$KIZO is a Gaming/NFT/Charity token that brings the fictional story of Kizo Ronin to life though a plethora of awe inspiring mediums. We are producing an Animated Comic, Limited Series Anime Show, CGI trailer, and a AAA Gaming title. ATH MC of 1.5M, current MC of 250K.
The game is an up-and-coming Action Thriller Game. The FPS Game is an AAA-level shooter game in a fantasy metaverse. In the game, players can compete in different game modes while completing missions, quests, or challenging themselves. Meanwhile, there is also a means to unlock time traveling and te
Devs know this but blockchain games tend to be "rushed" to get the product out in the market asap. We really need AAA game companies to create their blockchain games and have players ignore their shit games otherwise indie game devs won't step up their game.
Seems to be the case with all AAA games recently, rush an unfinished product full of micro-transactions with priority on average cosmetics instead of quality of the actual product. We're honestly going backwards in a lot of the main franchises and it makes me sad 💀
Your view on what nfts can be used for in gaming is pretty narrow, it’s more than just in game items. One example is being able to trade the games you own digitally. A lot of people don’t like owning digital copies because they can’t sell them. I’m personally not a fan of the “play to earn” games, but can think of a lot of games I’ve played where nfts implemented in the right way would exciting. I’ve recently been playing fallout 76, you can get guns and armor with randomly generated special abilities, I think it would be cool to see a marketplace where I could buy and sell these things. These are only a couple ideas from someone who’s out of his element on this topic. Your opinion seems to come from the assumption that you know what all gamers want, which is obviously ridiculous. I think the ideal endgame for nfts, not just in gaming, is people use them without knowing it. No AAA developers have released anything on the marketplace, but GameStop and IMX have said they’re developing. So either there are AAA developers working on the platform, or IMX and GameStop are both lying, and are dragging out the lie as long as possible. I guess it’s up to you to decide which is more likely, only time will tell for sure.
Ubisofts platform is a disaster because gamers don’t want NFTs. The only people who want NFTs in games are people who think their hobby will become a side-gig income generator and they mask that desire by claiming they want to be able to “own their in game items”, which makes zero sense because those items functioning is still at the mercy of the developers and game servers, and lots of games don’t allow transfer of items because they’re “bio-linked” to your character. How do I know there are no AAA devs using the GameStop market? Because there are none. I see none. Do you? Can you link me any AAA games using their market? Any official announcements?
Okay, so after reading that agin I’ll admit what I said about tezos was stupid. I may have typed that while looking through my crusty eyes as I shit this morning. You did do a good job of not acknowledging anything else I said though. Like the fact that ubisofts attempt at nfts has been nothing short of a disaster. I also still don’t understand how you’re so certain about the lack of AAA developers using the platform.
You talk like you know for sure that no AAA developers will be using the GameStop marketplace, which makes you sound like a clown You say there is zero reason for developers to give GameStop a cut of their revenue, but they have reason to give tezos a cut of their revenue? Unless Ubisoft is somehow using the tezos chain completely for free.
Ubisoft didn’t make their own blockchain. They’re using Tezos, a well established blockchain. And AAA publishers can use any chain they want. They wouldn’t need to develop their own. Just like GameStop didn’t make their own, OpenSea didn’t make their own, etc. Seems you don’t actually understand what you’re talking about. Also, I keep hearing that AAA publishers will be announced soon, yet all we have are JPEGs and a no-name show that you can watch via the IPFS link for free. Again: there is zero reason for any publisher to give GameStop a cut of their revenue when Ubisoft showed that making a market that can run on existing chains is trivial. Ubisoft beat GameStop to market and actually has real games using their product, not just shitty cash grab crypto games and used JPEGs.
Ubisoft is ginormous and not every AAA publisher will want to develop their own blockchain. There are multiple AAA devs about to be announced on the IMX chain, for example. Independent chains also limits interoperability, which is a huge draw for NFTs. For example, maybe FIFA and Football Manager want to do something promotional that involves NFTs that can be utilized in both their games. Also, even just the mobile market alone is a huge opportunity for NFTs. Don't even need to consider AAA studios making console/PC games to understand the potential.
Doesn’t change the precedent they set though. AAA game developers can easily make their own marketplace for their cosmetics/items to avoid giving GameStop a cut if the sales. Ubisoft proved it can be done by beating GameStop to market. Given AAA development shops exist to write and ship software, making a marketplace — which is just software — is a trivial exercise for them should they decide they want to join the NFT trend.
