That’s what it should be called. – (metallic clank) – Damn. What? In the air? What? This is defying the law of physics?

Like, what is this? This is… (mutters) [bleep] this game, yo. I feel like I should jump on the blocks and then go back down. Maybe if I run under it really fast.

– Yeah. – (metallic clank) – ♪ (game over music) ♪ ♪ (theme music) ♪ (whispers) Okay, okay, okay. – (metallic clank) – ♪ (game over music) ♪ What the? Can I jump far enough? I don’t think so. – (gasps) – ♪ (triumphant music) ♪ I did it.

I beat level three. ♪ (triumphant fanfare) ♪ ♪ (theme music) ♪ – ♪ (triumphant music) ♪ – Ooh-ooh! Damn, I’m doing good right now! I should go home and buy every real Mario game there is and just beat it in one day.

♪ (triumphant fanfare) ♪ ♪ (game over music) ♪ I know it. I can see the end. I just need to get there.

– ♪ (game over music) ♪ – (crying) Can I just make it off the brick? I swear to god. ♪ (triumphant music) ♪ ♪ (triumphant fanfare) ♪ It was not fun at all. There was no fun in it.

It’s frustrating, and I just got mad. It was very unfair. You could obviously tell, I was pixels away from spikes, and I would still die by them. That is bull. I thought it was actually pretty fun, only because I did so well.

Super Bowl Betting Odds: Best Patriots vs. Rams Bets

Over the two weeks ahead of the 2019 Super Bowl, the sports betting focus is largely on the spread of the game. It’s understandable, as that’s the measuring stick for who bettors and oddsmakers believe will win the big game and it’s where the bulk of the action goes as well. But as we’ve seen many times over the years, some of the best bets can be found in places other than on the spread. After searching over the prop bets and a few other options, there are multiple choices that standout in the Super Bowl 53 matchup between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams. But it’s been narrowed down to just two that make a lot of sense and a variety of things point to them working out well at the end of the night. Let’s jump in and break down the two Super Bowl bets which could prove to be better options than the picking either of the teams against the spread.

*Note: All odds are courtesy of Odds Shark and provided by Bovada. Chris Hogan Over 3 Receptions (-120). Even if you want to base this purely on numbers and statistics, it makes sense to take Chris Hogan to finish above three catches on Sunday. In the past three games, he’s hauled in 14-of-23 targets, an average just north of 4.5 per game. While Hogan has taken a backseat to Julian Edelman and hasn’t found the end zone as often as Phillip Dorsett recently, this spot still bodes well for him. The Rams have done a great job against opposing slot wideouts, holding Michael Thomas in check last week, which means Edelman could have his hands full. While I don’t believe the Los Angeles secondary will be able to completely contain Tom Brady’s favorite target, I think we could see a large number of targets get funneled Hogan’s way. In turn, envisioning Hogan finishing the night up with 5-7 catches seems very possible, especially if this turns into a high-scoring game. Todd Gurley Over 3. 5 Receptions (-115). Todd Gurley has continuously made it known that he’s not hurt and hasn’t been playing with any type of injury this postseason. As NFL.com’s Kevin Patra revealed, the Rams star running back said he just played “sorry” in the team’s win over the New Orleans Saints. “I was sorry. I was sorry as hell today,” Gurley said. “I was sorry. So, C.J. (Anderson) did his thing. The whole team did its thing. Everybody kept me up during the game. That’s why it’s a team sport. This is the greatest team sport in America. It takes everybody, everybody on the team and that’s what we did.”. The good news is that Gurley isn’t hurt. The bad news is that he had just five total touches in the NFC Championship Game, one of which was a catch. So why are we targeting the over on his receptions against the Patriots? Sean McVay knows the deal and openly made it known that they need to “get him more opportunities.”. Throughout the 2018 NFL regular season, the Patriots allowed just six rushing touchdowns and 1,490 yards to opposing running backs. The touchdown mark comes in as the second-lowest in the NFL, but they’ve also given up 88 receptions for 776 yards to the position, per ESPN. That obviously bodes well for Gurley, but how the Patriots’ two playoff games have gone makes this even more appealing. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, they gave up seven catches to running backs. Then in the AFC Championship Game, the Patriots allowed Damien Williams to catch five passes for 66 yards and two touchdowns while Spencer Ware tacked on one catch for good measure. Although C.J. Anderson has impressed on the ground since joining the Rams, he’s totaled just one catch for five yards this postseason. During the regular season, Gurley’s 59 receptions were the third most on the team and the next-closest running back was Malcolm Brown with five catches. It’s tough not to like these two bets based on the matchups and history of each player. Obviously, anything can happen, but both of these spots make sense for Hogan and Gurley to have success and clear the above numbers.

