Metro Exodus leaves Valve - Steams versus Epic Games

Metro Exodus leaves Valve – Steams versus Epic Games

Metro Exodus leaves Valve – Steams versus Epic Games

The digitally distributed PC version of Metro Exodus will be an Epic Games Store exclusive game. Epic Games and Deep silver announced this on Monday. The game will be exclusive till 2020 and it will be sold for 49,95 which is 10 dollars cheaper than its price on Steam.

Deep silver will also release Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux to the Epic Games store later this year. Of course Steam, Valve said that the last minute shift from Steam to the Epic Games store is unfair. They released a statement saying “We think the decision to remove the game is unfair to Steam customers, especially after a long pre-sale period. We apologize to Steam customers that were expecting it to be available for sale through the February 15th release date, but we were only recently informed of the decision and given limited time to let everyone know.”

Tim Sweeney the founder and CEO of Epic had the following to say: “Metro Exodus’ is amazing and is deservedly one of the most anticipated PC titles of 2019. We are partnering with Deep Silver to launch ‘Metro Exodus,’ underpinned by Epic’s marketing support and commitment to offering an 88% revenue split, enabling game creators to further reinvest in building great games and improving the economics of game stores for everybody.”

The CEO of Deep Silver Klemens Kundratitz had the following to say about the move “Epic’s generous revenue terms are a game changer that will allow publishers to invest more into content creation, or pass on savings to the players. By teaming up with Epic we will be able to invest more into the future of Metro and our ongoing partnership with series developer 4A Games, to the benefit of our Metro fans.”

Customers who pre ordered Metro Exodus will still get their game regardless of the digital retailer they purchased it on. This will be the third big game that has seemingly left the Valve store to relist on Epic Games store. There was Telltale’s the Walking dead from Skybound Games and the Division franchise from Ubisoft also went to epic.

Epic Games takes 12% of game revenue while Steam actually takes 20 to 30%, which makes Epic Games a lot more appealing to publishers and developers. Epic Games actually went as far as to revise their refund policy to better compete with Steams policy.

Metro Exodus will be out on Playstation 4, Windows PC and XboX One on February 15th. And it’s a very anticipated game. Metro Exodus is based on the novels from Dmitry Glukhosky which have the same name. In the latest version, players will leave the metro and travel by rail across the continent to the east.  And a lot of things happen as in any game.

Did you pre order the game? Let me know in the comments below.

SAG Awards Big Moments were Black Panther and Bradley Cooper

SAG Awards Big Moments were Black Panther and Bradley Cooper

The SAG awards took place and Black Panther won big.

The cast of Black Panther won for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a motion picture at the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards. The star of the movie Chadwick Boseman had the following to say about the success of the super hero movie: “We knew that we had something special, that we could create a world that exemplified a world that we wanted to see.”

Amazon also had a pretty decent night when “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” took home 3 awards which included top performance by an ensemble in a comedy series. Another notable win and acceptance was by Emily Blunt who made her husband John Krasinski emotional with her first SAG win for performance by a female actor in a supporting role for “A Quiet Place”. Blunt had the following to say “The entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly. You are a stunning filmmaker. I’m so lucky to be with you and to have done this film with you.”

Mahershala Ali, who has been getting a lot of Oscar buzz also won for Male actor in a supporting role for his part in Green Book. Of course Rami Malek also won for his role in Bohemian Rhapsody. A very beautiful moment was when Alan Alda was honoured with a lifetime achievement award by Tom Hanks. Alan said the following: “It may never have been more urgent to see the world through another person’s eyes than when the culture is divided so sharply. Actors can help, at least a little, just by doing what we do. And the nice part is it’s fun to do!”

Jason Bateman also had some advice in his acceptance speech for up-and-coming actors “You’re just one job away, you’re plenty talented and hang in there,”

What was also eye catching was that Bradley Cooper brought his mom Gloria Campano as his date to the awards. Cooper was nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor for his part in A star is born which he co-wrote and directed.

Cooper said the following about his movie: “I spent about 15 years going from movie to movie to movie. And then I hit 39 and I stopped and I said, ‘What do I really want to do?’ I want to tell Joseph Merrick’s story in The Elephant Man. So I did that for a year,” He went on to say: “Then this story came to me, A Star Is Born, and then I spent the next four years doing that. And the one thing that I know in the future is: It’s worth all the time to dedicate, even if one piece of art comes out of it in a half a decade, that would still be incredible as long as I can feel like it’s the movie I wanted to make, which is this movie.”

