    Maybe we need a rebranding… let the hate go and be "Nate & Mate" ?

  2. jotaroxtreme says

    GDC has been officially cancelled. I think this is a good thing. A bunch of companies pulled out and the risk is just to make it worth it. Sure, the industry will lose a lot of money, but losing money is a whole lot better then risking your life as well as the lives of your coworkers, friends, and family members.

    Great discussion and thoughts as usual. Looking forward to the next one.That thumbnail might be the best one yet?

  4. the basement Band says

    Thanks you guys always having great conversations. And your idea of being unknown with pictures. And letting substance persevere. I’ll never make a music video with me in it again. I’m glad to hear introspective chats with thoughts. I can for real respect that. Keep up the good work my dogs.

  5. MRCnyc1 says

  6. Tom Simmons says

    No one cares about Death Stranding or Kojima anymore.

  9. Ross Bradley says

    Really excellent discussion again with you and MVG. Hope you keep this collaboration going for a while.

  10. Baltimorez MVP says

    Good discussion fellas

  11. BDIAS85 says

    Love these videos gents. I enjoy the level headed look at issues in this industry we love. Lack of hot takes makes me prefer these more than the click bait crap out there.

  12. UltimateSacrifice says

    I’d like to sent a message out to the Coronavirus. Either kill everyone or go away so we don’t have to talk about you. It’s tiresome to have to hear gaming news commentators pretend to understand the Science of viral outbreaks.

  13. infernaltim1 says

    Nate the Hate and His Australian Mate. I dig it. ?

  14. Non Sequitur says

    The Video Game Industry and all Global Economies get what they F#cking deserve.For prioritizing and outsourcing 95%+ of their production and manufacturing to China.Major delays and cancellations for VG Industry would be an Epic Collapse.As long this inevitable Pandemic screws over…"The Last of Us: Part 2 and any of Hideo Kojima's Pretentious Crap".This descent into a Pandemic Hell Scape will at least be enjoyable.

  15. Jack E. Gee says

    Nate said the word “Bollocks.” My life is complete

  16. Light the Fuse says

    Did he just say monsta hunta? lmao

  30. Buck Roger says

    Great topic. Nice to hear from someone who isn't trying to spin this into a fanboy topic. Nate you an MVG are making a great team here. Looking forward to the next show you guys do.

  32. Haruhi Suzumiya says

    Nintendo has animal crossing

  33. Isaiah Matthews says

    Great discussion, yet again!The company I work for sent out a company-wide email advising travel to affected regions was only to be done in emergency situations and not advised for personal travel. Additional caution was advised. Pretty sure Sony, or any other company is in the right to cancel, despite the immediate and indirect cost to profits.

  34. Diego Turco says

    Your voice would make an amazing Animal Crossing very specific type of content

  35. slave2dabeats says
