LRRbot: One must STFU to properly explore.
RockPusher: LRRbot feeling sassy today
Metric_Furlong: bot's had eneough of our tomfoolery
TehAmelie: it's gonna be dungeon crawling in stony silence from now on
: so, for some other types of tomfoolery, there's a Very Normel Poll open for people who want to exercise power over the order of my to-watch list https://poll-maker.com/QC5K9DO3Q
LoadingReadyRun: Stony silence and stony violence
DoodlestheGreat: Everybody must get stoned?
Metric_Furlong: (all 4 Furlong Points™ still available for anyone playing the guessing game, although given that this selection has some incredibly deep cuts I don't know if any of them are likely to get claimed)
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 1:48 PM
Metric_Furlong: DoodlestheGreat might be a bit early in the day for the canadians
Juliamon: Never too early
Metric_Furlong: unless Canada's like here, where people will apparently start spliffing up at 10AM on weekdays
v_nome: !findquote shenanigan
LRRbot: Quote #6178: "I detect the presence of shenanigans." —Cameron [2019-06-28]
Metric_Furlong: "I didn't know weed was legal in the uk" it's not
Metric_Furlong: and yet
Juliamon: legality never stopped anyone
TehAmelie: haha Lawful Paladins should have Detect Shenanigans instead of Detect Evil
Metric_Furlong: a law only matters if it's enforced, etc.
beowuuf: cure light humour
v_nome: My paladin is Lawful Humourless and will abide no shenanigans, tomfoolery, OR jackanapes.
TehAmelie: what about flimflam?
v_nome: Surprisingly lenient
: lay on flams gets rid of it by heavy armoured religious fanatic to go vertical on it
TehAmelie: i had to look up flimflam now. it has very helpful synonyms: twaddle, bosh
beowuuf: to flimflam i to hoodwink someone too when used as a verb
incslayer: i thought Flimflam was a character in The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo
TehAmelie: the most rakish kind of highjinx
beowuuf: to hoodwink and to pull the wool over someone's eyes presumably both get derived from hawkery
Metric_Furlong: main screen turn on
beowuuf: no music>?
Juliamon: No music.
incslayer: no music.
Metric_Furlong: the music exists only in your imagination
: Chillpoint declaring they aren't messing around with the schedule today
incslayer: now Music
beowuuf: thank you!
Metric_Furlong: oh no, my imagination
incslayer: @Metric_Furlong ahh your Imagination is spreading to other people

PharaohBender27: *I* liked the Episode 500 thumbnail, Heather
RockPusher: The keepers of the wiki are presumably unfooled

Metric_Furlong: give us your videogame views about videogame news

GapFiller: cz clearly its a tactic that WORKS
Commodore_Perry_GG: "Oh bother..."
BusTed: Winnie the Pooh
: don't buy them though, they're a trick
shurtal: it's like trying to google knuckles and getting the echidna
shurtal: human knuckles doesn't help
GapFiller: ohhh Heathers real quiet compared to Beej and Paul
RockPusher: The media love them a hacker stereotype - it makes infosec PR harder
Tiber727: @shurtal I imagine "human knuckles" also has a chance of traumatizing.
Lysander_salamander: it should be "honey trap" though, because it's to catch things
shurtal: @Tiber727 100%
Lysander_salamander: they used the wrong word
PharaohBender27: @RockPusher We're mandated to do annual trainings and "microtrainings" about digital security, and hoo boy the amount of stock footage of "hackers" those videos use
kusinohki: not the house of lies, but maybe the garage of lies?
Commodore_Perry_GG: And they swarm past you, zip back and stop, asking "Which way'd he go?" and you point the wrong way.
Lysander_salamander: I'm annoyed they used the wrong word
RockPusher: PharaohBender27 *eyes stack of black infosec conference hoodies guiltily*
TheMerricat: @Lysander_salamander It's not the wrong word, the idea is you are leaving a pot of honey out for someone to try to take. The pot itself is not a trap, the trap is built around the pot.
PharaohBender27: @RockPusher The 2021 annual training video had a shot of, I shit you not, a guy in a Guy Fakes mask at a computer. I audibly guffawed.
Wicker_Guide: @PharaohBender27 did you get the video of the guy in the hoody and disco light-up mask?
PharaohBender27: @Wicker_Guide I don't think so - doesn't ring a bell, at least

TheMerricat: Aggressive anti-virus programs _might_ have had the possibility to access the 'hidden' memory area, outside of that nothing else would have a legitimate reason to be scanning your client's memory area _while_ you were playing.

