TehAmelie: it'll be the most involved discussion of Stadia i have, uh, been involved in
beowuuf: i have about a hundred pages of "fire and blood" still to go, so yeah, i'm ready :p nudge me if we talk about sonic's 30th anniversary, i hear that's coming up soon

RockPusher: I guess it is better than a wandering monster?
EikoandMog: Oh, twitch added a superchat feature. I thought that's what bits were for.
beowuuf: bits are fleeting but the new message thingie is forever. by which i mean 30 - 150 seconds. Also it doens't seem to work yet and drifts offscreen anyway?
TheMerricat: FFS, I still can't believe the costs of their 'elevated' messages. $5 for 30s is one thing but $100 is just 2 minutes and 30 seconds? That ridiculous. And I'm sure someone on some channel is probably spamming them....
beowuuf: i prefer that high cost than low cost ones you can spam even worse
beowuuf: or would give longer time

TehAmelie: there's a Quake brutalism map back that looks real impressive
TheMerricat: @GapFiller Not of general concern but Skyrim released on GOG either today or yesterday (time is still fluid for me) and has pissed off most of the modding community again.
SaxPython: lrrSHINE Happy Friday lrrSHINE

beowuuf: @beowuuf i haven;t refreshed this page since wednesday so i don't see it either, but i think graham mentioned it yesterday?
Juliamon: (we have permission to purge ones that break rules, of course)
RockPusher: beowuuf as LordZarano demonstrates, I don't think the roll out to everyone is quite complete yet - though yes, I doubt this community will abuse them
beowuuf: @Juliamon sergeModLove o7
HbombAndFriends: Good to get a break from the Hurricane Ian coverage on the news. Good to see you.
TheMerricat: @GapFiller The Skyrim community does tend to get salty at the drop of a grain of salt but tbf, a long long drought of no updates to the game having three updates to the engine in less than two months, each one breaking mods.... I'd feel a tad salty too.

Juliamon: and presumably not on the apps
GapFiller: in non video game news learnt abt Cape Coral this week thanks to Hurricane Ian (ish) and frankly the mere existence of such a place is mind boggling
GapFiller: on pretty much every lvl
TheMerricat: @Juliamon They aren't creatable on mobile, but I think they still show up fine? Or something else was going on in the stream I sleep raided to last night.
Juliamon: and also not filterable in mod activity logs, of course, because that would be *useful*

TehAmelie: neon green tea sounds like it would be funky
Silver_Slip: happy leaf crunchy season
GapFiller: I drink that exact green tea all the time
saucemaster5000: I was really worried about mountain dew thank you for the reassurance
EikoandMog: Code Green
Juliamon: They don't and I don't know why!!
niccus: heat up mountain dew and brew tea in it
Drasvin: Mountain Tea instead of Mountain Dew
Invitare: drinking green tea made from actual mountain dew
TheNextPaige: Oi Ocha!
Juliamon: Why DON'T they make a green tea Mountain Dew???? I WANT IT
CastleOtranto: The was Mt. Dew Green Tea Amp Energy
HbombAndFriends: Mountain Dew is the nectar of the gods
Juliamon: Amp Energy doesn't count
GapFiller: yeh Chinese teas generally dont do sugar
Silver_Slip: i mean, carbonating the arizona tea stuff wouldnt be a stretch
gnyrinn: You can carbonate green tea, but I'm certain you shouldn't.
TheMerricat: mt dew does have orange juice in it.
SaxPython: Code Green
Invitare: just because it's orange, doesn't mean it's made of oranges
GapFiller: green is nice but my personal preference is usually titguanyam or bolei
fiftymcnasty: There is no juice in Mt Dew, but it is an orange flavored soda
Invitare: see IRNBRU
Invitare: which is made of iron girders
Silver_Slip: its general citrus but point stands
Juliamon: anyway, I recently lost my ability to enjoy carbonated beverages anyway, so it's all moot to me
TehAmelie: did something good ever happen to it?
Nukified: ah, Stadia failures
ThorSokar: or possibly, stadia is just kind of a mess
saucemaster5000: juice is just soda without all the annoying bubbles anyway
richard_ermen: About 4 years.
TheMerricat: @Juliamon !! How does one do that? And I'm sorry.
GapFiller: there was a period last year when the neverending Stadia Deathwatch was not unlike Sonics neverending 30th
QuietJay: Started November 2019
richard_ermen: Google cancels these projects usually about 4 years after announcing them.
KinoGami: the WiiU lived longer
ashteranic: This one only lasted 3 years.
Juliamon: TheMerricat It's either my autism deciding I don't like that texture anymore, or a side effect of the Topamax. But it sucks.
Drasvin: If they don't spend marketing on it, then they won't be out the marketing money when it fails. :D
niccus: this one died ahead of schedule as far as google products go
Silver_Slip: you heard it here first, chillpoint personally killed stadia
TheMerricat: @Juliamon :( That does suck. Sorry.
saucemaster5000: Stadia still sounds like a sugar replacement to me (and yes I know I'm thinking of Stevia)
TheMerricat: I'm still of the opinion that as long as cloud gaming not a 'game pass' type deal, it's a solution looking for a problem.
ashteranic: yeah, Google got bored of AAA game development in 2 years, which is an astoundingly short time for that
LordZarano: @Drasvin They spent a LOT of advertising on it. It was like 90% of the ads I saw for a good while
netn10: When's the preprerelease of Unfinity?
Juliamon: !ppr
LRRbot: The Unfinity PPR will be on 2 October 2022! (It's a Sunday this time!) More details: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FdSf2-lagAAf9yK.jpg

