RockPusher: !search for treasure
LRRbot: You find: a Potion of Healing!
RockPusher chugs the potion
RockPusher sprouts pathetically stubby, but undeniably extant wings
beowuuf: oh no, it's a potion of heeling, there goes your face streak
RockPusher is suspicious of the provenance of that potion
beowuuf: maybe i chugged a little of it first and am lying to you.... MiniK
RockPusher: Could have been worse I guess - it could have been a wandering Monster™ lrrBEEJ
beowuuf: or a trap
beowuuf: lungs are not useable by the wizard...anymore
Sethalidos: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: ChillPoint (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news!) at Fri 02:00 PM PST (1s ago).

Sethalidos: damn so close

ShaneLeeAtk: That face when you are not paying attention and suddenly BGC comes pouring out of the speakers. Delightful!
GapFiller: nalvThink hmm does enabling safesearch make any difference when searching for Genshin Impact EULA
princess_intell: @ShaneLeeAtk see my usual response is to jump about a foot in the air and have my fingertips go numb from momentary adrenaline
GapFiller: there was other news this week too but all can remember is Beejs washboards and Life Insurance Day
ShaneLeeAtk: @ShaneLeeAtk I have also had this response. :D
iris_of_ether: Oh shoot, I missed watching Checkpoint yesterday
FlushmasterCyclonis: Is the name of the band or song "Moose Bait?"
GapFiller: yes
ShaneLeeAtk: Correct
ShaneLeeAtk: !bgc
LRRbot: Jimmy Hinson AKA "BigGiantCircles" makes chiptunes, which are featured during commercial breaks. His music, including LRR remixes and the soundtrack for Road Quest, is available here:
FlushmasterCyclonis: Ooh, neat
TheMerricat: Chat, was James the Moose bait all along?
ButButTheJesus: is this a chankpank
beowuuf: sure
princess_intell: anyhow, my workweek was a special form of hell, but it's over now! hooray!

Invitare: Don't give Heather a cannon, we're in range
TheMerricat: Beej is the largest AOE modifier possible! :P
GapFiller: oooh handheld arms
Pteraspidomorphi: Banana bombs?
Aigarius: Haldebard and trampoline?
princess_intell: i can imagine beej about 40 feet behind heather going "you can do it honey"
frnknstn: ballista tower?
ShaneLeeAtk: I always wanted a railgun tower
RockPusher: Cori! Heather wants to borrow the bow! lrrBEEJ
nickthecatbear: also. flamethrower
princess_intell: cori has a bow?!?!
princess_intell: wait of course cori has a bow
TheMerricat: That was in fact Lock's Quest.
TheMerricat: Or Lock's Quest 2
TehAmelie: are you thinking of Orcs Must Die?
RockPusher: If you can ninja in high-vis then it means you are probably a very good ninja
LordZarano: 🥷 escher3SAFETY
NewtyNewts: The moving tower.
ThorSokar: Vampire Survivors: The Numbers Go Up!
kusinohki: the ninja corps of engineering. they build bridges and then make the bridges invisible...
Earthenone: bullet heaven?
TheAinMAP: Hello.
ThorSokar: (which I am passively playing right now)
GapFiller: oh right the Final Fantasy edits
Earthenone: just the ill gotten gains?
DiscordianTokkan: Yeah. They essentially rolled back the completion
IzlanntheLion: telephone game
misteline: funnily enough I understood it as them having their raid gear taken when I watched the vid.
northos: the funniest part of the gear rollback is that the GM couldn't/didn't actually delete the raid reward gear directly, they had to ask the player to discard it themselves, since the player had it equipped and the game can't handle a player with no equipped weapon
Earthenone: i guess it takes time to develop a mod
northos: also for clarity: there's no in-game official recognition of who cleared first, the fight just awards an achievement and title for anyone who clears it
SocraticMethod: Also the hitbox and tells mod.
misteline: And 14 is pretty dependent on group cohesion. even if they weren't talking just that person having a crutch makes a big difference
northos: producer and director
misteline: most wipes are because of 1 person not being good at dancing
TheMerricat: The secondary level of irony that I found out about this is apparently 'everyone' uses mods since they are client-side it's more of a "don't tell" situation where the dummy who got caught is being lambasted more for being caught via uploading the video of them using a mod...
GapFiller: TheMerricat v Eastern attitude to crime that
DiscordianTokkan: The people that say "EVERYONE uses mods" are also lying out their ass, to be clear
GapFiller: its less 'did the illegal thing' and more 'got caught doing it'
misteline: I certainly never did.
SocraticMethod: There is a chance that the upload was revenge since allegedly there 3 extra people that can fit in raid. They were supposed to be carried afterwards but the raid group.
SocraticMethod: there was 3 extra people in team that can fit*
GapFiller: or eg Graham Stark and Paul Saunders vs other members of LRR
SocraticMethod: but the raid group declined*
They_Are_Alyx: Ah yes, auteur theory
princess_intell: ugh auteur film theory can go kick rocks
accountmadeforants: @TheMerricat There are people who stream their runs, who don't use mods. It is very much a "don't tell" situation, though, in the sense that the game itself doesn't have anything too egregious in the way of anti-cheating/-modding, but if they do catch you doing it or talking about it (e.g., kicking someone from your party because their "parses" are bad, which they wouldn't be able to tell without mods) they will ban you.
TheMerricat: It's interesting to see the difference between how we handle someone like... Hideo Kojima and someone like David Cage....
epsilon_vee: It's very slightly more realistic than literally anthropomorphizing a company, but not much more
SocraticMethod: "auteur theory" is going be new "death of the author", isn't it.
princess_intell: it has done basically nothing but enable a lot of awful behavior from powerful men in hollywood in the name of "their vision"
GapFiller: TheMerricat tbf it feels theres other extracurricular considerations there
GapFiller: esp re David Cage specifically
TheMerricat: Reminder that Populous was actually meant to be a completely different game but Peter couldn't figure out how to make citizens follow orders so he just coded them to do their own thing....