This was a major reason for 2008–hiding toxic assets as AAA securities balance statements. Dick Fuld signed off on the financial statements for Lehman Brothers. Didn’t mean a damn thing. None of these guys faced any real penalties so Sarbanes Oxley is all bark and no bite IMO.
Yes and people also make money in regular Ponzi schemes - for a b period of time - before everything comes crashing down. I think the recent spectacle of crypto being treated as a AAA investment sector and given some level of validation by hiring celebrities and influencers as shills has been shameful.
Oh absolutely, you can invest in a million safer things, AAA bonds are available with decent Yields to maturity, EM etfs a have great value in them, even US indices have corrected quite a bit and many decent companies are available at attractive valuations. Crypto is for the 2-5% of the funds in your portfolio which are there for a little out there ideas. I personally can only see the uses of Crypto in failing/restrictive countries and currencies, there is no alternative to Crypto there and high interest rate regimes will lead to a lot more countries and economies becoming distressed, add to that the commodity bull cycle straining currency reserves of emerging economies throughout the world, Sri Lanka and Lebanon are just the first, there are many more to go. Political turmoil in Russia, Iran and China will lead to regular capital outflows and they will go to cryptos that can't be regulated and are liquid enough to convert into the currency of whichever country they are going to escape to, many countries like Singapore and UAE already understand this, and allow for direct use of crypto for many transactions. Another supporting factor for certain Cryptos is the effect of climate change and the migrations that will cause, Syrian war was the first of many wars that will be caused by resource shortage brought about by climate change, people, especially HNIs, will convert their capital into Crypto for safe keeping, as again a war ridden country will restrict capital flows as Russia did, and may even be sanctioned, further restricting legal capital flows. As Warren Buffet said "the only sure thing about the automobile revolution was being short horses". So in this Crypto revolution I'm only short collapsing currencies, and long cryptos that facilitate escape from them.
If this is a huge success and hopefully it is since it's a AAA game company then we should see a massive increase in the quality of blockchain games since people wouldn't be satisfied with low quality cash grab blockchain games anymore.
These were investment banks - they don't get bailed out. The reason they were in trouble is because money market funds broke the buck and they stopped lending to each other. That's the equivalent of tether losing the peg. But the reason behind that was the AAA rated investments were actually backed by liar loans. Again, a similar problem. The cryptos that people pour their life savings into are backed by even less than that. In short, you're gambling.. losers shouldn't whine, they should use the experience to not make the same mistakes again.
Well.....not really. No one (rational) really expects any business entity whose purpose is to hold funds from one party and dole them out to another (Banks, Brokerages, Exchanges, Insurance and the like) to have a 1:1 ratio of assets to liabilities The question is "WHAT is that ratio, and what kind of RISK is in there?" For an insurance company its around 1:6 on average, its usually a little lower or higher and depends on what kind of insurance they are underwriting....Meaning if they have 1M on hand they can underwrite safely (assuming they have a compotent actuarial dept) 5-7M in gross policiy coverage If a bank has a Billion dollars it can loan out a maximum of 970M (min cash reserve is 3%,)-- BUT those loans are VERY restricted, they have to be put into things like AAA Pension funds or Treasuries, A-AAA Corporate bonds, Mortages- They aren't yolo'ing that 97c on the dollar into Crypto or super risky shit Its not necessarily the Leverage or asset ratio that scares me, it's WHAT that shit is in....if my bank loans out 97c on the dollar and it's all Mortages to peoppe with high credit worthiness and Pension Funds I am not that worried, that's all pretty "safe" and even if someone doesnt pay their mortage that loan is backed by a real asset- the loan explodes but they take the House and sell it and get the vast majority of the principle back, if not make money on it anyway, just not as much as the loan would've made. If my bank loaned out not just 97c on the dollar but are leveraged and made $30 dollars in loans or investments on every $1 (30x leverage) and loaned it or invested it in the sketchieat of sketch- that's a big fuckin problem The problem is that this shit isn't regulated at all, or extremely minimally- I don't actually give a fuck what my bank does with its leverage ratios or COH reserves, because my checking account is backstopped by the US Government, it effects me 0% if my bank explodes tomorrow, ill just take 100% of my money out, guaranteed, and go open a new account at another bank 🤷♂️ You don't have ANY of that protection for retail investors/account holders in crypto People are dumb as FUCK for keeping any money on any exchange at ALL, they should all be used as a passthrough, money in to buy some crypto, crypto out to a wallet you control, crypto in from your wallet, money out into your bank account. Your exposure to all and any of these exchanges should be measured in seconds tbh
JPMorgan hopes it cuts in half so it could position itself better in the crypto space. Nothing fundamentally changed that should cause BTC or ETH to drop in value. This is a scammer who scammed people - the value of the dollar didn’t drop 20% when we found out all of the major banks conspired to sell shit bonds to people that were rated as AAA. That’s exactly what happened here.
