EricTheOrange: Slowly strip mining and walling off my caverns in Dwarf Fortress in the background, while the game runs at like 1 turn a second.
beowuuf: i like crowns?
matthaus_c: I like royales with cheese
TheMerricat: @erictheorange you know the best way to recover FPS in dwarf fortress right? FUN.
TheAinMAP: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW MrDestructoid
Juliamon: oops
SnackPak_: lrrFINE
TheAinMAP: lrrFINE
TheMerricat: well we had music and intro music and now we have none. truly a sad day chat we've lost it all
GhostValv: hi
EricTheOrange: @TheMerricat if I have fun I'll lose dwarfs and I need them to do the mining
AussieBrainDoc: hello!
TheAinMAP: Hello lrrCORI lrrCAMERON
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah, something seemed off more than just being off mic
Mangledpixel: gotta train yourself to swallow that mic
3 raiders from Caffine1138 have joined!
Juliamon: Your voice has just zero carry
TheMerricat: remember chat never point a mic at someone that you don't want to record
Darleysam: maybe Tesla self-driving AI knows something we don't
ghyllnox: I learned how to project in choir, but I don't suppose you'd get into that if you're not into it already
SnackPak_: that's an oofa from me
GhostValv: that's nice
TheMerricat: can I have your parents?
Brozard: He's in his lane, thriving
Caffine1138: I feel that in my soul. enforced socialization is alot
passwordlost_hereiam: Like a sickly victorian child
matthaus_c: may the best wizard win
matthaus_c: wait no, best wizard always wins, that's the phrase
ghyllnox: A game of tank juggling
comrade_cards: are we shooting them with our words?
Despoiler98: mruuDead mruuDead mruuDead helis on fire yo
matthaus_c: always dropping in tomato town
Brozard: Man's gaming!
matthaus_c: SKILL
Despoiler98: HES A GAMER
solemn_storm: POGCRAZY
kerryg137: Cam is too powerful for mere mortals
matthaus_c: I love how pliant the wheels are
Despoiler98: HES UNHINGED
CataclysmicReverb: 'elo to you too
EricTheOrange: Do the diferent colors of the tanks mean anything?
EricTheOrange: numbers go up
matthaus_c: good brain chemicals go brrrr
bojuka_pog: So many shiny bits
SnackPak_: everyone loves number go up
ghyllnox: Did this used to be a mobile game? It looks very mobile-compatible
EricTheOrange: on one hand free to play, on the other hand FTP garbage. I guess thats just the price of multiplayer gaming these days
matthaus_c: the schmoves!
DoodlestheGreat: Faster, Cameron! KILL KILL
matthaus_c: all my channel points on crazychurro
TheMerricat: @ghyllnox a quick Google suggests that it's pretty much available on everything but consoles at the moment
CataclysmicReverb: Need to get the drill to extraction to keep it
Invitare: so when do you stop playing against AIs in this one? Kappa
matthaus_c: One True Power
Darleysam: yeah, you know me
cogito_ErgoSam: one time password
matthaus_c: I like to think that's just actually Julian Casablancas

Mangledpixel: often very pick-up-and-playable
Alness49: Fast paced, simple to pick up?
BusTed: gaming
Charlymandias: This man be gaming
Brozard: I always associated "arcade-y" with leaderboards, too
LurkerSpine: also usually not realistic physics
niccus: it's arcadey when it's an action roguelike
Mangledpixel: can also just mean 'resembles traditional 70s/80s arcade games'
adelius3: right. no talent trees in arcade games
LordZarano: Arcade racers
Brozard: So pinball machines and score-based levels like Donkey Kong and Pac Man
PMAvers: Burnout versus Gran Turismo
matthaus_c: simple actions with high potential for combinations seems like part of it?
EricTheOrange: Heres a question, how much of "nintendo hard" just came from quarter sucking arcade games, and how much of it came from developers trying to make the game difficult to complete so people would get their "moneys worth".
niccus: some of that, and also a more-significant-in-retrospect lack of gaming literacy
matthaus_c: in PUBG, School
GhostValv: the tomato town :)
Manae: Is there a way to do a low-damage shot for jumping? It seems like Cam hurts himself when he does it, but this guy is jumping around like crazy for free
Martin_FcG: That shield seems good.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Lode Runner?
GhostValv: yeah...
adelius3: cam you are kinda great at this
niccus: going back to the times when coyote time didn't exist is hell
adelius3: chatters curse
BusTed: Clearly.
PMAvers: Karma? Hubris.
kerryg137: wheelerHub wheelerGreed
corefluxx: No, not carma... tankma
BloodnBullets: what is this beautiful madness?
corefluxx: I think those are called midway games
aitsu100: the milk bottle baseball toss
Gadora: pinball machines?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Thos air rifles galleries were the first FPS
Kibbik: Pinball machines
EricTheOrange: well theirs the thing that if you just memorize the game you can complete Contra in like half an hour. Not even like speedrunning that just how long it takes to complete. So if you spend the equivalent of like 150 USD on a game and beat it in half an hour I can understand you being upset.
matthaus_c: that skin is pretty miraculous
niccus: the original fighting game is going to the park, backseating someone playing chess, taking your turn, and then getting your ass handed to you
DoodlestheGreat: Pinball. I remember the old arcades pre-video era. There were some interesting things done mechanically.
