Large DDos attack on US Friday

Taking out popular services like Netflix, Etsy, Reddit, Twitter, and PSN, one of the largest DDoS attacks on the US and Europe happen on Friday, October 21. Also affected was Amazon Web Service which is used by over 1 million companies, including GE, Newscorp, and Capital One. As far as I can tell, no responsibility as been claimed, but the White House and Department of Homeland Security is looking into it. Could be PoodleCorp, Lizard Squad, or even Russia, however, PoodleCorp did say in September that they would be taking down the Battlefield 1 servers on October 21, but this was much larger than that.

Voice actors on strike

On October 21, 2016 the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists or SAG-AFTRA has gone on strike after nearly 2 years of negotiations with video game companies. SAG- AFTRA is a union consisting of about 25% of all voice actors for video games. The strike is set to target large video game companies such as: Activision, Disney Character Voices, EA, Insomniac, Take-Two and WB Games. Union workers have gone on strike against any game that was started after February 17, 2015, anything before that was protected under a No Strike Clause.

During negotiations, SAG-AFTRA was looking for a pay increases from $100/hr to around $200/hr, No more than 2 continuous hours of “vocally stressful” recordings, a lack of secrecy from gaming companies (actors have complained that they don’t know what roles or games they are even auditioning for) and an increase in overall pay based on specific sales figures of games. The union workers would like to receive additional full scale payments for every 500,000 copies of the game sold, maxing out at 4 payments at 2 million copies sold.  

Video Game Companies offered a 9% wage increase and a maximum of $950 per game based on number of voice acting sessions. This can equate up to a 23% increase in wage for some actors. Gaming companies are also requesting a fine against SAG-AFTRA if there is not an agent representing the union worker during all auditions, fines can range to “tens of thousands of dollars.” They also want the ability to fine the actors themselves $1,000 if they do not show up on time or are not fully invested in the voice work.

There is a picket scheduled on Monday, October 24 at EA’s California offices.

52: Luke Cage

52: Luke Cage

Luke Cage Spoilers

Episodes 1 & 2:

Timeline: Takes place after Jessica Jones but not sure if before or after Daredevil season 2

Mention of the “Incident” (Avengers 2012)

Reference to Jessica Jones

Pop calls Luke “Power Man”

Turk is a recurring character in all Netflix Marvel properties (tells Cottonmouth where Chico is) Gunrunner in Daredevil

Music in Cottonmouth’s club is FANTASTIC

Episode 3:
Luke assaults Crispus Attucks, fighting choreography is kinda lame

  • Big action set piece but Luke isn’t ever in danger
  • Big sweeping motions where Luke hits multiple guys at once instead of just dominating person after person. Would have preferred to see a larger show of force

When in the hospital room with Chico, the show has a very soap opera feel

  • Not sure if I like the director

Woman detective and white detective argue about vigilantism, call back to Civil War

White detective is shown to be on Cottonmouth’s payroll

At the end of the episode, Cottonmouth shoots an RPG at Luke at Genghis Connie’s

  • Completely destroys all credibility of the show to this point
  • Too cartoony

Episode 4: Origin episodes

Prison cell fight (shades and someone else) was way better than Crispus Attucks fight

The end of episode 3 and the middle of 4 show that the only way to hurt Cage is to hurt his friends

Episode 5:

Cottonmouths’ club music changes to hip hop/ rap/ Drake

Confirmed to take place after Season 2 of Daredevil by Clair talking to her mom

DareDevil for the PS2

  • Cancelled, 5,000 ft, Inc., Encore Publisher, Marvel and Sony disagree, Microsoft
  • More of a brawler than acrobatic, no jumps and flips
  • Billy club is used for melee combat, throwing, and swinging around the city
  • Grinding feature a la THPS, telephone wires, not cannon, pushed by Sony
  • “World on fire” vision, 3rd Person “Radar Vision” Detective Mode
  • Elektra, Bullseye, and Kingpin
  • Spider-Man 1 game released mid development, not open world
  • Billy Club swinging would lock onto buildings when Spider-man would not
  • Tensions rise as new employees succumb to drug abuse
  • STORY: Kingpin is assassinated so local gangs try to secure control. Foggy Nelson is kidnapped so he has to be found and Elektra is newly resurrected. Being blamed for the assassination, DD has to clear Elektra’s name.
  • Characters: Stick, Ben Urich, Josie. Punisher has an extended cameo, Black widow. Sewer King, the Hand ninjas, Silvermane, Hammerhead
  • PLOT TWIST: Kingpin is alive and pulling the strings on everything!
  • In the end, 5kFt leaned too much in Sony’s direction so Marvel pulled the license

42: X-Men Apocalypse, No Man’s Sky, & Pokemon!

In this episode, Justin and Tony talk about their experience with X-Men Apocalypse. Also, news of No Man’s Sky being delayed has an emotional effect on one of the cast. There are rumors that Pokemon is having translation issues and the question is posed if Assassin’s Creed would have originally made a better movie than a videogame.

Thanks for listening!

Notes:

Episode 42: Sex-Men Apocalypse

Prof. X and Apoc fight reminded me of Gandalf and Saruman

Forgot about Wolverine and was pleasantly surprised to see him even though he had bad hair and a stupid thing on his face/chest

I like Sansa Stark in everything

I would have preferred more time with each new character

Scott (Cyclops) is useless as always

Essex Company/ Mr. Sinister/ Cable/ Deadpool/ Clones/ Jean Grey/ Scott Summers

Better than I expected

Quicksilver scene was fun but maybe too humorous for the tone

Too many jokes break the tension

Where’s Psylocke going?

Why did Strom change sides at the end?

 

No Man’s Sky releasing August 9

Infinite Warfare most liked and disliked COD trailer of all time

First Episode of ELeague

Nintendo changing the names of Pokemon on China

Record Breaking: EVO now biggest tournament ever for Smash Wii U

Ragnarok will include elements of Planet Hulk

Xbox One back down to $299 before E3

Would Assassin’s Creed originally be better as a movie than a game?
