Audio: Celebrating 10 years of audio and gaming excellence. It's Major Nelson radio. Larry Hryb: I it's Larry Hryb back here live Major Nelson here with show number 5. 165 of you favorite gaming, gadget and nonsensical podcast. Joining me this week, the regular gang is here. Sitting across from me is Jeffrey. Jeff Rubenstein: Hi, I'm a regular. Larry Hryb: You're regular? Jeff Rubenstein: And I've never been happier. (laughter) Larry Hryb: And then of course, there's Laura. I there, Laura. Laura Massey: Hello. Larry Hryb: It's always nice of you to join us. Laura Massey: Happy to be here. Larry Hryb: It's, uh, it's great. We were, we were, uh, dark last week as we say in the entertainment industry. Meaning we were not on the air. Jeff Rubenstein: On hiatus. Larry Hryb: We were on hiatus. Whatever term you want to use. I was on the road but we're back now. We've got a couple things to catch up on. A lot of game releases, games with gold, system updates, uh ... Laura Massey: So many things. Larry Hryb: All of them. Laura Massey: All of the things. Larry Hryb: All of the things. Laura Massey: Yeah. Jeff Rubenstein: Did we leave a cliff-hanger? I can't remember now. Larry Hryb: I don't know but I was down for the Halo world championship last week. Jeff Rubenstein: Oh. Laura Massey: Yeah. Larry Hryb: I was hosting that, maybe some of you watched it, maybe some of you didn't, you can still watch it. Laura Massey: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Jeff Rubenstein: A lot of you watched it on Twitch. Larry Hryb: Yeah, we gave away a million dollars. Laura Massey: That's crazy. Larry Hryb: That's a lot of money. Laura Massey: That's a lot. Larry Hryb: For these, for these guys playing, playing Halo, right? Laura Massey: You think they split it up evenly? Larry Hryb: Uh, they do, well there's the four players and there's a coach. There's a bunch of other people. Jeff Rubenstein: Is the coach like the cockswin in like rowing ... Like, they're ... You know, the rowers in the Olympics. Most of the people are doing the rowing, but then there's like a shorter person in the front just telling them to row. Larry Hryb: Right. That's got some ... Did you, did you, you know, I think ... Laura Massey: Hm? Larry Hryb: Laura maybe would have ... I think you're too tall for a cockswin. Laura Massey: (laughs) Probably so. Larry Hryb: Yeah, I used to know a cocksin and she was a little bit shorter than you? Laura Massey: Really? Larry Hryb: But, they usually tend to be smaller because they're at the front of the boat. Or the back of the boat. Jeff Rubenstein: They're just sort of like laying down, right? Larry Hryb: Uh, maybe. Maybe, maybe they are now. Laura Massey: To be more aero-dynamic maybe? Larry Hryb: Maybe they are now but back in my day they stood in the water. (laughter) Jeff Rubenstein: Swam along side them. Laura Massey: There was no boat. Larry Hryb: Did you ever do crew? Laura Massey: No, I sure didn't. Larry Hryb: How about you, Jeffrey? Jeff Rubenstein: You know where I grew up, Larry. (laughs) Larry Hryb: Well, in the Skookill, there's a lot of crewing in the Skookill. Jeff Rubenstein: There, there, there is. I was not a part of ... I was not in that neighborhood. We, uh ... (laughter) If it rained a lot, the sewers would back up. Larry Hryb: Of course. Laura Massey: Oh my gosh. Jeff Rubenstein: They have that ... Larry Hryb: That was a different situation, there. Uh, all right, so there we go. Laura Massey: So you've been very busy, Larry. Larry Hryb: My sister was a crew member. Laura Massey: Really? Larry Hryb: She rowed crew, yeah. Laura Massey: Did she row, or did she? Larry Hryb: She rowed, yeah. Laura Massey: Oh okay. Larry Hryb: Yeah, she rowed. Jeff Rubenstein: It was a good picture of the 2008 Olympic rowing team and then there's the cockswin who's ... Larry Hryb: Is he over there? Laura Massey: Oh, over there? Yeah. Jeff Rubenstein: He's like 2 feet smaller. Larry Hryb: All right, enough about that. Go look up crew cocksin ... Jeff Rubenstein: There's literally nothing else to talk about. If there's like a crew podcast, we'd be wrapping it up. Larry Hryb: We're done here. Thank you for tuning into the crew podcast this year. Uh, what are you playing, Laura? I know what you're playing because I see you playing it. Laura Massey: Really? Larry Hryb: Yeah. Laura Massey: I have figured out that I was blocked, that ... Larry Hryb: No, no, no, no. You weren't blocked, you blocked me. Laura Massey: Well, it was everybody. Everybody couldn't see me and I realized that I had accidentally left. Larry Hryb: How long, how long was I telling you that? Jeff Rubenstein: Over a year. Laura Massey: No. Not even a year. Larry Hryb: It was the better part of a year. Laura Massey: No, it couldn't have been more than a couple months. Jeff Rubenstein: I feel like we haven't played together since Diablo. Laura Massey: Hey, I'm still ... I'm still playing Diablo. Larry Hryb: Well that's the comedy, that's the set up. She's playing Diablo. Jeff Rubenstein: I mean, you have gone, she didn't. So, fair play. Laura Massey: Exactly. I have been playing a lot of Diablo. I'm getting ready for the next patch that's going to come out, I'm really excited about it. It's going to add, well it's rumored to add, I don't know if they've released any official but ... Larry Hryb: We don't, we don't, we don't trade in rumors on this show, only facts. We don't like to ... Laura Massey: Okay, well it's rumored to have some pretty cool stuff. Larry Hryb: Sure. Laura Massey: That I'm pretty excited about. Larry Hryb: They always do. Laura Massey: They always do, Blizzard is amazing. They always add something very compellign to each and every one of their updates that brings me back in, and so I was brought in by the last one, new areas and ... Larry Hryb: You were brought in? You never left. Laura Massey: I ... Larry Hryb: You never left. Laura Massey: (laughs) I go because sometimes ... A month or so in between play sessions. Larry Hryb: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Laura Massey: Amazing job, they always bring me back ... Larry Hryb: So that's what you're playing. What else are you playing? Laura Massey: Um, I've been doing a lot of traveling lately so I haven't had a chance to really get in to games that have recently been ... Larry Hryb: So have you seen any movies? Laura Massey: I saw ... What movie did I see recently ... I saw Deadpool. Larry Hryb: Oh? How was that? Laura Massey: It was only okay. Um, I don't know. It just didn't ... It's not my kind of movie I think. It was a little too silly. And a little bit, trying a bit too hard. But I know a lot of people do like it, and have a good time with it but just meh. Personal preference, it didn't really strike my fancy. Larry Hryb: I respect that. Mm-hmm (affirmative). Jeff Rubenstein: Did you see anything, Larry? Larry Hryb: Uh, I saw the Big Shore. Jeff Rubenstein: How was that? Larry