RockPusher: People seem to forget that CheckPoint is at its core, a comedy show
GapFiller: indeed
definenull: time for more choint!
kusinohki: comedy? in this ecomedy??
beowuuf: i mean the getting grief is a reason not to do it, especially when it's only videogames tangential, and kept evolving. The only way to make it funny is to point out people accepted most of the crap with the D&D Beyond license, which let them try it on the next level :p

definenull: did Heather manage to get Nintendo merch?
stardusted_: hi friends!
josh___something: Is silksong out already?

Nydestroyer: oh no

iris_of_ether: lunarj1Heart

TheMerricat: so this isn't just my internet The stream is going dead?
Juliamon: Stream is fine
richard_ermen: What if I want to watch Chillpoint live at 2x speed?
Nenluen: my first two are work monitors... you're all my main watching screen
josh___something: what about the theoretical 4th screen content
TheMerricat: nvm
Ivalenz_: Double the engagement doubles the fun.
GapFiller: as a viewer I'm offended by the idea of people treating themselves as 2nd screen content
kusinohki: "good enough to be on the main screen" - next t-shirt
MolaMolaphant: watching the Is This Your Card vod on the other monitor
Decaped: I am lilterally listening to this on a 4th monitor on a 2nd computer while sorting old photo files
mowdownjoe: Chat is my second screen content! (Consequence of watching on the Android TV app.)
definenull: when does it count as View botting
GapFiller: prickly of me yeh but it speaks to a kind of self conception that just rubs me exactly the wrong way
Nydestroyer: feedback loop
beowuuf: this 360 degree review scares me
GapFiller: LRR has never not been meta af
mowdownjoe: Was waiting for Beej to have *opinions*.
Wicker_Guide: @definenull James talked about "watching" Pestily for Tarkov drops with a closed, muted tablet. Whatever the line is, I think that's past it
Nydestroyer: Now we have learned the only way to be known is to be rude Kappa
RockPusher: !control
LRRbot: Jesse is in control.
GapFiller: one of the first LRR sketches 20 years ago was Quantum Doc after all

RockPusher: Dirty data
iris_of_ether: whoof, that is sneaky and problematic
Wicker_Guide: nobody you would be able to talk to on a phone would have that access to the code
RockPusher: iris_of_ether not really sneaky - just regular old IT flubs
Snowcookies: Jake went to a farm upstate?
MagicalAttackGecko: Jake has ascended

kusinohki: expecting a call support person to last more than a week...
GhostValv: time to speedrun this troubleshooting
beowuuf: oh honey no
iris_of_ether: @rockpusher Oh for sure, I was having a hard time figuring out the correct adjective for "subtle and hard to debug" :)
beowuuf: lol
princess_intell: are we 3 for 3 on nice customer service people?
definenull: it probably sounds very suspicious to a tech support guy "hey I found this set of weird instructions on the Internet, mind going to the internal servers to do this weird thing for me?"
GhostValv: oof
Wicker_Guide: monarchWheeze
RockPusher: iris_of_ether I call those """fun"""
Wicker_Guide: @definenull at best, it probably feels like being a nurse at a clinic and having someone say "give me this pill I read about on WebMD"
RockPusher: in the same way that Losing is Fun in DF
GhostValv: Bob
EvilBadman: Just casually beejdropping their support computers

EvilBadman: @josh___something One on Desert Bus
iris_of_ether: :D
definenull: *2022
beowuuf: now :p
Nydestroyer: Ask if the person who helped you out is okay :P
MurphEP: Nintendo driving a wedge
kusinohki: friend told me a story of calling support, getting someone with a thick India accent with the name "Bob". He called BS and asked for his real name. Once hearing his real name went "ok, I guess I'll call you Bob"
ANeMzero: "please help me because this is causing an unhealthy power dynamic in my marriage"
josh___something: Should I have added a Sarcasm tag on that XD Sorry <3
EvilBadman: Oh haha I thought it mighta been sarcastic
CaptainSpam: Wait... did you commit deposit fraud as a child?
Nydestroyer: Improve your oncall docs!
CaptainSpam: The worstest of crimes! LUL
Nydestroyer: :P
definenull: "expect more of these calls"
RockPusher: This is a Problem
definenull: you're just more stubborn than the average person
Nydestroyer: Nintendo power user problems Kappa
iris_of_ether: :D
Nydestroyer: Get the SEO masters on it
Raiz0k: @kusinohki At least they made the call person's day, by way of concession xD.
RockPusher: Change Request: Expunge expired item IDs from user cart table to fix Problem ID nnn
ApplicativeJones: Is it possible Beej never got the hang of Thursdays?
definenull: does tingle count?
Wicker_Guide: Tingle wear's leggings
kusinohki: "I bought extra stuff to get free shipping" means it wasn't free shipping...
shurtal: he wears plastic bags over his feet
Brozard: @RockPusher Is that the problem? There's bad/expired items in a cart that the user can't see or remove?
heyalexdaily: It's Ocarina of Time, not Sockarina of Time.
corpocracy: I feel like they all wear tights and leggings
EvilBadman: Does Tingle's tights have footies
Sethalidos: one can argue he wears a full body sock
EvilBadman: Beej is just out of touch on Thursday
iris_of_ether: @brozard That's the theory
RockPusher: Brozard sure sounds like what Heather was describing
Lord_Hosk: Every week I forget that you are doing this show too.
kusinohki: ^^^
definenull: more preamble
ANeMzero: Every week needs a little jamais vu
Brozard: Hey, it's Persona Man!
definenull: GIMME
GhostValv: :O
josh___something: Quagsire!!!!
josh___something: baby :D
Wicker_Guide: @Brozard As best Heather's research can tell it's either that or the cart component itself was updated and the item link broke
princess_intell: those who have not watched the piplup step, i IMPLORE you to do so
ghyllnox: Head Empty
EvilBadman: God bless Japanese terms for universal feelings
Cadyn: forgot something you know well: like Chillpoint!
Brozard: @iris_of_ether @RockPusher @Wicker_Guide Thanks, I arrived after her explanation
beowuuf: ironically this will be the word you won't recall when trying to explain the concept :p
definenull: the question mark as the handle is genius
Lord_Hosk: Except German
Laserbeaks_Fury: We just add -ussy
MWGNZ: poggers is a one word concept
GhostValv: big mood
Sethalidos: less borrow and more mug in a dark alley
EvilBadman: @Lord_Hosk Yeah german just jams all the words together into a bigger compound word.
RockPusher: Beej is a cow?
Wicker_Guide: I still don't know what that means, but I'm used to that
josh___something: -ussy officially on some kind of dictionary
richard_ermen: Have you tried German? You can just make up new words by compounding them together. Its fun. Go Katamari Damarcy on words!
CaptainSpam: BEEJ PLS
GapFiller: thats the magic of analytical languages
LordZarano: escher3PUN
gnyrinn: As a polyglot: This cuts both ways. In fact it cuts all ways.