GapFiller: it figures TF2 came out a lil too early in that regard
TheMerricat: 'still being maintained' as in they release translation patches once every 6 months.
Robot_Bones: the tf2 hat generation team
GapFiller: presumably had TF2 arrived even slightly later itd have been an esports mainstay
CaptainSpam: I mean, TF2 is also, like, a gazillion years old at this point...
rubikdarkwill: Most DotA2 LANs are provided PCs

saucemaster5000: I like to use kraft cheese to make things LESS fancy
Drasvin: A whole town of Mac and Cheese
TheMerricat: Craft On! - The catchphrase of the lesser known fifth member of the Fantastic Four.
AveryCorvus: It's hard to escape the genre
Laserbeaks_Fury: It adds some stakes to pvp
GapFiller: oh snap Beej
: Clearly they're trying to get to play their games on ...One More? again
TheMerricat: Is it really any different than normal battle royale other than you get to keep what you 'kill'?
SocraticMethod: Below zero is 1.5
Wicker_Guide: yes, because the goal is not to kill @TheMerricat
Commodore_Perry_GG: Mutliplayer please?
Commodore_Perry_GG: I wanna rock out in the giant sub with my friends
Laserbeaks_Fury: I would assume its a different planet'
matthaus_c: a big monster bit my sea truck and I liked it
saucemaster5000: Dad would rather play Scorn
ghyllnox: I like that you're not actually supposed to kill everything, it's a nice change of pace
Wicker_Guide: Claustrophobic Thassalaphobia, the viewing experience
GapFiller: taking it back to the OG ENN w/ that delivery yeh
Izandai: You typically go in with some stuff.
Laserbeaks_Fury: that the ante
: Tarkov is a survival shooting & looting game. You go into a raid to collect gear, kill other players (and AI/NPC scavengers) and complete quests to earn better gear. If you make it to an extraction point without getting killed you get to keep what you collected and you can sell it to make $. BUT if you die you lose all the gear. For more in depth details check out https://bit.ly/2zGqu0y
Manae: Division 1 also had the one hour drop -to-extraction mode
MAPBoardgames: Hunt: Showdown is about killing a boss and leaving with its skull.
SocraticMethod: Are we not using rogue-lite anymore?
GhostValv: quests that involve a very specific task
Laserbeaks_Fury: It sounds interesting, but I don't enjoy games where I explicitly have to give other player permission to grief me.
Izandai: @SocraticMethod Were we ever?
fiftymcnasty: Hunt Showdown?
SocraticMethod: @SocraticMethod We were at least 1-2 years ago, see Dead Cells
Tiber727: @SocraticMethod I do, but most people have never seen an actual roguelike, and don't know or care.
Mai_Andra: Dead By Daylight?
Wicker_Guide: not really, since the original purpose of the distinction has kind of been lost @SocraticMethod i.e. can you think of a recent game that uses run-based gameplay with no inter-run progression?
: Turns out killing Santa is bad for your reputation
Izandai: @SocraticMethod Well, I wasn't.
SocraticMethod: @Wicker_Guide Caves of Qud, Project Zomboid, Cogmind. But I haven't been looking at new roguelikes lately

TemporallyAwry: "taking pictures of people who dies ... for insurance money"
Izandai: I've never seen a roguelike with no meta-progression.
Laserbeaks_Fury: That looked way more Fortniteish
: now i wanna watch LRR folks play Phasmophobia
: Well typo, but yeah.
gualdhar: @jacqui_lantern234 good news! there should be some replays on Youtube
Laserbeaks_Fury: Pokemon is getting close to MMO
Wicker_Guide: @SocraticMethod yeah the most recent game you named there was from 2017...
: The Super Switch
RockPusher: Breaking News: Hardware Company Makes Hardware
Tiber727: @Izandai At this point, the games without metaprogression are traditional roguelikes anyway. We've somehow gone back to the old definition witout realizing it.
: @gualdhar ive seen them all, hence why i want more
Laserbeaks_Fury: The Bait
Laserbeaks_Fury: sequel to The Switch
: or for Samsung TV
LordZarano: Exited to have NSO on my Playdate
: @GhostValv reading that hurt me
Tiber727: @Wicker_Guide I wish. I would enjoy roguelites or action roguelikes except that I have come to absolutely despise metaprogression.

