$370 vs $5000 Fortnite Laptop Challenge


Hey guys this is Austin. Fortnite is the hottest game out right now and recently I did a video trying to run Fortnite on a $200 laptop. However, after that video I’ve had a ton of questions asking what is a good laptop to actually play Fortnite with? So here are going to be four of my favourite laptops at a wide range of budgets starting at 370 dollars This is the 2018 Acer Aspire E15 It’s actually the follow-up to the most popular laptop on Amazon that I recently took a look at Essentially what you’re getting here is not only an update to the eighth generation of core processors But also some key upgrades that are gonna help on the graphics side. Inside you’re getting an Intel Core i3-8130U Now bumping up to the 8th generation of core processors means that while this is still going to be dual-core They’ve added turbo boost basically meaning that as opposed to your processor being limited like 2.5 gigahertz or so This guy will boost up to 3.4 gigahertz all day long. This guy’s also rocking dual channel memory. Now That was an option on the previous model But you actually had to go and upgrade yourself whereas this has 6 gigabytes of DDR3 memory out of the box Now the idea that is DDR3 is a little bit of a disappointment But the important thing is is that because we have integrated graphics, Dual Channel Memory is going to make a big difference You need all the bandwidth you can give to that internal GPU We considered that you’re spending less than 400 ollars the rest of the laptop actually isn’t going to be too bad hardware wise. So you’re going to be getting a 15.6 inch 1080p panel. It’s not going to be super high res or super high quality But again, for the budget not complaining at all You’re getting a good trackpad, getting a decent keyboard, and you’re getting a wide selection of ports Including not only a USB C but Ethernet and USB A and well, ok I’m just saying all this because I really want to show you that this guy still has a DVD drive something that (uh) Pretty rare on laptops these days. So for 380 bucks got a little bit of everything So, of course, you should keep your expectations in check. With this laptop, We’re going to need to turn the settings down Well, we’re gonna turn them all down actually. So it’s like fortnite we have all of our settings cranked down and we were running at 600p But the important thing to mention is that this is a $370 laptop there We are getting a pretty consistent 30 frames per second in. And- -No, it’s not going to be the best way of playing the game at all but importantly we are actually able to play it with the idea that we are spending so Little and running on a laptop which is so cheap and yet we’re still getting a playable for tonight experience is pretty impressive It does this a little something about how Epic was able to optimize the game To really get it to be playable on such a wide range of hardware now, of course There are some other things that you’re going to notice when you’re playing. The fans are actually not going to be too loud on this Laptop, but the screen’s viewing angles are fairly narrow. So you do want to make sure that’s pretty much going to be dead-on AKA I had to turn it to make sure it looks good on camera and not to my eyes But the important thing is look it’s fortnite. We’re playing it 34 frames per second However, say that your budget is a little bit higher than three hundred and seventy dollars Well, that’s where this comes in. The Acer Aspire five, not to be confused with the Aspire E15 We’re just taking a look at. Now If you guys have watched the channel for any length of time you’ll know that I really Really like this laptop. Spending that extra money is going to get us a huge upgrade to pretty much all aspects of performance here So first of all, we’re going to be going up from a core i3 to a core i5 on this laptop That means that we’re going from dual core to quad core processor, which is a huge boon well Basically everything but especially when it comes to gaming four cores is going to be helpful The real secret sauce here though is the MX 150 NVIDIA GPU inside They’re going from integrated to dedicated graphics, even in something that’s going to be fairly modest like this is a huge difference when it comes to gaming on Fortnite as you’ll see our settings are going to be much higher than 600p with everything turned down with 30 frames per second. At least I really hope so because I’ve played this before and it was much better I like how I’m suddenly doubting my own videos. Like wait, this is, this was faster, right? But what if it’s not- -faster and I look dumb. The rest of the laptop is going to be pretty much the same as far as hardware goes There are some slight tweaks, but the keyboard the trackpad the screen are all going to be fairly similar but there are some other improvements on the internals here including we go from 6 to 8 gigabytes of RAM and Thankfully instead of having a slow mechanical hard drive This does come standard with a 256 gigabyte SSD. Back again to Fortnight, and this is a much, much better experience So not only were able to bump the resolution from 600 P to 1080 P But also importantly we were able to bump up the settings from very low and turning everything off to a pretty respectable Medium setting, and as you guys can see performance is not going to be bad We’re averaging in the neighborhood of 40-45 frames per second here now Don’t get me wrong. If all you have is 370 dollars You’re going to be able to game on the