EvilBadman: @richard_ermen Same hat!
GapFiller: English is a synthetic lanuage and therefore has a high morpheme bper word ratio
Reecer6: always good to bring up the very specific "defenestrate" that for sure doesn't have a direct translation universally
Wicker_Guide: shadenfreude
BrowneePoints: HEY!
goombalax: Heather why
BrowneePoints: You leave Adam Jensen ALONE
GapFiller: Japanese (and Chinese) otoh are both analytical languages w/ low morpheme word ratios
TheMerricat: @GapFiller those all sure sound like words... :P
RockPusher: We need a tabletop bed of nails to put in front of Beej during ChillPoint :D
Wicker_Guide: quid pro quo
distrustingspectator: it's okay. i hit the table too when im passionate.
iris_of_ether: Oh that never stops me :D
Sethalidos: Heather with the HOT TAKE
silvertabbycat: English is several languages in a trenchcoat
corpocracy: English has a lot of idioms to explain complex concepts
distrustingspectator: @RockPusher ouch!
CouldntPickAUsername: wasn't there a watch and play game called that?
GapFiller: TheMerricat tldr its as Heather said some languages need several paragraphs to get across what other languages manage w/ just a couple syllables
Reecer6: i mean, there was? it was an old commodore 64 game
Wicker_Guide: there's also the movie ex machina
RockPusher: Deus Ex Machina II is the Ian Drury voiced … experience… they played on Watch+Play
frnknstn: My favourite phrase is "English is the lingua franca", which literally means "English is the French language" adopted from Latin
BenevolentCow: there are whole swathes of english words that no one knows in the dictionary to describe concepts but they may as well be foreign
RockPusher: it was sufficiently weird I bought it
Reecer6: it's more of an hour-long interactive art piece that you have to set a separate tape recording to
Nenluen: 'have a go' is the version of that i'm more familiar with
princess_intell: "grok" is a good one
RockPusher: its the one where you are a sperm and a baby and an old man, flying through an abstract
Laserbeaks_Fury: But when you look at Boos, they get shy
definenull: time for grokky
BrowneePoints: Didn't Grok come from a book?
goombalax: Grokkery
GhostValv: ???
Joecool190: Grok is from Stanger in a Strange land
Raiz0k: Also, Latin phrase inserts "sounding weird" is probably a recent thing in European languages.
GapFiller: gorkk the horrorshow ect
distrustingspectator: what does Grok mean?
CommanderPulsar: Grok is from Heinlein.
MolaMolaphant: yeah, Grok is from Heinlein.
CataclysmicReverb: "Envongle this stitch" is how i've heard that
Oleetku: Heather you are my favorite for doing things just to get a rise out of chat
BrowneePoints: @Joecool190 yea that's what I thought
badpandabear: I thought Grok came from Stranger in a Strange Land from Heinlein
Brozard: Panalysts mugs?
iris_of_ether: To understand something deeply, I think
Raiz0k: No, that's grep
Eklinaar: In the book it means to fully and utterly understand something as completely as possible
BrowneePoints: yea 1961 Novel. To intuit something naturally @iris_of_ether
Raiz0k: But grok is still *nix slang.
objectivefailure: Is cromulent a word yet?
Texan_Reverend: Beej, when you smacked your hand, I think you bumped the mic, causing it to point away from you and making you quieter.
GapFiller: early compsci people being into a golden age schifi author? never!
ApplicativeJones: grok is part of the man system
Raiz0k: "Too deeply understand"
TheMerricat: "What is grok in Linux? Introduction. Grok is simple software that allows you to easily parse logs and other files. With grok, you can turn unstructured log and event data into structured data. The grok program is a great tool for parsing log data and program output."
tyrsredritehand: To deeply understand on a fundamental level.
LordZarano: Grok was a Jargon File thing
BrowneePoints: Unix programmers are NERD? Couldn't be!
MolaMolaphant: Grokking is to understand a thing so deeply that you can bend its will to your own
RockPusher: If you work with Elastic stack you will probably have setup Grok filters
corpocracy: I say grok but only within certain circles
definenull: "a"..
LordZarano: Jargon File also where the Magic/More Magic story is from
Wicker_Guide: As someone with family in the defense industry, this is both entirely familiar to me and also headdesk inducing
beowuuf: at this point in time is it not just a place for real spies to pass their documents with perfect cover as being idiots :p
definenull: not readily publicly available
GapFiller: the really hilarious part is that not only is this not the first time this story has been on CheckPoint it isnt even the second or third
tyrsredritehand: Secured Unclass information
gnyrinn: They need a banner on every forum page: "Don't try and win arguments with classified data!"
RockPusher: Good old ITAR
iris_of_ether: @lordzarano I have Magic/More Magic printed out and stuck to my cubicle
EvilBadman: I think we are up to 7 nickels on this, in the parlance of our times
Nukified: oopsy
GapFiller: gnyrinn that is absolutely NOT gonna be enough for these people
TheMerricat: "Earlier this week, military documents relating to the F-16 fighter jet were shared by a player attempting to win an argument." - "Then, over a dozen system manuals for the F-15E US strike fighter plane were leaked - a vehicle that isn't even in the game yet."
Coloneljesus: lmao
Juliamon: It was NOT the same guy
richard_ermen: Some people don't learn
GhostValv: D:
Raiz0k: @Wicker_Guide If it's headdesk inducing, instead of eye-rolling, that means the family haven't shared all their stories yet.
GapFiller: some people just will not get the clue no matter how blatantly yr say it
josh___something: oh GOD, thank fuck XD
definenull: ohai offscreen graham
BrowneePoints: Idk, I don't keep track of flying murder machines
josh___something: also, hi G!
gnyrinn: @GapFiller Fair point.
Wicker_Guide: @Raiz0k fair lol
GhostValv: "hold my beer"
Snowcookies: You would think ppl who work for the military understand confidentiallity
Juliamon: "NOT the same guy" is NOT BETTER
richard_ermen: t this point all those secret services HAVE to keep watch of War Thunder forums
AveryCorvus: "Days since military hardware leak: 0"
Lord_Hosk: I can post so much information about the T-10D parachute. The Canadian and Australian army will be so upset with me (the US no longer uses it)
beowuuf: can they just become a givernment department? MiniK
josh___something: on at least 5(?) separate accounts of this happening?
GapFiller: Snowcookies otoh consider the kinda nerds who get this deep into military hardware pedantry
kusinohki: I can share more classified docs than you - the new "my dad can beat up your dad playground argument..."
TheMerricat: So as a reminder, the devs are _NOT_ based in the US, so this is double bad since it's 'exporting' the content.
jubale1: so, dnd TOS talk?
Wicker_Guide: monarchWheeze
GapFiller: jubale1 nah
definenull: this sounds like the devs holding a spray bottle
Brozard: TSR talk
fronominal414: Have you ever tried to eat cereal with a fork from a broken plate ?
GapFiller: definenull jlrrNo
jacqui_lantern234: hey friends!!! reminder that yall are loved AGGRESSIVELY!!!!!! <3
princess_intell: "we will delete classified government documents" should not have to be explicitly said by a company's PR rep
Brozard: dangit jacqui_lantern234 ya got me
kusinohki: hi jacqui!!
Raiz0k: Oh, what Paul is saying is very reminiscent of the "Bohemia Interactive dev gets arrested" stories.
josh___something: Will never be able to do it XD
beowuuf: never can even if they get another source :p
Coloneljesus: weird owl?
GapFiller: Weird Al
princess_intell: why weird al?
Raiz0k: milaboo?
Lord_Hosk: "If you tell me a song you would like to parody, I cant parody it because then its not my song"
TheMerricat: LOL
definenull: its military knowledge without the opsec
jubale1: Magic devs are kinda the same. Don’t suggest mechanics because they can’t risk paying attention and getting people to claim they stole the idea.
princess_intell: fair argument
Lord_Hosk: im paraphrasing
RockPusher: People whose brains get a kick out of the idea that they have access to privileged information
EricTheOrange: "i've had argument with people on the internet" I'll stop you right their.
Wicker_Guide: that is absolutely a legit strategy
definenull: yup, the best way to get the right answer is is to be horribly wrong on the internet
objectivefailure: Taking advantage of a nerd's need to be right. Genius.
MWGNZ: espionage via shitposting
Coloneljesus: cunningham's law but it's military
bytecaster: "Your espionage strategy is being wrong on the internet?" "Yes, and it is very effective"
TheMerricat: The minor 'good' part about all of these leaks is if they are out there enough that milboos can find them and post them, the 'bad guys' probably have them already anyway.
Wicker_Guide: I legit throught you were baiting us
ApplicativeJones: Stack Exchange is the name of the larger network Stack Overflow belongs to. It is correct
GapFiller: bytecaster but yr gotta understand nobody is allowed to be wrong on the internet Kappa
kusinohki: this sounds like a terrible Bond movie...
Raiz0k: Beej, Stack Exchange is the actual name of the "supersite", so you did get it right.
rrtycoon2: this is turning into a familiar programming story.
Wicker_Guide: but Gundam isn't "REEEL MEELTARY" etc
SK__Ren: I believe both WoTanks and WoWarships both had this happen in the last few years as well
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
SaxPython: #TheLore
TheMerricat: World of Tanks and Warships are more arcade based, they don't pride themselves on accuracy.
jacqui_lantern234: lmao heather yes!!!!!
Coloneljesus: oh beej
definenull: oh beej...
Angreed66: Gundums are a terrible way to wage war in that they are terribly inefficient
GhostValv: amazonWut
jubale1: Experts Exchange is @$%@#$ not part of that network.
drcthulu: series of tubes
Coloneljesus: gundam exchange exists, surely?
Araragi298: everyone knows the internet is a series of tubes
RockPusher: Is this web world-wide, Heather?
bytecaster: @GapFiller Except chat, cause chat is always wrong, right?
CururuGuasu: I hear they have the internet on computers now
Wicker_Guide: !listen
LRRbot: Always listen to chat, Never listen to chat.
EvilBadman: I mean Japan has a life size Gundam, there must be a manual
jacqui_lantern234: i LOVE speaking Moonese!!! :p
GapFiller: bytecaster chat is always wrong but always thinks its right
GapFiller: which is just the worst
CururuGuasu: That Gundam came from the moon
Coloneljesus: factory work?
Brozard: That's called a job, Beej
Wicker_Guide: MMOs
Raiz0k: @jubale1 Oh no, it def isn't.
RockPusher cues the AC 3am music
MrSVCD: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 36:58.
SaxPython: CurseLit CurseLit CurseLit
RockPusher: that feels appropriate for ChillPoint :D
definenull: that's genius
jacqui_lantern234: AHAHAHAHA thats so GOOD