Hryb: I enjoyed it. Jeff Rubenstein: It's on my list. Larry Hryb: Uh, I saw The Martian. Laura Massey: Wait, when? The Martian has been out for ... Larry Hryb: Oh ... I made a ... A tactical ... I didn't tell you what happened? Jeff Rubenstein: Oh yeah, this was a [inaudible 00:04:40] Larry Hryb: So we had a ... We had our even last month, remember the event that we did down in San Francisco. Phil was at it, our showcase. Laura Massey: Yeah, the showcase. Larry Hryb: And I had downloaded The Martian, and I had it on my device and I was watching it. I downloaded it on my Surface ... Laura Massey: Was this on the plane? Larry Hryb: Yeah, it was on my Surface or on my iPad. Anyways, I was watching it for the first time and Jeff was busting my ... Everybody on the team was really yelling at me because that's such ... The visuals on that are so grand, and ... Laura Massey: Yes. Larry Hryb: Sweeping that I didn't get a chance to really suck it in on the big screen, I was watching it on my hand-held device. Not a phone, but I think my tablet is what I was watching it on. So I mean, I enjoyed it, but I could see how it would have been epic-ly large. Laura Massey: Yes, I saw that the day it came out. Larry Hryb: I know you did. Laura Massey: I was really looking forward to that movie. Larry Hryb: I remember that. Laura Massey: I'm glad you finally saw it, what did you think? Larry Hryb: I was a little behind, so ... I saw that, what else did I see? I got my, I got my blueray of ... Which I loaned to you, Jeff. Of a ... Jeff Rubenstein: Did I give it back to you? Specter? Larry Hryb: Yeah, you gave it back to me. Jeff Rubenstein: I enjoyed that. I thought that maybe it was underrated. I think that coming after Skyfall, Skyfall was so good that people were like, oh Specter was garbage. Larry Hryb: Yeah, I talked to Stepto, our good friend Stepto, formally on the show, he called me last night because he had finally seen it. Laura Massey: Specter? Larry Hryb: Yeah, he finally saw Specter. You saw it? Laura Massey: Yeah. Larry Hryb: Yeah, we talked about it. Um, so and we were talking a lot about that and then he also saw the Hateful 8, which Jeff and I ... (laughs) Laura Massey: I haven't seen that one. Larry Hryb: Then ... Jeff Rubenstein: What I thought about it was actually in the title. Larry Hryb: It's an acquired taste, I'll say that. I don't believe that it's your taste. Laura Massey: Okay. Larry Hryb: So anyway, there we go. I think I've saw some other things as well. Laura Massey: You told me that you finally saw Star Wars again for the second time. Larry Hryb: Oh, yeah! I was on the plane, the airplane when I was going to New York. Laura Massey: Right. Larry Hryb: When I got back from New York I finally saw that because I sat ... It was probably the happiest, giddiest I've ever been, because I sat on the plane and I'm like, all right. The Seattle to New York flight, depending on the headwinds and tailwinds could be anywhere between 5 hours and 6 and a half hours, who knows. So I sit down and I'm on a long fight, and I'm kind of tabbing through and I'm like, "Wait a minute, when did this come in? There it was, and I just watched it and watched it again. Laura Massey: You watched it twice? Larry Hryb: Yeah I watched it two full times (laughs) Laura Massey: Nice. Larry Hryb: Because it's 2 hours and 14 minutes. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, um, that's funny because a lot of people that day had hit all the airlines and everyone was like, "Oh my God!" It just feels like it hasn't been that long. Larry Hryb: Yeah, so anyways. We were talking about what we were playing though, so do you have anything else that you want to talk about playing? Otherwise we'll get to what Jeff and I are playing. Laura Massey: I haven't started The Division. I've seen lots of people playing that. Have you guys been playing that? Larry Hryb: Yes. Jeff Rubenstein: Yes. Larry Hryb: We have a spot for you on our division. It's right there. Laura Massey: It's right there waiting for me. Larry Hryb: Yeah. Laura Massey: I just need to get the game. Larry Hryb: Yeah. Laura Massey: Okay. Larry Hryb: So we'd love to have you join us, if you want. Laura Massey: I see very good things. Larry Hryb: Do you? Laura Massey: So tell me about it, yeah. Larry Hryb: Uh, well, I guess I'll ... That's the hand-off, that's the segway. Jeff Rubenstein: Do you want to Divide and conquer? Larry Hryb: So yeah, I'm playing The Division, I play quite a bit of it, actually. Jeff and I have been doing a couple of missions together, it's a lot of fun, and it's ... Now you played way more Destiny than I did, Jeff. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah. Larry Hryb: So how would you for the folks, for the millions of folks out there that play Destiny ... Laura, you play Destiny. Laura Massey: Yes I do. Larry Hryb: So how would you compare it to ... Jeff Rubenstein: It doesn't feel like Destiny. Um, it's a third person shooter, and it's just, uh, you know. You're you're not fighting fantastical creatures or anything like that, it's uh, you know. Dudes. But, um, I will say that there's something in that loop where you go into an area, you may do it multiple times, you clean up, you look at your loot, you go back to base, you upgrade and you craft all this ... Stuff like that, so I think that it appeals to a lot of the same folks. It's so tremendously ... And, and, good on them because definitely captured that. Every night, I come home and I'm like, "Oh, I don't know what I want to play. Oh, all of my friends are playing the Division, so ..." I will say one place where they really nailed it is in the drop in drop out. It's so easy to just drop in on someone's uh, in their squad that you could never do before. Larry Hryb: It's funny, we played last night and I don't know who was hosting the game, but it was ... Jeff Rubenstein: It was Liv. Larry Hryb: No, we were joining Lit's game and then he left and the game just kept going. It was very seamless, it was wonderful. Jeff Rubenstein: It scales down and scales up, uh the difficulty, the only thing that will occasionally run anew is if ... Because we're all like in between 10 and 15 level. And if like a level 30 drops in, it's like hey, guess what, you get to do all the work now, because everyone is going to get tough. Larry Hryb: Yeah, so we're playing that and enjoying New York. We got to tenderloin last night, I did. Jeff Rubenstein: See, I didn't know there was, I'm learning part ... Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. [crosstalk 00:09:16] Well, if you've ever done the tenderloin in San Francisco ... Larry Hryb: You know the answer to that. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, uh, but it's, yeah I'm learning parts of town that I didn't necessarily know existed. Larry Hryb: Yeah, so we're, we're, we're, anyway, we're playing a lot of that. With yourself and some other folks. Of course you know Drew and KD and all those other guys. Uh, Liv and Jeff, and so we're in there and you can drop in any time you'd like. I'll say this, I'll say this. If you haven't started playing the Division yet, you do and you want to play with your friends, like I'm recommending Laura does, it takes about an hour and a half to two hours to get though to get ready to join. You've got some stuff you need to do. Play the tutorial, figure out the UI, what's going on here, okay that's what this is, so there you go. Laura Massey: So play it for a few hours and then drop in. Larry Hryb: We'll be there for you. Jeff Rubenstein: You'll know when ... Yeah. It's sort of a preamble to the game. Larry Hryb: Yeah. So that's ... So we're playing that. I started playing a Cell Damage HD. Remember Cell Damage way back on the Xbox way back in the day? Jeff Rubenstein: I don't think I ever played it. [crosstalk 00:10:17] Larry Hryb: So I'm playing that one. Still playing Halo 5 Guardians, Rocket League, we kind of kicked that open. You haven't played Rocket League with us, have you? Laura Massey: I haven't. Larry Hryb: That's right. Laura Massey: Have we talked about the special thing in Rocket League? Larry Hryb: We, well, I tweeted it out but we haven't talked about it. Laura Massey: No. Larry Hryb: Oh, so if you play Rocket League, um, I am thrilled that the folks over at Sionics have asked me to include a Major Nelson flag. So you don't have to do anything to unlock it, I'm just giving it to you, the fair folks. And just wave the, wave your flag and send me a picture on Twitter. Take a screenshot or send it to me over Xbox Live if you want. Um, so I've got my flag up there. Jeffrey, did you add my flag? I think you did. Jeff Rubenstein: I had it before anyone else. Larry Hryb: That's true, because it went live when I had been doing the Division event, so Jeff was able to equip it and I was on the road and I hadn't come home in a couple of days. I expect more ... Laura Massey: So he was the first to equip it? Larry Hryb: Yes, remember I told you guys about this a month ago, remember with it launched and I was like, "I cannot wait to tell everybody." And I had to sit on it for a month. Laura Massey: Yeah. And then we hadn't had the chance to talk about it. Larry Hryb: Right. Really, so ... That's right, we have been too busy. So that's, uh, that's, that's, please check that out if you're playing it. And I'm also playing, I started playing Quantum Break. Laura Massey: What? Larry Hryb: Yeah. Laura Massey: What? Larry Hryb: Time is, time is incredible. Laura Massey: You're so lucky. Jeff Rubenstein: Is that like a pun or something? Larry Hryb: No, it's a lot of fun. So I don't want to give any spoilers, I know that there's a lot of stream ... There's people streaming it right? Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, folks this week are streaming some selected scenes from act 1, and you'll see even more stuff start to come out next week, and then it comes out the week after. Larry Hryb: I have time powers, Laura. Laura Massey: I know, I cannot wait to get time powers. Larry Hryb: So ... Laura Massey: And see some of my favorite actors in a video game. Larry Hryb: Mm-hmm (affirmative), Jeff Rubenstein: It is called a C, especially I mean, little finger. Larry Hryb: Right, enough said. Is that an accent that he has in the game? Because I'm always like listening to him in the game like, "Wait, is that him?" Jeff Rubenstein: I don't know if he's really English or if he's really American. Larry Hryb: Yeah, because it's one or the other. Laura Massey: I'm looking him up. Larry Hryb: Is he English? So he is English. So it's an American accent he's dropping in the game. Laura Massey: I think. Larry Hryb: So anyways, you'll hear that as well, so anyways, so playing that. That's kind of what I'm playing, Laura. We're waiting for you in New York city. In midtown. To join us in the Division. It's also fun because it has dynamic lighting. Laura Massey: Cool. Larry Hryb: Yeah, so that ... And the other, the real fun part, and Jeff you and I haven't done this yet. I've only done it with another guy, Ryan. We went into the dark zone. And we had an incredible experience in the dark zone. Laura Massey: What's the dark zone? Larry Hryb: Oh, Jeffrey, why don't you school her up on the dark zone? Please don't make fun of Laura, she's been busy. Jeff Rubenstein: You'll, where the comparison I would say to Destiny where it separates. So there's an area ... Normally when you're playing the game, even though it's open world, you're not going to see too many other folks unless you're in a safe zone. Friendly fire is off, things like that. Everything you see that you need to shoot, you need to shoot. Dark zone there's no rules essentially. And once you go through there, everyone ... There's no set friend or foe. So I highly recommend you do not journey it alone. Um, because you will be an army of one and that doesn't always work out. So, in that area there are MPCs, powerful MPCs that if you take down drop some really cool loot that you can only get in the dark zone. And, uh, there's also some treasure boxes and other things that you can do. Uh, the only thing is when you grab loot there, the only way to bring it back is to call in a chopper, and to put it on a chopper. Larry Hryb: So you have to go to a specific area and actually ... And it takes a minute or so for the chopper to come in. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, I think it's 2 minutes and then you have to put it on a rope and that has to egress up there for like 10 seconds or whatever. The thing is, when you call a chopper, everyone on the map knows that you called a chopper. Laura Massey: Oh, so they can come after you. Larry Hryb: Yeah, and they can take your stuff. Laura Massey: Take your loot, what? Larry Hryb: Yeah, so there's a lot of social dynamics. [crosstalk 00:13:57] Jeff Rubenstein: So we'll hang back, we'll let someone else make the first move because the chopper doesn't stay there forever. There's a lot of different moves there. Sometimes I've gone up there and I've had very little problem. And other times, uh, I had my lunch money stolen. Larry Hryb: And there's the other element, you know, and again, the dark zone is a specific quarantined part of New York. As you're out there playing you're coming across other teams that are playing. So you can either team up against the AI, but if you shoot them or they shoot you, they're then marked as a rogue agent. So... Laura Massey: Can everybody see that they're a rogue agent? Larry Hryb: Yeah, yeah. Laura Massey: That's super interesting. I've never played anything like that. [crosstalk 00:14:36] Larry Hryb: I can tell you it's not in Diablo. So the dark ... I will warn you. You must be at least a level 10 in the regular game to join the dark zone. So, that's more than a couple hours in your case, so yeah, that's, that's, it's