Invitare: the aliens?
TheMerricat: @GapFiller Yeah, now. But I don't think most of us knew about that back, say when Heavy Rain came out and got a shotgun to the face of derision for certain aspects....
GapFiller: yeh when Graham and Paul eg make announcements it feels theres extra weight there

DiscordianTokkan: I wonder how much of a difference it makes that Yoshi-P Plays FF14 himself, for fun. So he KNOWS what the game is like and how difficult it is. (I have no idea if the lead Directors of say, WoW or Guild Wars 2 play their own games)
SocraticMethod: Face of the Company
GapFiller: TheMerricat true and to get into the conspiracy weeds it feels thats a situation where knowing the underlying behaviour was always like that yr start wondering if the signs were always there and pull at (possibly non existent) threads for magic bullet clues
SocraticMethod: @DiscordianTokkan Yoshi-P says Mechanist is not broken has much more weight when he could show that he can clear hardest raids with one
SocraticMethod: When Yoshi-P*
DiscordianTokkan: Indeed!

Wicker_Guide: "But my miyzazki is a cranky old soul with a love/hate relationship to his own fanbase"
iris_of_ether: I knew folks in electronics who left a company, founded a new company, and got bought out by the original company like 2-3 times in a row
SocraticMethod: Yves Guillemot pointing at a a sign "Don't Forget: You're Here Forever"
GapFiller: theres always gotta somebody who has to go the extra step and pee in the pool
GapFiller: which ruins it for everyone else
DiscordianTokkan: Dang quiet lawn mower, that
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: What do you use to stealth mow a lawn? Scizzors?
princess_intell: i mean, understandably from square enix's viewpoint
DiscordianTokkan: Maybe one of the manual push-mowers?
SocraticMethod: There's a bit of schadenfreunde going on since JP side has a tendency of accusing everyone on EN side of using mods.
Juliamon: An old-fashioned push mower?
Nenluen: my electric mower sounds like a moderately loud box fan
princess_intell: the ones that go clickety?
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: I got tetanus from one of those once, I think my brain isolated the memory of all push mowers until just now
northos: the devs have implemented some mods back into the game, so they're definitely aware of what's out there
LurkerSpine: I think the big mod was the camera on this one? like it was a FoV mod that allowed a coordinator help... coordinate?
DiscordianTokkan: Like Butt Sliders! RIP Butt Sliders
AdamYMHMI: The biggest thing is I think they don't want to have to design around mods like they do in WoW, since it creates an untenable design environment.
DiscordianTokkan: (IIRC Butt Sliders were an actual thing in 1.0, and it was taken out, along with modeled belts)
SocraticMethod: @LurkerSpine See the entire arena at once so they didn't have to coordnite to prevent wipe mechanic
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: Wow mods DID get out of control back when I played, so I get being more strict towards them
northos: @LurkerSpine they still had to coordinate, it just helped their support team observe and understand the mechanic better/faster
Lord_Hosk: You just chuck the weapons you don't like
GapFiller: nvm Final Fantasy Day we wanna know all abt Life Insurance Day
princess_intell: me too
BlueMechanic: I forgot to leave out milk and cookies for Yuffie and she stole all my materia
CaptainSpam: In other Final Fantasy news, it's Cloud's 30th Anniversary!
DEATHlikescats: Just like those ‘become a Scottish lord’ papers
Earthenone: long until lrr gets an aniversary in japan?
Earthenone: !patreon
LRRbot: 2645 patrons for a total of $20,414.33 per month.
TheMerricat: There is a Western world company.... :P
GapFiller: like RQ2
DiscordianTokkan: I wonder how much it'd take to get Victoria City Hall to declare it LRR Day...
AdamYMHMI: So now we have to donate money so you can incoporatte in Japan AND get a day then.
GapFiller: thats money that can go towards RQ2
princess_intell: heck i'll do it for 50 cents to cover color ink costs
ThorSokar: How about if I just go to the engraving store and have a fake one made up and mail it to you?
Wicker_Guide crumbles into dust
nickthecatbear: big mood

HuecalpixquiJeanIII: lrrHEART
SpacePotato01: Half my hair turned grey while watching LRR. Coincidence?
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: Someone should clip that from Beej for the highlights
GapFiller: lrrSHINE every day yr wake up is a victory all of its own
misteline: we are all lucky for every year we have lived, one less year we'll live when the world starts burning in earnest
woodlandfell: chillpoint is a key part of my Friday decompress, ty so much
RockPusher: I would watch the LRR anime
NewtyNewts: LRRnime when?
Nydestroyer: loadingreadyanime
Earthenone: finally a proper hockey anime!
Wicker_Guide: CommoDLRR Hustle Anime Coure coming winter 2024
TheMerricat: You heard it here first chat. Heather wants an LRR Anime. Get on it, STAT! :P
AdamYMHMI: Commodore Hustle, but an anime.
ThorSokar: if LRR Anime happens does that mean we get Body Pillows?
princess_intell: is it weird i have completely neutral feelings about this process?
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: The LRR anime already exists, it's called Pop Team Epic
Wicker_Guide: is that different from having no reaction @princess_intell ?
princess_intell: like yes it's pointless, but everyone in the transaction is getting exactly what they wanted to pay for
DiscordianTokkan: Hah!
Earthenone: !point
LRRbot: If you came here hoping for there to be a point to this, I have bad news for you.