other Acer, but for my money spending $200 more to go from barely being able to run the game on minimum settings, to something that’s going to be downright Playable for pretty much anyone is kind of worth it as far as I’m concerned And of course this is going to apply to more than just playing fortnight So having a dedicated GPU as well as a quad-core CPU Means that this actually can do a bit of video editing maybe nothing too intense or a lot of 4k stuff but it is going to have the power and it’s going to have the RAM to handle that and on top of that all of This stuff including the CPU and the GPU Is going to be very helpful when it comes to you know Other games that are not fortnite, as if anyone still plays those. I really hope you guys can tell how much of a better experience this is. It really is kind of hard to justify spending that much more money than $600 when you can get something this this playable. Now, yeah, we’re going to be losing a few things So we’re running in the mid 40s on the frame rate So if we did want to get that solid 1080p60 experience Especially with higher settings as you guys will see in a minute We do have to spend a bit more money But I think for the most part this is going to be totally playable and most importantly, you know we’re not gonna die because it Decides to run it 10 frames per second in the middle of a battle which definitely doesn’t happen to the other one at all imagine those that you have yourself a massive budget of $1,000 to spend on your gaming laptop or more specifically 950 dollars. With that you can get the brand-new Dell G3 gaming laptop. This is a really interesting mid-range option So on the inside you’re getting some very high-end internals, but on the outside you’re getting something that looks a little bit more budget So it’s made out of plastic. It’s got a 1080p display But don’t let looks fool you. This guy has the absolute specs to handle games like fortnight and much more. Inside you’re going to find a brand new intel core i7-8750H With a full 6 cores to work with, this is almost going to be overkill for current games, certainly for fortnite. so what that extra power is going to allow you to do is Fairly high-end video editing as well as stuff like streaming. Stuff like that is really going to be very taxing on the CPU So having a full 6 cores to work with is going to make multitasking and streaming super-easy Of course, you’re also going to be able to play some pretty high-end games as well. Inside the G3 is rocking a GTX 1050 TI Now this is not going to be a crazy high end GPU But it’s going to be very much in the mid-range and importantly, for what we’re going to be doing, It’s going to be plenty for that 1080p display, which I will mention is much nicer than the ones on the much cheaper Acer’s It’s still not going to blow you away. It doesn’t have any like G-Sync or anything like high refresh rates But importantly the display is definitely not garbage town, which is always appreciated when you’re spending almost a thousand dollars. Interestingly, Dell offers this in a fairly wide range of colors So in addition to the standard black, that you find on most gaming laptops, you can get it in this which is blue or you can get it in a white and blue which honestly Kind of feel like I should have went with instead But on top of that you’re also going to be able to get blue on the inside. A nd what is really cool Is that even the backlighting on the keyboard is blue. It definitely stands out compared to pretty much any other black and red gaming laptop Out there. Don’t expect any major surprises when it comes to the rest of the hardware It is made of plastic So it’s not going to be the most solid feeling laptop on the world but there’s nothing really that makes me worry. The keyboard is decent, the trackpad is actually surprisingly nice and importantly you are going to get the rest of the internals to back up that awesome processor and decent graphics card. 8 gigabytes of RAM which can easily be expanded up to 16 gigabytes, as well as a 128 gigabyte SSD that is backed up with a one terabyte hard drive. Jump into fortnight and here at 1080p on high settings The G3 actually does a pretty decent job. So right now we’re averaging between 40 to 50 frames per second It’s a little bit higher right now since I’m looking at rocks, but this is going to be a playable experience Now what you’ll notice is that while this is definitely not the huge jump up that it was going from the integrated graphics to the MX 150 as someone’s chasing me and about to shoot me um But this is going to be a noticeable difference and especially when you’re playing other games That are, well, not fortnite, that extra GPU resource is going to be very helpful. No! They made me dance! No! No! No! Nooo! Performance though is actually really nice here. Now the difference between medium and high settings is actually fairly noticeable you kind of think about it is like going from PS4 to a PS4 Pro or something You’re not getting that same resolution boost, but you are getting what’s still a pretty smooth experience That is not really going to be held back too much by performance if high settings aren’t good enough for you though May I interest you in this? The assuit are OGG 703 aka a $5,000 gaming laptop that will crush Everything so not only is this going to be one of the biggest and heaviest? Laptops that have ever taken a look at for the specs inside are going to be absolutely ridiculous inside The Asus is rocking the Core i9-8950HK. Not only is this