a fascinating dynamic and it's very interesting. There's been a lot of interesting things happen there, I'll just say that. Laura Massey: It sounds like a lot of fun. Larry Hryb: Would you agree with that, Jeff? Jeff Rubenstein: Oh yeah. It's, I would say there's nothing quite like it on a console because there is no rule. You always want to be polite because you very careful where you shoot. Larry Hryb: You come around the corner and it's like, "Are they going to shoot me?" Jeff Rubenstein: There's a bit of a [crosstalk 00:15:18] Larry Hryb: What's going on here? Hey what's up. We're cool. Jeff Rubenstein: We're cool for now. Larry Hryb: We're cool for now. Laura Massey: Interesting. Larry Hryb: It is, I've never really felt anything like it. Laura Massey: Yeah. Larry Hryb: Right, when you go to the dark zone it's got such an interesting dynamic. You need to try that out, Laura. Laura Massey: I do. Larry Hryb: The great part is, I did it a couple times and I extracted some gear. So what happens is, as Jeff said, you get this gear, assuming you're able to kill these MPCs or some other people. You extract the gear, and that gear shows up at your main base in the main game, so you go back to the main game and all of the sudden you open it up and you've got this pretty, pretty sweet loot that you're rocking and you can take that into the single/multiplayer co-op part of the game. Laura Massey: So it's almost like a dungeon? Larry Hryb: Sure. If you need to hear that then I'll tell you yes. (laughs) Jeff Rubenstein: Just from, not a top down view. Laura Massey: Okay. Larry Hryb: Yeah. [crosstalk 00:16:08] there's no crazy pink and blue and green things spinning around ... All right, what else do we ... Jeffrey, what do you play? Jeff Rubenstein: On the Xbox side it's pretty much exclusively been Division. Uh, and then a little bit of also playing Quantum Break like you are, you just spend a little more time on that. Laura Massey: Jealous. Jeff Rubenstein: But, uh ... Laura Massey: One correction, Andy Gillan is Irish. Jeff Rubenstein: Oh. Okay. There's a, it's a pretty good cast. Actually for Destiny fans, [inaudible 00:16:35] as well. You'll recognize the voice when you hear him, and if you watch The Wire, then you'll recognize all of it. So, yeah, Xcom, so I finally beat Xcom. Larry Hryb: Oh, can I ask you a question? Jeff Rubenstein: You've made it. Larry Hryb: Yeah I've made it! Jeff Rubenstein: You did sort of limp into the finish line, so when I got to the final ... Larry Hryb: A 'w' is a 'w'. (laughs) Jeff Rubenstein: There's sort of like 2 words. Like, hey, there's no going back once you launch this assault and serve a two-pronged assault. So, I had to in that first group. In the A group, and you got injured. Larry Hryb: Who else was in that first group? Jeff Rubenstein: Uh, I cannot remember. Because I actually, it was a tough battle, you made it and you were injured and in the hospital when I had to launch the final assault right afterwords. The thing that I remember I did lose about half the Xbox PR team unfortunately. They're sacrifice will always be remembered. The final shot on the final alien I had to get was delivered by Phil Spencer. He's a sniper, but he has a ... Laura Massey: How did you make that happen? Jeff Rubenstein: It just sort of turns that ... I had always kept him hanging back so he was able to stay alive, but he has this secondary thing where he would put his sniper rifle onto his shoulder and pull out this giant magnum and then boom. If anyone got close. Larry Hryb: Did you record that? Because you should have recorded it and sent it to Phil. Jeff Rubenstein: I should have, the final hit was delivered by him and I almost like to myself I was uttering, I felt like it needed a Schwarzenegger-esque, like, "You're fired." Like, like the final line before you blow up everything and it felt so good and Larry Hryb: I win. Jeff Rubenstein: I did take a couple screenshots at the end, because they rate your progress compared to the rest of the world. Even in a game, um, that I was happy just to beat, you still feel like you lost when you see how poorly you did compared to everyone else. Laura Massey: Nice. Larry Hryb: Well that's fun. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, but you made it. Larry Hryb: Thank you. Laura you didn't make it. Sorry you didn't make it, because it's not a dungeon. Laura Massey: (laughs) I would have rocked the dungeon. If you ever come across a dungeon let me know ... Larry Hryb: That's your girl right there. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, it was probably so far game of the year for me. That and Noxer 3 really stood out. Laura Massey: I was waiting to finish that one. Jeff Rubenstein: You haven't finished Noxer 3? Laura Massey: No, I got stuck. Jeff Rubenstein: There's a dungeon in there. Larry Hryb: Well it's a cave. Laura Massey: It's a cave. Jeff Rubenstein: You got, well how did you get stuck? Laura Massey: I don't know where to go now, I'm lost. Larry Hryb: Yeah, this is the problem I had because we talked about this because the map is so fanciful and I'm a very technically map-minded individual. Laura Massey: (laughs) Larry Hryb: Like ridiculously so. And I remember I got stuck because I, we should talk about it. Laura Massey: We should be waiting to go. Larry Hryb: We got a lot of news this week, you've got the headlines in front of you. System update, games with gold, a lot of games are out, Laura, what do you want to take? Laura Massey: Let's talk about the system update. Larry Hryb: System update. Jeff Rubenstein: Sure. Laura Massey: I'm super excited about this one. So the headline for this one is "To buy Xbox 360 games on Xbox one ..." Jeff Rubenstein: You can do it on the console. Laura Massey: You can do it on the console which is new. Um, and my personal favorite is 16 person party chat. Now you can have 16 people in a chat with you talking all at the same time. Jeff Rubenstein: All over each other, not knowing who is who. Laura Massey: (laughs) But I'm really impressed. Larry Hryb: There's a lot of features out. Of course Laura talked about that. We've got, um, I'll let you go through them. You've got the Twitch chat? Laura Massey: Yes, so now we need to try this out Larry and see how this works. But, now you can try your broadcast your part chat while you're Twitch-Streaming. Larry Hryb: So that means you can be at your house, I could be at my house and you could stream it, and we could hear you. Laura Massey: And you could hear it. And that makes team games so much easier to understand from the Twitch players perspective. If you could actually hear what's going on in the team instead of having you, Larry, be the ... Larry Hryb: Just having this one-sided conversation. Laura Massey: Being the one-sided conversation and trying to update everyone on Twitch about what's happening. Larry Hryb: Yeah, before we did this, when I would stream