pope and he would turn it anyone. Oj, he was like the pope. Released at a new book today called Oj total or God told me. OJ Did it. Prince Philip released a book about his marriage to Diana called OJ did it. I mean, come on, I remember when when the verdict came in like that weekend, his first is opening joke was like, according to the corner state of California, murders now legal here. Shit, it's sad, he's say. It's very sad. He was. He was always my favorite weekend update host. Yeah, I think he was the I can't think. I don't know who. I like you. I'm I liked it. Tina fey and amy full Amy Paller, and how was it? Fuller, Amy Polar? They were great. I like Tina Fay with Jimmy Fallon to yeah, those are my my top three. Step Myers wasn't bad. Right now, Colin Jose and Michael Jay or killing it, but like Colin, Colin Quinn always felt like a weird choice to me because he did it after norm. Yeah, or was now know it. Where was Kevin Neal? Was it Kevin Neal, and I think Kevin Neal was before norm. Was Kevin Elan before norm? Okay, I think so. But norm was always especially because it was it was like all right, and here's the fake news. I just it was good and it's sad he's dead and I really do want to how people knew I cancer. Well, I mean that's thaying. He does have to tell anybody. That's so yeah, that's personal. And but like I your sweeter sound off, Mike, it's it's like, you know, I would see him on, you know, Conan or Kimmel or you know, whatever whatever the show is, the David Spade was hosting or whatever was, and he just always there were times where he would seem completely, just kind of out of it and your first thought is like, Oh shit, he's like his he he. I think he had a cocaine problem at one point. I was like as he's still doing coke or whatever. It's like he was probably going through chemo. Yeah, because when one way dad had cancer that when he was going through Chemo, he was I mean he was his brain was fried. Yeah, it fucks up your lucidity and and you're reilly to focus. So I'm just going fuck like that makes so many things make sense now. Well, isn't that crazy, though, like because you've watched his terviews, he was still like on it with his jokes. So if he had to have chemo brain, you'd be like Goddamn, you just yeah, fucking funny. It's it is on. Man is always on a guess said the saggate roast is so funny. Every time he would pop up on anything was great. My my friend, Gen sturgeor whose she used to be a she used to be a Fox News reporter, Fox sports reporter, she was. She was the one that Brett far was sending Dick Picks to. That's your friend? Yeah, we're friendly. Yeah, I was a friend of mine and she, I guess, when that shit went down and norm like reached out,...

...or she, I'm saying because she posted this on instagrams. I talk about it. Norm like reached out to her and was like pitched her a skit, like we should like totally do like a skid or something for like sail or something. That's just this athlete trying to pick up young chicks with Dick picks and stuff, and she was like the only reason they didn't do. It was like they couldn't make the schedules match. Serious. Yeah, that's so funny. He's like, I wish he's like he was the only person. He was the only person at the time who like was like supporting because it's time. Everybody thought she was just trying to take down bread far off, like there's no way this is true, and then all of sudden that it's like yeah, no, it was fucking true, like her career was fucking ruined because of that Shit. Is that so weird? Yeah, how's that? I don't know, but anyway, it just it speaks to Norman Donald always be not always just being on it a always doing it for the bit, but also it's like again, like fucking again, with as much as he would talk shit about the fact that like Oj got a quit it, it's like this is a guy who, at the end of the day, like he was all about like doing the right thing and and I love that about him. When they would remember one of my favorites, as they said, right now, the they're trying to decide if OJ Simpson was on speed the night of Nicole Brown Simpson's murder, to which I think they should just, you know, run a DNA test of all OJ's blood they found at the scene? Did Johnny? Johnny Cochrane introduced the the infamous bloody glove at the trial, which was a bad move for hit on his part, because Oja blurted out there it is Jesus, it's man. That one that hurt. I was having a good day today and I saw that fucking her. I was like what. I was like what? What? Like? It's weird when you see like people you look up to die. Yeah, it