going to be the first core? I never put into a laptop, but it is obscenely fast So while it’s still going to be six core like the Core i7 model But it is going to clock way way higher. This one specifically has been overclocked to four point eight gigahertz. Keep mind I’m talking about a laptop here a six core 4.8 gigahertz laptop that my friends is Ridiculous overkill at its finest also inside this beast is a full GTX 1080 graphics card 64 gigabytes of RAM 3 SSDs and raid as well as well some future back problems if you want to carry this with you every day it is a Little bit large some would say a little bit ridiculous others would say kind of perfect I would say this my friends is the way that Fortnite was meant to be played so, of course we have full epic settings here because this is going to be a 17.3 inch 1080p panel we’re going to be able to not only max out the resolution but also the framerate so this is a 144 Hertz g-sync panel, and we’re actually being able to pretty much fully saturate right now I’m running between 130 and 140 frames per second on full max settings on my 5 custom helper laptop How I mention that this thing is ridiculous yet. So there’s gonna be a couple major upgrades between $1000 laptop, which most people consider to be very high-end and something that’s going to be this completely insane first of all, of course We’re running on full epic settings and you actually do notice a difference in the graphical settings have definitely been turned up but almost more Important than that we get a much smoother experience all the other laptops have 60 Hertz panels and while they look nice running at something like a 120 130 frames per second is So so much smoother So what you’re gonna find here is that knowledge is a response time going to be faster But just everything about it is just buttery smooth It’s kind of hard to see the cross on a YouTube video where we’re obviously not recording in such a high frame rate But in person it looks absolutely insane. You’re such a contrast in the beginning this video. I was playing on a $370 laptop with integrated graphics running on minimum settings like 30 frames per second and now we’re playing on one of the most expensive laptops in the world with the highest settings across the board on fortnight and Yeah, it’s a slightly different experience. I got to say so there you have it the best laptops to play fortnight with in 2018 So of course, there’s good budget options There’s some really good options in the middle or if you want to be totally insane and show off to all your friends You can start saving $5,000 now

The Dark Side of the Video Game Industry | Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj | Netflix


Tonight I want
to talk about video games. All right? Video games were a huge part
of my life growing up. My console was N64. Mario Kart, Smash Brothers,
and my personal favorite GoldenEye. You guys know the rules, right? License to kill, slappers only, no Oddjob. You guys remember Oddjob? You couldn’t kill him
because he was shorter than R2-D2. But now, video games are so much bigger,
and there’s no better sign than what went down
in New York City last weekend. A huge tournament at Arthur Ashe Stadium
in Queens, and we ain’t talking tennis. “This is the Fortnite World Cup Finals.” “Sixteen-year-old Kyle ‘Bugha’
Giersdorf is waking up $3 million richer. The first ever
Fortnite World Cup Champion.” “There’s his family looking on. And there’s the dance. I don’t know what that is.” That is the dance of someone who no longer has to stay married
for the kids. You know five seconds after that
he downloaded Hinge. Now, gaming culture is popular culture. It’s the new social currency. Right? You can’t be a kid
and not play Minecraft, which is why in just a few years, gaming has exploded in a way
it never has before. Gamers have sent the video gaming industry
to record levels. Netflix says that
Fortnite is a bigger threat than HBO. Red Dead Redemption 2 made $725 million
in its opening weekend. This is a bigger new industry -than marijuana.
-Absolutely. He’s like, “Marijuana, it’s a medicine that comes in a biscuit. Brilliant!” Now, the gaming industry has grown faster
than anyone could have ever imagined. It is now a $139 billion a year business. In terms of revenue, that’s bigger than
worldwide box office, music streaming and album sales,
the NFL, the NBA, MLB, and the NHL combined. Yeah, every sports league right now
is terrified, except for the NHL. They’re like, “Yay, we made the chart!” Think about this, this is insane.
Add up Kanye, Tom Brady, LeBron James, and Mike Trout and they are still no match
for a Swedish dude named Felix, who loves the n-word. One of the biggest reasons video games
have blown-up is live streaming, which is exactly what it sounds like. Gamers stream themselves playing games
in real time… even during natural disasters. Bro, it’s an earthquake,
100% it’s an earthquake. Holy shit! That’s actually strong. Oh, fucking wiggling! Whoa! Oh, this motherfucker moving, moving. Oh, shit! Muffin! Okay, Muffin is his dog, but I like to think
that it’s his safe word. He’s like, “Muffin! Brioche! Why isn’t it working?” Millions of people watch gamers
live stream on Twitch, the world’s biggest streaming platform,
and it gets 15 million visitors a day, which has transformed games like Fortnite,
PUBG, and League of Legends into enormous sporting events. Activision’s Overwatch League
has kicked off its new season. “Take-Two’s NBA 2K League
launched its second annual draft.” “A $74,000 prize.