GhostValv: wowie
SK__Ren: Wait, you can cheat at a 122333 run?
jacqui_lantern234: "Farm Upstate"
BrowneePoints: Nuzleaf and something
josh___something: Nuzleaf, the pokemon
JDogg2K4: Was a comic.
Sodaman64: the term Nuzlocke orignates from a joke from the OG comic
BrowneePoints: it comes from Nuzleaf that's all I remember
MungoDude: Nuzleaf and Locke from Lost
MolaMolaphant: it was a nuzleaf named Locke
Reecer6: locke came from the fact that they named a pokemon after locke from lost i think
Sodaman64: Was a Nuzleaf drawn like Locke from Lost yeah
Grusommegeir: yeah its from john locke and nuzleaf
Cadyn: if he dies, he dies
GapFiller: if case anyones THAT desperate to be right
EvilBadman: too late, I've already posted detailed pokemon schematics
CururuGuasu: There entire catch phrase is “Gotta catch ‘em all”. I don’t see them adding a “…or don’t” mode
Reecer6: unfortunately i've already put the youtube comment in my calendar
Laserbeaks_Fury: If you let your Pokemon faint, they lose all respect for you and leave.
MollyPalooza: I would love it if we could turn on a level cap for pokemon
Snowcookies: Worlds Best Flower Picker
Wicker_Guide: I agree beej, we shouldn't canonize this saint
CururuGuasu: Nook’s advocate
SaxPython: CounterCheckPoint
RockPusher: It is indeed a very common thing that nonetheless baffles me - the tendency of people to fire off comments before watching the video/reading the article fully
GapFiller: better get the spray bottle ready Heather Kappa
heyalexdaily: I say this as someone who did eight months of law school: The devil has enough lawyers.
josh___something: Exactly, paul :p
niccus: shouldercheckpoint
CururuGuasu: Tell them they have to get blue roses without time traveling
Raiz0k: Oooh, we're going meta!
Wicker_Guide: Hollow knight is absolutely a soulslike
Coloneljesus: HK is soul-like-ish
bytecaster: It is pretty close
Decaped: Hollow Knight is a souls game
GhostValv: I loved Elden Ring and Vampire Survivors :)
Lord_Hosk: People who have a soul play it. Its therefore a souls game
EvilBadman: get in the comments!
Joecool190: Its is a souls game
bytecaster: Both in theming and mechanics
mowdownjoe: HK is close.
josh___something: I have the tenacity to slam myself into a Monster in Monster Hunter... I do NOT have the patience for a Farming Sim
GapFiller: is this another one of Beejs opinions thats just wrong Kappa
BrowneePoints: it doesn't give them the ability to treat people like crap and be elitist so yea they probably wouldn't play Animal Crossing
Coloneljesus: Dark Souls is a Knightlike
Raiz0k: Yeah, +1 on Beej underestimating the masochistic tendencies of these kind of players.
MolaMolaphant: I think hollow knight might be more like dark souls than sekiro is
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's because Dark Souls borrowed stuff from Metroidvanias
JDogg2K4: Gaming....finds a way
SaxPython: Nook Prison Experiment
bytecaster: Chat, I know I did it too, but we just talked about resisting the urge to correct people on the internet, and yet we did this.
GapFiller: but thats boring Beej!
BrowneePoints: Hollow Knight is the purest expression of Classic Metroid Design with a few Dark Souls mechanics
Wicker_Guide: so.... we should try pyromancy?
BrowneePoints: wasn't there an article about Nintendogs possibly coming to Smartphones?
Raiz0k: @bytecaster It's a widely shared rule for a reason.
ErisOfSpace: turns out, there's no official definition of "hardcore gamer" and they are a bit of a plurality. Some of whom, probably, like AC
KeytarCat: @BrowneePoints including the cute horror!
BrowneePoints: Yea! There was a story JUST yesterday about a Nintendo Patent that hints we MIGHT get Nintendog as a Mobile App
Decaped: Beej probably just differentiates 3D sword games from 2D sword games for inexplicable reasons.
Wicker_Guide: @bytecaster but this pile of restricted access documents totally proves my point lrrBEEJ
GapFiller: just the one problem Paul? Kappa
Nydestroyer: allegedly making games
princess_intell: nintendogs was the first nintendo game i ever played on the light pink ds i got as a birthday present in 2010
BrowneePoints: if you like Xcom games chat PLEASE try Mario x Rabbids. It's real good
Coloneljesus: shouda made a rayman
princess_intell: excuse me, DS lite
princess_intell: mario x rabbids was 100x better than it had any right to be
Wicker_Guide: I feel like it's not used incorrectly, it's used as meant, it's that the meaning itself is preposterous
gnyrinn: Noting that we are giving him a massive benefit of the doubt.
RockPusher: Maybe the idiom works differently in France because they play on clay? lrrBEEJ
drcthulu: idioms tend not to translate
noa2828: Get your balls off my court
Lady_Abigor subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 35 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Lady_Abigor! (Today's storm count: 48)
ErisOfSpace: Idk if he didn't understand the idiom, I've def had managers talk like that
niccus: the ball's in your court *sprints away*
Raiz0k: Regardless, no one should be excusing a top-level manager on misusing idioms in any language.
ErisOfSpace: ** American, english speaking managers
TheMerricat: ""I heard your feedback and I'm sorry this was perceived that way," Guillemot reportedly told staff at the start of the Q&A. "When saying 'the ball is in your court' to deliver our lineup on time and at the expected level of quality, I wanted to convey the idea that more than ever I need your talent and energy to make it happen. This is a collective journey that starts of course with myself and with the leadership team to create the conditions for all of us to succeed together.""
GapFiller: TheMerricat the non apology part was the best bit
GapFiller: cz ofc he aint gonna just say sorry my bad
Raiz0k: And the follow up question for this is of course: "what did you mean in French"?
tyrsredritehand: That first sentence is bursting with arrogance.
matthaus_c: big "I'm sorry you feel that way"
Brozard: Have some solidarity with your fellow CEOs, Paul lrrBEEJ
josh___something: R6S bought them a lot of grace from me, That has sadly ran out
GapFiller: Brozard nalvLUL nalvCool
TheMerricat: @matthaus_c literally "I'm sorry you feel that way" just with different words.
Coloneljesus: embracer?
EvilBadman: Vivendi?
EricTheOrange: to be fair, when companies are bad, it's the managment that's bad, not the employees.
gnyrinn: @Brozard Isn't Paul a Co-President and not a CEO?
They_Are_Alyx: They fought off a takeover attempt by Vivendi
RockPusher: Ubisoft lost me when UPlay got bolted onto everything
saucemaster5000: "I'm sorry the balls in your court that way" ... "Guillaume, no, see..."
Brozard: @Brozard That's probably correct, and I didn't care enough about the difference for an easy joke
gnyrinn: @Brozard That is a position I respect.
DoodlestheGreat: @RockPusher Ubisoft lost me when they stuck Starforce DRM on everything back in the past.
Brozard: @Brozard *Predator hand shake*
princess_intell: ugh there was so much purity-testing on tumblr back in the day
Izandai: Back in the day? I have some bad news.
Wicker_Guide: and no matter what name you say, the face behind the mask is probably Penguin Random House
jessieimproved: You just have to decine where your personal lines are drawn
the777s: ugh, Nintendo and Youtubers...
RockPusher: "How about self-published?" "Have you seen how badly most authors treat themselves‽" lrrBEEJ
ButButTheJesus: every stage of the video game industry has some horrors
CaptainSpam: Purity is toxic. Never forget this.
CururuGuasu: This was the main thesis of “The Good Place”
Coloneljesus: @CaptainSpam not in water
princess_intell: i just want to go back and tell me as a teenager "none of this is your fault, you are a child in a broken system"
GapFiller: this particular discussion is hitting REAL personally due to recent events related to distant friends of friends
Wicker_Guide: @Coloneljesus pure distilled water is not healthy
Nydestroyer: Corporations use the guilt for their own gain as well... Looking at you Cokeacola pushing reduce reuse recycle so they could stop making reusable bottles
Tiber727: Perfection doesn't exist, so there's no point comparing society to an ideal that could never exist.
GapFiller: dont really have a personal stake but that toxic purity has been at the centre of a serious beef on my personal periphery just this week
TheMerricat: @Nydestroyer So I have to wonder how many people actually utilize Taco Bell's program for recycling used sauce packets...
Raiz0k: Being hypocritical is sometimes an intermediate state for facilitating growth. Most stuff is continuous, where you can't magically get from "this is right" to "this is wrong"
Izandai: Are 10 year olds even fans of Harry Potter these days?
princess_intell: i think seeing a lot of that kind of puritanism when i was really young (like in middle school) was kind of damaging as a kid
MolaMolaphant: Yeah, Rowling is like weirdly specific on that point
Lord_Hosk: @Izandai 100% its still a popular series
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
virre_: Might be more than one I suspect
Izandai: @Izandai Hm. Alright then.
Juliamon: their logo typography is hella sick too
Nydestroyer: A country known for the immortals ruling how the language is defined, they are good at names
Kaorti: also she gets royalties she spends on oppressing trans people directly. It's a pretty direct line to causing harm.
RockPusher: France does like a good strike
princess_intell: like being told "you are a Bad Person if you ever liked this fictional thing" probably wasn't great for me
GapFiller: France does strikes RIGHT
definenull: holy
Raiz0k: Don't you have trams in Canada?
DeM0nFiRe: Haha
Nydestroyer: Glass says "break when striking"
ButButTheJesus: fuck yeah,
the777s: strike hot dogs!
Izandai: demipyroLul Heather that was genius.
Brozard: seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap seabatClap
gnyrinn: The French workforce is like 70% unionized. Also by (in-)complete coincidence, it is more productive than a lot of less unionized economies.
constablecrab: Heather wins the Internet for this week.
GapFiller: May 68 2 here we go
princess_intell: apparently railroad and airline workers go on strike once a year during negotiations
Nydestroyer: We need french lan parties
Lord_Hosk: Izandai the hosklings have all read the books and love them, we have not purchased anything new however they just reread the copies of the books I bought at a yard sale 15 years ago.
definenull: with hotdogs!
Kaorti: respect the french
virre_: Its a General Strike
BrowneePoints: Look, this is the same group of people who wheeled out Guillotines in front of their Parliament just a few years ago when they did something stupid. France has this down to a science
Izandai: @princess_intell Don't you love it when online teens reinvent Catholicism?/s
LordZarano: Ooh! Hot dogs with French baguettes as buns!
saucemaster5000: go on

