Juliamon: videogame news: BLASEBALL'S BACK BABY
TheMerricat: note to self, before asking chat if there is any audio, always check to see if the sound settings are to the computer speaker or headphones. :D
beowuuf: :D
Lazarus2511: woot blaseball
Blythus: @TheMerricat The exact same thing happened to me too!! Apparently this new steelseries app messed with my audio settings
red_shoes_jeff: lrrARROWS lrrARROWS lrrARROWS lrrARROWS lrrARROWS
Blythus: Also, BGC is god-tier
Blythus: Just saying
thegreatwyrdling: @Blythus You arenn't too bad yourself.
DeM0nFiRe: lrrSIG
SuitablyEpic: so does this mean there was no checkpoint?
QuietJay: today!
gralamin: Does ORC and OGL count as news for here?
beowuuf: no trailer, nope
ButButTheJesus: beej is popular
GapFiller: good evening lrrPAUL P lrrHEATHER H lrrBEEEJ B lrrSHINE lrrSHINE lrrSHINE
Blythus: @thegreatwyrdling Aww thank you! I just got covid today for the first time since the pandini started, so I needed something to lift my spirits. <3
GapFiller: The Tyranny of Assembly!
TacitusVigil: The Tyranny of Beej
ButButTheJesus: give chat microphone
thegreatwyrdling: @Blythus <3
TheAinMAP: Hello lrrBEEEJ lrrPAUL lrrHEATHER
GapFiller: nalvThink Heather IS kinda tyrannical Kappa
TwitchTVsFrank: beej is popular and it was his demand
RockPusher: They did
GapFiller: and it was infighting too!
GapFiller: the other side were all in agreement the whole time
wntrwarlok: What about an amibo weebo gazeebo?
Angreed66: There is a very slim possibility there will never be another checkpoint.
GapFiller: there is a v slim possiblity the Moon hits the Earth tmorrow
Invitare: Dave's Amiibo Gazeebo
GapFiller: possiblity covers a lot of ground
PMAvers: rub rub rub
TheMerricat: a little hydrogen peroxide will buff that out...
RockPusher: Cast them into the ultrasonic cleaner!
beowuuf: let the record reflect beej was not the one to send us off the rails already

DeM0nFiRe: Those minigames were such a weird inclusion for a Fire Emblem game
ButButTheJesus is still confused
RockPusher: Being a ring is independent of being sized for a finger
gilliam414: still not the weirdest relationship minigame they put in a FE game
GapFiller: cant sleep Clown Beej will eat me cant sleep Clown Beej will eat me#
mowdownjoe: It's just going to be bikini fanservice for all the female characters, isn't it?
DiscordianTokkan: "Would you love me if I was dressed as a Worm?" "Yes, have this costume" "dangit"
ButButTheJesus: Hi Beej!
GapFiller: nalvLUL got there
SocraticMethod: Wasn't that retracted?
Decaped: No, just that it was only tested on not-new hardware
SocraticMethod: The website that claimed standing your PS5 vertically damages the console has retracted its statement, saying it made a “critical misunderstanding”
EikoandMog: It's no Red Ring of Death
SocraticMethod: 11th, so 2 days ago
RockPusher: "repaired"
SocraticMethod: Ah, the reflow RROD "Fix"
GapFiller: my takeaway here is that I now really want a Torx T8 screwdriver
EikoandMog: Inorganic chemistry is fun!
DiscordianTokkan: Mmmm, chip mayo
DiscordianTokkan: Cooling Emulsion
ButButTheJesus: no bubbles!
SocraticMethod: Galinstan (R) is a brand name for a alloy composed of gallium, indium, and tin which melts at −19 °C (−2 °F) and is thus liquid at room temperature. From
Angreed66: Only certain things are better frothy
ButButTheJesus: I think its fine, kinda cool. I wish the yellow/white lights on it could be dimmed.