Their game of choice? Counter-Strike.” “Call of Duty World League Tournament.” “The final of this tournament drew
more viewers last year than game six of the 2015 NBA Finals.” This is where things are going. I swear. Next year, you’re gonna
see Jay-Z and Beyoncé sitting courtside watching a pasty 16-year-old kid
play Fortnite. They’re like,
“Jay, who are you here to see?” And he’s just like, “My man, Buttsoup98.” It’s the Rock. Video games have become a cultural force unlike anything
since the creation of television. Two and a half billion people
play video games. Business is booming.
Gamers are treated like athletes, and yet, the gaming industry is filled
with stories like these. Video game maker Electronic Arts says
it is laying off 350 employees. The studio behind BioShock,
closing its doors and laying off most of its employees. Zynga announced that it will be cutting 5%
of its workforce. Activision Blizzard slashing
about 800 jobs. That’s 8%
of the video game maker’s workforce. Jeez, game companies treat their workers
like pedestrians in Grand Theft Auto. They’re like, “There’s just gonna be
some collateral damage.” Many of the most profitable
American game companies routinely lay off huge chunks
of their staff. And it’s part of a larger pattern
of labor exploitation in the gaming industry. Because it turns out the games
that we play to relax are built on ruthless worker burnout. That’s what I want to focus on tonight,
video games and labor. In the past two years alone, we found over 20 companies
that have laid off thousands of workers. Sometimes with no warning
and no severance. Like in the case of Telltale Games,
best known for The Walking Dead, which is based on a TV series
that just won’t die. I don’t know if you watch –
I mean we’re on season nine, you guys. Just shoot it in the head and end it. They’re zombies not the Simpsons. Now, you may not have heard very much
about this, and that’s not an accident. When we were researching this story, very few people were willing
to talk to us on camera. A lot of game workers sign NDAs, and they’re afraid of getting blacklisted,
but one worker agreed to talk to me. Emily Grace Buck, a game developer
who used to work at Telltale. She was there
the morning they fired everyone. Tell me about the horrific day
at Telltale. We get to the conference room,
everybody’s standing around, we walk in and the CEO is making jokes. He’s got a microphone
standing in front of everybody. He’s trying to make us laugh. So he opened up the meeting
to fire you guys by doing a set? Yes, and then he sat down and just said,
“Our journey has ended.” We were getting no severance. Our health insurance was only lasting
until the end of the week. They told us that we only had 30 minutes
to leave the building. We were expected to leave very quickly. To me, Telltale sounds like
a really bad boyfriend who was like,
“I’m telling you, like, this is great. We’re going the distance.” And then two weeks later was like,
“This is the end of our journey.” One of the things that’s scary
about games though is they’re all kind of bad boyfriends,
and you just need to pick which kind of bad you can live with. Working in the gaming industry shouldn’t be worse
than using Tinder in Boston. Think about it. Imagine being ghosted
by some dude named Parker who’s also in charge
of your health insurance. That’s what every gaming company is. Cyclical layoffs are just the start,
though. One of the worst issues in gaming
is the hours. I worked about seven days a week
between 14 and 16 hour days. “And when would you go home?” I would go home
when I was ready to collapse. Other people refused to do overtime,
and all of a sudden, their reviews were negative,
and they were fired. I lived away from home
for almost three months, uh, helping get the game done. I didn’t see my friends, my family
for a while. Although,
I was allowed some conjugal visits. Cool. I’m sure your wife loves
being referred to as a prison luxury. He’s like, “Hey, babe.
Can you come to the office? The warden says we can smash.” Now, leading up to the release of a game, companies often work their employees
for months nonstop with no overtime pay just
to hit deadlines. Almost every major gaming company
does this: EA, Rockstar, Epic, Activision, BioWare.
There’s actually a term for it. It’s called “crunch,” and it’s practically mandatory
if you want to work at a major studio. 95% of game developers say that
they’ve crunched or worked overtime, and over 80% of them say that they
weren’t paid for the extra hours. And it’s not like your typical video game
workers are getting stock options. At best, they’re getting carpal tunnel and their nephew’s respect,
which doesn’t pay shit. Crunch wrecks people mentally
and physically. Workers say months of crunch
have caused PTSD, memory loss, and ulcers
that make them cough up blood. Yeah, it sounds like video games
are being made in a Civil War hospital. By the way, it gets worse, and that’s because
of one game in particular. “And there’s the dance.