Daily active users, yes. Now look in and pinpoint which of those applications are not just some settlement layers to carry other crypto things or lending platforms that lend out yet another shit token and so on. This is CDOs all over again. “What do you mean, these are all AAA instruments! Sure, I mean each constituent itself is dog shit and does actually it really carry that value but if I just munch them up I can pretend that this is a solid debt instrument.”. Same here. A lot of usage with which you could argue the whole blockchain transports some value. If that however only constitutes of tokens that lend out other tokens and shitcoins that are just speculative alone instead of… you know, using the Solana blockchain in a location where you would use a SQL database or similar (because you know, it’s a damn database in the end). But it isn’t. All that “you can write dApps on it!” sounds cool until you realise that none of the dApps are solving an existing problem. There is barely any actual value added. It’s all projection and hopium. And Solana is not better at all. And will go down too.
> It’s such a different world from the one I grew up in, when money is paid only when the game is ready. But we’ve been seeing that same bullshit in AAA console titles pretty consistently. Hype up trailers that make big promises, get preorders rolling, have some glowing reviews from gaming media, then release a sub-par minimally viable product because you had to meet the release deadline that was established a year prior. They fix the most glaring bugs in response to player input for free, and then try and shore up bigger issues with DLC. But it’s just turning your player base into playtesters that paid to get there, pisses people off and stunts the potential popularity of the game. Mass Effect: Andromeda and Destiny 2 somewhat fit the bill here, but Cyberpunk is what really comes to mind. I’m definitely keen on Web3 gaming, but it’s definitely going to inherit the problems of traditional gaming, now with added rugpulls and value collapse!
Notable quote: >It’s not rocket science: if something like Genshin Impact costs $200m to produce and took over two years to build, how can you say you’re working on an AAA title with only $4 million or even $50 million and it’s going to be ready within a few months? It’s just unrealistic. . And for many of these crypto games, they start selling you in-game stuff when the game isn't even ready. It's such a different world when money is paid only when the game is ready.
There are plenty of people building web3 games who give a deep fuck about the game being fun for their players. I generally have a pretty low opinion of play-to-earn games and don't have a high opinion of those. Not sure it's possible for a game to be \*fun\* and a job at the same time. Am also not optimistic about web3 games that are trying to build a AAA experience for their players. My bet in the short term is on projects that focus on building an immersive and engaging game world \*with\* their player communities. The Loot Project and Ethermore are two projects that are developing along these lines (not shilling - I own no Loot assets, and a single Ethermore NFT).
I just TRIED to use PayPal to send some money to a client for services rendered, and they automatically held the deposit for 21 days, unless the client cancels and refunds the payment. PayPal reminds me of AAA. AAA sued to be worth a damn, now they're not. I was locked out, with a dead battery. 5 years ago, one guy from AAA could handle that, and bring you some gas. Now, that was literally 3 calls (One guy couldn't handle the lockout, so he left, and I had to call back. One call to get the lockout handled. Another call to get the battery jumped.). America has turned into a service industry........and our service swallows!
check out Nyan Heroes. they are developing a AAA game on solana. the director of hitman absolution, and other talents that worked on tombraider and assassins creed are on board currently they are definitely building a "crypto community" with NFTs and twitter hype for monetary reasons (parallel to development), but internally they are working on an actual game if we look at how bad overwatch 2s monetization is, its fair to say the gaming industry has become mainstream enough over the last decade or so that revenue consideration consumes a large portion of the products purpose. this obviously hurts the output of quality games but still leaves room to make something real for gamers game devs want to make good games. most are still passionate about it. its the climate were forced to work in due to investor satisfaction that makes gamers feel left come shipping time 😫
I'm not surprised when even the AAA game developers have steered away from the fundamentals of gaming. It's all about profits, how good or enjoyable the game actually is is none of their concern (looking at you battlefield)
The only way an AAA company would this is if they had a backdoor to the chain, similar to how Circle can censor USDC transactions to comply with OFAC. They have no reason to give up control of their for-profit assets. There will probably be some blockchain involvement with some better known games in the coming years, but I wouldn't get excited about a major shift any time soon, if ever. Blockchain is just another data structure, it doesn't solve everything or magically improve on all current solutions.