Laserbeaks_Fury: I would say give Hades a shake
jacqui_lantern234: "and [redacted]" is a meaningless statement and i hate how click-baity things can be
Wicker_Guide: @Tiber727 I'm curious, why? you don't like the sense that you need to build to a powerful start?
saucemaster5000: Nintendo invented joy cons which scientifically make you joyful, but they are too expensive to mass market
Wicker_Guide: @Tiber727 for clarity, the gaming conventional wisdom I've absorbed is that metaprogression gets rid of what is assumed to be the ultimate player feel-bad: that a loss mid-run results in time wasted
: You know what you did Heather.
Tiber727: @Wicker_Guide Because metaprogression is waste of time grind to drive player engagement, and it teaches players that the game isn't about accepting failure and getting better, but about turning a game into a job to grind meta for bigger numbers.
RockPusher: "Cool idea, shame that it breaks too easily" and "Cool idea, but we'd have to double the price" are very real constraints
Magnifisquatch: how about a Wyrmwood statement, huh?
saucemaster5000: Huh, Nintendo announced Silksong for 2023 except for everyone named Heather. Rude.
Wicker_Guide: @Tiber727 ... "getting better" is grinding the meta though
Izandai: @Tiber727 wat
Tiber727: @Wicker_Guide It's a video game. All time you spend is either enjoyed or wasted depending on your view. Dying isn't discouragement, in the same way that winning every match in a fighting game would be boring.
RockPusher: Or you redact the main document, but forget to redact the appendices
Laserbeaks_Fury: They should have just dacted it properly in tyhe first place
Izandai: @Tiber727 ...Yeah no. It feels bad to get most of the way through a run and then die and have not made any progress on anything.
Wicker_Guide: @Tiber727 That process is the same with or without meta progression though. what meta progression does is codify the process of getting better with in-game indicators, instead of out-of-game player knoweldge
Wicker_Guide: @Tiber727 I should clarify, grind and skinner boxing are real and problematic in gaming. I just don't think that meta progression is either necessarily aligned with those things, nor do I think not having it would prevent either of them
Juliamon: Chat, could we move the roguelite play loop discussion to PMs or Discord soon?
RockPusher: Am everything okay?
korvys: Earthquake? Godzilla?
Juliamon: There's nothing wrong with it, but it's got nothing to do with what's being talked about on stream right now.
Tiber727: @Wicker_Guide Because roguelites have changed a genre from player mastery to JRPG grinding. It's like X-COM. There's randomness in X-COM, but the game is fundamentally about playing the odds in the face of the unknown. And by the same token, the risk of losing soldiers in X-COM adds weight to your decisions.
ghyllnox: A really big truck?
omdorastrix: Is moonbase need antacid?
GapFiller: Nintendo have always been much more financially sensible than Sega
GapFiller: and more sensible in general
sarsum33: a really long truck?
RockPusher: Pistacio is trying to make things more efficient again…
GapFiller: for one example Nintendo have never hired anyone on the calibre of Bernie Stolar
: im under the general assumption that nintendo is ALWAYS developing their next console
Tiber727: @Izandai That's player mindset. The devs certainly aren't setting out to make you feel bad for playing.
: Sega and Sony chose Bernie Stolar Nintendo chose Reggie
GapFiller: theres a lesson there

SquareDotCube: Still wish they went with Super Switch. Retro and catchy at the same time
: Helluva a site name that
jacqui_lantern234: @SquareDotCube but which one? is it Soup or Switch *ba tum tss*
Tiber727: @Wicker_Guide Can't read chat and respond at the same time, especially if not pinged. Will stop now.
korvys: The last entry in that list should have just been an unaltered WiiU
saucemaster5000: Please Announce WiiU2UwU
jacqui_lantern234: @saucemaster5000 you have no idea how happy this name would make me
NoOne_OfConsequence: Is the next Nintendo console even guaranteed to be Switch-like in the first place?
saucemaster5000: it would be one step closer to nirvana on earth
Juliamon: Tiber727 As a general recommendation, if you find yourself in a situation where responding is prioritized over reading the rest of chat, that probably means it's better suited to be taken elsewhere.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Switch 2: Electric Booguwu
Juliamon: Twitch chat is not a good place for deep discussion.
jacqui_lantern234: @NoOne_OfConsequence maybe, maybe not. and i think thats kinda the point
Eklinaar: I liked the WiiU, would love to see something like it actually get a good game catalog.
Izandai: I'd be very surprised if the next Nintendo console isn't hybrid home/portable.
Juliamon: my Switch conundrum is that I only like to play games handheld, but the Switch is still a little too heavy for me to do that comfortably.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Virtual Boy 2
saucemaster5000: Yeah I miss smaller handhelds. Didn't like the Gamegear as a kid either
: Do not leave the console on when you put it in the thermal envelope - don't want to set the envelope on fire
RockPusher: Now you're thinking with funnels!
Mai_Andra: I would think focus the design for hand-held, then add an official adapter/controller package to output to television.
Laserbeaks_Fury: those joycons would looooong
: Chat, what we really need is a handheld that is meant to be held diagonally