GapFiller: nalvLUL so glad that cmd has spread to this channel
princess_intell: @Wicker_Guide i feel like i'm supposed to feel some kind of outrage about misuse of resources, but..... yeah nothing
Wicker_Guide: @princess_intell I'd be tempted to say no, but this is a slippery slope to acceptance of commercial transactions ;p
SocraticMethod: Semper Fi, Pumpkin Pie Day!
nickthecatbear: I'M wearing the plastic sheriff badge, so I have the authority to name days!
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: To be honest... it was cheaper than I thought it'd be
Lord_Hosk: I did a College media project on LoadingReadyRun, it boggled the mind of both my classmates and my teacher when I got to the point "they have been posting atleast one video online a week, for 4 years longer than youtube has existed."
princess_intell: hey, any day that i get an excuse to eat pie is a net positive to my life
GapFiller: mmm pie
AdamYMHMI: @princess_intell Which, given those holiday websites... is every single day.
princess_intell: mmmm... pie.....
nickthecatbear: Did they pay for an entire year for Sonic's 30th anniversary?
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: @princess_intell That means it's pie day! Off to the store!
jessicaengle: Heyo.
AdamYMHMI: I also wonder if someone at Square knew or was related to someone at that registry and that's how it came to be.
misteline: @nickthecatbear more like a decade
Wicker_Guide: Eevee Day is recognized by the Japan Anniversary Association
ThorSokar: Dragon Quest's fans are much more militant, so there's that
Wicker_Guide: Pikachi day has not
GapFiller: ohhh Beej yr underestimating how big DQ is in Japan
Wicker_Guide: *Pikachu
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: Dragon Quest is effing huge in japan
GapFiller: Final Fantasy is the export game whereas DQ is the game they keep for themselves
DiscordianTokkan: Oh RIGHT. I should buy the Dragon Quest 3DS games before the eShop disappears...
AdamYMHMI: Shake Hands With Dragon Quest
princess_intell: i have no scope for these things: is DQ, FF, or MH bigger in japan?
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: According to Wikipedia, DQ 11 sold over 2 million copies in 2 days in Japan. FF15 sold 690,000 in a week
Wicker_Guide: "Authority" means that a lot of people agree with it
Earthenone: i dont think its quite checkpoint news worthy, but the thing where nintendo is selling vouchers for digital first party titles at a discount seems like something beej should cover or at least be aware of :)
princess_intell: 2 million is HUGE omg
Wicker_Guide: it's tautological
ThorSokar: Robert Waldo, and unfortunately he is dead
gnyrinn: Now I want to taste the beer the JAA makes.

They_Are_Alyx: Ripley's has its origins in carney stuff for sure
jessicaengle: What about Count Longeaurdoux's Book of Party Tricks, Redneck Jokes and Worldly Records?
AdamYMHMI: Ripleys and DQ share that for me, Heather.
SocraticMethod: Found the pokemon day on JAA, but not sure if it's registered there or just added
CaptainSpam: Well, Ripley's is more "weird or curious stuff". The fact that most of its history was in a very different time, socially, well...
Earthenone: the ff14 copypasta?
RockPusher: This just in: Guinness confirms Beej first person to eat the *whole* thing! lrrBEEJ

HuecalpixquiJeanIII: Yeah wow, FF15 sold more Worldwide in the first day than DQ11 did in the first month. BUT HALF of DQ11's first month sales were sold in Japan on the 1st 2 days
nickthecatbear: A+
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
Wicker_Guide: fots shired

SocraticMethod: E3 became a scam when they left enthusiast in. Then transformed into a sales event
Sky_Kast: after a little more time I might try a convention

Meltalar: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: ChillPoint (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news!) at Fri 02:00 PM PST (46m ago).
Wicker_Guide: Breaking News: E3 presence to feel more like an actual Trade Expo, enthusiasts are upset
GapFiller: the ligging industry undoubtedly care
MWGNZ: devolver is very good at being near e3
princess_intell: is E3 going to loop around and just become a professional expo again?
GapFiller: all those journalists w/ so many free presentations promos parties to goto
NewtyNewts: Devolver Parking Lot demo space
Invitare: Devolver is recoreded
FelanEntane: Wasnt devolver like uninvited one year and thats why they do what they do now?
Arium26: So, they don't go to E3 as much as they go near E3
GapFiller: people gamed the system for all the swag yeh
ThorSokar: GameStop also used to host a HUGE party
Wicker_Guide: a window
accountmadeforants: People show off neat and gimmicky controllers and other pieces of hardware (like kits to turn GameBoys into a PDA)
GapFiller: istr it reached a point where being a GameStop employee was enough to get yr in
Dr_4_EYES: A literal press conference
princess_intell: are xbox and sony and everyone still sending, like, a couple people?
princess_intell: not like to show anything, just to talk to other industry people and etc
Wicker_Guide: I would strongly guess yes, but don't know
Wicker_Guide: like, expos like this are a major location where developers find funding in other industries, and I'd guess E3 does that as well
LurkerSpine: I think Xbox is the only one who has confirmed they're doing something around that time I think
princess_intell: it's so weird that there are almost 2 e3s going on
NewtyNewts: No, it's usually been start-of-the-open-floor perios
LurkerSpine: I think it's kinda weird for the big 3 to skip - aren't they paying dues to the ESA for this?
princess_intell: one for the fans where it's all PR and one with all industry people talking about actual business
SocraticMethod: So funny story, there is a industry expo for rollecoasters and they are considering banning non-industry and journalists called thoosies (from enthusiast) because one was pretty disruptive trying to create content for their YouTube channel.