when we were playing, everybody in the part was whispering naughty things in my ear. Laura Massey: Oh were they? Larry Hryb: They were kind of disrupt me because they knew I was on the air and talking to the public. Laura Massey: That's just mean. Larry Hryb: Yeah. It is. But, I know you wouldn't do that. I wanted to be clear that that wasn't you, that was Zeke. So, (laughs) anyway, so that's new. What are some of the other features that you can discover? Laura Massey: It looks like there's an update to the Xbox Elite wireless controller improving the thumbstick precision with a firmware update which is super exciting. Jeff Rubenstein: So it's not going to force you to do it, or are you just go into settings? Larry Hryb: Well there's a firmware update and then you'll also see that in the app so it's kind of a two pronged piece. The other thing ... It will output your party chat to the headset and speakers simultaneously. I know a lot of folks were looking forward to that. Laura Massey: A highly requested feature. Larry Hryb: Yeah. You can change the Xbox record length. You can now go down to 15 seconds, or I believe up to 5 minutes. So every time you say it, it will ... Laura Massey: 5 minutes. Larry Hryb: 5 minutes. Laura Massey: Nice. Larry Hryb: So it will, that would help. Other stuff, of course achievements, right? You saw the new achievement on guide, right? Laura Massey: No I didn't see that. Larry Hryb: You didn't see that? What? Jeff, do you want to talk about that? Jeff Rubenstein: Oh are you talking ... That achievements appear in the guide as you're playing? Larry Hryb: Yeah, yeah. Jeff Rubenstein: So, um, just pretty much double tap the next button, swing it over to achievements, and it's updating as you're playing. Larry Hryb: And there it is. It's a new little trophy icon. I hate saying that word because it's the achievement icon. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah. Larry Hryb: (laughs) Jeff Rubenstein: [crosstalk 00:21:55] He made fun of me when I called it a trophy once. Larry Hryb: I know. Jeff Rubenstein: And I was like, there's a reason for that, I was looking at the picture of a trophy. Larry Hryb: And I understand that. So there's that. Any other features that you want to go over, Laura, before we wrap this piece up? Laura Massey: I think that was it. If you want to know more you can go to MajorNelson.com. Larry Hryb: Yeah. Laura Massey: Read all of the details. Larry Hryb: I'm going to point out that the app for Widows, the Xbox app also got a significant update as well, and we'll put a link to the show notes off to that so you can see that as well. Do you use that? Laura Massey: A little bit. Larry Hryb: Yeah, I've got it open right here. [crosstalk 00:22:26] Laura Massey: Which is every day. Larry Hryb: Every day. Laura Massey: And I'll talk about it in the gadgets section so, I'm sure I'll have to use it more and more. It's very exciting. Larry Hryb: Okay. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, I use the Xbox app, it's ... Larry Hryb: I have it opened most of the day, and it's just it's kind of awesome. Jeff Rubenstein: I feel like that's the easiest way to go and see what other people are playing to go through and comment on, like on their status updates, and like to look at sweet, sweet achievements and progress. Larry Hryb: Lollipop. Lollipop offline. Let's go see what she's playing, shall we? Laura Massey: Go for it. I can tell you it's not going to be a surprise. Larry Hryb: Boy, that's ... That's purple. Laura Massey: Sure is purple. Larry Hryb: That's, uh ... Your background sure is purple. Here's a little tip, I don't know if you've seen this one, Laura. So on the Xbox 1, you can customize your dashboard for your color to color and put a background and sorts. Now what's interesting is, a lot of people don't realize this. When you're at a party, you'll see the little circle with their icon, or their little avatar on top. There's a color around that circle, that color is your color, so if you and I were to join a party I would see this purple and pink one, so that's just a little ... Jeff Rubenstein: And it comes into the Xbox app as well because all my stuff is purple. Larry Hryb: All right, so ... Laura Massey: Yeah, there it is, I've got a purple background. Larry Hryb: You sure do, and a ... Look who you are. Laura Massey: I know, I've been playing the same game for a long time. Larry Hryb: Forever. Forever. Forever. And boy, you know what really this is, we'll go into some of the other news, but what happened earlier this week was the first DLC for Fallout came out. Laura Massey: What? Jeff Rubenstein: No way. Larry Hryb: Automatron. So ... Laura Massey: What does it have? Larry Hryb: Robots. Laura Massey: So, like ... Larry Hryb: Awesome robots. Laura Massey: Like robots that I fight or robots that I jump into? Larry Hryb: Uh, you'll see. Laura Massey: Okay. Jeff Rubenstein: Well, you do want to ... It's related to the Silver Clowd storyline, so you do want to ... Larry Hryb: Which I need to do! Jeff Rubenstein: How have you not done that? It's like a tiny ... Larry Hryb: I know, it's like [crosstalk 00:24:24] And everyone talks about this one particular quest and somehow I never saw it. Because I didn't spend a lot of time at Good Neighbor. Jeff Rubenstein: Right. Larry Hryb: And I would always go to basically it's that, it's that comic book store, I can see it ... That it's based after. I went in there like 3 or 4 times on some missions but I never did the Silver Cloud mission. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, they're pretty good and apparently if you're running around in that outfit in these missions, then there's special dialogue that you'll get for it. Larry Hryb: My favorite part about this ... Maybe I talked about it on the show, but maybe I didn't because I didn't want to spoil it, but there's a particular area in the northwest, I believe it's the northwest of the wasteland, where ... Jeff Rubenstein: That's where you spawn in. Is the northwest. Laura Massey: That's sanctuary. Larry Hryb: So maybe it's southeast. [crosstalk 00:25:08] anyway, it's in a corner, and, um, you get to this park and there's a, it's a, it's a beautiful lake. Laura Massey: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Larry Hryb: And there's this stage and you go into this, it looks like a ranger hut, and you log onto the monitor, or you log onto the computer and you activate 4 robots, and they come out of their little robot holding pens which are in each corner of this house. And they walk out onto the stage and start doing a dance. Jeff Rubenstein: (laughs) Larry Hryb: Then they come out and walk along the lake and start shooting things. It's fantastic. I don't know why, but I was just giggling during that whole thing, it was spectacular. Laura Massey: We haven't seen that. Larry Hryb: I recommend it. Jeff Rubenstein: I never went to Salem which was a