Conan Checks Out A PC Bang

if you’re a gamer in Korea, you probably spend time at a PC bang. These are 24-hour video game cafes where die-hards play for hours on end. This gentleman’s Won-Jae, he speaks English really well.

You’ve seen me play video games online, you said. Yes, yes. You think I’m good. Kind of. (laughter) Okay, what do you really mean by that?

No. (laughing) No, okay. Show me what’s the most popular game in Korea. What do I want to see?

Starcraft. You can click on with your right mouse. Yea And those zergs will go kill them. Kill them, kill them, kill them! Kill them.

Am I doing a good job? Yes So now what do I do, do I just wait? Yeah. You know what? Maybe you should just play this game and I should go find a place to have alcohol?

Sounds good. (video game music) What’s the longest you’ve spent in a PC bang? (sighs) 14 hours? You’ve spent 14 hours in a PC bang? But that was because I was drunk and didn’t have anywhere to go.

And so I played games for 14 hours. Is that why the seats are plastic? You just urinate while you’re playing?

(laughter) I’ve never urinated while I was playing. (laughter) I’m told that Koreans spend so much time playing these games that you can order snacks. What’s this one called, do you know? That’s squid chips.

Squid chips. These are chips that taste like squid? Mhm. Okay.

Is that a popular snack here? I guess. I guess some people like it, some people don’t. Right, you just described most foods.

Good for you, Jae-Won. It’s Won-Jae. Oh, Won-Jae. Well, I’m sorry. I’m high on squid chips. (laughter) What’s this right here?

Those are king shells. King shells? What does that mean?

You know, a shellfish? So a king shellfish. So basically, you guys take whatever you just find on the beach at low tide and you eat the rest.

That’s about it. Okay. Oh my God.

What is this? It’s egg dipped in soy sauce. Why would you. I just think an egg is not something you would sell like a, this is like an M&M packaging. And there’s this snack. Can you tell us what this is right here?

It’s called silkworm pupa. When a silkworm makes a cocoon, you take the silk away. You boil it with soy sauce and you eat it. Is this something you enjoy?

Yeah, I kind of like it. Okay. Have you ever tried it?

No. Okay. I just won. You just won? Yeah. Really?

Yeah. Wow, that was joyless. Victory.

Yeah, victory. You won. Could we change to a game that I might have some chance of understanding? Yes. That was, what we Americans call a shit show for me.

They say Korean Counter-Strike so you would be shooting other people in this game. Okay. (loud typing) (laughter) You playing video games, it looks like you work at a bank. (laughter) (typing) (laughter) I’d like an aisle seat.

And what my favorite plan was. Now we can begin the game? Yes Or does this just give us the privilege of writing 7,000 other lines of code? Well, there will be no more typing unless you want to insult someone on the game. What are common insults in Korea? They talk about your family a lot.

Really? Yea Mean things about your family? Very mean things about your family. It seems like such a polite culture. So we’re using an N16 rifle right now.

Okay. You got AK-47 or a sniper. So what kind of gun would you like?

I think my best weapon is this music. I think that’s gonna help ward off any foe who comes my way. Where do I go?

Go into this way Okay then what? Space W Okay, W. W, what did I do wrong? You just got killed.

I got killed that quickly? It took us about an hour to get loaded! (yelling) Yes, yes! (cheering) What’s happening? Why is that woman, we’re looking up her skirt, and she’s dancing. What is happening?

(Won-Jae laughs) What is this? I don’t even know what’s happening! (laughs) Why is this happening in a game? That was the weirdest episode of Teletubbies I’ve ever seen.