Mai_Andra: GBA SP is still my favorite console.
Mai_Andra: A portable console that doubles as a skateboard.
Tiber727: Personally, I wish they put more of a GPU in the dock, so if you play it docked you get better graphics.
RockPusher: Rovio saying the quiet part out loud
: what is this paying for a game once bullshit?
SocraticMethod: I am angry. Angry about BIRDS.
saucemaster5000: "Sorry, we realized the birds were too angry in this one"
Juliamon: A remake because *fans wanted it*
Laserbeaks_Fury: How much more money do they think they are going to make by removing their own product?
TheMerricat: that and it's not full of microtransactions
: Also, anyone remember Crush the Castle, aka the game that came out before Angry Birds but more or less used the same mechanics?
badpandabear: Hey good job developers on such a good remake...we're going to stop selling it because you did too good of a job
lord_wertornion: did they remake it because the original doesn't run anymore on modern phones?
Pteraspidomorphi: No Chill Birds?
matthaus_c: Angry Birds Human Revolution
saucemaster5000: @PharaohBender27 I do!
RockPusher checks his phone to see what Birds' Angry he has in his Google Play list
: Gesundheit, !
GhostValv: salud x 2
ContingentCat: gesundhitt beej
: many mobile devs (probably): doesnt anyone understand to the only way to make money here is to continuously gouge players for every penny w/ microtransactions and other video games as a service bullshit
ghyllnox: Bless you!
korvys: If it was selling so much it was affecting other game, clearly *that* is what people want
TokenMickus: prosit x2
Wicker_Guide: I would also be curious how they calculated that allowing users to buy angry birds was pulling potential dolphins and whales off the microtransaction systems. I am skeptical of that analysis
TheMerricat: So the real question in my head, is it really that people were playing the 'old' game too much or is it that people have stopped spending as much on the 'new' games - regardless if they were playing the old game.
saiarcot895: @TheMerricat the phrasing of the community manager's post seems like it's a case of the former
Laserbeaks_Fury: We're also not talking about a huge multiplayer game where you need to keep up a certain playerbase. Like shutting down Overwatch sucked, but that made *some* sense to get everyone into the same pool for OW2
saucemaster5000: There was a brief moment where "Angry Birds 2" was the best reviewed video game movie adaptation
TheMerricat: @TheMerricat Oh, I know what the _company_ is claiming, what I'm wondering is if it's accurate (i.e. is the CM blowing smoke, intentionally or not)
matthaus_c: John Wordle
: surely somebody somewhere has floated a Wordle movie
Tiber727: @TheMerricat It sounded more to me like it wasn't so much that the old game was too popular, more that they wanted to remove a reference point of how much worse they've gotten.
saucemaster5000: Wordle movie -- basically Memento 2
GreatWahooney: @saucemaster5000 would Memento 2 be a prequel?
Wicker_Guide: I know someone who has been involved recently in tech VC finance, and microtransaction-based systems are very popular in that crowd. I'm kind of wondering if Rovio is doing this to make their model more attractive to talk to potential investors?
TheMerricat: cue Stephanie Sterling's - Companies don't want money, they want ALL the money.
matthaus_c: @GreatWahooney yes, and also a sequel
saucemaster5000: @saucemaster5000 The thing is Guy pierce doesn't know and neither does the audience
TehAmelie: they could just remake Memento chronologically. the secret straight-chronological cut of the movie is not a very good movie so there's room
Wicker_Guide: @saucemaster5000 "wait, I get to play not the bad guy again?" - Guy Pierce, probably, before a random passerby decides he still has a punchable chin
Laserbeaks_Fury: Car dealers don't make money selling you one car you can use for 20 years
ContingentCat: dang captialism again
korvys: They can keep making new games - I'd just prefer if the new games are in the model of "Pay for the game. End of transaction."
Laserbeaks_Fury: Proof of concepts
SquareDotCube: I'm kind of, at the point, think it's better to cherry-pick investors than trying to go ham and make ludicrous statistics to get all the investment money.
SquareDotCube: Can't wait for the mod that puts it back!
JessKay: load-bearing dev room
saucemaster5000: The room was the keystone to the rest of the code's arch
SocraticMethod: You'd think so, but Destiny 2 has environments that were unaccessible to players 2 years ago