SnackPak_: dang
TheMerricat: I get the impression most of these rounds are going to end with someone falling in the water as the last man standing.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Keep. Summer. Sfae.
KeytarCat: The last lady bugging
Mangledpixel: toon ooks
matthaus_c: oh boy what a level
1 raiders from redfoce881 have joined!
redfoce881: nice
matthaus_c: do not eat the spicy banana candy, got it
KillThreeRats: So close.
Kelderan: Top 10
matthaus_c: the volley weapons seem -busted-
adelius3: why is the helicopter on fire
DoodlestheGreat: Would it be fair to say that microtransactions are the modern equivalent of the arcade quarter munchers of the past?
LathosTiran: a fool with a tank
TheMerricat: @doodlesthegreat I'd argue quarter munchers were the progenitors of them but I don't know if they are actually equivalent.
CataclysmicReverb: @DoodlestheGreat Time Gates feel a bit closer, but I wouldn't consider that inaccurate
matthaus_c: GAMING
GhostValv: :O
Juliamon: Blind shot!
nate_mnemonic: Let's get down and dirty with some red hot talking simulator action

aitsu100: top 2
silenceaux: really cool jousting match though
TinkerTezz: that was a sick round
matthaus_c: and we got to have the best part of a battle royale game, the waffling and gathering resources away from everyone in the early game
DoodlestheGreat: Best score so far today.
CanPlayGames: CRAB
matthaus_c: claws up!
KeytarCat: Claws up, Guardian
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh no, BETA!
PotatoWraiths: LMAO
DoodlestheGreat: LUL

corefluxx: Cheer100
Gekyouryuu: apparently Raytheon's background checks now ask friends of applicants if they play War Thunder
GhostValv: aren't they super customizable
Serivus: they probably ask what your screen name is, so they can look at your posts
matthaus_c: playing War Thunder might not be a dealbreaker, they might use you for espionage :p
Gekyouryuu: I also love how a lot of the leaked documents make the vehicles in question WORSE
Serivus: it's probably not a problem if you play War Thunder. It's a problem if you have hundreds of posts arguing with people
jaqofspades: If you say yes, you might just be required to join a very long training meeting about proper document release processes.
TheMerricat: Yeah I was going to ask, were they asking if you played War of Thunder to determine if you were going to leak their documents or to determine how dedicated you were to military tech :D
Serivus: and @jaqofspades comment
jaqofspades: And also that the proper document release process is just never put it on a forum.
matthaus_c: I wish part of my job description was just reading through pages of nerds arguing over War Thunder, skimming for classified information
SnackPak_: I think they do ask for social media accounts
TheMerricat: Joke would be on them, I have two :P
Serivus: I mean, probably
iris_of_ether: I can't comment directly due to lack of knowledge, but I have friends who have gotten security clearance for various jobs (software, mechanical), and they will dead-ass send people to interview the folks you list as character contacts
jaqofspades: I can tell you that not all defense industry companies ask for your social media info but they 100% track everything on their networks so if you log in on their network, they have your social media info.
iris_of_ether: ^^^^^^
matthaus_c: in the year 30XX we no longer watch YouTube, everything has moved to Pornhub
notthepenguins: @iris_of_ether yep, that's who asked the questions in those situations
Gekyouryuu: 7 times this year alone
Gekyouryuu: 3 or 4 in a week
Mushbie: also the ARAAM and F-15E missiles
accountmadeforants: The F16 one wasn't secret, I believe, just wasn't allowed to be exported? Still, though, it KEEPS. HAPPENING.
notthepenguins: no, F-15E, F-16, and MIG-29
notthepenguins: this week
jaqofspades: I can't speak for Raytheon specifically though.
iris_of_ether: @notthepenguins Fair enough! I was lurking and missed the chat convos:)
TinkerTezz: 'This week' as it's Tuesday lol
notthepenguins: poor war thunder devs having to flip the "days since federal crimes on our forums" sign over
ghyllnox: Secret outside the dept at least
matthaus_c: I've seen some ungodly memes about the F-15's "afterbussy"
Mushbie: @matthaus_c yeeeeess
Gekyouryuu: oh, off topic, if y'all haven't already, is Ultrakill on the list of games you might check out sometime?
jaqofspades: I think about that afterbussy at night sometimes. It's hot.
AzureishDragoon: These tank games are hard for me, because they make me long for the days when all I had to worry about was Scorched Earth 2000 in computer class.
Mushbie: Personally I prefer the F-15J because of Hisone to Maso-tan
roastbeefsandwitch: @AzureishDragoon oh, Scorched Earth. So dang fun
TinkerTezz: they cleaned
GhostValv: the newtype special
SagaMonstrum: Finally awake to catch one of these live!