RockPusher: Stadia did last longer than expected - I should revise my expectation for when they kill their entire cloud computing offering
TheMerricat: @Lord_Hosk Yea but given it's ol'Pete, none of them have gotten past the point of him having a dev create header files for the project.

HorusFive: "Dont worry" Why? "Because we'd rather you just didn't"
Aenir798: Google is infamous for killing their projects
TehAmelie: i feel like by now we should know better than listen to the promises of hardware devs before they're tested by the software
DeM0nFiRe: "Don't worry we're not going to lay you off" -- Exec about to lay you off
ThorSokar: "ahahahaha, yea right, if your only 1st party studio closes, you're dead in the water"
GapFiller: whoa just had a contact lens fall outta my eye so that was hilarious and terrifying in equal measure
Snowcookies: Apparently Google had a stadia focus group on sept 23-26
TheMerricat: o7 Google Reader, Google Wave, Google Hangouts
ashteranic: haha, One of the first interview questions for Phil Harrison was "so what happens when google kills this" which tells you everything you need to know about the prospects
Nukified: any corporate "don't worry" is sus
KinoGami: you can always trust the people who take "don't be evil" out of their company policy
Drasvin: "Don't worry" generally induces worry
ashteranic: and it turns out, the answer to that question was "what happens is they'll pay consumers, and not tell any of our partner devs"
gnyrinn: @Nukified That always sounds like "The building is NOT on fire"

BlueChloroplast: @juliamon OOF

SaxPython: NotLikeThis BibleThump NotLikeThis

HbombAndFriends: That game is so going to get pirated. ;)
ThorSokar: That just screams how the C-levels at Google operate
saucemaster5000: I remember trying to return some movies to a "Hollywood Video" only to find all the employees outside a closed door confused to see a "We have closed permanently" sign and the store completely already empty
JessKay: @TheMerricat yeah, they pushed a big UX update literally days before - they _absolutely_ didn't know
TehAmelie: in a more interesting timeline, tomorrow the headlines would read "Stadia goes rogue"
Emu_on_the_Loose: This is such Google behavior. They are notorious for killing their own products.
SquidVorb: I still miss Google+
ThorSokar: Here's looking at you Pictaro
TehAmelie: i miss the desktop gmail client
Snowcookies: One of my friend was hired to work on Stadia and then moved to another department a year later

DEATHlikescats: chillest chill point hosts
RockPusher: Google is in a long-term train wreck - they have destroyed any ability to make a new successful product because everyone expects it to go away
gnyrinn: Or maybe they need a competitor or three to be forced to do customer service?
DEATHlikescats: truth. cust serv gets screwed by management alllll the time
Juliamon: My dad is currently grumpy that they're merging the Assistant stuff (relevantly, calendar notifications) into another program that he doesn't otherwise use
bytecaster: Yeah, when the first though of everybody is: "What do you think, how long will this last?" That's not great
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy! Guess who just got a new washer and dryer installed!? . . . and also had to scrub a bunch of grease from the floor that the old machines had been on :p

DEATHlikescats: didn't Roblox get a big boost from Walmart?
Snowcookies: do we get to get mad at the employees in game ? Kappa
TheMerricat: “It’s Walmart like you’ve never seen. Today, Walmart is announcing the launch of two new immersive experiences in the metaverse mega-platform, Roblox. Called Walmart Land and Walmart’s Universe of Play, the spaces offer unique, interactive content and entertainment for customers, bringing to life the best of Walmart’s ‘aisles’ in a virtual world.”
DeM0nFiRe: Did that tweet call Roblox a "metaverse megaplatform"?

DEATHlikescats: @nydestroyer definitely!
Lord_Hosk: Roblox is a bad place full of people who are... umm... Not kind to children
Omthebox: What content would it take to bring somebody into Roblox
SoulSurgae: roblox is way too exploitative for me to endorse
PharaohBender27: @woodlandfell Wait, like with real money?
ThorSokar: NO, walmart has always smelled bad to me
SaxPython: truth
TheMerricat: " said William White, chief marketing officer, Walmart U.S. “Roblox is one of the fastest growing and largest platforms in the metaverse, and we know our customers are spending loads of time there. So, we’re focusing on creating new and innovative experiences that excite them, something we’re already doing in the communities where they live, and now, the virtual worlds where they play.”
PMAvers: And then taking all the toys off the shelf to play with them and not putting them back where you got it
woodlandfell: yes
RockPusher: I wonder if someone has done a Walmart in Teardown that you can set on fire…
fubargames: I'm late. Is this one of those "no checkpoint this week" chillpoints?
gamercat88: i would play Roblox if there was Costco land
Juliamon: fubargames Yup
PharaohBender27: @fubargames I believe so
PMAvers: Because you can totally tell when it's a weekend because it looks like a tornado rolled through the toy department and half the store has to come after closing time to fix it
fubargames: Given PPR that would make sense I guess.
HbombAndFriends: My local Walmart (if it’s open) is probably thunderdome right now
bytecaster: @TheMerricat So their customers are either children or conmen, not sure which.
DEATHlikescats: Walmart, where they encourage employees to get government food aid, rather than pay them properly
GapFiller: the not so Silent Hills this week