Laserbeaks_Fury: 80% of my Vault of Glass Experience was figuring out ways to break the Vault of Glass and get out of bounds
SocraticMethod: @sammy6345 Coconut was a urban legend. TF2 has been decompiled and there is no coconut
Drasvin: Mysterious load bearing assets.
SquareDotCube: sounds like an odd case of EM feedback
Bearudite: maybe its a capacitive thingie like a touchlamp
CranstonSnord: google the 'obfuscated C contest'

LurkerSpine: Mega Man X is not the same person as Mega Man
TehAmelie: i recognize these levels
saucemaster5000: I do love this
SocraticMethod: Mega Man Battle Network is a RPG
Drasvin: Not Megaman 10. Megaman X is a seperate series from Classic Megaman

Wicker_Guide: Oh, like an IRL pro driver, not an esports pro driver?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is she like the ghost in Mario Kart
matthaus_c: send it to the DMV and make it the new bar for licenses
SocraticMethod: Closed courses are easy for self-driving cars, it's the open world that s problematic
Laserbeaks_Fury: GT Spohie also someone becomes viciously transphobic
RockPusher: Old New Top Gear, got it
TheMerricat: does the pro get time to get used to the car? part of their skill is knowing their own car like the back of their hand....
Wicker_Guide: fans will make one
jacqui_lantern234: GT Sophie dating sim when?!?!

Laserbeaks_Fury: Isnt that just Faye Valentine?
CranstonSnord: too "driven"
NorthstarTex: you must get noticed by senpai sophie
saucemaster5000: I want to fool AROUND with GT Sophie
TheMerricat: Speaking of AI, I've been using Obsidian.md for note taking and in the subreddit for it recently, someone released a plugin that pipes all your notes into one of the GPT AI so you can ask it questions about your notes... I'm conflicted about the idea of sending my notes to a 3rd party. On one hand having something that can remember shit for me is nice, on the other hand....
matthaus_c: I'm picturing GT Sophie as Sailor Uranus
jacqui_lantern234: i wanna date the heck out of GT Sophie
EvilBadman: GT Sophie cannot identify traffic lights

Brozard: What the hell did I come back to
TheMerricat: There is _NOT_ yet a rule 34 page out for GT Sophy....
BusTed: So to speak.
mowdownjoe: BEEJ NO
: CranstonSnord GT Sophy x ChatGPT
jacqui_lantern234: BEEJ YES
Brozard: I mean, fucking an AI is a kind of horror
niccus: remember to finish those captchas fast so that gy sophy doesn't crash
Brozard: OH it's a CAR
Brozard: Is it a car?
Wicker_Guide: well, it's an ai simulated car-driver in Gran Turismo
Brozard: Good for them, I guess
saucemaster5000: Blumhouse is the rare hollywood studio we've yet to hear horror stories about working with
Wicker_Guide: but it has the name "Sophy", therefore date