SagaMonstrum: I see we're no longer experiencing the horror that is Space
KeytarCat: Glad to have you!
EricTheOrange: What was the progenitor of "artillery" games like this?
matthaus_c: or play during class
TinkerTezz: pocket tanks vibes for sure
offbeatwitch: i definitely played a ton of flash games in the graphiccs lab
matthaus_c: is the beach ball lethal
SagaMonstrum: I was one of the occasionally popular kids for bringing games like this on a USB to play on the classroom computer
SnowBunSarah: Pretend what didn't happen. I just saw an extraordinarily long loading screen
EricTheOrange: I know their was text based games where it said, "you are here, target is here" and you just put in angel of artillery to try and hit your target.
SagaMonstrum: Games like this one and then uhh.. Little Fighter 1 & 2 I think?
iris_of_ether: Middle school, after school during Science Olympiad practices: Wolfenstein and the After Dark trivia game

GiveAQuestion: good night y'all, have a lovely stream
DoodlestheGreat: When I was in high school, we played "Star Trek" on two different systems: The TRS-80, and a mainframe system the L.A. School District ran... which you communicated with by TELETYPE.
gsyhiap: @EricTheOrange Scorched Earth is the earliest one I can think of
theghostwiththemost: hey it works
jaqofspades: We played the original worms when the teacher wasn't looking in computer class.
DoodlestheGreat: Refresh rate on the teletype was a tad crappy. Like 30 seconds per frame...
Juliamon: I only ever played turn-based ones like Gunbound
SagaMonstrum: I do love that they let you drive on any surface, i think that was a good choice
iris_of_ether: Also the person who brought in the transfer cable for the TI-85 calculator in high school so we could load games on them = hero
jaqofspades: Also a bridge building game in our CAD lab that we got away with if our grades were high enough.
EricTheOrange: @gsyhiap naw that had graphics, this game style predates graphics
Angreed66: cowards live
matthaus_c: want that victory royale
gsyhiap: @EricTheOrange At that point it's basically battleships though
iris_of_ether: In college, my friend spent half the time in electronics labs playing Asteroids, because it's built into some oscilloscopes
accountmadeforants: I love the Flash game aesthetic of all this.
matthaus_c: and if you work really hard on your tanksona, you too can be a card carrying tankie
ghyllnox: For sure
LurkerSpine: Godot does in fact export to html
EricTheOrange: Godot, waiting for
MercurialVox: love Go Dot
accountmadeforants: Get out spooky ghost! lrrSPOOPY
McGurganatorZX: time to git gud or rocketjump trying
EricTheOrange: @gsyhiap Yeah I believe it evolved out of military tech for artillery trajectory calculation.
gsyhiap: @EricTheOrange makes sense
jaqofspades: HAY!
BusTed: haaay
Vanbael: Hay there!
TimeToFry: Sweet sweet hay
accountmadeforants: Haaaaay yoooouuuu guuuuuyyyyys
PMAvers: Hay now, you're a barn star. Get your hay on.
gsyhiap: it's for horses, as I understand it
matthaus_c: @PMAvers go neigh
accountmadeforants: Biological warfare
ghyllnox: lmao
iris_of_ether: Can't Tank Horses Club
notthepenguins: F
MrTulip: unfortunate
TimeToFry: Seaking? Like the pokemon?
EricTheOrange: Is stream occasionally freezing for anyone else or is that on my side?
accountmadeforants: @EricTheOrange Your side, I think
Juliamon: EricTheOrange Twitch issue I think, Trick was having it during MoC
LathosTiran: fine here
RaklarLS: that menu feels very mobile-y
EricTheOrange: K, thanks. may be my potatoe internet or the fact that I'm also playing DF.
matthaus_c: Limbic System loves playing this
accountmadeforants: Primordial gaming with just the right application of modern technology
kerryg137: James is coming for you if you keep using his IP
iris_of_ether: Also in college, we had an assignment in Signals to build a circuit that filtered a given frequency of noise out of an audio file of your choice. A friend thought it would be a good idea to play the Bubble Bobble music, with like a 2khz tone in it, for like an hour straight while debugging, in a shared lab
accountmadeforants: @iris_of_ether Your friend had the right idea, something was gonna stop that noise, even if it wasn't their circuit :p
iris_of_ether: So anyway my eye twitches when anyone mentions that game now :D
matthaus_c: the mind games
iris_of_ether: @accountmadeforants indeed :D
EricTheOrange: we have so many coins. what do coins do?
matthaus_c: coins buy pretty tank accessories
BusTed: Counter!
accountmadeforants: Oh wow

accountmadeforants: Joecoo1 realized they were never hitting Guest1734 from a distance, so they had to get in close
BloodnBullets: high ground and big gun
EricTheOrange: For not having a username some of these people have some fancy tanks
CanPlayGames: Youre not my mom
satyropodobny: Should have headed teachings of mighty Mr. Piccolo
Juliamon: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer means break time for YOU, so unclench, get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet if you need to. Don't forget to wash your hands!
iris_of_ether: Cameron why are you so correct benginCry
matthaus_c: cycle your legs, stretch your fluids, don't let your tank hit the water
kerryg137: @matthaus_c
kerryg137: oops
iris_of_ether: WTB one lower spinal disc that ain't shitty

Juliamon: Good job!