(laughter) Is there any way I can taunt other people? Yes. Why don’t you write, “Your family eats soy eggs.” Rotten soy eggs.

Your mother does not prepare squid properly. They’re ignoring me? Yea, they’re ignoring you. I am Conan O’Brien and I am playing this game right now. Oh, he’s like, “so what?”

(laughing) So what? I’m going to call you soy egg. He says you’re really not funny.

Then say that’s proof that this is Conan O’Brien.

2019 Video Games We Can’t Wait To Play

2018 was a stellar year for video games, but now, it’s time to look to the future; the near future that is! 2019 boasts a release schedule that has many a gamer excited, and promises a whole lot of action packed titles, sequels and new IPs that fans will no doubt dive into head first. There’s a lot of great new titles that have been announced that are intruging, big projects that will finally come to fruition, and sequels to massive franchises that will hopefully satisfy long term fans of some of the industry’s most beloved series. So today, we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 2019 video games we can’t wait to play. Let’s jump in!

10 Devil May Cry 5 Devil May Cry 5 was one of the biggest surprises to come out of E3 2018. And what a surprise it was! While rumours were astir leading up to it’s announcement, the trailer that was screened at the convention was more than promising, and also ensured to DMC fans that online casino welcome bonus nz was back.

Both Dante and Nero will be playable characters, along with a new character named V. The story takes place after the events of Devil May Cry 2, much to many fans relief. Dante is hired by the mysterious V to solve a series of demon attacks occurring across the globe, and Nero, who has set up an agency of his own, ends up crossing paths with Dante while he’s hunting down a mystery of his own. Devil May Cry 5 will be released on March 8th 2019. 9 Far Cry New Dawn At the game awards 2018, we were given a preview of a little treat that was leaked out to the press before it’s official announcement; Far Cry New Dawn. It’s a sequel of sorts to the 2018 Far Cry 5; a game that pinned players against a religious doomsday cult that, despite killing off all those peggies, did succeed in the end. Joseph Seed, their leader, set off an atomic bomb, bringing forth an apocalypse, and a new age.

Far Cry New Dawn takes place in that new age; the world has been mutated of sorts, and in the trailer, at first, it doesn’t seem that bad. Until a pair of sinister twins show up and all hell breaks lose. The trailer also hinted to the return of Joseph Seed, and some new animal companions, including a brand new little doge that I’m sure we’ll all spend time petting at one point or another. 8 Gears 5 Gears of War has always been a revolutionary series for the Xbox. Gears 5 promises to up the anty, picking up where Gears 4 left off, with a pretty deep narrative to keep you on the edge of your seat. This time around, the focus is on Kait Diaz who is bent on uncovering the origins of the Locust and her family.

But she’s not the only one returning; expect to see the familiar faces of JD Fenix, Delmont Walker and Marcus Fenix play a significant role in the story, too. The game will also feature online co-op and will support local split screen. An exact release date has yet to be announced.

7 Kingdom Hearts 3 Kingdom Hearts 3 is one of the earlier 2019 releases, set to come out on January 25th in Japan and world wide on January 29th. The Square Enix title is the 12th installment in the Kingdom Hearts series, and will introduce a ton of brand new characters from Disney properties. It also boasts a brand new world, along with a bunch of returning ones from previous games. The story picks up from Dream Drop Distance, with Sora, Donald and Goofy attempting to search for seven guardians of light and the Key to Return Hearts.

6 Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 The Black Order The Game Awards 2018 brought many exciting promises for upcoming games, including this gem, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 The Black Order. Unlike it’s two previous titles, this game boasts a whole lot of new features, from gameplay, to story, to much, much more. It’s the Marvel game we’ve all been waiting for, friends!

It’s not only it’s quality that has changed; Nintendo is now the game’s publisher, meaning this title will be a Switch exclusive. 5 Man of Medan Our list wouldn’t be complete without a horror title. And Man of Medan is one of the most promising horror titles set to debut in 2019. From the team that brought you Until Dawn, Man of Medan follows the story of 4 young adults from the US, who have decided to go on a diving vacation. The holiday takes a turn for the worse and the group is kidnapped, and ends up on a ghost ship.