ThorSokar: A company existed making them, Playstation sued them out of business, then released their own
Earthenone: !store
LRRbot: LoadingReadyRun has a store! You can buy Shirt, or Sleeve, or Playmat, or Pin, or Other! Check out for the full catalog.
ButButTheJesus: like on the Xbox you can dim or turn off the light
Lazarus2511: jungle green?
Tiber727: Someone photoshopped the PS5 on Seto Kaiba's shirt, and now every time I see a PS5 I remember that.

GapFiller: nalvThink how many of Pauls 5 PS5s are in his living room?
GapFiller: (presumably this was covered in the sketch but its been a while and cant remember)
EikoandMog: @Tiber727 Same, lol.
Nydestroyer: Idk I am particular to the form factor of the ps2
DiscordianTokkan: More consoles need Transparent Plastic again
Decaped: I need a PS5 with a DVDtray to fit my home stereo aesthetic.
ContingentCat: we need more translucent plastic electronics
Angreed66: Consoles don't need to be noticed so accenting is counterproductive
GapFiller: presumably theres a whole lotta lit on discreet aesthetics re consumer goods
Juliamon: Wii on stand: wireless router
TheOtherTrevor: I think I always had my Wii on a stand
Laserbeaks_Fury: I miss the flatness of the PS4
kusinohki: "this end up"
Juliamon: I couldn't keep my Wii in its stand because it was a refurb that had a kinda wonky laser and GCN games would often error mid-game
ButButTheJesus: My PS5 is vertical and I have put in a disc wrong multiple times
Laserbeaks_Fury: You can't even really put the controller on top of it
Nydestroyer: Know from a video example?
Invitare: and Paul knows all about stacking PS5s
Laserbeaks_Fury: It slides off
Nydestroyer: Paul
SocraticMethod: Passive cooling means stacking can't be done anymore
CommanderPulsar: My cat stacks herself on my PS5, but it does not stack well on her.
Amentur: Still going on
ThorSokar: still going
Juliamon: It's Sunday to Saturday
RockPusher: Just make a rack-mount version of each of the consoles
Juliamon: A set week's worth
TheMerricat: @RockPusher Please?
SquidVorb: yeah basically
RockPusher: Were they freshly buttered?
kusinohki: I support the rack mount, but let's get weird... some sort of hanging mount attached to the ceiling
ButButTheJesus: is it the cat though or a different jorts
Invitare: but... go left...
kusinohki: did he do it again without turning right?
Coloneljesus: what if mario touches grass IN the cutscene?
kusinohki: oh gawd.... speedrun "time to crate"
GapFiller: for after CP+ is over the actual vid of him beating the Deku Tree w/o turning left
Decaped: I loved that they removed that sunshine cutscene from the most popular categories.
TheMerricat: So no telling Mario to touch grass?
Laserbeaks_Fury: reach out and Touch Grass
kusinohki: does seaweed count as grass in the water levels??
ButButTheJesus: ooh neat
Coloneljesus: they should do that for windows too
RockPusher: gabyLul
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
ContingentCat: katesLol
BusTed: tqsSmug
beowuuf: to pick a time at random :p
ThorSokar: the fact that "shutdown" doesn't mean OFF grinds my gears

Earthenone: one xbox one was a much cheaper bit to film :P
princess_intell: did heather make beej disappear again?
princess_intell: i highly doubt microsoft gives a flying bus as long as nothing breaks
SquidVorb: There's a computer in everything now paul
princess_intell: my dad a little tech-geek dance the first time he had to update the software on our echo-enabled lightbulbs
CaptainSpam: There was a computer inside you all along!
EvilBadman: the motors in the Xbox controllers are WILD. I turn them off when on console.
Juliamon: yeah, I can hear my sister's controller vibrating off from her room
Earthenone: i remember that
EvilBadman: @Juliamon :|
Juliamon: chat, don't be weird about that
Invitare: it's partying with Metroid Pinball
princess_intell: i love the rumble on xbox one controllers. i feel "blind" when i try to play monster hunter without that feedback.
