LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: ChillPoint (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news!) at Fri 02:00 PM PST (10m from now).
TehAmelie: hehe. the last 5 minutes of Graham dying quite made that episode
RockPusher wraps up his episode of Tsundere Villainess Lieselotte just in time
TehAmelie: i'm gonna guess that's a code for Killing Eve
RockPusher: current season anime with an interesting framing device/meta narrative
GapFiller: in the absence of current video game news this week lemme tell yall my big video game story of the past seven days: Truxton on Steam!
GapFiller: which I only noticed as a footnote in a news story abt something else entirely
TehAmelie: anime was my second guess
Juliamon: Haven't heard of it, my timeline's been covered in Pizza Tower
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: ChillPoint (Paul, Beej and Heather chat about Video Games and Video Game related news!) at Fri 02:00 PM PST (0s from now).
TheAinMAP: On the dot.
TehAmelie: i've been playing this adorable witch dating game So May It Be
: Afternoon chat, I finished the bonus stream VOD just in time it seems.
CAKHost: Hello everyone!
TehAmelie: let's say it's a game where half the time i fully expected someone would say "when shall we three tweet again?"
RockPusher looks at Truxton, is reminded of Tyrian, feels old when realising how old Tyrian is
CAKHost: I wonder if Beej has gotten his wet knaps?
TheMerricat: It's amazing to think that Beej was born just 500 episodes of Checkpoint ago, isn't it chat?
GapFiller: RockPusher if we gaan talk abt counting the passing years look up the age of All Your Base
TehAmelie: he looks so young, for being born at 40
GapFiller: cz thats not coincidentally how I found out abt Truxton this week
TehAmelie: "he was the world's oldest man. he was so old they gave him a gold watch when he was born."
GapFiller: some people are just born 40
GapFiller: Arn Anderson eg
: GapFiller as they say, linear time is hellish and uncaring
mericlese: This song is literally my happy place.
GapFiller: this is why we need to get on w/ transhumanist non linear approaches to time perception
GapFiller: like the Trafalmadorians from Slaughterhouse 5
RockPusher: The Road Quest soundtrack is Very Good™
GapFiller: speaking of which Cams Roko Bussy tweet was another highlight of the week so far gotta say
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Since we're counting his age in episodes, does that mean if (gods forbid) Checkpoint stops broadcasting, Beej will become immortal?
: @TheMerricat become? ...
Coloneljesus: 500th chill point! kinda!
TehAmelie: i'm working on a story about a superhero with gravity powers that allow her time dilation, if that helps
mericlese: The Road Quest Soundtrack might be the most listened to album in my collection
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Wait, what that weird bass drop sou
elkae: sorry didn't catch that, Paul
GapFiller: good evening Paul Beej Heather!
Raiz0k: Ooh, loved the miniatures!
GapFiller: ChillPoints dont need numbering
Coloneljesus: a notebook is fine
TheThirdTail: Notebooks are just retro laptops
Coloneljesus: you can put it on your lap
DiscordianTokkan: It technically fits on your lap
: Looks like someone didn't update Linkin for Chillpoint!
GapFiller: oooh a dead tree
RockPusher: I mean, Paul has a reason - wha'ts Beej's excuse?
accountmadeforants: It used to be called "Bring your 'top to work day" but people got confused.
Coloneljesus: how are you doing, Beej?
GapFiller: hows the dead tree notebook compare to an electronic notebook Heather
CAKHost: Beej is just mirroring Paul.
Invitare: when did Chillpoint even start? It just sort of... happened sometimes
: for Heather for the "notebook" pun
flouncy_magooo: @accountmadeforants I play with my switch in the bathroom all the time
: bad things can always be found
Coloneljesus: something Beej is happening
Coloneljesus: well, the big news was that the 500th episode of check point aired
Crokoking: youtube did suggest Ep1 today ^^
Raiz0k: Well, it was the Checkpoint of Checkpoint!
CAKHost: At most the ending might be an update but they couldn't have known in 2011.
: 2011 was 12 years ago
Invitare: cutting edge news
HorusFive: Such Courage
CAKHost: Breaking News!