Thing is, there's no real reason for a game to be fundamentally built on blockchain. Blockchain (as a technology) has some things that can be leveraged in games, but a game built on blockchain isn't superior in some way to a game that isn't. With that in mind, what's missing from blockchain games are the AAA developers who make good games.
There is plenty reason for blockchain to be integrated into gaming. Obviously it doesn't incentivize AAA studios to pivot, as they are already established in their own right. The biggest being that I believe players should actually own their in-game assets, rather than the way thingd are nowadays. I know it may seem unfathomable, but that is going to be where the space heads, on a larger scale.
No problem. Seems to be the only project building an actual fun AAA game rather than these axie/pokemon/card games which no one cares about. They just posted a short clip of a pre alpha prototype build of the game showing off a tiny bit of the movement and gunplay
PC VR (wired) can be incredible, games like Half Life: Alyx and Lone Echo look amazing and feel immersive, I remember playing Lone Echo and genuinely feeling I was 'there' at times, theres just that annoying catch 22 - nobody wants to spend tens of millions making full length AAA titles when the user base is so small, and the user base is so small because for top tier VR it's crazy expensive and there's a lack of real AAA full length titles.
As an old fart who vividly remembers the .com bust, Crypto is going through the same PR track that internet companies were back then. IMO, it doesn't matter what what the current perception is. People will continue to distrust what they don't use. All it's going to take for overall sentiment to change is that one or two killer apps that everyone wants to use, not because it's crypto, but because it provides something that the masses desire. For the internet, it was porn (no, seriously). For videogames, it was the relatively cheap NES that kept your kids and husband entertained for hours on end. For VHS, well it was also porn. My guess is that the trojan horse for crypto will probably be NFTs (though they will not be named as such), for cosmetic items in a popular AAA game. Whatever it is, it will need to be something more than speculative HODLing. Once we that, everything else will fall into place.
I own both btc and ETH but I also know ETH will end up flipping btc due to the fact we are already seeing ETH moelre deflationary than btc now. Let that sink in... btc is MORE inflationary than eth now. Couple the fact that ETH has a massively growing list of AAA tier partners from Microsoft to Starbuck to JP Morgan to Facebook and you can see how absurdly low ETHs market cap is... Had we NOT had this god awful recession, we'd be looking at a 10k ETH right now... and when the market improves... and it will, big money sitting on the sidelines that are now being educated about Ethereum, will be the first to buy up and push ETH up to a valuation that is reasonable for current times ie. 10k
Tldr; Traditional AAA studios tend to keep everything in the dark until a project is deemed ready for its big reveal — not Neon Media, the publisher behind upcoming first-person shooter multiplayer Web3 game Shrapnel. Top-tier video games usually take a long time and require a large budget to build — three to five years with an average cost of about $80 million. The process to build blockchain-based video games, on the other hand, is different, Don Norbury, chief technology officer at Neon Media, told Blockworks. Set in a dystopian world in the future, Shrapnel is currently being built on the Avalanche subnet and the Unreal 5 graphics game engine. What differentiates this game from other Web3 offerings is its level of community involvement and its distinct gaming finance (GameFi) mechanics, powered by NFTs. Saved you a click!
The biggest issue with an actual fun web3 game is actually the same issue plaguing video game develoers.....it is legitimately hard to build a good game. Period. Like in all the realms of software such as frontend/backend/enterprise/mobile apps/crypto dapps/smart contracts/desktop apps/etc. video game development is surprisingly the most complex and difficult of them all. It's not just a science but an art to build a good game. Not only does the tech have to function but the feel/gameplay/art appeal has to all be A++. This amalgamation of disciplines all balancing together cohesively in a neat fun package is a lot of fucking work! This is of course speaking about an actually good game and not vaporware/asset flips. A good video game is easily the toughest thing you can create out of software outside of machine learning apps and even those can't stack up to some complex AAA games. To think web3 devs, many of which are barely functioning web2 full stack developers could not only learn solidity well enough AND THEN somehow build a game on top of that? Add in the time constraints web3 devs deal with and the odds of a good game being build in the web3 space is next to nil. Unlike video game development, web3 devs can't spend 3-4 years building their game. 8-16 months max is the timeframe for a lot of projects in web3. I am building a web3 NFT game btw. Wish me luck.
Good news. Let see if we can get a AAA game with blockchain. At least a blockchain where your profile is saved with some data so you can load it in future games and get awards like I have been playing this since the beginning or whatever.