I don’t know what that is.” It’s Fortnite, the second biggest reason Drake is friends
with 14-year-olds. Now, Fortnite… Why are you texting them?
In what scenario do you text them? This isn’t a Big Brother,
Big Sister thing. It’s just fucking weird. If you don’t know the joke,
he texts Millie Bobby Brown about boys. It’s fucking bizarre. Now, Fortnite was created
by Epic Games in 2017, and now has 250 million players worldwide and has made over $3.9 billion, making Epic’s founder Tim Sweeney
a multi-billionaire, which is frustrating when you find out
how terribly he spends his money. Why does it feel like a combination
of MTV Cribs and Making a Murderer? He has to be the only tree hugger
who makes trees feel uncomfortable. Now look, games like Fortnite,
Apex Legends, and League of Legends are making crunch even worse because they’ve built their businesses on something called
“The Microtransaction Model.” Now look at Fortnite, they let everybody download the game
for free, but then they charge you for additional features,
like dance moves for your characters, “skins,” and tools,
like axes and hang gliders. Fortnite is using the same business model
as drug dealers. They give you the shit for free. They get you hooked,
and then before you know it, you’re sucking someone’s dick
for a candy axe. We’ve all been there. Don’t judge. Now this business model, it’s great for players and Tim Sweeney’s
weird-ass rock collection, but it is a nightmare for workers.
To keep players happy Fortnite has to roll out new features
all the time, which means for developers,
crunch never ends. And guess what? Epic workers say
that their managers expect them to crunch without complaining,
otherwise they might get fired. On top of all of this, players expect graphics to get better
and better every year. Just look at GTA. It went from
a Chuck E. Cheese arcade game to a deepfake of murder. Here’s the thing people don’t realize… graphics and animations
take a lot of work. I mean, making high quality visuals
can be really time intensive. And I know this because
sometimes our graphics team has to work really long hours. I mean, look at this, you guys.
Look at this design. This doesn’t just happen overnight, okay? And I’ll be honest, I haven’t been great
about giving our team enough time. But you know what? At the end of the day, I can go to sleep at night knowing
that I’ve made a lot of progress. But the thing is crunch and layoffs
aren’t two separate issues. Games have hard release dates.
They can’t just fall behind schedule. So companies staff up,
crunch their employees, then they lay people off
when the game comes out. They’re given so much work
and then none at all. They basically treat people the way all
of us treated Freddie Prinze Jr. It was just everything and then nothing. I’m looking for him, too. What?
Where is he? Freddie, come back. And they can do that
because there’s an endless supply of people willing to work in gaming. That passion is something that
prestigious colleges are happy to take advantage of. Hi, Mark. Heard about what happened
with your job. Maybe now you should do something
you enjoy. -Like what, something with video games?
-Yeah. Hey, guys. Finished testing that game yet? We just finished level three and need to tighten up
the graphics a little bit. Great. I can’t believe we got jobs doing this. I know, and my mom said I would never
get anywhere with these games. That is the whitest video of all time. You have a blonde dude in a pink polo, playing video games, yelling at his mom
for not believing in him. By the way, that last ad
couldn’t be further from reality. First of all, I’m pretty sure
“tightening up graphics” isn’t a thing. But the most unrealistic part of this ad was the fact that these two Chads
had a female supervisor, and they treated her with respect. Look, gender discrimination is another huge labor issue in gaming, which is probably the least surprising
thing you’ve learned tonight. It’s like finding out Mike Pence
pulls his underwear down to his ankles when he pees. New information? Yes. Surprising? No. Even though women now make up
half of all gamers, the industry is almost 75% male, which is obvious
when you look at any female character. I mean take a closer look. As you can see, all of these women
have one thing in common. Look closely. It’s their attitude. So much attitude. It’s just bursting through the screens. Developer surveys consistently find
that discrimination and sexism are endemic
to the gaming industry. But to understand how bad it’s gotten, we have to look at one company
in particular that is crushing it
on the sexism leaderboard. Riot Games just can’t escape controversy. This week the League of Legends developer
was slammed with a class action lawsuit, claiming that the company fosters
a sexist work environment. This lawsuit, filed by two women at Riot,
lists specific examples of how “bro culture” negatively impacted
female employees. That’s so disappointing. Remember back when bros
and gamers were enemies? Now they’re united
over their mutual fear of women. Riot Games is a huge player
in the gaming industry. This lawsuit plus three more
filed since then claimed that women
were routinely passed up for promotions and sexually harassed. Some were also given
some very strange pep talks. One plaintiff said her supervisor
told her, “Diversity should not be a focal point of the design of Riot Games’ products