TehAmelie: SIlent Hills are alive, scans pretty well
PMAvers: Yeah, at the end of the PT thing if you beat it, it was very heavily teasing a new Silent Hill
Nydestroyer: Game just starts up and says "Silent Hill" and then cuts to black
PMAvers: Silent Hill gacha, obviously.

EvilBadman: They're transferring all your stuff to OW2
mowdownjoe: My understanding is that OW1 is getting patched to become OW2.
BrowneePoints: yep all cosmetics transfer
GapFiller: also by the sounds of it OW2 is really going all in on games as a service type stuff
matthaus_c: Team Fortress 2 will have officially outlived OW1 Kappa
ANeMzero: The problem is they change a bunch of things like team size which makes OW2 really not "the same thing"
Lord_Hosk: There is Stuff to transfer over?

BrowneePoints: from early reviews, very significant

HorusFive: ahhh I see
GapFiller: kynelwynn that is exactly what it looks like will happen
EvilBadman: @kynelwynn If you own Overwatch 1, all their characters are unlocked
Mal2mad: well, teams are of 5 now?
GapFiller: EvilBadman but if yr dont...
EikoandMog: Oh good, one crappy system to another.
SaxPython: Novel
TehAmelie: Fromsoft likes to give people discounts for owning older verisons when they do things like Dark Souls on Steam, or Dark Souls Remastered
AveryCorvus: joke's on you, I deleted my Blizzard account after the controversy, so I have nothing to transfer
public_key_reveal_party: I think locking characters behind a paywall is a bad idea
TheMerricat: So chat, has the hubub about ABking being a shitty company cooled down enough that people are willing to give Blizzard games a look again?
matthaus_c: @TehAmelie which is funny cause they revoked that discount :p
BrowneePoints: and if you win you get bonus progress @LoadingReadyRun
public_key_reveal_party: a game can go like, 5-15 minutes on average I'd say
kynelwynn: @TheMerricat Not for me. Bobby Kotick still works there.
HorusFive: @TheMerricat Not for the State of California
EvilBadman: Yeah that's part of their New Player experience
They_Are_Alyx: @themerricat For some people yes, for me personally no
Nydestroyer: I am still on the no AB team as well
Juliamon: TheMerricat In general enough time has passed that the public has forgotten, yes
TehAmelie: most people never cared, people who did probably haven't forgotten. . .
misteline: @themerricat Not a chance in hell on my end
PMAvers: Who knows, maybe they'll be able to make a Japanese character that isn't a ninja.
DeM0nFiRe: Wait what a skin takes a year to make?
matthaus_c: taking a page from Valorant, I imagine?
ThorSokar: Did someone spill some cow dung in here?
Lord_Hosk: Why would it take that long?
HorusFive: Do they need to rewrite physics for those skins?
ThorSokar: 'cause that smells like BS
Nydestroyer: maybe there is like extra animations stuff in the game? idk
cmdrelk: a year to make a skin, what the bus?
SaxPython: Artisanal Skin...
public_key_reveal_party: I loved overwatch 1, but I am so tired of ABK bullshit and free to play shit
kynelwynn: That's going to blow u in their face. People are going to discover is "it takes a year" will be a lie
GhostValv: bespoke skins
Brozard: Ethically Harvested Skins
niccus: time to shoot genji until he dies
Nydestroyer: oh so its a bunch of skins in one
saucemaster5000: they're rendering the skins on a 1984 mac
KinoGami: cyber demon genji... as opposed to the first time they did cyber demon genji
CAKHost: You have to let the skin rest for several months to perfection.
silenceaux: The arms race of video game dress-up is kind of intimidating
public_key_reveal_party: @kynelwynn yeah, it seems like a bold strategy to bullshit that hard
Plasterboard: If it takes you a WHOLE YEAR to make a skin, something has gone wrong in the process
HorusFive: @Brozard Which button to doubt again?
Lazarus2511: so when is there a skin made of belts with individual physics?
BusTed: And then the animation speeds up by 5%.
PMAvers: So now the question is, how many of them are going to be rehashes of the character skins they did for Heroes of the Storm?
public_key_reveal_party: "Hey art team: git gud"
frizbehobit: Hello
EvilBadman: Skins take a while cause there's multiple teams and things. This isn't an issue exclusive to Overwatch, but we're all video game art teams who know how this works inherently, right?
KinoGami: oh save on's motto
frizbehobit: What is going on???
KinoGami: u recognize that
HorusFive: the harder you work the more they expect
KinoGami: i recognize *
TheMerricat: I mean that's Blizzard for you Heather, are you surprised?
ANeMzero: This is how we got the "Quiet Quitting" Nonsense. The idea that the extra mile isn't extra. :|
Lazarus2511: run at 80% like LRR
GapFiller: turns out overclocking people works abt as well as overclocking tech
GapFiller: worse even
matthaus_c: I don't really get the sense ABK cares about worker wellbeing