GapFiller: we never did get Wes Borg inna CP+ after that one time
Drasvin: Irrelevant journalism
GapFiller: much as having Wes there for that first episode was a good bit of continuity w/ ENN
HorusFive: Yup, sounds like Lnk
smashy_030: link is a big dumbass tbf
Earthenone: rolls into pottery
CAKHost: Link, Chaos Good
RockPusher: Those pots aren't gonna break themselves
: thought occurs early CP+ in 2011 predates SCT involvement w/ LRR
GapFiller: pre Beej LRR eh
smashy_030: he decided to do a bajillion side quests for a motorbike instead of saving hyrule
CommanderPulsar: broken ceramic is *very* sharp.
JessKay: yeah link is only about 40kg short of being a himbo
Drasvin: Zelda gets shuffled off, because she has Wisdom, but not Courage or Power.
Invitare: so if Beej is Courage... is Heather Power? And Paul is Wisdom?
smashy_030: @Invitare paul is power, he owns 5 ps5's
CAKHost: Watching the video explains the news in a funny way.
EvilBadman: @smashy_030 That's just wisdom
GapFiller: iirc 100 was a blooper reel show
Raiz0k: Did you notice the looming anniversary at 420?
: Still delightful watching Graham absolutely wrecked by a Kathleen swerve
flouncy_magooo: Can't believe Checkpoint is already 500 years old
Drasvin: Deep catalogs
RockPusher: Kathleen I think drew the short straw there - those linkedin emails will go on for months!
: It's only easier if the sites you are looking up still exist
GapFiller: istr at one point the just doing stuff every week thing actually made it harder for LRR to get official Canadian Arts funding
CommanderPulsar: you don't want to burn your hands on the pan.
GapFiller: cool enough to pick up rather than so piping hot they mess w/ yr finger
EvilBadman: Someone put the takes on a windowsill to cool and you floated over like a cartoon cat
TehAmelie: it's hard to keep count of things while you're doing them regularly. the 100th episode of anything always tends to sneak up on you, or you miscount and embarrass yourself
Raiz0k: @GapFiller Why, because the funding was geared more to one-offs, or more to the "struggling artist" type?
RockPusher: They announced a bad thing. Update: they were surprised everyone was angry and unannounced the bad thing
Drasvin: It would have been funny if developments had occurred to one of the stories between the episode going up and today.
GapFiller: Raiz0k this is obv something for Paul himself to get into but iirc from them talkin abt it on old LRRcasts yeh basically Canadian Arts dont really get people just doing their thing all the time every week
GapFiller: tldr Arts funding is apparently geared more towards one off stuff as yr said
Raiz0k: Ah, thx.
LarkSachrosis: Data are neat
: Overton window of game sales.
Raiz0k: Oh, is that an incoming reference to the Dead Space 3 thing?
ContingentCat: lesson is keep expectations low
TheMerricat: And then there's Square Enix....
: @TheMerricat Oh you .
GapFiller: TheMerricat was gonna say it feels this is how yr get companies who MUST shift millions of sales just to get by
Coloneljesus: aren't most media sales like that?
smashy_030: we dont talk about wii u
CommanderPulsar: ttrpgs are like that--D&D is Call of Duty in this metaphor.
Mai_Andra: my mom had Wii Fit...
TehAmelie: funny story i just remembered, when they first made it, Iwata predicted they'd sell one billion Gameboys. think it's getting pretty close, if you count every generation?
Brozard: Party games vs campaign games
: wii sports is a toy, not a game
: Metroid Prime 3 and Xenoblade Chronicles
Eklinaar: People buy Nintendo consoles to play Nintendo games for the most part
smashy_030: looking at my switch shelf, yeah all exclusives
TheMerricat: There isn't a portable Nintendo thing other than the switch any more, is there chat... I 'just' realized that.
GraphicsContent subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 31 months!
: Thanks for subscribing, GraphicsContent! (Today's storm count: 17)
smashy_030: @TheMerricat 3ds is long dead now, the online store dies soon
CAKHost: The Steam Deck?
CAKHost: (Though I don't know how portable that system is)
CAKHost: (And to be fair, the Steam Deck probably isn't as well known as the Switch)
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie According to Auntie Wikipedia, still off by an order of magnitude. They seem to only count the OG console and all its derivatives, so if you count DSes and such as "generations", then, probably?