because gaming culture is the last remaining safe haven
for white teen boys.” Safe haven. Why is Riot talking about teenage boys
like they’re endangered sea turtles? “They’re migrating. Where will they go?” But my favorite part of that clip is the guy’s face
when she read that quote. “Gaming culture is the last remaining
safe haven for white teen boys.” That is alarming that this kind of thing
can even be said inside a company in 2018. That right there is the same face you make when someone says they’re excited
for the next Woody Allen movie. You’re like, “Oof.” These lawsuits were the result
of a bombshell investigation from Kotaku, a gaming news site that exposed
widespread sexism at the company and because of Kotaku’s reporting, the state of California
is now investigating Riot for gender discrimination. So I sat down with the woman
who broke the Riot story. She’s an investigative reporter named
Cecilia D’Anastasio. So, how did you hear about
what was going on at Riot? Did you just drive by the offices and
hear a bunch of mouth breathing and you were like,
“Something isn’t right?” I first heard what was happening at Riot when I was investigating
another gaming company for alleged endemic sexism, actually. That’s really, really dark. Yeah. I heard stories ranging from… women not being able to hire other women
into positions of leadership. I was also hearing stories about
other women being on the list of, like, sexy employees that higher-ups
at the company wanted to sleep with. A lot of men told me about the COO,
like, going behind them and humping them at meetings where women weren’t present. You know, I’ve always wondered
what a COO does. Now I know. The culture at Riot was nuts, okay? People said they saw not just dick pics, but their boss’s dick pics. Now, look, if you see your boss’s dick, at the very least,
you should get to host Fox and Friends. Even men complained
about Riot’s bro culture. Cecilia, in your report you said that
if there were no women in a meeting, one of the managers would fart
on someone’s face. -Yeah.
-And that is fucked up. -Yeah, it is.
-I mean, this is sexism at its worst. -How?
-Women should be in the room. No. -No, no.
-We only live in an equal society, when both genders can rip it equally
in front of each other. No one should be farting on anyone
in, like, a work environment. That’s fair. Where’s he at now? Please tell me like
the dude cannot work anymore. No, he’s still at the company. -He’s still at the same company?
-He’s there, and he’s the COO. He’s still the COO. He was just suspended for two months
without pay. That’s it. Riot punished him the way
corporate America punishes women who give birth. They’re like,
“Think about what you’ve done and come back in two months.” So when you consider all of this… crunch, burnout, sexism,
no safety net, no job security. You’re probably thinking,
“Okay, if it’s so bad, why don’t they just quit?” Well, that’s the problem.
They do, which sucks. This is their livelihood. But it’s also bad for games.
Video games are amazing because they’re made by people
who love making them, which is why the workers
that haven’t quit yet are finally considering something
that has never happened before. It is time, more than time that we as an industry
left behind the idea that our work is made better by our pain. A lot of people are saying… that it’s time that the games industry
was unionized. “At industry events unionization
is increasingly on the agenda. In Canada, the International
Game Workers Unite movement is attracting new members as crunch culture forces people out
of the industry.” Game workers have talked about unionizing
for a long time. But the last few years, it is becoming a rallying cry,
especially for Game Workers Unite, a grassroots organizing group that has actually unionized game workers
in the UK, and now, they have nineteen chapters
in North America. This is part of an even bigger wave. America is going through a historic swell
in collective labor action. In 2017,
25,000 Americans went on strike. In 2018, it was almost half a million. And this year, it could be even bigger, and the gaming industry
is riding that wave. After Cecilia reported on the sexism
at Riot, employees at the company were furious
and finally did something about it. They staged a walkout. Why was there a walkout at Riot? What was the fart
that broke the camel’s back? It wasn’t a fart. Lawsuits were filed
against Riot after Kotaku’s report. And a couple of them were forced
into arbitration with Riot. What is forced arbitration? It’s like, “You can’t take me to court,
you have to negotiate with me.” So hundreds of Riot employees walked out
in what was the first walkout in game development history. And I think organizing around that would
be a really good idea for game workers. Do you realize how impressive that is? An army of gamers… walking. This is why unionization is so critical
for game workers. Just look at the issues they’re facing: insane hours, no severance, unfair contracts,
sexist work environments. These are all issues
that unions were built to solve. They also make sure
you don’t get humped from behind. Now look, I get there are people
that might be seeing all of this thinking, “Aww, boo-hoo, you want me to care
about video game workers? Look, I work all the time, man.
I don’t get overtime. I’ve been fired, and my boss farts
in my face all the time. So what?”