rubikdarkwill: @Lazarus2511 ... Yes ... 80% ....
Nydestroyer: When you are in an industry where you produce your workers via people who play the game you can burn a few artists :(
ANeMzero: the skins can now be removed from the body at will
GapFiller: !findquote Heather skin
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
PMAvers: Nah, they're using World of Warcraft tech and the shoulderpads will hover over the shoulders on certain characters.
kynelwynn: Y'know what people would have liked more than Legendary skins? The single-player experience.
GhostValv: oh the fomo
TheMerricat: I'd believe that LRR runs at 80% if we found out that Paul is secretly really Commodore Hustle Paul and has figured out a way to stretch time for the crew. Otherwise they are definitely working at near max. :D
Nydestroyer: Paul goes out on a limb that skin is attached to limbs
public_key_reveal_party: I really hate that FOMO stuff too
cmdrelk: Wooo fomo
HorusFive: I assumed they meant that they would expire at the end of the season.
kynelwynn: Holidays and the Olympics
matthaus_c: I'm looking forward to how porn animators incorporate the mythic skins and nothing else
HorusFive: That seems like a video game company thing to do
SaxPython: molting season
ANeMzero: WOW got a Tree mount that changes with seasons but that is about it
TheMerricat: Heather wants Nude Overwatch?
mowdownjoe: FOMO BS pealed me away from MTG. I just can't support it.
Mai_Andra: That would be a "mythic" skin, though...
GapFiller: Heather did once say skin is just a costume Kappa
Lazarus2511: LRR said they were aiming for 80% so they have room for new stuff in an old update they did. the mystery box one?
GapFiller: jlrrFacepalm
PMAvers: In short, basically like Mythic skins from League for events. Except they're actually bringing them back in a seasonal rotating shop.
TheMerricat: @Lazarus2511 I feel like they overshot. They work way too hard on screen for me to think that they are anywhere near 80
GapFiller: just imagine drinking that much kool aid
Nydestroyer: Congrats on being part of the Elite! *grind more muwhaahahahaha*
kynelwynn: That's not new for Blizzard, waaayyyy back when and Rested XP vs. XP penalty for playing too long
PMAvers: *They as in League, not Overwatch.
Plasterboard: This skin commemorates your participation in X event. If that is how it is communicated, I don't have a problem with it
SaxPython: lrrSHINE lrrPAUL lrrSHINE
SaxPython: nailed it
PMAvers: And don't forget, that one week of World of Warcraft beta where you lost XP when you died.
Pinwiz11: I had a Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cake a couple of weeks ago, it was awesome
LordZarano: "I earned this because I gave money to the company as soon as they asked me"
TheDailyMapleSyrup: I had a psl today
eshplode: I wish more battle passes were just "buy it before this date, complete it whenever you feel like". That'd help my FOMO so much
Crokoking subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 93 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Crokoking! (Today's storm count: 16)
Laserbeaks_Fury: The more you load up on FOMO though, the more you alienate players who weren't there
saucemaster5000: turmeric spice is galaxy brain pumpkin spice
kynelwynn: @Plasterboard It's less "participate in this holiday event" and more "played to complete the season pass (which costs $ to have access to)"
EvilBadman: @eshplode A rare thing Halo Infinite's been doing right
ANeMzero: It is easier to accept things only being available at certain times IRL because providing a physical product is very different from flipping a switch on a digital account
Snowcookies: FFXIV has seasonal event cosmetics which later get put on their store
GapFiller: Laserbeaks_Fury Hell yr risk alienating players who WERE there if its done badly enough
Brozard: That's similar to what Destiny does
EvilBadman: Destiny 2 does a similar thing with some of their cosmetic pools
Brozard: Yeah, some
Brozard: Can you buy it at Walmart World?
ANeMzero: Warframe had premium skins you could only buy at a specific time and then one patch they just decided not to do that anymore and they're now all available at all times
Laserbeaks_Fury: Like FOMO stuff has kinda driven me off Destiny 2
kynelwynn: Mass Effect Legendary Edition released the Pre-Order DLC armors as things you can buy in-game markets.
Brozard: er, Land
I_Am_Clockwork: Heyho friends
Laserbeaks_Fury: Or rather, I feel despair at all the things I can't do
LordZarano: It also very specifically targets neurodivergent people
matthaus_c: Wigglet!
kynelwynn: Khezu!
Lazarus2511: gotta catch 'em all hasn't been the motto for a long time at least
GapFiller: awww yeeeaaah
Banana_Swonk: Wiggly Diglet
SaxPython: long long Diglett
Mysticman89: is it a diglett with a wig?
