    11. Soulsreaper

      when u say a company needs to stay in business this would be true is there actual gross revune was falling there doing these cuts and milking there core games more to make there actual gross revune go up cause they will have less spending even if it stays the same. that doesn't mean th ere going under.

    12. Whats it Play?

      i thought they didnt cut the jobs there was a post where they decided NOT to cut the 800 jobs

    13. Whats it Play?

    14. Steve Warwick

    16. mchawk315

      I love how proud Lawrence was of that podcast burn. lmao

    17. Adolf Hitler

      Plz that he joins PlayStation and continues his idea since I do like dead space from him

    18. Grumpy PugGamer

      I loved singularity. Great Concept and play through. Maybe they should revisit that and do a soft reboot?

      1. Slow Race

        Singularity was incredible. Heavily underrated game.

    19. Gamer Gob

      Sweet MST3K shirt!!!

    20. Gamer Gob

      Id rather have both of my hands cut off before I play another COD.

    21. NFL Superfan

      Activision is legit retarted

    22. BladeLigerV

      It seems Activision has fully been taken over my the brain tunneling parasite Callofus Dutius.

    23. Sameer Khan

      Advanced warfare is the best cod

    24. thekornreeper

      Not surprised.....

    25. Mike O.

    27. UnknownUser


    28. Hammie Li

      It’s always gonna be King COD and Queen Battlefield. Sad.

    29. Mr. Tattoo ASMR

      Its always morning somewhere.

    31. Capy

    32. Lord EDOX

      Bruce "Time of Duty" Greene.

    33. xsvmalice

      Well of course they would do that. They been selling the same shit with a new paintjob for years already

    34. Tramaine Terrance

      Hello, Humans. Sometimes in life, you end up on US-new. What does it mean? TERRANCE OUT

    35. Jar Mason

      Are the people at Inside Gaming on Cocaine? This format is horrible, =3 style, with a squeeze of Philip Defranco for good measure. Uninteresting! Bland, Justin Bieber level of awful. Reformat your show please.

    36. Witcher 3 and The Wild Blunt

      As someone who hasn't watched much funhaus or much of inside gaming back in the day I wasn't a fan of the Know getting absorbed but this is better.

    37. HickerYheT

      Lol good luck with that Activision

    38. SUB 2 FUNHAUS

      Oooh so we trending now?

    39. Vampurp THC

      this editing is annoying

    40. Terry Cawthon

      I do remember Advent Rising Damnit!

    41. CurrencY96 Plays

      I HAVENT HEARD THE NAME ADVENT RISING IN YEARS! Holy shit guys... game of my childhood, first introduction to choice in a video game.

    42. HotSizzleTV

      I hope we get dead space 4 that would be a dream.

    43. Dane Pacheco

      Dam the guy with the laptop is has the chrimson chin

    44. Ham Sandwich very sandwich

      Did you know that we epic -lewd- gamers are being oppressed by US-new's demonetization? Like where's our -porno graphics gaming content- freedom?

    45. Nathaniel Curry

      Ok I am confusion, I was subscribed to this channel and haven't been on this in a bit, it used to be the know...right? Either way as informative as they are they are so much more funny lol

    46. TheMex1kan

      Wait you know it’s activision, what was the last time they made something new? Yeah there hedging there bet on a false hand, I foresee them failing hard

    47. TDMJ4

      Cod is becoming worse and worse because of activison making everything with micro transactions they are starting to pull an EA. But nobody is calling them out on their shitty business choices.

    48. Todd Marble

      I am proud of myself for not buying this garbage anymore

    49. michael james

      singularity was awesome. Glen gave the world the masterpiece known as dead space. we need more games from him.

    50. NumptyDumpty

      The reason big publishers are risk averse when it comes to new IP, is because none of them recognise a good game, or a creative idea that will engage the player when they see it. They only see games that sell well after release and like brain-dead chimps point at it and say "That's selling great, make one just like it for me!" Even Call of Duty started it's life jumping on the bandwagon of the popularity of WWII shooters at the time. Fuck Activision. They are creatively bankrupt.

    51. Rav Ath

      Wait did you guys jus vouch for micro transactions?

    52. Vick KnewZeus

      Activision needs to try new IP all the time

    53. Gilbert Rodriguez

      Dragons dogma is a fucking masterpiece for its time. And is GOOOOOLD if Capcom does dragons dogma

    54. Rav Ath

      Anthem cough cough

    55. sdot422

      Why risk something new when they can guarantee profit from call of duty ?

    56. Kyle Kraft

      I'm in Africa, it's morning when I watch this show!

    57. Maldus Alver

      Every time They say New I.P. or Call of Duty shout "Fahk Yuu!" at the screen.

    58. Kyle

      Ps4 call of duty sucks hackers in it. i played a guy that went 103 and 2 ,94 kills and 3 deaths in team death match. Like come on. Lots of people just hide it better but this guy rubbed his balls to my teams face with hacks.

    59. Nicholas Berger

      I miss the know...

    60. Hubert Cumberdale

      I actually bought Dragons dogme three times.

    61. D bro

      We all need to stop buying cod

    62. AuzzieArtyst

      I’m still incredibly confused as to why OG Inside Gaming, now known as Funhaus, are now back doing Inside Gaming? Can anyone explain?

      1. titoruiz530

        Inside gaming isn't replacing funhaus, IG have their own new channel including the funhaus members and some of The Know members. Maybe they wanted to do more news again and incorporating IG with The Know was a good idea.