Sky_Kast: good for you
matthaus_c: that's great!
iris_of_ether: Go you!
gsyhiap: @princess_intell miiliClap
princess_intell: the lab orders were *right* about to expire, but i sure did do it
matthaus_c: benginTD
Sky_Kast: velvet10Hi
kerryg137: @princess_intell Hell yeah!
Juliamon: ughh I gotta get some labs done in like, a week or so
princess_intell: ugh they're the worst
TheMerricat: @princess_intell seabatClap you are way ahead of me, I'm still trying to get up the nerve to schedule an eye appointment that I should have taken care of last year.
princess_intell: for those who haven't had the pleasure, they put a needle in your arm and you get to watch the blood flow out of you and into small, clear test tubes
princess_intell: it
princess_intell: it's not fun
Juliamon: you don't *have* to, but some people like to
Juliamon: I make a point of not looking, but my nana was totally into it
Juliamon: she was a weird old lady tho
princess_intell: i do want to look away, but it's like a car crash?
princess_intell: in this scenario, everything is going right, but i still can't tear my eyes away
CataclysmicReverb: I've seen tanks with legs
LurkerSpine: every tread is a foot though
accountmadeforants: Not supposed to, or not allowed to? :p
OwlStarVera: I'm weird, I don't mind blood work at all. I've freaked out several lab techs
SnowBunSarah: @LurkerSpine But a foot is not a leg
princess_intell: @TheMerricat i believe in you!
matthaus_c: the controller skins are cute, with the cables as the shooty bits
CataclysmicReverb: Tachikomas
EricTheOrange: tachikoma?
SajuukSjet: tachikoma!
jaqofspades: Spider Tanks
TheMerricat: "Think tank is a slang term used to describe a robotic weapons platform that makes use of artificial intelligence to enhance its abilities. Most of the think tanks portrayed in Ghost in the Shell (manga, films, and series), along with other machinery, (e.g. attack helicopters such as the Jigabachi AV) are developed and manufactured by a fictional company named Kenbishi Industries."
princess_intell: fun fact, now that i'm an adult my first response to getting blood taken is to start swearing profusely
matthaus_c: time to get carried
QuixoticScrivener: Not really rogue, dude put his brain in it.
princess_intell: not *at* anyone, just out loud in general
QuixoticScrivener: Umm, spoilers for decades old show.
TimeToFry: Just like Destiny!
princess_intell: are they driving on a cookie?
noSmokeFire: damn that complex sure does standalone
princess_intell: that is decades, plural
Nigouki: 2003, I remember cuz it was the first anime I've ever torrented
TheMerricat: 2004 was when GiTS:SAC started airing...
jaqofspades: They released Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 in 2022.
matthaus_c: so, about those tachikoma
EricTheOrange: the original GitS manga was like what (googles) 1989
CavemanKellen: tdm?
Tehbeard: wow, the tanks flash game of my college years got a glowup...
princess_intell: season 1 aired 2002
SajuukSjet: SAC:2045
TheMerricat: whoops, 2004 was 2nd gig, @Nigouki is correct that the first one came out 2003
CaptainSpam: Ooo, it's a first-to-20 match.
princess_intell: congrats, all of you are old
Juliamon: There's a new SAC but maybe pretend it didn't
noSmokeFire: the wikipedia page of dorian grey
princess_intell: the gray hair says otherwise :p
Robot_Bones: Did they figure out whose Ghost it was?
jaqofspades: It has been so long since I last watched any Ghost in the Shell property.
SnowBunSarah: You can edit wikipedia, but you can't edit the truth!
DrasonSpike: carful Cam, people might make you 4 years old
SajuukSjet: SAC:2045 seems to be marmite
notthepenguins: Someone in a discord I'm on referred to Monster as "this really old anime they found" last week and I crumbled to dust
accountmadeforants: I've seen a recent trend of "censoring" spiders by using Spider-Man instead and I feel like that would vastly improve this game. :p
jaqofspades: @SajuukSjet Good in small amounts with butter on toast?
TheMerricat: I feel like the changes they made to the Major in the post SAC era didn't really help the series much.
SajuukSjet: jaqofspades: either you really like it or don't :P
princess_intell: tbf, people born AFTER season 1 aired can now drive cars and go to college
EricTheOrange: so how does this mode work? most kills untill time runs out?
princess_intell: they can't drink till next year in the US, but they can drink in canada
accountmadeforants: @notthepenguins *screams as he disappears into the void*
matthaus_c: the team lost, but -we- got the kill
notthepenguins: @notthepenguins I know right???
betweenmyself: Oooooh! riffGasp Ohhhh… BibleThump
princess_intell: i tried watching the 70s show remake and came up with a drinking game
princess_intell: take a shot every time a character says something unspeakably lame and try not to die in the first 5 minutes
EricTheOrange: yeah it's weird to think that people born after I graduated highschool are themselves graduated from highschool
DrasonSpike: @princess_intell sounds like the original
princess_intell: yes but i was a teenager when i watched the original and remember it as being funnier
ElektroTal: wait, is this scorch?
