ArtemisHuntress: I think that's how I bought Mass Effect 3
SocraticMethod: Ah, the Valve definition of "Physical Release"
TemporallyAwry: At that point just sell a poster jlrrFacepalm
SquidVorb: The game itself is not physical
saiarcot895: it's a physical release of a download code
Plasterboard: I absolutely ABHOR physical purchases that contain nothing but a piece of paper with a download code. It is WRONG
SquidVorb: Nice beard, Paul
ArtemisHuntress: I remember biking to the mall at midnight to pick up the Mass Effect 3 box on release, which then just gave us a download code.
ArtemisHuntress: it was sleeting during that bike ride
GapFiller: thats esp odd given how valuable cases can be
GhostValv: @ArtemisHuntress I hope you at least enjoyed the game at release...
AveryCorvus: Paul.
SocraticMethod: Then there are those who buy physical medium, throw away the case and purchase expensive 3rd party display case like steelbook
ArtemisHuntress: @ArtemisHuntress no >:( We bought the physical version because we were on crappy dorm room internet, and then we just had to download it anyway. Didn't get to play it for over a day

GhostValv: D:
googoltudoris: i haven't counted, but i'm pretty sure more than half of the 77 games in my steam to-do list are indie games i wanted to support, even if i never actually get around to them
DeM0nFiRe: Yes but you need 55 moogles
TemporallyAwry: @TheMerricat through a smart-speaker, clearly Kappa
GapFiller: yep it was Links Awakening DX which had the colour dungeon
GapFiller: which iirc was inaccessible on an OG b&w Gameboy
TehAmelie: something a little more in depth than the moogle dating sim in FF7 eh
The_Voices: i need a chocobo breeding/racing game
saucemaster5000: Why is there not a moogle postman game?! now I need that game! damn it!
The_Voices: there is a postmoogle quest line...
GapFiller: nalvThink hmm Moogle Kevin Costner
TehAmelie: i bet you could play as one of those tiny people and get a convincing moogle costume and start a rogue mail service
The_Voices: that breeding is BAD, do not like
Serivus: there was a Playstation Chocobo racing game, but no breeding in there
QZork: chocobo dungeon was kinda cray
KeytarCat: There's a chocobo racing. It's a kart racer with the OG FF jobs
Serivus: you played a chocobo on roller skates
EikoandMog: Chocobo Racing GP was out not too long ago
TheMerricat: Chocobo Racing, known in Japan as Chocobo Racing: Genkai e no Road, is a racing game developed by Square Co. for the PlayStation. The game was released in Japan in March 1999, followed by North America and Europe in August and October, respectively
saucemaster5000: they can only read chocobo though
EikoandMog: But it's a kart racer.
GapFiller: oh this story
GDwarble: Gonna be honest, I do not care for the AI-extrapolated art, much prefer the low-poly ones
GapFiller: same
GapFiller: not big on AI upsacling ect in general
EvilBadman: Thumb on the outside
The_Voices: two thumbs
Reecer6: well, his thumb is roast beef
ArtemisHuntress: two thumbs
Eklinaar: yes the hand is backwards
MrUglama: the thumb is in the other side tho
JessKay: yeah he's got two right hands
AveryCorvus: Thumb should be on the inside
iris_of_ether: Oh my
Reecer6: is that a foot hand
Mai_Andra: These remind me of Mortal Kombat pseudo-realistic graphics.
ArtemisHuntress: these characters all have balloon muscles
TheMerricat: that is certainly a mustache
Reecer6: i hate how good it is at wrinkles
GDwarble: Huh, it kinda erased that face entirely
richard_ermen: Its interesting because it ignores the style of the characters. The old fighting man for example looks very much like an Akira Toriyama Character which is totally lost on the AI
GDwarble: I guess the lack of colour contrast meant it didn't realize it was a face?
TehAmelie: metal face? that's sort of like a helmet
JessKay: @richard_ermen yeah I was gonna say, that just looked like tao pai pai
richard_ermen: Totally

Laserbeaks_Fury: Ashley Johnson
TheMerricat: @fubargames yep they weren't able to record a checkpoint this week due to illness
GDwarble: Oh, a new VA for Bayonetta? That's unexpected, she has a pretty memorable voice
TheMerricat: "“Various overlapping circumstances made it difficult for Hellena Taylor to reprise her role,” they confirmed. “We held auditions to cast the new voice of Bayonetta and offered the role to Jennifer Hale, whom we felt was a good match for the character.”