matthaus_c: Wigglet, the God-Emperor of Dune
GapFiller: Wigglet looks AMAZING
TheMerricat: Wigglet? Did they create a Pokemon for Matt Wiggins?
Mysticman89: or more it wiggles
Laserbeaks_Fury: or an evolution
matthaus_c: he's convergent evolution
saucemaster5000: wigglet is diglet with managed expectations of performance
GapFiller: sooo chat Wigglet or Alolan Dugtrio Kappa
kynelwynn: It's a Pokemon Khezu from Monster Hunter
niccus: it's a geoduck
TheMerricat: Ok, that's just a parasite....
TehAmelie: it opens up even more questions about the underground
mowdownjoe: It's an eel. Of sorts.
BlueMechanic: I think it's more of a convergent evolution as diglett shape is clearly optimal
flamewave7: he's a garden eel, he's just a cute Boi who just looks like diglet
matthaus_c: the Amogus -> Diglett -> Wiglett pipeline
TehAmelie: hee remember Weebls thing "space is fun" with singing worms on an asteroid?
JessKay: it's not an evolution, mechanically speaking - just a different pokémon with a shared ancestor
AtomicAlchemical: did anyone else lose sound?
JessKay: for some reason
BrindleBoar: Kirblett
matthaus_c: yeah Alolan Diglett has the Pele hair
KinoGami: the best thing is diglets are a "mole pokemon"
GapFiller: Alolan Dugtrio yeh
mowdownjoe: Right. Surfer Dugtrip.
Laserbeaks_Fury: And Dugtrio has 3 hairstyles
KinoGami: and wigletts are clearly not moles
kynelwynn: It's the Dugtrio
SaxPython: PogChamp
flamewave7: Allan dugtrio is Hanson
kynelwynn: diglet just has a few sprigs of hair
HorusFive: mattlrConfus
TehAmelie: lrrFRUMP_TK
brat_the_wurst: its the wario version of diglet
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is this still the one with Sprigatito
TehAmelie: hm, emote didn't show up on my end
They_Are_Alyx: @laserbeaks_fury Yes
HorusFive: How dare heather imply that we won't know everything before the game calls out!
HorusFive: *comes
niccus: die 905 deaths
PMAvers: And then the weed cat.
TemporallyAwry: JoJo Duck is LuvCool
GapFiller: Weed Cat
Brozard: LOVE Weed Cat
SaxPython: CurseLit PogChamp
GhostValv: spicy gator :)
AveryCorvus: Weedcat a hundred years
misteline: I will die for Fuecoco the pepper dino!
SK__Ren: I just want a new variant of Mareep/Flaafy/Ampharos
kynelwynn: Sprigatito!
KinoGami: i'm not playing this pokemon but if i did i would 100% choose the duck and name it subaru
Brozard: aww
Lazarus2511: I wait for the starter final evolution to make my choice
Invitare: oh no, it's the best one in Gen 2
mowdownjoe: But Spicy Pepper Boi!
flamewave7: gen 2 grass was hard mode
misteline: It very much depends on the Gen which one is hardest.
GhostValv: I'm holding out for fire/dragon or fire ghost (like a ghost pepper :) )
misteline: I think I'll name my pepper dino after Ben. They have similar vibes.
BrindleBoar: It's a Battle Baronetcy
GapFiller: something something duck test
Sogheim: lrrPAUL Beard Time? lrrPAUL
kynelwynn: A dystopia?
saucemaster5000: I'd windmill slam a ghost pepper pokemon, that's such a good idea!
GapFiller: if it looks like a Battle Royale and it plays like a Battle Royale ect ect then its prob a Battle Royale
SaxPython: excellent puns in running man
kynelwynn: The story is way different than the film, but the film is so over the top
PMAvers: Did somebody say Red Faction
richard_ermen: So...Red Faction style?
TheMerricat: lots of flashing....
angryoptimist: There were definitely puns in there, but for some reason I can only remember the Mr. Freeze puns in Batman Forever(?) now.
KinoGami: is this DICE engine?
richard_ermen: So we've....rediscovered technology from 2001?
Brozard: Neat!
angryoptimist: Wait, Red Faction: Guerrila death match?
EvilBadman: Bad Comapny 2 is back baybee
KinoGami: bad company 2 was so good
matthaus_c: that must be hell on the CPU
BrindleBoar: if this were actual gameplay it could be neat LUL
angryoptimist: If it's as thorough as RF:G, then that's pretty cool?
TheMerricat: what was that game's name again chat?
TheMerricat: nmv
TheMerricat: nvm even
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh yeah that gun was awesome
angryoptimist: "The Finals" is a pretty forgettable name; I forgot it until it was re-mentioned, too.
SaxPython: Oliver Tyndall Energy
Sogheim: Heather playing the role of "The Experienced Contractor"
GapFiller: does it look like a duck and move like a duck and quack like a duck
matthaus_c: people have been trying to recreate the Deus Ex level of freedom of interaction for sooo long
GapFiller: and take a liberal approach to family planning like a duck
Sogheim: @matthaus_c let us throw fridges out windows!
AveryCorvus: Red Faction Guerilla energy
matthaus_c: throw fridges out of windows into a giant stack of fridges leading to the rooftop of the building where the main antagonist is :p
Brozard: I'm thinking of that voxel game Alex played where he just knocked out two columns in water and it capsized a building