CAKHost: (At least I don't know if the Steam Deck has done anything to affect the Switch)
smashy_030: steam deck isnt really aiming for the same market
KeytarCat: @TehAmelie ooh, Auntie is good. I use "Professor"
BrowneePoints: Oh MAN is there some shovelware on Switch
smashy_030: @BrowneePoints calculator for nintendo switch, 3 bucks
TehAmelie: i remember seeing what the Nintendo seal of quality is worth on W+P one time
HorusFive: Speaking of SciFi Originals...
: I liked the WiiU
BrowneePoints: the first couple years of its life Nintendo was a hard ass on quality @TehAmelie
BrowneePoints: on the switch*
smashy_030: the wii u had like 5 games and 2 of those were zelda hds
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie It's a riff off "Uncle Google" which used to be a popular tongue-in-cheek phrasing locally.
GapFiller: people have done that
Invitare: what would happen when you got to the Epic lawsuits?
CAKHost: That's like living long enough to see a memorial someone made for you crumble in a way. Huh.
Raiz0k: @HorusFive Graham's story reminded me of Starship Troopers 2...
constablecrab: Reboot the series.
Sorator13: That seems like a quote: "We don't have to do any new content, right?"
TehAmelie: you could report on Star Citizen's weekly newsletter, you'll be set for life
Wolfstrike_NL: End of year news review
Invitare: PUBG, Epic or Fortnite maybe?
Earthenone: mad libs checkpoint edition
GapFiller: just getting to a point were they rehash their old stuff in order rather than doing anything new
Mai_Andra: preemptively do the 1000 episode next week
Raiz0k: @CAKHost Extremely metal, when recontextualized like that.
GapFiller: the PUBG era the Fork Knife era the Epic Apple era ect ect
GapFiller: the NFT era from last year
v_nome: Could be a gag for "We didn't record a Checkpoint this week, so here's this:"
Earthenone: those games you played
GapFiller: Earthenone !
Sorator13: but don't tell us which vidego game you're reviewing
Wolfstrike_NL: How much Norwegian kroner has sonics 30th anniversary actually raised now? Or is it to early to tell with Beej being unable to order from Nintendo?
Invitare: score every game "7.8 Too Much Water"
Raiz0k: Nooo, there's already one time sink on the Internet.
LRRbot: Comrade Unknown's Ideology Grounds
Raiz0k: Oh, I remember when Overwatch was big at LRR.
Earthenone: also pokemon go season
GapFiller: Earthenone truly time is a flat circle when 10 years after TGwP was largely shuttered by the rise of streaming here we are spitballing the return of TCwP ONSTREAM
iris_of_ether: Trying to make N-Fetch-T happen
BrowneePoints: I mean, game was good /shrug
ButButTheJesus: heather no!
GapFiller: there was literally a Crapshot abt that just last week(?)
CAKHost: Heather, Chaos Goblin
TehAmelie: heck, community's gas leak year was only funny as a joke about how BAD season 4 was
Raiz0k: @GapFiller Maybe they forgot. You know, due to the gas leak.
ghyllnox: And when gas leaks do happen, they tend to be a lot worse than *people doing stupid things*
RockPusher: It'd be nice to have official SteamPlay support
gnyrinn: Better integration with Proton, so we Linuxm'n can play MTGA easier.
Earthenone: they seem to be not puting a lot of effort in arena in general, all the new cards and boards seem to not have effects
LurkerSpine: WotC has many other MTG games on Steam
laundreydhull: they "slated" to Epic Games or some Epic Games promoting bit. don't we remember that?
RockPusher: *grumbles about the store purchases being broken in Proton*
laundreydhull: tis dumb. This Is Dumb.
IbunWest: I guess so people can play on Steam Deck?
laundreydhull: too unique.
: pc beta test was before they released to phones
Talin06: get the micro transaction cuts worked out
laundreydhull: unique for many reasons. Whether reasoning is appropriate is not, clear.
ContingentCat: legally distinct NFTs? still gross
laundreydhull: that's MTGO.
smashy_030: no we definitively have found that
IbunWest: The right approach is to not do it
laundreydhull: That's Arena.
IbunWest: Solved it
accountmadeforants: Digital collectability of Digital Objects, perhaps? Maybe in some Magical Online client?
GhostValv: not saying NFTs, but... what if NFTs
laundreydhull: otherwise, that's stupid.
GapFiller: this sounds like code for we invested too much already to just cut our losses so we gotta double down
Crokoking: you just can't trade them yet
smashy_030: @accountmadeforants with some sort of online non taxable currency perhaps?