Daggerpeak: Pokemon pinball the way you describe is animal abuse paul
princess_intell: isn't pokemon already animal abuse
11epicnoob: Hey Paul!
GapFiller: oooh Tarbucks
BusTed: tea squad
TemporallyAwry: sergeSipp ... decaf is fine too
Angreed66: What pokemon games aren't animal abuse is the real qustion
princess_intell: i just take caffeine pills
11epicnoob: I prefer Caramel flavored coffee. Also, Hi Beej
princess_intell: a wild beej appears
GapFiller: eurgh
TemporallyAwry: "herbs" - yup.
princess_intell: here's an idea: partner with a company that already knows how to make tea
GapFiller: oh it also comes w/ an ink ribbon
TheMerricat: Chat, I'm a dumb. I feel like I've seen a logo based on a version of that & on Paul's cup. Anyone know what company I'm trying to remember?
GapFiller: the ink ribbon is neat at least
princess_intell: 149.99
DiscordianTokkan: How much is that in Norwegian Kroner?
ButButTheJesus: I do like the look
princess_intell: i'm shocked we don't already have a twitch bot who can do currency conversions
FlushmasterCyclonis: That sounds gross
SquidVorb: That's harsh :(
ThorSokar: composFive Heather
DiscordianTokkan: Yes Heather Yesssss
princess_intell: yeah cucumbers are gross
beowuuf: cucumber and picles, both bad :p
GapFiller: princess_intell somebody can prob make a pretty penny ginning that up
Orannis0: I've never heard anyone have that strong of an opinion about cucumbers
princess_intell: so is lavendar
ogundiety: That was a hell of take to tune in on (and I agree with Paul, actually)
Juliamon: Watermelon is technically a cucumber
maxthefourth: it's just water disguised as food
DiscordianTokkan: I'm no kappa
Tiber727: Pickles are a sin on mankind, but tatziki is great.
princess_intell: pickles are gross
SpacePotato01: does that mean cucumbers are watermelons?
ContingentCat: I like mini cucumbers and pickles
Coloneljesus: watermelons are pumpkins, not cucumbers
FlushmasterCyclonis: @princess_intell It should only convert other currencies to Norwegian kroner. And not the other way around; it only gives answers in kroner
Laserbeaks_Fury: Gets a big Rebecca Chambers Thumbs Up
Lord_Hosk: honeydew
princess_intell: pumpkins are cucumbers?
maxthefourth: aren't they all berries
princess_intell: all cucumbers are berries
AndrewHawnt: I'm remarkably tipsy on red wine. I love you all dearly, you lovely, talented, joyful creatures.
maxthefourth: pumpkins are berries iirc
Juliamon: I don't understand why everything in America is so anti-guarana
GapFiller: maybe the taxons can be figured out if yr map em onto a qube

Juliamon: guarana is good!!
princess_intell: please, i take caffeine in its pure powder form.... within a capsule sold to me from Amazon
virre_: Oh right a Swedish state run pension fund did sue about that, has that part been reported
Juliamon: Americans are depriving themselves of guarana sodas which are the only good fruit soda
FlushmasterCyclonis: @princess_intell I prefer snorting ground coffee
ButButTheJesus: @princess_intell same, but from ebay
maxthefourth: @juliamon I found a drink in Germany that's just water and guarana without any sugar, so I can cut out the sugar
TheMerricat: @Juliamon Aftermath of it being included in every energy drink sold in every gas station and people still remembering the diet (a.k.a. speed) pills issue a couple of decades back. If it isn't something grandpappy put in his pipe, I aint!
princess_intell: so is the deal actually happening or did the FTC block it

princess_intell: or is everything pending because legal stuff takes 1000 years
princess_intell: oh, thanks paul
virre_: Swedish lawsuit: "A Swedish state-run pension fund sued Activision Blizzard Inc. and Microsoft Corp., claiming their planned $69 billion merger was rigged to exploit the beleaguered gaming giant’s sexual harassment crisis and protect its CEO."