it makes you kind of stopped. Just makes you stopped and pause, like there's there's this person and that like I always look whenever they say like, you know, special guest nor McDonald, like I get excited. It's not going to happen. You know it's gonna be a good energy, it's a great fucking interviewing. It's not gonna Happen Now, and that makes me like I was. I was kind of hoping like he would shoo, because I listened to smart last which is this podcast with Jason Bateman and will will Arnett and Sean Hayes, and they just interview people they work with and I was really hoping they would get norm mcdonaldmock. Obviously now they can, but just yeah, every time he would pop up on one of the talk shows, you knew it was going to be fucking funny. He showed up on David Spadeja's one time when when I would got it, got it, got twitter and just fucking well it was. I'm you know what, I'm going to find a clip. I remember, Guy, remember it. I know you got twitter. His twitter's fucking wild. His twitter is something else. If you haven't checked out J simpsons twitter, do yourself a favor. I mean it's it's something special. Norm McDonald J twitter. I list every listen to the bit about his about how you lose to cancer. Have you leared that bit? No, and then you realize that was about him. Fuck, I have a long we pulled that up next to get your good your yeah, I headphones on'll play this clip of him on light. That was lights out with David spatter and I can't hear anything yet. Damn it, Mike every time. All right, now, I there you go. Questions from the crowd, the Q and a beautiful I'll start with I'll sort everyone who crushed ours. This is a guess. Yeah, car, yeah, I mean Little Sam, but I hadn't do him as a lot of OK,...

...just some guys are stone killed McDonald's right there, just so, but just some guys. You just knew that. We come up with that whole man character. You know before we go on, this is shitch me to destroy the yeah, just kill it and then you know he is. He Leans, you leave, you'd bleeded and go. You have Farley was on too with you more. Yeah, Farley came on with me the one, one of the times we remember he was on, had a harness hooked up to him. OKAYBLE, he supposed. Oh yeah, yeah, over the audience. Was it this guy? Yeah, yeah, it's guy. Yeah, Shit, that was like that's whispy. Is Premise? No, it's here. It works finger comedies. Good. So they pick him up on the cable, I think it was real watch show, and he swung back against the backdrop of it. We can up. They D and the Kate. The harness got hooked on one of the update either and it couldn't get hot. Was that a dresser air? I don't remember, as I remember that having which sort of crane where they lifting big Gee's big ones. He rebuilt actually a wind chime up. Yeah, he was exactly a wind shot. He was gone. I hear you got stuck up there to Jim and he goes. I have a weight problem balance. So funny. It's from two years ago. Warley. What well, gay, someone says. Anybody remember their favorite weekend update jokes? It's probably right. I do. I remember Dennis Miller had a joke about he said the sun, I'll the rises, is going to be turned into a movie, but handling would probably wouldn't have lighted. It's called Ernest goes to Spain. I see Oj's in the news again this week with about norms series of Oj I have to tell you, the true spirit of that weekend update as an outlaw, the sort of mentality and they told Norem, the guys who signed the checks, is high up as you can go at NBC. Do not do any more OJ jokes. He's my friend. Norm comes out the next week. Completely bought US Jays. I have to give you credit for that, but is that why you have to show no. I must say now, in this cancel culture and everything, I have to say, I no longer take that position with OJ Simpson. He was found not guilty jury of his peers. I accept that. I see him as the greatest rusher and the head. That's all he is guilty of to me, as the greatest Russian the history of the maybe I was the greatest rusher to judgment. How do you feel about him stealing back his memorabilia? That's bad, that's low. Yeah, we had a video of him. Do we have that video? They can show it. He's on twitter now. The more Jackson, who are incredible? Days ago you already got a house, but forty. Yeah, J what was he talking at break? Looking for the real killeries? Why do you? I'll tell you, man. First of all, he just got into the Defensive Hall of fame, the top one hundred, all offen, top ten. Oh, good for him. And yeah, it's fantastic. Is He's paid his debt to society and Hell Go, you know him to do joe...