same. I went to Salem in real life as a kid. The witches, that's where they burned the witches. Larry Hryb: Yes. Burn them. All right, well ... Laura Massey: Speaking of Fallout, I was in Boston recently. Larry Hryb: You were. Laura Massey: And that's where Fallout is set. And I saw a taxi cab that still had the Fallout 4 banner on top. Larry Hryb: Really? Laura Massey: That was really cool and strange at the same time because the game is set in Boston, I'm in Boston, I see a taxi cab, in Boston, that is advertising the game. Larry Hryb: In Boston. Laura Massey: In Boston, yeah. Jeff Rubenstein: Maybe they just pour some garbage out in an alley in New York and there's like a Division sign, and they just blur that line. I'll tell you, because you constantly see, like, piles of garbage bags in the Division, but you're out there on trash day in New York, it looks exactly like that. Larry Hryb: Exactly. Have you ever been to New York? It's unforgettable. Laura Massey: I've been to Boston on [inaudible 00:26:39] Day. Larry Hryb: Probably very similar. Jeff Rubenstein: That's the difference between the east coast and the west coast. In the east coast, you just throw a bag out on to the curb. Larry Hryb: And it disappears. Jeff Rubenstein: Out west, uh, you have a bin. It's just classy. Larry Hryb: All right, so system update now. Jeffrey, what do you got over there? Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, so huge spring sale, and this goes across games, this goes across Xbox live, and this goes across the Xbox itself. So Xbox 1 can now be had for 299, there's a ... for a limited time, yeah, so that's like $50 off. And these are the consoles bundles, so it's a game and your Xbox. A large number of games also available, including stuff like Halo 5 Guardians which is 35% off, I saw sales as high as 75% off. I'd say the average game is somewhere between 35% and 50%. And it really incorporates all of our big holiday titles including Forta and Gears Of War, so, um, it's ... Rise Of The Tomb Raider on there? It sure is, so also at 35% off, so if there's something that you missed out on and want to add to your pile of shame, this is the way to do it. Larry Hryb: It's not going to help out on you spring cleaning, we're just going to add to it. Jeff Rubenstein: They do call it the spring cleaning sale, but it is digital so you're not going to clutter up your house. Um, also sort of in part of that we announced our March, uh, April games of gold. Larry Hryb: Did you hear about these, Laura? Laura Massey: I did not. Larry Hryb: They're killer. Jeff Rubenstein: This is our best lineup. Larry Hryb: Actually people have called this our best lineup ever on Twitter. Jeff Rubenstein: That's pretty fair, it might have been me, and only one person disagreed and they had a pretty good call because when Witcher 2 came out that was probably about a year ago. So the first part of the month, actually all month of April is the Wolf Among Us which I never got to. And then the second half of the month April 16 through the middle of May, Sunset Overdrive. Laura Massey: Awesome. Jeff Rubenstein: Which is just an amazing game and I'm glad that everyone is going to get a chance to play it. And on Xbox360, don't forget backwards compatible with Xbox 1, the original Dead Space. Which I thought was incredible. It was like sort of Alien to Dead Space 2's Alien. Which is so atmospheric, and so scary. Larry Hryb: Did you play that, Laura? Laura Massey: Yes I did, that was the first game I remember playing that didn't have a UI. Larry Hryb: Right, because the UI was on the back of the suit. Laura Massey: It was on the back of the guy. [crosstalk 00:29:02] Jeff Rubenstein: And then the second half of April with be Saint's Row 4. And Saint's Row 4 was pretty awesome. It becomes almost Crackdown-ish with you being get all these superpowers and at some point it becomes easier to jump across the map than it is to drive. Larry Hryb: As it should in Saint's Row. There you go. Jeff Rubenstein: Just checking that was 4, yeah the 3rd happened a long time ago, so that is the games with gold for April. Larry Hryb: A lot of games are out, of course Quantum Break is out for pre-order. If you pre-order it now, you get the Widows version absolutely free. Laura Massey: That's really cool. Larry Hryb: Yeah, so don't forget that, right Jeffrey? Jeff Rubenstein: Uh, you cannot, because you just said that. Larry Hryb: You can't because you just had that in mind. Jeff Rubenstein: So a couple of new Xbox 1 controllers. Do you have one of these yet? The, uh, the Dusk Shadow or Copper Shadow? Larry Hryb: I do, I have them sitting on my desk. Laura Massey: I saw your thing on Xbox where you showed them. Larry Hryb: Yeah, we did that. I don't have them, actually did you see what I have this week? Laura Massey: No, not yet. Larry Hryb: I posted on my Instagram and on Twitter. It's a custom Elite controller for Quantum Break. Laura Massey: Yes, I did see that. Larry Hryb: Oh you did? Laura Massey: I did see that and I was really jealous. It has your name on it! Larry Hryb: It, of course it did, why wouldn't it? So that was a present from the marketing team for helping them out. They do all the hard work, I just came to talk about it, so. Would you like one, Laura? Laura Massey: Yes. (laughs) Larry Hryb: Okay. Jeff Rubenstein: Just, hi. My name is Chopped Liver, and I don't have a Quantum Break Elite Controller. (laughter) Larry Hryb: Anyway, so to answer your question, I've got those sitting on my desk. They're great, super cool. Jeff Rubenstein: So here's the news bit that you'll be able to shed a little more light on this. You were down in L.A. Larry Hryb: I was. Jeff Rubenstein: Halo 5 ... Larry Hryb: Halo 5 World Championship. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, which was again never felt worse about my skills in Halo, but it is to nice to watch the best in the world do their thing. But, one of the main things I was looking out for was the War Zone Firefight Reveal. Larry Hryb: Right. Jeff Rubenstein: That looks really cool. Larry Hryb: It's just big craziness. We like that. Jeff Rubenstein: That's coming this summer, correct? Larry Hryb: Yeah. Did I tell you ... I think I emailed you, right Laura? Or I texted you when I was on the ... So we did the World Championship, we shot it on a big lot in Los Angeles where there's TV shows, and movies shoot there. It wasn't one of the big ones like a Paramount or Universe or Disney or the other ones ... Laura Massey: Would you say it was properly Hollywood? Larry Hryb: Oh, without a doubt it's directly ... It was Raleigh Studios which is directly across the street from Paramount Pictures, you know the infamous arch. It's right across the street. Jeff Rubenstein: And you were parking at an Xbox Fan's spot. Larry Hryb: So when I got there, I was the host so they gave me a parking spot and I get onto the lot. Getting parking on a