Wicker_Guide: I mean, film festivals basically work the same way as E3 was trying to work
SocraticMethod: non-industry and journalist participants*
NewtyNewts: I Think Sony was the first one to switch off, and have their State of Play not linked with E3. Even when Nintendo stopped doing live showings and started the recorded broadcasts, they were still week-of-E3
princess_intell: @SocraticMethod i hope they get to do that. i feel bad for everyone who has their business presentations interrupted by morons
Akaiatana: The big corporations might just each have a james wilkes booth on the show floor, helping kill E3
accountmadeforants: @SocraticMethod Yeah, if you see those recordings of all sorts of cool tech being shown off at, say, CES, and people aren't being weird or clogging the space. It's because "fans" aren't being let in - it's all professionals.
HbombAndFriends: I am looking forward to going to PAX again.
princess_intell: i find that i'm always in favor of trade shows being allowed to stay "professional" and non-PR
princess_intell: important work happens at professional confrences
AdamYMHMI: PAX Dev is more a professional/training conference and networking event than a trade show
HbombAndFriends: I don’t think PAX Dev has been a thing for several years
princess_intell: i think i'm also just in favor of professionals not being bothered by morons
accountmadeforants: Also, big ups to GDC. Even though I'm not a game developer (though I do work with software), the presentations held there are frequently fascinating.
LurkerSpine: Is CES still a thing for video games?
accountmadeforants: Companies sponsor trade shows because they recognize that they're useful. If you see those multi-thousand dollar "tickets" for shows, that's why, they expect companies to pay those prices to send their people there.
SocraticMethod: @LurkerSpine Sort of. Usually it's for smaller consoles/handhelds and their launch titles.
GapFiller: it feels the people blagging their way into a closed event turning it into an open event gets at a tragedy of the commons type answer to Heathers question there
GapFiller: ie E3 was fine as a pure trade expo then pivoted to cater to the blaggers which proved to be its ultimate undoing
accountmadeforants: @LurkerSpine CES is basically all tech, from heavy industry to TVs to mobile phones to laptop fans to HVAC software. I'm continually shocked that it works.
AdamYMHMI: I used to get popcorn at a laundromat.
TheMerricat: For those who have never heard of it -
Akaiatana: 'Eating at a laundrymat' is my Tumbler handle
GapFiller: being able to understand Beejs analogy perfectly here feels worrying
princess_intell: @GapFiller right??
Lord_Hosk: wait what?
AdamYMHMI: Exclusive: LRR not going to E3
Lord_Hosk: Im canceling my E-3 subscription now
Invitare: what if they invited Chillpoint to attend, NOT Checkpoint?
heartofgoldfish: other gaming journalists might be going to E3, but they don't have THIS hat
GapFiller: Invitare Kathleen: I'm at GDC! back to you Graham!
GapFiller: Graham: what!? why did we send her there just for that!?
CouldntPickAUsername: also thank you for entertaining me while I'm trapped under kitty
LurkerSpine: There's test seats for like, all the rides
GapFiller: idk there was certainly a whole lotta Beej in this story lrrBEEJ
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
Akaiatana: Nice segway from conferences to circumferences
AdamYMHMI: A ride designed for ANTS?!
ButButTheJesus: ah, good foley
princess_intell: this seems like poor planning and accessibility accomodations
princess_intell: then what you do is you name it "Bowser Jr" and put it in the kiddy area
CaptainSpam: I thought I read that it was just a standard harness that was used elsewhere in Universal Studios.
TheMerricat: Normally don't they design rides for children such that the parents can ride along too?

TheMerricat: almost makes you wonder if the person who said "you can't remove this from the game or things will break" really wasn't fibbing just a tad
ogundiety: Debbie is happy healthy and alive!
TemporallyAwry: They could have made it nice - but this makes clear that there were >threats< made, and this is a scream for help.
misteline: and well fed
PrinceNimzar: hey chat, just got here what game are they talking about?
ogundiety: 'Sport's Story'
KeytarCat: The Evangelion school of stress management
PrinceNimzar: ty :)
princess_intell: @KeytarCat the one where you're a middle schooler with paternal issues?
LordZarano: The original easter eggs were devs sneaking credits in cause management wouldn't let them
CaptainSpam: The Legend of Zelda: Groundhog Day.
RockPusher: foxmarMOON
HbombAndFriends: Stockholm syndrome. That’s why people say they like Majora’s Mess
TheMerricat: Specifically they are talking about the secret room in Sport's Story where the devs ripped everyone apart, apparently they've changed the text so that everyone is 'happy' to the point where it sounds as if they are being held hostage....
Gizmoloid: meh "asset flip" doesn't really mean reusing assets it's more about doing so without doing ANYTHING else imho
gnyrinn: Not ‘asset flip’ but ‘old rope’
CAKHost: Wait people were calling Majora's Mask an asset flip? Wow.
KeytarCat: @KeytarCat I was thinking "The boss ran out of money, so now everything sucks, so I'm gonna do some of my most intense work because I can't have time for anything else"
Darleysam: so, cancelled after one season
TheMerricat: I beleive the proper term for MM would be 'recycled assets'.
ButButTheJesus: yeesh
Akaiatana: Don't share your cheat codes, I guess
LurkerSpine: Also exclusively iOS? Brutal
TemporallyAwry: Netflix is having a "great day" :tm:
CAKHost: @TheMerricat ^ This ^
angryoptimist: Using "asset flip" inappropriately is either a joke or (more probably) a bait--don't fall for it.
Gizmoloid: @cakhost I think Beej was facrtious
CAKHost: Ah okay! XD
Sarah_Serinde: Thanks Beej
RockPusher: !lovebeej
LRRbot: Chat loves Beej and I love Beej lrrBEEEJ
angryoptimist: Case in point!
NewtyNewts: Good reading angryoptimist
YeetTheRich_: beej is a pyromancer wheelerPyro
KeytarCat: gdi Beej
Gizmoloid: oh there we go LUL
definenull: *chat will remember this*
CAKHost: I thought people had said that in chat.