This was a good night filled with a lot of stars. Do you agree with all the awards given?

Naomi Osaka “I felt hollow and like a Robot”

Naomi Osaka “I felt hollow and like a Robot”

Naomi Osaka has won the Australian Open and she now has the world at her feet.

Osaka went head to head with Kvitova in an exciting final match.

Naomi Osaka in September won her first Grand Slam title in New York. And in just a few months later she is in Melbourne just after her 21st birthday and took the Australian open. This time around she wasn’t facing Serena Williams but it was still a match worth watching.

Osaka had the following to say after her victory over Petra Kvitova: “I’m not sure if it’s feeling grown up, or being able to dissociate my feelings. You know how some people get worked up about things? That’s a very human thing to do. Sometimes I feel like I don’t want to waste my energy doing stuff like that. In the third set of my match today, I literally just tried to turn off all my feelings. I just felt kind of hollow, like I was a robot. I was just executing my orders – I just did what I’ve been practising my whole life in a way.”

When hearing those words, one might think she has gone down a dark path with it, but when you are a real athlete it seems that those are the moments you crave for. When you can do exactly what you practiced.

Osaka has become a real star due to her ability to win when it really matters. Just last year March in Indian Wells, Osaka won her first tour title. Naomi Osaka won over a lot of fans when she delivered an acceptance speech that she called “the worst acceptance speech of all time.” Naomi went from number 72 in the world to an international sensation in a very short time.

Osaka is an amazing player and with the help of her coach Sascha Bajin, Osaka has been able to tap into her explosive power even more. Bajin had the following to say about Naomi “From the very beginning, she was a big hitter. I didn’t have to teach her how to hit the ball or anything. Maybe it was a little bit more like telling her there are other things out there than just hitting very hard. We worked on her angles. We worked on just a little bit more of everything – slicing, I wanted her to come in a little bit more.”

Osaka also has a very close bond to her father who she refers to as her mental pillar. Osaka is the youngest world number one since Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark reached the top in 2010. Naomi had the following to say about her future plans: “I’m going to have to play Indian Wells again. Of course, I’d love to win that again and then play Miami and hopefully win that. People who can win Indian Wells and Miami back to back, it’s usually the best players in the world. That would be my next goal. Yeah, I feel like I’m going with the flow. That’s sort of been my motto my whole life ….”

I for one love her passion and power game. I look forward to what the future holds for her.

Roger Stone is indicted and out on bail

Roger Stone is indicted and out on bail

Roger Stone is indicted and out on bail

A grand jury has indicted Roger Stone with regards to the Russia investigation. Indicating that he was coordinating with Trump officials with regards to Wikileaks stolen emails. It seems that Roger Stone was looking for stolen emails that could damage Trump’s opponents while in coordination with Trump campaign officials.

Roger Stone is a former advisor to President Donald Trump. Stone was arrested by the FBI at his home in Florida and indicted by a federal grand jury on seven counts.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has found copies of Roger Stone threatening Randy Credico who is a witness in the investigation. And thus Stone was charged with Obstruction, giving false statements and witness tampering.

The indictment included the following “After the July 22, 2016, release of stolen (Democratic National Committee) emails by Organization 1, a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign. STONE thereafter told the Trump Campaign about potential future releases of damaging material by Organization 1.”

It continues to say: “During the summer of 2016, STONE spoke to senior Trump Campaign officials about Organization 1 and information it might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign. STONE was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by Organization 1.”

Stone, after being released on a 250.000 dollar bond had the following to say to the media: “After a two-year inquisition, the charges today relate in no way to Russian collusion, WikiLeaks collaboration or any other illegal act in connection with the 2016 campaign. I have made it clear I will not testify against the President. Because I would have to bear false witness against him.”

The attorney for the President Jay Sekulow, gave the following statement about the indictment. “The indictment today does not allege Russian collusion by Roger Stone or anyone else. Rather, the indictment focuses on alleged false statements Mr. Stone made to Congress.”

Stone has publicly maintained that he did not know Wikileaks would release beforehand. That lie which he also told to Congress is at the basis for his indictment. Stone was a key member of Trumps campaign and Stone claims that he was communicating with Trump on a weekly basis during Trumps campaign. It has become clear that Trump and Stone knew that Russia was behind the hacks.