...won't do that. So fucking fun's just exactly. Oh, man, resting fees, norm McDonald, Fuck Dam leading rush. I was a rushed. What was the but you were talking about cancer, but the bowel cancer. Yeah, that'll cancer and a cold little bit says a little bit sick. You know, it's a combination of clips. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, sharp myself. So that's not scary about Thornton years giving you all the hints. That's Grue, my uncle burt. He's my great uncle Billie. Come over. He Got Bal cancer. Now he's he's dying, you know, and are like some people like to say. Now they see the old days a man could just get sick and die, you know. Now they have to wage a battle. So my uncle bird is waging a a parageous battle, which I'm seeing because I go and visit them and this is the battle. He's lying in a hospital bed with the thing in his arm, watching mattlock on the table. said that battle like I got on the box set of matlock. And but it's nice, father. He's going to do yes, just a black thing in his battle. And the reason I don't like it is because in the old days they go hey, that old man died. Now they go hey, he he lost his battle. That's no way to end your life. You know what a loser that guy was. Last thing he did was lose. He was raging a brave battle, but at the end I guess he got kind cowardly. was what happened. The Bale cancer it guy breave. You gotta give this in the Batte cancer. You know, they were in a battle and then, and I'm pretty sure I'm not a document, I'm pretty sure, if the cancer dies, I mean if you die, the cancer also dies. That exactly the same time. So that, to me, it's not a loss, that's a draw. That's the cancer gonna drive God, Uncle Burt's wife. This works. Cancer are strow me to my cub car. First names, ballot, that that's ass. Is a good bit. That's a great bit. And he's telling you about himself. Oh, got, his uncle Mighta had cancer, but obviously he has cancered. Yeah, just got fuck. First name, battle,...

...first name. Well, like cancer to the something get, the cancer is gonna spring out of like, all right, where's this wife? That's a draw. I realize what it means. You get to sit there and just go wow, great bit. Oh my God, fuck man, Shit. How do you move from that? It's going on there is they're not getting rid of porn. Congratulations, to get fast.

Fuck, yes, DA, Oh my God, my Dick got so hard, Holy Shit, like I when you showed me the thing last week with with the pills all that, I was like, okay, Oh fuck, okay, this really good. That trailer made me give such a shit about this movie. Now home, like, Oh, I need to see this. Yeah, yeah, I like with. I'm picking up what they're putting down. Yeah, I'm super pumped for it. HMM, well, in the yeah, because it's one thing I like is it looks like they get rid of that Weird Green Tint that the other three movies all. Yeah, yeah, that, dad, there's always that. I never really thought about it, but you're right, there's that Green Tent. Yeah, everything just just like we was. So it was the whilst Showski's version of the Schneider version. It's because Snyder's got that weird ti too. True. Yeah, so, yeah, no, it looks really good. You know who's like John Wick, but it's all I can see now. I mean that's because I found about the same time. Yeah, the guy who looks like a young version of Morpheus or something like. He's playing morphous. Is that what he's doing? Yeah, obviously they'll be an explanation. Oh, yeah, yeah, because I know because Laurence Fishburn said he's not in it. Yeah, well, he that they never reached out to him. I think it's very interesting. But somebody broke down the trailer. There's actually like average the the theory is this is actually like a reboot of the Matrix, right. That's why it's called resurrections. Sure, because it looks like they are almost like the Matrix is trying to correct its mistake from the last one. Like now everyone's getting all it's almost like, because you see that the one shot of everyone just kind of glued to their phones, it's like this is their way of this is the matrix is way of like. Well, apparently there's like a some my still shot at like there's a picture of neo when he's like already dead, like the NEA that died, and what the eyes and shit. Oh, okay, and the machines are working on them. HMM. I got Reay watch a trailer see that by somebody I told and I was like, Oh, and they alviously have picture of Trinity and you see that in the trailer. Like yeah, so it's kind of like, Huh, and it's like everyone's taken like prescription blue pills. So it's like they are the Matrix is trying to, yeah, unfuck itself. The architect always said there's always been different version. Yeah, that he was like what, like the seventh version or something random. MPH has his therapist, which I'm interested in, nph being a bad guy, because I kind of feel like he's going to end up being a bad guy if he's the one prescribing the pills. Maybe it's all very interesting. I'm super pomp addicts still hard thinking about no, the trailer was really good. I'm and it seems like neo is kind of or Tom is trying to almost like he's starting to rediscover or remember, like he has...