Earthenone: mtgo has one, its fine
Sorator13: "we know you don't like NFTs, but we've invested a lot into NFTs, so we're gonna have to find a way to make NFTs but be able to call them not-NFTs"
laundreydhull: that's- and when TF2 was doing it and it somehow worked.
CAKHost: It's what happen with loot boxes.
CAKHost: Or micro transactions in paid games
BrowneePoints: Or how AI Art shills are calling themselves "Synthesis Designers" or something now
GapFiller: the evolution of doublespeak
smashy_030: @BrowneePoints i think prompt architect is my favourite
BrowneePoints: yea Prompt Architect or Synthesis Designer/Engineer something like that. and it makes my eyes roll
: it figures these people can be considered the canaries in the tech industry coal mine
smashy_030: good way of putting it
: dont fire them, send them to companies like WotC who are doing the thing without using the words
Raiz0k: There was also a ThreePanelSoul comic preceding all that by a couple of years going from "Uber but for cats" to "cats on the Blockchain".
TehAmelie: at least i'm guessing bitcoin has crashed enough that people have given up a lot of the mining efforts, haven't heard any reports of their disastrous energy consumption lately
ThorSokar: and another great quote of "Don't all of you have phones?"
Sorator13: @ThorSokar ugh, yes, same mindset
Wolfstrike_NL: aa yea, we all needed ubisoft quatz
Raiz0k: @TehAmelie True, but Bitcoin has also rebounded somewhat since the crash, so it's not like it's all over.
Tiber727: The easiest way to debunk the value of NFTs is to ask if they're going to make their digital games resellable.
RockPusher: Using blockchain where blockchain is not the most appropriate solution (which is describing most uses of blockchain)
smashy_030: @Tiber727 if only if only
GapFiller: TehAmelie all the current big crypto stories are on hostile takeovers within the space induced by outside pressures creating a crab mentality situ
RockPusher: gdi "wolf enhanced pants" still got me
: @RockPusher same
Raiz0k: @RockPusher Same, that was a surprisingly persistent reference xD.
CAKHost: Trying to apply real item worth to digital items. Doesn't quite work because of the digital aspect...
LurkerSpine: well, a lot of the mtgo value used to be tied to set redemption... I don't know how it works anymore
TheMerricat: What really gets me is the game companies really weren't implementing NFT's in any sort of real way (e.g. they were using their own 'currency' and what not) and now they are being rebranded to still be what they were but without being called NFTs, so what are they exactly? They never were 'NFT' and now they aren't actually called NFTs....
GapFiller: TheMerricat grifts
Lord_Hosk: @TehAmelie Its crashed enough that people aren't mining it right now, but the people who were pump and dumping it are still doing that, it keeps jumping then crashing
Earthenone: dont the secret lairs have special dlc codes in them nowadays? so very expesive dlc that comes with physical objects
TehAmelie: unenthusiastic: hooray
smashy_030: lmao, fair
Coloneljesus: aw poor beej xD
TemporallyAwry: That's a very good Beej quote for #NoContext
smashy_030: god if i dont get that feeling beej
ContingentCat: not trusting corporations too much is a good idea I think
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Yeah, that was especially frustrating for a lot of us, I think. The lack of practical decentralization reaaaally demonstrated how it's a marketing gimmick in any shape or form.
iris_of_ether: Oh yeah!
TheMerricat: D&D will be Creative Commons 'forever!' - till the next shareholder call...
GapFiller: El Capitan: thats one sneaky kid!
Malazim: Diablo 3 at launch kinda had the same market as everyone is wanting and that went “well”
CAKHost: "We are going to go with BananaGrams" NO DX
Lord_Hosk: Wotc will never reprint the reserve list, except for all the times they have reprinted the reserve list.
CodeIndigo: YES. We need to just repeatedly slime people who say NFT
TehAmelie: i like Qi's "obviousness klaxon"
smashy_030: @ContingentCat and product i cant hold in my hands makes me anxious, EULA is scawy
GapFiller: The Patriots aka The La Li Lu Le Lo
CodeIndigo: "Our blockchain strategy is (extended airhorn blast)"
smashy_030: beej nooooo

CAKHost: Beej needed to clear the drain.
TheMerricat: So I really DID hear "Named cassette".....