When WikiLeaks started publishing Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s hacked emails, a Trump campaign associate texted Stone “well done,” I am curious to see what else will come out of this and what the final result will be.

A look at Ted Bundy after 30 years

A look at Ted Bundy after 30 years

A look at Ted Bundy after 30 years

The world is refocusing on Ted Bundy after 30 years. Yes, it has been 30 years since Florida executed one of the most prolific serial killers in history Ted Bundy. He died on the electric chair on January 24th in 1989.

His despicable crimes inspired a wide array of books and films, but as with most things, a lot gets lost in translation. So it seems smart to revisit his heinous acts to go over the details.  It is with that in mind that the new Bundy documentary came into being.

Witnesses who were present at his execution say that he didn’t seem distressed or in panic as he approached the electric chair or when he was strapped in. A journalist who was present stated “I don’t remember any moment like this in my life. This was a serial killer in front of you unlike any we’ve known in our time… He was confident. His demeanor was puzzling to all of us and I’m sure what was going through everybody’s head in there was, ‘Why is he smiling at us?’”

Another journalist said “The best way I could describe his demeanor in the room was almost like a performer on closing night.”

Bob Dekle who was the state attorney who prosecuted Ted Bundy said he saw the same demeanor from Bundy at his trial. “It was all about him. He wanted as much attention as he could possibly have. He wasn’t right, but he wasn’t mentally ill. He knew the difference between right and wrong; he just didn’t care.”

Bundy committed a streak of crimes which went from the west coast to north Florida in 1978. He attacked four women in a Florida State University Sorority house, killing two of them and the other 2 survived. Bundy fled from the house and then attacked his fifth victim nearby. A few days later he murdered a 12 year old girl in Lake City. Days before his execution Bundy confessed to murdering many others, he tallied his death count to 36. Many say that he confessed to these murders in an attempt to delay his execution date.

With the new look into Bundy, Netflix has decided to release their own documentary which combines old footage and taped conversations with Bundy. The documentary on Netflix seems to have enough triggers in it that Netflix actually warns viewers by stating “Maybe don’t watch it alone”. The director of the show had the following to say: “There’s a lot of serial killing in this country, and yet the name ‘Bundy’ always floats to the top. I wanted to dive into that and understand why. Why is it Bundy with this perverse, almost rock star-like status?”

With regards as to why he made the documentary he had the following to say: “My goal was to give people the emotional ride of being inside of the mind of this killer. But we quickly realized that Bundy is an unreliable narrator, and certain stuff needed to be contextualized.”

Getting a look into the mind of a madman might help us understand what went wrong and what we need to be careful of.

New York Passes New Abortion Law

New York Passes New Abortion Law

New York Passes New Abortion Law

New York has finally decriminalized abortion and has decided to protect access to abortion even if Roe Versus Wade is overturned.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill that protects abortion rights in the state. And it was on the 46th anniversary of Roe V. Wade, the law to protect women’s access to abortion if the historic case is overturned.

Governor Andrew Cuomo had the following to say about the bill called New York’s Reproductive Health Act “Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion. With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body,”

The new law will not only ensure access to abortions but it will also remove abortions from the state’s criminal code. This would in turn protect doctors and medical professionals who perform abortions from being criminally prosecuted.

The new law also covers late-term abortions. Under the new law, abortions can be performed after 24 weeks if the fetus isn’t viable or if the mothers life is in danger.

Cuomo had the following to say about this: “It’s about the health and safety of the mother and it’s always been the point where the conservatives wave the flag, they want to roll back Roe v. Wade — this is not gray here it’s black and white.”

The State Assembly speaker Carl Heastie had the following to say about the new law: “While the administration in Washington continues its assault on women’s reproductive rights, the Assembly Majority remains dedicated to fighting for a woman’s right to choose. The bills we passed today ensure New Yorkers can control their family planning decisions, have access to the reproductive healthcare they need and will not be discriminated against for their choices. With our new partners in the Senate, we have finally seen this legislation pass both houses and signed into law on the anniversary of the historic Roe v. Wade decision,”

Of course not everyone is happy with the new law stating concerns about if the fetus dies as a result of an assault on the woman there would be no prosecution.  With statements like “Being assaulted and losing your baby is not a woman’s choice,”

Roe V. Wade is a law that came into being in the 1960’s because one-sixth of all pregnancy and childbirth related deaths were because of illegal abortions. But thanks to Roe it has become a safe procedure anyone can have access to.