...that handshake with trinity and they're like do we know each other and he's like that's deja vous. Yeah, it's deja vous, yeah, it's glitch in the Matrix. The thing is, and he doesn't have the same name. He does. It's Tomas tray as Tom Thomas Anderson. Was His name? senters, God damn it. Yeah, it was Tom so, but somebody in the trailer, somebody in the trailer, calls him Neo. Well, yeah, I knew that. So I didn't realize it's Thomas Anderson in the first one. Yeah, motherfuck. I watched the first one like a million. I have never really cut that. It's only in the one scene where the guy at the Fedex guy brings in the phone. Thomas Anderson. Yeah, yeah, just save your humanities. Named Tom Everybody. It just looks so fucking good. It does. It looks like I was really worried this was going to feel like a just a last hail Mary. It looks like they really put a lot of effort into this and you one or two if they're going to rate. Do I mean that Raddo, but like do more if it's successful, if it does well enough, I'm sure they will. Might don't give a shit about money. They really don't know none of those people. They did, they wouldn't be making this because the black Chawskis don't care. Well, Laana doesn't care and you know, Keano does not give a fuck. No money, and I honestly don't think. I don't think they would have gotten as many return sign ons if they didn't like the script. Yeah, Oh, for sure, especially Keano, because he's been real selective of the stuff that he takes these days and he's only taking stuff that he really feels like in work and the ways been because especially we got to think to like from a career stay way with the way he's been crushing it lately. Was John Wick. He doesn't want to take something of these things could ruin that momentum. Yeah, it's true. A bill and Ted Revival wasn't going to hurt that moment. I never saw that was a good I haven't seen it yet either. But either way, like that was low risk, like that was for the fans. That was just something fun to do. Like this, however, like it's a big enough name, big enough property that like, yeah, if this thing fucking flops, then like I something it's going to. I don't think it. I think they'll have all the great aspects of the original, because the third one was horrible. Yeah, that's poortline watchable, and then second one, I is okay, I like it, but third one is horrible. This, the second one, is one of those like if the third one had been really good, you could just write the second one off as filler and not care. Yeah, but because the third one is so bad, it makes the second one feel worse, which, honestly, the third one kind of and I think we talked about this last time, to the third one so bad, it kind of makes you question whether the franchise is even that good. Yeah, like it makes you go like, was the first one actually good or am I just remembering it? Finally seems rushed. Yeah, like Shit, we set up all this stuff in the last one. Now I have to tie off. Yeah, and for a movie called the Matrix, you spend like like ten minutes in the Matrix. Yeah, and like the Weird Matrix Limbo Shit didn't make any sense. The stuff with Mr With agents Smith possessing people didn't make any fucking sense. There was a lot of it. I was like, okay, creative liberties, sure, sci Fi spenttion of disbelief, but that's what I want. If of Lana's it reason why there's only one director this time? Yeah, it's because they want to take it in different direction. They had conflicting issues. I could very well be I don't. Also trying to think, like, have they directed anything together in a while? Period? They directed anything period, like either one of them? Let's see the show skis and stake a look here. So the last thing they directed together was Jupiter ascending, six years ago. Wow, that was something. That movie sucks. Yeah, but that was the last thing. Everything they've directed they've directed together till now. This one's just laana H so I don't know what. What's the other one? Name Lily? I don't know what Lily's doing, but so we'll see. You'll be interested. They've been work...