TheAinMAP: SabaPing PrideSaba jlrrFishin
Coloneljesus: what about crime WITH fish?
the777s: served a random fish and call it Cod? lol
GapFiller: we all remember that one Simpsons episode
princess_intell: @Izandai it was fantastic for my mental health! i'm totally not still working through those issues as an adult!
WiJohn: I'm curious about regular fish crime now
niccus: darn, no need to call in our animal smuggling expert
Lord_Hosk: Many of their classmates wear shirts and dress up as wizards for Halloween
Raiz0k: There's also the "with" option.
Angreed66: Retirement systems aren't built sustainably and rely on constant growth to break even
DeM0nFiRe: @Coloneljesus That's called codspiracy
Diabore: this fish was thorough
definenull: that's a cute sprite
princess_intell: @DeM0nFiRe bravo, and get out
Snowcookies: fish had a gamer rage moment Kappa
the777s: fish, "I will destroy the money system!"
Wicker_Guide: @Angreed66 sort of. Retirement systems rely on growth matching inflation to break even. the 'problem' is that more people have been retiring than entering the workforce for decades
accountmadeforants: This person made the fish control things without their knowledge or consent.
princess_intell: i wonder if there's a fish behvior study in here somewhere
Nydestroyer: wait there are multiple fish, who is to blame?
DeM0nFiRe: @princess_intell LUL
Nydestroyer: is this a collective fish crime?
Wicker_Guide: @Nydestroyer the person who set up the sensors
Angreed66: @Wicker_Guide The problem with that problem is that needs to happen to help the environment.
definenull: check your laptop for fish!
RockPusher: Fish crashed YouTube fugiWow
the777s: it's a conspiracy! something smells fishy
Izandai: @Lord_Hosk I guess it really shouldn't be surprising to me that the most popular children's book series of the century would... Continue to be that.
RockPusher: Fish too stronk, can crash things via video now too!
Wicker_Guide: @Angreed66 ??? people retiring doesn't help the environment? It can help those people's quality of life...
Izandai: @princess_intell mattlrHeart lrrHEART mattlrHeart lrrHEART mattlrHeart lrrHEART
RockPusher: There are FIVE fish! lrrBEEJ
princess_intell: @Izandai thank you
definenull: "read" is a bit of a stretch tbf
gnyrinn: I think we're stretching it when we say that the fish *read* the Ts&Cs
Laserbeaks_Fury: 5 Fish Finger Discount
NoOne_OfConsequence: Here I have to enter my password twice any time I want to buy something on the Switch.
princess_intell: @definenull you can't prove they can't read
princess_intell: that's fishist
princess_intell: (unfunny joke, my apologies)
Wicker_Guide: Icthyism, a terror of our times
beowuuf: the devil you say!
princess_intell: i know wwwwwww is lolololol
spurius: whaaaaaaaat?
Izandai: OOOOOAAAGH!?!?!?
RockPusher: PraiseIt