RockPusher makes ZX Spectrum tape loading noises
EvilBadman: Or Blockbuster writes the store number on them
DeM0nFiRe: Haha nicew
GhostValv: that's fantastic
smashy_030: thats sweet
Raiz0k: Oh look, an FX trading advert.
DeM0nFiRe: That is neat
Raiz0k: That's so great!
: Now THIS is the kind of big-data-collection I can get behind. It's wholesome
: Human stories museum
smashy_030: now thats how i would do it
CAKHost: A lot of my young reasons was to try and get more money for other video games. And then having regrets of doing so D:
gnyrinn: I didn't catch the name of that museum, but I gather that it isn't the British Museum.
: i wrote my name on tape, and put the tape on the cart
smashy_030: @gnyrinn nah yknow that famous japanese section of the uk?
Raiz0k: @gnyrinn What gave that away, that they're actually giving the stuff in their stock back?
TheMerricat: Same here Beej.
: I always kept the boxes... I could never write on the cartridge - that would "ruin" it...
: gnyrinn unlike the BM, I doubt these cartridges left their original owners due to colonialism
CAKHost: And I never put my name physically on a cart. Most if my old save files might still have my name assuming the cart wasn't wiped...
TheMerricat: My parents finally forced me to get rid of all my computer game boxes when we moved my senior year of high school, I'm still sad about that.
DoodlestheGreat: An ET cartridge signed by Liberace!
: Road Quest 3 - Japan or Bust
CodeIndigo: I'm like 99% positive that someone has my lovingly stickerbombed copy of Secret of Mana.
ButButTheJesus: @TemporallyAwry all but 1 episode is the plane ride
RockPusher: Shinkansen Quest
Earthenone: yeah i stopped after n64/gbc since the cases became more usable as storage
smashy_030: @TemporallyAwry dont you remember how road quest went? its just bust
: versus US "finders keepers"
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Fortunately, with mine, I managed to stall them through the tactic of "well, OK, fold them". But they've also thrown away things that would be (very minor) historical artifacts right now, so I feel ya.
Wolfstrike_NL: Remember road quests alley find?
: wouldent roadquest japan just be a training montage
smashy_030: did we ever find out why the fuck mario golf was there?
Mai_Andra: "foreign exchange student"
TheStarwind subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 6 months!
: Thanks for subscribing, TheStarwind! (Today's storm count: 19)
DoodlestheGreat: Great, a video game version of "To Tell The Truth."
BrowneePoints: OH the Road Quest game!?
TheMerricat: The Roadquest game@!
Wolfstrike_NL: It's here!!!
smashy_030: why was it therrrrrre
CAKHost: It lives!
JDogg2K4: Switch cases are kinda useless.
smashy_030: who put mario golf in the middle of canada
: stolen rental goods!
Joalni: Thank you, James, for gifting that to Beej.
: inb4 the back of the cover insert has some evil spell written on it
CodeIndigo: I love that plastic cases are a thing now
iris_of_ether: "Have to"
CAKHost: A piece of Road Quest
smashy_030: does canada have its own region code?
EvilBadman: Are you insinuating the video games migrate?
GapFiller: EvilBadman they can be carried
CodeIndigo: @smashy_030 Not unless it needs to have French-language data
BrowneePoints: With Taryon Edgerton right?
Invitare: the WHAT??
richard_ermen: Suprisingly a good pitch
Earthenone: who is playing the 4x1?
TheMerricat: wait... I thought the concept of a tetris movie was a JOKE.
LurkerSpine: @Invitare A movie based on the history of tetris. It's about the Russian creator really
richard_ermen: The trailer is not about the game itself, but about how the game was brought to the Gameboy
Joalni: Chat, if you haven't seen it, watch the Tertis trailer. It might actually not be awful.
: @richard_ermen ah. ok.
GapFiller: heard abt this thru Moviebob talkin abt Robert Maxwell on the bird site
BrowneePoints: yea it's about the politics behind the game actually getting made
Laserbeaks_Fury: In Soviet Russia.....Block drop *you*....TETRIS
CAKHost: I think Penny Arcade did a stripe on that too?
GapFiller: it says something when Ghislaine is only the second most awful person in that family
smashy_030: russian history but with tetris
TehAmelie: videogame adaptations are out, videogame biopics are in
LurkerSpine: The Gaming Historian on Youtube has a very good video about it
gnyrinn: If that movie does not contain "I am the man who arranges the blocks!" I will be bitterly disappointed.