TheMerricat: it's not even a 'real' court case, it's an internal court.
princess_intell: why is a swedish pension department
princess_intell: trying to block the deal
princess_intell: never mind, will google later
virre_: Because they had invested in Activison Blizzard
princess_intell: ahhhhhh thank you
mitomanox: Paul sporting some SERIOUS winter beard today. lrrSHINE lrrPAUL
TheMerricat: @princess_intell So the thing that a lot of people forget is that pensions are generally backed by huge stock portfolios. And if something happens to one of the stocks that portfolio is based on, you'll see the managers of the pension get _really_ sue happy.
princess_intell: a part of me actually does want the deal to go through, just to see what happens
GapFiller: phunny that
TheMerricat: @princess_intell A lot of me really wants the deal to go through because ABK is a horrible company at the top and even Microsoft is a better choice.
virre_: Its also the Pension Fund Swedes gets when they don't select anyone else so there is a lot of Swedish pension funds in there
ThorSokar: well, COD is 3 studios on rotation, unless they changed that recently
EvilBadman: Joke's on you activision doesn't make more than one game
kynelwynn: According to the Spyro team, other teams were dismantled to focus on Call of Duty
SpacePotato01: give him an actual golden parachute
Tiber727: We didn't buy the rights to Call of Duty. Now enjoy Draft of Valor, made by the same studio.
DiscordianTokkan: Most parachutes have One hole, so make sure his has Many
princess_intell: i actually really like how microsoft handles the studios it's bought
Laserbeaks_Fury: The back-up back-up is a sign that reads "Yikes!"
GapFiller: aw Hell naw
PMAvers: I mean, clearly it's time for Medal of Honor to make a comeback
princess_intell: ie, leaving them the bus alone and letting them make games
DiscordianTokkan: Oh, no key caps?
princess_intell: this looks like a children's toy
EikoandMog: Hot swap!
Laserbeaks_Fury: Does th analog stick work?
TemporallyAwry: Okay - if the side controllers actually work as inputs, yes actually. Yes. SirUwU
Laserbeaks_Fury: ^^ right?
EikoandMog: So basically, marketed to me.
heartofgoldfish: that's all the people total yep
MajorFrostbyte: I believe Ian and Beej are in fact ALL THE PEOPLE
DeM0nFiRe: This looks like it's a weird compact layout that isn't even a normal tenkeyless layout. Why would you want to deal with a weird compact layout but have it still take up more room than a normal keyboard lol
Tiber727: @TemporallyAwry They do make one handed keyboards you can use with a mouse. I use a Move controller on PC even.
princess_intell: this looks like those awful "sensory toys" i see in stores sometimes
EikoandMog: It looks like a 67% to me.
TemporallyAwry: @Tiber727 Hilariously, I was thinking of it for special input like editing and stuff.
TemporallyAwry: 350, nah, it's in the thousands PrideLaugh
electric_claire: They haven't made that for years, it didn't sell well
princess_intell: i know they make them for lawyers and accountants too. imagine a streamdeck but with niche legal symbols etc
GapFiller: lrrHORN eyyy Patch Notes!
PMAvers: YEAH!
Izandai: Was there no Checkpoint yesterday?
PMAvers: Basically
PMAvers: I mean, Butterflies are *way* scarier, if you know who Bayo's patron is.
Tiber727: I've played Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, so obviously I'm going for butterflies.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Just add a S++ rank
MajorFrostbyte: But why don't people just git gud?
Getter404: I hate it when I Wink Slave
kynelwynn: Wink Slave sure does hate those Kraken Black Pearls
PMAvers: Some of those challenge stages were hot *horseshit* with the current requirements.
DiscordianTokkan: That feel when your Wink Slave is unusually powerful
Getter404: The only one I gave up on was Train Hell. You know the one
TheMerricat: rip
Tiber727: I adjusted the fun dial a to a higher setting.
princess_intell: i greatly enjoyed the Zero Punctuation review
Laserbeaks_Fury: I tried to play Bayonetta once. Watched the opening cutscene where she's a total badass, then got handed the controls and felt like an utter Neanderthal
Getter404: @Laserbeaks_Fury I know 1&2 have the one-handed "automatic" mode for auto-combos
Mister_BlueSky: Sometimes they're open pre-orders that go on for a while.