Well, congratulations. You’re probably getting screwed, too. We all have to rethink
what a union job looks like. It’s no longer just coal miners
and steel workers lifting up heavy shit. Yes, those people need protection,
but so do people who work at desks. Right? This is the future.
If you work in front of a computer, what’s happening in video games
right now affects you. Other industries are figuring this out. While overall union membership is down, white collar professionals
have been unionizing in record numbers. Journalists, digital media, grad students,
presidential campaigns, and nonprofits. But so far, nothing in tech. That’s why this push
to organize game workers is coming at such a critical time. Do you think if one of these
video game companies unionizes, there will be a ripple effect
across the entire industry? I absolutely think so
because the same thing happened in my industry, media. Gawker unionized and then maybe a dozen
other digital media publications unionized in its wake. And I don’t see any reason why
that wouldn’t happen in the games industry where workers are fueled by passion
and are often exploited because of that. Gaming companies don’t want this
to happen. And a lot of people outside the industry
either “A”– don’t care or “B”– have no idea
what workers are going through. We actually refer to people
in the game industry as veterans once they’ve reached five years working
because the average career in video games is only five years long, and it’s lower than that
if you’re a woman or a person of color. Do gamers realize there are
all these problems within the industry? Some of them do,
and some of them don’t. But I think that if gamers
start caring about working conditions in the industry,
companies are gonna change. She’s right.
The only way the industry will change… is if players know how their games
really get made. So to get the word out,
I had to go where the gamers are. Hey, it’s Hasan. I just want to talk about
labor abuses in the video game industry. So I thought I’d come right in the game
and talk to you guys. -Let’s do this, douchebag.
-Yeah, sure, okay, I’ll just follow you. But reaI quick, I just wanted to chat with you
about labor rights in video games. -What?
-Oh, shit, you’re dead. -God damn it.
-Damn it, I’m dead. “This is brutal over here.” Not as brutal as the lack
of job security designers have. “Dude, you’re ruining the game.” Hi, friend. Do you have a moment
to just chat about labor rights -in video games?
-Move! Fuck. How come I only last ten seconds? You suck. Well, that’s why I hired you to coach me. Okay, so stop lecturing them
and get a weapon. Hey, just real quick. Do you guys realize that programmers
don’t even receive residuals -on the video games they make?
-Pick up your controller and shoot! I’m holding it.
You don’t have to talk to me like that. And here’s the crazy part,
if the workers complain, they’ll just get replaced. Yeah, they will straight up
fire them and– Weeee! Oh, shit. Lava! These companies don’t want
their programmers to– I was just gonna say unionize. No one wants to hear this. You don’t know that. “C’mon, revive me, man.” You know, PyssPapa69, I would do that. -Are you gonna be a good listener?
-Are you fucking serious? -That’s what happens.
-Hey, labor rights guy, over here. -Awesome.
-Uh-huh. Yeah, just go in there. This is great. Finally,
someone wants to just talk in private -about worker protection. Hey!
-Suck it! -Alright, I think it’s time to stop.
-No, ten more minutes! -No, let’s–
-Please! Oh, my God. Hey guys, can we just have a conversation about the benefits of unionizing? Come on! It’s the only way to guarantee fair wages.
Come on! Fucking hell. Shit. Fuck it. Shoot me in the head
if you think they deserve basic benefits. Thank you. I don’t want to brag… but I think I changed some minds. I’ll see you guys next week.

Building a $10,000,000 SUPERCAR In FORTNITE!