Laserbeaks_Fury: All movies will feature Steve Blum
Wicker_Guide: "If your movie cost less than catering on the latest avenger's movie, you might be an indie"
EvilBadman: Yeah, Heather
ununseptium: I always thought the classical definition of indie was _not_ having a publisher
matthaus_c: Indie Games are gonna end up becoming more of a vibe thing just like Indie Music did
matthaus_c: I guess maybe we're there already
Wicker_Guide: so how long until we get "folk" gaming for people who don't want to work with even the indie labels? Or is that just ich.io?
fiftymcnasty: Hey, the Lion King game was great
Laserbeaks_Fury: "In Soviet Russia: Block. Drops. You." TETRIS
niccus: i hope we end up with a midbudget kitty horrorshow game or something
TheTekkieman: I could see NOPE: The game.
TehAmelie: an investor who can buy input in the work, i think stops you being indie
: @Laserbeaks_Fury giving a new definition to Soviet Bloc
matthaus_c: oh my god jacqui
Laserbeaks_Fury: This summer, 4 is the DEADLIEST number. TETRIS
: Beej, your bit on the new Nintendo console had me in stitches
Laserbeaks_Fury: Computer: Define the universe
GapFiller: they did OMG Troma
neisan2112: OH Troma
neisan2112: What a hell of a studio
TheMerricat: Toxic Crusaders _was_ the cartoon.
: "Toxic Crusaders is a 1991 animated series aimed at children, loosely based on The Toxic Avenger films" - WTF did I just find
Laserbeaks_Fury: There was an Attack of the Killer Tomatoes game
SoldieroFortune: The universe is a sphereoid regiion approximately 100m in diameter
GapFiller: what does it say when Parker and Stone make the more sensible movies in yr film studios portfolio
TheTekkieman: Deadly Premonition.
TheMerricat: Turning Toxic Avenger into a cartoon was a bit like turning Ghostbusters into a cartoon, neither property was actually aimed at kids whatsoever....
Laserbeaks_Fury: Until Dawn was kinda like playing a horror movie
DeM0nFiRe: It has to have a minimum amount of functionality or it ends up on watch and play
TheMerricat: @Laserbeaks_Fury Almost all the Dark Anthology games as well.
Brozard: or The Quarry
Wicker_Guide: so... ICO?
LordZarano: Monsters Inc the game?
neisan2112: Holy crap
matthaus_c: strong premise
jacqui_lantern234: OH NO
Wicker_Guide: so, super-meat boy
neisan2112: Huh that is pretty Yoshi's Island esq
flamewave7: It's sonic 06 all over again
Lysander_salamander: this sounds distressing
jacqui_lantern234: i dont wanna play this game, i dont wanna see this girl hurting
Lysander_salamander: ok yes, collect the humans
Wicker_Guide: this is very undertale-esque isn't it
Izandai: I love this.
josh___something: aww... She has an ahoge
RockPusher: Why would they want to end their universe?
jacqui_lantern234: this game looks p cute
: i love the style
Pseudonym_Ken: What is this game called?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Subverting RPG tropes
Wicker_Guide: Meg's Monster I think they said
matthaus_c: give Meg a gun
RockPusher: Plot twist! You get badly injuried and she grows an Angry Meter
RockPusher: You wouldn't like Meg when they're angry…
Laserbeaks_Fury: Emotional Xploration Points
Lysander_salamander: oh, the trailer for it definitely references Undertale.
matthaus_c: Pedro Pascal is Meg's Monster
neisan2112: @matthaus_c lmao perfect
josh___something: I'd watch it
RockPusher: Jolf! Jolf! Jolf!
Laserbeaks_Fury: That a lot of term credits
: We have scanned every last blade of grass!
Lysander_salamander: Oh, there's a Demo for Meg's monster
Laserbeaks_Fury: And then they update the courses
RockPusher: 100% true-to-life Ant Fidelity!
Pseudonym_Ken: This is one of the things I do for a living
Laserbeaks_Fury: You can see each individual cat turd in the bunkers
Pseudonym_Ken: Not for videogames thugh
Wicker_Guide: I'm sure we won't see eventual distopic implications of this everrrrrr (:
RockPusher: No bacterium left overlooked!
TheMerricat: "For the contractor, the company may not be comfortable using technology that will require and make possible accuracy of 1/8 of an inch, when before the standard was a stake in the ground every 10 feet."
Wicker_Guide: @Pseudonym_Ken landscaping?
SocraticMethod: @Wicker_Guide Topography is already used in warfare and artillery
Pseudonym_Ken: I'm a professional land surveyor in Alaska. I've done scans of oil field infrastructure, drone flights of highways, stuff like that
RockPusher: Retask the KC-12!
RockPusher: We gotta go scan a golf course!
Tiber727: I'd like to see a golf game with randomly generated courses. Seems like a good fit.
Wicker_Guide: @SocraticMethod sure, it's the mass market availability that concerns me
Lysander_salamander: Got someone in the forums from the dod to commit treason to give us the best golf game
CAKHost: If there was an AI that generated golf courses based on real terrains, I wonder what parts it won't be able to do right.
Ivalenz_: Air Force reconnaissance is all about course quality.
Lysander_salamander: Now I'm feeling slightly nostalgic for Sim Golf
Laserbeaks_Fury: What if they find a body thats been buried there for 20 years
LurkerSpine: I mean, it's a school. The football team is a school team
saucemaster5000: (quietly cancelling my monster truck rental. Damn it.)
Laserbeaks_Fury: Gotta keep putting out new content
Laserbeaks_Fury: Golf Course Patch Notes
EvilBadman: They'll get high confidence scans of Jimmy Hoffa at the Meadowlands.
neisan2112: Or Frolf, the best golf game
Lysander_salamander: part of me is like "golf courses shouldn't exist" in the same vein as "billionaires shouldn't exist," but am I just conflating golf courses being a rich-person's thing?