Juliamon: You never know when it's actually unavailable or when it's "we don't want to pay them"
KV1NN4: Well... Jennifer Hale IS very talented so I will be optimistic
EvilBadman: @Juliamon I don't think you chase Hale on that latter one
SocraticMethod: Not many credited VA roles other than Baynetta
CururuGuasu: This could potentially cost them more in this case
Juliamon: Yeah, admittedly Hale is the bigger name, but also she's a way more recognizable name
SocraticMethod: She makes "barks" IIRC
niccus: she talks plenty in Other M...
EricTheOrange: The first Jennifer hale video game performance I can think of is Naomi is MGS.
Juliamon: anyway, my point was that there could be less-than-genuine reasons for a recasting
DarthRagnar815: Doing efforts has to be at least slightly awkward.
LordZarano: Hale has also starred on... Desert Bus for Hope, iirc
RockPusher: The Long Dark's survival mode is a bit like that
CururuGuasu: Some people are speculating that it may be similar to Keither Sutherland being cast for Metal Gear and it turned out to be a different character
badpandabear: Hardspace Shipbreaker was like that
Lokolos: Random question maybe mods can help with. I got an email from Twitch (the same email I get sign in information and other stuff from) congratulating me on becoming a mod. It doesn't actually tell me which channel I'm a mod for... Is there a way to check that because as far as I can tell, someone accidentally modded me and then took it away.
Sogheim: hey it's Paul and he looks extra floofy today
Sogheim: Heather looks very smart with her pin on her cap, what is the pin?
Coloneljesus: or a pitch/speed slider
SocraticMethod: @CururuGuasu Japanese VA is still the same, so unlikely
TheMerricat: @lokolos I feel like I've heard someone talk about that before and it turned out to be a scam. I'm not sure I remember how it was a scam....
Judge_Seawee: plus, culture, if they have an accent and all you should be hearing them within grunts
Coloneljesus: is kirby a they or an it?
LordZarano: Doomguy has a lot of personality without a word
Lokolos: @TheMerricat Good to know.
lamedad2: what are you talking about
Juliamon: Lokolos Yeah that sounds like a scam to me
flamewave7: kirby is more of a yes
Sogheim: This will probably get auto blocked, but if you go to it lists what channels you are modded for
TheMerricat: @lokolos quick Google search shows a bunch of Reddit results of people talking about this happening in the past few months but I didn't see any actual this is a scam information
GapFiller: there was a whole episode based around it

lirazel64: "People are no damn good." -- Lucy van Peltz.
KV1NN4: Like i get it but dang there was several years where I couldn't afford anything BUT a prepaid phone
SocraticMethod: @TheMerricat Maybe offline like dedicated/unofficial? Still won't happen because Blizz is gonna Blizz
PMAvers: I'm waiting for them to just sell a token you can spend like $20 or $30 on to buypass it.
Sogheim: "buypass" good word

CodeIndigo: which sounds like an awful reboot of Animal Crossing New Horizons but eh
LordZarano: Oh like holepunch but bigger?
TheOtherTrevor: I love the stupid interactions people are having about the dynamic island being copied on Android almost right away. People claim both that it must be such a great feature if Android wants to copy it. And at the same time are claiming it isn't actually that special since it can be copied.
CodeIndigo: Android v ios is a ridiculous thing to get upset over. Competition makes both phones better.
GapFiller: but can this stuff run on an OG burner phone Kappa thats the real big question here
CodeIndigo: of course i'm old enough to remember the near blood feud levels of hatred involved in nintendo vs sega so

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, megaflycraft! (Today's storm count: 19)
LordZarano: Like Smash Bros trophys, but for spending money
Nydestroyer: meanwhile heres me with my insane number of steam pointless points LUL
The_Color_Twelve: Ah yes the thing that makes twitter awful
Eklinaar: I mean have you seen Beej's twitter
GapFiller: something something Chris Pratt
KV1NN4: it was called a teaser trailer for some reason
GapFiller: apparently the trailer had other talking points
SocraticMethod: Mario Movie starring Jack Black as King Bowser and Chris Pratt as Chris Pratt
saucemaster5000: Peach knows she could do better
TehAmelie: he's only meant to be a player avatar and all
PMAvers: You will regret your words and deeds.