...for Lily's been doing TV, this show called work in progress, which I haven't seen or heard of for that matter. So she's been doing that. They were both doing that. Sense eight show sends. It was actually I liked sense A. I never never saw it. I heard it was pretty good. They just canceled after one season. That's the show. Know, there's two seasons, but only Laana did season two. As there two seasons. Those are two seasons. I know. I watched all that. Then there was a Christmas special and the Christmas special was the last thing they did and I never watched a Christal so season. The Christmas special is the first part of season two. Okay, so, yeah, so there was a season after that that was just Laana. So I kind of feel like lily maybe just stepping away from directing or has been doing this working probus sin sake since I the first season was really good. I meant to watch it. Ever, did that's still on Netflix? I wonder? I think so. Yeah, but yeah, so, yeah, I want to see that one, to see the new Matrix. When I first heard Matrix for I was like I could, I don't give a shit, and up until now I was like really, don't care, there's not going to happen. And then that that website think you showed me last week, I was like, Oh, this is really fucking creative and that is trailer blew me up the fuck things. It's like it's been so long since the Matrix came out. Yeah, let because three came out in they both came with three, both came out into three. I was both were in three. came out the same year. They released them back to back, to January and then December, some shit like January, know, thember. So reloaded came out, the second one came out May. The third one came out in November. So they released a couple months apart from each other. Jesus Christ, that I think. That, I think was the other thing that hurt too, is like there was no time to sit on the second one really process. It was like boom, here's to boom here street. It was like, wow, just two waves of crap, backtoback. I didn't realize it came out that close to I didn't either. Now. Well, also the Animatrix, because remember, the animatrix came out right before to. That was good because it was a promotional thing for to and it was great. I really liked the animatrix. I forgot they worked. I'll be for vendetta. That's right, they wrote it, they didn't direct it, but they all said they did. Speed for the next thing they directed together with speed Racer Wolf, they produced Ninja assassin, which wasn't bad. They did Cloud Atlas, which I've never seen but I've heard mixed things about. And then I didn't see Jimiter sending her it was power crap, though. Pile Carpe Serius. I never watched it, and that atlas. I've seen like ten minutes of it. Apparently it's pretty crazy wild, like is that the one with like Tom Hanks and Halle Berry and it's like them throughout time or something like? So get it's like so weird and you're like Huh, ten minutes, I know. I know the Rick and Morty joke about it. And that's about it. So now trailer looks solid. Yeah, maybe just one needs to direct it, I guess. Yeah, maybe, maybe, but, like I said, Lily's also working on this. Whatever this TV show is so well, my thing is about in the trailer he gets his power, like remember the first one? He's discovers his powers like at the very, very end, and it's like basically stopping bullets. Like yeah, he jumps in the Smith pretty much, but this one he's like fucking like stopping a rocket and he will remember it. At the end of two he learns that he can like blow up sentinels with his mind in the real world. Oh yeah, that's right. And then that becomes which that was the part too, where I was like how that doesn't make any fucking sense, and that's a whole thing in three, where he's able to just use his powers in the real world house, like a just didn't make any fucking sense. So but yeah, you see him like stop bullets. It looks like it's not on purpose,... he doesn't realize he's doing it when he does it. So I think he's yeah, it's going to be him slowly rediscovering himself life. Yeah, I don't know, it's going to be interesting. Like I said, to introduced some weird fucking concepts and mythology. That's like, well, now that's the rule we're playing, and so I had almost kind of hope that this would turn out to be like a like dark fate was for terminator, kind of a retcon like it, let's pretend to a three didn't happen. But I guess they're they're leaning into their established cannon. You know, sometimes it feels like life really gives you the raw deal.