PMAvers: And most of those games involve you playing as a cat
angryoptimist: Catlateral Damage.
saucemaster5000: you could do it at Heather's house, gotit
matthaus_c: I see now why Jacob assigned you a Morningstar
Laserbeaks_Fury: wait, square nix dropped a new rpg out of nowhere?
CanvasWolfDoll: will we get to a point where people will be clamoring for wow classic classic?
eshplode: I wonder when they're going to do WoW Classic for Dragonflight
kynelwynn: Wrath had a HUGE gap between Raid releases, people were rather upset it took so long to get ICC
LordZarano: @Brozard Teardown
matthaus_c: amazing
angryoptimist: Bugs never getting fixed! lrrHORN
Brozard: @Brozard THANK you! That was bugging me
Sogheim: does that mean that the pre cataclysm character bug still exists but you can plan for it?
matthaus_c: at this point, that's a feature
GapFiller: when does a bug become a feature tho really
TehAmelie: how nostalgic, Lich King was the only part where i got up to max level. but without exploits
TemporallyAwry: So to keep up the authentic experience, they banned this guy too right Kappa
matthaus_c: ^ benginLul
angryoptimist: sergeModLove ironmouseBANHAMMER sergeModLove ironmouseBANHAMMER
matthaus_c: they're jumping on a sword to avoid a hammer
angryoptimist: But it'd be hilarious if he gets banned, though.
angryoptimist: That kinda makes it worth it, right?
TheMerricat: I am hopeful for this series but I feel like it has zero chance of not being flamed to hell by assholes on the internet
matthaus_c: for a moment I thought you'd say Pedro Pascal as Ellie and I was pumped
angryoptimist: Everything seems to be flamed to hell by assholes on the Internet now.
dtgill: Hmm, would have been nice to see some orange shirts on stream today. Ah well
TheMerricat: why orange shirts?
TehAmelie: it has zombies so it'll probably get 10 seasons no matter how vocally people hate it
I_Am_Clockwork: Maybe it’s like putting on a Shakespeare play
TehAmelie: works for me, cause i wanted to play the game except the part of playing it didn't work for me at all
Lysander_salamander: hello every one!
I_Am_Clockwork: Like how an individual acting troupe would put on a production
They_Are_Alyx: @themerricat National Day of Truth and Reconciliation aka Orange Shirt Day
Lysander_salamander: why are folks adding in Today's Day of the Day?
TheMerricat: thanks chat
Juliamon: Lysander_salamander It's a particularly noteworthy one
PMAvers: "And then they found the cure to the zombie fungus thing."
Lysander_salamander: oh ok
They_Are_Alyx: Just realized that Paul and I are wearing the same shirt today!
ThorSokar: A bit of a downer is an understatement
Laserbeaks_Fury: Wouldn't be crazy if all the characters survive ot the end of ff7remake
Lysander_salamander: I mean, it is the last day of september, almost time for halloween.
dtgill: Just something that might be nice to think about for next year, as a Canadian channel
TheMerricat: The first last of us had a bittersweet ending, the second ended... dark. sad and dark
DoodlestheGreat: "And then they had sex."
TehAmelie: Shaun of the Dead ends happily for everyone except the zombies
flamewave7: Shawn of the dead?
Lysander_salamander: That one zombie romance movie
Juliamon: Though admittedly outside of Beej I'm not sure how many of the crew have orange shirts
I_Am_Clockwork: I was just typing Shaun of the Dead
Lysander_salamander: Warm Bodies
aiamethyst: @Lysander_salamander Warm Bodies
angryoptimist: We're helping!
LordZarano: People post "Game Movies" on Youtube which are just all the cutscenes. I remember the Death Stranding one was 11 hours long
TheMerricat: That Romeo and Juliet zombie rom-com ended happy.
Banana_Swonk: world war z had an optimistic ending iirc
Lazarus2511: Warm Bodies?
AtomicAlchemical: Zombieland?
fonkoncle: my internet's been down was there a checkpoint this week?
EvilBadman: nope
Juliamon: fonkoncle Nope
fonkoncle: ok.
TheMerricat: @fonkoncle They had to cut it for PPR prep
dtgill: @juliamon this is true
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is that the game Ian was playing or is that a different game
Lysander_salamander: Someday I should watch the rest of Zombieland Saga.
GapFiller: oooh jazz /beej
angryoptimist: @fonkoncle Non-sequitur: I like to pronounce "PPR" as "pupper".
matthaus_c: or as "peeper"
They_Are_Alyx: @laserbeaks_fury Ian played BPM: Bullets Per Minute, which is similar
angryoptimist: @matthaus_c Also good.
EvilBadman: the only real tie in for the music, IIRC, is the BPM. There's not like musical charts you're trying to match
GapFiller: G: cz I was thinking of learning the saxophone! is never not a great one liner
TehAmelie: They are Billions has now reached over a trillion zombies killed. but i believe you can kill all the zombies on one map for a happy ending in a vacuum