AussieBrainDoc: an appropriate amount
princess_intell: ook ook ook
spiffinn: hello shivam
Robot_Bones: Get this man some soft cheese and honey
ElektroTal: sonic boom
Spanked42: Is this world of tanks?
NotCainNorAbel: you make that sound like it isn't already a thing
Alahmnat: off-week stream highlights ideas
fastlane250: or worse/better, a ytpmv
TimeToFry: Oh hey that IS Merricat
Robot_Bones: Coming to next year's highlight reel
Nigouki: that's goin to be the 10 years of streaming highlights
EricTheOrange: WoT wishes it was this awesome
ElektroTal: i'm old so my references are scorch and worms, lol
PlantOnTwitch: so this is real time worms?
Sky_Kast: hmm not worms
TimeToFry: So this is that game that fans kept leaking classified documents for? Neat
Spanked42: I honestly know nothing about World of Tanks. But I know too much about War Thunder considering I've never played.
OwlStarVera: Ooh War Thunder? Have any interesting secrets to share?
princess_intell: does this qualify as can-con then?
ElektroTal: should i buy it and join your team
Sky_Kast: shouBan shouHype shouBan
EricTheOrange: War Thunder is just World or Tanks for rivet counters.
Nigouki: World of Warship was really fun during closed beta, but now it's been years of full release and constant unbalancable additions
Sky_Kast: lul 3 bucks though
Sky_Kast: is that really an investment
accountmadeforants: Are you able to commit to a schedule and aim for the world cup??
ElektroTal: i mean, it's three bucks. i've paid more for candy
notthepenguins: the subs and t10 ships were the last straw for a lot of people
princess_intell: it's either world of warships or RAID
xXAYAYAXx: lrrFINE midnig380Slappies midnig380NodDog FortOne
EricTheOrange: I wish I got more world of warships adds and less hero wars adds. i have grown to HATE hero wars despite never playing it.
TimeToFry: I want a cup of that tank's piss!
accountmadeforants: I'm also never sure when some of the people I follow say they play World of Tanks/Warships when they advertise it. Because those seem like the kinda games that would pay people to say that, but also the people I follow are the kinda nerds who would play those games.
princess_intell: so "become reddit" got it
SnackPak_: 9/10
RaklarLS: amen
iris_of_ether: lrrHORN
princess_intell: r u ok cam
satyropodobny: He be speaking tounges

Sky_Kast: is princess bride over now LUL
SnowBunSarah: Green just casually murdering your entire team
TheAinMAP: Whoops.
Brozard: I doesn't matter if I don't win, so long as you lose
MatthewDennisMTG: that was some Tank Wick stuff
goombalax: An Pissant
princess_intell: it means in passing in french
Martin_FcG: Chess
ChrisGMiller: Yeah Un Peasant
Mysticman89: time to do weird things with a pawn
SnowBunSarah: Wow, the hitbox on that pawn is nonsense
roastbeefsandwitch: Google "square chess" - a 4 player variant. seems interesting.
fir3wolfhhmd: en passant?
accountmadeforants: Betrayal at Krondor taught me that En Passant is cheating
mountaindudepdx: didn't magnus lose to an en passant recently?
princess_intell: @roastbeefsandwitch so.... chess commander?
McGurganatorZX: Pawn got a wackier hitbox than MvC2 Sentinel geez
EricTheOrange: soft underbelly
margieargie: Ah, googled en passant, I guess they added that to the game after the last time I played Kappa
MatthewDennisMTG: the underside of a tank? that's the Rogal Dorn
NotCainNorAbel: bottom kisser
accountmadeforants: Tank Taint, Taink.
epicduece: in the undercarriage?
Mysticman89: tanks are mobius strips
SnowBunSarah: @Mysticman89 I'm sure Mobius does, but I'm not sure how that helps us kill tanks
MatthewDennisMTG: it's nice how easy it is to get into another match relatively quickly
princess_intell: according to fallout boy, fame < infamy
TheMerricat: @MatthewDennisMTG yeah, I was just spaming rejoin as soon as I died while I was playing, this is a nice little time waster.
fir3wolfhhmd: I kinda feel proud knowinung what en passant means in chess...
princess_intell: life with anxiety sure is great!!
kusinohki: hi all! random chess word: zuhgzwang (probably spelled that wrong)
TheMerricat: LOL
accountmadeforants: There's also extremely little time between matches. ROUNDS does this super well, too.
fir3wolfhhmd: @kusinohki Zugzwang.
SnowBunSarah: You know, someone other than chat
Two_Hats: Sorry, kind of random but does anyone know the humble code for lrr?
TheMerricat: !humble
LRRbot: LRR is a Humble Partner! Go to and LRR will get a cut of any purchase you make at Humble.