So so insomnia, the company that made the two spider man games. Well, they put out a trailer for spider man to okay, which is going to have raven the hunter and Venom. Okay. The trailers fucking dope, and they're also doing a wolverine game in the same style. I wonder that's going to be any good. I don't know. And Show you these trade we always fucking game to think over and be any good. I don't know. Will be stress for you. The Spider I'll show the spider man trailer second, but Wolverine Trailers just a teaser. But it's just kind of the way of saying, like here's the company that made these two spider man games, now we're doing a wolverine game because like special thing about spidermans. I rent go building the swing, building the building. Yeah, well, vern can not do that. Yeah, so I've wrap my back, but but I also like I have no reason not to not trust the company either, because they have hey, I mean I'm never personally. I don't have playstation right, but I mean these games have hit. They are. Yeah, if you get a chance, you know playstation, but if you ever get a chance to, well, I'm going to have to buy one because they're remaking nice older probably yeah, they are. I had to just figure it a way around to get my wife to Lenny by. They didn't make a good like Superman game. People have been asking for years. I don't I don't think it's gonna happen anytime soon. When now? And that's like the last sever was so bad. Sixty four. That's sixty four game was unplayable, unfinished garbage. Yeah, it was bad. So it's kind of like how they've done a couple since then, but none of them were really and also, look, it's Superman. Yeah, it's like super easy at that point. Bullet proof. If he can fly around laser beams, strong, super fast, it's like worth the challenge. They should almost do a game to where you can decide if you want to go good or bad, but almost be like Superman. Yeah, like like start out with him like as a kid and then just geak. They kind of did that a little bit with the video game for spider man three. We're like, as you would do like more aggressive shit, the black suit would kind of start to take over and then, as you would go more good, like you'd be able to control the black suit a bit more. And so, yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing that all. Here's the wolverine trailer. Hm, very logan esque. Yeah,...

...very and it's so I don't know, because right now there's kind of a big question with because like there's the marvel avengers game. It's on playstation or that's bad? Head. It's not bad. It's not great, like it's not what people thought it was. Going to because it doesn't have any in the voice actors. None of the voice actors. That all the all the which makes sense, because for cost, yeah, if they, if they made it them that have to pay them more. Well, now I that like the faces don't look alike. They it looks like just off from what it's supposed to look like. And the demo was really bad. Okay, so the Bait, the Batea Demo because they were trying to keep everything really close to the chest. So it was really minimalist and everybody was kind of like, the fuck is those? But they said, they said before the game you came out, like if you get this on playstation, you will get the DLC for spider man free. It's still hasn't been released and they keep pushing back when it's going to come out. And when you like a spider man in the game and it's just the game. The game is fine, it's not awful, it's just not great. It's got very low replayability, Yascha. But people have been wondering if the spider man they introduced is going to be this version of spider man or something totally different, because there's some timeline stuff that doesn't make sense. If it does, Gotcha, but anyway. So here's the trailer for Spider Man Too, which people thought Miles Morales was spider man to it, which the spin off. This is the actual sequel to the first game. Okay, Gotcha, Gotchatcha, but as long as I can remember, I haven't looked for an equal, one who would push one who even beat me. All I found it disappointment when one of you finally give me what I desired. Let two, twenty three. So pissed about that. Twenty because, because the first game came out in two thousand and eighteen. And so I put out a tweet the other day. I saw it the venom. Yeah, it was like, pull... up and read it. But yeah, it was a because they because they moved the date for the venom movie again. Did they really back to its original original date? Let's see what's Ober First, I think, because that was it's a rigid or October fourth. That was its original date and then it was moved. It was move further away, then closer than further way, than closer than further way. Now it's back to its original date and it's like you don't even fucking know when this shits airing anymore. Damn that I'm not saying. That thing is on her facebook there has found it. Yeah, Sony, let's drop the no way home trailer at the last possible chance for the movie comes out. Also, Sony, here's a trailer for spider man too, but it's not coming out until two thousand and twenty three. Still, Sony, we have no fucking idea when releasing venom anymore. We