TheMerricat: I'm rather surprised there seem to be several games of this type.
Lysander_salamander: everyone can just visit their twitter
matthaus_c: ripping and tearing to some nice Miles Davis albums
angryoptimist: I mean, Audiosurf But Doom is pretty cool.
Laserbeaks_Fury: throw some E1M1 in there
Lysander_salamander: Pretend you're Isobel
GapFiller: matthaus_c we talkin the 50s cool stuff or the 70s electric stuff which is pretty much metal here Kappa
angryoptimist: I'm sure someone's had Hatsune Miku killing demons in hell. Hatsune Miku wears many hats.
matthaus_c: @GapFiller yes!
Lysander_salamander: Kind of like a Touhou
Laserbeaks_Fury: Checkmate
Wolfstrike_NL: This doesn't look like goku or superman
bytecaster: That sure is a take
Lazarus2511: waow
matthaus_c: alright
matthaus_c: that's a cute subtweet
Lysander_salamander: Dang I hate it when folks chant "dead game" in various posts
TheMerricat: I'll give Epic props for giving a finger to folk.
eshplode: People are saying Fortnite is dead now? That seems like saying Disney is dead
Plasterboard: They shoulda just made a PubG skin :P
TehAmelie: it feels a bit like City of Heroes' Going Rogue expansion, but more cartoony
Laserbeaks_Fury: If all you want from Fortnite is to play shooty games
angryoptimist: @Lysander_salamander It's right up there with single-word "cringe" response posts.
bytecaster: You can't always just subtweet every copyright holder in existence, sometimes you gotta subtweet your audience as well.
KinoGami: spider-gwen is in it now
NeroTheArsonist: he's in fall guys
EvilBadman: Not in Fortnite, but Fall Guys
Izandai: I do wish Fortnight was dead.
Banana_Swonk: shadow has guns, he could be
SaxPython: FBtouchdown She said the catchphrase FBtouchdown
matthaus_c: the Sonic Boom designs are basically Fortnite-ready
bytecaster: Gotta wait for the Fortguy or Fallnite crossover.
SaxPython: *They
saucemaster5000: the scariest moment is when you hear the announcement that YOU are in Fortnite
angryoptimist: Goku's in Fortnite, right?
KinoGami: yes
KinoGami: goku, vegeta, berus, and bulma
angryoptimist: Goku can shoot Spiderman in the face with a gun.
matthaus_c: you can also get the top of the Dr. Eggman outfit and pair it with an undies outfit
Lazarus2511: Mistborn characters are in Fortnite for some reason, don't know how that one happened
KinoGami: also john cena
bytecaster: @KinoGami The four most powerful beings in their universe
TehAmelie: Fall Guys got Pusheen, checkmate Fortnite lrrrBEEJ
Banana_Swonk: its aggressively blue
angryoptimist: @Lazarus2511 That's a headscratcher.
SpoonfullOfSugar: I thought Sonic subsisted on a diet of pure chilidogs
saucemaster5000: does he make the curry out of his own hair?
matthaus_c: !card defense grid
LRRbot: Defense Grid [2] | Artifact | Each spell costs {3} more to cast except during its controller's turn.
Laserbeaks_Fury: isn't that Dva's ability
matthaus_c: !card damping matrix
LRRbot: Damping Matrix [3] | Artifact | Activated abilities of artifacts and creatures can't be activated unless they're mana abilities.
EvilBadman: It's D.Va's Skill that stops projectiles
They_Are_Alyx: @lazarus2511 I assume Epic backed a dumptruck full of cash up to Brandon Sanderson's house
TheMerricat: "This will include a system called “SMS Protect” which “brings meaningful change when it comes to disruptive play. This additional layer of security is an industry-proven solution in combating both cheating and disruptive behavior, further protecting your Overwatch 2 experience from bad actors”. The security of your account is important, and SMS Protect helps verify ownership of your account in the unforeseen event of an account compromise. Similarly, if a disruptive player has been suspended
angryoptimist: Oh, cool, NOT a kernel rootkit!
bytecaster: For now, not a virus
TheMerricat: lps verify ownership of your account in the unforeseen event of an account compromise. Similarly, if a disruptive player has been suspended or banned, SMS Protect makes it more difficult for them to return to the game”
SaxPython: NotLikeThis
bytecaster: If you are toxic in the game, it's gonna send an SMS to your mom
Lysander_salamander: ok sure
EvilBadman: Don't you have phones?
angryoptimist: Of course, SMS has no authentication issues and has NEVER been spoofed. Kappa x 9000
Lazarus2511: @bytecaster texting their mom might actually work XD
AveryCorvus: Paul went a little Werner Herzog there for a sec.
matthaus_c: "Don't y'all have cellphones" - Blizzard
PMAvers: Right, since you had to buy a boxed copy of the game to play OW1.
Lysander_salamander: I guess it's so they can limit the amount of accounts a person can be banned from?
Lysander_salamander: aha
TheMerricat: @EvilBadman BAD! BAD! jlrrNo
bytecaster: @matthaus_c Or at least like an SMS gateway or something
KinoGami: lets be honest if you're playing overwatch you probably have your own phone