Mister_BlueSky: Most of the time, actually.
princess_intell: 10/10 pun
Getter404: No Dial-A-Pirate, I call shenanigans.
Izandai: Won't the true pirate want to just steal the game?
Izandai: You know... Pirate it?
ButButTheJesus: also when I ordered my physical game from them it took like 6 months to deliver. that's how their printing/manufacturing is I guess. unless its different for different games.
TheMerricat: @izandai obviously you don't remember the end of the game He's not a very good pirate He's just going to an amusement park ;)
PMAvers: Pirates aren't rude and respect the work that goes into the craft.
princess_intell: i like that the PC version is in an old-school CD-ROM case
princess_intell: @ButButTheJesus was it print-on-demand?
Getter404: I love sleeves.
ButButTheJesus: @princess_intell um I honestly don't know
PMAvers: Huh, I just looked at Limited Run's website, and I didn't know they had a LOOM Collector's Edition up now too
Mister_BlueSky: For open pre-orders it is basically print on demand. Some games are actually limited, and it'll be mentioned on the page which it is.\
princess_intell: if it was print on demand, that could have been why it took so long. just a guess though
Decaped: there's a floppy disk USB drive in there.
princess_intell: does the PC version come on a CD-rom?
EikoandMog: I think I had nightmares that looked like Zelda VR.
Mister_BlueSky: It's like I'm talking to myself. >_>
jacqui_lantern234: hey ya heccin nerds whomst i love and adore AGGRESSIVELY!!!!!!!!!!!! <3
princess_intell: haha, canadian said "zee"
Izandai: jesus christ
ButButTheJesus: yaaaassss!
princess_intell: omg could you imagine doing majora's mask like this?
HopPoleStudios: Did you here there's an FPS of Fallout 2 as well?
princess_intell: @HopPoleStudios is it worth playing?
Getter404: Huh, I wonder if your shield still stays up automatically if you're not attacking
TheMerricat: I sort of wish the bushes were actually solid and not just posters though
HopPoleStudios: @princess_intell haven't had a chance to play it yet, will report back
princess_intell: majora's mask would be TERRIFYING
Invitare: because no one wants that
princess_intell: inexplicibly reminds me of portal
EvilBadman: Oh god, a wallmaster
Tiber727: I want to see Majora's Mask in VR where you look down at your body and see it transform.
Getter404: A VR Tingle game would be AO, unfortunately
McArgh: Cheer500
princess_intell: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out for an interactive schedule, or for a Google Calendar version.
Ciennas0219: (psst- have they discussed the OGL fiasco yet?)
princess_intell: no
TheMerricat: given there's not much humor in it I doubt they will
Sarah_Serinde: How does the OGL relate to video game news?
Ciennas0219: (I haven't watched chillpoint ever. I wasn't sure if it would come up here.)
Sarah_Serinde: If you're not looking for a discussion on how it might impact D&D-related games, it's probably not very relevant to stream
Sarah_Serinde: Chillpoint and Checkpoint are about video game news
SquidVorb: what
Earthenone: !findquote balls
LRRbot: Quote #2964: "I want less ball..." —Cori [2016-07-13]
GapFiller: this looks like a potential TTSF
Laserbeaks_Fury: Or even adapt a Centipede cabinet
virre_: Trackballs are hard to get hold off too
SquidVorb: You can get a mouse for free on Marketplace if you look lol
HopPoleStudios: So it's just a football on deodorant sticks? wowsers
SquidVorb: Imagine all the debris that would be under that ball
Getter404: Those trackball arcade machines were designed to mangle fingertips
Earthenone: this is what sonic wishes it was
Izandai: heh
Laserbeaks_Fury: Wait, the armadillos just run? They don't roll?
princess_intell: this looks like a lovingly constructed passion project
Izandai: @Laserbeaks_Fury They rolled sometimes.