This is a good step forward in my eyes, what do you think?

Chris Brown is accused of Rape in Paris

Chris Brown is accused of Rape in Paris

Chris Brown has found himself in some new trouble.

Apparently the singer was arrested in Paris and released because he was accused of aggravated rape and drug violations, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office. A source stated “the investigation is not closed at this stage and continues under the authority of the Parquet of Paris.”

It seems that Brown isn’t facing any charges though and his attorney has denied all allegations. Chris Brown went on Instagram to say that these claims are false and denies the allegations saying “This B!tch Lyin’.” And “I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR…… THIS IS FALSE AND A WHOLE LOT OF CAP! NNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!! FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!” Chris and his attorney said they are planning on filing a defamation lawsuit against their accuser in retaliation.

This of course isn’t the first time Brown has found himself in hot water. His most publicized run in with the law was his arrest in 2009 for his vicious beating of his then girlfriend Rihanna.  It’s worth mentioning that Rihanna went on Oprah and said she forgave Chris and that he “Made a mistake because he needed help.”

Chris Brown came onto the scene in 2005 at the age of 16 and a lot of people considered him the new Michael Jackson. But with his assault case, the public’s perception of him was changed for the worse and it has continued to haunt him for a long time.

And his beef with other recording artists and his time in rehab as well as his return to jail for violating probation. It was then reported that Chris Brown has bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder and drug use. A letter from the facility stated “Mr. Brown will also require close supervision by his treating physician in order to ensure his bipolar mental health condition remains stable. It is not uncommon for patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar II to use substances to self-medicate their biomedical mood swings and trauma triggers.”

Some of Brown’s other run ins with the law are: He was accused of threatening a woman with a gun in his home in 2016. His ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, got a restraining order against him in 2017, saying that he threatened. In May of 2018 an unknown woman supposedly filed a civil lawsuit against Brown stating that she was sexually assaulted at the singers home by one of his friends. And in July he was arrested in Florida, for an outstanding felony arrest warrant which he got after punching a photographer at a Tampa nightclub in 2017.

Brown decided to open up on some of his issues in the 2016 film “Welcome to my life: The official Chris Brown Documentary.” In which he said: “I went from being on top of the world, No. 1 songs, being kind of like America’s sweetheart to being Public Enemy No. 1.”

And for some people, that label never went away. What do you think of Chris Brown? Let me know in the comments.

FOX News kills Ruth Bader Ginsburg and she cameos in the LEGO movie

FOX News kills Ruth Bader Ginsburg and she cameos in the LEGO movie

Fox decided to start their day in an amazing fashion by declaring Ruth Bader Ginsburg dead.

Fox News decided to kill Ginsburg by airing a graphic of her with the dates 1933 to 2019, which implies that the Supreme Court Justice died. However the 85 year old is still alive and kicking although she did have surgery in December for early stage lung cancer.

Eventually someone noticed it after which the co-host Steve issued an apology saying “A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a date on it,” he continued by saying “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. It was an accident.”

A Fox News spokesperson later released a statement saying.”This was a technical error that emanated from the graphics team,” The question is, why would that graphic exist in the first place?

Ginsburg became the second woman to be appointed to the United States Supreme Court in 1933. And at 85 years old, Justice Ginsburg is also the oldest serving judge on the Supreme Court bench. Recently however she has become somewhat of a pop culture phenomenon. With a recent documentary about her and a biopic called On the Basis of Sex. Her fame has earned her the title of “Notorious RBG”.

And from recent reports it seems that she will make a cameo in the upcoming Lego Movie 2 as a lego minifigure with a gavel and robe. It seems the movie wont be using her real voice but she has given the filmmakers permission to use her likeness.

The producers of the movie had the following to say about her character “trying to think of people who should be immortalised in Lego and who seem fun at weddings. And we were thinking, ‘who’s the last person you would think to see in a Lego film as a minifig?’ – Ruth Bader Ginsburg!”

I have to say that I love the idea of using a supreme court justice as a lego figure. Makes a lot more sense and could have a very positive impact. Good on Lego.