Laserbeaks_Fury: whast the golf with giant robots?
jacqui_lantern234: @RockPusher oh, my weeby lesbian heart hasnt forgotten
EvilBadman: 100ft Robot Golf @Laserbeaks_Fury
Juliamon: Lysander_salamander Golf courses are horrendously bad for the local habitat, aside from the elitist aspect
Lysander_salamander: Also the golf game where you're dead and you have to golf to get out of hell
TheMerricat: LOL of course there is.
Mai_Andra: Assassin's Creed Syndicate vs Assassin's Creed Origins? simulation vs arcade action
mowdownjoe: That's just Cursed to Golf.
RockPusher: Giant Mecha Golf Course
: IT'S REAL TO ME PAUL
mowdownjoe: @lysander_salamander Cursed to Golf
Laserbeaks_Fury: oh, Apature Science, but it Golf and not Portal testing
Tiber727: @Lysander_salamander There are public golf courses, but it does take a fair amount of resources to maintain the grass constatnly.
: SHUT UP PAUL YES IT IS
EvilBadman: To be fair, wacky golf courses exist in minigolf
RockPusher: I'm sure Bandai Namco are working on it with urgency
Wicker_Guide: @Lysander_salamander Varies. Golf is legit very expensive and exclusive most of the time, but that's not so much an inherent property of golf as an emergent property of the kind of person who wants to walk a closed, manicured course to get "nature"
Lysander_salamander: 100-foot robot golf was on a Crossing the Streams I think
gualdhar: Arizona's football stadium can roll out the field grass, Birdie Golf isn't too far off
Laserbeaks_Fury: Remember the Watch and Play inspired golf game with guns?

RockPusher: I want a spiritual successor to Sim Golf
EvilBadman: Oh, uh look into What the Golf
LordZarano: Even the golf game on the Playdate only uses the crank for aim
LordZarano: And the standard button taps for power
Juliamon: you GOTTA have fishing
kusinohki: I vaguely remember a golf game for the commodore 64 that had you control a stick figure's arms and wrist that determined how the ball was hit...
Laserbeaks_Fury: Golf Battle Royale, you have to sink your ball before 100 other players or get elminated
mowdownjoe: Did anyone mention Spheda in Dark Cloud 2?
gualdhar: @juliamon can you filet the fish for ultra rare golf balls?
SocraticMethod: @Laserbeaks_Fury Tetris 99 was a thing, so ...
Izandai: I hope TOTK has more ways to catch fish that aren't using a fishing rod.

Wicker_Guide: we have always been at war with PlaySony...
Laserbeaks_Fury: Imagine, if Microsoft can't buy ABK, but they're still on the hook to bring Xbox to Nintendo
LurkerSpine: I could see them bringing some stuff, like Ori, to Nintendo
EvilBadman: Ori is on Switch
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is Ori not on Nintendo?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Yeah that seems like a slam dunk port
SocraticMethod: Same for the Will of the Wisps
neisan2112: LMAO, that last comment "If you really cared about gamers you'd put Burger King Trilogy on game pass"
LordZarano: So they're considering CoD to be an "Xbox game"
Tiber727: @LordZarano Nah, they're doing a dog and pony show to say, "Plaes let us buy ActiBlizz. We already promised if we bought it it wouldn't be exclusive!"
Izandai: Imagine if they added the original XBOX to NSO.
RockPusher: Also - Microsoft and Nintendo negotiating cross-platform agreements - wonder what Nintendo might offer in return… [✂️]
LurkerSpine: Sony has always spent money to deny the full CoD to any other platform (at least delay it for years)
SocraticMethod: Doesn't Nintendo have their own streaming service? Could use that.
neisan2112: All this could not matter one bit later in the year if it doesn't go through
: I don't look forward to someone claiming that the textures are different or the ray tracing algorithm is different or some nonesense
Tiber727: @RockPusher Nintendo wouldn't offer games to other consoles. This is strictly a deal to let other companies make money on a Nintendo console, so long as Nintendo gets a cut.
rubikdarkwill: Those Series 11 DVDs XD
neisan2112: I mean for CoD a solo campaing is a feature that's not garunteed
Tiber727: Even if Microsoft promised to put CoD on the Switch, they could probably do bare minimum efforet to fulfill obligations.
BusTed: tru tho
neisan2112: No I just saw it on there
ThorSokar: HELL YA Sneak King
EvilBadman: Put Rare Replay on the Switch
LurkerSpine: Sneak King I think is the only good one/
BrindleBoar: so they're a burgamer
ThorSokar: Legit, Sneak King is very fun
Invitare: they also might be a real king
GapFiller: nice flex Heather
BrindleBoar: they ought to submit to these people's demands, having beef with them is dangerous
LordZarano: And both consoles will have Gold, Gold+, Platinum, Collectors Edition, and all the other mutually incomplete versions of the game?