princess_intell: so when's the prosecution date?
GapFiller: nalvThink since theyve almost certainly done the monkeys its obv time to move onto other parts of the animal kingdom
bytecaster: How biased are fish
RockPusher: Assuming you have low-latency feedback, human crowds are surprisingly good at collective control
Coloneljesus: left-only fish%
princess_intell: @Coloneljesus what if i don't have a fish
LordZarano: There's that company that famously has a camera pointed at a wall of lava lamps as part of their RNG
RockPusher: Goth princess now!!!

GapFiller: lrrAWW if only we got Goth Peach
Reecer6: "Walupeach," known Japanese translation for "Bad Peach,"
Raiz0k: @GapFiller ...then we'd have another entry for an example image of an "why I have a type" meme :)?
Izandai: Really Wario should be Walumario.
saucemaster5000: Plot twist Tananga is Walupeach
Decaped: They just want to arrive at Walupeboo
gualdhar: why not W.A.P.each?
LordZarano: @LordZarano Cloudflare
Laserbeaks_Fury: Nex tstep is Waluposhi
KodeMage: @LordZarano Cloudflare, a pretty important company in the modern internet
bytecaster: The internet will overflow with Fanart and collapse and that is just bad PR
GapFiller: thanks G
Lysander_salamander: I feel Walupeachi would be built like a refridgerator
Izandai: We heard him.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Wasn't there already an "evil Peach" in a Paper Mario?
Wicker_Guide: I could not hear him
KodeMage: I didn't hear him
Tiber727: @Laserbeaks_Fury There was an evil possessed Peach I believe.
Raiz0k: I didn't hear the "sorry".
Brozard: Aw man, now I want more Captain Yajima
bytecaster: How does Bowsette fit into the Mario character taxonomy?
Izandai: *grumblegrumble*Should be Peachser*grumblegrumble*
niccus: one more dimension, of course
Wicker_Guide: @bytecaster on top, standing over all
Izandai: Waleach?
Agnememnon: Palueachy
RockPusher: Beej, into the weeds? I believe it not! lrrBEEJ
CaptainSpam: "I know where you're going with this, and stahp. Just, stahp."
drcanonball: Wareach
Decaped: Did we back into Princess Beach again?
BrowneePoints: Watermelon
saucemaster5000: So... beach?
Lord_Hosk: You would have to name her sexy plum
Invitare: Apricot?
BrowneePoints: "Warumelon"
KV1NN4: Princess Pit
Ritaspirithntr: Weach?
EvilBadman: Beej is now the Devil's Wahdvodcate
KenKopin: You could change fruit maybe?
Angreed66: yeah a fruit that starts with a w
accountmadeforants: Speaking of Yatterman: Yoru no Yatterman is wild nonsense.
Izandai: demipyroLul
gualdhar: wa-biich
PMAvers: Like, say, "Daisy."
SK__Ren: oh wow thats perfect and horrible
Reecer6: to be fair, peach doesn't wear a hat with a letter on it
Tiber727: She really likes beaches, okay?
niccus: i'm a wa-lldrugs truther
MostCallMe__Tim: what's a bad fruit?
Izandai: Peachser!*grumblegrumble*
BrowneePoints: I'm standing by my Princess Watermelon joke. "Waru-melon" bad-fruit, Peach is a fruit. Nintendo send me money
Izandai: @BrowneePoints Love it, no notes.
MostCallMe__Tim: Countess Lemon?
ThorSokar: Power Wash Simulator is great, very zen
LordZarano: Warui is Japanese for bad and Japanese doesn't have a distinction between r and l. So Walupeach could just be Warupeach
Angreed66: @BrowneePoints I second this Idea. Nintendo send BrowniePoints a massive check.
saucemaster5000: clean a splatoon level
KenKopin: Would it have been easier to get the rights to the 16 Bit version?
gualdhar: the butler should also be power washed
Izandai: demipyroLul
Wicker_Guide: :/
Raiz0k: Nooooooo
richard_ermen: Can I wet-tshirt the old butler?
Lord_Hosk: US Aircraft Carriers are named after US Presidents but the next one is named after Doris Miller a Cook who earned a Medal of Honor at Pearl Harbor So what im saying is Naming conventions are made to be broken
ThorSokar: from life experience: high pressure water makes your skin... go away
Raiz0k: That's a "not-coherent t-shirt" contest.
Agnememnon: do you have to power wash the obstacle course?
Diabore: thats why she hired a butler
Izandai: @ThorSokar Life... Experience...? mattlrWoof
Nydestroyer: ammo boxes everywhere
Angreed66: @Lord_Hosk Did they out pace presidents or just want to honour the cook?
Lord_Hosk: A little of both
saucemaster5000: resident evil manor?
TheMerricat: btw - "Winston Jeeves, more commonly known simply as Winston, is Lara Croft's butler in the Croft Manor in the series' original timeline."
Laserbeaks_Fury: Peaches Casrle from Mario 64