Laserbeaks_Fury: They made a BATTLESHIP movie, so
Lysander_salamander: it's a heist movie?
TemporallyAwry: I mean, we can say "propaganda" here too, right?
BrowneePoints: Alexey Pajitnov had to go through hoops yea
Joalni: *Soviet* Russia, the one place possibly worse than modern Russia.
Bruceski: Heavily dramatized, but Tetris was actually basically smuggled out of Russia
CodeIndigo: The scene with "When was the last time our apartment was this quiet?!" killed me
Raiz0k: @Laserbeaks_Fury They made a friggin' Emoji movie (sorry for the reminder).
smashy_030: tetris but its a movie about reagan
: the actual real story of Tetris or a Battleship esque Tetris movie
CodeIndigo: @smashy_030 technically about Gorbachev
BrowneePoints: I mean...wasn't Tetris the first?
smashy_030: @smashy_030 can we settle on a stalin based middle ground?
CaptainSpam: Look, it was the 90s. THERE WAS TIME.
TemporallyAwry: @smashy_030 throw in Thatcher for the trifecta of pain.
Laserbeaks_Fury: The prequel to Threes
JusticeJuice: World event marketing?
ThorSokar: um, Dr. Mario?
Raiz0k: Oh no Paul, I can tell you for a fact copyright law did not work in the (former by this time) Soviet block until the early 90's at the earliest. And that's nominally.
JusticeJuice: Capitalism loves things it can use.
smashy_030: ok but have you ever played hatris
GapFiller: Raiz0k tbf Russia has always been a law unto itself re copyright
GapFiller: their attitudes to copyright are just not like Western attitudes to copyright
TheMerricat: Perhaps the guy behind the push to get the rights was so inspired by the game they wanted to honor the person who made it despite whether or not they could 'steal' it if they wanted
Mai_Andra: I had a portable game system as a kid that was just tetris, though I don't remember what it was called.
Brozard: How many iterations of Sokoban are there?
BrowneePoints: Alexey Pajitnov I think created the game
Alex_Frostfire: Plenty of match-three games, too.
smashy_030: @Mai_Andra i had an awful lcd game knockoff of pacman called "duck monster"
Raiz0k: @GapFiller Yeah, I'm just accentuating that this applied to the whole Soviet sphere/Warsaw Pact area. Which means - you can safely assume - that it was even more so in Russia itself.
LastCenturion: Gaming Historian put out a 1 hour documentary on the story of tetris 5 years ago, its really good
recursioning: Possibly already said in chat but there was a rights fight with a British game company but that I believe that company negotiated with the wrong party and their rights were stripped
: @LastCenturion right, thanks for the reminder
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat Are you implying people have a semblance of moral integrity? Heresy!
CodeIndigo: Willy Wonka's Game Boy
: 500 WOOOO 500 EPISODES OF CHECKPOINT!
BrowneePoints: for chat Yamauchi is the old pres
GapFiller: OH Hiroshi Yamaouchi onscreen is reason to watch that movie right there
BrowneePoints: who made the decision to switch from cards to games
Metric_Furlong: it's true, they are
smashy_030: dont say her name
lissomelark: has anyone told paul had badly the pro tour coverage techs need his help
superherofae: yeah, the developers of all the content are under the LGBT umbrella
TheMerricat: "Curated by KRITIQAL All proceeds split evenly between creators."
BrowneePoints: "A bundle of over $300 worth of magic themed games, music, zines, and other things from LGBTQ+ creators."
TehAmelie: i played So May It Be, a little dating game involving at least one trans witch. can recommend
superherofae: There's also a $10 version, for those who want to support the bundle but cannot afford the full price
LordZarano: 69 items for $60
lissomelark: itch.up bundles are always sweet
Juliamon: It's good for bees!
CAKHost: Ender Bees?!
ButButTheJesus: THE BEEEEEES
smashy_030: its literally the place but japan meme
RebekahWSD: I might get back into Minecraft. I loved the modded cherry blossoms
RebekahWSD: Now I don't have to mod fiddle
CataclysmicReverb: A new peaceful biome?
CAKHost: Pink wood!
Juliamon: Monsters show up based on light level, only one biome is safe from them
ghyllnox: A peaceful biome shouldn't have monsters spawn, like the mushroom biome
: All the leaves and ground petals also count as flowers for the bees - so it's a really happy biome for bees
CataclysmicReverb: Ah, so not a new mooshroom biome... dang.