ThorSokar: It's OK, I already didn't list Majora's Mask
Reecer6: netflix *just* walked back that password sharing policy a couple of hours ago, claiming it was a "mistake"
RAICx: Okay, yeah, that's disappointing. I loved Valiant Hearts: The Great War
ogundiety: Strawmanning!
mowdownjoe: Where is that spray bottle?
TemporallyAwry: !quote beej
LRRbot: Quote #3444: "That seems really lrrEFF ing tight." —Beej [2016-09-19]
NewtyNewts: Beej: designated jackass
princess_intell: note: don't insult majora's mask in front of heather
AdamYMHMI: I assumed it was some sort of work-release thing for him :P
RAICx: It's more of a puzzle game
Snowcookies: It's a side scroller iirc
Wicker_Guide: more puzzle vn
RAICx: I openly wept at the ending of the first game.
Wicker_Guide: talking sim played it
CAKHost: Hi, I got in here just when they were talking about "Sports Story" and most I was taken from that is "Oh the makers of 'Golf Story' did another game and oh making sad references to developer work-life D:"
GreatGodOm: It looks like darkest dungeon
LordZarano: Scribblenauts art style
angryoptimist: This kinda looks like the Scribblenauts art style.
Lobo_Apache: It looks like from the same people who did "This War of Mine"
RAICx: They really pull of that juxtaposition
johkmil: People dying pointlessly? In WW1?
angryoptimist: Most appropriate to WW1 if everyone you know in the game dies, including the viewpoint character at the end.
Amentur: It does somewhat tie in with "All Quiet on the Western Front"
Lord_Hosk: Netflix has been making some strange choices the past 18 months in order to combat the idea that they are backsliding
GapFiller: there was that one crapshot abt exactly this
mowdownjoe: Beej, I don't mind some of Netflix's dubs.
Juliamon: hmmm
GapFiller: "Amazon has passed on our pilot for Real Shitty Hospital" "okay fine return Netflix calls"
CAKHost: Nope do not want
LarkSachrosis: no
ButButTheJesus: #thanksIhateit
NewtyNewts: Spider-hand
definenull: lrrSPOOP
BusTed: It's AI art hand
Darleysam: oh hey, it's the hand they used to train AI art programs
misteline: it looks like it was made by an AI art program
ThorSokar: so, you're Thing from The Adams Family?
Robot_Bones: Its Armor
ContingentCat: It's called fashion Heather
AugmentingPath: Is the watch a deadspace healthbar?
Juliamon: It seems to have too many joints in the fingers
Invitare: obviously the camera is the eyes
Lithobraker: sweet, we get to play as the fingers from elden ring
definenull: this is why artists can't draw hands
CouldntPickAUsername: I think we need Alex to play this
SK__Ren: Wait, that watch! Is that J.P. Prewitt's hand?
josh___something: OH wow
Akaiatana: You might not find them handsome, but you sure find them handy!
CAKHost: Oh the knuckles closest to the tip has to be broken for that to work. D: Nope nope nope.
princess_intell: welp i didn't need sleep tonight anyway
LordZarano: Watch + Play pallet cleanser material maybe?
ContingentCat: fair point yes
NewtyNewts: That's TF2, Heather.
Lobo_Apache: watch is a hat for the hand
definenull: watches are hats for the hand
Angreed66: watch is hat
SocraticMethod: Is watch and hat for hands?
definenull: can't spell watch without hat
Reecer6: the agony of being left-handed but only being a right hand
Lobo_Apache: eeeyyyy same watches y'all
Agnememnon: I'm right handed and wear my watch on my way right hand
Izandai: I'm right handed and when I wore a watch I wore it on my right hand.
mowdownjoe: TF2 has taught me hats are everything.
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart sergeSipp
CAKHost: Is the watch a necklace for the hand?
RockPusher: Good old Hypercard
Gizmoloid: or a belt?
Juliamon: CAKHost That's a bracelet
Juliamon: A watch is more a belt.
ContingentCat: sometimes a watch is just a watch
ThorSokar: i still got some hypercard stuff somewhere
Juliamon: or maybe a collar...
princess_intell: kinky?
TheMerricat: HyperCard is based on the concept of a "stack" of virtual "cards". Cards hold data, just as they would in a Rolodex card-filing device. Each card contains a set of interactive objects, including text fields, check boxes, buttons, and similar common graphical user interface (GUI) elements. Users browse the stack by navigating from card to card, using built-in navigation features, a powerful search mechanism, or through user-created scripts.
AdamYMHMI: Does that make a pocket-watch with a chain like suspenders?
SocraticMethod: @Juliamon No, those are the hot topic black plastic bracelets
Sky_Kast: yeah cyan made a lot of games like myst back then
r10pez10: a watch is just a mood ring
r10pez10: because your mood changes based on what time it is
ContingentCat: @AdamYMHMI it's not holding anything up, maybe more like a bolo tie?
mowdownjoe: @themerricat [citation needed]
TheMerricat: @mowdownjoe :P
Astramentha: Well that's adorable
AdamYMHMI: @ContingentCat Maybe it's just like a belt buckle then
mowdownjoe: @themerricat Kappa
Gizmoloid: now I imagine this hand coming to a shoe shine stand and having its nails polished LUL
TheMerricat: :D
AdamYMHMI: With no loop attached to it.
Lobo_Apache: mysts of time?
saucemaster5000: God I made so many games in a silly program called klik and play back in the day....
NewtyNewts: So... they feel like bags of sand?
ThorSokar: chonk-a-chu!
LurkerSpine: old style pikachu
BusTed: That's a gen 1 Pikachu
CAKHost: Bean-Chu!