EvilBadman: Powerwash some E1M1
Coloneljesus: Two Towers from UT
They_Are_Alyx: The Resident Evil mansion

DeM0nFiRe: LUL
KittyKibitzer: @TheMerricat who lives in the freezer XD
Lysander_salamander: Resident Evil
dividesBy0: What if you could import your minecraft home or dwarf fortress?
TheMerricat: @TheMerricat "In Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara can find a letter from her butler which recounts him being locked in the freezer by a young Lara. This is an obvious reference to the ability to lock Winston in the freezer in earlier games."
KenKopin: Portal: Power Wash Edition
drthvd3r: Good job, power wash guy.
Coloneljesus: holodeck
richard_ermen: I'd wish for "Powerwash Bikini Bottom" becaue it would be so silly
ThorSokar: Does Paul not know about Vicera Cleanup Detail?
ThorSokar: OH, ok
Lysander_salamander: that would be great
Lobo_Apache: Power Wash Sim all of Fortnite?

Wicker_Guide: Power Wash R'yleh edition?

Brozard: @ThorSokar They've played it on stream before

Coloneljesus: my minecraft dirt house
Nydestroyer: Would you need to clean the big daddies?
Brozard: @ThorSokar BUT a collab would be great
Boon_33: us capital building
ThorSokar: hahaha
bytecaster: Can you clean Rainbow Road, without falling off?

Wolfstrike_NL: Cleaning up after a Splatoon match?
mowdownjoe: The upside down castle from Castlevania SotN
KenKopin: Mario Level 1-3
Wicker_Guide: I remain shocked that Viscera Cleanup Detail hasn't had more imitators/successors
Raiz0k: @Nydestroyer Just the "angels".
EvilBadman: Temple of time?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Temple of Time?
gnyrinn: @Nydestroyer Nah, straight into the incinerator. Then crush the metal that comes out.
Agnememnon: @lord_hosk I just want to wash the huge mechs
RockPusher: Zelda themed you'd need to break pots with the washer
niccus: powerwashing Final Destination
EvilBadman: Then you have to pull the sword and reclean it 7 years later
Lysander_salamander: Doom, on Deimos.
TheMerricat: @Wicker_Guide Sometimes you do something so well that no one figures it's worth trying to beat you at it.
saucemaster5000: Level 7-1 of mario bros 3
ThorSokar: Ya, I bet the Temple of Time wasn't hermedically sealed
breadisbest1: Wayne Manor from batman
Foxmar320: The Leviathan from Destiny.
Coloneljesus: LRR Croft?