Raiz0k: @CataclysmicReverb Yeah, exactly, a new peaceful biome is big. Isn't it like the second one after mushrrom islands?
Raiz0k: Oh, I stand corrected.
CataclysmicReverb: @Raiz0k Yeah. We can blame the devs for bad communication, or ask them to make it right
CataclysmicReverb: Then again, not being an island might make it hard
TemporallyAwry: Opposite side of the ocean too - different temperatures because the water spins.
CAKHost: They are the first to warn.
Raiz0k: @Raiz0k I have a feeling that can be blamed mostly for dev/employee retention.
erloas: amount of ocean and the predominate wind directions
smashy_030: and in the uk, everything brown
BrowneePoints: I live in a place where we get full fall colors. It's a lovely thing
Spanked42: You guys don't have thunderstorms?
ButButTheJesus: all the leaves are piiiiink, and the sky is grey...
GapFiller: smashy_030 not true we also have grey
Bruceski: We had a cluster of cherry trees at college, and I always remember one time some guy was just standing in the middle of them in a Japanese-style wrap looking stoicly smug.
smashy_030: thats more than my rig
smashy_030: what the fuck is that
CAKHost: Awww wok at it!
SnackPak_: so much thermal dissipation
Coloneljesus: that's 2 more fans than a RTX4090!
TehAmelie: my city is called the city of birches. guess what colors we get
CAKHost: It's so baby!
Raiz0k: @smashy_030 Unfortunately, that's moving to continental Europe due to climate change. Large cloud cover, and too warm to have snow.
CaptainSpam: Yeah, I thought the 5 was dead when 3dfx went under...
TheWooglie: if you have the right port
mowdownjoe: Such cooling. wow
flamewave7: I perked up when I heard voodoo
smashy_030: @GapFiller and sometimes black!
Eklinaar: Yooo Mechwarrior 3 will look so sick on that
TheMerricat: wait that article I linked was someone MAKING their own Voodoo 5...
smashy_030: @smashy_030 last time i saw snow i cant even recall really, i was like 4 maybe?
: It was ahead of it's time
Raiz0k: @Eklinaar "Sensors online [...]"
ButButTheJesus: for the time, yeah
Coloneljesus: 450W TDP before overclock. 600W OC
CAKHost: Granted, my laptop needs two laptop power ports so I guess that isn't so surprising... but still back then!
mowdownjoe: Screw Nvidia and their 4000 series
smashy_030: graphics cards were a lot less space age back then eh
smashy_030: just spank the fans right on the pcb
CAKHost: Wittle fans
Lord_Hosk: 4090s don't need a separate power plug, they need a separate power supply with its own outlet on a separate cirtute.
Raiz0k: @smashy_030 Oh, they were space age relative to any other (non-professional) expansion card.
CAKHost: Don't even have a heat sink on it. Geez!
CAKHost: Graphic cards were once slim, who knew!
smashy_030: someone didnt read the stickers
gnyrinn: They really didn't want this resold, did they?
LordZarano: I think this card might be for resale...
BrowneePoints: Mine has 2
smashy_030: 4090s have like 4?
Coloneljesus: higher end 2 or 3
iris_of_ether: @lord_hosk oh god, wouldn't that run the risk of like a noisy ground loop if you weren't careful?
mowdownjoe: Much bigger fans.
Coloneljesus: @smashy_030 no, 2.
EvilBadman: Yeah but they're the size of a switch almost now
CataclysmicReverb: mid end are 2
Lord_Hosk: Back in the day 1, today 2 for low end 3-4 for high end
: Well no, you can see the passive ones, plus additional ones under the fans probably .
ButButTheJesus: beeg skookum?
smashy_030: @Coloneljesus google agrees with you
Coloneljesus: @smashy_030 at least the founders.
teabread_: is skookum a canada word or a AvE word
smashy_030: 3 on the third party cards
CAKHost: Wait just those parts or the whole thing???
erloas: 3 different place holders for required FCC labels
CAKHost: Do you have to take them out of the sale price?!
Coloneljesus: @teabread_ it has existed before AvE

smashy_030: @Raiz0k its a slab of wood
RockPusher checks if Ghost Trick has been listed on Steam yet
BrowneePoints: it's a Nice Freaking Tablet
: did you buy all the collectors editions? Cant find any
Raiz0k: @Raiz0k Loaf of bread?