Enter the supernatural. The game will boast similar mechanics to Until Dawn, where every choice you make impacts your story, and can result in you subsequently killing off a bunch of the characters. And, on top of all of that, it’s the first in an anthology series called The Dark Pictures Anthology, so get hyped, friends! So far, it’s being hailed as the game that will revolution the horror video game genre, but I guess we’ll have to see what it’s like when it’s released before we start handing out any critical acclaim.

4 The Outer Worlds The Outer Worlds is one of the newest announced games to make our list. And oh boy, does it look like it’ll be a blast. Coming from Obsidian Entertainment, aka the devs who brought you the original Fallout and New Vegas, The Outer Worlds’ trailer promised a brand new world that feels like Fallout mixed with Mass Effect, and has a heavy dose of humour to keep you entertained to boot. It’s a first person RPG set in the future where megacorporations have begun colonizing and terraforming planets out in space.

You awaken from cryosleep to find yourself on a foreign planet that you need to explore, along with discovering that the particular corporation who employs you, along with others, may not have humanity’s best interest in mind. Similar to the Mass Effect games, the choices you make in particular parts of the game will determine what ending you get, so make decisions wisely! 3 Wolfenstein Youngblood No one was expecting a Wolfenstein sequel when it was announced during Bethesda’s presentation at E3 this past year. And no one was expecting that the sequel would feature two main protagonists; the twin daughters of BJ, the hero from the past two reboot Wolfenstein games.

Holy. Crap. The best part is, this means you’ll be able to play couch co-op, navigating the 1980s as you go around and kill Nazis. It takes place 19 years after The New Colossus, with single players choosing to play as either Jess of Soph, entering a new generation of Nazi killers after their father had ignited the second American Revolution in the previous title. Exciting stuff.

It will also be available for the Switch, too, which Nintendo fans can get excited for. 2 Anthem Anthem has been a long time coming. This one should be no surprise to all of you; the title has been in the works for years, and has been showcased at the past two E3s, with last year really showing off some slick content for what gamers can expect when it’s released on February 22nd.

From BioWare, it’s an online multiplayer action RPG that’s being published by Electronic Arts. You play as a Freelancer, an individual who wears an exosuit called a Javelin that gives you a set of superhuman abilities that allows you to navigate the harsh and wild landscape surrounding the pockets of established civilization. It’s an open world that you can share with up to three other players that promises that your narrative and personal progress won’t be hindered by online multiplayer.

There’s four different types of Javelins you can suit up in, each with their own distinct play style and abilities. It’s a beast of a game, and if Bioware has executed it properly, it will surely be nothing short of spectacular. 1 Days Gone Much like Anthem, Days Gone is a game that has made the rounds at various conventions and award shows, showing off it’s stuff and it’s wicked gameplay.

Now, on the brink of 2019, gamers can finally get excited about the title’s impending release on April 26th. Days Gone is an action adventure survival horror set in a post apocalyptic open world. You play as Deacon St John, an outlaw turned drifter and bounty hunter who lives on the road.

And the world? Well, it’s filled with zombie like creatures called Freakers; the result of a global pandemic that killed off almost all of humanity and transformed humans into these Freakers. The game introduced an interesting mechanic to the zombie genre, too; Hordes. At points in the game, you’ll be running from literal hordes of Freakers.

With a day and night cycle that affects the strength of the Freakers, you’ll have your hands full fending them off, as well as less than sociable humans who also want you dead. It’s got some Last of Us vibes, it’s got objectives that can be completed in multiple ways, and it boasts a lot of options on the combat front, with a wide range of weapons and stealth options for players to make use of. Initially the title was meant to be released in February, but was delayed until April in order to allow the dev team at SIE Bend Studio to polish it up. It’s also a Playstation exclusive, so tough luck for you PC and Xbox gamers out there. Alright, there we have it friends! As we mentioned in our intro, there’s a whole ton of games coming out in 2019 that we’re excited for, which goes above and beyond this list.

Honourable mentions to The Division 2, Skull and Bones, Shenmue 3, Resident Evil 2, New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, and oh so many more. Give us a shout in those comments below and tell us which of these games that we talked about, and which ones we didn’t, that you’re the most excited for. In the meantime though, thanks for watching! I’ll catch you all in the new year.