Two_Hats: Thank you!
fir3wolfhhmd: meaning making someone make a bad move by threatening the king and there is only one possible choice -which results in the loss of a valuable piece
princess_intell: you know, i like to think of LRR as making a lot of "intellectual comedy" but then i remember the crapshot where beej yells "BUHTSECKS HONDA" a whole bunch
TheMerricat: @princess_intell They aren't exclusive :D
SnackPak_: nice escape
princess_intell: sure aren't!
8 raiders from Weslyphon have joined!
princess_intell: not a criticism either
fir3wolfhhmd: been like 15 years since I was in a chessclub, though
TheMerricat: + trophies cam! +
EricTheOrange: so fletch
MatthewDennisMTG: inting?
EricTheOrange: smurfing?
fir3wolfhhmd: inting
kusinohki: @fir3wolfnhmd I learned it as german for "compulsion to move" basically, all your pieces are where you want them, but it's your turn and you have to make a move, hurting your position...
SnackPak_: is that smurfing?
drcthulu: "tanking" your elo
EricTheOrange: at least that's what they called it in old starcraft.
Mysticman89: inting so you can smurf essentially
PMAvers: Smurfing is specifically buying a new account to play against new players again.
MatthewDennisMTG: I think it's like, "intentionally feeding" - inting
fir3wolfhhmd: smurfing is playing below your elo
princess_intell: wasn't sabatoge also a rap song
princess_intell: like decades ago
Spluuga: beastie boys
TheMerricat: Though intentionally feeding is more of a 'giving the other team an advantage because you are a griefer...'
EricTheOrange: in old starcraft it was called smurfing if you made a new account just to beat up low skill players.
PMAvers: Popularized back in Warcraft 2: BNE days by one PapaSmurf and their teammate Smurfette.
TehAmelie: i hear it was actually made up by the old, old guard the built the Warcraft 2 multiplayer mod and community
MatthewDennisMTG: yeah Merricat's right, I think inting is generally more used for people griefing in a specific game, not necessarily intentionally losing multiple to tank elo
princess_intell: i've been thinking about high school lately because reasons and trying to imagine all of our teenage selves meeting each other
TehAmelie: so this game looks hilarious
TheMerricat: Just think chat, we now have had online game play long enough for terms like smurfing to have been around so long that there are folk using them who weren't born when they were made....
EricTheOrange: @PMAvers oh it's from WC2, I only ever heard about it in assciation with starcraft.
Brozard: HECK
MatthewDennisMTG: damn that was the last player
Alahmnat: so many baubles
gsyhiap: 💩 ?
MatthewDennisMTG: 2ing Simulator
EricTheOrange: Graham?
CaptainSpam: Ah, the streamer chair comes in handy, I see.
goombalax: ah Graham derivative
EricTheOrange: wait no Graham is G-Star
PhlibbertyGib subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 8 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, PhlibbertyGib! (Today's storm count: 24)
TehAmelie: who cares, nuke em till they glows
Juliamon: Qwerpline Graham is G-Money
CaptainSpam: Next up, A-Train joins the game.
princess_intell: maybe we should all vote for g money because he'll give us good money
princess_intell: for aldersm'n
princess_intell: this has been a bad joke everyone should ignore
PMAvers: The good 'ol conc jump
sounderfan84: see what
Dog_of_Myth: clip it
TehAmelie: rocket jumping with a tank sounds more feasible than on foot, come to think of it
TheMerricat: Oh right, lets nope tonight. :D
EricTheOrange: gotta give your streamers enrichment.
TehAmelie: you are invincible!
TehAmelie: cannot be vinced
Spluuga: the propelled turret has yet to produce any significant advantage but the testing is going well
TehAmelie: oops
theotherelephant: Does the existence of Rocket Jumping imply the existance of other Rocket Aerobics?
PMAvers: Anyone under 100 is a LPB
Brozard: T?
Brozard: T3?
cutaos: t1?
Spluuga: I remember playing mechwarrior 2 back in the day where you would need to fire in advance to hit the opponents hitbox based on their ground speed
CaptainSpam: OC-3?
notthepenguins: t4?
Brozard: T-1000
EricTheOrange: It's like how you look back on the original Goldeneye multiplayer and how iot was like 5 FPS and you wonder how you ever even played that.
goombalax: ja'cuse!
TehAmelie: we'd always end up dual wielding the super laggy giant automatic gun all four of us and have like 0.1 frames per second
SquareDotCube: hideous yet awesome
SquareDotCube: also running at ~20 fps as well
DoctorHutch: in 2019 I tried out "Siphon Filter" again for it's 20th anniversary. I couldn't even run around a corner smoothly
DoctorHutch: 10th**
PMAvers: I remember the last time I went to a LAN party was back in the day of those Windows exploits causing viruses to run rampant over local networks, and not caring since I still had my old Mac tower. Basically acted as a vanguard burning CD's with virus protection on it.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Does anyone remember Faceball 2000? we used a splitter and paper to cover up each others view so we could deathmatch
RaklarLS: 20th anniversary sounds correct
PlantOnTwitch: I mean, "the top of the list" depends on how it's sorted...