EvilBadman: We don't even know the dimensions or composition of the wood
iris_of_ether: Not that far from the truth honestly lol
mowdownjoe: @rockpusher Very tempted to get that for my Steam Deck.
GapFiller: yeh it feels Ian or Alex can gin up better than this inna pinch
smashy_030: they could have done a sheika slate or something
CAKHost: I want it to be all an image on particle board with a water mark still visible somewhere.

BrowneePoints: the Battlechasers folks did a Ruined King rpg
BrowneePoints: Project L is a tag fighter
JDogg2K4: But you dial M for murder, not mage
BrowneePoints: there's a Nunu Platformer coming, there was a Ziggs Rhythm Game/Runner
BrowneePoints: there was supposed to be an old school point and click adventure game from Riot soon too
LurkerSpine: Project L looks sick, but who knows if it'll ever actually come out. It's been in dev for freakin' ever
BrowneePoints: and a Time mechanic Platformer with Ekko
niccus: hi-bit is nice, but is it little- or big-endian
Juliamon: To me that sounds like Octopath-style
Bruceski: High-bit pixels, 2048 of them across to be precise
Lysander_salamander: probably a re-name of something that already exists
TheMerricat: High bit is a thing.
BrowneePoints: that's a platformer with Nunu
Raiz0k: Clearly most of these words are reciprocally redundant.
BrowneePoints: that was a platformer with Ekko
BrowneePoints: and a Moonlighter game about Sylas. Neat
Lysander_salamander: Or Moon-seekers
LordZarano: Like Titan Souls

GapFiller: Tobal No 1 even had Akira Toriyama art
iris_of_ether: There's probably some ancient Enix game that would work, too
heartofgoldfish: oh my god Shadow of the Collosus Washer

Laserbeaks_Fury: Setting up the feast

Brozard: Powerwash the Spencer Mansion
BrowneePoints: Filthy River Spirit
mowdownjoe: @iris_of_ether Live A Live? The rename was great!
TheMerricat: @TheMerricat My assumption is that anything that is 'pixel art' but involving more than what say an SNES could do. So higher resolution, or more colors, etc.

BrowneePoints: if we can't give Radish Spirit a hug no dice
smashy_030: especially with how ghibli animate gunk, ghibli goop is great

niccus: i think that'd be the escort mode in tfc
BrowneePoints: @Raiz0k they actually did make a dating sim
BrowneePoints: but mostly making a joke how 90% of the DBD playerbase is LGBTQ @Raiz0k
Raiz0k: @BrowneePoints Ohhh, that!
smashy_030: feddy fazbear?
: won amogus by almost doing nothing?
BrowneePoints: Freddy, Ghostface
ogundiety: I think it's something that DBD is basically all queer streamers now. It's great!
GapFiller: horror elements
LarkSachrosis: Pyramidhead is a fave of Bens
BrowneePoints: Pyramidhead, with nerfed ass cheeks

Raiz0k: @BrowneePoints Oh, as in the dating is done in the prep chat :)?

Joalni: Presumably a very bad business plan.
CodeIndigo: @Brozard put that on cafepress stat
Bruceski: You know in the 90s those people who went to schools and did yo-yo tricks? That but with kites.
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's okay, they're Brazilian
Driosenth: kite flying business (read: drone takedown service)
Lysander_salamander: probably one of those "make a donation, get a kite?"
BrowneePoints: Grapple, Garrote, Goreboss @Brozard
Raiz0k: Proxy for social medial account that makes photos of flown kites?
TheMerricat: @BrowneePoints Is that a gem bedazzeled half-gas mask???
Brozard: @BrowneePoints This is why punchup is important
smashy_030: its to stop bombers from spotting the civilians
gnyrinn: Or it's metaphorical kite-flying. You are the guy who puts ideas out there.
CodeIndigo: On a realistic point-- maybe they do advertising for local businesses?
Raiz0k: Is the kite-flying business on the blockchain?
Snowcookies: Could be it's teaching ppl to fly kites
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's just the end of Mary Poppins
Lysander_salamander: Like para-gliders
BrowneePoints: Yea it certainly looks like a diamond encrusted half gas mask @TheMerricat