Cardi B and Tomi Lahren Get into it on Twitter

Cardi B and Tomi Lahren Get into it on Twitter

Cardi B and Tomi Lahren Get into it on Twitter

It seems that Cardi B and Tomi Lahren are going in on each other on Twitter over the government shutdown. The verbal argument started when Cardi B posted a video on Instagram going at President Trump and his administration’s decision to order employees back to work without pay.

She also complained about the fact that the government shut down for an extended period of time and that Trump was over funding for his border wall. Saying things like: “Our country is in a hellhole right now,”and “All for a (expletive) wall. … This is crazy.”

And in true Cardi B fashion the video went viral. And it was at that point that Tomi Lahren decided to react.

She said the following: “Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020”

And Cardi b being Cardi b of course didn’t back down from the confrontation saying: “Leave me alone I will dog walk you”

After which Tomi replied: “I’m sure you would. Still doesn’t make your political rambling any less moronic. #BuildthatWall”

Cardi b came back with “ You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much .You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!”

Cardi also took the time to reply to someone else who asked how the rapper felt about paying taxes and insurance. To which Cardi had the following to say: “Im paying about 4 million in taxes this year so most likely I am Paying for your insurance ….That’s if your favorite president don’t take my tax money for his wall Mr white bread .”

Tomi couldn’t let that statement slide and decided to weigh in on it as well. “You do realize these high taxes you complain about are the bedrock of the Democratic Party, right? If you want lower taxes and more economic freedom, beware of the party you are rooting for.”

This might seem a bit out of place but it seems that Cardi B stated in an interview with GQ that she loves political science and is obsessed with how the system works.

She went on Instagram to say the following: “A lot of people think I’m dumb, think I’m ghetto because of the way I talk… but just because I’m that it doesn’t make me dumb and one thing I really want y’all to understand about me, I’m a very passionate person when it comes to history and when it comes to political things, and I always been like that,”

I for one love the fact that she is going in like this. Watching drama like this is fun, lets see how it all unfolds.

UFC Fight Night on ESPN Jan 19

UFC Fight Night on ESPN Jan 19

UFC for the first time had a card on ESPN and it was an amazing night with a lot of upsets.

Henry Cejudo shook up the world for another time. In his fight with bantamweight TJ Dillashaw, Cejudo caught Dillashaw off balance and landed a good amount of hits that Dillashaw had no answer for. The referee had to rush in and stop the fight. Cejudo won the fight by TKO in 32 seconds and had successfully defended his title.  Dillashaw of course thought that the referee jumped in too quick, but from the way he went down, there wasn’t much else the ref could do. This win got Cejudo the award for performance of the night.

This was an amazing start for the first UFC card on ESPN. And it went on, there were a total of 8 finishes in 13 fights and an good amount of strong performances.

Conner McGregor also had something to say about the event: “Unlucky T.J on your attempt at Champ. Respect for your weight cut. I have been there and it is not easy. Unlucky Henry on your attempt at fastest K.O in a UFC title fight. I have been there, and I still am. Congrats on the win. Yours truly, The O.G Champ Champ.”

Now of course not every upset was a good one. The ex NFL player Greg Hardy made his debut on the UFC against Allen Crowder as the Co-Main event. Greg actually came out swinging in the first round, but slowed down significantly afterwards as his stamina went down. Crowder on the other hand seemed to be gaining ground as he became more confident.

In the second round, Hardy tried to recapture the momentum and while in a clinch he kneed Crowder’s head. The issue with that was that Crowders knee was down on the canvas, and that means it’s a blatant foul.

The referee tackled Hardy, scolded him after which he disqualified the former NFL player. The audience followed suit and booed him. Hardy was banished from the NFL after domestic abuse charges and his unsavoury behaviour. This loss brings Hardy’s professional MMA record to 3-1, and his UFC record starts out as 0-1.

He had the following to say about the fight “I’m not a cheater. Go ask Tom Brady if I ever cheated all the times I sacked him. 30 years of life, never once have I cheated.”

Another amazing fight was Paige VanZant versus Rachael Ostovich. Paige won with an epic armbar which forced Rachael to submit. Paige hasn’t fought inside the Octagon since her January 2018 loss to Jessica-Rose Clark in her flyweight debut which was her second straight loss. But she made sure to stop the streak in a stunning fashion.  VanZant is actually hoping for a quick turnaround and wants to find a spot on the ESPN card in Arizona in February.