    64. Idk Idk

      Cod for life

    65. NegX

      Hold this L, Kotick

    66. Revenge

      i actually played White Night back when it released and it's honestly a pretty good game. i think a new IP would have done Activision/Sledgehammer some favors

    67. merces47letifer

      I get that this game is a joke at this point, but the whole smug, holier than thou attitude towards CoD isn't edgy or hip anymore. To clarify, I despised the last few CoD games and am proper burned out on the series for good. But, if people want it, they can have it. Being a gaming purist doesn't make you cooler or better.

    68. King Brandeezy

      Talking about the risk and difficulties of making a new IP and doesn't even mention Anthem. I'm impressed by your restraint. This was just the bash Anthem channel for like 3 weeks in a row.

    69. Susan Baden

      A code is farts

    70. John Dock

      Activation is now a total joke. And no one is in for the joke. Money is not a joke. So as the consumers, they’re not in for the laughing game.

    71. KapitanPhotos

      Thank you Bruce for he fun fact while I take my evening dump ❤️

    72. zambiekiller360

      Activision only focusing on Cod? Jesus cant save us now

    73. Cucubu Moon

      Other than the microtransactions I actually liked Glen Schofield. I felt he really cared about his game and both him and michael condrey worked hard on it. However, that's all overshadowed by the dawn of microtransactions (given the benefit of the doubt, I'd hope it was activision who decided it.)

    74. Shiina Ai

      I hope Blizzard just breaks away from Activision. Activision has been nothing but a leech that saps Blizzard's vitality all this time. Blizzard had to help them out so many times without getting any benefit in return that seemed as if it became a master-slave relationship and not a partnership anymore. Even when the merger happened, it happened because Activision was having a tough time and Vivendi had to help them out with the merger.

    75. James Hurley

      They're moving all their games to mobile! Isn't that wonderful? We can match the quality!

    76. MemoriesDestroyUs

      Activation will have multiple studios working on a single cod title at a time. They’re all in on a franchise that does good even when it does bad.

    77. Braeden Griffiths

      I personally loved singularity, too bad there were just too many mishaps along the way. To sum it up: Brilliant idea, but a most retarded execution.

    78. Conatus

      That sucks. Cod is garbage and only gets worse n worse. It hasn't been good since Black ops.

    79. Lt. Viper

      Activision can't rely on CoD forever. Itll have to branch out eventually.

    80. Henry Westphal

      Can you guys try to be like The Know? This format sucks

    81. Mark Pate

      Advent rising was awsome. They should completely reboot it and follow through with the original vision

    82. Perry the Puppet

      The dude at the beginning looks like a Bogdanoff twin

    83. JBroZ Tv

      People like Treyach should just make an entire game dedicated to Zombies. The Aether story is really interesting & the only reason I come back to COD. It's such a shame only a little bit of people will ever see it. Because it's buried under a COD title & randoms just assume it's shit like everything else for the past couple of years...

    84. Gaming Casualties

      Michael Scofield escaped prison to become a game dev?

    85. Gch Bcvc

      I like the know

    86. Gaming Casualties

      don’t worry they will change their minds once call of duty starts to fail

    87. Renato Antelo

      Every COD is better than the last. This means COD: 27 will be the best gaming experience ever crafted!

    88. QuackyPoo

      I would be mad but sledgehammer has consistently shown themselves to be the worst cod developers


      That's a pretty misleading title. I don't see a comment from Activision saying that they only want to make COD games from now on, they just said "no" to one pitch by one developer... And we don't even know what the pitch was. For all you know, it was a bad idea. And especially with how much gaming stocks have dropped this past year, it shouldn't be a surprise that companies have been a little more cautious than normal. What we need is new publishers to rise up and take risks, not expect established publishers with risk-averse stockholders to be rolling the dice all the time. EA tried two new IPs, one was a success in Apex Legends, and the other was a disaster in Anthem. So why did they take the risk? Because COD is kicking Battlefield's backside lately, and EA screwed up Battlefront as well. If the big EA brands were doing well, they wouldn't be taking risks either. I'd say give it a couple years and after Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward release their terrible COD games, Activision might be green-lighting a few new projects to potentially pad the profit margins until the next Treyarch COD comes out.

    90. darkpepsi

      I love Singularity and I understand it had its flaw but I want a sequel to it sooo badly.

    91. Kieran Matthews

      I missed u guys

    92. ROMEY RUSH

      The milk is still moist

    93. TheWildWookiee

      they don't officially own the IP for sekiro

    94. Brad Young

      Really liked Singularity! Got it at EB Games for lile 7 bucks during 'red tag days' back in 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    95. Frocat Studio

      Wtf no women...? Sausage infestation...unsubscribe! Peace oot.

    96. Markz1337

      They are one bad monetization system, away to be forgotten.

    97. Mike F

      Too bad for RAVEN in my opinion they are pretty damn good developers Activision should let them make there own game

    98. DOOM8976

      I'm 21 now, but I've been watching since you Spartan in Halo 3. Don't know if that makes feel better about your audience.

    99. Tripps_on_Knives

      i am personally offended. Advent rising is a great game. It failed cause it launched beside Halo 2 and they lied about a 1million dollar sweepstakes that wasnt real and they got sued into nothing. also majestco didnt advertise the game at all. they published the game made by two people. who loved the game but majestco wanted to focus on Psychonauts. instead of advent rising.
