I'm bummed that neither coasts still hasn't done any QL for EXA Punks... I would assume it would be a Vinny quicklook but I know that Jeff played it as well.

Did Matt Pascual get laid off with this Bungie thing? His twitter reads like it, and his most recent few twitter likes aren't big on the whole Destiny split.
Oof, maybe. Marketing would have been handled by Activision presumably.

Also people seem really jazzed about the Destiny split but I don't know they have much cause to celebrate. People seem to think that'll end the microtransactions and that now Bungie can take their time to release games. If anything I expect MT to increase even more with the size of that studio. It's almost like a Brexit situation. People blame Activision for all their issues, but are probably going to find out Bungie alone isn't going to be much better.

Oooh it comes up live during the Beastcast? Or did they record after it dropped?
Oh not about the Bungie/Activision split (unless that comes later), just one of the guests had been playing Destiny 2 and that was more or less the last thing I understood in that long conversation

I'm watching this Eternal Castle QL and a bit bothered by how nobody seems able to understand what's going on even though it's pretty simple and straight forward. Like the "dog" they were freaking out over is obvious just a person on the ground hiding.
Ehh, TEC is just not a very readable game. It's as inscrutable as some of the oldest games Jeff plays for TOGS, only it has no business being such as a release in 2018. It's like they're making an homage to games they've never played, which I guess is technically the case (as a remake of a fake game) but it's still baffling all the same.

Really? Looked like a dog to me

Still no TotAbby Vinhammer on schedule
Do you really want that though? Really?
Cause you know it will be Dan playing and he will send archers in front and then say stuff like "I just want them to do cool guy things" while he lets all of his units run up a mountain.

Callender says that Pitchford left a USB drive in a Dallas, Texas restaurant containing sensitive corporate documents for Gearbox and its partners including 2K Games, Sega, Sony, Microsoft, and others. Says the lawsuit: “Upon information and belief, Randy Pitchford’s USB drive also contained Randy Pitchford’s personal collection of ‘underage’ pornography.
Callender also accuses Pitchford of holding parties in which “adult men have reportedly exposed themselves to minors, to the amusement of Randy Pitchford.”

Yeah, especially since it happened in 2014. Being silent doesn't make anything any better(actually makes you just as bad) if what he alleges is true but time will tell now that it's all out there.

Attorney-client privilege, though. The Model Rules of Professional Conduct for lawyers in the US prohibit you from disclosing information a client has told you or you've learned through representing a client. There are exceptions to this rule in which you may disclose the information but it's not a requirement. An attorney could be disbarred for violating this rule, as terrible as it seems in these circumstances.

He wasn't Pitchford's personal lawyer. He was Gearbox's general counsel