CouldntPickAUsername: they need to a voltorb like this
angryoptimist: OG-style
princess_intell: the sleepy one would be perfect
definenull: friend-shaped
AdamYMHMI: That Pikachu can't ride the Mario Kart ride
LarkSachrosis: As Ken Sugimori intended
ContingentCat: It's a good squish, they're named well
misteline: they feel like cotton candy
NewtyNewts: Ah yes, streaming as a tactile media
BusTed: PokGengar
OhaiMireiya: emotional support squishmallow
gualdhar: CANADA (tm)
saucemaster5000: Why does the bigger chonkachu simply eat the smaller pikachu?
ContingentCat: Cut to next mail time: so many squishmellos
definenull: absolute units
Astramentha: chonkers!
SocraticMethod: I love how they measure them in 10-inch pikatchus. Anything but the metric system :D
ThorSokar: 1 max size chonk-a-chu please!
Izandai: @saucemaster5000 How do you think it got so big?
definenull: is this gigantamaxing?
ContingentCat: wat
CAKHost: Wow D8
LurkerSpine: wait what
CururuGuasu: Human head for scale
YeetTheRich_: it is a very small human
ContingentCat: is she a borrower?
Raiger: Maybe she just happens to have a very small head?
princess_intell: that's an adult woman too not a kid
BusTed: @ContingentCat LUL
AdamYMHMI: If you switched the colors on the small ones, that's an adorable and disturbing picture.
CururuGuasu: Those are beanbags at that point
CAKHost: Heather: I don't care get me those!
Agnememnon: 20 inch radius
ThorSokar: Beej: I am 2 miles from a Target
princess_intell: i'll ship it to you
RockPusher: Check Lee-Lee's twitter Paul
Wicker_Guide: cough cough mailtime
LurkerSpine: they're at Walmart
Lithobraker: that's all? $45 for that size?
NonjaBiru: I think they're also going to be at Walmart soon
misteline: they're pretty big, but not massive.
princess_intell: i live 5 minutes from a targetr
Lobo_Apache: We can ship it
ThorSokar: I DO NOT CARE
OhaiMireiya: get Heather some squishies!
Lord_Hosk: Check out friend of the channel Leelee
FelanEntane: Road Quest, squishable edition?
ThorSokar: hahaha
Serivus: I know some people that are going to Philly soon :P
CururuGuasu: 40 inches is more than a meter
misteline: You could vlog the trip
Lord_Hosk: (Twitter)
Astramentha: but beeeeeeej it's a business expeeeeeeense
definenull: i gotta feeling I know what's comin in mail time in 6 months time
Agnememnon: ship to me I'll d I've it across the boarder and leave it at a predetermined drop location.
LurkerSpine: They are NOT Target exclusive
incslayer: have grahan film it and makes it a gvlog
RockPusher: Lee-Lee has many gengar
CouldntPickAUsername: 500 pikachus arrive
PhorrestGaze: Roadquest: Sidequest: the journey to squish
KeytarCat: Are there squish lines on either the face or the 'Mallos? It could be at arm's length with a weird focal distance
TemporallyAwry: Instructions unclear - how many Gengar are too many?
angryoptimist: Competing squish technologies
TheMerricat: @LoadingReadyRun so there is a picture that has a better size comparison near the bottom of the polygon article, it has them sitting on either side of a dog on a couch/sofa
ContingentCat: clearly further squish research is needed
ThorSokar: haha, this becomes the new bump in the night
Ukon_Cairns: next week, chillpoint on location on the ferry to seatle to procure target pokemon squishmallows?
princess_intell: I WANT
Lord_Hosk: LeeLee's couch
princess_intell: that's not a couch anymore, that's a nest
TheAinMAP: jlrrBaby
ContingentCat: Babies have long been needing updated
They_Are_Alyx: Prop baby!
Lord_Hosk: Crying stinky potatos and its the best time
saucemaster5000: Babies are all miniature winston churchill dolls
princess_intell: @Lord_Hosk isn't that just hormones
misteline: Sims 4 is always a step backwards. Sims 3 had toddlers.
gualdhar: can you turn babies into human leather mini cowboy hats?
Akaiatana: Before, when they were in a basinet, would they be an infant tile?
Lobo_Apache: Incredibly unrealistic 0/10 needs just more screaming
AdamYMHMI: They can go on adventures and steal Reptar bars?!
SocraticMethod: Can babies burn down a house by failing to make food now?
Izandai: @Akaiatana booooo
ThorSokar: dang Squishmallows appear to be sold out already
Lord_Hosk: No, when babies get big they talk back and are still crying stinking potatoes
KeytarCat: B I T E
princess_intell: i've been around toddlers, they're OPINIONATED
TimIAm: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Friday Night Paper Fight (The LRR crew plays Magic the Gathering! 4-Player Mono Red Commander Night! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Fri 05:00 PM PST (1:19 from now).
NewtyNewts: Mailbaby
Serivus: "A Wave of babies!"
BrowneePoints: Our the middle of baby...our house.....
TheMerricat: So the baby news is big, but I think maybe the fact that they are releasing a base game update to be have transinclusive body shapes and post-op scars is big too.
LordZarano: Can you put baby in the corner?
LurkerSpine: doesn't Sims have some sort of baby challenge?
princess_intell: have there been changes to how sleep deprivation works now?
TheMerricat: Baby is an expasion pack
NewtyNewts: You wouldn't shoot a policeman!
CouldntPickAUsername: you know what you're right, I wouldn't download a baby
CAKHost: Apparently people will have to to get this update!
ThorSokar: I mean, I did download a car out of spite, so.....
They_Are_Alyx: Sims also recently added chest binders!
SocraticMethod: The Paradox method of updating games
ContingentCat: @CouldntPickAUsername I wasn't going to but now, maybe
Lysander_salamander: yay lightswitches
They_Are_Alyx: Lightswitch raves!
princess_intell: they're shockingly cheap
Akaiatana: Nintendo Switch not best switch
TheDailyMapleSyrup: The question is are we the sims of the universe?