have no fucking idea or at leasing venom any yeah, I'm a little salted. That game is still another two years out, but they haven't put a writ and they haven't put a release date for Wolverine Yet. So it's kind of how I can mill do that to me? I don't know either, and it but I'm excited to at least make it because they've teased venom in the first two spider man games anyway, so it's good to see their finally following through on it. Just story wise. There's two spider man games are fucking incredible and like the design of the layout of New York is at it. I really loves it. It's crazy, like it's crazy there's that much detail in lad. They're people who have like posted online like Oh, there's this like Gazebo and a little corner park over here in New York in the game and the Guy Looks out as fucking apartment window and he's like yeah, it's right there, I can see it. That's while. It's fucking crazy see the only game. I'm excited about it. That's why I bought my xboxes Halo and finish this Halova. So I heard they're doing it's going to be campaign only at first. So I heard this today. What I've heard is that's gonna be like war zone, that you can get war zone for free. Okay, like the multiplayers can be like free and then you can buy the campaign. Okay. So I'm buying the campaign regardless. I'll sure. Halo to me has always been I mean it's a multiplayer. That's what put it on the Mat. Yeah, but it should be like a battle royale type. Oh Yeah, sure. So I'm super fucking stoked and I really enjoyed the campaign of the first three. Other great love for was I beat it in a day odst really never played odst. Oh des He's good as it. Okay, I like to reach a lot. Actually I really liked reach. That's the only one I never played. Oh really, yeah, reaches, reach to school, because reach introduced a lot of mechanics. I was like, why wasn't this here from the beginning? Yeah, like power ups, like being able to like sprint. It's like, Oh, thank God. Well, I think the thing I was like they didn't know what they had when they made the original. No, they did not. And then like, for example, and the original the pistols, like the most broken weapon of all to me, the mini sniper rifle, like he kills somebody in two shots. Yeah, I've seen it happen. It had multiple times since sniper level zoom and you want to kill people with it, like damn. So they fix that. Yeah, and so on too, came out. They fix that completely. Ire was AH, the pit pistole, because you know it's bad, you know it's broke when everybody is like starts out their salt rifle, but everybody swetches to their pistol. Yeah, right, I liked in three they they change the needler. Yeah, because that was pretty powerful too. It was, and you could do a wheeled it. Yeah, Whoa? But a lot of people would do a wheeled it and then what's your or what you could do is you could do a will that you could do the needler with like a fucking plasma pistol. Yeah, charge the plasma pistol, shoot it, knock down the shield, just needle the fuck out of somebody. My God. So in three they were like, okay, the needle are still powerful as fuck, but you can only have one jipper. Watch red versus blue now. So I fucking love red versus blue. With on Netflix we get a chance. So...

...when the transition into two, from two, three, the general is telling them all right, guys, so here's the old need learn. They puts in a ward hog because unloads the clip and they all stick the needler to the war hog. You just go poof. Yes, now here's the new needler. One needle. Who I really was on the new need again? It's so fucking while I love that game. So like we used to have before xbox live, we used to have like land parties in my place. Oh Yeah, sixteen people just fucking. We'd have like twelve hour matches. We had a twelve hour match. Oh yeah, when Halo three came out my freshman year of college, and so the university that I was at that year had a like a cabin because we were, you know, kind of the Appalachian Mountain areas. So we had a cabin over by this lake that belonged to the university that clubs could run out for parties. So when Halo three dropped, they the video game club was one big massive cabin full land party. And then in the guy's dorm where I was at, down in the in the Lounge Lounge area, like yeah, people would bring there. We would have like a once a month. Everybody bring your xboxes and and Wifi's and X and TV's down. was ruined the Internet for the rest of the building for a few hours and have a massive sixteen person land party. And Yeah, that was that was the shit. We much fun. We have a game against I was on the fourth floor, my buddy lived on the eighth floor. We'd be playing against each other and that was just I was great. I fucking that's so much. I just I love that game so much. It brings back so many can memories. That's why I'm like, it's a whole reason I bought my xbox on my Halo Spec to come out. Originally, when the xbox dropped, yeah, and they pushed it back. Probably good for them to do that because, Realiste Lee, you think about their wasn't there so shortage on Xbox? Is that like what had been pointless? Yeah, normally you would want to have like a big game like