I've said it the past, and I'll say it again: I SUPER appreciate these GB news segments, especially now as a mostly daily thing. Sometimes I'll have the time to catch it live, but mostly I listen to it while I work, and it helps me get the industry news in while taking care of shit. Thanks again Grubb and team!

Also, Lucy, you're always awesome. Love seeing you in anything here!

So many reports of Nintendo having finished many games and just waiting to be released. Given their track record of delaying games for a larger splash alongside a hardware alignment (Twilight Princess on Gamecube/Wii and Breath of the Wild on Wii U/Switch)

From a business perspective, if there is a Switch Pro around the corner releasing it alongside these games would be huge for Nintendo.

All that dumb stuff happening online around God of War is just the worst. Capital G Gamers can't just take a sec and touch grass, can they?

Between Grubb's pronunciation and Lucy's accent it took me more time than I'd like to admit that it was "She-Hulk" and not "She Hawk" that they were talking about at one point.

The FF14 billboard drama was that it had modded content on the billboard which players tend to be hush-hush about including unreleased datamined upcoming clothing. The Discord advertised on the billboard had a public NSFW channel filled with screenshots of people using sex mods. There were very recent warnings about disseminating datamined content, and they put it on a billboard with their ingame address on it.

No one has been banned yet and Square Enix has yet to take any actual action on it the screenshots floating around of bans were actually from an older unrelated incident, though people assume they will get banned. It is players primarily laughing/yelling at them for the combo of copyright weirdness and for them showing off mods in a way that may cause backlash for other modders.

Square Enix does not currently act on modders unless they are being very blatant about it and talk about it in-game, so putting them on a billboard caused fears it may result in a crackdown for everyone else.