Raiger: Oh, medical WEARABLES. I swore I heard Paul say medical WEREWOLVES at first
Juliamon: Raiger SAME
AdamYMHMI: Wow, my hearing glitched for a second there... I heard "Medical Werewolves"
Raiger: I was wondering what the heck that even was...
virre_: I too heard Werevolves
Juliamon: Apparently everyone heard Werewolves
angryoptimist: @Raiger I initially misheard that as "medical werewolves" too.
Izandai: I also heard werewolves.
AdamYMHMI: I'm glad I'm not the only one lol
angryoptimist: @Juliamon Wishful thinking, maybe
Raiger: I am very comforted I wasn't the only one lol
Gizmoloid: I heard wearables, but somehow completely missed "medical"
saucemaster5000: That's impractical who wants a doctor you can only visit on the full moon
Izandai: Werewolves were added in a different update.
ThorSokar: Upon further research there are 2 Chonk-a-chu's left in the sate, both of them in my town, hahahaha
LarkSachrosis: Well now I want The Sims to have Werewolves working as EMTs.
princess_intell: i have to say, i like the way ACNH does gender
KeytarCat: I heard wearables, but forgot we were talking about Sims
Juliamon: angryoptimist I remembered Sims added werewolves so I thought this might be "the werewolves can be doctors now?"
princess_intell: just pick the way you want to look
angryoptimist: @Izandai But what about the medical kind?
LordZarano: Werewolves are already in the sims
AdamYMHMI: @Izandai You could have a werewolf be a doctor as well.
Izandai: @princess_intell I also love that, and I'm as cis as they come.
angryoptimist: @Juliamon They can't?
YeetTheRich_: this is my emotional support werewolf
BrowneePoints: Werewolf Proctologist
BrowneePoints: my body shuddered
Astramentha: Trans werewolf doctor in charge of a baby ward
a_Weakling: i am still only hearing werewolf, what is he actually saying?
Lysander_salamander: yay
BrowneePoints: Welp Beej just wrote a new Anime
TemporallyAwry: Context is Great PrideLaugh
Juliamon: a_Weakling "wearable"
Akaiatana: It's an endless loop-garou
Izandai: I want to be very clear: Beej and Heather are not doing a bit here.
a_Weakling: thank you
Juliamon: ie. a thing you can wear
TheMerricat: @a_Weakling wearables.
NewtyNewts: That's 'Link's Awakening', actually?
TheDailyMapleSyrup: I'd watch werewolves vs Satan
Izandai: Decompiled?
Raiger: We can get widescreen humans now? Awesome!
BismuthBorealis: woah, widescreen human gwnome?
Reecer6: i love to see a game disassembled and then optimized
KeytarCat: @NewtyNewts SMB 2?
saucemaster5000: by god remember link's awakening's two slot system? Including for shield and sword?
NewtyNewts: Link's Awakening DX may have
Izandai: Wouldn't the Oracle games be the asset flips? They came out after Link's Awakening.
princess_intell: i always internalized "asset flip" as "asset flipped over"
Wicker_Guide: native
princess_intell: as in "we flipped it over and drew on the other side"
KeytarCat: @princess_intell gameplay stays, assets flip?
princess_intell: yep
LordZarano: Once you have it decompiled the game is an oyster
LarkSachrosis: whoah
LurkerSpine: I *really* hate this video, because whoever made it played the game at 2 different resolutions
ogundiety: Completely spoiling you for further plays on the original, I suspect
LurkerSpine: it makes me feel like they didn't know crap about emulators
BrowneePoints: As someone who has 100%ed the original a dozen times
BrowneePoints: holy crap the difference
LordZarano: Like having 2 monitors, you can never go back
Izandai: @princess_intell Nah, it's like a house flip. Take the assets (because good assets are hard to make), put them together haphazardly with some basic gameplay, and sell it.
princess_intell: @Izandai well i know that now
LordZarano: Mario 64 had a compile flag set wrong iirc
LurkerSpine: RIP RumbleVerse
Lithobraker: Finally, now that's it's running at 60 fps real gamers(tm) will finally be able to enjoy mario
SAJewers: i think a few more got killed today too
LurkerSpine: Knockout City is now dying too
angryoptimist: Wow, they're really killing Rumbleverse? I heard the rumors, but I didn't believe it.
Akaiatana: Marvel Avengers got canceled 48 hours after they released a 75 USD skin pack
LordZarano: !prime
LordZarano: oh it's mod only
Gizmoloid: @Lithobraker @Lithobraker Nah, real gamers(tm) have already moved on to 144fps ;)
ThorSokar: There's a VERY interesting talk about how much more money you make by doing that
cuttlefishman: They get enough views to sell merch
cuttlefishman: like the Rejected Wii Play Games shirts
Reecer6: no residuals, basically
ThorSokar: it's also a historical preservation nightmare
cuttlefishman: And very price concious consumers by those very old games and then use that to inform preferences and future purchases
RockPusher: Trading the reliable long-tail for a big old gamble on trying to get subscription revenue
Akaiatana: All my Apes, gone.
TheDailyMapleSyrup: I blame LRR for introducing me to how fun fortnight is
TemporallyAwry: "Dead Game News" ... LuvOops it never gets easier
Akaiatana: @TheDailyMapleSyrup Note your spelling :P
Lithobraker: I could also see this introducing a vicious cycle where because the game has to be a hit day one or else it's worthless each company will pour more and more and more resources into each game
LurkerSpine: Like, CrossfireX had single player campaigns, and people won't be able to play it
RockPusher: or should I say "subscription"
Mai_Andra: I'm a little sad about Babylon's Fall. It was fun to play. It was just hard to see. I just wanted them to let me remove the filter, so it didn't look so blurry...