ThorSokar: yea, I've seen the cabinet at a con, it's a huge bowling ball sized ball
Izandai: Might depend on your speed or something?
EricTheOrange: I don't know if you can cardboard a trackbasll
EikoandMog: Hehehehe
EikoandMog: Please add that to the quotes please. Heather: "We have balls just lying around everywhere"
TheAinMAP: FBSpiral
xantos69: As an American, I am comfortable with this stand.
princess_intell: what about football 17776
EvilBadman: FBPenalty
Izandai: demipyroLul
TheMerricat: for someone who refuses to acknowledge American football you have a lot of opinions on it
DiscordianTokkan: American Handegg
Plasterboard: NFL Football vs Rugby?
ThorSokar: just sneak them in peanut butter
DiscordianTokkan: Hooray!
saucemaster5000: Acting out when the punishment is removed... someone is trying to test boundaries
Izandai: Is it really a cancellation if the game wasn't announced?
princess_intell: wow i'm in a way better mood now, thank you
Laserbeaks_Fury: Tax breaks
PMAvers: I assume they have to announce it to the public so they can write it off as a loss.
SocraticMethod: I think it's for investors. They aren't necessarily announcing cancellations but cost-cutting measures.
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's okay we still have AC 4
GapFiller: if anything this is a way of garning interest cz it gets sleuths on the case and years later stuff is unearthed
richard_ermen: I think Skull & Bones won't ever see the light of day, or if it comes it'll be really bad because all those delays are usually not a good sign.
princess_intell: "look at all the money we're not spending. please don't leave."
PMAvers: or back at E3 when those were happening
EricTheOrange: sadly a bad company is bad because of management. and if the company does bad that just means they lay off employees. Shit rolls down hill, when bad things happen people in power push the cost onto people not in power.
EvilBadman: E3 2017 was the first appearance
PMAvers: Apparently it's been in dev since 2013.
richard_ermen: But in good news, a new Uncharted-Waters-Clone is finally available in english as 1.0 on Steam ^^
TemporallyAwry: PrideShrug still a faster timeline than the Duke
richard_ermen: So hop on in on your anime sea journey :D
Laserbeaks_Fury: Meanwhile, Sea of Thieves just raking it in
DiscordianTokkan: I Forget, how long was FFXV in production? That sounds like it might give it a run for Noctis' money for longest development hell
LordZarano: The Duke Nukem Forever zone
DiscordianTokkan: (Other than Duke, yea)
princess_intell: didn't duke nukem get sued
princess_intell: after release
EvilBadman: @DiscordianTokkan 10 years
Simonark: Mine O'Clock, ideally!
TheMandrew: no rhythm games in sea of thieves
princess_intell: what is the longest development hell?
Izandai: Pirates: Extremely rude and impolite.
TemporallyAwry: They keep asking the community what it wants - and people keep asking for SinglePlayer - and they keep telling the fans they're wrong and don't "understand" PrideShrug
PMAvers: Like, at least Puzzle Pirates got that right.
richard_ermen: Best case scenario, Pirates didn't want to fight at all, if possible.
Izandai: Oh definitely better to be a privateer. You're just a pirate with a fallback.
princess_intell: unless you're the last of barrett's privateers
ogundiety: Puzzle pirates had some damn fine ideas.
Tiber727: Privateer is a pirate that one country won't attack.
TheMandrew: letters of marque come from the king, to the scummiest vessels you'll ever see
DiscordianTokkan: God damn them all!
virre_: Hmm Energy prizes?
gnyrinn: "Surprisingly slower than expected"
ogundiety: Gonna go with 'We need more multiplayer games' is what we're going to see out of it
ogundiety: Because, well, that is always the answer they like
RockPusher: Too big to fail, too big to succeed
DiscordianTokkan: *writing a 1-star yelp review* "I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns; she'd no tears. There were so many tears."