TehAmelie: remember Screencheat? that seemed fun :3
satyropodobny: Quickly, somebody put on Loggins!
RaklarLS: killed by a bag of fries
Reecer6: i saw a good advertisement for screencheat once.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is this a Switch game?
Laserbeaks_Fury: A Frank Exchange of Views
TehAmelie: this is such a fun game, for a moment i forgot i lived in a world where World of Tanks existed. it was sweet
TehAmelie: saw an ad for that today that was just a 4 minutes long Terminator 2 fanfic. like is that allowed
fastlane250: It just occurred to me that maybe my smoke alarm ISN'T chirping
gsyhiap: Well I had to search out Orinoco Dick. I don't really know what I was expecting, but I guess it did what it set out to do...
BloodnBullets: @fastlane250 that made me think of a crapshot: 322 the bomb
TimIAm: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Let's Nope (Ben and Adam play horror games until they find the key that will bring them true happiness. Game: The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me) at Tue 05:00 PM PST (1:29 from now).
fastlane250: @bloodnbullets I think of that one when I think of problems I keep putting off
TehAmelie: woo
TehAmelie: let's go top 30
TehAmelie: i knew you could do it
Cptasparagus: is this a talking simulator like pokemon is a card game?
Juliamon: TS was doing this long before ITYC was
Juliamon: I mean, TS specifically did a second Disco Elysium playthrough 'because they wanted to'
accountmadeforants: Huh, I'm surprised that with what seem to be a fair few people playing, LRR is the only channel currently streaming this game.
blepharic: seabatClap
accountmadeforants: Lard!
blepharic: BibleThump
BloodnBullets: they really commited for it though
gsyhiap: Lard is a slippery customer
TheMerricat: I'll make you famous....
TehAmelie: hey that's the L3gend, they're a fakey
fastlane250: some of the beepboops in this really do sound like a smoke alarm with a dying battery and it's throwing me off hard
TehAmelie: L3g3nd, even. or are there multiple Legend impersonators rollin around?
LordZarano: The tank, the myth, 1H3 L3G3ND
TehAmelie: that was amazing
Alahmnat: Chekov's Landmine
satyropodobny: Truly, a Gamer
itira: that was freakin awesome
gsyhiap: The foreshadowing of that landmine comment!
accountmadeforants: Oh, and Cam asked whether this could be a browser game; it already is, and it's free there!
blepharic: Cheer100 So close! Cheer100
TehAmelie: get sniped
betweenmyself: Top five adjacent
Alahmnat: the top 5 of top 5s
RaklarLS: top 5 last to lose
TehAmelie: for large values of number 1-5
accountmadeforants: (Also on Android and iOS, sez the dev's site: )
voslan: Post-ma-top-5?
RechargeableFrenchman: Top fifth for sure, given there were 35 people
RechargeableFrenchman: Top 5(th)
RaklarLS: ok yeah, the menu did look like a mobile app
Alahmnat: we're within the error bars
Brozard: Help! Help! Time to die!
accountmadeforants: You were one #5 in one really hard to read graph
accountmadeforants: I think
TehAmelie: now we can make ourselves a gingerbread house, and own it
TehAmelie: the first part may be easier
DoctorHutch: own goal
blepharic: seabatClap
TheAinMAP: lrrHORN
SymphonicLolita: geeet dunked on
CataclysmicReverb: Wouldn't that be egg nog?
Alahmnat: actual top 5
LukeIsStrange: HeyGuys Hello guys!
accountmadeforants: So I checked out the Steam discussions for this game, and the most recent topic (45 minutes ago) is "stop teaming, you're pathetic and have no skill". I love it.
TheMerricat: 😆 l
Spluuga: what? chat playing? noooo :P
BloodnBullets: the idea that you can shoot a shield onto your teammates is neat
blepharic: seabatClap
TehAmelie: i'd argue coordinating a team of strangers with no means of communicating besides rockets takes some skill
DoctorHutch: nuke the underside for massive damage
TehAmelie: why is that tank so wet?
accountmadeforants: How can blue and red be in the lead when we are both blue and red? 🤔
accountmadeforants: seabatClap

TheAinMAP: Aw,
lord_wertornion: oh no
TehAmelie: what did we learn here? go for high ground i guess
JadedCynic: B A L L
TehAmelie: or high off the ground if possible
accountmadeforants: Go for the high, ground optional
KeytarCat: @TehAmelie Bring an umbrella?

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Let's Nope (Ben and Adam play horror games until they find the key that will bring them true happiness. Game: The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me) at Tue 05:00 PM PST (59m from now).
accountmadeforants: Feet: Humanity's crumple zone
LordZarano: @LRRbot ah, lithobreaking
TehAmelie: "bring a bigger boat" can be !advice and "bring a boat" !goodadvice
Juliamon: that is not appropriate !goodadvice
JadedCynic: Naw, what you do when in an uncontrolled free fall, is fire an arm-mounted grappling hook at the ground and pull yourself toward it FASTER and somehow llrFINE
TehAmelie: mostly top 5 again!