SK__Ren: Wow, still ribbing Kojima in 2022. Never gets old
fiftymcnasty: I just want Chris Pratt to do his best Captain Lou Albano impression.
Juliamon: The minute you try to defend your choice is the minute you lose
SK__Ren: It sounds like he'll have some kind of new york accent, but he gets 2 very basic lines that aren't even connected so its a horrible showcase
DEATHlikescats: Saw the French dub and was more interesting than English
TehAmelie: i'm neutral about casting famous actors for voice acting, but the real trouble is Chris Pratt being a fully evolved chung
KV1NN4: apparently the Italian trailer is pretty good too... XD
Bionull: Anime talk is so much less embarrassing in another language
LordZarano: @Juliamon Show don't tell.
SocraticMethod: Apparently Jack Black did not need voice modulation to get that low. Must go trough so much gingseng and honey
spethycakes: no, he's not a fungi in this movie
josh___something: Odd
TehAmelie: i guess they based the character design and movements on Jack Black or somethin
Bionull: Only Paul can go lower
EricTheOrange: wait does Jakie chan also play the monkie as well in the chinese version?
LordZarano: Jack Black has a youtube channel and is a surprisingly good youtuber
Coloneljesus: wait for real?
DEATHlikescats: @tehamelie used to be so into Chris Pratt but he’s just not a good dude irl and that makes me sad
TehAmelie: yeah
TheMandrew: Benedict Cumberbatch does a great Smaug, but he can't say the word penguin
SocraticMethod: It's not flat! It's concave
TalpTheScot: mario looks a bit malnourished
GapFiller: people expect Mario to be T H I C C
GapFiller: so when he isnt...
EricTheOrange: I know jaknie Chan playes the monkie in the english version but if he's playing the panda I wonder if he doubled up his roles and played them both.
EikoandMog: I have a book from the wonderful Laura Kate Dale about video game butts.
Coloneljesus: I need Luigi to be THICC
DEATHlikescats: @themandrew pen wings is a cute way of saying penguins
Sethalidos: also remember Heather that Laura Kate Dale did make a book about Mario's butt
Coloneljesus: pengwins
EvilBadman: shine stole
Ukon_Cairns: i mean, that was the plot of mario 64 wasnt it? save the princess and get cake
TehAmelie: for the record, the monkey's name is Monkey
CururuGuasu: It must be one of them Mario Party stars
TemporallyAwry: Luigi has a weird relationship with the undead.
GapFiller: didnt we go over Luigi Mansions place in the timeline just last week
saucemaster5000: I didn't see the blade runner-esque max headroom mushroom kingdom with pink slime everywhere, so clearly this movie is innacurate
Earthenone: maybe the flat butt is a paper mario refernce
DEATHlikescats: Warriors is for the sequel!
Invitare: wasn't Wario a listed VA in the announcement?
DEATHlikescats: *wario
EricTheOrange: Someone did point out that some bumper stickers in the trailer were from Mario Oddesy locations
Ukon_Cairns: that could be a good gag, a photo album or photos on the wall of past video game versions of mario
SocraticMethod: Polterpup
Earthenone: !quote wario
LRRbot: Quote #6676: "Wah! Nintendo is real!" —Wario [2020-01-06]
LearningXP: Best stinger: Sonic asks Mario about the Smash Bros Initiative
TehAmelie: i want Ang Lee to make a movie with Mario, Luigi, Wario and Waluigi where we follow them all at the same time in split screen
DEATHlikescats: Wonder if Donkey Kong will cameo
TehAmelie: really displaying their mirror imageness
SocraticMethod: @DEATHlikescats Seth Rogan has been confirmed for that role
TemporallyAwry: !quote wario
LRRbot: Quote #6676: "Wah! Nintendo is real!" —Wario [2020-01-06]
DEATHlikescats: @socraticmethod I missed that info! Thanks for confirming!