Lysander_salamander: I think they got rid of loot boxes, so it's now teen?
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun "Its cartoonish and fun, and its supposed to be, but we wanted to expand on the characters, give them more depth." The Campaign features more mature themes, the violence, content and language geared more towards an M rated audience. As such, it is rated M by the ESRB, unlike Overwatch which is rated T."
Lysander_salamander: otherwise it would have to be mature for gambling
CanvasWolfDoll: wasn't going to get ow2, not i'm really not getting ow2! stay away from my phone number, companies!
Lysander_salamander: huh
BakaNerd subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 21 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, BakaNerd! (Today's storm count: 17)
SK__Ren: Sorry, no prepaid? Thats gonna bite them in the butt
Aygar subscribed at Tier 2. They've subscribed for 34 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Aygar! (Today's storm count: 18)
Mai_Andra: Hope your mom lets you and your brothers each have cell phones so you don't have to share a single account.
CanvasWolfDoll: usually they amend 'online interactions not rated' to handwave it
Laserbeaks_Fury: There's straight up assassinations in OW, what are thy adding that needs an M?
TehAmelie: no see Blizzard's goin Edgy and Mature https://i.imgur.com/L0lNoVl.png
bytecaster: @CanvasWolfDoll We tried, but all our rating people got too depressed and couldn't fill out the form afterwards
TheMerricat: You say that Heather but....
saucemaster5000: you should not say anything on the internet ever
PMAvers: Especially the "V" word.
angryoptimist: *FTUE*
Lysander_salamander: They do love their acronyms
angryoptimist: It's a great onomatopoeia.
Lazarus2511: ftuey!
TehAmelie: oh no, F2 is already taken by Fallout 2
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is the related to Füt?
Manae: to be fair, defense matrix is a StarCraft term
ThorSokar: yes, panicBasket every time
Laserbeaks_Fury: Oh Blizzard has *never* launched a game seamlessly
bytecaster: To quote a previous part of the stream: "They always say things, and people are always leaving" in regard to AKB
Lysander_salamander: wait hang on, did they backtrack on the claim that overwatch and overwatch 2 owners can play together?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Nope, but all the OW players will have to use OW2 Kappa
Lysander_salamander: aha
Lysander_salamander: a weasel loophole to squirm through
bytecaster: Instead of "Best of Game" one of the players is gonna get autobanned at the end of each game, to send a message
They_Are_Alyx: Hmmmm
ThorSokar: Seconds till that gets exploited: 23
eshplode: Weird. I tend to endorse people on the other team more than my own. Usually, I endorse anyone who ggs at the end
Lysander_salamander: did they backtrack on their claim that they'll carry over the unlockables from Overwatch 1 over to to Overwatch 2?
angryoptimist: I look forward to seeing how people will figure out how to use their system to make people not be toxic to somehow be even more toxic.
Lazarus2511: cue the sarcastic "well played" things
TehAmelie: i could see a place for a game where the loser gets their account deleted. probably a battle royale kind of thing
EvilBadman: @TehAmelie Banned, but you can pay $10 to come back Kappa
angryoptimist: @TehAmelie I wouldn't play it--no way in hell would I play it--but I'd watch it be streamed a couple times.
TehAmelie: of course
bytecaster: @TehAmelie You just partner with a cell phone company, as everybody needs a new number after the ban.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Honestly, taking out all the numbers feedback is going to take the punch out of bad interasctions
angryoptimist: @TehAmelie Get commission on signups due to bans. I N F I N I T E M O N E Y
angryoptimist: @Laserbeaks_Fury It might help, but I suspect it'll be a hanafuda sort of situation--they'll find a way.
angryoptimist: It's worth a try, though.
angryoptimist: I'll be interested to see where there approach succeeds, if it does.
angryoptimist: *their
angryoptimist: E3 still exists?
Lazarus2511: hanafuda situation? isn't that a type of playing cards?
Lord_Hosk: E3 physical with no vendors
GapFiller: didnt they try that w/ E3 2022
BusTed: C2E2
PMAvers: So probably a vastly less chance of doxxing their attendees?
EvilBadman: Lotta comicons too, Emerald City, Rose City, NEw York
angryoptimist: @Lazarus2511 Yeah, a type of cards intended to make gambling impractical/impossible. You play a gambling game with them!
FITorion: meeting E3 in person? what does E3 look like?
Lazarus2511: @angryoptimist ah XD
Lord_Hosk: and now E3 is a no one thing HEYYY OHHH
saucemaster5000: E 1 1/2
FITorion: test test did prime sub take effect
FITorion: yes it did