JadedCynic: "bring more gun"
Juliamon: (!goodadvice is specifically not actual advice)
CataclysmicReverb: Just use that unity physics to transfer your downward momentum to forward mommentum
satyropodobny: Pictured: capitalism
theotherelephant: Have any of these tanks simply considered ignoring the laws of physics?
LordZarano: !goodadvice
LRRbot: Don't listen to some bot in Twitch chat...
JDogg2K4: So this is basically worms battle royale?
mitomanox: lrrSHINE lrrCORI lrrSHINE lrrCAMERON lrrSHINE

Verrain2: reminds me of scorched earth only less funky bombs.
mitomanox: lrrFINE_HF
mitomanox: pow
satyropodobny: That sure was a weird Evangelion reference
Verrain2: waterproof tank is extra huh?
accountmadeforants: These tanks were advertised as water resistant, not water proof, so we can't claim any warranty
gsyhiap: driving upsidedown is fine though
accountmadeforants: Some of these tank skins are just *chef's kiss*
JadedCynic: purple was pwning yellow and red it seems
Verrain2: Dabba dee Dabba da.
CataclysmicReverb: Blue is the color of my team
satyropodobny: zip zop zooey

JadedCynic: "I got it!" >boom<
sgowell: Clip it. That’s the ticket
satyropodobny: There's no shame in losing to an airshot
ghost_waz: 'suck it nerd' -> dead :D
Gekyouryuu: "we got a number 1 victory royale. yeah, rocket bot royale we 'bout to get down" doesn't have the same flow
gsyhiap: oof
KeytarCat: Not last!
TehAmelie: that was just practice
BloodnBullets: too juicy
GhostValv: yes :)
iarethel0ser: Uhhhhh one more?
PMAvers: mmm... One more?
sounderfan84: only if you win?
7gorobei: good yes, good for you no
satyropodobny: dopamine achieved
Laserbeaks_Fury: Chocolate has to pass the bar to be sold, right?
EricTheOrange: theirs a reason it's called "devils foiod cake"
JadedCynic: good for your physical health, negligible; good for your emotional health, oh YEAH

TehAmelie: i'm having a white chocolate bar just now
SquareDotCube: Capitalism
EricTheOrange: aww I love their animations
JadedCynic: don't blame the bean; blame the slave-driving businessman
JadedCynic: good audio design

zeathean: The Menu is just … wow
JadedCynic: NICE
BloodnBullets: well you got to try them out...
satyropodobny: Is there a Dalek skin?
DoodlestheGreat: This is a very well-made cheeseburger.
Reecer6: this feels like when you do an experiment in chemistry class where you make s'mores and we've already eaten our s'mores and now we have to write about how the flame made the chocolate melt
TehAmelie: it's very reminiscent of Quake 3, where you'd end up dueling with rockets in the air at least 90% of the time
JadedCynic: yeah, the air control is awesome
Spluuga: it was fun :3
sgowell: Reminds me of the old game SubSpace.
accountmadeforants: (For anyone wanting to try it, the game's in your browser, on your phone, and on Steam. And it's free everywhere but Steam (where it's like 3 bucks):
mountaindudepdx: got a lot of rocket league feels
ContingentCat: our old rival Capitalism
mountaindudepdx: thanks for showing us this!
LurkerSpine: thanks for the stream!
DoodlestheGreat: See you later, folks! Thanks for the fun.
pn55: It's much less in your face than those horrible mobile games Graham and Alex played on W&P recently.
ContingentCat: Thanks Cam and Cori
PMAvers: Or looking at the calendar.
breadisbest1: give surge a run for his money next worms stream
TheAinMAP: escher3DOOT lrrAWESOME
TheAinMAP: guyjudgeBits
xantos69: Cheer50 bits
accountmadeforants: @pn55 Yeah, this seems like a solid game with monetization added onto it. Rather than monetization with a game tacked on.
PMAvers: *holds a envelope up to his head* I predict it will be... something called Signs of Sojourner?
FlushmasterCyclonis: Historian's note: Unbeknownst to the streamers, they only had mere hours before the poodlepocalypse began.
pn55: He's fine.
pn55: @pn55 Agreed!
Alahmnat: love a good blood fountain
PMAvers: Basically was that level of Gang Beasts with the grinder.
JadedCynic: he passed TWO QTEs, failed the third, then had a second chance...and failed THAT
DoodlestheGreat: Crunchy.
seanalpurvis: a good kill is where someone dies
tidehollowcat: He was such a terrible boss
JadedCynic: very a jerk
satyropodobny: He could have lived if he did not die. Facts.
aitsu100: yay Becca
TehAmelie: they're so hot, they're only half dressed
KeytarCat: It wasn't a symbolic or elegant death, but at least he's gone now
Laserbeaks_Fury: All Will Be Won
PMAvers: "So yeah, for this PPR we're doing something a little different. *starts passing out Pokemon packs*"
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