Bionull: Both movies the best part is the villain. What does that tell us?
TemporallyAwry: @Bionull You need a compelling villain to have a hero shine?
saucemaster5000: mildly inoffensive is a much better place for video game movies to be
DeM0nFiRe: Witch her for what?
EvilBadman: whomst
Bionull: @Bionull No Shines in this one. They're doing Stars.
Coloneljesus: Witcher 4: The Sandwich
CharredSpark: the sandwitcher, where geralt retires to work at a subway
Invitare: ah, the Ubisoft strategy
SocraticMethod: Witcher? I 'ardly know 'er! Kappa
Earthenone: make witcher 4? instuctions unclear, made 4 more witcher games
DEATHlikescats: They’re doing a James Cameron Avatar style development
PMAvers: Like, maybe they're like lighter and one-off stories?
Coloneljesus: Gwent 2?
Mai_Andra: somewhat witchier than expected...
Coloneljesus: big woof
CharredSpark: those codenames, woof
mowdownjoe: Heather...
DeM0nFiRe: Sounds like they are named after stars?
BusTed: Ciri-us
OhaiMireiya: very sirius
DEATHlikescats: Love star names
TehAmelie: there's a lot of stars to name projects after, makes sense
CodeIndigo: Yeah, IIRC they're both the same star???
Mai_Andra: I don't think Witcher universe works quite the same as Assassin's Creed?
Coloneljesus: is one of them a Telltale?
Silver_Slip: space witcher
DEATHlikescats: Sci-fi Witcher would be cool
Earthenone: makes sense they would be on the big dog
saucemaster5000: I mean, The witcher 3 was just a really good Telltale game with a mediocre open world game wrapped around it
SocraticMethod: Wait, it's it Canis Major? VY Canis Majoris is a pulsar that's on the edge of the constellation.
Coloneljesus: it's also a wolf
Bionull: On the plus side, the Cyberpunk anime was real good
PMAvers: And apparently they're moving to Unreal Engine instead of their in-house one
saucemaster5000: can't fault them for lack of ambition
Silver_Slip: fix cyberpunk first ffs
DEATHlikescats: Very ambitious but am hoping for polished complete games rather than half finished many games
SocraticMethod: I don't think CP2077 can be fixed without full rebuild, from what I have heard of their engine
DEATHlikescats: @pmavers that’s good news!
EvilBadman: Project C-322 DEBRA
EricTheOrange: next code name N233784
SocraticMethod: Witcher HD 181342
FITorion: just go to the "star registry" ... game code name "Susan Kermanski"
saucemaster5000: I'd porbably code name my next project Veronica. See if capcom gets annoyed
TehAmelie: start with The Sun and work outward
Earthenone: i cant think of a good codename, maybe ill ask the kids next door
DEATHlikescats: @fitorion this is a wonderful idea! Disguising games as stars named after people makes it look like they’re working for someone who is a BIG mess but gets better over time and they’re very exited to get going!
Earthenone: or some sort of roof donkey
EricTheOrange: with long looong diglett
Invitare: Farigiraf isn't physically a palindrome. The name doesn't make sense!
saucemaster5000: girafarig?
iris_of_ether: It's a palindrome

TheThirdTail: Fear a giraffe
EricTheOrange: the dread swine Lechonk
Izandai: @Invitare What? Yes it is.
Joalni: Kinda like a space helmet?
DEATHlikescats: Space giraffe
RockPusher: A giraffe ready for Halloween
RockPusher: dressed as a giraffe
SocraticMethod: Oh gods, the janky walking cycle army
CodeIndigo: Have you ever wanted to turn a giraffe inside out? Now with new Farigiraf, you don't have to!
Earthenone: maybe its a press your luck mechanic
saucemaster5000: Dark Souls "You Died" pops up
SocraticMethod: Like 70's horror movie
Invitare: @Invitare No, the word is, but the pokemon isn't. Girafarig's name is a palindrome because Girafarig itself is one. Two heads, one at both end
Silver_Slip: i thought it was space helmet before i realized it was its tail
TehAmelie: better for them than just candy
TalpTheScot: if a fidough eats a sandwich, is it cannibalism?
TemporallyAwry: Went there lrrSPOOP
Driosenth: what is the "meat" in the sandwich in the pokemon world?