Hollywood lot is kind of a big deal. Laura Massey: Yeah, I can imagine. Larry Hryb: So I pull in, and they're like, can you park next to here please? So I say sure, and I pull in. I kind of notice that all of the curbs have names on them, but I really didn't notice it. And I get out and I look, and it's Nathan Filion's spot. Because they shoot Castle, his TV show, they shoot Castle there. Laura Massey: Wow. You parked in Nathan Fillion's spot. Larry Hryb: I did, and I was a little nervous because I was like, is he going to show up to work today? Is he working on Sunday? Jeff Rubenstein: He's a tall gentleman. I wouldn't want to park in his spot. Larry Hryb: I was bummed he wasn't there, because he plays Buck in Halo 5, um, but he was not, according to the internet, because after I posted that on Twitter, he was at the, uh, Silicon Valley Comic Con, so he was out of town. Laura Massey: Nice. Larry Hryb: So anyway, so, enjoyed that, that was fun to host the event, and like Jeff said, the best players in the world and of course Bonnie was there and Kiki and the rest of the 343. And Phil came down, it was just ... A good time was had by all, Laura. Laura Massey: That sounds super fun. Larry Hryb: Did you watch any of it? Laura Massey: I was traveling. Larry Hryb: That's right, you were. You were traveling. That's why I was texting you whilst you were traveling, I remember that now. Uh, anyways, so that was, uh, anyways, did you want me to shed some light on the fact that we gave away a million dollars? Is that what you want me to do? Jeff Rubenstein: I just wanted to hear about your time there. Larry Hryb: It was ... Although the biggest failure the biggest faux pas was ... You know what I'm going to say, Laura. Friday to Sunday night, it's exhausting. I mean, not as exhausting as the players, because they were playing. But, doing live TV is stressful, so I'm like I'm going to go back to the hotel. And the hotel I'm staying at is downtown Los Angeles, JWS, the Marriot right next to the Staple's Center. Jeff Rubenstein: Oh yes, I know where you're going. (laughter) Larry Hryb: So I go down there and I'm just exhausted and it's like 7 or 8 o'clock at night and I just want to go to my room to take a shower and get something to eat, and I pull into the hotel and just that night, at the Staple's Center ... Laura Massey: Which is right next to it ... Larry Hryb: [crosstalk 00:33:35] was a Justin Bieber concert. Oh no. Jeff Rubenstein: Did you bring back a shirt? Larry Hryb: Everybody ... You know, I texted the photo to you, Laura and I posted on Snapchat. Everyone was like, "Oh, I want a shirt!" And I should have went, I should have got you a shirt. Laura Massey: What? Larry Hryb: I should have got you a ... Are you a Belieber? Laura Massey: [inaudible 00:33:52] Jeff Rubenstein: But I don't know, I wanted you to go, what I was hoping for was to see a thread show up on Reddit that said, uh, I had to take my daughter or my wife, or I just happened to be going to the show and I happened ... I think Major Nelson was here, with, like, a picture of you sort of tearfully waving your handkerchief at the Biebs, and ... Larry Hryb: I told you I would go if you went, Jeff Rubenstein: So we would never go. Larry Hryb: Anyways, that was, that was a weird one. So anyways, that was the nice time down in Los Angeles as always. Where am I headed to this week? Oh, headed to San Francisco, so no show next week. Laura Massey: Wow, you are a busy man. Larry Hryb: Yeah, I'm going down to do the U.S. finals of the Imagine Cup. Laura Massey: Oh, fun. Larry Hryb: You did the judging last year. Laura Massey: Yeah, for the World Cup. Larry Hryb: For the World Finals. I'm going down for the U.S. I'll be going to Los Angeles, I'm sorry, I mean San Francisco Wednesday, Thursday, Friday I think. Laura Massey: That's great, that's always a ton of fun seeing the best and greatest at ... Larry Hryb: It's humbling is what it is. They're so incredible intelligent anyway. And so encumbered with all of life's biases. Let's just leave it at that. Laura Massey: (laughs) That's one way to put it. Larry Hryb: So, all right. You know what we're going to do now? We're going to do Name The Game, Laura, because you thought I was going to forget. Laura Massey: Yes I did! Larry Hryb: You thought I was going to forget but I haven't I have my notes here, we're going to play a clip of a game a few weeks ago, are you ready? Laura Massey: It's been a long time, but let's do this. Larry Hryb: (video game sounds) Laura Massey: So that was me in the game from last time, and it was definitely the hard one. It was the Flame in the Floods. Larry Hryb: Yes, the Flame in the Floods. Laura Massey: Only a few correct answers on that one. Larry Hryb: But, uh ... Laura Massey: He got it right. Larry Hryb: Yes, the gentleman, I'm not going to give his name, I'll give his gamer tag. InfamousFool from Laura Massey: From? Larry Hryb: The breakfast cereal capital of the world ... Jeff Rubenstein: Is it Battle Creek, Michigan? Larry Hryb: Battle Creek, Michigan. (laughter) Laura Massey: How did you know that? Larry Hryb: How did you not know it? Jeff Rubenstein: Did you not read cereal boxes growing up? Larry Hryb: When you're sitting there when you were growing up and you had the cereal box in front of you and you were reading it, everybody knows Battle Creek. Jeff Rubenstein: 140 Calories, or 180 with half a cup of skim milk. You have to add another 30 calories if it's 2%. Larry Hryb: So there you go, Battlecreek Michigan. You didn't know Battlecreek Michigan? Laura Massey: I sure did not. I didn't know Kellog or is it Kellog that's there? Are all the cereal manufacturers there? Jeff Rubenstein: No, you grow up with the majors path or some of the good stuff, you know? Laura Massey: No, Honey Nut Cheerios. Yeah. [crosstalk 00:38:19] Larry Hryb: Uh, boy. [crosstalk 00:38:25] That's right. Jeff Rubenstein: These are the people that put ketchup on their hot-dog and they're going to tell me ... Larry Hryb: My sister and I were talking about this, my younger sister and I were talking about how kids nowadays ... How did you learn about classical music? Laura Massey: I took piano lessons. Larry Hryb: How about you? Jeff Rubenstein: Who's to say that I know anything about classical music? I mean, I spend a lot of time in elevators. Larry Hryb: We learned it from Bug's Bunny. Jeff Rubenstein: I suppose that's true. Laura Massey: Yes. That was before piano lessons. Larry Hryb: We were talking about how a lot of kids don't learn about it, so anyways so Battlecreek Michigan is also part of out childhood. Anyways, congratulations InfamousFool, you've grabbed yourself, uh, I've gotta check to see I don't know what we've got here. A copy of Gears of War Ultimate, for Xbox 1, we'll get you a copy of Quantum Break as well. Jeff Rubenstein: Yes. Larry Hryb: So that will be a good one, so. All right, are you ready for another name