Brozard: That's what you've been doing for 7 years
Laserbeaks_Fury: ohhh, clean up Doom E1M1
greyducky: Platoon levels
TheMerricat: - article is 3 hours old. Paul is psychic.
RockPusher: Unpacking has an excellent narrative
greyducky: Splatoon
Nydestroyer: Link just have photos of smashed pots
richard_ermen: Does Powerwash Hyrule Edition also have the archenemy with "Ganonwash" and the "Ga-Washuo"?
Agnememnon: we need a like murder clean up sim that just cleans up levels from other games
niccus: that might be more House Flipper territory
Nydestroyer: The pots need to be post smashed
RockPusher goes off on a rant about how good Unpacking's narrative design is
Raiz0k: @Agnememnon That's Viscera Cleanup Detail 'though.
Oleetku: @Agnememnon they have done versions of viscera cleanup detail that are exactly that. Shadow Warrior reboot specifically
Brozard: Powerwash Luigi's Mansion after the ghosts are gone
Laserbeaks_Fury: You're just one of the bots
Laserbeaks_Fury: Cleaning
LordZarano: I was gonna say the gMod Construct level, since I spent so much time there. But I think I actually DID that. Cover it blood and bulletholes and gibbs and then clean it all up
niccus: i think i saw hyrule castle's zillow entry yesterday
tandilense: Some Hitman level after the killkings
Nydestroyer: wait... supermario sunshine is powerwash simulator
Izandai: demipyroLul
RockPusher: Pow-LRR-wash Simulator
Wicker_Guide: I still like Adam's idea from a Dark Pictures screen where you play the poor technician who has to fix and prepare all the traps in a /Zelda style trap dungeon
KenKopin: April 1st DLC - Pong, but the paddle is a city block long.
richard_ermen: Honestly, we just want a Powerwash Level Desginer tool.
richard_ermen: Powerwash the moonbase.
Brozard: Powerwash all the Hitman levels
laundreydhull: frustrated, missed the Sonic 30th joke segment?
TheMerricat: @Agnememnon On top of official cross overs, VCD has a workshop and fans have recreated other game levels, including doom levels for it.
niccus: i hope one day we see a powerwash moonbase walkthrough for lrl
KenKopin: Powerwash Minecraft just melting all the dirt houses.
RockPusher: Boat!
cuttlefishman: These are official content or mods?
Ravynn: Official content
RockPusher: Official
Wicker_Guide: official content
TacitusVigil: Can we mod Beej into Stardew Valley?
ThorSokar: You CAN pet the dog!
Angreed66: Yeah that's been in for well over a year
Raiz0k: That's not amazing, that's sociopathic :p .
ThorSokar: Late game 50k is a joke
RockPusher: Late game, not so much
TacitusVigil: But then you have all the time to pet your own animal?
MostCallMe__Tim: you only need 1 per building

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Friday Night Paper Fight (The LRR crew plays Magic the Gathering! This week we draft Dominaria Remastered! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Fri 05:00 PM PST (1:35 from now).
Ritaspirithntr: It doesn’t improve friendship, but friendship won’t decrease
TheMerricat: and then stardew valley became a factory farm simulator...
Izandai: Wizard
ThorSokar: (Auto peters exist for cows, they're huge brush things that look like they came from a car wash)
TacitusVigil: uuuuuuuuh
RockPusher: Your Exes Memory
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Stardewctorio?
Wicker_Guide: THe One More Day theory of marraige
princess_intell: UUUUUMMMMM
Izandai: Also the memories of everyone in the town.
RockPusher: You divorce they be mad at you
cuttlefishman: and turn children into birds
RockPusher: so you wipe their memory
Angreed66: There is both a witch and wizard
RockPusher: The kids, turn into doves I think?
TacitusVigil: Isn't that just Spider-Man One More Day?
goombalax: dr stranges divorce service
KenKopin: Divorce Note?
apocalyptic_warlock: LUL
definenull: ^
Izandai: huh
Angreed66: More ethical
Brozard: lrrSPOOP
apocalyptic_warlock: that's horrifying
Izandai: mattlrWoof
Wicker_Guide: immaculate conception *blows paper trumpet*
PMAvers: Insert Drakengard 3 joke here.
RockPusher: I can't remember if plain divorce gets rid of the kids
Brozard: Why not just Bioshock Infinite jump timelines or something
bytecaster: Sometimes magic is easier to implement than keeping track of all the children
FuzBubbles: You can only wipe an ex’s mind, not a spouse.
Wicker_Guide: Undertale vibe intensifies
FuzBubbles: And it’s a separate spell to turn your kids into doves.
FuzBubbles: So you can be a single parent.
ThorSokar: @niccus Yep! that's the thing
Angreed66: Stardew valley has magic and monster realism isn't not that high a priority
Raiz0k: Is there an ice bath anywhere?
Angreed66: Far cheaper that irl methods
Wicker_Guide: If you weren't in a video game nothing about the Wizard is kosher
ogundiety: Honestly, WoW added free gender swapping not too long ago, which was actually a surprisingly good move
TacitusVigil: And that's how Heather ended up single and with lots of birds. Kappa
FuzBubbles: No ice bath, but a sauna.
ThorSokar: eh, that Wizzard is kinda shady in the first place
bytecaster: How hard could it be? It's just magic
josh___something: Double wide Gates!!!
Raiz0k: @ogundiety What scandal did they cover up that with?
bytecaster: I mean, remember when Bees where the crazy new update in Minecraft.
KharadBanar: I started playing after that update and the sploosh is the only fish bite sound that makes sense to me
RockPusher: escher3BEE escher3BEE escher3ANGRY escher3BEE
ogundiety: @ogundiety I think this one specifically was when they wanted to show that they were listening to women/trans people, briefly, before going back to ignoring them/being horrible
Raiz0k: @ogundiety Ah, business as usual.
bytecaster: How could they have made it worse?
Wicker_Guide: Pay-to-Win item that wasn't as winning as implied
Raiz0k: "Best Value!"
Raiz0k: LOL
ThorSokar: oh, so it's a trick
josh___something: significantly less good
ogundiety: @ogundiety Yup, was just a brief window of 'hey, this is really good thing' on their general horrible stuff.
josh___something: BAHAHAHAHA
ThorSokar: I think Beej is underestimating how evil marketing is
josh___something: Yeah, "Lost in translation" type thing
bytecaster: And it wasn't even a waifu jpeg, why would you pay real money for that :P
TheMerricat: More to the point programmers absolutely make that sort of mistake all the time you don't keep that sort of mistake in the game after you discover it
Wicker_Guide: I mean, this is the same company that had literally incorrect information in the Diablo II strategy guide
Izandai: This smells of a dev oversight. Either whoever wrote the item description just got it wrong, or it used to be based off max HP but it got changed and they missed updating the description.
Raiz0k: @ogundiety Even a broken bigot is right some times per year.
Izandai: Yeah or they just implemented it wrong.
bytecaster: "Does more damage? Ship it!
Raiz0k: Absolutely, multiplier at the wrong place.
Wicker_Guide: Yeah, or they had both versions in testing and somebody accidentally promoted the wrong code at some point
Izandai: Yeah, not the move, Blizzard.
bytecaster: But what if you allow people to buy too much power, think of the balance of the Skinner box
drcthulu: Blizzard doesn't believe in refunding money
LordZarano: Maybe they tested it and found that it totally broke the game balance if it was max
bytecaster: But I thought kids were small humans that wizards turn into doves :P
josh___something: Oh...
Izandai: demipyroLul
josh___something: HAH
Wicker_Guide: facepalm
LordZarano: jlrrFacepalm
virre_: Oh no..
mowdownjoe: lrrWOW
KittyKibitzer: oh sims team you amuse me
bytecaster: Is the next kit "Raid Shadow Legends" themed?
EvilBadman: Pumbob's aho
EvilBadman: ahoy*
Juliamon: did any podcasts *not* drop them after the HP collab?
josh___something: Ahh, the "Too real" kit
Foxmar320: Ive seen what Sims modders make and a lot of it is clutter items.
Foxmar320: They love clutter stuff
emberBecky: clutter as decor in the game is kind of nice for immersion but I don't want to pay specifically for it >.>
EvilBadman: Have your sims' house look like a fallout dungeon
KittyKibitzer: Simers love clutter
RockPusher: Live. Laugh. Poop
niccus: i think if i learned anything from Unpacking, it's that anything can become bathroom clutter
Foxmar320: Yeah magazines, bottles boxes
Raiz0k: @niccus Also, anything can break a window.
TheMerricat: @foxmar320 I was going to ask I stopped following The Sims after number 3 but I felt like 90% of the modded stuff that I saw was either clutter or other static deco stuff to shove in your house
TacitusVigil: "Beej, why does our credit card statement say "Digital Underwar" on it this month?"
electric_claire: The base game has barely anything in it.
goombalax: I was only half listening and I thought this story was about the Build-a-bear lingere collection
Foxmar320: @TheMerricat Famouse YouTubers James Turner does Sims 4 builds and the dude loves clutter items
TacitusVigil: @goombalax What? No. What? No.
BrowneePoints: at first glance the Toadstool Cafe looks the exact same as the Japanese one
bytecaster: @TacitusVigil Does the Digital Underwar happen in the Dark Net?
GapFiller: 17/02/2023 according to Google
GapFiller: less than a month from now
TacitusVigil: @bytecaster Wherever you want, I won't kink shame.
GapFiller: boo
BusTed: womp womp
Reecer6: ah. grocery store cupcake
KV1NN4: uh oh
Diabore: a (cup)cake
RonaldMcDownload: wayyy too much frosting
TacitusVigil: Can we make that next TTSF?
josh___something: Cake /= cupcake
EvilBadman: this is the cake from the "Peach I made you a cake it is dogshit" meme
Raiz0k: A Capitalist Upgrade Project cake.
GapFiller: TacitusVigil making a better cupcake than this is legit a TTSF waiting to happen
SK__Ren: Real Cake vs Cup Cake
Angreed66: Now the question is do they cost the same.
SmashTCG: that would be Rad
accountmadeforants: That would require creativity and care
SmashTCG: I would dissapointed if it didnt turn me into peach though