TheMerricat: I still remember buying Earth & Beyond apparently a month before EA closed the servers...
Angreed66: The thing with games like apex is that they require server upkeep as they are base multiplayer
NewtyNewts: What a wonderful world it would be...
Izandai: Because fuck Ubisoft.
Izandai: Oh hey how about that.
cuttlefishman: I mean, there are also too many game
Lysander_salamander: They overcharge the games
cuttlefishman: like really
LordZarano: patientgamers is a whole thing
CururuGuasu: There’s some value in the Nintendo method of never discounting games
Reecer6: i do think there's a middle ground between go on sale for 70% in the first six months and never go on sale ever. somewhere.
Lobo_Apache: There is the DoorMonster video about patient gamers. Very funny, very on point
RockPusher: It hurts my likelihood of buying a game that never goes on sale — but I respect that choice

TemporallyAwry: Thank you mods KPOPheart
TheMerricat: 90% of the games I've acquired during the pandemic have been via Bundles...
LurkerSpine: sergeModLove sergeModLove sergeModLove
TheMerricat: ModLove sergeModLove ysbrydMod
Earthenone: right now nintendo first party titles HAVE gotten better, you can get two vouchers for 100usd redemable for first party switch titles
pyronils80: I buy games only on sale with at 25-50% off!
Juliamon: People who can't afford many things learn patience.
LarkSachrosis: and some games are
Drew_64: I'm just a one and done player, so will always wait for the complete edition with all the DLC down the line, and even then i'll usually wait for the sale
LordZarano: isthereanydeal is a great site/service for that, you can set it up to email you when the price drops to the lowest it's ever been
LarkSachrosis: some aren't
princess_intell: i buy games by setting a max price for how much i'm willing to pay for it. then i put it on my steam wish list and am informed when the price drops
Izandai: BOTW is still just as great as it was 5 years ago.
aiamethyst: gamestop used to be good for getting nintendo titles cheaper for the used ones
TemporallyAwry: Don't buy games, just watch LRR-Streams, it's cheaper PrideHeyyy
Juliamon: TemporallyAwry Literally this is me tho
AdamYMHMI: It's rare that I'll buy games at full price, but often it's because they just don't look that interesting.
Lysander_salamander: I usually wait until the DLC is all out, for the game of the year edition. That way I'd get the whole game
CouldntPickAUsername: I actually kinda wanted to try sword and shield but to drop 80 bucks on a game I might not like won't happen. So the fact that they never drop the prices means they lose a sale...
princess_intell: i love steam sales.
pyronils80: And if you wait eneough even all or most the bugs are fixed!
princess_intell: like, probably too much.
princess_intell: twice a year i drop $30 on like 10-15 good and cool games
PlantOnTwitch: a friend of mine got a game full price near midnight and as he was downloading it went on sale by like 75%. no refunds
AdamYMHMI: It's why I don't like Borderlands, I resent that I bought the original and then it went on sale the next day and it was too late for me to return it and get the discount.
Izandai: @PlantOnTwitch mattlrDed
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: Huh, it just hit -40 windchill. The magic temperature that's the same in both measurements
TemporallyAwry: I Pre-Ordered Civ6 with the full Steam Bundle. I'm never paying full price for a game again LuvOops
princess_intell: it's 13 where i am now
YeetTheRich_: game devs have bigger things to be (rightfully) angry about
Akaiatana: There's also the issue of decreasing purchasing power of consumers.
Lysander_salamander: Plus they're hiking the price up to 80 dollars or more for the "standard" price of AAA games
Wicker_Guide: it's the JC Penney effect. "Normal" price becomes a premium for impatience
cuttlefishman: @TemporallyAwry You can afford other games now?
Sogheim: I decided I won't pay more than $1/hr of content. 20 hr game, not buying it for more than $20
BrowneePoints: Origami King is amazing
BrowneePoints: play it chat
ImmortalLen: These ads are geting on my nervers
SocraticMethod: Counterpoint: how much of AAA gaming costs is marketing?
Drew_64: stylised graphics always seem to hold up better, to me. If i want realism i'll go outside
Izandai: @Lysander_salamander Inflation is a hell of a drug.
SocraticMethod: game development costs*
Lysander_salamander: That's not inflation
LurkerSpine: uh twitch
TemporallyAwry: @cuttlefishman yeah - it was just such a bad experience. Never pre-order a digital product
princess_intell: gamecube mario looks basically like switch mario
RockPusher: Consumer price sensitivity in the PC gaming realm is sadly very disconnected from the production costs
unremitting subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 86 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, unremitting! (Today's storm count: 36)
Invitare: they're trying to get all the money, while Nintendo already has it all
princess_intell: ah, the conclusion of every chillpoint: fuck capitalism
LordZarano: I'm pretty sure even the Atari 2600 was sold on the basis of having better graphics than the previous console generation...
Izandai: I mean... I probably will. They make good games.
nickthecatbear: lrrSHINE lrrSHINE

TemporallyAwry: Red means it goes fast!
Lobo_Apache: There will be Blood Commander Night
GapFiller: and I for one am all on a 3 hr CP+ having to end early
TemporallyAwry: Only remaining Mono-Color is blue iirc
Juliamon: Red can be *very* fast
Invitare: That's surprising, given how much time you must have had to spend reading the cards
RockPusher: Hot and toasty hugs all around
ThorSokar: Ben said he's planning on going for the record (most commander games in one night)
LurkerSpine: probably slow, considering commander life totals
They_Are_Alyx: Red is always fastah!
GapFiller: 8 hrs of it according to the schedule
Dread_Pirate_Westley: JoeKim and Dylan.