it's time to build a supercar look at that thing over there guys this is why we're gonna be building I mean that's not a supercar though Geordi so something that looks like this realize we already started but it used to be a super core yeah Josh this is my creation cuz it's green it looks good huh this is green I like that oh I don't know I don't know looks like but if that's everybody all right so we have to build a supercar before we start with the actual car I thought it would be a good idea if we first make a sketch all right so we're gonna start with the base of the supercar all right well I've worked a little bit on the base here looking like looking like a car shape looks pretty nice although one thing is I think the wheels gonna look a little bit strange here maybe we need to make it a little bit longer pretty happy with that I don't know looks a little bit strange so far but maybe it's because we built it in wood and maybe it'll look better when we shape it a little bit better with other things I don't know we're gonna give it a try guys all right I'm doing my best guys I have a great idea what if we make it a convertible then we don't need to work on windows which is gonna be weird because windows in fortnight it's not really a thing all right couple minutes later look at that we got the front window in okay it's like really angled and I like that it makes it look very sporty whoa all right but now we need to hurry up I spent way too long on that all right so do a little bit more work on the windshield added these beautiful side windows and kind of started on the front of the car still have to work on some lights we've got a beautiful grill over here which I actually think looks really good still need to work on the inside of the grill we're gonna make that look nice too then we're starting on the interior we've got a dashboard we're gonna have like a wheel there of course and we're starting on the back of the car look at this the engine bay is going to be right over here I actually think it's starting to look pretty good I'm quite impressed with myself right now I'm doing all right guys we finish building that's right do a countdown three two one go there it is guys welcome to my super okay it looks great but think is it a supercar like what what brand is this Geordi explain it to me so as you can see jelly this is the Dragon brand whoo I really like that's cool that's caught that's awesome it's part of the dragon brand Josh you're a pet is this for downforce right over here this is the air intake Jilly all the way to the back of the engine I want to show you guys all the little details I worked alright first of all we have the headlights uh-huh very nice nice alright guys so my car also has a front Oh lead this platform so I can actually get this is where you know you can store your groceries a little Easter Egg that comes with the dragon brand you can I like what I like these is a lever so if you pull it opens and and this is mandatory and it's like follow me right over here we have the windshield oh you need me then go behind the windshield we have a beautiful steering wheel that's a nice joy thank you to get her with a dashboard this is where you can read all day like oh we're doing so fast or yo we're running out of gas the things people with cars say this retro steering wheel looks very much rose thank you can I ask you guys a quick question what Wow is it two on the left or two on the right depends which cited they call those steering wheel is on the left side why do you have a clutch man I don't know 2019 look I got an old timer so you wanna thank in my head old timers supercar with a froggies clutch with the front look at this so we got a little surprise this is the handbrake or the shifter she might have known this car is actually a three seater you're in my seat jokes look I actually have a rear view mirror and you got some dials for whatever right the volume of the radio track yes Josh get over here so if you actually come to the bottom of my car obviously I might have seen this already but it's dragging along the floor no it's actually a fuel tank guys so this is what happened to this fuel tank that's that's just part of this visa how many litres he carries already eight you know eight liters yeah now follow me down water back of the car okay good [Applause] [Applause] that's beautiful that's a great lights a spoiler with the lights that's actually really nice thank you thank you Jim so cuz that this really looked like brake lights right yes with the engine the engine is this way okay yeah we're gonna ask that question so you just jump down and 16 v 16 cylinder 12 seven liters CC I was about to say you come 12 cylinder 12 sure yeah sounds good you guys like the engine all right let me go Smurfs engine bay I love it you're not allowed to film the engine just so he'd know it it's all really like secret law yeah okay I get it yes so that's I like what you did with this is he he's a bit blocky yeah I was really struggling not to make a blocky you know yeah I think you did a terrible really big compared to the call like human there's a baby car I think it's pretty not I think you should have disclosed it in that's why we jumped that little seat for you right over here oh wow here we go again little jelly sure guys actually have an explanation for the seats well have you ever been in a supercar and being like damn I have so much room in here nope it's always very trim good good job Jordi good job good excuse I like it let's check out your car – hey guys it's time for my car ladies and gentlemen turn around this is my supercar actually my supercar is called the Nitro one that's right for the of the night rules are so cool this is the core we're starting with with the bottom would he call this something on the bottom of the bottom upper which works for aerodynamic purposes in the middle we've got a beautiful grill all right but all the air goes through to cool down that engine obviously we've got three lights on the left and three on the right he's flexing that he can count yeah n stands for nitro yeah that's the cool that's the brand name of this car alright alright so let's move on to the side obviously we've got gigantic 11 or no no 21 inch wheels 21 21 yeah we've got beautiful windshield yep start very early on and goes all the way over here there sure is actually you like you could see the interior look at this before I start talking about the interior we're certain we're first gonna move on to the back of the car okay okay obviously we've got a huge spoiler exhaust clearly what's what what is one to seven to know what is the model of the car and this is the license plate 217 oh okay license plate number one I'm not the president so if you move up here we've got the engine bay that's right our v8 supercar inside it's pretty cool so yeah this is a window you're not really supposed to get in here there's a plastic window here but we didn't no no no you need plastic windows and supercars because they're much lighter you know you will go longer winkers actually what do you say yeah so pull the downforce you know this car is really quick we need to make sure it stays on the road alright let's go to the interior so inside first of all things LED lights on the interior that's right that's something a little more age you know yeah yeah we got these everywhere okay these are our retro styled buttons that's right you pull em push push yeah this is the left ones actually the spark