ThorSokar: They're also the only games every released for 2 systems on the same disk before (OG Xbox and 360 versions of the game are on the same disk)
They_Are_Alyx: CoD makes like a bajillion dollars every year, so
Wicker_Guide: I played CoD: Ghosts, the game sucking is not sufficient to keep it from being successful\
RockPusher: Tanks‽ In CoD‽
Laserbeaks_Fury: Whats the Mastadon of CoD
neisan2112: Yeah CoD used to get traded off between 2 studios everyother year
EvilBadman: MS had an in with Halo Infinite and fumbled that ball
SocraticMethod: Not so much as changed studios as there are multiple parallel projects
SocraticMethod: "sent to CoD mines" was a phrase for a reason
ThorSokar: last I heard CoD rotates between 3 studios to keep up the yearly release schedule so each studio gets 3 years of dev time
LordZarano: OH! What if Microsoft winds down CoD as a major franchise and pumps massive marketing into their own exclusive replacement?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Especially with power creators like Adam Savidan making quality WoW videos
Walkingharder: I think trying to be CoD killer is about as fruitless as trying to be a WoW killer. You can't focus on trying to be another game but better but let your game be as good as it can be
EvilBadman: The COD Killer is the next installment of COD, ad infinitum
Izandai: King is the power behind the throne, ironically.
Laserbeaks_Fury: This was back when Blizzard was great at iterating
neisan2112: Brand recognition is MASSIVE
Laserbeaks_Fury: I hate the world CoD is set in
Laserbeaks_Fury: I just make Anthem
SocraticMethod: Bad game won't kill CoD franchise. It will need multiple bad games in a row. Too much momentum and brand recognition
Patorik: I kinda forgot for a minute that I wasn't watching this on Youtube. Hi Chat!
RockPusher: The Purge!
GapFiller: wheeler being on tnite wd be worrying since he only just went live on his channel
: talking about *all* the magic cards? That'll take a while
Wicker_Guide: Oh, adam caved
Tiber727: @LordZarano Nah. There's a reason *everything* is a remake or sequel or whatever nowadays.
gualdhar: Is it a purge, or a cleanse?
definenull: oh no
GapFiller: Adam Doki Doki Hype!
Wicker_Guide: Adam was shocked by actual decent character writing
Metric_Furlong: The Game That Heather Likes™

Wicker_Guide: 1.13 HYPE
TheEuphoGuy: Yay Glurp!
SocraticMethod: I've only seen highlight clips and there is more "riding on" cards that I feel comfortable with.
Snowcookies: ty for the stream!
Metric_Furlong: og vanguard anime was 2011 iirc

Metric_Furlong: (all 4 Furlong Points™ still unclaimed, if there are any last minute guessing game players hanging around)
neisan2112: I can't figure out what any of these are, and I love it
: to be fair, this is one of those times where I could put most of their original names up and it probably wouldn't help much
Metric_Furlong: (like, the youngest one on there is from 2004, and not one of the well-known ones from 2004)
Metric_Furlong: I do appreciate it though, some of these don't have titles that lend themselves well to obfuscating
: ("what? are you saying 'donwtime with ronnie the octuplet' is a bit of a stretch?" )
Metric_Furlong: ok, that should be enough votes now
Metric_Furlong: time to close it, thank you to everyone who voted
Juliamon: I forget what I voted for but I hope it wins
Metric_Furlong: the overall winner: A Texen Operating System
Metric_Furlong: aka Dallos
Metric_Furlong: (a 1983 science fiction OVA)
Metric_Furlong: beating-out: Destiny of the Shrine Maiden (to dance and clean temples); DT Eightron (downtime with ronnie the octuplet) and Devilman (superinhuman)