EikoandMog: Isn't borrowing money from the future to pay people in the past how a Ponzi scheme works?
EricTheOrange: sunk cost
richard_ermen: @EikoandMog It's at least unsustainable at some point, usually 3-5 years down the line.
Tiber727: @EikoandMog If you have a time machine, it's actually a great way to get rich.
EikoandMog: FF14 is literally holding Square Enix afloat.
Invitare: I saw basically no advertising for the Mario+rabbids game
Invitare: I didn't even realise it came out until recently
DiscordianTokkan: I think FFXIV and FFXVI will be the only SE games I enjoy. I bounced off of the FFXIII/XV/VIIR combat system.
Simonark: Same as all the reports that Avatar 2 wouldn't be profitable until after it hit 1.5-2 Billion in revenue, that's unhealthy as a standard to set, for everyone.
DiscordianTokkan: (Modern games, I mean)
Sethalidos: the problem is that those companies expect ALL of the money
Simonark: Even if THEY hit that, no studio can endure working that way.
princess_intell: so the precure model
TheMerricat: every year there's a new batch of 12-year-olds is a very bad quote to come out of contacts
TheMerricat: context
PMAvers: The DCU (Dance Cinematic Universe)
Laserbeaks_Fury: Kinda like the Rhythm Heaven games
Sethalidos: it's the problem with capitalism as a whole, it relies on there being infinite growth, which is impossible
DiscordianTokkan: @invitare I saw an ad for it Once, on a local station during the news. Problem is, the target demo they cater to for the usual ads for the news is hearing aids and retirement homes. So they advised to... grandparents I guess? To get it for grandkids?
Simonark: All the news that's fit to point at.
RockPusher: *pulls up AC: Valhalla Steam page* hmmm, one, and two Ubisoft business decisions that prevents me even considering buying their game - wonder why they hate money…
niccus: The Last of Us just came out i guess

Decaped: Nah, they changed things that make sense for TV
TheMerricat: for some reason people are really upset about the fact that they changed the zombie virus as being propagated by tentacles instead of spores
Tiber727: The Last of Us video game is already a TV show. It has a linear story and a Hollywood script. You just do the action bits.
Simonark: Wait, they're murdering the actors for real? Because... the deaths on TV aren't real either
Amentur: That's the exact argument, Beej
Tiber727: So I don't see the point of an exact translation to TV.
niccus: unless you're watching Ben-Hur or something
TemporallyAwry: @Tiber727 Plus some emergent gameplay with bricks
richard_ermen: Wait, Beej does not imagine actors playing roles when reading a book?
distrustingspectator: i like when Beej does this.
distrustingspectator: Let Beej be free
Simonark: Hold out for the radio play!
richard_ermen: Once again, TheRealBeej TM
Laserbeaks_Fury: Books just words, real emotional investments come from Krog cave painting
gualdhar: is Ashley within driving distance? I'm sure Heather can borrow her spray bottle
ogundiety: God, didnt' they actually do that once?
Micsig: give it the 'ol street fighter treatment
ogundiety: A book->movie->book->movie again?
lirazel64: x2flowSpinBagel
Izandai: demipyroLul
Elevation_4000_FT: Im still salty Nolan North couldn't play Nathan Drake
TheTekkieman: Didn't the Insomniac Spider-Man change Peter's face to look more like Tom Holland?
TemporallyAwry: I dunno - I heard someone say he was the coin-sound. PrideShrug
DiscordianTokkan: "Yep, you're right!" Damn it, I shouldn't have been drinking
Simonark: But one of the main characters is a child, and not voiced by one in the game, that seems like a problem.
niccus: yahoo, threat neutralized

TheMerricat: @simonark amusingly he failed one of them thought he was dead wasn't paying attention to the game and then lost the second one because he wasn't actually trying
PMAvers: Serge died by falling into that one Gang Beasts level
richard_ermen: In Serge's defense, he's not a gamer before 9 AM.