Don't forget to take a look at Sensorium. It's a Galaxy with different worlds, built with AAA graphics. Among one that will be launched first is the world PRISM. A musical world, where the environment interacts with the music and senses. Multiple big artists signed contracts already, like David Guetta, Nina Kraviz, Charlotte de Witte, Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, and the lists just goes on and on. It's a global team with multiple offices, owned by a billionaire with tons of connections. Their partnerships are through the roof, for example with Epic Games (which is known for their Fortnite shows with top class artists). TIDAL and Roc Nation are both partners too, and both bought millions of tokens. They know the metaverse will be the future regarding the music industry and Sensorium is starting to look like the future market leader. Market cap of approx. 15 mln. Its insanely undervalued as the team has been delaying the launch due to market circumstances and more development, so the hype died down a bit. The circulating supply is pretty good, with the biggest part of the supply being permanently locked for in game purchases. The tokenomics are great too, with every in-game purchase leading to an instant token burn. It's all real. The metaverse of the future is here already. Feel free to ask any questions.
I never got into ONE despite the love it got from this sub. On top of not being able to really see anything on offer that wasn’t already in the market, the thing that kept me out was just the name. I just couldn’t support something called “ONE”. It just felt like the company that calls itself AAA taxis so they appear at the front of the yellow pages.
Failed shitcoin from a nation that conquered the globe in a quest for spice only to consider salt on a jacket potato ‘too tangy’. Makes AAA capital and their yachts full of ape JPEG’s or do Kwan and his interpol notice look pretty tame.
Thats the one market that won't be disrupted by any new products or technology. Plus whats stopping those 3 from picking a solid cryptocurrency and partnering with them to provide the same thing but with AAA Titles instead glorified fb games lol
1. Residential isn't the only type of real estate. You can buy a retail building with NNN 15 year lease, Starbucks, McDonalds or other AAA credit tenant's that often guarantee their leases. Or an small office building with a diverse tenant mix. Or Industrial building with solid, long term, recession resistant, tenants. You build pricing escalations that account for inflation into said lease. You can even negotiate a percentage of income from your tenant's business. 2. Maintenance and "jazz" is fully deductible under the property entities LLC, and will reduce tax responsibility on the project. 3. If a tenant trashes your place, assuming an APT or residential asset, you would have a lease agreement that holds them responsible as well a security deposit. Further, screen your tenant's and make sure they have enough asset's to pay for said potential damage. 4. "Real Estate is a liability, not an investment" summarizes my point. It's not difficult to make extremely consistent cash flow on any of the sectors of real estate. While there are ups and downs like any investment, you also will have huge appreciation in most growth markets in the US. Unlike almost any form of soft asset, there is an exact amount of land available. 1.9B acres in the US. It's not ever going to zero, with 100% confidence. 5. "house prices are coming down rapidly". Exactly. Another opportunity to buy below where we know the market can go. I personally wouldn't recommend single family, as it's better to diversify your cash flow over multiple tenants or have a business with a clear P&L on a commercial property. If you think BlackRock and Vangaurd are buying up real estate because it's a "meh" investment...
That was a single example. For it to work, it needs to be pretty ubiquitous - both in Indy games and in the AAA titles. The roadmap and driving adoption is the multi-Trillion dollar question. And that is where I see the gap. History is littered with great ideas and technological successes that failed because they didn't go from idea to adoption. I don't want to see NFT, Blockchain, and crypto to fail.
Why does it need to be about Bored Ape etc in established titles like Fortnite and GTA? I think the content and ecosystem will be a lot cooler (maybe just nerdy but I think it’s cool) for all this NFT media to be used in smaller or Indy games etc, or maybe a game out of left field to challenge some of those AAA titles.
I think at this point, there are real pioneers and it's more a proof of concept at the moment. I'm sure the best of this as yet to come. Maybe in the upcoming years, we will see some MMO economy and AAA games championship prize pool integrated directly with the lightning network.
Usability is a big plus for cosmo for sure. I guess my angle when investing for these various layer0&1s is basically what AAA type companies/projects are building on them that will drive the value in the coming years. Eth has tons or various things, sol has their defi and nft, dot has whatever they have which is lacking, cosmo has a handful of projects that get mentioned but can anyone forsee any of these rising in the top 50 in the coming years? Juno, stars, osmosis while fine, dont strike me as heavy hitters, but ill fully admit im not very well versed in the cosmo eco.