that at launch, but they were already having a hard time. He even playstation to this point. If you want to ps five, good fucking luck. Yeah, I'd love one. But one day I spent I spent all morning when I when I heard it was going hun sale, because I do on twitter. They said, hey, it's going to be on sale, a best buy playstation X. I literally refresh the website from nine am until four PM and tell because they release playstation first. Yeah, then they release the XBOX. Oh Really? Yeah, okay, so, because if they release both on the same time, the flight would have crashed. They're lucky didn't crash the way it did. Yeah, but also they sold out and like ten minutes. Yeah, yeah, I was like, Huh, I. Well, I got them on the second go around. I get out, did you? Yeah, first, I know. First, I got on the second go around. So just come on, refreshing like a fucking want this. My little brother has one. I'm going to get one at some point because like one of the things, one of things a school is a bunch of the games that dropped for playstation when the new one came out. So like like spider man, avengers and all that. If you have them on Psfour, you can upgrade to the psfive version for free, which is I think it's really cool. Yeah, that's why they was cyberpunk. Yeah, cyberpunk, because the whole reason, honestly, the whole ry. I wanted cyberpunk so bad because they've created that game forever. Yeah, I still haven't played it. I still really want to and I like I bought it knowing because I had the the three hundred and sixty or whatever was it, I can't remember one. The xbox one. Yeah, and I had that and I was like Xbox, xbox, or six Y xbox. Goddamn, some make it's dumb. Yeah, but I had the one. But I knew going in buying cyberpunk two thousand and seventy seven, I was like this is going to be bad. It's not. The game is not. They can say all at once like it should work on back words, can pelt. It's not. This game is made and like knowing that I got, you know, cyberpunk. I was I was having some issues, but yeah, I was like, okay, I expected that going in. People were like trashing it, the game. I was like did you guys?...

Like they kind of everybody kind of forced their hand, like fucking released the game because they've been people be waiting for years and people wouldn't stop bitching about it's this it fine. Fuck, here's what I hear. And it was only not and it wasn't done yet. This is superman sixty four all over again. They put out an unfinished game, I mean but like, so I played it and then like a week later, like I foundly got my xpot and I was so like, it's just smooth. It was smooth on the xbox series, ass or whatever the fuck it is. There's the new the next Gen. Yeah, I was staying, there's smooth, no issues at all. And that got so much bad rap on playstation that they pulled it from the thing. I'm like, yeah, it doesn't work. It's not going to work on the old gen systems. Like yeah, you guys, force these people. Everybody forced this company to do this. That was the problem I had with bad man Arkham night, because it was they. They rendered that with the unreal with unreal engine four, and but the game itself, both in detail and scale, was so massive most PCs couldn't handle it. So steam wound up just refunding everybody and it wasn't available on on PC for a while. Really. I think it is now, but from long time you couldn't get it on pc because it's the PC technology at that point just wasn't quite where it needed to be to render a game of that detail that big. It just it was very irritating me. How like, if you read between the lines, you knew it wasn't going to work on the old gen systems. Yeah, like you knew that. Like you're like, okay, like this is what they're kind of saying. They're only saying this because they're wanting they're basically have a gun to their head right now. And then when I have it, I was like, yeah, that's what happened. I bought my xbox, perfectly fine. Same thing out of my Buddi's playstation. He had it on his original playstation about the five perfectly fine. Yeah, that's why they showed on the two trailers we watched one the playstation at the bottom and said like like rendered on a playstation five, like this is what it's going to look like on a psfive. Yeah, which is awesome and I want one so fucking bad. But yeah, you can't always put the newest shit on an older unit expected to work. This same windows Vista. Okay, I got a windows vista was problematic for a lot of people, but most people will. What you would do is you get a new operating system. You did install on your old computer. Well, Windows Vista really wasn't made to run on the old computer to that point. So they would put this new, leaps and bounds more advanced operating system on their old beige computer and wonder why it didn't work right. Me, I went out and bought a new computer and I'd never had a problem with Windows Vista because I bought a computer that was made to run it. Sometimes you just got a fucking upgrade. People. Yeah, people don't realize that, but they'll rush you out to get the new, brand new Goddamn iphone as soon as it gets released. We hope you enjoyed this week's episode of the Basement Lounge.