KaleidoscopeMind: souls are nutritious
SocraticMethod: Haven't you heard of Rock Sandwitch Paul? Kappa
CodeIndigo: They can only eat sandwiches crafted by dice roll
EricTheOrange: sandwhiches made from... berries I guess, pokemon eat berries.
Ukon_Cairns: anything can be a sandwich topping
RockPusher: Mmmmm, delicious childrens' souls
TalpTheScot: but there is a bread pokemon now!
OhaiMireiya: I mean there's probably rocks and errant souls hanging around picnic areas
PMAvers: "Oh hey we have a bunch of space on the cartridge left... let's stick it in!"

SK__Ren: My first Pokemon game was Silver. Gen 2 is very solid
RockPusher: foxmarEG
saucemaster5000: they kill a chansey when you aren't looking
Invitare: Professor Elm's whole deal is that he's trying to find out how eggs happen
SocraticMethod: Pokemon Breeders is such a confused accupation
SocraticMethod: occupation*
iris_of_ether: foxmarEG
Bionull: This picnic is way more involved than I thought
Earthenone: looks like sandwichs are timed
Invitare: Lechonk
TheAinMAP: foxmarEG
josh___something: lechonk
Earthenone: tepig?
LearningXP: Honey roasted Lechonk
CodeIndigo: "The eggs come in picnic baskets now!" "THAT ONLY RAISES MORE QUESTIONS"
Bionull: They're gonna sell those eevee toothpicks
Silver_Slip: thats the explanation they give the 10 year old child recieving the egg
EricTheOrange: meat comes from the meat bush obviously
DEATHlikescats: It’s a homogenized meat substitute!
josh___something: look, lechon is LITERALLY food... I don't know what to tell you :p
Invitare: the worst part is you can probably feed Lechonk a ham sandwich
saucemaster5000: that kid had a weird wave
PMAvers: Table in a pokeball
TehAmelie: it's better to have these questions than to get answers like what they did in BoJack Horseman
TalpTheScot: made of fidoughs
Bionull: What... what is going on with that Chansey?
laundreydhull: balloon-hat Chansey?
LearningXP: Sentient ice cream Pokemon
Invitare: sentient pokemon cream cakes...
Driosenth: mana from the devs
LordZarano: Where did that lettuce come from!?
Doc_Layzah: oh no... bad timing
Ukon_Cairns: yeah, we had sausage curry before, but ppl know not to ask where the sausage come from
iris_of_ether: Fid-oh-no!
Arikell: so where are the tomato and lettuce pokemon?
Bionull: I don't know if she's making things up or not
Angreed66: We're acting like all the organisms we humans eat aren't living things too.
RockPusher: It's best not to think about where the food comes from in the Pokemon universe
Doc_Layzah: and now we have bread!
animaniacdot: "my kid asked me if chicken the animal was spelled the same as chicken the food. who's gonna tell him?"
CodeIndigo: Pokemon are Grey Goo, they take the form of food to get humans to ingest them so they can convert the humans into more pokemon goo
DEATHlikescats: The implications…
GhostValv: there is no ethical consumption (of sandwiches) in pokemon
iris_of_ether: @niccus Perfect
mowdownjoe: There was curry in the last game.
mowdownjoe: Let that Fidough rise.
TehAmelie: let the meat mature
SocraticMethod: I wonder you can lop off part of Fidough to and use it as dough root
RockPusher: "We have discovered a dough Pokemon. In other news, we have also invented: The Sandwich!" fugiWow
PMAvers: Pulled Slowpoke
Snowcookies: ty for stream
Coloneljesus: ty
saucemaster5000: I like girafapanini
SocraticMethod: "Ethically sourced bread"
ShaneLeeAtk: Now I want a club sandwich

pn55: Is it not ex-pokemon artist James Turner instead? lrrBEEJ
TemporallyAwry: Crossing the LongGame ;p
inaudibledaisy: seamless coop hype!
josh___something: Famous LoadingReadyRun broadcaster james turner?
PMAvers: I'm worried that DandyGeek is going to have rigged up the Miyazaki Lever in IRL.
PMAvers: If they're doing too good, yank it and something random will happen