game? Laura Massey: Yes, it's time for a name the game for this week. (video game sounds) So that was the Name the Game for this week, if you think you know what game those sound effects are from, it's really simple. Just send me an email. Lollipop@Xbox.com and CC Major@Xbox.com and say what game that is. Larry Hryb: Yes. Laura Massey: If you'd like to, you can include your name, gamer tag, and where you're from, but of course if you don't want to you don't have to. We respect your privacy. So good luck to all listeners. Larry Hryb: If you can't ... If that's too hard for you, okay, swing over to my blog at MajorNelson.com, I am giving away an Xbox 1 1 terabyte EA Sports Fifa 16 bundle, do you know why? Laura Massey: What? Larry Hryb: Because we have the Play Like a Legend Championship, happening in London, so that's going to be ... Anyway, I'm giving away a console over there, and when you open that you get a 1 terabyte console, a copy of Fifa 16, and one year of EA Access, so that's kind of awesome. We give away stuff all the time here. Laura Massey: All the time, so many good things. Larry Hryb: What else do you got, Laura, before we wrap up here. Laura Massey: Should we go into the gadget section? Larry Hryb: Please. You have a new gadget there. What do you got there? Laura Massey: This is a surface book. I finally got myself a surface book, I know you've had one, Larry, for a while. Larry Hryb: Yeah, I have. Laura Massey: But this is the first time I've had a tablet, as you could say. The first time I could take a pen and draw onto the green, I have a Surface Pro ... Larry Hryb: Show me a doodle. Show me a doodle. Laura Massey: Okay. Larry Hryb: Okay, so now you don't have that now you're just flat out saying no. Why not? Laura Massey: I've been drawing ... Larry Hryb: What did you do on the back of your math book? Did you do a pony, did you do a rainbow? Laura Massey: No, I wasn't really a doodler. In computer science I would doodle little characters to practice them in ampersand or a curly brace, I would scribble those into the margins. When you take computer science you're required to write code on a piece of paper which is not ... Larry Hryb: Are they still required to? Laura Massey: Probably. So that's what I would practice my ... That's really what I would do I would practice those characters because I was really terrible at them, but now I'm better. Larry Hryb: Okay. I still want to see a doodle. So go ahead and tell them about your Surface book and the doodles that I cannot see, that you're hiding from me. Laura Massey: (laughs) Sure, the keyboard is fantastic, absolutely love the keyboard. It feels almost like a real laptop's. But the difference is that you can press a button and hold it down and it pops out the tablet. Larry Hryb: Yeah, they magnetically it essentially lets go. Laura Massey: It releases it, which is different from the surface pros. Jeff Rubenstein: Muscle wire is what it's called. Laura Massey: This year, the bend ... Jeff Rubenstein: So basically it's always grabbing onto that tab so it's on there really strongly. So when you want to loosen it you hold that button down it very briefly pulses some electricity through it that makes it let go, but as soon as you take it off, so it's natural reaction is to grab. That's why it's so strong you could lift it up by that tablet part if you need to. Laura Massey: Yeah, so you hit a button on the keyboard and it releases that lock. Larry Hryb: Then you have a tablet. And this is the one for those of you that can't remember, that has the GP on some battery in the keyboard, under the keyboard. All of that is underneath there, Laura. Laura Massey: But it doesn't feel heavy at all. And then all of your connections like if you went to display or pop in a well, the charger and USB and memory are on the keyboard. Larry Hryb: On the left side there. You know it's got 2 batteries, right? Laura Massey: No? Larry Hryb: Yeah. So, hover over the battery symbol. And you'll see that it says battery 1 and battery 2. Do you see that? Laura Massey: No. Larry Hryb: Okay, I think you have to touch it. Laura Massey: Yeah, battery 1 85% and in use, battery 2 100% and in use, and I have 89% and 7 hours and 5 minutes remaining. It's got amazing battery life. Larry Hryb: You've got, there's a battery in the top part where the screen is, so if you eject it you need power. And then in the bottom, they filled out, the engineering team filled out some of the bottom part where if you're not using the GPU you can put a battery in there, so you can have lots of battery. Jeff Rubenstein: Not only that, but it charges knowing that if you're using the keyboard you're more than likely to be plugged in. It draws from the keyboard first. You may be working for a while and say, oh, I need to pop off the top, and it only will then draw off the second battery that is in the tablet part second in case you need to take it. Then you can go and run with it. And when you plug it back in, it recharges the tablet first. Laura Massey: That is really smart, so you can always continue to use your computer for hours and hours. Larry Hryb: And then for hours and hours. Laura Massey: I'm absolutely loving it. Larry Hryb: Next week you'll show us a doodle? Laura Massey: Maybe. I haven't had it that long. I've had it about a week. Larry Hryb: Okay, you haven't even doodled at all? Laura Massey: I've doodled for work. Larry Hryb: Did you double tap the eraser. Go ahead and do it. It takes a screenshot. Laura Massey: It does, and then it opens up one note. Jot down things to remember. Larry Hryb: And I think you can press and hold it and doesn't it do Cortana? Jeff Rubenstein: Yes, you press and hold and it does Cortana, and you press once and I think it just does, uh, one note. And then if you want to doodle, Fresh Paint is a great free app. Laura Massey: Yeah, I'll give that a try and I'll have to show you my artwork. Larry Hryb: I want to see ampersand art. Ampersand and curly brace art. Laura Massey: I could probably do that. Larry Hryb: Okay, setting the bar low. All right, we're going to wrap up here? Do you have gadgets, Jeffrey? You usually have one at this part of the show. Jeff Rubenstein: No, I'm looking at TVs now. Larry Hryb: Oh boy. Jeff Rubenstein: There's some good stuff out now. Larry Hryb: You're going down that slippery slope. Jeff Rubenstein: Yeah, but once I make the call ... Larry Hryb: Pull the trigger, pull the trigger. Anything else, Laura? Laura Massey: I think that's it for me. Larry Hryb: All right guys, well, we're going to wrap it up here. Thanks for listening to the show and thanks for, uh, hearing us on here, we'll be back in a couple weeks. I'll be on the road next week and maybe we'll do a Hangout or maybe I'll do a Periscope. Maybe we'll just do Livestream Laura doodling. Laura Massey: (laughs) Larry Hryb: All right, we'll talk to you guys next time, bye everybody. Jeff Rubenstein: See you!