Sogheim: Sam's Club brand Peach's Cake
TacitusVigil: @Angreed66 Don't be silly...the cupcake is much more expensive.
niccus: let them eat the shittier cake
ForOhForError: that's how you get everyone putting cake on their head tho
princess_intell: i can feel how sweet that frosting is from here
laundreydhull: looks more like a Kirby mushroom
mowdownjoe: Google did a good job with the shirt
Coloneljesus: unlocked controller doe
mowdownjoe: *shut down
TheMerricat: so the controllers are also dead wood
accountmadeforants: Yeah, the controller was super interesting
bytecaster: Gotta achieve "negative" latency somehow, right?
Raiz0k: xD
accountmadeforants: To be clear, it already worked wired.
Coloneljesus: some drone controllers are wifi
dividesBy0: Time for someone to write a stadia controller server emulator I suppose.
RockPusher: Removing latency by adding Wi-Fi™ is an oxymoron to me :D
CaptainSpam: Well... the WiiU game pad wasn't strictly Bluetooth...
Coloneljesus: @RockPusher no, the removal of the hop over the home router is removing latency
niccus: the firmware update is live
KharadBanar: Bluetooth and WiFi use the same frequency band anyways

accountmadeforants: If you use the BT firmware, the wi-fi part of it is (ostensibly) disabled
bytecaster: That is very nice to hear, so much less e-waste
Angreed66: I'm guessing it was disabled to prevent higher latency accidents
Coloneljesus: @KharadBanar yup, just the software is different
niccus: it disables wifi, yeah. but nothing else takes wifi controller anyways
PMAvers: Ian leans his head in. "A wi-fi enabled button, you say."

electric_claire: You would have to write software for the controller for that to work though
Ravynn: You already can kind of 'jailbreak' a stadia that way to make it communicate with servers
SmashTCG: I was planning on visiting nintendo world, but now i feel dissapointed
Coloneljesus: @electric_claire harder things have been done
SmashTCG: guess i gotta go to Japan
TheMerricat: @niccus No consoles currently use Wi-Fi for their controllers but I could see someone rolling any number of hack projects using a controller that sends out Wi-Fi.
princess_intell: i could see these being sought-after collectibles in a few decades
electric_claire: @Coloneljesus It's not necessarily possible to load software on it though
Ravynn: As a game dev, I'm actually interested in on-loading a game demo and running it directly connected that way rather than needing to haul around a console to conventions to demo my games.
bytecaster: Ian, messing with buttons, unheard of
accountmadeforants: Use the controller to control both the bus and the lights!
princess_intell: oh no ian's going to get Ideas
TheMerricat: oh Lord remote desert bus using in stadia controllers
niccus: it sounds good but then you have two camera operators with opposite axis inversion preferences
bytecaster: DCBC Direct Cloud Bus Control
Izandai: YES
laundreydhull: Desert Bus has Stadia controls!?
EvilBadman: Konami code for a Random Dance PArty
mowdownjoe: Heather...
LordZarano: Accelerate, Brake, Open Door, Honk

GapFiller: Beej is the protag of a Kurt Vonnegut novel
Lord_Hosk: Heather, you are going to get so many 30th anniversary gifts
goombalax: ugh can't get them to canada, heartbreaking
