Now that I have a little more time, I'd like to go into detail as to why this is such horseshit.

-39 Seconds- The implication that the PC release was of the quality standard they intended and that's extremely hard to believe. 1/many
-49 Seconds- Leadership Team is deeply sorry (not at fault), don't blame any specific teams (hold onto this one)

-1m42s- Describes a process of making the game look great on PC and then backsliding to "Old Gen" despite the game being announced before PS4/Xbox hardware was known.
-2m11s- Describes the old gen disk bandwith as "it is what it is" Considering the game got announced before those consoles even shipped, its absurd that the entire game was built so far beyond their possible constraints. Also, those consoles put out stuff like Tsushima late gen.
-2m19s- "-our testing did not show a big part of the issues
you experienced while playing the game" This is probably the worst part. Despite telling you not to blame any specific team, the test / QA team, somehow didn't discover the issues with the game.
You don't need to have worked in Dev or QA to know that the game was flying apart at every level (even on PC). The idea that the bug nightmare that ended up shipping seen for example here went under the radar of a PROFESSIONAL QA TEAM is ridiculous.
-2m58s- Describes daily improvement of last gen console versions, sending out review codes immediately prior to release, but neglects to mention the part where they embargo'd last gen footage so you couldn't see how fucked up it was.
-4m3s- This timeline is actually really funny now that the game is delisted on PS4, as the Free Next Gen Console Update on that platform is more or less Xbox Exclusive now.
-4m24s- "-assuring you that we treat this entire situation very seriously, and are working hard to make it right" They got hit with an investor lawsuit last week and a government regulatory body threat of fines literally 2 days ago. The video timing feels like a response to those
-Not In the Video Not Even One Time- The words crunch or overtime.

More thoughts on 13 sentinels, getting back into it after 10 weeks apart.

1. Mystery file viewer offers a succinct but well documented list of every term, person, location and era in game.
2. Cutscene viewer for every single event, seperated by both total events and per person-
3. Easily able to select older battles to regen your brain overload and re-remember characters archetypes and strengths.
4. Flowchart determining the general gist of the characters playable VN sections, toning down what you need to remember per character.
5. Routinely locks characters down for specific conditions, meaning you usually only have half the cast to choose from, cutting down on possible confusion (and probably narrative events appearing in the wrong order)
6. Recap on every chapter when you start.

This whole fucking thread is completely pointless because it ends up focusing on "educating" content creators about music. Hey dumbasses how do I protect myself from Destiny 2 having some random assholes illegally DMCA claim public domain music or sound effects 1/4
They suggest going through a game's EULA to find the streaming licenses for games that you SUSPECT MAY have copyrighted music (no way to tell) and then suggest the following below. 2/4 Image
Which is useless considering if youtubes taught us anything, jackasses will illegally claim music you've paid for, music that's public domain, or even commonly used sound effects in the background of videos. The whole fucking thing is nonsense. 3/4

so let's break down this Smash 4 Finals situation.

1. Players who made finals were both Bayo players, which is either broken and the tourney organizers refuse to ban, or fine, and the community is a bunch of shit babies about.
2. As a result, the players endured boos and harassment, not just during the grand finals, but the entire lead up in the tournament, both in person at the event and all over social media
3. In response to this, the two have an absolute fuckshow of a match, apparently one threw themself off a ledge because the other fell? To even it up or something? And stalled for time so long that the tourney organizers had to come and tell them on stream to stop fucking around
